Frolik to Buffalo for a fourth round pick. Haha. Take that Moneyhands. You think your so smart. Lmfao. I just love seeing someone get their comeuppance. The Winnipeg guys still haven’t learned even after the Trouba embarrassment. Are you just as stubborn or maybe you are starting to realize the true value of your players?

HockeyFanatic

Honestly what a deal for Calgary with Buffalo taking him.
Calgary gets cap space to go get someone else and bonus, they get a pick!
Great deal for Calgary.
Surprised Buffalo too him, guess they need a winger but could have found someone cheaper/ better probably.
Frolik and his contract are worth less than that pic. Lol.
Worth like a 6th with money retained. And Buffalo takes the whole thing. Crazy. I’m jealous. Lol.


2.) 05 Jan 2020 13:16:55
I can’t believe Calgary didn’t have to throw a pick in to dump him. Buffalo must be desperate for someone they think can play in the nhl.


3.) 05 Jan 2020 15:58:28
At that time I believed the Jets should have received more but Pionk and Heinola for Trouba is looking better for the Jets than most people have expected. Trouba and his 7 year $8 mil per contract for what he brings to the Rangers, 6 goals 15 assists makes him look horribly overpaid. Pionk at $3 mil per has 24 points and has been a solid #3 d-man while Heinola had 5 points in 8 games before being sent to Finland looks to be a great prospect. The Jets made out ok.


4.) 05 Jan 2020 19:03:18
It’s still a lot less than what you were saying he would bring in. Nice try. You and slowjoemarcus were saying he would bring much more and you know it.


5.) 05 Jan 2020 22:58:36
Bitter hf you really know zero about the Jets. Chevy ended up getting a very good return from a player that only would be traded to the Rangers. Now he has to have a plan about the Buff situation that Jet fans and haters will question but in the long run be good for the jets.


6.) 06 Jan 2020 03:36:47
Settle down, I don’t remember moneyhands way over valuing Frolik. I agree with yup, a 4th is a good return. If anything West is Best should be letting us know why it didn’t cost a 1st+ to trade Frolik away.

To RANGERS:
Josh HO-SANG

To ISLANDERS
Lias ANDERSSON

Both players have underperformed and asked for a trade. Pretty simple.

HockeyFanatic

1.) 23 Dec 2019 18:10:14
Lias is worth more. Ho-Sang cleared waivers. Puljujarvi for Andersson.


2.) 24 Dec 2019 10:51:36
What makes you think Andersson wouldn’t clear waivers. It’s not like he’s been performing much better. I can’t see a rejuvenated Puljujarvi being dealt for a reclamation project now.


3.) 24 Dec 2019 19:38:40
Sounds like an NHL 20 GM Mode proposal. A waiver pickup for a 7th overall pick.

Do you notice these 2 teams are conference, divisional, and municipal rivals? Whens the last time you heard NYI and NYR made a mid season trade?


4.) 25 Dec 2019 03:54:06
These guys are ahl’ers and not playing nhl. Lol. They might not ever make the nhl at the way they look. This trade doesn’t impact the teams, and Rangers aren’t going to make the playoffs anyway, so it doesn’t impact the decision for Islanders to make a deal or not. Remember when Boston traded Kessel to the Leafs? We’re they not divisional rivals then? But Leafs were a basement team and Boston were contenders so it didn't impact the decision to make the trade.


 

 

22 Dec 2019 17:37:13
To ARIZONA:
Josh HI-SANG

To ISLANDERS:
Christian FISCHER

Both teams take in the others reclamation project. Ho-Sang is better suited for Arizona’s fast style and big Fischer is better suited to Islanders defense style.

HockeyFanatic

1.) 23 Dec 2019 14:34:29
it could work but i don't see it happening.


2.) 23 Dec 2019 15:38:24
Why not? There’s no reason to expect Arizona to want to keep Fischer anymore, and he won’t bring a high return. Hi Sang has better chance of working out for them than a pick.


3.) 23 Dec 2019 17:10:51
Ho Sang cleared waivers. Arizona couldve had him for free.


4.) 23 Dec 2019 18:51:38
Yes vb. We know that. But lots of times teams will trade for a player rather than claim him off waivers. Arizona isn’t exactly a big budget team. Maybe they would rather lose an underperforming asset like Fischer before they take on yet another in Ho-Sang outright.


 

 

22 Dec 2019 06:01:27
BLOCKBUSTER

To CHICAGO
Drew DOUGHTY + Top prospect

To LA:
Jonathon TOEWS + Duncan KEITH

Two teams moving three unloveable contracts trying to make a huge shakeup.

HockeyFanatic

1.) 22 Dec 2019 12:28:55
Dumbest thing I’ve read in awhile.


2.) 22 Dec 2019 13:03:19
No from la. Kings will be looking to add prospects, not reduce them.


3.) 22 Dec 2019 15:34:14
@vb

Sorry, did I forget to mention this was an actual rumor posted, on an actual web site, by an actual analyst, who actually gets paid for his opinion? Oh yeah. You investigate these guys. I forgot.


4.) 22 Dec 2019 16:31:51
HockeyFanatic, what's the source then? that sounds pretty unbelievable. i'd love doughty on chicago but i doubt this would happen. why would LA give up a top prospect and their number 1 d for 2 aging players.


5.) 22 Dec 2019 19:05:29
Yikes, that’s awful. LA says no thanks and laughs while hanging up.


6.) 23 Dec 2019 00:58:23
VB you’ve said a lot more dumb things in the last while. Lol. Good one.


7.) 23 Dec 2019 13:44:37
Doughty has a big contract yes, but in my opinion he gets a better return for L. A than that.


8.) 23 Dec 2019 15:11:06
This was reported by Eklund, he doesn’t have a great track record.


9.) 23 Dec 2019 15:15:00
Lmao any half intelligent person knows Eklund is a clown and is the exact opposite as a source. Yup has more inside analysis then that clown.


10.) 23 Dec 2019 15:16:07
Hahaha this guy’s “source” is Eklund 😂 oh man.


11.) 23 Dec 2019 15:17:52
Eklund posted it. He’s a credible source for rumours isn’t he?


12.) 23 Dec 2019 15:18:22
Lol. HockeyFanatic calling Eklund an actual hockey "analyst".


13.) 23 Dec 2019 15:21:30
And so we are supposed to just think because you make a somewhat funny, though more lame, and oft repeated, response that we all bow down to the word of Vertius. These words are meaningless. Blowing hot air. Like my last fart. You know what the most important question, and by far, the most asked question is don’t you? Why? So tell me, why is Mr. Eklund’s proposal so bad? This is a man who makes significantly more than you for his hockey opinion after all. So what makes you think your words mean more than his to me?


14.) 23 Dec 2019 15:22:42
It's from one of the biggest hacks on the net. Eklund from hockey buzz that guy hasn't been right yet lol.


15.) 23 Dec 2019 15:23:01
My post didn't go through but it’s definitely Eklund and his credibility is about as high as a monkeys.


16.) 23 Dec 2019 15:49:06
Lots of people come to this site specifically to read plagiarized trade rumors from other sites.


17.) 24 Dec 2019 09:24:13
Dont think I've ever read anything that was true from eklund he's basically an internet troll that people pay. Anyone on this site has as much creditability as him.


18.) 24 Dec 2019 18:35:16
This trade is wack. Stop defending it. there's no reason in the universe that EITHER team would want to pull this off. Fans would riot in both cities.

Fanatic: a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal, especially for an extreme religious or political cause.

So basically you're a nut job and nobody can convince you that you're wrong. I'll keep that in mind the next time you drop a garbage trade proposal.


19.) 25 Dec 2019 04:01:54
It’s nice to see you took the time too look up the definition of fanatic. Too bad you didn’t bother to look up the spelling of WHACK at the same time. Your argument loses merit when you use a dictionary to attack me on the definition of a word in my my name but can’t be bothered to spell properly. Considering spellchecker tells you whack is spelled wrong, you deliberately ignored it, making yourself look lazy at the same time. I thought it was funny when you brought up the whole fanatic point though. That gets bonus for originality.


 

 

21 Dec 2019 01:09:00
To TORONTO:
Walman

To ST. LOUIS:
Bracco

Walman is doing pretty good in AHL. So is Bracco. They are the same age and neither is getting a chance on their current teams.

HockeyFanatic

1.) 21 Dec 2019 23:48:39
Must be a perfect trade. Either that or no one knows these two prospects. I thought the Blues guy on here would have something to say at least.


2.) 22 Dec 2019 12:31:30
I don’t really like it. But I also really like Bracco. Don’t hate the deal tho.

Who thinks Kassian deserved to get suspended? I didn’t. I thought he did the right thing by beating the snot out of Tkachuk the coward.

HockeyFanatic

1.) 19 Jan 2020 11:14:11
Beating a player when he clearly didn’t want to fight is very suspension worthy. Not saying what Tkachuk did all night was right but he deserved his suspension


2.) 19 Jan 2020 13:36:59
hits were clean enough, according to nhl player safety

its not like chuck was lining up drias and mcdavid with those big hits, he went after a known gritty player who does the same thing at every opportunity

i mean todays nhl is now throw clean hit and get beat up.

im not a huge fan of chuck or kassian, but to me kassian is the pussy.

tkachuk shouldn't have to "answer the bell" for doing his job.

kassian deserved to be suspended, tkachuk deserved to be body checked, if kassian could skate it wouldn't be an issue because he'd be able to check him.

the answer is now "i don't like you did that clean thing so let's fight"

kassian can take 5 minute majors because he isn't relied upon for anything.

like him or not tkachuk is a star player who plays with an edge, and shouldn't for any reason take 5 minutes in the box or more for kassian.


3.) 19 Jan 2020 16:57:39
Even in the “old” nhl if you ran a player you answered for it. Those hits might have been “legal” but are still dirty. He targeted him and was deliberate attempt to injure. And when you run a guy like that repeatedly, especially a guy like Kassian, you had better be prepared to answer for it.

So if he ran McDavid or Draisaitl like that he deserves to be beat up? But since it was Kassian it’s all good? That’s a load of crap.


4.) 19 Jan 2020 19:02:56
To settle this argument Tkachuk should do the same to Mcdavid the next time and see what happens not calling it either way but it would be interesting.


5.) 19 Jan 2020 20:42:48
Tkachuk has went after McDavid and Draisaitl in the past. He’s a pest that plays on the edge and I like it. But if your going to do agitate a guy like Kassian all game your just looking for a fight. It wasn’t just one hit. Look how Benn answered the bell for his actions the other night. Benns a leader Tkachuk is a pussy.


6.) 19 Jan 2020 20:43:59
But in saying that Kassian definitely deserved a suspension IMO. In the new NHL you can’t beat up someone that isn’t willing to fight. Lol.


7.) 20 Jan 2020 00:53:29
Tkachuk was indicating he wanted to fight by making those hits. Those hits get answered every time the first hit on a superstar like McDavid. Everyone knows you don’t run a star unless your ready to start fight. But he ran Kassian three time. He deserved it.


8.) 20 Jan 2020 01:23:17
Those kids are spoiled brats is what they are. Kassian has had to work a lot harder to get to where he is. He’s got a lot more to lose. Especially with that new contract just being prepared. I can’t blame him for what he did.


9.) 20 Jan 2020 02:51:55
Just because Tkachuk didn’t get suspended for his hits, doesn’t mean they were clean. Virtanen didn’t get suspended for elbowing Perreault in the face, Perry didn’t get suspended for knocking Stalock in the head. Those weren’t clean, they were missed or ignored.
Kassian deserved a fine or maybe 1 game, but player safety really dropped the ball on the rest.


10.) 20 Jan 2020 05:28:36
I don't think he deserved to be suspended, however I'm a fan who still prefers the 80s style of hockey. there was nothing better than Oilers/ Flames back then. Habs/ Nords were fun as well.

So. its exciting, we are all talking about it still., can't wait for next game.
And. I want to see Kassian lay the smack down on Tkachuk. Tkachuk is a good player. however, like I said. like my 80s style. back then, those power forwards could hit, and fight. . his dad played that way. maybe Keith should tell the kid to stand up. be a man.


 

 

22 Dec 2019 18:14:28
Every year it happens. The new kid gets hurt. When is the mhl going to acknowledge that it’s “Instigator” rule is hurting the stars? The injury to Dahlin just tells us all we need to know. A blatant elbow to the head sidelines last years first overall pick indefinitely with concussion, while the perpetrator, a low level player in Cernak, has been suspended for only two games. How is it fair that the most anticipated defense player in a generation gets dealt an illegal shot to the head made with intent to injure and the perpetrator receives just another slap on the wrist? If they want to stop this from happening, the player commuting the act should be suspended as long as the injured player is out of action. In this case, indefinitely.

HockeyFanatic

1.) 22 Dec 2019 23:26:30
Well when its intent to injure I guess it's 2 games when the intent is to kill like chara did to pacioretty then you get nothing lol.


2.) 23 Dec 2019 00:55:29
I’d love to see more fights so I’m all for it.


3.) 23 Dec 2019 01:49:32
Was Patches a rookie when Chara mangled his neck? I guess it doesn’t matter really. That was one of the most disgusting sights in nhl history. Chara should have served a jail term.


4.) 23 Dec 2019 08:54:46
Relax dude, Cernak isn't a "low-level player", he plays Top 4 for TBL. The thing against Dahlin wasn't nice, but there have been far more awful things going on. He got punished as a first time offender, topic closed.


5.) 23 Dec 2019 12:06:23
Easy for you to say because you aren’t the one in a bed right now with a bottle of Advil and the lights out suffering from a concussion. Nothing had changed since Lindros and Savard and Booth. This could be the start to the end of his career and you know it. A flip comment like that tells me all I need to know about your character.


6.) 23 Dec 2019 12:09:56
And yes, Cernak is a low level player. The fact he’s playing top 4 doesn’t make him a great player. It’s completely irrelevant actually. Playing second line defence on a bad team like Tampa just means you are the third or fourth best defenseman in that team. Compared to players like Dahlin or Makar or Heiskenan or the real stars of the game, Cernak is a low level player.


7.) 23 Dec 2019 16:14:38
I agree with triplets, got any shots against my character hockey fan? Some of us still want body checking apart of the game, way too many free passes in today's game. You're just one of the many that wants the refs arm in the air everytime someone's laying on the ice, you bigot.


8.) 23 Dec 2019 17:20:50
I just want the old 5 min penalty’s for fighting.


9.) 24 Dec 2019 01:20:14
Facelift do you even know the definition option of the word bigot? Because you are using it in the wrong way. And I don’t mind the physical play and the fighting. Notice I said the nhl should eliminate the instigator rule? Deliberate intent to injure on one of the games biggest stars should be punished by a lot more than 2 games. It should be punished by a punch in the face and suspension for indefinite period. As for your character, I don’t need to make any comments on it. You already showed everyone what your made of with your stupid comment and misuse of the word bigot.


10.) 24 Dec 2019 08:11:47
Lol what did I just read. Good job embarassing yourself.
"on a bad team like Tampa" - he said, about a team that got 128 pts last year lmao. I bet you've never watched Cernak play for a second besides the 10 sec clip of the Dahlin hit.
Actually, I'd say Cernak would be BUFs best D if not for Dahlin of course. And you're acting like every hit leads to a players' career immediately ending. I'm the first to want to protect players from dangerous player and as I said, Cernak rightfully got punished, but you act like he shot him in the face, dude.


11.) 24 Dec 2019 08:16:38
Also, wtf are you even talking about?! Dahlin has been back in action for almost two weeks now. He barely missed to weeks of play. Your stupidity is truly next level.


12.) 24 Dec 2019 10:39:12
What did I just read? Tampa had a 128 points LAST year. They are not even in the playoffs this year if I’m not mistaken. And nowhere did I say every hit leads to a career ending. I said it could be the start of something. Nice of you to exaggerate and blow things up. Czernak would definitely not be the second best defenseman on Buffalo. And good for Dahlin making a quick comeback. Was that his decision or the doctors? Only time will tell just how smart it was. One concussion almost always leads to another. I wouldn’t be surprised if he has to sit out again this year as a result. Man are you ever stupid and ignorant. But as soon as one of your favourite players gets hit by a cheap shot deliberate intent to injure you’ll be the first one to cry.


13.) 24 Dec 2019 10:42:06
Cernak has five points, is -3, and averages less than 20 minutes a game. Saying he would be the second best defenseman in Buffalo is the dumbest thing I’ve read in a long time. Your stupidity is astounding. Truly the next level.


14.) 24 Dec 2019 17:10:42
Hockeyfan if you don't like the sport of hockey, why not take up watching a different sport like figure skating rather than complain about it and run your hole?


15.) 25 Dec 2019 04:16:00
I like the game of hockey. What I don’t like are dirty cheap shots on the star players by guys that are much less talented and getting away this crap while the games best players are getting hurt. This is actually a protest against the instigator rule. If you read it correctly you would have realized that. You know why Gretzky never got seriously injured? Because of guys like McSorley, Somenko, and McLelland. If we had guys to protect our stars today we wouldn’t have cheap shots like what you see these punk kids do taking runs at exposed players from the blind side and hitting them with their elbows in a deliberate attempt to injure. Simple as that. Get rid of the instigator penalty and guess what? The players referee themselves.


16.) 25 Dec 2019 05:15:13
My first thought was this post is awfully late. Then I read that Cernak was a low level player and figured it was someone who just doesn’t watch Tampa at all. Then when they said Tampa was a bad team I knew they had no idea what they were talking about. Tampa’s struggles this year are in their head, coaching, and goaltending. They have mental breakdowns and the coach has tried changing their game way too much. Vasi has been straight awful.

I can’t think of a D man on Buffalo outside of Dahlin I’d take over Cernak, he’s a hell of a lot better than you give him credit for. He played top 4 for them last hear when they got 128 points, but you know he’s bad because Tampa’s struggled this year. Wasn’t a good play, I think intent to heard is overstated it was going to be chest he mistimed got a bit higher, deserved 3-5 in my opinion not surprised by 2 for first offence. got to calm down man you’re going to have a heart attack.


17.) 25 Dec 2019 08:44:57
Thanks jbs for saving me the time and perfectly summarizing what I woulda wrote.


18.) 25 Dec 2019 14:24:35
Tampa is tied for 22nd in the league. The only teams in the division doing worse are Ottawa and Detroit. They are not a good team this year. So if they are not a good team, that means they are a bad team. Hyping them because of last year’s results is old news. Cernak is not a better player than half of Buffalo’s defensemen. He’s a second line defenseman on a bad team this year. And there is no denying that.


19.) 26 Dec 2019 06:56:49
Tampa is definitely not a bad team. Lol was St. Louis also bad last year? They definitely started bad but they were pegged as at least a playoff team at the start of the season like Tampa.

Anyway, the instigator rule IMO probably doesn’t stop guys from fighting that much. I’m not a fan of the less fighting and less sticking up for your teammates but a 2 minute penalty probably isn’t the reason. Not sure why someone wouldn’t have took matters into there own hands in that incident. I guess there more worried about suspensions like the one Lucic got. The reason there’s less fighting I think is because teams value skill way more then toughness and there’s not a lot of fighters left. Also half the times refs won’t even let guys fight.


20.) 27 Dec 2019 12:36:05
You saying TB is 22nd in the league just shows your stupidity. TB (along with NYI) have played the fewest games of all teams. Going by points percentage, TB is 15th in the league and therefore a playoff team. Not to mention we're not even halfway through the year. And yet, you've still failed to mention a single BUF D (besides Dahlin) that's better than Cernak. No one agrees with you. Just get off.


21.) 27 Dec 2019 20:47:18
If you want to actually dig into things Tampa is top 5 or 10 in both expected goals for and against. They are a top team at both ends of the ice whose struggles have really come down to goaltending and bad change of game plan to start the year. If Vasi is even average this team is firmly in a playoff spot and all of a sudden a “good” team by your metrics.

Dallas can trade HEISKENAN (got it right this time. Stupid spellcheck) for Kakko. Rangers need a star defenceman before they need a star forward.

HockeyFanatic

1.) 16 Nov 2019 02:44:48
Stars say No, they need Heiskanen more than Kakko.


2.) 16 Nov 2019 02:53:52
Dallas can do it but why? Kakko is looking like he could be a superstar forward but Heiskanen is already a superstar defensemen and I think he has the potential to become one of the best finish defensemen ever.


3.) 16 Nov 2019 06:29:24
You didn't lol. Heiskanen it is.


4.) 20 Nov 2019 00:47:19
wtf? I’m just going to copy and paste his name from now on.


5.) 20 Nov 2019 00:51:12
I don’t think Heiskanen is superstar yet. He will be one day very soon, but right now he’s not. Dallas needs forwards more than defense. They just drafted Harley who could be just as good as Heiskanen.

They couldn’t have traded for Kovalchuk earlier. He was still under contract with LA at 6.25. They had to wait until the contract was terminated to sign him for league minimum.

Both Howard and Crawford are doing brutal. Didn’t Crawford go down to the AHL? Leafs want an upgrade in net. Hard to believe but they got better than this already.

Caulfield is going to be a star. He is the right age bracket to be peaking in his prime when Montreal’s new core is ready to compete. Wicked fight by KK the other night. I didn’t know he had it in him. I just wish Mo freak would use him better. Seems like a waste on third line.

LA can get far better. It’s been said repeatedly. They should get similar to what they got for Muzzin.
