Stamkos is not getting traded because Tampa wouldn't get anything for him. He's a Ufa who is going to test the market, he's basically a rental player, might get a late 1st round pick for him.

Also Tampa Bay is going to make a cup run. Stamdaddy is getting an 8 year, 11 million per, deal on July 1. Probably not with Tampa.


1.) 17 Feb 2016 02:42:26
First of all they could get a ton for Stamkos before the deadline. Teams pay for UFA studs. Stamkos has a no trade clause, so for all we know he could have told Yzerman he won't waive it. Also the Lightning offered 8.5 million over 8 years, I doubt they bump that up 2.5 million per season. Sorry bud but Stammer is probably gone after this season.

2.) 17 Feb 2016 03:11:13
Much worse players have gotten more than a late 1st as a rental so no its not because they wouldn't get nothing for him. Also Tampa is the only team that can give him 8 years. If 8/ 11 does it I think Tampa signs the dotted line when it comes down to it.

3.) 17 Feb 2016 07:36:01
I can't even name on how many levels you're wrong.

4.) 17 Feb 2016 18:09:22
yeah you're wrong about Tampa not being able to get anything for him. Maybe you can't get what you want and/ or what you could get if he had some term left over.

As for what he gets and from whom on July 1st is a bit of a mystery. I think 7 years (bc he can't get 8 from another team) and $10-$11 million makes sense. Not convinced Tampa will pay it though.

Leafs: Drouin

TBL: Komarov, kappinen, Harrington, pitsburgh 1st

(basically the package they got for kessel)
Drouin will be expensive.


1.) 13 Jan 2016 04:18:41
I agree that he won't be cheap, but that might actually be too much.

2.) 13 Jan 2016 08:06:59
In other words Komarov + Kesssel for Drouin. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

3.) 13 Jan 2016 21:01:13
^^ Agreed - I don't see why Toronto would give up anything of substance for Stamkos at this point.



07 Jan 2016 01:02:29
Todays trades and thoughts:

LA: Schenn, Lecavalieer
PHI:weal, 3rd

This was a good deal for both.
Schenn is low risk as his deal expires this year. I actually think schenn is built for LA style hockey and for the first time he is on a good team.
Vinny is retiring after this year and half his salary is retained, again low risk.

NASH: Johanson
CBJ: Seth Jones

How does the Nashville GM still have a job? he obviously doesn't understand leverage and how much more valuable young elite defensemen are.
Absolute steal by CBJ. This will benefit ryan murray a lot.

Edmonton just solidified their stance as the worst franchise in the NHL by not being in on the Seth Jones deal. Peter Chiarelli is an overrated GM, not being in on this deal rivals trading tyler seguin.

If CBJ get Auston mathewes in the draft they completely turn around their franchise with this move.


1.) 07 Jan 2016 03:37:32
Johansen for Jones killed the oilers.

2.) 07 Jan 2016 04:07:48
The deal was pretty fair between CBJ and NSH, obviously if CBJ gets Matthews they'll eventually win this trade, but RyJo is a heck of a player who was getting treated real poorly by Torts and the management. Playing for a quality guy like David Poile should really help his confidence.

3.) 07 Jan 2016 04:09:47
Damn, I didn't realize stickboi has all the behind-the-scenes info in the Oilers organization, but he seems to know with certainty that Chiarelli wasn't working the phones trying to trade for Jones. Boy howdy, I sure underestimated stickboi's status in the NHL world. He should have his own rumors forum, guyz. I mean, totes, right?

4.) 07 Jan 2016 04:09:53
Well Poile is a GM and you're behind a computer monitor so you can't judge him lol I actually like this move for NSH.

5.) 07 Jan 2016 07:20:54
This guy is clueless.



07 Nov 2015 22:28:25
Whats Boston going to do?
They have subban in the AHL
They are obviously trying to dump salary and re-tool

They want a winger to replace lucic and eriksson may leave at the end of the year.

Would they do:



Rask is BIG $ and playing bad, If subban is the future do they concider this?


1.) 08 Nov 2015 00:10:36
To be honest it's a pretty good trade but this probably wouldn't happen. Rivals don't like trading with eachother.

2.) 08 Nov 2015 01:34:45
No, bad.

3.) 08 Nov 2015 01:35:17
Bad bad bad.

4.) 08 Nov 2015 02:38:18
Rask > Jvr
Eriksson > Bernier

I think Subban would be part of a bigger deal and he won't make rask expendable until he proves your worth.

5.) 08 Nov 2015 03:55:35
Toronto is rebuilding, why would they do this?

6.) 08 Nov 2015 14:16:05
You may want to buy Boston supper and a few drinks before you try to rip them like that. just sayin'

7.) 08 Nov 2015 14:18:39
JVR>>>>Eriksson is much more appropriate.

8.) 08 Nov 2015 21:45:13
I would do it from the Leafs perspective. They have zero goaltending. Lots of promise for the future of their forward core, a little bit on D but nothing in the crease. don't think it would happen anyway.



04 Nov 2015 22:18:53
Ottawa should throw an offer at philly for Giroux at the dedline

Zibinijad, 1st and prospects.

Clade can help out ryan and can turn Ottawa into a dangerous underdog in he east.

Anderson is a goalie that can steal games in the po's.


1.) 05 Nov 2015 01:45:10
99% sure Giroux doesn't get traded. Unless you grossly overpay.

2.) 05 Nov 2015 02:18:14
that be a lot of prospects probley including either puempal or Lazar or both.

Is anyone else a little worried that Dubas tried to trade the 4th overall pick for picks 8, 34,38,58 to CBJ. Thank god that the jackets were hell bent on werinski.

Someone should tell this Dubas kid its quality not quantity. the kessel trade and trading pick 24 were bad enough, i'm scared what he will try and do next.

We need an actual GM in there asap, Dubas can stick to analizing stats he's an incompetent GM.

Hire Futa the LA assistant GM.


1.) 22 Jul 2015 05:14:22
1. LA is keeping fuda, for the remainder of his contract at least
2. there is very little difference in quality between picks 4 and 8 tradiotionally, and this draft didn't seem much different.
3. what's wrong with adding 3 picks, 2 of those in the top of the 2nd round, to only move down 4 spots. not like they were moving from 1/2 to 5/6.
4. turning the 24th pick into 3 or 4 other picks in 2nd/3rd rounds is good. after the top half of the 1st round it is extremely hard to predict and talent tends to become more equal, out of the draft anyways. of course there are late 1st round steals, but that's as likely as getting them in the 2nd round.

2.) 22 Jul 2015 05:50:47
Where you getting this info from? I haven't heard that. Rather, I'd heard Cbj was pushing hard to move up to get Hanifan or Provorov and couldn't get it done.

3.) 22 Jul 2015 14:17:29
@Chirp its actually legit, its on some fansided website or something but I read it.

4.) 22 Jul 2015 18:25:40
Jackets should have done it! Three 2nds or whatever is a lot but to get Hanifin would've been worth it

5.) 22 Jul 2015 18:35:09
It's early on in the process, but I think Dubas and Hunter are starting to prove that they know what they are doing.

In terms of the trade - I am of two minds with this sort of thing. Yes it's about quality not quantity, but at the same time well rounded teams generally do well compared to teams with 2 or 3 super stars. I anticipate Marner will be a better player than anyone the Leafs could have drafted at 8, but then to get 4 second round picks(assuming they traded down again at 24) in addition to 8, seems like a decent consolation prize.

6.) 23 Jul 2015 00:01:00
^ There is a video that shows Toronto offering the package at the draft and CBJ turns it down. Just google Toronto offers CBJ 4th overall and you can see it.

I am unimpressed with everything The new regime has done so far. The kessel trade was a disaster, retaining salary for 7 years was a big mistake expecially since the return was an undersized forward prospect who may never make the nhl, a protected 1st round pick and 2 AHL guys.

The only thing that can save these guys is if they can convince stamkos to come next summer.

7.) 23 Jul 2015 08:14:54
Not going to google it, not interested enough. Never said it wasn't legit, just hadn't ever heard that. But I did hear a lot about CBJ wanting to trade up for Hanifan or Provorov.

Speaking of Provorov, good lord. Philly was one of the biggest winners of the 1st round IMO. Provorov and Konecny? You kidding me? Provorov alone is a grand prize, I actually wouldn't have been surprised if he went before Hanifan.



22 Jul 2015 02:09:54
Holtby asking the caps for 8 mil per year is actually insane.

He is not even a top 10 goalie to begin with and goalies of his talent level are a dime a dozen.

His realistic value is 4.5 million.

Asking for 8 million is insulting, they should just end negotiations and trade him. James reamer, would be a cheep replacement or they could go young and get subban, fucale, vaseleskie.

I would cut ties with holtby right now for being that ridiculas.


1.) 22 Jul 2015 05:18:17
you obviously don't understand the arbitration process. he's not asking for 8 mil a year over any type of term, he's trying to argue that's what he's worth. every player overvalues themselves going into arbitration and every team undervalues their player going into arbitration, this is because the number usually lands in the middle somewhere. so, let's say play X thinks he's worth 5 mil, he'll request 6 or 6.5 in arbitration, while the team may think he is worth 4 mil and will put in a number of 3.5 or 3 in arbitration.then, if settled by and arbitrator, the number will likely land in the 4-5 mil range. hope the example helps.

2.) 22 Jul 2015 07:06:19
exactly shankar.

Oh and no, they could not get Vasilevskiy.

3.) 22 Jul 2015 08:47:30
It would be a mistake to trade Holtby. He is asking high to try and settle in the $6M range as he feels what they offered him was a joke so he replied with a joke. How negotiating works. Ask high, settle where you are happy. He is a top ten goalie in the league and if you trade him away now and go with one of the young ones you mentioned the Caps go from a legit cup contender to feeling like making the second round is a successful season. They are in a win now mode. Exciting team, They need Holtby.
And I'm not even a big Caps fan. But I see how valuable Holtby is to them at this point.
You can have Scrivens and 2017 1st if you want to get rid of him for being "ridiculous". I'd take him any day.

4.) 23 Jul 2015 00:08:48
Holtby is overrated. Not a top 10 goalie.

As far as me not understanding the arbitration process. The arbitrator doesn't take into consideration what the player is asking for, he looks at comparable goalies (stats) and awards the player money based on that. Has nothing to do what the player is asking for.

Holtby is the ryan oreilly of goalies. Decent player who is extremely overrated. And wants to get ridiculously overpaid.

Washington should get rid of him, save your money for the players.

5.) 23 Jul 2015 08:02:18
He's no super star goalie but 6-6.5 mil long term could be a fair contract

6.) 23 Jul 2015 15:01:31
stickboi you've shown several times that you have no idea of anything. Next proof right here.

7.) 24 Jul 2015 04:44:08
Holtby is not worth anything close to 8 million, feel your head buddy.

Your the biggest hack on here.

8.) 24 Jul 2015 07:15:56
lol stickboi, you seriously don't understand the process at all. holtby submits a number, washington submits a number. the arbitrator must either select one of those or pick his own in the range of the two. so, yes, the number holtby suggests matters. I won't go into how he gets to that number any more sice I've explained it numberous other times on here.



02 Jul 2015 19:46:43
If you want to steal players off the leafs now is clearly the time.


1.) 03 Jul 2015 03:10:23
They will even retain salary and not eat a quality piece back! Too bad the only useful players on the team is JVR and maybe Reilly, even he is overrated already.

2.) 03 Jul 2015 09:48:37
Until a week ago Edmonton had one useful line. They're still not all that. For 3 years I've been telling people to watch out for the oilers. One of these years I'm sure they will be the team to beat. Until they actually prove something, stop acting like Edmonton is the best team in the NHL. I cheer for all canadian teams, I'm not McJealous as you call it.



02 Jul 2015 19:42:18
The Kessel trade was actually the worst thing I have ever seen.

They would have been better off trading him for a 7th round pick and not retaining salary.

Kapinin is a med level prospect, may never play in the NHL, Harrington is an AHLer, (best case he is a 6th defenceman. And the first rounder will be 30th overall because we just gave the pens the key to winning the stanly cup.

On top of all of this we are covering 1.2 million of his cap hit. just rediculas.

The leafs should have hired a GM before making this trade because clearly Hunter, Dubas and Shanny have no experience trading nhl talent.

When you lose a trade to Jim Ruthford it is a bad day.


1.) 03 Jul 2015 14:46:12
Lol. Well said, that last line is too hilarious. Ain't that the truth tho!

2.) 03 Jul 2015 18:18:28
I'm the last in defense of the leafs, but saying Kapanen might never play in the NHL is just ignorant. Sure, there's a small chance. Any prospect has a chance of tht happening. But Kapanen almost made the Pens last year out of camp, so he can't be that bad. Not a great piece, but a solid-good one.



27 Jun 2015 17:44:58
Not very impressed with the Leafs draft.

Trading out of the first round to pick up garbage 3rd round pics didn't make sense to me. Especially with merkley, juulson , Roy, konecky still on the board.

Missing kylington by 1 pic after he fell made no sense either.

But the big thing is no trades, lots of young defenceman were moved for cheep and shanny wasn't in on any of it.
No Kessel deal
No phaneuf deal
No Gardiner deal
No bozak deal
No lupul deal
No big changes at all, all talk and no action.

Hats off to Buffalo though, Murray made some big moves, the sabers are a potential playoff team now. Kane, lehner, Reinhart, eichel, o'reilly. They completely re vamped their roster in 4 hours.


1.) 27 Jun 2015 18:25:57
Apart from the non-trades, the Leafs had one of, if not the best draft of all teams.

Got several late(r) round steals. Bracco, Timashov, Korostelev. Amazing draft for them. Tons of skill.

2.) 27 Jun 2015 18:28:56
Really? I myself am nothing close to a leaf fan but what they did this weekend was a step in the right direction. They didn't need to move those players at the draft, they can move them in the offseason lots of time. Also for the trades they did make it was 1 pick for 2 picks moving down gaining good depth prospects for the future. You look at some of the guys the leafs drafted and they may be small but they got a lot of speed and talent. Also I think they stole Marincin for EDM.

3.) 27 Jun 2015 18:46:03
They had a really solid draft. Their last pick, Nikita Korostelev was rated as a 2nd/3rd round talent and they got him in the 7th.

4.) 27 Jun 2015 19:37:28
turning 24 into 3 picks in the 34-68 range was a good idea imo. this was hunter's draft, and they gave him a chance to actually make some picks. only time will tell if they turn into anything. as for the kylington comment, what you said makes no sense, is toronto just suppossed to get whatever they want? cgy wanted, and he was there for them to pick, literally that simple.

personally, I don't mind that there were no trades. woul rather no trades than trading for less than what players are worth just for the sake of getting ri of them. lupul and bozak I wouldn't really mid if they did that to, but the other names have to get some quality back to move.

5.) 28 Jun 2015 16:56:39
agree i'm happy with the leafs draft, also adding marincin was a good depth move. off season just started, anyone calling for sweeping change immediately is delusional.

They need to trade bozak though. he needs to go in order to make room for nylander, marner, stamkos.

I hope they don't sign franson, he will get overpaid in FA.

And besides they already have a franchise defenseman his name is Morgan Reilly.

Leafs shouldn't do any more stuiped FA signings. Build through smart trades and the draft.

Spezza was a pending UFA who requested a trade. He was also out of his prime.

Kessel is locked up at a long term deal at market value. Just about to enter his prime. Has not requested a trade.

Im not even sure why the leafs would want to trade him, they are better off trading JVR for a center to play with kessel.

Anyway kessel won't be unloaded for s*** prospects and a second round pick.
