25 Apr 2018 18:44:59
Minnesota: Jonas Brodin, Eriksson Ek,

Montreal : Max Pacioretty, 2018 2nd, Jacob De La Rose

25 Apr 2018 10:13:29
Mtl: Patches

Min: Granlund, Parise, Erikson Ek


With all the cap spce mtl has should they try and make a deal for a good offensive center and take on a bad contract to geth i'm at a reasonable price.

25 Apr 2018 14:37:37
no from Minnesota.

25 Apr 2018 09:17:37
Mtl: Alzner (500k), Patches

Minny: Erikson Ek, Brodin, Parise, 1 rd 2018

Ok hear me out. Zack Parise is obviously a massive cap dump. Mtl retains a little bit on Alzner to make him a little less of a cap dump and would replace Brodin for maybe the next 2 years. Mtl only does this trade if we can't get Tavres or Stasny and decide to use all of are cap space to gain assets.

25 Apr 2018 11:32:42
Lol. You even know yourself it's crap when you have to start with "ok hear me out".

25 Apr 2018 14:00:44
Yeah, you tell us all that you don’t even believe this crap when you start like that lol.

25 Apr 2018 15:20:41
I don’t think anyone takes Parise no matter how much more they add/ overpay.

25 Apr 2018 16:39:15
Lol this is funny.

25 Apr 2018 00:36:39
Again i'm still in the opinion that mtl can't use this pick and draft another center that turns out to be a winger at the nhl level= Takchuck. How bout this

Mtl:1 rd 2018(if its third overall), 2rd 2018,Lekonen


Phil:Patrick

After Couturier having an amazing season this year and a even better playoff, would they be open to trading Patrick if it means getting a top tier winger like Tkachuck to play with either Giroux or Couturier.

25 Apr 2018 01:31:58
That doesn’t even help out Montreal lol.

25 Apr 2018 04:44:38
McJesus, are you being sarcastic?

25 Apr 2018 05:21:01
no interest in Patrick would rather have middlestad and hell no.

25 Apr 2018 05:56:07
Patrick has no way proven or established to take on that role for the Canadiens. If they are going to give up that steep of a price they should go for a proven younger #1 center not a guy who hasn’t proved he can take that load yet.

25 Apr 2018 09:09:44
What do you mean, that doesn't even help out mtl? We would be getting a true number 1 center who had a really good season considering he was stuck behind two very talented centers. Are you for real? That doesn't help mtl? Lol.

25 Apr 2018 10:01:56
Are you well? A proven you center that has proved he can take that load fosnt exist exept Nico Hishier. he's 19. You can't get younger then that unless you in this years draft. And then your not proven. Your clueless.

25 Apr 2018 10:06:52
@Mcjesus, "If they are going to give up that price they should go for a younger number one center who has prove he can take down that load". Are you for real? Nolan Patrick is 19 year old, drafted last year you can't get younger then that and if you do your in this years draft so your definitely not proven. Your clearly under the influence atm.

25 Apr 2018 14:17:15
He never said Nolan Patrick wasn’t young, or wasn’t good. He said he hasn’t proven he’s a legit top centre who can handle the pressures of being the go to guy in a market like Montreal. That’s not an easy thing to do and being the 4th or 5th best forward in philly for one year does not prepare or qualify you for what it’s like to be #1 in Montreal. Not hard to figure that out.

25 Apr 2018 16:53:50
Colt your brain ya literally the size of a walnut. Not what I said at all. Thanks Jim for having the brain power to understand my point.

25 Apr 2018 19:08:38
Is^ *.

25 Apr 2018 19:43:01
No thanks necessary. Just common sense lol.

25 Apr 2018 19:47:38
Agree with MCjesus
I also have doubts on Patrick.

24 Apr 2018 10:30:19
Mtl: 1rd 2018 (if the pick is third overall), 2 rd 2018

Car:1rd 2018, Necas

Mtl draft the best available center Joe Veleno of this draft. he's in the LHJMQ and dominated this year)Mtl gets Martin Necas another center for going back a bunch of spots. The second is because Necas is a very touted prospect. Is this fair

Carolina alsosigns Paul Stasny to a 4 million× 3 years contract while mtl offers Tavares 11 million for the next 7 years with a NTC

24 Apr 2018 13:59:12
ummm no from montreal.

24 Apr 2018 16:24:17
Lol wtf no from Montreal.

24 Apr 2018 16:24:54
Like I get trading down and all that but like no from Montreal.

25 Apr 2018 00:26:20
Why tho? Martin Necas and Joe Veleno would be changin are how mtl look foe the middle for years.

22 Apr 2018 22:57:06
Mtl: Patches (2 million retain)

Wash: Bowey, Burakovski

Mtl gets a 23 left winger who just had a dip season and dosnt seemed to fit quite in Washintons system. don't get me wrong he's good but maybe a change of scenary could be benificial? Bowey is also 23 and just had a good season in the nhl and hopefulky he can build on that and be a good top 4 LHD. Wash pays the price for a player who now would be playing with a real number one center or a good solid center. Or heck even Eller if Backstrom gets hurt. i'd like to know if this is fair for both teams?

23 Apr 2018 03:31:34
Well no that’s absolutely idiotic for Washington to make If patches isn’t extended, and even if he is extended that’s still a no from caps imo. Not worth sending away two young talented players for patches.

24 Apr 2018 03:12:32
I think if the Caps replaced one of them with a pick it’d be more fair. Patches with Backstrom/ Kuz would be a 40 goal scorer.

22 Apr 2018 18:16:35
Mtl weber patch price

Canucks elias petterson

22 Apr 2018 19:15:40
Lol ya good trade.

22 Apr 2018 20:01:13
Habs add all draft picks for next 4 years.
Canucks add a 4th rounder in 2026.and maybe a guided tour of StanleyPark.

22 Apr 2018 20:39:57
Lol pretty sure canucks don't have the cap space to take Prices (10,5), Weber (7.5)Patches (4.5 but surely 6+ million next year) and at the expense of they're best center prospect on top of that. Maybe something around Weber (10 % retain) and Hudon for Petterson but not sure Vancouver should go down that route tbh.

22 Apr 2018 20:42:50
lol no thanks, Pettersson is seriously looking like he could be a franchise player, you can keep Weber and Price’s horrendous contracts and let them run you into the ground, it’s what MTL deserves for its incompetence.

22 Apr 2018 22:42:24
Where are you going to get all that money
Please elude me.

23 Apr 2018 04:17:20
Jim benning goes to east hasting and smiles like a 🍩 is where he gets the dumb dumb how else we he get it lol this post i a joke they would add chucky and galherger and retain all there salary and next 100 first rd pick and maybe a 7 to even thing out.

23 Apr 2018 08:11:43
Lol @ colt talking about a team not being able to take so much cap but then posts Boston trading for Draisitle and signing Carlson for $9M. 🙄🙄🙄. Clueless.

23 Apr 2018 14:14:13
Well let's see shall we. Nash = 7.5 million = pouff gone after this summer then Beleskey will probably be bought out a couple million off and then add some tweaking around and you got the space. I know creativity ain't your strong suit but give it a shot and the world will await you bud.

23 Apr 2018 16:45:36
You know Beleskey isn’t in Boston anymore, right? He’s a ranger?

23 Apr 2018 17:04:27
Belesky went to the Rangers in the Nash deal. And the Rangers retained on Nash. Boston only has like $3.9M of Nash's contract on their books.
Who needs creativity when you know the facts. Lol.

21 Apr 2018 19:49:33
to Pittsburgh
Pacioretty (some salary retained, probably not max)
Deslauriers

to Montreal
Sprong
Sheary.

21 Apr 2018 19:52:57
nevermind they definitely do max salary retention.

21 Apr 2018 20:49:48
I think Habs can get more. and I don't want to see Deslauriers traded, he may not be a star, but he is a really good 4th liner who bring a lot of energy, some toughness and the odd clutch goal. his value however isn't measured in stats.
Patches had a bad season. but I believe he can still bring back a better return . and I think Sprong is destined to be a top scorer in his career, however at the AHL level.

22 Apr 2018 20:41:33
I agree that Patches could get more but saying Sprong his destined for the ahl is ridiculous. he's domanted every he played (of course not the nhl yet) and played at the nhl at 18 year old and played this year 8 games and had 3 points. After having a ppg in the ahl this year I think next uear as a 22 year old he could get 50+ points i'd given the chance to play in a top 6 role. That won't happrn in Pitts so i'd be all for acquiring his services and hoping for the best. Trades not terrible imo if you value Sprong properly.

21 Apr 2018 12:40:41
Minnesota: Zach Parise ( 33 year old signed 8 more years at 7.1 mil ), Jared Spurgeon and 1st rd 2018

Montreal: Weber

Minnesota: rids them selves of a horrible Parise contract and brings in a number 1 dman and reunites one of the greatest D pairs ever in the NHL. Suter and Weber.

Montreal: gets younger and Spurgeon is a very good replacement as a solid 2nd dman. The Canadians can hope for an compliance buy out in the next CBA meeting for Parise. IMO after his surgery Parise is much better he can easily be a 65 Point player again if he stays healthy he could fit in the Canadians system.

21 Apr 2018 15:15:09
Parise is done being a 65 point player. I agree he could still be usefull as a second third line winger and maybe on the pp. I would take thus from mtl not sure Minny would tho.

21 Apr 2018 15:36:04
that contract is horrible no no no.

20 Apr 2018 13:29:33
I read multiple article drafting that if Erik Karlson is traded this summer Mtl will be part of the deal. Of course not as the reicever of Karlson but because of the cap and the fact that Dorion and Melnyk wants Bobby Ryan to be part of any deal for Karlson could mtl add prospect or picks and take his contract or part of it for it? Could this be possible

Ott: Klingberg, Gurianov, Honka

Dallas: Karlson

Mtl: Ryan(no retention), Lindell, Faksa

20 Apr 2018 14:26:31
I don't think Dallas would trade Kling straight up for EK. Think age and contract man. Also adding all those pieces? I don't think Dallas considers this for a second.

20 Apr 2018 14:57:01
hell no from mtl.

20 Apr 2018 18:42:11
Don’t know the prospect but just guessing he’s a recent 1st rounder, plus 3 high potential young defence men and Faksa. No way from Dallas. Forgot to mention Klingberg was probably high in Norris talks this season.

21 Apr 2018 04:39:21
lindell and faksa are 3rd line players for taking on 7.5 million cap dump for 4 years ya he'll no

Mtl give Paul byron and Daniel Carr to Dallas to take on alzner and schlemko.

21 Apr 2018 04:49:15
klindberg is only 2 years younger than karlsson and nowhere near his level and all the prospects are all ahl players so sorry but this is a big yes from Dallas

Faksa and lindell really? to take on Bobby ryan contract ok then ottawa gives ceci and pageau would u take bobby ryan with him? I don't think so and btw ceci+pageau> lindell + faksa.

21 Apr 2018 18:18:52
Esa Lindell is a top 23 year old LHD who just had 27 points this year playing on thw secod pair. that's not a third line player wtf.

21 Apr 2018 23:02:13
@MTL4LIFE Kling might only be 2 years younger than Karlsson and not quite as good, but Karlsson has one year left at 7.5 mill before he leaves or you pay him 12.5 mill. Klingberg is in a tier not very far below the best Dmen in the league and has 4 more years at $4.25 million.

So if his great contract and the cap space it leaves Ottawa in the trade isn’t a great asset in your eyes, then why do you feel the habs deserve a ton more to take on bobby Ryans contract? In your response, Cap space isn’t an asset when talking about the sens trade, and then very next paragraph when it pertains to the habs it’s all of a sudden an asset that can’t be bought cheap lol can’t have it both ways.

22 Apr 2018 13:54:13
Lindel is extremely underrated he’d be the 2nd best dman on the Canadians he makes almost no mistakes Dallas will not trade him for anything on Montreal ( besides 4th overall) don’t comment on a player you do not know. If you watched him play you could see he is one of the most underrated players in the NHL he played top pairing in his rookie season for the most part.

19 Apr 2018 23:45:30
Obviously the need for a quality number 1 center in mtl is big. Like I said on multiple ocasuon I don5 believe the answer is within the pick we have in this draft becauze they're is no center worthy of being picked in the top 10 imo. And mtl's pick will likely be in top 5 unless the lottery decides otherwise? Not sure how the odds work or all the rule for that so I can't say we have a garanted top 5 pick. Maybe you guys can let me know below if theures a chaces mtl's pick falls out of the top 5. But to go back on subject do u guys think this pick should be used to traded for a young already drafted center prospect? I do and this is what I propose.

Mtl:1 rd 2018,3rd 2018

Buff:Mittelstad(5 points in 6 nhl games)

Does Buffalo consider this?

20 Apr 2018 00:39:29
Yes they definately consider this. They have good Center depth and there are 3 d men worthy of being picked in top 5. Obviously they’d want to wait for lottery but if the picks falls between 3-5 I think they take it into consideration.

20 Apr 2018 00:42:58
I think the Sabres would be Intrigued having Tkachuk as Eichels wing. I think they consider. Middlestad has crazy potential tho. Also it’s very unlikely they pick 4th.

20 Apr 2018 01:03:18
If this were to happen. What would be your plan for Mittelstadt next season Colt?

20 Apr 2018 04:40:57
I'm not sold on Mittlestad.
Rather make a deal for Reinhart. and keep our pick.

20 Apr 2018 12:35:09
Yea that was my thinking too in terms of they're center depth. And they drafted him 8 overall just last year and now get a lower pick so kind of a of a win win for both teams. Thanks for the feedback Xcing.

20 Apr 2018 12:52:35
I like mittlestadt as a player but I'm not sure if he's ready to be a top line center just yet. habs could end up trading for another player who would be better playing wing. At least for a year or two.

20 Apr 2018 13:00:02
I get it sosa 100%. But at the end of the day we need a real number one center and although Mittelstad is no guaranteed to be one, after is really good stint in the nhl, and mananing to get 5 points in 6 games playing on the third line mostly, and after having another really solid season in the big 10, I have to tell ya i'm sold.

20 Apr 2018 14:27:28
So you would play him top like center in Montreal from game one next season Colt?

20 Apr 2018 15:03:21
Would do it but I want montreal to try Tkachuk at centre.

20 Apr 2018 15:59:31
Tkachuck is played center from time to time in juniors but probably won't be at the nhl level i'm sorry to say. that's not taking anything away from his skills because he truly is a better version of his brother. But when your playing center at the nhl level you have to be the first guy back in his zone after an attack and seeing him play on several ocasion (only once in person tho) I feel like he relies too much on his defensemen when he plays center which is okay in juniors but with the speed at the nhl level it dosent work at all. Kinna what happen with Alex Galchenyuk.

He played center like that in juniors and it worked but at the nhl level because he was so used to play this way and continued to do so It just dint work. i'm not saying Tkachuck can't be a center at the nhl level, but if he wants to he would have to work hard to change his games and how he sees the play.

19 Apr 2018 15:08:00
MTL: M. Pacioretty, P. Byron, D. Schlemko, 1st rd pick 2018 (4th overall)

for

ARZ: M. Domi, L. Dauphin, O. Ekman-Larsson, 2nd rd pick 2018 (34th overall)

19 Apr 2018 18:09:33
Dauphin is a top prospect and Domi has a very high ceiling, while OEL is already a top level player. the value here is so far off.

19 Apr 2018 21:08:44
Agree with the rest but Dauphin isn't a top prospect lmao.

19 Apr 2018 22:10:18
Dauphin a top prospect? Dauphin's a bust who is trying to earned a job as a fourth liner. Might not even play most his carerr in the nhl. If he does it will be in a role where he play 5-7 minutes a game.

20 Apr 2018 00:51:02
I actually think Montreal declines. Domi, Daulphine and the 2nd=Patch. Domi is pretty overrated imo hasn’t done anything special in awhile. A pending UFA would catch a similar but abit better package then Shattenkurk but certainly not the 4th overall and the Canadians are in no position to contend so a half a season of OEL is worthless.

20 Apr 2018 01:49:17
no from montreal.

19 Apr 2018 15:05:30
Canadiens: Alex Galchenyuk + Brendan Gallagher
Flames: Sam Bennett + Rasmus Andersson
Canucks: Brandon Sutter + Chris Tanev

Canadiens (S Bennett + C Tanev + B Sutter)
Flames (A Galchenyuk)
Canucks (B Gallagher + R Andersson)


M Pacioretty - S Bennett - J Drouin
A Lekhonen - B Sutter - C Hudon
P Byron - P Danault - A Shaw
N Sherbak - J De La Rose - N Deslauries

V Mete - S Weber
K Alzner - C Tanev
D Schlemko - J Petry.

19 Apr 2018 16:39:00
Is this a joke?

19 Apr 2018 18:42:16
Terrible for CGY. Bennet for Galchenyuk is a lateral move and you think we should add s solid low cost NHL ready prospect. No thank you.

19 Apr 2018 19:54:25
Actually that's a good deal with galchenyuk. Bennett has showed flashes of brilliance but hasn't been able to capitalize on it. I think he could benefit from a change of scenery. He belongs in the east.

19 Apr 2018 21:11:56
Lmao Galchenyuk is much more proven as a decent secound line guy
And you want us to add Gallagher
Holy Christ
Flamea and Canucks fan really do believe in miracles.

20 Apr 2018 01:50:35
hell no from montreal Bennett is going to be a bust hell no wtf.

20 Apr 2018 02:57:25
I'm actually a Devils fan thank you very much. If you haven't seen the package that the Canadiens receive for them then that's your problem.

17 Apr 2018 18:47:56
MTL pacioretty

FLA Bujstad, 2018 1st, 2018 2nd.

17 Apr 2018 21:04:08
No chance unless Patches is extended. Even then it’s iffy.

17 Apr 2018 21:20:52
Lmao patch is 30 is slowing down in production his not going to get much maybe bujstad but i would rather bujstad on my team over patch.

17 Apr 2018 21:25:22
The only gm dumb enough to trade for web was Bergevin so you stick with him now lol.

18 Apr 2018 00:34:27
I ment to put it on vbbbvvbb post below.

19 Apr 2018 04:43:26
No from Florida.

15 Apr 2018 15:20:06
Toronto: Connor Brown, Timothy Liljegren, Matt Martin, Nikita Ziatsev and 1st 2018

Montreal: Shea Weber*, Micheal Mccaron, Jordie Benn and 2nd 2019

* 1 million retaind on contract ( 6.8 million cap hit.

Toronto: the leafs desperately need a top 2 Elite dman and Weber is that. His skating may not be as good as it once was but paired with Morgan Rielly he would excel. He is excellent in both ends of the ice and he will be able to log top minutes ( 25 min ) for a few more seasons atleast. While his contract may be considered toxic as the cap rises it'll look better. Leafs also rid them selves of Martins contract.

Montreal: the Canadian are not a contender Weber will never win a cup in Montreal. The Canadians need to retool. They bring back a young top 6 player in Brown, An A level prospect, a Replacement for Weber and a 1st to contribute to their rebuild.

** Before Weber was injured he was on pace for 50 points while playing a great two way game.

15 Apr 2018 15:25:09
Pretty easy no from the Leafs.

15 Apr 2018 16:48:37
vbbb: if you're a Leafs fan, why would you sabotage your own team with such a garbage deal?

15 Apr 2018 16:30:00
Pretty easy no from the habs.

15 Apr 2018 17:05:32
Habby get a brain bud, Montreal accepts that so fast.

15 Apr 2018 17:26:53
Sabatoge our team? Weber would help the leafs out tremendously a top 10 dman in the nhl with no corner stone pieces going the other way.

15 Apr 2018 18:00:42
Eek that's bad for Toronto, want nothing to do with Webers declining play and huge contract.

15 Apr 2018 18:14:07
Weber is sick, that contract is terrible. No way I would give up cost controlled assets like brown (3 years 2.1mill) zaitsev (6 x 4.5) and liljegren on an ELC plus a first for it. Martin and marincin have no value but neither does anything else coming back besides Weber other than the 2nd obviously. Easentially it’s those 3 players and a 1st for Weber and a second and I wouldn't touch it.

15 Apr 2018 23:53:28
I don't see where there is anything coming back the habs way to make it worthwhile. sure liligren might still turn into to something decent down the road. but that's about it. The late 1st has some value but the habs have enough bottom 6 forwards like brown and martin. And zaitsevs contract looks worse and worse every game he plays no chance in hell habs accept this for a top pair dman.

16 Apr 2018 00:50:08
Habby I think you underrate Brown he’s a cost controlled top 6 winger he’s still young and has potential to be Mike Hoffman esq. Zaitsev has had the highest TOI in both playoff games so far he’s a top 4 dman in at a cheap price. He’ll never wow you but he does the little things right and he has a hard shot.

16 Apr 2018 03:08:41
Brown with potential for Hoffman lmao.

16 Apr 2018 03:37:52
Mc jesus christ u are just a hab hater and always had been this is more than fair Weber is top 10 for sure in the world Matt Martin is dump low 1st and zaitsev looks like he isn't worth that contract and we don't need him we have petry and connor brown is good not going to lie there but he have so many wingers why add more lilijgren is good Hanzal got a 1st second and 4th for a rental and much worse player so anyone that is hella biased vs habs fan because they do it for fun should shut up and watch hockey.

16 Apr 2018 06:33:27
VBB, Brown is a good player and on a great contract, but is not a similar player to Hoffman in any way and will never be. He’s a middle six, very reliable defensive player with some offensive upside, not a sniper lol

MTL4LIFE, how is this, in any way, comparable to the Martin Hanzal trade? Lol has to be the dumbest comparison to bring up. Ones a centre, ones a Dman. One was at the trade deadline, one would be offseason. One was a rental in an expiring contract, one has a big cap hit for like 8 or 9 more years taking till he’s 41+. Get a clue rather than just calling people haters because you have no info or sense.

16 Apr 2018 07:09:07
As much as I like Weber, I think this would be a bad move for Toronto. Any realistic leaf fan should know that Toronto is a couple solid defenseman away from being a contender. Liljegren could be one of them. I don’t know why leaf fans are so quick to trade away a RH defenseman that was expected to go 3rd overall before dropping because of an off season. I think the leafs success the past couple years is making people want to rush the rebuild. Their core is still so young, there is no need to take on a big contract like Weber’s.

16 Apr 2018 07:39:28
Hahaha ya what is that comparison what? And I’m not being a hater at all I’m being logical bud.

16 Apr 2018 09:40:30
That's ok to say vbbbvvbb and I can't predict whether he will be or not. But I do know he's had a decent amount of time playing in a top six role with a pretty good offensive team in toronto and he had 30 something points last year and 28 this year I think. if I came on here and said charles hudon has the potential to be a mike Hoffman I'd be crucified lol. Like I said earlier habs have enough of those players hudon. Daneult byron just to name 3 who are at least just as good and IMO better then brown. Liligren still has the potential to be a top 4 dman but he really didn't show me much this year I give him a pass though considering it was his first year in North America and I assume he will be better next year. the first is a late one and zaitsev is a 3rd pair dman getting paid2nd pair money. Liligren and the first would be all I would even want and you know as we'll as I do that don't get you a top pair dman.

16 Apr 2018 12:27:40
Unbiased Jim I’m not saying brown is a 1 dimensional sniper I’m saying he can put up Hoffman like numbers if he reaches his full potential 25 Goals 30 Assists isn’t unreasonable.

16 Apr 2018 16:12:54
@habby, brown doesn’t play top 6. He started the season on the 4th line and has been on the 3rd line since then (bozak a and doesn’t play on the PP. he’s a great 3rd line player that could be moved up if needed.

16 Apr 2018 16:29:13
He has spent just as much time as the 3 habs players I've mentioned playing a top 6 role. He played over 16 mins a game last year and 15 mins a game this year. His numbers doesn't suggest he will be anything more then a bottom 6 winger and habs have no need for that. Weber is still a top pair dman sure there is always concern after a player has season ending surgery but nobody in montreal seems to be too concerned about him coming back and being just as good as he was last year. habs have lots of cap space and the cap is going up so there is absolutely no need to make this trade unless the goal is to get another lottery pick next year.

16 Apr 2018 17:38:38
how is it because Weber isn't a rental he's a #1D and also had much more value than hanzal why would we trade someone 1000000 times better for that and take dead cap and hanzal is a #3 center.

16 Apr 2018 18:45:02
My thoughts were there goal is to/ should be to get a lottery pick.

16 Apr 2018 20:26:22
That’s fine if you don’t want him as a player or like him. I’m just saying you claimed he has had lots of top six minutes with good players, and that’s not true. Matthews Nylander and hyman are the number 1 line and have been for 2 years. Kadri with marner and marleau is the second line and brown started with Dominic Moore and Matt Martin and now is with bozak and JVR since. That’s third line. I’m not saying they’re bad players, but bozak does not create chances like Matthews and Kadri do, and JVR is a finisher, not much else. So implying that brown got to ride shotgun with top players is not true. You don’t have to like the trade but don’t make things up to put down the guy you don’t want back lol.

16 Apr 2018 23:44:45
All I was trying to say is the habs have a enough players like connor brown don't need another.

11 Apr 2018 05:52:57
Canucks: Hutto, Granlund and beiga

Coyotes: Domi


Canucks: Edler and gagner
Canadiens : Valiev and winnipegs 4th round pick

Canucks: Nilsson and Tanev
Hurricanes: Darling and Bean

11 Apr 2018 06:09:23
Uh why does Carolina do that?

11 Apr 2018 07:14:52
Cause scott darling sucks his past 2 years he has 0.88 sp and is makeing 4.15 million a year and nilson a making 2.2 and has better stats.

11 Apr 2018 13:06:26
Darling is one of the worst contracts in the NHL he’s an AHL player being payed 4 million and Bean isn’t anything special he might be worth a lower mid first he isn’t meeting his expectations. They cancel each other out in value. Then Tanev Is a great stay at home 3rd dman on a solid contract huge no from Vancouver.

11 Apr 2018 16:06:53
@vbb, how does darling and bean cancel each other out? They’re on the same side of the trade lol I’m confused with your reasoning here.

11 Apr 2018 17:15:42
No from Canucks on all three, wow.

11 Apr 2018 20:17:56
Darlings nagitive value. As I stated he has one of the worst contracts in the nhl.

10 Apr 2018 16:01:44
Mtl : Pacioretty, Lowest 2nd
Fla : Borgstrom, Matheson, 4th

10 Apr 2018 17:59:55
Absolutely no sense for Florida. No.

10 Apr 2018 18:56:25
Panthers gave assets to get Reilly smith and his $5 mill off the books, he’s younger and just had a better season than patches. Why give assets again to replace him with someone older who is due a big raise that will come in far more than what they were paying Reilly to begin with lol.

10 Apr 2018 13:19:35
Mtl needs a center. When Danault says that you know its true. Now what can we sacrifice for him. let's see, he's 7.5 million a year for another 5 years I believe. So contract ends when he's 32 which is about the end of prime and he might start to fall back by then. So good contract in terms of year just a little stiff maybe in the dollar. Then Buff needs winger not centers so mtl offers they're big prize winger available. Ok let's try this:

Mtl: Patches, 2rd pick lowest one

Buff: Oreilly

10 Apr 2018 14:00:26
If sabres are trading o’reilly, that means they are convinced they are not going to be ready to compete for a playoff spot yet again. Why would they take an older winger with one year term left? Terrible offer. If sabres do move OReilly, with the need for good centres around the league, they.

10 Apr 2018 14:00:51
They would get a far better offer.

11 Apr 2018 11:48:58
Or @UnbiasedJimmy maybe they know they have good center depth and with Mittestad ready for this season they would of had 4 really good center in Reinhart, Mittelstad, Eichel, Oreilly. Why not trade the one who has a big salary and is older for a winger that they desperately need to play with all those centers. that's where 35+goals Patvhes steps in. And your right why trade Oreilly for one year of Patches. This trade might have to be a sign and trade kind of thing.

11 Apr 2018 18:52:41
For me it would have to be a good bargain contract if I’m buffalo in a sign and trade. Patches makes 4.5 I believe, and he deserves a raise for sure with the way the market is. But he’s coming off his worst season in 6 or 7 years and is not a guaranteed 35+ goals. So if I’m the sabres, I want his extension to be cheap to minimize the risk, and if I’m patches, I’m want to get paid what I’m worth after being a bargain for so many years. And if he’s taking a discount and giving up his right to go to UFA market, I don’t see Buffalo as the destination.

08 Apr 2018 14:37:10
Such an unrealistic trade I'm not sure why I'm posting this but I think it'd be kinda cool seeing Weber and Josi as a pair again not even sure how this works cap wise.

Montreal: Max Pacioretty 50% retained and Shea Weber

Nashville: Craig Smith, Mattias Ekholm,Elli Tolvanen And 1st rd 2019

Montreal: Gets a top 4 dman in Ekholm who could be flipped,a nice top 6 roster player, a prospect who is possed to be a star in the making and a 1st rounder to contribute to there rebuild.

Nashville: gets a number 1 dman on almost any team in the nhl obviously he isn't a top 5 dman anymore but he's still top 15 especially if paired with the right player ( a strong skater ) and they get a proven consistent 35 goal scorer.

08 Apr 2018 14:52:03
Not a chance. Weber could barely stay healthy last year and when he was, he didn't look very good. Pacioretty only has a year left; my value of him is far lower than most because I think he's too soft and streaky.

Elkholm is a strong defenceman on a great contract and Tolvanen has amazing potential. It'd be terrible for Nashville without Smith or the 1st.

No, Montreal can live with that trade.

08 Apr 2018 14:53:42
PS Pacioretty scored 17 times last season, not 35. It was likely an offseason, but 17 is still terrible and I wouldn't trade great assets for hope that he returns to his old form.

08 Apr 2018 15:49:00
Well the habs were terrible his shooting percentage was at an all time low. He did all he could if he was on your team ( philly ) with Vorchek and Giroux he’d have a 40+ Goal season.

08 Apr 2018 15:52:31
Also I disagree Weber looked slow in neutral zone but other then that he was great offensively and defensively. Just sometimes he can get burnt off the rush by faster players.

08 Apr 2018 17:35:16
If I’m nashville I wouldn’t trade tolvienen straight up for Weber and patioretty. Tolvinen has potential to be better than patches. After next season patches is going to want a significant raise and As much as I like Weber now he’s going to get much slower and he still has another 6 years or so on his contract. Ekholm is on a fantastic contract. Nashville just won the presidents trophy and have good prospects in the pipeline so it doesn’t make sense to split up the group that’s been succesfull.

08 Apr 2018 18:03:17
It jus won't happen. Nashville doesn't need Weber or Patches. and Poile already got rid of that horrible contract of Webers, no way he wants that back.

08 Apr 2018 20:14:11
I wouldn’t exactly say trading Webber for Subban is getting rid of his horrible contract especially considering bergivan offered the trade originally ( stated in the post trade interview. )

08 Apr 2018 20:18:55
Hahahahaha. Nashville laughs. Wtf.

08 Apr 2018 20:30:59
vbbbvvbb: and you said my trade was bad. Elkholm, Tolvanen, 1st, Smith for 17 goal Pacioretty and a pretty good player but cancerous contract in Weber. Laughable.

The key part of your retort was "if. he'd". If Pacioretty wasn't soft, he'd have double the number of goals. If Weber didn't have a cancerous contract, he'd be worth way more. Shoulda, woulda, coulda. Pacioretty only has 17 goals. GMs pay for production with players at his experience, not "if my shooting percentage was higher". Your trade is nowhere close.

Lastly, I think Nashville doesn't need to do too much right now other than play hockey; they obviously have a solid team and great contracts for the next few years.

If you want to fleece somebody, talk to Chiarelli and Bergevin. Oh wait, you have Bergevin. Have fun with that.

08 Apr 2018 20:50:22
Well I’m an leaf fan so my GM ( Lou/ Shanahan ) is considerably better then hextal so actually they can talk to bargain bin. And as a leaf fan Max Pac would be the leafs 3rd best winger behind Marner and Nylander. He actually may be better then them tbh but I’ll give them the benifit of the doubt considering they haven’t played on a team as horrendous as Montreal. Look at what a struggling duchene got. You can’t seriously say a gm would value patch as a 20 goal scorer they’re not as dumb as you. Anybody in their right mind know he’ll bounce back. Also it’s overrated how bad his contract is. As the cap keeps rising it’ll look better and better it is no worse then charas.

08 Apr 2018 23:25:38
This is hilarious
Both teams just walk away.

09 Apr 2018 00:08:13
Both team walk away? Are you saying Montreal wouldn't take this? They take this while laughing and running away in a heartbeat. Wow.

09 Apr 2018 00:08:54
See if it goes through on PlayStation.

09 Apr 2018 03:03:12
I have an Xbox 🤷🏼‍♂️ Also from what I remember Weber and Max Pac have ridiculous value compared to them lol ( Franchise mode )

09 Apr 2018 04:04:07
Lol easiest no for Nashville But i do agree with you tho on one thing, I’m also unsure why you even posted this.

09 Apr 2018 10:35:02
"Well I’m an leaf fan so my GM ( Lou/ Shanahan ) is considerably better then hextal"

I would disagree. Hextall is building his franchise from the net out whereas the Leafs are taking shortcuts that they drafted Matthews. The Flyers aren't as good as the Leafs now, but we will be in 2-3 years. We have a way more solid future blueline and have more goalie prospects in the system.

"Look at what a struggling duchene got. " True, but Duchene had another year on at a decent cap hit, is 2 years younger, and Dorion was involved in the trade. Poile >>>>> Dorion.

"You can’t seriously say a gm would value patch as a 20 goal scorer they’re not as dumb as you. Anybody in their right mind know he’ll bounce back. " Any GM, except Dorion, would take that 17 goal year into account while valuing him. No GM, not even Dorion, would trade the assets you were proposing.

"Also it’s overrated how bad his contract is. As the cap keeps rising it’ll look better and better it is no worse then charas. "

Weber is on contract until 2026. 2026! And he's already regressing. What are you talking about Chara for? His contract expires this year and he re-signs for another year at $5MM. How are they in any way comparable? How clueless are you?

09 Apr 2018 13:46:48
I was comparing his contract now to Charas 1st contract he signed in Boston.

10 Apr 2018 05:39:59
Hahaha Charas first contract in Boston was signed at 29 years old and was 5yrs/ 37.5 mill. Weber’s was signed at 28 years old and is 14yrs/ 110mill. Yeah buddy, virtually identical. Clueless.

10 Apr 2018 05:52:45
Cap hits were 7.5 vs 7.9 but when you’re signing a guy at 28 or 29 there is a huge chance, probably 95% or better, that that player will be worth less at 34-35 than he is today. So having that 5 year term means you either won’t want him by the time it’s up or can bring him back much cheaper. The chances of a guy being worth the same or more at 35, 36, 37 or 41 than he is at 28-29 is virtually zero meaning webers contract has taken all the burden off the player and put it all on the team. Weber’s a really good player, but his contract is the absolute furthest thing from a team friendly contract in the league.

08 Apr 2018 12:32:13
Galagher is worth considerably less than brodie, a 2nd for jankos ok value but he wouldn't be traded.

08 Apr 2018 14:23:11
Mtl takes that.

08 Apr 2018 14:55:34
Philadelphia doesn't need any more goalie prospects. Take out Gillies and Bennett and give us Fox.

08 Apr 2018 17:30:21
MB wants to build around Gallagher 's leadership and even if they get a LHD DMan for him. they won’t sacrifice him.

09 Apr 2018 03:02:34
I’ll say it again. You must not be a Flames fan. Your trades are always over payment from Calgary. MTL likes Gallagher but no way he’s worth Brodie alone let alone adding a very promising C in Jankowski.

09 Apr 2018 10:19:51
I'd take Eazy E trade

Wayne Simmonds

For

Rasmus Andersson
Adam Fox
2nd Round 2019.
