Oscar Lindberg

6th 2018

Lindberg isn't a fit in Vegas. The Rangers will gladly take him back.

Let's say the Habs decide to trade Price. They would need to find a team which 1) has the cap space, 2) has the prospects that could help Montreal right away, 3) isn't in their division (or conference) and 4) sends you a goalie replacement back.

My proposal...

Carey Price

Semyon Varlamov
Samuel Girard
Lower of 2019 1sts

Price's value is strongly influenced by his contract so you can't expect to receive a superstar for him. But Varlamov is a great starter if he's healthy and if he's not, you still have Charlie Lindgren. Girard is a wet dream of Habs' fans - French Canadian, young and LHPMD. That first round pick would probably be Colorado's so I expect it to be in 15-25 range.

So Colorado gets a star goalie (We all know how it went last time they get one from Montreal). Habs save cap space while getting less talented but still pretty good goalie, young LHD and a first round pick.


1.) 20 May 2018 16:16:05
Terrible. Price still has way more value than that. Bergevin will not trade him unless the return is way better than that. Carey Price is the face of the franchise and it's going to take a lot of pieces to snag him.

2.) 20 May 2018 11:48:09
I honestly think last season of Carey Price eas just a bump in the road and that he will rebounce and be back into talks for the best goalie the world has to offer. But if mtl can get 3 younger peaces ( 1 29 year old starter) , young lhd who had a good rookie start in the nhl and a solid forst rd pick in a goos draft year (2019 supose to have some really good players like Jack Hugues) Imtaking this from mtl.

3.) 20 May 2018 19:37:40
Wow. First Proce deal I've seen that makes sense all around kinda.

Chicago needs to get one of their big contracts off the books and get younger.

Columbus on the other hand needs an upgrade at C, someone whose experience could help them take the next step.


Jonathan Toews

Alexander Wennberg
Vitaly Abramov
2018 1st
Brandon Dubinsky

About Toews. He has a NMC and would only waive it to go to a contender (which Columbus is IMO). His contract is an issue so the Hawks need to take back a bad contract (Dubinsky). He fits better as an elite 2C and that would be his role in Columbus.

Chicago would want young pieces as a return. Wennberg takes his spot as Top6 C right away. Abramov is a very promising winger with top6 potential as well. Adding the first round pick may seem as an overpayment but that's exactly what it would take for Chicago to part with their captain and franchise favourite.


1.) 13 May 2018 14:58:51
I like it good trade.

2.) 13 May 2018 16:01:30
doubt jackets do toews for Wennberg 1 for 1. age and contract.

3.) 13 May 2018 16:58:52
Towes is so much better then Wenneberg tho Towes could put up 70+ points easily if he didn’t commit as much defensively.

4.) 13 May 2018 19:56:34
Easy no from Chicago. Toews isn't being traded. And if he was he would bring back multiple offers better than this.

5.) 13 May 2018 19:51:16
Way too much from Columbus are you kidding me? With Toews contract (10.5 million a year for another 6 years) if Chicago wants to trade him they are going to realize that they won't try a ton in balie because of the contract and because he's approaching 30. That like mtl fans (yes I am one) thinking we can get a ton for Price. i'm sorry but with that contract even Price at his best is not worth a first, young top 6 center, young possible top 6 winger and a decent little overpaid third liner. Not thanks from Columbus Dubinksi contract is out in 2 years anyways and he's actually decent third line.

6.) 13 May 2018 19:53:53
Yes I agree he is better then Wenberg but with the age factor and the fact that this trade proposed has a first and a A minus prospect involved its not even close. Even with Dubinski the sordove cap dump.

Matt Martin
Connor Carrick
STL 4th 2019

Matt Hunwick
Riley Sheahan

Hunwick didn't do well in steel city but Babcock liked him in Toronto. His cap hit is an issue so the Leafs send Matt Martin (after July 1) the other way. Carrick takes the 6/7D spot. Sheahan was also Babcock's favourite and could serve as the bottom C the Leafs need. Since Sheahan's value is higher than Carrick's, the Leafs add middle round draft pick.


1.) 09 May 2018 04:42:49
I'd rather have Carrick over Hunwick. Leafs LD is solid, they need all the help they can get on the right side. Carrick is a serviceable bottom pairing defenseman who is younger and better than Hunwick. The leafs just signed Par Lindholm and also have Miro Aaltonen who will be battling it out for 4C, who, IMO are both younger more offensively talented than Sheahan. Martin can be moved another way, this is a no from Toronto.

Winnipeg will need to shed some salary this offseason and the next.

Two players with significant salaries I can see as expendables:

Tyler Myers - 1 more year, 5,5M
Mathieu Perreault - 3 more years, 4,125

Trade 1

Myers is the best of these three and had a very good season but the Jets can't afford him in the future so trading him while his value is high is a reasonable move.

Tyler Myers

1st 2018
Connor Carick (RFA)
Calvin Pickard (RFA)

Toronto gets their so needed RHD to play with Rielly. Winnipeg gets back a selection in the first round of this year's draft, young 6/7 D to challenge Poolman and Niku, and a talented goalie to fight with Comrie for the backup position.

Trade 2

Mathieu Perreault

Paul Byron

Montreal could use any offensive help. Perreault is a versitile skilled forward who can play both C or wing and - of course - he's from Quebec. Byron would help Winnipeg's bottom six and is cheap.

There is a third player who could be moved - Steve Mason - but I can't see any takers without retention of salary at this point. He's had a rough year but I believe he turns things around in his contract year. Since it's just a year left of his contract, he stays next season and then is gone to free agency with Comrie taking the backup role.


1.) 06 May 2018 09:50:27
Sorry for including Pickard in the Myers' deal. I initially thought of Mason (retained salary) going to Dallas but I gave up that idea beacuse the countervalue wouldn't be enough to make it work IMO. So exclude Pickard in the first trade. It could still be an interesting deal.

2.) 06 May 2018 09:54:40
I don't think that's enough for Myers myself and get ready for Montreal fans in here to say Byron worth a heck of a lot more than that. They think he's the fastest in the league, a superstar. You're going to get laughed at. Watch.

3.) 06 May 2018 11:49:04
I'm always prepared for that. :)

4.) 06 May 2018 14:13:32
Umm I rather say that Perreault is 100% better than Byron

5.) 06 May 2018 14:48:41
Myers deal isn’t bad I’d do it from the Leafs POV unless someone falls drastically to 23rd ovr.

6.) 06 May 2018 15:57:03
I am shocked. 😱

Perreault - Tavares - Drouin could be alright in Montreal next season.

7.) 06 May 2018 17:44:43

if you're okay w the Toronto deal, i am too. I would think toronto would need to add a prospect tho, and then WPG add like a 5th or sumtin.

8.) 06 May 2018 23:59:22
I’ll do that all day long from leafs perspective.

9.) 07 May 2018 10:54:28
Perrault is way better than Byron and WPG is trying to win now, how does getting a first for one of their top 4 D help?

10.) 07 May 2018 14:22:24
Winnipeg is not going to move players like Myers when they are in cup contention. The window of opportunity is usually quite small and Myers is a big part of that defense.

What do you guys think about Zack Aston-Reese? Who is his comparable and do you project him as a center or a wing in the NHL?




04 Feb 2017 12:29:53
What would these teams have to offer to LV for not taking their player in the expansion draft?


Ducks protect:
F: Getzlaf, Perry, Kesler, Silfverberg, Rakell, Cogliano, Vermette
D: Lindholm, Fowler, Vatanen (Bieksa waives his NMC or byuout)
G: Gibson


Wild protect:
F: Koivu, Parise, Coyle, Granlund, Niederreiter, Zucker, Staal (Pominville waives his NMC)
D: Suter, Spurgeon, Dumba
G: Dubnyk


Preds protect:
F: Johansen, Forsberg, Neal, Smith, Wilson, Arvidsson, Jarnkrok
D: Josi, Subban, Ellis
G: Rinne


1.) 04 Feb 2017 13:53:07
Nashville will protect 4 d-men and risk losing one of their forwards like Wilson, Smith or Jarnkrok.



11 Jan 2017 10:02:57
I don't really understand one thing. It's about players at their 40's and their cap hit. Zdeno Chara's cap hit goes down to just 4M next season (6,9M this season) . Should this rule apply to Hossa and Luongo as well?


1.) 11 Jan 2017 11:06:15
You mean contract?

2.) 11 Jan 2017 12:35:44
The cap hit is the average of the money paid out over the course of the contract. The actual salary might drop year to year but the cap hit doesn't

3.) 11 Jan 2017 13:04:43
Well, Chara's cap hit DOES drop. That's the issue. I read somewhere that according to the new CBA, player's cap hit equals the actual salary after he reaches 40.

4.) 11 Jan 2017 14:47:17
You're right. According to the CBA and the "Kovy" rule, the year a player turns 40 their cap hit drops to equal their salaries. Any contract signed before 2010 does not have this rule applied, so Hossa and Luongo do not have this happen as they were signed in 2009

Doesn't Dallas pick 13th, not 9th? Or am I missing something? I thought the Rangers are at 9.

Good base of a trade. Habs add however since RNH is a two-way C and has proved he can play wing if needed (I know, everyone scores with McDavid, but still. ) . The addition starts with Habs 2nd, maybe more.

Lack was on waivers and nobody wanted him. Why would Oilers give a 3rd?
