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?

Just don't look at his wife. He may beat you with his lunch box size paws.

4.) 30 Oct 2018 20:16:54
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.

10.) 31 Oct 2018 04:49:26
I didn’t know that Boom Boom. I thought I was losing my job and was going for a trade. I hope it works out for you.

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.

Well day 29 in Vegas and I'm finally going home! Been an insane month. Lol.
I might be back on here a little more now again. Was a good break away tho!


1.) 26 Jan 2019 02:50:34
Cool stuff. Travel safe. What are you working on up there?



06 Jan 2019 20:01:15
Been in Vegas for 11 days now and finally getting to a VGK game! Tried to go to the New Year's Day game but was sold out. This place is a great party! So glad they took to hockey here in Vegas, a great first year helped for sure. But they love the Knights all over the city here.


1.) 06 Jan 2019 20:49:30
Standing O for the warm ups. Club music pumping. Vegas show girls at the glass on the NJ Devils side for the entire warm ups. This atmosphere in here is unreal. So much more fun than boring corporate Aeneas like Tor, Edm, Van.

2.) 06 Jan 2019 21:51:05
And on top of that the team is actually doing good again this year which is still surprising the heck out of me.

3.) 06 Jan 2019 22:24:46
Who else has been to a game in Vegas? And how did you like it.

4.) 07 Jan 2019 03:04:16
I've been to Vegas 3 times 1st two times I won close to 95,000 combined last time I lost about 35,000$ I promised myself after the last time I would never go back again lol.

5.) 07 Jan 2019 09:46:22
How does anyone spend 11 days in Vegas?!

6.) 07 Jan 2019 19:51:38
lol yeah I’m with Chirp on this one. not sure my wallet or liver could handle 11 days there. yupp must be in beast mode.

7.) 08 Jan 2019 00:08:10
I come a lot. Play poker semi professionally. Came down with a bunch of buddies and partied for New Years, I'm just on a one way ticket and running very good. Might go home a few days tomorrow, huge convention in town this week. Comped rooms whenever I come. I love this place.
That VGK game atmosphere was so damn cool tho, I highly recommend any of you to travel here for your teams game here.
I might come for 2 weeks when the Oilers play here twice in 15 days March 16 and April 2.



16 Dec 2018 17:03:03
Of all the names out there and what not.
I think
-Carter is a good fit in Boston.
-Petro is a good fit for Colorado.
-Mizzin or Senko is a good for for Montreal but might not have enough in the cupboards to get Senko.
-Parayko a good fit for Edm or Tor. He's going home to Edm is my dream. Haha
-Hayes a good fit for SJ or Wash or Buff (? )
-Not sure what's going to happen with Panarin and goalie Bob. CLB just keeps them for the playoff run then lose them for nothing? Probably i'm guessing.
-Kapanen+ for Pesce makes sense for both teams.


1.) 16 Dec 2018 17:59:52
So blues lose three of their best players. Completely gut their defense. Doesn't make sense.

2.) 16 Dec 2018 18:21:44
Colorado has there best two D, Johnson and Barrie on the right side. Along with Zarorov and Girard on the left. Also Makar and Timmons coming up. I just don’t see Petro as a need. More scoring depth is there top need IMO.

3.) 16 Dec 2018 18:27:07
No way Petro or Paryanko is traded within conference more likely he’s bought out then traded to Edmonton unless it’s a massive overpayment.

4.) 16 Dec 2018 18:30:41
Pretty sure Habs don't have enough to get Tarasenko.
Read that Duncan Keith would/ could be a good fit in Montreal. , not sure about that, only way is if we could somehow convince Hawks to take Alzner contract with whatever Habs would offer. and then it kind of defeats the reason Hawks would trade him anyway.
I think Blues shouldn't go crazy and start selling. they need to make Hockey trades for today, not the future.
I think Parayko would be a good fit on Leafs or Oilers, like ya said, however, he seems to get a little to much hype I believe. yes he's good, but sometimes on here it sounds like he is Chris Pronger.
I do like the Muzzin idea. if the price was decent.

5.) 16 Dec 2018 19:33:08
-If STL wants to retool and re stock their cupboard they would get a lot for their players. It's definetely true that their players could be available.
-Ya no players have ever been trade within heir conference before 🙄🙄😳. Lol.
-I've read the Kieths name out there possibly today too. Intersting one there.
-and I'm not saying these guys are getting traded. In just saying that their names are out there and some teams should be going after them if in fact they are available. That's all.

6.) 16 Dec 2018 20:46:51
Vbb are you just over exaggerating again?
With that thinking why did your own team trade their Captain Dion to the Sens or Kessell to Pittsburgh?
Teams do make trades within conferences man. They wouldn't limit themselves to half the teams in the league.

7.) 17 Dec 2018 01:47:47
Different situation all together Dion is trash and they were just trying to dump him to any team and Kessel went to the highest bidder because they knew they weren’t going to compete in the recent future.

8.) 17 Dec 2018 12:33:24
Vb limiting yourself to half the league is how you get trash for Erik Karlsson. Could the Blues? Sure. But if they are retooling/ rebuilding and aren’t going to compete for a few years ignore the no trading within conference bull and get the best package you can. Not trading in division or conference is the dumbest most overrated thing in sports.

9.) 17 Dec 2018 19:27:59
Colt, he didn’t even mention the returns lol he said where good fits would be. What if each of those players were getting you 2 top prospects and a roster player and multiple 1st rounders like you seem to think they will. Would you still say trading them is stupid for the Blues?



14 Dec 2018 21:09:36
TSN Official has a trade bait list up.
1. Colton Parayko
2. Jake Muzzin
3. Kevin Hayes
4. Brett Pesce
5. Jeff Carter.


1.) 14 Dec 2018 23:40:39
Suprised by Parayko, as well suprised no Stone, Duchene or Simmonds, however other than Parayko, the other names seem like they have been on the go all season.
Also, what's going in SJ with Karlsson? Will he sign? ,

2.) 15 Dec 2018 01:31:41
I thought it was interesting that Carter would consider retirement if traded. I would’ve thought he’d want to go to a contender and he would be a great pick up for any team.

3.) 15 Dec 2018 02:57:10
Lots of big name players going to maybe have new teams and going to be UFA or are possibly trade candidates. It's going to be crazy.
Stone. Duchene. Simmonds. Bobrovsky. Panarin. Maybe some Blues, Rangers, Kings, Flyers Big names? 🤔
Also some huge RFAa to sign massive deals. Rantanen. Mathews. Marner. Tkuchuk. Boeser.

4.) 15 Dec 2018 17:28:35
Paryanko to Toronto makes way to much sense. That’s a draft move.

5.) 15 Dec 2018 23:15:25
Parayko is a local Edm boy, him coming home makes more sense bud. Sorry 😜😜.

6.) 16 Dec 2018 03:15:34
Leafs desperately need. a RHd and you’re crazy if you think a star player is traded within conference.

7.) 16 Dec 2018 03:24:09
Lmao. Ya, no star player has ever been traded to a team in his own conference before! 🙄🙄🙄. That made me laugh Mr. Over exaggerater. Good one.

8.) 16 Dec 2018 17:51:54
Parayko is a really good player to go after. He’s not the type of guy you avoid trading within a conference lol some guys don’t want to trade to a direct rival and I get it, but look how that turned out for Ottawa with Hoffman lol you trade him where you’re going to get the best return and move on.



09 Dec 2018 07:26:50
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.
