A more realistic idea:

(LW) Mikkel Boedker to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for (D) Kris Russell.

- Edmonton could use speedy wingers. Boedker is exactly that. Maybe he revitalizes alongside McDavid. Russell is extra as a DFD with Larsson and Nurse there as better versions of that.
- Ottawa is looking at trading EK. If they do, their blueline will be led by Chabot and Ceci. They could use more help. Russell could be a good mentor for Chabot too and could be a replacement for Methot,

Agree8 Disagree6

01 Aug 2018 13:43:48
if they trade Russell for a winger they create a big hole on D and then rely on a rookie and Benning full time. I would trade for Boadker, but I would trade a winger and a draft pick for him, not Russell. Russell is the only leftie who can play right side well with only Larsson and Benning being righties.
Nurse Larson
Klefbom Russell
Sekera Benning.

01 Aug 2018 14:06:29
I don’t think it’s bad, makes sense with how you described it but I think Edmonton might have to add a bit. Just because I can’t see Ottawa trading the biggest piece of the hoffman deal so quick without getting prospects and/ or picks while being able to justify it to fans.

01 Aug 2018 15:30:51
If trading Russel leaves a hole on D, you've got bigger problems.

01 Aug 2018 22:42:42
Oil signed Reider and now have Aberg so I don’t think Boedker is much of a need right now but I would’ve been all over that last season. But as far as losing Russell they could easily sign someone to eat some minutes. Benning was definitely more effective on the third pairing but signing a bottom pairing vet could still work. And I don’t think they’ll make a major trade now that Bouchard is in the system. Also I can see them wanting to save face in a sense but Boedker has little to no value.

01 Aug 2018 22:58:25
@yup

Thats also nearly 20 million tied into your d, with Nurse needing pay. Russell>Selera so Ottawa wouldn't take Sekera, and the others are better. You guys need to acquire some help on the wing without depleting your wings further, and I think Russell is the right way to go. And @unsportsmanlike is right 100%. Lol.

01 Aug 2018 23:17:46
I’m no oilers fan but why does everyone think if a winger is traded there Mcdavid would “revitalize him” would Mikkel Boedker really play 1st line? If that’s the case then take every 37 point player from last yr and trade them to Edmonton and they will be all stars.

02 Aug 2018 04:53:52
@madeindade28 I didn’t watch all of there games but Boedker had some chemistry with Draisaitl on team Europe during the World Cup or whatever it was called. Again I haven’t watched a ton of Boedker but he plays a similar north south speed game to Hall, who had good chemistry with Draisaitl.

01 Aug 2018 07:03:29
Flyers: Dale Weise, Michael Raffl, Scott Laughton, 4th 2020

Canucks Trade: Brandon Sutter, 2nd 2019.

Awesome, just what the Canucks need.

Deadline trade:

OTT: Duschene
WPG: 1st Round Pick 2019, Stanley, Harkins

Agree3 Disagree18

31 Jul 2018 15:27:02
I'm not saying its an unfair package its just that after this season Duschene is an UFA and would want a big raise and the Jets already have to extend, Wheeler, Laine, Connor, Copp, Dano and Trouba next year and they wouldn't be able to fit him in under the cap.

31 Jul 2018 20:20:21
Does anyone else know that his name is Duchene? Like its not hard to spell it the right way holy every post.

31 Jul 2018 20:49:39
Actually his name is Matt. His family name is Duchene.

31 Jul 2018 22:31:11
Would deffinetley be a rental, as to what IslandJet was saying., however if they are in need of that one peice for another cup run, may want to explore it.

31 Jul 2018 23:21:59
I agree Islandjet. I think AJ01 is forgetting there is a salary cap. Duchene would be a great pickup, the Jets just can't afford him.

01 Aug 2018 02:01:13
I highly doubt Ottawa would basically give away what seems to be the 1st overall draft pick for a few scraps (very late 1st, Stanley, Harkins)

Not saying that Stanley Harkins and a late 1st is not good, its just that for the first overall pick (which is what Ottawa basically paid for duchene), the return is weak

01 Aug 2018 02:13:49
salary retention would be the only to justify that package anyway.

01 Aug 2018 03:15:10
Even as a rental, that is a bit much. Stastny only cost a first and a decent prospect, not 2.

01 Aug 2018 06:29:07
Duchene is a tier above Stastny.

01 Aug 2018 22:36:22
as a rental piece: winnipeg would say yes, but i see them wanting to get affordable extension soon after because i don't see them paying that much to lose them like statsny

as long term: winnipeg says no because no resign guarentee.

lolololol literal downgrade in skill and age. terrible for van and edm.

31 Jul 2018 15:16:49
I can't see either the Canucks or Oilers ever doing these trades. The Jets would have to add.

31 Jul 2018 16:05:27
Schifele for Sutter
Schifele for R. Strome.

31 Jul 2018 21:40:43
I guess we know who AJ cheers for.

31 Jul 2018 22:40:20
vb for the win.

31 Jul 2018 23:24:13
Totally unrealistic. How would you pitch those trades to Edmonton and Vancouver? What incentive do they have to make those trades?

31 Jul 2018 04:49:12
My trade got cut off it was

Tanev

Brodie

1st Round Pick
Liljegren
Hainsey
Kapanen


Flames receive - 1st-Round Pick + Kapanen
Canucks receive Liljegren + Hainsey
Leafs receive Brodie + Tanev


Morgan Rielly - Chris Tanev
TJ Brodie - Nikita Zaitsev
Jake Gardiner - Connor Carrick

Agree5 Disagree19

31 Jul 2018 06:10:02
Bodie over Gardiner? No way but regardless you know nothing about the leafs because if you did you’d know Dermotte stepped up as a stable dman and is a lock on the roster especially over Carrick and probably Zaitsev. Also Bodie ( a LHD ) is more effective on the right side.

The lines would be
Rielly-Bodie
Gardiner-Tanev ( Gardiner needs Tanev way more then Rielly )
Dermotte-Zaitsev

As for the trades not bad tbh imo.

31 Jul 2018 21:27:37
Well someone keeps referring to Brodie as bodie so obviously don't know much or anything about him so why you so quick to say no? Look him up, its T. J. Brodie.

01 Aug 2018 00:33:03
If an orthodontist spells Teeth, Teath does that mean he knows nothing about teeth or could it mean he studied his art in a forgin language 🤔 I know T. J Bodie ( Brodie ) plays on the flames, I know he’s a LHD and I know he had a down year with his switch to the left side. I think I’ll keep calling him Bodie for my self amusement.

31 Jul 2018 04:47:25
(THREE WAY TRADE)

Vancouver Canucks
• (D) Chris Tanev

Calgary Flames
• (D) TJ Brodie

Toronto Maple Leafs
• (2019) 1st-Round Pick
• (D) Timothy Liljegren
• (D) Ron Hainsey
• (RW) Kasperi Kapanen

Agree3 Disagree15

31 Jul 2018 04:54:14
That’s not a 3 way trade lol.

31 Jul 2018 04:44:20
The Toronto Maple Leafs trade (C) William Nylander to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for (RD) Justin Faulk.

The Toronto Maple Leafs also acquire (LD) TJ Brodie from the Calgary Flames in exchange for a (2019) 1st-Round Pick and (RW) Connor Brown.

The Toronto Maple Leafs then send (LD) Jake Gardiner to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for (C) Ryan Strome.


Hyman - Tavares - Marner
Marleau - Matthews - Kapanen
Johnsson - Kadri - Strome
Ennis - Lindholm - Leivo

Rielly - Faulk
Brodie - Zaitsev
Carrick - Hainsey

Agree1 Disagree17

31 Jul 2018 06:14:24
I’d do Nylander to Carolina for the rights to never have Faulk wear a leafs jersey, causing turnovers, goals and producing almost no offence.

Faulk would not bring back Nylander. The day Faulk wears a leafs jersey is the day I hop on the oilers bandwagon.

31 Jul 2018 13:31:42
1) Faulk must have banged VBBs mom at some point

2) would not trade Nylander for Faulk

3) the Brodie one is probably close in value, but I wouldn’t do it. Not the kind of upgrade I would want for that price.

4) Hell no lol just because Chirelli took strome back as value for a top 6 forward doesn’t mean anyone else thinks he’s worth a 50 pt top 4 D. One GM screwing the pooch on a trade does not create a new league wide value for that player. If chiarellis trades set league values, oilers should trade Larson to Colorado for Nate Mackinnon and a pick. Because Larson is worth a Hart trophy winning forward and Mackinnon finished second.

31 Jul 2018 14:11:46
Ohh my I just saw the Strome for Gardiner Trade that’s horid Gardiner out produced Strome as a Dman.

Talbot >> Anderson.

31 Jul 2018 21:50:17
Did I miss something yupp? Was there a Talbot/ Andersen debate somewhere? I’d love to see how that plays out.

31 Jul 2018 22:13:16
Hahaha. Ya that was the post below to Jims comment ranking Leafs players and mentioning Anderson and his 4th in Vezina voting. So I figure I would also just mention the previous 4th in vezina voting. Entertaining myself. 🍻🍻🍻.

31 Jul 2018 23:00:45
Wrong post but regardless, I’m not comparing players from team to team. Saying a goalie in the running for a Vezina, even though a distant 4th, could be considered more valuable than our own winger.

I guess you still get touchy when someone mentions Chiarelli though lol Strome for eberle, woof. Sorry just entertaining myself 😉.

01 Aug 2018 02:49:35
i liked getting rid of Eberle. Strome was never supposed to take over his role. But once the season started and Puljujarvi wasn't ready to take on Eberles role and Yamamoto went back down after his 9 games. PC should have made a deal for a winger then, had the cap space. That's what I would criticize him for.
Don't act like your team hasn't ever made and bad moves or signings. Lol. Jeez.
Phanuef, Lupul, Clarkson, Kessel, Robidas.

PC should have also traded for a D man when he knew Sekera would be out until December. Instead Aubutu and Benning weren't good enough to handle a full load. That was bad. He should have also traded for a back up goalie when talbot was out and he tried playing someone with less than 20 NHL games on a back to back in Toronto and Montreal in late November.

01 Aug 2018 05:02:44
The leafs current manegment hasn’t made any of those signings.

01 Aug 2018 13:45:47
Ohhhh you're absolutely right. The almighty Leafs are gods and you're not a homer.

01 Aug 2018 15:46:55
This management team is the one that made all those bad moves go away lol not make them. As where Chiarelli is the guy making the bonehead moves :

hall for Larson, eberle for Strome, 1st (barzal) and 2nd for Reinhart, Lucic contract, paid Draisaitl $34 mill more than his agent asked for 12 months earlier

He traded a 1st and 2nd (one becoming barzal) for 2012 4th overall Reinhart who had played 8 NHL games and never made their team. Then Yakupov is a bust and has to go with 110+ pts in 250 nhl games at the same age lol and he gets a 3rd rounder in return!

and he’s still the guy there allowed to call the shots and unable to get out from under a single bad contract in Lucic. Dorian and Bergevin are given a hard time, and rightfully so, but to be honest, the difference between them and Chiarelli in Connor Mcdavid.

01 Aug 2018 18:07:17
Oilers need to let go of Chareli he was fired from Boston for a good reason they should target Mark Hunter he made debatably the biggest dynasty in the mordern CHL with the London knights. Also the only bad move that the new leafs manegment made was Stephan Robidias. But it wasn’t that bad.

02 Aug 2018 04:11:02
Yeah lol leafs got out of Lupul, phaneuf, robidas, Clarkson and kessel, retaining a total of $1.2 mill per season and have kapanen, Andersen, Calvin pickard, Eemeli Rasanen (19 year old 6’7 d prospect) still with us to show for those deals (plus Nathan Horton of course lol)

Don’t think this management has a lot to apologize for. Leafs have added 5 of their top 7 players under this regime. (Matthews (handed to them), marner, JT, Andersen and Nylander)

Since Chiarelli took over, the only players he has upgraded is Mcdavid (handed to him) and trading for talbot. Besides that, he inherited RNH, Klefbom and Draisatl, and massively downgraded Hall and Eberle.

We let players walk to UFA that would be better than anyone he has managed to acquire in 3 years on the job.

30 Jul 2018 11:46:24
Weird, Unrealistic Idea:

(RW) William Nylander + (LD) Jake Gardiner to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for (RD) Colton Parayko + (C/ W) Robby Fabbri.

Idk. I’d have a real hard time parting with Nylander, but a return of Parayko is absolutely solid. He’s exactly what Toronto needs. And St. Louis could use a winger to play behind Tarasenko and Willy can also play centre if Schenn takes a step back.

Gardiner and Fabbri are added since Parayko for Nylander is onesided for the Leafs imo, so Gardiner balances the deal out as St. Louis gets a replacement d on the offside. However, Gardiner and Nylander for Colt alone seems unfair, so Fabbri is added as a replacement for Nylander. Fabbris lost a lot of value after his injuries and can bounce back in TO imo.

Lineup:
Zach Hyman - John Tavares - Mitch Marner
Patrick Marleau - Auston Matthews - Robby Fabbri
Andreas Johnsson - Nazem Kadri - Kasperi Kapanen
Tyler Ennis - Par Lindholm - Connor Brown

Morgan Rielly - Colton Parayko
Travis Dermott - Nikita Zaitsev
Connor Carrick - Ron Hainsey.

Agree5 Disagree19

30 Jul 2018 13:52:54
But value wise Parayko > Nylander even if Gardiner = Fabri which I think Fabri has a little more value than Gardiner straight up as well.
Blue decline, easily. Take out Fabri and I don't think I would even part ways with Parayko.

30 Jul 2018 13:54:21
I don't get this trade

Parayko> Nylander

Fabbri> Gardiner

How is this fair for St Louis. Ok you're going to say Fabbri is fragile fair enough. But once he's says healthy he's going to be a 50+ point player that's not even 23 yet. So yes he's worth more then Gardiner.

30 Jul 2018 14:11:24
Colt, so a 50 point forward is worth more than a 50 point dman? Your argument seems way off.

30 Jul 2018 14:24:42
I think it’s close. I would understand people saying Gardiner and Fabbri being added doesn’t make up for the gap between Nylander and parayko. That’s fair to say. But a guy that you hope can one day be a 50 pt player is not more valuable than a 27 year old top 4 d that QBs a PP and puts up 50+ pts while making $4mill lol that’s like me saying Connor Brown had 20 goals and I hope he could reach 45-50 pts so the Hurricanes would need to add in a Brown for Faulk deal haha that’s dumb.

30 Jul 2018 15:23:21
lets break this down a bit
Parayko 5.5 mil 4 years
fabbri 925k 1 year then rfa

Gardnier 4.05Mil 1 year UFA
Nylander notsigned rfa

parayko >> Nylander
Parayko >> Gardnier

Fabbri >Gardnier (contract rfa control)
Nylander > Fabbri

Blues are at the cap and need to sign Schmaltz. Taking on Gardnier and Nylander would be impossible. Also Blues do not have a RHD able to take Paraykos mins (24 a night) Gardnier is LHD and we already have Edmondson, Dunn, Jaybo, Gunner. SO not a positional need. Also with blues getting ROR, Perron, Bozak, Maroon and with Thomas and Kyrou coming up they are set on wingers. Maybee before the ror trade but not now. Just doesn't make sense.

30 Jul 2018 16:20:22
Agree with redwing aside from the fact that Gardiner.

30 Jul 2018 16:47:39
Really guys? Fabbri => Gardiner? Cmon. He was a 50 point dman last year. No way you can say a guy who has a career high of 37 points and missed all of last year is better. And if Gardiner was going to design, I think it’s close. Parayko > Nylander yes, but I do think Gardiners gap if resigned over Fabri makes up. Add a 2nd or so if so needed. Nylander has 70 pt potential.

30 Jul 2018 18:12:01
Fabbri is making 925k and is RFA after this year we need his ELC status till Jaybo and Gunner are gone freeing up 8.3 mil. plus 4-6 million in dead weight.

Gardnier is going to want more money, And he is LHD. We have 4 LHD currently Edmondson, Vince Dunn, Jaybo, Gunner. We don't need Gardnier. Blues also have Jake walman and a few others in the waiting to get into the nhl and they are entry level.

This trade doesn't make sense. Blues are set all their weaknesses, (goalie RW) are going to be filled internally by thomasKyrou Kostin Husso Fitzpatrick Binnginton, Peronovich, Bokk, Wallman.

They will all be on elcs and rfa status. they also have depth players power forward like players in Nolan Stevens and Eric Foley.

30 Jul 2018 19:03:53
I’m not saying blues need Gardiner or blues do the deal. All I’m saying is calling Fabbri better than Gardiner shows that it’s just a personal bias, not reality. Again, it’s the brown over Faulk thing.

30 Jul 2018 21:37:52
No Jim it shows value and teams needs considerations.

Fabbri was on pace and predicted to be as good as Nylander his first year he scored 18 goals as a 19 year old rookie and in 10 less games. he was hendered by his knee injury but i would say has the highest bust / ceiling differential in the league for 925k due to his knee. On top of that Blues do not Need UFA LHD, the notion that people keep putting around him, " oh you can sign him the following year", is personic, We could just sign him the following offseason, but we don't need him. As for nylander great player a little soft but great player. I am tired of hearing about potential if nylander is 30 goal 70 poiny player then parayko is 15 goal 60 point dman, right.

Any way if you take into accoutn team needs. Capp issues, Cam contract control Blues are better of the way they are and that is not Bias that's the truth.

30 Jul 2018 23:38:30
Value is there but blues have no reason to trade Parayko when their forward core included ROR, Tarasenko, Schwartz, steen, Bozak, Schenn and have guys like kyrou and Thompson ready to make the jump to the NHL. Like i said value is there but the motivation or need isn’t there.

30 Jul 2018 23:56:04
For the record, because people always seem to read-to-respond instead of read-to-understand.
I said I believe Fabbri has more value than Gardiner straight up. Just value wise with all things considered as redwing pointed out.

30 Jul 2018 23:57:35
For some reason., I think at the end of all there careers. Nylander maybe the best outta him Mathews and Marner. you have Tavares., so shop the American. and get a good ridiculous return, then the Leafs will win a cup. .
Go get OEL.

31 Jul 2018 01:13:23
Mathews is much better then Tavares and it’s not even close Mathews is better offensively and defensively Mathews is miles better he makes Tavares look like a PeeWee player in comparison Mathews is the best defensive forward sense Bergeron. Also Tavares has played for 7 more season and still hasn’t eclipsed Mathews totals. Mathews is atleast two tiers better.

31 Jul 2018 05:35:36
Mathews isn't as good as Tavares. VB. he may be down the road., but not at this point in his career. Ya he had a better goal scoring season. so what. Ovechkin gets more than anyone, however there are a couple dozen players in league better than him.
So get rid of the American, send him to Phoenix, get OEL and some pieces. Mathews is a hot commodity. m so get a complete team and win a cup.
Leafs went win with what they have now. Tampa is still the Superior team.

31 Jul 2018 06:17:24
Ovechkin is a winger, not great defensively huge difference. Please tell me how Tavares>Mathews teach me your expertise because apparently you know more then every TSN panellist and ALMOST every hockey writer.

31 Jul 2018 06:41:35
Lol. well some of em are pretty dumb. tsn guys.

Anyway. when Mathews can sustain a few years of being a star, and make others arounf him better, like Tavares, I will concede he may be the better player. however. he's not there yet. I'm jus saying, no way these guys are in same level as Tampa, close. but why not get there.

31 Jul 2018 13:50:22
Lol that’s like the 3rd time in the last cpl weeks a habs fan has said leafs should trade Matthews and sound serious. It’s funny because a true #1 centre is a Unicorn to you guys and we have 2. Stop the jealousy, worry about fixing the train wreck in Montreal instead of trying to justify us trading a 20 year old point per game centre, with size, a 200 ft game, lethal goal scorer, good faceoffs and great chemistry with his teammates lol absolutely no point to move that guy. Oilers should trade Mcdavid for D help because I Believe draisatl will have better numbers after 15 years, see how dumb that is?

31 Jul 2018 14:14:04
Leafs will not trade Mathews.

31 Jul 2018 13:54:50
Nylander is arguably the 6th best player on the leafs. Just because he’s better than your best in Montreal doesn’t mean he’s going to have a better career than a Matthews or Marner lol

1) Matthews
2) Tavares
3) Marner
Rielly/ Nylander/ Kadri (any order of these Guys at 4, 5 and 6 could be argued)

31 Jul 2018 17:59:21
And that’s just skaters, doesn’t factor in Freddy Andersen who was 4th in Vezina voting.

31 Jul 2018 21:08:48
Ya really think I'm jealous Jim? I was stating my opinion on the 3 Kids. I feel Nylander could be the better of em. fine trade him.
I would love to see the Leafs win a cup., all I have been trying to say is I don't think they have the team yet to do it. So, with 2 number one centers. both Franchise guys. why not sell one of em for top $. you could get a Stud Dman. and maybe even have a dynasty.

Leafs are close. but I feel they need more D.
As for my team. ya it's a wreck. It reminds me of the Leafs of the 80s, is what it is. Until the philosophy of having to have French Canadian coaches and GMs is put to rest and just have the best man for the job. will be for years to come.

31 Jul 2018 23:03:16
Look at the last few cups. Crosby/ Malkin twice and backstrom/ kuznetsov. You’re right Sosa, 2 top centres is not the path to success. It was Ron Hainsey and Justin Schultz playing top pair that won the cup for the penguins in 2016, I forgot.

31 Jul 2018 23:29:56
And You just said you’re sick of the habs only wanting French people on the organization, then why keep referring to Auston Matthews as ‘the amerocan’?! Because I don’t care where a guy is born or what jersey he wears internationally, as long as he pours his heart out for the leafs from October to June. Just seems pretty hypocritical. .

01 Aug 2018 00:43:28
The leafs trading Mathews would be like the Canadians trading a 20 year old Jean Béliveau except Mathews will probably be the more dominant player ( hard to compare but you get the stupidity in your comment ) Mathews is already the greatest player to wear a leafs jersey.

01 Aug 2018 02:26:35
Ok. really don't want to deal with Biased Goof and Virgin Balls.
You boys win. . lol. good luck! . really hope you win a cup.
Ummm Jim Crosby and Malkin. better than both your centers. so was there damn goalie. And depth players.
Vb. your jus a kid. so ya get a pass. But. Big Jean schooled your team for years. so until you win.
Shut up. lol.

01 Aug 2018 05:02:18
Jim is biased that's a given but vbbbvvbb is taking it to the next level lately. Matthews after 2 seasons of not getting out of the 1st round of the playoffs is already the best player in franchise history lol. what does that say about everyone else that ever donned the leafs jersey? it wasn't that long ago the leafs had a guy named doug gilmour who done much more and played better, harder and better defensively then matthews has played up to this point. But that was in the 90s vbbbvvbb you probably weren't born then. With regards to beliveau we are not exactly at the point yet where you should be comparing matthews to a hall of fame legend. cause guess what. if Matthews retired tomorrow he wouldn't get into the hall.

01 Aug 2018 05:07:26
It was a friendly argument and you clearly lost after insulting us. But anyway cheers. Béliveau was an all time great but I believe Mathews will be in the same tier. Béliveau was 2nd to Howe. Mathews is 2nd to McDavid for this current generation.

01 Aug 2018 06:59:33
C’mon habby. That’s the 2nd time you’ve mentioned “Matthews” not getting out of the 1st round. I believe it’s a team sport. “McDavid” didn’t even make the playoffs, he must be a bag of sh*t then? The hell with both of them, I’d rather Tom Wilson, he won the cup.

01 Aug 2018 14:14:16
I know that leafs 17 but my point was hold off on the beliveau comparison until he gets out of the first round lol.

01 Aug 2018 15:47:05
Yah I was born in 2001 so unfortunately I haven’t seen Dougie G play but I do agree with what you’re saying to be able to Compare the 3 Mathews has to play 10+ more seasons my point is the notion of trading Mathews is personic.

@Habby.

01 Aug 2018 16:11:27
@Habby, saying ‘trading Matthews is dumb’is me being biased? Lol 😂 and saying he’s more valuable at 20 than Tavares at 27 or marner at 20 is biased?! They’re all leafs lol. All I said is don’t trade a 20 year old star Centerman and that habs fans shouldn't be trying to fix the leafs by doing so. That’s not biased. That’s common sense.

And Sosa, I never said Matthews and JT were better than Malkin/ Crosby. Or backstrom/ kuznetsov. Never said that at all. READ! Lol I said great centre depth has won the last 3 cups. It’s a fact, you can look that up to if you can sound out the words.

I could only imagine your response if you had 2 great players at the most important position in their prime and a leaf fan told you it’s a mistake to keep them both lol.

01 Aug 2018 17:51:47
No jim I had considered you biased long before this post lol.

01 Aug 2018 21:17:15
You think I’m biased because I told you you overvalue paccioretty and after months of actively shopping him, habs haven’t been able to find someone to give them good value. Again, that’s just looking at the reality of a situation.

01 Aug 2018 21:43:41
It’s not biased to point out that currently, contracts situations and all, there’s not a single skater on the Habs that could be traded 1-for-1 for our top 6 skaters. Anyone with common sense when it comes to hockey would see that habs best 3 players are Weber, patches and Drouin. None of those straight up gets you Nylander, Kadri or Rielly 4/ 5/ 6 as I said above.

And I know the whole TSN Toronto sports network complainers will come out soon, how it’s all media driven and that, but TSN doesn’t own Bodog, TSN doesn’t influence Vegas betting odds. Vegas betting odds are far from a guarantee how things will shake out, but it shows it’s far from just us ‘biased leaf fans’ that know how good this team is.

Jim why can't you admit you are biased? I'm biased see it isn't that hard. Everyone on here value their teams players a little more then they are worth, you included. Maybe you are not as bad as some but your still biased.

02 Aug 2018 13:08:30
I like almost every leaf player because I watch them more and get to know them a bit. But I like a handful of players of almost every team in the league, all based on merit. I’ve criticized complete organizations before when they’re a screw up and it’s not biased to see those teams making brutal decisions on a monthly basis. I’ve never changed my opinion on a player because he changes address (like saying Kerry Rychel of the marlies is a bust one week, and a possible good 3rd liner 10 days later when he’s traded to the habs Lol or giving me a hard time for saying galchenyuk wasn’t very good and then he hadn’t even tried on his coyotes jersey yet and you called him spare parts and said how habs easily won the trade for domi even though every stat and number says otherwise lol

Tell me when I’ve ever changed my opinion of a player based on the jersey they wear? Because that’s what shows team bias. I didn’t like PK subban as a hab, don’t loke him as a Pred. Loved Shea Weber as a pred, don’t love him being a hab because he’s great, but don’t think less of him. Only ever criticized his contract which was equally bad in any city. And you never read me criticizing JT or Freddy Andersen or aPatrick Marleau before we acquired them, because I think the same about them now as I dod before, just happy they play here.

And as always when your questioned about being biased you create BS stories about what other people said to make them seem more bias then you lol. Your awesome man.

02 Aug 2018 16:32:54
It’s not BS. Colt said the Kerby Rychel thug and you defended him when I questioned him on it. And he galchenyuk one was between you and I right after he was traded. Not that long ago. Maybe it’s my young memory.

03 Aug 2018 00:03:10
It's called selective memory I think.

WPG: Kulikov, Lipon
PHI: Goulbourne

Agree2 Disagree12

30 Jul 2018 15:42:16
The Jets have Vesalainen, Lemieux and Suess who are younger and have same or more upside than Goulbourne so I can't see them making this trade unless they are trying to dump Kulikov's salary.

30 Jul 2018 19:05:07
But why would they dump Kulikovs contract?! Last week Kulikov was better than Morgan Rielly, Jake Gardiner and Nikita Zaitsev lol.

Blue jackets trade: Panarin

Blues trade: Fabbri, 1st round pick 2019, 2nd round pick 2019, 4th round pick 2020

Agree8 Disagree10

29 Jul 2018 21:48:11
All depends on Fabbri staying healthy, but if he does, this is a really good return for a guy that has Kinda made it clear he doesn’t want to be there after this year anyway.

30 Jul 2018 01:15:36
Yea could be other pieces added for sure but think of the blues lines.

Panarin oreilly tarasenko
Schwartz Schenn Perron
Maroon Bozak steen.

30 Jul 2018 15:00:45
I think CBJ could get better than this, but would have to be perfect situation. This is if they are 100% he isn’t staying and need to recoup some assets. Better to get a young player that’s more of a guarantee to be impactful and a pick because jackets are ready to compete too.
