Minor-ish Trade:

Valeri Nichushkin (RW - Rights) to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Calvin Pickard (G - RFA) + 2019 3rd Round Draft Selection.

- Nichushkin has played the past two years in the KHL with results of appx. 0.5 PPG. He was the former 10th Overall Pick in 2013, but underwent major struggles, and currently performed to average standard in the KHL. Considering Kari Lehtonen to be gone as an Unrestricted Free Agent, Dallas could use a suitable, cheap backup goalie, I was debating either Sparks or Pickard, but I feel Dallas would lean towards Pickard due to his experience. He could shoulder some of Ben Bishop's load as a goalie. As for Nichushkin in Toronto, he could take JVR's role as the LW on the 2/ 3 line, and could be a 30-40 point man, if he plays with good linemates. And, since he's 6'4, he may be able to take JVR's role on the PP. It's a gamble for Toronto, and a safe play for Dallas imo.

Ok people these Erik karlsson rumors are getting old, tiresome and really annoying real fast. I've litterally seen 1 maybe 2 options that make any sense in a karlsson trade and y'all seem to think they are somehow over payments when they're NOT!

So let me put this into perspective for you all to see.

Turris went to Nashville, then everything the sens got for turris was packaged with a 1st next season, Hammond, and Shane bowers for Duchene who is not much better than turris to begin with. turris like Duchene is a former 3rd overall pick who's 1 year older than Duchene, bowers also a former 1st round pick.

So basically Duchene got them a 3rd overall, a mid 1st rounder, and an unknown 1st that could be better than 3rd overall plus a backup goalie who's shown flashes of brilliance between the pipes.

Given the fact that EK is twice the player that Duchene is and is roughly the same age plus is a more coveted position as defensemen of that caliber are much tougher to find than forwards that means that EK would demand a minimum of a return worth double the return that Colorado got for Duchene.

AND that's NOT being biased towards ottawa like I know a few of you will moan about, that's just stating facts. While Duchene might be a top 50 or 100 player in the league today he still falls quite a bit short of EK who is easily top 3 in the world along side the likes of mcdavid and dare I say cry baby Crosby and there for would warrentvone of the biggest return packages you'll ever see.

Agree3 Disagree8

16 May 2018 20:29:08
Dont know what triggered Rambo. but i haven't seen an EK post on this site in a long time.

16 May 2018 21:06:59
Lmao. Haven't seen an EK post for a while now. Wtf.
I'm not even reading your whole post, got through the first line.

16 May 2018 20:59:15
Turris was traded separately for a 2nd round pick.

17 May 2018 01:37:42
Nah, lmao. Duchene was never worth that, the entire hockey world knew that. Ottawa paid a heft sum to barely upgrade from Turris.

Duchenes value had plummeted. Everyone was surprised that Sakic actually got what he desired. Ottawa GM simply overpaid. EK, if traded will get a lot, but won't get like all of an elite young player, a first, an A+ prospect plus.

17 May 2018 02:09:13
Turris is equal to third overall than I guess Yakupov is worth first overall. You act like the nonsense you say is scientific. Lol EK’s value is exactly twice as much as Duchene’s?

17 May 2018 12:57:37
Ya Duchene was an overpayment from day one the hockey world was shocked OTT gave up that much. And he has term that Karlsson doesn't EK has 1 year left. If he's traded hell get a ton, more than most would probably be happy about giving but he's not getting what you think.

17 May 2018 21:30:34
Just because Ottawa paid that for Duchene and Karlsson is twice the player that Duchene is doesn’t mean squat lol oilers traded 2 picks to the islanders for griffin Reinhart. One became Barzal and I believe the other was beavillier. And darnel nurse is twice good as Reinhart, so nurse is worth 2 Barzals and 2 beauvilliers?! Hahaha no!

Oilers made a terrible trade for Reinhart and the world knows it. That doesn’t affect value beyond that trade. Sens over paid for Duchene, people can clearly see that and it’s in the past.

18 May 2018 03:51:23
Turris was drafted 3rd overall in his draft year oh brilliant one do the research if you don't agree.

and vbbvbb turris was traded to Nashville for prospects Samuel Girard, Vladislav Kamenev and a 2018 second-round draft pick which were all flipped to Colorado along with bowers Hammond a 1st and a 3rd for Duchene making Duchene value in that trade equal to the full value of turris plus a 1st 3rd Hammond and bowers. do your research.

AND EK will demand at least twice that despite what other fools might argue based on the bias against the sens!

EK either stays or he doubles that return or sens get gipped again which will not happen because Dorian knows if it does espessially with EK stone Duchene or Hoffman then the fans will be calling for his head guarenteed.

18 May 2018 11:22:25
EK to San Jose for Dillon, Boedker, Dell, 2nd confirmed.

18 May 2018 14:20:05
Lmfao ummm no!

13 May 2018 21:49:30
what could montreal trade to get a pick in the 11th- 14th range

Unavailable players are
3OVA unavailable

BTW guys no point of trading pacioretty for the 14th pick per ex because its going to take way more than that. Stop underrating teams players because there is literally no point to it since this isn't real life.

Agree0 Disagree7

13 May 2018 23:07:35
Dallas and Saint Louis could probably use Max Pac. I think you underrate his value anyway those are all of Montreal’s valuable assets you won’t get much.

14 May 2018 18:07:44
Vbbbvvbb- with all do respect.

The blues have like 15 lwers on the team. The blues only needs are a legit 1c/ 2c center or a 2nd line rw that can score. Lw is the teams strongest position. Unless Montreal is taking back Steen, Berglund Ect this just isn't happening.

On top of all that Blues will not be trading Robert Thomas, Jordany Kyrou, Klim Kostin, Vince Dunn, Robby Fabbri, ect. I could see tage thompson, but he is a c/ rw so probably not.

Teams Left Wingers

Some of those guys can play center but for blues to get Patches a guy making 3-5 has to go back. With out our top 6 prospects going other way. that's why there won't be a deal between the two teams.

15 May 2018 01:39:20
I feel like Habs would take back Steen. with that being said I forgot Philly now owns the 14th pick. So that idea is invalid.

15 May 2018 02:19:58
youre list of unavailable assets includes anything of value that habs might have. did i just say scherbak, danault, chucky have vaue? laff. so there's nothing you can trade to get a pick 11 to 14 because you won't give up value. patches might get you a decent return, but believe you me, itll be less than kessels return.

15 May 2018 03:26:06
Zadina you clear i denial patch is a ufa next year is thirdy years old and is showing clear sign of slowing down he get a first between 31 and 24 i vaule paul statsney over patch
And he got a 28 pick and evander kane got a second teams are looking for youth and speed that not patch he not a first line player anymore get it throw your fat head.

15 May 2018 10:31:26
Redwings/ colt55 Armstrong might say ok I want a good 30+ goal scorer and see that Patches is available and maybe try to work something out without giving up they're 2 best prospects, but still giving something of value. Maybe Jordan Kyrou and Alexander Steen for Max Pac.

16 May 2018 18:13:33
Fake colt. let's make somethingclear brah. You don't know what ou are talking about. Your post are horrible and you clearly don't represent the blues.

Now that is out of the way.

If you were a fan of the blues. DA has on many occasions said he isn't trading his top prospects for a 1 year rental. He sees the blues window happening in the next few years and not now.

Jordan Kyrou was the OHL player of the Year. Only playe with 2ppg% and had most points with 10 fewer games than next guy

Robert Thomas Was the OHL Gretzky Award winner for MVP in playoffs. Hamilton Coach stated that he will be said to see him go since he is NHL bound.

Tage Thompson was a 20 year old rookie playing 2/ 3rw duties and improving every game.

Klim Kostin is an 18 Playing in the AHL, since blues were not the teams current runner of team he got limited minutes and still put up 6 goals and 22 a that's 28 pts in 60 games with limited ice time is 6'3 215.

Dunn- had awesome rookie year. played top 4 role and was good on power play as a rookie.

Fabbri top 6 forward at age 19. Had two bad hits were his knee got injured. Trade value is low better reward to him returning to form than selling. low.

This draft is heavy with first rnd pick quality players going deep into second round.

But yeah we should trade all these ELC young studs for 1 year of a guy that came off a 17 goals season. Sounds about right especially since blues are not contenders.

Its sad that you only chose to use colt65 as an insult/ compliement to the original. LOL have a great day.

16 May 2018 21:03:46
Fabbri for Patch isn’t a bad trade.

17 May 2018 00:45:13
I'm not willing to chance fabbri speed for him.

12 May 2018 05:16:10
Montreal: 3rd overall
Nashville : Subban

Agree0 Disagree7

13 May 2018 19:33:24
Why would Nashville consider this?

13 May 2018 20:00:32
Great trade. Helps both teams. 😂.

13 May 2018 19:48:27
No thanks.

13 May 2018 21:24:29
There's already rumor that Subban isn't liked in the dressing room again. He was in talks with that Duchene trade. This is right from Elliote Friedman. Not me.
There is rumor he could very well be traded, again.

My proposed trade was a troll tho.

13 May 2018 22:20:58
Rather have 18 year old Zadina then 29 year old Subban. Rather have 29 year old Subban over 33 year old Weber though.

13 May 2018 23:08:42
I’ll take Subban over Zandina on the leafs.

15 May 2018 00:09:54
VBB would you trade Nylander for Subban?

15 May 2018 01:40:35
Yah I would honestly Subban is Elite.

15 May 2018 01:42:37
Also I’ll take Zandina over Nylander.

11 May 2018 21:31:53
Honestly I have no clue if any team would be willing to trade they're first rd in this draft for Patches. Maybe after pick 23 but then its an underpayment because most players picked after that are a big gamble

Agree0 Disagree6

11 May 2018 22:14:02
As a leafs fan I’d give Andreas Johnson and the 23rd overall pick for patches. Imo that’s a decent offer depending on if you value Johnson as much as I do.

13 May 2018 22:10:18
If Leafs offer that I think mtl tries to squeze a little mor ebut ends up taking it. Good offer for once VB.

10 May 2018 21:12:00
brady tkachuk going to be a bust he's the oldest player in the draft didn't really do good in usl and avg ncca stats played good in world j but he should conserding his says and age i don't know how his pick at 5 i would rank him 10 15

He bight be a good 3 4 line winger what has gritt anyone agree

Agree5 Disagree3

11 May 2018 11:13:08
I agree that he won't be a top line 70+ point winger like his brother might become and I agree that he's far away from his brother in terms of talent but his offensive production will still be at least 55+ point in the NHL and it will happen very quickly just like his brother because he has the body of a beast and plays like one. he's a bigger and better version of Brandan Gallagher. don't tell me you wouldn't want that on your team. Third / fourth line guy? Really? Nah.

11 May 2018 22:21:09
proffesional scouts who get payed 100’s of thousands of dollars a year to scout out players and find the best ones have him to be a projected to be a top line winger and have him as the 4th ranked prospect. I’m pretty sure their opinions out weigh yours. What has you qualified to say this? I’d love to have him on the leafs I’d instently put him on the top line with Mathews and I’d give up Nylander to get him. Imo and many other experts opinions believe he’ll be better then his brother.

12 May 2018 01:42:44
Because scouts are never wrong. Not saying he's right but yakupov was a consensus top pick by scouts.

12 May 2018 07:21:17
I think he's going pan out brett lindros and marcell hossa.

12 May 2018 16:58:17
The Black Apaca you’re right you should write the draft order I bet the GMs of the NHL would love your opinion. Because obviously you knew Yakapov was going to be a bust when he was dominating the OHL while skating faster with a better shot then anyone else. Scouts believed the hockey sense would come with him as he matured and underestimated the lack of. He has all the tools to be elite but just no hockey sense.

12 May 2018 17:27:16
I never said I thought yakupov would be a bust. I was pointing out that these scouts can be wrong about players. You're awfully defensive about this.

13 May 2018 19:35:33
I’m just saying give the kid a chance he has all the tools to be a great player.

14 May 2018 12:20:59
I think he could be a really great player as long as mtl don't draft him at #3.

08 May 2018 12:06:29
So the Craps finally beatt the Pens.. however, lots are going to say Ovechkin beat Crosby
For me , it's not even close...the comparison of the 2.. If there was a Mount Rushmore of Hockey, Crosby is sitting there with with Gretzky, Orr, Lemuiex,Richard and Howe.. soon to be joined by McDavid.
Yes.. I'm a hater.. .. of Ovechkin.. in my 35+ years of watching hockey., he is .maybe the most over rated ' so called superstar since Brett Hull.
The guy is so one dimensional, ya ok.m good goal scorer, but does he evet dominate.. I don't think so.. unless ... Backstrom hooks him ups

Al I'm saying, is realize.. it was the Caps who beat Crosby... not Ovechkin.. Even if the Overated 8 was to win a Cup... it's st Ill it even close.......Crosby is 10 times the player that Overated guy is

Pens number 2 center is bettet than Ovi

Agree1 Disagree11

08 May 2018 16:18:32
Wouldn’t say he’s 10X better that’s a little extreme.

08 May 2018 21:18:12
Ovie can do the all star skating competition in 14 seconds if Crosby was 10x faster he’d be able to skate around the rink in 1.4 seconds

If his shoot was 10x harder he’d be able to shot 1060 MPH

If he’s 10x better he should put up 10x the points so Crosby should’ve put up 480 G 380A 870P this season

I think you guys underate the multiplication factor of 10 Crosby is better but not 10x better or even 2x better.

08 May 2018 22:52:13
I wouldn’t say Ovechkin is really that overrated, he is one of if not the greatest goal scorer of all time. While he’s not a complete player (although he has become more of one as he gets older), almost no one can pile the goals in every season like him.

09 May 2018 04:10:36
Take it easy vbbbb’s, it was just an expression people use when making comparisons.

09 May 2018 14:29:30
I think it’s funny how when the caps lost to the penguins all those years, the narrative was always ovie let the team down, he’s not a good leader, he underperformed (when his numbers didn’t say that at all), Crosby beat ovie again etc. Now that they finally slay the dragon and beat Crosby and the penguins, it has nothing to do with ovie over Crosby, it’s a team game lol I believe it’s a team game and it’s not one player over another, but for the last decade it’s been okay to say it was Crosby over ovechkin, now that it’s the other way for once we are all supposed to jump to poor Sidney’s defence. They lost, he lost. Deal with it. Ovie and the caps were better than Crosby and the penguins this time. No reason to hate either. They’re both great just very different. Saying ovechkin isn’t a superstar makes me wonder what you have been watching for the last 35 years. The guy is catching scoring milestones that guys made when there were 10-12 goals scored in every game in the 80s and 90s. He’s leaving hall of famers that played in an era that was far easier to score in his rear view. Get over yourself and your Canadian player only bias. Ovie plays like more of a Canadian than 90% of Canadians in the league today and if he was born in Montreal or Toronto and BC people would love him over Crosby.

09 May 2018 14:49:34
Lmao at the 10x response VB. That's hilarious. You took it so literal.

10 May 2018 00:50:24
numbers don't lie, how can he be overrated? if he was born in canada he would be loved. he's the best winger in the league in terms of all around play. guy backchecks and plays a good style game, hits, great stick, great speed, how can you hate this guy? oh because he's russian. hate on brett hull all you want, dude scored a tonne. but can't hold ovies skates

crosby is great, but is a little girl compared to ovie. you should compare them, they're totally different players. compare ovie to forsberg or lindros or mario, but not crosby or gretz.

10 May 2018 10:36:05
Can’t really compare Ovie to Lindros or Mario. Forsburg is good tho.

10 May 2018 20:10:55
Can't really compare Ovi to anyone. He's a pure sniper. One of the best one dimensional goal scorers of all time.
His goal scoring abilities are better than Crosbys. But Crosbys all around two way game, Offensive and defensive. Power play and penalty kill abilities Etc etc etc are better than Ovi. Hard to compare those two to anyone really.

10 May 2018 21:22:11
Ovie to Liane is a great comparison imo. But I guess Laine is unproven.

10 May 2018 23:20:23
Ovi had the work 10 times harder to get where he is today then Crosby. Grew up with barely nothing had to scrap stuff to pay for hockey and practice every night and day to become the player he is. Crosby was just given this "gift" and had wealthy parents they knew he eas going to be a star so of course he was treated as such and was able to become also the player he is. don't grt me wrong I like Crosby but he doesn't have that passion for the game like Ovi does.

Of course Ovi is worthless because he's a Russian tho. Wow can't believe you say he's overrated and not a superstar. he's going to play in this league longer then Crosby, because when he's one the ice nobody dares to hurt or even come close to him so he doesn't get hurt. Corsby gets hurt on a regular basis so again in 2-3 years when Crosby is retired and Ovi is still getting 40+ goals and 70+ points you tell me he's not a start okay?

11 May 2018 00:02:02
Yes I agree you could now compare Laine to Ovi. But hard to find someone to compare Ovi to. I think he stands alone for what he brings.

Wtf are you talking about Colt. Crosby is better than Ovi because he has a better ALL AROUND HOCKEY TALENT, not because of the way they were brought up. Wtf.
And no one said Ovi isn't a superstar. He most definitely is a legit NHL superstar. He's not overrated. He's the best pure goal scorer in the game. Maybe ever.

11 May 2018 00:46:00
Crosby a lil winging baby i would love to see ovi drop the gloves with him.

11 May 2018 16:39:33
Actually yup, Sosa said Ovi wasn't a superstar. Twice actually.

11 May 2018 22:25:41
Did you really just say Crosby dosent have the passion for the game? Ovie is litterly out of shape he has a beer gut and dosent train in the offseason. Crosby is a weirdo he eat, sleeps and dreams hockey to the point that it’d strange. Crosby trains/ try’s much harder then Ovie.

11 May 2018 23:06:57
2 things:
1) Crosby will play much more than 2-3 years. He’s played 75+ games in the past 5 season not including playoffs.
2) Just because someone grew up with more advantages and more natural talent doesn’t mean that Crosby didn’t put in just as much work as Ovechkin. You don’t think Crosby was out there everyday practicing to become the best player in the world? The last thing you should question about Crosby is his passion for the game.

07 May 2018 09:02:29
So what's the latest going in with Austin Mathews and coach Babcock?
Reading and hearing lots of different things. That clash has lost trust in him. Didn't start him on any power plays in the playoffs. Didn't even have him out to start any games or periods ever. Babcock was in Arizona the last few days to try and patch things over with Mathews even.

Agree4 Disagree0

07 May 2018 14:27:25
Maybe Toronto should trade him for Larson, Hopkins and Pul lol.

07 May 2018 15:47:22
HAHAHAHA. You're soooooooooo funny Colt.

08 May 2018 10:37:56
Mathews is probably just disappointed the leafs are out of the playoffs. It is known Babcock is hard on his star player IE Datsyuk and Zetterberg. He’ll get over it.

08 May 2018 20:09:53
What? Did you read the post. These issues their trying to resolve were going on DURING the playoffs.
Not because they are now out of the playoffs.

08 May 2018 21:21:15
Yah I know but he’s probably taking the reason they are out of the playoffs and putting it on Babcock I’ve read the articles we can only speculate. Obviously this won’t cause a trade or a coaching change. Like I’ve said same thing happened with Zetterberg and Datsyuk.

05 May 2018 06:17:20
So Habs have 3rd.. atm.. looks like this Zadina character.. can anyone tell me much aboit him.. I don't follow much of the kids..
What's he about.?? And..who would you compare him to??

Agree0 Disagree0

05 May 2018 13:22:22
I’d compare him to David Pasternak ( The 1st line winger on Boston excuse my spelling ) he’s a speedy shoot first winger, great hands and good playmaking ability that’s shadowed by his scoring touch much like Phil Kessel. Personally I think Carolina will take him at number two as a surprise. I think he’ll be a better player ther Svechnikov. Now if Montreal gets Svechnikov I’d compare him to Blake Wheeler. He’s a strong big bodied player who is a great skater for his size with a nice scoring ability . As a prospect he reminds me of Jesse Puljiravi ( EDM excuse spelling) but with more of a scoring touch.

05 May 2018 14:30:59
Svechinikov is supposed to be better than Zadina but there's rumor out there that Canes could take Zadina because he's from the same place as their first round selection last year - Martin Necas and they are good friends and played very well together world juniors. So we'll see. Both are projected top line wingers. Some even throw "elite" in their scouting reports for both them.

05 May 2018 19:05:07
I’ve read that if Svech was in 2017, he wouldve gone before Hischier. I think Zadina is much the same.

Both sre not as NHL ready as Dahlin or Brady Tkachuk, but they have the potential to be much better than the likes of Tkachuk.

07 May 2018 14:21:53
In terms of style of play he's been compared to laine. but that's not to say he's at the same level talent wise.

09 May 2018 20:42:22
He doesn’t have the size to be as powerful as laine, but should be a good goal scoring winger. I’ve seen Svechnikov play a lot because I have season tickets in Barrie. He’s really good, but when I hear some of these comparisons and expectations, I don’t see him living up to them. But could be wrong. I have seen some star players play for barrie and a lot of them less hyped than him struck me as better.

10 May 2018 10:37:58
Exactly what I was thinking @unbiasedJim.

05 May 2018 00:02:31
So according to NoBias, sens cam get Hoffman + Duchesne for JT Barzal and Bailey

So here's what Ott really gets
- 11th overall
- Beauviller
