NOTE: this happens over the offseason/ next season

to Arizona

to Tampa

Arizona gets another battle tested veteran, which is clearly something they are trying to amass (see Hjalmarsson and Stepan) and Tampa gets a cheaper, similarly productive player and a massive amount of cap relief, which they will desperately need for players like Koekkoek, Sustr, Namestnikov, even Kucherov in 2 years.

1.) 10 Jan 2018 02:30:53
AZ taking a bad contract. They need to get more.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 02:39:09
I believe Tampa would need to add. They can't give that contract away.

3.) 10 Jan 2018 04:53:33
martinook is having a better season, statistically, while playing on arizona. maybe they give rieder instead?

4.) 10 Jan 2018 07:33:35
Tampa bay at ther very least well have to give a 1 rd pick to get ride of challahan.

5.) 10 Jan 2018 10:13:26
Tampa adds. Also they aren't keeping Sustr especially at a raise.

6.) 10 Jan 2018 10:14:01
Tampa adds. Callahan has negative value.

7.) 10 Jan 2018 10:25:37
TB would need to send a prospect or pick as sweetener I guess.

8.) 10 Jan 2018 12:08:50
High i'm going to ask again. because you never answer and maintain your position. Why would Tampa trade a first + to dump Callahan when they are currently sitting on 4 mill cap space, have other contracts expiring in time to give current players raises and the depth to replace departures from within? If they end up needing a little extra they can buy him out after next season.

9.) 10 Jan 2018 16:39:44
Cause bayout don't work all the time like if you have front loaded contract like challahan if they buy him out they well have to still pay 4 mill a year for the next 3 year its like how lawson cruise got traded for nathan horton.

10.) 10 Jan 2018 19:08:17
High the buyout calculator on cap friendly is a thing of beauty. Cap hit remains at like 1.5 mill for the buyout. And when will you get it they don't need the space bad enough to do these trades and a 1st and top prospect is a lot more than Crouse. Crouse wasnt for Horton either it was for Bolland.

11.) 10 Jan 2018 19:17:22
Lawson crouse was traded WITH Dave Bolland, not FOR Nathan Horton lol.

12.) 11 Jan 2018 05:09:21
However @jbs I wouldn’t say a 1st or a top prospect is worth a lot more than Lawson Crouse. Because when that trade was made he was a very recent top 5 pick, which makes him a first round top prospect lol now the fact that he hasn’t become a star yet is irrelevant to the trade, it’s what he was at the time. The pick or top prospect HiGH247 says you need to add may never turn out either, but you still value them that way when you’re trading it.

to Arizona
Garrett Pilon

to Washington

Washington gets a better defenseman for yet another shot at a cup and does not take on any new cap. Although Goligoski's contract is longer than that of Orpik's by a decent margin, the only damage that does is the inevitable John Carlson situation, which would have been a problem anyway (personally I think they move Lars Eller at some point to make room for Carlson's 2-3M pay raise) . Arizona gets a solid prospect in return.



09 Jan 2018 06:56:17
to Carolina

to Anaheim

carolina has ungodly amounts of cap space. carolina improves their defense and anaheim gets some wiggle room for more trades to improve and make the playoffs. mutually beneficial for two bubble teams.



09 Jan 2018 06:52:58
to Carolina
E Kane

to Buffalo
H Fleury



07 Jan 2018 22:29:28
to Carolina

to Montreal
H Fleury

1.) 07 Jan 2018 23:19:21
Pacioretty is worth more than that.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 23:29:24
Gonna take bean + Gauthier.

3.) 08 Jan 2018 02:49:28
@keyhabs that seems a bit extreme, no? unless gauthier is worth less than I remember.

4.) 08 Jan 2018 05:12:29
Kk maybe but its going to take more than one young player.

5.) 09 Jan 2018 18:42:14
Change the third to a first and you have something there. Berg may want more but this is probably the value. Blue chip prospect and high first rounder or two blue chip prospects for Patches based on trade values over the last few years.

The Golden Knights have a lot of UFAs. Some they will keep but others will probably be worth more to them traded. They also have 8M in cap space, which is tricky, for various reasons. Also important is the fact I expect them to try and make a playoff run, because of course.
Main issue is Marchessault. He's a great player on the team but is making 750k which is ludicrous for a player who is likely to score 30 goals again. I'd put his value at 5-6M, so that lowers Vegas' cap room in the future, but for this year they will be ok. William Karlsson also is owed a decent amount of money, so they will likely be looking to let some free agents go (they can free up 13.M in Clayton Stoner, David Clarkson and Mikhail Grabovski, and if they keep Luca Sbisa it probably won't be for 3.6M either) . Basically, the cap is friendly to them, so they can afford to use the 8M they have with little concern.
My main thought is that their defense, while capable, is fairly undermanned. The Penguins have shown that it's not an absolute necessity, but they still have had Kris Letang, which continues the trend that has persisted for a good while now of having at least one star defenseman. The Golden knights will have Shea Theodore in that role one day, but for now they need someone who can hold down the fort on the back end who is not the goaltender (they have had very above average goaltending, which may have helped cover up ay weakness in the defensive core) . There are teams with good star defensemen they could trade, which is abnormal but is true (the Coyotes are not going to trade OEL to the Knights though, I'm sorry) . There is one trading partner in particular that I think is especially exciting.

to Carolina
Alex Tuch
Oscar Dansk
mid-round pick

to Vegas
Justin Faulk

There is a significant surplus of goaltenders in Vegas, both as prospects and NHL-regulars, so Dansk becomes expendable (and valuable after his showing during the injury wave) . Tuch is also young and has shown a scoring knack, but is not integral to the success of Vegas. I also think this move would factor into other trades by vegas in which they exchange the spare defensemen for forwards, further mitigating this loss.
Faulk is an all-star defenseman, but Carolina has an abundance of young defensemen who could benefit greatly from his ice time. Carolina is still a bubble team, and may benefit from growing the youth. Dansk will get decent playing time, unless Bill Peters decides he hates him like he did with Eddie Lack and many other goalies.

1.) 02 Jan 2018 06:21:13
Gotta be at least a 1st added IMO. Doesn’t matter though because they just gave Faulk the C so I’m assuming he won’t be traded.

to Dallas

to Tampa Bay

Dallas is the perfect place for Vasilevsky, but there's nothing that Tampa really needs in return. Vaslievsky's value is quite high, but i just don't know what Tampa would want for him

1.) 12 May 2016 01:38:16
Ummmmmmmmm i think this is the dumbest post ever, the only time you see only one team getting a player or pick is when they hire a coach/ GM and vasevsky is a solid prospect they would trade bishop Before him.

2.) 12 May 2016 02:31:46
Seguin or benn then Tampa adds but not going to happen.

3.) 12 May 2016 02:37:27
Tyler seguin and Jamie Benn 50% retained each.

4.) 12 May 2016 02:41:09
Lol this is a good one.

5.) 12 May 2016 03:45:44
I totally miss read that after my bad anyway probably a 1st round pick plus some thing else.

6.) 12 May 2016 07:16:08
Klingberg for Vasilevsky+… I don't know but first Dallas would have to trade a high paid average at best goalie.

seems like a waste to use all their deadline space on green; could probably get a little more bang for their buck.

tampa doesn't have anywhere near enough cap room.

I definitely think they should dump smith but the Islanders might hold on to Tavares after all. Regardless I think this is not one of the situations where a team is looking for quantity, so the Senators would have to offer up something better than what they do in this hypothetical.

this is fair value but buffalo wouldn't want to do this. in an alternate universe where the sabres are good like they were supposed to be this is probably a good trade.
