Vancouver Canucks:

- Nick Paul {39P in 43GP AHL}

- Gabriel Gagne

Ottawa Senators:

- Brandon Sutter {3.5M for 2yrs}

- Olli Juolevi

==

Vancouver sheds a little bit of cap to help them sign Brock Boeser and Goldobin.

Ottawa lacks depth and veteran leadership on their centre depth and team in general. Sutter is still a good PK and 2-way centre. He brings lots of experience that should be good for the young locker room.

Vancouver adds size to their prospect pool as Nick Paul is 6'4 230lbs and Gagne is 6'5 215lbs.

Vancouver and Ottawa exchange disappointing prospects. Gagne was a 36h overall pick in 2015 and was one of the best PF in the draft. Juolevi's potential is much higher and he's younger so for a rebuilding team taking Sutter's contract is worth it.

Both teams win. Ottawa adds to their defence prospect pool and if Juolevi turns out to be even close to what he was projected, this is a steal for them. Canucks shed salary while also adding size.

No from Vancouver. As I’ve explained twice already, the Canucks are not in a cap crunch. We have 5 mil in cap space, when we trim our roster at the start of the year that will go to 7 mil, and when we put Roussel on LTIR we will have around 10-11. The Canucks are NOT in a cap crunch, we will NOT be overpaying to move out bad contracts, stop with these trash trades and do some research before posting.


2.) 15 Jul 2019 21:42:01
Why do people think LTIR solves all there cap problems? I’m thinking Canucks don’t make this trade but Sutter is a contract I’m sure they’d pay to dump.


3.) 15 Jul 2019 22:26:05
Gagne went to Toronto and went unqualified, he's an UFA rn. I don't think Vancouver would do this, they’d probably rather try and trade Schaller, Beagle, etc, lower cap hits so less moving cost.


 

 

13 Jul 2019 00:04:35
Team with the best prospect pool for each position?
My picks:

Goalie - Edmonton
Defence - ??
Forward - Ottawa

There's like 4-5 teams that have really nice prospects for defence, really difficult to pick which one

TyBa4

1.) 13 Jul 2019 00:43:22
Tampa, Philadelphia, Leafs are my top three picks.


2.) 13 Jul 2019 02:29:30
I'm bias but Blackhawks is looking pretty good.


3.) 13 Jul 2019 02:55:14
Makar, Bryam, Timmons. Bouchard, Broberg, Samurakov. Maybe not the deepest but two teams with really high end D prospects.


4.) 13 Jul 2019 03:20:52
Chicago has bloquist, ian mitchell.


5.) 13 Jul 2019 03:24:13
Woulda said Chicago before they traded jokiharju. But I'm bias but have two defensemen that were better than a point per game in junior last year.


6.) 13 Jul 2019 03:42:06
How do Edmonton and Ottawa have the best ANYTHING? Lmao. If any Vancouver has the best goalie prospects with Demko and DiPietro.


7.) 13 Jul 2019 04:37:19
Honestly I don’t think Tampa has the best prospect pool st any position. I think it’s Colorado for D but that’s about all I’m willing to commit to.


8.) 13 Jul 2019 04:52:04
Ebsolutley makes a good point.


9.) 13 Jul 2019 05:06:04
@Vertius
Stuart Skinner looking really good, his potential is to be a starter. We know what he’s capable of when he gets hot. (.932 save % in the WHL playoffs)
Dylan Wells had very lowkey good OHL career. Looking to be the AHL backup this year. Only 21.
Shane Starrett surprised everyone in Bakersfield with his talent. Took away the starting job from everyone.
Hayden Hawkey one of the best goalies in the NCAA right now. Not sure, but I’m pretty sure he’s a top 3 goalie statistically.
Olivier Rodrigue was the best goalie prospect in the NHL draft a year ago.
Ilya Konovalov KHL’s rookie of the year. Already a KHL star while only being 20 years old.

For Ottawa:
These forwards don’t even need an explanation
Drake Batherson, Colin White, Logan Brown, Tkachuk, Abramov, Josh Norris, Jacob Bernard-Docker, Shane Pinto, Filip Chpalik, Johnathan Davidsson.


10.) 13 Jul 2019 07:43:50
Is it really difficult tho like really?

Best defence prospect group hands down with absolutely zero debut is Colorado Connor Timmons ( not as we’ll know was injured this year but should crack the lineup this season potential top 2 dman worst case he’s a solid 2 way top 4 guy. AND Byram/ Makar we all know those 2 the both have all star potential. Then Detroit has the 2nd to best D group imo.

Forwards got to be the Rangers Kappo Kakko And Kravstov up front are two top 5 prospects + they got Howdwn, Chytil and Lias Andersson

Goaltending easily Flyers if Carter Hart is still considered a prospect he’s a star in the making he’s the next Carey Price.


11.) 13 Jul 2019 07:45:53
I like the leafs 2 kid goalies more then edmontons. But nyi have a top prospect goalie that if he comes from khl they have the best.


12.) 13 Jul 2019 06:51:04
jbd is defence.


13.) 13 Jul 2019 07:00:20
ottawa has chabot, wolanin, brannstrom, jbd, tychonick, and the Finn they took in the 1st round this year on defence which in my opinion is a fairly solid crop. i would even consider their goalie position somewhat stocked with Gustavsson, daccord, hogberg and sogaard in the pipeline.


14.) 13 Jul 2019 07:04:38
and you forgot formenton on forward, but added the likes of chlapik and brown.


15.) 13 Jul 2019 10:33:33
@Facelift
Yeah, forgot Formenton because I thought I already mentioned him. But yeah, Formenton is a top one.
@Vb
I don’t know if you’re related to Carter Hart, but you have to relax with him lol.
Ottawa’s is better, sure Kravstov and Kakko lead, but they don’t have that much depth as the Senators. 2 players won’t lead you to the playoffs, just ask the Oilers.


16.) 13 Jul 2019 13:21:51
Like I said Chytil is looking like a top 6 forward, Lias Andersson looking like a very good middle 6 Center and Howden who is pretty hyped. Who does Ottawa have Tuch is good

Kappo Kakko> Batherson, Brown, Norris And Chaplik combined. Colin White And Brady Tkachuk are not prospects anymore the played a full season in the NHL.

Norris >>>>> Logan Brown

Then they got Kappo Kakko.


17.) 13 Jul 2019 14:06:19
Lol what most of my post got cut off like what Idk why I said Tuch he plays on Vegas I must’ve meant Norris or something and there was way more I never even said Logan Brown>>>>>>Norris. I’m so confused.


18.) 13 Jul 2019 14:39:35
Dont count out the islanders, they have some great defensive prospects starting with dobson.


19.) 13 Jul 2019 15:58:10
Dallas has pretty good goalie prospects too.


20.) 13 Jul 2019 23:00:37
Clueless, islanders got one goalie from russia. konovalov is younger and putting up the same Numbers + they got got starrett and Skinner or i would say every oilers goalie prospect is doing great


And on defence oilers prospect should at least be top three . bouchard Broberg Jones samorukov everyone of them should be ready to make the team 20-21.


21.) 13 Jul 2019 23:29:22
Are any of these Oiler goalies going to be ready before McDavid gives up on the team?


22.) 14 Jul 2019 01:41:46
Oilers have some goalie depth and couple of them have looked decent. They have drafted 7 goalies in the last 6 drafts so they should have some depth. They are probably not going to be able to keep them all for much longer and I'm not sure if Hayden Hawkey will be resigned. Also rodrigue is looking more like a Zachary fucale then a future starting goalie.

Edmonton Oilers:

- Tyler Toffoli (RW) {4.6M 1yr}

LA Kings:

- Jesse Puljujarvi

- Matt Benning (RD) {1.9M 1yr}

==
Helps both teams.
LA Kings shed salary and get a potentially high reward prospect and depth on defence.
Kings currently have Matt Roy and LaDue who are borderline NHLers playing on their right side.
Benning has the NHL experience and could potentially benefit from a change of scenery. Cheap and short contract too.
Toffoli will look to give his career a fresh start as in the last 2 seasons the forward he struggled. (81P in 164GP, 34 points last season.).
Oilers get a winger to help RHN.

TyBa4

1.) 10 Jul 2019 03:41:43
LA says no I’m sure. Toffoli is far superior to Puljujarvi and Benning doesn’t make up the difference.


2.) 10 Jul 2019 06:09:07
Toffoli had 30 something points last season. I think if Puljujärvi played a full and healthy season he can definitely reach 30 points.
You don’t know hockey if you say he can’t.
Matt Benning will become their second best right shot defenceman.


3.) 10 Jul 2019 06:10:13
Toffoli is 27 and has had one good season (58P) and two decent (47,49). His career average is 46P a season. I think he would be worth it for sure but he could be one of those guys that goes for a lot cheaper than expected.


 

 

09 Jul 2019 21:10:29
Alex Nylander for Henri Jokiharju.
High risk high reward for the Blackhawks.

TyBa4

1.) 09 Jul 2019 22:22:46
Fun fact:
Although being a defenceman and younger than Alex Nylander, Jokiharju has scored more points than Nylander in the NHL and has a higher PPG than Nylander in the AHL.


2.) 09 Jul 2019 22:24:34
Yep to early to say for sure but I never in a million years make this deal from a hawks perspective at this time. Maybe they saw more in Nylander then I have I guess.


3.) 09 Jul 2019 22:31:48
Good deal for both teams.


4.) 09 Jul 2019 22:34:12
I agree, Buffalo won this trade big time if Alex Nylander become anything less then his brother. Problem is he's 1 year younger and hasn't done much professionally so the trade looks very one sided for Buffalo.


5.) 09 Jul 2019 23:38:23
I wasnt happy when I heard this. jokiharu is the most nhl ready prospect on defense and easy top 4 potential. I'm guessing bowman is hoping for a strome like resurgence and if that happens it's a good trade. But right now seems buffalo won this trade.


6.) 10 Jul 2019 03:46:34
Bowman’s job is on the line. This appears to be a trade made out of desperation. He can’t trade Seabrook or Keith and has Boqvist, so Jokiharju becomes expendable. Hawks roll the dice up front with Nylander.


7.) 10 Jul 2019 04:05:39
I’m just glad because this raised Puljujarvi’s value by a lot.
Puljujärvi has more value than Nylander and he got a B+ defensive prospect. Before we were talking about Puljujärvi getting a third liner.


 

 

03 Jul 2019 10:00:52
Edmonton Oilers:

- Michael Dal Colle (LW) {RFA}

New York Islanders:

- Jesse Puljujarvi (RW) {RFA}

===

Switch of scenery for both struggling players. Both RFAs. Oilers get their winger.

Sign Dal Colle to a 2year deal with 1.3M/yr
==+

Edmonton Oilers:

- Ondrej Palat (LW/RW) {5.3M/3yrs}

Tampa Bay Lightning:

- Sam Gagner (C/RW) {3.2M/1yr}

- 2020 3rd round pick*

===

Tampa Bay sheds a lot of salary and get to sign Brayden Point. Sam Gagner is still an NHL caliber player and would fill Palat's role. His contract also expires next year and with Tampa Bay needing to sign Sergachev next year, Palat seems like the odd man out.

Oilers get another help on the wing. They shed Gagner's salary which makes them fit under the cap for this season. Palat is an excellent 2-way winger that just struggles in Tampa Bay.

*3rd turns into a 2nd if Palat scores more than 20 goals or more than 55 points.

Palat-McDavid-Draisaitl
Dal Colle-RHN-Chiasson
Khaira-Granlund-Kassian
Lucic-Brodziak-Jurco

Klefbom-Larsson
Nurse-Russell
C.Jones-Benning

Koskinen
Smith

Extras: C.Marody(C/RW), Yamamoto(RW), Cave (C/LW/RW), Benson (LW), B.Manning(LD), E.Bear(RD)

Remaining Salary Cap Space: 0.8M

TyBa4

1.) 04 Jul 2019 01:25:47
“Oiler’s shed Gagner’s salary which helps them fit Uber the cap”. But then they take on Palat’s salary which is $2M more and puts them back over again? Gagner is not an NHL player. And never was a good one to begin with.


2.) 04 Jul 2019 08:07:30
From a TB perspective, I don't think they do it. Might help cap wise next year, but decreases our competitiveness for this year.


3.) 04 Jul 2019 12:15:04
They traded Miller to make room for Point. They have enough space they don’t need to trade a top 6 winger for nothing. Palats biggest struggles have been with injuries, decent chance he’s traded next year to make room it there’s absolutely no reason to dump him this year and take on Gagne. Gagne would definitely not take on Palats role in the top 6 on a competitive team.


4.) 04 Jul 2019 21:36:21
HockeyFanatic
I’m not sure how you did the math. At the time of that post Oilers had 3.9 m in cap space.

3.9-1.2 (Dal Colle) = 2.7
5.3-3.2=2.1

2.7-2.1 = $600k.

Most underrated goalie in the NHL?

TyBa4

1.) 14 Jul 2019 06:47:28
John Gibson or Ben bishop.


2.) 14 Jul 2019 07:45:13
John Gibson is a beast


3.) 14 Jul 2019 13:46:50
Carey Price.


4.) 14 Jul 2019 14:44:36
John Gibson plays on a weak team so possibly him he’s a star MAF is an absolute beast for Vegas. Carey Price might be starting to get a little underrated he’s still the best goalie in the game IMO.


5.) 14 Jul 2019 16:33:25
Good one Mantha. Everyone knows he’s one of the best goalies in the world. When you play like sh*t though, you don’t get recognition.


6.) 14 Jul 2019 20:11:42
I feel like people know how good John Gibson is. .920+ save % in the seasons before 18-19.
My pick is Jacob Markstrom. Most games he’s the reason Vancouver wins. Has been stuck on crappy teams with bad defence his entire NHL career. Played 60 games last two seasons while posting respectable stats.


7.) 15 Jul 2019 19:37:46
As good as Price is, I would want nothing to do with that contract. I don’t think paying a goalie over $10 mln a year is a good use of cap space if you want to win a cup.


8.) 17 Jul 2019 16:09:09
When that goalie is Carey Price, you pay him what he wants.


9.) 17 Jul 2019 16:30:35
Yet he’s underrated Mantha? Maybe you should google what that means.


 

 

13 Jul 2019 22:51:05
What's the play for Jim Benning? Needs to sign Boeser and Goldobin. Both are set to get raises.

They have exactly 5M in salary cap to sign those two. Benning kind of screwed himself when signing Myers and Ferland.
Contracts like Sutter's, Eriksson's, Roussel's, Beagle's and Pearson's will be difficult to trade.

Is Chris Tanev on his way out? Is this the right time to trade him? Will teams that missed out on free agents overpay for him?

TyBa4

1.) 13 Jul 2019 23:09:14
It's really hard to figure out what Benning is doing. He makes a terrible trade, giving up a first for Miller, signs Meyers to a bad contract, signed Eriksson to a horribad contract a few years back and still has the other bad contracts you mentioned. Leaving him with no money to sign actual good players. So, the Canucks haven't improved at all, will be a cap team and will in all likelihood be in the draft lottery. I don't get it.


2.) 14 Jul 2019 01:33:50
Lucic 50% retained and Kris Russel for Loui Erickson 25% retained and Chris Tanev.


3.) 14 Jul 2019 01:46:45
The start of the season is still a ways off I wouldn't hit the panic button yet. they have some maneuvering to do like a lot of teams but I would think they have every intention on resigning boeser maybe goldy gets traded and they unload a few more dead weight contracts. They still have a few months to get it in order.


4.) 14 Jul 2019 06:04:01
The Miller deal is only bad because Vancouver probably isn’t the right team to making that trade. Miller is a really under appreciated player he’s got top 6 wing skill and can play any style for anywhere in the lineup. The price really isn’t what’s bad a first for Miller isn’t bad value. Probably would have helped if he tried to negotiate even just a bit though.


5.) 14 Jul 2019 07:37:10
How will they unload those dead weight contracts? Give up
prospects or high picks? If so, DiPietro will most likely get traded. The return won’t be great though. The teams that needed a goalie got one in the draft.
I don’t know what they will do. They aren’t the team to give up picks and prospects when they’re in the bottom 10 of the league.


6.) 14 Jul 2019 11:59:25
Worst Gm in the league=Jim Bening/ Kyle Dubas.


7.) 14 Jul 2019 16:55:16
I’m not going to get into this too much because you’re a troll. Let me explain to you how things work Mantha. Sometimes when you have a ton of talent on a team, it’s hard to stay under the cap, therefore moves need to be made. Montreal does not have to worry about having too much talent.


8.) 14 Jul 2019 19:49:40
That team with a ton of talent had 4 more points then the team without it lol.


9.) 14 Jul 2019 19:54:25
But now you might understand why I say a lot of negative things about the leafs when some of their homers are constantly posting biased garbage.


10.) 14 Jul 2019 22:05:44
How did I know I’d get a response from you habby. That was meant for the troll that bashes the leafs with every post. Montreal doesn’t have the Marner, Mathews, Nylander or Tavares but Montreal plays with more heart. Montreal will have their share of cap problems if Domi continues to play well and their young players they’ve drafted step up. Let alone their massive contracts that seldom get talked about. Don’t get your panties in a bunch habby, I never talk up Leaf players and you should know that. i'm usually defending just like you are.


11.) 14 Jul 2019 22:14:39
Myself and maybe top shelf are the only leaf fans to call out other leaf fans habby. I don’t see you telling Mantha he’s out to lunch. Since you’re so good at going through the archives, find a post where I’m posting biased garbage or even talking about leafs players. I remember one discussion with you about Kadri and Danault, other than that I don’t say much unless I’m defending something. Or find a post that I’ve said something negative about Montreal, other than the one above. You’re constantly bashing the leafs, just not as bad as the troll. Get off your f’n pedestal.


12.) 15 Jul 2019 00:12:32
I make a little comment to allow you to see when you called me out last week I was just doing the same thing you are now. I didn't accuse you of posting the biased garbage I just simply said that I said negative things about the leafs with the intent on just going against the homers. The exact same thing you just did. You reply with this and I'm the one that shouldn't get my panties in a bunch? Lol ok man have fun on your f'n pedestal.


13.) 15 Jul 2019 00:24:54
But just because you were so nice to me here's another thing you may not know. Most teams usually have a season or two at least of moderate success before they run into cap trouble. Now I mean it's left to be seen if Montreal will or not with the current group but Toronto should soon be getting past the first round by now don't you think?


14.) 15 Jul 2019 03:46:22
I happily call out Pinball a lot of the time don’t think I’ve ever proposed anything to outlandish.


 

 

07 Jul 2019 19:15:45
Where will the Blue Jackets finish? They've done very little in free-agency and perhaps it's a good thing as they didn't overpay for a mediocre free agent.

Still have 14M in cap space. Personally, I think they should be pushing hard to get Gusev. Perhaps somebody like Alexandre Texier going back to the Knights?

Biggest issue is their goalies. Joonas Korpisalo finished the last two seasons with a save % below .900 and Elvis Merzlikins never played a game in North America.

TyBa4

1.) 07 Jul 2019 23:38:27
If that goaltending can be nhl level level for an entire season they are a playoff contender.


2.) 08 Jul 2019 05:12:25
Being a backup can have lower numbers than what they’re capable of because it’s hard to get in a rhythm playing once every 5 games. I think Korpisalo will be fine if he gets in a rhythm I know they’re high on him. They just got in the playoffs last year and lost a lot, i'm sure they’ll be fine but they don’t have a lot of offensive depth and like stated you don’t really know what they’ll get from their goalies.


3.) 08 Jul 2019 16:15:19
They barely made the playoffs last year, then lost a franchise goalie, one of the best offensive wingers in hockey, as well as a really good player in Duchene and a speedster in Dzingel., and really haven't added much to replace those guys. Nyquist, that's all I know of
I think its going to have a hard time. yes they have some star Dmen., maybe if Dubois takes his game to another level, and Atkinson can his keep doing his thing, maybe they have a chance at a playoff., I think NJ, Mtl and probably Buffalo have surpassed them Rangers as well.


4.) 08 Jul 2019 16:16:52
And of course the Panthers as well , going to be tough for Columbus.


5.) 08 Jul 2019 21:57:43
Come on Sosa can’t leave the Flyers out of that group.


6.) 08 Jul 2019 23:45:47
Sorry VB. didn't think of them. but ya, the Flyers as well. as long as the decades long battle they have had with Goalttending is decent. Hart is going to be a good one, but he's young, and may not be 100% ready to lead the team.


7.) 09 Jul 2019 01:41:54
Hart is/ will be an absolute beast soon.


 

 

07 Jul 2019 19:10:44
Is it at all possible that one of Niklas Backstrom or Brayden Holtby walk from the Washington Capitals?

Both UFAs next summer and both probably looking for a raise. With the way the market is going Backstrom it would be reasonable to assume he's going to get paid around 7.5-9m/season.
20G 50A veteran centre, is it worth it?

Holtby's contract currently has him on a 6.1m cap hit. Bobrovsky recently signed 10m/ year contract with the Panthers.
Holtby is a little worse than Bob (.911 save % & 2.82GAA vs .913 save % & 2.58GAA) should we expect a contract around 8-9m/year?

Vrana also needs to be re-signed next year and if he improves the same way he did last season he could get around 4.5-5m/season.

I'm sure there would be a team like the Hurricanes that will overpay significantly if Hotlby went on the market.

TyBa4

1.) 07 Jul 2019 19:30:42
Baraydon Hoaltby is probably gone or taking a backup position soon that’d common Knowledge Was known since Samsonov was drafted. It’d be strange seeing Backstrom in a different Jersey.


2.) 08 Jul 2019 00:20:12
Sorry to disappoint VB but Samsonov isn’t looking too great.
Couldn’t secure a starting role in the KHL and had a horrible season in the AHL year. .898 save % and a 2.70 GAA.


3.) 08 Jul 2019 01:19:18
If Backstrom hits free agency I can see him getting 10+.


4.) 08 Jul 2019 03:55:21
@Eb
For sure see that. 7.5 if he takes a discount to stay in a Washington but definitely not surprising if somebody overpays.


5.) 08 Jul 2019 08:30:07
True maybe he’d push for a couple more years at a cheaper price. 7.5 for 6 years maybe. I could see Holtby singing a similar contract if he stays. Also Vrama needs a deal this season.
Washington has 4.3M in cap space. I could see Vrana getting a Nurse type deal. 3.2M for 2 years. Stephenson will probably get over 1M and Djoos the same.


6.) 08 Jul 2019 13:01:40
Well I’ll bet money Hoaltby is gone.


 

 

01 Jul 2019 19:26:52
Annoyed about the lack of changes on the Edmonton Oilers.
Holland should 100% been on Burakovsky, hell, we need a winger so bad i'd be fine with giving up two 2nd round picks for him.
Signed a 37 year old goalie that had a below .900 save % last season.
Chiasson and Khaira are fine signings, but keeping the same players and expecting a better result is idiotic.
Jurco seems to be another Rattie. Excellent AHL but not good enough for the NHL.

With only about 3 million in cap space left and gaping holes on the wing, this season already looks below .500 before it even started.

Perfect day would have been to sign Simmonds to a 1yr 5 million deal,
Khaira 2 yrs 1.3 m.
Daniel Carr 1yr 900k.
Keith Kinkaid 1yr 1m
Corey Perry 1yr 2M

TyBa4

1.) 01 Jul 2019 20:59:22
I’m sure Vessey would’ve been an upgrade to whoever they plan to have on Nuges LW.
I also think he should’ve traded Russell before buying out Sekera now that I think about it more. Sekera - Jones would’ve been a solid 3rd pair.

My perfect day would’ve been
Connolly 3.25M 4YR
Hartman 1.9M 2YR
Brassard 3.5M 1YR

Vesey / Burakovsky trade.
Miller trade.

As a Wings Fan who has seen Holland’s moves, today was pretty textbook for him by signing Veterans and trying to keep together a core.

At least during the off-season, Trade tends to be his way to build for adding players for a playoff run. Although those deals tend to be bad (Legwand and Cole as most recent, plus Quincey)

I hope Oilers do turn it around, just saying this is Holland’s style.

He along with every other guy involved with the Oilers including fans said they need to improve depth on the wings. So even with his style I still think it’s a little surprising he didn’t trade for one of Burakovsky, Vesey or sign Simmonds, Connolly, Donskoi, Hartman, Filppula.

@Datsyuk,
Hard to be an Oilers fan. You got Ken “No Moves” Holland
and Dave “I only care about defence” Tippett. Tippett’s style isn’t going to work, league is all about speed.

There were such better GMs and coaches available.
Todd Nelson would have been perfect. Players love him and he cares about speed.

Yamamoto should be a full-time NHLer this season. Hopefully he’ll be good enough for our 2nd/ 3rd line. Marody can also play wing, and Benson will get his shot. Relying on rookies to fix your wing issues is idiotic though.

I'm not even a Leafs fan but can we just chill out on Nylander?

Dude has been a stud in every league he played in. Highest PPG % on his team while being 18 and playing in a league filled with men that have lots of NHL experience (14-15 Marlies) . He's a 20G 40A centre that's only just turned 23. Special teams specialist too.

@Pinball

Don't listen to Vertius. I don't think he has had a single comment where the agree outweighed the disagree. Not sure how the Admins even allowed that comment to go through tbh.

But yeah, think it's bad for Buffalo. Value wise it might be close but that doesn't mean Buffalo does it. One step forward two steps back. Reinhart is really starting to finally pan out and fit on the first line. Even though Risto is meh, he's still like their best defender (Dahlin is still only 19). Not to mention they were really high on Cozens. Cozens projects to be a highly, highly skilled PF.

Lol Vb what are you talking about? You’re the same kid that said “over here on the east side of Canada we don’t do that “you’re” sh*t. We just say your and be done with it” and then called everybody “inbreads” in the fantasy league lolol.

I’m confused, why would the Leafs trade Nylander to shed cap and then sign Tkachuk to a 7M AAV when Nylander already gets paid the exact same amount.
Toronto’s problem isn’t that Marner doesn’t want to sign with them, it’s that they don’t have the money to sign him and right now it’s just a waiting game on who breaks first. Will Marner take a pay cut to stay with the Leafs or will the Leafs trade somebody to make room for Marner.
