Some idiot suggested this trade and th mojority of people believed it was in Torontos favour.

TOR - Bozak, Carrick, Timashov, 2nd


ARI - Dvorak, Stone

Personally I think this is an over payment. Dvorak isn't such a can't miss prospect that the leafs should give up Boazak (Who i believe the leafs could possibly receive a first for at the trade deadline), Carrick who is a top 4 D man, Timashov who is a top prospect and a 2nd.

I wouldn't do it, what do you guys think?


1.) 07 Feb 2017 02:05:19
I would not trade Timoshov imo he will be better then Nylander and Marner.

2.) 07 Feb 2017 02:08:31
Carrick a top for d man and timashov a top prospect is a joke. Doesn't make sense for Arizona as the main price they get back is a 30 year old.

3.) 07 Feb 2017 02:24:47
You are delusional if you think that gets Dylan stroke and dovark.

4.) 07 Feb 2017 03:31:42
Uh yeah Toronto wins that trade by a mile. Bozak getting a first round? My god man.

5.) 07 Feb 2017 03:51:33
It's not Dylan stroke (Strome) it's Michael stone. And saying timashov will be better than marner is rediculous. Timashov is older than marner, and putting up a point every 3+ games in the AHL. Marner is near a point a game in the NHL. Nylanders game has grown already in a half season to being less one dimensional. Leafs take that deal. Losing carrick is the hardest piece because they are weak on D and he's only 22 or 23 and showing good promise.

6.) 07 Feb 2017 04:03:01
It's mark STONE he never said strome. Come on.

7.) 07 Feb 2017 04:32:46
Timashov better than Marner or Nylander? I really need to study the up and coming to the NHL. I think he means Michael Stone toasty.

8.) 07 Feb 2017 05:07:49
If Bozak was a UFA I think he'd get a first from a contender. But don't be throwing top 4 D around so lightly. And Dvorak has done more than Timashov in every league. So as far as prospects and picks in this trade I think Arizona would just stick with Dvorak. And if there to trade Stone they'd probably want a young piece back not Bozak.

9.) 07 Feb 2017 15:27:06
Mark stone plays for Ottawa not Arizona

It's Dvorak and Michael Stone. 26 year old right handed D man on Arizona. UFA at seasons end.
No Strome, No stroke. No Mark Stone. Come on.

10.) 07 Feb 2017 18:28:40
This might actually make a lot of sense for TML but I like Carrick + I'm not sure how big of a upgrade Stone is. Timashov is a good prospect, not a top prospect and Carrick is not a proven top 4dman. The leafs defence is just that bad after Rielly/ Gardiner/ Zaitsev.

How do you guys think a Jvr for Lindholm trade could look?

Jvr, Dermott, 3rd
Lindholm, Bieksa

with bernier's salary coming off the books it won't be too huge a problem to resign him in the off season.

What do you guys think, are the leafs and ducks suitable partners?


1.) 18 Oct 2016 19:36:08
First off i don't think Toronto will want Kevin Bieksa he is 35 and not worth his 4 million for the next 2 yrs.

I think JVR + 2nd would get Lindholm get rid of the trimmings. ANH could use jvr to balance out their top three lines.

2.) 18 Oct 2016 19:45:56
I added Bieksa because currently the ducks have 0.350m in cap space without adding lindholm's not yet signed contract, so they need to move out salary first.

3.) 18 Oct 2016 21:27:47
Pretty awful for Anaheim. They would want far more than a winger only under team control for two more years and an average defensive prospect for a top 15 defenseman (in my opinion) at 22 years old. Lindholm is pretty much off the table.

4.) 19 Oct 2016 00:22:34
Not bad but no from Anaheim. Fowler will be moved before Lindholm. Also who would you rather have? Lindholm future number 1 D man for the next 10-15 years or 2 years of JVR and have him walk in free agency?

5.) 19 Oct 2016 03:00:12
Yeah JVR + 2nd isn't close to what will get Lindholm.

Dallas - Niemi, Nichushken, Oleksiak

TB - Bishop

Havn't made a trade proposal in a while

Dallas have a monster team but their goalie situation keeps them from being contenders imo. I think bishop can make a difference

Niemi is to even the cap and give tb a back-up, Nuke hasn't lived up to his potential and has been a bit disappointing in his first few years, however I can see him flourishing playing on a line with stammer and killorn or even playing him with johnson and palat if kuch plays on the top line. Oleksiak is a monster 6'7, 260 lbs defenceman, he's shown he is able to play in the nhl in his callups the past 2 years w/ dallas but he isn't going to score you many points.

What you guys think?

like Pinball says:


1.) 07 Sep 2016 20:15:07
Depends on what Tampa thinks of Nichushkin.

2.) 07 Sep 2016 20:31:21
Idk, but if I was Tampa and taking on neimis salary unretaind I would want quite a bit more than what bishop is worth for him, like maybe add faska as well if tampas taking on neimi?

3.) 07 Sep 2016 22:35:31
Tampas biggest issue is cap. I can't see them taking on much cap past this season in a Bishop deal.

4.) 07 Sep 2016 22:43:59
The longer Tampa holds onto Bishop the less they will get imo. Stars would have to retain on Nemo but it's a good offer.

5.) 08 Sep 2016 00:20:37
I forgot to retain on niemi woops, and as BJ said the longer they hold onto him the less they get unless they want to let him go for free.

6.) 08 Sep 2016 04:26:59
If Niemi/ Lehtonen are involved and I think that would work best, then I think Callahan/ Filpula would need to be added.

7.) 08 Sep 2016 17:04:54
Dont rule out the possibility of SY riding things out with Bish, going all in for the cup. that's what he did with not trading Stamkos last year, too. I'd rather have another cup run with Bishop than get a meh return on him (especially taking on money for next season aka Niemi would be stupid) .

Also, Bishop could work as an expansion shield for TB. If he gets claimed by LV, Killorn/ Namestnikov and Koekkoek/ Sustr are safe from being claimed, since LV can't claim more than 1 per team.

So at the end of the day, keep in mind, whatever package TB gets, it has to be worth more than the chance to win the cup with Bish plus the chance to retain all those 4 players above.



27 Apr 2016 18:01:46
This is probably going to be very much in the leafs favour and completely out of the realm of possibility but I've been having a really hard time choosing between laine and matthews. so why not get both? see its completely out there haha, but what do you guys think it would take

JVR, Pitts 1st, 2nd, Timashov

2nd ovr (whoever it is)

dont judge me on this one haha, i'm just dreaming.


1.) 27 Apr 2016 19:06:06
It would likely cost us Marner, Nylander or Rielly.

2.) 27 Apr 2016 19:35:10
I would substute any prospect for timoshov he will be a beast. And no from the other team.

3.) 27 Apr 2016 19:49:31
why not just leave it in the dream?

4.) 27 Apr 2016 19:49:31

Van - Shinkaruk for Calgary - Markus Granlund



1.) 22 Feb 2016 23:04:50
Tbh terrible trade for Vancouver. Really thought that Shinkaruk would be a nice fit for them in the future, but guess not. lol.

2.) 22 Feb 2016 23:34:43
Fire benning.

3.) 22 Feb 2016 23:35:26
If your trying to tank. You don't trade your prospects.

4.) 22 Feb 2016 23:50:10
I still have trouble figuring that one. Does Vancouver just want to load up at centre?

L.a. - Sekera

Carolina - L.a. first round pick, and roland Mckeown

what a steal for Carolina wow.




25 Feb 2015 16:37:02
man. I have no idea what detroit can do to improve other than get a top 4 rhd. they have good depth, they have howard and mrazek to back him up.
Also Z just went down with a concussion (daammm) maybe they should egt some top 6 help even a 1st line forward. unless they wanna roll with abelkaider on the first line (nope) they have gus. yeah but he isn't 1st line material yet. I think sharp could play well, but that b.s. he's not leaving chi after kaners injury. any suggestions? also has there been an update on
zetterbergs injury? and his time out?




25 Feb 2015 16:33:10
what about kessel to chicago xD kaner just went down, how much would it take for chicago to get him (obviously will nevver happen so don't freak out at the idea. )




23 Feb 2015 09:29:42
Out of all the teams in the nhl I think Tampa has the best future. they have the best prospects. they have stamkos, hedman bishop/vasilevsky and possibly they best forwards core in the entire nhl. their defence could definitely be improved but in all I definitely see them winning a few cups in the near future. they have depth, leadership, youth. everything u could ask for in a team. and they have yzerman best gm in the league outside of holland ^__^


1.) Tampa is real good team with a solid core and some decent prospects.but considering drouin and vasilievsky are already in the nhl I would find it hard to believe the rest of the prospect crop would be even in the top 10 of the league with regards to team rankings.thats not a knock against tampa but there are a lot of teams with better prospects imo.anaheim Detroit nyi etc

2.) 24 Feb 2015 08:30:23
Even leaving Vasi and Drouin out, I still think Tampas prospects are top 5, easily.
To what BigZ said: The only thing I feel TB lacks is toughness. We'd need a downie or chris neil type of player. Able to play the game while chiping in 20-40 points a year, but also able to fight when necessary, to protect guys like Stamkos or the triplets.
And, as you basically said, one very good stay at home tough D men.
Hedman and Sustr are both so tall and heavy, they should really learn to use their size and weight for some useful hits.

3.) @draisaitil agree to disagree I guess lol

4.) A team built around A star defenceman (Headman) and a star center (Stamkos)
Throw in Droun, Johnson, kucherov, callahan and Bishop, this team looks dangerous moving forward

If the leafs tank and get lucky with the lottery, Reilly/mcdavid would be very similar to what TB has as a core.
Throw in: Kadri, Nylander, JVR, Bernier (prospects they get from kessel, lupul, phaneuf)

The leafs could be in good shape sooner rather than later moving forward.

5.) @Draisaitl_94 I see Erne being that guy for you guys. Decent size and can score. I can see him becoming that 3rd liner who agitates, hits, and scores for you guys.

6.) 25 Feb 2015 11:51:53
@MG: Yeah, that's a very good thought. Only problem is, he isn't ready yet. Prolly not for next year, either, considering how carefully Yzerman tends to develop his talents.
I was looking for someone to help THIS playoffs, but for the future, you're definitely right.

7.) Stewart could probably be had. Big, throws bombs, hits, and can pot one every now and than. High cap hit, would be gone to FA at end of the season.



23 Feb 2015 09:24:30
How much would it take to get jones out of l.a. Or subban out of boston. same as l.a. Got in that bernier trade?


1.) Noooo La got ripped ok that bernier trade I am not sure as I don't watch much west teams but I would say probably a top 4 defencemen

2.) ^ IDK about that, the goalie market just is not that strong.

Also Jones and Subban are begind the best goalies in the NHL. Its hard to get them playing time and showcase them.

as a leafs fan I would rather trade gardiner for a better dman than brodin if he is traded at all. and personally I'm not sure brodin is worth a 1st,3rd and bracco in the first place. he has a career, 0.247 ppg and a career high of 25 points with 21 points last year. is he a good dman? Sure, but i'd rather put our pieces into a better dman. I understand the value of him being 3 yrs younger and 3 years term (nice good contract i will admit) but I definitely would rather have one year of gardiner+1st+3rd+bracco than brodin.

hope that wasn't too biased haha.

thats pretty close I like it, especially the part where lee+pulock wouldn't even get you panarin much less adding murray.

The only defenceman better than gardiner right now is Jones (one of the best in the league), werenski is going to better than gardiner i'm sure but you can't say that columbus can't use a 50 pt puck moving dman. having werenski+jones on the first line with gardiner+murray/ savard on the 2nd pair is an amazing top 4.
Connor brown makes almost ever top 9 in the league and is a really good two way player. and then there's the most likely late 1st. The team doesn't get much worse and gains a 1st

Thats a decent return for a pending ufa. ugh I don't like defending pinball.

Why is there an argument about nyquist on here.
after the leafs detroit is my second favourite team, nyquist really isn't that great highest points in season was 54, 4 years ago. he has had 40, 48, 43, 54, 48 over his past 5 years in the league. He is not worth a 1st as a bunch of guys on here are saying (could he get a return with one, honestly I wouldn't be surprised. i won't overestimate nhl gms)

on the the return, a 2nd + 3rd/ 4th probably gets him. With Lievo he easily makes the red wings top 9 (without nyquist) would you take any of glendenning/ bertuzzi/ frk over him? i sure as hell wouldnt. he doesn't fit on the leafs forwards core because they have at least 12 fwrds better than him.

I'd love for Det to get a 1st for nyquist but i'm not sur eit will happen. also why does nyquist fit on the leafs? the only forwards I take nyquist over are brown, ennis, lindholm who will most likely be tor's 4th line. (for what its worth nyquist is probably better than kapanen/ johnsson right now but i take that youth and upside over him our top 9)

Wow I just wasted my time on Gustav Nyquist. i swear he better get the wings a 1st now.

right that's a great comparison guys! (sarcasm) a center who hasn't put up a ppg or 30 goals for a few years and with a year remaining on his contract is soo very comparable to kessel a rw who is a ppg and 30+ goal scorer with 7 years remaining aslo kessel is turning 27 and spezza was traded when he was turning 31. so no I really don't see any good reasoning behind that comparison. also your saying he's one dimensional. well no ones buying him for his two play ability haha, elite goalscorers are of a rare comodity in the nhl nowadays. and that's why he's worth more (also spezza isn't a first line player anymore and kessel is a 1line rw. )

i agree he's not worth that much. but think, he's what 25. 26? and he's an rd, puts up good point totals and is 6'5. he's going to get paid big time way over what he's worth, just my opinion
