Montreal and Edmonton deal

Habs send Hudon, Lindgren and 2nd

Oilers send Pulllyourweiner.. whatever his name is??

sosahabs24

1.) 23 Jul 2019 18:12:07
Why do the Oilers need Lindgren?
For the fourth time, Oilers do NOT NEED DEPTH GOALIES. WE HAVE PLENTY.


2.) 23 Jul 2019 20:47:00
They also have too many depth forwards.


3.) 24 Jul 2019 00:03:11
TyBa4? One more time please?


4.) 24 Jul 2019 02:50:55
Sure Soso, just for you because you asked nicely.

Lol. Thanks buddy.


 

 

21 May 2018 22:18:57
Probably way off.. and of course I want to see him on my Habs.. but what about a Buffalo and NYI blockbuster...
Tavares on a sign and trade plus a small add due to age difference.
For Jack Eichel.
.

I'm not a huge Eichel fan due to his personality..I think his ego may be to much to have someone who is coming in the league with even more hype than he did.. Dahlin..
Buffalo gets a strong leader in Tavares..reunited with Okposo.. NYI still gets to have a Star center..

sosahabs24

1.) 22 May 2018 01:48:53
Islanders won’t be adding anything extra.


2.) 22 May 2018 03:08:38
No way buffalo touches this Eichel is 20 and is almost as good as Tavares. I’d trade Austin Mathews for Jack Eichel as a leafs fan. And I wouldn’t trade Mathews for Barzel and a player you could get for free in Free agency. In two seasons Eichel will out produce Tavares career highs I’m calling it right now. With that being said if I were buffalo I’d trade O’rielly and sign Tavares to be the 2 c.


3.) 23 May 2018 16:37:28
I wouldn’t trade Matthews for Eichel first off. Secondly, buffalos ownership has committed to Eichel with that massive contract and has apparently allowed him atleast some input on firing and hiring or coaches and gm lol they don’t do that and then trade him 10 months later.


 

 

17 Jan 2018 04:51:28
If I'm Garth Snow, does the emergence of Barzal change my way of thinking????
I have been obvious about my desire for the Habs to land Tavares.. ya it's still a crap shoot... however... if I am Snow.,, I build around Barzal.. I don't let Tavares get to July 1st, but trade him for top dollar.. yes !! I want my Habs to get him , however.,I have 2 trades.. who ya take.
Vancouver
Horvat
Joulevvi
1ST
FOR Tavares

Montreal
Galchenyuk
Lindgren
Juulsen
2nd 18,× 2(both)
1st 2019

These deals are both on the contingent that he signs 8x11 at 88 once he is traded.

sosahabs24

1.) 17 Jan 2018 06:08:49
I take Horvat, Joulevi, Van 2018 1st over
Galchenyuk, Lindgren, Juulsen, two 2018 2nds, 2019 1st.


2.) 17 Jan 2018 06:11:16
Horvat is the most proven of all this. I think Juolevi has more value than pretty well all the Montreal pieces. And that Van forst this year should be pretty good.

Make he Montreal 1st 2018 not 2019 and it changes it a bit. It still prefer Van package over Montreals.
Mainly becaUs Horvat is proven and the other two pieces are more potential than any of MTLs.


3.) 17 Jan 2018 07:29:26
Uhhhh no you definitely don’t build around barzal you keep Tavares who is a top 10 player in the world lol. I see your reasoning but no way, I really do think he will resign in New York and imo neither of these trades are enough to get him (im talking value wise not as he’s a UFA) .


4.) 17 Jan 2018 08:09:31
Good points both Edmonton Boyz.

McJesus. yes Tavares is top 10, however, resign him for 8 years, puts him at what? 35? Or Barzal, focus on him, Bellows. ext. In 8 years both are in middle of Prime. I get what your saying

Wouldn't surprise me however, at end if career. m Barzal, more points than John Tavares
I really like Tavares, however, I often wonder, is he a Superstar. or Really good player. there is a diffdefence.


5.) 17 Jan 2018 14:02:55
I think Mtl shouldn’t sign Tavares
We already have bad contracts

Not to mention that 80 million goalie.


6.) 17 Jan 2018 15:12:37
I would say having that 80 million dollar goalie is a good reason to get an 80 million dollar centreman to go with your 80million dollar defensman because they are so committed now, after those moves and trading sergachev, deciding to go another direction now will set any rebuild back many years before it even begins.


7.) 17 Jan 2018 16:19:33
Too much for a rental because Tavares would never re-sign in Van.

Montreal would be better off to just snag him at UFA time w/ o losing assets.


8.) 17 Jan 2018 17:54:40
I think one of the reasons Tavares might stay in NYI is the emergence of Barzel. Not saying it's the only reason, but it's one of many and it does help a little.


9.) 17 Jan 2018 18:20:36
Tavares is a superstar now, and you don’t trade those players. Barzal emerged as a very fun player to watch this year but tbh he had to play two extra years in junior! He wasn’t projected to be this good but unreal player for islanders now his skating is phenomenal but you still don’t trade Tavares. You keep him and you have him, Barzal, bellows, and all those other guys who will come up.


10.) 17 Jan 2018 22:49:03
I agree you try to keep Tavares if you can, and as much as he is saying the right things about wanting to stay, he isn’t holding any talks. As a management team you want to show patience with him and respect him by at the same time the deadline is coming and if he isn’t going to stay, you have to make a plan. You can’t have the best player your team has seen in decades walk for nothing.

!Habs aquire Cracknell from NYR for Holland.

Huh?? Anyone else have any idea why this was made.. Bergevin must be bored?? Or is it jus so he can say he did something.?

sosahabs24

1.) 01 Dec 2017 03:44:24
I don't like this. Holland is a pretty good depth forward. Cracknell is not.


2.) 01 Dec 2017 04:58:29
A little of both? Trying to make it look like he's trying.


3.) 01 Dec 2017 06:11:42
I’m surprised Holland wasn’t on the starting roster. I thought he was pretty good in Toronto.


4.) 01 Dec 2017 13:52:37
Holland was signed for 2 years next year being a one way contract. i guess they couldn't see a situation where he would be making the starting lineup this year or next year so they traded him for a guy who brings about the same value to laval and is a ufa at years end that they don't even have to try and find a place for next season. Not hard to figure out guys.


5.) 01 Dec 2017 14:10:45
Apparently holland ask for a trade when he saw Daniel carr + byron Froese being call to play for the big team and not him.


 

 

19 Jun 2017 20:01:17
VAN
send Tanev and Virtanen
BUFFALO
send Kane and Beaulieu.

sosahabs24

1.) 19 Jun 2017 21:38:06
I think buffalo passes on this one. If virtanen was more ready I think it could work.


2.) 21 Jun 2017 01:54:46
No way from Van. I wouldn't trade Tanev for Kane and Virtanen for Beaulieu.

Just a thought ,, everyone will say I'm being biased,, however, I will base this on his Nashville days, cause at the time, he was my fav non Habs player, along with Crosby ( now its McDavid and Crosby)

Has Shea Webers career been overshadowed by others . When he was in Nashville, I thought he was the perfect Dman .. for that era.. Great D, good offensive , Strong , tough...can fight when needed , and a really good leader... His best years were when Lidstrom was still winning his multiple trophies, as well as others.. however, not the Montreal Canadiens version of Weber( although I think he's still pretty good.) But the Nashville version.. could he be the best Dman to never win a Norris??
If not, who are some other names out there??? Off the top of my head can't remember if Steven's ever won one.?

sosahabs24

1.) 21 Aug 2019 17:09:08
Damn, I never even knew he never won a Norris.
Guy deserved it when he was in his prime.


2.) 21 Aug 2019 17:28:13
Younger and fit in more with the game a bunch of years ago when he was at his best in Nashville? Now He’s gotten a bit older and slower while at the same time the entire game has gotten faster? My initial thought. Now I would consider him a very solid stay at home D man maybe, With less offensive upside? He sure was the total package a bunch of years ago in Nashville tho.


3.) 21 Aug 2019 17:44:58
He was one of my favourites too Sosa. I was so happy with that trade!
He's not what he used to be or more so the game has changed quite a bit in the last few years. I still think he is a great player but the game was tailored a bit more towards him when he played for Nashville. He was definitely Norris worthy and i didn't realize he never won it.
Stevens never won either and i think that is a hard one to swallow too. Also caught up in the Lindstrom era.


4.) 21 Aug 2019 19:11:39
I don't see a big difference in him to be honest his points are down slightly due to a horrendous power play and he doesn't have an all star D partner now. Other then that things look pretty much the same.


5.) 21 Aug 2019 19:19:23
Yupp, that's what I meant, back in his Nashville days. the way the game was.
Maybe now he wouldn't be as dominant in his prime due to the speed, but I don't know., can't really remember speed being a problem for him in his mid 20's. then again. game wasnt as fast.
Yes, he was victim of the Lidstrom era for the Norris, once Lidstrom retired, well then he was kind of losing a step and the younger guys like Karlsson and Doughty took over.
To bad.
Can you guys think of other players, who never won a major award, which is kind of a shock.?


6.) 21 Aug 2019 19:52:44
@sosa
Just from the top of my head, Cam Talbot.
I’m fine if you say he shouldn’t have won the Verona in 16-17, but he 1000% should have been a finalist.

73GP 2.39GAA .919 save %. Took the Oilers to the playoffs for the first time in more than a decade, and took them all the way to the second round.
Talbot played in 89% of all of the team’s games that season and posted those numbers while doing so, is incredible.

And he wasn’t even a finalist.

I’m an Oilers fan, so that is what comes to find first without doing any research.


 

 

14 Aug 2019 11:27:04
This isn't to bash Leafs or Mathews so much. just a convo. relax, criticize me, whatever.. well maybe it Is a lil Bashing lol


Did the Leafs and Mathews totally screw up the RFA for the league?
I say he may have a higher ceiling than some of the RFA, however,, some have accomplished more..or.. I guess have been healthy, or Was it Buffalo and Eichel? Now that I'm writing this. maybe I think he's to blame.

Ya all know me.. so take this with a grain of salt.. Damn Yankees!

sosahabs24

1.) 14 Aug 2019 14:00:41
Like somebody said before, the Leafs or Matthews didn't ruin anything. If anybody ''ruined'' something, that would be the Leafs media with over-valuing their players.

And the way sport leagues are moving, everybody is asking for more and more.
For example Cowboy fans over-valuing Dak and him asking for 40 million per year. Good players need to get paid.


2.) 14 Aug 2019 15:07:21
LOL!
It's hard to say - Eichel made a difference to the market but he means a lot to his team and i think is over market value but not terrible. Matthews follows suit, but would have been better if he was closer to 10M IMO.
I would hope the market for a young guy should be what Aho got. Good money on a 5 year deal which puts him to UFA and that is a proper sample size to offer big money. Someone streaky like Laine should be looking for something similar and cash in big if he can prove to be more consistent.


3.) 14 Aug 2019 15:36:16
I think the RFA madness started with Draisaitl's contract, which was crazy when he signed it, followed by Eichels over payment. Now every RFA is expecting to get stupid contracts at 22 or 23 which hurts teams as they can't sign all their good young players. Its sad when a 60 point player signs for $8 mil per and we think its a good contract. Now Marner who should get $11+ and it will be seen as a bargain in a couple of years.


4.) 14 Aug 2019 15:51:23
I’d argue McDavid set the market for them. The three of them are hyped up to be “generational”, with McDavid being a tier or 10 above them. So if McDavid signed for 11ish they would’ve probably had to sign for 9ish.


5.) 14 Aug 2019 22:08:41
I personally think it’s all the young players in every sport. I agree with some of what everyone on here said. McDavid set the bar being the best of the best. The rest of the players mentioned think they deserve close to that and know somebody will pay it. I disagree with Island jet on his opinion that “we” think a 60 point player at $8 million is a good contract. Nylander was a 60 point player when he signed at $6.9, do “we” still think he’s on a good contract? (I know 2 jets fans that think otherwise) I do agree that some of these contracts will be seen as a bargain in a couple years, Draisaitl is a good example of that. Vbisclueless was on the money the other day. Most people on this site judge a player or contract by the team they play for, or the country they’re from. I hope it’s ok that I shared my thoughts yupp. It’s just my opinion, no feelings involved.


6.) 14 Aug 2019 22:58:32
Lol 10 tiers. They’re PPG players you’re trying to say McDavid is 10x better then a PPG player? I doubt McDavid ever cracks 300 points in a season let alone 800 in a season. Assuming by 10 tiers you mean he produces 10x as much points as that player.


7.) 15 Aug 2019 01:18:56
Lol thanks for showing your work VB, A+.


8.) 15 Aug 2019 06:36:23
Yeah sure VB, since "tier" generally means doubling the production. I really hope you're just acting stupid.
McDavid is a tier above players like Tavares, Stamkos, Seguin, Eichel, Scheifele. to name some other elite centers that are not generational players, tho. Does that mean McDavid gets 180 while those guys get 90? Surprisingly, it doesn't.


9.) 15 Aug 2019 14:50:35
Obviously it Dosent mean doubling production but saying McDavid is 10 tiers above is non sense.


10.) 15 Aug 2019 15:54:04
I didn’t think I’d need to explain this but, it was a joke.


11.) 15 Aug 2019 18:32:10
Right now Vb is googling the word “joke. ”.


12.) 15 Aug 2019 19:19:51
Guys, over exaggeration hasn't reached the east coast yet. Let's give him a break.


13.) 15 Aug 2019 21:16:55
Over exaggeration is all used up in Alberta before it gets to the east coast.


14.) 16 Aug 2019 02:51:26
Doesn’t seem like it, Habs fans are notorious for over-valuing their crappy players.


15.) 16 Aug 2019 07:22:28
Lol not like you literally said just that VB, you're such a joke.


16.) 16 Aug 2019 15:21:12
I think a Dumbas holding out with Nylander, overpaying him and then giving into Mathews wanting shorter term deal to be UFA sooner will be big reasons leading to a a possible lockout. Now all these young stars want shorter term deals and overpayments while before that most GMs were locking up their stars for close to if not max 8 years.


17.) 16 Aug 2019 16:38:20
Uhm, no Yupp. You need to review your history.

Signing a 5-year deal coming off his ELC as Matthews did was the exact same thing that Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos, Toews, Kane and many, many others did. Very few stars were getting an 8 year deal coming of an ELC. Even 3 year bridge deals were more common.


18.) 16 Aug 2019 17:37:55
But not for $11.5M after not cracking 70 points.
Ow Marner wants a $10M deal for 3 years. Or more for 5 years. It’s a big part changing things right now. Those guys were not severely overpaid coking right off their ELC.


19.) 16 Aug 2019 17:40:21
And I know that history just fine. But I’m more talking about the changing of ways right now in the present. It’s changing and it’s creating these players holding out to get overpaid like we seen with Nylander and now Marner wants to be overpaid and he wants the shorter term. Everyone is waiting on a Marner because Dumbas have into shorter term and overpayments.


20.) 16 Aug 2019 19:56:15
% of Cap on 5-year deal following ELC expiry:

Toews: 11.1%
Crosby: 17.3%
Matthews: 14.6%
Malkin 15.3%
Stamkos: 11.7%

Matthews is in the same ball park as other star centermen coming off their ELC.

Maybe brush up on some math as well as the history?

And NHL stars would be wise to want short term contracts right now with Seattle expansion and TV rights up for grabs in the next few years. They can hit paydirt again when the cap goes up. You think agents don't want the same?


21.) 17 Aug 2019 01:54:05
So things are different with the Seattle draft and tv rights up for grabs? Oh and they want to hit pay fort again? Which is what I’m saying. Things are different now. Things are changing. Mathews shorter term deal for such a “superstar” is changing things. At least Chia was able to sign Mcdavid and Drai to 8 year deals. Eichel too.
After Mathews got his now all these guys want them.
I don’t blame them at all. But things are changing. You can’t deny that.


22.) 17 Aug 2019 05:33:15
At least someone is still praising Chia, lol. What a sad kid looking to blame the leafs for his problems. 😂.


23.) 17 Aug 2019 11:28:29
Lmao. What? What problems. He signed our superstars to long term good deals. That’s maybe the one thing I liked from Chia. I’m so efin glad he’s gone, don’t think I’m praising him. And you’re the one with the problems now bud 😂😂😂😂. I told you guys so long ago when you were bashing the Drai contract, kept saying just wait until Mayhew’s and Marner are up and I was s right, now you’re in the circus I was predicting.


24.) 17 Aug 2019 12:42:50
Lol when a grown man dosent understand inflation @yupp.


25.) 17 Aug 2019 16:01:12
That is pretty funny vbb’s. The contracts go up every year. I was talking about your problems yupper. The leafs financial problems are not my problems. 😂😂😂😂You’re the angry one looking for a fight with every post.


26.) 18 Aug 2019 00:48:53
Lmao. Not fighting at all. You’re feeling was just hurt, again as always. You’re just crying now.


27.) 18 Aug 2019 15:38:51
You bash the leafs with every post because your team is garbage and you need to make yourself feel better. We all know how people like you work, you’re not fooling anyone. You’re like a school yard bully that needs his a** handed to him. Try and focus on your own teams problems instead of deflecting every topic. I hope James Neal tips the scales enough to keep you in a playoff spot past November this year. Keep your head up big guy, the oilers will turn it around one day. A couple more 1st overalls should do it.


28.) 18 Aug 2019 16:00:43
Also, how is it your only response EVER is that my feeling are hurt? Do you not know how to have a normal conversation. I have some time off work and money burning a hole in my pocket. If you’d like, we can get together for a couple beers and put a face to the name.


29.) 19 Aug 2019 12:50:28
i'm happy gaudreau, monahan, lindholm, gio make under 6mil. Hate this entitled crap with a 70 point player making 11mil


30.) 19 Aug 2019 19:15:31
@Leafs17
yupp is just baiting you man. He's looking for a reaction and you're giving it to him.


31.) 20 Aug 2019 00:12:38
It never fails TyBa. But when I initially comment on smothering it isn’t to bait him, but if I comment anything on the Leafs, his feelings are hurt and I’ll hear about it. I just comment on some Habs, Jet, Blue Jacket etc post and I hear nothing. He’s so fragile about me commenting on the Leafs. It’s very very entertaining.


32.) 21 Aug 2019 17:10:46
@yupp
and his go-to nowadays is ''well you're an Oilers fan so you can't have an opinion on any other team! ''.


 

 

09 Aug 2019 22:07:31
Habby,, Turkey or any others ,, would you like to see Markov back??
1 year at 1 million.. I'd do it .

sosahabs24

1.) 10 Aug 2019 03:18:54
Would love to see him sign for a year. Or maybe give him a tryout if he is willing to take one? That way we can at least see what he has left in the tank. Really there is no risk to having him signed though.


2.) 10 Aug 2019 03:43:41
If it was my call I wouldn't even consider it. But if they did offer him a tryout contract and he came into camp and actually looked better then someone they already have and earned a spot I wouldn't really be against it. At this point I don't think it's fair to think he could actually be helpful over the course of a full season though.


3.) 10 Aug 2019 06:01:44
I think he’d still be a good addition.


4.) 10 Aug 2019 12:44:06
Why would we assume a guy who really didn't look great when he left here 2 seasons ago would somehow be good now at his age? If he came back and could hold down a job on some teams top 4 I'd be shocked and skeptical that some form of PED was being used. i mean he wasn't even good in the KHL.


5.) 12 Aug 2019 19:10:02
He didn't look that good in the KHL and i would be scared who he would be paired with. Need to be on the 3rd line with someone who has good speed and can compliment him. Not sure if I really see a fit for him though to be honest.


 

 

03 Jul 2019 08:27:44
Let's all be honest.. we all care more what Kawhi is going to do.. than all this RFA UFA stuff.

sosahabs24

1.) 03 Jul 2019 17:24:15
Well the hockey off season has been pretty boring. But I'm ok either way with kawhi if he leaves the raps will suck this year and get a top pick I think, unless they have already traded it, don't think so though and when players like gasol and Lowry come off the books they can be big free agent players again and build another contender which will be fun to watch or he stays and they are probably still a contender to make the finals which will be fun to watch too.


2.) 04 Jul 2019 12:23:37
Kawhi to the Lakers I think. They’ll have the top 3 players in the NBA debatably I mean KD, Westbrook And Harding are probably better then Kawhi but yeah.


3.) 04 Jul 2019 15:55:33
KD maybe. russ definitely not. and harden only offensively.


4.) 05 Jul 2019 00:58:23
As much as I was a bandwagon fan for the playoffs and championship, Come on and go to LAL already man! We all know you want to. If you %100 wanted to stay in Toronto it would have been announced the first opportunity. The fact he didn’t means he has a decision to make and is hesitant to break Toronto’s hearts. Just go to LAL, we won’t be mad bro. Thanks for the championship.
BUT! That said, because the entire same team is signed for one more year, mayyyyybe he signs a one year deal with Toronto and try’s to repeat? Then goes to LAL?
Kinda funny Lebron pitched him and said hey man I’ll be gone in two years then it’s your team and I’ll adjust my game and we’ll make it work. If that’s genuine, that's interesting.
But hey, just go to the Lakers man, best of luck and thank ya.


5.) 05 Jul 2019 11:25:39
Nah he's staying in Toronto.


6.) 05 Jul 2019 13:59:55
I actually think he stay and signs a 2 year then signs a super max contract with a team.


7.) 06 Jul 2019 17:03:39
Crazy. I actually thought the Clippers were our of it and had Lakers tables first possibility, Raptors then Clippers. Kinda crazy he picks the Clippers. Best of luck To him!


 

 

03 Jul 2019 08:18:38
Jus wondering, I know Habs won't get him now.. but does Aho have to sign with Carolina? At 8.4.. or can he hold out? Apparently he wanted more before. And... can another team swoop in.. and offer 9.5? Not sure all of the RFA rules, other than the compensation

sosahabs24

1.) 03 Jul 2019 17:24:42
Nope the deal is the deal.


2.) 04 Jul 2019 12:18:24
No he’s locked in to the contract he signed, just comes down to where he’ll play it out Montreal or Carolina. He asked for more but never expected it, started high for negotiations.


3.) 04 Jul 2019 12:24:59
He already signed the contract if Carolina matches they retain him with contract he signed.

I don't see the reason Habs would do this. I think Kovalchuck is jus done. he's no longer an elite player, with that being said. being average with small bursts of the old days is jus not enough. Obviously I don't know him, but seems like he has a me first attitude and with all the youngsters on that team, don't need that.

I see the concerns with Caufields size, however, with that much offensive talent, it's hard to let that go. If Habs could NOW start getting some more balance if Big and Small guys, that would help . Lots of skilled forwards on the team, just easy to push the little guys around.
I'd hate to give him up without seeing what he may be. Ehlers, is a damn good player, but if Habs are going to move some of these prospects, I'd prefer to see the D get upgraded
I think they will be ok up front, it's that D that worries me.

No way from Habs.
Ya want a deal with Laine for Drouin, a 1st and a good prospect. ok., I think Kotkaniemi is untouchable at this point.

Not bad. however, I really think the Jets need to try and figure out a way to get Risto. this is a team who could still contend, but took a kicking on the back end this off season losing the Great Trouba and Myers.

Boeser is 100% not going anywhere. think he will get around 7 to 8 a year. only reason Marner would be traded is cause they can't afford him.
