Detroit is in cap hell.

A few of their bad contracts include;

- Darren Helm
- Justin Abdelkader
- Jimmy Howard
- Jonathan Ericsson
- Johan Franzen

They also have some decent players who make too much, over too much time:

- Niklas Kronwall
- Danny DeKeyser
- Mike Green
- Frans Nielsen


The team needs to understand that they need to rebuild, and start dumping these anchor contracts. By the end of this year, a few of these should be moved; as hard as it may be. Some may need to be traded for other anchor contracts, but those at less term.

Couple of trade ideas:


Carl Soderberg to the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for Justin Abdelkader and a 2018 2nd Round Pick and a 2019 3rd Round Pick,

Both are anchors, but I believe that Abdelkader brings more value than Soderberg. Abdelkader has been good before, but his contract is bad. They are about the same contract dollar value, but Abdelkader has three extra years. that's why the second is involved. If Abdelkader turns himself around this year (something that most likely won't happen with Soderberg), the Avs may be able to retain money and deal him to a willing team) .


Gustav Nyquist and Jonathan Ericsson and Johan Franzen and a 2018 3rd Round Pick to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for Erik Gudbranson and Derek Dorsett.

Gudbranson in exchange for Nyquist and Ericsson and 3rd.
Dorsett in exchange for Franzen.

Detroit unloads a ton of cap (4 for Gustav, 4 for Ericsson, 3 for Johan) and takes only 5 between Gudbranson and Dorsett. Obviously they lose Nyquist, which is big, but they unload a lot of cap. Plus, they get Gudbranson, who they may trade at the deadline for some sort of value. Nyquist is worth more than him, and that is how Ericssons contract balances the weight out.


Frans Nielsen to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Tomas Plekanec and Jacob De La Rose.

Frans Nielsen is OBVIOUSLY much better than Plekanec. However, Nielsen has an ENORMOUS contract ahead. However, due to his skill set and Montreals need for a decent centre (Nielsen scored 40 last year and could bounce up to 50). Trading him now would be the best bet for Detroit, as he is not considered to be an anchor of a contract. If they were to keep him, his contract may only get worse and worse. By making this deal, Montreal takes an incredible risk, as they bank on Nielsen staying healthy and good for at least the next three-four seasons.


Mike Green and Darren Helm to the Las Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for Luca Sbisa and a 2018 5th Round Pick.

Green is a better dman than Sbisa, however, Helm WILL become a cap dump within his current contract. Green could be traded for a 1st at the deadline (if he produces), so that will make the trade worth it for Vegas. Sbisa isn't much honestly, but he may get like a 3rd/ 4th at the deadline.


Idk. Something needs to give for Detroit. Are one or two of these deals plausible? Cause I do know that they all won't happen. But a few ARE possible. Idk.

28 Aug 2017 21:53:36
I see the trade with montreal possible, but idk what Nielsens contract looks like. but the other 3 trades are with teams that are in somewhat the same position as Detroit in terms of rebuilding, why would they want to take on bad contracts like these?

28 Aug 2017 23:36:06
Wow no from Vancouver, we don't want useless players in Ericsson and Franzen, just stop doing Canucks trades please. Also Soderberg is as much of a cap dump as abdelkader at this point, kinda useless trade.

30 Aug 2017 16:04:21
Well, for starters Johan is going on LTIR every year so you aren't getting anything for him and he's not really a hit on cap. For a rebuilding team, you don't really want to be giving up assets to unload bad contracts, in fact its likely the opposite. Look at what Arizona has been able to do. The beauty of rebuilding is you can wait out the bad deals because you don't need to gve anyone big raises, rebuilding teams shouldn't be giving up 2nds to dump a few extra years on a deal, wait to move the deal until you have to and wear down the negative value.

18 Aug 2017 18:10:01
3 Team trade:

Stl: Gets Hellebuyc
Fla: Gets Allen
Winny: Gets Matheson

18 Aug 2017 21:28:24
Hahaha. STL say no? Lmao. Who do they get?!

18 Aug 2017 21:30:20
This one might just prove you are in fact MontrealsFinests like 6th account
Drunk posting again, At least it's a Friday afternoon this time! I'll give ya that. Lol.

18 Aug 2017 23:07:31
And now Florida has Luongo, Reimer and Allen.
Perfectly thought out.

Just seen that STL gets Helly, my bad. That's a big no from STL.

16 Aug 2017 18:45:14
Bored @ work, just a thought

Leafs - Blues trade

Leafs trade - JVR maybe ad a 3rd or a mid level prospect
Blues trade - Jordan Schmaltz plus a 2nd round pick

16 Aug 2017 19:40:51
Think Toronto would want a little more, maybe not?

17 Aug 2017 02:22:36
Wow excellent insight McJesus lol.

17 Aug 2017 04:19:31
Fair enough.

14 Aug 2017 00:44:54
Mtl: Gallagher, 2d round
Edm: RNH

I added a 2 rd just in case u guys say no way but honestly since RNH is a bust a Gallagher a winger... Chiarelli would do it

14 Aug 2017 03:41:10
RNH is a busy? Wow! Pls think before you post! Thanks.

14 Aug 2017 15:15:18
If he's a bust, Then why do you want to trade for him?

14 Aug 2017 16:30:27
RNH is not a bust.
However i don't think the value between gallager and RNH is that far off, the second should make it close. I'm thinking the problem is that centers are in high demand right now and could probably get a better offer from somewhere else. But i don't think that the value is that far off.

14 Aug 2017 16:59:20
I agree with the Turkey.
People calling RNH a bust is jus rediculous. nope, he's not going to get ya 80 points. or 30+ goals. he's not in the same class as McDavid, Mathews ect. but he's not a Daigle, Lawton or Wickenhieser or Stefan either.
RNH is a solid 2 way center, does the little things right. Maybe on a different team, he could be a 70 point center as there number one. loke a 25 goal 45 assist kinda thing.

14 Aug 2017 17:43:34
For me RNH is kinda a bust just because he was first overall.

15 Aug 2017 00:12:18
If you think all first overalls should be elite superstars just because they were selected first overall, You're an idiot. Sorry.

Probably think just because you're drafted in the first round you should be amazing awesome, too. So dumb.

13 Aug 2017 03:56:38
This might just happen:

Mtl: Gallagher- Galchenyuk- Juulsen- 2dround

Edm: Draisaitl- RNH- Beck- 3dround

Honestly this would be also fair for Edm cus they definitely need Wingers since Chucky is a Lw and they get also Juulsen cus they don't have any top 4 RHD prospects

For mtl no need to tell why they should do this

13 Aug 2017 05:48:57
wow this really may just happen.

13 Aug 2017 06:51:21
this might just happen:

mtl: galchenyuk + drouin + patches + claude julien + twenty gatorades

edm: jussi jokinen + mark letestu + twenty dollars.

wowow so realistic omg.

13 Aug 2017 15:53:06
Omg, this is sooooo legit :D.

14 Aug 2017 03:42:04
Is keyhabs are habs fan? Hmmmm.

15 Aug 2017 01:45:18
This deffinetly won't happen.

16 Aug 2017 21:53:28
Not the worst trade proposal I've ever seen, but closdp.

07 Aug 2017 15:13:44
St Louis: Paul Stastny

Montreal: Paul Byron + 2nd round pick + Brandon Davidson

07 Aug 2017 23:24:54
Are u out of your mind.

08 Aug 2017 00:09:31
Not sure why Blue's do this.

They aren't going into rebuild, they may be retooling their roster. I don't think trading Statsny is going to be apart of that unless they find the number 1 C I think they want.

Also I don't think the pieces Montreal sends here helps the Blues. Davidson is counter-productive to their deep D-core. Byron doesn't help their Center depth and the 2nd isn't spectacular.

I just see the Blues not touching this, at least not right now. Maybe looking towards the trade deadline and seeing where their at then. Still not the pieces the Blues would want as well.

08 Aug 2017 00:13:00
Forgot he is a rental, so the value here may be close. The pieces and decision to trade him right now may not be what Blues want until trade deadline. If they are in playoffs, they may keep him or pull what they did in Shattenkirk.

08 Aug 2017 02:05:25
I don't see blues doing this trade. What's in for them. Stats by would require at minimum a first.

08 Aug 2017 15:45:23
No from mtl for 7 million we can get an actual number one centet.

08 Aug 2017 16:31:07
Id prefer Byron over Stastny. wow is he overrated.

08 Aug 2017 21:07:06
Stastny is actually a pretty good player. But like a lot of players now he is grossly overpaid.

08 Aug 2017 21:25:07
Name a few GoldenShowers.
What legit center can you get right now for $7M?

09 Aug 2017 01:17:49

Tyler seguin

There's two.

09 Aug 2017 05:09:00
The black alpaca those two guys are on the block? I wasn't aware of that lol.

09 Aug 2017 12:55:23
You can get pretty much anybody for a huge overpayment. The words on the block never came up.

09 Aug 2017 15:43:24
They are saying Seguin next contract is 9-10 miles easy.

09 Aug 2017 16:13:23
When someone says "no, for $7M we can get an actual number one center". That implies there's other options out there for that price tag besides the one discussed (Stastny, Who by the way I don't think is available right now, Possibly at deadline if Blues are out of a playoff spot)
Schiffle and Seguin are definitely not legit options.
Anyways, I'm still curious who the options are.

10 Aug 2017 11:09:40
Jason Spezza, Claude Giroux. And for half that salary we can get Bjug who is a second line center just like Stasny.

06 Aug 2017 19:30:46
blue - Paul Statney

Habs - Carr and a 2ND PICK

The winning habits are saying blues would Like to unload Paul Statney salary cap, and thinks Bergie could Build a trade using Carr and another prospects player for Statney

07 Aug 2017 01:13:54
Greg, I wouldn't wanna do that. he's not a number one center, often injured and has one of the worst contracts out there.

07 Aug 2017 11:40:20
I was just pickup what, the winning Habit was saying, they think this great wanted to see what you'll thinks about this trade.

07 Aug 2017 11:55:52
HE'd be a rental tho. he's a 50 point guy - tops on the habs. I think Habs take this honestly.

07 Aug 2017 16:15:47
Is it his last year of this contract? Then maybe. where is Colt? He knows. lol.

07 Aug 2017 16:22:27
Yes it's his last year 7 mil cap hit.

07 Aug 2017 17:59:47
Sosa you're getting him for next to nothing. Habs take that and run all day.

07 Aug 2017 22:27:17
Habs take it and run.

08 Aug 2017 01:11:24
Easy win for habs.

08 Aug 2017 01:11:51
Ya, just didn't know what his term was. if only a year then for sure guys.

08 Aug 2017 04:19:21
Sosa can you explain why the bluse would do this. I can't think of one. Unless one of their young centers break out but I don't think they will.

08 Aug 2017 04:43:16
The logic behind the blues doing this would be to clear cap space. Not saying they would but that would be one reason, quite possibly the only reason.

08 Aug 2017 15:51:52
Just checked capfriendly blues have 2.5mil in cap and a full 23 man roster. If I'm correct that would equal about 6 to 7 mil at trade deadline. They have 9 mil coming off end of this year and another 10 the following. With a bunch of kids I don't think cap would be the issue. Maybe if they suffered a few key losses and we're not going to make playoffs I could see them asking for first and prospect maybe retain a bit.

08 Aug 2017 16:04:01
Yeah I know. I never said it was a good reason lol.

08 Aug 2017 16:38:28
Well. its Paul Stastny. A 7 million 2nd line center. Blues can keep him Rinkrat. I really don't care if we got him or not, and could care less why Blues would do this. if he only has 1 year left and the Blues have the cap numbers they have, then best to jus keep him and trade to him to highest bidder come deadline. he will be coveted for teams making a cup run.

26 Jul 2017 14:38:06
Edm draistl and Lucic
Mont gally pleckanek mccarron 2018 1st 2019 2nd

Mont gets number 1 centre they need

Edm rids them self of lucic contract that hamper them down the road plecky pretty much just to make money work 3rd line centre ufa end of year. Edm still have a good number 2 centre in rnh gally gives them more fire power up front and then picks to put more in the system.

26 Jul 2017 15:18:17
That's so far off its sad.

26 Jul 2017 15:29:33
Only reason u say this is long term money wise this really helps the oilers they are gunna be cash strapped real soon and anyway u get rid of Lucic contract u have to.

26 Jul 2017 15:39:59
So sad.
And this might not even be a troll, That's the sad part.

26 Jul 2017 15:59:48
This is really bad.

26 Jul 2017 16:01:06
Well i'm all for it! . not even close though.

26 Jul 2017 17:35:15
As a habs fan let me apologize for this.

26 Jul 2017 19:32:12
The Oilers will be fine cap wise. They will probably have to trade Nuge after this season tho because of cap issues. But then they will be fine.
The only thing in the near future (after they resign Drai) is Talbot might be in for a big contract, he only has two years left on his current contract.
But after next season when they trade Nuge and his $6M, believe it or not, they will be fine.
They might need to trade a player or two away because of a possible cap issue but any good team has that "problem". It's a good problem to have and they now have depth to step in. Good teams have new young cheap talent ready to step up at anytime. Puljujarvi, Yamamoto, Benson, Bear, Jones. These are all guys you could see in the next three years play good roles for cheap.
If you think they need to trade away Drai and Lucic for garbage like that, You're clueless Absolutely clueless.

26 Jul 2017 19:37:20
I don't know why people say number 1 centres are hard to get. apparently Ottawa can get eichel and habs can get draisatl for a handful of pieces that will never be a quarter as good as either of them. Can't wait till leafs trade Matthews to solve minnesotas #1 centre problem and get spurgeon and a cpl picks back.

27 Jul 2017 03:06:04
delusional habs fans are the best.

wish finest would come back tho.

27 Jul 2017 14:38:15
Lol MIke you trolling or did you hit your head this offseason?

27 Jul 2017 14:41:41
Join fantasy next season then.

27 Jul 2017 15:27:38
Trolling I don't like either teams.

27 Jul 2017 15:41:43
Ah F$&@. Should have known this was a troll. I feel like an idiot for not realizing Lol.

21 Jul 2017 18:24:15
STL and Edm are interested in Iggy. Edm being more interested of the two teams at the moment.

21 Jul 2017 18:48:40
Man iggy is slow as rubbish wouldn't want him as a blues fan. Had enough passengers over the last few years. Why get another one.

21 Jul 2017 19:43:53
Trader. Are you Colt?

21 Jul 2017 19:45:20
And yes, I agree with ya to an extent.
I would take him on my team for $1M for 1 year to play bottom six. He would be so valuable in most rooms for leadership alone and still will bring it his all every game. Even tho I have never liked the Flames I have loved the way Iggy plays. But he has slowed down.

21 Jul 2017 21:27:28
He would have to know his role from the start, a bottom six player to lead the younger players and show them the way. Maybe get out on a second PP unit for his shot. But it would have to be understood that he isn't there to take someone's spot and even if he has a hot week with 3-4 goals, the plan doesn't change. If he can accept that, why not.

21 Jul 2017 22:53:37
I wonder if his ego would allow.

22 Jul 2017 13:56:39
Brings Leadership, Is physical, Still a goat on the PP and is a presence every time he's on the ice. Feet gave out tho but he has everything else.

22 Jul 2017 16:42:55
Don't think Iggy has a big ego. Met him years ago through a buddy of mine thay was his teammate on Kamloops Blazers. really humble good guy. I think he would be great on Oilers. brings everything most of you other guys said. so why not. at a mill or even 2 max would be money well spent.

22 Jul 2017 17:05:32
Iggy doesn't have a huge ego. Never has. Super nice down to earth guy. Met him at a fruit stand in the Okanagan BC last summer. He spends a lot of time there. Took a few minutes out of his day to talk to me and my brother. Super super nice guy. Have heard so many good stories out of Calgary over the years too.
My older brother was the pro at Banff Spring golf course for ten years and the Calgary Flames would come play all the time. Lots of players would ask for deals while Iggy just hung out in the back of the line and when time to pay never once asked for anything. And was always super super nice my brother said. He's never had an ego.

22 Jul 2017 19:40:41
The guy is slower now but he can still rip the puck. Add to some RW depth and get a legitimate one timer for mcdavid to feed wow look out.

23 Jul 2017 14:32:28
Colt good to have you back buddy.

23 Jul 2017 20:24:12
Mcjesus you can have him.

20 Jul 2017 23:00:12
Leafs - Blues Trade

Just a thought not a blockbuster by far.

Leafs Trade - Leivo - Fehr 2nd 2018
Blues Trade - Gunnersson - Schmaltz

Blues need wingers
Leafs need to upgrade their D Schmaltz is a RHD prospect. Money is almost even in the trade.

20 Jul 2017 23:49:00
Leivo and Fehr aren't that great.

21 Jul 2017 01:11:37
In what world does St. Louis do that though?

21 Jul 2017 01:11:57
Schmaltz put up 36 points first year in ahl and had 25 pts in 42 games last year. He is project at top 4 and possibly top 2 offens I've dman great skater fast too. Not trading he for pooo.

21 Jul 2017 01:12:32
More than welcome to trade gunners on for a 2nd.

22 Jul 2017 04:42:09
Leivo is gunna be good trust me.

22 Jul 2017 21:33:54
OK well keep him blues have better prospects.

Also on side not blues currently have the following left wingers

Swartz, fabbri, steen, berglund, sanford, magnus prv,

Their is no place for another rw. Blues only true need is a #1 center. They just are not available. It would cost to much to fill that hole. Blues have some promising young guys fabbri, barbashev, sanford, and three really promising prospects, tage thompson, Jordan kyrou, oscar sundqvist and Robert Thomas. On top of all of that blues aquire schenn, he will be starting out at center. Blues are way better this year than last.

18 Jul 2017 02:18:41
OTT: Brassard, 1st, 4th
STL: Schwartz

Hoffman - Pageau - Stone
Schwartz - Turris - Ryan
MacArthur - Smith - Dzingel
Pyatt - Thompson - White

Steen - Stastny - Tarasenko
Fabbri - Brassard - Schenn
Barbashev - Sobotka - Jaskin
Paajarvi - Brodziak - Bennett

18 Jul 2017 04:10:48
Lol ST-Louis would gladly accept that.

18 Jul 2017 05:03:37
That's a solid no. A 40 pt 29 year old center with 2 years left and a late first rnd pick for schwartz a 25 year old power forward who put up 55 pts and in a recovery year from ankle surgery and is under contract for next 4 years.

Blues say he'll no lol.

18 Jul 2017 06:07:27
Yeah uh easy no from St. Louis.

23 Aug 2017 23:33:36
What line burrows playing on?

10 jul 2017 18:43:20
blues: draisaitl

oilers: parayko, fabbri

10 Jul 2017 20:32:43
Maybe add like a 2nd from STL.

10 Jul 2017 21:58:29
They wouldn't even trade Parayko straight up for Draisaitl why would you think they would just throw in Fabbri as a plus. LOL Really BAD PROP.

11 Jul 2017 00:30:10
leon and senko would be dirty.

11 Jul 2017 01:49:37
TradeBro Are you kidding they would definitely trade parayko for Draisaitl.

11 Jul 2017 02:57:18
Blues fans are not willing to part with parayko for anything less than mathews. This is re-iterated all across the hockey boards. Just saying dog armstrong would have a mutiny on his hands.

11 Jul 2017 14:07:39
I see paraykos value as a monster RHD that can skate and move a puck. He's very close to a cornerstone, but if there was a trade you could move a guy like him for it's a big #1 centreman. The only way it happens though is if both have pre arranged contracts in their new cities. Neither side is making this trade just to have to negotiate with a new player. If one comes to terms and the other doesn't, it's career suicide for that GM.

11 Jul 2017 19:04:43
Once again you say #1 centerman. Drais hasn't not proven himself as such. He plays wing with mcdavid. There is a difference between playing the wing for best player in league and being a number 1#center in the league. Just like saying nylander is a #1c they are not do they have potentiAL to be yes, have they proven no.

12 Jul 2017 01:48:05
I'd consider Paryanko for Mathews if the leafs had another 1c. Paryanko will be a faster more offensively gifted shea Weber.

12 Jul 2017 01:16:50
Leon is the better player here need a lot more then parayko to peel him from these oilers.

12 Jul 2017 05:33:05
Oilfan that's the problem. Blues fans are not suggesting this trade. They are all from the oiler fan base. Also big rhd #1 dmen are worth more than wingers. Drais will not have the same numbers once he leaves McDavid's wing.

Blues fans are not wanting to trade parayko for anything less than a proven #1c. Not for an Un proven center who currently plays wing and not for some package. Parayko is going to sign long term with blues and eventually take over for petro.

12 Jul 2017 05:41:32
Also on a side note getting schenn has stabilized the center position. Blues have vladimir ivan barbashev, and berglund to take over third line. robbie fabbri, tage thompson, Jordan kyrou, zach sandford, Robert Thomas who all have a chance to become good centers. Blues are no longer struggling for a center. Why make a hole in their defense for a guy who puts up great numbers with best center in league not as a center himself. Leafs offer nylander oilers offer drais and neither played a lick of center lol.

03 Jul 2017 02:17:26
Couple of notes.

Kruger to LV for free. Like the move from LV's perspective they get a decent 3rd liner (yes, he is overpaid) and also get a second (via TVR) .

Price gets his megadeal, 10.5 per/ 8 years. Love the deal for Montreal honestly. Without Price, this team drops like an anchor to the bottom of the sea. He's making the same money as Toews (imo, Price>>>Toews), and is only 0.5 million more expensive than Kopitar, a guy who had an awful year, and imo, doesn't deserve 10 million.

Marleau to the Leafs, 6 million per/ 3 years. Don't care about the dollar figure, until i factored in the term. I relatively couldn't care if Marleau was making 8 million / 2 years, I just wished it was 2 years. The reason for the worry over the term, Matthews and Marner. Both have two years left on their ELC's. that's why I don't understand Marleau for 3. Maybe he's making less than what JVR would have made? I don't know. But I liked the deal at first, but i do not like the term.

Kuznetsov for 7.6/ 8 years. His bird celly is goofy and all, but at the end of the day, the guy can play hockey. This deal is really good, especially considering last year was a down year for Kuzy. This basically allows the Caps to have a Russian dynamo take over once Ovie leaves. Raises a concern for the Preds however, how much is Ryan Johansen going to make? he's not going to take any less than Kuzy, and I could see him getting 8 million/ 8.

And finally, Johansson traded from the Caps to the Devs. For a second and a third. Idk how Ryan Reaves got a bigger haul than Johansson. But I think this is a terrible move by the Caps. You could have bought out Orpik, traded Niskanen, traded Eller, etc, etc. Johansson was a productive, cheap player, who just had 58 points. Steal for the Devs, Johansson will look great alongside Hall/ Hischier/ Palmieri/ Zacha/ McLeod. Hey. The Devils actually have a nice YOUNG group going into next year. Cool.

03 Jul 2017 08:39:07
how can you love the price deal?

it's crazy.
always injured.

03 Jul 2017 08:41:54
Agree that the devils did a good job bolstering their offense over the last 2 years, but the defense still looks quite bad.

03 Jul 2017 16:51:01
Agree with TB3 he'll be 38 when his contract ends and it screams Loulongo to me. Carey is currently a top 3 goalie in the NHL but he is very injury prone. He could very quickly start to Decline.

Try and find a way to get rid of Bouma & Stajan. Maybe Carolina takes Stajan, Montreal takes Bouma for a low pick

27 Jun 2017 18:20:55
i think stl would take a pick no need for bad players coming back to them.

Detroit is going to want a 1st with anderson to accept that deal.

27 Jun 2017 19:10:00
Yak is about to be a UFA. Detroit would be looking to dump Nyquists contract.

27 Jun 2017 19:11:30
Calgary should sign yakapov on July 1st. And we can watch the oiler fans cry when he gets 60 point playing with johnny and monahan.

27 Jun 2017 20:57:10
I wouldn't call Nyqvist a dump just yet. Should the lightning just let Palat go jbs?

27 Jun 2017 21:31:43
Lol if he can't get points with McDavid, what makes you think he will get points with them.

27 Jun 2017 23:33:39
Yak wasn't given a qualify offer, he'll be ufa in a couple days.

28 Jun 2017 04:34:50
Maybe Rasmussen and a conditional first (condition he has to hit a certain point and goal totals) for Nyqvist and a 3rd. Detroit really needs to move on from this guy.

28 Jun 2017 05:27:45
Detroit fans have been calling Nyquist a disappointment since his extension. He never took the next step and my have even regressed. He may have almost had as many points as Palat. But Palat is a premier defender as well and does a lot that doesn't show up on the score sheet (look at how players do with him on the ice vs without) . Nyquist not so much. I don't think Nyquist gets a first alone right now.

28 Jun 2017 06:28:15
You're right that Nyquist has regressed but I believe he is still a top 6 forward, not a dump. I think the whole Detroit team has regressed. A change of scenery would be nice for him. I was just throwing Palat's name out there, he is very good defensively but injuries are slowing him down.

28 Jun 2017 12:44:59
Not Today are you thinking someone else? Palat missed 20 games two years ago but only 7 last year. The year he missed 20 was only season he got under 50 points. Last year was a bit lower than first two but the whole team sucked i think Johnson is slowing down possibly due to injury much more than Palat.

28 Jun 2017 20:37:23
I was thinking Palat. I've had him in my fantasy pool 2 years in a row, seemed like he was always hurt.

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 20:45:26
Apparently Calgary has sent an offer for Hamonic and considering Hamonic almost landed in Calgary before he rescinded his trade request last year I got a couple trades. Also Galchenyuk is on the block.

Trade #1

• R.Andersson
• 16th Overall
• rights to Adam Fox
• M.Stajan (cap)
• A.Galchenyuk

Trade #2

• T.Brouwer
• M.Phillips
• O.Kylington
• 2nd round pick
New York:
• T.Hamonic

Trade #3:

• M.Klimchuk
• 3rd round pick
St Louis:
• N.Yakupov




23 Jun 2017 21:46:20
Dream on bud the first trade is horrible basically ahl players and a low pick in the worst draft for a young 30 goals center😂😂😂😂.

23 Jun 2017 21:51:53
Troy Brouwer and ahl players for hamonic😂😂😂😂 Troy Brouwer has 3 years left at 4.5 mill and he had like 15 points last year a team won't take his contract for even a low 1st round.

23 Jun 2017 21:46:42
Actually all the trades are horrible.

24 Jun 2017 14:38:37
That does not get u Hamonic.

24 Jun 2017 16:14:30
Why does Calgary give up so much in these trades? Unnecessary.

23 Jun 2017 09:34:03
Trade #1
• H.Fleury
• T.Teravainen
• 12th Overall
• A.Galchenyuk

Trade #2
• N.Hanifin
• R.McKeown
• 3rd round pick
• M.Duchene

Trade #3
• 2nd round pick
St Louis:
• N.Yakupov

Trade #4
• J.Staal
• A.Saarela
• S.Bennett
• T.Brouwer

Sign Oduya, Shattenkirk

Aho - Duchene - Lindholm
Skinner - Galchenyuk - Yakupov
Nordstrom - Bennett - Stempniak
McClement - Ryan - Brouwer

Slavin - Faulk
Oduya - Shattenkirk
Van Riemsdyk - Pesce

23 Jun 2017 12:48:30
No way from Carolina
Yakupov barely got a third last time - not worth a second
Contract based Calgary says yes, but I don't know enough about Saarela.

23 Jun 2017 12:51:41
First trade is absolutely terrible, second one is even worse, alone hanifin is an overpayment for duchene and you even add another d-prospect and a third? `
Third one would work an the last one I don't know if calgary would part ways with bennett for Staal.

23 Jun 2017 13:29:34
Hannifin isn't going anywhere and if he was, one for one for another similar age superstar in the making of a different need ( D for F)

23 Jun 2017 16:09:36
Lol you just disassembled their whole team what.

21 Jun 2017 06:44:06
Montreal Canadiens Plans 2017/ 18

1st Round Pick + Prospect to Vegas to take Plekanec.

Galchenyuk to NYI for Hamonic.

McCarron + Davidson to ARI for Richardson.

Martinsen to STL for Yakupov

Sign Marchessault. (4mil x 4yrs)
Sign Hanzal. (4mil x 2yrs)

Pacioretty - Marchessault - Drouin
Lekhonen - Hanzal - Gallagher
Yakupov - Richardson - Shaw
Byron - Danault - Mitchell

Emelin - Weber
Markov - Hamonic
Benn - Petry

21 Jun 2017 07:18:30
You're horrible.

Hamonic > Galchenyuk
McCarron + Davidson> Richardson
Yakupov > Martinsen.

Lol. Marchessault as a first line center is hilarious
Emelin playing top 2 is even funnier.

21 Jun 2017 12:53:25
Isnt Marchessault still under contract?

21 Jun 2017 15:02:31
Yes marchesesult has another year left #1. he's coming off a 30 goal year and exposed to Vegas. If Habs want him, they will have to trade Vegas for him. But do you think it's smart to trade for a 26 year old guy, and extend him 4 years, with one good year and his value at an all time high? Kinda seems like setting yourself up for dissapointment. 5'9 170 pound waiver wire a year ago isn't the solution to montreals #1 centre problems lol.

21 Jun 2017 15:22:39
I don't get why people undervalue Galchenyuk so much lol last year he was so overrated on this site

21 Jun 2017 17:06:45
Galchenyuk>Hamonic chill whoever says Hamonic>Galchenyuk has a problem.

21 Jun 2017 17:06:57
But all the trades were a joke.

21 Jun 2017 19:47:39
1st round pick + a prospect, really. The Habs can't afford to trade more prospects.

21 Jun 2017 23:08:36
enough with these dumb montreal rumours nobody wants these montreal players.

20 Jun 2017 18:35:13
With Montreal Trading Sergachev for Drouin and trading Beaulieu as well (both being LHD) I wonder if the Blues would Part with Jake Walman Something like

MON- Galchenyuk + 2nd 2018

STL -Walman + 1st 27OA.

20 Jun 2017 18:52:42
I don't know anything about Walman.
Im going to say No, jus to the fact that this team is trying to win now and needs someone to step in immediately to help make this team a contender. i'm not even sure they make the playoffs at this point.

20 Jun 2017 19:01:49
However, there is a certain young Blues Dman we could negotiate a trade with involving Galchenyuk. maybe this will bring Tankie out of hiding. Lol.

20 Jun 2017 19:45:09
Montreal want more of an NHL ready defenceman and also galchenyuk is worth way more than a medium prospect and a really late 1st round on an horrible draft year.

20 Jun 2017 19:55:42
St. Louis trades: Vince dunn, tage Thompson, 1st

Montreal trades: galchenyuk, 2nd.

20 Jun 2017 20:44:34

Im sure STL will decline that counter proposal.

20 Jun 2017 20:52:47
Yeah you're right but Montreal will decline the first one.

20 Jun 2017 21:42:28
So who do you all think is on Montreal's radar. NHL ready, Top4 and available? Shattenkirk, ALZNER, ect.

20 Jun 2017 23:21:56
Im reading about Scandella. not sure what the price would be.
I hope not Shattenkirk. he's meh, not all that high on him. and will cost way to much.

21 Jun 2017 00:35:41
Scandella would be a good addition if Vegas picks him and we trade them like a 1st, 2nd for him and also make them pick Plekanec or something.

21 Jun 2017 02:12:52
Walman is young promising blue liner, real bright future for him. SHOuld be NHL ready, with all said he doesn't get Chucky yet. No from Habs.

15 Jun 2017 04:20:17
