Toronto: Kasperi Kappanen

Calgary: Rasmus Andersson

Toronto- gets a RHD to Replace Hanisey with Rielly.

Calgary- Kappanen steps in to take the RW position on the 2nd line. Calgary needs forwards more then Dman. + Valamaki is coming up next season




22 Apr 2019 01:50:09
Karlsson to NJ as a FA? Wouldn't that be an amazing fit? The team has a solid foundation a top end forward group. They are missing a solid defence but Karlsson brings that.


1.) 22 Apr 2019 02:55:08
How would that be an amazing fit tho like not at all imo lol better options.

2.) 22 Apr 2019 15:42:46
Who else has the cap space/ foundation?

3.) 22 Apr 2019 15:46:47
I see why you say NJ (Hughes) but they are still so far off so i agree with mcj.

4.) 22 Apr 2019 17:45:40
What do you mean last season they made the playoffs and put up a fight with a healthy Hall they are a playoff contender. With Hall, Hughes, Karlsson And a potential break out season from Hischer they have potential to go deep.

5.) 22 Apr 2019 18:48:31
They are not contenders lol at all. They should make playoffs with a healthy team and a couple new better dman (you could include Karlsson sure) but they are going to get dumped in playoffs just like they did when they made it. Maybe in 3 years they’ll be legit cup contenders but they are not there yet.

My idea of a better team for Karlsson? I think Carolina would be a good fit. They can trade off some dmen they already have for some quality forwards and they certainly have the cap space to add Karlsson. They are better than the devils now and are on the right track.

I’m not saying NJ is a bad place I just don’t think it’s a perfect fit.

6.) 22 Apr 2019 19:37:25
I was thinking florida as a potential spot or even rangers could be nice. If rangers added panarin as well as karlsson they have many young players and kaapo who will join after the draft. If they get adam fox from carolina thatll also enhance their team as well. They also clearly did better this year than new jersey as well although hall was gone for a big chunk yes, but one player can't win you a bunch of games alone. i think rangers could potentially be good really quick.

7.) 22 Apr 2019 20:11:06
Perfect fit is Florida, dump a little more space and sign Panarin and Karlsson. I don't know of they go after Bob if Luongo is still on the books.

I do agree Karlsson changes NJ from playoff hopeful to challenger though.

8.) 23 Apr 2019 03:45:31
Because of the depth of Carolina I discluded them. Rangers are much worse then devils especially with a healthy Hall. Florida is thought to be signing bob and Paniran. Philly could be a good fit.



21 Apr 2019 22:23:34
Edmonton: Jesse Puljujarvi And Adam Larsson

Buffalo: Rasmus Ristolainen

Edmonton- With Rasmus Ristolainen on the market Edmonton should be jumping on him. A top pairing Elite PP presence. Risto while isn't known to be a stud defensively he has proven to be able to play over 30 min a night. With a lesser role he'd be much more effective on Edmonton he'd be the 1D but wouldn't play as much.

Buffalo- Dahlin is the most hyped defensive prospect ever and Risto right now is overshadowing him on the depth chart there is no need having two top pairing offensive deffensman when they have no defensive dman especially now since Montour brings another offensive presence. Larsson fills the role on the top pairing with Dahlin perfectly. Jesse Puljujarvi bring a potential top 6 presence to the Sabres a change of scenery could benefit him drastically.


1.) 22 Apr 2019 00:40:31
I don't follow the Sabres but why is Risto overshadowing Dahlin on the depth chart? Doesn't Dahlin play on the left side while Risto plays on the right?

2.) 22 Apr 2019 01:01:35
Risto is basically younger Faulk (lol) and we know how you feel about him so I’m going to say no thanks from oilers. And in general no from oil, Risto was the masters winner this year oilers do not need that.

3.) 21 Apr 2019 23:54:49
Not bad tbh.

4.) 22 Apr 2019 15:49:35
1. Risto is not a younger Faulk Risto is one of the most physical deffensman in the nhl Risto is also better defensively but unlike Faulk he is the go to guy on the Sabres and has one of the highest TOIs in the NHL if you decrease his ice time I’m sure his defensive stats would look much better

2. Risto over shadows him because Risto is on the top PP where as Dahlin is on the second ( they use 1 dman on the PP)



20 Apr 2019 02:30:12
Edmonton: Milian Lucic And 8th overall

Rangers: Future Considerations

Rangers get another top 10 pick and can afford to take Lucics salary as they are in a rebuild.

Oilers dump that toxic contract and mark the beginning to a brighter future.

Obviously Edmonton fans will disagree with the magnitude of his negative value but what do you guys think?


1.) 20 Apr 2019 12:05:40
Oilers fans realize it’s an anchor of a contrat; but they also know that they can’t afford to trade the pick as they need more high end talent in the pipeline (especially with players on affordable ELC’s) .

They need one of those cap-hit-free buyouts (unfortunately that would probably only come from a lockout), or for Lucic to retire or something or to find a way to put him on LTIR (maybe he gave Hossa a high five and contracted his diaper rash) .

2.) 20 Apr 2019 14:05:22
Yah a LTIR excuse would definitely be ideal.

3.) 20 Apr 2019 16:58:22
The Oilers give up too much to dump Lucic's contract.

4.) 20 Apr 2019 18:48:11
Future considerations lmao this is the nhl not a bum league.

5.) 20 Apr 2019 21:29:23
What? Players have been traded for future considerations hundreds of times?

6.) 20 Apr 2019 22:36:04
if the Oilers asked for a 7th in return the deal would be off the table right? lol.

7.) 20 Apr 2019 22:37:47
or is the future considerations belesky.

8.) 21 Apr 2019 17:06:02
Sorry vb I’ll put it this way, I don’t think a player with that bad of contract like Lucics can just be traded for future considerations alone, and the fact oil trading a top 10 pick like I don’t thunk the league would allow that haha.



18 Apr 2019 22:16:06
Nashville: PK Subban And Elli Tolvanen

Pittsburgh: Phil Kessel, Justin Schultz And 1st 2019

Nashville- Gets Kessel whom would debatably be their best forward, a 1st round pick and a replacement for Subban. Subban is apparently unwanted in Nashville and Tolvanen looks like he doesn't fit in their system. This makes Nashville a better team today and possibly in the future.

Pittsburgh- Subban is coming off a bad season but is still a 1D. Defence is currently Pittsburgh's weakness and the addition of Subban improves that. Tolvanen is a replacement for Kessel and could be a huge future addition. Kessel seem to be the piece for to go for a shakeup


1.) 19 Apr 2019 03:19:02
I'm wondering if Nashville would be more inclined to make a deal to free up some cap room with this trade they take back slightly more I think.

2.) 19 Apr 2019 06:12:45
I see zero reason why Nashville would make that pick. Zero.

3.) 19 Apr 2019 06:12:51
That trade *.

4.) 19 Apr 2019 21:03:21
For one Justin Schultz is looking like a stud and could replace what Subban brings. They dump Subban who they don’t want. And they get a star forward who is better then Forsburg currently imo.

5.) 19 Apr 2019 21:03:56
But Habby you make a extremely valid point.




vbbbvvbb's talk posts with other poster's replies to vbbbvvbb's talk posts


17 Apr 2019 23:24:49
Apparently it is "100% certain" Subban is moved this offseason according to multiple sources. 29 years old with a 9 million cap hit. Reasons are due to cap concerns but some speculate it is due to injuries/locker room interactions.

Probably won't return much who do you guys think will be interested? He probably wants to go to a big market team. Pittsburgh something around Kessel? Toronto around Nylander? ( hopefully not ). New Jersey could fit him in cap wise and would be a fit but what would NJ give? Either New York?


1.) 18 Apr 2019 06:24:42

2.) 18 Apr 2019 14:08:12
Subban in a Yotes Jersey would be greasy but him and OEL would make a dirty pairing. + they have the cap.

3.) 18 Apr 2019 14:08:27

4.) 18 Apr 2019 16:24:01
@sosa I'd trade alzner for him lol.

5.) 18 Apr 2019 17:52:47
I don't want him back in MTL. We need LD more than Subban. He was a defensive liability most of the time.

6.) 18 Apr 2019 19:10:20
How about we add McCarron to sweeten the deal . lol.

7.) 18 Apr 2019 21:11:54
Even though I don't really want him back i'd go as high as alzner and Weise but that's my final offer lol.

8.) 18 Apr 2019 22:14:06
On another note wasn't his hit on Benn very similar to the one kucherov was suspended for?

9.) 18 Apr 2019 23:11:22
I didn't see the hit .

10.) 19 Apr 2019 03:46:03
It seems like Subban is gaining a reputation as a dirty player, which I hate to see since he was a favourite of mine.

11.) 19 Apr 2019 17:31:02
when he hits someone he falls on top of them and just lays there or sits there on them not letting them up to get back into the play he is a tool.

12.) 20 Apr 2019 22:38:46
I doubt its 100% guarantee since Subban needs to waive to go anywhere they want him to go.



14 Apr 2019 19:19:04
Lehner and the islanders 4th line are the MVPs so far in this playoffs imo.


1.) 15 Apr 2019 01:36:52
Everyone laughed at Lou Lamorello for trading for Matt Martin but that move turned out amazing. Best shut down line In the game by far at the moment.

2.) 15 Apr 2019 04:26:39
Cbj is mvp

3.) 15 Apr 2019 20:49:05
No Cbj isn't Tampa is just playing terrible like absolutely horrendous anyone who watches hockey would agree. NYI could win the Cup if there 4th line keeps playing the way they are.

4.) 16 Apr 2019 00:14:11
Islanders are also playing the worse team in the east imo. Let's see how they do against a good team in the 2nd round. If they are still winning then maybe ill jump on the bandwagon too.

5.) 17 Apr 2019 01:11:44
Pittsburgh the worst team in the east? They’re much better then Toronto. Crosby, Guzentzel, Malkin, Kessel And Letang vs Mathews, Marner, Tavares, Nylander And Rielly? I’ll take Pittsburgh’s core short term.

6.) 17 Apr 2019 15:43:04
Yeah but the problem is they have nothing else Toronto doesn’t have the best depth in the league or anything but they do have an edge on pits on both offense and even defense combine that with most of Pittsburgh’s core is aging and or one hit away from retiring and yes imo they have the worst team of all those that made the playoffs in the east.

7.) 17 Apr 2019 16:44:49
Lol yeah VBBVVVBBBV you can’t just compare half a team. that’s not how hockey works.

Where do you draw the line? The Oilers arguably have a better “core” with McDavid, Draisaitl, RNH, etc. than a lot of teams in the West. Doesn’t mean they are a better team.

8.) 17 Apr 2019 20:32:21
Okay unsportsmanlike I’ll do a in depth analysis for you of lines

1st line

Rust-Crosby-Guzentzel vs Hyman-Tavares-Marner

Pittsburgh wins

2nd line

Hornqvist-Malkin-Kessel vs Johnsson-Mathews-Kappanen

Pittsburgh wins

3rd line

Simon-Bjustad-McCann vs Marleau-Kadri-Nylander

Toronto wins

4th lines are a draw

PP Pittsburgh wins

PK Toronto wins

1st pair

Dumoulin-Letang vs Hanisey-Rielly

Pittsburgh win? It’s close

2nd pair

Matta-Gubrandson vs Muzzin and Zaitsev

Toronto wins

3rd pair

Johnson-Schultz vs Gardiner and Dermotte

Toronto probably wins

Murray vs Andersen I mean this is very debatable I mean Andersen is very good and consistent but Murray is phenomenal at times and really takes it to the next level but can be inconsistent.



16 Mar 2019 03:18:15
If team Canada were to ice a team to play in a hypothetical Olympics next season do you guys believe it's be the best team ever assembled?

Ex-Jamie Benn,Giroux,O'Rielly,Getzlaf And Marner. 2 of those 5

Marc Andre Vlasic-Shea Weber



1.) 16 Mar 2019 04:04:23
Gaudreau is an American and there got to be better options then vlasic by now.

2.) 16 Mar 2019 05:33:43
Eww I can’t believe I forgot he was American. Maybe replace him with Marner? And Vlasic is a great Defensive deffensman he'd be on the top PK. The left shot means a lot as it’s a much rarer position that puts him ahead of Subban And Letang.

3.) 16 Mar 2019 13:50:34
Yeah canada is not as strong on the left side and the fact vlasic has been there before probably gets him the nod. But I'd sooner take someone else if it was me, he hasn't looked as good lately.

4.) 16 Mar 2019 14:28:30
I can’t think of anyone else can you?

5.) 16 Mar 2019 14:33:04
Also Sweden’s Deffense is amazing.

Dahlin-Lindholm/ Gustafson

Just thought of Chabot possibly taking MAV’s spot but I think Canada would take the experience.

6.) 16 Mar 2019 15:09:12
How about room for Subban?

Very strong team. for me Team Canada 87 is the best. maybe cause I was just a boy and those guys were my idols as a kid.
But other than Gaudreau thing, good team VB.

7.) 16 Mar 2019 22:35:12
I'd sooner Brodie for one.

8.) 16 Mar 2019 23:42:58
TJ Brodie over MAV? That’s an extremely bold statement.

9.) 17 Mar 2019 06:08:56
Yeah I think he's better it's not that bold of a statement cause I'm sure there are more people that think so too.

10.) 17 Mar 2019 14:34:51
While that Canada roster is superb, I think what’s more impressive is Canada’s depth, and the fact you could ice a “Canada B” (and maybe even a “Canada C” team) that would probably give every team in the tourney (including the A-team) a run for their money, especially in a one-game elimination.

Huberdeau Point Marner
Monahan Barzal Stone
Couture Johannson Konecny
Domi Couturier Gallagher

Keith Subban
Muzzin Parayko
Chabot Ekblad
Theodore / Barrie

Binnington / Kuemper

11.) 17 Mar 2019 14:35:01
I really don’t think there is make a post about it if you want.

12.) 17 Mar 2019 16:41:40
I don't want and whether or not the 7 people on here agree with me or not wouldn't change my mind anyway lol.

13.) 17 Mar 2019 19:50:28
Unsportsmanlike you could even add Letang to that roster.

14.) 17 Mar 2019 20:37:09
You’re right the depth in Canada is amazing each of the 3 teams would compete they do something like this in the U17 championships each year.

Canada A-

Hoffman-Couture-E. Kane

Marc Andre Vlasic-Subban


Canada B



Binnigton/ Dubnyk

Canada C

E. Staal-R. Johansson-Duchene



15.) 17 Mar 2019 23:55:18
Fowler is also ’Merican.

16.) 18 Mar 2019 04:18:39
Fowler was born in Ontario.

17.) 18 Mar 2019 08:07:57
Subban before Weber imo.

18.) 18 Mar 2019 14:26:34
You should Move to Nashville boom boom.

19.) 19 Mar 2019 12:14:02
Even if Fowler was born in Ontario he’s American and his international team is the USA. Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think he’s allowed to change it. At the very least not as long as he’s playing in the US. A quick google says it’s 4 years competing for new country internationally in non IIHF events, 4 years without playing for old country, and have to spend all 4 years playing only in the new country to change without acquiring new citizenship.

20.) 19 Mar 2019 13:55:19
Yeah possibly.

21.) 20 Mar 2019 15:14:13
I wish Habby! At this point Weber is very slow and he's costing us games! Why would I want him in the supposed Olympiques.

22.) 20 Mar 2019 17:31:35
Yeah ok weber is costing us games lol. Go back to bed.

23.) 20 Mar 2019 19:19:07
Lol “ Weber costing games “.

24.) 20 Mar 2019 21:27:33
i lost habby at brodie over vlasic

someone needs to watch the sharks.

25.) 21 Mar 2019 00:29:01
How is Weber costing Habs games?

26.) 21 Mar 2019 01:33:29
Yeah vlasic has played good the last 10 games or so but before that a lot of people were thinking he was in decline me being one of them. I still think it tbh. But if he continues to play like his old self like he has the last 10 games then you put vlasic on the team over Brodie cause what separates them is the fact vlasic has been there before.

27.) 21 Mar 2019 01:41:50
Someone needs to watch for more then a handful of games. If you did you would know vlasic was horrible the first half of the year and has only got better since they cut down his minutes.

28.) 21 Mar 2019 21:05:29
i'll be honest, i haven't watched a lot of sharks, but i do watch a lot of flames and brodie isn't what team canada would need, they don't need high scoring offense only dmen, they have the offence, they need proper defensemen who can shut down ahead of produce offense.

29.) 21 Mar 2019 23:38:05
He's solid defensively.



15 Mar 2019 01:43:37
I know this is a crazy far fetched idea but should the Jets consider parting ways with Laine? He is obviously very young at only 20 it's his 3rd year in the nhl and it's his worst by a good amount and Is probably going to get a 9-10 million dollar contract. I believe he should be putting up somewhere very close to Ovie judging by skill set but that's just not the case. With Laine persona I personally believe he should be on a team where he is THE go to guy. On the wing in Winnipeg he's shadowed by Wheeler. Would it be mutually beneficial to part ways? If someone offersheeted Winnipeg at 10millon ( gain 4 1st rd picks ) would you guys match?


1.) 15 Mar 2019 03:43:08
Absolutely NOT!
Overshadowed by Wheeler?! Wheeler is a set-up man, if anything Wheeler is a compliment to Laine.
Sorry, dude, but this is “silly” and that’s putting it lightly.

2.) 15 Mar 2019 05:07:09
Parting ways with him when his value is at a low would be bad asset management.

They should try and take advantage of the down year and get him signed long-term on a team friendly deal.

3.) 15 Mar 2019 11:21:28
You really believe he’ll take a discount I believe he’ll ask for Mathews type money and some teams would pay it. If he signs long term my guess is 10 million+. And yes by overshadowed I mean he’s on the 2nd line only playing 15 min a night. He should be on a 1st line playing 20+ min.

4.) 15 Mar 2019 15:08:09
I agree with Unsportsmanlike, however, I bet Laine will want a Bridge deal. so after he gets his 50 goals, which he will ., he can cash in.

5.) 15 Mar 2019 18:37:57
I think of Laine signed an offer sheet where the Jets get 4 firsts, I think they might just let him go. That said, a bridge deal is the most likely outcome.

6.) 15 Mar 2019 19:20:05
Uh, I would agree that he is overshadowed by Wheeler. But getting rod of him now, with low value would not be a good decision. He can always bounce back.

7.) 15 Mar 2019 19:20:44
Let's not forget that up until recently, bridge deals were what all up and coming star players signed exiting their entry level deals. Could work out in the Jets favour if they can get him signed for a few years at a really good cap hit, and then sign him long term to really big bucks in a few years when they've had some other big contracts come off the books (Kulilkov for sure. maybe Buff? )

8.) 15 Mar 2019 20:13:32
The Jets will try to lock Laine up for 8 years but if they sign him to a 2 year bridge deal it gives the Jets time to see how much they want to budget for him in the future. They will match any offer sheet.



23 Feb 2019 21:43:58
Incase if you haven't heard Paniran has Vancouver as one of the teams he's willing to accept a trade too and talk to in the offseason. A Paniran-Pettersson-Boeser line would be absolutely disgusting. Doubt they'll trade for him but a offseason move makes way to much sense also Bob could go there also. Right now I believe Florida and The Rangers are the front runners but I believe the Canucks are quietly in the race

Kadri is 2x as good as Danault.

25 Apr 2019 00:25:55
Well Montreal, Arizona ( imo he’s better than Derek Stephan ) And Ottawa. Don’t even argue Jesper Koteniemi is better because he’s not. He will be but he’s not. Drouin is a winger forced to play C and Danult is not better even tho he had 6 more points Kadri brings more to the game aside from 2 way play he’s a dirty player that gives cheap shots to get into the other teams head. A player that any successful team needs. He’s also a consistent 30 goal guy when given top 6 minutes. Domi is better but I consider him a winger even tho he spent time at Center.

Drouin-Kadri-Domi would be Montreal’s 1st line.

It’s rather unlikely that steel will be as good/ Better then Kadri obviously he’s developing good and it is possible that’s why I said he “ might “ be a 1c in Anaheim.
