to Philadelphia

to Toronto

Equal cap hits (although gostisbehere has an extra year), but toronto would be well served by a defenseman of his caliber, even if that meant giving up a high quality center

Flyers have a lot of high quality young defensemen and really should try to increase offense as well as another veteran presence for their young guys.

15 Apr 2019 20:18:11
Heeeeeeell no from Philly. Gost is way younger and has the potential to return to his dominating offensive form.

15 Apr 2019 20:42:36
Ghost really isn’t the deffensman Toronto needs at all but with that being said if he’s a RHD I’d make that trade but I wouldn’t want to trade Kadri.

28 Mar 2019 11:33:59

Mikko Koskinen

28 Mar 2019 15:18:26
Every trade is dumb, especially the nuge trade that's horrendous. No way arizona takes that for galchenyuk like what are you thinking rn and i'd honestly hold onto gagner rather than getting a 7th round pick, ya we save some cap but like bru.

28 Mar 2019 16:21:06
Possibly the worse thing about this is how hagelin will get more the ferland as a Ufa. Ferland is going to get a 5x5 from some team.

29 Mar 2019 17:42:59
I'd say the Galchenyuk trade is the worst thing lol.

23 Feb 2019 00:41:18
2019 5th rounder

2019 1st rounder

14 Feb 2019 23:44:49
To EDM- Cam Talbot, RNH, Yamamoto, 2019 1st
To PHI- Ghost, Couturier, Simmonds
Sounds like Talbot has a real possibility of going to philly reguardless, because he has a relationship with carter hart and would be a good mentor. I feel like value is there. Maybe make a condition on the pick of simmonds resigns.

15 Feb 2019 02:05:25
Way to much from philly. Take out couturier and yamamoto and i say its a deal.

15 Feb 2019 03:50:35
I’d absolutely say no to that deal if couturier isn’t included.

15 Feb 2019 03:52:01
Oilers don’t need an aging Simmonds tbh (I mean we could certainly use him lol but not worth it at his age and decline happening already) but if Ghost/ provorov and couturier are there it’s really interesting.

15 Feb 2019 16:28:33
If Simmonds is worth at least the 1st, then the rest of that package doesn’t come anywhere close to getting Couturier and Ghost. Not even close.

16 Feb 2019 08:48:10
Flyers would not include Simmonds. They should take advantage of Edmontons cap woes. Take on Lucic's contract (buy him out or test for one seadon) and ask for Pulijarvi or yamamato to be included in any Talbot trade. Here is what i propose:

Philly gets Talbot, Lucic, Yamamoto

Edmonton gets Elliott and much coveted cap space. The cost of digging out of the cap mess.

14 Feb 2019 18:30:52
Oilers: Talbot + Nurse

Flyers: Elliot + Provorov.

14 Feb 2019 18:52:45
You know what, if philly plans on offering a contract extension to Talbot and they in fact want him for long term I think that’s very interesting. Oilers upgrade with a more offensive dman while philly get Nurse back this is for sure interesting and I’d take this if I’m Edmonton.

14 Feb 2019 18:59:54
Absolutely not how can you think that’s a fair deal? Talbot isn’t bad cause of Talbot . Talbot is bad because Edmonton is terrible . The issues go deeper then the goaltending . P.

14 Feb 2019 19:08:08
I know provorov is having a down year to, while nurse currently has his career high for points (although provs is 41 from last year) but nurse for sure fits phillys style of tough hockey.

14 Feb 2019 19:19:04
I can't see Philly trading to get Talbot as they have had enough goalies that will not lead them to the playoffs and Provorov is much better than Nurse.

14 Feb 2019 19:48:53
donahuej i'd be lying if i said i know what you're talking about lol because i have no clue. Nobody said Talbot is bad haha.

14 Feb 2019 20:20:10
Lol that trade says Talbot is bad! Not delusional.

14 Feb 2019 20:53:27
I like the goalie swap, both need a backup but for different reasons, Edmonton needs a serviceable backup to Koskinen next season, while Philly needs a veteran backup to ease Hart into the starter role and both him and Talbot are friends.

The defense swap may interest Edmonton for cap reasons but I don't see Philly wanting to let go of Provorov this early.

14 Feb 2019 22:41:56
haha what how does it say he's bad! Oilers need to lose some cap and he's a ufa its almost guarenteed talbot is going to get traded haha.

14 Feb 2019 22:42:29
Yup i agree with your points Drwdave, not sure how willing philly would be to let go from provorov.

14 Feb 2019 23:01:42
Philly I’m sure says no easily. Provorov’s ceiling is a lot higher than Nurses. If they want Talbot and it sounds like they do, it’ll be for a lot smaller deal I think.
Also DrwDave I’m sure Provorov is going to be making more money than Nurse next year so it doesn’t help Edmonton with cap.

15 Feb 2019 01:11:55
Isn’t Provorov projected to be top 5 defenseman and potential Norris candidate? I don’t know if Philly would be willing to make that trade. Nurse is good, but not that good.

15 Feb 2019 02:07:10
Why nurse so overrated

12 Feb 2019 11:34:45
Mtl: Juulsen, Phoeling

Philly: Ghostibehere

Mtl gets a good LHD while Philly gets a good young RHD and a big A center prospect

12 Feb 2019 15:02:18
No from Montreal.

12 Feb 2019 18:04:30
No from Montreal? I was thinking Flyer’s would be the ones saying no here. Poehling and Juulsen are a couple real good prospects, but neither is proven at NHL level. I expect Flyers would want a return that would improve the team immediately without having to wait for guys to develop.

12 Feb 2019 18:18:40
Isn’t Juulsen out with a severe vision injury that a couple weeks ago was being called career threatening? Why would flyers trade cost controlled player for one unproven and one who may never be the same? If juulsen comes back and picks up the progress he was making, it could be revisited but as it is Flyers would get better offers.

12 Feb 2019 20:22:08
I firmly believe a team would give up much more then this for Ghost.

11 Feb 2019 23:44:27
MTL trades

Victor Mete, Joni ikonen, 2019 1st, 2019 2nd.

Philly trades


12 Feb 2019 01:02:38
No thanks! Way to much for Ghost.

12 Feb 2019 00:54:57
Confirmed trade, I think it's a good move by Bergevin.

12 Feb 2019 01:35:21
More then I'd want to give up but ghost would probably help the powerplay in a big way.

12 Feb 2019 01:54:53
Confirmed by who?

12 Feb 2019 03:26:13
It’s not a confirmed trade. Not enough for Ghost. Philly can do better.

12 Feb 2019 04:16:04
It’s not that it’s too much or too little for Ghost, it’s tge matter philly can get better offers and if this was the best they got then I’m pretty positive they would just keep him.

12 Feb 2019 04:32:49
I don't see what's so special about him. . Mete is younger, and getting better every game. may not get the points Ghost gets, but I think he's better in his own zone. so. I wouldn't do this.

12 Feb 2019 11:32:00
Just joking this is way too much for Ghostibehere. Maybe if he was on pace for 65 points this year but it's not the case. he's on pace for 30 points and 30 points offensive defensemens don't get this much.

12 Feb 2019 11:37:13
I'd do the trade if montreal gets to keep Mete.

12 Feb 2019 14:47:59
I'd say Mete OR the 1st. not both. But i think he would be great beside Weber.

11 Feb 2019 18:04:20
Mtl: Fleury, 2rd 2019, Lekonen

Philly: Simmonds

Mtl can try Simmonds on the power play and he can also bring some energy and bruising in the top 9. No Philly don't get a first but a first is never a guarantee. Lekonen can replace Simmonds in the top 9 not the same type of player but he is still young and already a leader for his team with his A. Fleury is a B+ prospect and the second is going to be the earliest one that mtl has

11 Feb 2019 18:43:19
Im sure Philly will look for better offers.

11 Feb 2019 18:57:26
I wouldn't do it from a habs perspective unless simmonds could be resigned to a good contract.

09 Feb 2019 16:35:38
Habs trade schlemko and froese to philly for weise and folin. The weise man cometh lol

09 Feb 2019 18:11:26
I love when people react "unbelievable" to a confirmed trade. change of scenery trade?

09 Feb 2019 19:14:25
Yes it is pkane but the habs needed a little depth on the right side D with juulsen out. So it might come in handy there too.

09 Feb 2019 21:16:31
I really like this for Habs. if. Weiss is same player he was. He played his heart out on Habs. maybe not the most skilled or talented, but I never remember being disappointed with his play. he's a 4th liner, who acts like a top liner, jus doesn't have the skill to be one but bring energy, unlike Agostino, who also thinks he's a top line guy. but is jus a mess.

09 Feb 2019 21:24:44
makes sense habby, is Folin much of an upgrade over Schlemko, i don't know much about him. weise seemed like a good fit in his previous time in montreal so that part makes sense.

09 Feb 2019 22:53:52
Weise is getting buried in the minors, so it looks like Habby is right in saying Montreal did this for depth for the right side defense. Folin was a victim of Flyer’s depth on defense. He’s not a bad player, but was healthy scratch this year a lot. He should see more ice time in Montreal.

I’m not too sure how this trade benefits Philly though, since they buried both Froese and Schlemko.

09 Feb 2019 23:00:50
Well he's a righty and schlemko is a lefty. Schlemko is actually better then he has shown in montreal injuries killed his chance of playing here. But he was never getting back into the habs lineup if folin gets a chance he could suprise. I don't see an issue with his skill set preventing him from being able to hold down a 3rd pair position. That being said they could both be in laval for the remainder of their contracts too. From the flyers POV I'm sure they feel the same way about the two players they are getting back. I could see froese coming up and giving them 20 high energy games and you never know a different style could work for schlmko too.

05 Feb 2019 09:33:29
New York Rangers acquire 
• (LHD) Juuso Valimaki

Calgary Flames acquire
• (LW) Mats Zuccarello (verbal agreement to resign)

(Reason: Flames get top 6 forward with experience, Rangers shed cap and get a promising young LHD)

Philadelphia Flyers acquire
• (G) Mike Smith

Calgary Flames acquire
• (2020) 6th-Round Pick

(Reason: Flames shed cap, Flyers get goaltender depth)

Ottawa Senators acquire
• (RHD) Michael Stone (verbal agreement to resign, hopefully gives Mark a better reason to stay in Ottawa)
• (2020) 5th-Round Pick

Calgary Flames acquire
• (2019) 7th-Round Pick

(Reason: Flames shed cap for deadline pickup, Senators make Ottawa a more desirable place to stay to Mark Stone)

Carolina Hurricanes acquire
• (RW) Michael Frolik
• (C) Mark Jankowski
• (2019) 1st-Round Pick

Calgary Flames acquire
• (LW) Micheal Ferland
• (G) Curtis McEhleinny

(Reason: Flames get tougher and get more scoring and a decent backup goalie, Hurricanes get better forward depth and a 1st)

(Tkachuk really excelled at rw in the ohl)

Flames Projected Line-Up:

J Gaudreau - S Monahan - E Lindholm
M Zuccarello - M Backlund - M Tkachuk
M Ferland - S Bennett - J Neal
A Mangiapane - D Ryan - G Hathaway

M Giordano - T Brodie
N Hanifin - T Hamonic
O Kylington - R Andersson

David Rittich
Curtis McEhleinney

05 Feb 2019 16:09:22
im sure mark stone won't give a shiet if his brother who sucks plays there in ottawa with him lol.

05 Feb 2019 17:02:41
Is getting zuccarello really better than the 3M line?

Tkachuk backlund frolik

Is not a problem line.
The flames don't really have a need outside of goaltending, wants maybe, but I think they're solid enough to hopefully keep their first.

05 Feb 2019 18:38:26
If flames got zuccarello, he'd be on the 3rd line with neal, but have heard flames have talked to nyr about him.

07 Feb 2019 01:15:54
If the flames trade vali we better be getting duchene or panarin and we better be resigning them, or else i would sooner move brodie, hammonic, ras. gio is getting older we can't afford to sell off vali for zuc.

08 Feb 2019 21:22:49
Flyers don't need a G like smith (overpayed) they have an abundiance of G's. Carter is the future of the Flyers!

04 Feb 2019 11:26:36
Calgary Flames acquire
• Mats Zuccarello
New York Rangers acquire
• Mark Jankowski
• Oliver Kylington
• 2019 1st-Round Pick
• Andrew Mangiapane?

Seen on hfboards and according to other sources flames are looking to acquire zucc.

Calgary Flames acquire
• 2019 6th-Round Pick
Philadelphia Flyers acquire
• Mike Smith

Projected Line-Up -

J Gaudreau - S Monahan - E Lindholm
M Tkachuk - M Backlund - M Frolik
M Zuccarello - S Bennett - J Neal
A Czarnik - D Ryan - G Hathaway

M Giordano - T Brodie
N Hanifin - T Hamonic
J Valimaki - R Andersson

04 Feb 2019 13:19:25
Way too much for Zucc.

04 Feb 2019 14:04:02
It is a high price, but realistic with what NYR will be asking.

04 Feb 2019 20:29:35
So, Calgary is going to go into the playoffs with David Rittich as the starter (never played an NHL playoff game) and who is going to be his back up?

04 Feb 2019 22:04:57
. and for Zuc we should add Rittich, Gaudreau, Tkachuk and maybe even throw in Peters for good measure. lol
How about a second and one of those you mentioned plus a lower pick/ prospect? Seems a bit more doable.

05 Feb 2019 01:21:24
Zuccarello shouldn't get nearly that, dudes got 9 goals, jankowski and a 2nd would be plenty, jankowski got 8 goals, way younger, better contract. don't get why people think he'd get what duchane or stone would get.

31 Jan 2019 15:29:34
Colorado trade Jost
Philly: Simmonds.

31 Jan 2019 19:21:07
atleast put some effort into this like obviously huge no from colorado.

31 Jan 2019 14:34:02
Toronto looking for that heavy forward and Right handed 6 or 7 Dman.

TOR: Simmonds and Radko
PHI: Brown, Ozhiganov, Bracco and 2rd pk 2019

31 Jan 2019 15:03:02
That doesn't help philly as much as it helps the leafs.

31 Jan 2019 15:38:22
Philly will not make the playoffs and they will not resign Simmonds next year!

31 Jan 2019 15:50:08
The Leafs playoff roster.

Kapanen Matthews Nylander
Marleau Tavares Marner
Hyman Kadri Simmonds
Lindholm Gauthier Johnsson

Rielly Muzzin
Gardiner Hainsey
Dermott Radko

31 Jan 2019 16:53:45
I think Simmonds will pull in a 1st from somewhere. He would be nice in Nashville I think.

31 Jan 2019 17:18:33
Jeremy Bracco (only 21) was a 2nd rd pk in 2015 (61 overall) . That including Brown and a 2nd PK this year is shown net you the Simmonds type of player.

GP G A P +/ - PIM

2017-18 Toronto Marlies AHL 50 6 26 32 6 10
2018-19 Toronto Marlies AHL 43 12 31 43 3 8.

31 Jan 2019 18:47:19
If this was the only offer that philly got sure. But they will get more offers and all of them will be better then this.

31 Jan 2019 19:29:12
Plus from what they are saying now toronto has about 50,000 in cap space.

31 Jan 2019 20:35:31
If Bracco Brown second get you Simmonds as you say, then it’s Oz for Gudas which Philly still says no to. I don’t think you can get both those players without a first. I think the biggest thing stopping Tampa or Toronto from getting Simmonds is that neither have the rights to their first this year to trade, he’ll probably get one and Gudas get like a second.

30 Jan 2019 09:57:32
Philadelphia Trades

Toronto Trades
3rd Round Pick 2019


30 Jan 2019 13:48:31
Toronto would need to add a bit more for Philly taking Zaitsev as a 5 year cap dump.

30 Jan 2019 17:26:00
Ok change the 3rd Round Pick to a 2nd Round Pick 2020.
Gudas isn't an AllStar Defenceman here.

30 Jan 2019 18:48:26
Gudas might not be an all star but he’s a solid D man having a very successful year. Gudas probably pulls in a second on his own, and with Zaitsev contract being too much and long term you probably have to add to it to move Zaitsev in the same deal.

30 Jan 2019 19:03:08
Considering his style of play, I’m very impressed without gidas’ possession metrics. He’s a damn good player. Would love him on the Leafs.

30 Jan 2019 21:04:08
No take out zaitsev and just make the 3rd a 2nd and then it's close.

30 Jan 2019 00:54:23
EDM- Russell (1 mil retained)
BOS or CBJ- 2019 2nd, 2019 3rd
-Russell would be a good defensive D that can play up the depth chart if there’s any injuries. He’d be perfect for a playoff push and after being retained he’d make 3 million for 2 more years.

EDM- Talbot, 2019 4th
PHI- Laughton
-Philly needs better goaltending. Instead of overpaying in free agency they can see if Talbot works out and sign him at a little bit of a discount.

EDM- Chiasson, 2019 5th
WAS- Burakovsky
-Rumour is Washington is looking for a veteran top 9 forward for Burakovsky. Who better than a guy that won a cup last year with them and is on pace for 34 goals.

EDM- Rieder, 2020 4th
DAL- Nichushkin
-Similar to the Cogliano Shore trade. Dallas gets a more proven player while Edmonton gets a player that has fallen out of favour but still has potential.

EDM- Petrovic
MIN or COL- 2020 4th
-Petrovic is a UFA at the end of the season. Just a mid pick for extra depth to a playoff bubble team.

30 Jan 2019 04:13:19
Would love if all those could happen.

30 Jan 2019 04:43:56
@McJ, I know it’s not very realistic for a team to make 5 deadline deals but do you think those are realistic/ fair?

Those are all playoff teams looking to add at the deadline except Philly but that could be a smart move for them.

30 Jan 2019 05:18:10
I definitely think Russell could get moved and if we could get a 2nd round pick and get 4m in cap off that would be sweeeet. Also if it’s true Washington is looking for a veteran then that trade would be really nice for oilers even tho we take on cap so idk if that will work out.

30 Jan 2019 18:34:14
if keith can move atleast 3-4 of the following contracts with taking back minimal salary back i'd call it a huge success:
-Benning, Russell, Petro, Manning, spooner, reider, kassian and talbot.

30 Jan 2019 19:11:00
@notdelusional, Petrovic, Rieder and Talbot should all be easy to move because there UFA’s. As for Benning and Kassian I actually like them on the team even though there slightly overpaid. Lastly Manning and Spooner are on the team because of a bad GM but yeah I’d love for them to be gone.

31 Jan 2019 01:43:41
How long is it going to take to climb out of the hole Chia has dug for the oilers? I’m not seeing a ton of reasons to be optimistic for a quick turnaround.

29 Jan 2019 20:10:26
Philadelphia: Wayne Simmonds, Neuvirth

Nashville: Saros, 2nd

29 Jan 2019 20:35:25
I like it if not for the fact Hart is playing so well in Philly!

29 Jan 2019 22:04:28
I think that’s a no from the Preds.

28 Jan 2019 21:44:32
WPG: Little, 1st Round Pick 2019
PHI: Couturier

28 Jan 2019 23:01:40
not a chance from philly bruh.

28 Jan 2019 23:02:14
Oh my Lordy no from philly lol.

28 Jan 2019 23:50:46
Wooo, I know Philly's doing bad but they definitely ain't trading Couts for that.

29 Jan 2019 02:13:26
Philly would absolutely want more and Little wouldn't waive his NMC for Philly.

28 Jan 2019 15:51:31
A couple possible trade options for the Jets.

OTT: Stone
WPG: Vesalainen, Comrie, 1st Round Pick 2019

PHI: Simmonds
WPG: 1st Round Pick 2019, Petan

CAR: Ferland
WPG: 1st Round Pick 2019, Suess

PIT: Brassard
WPG: Copp, Petan

28 Jan 2019 16:01:17
I like the Ferland deal out of all of those!

28 Jan 2019 16:40:47
The Jets don't need Stone and can't afford his next contract.

The Jets don't need Simmonds or Ferland.

Too much for Brassard. The idea of TDL deals is to add to your depth, not give away two depth pieces to get one.

So, no to all 4.

28 Jan 2019 02:04:16
Leafs Trade: 1st, 2020 3rd, and Liligren
Blues Trade: Pieterangelo
Leafs Trade: 2020 2nd, Brown
Flyers Trade: Gudas
Leafs Trade: 3rd and Bracco
Devils Trade: Boyle
Leafs call up Moore (permanent) and move Kadri up to Play wing.
Boyle fits perfect on 3rd with speed of Kapanen and Johnson
Try and get a pick back for Zaitsev

Kadri Tavares Marner
Hyman Matthews Nylander
Johnson Boyle Kapanen
Marleau Lindholm Moore
Ennis Goat

Rielly Pieterangelo
Gardiner Gudas
Dermott Hainsey

28 Jan 2019 14:17:51
Gudas for Brown and a 2nd? Gudas is Trash. I’d give a 2nd for him not to go to the leafs.

28 Jan 2019 16:58:57
Gudas has probably been the flyers most consistent dman this year. He's ideally a good 3rd pair and he probably could be that on any team in the league. He will get at least a 2nd if they trade him.

28 Jan 2019 18:40:37
LOL at the Pieterangelo trade. If they trade him they are getting more than that. Throw in s Kapenen and another pick and you might get close.

29 Jan 2019 00:04:33
If you want petro like I said before you will have to pay up


Tor- nylander/ kappy sandin/ liljgren 1st 2019. + if you need to add cap dump.

23 Jan 2019 08:45:22
EDM- Laughton
PHI- Talbot, 2019 4th

Philly needs goaltending and they would able to see if Talbot is there guy without investing free agency money on him. Could be a condition on if Talbot resigns as well.

Laughton would be a good young depth player and a replacement for Cave as 3C.
