Hearing something along the lines of:


Seth Jones
Colin Wilson


Ryan Johansen
Scott Hartnell

Seems like a lot from Nashville to me.


1.) 06 Jan 2016 22:19:15
swap Jones with Ellis, and then Nashville gives up a pick as well. I don't think they're parting with Josi, Weber or Jones.

2.) 06 Jan 2016 22:39:12
I like it nash needs a #1 center they are strong on defence so seems logical.

3.) 06 Jan 2016 23:35:37
Where did you hear it from? Lol.

4.) 06 Jan 2016 23:38:12
Jones for Johanson done deal.

5.) 07 Jan 2016 03:41:00
Take out the other two and Johansen for Jones should be a done deal.

What would it take for the bolts to pry James Wisnewski out of Columbus? He's signed for 2 seasons after this one and seems like more the type of player Stevie Y would go for. Reports are Columbus is shopping him ahead of the deadline. Would a deal centered around Connolly and a first work? Add pieces a bit but those as the main ones. Maybe Connolly Sustr 1st 2015 3rd 2016?


1.) I see so far it's pretty split. Will someone tell me either why it's unbelievable or give me an idea of what it would take?

2.) 24 Feb 2015 18:33:12
Well sorry Jared, I almost always agree with you, but I really think you'd screw our own team with that.
1. Wisniewski is more of an offensive minded, puck-moving defenseman, not really what we need IMO. I think we need a physical stay at home guy.
2. I think that's a vast overpayment, tbh. Connolly, Sustr, 1st and 3rd? Wow!

3.) I just don't see Sustr/Connolly having opportunity to have a large impact on the team and I'm likely oversold on Wisnewski. But the way the power play has been and the need for a right handed d I think he fits. May be giving up to much.

4.) 25 Feb 2015 11:59:41
PP definitely needs work.
And well, even if they don't have the best opportunities here in Tampa (yet), no need to sell them below value IMO.

Panarin might walk at the end of the year. But Columbus is in win now mode, it doesn't make sense to trade him for futures and he's the type of player theyd need back. Its better to have him play out the season and walk, or move him at the deadline if the season tanks, than to trade him now for depth players and picks. Its like Toronto with JVR last year and Tampa in Stamkos UFA year, you're essentially renting him from yourself at the cost of whatever you'd get for him and right now that's the right move. Its not like Tavares, Iles weren't winning anything last year.


1.) 17 Aug 2018 17:19:35
I agree 100% with this.

2.) 17 Aug 2018 17:20:47
Good point, well worded.



06 Aug 2018 16:02:02
I think it was VD that posted that Marner is better at 21 than Kuch was so I just want to clarify. In his age 21 season Kuch had 29 goals and 65 points. That was his fist full season and its 7 more goals and 3 less points than Marner last year with solid D. So Marner can definitely be on track to develop into Kucherov type in points but he wasnt run away better at the same age.


1.) 06 Aug 2018 17:21:13
Ohh yes obviously if Marner developed into as good as Kucherov thated be great it’s obviously possible he’s better and it’s possible that he gets in a car accident and never plays again anything can happen but if he got to that level it wouldn’t surprise me. He always reminded me of Kane.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 17:39:33
Kuch also played 1.30 per game less that year.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 17:43:36
And also had a huge playoff for tampa that year.

4.) 06 Aug 2018 19:54:42
Marner was the best player for the leafs in the playoffs.

5.) 06 Aug 2018 19:57:40
Marner has 9 pts in 7 games for the leafs thins past playoffs and Bruce Cassidy said he was the hardest player to coach against. Just because leafs didn’t advance as a whole, I wouldn’t say marners playoff wasn’t impressive too.

6.) 06 Aug 2018 20:39:48
The hardest player to coach against on the leafs. He was the only one that showed up for a lot of the series of course he was the hardest to coach against lol.

7.) 06 Aug 2018 20:56:35
Holy sh*t you guys are annoying. Let it go habby. What colour is the sky.?

8.) 06 Aug 2018 21:19:14
What in this post has you upset now habby? JBS made his point, vbb’s says he hopes Marner turns into a Kucherov and Jim states the obvious that Marner had an impressive playoff. Yet you still want to bash the leafs and mock Jim. I really hope Montreal can get their sh*t together so you cheer up a little and not be so negative.

9.) 06 Aug 2018 21:46:11
Depends on if it's cloudy or not lol.

10.) 07 Aug 2018 00:44:37
You don't hope that leafs17 lol.

11.) 07 Aug 2018 22:31:29
I do hope Montreal improves. I personally like to see Canadian teams do well. I’m sorry that you have become a Tampa fan.



24 Jan 2018 18:18:10
Brayden Point replaces Victor Hedman at all star game. Odd to see a forward replace a d.




30 Sep 2016 13:07:07
I just read that for rfa compensation AAV is calculated as total salary/ 5 years. So a 7 year 49 mill offer sheet would be 4 1st round picks. That would be inticing for teams not to match.


1.) 30 Sep 2016 15:37:10
so you're saying actual years of the contract don't matter when determining compensation and all that matters is actual money divided by 5?

So, 7 years and 49 mil would actual be 49 mil over 5 years for a charge of just under 10 mil per in terms of compensation.

That just doesn't seem to make any sense.

2.) 30 Sep 2016 19:43:44
just to add another example at the opposite end:

a team could sign a RFA for 1 year at the league max (14 mil or whatever it is) and only have to give up a 2nd round pick because 14 / 5 = 2.8 mil.

It just seems far too easy to circumvent. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you wrote, though.

3.) 30 Sep 2016 21:11:09
Anything over 5 years is divided by 5 to get the figure for compensation. It's to limit teams giving out longer deals to lower the AAV and therefore lower the compensation. Has no effect on 1-5 year deals they are still the AAV for compensation.

4.) 01 Oct 2016 02:24:52
ah ok, that makes sense then.



04 May 2016 13:07:49
Anyone else watch the Lightning-Iles game? I think Capuano needs to grow a pair. The Boyle hit was much better/ cleaner than the Hickey hit on Drouin and watching the replay (especially in slow motion) it's obvious Hickey tried to sell it for a penalty. Fans throwing a drink on the celebratory huddle and throwing things on the ice was fairly cringe worthy as well. What's going on in the league now that fans in Philly Detroit and New York have all though that doing stuff like that is ok?


1.) 04 May 2016 19:02:33
I missed the Boyle hit, but the hit on Drouin was clean. Head contact was after the fact and resulted from Drouin leaning forward into the hit just before contact. Hickey didn't leave his feet, he even bent his knees to get low and launch Drouin. Enormous hit, but a clean one.

2.) 04 May 2016 19:17:30
I'm not trying to say it's suspension worthy or even illegal. It was just worse than the Boyle hit Iles fans are complaining about. Just glad nobody got hurt but hate it when guys embellish and fans coaches and players act outlandish like that. I hope lightning fans never throw things on the ice.

3.) 04 May 2016 23:20:52
There will always be fans that throw things on the ice or at players. I remember watching Habs and Bruins games were Lucic would have beers and garbage thrown at him in the penalty box or whenever he was ejected. I personally thought it was funny but it doesn't make it right. Basically what I'm saying is this not an easily solved problem and I agree that some fans need to control themselves.

Ive agreed with the Jets fans a few times in terms of the deal just not making sense for Winnipeg but it’s getting bad guys. You’re not supposed to get better now and in the future in a trade if you do the other team screwed up. Typically going to have to trade now for future or future for now. They should be looking to trade a bit of future to solidify now.

As a Lightning fan I've become comfortable with the idea of Sergachev moving for an extended Karlsson Serg is a great long term piece but Karlsson is Karlsson and bolts are in win now mode. Sergachev Johnson 1st is a package i'd do, but likely want a half decent forward coming back and would likely need to find a 3rd team still for Ryan.

Why is unloading salary a requirement forna rebuild? isn't it the opposite, where they should try to take on salary and get assets to do it? They don't need to dump players for well below market value to move cap.

That package isn't close if you consider Spurgeon a top pairing RHD. don't need to free up cap now for deadline and that's terrible rationale to trade a key player anyway. Sure Sparks has looked good. he's also 25 and hasn't gotten much for nhl experience. Unkown goalies don't get a lot on the market right now especially not ones from the AHL Leafs are better off giving him the backup job and showcasing him a bit before trading. Greenway looks like he hasn't been developing all that well and a late first doesn't get you a top 4 D from a team pushing for playoffs.

I overreacted so i apologize for that i just try hard to look at things from an unbiased stand point and have a ton of respect for how the Leafs have turned things around so quick. I won't argue Faulk is a better player than Gardiner because i don't think that's true, its just the other factors i stated above that i believe give him more trade value. I don't think anyone would argue slavin and pesce are top pair players and they were only +1 last year, which i feel proves my point on +/ -. Faulk isn't a great D player just likely not as abysmal as given credit.

I don't think anyone has an issue with players like that being put on LTIR and not counting against the cap. I think most people to take exception to it believe that those contracts should not be tradable so that teams can't buy themselves out of a hole they were stupid enough to put themselves in. Kinda unfair to teams that can't afford to do it because you drove a FA out of their price range then got out of it in a way most teams couldn't. That's the only issue I see with it. Still very shocked that trade went down huge deal for Toronto

Hasn't toronto retained the maximum number of contracts they can at one time now? For that reason I don't see Kessel or Phaneuf moving because they'd be hard enough to move without keeping salary to begin with it would be almost impossible to fit them to a team under the cap at the deadline without those teams shipping back salary and few teams have a lot of useless salary on players they don't need for their playoff run

Hahaha 1 year going between bottom 6 and a healthy scratch due to depth and everyone is saying Drouin is a bust and should be moved for scraps. Kid will be fine. We he gets more than 15 min he's a ppg player this season.

The core is still young enough. Maybe they deal Chara to get younger but they'd have a hard time replacing him. I feel they might just do some minor retooling and hope to stay healthy next year

I understand. I still think the effect is a little overstated though. Some top line guys you can pass them the puck and they'll do all the work and you get an assist. Guys Connolly plays with. if he doesn't score nobody does. Also allows the d to focus on him to take it away. Not saying he some he's some all star it's just a stat I like to look at and I do believe there is value in it but you have to take out outliers and group better than just throwing everyone in there because it will be skewed. That being said once you limit it to players this season who've played 750+ min this season it's all top 4 defense and top line forwards. Rick Nash Nikita Kucherov and Tyler Johnson don't even qualify. Top 5 are Tarasenko Getzlaf Seguin Patches Crosby so I'd say while they may still be skewed a bit it's much better for comparing top line players. Kessel still comes in at 38. Again he's not a bad player but if he was the offensive elite people say he is he wouldn't be that far down playing with guys like Bozak and JVR. At the very least he would do it himself and find ways to score. I realize he is in a massive slump right now but that's another reason I don't consider him elite. Elite players don't go through these kinds of slumps they're more consistent than that
