To Edmonton: 3rd pick

To Edmonton: Torey Krug
To Boston: 3rd pick

23 Jun 2018 09:27:46
Krug 3 overall jqhahahahahahahahhaha.

23 Jun 2018 17:25:48
I don’t find it that funny. Obviously it’s a terrible trade but it’s kinda weird you’d laugh that hard about a fantasy trade offer.

22 Jun 2018 03:23:58
So 3 things have been linked between the Sabres-Canadians per ((((Darren Dreger ))))1. The Canadians are extremely interested in O'Rielly and the Sabres want the 3rd overall back.

2. The Sabres are the front runners for Max Pacioretty?


Sabres- O'Rielly, Alex Nylander and 1st 2019 ( top 3 protected )

Montreal- Max Pacioretty and 3rd overall


- Alex Nylander has fallen out of favour in buffalo and probably need a change of scenery, Zandina brings an Elite winger for Eichel and Pacioretty is likely a Kane replacement who'd likely resign if wanted.

-Montreal gets one of the best 2way c in the nhl and fills the 1c hole well, Nylander has tons of talent and could excel in a new system and a potential top 10 pick next year.

22 Jun 2018 04:58:02
Lmfao and you were laughing when I posted the 4th and a 3rd for the 3rd lol. dude this is 10 times worst your basically giving patches for O'Reilly then an unproven prospect and what will prob be a mid to late pick for the 3rd overall. no chance has bite on this trash.

22 Jun 2018 12:35:34
Yeah because O’Rielly isn’t 10x as good as patches ( also isn’t a top 15 C in the NHL ) and yah man Buffalo will go from dead last to a contender you’re right. Don’t comment on posts if you have nothing to contribute.

22 Jun 2018 13:43:53
My personal opinion (Habs fan here) Is that MTL stays away from O'Rielly, He's a good center but my problem with him is Buffalo will be asking way too much to get him. The trade is alright but I just don't see O'Rielly as a 1C and for Patch and 3rd OVA i'd rather a proven 1C with a young Proven player in this trade there is too many question marks for the habs to consider. Also Buf could go from really bad to just in playoffs just look at COL this year it's not like it hasn't happened before.

22 Jun 2018 22:23:02
That’s a decent offer nylander is projected to be better then his brother.

22 Jun 2018 23:25:09
O'rielly is not 10 times better than patches lmfao what on earth do you smoke when you value players? O'Reilly had 3 60+ point seasons the best being 64 while patches had at least 5 60+ point seasons 2 of which he reached 67. if anything patches is worth more because of that plus his 4.65 million contract. and buffalo getting dahlin instantly makes them better than a lotto pick and if this deal went through they'd have another proven top 6 winger in patches and whoever they draft with 3rd overall would also be a top 6 guy making them even better yet so yeah they'd at least be fighting for a playoff spot this making montreal the clear loser of this deal genius.

I'm not a habs fan but if I was I'd be appalled at the thought of this at it would be right up there with that trashy Hoffman trade Dorian made.

I can't believe I'm defending the hand on this but get off the crack pipe vbbvbb your posts are atrocious best and pathetic at worst. it's a very good thing you don't run a teams actually management team as your be fired after your 1st couple trades.

23 Jun 2018 00:04:14
Willliam Nylanders sophomore season as a leaf

81GP 22G 39A 61P ( NHL )

Alexander Nylanders sophomore season as a Sabre
Note- still not an NHLer playing 3rd line in the AHL

NHL 3GP 1G 0A 1P AHL stats- 51GP 8G 22A

Not sure how you think he’ll be better then Willam. William out produced his AHL numbers while in the NHL.

23 Jun 2018 07:26:59
Whatever ram smokes makes him value wingers on rental contracts higher than a centerman with term, good for him. he also thinks bobby ryan has positive value, probably thinks craig anderson does too.

23 Jun 2018 19:00:04
no no no Nylander is a complete bust and buffalo will be good if we give them a ll that and they draft dahlin so 2019 first will be low heck no.

22 Jun 2018 03:01:32
Buffalo trades: O'reilly, Reinhart

Montreal trades: 3rd overall, Pacioretty

21 Jun 2018 19:46:19
Mtl: pacioretty and 2020 1rst if he doesn't sign becomes senconde if Montreal doesn't make the playoffs.

Buf: O'Reilly


22 Jun 2018 01:42:27
Apparently buffalo and Montreal are talking about a deal around O’Rielly for the 3rd ovr.

21 Jun 2018 03:21:36
To Van
Gabriel Vilardi + 2nd round pick 2018

21 Jun 2018 06:05:04
No thanks, EDM keeps lucic ain't taking on loui's contract

21 Jun 2018 06:05:33
Baertschi, 2nd, 3rd for Ristolainen oh boy you're going to get fried for this one

21 Jun 2018 07:19:17
These are all so bad lol yikes.

21 Jun 2018 13:12:57
How can u value Eriksson higher than lucic?

Lucic is younger, had a bad year and still scored 10 more points than Eriksson?

21 Jun 2018 15:59:09
Yeah, as bad as the lucic contract is, he can still contribute physically and bring an element of intimidation and protection for his team if not offense. If loui Erikson isn’t scoring 25 goals, he could never come close to earning that contract.

21 Jun 2018 16:02:23
@McJesus I’m not really sure how Hutton for a 2nd is “so bad “ but whatever.

The Risto trade made me puke.

21 Jun 2018 17:34:14
Hutton for a second is not good lol idk where you find your values at dude considering you think parayko has potential to be better than dahlin lol and you believe risto is a top 5 dman in the world 🙄 both are extremely good but bruh.

21 Jun 2018 19:14:32
Risto a top 5 dman? Top 5 dman on the Leafs maybe. Risto is a great number 2 on any team.

21 Jun 2018 19:17:10
Also if linden Vey is worth a 2nd Hutton definitely is nathen Beaulieau got a 3rd last year and that was thought to be a steal.

21 Jun 2018 00:22:44

21 Jun 2018 07:20:16
Philly does not accept that lol.

21 Jun 2018 16:00:52
3 disagrees for mcjesus? Lol really? got to be the same person 3 times. Philly laughs that offer back in a hurry.

21 Jun 2018 16:03:31
No from Montreal.

21 Jun 2018 17:35:02
Hahaha ya like what? Okay philly take that awful trade instead of getting a way better one lol.

21 Jun 2018 20:46:42
I really don’t think they can do better then that for Simmonds he had a terrible year last year they can get a 1st for him but that’s a good package maybe make Fox a better prospect.

21 Jun 2018 22:25:21
At vbb, I get he wasn’t at his best, but If 24 goals for a physical player at 3.8 million is a ‘terrible year’ then I’d be willing to pay more than this because his ‘normal’ should be great. You don’t trade a player like that with a year left on a steal of a cap hit if the pkg doesn’t have a 1st or a top prospect. This has neither. It’s known I like Simmonds over patches, but habs couldn't justify trading pacioretty without a 1st or really good top prospect coming back, and patches had a worse season than Simmonds.

21 Jun 2018 22:45:58
Rasmus Anderson instead of Fox?

21 Jun 2018 00:00:06
VBB i am sincerly sorry for my insult i directed towards you. Hockey is a very passionate hobby of mine and i can go over board with my love for my hockey team haha. But another news, i have a trade idea.

3 way trade

• (C) Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
• (C) Brandon Sutter
• (D) Noah Juulsen
• (D) Chris Tanev
• (LW) Milan Lucic
• (2018) 10th Overall - EDM
• (2019) 2nd Round Pick - MTL
• (RW) Arturri Lekhonen

EDM sends away Ryan Nugent-Hopkin, Milan Lucic and 10th Overall Selection.
MTL sends away Arturri Lekhonen, 2nd Round Pick, Noah Juulsen.
VAN sends away Chris Tanev, Brandon Sutter.

( MTL drafts Filip Zadina )

Fair trade? what are your thoughts?

Projected Line-Up:

Pacioretty - Nugent-Hopkins - Drouin
Domi - Danault - Zadina
Byron - Sutter - Gallagher
Hudon - Shaw - Sherbak

21 Jun 2018 05:19:20
Get rid of sutter. Last thing Montreal needs is a 3rd line center that MB overvalues and plays on the first line.

21 Jun 2018 07:49:09
Holy that’s horrific for Edmonton.

21 Jun 2018 16:06:17
It’s okay haha and Montreal is the clear winner of the trade.

22 Jun 2018 14:03:29
EDM gets fleeced.

20 Jun 2018 00:13:16
Montreal trades: Pacioretty, 2nd round pick, 3rd round pick 2019

Chicago: 8th overall

19 Jun 2018 22:23:37
MTL: 3rd overall

VAN: 7th overall, Ben Hutton

MTL is strongly rumoured to be taking kotkaniemi or even veleno at 3rd cause they desperately need a center so why not trade down so they don’t go off the board and pick up maybe a bottom 6 or even possibly a top 4 dman that needs a change of scenery and canucks potentially draft Zadina who would help their lw Depth.

20 Jun 2018 01:26:10
I've never heard one rumor suggesting they will take veleno at 3rd and I've read a lot of rumors. and ben hutton doesn't move you up 4 spots, probably not even 1 spot tbh.

20 Jun 2018 02:04:40
They can get a better if they are moving down that far

20 Jun 2018 02:43:07
EVEN tho Habs want to draft Kotkaniemi, there will prob be a bidding war for 3, and its going to cost more than a #5 dman.

21 Jun 2018 04:35:28
Have have a lot of great defence...I don't see it.

19 Jun 2018 21:34:07
Hearing that Habs really want to get Draisaitl;
So here are my trades to make this work.

Oilers; Gallagher, Benn, #3 overall, our 4th rdp

Habs; Draisaitl, #10 overall, Sekera

- Then -

Oilers; O'Reilly, Ristolainen

Buff; Lucic, Benning, Yamamoto

- Then -

Draft Brady Tkachuk @ #3
Sign Chimera @ 1yr/1.5 mill

19 Jun 2018 21:54:34
Buffalo laughs at that trade proposal.
Oilers aren't reading Drai, I would be so shocked and pissed. Lol
Montreal is locked in on Kotkaneimi and are prepared to take him at 3rd overall if they don't trade down a few spots.

19 Jun 2018 22:07:32
I don’t know what to the no of the first one. Buffalo laughs hard at the second tho.

19 Jun 2018 22:09:15
Lucid benning and Yamamoto doesn't get oreilly or risto for sure not both.

19 Jun 2018 22:18:01
Oilers Will never trade drai for that 😂.

19 Jun 2018 22:24:24
Haha add mcdavid to the second offer then buffalo accepts.

19 Jun 2018 22:25:26
Id be all over that for Habs. I don't see Edmonton on board.

19 Jun 2018 22:39:38
So you just get to bend Buffalo over and take what you want?

19 Jun 2018 22:45:46
Trade 1- this is a big no from Edmonton Drais>>3rd ovr

Trade 2- Ohh my this is probably the worst trade I’ve seen on this site. Risto would instantly become the oilers best dman. He got THE HARDEST minutes in the nhl on the worst team and still put up decent numbers. I’d give William Nylander for him in a heartbeat. O’Rielly is a number 1 2way c this package dosent get either alone.

Risto is going no where buffalo would be Insane to trade him Dahlin and Risto will make one of the best D pairs in NHL history.

19 Jun 2018 22:54:00
Replace Yamamoto with the 3rd overall and the 2nd trade is not too bad IMO. But no way from the Oil on the 1st trade anyway. Lol.

20 Jun 2018 00:35:28
The first trade is so bad it made my eyes bleed and almost the same for the second but for Buffalo hahaha this post hurts me oh gosh.

20 Jun 2018 02:07:21
Oilers laugh, Buffalo laughs. i'd do Draisaitl and Lucic for Weber and 3rd overall lol

21 Jun 2018 21:47:05
Wowza this is all over the place.

No from Oilers on trade number one, Drais >>> Gallagher, and honestly, Montreal seems set on Kotkaniemi, so dropping to 10 won’t affect then that much. Drais>>#3 overall anyway, and even if Gallagher= 10, the other spare parts won't make up the difference. And Sekeras negative value doesn't make up the difference either. Big no from Oil.

Second trade is laughable from Buffalo. That package doesn’t even land one of ROR or Risto, and you want both? c'mon man. Lucic basically cancels out Yamamoto, so Benning for two very good NHLers? Lol. Big, big, big no from Buffalo. that's like Moulson + Beaulieu + Guhle + 2nd for Larsson + RNH ++. Lol.

And Chimeras trash btw.

19 Jun 2018 21:06:47
cgy:brodie stone mangiapane
tor: nylander, hyman

cgy: ferland bennet

cgy:gillies fox 4th
nyr: bostons 1st.

19 Jun 2018 22:47:23
If you combined all the peices in all 3 trades from Calgary and offered it for Nylander the leafs would still not consider.

19 Jun 2018 22:58:13
Lol no from Toronto. Brodie and some throw aways for Nylander AND Hyman? Get real lol.

20 Jun 2018 04:09:11
@Franchise billy isn’t that term considered unacceptable now days? Regardless you’re a biased flames fan who obviously has no input to create an argument against my statement so I’ll teach you what hockey is you have a lot to learn.

First of all Nylander is an Elite 20 year old RW who is exactly what the flames need. He’s very likely 70-80 point player consitently in his prime

What I said was clearly an exaggeration but I’ll break down this deal



Bodie, Fox, Stone, Mangiapane, Ferland, Bennet, Gilles and a 4th.


Player Toronto would want- Bodie, Fox and Bennet

The rest while may be valuable to the flames organization contribute absolutely nothing for the leafs.

Fox is probably going to test UFA like Kevin Hayes, Jimmy Hayes and other college players that chose that route.

Bennet is a player I personally love I think he’ll develop into a Derrick Brassard type but his value is at an all time low

Bodie is coming off a terrible season and his value is also at an all time low IMO I believe he’ll fall off the radar much like Jack Johnson. Still a decent piece tho.

While the value may be there and possibly even be in Toronto’s favour but leafs do not take it.

20 Jun 2018 05:11:42
Pretty well put by vbb actually. You don’t trade a guy like Nylander for spare parts. You trade him for an equal value player, hopefully in the same age bracket (20-24) in a more needed position. A hurricanes-leafs deal could be done. Something around Nylander for hanifin maybe because canes need scoring and have lots of young D and leafs need D with an abundance of wingers. But to trade a guy with his skill and potential for that? And have Hyman in there too? He’s a really good penalty killer who never takes a shift off, put up 40 pts (playing with Matthews obviously helps that) and is signed for 2.25 mill for 4 years. That’s a valuable piece too.

20 Jun 2018 06:35:49
Ya but Nylander > Brodie, Fox & Bennett? c'mon there's a lot of quality there. Young D Prospect, Top 4 Dman, a young former 4th overall pick. don't tell me Toronto doesn't take that.

20 Jun 2018 11:28:53
Yeahhhhhhhh Torornot doesnt.

We spent a lot of time building up this foundation. We aren't trading Nylander for ‘pieces’ were trading him for ‘one solid piece’: (dman; hamilton, hanifin, etc), whild adding a bit.

20 Jun 2018 15:38:49
Agreed with top shelf would you trade Guadreau for Gardiner, Kadri and Dermotte? That’s also a way better package then the 3 you offered.

20 Jun 2018 15:57:04
@franchisebilly, yeah, I’m telling you leafs wouldn’t take that for nylander. But the trade also has hyman going. Hyman is a better player than Bennet currently, still young and signed cheap. Bennett has a higher ceiling if he ever reaches it, I’m not denying that. But today, you’re a better team with hyman on the ice than Bennett. Call them even for simplification. That leaves Brodie and fox for nylander?! No thanks. Willy goes for a big upgrade on D, which Brodie just isn’t. He’s a good Dman. We have 3 good Dmen (Gardiner, Rielly, zaitsev) and a young guy who might be really good in Dermott.

20 Jun 2018 23:46:13
I see your points. A more fair trade would be Hamilton for Nylander but comparing Gardiner to Brodie and Gaudreau to Nylander is kinda off. i'm just saying those are 3 really good pieces, i'm sure that package wouldn't be that bad of a return

19 Jun 2018 14:31:00
MON: 3rd Overall Pick 2018
OTT: Duschene

19 Jun 2018 14:36:12
It's rumoured Montreal is looked in on Kotkaneimi now and are prepared to take him at 3 if they don't trade down a few spots.

19 Jun 2018 21:04:54
They won't get Duchene for the 3rd unless ottawa has a deal locked in to sign Tavares to replace him. pageau is not a number 1 center.

20 Jun 2018 04:53:30
Haha tavares signing in Ottawa? Rambo, that’s dumber than you saying hoffman would get a top 10 pick and prospect lol Ottawa’s best players are jumping ship, the team is bad, managers are molesting teenagers on work trips lol figure it out man, it’s a sinking ship and JT is not spending his prime trying to keep another organization afloat.

20 Jun 2018 12:03:39
Ottawa has to keep Duchene and find someone to play with him instead. Dorion has to be careful and not give more than he gets in return as he has done in the past like Bergevin has done as well. Yzerman always gets more than what he trades away. Why can't both Bergevin and Dorion do the same. Dorion (Melnyk) . Bergevin (Molson) . wake the f"$%k up.

21 Jun 2018 19:21:13
Agreed hawks this Dorian garbage needs to stop. pits trade was the only one he got right.

Unbiasedjim I'd call you a fool but a fool is actually useful you're more like a mob with no door. if it was Dorian making the Hoffman trade we definately could have gotten at least a top 10 pick we just have a dumbass running our team right now. its trades like that which make us miss Bryan Murray even more. he would have gotten a top 10 pick and then some for hoff.

21 Jun 2018 21:45:39
Duchene is acc very good (even though he had a slow start). 8 goals and 8 assists in his last 14 games (on the 2nd worst nhl team). I would say montreal adds

19 Jun 2018 04:06:34
to Ottawa
3rd overall
3rd rounder
5th rounder

to Montreal
4th overall
2nd rounder

Montreal really wants someone below Zadina so it makes sense to move down so someone el.

19 Jun 2018 04:20:17
whoops didn't finish that but yall get the picture.

19 Jun 2018 06:18:40
Don’t know why Montreal does that.

19 Jun 2018 14:37:54
i don't get why teams trade down to get a player rather than just selecting the player with their higher pick?

19 Jun 2018 21:16:10
Because other teams don't want same player who will be available later anyway so why not move down a bit to aquire more picks? Is that really hard for you to understand?

21 Jun 2018 21:43:31
Ottawa doesn't have a 2nd rounder this year. But if they did, not bad for both teams

18 Jun 2018 11:47:04
• Mike Hoffman
• Jean Gabriel-Pageau
• (2018) 2nd Round Pick
• 3rd Overall Selection

Who adds?

Max Pacioretty - Jonathan Drouin - Brendan Gallagher
Mike Hoffman - Jean Gabriel-Pageau - Arturri Lekhonen
Max Domi - Philip Danault - Charles Hudon
Paul Byron - Andrew Shaw - Nicholas Deslauries

18 Jun 2018 13:55:33
Mtl isn’t trading 3rd overall for 3 worthless pieces.

18 Jun 2018 14:13:15
No one will touch Hoffman. Montreal isn't going to trade there 1st.

18 Jun 2018 14:55:00
Habs have been trying to rid themselves of locker room problems for years not I doubt they try and add one like hoffman.

18 Jun 2018 03:15:03
Rights to RFA Claesson

8th overall

Chicago gets to go for cup again. Draft won’t help with their age, , Hoffman does and they can use cheap, reliable young D.

Ottawa gets Zadina at 4 and Walhstrom at 8 and has rebuilt. Sign Wideman and EK.

Everyone’s happy! . Except Montreal who has Domi instead of Gally.

18 Jun 2018 15:04:00
That dosent get 8th overall.

19 Jun 2018 11:25:50
It definitely does get at least 8th overall vbbvbb.

17 Jun 2018 18:22:09
Mtl: Domi

Arizona: Chuck

Overall like the trade for both teams both really good young players Domi needed a place like mtl and Chuck needed a place like Arizona. I would of liked to have a second rd pick but eh at keast we get more then what Yakupov got lol

17 Jun 2018 18:38:39
He got traded look up details before you make a trade.

17 Jun 2018 20:30:32
Uhhhh skittles, he's tryna state his opinion on the trade.


17 Jun 2018 20:42:32
Win for the habs. Domi will flourish in montreal. Habs rid themselves of some more baggage.

17 Jun 2018 20:55:48
@Habby while you may be happy with Domi. It’s definitely not a loss for Arizona.

17 Jun 2018 21:08:36
Nobody can really tell if it’ll be a loss or not until this upcoming season is done with. Good hockey trade!

17 Jun 2018 22:06:58
Habby, Why when I criticized galchenyuk I was biased and picking on him and you defended him but now that he is not a Hab, he’s just baggage lol talk about bias, Jesus. All over Twitter and the web is habs fans and fans from around the league saying habs got ripped off and Bergevin is brutal. But you find a way to make it a win when domi has 6 career goals more than galchenyuk had in 2016. Domi had 9 goals last year and 4 of them were empty netters lol justify this trade all you want. I don’t know how as a fan of this team you can’t be calling for Bergevin to be fired after the last 2 years of disasters.

18 Jun 2018 00:54:20
UnbiasedJim the Habs are adding an Elite empty net scorer compared to a failed center 😉.

18 Jun 2018 03:34:08
Lol apparently. I’m just saying, have whatever opinion you want of the trade, I think domi has a lot of skill and might break out as a hab, it’s possible. But habby had been adamantly calling me biased and a hab hater for saying galchenyuk was overrated by habs fans, now galchenyuk hasn’t been on their team for 20 hours and he was just ‘baggage’ that they needed to ‘rid’ themselves of lol have your opinion, but stick to it even if a jersey changes on the players.

18 Jun 2018 11:44:14
It was pacioretty not galchenyuk if you remember correctly jim. You were biased cause you criticized every player on montreal. and to be honest pacioretty can go to as far as I'm concerned I just argued that he was better then saad and I stand by that. anyway. I'd like to see the habs unload about half of the players on this current roster. but especially the floaters like galchenyuk. Talent don't mean much if your too lazy to use it. how can a trade be considered bad for this team? . They suck! All these players and a few more too should have been traded 3 years ago like I said at the time when most other hab fans were on twitter arguing saying they are close and should keep the core together.

18 Jun 2018 11:46:38
Plus jim if you wanna scroll through the web some more you will find the leafs were after domi too. And the penguins offered conor sheary and one of there top forward prospects for him. so he has value at least as much as galchenyuk. it was a good hockey trade. two guys who were not performing up to expectations with there current team. i'd honestly take domi because he does a bit more when he's not putting up points and he's faster then galchenyuk.

18 Jun 2018 13:28:13
Actually it was both patches and galchenyuk. And when I said I’d give up patches 5 extra goals a year for Simmonds because he does so many other things if things aren’t going well for him offensively, and you said that I was habs hating lol but you use those words to describe domi over chuck and it makes sense? Lol how can you not think that’s biased? You pick based on jersey. Simmonds is consistently a lot closer to keeping up offensively to patches than domi is to chuck, so what has domi shown you that he does away from the puck that allows him to close a gap that Simmonds couldnt? Lol.

18 Jun 2018 13:36:45
And it’s not just you. I added Kerby Rychel as a throw-in in a trade to get gudbransson at the deadline and Colt said he was a bust and no one wanted that garbage, a week later he was a Hab and he said he’s really impressed with him and thinks he could play third line for them. I see a trend in Montreal there.

18 Jun 2018 14:59:24
Domi and galchenyuk both have the same career ppg. I'd consider that pretty close in keeping up on offense. Also pacioretty was close to winning a frank selke a couple years ago which hardly ever happens for a winger so he probably does a little more then score which you try to imply. see how your biased? the difference with me when I say things like this is they are actually true and make sense.

18 Jun 2018 15:01:46
Plus as of now kerby rychel Is still a bust so don't use other peoples opinon to try and build your argument toward me. As you pointed out yourself my opinion is different then most other hab fans on the web lol.

18 Jun 2018 15:27:04
Yeah because most habs fans want Bergevin fired. He traded a 27 year old #1 D, a 19 year old Top D prospect and a very talented (albeit not complete) top 6 F in the last 2 seasons and never got back a Centreman (the biggest need of the team for a decade) . That’s a fail no matter how much you want to argue it.

18 Jun 2018 15:31:30
And saying getting Domi is good because Toronto apparently wanted him too doesn’t help lol because they clearly didn’t want him at that price, or they would have had him. And saying penguins offered Sheary and a top prospect came from who?! Because I also read online that Arizona turned down Auston Maththews for OEL which never happened. Unless the penguins confirm what they offered, I don’t buy it.

18 Jun 2018 16:21:48
We'll your the web guy man lol. It was actually Arizonas choice of sheary or rust plus a top forward prospect. And the point I was making about the leafs were if they wanted domi then he must be awesome right?

18 Jun 2018 16:23:17
Plus toronto has a core of 4 or 5 guys that they wouldn't move and I guess there was nothing else arizona wanted.

18 Jun 2018 16:24:46
Yeah we could have traded Seth jones for ryan johannson like that genius david Poile did or we can tank for a few more years and draft one like everyone else.

18 Jun 2018 16:43:29
Yeah, David Poile and Nashville is really who habs need to criticize about decision making because their in such a bad spot the last 2-3 years right? lol and the most votes pacioretty ever got in one season for Selke trophy was 156. Bergeron and toews both had over 1000 votes that year and Bergeron had almost 1200 this year. If that’s ‘almost winning’ the selke, then Connor Brown ‘almost won’ the rocket Richard last season with 20 goals lol you’re rediculous haha.

18 Jun 2018 17:00:06
Yeah he finished 6th in selke voting that year not bad for a left winger. he got those votes by not doing anything but score goals right? And I already said it's a trophy which almost always goes to a center an so I'm quite aware of how many votes bergeron and toews get. how many did simmonds get jim?

18 Jun 2018 17:04:30
And Nashville is not in much better a spot then the habs were a few years ago so until they actually win a cup who cares. You know like Ottawa was last year yeah they had it all figured out too hey? What I don't understand is how someone can come on here and pump the leafs tires and shoot down the habs and Sens but yet even after getting spoon fed 3 top players in 3 drafts still can't get out of the 1st round. And I'm rediculous? Your funny man.

18 Jun 2018 17:19:43
Spoon fed players? Matthews was spoon fed to us like most #1 picks. 7 guys were picked ahead of Nylander, and a lot of people wanted hanifin over marner. Nylander was picked in almost the same spot as sergachev. So habs were spoon fed sergachev then too, they just traded him away without solving a team need, blame bergy, not leafs lol.

18 Jun 2018 17:26:12
And the only way nashville 2 years ago were the same as habs are now is they had Shea Weber on them. Habs now have him, but the don’t have a Josi, an Ellis, an ekholm behind him or a forsberg or Johansen up front. Best they have is patches to be the preds James Neal from that roster.

18 Jun 2018 17:42:57
I said Nashville is in no better spot then the habs were a few years ago at least read the post before arguing with it. I'll give you nylander that was a good pick. I would have took ehlers though. And if they hadn't taken marner and picked hanifin they would still be just as we'll off. Plus every fan wouldn't be trying to trade nylander for a dman then. I'm not blaming the leafs for anything I applauded that they actually had the sense to do a rebuild after 50 years of futility. but even you would have to admit the matthews and marner picks could have been done by someone with there eyes closed even if they had picked hanifin and laine they would still be in the same boat.

18 Jun 2018 19:15:12
No, because had they taken laine and hanifin they would be looking for a number one centre like they have been since sundin. Then we would have had to trade hanifin at 19 years old for a winger and try to force him to be a centre. Lol (see what I did there? ) regardless, it’s into stuff that wasn’t the original point: the moment galchenyuk wasn’t a hab, he was ‘baggage’. You can deny that’s team bias if you want, but it’s pretty obvious it is. I’m done.

18 Jun 2018 22:17:24
They could still have nylander as a center and there defence would at least be better probably still a team that gets to the 1st round of the playoffs see what I did there lol.

18 Jun 2018 23:37:23
We don’t force wingers to play top line centre. Not a plan for success. See how the third try for Bergevin is after galchenyuk and Drouin because he’s so dumb that while announcing his trade for Domi he says “he’s played some centre too” lol there’s an old saying that the definition of insanity is attempting the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Just sayin.

19 Jun 2018 04:24:26
He also said they see him as winger but he could play center in a jam. Don't really sound that crazy to me. Another sign of insanity is hair on your knuckles. I bet you just looked. Didn't you? Lol.

19 Jun 2018 04:29:05
Nylander has played a fair amount of center over his young career.

17 Jun 2018 16:33:33
WPG: Little, Perreault
MON: 3rd Overall Pick 2018

17 Jun 2018 17:31:26
No comment.

17 Jun 2018 17:54:10
Wow! Some guys really overrate the value of draft picks.

17 Jun 2018 18:08:57
Man Montreal needs to add way way more not even close my dude.

17 Jun 2018 18:13:20
Seriously memarcusjoe? Two 30 year old, easily replaceable top 9 forwards for the 3rd overall. I know you’re a jets fan but the value is there.

17 Jun 2018 19:47:11
Little is a 2C and the Jets are a contending team. Giving away two good roster players for a pick that won't help us for 2 or 3 years doesn't help the Jets at all. As I said way too many people place too high a value on shiny new toys. The value just is not there, at least for the Jets.

17 Jun 2018 19:54:06
They’re career 40 point guys. If Toronto was offered the 3rd overall for Bozak (if he had a contract) and a similar player, I’d be all over it. Why do you think that McJ?

17 Jun 2018 20:32:11
Memarcus your crazy man. what's fair value for Little? Kessel? Or like Marner? Lmao. Little isn’t getting traded because he is a 2C on a contending team, but his value is a low first. Not a high first, lmao. Little is basically Tyler Bozak with term. so, I woukdnt say his value is exceptionally high, lol.

17 Jun 2018 20:41:22
lollll never happening keep your old players.

17 Jun 2018 20:41:58
I can see doing it for Bozak, he's a disaster defensively and is nowhere near Little talent wise.
Plus, you still haven't addressed how this helps the Jets when they already have more NHL ready prospects than they can fit on the team as it is.

17 Jun 2018 21:02:10
It’s good for the Jets Because Zandina would put up 40 goals along side Wheeler and Schifele while only being 18,on a ELC and gaining cap space to sign a better 2c like Stasny. Niether of this players are a starter point for the 3rd overall. Try Ehlers/ Trouba+.

17 Jun 2018 21:03:23
I understand your point about it not being what the jets need because they are contenders. However, the value is there. Little would be best suited as a 3rd line Center, just like Bozak. They both played above their heads for years because they had to. Don’t think Little is anything special, cause he’s not.

17 Jun 2018 21:09:42
I don’t think anyone got my joke 😢
But for real this is so so so bad for Montreal lmao heats.

17 Jun 2018 21:10:15
They need to build up through the draft and build their young core. They aren’t contenders anymore.

17 Jun 2018 22:21:47
Zadina>Little next year, lmao.

Zadina's NHL ready. Zadina will be better than Little next yera. Zadina has 60-70 point capabilities. Little doesn't.

Boom. there's your explanation.

And don't tell me 'he isn't proven'. Laine, Matthews, Eichel, McDavid, Ekblad, all of them high picks flourished. Zadina could go #2 or #3, and he and Svech are basically identical talents, with different skillsets, but both are excellent talented players.

Both are better than Little. And will be next year. End of story.

17 Jun 2018 23:04:22
Yup, Svech and Zadina are can't miss prospects just like Yakupov was. You guys go ahead and trade your good roster players for magic beans. It will keep you near the bottom of the standings for years to come instead of Stanley Cup contenders like the Jets.

18 Jun 2018 00:36:58
If the Jets are going to be trading those 2 players I expect they would want a top 6 forward player or a A prospect. The Jets don't need this pick which will be good in 2/ 3 years for two players that bring a lot to the team. Plus I hope Montreal isn't so stupid as to trade away a #3 overall pick, but after all it is Bergevin.

18 Jun 2018 02:04:53
I agree. Montreal needs to keep the pick and start re-building properly through the draft instead of trying for quick fixes. It may be a long road, but they can't fix the team they currently have, especially with an idiot like Bergevin at the helm.

18 Jun 2018 20:58:00
That’s big talk for a team that has had one good season in team history.

17 Jun 2018 04:10:32

Sam Bennett for Max Pacioretty

Mtl needs centers and Cal needs scoring. but idk if value is fair tho..

17 Jun 2018 08:14:49
No from MTL

16 Jun 2018 18:57:52
WPG: Perrault
MON: 2nd Round Pick 2018 (WSH), 2nd Round Pick 2018 (TOR)

16 Jun 2018 20:59:00
I like Perrault but I think if habs trade for a center its gunna be a top 6 center.
Rather keep those picks and sweeten up Montreal’s weak prospect pool.

16 Jun 2018 21:20:10
Perreault would return more than that and I don't think the Jets want to move him.

16 Jun 2018 23:43:55
That would be a great offer for Perreault but I believe that Chevy would try to bundle him in a package that may include Myers, Petan, Kulikov Mason and Copp to get a better return. The Jets have 4 or 5 players ready to step up to the big team so they can afford to make 4 for 1/ 2 players, draft choices or prospects.

17 Jun 2018 05:12:59
I want a deal that includes Kulikov.

17 Jun 2018 08:05:15
The Jets could get more for Perreault.

17 Jun 2018 15:28:47
After this last trade by Montreal, If they want Perrault I bet they offer Pacioretty.

17 Jun 2018 15:29:04
Why would you want kulikov lol?

16 Jun 2018 06:48:31
MTL 1 rd pick Max domi.

Carolina 1rd pick

16 Jun 2018 11:58:29
why? montreal just traded galchenyuk for domi. unless they can't negotiate a contract i don't see them flipping him that quickly.
