(single word yields best result)

20 Feb 2019 21:35:42
Nic Petan [875K x 1 Year] to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Charles Hudon [650K x 1 Year]

Hudon: 24 Years, 32/ 3/ 2/ 5 and 110/ 13/ 26/ 39
Petan: 23 Years 13/ 0/ 2/ 2 and 108/ 5/ 18/ 23

Change of scenery. Both players could end up like Chris Mueller or Seth Griffith, or could be decent third liners or so.

20 Feb 2019 22:20:08
The Jets don't need wingers. I'd rather use Petan to go after something we need than waste him on a player we have no use for.

21 Feb 2019 00:11:26
I dunno man. judging by the super unbiased Winnipeg fans here I’m pretty sure Petan is worth Domi +++

In fact, the Jets have so many can’t-miss untouchables I heard the NHL is going to make them split into two NHL franchises — the Winnipeg Jets and the Manitoba Pilots — If they don’t they might as well get a head start etching their name on the cup for the next 10 years. They’re just that good. Da bestest.

21 Feb 2019 00:15:27
I would rather see Petan packaged with other pieces for better assets.

21 Feb 2019 00:17:57
Hudon never projected very highly, but Jets had higher hopes for Petan. Both these teams might be better swapping these guys out for futures though instead of another depth guy they each have plenty of in the system already.

21 Feb 2019 05:27:02
Habs were moving hudon with the intention on opening up a roster spot. I doubt they would want a guy back who has been worse. unless maybe petan can be sent down without having to go through waivers. I doubt that is the case though.

20 Feb 2019 00:56:33
friedman said habs could land duchene if MB can talk to him and resign

Habs-lekhonen-suzuki-1 st pick 2019

sens- duchene

20 Feb 2019 03:31:58
Habs add conditional a 2nd in 2020 if Duchene re-signs if not it becomes a third in 2020.

20 Feb 2019 05:09:35
Friedman talking out his ass again.

20 Feb 2019 13:01:45
He could name every team in the league and say the same thing.

20 Feb 2019 14:14:39
That’s not enough from the habs.

20 Feb 2019 22:15:11
Definitely no where near enough from Habs of the can talk and resign him lol

kotkoniemi, a 1st 2019,

Plus either
a 1st 2020 / Suzuki
Habs take on smith.

21 Feb 2019 12:36:50
lol No Rambo, a signed Duchene does not get you KK and two firsts you putz.

18 Feb 2019 09:21:57
Montreal trades: 2019 1st, Josh Brook, 2019 2nd.

Florida trades: jonathan Huberdeau.

Not sure about the offer just wanted to put something in there and see the comments.

If not what would be a good reasonable offer.

PS don't ask for Domi, Suzuki, poehling 2019 1st.

19 Feb 2019 19:15:52
Well yeah Florida will laugh at this imo. And you also included the 2019 1st but then said don’t ask for it haha. Idk tho I don’t know what Montréal could offer idk how valuable hubby is.

19 Feb 2019 19:16:36
But if I had go get Florida would need some sort of impact player coming back not just picks and prospects.

19 Feb 2019 22:32:50
Huberdeau for Drouin + Brook? Cause realistically, you only get Huberdeau if a solid player is coming back, ie Gallagher, Drouin, etc.

19 Feb 2019 23:20:08
yikes, Huberdeau is a point per player and to think Montreal won't have to give up good players in return is foolish.

18 Feb 2019 17:52:12
Mtl : tomas tatar, 4th rd pick
Dal : Jason Spezza, Roope Hintz, Ben gleason, 1st rd pick

*if spezza waives his nmc/ntc

18 Feb 2019 20:30:23
He’ll no from Dallas. Spezza next on his last year, they aren’t going to pay to get rid of him.

18 Feb 2019 08:12:49
Habs tatar-hudon

Dal- ritchie-1st pick 2019- nichuskin (cap dump)

Habs buy out alzner and nichuskin next year



18 Feb 2019 16:24:38
Tatar is worth more than that alone.

19 Feb 2019 09:20:59
Romanov won't play in the NHL next year and Suzuki won't be on the 1st line. Where is Byron? don't need Ritchie and we can fetch more for Tatar and we won't get a cap dump. No from habs easy pass.

18 Feb 2019 00:56:22
Mtl- poelihng-lekhonen-2nd pick


Im afraid poelihng do as vessey does and don't want come in mtl. He didn't came to a habs camp yet and we get that lhd to play with weber. Poelinhg is currently playing is minnessota with college

18 Feb 2019 16:32:41
I don’t think Minnesota goes for that. Borodin is a key piece of their defense. He’s a very valuable player.

18 Feb 2019 18:56:01
There is no reason to think poehling won't sign with montreal so please stop using it for an excuse to trade him.

19 Feb 2019 14:40:24
gis, the only reason he hasn’t been to a habs camp is because NCAA players only have a certain time frame they can attend a pro camp and if they go beyond that time frame they have to 1) forfeit their NCAA eligibility or 2) pay there way back to there college and piss off the school. All players that have not signed ( Vessey, Kerfoot, etc) all said that the team that drafted them displayed no interest in them until they were almost a free agent. And other teams approached them and showed interest in him and his future.

18 Feb 2019 00:15:47
At deadline
Mtl : Benn
Dal : 2019 3rd rd pick

Mtl : Niemi
Vgk : 2020 4th rd pick

Mtl : Lehkonen, 3rd 2020 and 5th 2020
Wsh : Burakovsky

Gives Washington some cap space to acquire a rental

18 Feb 2019 03:35:57
Why does montreal add two picks when they are giving up the better and cheaper player?

18 Feb 2019 16:33:54
I don’t think Benn is worth a third. Oleksiak just went for a third (again) and he’s a much better player.

17 Feb 2019 20:30:06
EDM : Jesse Puljujärvi, 5th round pick

MTL : Charles Hudon, 3rd round pick

The picks can be a bit different 'cause I know Jesse is 4th overall pick but it seems like he's going to end up being a third liner and Hudon also but he's more ready to help a team like Edmonton

17 Feb 2019 21:08:33
Third line is a lot higher than I see Puljarvi ever making it. Unless you mean in the AHL. We should just take what we can get for him now before he’s worthless.

17 Feb 2019 21:31:31
They have pretty similar career stats and Puljujarvi is 4 years younger. Lol if the Oilers allow Puljujarvi to develop in the AHL he’ll be a good player. I know there’s talk of trading him but unless they get a top 6 player back it just seems crazy to trade him when he’s only 20.

17 Feb 2019 21:32:49
You’re a donut, no.

17 Feb 2019 21:33:44
Rather keep him in the AHL (as it’s rumoured) and play it out on the oilers terms not what he and his agent want. Follow what Yzerman did with Drouin.

17 Feb 2019 22:45:29
IF pool party sucks then why do teams want him?

No he Will be a good player in 1-2 years just takes time.

17 Feb 2019 22:56:17
Zamboni what’s your deal bud.

17 Feb 2019 22:56:33
Jk I know you’re just trollin.

17 Feb 2019 23:48:21
Puljujarvi isn’t the type of kid to not report from what I can tell so him playing in the AHL won’t be an issue.

18 Feb 2019 09:17:54
Puljujarvi gets more then this.

18 Feb 2019 09:18:26
Relax, people are being delusional here. Puljujarvi is 20, Hudon is 24.
Puljujarvi has a good frame and good speed Hudon is 5'10". The difference between them isn't a 3rd and 5th round. I would offer Hudon, 2019 2nd and 2019 4th for him. Oilers will obvs decline.

17 Feb 2019 09:25:15
Mtl - poehling-lekhonen-primeau-1st pick

Minn- brodin-coyle

17 Feb 2019 16:02:43
If I'm giving up that package I want brodin and granlund.

17 Feb 2019 16:25:01
Lol hell no from montreal.

17 Feb 2019 20:59:03
Montreal better win soon after making this trade cause that’s a big chunk of their future leaving here.

18 Feb 2019 09:13:59
Mtl takes that and run.

15 Feb 2019 17:44:14
Mtl: Hudon, Cale Fleury, 3rd rd

Edm: Puljujarvi

15 Feb 2019 19:44:50
no lol.

15 Feb 2019 20:12:00
Not enough.

15 Feb 2019 20:19:08
Why would oilers even do that? No value . would rather just send him to Bakersfield.

15 Feb 2019 21:08:42
I think we are better off with Pool. None of those incoming players from Montreal are anything special. Puljarvi still has potential. He’s doing better this year. Give him time. He might come around.

15 Feb 2019 22:11:59
Hes doing worse this year Zamboni what are you talking about? He had 20 points in 65 games last year and now has 9 points in 45 games this year. Offensively he's doing worse and I'm pretty sure he's not much help defensively. So Zamboni can you explain to me how he's doing better this year?

15 Feb 2019 23:12:32
Pool party is having a less offensive year this season compared to last, but to be fair this year has been very frustrating watching him on the 3-4th line every game with 8-12 min a game. Even when he gets a chance to play in the top 6 he gets less than 5 minutes or a couple shifts until he is moved off and its effin ridiculous that happens he's never got a full game in playing in the top 6 and no wonder he has trouble finding consistency and confidence when the coach won't give you a legit chance.

15 Feb 2019 23:16:53
A decent prospect a 3rd round pick and an nhl player who can match his offensive production I'd say is pretty generous. you can't hang on to the high draft pick value forever if he soon don't start producing this could be the best offer you ever get.

15 Feb 2019 23:17:58
I know most oilers fans would say if this is all we can get we will keep him but myself as a habs fan would not give anymore then this right now for him.

15 Feb 2019 23:57:13
You’re right too BoomBoom. I don’t know what I was thinking there. Puljarvi is actually doing a lot worse than I thought. I should probably do a quick check before posting if I’m not sure next time.

Maybe we should just give up on him. There still isn’t a lot coming back in return, but at least it’s something. Another year like this one and we won’t even be able to give him away. His stats are so bad right now it’s obvious he is not an nhl caliber player. He should be sent down and developed properly before we ruin him permanently.

16 Feb 2019 03:10:15
Thoughts are Oilers would only trade him if they got a can't refuse offer.

14 Feb 2019 00:27:06
Mtl: Suzuki, Brook, Phoeling

Carolina: Slavin

Mtl get very good top LHD to play with Weber and bump down Mete to second pair. Carolina gets an A prospect in Suzki,a possible future replacement for Slavin in Brook and a future replacement for Staal in Phoeling.

14 Feb 2019 01:33:20
Pretty awful trade for Montreal.

14 Feb 2019 03:04:53
Carolina would love this deal, but I don’t think Montreal sacrifices so much of their future for Slavin.

14 Feb 2019 14:47:59
Habs decline. Way too much of our young talent.

15 Feb 2019 01:26:43
Might as well add Kotkaniemi and

14 Feb 2019 00:21:02
Mtl: Lekonen, Benn, 3rd2019

Blue Jackets: Murray, Dubinski(10%)

Mtl takes about to 5 million in cap with Dubinski until 2021 but gets they're LHD for cheaper because they're doing so. Jackets clear about 8 million total in cap and still gets peaces that can help now and a pick. Lekonen is a good young top 9 winger that should fit well in the mix and Benn can replace Murray on the bottom pair because I heard that's where he was playing sometimes because of the depth they have in the blue line.

14 Feb 2019 03:08:05
Jackets aren’t getting a good enough return here. Dubinsky and Murray are arguably the better players and the 3rd doesn’t add anything.

13 Feb 2019 23:08:03
MTL: Byron + Hudon + 5th round pick

NYR: Zuccarello

Zuccarello is a pending UFA, 31, just over 30 points in 40 ish games

Byron is 29, good contract, 19 points in 36 games

Both players are fast, work really hard and can play in many situations (pp pk)

Montreal gives another mid round pick and a young forward having a tough year in Hudon. Montreal might be able to sign Zuccarello after the season too. Zuccarello would be a great addition for playoffs and to the top 6 also the PP with his skill and speed.

Montreal may need to add slightly (better pick/ a prospect but not a top one)



14 Feb 2019 03:12:05
Seems like a lot to be giving up for a pending UFA. Rangers will be looking for someone younger than Byron. Usually these type of rental style deals involve picks and prospects going the other way for the UFA. Not other roster players.

13 Feb 2019 22:11:59
Mtl - Shaw, Hudon and Lindgren
Ott - Stone and Condon (contract)

Mtl - Lehkonen, Juulsen and 2nd
Ana - Fowler.

14 Feb 2019 01:33:33
Ottawa hangs up before you can even finish making the offer.

14 Feb 2019 03:12:30
Ducks say no too.

13 Feb 2019 00:03:49
Mtl: Lekonen, 2rd 2019

Caroline: De Haan

Mtl gets exactly the type of defensemen they need in they're top 4 and Carolina gets quite a lot for a guy that all they had to do was sign him. Lekonen will fit in good with Aho and the boys while the second rd pick will help Carolina with they're prospect pool.

13 Feb 2019 03:26:00
But Boom, that kinda ruins the plans of Habs being all Finns.? I thought u wanted to add more Finns for Kk?

13 Feb 2019 04:59:16
If Montréal really needs De Haan that bad then I think this is a good trade.

13 Feb 2019 14:48:48
Don't really need dehann that much.

13 Feb 2019 15:53:55
I’m pretty sure if Carolina could get anything close to that for DeHaan he would have been sent packing long ago.

13 Feb 2019 23:40:47
No thanks from montreal.

14 Feb 2019 00:24:11
Why are you putting words in my mouth Sosa. Ya it's a plus being a Finn and all but Lekonen is a top 9 player with the amount of value that can start a conversation going to get are top 4 D. I'm thinking about what's best for the team.

14 Feb 2019 00:25:29
We do Mcjesus. The reason why is if this team wants to be a contender wich I honestly think they are not that far out when Price is at his best, Reilly has to be a third pairing not second. DeHann and Petry would be a solid second pair. After this trade another bruising guy in the top 9 and this team would be hard to play against during the playoffs.

14 Feb 2019 01:35:34
I don’t think Montréal is ANYWHERE near being a contender haha but I think this would be a good pick up for their defense.

12 Feb 2019 11:34:45
Mtl: Juulsen, Phoeling

Philly: Ghostibehere

Mtl gets a good LHD while Philly gets a good young RHD and a big A center prospect

12 Feb 2019 15:02:18
No from Montreal.

12 Feb 2019 18:04:30
No from Montreal? I was thinking Flyer’s would be the ones saying no here. Poehling and Juulsen are a couple real good prospects, but neither is proven at NHL level. I expect Flyers would want a return that would improve the team immediately without having to wait for guys to develop.

12 Feb 2019 18:18:40
Isn’t Juulsen out with a severe vision injury that a couple weeks ago was being called career threatening? Why would flyers trade cost controlled player for one unproven and one who may never be the same? If juulsen comes back and picks up the progress he was making, it could be revisited but as it is Flyers would get better offers.

12 Feb 2019 20:22:08
I firmly believe a team would give up much more then this for Ghost.

11 Feb 2019 23:44:27
MTL trades

Victor Mete, Joni ikonen, 2019 1st, 2019 2nd.

Philly trades


12 Feb 2019 01:02:38
No thanks! Way to much for Ghost.

12 Feb 2019 00:54:57
Confirmed trade, I think it's a good move by Bergevin.

12 Feb 2019 01:35:21
More then I'd want to give up but ghost would probably help the powerplay in a big way.

12 Feb 2019 01:54:53
Confirmed by who?

12 Feb 2019 03:26:13
It’s not a confirmed trade. Not enough for Ghost. Philly can do better.

12 Feb 2019 04:16:04
It’s not that it’s too much or too little for Ghost, it’s tge matter philly can get better offers and if this was the best they got then I’m pretty positive they would just keep him.

12 Feb 2019 04:32:49
I don't see what's so special about him. . Mete is younger, and getting better every game. may not get the points Ghost gets, but I think he's better in his own zone. so. I wouldn't do this.

12 Feb 2019 11:32:00
Just joking this is way too much for Ghostibehere. Maybe if he was on pace for 65 points this year but it's not the case. he's on pace for 30 points and 30 points offensive defensemens don't get this much.

12 Feb 2019 11:37:13
I'd do the trade if montreal gets to keep Mete.

12 Feb 2019 14:47:59
I'd say Mete OR the 1st. not both. But i think he would be great beside Weber.

11 Feb 2019 20:44:27
Habs trade 1st 2nd brook and hudon
To anahiem for silfverberg and fowler


11 Feb 2019 22:54:55
Is Silfverberg a UFA at seasons end?
I think it's fair. not sure though. I think Anaheim could get more for Fowler.
I'd be reluctant to move Brook, as well as the 1st.
As good as the Habs season has been, they aren't contenders. I think in 2 years they could be. they need to stay the course. not give up the future.

11 Feb 2019 23:51:29
Anaheim will want more.

12 Feb 2019 01:03:12
I think Silfverberg would look goof next to Crosby.

12 Feb 2019 01:44:20
Not goof lmao. good haha.

12 Feb 2019 03:36:03
Silfverberg is worth at least 2nd+, which leaves the other two pieces for Fowler, which probably isn’t enough. He’s a pretty good player. Anaheim seems to like him.

12 Feb 2019 04:18:38
Defs no from Anaheim I’d say. Can’t see them parting with Fowler.

12 Feb 2019 06:10:05
take out Silfverberg and I can see this trade is believable.

11 Feb 2019 18:04:20
Mtl: Fleury, 2rd 2019, Lekonen

Philly: Simmonds

Mtl can try Simmonds on the power play and he can also bring some energy and bruising in the top 9. No Philly don't get a first but a first is never a guarantee. Lekonen can replace Simmonds in the top 9 not the same type of player but he is still young and already a leader for his team with his A. Fleury is a B+ prospect and the second is going to be the earliest one that mtl has

11 Feb 2019 18:43:19
Im sure Philly will look for better offers.

11 Feb 2019 18:57:26
I wouldn't do it from a habs perspective unless simmonds could be resigned to a good contract.

11 Feb 2019 07:14:41
Mtl- lekhonen-reilly-hudon-lindgren-2nd pick 2019and 2nd pick 2020

Fla- mathesson-hoffman

Fla clear a lot of cap for bob and panarin and go for the lottery pick
Mathesson having a hard time in fla
Could benefit from scenary change with weber and hoffman its the typical shooter habs need on pp
Lekhonen and reilly are nhl ready player with upside.Florida already shown interest in the past for lindgren and hudon is a cheap gamble



11 Feb 2019 15:46:17
No from florida.

11 Feb 2019 17:03:01
Montreal took a bit of a chance with Drouin and Domi, and they worked out fine for them. It’s very possible they might be interested in giving Mathesson a shot. They have the cap space they can afford to take these guys on. This trade would give Montreal a couple guys that contribute immediately, and could have a major positive impact on the team.

Florida might make this trade. Hoffman’s name has been popping up regularly in rumours. It’s well known Florida really wants to make major offer for Panarin and Goalie Bob, this would help them reach that objective by shedding a huge chunk of salary.

11 Feb 2019 20:42:35
What do you think of this let me know

Mtl trades: 1st 2nd josh brook and charles hudon

Anahiem trades: silfverberg and fowler?

Who should add whos should subtract ?
