(single word yields best result)

10 Sep 2017 03:08:47
- Mattias Ekholm
- Calle Jarnkrok
- 3rd

- Matt Duchene

Makes Nashville good up the middle.

- Johansen -
- Duchene -
- Bonino -

Even if they wanted to invest in a cheap young center, they could always pry Sam Bennett outta Calgary for a comparable RW or a small package

10 Sep 2017 15:52:32
No way from Nashville. Have u seen Ekholm's contract! Freakin steal and a half. Plus they can't give him up since Ellis won't be back for 4-6 months.

10 Sep 2017 16:17:54
Lol no. With Ellis out now for a bit they aren't trading Ekholm. Colorado asked a month ago about ekholm and Nashville said no.

10 Sep 2017 18:00:15
Ekholm is under rated. I wouldn't do this from a Nashville side of things.

11 Sep 2017 01:51:14
I agree with all the Eckholm love. Very good, under rated player.

17 Aug 2017 17:37:05
Tor- JVR and Bracco or conditional 3rd.
Nash- fabbro.

Tor gets the d man, young with lots of potential, fits in with the rebuild and won't be playing in nashvilles top 4 for the foreseeable future ( not because of lack of skill Nashville has arguably best top 4 d core in league). Nashville gets top 6 power forward to replace James Neil, on a good contract and can help them win next season. Pick is conditional on JVR resigning. If he doesn't resign they get bracco if he does they get the 3rd.

18 Aug 2017 02:09:02
Nashville make it out like bandits.

18 Aug 2017 12:50:48
Fabbro is not ready for the NHL, no way Toronto even considers this.

18 Aug 2017 13:57:57
Getting a little old hear every Toronto trade being JVR, try someone else for a change.

17 Aug 2017 08:02:39
AVS: Jarnkrok, fabbro, 1st

NSH: Duchene, 3rd round pick

Thoughts on this? I think good for both teams

17 Aug 2017 15:14:38
Yeah what about Byron + T. Mitchell + 10$ for Johansen . yeah that's totally fair for both teams.

17 Aug 2017 16:00:39
I actually think this could be close to realistic.

Nashville gives up their best D-prospect, a young Center who plays 3C but might be an ok 2C and a late first

For a 1st line Center in Duchene.

I see these two as trading partners, however I feel value wise this benefits Preds a little. So drop the 3rd and Preds add something small.

This looks close considering the ask is a young d-man. Nice job.

@KeyHabs Montreal can't do that anymore since they moved Sergachev, so Duchene isn't your teams answe but it might be for Nashville.

18 Aug 2017 11:26:52
KeyHabs, that comment made you look really stupid.

24 Jul 2017 07:53:17
3 team trade

Pittsburgh Järnkrok
Gets 3rd line center on great contract

Nashville Duchene
Gets 2nd line center

Colorado Määtä + Daniel Sprong+ 1st rounder from Nashville
Gets young top dman + prospect and pick.

What do you think?

24 Jul 2017 09:12:24
Pittsburgh loses this so bad.

24 Jul 2017 09:17:45
How on earth does Pittsburgh pay Maatta and sprong and only get back jarnkrok? No way Pittsburgh will do this. and in fact Nashville gets Duchene for only Jarnkrok and probably a late 1st? In this trade Nashville robs Pittsburgh in my opinion.

24 Jul 2017 12:13:47
Must admit that i maybe don't know Sprongs value.
Järnkrok is underrated regarding skill and have a great contract.
Is offensivly talented and would fit great as 3rd line center.
Määtä feels expendable with letang-dumoulin and schultz-cole as top 4.

24 Jul 2017 15:33:59
Preds get a steal, pens get ripped off and avs could do worse, but could definitely do better on duchene too.

24 Jul 2017 18:18:41
If it was a slight upgrade from Nashville I think it would be not bad. Fabbro instead of the 3rd?

25 Jul 2017 01:09:15
Ebs, There was no 3rd from Nashville. They traded jarnkrok and their first (should be late) and got duchene lol. It's bad.

25 Jul 2017 01:36:06
Yeah I misread that. But Jarnkrok, Fabbro and a 1st isn't all that bad is it? Pittsburg could use a good D prospect so it might be enough to make them bite. It's not realistic but that one change makes it a lot closer IMO.

25 Jul 2017 15:00:34
Yeah. It makes it a lot closer.

26 Jul 2017 13:37:28
With the changes to this trade, as proposed by ebs, what isthe purpose of Pittsburgh being involved?
Jarnkrok Fabbro and a 1st should be a package Colorado would be interested in for Duchene.

21 Jul 2017 15:55:27
Bruins Trade :
-David Krejci
-Adam McQuaid

Nashville Trades:
-Ryan Ellis

trade 2

Bruins Trade
-Brandon Carlo
-Malcolm Subban
-Austin Czarnik

Colorado Trades
-Matt Duchene
-2017 2nd.

21 Jul 2017 16:29:16
I doubt Nashville will take on the Krejci contract to be honest. They also have their C in Bonino (also on a big-ish contract) .

As a Bruins fan, I'd hate to see trade 2. We are trying to build defense, because we have none, and the idea that they'd trade a high potential guy like Carlo for yet another center is so stupid in my opinion.

21 Jul 2017 16:30:43
The second trade is good but the first is horrible.

21 Jul 2017 16:39:33
Preds aren't going to trade any of their Top 4 Defenseman group that carried them deep into the playoffs and especially not for two old veterans. They won't even trade them for Duchene for that matter. So your first trade essentially is unbelievable.

The second trade doesn't look like it's enough for Duchene let alone AVs adding the pick. Duchene straight up is worth more then the package you offered. Not as insane as Sakic wants mind you but definitely more then what you proposed.

22 Jul 2017 04:44:32
If Preds trade a top four D it would be for a way better center than Kricji in my opinion.
And Ellis is more valuable than him anyways.

22 Jul 2017 13:42:41
COLORADO offered Duchene for Carlo straight up and Bruins declined. If anyone wants to argue this I can find a source.

14 Jul 2017 14:39:30
Duschene Trades

COL: Duschene
NYI: Barzal, Pulock, 1st Round Pick 2018 (CGY)

COL: Duschene
CLB: Murray, PLD

COL: Duschene
CAR: Pesce, Fluery, Gauthier

COL: Duschene
NSH: Fabbro, Fiala, 1st Round Pick 2018

14 Jul 2017 15:17:52
All of those are an overpayment for Duchene. He's a good player, but not worth that - at least I wouldn't pay that. Sakic has set the bar too high.

14 Jul 2017 17:05:04
Why can't anyone spell Duchene lol however I think those are all quality offers for him.

14 Jul 2017 17:05:22
But I can't see the other teams giving up that much for him.

14 Jul 2017 17:09:19
The Caroline trade is the biggest joke.

11 Jul 2017 02:17:57
I am re-posting this. I received 9 believable 19 unbelievable. Unbelievable does not indicated who needs to add or who would not accept the trade at all. Please provide as much feedback as possible. It is a small trade but championships are built on small trades:
Buffalo trades Josh Gorges (retain 50%) and 2018 2nd to Boston for Kevan Miller.
The are only 3 years difference in age 32 v 29 respectively.
Their ice time is almost identical: EvS 18:48 v 17:47 and SH 2:40 v 2:00 with Gorges getting more of each. Neither gets much PP time 1:35 and 3:14 minutes for the year respectively
Gorges cap is $3,900,000 for 1 yr, Miller is $2,500,000 for 3 yr.
Gorges does not score as much as Miller pts 6 v 13
Boston only has 2 L-D, Buffalo only has 2 R-D.

11 Jul 2017 04:46:01
Why do you need feedback so badly? It's not that bad of a trade as you can see by the response (believables, un)

This isn't a real trade, or are you the real Tim Murray?

Idk why this means so much to you to repost it twice just to get a response.

11 Jul 2017 13:57:58
Maybe this is how the Sabres really make trades?! Tim Murray goes on multiple forums and hopes fans will talk him out of mistakes lol.

11 Jul 2017 15:44:23
For my honest opinion on the trade tho, Boston likes kevan Miller enough to let the much younger Colin Miller be exposed when they could only protect one of the two. They were willing to take that age gap hit for the positives in his game but don't see them taking another 3 year age hit unless it's a much better player who happens to be older. That's just not the case with josh georges.

11 Jul 2017 17:18:22
Unbiased Jim and TB3, thank you. I want to propose trades that are equal and the only way to do that is to get the sort of feedback that you provided. From what you two are saying the trade is close but Boston would not make it. That makes perfect sense.

11 Jul 2017 17:24:27
I only wish Tim had asked about trades, he would never have traded McNaab and 2 2nds for players who are bottom 6 forwards, He would have Spooner from Boston and Pearson from LAK. I am so glad he is gone. He took a last place team with a future and made it a last place team with no future.

03 Jul 2017 02:17:26
Couple of notes.

Kruger to LV for free. Like the move from LV's perspective they get a decent 3rd liner (yes, he is overpaid) and also get a second (via TVR) .

Price gets his megadeal, 10.5 per/ 8 years. Love the deal for Montreal honestly. Without Price, this team drops like an anchor to the bottom of the sea. He's making the same money as Toews (imo, Price>>>Toews), and is only 0.5 million more expensive than Kopitar, a guy who had an awful year, and imo, doesn't deserve 10 million.

Marleau to the Leafs, 6 million per/ 3 years. Don't care about the dollar figure, until i factored in the term. I relatively couldn't care if Marleau was making 8 million / 2 years, I just wished it was 2 years. The reason for the worry over the term, Matthews and Marner. Both have two years left on their ELC's. that's why I don't understand Marleau for 3. Maybe he's making less than what JVR would have made? I don't know. But I liked the deal at first, but i do not like the term.

Kuznetsov for 7.6/ 8 years. His bird celly is goofy and all, but at the end of the day, the guy can play hockey. This deal is really good, especially considering last year was a down year for Kuzy. This basically allows the Caps to have a Russian dynamo take over once Ovie leaves. Raises a concern for the Preds however, how much is Ryan Johansen going to make? he's not going to take any less than Kuzy, and I could see him getting 8 million/ 8.

And finally, Johansson traded from the Caps to the Devs. For a second and a third. Idk how Ryan Reaves got a bigger haul than Johansson. But I think this is a terrible move by the Caps. You could have bought out Orpik, traded Niskanen, traded Eller, etc, etc. Johansson was a productive, cheap player, who just had 58 points. Steal for the Devs, Johansson will look great alongside Hall/ Hischier/ Palmieri/ Zacha/ McLeod. Hey. The Devils actually have a nice YOUNG group going into next year. Cool.

03 Jul 2017 08:39:07
how can you love the price deal?

it's crazy.
always injured.

03 Jul 2017 08:41:54
Agree that the devils did a good job bolstering their offense over the last 2 years, but the defense still looks quite bad.

03 Jul 2017 16:51:01
Agree with TB3 he'll be 38 when his contract ends and it screams Loulongo to me. Carey is currently a top 3 goalie in the NHL but he is very injury prone. He could very quickly start to Decline.

01 Jul 2017 10:41:18
Kinda had this idea in mind for my Red Wings looking to get Younger while clearing some cap space:

Detroit Trades:
One of Frans Nielson/ Henrik Zetterberg (Assuming they want a cup and willing to move on to get one)
One of Gustav Nyquist or Tomas Tatar (Nashville's choice)
Petr Mrazek

Nashville Trades:
Kevin Fiala
Dante Fabbro
1st 2018
Conditional 2019 2nd that becomes 1st if Nashville reaches cup final once in next two years.
Cap dump

Why for Detroit: Detroit clears cap space and gets young pieces for the rebuild that needs to happen.

Why for Nashville:
Nashville loads up on Offense to prep for a Stanley cup run with their already fantastic Defense. Plus they get a young goalie to help learn from Rinne and eventually take over when he is done(similar to Reimer for Luongo). Nashville takes a lot of cap but sends back bad contracts or asks for salary retention.

Is this plausible in a potential deal? May not be equal? Who adds?

01 Jul 2017 14:30:53
Nashville doesn't need Mrazek because they have Saros.

01 Jul 2017 16:52:09

Yes they have Saros but Saros wasn't fully ready especially to play Playoff hockey. Mrazek only has slightly more experience. I think because Saros isn't a sure thing, having the ability to run Rinne-Mrazek and then Mrazek-Saros in the future would be great to fill the goalie void so there is no future net concerns after the Rinne era.

28 Jun 2017 18:15:10
Columbus intersted in Kovalchuck.
Nashville intersted in Duchene.

With Nashvilles D and recent success and Columbus getting Panarin and have goalie Bob and that good young D and team growing I think if those two rumors happen those two teams become cup contenders before season begins in my opinion.

28 Jun 2017 18:37:56
I saw the Nashville rumor a while back - but they aren't willing to give up any of their top 4 D for Duchene. But i agree, either of those trades would make those teams powerhouses.

28 Jun 2017 19:55:39
Im honestly not all that sold on Panarin. I think he has good skill, but his numbers were inflated a lot by his role in Chicago. i'm probably wrong and time will tell. but I jus think he's overvalued. If he gets 65 to 75 points this year, ill eat my words, but I see him more in 45 to 55 without Kane.

29 Jun 2017 00:57:48
He has an amazing 1 timer that Kane fed on the PP top 5 1timer imo he's also an gifted playmaker.

29 Jun 2017 02:06:52
I think Panarin had great chemistry with Kane but I don't think that's why he looked good. I think he's a great player. I assume he will be a 70 pt player for the foreseeable future. Maybe 80+ another time or two.

25 Jun 2017 16:16:58
NSH: Fabro, Fiala, 1st round Pick 2018
COL: Duschene

25 Jun 2017 17:42:46
Colorado wants a more established dman, but I don't think it's that bad. Probs no from Colorado tho because uts a late pick.

25 Jun 2017 19:01:07
Nashville won't be trading a dman.

25 Jun 2017 19:59:27
Nashville won't be trading a current top 4-6 D. I feel if they want Duchene they will move a prospect.

27 Jun 2017 17:31:12
I wouldn't give that for Duchene.

27 Jun 2017 17:32:34
Enticing offer. May need a bit more though. I could see Nashville pushing hard for him though.

22 Jun 2017 02:55:17
Montreal: galchenyuk

Nashville: fabbro, 2nd rounder

Could this happen?

22 Jun 2017 04:49:48
nope add like 2 first.

22 Jun 2017 07:53:35
I didn't mean it literally.

17 Jun 2017 06:38:46
Calgary had an offer on the table for James Neal, Believed to be Curtis Lazar but Nashville asking for draft pick instead

17 Jun 2017 08:48:24
Neal for Lazar. Lol. That is a joke.

14 Jun 2017 13:58:54
This trade may hurt some but it has to be done for the greater good! Once the leafs are able to acquire a true number one stud dman they become true cup contenders
Nashville can't score goals the leafs can't stop goals against
Nashville - Josi 4M x3
Leafs - gulp ! Mariner entry level
It would be so hard for the leafs to trade an up and coming superstar but it is what both teams need real bad

14 Jun 2017 14:36:35
What's the "gulp" for? Josi is one of the next defence men in the league with an amazing contract.

14 Jun 2017 15:09:10
Leafs fan but doesn't know how to spell Marner correctly. Classic. But no, good thought, but preds are going to want a ton more for Josi. But regardless he will never be traded he's way too good and valuable to that team.

14 Jun 2017 15:20:13
terrible for nashville. josi>>>marner.

14 Jun 2017 15:24:50
Lmao. Right now, Josi>>>Marner.
Let Marner finish top 5 in scoring next year then Nashville would think about it more.
This is such a fast no from them, right now.

14 Jun 2017 15:26:07
Nashville will never trade josi with a contract of 4m/ yr . this guy is one of the best contract in the league.

14 Jun 2017 16:33:19
Didnt know much about Josi, but now that I've seen him, he's worth the hype. would have a better shot getting PK.

14 Jun 2017 16:48:27
Lol. The biggest delusional homer of you any Leaf fan thinks Marner is better more valuable than Josi right now. Wow.

14 Jun 2017 17:14:21

i fully agree with you, however, if marner finished top 5 in league scoring nashville takes it, lol.

Problem is, he wont. and thatsvthe point your getting at lol.

14 Jun 2017 17:42:40
No from Nashville all though marner could "potentially" be the better player.

14 Jun 2017 17:49:32
Leafs don't need a left shooting defencemen.

14 Jun 2017 19:36:52
Marner is absolutely not going to be a better player than Josi. And the fact people are disagreeing with the fact people are saying Josi is better makes me sick. Get a clue. Josi is a top dman who never got enough recognition.

14 Jun 2017 20:24:17
I can see Leaf offer Marner + 2nd round pic to get subban and this would be awesome for both team . not sure everybody in the locker room in nashville love the way subban talk during the SCF

Subban in Toronto would be happy.

14 Jun 2017 21:25:44
That seems like a reasonable trade ON THE ASSUMPTION that Marner's year wasn't beginners luck. I'd wait a year if I was Nashville to see if it is beginner's luck or if he's a legit top 6'er.

YES we know leaf fans think he's Patrick Kane. But I say realistically. let's see how he does when the other teams put defensive emphasis on him and starts hitting him like the Ducks do to little J.

14 Jun 2017 21:26:53
Leafs add Reilly and a 1st or 3.

14 Jun 2017 21:27:50
Leafs need to be patient. They're in a re build, they're better off trying to move up in the draft and try to get Lind leidgren or however you spell it, someone to grow with the young team.

No point in trading for a top left handed defence man (especially when they need a rhd ) if they're not going to be contenders in the near future. And you leafs fans who think they could be next year with S top defence man are crazy. Josi is awesome but he's not going to put them over the top to win next year. PATIENCE leafs fans, they're on the right track just keep building!

15 Jun 2017 02:26:14
McJesus I think you're underselling Marner he's not that bad. Kucherov potential.

13 Jun 2017 06:04:26
After expansion draft trade

Nsh PK(20% retained)

Keep in mind, JVR to teams like Ana and Min for dman defeats the purpose, get something instead of losing for nothing in exp draft. In other words if JVR is going the other way, he still has to be protected.

13 Jun 2017 06:47:20
I think this is one of the most stupid and retarded trades ever. Ok is worth waaaaaaaay more than JVR.

13 Jun 2017 07:06:13
Add like 3 first rounds to JVR.

13 Jun 2017 07:16:18
Even more add 3 first and b prospect and maybe and 20% of Salary I can't say enough how this is a horrible trade and leafs will never never ever ever get subban for JVR just dream on bud and btw I am a habs fan but I live in Toronto and Toronto is my second fav team and this would never happen.

13 Jun 2017 07:19:20
BTW sorry Jpaps ik I'm might of sounded really rude dude but just got to say that I can see you are a huge Toronto fan but with very little hockey knowledge or u just overvalue your players wayyy too much just like ft4all.

13 Jun 2017 10:48:43
I'm official done with this website. Kane for Jordie Benn.

13 Jun 2017 17:21:09
Top RD retained as well for JVR? C'mon, you sound like a blue and orange fan with tunnel vision.

14 Jun 2017 02:38:37
Just awful. Can't be serious.

14 Jun 2017 21:24:45
LOL ya right. nice try Leafs fan.

Now way Jose.

12 Jun 2017 07:15:30
This is no rumour. Nor is it a trade suggestion. I simply notice during the SC finals that the Nashville Predators' centres were primarily right-handed shots. The Calgary Flames' centres are all primarily left-handed shots. A swap of centres might be in order.

Calle Jarnkrok
Colton Sissons

Sam Bennett
Mark Jankowski

Which player would be best for the other club? (I'm not worried about fairness; that's something GMs can evaluate)

12 Jun 2017 08:13:22
Addendum: I'm NOT suggesting both clubs swap both players for the other two. Neither club is going to part with their top-line centres. But, if one could get one of the centres listed, which centre would be sacrificed.

12 Jun 2017 12:29:32
I think Calgary has to say no to this. The Flames centers here have more potential upside imo. I like Jarnkrok and Sissons, but I think Bennett could really take a big step forward this year.

12 Jun 2017 12:47:16
No from Calargry.

12 Jun 2017 14:18:06
I also read that MAF will go to Vegas. Then traded to Calgary, Bennet being mentioned going to Vegas.

12 Jun 2017 14:24:29
Do people read? He said it's NOT a proposal. He is asking which players the teams should go for. Bennett would look good on Nashville. They do have defense if that's a need for Calgary.

03 Jun 2017 16:32:58
Leafs trade and free agent idea:

Trade # 1
Toronto trades:
Jeremy Brocco, Connor Brown and 2nd in 2018

Philadelphia trades:
Brayden Schenn

Trade #2
Toronto trades:
Jvr and 17th overall

Hamonic, Pulock and 15th overall

Trade #3
Toronto trades:

2nd in 2018

Trade #4
Toronto trade:
Nashville 2nd in 2018

Washington trades:
Tom Wilson

Free agent option
Alzner, E. Gudbranson, Boyle and

03 Jun 2017 18:03:08
So Hamonic AND Pulock for JVR and TOR also gets the better pick? Jesus Christ.

03 Jun 2017 18:58:33
Erik Gudbranson is an RFA. So you'd that's a first and third round pick.

03 Jun 2017 20:06:02
Started out ok. I thought the Philly one was a maybe. Then got worse for there for teams not names Toronto.

03 Jun 2017 20:19:48
are you guys mad?
philly one is a no from leafs. bracco is going to make the nhl, brown got 20 goals. if brown gets traded its for a dman.

JVR one, take out Pulock and its good. either way, pulock is lost in expansion draft.

bozak one is an EASY no from leafs. 50 points for a 2nd? heck no.

wilson one is an easy no from caps. wilson provides more enrgy to their team than the worth of a 2nd.

03 Jun 2017 22:35:23
Why would the Flyers trade Schenn, and get 2 poor replacements for him? Don't care about the pick, Schenn plays multiple positions and is a good pp player.

04 Jun 2017 20:21:47
Connor brown is a good player not worth schenn I don't think bracco plays long in the NHL so no derail to be has.

01 Jun 2017 18:40:52
Nashville: fabbro, 1st
Colorado: Duchene

01 Jun 2017 21:41:10
Needs more Ellis.

02 Jun 2017 21:23:23
Better Add Josi an arvedson.

03 Jun 2017 15:03:00
I think that's a fair offer for duchene. Then again, I don't rate him nearly as high as others on this site.

24 May 2017 20:47:14
Tor: Bozak

Nsh: 1st 2017

Nashville needs a center and this gives the leafs an opportunity to move Nylander to Center.

24 May 2017 20:56:56
First round? Even a late first. Can't see it happening. I think Nashville would try and get somebody else if that's the asking price for bozak.

24 May 2017 20:57:36
I'm sure people will say he's not good enough for a 1st and that's their opinion, but he's good in all situations, pretty good faceoffs numbers and has a year left at 4.2 mill. Because that pick is now guaranteed to be 29th or 30th in a weaker first round than the past, I'd say it's a good price both ways.

24 May 2017 21:01:06
@MJC, so Bozak isn't even worth a first, but Eberle is worth more than a first. Yet bozak has more points, and is a great faceoff guy.

Come on. With the season Bozie had, he's bound to get a first. Maybe not from Nashvill since (IMO) they don't need a change, but some team will be willing, otherwise i'd rather keep Bozak.

24 May 2017 21:08:12
Agree with top shelf that bozak can offer a lot more complete package than Eberle can. Eberle at his best is obviously more offensive but bozak could fit in any teams top 9. David Poile is the same GM that traded a 1st for Paul Gaustad knowing he was nothing more than a real good 4th centre.

Yah I'd say him and Eberle are atleast equal in value because if contracts and his 2way play.

24 May 2017 21:42:20
Also top shelf I'm curious why you don't think they'd be a good fit teams can always improve and I'd say imo he's more suited for the 2nd line C role then fisher.

24 May 2017 22:17:24
Theres always been criticism about Bozaks value, his value has always been slammed because he's a leaf, but let's be real about the type of player he is. He is consistently in the 40-50 points mark, great on face-offs and not much else. Considering the haul that some players have fetched (Vermette and Gaustad come to mind), I don't see how its out of the realm of possibility for Bozak to net a very late 1st round pick in an underwhelming draft year. Lou and Co. have done a great job maximizing value out of their assets and I would be surprised if we don't get either a 1st or 2nd and a prospect for him.

24 May 2017 23:25:28
Poor deal for the Leafs. Thumbs down.

#29 or 30 pick in a weak draft for a solid center?
Bozak can net a lot more than that.

25 May 2017 00:46:30
Topshelf when the heck did I ever say anything about Eberle? What's your deal seriously. You are actually smart on here for the most part and now you're trying to start stuff with me about stuff I never said.

25 May 2017 01:38:23

Ryan Johansen, Craig Smith, Calle Jarnkrok, Mike Fisher as centremen. Plus Austin Watson and Colton Sissons. NASHville is very deep in centre, as they are in every position. that's why I think Nashville may prefer to upgrade on wing than centre.

25 May 2017 03:09:14
Yeah I'd say that would be a loss for the Leafs. But I guess they do get over 10 years younger.

25 May 2017 05:08:04
Hes a 3rd line bum that had a half decent year benefitting from the rookies un sustainable first years.

25 May 2017 07:04:35
Bozak puts up decent numbers every year playing in over his head against teams top line. He's not a #1 C by any means but he wins face offs and kills penalties as well. He also plays with only one of the rookies you speak of Lindss. After reading your uneducated comment, you probably think JVR is a rookie too.

25 May 2017 11:32:07
@MJC. Sorry, didn't mean to come off as an a**hole, although I may have come off as one. Either way, sorry. But what I'm saying is, hey, if you say that Eberle can equal Eakin + 1st, Bozak should be able to garner at least a first. And the only reason I use Eberle, is because he is someone who is on the trading block, and everyone is pretty familiar with his trade value.

And no, I don't disagree that Eberle won't get a return such as Eakin/ 1st (one good piece [1st] and okay piece [Eakin]), I just disagree that you think that Bozie won't even garner a first after putting up a 55 point season, and having 4 points in 6 playoff games. Naturally, if you were offered a late 1st for Ebs with 50% retained, you'd obviously say no, right? that's how a leaf fan may feel about Bozak for a late first. He played well last season, and his value went up.

Again, I don't mean to be rude to you at all, I just may have come off harsh cause I am very passionate for my team. Cheers bud 👍.

Leafs get worse by losing bozak for a very late first, but at the same time, at 30-31 years old, 1 year left on his contract and a glut of NHL ready forwards already playing on the leafs and coming from the Marlies, his days in TO are numbered. If it's the best they can get in a market where middle six centres aren't being hunted down too hard, they could take it and be satisfied. Having that late first could be another asset to package for the Dman they need. When they traded kessel and got a 30th pick and pens 3rd best prospect it looked a little weak. However that's now become Freddy Andersen and Kapanen. Assets are always good when you have a front office that can manage them properly.

25 May 2017 15:35:41
Fair enough but imo Bozak would be a short term upgrade on them all besides Johannson and I thought Smith was a winger.

20 May 2017 18:34:23
Just read that three separate sources saying there's a chance Subban is traded from Nashville before the expansion draft.
And that he has said he would like to play for the Leafs closer to family and home. JVR would be a main piece involved.
Babcock and Lou were at the two recent games in Nashville too.
Don't hate the messenger. Just something I read. Lol.
Reily subban
Gardiner zietsev
Mathews. Marner. Nylander.
Would Leaf fans love that or what?

20 May 2017 18:41:21
Where did you hear that?

20 May 2017 18:45:02
jesus yup, what are you trying to do here.

Please don't mess with us leaf fans.

20 May 2017 18:47:11
Yeah like still can't see that happening ever. Subban traded in general.

20 May 2017 19:31:18
Please NO! . Subban being gone is hard enough to take. really would rub salt in a wound if he was a Leaf. 😭😭.

20 May 2017 19:39:00
"On friday, three different sources (unlinked and independent from each other) reported a crazy trade rumor regarding PK. Heres the sloppy intellectual gymnastic that led to this crazy rumor:
-It all started with Martin Leclerc from radio-Canada stating PK could be traded bt the expansion draft. The argument behind this dilemma with protecting D man as they have 4 great blue liners, PK. josh, Ekholm, Ellis.

-On friday, Ian Halperin ( a Canadian investigative journalist, writer and documentary filmmaker) added on 98.1FM that some of his sources claim PK would like to play for the Leafs and get closer to his family. KVR might be an intriguing option for the Preds, who have long needed to add offensive punchh.

-News reported by Luke Fox (from Quick Shits) stated that the Leafs and Preds were "possible" trade partners. All comes from the fact Lou Lamoniello and Babcock were spotted at games 3 and 4 in Nashville vs the Ducks. (pic added)

Just a fun rumor take it as you are


20 May 2017 20:19:51
So Mathews to nashville?

20 May 2017 20:47:25
Kadri, JVR and the 2017 1st round pick? Could that get it done?

20 May 2017 20:53:25
So; three nobodies trying to make a name for themselves as reporters made this up.

20 May 2017 20:57:05
Lol Nashville would be asking for Matthews/ Marner.

20 May 2017 21:18:49
Lol. matthews. Good one. Marner or Nylander yes but not Matthews.

20 May 2017 22:52:58
The starting point would not be JVR there is no deal to be made leafs will not trade the big 3 which is a deal breaker for Nashville.

20 May 2017 23:56:36
Leafs will trade the big 3 if they get Subban. Easy decision.

None of them are generational talents, chillax.

21 May 2017 00:31:20
Lol. This would have been so good if I made this up.
Getting the Leafs fans going is fun tho. Wish I had enough time to make this up for ya all. Haha.
Maybe a story more just for coincidence than anything else?

21 May 2017 00:38:22
In all honesty, I could see Ekholm move. Not Ellis/ Subban/ Josi.

That way the Preds can get around their four dmen problem.
Maybe trade Ekholm for an inelegible player, who is ready to step in and play now, but is still inelegible to be selected by Vegas. Maybe? But nah, Subban ain't going anywhere. If he is, then wow.

But I'd say that Ekholm is expandable, partially due to the fact that the Preds have Dante Fabbro coming up, he'd be a decent top four in the future.

21 May 2017 01:13:06
For the record.
I don't think Nashville will trade Souppan. 😜.

21 May 2017 01:14:01
"Yup" is fake news.

21 May 2017 09:45:07
Tb2 and subban is?
