Koskanen & 2nd & Jones

St Louis

West is best

1.) 29 Dec 2019 18:56:34
Wouldn't Koskinen have at least the same value as Allen?

2.) 29 Dec 2019 19:28:43
no, @itookdonscherry because, FIRST, koskinen's career record is way better, and SECOND, allen has 2 good seasons and he all of a sudden has a lot more value?

3.) 29 Dec 2019 19:30:29
just rechecked, allen has more wins and better career record, so i guess allen has a better value. but a 2nd and jones too, take out 2nd and make it a 3rd and it goes through.

4.) 29 Dec 2019 20:50:30
Allen sucks per the narrative and gets paid 3 million to much no value at all right yuppy.

5.) 29 Dec 2019 20:54:03
Now blues say no for several reasons. I will give the biggest one

1 blues need to cut salary to resign players getting kosk back at same contract worse goalie and longer term does not help.

6.) 29 Dec 2019 20:55:55
Edm 3rd is likely property of Calgary when Lucic doesn't score 11 goals as a part of the trade conditions. A minor leaguer forward might work in place of the 2nd.

7.) 29 Dec 2019 23:06:50
Blues are not taking back dead salary for minor league players.

8.) 30 Dec 2019 00:36:26
Huge overpay for Allen. Blues could easily do this and then trade Koskonen in the off season. Then they get a return on their investment rather than let Allen walk for free at the end of they year. Makes more sense to me. Are you sure your a blues fan redwings?

9.) 30 Dec 2019 03:34:54
Allen has 1 year left. Kosk8nan has no value. So you day over pay I laugh. You say that blues could easily move kosk next over the off season. I laugh at you again. Lol

Blues say no.

10.) 30 Dec 2019 04:21:00
Yikes. This isn’t a good trade.

11.) 30 Dec 2019 13:32:30
How does Koskanen have no value? Please explain to me how a starting goalie, or at least a 1a/ b tandem goalie, that played 55 games last year and is on pace for at least 40 games this year, with decent numbers on a bad defense team like Edmonton has no value? This I got to year.

12.) 30 Dec 2019 13:33:46
Why isn’t it a good trade yupp? Who isn’t it a good trade for?

13.) 30 Dec 2019 15:29:09
Not a good trade for edm, if there's anything that Allen has proved over and over, he's not the goalie to lead a team. The blues have been really good for a while, but it took a goalie change for them to come from the toilet last year. Allen's numbers always look good, but he won't steal games behind a normal defense.

14.) 30 Dec 2019 15:33:33
Let me walk that back a little. Kosk has no value to the blues. If he has so much value then why is it on the blues to figure out how to flip him. He is an average goalie who nets 4.5mil per season for 3 more years. Allen had generally been above average with slumps here and there. He has only 1 year left after this year and is performing leaps and bounds better than kosk.

.931 2.19

Blues will not trade away allen for Junk and a worse goalie. If they trade allen it will be to lose cap to help resign players not bring a subpar goalie on with the same contract as allen for 3 more years,

So maybe kosk has value right now but not to the blues not when they have Winnington, Allen, Husso, Hofer ect.

15.) 30 Dec 2019 18:23:21
I agree with not wanting kosk, a more realistic trade would be Smith and a pick for Allen, it would make the blues a bit worse, so it's whether they decide a backup downgrade before playoffs is worth a2nd.

For edm they get a goalie duo, which usually Allen does well in.

16.) 30 Dec 2019 19:38:00
I could see it if they were not a contender but they are a ligit contender for the cup so picsk do not help get the cup now.

17.) 31 Dec 2019 13:23:07
^redwingsa most biased guy on here. Worse one ever. You really are a homer.

18.) 31 Dec 2019 14:13:15
The fact that you think the blus would do this in any way shape or form shows your intelligence level. They are the best team in the west and arguably the best team in the league. they are Stanley cup contenders and one of the most favored to win it again. So they should make a trade that will make them worse for sheet futures and keeping kosk for 4 more years when they need to resign petro. Sounds amazing. you want to call me a homer. fine everyone on this site is, but don't sit here and act like I am wrong in my assessment. It makes you look like a child.

19.) 31 Dec 2019 16:17:11
Actually, you look like the child trying to defend this trade and every other blues trade posted on here even when they heavily favor the blues. You put these guys on a pedestal and worship at their feet. If anyone sounds pathetic its you.

20.) 31 Dec 2019 17:16:10
Seriously hockeyfanatic if you can't realize I am not defending but opposing this trade then you are dumber than you appear. Blues are win now. Allen is apart of that. They gave binnington 3 games off to rest and Allen won all three. He is currently performing leaps and bounds better than kosk. So the blues who are Stanley cup contenders should trade him and his 1 remaining year for kosk and his 4 at same hit for Jack sheet. Sounds amazingly stupid just like you lol.



13 Dec 2019 19:33:25

RNH, Koskanin, Puljarrvi or 2nd.

West is best

1.) 13 Dec 2019 20:00:57
Why would Edmonton do that?

2.) 13 Dec 2019 21:47:42
Price is going no where. Just silly.

3.) 14 Dec 2019 01:07:33
Let the Price trades jus go. jus pointless. Unless he demands, he isn't going anywhere.

4.) 16 Dec 2019 16:33:41
Why would montreal do this.

5.) 21 Dec 2019 13:56:46
What exactly did Mtl gain from this trade?



20 Nov 2019 05:50:31
With Byron out for 6 weeks help at forward is needed in Montreal.
Puljarvi says yes to being a hab..
Holland holds the cards a bit on this...

Puljarvi and Gagner for injured Byron and a 3rd.

Oilers are ok to wait for Byron and Habs get 2 forwards today.
Win for both sides.

West is best

1.) 21 Nov 2019 03:22:26
You don’t think Habs would want two nhl level players though? I know Byron is hurt, but in six weeks he will be playing nhl again. Puljujarvi and Garner are not nhl quality players.

2.) 21 Nov 2019 18:13:09
Yes I do think the Habs want/ need 2 NHL level players right now that's why Pulu (top 6 in Montreal) and Gagner, an experienced NHL vet would help out while the injury bug gets in check in Montreal to keep them in the playoff spot till the injury bug is over with.



06 Nov 2019 18:54:00
NYI Toffoli
LAK 1st rounder.

Nashville and Jets also have the cap to do this deal.

West is best

1.) 06 Nov 2019 19:49:25
Is Toffoli worth a 1st? Healthy scratch this year.
Boston is rumored to be very interested in this player also.

2.) 07 Nov 2019 12:00:31
I think toffolli is a 2nd at most.



05 Oct 2019 21:09:18
Pullok in trade rumors today...
Puljarvi yesterday..
Ho sang trade request...
This seems like a natural fit from these players in 1 swift easy trade..

Ho Sang & Pullok
Pulu & Gagner

Oil need younger but experienced d with the injury..Ho Sang and Pulu both have that entitlement arrogance that their current teams are dealing with by burying them n their attitude, Gagner is a vet that can still help this year and isles have the cap space to take him. He played great with Eberle in the past..

Cap wise seems to work out.

Trade may need Edm to send a minor pick so that Snow can say he's 3 for 3 for fleecing the teams in alberta...

West is best

1.) 05 Oct 2019 23:49:35
Wow, this deal works beautifully

If islanders feel they need a rhd back just to fill in until wilde and dobson are ready they could ask for Caleb Jones or Ethan Bear and in return islanders hand over a pick in 4th round.

Your deal is totally fine. no need for improvement. just a just in case scenerio.

2.) 06 Oct 2019 17:15:56
Jones or Bear are worth a lot more than a 4th to the Oilers right now. They can have Manning or Legesson if they need a D added in. Not Jones or Bear. Risto would be a good D to replace Larsson. I would also trade Pul and Gagner for a Risto myself.

3.) 06 Oct 2019 17:19:24
I think you guys are undervaluing Pulock here. Although I like Gagner in the deal because I think he’s still probably a 35-45 point guy.

4.) 06 Oct 2019 17:36:55
Lmao the Islanders aren’t trading their number 1 dman in Pulock for that crap. He’s worth more then any dman on the oilers.

5.) 06 Oct 2019 18:48:00
Pulock worth more than klefbolm, nurse, larsson or bouchard


6.) 06 Oct 2019 23:03:21
Three of the guys in this deal are non-nhl’ers. Pulock is the only player here that is nhl caliber, and as a top 4 defender he is worth more than what is offered here.

First trade might work out

2nd Trade No go, Florida does not have the cap space, and has a large sum invested in the Bob. Can't see them going out for another big $ tender even if they had the cap space.

3rd trade a no go as a top 6 player needs to come from Ottawa to attain Puljarrvi. Pageau rental for Pulu and Gagner is about best Ottawa can hope for. Might be a chance a young player that has a hope of becoming an impactful NHL'er like Logan Brown could be used to attain Puljarrvi? Logan for Puljarrvi and one of the 1M or less bottom 6 in Edm might also be a feasible trade.

4th trade Not a prayer of that happening with a top rated French player being #1 rated in the draft. Habs will NOT offer up a first rounder this year no matter what in hopes to get a lotto win and attain this kid in the year their holding the draft in Montreal.

No go. Edmonton cannot give up a 1st for a half year rental. 2nd rounder is rental rate. Pagy's salary has to go back to Ottawa somehow in the trade as well Gagner / Manning and bottom 6'er plus a 2nd is about the best Ottawa can hope for out of the Capped out Oilers for this rental player.

Salary cap math seems to work out. Need to delete the 2nd or Puljarvi to make the deal fly though as Vatanen is a UFA at the end of the season and hence rental rates apply of ONLY a 2nd rounder or maybe just Jesse.

Pageau is a UFA and only worth a 2nd round pick unless he resigns. Hall wouldn't re-sign prior to a trade and I don't see Pageau doing so either. Current rental Deal would include the 2nd, but also have to have whatever Pageau's Salary is back in the trade as well. No prospects like Bouchard or next year's 1st can be spared for a mere rental player playing less than half a season.

2020 3rd for Edm is already in pending mode with Calgary on the Lucic trade so can't use that in any trade till the end of the season to see if the conditions are met to have to give it to Calgary.
