Matt Martin (LW - 2.5 Million x 2 Years - 25% Salary Retention) and 2018 4th Round Selection to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Tyler Ennis (C/ LW - 4.2 Million x 1 Year)

- Similar contracts and cap totals being swapped; one at less of a hit for an additional cost. Martin is worse than Ennis, so the pick is added, however, Ennis’ production for his cap hit is pretty worrisome. Toronto needs more cap hit for the 2019/ 20 season because of Matthews&Marner’s contracts, so they can afford the pricy tag for Ennis for the next year. If Minny wants free agents, then it makes more sense for them to take the cheaper contract, albeit for an extra year.

Jake Gardiner (D - 4.05 Million x 1 Year) to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Connor Murphy (D - 3.85 Million x 4 Years) and 2018 3rd Round Selection.

- Chicago could use an offensively minded dman, Toronto could use a defensive oriented one. Although Murphy has a longer term, and is locked down for longer, Gardiner is the superior dman based on the previous seasons statistics, and that's why Chicago adds the 3rd Round Pick. Gardiner could be useful alongside a true DFD like Brent Seabrook, and Murphy could partner well with Morgan Rielly.

2018 3rd Round Selection (Chicago) + Curtis McElhinney (G - 0.8 Million x 1 Year) + 2019 4th Round Selection to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Valeri Nichushkin (LW - Rights - Contract Extension: 2.25 Million x 3 Years) .

- Dallas acquires two draft picks and a cheap backup goalie to aid Ben Bishop, in order to not overplay him during the season. Mac played better than Lehtonen, and tbh, Dallas needs to move on from him. Toronto acquires a wild card: a guy who was a 30 point man in his first stint in the NHL, and a guy who has been 0.5 PPG in the KHL. He could be great alongside Auston, or could bust out, be worse than Connor Brown, and then defect back to Russia.

2018 2nd Round Selection + Josh Leivo (RW - 0.75 Million x 1 Year) to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Samuel Morin (D - RFA - Contract Extension: 1.5 Million x 2 Years) + 2018 5th Round Selection.

- Philly has a ton of young dmen (Prov, Ghost, Hagg, Sanheim, Myers), as well as some veterans such as Gudas, so Morin seems expandable, especially since his growth has somewhat stunted in Phillys farm system. Its possible he could use a fresh start, and maybe he could turn it around, especially on a team that could certainly use DFD. Philly gets a bottom six winger who never got a chance in Toronto, and a decent pick around 55th overall. Toronto gets a guy who could be a solid DFD for the future, or a guy who may be no more than a 5-6 dman.

*Samuel Morin (1.5 Million), Igor Ozhiganov (0.8 Million)

Frederik Andersen (5.0 Million)
Garrett Sparks (0.85 Million)

Total Cap: 68.725 Million
- Fourth line is the checking line against teams top lines, Hyman, Brown and Lindholm are all defensively responsible and will be the matchup line.

When Matthews and Marner and Dermotts extensions kick in.

Valeri Nichushkin (2.25 Million) - Auston Matthews (10.0 Million) - Mitch Marner 7.0 Million)
Patrick Marleau (6.25 Million) - Nazem Kadri (4.5 Million) - William Nylander (5.75 Million)
Andreas Johnsson (1.75 Million) - Miro Aaltonen (0.8 Million) - Kasperi Kapanen (0.85 Million)
Zach Hyman (2.25 Million) - Par Lindholm (0.85 Million) - Connor Brown (2.1 Million)
*Carl Grundstrom (ELC), Trevor Moore (ELC)

Travis Dermott (0.875 Million) - John Carlson (8.0 Million)
Morgan Rielly (5.0 Million) - Connor Murphy (3.8 Million)

*Andreas Borgman (0.875 Million)

Frederik Andersen (5.0 Million)
Garrett Sparks (0.85 Million)

Total Cap: 76.525 Million

With the cap going up, this seems reasonable. If not, a Marleau trade could happen and could become a legitimate possibility.

U know what u put a lot of thought and energy into this so I read the who thing, some things are questionable? But for the most part very realistic and in depth.

21 May 2018 19:06:29
There is just way to many variables for this to be believable IMO I do like a lot of those ideas tho but I think Carlson gets more and I’d rather a different package for Gardiner and I’m sure Chicago would want more term then 1 year with Gardiner. Valeri Nichuskinin is pretty redundant although I do like him not sure if Dallas Bites.

21 May 2018 19:07:32
Lol ty @Kings.

I didn't have much to do over the long weekend so I decided to make a post regarding what I'd like the leafs future to be like.

S. Weber D
C. Price G

1st 2018
L. Draisaitl C
C. Talbot G

M. Pacioretty LW

N. Bjugstad C
2nd 2020

Agree5 Disagree13

21 May 2018 17:54:56
1 year of a rental is not getting a 25 year old 40-50 point center.

21 May 2018 15:08:29
EDM - Klefbom, 2nd
MTL - Pacioretty

Breakdown : MTL needs a left shot to play with Weber.

EDM could use a perennial goal scorer in their ranks, that could very likely score over 40 goals if paired with McDavid.

Not sure that this is exactly what Marc Bergevin expected as a return but it is a realistic return nonetheless.

Agree2 Disagree11

21 May 2018 16:29:40
im all for trading klefbom, but in a deal for a D man NOT a winger. I like Klefbom and the only reason I would want to trade him is because he has value and i would add something to him to upgrade a D man. Not trading bin for a winger, The D would be even more worse then. This is just so bad.

21 May 2018 17:09:04
Oilers need a RW but not more LW.

21 May 2018 18:03:53
@yup I was thinking EDM could then trade RNH for one of Anaheim or MIN's young dmen.

21 May 2018 21:13:57
Lol dumb for oilers.

22 May 2018 12:50:44
I'd rate he keep Nuge on mcdavids wing for at least one year. Find Drai a winger. Move Lucic to third lien wth Strome. Rotate some winters around to find chemistry with those pairings.
Trade Klefbom, 10th overall for an I phrased top D man.
And I don't think Minn or ANH really need a center in Nuge do they? Not ANH anyways.

21 May 2018 14:53:12
Are these ideas realistic.

1) Shea Weber to Toronto for Nylander + 1st(2nd?)?

2) Price + patch to Nashville for Tolvanen, Mismash + turris(only to balance $$)+ 2nd

3) Petry + 2nd to Phoenix for Strome

Move the older "value" players while they still have "value"

Agree1 Disagree11

Shea Weber
(Montreal retain 2 million/ year)

Connor Carrick
1st 2018.

21 May 2018 17:10:50
Nylander has more value than weber? Montreal add not Toronto.

21 May 2018 17:21:57
Absolutely zero chance Toronto makes that trade.

21 May 2018 17:38:20
Oh my.

21 May 2018 19:09:27
If Montreal retains 2 mil off Weber I’d do Nylander + the 25th overall. Weber is definitely worth his contract right now. Kind of scared he dosent rebound from his injury now tho.

21 May 2018 21:46:49
Weber is worth 5.8 million until he’s 41? You would trade a 20 year old star coming off of back to back 60+ point seasons for an aging defenseman with injury history and the NHLs worst contract? Thank God you’re not in Dubas’ position.

21 May 2018 11:12:08
Edm: RNH , sekera 1st round pick 2018 (to take sekera cap)

Arizona : OEL

Agree0 Disagree11

21 May 2018 12:52:37
Try to add at least a Yamamoto or Benson but it might when take more tbh. Your giving up a decent second line center that is well paid, and old overpaid defensemen which just took some value of RNH. Then the first ( 10 overall doesn't compensate for that at all. ) they're still about 40% more value in OEL then this whole package because you are Arizona is essentially relieving cap from Edm jn this trade so Edm would have to overpay to get OEL if they dump cap out you know? Florida had to give yp 11 overall pick Lawson Crouse just to get rid of Bolland so I imagine Arizona might want Puljujarvi on top of that package.

21 May 2018 13:37:25
RNH would be the best center in Arizona?

Better to trade OEL Now, he told swedish media that he want to be a contender not just earn 8m in a bottom team.

With the right pieces oilers Will be that team.

21 May 2018 16:32:29
Sekera wouldn't waive to go to Arizona. Nobody would waive their NTC to go to Arizona. Lol. got to stop trying to add cap dumps with NTCs to Arizona.
I hope Nuge stays with McDavid now.
I would trade klefbom, 10th overall and something for OEL.

21 May 2018 07:07:09

Oscar Lindberg

6th 2018

Lindberg isn't a fit in Vegas. The Rangers will gladly take him back.

Dumda to phil gostisbehere to minn who adds?

Agree1 Disagree9

21 May 2018 00:47:01
Wild adds for sure.

21 May 2018 04:16:49
What would minn have to add.
Im a flyers fan i think gost is a good player but question his defence postioning and phyiscal size
Plus gives sandheim and prov more offence oportunities dumba had his best year and is better defencesivly.

20 May 2018 21:49:23
Arizona Cayotes:

- Milan Lucic ($1.5 million retained)

- 40th overall pick

Edmonton Oilers:

- Dave Bolland

Seems pretty fair. This is if he wants to wave his NMC and go to Arizona.

Arizona unloads Dave Bolland's contract (5.5 million for the next 2 years)

Oilers get rid of Lucic's terrible contract.

Also, Lucic is still a good forward and at 4.5 million for the next 5 years is pretty good.

Oilers lose cap space right now, but will help them when Bolland's contract is up.

Agree2 Disagree11

21 May 2018 05:13:41
isn't bolland on litr and potentially never playing again, essentially dead cap space? why would edmonton add to lucic to get him?

20 May 2018 16:45:18
With a new GM it seems like Carolina is going to make some moves and Faulk could be had he'd be a great fit on the oilers top pp

Option 1

Edmonton: Jesse Puljujarvi and Tyler Benson

Carolina: Justin Faulk

Edmonton: gets a dynamic presence on the top PP and could potentially thrive sheltered under a defensive minded Larsson paired with Nurse or Reunite him with Sekera.

Carolina: while i don't like to use the term bust it does not look like Jesse Puljujarvi will reach his potential of being a game changer like Blake Wheeler. He could still be a very effective top 6 player and has a small chance of blowing up with Aho with prior chemistry.

Option 2

Edmonton: Milan Lucic*, Jesse Puljujarvi and 10th overall

Carolina: Justin Faulk, Justin Willams and 42nd overall

* hopefully Lucic will waive his MNTC if he feels unwanted in Edmonton

Edmonton: rids then selves of a useless atrocious contract while getting a top 4 dman and a great presance in Williams who is a veteran Guznetzel in the playoffs.

Carolina: can afford to take back a bad contract and by doing this they get two very good pieces for their rebuild.

Agree6 Disagree8

20 May 2018 19:34:50
Jesus. With how much you talk down Faulk in surprised you think the Oilers should trade Puljujarvi for him.

20 May 2018 20:05:44
Benson won’t be included.
Second one obvious no from Oilers jeez.

20 May 2018 20:46:53
Lucic won't waive to go to Carolina.
You would have better chances asking Sekera to waive to go to Carolina where he has played before if you want to add a cap dump from Edm.
But I actually believe both Lucic and Sekera will be an Oiler opening night next season. Lucic for sure anyways.

20 May 2018 21:22:27
@Yup Faulk is still a great top PP dman but besides that he’s subpar at best. Also I’m not sure what makes you think he won’t waive but I’ll respect it.

@McJesus I believe you underrate the negative value Lucic holds and on top of that they’re getting 3 good pieces I’d make that trade from the oilers POV. They could add a good peice from FA on top of that package.

20 May 2018 16:34:06
Option 1
Edmonton: Justin Faulk

Carolina: Jesse Puljujarvi and Tyler Benson

Edmonton: gets a their dynamic pp right shot that can be sheltered by Larsson. Faulk had chemistry with Sekera so that could be a potential d pair if they're willing to push down Nurse

Carolina: gets a two high risk, high reward prospects that could potentially both be top 6 player. Jesse Puljujarvi could potentially resurrect chemistry with Aho and become I great player. I hate to use the word bust but With that being said as of now it looks very unlikely he reaches his potential of being a game changer like Wheeler

Option 2

Edmonton: Malian Lucic, Jesse Puljujarvi and 10th overall

Carolina: Justin Faulk, Justin Willams and 42nd overall

Edmonton: First of all Milian Lucic will waive his MNTC if he feels unwanted in Edmonton ( probably). Edmonton gets out of a terrible contract while getting very good value back. I think Edmonton would really benefit from Willams Presance.

Carolina: Wants to get tougher and can afford to take a bad contract back. Puljujarvi and the 10th overall are two huge steps in a rebuild.
