8th overall

2nd round pick 2019

Edmonton has enough cap space to take on Zucker with the Wild taking on Russell who the Wild could flip for a mid to late round pick and the Wild seem to be in a re-set mode moving big pieces for younger assest and they almost sent Zucker to Calgary at the trade deadline apparently.

Agree1 Disagree7

12 Apr 2019 18:27:58
Change Russell to Lucic maybe? I think Minny needs to do a small rebuild, especially if they’re trading Zucker after also dumping Granlund. So they should be able to take that contract for the remaining years.

12 Apr 2019 19:17:34
This is fricken horrible for oilers wtf.

11 Apr 2019 17:39:43
8th overall
Brodziak (1.15m cap for one season)


Edmonton gets its speedy winger

Jets get good pick and cap relief for Laine, Trouba signings

Edm can make this work cap wise if they can move brodziak

Agree9 Disagree10

11 Apr 2019 18:17:19
No from the Jets as Ehlers is a young, very talented player that is signed long term on a very reasonable contract. The 8th pick would be good but the player selected would not be ready to step into the Jets lineup for 2/ 3 years and this team is built to win now.

11 Apr 2019 18:29:01
No thanks. There is no reason to trade Ehlers for cap relief. We have other guys that can move before him to clear cap.

11 Apr 2019 19:37:10
besides the fact winnipeg declines, oilers do not have the cap space.

11 Apr 2019 19:51:39
Honestly just can’t work for either team, Winnipeg is in win now mode and oilers don’t have the cap space.

13 Apr 2019 13:49:08
Ehlers took a step back this year because of injuries so his value can't be high atm.

11 Apr 2019 17:09:36
8th overall

3rd round pick

Edmonton gets their puck moving d-man, and Sekera only has a 15 team no trade now and is familiar with the Canes so may be open to going there again,and give Edm the cap space

Carolina gets a good pick to use to try to get a #1 center or to use in trade for a top center

Agree6 Disagree12

11 Apr 2019 19:49:26
Oilers need a forward not a dman imo. we have some young dmen slowly coming up with not a whole lot of forwards.

11 Apr 2019 21:56:55
Huge no from oilers. Add Lucic and maybe oilers consider they’re basically giving the 8th overall for nothing ( a very good pp guy but ECHL level dman 5 on 5. )

12 Apr 2019 05:47:23
ECHL hahahah.

12 Apr 2019 06:08:00
I’m starting to like Faulk. This is funny.

11 Apr 2019 15:18:23
Ott : cbj 2019 1st, Paul

Ana : ana 2022 1st

Cbj 1st won't be that great anyway being mid to late, so why not if you're Ottawa just bank on next year's draft and take a chance on Anahiem dropping the ball in 3 years time.

Ana on the other hand can use the pick to add some more depth and be ready when getslaf and Perry go as they wouldn't necessarily need a full rebuild but rather just a retool as they have a number of good prices still in place like Henrique Silverberg Richie Lindholm fowler. Paul could easily fit in on the main roster there as a depth piece and the pick could be something too as it is mid range and would just need a couple years to develop.

Agree1 Disagree17

11 Apr 2019 16:42:25
This has got to be the dumbest post I’ve seen in a while haha sorry dude : (.

11 Apr 2019 19:07:12
How so? A known mid 1st, and a B prospect who can be a decent role player in bottom 9 for an unknown pick. How is that dumb? Anaheim gets 2 sure things and Ottawa takes a chance on a future draft. Sounds pretty decent to me and no bad contract involved on either side.

11 Apr 2019 19:50:26
"Ottawa takes a chance on a future draft", you just answered why its dumb. lol.

11 Apr 2019 19:52:16
You pretty much just answered why it’s dunb haha.

12 Apr 2019 03:59:25
Nick Paul isn’t a B prospect. He sucks.

11 Apr 2019 11:48:39
Another oilers trade

Oilers: 2019 first (8th overall) , Jesse p & Matt benning

Carolina: 2019 first (21st overall) and Hamilton

Carlina get a player they know have chemistry with aho from wjc , move up in draft + get RD to replace Hamilton

Oilers finally get their puck moving d-man to play with nurse

Agree3 Disagree11

11 Apr 2019 15:36:08
man this is so dumb, if oilers trade the 8th pick they are including one of russell, lucic or sekera because we need cap space, were not includng two young cost controlled players WITH a top 10 pick come on buddy.

11 Apr 2019 16:10:46
We can trade Russel or lucic with carolinas pick?

We need cap to sign a player (s) , still need good players and Hamilton is a player oilers need.

11 Apr 2019 16:46:20
No team will take a 20 somethin first round pick and Lucic . his contract is too monstrous. That won’t be enough. And if oilers were to get Hamilton there is no guarantee the oilers can send off Lucic or Russell without retaining any salary so if that’s the case then we are over the cap and screwed and then also lost 3 young players from the pipeline including two top 10 picks . Obviously Hamilton would be nice on Edmonton but realistically our forwards need improvement, our defense has some good young players in the system already just let them develop.

11 Apr 2019 22:00:10
That can probably land Hamilton but not a 1st on top of that. You’re crazy if you think Benning Carries And value of significance.

12 Apr 2019 04:35:43
Oiler’s can afford this? We must move salary then too, yes? Hamilton is very good player. Carolina paid very much for him. Maybe is not enough to make this trade. No. I don’t think is good trade for Carolina. For Edmonton is very good trade, yes.

10 Apr 2019 10:00:47
Oilers: 2019 1st round (8th overall) , Jesse P + yamamoto or caleb Jones

Ranger: 2019 1st round (2nd overall)

Is this fair ? Or should oilers add another pick?

Agree4 Disagree18

10 Apr 2019 10:46:53
ahhahahaahaaha, h*ll no!

10 Apr 2019 16:46:15
like why tf would oil do that tho are you high wtf man we already got not a lot of top prospects and now we trade 3 for 1.

10 Apr 2019 17:33:42
Oilers is in win now mode, they need players that can play with mcdavid or nuge

Jesse did not work with oilers, 2019 1st pick won't be nhl ready in atleast 2 years and oilers got to many LD to give Jones a real shot at nhl.

Some ”experts” say trade the first round for a nhl player like ehlers or toffoli, the reality is that oilers don't have the cap for those trades.

10 Apr 2019 17:44:30
I have a tough time believing that NJ or NY will trade back and miss out on hughes and Kakko. Both players are nhl ready. Just don't see it happening.


NYR- Hughes

fills needs for both teams.

10 Apr 2019 19:59:56
Redwing. Devils will obviously draft Hughes.

10 Apr 2019 20:53:35
Kappo Kakko will be better then Hughes mark my words he’ll be an superstar. Drais+ for 2nd overall is what it’d take IMO there is no reason for the rangers to trade that pick.

10 Apr 2019 21:18:57
Lol drai +? Haha

Drai is a superstar 50 goals 105P

Why trade him for that?

11 Apr 2019 02:45:13
Why would Rangers trade him ( Kappo ) / ( Hughes ) for anything less? I think Hughes has a big chance of going 2nd.

11 Apr 2019 04:21:39
Vbvv get real man. The guy just buried 50 and is not even halfway through his prime years. There’s not a single draft pick alone worth that. You going to trade a star for a prospect who under the best case scenario will be as good as the guy you just traded and leave yourself completely open to downside if he does not meet those sky-high expectations. Nobody takes you seriously because you post crap like that, and you suggest the oilers would have to add? Pffft.

11 Apr 2019 19:54:47
Vb lay off the paint cans man you’re actually losing your mind go take a walk or something christ. Kakko for a young 50 goal 100+ point player plus more . get a clue.

11 Apr 2019 22:02:31
I’m not saying oilers make that trade I’m just saying the Rangers wouldn’t trade the pick for anything less. Drais is obviously very good but is he a PPG player without McDavid? Probably not.

11 Apr 2019 23:48:53
Is ppg without McDavid yes. 50 goal scorer maybe not.

12 Apr 2019 04:41:41
Draisaitl plays very much without McDavid and still gets very many points. He is star player, yes.

Puljujarvi is no good. Yamamoto is no good. Is 8th going to be better than 2nd? Maybe. Probably, yes. But maybe not. Very many times no. Perhaps Oiler’s get best player at 8. Is no good trade for both teams.

12 Apr 2019 16:13:40
No vbb, why would Oilers trade a superstar for a maybe, if you haven't noticed oil sometimes pick busts. But do think kakko could go first overall. he's like 30 pounds more than Hughes and seems probably more nhl ready playing in a mens league. If he has a good showing at mens world championship there's a real good chance he'll go 1st.

Agree7 Disagree12

09 Apr 2019 23:57:10
I’d rather the leafs Buy out Tavares, Marner and Mathews then trade a 7th round pick for Faulk. Faulk is terrible he is the worst player in the game defensively. Dermotte is replacing Gardiner as the 2nd pairing LHD would be idiotic to trade him for anything short of an upgrade. Not a chance leafs make that trade with Edmonton. I get the point of dumping Zaitsev but not at the expense of Lilijgren and btw he is a RHD. Benning holds no value.

Nylander for Chychrun isn’t terrible.

10 Apr 2019 01:28:24
chych > willy
kadri > faulk

seriously the price to downgrade zaits to benning is lilj? for reals? contract aside that doesn't help the leafs at all.

hainsy is a free agent. dermott worth more than a 2nd to me.

10 Apr 2019 03:27:22
No from leafs idk why they’d make that lol
No from leafs
Huge no from oil come on bruh like what
Don’t know why leafs would trade Dermott.

10 Apr 2019 04:00:24
Why would leafs trade dermott and Hainsey for a 2nd? Hainsey is ufa after this year and dermott is worth more than a mid 2nd. Also wouldn’t want to give up Liljegren at this point to dump Zaitsev, not for Benning anyways. Personally I like the 1st trade but also think leafs could get s better return if they were to trade kadri.

10 Apr 2019 04:57:20
Liljegren is a RD and I’d rather not give up on him yet. Hainsey is a UFA and I say Toronto definitely keeps Dermott, especially if Gardiner walks. I’d be ok with a left side of Reilly, Muzzin and Dermott. I understand wanting to get rid of Zaitsev’s contract but there has to be a better way. The right side defense obviously needs an upgrade. Nylander for the best RD they can get would be the way I’d like to see it. Sorry but I also think Kadri stays until he’s up for a new contract. Toronto is definitely going to have cap problems and may have to lose someone, however I don’t think they will need to shake the roster up that much.

10 Apr 2019 16:47:39
confirmed that faulk banged vbs mom, no other reason for him to hate on him so badly lol.

10 Apr 2019 19:07:27
Notdelusional2 ahahaha

10 Apr 2019 20:55:50
Faulk for Kadri is a joke no other way of saying it. Kadri=RNH. RNH for Faulk? No Edmonton doesn’t touch that.

10 Apr 2019 21:41:36
Before Nuges 70 point season I’m pretty sure the rumours were a small add to RNH for Faulk. In my eyes his value definitely went up a little after this season but he was undervalued before. I agree no from Toronto though.

11 Apr 2019 15:20:25
Lol too bad Dubas already said nylander will not be traded as long as he runs thing lol.

11 Apr 2019 15:40:32
Oilers need RNH more than they need Faulk so yeah we obviously wouldn't touch that! Kadri is expendable (even tho i do not think leafs should trade him)

11 Apr 2019 22:04:01
Well Kadri is in the Same position as Nuge 3rd C on the depth chart only difference is Nuge moved up on the wing.

12 Apr 2019 04:48:06
We can afford Zaitsev? I don’t think so. Lucic + Zaitsev is $10M in bad contracts. Why we do that? Is not a good trade. We have Bouchard. Why then do we need Liljegren?

12 Apr 2019 16:40:50
Nylander is untradeable, he's pretty much a cap dump. .5 ppg at his price, no team is going to touch that. Especially not getting a good young dman.

09 Apr 2019 19:15:17
Ottawa Senators -
• (LW) Mikkel Boedker (4M x 1YR)

(LA dumps 2 contracts and gets breathing room and are able to pursue free agents signings while adding some scoring touch and ottawa gets a good prospect and a high first)

Ottawa Senators -
• (RW) Bobby Ryan (7.25M x 3YR)
Chicago Blackhawks -
• (RHD) Brent Seabrook (6.875M x 5YR)
• (2019) 1st-Round Pick
• (C) Philipp Kurashev

(Ottawa take on a contract for 2 more years than Bobby Ryan for a 1st round pick and a prospect, chicago dumps term and bobby ryan could start to look like his hold self alongside Toews)

Alex Formenton - Jean Pageau - Max Veronneau
Rudolf Balcers - Chris Tierney - Dustin Brown

09 Apr 2019 20:44:30
😂 Did Melnyk win the powerball or something?

09 Apr 2019 21:24:49
So. your a sens fan?

09 Apr 2019 22:05:02
Seabrook is not so bad too give a 1st with taking a more expensive cap dump. Maybe if Ottawa took a good chunk of Ryan's contract.

10 Apr 2019 01:44:30
Top 3 pick to dump Seabrook for Bobby Ryan.

10 Apr 2019 07:11:44
This was obviously before the lottery *headshake

11 Apr 2019 15:27:31
Ottawa would not have to eat any contract on Ryan lol his contract is nearly done why eat contract and take term on another that's just dumb.

As for those deals no to both by Ottawa unless Bowen Byram is still available at the time of the pick. The rest of this year's draft is not worth handicapping the team with term and contract to the point that the young guys they want to sign can't be afforded or fit under the cap.

12 Apr 2019 04:57:46
Byram plays WHL. Is no good league. So many players play oh so good in WHL but cannot play nhl. Brooks and Steel is example, yes.

Ottawa does not want old overpaid players like Seabrook, Pfaneuf, Brown. No team wants players like that. Ottawa wants young and cheap. Is good way to make rebuild.

13 Apr 2019 01:39:08
Regardless of before/ after the lottery — Melnyk is the cheapest owner in the league and while it would be beneficial to the Sens for them to eat bad contracts in exchange for picks/ prospects during their rebuild, he’s too much of a penny pincher to do it.

Owning sports teams is really a pursuit for the super wealthy (people who do not do it to try and make money but for a hobby/ bragging rights) and corporations who can gain from an advertisement/ marketing angle. Melnyk is neither.

08 Apr 2019 11:50:16

Agree5 Disagree24

07 Apr 2019 16:30:10
Absolutely no idea why Arizona would agree to that.
No from oilers.
Hahaha wow easy no from St. Louis. Bruh. Even if top 10.
No from oilers Risto is ass.
Ferland would never sign that he’s going to be seeking more.

07 Apr 2019 19:01:03
Ristolainen can move the puck though. If that was enough for him I’d definitely do it.

07 Apr 2019 20:45:56
It's not anywhere near enough for him.

07 Apr 2019 23:12:36
All those players must really want to must really want to play in Edmonton for those low ball offers.

07 Apr 2019 23:14:10
Risto just won the nhl masters and that’s definitely not something oilers need. He can move the puck and he’s got a big shot sure but he’s horrendous in his own end. Sekera and bear are both capable puck movers so saying he can move the puck is pretty irrelevant I think.

08 Apr 2019 01:03:28
Eh, its basically Pulj for Risto tbh. Sekera doesn't have that much value, I mean, 5.5 Million for the next 2 years isn't really a good contract and after all his injuries, its unlikely someone bites on him, even for cheap. I'd say Bear nearly insulates his value, and then you got Pulj+ a little for Risto. After Dahlin, although Risto's +/ - wasn't great, its really not everything you can base the dman on [look at Ron Hainsey. lol]. I'd take him anyday on Toronto for a package of like Kapanen+Zaitsev+Borgman, but j my opinion.

08 Apr 2019 05:19:36
Getting rid of Zaitsevs contract is the key part in that, does buffalo think Kap and borg (not sure who he is tbh) are good enough to lose one of their “top” dmen and take back a bad contract.

13 Apr 2019 01:40:35
We don’t need both Ristolainen and Parayko. Larsson is better than Ristolainen. We keep him.
