Dallas adds plenty.

Buffalo Trades
2nd Round Pick 2016

Toronto Trades

When the Leafs Traded for Kessel they gave Boston 2 1st Round Picks and a 2nd Round Pick which turned into Seguin, DHamilton, and Knight.
SReinhart and Ristolainen are 2 Former 1st Round Picks and when you add the 2nd Rounder its getting back what you Traded for in the first place, which if you are the Leafs you would insist on, Buffalo has taken a huge step in being a good Team this year and in the future, adding a Top Scoring Winger in Kessel is something Buffalo should look into, they are so deep at Centre that this actually makes sense for the Sabres and makes sense for the Leafs.
I see a Deal just like this going down if Kessel agrees to waive his NTC to make it happen.


30 Jun 2015 14:23:16
ristolainen is un touchable since he is their future number 1 dman reinhart is a former number 2 pick and I believe he is also untouchable also this is a huuuuuuuuuuuuge overpayment by buffalo

30 Jun 2015 14:38:31
It wouldn't happen, even if it was only for Reinhart or Ristolainen, who both project as elite players

30 Jun 2015 16:46:35
Toronto doesn't have the D (maybe Reilly) to stop/catch Kessel, trading to Buffalo is just too close to home' great deal but it would keep Buffalo winning easily over the Leafs for the next 5+years.

Send Phil to the cap clearing Ducks, Hawks are losing Sharp, Richards, Oduya and hopefully another team steals Saad. Now is the Ducks time to strike.

C.Fowler, R.Rackel & 3rd round pick for Kessel & 4th round pick.

30 Jun 2015 21:16:08
BUF wouldn't do either Ristolainen OR Reinhart straight up so stop this bs.

30 Jun 2015 22:18:20
anaheim issue is defense and goaltending lol they don't need a top winger

01 Jul 2015 02:22:22
This is so bad, jsut aweful. No wonder Leafs fans get the name they have. Wow

30 Jun 2015 05:43:32
To Boston: J. Schultz & Yakupov & T. Pitlick
To Edmonton: L. Eriksson & DeBrusk & M. Jones

30 Jun 2015 07:44:26
Oilers say no.

30 Jun 2015 08:01:42
Oilers just got Talbot, why would they then trade for Jones as well?

30 Jun 2015 11:13:25
Agree no, but from Boston.

30 Jun 2015 14:55:00
While yakupov has not yet lived up to his potential, there is still a great chance he will turn into an elite sniper. Why would Edmonton part with a former 1 overall pick for that package

29 Jun 2015 22:08:07
Sabres trade rights to Pat Kaleta Andre Benoit Andrej Meszaros and Tyson Strachan to Boston for 2016 1st

Sharks trade John Scott to Boston for Patrice Bergeron

29 Jun 2015 23:44:26
John Scott is in his prime; no way SJS makes that trade. Nice name by the way.

30 Jun 2015 00:58:07
With the way Don Sweeney is making trades I wouldn't doubt he would accept that.

30 Jun 2015 01:16:15
funny, or not. why waste space?

30 Jun 2015 02:25:32
Some people just shouldn't have computers. They try to be funny and fail miserably.

29 Jun 2015 22:00:06
Gryba and Reinhart aren't enough. Edmonton needs defence.

Edmonton should go after a veteran defender who can teach Klefbom , Nurse and Reinhart play defence.

BOS: Chara

EDM: 2nd 2016,3rd 2016

I know Chara is aging and his years in the NHL are almost to an end but he was great playing with Hamilton and he could do the same with Klefbom , Nurse and Reinhart.

Any Team: 4th

EDM: Ference


Andrei Sekera @ 2 Years (4 mill per)


Nikita Nikitin

Edmonton's Defence next year:


Let Nurse (and maybe Reinhart) go to the minors and develop further. They should also let him and Reinhart play with Chara from time to time.

30 Jun 2015 00:09:06
Really not enough for chara but with Sweeney you never know

30 Jun 2015 00:39:53
Then y did they trade for reinhart for him to be in the minors again

30 Jun 2015 00:59:16
I don't think they're moving Chara after trading Hamilton but I guess you don't really know with Sweeney.

30 Jun 2015 03:57:15
Klefbom, Reinhart, Nurse are all left, that's some great depth. We need to upgrade on the right side. Schultz is a top 4, better suited for second pairing, but Fayne and Gryba are both bottom pairing d. If we can sign a top pair righty and all the young guys are ready for the NHL we'll have some promising defence.

29 Jun 2015 20:44:12
Bruins picked up Zac Rinaldo for a 3rd in 2017

29 Jun 2015 21:26:42
Yeah not off to a good start… could look like a genius in the future but right now… Yikes

30 Jun 2015 01:54:16
Then Talbot demands a trade! Ahaha hopefully Rask and Bergeron are next. What a disaster. Rinaldo isn't even worth a 5th! W. T. F. Is up with Boston. Trade for 13,14,15 picks and take two guys who aren't even projected to go in the first round! Then trade your 3rd for the Wilds 3rd next year. What is the point of that?! Unreal. I get why they felt they needed to move Hamilton, could have got more tho. And then trade Lucic as well? So stupid.

29 Jun 2015 17:46:36
BOS trades Loui Eriksson to
BUF for Markus Foligno, Cody Hodgson, Matt Moulson and Nick Baptiste
Foligno takes on the role of Lucic and playing with Bergeron or Krejci may make Boston forget about Lucic. Hodgson has proven that he could score 20 or more goals with decent line mates and could take Eriksson in the line up. Moulson also playing with Bergeron or Krejci could return to his 30 goals per year performance. Eriksson give BUF that top RW needed to fill out their top 6 (O'Reilly, Eichel, Reinhart, Kane, Ennis and Eriksson)

29 Jun 2015 18:35:03
Hodgson has proved he can score 20 goals? When? Where? The OHL? If he was a 20 goal scorer they wouldn't be buying him out dude.

29 Jun 2015 19:46:23
Boston already has cap trouble and you wanna trade 4.25mil for over 11mil. and you return for errikson is ridiculous

29 Jun 2015 20:23:22
Thanks for the feedback. I know that Chiarelli was shopping Eriksson I do not know if Sweeney is doing the same. Maybe if Murray held back some of Hodgson salary and replaced Moulson with a pick or an another prospect?

@Shootsmcgee I completely forgot about the cap, that was a real brain fart on my part. I wonder though if Foligno would be a good fit in Boston?

@Stammer2Leafs2016 Hodgson scored 16 goals in 63 games for Van in '11-'12, 15 goals in 48 games for Buf in '12-'13 and 20 goals in '13-'14 in 72 games. So prior to the lost season with (butt)head coach Ted Nolan, he scored .29 g/gm over a 3 year period (Loui over his career scores .28 g/gm) or 23 goals/82 games and he has never had a center as Krejci nor Bergeron to play with.

As I said above, I thought this trade could work for Boston, giving them two young players.

29 Jun 2015 09:23:35
Kevin besika to San Jose for a 2016 3rd and 2016 4th

Chris Higgins and Linden Vey to Boston for a 2016 2nd

Sven Baertschi
Jacob Markstrom
Adam Clendening
Frank Corrado
Ryan Stanton
Yannik Weber
Brandon McMillan

Ex:McMillan Kenins



29 Jun 2015 10:14:32
Nucks declined a 2016 2nd at the draft

30 Jun 2015 00:31:39
I don't think Weber even has a QO yet! which sucks

30 Jun 2015 03:06:40
I would not trade vey

30 Jun 2015 10:10:48
Gaunce was moved to the wing last year. He could still play center, but he apparently uses his speed more on the wing.

28 Jun 2015 05:29:07
If i'm montreal I ask the price for bergy and rielly to Boston
Cause Calgary went Rob Ford on the bruins a total robery!
Ok Now
Pitt need d and jim rotherford trade to get lovejoy show how much is desprate

Mon: emelin
Pitt: sprong

Mon: parenteau,3rd
Toronto: lupul and braco
You get rid off 4 million after This year since parenteau contract end This summer and braco is insurance if lupul get injured

28 Jun 2015 08:17:24
Yea Pittsburgh and Toronto will take Montreals cap dumps and give you their newly drafted talent

28 Jun 2015 11:51:56
You never know with jimbo! Has for the leaf were dm doing you a favor taking lupul contract

28 Jun 2015 17:17:51
lupul is EASILY top 6 on the habs, top 6 players get top 6 money right?

soderberg just signed to be 3rd line center in colorado, for alomst 5 million per season.

5.25 isn't much for a top 6 over the next 3 seasons with the cap going up, puts him at 34 years old, not that old by hockey standards

28 Jun 2015 17:51:23
Sounds like PA is going to be bought out. Which is fine. Maybe let a younger guy like Thomas or Skerbac earn a spot .

28 Jun 2015 19:42:47
To be honest I think that andrigetho is ahead of thomas

26 Jun 2015 22:46:42
BOS: 3rd Overall
ARZ: 13th, 14th, 15th and Marc Savard

26 Jun 2015 23:10:48
To much just to move up by 10, take out a first and replace with one of the 3 2nd rd picks

26 Jun 2015 23:19:21
Gotta hope Boston says no to this those 3 picks could mean alot

27 Jun 2015 03:59:09
Marc Savard ahAhaha good lord that player don't even play anymore

27 Jun 2015 06:29:45
Word, TheNumbNut. three mid firsts can build a legacy!

27 Jun 2015 08:10:22
I thought Kessel was a CERTAINTY for 3rd overall? Dawson? You out there, you walking joke?

Actually, a lot of leafs fans said it would happen so I shouldn't oust just one goof.

27 Jun 2015 15:03:52
I did read that yesterday by somebody. I believe I replied that would never happen. Chirpy likes to group all of us together.

27 Jun 2015 17:38:52
Well, when the majority of you share the same ridiculous voice, it's pretty easy to overlook the sanity of one in amongst a pile of crazy. Admit it, leafs fans on here are loopy.

27 Jun 2015 18:58:22
^ I love the lack of complete logic in a statement like that. Winner winner

26 Jun 2015 21:52:52
Lucic is now an LA king.!

Bruins Trade - Lucic

Kings trade-(not confirmed) 2015 1st, Martin Jones & Prospect(s)

26 Jun 2015 22:54:30
I hate this so much!!

26 Jun 2015 23:20:15
KingsLover talking solely as Looch as a player I think you'll be pleased but cap/Off ice maybe not so much

27 Jun 2015 00:11:08
They retained almost half his salary

27 Jun 2015 06:28:39
Bruins have a history of knowing when to sell their stars and make good transaction deals,
but also to be mediocre on draft pics but better of late.
If this is still true. times are really interesting for the franchise!

28 Jun 2015 06:28:46
I know this happened and is very true. I still don't understand from an LA perspective why they would want Lucic when they have guys like Dustin Brown to play a physical game. They could have used defensive depth more, just saying.

01 Jul 2015 21:04:41
Yeah, I'm kinda surpriced too - bold move - must be aimin at pressing really high and hard the up coming season(s). a move they would not have made unless they really were pressing for an immediate aim at the cup.

Will they beat other teams on turn overs??

26 Jun 2015 21:18:47
Boston trades Hamilton
Calgary trades 1st round (15th overall) pick, 2nd round(45th overall) and 2nd round(52nd overall)

26 Jun 2015 23:28:11
Lol I love how people say no. I posted this trade after it happened to see if people would still say unbelievable

27 Jun 2015 02:23:13
It should be unbelievable. What are you doing Sweeney.

28 Jun 2015 06:29:44
That was a steal, Congrats Calgary. Boston, I am sorry for your loss. Congrats on having Don Sweeny as your GM Boston!!

26 Jun 2015 20:39:55
Huge trade

Dougie Hamilton is going to Alberta.

Bruins trade Dougie Hamilton

Flames Trade #15, #45 & #52.

What is Sweeney thinking? That is your future franchise Dman. I guess they are thinking tank?

Thoughts on this trade?

26 Jun 2015 21:00:22
they might try to use these picks and trade down? maybe Hanifin? Doubt it, but that's the only reason I think Sweeney did this. He might have another trade in the works. If not, it was a really dumb trade. I guess the Kessel trade doesn't look so bad now.

26 Jun 2015 21:05:33
saw this all day on twitter - Great trade for Calgary!

26 Jun 2015 21:08:01
Ikr I woulve asked for at least 2 1sts

26 Jun 2015 21:08:59

26 Jun 2015 21:15:28
I can't believe how stupid Don Sweeney is. So many other contracts and players to get rid of before Hamilton. Good on Brad Treliving and the Flames.


Phil Kessel

Reilly Smith
Joe Morrow
Loui Eriksson
Zack Phillips
1st Round Pick 2015(15)
2nd Round Pick 2015(45)
2nd Round Pick 2015(52)

26 Jun 2015 21:22:03
Yea if sweeney doesn't have any other plans Boston is in trouble

26 Jun 2015 21:31:49
I'd rather have Seguin and Hamilton than all that. Neither Toronto or Boston won

27 Jun 2015 04:09:22
Well, let's see. if Hamilton is signed to an offer sheet, Boston most likely gets a first, second and a third rounder. As it stands, they couldn't afford his demands so doing it this way, they got a first and two seconds. How is that not a win?

27 Jun 2015 06:47:09
I believe that the Bruins really wanted to keep Dougie, but simply did not wan't to put themselves in a salary situation that is spining out of control. rumours of Dougies salary have spun from 4,5 to 8m/year and the latter is just a dangerous road to walk, giving him the best salary on the team and lockin him up on that deal for 8 years, relatively unproven in terms of defensive skills!?! Bruins have admitted that they have made too bad contract deals of late and salary has always been a way for teams with less appeal to attract players.

27 Jun 2015 13:39:09
Dougie wanted out, plain and simple, by not getting a cheap roster player along with the picks is where Sweeney failed.

1st, 2nd, 2nd, M.Ferland for D.Hamilton & conditional pick (long term contract signed, no pick included)

27 Jun 2015 17:28:59
I bet Calgary signs him to a reasonable contract.

6.5/ 6yrs

28 Jun 2015 08:08:22
Wonder if Bruins turn eyes to active roster improvements on free agency!

26 Jun 2015 06:11:08
No From Col

26 Jun 2015 06:13:15
Doesn't seem bad but even though O'reilly only has one year left he'll get at least one significant piece back.

26 Jun 2015 06:14:24
Zero chance Harkins is available at 42. He is almost certainly gone after the 1st round. Merkley at 21 is also quite unlikely. After his Memorial Cup, I could see him in the top 15.

26 Jun 2015 13:41:02
Merkley at 21 is more likely than Harkins at 42, tho.

25 Jun 2015 23:52:57
Confirmed trade via

Boston: Carl Soderberg
Colorado: 6th round pick in 2016

26 Jun 2015 13:30:38
I love how it's an actual trade that actually happened. It's stated in the post. Still gets half unbelievable

26 Jun 2015 14:40:30
And now he's getting paid almost $5 mil per yer for the next 5 years

26 Jun 2015 05:09:53
No to all of them.

25 Jun 2015 19:46:04
Penguins trade malkin
Bruins trade: rights to Hamilton, lucic, 1st 2015, 1st2016, 2nd 2015

25 Jun 2015 22:56:44
We have Krejci Bergeronand and Spooner as our top 3 centres why would we give up so much for Malkin? This trade is terrible for Boston.

26 Jun 2015 04:10:12
It's way too much for Malkin but guaranteed Krecji is involved in that trade as a Malkin replacement. Personally Hamilton has crazy high value and Krecji+Hamilton could get Malkin

24 Jun 2015 19:37:23
Oils trade: 16th overall pick
Bruins trade: rights to douggie Hamilton

24 Jun 2015 20:02:14
Boston could get more in a offer sheet, Eberle would interest them.

23 Jun 2015 20:24:34
Kessel Back to Boston

TOR: Eriksson, Krug, Kelly (Cap Dump), 14th Overall pick
BOS: Kessel

what do you guys think fair? or not?

23 Jun 2015 22:51:32
Ok, again. (and I'll try to be constructive despite my bias as a B's fan). Kessels value may be high, even despite his work ethic flaws and high salary, but in my opinion the 14th pick alone is more valuable to Boston than Kessel is! They are standin before a rebuild and thus I also see Krug as a definite stayer in Boston, but Eriksson and Kelly is expendable. though bottom line is, I don't want Kessel back and I underline twice. Boston is hardly keen on him at all. If he's so valuable keep him for gods sake!!

23 Jun 2015 23:07:17
Bunch of old guys and a decent prospect not a great one and a mid round 1st, how does this help Toronto?

23 Jun 2015 23:11:58

24 Jun 2015 01:28:23
Take out Krug or Eriksson.

24 Jun 2015 03:32:18
I don't see Boston going after a player like Phil Kessel. Until they Lock up Dougie Hamilton. Even after that they have Lucic that they'll need to resign after July 1st.

24 Jun 2015 03:37:44
fair but doesn't help the leafs as much as it could in terms on future prospects, on the other hand almost an overpayment by boston, erikson and kelly are the money coming back but the intangibles they bring is invaluble to a coach like babcock. leafs would do it in a heart beat because guys like erikson and kelly in their twilight could help the kids huge for the next 2 years.

doubt boston would do it, doubt the leafs would do it,

but not bad.

24 Jun 2015 06:09:09
Doesn't seem to bad to me

22 Jun 2015 21:13:56
Toronto should be doing what Edmonton is, except with their players. Replacing everyone.

Most of Toronto's players don't give one hundred percent anymore, and that happened since the playoff loss to Boston.

What I think:

Bruins: Stuart Percy, Tyler Biggs, 2015 1st (nashville)
Leafs: Milan Lucic

Lucic is a big and physical guy that can help the Toronto Maple Leafs in getting some character.
Meanwhile Boston clears out a LOT of cap.

To Penguins: 2015 1st (4th overall)
To Leafs: Beau Bennet, Scott Harrington, Olli Maata,Tristan Jarry, Sutter, 2017 (conditional 1st)

Penguins need a change.
They barely made the playoffs this year.
They can get a GREAT player with the 4th overall.
Leafs get a still young forward that can turn out to be a 2nd liner. A defenceman that can play on th top 6 in 2015-16. And their potential top 2.

22 Jun 2015 22:20:59
I stopped reading after the 1st trade but that isn't even close to enough quality coming back for Lucic.

22 Jun 2015 22:49:16
That leafs-pens trade is awful for Toronto. Better off keeping the pick

22 Jun 2015 22:53:16
Huge overpayment by Pittsburgh.

23 Jun 2015 01:03:47
Leafs are rebuilding not going for a cup run. They won't make these trades

23 Jun 2015 01:23:30
Keep adding until you finally realize that Lucic would NEVER agree to a trade to Toronto. good try though. lol
