New York Islanders:
Brock Nelson+David Quenneville

Minnesota Wild:
Jonas Brodin+5th pick (2019)

With Boychuk aging, Islanders could use defensive help. Minnesota could use some extra scoring and Nelson's contract isn't as much a burden.

05 Aug 2018 17:17:31
And Minnesota does this why?

*cold shivers*.

04 Aug 2018 19:02:33
i don't see them giving up on lilegren this early, i see him as a solid top 4 in a couple years for them.

04 Aug 2018 20:16:07
Leafs take this for sure.

05 Aug 2018 17:20:28
Ya and Minnesota doesn’t ya hope the Liljegren can be half the player spurgeon is and nino is better then a late first a bum brown and sparks.

27 Jul 2018 19:28:11

Oliver Ekman-Larsson - Niklas Hjarlmarsson
Jonas Brodin - Jason Demers
Trevor Murphy - Kevin Connauton

27 Jul 2018 20:50:52
no way for Panarin trade! I'd say 1st and 2nd round plus that prospect.

27 Jul 2018 22:04:24
Arizona does not touch Parise ( 33 ) at 7.1 mil for 7 more seasons.

27 Jul 2018 23:19:03
Holy Christ no from Columbus.

28 Jul 2018 01:41:03
Don't think panarin wants to resign in zona, apparently he wants to go to a big market team for his girlfriends model career.

10 Jul 2018 21:42:53
Word is Montreal isn't going to extend pacciorety. They are going to trade Him ASAP

Montreal: Pacciorety
Penguins: Carl Hagelin, Zach Aston Reese, 2019 2nd, 2019 4th, Conditional 2021 2nd (if Pacciorety resigns)

Montreal: Pacciorety, conditional 2019 4th ( if pacciorety doesn't resign, pick becomes 3rd)
Wild: Erickson Ek, 2019 1st

Pacciorety value is at a low. Coming off a terrible season(for him), 1year left, and teams know that Montreal isn't going to resign him, so they have to trade him

10 Jul 2018 22:06:50
Montreal would pass on both of those. But it’s MB so you never know.

10 Jul 2018 23:56:03
It’s terrible asset management. They make it known they don’t want him. That loses leverage anyway, but then to hold a press conference preaching attitude and character over skill, then next time news comes out of MBs office it’s saying patches isn’t welcome back. So not only did they lose leverage, but now they raise red flags about pacciorettys character (that may or may not be true) to some teams that otherwise might have been interested. Some teams will not inquire about him, or offer far less if they think he could be a problem.

Like Sens holding onto Hoffman for a better offer at the deadline, knowing all this dressing room crap was going on, and then sold him at pennies on the dollar when it hit the news. But this isn’t media releasing a bad story, this is MB devaluing his own captain lol.

11 Jul 2018 01:42:05
Think the Minnesota one isn't bad, get a 1st and a decent player, think that's really all they can expect at this point. Be better if it was expected to be a higher pick. Maybe a little more especially if there's a contract agreement.

11 Jul 2018 02:10:09
No Jim it's mostly media. You should know about that.

11 Jul 2018 02:31:40
With regards to Hoffman if the Sens did know about this they would have had to disclose this info to the other teams they were trying to trade him to. and if for some reason they could lie that they didn't know and get away with it it would still be frowned upon by all the other gms the same way an offer sheet is when it did come out.

11 Jul 2018 02:33:17
There has been 500 pacioretty rumors this summer by people claiming to have a source but none have actually happened. People must remember the media in montreal is bad when things are going well look out when they are not.

11 Jul 2018 09:22:47
Not enough from Pittsburgh and too much from Minnesota IMO.

11 Jul 2018 12:30:12
too much from pittsburgh
and i'd say yes from minnesota provided the 1st is lottery protected (close 2019 or 2020)

11 Jul 2018 13:43:35
The Pitt trade is atrocious for Montreal.
The minny trade I can’t see them making that at all.

11 Jul 2018 13:45:08
If that's what i'm getting for patches in keeping him ans hoppin to extended or get more at dealine. But not worth lettint him for hopes. Need something now if in letting e0 goals walk out this season.

11 Jul 2018 15:24:17
@Habby, I don’t think there’s any rule about disclosing wife drama like a physical injury lol but even if they were to disclose it in private trade talks, it would have been a lot better for Dorian to talk to chirelli or whoever and say “the dressing room is split, 1 of 2 guys has to go, hoffman is one of them, what’s your offer? ” And move him then.

Because instead, they played hardball, it hits the fan, now a media circus is going to follow him, as where if he was traded 1500 miles away before it went public, karlssons wife maybe wouldn’t have had to follow through on the legal stuff. And Sens fan base wouldn’t have more ammo to hurl at Dorian and Melnyk for losing yet another trade.

11 Jul 2018 15:30:43
And if there’s this many rumblings of a fractured relationship between paccioretty and the habs management, there’s a decent chance that more concrete evidence of that could come out in the coming weeks. And depending what that info is, could affect his trade value. Don’t want to be like the senators, no one wants to be like the senators right now lol.

11 Jul 2018 16:04:21
Yes jim but I think we can both agree that there is usually a lot more goes on behind the scenes that me or you or any of the insiders know. Sometimes you got to ask yourself who is this source that everyone talks about? Sources close to a team that could actually leak true info would not do so because if they were caught they would be fired. why would someone in that situation leak info to a 2nd rate reporter so he could put it in a newspaper for everyone to see. i'm sure a few things about pacioretty may have some merit but I'm willing to bet 99% don't it's purely speculation based on what people think will happen. With regards to Hoffman if Dorian and crew knew there was a chance karlsons wife was considering pressing charges against Hoffmann (wife) then yes this would have to been brought to the attention of the other team.

11 Jul 2018 16:39:54
If there is a fractured relationship it's because patch wants more on his new deal then montreal wants to pay. Pretty simple really and that happens a lot it's just this being a more then usual boring summer with not much to talk about it's being blown up in montreal. Notice when everyone though karlsson would be traded last week there was zero talk about pacioretty lol. or when the tavares saga was going on. People looking for news is all it is. The same thing is going on that has been since last December with pacioretty his name is out there and bergevin is listening to offers. If he gets an offer he likes he will trade him. you can paint it in any way you like but we all said the same things about duchene and sakic done pretty good in that deal. As of now if patch doesn't resign he will be a ufa after this year and will be traded as such. So does he have more trade value now or if he was resigned at 8 year 8 mil per? My guess is he has more value now. Does that mean the habs will get huge haul for him. Probably not. But they should be able to get something that will help them moving forward. Picks or prospects is my hope.

11 Jul 2018 16:44:02
Yeah. I think The Athletic is a pretty good outlet, seem to have some connections and smart people employed. But It’s not criminal charges that she brought against them. It’s a protection order saying she can’t contact her. It’s a civil matter. Cody Ceci’s wife threw a flaming bottle of gasoline on a another woman (accidentally, but what else can possibly happen in Ottawa this summer?!?! ) and the woman was fighting for her life and she has had like 15 or 20 surgeries. Almost guaranteed a lawsuit will come from that too but again it will be a civil matter, no criminal charges and I doubt it has to be disclosed.

Regardless, we will see. Paccioretty has said he wants to stay and a as willing to sign 8 years (Montreal Gazette) but when he’s traded, more of the story will come out, and I’m willing to bet that a real story of a very fractured relationship will emerge.

11 Jul 2018 19:25:04
It could happen jim I'm not going to rule that out. I just think at this time it's just more of a contract thing then anything else. could Possibly be friction between patch and other players on team though. This summer seems more rampant with loose rumors and texts from sources which have been proven wrong then other years to me. i think it comes from this years uneventful draft and mediocre free agent class making very few headlines. To me now unless I hear straight from bob mckenzie or elliote friedman I don't even listen to it.

11 Jul 2018 19:41:13
But on the note of things being disclosed everything is suppose to be disclosed that you are aware of concerning the player your trading. legal matters drinking or partying habits, locker room feuds injuries etc. all could be assumed to affect the players performance as could the legal matter. Off ice issues can be a wide range of things if the other gm asks about a players situation. when trade negotiations are taking place how often do you think the other gm asks why are you trading him? How's that knee injury? Is there any truth about these rumors? A Gm don't just say we'll he's a good player let's see if we can get him, without doing their homework first. I remember when the habs traded mike riberio for janne ninnima there was hardly any talk of riberios drinking problem at the time but gainey had to disclose that info to other Gms and that's the only offer he got. i know it's not the same as the Hoffman case but gainey could have kept quiet about it and got another deal elsewhere and just waited for the other team to find out. But I'm pretty sure the other team then could have filed a grievance to the league and got compensated.

09 Jul 2018 14:54:40
Word is Panarin doesn't want to stay in Columbus.

Columbus: Panarin

Wild: Jason Zucker (signed 5M/4Years), Joel Erickson Ek, 2019 2nd

09 Jul 2018 15:24:15
only if Minny can extend panarin which I don’t think they can because sounds like he wants to go to a bigger market because his gf is a model.

09 Jul 2018 17:09:58
It's because he doesn't want to live in Ohio. Not because he doesn't like the team.
Think he would like Minnesota if he doesn't like Ohio. I'm going to guess no.
He wants New York or Florida type place to live.

09 Jul 2018 17:29:19
These rumours were shut down, his gf did not model the last 3 years, it said.

09 Jul 2018 19:09:23
Apparently she wants to get back into modeling and his agent was covering it up for some reason.

07 Jul 2018 04:12:48
Ottawa trades: Karlsson, smith

Tampa trades: Johnson, gourde, Foote, Raddyish, Dotchin, 1st 2019, 2nd 2019

Just taking a wild guess on what it would take for this trade. What do y'all think?

07 Jul 2018 05:18:39
Take out Like Gourde and the 2nd.

07 Jul 2018 06:53:10
Thats waaaay too much

07 Jul 2018 08:58:12
Lol maybe want Kuch, Point, Serg and Vasy as well? Sure, take'em.

07 Jul 2018 14:03:34
This is the type of trade it’ll be in the way it’ll be lots of quantity.

07 Jul 2018 15:58:59
I think any team trading for Karlsson would also have to include a couple of 1st round picks on top of a package that includes a young very good roster player and at least 2 or 3 A prospects. As a team gets close to a deal other teams will try to up their offer so in the end he will bring back a very good haul for the Senators.

07 Jul 2018 15:38:04
TAMPA can’t can't trade 2019 1st or second the year are attached to the mcd trade If Tampa wins cup nyr gets 1st if Tampa doesn’t win the cup nyr gets 2nd.

06 Jul 2018 04:12:59
If Tampa is trying to acquire Karlsson and keep Core:

TBL:5th round pick
NYR:Ryan Callahan (5.8Mx2)+2nd round pick

TBL:4th round pick
CBJ:Dan Girardi (3Mx1)+6th round pick

TBL:6th round pick
MIN:Brayden Coburn (3.7Mx1)+7th round pick

TBL:2nd round pick+3rd round pick
CAR:Tyler Johnson (5Mx6)

They free up 17.5M assuming they all waive their NTC

Sign and Trade

TBL:Karlsson (11Mx7)
OTT:Foote, Raddysh, Katchouk,2020 1st round pick,2021 2nd round pick

Is this enough for a signed Karlsson?

Next Years Lineup:




06 Jul 2018 05:16:21
Why would Tampa do a sign and trade and not get 8 years.

06 Jul 2018 05:59:55
Im with Kobalis seems a little too much for giving up their future.. ottawa would need to take back a roster player with a reasonable salary

06 Jul 2018 10:51:06
I agreed on the 8 years and added my own input lol sounded dumb for a sec

06 Jul 2018 13:52:03
Kucherov couldn’t resign ( assuming he won’t take less then Karlsson ) after resigning McDonagh it kinda took away to add a star long term. My guess is he’ll just be a rental.

06 Jul 2018 14:26:04
Not even close for Karlsson. point sergachev and a 1st is a good starting point.

06 Jul 2018 15:19:24
Talks last night was kucherov could be traded elsewhere to make room for Karlsson and also recoup assets used to acquire Karlsson. As a leaf fan, I would be happy to see Tampa get Karlsson if it means lose kucherov. Karlsson is amazing, but with Hedman, McD, stralman and Sergachev, their blueline is already great. If they lose Kuch upfront, I’m much happier facing them. Without Kuch, If stamkos ever gets hurt or sick again, they’re so thin up front. Looking like 2 powerhouses in the Atlantic for years, I’d rather our crazy good forwards and weaker D face a great D core and weak forwards than a team with multiple game breakers up front and on the back end.

06 Jul 2018 15:26:32
Ottawa better insist that Sergachev be in the deal.

06 Jul 2018 15:32:08
On a lot of teams Karlsson can immediately make them twice as good. I don’t think that’s the case with Tampa. If he wants to be there, they should definitely try to make it work, but by the time they lose other good players, and pay assets to dump contracts, I honestly don’t know how much better they are overall. But interesting for sure. Especially if this happens, Karlssons wife will need to re-do a restraining order for the state of Florida because after sending Hoffman 1500miles away, they will be a cpl hours apart again and playing head to head opening night lol.

06 Jul 2018 16:09:40
@Unbiased Jim the idea seems ridiculous Stamkos + Kuch is a ridiculous line I’d rather keep kuch and run with the lineup they have. There team would look very similar to Nashville with Karlsson in- Kuch out.

06 Jul 2018 17:41:01
If they lose kuch just to get karlson they are idiots. I'd sooner trade stamkos then kucherov.

06 Jul 2018 18:04:54
@Habby, agreed. Stacking D is great if you can do it. But look at teams with what’s looked at as the deepest D cores in the league for the last 3-4 years (Calgary, Carolina, Anaheim, Nashville) and what they have accomplished. Only Nashville has had any success to speak of. As where teams with decent-good D cores but multiple game breakers up front (penguins, capitals, bruins, Tampa) have had far more success going deeper or even winning cups.

06 Jul 2018 19:45:15
A team only really need 2-3 really solid defensemen with 3 being okay. They’ll handle all the minutes, it’s at forward is where you need the fire power to keep pressuring and getting those scoring opportunities to win a cup imo need the depth up front for sure.

06 Jul 2018 20:08:24
Yeah if they were lacking on d I could almost see it but they should be ok I would think.

06 Jul 2018 20:10:23
100 point scorers don't exactly grow on trees these days lol.

06 Jul 2018 23:38:05
Only thing that makes sense to me is that Tampa has been the favourite in the division for a while. When leafs added Tavares and all the talk was that teams would have to put their top D on either Matthews or Tavares leaving the other one with an easy night.

Maybe this is yzermans way of responding. Then they can have Karlsson and hedman play together and dominate against the majority of teams and then separate them to match up against Tavares/ Matthews, Baxkstrom/ Kuznetsov and Crosby/ Malkin etc.

04 Jul 2018 18:33:33
Habs: Max Pacioretty

Wild: Dumba

Pacioretty has lost value, last year I would have thought this deal was crazy. Montreal desperately needs D Dumba would be on the first pair. Minny has lots of good d and forwards. Pacioretty could complete the top six
Kouvi -Parise- Pacioretty ( beast line)
Coyle/ stall - niderettor- zucker ( one of best top six in the nhl.

04 Jul 2018 19:31:06
Won't work for Habs as they need a L Shot D Dumba shoots R.

04 Jul 2018 19:38:47
Dumba isn’t going anywhere.

04 Jul 2018 19:47:05
I don’t know if I never appreciated how good Dumba was, or if he never played as good as he did i that first round series against the Jets. But he was really impressive. If habs could get him I think it would be a good deal for both. Only I believe he’s a RHD, a player like him to play LD with Weber would be better.

04 Jul 2018 22:18:08
Still guys MONTREAL NEEDS D EITHER WAY😂😂 even if it’s the wrong hand.

05 Jul 2018 04:03:44
Overvaluing Pacioretty.

05 Jul 2018 04:44:12
@dangle, I said it was a good move for Montreal regardless, but LHD makes MORE sense. When your best d makes 7.5 mill and is RHD, common sense says “get him a partner”. Never said they can’t use a good RHD though.

05 Jul 2018 16:49:24
Ok but still why does Minnesota do it? Dumba is younger, better, and a defenseman which Minnesota has zero in their farm system! I guess though if it helps Canadian teams you guys don’t care! Start thinking before ya guys post or respond to this garbage.

05 Jul 2018 17:46:48
I don't understand how a lot of people undervalue pacioretty . yet will go bonkers over a guy like nylander. Makes no sense.

05 Jul 2018 19:12:48
Probably because Nylander is 20 already more effective then Patches and on a ELC. Where as Patches is a pending UFA coming of his worst season.

05 Jul 2018 20:09:26
Because Nylander put up 61 pts in 81 games with a +20 making 900k at 20 years old and is under team control for 7 more years. Patches put up 37 pts in 61 games with a -16 making 4.5mill and is under team control for less than a calendar year. I don’t understand how people don’t see he’s worth more lol.

06 Jul 2018 01:39:09
Nylander plays with Matthews or Kardi. Pacioretty plays with Danualt or an even worst center. Also completely different playing styles to compare them. Nylander is a playmaker and pacioretty is goal scorer.

06 Jul 2018 13:58:00
The funny part about people with the Pacioretty talks is you have to actually look at what he's done with who he did it with. He's been a consistent 30+ goals 60+ points (yes he had one bad year) with very little help.

03 Jul 2018 06:02:09
• (C) Nazem Kadri
• (D) Justin Faulk

• (C) Connor Brown
• (D) Travis Dermott
• (2019) 1st Round-Pick
• (D) Jonas Brodin

Morgan Rielly - Justin Faulk
Jonas Brodin - Nikita Zaitsev
Jake Gardiner - Ron Hainsey

03 Jul 2018 12:43:10
i like it but i don't think toronto would want to give up dermott.

03 Jul 2018 15:25:08
Not a chance Toronto makes either of those moves. Brutal.

03 Jul 2018 15:40:56
The Kadri for Faulk one makes an ounce of sense but I wouldn’t do it. But Connor brown is a great 3rd lone who can chip in 15-20 goals and kills penalties lock in at 2mill at only 24, dermott at 21 is our brightest light on D on a cheap contract (something we now really need) . That second trade is awful.

03 Jul 2018 16:15:44
Don’t wanna break up that center depth. And as for the 2nd Trade I’d try to switch Brodin with Dumba.

28 Jun 2018 19:41:32
Wild- nino niederreiter 500k retained 4.75 cap to oil

Oil- zach kassian, Shane starrett, 2019 1st round pick.

28 Jun 2018 20:20:22
somethig other than the 1st. 1sts are way to valuable now a days.

28 Jun 2018 20:30:42
Nino is far too good for that offer. He has a lot more value to his team than just offensive stats. The guy ia an all round player. Highly underated.

28 Jun 2018 20:42:42
The first is used to close the gap of quality of player and also for wild to retain the 500k. I built a team with that trade and needed the savings to get my 23 man roster.

28 Jun 2018 22:02:11
need the first rounder in there or wild don’t bother lol you’re trading a good 4th liner/ okay 3rd line player and an ECHL goalie for a 25 year old with 20, 24, 25 and 18 goals (missed 20 games) in last 4 years and a bit of salary retention. You can’t just give them your garbage for it lol.

29 Jun 2018 16:48:50
Unbiased Jim what you don’t understand is oilers garbage is others teams gold lol but honestly would you guys trade nuge for Winnik, a no name prospect and Minnesota’s 2019 1st. didn’t think so.

29 Jun 2018 18:16:56
@vbb it seems to go in cycles. They’re extremely reasonable for a while and then hey get fixated on one player and all of a sudden he worth 5x what any normal thinking fan would believe. Then slowly goes back to normal. It was Ethan Bear for a bit, then there was another that escapes me right now, then it was Yamamoto after that. It’ll come back to earth.

29 Jun 2018 18:25:48
2 days ago I was told that yamamoto was the biggest steal of the draft at 22nd lol ahead of liljegren at 17th who won a championship playing top 4 min while being youngest player in the AHL. Ahead of Morgan Frost who shredded the OHL and dragged the greyhounds to the finals (picked 27th) and ahead of Tolvanen at 30 who tore up the KHL and will be a top 6 on Nashville this October.

“Yamamoto would have been top 5 if he was bigger” lol don’t give me that crap on the same week Martin St Louis is a hall famer. Teams aren’t ignorant to that anymore. The game is built for small, skilled, fast players. It wouldn’t have made a difference.

30 Jun 2018 00:17:47
Minnesota wouldn’t budge with that first rounder they would have to take someone like Ennis or parise (which I know wouldn’t happen) to even make them think of that! Why lose a good player for slobs!

28 Jun 2018 19:37:48
Wild- Coyle
Oil- Caleb Jones, 2019 2nd round pick.

28 Jun 2018 20:47:25
Would love that but got to clear out a roster player as well, but could see minny rejecting.

28 Jun 2018 21:41:42
No from Minnesota.

30 Jun 2018 00:15:04
Minnesota would laugh at you! It’ll take that bum nudge for Minnesota to even think about it.

23 Jun 2018 14:27:45
EDM- 40th, 71st
BUF- 32nd

EDM drafts Noel or Wilde.

23 Jun 2018 19:00:27
Lol Wilde went 41st.

06 Jun 2018 22:01:43
Canucks trade: baertschi, tanev, Nilsson

Islanders trade: Ladd, 12th overall, 1st round pick 2019

Sign Jt

Lee Jt Bailey
Beauvillier barzal eberle
Baertschi Nelson prince
Johnson Wagner clutterbuck

Leddy tanev
Boychuk pulock
Hickey Davidson


Then Canucks trade 7th overall and 4th round pick for hanifin

Draft Wilde or smith at 12


07 Jun 2018 00:44:44
look Kodes77 no one has interest in these players when you make a trade think about if you were a fan of the other team if you would do it.
Your trades look really biased and pretty bad tbh.

03 Jun 2018 03:31:12
Jake Gardiner (D - 4.2 Million x 1 Year; Extension - 5.25 Million x 4 Years) + Jeremy Bracco (RW -ELC) + 2018 1st Round Draft Selection (#25) to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Matt Benning (D - RFA; Extension - 2.4 Million x 4 Years) + 2018 1st Round Draft Selection (#10).

- Edmonton upgrades bigtime on defence, and gets their true offensive dman, who, if played on the top PP unit, could be a perennial 50-60 point man as McDavid’s point man. He may be suspect defensively, but that's because he doesn’t have support on defence; Edmonton has Darnell Nurse that can compliment Gardiner’s ‘wild’ style well.
- Toronto downgrades in general in defence, but gets a dman of need: a more defensively sound dman. They upgrade in terms of picks, and thus, that pick can be traded for more defensive assets for the ‘now’.

2018 1st Round Draft Selection (#10 - From Edmonton) + Calvin Pickard (G - 1.0 Million x 1 Year) to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Jake Muzzin (D - 4.0 Million x 2 Years) .

- Los Angeles, despite being involved in Phil Kessel trade rumors, should really be looking at a solid rebuild, and should be trading some of their veterans in order to acquire higher picks. They also acquire a decently young backup goalie who could probably fetch decent value at the 2019 trade deadline.
- Toronto acquires their true top pairing shutdown dman. Muzzins older than most of Toronto’s team, but he provides excellent shutdown prowess, and a solid veteran presence. Muzzin is not necessarily a household name, but he's a solid, veteran dman who would improve Toronto vastly.

(Basically, Gardiner + Bracco + Pickard + #25 for Muzzin + Benning; imo, that's not too far off, Gardiner [w. extension] + #25 gets Muzzin, Bracco and Pickard gets Benning)

Austin Czarnik - 1.5 Million x 3 Years

Edm doesn't need another LEFT handed D man. Come on people. Nurse. Klefbom. Russell. Sekera. Now Gardiner? And Matt Benning isn't good enough for your second pairing.
Oilers aren't giving you 10th overall for leftie Gardiner. Sorry.

03 Jun 2018 12:36:19
I would just rather trade it for Muzzin than Gardiner. Lol.

03 Jun 2018 13:09:34
I see where your coming from, but a lot of articles that I’ve read, at least for Toronto, aaid that although a #1 RHD is a priority, a #1 d in general is a priority, albeit RHD or LHD. because you can try and play people off-hand. Should be the same with Edmonton, a 1 offensive dman should be their number 1 priority, because a #1 RHD offensive dman limits the amount of players, and often, you’d find RHD worth more simply because of this. I’m pretty sure you can get players to play offhand and it won't be too bad tbh, but idk.

But Gardiner and 25 for 10 isn't that bad, is it?

03 Jun 2018 13:37:03
I’d rather keep the 10th overall rather then trade it for Muzzin. Also I agree with yup on this one Edmonton is pretty stacked with LHD although he’d instantly become their top pp dman. Gardiner would be on the Bottom pairing with sheltered offensive zone starts.

31 May 2018 23:47:50
Det: 1st round pick 2018 (#6)
NYI: 1st round pick 2018 (#12)+Ho-Sang+Dal Colle

Holland said he was up to trading the 6th pick for the right price. Maybe Ho-Sang and Dal Colle can become the players they were supposed to be with a new team and plus they could draft Kotkaniemi or Ty Smith. The islanders can move up and maybe draft Quinn Hughes, Wahlstrom or Boqvist in order to convince Tavares to stay . Plus they still keep the 13th pick amd maybe draft Wilde or Veleno.

01 Jun 2018 02:52:40
Holy Christ easy yes from Detroit if they are willing to take guys with potential.

31 May 2018 01:54:33
Vancouver Canucks:

- Jesse Puljujarvi (RW)

Edmonton Oilers:

- Chris Tanev (D)

- William Lockwood (RW)

- Sven Baertschi (LW)

Canucks get a top prospect, that should get a lot of playing time on the Canucks. A RW with his size and scoring ability should be what a lot of teams want in the Western Conference.

Chris Tanev and Sven Baertschi boost the Oilers lineup. I know that it's too early, but IMO, the Jesse Puljujarvi project hasn't worked out that well in Edmonton.

William Lockwood is a wildcard. He's locked up in the NCAA for another couple of years but seems to be a good scorer. He was injured this season, so we couldn't see much of him.

02 Jun 2018 23:08:13
Way to much for a project prospect. Puljujarvi is a RW as well and Canucks need left wingers, already have Boeser on the right side.

02 Jun 2018 23:52:22
Haha, maybe the canucks can throw in the #7 pick as well. I will counter with
Nurse, Draisatal and their 1st round pick

Edmonton, Ericksson, Gaunce.

28 May 2018 11:18:30
Canucks trade: Baertschi, Dipietro, 2nd round pick 2018

Canes trade: Hanifin


Canucks trade: Edler, Granlund, 3rd round pick 2018

Wild trade: foligno, 1st round pick 2018

Draft Dobson at #7

Dahlen Pettersson Lind
Leipsic Horvat Boeser
Foligno Gaudette Virtanen
Goldobin Sutter dowd

Hanifin Dobson
Juolevi Tanev
Pouliot stetcher


Would these trades be fair? Canucks would look real good in the future

28 May 2018 15:29:11
Love how you throw Dobson right into the fire
Btw if you ever want Hannifin start with Petterson
Add from there.

28 May 2018 18:42:54
These lines holy hahahaha. But wow you really hate baertschi always wanting to trade him in every single post.

29 May 2018 00:12:42
Keyhabs, start with Pettersson. c'mon now.

29 May 2018 00:14:53
Lmao that's the worst line attempts, i ever seen where's gagner erikson and guddy.

29 May 2018 00:19:00
@Keyhabs, I like Hanifin as much as the next guy, the kids a beast, but your beyond crazy if you think you can get Pettersson + for him, I wouldn’t even trade Pettersson straight up for Hanifin.

I’m not saying Pettersson is going to be another McDavid or Crosby, not at all, but his potential is out of this world and he can easily be A LOT better than most people think, and I’d rather keep Pettersson and see if he can grow into this crazy potential he’s shown than trade him + other stuff for Hanifin.

29 May 2018 04:37:40
The other team says no for both trades. That Hanifin one in particular is horrendous. 5th overall pick stud defenseman 21 years old for bottom 6 scrap pieces? Brutal.

29 May 2018 05:57:08
Stammer what do you mean bottom 6 scrap?
Baertschi is a top 6 winger in Carolina without a doubt, and Dipietro was voted as the best goalie in the ohl this season and what does Carolina need right now? Scoring wingers and a better goalie. The second is very close to being a late first round pick. I’m not saying this package is going to land Hanifin but it’s a good start and may be a small add away like another pick that isn’t a first rounder.

27 May 2018 20:25:45
Wild trade: Spurgeon, Coyle, Parise, 1st round pick

Pens trade: Letang, Kessel

Thought I'd give er a try

27 May 2018 23:49:00
Uhhhh going to be a no from pitt.

28 May 2018 01:28:25
No way pens take on Parise.

24 May 2018 17:56:49
Minnesota Trades: Jared Spurgeon, Jason Zucker and Nino Niederreiter
Carolina Trades: Justin Faulk, Brett Pesce and 1st 2019.

24 May 2018 19:43:58
Not one player minny is trading is better than what Carolina is trading lol.

24 May 2018 23:04:26
Mcjesus you might be the dumbest person on here! Sorry Brock.

25 May 2018 03:02:01
I actually agree madeindade28 sorry man but if you take Faulk over Spurgeon you’re out to lunch. Pesce is good tho this is a no from Carolina. Slavin and Pesce should be there only untouchables. And Aho.

25 May 2018 15:55:02
Faulk and Spurgeon May be close, I’d rather Spurgeon. But the others are ripping off canes badly.

21 May 2018 15:55:25
Matt Martin (LW - 2.5 Million x 2 Years - 25% Salary Retention) and 2018 4th Round Selection to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Tyler Ennis (C/ LW - 4.2 Million x 1 Year)

- Similar contracts and cap totals being swapped; one at less of a hit for an additional cost. Martin is worse than Ennis, so the pick is added, however, Ennis’ production for his cap hit is pretty worrisome. Toronto needs more cap hit for the 2019/ 20 season because of Matthews&Marner’s contracts, so they can afford the pricy tag for Ennis for the next year. If Minny wants free agents, then it makes more sense for them to take the cheaper contract, albeit for an extra year.

Jake Gardiner (D - 4.05 Million x 1 Year) to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Connor Murphy (D - 3.85 Million x 4 Years) and 2018 3rd Round Selection.

- Chicago could use an offensively minded dman, Toronto could use a defensive oriented one. Although Murphy has a longer term, and is locked down for longer, Gardiner is the superior dman based on the previous seasons statistics, and that's why Chicago adds the 3rd Round Pick. Gardiner could be useful alongside a true DFD like Brent Seabrook, and Murphy could partner well with Morgan Rielly.

2018 3rd Round Selection (Chicago) + Curtis McElhinney (G - 0.8 Million x 1 Year) + 2019 4th Round Selection to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Valeri Nichushkin (LW - Rights - Contract Extension: 2.25 Million x 3 Years) .

- Dallas acquires two draft picks and a cheap backup goalie to aid Ben Bishop, in order to not overplay him during the season. Mac played better than Lehtonen, and tbh, Dallas needs to move on from him. Toronto acquires a wild card: a guy who was a 30 point man in his first stint in the NHL, and a guy who has been 0.5 PPG in the KHL. He could be great alongside Auston, or could bust out, be worse than Connor Brown, and then defect back to Russia.

2018 2nd Round Selection + Josh Leivo (RW - 0.75 Million x 1 Year) to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Samuel Morin (D - RFA - Contract Extension: 1.5 Million x 2 Years) + 2018 5th Round Selection.

- Philly has a ton of young dmen (Prov, Ghost, Hagg, Sanheim, Myers), as well as some veterans such as Gudas, so Morin seems expandable, especially since his growth has somewhat stunted in Phillys farm system. Its possible he could use a fresh start, and maybe he could turn it around, especially on a team that could certainly use DFD. Philly gets a bottom six winger who never got a chance in Toronto, and a decent pick around 55th overall. Toronto gets a guy who could be a solid DFD for the future, or a guy who may be no more than a 5-6 dman.

Frederik Andersen (5.0 Million)
Garrett Sparks (0.85 Million)

Total Cap: 68.725 Million
- Fourth line is the checking line against teams top lines, Hyman, Brown and Lindholm are all defensively responsible and will be the matchup line.

When Matthews and Marner and Dermotts extensions kick in.

Valeri Nichushkin (2.25 Million) - Auston Matthews (10.0 Million) - Mitch Marner 7.0 Million)
Patrick Marleau (6.25 Million) - Nazem Kadri (4.5 Million) - William Nylander (5.75 Million)
Andreas Johnsson (1.75 Million) - Miro Aaltonen (0.8 Million) - Kasperi Kapanen (0.85 Million)

*Andreas Borgman (0.875 Million)

Frederik Andersen (5.0 Million)
Garrett Sparks (0.85 Million)

Total Cap: 76.525 Million

With the cap going up, this seems reasonable. If not, a Marleau trade could happen and could become a legitimate possibility.

21 May 2018 18:21:17
U know what u put a lot of thought and energy into this so I read the who thing, some things are questionable? But for the most part very realistic and in depth.

21 May 2018 19:06:29
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.

21 May 2018 19:07:32
Lol ty @Kings.

I didn't have much to do over the long weekend so I decided to make a post regarding what I'd like the leafs future to be like.
