21 Sep 2017 03:12:29
I watched Drouin and he wasn't bad at all for 1st C

Mtl) Galchenyuk
Fla) Huberdeau + LD (?)

Hemsky Drouin Patch
Huberdeau Danault Gallagher
Hudon Plekanec Lehkonen

Jerabek/Mete/? Weber
Alzner Petry
Schlemko Benn

Guys don't click on unbelievable just because I added a potential LD please just let me know

21 Sep 2017 04:25:33
No from Florida and why would Florida add? He's better than Galchenyuk lol

21 Sep 2017 12:18:38
How Huberdeau is better than Galchenyuk?
Hubby best season 50 pts 25 years old
Chucky best season 50 pts 30 goals 23 years old.

21 Sep 2017 13:27:33
He's better because he's been florida's number one center playing against top defenders and he's put up two 50+ point seasons. Galchenyuk was demoted to the 4th line at times last year. Kid is talented but a top 6 wingers value doesn't equal a number 1 center.

21 Sep 2017 15:16:36
@mclarty. I agree huberdeau is better but you do realize he's a winger right? Barkov is their top centre. Barkov, bjugstad, trochek, Mckenzie.

@hothabs. Hubby's best season was not 50 pats at 25. He's only 24 lol he had 26 in 31 games as a 24 year old and 54 and 59 pts as a 22 and 23 year old. Also had 31 pts in the shortened 48 game season as a 20 year old. Track record speaks for itself.

20 Sep 2017 21:30:58
MTL) Galchenyuk, 2x2d
EDM) RNH + Nurse

Is this fair for both teams?

20 Sep 2017 22:27:08
Take nurse out and edmonton still says no. in my opinion the oilers would likely say no to galchenyuk straight up for RNH, adding nurse just spaces out the offer even further.

21 Sep 2017 01:54:37
Close value wise but I can't see the Oilers being able or willing to put Nurse in this deal. And, Montreal won't do a Galchenyuk for Nuge deal straight across.

21 Sep 2017 02:35:34
Ridiculous you ever thought this was good for oil lol.

18 Sep 2017 19:48:26
mtl: galchenyuk, shaw first round, lingrend
st-louis: tarasenko.

18 Sep 2017 21:33:21
No way for St. Louis.

18 Sep 2017 21:46:12
Um st. louis says funny hell no.

18 Sep 2017 21:53:08
Just no.

18 Sep 2017 23:17:41
What's with the complete delusional Habs stuff lately. Wow.

18 Sep 2017 23:46:30
No from blues. Trading a guy like Tarasenko, you need to have faith that at least one guy in the package has a chance to be as good somewhere down the road. Don't see anything close to that out of anyone there.

18 Sep 2017 23:51:02
And in relation to your last post, Shaw and a pick was said to be not enough for brick Nelson, so add galchenyuk and lindgren and make it for tarasenko? Lol.

19 Sep 2017 03:45:33
A center that can't even play center, a 3rd liner and a low first for a top 10 goal scorer looool

19 Sep 2017 14:04:37
Jesus Christ. You're making us habs fans look bad.

19 Sep 2017 14:40:11
Schenn, Binnington, Gunnarson and a 1st for Price?

19 Sep 2017 19:26:35
This is the worst. Agreed with Topshelf lol.

19 Sep 2017 20:10:02
I wish STL Homer Colt was still around. Would love to hear his response to this crap. Lol.

19 Sep 2017 22:29:39
That would be worse than when St. Louis traded Doug Gilmour for scraps.

20 Sep 2017 23:58:26
How about
Duchene and MacKinnon for Pacioretty and Galchenyuk

21 Sep 2017 02:57:34
Lol almost as laughable as the original trade^.

18 Sep 2017 13:35:56
mtl: shaw+ 2nd
nyi : Nelson.

18 Sep 2017 19:53:24
Lol no from NYI come on.

18 Sep 2017 21:49:00
The habs are stuck with shaws contract, can't see anyone taking it off their hands.

16 Sep 2017 00:13:42
If drouin isn't center...

Mtl) Galchenyuk + Lindgren + 1st + 2d
Flo) Huberdeau + Trochek + Matheson

Yeah I know I'm insane hahaha

16 Sep 2017 05:22:42
Ahahaahhah big humongous no from Florida

16 Sep 2017 06:21:37
Wow. What is with the brutal Habs/ Panthers proposals lately? Delusional if you think Florida would say yes to that. Holy F.

16 Sep 2017 13:18:17
If Chucky and Hub cancel, then Trochek alone is worth more than those spare parts? Plus Matheson? Jeez.

16 Sep 2017 19:38:01
Lol wtf huge no from Florida.

13 Sep 2017 22:25:52
Ok guys don't get upset with me I'm trying things :

Trade 1:
EDM) Gets Gallagher, McNiven, 1st, 2d, 3d
MTL) Gets RNH, 4th

Trade 2:
FLA) Gets Galchenyuk, 2d (might need to add more... please let me know)
MTL) Gets Huberdeau, Matheson, 3d

Edm get a potential Elite Goalie cus Talbot isn't young and get a winger in Gally

Florida gets a really interesting player in Chucky

Habs lineup:

Pacioretty Danault Drouin
Huberdeau RNH Lehkonen
Hudon Plekanec Hemsky
Byron Martinsen Shaw

Alzner Webber
Matheson Petry
Sclemko/Jerabek/Morrow Benn

Price Lindgren/Montoya


14 Sep 2017 00:51:05
I think the first trade sounds like a lot to give up for habs as far as draft picks and also have heard oilers would prefer a defence in return for RNH. the panthers would never do the second trade, that huberdeau is a decent player.

14 Sep 2017 01:00:53
Florida laughs at you.

14 Sep 2017 01:18:04
Overpayment for nuge and an underpaymemt for Matheson & Huberdeau

14 Sep 2017 03:09:25
Lol you high/ trolling? No way Chucky gets Hubs and Matheson.

14 Sep 2017 03:34:11
That first trade is horrendous for the Habs. Nuge has had 6 years in the league and capped off an 18 goal season with 0 goals in 13 playoff games playing against third liners. He's not what Montreal needs.

14 Sep 2017 03:34:29
First one is too much from the habs for sure. Second one isn't near enough from the habs.

14 Sep 2017 12:23:01
Ok switch the 1st to Florida trade?

12 Sep 2017 21:15:39
Gallagher + Scherbak for RNH

MTL : May not want to give up Scherbak
EDM : May not want to trade RNH cus he could become first center but there's no room for him and perhaps MTL might not be the best trade partner

So let me know your opinions guys please

12 Sep 2017 22:58:29
If Nuge is getting traded it's likely for a offensive dman.

13 Sep 2017 00:01:52
Sounds fair to me, but idk if mtl wants to trade gallagher. maybe wait to see what galchenyuk does this year or if drouin ends up taking some draws, maybe mtl won't be so bad in the circle as everyone thinks.

13 Sep 2017 04:25:21
Mtl is really weak down the middle. RNH would help them a lot. Galchenyuk is going to play wing as mentioned by GM.

12 Sep 2017 12:14:36

MTL might need to add more because idk if Carolina wants to give up Hannifin

12 Sep 2017 14:06:47
I think habs add. If hurricanes make it known around the league that hanifin is available, they would get better, so habs would need to add to keep the deal between them.

12 Sep 2017 14:51:25
Ya not a chance Carolina does this straight up.

12 Sep 2017 15:26:14
Id be be kinda torn on this. on one hand, Habs get a good young potential stud Dman. that they desperately need. on the other, Galchenyuk has always givin me the what can he be feeling. I feel there is so much more to his game, and he could and should be a 80 pt player. however that hasn't been the case.
I do agree Habs would have to add. jus depends how valuable the addition is.

12 Sep 2017 18:32:18
value wise, hell no from Carolina.

However, Montreal is already s*** at center, so why would they wanna add another dman to a plethora of them?

12 Sep 2017 00:02:56
MTL) Darren Helm, Johan Franzen, 1st , 2d
DET) 2 Decent prospects

I feel like it could be 1st round cus MTL makes a huge service to Detroit if no one really wants to trade with them

12 Sep 2017 04:58:55
I don't think DET is giving up high picks essentially to dump Helm since Franzen just goes on IR. Helms deal isn't great but that first is top 10.

12 Sep 2017 05:32:28
No reason to believe wings will be better than 25th this year. Can't give up their first. Have to admit that their incredible run is over and build it back up the right way, starting with a top 5 pick this year.

11 Sep 2017 22:32:23
Ok so I'm new...

What about

MTL) Brendan Gallagher
CHI) Richard panik + Nick Schmaltz

12 Sep 2017 00:23:27
You're a Habs fan? And still want this in return?

12 Sep 2017 00:33:02
No from Montreal i'd say.

12 Sep 2017 02:16:35
Not terrible actually. Panik can pick up some of gallaghers offence on the wing and they get a center prospect with good potential which they could really use. Gallagher can fill a role that the hawks miss since trading Shaw. Just not sure on cap implications as I believe Gallagher is around $4 mill and the other 2 might be 2.5mill combined.

12 Sep 2017 03:07:33
Zero chance Gallagher gets both Panik and Schamltz in return. Maybe Panik + small add for Gallagher but that's pretty lateral for Habs and Hawks couldn't afford it so don't really see a deal here.

12 Sep 2017 03:45:32
Panik was a waiver pick up by the leafs two years ago, he's a bottom six forward who got hot last year for 2 months. No chance he continues that production.

12 Sep 2017 09:30:32
He played top 6 minutes all year and in position to again.

12 Sep 2017 14:00:09
Yea we'll no from Habs cmon. Gllagher is great and has a good contract plus plays aggressively. WOULDN'T trade him unless if it was for a guy like Jonas Brodin I'd do it.

12 Sep 2017 16:10:41
I personally like Gallagher (former Vancouver Giant) but Is he this good? I know he's been injured but he only has 29 goals and 70 points the last 2 season, 35Pt average. (yes I know Gallagher brings a lot more then points but still) . Schamltz is a good young NHL ready player for the Hawks and Panik was an unreal pickup who has scored as many goals as Gallagher the last 2 seasons in the same amount of games pretty much. I don't see how a guy like Gallagher, whose value isn't at a high right now, gets 2 top 6 forwards in return? I don't think Gallagher gets this as a return. Panik and Gally play a fairly similar style game as well.

10 Sep 2017 23:21:43
MTL: Galchenyuk
EDM: RNH + Klefbom

11 Sep 2017 00:49:06
W. T. F. ?
Did you forget a few pieces from Montreal?
This is pure crap. Delusion at its finest.

11 Sep 2017 01:45:40
Edmonton will not be trading Klefbom or Larson. I could see this being Nuge plus a prospect def perhaps.

11 Sep 2017 02:29:05
Lol no from Edmonton big time

11 Sep 2017 02:56:59
Most definitely not enough add Draisatl then M. V. Will accept.

11 Sep 2017 05:41:42
Add Draisaitl? Ahahah

11 Sep 2017 05:42:26
I think to get Galchenyuk maybe R.Nugent-Hopkins + E.Bear but I wouldn't even do it. He's not much of an upgrade from nuge

11 Sep 2017 15:06:33
Galchenyuk hasn't proven he's a center in the league yet, forget a good one. RNH will probably have underwhelming offensive numbers for a lot of his career, but anyone can see he's a good 2 way forward that could play an important role on any team. Only a year or 2 age difference too. I'd say straight up wouldn't be a bad deal if it solves both teams needs. Problem is oilers have lots of fire power. That defensive side of RNHs game is more important. Cap hit would be only reason to do it.

11 Sep 2017 19:46:32
Hahahahahahahahahah wtf did I just read omg pathetic.

11 Sep 2017 22:42:06
Lol, like if Galchenyuk would get you even half of Klefbom, let alone him and RNH.

10 Sep 2017 20:37:14
This is a risk :
MTL: Chucky + 1st
EDM: RNH + Klefbom


11 Sep 2017 00:49:32
You're delusional as all hell.
That's not a thought it's a fact.

11 Sep 2017 13:03:26
You think that's a risk from the habs? Lol.

11 Sep 2017 19:50:32
Oilers wouldn't give you Klefbom for a 1st and chucky imo.

11 Sep 2017 22:22:26
RNH will be dumped for next to nothing (kids) . Too many players need to be singed next season.

12 Sep 2017 04:25:58
Agreed that Nuge is very overrated by Oiler fans but Klefbom is developing into the type of def you just don't part with unless you are in a rebuilding situation which the Oilers are not. Plus, he's on a good contract.

10 Sep 2017 16:38:32
Trade 1: MTL - COL :Galchenyuk + 2d + Mete for Mackinnon + any forward prospect

Trade 2: MTL - TOR : Kasperi Kapanen for Ryan Poehling + 2d

Pacioretty Mackinnon Drouin
Kapanen Danault Gallagher
Byron Hudon Lehkonen
Martinsen Plekanec McCarron

Alzner Weber
Jerabek/Morrow Petry
Benn Schlemko

Price / Lindgren

10 Sep 2017 17:34:01
so Montreal trades there top center prospect and 2 defense? Kapanen is probably a top 6 winger with a decent ceiling. I feel like the leafs would do this but I don't think the habs should. Their center corps is horrible.

10 Sep 2017 17:34:44
Kapanen is way more of a sure thing than Poehling. No thanks.

&also, no way for Mack. Serg+ was the only thing Colorado would have even listened to, and he's gone. So no way, nothin on Mtl (except Price) gets Mackinnon.

10 Sep 2017 17:48:01
Yeah how about pyatt+Hammond+3rd for price funny guy.

10 Sep 2017 17:59:12
Not a chance we get MacKinnon.

10 Sep 2017 18:31:25
This is laughable.

11 Sep 2017 00:49:56
Wow you're on glue today man. Hollllyyyyy.

12 Sep 2017 00:36:00
Did i read that correctly? You actually think that would pry MacKinnon from Colorado?

09 Sep 2017 17:54:16
- Alex Galchenyuk
- Rasmus Andersson
- Mark Jankowski
- Troy Brouwer (25% Retained)

- Sam Bennett
- Elias Lindholm

- Adam Fox
- Anthony Duclair

Gaudreau - Monahan - Lindholm
Tkachuk - Backlund - Frolik
Pollock - Galchenyuk - Versteeg
Ferland - Lazar - Duclair

09 Sep 2017 19:55:51
Lol. No from the other teams. Sure your name isn't Flamers11?

09 Sep 2017 20:53:29
Always same Calgary guys with their trade bullshits

Yeah let's say J. Gaudreau for Juulsen + Schlemko + Plekanec and 20bucks.

09 Sep 2017 22:13:25
If u haven't seen Adam Fox's game then u wouldn't understand the Duclair trade. He was signed 1 x 1yr which means I don't think they think very highly of him and the other trade for Galchenyuk is a little lopsided I can see that now

10 Sep 2017 01:31:41
Wow terrible for every team except Calgary.

10 Sep 2017 08:23:47
Leafs fan I'm a Calgary fan and Montreal says no and I wouldn't do the bottom 2.

10 Sep 2017 08:38:47
The Fox deal is actually terrible for CGY but otherwise I agree with HGB.

10 Sep 2017 15:54:56
The Arizona and Carolina trades weren't outrageous, but that Montreal trade was god awful.

11 Sep 2017 01:54:43
No from Montreal on trade 1
No from both on trade 2 but I think Lindholm is the better player at this time and may stay that way but Calgary needs the grit Bennett brings. Big no from Calgary on 3.

08 Sep 2017 08:14:24
-nugent Hopkins
- Ryan Mantha
- 2019 3rd round pick

-2018 1st round pick
-Noah juulsen
-2020 -2nd rd pick.

08 Sep 2017 10:44:29
How is this good for Edmonton

08 Sep 2017 13:31:54
The only way this is even close is if oilers feel habs are going to be BAD. Not just miss playoffs, but be a top 6 or 8 pick. Tough to give up a known quantity in RNH for a hope and a prayer.

09 Sep 2017 16:11:24
@leafsfan11 Cap space for the pilers.

07 Sep 2017 17:00:34
Lol. McGuire says Tavares would choose Buffalo over Montreal if he becomes a free agent.

07 Sep 2017 18:02:59
McGuire is on interstellar levels of idiocracy.

07 Sep 2017 18:08:42
I said I wouldn't count out buffalo a while ago. Grew up close and has family connections there too. However with sabres having eichel and habs having daneault as their top actual center lol if he wants to be 'the guy' habs would be a great fit.

07 Sep 2017 18:18:11
Wow lol.

07 Sep 2017 19:23:48
Why would Buffalo need him? Eichel and OReilly. that's going to be about as good a 1, 2 center combi in the league. top 5.

07 Sep 2017 21:58:39
He could also be meaning that Tavares would rather play in the city on Buffalo than the city of Montreal. Very possibly true.

08 Sep 2017 13:36:22
Yup, that's what I think. Playing opportunity wise, habs. Personally and family wise. maybe buffalo.

09 Sep 2017 17:50:14
Sosa so you're telling me that an O'reilly-Tavares swap wouldn't make a HUGE difference? Tavares >>>>> Orielly. Eichel and O'Rielly.

06 Sep 2017 20:17:16
MTL : Pacioretty

NYI : Tavares

06 Sep 2017 20:56:24
Montreal wishes lol.

06 Sep 2017 21:49:23
Come on lol people are saying unbelievable to galchenyuk, 2decent prospects and 2 high picks. And you think a single winger that's older than Tavares is going to cut it? Pacioretty is a good player, and a great bargain for another year or two while on that contract, but he wouldn't be near the best player on most teams in the league. Tavares would immediately become the best player on 80% of the teams in the league of traded there.

07 Sep 2017 00:35:52

07 Sep 2017 00:55:35
Not even close.
Maybe Patches
1st Round 18
1st round 19.
Lindgren or Mcnevin?

Dont think that would do it either. But a little better than a straight swap.

07 Sep 2017 01:08:23
I wish lmao. Not even close.

07 Sep 2017 01:29:00
typical montreal go find another league maybe mexico.

06 Sep 2017 04:54:50
Ben Smith RW
Connor Carrick D
Eric Fehr RW
4th 2019

3rd 2018
3rd 2020

N.Y. Islanders:
James van Riemsdyk LW

1st 2019
2nd 2020 (conditional if he resigns)

1st 2018
Noah Juulsen D
Alex Galchenyuk RW

Matt Duchene C
3rd 2019

06 Sep 2017 05:11:18
Colorado is trying to collect young assets. Trading 2 picks for 3 players (one of which they placed on waivers last year) doesn't really make sense.

JVR should only be traded for a good upgrade on D in my opinion. If they can't get a Good young D for him I think they will keep him for the playoff run and depending on his demands, possibly re-sign him.

Earlier I would have said habs add, but the longer this duchene thing plays out, that might be the best they get. I'd say the 3rd going back to the habs might not happen though.

06 Sep 2017 11:34:30
The RW behind Galchenyuk shows your resignation about him😂.

02 Sep 2017 04:23:32
Ok not sure if this is fair but since Barzal isn't really proven in the NHL.

Montreal trade- Galchenyuk, 2018 1st, 2018 2nd, jordie benn.

Islanders trade- Barzal, De haan

02 Sep 2017 14:10:23
get rid of the 1st and ya.

03 Sep 2017 01:30:42
In 3 years Barzal will be better then Chucky, also don't think Isles can afford to move Barzal if they can't sign Tavares. No one else in their system has 1C upside.

03 Sep 2017 22:23:28
Ya easy no from Islanders.
You take out the 1st and they laugh at you.

04 Sep 2017 00:14:39
I honestly don't know enough about Barzal, is he really going to be that good. from my standpoint, it seems like a big overpayment from Habs for an unproven player. but If he is going to be that good, then ya, No from NYI. who would you guys say he is comparable to?

04 Sep 2017 02:57:55
^ He might turn out to be the next Ryan strome u never know that's why unproven players don't hold as much value.

05 Sep 2017 10:27:32
No from Montreal and I love Barzel he's unproven one of those players where he has more value to the organization then to the league. Could be a bust or he could be great.

06 Sep 2017 16:40:56
Barzal's numbers in junior are pretty similar to Galchenyuks. Why overpay for an unproven offensive talent when you already have one 3 years older with a 30 goal season under his belt. People undervalue Galchenyuk so much around here.

29 Aug 2017 01:12:41
Apparently, according to Mike Bossy, Tavares turned down his contract extension (84M$).

John Tavares

Alex Galchenyuk
Brendan Gallagher
2nd round pick (2018)
2nd round pick (2019)
Conditional 1st round pick 2019 (If Tavares resigns with MTL)

29 Aug 2017 14:40:47
I'm a die hard jabs fan and you will more than likely have to throw Noah juulsen and it would be a sign and trade for sure Montreal would t give up that much without knowi he's signing or not.

29 Aug 2017 14:42:15
Throw in juulsen and switch 2nd for first and it would have to be sign trade for Montreal to give up that much.

29 Aug 2017 19:19:47
Deffinetly a lot to give up. As for adding Juulsen, i'd do my best not to add him. no he's not going to be a superstar. But Habs need all the defensive prospects they need. He will be a solid but not spectacular top 4 IMO.

29 Aug 2017 22:30:28
Tavares is great but he's not worth all that. Especially with the money he will demand. Habs would have to pay him as much as price. So you'd have three players making 30 mil?
Plus why would he want to go to mtl. They will be in full rebuild mode in 2-3 years if that.

30 Aug 2017 08:04:25
I'd rather Tavares go to a team like the Canes or Blue Jackets who have actually built properly unlike the Islanders.

30 Aug 2017 14:43:28
Montreal would be a great fit for Tavares as much as I hate it from a leafs fan. Championships are built off a great goalie, a stud D and a legit top center. That would give habs all of that. As for the money, I've said it before that going forward, every team is going to be paying their best three players 25-30 mill, just reality now. Some teams are going to pay 3 forwards 25+ mill and still have glaring holes in net and on the blue line. Theirs would be 28 mill in the best goalie in the league, a 27 year old superstar center, and a beast of a number 1 Dman who is one of the best leaders in the game. Not a bad way to do it.

30 Aug 2017 16:13:15
I like the way u put it Jim.

30 Aug 2017 18:56:32
Thanks Sosa. Ppl got to get past the 10 million dollar player thing because like it's been pointed out, Crosby percentage wise was making the same as mcdavids 12.5 mill. So if penguins had sid, malkin (making even more than sid) and still had letang, fleury, Neal (then hornquist) Kessel etc etc then it can be done. Who wouldn't like their team to have pens success over the past decade? Giving players 10 mill isn't the problem, giving the wrong players that money will kill you tho. I think price and Tavares are about the safest bets you can make to give that kinda cash to at this point.

30 Aug 2017 23:32:34
That didn't actually happen no numbers have been discussed.

Depends who you read. Some say numbers weren't discussed, some say numbers came up but weren't the reason for him rejecting. It could have been 12 mill per, but he isn't signing it till they sort out some other things. Could be wrong but I don't buy for a second that you're a cpl weeks away from camp of the final year of your captain/ best players contract, you have been eligible to give him an extension for 3 months and numbers haven't even been discussed at all. I know it's the islanders lol but doesn't seem possible to me.

There is ZERO chance this happens unless there is an agreement before hand that J. T. signs, and does so simultaneously. And relax, you don't need to through in Juulsen. This is a solif trade for both teams without Juulsen or the 1st rounder.
