To Calgary : Phil Kessel ( 50% Retained Salary )

To Arizona : (2022) Second-Round Selection, Walker Duehr and Erik Gudbranson

Kessel brings in good leadership and playoff experience. Arizona acquires more future pieces to contribute to their rebuild. Gudbranson is just for cap reasons, he’s currently signed to a 1 year deal @ 1.95 AAV.

1.) 12 Oct 2021 15:43:02
To be honest I have never heard the words Kessel and good leadership in the same sentence.

2.) 12 Oct 2021 18:09:03
No thanks on Kessel. I'd rather keep Walker Duehr, he showed well in camp and as a right shot RW with good size who plays a physical game he's virtually certain to get called up soon.

3.) 14 Oct 2021 14:32:30
This is awful for the Flames.

4.) 15 Oct 2021 17:24:02
First time ever agreeing with balsam.

I don’t think too much about the Tkachuk situation in Ottawa but if there was a chance that they were willing to trade him, would this offer be enough?

To Calgary : Brady Tkachuk

To Ottawa : (2022) First-Round Selection, Connor Zary, Juuso Valimaki, Ryan Francis and Milan Lucic

This is how I value Brady. He throws hits, gets under people’s skin, can score points but is horrible defensively and racks up way too many penalty minutes.

Gaudreau - Monahan - Lindholm
B Tkachuk - Backlund - M Tkachuk
Mangiapane - Dube - Coleman
Duehr - Pitlick - Lewis

Hanifin - Tanev
Kylington - Andersson
Zadorov - Mackey / Gudbranson

Stutzle - Norris - Batherson
Formenton - Pinto - Brown
Sanford - Tierney - Paul
Lucic - Ennis - Watson

Chabot - Zub
Valimaki - Zaitsev
Del Zotto - Holden / Mete.

1.) 11 Oct 2021 17:25:31
I can't see Brady getting traded at least not now while the team still has control. But Melnyk is so cheap there's a good chance they might trade him when he's getting close to UFA.

If he was being traded, that offer is pretty good but another team might pay even more. St Louis in particular.

2.) 11 Oct 2021 17:36:58
On second thought with Lucic in there it's not as good an offer as I initially thought. It'd take something more like:

Gaudreau + Zary + Valimaki


Monahan + Pelletier + Valimaki

Adding Lucic would likely cost a 1st round pick or around $2 mil retention and a 2nd.

3.) 11 Oct 2021 21:41:45
Brady isn’t getting traded and certainly not for two busts and a 1st.

4.) 12 Oct 2021 03:50:11
@Hockey_Dad Are you in the right thread? Nobody in this thread offered 2 busts and a first for Brady.

3 Way Trade

To Calgary :
C - Jack Eichel ( 10.00 @ 5 UFA )

To Buffalo :
(2022) First-Round Selection (CGY)
(2022) First-Round Selection (ANA)
D - Yan Kuznetsov
C - Sam Steel
LW - Milan Lucic (5.25 @ 2 UFA )

To Anaheim :
C - Sean Monahan ( 6.37 @ 2 UFA )

To Boston :
LW - Milan Lucic (50% Retained Salary) (2.62 @ 2 UFA)

To Buffalo :
(2023) Second-Round Selection (BOS)

1.) 08 Oct 2021 09:25:13
Omg so Anaheim giVes Shane Write and Sam Steel for 2c. No way that 1st is traded.

2.) 08 Oct 2021 11:34:41
I thought they’d be a little better this year. Could always switch to a 2023 first.

3.) 09 Oct 2021 03:19:59
As much as I love the Looch, I think a second rounder is a little heavy at this point in his career.

4.) 09 Oct 2021 03:27:24
Calgary would either have to give another piece to Anaheim or replace one of their pieces to Buffalo. Zary to buf instead of steel for example.

5.) 09 Oct 2021 03:27:53
Monahan isn’t getting close to that return. Max a late first at the deadline.

6.) 09 Oct 2021 06:06:35
At the deadline Monahan will be worth -more- than that. He'll be back to normal again this year post surgery.

Eichel isn't worth anywhere near this.

7.) 11 Oct 2021 13:37:59
@hockeydad you’re delusional boomer.

8.) 12 Oct 2021 03:02:26
Reinhart just got traded for a late first, although it was a bit of a steal a Monahan trade would be similar IMO.

9.) 12 Oct 2021 04:00:54
@Ebsolutely Reinhart wasn't a bit of a steal, that was highway robbery. I still can't believe Treliving couldn't work something out for substantially more than a goalie prospect and a late first round pick for him!

Heck Dustin Wolf and the Flames much earlier first (13th vs 24th) would have been better and that would have been a steal too.

10.) 12 Oct 2021 18:26:50
Lol okay fair enough but I mean that’s what he was traded for. So hard to say how much more Monahan would get.

1.) 03 Oct 2021 07:45:36
Way, way too much for overrated and injured Eichel.

2.) 04 Oct 2021 00:15:09
So. as I read it, Boston gets Monahan for DeBrusk and a first? Thanks, but no. I'll keep Debrusk.

3.) 04 Oct 2021 18:24:42
I agree with Seabass. I personally think Debrusk is going to rebound and become a very important player for the Bruins, which for me, sucks, as he will probably cause Havoc to Montreal for years to come.

If possible, Edmonton should really try and get Debrusk.

4.) 04 Oct 2021 19:30:09
Debrusk and Monahan will both probably rebound. Monahan is worth quite a bit more than Debrusk, especially to a team that already has more good left shot left wingers than they need.

Tkachuk, Gaudreau and Mangy would all be top 6 on most teams. Dube would be too on some teams and he's still getting better. Then there's Pelletier who'd probably be on the big team too if Calgary wasn't already stacked at LW.

Trading Monahan for yet another LW would be a huge mistake especially since Monahan himself is a left shooting goal scorer with a play style that's probably better suited to LW than Center. Unless of course the LW is being flipped elsewhere for a player the Flames actually need.

How embarrassing, Flames don’t know how to score goals so they have to goon it up. Smh, Andersson deserved a suspension 100%, also Kassian deserved atleast a fine for his hit from behind on Monahan.

1.) 20 Oct 2021 05:53:44
Least your not a Habs fan. Detroits Bertuzzi scored more goals in 1 game than Habs have in 4. now that's embarrassing .

2.) 20 Oct 2021 13:17:49
Yikes I mean, Calgary put up 60+ shots in 2 games and only came out with 2 goals and allowed 8… Markstrom is letting in muffins, our goal scorers shoot for the chest, and they sit on one goal leads. Calgary has such relentless pressure but gets rattled easily.

3.) 22 Oct 2021 19:37:59
Sosa your team went to the finals. If the leafs could do that, I’d be happy for years to come. A cup would be nice obviously, but winning a round or 2 would be a nice start. The playoffs are going to be tough to make, let alone winning a round.

4.) 22 Oct 2021 21:55:30
Thats the difference between a Habs fan and a Leafs fan Toronto17 . Hopefully one day, when Mathews isn't there you'll get to understand what I mean lol. I do remember that great feeling from 93 and 86 when my team won. thank God for Patrick Roy.

5.) 23 Oct 2021 00:12:34
You really don’t like him, lol. I hope he goes to the habs next. Yes, I don’t have many good memories.

6.) 23 Oct 2021 15:07:16
Lol Toronto17. I don't want him on Habs. ever . well maybe I'd change my tune haha.

7.) 23 Oct 2021 18:33:23
It’s funny how that works. There’s many guys in the league I don’t like, but would love them If they were on the leafs.

8.) 23 Oct 2021 22:02:24
Lol, yup, I also can't stand Ovechkin, ( however compared to Mathews, You'd like the guy) but if had Chariots #8 jersey on, i'm sure I woulda learned to like it. 🤣.



14 Oct 2021 13:15:34
On the latest episode of the Chris Johnston show, CJ says the #Flames continue to “keep tabs on things” in regards to Jack Eichel.
@moxnix thoughts?

1.) 14 Oct 2021 18:54:34
I don’t think the Flames have anything Buffalo would want. Unless they’d include Tkachuk, Andersson or Hanifin? Along with Zary, a conditional 2023 1st/ 2nd and a 2022 2nd.

2.) 16 Oct 2021 06:48:23
Agree with Ebs here no way they want any older player.



04 Sep 2021 22:15:42
Do y’all think Montreal is going to use those picks to acquire Dvorak maybe?

1.) 04 Sep 2021 22:39:43
Holy S*** lmaooo 1st and 3rd for Dvorak confirmed, bruh. Honestly had no idea, was just going off of what I heard on Twitter a few days ago. Which was that Habs we’re interested in Dvorak.

2.) 05 Sep 2021 13:52:56
My bad I meant 1ST and 2ND.



29 Aug 2021 00:13:20
Montreal shouldn’t match Kotkaniemi’s offer sheet. They don’t have the cap for it and the 1ST, 3RD could be valuable in this strong draft.

1.) 29 Aug 2021 04:36:59
I definitely would not match. and I like KK…take the picks.

2.) 29 Aug 2021 05:16:17
If he signed an offer sheet for one year, he must really want out of Montreal. They might as well just take the picks and let him go. It hurts the center depth though.

3.) 29 Aug 2021 15:01:00
Bye KK. I honestly wouldn't want him back. IMO, the $20 signing bonus was an F. U to Bergevin.
Sure. sign the deal , but that signing bonus was disrespectful.

4.) 30 Aug 2021 15:37:05
Memarcus I mean why wouldn’t he accept it? He’d be getting paid way more than arbitration would give him.

5.) 30 Aug 2021 17:12:58
Casual, just because it is only one year. Sure he gets 6.1 for a year, but if he wanted to stay in Montreal, he would probably end up with more money on a longer term contract.

I think he likely signed the OS with the understanding that this is what they are using to pry him out of Montreal and then they'll work on a fair long term deal that will depend on how he does this year. They couldn't go the Bergevin route and offer a deal that is a no-brainer to match. They had to offer a contract that makes Montreal think as it hurts Montreal both short and long term no matter what.

If he goes on a 1 year deal and stinks (with no indication that thecanes want him long term), he probably costs himself a lot more than 6 mil on a long term deal. The safer bet for him financially with a flat cap is a longer term deal. Less dollars per year, but more dollars overall.

A one year term to me just looks like, get me out of here and then we'll talk about a real long term deal for a fair cost.

@vbb I see what you mean but he can easily be flipped at good value.
