So 3 things have been linked between the Sabres-Canadians per ((((Darren Dreger ))))1. The Canadians are extremely interested in O'Rielly and the Sabres want the 3rd overall back.

2. The Sabres are the front runners for Max Pacioretty?


Sabres- O'Rielly, Alex Nylander and 1st 2019 ( top 3 protected )

Montreal- Max Pacioretty and 3rd overall


- Alex Nylander has fallen out of favour in buffalo and probably need a change of scenery, Zandina brings an Elite winger for Eichel and Pacioretty is likely a Kane replacement who'd likely resign if wanted.

-Montreal gets one of the best 2way c in the nhl and fills the 1c hole well, Nylander has tons of talent and could excel in a new system and a potential top 10 pick next year.

Lmfao and you were laughing when I posted the 4th and a 3rd for the 3rd lol. dude this is 10 times worst your basically giving patches for O'Reilly then an unproven prospect and what will prob be a mid to late pick for the 3rd overall. no chance has bite on this trash.

2.) 22 Jun 2018 12:35:34
Yeah because O’Rielly isn’t 10x as good as patches ( also isn’t a top 15 C in the NHL ) and yah man Buffalo will go from dead last to a contender you’re right. Don’t comment on posts if you have nothing to contribute.

3.) 22 Jun 2018 13:43:53
My personal opinion (Habs fan here) Is that MTL stays away from O'Rielly, He's a good center but my problem with him is Buffalo will be asking way too much to get him. The trade is alright but I just don't see O'Rielly as a 1C and for Patch and 3rd OVA i'd rather a proven 1C with a young Proven player in this trade there is too many question marks for the habs to consider. Also Buf could go from really bad to just in playoffs just look at COL this year it's not like it hasn't happened before.

4.) 22 Jun 2018 22:23:02
That’s a decent offer nylander is projected to be better then his brother.

5.) 22 Jun 2018 23:25:09
O'rielly is not 10 times better than patches lmfao what on earth do you smoke when you value players? O'Reilly had 3 60+ point seasons the best being 64 while patches had at least 5 60+ point seasons 2 of which he reached 67. if anything patches is worth more because of that plus his 4.65 million contract. and buffalo getting dahlin instantly makes them better than a lotto pick and if this deal went through they'd have another proven top 6 winger in patches and whoever they draft with 3rd overall would also be a top 6 guy making them even better yet so yeah they'd at least be fighting for a playoff spot this making montreal the clear loser of this deal genius.

I'm not a habs fan but if I was I'd be appalled at the thought of this at it would be right up there with that trashy Hoffman trade Dorian made.

I can't believe I'm defending the hand on this but get off the crack pipe vbbvbb your posts are atrocious best and pathetic at worst. it's a very good thing you don't run a teams actually management team as your be fired after your 1st couple trades.

Willliam Nylanders sophomore season as a leaf

81GP 22G 39A 61P ( NHL )

Alexander Nylanders sophomore season as a Sabre
Note- still not an NHLer playing 3rd line in the AHL

NHL 3GP 1G 0A 1P AHL stats- 51GP 8G 22A

Not sure how you think he’ll be better then Willam. William out produced his AHL numbers while in the NHL.

7.) 23 Jun 2018 07:26:59
Whatever ram smokes makes him value wingers on rental contracts higher than a centerman with term, good for him. he also thinks bobby ryan has positive value, probably thinks craig anderson does too.

8.) 23 Jun 2018 19:00:04
no no no Nylander is a complete bust and buffalo will be good if we give them a ll that and they draft dahlin so 2019 first will be low heck no.



19 Jun 2018 17:54:32
Ottawa: Mark Stone

Calargry: Sam Bennet, Jusso Valimaki And Tyler Parsons

Ottawa- gets young nhl player who at worst is a solid 3c but has potential to develope into an upper tier 2c. A top defender prospect and a top goalie prospect. + they trade him outside of the conference

Calargry-it's only a matter of time before Stone asks for a trade so Calargry has leverage but they still need to put bid every other team. Stone brings in exactly what they need in an Elite RW to Compliment Guadreau and Mohnahan.


1.) 19 Jun 2018 18:32:13
The fact you spelt Calgary wrong just is unsettling.

2.) 19 Jun 2018 18:32:41
As for the trade Ottawa rejects.

3.) 19 Jun 2018 19:25:34
Lol probably should’ve checked the Spelling and isn’t Stone exactly what they’re looking for why would they reject.

4.) 19 Jun 2018 19:40:36
Big no from ottawa.

5.) 19 Jun 2018 21:57:48
If they trade Karlsson which I think they will and should, I think Stone should get the C in Ottawa. One of the most undervalued players in the league.

6.) 20 Jun 2018 00:35:14
Yup you think Stone is willing to stay long term? Highly don’t he’s willing to commit in Ottawa.

7.) 20 Jun 2018 00:38:04
Yes that’s what calgary needs but Ottawa doesn’t want that for a return!

8.) 20 Jun 2018 15:41:41
I thought pending UFAs don’t get that much? As you stated above^.



19 Jun 2018 01:58:22
Ottawa: Erik Karlsson

Colorado: Connor Timmons, 17th overall and Ottawa's 2019 1st

Ottawa- gets there pick back next year so they can push forward with a full rebuild and Connor Timmons looks like he is going to be the steal of the draft he took the heaviest work load on the U20 Canadian World Junior team and looked better then Makar. Colorado probably dosent want to trade him but in order to get the best dman in the NHL that's probably the price

Colorado- they have cap space to resign Karlsson and they looked good already in the playoffs Karlsson could but then over the top.


Edmonton: Lucic and 10th overall

Ottawa: Hoffman



1.) 19 Jun 2018 06:20:07
Lol who said Hoffman has that much value anymore nah.

2.) 19 Jun 2018 06:20:28
Could get for better deal I bet Ottawa has zero leverage he’s got to go.

3.) 19 Jun 2018 14:40:47
i'd do the karlsson deal, though i'm sure they could get more?

4.) 19 Jun 2018 15:07:27
McJesus I’ll start off by saying Hoffman was traded for dirt but that trade would rid EDM of a hideous contract while giving them a consistent 25 goal scorer. This would’ve helped EDM Lucic needs to go and he’ll be hard to move.

New York Islanders: John Tavares

Saint Louis Blues: Conditional pick 3rd round pick * 2019

* Becomes a 1st round 2019 if Tavares signs with the Blues.

Saint Louis is in desperate need for a 1st line Center and Tavares would turn them from a mediocre team to a cup contender. New York Islanders essentially get a free pick.


1.) 07 Jun 2018 14:45:44
Wow lol. at least my Tavares to sens rumor was respectable. a 3rd might get them his jock strap but that's it. and a late 1st is nowhere near enough.

2.) 07 Jun 2018 15:43:50
Nothing you post is respectable.

3.) 07 Jun 2018 16:19:16
This is the dumbest post iv seen in a while and that says a lot. JT for a 3rd lmao.

4.) 07 Jun 2018 16:38:50
Gonna take a lot more than that jus to get the rights to sign him, and that's a huge gamble. As much as I like Tavares, i'm not sure parting with assets, for a 1 in probably 10 chance is going to be worth it.

5.) 07 Jun 2018 21:15:24
This post is just a reaction to what people have been posting UFA rights are worthless guys there is no was a team will send a 1st round pick for a player they can get for free.

Would you rather pay 1 million dollars for a house right now? Or get it for free a month later?

John Tavares is a great player but why give up assets for something you can get for free and may lose for nothing. I doubt a team would be willing to pay a 1st honestly you guys extremely overrate the rights of UFA.

6.) 09 Jun 2018 11:48:53
It's just for his rights. Giving up a mid pick for an extra few weeks to try and convince a player like that to sign to your team could be worth it. That's all. It's not a for sure thing he would sign there.
And ya, Rambone, You post the most crazy Sens biased posts ever. Not one to call someone out there man.



25 May 2018 02:59:03
So apparently the Nashville Predators are actively shoping deffensman PK Subban. This is shocking considering the Predators have been so successful.

PK Subban ( 29 ) is native of Toronto, Ontario and spent the previous 9 seasons between Nashville and the Montreal Canadians. During the 2012-2013 a lockout shortened season PK Subban established him self as an elite defender by winning the Norris trophy as the leagues top defender.

2017-2018 statistics

82GP 16G 43A 59P 18+/-

Possible reason to trade

1. He wore out his welcome in the dressing room

2. The predators are trying to get cap to make a push for Tavares

Perhaps the team with the biggest need for a number 1 RHD is Toronto and David Poile has a reputation of of making blockbuster trades.

My offer as a leafs fan.

Toronto: William Nylander, Timothy Liljegren and 25th overall

Nashville: PK Subban and Nick Bonino

Toronto: The Leafs desperately need a Franchise dman and Subban is that. He's a hometown boy and would quickly become a fan favourite. He loves the big markets. Nick Bonino fill the 3c void. To get Tavares they'll need to trade 1 of Bonino/Turris or Johanson

Nashville: the Predators gain cap space to make a push for Tavares well getting back a first line winger to upgrade Avidsson, a potential replacement for subban and a pick bath in this years draft.

Value wise this probably favours the preds but no team would give more.


1.) 25 May 2018 05:01:08
I think it’s too much for Subban, I like Subban and everything but if the leafs are to give up that package I’d sooner they go after drew doughty, Ekblad, Hamilton or even Ristolainen. Not that I think those guys are available. Don’t forget the rebuild is not quite done yet, too early to start trading away youth, especially core youth players. I’d like to see what liljegren can do before they trade him. Also good as PK is I wouldn’t say he’s a “franchise player”.

2.) 25 May 2018 05:08:26
Pk talked mad rubbish about Toronto when he was drafted by Montreal. He won't be welcomed here. And he's been described as an issue in the dressing room, so a instant pass from toronto.

3.) 25 May 2018 12:32:04
I would not touch Hamilton but the other 3 d listed are nice and any elite dman would be welcomed in Toronto.

4.) 25 May 2018 15:03:06
Wouldn’t pay that much for subban. Between a ‘promote me before a team’ attitude and a massive salary, I don’t see a fit. Leafs have built a pretty close knit team of talented young players that they need to sign and hope to sign a bit below market value to keep it all together. Bringing in a big personality/ ego with a massive contract could really mess with that structure and hierarchy. It’s hard to ask a guy like marner or Matthews to take less than they’re worth after what they have done for you since being drafted when you’re willing to give assets and pay that kind of salary to a guy that hasn’t done anything for you.

Ottawa: Hoffman and Ottawa's 5th round pick 2020 + a no name prospect

San Jose: Boedker and San Jose 5th round pick 2020 + a no name prospect

Confirmed trade

Rambo? Where is the 1st round pick and elite prospect.

Trades like this show how little we know about the nhl this trade wasn't to maximize value for the rebuild it was a statement about there commitment to make Ottawa a better organization and to possibly resign Karlsson


1.) 19 Jun 2018 16:05:13
Now he's gone to florida lol.

2.) 19 Jun 2018 16:12:55
Hopefully by getting Hoffman Florida won't want pacioretty now.

3.) 20 Jun 2018 04:44:12
Not that I'd mind a pacioretty trade just wouldn't really want to play against him that often and I really don't want bjustad.

4.) 20 Jun 2018 06:10:42
Doubt Bjustad would be the main piece back anyway also it’s only one season.

5.) 20 Jun 2018 14:10:33
I think florida would be a place where he would have resigned but I guess overall it doesn't matter where he goes if they get back a decent return. florida would have almost had to give up bjusgstad if they were indeed interested because they didn't have much else that habs would have wanted that they would have been willing to give up. If not I guess matheson or their 1st pick might have done it too.

6.) 20 Jun 2018 16:15:53
I’d think the 1st round pick is more logical.

7.) 20 Jun 2018 16:55:22
Yeah probably but I doubt there is any chance of them trading that after the picks they traded for hoffman.

8.) 23 Jun 2018 19:00:16
Wonder if Rambone admits he was so wrong on Hoffmans value.
Reminds me of that STL homer Colt with Shattenkirk.



19 May 2018 23:34:06
This is a post comparing Jake Gardiner of the Toronto Maple Leafs to Justin Faulk of the Carolina Hurricanes.

Offensive Production for the 2017-2018 season

Jake Gardiner- 82GP 5G 47A 52P TOI 22:32 TOI/PP 2:04

Justin Faulk- 78GP 8G 23A 31P TOI 22:16 TOI/PP 2:56

Offensive Production for the 2016-2017 season

Jake Gardiner-82GP 9G 34A 43P +26

Justin Faulk- 75GP 17G 20A 37P -18

As you can see statistically Gardiner is the superior player offensively and Faulk is regressing while Gardiner is improving. Faulk has the Supirior goal scoring ability but his stats are inflated due to supirior exposure to the top PP compared to Gardiner.

Defensive statistics

Gardiner- +9

Faulk- -26

Jake Gardiner proves to be the superior defensive dman by far according to advanced statistics. I'll give you guys a link to compare the two. Please visit Hockeyrefernce.com to view advanced statistics.

So according to statistics Jake Gardiner is a top pairing dman and is far superior to Faulk. Now I'm sure if someone attempts to argue they'll bring up points such as "+- is a team stat" " Toronto is much Better then Carolina " "advanced stats are overrated ". But statistics prove that the only thing Faulk is better at is scoring on the PP. also Faulk was sheltered under a stud top line of Slavin and Pesce. While Gardiner was started mostly in the D Zone. Also his D partner Hanfin is much superior then Zaitsev.


1.) 20 May 2018 00:33:55
I’m not one for it, but I’d look at HERO/ WAR charts for defensive stats. Idk what they are on either, but they provide a much clearer defensive idea of a player than plus minus, imo.

However, I do agree that Gardiner is given a lot of slack and has recieved hugely negative feedback for what was, altogether, a rather impressive season for him. Don’t take me wrong, I’m not a ‘Jake Gardiner fan’, I’d prefer him to be traded, but the only reason for that is because Torontos defensive core is literally full of players like him, Dermott, Zaitsev, Rielly, etc. But people, and especially Leaf fans treat him he's like worth a meh pick and a couple of roster throwaway because of his poor play in game seven. Overall, for his seasons play, he is worth a pretty good amount - and teams in dire need of PP dmen (Edmonton, Montreal, Detroit, Rangers, Chicago, Vancouver) could certainly use him and may give up a decent amount for him.

2.) 20 May 2018 01:27:00
So I took a look at these advanced stats:
Hits: Faulk (77 more)
Blocks: Gardiner (13 more)
Takeaways: Faulk (44 more)
Giveaways: Faulk (39 less)
Possession stats:
Corsi: Faulk (5% better)
Fenwick: Faulk (4.6% better)
Shots: Faulk (78 more)
Shooting %: Equal

Based on this I’m not sure what you mean Gardiner is superior defensively. I agree Gardiner is far and away better offensively. But defensively Faulk shows he’s a very good d man and Gardiner is average if not below.

3.) 20 May 2018 02:08:11
I agree Hero charts are much better then +- but I just didn’t wanna type out all those stats lol that’s why I gave a suggested link.

4.) 20 May 2018 12:31:12
Shots, hits aren’t really defensive numbers but i didn’t think the such close stats meant much. ( corsi and fenwick ) Also didn’t really look at the Takeaway/ giveaway ratio that’s Gardiners biggest fault. Gardiner is still the better dman. Yup would you like to chip in it seems like you have a lot to say.

5.) 21 May 2018 00:45:00
Overall I would agree that gardiner is slightly better I've been saying faulk is overrated for years.

6.) 24 May 2018 16:27:03
I don’t think there’s a huge difference either way besides the obvious lefty/ righty thing. But on this site, there’s so many people talk about Faulk like he’s a stud and Gardiner gets a tough go. I think the truth is somewhere in the middle. They’re both probably 3rd men on a good squad. 2nd on an average one.



27 Apr 2018 02:12:35
Toronto: Connor Brown, Jeramy Bracco, 2019 2nd and 21st overall

Calargry: Mark Girodano

Leafs: get a reliable 1d stop gap until one is drafted

Calargry: shakes up their roster, gets a good top 9 Forward to play with Guadreau and Mohnahan, a high potential prospect compared to Johnny Guadreau, a 2nd next year back and a 1st pick in this years


1.) 27 Apr 2018 18:00:10
Too much for an old Gio.

2.) 30 Apr 2018 11:15:01
So you guys are telling me you'd be okay as leafs fan to give up that much for 34 year old Gio? That would be worse then the Weber trade omg.



19 Jul 2016 06:24:55
Is it just me or is Kyle Connor overrated by the latest top 50 prospects he was ranked 4th behind Mathews, Laine and Dylan Strome.

I mean he is a good prospect he probably deserved to win the Hoby Baker award but do you guys seriously think he should be ranked ahead of guys like Mitch Marner, Jesse Puljujjarvi, Ivan Provonov, William Nylander and Matt Murray.


1.) 19 Jul 2016 12:43:24
I think it is slightly overrated. I would have him somewhere in the 7-10 range.

2.) 19 Jul 2016 15:48:57
With rookies you never know. usually it depends on his line mates, staying healthy and the confidence his coach has in him to use him on the power play, penalty killing, over time and minutes of play game. Age and experience also plays a factor. A 20 year old is usually better prepared than an 18 year old. Look at Chicago last year. But great skill usually rises to the top.

3.) 19 Jul 2016 16:14:11
Yah 7-10 seems good to me.

4.) 19 Jul 2016 20:32:36
I can't believe all you guys think Kyle Connor is a better prospect then Jesse Pulj. That's pretty sad.



03 Jul 2016 01:29:39
Polak resigns with Leafs. Pretty good signing he will be a mentor for the young guys and bring a physical presence on the blue line it's a 1 year deal so it can't be a bad signing. They may be able to acquire a pick at the deadline. All in all I'm just glad they didn't go out and sign Kris Russel to a ridiculous contract.

Wow you’re a train wreck man you litterly know nothing you are talking about Dahlins production in the “KHL” when he never played a game there.

He was the most trusted player defensively at the World Cup for team Canada was on the top PK that says something. It may look bad because the Sabres are horrible.

I agree with Unbiased Jim thinking about it more he Should get a little bit more then Duchene got. O’Riellys 2way ability are up there with Bergeron and Kopitar.

That’s not even close for O’Rielly. He should bring back a package similar to Dougie Hamilton.

Huge no from buffalo if you want Dahlin or Connor McDavid it’ll take.

Dahlin or McDavid for Karlsson, Tkachuk, Stone, Chabot, White and Ryan ( cap dump )

I’m Implying Dahlin=McDavid

Ottawa could do a full rebuild around Dahlin.
