1st Round Pick 2016
05 Feb 2016 15:15:46
Never, why in hell?
05 Feb 2016 14:19:14
Bruins are in 3rd place now, but as a fan whose watched every single game, I have little faith they'll make any real mark in the playoffs, that being said, they should deal assets while they are most valuable to teams making cup runs.
St Louis Trades:
Dallas needs a top 6 center to replace Spezza, and Krejci is under contract past this year, so not just a rental player.
St. Louis should be a better team then they are at this point, they haven't scored as much as they should have, Erickson has 40 Points (15-25-40) and could help pull Stastny out of his funk, his 40 pts would be 3rd best on the Blues behind Steen, and Vlad.
05 Feb 2016 14:55:16
Eriksson will not get u Rattie and a first. Also good spelling on Eriksson since u watch all their games.
05 Feb 2016 16:05:25
Good value but why would Dallas want Krjic.
05 Feb 2016 17:33:34
Blues have only drafted 2 of their last 5 1st round picks. They are bare in the forward prospect pool. They will be keeping their pick.
03 Feb 2016 18:32:44
Cgy:dennis wideman (25%retained), joe colborne
Im sure boston fans hate this but reality is that erikson is a ufa, and colborne is an upgrade on rinaldo and connoly etc.
03 Feb 2016 21:04:42
This is one of your more reasonable posts. Personally I could see a multi player deal centered around Hudler and Wideman + for Eriksson and Subban, because it's actually been discussed.
03 Feb 2016 21:23:17
The 20 game suspension puts a damper on this.
04 Feb 2016 11:28:49
Just wondering why they'd trade for two guys they already had.
04 Feb 2016 15:20:02
That was pure ecklund speculation to have loui or subban in there. But it's dead in the water now. Why would Boston give up a 1st and prospect they'd get for loui to trade him for wideman? c'mon people . And subban? Granted not a superstar but could probably get more than wideman.
02 Feb 2016 14:40:27
To TB: Krecji/ Loui Eriksson (50% retained) and 2016 2nd
To Bos: Stamkos/ Drouin
Tampa can flip Eriksson for a 1st and prospect (1st/ vesey from NSH) to get the value for drouin or keep Eriksson for a cup run. They also get a #1 center who's signed for 7.25 going forward thus leaving them room to sign the other players they need to address.
To STL: Stamkos/ K miller/ 2017 1st
To Bos: Shattenkirk/ Statsny
Stl gets their #1 center for the playoffs and can resign him with Statsny 7M going back the other way. Bos gets their coveted RH dman and 2nd line center.
Seidenberg- C miller.
02 Feb 2016 15:05:57
Pretty unrealistic, I doubt Stamkos gets traded let alone twice in the same season.
02 Feb 2016 15:39:53
Trading for Vessy would be risky he is a free agent in the summer and dad and brother are in the leafs organization.
02 Feb 2016 16:17:50
Can sign him cause of the 7 million this guy wants 10 plus million a year. The reason the blues are gunna trade shatenkirk is salary reasons in a few years they will have to deal with rattie and fabri and they both look like good players stl can't afford Stamkos.
02 Feb 2016 16:56:53
Vessel is going to t. o free agent writing is on the wall. Stamkos won't waive his no trade clause. He has as good a chance as any winning g a cup in t. b this year. And will sign with leafs at 12 million a year. Done deal.
02 Feb 2016 17:02:27
Hope the leafs don't go 12 a year that be nuts.
02 Feb 2016 17:49:15
12 million is a lot but leafs can afford it and the chance to get a stamkos either in a trade or free agency won't come around for a long time. They can afford 12 mill but they can't afford to pass up on this opportunity.
02 Feb 2016 18:13:18
Everyone's on the home town team bandwagon these days so that means vesey is signing in Boston. His brother was 6th rnd pick and not likely to ever make the roster fill time and his dad's a scout probably telling him to to avoid the dumpster fire in TO for another couple years.
02 Feb 2016 19:48:37
You aren't very knowledgable about hockey. Toronto isn't and won't be a dumpster fire for long (actually playing above expectations, just look at the line-up) they have Marner, Nylander, Kapanen, Rielly, Brown, Leipsic, Bracco, Timashov, JVR, and Dermott to build around. Then there's the Bruins who took Senshyn with the 15th pick and he was going to go in the 2nd round and was playing on the 4th line that year lol. The Bruins are a dumpster fire in the making, traded away Seguin and Hamilton for no where close to good value and have an average prospect pool with no depth with Forwards or defenders.
02 Feb 2016 20:28:08
Burney you have to remind as to where I mentioned stamkos hoing to t. o because he's from the area. He will go there because he grew up a fan and they are one of the few teams that can afford him.
02 Feb 2016 21:41:43
The reason the Bruins took senyshyn is because he played so well WHILE playing on the 4th line. I'm not saying it was a good pick at the time. i know i was scratching my head a little but now Senyshyn is one of the top goal scorers in the ohl i believe with 30 goals in 46 games. He already has 4 more goals this year than last with 20 fewer games. Point is JF12 if you were maybe a little more "knowledgable" when it comes to hockey you would know that. Anyway these trades are bad and Boston and Toronto both have the potential to compete in the coming years depending on the decisions the respected managements make.
02 Feb 2016 23:40:54
Hahaha JF12 you judge like you've been working in the NHL for years. The leafs Marlies team won't be all on the roster for a another year probably two. And when stamkos doesn't end up in TO hope you all admit that you were presumptuous and wrong lol. Ppl on this site get so angry over the little things lol. Leafs are a dumpster fire now and vesey will sign this summer so again why not wait and come in years when they might be good. You clearly know nothing about timing and a player picking his spots.
As for the leafs cap I dunno if they could spot 12m going forward with the deal Reilly's going to want and the all star team that'll all be coming off elc deals.
02 Feb 2016 23:42:27
And JF12 they actually have been rated to be in the top 10 for prospects. They have a deep defensive pool and some decent forwards. My knowledge is just fine. Maybe it's time for you to brush up your knowledge.
03 Feb 2016 01:26:47
Some of the guys JF named won't be part of the core. And maybe Vessey wants to go home but to say he won't go to Toronto until they get good is ridiculous. Also can't see Boston being in the top 10 for prospects but I don't know to much about them.
03 Feb 2016 02:36:04
Rated by who ESPN? Debrusk was projected late 1st Round, and Shenshyn 2nd Round. I'm not really seeing these high end prospects the Leafs have.
03 Feb 2016 03:44:34
Trading away Seguin, Hamilton, Lucic to get back Eriksson (UFA, will be gone), Zboril, Debrusk and we can't forget Senshyn lmao, that isn't a dumpster fire? As a Leafs fan its going to be very sweet revenge watching the B's fall apart to a bottom 5 team over the next few years. Few too many hits to the head for Neely i guess? Lol, your team has no future, and you know it. Better change teams while you still can.
03 Feb 2016 04:00:32
Another reason I think stamkos goes to t. o is the amount of money they can make him from endorsements.
03 Feb 2016 07:14:48
Bruins will be fine as long as Sweeney doesn't get creative again. Stay classy Toronto fans.
03 Feb 2016 14:55:40
Say what you guys want but Senyshyn could be a very good player. Heard Leafs were interested in him if he was around for 24 last season before the trade.
03 Feb 2016 19:51:54
Blues would say no.
02 Feb 2016 07:55:58
OTT: Cowen, 2016 3rd, Nick Paul
Let's face it, Bruins won't be able to resign Erikson. Taking a chance on Cowen can have a low risk high reward outcome. He is only signed for one more year so it's a cap relief either way if he doesn't pan out in Boston. On the other hand, the Bruins have Chara, arguably one of the best shutdown Dman in the NHL.
02 Feb 2016 11:31:15
At this point in his career, Cowan would just be a throw in. of course right now, he's got nowhere to go but up. I like Nick Paul, but I think it would take more than that to get Eriksson from Boston.
02 Feb 2016 14:13:48
Bruins have enough 5/ 6 guys in their lineup now. They can get a better return for Eriksson than Cowen. And I live in Ottawa so I've seen Cowen play a lot. He's in the tinordi realm of struggling to make it. And his cap hit doesn't help.
03 Feb 2016 04:51:08
Considering the fact that Erikson is on his last year, I think Paul, Cowen, 3rd (this is the correct order. ) Is a bit much. If ottawa would deal all those separately they'd get a better value than a perhaps rental Erikson.
29 Jan 2016 16:17:39
toNash: Loui Eriksson, Kevan Miller
to Bos: 2016 2nd/ Kevin fiala/ negotiating rights to Vesey
Nashville has a top line of neal-johansen-eriksson for a playoff run and have the cap space to resign him to make them a more competitive group going forward. They also add K miller as a 3rd pairing hard nosed dman. B's improve their wing prospects and add 2nd rnd pick.
To tor: SJ 2016 1st/ Joe morrow/ rights to Vesey
To Bos: JVR
Boston gets top 6 power forward. Toronto gets two good prospects and a 1st rnd pick to contribute to the rebuild.
To Ana: 2016 2nd (nash), Frank Vatrano, 2016 3rd (bos), Seth Griffith, rights to max chudinov
toBos: Sami Vatanen
Anaheim gets to draft picks, two young affordable talented wingers who can play at the nhl level and the rights to a similar player to vatanen who currently is in khl and is rumoured to be coming over at the end of the season. Bos gets a rh dman at the end of RFA deal which can hopefully work out an extension.
bos lineup going forward
29 Jan 2016 18:20:03
Leafs have the rights to vesey already s. j just don't know it yet.
29 Jan 2016 20:49:54
Nashville has his rights at the moment not Boston.
28 Jan 2016 23:08:01
2016 1st rounder
29 Jan 2016 00:06:45
Over payment from bruins for a ufa.
29 Jan 2016 01:03:18
I dunno who the guy is but the pick is probably around 20th? I'd think...somewhere in there. Not bad..as a Habs fan hate anything that could make the Bruins better lol. I'm jus not sure if he's the guy to get the Bruins to challenge amd over take Chicago, Washington Tampa or LA. To me those are the top 4 teams. And before ya go and gamble the future for a UFA, you really have to think, is this the guy that's going to get us to that level? ..
29 Jan 2016 01:37:52
Hahahah no! We have our own UFA to deal with who plays a better 2 way game than Ladd and has more pts this year.
27 Jan 2016 00:31:25
Two moves I'd like to see the Stars make as an educated fan
To Dal: Loui Eriksson
To Bos: Cody Eakin, Niklas Hansson and a 2016 2nd
To Dal: Roman Polak and PA Paranteau
To Tor: Ales Hemsky (25% Retained), a 2017 2nd and a 2016 4th
Benn Seguin Nichushkin
Eriksson Spezza Sharp
Roussel Janmark Paranteau
Scevior Fiddler Eaves
27 Jan 2016 01:09:35
Why would the leafs take that? They would get a 2nd and a 4th for them anyway, without taking anything back.
27 Jan 2016 01:58:50
Fairly easy no from the leafs.
02 Feb 2016 17:26:36
I think both those trades are very fair and there very good for Dallas. I like the look of those lines.
24 Jan 2016 19:10:25
To Sharks - Matt Irwin
To Bruins - 7th round pick
I Want To See Irwin Get A Chance.
24 Jan 2016 19:22:55
Stop it please move onto another sport.
24 Jan 2016 20:31:52
WE don't WANT IRWIN BACK HE SUCKS.
23 Jan 2016 06:45:37
From Edmonton: 2 and 5 Rd pick
From Pittsburgh: Olli Maatta
Pittsburgh cap space in atrocious and they need to sign some of their 10 other RFA's as well as find a back up for Fluery. It's about time PC takes advantage of that. A high second Rd pick should be enough for a team who has their back against a wall (see Bos with Boychuk and Chi with Leddy)
23 Jan 2016 07:38:28
Come on man. This has to be one of the worst proposals on here Ever.
First off, Not even on the same planet for Maata.
Second, Pens need to improve their D, not trade away one of their top 2 for garbage picks not even close to his value. This is just so so very bad. -From and Oilers fan.
23 Jan 2016 07:40:33
You want PC to take advantage of something? Then buck up, a 2nd and a 5th isn't getting Maatta. Make a real move for once and offer the 1st.
23 Jan 2016 09:19:22
23 Jan 2016 14:49:28
23 Jan 2016 15:03:06
If you want Maata you'd be giving up pieces much more valuable then that and Pittsburgh isn't moving him anyways. They'd move Kunitz, Hagelin or basically any other bad contract before moving Maata. Just terrible, your explanation doesn't even fit for moving Maata.
23 Jan 2016 15:27:50
Not even going 2 comment on how bad this is.
23 Jan 2016 18:06:37
Not Enough For Maata.
23 Jan 2016 20:32:40
Pitts adds, maybe Crosby.
19 Jan 2016 00:48:20
My GM skills here:
Both players that like to hit and can score. Ritchie is younger, but Dal looking to win now.
Tor: PaP + Polak
Bos: 2nd + 4th
Bos has the Cap space. Polak can fill in perfect 5/ 6 amd PaP can play 2nd/ 3rd line, but most importantly help on (always struggling) PP.
Van: Vrbata + Shinkaruk
Kadri would fit in great with young group of players and Van has shown interest in Kadri.
Mtl: Del La Rose
Det: 1st+ cap dump equal to Bozak term.
Tor: Phaneuf + Frattin
Grabner/ Boyes what ever pick I can get
Winnik value might not be so great.
Lupuls, interesting one here. He's been healthy and most important, I believe he can be the Xfactor for a team making a push. Maybe a good draft pick I would retain some salary or top propect and take back Salary.
Draft: Puljujarvi RW- Logan Brown C via Pit. Luc-Dubois LW via Det.
Keep in mind Puljujarvi could be Matthews/ Laine depends where Leafs end up. If some how end up picking 6th, take a Dman.
19 Jan 2016 04:31:31
As a canucks fan I would counter with Prust Higgins and Weber for Kadri. Would consider taking Reilly off your hands as he is one of your only players worth taking.
19 Jan 2016 04:44:07
It seemed better than the average leafs post until the Edmonton one.
19 Jan 2016 05:58:08
I think RNH trade is more then good. He makes 6 mil and with McDavid's return and Draisait's play, drops RNH to 3rd line. Phaneuf and Ference could be a good pairing. Once Klefbom returns Edm can look to trade Schultz for picks or prospects.
19 Jan 2016 14:03:07
Just because a player falls to 3rd line on their team doesn't mean they are a 3rd line player. RNH should not be valued as an overpayed 3rd line center. Phaneuf is an overpaid middle pair D man. Frattin is literally nothing in a trade. RNH is a top 6 center easy and top line on most teams. His contract isn't that bad and he can get more than Phaneuf.
19 Jan 2016 14:48:19
Theres no way Toronto lands the nuge for Phaneuf. That would go down as one of the biggest steals in leafs history.
Also, Komarov will get much more than that.
20 Jan 2016 20:02:09
What struggling power play in Boston? #1 right now. PArenteau would probably kill it. And polak isn't needed we have an abundance of 5/ 6 guys.
22 Jan 2016 22:18:53
You're delusional if you think Van is deal Vrb and Shink for Kadri. No chance.
25 Jan 2016 16:12:55
Detroit has no interest in Bozak. They have enough 2-3cs in Helm, Sheahan, Richards, etc.
02 Feb 2016 17:29:16
Ritchie for Komarov lmao never man.
18 Jan 2016 23:28:24
2nd round pick
19 Jan 2016 01:49:39
Canucks counter with KoKo and 2nd for Hamhuis (5o% retained)
18 Jan 2016 19:40:09
Does Connolly, Alex kokhlachev, rights to max chudinov and seidenberg 25%retianed pull trouba and his potentially big contract out of Winnipeg and land him in Boston?
18 Jan 2016 20:58:23
scraps for a #2 defenseman? Sure.
18 Jan 2016 21:37:54
Yeah apparently that package gets tons of different top end talent.
19 Jan 2016 00:27:02
Except usually it is Habs scraps ;)
18 Jan 2016 19:27:32
Vancouver Canucks trade Dan Hamhuis to the Boston Bruins for Alexander Khokhlachev.
The Story: The Vancouver Canucks are still in the Pacific Division race but have too many holes to be a serious contender for the Stanley Cup. Dealing veteran Hamhuis months before free agency for an intriguing young forward in Khokhachev is good asset management. Boston is also in a playoff race with a veteran team, and adding Hamhuis—once he has recovered from injury—would help shore up a wobbly defense.
18 Jan 2016 21:24:39
You got this off BleacherReport.
17 Jan 2016 02:47:55
Heard a Drouin trade could be close. Apperently the front Runner are the St Louis Blues. Hearing it could be more than just Drouin coming from Tampa. The main reason the trade hasn't my happend is the Montreal Canadians keep calling and for Drouin. Names that have been discussed from the blues are Shattenkirk, Fabbri and other picks and prospects. I'd imagine if it was a trade for Shats Tampa would add something. Interested to see how the next few days shape out.
Also don't be surprised to see Bruins trade for a Defenceman in the near future.
17 Jan 2016 05:01:08
Montreal may be calling but I doubt theyd be holding up a trade. They don't really have anything available that Tampa wants at least not at the level to go from other conference to in division.
17 Jan 2016 09:06:38
You heard wrong. I heard word on the street is yzerman likes to wear a wig and dress when he works the phones for a trade lol.
17 Jan 2016 12:23:29
Totally agree, I'm sure Yzerman is smart enough to not trade Drouin within the conference let alone the division.
15 Jan 2016 15:54:42
To Dal: Dennis Seidenberg (25% retained)
To Bos: 2016 2nd/ 5th round picks
Gives dallas a legit shut down dman who can boost their PK and give them some grit for a deep playoff run. Bos gets picks back
toPhi: Brett Connolly, Alex KhoKhlachev, 2016 2nd (dal)
to Bos: Brayden Schenn
boston gets a good 3rd liner who can move up to 2nd if needed. Philly gets young offensive minded rw and c and a 2nd rnd pick
To nsh: Loui Eriksson and zach trotman
To Bos 2016 1st rnd pick, yakov trenin
Nash adds to it's skill upfront for a playoff run and adds a young depth rh dman piece. Bos gets a 1st and centre prospect. And Nashville has the cap space to resign loui if they so choose.
Boston fights for a wild card spot with
Chara- C miller
Boston then makes an impact at draft and FA with all the picks and cap space to hopefully make a deal for a top pairing rh dman. And maybe max chudinov decides to come over.
15 Jan 2016 16:33:16
Probably one of your more realistic posts.
15 Jan 2016 18:41:11
Little Much for Schenn IMO.
15 Jan 2016 19:25:25
@bud I've gotten different feedback from different flyers fans. Trying to judge fair value. Some people think he's worth a 1st +.
15 Jan 2016 19:51:02
Make it a 3rd on the Schenn deal.
16 Jan 2016 08:45:38
BOS-DAL deal is pretty reasonable, Sidenberg is on the older side so a late pick like a 5th is justifiable, IMO
BOS-PHI deal is spot on, although, Schenn is a lower rated top 6 player, so to have him on the third line would be underusing him. But that package is about right to obtain him
BOS-NSH deal seems sort of off, Eriksson isn't worth a first and Trotman doesn't add enough skill/ experience to justify such a high pick. I don't know much about that prospect coming over from NSH so I don't really have an opinion on it
All in all 2/ 3 trades are pretty equal and fair.
21 Jan 2016 05:23:57
I don't think bs will trade erikkson as long as they are in a playoff spot but they would need a 1st + to trade him at deadline.
11 Jan 2016 20:52:59
Yandle been up and down the depth chart in NY and could be out of their price range to resign. Could something work around
Yandle to Boston for Eriksson?
Who adds and does it work? It would help Bos on the back end but they'd need to move seidenberg and morrow in another trade.
11 Jan 2016 22:10:26
Yandle could potentially help Boston but I don't know what NYR needs with Eriksson. Don't see it happening.
12 Jan 2016 00:17:40
I could be wrong but don't rangers need scoring? Kreider and Hayes have been disappointing and I think even Stepan has been struggling. Maybe a Yandle and Eriksson swap isn't the worst idea.
12 Jan 2016 12:01:29
Ya my thought was ufa fir ufa before the deadline. It fits Bos needs for for a good puck moving dman and Eriksson has 35 pts in 40 games so he can certainly help the Rangers offensively and is a great two way winger. Not sure if the cap $$ work here without a little tinkering.
11 Jan 2016 17:53:08
Bruins: Erikson, trotman And 2016 1st
Blues get scoring help, good d prospect and a first
Boston gets top pairing d man to help chara and fill the hole left by boychuk and Hamilton trades.
11 Jan 2016 20:20:22
Where's Russian tank lol?
11 Jan 2016 20:24:19
Absolutely not from St. Louis.
11 Jan 2016 21:35:25
Been really busy at work lately
No from STK erickosn is old and not a #1 center.
11 Jan 2016 17:43:37
With jvr injured should the Bruins try and acquire him.
To tor: Eriksson, Connolly 2016 2nd
To Bos Jvr
Tor gets a young winger in Connolly and decent draft pick and a trade chip for the deadline in Eriksson to acquire another picks
Boston gets top end lw
11 Jan 2016 17:54:25
Not enough for jvr. Doesn't make sense for leafs. Jvr has one of the best contracts in the league for a 50-60 point player. Leafs counter with
Tor - JVR
Bos - malcolm subban, eriksson (cap dump) and 2016 3rd.
11 Jan 2016 20:19:30
11 Jan 2016 20:45:46
The pick would have to be a first I'd assume.
12 Jan 2016 01:04:42
Well that's what loui Eriksson is. My thoughts were that Eriksson replaces a good body while jvr would have been injured and when the deadline comes they trade him pick and prospect. So they'd end up with Connolly a 2nd rnd pick a 1st rnd pick and a prospect for jvr. Seems like a pretty haul.
06 Jan 2016 17:33:55
Habs are sinking and i think it is not going to be better. I would like to see bergevin trade away playoff assets to get young players and draft picks. Makes one step behind to make 2 forward kind of like the bruins did last year Mtl:markov dals:faksa Mtl:emelin la: valentin zykof mtl: pleckanec nash: 1st mtl: eller, pateryn det: mantha. Condon, gilbert desharnais, traded if someone wants it against 12 hockey sticks. Trade values maybe off i didn't work them deep so let me know what trade you could see.
06 Jan 2016 18:10:42
Price will be back in time to save the day he will be well rested for a long playoff run, maybe a Tweek to add a little scoring at deadline . They can be a contender for the cup especially with price being rested.
06 Jan 2016 18:33:50
so now MTL fans are talking rebuild. so cute reading these posts.
06 Jan 2016 18:47:13
No need to blow up the team. Like Giller23 says. Tweek the offence.. but blowing it up is a huge mistake.
06 Jan 2016 18:49:56
Shankar, i have always stated that habs will never win the cup with pleckanec, i hate the old players.
06 Jan 2016 20:00:23
06 Jan 2016 20:17:01
Montreal is far from Cup Contenders Price or Not they can't score goals. You do realize Boston has 3 games in hand and only needs 3 points to kick you in wildcard? They remind me of the LFS in 2014 were they went 2-14 to miss playoffs obviously there's more time but I don't things are getting better Price will b out for another Month at best and their GM has no balls to make a trade hate all you want, watch and see in 2 weeks Montreal will be out of the playoffs.
06 Jan 2016 20:34:50
Mtl: Emelin, andrighetto, 2nd
Edm: Yakupov, depth D man
Even if Yakupov seems like a bust Edmonton will still want something for him because they know we want him.
