So apperently Freidman says Toronto didn't want to trade Nylander in a deal for Pietrangelo. Blues put him in with Nylander discussions but it was the Leafs who decided to keep Nylander. He notes maybe for two reasons, Nylander is 6 years younger and that Toronto might not be able to fit what Pieteangelos extension might be (he's eligible in July) and that Toronto would prefer someone with term on their deal still in that particular possible trade. Doesn't mean they won't reconsider him at some point.
The biggest take away from this is the fact that his name is out there and that the Blues would consider moving him.

Elliote Freemans words.

Colt, the Leafs wouldn't trade you Nylander straight up for Petro, Then they certainly wouldn't trade you Nylander, Liljigren, 1st for him. You have been proved wrong just a day after saying that's what it would take for Petro down a few posts. That's from Freidman. Not me.


1.) 13 Dec 2018 13:14:42
Ah sorry didn't mean to speculate a straight up deal was in talks. I take that part back. But blues would have included Petro in talks for Nylander and the Leafs decided not to go after it. Not sure if it was a straight up deal. But that does show you the Leafs valued Ny a little more and that packages couldn't be worked out to make it work.

2.) 13 Dec 2018 14:13:55
I was going to say that. Just because leafs said they wouldn’t include Nylander doesn’t mean Armstrong would have done it if they did. But point well made that cost certainty and youth is valued by leafs more than some people think. If it was with a 6 year extension at $7-7.5mill, I’d really want them to try to acquire him. If it’s with 1 year and then uncertainty or 7-8 years at $8.5+ mill (which with Carlson at $8 mill and OEL at $8.25 isn’t out of the question) then no thanks. Not possible without losing other really key pieces which would take us farther away from winning than closer.

Losing a high end forward for a top RHD makes sense given the team structure. But if it costs us Nylander to acquire Petro, and then Kadri or Kappy and Hyman have to go to re-sign him, I’d rather just use picks to patch up the D and go with the insane forward depth we have.

3.) 13 Dec 2018 15:53:55
Does friendman site his sources or is this more speculation on speculation on speculation. I am not saying this did or did not happen. I am saying that just because nylander isn't available doesn't mean that blues will take a lesser payday for Petro. While we are on the same sublject how do we know that Petro was shopped at all. For all we know there hasn't even been a conversation. Or maybe Dubas called army, army said no or told him his price.

The fact is we just don't know. Everything being reported is specualtion on speculation. Its like the exercise they had you do when you were in grade school where one kid makes something up tells the next kid who tells the next kid and by the time it gets to the last kid what was said in the begining and what came out at the end are completely different. There has been no sources, quoutes, no solid evidence any of this has taken place.

4.) 13 Dec 2018 16:45:23
Don't really need sources to figure out that proposing Petro for Nylander, a 1st and Liljegren is completely out of touch with reality.

5.) 13 Dec 2018 17:22:37
This is a trade rumour site. Speculation on speculation is what it’s founded on lol blues are struggling, coach is fired, they still struggle, reports say core players are available, they have good RHD, leafs fans are well represented on this site, leafs need RHD lol yes, we are all aware it’s speculative, but if all you want is confirmed trades on a site you read, then read team press releases.

99% of the players we discuss on here don’t get traded and 80% of players that the ‘experts’ speculate about don’t get traded. Who cares. You talk about all different players on here like we all do, but because it’s your team struggling and under the microscope, you’re taking issue. Crappy teams have rumours follow them. When it’s a crappy team that was expected to be really good, they get more rumours. That’s life.

6.) 13 Dec 2018 17:30:13
Friedman is the source. He doesn't just say things to hear his voice. He one of the most well know insiders in the sport. He doesn't just say things for the sake of it.

7.) 13 Dec 2018 19:45:09
Freidman's exact words are as follows : "My guess is as follows : St louis put him in Nylander discussions ".

He even admits he's guessing, admits no source etc etc . Can't believe people don't read articles properly but that's life i guess, got to get those hits though and credit where credit is due Elliot is a master at this . Kudos Mr Freidman

Yupp i expected more from you. I would expect that you actually read the article and not what other people spun it to be.

LOL come on people.



15 Nov 2018 20:16:41
Tor: Nylander, 1st, Johansen, Lilgiren or Sandin.
LAK : Doughty, Tofoli (%25 retained on his $4.6M for this and next season) .

Who says no?


1.) 15 Nov 2018 21:05:48
Doughtys $11 mill isn’t going to work. We will take Tofolis whole $4.6 if they retain on doughty for 8 years lol.

2.) 15 Nov 2018 21:09:37
If there was a way cap wise, I’d do that trade. Playing with good players I think Tofoli would be a 60pt Guy also. Nylanders a lot more dynamic so I would t say they are wash by any means but he could replace a lot of his current production. And a late 1st, Johnsson who I see as a career 3rd liner and One of those 2 Dmen, preferably liljegren because doughty and zaitsev would be Locked in on RHD for a long time and Gardiner would have to walk, leaving Rielly, Dermott, Sandin for L side.

3.) 15 Nov 2018 21:44:05
LA shoots that one down I’m sure. Very significant offer. But given that LA just re-signed Doughty long term, and at high cost, I’m pretty sure they consider him the face of the franchise. Leafs would have a hard time affording Doughty’s $11M salary as well. Would love Doughty on the team. Still the best in the game. Having a hard time seeing it ever happen though.

4.) 15 Nov 2018 21:51:29
I say no. With Tavares signed for 11 mill, Matthews will be in or around 12 mill and Marner 8-9 mill, having Doughty at 11 mill will be absolutely crazy.

5.) 15 Nov 2018 22:20:10
I'm not sure. But I don't do it if I'm the leafs that contract is just too much to take on going forward.

6.) 15 Nov 2018 22:29:34
Doughty would be awesome, but can the leafs afford his contract?

7.) 16 Nov 2018 16:52:57
Leafs couldn’t afford that contract if they retained like 2mil it would work.



14 Nov 2018 18:26:11
It was rumord the last few days LAK GM Rob Blake wanted to make a move. Pearson for Hagelin straight up. Decent for both sides?
Pearson $3.75 for this and two more seasons.
Hagelin $4M UFA after this season.
Pens retain $250K on Hagelin so teams caps don't change at all but they take on two more years of Pearson.


1.) 14 Nov 2018 18:43:03
Isnt Pearson quite a bit younger? And how old is Hagelin now? I think of anything Kings should look at going a lot younger.

2.) 14 Nov 2018 18:46:42
Lol. Jus read that it happened.

3.) 14 Nov 2018 21:15:58
Doesn’t seem like a good trade for the kings IMO. Maybe a little over payed but Pearson’s contract isn’t that big. He’s 4 years younger and scored 24 goals two seasons ago.

4.) 14 Nov 2018 21:17:30
I'd rather have pearson but neither guy is tearing it up or anything.

5.) 14 Nov 2018 21:42:11
I’d rather Pearson too, but that’s looking from the outside in. Pearson isn’t fast, neither is just about anyone on LA besides Kempe.

Watching the leafs play them twice in the last few weeks, they look so so slow. I know the leafs are a very quick team, but I don’t see the kings, as they’re constructed, outskating any team and that’s the way games are won now. It’s tough to make a splash when Doughty, Kopitar, and quick won’t be traded. Brown and Phaneuf probably can’t be traded. What do you do? Pearson and toffoli (I guess Muzzin/ Martinez too) are the only guys that are kinda core pieces that could be moved. They don’t gain or lose money and add a player that helps their glaring weakness, lack of speed.

6.) 14 Nov 2018 21:49:22
LA needs more speed and he’s the fastest player in the game. ( yes he is the fastest skater ever )

7.) 15 Nov 2018 03:30:12
Ever Heard of McDavid Larkin Barzal and Mackinnon.

8.) 15 Nov 2018 12:31:18
Hey KFC, VBB is just over exaggerating trolling there looking to start arguments, it happened a lot here.

9.) 15 Nov 2018 12:45:09
He’s litterly the fastest skater ever look it up he just never shown it at a all star game.

10.) 15 Nov 2018 12:50:55
No actually I’m not exaggerating Haglin is the fastest skater in the NHL his time he took in Sweden ( no running start ) beat Larkin with a running start and McDavid he’s substantially faster then McDavid without the puck. With that being said he can’t play the game at that top speed.

11.) 15 Nov 2018 15:08:09
Hagelin is super fast but I don’t even think he’s top 5 fast in the league anymore.

12.) 15 Nov 2018 17:15:50
When Hagelin was deemed the fastest top speed skater in the NhL, he beat Grabner, hall and all the fast guys. But that was in 2014. Something happened in June of 2015 that changed that lol mcdavid was drafted. I don’t know exactly all the speeds, but Larkin, mcdavid, Hagelin, Grabner (slowing down a bit) and a few younger guys like kapanen, Miles Wood and others are all super fast. Regardless Hagelin is a hell of a lot faster than Pearson and just about everyone on the kings roster so it’s obvious what the plan was.

13.) 15 Nov 2018 19:01:51
Well the reality is Haglin holds the record for fastest skater ever. McDavid may be more explosive but he’s not faster.

14.) 15 Nov 2018 21:29:59
Thanks Nhl discussion.



30 Oct 2018 14:56:21
Any cool news or rumors going around now that we are 10 games into the season?

Side note, I love when players give kids sticks, pucks and make their day in any way. Like Ovie on Calgary the other night and Holtby. I bet that kind of stuff happens every day and every game but we don't see it all. I wish we saw more of it caught on camera.


1.) 30 Oct 2018 16:02:50
See if there's any other news, rumors or stories out there on any other teams besides Edm and Tor.
I'm sorry if this upsets anyone but let's change it up a bit on this thread. Is that possible? Let's see.

2.) 30 Oct 2018 16:05:17
Unrelated to hockey, I'm on a big pipeline project in Sask Canada right now. Building 280km of pipe to Manitoba border and going to be going through Brock Lesners property in a few weeks. Think he will bring out hot chocolate?

Hey Yupp just curious because i'm a plumber, what's your trade?

5.) 30 Oct 2018 23:25:16
The biggest thing I heard is Wilson appealing his suspension.

And it getting denied.

So he appealed the appeal.

I can't understand why there's an appeal to the appeal, and don't understand why the NHLPA sides with Wilson. its a players association, sure, you stick up for the player, but he intentionally and deliberately injured another player. shouldn't you be more harsh?

(Not really a rumour, just an opinion, lol)

As well, Borowicki (future Ottawa captain, @Rambo) got suspended, came back, and got suspended again. Second suspension was a bit much tho.

6.) 30 Oct 2018 23:27:00
I have a few tickets in NDT. X Ray and ultrasound and others. Inspecting the welds on this job with ultrasound on this project. Been doing mostly plant work the last ten years but have been doing pipeline work all across Canada now since June. I'll probably bounce back and fourth from plant shutdowns and pipleine work.

What do some of the rest of you do for work?

7.) 31 Oct 2018 00:39:43
I work at Chrysler in Windsor, with Kassian’s uncle. In 2008 I thought I might lose my job and took all the plumbing and pipefitting courses but never pursued it because I got my job back. I’m still considering moving out west to apprentice while my wife teaches. It’s tough to give up on a job that pays so well and has benefits out the ass though. I have a 20 year old that lives in Camrose, Alberta. I may have been an Oiler or flames fan by now had I moved, lol. Our talks would be quite different.

9.) 31 Oct 2018 02:06:20
Ya Leafs17 u might of made the right choice not pursuing plumbing. Unless you are deeply passionate about it, it's not the way to go if u all u have in mind is money. I love the trade but for the headaches and possible bankruptcy with just 1 simple mistake u have to think about it twice. Unless u where planning on doing only residential then ure ok but comercial. Oh boy.

Leafs GM Dubas has flown to Switzerland to meet with RFA Nylander to try and get a deal done. Nylander has been training in Sweden all along now and hey agreed on a neutral site in Switzerland to meet.

Source: nhl. discussion Instagram.


1.) 18 Oct 2018 14:36:10
Who put unbelievable? This is 100% true.

2.) 18 Oct 2018 15:35:31
Yeah. Apparently it was just to make it a little more personal. From the reports I heard, Dubas’s Top dollar hasn’t moved but he felt it was important to meet face to face to tell Nylander that they have no intentions of trading him. That’s a main concern of Nylanders, which I understand, is if he signs for less than he feels he’s worth to be a part of a great team and ends up in Arizona or Carolina, he would look like a fool (canes look good though early) .

Also from what Darren Dreger said this morning, this is a meeting with dubas and Nylander only. No assistant GMs standing with dubas and no agents or dad sitting with Nylander. That could make a big difference too. Dubas was apparently a huge sell for Tavares and he can maybe get Nylander to relate to him and see the big picture better without all the other voices and distractions. Hopefully something good comes from it.

Goalie Bob. Has a NMC, making $7.425M a year now.
What will happen with this guy.
Going to be 31 years old end of Sept 2019 start of next season.

What kind of offer will he be thrown, by who? And when?


1.) 10 Dec 2018 04:05:44
I would think that if he is traded it would be over the summer but i truly don't know what kind of return he could get.

I would see him go to stl. If allen keeps playing decent for the rest of the season i could see something along the lines of

Clb bob

Stl allen, 1st 2020, maroon.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 05:46:34
Why would anyone trade for him over the summer? He’s a UFa. They only own him till July 1st at noon. If he’s not traded at the deadline, he will just sign for big money to wherever he wants to go. I assume there would be 3-4 teams willing to pay up for a top goalie, maybe a cpl more. St Louis, Calgary, Carolina, islanders and possibly Vancouver/ Philly depending on what they see in demko and hart between now and then.

3.) 10 Dec 2018 12:41:39
He's a UFA at seasons end. That's why I'm asking what kind of offer some people think he will get.
There's rumors he wants close to Price money. With him being 31 start of next season, I wouldn't want him for more than 3/ 4 years at like $7M. I wonder how bad other teams will want him to offer him the most money and term. That's all I'm asking about.
Is he worth 5 years $9M?

4.) 10 Dec 2018 14:08:26
I should have mentioned the UFA part in the post but that's what I meant by asking what kind of offer will be thrown at him, by what team. And by who, thinking if someone really wants him that bad they might convince CLB to trade him during the season and then try to extend him.
Or does he finish the season out in CLB and then just walk and sign as a UFA somewhere else.

5.) 10 Dec 2018 23:23:08
If bobrovsky goes to free agency you have to think someone will give him 10m for 5 years. At least i think.
Would see the flyers make an offer like that and they can probably make it fit in their salary cap if they don't sign wayne Simmond.

6.) 11 Dec 2018 00:11:36
I think he could go to NYI hopefully for $9M and make MB look like a moron for agreeing to 10.5 for Price.

7.) 11 Dec 2018 14:18:51
I think 9-9.5 mill. Not sure on term. I wouldn’t give a goalie more than 5 years, but someone probably will. I think the price one has shown how hard it is to tie up that kind of money in a goalie, but I get the 8 years for price. He’s a legacy type player for them. But UFA shopping for a goalie, a 7 year deal could be really bad.

It’s just a position that’s so physically and mentally straining that rarely are the same guys at the top of their game for a 5+ year span. LA gave Quick the 10 year deal and he seems to be constantly out and you have that money tied up where you can’t really replace him because he will be coming back with so long still on his deal. Luckily his is only $6mill because it was signed so long ago now, but the price one, and possibly Bob depending what he gets, could really hurt those teams going forward.



02 Dec 2018 05:53:25
So, why did it take this long? What's the reason for that circus?
Nylander is the 7th best forward on the Leafs, as fans on this page have said themselves, but paid more than other teams best players
Gonna be a pretty crazy list.
Marner and Mathews agents sure are happy right now. Same with Tkuchuk, Rantanen, Chabot.


1.) 02 Dec 2018 13:02:50
Hi Yupp,

It took so long because unlike Chiarelli, Dubas took all the time he had to negotiate Nylander down from what was a ridiculous demand of $8+mln/ yr to a more reasonable sub-$7mln/ yr number (instead of just giving him what he asked for and being “so easy to negotiate with”) . It took that long because Nylander was stubborn and not willing to budge.

And yes, Nylander is the 7th best player on the Leafs, and paid more than many other teams best players. This is because, if you look at the standings, the Leafs are really good, and have a lot of good players. It’s challenging from a cap perspective but really a good problem to have (would you rather your team not have a lot of good players? ) .

And yes, all of those really good players you highlighted are certainly about to get paid. Luckily for you (since you are so concerned) none of them play for Edmonton!

2.) 02 Dec 2018 14:38:01
I mean the real reason it took this long was Dubas milking it for the lower cap hit in following years. This is probably a deal Nylander would have signed a week into the season but they get more cap relief in the future by playing hardball and waiting it out.

3.) 02 Dec 2018 16:37:05
I think everyone in the hockey world knew Nylander was asking too much. Some of you still think he got too much. What is so difficult in seeing why this took so long? Dubas had a number and so did Nylander, the player lost. Only Burkie and yupper are having trouble figuring this out. One is the ex GM and probably thinks he could’ve signed Nylander for $4 million. One is looking for a bad thing to the leafs having too much f’n talent. Like unsportsmanlike said, Edmonton should not have to worry because everyone they draft gets traded for scraps or does not turn out to be an NHL player. Can we move on from Nylander yet? Now it is a bad thing that they have to sign Marner and Matthews, maybe they should trade them to the Oilers for Lucic and Brodziak. Then there would be no worry about negotiations and having non leaf fans concerned about the well being of the team throughout all of this.

4.) 02 Dec 2018 18:32:29
it took so long because the player got his $7.5mill while team got $6.9. Mill cap hit. No other way to make that happen. What’s difficult about that?! Lol

Everyone I’ve listened too has said dubas won and thatbhis mentor Lou, like him or not is a legend of shewed negotiating, would be proud. Only one that didn’t is Brian Burke, who I have nothing against and find him entertaining m, says he overpaid. However this is the same Brian burke who gave Phil Kessel who was a 60pt RFA aswell $5.4 mill 10 years ago and also gave 2 first rounders to acquire him. He also paid mike komosarek 4.5 or 4.75 mill like 10 years ago when the cap was half as much. Glass house situation on this one.

5.) 02 Dec 2018 18:34:34
I’ll deal with being a leaf fan and have to answer questions over how to fit players like Matthews and marner under the cap because of a player like Nylander instead of “how are we going to resign Drake Caggiula with how much Milan Lucic makes! ”.

6.) 02 Dec 2018 18:54:43
But jim to the point burke was trying to make kessel wasn't the 6th or 7th best player on the team when he signed him. not that I totally agree with his point. I think you have to pay market value no matter where the player stands on your own depth chart. The best case scenario IMO would have been to trade nylander at the start of the season but I guess for some reason that didn't happen. I also think with the amount of negative stuff that's been said about nylander and his father during this ordeal things could go sour pretty fast. But I guess if he comes back and rips it up all will be forgivin.

7.) 02 Dec 2018 19:27:31
fans on twitter have criticized his father. Reporters, the same ones that you say don’t know the real story, have said his dad was very influential. I’m sure dubas, shanahan, prodham and Babcock weren’t name calling his father during their talks lol fans also said trade the greedy person, and most of them are happy he’s signed now. The badmouthing of him or his dad was not from anyone that matters within the organization and has zero affect going forward. Cap space and on ice performance is what’s going to determine his future. Not fans saying his dad is greedy lol.

8.) 02 Dec 2018 20:13:07
So are you saying these reporters always know the full story? if he struggles you will find out soon enough how deep those cuts are. look I don't mind the deal for either side I'm just not going to stay silent when people on here try and put dubas on a pedestal for this signing. i think any GM in the league could have got him signed at the price he did. And if nylander didn't like the deal he got and agreed to he would have sat out. It's still a little higher then he deserved even you wanted him at 6.5mil thinking it was a fair deal.

9.) 02 Dec 2018 20:52:58
I have said all along $6.5-6.75 was ideal and I could see a case for just shy of $7. You can look back and see those exact words multiple times if you want lol i would say $6.97 is just shy of $7mill.

Reporters don’t always know the full story. It’s just you say they don’t when they say Nylander wanted $8.5 but they do know what they’re talking about when they say dubas wanted to pay low to mid 6’s and his fathers greedy. Either we take what they say as the truth or not but not sometimes.

10.) 02 Dec 2018 22:52:42
No that's not how it works we take what they say to be true when it is actually true like when they have a reliable source. Not when they are speculating. I don't believe them when they say dubas wanted him at 6.5 either until it's confirmed. But you seem to believe everything they say so I'll ask you this. Pierre lebrun has reported the leafs had wanted a deal at 6x6 at the beginning of the year and now they signed for 6 x 6.9 or 6.7x 7.5 whichever way you want to slice it. So does this still mean it's a win for dubas?

11.) 03 Dec 2018 05:04:56
Yes because Pierre lebrun also said Nylander wanted $8.5 mill to start. So 6.9 is still closer to 6 than 8.5. Try to spin it how you want. It’s a good deal for the leafs. Too much talent is a problem, I know lol ridiculous.

12.) 03 Dec 2018 18:50:15
It's a good deal for both. Slight edge to nylander lol.

13.) 03 Dec 2018 21:37:21
Ok lol 👌.



25 Nov 2018 15:55:44
-Laine 5 goals! First time since Fanzen so long ago. I forgot the year. Now leads the league in goals after a slowish start.

-Buffalo 9 straight wins now 1st overall.

-Rantanen just doesn't stop putting up points does he? Predictions on what he will end the season with?

-Some big RFAs after this season watching and cheering Nylander on right now (Doug McLean said, not me) . Liane, Tkuchuk, Rantanen.


1.) 25 Nov 2018 16:21:08
Thank you Kanye, very cool!

[im sorry, i had to, lmao].

2.) 25 Nov 2018 17:45:36
Yeah I find it funny how someone can be leading the league in goals 2 months into the season after being horrible for the first month of the season.

3.) 25 Nov 2018 18:03:07
Look like Leaf fans are going to have to settle for 2nd best of everything again. have Mathews. Laine is better. ( and ya see how he celebrates? Class. ) Toronto good up and coming team, Buffalo is better . awe poor Toronto. going to be 2067 and still talking bout 1967.

Rantanen will be around 90 to 95, surpassed by Mackinnon, McDavid Kucherov. maybe Marner.

4.) 25 Nov 2018 18:19:14
Rantanen is on fire. Multi point games every time I notice him always climbing in league scoring. Impressive! Wonder if he'll keep it up. Certainly looks like he should surpass 100 points playing like he is.

Buffalo wow! Some great off season moves. So nice when it all comes together like it has for them.
O'Rielly trade, all pieces seem to be fitting into good roles, Skinner! Wow. Sheary. Drafting Dahlin, Reinhart and Middlestadt playing important roles well, rest of the D seems good. Biggest surprise might be in net. Hutton playing solid for them. And Ulmark as back up. Seems like a crappt duo but getting the job done! Good for them.

Lianes quick release one time shot is unreal. Body positioning isn't even proper when he gets the shot of a lot of the time and still off he stick and in the back of the net. So impressive.

Buffalo is biggest surprise for me so far this year as well. I knew they were ready for breakout season, but didn’t really think it would be until next year. No longer basement dwellers, they look like a team that will be competitive for years.

Only reason Laine is leading league in goals is because of Matthews injury.



21 Nov 2018 18:36:04
Leafs Prospect G Ian Scott is now 18-1 with 4 shutouts, 1.37GAA, and .951 save % with the PA Raiders. Also has a goal! Tremendous season start for the 4th year CHLer. Be battling Oliver Rodrigue and Micheal DiPietro for team Canada world Jr.

Good work Leafs! Woo! Future starter after Anderson? Has he been on your guys radar Leafs fans?

2.) 22 Nov 2018 16:00:49
In the last 10 years there has been 10 christmas’s, 10 Halloween’s, 10 Easter’s but only 8 Oilers head coaches. Ahead of pace. Good work oilers! Woo!

3.) 22 Nov 2018 16:07:39
Your salty dedication to me makes my day my friend. Fun to watch tho.

4.) 22 Nov 2018 16:08:15
Oh wait. I meant
Hook line and sinker. Derp derp.

5.) 22 Nov 2018 17:00:38
Derp Derp? Are you okay? Sounds like you’re choking? Although you have watched PC enough to know what to do, you’ll survive it like he has lol.

6.) 22 Nov 2018 17:24:40
Oh snap, that's a good one. ouch.
So you get the last jab in there, are you done? moving forward now?

Don't whine about anything in the past with your response, it only requires a simple answer.

7.) 22 Nov 2018 18:04:54
And no salt, I smile while thinking of these fun facts. I will share them throughout the oilers rebounding season.

8.) 22 Nov 2018 18:56:03
Sounds good. I'm glad I affect you so much you take time out of your personal life to think of me.
Cheers buddy.

9.) 22 Nov 2018 18:58:16
And I'm really not sure why you're so concerned with being so whiney you're going to take your time to trash talk te Oilers constantly. Especially when your own team and history has its flaws as well. I just don't get it. How are you that affected by me? 😂
Carolina just had 29 shots in the first period on your Leafs, An NHL record most shots in a period! Like come on buddy. 1967. Every team has its flaws. It's time to move on buddy. Being salty is literally sayin you're going to go out of your way to share facts on a team throughout the season. I'm trying to move on, let's do everyone a favour here. Lol.

Get your one more jab in, I'll let you have the last one.
My GM is awful wish he was fired blah blah blah move forward. 😂😂🍻.

10.) 22 Nov 2018 20:15:21
That’s not an NHL record. That might have been a team record for the hurricanes or a team worse for the leafs allowing that many shots, might have even been a record for a 1st period, but Not an NHL record for shots in a period. Tampa put up more than that a few weeks ago. Call Keith Gretzky in Boston and ask him what the record is.

11.) 22 Nov 2018 21:36:29
Ah thanks. 29 shots in one period isn't terrible then.

Good last shot!
Moving forward now?

12.) 22 Nov 2018 22:35:49
It’s bad. Just not a record like you claimed. I will just file that under “Times Yupp never let a fact get in the way of a good story” along with You telling Ebs that gretzky works for the bruins, telling Leafs17 that the leafs had a better record without Matthews last year than with him in the lineup and telling us that Carolina was a ‘Really hot team that wouldn’t want Nylander’ when they had lost 5 in a row and 8 of 10 lol It’s just par for the course at this point anyway.

13.) 23 Nov 2018 01:05:24
Ok you 2. kiss and make up. lol.

14.) 23 Nov 2018 01:56:16
Hook line and sinker

15.) 23 Nov 2018 01:57:34
You're like my shadow. But super emotional.
My little emo shadow. There for support.
Can I call you ESS from now on. Emo Support Shadow.

16.) 23 Nov 2018 07:19:16
Remember when you ‘literally’ gave VBB an English lesson on what the word ‘literally’ means after you said he used it wrong?! You ‘literally’ just used the word ‘literally’ wrong! Haha 😂 keep telling people they don’t know what they’re talking about though. Hypocrisy and Irony are your shadows, not me lol.

"REPORT: Sabres winger Jeff skinner is asking for $9-9.5M 8 year extension if they don't want him to walk in free agency. What's your max deal if you're the Sabres? Skinner is off to a hot start with 14G 22P in 21GP"


1.) 20 Nov 2018 14:13:50
$7.5 mill for 7-8 years. He’s a talented player but seems to be at his best when he’s playing with great players. Doesn’t create a ton on his own. I would consider him (more proven over time) but a Nylander type player. Little soft, can put up offense but isn’t going to drag a team with him somewhere. Great support piece. Given he’s more proven than Nylander and has the leverage of UFA approaching, I give him a $1-1.5M bonus over Nylander.

2.) 20 Nov 2018 14:50:31
Oh man signing him to 8 years at $9 mln+ screams buyers remorse to me.

He's having a career year so far in a contract year. great timing.

I would balk at anything over $7 mln/ yr, but I'm sure he'll get over $8mln from somebody.

3.) 20 Nov 2018 15:20:15
I'd give him similar to what Pacioretty received from Vegas.
Another reason why I wish 5 yr max deals.

4.) 20 Nov 2018 18:35:56
I'd be hesitant to give him 7 mil tbh but I guess he will get at least that somewhere.

5.) 20 Nov 2018 19:39:37
He Must have the same agent as Nylander? Does. Anyone know.

6.) 20 Nov 2018 23:19:31
Skinner is worth 6 million tops imo. Good stat bu he's a streaky pkayer.

7.) 21 Nov 2018 03:44:25
Nylander is with Lewis Gross of SPM. Skinner is a Newport Sports guy. But regardless who represents him, as long as the GM is a nice guy and easy to deal with, he will get his money. He will look good on Mcdavids wing for $9.5 mill because PC doesn’t like confrontation.

8.) 21 Nov 2018 10:35:08
You’re on fire today Jim. Yes habby I’m agreeing with Jim this time because he is a leaf fan. Did anyone notice how Yupp sneaks in a subtle Nylander jab after asking people to not bring up leafs/ oilers in every post? It’s ok when he does it though because he didn’t mean anything by it, lol.

9.) 21 Nov 2018 10:38:28
My apologies yupp, Jim brought up Nylander first, but there was still a jab in there.

10.) 21 Nov 2018 12:24:14
Lol. Someone says something good about Chia and your butt hurt. That's going to stick for a bit. Bet you'll be easily triggered again sometime soon 😂🍻.

11.) 21 Nov 2018 12:34:06
I'm sorry.

Jim you should go fine the article and Drai agent and Chia, it's a good article. You're taking it the wrong way to try and trash me, I get it. But you're taking it the wrong way buddy. I may not have quoted it perfectly, which meant for you to take it the wrong way. He just meant being about to talk and honesty was good. Not "we want $8.5M and chia just giving in". When it was time to talk, they did. And he had good things to say about honesty and communication, something he said doesn't happen all the time around the league. Chia said one busy week to the agent "I'm not ignoring you, it's a busy week, we will talk soon" something along those lines. And the agent just said how nice that was. Not sure how that's a bad thing you can constantly complain about tho.

12.) 21 Nov 2018 13:05:46
I do the same thing at work. It’s called returning phone calls and rescheduling meetings. Customers/ suppliers of mine really appreciate it too but I don’t get a plaque on the wall for it. I just don’t sell them the products or overpay for supplies after the courteous phone calls though. I guess that’s where me and Petey are different 🤷‍♂️.

13.) 21 Nov 2018 13:28:08
And yes 17, I didn't bring up Nylander first. And my comment wasn't a jab. It was a question. 😳🙄
lol. How are you so butt hurt about that Jim? 💁💁
You spend a lot of effort complaining about the dumbest of stuff.

14.) 21 Nov 2018 14:15:14
Why would you ask us who Jeff skinners agent is? Lol sometimes it takes hours to post and respond on here, you can look it up in 3 seconds. It was a jab, just own it. it was kinda funny, just turns to sad when you try to weasel out of it. I responded with a left hook. It’s fine.

15.) 21 Nov 2018 14:17:08
You can admit it was a jab, followed by a question.

16.) 21 Nov 2018 15:20:41
You guys are triggered easily. You even trigger yourselves most the time I don't even have to do much. Aren't you guys sick of whining yet?

17.) 21 Nov 2018 15:24:59
Even when I ask a simple question you guys whine.
Maybe they have the same agent who wants to cash in for his clients. Maybe one of their agents is Panarins too? I read he may want $10/ 11M on next deal. Guys are wanting to be paiddddd. I didn't want to look it up. Easier to just ask and discuss here. I can't believe how much I have to explain myself to you too.
I'm not looking to argue*
No sarcasm in this comment*.

18.) 21 Nov 2018 16:32:12
It’s not whining. It’s laughing at the fact you do the exact same thing to everyone else that we are doing to you and you say it’s nothing, it happens to you and you complain. BlackAlpaca even laughed saying you constantly do it to others. Even Habby the other day said that you were saying things to purposely argue. Everyone knows you do it, you just won’t admit it. I’m doing it to you in response but have no problem saying I’m doing it. I’ll take shots at the oilers now non stop because you say don’t talk about leafs/ oilers anymore and then create 3 posts about leafs immediately haha.

19.) 21 Nov 2018 23:28:02
Don't drag me into this guys lol. I actually said a lot of us have said things to argue or to keep arguing. Not just yupp.

20.) 22 Nov 2018 02:29:43
Yeah, you said it all started over a Nylander post that Leaf fans took offense to but that yupp only posted to get under ppls skin. That’s what I said, you agreed he posted things to start something. I’ve admitted I've done it too. He says he’s never done that and it’s all other people misinterpreting everything he says lol.

21.) 22 Nov 2018 03:05:14
Yes I did say that lol.

Ah sorry didn't mean to speculate a straight up deal was in talks. I take that part back. But blues would have included Petro in talks for Nylander and the Leafs decided not to go after it. Not sure if it was a straight up deal. But that does show you the Leafs valued Ny a little more and that packages couldn't be worked out to make it work.

Lmao n Petro with one year left DOES NOT get you Nylander, Liljegren and a 1st. Talk about over value.

Saying Mete isn't a good D man is pretty funny and shows how clueless you can be Colt. We get it you wouldn't want to do this trade because your biased to your guy and all, but to say the other player just isn't good is so bad. He's got potential for sure, still young and developing and has a good projection.

Tons of reports out there saying the Blues have informed teams that everyone is available, including Senko and Petro. Get used to this. Once the Blues do make some trades it will just show how bad your evaluations of your players are, just like the Shattenkirk deal.
