A couple of Oilers trades:

1.

Max Pacioretty + Brendan Gallagher to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins + Ryan Strome + 2018 1st Round Draft Pick (lottery protected for 2018; non-lottery protected for 2019) + 2019 2nd Round Pick.
__

Patches and Gallagher immediately become two of the best wingers on Edmonton. Drais can move back to centre, and the Oil can finally have spread-out offence.

As for Montreal, they get a 1st, which is a nice asset (in terms of future, and in terms of trade bait if need be), and RNH, who could be a nice first line centre, but if Montreal starts to fall back, then he can be a valuable trading asset come the deadline.

2.

Kris Russell + Kailer Yamamoto to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Travis Sanheim + Scott Laughton.

Philadelphia then sends Kris Russell (25% Retention) to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Cody Franson and a 2018 2nd Round Pick.


___

This one probably won't sit well with Oil fans, and makes sense why. Yamamoto is promising, and has shown that he can possible be a good NHLer. However, I check nhl. com, and I saw that Edmonton's leading scorer for blueliners is Oscar Klefbom, with six point - and a minus ten rating, Yes, Sekera is out, but really, is he going to be that offensive blueliner? In my opinion, I don't see it that way. Sanheim is a quality blueliner, who, in the future, can be a nice offensive dman. Klefbom is more two-way, Adam Larsson is defensive, Darnell Nurse is defensive, Sekera is middling, and aging, and idk about Benning, but from his stats, he doesn't look like an offensive blueliner. Kris Russell is defensive, but with Nurse and Larsson being younger and most likely better, Russell can be expandable. Plus, with another blueline coming in, someone needs to be dropped.

___

Lineup:

Patrick Maroon - Connor McDavid - Brendan Gallagher
Max Pacioretty - Leon Draisaitl - Drake Caggiula
Milan Lucic - Mark Letestu - Michael Cammalleri
Jujhar Khaira - Scott Laughton - Zach Kassian

Oscar Klefbom - Adam Larsson
Travis Sanheim - Darnell Nurse
Matt Benning - Eric Gryba/ **Andrej Sekera

Cam Talbot
Laurent Brossoit

Yeah, its not ideal. But when you have only 50 goals through 20 games, somethings got to change. that's 30 goals behind Toronto, on 2 fewer games. I still believe that Edmonton has a better nucleus than Toronto, but the scoring needs to be there. And as much as many wouldn't want it, change needs to happen, cause Mike Cammalleri ain't going to magically score 20 goals.

And all four teams mentioned (Philly, Chicago, Montreal and Edmonton) need some sort of change. And this could help.

22 Nov 2017 08:50:38
You put a lot of thought into it and i like it but i don't think oilers will give up yamamoto for that when he's proved more than sanheim in such a short period. I would dangle yamamoto to carolina to pry one of their of defencemen as they are looking for forwards. Also maybe coyotes could be an ideal trading partner if oilers want wingers i'm sure they could pry Dulair or Reider out for a good price. Good post man

22 Nov 2017 15:07:01
They aren't trading Yamamoto for that. Lol.

22 Nov 2017 16:04:33
Nurse doesn't play the right side. Benning doesn't play the left side. Letestu isn't good enough for full time third line center. He's good for a few games fill in, but he's great at his full time fourth line center role with PP and PK time.

19 Nov 2017 15:23:33
Theoretical trades for Top 3 D-Man to Toronto:

Leafs trade
James Van Riemsdyk
Kasperi Kapanen

Ducks trade
Sami Vatanen
-------------------------
Leafs trade
William Nylander
Rinat Valiev
2018 1st

Hurricanes trade
Justin Faulk
-------------------------
Leafs trade
Mitch Marner
Nikita Zaitsev

Flyers trade
Ivan Provorov
--------------------------
Leafs trade
Mitch Marner

Flames trade
Dougie Hamilton

19 Nov 2017 17:42:39
you know faulk is 27 right? and you want the leafs to trade not just nylander, but a first as well?

19 Nov 2017 17:43:03
jesus i just looked at the other trades and its even worse LOL.

19 Nov 2017 18:04:29
Just terrible.

19 Nov 2017 19:32:47
Lol. These are entertaining.

20 Nov 2017 16:27:43
Ducks take this and run, but only when Kesler and Getzlaf are back. If they make a trade now, its going to be for a centerman.

21 Nov 2017 11:47:49
Mitch mar for dougie is ridiculously bad for Calgary, dougie is Calgary's best or second best dman, marner doesn't compare.

06 Nov 2017 18:23:59
After my failure of a trade proposal somebody mentioned a little switch that I thought didn't look bad. Would this work or still way off

PHI: Simmonds, STL 1st round pick

WPG: Trouba, 3rd round pick

Same reasons as before

Is Trouba's value pretty much normal a year after his little dilemma

06 Nov 2017 19:14:59
Winnipeg doesn't need simmonds. They want a left hand defencemen

06 Nov 2017 21:02:10
Nope. As I said the Jets won't be able to afford Simmonds after this contract is up and don't really need any wingers.

06 Nov 2017 21:08:48
Super young Simmonds that Winnypeg absolutely needs!

06 Nov 2017 23:18:39
Nope. Jets still won't be able to fit Simmonds' contract in when it is up and they don't really need more wingers.

06 Nov 2017 14:40:29
I look at what just went down with the Duchene trade and I look back at last years Hanzal trade. Two similar cases the Flyers have contract wise are Simmonds and Filppula. While age is a factor Simmonds is on a better contract than Duchene and isn't asking for a trade. Filppula is actually playing really good on pace to be better than Hanzal was. So basing off of history I've proposed these two deals

PHI Receives: Trouba, 1st round pick

WPG Receives: Simmonds, 3rd round pick

Philadelphia does this because Simmonds is a free agent in two years and will have to earn big money. With all the younger guys they'll have to pay, his contract might hurt them. They also only have one right handed d-man prospect and one right handed d-man on the team right now

Winnipeg does this because who knows how Trouba will be when it comes to an extensions after last time. Also, they are pretty stacked at defense and I see Simmonds fitting in their middle 6 easily

Trade 2

PHI Receives: 2nd round pick

LAK or CBJ Receives: Filppula 50% retained

Philly does for the sole purpose of getting something for a player I doubt they'll bring back. If he keeps producing the way he is either they might not want to trade him or he can possibly get more but I thought a second round pick was reasonable. Or is it too high? TBH I don't even know

LA or CBJ do it for pretty much the same reason. They both have a good goalie with a decent defense and should be looking to do good in the playoffs. LA might need him more with Carter injured but both teams add some center depth

Thoughts? Am I way off here?

06 Nov 2017 16:20:36
Switch the picks in the first trade. Defenseman have way more value than wingers.

06 Nov 2017 16:27:03
Yeah, you are waaaaay off. No, way two years of Simmonds gets you Trouba. Simmonds is a good player, but the Jets would be in the same position in two years having to pay him when they can't afford him. Not to mention a middle 6 player isn't going to get you a young 1-2D.

06 Nov 2017 18:11:09
I agree the first trade doesn’t work for jets, but I wouldn’t call Simmons a middle six player. 28, 29, 31, 32 goals over last 4 seasons. That’s a top line forward on almost any team, but I would accept top 6. But not middle six. Not a 2nd-3rd liner.

06 Nov 2017 18:15:20
Btw, what was Trouba's value when there were trade rumors about him.

07 Nov 2017 01:54:49
Probably should have thought of that Hall for Larsson trade before posting. Guess this was a swing and a miss. How bout the second trade though?

05 Nov 2017 12:55:21
Two HOCKEY trades, to shake up the currently 8-7 Leafs.

As seen by yesterdays game, I believe that Josh Leivo has more skill right now, and is a better player than Kapanen. However, due to Kappy's age, everyone values him highly. So.

TRADE 1:

Philadelphia Acquires: Kasperi Kapanen
Toronto Acquires: Samuel Morin

Straight-up hockey trade. Allows Philly to play a better winger than Michael Raffl/ Matt Read, etc. And Sam Morin isn't the biggest loss in the world - look at Phillys defence : Radko Gudas, Travis Sanheim, Ghost, Robert Hagg, Philipe Myers coming up, etc. For Toronto, they get a tough young dman who can help clear the front of the net better than Roman Polak or Nikita Zaitsev can. And again, Leivo, Andreas Johnsson, Grundstrom, Bracco, Brooks, we aren't losing that big of a piece when we trade Kapanen.

TRADE 2:

Winnipeg Acquires: Jake Gardiner and a 2018 3rd Round Draft Pick.
Toronto Acquires: Tyler Myers (10% Salary Retained)

Another swap of players, with a bit of retention for a draft pick. As much as I am one of the Toronto fans who liked Gardiner, man, is there really any more space for him? Morgan Rielly is literally the same player as him, just better and younger, Nikita Saitsev is signed long-term and places the same as him, Liljegren coming up plays the same as him, even Dermott does. Toronto needs a strong dman, and that's what Myers is. Big, strong guy who can help clear the front of the net and help the team defensively. As much as long Gardiner hurts, we still have Nikita Zaitsev and Morgan Rielly now, and Liljegren, Dermott, Rossn, etc. for the future. As for Winnipeg, they get a steady puckmoving defenceman that they could use, since Toby Enstrom really isn't it anymore. Byfuglien, Chiarot and Myers are all more defensive, and Josh Morrissey is the only real puck-mover. Adding a guy like Gards could help guys like Dmitry Kulikov, etc.

- If these go through before the Vegas game on Monday, heres what I'd wanna see the lines as (for the single Vegas game) .

Zach Hyman - Auston Matthews - Mitch Marner (Babcock showed he didn't like Ny's game style in the Blues game)
Josh Leivo - Nazem Kadri - Connor Brown
James van Riemsdyk - Patrick Marleau - William Nylander
Matt Martin - Tyler Bozak - Leo Komarov

Tyler Myers - Morgan Rielly
Samuel Morin - Nikita Zaitsev
Connor Carrick - Ron Hainsey

Frederik Andersen.

05 Nov 2017 14:05:32
Your team is young. the will have issue's from time to time but as they get older the will find ways to boucle back give it time.

05 Nov 2017 14:05:37
Yes, Leivo has more offensive potential than Kapanen but Babcock prefers players who play a complete game and therefore values Kapanen ahead of Leivo. Leivo has proven to lack defensive ability while Kapanen is known for playing a 200 ft game. Doing the trade with Leivo would also work.

05 Nov 2017 19:43:27
I think both teams not names Toronto say no.
Add a bit more tho and might make them say yes.

05 Nov 2017 23:26:59
@Hckyfntc

I get what you're saying, but atm, I think Kapanen has more value than Leivo, even tho they may pan out the same, just one being a bit more defensive. To get a guy like Sam Morin back will be worth it for a guy like Kappy tho.

@Yup

Honestly, I think the first ones pretty fair, just cause both Sam Morin and Kappy haven't cracked an NHL roster full time. Both have been tweeners, and their respective teams have a lot of depth in the positions their in. I do agree with the Myers deal, and adding more. Maybe bump the 3rd to a 2nd? idk.

05 Nov 2017 23:26:59

04 Nov 2017 20:27:59
I still think a deal could be made for Montreal to acquire the #1 French Canadian centre they desperately need. Not that the French part matters but the city loves it.

Giroux & a young defense prospect for Pacioretty & Galchenyuk?

Other pieces would need to be added but Philly has a lot of defenseman coming up and could use some wing depth IMO. Montreal needs a #1 center and young defense. It would have to be one of Philadelphia's defenseman lower on the list for this to be fair. Any ideas?

27 Oct 2017 18:22:31
PHI: Fleury, Neal retain 1mi

Vagas: Morin, Hart, Read, MacDonald, Elliot, 1st lottery protected, 3rd

27 Oct 2017 19:04:36
They aren't trying MAF. Especially to Philly. Lol.
MAF knew and was planning on being in Vegas well before last season even ended. His wife and kid had even gone out there to scope out schools and houses.
He's there for a while. Def won't agree to a trade to Philly of all places.

28 Oct 2017 19:04:23
Yeah, I believe fleury is committed to Vegas and the other way around. Also, when building a team through the draft and having lots of young players in bigger roles, the best thing to do is still have solid veteran goaltending. Eventually you will want a goalie in the core age group to grow with the group, but if every time a young player makes a mistake it ends up in the net, it's really hard to build confidence and get better. Much like panthers getting luongo wth all those young guys after a cpl years of markstrom having so much potential but not bailing them out. Fleury can be a leader and stabilizing force on a young growing team. That's worth more than what his return would be.

15 Oct 2017 18:39:17
PHI: Morin, Filppula, Weise, STL 1st round pick

MTL: Galchenyuk

Value wise I think this is very similar to the Schenn trade but the Flyers role is flipped

Philadelphia gets rid of a NHL ready d-man who speaks French which we all know Montreal likes. He's outgrown the AHL and due to lineup decisions and the amount of young defensemen we have he's wasting his time in the AHL. Filppula is a rental who could potentially be resigned. I believe he would be the second best center on Montreal behind Drouin. Don't believe he'll score as much as Drouin but he'll make up for a good chunk of that this year. I threw I Weise because he was great with Montreal so he could always go back there and do good. Not much risk there. And then the first round pick to make up the difference. Getting rid of two forwards and getting one back not only lessens the log jam but they get more talented

As for Montreal, they are getting rid of a guy who is performing to their expectations but who is still young and has potential. They'll be improving their defense. Not really smart to get rid of offense when they need it but they are getting a little bit of offense in return

Overall, I wouldn't want Philly to get rid of Morin since he's really different than their other young d-men. I also don't think Montreal should give up on Galchenyuk right away. But I wanted to take a crack at it anyways

15 Oct 2017 21:34:55
canadiens laugh.

15 Oct 2017 21:37:58
so basically 2 cap dumps and an ahl player and a low first delusional af.

15 Oct 2017 21:57:52
flyers received the best player on that schenn deal wtf is this shit.

16 Oct 2017 01:46:55
I love how you include “who speaks French” hahahahahahah.

16 Oct 2017 05:24:31
@MTL4LIFE I totally get you disagreeing with the proposal because everybody has their opinion. I've been wrong in the past, will be wrong in the future and could very well be wrong now. But I just feel the need to correct your reasoning. First off, I'm hoping you meant something else, but the Flyers did not receive the best player in the Schenn deal.

He is better than Lehtera and will most likely be better than the individual first round picks. Secondly Morin isn't an AHL player. He's NHL ready, everybody says it, look it up if you want. He's just blocked by the other young defensemen Philly has. You don't want him sitting in the press box thus the reason they sent him down. Saying he's an AHLer is like me calling Galchenyuk a 4th liner because he was on it last game. You were 100% correct about the first round pick.

IMO you were 50% correct about the other 2. Weise is a cap dump but the destination is key. The only place he did good in was Montreal. Maybe it's a team thing. But if you have no interest in taking a chance on him it's very understandable. As for Filppula I wouldn't call him a cap dump. I believe he got like 42 points last year. Would have got a couple more if he played every game.

For 5 mil, it could be an overpayment but far from a cap dump. Galchenyuk got 44 points last year (I think) but was on pace for 59, which is better but not exactly blowing Filppula out of the waters. Filppula also adds a two way game though. Besides, it's not like Chuky is lighting the lamp this year. 1 goal to Filppula's 3.

Not saying he's the worse player but just try not to use the term cap dump as loosely. Especially considering he has 1 year left and could be resigned for cheaper. But everybody has their opinion so I'll leave it at that.

16 Oct 2017 00:11:08
Mtl4life how did the flyers get the best player in the schenn trade? Please, elaborate. i don't know why montreals so offended from this offer, galchenyuk isn't worth a 1st alone.

16 Oct 2017 06:35:59
MTL4LIFE was just owned.
Nice one Flyers2893. That was great.

16 Oct 2017 13:27:11
got his ass whooped there LOL

Not a bad trade, if the habs believe that morin can become a good d for them then it would be worth it, filp is a good player who as you said is a rental, so that 5 mil won't be a problem, weise was great for the habs, if they want to take a chance on a guy i say he'd be the one. AND a first, just saw that. yeah this is definitely a fair deal. Good going Flyers!

15 Oct 2017 14:41:11
IF Jankowski proves himself to be a capable NHL player:

S. Bennett for W. Allison + Condtional 2nd 2018

If Flyers make the 2017-18 playoffs the picks is a 2nd. If not then it is a 3rd

*Wade Allison is RW prospect drafted by the Flyers in 2016

26 Jul 2017 12:15:53
I saw this on Broad Street Hockey while discussing if Simmonds contract and Flyers development is out of sync and the possibility of trading him. Simmonds is a great leader, possesses many intangibles, and is a decent goal scorer by parking himself in front of the net. He's on an amazing contract that the Flyers won't get full value on as they won't be competitive until at least 2019-20. It's best to trade him to a contender that can fit his contract.

Oilers: Simmonds (2 years x $3.975MM)
Flyers: Puljujarvi (2 years ELC), 1st 2018

I think this is too much from Edmonton but Simmonds is more valuable to Edmonton on the ice over the next two years than Puljujarvi and a draft pick. I think it's justifiable though; 2 years of Simmonds at $3.975 is enticing seeing as how he's a cheaper version of Lucic on a cheaper AAV.

Wild: Simmonds (2 years x $3.975MM)
Flyers: Kaprizov (KHL), 1st 2018

I don't know what Foligno, Grandlund and Niederreiter will command as RFAs but I'd imagine Minnesota is tight to the cap. I'd ask for Vegas' 2018 3rd as well due to the KHL factor.

The other obvious flaw is that the original proposal had Puljujarvi = Kaprizov, which I don't think is true.

26 Jul 2017 15:41:47
Because he is a UFA in 2 years, If anyone will give up a prospect like Puljujarvi, which I think if some teams want Simmonds that bad they might, They sure won't be adding a 1st to a prospect like that for two years of someone.

26 Jul 2017 17:21:58
I like it tbh not sure if Edmonton goes down that path tho.

08 Aug 2017 22:43:57
The 1st won't be nearly as high as Edmonton has been picking at seemingly for the last 20 years so that pick isn't as sexy as its made out.

16 Jul 2017 01:30:03
To ottawa : Giroux, and Voracek

To Philadelphia : Phaneuf, chlapic, brassard, and a 2nd

Philly gets a top prospect a pick a much needed top 6 defensive forward who can score and a big body heavy hitting dman who has revived his career since leaving Toronto and won't be forced to play more minutes than he can handle with their d core.

Ottawa finds a home for Phaneuf and lands 2 guys who still have time to turn their careers back around and make a rebound with a fresh start where they won't have the same pressure to preform around them they did in Philly. In ottawa the supporting cast they'll have can help divvy up the offence.

Big contract and somewhat big contract for 2 big contracts.

Thoughts?

16 Jul 2017 04:35:16
Bro. Cmon.

16 Jul 2017 05:03:19
Karlsson and turris for Plekanec?

16 Jul 2017 15:39:36
Laughable for Philly.

17 Jul 2017 21:43:06
HAHAHAH!
This can't be a legit proposal, can it? The top 2 Philly players for overpaid Phaneuf and scraps? Giroux AND Voracek would start with Chabot, plain and simple.

18 Jul 2017 22:03:10
Giroux and voracek are on the decline if last season is any indication I know this not just from what I saw but because I had both in my hockey pool which they both did not live up in any way to expectations and Phaneuf is getting his stride back while brassard is as consistent as he's ever been. And chlapic is one of the top 5 prospects in ottawa system. Plus a 2nd round pick to boot. Not to mention the money saved by Philly on those 2 big contracts moving out.

26 Sep 2017 00:15:06
Priceless!

10 Jul 2017 21:49:16
Giroux is still a good, not elite, 1C but his age does not fit with where the Flyers are as a team. With his NMC, he needs to go to a team that lacks a legit 1C, fancies itself a true contender, can or easily could make moves to take the cap hit, and to where Giroux would accept a trade. That leaves:

Ottawa: Giroux ($8.275 until 2022
Philadelphia: Brassard ($5.0 until 2019), 2018 1st + 3rd, 2019 2nd

Ottawa made the ECF and Giroux could put push them further in the playoffs. Brassard and Giroux are the same age.

Montreal: Giroux
Philadelphia: Plekanec ($6.0 until 2018), 2018 1st, 2018 2nd (CHI), 2019 2nd

Montreal definitely thinks of themselves as true contenders, committing themselves to Price etc. Radulov didn't resign and the Habs need a player to play with Pacioretty, Drouin etc.

11 Jul 2017 00:51:42
Why isn't he elite?

11 Jul 2017 00:56:49
Personally think there are only a handful of players in the elite catagory. McDavid, Crosby, Karlsson, Price, Kane. he's a tier down from those guys IMO.

11 Jul 2017 02:10:16
McJesus: Giroux isn't elite because his production doesn't support it. As a Flyers fan, I would love to say that he is but reality doesn't bear that out. Injuries or not, he's a very good player, but certainly not elite.

I posted these trades because I see a window for trading Giroux to two teams that could use seriously him and that he could realistically play for. I'm suggesting Hextall shoulds 'Schenn' Giroux, aka trade a better player for a worse player with a shorter contract plus valuable picks.

11 Jul 2017 02:57:29
Okay if that's how you categorize it I definitely agree with that.
But imo I think there are superstars (Crosby mcdavid) and then elite players (backstrom Giroux) but I agree with that then.

11 Jul 2017 14:03:51
He's definitely fallen off but I kinda see it like mcjesus. Those other guys are far beyond elite. Elite puts you in the top 50 or so in the league, best player or 2 on each team (obviously some teams have none and some have 4) but those other guys are above elite. They're the top 3-5 world wide. I get the purpose of the trade though, makes sense. If habs can't land Tavares via trade or UFA next summer they may have to visit something like this.

12 Jul 2017 01:40:13
Montreal adds a lot.

12 Jul 2017 01:47:00
IMO there is Generational talent ( McDavid, Lindstrom and Price ) then Franchise ( Towes, Doughty and Holtby ) then Elite ( Duchene, Faulk and Brobovsky )

13 Jul 2017 21:40:00
So you think brassard + 3rd is worth plekanec + 2nd ?

15 Jul 2017 12:01:08
@ McJesus Christ

If you need to ask why Giroux isn't elite, You need to watch more games. He hasn't been elite, except in the flyer media, for a couple years now. He's a good player but SURELY not elite.

30 Jun 2017 19:46:53
Philadelphia Acquires:
-Alex Galchenyuk
-Charlie Lindgren
-2nd round pick 2018

Montreal Acquires:
-Claude Giroux

I've seen many similar mock trades lately and I believe the value is fair as Giroux is coming off 2 bad seasons and Montreal is looking for a center. Giroux could bounce back but he might continue having 50 point seasons.

30 Jun 2017 19:54:27
seems like a good deal because Girlux has been declining every year and has a pretty big contract.

30 Jun 2017 21:26:41
As much as I would like Giroux on the habs, there is no way that Montreal would take his contract when we have to sign price within the year to a 9+ mill per year contract.

01 Jul 2017 05:29:09
I really like Lindgren and very hesitant to trade him. How about Patch for Giroux?

01 Jul 2017 14:26:50
Giroux for Galchenyuk is attractive from the Flyers perspective but can't see Flyers giving up Giroux. Habs could get younger, more cap-friendly pieces for Galchenyuk.

29 Jun 2017 18:09:36
Curious on what Philipp Grubauer's trade value is since the goalie market is so cheap right now.

Van: conditional 2nd 2019, 5th 2018
Wsh: Grubauer

Not sure what some realistic performance conditions are.
45 games or else it's a 3rd?

Could also see him as a good fit in Philly as a 1a/1b combo with neuvirth

thoughts?

29 Jun 2017 20:34:59
No, Keep draft picks. Rather sign a Kuemper, Kinkaid or a Berube rather than giving up a second round pick for a back up.

26 Jun 2017 23:18:47
Vegas: Jake Vorachek

Flyers: 2 2018 first round picks (yes they force Vagas toacquire another one but given the fact they are rebuilding that shouldn't be very difficult to do)

or 3 first round picks (2018, 2019, 2020).

The flyers can then sign Radulov to a 3/4 year 7 million per deal. They save 1.5 million over the course of the contract and will have the cap room they need once some prospect's entry level deal expires

27 Jun 2017 00:55:56
Why the hell would Vegas do this? Trade 3 first round picks for an over paid player so that flyers can go sign a different guy for less with out giving up assets? Why wouldn't Vegas just offer radulov big money like they have done with other KHL players?! Why would McPhee pay to get flyers out of cap trouble with a bad contract? Lol also Vegas isn't 'rebuilding', they are 'building'. A team that is not going to be good for a few seasons is not giving away multiple firsts. They look around the league and see the impact 18-22 year olds have on teams nowadays. They will build it right.

27 Jun 2017 01:26:53
Lmao are you serious.

27 Jun 2017 03:10:37
radulov want 7 years if it was 3/ 4 year he would be already sign.

27 Jun 2017 15:55:00
The next two 1st Rd picks by Vagas are guaranteed to have the 3rd slot in the lottery so that's a huge no. Two top 6 picks for an overpayed aging Vorchek? I don't think so.

26 Jun 2017 06:35:55
Montreal sends:

A. Galchenyuk

to Philadelphia for:

S. Couturier

The Canadiens are looking desperately for a centre and while Couturier's stats don't impress, he has the potential at 24 to develop into a true number one centre, in my opinion

The Flyers on the other hand are blessed with many centres, too many perhaps. Nolan Patrick is NHL ready and could potentially slot into their lineup next season, so they can afford to give up an asset like Couturier. Galchenyuk isn't the centerman that the Canadiens drafted him to be and is better suited to the wing, and the Flyers would love his firepower.

Let me know your thoughts!

26 Jun 2017 13:37:55
No from philly.

26 Jun 2017 14:01:34
Braydon Schenn deal kinda messed this scenario up. Not sure what he was thinking.

26 Jun 2017 16:19:11
Hell no from Montreal 😂😂😂Galchenyuk is better younger and had like 10 more points than couturier in 10 less games in a season where injuries ruined his year.

26 Jun 2017 16:42:54
Btw couturier will never be a number 1 center maybe second.

26 Jun 2017 17:33:50
Alikhan, Galchenyuk will never be a number 1 centre man either.

26 Jun 2017 21:13:55
Aikhan Couturier is a very good two way center. No he is probably never going to be a #1 but you seem to think Galchenyuk is better than anyone in any proposal. Maybe you should keep him then.

27 Jun 2017 01:06:14
Galchenyuk and coutourier shouldn't be compared playing style and points wise. They're too different. Just value wise. The way the habs were trying to win games, with the best goalie in the world and trading offensive d for stud solid low risk D, they should like coutourier over Galchenyuk. But what a disaster they have become in the last 18 months, who knows how they value anyone. I'm still laughing at the habs first rounder saying he's excited to go to a great organization like Toronto. haha.

27 Jun 2017 03:21:35
Unbiased Jim I'll admit that was funny.

27 Jun 2017 17:37:46
No from Philly. Couturier is not an offensive dynamo, but he brings so much to the game: excellent penalty killing, matchup against the other teams' top lines, and he fits well with the Flyers' long term vision. Schenn never fit well and hence, he was gone. Galchenyuk merely adds another Schenn type problem.

24 Jun 2017 02:45:01
Confirmed Trade:

Philadelphia Trades:
Brayden Schenn

St. Louis Trades:
Jori Lehtera
2017 1st round pick #27
Conditional 2018 first round pick

Wow! Just wow!

24 Jun 2017 05:40:08
That's a lot for schenn.

24 Jun 2017 05:45:36
I think that is terrible for philly. Did they really want this Frost kid or something? I didn't get to watch it but I don't like the deal. St. Louis now has a solid #2 centre who also plays wing.

24 Jun 2017 06:06:53
Agree with not today.

24 Jun 2017 10:09:06
I think this move shows that Philly thinks Patrick is ready to play next year.

24 Jun 2017 11:41:44
I agree hattrick but Schenn also plays wing and philly is weak on the wings. I still don't like it.

24 Jun 2017 16:34:54
Don't like the trade at all for the Flyers. You took back a near 5 million cap hit that's a stiff ad 2 probable lower 1st round picks, and hope they can both do what Schenn did. Flyers are now a weaker team, Hextall's trades are poor at best.

24 Jun 2017 20:06:41
I'm guessing they are going for Someone like Neal, Chuck or JVR for the 1st line LW role.

23 Jun 2017 18:17:34
In a perfect world

To Philadelphia

C. Schneider, A. Henrique, S. Santini, 1st overall and 2nd rd pick

To Jersey

C. Hart, T. Konecny, I. Provorov, 2nd overall

23 Jun 2017 21:40:58
No from Philly because of Prov although the value is there.

2nd ovr and Hart=1st ovr

Henrique=Konecny

Schneider, Santini and 2nd for Prov? Not bad but no from Philly.

21 Jun 2017 18:52:44
Flyers: #2 overall pick, Matt Read

Avs: #4 overall pick, Matt Duchene

Flyers are looking to win now with their current core players and have been linked to Duchene in the past. Avs are entering a rebuilding phase and will get their future #1 center in either Patrick or Hischier. I would expect the Flyers at #4 would draft Vilardi who would be a good player further down the road.

21 Jun 2017 19:08:30
If the Avs are trading Duchene, they are getting a dman for him.

21 Jun 2017 19:20:09
Two spot difference for Duchene? MAybe #2 straight up for Duchene. But not this,

21 Jun 2017 21:02:14
Lol never happening.

21 Jun 2017 21:03:39
31 year old right wing? This is a joke.

21 Jun 2017 21:50:00
Don't get this crazy talk over Duchene. He's a good player, not a great one, even some on here make it sound like he's elite.

22 Jun 2017 01:41:31
Lol oh he's only a "good player" but somehow makes team Canada back to back times for Olympics and World Cup? Think you got to be pretty good to make that man.

24 Jun 2017 20:13:53
You read it right. A GOOD PLAYER! He made team Canada so he's great in the NHl? LMAO Please just stop the nonsense.

26 Jun 2017 23:21:52
If Sakic took this deal he would be removed from the Hockey Hall of Fame.

20 Jun 2017 03:38:26
Vegas picks fleury from pitts and neuvirth from phi

Phi: Fleury, 6th overall

Vegas: 2nd overall Sanhein macdonald read

20 Jun 2017 05:33:24
holy rubbish what?

20 Jun 2017 07:22:34
Wouldnt do it from flyers stand point. Sanhein is a really good prospect.

20 Jun 2017 16:36:40
DO NOT want Fleury on this team. He let's in a lot of soft goals, that's why he became a backup. Sanheim isn't going anywhere unless someone overpays, that offer isn't an over payment! I know you have MacDonald and Read in it but MacDonald isn't as bad as some people keep crying about. Misused doesn't mean bad.

20 Jun 2017 17:38:48
MAF has waived his NTC for the Vegas expansion only. Any trade after that by Vegas would have to be approved by him. And I highly highly highly doubt he would accept a trade to Philly. Lol.
His wife was on Vegas a month or so ago looking at neighborhoods and schools for their kids. I'm thinking he plays for Vegas now and grooms a solid prospect for their future.

21 Jun 2017 02:04:59
2nd Overall for Fleury!? Plus Sanheim? LMAO.
