WPG: Kulikov
EDM: 6th Round Pick 2019

Edmonton gets a player that can fill in while Sekera is injured. Jets move a defenceman and a cap hit without giving up any prospects or picks.

15 Aug 2018 20:10:21
Kulikov is slightly overpriced but I'd rather him than a 6th. Right now.

15 Aug 2018 20:09:52
Your fellow peg fans aren’t going to like this. Because last week they said kulikov was better than Gardiner and Zaitsev amd I wouldn’t think about moving either of them for less than a prospect and a 2nd.

15 Aug 2018 20:59:56
Moving Kulikov would save the Jets $4.3 mil this season which would make a trade to the Oilers feasible, but they would want a 3rd or 4th round pick. The Jets would have Morrow and Poolman that could easily take Kulokov's place on the 3rd pairing.

15 Aug 2018 21:11:30
I'd rather just keep Kulikov for the depth. There are always injuries during the year and Kulikov can help keep Chiarot and Morrow from playing too many minutes. Losing the depth for a 6th round pick isn't worth it.

16 Aug 2018 18:38:28
I think that if kulikov could quite getting hurt he'd be a decent partner for buff or Myers. Bring some defence to one of them but that's a big if.

16 Aug 2018 22:25:37
Oilers can just sign someone for a lot less than Kulikovs money. Davidson, Sbisa, Emelin, a bunch others.
I bet they bring back Davidson on a PTO.
I wish they would do something bigger tho F.

17 Aug 2018 02:27:08
Davidson is still available? I’m not being rude when I say this but weren’t you guys really high on him?

17 Aug 2018 10:32:39
Yeah I was, he had to step up for injuries like 2 or 3 seasons ago and he played so solid.

17 Aug 2018 16:19:28
I thought he was pretty good ebs.

11 Aug 2018 06:51:34
Toronto trades: Brown, Gardiner

Winnipeg trades: Myers, Perrault

Smt along these lines what do you think?

11 Aug 2018 07:20:17
The Jets have absolutely no need for Brown and would probably rather keep Myers than trade for Gardiner. So, Winnipeg would decline.

11 Aug 2018 09:24:54
There is no way the Jets would make this trade as Perreault is a much better player than Brown, who would be behind Wheeler, Laine, and Tanev. The Jets would rather bring up younger, homegrown players like Appleton, Vesalainen and Lemieux. Gardner is a 28 year old defensive liability that makes the same mistakes an 18 year rookie makes and will be a UFR next season so why would the Jets want him? Let him stay with the Leafs and be their headache.

11 Aug 2018 15:22:31
Jake Gardiner out scored all of Winnepegs deffensman including the legend Wayne ( Trouba ) Gretzky. That’s all I’m going to say and was + 9 which was equal to Myers.

11 Aug 2018 16:25:31
He clearly said Gardiner is a defensive liability not on offensive one. IDK why you would bring points but alright

11 Aug 2018 17:13:29
Just pointing out Gardiner is much better then Myers.

11 Aug 2018 18:16:38
Still laughing at Perrault being much better than brown. Brown is younger and a better Pker and on a better contract. But whatever.

11 Aug 2018 18:43:24
Gardiner isn’t better than Myers.

11 Aug 2018 19:48:32
Here we go again with jets/ leafs comparisons. Islandjet a career 40 point guy is not a much better player than Brown. He’s 6 years younger with a couple good seasons behind him already and he’s good on the pk. Brown has also been 3/ 4 line only. I’m pretty sure Perrault even gets PP time but I could be wrong. I’m not saying Brown is a superstar but Perrault is not all that either. Myers is better than Gardiner defensively for sure but there’s not a person on this site that gives him credit for his offensive awareness. I’d like to see Gardiner play with a real solid d man that could cover for him once in a while. Had Myers not just come off one of his best seasons yet I’d say it’s a close deal but I think it would take more from Toronto.

11 Aug 2018 20:06:15
Well Defensively you can’t argue Gardiner is way better then Myers and offensively I’d say Gardiner is better so can you please find statistics to prove Myers is better then Gardiner in anyway not even just hockey like anything Gardiner is litterly better then him at every aspect of life.

11 Aug 2018 21:21:35
Vbbbvvbb. did you say Gardiner is better than Myers defensively? Myers has the defensive aspect over Gardiner, Gardiner is better offensively. Overall value is not far apart.

12 Aug 2018 01:26:46
Myers really isn’t known to be a strong defensive player off the rush he gets beat much more then Gardiner. His stalky 6.8 frame takes up space in his own zone tho.

12 Aug 2018 15:54:08
@vbbbvvbb then you haven't watched Myers' goal against the wild in game 2 of the playoffs. Legit just danced around the defender to score. Haven't seen Gardiner do that, let alone in the playoffs

12 Aug 2018 16:08:56
If the Jets did make this trade in the long run it would not address the long term problem it would cause. Of the next 4 Jets A defense prospects, Niku, Stanley and Samberg they all shoot left with only Poolman being a RHD. Getting Gardner may fit in now but the next 2 years they would be looking for another RHD. This trade makes no sense for the Jets.

12 Aug 2018 16:50:42
I actually seen that goal it was dirty.

10 Aug 2018 23:49:04
WPG: Trouba
DET: Larkin

Detroit gets a #1 RHD from Michigan that'll be their cornerstone piece in the rebuild. Jets get a top C who can play on the second line behind Scheifele and flourish. Also to note Larkin and Connor grew up together so they'll have some chemistry as well.

The Jets may need to add however I rate a top defenceman over a top center based on positional value. It's harder to find the top defenceman compared to a center which always seems to be a top 3 Pick if not multiple within the top 3.


11 Aug 2018 04:40:16
I like it but guarantee you people think Trouba can get more lol however I also think Detroit should keep Larkin they need him.

11 Aug 2018 05:27:59
No way from Detroit they just signed there home town boy future captain to a cap friendly 5 year deal.

11 Aug 2018 06:04:42
Detroit would have nothing left at center, so I can't see them doing it. The Jets need their top pairing RHD more than a 2C, so it doesn't work for Winnipeg.

11 Aug 2018 09:29:43
Detroit wouldn't trade Larkin as they have just locked him up for 5 years and he is their stud center. They would love to have Trouba but I don't see the Wings having any players that the Jets would want for their #1 right shot d-man.

11 Aug 2018 11:28:15
Face it guys, these WPG fans know best. Trouba is just too valuable. In addition to singlehandedly winning the Jets a cup this year he is also designing a climate controlling apparatus to make the winters in the peg less harsh. He might even have superpowers. He can beat Guitar Hero on expert and his pubes cure cancer.

11 Aug 2018 15:15:20
No Unsportsmanlike its just many Jet fans are realistic that the Jets will expect a proper return for a young RHD. Chevy wouldn't want scraps like many of the Leaf offers posted here or players that other teams would never trade like the Larkin proposal. When Chevy makes a deal it will be for pieces that will help the Jets in the future not just now.

11 Aug 2018 15:24:22
The funny thing is he isn’t even the Number 1 D he’s the 2 D behind big buff.

11 Aug 2018 16:13:31
vbbbv Your comment proves how deep the Jets are at d with Poolman, Niku, Stanley and Samberg in the wings. They really don't need the human turnstile Gardner. Some of the Leaf posters should try and peddle him to another team, or better yet keep him since he is so good then he can break your heart with his pathetic defensive play when you need him the most.

11 Aug 2018 17:15:55
Never once proposed the leafs should trade Gardiner I personally think they should keep him. Also this trades about Larkin not Gardiner. Larkin>>Trouba.

11 Aug 2018 20:05:33
Just curious islandjet. Did you only watch one game in the playoffs? Gardiner is not as bad as you make him out to be.

11 Aug 2018 20:47:15
Anyways, I think it’s pretty fair value wise. Joe I agree Detroit would have nothing left at center but if Winnipeg was offered Larkin, I think they’d be all over it. You can never have too many centres and I think he also plays the wing.

12 Aug 2018 00:08:45
Leafs17, I agree that value wise in a vacuum it is pretty good, but the Jets need to keep Trouba more than we need a better 2C. Trouba is our top pairing, shut down defenseman. If Larkin was going to be our number 1C, it would be worth it. But if we trade Trouba for a forward we need to go out and find another young, high end defenseman. It would make our offense, which is already really good, better, but would hurt our defense more. It's just not worth the trade off.

12 Aug 2018 00:43:57
Should the jets be trading Myers for a LD then? No need for 3 strong RH d and a weak left side.

12 Aug 2018 01:57:21
Yeah but memarcusjoe you won’t have Trouba in a year. Larkin would be an amazing return.

12 Aug 2018 07:25:23
Leafs17, we can't trade Myers until we know for sure what is happening with Trouba.

Ebsolutely, why won't the Jets have Trouba in a year? He's still RFA at the end of his contract. If they have to trade him next summer they'll still get a huge return.

12 Aug 2018 07:48:01
My bad I thought he was a UFA at seasons end. Still think Larkin would be a good and smart return.

12 Aug 2018 08:30:09
Ebsolutely, Larkin would be a good return. Just not what the Jets need at this point.

12 Aug 2018 16:00:07
This trade could make sense if Poolman steps up and becomes a shut down defender he has the potential to be. The Jets would be more willing to part with Trouba if this happens. This trade would be fair for both teams as it addresses a desperate need for the Wings and makes the Jets very strong at center. The Wings still should be hesitant to do it as young, talented centers that are signed long term to a fair contract are hard to come by, but Trouba is their home town kid.

10 Aug 2018 16:31:17
Toronto Trades

Winnipeg Trades

Bottom 9 depth trade Jets need a RWinger and Leafs need a Centre to spell Lindholm.

Thoughts ?

10 Aug 2018 17:13:15
Dano is a right winger.

10 Aug 2018 17:13:58
This trade doesn't help or hurt either team. Leivo is bigger which the Jets like but Dano is younger. I don't believe that Leivo could make the Jets as they have younger more skilled home grown players that will be given a chance at the 4th line. I hope both players get traded to teams that will give them a fair chance to play as they both have NHL talent but are with teams that are deep at their positions.

10 Aug 2018 18:35:34
No reason for either team to make this trade. The Jets don't need Leivo and the Leafs don't need Dano.

10 Aug 2018 18:45:27
Dano is listed as a centre, But you know better than me where he actually plays. Regardless, leafs signed Par lindholm amd Josh Jooris as options for 4th line centre on July 1st, plus just re-signed Freddy Gauthier for 2 years who I still think the management has a soft spot for and wants him to succeed but this is probably his last crack at the leafs roster before he’s just the marlies career captain.

10 Aug 2018 19:24:33
I agree with you Unbiased Jim about Gauthier and the Leafs. This is another player that needs a trade to another team to get a fair chance to play at the NHL level, much like Petan and Dano with the Jets.

10 Aug 2018 20:44:35
Gauthier dosent need to be traded the leafs have a open 4c spot and if he’s good enough he’ll take it. He’s just flat out not good enough for a full time position.

10 Aug 2018 20:46:33
Jets RWing Depth.

Dano is more a Centre than a RWinger.
Jets are deep at Centre even with Stastny in Vegas.
It's a move for both players to possibly play more.
I know Leivo will play more in the Peg than with the Leafs and he deserves to play regularly.

10 Aug 2018 20:52:26
Unless I'm mistaken he has never played centre in Winnipeg I'm not sure if he has at the NHL level at all.

10 Aug 2018 21:29:15
Yeah, I don’t know if Gauthier needs to be traded, he’s got a spot in front of him here, just hasn’t grabbed it. The one time he really looked like he was stringing together some good games and gaining trust, he got hurt and it took him months to get another shot.

He’s a big centre (6’5 or 6’6) which there’s always a spot for, but you need to still be able to move in the league now. He’s worked on it a lot and is a far better skater than before, but still never going to be fast. Don’t know if other teams would have any more use for him than we do unfortunately.

I Watched him all through the marlies playoffs and was first row behind the bench for game 7 of the finals when they won. You hear him on the bench, winning or losing he was always talking guys up. And when they won he kinda led the celebration. guys a riot. That’s why I said AHL captain if he can’t make the NHL. Seems like a great team guy and the other players love him.

10 Aug 2018 21:56:10
Did you actually say that little is a winger. The player who until the last couple years was the first line center for them that little.

10 Aug 2018 22:44:17
Unbiased Jim From what you wrote Gauthier is the kind of player fans root for and hope that they can make the big team. Unfortunately time eventually runs out if a player can't crack the line-up by time they are 23 or 24.

10 Aug 2018 23:40:55
Little has played RWing for a few years now yes.

11 Aug 2018 02:17:52
@IJ, for sure. I hope he makes the team every year but it’s hard for him. It’s like he’s born 10 years too late lol I go to a lot of marlies games tho and if he’s a top guy there, I don’t think it’s a bad thing. He could possibly make a bigger impact for the organization Being a role model and helping our prospect pool down there then as a 4th liner.

07 Aug 2018 13:21:44
Toronto Trades
Connor Brown
1st Round Pick 2019

Winnipeg Trades

Thoughts ?

07 Aug 2018 14:57:12
There is nothing in that offer that the Jets need at all. They wouldn't consider that deal in the slightest.

07 Aug 2018 15:04:51
The Jets don't need quantity as they have players that are better than the ones being offered in this trade. All three players offered would be UFA in 2 years, would not be an upgrade in what the Jets have on their 3rd or 4th lines. Comrie is younger and has more upside in goal than Sparks. The 1st would be nice but would be in the mid 20's and a player drafted then is no guarantee that they will be a top end player. The Jets would need a top line player, or a can't miss A prospects plus draft choices back for Trouba who would be the Leafs top pairing RHD.

07 Aug 2018 15:49:16
Carrick is a fringe RHD. Brown is the best piece there as he could be a good depth guy with some secondary offense and sparks has no chance to take hellbyucks job and they have plenty of G depth behind him with brossoit, comrie, is hutch still there?!

Jets want atleast one REALLy good young piece coming back. It’s just not there.

07 Aug 2018 15:55:35
Why all leafs trades involve the same few players? Leafs fans see them as extras that fans give away for really good players for some reason.

07 Aug 2018 16:36:35
I’d rather take that deal then pay Trouba 8 million.

07 Aug 2018 19:12:11
To start with all 3 of
Brown, Carrick, and Sparks will be RFAs not UFAs in 2yrs so you are wrong there.
Sparks won the equivalent of the Vezina in the AHL so he is far better than Comrie.
Carrick is a better suited number 3 RHanded Defenceman than Trouba is as the Jets are deep with Byfuglien and Myers ahead of Trouba.
Yes the Jets have great talent but the bottom 6 needs some depth.
Tanev, Copp, and Brown is a great 4th line for any Team and it only makes the Jets better in the end with this Trade.
Trouba is what the Leafs need to notch Hainsey down to make them solid on Defence.
As for the probable late 1st Round Pick many late 1st Round Picks have become star players so any 1st Round Pick means something.
Or maybe the Jets use that Pick to get the Center they need at some point to replace the departure of Stastny.
So to say the Jets won't bite with the Trouba contract problems etc doesn't wash as I see a fit for both Teams.

07 Aug 2018 21:34:16
The Jets wouldn’t take that deal whatsoever. Instead they need a top end prospect in return. My thoughts are proposing this:

WPG: Trouba
TOR: 1st Round Pick 2019, 2nd Round Pick 2020, Liljegren.

07 Aug 2018 21:48:16
From your own description of the trade, you're offering a bunch of depth pieces to the Jets.

Brown is a winger and the Jets have wingers galore, so no need for Brown. Goalies don't have much value at all. Carrick is a bottom pairing defenseman who may be able to play top 4 someday and a late first.

Nobody trades a young, top pairing RHD to get bottom 6 and bottom pairing depth. You would need to add a much more valuable piece.

So, the only fit here is for Toronto as there is absolutely no fit for Winnipeg.

07 Aug 2018 22:16:53
You're on the right track. However, the Jets wouldn't take an all futures trade. They would need a good, center or defenseman roster player coming back as well.

08 Aug 2018 01:56:18
Memarcusjoe I would prefer to get Lindgren, a 1st Round Pick 2019 and another mid range peice however I don’t see anyone I personally like. Maybe Gauthier as a centre but that’s it.

08 Aug 2018 01:57:09
So I’ll revise my trade

WPG: Trouba
TOR: Liljegren, Gauthier, 1st Round Pick 2019.

08 Aug 2018 05:37:06
That's why I think we're poor trading partners with Toronto. Their best available pieces all play positions the Jets don't need.

As for your Gauthier proposal, that would be selling really low on Trouba. 29 other teams would beat that offer easily.

08 Aug 2018 06:28:13
29 teams would out bid that offer 2 1st round picks and 2nd? . you think Carolina is going to pay more then that for another dman? You think Pittsburgh, Washington, Calargry or Nashville is going to destroy there cap space to take on another dman that they don’t need? Or you think teams like Detroit, Chicago, Montreal, Ottawa and New Jersey have the Assets to even make that type of offer. I bet many other teams wouldn’t be interested in him either.


Reread this nonsense before you post next time.

08 Aug 2018 14:35:10
Vbbb I really believe that there would be at least a dozen teams that would want Trouba and many of them have the cap space to pay him over $6 mil per. Detroit, Philly, Boston, NYI and Vegas have interest in trading for Trouba. I believe that Chevy will only trade him if they can't get a long term deal done before next season. This may be hastened if Poolman steps up and plays as he has done in the past. I agree with Memarcusjoe that the Leafs and Jets aren't good trading partners as what the Jets would want for Trouba the Leafs wouldn't trade.

08 Aug 2018 14:57:45
We've all seen over the last few days how terrible you are at evaluating players by the amount of disagrees you get on your posts.

Young, top pairing RHD don't come on the market every day. There would be a bidding war for him.

Watch some hockey and try to learn a little bit about it before you post next time.

08 Aug 2018 22:52:05
Not that I agree with vbb’s Joe but you’re not new to this site, the disagrees mean absolutely nothing.

08 Aug 2018 23:45:22
True. But he's also been ripped pretty good on his Leaf valuations by fellow Leaf fans the last few days. I guess what I'm getting at is that he is terrible at player values and bases his trade values on who he likes. If he likes the player or they are a shiny new toy, they are worth a ton, if he doesn't like them, they are almost worthless. He always has far too much bias in his evaluations to be taken seriously. So, he is the last guy to trust for objective trade valuation.

09 Aug 2018 04:25:43
I’m the one ripping him Joe. I’ve seen way too many years of the leafs being a bubble team or bottom feeder. I’m excited about their team now but you won’t here me saying much unless it’s in defense of a comment. I’ve been brought down to earth too many times thinking they had a real team. I still don’t think they’re contenders without a stud d man. I think Tampa, Boston and even Buffalo will have something to say about the leafs getting out of the first round again.

09 Aug 2018 06:12:21
I hear ya Leafs17. It was nice having a discussion with someone on this site that didn't turn into a bunch of childish ranting. It doesn't happen very often here.

05 Aug 2018 18:28:17
EDM: RNH, 2019 1st Round Pick
WPG: Trouba, Petan

05 Aug 2018 20:02:55
This trade helps the Oilers more than he Jets as they get a coveted and hard to obtain young 1/ 2 RHD. They also get a center in Petan who can't crack a skilled Jets lineup but would be a solid #3 behind McD and Draisaitl. The Jets could use RNH but would have to trade Little in order to afford him and aren't desperate for a center as they have Roslovic and Appleton that are ready to step up to the big team this year. The 1st would have to be unprotected.

05 Aug 2018 21:21:39
I agree Islandjet this trade would actually make the Jets worse next year. RNH is a good player, but makes our cap situation worse. The slight upgrade at 2C isn't worth giving up a young, top pairing RHD for. The first would be great, but wouldn't help for a couple years.
We'd be filling a small hole at C by creating a huge hole on D.

05 Aug 2018 22:09:56
I feel like oilers fans underate their defense and overrate their offense they need wingers more then defense.

31 Jul 2018 14:30:28
Deadline trade:

OTT: Duschene
WPG: 1st Round Pick 2019, Stanley, Harkins

31 Jul 2018 15:27:02
I'm not saying its an unfair package its just that after this season Duschene is an UFA and would want a big raise and the Jets already have to extend, Wheeler, Laine, Connor, Copp, Dano and Trouba next year and they wouldn't be able to fit him in under the cap.

31 Jul 2018 20:20:21
Does anyone else know that his name is Duchene? Like its not hard to spell it the right way holy every post.

31 Jul 2018 20:49:39
Actually his name is Matt. His family name is Duchene.

31 Jul 2018 22:31:11
Would deffinetley be a rental, as to what IslandJet was saying., however if they are in need of that one peice for another cup run, may want to explore it.

31 Jul 2018 23:21:59
I agree Islandjet. I think AJ01 is forgetting there is a salary cap. Duchene would be a great pickup, the Jets just can't afford him.

01 Aug 2018 02:01:13
I highly doubt Ottawa would basically give away what seems to be the 1st overall draft pick for a few scraps (very late 1st, Stanley, Harkins)

Not saying that Stanley Harkins and a late 1st is not good, its just that for the first overall pick (which is what Ottawa basically paid for duchene), the return is weak

01 Aug 2018 02:13:49
salary retention would be the only to justify that package anyway.

01 Aug 2018 03:15:10
Even as a rental, that is a bit much. Stastny only cost a first and a decent prospect, not 2.

01 Aug 2018 06:29:07
Duchene is a tier above Stastny.

01 Aug 2018 22:36:22
as a rental piece: winnipeg would say yes, but i see them wanting to get affordable extension soon after because i don't see them paying that much to lose them like statsny

as long term: winnipeg says no because no resign guarentee.

31 Jul 2018 14:28:39
WPG: Little
VAN: Horvat


WPG: Little

31 Jul 2018 15:04:14
Easy no from Canucks and Oilers lol.

31 Jul 2018 15:09:42
lolololol literal downgrade in skill and age. terrible for van and edm.

31 Jul 2018 15:16:49
I can't see either the Canucks or Oilers ever doing these trades. The Jets would have to add.

31 Jul 2018 16:05:27
Schifele for Sutter
Schifele for R. Strome.

31 Jul 2018 21:40:43
I guess we know who AJ cheers for.

31 Jul 2018 22:40:20
vb for the win.

31 Jul 2018 23:24:13
Totally unrealistic. How would you pitch those trades to Edmonton and Vancouver? What incentive do they have to make those trades?

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.

25 Jul 2018 18:08:10
WPG: Trouba
BUF: Ristolainen

25 Jul 2018 18:16:40
Not for me. Ristolainen is good on the power play, but terrible defensively. Sabres would need to add.

25 Jul 2018 19:40:55
I would prefer Risto. When does his contract come up? Trouba is fine, but not at what he wants to get paid.

25 Jul 2018 21:58:31
Risto at 5.4mill for 4 more seasons is worth more. I like Trouba better as a player. But 1 year $5.5 mill and then another fight to sign him makes me weary.

25 Jul 2018 23:18:25
I actually think this helps both teams Risto has been provin he can log more hard minutes more then Trouba. He’s played over 30 minuets a game at times on a train wreck of a defense he has tremendous potential imo he’s big and has a great shot. Trouba is much more proven defensively tho and would pair better with Dahlin.

26 Jul 2018 16:14:26
@vbb, some good points. I just think the cost certainty makes Buffalo day no. They know they have a really good you g RHD for 4 more years at a very fair cap hit. Why change unless there’s a problem where you have to? To move that asset for a similar age, same handidness, same position player and risk having Trouba refuse to sign or only sign one year again and walk himself into UFA would cripple them.

26 Jul 2018 21:53:43
Yah contract uncertainty would definitely way in And you’re probably buffalo declines. I think Winnepeg takes this because of Troubas unwillingness to resign to an reasonable contract. I feel like long term a Dahlin-Risto line would be pretty weak defensively compared to a Dahlin-Trouba line.

27 Jul 2018 04:21:35
I would do this trade if I were Chevy but I think that Buffalo would need reassurance from Trouba's camp that he would resign. If the Jets and Trouba are in a sign then trade situation the Jets they would want more than Risto. So Buff shouldn't do this trade unless they have Trouba locked up long term.

27 Jul 2018 19:20:55
Buffalo does not touch this trade risto is way better and still has upside and is better defensively and is meaner then Trouba.

27 Jul 2018 19:21:40
Marcus joe if you think that you need to watch more hockey. Risto is the better dman watch games not look at stupid corsi numbers.

27 Jul 2018 19:25:02
There is a small group in the hockey world who think risto is one of the worst defenceman in the league. I think his value on here like most places are inflated by putting up points on the PP. I won't go as far to say he's among the worse but he's really not good when he's not on the powerplay. could still have a little to do with the team he's playing on and being forced to play on the top pair when he should be on the 2nd or 3rd pair while at 5 on 5.

29 Jul 2018 05:32:52
It’s pretty hard to look good as a deffensman on buffalo.

24 Jul 2018 15:39:37
Could there be a deal around tanev to the jets for triuba?

Canucks trouba

Jets tanev, sutter 50 percent retained and a 4th becomes a second if he signs

24 Jul 2018 16:41:13
Nope. Not close. Sutter is a fourth liner. You would have to add something more valuable to Tanev if you wanted to get the Jets attention.

24 Jul 2018 17:31:21
I can't see Van making this deal as they seem to be in a rebuilding mode and as good an addition Trouba would be the Jets would want some young pieces the Canucks would be foolish to trade.

24 Jul 2018 19:15:24
Don’t think it’s enough to get Trouba but as IJ said, doesn’t make sense for Canucks anyway. Trouba is only signed one year, Canucks aren’t ready to compete and if there’s any truth tonhim not wanting to be in a Canadian market, he definitely wouldn’t leave one of the top contenders for the Canucks.

24 Jul 2018 19:16:05
Everyone knows when trouba is a Ufa he's going to the east coast USA so only got control of him for this year and next, only nyi, nyr, philly, teams like this so they should be only teams looking at him if they want him more then a couple year rental and an expensive one.

25 Jul 2018 11:38:15
Tanev and Trouba are a lot closer in value then that Tanev have a down year like Faulk did he is still a goodbye dman.

25 Jul 2018 11:39:48
And sutter is better then little so he would play higher up in winn.

23 Jul 2018 23:33:56
MON: Gallagher
WPG: Perrault

24 Jul 2018 04:14:09
Why on earth would Montreal even consider that? Gallagher is probably the best player they have.

24 Jul 2018 13:37:19
I can't see the Habs ever making this trade. Gallagher is younger, cheaper and tougher than Perreault and should bring something better in return.

25 Jul 2018 11:33:34
Ya no thanks from me unless Jacob Trouba is part of the deal.

23 Jul 2018 23:31:15
WPG: Trouba
NYI: Bellows, Dobson

24 Jul 2018 04:19:13
Good players, but the Jets would need a roster player back. They can't take an all futures trade for Trouba.

24 Jul 2018 05:09:54
Agree jets are in win now mode.

24 Jul 2018 05:53:59
No from NYI. Those will be core players in the next few years for the islanders.

24 Jul 2018 12:46:52
No from both. Islanders need those guys to build a new core around Barzal instead of one year of Trouba before another contract fight, and jets need players to win now.

24 Jul 2018 13:46:41
As much as I would like to say no to this trade, if Poolman can step up to be a regular on the Jets roster I would make this trade. The Jets would be getting 2 A prospects and rid themselves of a headache in Troubas agent. I'm not sure NYI would want to give up 2 key pieces of their future.

24 Jul 2018 15:12:12
Bellows is overrated imo he had a great world juniors but aside from that he’s been underwhelming.

22 Jul 2018 17:12:35
WPG: Trouba
TOR: Liljegren, 1st Round 2019

22 Jul 2018 18:05:39
If the Jets can't sign Trouba long term for $6 mil or less this is a trade is one that they may do. They get a future right shot d-man who could be very good and a high 1st rounder. Would the Leafs want to give up a bit of their future for a player who would be their top right shot d-man but a costly one? The question is would the Leafs make this trade? Next year they will have over $40 mil tied up in 5 players and adding a $7 mil per year Trouba would really put them in cap problems.

22 Jul 2018 18:48:59
A Trouba deal? That’s rare to see AJ.

22 Jul 2018 19:25:29
I’d take this for sure from a leafs POV.

22 Jul 2018 20:11:32
Trouba got 5.5 shmillion for 1 year.

22 Jul 2018 20:36:01
thts a reasonable trade I think. I would want to be sure he isn’t going to pull the same crap though and be a difficult signing. 1year $5.5 mill is on the right price range but wouldn’t trade liljegren and a 1st for one year of a guy that’s going to demand too much again next year.

22 Jul 2018 21:21:38
I think we'll all have to revisit this trade discussion next summer. The logical thing for the Jets to do now is hang on to Trouba for next year's playoff run and see where it goes next summer.

23 Jul 2018 01:12:11
After Winnipeg wins the cup, Trouba will think he’s worth 10 million next summer.

23 Jul 2018 07:24:19
I would not from leafs POV. And why would the leafs 1st be high islandjet it will be late first unless something crazy happens. I say I wouldn’t move that package because you have to keep your young assets when you are going to having high paid players and 7 mill for Trouba is to much I feel he misses to many games and just don’t think he is worth that package.

23 Jul 2018 15:38:48
The pick will be no lower then it was last year I could see the leafs making the conference finals. Don’t think they’re better then Pittsburgh or Tampa with Karlsson.

23 Jul 2018 20:48:40
Islandjet. you make me laugh. You mention torontos cap trouble yet fail to mention the jets. With all the players they need to sign you can say good bye to a few of them. They are far worse off than toronto.

21 Jul 2018 22:31:45
Jacob Trouba

Nazem Kadri
Andrew Nielsen
2018 1st Round Pick

WPG really shores up their center depth as well as picks up a few prospects and TOR finally gets that solid top 4 right handed D-man they're after. Tavares signing makes this a viable option for the Leafs.


21 Jul 2018 22:58:49
I’d say no from Toronto. Never bad to have depth at center and I don’t think Trouba is worth all that. Also leafs won’t be able to support his demands of 7 mil/ year. Think Toronto should go for somebody else.

21 Jul 2018 23:19:56
Kadri=Nylander=Trouba ( on good contract)

21 Jul 2018 23:43:53
Kadri is a good player, I personally don't see him as a fit on our second line. Laine and Ehlers need a slick, playmaking center like Stastny. Kadri strikes me as more of a shooter.

22 Jul 2018 02:55:49
memarcusjoe the Jets already have the perfect fit between Laine and Ehlers, its Jack Roslovic. Now its up to Maurice not to foolishly start the season with Little between Ehlers and Laine and have Roslovic on the 3rd line as a winger, or as the 4th line center.

22 Jul 2018 05:07:34
Lol Mcjesus, do you not know how arbitration works? You're posting on every Trouba trade "no he's asking for 7Mil".

22 Jul 2018 06:06:27
Keep Kadri and his 30+ goals for $4.5 mill all day long. Jets need a guy like Paul statsny. A guy like Paul statsny just needed Vegas tho lol.

22 Jul 2018 06:07:45
@islandjet, I agree, I'd like to see Roslovic get a shot there. I just not sure Maurice will put 3 young guys on a line together.

22 Jul 2018 16:34:18
Uglyguybabes this is the first post iv said that lol.

23 Jul 2018 06:11:37
Changing his name from hotguybabes to uglyguybabes. nice.

23 Jul 2018 17:40:50
Easy e. couple of things

Pacioretty last 5 yrs= 158 goals
Simmonds last 5 yrs= 144 goals

How was simmonds in dressing room when you played for the flyers? Oh wait. you didnt.

23 Jul 2018 18:06:11
Good call balsam. But what do you think about Kadri/ Nielsen for Trouba?!?

20 Jul 2018 22:42:29
Jets : Trouba, Little.
Leafs : Mathews, 2019 1st.

20 Jul 2018 23:06:13
I’d like to keep that 1st. Could we swap the late 1st out for liljegren and marner?!

20 Jul 2018 23:18:21
I doubt Toronto is going to trade the best player in the history of hockey for a terrible defenseman and an old, overrated center.

20 Jul 2018 23:26:49
Not enough from Toronto. Little easily replaces Matthews as #1/ 2 center and a late 1st does not get you Trouba. Try again.

21 Jul 2018 00:38:01
Little old? No overrated yes he’s essentially Tyler Bozak. Trouba is a good 3rd dman was a strong dcore.

21 Jul 2018 03:17:20
Can Matthews play center well? He’d probably be battling Roslovic for second line centre.

And wheres the replacement dman for Trouba? Winnipeg can’t lose a star defensive defesemand not get a dman back. Add Rielly and then it becomes closer. look LIttle matches Matthews but a 1st is way worse than Trouba.

21 Jul 2018 12:50:44
I have looked up and down the postings for this trade and can't find who you meant as the "best player in the history of hockey"

21 Jul 2018 15:37:35
Your sarcasm and hate for the leafs balsam was coming off a sarcastic remark to begin with from a bias jets fan. Take a look through the archives on all of your comments on leafs proposals. It’s quite comical the garbage that comes from your mouth.

21 Jul 2018 17:25:36
The Jets and Leafs would not be good training partners as any right shot d-men the Jets would trade Winnipeg would want a d-man in return. It is common knowledge that the Leafs are pathetically weak at D and have nobody, other than Rielly that would be able to make the Jets NHL roster. As for this trade proposal there is no way Matthews gets traded unless the Leafs run into cap problems in the future.

21 Jul 2018 19:44:05
Lmao guess 50point Jake Gardiner or Zaitsev (excluding contract) or Dermott isn't as good as Joe f’n Morrow @islandjet. Good to know tho. Have fun playing and paying Dmitry Kulikov tho.

22 Jul 2018 06:14:04
And islandjet shows he’s just memarcusjoes puppet haha the fact that he thinks Matthews would be the one traded for cap reasons shows how dumb he actually is lol

It’s like saying if oilers can’t find someone to take lucic for cap relief, they will start shopping mcdavid lol these 2 are making Winnipeg look like the most clueless fans in hockey.

28 Jul 2018 18:42:15
Unbiased Jim you are always name calling which shows how weak your arguments are. You are not unbiased but a shill for the defensive-less Leafs. The likely hood of the Jets trading with the Leafs are remote at best.

30 Jul 2018 17:38:54
Thanks leafs17. But really. you think matthews is the best player in the history of hockey?

And I am the comical one. Lol.

20 Jul 2018 20:40:10
Winnipeg: Trouba
Edmonton: Draisaitl

20 Jul 2018 21:04:08
I doubt Edmonton would do it and the Jets can't afford Draisaitl's contract. But value wise as long as Draisaitl can actually start carrying a line as a 2C, it is pretty good. 2C for a top pairing RHD.

20 Jul 2018 21:46:52
Memarcuswindowlicker approves.

20 Jul 2018 22:03:27
Oh boy. much rather Draisatl to Trouba.

20 Jul 2018 22:09:44
Lmao no from oilers come on joe.

20 Jul 2018 22:12:59
Edmonton needs Drat way more than they need Trouba. Also value wise it isn’t there. Imo. Especially Trouba thinking he’s a top 10 dman in the league. Not a chance.

20 Jul 2018 23:02:47
Sorry guys, I was just trying to make a point of how ridiculous all the Trouba trades were getting. I really didn’t think biasjoe would think this is fair.

20 Jul 2018 23:29:18
I prefer you keep Draisaitl as well. The longer the Oilers have that much tied up in bad contracts up front and keep rolling out an ECHL quality defense, the longer they stay anchored to dead last in the West.

20 Jul 2018 23:47:12
Ya crap, back to back 70 point - 22 year old, big solid strong centers are so terrible to have. Sucks.

21 Jul 2018 03:18:53
Have fun resigning your core Marcus, especially when Trouba who ain't even the number one dman on your team wants 7 million and has temper tantrums because he's playing behind Buff.

21 Jul 2018 06:20:45
HAhahaha wtf sick chirp.

21 Jul 2018 09:12:37
ECHL quality defence? Larsson is just as good as Trouba. Klefbom and nurse are just as good as and if not better then Myers. Not do mention they grabbed Bouchard who has top 2 potential and have Bear in the pipe line. I’m pretty sure Klefbom would score 3 goals per period in the ECHL.

21 Jul 2018 11:26:53
Wow vbb. 👏👏👏. Salute - No sarcasm there.

21 Jul 2018 17:26:46
Vbb you just mentioned how to defence on Edmonton who are as good as Myers. The jets bottom pairing defence.

21 Jul 2018 17:31:42
This trade would only happen if the Oilers retained $2 mil per year of Draisaitls contract.

21 Jul 2018 19:44:36
@IJ your so biased, its not even funny, lol.

Your idea of a realistic trade is probably Nico Hischier for Trouba. Lol.

21 Jul 2018 23:25:54
Myers/ Moreissy is their 3rd best dman.

22 Jul 2018 00:09:06
Not even close vb. Myers is fourth at most probably fifth when kulikov is actually health. Myers has issues in his end.

22 Jul 2018 06:17:31
Haha alpaca. 2 weeks ago jets fans were saying Myers would be top pair on half the teams in the league. Now vbb names guys better and just to discredit that you say Myers is terrible lol. New level of little man syndrome. Most clueless fans.

22 Jul 2018 15:14:43
You'll notice none of those were me.

22 Jul 2018 15:59:08
You’re saying Kulikov is better than Myers lol and that no oilers Dman is as good as either of them. That makes you, islandjet and MarcusJoe all one. If you did a one to one comparison of why you would rather Myers over klefbom, I can respect that. Just coming out and saying no one on Edmonton is as good as Kulikov who was being scratched in buffalo after being traded from Florida for very little is clearly just trash. Klefbom and Larson are clearly better than Kulikov. And better than Myers.

23 Jul 2018 06:32:50
Never commented on edmontons defence. I simply pointed out that he compared them to Myers. Your reading an awful lot into my comments. And yes a healthy kulikov is as good or better than Myers.

20 Jul 2018 20:39:28
Winnipeg: Trouba
Toronto: Matthews

20 Jul 2018 21:06:06
Yes, let's see you talk Leaf fans into this. A generational player, 10 or 20 times better than McDavid for a crappy D man?

20 Jul 2018 21:38:19
ok this is obviously a bad trade but . Mathews 20x better than Mcdavid? that's a joke, Mcdavid is the best hockey player in the world . Mathews is Maybe Top 10.

20 Jul 2018 21:38:59
How about what a jets fan thinks biasjoe? Is Matthews good enough to carry a 2nd line? Is that enough to offer for a top 10 d man in the league?

20 Jul 2018 22:04:55
Who said Trouba was crappy and who said Matthews is so much better than McDavid? Marcus get your head checked please.

20 Jul 2018 22:41:38
No from jets Trouba is a god. He deserves 10 million because he’s a true #1rhd. It’s McDavid or bust- Jets fans.

20 Jul 2018 23:32:16
I for one have never heard anyone say that Trouba was crappy and I don’t even think that vbb’s would say Matthews is better than McDavid. Biasjoe has had a rough couple days to say the least.

21 Jul 2018 03:19:51
Trouba>EKs wheels + Kanes hands + Charas height + McDavids hockey IQ.

21 Jul 2018 05:55:17
I don't understand why everyone overvalues leafs players? I obviously don’t think he’s as good as McDavid he’s on the Eichel level imo. Maybe abit better ( 40 goals vs what ever Eichel got but yah ) .

21 Jul 2018 18:04:37
I never thought I would agree with vbbbvvbb. Matthews has shown in the playoffs that he is not a generational talent but a good player.

20 Jul 2018 20:38:56
Winnipeg: Trouba
Ottawa: Karlsson

20 Jul 2018 20:58:24
Ottawa adds. Karlsson is inconsistent and injury prone, whereas trouba is a star in the making, leading the jets to the conference finals.

20 Jul 2018 21:08:30
Nope. Jets can't afford to pay Karlsson what he wants with the players they have coming up for renewal.

Plus, as Montreal taught us, you don't trade a really good young defenseman for a really good old one.

20 Jul 2018 22:45:17
Crazyattack- I agree. Soccer has Renoldo, Basketball had Jordan, Baseball had Babe Ruth and the NHL has Trouba.

20 Jul 2018 23:08:29
Vbb that might be your best response ever lol.

21 Jul 2018 04:05:24
@vbbbvvbb finally the first time I agree with you, except its spelled Ronaldo

21 Jul 2018 05:56:18
Sorry man I don’t follow anysport besides hockey lol.

21 Jul 2018 16:15:55
And marcusjoe, you could also say that trade would never happen because Karlsson would never move to Winnipeg. Like Trouba has tried to leave and will again, his rights are owned there and didn’t want to be there. Why would a guy who could go to 31 cities be there. Couldn’t convince Paul Statsny to leave $750k on the table to live there for a chance to win, not getting a Karlsson anyway.

21 Jul 2018 17:34:41
No chance as the Jets won't be able to sign Karlsson for what he wants, unless the Jets trade him for what they would want.

21 Jul 2018 17:50:35
This is laughable easy Ottawa says no and walking away.

20 Jul 2018 17:52:37
WPG: Trouba
TOR: Nylander

20 Jul 2018 18:23:13
Are you done yet?

20 Jul 2018 19:46:05
Value wise this is not awful I would make this trade.

20 Jul 2018 20:14:56
Value wise it is close but the Jets would want a good d-man back or a bundle of prospects/ draft choices as they don't need another forward as their top two lines are set.

20 Jul 2018 20:17:53
I would be interested. But would have to know that trouba is committed to the leafs and signed reasonable. Not worth trading Nylander for a guy that we have to fight with every year or 2 over money. Or a guy that’s not going to show up to camp because he would rather be in the States.

20 Jul 2018 20:34:25
Only if the Jets scouts were absolutely convinced Nylander could play center. If Nylander is only a winger, then no.

20 Jul 2018 20:48:17
Probably a no from Toronto. if they pay him what he is asking i would be hesitant - if he was around the 5.5M/ season for 6 years i would be happy. But not at the $7M he is asking.

20 Jul 2018 22:45:59
Well he's asking high because the team is offering low. Hopefully to meet a lot closer to his number than their number. $5.5M is right in the middle. I can see them settling above $5.5M tho. Maybe like $6.25M or something?
But ya, you ask high, settle little Lower. We all know this.

20 Jul 2018 23:10:41
If Trouba came with a 6x6 deal I’d be in.

21 Jul 2018 05:26:14
I would think holl and brown with a 3rd would get this trade done for trouba.

21 Jul 2018 08:14:38
If someone says no to this its def WPG.
