Probably way off.. and of course I want to see him on my Habs.. but what about a Buffalo and NYI blockbuster...
Tavares on a sign and trade plus a small add due to age difference.
For Jack Eichel.

I'm not a huge Eichel fan due to his personality..I think his ego may be to much to have someone who is coming in the league with even more hype than he did.. Dahlin..
Buffalo gets a strong leader in Tavares..reunited with Okposo.. NYI still gets to have a Star center..


1.) 22 May 2018 01:48:53
Islanders won’t be adding anything extra.

2.) 22 May 2018 03:08:38
No way buffalo touches this Eichel is 20 and is almost as good as Tavares. I’d trade Austin Mathews for Jack Eichel as a leafs fan. And I wouldn’t trade Mathews for Barzel and a player you could get for free in Free agency. In two seasons Eichel will out produce Tavares career highs I’m calling it right now. With that being said if I were buffalo I’d trade O’rielly and sign Tavares to be the 2 c.

3.) 23 May 2018 16:37:28
I wouldn’t trade Matthews for Eichel first off. Secondly, buffalos ownership has committed to Eichel with that massive contract and has apparently allowed him atleast some input on firing and hiring or coaches and gm lol they don’t do that and then trade him 10 months later.



17 Jan 2018 04:51:28
If I'm Garth Snow, does the emergence of Barzal change my way of thinking????
I have been obvious about my desire for the Habs to land Tavares.. ya it's still a crap shoot... however... if I am Snow.,, I build around Barzal.. I don't let Tavares get to July 1st, but trade him for top dollar.. yes !! I want my Habs to get him , however.,I have 2 trades.. who ya take.
FOR Tavares

2nd 18,× 2(both)
1st 2019

These deals are both on the contingent that he signs 8x11 at 88 once he is traded.


1.) 17 Jan 2018 06:08:49
I take Horvat, Joulevi, Van 2018 1st over
Galchenyuk, Lindgren, Juulsen, two 2018 2nds, 2019 1st.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 06:11:16
Horvat is the most proven of all this. I think Juolevi has more value than pretty well all the Montreal pieces. And that Van forst this year should be pretty good.

Make he Montreal 1st 2018 not 2019 and it changes it a bit. It still prefer Van package over Montreals.
Mainly becaUs Horvat is proven and the other two pieces are more potential than any of MTLs.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 07:29:26
Uhhhh no you definitely don’t build around barzal you keep Tavares who is a top 10 player in the world lol. I see your reasoning but no way, I really do think he will resign in New York and imo neither of these trades are enough to get him (im talking value wise not as he’s a UFA) .

4.) 17 Jan 2018 08:09:31
Good points both Edmonton Boyz.

McJesus. yes Tavares is top 10, however, resign him for 8 years, puts him at what? 35? Or Barzal, focus on him, Bellows. ext. In 8 years both are in middle of Prime. I get what your saying

Wouldn't surprise me however, at end if career. m Barzal, more points than John Tavares
I really like Tavares, however, I often wonder, is he a Superstar. or Really good player. there is a diffdefence.

5.) 17 Jan 2018 14:02:55
I think Mtl shouldn’t sign Tavares
We already have bad contracts

Not to mention that 80 million goalie.

6.) 17 Jan 2018 15:12:37
I would say having that 80 million dollar goalie is a good reason to get an 80 million dollar centreman to go with your 80million dollar defensman because they are so committed now, after those moves and trading sergachev, deciding to go another direction now will set any rebuild back many years before it even begins.

7.) 17 Jan 2018 16:19:33
Too much for a rental because Tavares would never re-sign in Van.

Montreal would be better off to just snag him at UFA time w/ o losing assets.

8.) 17 Jan 2018 17:54:40
I think one of the reasons Tavares might stay in NYI is the emergence of Barzel. Not saying it's the only reason, but it's one of many and it does help a little.

9.) 17 Jan 2018 18:20:36
Tavares is a superstar now, and you don’t trade those players. Barzal emerged as a very fun player to watch this year but tbh he had to play two extra years in junior! He wasn’t projected to be this good but unreal player for islanders now his skating is phenomenal but you still don’t trade Tavares. You keep him and you have him, Barzal, bellows, and all those other guys who will come up.

10.) 17 Jan 2018 22:49:03
I agree you try to keep Tavares if you can, and as much as he is saying the right things about wanting to stay, he isn’t holding any talks. As a management team you want to show patience with him and respect him by at the same time the deadline is coming and if he isn’t going to stay, you have to make a plan. You can’t have the best player your team has seen in decades walk for nothing.



30 Nov 2017 22:18:34
!Habs aquire Cracknell from NYR for Holland.

Huh?? Anyone else have any idea why this was made.. Bergevin must be bored?? Or is it jus so he can say he did something.?


1.) 01 Dec 2017 03:44:24
I don't like this. Holland is a pretty good depth forward. Cracknell is not.

2.) 01 Dec 2017 04:58:29
A little of both? Trying to make it look like he's trying.

3.) 01 Dec 2017 06:11:42
I’m surprised Holland wasn’t on the starting roster. I thought he was pretty good in Toronto.

4.) 01 Dec 2017 13:52:37
Holland was signed for 2 years next year being a one way contract. i guess they couldn't see a situation where he would be making the starting lineup this year or next year so they traded him for a guy who brings about the same value to laval and is a ufa at years end that they don't even have to try and find a place for next season. Not hard to figure out guys.

5.) 01 Dec 2017 14:10:45
Apparently holland ask for a trade when he saw Daniel carr + byron Froese being call to play for the big team and not him.



19 Jun 2017 20:01:17
send Tanev and Virtanen
send Kane and Beaulieu.


1.) 19 Jun 2017 21:38:06
I think buffalo passes on this one. If virtanen was more ready I think it could work.

2.) 21 Jun 2017 01:54:46
No way from Van. I wouldn't trade Tanev for Kane and Virtanen for Beaulieu.



17 Jun 2017 19:03:04
Beaulieu to Sabres for a 3rd... hmm not sure how I feel bout that..
Must be something else in the works


1.) 17 Jun 2017 19:06:30
Yeah he must have a trade for a dman coming back I'd assume.

2.) 17 Jun 2017 19:20:10
It's obviously the best deal the Habs could get for him.

3.) 17 Jun 2017 19:22:16
Great deal for the sabres.

4.) 17 Jun 2017 19:37:46
Definitely something in the works in order to help the loss in Defense.

As for this trade though, I see it as pretty reasonable. Beaulieu is good but often overrated in terms of value. So I think Montreal got the best they could for him because there are a lot of teams that have their own Beaulieu type that aren't worth what the Beaulieu asking price started as.

Either way, I hope Beaulieu turns it around for Buffalo and Montreal finds a way to make up for their loss in defensive depth.

5.) 17 Jun 2017 20:03:32

6.) 17 Jun 2017 21:44:47
Really think beaulieau will excel on the Sabres.

Obviously Kucherov is getting most of the hype for the Hart, and he deffenitley deserves to be considered or the front runner.., but I think Crosby should get a few votes as well. he's really playing such good hockey this season, at both ends.. If he doesn't get Hart, which he probably wont, I think a Selke could be in the cards for him


1.) 13 Mar 2019 04:33:11
I'm sure he will get votes and it wouldn't be the first time he got a major award he didn't deserve.

2.) 13 Mar 2019 14:21:47
I love reading any Habby comment on Crosby. You really don’t like that guy eh?

3.) 13 Mar 2019 15:36:58
No I really don't lol.

4.) 13 Mar 2019 17:26:09
Speaking of selke, how about Tavares. Anyone else think he deserves consideration?

5.) 14 Mar 2019 19:32:52
Why the heck did I get a disagree? I really don't like the guy and that's the truth lol.

6.) 15 Mar 2019 04:38:19
lol like clockwork.



28 Feb 2019 09:01:03
Rogers is obviously a Toronto based company? I've been seeing an advertisement for Oilers Vs Leafs..
With. Saying let's compare Number ones. Good grief.. . Like comparing Steak to Spam for eff sakes..
Richard, Howe,Orr,Gretzky Lemuiex,Crosby,McDavid..
That.. is the generational talent progression.. .


1.) 28 Feb 2019 11:15:05
Well they were both number one draft picks. that’s probably what they were getting at, no?

2.) 28 Feb 2019 13:38:01
Sosa just doesn’t like spam if it’s American made. Everyone knows McDavid is the best in the game. There’s only one player in the game I can’t stand but neither can the rest of the league, that very talented little weasel in Boston.

3.) 28 Feb 2019 20:49:13
1950s-Beliveau/ Howe
1970s-Guy Lafleur
1990s-Jagar/ Lindstrom

4.) 01 Mar 2019 08:00:31
Haha. Yeah, they are Toronto based. What gave it away?

Have you watched sportsnet? It’s the Fox News of the hockey world. leafs are the greatest thing ever, nothing is number 2, and everything else is number 3. We have very pathetic sports networks in this country.

5.) 01 Mar 2019 13:47:10
I get sick of it myself chirp, I can imagine people who don’t like the leafs. TSN is pretty bad too.

6.) 01 Mar 2019 18:00:19
Tsn is bad too but they are more of a bandwagon jumper then sports net. Tsn will put the focus on the Canadian team with the best record usually. Sports net would have 9 of the 10 articles about the leafs if they were last in the league.

7.) 04 Mar 2019 07:47:02
I kinda agree, Habby. To me it’s more like this:
When TSN had broadcast rights, they were a lot more favourable to every team in the league. Since sportsnet took over the broadcast rights, TSN has really played to their local market to disgusting levels. Both networks are difficult to watch. I generally don’t watch sports highlights anymore and mute intermissions regardless of which channel a game is on.



25 Feb 2019 23:41:17
Who was biggest winner.. Biggest Loser.?
For me , I'd say biggest winner was probably Nashville, the Granlund/Fiala was really lopsided IMO., and Simmonds was a good pickup.
They may not be now, but biggest loser could be Columbus in the long run.. if they lose Dzingel, Duchene,Panarin,Bobrovsky all for nothing in off season. Even with those guys, I don't see them competing with Tampa,Boston Toronto or Washington to come put of the East
I woulda cashed in on Panarin , and Bobrovsky .


1.) 26 Feb 2019 01:41:10
I agree Sosa that Columbus could have got a boat load for Panarin and Bobrovsky. They’re obviously hoping for a parade before losing them.

2.) 26 Feb 2019 05:15:09
I like what Nashville did too. i thought the leafs would at least add some depth pieces and they did nothing really but considering the cost on some of the players can't really fault em that much. what really happened for the most part was the west loaded up on players from the east. this leads me to believe eastern teams bid on a few of those players but the team decided to trade them out west to get them out of the conference.

3.) 26 Feb 2019 06:27:51
San Jose getting Nyquist for a very reasonable price could be a big add. Also if Hayes resigns / gets Laine going than there big winners.

4.) 26 Feb 2019 06:38:06
Oilers were kind of big losers IMO. They have a few UFA’s they should’ve dealt. Petrovic is useless to them so I would’ve been happy getting anything for him, keep in mind they gave up a 3rd+. Rieder could’ve been a decent depth guy for a playoff team that the Oil could’ve replaced with DSP. And Chiasson could’ve gotten a decent pick I think. The pick would’ve helped the Oil in the off season and I don’t see why they wouldn’t have a strong chance at signing him again. They didn’t help the team by doing nothing that’s for sure.

5.) 27 Feb 2019 12:23:49
Nashville and Columbus winners.

Isles losers. Lots of teams didn’t make trades but they didn’t boost anything while in the position they are and I think they should’ve. They struck out. Was really hoping they could’ve gotten Hoffman from FLA. I think he would have been a HUGE boon for them.



24 Feb 2019 02:38:08
Habs PP is going to cost them a playoff spot ..


1.) 24 Feb 2019 04:39:08
It's actually amazing it's as bad as it is. I can't for the life of me figure out how a team can get into the other teams zone almost at will at 5 on 5 but can't get in there at 5 on 4. Also why don't teams play them at even strength the same as they would on the pk. If they did montreal would never win another game. Just play the whole game like your shorthanded lol.

2.) 24 Feb 2019 17:33:33
So Habby, should they target a PP guy at the deadline? Or jus stay the course, continue to build.

3.) 24 Feb 2019 20:35:47
A top 4 left shot dman would help too but unless bergevin really goes off the board I can't see that happening.

4.) 24 Feb 2019 20:42:42
It's a tough call Sosa they are in the toughest position a team can be in going into the deadline. (playoff bubble) i think they have the right plan if they stick to it. That being only adding a player if he fits in long term. I would take a run at someone like simmonds if the cost wasn't too high and there was a chance of him signing an extension. He would be a good fit as he's always been good on the pp and adds enough toughness that deslauriers wouldn't have to play. But I'm fine not adding anything and if that means missing the playoffs so be it. Top 15 of this years draft look pretty solid.

5.) 24 Feb 2019 20:44:04
Mtl should go get a Solid LHD that can play on PP. Like Yandle type guy but not him.

6.) 24 Feb 2019 20:52:20
I'm with ya in that Habby. every fo me this year has been a huge bonus, they have more points than I projected for whole season lol. Only negative thing they have done all season is take em selves outta the Hughes/ Kakko sweepstakes lol.
2 guys on the D for me are not NHL calibre, Kulak and Reilly. , especially Reilly IMO., that I'd where my focus would be .

7.) 25 Feb 2019 01:20:44
Both are quite capable of playing 3rd pair minutes Sosa the problem with reilly is he has had to play 2nd pair. the habs currently have 1top pair dman 2 2nd pair dmen and 3 3rd pair. mete is capable of playing with weber so yeah you are right they need a reily replacement on that 2nd pair.



22 Feb 2019 05:44:47
Will Ovechkin eventually over take Gretzky on goals?


1.) 22 Feb 2019 12:00:59
Even if he doesn’t comparing their stats is apples to oranges; when Gretzky played there were far more goals scored per game on average (mainly because of the size of goaltenders and their equipment, and their techniques) . OV would have a field day back then.

2.) 22 Feb 2019 15:07:29
If you could take him at 20 years old and magically put him in the 80s he would have averaged 2 goals per game at least. switch that around for gretzky and he wouldn't make an nhl roster in today's nhl. But we all know players of today's generation focus way way way more on conditioning which makes them superior in almost every way. So it's really not fair to compare different eras. the players of today are better cause they all worked there butts off to be better then gretzky lemieux jagr and guys like that.

3.) 22 Feb 2019 17:19:24
Well with all that being said, in that Era, OVI probably woulda been a large overweight man. and Gretzky, Lemuiex all those guys I'm sure if this was there era, would have trained like the players do today,
Not one player in this era comes close to the talent those 2 guys had.
Anyway? Was . will he break all time record.

4.) 22 Feb 2019 18:08:54
In his condition he wouldn't have been overweight he would have just been one of the biggest and strongest players in the league on top of having the best shot and being one of the fastest skaters. He would have scored 100 plus goals every year in the condition he is in. Would he have trained and practiced like he did 20 years later to become as good as he is? Not a chance cause nobody was at that time. Gretzky was the most dominant player in the history of the nhl but he was perfect for the era he played. Only in the 80s would he have scored as much as he did. Any other era and he wouldn't have scored 200 points a year. He would still have been good in a few eras but not that dominant. With his skill set that he had he wouldn't make an nhl team right now. Now posdibly he might have trained harder and gotten better but who knows. he was a pretty scrawny guy who wouldn't have a semenko type protecting him now either.

5.) 22 Feb 2019 18:15:18
Like I'm a biased habs fan and besides lafleur cournoyer Robinson probably nobody from the 70s would make an nhl team right now. and even lafleur probably wouldn't be as good as drouin is. Can you imagine dryden playing goal in today's nhl? I think guys like Orr bobby hall could play now and maybe even mario could have a ryan getzlaf type career but 95% of the players from the 70s and 80s wouldn't make the nhl in the shape they played then. everyone has gotten better and faster for the most part and they just wouldn't keep up. Gretzky wouldn't have 10 seconds to make a pass and set up a teammate for a goal now.

6.) 22 Feb 2019 23:03:27
@Habby, Lafleur with his heavy smoking and drinking definitely dosnt make an NHL roster today. And he's in my top 3 favorite player of all time with Rocket and BoomBoom.

7.) 23 Feb 2019 02:06:36
That's true boom boom but I assume with today's focus on healthy living and a much improved substance abuse program he probably wouldn't be at that now.

8.) 23 Feb 2019 18:16:25
I don’t know, I think if you put a old wooden stick in Ovis hands puts some old ass skates on his feet and 200 pound men 2 handing him in the back of the legs and grabbing and hooking him, I don’t think he’d put up the same numbers as Gretzky. In reverse I should think with the modern training methods, dieting and the vast improvement in equipment what’s saying Gretzky wouldn’t have put up better numbers than Ovi? There’s so much different in hockey now to then sure goalies are better now but so are sticks and skates and training and everything is way more advanced and better now than it was in Gretzkys playing days. Gretzky would still be a far better play maker he would still have better vision than ovi, things that
Can’t be taught and things that isn’t affected by equipment.

9.) 23 Feb 2019 20:36:22
But gretzkys vision was magnified by the fact in the 80s you could easily create more space and time. Compared to today's game as soon as you get the puck someone is on you. skill wise he would have had to improve big time to make it in today's nhl. not saying he couldn't have but in order to succeed he would have had to be a completely different player then he was in the 80s.

10.) 23 Feb 2019 20:37:07
Ovechkin skill set would have worked in any era.

11.) 23 Feb 2019 22:21:57
So would Gretzkys. and Lemuiex. I think in this era, Lemuiex would have maybe been better. those 2 he more talent in there pinkys than Ovechkin had. I really believe in the era, with the lack of diet and exercise that the focus is now, Ovi woulda been a 280 lbs man.

12.) 24 Feb 2019 03:45:06
But even at 280 he still would have been much faster then gretzky Sosa lol. It goes to show you can't really compare players from different eras who knows how they would have even developed as people in different times. They may not have even had the urge to start playing hockey if they were born in a different generation.

13.) 24 Feb 2019 18:40:49
True Habby. lol. Maybe Gretzky in this era woulda been an equestrian. lol. who knows.

I wouldn't want to see that. That's a lot for Brodie. 2 first round picks. no thanks. he's decent, but I think he jus looks a lot better with Giordano than he probably really is.

I'd say no from Flames . , that's a lot of grit leaving that team. I like both Kadri and Nylander, but Tkachuk is a skilled power forward, who is turning into a bigger version of Marchand type ., and Bennett, he may not have the top end offense he was drafted for, but he is a gritty forward, who will pot 20 goals I believe.
