Off-season Trade:

MTL trades Poehling, Norlinder, 2023 7th (EDM) + Weber's contract

MIN trades Fiala (RFA)

. Minny needs cap relief and likely can't re-sign Fiala. Weber's contract will provide some cap relief on-going to get through the worst of the Suter/Parise buyouts.

. Minny gets a left shot up front to replace Fiala's LW and a D prospect with offensive upside, plus a pick.

.MTL gets a left shot who is young enough to grow with the team (25) and slot in next to Suzuki and Caufield on the first line.

inny is up against it next year. Whether its this or something else, they'll have to make some moves. The GM's have a relationship too and have the pieces to help each other.

Minnesota should easily be able to get a better futures package than that.

2.) 20 Apr 2022 20:41:11
The guy is a point per game… he’ll bring back a whole lot more than that.

3.) 20 Apr 2022 21:51:39
Fiala will get better offers.

4.) 20 Apr 2022 22:39:20
Minny gets better offers than that for Fiala from everyone.

MTL trades Hoffman & Kulak (50% ret)

PIT trades Kapanen, Simon, 2022 1st & 5th + 2023 2nd

- Kap helps the salary fit
- Simon is included to fit the 23-man roster (PIT may be able to find the spot internally as well)


1.) 17 Mar 2022 16:58:01
Horrendous = Terrible Trade for PIT.

2.) 17 Mar 2022 17:10:14
Hoffman is a locker room cancer and worse than Kapanen imo.

3.) 17 Mar 2022 17:49:06
Hey HOCKEY DAD: PIT has been trying to move Kapanen's salary because his play has really fallen off this year. They're also trying to add a gun up front. That was my thinking, but I respect your perspective 100%. 👍.

4.) 17 Mar 2022 20:28:32
I agree with Hockey Dad and Hoffman. Pitts don't need side distractions.

Pitsburgh are probably looking to deal with vancouver around Connor Garland and maybe Kap ends up in a trade scenerio there.

Now you got me thinking what team is desperate enough to take on Hoffman who really has been strugggling point wise but then again. it was a bad habs year.

If his points were up I'd say it would greater his chances of being traded. Kane was traded right? ;)

5.) 17 Mar 2022 21:03:31
It would definitely make me happy, as i'm not a big fan of Hoffman. I don't know to much about his demeanor in the dressing room, but I just don't see anything to special about this guy. Maybe with guys like Crosby and Malkin to fee him the puck, he could be a good sniper for them.

6.) 17 Mar 2022 22:15:07
I hadn't heard anything about dressing room issues, exactly the opposite. (He had a crazy girlfriend though. ) Bad year for all in MTL, and the pens want Kappy gone, I still like that one. Time will tell.

MTL trades Allen (retain 50% this year)

TOR trades 2nd & 4th ('22) + Mikheyev's expiring contract (unless they can free up a roster spot some other way)

I wanted to broaden the trade to include Kulak too but leafs have to create roster space somehow.


1.) 17 Mar 2022 17:01:47
Have to retain the entire remaining term of the contract, can't just retain 1 year.

Allen wants to stay in MTL and TOR won't give up Mikheyev.

OTT trades Forsberg

EDM trades 5th ('22) + 3rd ('23)

- EDM picks up a cheap goalie with sneaky good numbers this season

- OTT gets a couple more picks for an expiring contract

- Change the 3rd to a second if OTT agrees to take pending UFA's Turris or Koskinen back as well to help EDM free up some more deadline cash.


1.) 09 Mar 2022 12:25:18
i'd sooner try to resign forsberg at that cost. i get helping out oilers free up deadline cash for getting koskinen or turris but only upgrading a round to do so when forsberg has been so good for ottawa? i don't see it at all.

2.) 09 Mar 2022 15:56:26
We’ll take back Koskinen and Turris if you replace Forsberg with Murray lol.

3.) 10 Mar 2022 16:51:45
Hockey Dad, that is awesome. Mark my words, Forsberg will move, and it will be a steal. Leafs would want him too but OTT wouldn't offer him up cheap to their provincial rival.

MTL: Weber

MIN: 2nd

Usually you'd expect something in the range of a 3rd or lower, but Minnesota will have debilitating cap issues the next 3 years with the buyouts of Parise and Suter:

- 12.7M
- 14.7M
- 14.7M
- 1.6M
- 1.6M

I believe Weber's contract (4 x 7.87M) is therefore worth more to Minny than any other team because their cap crunch is so acute. Thus the 2nd.

If Price is unable to return, his cap hit of 10.5M would be extremely valuable too. (Who would ever have thought that contracts for players who can't play would have some kind of tradeable value???)


1.) 07 Mar 2022 23:52:10
I feel you are on to something even if it may be off a lil bit. Here me out bro.

LTIR seems to be the new VH ;) and, . maybe a return should be rewarded a wee bit more considering two things.

1) -Minny's 2nd probably feels like a 3rd. so maybe add a prospect

2). (.

2.) 08 Mar 2022 13:28:34
Hahaha. nicely done!

I feel like there's something likely here. I am very curious to see this trade deadline unfold for SO many teams. I feel that this year's deadline will be ridiculous with many teams pushing their chips to the middle of the table, and rebuilding teams reaping some benefits from what some perceive as a wide open field for this year's cup.

3.) 08 Mar 2022 13:30:42
(never knew why 2) came out like that^^^ but.2)= there was not two things wrong with this post. haha.

Hey VB, your opinion is as valid as anyone's. I just have a different opinion.

Wow. that's a pretty big overpay by NJ. I guess I'm a little late with my "disagree" vote, but put me down as an "easy no" on behalf of NJ.

I can't think of anything close to a proper response Pinball. other than "what Moxnix said".

Pinball, there isn't a snowball's chance in h-e-double-hockey-sticks that this or any of the dozens of trades you've suggested over the years ever comes close to happening. You love your team. we get it. But this is just absolutely delusional.
