Boston Bruins Rumours
Use our rumours form to send us nhl trade rumors.
28 Jul 2016 05:33:19
Oilers: RNH + Reinhart
Wild: Dumba + Coyle + 2nd round pick
Oilers get right hand dman + 3rd line centre + 2nd Rd PK to replace oilers 2nd to Boston
Wild get their future centre man + good dman prospect.
28 Jul 2016 05:59:32
Yup do it up for Oilers.
28 Jul 2016 06:10:07
Take out the 2nd and it's closer.
28 Jul 2016 17:54:40
26 Jul 2016 03:15:20
Min: Krejci, C. Miller
Bos: Granlund, Dumba.
26 Jul 2016 14:52:25
Dear Minny. keep adding.
26 Jul 2016 16:26:33
Dear Boston we don't want anything to do with this.
25 Jul 2016 07:30:11
Like I said before, I think if Oilers can keep majority of their forwards and sign Wisniewski for a short term deal 1-2 years max, and then trade for a RHD after expansion, then that'll be the best case senario in my opinion.
Anyways here's a Yak trade lol.
Wings: Jurco + 2nd round
Reality is both these players have underperformed, especially yak, but if he is put into the Wings system I think that can turn around very quickly. Jurco also has been struggling pretty bad and I think maybe a scenery change for both players could make sense.
As Yak has more potential than Jurco, Wings also have 2 2nd round picks I believe, and that's something Chiarelli wants to get so he can give it to Boston because of the stupidest rule in the league.
I personally think this may work, but let me know what you think.
25 Jul 2016 10:38:46
I don't know why you're so thrilled about Wisniewski .
He's a 32 year old defenceman and only played 1 hockey game last season.
And only 14 the season before that.
He's actually never had a full season.
Just because he is right handed doesn't mean he fits the Oilers.
25 Jul 2016 11:19:20
My honest opinion is If I'm the Oilers i'd be thrilled to get Jurco and a 2nd, especially if Yak's supposed market price is late second-Mid third. Jurco is a puck wiz and has a lot of potential, hasn't panned out being behind some players on the winger depth chart such as Abdelkader, Tatar, Nyqvist, Larkin, Zetterberg, Mantha, Anthanasiou etc. The list goes on, he's overshadowed. Meanwhile on the Oilers he has a very respectable chance at playing any wing in the top 9, and who knows, he might make his way by Mcdavid and thrive! Sekera is also a Slovakian Native and so he should fit in nicely.
25 Jul 2016 14:28:39
send the plane.
Big yes from the oilers.
25 Jul 2016 17:45:00
Why am I thrilled about him? Maybe watch a game from when he's healthy, and he only costs money Tyson! He's smart in both ends of the ice, he quarterbacks a PP and he's got an absolute rocket of a shot. And 32 is perfect, Oilers have like what, 4 players in the lineup who are over 30? We need a veteran presence in the room and on the ice. Not only is he a RHD PP guy, but he makes a good first pass as well. Also he will make time for nurse and Reinhart to play in the minors and get their confidence up. Wisniewski only costs money, we don't need to lose any players, and he is the second option to Barrie in my opinion if we try and get one of them before the season starts. He could also be a expansion target as well. Best case scenario oilers sign him. So I don't know why you're not thrilled at all. You tell me somebody else we could get who fits everything I just said. Only his health is an issue and if he gets hurt oh well, it only costs money.
25 Jul 2016 18:09:02
Yeah I really hope that trade is realistic. Could benefit both teams pretty well. I just can see Yak excelling in the wings system.
25 Jul 2016 23:45:02
He was all that when he was younger and healthy in Columbus.
You can't sign him just because he played well 3-5 years ago.
24 Jul 2016 04:29:41
Bruins/ Blue Jackets
Krejci Morrow for Hartnell Johnson
Chara for 2nd 2017 (Bruins Stempniak trade)
Then sign Quincey 2 years at 3 millions per year.
It allows bruins cap room, fill needs in offence/ defence and makes bruins ready for expension draft.
24 Jul 2016 05:32:03
Krejci and Chara have NMC, good luck with that.
24 Jul 2016 10:59:23
Bruins have enough young D to avoid trading their 2nd best C for an average Dman and a bad contract in Hartnell.
Chara should retire a Bruin, he's a great leader and could teach a kid like Carlo a lot when he starts getting some time in the Nhl.
Quincey signing doesn't make sense even with the expansion draft in mind, rather play C. miller or let one of Carlo/ Grezlcyk/ Arnesson get the chance.
22 Jul 2016 02:19:45
CBJ: Johnson + Foligno
BOS: Krejci + Spooner
Only if players with NMC agrees to waive.
Boston gets Dman, Columbus gets centerman. Boston also gets replacement forward who is good, and so does Columbus.
Columbus saves some Cap as well which is important to them.
Boston gets: 9.9mil (approx)
Columbus gets: 7.95mil (approx)
22 Jul 2016 05:59:08
No from Boston.
22 Jul 2016 06:30:56
You think so? There's still concern over Krejci and his health I think, and he has a hefty contract.
22 Jul 2016 07:46:32
Take out Spooner and I still think CLB adds a 2nd.
23 Jul 2016 02:46:44
I would do it as a bruins fan, assuming Krejcis injurys are a concern i don't see him getting a truckload.
21 Jul 2016 16:06:41
LAK: Dustin Brown (50% Salary Retained)
BOS: 2018 5th Round Pick.
21 Jul 2016 16:29:24
Even with 50% retained, Los Angeles is still adding a ton to that disgusting contract.
21 Jul 2016 16:55:20
No from LA.
21 Jul 2016 17:09:31
If LA wanted to get rid of Brown's contract that bad, they'd rather buy him out and only have a third of his salary against the cap rather than 50% as you're proposing.
21 Jul 2016 19:27:31
Chances are Brown may be taken by Expansion draft. So as of right now I guarentee you they can't trade him away, and then they should just hope he is taken by Vegas.
21 Jul 2016 22:21:19
Why would Vagas take Brown over other cheaper young players.
21 Jul 2016 23:10:11
I don't know exactly why LA declines that trade. They get 3 million dollars off of the books for the next 6 (! ) years instead of having to pay 6 million to a declining bottom 6 player.
21 Jul 2016 23:27:57
Have you not read Titties' reply?
Maybe you haven't but here:
''If LA wanted to get rid of Brown's contract that bad, they'd rather buy him out and only have a third of his salary against the cap rather than 50% as you're proposing. ''
or in simpler words LA COULD JUST BUY HIM OUT IF THEY WANTED TO AND NOT PAY AS MUCH.
19 Jul 2016 21:17:37
Krecji Chara for Pronger Datsyuk 1st 2nd 2017
Sign Versteeg 2 years at 3 millions per year
Sign Schenn 2 years at 2 millions per year
This allows bruins to get younger and continue the rebuild. coyotes get decent vets to help develop the young guys.
19 Jul 2016 22:51:19
I don't think Arizona will do that.
19 Jul 2016 23:26:49
Finally a trade you posted that doesn't hurt the Bruins.
20 Jul 2016 00:14:25
I don't think either team does that.
20 Jul 2016 01:30:37
Krejci isn't just ''decent'' he is a really good centre.
20 Jul 2016 01:58:48
i don't think Boston will do that.
19 Jul 2016 20:45:16
Shattenkirk trades my opinion
Boston - 1st 2017, Subban, Krecji, conditional first if he resigns
St. Louis shattenkirk
STL Shattenkirk (shats>larsson)
19 Jul 2016 20:49:01
So that's why Colt55 is so .
19 Jul 2016 21:37:55
Why would Nj do that tho 😂😂.
19 Jul 2016 21:50:01
All of those are horrible is this really a post or a troll?
Stl don't have the assists to acquire Nylander that they would be willing to give up.
19 Jul 2016 22:05:11
1) Boston sends Zdeno Chara to Doug Armstrongs house to eat him for breakfast
2) Armstrong comes to NJ to pitch this trade and goes missing; found 3 days later at the bottom of the Hudson.
3) After Lou declines, he orders his mafia to take care of Armstrong; winds up on Robidas Island for the remainder of his life.
19 Jul 2016 22:14:44
NJ just acquired Hall. They're not trading him, especially for 1 year of Shattenkirk.
19 Jul 2016 22:16:26
By conditional 1st do you mean that is for 2017 or 2018 because you didn't really explain it. Also that's probably too much cap coming at St. Louis, so I'd imagine no.
Hall for Shattenkirk will not work unless Blues give up more, or Shattenkirk will 100% sign extension. So depends.
Nylander for Shattenkirk. Lol. I'm not going to say anything about that, I'll leave it to the leafs fans who know more.
19 Jul 2016 22:38:08
Are these sarcastic trades?
19 Jul 2016 22:56:05
Lol I don't know which one is actually funnier.
20 Jul 2016 03:36:47
Big no from leafs obvious reasons.
20 Jul 2016 04:07:45
I assumed they were trolls especially with colt senior as posters name. Nit one of these are legit.
20 Jul 2016 04:49:19
Oh Hall for Shattenkirk isn't good enough still?
20 Jul 2016 19:08:16
No but the logic of they just got him why trade him they need offense hall can bring that.
19 Jul 2016 07:48:15
CGY: Oliver Kylington, Emile Poirier, Tyler Wotherspoon, Jyrki Jokipakka, Brett Pollock.
TOR: Mitch Marner, William Nylander.
CGY: Mason MacDonald, Rushan Rafikov, Keegan Kanzig, Hunter Smith.
PHI: Ivan Provorov
CGY: Matt Stajan
NJ: 7th Round Pick
CGY: Dennis Wideman (25% Retained)
BOS: 4th Round Pick
Gaudreau - Monahan - Marner
Bennett - Nylander - Brouwer
Shinkaruk - Backlund - Frolik
Vey - Jankowski - Chiasson
Giordano - Brodie
Provorov - Hamilton
Andersson - Engelland.
19 Jul 2016 08:39:29
Lol yeah those will totally work. 100% realistic.
19 Jul 2016 11:10:53
That doesn't even get you one of Marner or Nylander let alone both!
19 Jul 2016 13:20:37
Leafs aren't trading away their future stars for calgarys plugs.
19 Jul 2016 13:26:30
those trades are so bad that idk if John Ferguson Jr. would of even done those.
19 Jul 2016 13:52:24
As a Flyers fan, I thought that Provorov one was ghastly, then I saw the one for Marner and Nylander which is much worse. Put the bong down dude.
19 Jul 2016 16:41:50
19 Jul 2016 16:45:29
19 Jul 2016 17:02:06
Lol. This site is classic. Leaves for a few days and comes back to jokes like this. Why has this site gone so downhill the last month or so.
19 Jul 2016 19:01:10
Haha I'd do Nylander for Bennet.
19 Jul 2016 22:07:53
You forgot Subban for Weber, Mr. Bergevin!
17 Jul 2016 15:33:26
Bruins/ Blue Jackets
Krejci Morrow for Hartnell Johnson
Marchand C. Miller for Stewart Dumba
Chara Rinaldo for Michalek Martinook
Subban Liles for Ellis
Theses should give more stability for bruins.
17 Jul 2016 16:34:13
Not sure I would trade Marchand, he is core player for Bruins.
17 Jul 2016 17:11:07
Every other team adds besides the Preds I doubt they'll trade another core deffensman unless the get one back considering they traded Seth Jones for a center. If Ellis goes who would replace him?
17 Jul 2016 18:26:51
These trades are a joke.
19 Jul 2016 00:10:34
Bruins / rangers
Krejic marchand for hayes krider
Bruins / anahiem
Rask / lidholm.
19 Jul 2016 00:13:39
Bruins / rangers
Krejic marchand for hayes krider
Bruins / anahiem
Rask for lidholm.
16 Jul 2016 13:43:50
Krejci Rinaldo for Nash K. Hayes
Chara for Streit Bellemard
Rask Morrow for Eliott Wideman.
16 Jul 2016 14:55:37
I'm done saying that your trades are lopsided for the othe other teams so I'll just make a trade suggestion.
Nashville: Kevin Fiala, 2017 1st and 2017 2nd/ Kamenev.
Now this trades good for Boston.
16 Jul 2016 15:04:01
Nashville declines to much cap going there way.
16 Jul 2016 18:20:52
Then take out the 2nd and add cap but that trade favours Boston.
16 Jul 2016 18:28:41
Fiala won't be getting traded.
16 Jul 2016 19:09:33
Because he's their top prospect and will forsure make the roster this season. And too much for a declining Krejci who is injury prone now.
15 Jul 2016 15:19:12
Chara Marchand for Pouliot Fayne Ference 1st 2017
Bruins get a forward they know and decent pick, while Oilers get steady defence and a complete forward.
15 Jul 2016 15:45:19
Trade is great. For an Oilers fan. unfortunately don't see it happening.
1. Oilers can't protect another D-man in expansion and would lose
him to L. V. thus losing the Pouliot asset for 1 yr of Chara's
service. Chara's pretty close to the end I think.
2. Boston is mad at PC and wouldn't do him favors like taking
Fayne and Ference who won't play again. They'd probably
want RNH AND Eberle instead of Pouliot. just to throw the
screws to PC.
15 Jul 2016 16:25:34
k99 you make no sense.
15 Jul 2016 16:53:35
No way Bruins do that.
15 Jul 2016 17:21:24
I know you only post Bruins trade, but I seriously do not know if you're a fan or not. This is terrible. Yesterday you finally made a decent post and now you're back to this. Idk what you think when you post stuff like this.
15 Jul 2016 18:01:05
The only trade rumors worse than the Oilers fans in trying to trade useless players on their roster or in the minors for established players is the Leaf nation supporters. So many unbelievable trades proposed here. Its funny how two of the worse teams in the NHL feel they have players and prospects that every team would give up a good player for.
15 Jul 2016 18:21:49
Bad for Boston.
15 Jul 2016 19:11:01
Island jet, this guy clearly isn't an oilers fan. And he posts trash like this all the time regarding the Bruins and whichever other team he chooses to have in it. So before you try and chirp both oilers and leafs on a post that doesn't even include real fans, is pointless. Nobody agreed with this trade either. Think before you type.
16 Jul 2016 01:48:52
I never once seen you make a trade that favours Boston but you a Bruins fan.
14 Jul 2016 21:02:14
Bruins acquire Bozak, Gardiner, Greening, Kapanen, Dermott, Leipsic, 2017 2nd, 2018 2nd
Leafs acquire Bergeron, Chara, Rinaldo
Leafs trade Holland, Marincin.
14 Jul 2016 21:32:29
Just your average everyday 8 for 3 trade.
14 Jul 2016 21:58:40
Lol regardless this wouldn't get Bergeron alone. Leafs may aswell add 3 more players to the deal.
15 Jul 2016 00:23:03
Lol legit wouldn't even get Bergeron. Oh man magic man.
15 Jul 2016 00:29:37
Not sure if you heard this before
15 Jul 2016 00:52:32
You don't even make an effort do you?
15 Jul 2016 03:08:38
15 Jul 2016 03:12:41
Hell no from T. O.
15 Jul 2016 04:49:37
No from Leafs ( we don't need Bergeron even at that price we are expected to Finnish bottom 5 in the NHL) and an even bigger no from Boston Bergy isn't going anywhere unless if it's a drastic over payment.
15 Jul 2016 14:34:23
Why are you guys disagree for me you think the Bruins add?
14 Jul 2016 16:34:43
Rinaldo Chara for Bickell Hainsey
Bruins get 2 players with grit, Hurricanes get leadership.
14 Jul 2016 22:00:33
Lol ok I'm convinced you're just a troll now. Chara for Hainsey and Bickell? And I thought your Chara for a 2nd and 3rd were bad.
14 Jul 2016 16:15:49
Blue Jackets/ Bruins
Hartnell Johnson for Krejci Morrow
This trade helps Colombus prepare for the expension draft and gives them a #1 center
This trade gives Boston help on defence and a grity forward that plays there style of hockey.
14 Jul 2016 19:55:48
This is for sure one of your better trades that Iv seen you propose. I actually think this makes sense for both teams.
Main thing is Boston gets a dman, and Columbus gets their centerman. Really interesting.
15 Jul 2016 04:56:19
No from Boston Krejic is a lot better the Johnson.
14 Jul 2016 06:53:54
- 2017 1st
- Brad Marchand
- Jacob Trouba
Brad Marchand fits what Winnipeg is doing. He might not be big but he sure uses his height and weight very efficiently. Playing a gritty style. Winnipeg's defence is already good with Dustin Byfuglien, Tyler Mylers, Tobias Enstrom and Mark Stuart.
This might be too high of a price for Jacob Trouba, but seeing defencemen go for a high price makes me re-thing my evaluation.
14 Jul 2016 07:01:00
Too high of a price for Trouba? Absolutely too high of a price to Trouba. No way.
14 Jul 2016 08:04:02
If Larsson could get Hall, trust me lol Trouba can get Marchand and a first.
14 Jul 2016 08:36:20
Wow. Marchand alone > Trouba.
Marhand he very underrated this last week or so. And Boston isn't trading him! Wtf.
14 Jul 2016 14:08:34
Jets wouldn't do this because Marchand becomes an ufa next year and would cost the Jets too much to keep him. Trouba will sign with the Jets for less money and is 6 years younger than Marchand. Too bad but the Jets are going to push their young/ cheaper prospects for the next few years.
14 Jul 2016 15:40:07
I haven't commented on this site, but have been following it for a while. Usually good stuff, but stop using the Hall trade to quantify anything is possible. I'd prefer to hear reasoning and something rational.
14 Jul 2016 16:17:22
It's pretty straight forward, the market for RHD is super high. STL is asking for a boat load for Shatty (who's a UFA) ; MIN wanted RNH (a C) + for Dumba (a guy who not many people feel is a top pairing d man) . And yes, Adam Larsson a second pairing d man got Hall, one of the best LW in the NHL.
So in this instance, WIN gets a soon to be UFA Marchand and a mid-late 1st round pick for a high ceiling, but still unproven RHD. So I think it's more than fair, if not benefiting Boston a bit more than Winnipeg.
14 Jul 2016 19:12:00
No he couldn't Tyson stop being delusional man. Stop comparing Hall and Larsson to every single defenseman trade. Trouba is going to want 6+mil a year and he hasn't done anything, he doesn't play top pairing minutes. Marchand for Trouba, I still wouldn't do it. But Marchand and a first round is ridiculous. That's way too much.
14 Jul 2016 21:42:11
Ive only compared a defenceman trade to the Hall-for-Larsson trade like what, 2-3 times at most?
You stop being delusional.
He hasn't done anything? Did you ever even see Jacob Trouba play man?
14 Jul 2016 21:53:11
Winnipeg already has enough scoring wingers, and with the risk of Marchand walking next year, I don't think they really need to do this trade. Also, Marchand will likely get a higher payday than Trouba, and Trouba is a lot you ger.
15 Jul 2016 02:51:59
Me stop being delusional hahaha look at this trade, please. What has Trouba done? Be mediocre his whole career and demand a top pairing pay raise? That's what Iv seen. The guy is good no question about it, but he's not that good. Definitely not now. He could be but he's not worth all that at the moment, definite overpay by Boston.
16 Jul 2016 01:32:09
@McJ No one but Trouba, his agent, and Jets mgmt know what he is asking for, and if it is 4-5mil like is being reported by most insiders/ outlets, then he is asking for 2nd pair money not top two. Top pairing money these days is at least 6.5mil with long terms. As high as 9mil, sooo not close on that one buddy.
14 Jul 2016 06:39:46
Boston: Brad Marchand and 2017 2nd
Who adds it fills positional needs.
14 Jul 2016 07:03:02
Philly isn't trading Prov, and not for that. Marchand would be very nice addition, but not for the price it trading Provorov.
14 Jul 2016 08:09:43
Philly will trade anybody for the right price, any team would.
The Flyers are already good on defence.
(Gostisbehere, Hagg, Morin, Sanheim, Alt)
Provorov can get them a really good forward and they wouldn't be losing too much because of their deep prospect pool on defence.
14 Jul 2016 13:16:13
Yeah no. They will trade any of the guys you just listed off. Not their top defenseman prospect. Hence the "yak for Sanhiem" rumour. Prov could get the best return but they aren't going to trade him, especially for somebody way older than him.
14 Jul 2016 14:27:21
Absolutely no shot from Philly. Provorov is the best defensive prospect in the league, and he won't be getting traded for anything less than a massive overpayment.
14 Jul 2016 20:08:12
Exactly what Dev said.
13 Jul 2016 18:58:44
To Minnesota for:
13 Jul 2016 19:22:49
Huge no from Boston Marchand is staying. A fair trade for Marchand would be.
Not going to happen for obvious reasons but the value is there.
13 Jul 2016 20:23:55
Uhhh Marchand is more valuable than Gally.
13 Jul 2016 21:46:06
Marchand for Gallagher? Ok that really accomplishes a lot lol either way that's a huge overpay for Dumba. I also don't think Wild could afford Miller and Marchand to resign the following season.
13 Jul 2016 21:48:38
Uhhhh Marchand is more valuable than that package alone.
And Marchand is more valuable than Gallagher straight ho too!
13 Jul 2016 22:00:48
Marchand > Gally
And as for the trade what drugs were you literally on. I'm not joking. That was insane. And Jake is one of my best friends he's staying in Boston lol.
But all seriousness this trade is horrendous for Boston.
14 Jul 2016 01:37:19
Really you think so Rederov Gallys a lot younger.
14 Jul 2016 05:13:29
Marchand had 40 goals or whatever this year? He's better. They play same style of game, but Marchand is definitely better, age shouldn't play a factor when comparing skill.
14 Jul 2016 06:36:16
Yah guys I agree that Marchands has more value 37 goals.
14 Jul 2016 11:30:29
He could very well be your best friend but will that stop him from being traded?
14 Jul 2016 13:22:45
No, but is Boston telling him that he is a very valued prospect and he is not for sale make any sense to say? He's not getting traded.
13 Jul 2016 07:09:41
There are reports that Detroit is frontrunners for Stattenkirk. The offer was Tatar for Shattenkirk straight up I saw. If any deal is to be made it will be before training camp.
I know Iv proposed Tatar + 2nd for Shattenkirk, and I still think that's a better offer than straight up. So I doubt 1 for 1 will work imo.
Also if red wings can't get a deal for Shattenkirk, they will take a run at acquiring Schultz. But it was also said that Bruins are making a big offer to Schultz soon.
13 Jul 2016 10:41:32
Seems like a fair offer. Tatar would be able to replace Backes and Brouwers production and the blues have lots of young guns coming up on defence. Detroit could really use a Shattenkirk.
13 Jul 2016 13:19:24
I would do this if I was Detroit. I would however request a conditional pick from st Lou if he doesn't sign an extension next year. That's shattys crutch right now.
13 Jul 2016 16:47:37
Yup true that Ron. But I can also see Shattnkirk for sure sign imo. They too have a new arena being built, and they already have a pretty good team.
13 Jul 2016 18:11:28
Mcjesus where was this posted.
Army will not trade him straight up for tatar.
we have 3 better leftwingers on the team and we have enough 20 goal scorers on the team.
It will be svechnikov and a pick. If Larson can garner hall i'm sure Shatty who is the better is not goingto only pull a 40 pt rfa fyi shatty had more points then him.
13 Jul 2016 18:12:29
Also Justin Schultz is not very good. Who would spend money on him not an ailing defense we saw how good he was with you guys.
13 Jul 2016 19:28:07
Schultz is on Pittsburgh.

FYI I still love how you keep comparing the Larsson trade to Shattenkirk when there is nothing to compare. And keep always disagreeing even when everyone else agrees. Idk why I bother including St. Louis when I already know you won't agree if it's not for a 1st round and a top prospect. Please stop being so biased man. And Iv seen reports of Tatar + for shat for a month now. This one came from a sportsnet analyst.
Tatar + for Shat is a very believable trade. Stop fighting it.
Schultz got signed 1 yr 1.4 mil to Pitt yes.

Dude hall Larson set the bench mark except it.
12 Jul 2016 22:24:51
Some Barrie trades I thought of
EDM: Eberle, Davidson
Edm: Nugent Hopkins, Reinhart
COL: Barrie 2nd RP
Tor: Van Reimsdyk, Gardiner
Bos: Spooner, 2nd RP
COL: Barrie, 2nd RP
DET: Nyquist, Smith
COL: Barrie, 3rd RP
STL: Rattie, Gunnarson.
12 Jul 2016 23:12:28
You think Hoffman has more value than Eberle, JVR, RNH and almost the same as Draisaitl?
12 Jul 2016 23:14:39
All no for Oilers unless we pretend that the exp draft isn't happening. If it wasn't then for the Oilers:
1.No Barrie + is required for JUST Eberle. Eberle is a top 3 forward and Barrie as per GM Sakic is a 5th Dman. got to
up the ante to get Eberle.
2.No Barrie ++ for JUST RNH. Same as Eberle except worth
3.No Draisetl is not for sale unless it involves the name
Shea Weber or Eq.
4. Leafs can protect Barrie in the exp draft, and want to
get young so YES.
5. Don't know Spooner so can't comment
6. Not familiar with Nyquist's ability so can't comment.
7. Sens have 3 D they would like to protect already so no
go unless Methot was a part of the deal.
8. St Louis needs to save cap $$ in the deal because they
are close to the cap. Don't see Rattie on the St Louis
roster, so can't say if the $$ to STL are more or
12 Jul 2016 23:21:34
First 3, no from Oilers.
Detroit is pretty good, and so is OTT.
Toronto, I think they decline.
Boston and St. Louis i'm not sure about so I won't say.
12 Jul 2016 23:32:01
Lol what's with the last trade? Gunnarson is a top 6 at best and Rattie isn't that great. Still could turn but I would say his value is probably a bit higher then St. Louis's 3rd. The others all seemed somewhat close/ reasonable but that last one is an absolute joke.
12 Jul 2016 23:46:34
the ones that seem fair are hoffman or spooner, people over value barrie hard. i wouldn't trade ebs or nyquist or JVR or drais for him.
13 Jul 2016 00:06:00
JVR = Eberle
Gardiner > Davidson
And that's a real easy no from the leafs.
13 Jul 2016 00:16:39
Believe these are bad for everyone that's not the avalanche.
13 Jul 2016 01:11:56
The Toronto and Draistal ones are terrible also on paper Gardiner has better possession numbers Shea Webber that's an interesting fact I just found out.
13 Jul 2016 01:39:14
I honestly don't really like any of those oilers trades. We are giving up our best RW (which we don't have much of) in the first one. the Nuge one is the best because we are giving up two things we don't need but I also think we are giving too much. We are giving too much in the Drasaitl trade.
13 Jul 2016 01:45:06
Some good some bad dras isn't worth barrie and a 2nd.
13 Jul 2016 01:58:17
Wow you just got fired by six teams.
13 Jul 2016 02:52:15
Gunners on is top 4 on one of the best defenses in the league. Rattie is a dark horse two years 30 goals ahl and had 6 goals in 11 games last season. I think with backes and brouwer gone he will play 3rd line rw he needs a shot.
I don't think Aves are getting enough back.
Also isn't barrie rhd we have petro and parayko they are better.
13 Jul 2016 05:20:10
Pary isn't better than barrie.
13 Jul 2016 06:54:08
6'6 230 rhd with 33pts +20 and had 7pts in playoffs was 2nd best dman in all three playoffs series as a first year rookie. His ceiling is high. Rather have him over shatty 2.0 that's was -17.
13 Jul 2016 08:22:27
Colt relax, we've heard it all before. Parayko is a god. We know brotha.
13 Jul 2016 10:18:14
Colt, This equation doesn't add up, If Boumeester and Pietrangelo made up the first pairing and Shattenkirk and Parayako on the 2nd, then how is Gunner a top 4?😂 it shows how much you're overvaluing. Realistically Gunner sneaks into the top 4 at some games because he's a left shot and he could possibly play top 4 and of course the Blues don't have a lot of LHD, but he is realistically a top 6, I know you overvalue your STL players, you're hated for your obnoxious biased opinions, almost every post you make has at least has 3x as much unbelievable than believable (with good reason) but come on, be a realist for once in your life.
13 Jul 2016 13:08:10
Colts right- Parayko is better than Barrie. Easily.
13 Jul 2016 17:04:37
Here is also what I can't figure out. How is Barrie so overvalued by GM's when they know Roy pretty much has to or wants to move him, yet Oilers looking for a RHD and a player like Taylor Hall (RIP Taylor) gets supremely undervalued by ALL 29 other GM's?
13 Jul 2016 18:20:15
Flying V fyi all combos happened last year.
they had edmondson with petro
Jaybo with shatty
gunner with parayako
they had jaybo petro
they had jayboo petro
and everywhere in between. in all reality Hitch belives in pairs and chemistry.
Gunner played with parayko jaybo usually with petro and edmondson with shatty
if you rank the talent of the dmen it gos like this
gunnerson could easily be top 4 for most teams in the league who are not stacked.
13 Jul 2016 18:30:26
its funny how much crap i get for telling it how it is with Parayko yet every other post on this site for the last 6 months was in regards to trading for him. I talked this kid up since before the season. I got spat on, i said he would contend for calder (which he did great class of rookies this year) , I was told he wouldn't maintain his success (which he did), then i'm told he won't be able to cut it in the playoffs with the best teams, (he stood out and was easily the 2nd best dman for blues), So stand out year stand out playoffs, then i'm told he will be a one year wonder, won't repeat success. So i'm just waiting for next season, what will be the excuse then, I have watched hockey my entire life played it coached it and love it. I can tell the difference between good bad and gifted and those with raw undeveloped talent. I also know there are a few things you can't teach, good instincts, size and heart. This Kid has everything and i'm willing to continue to watch him develope cause i see his talent, his poise and his heart. I will not bring him up again unless some else does. But unlike this offseason when i didn't shove the blues succes in all your nay Sayers faces, i will with Colton Parayko and i will enjoy it.
13 Jul 2016 20:14:27
I watched Parayko play all playoffs and the guy is a stud Colt. As far as the rest of the team goes I think you can tone it down a notch. You over value almost every other player on the team IMO.
13 Jul 2016 20:43:14
No one had anything bad to say about him. Your not the only one that noticed his talents. No one told you he wouldn't be good in the playoffs? People said he would drop in production which he did didn't he? Same can be said for Draisaitl. You actually said he'd contend for the Norris I remember that! We all agree he's a good young D. Your not an NHL scout or something.
15 Jul 2016 05:12:39
Ebs if you break down the season in half he almost had similar halves.
