WPG: Perrault
MON: 2nd Round Pick 2018 (WSH), 2nd Round Pick 2018 (TOR)

16 Jun 2018 20:59:00
I like Perrault but I think if habs trade for a center its gunna be a top 6 center.
Rather keep those picks and sweeten up Montreal’s weak prospect pool.

16 Jun 2018 21:20:10
Perreault would return more than that and I don't think the Jets want to move him.

16 Jun 2018 23:43:55
That would be a great offer for Perreault but I believe that Chevy would try to bundle him in a package that may include Myers, Petan, Kulikov Mason and Copp to get a better return. The Jets have 4 or 5 players ready to step up to the big team so they can afford to make 4 for 1/ 2 players, draft choices or prospects.

17 Jun 2018 05:12:59
I want a deal that includes Kulikov.

17 Jun 2018 08:05:15
The Jets could get more for Perreault.

17 Jun 2018 15:28:47
After this last trade by Montreal, If they want Perrault I bet they offer Pacioretty.

17 Jun 2018 15:29:04
Why would you want kulikov 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.

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).

11 Jun 2018 17:45:14
Wtf great deal for caps.

Sign and Trade
Grubauer for Ho-Sang + 2nd

NYI get their starting goalie

WSH gets someone who I think would fit great on 1st line with Ovi and Kuznetsov.

08 Jun 2018 13:00:37
I'd like to think grubaur could fetch more, ho-sang is so iffy to me.

04 Jun 2018 01:00:18
WPG: Perrault, 5th Round Pick 2018
MON: 2nd Round Pick 2018, 2nd Round Pick 2018 (WSH)

Then

WPG: 2nd Round Pick 2018, 2nd Round Pick 2018 (MON), 2nd Round Pick 2018 (WSH)
DET: 6th Overall Pick 2018

04 Jun 2018 03:02:23
Are you really offering 3 secound for a sixt overall.

04 Jun 2018 03:30:59
That might be able to get the 25th pick from Toronto. That’d not even close for the 6th overall. Would you trade Ehlers for 3 2nds?

04 Jun 2018 04:09:01
hell no from montreal and hwll no from Washington.

04 Jun 2018 04:09:28
hell no from Detroit my bad not Washington.

04 Jun 2018 16:31:10
3 second round picks would not get the 6th over all selection. The Jets would have to throw in Myers or Little and a prospect and even then it would probably be a no. Only Trouba would make Detroit trade that pick and the Jets would want more on top of the #6.

22 May 2018 20:43:57
TOR: 2018 2nd, Calle Rosen, Josh Leivo
WAS: Brooks Orpik, Matt Niskanen

Doesn't seem like much coming from Toronto but we would be eating cap for them inorder for them to resign Carlson.

Brooks Orpik is obviously a cap dump with a year left at 5.5M. Niskanen has 3 years left at 5.75M and would be a good partner for Rielly in my opinion.

22 May 2018 21:27:25
If Niskanen continues to decline in play, the Leafs will have over 10 million dollars committed to him and Zaitsev for minimum 3 years, all while having to work out the new contracts for the big 3, plus Kapanen and Johnsson coming up for renewals as well. Not very well thought out, Leafs with the hard no.

22 May 2018 21:50:40
So tell how you plan on paying Matthews/ Marner/ Nylander?

22 May 2018 23:37:52
No from leafs, why not just target an actually good dman who is better suited for them instead of taking cap dumps.

23 May 2018 03:35:41
The Leafs window to take cap dumps is about over. They have some great pieces to build around. They should start focusing on plugging holes with complementary talent, not cast-offs.

23 May 2018 03:41:42
A good d man is going to cost us an arm and a leg. Leafs can afford to take a cap dump next year.

23 May 2018 12:52:53
Ya but why get to cap dumps and give a second to get them. Unless Niskanen is worth his money which is probably not true since he is ok but for 5.5 million its too much.

23 May 2018 16:15:30
Leafs have assets to get a good Dman and are not in a position anymore to take other teams bad money. If we’re trading a decent pick and 2 young players, plus taking a cap dump i'd want someone better than niskanen or atleast someone as good as niskanen but on a very team friendly contract, not 5.75x3. That would be us paying all that to have niskanen as our highest paid Dman and second highest paid player overall behind marleau this season (depending on Nylander of course) . Bad plan.

Washington
Ovechkin

Edmonton
Drai, 10 OA Pick, Kleffbom

What do you think?

18 May 2018 04:27:26
Looool no from edmonton big time

18 May 2018 08:55:11
No from Oilers .

18 May 2018 10:57:30
Lol no from oilers? No let’s not take the leading scorer of the decade coming of of a 49 goal art Ross season for a 4th/ 3rd dman and Ty Smith ( a potential top 4 d )

18 May 2018 11:21:09
@vb
I think you’re forgetting Drais.


But to be honest, as much as it may be a lot of youth going out from Edmonton, this is pretty interesting. Washington would never do this, even if the value is lopsided in their favour, there would be riots over trading Ovie after he got em past the third round. and Washington doesn't really need Drais with Kuzy and Backstrom down the middle. As for Edmonton, that's a ton to give up, and that's why i'd probably say no from them too, however, can you imagine McDavid - Ovechkin for the better part of the next ten years? Ovie would easily be a 60 goal man year after year, cause McDavid is well better than Backstrom. Idk. If Ovie lost in the second round again, this would be intriguing. But i just think its a bit too much from Edmonton, and a trade Washington just shouldn't make.

18 May 2018 12:44:48
I think drais looses a lot of value Becuase of his high price contract, good player but.

18 May 2018 16:51:25
Yes VB, Ovie is the best goal scorer of a decade, and I love the guy and the way he plays. Problem is, he’s not going to lead the way for another decade. Draisatl at 22 or whatever, klefbom in his mid 20s and whatever 18 year old they get with the 10th overall can contribute for the next decade+.

19 May 2018 03:20:11
Didn’t see Drais in the trade.

15 May 2018 19:44:47
what would it take for montreal to get the a pick in the region of 12-14

Unavailable players and picks are

Drouin
Galchenyuk
Price
Mete
Weber
3OVA
Danault

Can this do it

Poehling, 2018 2nd, 2018 2nd from toronto and Washington.

15 May 2018 20:01:50
and Gallagher.

15 May 2018 21:33:17
So you are saying they should trade their best prospect and 2 possibly good prospects for a player that won't be much better than Poehling? AND Gallagher?

15 May 2018 21:56:19
why the hell would you give all that for a mid round pick. i say try and get top 10 or it ain't worth it.

16 May 2018 15:15:57
No from mtl unless were getting another top 5 pick lol. Gallagher and Phoeling should get you a pick in the top 10 by themself.

26 Apr 2018 18:50:50
Clearly after last night the Leafs need Dmen bad as I already noted in other trades.

Toronto: Kapanen, Johnsson, 1st 2018

Washington: Niskanen, Beagle, 3rd 2018.

27 Apr 2018 03:46:56
leafs say no even without the 1st.

27 Apr 2018 10:14:08
Don't think the capital a going to be welling to give up the any d cause there probably going to loss Carlson.

06 Apr 2018 17:29:03
The islanders are in need of defence.
Oilers are in need of cap space and wingers and RHD. What about this?

Oilers: Sekera
Islanders: Ho Sang (He isn’t working for them)

Oilers: get a good RHW prospect that is cheap and would look good on McDavid’s right wing.
Islanders: get a good defence man in return.

Oilers: will have the space to go over for RHD. Would love Carlson (Capitals), but maybe Green for a season or two until Bear is better ready for the NHL.

06 Apr 2018 18:11:17
Sekera has been terrible this year, and has like negative value rn. He ain't getting Ho Sang tbh, espex at that contract.

06 Apr 2018 18:22:53
Sekera has always been a good dman. This season he was injured and hurt.

06 Apr 2018 18:35:27
Also, what has Ho sang proven? Nothing! Potential and bad attitude only!

06 Apr 2018 18:45:28
Ho sang hasn’t proved anything so can’t see him with so much value and you can’t say sekera has been terrible considering he was injured the whole year and had the worst luck iv ever seen. However yes he was not a good player this year unfortunately and with his contract he defs does not carry a whole ton of value. But no from islanders on this one, maybe Russell intrigues Islanders? Or benning?

06 Apr 2018 19:10:21
Damn it NYI don’t need an other defensive DMan.

06 Apr 2018 20:44:45
That’s how islanders get better in the absence of Tavares. trade a young high skilled forward for a 4th-5th D who makes half what it would take to keep Tavares lol.

06 Apr 2018 22:00:57
It doesn’t matter how skilled the forwards are. No defence, no winning. We saw that his year with the oilers and the islanders. Plus, I’m betting Bo Sang will be traded soon. Bad terms!

06 Apr 2018 23:18:05
@MJ

Matt Benning shoukd be able to get it done tbh. I'm not saying Sekera isn't proven to be decent/ good. I'm saying NYI should never want that contract on their team, especially with only 3 points in 36 games this year. Sure he's been injured, but any trade of him ATM would be a pure salary dump, and no value should be going back the other way. Just simply based on this year, and his contract.

Matt Benning and a 3rd may be good though.

And @EOil, no HoSang hasn't proven much, but NYI ain't going to trade a former first round pick for a bad contract.

06 Apr 2018 23:48:00
Yup I agree top shelf.
And benning and a 3rd could be very interesting to islanders If they really do wanna trade ho sang.

07 Apr 2018 00:42:08
Sekera has nagitive value.

07 Apr 2018 02:54:24
Sekera is also 31. Bad attitude or not, Ho Sang is a 22 year old forward with talent that you have slotted in next to McDavid. I’m guessing he’s worth more than Sekera.

07 Apr 2018 18:18:08
Again, got to love when guys make a trade proposal for a player, put him on their projected top line and then tear the player down and try to diminish the asset when people tell you it’s not a fair offer. If HoSang is unproven, not worth anything and a bad attitude, then there’s an easy solution. don’t trade for him! Why bring a problem into the dressing room and put him with your best player! Lol.

07 Apr 2018 21:05:40
I didn’t say the kid isn’t talented, but his trade value is low. I’m putting that out. That means he doesn’t require a top dman to get him, especially when the islanders need dman. So ya lol!

17 Mar 2018 19:38:19
To NYI:
Philipp Grubauer

To WSH:
Michael Dal Colle
Conditional pick 2019


For the Isles, it's clear. They get a young 1B goalie who can challenge his countryman Greiss for the starter's job.

Caps get a LW prospect who seems to be a bust but still can turn it around if given a chance to play with skilled players. The conditional pick will depend on games played by MDC in 2018-19. If he plays less than 40 NHL games, Caps also get CGY's 2nd in 2019. If he plays 41+ games, there's no pick from the Isles (similar to Drouin-Sergachev trade).

17 Mar 2018 20:13:44
Lol going to take a much better goalie.

18 Mar 2018 12:47:07
Honestly, not too bad.

Problem is, Isles have tried too many 'iffy' goalies (Greiss, Berube, Halak, Gibson, etc. ) and I feel that Grub may fall into the same boat, considering he doesn't have any seasons as a 'starter' under his belt. I could see them going after a guy like Anttii Raanta, or even a guy like Craig Anderson due to their experience.

But the proposed trade is pretty fair imo.

19 Mar 2018 22:28:15
Post some of those unbiased leaf trades for a change. Leafs could use a dman or two . I hear Paul martin is on the market lol.

20 Mar 2018 02:33:09
Concede.

03 Mar 2018 23:23:09
Look we all know Drouin isn't a Center and never will be and Galchenyuk is better than him in that position sooo

Mtl trades Pacioretty, 2018 2nd(washington).

Edmonton trades: Puljajarvi, 2019 1st.

Drafts Tkachuk

Drouin-Galchenyuk-Puljajarvi
Scherback-Tkachuk-Gallagher
Lehkonen-Danault-Byron
Deslauriers-Shaw-Froese

Mete-Petry
Alzner-Juulsen

03 Mar 2018 23:32:47
Edmonton ain't trading the 1st overall pick. Lol.

03 Mar 2018 23:35:06
No thanks bruh.

03 Mar 2018 23:58:06
You are delusionnal too
Oilers are not going to throw all theses years of reconstruction in the garbage.

04 Mar 2018 00:29:11
pick is top 10 protected.

04 Mar 2018 01:14:51
Take out that picks and still no from Edm.

04 Mar 2018 01:46:05
Pick also says 2019.

04 Mar 2018 03:30:14
Lol. Why you guys always trying for Oilers players. Go after some other teams.
Easy no from Edm. Look at age and contracts man. Jeez.

04 Mar 2018 10:25:08
Ya but is Chuck ok at center? Wasnt he ok last year for 44 games when he had 41 points in 44 games? Wasnt he a point player for 44 games in this league? Isn't that good?

04 Mar 2018 14:24:50
Not the problem
You think we can get a future elite scorer for peanuts.

04 Mar 2018 18:25:04
Maybe if you switch the picks around.

04 Mar 2018 19:54:22
Fair deal for everybody not name Mtl.

05 Mar 2018 19:10:43
Probably not "targeting" Oiler players as the GM's trading record.

22 Feb 2018 21:24:13
What should the Leafs do?

Everybody has a different opinion on this, here is mine.

Stand pat at the deadline.
I know people want to win now but remember that our core has plenty of years left so don't rush it. Teams will be asking for players such as:
Marner, Nylander, Kapanen, Dermott if the Leafs go after one of the high quality names put there and in my opinion that would waste what they have been trying to do(win for many years, not just one). Teams such as Boston and Tampa are already ahead of them this year, with Pittsburgh always playoff dangerous, so let them break the farm for a chance to win this year.
Bozak and JVR WILL be gone in the off season so get something for them. Add during the off season when more players will be available for trade or Free agency.

Deadline
JVR(TOR)
for
Miller.C(VEG)

With an abundance of dman under contract for next year or RFA's, getting rid of another for a scoring winger for an extra push in the playoffs would help

Bozak.T(TOR)
for
Pilon.G, 4th-2018(WAS)

Capitals get a strong 3rd line center , Leafs get a center prospect which they don't have a lot of

Off Season
Sign
Komarov.L 2 yrs - $4 mil
Nylander.W 6 yrs - $39 mil
Carrick.C 2 yrs - $4.5 mil
Miller.C 3 yrs - $9 mil

This still leaves over $6 mil to play with.

2018-2019

Kapanen-Matthews-Nylander
Marleau-Kadri-Marner
Johnsson-?-Brown
Hyman-Gauthier-Komarov
Martin

Reilly-Millar
Gardiner-Hainsey
Zaitsev-Dermott
Carrick

22 Feb 2018 21:33:00
And. that's the problem with trading Bozak. I'd rather hold onto him for the playoff push, and maybe even resign him. He knows the system, and will be cheaper than his 4.2 million that he's making now. Plus, he's played with this team his entire career, if we make a decent offer, hell prob resign. So honestly, i'd rather keep Bozak and attempt to resign him.

With JVR, he isn't getting a dman who is an RFA (controllable asset) who has nearly the same amount of points as him. And Vegas wouldn't want to go for JVR, they have way too many forwards already.

22 Feb 2018 22:36:20
I agree with standing pat. I’m ok with a small add at center and even defense if it doesn’t cost too much. I would like it if they traded JVR if they get decent value. Trading JVR also allows Martin back in the line up, depending on what else they do. I know lots of you don’t like Martin but he is important come playoffs. I agree with TSS 100% with keeping Bozak. He is and has been very underrated for years. He plays PP, PK and is good on the draw. I don’t think they should pursue McDonagh. He is a very solid defenseman but I think the leafs would give up too much.

23 Feb 2018 01:36:27
Bozak will hit the open market. with the salary cap going up his salary will increase as well. It happens every time.

23 Feb 2018 16:31:15
I get that they want to keep Carrick but 2.5mil for. 7th D man when you have Lilj coming up. Also I would keep Bozak and JVR for a playoff push then if you lose them you lose them then you have more money in free agency.

21 Feb 2018 17:44:43
Jerabek traded to caps for 5th pick

21 Feb 2018 19:16:28
What you think of this? I'm kinda disappointed . I don't think he was given much of an opportunity in Montreal. I'm not saying he was going to be a star. but at least he could move the damn puck.,
Woulda like to have seen a bigger sample size.

21 Feb 2018 19:26:02
Your right Sosa he wasnt given much of a chance a crowded blue line at the beginning of the season kept him in the minors and lately he was scratched in favor of morrow for some reason. he was the best dman for laval while he was there. that being said I think it came down to him wanting anew one way contract that the habs were not interested in giving him. So they traded him for another draft pick. it didn't cost them anything to get him so at least this way they get something for him albeit not much.

22 Feb 2018 17:41:06
Stupid move. how can you assess a guy who hasn't played enough games to be expendable.

16 Feb 2018 16:47:35
Mtl:Pacioretty,Plekanec,Lehkonen, 2nd/2018 (Washington)

Flo:Bjugstad,Borgstrom,1st/2018(draft protect) become 1st/2019 (non-protect)

16 Feb 2018 16:53:23
Nice try. Florida isn't trading their 1st for one year of Pacioretty.

16 Feb 2018 19:24:44
-Its so easy to sign Pacioretty right away (~7,5m/ 5-6 years) . He's going to be in love with Florida after all the big pressure of Mtl.

-Plekanec would be a realy nice addition as a third line center with experience but also realy good for defensive mission like 5 on 4.

-Lehkonen have a good potential. He's a realy good two way player with a good wrist shot.

-------

-Bjugstad is a big center, still young who score around 20-25 goals. But never develop as he was suppose to.

-Borgstrom is the big piece of that trade. He have a lot of potential, he have good hand and he's able to score but still he proved nothing yet in the Nhl.

-The first choice with the second 2018 Florida receive is nothing for Pacioretty. The only piece Florida lose in the line up is Bjugstad.

And look at the Florida lines.

Huberdeau-Barkov-Dadonov
Pacioretty-Trocheck-Malgin
Mccann-Plekanec-Lehkonen
Mcginn-Mackenzie-Sceviour

-Look realy good for the final push and next years! No?

-Mtl have what they crucialy need, depth at the center position.

16 Feb 2018 19:49:09
I want Montreal to keep lehkonen. He’s got lots of potential just hasn’t been able to find a groove with injuries and the lack of offensive centers.

16 Feb 2018 20:23:37
I agree! But you have to give if you went a good center and everybody know that Mtl need center, so.
Anyway mtl have a lot of wingers and I have more hope in Hudon or Sherback for there offensive potentiel than Lehkonen who's more defensive and need to improve offensive. Also Lehkonen have a better value I think.

17 Jan 2018 22:43:31
WSH - Tom Wilson
CGY - 2nd Round Pick + Oliver Kylington

Flames might need to add idk, i was going to put a 1st but they traded theirs to NYI.

18 Jan 2018 00:34:39
Washington values Wilson a lot more than that.

18 Jan 2018 01:24:26
They traded the 2nd also.

18 Jan 2018 01:48:02
That’s also a lot for just a grinder but I guess he’s not bad.

18 Jan 2018 16:02:48
Trade as proposed is not possible as Calgary has already forfeited their 2nd round picks for 2018 AND 2019.

16 Jan 2018 22:06:18
I heard this rumour on the radio this morning:

OTT: Hoffman ceci

WSH: OSHIE and 2018 1st

Just what i heard but thought i'd share.

17 Jan 2018 00:05:51
I think capitals lose that imo.

17 Jan 2018 00:06:04
But that’s interesting.

17 Jan 2018 01:41:14
Personally, I wouldn't do it as a sens fan. I don't value oshie that high and that 1st is going to be very late.

17 Jan 2018 22:23:28
How exactly do the capitals lose on that mcjesus?

This is exactly what I keep saying. You people underrate sens players way too much. hoffman oshie are close in value but I still rank hoffman a bit higher but Ceci is definitely worth a high 1st round pick not a bottom 5 to 7 that's a joke.

09 Jan 2018 08:28:10
to Arizona
Orpik
Garrett Pilon

to Washington
Goligoski

Washington gets a better defenseman for yet another shot at a cup and does not take on any new cap. Although Goligoski's contract is longer than that of Orpik's by a decent margin, the only damage that does is the inevitable John Carlson situation, which would have been a problem anyway (personally I think they move Lars Eller at some point to make room for Carlson's 2-3M pay raise) . Arizona gets a solid prospect in return.
