It's no secret Anaheim needs a shake up and Getzlaf is a good trade option he's still a PPG 1C in the right situation and a two way beast. I'd rather have him then Monahan in the playoffs.

Calgary: Ryan Getzlaf ( 1.25 million retained )

Anaheim: Mark Stone ( Cap ), Sam Bennet And 1st 2019

Calgary- gets a 1c to play in the 2C role for a playoff push and a few more seasons.

Anaheim- Gets two solid pieces for a shakeup they desperately need.

PS- Getzlaf hasn't lost a step Anaheim is just terrible and needs a shake up


1.) 16 Feb 2019 05:34:25
Micheal Stone whoops.

2.) 16 Feb 2019 05:45:51
1. Michael Stone not Mark
2. Not enough for Getzlaf
3. No need for Getzlaf
4. Anaheim wouldn't trade their captain to a rivalry team

3.) 16 Feb 2019 14:43:07
4 is the only one I agree with. He’s getting old and has a big contract yes he’s still real good but his value is low I think this is an offer Anaheim looks at for sure. Maybe because is a riveraly team the ask for a peice like Dubé.

4.) 16 Feb 2019 17:41:24
No this is a very easy no from ducks .

5.) 16 Feb 2019 21:26:35
Anaheim has cap issues and wouldn’t want to retain salary for one thing. The return is less than stellar as well. Stone has 11 games to his credit this year and is a bottom pairing defenseman. Bennett is not a top 6 player, so Ducks would have a huge hole to fill on that 1st line. Besides all this, losing their captain leaves them without an adequate leader to guide the team through its turnaround.

6.) 17 Feb 2019 14:04:28
Trade our Tkachuk for Ottawa’s Dzingel, a 2nd this year and a steady left hand D



14 Feb 2019 03:35:11
Florida is apparently the front runners for Bob and Paniran. If they were to bring in Paniran it is speculated they'd trade Hoffman. Most likely they visit this In the off-season but they could want the opportunity to pursuade them with an extra year.

Florida: Hoffman, Brassard, Hepponemi ,Remier And 2nd 2019

Columbus: Paniran And Brobovsky

Columbus- get a near near equal replacement with an extra year and potential to resign in Hoffman. Reimer could be a 1B in Columbus. Brassard fills a 3C role and helps with the playoff push and Hepponemi brings in a dynamic prospect in their system whom has top 6 potential.

Florida: gets two elite players who happen to be very close to each other. They both want to test FA but maybe a change of scenery would change their mind.


1.) 14 Feb 2019 05:31:12
Would definitely include a first.

2.) 14 Feb 2019 05:50:43
Maybe swap out hepponeimi for borgstrom?

3.) 14 Feb 2019 13:34:22
Heponiemi is better then Borgstrom so you think Florida is giving too much in this trade Habby?

4.) 14 Feb 2019 15:06:08
Borgstrom is already showing he can play in the nhl. He's a sure thing bud. Heppo is like 150lbs soaking wet and is still a wildcard.

5.) 14 Feb 2019 15:07:29
Heponiemi has never played a game in the NHL how exactly is he already better than Borgstrom? Serious question just wondering, i think Borgstrom is nasty from his college highlights but who i don't know.



12 Feb 2019 21:05:59
Rumour has it that LA is looking at trading Kovy and he is willing to waive his NMC. If you've watched him you can tell he's still a very talented player and surprisingly he can still skate I believe he can be a near PPG player in the right situation.

Boston: David Backas And 1st 2019

LA: Ilya Kovlachuk

Boston- Gets takes a waiver on a player who is clearly still and offensive threat and can contribute greatly on the PP but just hasn't fit into LA's system and they rid them selves of Backas's contract.

LA- Gets a 1st round pick for compensation of the the cap dump in Backas. I feel without Backas he could probably return a 3rd but Boston doesn't have the cap space.


1.) 12 Feb 2019 21:32:12
I'd rather have Backes come playoff time. grit and toughness come playoff time. Kovalchucks time has passed., he is horrible on the back check, and now that his 40 to 50 goal seasons are over, he jus can't justify being a top 6 anymore.
Of course if he only had one year left on deal, he'd more valuable., but with 2 years left, he's just not the same guy he was, when he left for KHL all those years ago.

2.) 12 Feb 2019 22:07:56
Oh boy, there is 0 incentive for LA wanting Backes even if they can get a late 1st back.

No from LA.

3.) 12 Feb 2019 22:36:11
I can’t see LA taking a $6M cap hit just for a 1st. Even if Kovalchuk is available, LA is looking to rebuild. Picks, prospects, and cap space. Not another boat anchor contract. They would be better off just keeping Kovalchuk.

4.) 13 Feb 2019 03:28:44
Sosa I don’t think you understand how good he really is. If you watch him he has even better hands then before and can still skate. Imo he hasn’t even Lost a step LA is just the worst possible fit.

5.) 13 Feb 2019 05:40:29
Vb. I'll take your word for it., but I'm still taking a pass.
If all he had was this year on a contract, sure. but I wouldn't want his last 2 years.

6.) 13 Feb 2019 14:40:40
Backas is also signed for the same amount and his a solid AHL player but he’s not a top 9 NHLer anymore he provides absolutely nothing besides Grit which is dying in the nhl. He’s slow and has lost his offensive touch 6 million for a practically useless player.

7.) 13 Feb 2019 17:16:59
His last name is BackEs for the love of god you clearly don't have a clue what you're talking about if you can't spell their name right. he's not an AHLer he has a place in this league but he is overpaid yes.

8.) 14 Feb 2019 00:49:59
So the fact that I miss an E in his last name tarnishes my credibility and show that “ no clue about what I’m talking about” hmm, that makes total sense. Valid points are obviously invalid when a grammatical error takes place. You’re painfully unintelligent. Disagreeing with my opinion is fine obviously but the fact you sincerely believe that a single letter is a factor of credibility is insane.



03 Feb 2019 00:42:08
Purpose from Edmonton POV- Dumping Lucic and bringing in a dman to play on the top PP.

Purpose from Rangers POV- getting a high potential prospect

Rangers: Kevin Shanttenkurk

Edmonton: Milan Lucic and Jesse Puljujarvi


1.) 03 Feb 2019 04:39:33
The new Gm of the oilers will be so desperate to rid himself of lucic the player coming back won't even have to be shattenkirk quality. I don't feel the rangers even think about this even with puljujarvi added.

2.) 03 Feb 2019 05:41:45
Are we pretending Shattenkirk isn’t a burden? He’s bottom pair on a bottom third team making 6 and a half mill. He’s not as bad as Lucic but he’s not leagues better or much of a quality asset coming back.

3.) 03 Feb 2019 06:07:20
He hasn't been good either but his contract is two years shorter then lucic. That alone would probably be incentive enough ATM, at least there could potentially be some cap space in 3 years instead of 5. Plus shattenkirk IMO would help the oilers more then lucic will. Even as a bottom pair guy who can still boost a power play.

4.) 03 Feb 2019 14:56:18
I think Shatenkurk has negative value imo but not even close to as much as Lucic. I think rangers definitely take it if Edm adds there 1st and rangers add there 2nd.



18 Dec 2018 22:12:25
Andre Burakovsky has been a healthy scratch and the Capitals are looking to trade him. The asking price is thought to be a speedy veteran forward that can play up and down the lineup and they are not looking for picks or prospects. This is according to the Washington Post

This came to mind I believe it'd be mutually beneficial for both organizations.

Washington: Andre Burakovsky

Montreal: Paul Byron

Washington- Gets exactly what they're asking for he could fit anywhere in the lineup and plays with Heart.

Montreal- they get the younger player with more potential who needs a change of scenery. Byron is good but Montreal isn't competing ( in the long haul ) so a younger player like Burakovsky can pay off long term and even has potential to make an impact as soon as the change of scenery.


1.) 18 Dec 2018 23:31:51
Byron is also locked up for a few years and burakovsky is not let's say he comes to montreal and starts showing that potential we then have to pay him a bigger contract then byron. Then who is to say with his history of being inconsistent comes back next year and scores 35 points for the year and is getting paid 5mil.

If I'm the habs if I can't get him for hudon and a prospect or something along those lines I'm not even listening. I'm sure Washington would like to add some cap room this way they free up over 2 mil. Adding burakovsky for byron doesn't really improve the team right now and it only possibly helps it in the future that's not good enough for me.

2.) 19 Dec 2018 00:55:34
Deal from both teams.

3.) 19 Dec 2018 01:21:14
Well first of all that’s false, Washington is not looking to trade him. They are listening to offers aka doing their due dilligence, they are not shopping him.

But anyways for the trade I’d say no from Washington based on the age and skill difference between the players. Caps can get better offer imo.

4.) 19 Dec 2018 03:11:18
Its interesting . pretty decent VB. I'm going to agree with Habby on this though. If I was more of a gambler, I'd be all over it .

5.) 19 Dec 2018 10:57:45
Actually you’re wrong mcjesus he is actively being shopped and they’re trying to get rid of him before the trade freez for the holidays. Soooooo uummmm. what?

What would the oilers be willing to add to Lucic to take on Kovlachuk just curious? Nurse? Puljujarvi And a 1st? Bouchard?


1.) 22 Feb 2019 05:28:40
I wouldn't add any of those young players for a 35 year old who is clearly on the decline.



05 Feb 2019 20:50:10
If Mathews signed for 11.6 just imagine what Marner is going to get. Someone is going to need to go. I hope it's Mathews. Marner is the better player and will be compensated so.


1.) 05 Feb 2019 21:33:46
lol what?

2.) 05 Feb 2019 21:44:07
I don't think marner will get as much but he's got to get 10mil at least.

3.) 05 Feb 2019 21:57:24
Marner make more than Mathews? I really don't think that is a thing.

4.) 05 Feb 2019 22:14:29
Toronto has 8 mil to sign, Marner, Kappanen, Johnson And Gardiner.

5.) 05 Feb 2019 22:36:04
It wouldn't surprise me if Marner starts really high and hopes to close near Matthews. From what Leafs' fans say, Marner is the better player. I could see Marner closing say between 10.5 and 11.5 over the same 5 years, so that he can get to UFA asap and move on to where he wants to play.

6.) 06 Feb 2019 02:17:21
I finally agree with you VB! Lol.

7.) 06 Feb 2019 02:59:38
My god no they wouldn't sign them to both 5 year deals would they? marner has got to be at least 6 years. Don't want them both wanting new contracts the same year.

8.) 06 Feb 2019 03:04:58
Also joe he would get to ufa the fastest on a 4 year deal.

9.) 06 Feb 2019 03:05:38
I could see a 3 year deal though from the team pov.

10.) 06 Feb 2019 03:42:01
Why does Marner not want to play in Toronto Joe?

11.) 06 Feb 2019 13:51:01
Marner was born and raised in Toronto and loved by the fans. I don’t see any possible way he doesn’t retire as a leaf.

12.) 06 Feb 2019 14:31:06
Joe apparently has the inside scoop Vbb’s. Marner must want to play in Winnipeg where the weather is much nicer and they have a thriving fan base from all the cups they’ve won.

13.) 06 Feb 2019 14:44:50
Habby, I think there is zero chance Marner would sign a 3 year deal. That would leave him with no contact or money when the current CBA ends. He'll want a contract that carries past that and pays him in case of a lockout.

14.) 06 Feb 2019 14:47:10
Leafs17, it's just a feeling I have. Why would you stay in Toronto when you could go and play hockey for the same or more money in the sun belt?

15.) 06 Feb 2019 19:42:51
@joe why did wheeler sign a long term deal to stay in winnipeg? I will say this though marners agent has already started the public warfare with leafs management so although I think marner wants to stay in toronto he's going to get paid. Probably on par with what Matthews got maybe more if he signs a longer deal. Could be in the 6 or 7 times 12mil range.

16.) 06 Feb 2019 22:16:27
@Habby, Wheeler loves it in Winnipeg and is the captain of the team and True North has always let him know how valuable he is to the team.

With Marner, yes he is from the area, but when the Leafs are telling him he needs to keep his wage demands down while over paying 3 other players. I don't know, money may do the talking is all I'm saying.

Now today Marner's agent comes out and makes a public statement that the Leafs are lowballing him. It could be trouble.

17.) 06 Feb 2019 23:23:29
Wheeler loves it in Winnipeg but Marner is going to want out? Good one Joe. Have you seen that kids face when he’s out there? He’s always smiling ear to ear. The only reason you hear anything about what Marner’s agent said is because it’s Toronto media, Winnipeg just doesn’t get the coverage. Maybe it’s all made up what the agent said Joe, just like the rumors that Tavares was offered more by other teams. Stop thinking the world farts rainbows over Winnipeg and rubbishs on everyone else. Start judging players by their talent, not the jersey they wear.

18.) 07 Feb 2019 02:28:44
I just said it was a feeling I had, not that I knew it was going to happen. Don't freak out. But you have to admit Marner's agent pulling out the big guns right off the bat doesn't sound encouraging for Leaf fans.

19.) 07 Feb 2019 06:07:39
Yeah based on how this contract negotiation pans out I can see where your going with this joe. Money can make people do strange things. i think they will get a deal done but it's really not starting out on the good foot.

20.) 07 Feb 2019 06:52:30
No it definitely sounds like Marner’s agent means business and he will get paid. He deserves to get paid. So do you think Laine is headed for the sunshine state ASAP? Some of you guys try to make it a bad thing that the leafs have too much talent.

21.) 07 Feb 2019 16:05:15
It has nothing to do with talent or not for me. just discussing things that are being talked about on the sports websites. I also think it's funny how some leaf fans thought at the start of the season that they were going to get matthews and marner signed to 8 year contracts for about 16 million per combined.

22.) 07 Feb 2019 17:16:49
To be fair Habby that was before Marner put up the kind of numbers he has this season. I would think he has exceeded even the highest expectations. I would have pegged Matthews signing for something between Eichel and McDavid's number -- maybe even bang-on the $11 mln Tavares signed for; just would have figured it would be for a longer term than 5 years.

23.) 07 Feb 2019 17:20:58
I wasn’t one of those leaf fans habby. Marner playing with Tavares was etched in stone before the season started and I knew that was going to take Marner to another level. There’s no doubt the leafs are in tight with the cap and may lose players along the way. If they get picks for the players they lose, the system should be full of cheaper players. The leafs paid big for Matthews and we all knew they would. If they don’t win the cup in the next 5 years while everyone is locked in, they don’t deserve it.

24.) 07 Feb 2019 18:24:19
No I didn't mean any of you guys made those predictions.



03 Feb 2019 19:03:15
Just curious Leafs fans would you consider something around Mathews for Jones if Marner asks for 11 million+ long term? I'd rather have Marner then Mathews but I feel like Marner being the home town boy would take a discount.


1.) 04 Feb 2019 07:07:56
Classic VB.

2.) 04 Feb 2019 11:24:39
I really don't care whose coming back unless its mcdavid (in which case Toronto obv adds), i ain't trading matthews. He was and is this franchises saviour, Tavares, Marner, etc. doesn’t change that.

3.) 04 Feb 2019 15:10:35
Classic BJ providing absolutely zero incite.



23 Jan 2019 01:33:02
Do you guys think Rantanen is the real deal or a product of Mackinnon? When I mean real deal I'm talking constant 90+ point player like Kuch or Kane in the near future.


1.) 23 Jan 2019 04:13:11
Yeah he's the real deal. The rantanen/ mackinnon thing is the same as marner/ tavares do you think marner is the real deal?

2.) 23 Jan 2019 04:17:07
Also kucherov and Kane have only had 1 90 point season each.

3.) 23 Jan 2019 04:20:38
No surprise why MacKinnon is having his best seasons of his career. No different than Panarin and Kane.

4.) 23 Jan 2019 04:21:42
Well I think Marner is better then Tavares but thanks I hope so just picked him up along with Hischer for Malkin, Taresanko And Hoaltby in my 6 player keeper league.

5.) 23 Jan 2019 12:09:49
Oh yeah. I think mikko is the real deal. With or without MacK he's an 80+ point guy imo.

6.) 23 Jan 2019 17:41:00
@Habby2: Yeah and we're all in high doubt either will ever reach 90 again, eh.

7.) 23 Jan 2019 18:36:06
@the triplets no I'm pretty sure they both will again this year. Just pointing out that neither of them are constantly getting 90 points a year yet. You know like all those years we heard about jvr being a consistent 30 goal player when up to that point he had only done it once. or pacioretty being a 40 goal man when he never hit that mark.

8.) 25 Jan 2019 15:26:42
I get what you're saying but Kuch and Kane are on a whole different level than Pacioretty/ JVR. Both have proven to be among the very best in the world and apart from injuries or a league-wide scoring recession, I don't see either of them not getting 90+ in the next half decade. Like. Kuch has 78 at the All-Star-Break haha.

9.) 26 Jan 2019 05:51:46
Yep they are two of the best offensive players in the league stop playing fortnite and be quicker with your replys lol.



08 Jan 2019 02:35:28
Positional value aside who is the better player?

Kappo Kakko or Jack Hughes?

Imo Hughes is overrated. Yes he tares up the USHL but that's basically another BCHL he is obviously going to be a very good player i don't see him being a Mathews/Eichel esq player. I see him like a Antemi Panairan type player. Kappo Kakko seems like a faster Blake Wheeler with a better shot. I think he'll be an elite player in NHL.


1.) 08 Jan 2019 05:48:26
Kappo gained ground on him during the wjc but he didn't catch him. hughes was playing hurt at the world juniors and still played good. I actually like them both and I've been pumping kakkos tires for a year now but as it stands hughes is still number 1 but it's getting closer.

2.) 09 Jan 2019 04:07:33
Probably going to be Hughes, however, what concerns me, no Canadian. I think its time Hockey Canada did some changes. everyone is catching up, and won't be long we will be surpassed.

3.) 09 Jan 2019 14:31:03
Canada is still miles ahead. They didn’t have any one potentially going 1st overall last year either. The 1st round will be dominated by Canadians as usual and next year Canada has Lafreniere and Byfield.

4.) 09 Jan 2019 16:14:20
Although canada is still top of the food chain a lot of countries with a much smaller player base are getting closer. Also I would argue actual top end talent is probably even closer. With the millions of dollars hockey canada brings in every year it might be wise to start investing some of that for the future by allowing kids to sign up for minor hockey free of charge.
