The Sharks have informed other GMs that Paul Martin is available for trade. $4.85M per and 2 more years left after this one.
He has only played 3 games due to injury.


1.) 14 Jan 2018 06:29:30
I think Sharks would have to retain some salary. he's not worth much anymore. .

2.) 14 Jan 2018 06:41:12
Shark would have to give a a pic or prospect to get ride of him.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 15:59:40
Agreed. He is likely to go to a bottom team that is rebuilding and come with a nice pick for thier trouble.



13 Jan 2018 06:42:00
Jack Johnsons requested a trade. Doesn't like the deminished role and wants to better position himself for free agency.

This is according to Aaron Portzline.


1.) 13 Jan 2018 10:54:18
Feel like he can be a good add to any top 4.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 13:10:41
Honestly, i think he's the best fit for Toronto.

Better than Gudbranson.
He'll come cheaper than Mike Green.

And he's a two way dman. Not pure offence, but also a decently mobile dman.

Only reason CBJ may not move him is because his value is probably at an all time low with his numbers: 19:00 avg/ 44-2-8 statline. However, if they do shop him, I hope Toronto targets him.

@yup whadya think would be a fair deal? Considering he's UFA at season end.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 13:07:52
I feel like LA would like him back.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 17:07:57
Should Tor want a right handed shot for their top 4?
Left side Rielly Gardiner right side _____ Zietsev?
Gudbranson or Green are better fits for Toronto than Jack Johnson in my opinion. Can he play right side well? I don't know this.

5.) 13 Jan 2018 18:28:22
i don't know either, lol. Guddy does look attractive as an option, but for me, i'd say no to green simply because toronto has versions of him in Rielly and Gardiner. We need a good shutdown guy who is a somewhat mobile, and I think JJ could be a fit. Handedness of a player though, not my forte. Lol.

6.) 13 Jan 2018 20:58:14
Ya you want to valence right and left shots out playing their right side. But there are some who can play their off side very good, Russell does very well on the right side being a lefty for Edm. Some can't play their off side at all.
Not sure in Johnson can or not.

I think he's a good fit for New Jersey or Colorado actually. And they would probably be interested in trying to resign him in the off season as well. Dallas is a good fit too maybe.



08 Jan 2018 05:33:16
Slepyshev, Benning, 2nd for Marner 5th.


1.) 08 Jan 2018 06:02:46
I know they lost again but keep your head up buddy. Still half a season to go.

2.) 08 Jan 2018 06:24:33
The oilers are just in a slump. They were underachieving last year as well. The refs always against the alberta teams too doesn't help

3.) 08 Jan 2018 06:30:13
Lmao oiler need to add some quality.

4.) 08 Jan 2018 06:30:21
I know they’re just in a slump flamer but the refs against Alberta teams? That’s news to me.

5.) 08 Jan 2018 06:32:30
Did Wideman ruin it for the entire province?

6.) 08 Jan 2018 09:24:13
No but there always seems to be poor officiating towards the oilers and flames. The only 2 teams i watch so i notice it alot

7.) 08 Jan 2018 13:10:39
I could see if Wideman still played for Calgary there would be a possible motive but I’m sure the refs aren’t out to get you. It’s probably the only reason Wideman doesn’t have a job right now. I think he’d still be a serviceable defenseman.

8.) 08 Jan 2018 13:37:15
Flamer you seem like an alright guy. If the Alberta teams are the only 2 teams you watch, how are you so certain that “Nurse can easily get a better package” in my proposal yesterday? Jake is becoming a well rounded defenseman, showing why he also went in the 1st round. He still makes mistakes like everyone else, the mistakes are just highlighted more when you play for the leafs. Nurse is a good defenseman as well and I like his style, which is why I want him on the leafs. If the leafs make the playoffs, they need to be tougher. I think the reason Edmonton did so well in the playoffs last year is partially because they are big and tough.

9.) 08 Jan 2018 14:56:46
I do watch highlights of other teams but Gardner seems to be improving but the whole life team is impressive right now. Just cause gardiner is doing good now doesn't mean his value booms. Its been half a season and he really hasn't been impressive the last couple of seasons. Nurse is young and gritty. He plays a pretty solid shut down role aswell. And i believe he could acquire a good winger just like Larsson - Hall trade. Nurse for Marner would possibly be a very fair trade now and in the long run. I don't think oil should give up a dman which (they need) but they also need more scoring. Tricky move but their best bet is to acquire a forward or defencemen for a pick and or prospect.

10.) 08 Jan 2018 18:33:05
Lol you wish
Just keep tanking for the draft

And this time make sure you don't bust your studs.

11.) 08 Jan 2018 19:22:55
Habs look at your team loool no room to beak anybody. Your team traded one of the hottest defencemen right now for an average RW. And now wanna trade your captain cause your gm is trash. Your team rips on its own players and has Weber, Pacioretty, Price, Drouin and still suck.

12.) 08 Jan 2018 19:47:17
Fair enough flamers but Gardiner was actually better last year IMO. He struggled a bit this season but seems to be getting back on track. You’re absolutely right about Nurse having a better defensive game. I’m hoping the leafs can get a gritty shut down defenseman without giving up Marner or Nylander. I think they’d be stupid to trade one of them before we see what Liljegren brings to the table.

13.) 08 Jan 2018 21:23:03
Assuming this is a bad joke?

14.) 08 Jan 2018 21:49:32
I think it's a good joke actually.

15.) 08 Jan 2018 22:44:55
You guys are right. Maybe Toronto adds.



06 Jan 2018 19:58:49
It's reported that the Leafs have an offer on the table for Gudbranson
A draft pick and 21 year old prospect Andrew Nielson.
It isn't suggested what pick.
Andrew Nielson was Leafs 65th overall pick in 2015. 6' 3" 207lbs.
Gudbranson $3.5m. UFA after this season.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 21:00:46
Obviously depends on what the pick is. But I assume it will be a 2nd or 3rd. I’m good with it as a leafs fan. Canucks in Toronto tonight too, so could be done quickly. I watch the marlies quite a bit and Nielsen has some potential but he hasn’t separated himself from 3-4 other D of similar age in the organization. To get a guy that really fits a need for the leafs today, you got to give something.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 21:01:40
Leafs also just called up dermott to play his first NHL game against the Canucks and he is the one that has kinda pulled away from the pack. Hope they aren’t showcasing him.

3.) 06 Jan 2018 22:12:57
With Gudbranson being a UFA at seasons end. Do you think he is looked at as a rental or try to keep him in the off season?

4.) 06 Jan 2018 23:26:11
Read that the pick is a 3rd. And with the cintracts expiring, I think Gudbranson is just a rental. Unless we get him cheap, but that prob won't happen.

5.) 07 Jan 2018 00:01:54
I think he would be a good fit for a rental for the Leafs.
Just being a rental is a 3rd and that prospect too much? I don't know what to think about Gudbranson so i'm curious.

6.) 07 Jan 2018 00:45:42
I think if he came to the leafs and fits in there’s obviously a chance they could extend him. But they also have a friend and former partner of zaitsev in Russia who has committed to signing as soon as his khl season is done. So I don’t know if they want too many long term commitments unless it’s a star coming in which Gudbranson clearly isn’t.

7.) 07 Jan 2018 01:18:38
You got to admit his career went downhill very fast.

8.) 07 Jan 2018 07:46:45
Gudbranson looked terrible tonight. It would be nice having a big physical defenseman on the back end though.



31 Dec 2017 07:30:42
Ott: Hoffman

STL: Tage Thompson and a 1st.


1.) 31 Dec 2017 14:26:55
I think it’s the type of deal that it would take. I’m sure blues fans will say it’s a lot but I think it’s in the ballpark. Pretty decent proposal. But curious tho, why you would post Hoffman for Thompson (young late 1st rounder) and a future first, but when it was Yamamoto (young late first rounder) straight up or bear and a 3rd for Hoffman, it was bad from oilers perspective? Doesn’t that show the over value of those guys or at least undervaluing other teams players/ prospects in comparison to your own?

2.) 31 Dec 2017 15:15:10
Nah, tage thompson isn't that good of a prospect. I'd consider it if it were Thomas or Kostin because it's going to be a Late first for sure

3.) 31 Dec 2017 18:13:04
Onice again you say he isn't that good. Have you seen him play sofar. I have. Big kid, power forward. But once again. Blues do not have a first. Thompson is a rh rw which is a blues need. Tags is cost controlled which is a blues need. Blues are at the cap so Hoffman 5 mil will not work.

4.) 31 Dec 2017 19:19:01
You just love twisting my words hey Jim.
Team needs and circumstance are totally different man. Come on. You didn't understand anything I said the first two times, why should I believe you would now.

So you think just because two players are drafted in a similar spot then they have the same value, to their team?
So with that thinking, Galchenyuk, S. Reinhart, Bennet have more value than say, Boeser, Pastrnak now?

5.) 01 Jan 2018 18:52:16
No because those players have played years in the league and proven what they are or aren’t. But 2 kids drafted in similar spots in the same draft or a year apart who both haven’t proven anything yet would hold at least similar value. Talk about twisting words, I’m not saying Jamie Benn is worse than Sam Gagner because he was a 5th rounder and Gagner was a 6th overall because they have proven who’s obviously better. But it’s not a stretch to say Yamamoto and another teams forward prospect drafted mid to late a year apart with no real NHL sample can be comparable. Figure that out. He’s not automatically better than guys taken around him in the draft because who drafted him.

6.) 01 Jan 2018 21:00:13
I'm not talking about players drafted in similar spots being similar in skill and value.
I'm talking about the value to their team that picked them. There's a reason teams pick certain players. For a certain team need and circumstance.
So just because two players were drafted in similar spots does not meant they have the exact same value, to their team. Read those last three there words carefully.

7.) 02 Jan 2018 01:55:04
That’s my point lol you’re fine saying the blues or any other teams should give their prospects away for half the value of yours. Like the blues just threw a dart at a board to make their pick? They didn’t use their first round pick to select someone that fits into their plan and team needs?

8.) 02 Jan 2018 16:42:11
Winger prospect for a better now winger when you're in a spot to battle for a cup
Is way way different than your best D prospect for a winger when you might not even make the playoffs.
Different circumstances man. Makes more sense for some teams to make certain trades than other teams.
If STL wasn't in a playoff spot I would never suggest this deal.

9.) 02 Jan 2018 23:35:51
Blues say no.

16 Jan 2018 18:57:02
The Toronto maple leafs have switched Travis Dermotts number from 3 to 23 with ought consulting him.
Says this is fueling trad speculation.
Weather or not it is I don't care.
But why is a team changes a players number? This might be the first time I've ever heard of it. Does it hale on a lot? What's the issue with him having #3?


1.) 16 Jan 2018 19:14:07
Not speculation he is being traded. It that Someone is coming to Toronto. Like Phanuef! He wants his #3 back. Haha 😜
Maybe Johnson wants it. Or Yandle. Or Gudbranson.

But anyways, Has anyone ever heard of the team just changed a players number? First time I've heard of it. Kinda a dick move without consulting him and letting him pick his new number.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 00:22:59
Probably going to retire phaneufs number. He’s an all time great.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 00:24:36
Leafs17 beat me to the draw lol.

4.) 17 Jan 2018 01:28:34
He is a legend. I do t see why they wouldn't. Haha.

5.) 17 Jan 2018 02:44:10
Oh so Leads 17/ Nylander. Wow I never would of tought lol.

6.) 17 Jan 2018 04:16:22
What is it your “tinking” Buck? I’m not Nylander.

7.) 17 Jan 2018 05:30:48
Just f’n with you Buck.



16 Jan 2018 18:26:42
Here's how many trades each team has made from Jan 8, 2016 to Jan 8, 2018. The last two years.

Average 12.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 22:53:38
You have a lot of time on your hands yup.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 23:50:58
This was a copy and paste. Lol I didn't do it.
A guy named Salim Nadim Valji calculated these numbers.
Funny how someone disagrees on an actual stat. Lol. I laughed at that.
You got any comment for the dermott number thing? Is there a trade coming to Toronto or what?

3.) 17 Jan 2018 00:12:14
I have no idea why they’d do that. Maybe they’re retiring Phaneuf’s #, lol. I’d like to see them keep Dermott, he looked good in the few games he played. It’s no secret that they’re looking for a defenseman but changing Dermott’s number is a mystery to me. I didn’t hear too much about it but we don’t know what happens behind the scenes. You’d think there would be a reason.

4.) 17 Jan 2018 00:35:00
Ya I don't think it has anything to do with trading Dernott, at all. But to take a players number away without consulting him then not even letting him chose his new one, is so strange. People are thinking it just means they are making a trade to bring someone who wants that number in. I read a few rumors and fits to that being Phanuef (lol not) Yandle and Johnson.
It's strange tho.



14 Jan 2018 19:12:24
Arizona has set an asking price for OEL.
Two "top flight" players as well as a 1st round pick.
Also shopping Hjalmersson.


1.) 14 Jan 2018 19:56:41
When they say top flight. What are they taking about? Like Stone? Or a Gallagher? Because 2 Stones and a 1st i think are way to much.
I think OEL is a good Dman. don't get me wrong. But I don't see him in the upper echelon of D. maybe it's because being in Arizona, it's not about hockey there but soap opera about the business aspect.
Maybe someone can educate me about OEL. I see his offensive stats are good. how is his D? I guess that's what i'd like to know, is he a complete guy like Hedman?
I jus don't know enough about the buy to judge his value.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 20:18:24
He's still in the top 15 dmen in the league for sure. Probably top 10 if he was anywhere else other then arizona.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 20:39:32
Ya I'm not really sure myself. i'm hoping it's not two established top line wingers type a thing. Maybe like A prospects with good potential? One top prospect and one established good player?
I'm not sure. The only Bing I'm taking out of this is that's he's now in fact available for trade. Weather he was or wasn't before when Chayka was saying he isn't available, who cares. He is now. And yes a hell of a piece for any blue line.
There's a lot of big names out there that could change teams for next season. It's kinda exciting.
Lots going on around guys like Karlsson, Tavares, Doughty. That's not saying they are moving, also not saying they aren't. Who knows.
E Kane. Pacioretty. Hoffman. Johnson. OEL. JVR (? ) .
Lots of bigger names could be had.

4.) 14 Jan 2018 23:42:33
Kadri, Rielly And 1st. I’d hate trading Rielly and I’d try replacing him with Gardiner.

5.) 15 Jan 2018 04:35:18
I'll put this in the right post. but it's prob all effed up now. thanks Habby and Yup on your OEL insight.

6.) 15 Jan 2018 16:37:36
Im don't think plus/ minus is a great stat but he's like - 40 this year so.



14 Jan 2018 04:36:45
Nathan McKinnon tied last years point totals with 53, in 40 fewer games.
He's the biggest winner since that Duchene trade? Then Nashville/ Turris, then Ottawa?


1.) 14 Jan 2018 06:27:14
I think it was jus finally his time. he was playing good before Duchene wad dealt., but is on a new level since it has truly become his team. I think when ita all said and done, each team will balance out. Duchene was horrible at first, but has been better, and Turris was on fire.
It is nice to see MacKinnon playing to his potential.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 13:49:42
IT also helps that Ranatanen is also a point per game player. Everyone forgets about Rantanen. There's a reason those two were the only "untouchables" for the Avs in the summer.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 22:24:49
Ya, I agree Kingslover, that Finnish kid is really good.



12 Jan 2018 19:40:50
Is Maroon worth a 2nd?
I think he's traded before deadline for sure. And is a very good option to a playoff team who doesn't want to pay the way higher price for a E Kane, Hoffman, Pacioretty (1st +) . At the start of the year I thought he was worth a 2nd for sure. I haven't been a huge fan of his this season and think his value dropped a little to a 3rd and a whatever prospect.
But I do still think he's a very good pick
Up playoff type player for a team who doesn't want to spend a 1st. I'm still a big fan of his, don't get me wrong. But being a UFA at seasons end, Edm not in a playoff position, and then wanting to upgrade I the top 6 winger spot, He will be traded.


1.) 12 Jan 2018 21:32:36
3rd and meh prospect is probably what he gets tbh. Just simply looking at prior trades, I think that's what he gets. Similar to Vanek last year, a 3rd and McIlrath.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 00:07:04
IMO., the best team ever in International play was 87 team Canada., the team they coulda pit together for his Olympics coulda been just as good.
I guess, more wondering. who wouldn't make it that would be a surprise. does Toews make it? How bout Weber? Would be a few new faces.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 06:48:05
Well I wrote that in the wrong spot


4.) 13 Jan 2018 17:32:12
I'm back on the side that Maroon can get a 2nd.

Elliot friendman thinks he will get a 2nd and a prospect with bottom six or depth D man potential. I'll be happy if a 2nd. Any add is bonus.

5.) 14 Jan 2018 04:17:13
Sosa that team probably had the most talent but the best actual team would still have to be the 72 team canada. To go to russia under all the circumstances and do what they did was the true definition of team.

Very interesting. Letang with a NTC might not accept a trade to Buffalo in my opinion.
But it's not bad for both teams. Pens lose that contract. Buffalo gets a great boost at D.
