Toronto: Hornqvist and 2018 first.

Pittsburgh: Bozak (50%) and Komarov.


1.) 29 Dec 2017 04:02:24
Hornqvist > bozak, and komarov is definitely not worth a first, even if its a late one.



04 Nov 2017 14:46:34
Since Montreal wants to trade Price. How about he comes back home to B. C. Vancouver trades Markstrom, Boeser and a 1st for Price.


1.) 04 Nov 2017 15:18:58
Vancouver has Demko almost ready to go, so they will have an elite goalie soon anyway. No from Van but not because of the value.

2.) 04 Nov 2017 15:19:21
Lol are you serious
You don't have any player that has Price value or not even more than the half of his value
Wanna trade your best player for 20 pucks?

3.) 04 Nov 2017 17:53:22
Demko is a lottery ticket, not a guaranteed elite goalie. Remember Justin pogge for the leafs? Rated #1 goalie prospect in the world. or jack Campbell, top 10 or 12 pick and supposed to be Dallas star goalie.? And many more stories like that. Until the kid is consistently playing in the nhl and putting up great numbers, he’s a lottery ticket. Being a good NCAA goalie or a good AHL goalie is not reason for a team to pass on a carry price lol.

Can I have horvat?

5.) 04 Nov 2017 22:22:57
This is ridiculous my goodness wtf.

6.) 05 Nov 2017 00:57:38
What do you mean with Horvat? Make a counter offer. If you want Horvat for Price, 1 for 1. Sure I think the Canucks will do that. I would.

7.) 05 Nov 2017 09:25:15
You can have Andersen. We'll add Bozak and Marner for Price.



13 May 2017 13:26:37
What if Vancouver trades the forth round pick they got from San Jose to Dallas for Nieme or Lehtonen and Dallas third. Vancouver can then tank and try to rebuild through the draft.


1.) 13 May 2017 16:08:53
Dont think Canucks are going to have to try and "tank" to get good draft picks for the next while.



23 Apr 2017 01:33:39
Toronto: 2017 2nd round pick and Kerby Rychel

Vancouver: Erik Gudbranson

I really think this trade works for both teams. Toronto gets a top 4 penalty killing defenseman. Vancouver gets a young winger with size and physicality and another draft pick.


1.) 23 Apr 2017 05:06:17
This is interesting but I'm not sure Gudbranson is the solution to Toronto's D-problems. Toronto also got Rychel for the purpose of going towards rebuild. So I don't think they want to trade their young forwards like Rychel yet.

Value wise, I think it's close. Maybe a 3rd instead of 2nd.

2.) 23 Apr 2017 14:33:39
Leafs need a better defenceman than Erik Gudbranson.
Your value is fine for this trade, but if the Leafs wanna be serious contenders next year they'll need at least one more really good top 4 d-man. Gudbranson kinda just a number 4 d-man. Nothing more nothing less.

3.) 24 Apr 2017 15:47:59
Good trade, Toronto barely gave up any valuable assets and they bring in a guy that can fill out the top six, while helpping out Van. Toronto can't just fix all their problems with one move, there have to be tiny pieces as well.



02 Feb 2017 01:47:57
Hanifin for Duchene straight up!


1.) 02 Feb 2017 02:28:50
Avs add 1st rounder + Zadarovsky

2.) 02 Feb 2017 04:34:25
Boris you should actually just change your name to biggest troll so it's easier for people to know

Will Mark Hunter take over as Canucks president of hockey operations? I personally hope so.


1.) 26 Jul 2018 04:58:11
Why? What does he bring other than London knights specialty? I personally don’t see much value in bringing him and I rather have benning take over that job and see how things go.

2.) 26 Jul 2018 15:45:58
I hope not he’s drafted well for the leafs.

3.) 26 Jul 2018 16:10:00
A099 he is extremely educated and connected in the CHL, not just OHL or London. He’s a great guy at assessing talent in young players which is a guy I would want as a part of my rebuild, if not leading it. He obviously has a bias towards Knights because he knows these kids, their families, their character etc. He drafted and developed marner down there, but he also identified Dermott from Erie as a 2nd rounder from watching him a lot against London and lots of others. I don’t necessarily thinks he needs to be president, but it would be foolish not to let him be a part of accumulating prospects for you if he wanted to be.



14 Apr 2018 01:15:06
So I'm wondering how does Kadri get 3 games and Dustin Brown got a fine for pretty much the same hit. I'm starting to think Kings players are treated differently.


1.) 14 Apr 2018 07:24:34
You say this two days after Doughty gets suspended for 1 game? 🤔🤔

As a Canuks fan you just really dislike the Kings. Inundertand that.
Kadri is a repeat offender and deserved his suspension. Can't believe people argue he's not a complete douchebag. I know people defended him a ton not too long ago.

2.) 14 Apr 2018 13:47:06
I think the hit was called for you can’t let players go after your star players but imo he deserved a 1 game suspension I think 3 is to much. Dirty his but not an intent to injure.

3.) 14 Apr 2018 13:51:41
Kadri deserved 2, which equates to around 5reg season. 3 is a bit much imo, cause that's like 7-8 reg season, but its a crackdown, so it makes sense.

However, if Marchand/ Backes pull out antics like this in the future of this series and don't get punishment, i'm going to be upset, cause this does set a standard.

4.) 14 Apr 2018 16:16:46
You say the hit was warranted then say there was no intent to injure? Lol “the good for him for sticking up for a teammate” argument is bad. Drop the gloves with him and sit out for 5 minutes not run him from behind and sit for 3 games. I also think the wingels hit should’ve been a penalty and the brown hit you refered to should’ve been a suspension.

5.) 14 Apr 2018 16:18:09
Also TopShelf isn’t it just double? 3 playoff games is equivalent to 6 regular season games I think.

6.) 14 Apr 2018 17:50:00
I don’t like that Kadri was suspended 3 playoff games but it’s was a deserved punishment. I’m a Kadri fan. He plays an important role and does it on the edge but keeps to the right side of the line most of the time. This was way over that line.
I get the frustration because he was called for boarding on wingels just before it for a perfectly clean hit from the side, then wingels fell awkward and I believe the ref let the crowds reaction influence his call. Then after getting that bad call, he sees the same guy throw a late elbow to marners head and he loses it. I get why he was pissed and went after him, but can’t drive a guy from behind when he’s alrwady on his knees. Stupid play.
Kadri fought joe Thornton (6’5 230) and Backes (6’3 225) 3 times while being like 6’0 180. So there’s no reason he couldn’t have just stood up for marner against wingels in a better way.

7.) 14 Apr 2018 18:01:09
And @ Yup there’s a lot worse players in the league than Kadri lol You know, like Milan Lucic who is twice the size and spends his whole game taking liberties on smaller guys and also made a travesty of a 90 year tradition of class and respect by threatening to murder a player in a handshake line. Let’s reign in the ‘complete douchebag’ comments in your glass house lol at least kadris, as bad as it was, was at full speed in the middle of a game. Not 5 min after a game.

8.) 14 Apr 2018 21:03:12
Almost every team has a douche bag. Kadri used to be a lot worse. He has played a little smarter since Babcock took over. I agree with Ebs that Kadri should’ve dropped the gloves instead. I also agree with Jim that Lucic is a douche bag as well and yup knows it. Kadri just happens to be a much better hockey player at a cap friendly price. I really think Martin should be in the line up when you play a beast of a team like the Bruins. I got to hand it to Komarov for not taking a penalty on the biggest douche bag in the league, Marchand. Unfortunately he’s the best player/ douche bag in the league. There needs to be a Marchand, “no kissing” rule made up. Was it Cooke that the league made a rule for waving his arms in front of Brodeur? That kind of crap should be an unsportsmanlike at least. Anyways, it could be a short series if the leafs don’t stay out of the box. They can’t match up physically but they have to try.

9.) 15 Apr 2018 04:46:03
That was avery @leafs17.

And yeah @ebs, it probably is just double. I kinda say its like 2-3 reg season to 1 playoff, so ab 2.5 reg season.

10.) 15 Apr 2018 16:52:49
Thanks topshelf. I forgot about that d bag.

11.) 17 Apr 2018 12:08:26
I still laugh that you said "I'm starting to think kings players are treated differently" the day after Doughty was goven a one game suspension. If they were treated any different he wouldn't have been suspended.

12.) 17 Apr 2018 18:51:21
Yeah, I don’t think the doughty one deserved a suspension to be honest, don’t think it was any worse than sergachevs last night. Doughty went for a clean hit and got his head by accident, sergachev got a guy without the puck, blindside, elbow to the face. I don’t think he went looking for it, but when he saw their paths were crossing and the guy was completely unaware, he definitely followed through and didn’t make any attempt to let up or minimize contact.

13.) 18 Apr 2018 05:49:23
The league suspended him. And a day after this guys complains and thinks the league is treating kings players favorably. 🤔.



22 Mar 2018 03:04:40
With nobody knowing what goaltender interference is. Do you think more goaltenders will get run? If a goalie is stealing a game. Just drive right through him. Maybe you can get him off his game. Maybe the goal will count as well.


1.) 22 Mar 2018 07:23:31
I think if goalies just flop more when touched it could get out of control. Lots have even commented on that.

2.) 22 Mar 2018 04:22:28
That would be nothing new goalies have been getting ran since the 20s.

3.) 22 Mar 2018 16:45:18
With the decision going to video review in Toronto. if they do flop, could they be assigned a diving penalty?

4.) 22 Mar 2018 18:30:21
@thunder, I don’t think that will ever happen and I don’t think I want video review being able to assess penalties. That starts getting really dangerous and takes the game completely out of the refs hands. I do support the league cracking down on diving and embellishing with fines or suspensions after the game to keep maintain integrity. I just don’t think I’d wanna see a phone call from another city calling penalties during the game. That would open the door for a whole new level of controversy.

5.) 22 Mar 2018 21:03:03
I agree with you Jim. i was thinking that Ref's would assign that penalty. I can't remember who brought it up, but Yup's comment reminded me of some terrible flops i have seen in the past.

6.) 22 Mar 2018 23:13:55
I say that because some goalies who don't flop and are getting pissed off about this whole thing have even come out and said "if I just flop when I'm touched I'll get the call"

7.) 23 Mar 2018 16:04:42
Yeah. I hate the diving. They need to figure out the situation before it gets where flopping is the best way players can control it. I think having the same 3-4 guys in the situation room making the calls instead of 36 referees on any given night will clean it up a lot. Will always have controversy and open to interpretation, but consistency is a lot easier with fewer eyes.



04 Mar 2018 03:28:47
The all white uniforms by Toronto are terrible!


1.) 04 Mar 2018 04:00:07
The uniforms aren’t as terrible as they have played lol cool spectacle but outdoor games are always crap hockey. I like the point of making them like the naval uniform, but blue pants may have been better. Just tried making them different than the last 2 outdoor games I guess.

2.) 04 Mar 2018 05:15:45
Yeah the outdoor thing is getting a little over played.

3.) 04 Mar 2018 06:17:39
They should have done a winter classic on New Years every year and that’s it. Then it would still be a big deal and feel special. Instead, I forgot they even had this game till 10 days ago looking ahead at the schedule. Only positive of them is that the revenue is massive and that’s what helps the salary cap rise. 20 outdoor games over the last 5 years probably gave each team an additional $7-8 mill in cap space.

4.) 04 Mar 2018 13:36:45
They are trying to grow the game with these games. Have whole weekend festivities. Sometimes alumni games. Sometimes AHL games day after. Concerts. While weekend of hockey festivities trying to gain more fans with this experience. That's the idea behind so many. Just like going to China and Europe for games. Just trying to expand their product to more people.

5.) 04 Mar 2018 21:59:57
@yup. I agree that’s the point, but I just mean for guys like us, already fans, it’s really lost it’s appeal and uniqueness, that’s all. When they only did the winter classic, and the heritage classic I guess, it was really cool. But when there's 4-5 a season it just doesn’t have the same feel.



03 Mar 2018 16:14:50
Is Drouin the biggest bust of the 2013 draft?


1.) 03 Mar 2018 16:45:44
No shinkurak is lol.

2.) 03 Mar 2018 16:45:59
Or morin or poirer.

3.) 03 Mar 2018 16:47:58
Or rychel or lazar or nichuskin or klimchuk.

4.) 03 Mar 2018 17:01:09
Lol no.

5.) 04 Mar 2018 10:23:30
No but it does look bad when an undersized middling 2nd line winger is sandwiched inbetween players like MacKinnon, Barkov, Jones, Monahan and even Lindholm to an extent.

6.) 04 Mar 2018 10:28:42
No obviously right now he would be ranked number 3. I still think in a couple of years he could be a 70 points even 80 points player. He's proven enough that we know he'll be an impact player in the league but not enough to be the 3 best player of that draft. i'd say in a redraft he still goes top 5.

7.) 04 Mar 2018 15:06:22
But steve yzerman is such a genius how did he ever waste a draft pick on a bust like drouin?

8.) 04 Mar 2018 22:25:54
I’d say in a draft re-rank it’s still mackinnon at 1, then drouin, Michael mccarron, zach fucale, Jacob de la rose, Sven andrighetto, with barkov, Jones and monahan close behind.

Probably close, right Habby?

9.) 04 Mar 2018 22:32:55
Why is mackinnon still at first?

10.) 04 Mar 2018 22:34:53
I was thinking gauthier would go first in a re draft right biased jim?

11.) 05 Mar 2018 03:49:00
Nope gauthier is an AHLer, maybe a fourth liner eventually but probably too slow to play for Babcock. because you know, the games get faster and harder come April. Let’s do a re rank of the 2005 draft tho. you would have price in the 5th round instead of 5th overall because he’s worse than your AHL goalies, right? Idiot.

12.) 05 Mar 2018 03:54:30
I look at who I would trade one for one when I do these things. You always skip around the fact that you think pacioretty is nearly untouchable, he’s like a god to you, and yet like a redraft, who would trade their best player one for one for him?!?! No one in the league. He’s not the best player on any team except Montreal and on a lot of teams he’s not even the 4th or 5th best player. Ppl are allowed to look and notice that and say it. It doesn’t make them biased. It makes them realists. I’m not going to lost every player on every team that’s better than him, but you look at rosters and find a team he’s the best player on. Can’t do it.

13.) 05 Mar 2018 05:07:29
Jim pacioretty isn't a god to me. Have I once argued with you over whether or not he's better then any teams top player? no that's just another nonsense remark by you to try and make me look wrong. I have argued with you on whether or not he's better the some other teams 4th or 5th best player. My last argument with you was how saad was more physical then pacioretty. Remember how you didn't anwser that one I guess you just realized how stupid it was to say that considering it's so easy to look up stats which prove different.

14.) 05 Mar 2018 05:23:10
But please go ahead and say how saad went to the front of the net 4 more times this year or how he spends 30 seconds more in the corner digging for pucks over the course of a season. jim unlike you when I'm comparing players I look at how they have played over there careers not just how they play for 3/ 4 of a season. i mean marner played a nice chunk of this year as a bottom 6.doesnt mean he's bad he was just struggling for awhile . In the case of patch vs saad both have sucked this year. I know saad is younger and signed for longer term but the argument wasn't who will be better in 4 years it was who is better now and based on previous seasons and even this year I think it's pretty obvious.

15.) 05 Mar 2018 13:24:30
Actually it was a trade proposal. So it would be who you would want on your team going forward. Not who is better today. When it’s a trade proposal I look at for the duration of their contracts obviously. And you argued that patches with a year left was better to have than saad who is like 4 years younger, signed longer and has championships to his name. You’re switching what it was now. It was a trade proposal, remember?

16.) 05 Mar 2018 13:27:55
You can go to the top of the page, press ‘NHL Trade Rumors’ and scroll down to see it was a trade proposal of saad for patches. And habs fans saying Chicago has to add to ‘dump’ saads salary haha.

17.) 05 Mar 2018 16:55:09
When it came down to what you and I were arguing about it was over who's better or that's how I took it. Either way where is all the data supporting your main argument of how saad is better cause he is more physical? I've asked 3 tines for this now.

I really don’t think Nylander has any leverage. Toronto has a couple wingers that can play with Matthews. If he holds out and let’s say Kapanen starts producing on that line. Nylander’s value will go down and he might just lose his spot. He doesn’t seem like the player that will try to fight his way from the fourth line back to the second.

Koekkoek has only proven he is not an NHL defender. I don’t know what you mean by solid. If Vancouver is taking on that much cap and retaining salary. I want Foote not Koekkoek.

I do not think Minnesota can win a cup with the team they have. They are too thin down the middle and their goaltending is inconsistent. I do not have them making the playoffs. Unless the pacific is that week and 5 teams from the central make it.
