With a new GM it seems like Carolina is going to make some moves and Faulk could be had he'd be a great fit on the oilers top pp

Option 1

Edmonton: Jesse Puljujarvi and Tyler Benson

Carolina: Justin Faulk

Edmonton: gets a dynamic presence on the top PP and could potentially thrive sheltered under a defensive minded Larsson paired with Nurse or Reunite him with Sekera.

Carolina: while i don't like to use the term bust it does not look like Jesse Puljujarvi will reach his potential of being a game changer like Blake Wheeler. He could still be a very effective top 6 player and has a small chance of blowing up with Aho with prior chemistry.

Option 2

Edmonton: Milan Lucic*, Jesse Puljujarvi and 10th overall

Carolina: Justin Faulk, Justin Willams and 42nd overall

* hopefully Lucic will waive his MNTC if he feels unwanted in Edmonton

Edmonton: rids then selves of a useless atrocious contract while getting a top 4 dman and a great presance in Williams who is a veteran Guznetzel in the playoffs.

Carolina: can afford to take back a bad contract and by doing this they get two very good pieces for their rebuild.


1.) 20 May 2018 19:34:50
Jesus. With how much you talk down Faulk in surprised you think the Oilers should trade Puljujarvi for him.

2.) 20 May 2018 20:05:44
Benson won’t be included.
Second one obvious no from Oilers jeez.

3.) 20 May 2018 20:46:53
Lucic won't waive to go to Carolina.
You would have better chances asking Sekera to waive to go to Carolina where he has played before if you want to add a cap dump from Edm.
But I actually believe both Lucic and Sekera will be an Oiler opening night next season. Lucic for sure anyways.

4.) 20 May 2018 21:22:27
@Yup Faulk is still a great top PP dman but besides that he’s subpar at best. Also I’m not sure what makes you think he won’t waive but I’ll respect it.

@McJesus I believe you underrate the negative value Lucic holds and on top of that they’re getting 3 good pieces I’d make that trade from the oilers POV. They could add a good peice from FA on top of that package.



20 May 2018 16:34:06
Option 1
Edmonton: Justin Faulk

Carolina: Jesse Puljujarvi and Tyler Benson

Edmonton: gets a their dynamic pp right shot that can be sheltered by Larsson. Faulk had chemistry with Sekera so that could be a potential d pair if they're willing to push down Nurse

Carolina: gets a two high risk, high reward prospects that could potentially both be top 6 player. Jesse Puljujarvi could potentially resurrect chemistry with Aho and become I great player. I hate to use the word bust but With that being said as of now it looks very unlikely he reaches his potential of being a game changer like Wheeler

Option 2

Edmonton: Malian Lucic, Jesse Puljujarvi and 10th overall

Carolina: Justin Faulk, Justin Willams and 42nd overall

Edmonton: First of all Milian Lucic will waive his MNTC if he feels unwanted in Edmonton ( probably). Edmonton gets out of a terrible contract while getting very good value back. I think Edmonton would really benefit from Willams Presance.

Carolina: Wants to get tougher and can afford to take a bad contract back. Puljujarvi and the 10th overall are two huge steps in a rebuild.




20 May 2018 03:10:12
New York: Micheal Del Colle

Carolina: 42nd overall and 96th overall

New York: Del Colle hasn't been working out in New York and could definitely benefit from a change of scenery they get back two decently high picks.

Carolina: takes a waiver on a high potential player. Del Colle is the definition of a boom or bust player.


1.) 20 May 2018 04:16:27
Nah he a bust.

2.) 20 May 2018 16:38:26
Iskes would ask for a first for him.

3.) 20 May 2018 17:20:04
Looking at his AHL numbers a 1st is to much.



20 May 2018 02:47:39
Carolina: Jordan Staal*

New Jersey: John Quenville and 17th overall

*1 million retained on Staals contract

Carolina: gets a struggling LW prospect who was once considered a top prospect who could still be a top 6 player. They also get a 1st round to draft another forward prospect

New Jersey: gets a 2nd line Center with term to help transition into a contender




13 May 2018 20:39:29
Buffalo: Rasmus Ristolianen

Saint Louis: Colton Paryanko

Buffalo- with the addition of Rasmus Dahlin they need a a physical two way d more then a offensive dman. Paryanko looks like a a younger faster Shea Weber.

Saint Louis- gets a more offensive minded dman who can log top minutes his avg was 26:30 with Petro being defensive minded they could use a offensive d more. He would take over Petro on the top PP. he goes under the radar because he plays on the worst team in the nhl. He is just as good if not better then John Klingberg.

Both are both equally talented players that play extremely different styles


1.) 13 May 2018 22:57:42
Parayko* and this will never happen.

2.) 13 May 2018 22:58:56
However instead of saying this is dumb, this is actually pretty interesting. but yeah won’t haopen.

3.) 13 May 2018 23:58:02
Yah I agree it’s unrealistic but it’d help both franchises but while it’s a professional business both GMs would have emotional attachments with those players.

4.) 14 May 2018 02:59:46
STL isn't moving Parayko.

5.) 14 May 2018 08:10:49
STL is moving parayko.

6.) 14 May 2018 17:55:10
STL will not be moving parayko. They do not have a replacement.

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.



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.




29 Jun 2016 21:27:42
Pk for Weber that's a weird interesting trade

Safe to say that's the biggest trade in the last 10 years 2stars.


1.) 29 Jun 2016 22:43:10
Wouldn't say it's the top trade in the last 10 years but defs top 5.

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.

If Montreal retains 2 mil off Weber I’d do Nylander + the 25th overall. Weber is definitely worth his contract right now. Kind of scared he dosent rebound from his injury now tho.

There is just way to many variables for this to be believable IMO I do like a lot of those ideas tho but I think Carlson gets more and I’d rather a different package for Gardiner and I’m sure Chicago would want more term then 1 year with Gardiner. Valeri Nichuskinin is pretty redundant although I do like him not sure if Dallas Bites.

Korpisalo could return a 2nd and a prospect from a team like Philly or NYI.
