To Blues

To Edm

Blues are strong right side but need a solid lefty. I heard Edmonton is in a cap crunch so might want to move out salary. They can replace Klef with players from within. This is the best trade ever suggested. Ever. Take that redwing1.

Agree1 Disagree16

21 Mar 2020 19:47:39
They’re in a cap crunch so they trade away their top Dman who logs up around the most minutes per game in the NHL while making a meagre $4.16mil/ yr? That doesn’t make a whole lotta sense now does it?

21 Mar 2020 22:13:36
It does when they got cheaper replacements in house for him. He's a good defenseman but he ain't great. He's worth a couple good prospects though.

24 Mar 2020 17:51:23
No basis in reality at all.

24 Mar 2020 19:52:40
Kinda like your responses.

25 Mar 2020 14:08:50
Wow, got a new troll I see.

25 Mar 2020 23:05:25
This site is full of them.

31 Mar 2020 21:22:19
Ahah, the trolls acknowledges he’s got completion lmao.

18 Mar 2020 22:42:06
I'm curious to know... If this Crisis lasts for a long time, would the NHL cancel this season, and just wait for the next?? Or.. totally change up the calendar for a year?? And if so play playoffs in Summer , or even Fall if need be?? And then possibly a 40 to 50 game regulars season for the 20/21 season??
Also.. if this season is scrapped?? Would end of season individual awards be given??

Anyway. , hope all of you and your families stay safe and healthy during this weird time..

Agree3 Disagree2

18 Mar 2020 23:47:16
I think scrapping this season will be the very last resort. I think they'll find someway to get the playoffs in even if they are sharply shortened.

19 Mar 2020 08:57:28
Next season will be shortened before this one is cancelled imo.

19 Mar 2020 13:45:17
Players want to shorten both seasons. Start next year in November. It's all over the news.

19 Mar 2020 14:51:22
Apparently Bill Daley said shortening next season isn’t going to happen. I think have 5 game series until the last round is a good idea. I know it’ll barely help but it’s a start. These guys will definitely need a few regular season games to get back into as well. Might just have to scrap the season 😬.

19 Mar 2020 15:01:57
I think they are going to go with a 1 game format for the playoffs. So instead of 4 games win if you win that 1 game your going to the next round. They probably going to go with how the standings are right now so that sucks for the teams that were clost enough to maybe catch up but it is what it is.

19 Mar 2020 15:57:25
I can't see a 1 game format for this. 5 games seems realistic. And I agree with Ebs . They are going to need a few games to get ready. Also read about some 24 team format. Now for those 8 who would be lucky to get in, that I could possibly see a 1 and done. or mini 3 game series. who knows. Other issues are going to be getting the venues. the air travel, the lodging. this stuff takes a lot of time to plan. so it will be interesting

However, until all the other issues in the world are solved, I guess we just won't know. unfortunately this could last for a long time.

20 Mar 2020 16:53:34
If the league isn't back practicing as teams buy July 1st I think it will be " No Stanley Cup awarded due to Coronavirus"

21 Mar 2020 09:10:19
Let’s just wait and see and everyone concern themselves with staying healthy and safe instead.

21 Mar 2020 15:30:47
I agree Chirp, it's just nice however to take our minds off this crisis, even for a few minutes .

But ya, in the big picture. hockey really doesn't matter at the moment.

18 Mar 2020 15:34:07

2020 3rd

Agree3 Disagree6

20 Mar 2020 17:53:09
Not a lot of tanpa or col fans I guess.

Why does Tampa do this? They are contenders now and killorb is great.

21 Mar 2020 03:40:34
Cap reasons.

21 Mar 2020 15:32:54
Tampa lost foote and two first because of this virus shutdown. They got screwed the worst of all the teams. Did any other team lose anywhere near that much?

23 Mar 2020 01:55:55
Well Coleman and Goodrow aren’t UFA so they didn’t really lose. Arizona lost the most as Hall brought them nothing.

28 Mar 2020 02:54:13
They brought them in for the playoffs. If there is no playoffs they get screwed now don't they. They could have kept those picks for this year and traded next years picks for next year's playoffs. Oh yeah. And they lost foote. So yeah. They got screwed.

18 Mar 2020 13:40:09
To Stlouis

To nj

Gives Blues two young quality left side defenders. Faulk and parayko are right side next year.

Agree1 Disagree7

18 Mar 2020 16:36:31
I’d rather have Kyrou than Butcher.

19 Mar 2020 11:36:09
Blues have a few players coming up. Mikola and perunovich. Blues only quality forwards are kyrou and kostin. They will not be trading those players for that.

19 Mar 2020 13:46:02
How do you know so much about what the Blues are going to do redwing1?

19 Mar 2020 13:47:43
All your stupid comments makes me think your the blues homer I was warned about.

21 Mar 2020 15:32:19
You 2 Blues fans are going to give the Jets fans on here a run for there money! Lol.

17 Mar 2020 20:24:03
chicago: Saad, entwistle, krys 2nd round pick
ottawa: Jaros, reilly + 3rd.

close? ottawa has some cap space, gains a couple prospects and a pick. chicago gets rid of saad contract.

Agree1 Disagree3

18 Mar 2020 03:05:36
Honestly not bad. Saad is only 27 but going to ottawa his numbers will drop. I think it's worth it compensation wise, pretty good proposal!

18 Mar 2020 16:36:54
I could see something like this happening, not bad imo.

19 Mar 2020 13:49:29
Why would cheapskates Ottawa ever consider taking on old man saad and his contract? They don't even want to pay their own good players.

19 Mar 2020 19:36:24
st louis fan. old man saad? he's only 27, and i'm pretty sure his deal is only for another year if i remember correctly.

mike. i could see his numbers dropping in ottawa too, but then again look at guys like duclair and namestnikov who went there and their numbers were great this year.

20 Mar 2020 17:45:49
And how old is the team they are wanting to build around? Why would Ottawa want a 27 year old free agent? If you want to dump old overpaid free agents you got to pay. It cost Leafs a 1st to dump Marleau. Saad is a bit better but Ottawa still won't want him.

23 Mar 2020 04:34:58
St Louis Fan. saad is 27 and in the prime of his career. his contract is high sure but it's not like he's in his twilight years like marleau is. saad still has at least 5-6 years of good hockey left in him. a change of scenery could be all he needs.

28 Mar 2020 10:55:45
Are you a used car salesman? Because that's what you're trying to do. Sell me a used hockey player. Ottawa is only in the market for shiny new model hockey players.

30 Mar 2020 19:25:52
Confirmed @St. LouisFan is a teenage boy.

"Why would cheapskates Ottawa ever consider taking on old man saad and his contract? "

How about the fact that Ottawa is shedding $24 million in contracts off the books this summer. When the salary cap increases, rebuilders will still need to reach the cap floor somehow without necessarily taking on long term contract commitments. UFA's don't typically sign 1 year deals unless they're trying to prove they're still relevant in the NHL, something you can't really pull off in Ottawa with the current situation on that team.

How about the fact that 1 of those UFAs they're losing this summer is LW Mikkel Boedker whose 3 years older than old man Saad and if they did this trade, Ottawa would be acquiring a winger whose put up 20 more career points in 121 less games than Boedker?

A top 6 of:

Tkachuk - White - Ryan
Saad - Tierney - Duclair = looks good enough to be another season of rebuilding while staying competitive.

Thank you for trying to compare an NHL trade offer to buying a used car. Fortunately a lot of players still have thousands of miles left in the tank at 27 years old.

31 Mar 2020 18:55:21
What is the average age in the NHL? Last I checked it was just abiut 27. So while Saad might not be old in real life, he is overage for NHL. Players start going downhill at 27. Sometimes rapidly. Ottawa has no use for Saad. End of story.

31 Mar 2020 18:58:03
They don't want to stay competitive. They are trying to tank. Tanking teams try to be the worst they can. That's why they are trading all their UFA's away.

01 Apr 2020 13:27:23
I wish you would have brought some facts to the table, there's no validity to claiming that players start going downhill at 27.

In comparison, I believe the average age a defenseman takes to fully develop in their position is 26. In any case, I'd say an overwhelming majority of players in their mid to late 20s are just reaching their prime or slightly regressing, unless they've had an injury history that's catching up to them and rapidly regressing their performance.

"Ottawa has no use for Saad. End of story. " = See that's the thing, they have many uses for Saad that you're just overlooking because you haven't looked at the bigger picture. he's younger than half the free agents they're losing this summer. There are only 7 players on Ottawa that have produced more points than him so far this season (2 of them were traded at the deadline) . If he's not a player they can see working for them after 2020-21, he's another pending UFA next year that they could trade for picks/ prospects.

Ottawa has many uses for Saad. Next!

"They don't want to stay competitive. They are trying to tank. " = Again I wish you would have brought some facts. A team with an aged goaltender, poor defense and few forwards that can produce more than 30 points is not deliberately tanking, they're doing the best the can with what they've got right now (see Detroit Red Wings, my favorite team) . I can promise you there is absolutely no NHL team that is trying to be the worst the can.

Rangers Trade
2nd Round Pick 2021

Leafs Trade
Bracco (AHL)

Thoughts ?

Agree4 Disagree20

13 Mar 2020 15:21:47
No from Rangers.

14 Mar 2020 17:58:24
Do those players make the rangers lineup? Johnsson 3rd line maybe?

14 Mar 2020 18:56:36
Are you kidding Monkeyful? Bracco is a 100 point player minimum on any team in the NHL. The Leafs just can't find room for him.

(The above statement is sarcasm)

15 Mar 2020 00:37:10
No one has insinuated that Bracco will ever be elite I think he can is an NHL player and I think he is worth a mid second.

15 Mar 2020 12:14:25
Pinball is the worst.

15 Mar 2020 16:00:00
Vbbb, why would Bracco be worth a mid-second? Every team has at least 3 or 4 nothing special wingers sitting in the AHL with the same meh production. I'd say his value is slightly above nothing.

15 Mar 2020 18:31:13
He’s a 23 year old winger that has no NHL games played and is under a point per game in the AHL. How is he worth a mid second? Although it does seem kind of crazy he didn’t get any NHL games after a 79 point season.

15 Mar 2020 18:33:10
Also VB I think you said he was an elite passer or something like that?

15 Mar 2020 20:13:55
Typical garbage pinball proposal, nothing to see here folks, carry on.

15 Mar 2020 22:42:08
I did his playmaking ability is top end but his lack of size mixed with Mediocre skating holds him back. He never got opportunity in Toronto personally I’d give him to the highest bidder he deserves a chance somewhere even if he only gets a 5th I’d pull the trigger to see him get the chance but I think a team who wants to take a chance on a young winger to step in would give a 2nd.

17 Mar 2020 06:54:07
Toronto has Room for bracco, if he's worth it. If he's not good enough to play 3rd or 4th line over the other blah players, he's not worth a2nd from a lottery team.

17 Mar 2020 12:27:22
Bracco isn't with a second from ANY team.

17 Mar 2020 21:43:27
Bracco would never go 10 feet from a Conner he is full offense when the puck goes in the dzone he’ll skate to the bench.

18 Mar 2020 03:45:03
So that’s why he will never be 3rd/ 4th Line he is Alexander Semin.

19 Mar 2020 13:51:29
VB. How can he be worth a second if he can't play defense and goes straight to the bench when the puck enters their zone? That doesn't sound like a player worth a decent pick like a mid second.

11 Mar 2020 22:14:30
EJ (2M retained)

2020 4th

Agree2 Disagree20

12 Mar 2020 04:29:08
Why does Colorado do this?

12 Mar 2020 15:18:42
Colorado does not do this IMO.

12 Mar 2020 21:00:00
Retain and get absolutely nothing in return? Is Colorado Intentionally trying to get worse or what's the thinking behind this?

13 Mar 2020 05:14:45
Basically Toronto has 2 million dollars added onto their cap after this trade for next year. So the cap evens out a 4 mill on each team.

The stats of the two players are actually very similar this year.
However, because Johnson is older and likely declining, while Holl can be a stead top 6 defenceman for the next 4-5 years, I think the leafs pass. Dubas wants to keep this team young and cheap. Adding Eric Johnson to the mix just doesn't seem like something he would do.

Overall who is the better player? Probably Johnson. But who has more years left in them, Holl. I understand the trade from this point of view. I just don't see either team making it.

11 Mar 2020 13:23:54
NJ Trades:
Pavel Zacha

EDM Trades:
Jesse Puljujarvi
Matt Benning (RFA)

- Oilers acquire a cost controlled asset who's playing decently well in Jersey this year; could be an ideal 3C.

- Devils acquire a player who can ideally be a better player than Zacha - as well as Benning, who is a decent 5-6 dman.

Agree5 Disagree19

11 Mar 2020 13:32:41
That would be a pretty easy yes from the Oilers and no from NJ. A decent, young 3rd line center for a malcontent and a press box guy. Terrible value for NJ.

12 Mar 2020 17:41:42
Not sure how I feel about this. A young under achieving centre that has more potential should be a target for Puljujarvi. Although Puljujarvi has a lot more potential and his value is kind of unknown. Also Benning helps the team now because he is solid and has more experience than the young upcoming D for Edmonton.

12 Mar 2020 19:23:21
Puljujarvi’s value is probably the most mysterious out of all players.
A 3rd?
A 2nd?
Nobody knows.

19 Mar 2020 13:52:34
It's pretty simple. The big P is worthless right now. Until he gets back in nhl and can prove that he can play there he is not worth a snot.
