MTL: Dvorak

ARI: 1st & 3rd (Carolina '22) + Ylonen

Montreal completes the deal by sending a fruit basket & chocolates to Carolina's Tom Dundon, with a thank-you card for his expen$ive hissy-fit.

(Ironically, KK + Ylonen would NOT have gotten Dvorak, but this may.)


1.) 30 Aug 2021 19:37:10
Kk and Ylonen would definitely get you Dvorak.

2.) 30 Aug 2021 20:51:29
Dvorak is probably a little better than Kotkaniem right now but Dvorak isn't going to get any better than he is now while Kotkaniemi still has the potential to be much better in the long run.

3.) 30 Aug 2021 22:23:00
Dvorak has a lot of suitors. I doubt KK and Ylonen would have gotten you Dvorak.

Dvorak is a great piece at the right price. I wouldn't give up more than this.

EDM: Koskinen & Turris

ARI: 2023 2nd & 2022 5th

I can't BELIEVE EDM ownership allowed former GM Chiarelli to sign Koskinen to that ridiculous contract, and then fired him 2 days later??

I also can't believe EDM didn't buy out Koskinen this off-season when they could have for 1.5M this season and next, and saved 1.5M off the remaining 4.5M owed.

EDM needs cap relief, ARI is acquiring picks. It's painful trading picks for space, but get it done EDM, and you'll have a few extra nickles to spend in the bargain bin of unsigned UFA'S before camp.

Oilers will give him at least a month or two to see how there goalies are holding up before having to dump him. Who’s a better option out there right now?

2.) 27 Aug 2021 19:27:05
I think you're probably right Ebs, but wow. Koskinen's contract is one of the worst organizational failings EDM has done in recent years.

BUF - Eichel

MTL - 2021 1st & 2nd, 2022 1st & 2nd, Kotkaniemi


1.) 24 Jul 2021 01:50:24
Not bad but I think Buffalo asks for more especially with Montreal's first round pick tonight being the 2nd last (30th OA) .

They probably ask for something Montreal doesn't want to do like making it Suzuki instead of KK or adding Caufield. They might settle for adding Romanov or another 1st round pick.

That's if they decide to take less than they've been asking so far.

2.) 24 Jul 2021 19:36:59
I wouldn't include Romanov or Caufield on ANY trade.

3.) 24 Jul 2021 22:57:26
@Chickenfoot Neither would I if I were in Bergevin's shoes, just saying that's probably what Buffalo would ask for.

4.) 25 Jul 2021 15:43:37
Kotkaniemi-romanov- 1st pick 2022 and 2023.

Buf trades Jack Eichel to MTL for:


Buf retains 4M in the first season only of this deal.

BUF gets a huge hall that is sellable to the Sabres' fan base. They also get first crack a resigning Tatar and Danault if they fit.

MTL gets a #1 centre NOW, and would still have 11 picks for June's draft. They also have roughly 1M left to add at the deadline.


1.) 04 Mar 2021 21:26:07
How is this a huge haul.

2.) 04 Mar 2021 22:12:38
You can't retain just one year (unless that's changed recently)

3.) 04 Mar 2021 23:49:20
So why would Buffalo trade Eichel for KK and basically a 1st as lower picks perdentage of players don’t make it.
Both other forwards can walk for nothing at end of year.

Your obviously a Mtl fan, but at least bring an offer that’s not laughable.

And you can’t retain salary for only part of the contract!

4.) 05 Mar 2021 00:55:17
Clearly you know very little as you can’t retAin on 1 year also this is awful for Buffalo. Tatar and Danault hold zero value to a rebuilding team.

To Detroit:

1st ('21)
2nd ('22)

To Tampa:


With only a handful of teams with 9M+ in Cap Space, buying Cap Space is going to be expen$ive. Stevie Y probably has a few potential fits on Julian's desk. I don't see Ottawa, Nashville, LA or the Devils making an offer to take that turd of a deal, and Stevie probably knows it.


1.) 09 Dec 2020 21:31:09
Literally any team with enough cap space would take that deal IMO. Probably a handful of teams that would try to make space for that deal even.

- Philly can't fit him under the cap, even with CGY withholding 50%

- Cgy seems to be in "do something now" mode. Sutter didn't come in for a rebuild, and I'm not sure Treliving would be chosen to rebuild the team anyway.

- Allison is injured.

Hey Pinball, Washington has been trying HARD to trade Kuznetsov. I understand the trade from their point of view.

I don't know why the leafs would want a troubled Kuznetsov at 7.8M x 4 years though? I think they'd rather get a D-man back for Rielly. Kuz has some issues, and I just don't understand why your leafs would want to add another big salary scoring forward to the mix.

Yeah, I have to agree with MoxNix here.

Brown has size, but is there something else to his game? I haven't seen it yet.

I wouldn't take Kadri at ANY price.

He doesn't understand how to control emotions when the games matter most. This has been proven 3 time.

I wouldn't take Kadri for a 7th. I don't want him near my team, period.

NYLANDER, sadly Eichel can't even have the surgery he wants till he's traded to a team that accepts that surgery.

I agree BUF would be smarter to get him healthy, but I just don't see them doing the right thing. The situation is toxic, and with both sides dug in, I feel badly for the fans in Buffalo.

I hope for all concerned that Eichel gets traded, gets healthy, and Buf fans get something back to cheer for.
