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.

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.

Any votes for who had the best draft? I'm really leaning toward Detroit and NYI right now.

Thunder Turkey

1.) 25 Jun 2018 19:27:51
NYI getting Wahlstrom and Dobson at 11/ 12 was so good for them.
I had those two in my top ten.
I didn't have Arizona, Vancouver and NYRs picks in my top ten.
Detriot getting Zadina was very good.
Very surprised Arizona took a center instead of Zadina tho, a scoring winger like Zadina is just what Arizona needs not another center after saying they traded for Galchenyuk to play center. Stepan-Galchenyuk-Strome- Dvorak. Now Hayton (I think) . Strange pick to me.

2.) 26 Jun 2018 11:19:47
Chayka said u don’t trade for #1 centres you ha e to draft them and develop them so my guessing is the coyotes scouting staff are really high on him and they think he has first line potential.



21 Jun 2018 21:48:32
Barry Trotz has signed with NYI - really revamped this team for JT by the looks of it. I don't think he is going anywhere. Signs for $11M/year.

Thunder Turkey

1.) 22 Jun 2018 08:54:06
He’s going to sign after July 1st at this point. I truly think he’ll sign for 2 maybe 3 years on the leafs then return to the NYI when their prostoect develop more and also get a few more once they become a lottery team because losing JT almost means they are going to be a bottom team for the next 2 years.

2.) 22 Jun 2018 11:07:23
NYI will sign him, what's with every leaf fan thinking every superstar wants to play for them. Lol

3.) 22 Jun 2018 17:43:01
Well Toronto is his home town but the biased media definitely plays a part in the thoughts.

4.) 22 Jun 2018 22:50:36
A099 is a Canucks fan I believe. And I’m a leafs fan and I’ve said I still believe he stays in NYI but IF he doesn’t, Toronto is a logical landing spot. I don’t think leafs fans all think everyone is coming here, definitely more media driven than actual fans. Leafs fans are as hopeful as any other fanbase at the prospect of landing a prime aged superstar, don’t think we are alone in that.



26 Apr 2018 15:22:01
I was impressed with the way Plekanec played the last few games with the Leafs. Many said this might be the end of his time in the NHL but i think he can still contribute. But he is definitely not worth the contract he was on.
I have heard rumors that he would be back with the Habs after this season, but he looked better with the leafs in the playoffs then he did with the Habs all year. Do you think they try and resign him in Toronto?

Thunder Turkey

1.) 26 Apr 2018 18:46:28
i wouldn't mind a 1 year/ 2 million if he's willing. he's very versatile, except for the fourth line, even tho those r the easiest minutes.

2.) 26 Apr 2018 20:28:04
I personally thought his heart wasn’t in it since being traded but Plekanec played very well in the playoffs. Him and about 5 others showed up every game. They really need to resign him or Bozak, maybe both. The Center depth would be pretty weak without them.

3.) 27 Apr 2018 10:12:27
No not with all the youth they have to give more time to next year. Maybe if Bozak doesn't sign and they're desperate but idk.

4.) 27 Apr 2018 10:13:59
Actually he looked exactly the same with the habs. its just you didn't notice him then.



16 Mar 2018 18:10:14
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.

Probably a no from Toronto. if they pay him what he is asking i would be hesitant - if he was around the 5.5M/ season for 6 years i would be happy. But not at the $7M he is asking.

I find he can be one dimensional - and i'm a habs fan. He has the size to be more of an impact player but just doesn't do it.

I could see Panarin. I think he was upset when they traded him. Get back on his old line and light it up.

Oilers fans won't like this. Also, i think Kotk should not be in the NHL yet.
