The Flyers should move Simmonds now because they will be facing a cap crunch when they need to sign their upcoming RFAs (Provorov, Konecny, Sanheim, Patrick) and can't give Simmonds the term and AAV he'll demand. Buffalo needs a character guy in the locker room to help change the culture and have the cap space in the short and medium term to sign him.

I've modelled it off the Schenn trade and adjusted for contracts, player value etc.

Philadelphia: Conditional SJ 1st 2019 (Kane trade), Conditional 2019 STL 1st (O'Reilly trade), Sobotka ($3.5MM UFA 2020) (borderline cap dump)

Buffalo: Simmonds ($3.975MM UFA 2018), Morin ($700k RFA 2021) NHL ready but injured until February (for the blue line long term)

Both should be firsts in the late teens or 20s.

15 Aug 2018 20:52:08
Seems like an overpayment from buffalo. He'll be an unrestricted free agent next year so his value decreases slightly due to the latter.

15 Aug 2018 23:17:28
What exactly are the conditions on the picks.

Values not bad for the beginning of the year.

15 Aug 2018 23:57:54
I would peg Simmonds as fetching a late first and a B prospect so I added Sobotka and Morin to balance things out. Buffalo has short and medium term cap space to resign Simmonds. I think Simmonds may want to commit to Buffalo if they give him AAV and term, he can play on an up and coming team with Eichel and Dahlin, and is close to Toronto. It also seems Buffalo is willing to part with futures for current talent to become relevant again and have a shot at the playoffs.

16 Aug 2018 18:14:15
2 1sts for rental? Big overpayment. + buffalos 1st will most likely be bottom 5. They lost there best 2 way forward and winger but replaced Kane with Skinner and you can’t count on a 18 year old dman to carry a team.

16 Aug 2018 18:37:02
He doesn't have buffalos 1st in this trade if you look they are both from other teams they also aren't just getting simmonds. Unless your thinking that morin is equal to sobotka.

16 Aug 2018 20:17:13
Yeah, it’s not Sabres own 1st rounder. But still it is apparently based on the Brayden Schenn trade but the blues got a 25 year old Schenn at $5 mill for 3 more years. This is one year and Simmonds, who is turning 30 in a week. He’s great at what he does, but I don’t see the 2 players as that comparable, or their current situations, so I wouldn’t assume that similar of a return. That’s just me though lol.

16 Aug 2018 21:59:13
Ohh okay my apologies but with that being said at the deadline I could see him maybe getting a 1st or a 2nd + a prospect like Liespic he had a weak season last year similar to Patches.

03 Aug 2018 14:48:00
If Tampa acquires and extends Karlsson (RHD), they need to move out salary and go all in this and next year.

Philadelphia: Girardi ($3MM UFA 2019), Callahan ($5.8MM UFA 2020 NTC), Foote, 2020 1st (TB)
Tampa: Vecchione, Leier

Vecchione is NHL ready but can't crack the roster and Leier has NHL experience. Both are cheap and would be great depth players for a long playoff run which Tampa is poised to do. Callahan might waive to go to a good, young, emerging team if he's smart enough to realize he's an impediment in TB.

Philadelphia has the cap space to take on these contracts without impeding future deals (Provorov, Konecny, Patrick etc). Foote and Myers would be the Flyers RHD of the future.

San Jose: Simmonds ($3.975MM UFA 2019)
Philadelphia: 2019 2nd (FLA), 2020 1st (SJS)

It's doubtful that the Flyers can re-sign Simmonds long term. If the Flyers acquire Callahan, Simmonds is surplus value and should go to a contender that can pay him $5-7MM for 4-6 years. With Thornton coming off the books, the Sharks can extend Simmonds for their window. Philadelphia has Voracek, Konecny, and Allison as RW long term.

Philadelphia maximizes their return while using cap space and roster spots. 2019 Draft priority is RW.

Flyers 2020-2021 Roster:


In waiting: Ratcliffe, Farabee, Rubstov, Vorobyev, Strome, Sushko, O'Brien


03 Aug 2018 15:21:37
Good post.

03 Aug 2018 20:05:43
Foote and a 1st to move out Cally? Don’t think so. It’ll prolly just take the 1st. Cause Girardi is basically just a rental cause his contract ends before any resigning would be done.

Simmonds trade isn’t that bad imo, but ain’t that third line a bit inexperienced? Idk, i'd prefer Simmonds there imo.

04 Aug 2018 07:10:37
Foote and 1st is way too steep a price to pay to trade Callahans remaining contract. Could as well buy him out next summer. And you think if Vecchione and Leier can't crack PHIs arguably worse F corps, they will make it on TB? Weird logic
Either send some good value back or take out Foote and then TB maybe considers it.

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

Canucks Trade: Brandon Sutter, 2nd 2019.

02 Aug 2018 01:46:08
Awesome, just what the Canucks need.

30 Jul 2018 01:51:42
WPG: Kulikov, Lipon
PHI: Goulbourne

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.

23 Jul 2018 23:25:51
Phillipe Myers (RHD - 678K x 2 Years) + Jori Lehtera (C - 4.7 Million x 1 Year) to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Josh Leivo (LW/ RW - 650K x 1 Year) + Eamon McAdam (G - 800K x 1 Year) + 2019 5th Round Pick.

I know, it looks like Toronto fleeces Philly. But Philly wants to be a playoff contender this year, and can use the extra 4 Million in Cap Space if they decide to try and improve their roster via trade (Panarin, Skinner, Duchene possibly, maybe even a goalie) . Myers is a RHD prospect, and it does hurt to lose that, but Lehtera is legitimately useless, and is being paid 4.1 Million. If he can be dumped in the AHL he should be, and Toronto has nearly 20 million in cap space. Leivo can be a bottom six guy in Philly, and Myers could be a top 6 dman in Toronto.

Only reason I chose Philly is because they have a surplus of d (Ghost, Sanheim, Gudas, Prov, Morin) . Plus, it may seem like a lot to dump one year of a bad contract, but CHI dumped one year of Bickell with Teuvo for only a 2nd.

24 Jul 2018 05:18:35
I actually like this deal for both teams, Lehtera can be a 4th line center or AHLer for TOR and we get another RHD in our pool (something we can definitely use) and PHI gets rid of the cap while adding some potential goal scoring in Leivo (who TOR can replace from within the system) .

24 Jul 2018 15:13:11
Don’t think Philly does this but I’d take it from the Leafs POV.

25 Jul 2018 11:36:49
This is a good offer makes sense for both teams.

28 Jul 2018 17:17:18
I say no from Philly. Philly does have a bunch of D but not many RHD, they're expecting Myers to slot into top 4 then top pair eventually. You'll need to send more to philly for one if their top prospects especially when Hextall does not like to move prospects. I do like the idea of the trade tho.

22 Jul 2018 00:02:52
To Philly; 67

To Mtrl; Simmonds, Raffl, sec round pic


22 Jul 2018 14:32:21
Why do people on here think that Pacioretty is some type of superstar?

Pacioretty: 2017-2018 17G 20A 37P -16, $4.5MM UFA 2019, age 29
Simmonds: 2017-2018 24G 22A 46P -16, $3.975MM UFA 2019, age 29

Both have a great history of scoring goals but Simmonds is great in the locker room, heart and soul kinda guy (beloved in Philly), will want a raise but not have a chip on his shoulder like Patches, had a better last season, and is cheaper on this contract and probably the next one too.

Keep your baby, Habs fans.

22 Jul 2018 15:34:04
See I’m a habs fan I’ve watched a lot of patch, I don’t see how he is a “baby” to some people. He goes into the corners and battles hard, just because he’s 6’2 and doesn’t try to bulldoze his way through people doesn’t mean he’s a “baby”. Just look at big Joe he rarely runs people over is he a baby?

22 Jul 2018 16:29:03
This is the first time iv ever seen somebody use a number referring to a player before oooo.

22 Jul 2018 19:21:33
Pacioretty is captain man I'm sure he's not a locker room trouble.

22 Jul 2018 20:48:39
Mike Richards was captain in philly and pronger came in as a more seasoned, proven leader and the dressing room was split a year later. That wasn’t a secret.

That situation is pretty similar to patches and Weber. Not saying it’s for sure the same thing, but also wouldn’t say just because he’s captain there can’t be trouble. I think there’s been a lot of smoke around patches being traded and they have moved out other players that have been off ice issues recently. Don’t think it’s a big stretch to think there could be some guys not getting along with him there.

22 Jul 2018 21:13:41
We'll they voted him in as captain so if there is a problem they can all blame themselves. but we can only assume cause we are not in the room. My point was to the guy who said simmonds is great in the room. Maybe he's trouble too by your logic. but as it stands patch is a captain so that argument is pretty stupid imo.

22 Jul 2018 23:32:58
I don’t think they “voted” patches to be captain lol they aren’t 8 year olds, the management and coaching staff pick captains haha but still just bcuz you’re captain doesn’t mean you can’t cause trouble but I’m sure he’s a good locker room guy.

22 Jul 2018 23:49:14
It’s a bad trade. Why trade Simmonds + to get patches? Same age, same position, same term left, patches has slightly higher salary and Simmonds has had success in philly and plays there game. Makes no sense to pay extra assets.

23 Jul 2018 05:19:01
@mcjesus, they did actually vote him captain! Lol I remember hearing it at the time and even kypreos on sportsnet made the same joke. “Why is an NHL team being run like peewee houseleague? ”

P. K. subban announces his $10 mill hospital donation the day before they voted (convenient lol) and when he wasn’t voted captain they said that was a big turning point for him there.

23 Jul 2018 06:11:22
Hahahahaha no way that’s crazyy haha.

23 Jul 2018 07:21:30
CTC55: I call him a baby not for his on ice play, but for all of the drama associated with that guy (contract demands, captaincy etc) . I like skilled finesse players the same as hard hitting players, so that has no bearing on my opinion of him as a player. Frankly, my misgivings with some elements of the Canadiens aside, Habs fans deserve much better than the drama-filled tire fire that is that franchise.

23 Jul 2018 14:49:44
I think there’s some guys that just command respect and have to be the leader. That guy to me is Shea Weber. When he was 27 years old surrounded by other NHL players 18-40 years old he still looks and acts like a man among boys. When they made the subban trade for him, I thought he should have been named captain, or this paccioretty being scapegoated was inevitable. Not that Patches wasn’t doing a good job, but something about Weber tells me the guy would be the alpha in a room with chuck Norris and Steven Segal. I watched some jets coverage talking about Blake wheeler and they were saying they all thought Ladd was a great captain till he left and Wheeler took over. Wheeler is another level. I think habs fans (not you Habby) but others I’ve talked to, management and ownership are ready for a new leader.

23 Jul 2018 20:58:56
@ Eazy E, Fair point on the drama but IMO he's behaved reasonable. It's the same with all contracts you try to get the best you can out of it, he hasn't said anything disrespectful towards the media.

Sorry for kinda pointing you out it's just I've seen so many people (on this site and on others) say he's a big baby that dives once he is touched and say he's not worth a 2nd RD pick. I just think people forget that they aren't just things they're people too and deserve some respect.

18 Jul 2018 21:48:33
WPG: Trouba, Little, Petan
PHI: Gostisbehere, Patrick

18 Jul 2018 22:54:34
This trade could be doable but the Jets would have to be patient with Patrick as he has been rushed into the NHL before he was really ready. Trouba is much better defensively than Gostisbehere who is superior offensively. Both teams win and lose so its a good proposal.

19 Jul 2018 00:23:48
No. The Jets don't need another offensive D man at the cost of a defensive D man.

19 Jul 2018 00:25:26
Okay so Little and Petan have basically no value ( late first packaged ) so Ghost ( the better player) for Trouba and you’re getting Patrick for free. Just to put in perspective for the three major fan bases on this site as a defencman Ghost ( 65 points ) out produced Nylander ( 61 points ), Ehlers ( 60 Points ) and came close to oilers franchise phenomenon/ super star 2nd best player in the planet Leon Draisaitl ( only 5 more Points with 70 )

19 Jul 2018 00:31:49
Holy Fluk. You haven't gotten one close. Not even a little.

19 Jul 2018 01:02:06
Yeah that's a huge no. Patrick and ghost lol.

19 Jul 2018 04:30:39
What are you saying lol no from Philly bruh 🙄.

19 Jul 2018 08:26:08
No from Philly and it's not close.
Ghost > Trouba
Patrick >>> Little and Petan.

19 Jul 2018 11:38:17
You cantactually say Patrick is better than proven leaders, point scorers. Yes he has a massive ceiling and is still young, but so did aki berg. Value wise, it's a no from both teams, your losing 2 key players from a contender for 2 players who haven't proven they can win in the playoffs. And Patrick would probably only be traded for a high ceiling offensive talent since he is purely a cheaper/ less skilled version of Matthews, with a couple more years of development.

19 Jul 2018 11:43:47
Lol. You're a sad little man VBB. Always throwing random little jabs in at the Oilers. Get over yourself man. Why are you so butt hurt all the time you need to take shots on oilers players when they have absolutely nothing to do with the post.

19 Jul 2018 14:15:43
I was just putting his value in perspective lol.

20 Jul 2018 16:12:26
Not really sure how you can compare Patrick to Mathews two completely different types of players.

16 Jul 2018 02:49:49
Toronto Maple Leafs:

- Kasperi Kapanen

Philadelphia Flyers:

- Samuel Morin


Toronto needs that physical defenceman on their blueline. Morin is 6'6 and 210lbs. Would fit that need perfectly.

The Flyers have a lack of depth on RW. With Simmonds looking like he can be on the way out from Philly and Brayden Schenn being traded, the Flyers need to improve.

Both players have had AHL success but could not turn it into NHL success.

16 Jul 2018 06:32:54
Toronto needs rhd imo.

16 Jul 2018 12:45:26
Would want a righty. Also have heard a lot of people praise Morin on here but never really seen him play. However been really impressed by kapanen and think his speed and skill is about to make him break out. He’s been used as a 4th liner and on the P. K. but is about to get time with Kadri plus PP.

16 Jul 2018 14:59:20
What about McKeon from the Canes? He shoots right.

16 Jul 2018 15:20:43
I would not trade Kappanen for a LHD. The leafs would rather trade Brown or Hyman.

16 Jul 2018 17:06:50
McKewon makes more sense. Still a little hesitant to trade kapanen tho. Not saying he’s untouchable lol I’d trade him in a package for an upgrade on D. Just believe in him enough that I wouldn’t risk a straight swap for someone else really unproven. He has all the tools to be really good in today’s NHL and still only 21.

16 Jul 2018 17:07:43
And with JT replacing bozak, that means kap and Johnsson should get a good opportunity to replace JVR And komarov.

17 Jul 2018 08:03:55
I'd ask the Ducks if they're willing to do Manson/ Montour for Kapanen + pick/ prospect.

17 Jul 2018 12:34:27
I would too @benn. Just think it’s a very big + for Manson and a fairly big one for Montour.

17 Jul 2018 14:05:27
Yeah, that's probably true. I have no idea how much value both guys have.

17 Jul 2018 14:40:43
Manson hasn’t even started his 4yr/ $4.1mill contract there. Trading for a young Dman that good with 4 years term at a good cap hit Will be extremely expensive. And I believe the team still has RFA control after (might be wrong on that), but that’s another advantage.

17 Jul 2018 18:16:51
Manson is like 26 I believe so he’s not young he’s in his prime ducks have no more RFA control.

17 Jul 2018 20:55:45
Guys, if you really want to trade for Roland McKeown do it, but not a great idea. He isn't going to be more than a 3rd pairing/ 7th defenceman in the NHL. You could probably sign somebody better and without giving up a player.

McKeown has 35P in 140 AHL games.

18 Jul 2018 12:14:22
No value for philly. hextall hangs up phone.

20 Jul 2018 15:00:25
And they would say yes as long as the prospect is Timothy lilijegreen.


Tor:Lilijegreen, Kapanen,2rd 2019.

15 Jul 2018 10:48:40
Habs: Max Pacioretty
Flyers: Samuel Morin, Dale Weise, 2019 first, 2020 conditional 3 round pick
Condition: If he re-signs or not

15 Jul 2018 23:17:36
Honestly I’d say no from Montreal but I have no idea what patches will get as a return.

16 Jul 2018 01:27:52
I’d take that if I was the habs!

16 Jul 2018 17:27:56
Patches is a really interesting one. I see trade offers all over the map that I could realistically see as being close. Like mcjesus said, I have no idea either what his real value is. But atleast the habs seem to be showing some patience to get the best for him rather than getting hosed like hoffman.

18 Jul 2018 12:14:51
Lol on the kapanen for Morin trade.

02 Jul 2018 03:10:49
The Flames and Flyers are looking good with Flyers signing Van Riemsdyk and Flames signing Ryan and Czarnik. Flames really need a RW though and Philly could gain a little cap.

To Calgary Flames
• (RW) Wayne Simmonds (3.975M x 1YR)
To Philadelphia Flyers
• (C) Mark Jankowski (RFA)
• (2019) Second-Round Pick
• (G) Jon Gillies (RFA)

Flames Projected Line-Up:

Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Wayne Simmonds
Matthew Tkachuk - Sam Bennett - Elias Lindholm
Austin Czarnik - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik
Garnet Hathaway - Derek Ryan - Troy Brouwer

Mark Giordano - TJ Brodie
Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic
Rasmus Andersson - Michael Stone

Flyers Projected Line-Up:

James Van Riemsdyk - Claude Giroux - Jakub Voracek
Oskar Lindblom - Nolan Patrick - Travis Konecny
Sean Couturier - Mark Jankowski - Michael Raffl
Jordan Weal - Joni Lehtera - Scott Laughton

Ivan Provorov - Andrew MacDonald
Johnny Oduya - Shayne Gostisphere
Brandon Manning - Radko Gudas

02 Jul 2018 03:31:17
Sean Couturier on the 3rd line? I want what you’re on.

02 Jul 2018 03:49:05
no way philly takes this, i can see them doing something involving bennett in return but there's little to no nhl talent going back to philly and a 2nd rounder.

02 Jul 2018 04:49:23
Sean couturier took over Giroux as 1C this year pushing him to LW and put up over 30 goals and almost 80 pts while being a Selke finalist. So what does that prove? That he’s a 3rd line winger! Hahaha.

03 Jul 2018 03:38:09
I agree with cousins, no way the flyers accept this.

29 Jun 2018 18:54:57
With the Flyers definitely out of the Tavares sweepstakes and Tampa Bay being a realistic, albeit less likely possibility, Hextall could take on a toxic contract that ends in 2018 to continue to build his prospect pool:

Philadelphia: Raddysh, Coburn (cap dump), 2019 3rd
Tampa Bay: Rights to Hagg

Tampa gets cap flexibility to sign Tavares and gets a young NHL defenceman with a ceiling of a #4. Philadelphia takes an inflated contract and firms up their RW prospect pool.

***This trade is conditional on Tavares indicating to Yzerman that he wants to sign in Tampa.


Philadelphia: Kulikov, 2019 1st
Winnipeg: Future considerations

29 Jun 2018 20:11:02
That contract would be Callahan not Couburn.

29 Jun 2018 20:24:18
Kulikov and a 1st for what futures? The Jets would want an idea of what this package would get them.

29 Jun 2018 21:45:41
Kulikovs contract isn't that bad (if he can stop getting injured) especially with enstrom gone.

29 Jun 2018 18:54:39
Philadelphia: 2019 1st (VGK), 2020 2nd (DAL), 2019 3rd (WPG), conditional 2020 2nd (PIT)*
Vegas: Simmonds ($3.975MM until 2019)

*only if Simmonds re-signs with Vegas

Vegas gets a for a consistent goal-scorer and locker room leader with the long term cap space in a tax free environment to give Simmonds the deal he deserves. Philadelphia gets draft picks and allows them to re-sign their upcoming RFAs (Konecny, Provorov, Sanheim etc). This would be similar to the Tatar trade before the deadline.

29 Jun 2018 19:28:52
Pretty good, just Vegas trades their first this year which was fine because they finished so well. They’re going to lose a cpl players this year and that performance would be near impossible to repeat anyway. Add to that that their system has 3 good first rounders from last year in it, but isn’t stocked yet like other teams having 4-5 years of firsts playing or close to it. Could be dangerous trading 2 of your first 3 years of 1st rounders as a brand new franchise.

21 Jun 2018 23:02:35
BUF:Morin,19th overall,2019 2nd


22 Jun 2018 03:24:26
Definitely not even close.

22 Jun 2018 07:18:23
I’m a big O’Reilly fan as well vbb’s. Curious to know what you think it would take if the leafs wanted him? If Bozak doesn’t come back, Mathews, O’Reilly and Kadri would be nice. I know defense is the first priority, I’m just wondering value wise because you seem to think O’Reilly is a stud.

22 Jun 2018 14:17:37
He’s a great 2way player but I feel the leafs should use the 7.8 million cap hit he carry’s elsewhere ( RHD ) . Kadri fills the 2c role greatly. Yes O’Rielly is better but I don’t see him having chemistry with players like Marner and Nylander. He’d do best with a winger like Jamie Benn, Blake Wheeler or Phil Kessel. Babcock would love him that’s for sure tho. Buffalo would probably ask for Nylander which I wouldn’t do as a leafs fan. Don’t think Nylander will ever be as good as o’rielly tho.

22 Jun 2018 20:20:51
I agree they need defense. I wanted O’Reilly when Buffalo signed him.

17 Jun 2018 15:31:13
Bruins give:
- Anton khudobin
- nick Holden

Flyers give:
- petr mrazek
- Andrew Mcdonald

Bruins swap good goalie for good goalie but the bruins get the younger one and the flyers have five goalies
And the bruins aren't going to sign Holden back i know he'll be a free agent I just couldn't find a fair trade partner for McDonald but Mcdonald did good this year to add a good depth on defence

16 Jun 2018 06:34:36
Philly Calgary
Hamilton and gawdin for sanheim and konecny

16 Jun 2018 07:05:49
No from calgary

16 Jun 2018 08:52:44
Hhahahahahaha wtf no from calgary.

16 Jun 2018 18:16:52
Doubt philly considers moving Konechny. Think they move Patrick before him.

12 Jun 2018 14:57:18
Karl Alzner D

Milan Lucic LW

Max Pacioretty LW
Shea Weber D
Alex Galchenyuk LW

Jonathan Huberdeau LW
Nick Bjugstad C
Jamie McGinn LW
1st 2019

Carey Price G

Shayne Gostisbehere D
Nolan Patrick C
Scott Laughton C

12 Jun 2018 15:15:04
I kinda like the first trade but still would rather have alzners contract than lucics.

Second trade i'd decline as a habs fan. To many big name moving pieces.

Third trade philidalphia laughs.

12 Jun 2018 16:18:29
3rd trade Montreal laughs. Top 4 dman, unproven rookie (of being capable of being that #1 center for Montreal yet) and a 3rd liner lol.

12 Jun 2018 17:25:53
Chillax. The last trade is a heck no from philly. Carey is turning 31 and has 10.5 mil contract. No team wants that, knowing that his prime is over and that he just had a terrible season with mtl

12 Jun 2018 17:44:10
Ghost played like a top pairing D last season, Nolan Patrick handled 2C very well, and Laughton is worthless lol unless Montreal retained salary Philly laughs.

12 Jun 2018 21:45:24
I hope McJesus is being sarcastic. Ghost was only a couple points shy of out producing the legendary Leon the god Draistle this season.

13 Jun 2018 01:39:46
Yeah mcjesus, I would hope philly says no there. But if a team should overpay for goaltending it’s probably Philly. The way price has looked, and I’m not writing him off completely, but it has to be concerning for a team acquiring him. That’s good youth going the other way and a huge contract coming back. I’d pass if I was philly lol.

11 Jun 2018 11:32:35
Washington will be hard pressed to re-sign key members of their Cup winning team and are obviously in win-now mode. Philadelphia, providing that they don't make any big moves in free agency, have cap space for 2018-2019 only. With Morin out until February, a veteran presence on an expiring contract is ideal.

Washington: Vecchione ($900k RFA in 2019)
Philadelphia: Orpik ($5.5MM until 2019)(cap dump), Lucas Johansen (1/28 in 2016), 2018 3rd

This allows Washington to re-sign Carlson (and Kempny etc) without costing them a roster player. Philadelphia takes Orpik for one year, gets a good defensive prospect, and replenishes its 2018 3rd (Mrazek trade).

Sam Gagner isn’t a free agent. He has two years left on his contract with the Canucks.

11 Jun 2018 17:22:38
JVR won't sign for $4M. leafts would keep him for that.

11 Jun 2018 17:37:51
Sam Gagner makes over $3mill for 2 more years lol you want him to terminate that and sign for $1 mill?

And if JVR was willing to take $4mill for 4 years, he would never be leaving Toronto. They would give him 7 years probably if he would take $4 mill. Reality is he’s probably 6-7 years in the $6-7 mill range.

Sekera for 2nd hahahahaha okay.

11 Jun 2018 17:49:04
But so:
No from Edmonton (not both)
No from Edmonton (cant give away all our prospects)
No from Edmonton (he was a ufa not long ago)
Huge yes from Edmonton
Both free agents signings aren’t realistic at all.
