To la kings: pasternak and 2 round pick 2018
To boston: muzzin or martinez, kempe and 1 round pick 2018.

16 Aug 2017 19:41:54
Holy smokes that's horrible for Boston.

17 Aug 2017 16:04:19
It's not that horrible for Boston if Muzzin is included. Also, instead of Kempe, I'd include pearson.

15 Aug 2017 03:49:16
Boston: pastranak
Canucks: goldobin and gudbrandson

baertchi- horvat-Erickson
Granlund- sutter- goldobin


15 Aug 2017 14:34:00
I know Boston has a history of trading talented 21 year old forwards (Kessel+Seguin) but trading a guy who got 70 points for an unproven rookie and a middle pairing dman is suicide for the Bruins GM.

15 Aug 2017 20:26:25
@McRazzle I agree but rumours flying that Bruins are open to shopping Pasta, would need more then this 100p tho.

12 Aug 2017 23:45:35
Buffalo trade Josh Gorges, Zegmus Girgenson and 2018 2nd to
Boston Bruins for Spooner

Buffalo could use a Left Center on the 3rd line and PP
Boston could use a Left Defense-man, Girgensons could fill the 4th center spot, plus a pick, which if the Sabres miss the playoffs could be pretty good.

Spooner is essential a spare part for Boston as are Gorges and Girgensons for Buffalo.

Please let me know what Buffalo needs to add. If one should consider commenting please include constructive suggestions.

15 Aug 2017 04:34:44
I was hoping for comments, 12 unbelievable does not indicated why it is unbelievable. But 5 believable leads me to think that the unbelievable are split 50/ 50.

05 Aug 2017 23:11:10
Boston: spooner

Florida: petrovic

06 Aug 2017 16:37:41
Boston's already got d-men like Petrovic (McQuaid and Miller) no need to send an offensive weapon like Spooner.

04 Aug 2017 21:05:26
Vegas: Theodore, Cody Glass, Nick Suzuki
Boston: David Pastrnak

04 Aug 2017 21:39:26
makes no sense for either team.

04 Aug 2017 21:51:14
This sets Vegas way back. Theadore was the best piece they got in all the dealing for the draft. Then add the first 2 first rounders in franchise history? Pasternak is a good goal scorer and still very young himself, but theadore will be a top 4 Dman for sure, maybe top pair. And both those forwards have massive upside too. McPhee said he's building through the draft the right way, he wouldn't abandon that whole plan before playing a single game.

04 Aug 2017 23:06:16
No from both sides.

05 Aug 2017 11:07:12
Nylander for Pasta. Pasta is a better goal scorer but Nylander has the ability to play center.

05 Aug 2017 21:02:58
"Lol no. " -Boston.

04 Aug 2017 10:54:26
With Spooner looking for a long term contract with salary of 4m and up, the bruins might be looking to unload him before next season....

Bos Spooner 4 Pittsburg 2nd round pick 2018


Bos Spooner 4 Mtl 2nd rond pick(chicago's)

This would allow boston to make room for the cap next year, picks for trades or to draft... and room for younger players to gain experience...

Let me know if it makes sense value wise, not to sure of spooner's value, thanks

04 Aug 2017 13:39:04
I think they're going to want more than a late 2nd rounder for him but I don't know how desperate their cap situation is. Money problems make teams take less for better players obviously.

04 Aug 2017 16:49:52
Any trade with MTL and Bos doesn't make sense.

05 Aug 2017 04:42:12
they just love to hate each other I do not see it happening unless a third team is involve.

05 Aug 2017 18:57:22
they love to hate each other, I don not see this one happening unless another team is involved.

05 Aug 2017 21:03:51
"That's hysterical" -Don Sweeney.

06 Aug 2017 19:34:29
The winning habits are saying blues would Like to unload Paul Statney salary cap, and thinks Bergie could Build a trade using Carr and other prospect for Statney , a lot more likely and spooner.

28 Jul 2017 20:11:07
Two Rangers Trades:

First Trade:

R. Nash and 2019 6th to the Florida Panthers in exchange for C. Sceviour and 2018 2nd.

- Nash did produce 23 goals last year and a high 30s in points, however, his value is continually dropping after a 40 goal season two seasons ago.
- He makes 7.8 million in salary, so dumping him for Sceviour saves about 7 million in cap space.

- Rangers have Buchnevich and Vesey who can fill Nash's spot, plus Sceviour who can take over third line LW.
- Florida picks up the better player with a bigger contract - however, they do have the cap space to do it.
- Because Nash's skill outweighs his 1 year expensive contract (imo), the swap ofpicks goes in the favour of New York.
- Nash can bring experience to a depleted Florida forward group, and can slot in nicely as second line LW, behind Jonathan Huberdeau.

Second Trade:

A. DeAngelo and M. Puempel and 2018 5th to the Boston Bruins in exchange for R. Spooner and M. Subban and Tim Schaller.

- Rangers need a centreman after dealing Stepan. Spooner, although recently signed by Boston, was not favoured by many there. His 'rocky' d-zone play, plus Boston's abundance of centres/ players who can play centre may have cost him a spot on the team.

- Bruins could use a skilled dman like DeAngelo, and although he was recently acquired by NYR (in the Stepan deal nonetheless), it is not much of a loss, due to NYR already having Skjei, McDonagh, Shattenkirk, Smith, Holden and Staal, as well as Bergeglazov as a 7th dman.

- Although Holden for Spooner would be ideal for NYR, the value is completely in NYR's favour, and I could never see this happening. DeAngelo (imo) is worth more than Spooner, and that is why Boston would add Schaller and Subban, while NY only adds Puempel and a 5th.

28 Jul 2017 20:35:48
Don't know much about a cpl guys in the second deal to know. What I do know is that rumours of attitude problems have followed deangelo already and that's something I would stay away from if I'm Boston. Some guys getvtraded and rumours come out that are unfounded but this isn't just once. He was suspended from the OHL by his own team and then the league for racial slurs at a teammate in his draft year. Traded straight up for a 2nd round pick after being picked in the first round by Tampa. Then plays less than 40 NHL games and has a physical abuse of an official suspension and traded again. I could be wrong about this, but I can't help but feel like this kid is going to be one the guys that wastes his talent because he's too dumb to get out of his own way. No other reason why a RHD with his talent at his age is being given up on so soon by 3 teams.

21 Jul 2017 15:55:27
Bruins Trade :
-David Krejci
-Adam McQuaid

Nashville Trades:
-Ryan Ellis

trade 2

Bruins Trade
-Brandon Carlo
-Malcolm Subban
-Austin Czarnik

Colorado Trades
-Matt Duchene
-2017 2nd.

21 Jul 2017 16:29:16
I doubt Nashville will take on the Krejci contract to be honest. They also have their C in Bonino (also on a big-ish contract) .

As a Bruins fan, I'd hate to see trade 2. We are trying to build defense, because we have none, and the idea that they'd trade a high potential guy like Carlo for yet another center is so stupid in my opinion.

21 Jul 2017 16:30:43
The second trade is good but the first is horrible.

21 Jul 2017 16:39:33
Preds aren't going to trade any of their Top 4 Defenseman group that carried them deep into the playoffs and especially not for two old veterans. They won't even trade them for Duchene for that matter. So your first trade essentially is unbelievable.

The second trade doesn't look like it's enough for Duchene let alone AVs adding the pick. Duchene straight up is worth more then the package you offered. Not as insane as Sakic wants mind you but definitely more then what you proposed.

22 Jul 2017 04:44:32
If Preds trade a top four D it would be for a way better center than Kricji in my opinion.
And Ellis is more valuable than him anyways.

22 Jul 2017 13:42:41
COLORADO offered Duchene for Carlo straight up and Bruins declined. If anyone wants to argue this I can find a source.

18 Jul 2017 20:59:23
Bos:Spooner, 3rd
Columbus: Murray

18 Jul 2017 20:43:05
Bos: Spooner and 2nd Rd pick
Columbus: Murray

11 Jul 2017 15:47:12
Tor: JVR & Marchenko

WPG: Myers & Bostons 5th

11 Jul 2017 02:17:57
I am re-posting this. I received 9 believable 19 unbelievable. Unbelievable does not indicated who needs to add or who would not accept the trade at all. Please provide as much feedback as possible. It is a small trade but championships are built on small trades:
Buffalo trades Josh Gorges (retain 50%) and 2018 2nd to Boston for Kevan Miller.
The are only 3 years difference in age 32 v 29 respectively.
Their ice time is almost identical: EvS 18:48 v 17:47 and SH 2:40 v 2:00 with Gorges getting more of each. Neither gets much PP time 1:35 and 3:14 minutes for the year respectively
Gorges cap is $3,900,000 for 1 yr, Miller is $2,500,000 for 3 yr.
Gorges does not score as much as Miller pts 6 v 13
Boston only has 2 L-D, Buffalo only has 2 R-D.

11 Jul 2017 04:46:01
Why do you need feedback so badly? It's not that bad of a trade as you can see by the response (believables, un)

This isn't a real trade, or are you the real Tim Murray?

Idk why this means so much to you to repost it twice just to get a response.

11 Jul 2017 13:57:58
Maybe this is how the Sabres really make trades?! Tim Murray goes on multiple forums and hopes fans will talk him out of mistakes lol.

11 Jul 2017 15:44:23
For my honest opinion on the trade tho, Boston likes kevan Miller enough to let the much younger Colin Miller be exposed when they could only protect one of the two. They were willing to take that age gap hit for the positives in his game but don't see them taking another 3 year age hit unless it's a much better player who happens to be older. That's just not the case with josh georges.

11 Jul 2017 17:18:22
Unbiased Jim and TB3, thank you. I want to propose trades that are equal and the only way to do that is to get the sort of feedback that you provided. From what you two are saying the trade is close but Boston would not make it. That makes perfect sense.

11 Jul 2017 17:24:27
I only wish Tim had asked about trades, he would never have traded McNaab and 2 2nds for players who are bottom 6 forwards, He would have Spooner from Boston and Pearson from LAK. I am so glad he is gone. He took a last place team with a future and made it a last place team with no future.

08 Jul 2017 19:04:48
Buffalo trades Josh Gorges (retain 50%) and 2018 2nd to Boston for Kevan Miller.

08 Jul 2017 23:50:21
why is that trade unbelievable?

11 Jul 2017 00:44:45
miller is better, georges hates boston.

12 Jul 2017 01:01:43
Boston doesn't need more old guys on the point. They still have some vets (Chara, Krug, McQuaid) but they have a nice youth injection coming up with McCavoy, Carlo, Zboril, Lauzon etc, I don't think value if off just no from Boston/ pass on Gorges.

05 Jul 2017 18:18:11
Boston: Brandon Carlo,Jake Debrusk and Matt Belesky (cap)

Colorado: Matt Duchene

Boston: Matt Duchene provides an Elite Preseance and is still young.

Colorado: gets a 20 year old top 4 dman that can play 20 min a night from Colorado and jake Debrusk who could be a very effective player.

Maybe also.

Boston: David Krejic

Montreal: Galchenyuk

Boston-gets a young top 6 forward who already has a 30 goal season behind his back. Could be Elite.

Montreal- Self explantory

05 Jul 2017 18:55:05
Nylander, You're VB aren't you? Can't remember now.

05 Jul 2017 19:06:27
Krejic has a no movement clause for another season or two i think before he gets a modified no trade clause.

05 Jul 2017 20:54:54
I know krejci probably brings a few more things to the table then galchenyuk but I would think the habs would be better off keeping galchenyuk for less money with pretty much the same offensive production.

05 Jul 2017 22:23:19
Why would you trade a young 2c 30 goal scorer for David krejci an old 2c who just had hip surgery and did not play well last year. That's a solid no.

05 Jul 2017 23:49:55
TraderBro - because he is not a young 2c he's a young too 6 winger.

06 Jul 2017 04:35:01
Chuck is more of a c than nylander. True story.

06 Jul 2017 06:06:15
Yes? Nylander is mathews wing? and he out produced a 23 year old chuck as an 19 year old rookie.

06 Jul 2017 17:58:53
Krejci for chuck? No from habs and bigggggg no from Boston.

06 Jul 2017 19:01:30
Nylander your trades are horrible and also what's your point about nylander out producing Galchenyuk? The guy had an injury and played 61 games and got 44 points that would of been 59 points in the same amount of game as nylander and also nylander played with Matthews almost the entire year while Galchenyuk played with players like shaw, plekanec, Byron, Mitchell, Ott, King. Trade bro said that chuck is more of a center than Nylander and you replied by saying that nylander out produced chuck? krejci for chuck? That's just a joke It's like saying Brian little for nylander!

06 Jul 2017 22:27:03
Alikhan, Traderbro brought up William Nylander in a conversation about krejci and galchenyuk but agree with what you said. Unfair comparison. But Nylander only played with Matthews half the year. He also spent time on all other lines including the fourth for a cpl week stretch.

Babcock says Nylander is a centre long term but Bozak Has a year left. Galchenyuk has been given years to grab that spot and hasn't done it. Nylander hasn't got a chance to be a centre at the NHL level but excelled at it everywhere else.

07 Jul 2017 04:57:31
if I was bergevine, I would call the cannuk, oiler, wild, GM and these is how the call go, hi this is marc, you know earlier when I called you on a centerman, youwanted the moon, so are you ready to trade draisaitl or I'LL send him and offer sheet, i still have 14mil, or a plan b plek straight up for rnh, and I'LL leave draisaitl alone ;next call wild Gm same type of call Mikael Gramlund, offer a plan b plek for stall habs well keep the salary difference between the two players, the call to vancouver is about bo horvat, trade or offer sheet, . I will get a c1 for my team oneway or the other.

07 Jul 2017 05:32:57
Greg! No you won't! They just match the offer sheet. Plans over. Or to make sure they don't match you offer Sheet granlund at way over what he's worth, like 8 mill+ and then you give the Wild multiple first round picks for him in compensation and you really believe mikael granlund is the solution to habs lacking a big top line centre? Might as well give galchenyuk and drouin another shot at it.

If GMs got bullied that easily and caved, a lot more star players would trade hands during a career. Doesn't happen in the real world.

07 Jul 2017 14:46:38
You're wrong Nylander played on Kadris line with Komarov.
Remember Hyman-Mathews-Brown.

08 Jul 2017 15:21:57
if I was Bergevine, I would call the cannuk, oiler, wild GMs. These is how the phone call would go, "Hi this is marc, you know earlier when I called you on a centerman, you wanted the moon, so are you ready to trade draisaitl or I'LL send him and offer sheet, i still have 14 mil to play with, but look Pete I'll give you and option a plan b, Plek straight up for RNH, and I'LL leave draisaitl alone ; next call wild Gm, HI Chuck same type of phone call as the oiler trade Mikael Gramlund, or I'll offer sheet but like with Pete there is a plan b Plek for Stall habs well keep the salary difference between the two players, the call to vancouver is about bo horvat, trade or offer sheet, . I will get a c1 for my team oneway or the other. BUT the Stall is one of the best option because Stall will teach galchenyuk how to be a c1,


09 Jul 2017 14:32:23
the thought is to see if you could trade for a player by going after there good young player if they do not want to dance, bergy has been nice with his GM brothers, and yes he could have gotten Eric Stall, last year, and I firmly believe it will take a Stall like player for Galchenyuk to learn how to be a NHL c1, and there is some trades last year you wondered about, and all us fans heard is they wanted juulsen and sergachev, and gramlund is a upgrade on almost all our centermen, and offer sheet of 7mill Gramlund,8-8.5 for daisaitl but again the thought is trade Plek for RNH, OR STALL and keep your 14mill.

09 Jun 2017 06:15:37
A pre-expansion draft trade that can benefit both teams

To BOS: Jonas Brodin

To MIN: 18th overall and Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson

Boston solidifies their d core once Chara retires:

Krug - Carlo
Brodin - McAvoy
Zobril - Miller (C or K?)

Minnesota recoups a first rounder after that horrible Hanzel trade and gets another promising prospect that could play C or RW (also the Bruins cannot offer Spooner since the Wild would be unable to protect him)

09 Jun 2017 10:48:40
This could be me but I think the bruins would need to add just a bit more.

09 Jun 2017 14:42:08
Good trade, wouldn't be surprised if this happens.

11 Jun 2017 18:20:56
No from Minnesota.

05 Jun 2017 23:54:03
Bruins give - spooner or varento
Red wings give - helm , maybe 2018 5th

Bruins get big fast!! second line man
Red wings get a young top forward who needs a new home instead of getting nothing

06 Jun 2017 08:27:29
Is Helm an UFA now? Or one year left.

07 Jun 2017 02:59:32
He's got 3 years left on his current contract.

05 Jun 2017 17:49:06
Blue jackets give-

Bruins give - 2nd, and subban

Simple that blue jackets goalie is better, blue jackets get a second and bruins get their back up goalie
Blue jackets will lose him in expansion draft

05 Jun 2017 19:26:27
Blue jackets won't lose him in expansion.

05 Jun 2017 19:58:51
jackets will lose savard/ johnson not korpisalo.

07 Jun 2017 03:00:55
Blue jackets can only protect one goalie- you are saying that vegas isn't going to scoop up an elite young goalie.

05 Jun 2017 16:47:53

Bruins get - helm , maybe 5th Rounder

Red wings get - spooner or varento

Wings will probably lose helm in the draft, why not get a young top forward who just needs a new home to

Bruins get a top second line player . He's 28 but he's big ish and super super fast

07 Jun 2017 15:15:07
In what world is helm a 2nd line player?

04 Jun 2017 02:24:33
Boston: Debrusk, 1st round pick

Philadelphia: Schenn, 3rd round pick

Thoughts on the value?

04 Jun 2017 12:21:15
I'm keeping Schenn on the Flyers.

04 Jun 2017 15:10:22
Would rather keep Schenn.

04 Jun 2017 23:13:59
I'd stay with Schenn.

31 May 2017 19:48:36
Boston gets - Bordin , Mike Reily

Wild get - belesky , Hayes , 2nd, c. Miller ?

I'm trying to figure out s good trade for both sides because both sides will atleast lose one player in this offer and I want both sides to get something for them

01 Jun 2017 02:12:08
Mike Reilly's dad is an owner of the wild. That's why he's there, I doubt he goes anywhere.

01 Jun 2017 12:41:57
Even if that Reilly thing didn't matter - there is no way two cap dumps, a mediocre defenseman and a 2nd get you Brodin and Reilly.
