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.

So with Tavares, Kadri and Mathews potential 11+ a year contract coming up.. that's well over 25 mill i'm centers..

Mathews to Arizona

1ST in 2019
Dvorak to Tor..

. Roast me..


1.) 03 Jul 2018 03:56:52
Tavares goes before Mathews come on he’s going no where no matter what the Package. That 25 mil for centers is worth it.

2.) 03 Jul 2018 03:58:17
Matthews isn’t going anywhere lol tavares is here to play with him and win, not to take over for Matthews.

3.) 03 Jul 2018 04:26:34
Leave there new found center situation as is please. After Marner, Nylander and Marleau, they have a ton of cheap options to fill the wings. I know defense is a concern but I say wait to see how this season goes. See if any defense develop and decide what to do with Gardiner.

4.) 03 Jul 2018 09:03:54
Yeah because Matthews gets you a franchise #1D, a likely top 10 pick and a solid, young future top 6er. Leafs fans are the worst.

5.) 03 Jul 2018 11:06:27
It’s a Montreal fan that proposed this. Leaf fans simply replied that Matthews is not going anywhere. I’m sorry Tavares chose his hometown over the money he could’ve had in Tamps. No need to be upset with us, you’re usually better than that.

6.) 03 Jul 2018 13:56:50
Ya Triplets. i'm a Habs fan.
I jus proposed it, cause as good as Tavares is. they still have a lot of issues in the back end. and this team is still not a Cup winner IMO. yes Pittsburgh has done it with Crosby and Malkin as 2 numbr 1s. however. they are both better than both Mathews and Tavares.
I get bringing in Tavares, however ig you guys want your cup. you have the best chance to do so with Mathews as a peice that can complete your team.

7.) 03 Jul 2018 19:32:31
Do you seriously think the Leafs would trade him for anything less than that package? I don't.

8.) 03 Jul 2018 21:25:03
Johnny t is better then Malkin imo and Matthews will be soon.



30 Jun 2018 15:23:51
Anyone able to explain why Bergevin got Steve Mason.??
Im confused by this move..


1.) 30 Jun 2018 16:06:09
Got a decent young NHLer in Armia and picks for taking on Masons contract. Mason already being shopped to other teams with MTL potentially retaining salary to make him more attractive.

2.) 30 Jun 2018 16:22:27
They should just keep Mason in case Price goes down.

3.) 30 Jun 2018 17:44:50
Yeah they should trade price and start the year with niemi and mason. but in reality they will probably buyout mason. They get back armia who is decent and 2 picks for simon bourque who was 8th on the depth chart on defence for laval.

4.) 30 Jun 2018 17:49:57
And just to add armia is a good two way guy who you will love when you watch him play for the habs. That's why they got steve mason.

5.) 30 Jun 2018 17:54:39
I forgot about Niemi.

6.) 30 Jun 2018 19:04:22
They are buying mason out hopefully Winnipeg signs him to a cheap one year deal.

7.) 30 Jun 2018 19:34:52
I was happy about the haul. I see Mason is now on waivers.
I like Armia.



25 Jun 2018 05:43:43
Carlson gets 8 mill a season???. Really??.. I don't even know if I consider him a top 10 dman in the game....
What are Doughty and Karlsson going to command.. .? If he's worth 8.. they are worth 11... 12??


1.) 25 Jun 2018 14:50:07
I think it was already pretty well known that doughty and Karlsson were going to get in the 11 mill+ range. Players were getting 10+ (Eichel, toews, Kane, kopitar) 2-3 years ago and the cap is up $8 mill again. RHD is the most sought after position and these are 2 of the best players in to world. Not shocking at all to see them get $11 mill. Did you think they were $8-9mill range?!?! Like Karlsson would sign in 2019 for what Phil Kessel was signing for 4 years back? Or for only a mill more than shea Weber signed 6 years before?

2.) 25 Jun 2018 15:03:42
I'm suprised he didn't get as much as subban. He's just as good.

3.) 25 Jun 2018 19:25:20
Yeah. I believe he may have left a bit on the table had he gone somewhere else. Not far more, but someone could have offered him 8.5-9. But he’s on a good team, in a role he’s comfortable in and with guys he likes playing with. Good for him to get paid.

4.) 25 Jun 2018 22:44:29
Yeah I think there were a couple teams that probably would have give him 9mil.

5.) 26 Jun 2018 04:24:35
I figured they were 10 mill. Karlsson and Doughty.

I dunno. only probably 2 guys on the game I believe deserve 10+ Crosby and whatever McDavid gets.

The way Gretzky and Lemuiex use to dominate. hmm although there is a max. what would they be worth. 20 mill Plus i'd say if it were allowed .

6.) 26 Jun 2018 05:00:18
. Crosby at 8.7. best contract in the game. especiallybof Carlson is 8.



24 Jun 2018 04:14:57
Hey Habby, Or Turkey..any thoughts on the Habs picks???
My only take... lots of Europeans... however I honestly don't know much or anything at all bout any of em...
Pretty inportant draft for this team, obviously way to early to tell , but happy?? Disappointed??
For me , just skeptical lol.. was over the moon when we got both Galchenyuk.. and then a few years later Sergachev.. so.... we will see.


1.) 24 Jun 2018 04:42:41
The player they took 3rd should be a good 2nd line something like Tyson Jost.

2.) 24 Jun 2018 05:59:45
It's too early to tell what kotkaniemi will be he could be a 1st line center someday I think he's probably 2 years away though. Ylonen is a great skater who a lot scouts feel has at least 2nd line upside. i don't know much about the Russian they picked next I didn't see him play all year but is suppose to be an offensive dman who plays physical. My favourite pick of the 2nd round was the big center jacob ollofson that they took at 56th I watch him a lot this year and I think he is a sure fire nhler could max out as a 3rd line center but he should be a good plays a real smart two way game.

3.) 24 Jun 2018 06:09:11
I also liked the hillis mcshane and fonstad picks they took 7 centers in this draft which is what they should have done. So I'm very pleased with what they did. harris and gorniak were a couple of under the radar picks but apparently they really liked what they saw in both guys. i saw a little of Harris and he appears to be quite fast not sure about much else from him but he can skate. The houde pick was a waste IMO and the guy they took in the 7th round I have not seen play. Overall I'd say a pretty solid draft.

4.) 25 Jun 2018 04:01:32
Thanks Habby. hopefully this chabges the fortunes of this team for years to come.
My biggest worry is 4 of the 6 picks were in Habs division. obviously we couldn't do anything about Dahlin. but. really worried Tkachuk and Zadina will haunt Habs for years to come. and we got 4th best of the 4 hopefully this Finnish kid proves me wrong.

5.) 25 Jun 2018 04:33:07
You guys can disagree all you want but Jesperi Kotkaniemi is a Finnish Tyson Jost. I really like Tyson Jost. A more developed comparison for me is Mika Zibanejad.

6.) 25 Jun 2018 05:02:47
We weren't really disagreeing with vbbbvvbb it was more just ignoring you lol.

7.) 25 Jun 2018 05:17:13
His playing style is nothing like that of tyson yost so it's not a good comparible IMO. If your trying to say he will score 20 pts in his rookie season and max out at 50 like zibanejad that's fine I guess. But that's more like your prediction and not really a comparison of players.

8.) 25 Jun 2018 05:28:03
Well of he's a Mika Zibanajed, then i'm really not excited. don't get me wrong , he's a good player. but nothing overly special. good solid player. at 3 overall, I want star qualities.

9.) 25 Jun 2018 12:21:33
It's tough to say like I said earlier if I was picking I would have went with what I felt was the safe pick and that was tkachuk. but kotkaniemi may have the most upside of the 3 he's going to take a little longer to get here I would think but he may be worth the wait. we are getting a top 6 forward for sure IMO his numbers as a 17 year old were impressive when he adds about 20 more lbs to his frame he should be good to go.

10.) 25 Jun 2018 14:40:51
I’m saying kotkaniemi offensive game is very similar to Josts. kotkaniemi Has more deffensive upside tho and I believe it’s abit better then Zibanjad’s.

11.) 25 Jun 2018 16:28:31
Sorry for the late response Sosa, but i'm really on the fence. I thought they had a decent 2nd round - hard not to with all the picks that they had though - lol. I'm still realy on the fence with Kotkaniemi. I was hoping to get Zedina and then work on a center through trade or FA. Ideally, find a trade to bring in RoR and then sign Stasney. Put RoR, Stasney and Danault down the middle and that is a huge issue fixed. I like that we stocked our shelves with centers, but again with the history of our farm league, we don't develop people at center very well. That is why i'm looking more toward a trade or signing scenario. Really wish we could have traded down if we were going after Kotk.



21 Jun 2018 13:17:15
Seemed like a few weeks ago, an no i'm not 100% on this.. but seemed like Zadina was the consensus #3 pick.. now it seems like people are talking about everyone but him at 3...Has he done something to hurt his ranking???


1.) 21 Jun 2018 15:25:54
He hasn't but a lot of insiders think montreal will take kotkaniemi at 3rd which will change the arrangement of the players a little. Zadina IMO could go anywhere from 2nd to 5th that's the same I've thought for about 6 months now.

2.) 21 Jun 2018 21:02:59
I’d love to see a Keller-Zandina line 🤤.

3.) 22 Jun 2018 03:00:31
Kotkaniemi is the strongest C in the draft and peeps are thinking MTL takes a shot at finally getting a #1C over another solid winger. It’s not that Zadina has hurt his value, simply that Kotkaniemi has increased his.

No reason Oilers should trade Nurse, especially to the Leafs. I see a potential final coming between these teams.
Edmonton has the same aspirations as the Leafs, and Nurse will be a big part of helping Oilers accomplish this.

Why not McJesus? Its Tanev. if anything. trade the 3rd for a 2nd. but I think Tanev is highly overtated on this site. yes, he's a solid top 4 guy. but he seems to get overvalued a lot on this site.
