Base of the trade:

Evgeni Svechnikov

Justin Faulk

Carolina adds. Not sure how much.

Svechnikov is obviously a brother of Andrei who the Canes have just drafted. He took a step back last season but could benefit from a change of scenery and maybe playing with his bro.

Faulk is the Top4 RHD the Wings desperately need. He also didn't have a good season but can turn it around.

Since Faulk is a hot commodity as a RHD, the plus could be too much from Detroit's perspective to pull the trigger. They have two second round picks in 2019 though.

Good deal I like it.

2.) 29 Jun 2018 21:56:35
You're crazy.
Faulk could get much more than a prospect who has so far been a failure.

Faulk is a top 2 NHL right handed defenceman.

3.) 29 Jun 2018 22:23:41
Wtf lol Faulk can get more.

4.) 29 Jun 2018 22:32:36
What's with all the crazy over exaggerations lately.
Faulk a top 2 RHD in the NHL?
Karlsson, Doughty, Letang, Peitrangelo, Subban, Byfuglin, Carlson, Burns. Even Hamilton.

Faulk is not a top 2 RHD.

5.) 29 Jun 2018 23:04:57
Faulk is a good PP player probably 2nd line on a lot of teams. He’s a good 6th dman and he’ll probably be spending time in the press box for the Canes this year as he moved down the depth chart ( 3rd pairing but Ronald McKewoen is posed to take over. ) He’s terrible defensively, offensively he hasn’t been great as of recently and he’s to small to play physical. Because of his PP ability’s I’d say he’s worth a 2nd and Project Prospect like Micheal Del Colle. Probably the most overrated player in the NHL.

6.) 30 Jun 2018 02:59:57

You're mentioning elite defencemen. Not top 2 defencemen. You mentioned big named players.

Faulk excels in all areas of the game. The only reason he is not a big name player is because he doesn't score 50+ points. He's an excellent defenceman, just not a 50+ point producer.

Most teams have their ''star'' defenceman that play top 2. And most have that defenceman that IS a top 2 and plays well but isn't a #1 defender on a team (even though Faulk can easily be #1 on 50% of teams)

You have forgotten what ''TOP 2'' means. You're thinking it means elite. It doesn't.

If none of you guys have realized, VB doesn't know hockey values.
Faulk is a top 2 defender on 70% of teams. Saying William Nylander will score 20 points next year is more believable than saying Faulk will be a 6th d-man on a team. Never will happen. Roland McKeown is an AHL defender.

7.) 30 Jun 2018 04:15:55
Vb doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about ever lol.

8.) 30 Jun 2018 04:56:14
Well Faulk was like what last year? -30 far below team average he’s terrible defensively you can’t argue that. All he can do is quarter back a pp even then he still dosent produce much offensively. And above him on the Carolina depth chart on the right side is Pesce on the top pair and Hamilton on the 2nd pair. So he’s the 5th I guess anyways he’s on the 3rd pair and 2nd PP ( Hamilton on 1st )

McJesus you think Nuge is a top 3 selke Canidate And Lucic is worth a 1st and a top prospect you may be the most biased person on this site.

2707 Faulk wouldn’t be the top dman on ANY team not even Vancouver I’ll take a defensively safe Tanev over a 1 dimensional Faulk.

9.) 30 Jun 2018 18:40:52
Lol not once have I ever said those things about nuge or Lucic so pretty sad when you have to lie and make things up you’re such a moron lol please stop.

10.) 30 Jun 2018 19:16:00
Exaggerating about Lucic but the fact is you overrate him draistcly. you did say Nuge was a top 3 Selke canidate but the reality he’s a good 2c I’ll even take Kadri over him.

11.) 30 Jun 2018 20:08:52
what the hell hahaha you’re so lost I have never said that 😂 clearly you’re continuing to make this up or clearly mistaken me for another person bud.

12.) 30 Jun 2018 21:08:19
Either you or yup said something about Nuge being a top 3 Selke Canidate but regardless you are biased towards the oilers as am I towards Marner but I really find the valueation of Faulk scewed he hasn’t done anything special sense 3 or 4 years ago a change of scenery would be beneficial but he’s nothing more then a 2nd pairing Dman and 3rd pairing on the canes.

13.) 01 Jul 2018 05:18:39
You're mixing us both up with someone man.



15 Jun 2018 10:50:16
2 trades for the Isles

1) Philipp Grubauer and Brooks Orpik for 2018 CGY 2nd (43rd OA)

NYI get a 1B goalie to challenge his conutryman Greiss for the starter's job. This competition should be useful. Orpik is a cap dumb. He lessens the value of Grubauer. Washington gets the cap space to re-sign Carlson and others, Isles solve their goalie issues relatively cheap.

2) Brooks Orpik (50% retained by NYI) for Matt Martin

The Leafs get rid of two years of Martin's contract in exchange for one year of Polak's replacement as the tough guy. This helps the Leafs cap-wise in the near future. The Isles re-unite the fourth line of Martin-Cizikas-Clutterbuck.


1.) 15 Jun 2018 21:12:18
I’m sure there’s other teams that will offer more than Calgary will for Grubauer. I don’t think they need him bad enough to make the trade. Also they wouldn’t want to retain on Orpik and take Martins contract. Doesn’t make any sense for them.



14 Jun 2018 10:56:50
Erik Karlsson (extension in place)

P.K. Subban

I usually don't agree with proposed trades in articles but this one makes some sense to me.

It's becoming more than likely that Karlsson is done in Ottawa. He's now at his best hockey-wise and wants to win. Nashville is a SC candidate, they have Mattias Ekholm to complement him, there are other great Swedes on the team, they can afford his salary... So why not?

Subban is still a Top10 D in the league so it's not a massive downgrade. He's signed for four more years so if it doesn't work out they can trade him for futures.

Nashville adds a litte since Karlsson is a better player in this deal. Hartman? Jarnkrok? 2019 2nd? I don't know.

Neither team NEEDS to do this but if I'm Nashville and there's a chance to upgrade my D with a superstar like Karlsson and do it relatively cheep, go for it.


1.) 14 Jun 2018 17:00:47
Ottawa is going to have a tough time negotiating trades. Their own house is such a disaster and other teams know it. I would bet almost every player on that roster would be happy to distance themselves from that organization and welcome a trade. When that’s the case, Nashville isn’t negotiating with Ottawa anymore, just against other teams. I know Sens fans on here the last cpl days have tried to say this doesn’t effect the players trade value, but it absolutely does. Not Karlssons nearly as much as Hoffman’s obviously, but you’re extremely naive if you don’t think this hurts the return Ottawa can get for their players.



10 Jun 2018 08:47:15
Gustav Nyquist

Caleb Jones
Rights to Anton Slepyshev

Nyquist is a speedy winger and that's what the Oilers need. He's got one year left on his contract so it's a tryout year for him in Edmonton. They could give him a shot at McDavid's wing. If it doesn't work out, he's still a capable middle six forward.

The Wings have some young skilled forward prospects who need ice-time so this move means a free roster spot for them. On the other hand, they lack D prospects so they get one in Jones. Slepyshev is gone to KHL but Detroit was always a nice destination for Russian players. That fact could convince him to come back to America.


1.) 10 Jun 2018 17:44:32
Given jones is our best LHD prospect i'd still make this trade as I’m a fan of nyquist but I think Detroit want somebody more ready to nhl ready.

2.) 11 Jun 2018 11:33:32
Oilers do this easily Detroit will say no.



31 May 2018 11:40:34
Troy Brouwer
Michael Stone

Bobby Ryan
Filip Chlapík


1.) 31 May 2018 13:17:23
I think Ott takes this. Did you mix up Mark stone with Mcheal stone?

2.) 31 May 2018 17:23:37
MTRL=pacheortty + 3 rnd draft pick
ARZa= 1st Overall
Then mtrl get Dahlinn and trade Webber + Danault to star for Segin + pick
Defence and centre solves.

3.) 31 May 2018 17:52:04
Haha buffalo has first?

And why not get mcdavid for a 5th with that logic?

4.) 31 May 2018 18:37:09
Why would Calgary take that god-awful Bobby Ryan contract? ‘If’ they even entertained the idea, they’d want Mark Stone.

5.) 31 May 2018 22:03:29
I think you mean why would ottawa go near that God aweful troy Brower contract. at least Ryan produces points. what does Brower do other than eat cap? Lmao.

6.) 01 Jun 2018 01:06:11
Also, Calgary gets a top prospect in Chlapik, who is looking very promising both defensively and offensively. I think this is fair from both parties.

7.) 01 Jun 2018 03:40:02
Would way rather have Brouwer for two years at $4.5 mln than Bobby Ryan for four more years at $7.25 mln.

Last year Brouwer had 22 points. At $4.5 mln that's just over $204K per point.

Bobby Ryan had 33 points. At $7.25 mln that's roughly $220K per point.

And he's signed for four more years.

You lose again Rambo. But hey don't let stats and facts get in the way of your narrative.

8.) 01 Jun 2018 13:24:08
tbh . i think i'd rather keep Ryan over Brouwer. Yes Bobby's contract is the worst of the two. But Ryan is more of an offensive player compared Brouwer's more defensive grindy style. which Sens need more due to the fact that we have little to no Prospects or depth for RW . Bobby can still play in the top 6, where i see Brouwer more of a third line player. Plus i have really liked Chlapik's development so far.

9.) 01 Jun 2018 17:05:53
How do I lose unsportsmanlike? Lol you're neglecting games played and plus minus lol points per game is what you want not total points in a season. I'd rather have 33 points in 62 games than 22 points in 82 games any day and so would any gm or coach living or dead it's common sence that you lose again. 10 more points in 20 less game yes please sign me up.

10.) 02 Jun 2018 11:31:17
No, I did mean Michael. Two overpayed players from Calgary for one largely overpayed from Ottawa (plus a nice add in Chlapik) . Stone is also expendable with the emergence of Andersson. In addition, his presence could help with negotiating a long-term contract extension of Mark.

11.) 05 Jun 2018 14:44:31
Actual - 4.5
Worth - 1.25

Actual - 3.5
Worth - 2

Actual - 7.25
Worth - 5

In what world does ottawa even consider this?

And kovinator, Brower is the biggest over payment in this group, NOT Ryan.

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

Trade 1 - Let's trade our future and the franchise goalie for a twenty extra days to convince JT to sign

Trade 2 - Future young star for aging overpayed winger

Trade 3 - C'mon it's 2018, not 2010. Seabrook's contract in one of the worst in the league, adding Duclair only lessens the nagative value and you want an NHL Top10 scoring forward in return? (and slot him on his off wing)

Trade 4 - This one only is close to fair.

Sharp has retired, Martinsen is a UFA and propably won't be back. Also who is Hawks starting goalie in this scenario?

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

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.
