22 Oct 2017 06:05:14
Mtl) Chucky
Njd) Jake bean + Julien Gauthier

Mtl already refused am offer from Njd (Chucky for Henrique and + package)
But this is maybe what the team needs

22 Oct 2017 10:55:58
henrique > chucky
so if montreal declined a henrique ++ package then bergivin is an idiot.

22 Oct 2017 12:39:41
Bean plays for carolina dude

22 Oct 2017 14:42:15
Julien Gauthier also plays for Carolina as well dude. So you made a mistake and meant Carolina. But Bean and Gauthier would actually be pieces that I would like to have in the long run. Especially Gauthier. I wanted mtl to draft him.

22 Oct 2017 16:17:51
Ya sprry A defenetly meant Carolina.

22 Oct 2017 18:20:07
Its Carolina bro

Mtl might need to add 2019 1st to get that trade done cus Carolina is giving up two big potentials.

22 Oct 2017 20:18:50
new jersey: hey carolina, we're going to trade 2 of your prospects to get galchenyuk for our team
carolina: okay? so what do we get out of this deal?
new jersey: nothing
carolina: lol that's fine.

22 Oct 2017 21:25:50
PKane88 Chucky has way more upside, that’s why the hand would decline.

17 Sep 2017 09:24:18
I guess everyone on here must be top NHL GMs. Well i'm not but here's a quick proposal.

New Jersey trades

John Quenville and a 2nd Rd pick

Columbus trades

Josh Anderson

Line up



17 Sep 2017 11:05:09
They don't need to trade a good prospect and pick for anderson. They already have a good top six.

Hall - Henrique - Palmieri
Johansson - Hischier - Zacha

And Zajac can slot in there too when he's back.

17 Sep 2017 21:55:06
Also, Columbus says no.

18 Sep 2017 01:41:08
New jerseys second round pick alone could be an overpayment for anderson.

18 Sep 2017 01:43:43
No disrespect to Anderson, he had a great season. but that 2nd round pick could be decent enough in a few years.

17 Sep 2017 03:33:04
Minor Deal Thought:

Mark Fayne and Jujhar Khaira to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a conditional 6th Round Pick

Mark Fayne plays in 50+ games with NJ - pick becomes a 2018 6th Round Pick
Mark Fayne plays in fewer than 50 games with NJ - no pick transacted.

- New Jersey is so depleted on the backend that they could use someone like Mark Fayne as a 5/ 6 guy, despite his hefty contract and limited skillset.
- They also acquire Khaira, who could provide depth to a relatively top-heavy offensive core in NJ.
- Edmonton adds valuable cap space at a minimal cost (giving up Khaira) : cap space that could be used at the deadline to beef up the team for a playoff run.
- Khaira is easily replaceable in the system, and at best, will become a third liner for the Devils.

17 Sep 2017 04:41:36
Can't see Devils doing it.

17 Sep 2017 04:52:13
No way from Edm. Keeping Jujhar
He will play a lot this session. Then full time nex season when Letestu is maybe gone.

17 Sep 2017 21:56:57
Fayne is buried in the minors. They don't need to trade Jujhar away for just a conditional 6th to get rid of Faynes contract. This is terrible the more I think about it. They value Jujhar a lot more than this believe it or not.

18 Sep 2017 11:22:08
Lol come on yup. Jujhar is the equvelant of like Josh Leivo, if i could send Leivo and Lupul put for a 6th, i'd do it. Not everyone has as much value as you think.

12 Sep 2017 07:05:09
Ottawa trades Dion Phaneuf and a 2nd to new jersey in exchange for dalton prout and Nathan bastian. I know Phaneuf has a modified trade clause, but let's just say new jersey is a team on his list.

12 Sep 2017 15:27:30
But why would Jersey be a team on his list? i'd think he'd be more leaning towards a true contender. if he was traded.

12 Sep 2017 18:28:51
This is dumb because NJ wouldn't be on his list. So no point in even talking about it.
He already blocked a trade at deadline. And wouldn't waive for Vegas. So Why would he now accept, And to NJ.

11 Sep 2017 23:03:43
Just throwing one out there that may help the devils... Probably a pipe dream but here is.

New Jersey trades

Kinkaid, Greene, 1st rd pick

Ottawa trades


Then with everyone signed in Jersey.
Jersey offers Pastrank 9mill at 7yrs

How does that sound
Please reply good or bad

11 Sep 2017 23:49:31
Lol no.

12 Sep 2017 00:31:57
Lololol what the best defender in the game for that garbage, and old top 4 dman, a back up goalie and a 1t round pick for the best defender in the Nhl.

12 Sep 2017 01:14:00
Bad! Very very bad lol.

12 Sep 2017 01:21:11
I hope you're not talking about Eric Karlson! If you want Eric Carlson you'd better start with Hischier and 2018 unprotected 1st and go from there. In other words. no one is getting Karlson unless they grossly over pay.

12 Sep 2017 02:08:24
You are not seriously wondering if people are going to say good or bad, are you? I'll save you the suspense. It's really bad lol top 3 defensman in the world on anyone's list, #1 on most ppls. For a back up goalie, a 4-6 dman and a pick? Lol start with nico hiescher, next years 1st and severson with his new 4 mill cap hit to take some of Karlssons minutes. That will make Ottawa not hang up. Then start thinking what you're going to add to it.

12 Sep 2017 03:05:10
This is a joke. I'm hoping you're not serious because that isn't even close to getting conversations for EK started. You'd be giving Hischier/ Zacha, Severson+++
Hammond, Logan Brown and a 1st for Hischier?

12 Sep 2017 05:07:53

12 Sep 2017 05:44:06
BurnerBob. i'm going to have to ask you to never post again please.

12 Sep 2017 14:01:00
William karlsson plays for the Jackets and that's an overpayment for him by Ottawa.

12 Aug 2017 12:48:05
Alexei Marchenko D

3rd 2019

Golden Knights:
Ben Smith RW
Frederik Gauthier C
3rd 2019

Colin Miller D
4th 2018

James van Riemsdyk LW

Aleksi Heponiemi C
Henrik Borgstrom C

12 Aug 2017 15:51:10
who the @#$% are the players coming back to toronto in the JVR deal.

12 Aug 2017 17:51:15
Borgstrom was a 1st round pick from the panthers in 2016. Currently in the NCAA. A big (lanky) talented center.

12 Aug 2017 21:53:43
No from Devils, no from Vegas and no from Toronto, even tho I personally really like Heponeimi and Borgstrom has come along nicely since being drafted.

13 Aug 2017 06:53:54
I'd literally take future considerations to get rid of Ben smith and his useless contract.

13 Aug 2017 17:23:54
I'm sure google could tell you all about them.

27 Jul 2017 19:00:44
I know 3-team trades don't happen often but I thought I'd give it a try.

Leafs trade- Bozak, leivo, 1st (lottery protected) and 3rd
Oilers trade- RNH
Devils trade- Severson

Leafs get severson
Oilers get Bozak,
Devils get RNH, Leivo, 3rd

Leafs get a prime age RHD

Oilers get Bozak to replace RNH. He makes 4.2 instead of rnh's 6 mill and his contract expires the day mcdavids deal kicks in. They can try to resign him to a deal that works for both, They can allow him to walk after a playoff run or trade him for assets at the deadline. Also get the first.

Devils get a good centreman that can play anywhere in your top 9. Can play in all situations and with skilled players. They also get josh leivo who has shown flashes of being an nhl caliber sniper with very limited opportunity. And a 3rd round pick

Biggest problem I see is Devils depth on D doesn't really allow them to trade one for a C.

27 Jul 2017 19:55:29
So Tor traded a first and it magically disappeared?

27 Jul 2017 20:45:26
Sorry. Oilers got the first. It says it in the explaination. Forgot it on the breakdown.

27 Jul 2017 20:53:59
How is that worth it for the leafs

Also i think the 1st was supposed to go to the oilers lol.

27 Jul 2017 21:08:43
If they just trade RNH for Bozak oh my gaawd.

27 Jul 2017 22:27:26
Lol. No.

28 Jul 2017 00:53:47
It's Bozak and a first.

28 Jul 2017 02:50:19
Devs lose big time. Their forwards are set, they need defemss now. Severson is their only saving grace.

28 Jul 2017 20:07:35
Oilers and Devils are trading good quality but leafs are just trading quantity. Typical lol.

28 Jul 2017 20:13:14
Good reasoning for your trades. Toronto seems to come out on the short end but is it for some salary relief?

29 Jul 2017 17:17:18
Hotguybabes. Leafs are getting one good, not great, defenseman and trading a good, not great, NHL centerman, a kid with upside, 1st round pick and a 3rd round pick. You make it sound like I have them getting doughty for 5 Marlies that will never play in the NHL.

01 Aug 2017 13:17:09
No way T. O does this
IF Bozak asks for a raise it will still be less than RNH contract.
He is the Leafs best faceoff man and gets more points than RNH
RNH is overpaid and overrated and not worth Leivo and a 1st.

07 Jul 2017 02:36:23
J. Leivo LW
B. Smith RW

D. Severson D
5th 2019

A. Marchenko D
E. Fehr RW

07 Jul 2017 04:35:29
Solid no for all trades.

07 Jul 2017 05:12:19
Those are all terrible for anyone not named Toronto.

07 Jul 2017 06:50:16
Like what lol wow.

07 Jul 2017 08:27:41
easy no from Devils. since they need good d themselves.

07 Jul 2017 14:58:13
Wow I think you'd cry if you could comprehend how much the leafs add.

04 Jul 2017 12:22:39
Devils do the sign and trade with Kovy:

RW Ilya Kovalchuk
2019 2nd Round Pick

Blue Jackets:
C Oliver Bjorkstrand
D Ryan Murray

I don't think Columbus views either of those guys as anything more than secondary help but Kovy could be a 60-point player in the right environment. Devils get more pieces to the puzzle

04 Jul 2017 15:36:42
To much take out the 2nd from NJ and Murray sand add a 2nd from Columbus.

04 Jul 2017 21:05:37
No way we give up that much for Kovalchuk. Kovy for Murray straight up if it happens. Appears he's staying in the KHL though.

04 Jul 2017 21:23:30
Kovalchuck is going to stay in the KHL for one more year.

04 Jul 2017 22:23:11
What's wrong with

NJ: Oliver Bjorkstrand and a 2019 2nd

Clb: Kovy


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.

23 Jun 2017 18:20:40
Apparently Devils really want galchenyuk and there is a MTL source that said that Galchenyuk is in play for the 1st Overall pick and that there will be a trade something in the like of.....

Montreal trade: Galchenyuk,2017 1st(#26),2017 2nd, De la rose

Devils trade 1st overall

23 Jun 2017 19:08:56
Sounds like a lot for MTL but would help with their cap problem and signing price.

23 Jun 2017 19:12:30
As much as i think that would help and be nice, Habs won't get the 1st overall.

23 Jun 2017 21:35:39
That's a firm no from NJ it would take a huge over payment like- Top Prospect/ Young top 6 Forward, U23 top 4 Dman and 1st

Example- Kyle Connor, Jacob Trouba, Connor Hellybuck and 24th ovr

NJ- 1st overall

This is what it would take and it's not worth it 1st overall picks don't get traded.

24 Jun 2017 16:54:23
Lol VB you're such a troll. Hischier/ Patrick doesn't get half that package.

24 Jun 2017 20:09:09
IMo I don't think the value of the 1st this year is that much lower then Mathews last season.

23 Jun 2017 06:00:55
Apparently new jersey is a front runner for galchenyuk so heres what i think makes sense

Mtl galchenyuk lindgren, 25th ovr pick

Njd: henrique, 1st ovr pick, j. moore.

23 Jun 2017 06:58:36
No way. Galchenyuk and 25th probably won't get you #1. Don't know much about lindgren, but I can guarantee John Moore and Henrique aren't going the other way for him. Devils laugh. If Devils want a good forward who may never reach his potential of being a #1 centre, they can just pick Nolan Patrick and hope he's better. Not to mention have him for dirt cheap salary wise. Not pay galchenyuk an insane amount above what he's worth because after trading the top pick for an RFA, he holds all the leverage. This is habs dreaming. If Devils were willing to part with those three pieces in one deal, 20 teams would blow this offer out of the water.

23 Jun 2017 06:59:02
That's way too much from Devils even coming from habs fan. Easy no from Devils.

22 Jun 2017 16:20:48
VGK: Methot, 15th Overall Pick 2017
DAL: 3rd Overall Pick 2017


VGK: 3rd Overall Pick 2017, Van Riemsdyk
NJ: 1st Overall Pick 2017

Vegas would have 1st, 6th and 13th Overall Picks and can draft Nolan Patrick.

Dallas gets a top 4 Left Defenceman for their win now mode. Also retaining a first round pick and just moving back spots.

New Jersey gets Van Reimsdyk, a Defenceman that they can use this season. Also they can draft Heiskanen or Makar 3rd Overall

22 Jun 2017 16:52:27
Or Jersey can also move down, acquire another asset and draft Liljegran. Regardless I like the trade.

22 Jun 2017 17:28:19
Devils definitely don't need Tvr and he also just got traded to Carolina.

22 Jun 2017 18:04:12
Wow that'd be the end of Ray Sheros career.

20 Jun 2017 08:09:10
By the looks of it I think Vegas might have a crew of Dadanov, Shipachyov. Imagine if they signed Radulov and trade for Kovalchuk.

Trade #1
• 2017 1st round pick (not Vegas' 5th pick)

New Jersey:
• rights to Ilya Kovalchuk
• Expansion selection of their choice

Would be cool to get ovi but anyways

Kovalchuk - Shipachyov - Radulov
Dadonov - Marchassault - Neal
Ryan - Sheahan - Gaborik
Paajarvi - Grigorenko - Ward

Enstrom - Dumba
Emelin - Vatanen
Johnson - Sbisa


20 Jun 2017 13:15:51
This team would be way over salary, even without Kovy.

20 Jun 2017 17:25:39
Radulovs signing in Montreal.

20 Jun 2017 18:12:01
Not sure if Montreal can afford him at what he is asking. Heard he priced himself out of the team.

20 Jun 2017 18:48:34
Been hearing lots of different things about the Radulov situation. Think it will be a big step backwards by Habs if they let him go.
Although I like the Drouin trade, kinda worried about this team for next season if Radulov is gone, the Galchenyuk situation, the slow aging D, and the most important issue, Prices upcoming contract.
Can't see Vegas doing the Habs the ultimate favor of taking Plekanec . but that would deffinetly be a good start to help with some of these issues.

20 Jun 2017 18:51:17
Without Kovy and Dadonov, the contracts equal approximately $68-$70 million dollars. Now, this would be under the cap - technically. Except that is the total of 17 roster spots, not to mention the other 30-33 contract spaces they would likely fill out (including 6 players on the active roster to make it to 23 before season starts) .

No way Vegas spends to the cap in their first year, that would just be poor management.

20 Jun 2017 21:12:18
Just saw that Jersey would get an expansion pick of their choice. so you would have to loose probably Dumba, Enstrom or Marchassault.
Not to mention i would be very surprised if they took Emelin from the habs without a payoff.

18 Jun 2017 23:09:08
make deal with vegas to take scandella

LV: scandella

MTL: 1st

EDM: Hopkins

MTL: Gallagher, De la rose, 3rd

Gives MTL a solid center and allows edmonton to put draisatl in the middle and have a RW to replace him. Also gives them a young player that can be a defensive bottom 6 center

MTL: Emelin

NJ: 4th round pick

Could be another team but NJ needs defense

Sign: Radulov 4-5 years at 6.5
Galchenyuk 6 years 5.5
Markov. 2 years 4.5

Pacioretty. Hopkins. Radulov
Galchenyuk. Danault. Drouin.
Hudon. Plekanec. Shaw.
Byron. Mitchell. Mccarron

Scandella. Weber.
Markov. Petry.
Jerabek. Benn.


19 Jun 2017 05:29:32
I like it but want to keep Gallagher rather get rid of shaw and get rid of plekanec.

19 Jun 2017 14:00:07
Woops i forgot lehkonen! Should be on third instead of hudon. Or if plekanec is gone then shaw centering hudon and lehknone.

18 Jun 2017 05:15:57
To Montreal

A. Greene + 2018 3rd

To New Jersey

A. Galchenyuk

18 Jun 2017 05:40:48
Obviously a Devils fan.

18 Jun 2017 06:29:54
Not even close. This is ridiculous.

18 Jun 2017 07:56:17
Add like 3 first rounds because Andy green has a horrible contract this guys is a joke.

18 Jun 2017 13:40:29
Nolan Patrick>the habs roster besides 2 players

Your a joke.

18 Jun 2017 14:45:33
The habs are getting fleeced big time in this one. Horrible trade.

18 Jun 2017 19:12:00
I didn't mean it literally I just meant that they need to add way more and that green has a horrible contract.

16 Jun 2017 21:08:43
NJD- Zajac

OTT- Phaneuf.

16 Jun 2017 21:32:05
Cammalleri makes more sense. Zajac is a long term Devil they should not trade him just because they're getting Nolan or Nico.

16 Jun 2017 12:58:34
New Jersey: Mike Cammalleri

Ottawa: Dion Phaneuf

Ottawa: opens up a protection spot to keep Methot and Helps cap wise. Cam can provide good secondary scoring.

New Jersey: gets a good but expensive number 3 dman they desperately need. He would be there best dman right now.

16 Jun 2017 13:09:45
Cant see Dion waiving for Jersey. and he's a lot more valuable than Cammalleri.

16 Jun 2017 15:15:20
Agree w sosa.

16 Jun 2017 15:28:02
Dion submitted a 12 team list he would accept a trade to at the start of the year, and then again yesterday. Doubt NJ is on his 12 team allow list.

14 Jun 2017 18:42:13
LV: 6th Overall Pick 2017, Best Defenceman from Expansion Draft
NJ: 1st Overall Pick 2017

14 Jun 2017 19:34:45
Depending on the best dman they get, that could catch NJ eye. But I can't see it.

14 Jun 2017 21:28:58
That would have to be quite a def.

14 Jun 2017 21:35:25
Could be Jack Johnson.

14 Jun 2017 22:51:52
IF it's a Nashville or Anaheim or Minnesota defenseman (ekholm or Vatanen or Brodin), you do it. Basically a top-2 defenseman and another center for Nolan Patrick. I take that as a Devils fan.

14 Jun 2017 23:12:48
I could see that defenseman being one of the Minnesota D-mem if that's who they get to pick from. Although I still think New Jersey would prefer to keep the pick and get Patrick or Hirschier. One of those players might be a better option for New Jersey's future.

However, I think they will still consider and look into options.

@Toasty CBJ I don't think Jack Johnson is enough to make that jump. Maybe Jack Johnson when he was younger but he doesn't have that much value now to bridge that gap.

15 Jun 2017 00:39:48
Trouba or Meyers.

13 Jun 2017 16:36:02
OTT: Ceci,

NJD: Kovalchuk, Wedgewood, '17 5th

13 Jun 2017 19:29:57
kovies better than ceci, what.

13 Jun 2017 19:37:47
Age difference is the only reason why I could see Ottawa asking for more.

16 Jun 2017 17:33:35
Kovaluck is 1 dimensional and been away from nhl for some time now and mid don't want him and he don't want to be there. For that reason it would work but after anthem situation why would any Canadian team want him?
