To Calgary: Oliver Bjorkstrand
To Columbus: Michael Frolik + Brett Pollock + 5th 2018

Why from Calgary: Although Frolik has great chemistry on the second line, he is the most expendable of the 3. Calgary needs more offence as the top line is shouldering way too much. Bjorkstrand would fit nicely on the second line and add some very nice secondary scoring.

Why from Columbus: Bjorkstrand could be asking for a major raise if he continues the season he's been having. This could cause problems with Atkinson, Jenner and Calvert all on expiring contracts this year. They have plenty of young talent and can afford to lose Bjorkstrand for a veteran that has playoff experience (Frolik).

if frolik has great chemistry on the second line why would you want to break it up? is bjorkstrand that much of an upgrade at this point in time? i'd do it as calgary as you're getting a younger player. but columbus would do this soley for cap reasons?

Josh Ho-Sang for Oliver Kylington and 5th 2017

Why for Calgary: Highly offensive RW that Calgary needs. Calgary is lacking offence and could use the dynamic ability in the offensive zone that Ho-Sang brings.

Why for New York: Outside of Pulock the Islanders lack promising young d. They have plenty of young forwards (Beauvillier, Barzal, Bellows, etc...). Kylington is arguably ready to take the next step into the NHL but will never get a chance with Calgary and their defensive depth.

Who adds?

1.) 10 Nov 2017 11:24:57
I feel like calgary would have to give up Rasmus Andersson and a higher pick. But it's a really good idea, cause calgarys right winger depth is trash and they have some plenty of good defensive prospects.

IF Jankowski proves himself to be a capable NHL player:

S. Bennett for W. Allison + Condtional 2nd 2018

If Flyers make the 2017-18 playoffs the picks is a 2nd. If not then it is a 3rd

*Wade Allison is RW prospect drafted by the Flyers in 2016



03 Oct 2017 01:47:28
T. Brouwer (25% Retained) for Yakov Trenin
T. Brouwer (25% Retained) + O. Kylington for 2nd 2018 + 4th 2018 + Mason Appleton

Either of them close?

1.) 04 Oct 2017 09:26:48
Bad trade to use Kylington. Maybe just send Brouwer and a pick for a lower pick. Could use Kylington in a better package like for Duchene cause Calgary has been pursuing him hard.

Maybe a trade that sends Andersson + Kylington + Brouwer + small add to Colorado for Duchene. Brouwer is getting trade but nobody has giving sources but he is for sure gone. Multiple sources.

Calgary Pittsburgh
Stajan (20% Retained) for 3rd 2018 + Bjorkqvist

Calgary NYR
B. Kulak + M. Klimchuk + 4th 2018 for R. Nash

1.) 14 Sep 2017 16:38:41
Too much cap going to Calgary and Pittsburgh is good up the middle

2.) 14 Sep 2017 17:53:16
No Pittsburgh isn't good up the middle (bottom six) . Crosby, Malkin, Rowney, McKegg is their current depth chart. They should definetly make a move before the season starts to get a 3C.

3.) 14 Sep 2017 18:45:18
I just read that Holland and Rutherford have spoken this week and that Pens are intersted in Wings Sheahan. Pouliot back to the wings is talked about. Maybe some pieces added to either side. But the Wings are $3M over the cap and need to shed still.

4.) 15 Sep 2017 18:10:06
Pittsburgh is great top 2 centres and near the bottom of the league bottom 6. Which is why they say it's a priority to get a 3rd center. Have to see how cap would work but I still feel there's a fit there for Tyler bozak. 1 year left at 4.2 mill, great on the draw, decent offence, can play a checking role and penalty kill too, and has a history of playing well with kessel if they wanted to keep the big three on 3 different lines again for added scoring depth.

Sam Bennett, a 5th 2018, and Eetu Tuulola to the Penguins for Daniel Sprong and 6th 2018
Rasmus Andersson, Conditional 3rd 2019 and Tyler Wotherspoon for Daniel Sprong and a 4th 2018
Condition: Sprong must play 50 total NHL games between the 2017-18 and 2018-19 season otherwise a 4th is transferred

1.) 08 Nov 2017 23:19:21
I wouldn't give up bennett he's had flashed of brilliance under hartley. I say he's going to breakout soon



20 Sep 2017 18:27:21
Which group is best:
McDavid, Draisaitl, Pulijarvi, Klefbom, Nurse.

Matthews, Marner, Nylander, Reilly, Gardiner.

Laine, Scheifle, Ehlers, Morrisey, Trouba

Gaudreau, Monahan, Tkachuk, Hamilton, Brodie

1.) 20 Sep 2017 19:29:58
The group with McDavid.
But any answer wil just be biased, which is understandable when you cheer for the team.

2.) 20 Sep 2017 19:31:30
I wouldn't have Puljujarvi on that list.

For some reason I really like Lilgren more than Gardiner fr this list.

Big Buff way over Morrisey for this list.

3.) 20 Sep 2017 23:59:36
*Larsson not nurse.

4.) 21 Sep 2017 11:48:42
In order;

Toronto/ Winnipeg

I think Toronto and Winnipeg are too close to call atm.

I like Matthews over Schief, Laine over Marner, Nylander over Ehlers, Trouba over Rielly and Gardiner over Morrisey. Close tho.

5.) 22 Sep 2017 00:56:28


Laine/Matthews, Schiefele>Marner, Nylander>Ehlers, Trouba>Gardiner, Rielly>Morrissey

6.) 23 Sep 2017 12:22:26
I'll take Rielly over Trouba but I agree with the rest.

Hagelin for Stajan

Depth move for both teams. Makes a lot of sense cap wise and position wise (to me atleast)

1.) 10 Sep 2017 16:20:38
But what about skill wise? That's basically the most important. They have to be at least somewhat equal in skill. And Hagelin is more valuable than stakes because he has more skill.

2.) 10 Sep 2017 23:32:27
Yup, last year they posted a very similar amount of points. Stajan carries a 3.5 mil cap hit for 1 year and Hagelin carries a 4 mil for 2 year. That cap space is super valuable to a team like Pittsburgh. Pens need another bottom 6 Center and Calgary is log jammed at Center. The skill difference isn't that big and the cap makes up for that. And like I said it works position wise.

3.) 11 Sep 2017 08:51:25
You have a point Xcing but a pick would have to be thrown to Pittsburgh as well. I didn't check but I believe Hagelin is much younger also. Like Yup said, the skill set is a little lopsided.



07 Jul 2017 14:45:13
K. Connor + Conditional 2nd 2018 for I. Samsanov + B. Orpik (1 mil retained)
Condition = If Samsanov starts 40+ games then the pick becomes a 1st 2018

Washington saves cap (very valuable for them), Samsanov has no real future with the Caps and they get a promising young player that can provide secondary scoring (helps fill the gap from players that they lost).

Winnipeg gets a very good young goalie. I know they have Conroe and Hellebuyck but neither looks to be a true starter and Samsanov can give them a starter for the future and possibly now. Winnipeg can then move one of Conroe/Hellebuyck

1.) 08 Jul 2017 15:25:31
Not really sure why Peg needs another top goalie prospect.

2.) 08 Jul 2017 19:22:03
Uhhh hell no from Jets? Comrie, Helle, Mason and some other decent goalie prospect. They do NOT need Samsonov and his few year wait.



04 Jul 2017 17:50:57
R. Andersson for K. Kapanen
Neither player will have the opportunity to get a big role with their respective organization and will have many more opportunities with the new organization. Toronto gets a RHD that can step into the lineup next year and Calgary gets a RW prospect.

C. Hagelin for M. Stajan
Hagelin is the better player but carries a bigger cap hit for longer. Stajan can help fill the hole that Bonino left and Pens save money.

Then Flames make this line:
Hagelin - Bennett - Kapanen
Bennett really shines when he has the puck. Hagelin is a playmaker and Kapenen has a great shot. It would be a fast line that can drive offence. I think that this could really help spark Bennett.

1.) 04 Jul 2017 22:36:45
Don't know to much about the prospect going to Toronto could you give an report on him? What's his potential and what's is he at worst Casinario because Kappy has the ability to step in as a good top 6 forward right now. And I really like the Haglain/ Stajan swap.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 12:42:48
Also, I like these. Pretty fair, maybe Calgary might have to add a smidge on the Toronto deal.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 17:28:18
Also I'd rather Trade Connor Brown then Kappy. Would that be acceptable?

4.) 05 Jul 2017 20:38:55
@Nylander Rasmus Andersson was drafted in the second round of 2015. He is 6'0" and right handed. He notched 22 points in 54 games with the Stockton heat in the AHL last year as a rookie. He plays a two-way game and has offensive upside. Toronto may want to keep him in the minors for one more year but that's okay because defense take longer to develop. Best case scenario top 4 d man, worst is bottom pairing. I think a swap of Kapanen and Andersson would benefit both teams and as Calgary I would be okay with adding a little like another prospect or pick.

5.) 05 Jul 2017 20:40:47
I think Flames would prefer Kapanen based on age and potential.

6.) 06 Jul 2017 12:00:02
Andersson is an offensive defenseman (stats: goo.gl/h3XdH)

who could use some conditioning, but in the end could probably be a solid power play dman and a decent number 4. And he's RH.

Lol I think he's bipolar. Half of him is a Habs fan and half of him is a Flames fan and then he likes to argue with himself.

I feel like Montreal isn't getting enough quality back for two of their best forwards. I'd say that'd be a no from them.

1st one not enough but I wouldn't mind getting one of those players. The second one is a bit much.

Any package for Tavares would start with Monahan.
