Colt hit a home run, Brown for Sanford and a pick announced today.


1.) 25 Sep 2021 22:49:39
Colt had the pick going the wrong way. He wanted Sanford and a 3rd for Brown. The actual trade that went down is Brown and a conditional pick for Sanford.

2.) 25 Sep 2021 23:25:44
It actually gets the ottawa senators to the cap floor. And Blues lose 1.3 in cap. Withe other moves blues are now .735 mil under cap.

3.) 26 Sep 2021 08:49:35
I just came here to say that wow.

4.) 28 Sep 2021 09:29:27
MoNix. it was Sanford and a conditional 4th rounder for Brown. If Brown suits up for less than thirty games, Sens get a 4th rounder.

5.) 28 Sep 2021 13:46:28
Seabass that's not what I'm seeing reported. It says the 4th goes to the Blues but if Brown plays more than 30 games the pick is removed from the deal.

6.) 28 Sep 2021 18:24:07
Army is ruthless and save blues 1.4 mil boom.

Wild day:

Ryan Ellis for Myers and Patrick.

Patrick then shipped for Glass.

McCann for Hallander.

Dickinson for a 3rd to VAN

Goodrow for a 6.




26 Jun 2021 20:11:20
Just a couple of ideas regarding three likely trade candidates that people aren't talking too much about:

Trade 1:

Edmonton Trades:
- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (UFA: Sign and Trade; 7M x 6 years)
- Phillip Broberg
- 2022 2nd Round Draft Pick

Columbus Trades:
- Patrik Laine (RFA: Sign and Trade: 6M x 4 years)
- Scott Harrington

RNH doesn't hold much value as a UFA, but would be a nice fit as the first line center in Columbus, so they acquire his early negotiation rights and get him as a sign and trade. Laine for Broberg and a pick is probably close; Laine is at an all time low and probably doesn't fit with Columbus for the next few years, Broberg would be a nice replacement for Jones next to Werenski in the next few years and a 2nd round pick is always a nice get. For Edmonton, they take a chance on one of the best shooters in the league who's fallen far from his original value. Honestly, putting Laine next to McDavid for at least the next four years may be the most lethal combination in the league (top10 shot in the league next to the best player/ passer in the league)

Trade 2:

Vegas Trades:
- Reilly Smith
- Cody Glass
- Nick Holden
- 2021 1st Round Draft Pick

Washington Trades:
- Evgeny Kuznetsov
- Daniel Sprong
- 2021 3rd Round Draft Pick

Another trade of a player who's probably at his lowest value all-time in Kuznetsov. Although a very good player, lots of rumors from Washington have painted him as a guy who doesn't buy into the teams systems and is lazy - essentially, the scapegoat for the team after losing in round 1 again. Vegas could use a true 1st line center (Stephenson is a better 3C), and bringing in a disgruntled Kuznetsov for a lower cost than normal may be well worth it. Reilly Smith had a very middling playoffs, and is essentially a salary cap filler (only 25 points in the RS too, not great) ; Holden's a complete cap dump, so Glass and a 1st essentially for Kuznetsov and a 3rd. Glass is a reclamation project and could be nice behind Backstrom and Eller in Washington, and moving up 2 rounds to make up for the Mantha pick is worth it imo.

Trade 3:

Arizona Trades:
Oliver Ekman-Larsson

Boston Trades:
Ondrej Kase
Jake DeBrusk
2021 1st Round Draft Pick
2022 3rd Round Draft Pick

OEL is a shell of his former self, but he's still a pretty reliable #2-3 dman in the league, and would fit well on a pairing with Brandon Carlo. Boston has a ton of cap-space, and DeBrusk hasn't performed well at all in the last two years. Kase has been injured, and would likely be exposed to Seattle, so he gets added too as a reclamation project for Arizona. They also pick up a 1st rounder - a pick which they had to forfeit this year because of the scouting scandals and whatnot. For an 8mill dman who's slightly past his prime, without any retention, I think this price is about right - it looks low, but I don't know that OEL goes for much more.

Been a while since I posted actual trades, am I rusty? Haha.


1.) 27 Jun 2021 02:52:13
Not enough for Laine. Nuge holds zero value he will sign there for free.

2.) 27 Jun 2021 06:52:03
I do think that's a little light for Laine.
Also, I beleive the OEL one is to much of a price for the Bruins to pay.

Edmonton should try and make a play for DeBrusk.

3.) 27 Jun 2021 17:14:35
Laine isn't going to sign for less than he makes now. Nuge probably doesn't get 7 mil/ year either.

No way Vegas does that trade with Washington. There's a huge cap disparity, Vegas can't afford a contract like Kuznetsov's unless there's a similar contract going the other way.

Nobody wants OEL. Not with that contract anyhow unless there's heavy retention by Arizona and if they're going to do that they might as well just keep him.

4.) 27 Jun 2021 17:36:33
Broberg and the 2nd is at least as valuable as the 8th pick you proposed for Laine, Nylander.

5.) 27 Jun 2021 19:32:15
I was kinda on the same boat with OEL not having much value, but I feel like GMs may still like him as a player because of his name quality tho, and a team like Boston makes a lot of sense because of how much cap they open up with Rask, Halak, Krejci and Hall gone. I think maybe knocking the 1st to a 2nd may be closer, cause its essentially Debrusk and the 2nd with Kase as a complete unknown variable added cause he makes like 2.5mill.

For the Vegas one, I think the cap matches. Smith makes nearly 6, Holden makes 1.7 and Kuznetsov makes 7.5 or so. With Martinez walking too, the cap aligns pretty well. It may be too high for a depreciating Kuznetsov, but then I could see Washington upping to a 2nd instead of a 3rd.

And yeah for Laine, probably a little bit more needs to be added to Broberg, I’m not too close with Edmonton prospects but I’m pretty sure Ryan McLeod is a B prospect, so adding him or potentially someone like Jesse (or another 2nd, maybe? ) should make it closer. A Laine trade probably doesn’t happen, but I do think Laine’s value is at an all time low and Edmonton shouod be all over that type of opportunity to pair him with one of their two centers.

6.) 27 Jun 2021 23:21:14
I didn't realize Reilly Smith makes 5 mil/ yr, he's a little more productive than I thought he was too. But he's also older than I thought (a year older than Kuznetsov) and UFA in a year.

Laine I don't see Jarmo trading Laine now after what he gave up to get him. IMO he's more likely to trade Bjorkstrand than Laine.

Unless Columbus decides to blow it all up and rebuild from scratch, which they might do if they can't resign Laine and Jones. Then they trade Jones, Laine, Werenski and maybe Bjorkstrand too. Or they might keep Bjorkstrand since he's signed until 2026.

7.) 28 Jun 2021 01:10:05
I think a team would rather have the 8th overall pick and pick their own prospect but that’s a fair point.

8.) 29 Jun 2021 17:57:10
Nuge will be staying in Edmonton. He just signed for 8 years at 5.125 mil/ yr with a NMC.



06 Jun 2021 23:19:14
My (Realistic) 2021/ 22 Leafs Blueprint:

- Based on Dubas'/ Shanahan's comments, it looks more and more likely that all of Matthews, Marner, Tavares and Nylander return. Whether that's the right decision is anyones guess - personally, I'd want to downsize and trade Marner away, opening up at least 7M in cap space (4M or so coming back in a deal), but Dubas/ Shanahan are likely banking their jobs on these four doing something next year, cause they both are likely canned if the team sells again.

So, based on this, here are some of my prediction moves:
- Leafs protect 7/ 3/ 1 in the expansion draft, exposing Justin Holl and Travis Dermott. Of the two, Dermott's cheaper but Holl's better (for now at least) and doesn't have arb rights, so I'd think Seattle takes Holl.
- Toronto only resigns Spezza (700k x 1 year), Galchenyuk (950k x 2 years) and Bogosian (1M x 1 year) .
- Toronto let's Hyman walk and he signs somewhere else (Detroit possibly to reunite with Larkin, or somewhere else with cap space) on a big time deal for 4-6 years. Toronto could probably throw like 4.5x5 at him and maybe entice him to come back, but I feel like after 5 years of failure + the chance to cash in big time somewhere else + the fact that Hyman's contract may turn into a Ladd/ Okposo type (paying a guy who relies heavily on his body into his mid 30s isn't always the best idea, no matter how great a player he is right now) may allow for both sides to move on.
- From free agency, Toronto signs:
Petr Mrazek: 3 million x 2 years.
Tomas Tatar: 2.5 million x 2 years.
Tyler Bozak: 900k x 1 year.
Brandon Saad: 4 million x 4 years.
Jamie Oleksiak: 2.5 million x 2 years.

- In terms of trades:
Toronto trades Ilya Mikheyev, a 2022 2nd Round Pick and a 2023 3rd Round Pick to New Jersey in exchange for Miles Wood.

Tatar (2.5) - Matthews (11) - Marner (11)
Galchenyuk (0.9) - Tavares (11) - Nylander (7)
Saad (4) - Kerfoot (3.5) - Robertson (0.9)
Wood (2.5) - Bozak (0.9) - Spezza (0.7)

Rielly (5) - Brodie (5)
Muzzin (5) - Oleksiak (2.5)
Sandin (0.9) - Bogosian (1)

Campbell (1.5)
Mrazek (3)

Total Salary (w/ o extras) : 79.8, which is enough for two league min extras like Brooks/ Malgin and Liljegren. Engvall gets waived and sent down, or can be sent to any team that really wants him - most of his salary is buriable anyway.

In terms of the new guys brought in, I know the Habs fans are going to rip me for thinking Tatar's going to work on that top line since he's a healthy scratch right now, lol, but I think if any team is going to give him a chance it'd be Toronto, since Dubas is probably going to abandon the 'physical, old man' mantra he took on for this year. I honestly don't think Tatar's going to get too much in FA even tho he had a decent year (counting stats at least), just bc he's being scratched and can't even get into the lineup with injuries to guys like Evans. I think 2.5x2 from any team seems about right, and I know he's probably not the hardest working guy, but his underlyings are good and maybe he could work.
- Saad is probably going to get less than Hyman and Coleman do this offseason, so I think Toronto snags him and fits him in on the third line like Colorado to have some depth throughout their lineup. Saad and Kerfoot provide versatility on that third line with Robertson, and it can be a slight scoring threat as well.
- Bozak prob would come back for cheap since he's been here before, Oleksiak would probably come here since he's from the city and would forever be loved for his physicality, and Mrazek got usurpsed by Ned, so a 2 year, 3 mill deal seems reasonable for a 1B guy.
- Miles Wood is a high energy young guy who can move up/ down the lineup and despite his counting stats being similar to Mikheyevs, he does a lot more. Mikheyevs an eh replacement, but the two pick price is worth it to upgrade.

Lol, it's probably not perfect, but I tried to keep it as realistic as possible. Does it seem realistic or nah?


1.) 07 Jun 2021 04:08:10
Good post. I definitely like Saad’s fit on the Leafs and think the most realistic outcome is the Leafs retaining all 4 of their moneymakers, despite what most people on this site think.

2.) 07 Jun 2021 05:21:10
Did you include Kessels 1.2 mil cap hit into this? Also those signings are a little light I feel. not all of these guys are Ontario born players in the twilight of their careers who want to play with the leafs before they retire. I think if Tatar goes that cheap for example Montreal resigns him.

3.) 07 Jun 2021 05:43:12
I HATE the Marzek deal. I think I’d rather role with Hutch as backup then pay him 3 million. I think he is awful. I’d pay Riemer and Bernier 3 million over him but I do like that post.

I would like to see Tavares and Marner moved for picks and prospects but that won’t happen.

4.) 07 Jun 2021 13:34:49
@Websjac I figure most don't think Toronto *will trade one of the 4 for 40, just that they *should.

5.) 07 Jun 2021 13:49:05
TopShelf, have you not learn anything from the habs serie? You guys have enough talented players that are better then Tatar already. You need players with the killer instinct for the playoffs. Tatar can’t even crack the Canadiens roster come playoff time. You want to get rid of a player who not only brings a killer instinct but also plays with so much intensity in Zack Hyman for Tatar? I guess you really enjoy regular season hockey!

6.) 07 Jun 2021 15:21:51
Lol the Habs have one fluke playoff run and y’all talk the most crap. The Habs remind me of the 2017 Sens. They’ll get lucky through a run then make a huge trade and start the rebuild.

7.) 07 Jun 2021 15:55:59

Id agree with you for the Tatar deal, the only reason I think Tatar may rather leave (maybe not Toronto, but somewhere) is just cause of the scratching. I think he’ll want a confirmed job in the playoffs too, and as much as the Habs have had a ton of success w/ o him in the lineup, I think him personally would probably rather try to find another team that would play him. Also yeah, i forgot about the Kessel money lol. Still, 79.8 + 1.2 comes to 81, so its enough for the roster without extras.

@Nylander I’m not too sure how Petr plays personally, but there's a ton of goalies on the market this year. Any of Mrazek, Dreidger, Bernier or hell even Reimer who want that money I’d take. As well, Tavares has his NTC so I doubt he moves, and I also want Mitch moved, but I made this plan as a realistic one.

@JAnderson Did you read nothing that I wrote and just read the lineup? Zach Hyman, as much as I absolutely love him, did next to nothing in the playoffs. Giving him a likely 6x6 (which is prib what he gets on the open market thanks to his reg season play) with his play heavily reliant on his body is Okposo esque, which is simply not worth it. Saad at 4x4 is about the same type of player, but a but worse, can score more and is less physical, he's just very rarely talked about. And remember, Toronto tried the ‘playoff killer instinct’ route this year, and absolytely none of Foligno, Thornton, Nash and Simmonds did anything. Relying on skill + some snarl from younger guys like Miles Wood and Jamie Oleskiak is more like it imo. Again, I would love to trade Mitch Marner, truly I would, but I tried to keep this realistic based onwhat Dubas said at his presser.

8.) 07 Jun 2021 19:13:53
I don’t have a problem with them keeping those 4. If they were trading one, I’d still trade Nylander. He had a good 7 games, not being matched up against, big deal. Trade him while his value is higher, even leaf fans think he’s good, lol. I think Matthews and Marner need to be split up. They can both drive a line, Matthews will score 40 no matter who he plays with. Tavares scored 47 I think it was playing with Marner and Hyman. Marner just can’t help but look for Matthews, missing out on scoring chances because he won’t shoot the puck.

9.) 08 Jun 2021 02:21:30
Toronto17 with the best take so far.

10.) 08 Jun 2021 03:19:19
Websjac, there is no fluke when it comes to the habs success. They are a team that are built for the playoffs. With 4 big solid defensemen that clears the front of the net for Price to let him see the puck and make important saves. Up front we have arguably the best fourth line in the league with Perry-Staal- Armia. Then we have Danault who can prevent the best superstars from scoring. Add to that some guys who are willing to pay the price in front of the net and some young players with tons of talent and you have a really good balanced team. Whoever we will play against, we will be able to compete as long as we keep playing as a team. There is no fluke in wining 7 games in a row. You have to work hard to achieve that and make history like the Canadiens did tonight!

11.) 08 Jun 2021 14:27:17
@JAnderson BPF


12.) 08 Jun 2021 15:29:58
I can be one of the hardest leaf fans on my own team but I don’t agree with some that want to blow up the team because of this. The leafs were right there, just couldn’t close the deal. I don’t have the answers but I like the idea of Oleksiak. They could use a couple more rugged d men. I’ve said from the beginning of the year that I liked what Montreal was doing. Toffoli was obviously a great signing. Anderson is a solid signing although the term is questionable with his past injuries. I do like their defence and Price is a stud. I’m a habs fan for a few more weeks, then I will hate them again.

13.) 08 Jun 2021 17:35:53
Toronto17, i'm a habs fan as you probably know. I don’t think Leafs should blow up the team. I think it’s mostly the depth that needs to be adjusted. I also believe that Toronto is one true number one goalie away from getting past that first round and making some damages. John Campbell was not to blame at all he played very well in that Habs serie. But a goalie like John Gibson would of given you guys a better chance to win that game 7. That one bad goal allowed in game 7 gave Montreal some wings and got them the win imo.

14.) 08 Jun 2021 19:31:58
@JAnderson man you’re really saying the Habs didn’t get lucky? They were down 3-1 to the Leafs and only made it through bcuz the Leafs choked the next 4 games. They’ve looked good against Winnipeg but there’s no reason they should have made it past the first round.

15.) 08 Jun 2021 19:34:12
Goalies are a crap shot. Look at Helly vs the Habs. Make a clone of price and the leafs still lose.

16.) 08 Jun 2021 19:42:15
A goalie like Gibson would be great but all goalies allow soft goals once in a while. Campbell was great IMO. I think they need a couple solid 2 way forwards and a couple big, physical d men. I’d rather lose Reilly over Hyman and I’m ok if they let Andersen walk. Campbell and a veteran back up should do the job. Sandin will be solid IMO. Guys like Robertson and Brooks will help with salary issues. They will have a solid team for years to come, they just need the right fit of players to push them over the top.

17.) 08 Jun 2021 23:16:31
@T17 I do agree for the most part, only thing I’m just skeptical on is Hyman just bc of how so many long term contraxts for guys like him have panned out before. If Coleman came for cheaper and less term, or Saad did, I’d welcome them for sure. I think what's more important than anything is for the whole core to understand that they need to step up and that guys like Dubas/ Keefe can’t keep babysitting them and promising safety and whatever. Once a true culture is engrained in this organization, then things will change. So long as Mitch, Auston and Willy are content with this and the management keeps backing them, nothing will change. Not sayjng anyone needs to be fired, but I think Dubas and Keefe really need to stop treating them like babies all the time. Once they mature and start playing with a competitive edge and chip on their shoulder, they’ll be fine. Its just a matter of them actually changing that mental and culture imo. No amount of old guys like Jumbo and Wayne are ever going to change someones mental, it starts with them imo.

18.) 09 Jun 2021 02:24:04
When talking about the habs I forgot to mention Weber is my all time favourite defenseman.

19.) 09 Jun 2021 09:06:52
Websjac, the reason why Montreal won is they wanted it more then Toronto and worked harder for it. Did a few bounces went there way? Y’a of course I won’t deny that. But the fact that are defensemen didn’t let Toronto get to the front of the net for the most part is a huge factor. Toronto’s big guns on offense were shut down completely by Price as well but if he can see they puck he usually makes the saves. I can garante you that if Leafs would of made it to the second round they would not have been able to sweep the Jets like Montreal did. It’s time to give credit to Montreal instead of saying it’s all about luck. You make your own luck in life.

Mantha for Vrana, Panik, 1st, 2nd. Wowza.


1.) 12 Apr 2021 20:35:01
Such a huge overpayment

2.) 12 Apr 2021 21:02:45
Massive overpayment, Vrana's good man. I get the second to dump Panik, but Vrana and a 1st? Man, Mantha has to turn it around big time for Washington.

3.) 12 Apr 2021 21:29:57
Wasn't even sure i read it right at first. Deffenitley puzzled by this.

4.) 12 Apr 2021 23:21:04
As a Wings fan, I liked Mantha and would have ideally liked to keep him but this offer was too good to pass up.

Way better offer than the: Leafs 1st, Kerfoot, 2nd, Andersen for Bernier + Mantha deals I saw on here.

5.) 12 Apr 2021 23:23:05
Also I don’t mind taking salary players back in his place as we also didn’t have to retain salary.

So big win by not retaining and getting players to utilize in his place.

6.) 12 Apr 2021 23:29:09
Good trade.

It's not an overpayment for Mantha. Yes point production is similar but Washington is a much better team than Detroit and that's been true since before Mantha entered the league in the 2016-17 season.

Mantha is also a lot bigger and meaner which is important in the playoffs.

7.) 13 Apr 2021 00:19:36
Yeah Vrana is a year younger and has more points. I’m surprised Washington did this tbh.

I get trading MAF (sorta kinda, even then, he's the face of the franchise), but his agent just said that they weren't even informed of the trade by Vegas and only found out via twitter. F*** Vegas, they’ve probably become the most unlikable team in the league w how their mgmt works (trying to GM like its NHL21 w that bozo McPhee [Erat for Forsberg guy nonetheless], their social media guy is insufferable and their fans all don’t know anything ab hockey.


1.) 27 Jul 2021 16:28:20
Talk is he would not sign off on any trade as he wanted to stay in Vegas because of family reasons, most people think he’s going to just retire now,

2.) 27 Jul 2021 19:19:51
I just read that. that's a horrible way to treat anyone, especially a classy guy like MAF who, like you said, was the face of the franchise.

3.) 27 Jul 2021 20:54:07
I’d rather raise a family in Chicago then Vegas. No idea why he wants to raise a family there.

4.) 28 Jul 2021 02:27:28
I read one article saying he was going to discuss his future with his family. people might have read that and thought that to mean he wanted to stay in Vegas because of family reason. Not sure how old his kids are but yeah I would agree Vegas wouldn’t be my top choice to raise a family either. maybe his wife has some type of connection with the city I don’t know.



21 Jul 2021 19:33:20
And mccann is gone…

Logically, trading Hallander to secure Kerfoot and Holl is better than paying our remaining 2nd to Seattle (since we have no picks this year apart from the 2nd lmfao)

Emotionally, wtf. Only the Leafs would do something like this. Its so stupid, lmfao. McCanns better than Kerfoot anyway, and Holl is a proped up 5th dman who (now that the Leafs protected) will call a 2nd pair shutdown dman just to save face.

Justin Holl is a byproduct of Jake Muzzin. Justin Holl is not a top 4 dman without Jake Muzzin. If Jake Muzzin falls off, Holl falls of even harder. Keeping him, and Dermott, only to stunt prospect growth is unfathomably stupid from the GM and management. Yet, when you make these types of comments to coping Leafs fans, you’re called a fake fan or whatnot because you still have to be optimistic about running back the same team that blew a 3-1 lead and has done nothing this offseason to instil any hope in it.

Man i’m just pissed. Whatever though.


1.) 21 Jul 2021 23:46:44
I have to agree. losing one of dermott or holl would have been better then this outcome. they give up probably there 5th or 6th prospect just to get McCann and then instead of going the 7-3-1 route and keeping him they do this instead. I mean It wasn’t even a given that Seattle would take holl considering the amount of dmen that were available.

2.) 21 Jul 2021 23:52:21
I was trying to explain why this was stupid to leafs fans on social media. I agree with everything you said.

3.) 22 Jul 2021 01:54:13
a 7th rounder and a no name prospect to keep your roster intact is a small price to pay if that's what you want to do as a gm.

that being said.

muzzin was a by product of doughty a few years ago

holl is decent, worth keeping.

this is seriously no problem whatsoever. nothing to be pissed about, whatever though,

4.) 22 Jul 2021 02:06:33
I really fail to see how McCann is better. McCann has hott stretches but he isn’t consistent. He also doesn’t PK. Kerfoot is very vanilla but he gets the job done on a consistent bases. McCann is better when on his game but he’s hott and cold compared to Kerfoot who showed up when it counted. Also Holl should be valued as he’s cheap and has great chemistry with Muzzin on a non existent right side.



05 Jul 2021 16:11:41
RIP Kivi, the goalie from Columbus. PR wrote that he sustained a ‘tragic injury’, don’t know what the cause was but no matter what, its tough news to hear.

Rest in peace🙏🏻.




01 Jul 2021 16:13:41
Wow. Vik Arvidsson for 2nd and 3rd from LAK. Steal for LA imo, but had to be done since LA is going to protect 4/ 4 in the expansion draft.


1.) 02 Jul 2021 01:27:09
Smart move by both teams in my mind. Only thing I’m wondering is how does this deal affect the overall trade market? Some may argue it’s too much or not enough for Arvidsson but also the expansion draft plays an effect as TopShelf pointed out.

Does this trade get an idea the realm of cost to move players pre-expansion if you have slots at forward vs Defence or vice versa? Thought I’d add this question to discuss.

2.) 02 Jul 2021 14:25:24
Yeah I think it does Datsyuk their will definitely be more moves and GMs will use this to set the Market. My guess is Copp/ Appleton or Matt Dumba is the next trade made.

3.) 02 Jul 2021 16:55:47
@Nylander, I agree that those two are definitely ones to consider as odd ones out for sure with value.

The question is how much are they getting then? I could see Copp/ Appleton get in the range of a 4th-3rd pick with a plus potentially depending on how many teams buying.

Dumba I could see getting maybe 2 2nds as a starter.

I think those players will get more not necessarily due to buyers lining up for those players but they will require more value as you have to factor in the other player being lost by team x in expansion draft.

Allez Montreal! To Sosa and Habby, cheers friends. As tough as it is as a Leaf Fan, I’m happy for y’all, been a hell of a year and yall deserve the happiness. Not that I’m actively rooting for the Habs as a Leaf fan lol, but still y’all been around here since day 1 so I thought I’d give out a celebratory congrats.

Thanks TSS. not going to lie, I was in tears after that goal. Whatever happens I am so proud of this team, and this is the happiest I have been since my High School Graduation year of 1993.
I hope for Price and Weber they can pull it off. IMO. they are both the best players in there position ever to not win a cup.

And TSS. thanks. if it was Leafs going in. which they will one day soon. i'd congrat you as well, and also cheer for them. jus not Matthews lol
Funny, I dispise American players. however I am turning. as WOW. that little guy Caufield is a player.! .

Every fan of every team in the North division should be a little extra proud today. a lot of negative Nancy’s are finally seeing it wasn’t near as weak as they said it was all year.

Holl>Gudas for the price. No from Toronto. Both are about the same, Gudas more physical, Holl more mobile. Holl’s slightly cheaper so I wouldn’t want to give up Dermott AND Holl for a single dman. Even of its to get Lily playing time, i’d rather just ship Dermott for a mid round pick from soneone in need of dmen (Vancouver? ) to recoup assets.

Ah yes Justin Holl would be lucky to make the New Jersey Devils. Of course.

Rielly doesn’t come close to ROR. Lol. Even then, STL with Parayko/ Faulk/ Krug and TOR with Matthews/ TavRes - what sense does this make?

Thats not enough for Chych, and the Yotes won't trade Doan because of Shane Doan, but to say Josh Doan is more valuable than Robertson is laughable.

I think Eichel's value has tanked a bit recently, but this seems about right, and may even be an overpayment. A 1st to dump Lucic is accurate considering what it took for Ghost/ Ladd imo, Then, Monahan, Zary, 1st and Kuznetsov for Eichel may be slightly rich, so maybe you could drop Kuznetsov for a weaker prospect, since I've heard good things about him?

Then Monahan likely gets flipped for another 1st (Probably less than Reinhart got), so in the end, three 1sts, Zary and another middling prospect + taking on Lucic's contract seems about right tbh.

Pretty good value, and with the way that Buffalo's handled negotiations, I think they'd be foolish to not take a deal like this.
