to Vancouver

to Pittsburgh
2nd 2019
4th 2019

Pittsburgh is becoming increasingly depleted and could use some assets. I don't think this trade happens if Malkin is still in his prime but he's starting to slow down and Vancouver really wouldn't know which version of him they'd be getting. If he's washed this is a steal for pittsburgh, but if he's still got a lot in the tank this would lift Vancouver way up as far as the Pacific Division is concerned.

1.) 19 May 2019 06:32:27
I’m sure Pittsburg will want more, and Vancouver won’t want to pay more.

2.) 19 May 2019 20:21:09
Worst Malkin proposal ever. A Defenceman heading towards bust, a bust winger who is 22 and his best season was what 25 points? and 2nd and 3rd lol.

3.) 20 May 2019 22:19:27
Better players and higher picks need to go back to PIttsburgh.

Boeser instead of Virtanen, Agree Joelevi's a bust and puts a detriment to the deal, and perhaps upping the picks to some 1sts are more realistic.

to Buffalo
Zajac (50% retained)

to NJ

Buffalo is running out of seasons in which they can be bad. Zajac is a good-not-great center with a big contract, but at ~2.8 that's all of a sudden a good value player. If there were more years left on his contract the Devils could probably fetch a bigger prospect but this will likely be the best they can get for him.

1.) 19 May 2019 15:49:30
Value you wise good deal.



18 May 2019 20:09:38
to LA

to Colorado
Martinez (1M retained)

1.) 19 May 2019 00:32:23
But why would Colorado do this? I do not think they need right defenseman. They have oh so many already. And Bowers is very good prospect. Avalanche are still rebuilding themselves, yes? They need secondary scoring, not another defenseman. I do not think Colorado will make this trade.

2.) 19 May 2019 09:44:51
zamboni, martinez is LHD.



18 May 2019 20:06:09
to Toronto
Spurgeon (1.5M retained)

to Minnesota
1st 2020

Minnesota is in cap hell and also are not very good, nor do they have a very deep prospect pool so although spurgeon is on a reasonable contract it might be worth it to use him to bring in some good assets. Zaitsev is not very good but Toronto losing his contract is something the Leafs very much want so they would likely pay a lot to do it. Honestly I think the leafs might have to add even more to make it work but Liljegren is very good and could transform the team. I think retained salary is another way to make it worthwhile for Toronto.

1.) 18 May 2019 20:19:06
Leafs 100% take this if I were their GM. Liljgren might have more value then spurgen to Dubas but idk.

2.) 18 May 2019 20:37:53
Spurgeon is not what that much. Take out the 1st round pick and maybe a 6th round.

3.) 18 May 2019 20:45:26
Spurgeon is good. And even if you think he isn’t worth that, minny retaining 1.5 mill AND taking on Zaitsev probably makes up the difference. It’s mentioned that Minny doesn’t have cap space which makes it harder for me to make sense of this because they don’t have the space to retain and absorb a bad contract.

4.) 19 May 2019 00:37:49
I do not think Toronto would make this trade. It is not such a very good trade for them to lose so much players for only one year of Spurgeon. Is Spurgeon so much better than Muzzin? I do not think so.

to NY Islanders

to Toronto
Leddy (2 mil retained)

Brown will see an increased role in New York and a chance to shine on a significantly less offensively deep team, and Toronto gets a good defenseman. Salary retention helps Toronto pull off this deal as without it Leddy is worth too little due to his cap (5.5) and term.

1.) 15 May 2019 19:41:32
I can't see the Islanders being interested in this at all.

2.) 15 May 2019 20:17:59
NYI laugh. Not a chance.

3.) 15 May 2019 20:24:13
Lol what no from Islanders.

4.) 15 May 2019 21:05:30
leddy is good.

5.) 16 May 2019 01:16:51
Islanders don't even consider this. Even without retention its a definite no.

6.) 16 May 2019 03:32:20
Yup, leddy at 5.5mil is a steal. If nyi retain money, Toronto ++. One being a 1st round pick and another piece cause itd be a late first. It's not like brown is a star in the waiting.

7.) 17 May 2019 05:03:11
Leddy is good player, yes, but he is not so very good. He was -42 last year. And now he is play for Trotz, he will not get so many points this year. Toronto must needs still add. Brown is just not so good to get Leddy. But is small add, not big.

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.

this is the right kind of move for the senators but they probably could get an extra mid round pick or two (or just remove the 3rd fron their side)

both assets from NY are worse than either from MTL so I don't think the canadiens would be wise to do this.

I don't think the jets are trying to get rid of their good contracts-- those are the ones they probably would like to hold on to the most.

toronto probably needs to add. Backlund isn't that much worse than Kadri and Marleau is washed compared to Neal, who probably just had an off year.
