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.



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.

!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.

So the Craps finally beatt the Pens.. however, lots are going to say Ovechkin beat Crosby
For me , it's not even close...the comparison of the 2.. If there was a Mount Rushmore of Hockey, Crosby is sitting there with with Gretzky, Orr, Lemuiex,Richard and Howe.. soon to be joined by McDavid.
Yes.. I'm a hater.. .. of Ovechkin.. in my 35+ years of watching hockey., he is .maybe the most over rated ' so called superstar since Brett Hull.
The guy is so one dimensional, ya ok.m good goal scorer, but does he evet dominate.. I don't think so.. unless ... Backstrom hooks him ups

Al I'm saying, is realize.. it was the Caps who beat Crosby... not Ovechkin.. Even if the Overated 8 was to win a Cup... it's st Ill it even close.......Crosby is 10 times the player that Overated guy is

Pens number 2 center is bettet than Ovi


1.) 08 May 2018 16:18:32
Wouldn’t say he’s 10X better that’s a little extreme.

2.) 08 May 2018 21:18:12
Ovie can do the all star skating competition in 14 seconds if Crosby was 10x faster he’d be able to skate around the rink in 1.4 seconds

If his shoot was 10x harder he’d be able to shot 1060 MPH

If he’s 10x better he should put up 10x the points so Crosby should’ve put up 480 G 380A 870P this season

I think you guys underate the multiplication factor of 10 Crosby is better but not 10x better or even 2x better.

3.) 08 May 2018 22:52:13
I wouldn’t say Ovechkin is really that overrated, he is one of if not the greatest goal scorer of all time. While he’s not a complete player (although he has become more of one as he gets older), almost no one can pile the goals in every season like him.

4.) 09 May 2018 04:10:36
Take it easy vbbbb’s, it was just an expression people use when making comparisons.

5.) 09 May 2018 14:29:30
I think it’s funny how when the caps lost to the penguins all those years, the narrative was always ovie let the team down, he’s not a good leader, he underperformed (when his numbers didn’t say that at all), Crosby beat ovie again etc. Now that they finally slay the dragon and beat Crosby and the penguins, it has nothing to do with ovie over Crosby, it’s a team game lol I believe it’s a team game and it’s not one player over another, but for the last decade it’s been okay to say it was Crosby over ovechkin, now that it’s the other way for once we are all supposed to jump to poor Sidney’s defence. They lost, he lost. Deal with it. Ovie and the caps were better than Crosby and the penguins this time. No reason to hate either. They’re both great just very different. Saying ovechkin isn’t a superstar makes me wonder what you have been watching for the last 35 years. The guy is catching scoring milestones that guys made when there were 10-12 goals scored in every game in the 80s and 90s. He’s leaving hall of famers that played in an era that was far easier to score in his rear view. Get over yourself and your Canadian player only bias. Ovie plays like more of a Canadian than 90% of Canadians in the league today and if he was born in Montreal or Toronto and BC people would love him over Crosby.

6.) 09 May 2018 14:49:34
Lmao at the 10x response VB. That's hilarious. You took it so literal.

7.) 10 May 2018 00:50:24
numbers don't lie, how can he be overrated? if he was born in canada he would be loved. he's the best winger in the league in terms of all around play. guy backchecks and plays a good style game, hits, great stick, great speed, how can you hate this guy? oh because he's russian. hate on brett hull all you want, dude scored a tonne. but can't hold ovies skates

crosby is great, but is a little girl compared to ovie. you should compare them, they're totally different players. compare ovie to forsberg or lindros or mario, but not crosby or gretz.

8.) 10 May 2018 10:36:05
Can’t really compare Ovie to Lindros or Mario. Forsburg is good tho.

9.) 10 May 2018 20:10:55
Can't really compare Ovi to anyone. He's a pure sniper. One of the best one dimensional goal scorers of all time.
His goal scoring abilities are better than Crosbys. But Crosbys all around two way game, Offensive and defensive. Power play and penalty kill abilities Etc etc etc are better than Ovi. Hard to compare those two to anyone really.

10.) 10 May 2018 21:22:11
Ovie to Liane is a great comparison imo. But I guess Laine is unproven.

11.) 10 May 2018 23:20:23
Ovi had the work 10 times harder to get where he is today then Crosby. Grew up with barely nothing had to scrap stuff to pay for hockey and practice every night and day to become the player he is. Crosby was just given this "gift" and had wealthy parents they knew he eas going to be a star so of course he was treated as such and was able to become also the player he is. don't grt me wrong I like Crosby but he doesn't have that passion for the game like Ovi does.

Of course Ovi is worthless because he's a Russian tho. Wow can't believe you say he's overrated and not a superstar. he's going to play in this league longer then Crosby, because when he's one the ice nobody dares to hurt or even come close to him so he doesn't get hurt. Corsby gets hurt on a regular basis so again in 2-3 years when Crosby is retired and Ovi is still getting 40+ goals and 70+ points you tell me he's not a start okay?

12.) 11 May 2018 00:02:02
Yes I agree you could now compare Laine to Ovi. But hard to find someone to compare Ovi to. I think he stands alone for what he brings.

Wtf are you talking about Colt. Crosby is better than Ovi because he has a better ALL AROUND HOCKEY TALENT, not because of the way they were brought up. Wtf.
And no one said Ovi isn't a superstar. He most definitely is a legit NHL superstar. He's not overrated. He's the best pure goal scorer in the game. Maybe ever.

13.) 11 May 2018 00:46:00
Crosby a lil winging baby i would love to see ovi drop the gloves with him.

14.) 11 May 2018 16:39:33
Actually yup, Sosa said Ovi wasn't a superstar. Twice actually.

15.) 11 May 2018 22:25:41
Did you really just say Crosby dosent have the passion for the game? Ovie is litterly out of shape he has a beer gut and dosent train in the offseason. Crosby is a weirdo he eat, sleeps and dreams hockey to the point that it’d strange. Crosby trains/ try’s much harder then Ovie.

16.) 11 May 2018 23:06:57
2 things:
1) Crosby will play much more than 2-3 years. He’s played 75+ games in the past 5 season not including playoffs.
2) Just because someone grew up with more advantages and more natural talent doesn’t mean that Crosby didn’t put in just as much work as Ovechkin. You don’t think Crosby was out there everyday practicing to become the best player in the world? The last thing you should question about Crosby is his passion for the game.



05 May 2018 06:17:20
So Habs have 3rd.. atm.. looks like this Zadina character.. can anyone tell me much aboit him.. I don't follow much of the kids..
What's he about.?? And..who would you compare him to??


1.) 05 May 2018 13:22:22
I’d compare him to David Pasternak ( The 1st line winger on Boston excuse my spelling ) he’s a speedy shoot first winger, great hands and good playmaking ability that’s shadowed by his scoring touch much like Phil Kessel. Personally I think Carolina will take him at number two as a surprise. I think he’ll be a better player ther Svechnikov. Now if Montreal gets Svechnikov I’d compare him to Blake Wheeler. He’s a strong big bodied player who is a great skater for his size with a nice scoring ability . As a prospect he reminds me of Jesse Puljiravi ( EDM excuse spelling) but with more of a scoring touch.

2.) 05 May 2018 14:30:59
Svechinikov is supposed to be better than Zadina but there's rumor out there that Canes could take Zadina because he's from the same place as their first round selection last year - Martin Necas and they are good friends and played very well together world juniors. So we'll see. Both are projected top line wingers. Some even throw "elite" in their scouting reports for both them.

3.) 05 May 2018 19:05:07
I’ve read that if Svech was in 2017, he wouldve gone before Hischier. I think Zadina is much the same.

Both sre not as NHL ready as Dahlin or Brady Tkachuk, but they have the potential to be much better than the likes of Tkachuk.

4.) 07 May 2018 14:21:53
In terms of style of play he's been compared to laine. but that's not to say he's at the same level talent wise.

5.) 09 May 2018 20:42:22
He doesn’t have the size to be as powerful as laine, but should be a good goal scoring winger. I’ve seen Svechnikov play a lot because I have season tickets in Barrie. He’s really good, but when I hear some of these comparisons and expectations, I don’t see him living up to them. But could be wrong. I have seen some star players play for barrie and a lot of them less hyped than him struck me as better.

6.) 10 May 2018 10:37:58
Exactly what I was thinking @unbiasedJim.



24 Mar 2018 03:13:05
I know they are battling for a playoff spot, however is LA having the quietest decent season in the league??? If they do hold on to a playoff spot.. don't count these guys out.... I only see Nashville as the superior team in the West.., the other playoff teams they are on par at the least,, and.. they have a lot of post season experience. Quick is probably the best post season goalie of the 20tens...

It's a stretch.. but a Boston LA final would not suprised me...


1.) 24 Mar 2018 23:14:23
i feel the same way about the ducks, if they stay healthy they're always a pest in the playoffs. my darkhorse in the west.

2.) 25 Mar 2018 18:48:00
Ya. Good call Ovie. they could put on quite the run forsure.



23 Mar 2018 19:24:02
Hey Yup,, and McJesus...
OEL straight up for Drais??
Would you do it.???


1.) 23 Mar 2018 20:51:41
Edm would do it not Coyotes tho. If they didn't take Matthews for OEL whit take a player 8 notches behind.

2.) 23 Mar 2018 23:40:58
Drais isn't 8 notches behind Mathews.

3.) 24 Mar 2018 16:57:44
Drai is good sosa, but Matthews is 6 notches behind McDavid and Drai is 8 behind Matthews.

4.) 24 Mar 2018 21:54:26
They were never offered Matthews for OEL lol.

5.) 25 Mar 2018 00:26:19
Don't worry about Colt65, we already knew he was an idiot.
I'm not sure Sosa. Lots of variables in the question. Contracts and age what not.
And I just really really like Drai.
A month ago my obvious answer would be to work a deal around Nuge ++. Now with Nuge and mcdavids chemistry, I want to keep Nuge on mcdavids line and find Drai a winger and move Lucic to third line with Strome.
But then we still need to upgrade a D man somewhere. Like an OEL. I would try to get an OEL with a Klefbom, 1st + package or something if I could. And then trade Sekera for anything. See if that could all work.
Drai for OEL, I just don't know. Torn. Haha. It's a yes and a no? Can I do that.

6.) 25 Mar 2018 00:27:40
If Drai for OEL was to happen. And I don't think it would. It would open up trading Klefbom for a good winger. And that would improve the team no doubt.
But I also just don't think Drai will be traded.
OEL would have to have a reasonable extension obviously.

7.) 25 Mar 2018 18:49:10
I'm with you Yup. I really like Drais as well. be tough to part with him.

8.) 26 Mar 2018 02:33:08
I do think OEL is who Oil should target. And a top six winger. And a third pairing Vet cheaper D man.
With Klefbom, Sekera, Benning, This years 1st OR I'm even open to trading Puljijarvi, only if this 1st is top 4 and we get one of the top wingers in the draft. Then having that winger and Yamamoto could make Pul available. Could. Maybe. All I'm saying is I MIGHT be open to
Trading Pul. Right deal came around. Like in a deal for OEL. And keep Drai out of it. Lol.

9.) 29 Mar 2018 10:37:31
Only reason why you wanna trade pul is because you think he will be a bust like Paajarvi. And he's looking like a bust so far. Even Dubois is doing way better.

10.) 29 Mar 2018 13:27:31
Are you assuming Puljiarvi will be a bust like pajarvi because there names are similar? Because that’s the best investigative journalism you’ve ever done on here.

11.) 30 Mar 2018 05:28:22
What an idiot. Only reason I would want to trade him is because he has value to bring back what I would want. And I said the only reason I would make him available to trade is if a few other things happe. Man you're such a troll idiot. Impossible to ever have a conversation with how delusional idiotic you are.



21 Mar 2018 17:40:56
Lots of Oilers and fellow Habs fans in this site... so.. we both won't have out teams in the playoffs this year.. anyone jumping on someone's bandwagon.... I'm going to hop on the Jets.... how bout you guys.


1.) 21 Mar 2018 18:03:35
Peg is a nice choice. keeping it Canadian.
I've grown up and live in the GTA so i would have to say the leafs. but this is the first time in a long time i could say that - usually don't make the playoffs unfortunately. So in the past i have always been cheering for the underdogs. Really surprised for COL and NJD. and as always with these posts. Vegas.

Final answer. Leafs. lol.

2.) 21 Mar 2018 18:47:30
I'd like to see the jets win.

3.) 21 Mar 2018 20:37:35
I think Plekanec is on the jets bandwagon too. I would like to think that being a professional, it wouldn’t matter what team you play for. I really don’t think his heart is there and he looks terrible IMO with 0 points. The other game the puck dropped in front of him with a wide open net and he didn’t even take a whack at it. I hope I’m wrong but he even said in an interview that it’s going to take a while. His entire career he was taught to hate the leafs. Is it just me or does anyone else see a lack of effort? I understand that he wasn’t brought in to put up points but he’s had his chances to play with some good players, not just 4th liners.

4.) 21 Mar 2018 21:32:57
Leafs 17, I think it will just take time like he said he's averaging about 5 mins less a game then he's use to. he's strictly in a defensive role with the leafs I think he's starting like 77% of his shifts in the defensive zone that's got to be close to the most in the league. He might start producing offensively come playoff time when you might need it the most.

i'd be very surprised if his hatred for a team has anything to do with it considering I'm sure he has a love for money and he won't get much on his next contract if he doesn't score a point in the 20 or more games he plays for you guys this year. On top of that the leafs were one of the teams he mentioned he wouldn't mind going to if he was to be traded. Spending as long as he did with one team and then jumping to another playing a totally different system and given a different role is probably the reason for the total lack of offensive production. I figured he would have a couple points by now though.

5.) 21 Mar 2018 22:21:03
I believe he wanted to stay in the east for family reasons, hoping for a return to Montreal in the off season. I admit I haven’t seen every minute of every game, but I expected a little more. Starting in the defensive zone that much doesn’t help. His play just looks lackluster to me and Moore looks like the better option at 4th line center. Anyways, I’d like to see the Jets or Vegas make a deep run if the leafs bow out early.

6.) 21 Mar 2018 23:41:24
Don't get me wrong I agree he really hasn't been impressive yet.

7.) 22 Mar 2018 01:59:49
He wasn’t a guy I was too excited about acquiring and a buddy of mine really liked him. But I’m definitely giving him the benefit of the doubt to try and get it together. It’s not just on ice stuff that changes (different system, different line mates, younger room, less ice time) but off ice stuff like not sleeping in the same house half the time that he could have for 15 years, game day routine, favourite breakfast spot etc. It’s a whole culture shock that we will never understand but we can try to appreciate.

I wouldn't want to trade Caggulia. he jus seems what the league is all about these days. speed speed and more speed.
However I am not familiar with the guy from Philly, so maybe he is just as fast.

I honestly don't think Edmonton should do to many changes. I think they will be just fine. if. any changes need to be made, it will be in goal. let's see if Talbot can get back to 16/ 17 form. if he can. Oilers are contenders .
Pretty much anyone without the number 97 on his back played below expectations.
