The islanders offer sheet to marner rumour is really picking up some speed.


1.) 05 Jul 2019 18:37:59
If you see you them moving out salary you know something’s up.

2.) 05 Jul 2019 19:26:54
They don't have to move out salary they can offer sheet and still have all summer to get under the cap. Move out Leddy and bring up Dobson and that solves that issue.

3.) 05 Jul 2019 21:18:33
Marner is listening but trust me he isn't signing an offer sheet from anyone.
He wants to stay here not leave.

4.) 05 Jul 2019 21:35:56
Habby, if you are trying to move a player to rid yourself of the cap hit, do you think you would be putting yourself in a competitive position to do so if you were already well over the cap?

Opposing GM’s would know they have you over a barrel at that point.

5.) 05 Jul 2019 22:43:46
Marner can sign an offer sheet to speed up the process like aho did. Aho didn't want to leave either. And he'd know theyd match.

6.) 05 Jul 2019 23:01:53
Unsportsmanlike that’s true but would you rather work to move dump a contract before knowing if you need the space or take a lesser return to make sure you get the player you’re going after? That’s how I see it anyway.

7.) 05 Jul 2019 23:56:25
It's Ottawa not the Islanders.

8.) 06 Jul 2019 01:32:53
@unsportsmanlike we are talking about nick lefddy here not Patrick Marleau islanders could move him at any time and they wouldn’t have to pay to do so.

9.) 06 Jul 2019 10:51:05
Nevertheless — do you not see how appearing to NEED to trade him would impact his return? You’re not doing yourself any favours by putting yourself over the cap first.

10.) 06 Jul 2019 17:28:22
Actually they wouldn't need to trade Leddy they could move someone else or put somebody on waivers. I don't think they would have to clear a lot of space. But in certain situations what your saying is true it's just in this situation I don't think it would make much difference if any.



30 Jun 2019 23:52:10
Hearing deslaurier is traded too


1.) 30 Jun 2019 23:56:30
To Anaheim for a 4th lol.

2.) 01 Jul 2019 00:39:48
Montreal clearing out cap for something big

Gardiner or Duchene? Both?

3.) 01 Jul 2019 03:37:51
Ya. not a good trade IMO.

4.) 01 Jul 2019 05:44:24
Maybe lee and ferland?



30 Jun 2019 01:35:02
Kessel to Arizona




22 Feb 2019 20:00:46
Jensen and a 5th to wash for bowey and 2nd


1.) 22 Feb 2019 20:59:12
Seems like Washington overpaid, just my opinion.

2.) 22 Feb 2019 22:23:29
i agree dsc.

3.) 22 Feb 2019 23:16:09
Yeah I'd sooner bowey to be honest.

4.) 22 Feb 2019 23:56:11
I personally never head of Jensen before the recent trade rumours on tsn, then I saw the deal. I don't know much about the guy but I'm thinking washington overpaid. Bowey is a solid prospect and a 2nd round pick on top of that? i don't know.

5.) 22 Feb 2019 22:57:30
I like Bowey, lots of people are saying he's a terrible defenceman so Idk. His numbers are good for a young defensemen tho.

6.) 23 Feb 2019 02:13:53
Boom boom he's not the fastest of skaters but he has all the tools to be a 3rd pair dman. Jensen isn't much more then that if any and he's in his prime. caps must like him though they signed him for 4 years.

7.) 23 Feb 2019 21:42:35
Jenson is good tho so it's not that bad for Caps. Bowie looks good but atm Jenson is the better D.



09 Feb 2019 16:35:38
Habs trade schlemko and froese to philly for weise and folin. The weise man cometh lol


1.) 09 Feb 2019 18:11:26
I love when people react "unbelievable" to a confirmed trade. change of scenery trade?

2.) 09 Feb 2019 19:14:25
Yes it is pkane but the habs needed a little depth on the right side D with juulsen out. So it might come in handy there too.

3.) 09 Feb 2019 21:16:31
I really like this for Habs. if. Weiss is same player he was. He played his heart out on Habs. maybe not the most skilled or talented, but I never remember being disappointed with his play. he's a 4th liner, who acts like a top liner, jus doesn't have the skill to be one but bring energy, unlike Agostino, who also thinks he's a top line guy. but is jus a mess.

4.) 09 Feb 2019 21:24:44
makes sense habby, is Folin much of an upgrade over Schlemko, i don't know much about him. weise seemed like a good fit in his previous time in montreal so that part makes sense.

5.) 09 Feb 2019 22:53:52
Weise is getting buried in the minors, so it looks like Habby is right in saying Montreal did this for depth for the right side defense. Folin was a victim of Flyer’s depth on defense. He’s not a bad player, but was healthy scratch this year a lot. He should see more ice time in Montreal.

I’m not too sure how this trade benefits Philly though, since they buried both Froese and Schlemko.

6.) 09 Feb 2019 23:00:50
Well he's a righty and schlemko is a lefty. Schlemko is actually better then he has shown in montreal injuries killed his chance of playing here. But he was never getting back into the habs lineup if folin gets a chance he could suprise. I don't see an issue with his skill set preventing him from being able to hold down a 3rd pair position. That being said they could both be in laval for the remainder of their contracts too. From the flyers POV I'm sure they feel the same way about the two players they are getting back. I could see froese coming up and giving them 20 high energy games and you never know a different style could work for schlmko too.

Hey moderator how about digging up another one of those articles like you were posting awhile back. I could use another bit of reading material


{Ed001's Note - I will do when I have time mate. It takes a while to do the research and then write them and I have not had much of that lately! The summer period is the busiest for the sites, in terms of traffic, so I don't tend to have time to do anything much other than keep the sites running.}

1.) 05 Oct 2019 12:37:15
Yeah I hear ya.

{Ed001's Note - but I am glad you are interested in reading them. Nice to know that someone reads something when you invest time and effort into putting them together!}



02 Oct 2019 04:39:26
Is it just me that thinks with redwing being a blues fan and all wouldn't he be better off just ending arguments by saying something like "but the Blues won the cup" or " yeah yeah yeah remind me who the cup champs are again" instead of losing every time by arguing lol. If I live long enough to see the habs win another cup you guys won't be winning any arguments with me that year lol


1.) 02 Oct 2019 15:02:35
My question is if he is such a Blues fan, why does he go by redwing? They use to be bitter rivals back in the old Norris division days.
I'd never be SosaLeafs, or you wouldn't be Bruinsy2? I dunno.
And yes, hopefully we can see the Habs win a cup, and end all the arguments that way. I'm getting old, isn't looking good lol.

2.) 02 Oct 2019 15:28:58
He is the old Colt. %100.
He Was sad about the Shattenkirk return and the bashing he took after what he was screaming was his value. So he left for a while. Then came back under the name Redwing.
If this Thomas guy wasn’t a Blue, GTD he wouldn’t be sucking him off this bad.

3.) 02 Oct 2019 15:32:33
And is he also Tank? Or was?



06 Sep 2019 21:57:04
I thought I would check out the tsn page today to see what they were saying about the gardiner signing but it appears Austin Matthews new moustache is today's big story on there lol. He does look like a 70s porn star though. Hopefully he keeps it and let's it grow Paul Maclean style


1.) 07 Sep 2019 10:01:32
He’s got nothing on George Parros.

2.) 07 Sep 2019 21:33:02
Not yet but it's a decent start.

3.) 09 Sep 2019 21:29:11
Closest one to Parros was Sam Bennett's Lanny MacDonald moustache



15 Jul 2019 20:37:51
Number hockey news story of the day willie Nylander changes his jersey number again. Can someone make a trade or send an offer sheet or something?


1.) 15 Jul 2019 21:04:28
Number 1.

2.) 15 Jul 2019 21:10:48
U should call up Bergy and tell him to offer sheet Rantanen 5 years x 7.5 mill.

3.) 15 Jul 2019 21:45:18
Yeah or marner for 5 years at 10.4.

4.) 15 Jul 2019 22:07:29
You guys can stop with the Nylander proposals now he’s staying a leaf :)

5.) 15 Jul 2019 22:13:01
@vbbb wasn't a trade proposal bud and I hope he stays a leaf for his whole career.

6.) 16 Jul 2019 00:00:58
Yes I know directed at DetroitMantha.

7.) 16 Jul 2019 10:57:10
I don't know why he's changing his number before getting dealt.

8.) 16 Jul 2019 19:45:07
I heard Nylander for Kotkaniemi.

9.) 16 Jul 2019 20:58:28
I heard it was for alzner.

10.) 16 Jul 2019 21:56:36
Yes, a great signing by Bergevin in Alzner (@mantha NOT habby) Karl Alzner says “ joining the Montreal Canadiens gives him a better chance to win a Stanley cup than he had with the Capitals in Washington. ” quote from sportsnet. ca, NOT Leafs17.

11.) 16 Jul 2019 22:55:25
@leafs17 not anyone else. Alzner said he wanted to win cause he was frustrated with getting bounced in the 2nd round yearly. imagine how frustrating it would have been to get beat every year in the 1st round lol.

12.) 17 Jul 2019 06:27:35
I’ll end the childish stuff because I know you can go on for days habby. Mantha said Dubas was tied for the worst GM in the league and he just stepped in. I didn’t mean to offend you.

13.) 17 Jul 2019 10:50:41
I'm glad to hear that leafs17 like I said before I can keep this going for months not days. But in all honesty I would rather not.

14.) 17 Jul 2019 16:12:39
You are very good at arguing. Are you a defense lawyer by any chance?

15.) 17 Jul 2019 20:11:21
Nope just had a lot of practice lol.

16.) 18 Jul 2019 04:04:01
You guys got to be careful with Leafs17, his feelings are fragile.

17.) 18 Jul 2019 11:53:39
magine how frustrated Alzner must be not even making the playoffs anymore.

18.) 18 Jul 2019 14:58:30
Yeah I know but Laval will have a better team this year maybe he will make the playoffs there this season so he can look forward to that.

19.) 18 Jul 2019 16:10:06
Alzner should be playing in mtl imo, he's actually very solid defensively but just slow. If he works out this summer and improves his skating, he's a solid defensemen imo.

20.) 18 Jul 2019 16:30:56
Welcome back yupper. Not much else to say as an oilers fan eh?

21.) 19 Jul 2019 19:23:37
because everyone's a troll but a leaf fan.



09 Jul 2019 01:36:58
When you take in account contracts and salary cap is there any player in the league who is actually worth 4 1st round picks?


1.) 09 Jul 2019 05:51:35
I’d make the argument for McDavid even at that cap hit. Crosby cap hit is low enough at 8.7 that even paying that for the last half of his contract I don’t think would be terrible.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 07:37:51
Paul George lol.

3.) 09 Jul 2019 08:29:50
Always depends on which pick numbers it is, obviously. But if you assume it's a contending team and the picks are all between 20th and 31st overall, there's actually easily a double digit number of players that are worth that. Easily.

4.) 09 Jul 2019 15:21:50
Alex Lafranier I’d say next Season at the draft he’d be worth it to a a fringe playoff team with good prospect pool like the Avalanche and Maybe the home town Canadians although they should uses a few 1sts on defence.

5.) 09 Jul 2019 15:55:31
If I'm MTL I offer to wichever team has the first overall pick

MTL:Phoeling, Brooks, Suzuki, Romanov

? :1 overall (Lafrenière.

6.) 09 Jul 2019 16:58:05
I could lean toward a leffreniere type I guess. Considering the 3 years of entry level that follows. McDavid I'm not so sure on as he's on Edmonton now and there picks have been pretty high with him. Mackinnon or Jones would be good candidates but there current contracts are starting to get short. Kucherov would be close to worth it maybe.

7.) 09 Jul 2019 17:32:00
@detroitmantha only one of those players were a Montreal first pick. Caufield. Kotkaniemi poehling and sergachev are the last 4 at an average of 13th overall I'm not sure if there is anyone in the league I'd trade thiose 4 players for right now if I have to pay a 10 mil plus per contract for that player as well.

8.) 09 Jul 2019 22:40:44
I know that Habby, I just made an offer for Lafrenière.

9.) 09 Jul 2019 23:24:03
Ok then I probably wouldn’t give that up for him either.

10.) 09 Jul 2019 23:39:46
Doesn't apply to the NHL. The value of first round picks in the NHL is very different to the ones in the NBA.
I don't really follow the NBA but i'm pretty sure guys that are selected after around the 25th overall are expected to be bench players.
Lakers will be good with AD and Lebron so those picks will probably be very late.

11.) 10 Jul 2019 00:06:16
Paul Goege went to the Clippers not the Lakers.

12.) 10 Jul 2019 00:15:54
Yeah but all of the Lakers picks went to New Orleans for AD.

13.) 10 Jul 2019 19:41:53
Yeah, not to mention in the NHL there are 7 rounds and in the NBA there’s only two.
Every league is different with its draft picks so it’s really hard to translate that to a different league.
For example, in the NFL players who are drafted from rounds 1-4 are expected to start in their rookie season. (Obviously not all of them, but most)
In the NHL players need extra years to develop even if they’re like the third overall pick.
In the NBA you’re just basically filling up your bench for cheap.

No it doesn't vbbb but at least he was elite at one point of his career.

That's closer craigger but I think it would have to be a little more going to Dallas this time. maybe not much though as he really isn't living up to his cap hit lately.

Isn't nylander on pace for 50 points? It's not like he's tearing up the ice or anything. Not saying he won't get there but ill hold off on the elite talk for awhile yet.

Neither team would offer that craigger especially not Montreal.

I looked up that trade on there and it seems to me most sens fans didn't like the trade but to be fair I only read a few pages of the replies.
