to NJ

to Edmonton

I mean I get the devils owe the oilers one for the hall trade, but that trade is horrible.

Red Wings deadline moves

to Winnipeg

to Detroit

It may seem like neither trade is what either team needs, and while that may be true for Byfuglien and Athanasiou, they both play a role in future moves, as Detroit suddenly has a huge trade piece for potential deals with teams with lots of space like the Islanders or Avalanche if he chooses to return to play, while Winnipeg could choose to flip Athanasiou for more defensemen, as they still have a decent shot at making the playoffs given their current situation.

to Edmonton
Green (2M retained)

to Detroit

Green is having quite a bad season by his standards-- the hope would be that he finds his game in a new situation, and I don't think that's a very unrealistic scenario. Detroit, while taking on a year of Kris Russell, gets a player (Granlund) who might flourish in an increased role in Detroit as well as picks, as the team is probably still a few years from being anything close to good and should be stockpiling assets.

1.) 30 Jan 2020 18:02:21
No from Winnipeg. The Jets have plenty of bottom pairing defensemen, we don't need another and Athanasiou, is not needed at all and will be looking for a big raise.

Plus why would Detroit trade for a player that is still injured and may not want to play anymore?

2.) 30 Jan 2020 18:34:21
No decision on Buff will be made until he is healthy enough to play and if he wants to play. If the Jets and Buff are OK he could play with the Jets, if not then the Jets will trade him to a team wanting a difference maker for a cup push.

3.) 30 Jan 2020 20:40:27
Or Detroit could just trade Athanasiou for a defenseman that they could use?

Or picks/ prospects which is what they're actually looking for.

4.) 30 Jan 2020 21:08:56
If a team wants a difference making player for a playoff push, why would they want Big Old Buff. He’s maybe a top 4 D at this point but that's about it. And no guarantees he even comes back to play. IMO he had a good career and should think about retirement.

to Montreal

to Vegas

1.) 29 Jan 2020 00:06:03
No from Montreal

2.) 29 Jan 2020 01:38:19
When making a trade for petry think about what muzzin got and then possibly add a bit more.

to NY Rangers

to Edmonton

Puljujarvi is worth more than Kreider, but the oilers are not going to have the room to acquire him unless they shed some salary. Gagner is an easy piece to flip for the rangers, and despite him being of negative value for the oilers, he will improve the package for NY. A win-win.

1.) 09 Jan 2020 03:08:22
I’m not sure how a “negative value” player improves the package. Somebody is definitely going to give Puljujarvi a chance, it will be interesting to see how that turns out. For the oilers sake, hopefully it is soon to give them a legitimate chance at being a contender.

2.) 09 Jan 2020 05:55:20
Kreider will fetch a lot more than that package.

3.) 10 Jan 2020 04:41:46
I'm not sure puljujarvi is worth more than kreider. I think kreider is worth more.

4.) 10 Jan 2020 12:12:21
Is Edmonton going to make the playoffs? Questionable. Doubtful even. They won’t trade Puljujarvi for a UFA. They will be looking for futures or young roster players.

5.) 12 Jan 2020 05:48:31
Kreider fetches more at the deadline.



09 Jan 2020 01:28:35
to Winnipeg

to Ottawa

Winnipeg has been using Wheeler, a winger, as a center due to a lack of Bryan Little (who has been declining anyway) . This would be the third straight playoffs where the Jets trade for a center; I'd say this one works out better than Hayes but falls short of what Stastny was able to do.

1.) 09 Jan 2020 03:50:17
No thanks, the Jets don't need a 3C and are in no position to waste assets going trying to make a push.

2.) 09 Jan 2020 16:01:48
Jets are better off waiting for Little to come back then making this trade.

3.) 10 Jan 2020 12:16:35
Jets decline because everyone knows Jets don’t make deadline deals for centres and because a minor league player and a non first round pick is way more valuable than a player that would help make the Jets a better team heading into the playoffs. Why would they want to win the cup? Sounds silly to me.

4.) 21 Jan 2020 18:47:17
How do jets say no to this? Lol if anything Ottawa says no. Forget the 2nd wpg needs to give a 1st no question if they want pageau. He's earned that value even as a rental.

Vegas is going to be over 2 million over the cap next season due to the raises to tuch, stone, schmidt and fleury. there is also an additional undetermined amount due to Karlsson, so that'll add several million more



1.) 09 Mar 2019 17:47:59
Is that including the 8 on injured players?



02 Jan 2018 03:48:33
The Golden Knights have a lot of UFAs. Some they will keep but others will probably be worth more to them traded. They also have 8M in cap space, which is tricky, for various reasons. Also important is the fact I expect them to try and make a playoff run, because of course.
Main issue is Marchessault. He's a great player on the team but is making 750k which is ludicrous for a player who is likely to score 30 goals again. I'd put his value at 5-6M, so that lowers Vegas' cap room in the future, but for this year they will be ok. William Karlsson also is owed a decent amount of money, so they will likely be looking to let some free agents go (they can free up 13.M in Clayton Stoner, David Clarkson and Mikhail Grabovski, and if they keep Luca Sbisa it probably won't be for 3.6M either) . Basically, the cap is friendly to them, so they can afford to use the 8M they have with little concern.
My main thought is that their defense, while capable, is fairly undermanned. The Penguins have shown that it's not an absolute necessity, but they still have had Kris Letang, which continues the trend that has persisted for a good while now of having at least one star defenseman. The Golden knights will have Shea Theodore in that role one day, but for now they need someone who can hold down the fort on the back end who is not the goaltender (they have had very above average goaltending, which may have helped cover up ay weakness in the defensive core) . There are teams with good star defensemen they could trade, which is abnormal but is true (the Coyotes are not going to trade OEL to the Knights though, I'm sorry) . There is one trading partner in particular that I think is especially exciting.

to Carolina
Alex Tuch
Oscar Dansk
mid-round pick

to Vegas
Justin Faulk

There is a significant surplus of goaltenders in Vegas, both as prospects and NHL-regulars, so Dansk becomes expendable (and valuable after his showing during the injury wave) . Tuch is also young and has shown a scoring knack, but is not integral to the success of Vegas. I also think this move would factor into other trades by vegas in which they exchange the spare defensemen for forwards, further mitigating this loss.
Faulk is an all-star defenseman, but Carolina has an abundance of young defensemen who could benefit greatly from his ice time. Carolina is still a bubble team, and may benefit from growing the youth. Dansk will get decent playing time, unless Bill Peters decides he hates him like he did with Eddie Lack and many other goalies.

1.) 02 Jan 2018 06:21:13
Gotta be at least a 1st added IMO. Doesn’t matter though because they just gave Faulk the C so I’m assuming he won’t be traded.

to Dallas

to Tampa Bay

Dallas is the perfect place for Vasilevsky, but there's nothing that Tampa really needs in return. Vaslievsky's value is quite high, but i just don't know what Tampa would want for him

1.) 12 May 2016 01:38:16
Ummmmmmmmm i think this is the dumbest post ever, the only time you see only one team getting a player or pick is when they hire a coach/ GM and vasevsky is a solid prospect they would trade bishop Before him.

2.) 12 May 2016 02:31:46
Seguin or benn then Tampa adds but not going to happen.

3.) 12 May 2016 02:37:27
Tyler seguin and Jamie Benn 50% retained each.

4.) 12 May 2016 02:41:09
Lol this is a good one.

5.) 12 May 2016 03:45:44
I totally miss read that after my bad anyway probably a 1st round pick plus some thing else.

6.) 12 May 2016 07:16:08
Klingberg for Vasilevsky+… I don't know but first Dallas would have to trade a high paid average at best goalie.

Schultz would be a top 4 guy in winnipeg. I'm not a penguins fan so I must just not know enough but I always figured that was his role there as well.

ottawa could add but really toronto should give up a less valuable forward than kapanen.
