Leafs/ sens won’t happen just for fun

Tor. Marner Timothy liljergren bracco 25 overall 2nd 4th next year

Ott. Karlson

Leafs would have to over pay ott.

I’m not paying a winger the money marner could want.

22 Jun 2018 23:31:07
Not a chance lol marner on his own for Karlsson wouldn’t do it, but wouldn’t be that far off. Then add last years 1st, this years 1st, a b prospect and another pick haha where do you think Ottawa’s bargaining power comes from? He’s a great player, with one year left and has said he doesn’t want to be there.

22 Jun 2018 23:32:31
Yah not even close Marner is going no where. Wouldn’t trade him straight up for Karlsson Dubas wouldn’t either.

23 Jun 2018 05:38:50
Like you said leafs would have to over pay and this is nowhere near enough let alone an overpayment.

Vbbvbb go to sleep kid you're getting more delusional than normal.

23 Jun 2018 07:34:50
Rambo, you're a joke.

23 Jun 2018 11:49:01
Agreed Marner is a Potential 100 Point player on a ELC who may be the most promising U25 winger in the NHL along with Kucherov, Pasternak and Guadreau.

23 Jun 2018 12:14:12
Yeah don't see the Leafs doing this.

I think the Sens are better off extending Karlsson at this point. The return is not going to meet Dorion's/ Senators fans expectations, and given that Colorado now owns their 2019 first pick he's worth more to Ottawa than he is to any other teams.

22 Jun 2018 08:20:18
Colorado trades: Barrie

Toronto trades: Nylander


22 Jun 2018 13:59:14
Not a bad idea, I just think Nylander is scratching the surface of what he can be, barrie is what he is. He’s a good player and fits our need, so might have to over pay a bit. But I think I’d want something else coming back, could just be greed though. Also I believe Dubas is going to try to sign tavares (still a long shot obviously) and if he does, Nylander will be traded very soon after for D help.

22 Jun 2018 15:57:02
I would really doubt that JT goes to Toronto. I'm starting to think he is going to stay put.

22 Jun 2018 16:09:24
He’s either staying, going to T. O or San Jose.

22 Jun 2018 17:40:50
Yeah I’m not saying he will. But I do believe IF he leaves NYI, then Toronto has as good of chance as 2-3 other teams on a short list. It’s a good city, family close by, good team on the rise, nearly unlimited resources for facilities, nice home arena and practise rink, stable management and coach. Checks all the boxes. History says he stays, but if he leaves, I like our chances. Matthews/ tavares/ Kadri down the middle could be dominant and Centre depth can offset a need for high end defense that we don’t have (as proven by penguins)

22 Jun 2018 19:53:21
I think cap would be an issue. I live just outside of TO and really don't think he would sign here. If he moves, he goes somewhere that he would be the face of the franchise and make a lot of extra money on endorsements.

22 Jun 2018 21:27:18
He could be as marketed as he wants in Toronto. There’s so much opportunity for corporate sponsors wanting to attatch themselves to this version of the up and coming leafs that Matthews and marner couldn’t possibly take it all on. It’s not like other big cities with multiple league franchises like NY or something. Leafs players don’t have to battle blue jays and raptors for endorsements like rangers have to with Yankees and Giants etc. It’s leafs above all else here. Kessel didn’t want any of that stuff, so he didn’t take it on, but it was all there for him if he wanted it.

22 Jun 2018 22:12:22
He’d make the most from Endorsements from T. O it’s the largest market in the NHL if he signs there the fans would go crazy and he’d be known as a hero. It’s his home town and they definitely have the cap to sign all 4 but it’d probably be smart to trade Nylander if he signs. I did the math and it would work under the cap leaving around 4 million if they can sign the 4 for around 36 million Marner+ Nylander=12 million Mathews+Tavares=22 million.

23 Jun 2018 19:04:25
Colorado adds just a bit.

21 Jun 2018 22:38:14
To Toronto - Dougie Hamilton

To Calgary - William Nylander, 25th overall and Bracco.

22 Jun 2018 01:37:20
That’s a lot for Dougie if flames don’t take that jeez.

22 Jun 2018 01:38:47
Would want a more reliable dman then Hamilton for Nylander. Would rather add a lot and go after Eklblad.

22 Jun 2018 03:43:17
Nylander alone would be enough, if not more than Hamilton.

20 Jun 2018 03:27:48
Tor: Gardiner; fourth; neilson

Oil: Klefbom.

20 Jun 2018 10:25:36
Want a better if oilers trade klefbom.

20 Jun 2018 15:28:18
Not saying it’s a bad deal value wise because outside Gardiner, leafs aren’t giving much at all. But I just don’t see the point. He’s only 3 years younger, still shoots left, makes the same money. Could be better defensively, but way below Gardiner offensively. Only advantage would be the added term at a decent cap number. But the fact that Gardiner is done after this season is a positive I think for the leafs, with Karlsson and doughty free agent RHD, and OEL still not officially signed on the Left side. It leaves options open at least.

20 Jun 2018 23:42:13
No point from Edmonton. Rather keep Klef unless i was getting a solid winger or a RHD exchange

19 Jun 2018 21:06:47
cgy:brodie stone mangiapane
tor: nylander, hyman

cgy: ferland bennet

cgy:gillies fox 4th
nyr: bostons 1st.

19 Jun 2018 22:47:23
If you combined all the peices in all 3 trades from Calgary and offered it for Nylander the leafs would still not consider.

19 Jun 2018 22:58:13
Lol no from Toronto. Brodie and some throw aways for Nylander AND Hyman? Get real lol.

20 Jun 2018 04:09:11
@Franchise billy isn’t that term considered unacceptable now days? Regardless you’re a biased flames fan who obviously has no input to create an argument against my statement so I’ll teach you what hockey is you have a lot to learn.

First of all Nylander is an Elite 20 year old RW who is exactly what the flames need. He’s very likely 70-80 point player consitently in his prime

What I said was clearly an exaggeration but I’ll break down this deal



Bodie, Fox, Stone, Mangiapane, Ferland, Bennet, Gilles and a 4th.


Player Toronto would want- Bodie, Fox and Bennet

The rest while may be valuable to the flames organization contribute absolutely nothing for the leafs.

Fox is probably going to test UFA like Kevin Hayes, Jimmy Hayes and other college players that chose that route.

Bennet is a player I personally love I think he’ll develop into a Derrick Brassard type but his value is at an all time low

Bodie is coming off a terrible season and his value is also at an all time low IMO I believe he’ll fall off the radar much like Jack Johnson. Still a decent piece tho.

While the value may be there and possibly even be in Toronto’s favour but leafs do not take it.

20 Jun 2018 05:11:42
Pretty well put by vbb actually. You don’t trade a guy like Nylander for spare parts. You trade him for an equal value player, hopefully in the same age bracket (20-24) in a more needed position. A hurricanes-leafs deal could be done. Something around Nylander for hanifin maybe because canes need scoring and have lots of young D and leafs need D with an abundance of wingers. But to trade a guy with his skill and potential for that? And have Hyman in there too? He’s a really good penalty killer who never takes a shift off, put up 40 pts (playing with Matthews obviously helps that) and is signed for 2.25 mill for 4 years. That’s a valuable piece too.

20 Jun 2018 06:35:49
Ya but Nylander > Brodie, Fox & Bennett? c'mon there's a lot of quality there. Young D Prospect, Top 4 Dman, a young former 4th overall pick. don't tell me Toronto doesn't take that.

20 Jun 2018 11:28:53
Yeahhhhhhhh Torornot doesnt.

We spent a lot of time building up this foundation. We aren't trading Nylander for ‘pieces’ were trading him for ‘one solid piece’: (dman; hamilton, hanifin, etc), whild adding a bit.

20 Jun 2018 15:38:49
Agreed with top shelf would you trade Guadreau for Gardiner, Kadri and Dermotte? That’s also a way better package then the 3 you offered.

20 Jun 2018 15:57:04
@franchisebilly, yeah, I’m telling you leafs wouldn’t take that for nylander. But the trade also has hyman going. Hyman is a better player than Bennet currently, still young and signed cheap. Bennett has a higher ceiling if he ever reaches it, I’m not denying that. But today, you’re a better team with hyman on the ice than Bennett. Call them even for simplification. That leaves Brodie and fox for nylander?! No thanks. Willy goes for a big upgrade on D, which Brodie just isn’t. He’s a good Dman. We have 3 good Dmen (Gardiner, Rielly, zaitsev) and a young guy who might be really good in Dermott.

20 Jun 2018 23:46:13
I see your points. A more fair trade would be Hamilton for Nylander but comparing Gardiner to Brodie and Gaudreau to Nylander is kinda off. i'm just saying those are 3 really good pieces, i'm sure that package wouldn't be that bad of a return

19 Jun 2018 14:35:08
WPG: Myers, 60th Overall 2018
TOR: 25th Overall 2018, 52nd Overall 2018

19 Jun 2018 15:05:53
Myers would be n affordable player and would be the Leafs #1 right shot d-man. Good right shot d-men are worth more than a # 25th pick. I think the if the Jets were to move him it would be for bit more than this offer.

19 Jun 2018 15:39:20
Looks to be fair value to me. Just because Myers would be the number one RHD on the Leafs (no debate there) does not mean he gets the return that Doughty or another true top pairing defenceman would get. Plus he only has one more year on his contract. Maybe the Leafs add a later round pick or a meh prospect.

My understanding is that the Jets are looking to free up some cap for key extensions and potentially get back in the 1st round in the draft. This accomplishes both. Plus they are stacked on the RHS on D with Trouba and Buff.

19 Jun 2018 18:06:00
I agree. The 1st and a decent prospect (B/ C type) would probably be what the Jets would want if they decide to move Myers.

18 Jun 2018 21:23:09
To Pittsburgh:
- Sam Bennett
- T. J. Brodie

To Calgary:
- Phil Kessel (25% retained)
- 3rd round pick

To Arizona:
- Curtis Lazar
- Pit 3rd round pick

To Calgary:
- Cristian Fischer

To Toronto:
- Michael Stone (25% retained)

To Calgary:
- Andreas Johnsson


Sign Anotione Roussel 2x2m

New Look Flames:


Kylington/ Valimaki-Andersson


18 Jun 2018 22:08:57
No from Toronto would rather keep Andreas Johnson. You can have Leivo and a 4th tho.

18 Jun 2018 22:59:53
Can’t see Pitt retaining any salary
No from Arizona
Idk enough about Johnsson.

18 Jun 2018 23:30:26
looks like the top line with the worst plus minus in the nhl 2018-2019 season.

18 Jun 2018 23:47:49
No way Toronto makes that trade.

19 Jun 2018 01:27:46
Where is Ferland, Brouwer, Even Hathaway and Foo?
I'm not even a Flames fan and theses question marks came up right away.

19 Jun 2018 19:30:32
Foo has played 4 games. he's bubble to make the team. Brouwer is not good at all. Hathaway is gritty but lacks any sort of skill.

Ferland is the big one. I left him off because he's had a concussion again for the thord or fourth time so i left him off because i'm not sure how effective he would be.

17 Jun 2018 15:21:35
• Dougie Hamilton
• William Nylander
• 25th Overall Selection in 2018
• Kasperi Kapanen

It's a bit of an overpayment from Toronto but Hamilton is a big 6'6 RHD and is 24 years old signed to an awesome contract, also he is exactly what toronto needs. Hamilton puts up solid points as a defender and has a good shot. Guessing Hamilton isn't available but if you want him, you would have to pay. Comparable value would be Jacob Trouba. Then Flames have a chance to take a run at Erik Karlsson if they aren't stuck on paying their players less then Giordano still, would much rather have EK than Gio. But Flames also get a good playmaker to play with Gaudreau and Monahan who would be a way better fit then Ferland. Also Hamilton is from Ontario and Nylander is from Calgary. Flames also get a 1st round pick which they want.

Toronto gets their much needed RHD dman on a good contract and who fits their young team. Calgary gets a scoring need and a 1st round pick plus a good depth player.

Gaudreau - Monahan - Nylander
Tkachuk - Backlund - Frolik
Bennett - Jankowski - Ferland
Kapanen - Lazar - Brouwer

Giordano - Brodie
Andersson - Hamonic
Kulak - Stone

(Brodie & Giordano reunited for the 1st pairing)

17 Jun 2018 16:04:41
Dougie is very inconsistent yes he’s a big need for the leafs but he’s a big goof on skates.

17 Jun 2018 16:36:40
No way from toronto. Hamilton didn't have a stellar year last year, i'm not trading an elite piece plus two good pieces for him, lol. Nylander + small add is more fair.

17 Jun 2018 17:07:22
Value wise is terrible from the Leafs POV. That package could land a much better dman like Jones or Eklblad.

17 Jun 2018 17:19:58
Inconsistent? What. Did you guys even watch him play last year. This site is brutal for one sided fans. He’s one of the best in the league offensively.

17 Jun 2018 20:28:29
As a leaf fan I would trade Nylander and the 25th overall pick for Hamilton in a heartbeat. Adding kapanen is an overpayment.

17 Jun 2018 21:06:46
@top shelf swappers: bad year for Hamilton? Is that what you call a D that had the most goals in the league from a Defensman? You should get to know other teams and their players a whole lot better.

17 Jun 2018 22:30:30
Itookdoncherry and jtjh23 are the only ones who know hockey i guess lol

15 Jun 2018 10:50:16
2 trades for the Isles

1) Philipp Grubauer and Brooks Orpik for 2018 CGY 2nd (43rd OA)

NYI get a 1B goalie to challenge his conutryman Greiss for the starter's job. This competition should be useful. Orpik is a cap dumb. He lessens the value of Grubauer. Washington gets the cap space to re-sign Carlson and others, Isles solve their goalie issues relatively cheap.

2) Brooks Orpik (50% retained by NYI) for Matt Martin

The Leafs get rid of two years of Martin's contract in exchange for one year of Polak's replacement as the tough guy. This helps the Leafs cap-wise in the near future. The Isles re-unite the fourth line of Martin-Cizikas-Clutterbuck.

15 Jun 2018 21:12:18
I’m sure there’s other teams that will offer more than Calgary will for Grubauer. I don’t think they need him bad enough to make the trade. Also they wouldn’t want to retain on Orpik and take Martins contract. Doesn’t make any sense for them.

15 Jun 2018 07:42:19
To Toronto Maple Leafs
• Dougie Hamilton
• Sam Bennett
To Calgary Flames
• William Nylander
• 25th Overall Pick
• Connor Brown


To Toronto Maple Leafs
• Mike Hoffman (guessing his value dropped a bit)
To Ottawa Senators
• Kasperi Kapanen
• 2nd Round Pick
• Joffrey Lupul

Resign James Van Riemsdyk and sign Calvin De Haan & Michael Grabner.

Mike Hoffman - Auston Matthews - Mitch Marner
James Van Riemsdyk - Sam Bennett - Zack Hyman
Patrick Marleau - Nazem Kadri - Michael Grabner

Morgan Rielly - Dougie Hamilton
Jake Gardiner - Nikita Zaitsev
Calvin De Haan - Ron Hainsey

15 Jun 2018 07:59:07
And what about the salary cap?

15 Jun 2018 08:51:49
I like the first deal but the leafs don’t need drama. Send Hoffman somewhere else. Kapanen is good and cheap. If given a chance in the top 6, I think he’ll be much better.

15 Jun 2018 11:07:09
Too lazy to check but I think Lupul's contract expired this season.

15 Jun 2018 11:21:25
Hahahahahahahaha I can't contain myself that trade is so bad lol please post another troll trade.

15 Jun 2018 12:51:50
Kappanen has more value then Hoffman. He’s the new E. Kane but older and worse defensively. What did E. Kane get? 2nd round pick.

15 Jun 2018 14:39:49
I think evander Kane got a 1st, 3rd (or 4th maybe) ans a prospect, but the first was conditional on him signing in San Jose which he did.

15 Jun 2018 16:05:28
That's how everyone else feels when you post Rambo!

Look at the joy you bring to the world. Kudos.

15 Jun 2018 16:52:15
Kapanen more value than Hoffman vbbvbb? Rofl in what world? And if any player in the league has negative value pupil is on of them. unlike Ryan lupuls contract is a lot more than a 2 million overpayment and he's never healthy and never produces.

15 Jun 2018 17:08:10
He hasn’t played in 2 years lol he’s retired Rambo. I would hope Ryan puts up more points haha.

15 Jun 2018 17:34:31
Refusing to be outdone, Rambo steals back the duncecap of ignorance by asserting that:

1. Lupul was still active in the NHL
2. Lupul has negative value because his contract (which ended this year) was too high (despite being on LTIR and not counting towards the salary cap.

You are a marvel.

15 Jun 2018 18:19:01
@unsportsmanlike, in all fairness, Rambo was right about one thing he said. “Lupul never produces”. That is as accurate a statement as I’ve ever seen on here lol.

15 Jun 2018 18:31:08
And while he was playing for Toronto he played 280 games with 88goals and 182 pts. That’s good for a .31 goals per game and a .65 pts per game. Mike Hoffman’s career with Ottawa is the exact same goals/ game at .31 and a .67 pts/ game.

So if lupul never produced, and has virtually identical numbers to Hoffman over the last 5 years of their career, what does that make him? Unless that .02 pts per game is the difference between a plug and a good player in your eyes lol.

16 Jun 2018 00:17:50
You are right it was a conditional 1st was thought to be a 2nd.

17 Jun 2018 15:13:52
I don't get why Toronto would trade a good young cost controlled top6/ 9 forward whos only getting better for a good top 6 winger whos cap is going to get higher ( salary bump for next contract) and stats are going to get worst. Nevermind adding the second rd pick.

15 Jun 2018 05:02:45
Nothing groundbreaking here, just my hopes for the Leafs in the next two and a half weeks.

To TOR: Dougie Hamilton

To CAL: William Nylander

This has been floated out there for awhile but I think it really helps both teams. Hamilton would pair nicely with Rielly and would come cheaper than Carlson's projected salary. Nylander with Jankowski could form a dominant second line, leaving the 3M line in its proper place as the third line.

1st round - Leafs draft Ty Dellandrea at 25th. I actually believe this kid is the second best centre in the draft. If he played for the Soo he would be going ahead of Veleno.

2nd round - Leafs trade the 52nd pick, Pickard and Marincin for Detriot's 36th. Leafs draft best D man available (Woo, Lundqvist, Samuelsson, Beaudin).
Both of those players would make Detriot's team next year. I just really hope the Leafs do something to get a early 2nd round as picks 24 to 42 all seem to be interchangeable depending on the mock. Deep year

Free Agency

JVR signs for $6 mill x 7 years. Rumours are that he wants to stay so he takes a $1 mill haircut to do so. This also lessens the sting of losing Nylander

Joe Thornton signs a 2 year x $5 mill. Centres are lacking in FA this year. The Leafs need a third line centre so the Ontario boy joins his old buddy Marleau. Also this let's Dellandrea develop

New Lines:

Johnsson - Matthews - Hyman
Marleau - Kadri - Marner
JVR - Thornton - Kapenan
Martin - Lindholm - Brown

Rielly - Hamilton
Gardiner - Zaitsev
Dermott - Hainsey

15 Jun 2018 06:35:36
Thornton already said he wants to stay in San Jose and I can’t see him willingly taking a 3rd line role tbh.

Idk who the ty player is but Veleno wasn’t even on a good team so idk what playing for Soo has to do with anything if you’re a good player it shouldn’t matter what team you’re on but it does help to play with better players.

15 Jun 2018 07:18:41
Slot Thornton 2C and Toronto might have to add for Hamilton due to him being 24years old and he puts up good points for a defender not to mention he's a RHD. Calvin De Haan could be a good option come free agency over Dermott.

15 Jun 2018 07:44:02
Toronto would have to add a piece to get Nylander but I like it. Bozak can come cheaper than Thornton and is a perfect 3rd line Center that wins face offs and kills penalties.

15 Jun 2018 15:49:44
I doubt Hamilton is available unless it’s for quite an overpay but he’s what the Leafs need.

17 Jun 2018 15:30:47
If Taylor Hall and his success (point wise) in Edmonton only gets Adam Larsson. Then William Nylander with his limited success of 3 years NHL would still require a massive add to get Dougie Hamilton.

15 Jun 2018 00:05:28
Jared McCann + Alex Petrovic to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Calle Rosen + Adam Brooks + 2019 2nd Round Draft Pick + 2018 3rd Round Draft Pick.

Florida has a lot of centres (Trocheck, Barkov, Bjugstad, etc. ) and a surplus of defencemen as well, and can afford to ship off both McCann and Petrovic; Petrovic of which is probably worth no more than a 3rd, and McCann worth a 2nd. They get a 2nd for McCann, and also pick up a 3rd, plus some 'meh' prospects for Petrovic, and these assets can be flipped for a scoring winger as needed. Toronto gets their new 3C, who Dubas knows well, and a stable RHD.

13 Jun 2018 11:19:11
Van: Tanev and MDZ (50% retained)

Tor: 2019 1st round pick (lottery protected) liljegren and Ron Hainsey

Van: Edler (50% retained)

Caps: Orpik, 2019 1st round pick, 2020 2nd round pick

Van: Sutter

Flo: Heponiemi, 2018 2nd round pick

All fit under the cap and all help out each teams needs.

Toronto wants a top pairing rhd right now to compete right now and give up nothing from the active roster plus pick up a younger and cheaper player to replace hainsey.

Caps clear out cap space to resign Carlson but at the same time add a better lhd to replace Orpik who is also younger and maybe be able to resign him in 2019 when cap is higher, but the thing is they are now able to resign Carlson and their remaining rfas

Florida adds a need in center and get a guy that can bring great leadership and some experience while giving away a decent B prospect and a second round pick this year, Florida adds more depth and this could help get them that very little push to get in the playoffs.

13 Jun 2018 14:32:46
Bro right now Heponiemi is prolly better than Sutter lmao. no way overpaid sutter gets a highly touted prospect and a second! you ain't getting either for sutter lol.

13 Jun 2018 16:34:01
Sutter for Lucic is closer and Leafs would have zero interest in MDZ not giving the 2019 1st and Lilijgren for Tanev.

12 Jun 2018 20:51:04
Edm: Ryan Strome + 3rd round pick

Tor: Kadri.

12 Jun 2018 21:06:12
Lmao okay.

12 Jun 2018 21:11:57
you’re funny.

13 Jun 2018 01:51:19
one of the best contracts in hockey with back to back 30 goal seasons for another chiarelli mistake lol no thanks. Might as well get scheifele for lucic and Josi for Larson while you’re at it.

12 Jun 2018 20:31:56
Toronto: PK Subban
To Nashville: Travis Dermot + lilgeren+ Kadri + Kapanen +1st

12 Jun 2018 20:57:50
Please no I’m not trying to destroy every aspect of depth on Toronto for a star player.

Of course PK is a star, but man, I would rather see Toronto wait it out and get EK or Myers next summer, or get a cheaper option like Miller or Tanev this summer. Trading away our 60 point 2C when we have minimal centre depth, a middle 6 RW, two top young d prospects/ players and a 1st will j set us back more imo.

I just can't see toronto blowing it up this much.

12 Jun 2018 21:06:50
Toronto is better off not making this trade for sure.

12 Jun 2018 21:31:21
I like Subban and he would be a huge addition to the defense in Toronto, but I agree with top shelf. That’s way too much youth to give up. I’ve been saying all along that I think the leafs should target a top 4 instead of a top 2 while waiting to see how Liljegren develops. Tyler Myers would be an ideal defenseman IMO. Winnipeg could get the most value for him right now coming off his best year.

13 Jun 2018 01:55:08
No way. Especially when the rumours are that he has already worn out his welcome in Nashville’s dressing room. I Want no part of PK. Plus with Matthew, Marner and nylander getting paid, we need Good players on ELCs like dermott, liljegren and kapanen to play big roles here and can’t afford to give up a 30 goal man making 4.5 mill in Kadri right after our other 4 mill/ 30 goal man in JVR is probably walking in a cpl weeks.

11 Jun 2018 11:34:38
Travis Hamonic (RD - 3.8 Million x 3 Years) + Sam Bennett (C - 1.8 Million x 1 Year) + Rasmus Andersson (RD - 755K x 2 Years) + 2018 3rd Round Draft Selection to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Kasperi Kapanen (RW - 925K X 1 Year) + Jake Gardiner (LD - 4.05 Million x 1 Year) + 2018 1st Round Draft Selection (#25 Overall)

Calgary then flips Gardiner.

Jake Gardiner (LD - 4.05 Million x 1 Year; Extension - 5.0 Million x 5 Years) + Curtis Lazar (C - 950K x 1 Year) to the New York Rangers in exchange for Vladislav Namestnikov (C - RFA; Extension - 3.75 Million x 3 Years) + Jimmy Vesey (RW - RFA; Extension - 2.5 Million x 3 Years) + 2018 3rd Round Draft Selection.

Hamonic + Bennett + Andersson + Lazar + 3rd for Kapanen + Namestnikov + Vesey + 1st + 3rd

Calgary acquires three NHL ready RW’s, a position that they need to shore up drastically this year. They trade from a position of wealth (D; Giordano, Hamilton, Brodie, Kylington, Valimaki, Kulak. ) to shore up. The Hamonic experiment was less than a success in Calgary, and he might be the easiest pf Calgarys big four dmen to trade, apart from Brodie, who’d garner a lesser return. In addition to Hamonic, they deal away Bennett who needs a new scenery ASAP, Andersson, who is basically a 1for1 for Kapanen, where both teams upgrade positions of need, Lazar, who is right now a nothing, and a 3rd, which they make back from NY. They also relinquish their need for a 1st, and can draft a player in the first round as accordingly.
And btw, Calgary needs to make something happen this summer. Last season was a letdown and change is needed. One complication is the fact that Hamonic probably won’t be traded ASAP, however, it is possible.

Toronto acquires two RD, one of which is a shutdown man who can play with Rielly, despite coming off a down year, and the other is young and can compliment Dermott rather well. They trade away their second best dman, but upgrade due to the fact that they don’t need four offensive minded dman on the current roster, and deal away a LD, wherein Dermott and Rielly can eat up more minutes. They also trade away Kapanen, but with Brown, Nylander, Marner, etc on the wing, Kapanen is excess. It would be nice to trade Brown instead of Kapanen, but I think Kapanen will be the thing that makes the deal happen. Toronto also gets a 3C for next season, one with high potential that was simply never realized. can become a 30-35 point guy as a hometown kid.

NY acquires a dman that they badly need in exchange for two players who struggled last year, but both of which are solid middle 6/ top 6 wingers. Vladdy could be a star alongside Gaudreau/ Monahan, as he was with Stamkos/ Kucherov, he just struggled immensely in NY due to a lack of talent. Vesey is a 30-35 point utility guy, who could be useful in CGY, NY gets their dman, a guy from the USA who probably would love to play in MSG. he's a high risk high reward guy, but could prove valuable on an NY team with no firepower on the backend.

That is way too much to read, but quickly looking it over, NYR told their fans when they traded Nash, McDonough and miller that they’re going to rebuild and get younger. Now you have them taking on a Dman in Gardiner in his late 20s and losing skilled young forwards. After that I kinda stopped reading. Also a top 4 RHD like Hamonic could help the leafs, but losing a LHD from our top 4 just switches the problem for L to R without really improving. And I’m as hopeful for dermott as anyone, but he’s played a handful of NHL games and I’ve watched him all playoffs long for the marlies (5 games live) and he has looked like the best player on either team sometimes, and looked very average (like a 21 year old D should) at others times. The fact that fans are just assuming he’s going to easily replace Jake gardiners 25 min and 50 pts is insane.

Good points Jim. Dermott has shown a lot of promise and potential but he's no sure thing yet. Lots of d-men look good in their first stint and then fail to really pan out (a la Luke Schenn) .

12 Jun 2018 06:45:13
Rangers won’t trade Vesey.

11 Jun 2018 11:30:48
Edmonton Plans ideas:

• Jesse Puljujärvi
• 10th Overall Selection in 2018
• Justin Faulk

• Kailer Yamamoto
• Tyler Benson
• Second Round Pick
• Wayne Simmonds

• Ryan Strome
• Matt Benning
• Third Round Pick
• Jason Demers

• Andrej Sekera
• Second Round Pick

Sign James Van Riemsdyk (4m x 4yrs), Sam Gagner (2m x 1yr)

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Connor McDavid - Wayne Simmonds
James Van Riemsdyk - Leon Draisaitl - Sam Gagner
Milan Lucic - Drake Cagguila - Ty Rattie
Anton Slepyshev - Jujhar Khaira - Zack Kassian

Oscar Klefbom - Justin Faulk
Darnell Nurse - Adam Larsson
Kris Russell - Jason Demers

11 Jun 2018 14:22:21
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.

11 Jun 2018 17:46:56
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.

11 Jun 2018 05:32:43
As flames being my 2nd favourite team. i'd like to see duos like

Gaudreau - Monahan
Tkachuk - Bennett

So would these trades work out?

• Brendan Gallagher
• Mikael Backlund

• 2nd Round Pick
• Michael Stone

• Brett Pesce
• Micheal Ferland

Free Agent Signings:
• James Van Riemsdyk
• Sam Gagner

Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Brendan Gallagher
Matthew Tkachuk - Sam Bennett - Michael Frolik
James Van Riemsdyk - Mark Jankowski - Sam Gagner
Garnet Hathaway - Curtis Lazar - Troy Brouwer

Mark Giordano - Dougie Hamilton
TJ Brodie - Travis Hamonic
Brett Kulak - Brett Pesce

11 Jun 2018 06:10:18
1st- I wouldn’t move Backlund for Gallagher.
2nd- yea probably.
3rd- I’d rather keep Ferland.

11 Jun 2018 06:53:24
wouldnt move gallagher for backlund lolll.

11 Jun 2018 06:57:22
Holy f.
Montreal says no (rather get Dman or better too 6 centerman)
Toronto easily says no wow what an over payment
Biggest no from Carolina what a joke
And can you even afford jvr? Idk what Calgary’s cap is but can they carry on jvr for potentially 6-7mil on open market.

11 Jun 2018 09:10:28
Wow zero chance Ferland gets Pesce haha.

11 Jun 2018 15:48:04
Pesce for Ferland! Haha Pesce and Slavin will not be moved. You’re not getting either unless Guadreau, Tkachuk or Mohnahan are involved.

11 Jun 2018 17:42:56
Mcjesus, he thinks they can afford JVR because he says he will take $4mill for 4 years lol like he owes Calgary a huge favour for some unknown reason. He’s going to leave $20+ mill on the table to go where the only connection he had was Brian Burke trading for him in Toronto and taking him to the olympics, who was now fired by flames anyway.

11 Jun 2018 19:51:06
Yeah exactly JVR isn’t taking any discounts, not on this contract.

Not a chance I’d take on seabrooks contract without top prospects and 1st round picks coming back. To trade a good top 4 Dman in Jake Gardiner who only makes 4 mill to take on an older top 4 Dman, with a ton of hard miles on him and a contract at almost $7mill taking him till he’s like 40 is suicide for a team with all that young talent.

11 Jun 2018 08:27:41
Horrible trade for the Hurricanes.
