Brassard to the penguins for Ian Cole, Gustafson and a 1st. They are set down the middle again.

Thunder Turkey

1.) 23 Feb 2018 23:46:13
Trades been rejected by NHL because they tried having Vegas retain some money on it too with creative paperwork. Apparently it’s being revised.

2.) 24 Feb 2018 03:01:01
Its finalized now. I feel like the sens lost this trade. SMH dorion

3.) 24 Feb 2018 04:50:59
Are you insane? i am happy as a clam with that return. Great trade for the Sens.

4.) 24 Feb 2018 04:57:25
Or maybee every one was right about this being a sellers market. Grabner only got a second.

5.) 24 Feb 2018 05:25:14
It’s a great trade for the sens! Brassard is good and all but in what world does a team pay that price to get a third line center. three peat for the sens though?

6.) 24 Feb 2018 05:44:26
Pens** not sens haha.

7.) 24 Feb 2018 06:08:49
Pens have a chance to three-peat but Tampa and Nashville will both do something strong at deadline.
They will be hard to beat.

8.) 24 Feb 2018 06:33:51
Did Brassard jus go from a decent 2nd line Center to best 3rd line ctr in hockey? .
Good return by Dorion. More than I thought they would get.

9.) 24 Feb 2018 16:35:21
Unbiased Jim. rewird yoir entry to ". rejected by bettman. "

I'm pretty sure he has last say in everything, even if the board of governors out vote him.

C J. Kyrou

R. Nash

1st 2018
D J. Zboril

D. Mike Green

1st 2018

D A. Borgman

Thunder Turkey

1.) 13 Feb 2018 18:39:49
Sorry to burst your bubble. Darmstrong Stated he is not trading his top Prospects (Thomas, Kyrou, Kostin, ) Top rookies (Dunn, Thompson), Top draft picks (2018 2nd, 2019 1st) or Fabbri for a rental type deal.

Also out of all the guys that have been rumored to the blues. I would think Kane would be the least palatable player with his locker room BS, On ice BS and Personal BS. Besides the fact that he is cold as poo right now.

2.) 13 Feb 2018 18:42:45
If toronto wants Mike for that price I am down with it. Good deep draft this year Hopefully Kenny H and his team don't f this draft up plenty of good potential players. Hell I would be will to dump Nyquist, tatar, and a few others for as many picks in the top 93 picks this year.

3.) 13 Feb 2018 18:44:59
I can actually see all of them happening. not sure Green is what the Leafs need? I think they need more of a tough hard noses Dman. they have skill in Gardiner and Reilly. obviously Green wouldn't hurt em, but If Leafs could find an Intimidating Dman. (big hitter, crease clearer. ) . I think would help em out.

4.) 13 Feb 2018 19:16:55
If I were blues I’d hang up.
Leafs don’t need offense from the point, they need a real defender.
If I were Bruins I would be curious at that. I know where zboril was drafted but don’t know a lot more, so clearly depends how they view him. However that pick should be very late and the big heavy game bruins play could be a great fit for Nash. I think the east is as open as it has been in a long time for these playoffs and with the way they have been playing i think the Bruins should look to capitalize. Rask is playing the best he has in years, have one of, if not the best line the league and a lot of youth outperforming expectations. As a leaf fan, I don’t wanna see them get better. But if I were Sweeney, I’d be tempted for sure.

5.) 14 Feb 2018 00:44:45
Redwing, you saying old poo? Cause poo is fairly hot when it first comes out, clearify please.

6.) 14 Feb 2018 05:01:15
I'm sorry let's say cold as 5 week b old poo in Alberta on Christmas day.

7.) 14 Feb 2018 16:27:53
lol @ Colt, never change bud.

8.) 14 Feb 2018 16:31:51
#1 Acquiring Kane is a mistake. Too much trouble I would
never give that for a rental that's been nothing but
trouble his whole career.

#2 Overpayment for a rental, but Nash might have a bidding
war that nets this type of return in the end. You Could
be onto something with a realistic trade there.

#3 Looks like a good trade value wise, but I don't think the
leafs are in a cap position to take on Green's Salary
unless they move out another salary in another trade.



08 Feb 2018 20:44:06
Get ready to see some rangers on the move. Their recent release said to be ready to lose some familiar faces.

Thunder Turkey

1.) 08 Feb 2018 22:51:01
Although jus there a short time. see Smith was placed on Waivers. to bad he has 3 more years after this. I liked his toughness last year against our Canadiens.

2.) 09 Feb 2018 15:51:57
I agree, i was trying to think - did they do that so they can take a bad contract from somewhere else in a bid deal and keep him in the system for next year?



31 Jan 2018 17:17:31
Fischer is coming out of retirement and joining Nashville for the rest of the year.

Thunder Turkey

1.) 31 Jan 2018 18:01:48
I had a feeling he wouldn't stay away.



17 Oct 2017 19:44:16
Not putting much weight into this, but there are some rumblings after Marc Bergevin was attending the Islanders game. Apparently not the first game either.
The speculation in the article i read was a 3 way trade with the Avs, but still don't think MTL has the assets to get anything done anymore. Another sad day for Habs fans.

Thunder Turkey

1.) 17 Oct 2017 20:01:36
As of two days ago Bergevin had been to 4 Islanders games. More than his own teams games.
Heavy speculation that with approx $8.5M in cap space he is pushing real damn hard for Tavares and that everyone is available for trades expect for Price, Weber, Drouin, Mete. Even Paciorety is available.
So what do they have to trade with any bit of value that could fetch Tavares. Or just wait until off season and give him a blank cheque basically?

2.) 17 Oct 2017 21:01:17
I've read that :

Montreal : Tavares, Leddy

NYI: Pacioretty, Duchesne, 2nd 2018 MTL, Lindgreen,

AVS : Galchenyuk, Juulseen.

3.) 17 Oct 2017 22:07:21
Believe me, i'd be damn happy if Tavares came over to the Habs, but i don't think that deal would do it at all.

4.) 17 Oct 2017 22:54:37
Avs did not hold out this long to get galchenyuk and juulsen for him lol no way sakic does that. If he signs that, he might as well resign after. Better to keep Duchene and attempt to repai fractured relationship and use his production at 6 mill than take galchenyuk at 4.9 and only get juulsen as an extra.

5.) 18 Oct 2017 04:55:33
The fact that Galchenyuk got 44 points compared to Duchenes 41 in less games kinda shows that Duchene is at an all time low in trade value and the fact that Colorado would get a dman prospect would make them come out winning. Montreal gets their bonafide #1 center that they desperately need and islanders get a good roster replacement for Tavares in Duchene and a first line winger in Pacioretty.

6.) 18 Oct 2017 13:54:53
Galchenyuk had bit better season offensively speaking last year but Duchene has a track record of 6-7 years before that of putting up good numbers including 70 pt seasons and 43 in 48 in lockout year. Numbers that galchenyuk hasn't been close to and I would bet never does reach. Last year was miserable for Duchene and the whole avs team, if he was 33 years old I might think his value takes a big hit because people may think it's the beginning of a decline. But at 26, it's a blip on the radar of a good career. He's built for the way the game is now with speed and skill and will be a good player for years. Because of last season, teams will low ball offer sakic for sure, try to steal him, but it's only logical to assume that's already happened as this has been going on for a year and he's still there. They aren't going to accept it now.

7.) 18 Oct 2017 13:59:42
Sakic obviously has more faith in Duchene returning to form than he has in anything he's been offered or he would have started the season elsewhere. And I'd be shocked if they weren't offered galchenyuk in a package at some point because he was apparently shopped a lot this summer and habs wanted Duchene. Only makes sense they already turned that down.

Anyone want to make some predictions on the playoff line up?

Thunder Turkey

1.) 16 Mar 2018 20:50:03
I'm so original. But I'm liking Tampa, Preds, Jets, Pens.
I think I'm cheering for a Bolts Jets final. Jets win.
But I'm thinking as most people a Bolts Preds final would be damn good. Preds maybe the favorite.

2.) 17 Mar 2018 00:01:20
What I have is:

Bolts and Jackets out of the East and Sharks and Preds out of the West.

What I want to see happen:

Leafs and Pens and Jets and Vegas.

3.) 17 Mar 2018 03:06:37
Only two teams I care about are not going to make it.



26 Feb 2018 20:06:21
So.... who thought Vanek would get a 1st round plus? lol

Thunder Turkey

1.) 26 Feb 2018 21:02:34
Not me but he really didn't get anything lol.

2.) 26 Feb 2018 21:33:51
I'm going to say., actually pretty impressed by Bergevin this deadline. did a good job

I thought Vanek would get a lot more to be honest, and I thought him and Pittsburgh woulda been perfect.

3.) 26 Feb 2018 21:52:53
I'm happy MB just didn't try to do too much. Moving out Morrow, Jarabek and Pleky works for me, but who did we get from the wild for a 4th? Was that just to fill our roster? Would rather let some guys come up from Laval to get some ice time.

4.) 26 Feb 2018 22:35:05
Mike Reilly defence man was sought after when he came out of college and it was a 5th not a 4th.

5.) 26 Feb 2018 23:17:11
They received Reilly. . a 6th Dman or Laval bound. but not a horrible pick up.

6.) 27 Feb 2018 00:18:38
Mike reily for a 5th is what we got from the wild. i think he could be a good pickup. He's an upgrade over morrow for sure.



19 Jan 2018 16:29:23
I just read a quote from Dreger that IF Tavaras was to sign somewhere else, it would probably require an offer of $15M x 7 years to pry him away.
I have been with you Sosa on getting him, but at that cost? i was hoping the $13M x 8 year mark was going to be enough.

Thunder Turkey

1.) 19 Jan 2018 16:54:27
I read one executive say that they heard if Tavares hits the open market someone will offer him 7 years- $105M, $15M per season.
That's nuts if true!

2.) 19 Jan 2018 20:00:46
That is what Dreger is saying MTL's proposal would have to be.

3.) 19 Jan 2018 20:20:24
Dreger is full of you know what. Always has been. but at that price I would hope no team would be that silly. He will sign for less then that.

4.) 19 Jan 2018 20:56:48
Holey crap on a stick, that's a lot of money.

5.) 19 Jan 2018 21:34:05
I thought that 13x8 would be where he signs. basically 1 extra year and $2M less than what this report is suggesting.

6.) 19 Jan 2018 22:25:54
Ya., Turkey. I want him on Habs, but not at that price. not a chance.

7.) 20 Jan 2018 17:32:09
Is that the rumor out of Montreal? That Bergavin would offer $15M per year 7 years $105M of Tavares hits the open free agency market? Wow.

8.) 20 Jan 2018 19:49:27
No yup it's a rumor Darren dreger started more b. s from him as usual.

9.) 21 Jan 2018 00:43:58
Well it wasn't from Dreger I heard this.
Follow closely. I forget who said, But he said that he heard some GM executive say that there is a GM out there that has said he would offer $105M for 7 years, $15M a year for Tavares if he hits the open market.
No name was connected to that. Not Dreger, not M. B
That's why I asked, you guys made it sound like that was actually MB. And that would be hilarious awesome.

10.) 21 Jan 2018 05:15:29
Yes I read that too yup it came out right after dreger made the same statement. I could be wrong but I assumed the latter was just repeating and adding to what dreger said.

11.) 21 Jan 2018 06:59:20
Wow. If Canadians GM is putting it out there he would give $15M a year to Tavares, That's just nuts.
How do you guys feel about that?
$10.5M to a goalie when he's 29 until 37. Weber.

12.) 21 Jan 2018 15:54:21
Bergevin didn't say it cause that would actually be tampering if he did. No gm has ever said what they were going to offer another teams ufa lol.

13.) 21 Jan 2018 18:16:01
Never said I heard he said it directly. An executive said he heard someone would. He didn't name names. It's not tampering.

People are getting really tricky when it comes to tampering now. Basically talking about a player without saying their name. "Hey I hear you might be in the market for a right handed D man, One who's 28, big, Is this maybe true? " Agents talking to GMs like this is happening a lot.

14.) 21 Jan 2018 20:15:36
You can talk about it to other gms as much as you want but if an executive of any team said the bergevin said he was going to offer tavares 15 mil or anything else that would be going down a slippery slope on his part. If this report is at all true and not just more dreger bs. Then it was just an executive who has nothing to do with the situation speculating a team in his opinion might offer tavares 15 mil.



15 Dec 2017 15:20:29
So much talk about Karlsson, let's do another list... top 5 Offensive D and top 5 Defensive D... you can repeat people in both lists. Interested to see who everyone has up there. Maybe do a top 5 overall as well.

Thunder Turkey

1.) 15 Dec 2017 15:49:44
Top 5 offensive
5. OEL

Top 5 Defensive

Honestly the Top Defensive ones are hard. Lol. as I'm probably way off.

Top 5 overall.
1. Hedman
2. Doughty
3. Karlsson
4. Burns
5. Keith.

2.) 15 Dec 2017 16:43:30
I was having a hard time with that one too and is why i'm having a hard time really assigning a value to Karlsson when if he goes to a team that doesn't need the amount of offense he produces for the contract he is going to get.
But for defense, i looked at Zaitsev and he has 62 hits, 92 blocked shots and still in the right side of the +/ -. Same with Provorov, sitting nicely in d-stats.

3.) 15 Dec 2017 17:14:17
I forgot about Zaitsev. Ya he's really good defensively

I guess with Defensive Dmen. if they aren't noticed. they are playing the right way. Lol. I dunno.

Kinda think they need 2 awards.
Keep the Norris for the top Dman. ad its been tradition. but . Bobby Orr award. Or something, to recognize the not as flashy, but important shut down Dman.
Have an award for the gentleman player. how bout an award for something more important.

4.) 15 Dec 2017 17:36:30
It’s a tough list/ lists. At this point you’d have to include mcavoy in there, peitrangelo could be multiple, Josi. you’d have to literally watch every game to know whose top 5 offensive/ defensive. things like plus-minus and points don’t really do anyone justice. Some guys get more power play time, some Play with more talented teams/ partners.

5.) 15 Dec 2017 19:37:07
currently alex pietrangelo is better than keith and oel for ofd, and better than vlassic suter on dd.

6.) 15 Dec 2017 19:41:22
. I totally forgot about Peitrangelo. Ya. take my list and jus ignore it lol
. To damn hard.

7.) 16 Dec 2017 19:43:03
Karlsson. Hedman. Burns. I would say are the big top three. But guys emerge all the time and they are slumping. So it's like a big rotating group from month to month I think.
Petro was. It's guys Norris winner at the quarter mark this season.
I've always liked Kieth, up to a seaso or two ago he was to me the best in the league for about 6 years while they won their cups.
Guys like Josi, Doughty, even OEL are always in this conversation as well. Suter top minutes guy in the league I think he gets mentions.



01 Dec 2017 17:46:55
Marc Bergevin acquires a slap in the face.

Geoff Molson acquires all of the pens in MB's office.

This works because Bergevin can't sign anything any more and Molson can feel like he contributed to something positive.
Works for both sides.

Thunder Turkey

1.) 01 Dec 2017 18:16:11
Best. Proposal. Ever. Period.

2.) 01 Dec 2017 19:39:25
I try to stay neutral and realistic, even if I am a habs fan.

3.) 01 Dec 2017 20:41:11
Love It! Lol.
Hey Turkey. how bout the Blockbuster? Cracknell for Holland? Think that changes our season? Lol.

4.) 01 Dec 2017 21:07:16
Really made everyone forget about the NJ and ANA trade, EH!
I have a feeling that was some sort of preliminary handshake before they try and put something together of a different caliber.

5.) 02 Dec 2017 03:09:43
Don't forget the 5th rounder MB traded for for the rebuild on the fly!

Great 2 way player - No. I like him, great scoring touch and what kills me is he has the size to be a better 2 way player. He gets a lot of criticism for it as well - he would lay out a great hit if he did it more often. But he is offensively minded.
Is he our best player. have to say that right now he isn't because he is having a down year. But if you go back to a season ago - ya, he was our best forward. but if you have price playing at his peak; that guy is damn good.

Would i build a team around him - no. I understand that his own team voted him in for the 'C' but he wasn't up against much at that time. Personally, building around a winger really hasn't proved to work in the league we are in right now. That being said, i would rather keep him on my team and get a real 1C and see what he can actually do.

Trade value - pretty much see him getting a 1st round mid-pick and a decent prospect. Or possibly an A prospect with a 2nd and have a condition if he resigns it becomes a first. That might be too much, but being a habs fan i think i'm always going to overvalue my guys - just hope it isn't drastically delusional.
I typically don't respond to too much on here, although i check the site a few times a day and read pretty much everything. So who knows. maybe I just haven't had the chance to be told I'm insane yet, lol.
