Let's see everyone rank their top 5-10 prospects. I'll start with mine:

1. Jack Hughes
2. Kaapo Kaako
3. Cale Makkar
4. Quinn Hughes
5. Bowen Byram
6. Vitali Kravstov
7. Alex Turcotte
8. Kirby Dach
9. Kiril Kaprisov
10. Filip Zadina
Honourable Mentions: Glass, Necas, Zegras, Brannstrom, Boqvist.

Agree0 Disagree3

12 Jul 2019 23:29:13
1. Kappo Kakko
2. Jack Hughes
3. Quinn Hughes
4. Noah Dobson ( No idea how you left him off your list he was the best player in the CHL last season )
5. Cale Makar
6. Vitali Kravstkov
7. Bowen Byram
8. Eric Brannstrom
9. Alex Turcotte
10. Kirby Dach
11. Ryan Pohling.

12 Jul 2019 23:59:02
I think Tolvanen should belong on that list, or at least in the honourable mentions. Had the spectacular WJ and season in the KHL, didn’t really “struggle” in the AHL but didn’t really live up to the KHL hype.
Should still be one of the best prospects in the NHL though imo.
Oettinger should also be in the honourable mentions. Spectacular NCAA career and even wore the “A” for Boston Univ.

13 Jul 2019 01:47:53
Tolavanen while did stand out on the eye test did absolutely nothing on the score sheet.

13 Jul 2019 03:27:04

That list proves you don't know hockey.
Hughes>Kakko not by a lot but definitely better. Hughes was projected to be #1 overall for like 2 years before this draft.

Noah Dobson best player in the CHL? Where did you get that? The trophy for the best CHL player during the 18-19 season was given to Alexis Lafreniere.
Dobson got 16P in 28GP for in his original team before being traded to a stacked team. Bouchard, Boqvist > Dobson, gladly will provide you the evidence but you should already know I'll prove you wrong (:
Also, how is he better than Makar or even Brannstrom?

If you check Turcotte's stats, he was never really that great. Sure, he was a PPG player but his stock only improved this year while playing with Hughes, Boldy, Caufield, Zegras, Cam York and Spencer Knight. WAYYYYY too early to label him as the 9th best prospect in the NHL when he was on a stacked team.

Also, in what world is Kirby Dach better than Zadina or Cody Glass? His ceiling isn't even as high as Tolvanen's.

Every 12 year old hockey fan needs to chill out on Poehling. He was never even a point per game player in the NCAA and wasn't even PPG in the USDP or USHL. Because he had one great game in the NHL doesn't make him the 11th best prospect in the NHL.

13 Jul 2019 05:15:05
What do you mean nothing on the score sheet? 19G for 36P in 47 KHL games.
15G and 35P I’m 58 AHL games this season. Keep in mind the AHL team was absolute garbage and had very little offensive talent. Their main scorer had 47P in 73GP.

Holy crap Vb, I’m running out of words to express your lack of hockey knowledge.

13 Jul 2019 13:22:01
In the world Junior he did nothing on the score sheet you think I watch KHL games?

Anyway I know my friends played against Dobson this year and they all said the same thing “ Most dominate player in the QMJHL hands down. ” That being said they never played against Maxime Comtouis. Alex Lafranier is obviously better for his age he is in no way as dominant as Dobson.

As for the Acadi Bathurst Titan 2 players got cut from my midget AAA team last year and made their roster. They were the worst team in the history of the CHL Dobson litterly had to skate end to end and not pass the puck to anyone and he did it half of the time just take a look at the roster. Andersson MacDonald is good but he wasn’t traded there until Dobson left.

Dobson won the Memorial cup 2 years in a row and was the best player on his team each year.

13 Jul 2019 13:19:33
Also Kappo Kakko has the advantage of playing against men and out producing the likes of Liane and Barkov. He also led a finish team with not one notable player to beat a Powerhouse Russian team and Canada. Jack Hughes will not have as good as an career as Kakko imo.

13 Jul 2019 20:51:40
You're so clueless VB, i'm actually getting second hand embarrassment from you.

1. Tolvanen did not ''do nothing'' he got 4P in 7GP at the WJC.
2. You do not need to watch KHL games to google his KHL statistics.
3. Ahhh, this finally makes sense. You trust a teenager's analysis over professional scouts and GMs. Because your teenager friend said something good about him, doesn't mean that it is true. Also, kind of adorable how you back tracked from ''most dominant player in the CHL'' to saying ''My friend said he is the most dominant player in the QMJHL''
4. They were not the worst team in CHL history. In 1996 London Knights went 3-60-3, 1999 Mississauga Ice Dogs finished with a 4-61-3 record.
5. Because somebody won the memorial cup, doesn't mean they were the most dominant player in the CHL. The worst player on the team can win the memorial cup. That stat means nothing.
6. Kakko is just your opinion so that's fine as long as you don't word it as it's a fact.
(! ) Evan Bouchard had 4G 17A 21P in 11 games in the most difficult CHL league. Dobson got 29P in 20GP in easiest to score CHL league.

13 Jul 2019 23:00:54
Well considering both of the teams to advance to the memorial cup finals were QMJHL teams I’m pretty sure the QMJHL was the best. Historically the OHL is the best league followed by QMJHL and WHL.

4 points in 7 games by a 20 year old with professional experience playing with little kids. He should’ve led the whole tournament in points with his hype and being one of the oldest there. It was an extremely disappointing tournament for him and if you actually watch which I doubt you did you could hear the commentators actually ripping him apart saying how disappointing he has been. He was demoted to the 4th line in the gold medal game. THE 4th LINE.

I’ll take a player who actually played against Dobson opinion over a scout imo and I’m sure all scouts would agree with Dobson being a top 3 dman Maybe he’d be 3rd behind the two Colorado guys just wait until the top 100 Prospects come out. I also watched him multiple times and probably played against him when I was younger.

Also the QMJHL Dosent play against OHL And WHL teams. Only in the Memorial cup they do so obviously he couldn’t have played against those teams.

10 Jul 2019 23:29:06
What do you guys think of the flames prospects Parsons & Wolf? i'm just seeing where Parsons value sits and Wolfs potential lays.

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Jul 2019 00:22:26
I’m not going to pretend to know who either of those guys are.

11 Jul 2019 01:50:17
You should.
Parsons was the 2nd best goalie in his draft class and statistically, Wolf is the best goalie in the CHL.
Parsons struggled in the AHL this season but that shouldn’t cause concern as he’s a 21 year old goalie.
Parsons’ potential is a really good backup/ fringe starter imo.
Wolf’s potential and skill is hard to figure out as he was on one of the best teams in the entire CHL and his stats got inflated.

11 Jul 2019 02:36:33
Haven’t heard of them since their OHL days I guess that means not to much?

11 Jul 2019 02:49:25
Ty Parons (Former London Knights goalie and Memorial Cup Winner)

Dustin Wolf (Everett Silvertips goalie)

11 Jul 2019 03:36:38
Imo if Dustin wolf was 6 foot 2 he would have went somewhere in the first 3 rounds. He's a good goalie just small. Also his stats were magnified by playing on a real good defensive team. Tyler parsons is still the better bet to be an nhl goalie he didn't look overly impressive this year but I think after another couple years in Ahl he will be ready to at least assume the back up duties for the flames.

11 Jul 2019 06:48:04
This is what I love about this site. I don’t know a lot about the young kids and don’t have the time to follow them. You guys seem to have a good judgement on them, unless they put on a jersey you don’t like, lol.

11 Jul 2019 07:29:51
Hey I like Rasmus sandin and mikko kokkenen from the leafs prospect pool lol.

11 Jul 2019 07:29:56
Yeah, this site is awesome. For the most part the users are really intelligent and aware of players and their values. Surprisingly hard to find.

11 Jul 2019 07:34:14
To add, I just saw an Oilers fan say that a Necas for Puljujarvi would be a fair deal and my heart almost exploded with disappointment.

11 Jul 2019 16:45:43
I don’t even know who Kokkenen is habby. I watch every nhl game I can but I don’t have a lot of time to follow others.

11 Jul 2019 18:24:41
He was the leafs 3rd round pick this year they got him at 84th I think. which was real good value I had him in my top 45.

11 Jul 2019 20:57:33
Good to know. I’ll have to look into him.

09 Jul 2019 01:36:58
When you take in account contracts and salary cap is there any player in the league who is actually worth 4 1st round picks?

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Jul 2019 05:51:35
I’d make the argument for McDavid even at that cap hit. Crosby cap hit is low enough at 8.7 that even paying that for the last half of his contract I don’t think would be terrible.

09 Jul 2019 07:37:51
Paul George lol.

09 Jul 2019 08:29:50
Always depends on which pick numbers it is, obviously. But if you assume it's a contending team and the picks are all between 20th and 31st overall, there's actually easily a double digit number of players that are worth that. Easily.

09 Jul 2019 15:21:50
Alex Lafranier I’d say next Season at the draft he’d be worth it to a a fringe playoff team with good prospect pool like the Avalanche and Maybe the home town Canadians although they should uses a few 1sts on defence.

09 Jul 2019 15:55:31
If I'm MTL I offer to wichever team has the first overall pick

MTL:Phoeling, Brooks, Suzuki, Romanov

? :1 overall (Lafrenière.

09 Jul 2019 16:58:05
I could lean toward a leffreniere type I guess. Considering the 3 years of entry level that follows. McDavid I'm not so sure on as he's on Edmonton now and there picks have been pretty high with him. Mackinnon or Jones would be good candidates but there current contracts are starting to get short. Kucherov would be close to worth it maybe.

09 Jul 2019 17:32:00
@detroitmantha only one of those players were a Montreal first pick. Caufield. Kotkaniemi poehling and sergachev are the last 4 at an average of 13th overall I'm not sure if there is anyone in the league I'd trade thiose 4 players for right now if I have to pay a 10 mil plus per contract for that player as well.

09 Jul 2019 22:40:44
I know that Habby, I just made an offer for Lafrenière.

09 Jul 2019 23:24:03
Ok then I probably wouldn’t give that up for him either.

09 Jul 2019 23:39:46
Doesn't apply to the NHL. The value of first round picks in the NHL is very different to the ones in the NBA.
I don't really follow the NBA but i'm pretty sure guys that are selected after around the 25th overall are expected to be bench players.
Lakers will be good with AD and Lebron so those picks will probably be very late.

10 Jul 2019 00:06:16
Paul Goege went to the Clippers not the Lakers.

10 Jul 2019 00:15:54
Yeah but all of the Lakers picks went to New Orleans for AD.

10 Jul 2019 19:41:53
Yeah, not to mention in the NHL there are 7 rounds and in the NBA there’s only two.
Every league is different with its draft picks so it’s really hard to translate that to a different league.
For example, in the NFL players who are drafted from rounds 1-4 are expected to start in their rookie season. (Obviously not all of them, but most)
In the NHL players need extra years to develop even if they’re like the third overall pick.
In the NBA you’re just basically filling up your bench for cheap.

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.

Agree0 Disagree1

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

Agree0 Disagree0

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

07 Jul 2019 17:33:08
Unless the arbitrator rules that trouba has to play this year for a sandwich the rangers are going to have to clear some cap space.

Agree2 Disagree4

07 Jul 2019 17:42:28
For a sandwich? What are you talking about? It says that the Rangers have 8m in salary cap space. That’s more than enough for Trouba.

07 Jul 2019 19:21:54
They have more then trouba to sign though bud might help to do a little more research.

07 Jul 2019 22:20:02
Oh yeah? Like who? Buchnevich? DeAngelo?
A 30 point forward and a 30 point defenceman are not not more important than Trouba.

Trouba will get signed to a contract that he likes, everybody else is second priority. Definitely not “a sandwich”. You really thinking New York Rangers care about signing Buch or DeAngelo over a defenceman that they traded for?

might help to gain a little common sense “bud”.

08 Jul 2019 01:08:20
Ok I wouldn't be too concerned about deangelo but buchnevich would have flirted with 30 goals this year had he not missed almost 20 games I'm not sure how they do things in Tampa but I know for a fact most teams like to keep those guys around so let's just say he signs on the low end for 3 mil they also have Brendan Lemieux who I feel they might want to keep as well so say 4 mil for the two. That leaves 4 mil for trouba you think he's going to like that deal? And this leads us back to my original post. they are going to have to make room., bud.

08 Jul 2019 01:22:54
And I never once said they were not going to sign trouba I mean obviously he is the top priority I was more just tryin to see if anyone had an opinion on who they might move to make room. The who's better marner or kucherov argument is getting pretty played out. Something new which could actually create an unbiased thread might be nice for a change. I don't think there is any rangers fans here so it might have a chance.

08 Jul 2019 08:34:31
Maybe they move Namestnikov.

08 Jul 2019 14:37:16
@ebs I could see that. possibly even kreider I wonder what they would throw in as a sweetener for someone to take mark stall.

09 Jul 2019 22:40:11
Why is Tampa part of the discussion? TyBa is an Oilers fan.

09 Jul 2019 23:26:07
Yeah your right vbbb well the oilers would probably let Buchnevich walk if they had him so I guess he had me there lol.

06 Jul 2019 18:13:54
{note to Ed: If this post does not comply with rules or it seems like it will not yield a good result, please do not post}

Which teams fans (on this site or just in general) overvalues their players the most? Which people (on this site) do you think shows the most bias towards their team, and which people (on this site) do you think have post the most fair trades?

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Jul 2019 20:22:55
Every fan on here overvalues their own players cause it's human nature to do so.

06 Jul 2019 20:26:25
Yah every person in the world has some bias that can’t be measured.

06 Jul 2019 20:59:11
I really over valued what Trouba could get in a trade but I don't think anyone would have predicted such a poor return the Jets received for him from the Rangers.

06 Jul 2019 23:52:00
Trouba over valuing himself is probably the cause of that low return.

07 Jul 2019 06:47:48
Islandjet and Redwing easily

07 Jul 2019 08:07:16
VB def has the worst takes on everything
And Pinball is one of the biggest blind homers.

07 Jul 2019 15:00:42
On what Marner? Please tell me how the 22 year old superstar can’t be as good as Kucherov? Why should the leafs trade a player with such high potential? Your Tampa bay bias is strong please make a fair value trade for Kucherov and Marner and compare them to see value differential in your mind.

07 Jul 2019 17:40:10
Oh VB that’s easy. He actually seems to be serious about what he’s saying. I’d say that memarcus account or whatever that overvalues every Jets player but it seems he’s trolling.

Everybody is biased towards their team though.

07 Jul 2019 18:04:56
Kucherov >> Marner.
Marner has been carried for his entire career. During his OHL career he was on the strongest team in the CHL. His forward teammates included Domi, Dvorak and McCarron, Tkachuk, Max Jones (1st,2nd,1st,1st,1st round picks) not to mention Juolevi on defence.
When he joined the leafs he was also carried by Matthews, Nylander, Tavares etc.

Don’t get me wrong, Marner is a really excellent player but when you put him on a struggling team with little offensive help, is it reasonable to even expect him to be PPG? If you put him on the Senators what will be his realistic stats?
15 goals 55-60 assists?

During Kucherov’s junior career he was on a team who struggled. Their best player (other than Kucherov) was Andrighetto who was drafted in the third round and none of their goalies had a save % above .900 .

Also basically carried the 2016-17 Lightning by himself. He had 85 points and the next forward with the most points had 53. Very little help from his forwards.

07 Jul 2019 19:36:12
How can one lead a team in Points and be carry’d? Marner can do everything he’s one of the better PKers in the whole NHL no he’s not known to be a sniper but he’s debatably the most creative player in the game. Only time will tell how many points he’ll put up in about 4 years when he actually enters his prime.

07 Jul 2019 19:42:16
Ohh and on Ottawa he’d probably be on a line with Tkachuk and Pageau. He’d probably go 30G 40A 70P last season Marner needs a scorer on his line to feed to be the the best he can be no one in Ottawa can do that so he’d most likely shoot MUCH more resulting in more goals. Kucherov would probably go 40G 40A 80P in Ottawa don’t think Pageau or Tkachuk would compliment either player that much at the the NHL level maybe Tkachuk if the Center was a goal scorer.

07 Jul 2019 19:55:46
Here we go with the Kucherov/ Marner discussion again. They’re both really good players, can everyone just shut the f up already?

07 Jul 2019 22:24:13
Lol VB did you just say yourself that Marner needs a scorer on his line to get assists and points?

Argument is over buddy.
Point is Marner can’t carry the team, Kucherov can. There are elite players and players that can carry an entire franchise on their back.

So what you’re saying is that Marner carried Auston Matthews or John Tavares since Marner lead the team in points? Every time you make a counter argument it’s one step forward two steps back.

07 Jul 2019 22:28:25
Also, Marner can do everything and one of the better PKs in the whole league? That’s hilarious. He wasn’t even in the top 30 in the Selke Trophy. Players like Cirelli and Brandon Tanev were ahead of him.

08 Jul 2019 10:33:57
Okay, here's a few things:

While I agree with TyBa4 saying that Kucherov is a bit better than Marner etc. I don't think it's fair to say that Marner got carried. At least not last season. He is the Leafs best player, period. He's better than Tavares and easily better than Matthews.
This whole "carrying" thing is stupid anyways. No one is carrying anyone. It's just good players playing hockey together, regardless whether that's Kuch and Point, Marner and JT or McDavid and Draisaitl. All of those 6 guys mentioned are elite, elite players.

The point is, don't say Marner is better than Kucherov before he gets 130 points, too, alright?

And yes, Marner deserves credit for his defensive play and also PK work. "One of the best PKers" in the league might be a stretch but he's def pretty good at it.

Oh and while we're at it. Someone please actually watch Cirelli play. If it wasn't for him having no name value at all, he shoulda easily been a top 10 Selke finish. Easily.

08 Jul 2019 13:08:45
@The_Triplets I agree with everything you've said but Mathews>>Tavares. Mathews elevated his game in the playoffs and was the Leafs best player offensively easily. Mathews does it by himself on his line while Tavares has Marner to inflate his stats. After Mathews has a healthy season you’ll agree but then again you must admit you have hate towards Mathews.

08 Jul 2019 14:29:14
Draisaitl basically took your side, why’re you still arguing?

08 Jul 2019 15:46:06
Well I don’t understand how all the leafs players are so overrated Marner litterly carried the team on his back with out him the leafs would be a bottom 5 team running for Lafranier.

09 Jul 2019 08:32:30
See VB, those stupid takes is why no one likes you or thinks you're credible with anything you say.

And no, I don't have hate towards Matthews, why would I? Not his fault, TOR media and fans treat him like he is >= McDavid, which he very clearly isn't.

04 Jul 2019 18:14:37
With these contracts the leafs are giving out , i'm starting to think that nylander might be getting shipped out in the next few days

Agree2 Disagree0

05 Jul 2019 00:52:59
Alright, can you finish your thoughts and predict where and for what he’ll go for?

05 Jul 2019 05:34:46
I don’t think he’s getting shipped out but I’d be ok with it. Is there a possible deal around Bennett who’s unsigned? I’d love him on the leafs and Calgary has Tkachuk and others that play a physical game. I’m sure Nylander will be a 60 point player for whoever he plays with. Bennett is nowhere near that but brings a lot more heart than Nylander.

Nylander +? for Bennett and Brodie.

05 Jul 2019 11:31:30
Nylander will not start the season in Toronto as confirmed by Kyle Dubas.

05 Jul 2019 12:23:00
He said this Mantha?

05 Jul 2019 14:54:40
Dubas listed many times that Nylander is untouchable he’d be an idiot to trade Nylander coming off a bad season Nylander has 90 point potential and will get there if glued to Mathews next year. Nylander is a god in Dubas’s mind.

Detroit Mantha is just talking out of his A** obviously no GM would come out and say “ X player will not start the season in our organization we are trying to trade him”.

It’s much more likely that Marner is traded then Nylander because of Nylanders current low value and if you think the leafs Consider Bennet And Bodie for him you’re crazy maybe Bennet And Rasmus Andersson.

05 Jul 2019 15:52:55
@yupp i'm not entirely sure where he would go or who he'd get traded for. Also to VB i think you underestimate nylanders current value, teams know he had a down year but most players do at some point or another. i guarantee they could get full value for him right now and i also think you're wrong about this 90 point potential of his. i'd rather keep the guy that actually got 90 points this year.

05 Jul 2019 16:01:51
if i had to guess though it'd be to carolina

Tor- Nylander, ceci, 2020 6th round pick

Car- Pesce, martinook, 2020 3rd round pick.

05 Jul 2019 16:32:27
I’d probably do the Pesce Trade honestly.

05 Jul 2019 18:47:54
Nylander dosnt get Peace, he might get a young RHD like Noah Juulsen but that's about it. That contract is 2 million too much.

05 Jul 2019 18:55:58
If he continues to struggle than yes Nylander is paid too much. If he is a 60pt man which he has shown his first 2 seasons, there is nothing wrong with $7 million. Mantha and shoots have taken over where the now quiet jets boys left off. Some of you just can’t stand the fact that the leafs are no longer bottom feeders.

05 Jul 2019 20:45:27
Just ignore him he’s a Canadians fan that used DetroitMantha to cover his bias.

05 Jul 2019 23:06:40
No related to the original post but GMs have said certain players will not return i. e. Briesbois with Domingue. I don’t thinks it’s smart by any stretch, and definitely hasn’t been said about Nylander.

06 Jul 2019 00:45:17
Mantha should read “what the puck” in the Montreal Gazette. It’s a good read about the frustration building up from guys like Weber, Price and Gallagher. How they’ve actually gotten worse over the off season and Carolina should be thanking Montreal for getting Aho at such a reasonable contract. I personally think Bergevin is far from done and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he offer sheets Marner. Why not mess with a rivals salary? Anyways, I’m not a hater like Mantha and some others, I’d like to see all Canadian teams in the playoffs. I’m sure Montreal will be back in the playoffs soon but Mantha needs to look at his own team. Nylander would be one of the top wingers on Montreal for fun. Don’t be so naive to think Nylander is going to be a 40pt player. I’d still like to see a Weber ++ for Nylander trade. Weber and Reilly would be fun to watch.

06 Jul 2019 01:37:28
Yes jbs happens it a lot of times especially with ufas.

06 Jul 2019 04:38:02
Weber ++ trade? I bet you would like to see it maybe when Weber is 40.

06 Jul 2019 04:59:40
I’d do Nylander for Weber I think if Montreal had good D that’d be a fair swap.

I also think Kessel and a late 1st for Nylander would be fair.

06 Jul 2019 06:56:19
And leafs 17 nobody should actually ever read anything written by Brendan Kelly lol. I can't believe you did to be honest. he is the James tanner of Montreal media just a click bait artist.

06 Jul 2019 07:15:38
I was just going off age and the chances of Nylander being a 60 point winger. Weber is a stud and my favorite, I’ve said it before. If he’s healthy, he’s a beast.

06 Jul 2019 23:37:16
I don’t know the writer but I’m sure he’s just like Craig Button and knows nothing about anything. You should write an article about the habs, you’re by far the smartest guy around and seem to be on the same page as Bergevin every step of the way. I’m sure the vets on the team are loving the off season improvements so far.

07 Jul 2019 00:24:20
Kelly is much worse then button though.

07 Jul 2019 02:58:42
Yeah yeah leafs17 it's ok to assume that you know what the vets on the habs are thinking though right? Lol maybe they are thinking well we sure are glad bergevin didn't have to trade half our team away just to get under the cap.

07 Jul 2019 15:02:34
Well to be fair the leafs only traded 1 core piece and got 2 back.

07 Jul 2019 15:26:57
2 core pieces? Who? The guy who is going to be there for a season or less or one of the 2 guys you said sucked before they came to Toronto?

07 Jul 2019 19:44:32
I never said Kerfoot sucked? Why are you making stuff up LOL.

07 Jul 2019 20:04:52
I think he’s talking about Ceci vbb’s. Just let him have it or he will continue to ramble, even when nobody responds to him, lol.

07 Jul 2019 23:32:37
@leafs17 you can't help but respond so when everyone else gives you will still be around to talk to I'm sure lol. Your starting to sound like your old buddy biased Jim next step for you is to start making fake accounts to try and win an argument lol.

08 Jul 2019 01:10:39
"Everyone else gives up"

08 Jul 2019 01:31:05
Oh and I'm sorry vbbb maybe you didn't say that but you did say soderberg and kerfoot are trash like lucic level trash lol and it really isn't hard to find that comment if you want to go look lol.

08 Jul 2019 15:35:08
Habby do you ever think that some people just don’t want to argue for 3 days straight? I’d rather be on here talking hockey with some people that know the game, not fighting with tools and trolls. I’m not sure how I’m like Jim, other than I disagree with you a lot. I won’t make a fake account but you can stop agreeing with yourself. It’s bad enough you talk to yourself, no need to click agree too. We know there’s nobody else on this site that agrees with you.

08 Jul 2019 15:48:32
Both of those players are good? I’ve never said that. And no one is Lucic level bad.

08 Jul 2019 16:32:20
Vbb when I said it's not hard to search up where you said that I really meant it lol. if anyone is wondering they can just search the name kerfoot and you won't have to scroll down far to see the thread where you did say it. And leafs17 if you want to talk hockey by all means go ahead.

04 Jul 2019 15:52:37
Columbus or Florida could make a offer sheet to marner right? Columbus has a quite cap space and florida was after panarina nyway which is min.10m p year

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Jul 2019 17:04:36
I doubt it. Anything below 4 first round pick territory and the Leafs match. Anything above it is a pretty costly manoeuvre. Not saying he’s not worth four first rounders, but that’s a lot to think about.

Offer sheets for guys like Labanc, or Johnsson/ Kapanen (if they had not signed) seem more likely given the palatable price.

05 Jul 2019 06:18:59
I’d be surprised if Columbus doesn’t offer sheet someone after who they lost.

04 Jul 2019 15:29:24
Good time for someone to offer sheet marner maybe?

Agree2 Disagree2

04 Jul 2019 15:50:46
Definitely! Toronto doesn't deserve him.

05 Jul 2019 06:20:29
loll, explain yourself Akashi.

05 Jul 2019 13:56:04
I’d take the 4 1sts but leafs would match anything less.
