I have a weird feeling that Brad Treliving is going to sign Marcus Sorensen and Adam Larsson this summer. Idk why, just a weird feeling. If he does then remember I said it haha

1.) 19 Apr 2021 16:16:48
I don’t know if he will or not. Depending on price, Larsson would be a nice pickup for any team. I like the way he plays, unfortunately they traded Taylor Hall for him and that’s a tough thing for the guy to live up to. He shouldn’t have been a 4th overall pick and he shouldn’t have been traded straight up for a 70-80pt 24 year old forward. None of that’s his fault.

If you can get him to be your #4-5, it’s a solid add to almost any team.

2.) 20 Apr 2021 07:53:07
I agree sampson

3.) 20 Apr 2021 12:39:12
Larsson replaces Hamonic.

4.) 20 Apr 2021 23:41:25
Yeah there’s lots of those guys out there which is why I said depending on price. Like zach bogosian at $5.3M or whatever he was making in WPG and BUF was bad value.
Same player, now with Stanley Cup experience playing a bottom pair role is valuable for $2M-2.25M. Leafs have him for $1M. I imagine he will get some offers with a raise in the off-season.

5.) 22 Apr 2021 21:20:37
So the free agent signing was Calgary signing Larson and somehow Larson would be a replacement for Hamonic, who plays for the Canucks.
Pretty hilarious that this is the same guy who questioned another commenter hockey knowledge.



15 Apr 2021 10:29:46
Not saying I’d do this trade but would Buffalo accept it?

To Calgary : Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart

To Buffalo : Dillon Dube, Jakob Pelletier, Connor Zary, Dustin Wolf, Mikael Backlund and (2021) First

Dube, Pelletier, Zary, Wolf = Eichel
Backlund, 1st = Reinhart

Obviously they would need to find cap space some how but is this even good value?

J Gaudreau - J Eichel - E Lindholm
M Tkachuk - S Monahan - S Reinhart

V Olofsson - D Cozens - D Dube
J Pelletier - C Zary - J Quinn

1.) 15 Apr 2021 11:06:15
Both teams say no to that one.

2.) 15 Apr 2021 11:13:46
Buffalo would definitely pass. Not really much value in terms of prospects - all late picks who haven’t exploded or added much value to their stock.
I think NYR can and will make the best offer for Eichel.

3.) 15 Apr 2021 14:24:29
It looks like a lot of pieces but when you break it down into what covers Eichel, and what covers Reinhart, it looks woefully weak.

Buffalo took a “quantity” package for O’Reilly that included 2 veteran players, a young top prospect and 1st and a 2nd and still lost the trade in a land slide. I don’t see them doing similar or less for Eichel who is younger, signed longer and a far higher ceiling.

4.) 15 Apr 2021 16:06:50
Calgary adds Gaudreau.

5.) 15 Apr 2021 16:11:17
So Buffalo gives an all time top 100 player of all time for 2 mediocre prospects, a good 4th liner that can play 3rd and a AHL starter?

How could they possibly pass?

6.) 15 Apr 2021 19:51:04
Why would a rebuilding team want an expiring UFA that won’t resign. You should think before you post @JoshAnderson.

7.) 15 Apr 2021 20:48:57
Nylander, it wasn’t an actual proposal it was just joke to basically say the value was that off that Gaudreau would need to be added. A full year of Gaudreau still holds a good amount of value.

8.) 15 Apr 2021 21:11:34
Umm how is Eichel a 100 top player of all time? He may get there, but sure isn't there yet VB.

I wouldn't do this if I were Sabres.

Id look at LA, have a deal in place to bring Byfield to Buffalo.
In order to get Eichel, your going to need to bring in an A+ prospect .

9.) 15 Apr 2021 23:07:42
If I’m Buffalo, one of Tkachuk or Lindholm would have to be going the other way tbh. Probably Tkachuk+like Zary for Eichel would be close.

Then again Buffalos a tire fire so they probably won’t even make a good Eichel trade, haha. But i agree with the others on the general premise, if Eichels being traded, its for an A+ prospect, A+ rookie or young elite player like Tkachuk.

10.) 15 Apr 2021 23:57:15
You like to criticize people for expressing an opinion on trade value then state Eichel is a top 100 of all time lol. You are to much.

11.) 16 Apr 2021 00:56:47
Sosa - that’s exactly the type of thing you do. My opinion on trading really good to great players for a package is: atleast one of the pieces coming back has to have the chance of replacing the piece leaving.

So if I’m trading a 2nd line winger, I would want a prospect with Atleast that potential and a mid to late first. Chances are I can find a future top 6 F with that

If I’m trading a 24 year old, franchise type Centerman, there better be a top 5 pick and atleast one A or A+ prospect coming my way. Anything less, I don’t feel comfortable finding a player like Eichel or a combination of 2 that make up for it.

12.) 17 Apr 2021 04:02:37
Calgary would be better off passing on Eichel and just trading for Reinhart. They're fine at center now and need a top 6 right shot RW.

Eichel hasn't lived up to the hype around him.

He's been injured often, missing 21 and 15 games in 2 different years with ankle sprains. Now this year he played just 21 games and is out for the rest of the year with a neck injury that requires surgery.

He's a couple good years and a few soso years and this year a bad one with just 2 goals in 21 games.

Every high scoring forward they've brought in to play with him has been terrible with him. Hall, Skinner, etc. Hall is looking pretty good in Boston now though, same goes for O'Reilly who left a few years earlier.

It's starting to look like the problem in Buffalo may *BE* Eichel. Weak ankles, a bad neck, a complainer with a me first attitude and a huge long term contract. He doesn't make the players around him better, in fact he seems to make them worse!

No thanks!

Reinhart on the other hand is one of the few players in Buffalo who's been producing this year in spite of everything. Players like that are the ones you want.



09 Apr 2021 06:11:31
To CGY :
(2021) First-Round Pick
Timothy Liljegren
Frederik Andersen
Alex Kerfoot

To TOR :
Mikael Backlund
David Rittich (50% Salary Retained)
Sam Bennett (50% Retained Salary)

Toronto saves 500K in cap space, if they found a way to dump Engvall, they could possibly make another move after this. Thoughts?

Zach Hyman - Auston Matthews - Mitch Marner
Joe Thornton - John Tavares - William Nylander
Alex Galchenyuk - Mikael Backlund - Sam Bennett
Ilya Mikheyev - Jason Spezza - Wayne Simmonds

Morgan Rielly - Tj Brodie
Jake Muzzin - Justin Holl
Travis Dermott - Zach Bogosian

Jack Campbell
David Rittich

Toronto receives a solid Two-way Center and a physical Grinder who thrives in the playoffs, Rittich would make a solid backup. Rittich is one of my favourites, he’s been solid but doesn’t get the credit.

1.) 09 Apr 2021 07:37:32
A mid round pick might get you Rittich. The Flames might even take Anderson off your hands too if the Leafs retain the difference between Rittich's and Anderson's salary (2.25 mil over a full year) .

Besides that Anderson has negative value, we don't want Kerfoot and would prefer to keep Bennett than trade him anyhow. Liljegren is a left shot LW (one thing the Flames really don't need) who at 26 years old is still playing in Sweden and not exactly tearing it up there.

The first is nice but that's about it.

We'll just keep Backlund and Bennett.

2.) 09 Apr 2021 08:14:22
lol, Calgary is now going to eat 50% on two players and take a goalie who needs a new contract. what are you smoking?

3.) 09 Apr 2021 08:20:50
SO you think Calgary is going to retain 50% on their goalie and take your crippled goal at full contract. lmao. Toronto fans are so naive.

If Toronto makes trades, they will overpay just to lose in the first round again.

4.) 09 Apr 2021 12:44:47
@petz Bennett is an RFA and Rittich is a UFA. Flames aren’t making the playoffs either which is why they’d have no problem retaining on 2 expiring contracts, and I’m a flames fan. Why do you have to come out all toxic against the leafs?

5.) 09 Apr 2021 12:46:00
The Retained salary was for 2 expiring contracts, and Andersen was taken back for salary reasons to balance out the cap considering he’s a ufa aswell. Use your brain buddy.



09 Apr 2021 05:56:45
To Toronto : Andrew Mangiapane, Sam Bennett and (2021) Second-Round Pick

To Calgary : William Nylander

Toronto saves 1.98m in cap space

J Gaudreau - E Lindholm - W Nylander
M Tkachuk - M Backlund - S Monahan

A Mangiapane - A Matthews - M Marner
Z Hyman - J Tavares - N Robertson.

1.) 09 Apr 2021 07:58:14
Eek! Gaudreau and Nylander together, that sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Nylander is soft and lazy, the Flames need less of that, not more.

2.) 09 Apr 2021 11:43:04
If Nylander is soft and lazy what is Monahan and Guadreau.

3.) 09 Apr 2021 12:47:20
@nylander Gaudreau is soft but not lazy, meanwhile Monahan is both lmao.

4.) 09 Apr 2021 16:22:53
@nylander It doesn't matter what Gaudreau and Monahan are, the point is the Flames are too soft now, more soft players they don't need.

5.) 09 Apr 2021 16:27:17
Besides this trade has the Flames giving up two of the hardest working players on the team. Mangy and Benny are neither soft nor lazy. If this trade happened there'd be lynch parties forming in Calgary for Treliving.



08 Apr 2021 03:27:10
To PHI : Johnny Gaudreau
To CGY : (2021) First-Round Pick, Philippe Myers and Nolan Patrick

To CAR : Sean Monahan
To CGY : Seth Jarvis and Jake Bean
(Carolina would have to find a way to shed cap, maybe add in Gardiner? I heard he's been on the taxi squad quite a lot this year.)

M Tkachuk - M Backlund - E Lindholm
A Mangiapane - N Patrick - D Dube
S Bennett - G Gawdin - J Leivo
M Lucic - D Ryan - B Ritchie

M Giordano - R Andersson
N Hanifin - C Tanev
J Valimaki - P Myers

I think Ryan, Nesterov, Leivo and Bennett get moved. Giordano should be going to @ 50% retained salary, they need to go all in retool right now before Markstrom, Tanev and Backlund start to regress.

1.) 08 Apr 2021 15:55:41
Johnny trade might be a good starting point. Monny trade isn't, the Flames won't be trading Monny unless they get a far better offer than that.

I think Bennett stays, the rest sounds about right.

2.) 08 Apr 2021 16:25:50
Huge no from both teams Calargry won’t get more then 1st and b prospect for Guadreau and a 1st and cap dump like JT Compher for Monahan.

3.) 08 Apr 2021 16:28:02
Nobody wants Nolan Patrick. He is one concussion away from never playing again.

4.) 08 Apr 2021 17:23:19
I think Calgary should just add a bit to get Konechny for Gaudreau. Myers and the 1st is nice but Nolan Patrick’s a project, while Konechny is a young star.
Bean is an awesome prospect and would be sweet to get for Monahan.
@Nylander you have a lot of dumb takes man. You said Eichel is better than Matthews lol. Gaudreau is still a top 25 talent and while he is expiring soon he still has more year, which adds value. He can get at least an A-/ B+ And B- prospect and a first and maybe a vet.

5.) 08 Apr 2021 18:23:38
I like both, honestly. Myers is a nice top4 dman, Patrick is a lottery ticket who could pay off, never a bad idea to take a shot on a 2nd overall pick from a couple years ago, give him some good training/ rehab and he could bounce back, if he doesn't, oh well, cause he's the third most important piece in the deal. I think that's pretty good value for Johnny, my only issue is the Flyers issues are much like the Leafs of past, the defense/ goaltending stinks, so are they willing to give up one of their only good dmen for a forward? Time will tell, but values good.

The Monahan one is very intriguing. Bean is a nice pickup, probably a 5-6 dman but could be something more, but I'm a huge fan of Seth Jarvis, I really think he'll be a wicked player in the NHL in the future. I think maybe add in a pending UFA guy like Nesterov or Derek Ryan @50% or so, but again, I think the values pretty close.

6.) 08 Apr 2021 19:55:06
A lot of dumb takes? Look at what other players like stone and Karlsson got. Guadreau is worse then them both at the time.

I said I wouldn’t trade Marner for Karlsson when he was on Ottawa and look at that now. I’ll promise you everything I say is true IMO Eichel is better then Mathews. He’s certainly better then anyone in flames history. ( Gilmore/ Iginla )

7.) 08 Apr 2021 21:04:59
Nylander. Matthews is much better than Eichel. Eichel is top 15 when healthy, Matthews is top 5. Stone got a great prospect (Brannstrom > Lilijgren), a 2nd and a vet while being a UFA. Gaudreau isn’t a UFA so is obv more.

8.) 08 Apr 2021 22:42:03
@Nylander Gilmore. I guess you never heard of a guy named Joe Nieuwendyk. Gilmore was the 2nd line center behind him.

Did anybody watch the Rittich Leafs interview, he was trying so hard to not break down. so heartbreaking man.

1.) 15 Apr 2021 16:21:05
Boo hoo i play in NHL and make 3 million a year boo hoo

He’s in the NHL and is a UFA playing on a top 5 team. Do you feel bad for every RCMP officer who transfers stations?

2.) 15 Apr 2021 20:26:56
I don’t feel bad for either.

3.) 15 Apr 2021 20:51:04
So much hate coming off of Nylander, I wonder if mama took away his lunch money.

4.) 15 Apr 2021 21:07:09
Everyone is allowed to have emotions. its what makes us human. Obviously some people show more than others. I remember many years ago when Kirk Muller was traded from Montreal, it was heartbreaking.
These guys aren't robots, they all have built friendships with not only their teammates, but also there communities.
I welcome emotion, shows that these millionaire athletes aren't any different than us regular people.

5.) 16 Apr 2021 01:12:34
The one of those that drove me nuts was Ryan Smyth bawling after he was traded from Edmonton. I was a huge Smyth Fan, and wanted him to stay but him and the team couldn’t get the deal done. I feel for the guy who bled for that team but at the end of the day if being an oiler and being in Edmonton meant so much to you, why is $500k a year on a 5yr $30M+ contract going to keep you from being an oiler? In that case, he made his own bed and I thought the tears were ridiculous. In saying that, when guys get traded, their lives change and I don’t mind them expressing that.

6.) 16 Apr 2021 11:41:31
100% @sosahabs24. @sampson the Ryan Smyth retirement was sad though, I really liked how much class the Canucks showed that day. @jandersonbpf most likely.

7.) 16 Apr 2021 11:51:48
@nylander if a RCMP officer had to transfer provinces I’d feel bad yeah. Them and their family would have to leave their friends/ family/ coworkers.



12 Apr 2021 20:35:30
I’m so mad we lost Bennett... one of my fav flames ever

1.) 13 Apr 2021 21:37:33
I like him as well. I really hope this guy can blossom in Florida.

2.) 14 Apr 2021 07:50:46
Me too, hopefully he turns into a legit Top 6 F. It’s not impossible of course but probably highly unlikely. I guess Florida never forgot his 4 goal game against them a couple years ago haha.

3.) 14 Apr 2021 08:32:33
Even if he doesn't become a top 6 guy, which i believe he still can be, he brings an edge to his game, and that sandpaper type of play that championship teams need.
His biggest downfall was being picked 4th overall. obviously he didn't warrant that selection, however, if he would have been a 3rd or 4th rounder, people would be saying what a good scrappy guy this is.

4.) 14 Apr 2021 14:09:18
I agree Sosa. I always liked Sam. He Grew up next to a friend of mine, really nice kid and I always rooted for him. I wanted Leafs to bring him in as a longer term fit but I think for this year alone, Foligno was the better choice.

And ya, he shouldn’t have been 4th overall but that shouldn’t haunt the guy forever. He’s a legit top 9 NHL player that brings a lot of what you need to win, like you said. Any team that got him, and doesn’t have the bad taste in their mouth of spending a top 5 pick on him, will love this guy.

5.) 16 Apr 2021 11:44:05
@sampson the flames didn’t develop him properly and rushed him. Then coaches buried him on the 3rd line even after showing huge chemistry with Tkachuk. We seen flashes outta him, but the flames burying him on the 3rd/ 4th line didn’t help at all.



12 Apr 2021 03:49:42
Gonna miss Ritter. : ( Brodie and Rittich are reunited once again, such an awesome goalie. Huge personality, always puts his team first and is not afraid to protect his teammates. Absolute stud, the Leafs need to bring that cup home.



02 Apr 2021 02:15:33
Nylander (50% retained) to Calgary for 1st, 2nd, Bennett and Kylington

See how dumb that sounds.

1.) 03 Apr 2021 19:54:47
Yeah You do look pretty dumb this would put the leafs way over the cap unlike other trades where a player is retained because the leafs are the tightest team against the cap in nhl history and they literally can’t make a trade unless they take back less salary which is not feasible without moving Kerfoot/ Mikeyhev, a important dman or a star.

Also if you’re comparing Kylington to Amirov/ Lilijgren/ Robertson/ Sandin just stop there because you’re making yourself look silly. Trade that to the blues for Hoffman.



30 Mar 2021 04:33:50
I’m sorry Memarcusjoe and Islandjet you’ll probably take offence. But this game has the worst officiating I’ve ever seen. Flames are playing really bad but the biased reffing in favour of Winnipeg isn’t helping at all. The boarding against Tanev ended up being a penalty against Calgary. the intentional kick in goal, weakest goals against Calgary and not calling penalties in favour of Calgary.

1.) 30 Mar 2021 13:37:29
Eh, they all even out over time. Lucic should have had a 5 minute boarding penalty 2 games before, Tkachuk should constantly be in the penalty box for diving or cheap shoting. The refs are inconsistent no doubt, but they are pretty evenly inconsistent. Other than name players always getting calls in their favour.

2.) 30 Mar 2021 13:39:40
The weak goals had nothing to do with reffing obviously, just included in my rant. The refs have been dog sh** this year.

3.) 30 Mar 2021 14:45:32
I hear ya'. It can be pretty hard sometimes when you see obvious, blatant misses that cost your team, but it happens to everyone, if that helps. Don't stress about it though, it's not good for your blood pressure! 😜.

4.) 30 Mar 2021 20:45:02
Although the kick in goal was called correctly. Thompson's leg was already fully extended when the puck hit it, so he couldn't possibly have kicked it in. He just directed it in, which is legal.

5.) 30 Mar 2021 21:59:18
Yea I guess so. I hate the flames.

6.) 30 Mar 2021 23:31:51
Tim peel is gone so that alone will improve the overall officiating.

I agree with Nylander and even if they did hold value to the Sabres, there still isn’t enough quality going to Buffalo.

Why not just resign Barrie? He’s been solid, can pay Seattle to take Neal aswell. 2 years left after this season @ 5.75, it would easily be a contract they’d be willing to take with compensation.
Resign Barrie 6 x 4
Convince Seattle to take Neal with a 1ST, and maybe Benson or Lavoie
