Just a thought. Would Draisaitl for Faulk & Rask/Lindholm be fair? Gives Carolina a #1 center and Edmonton the RD they need, plus a #3 center. I already know what FT4A will say, just wondering what normal Oiler fans would think.


1.) 21 Feb 2018 11:29:15
Looking at it again, maybe Draisaitl for Faulk, Lindholm plus? I don’t think Edmonton should trade Draisaitl at all but Carolina has some good assets to at least get Edmonton thinking.

2.) 21 Feb 2018 13:29:32
I think it would have to be lindholm Faulk and a pick for Draisatl.

3.) 21 Feb 2018 13:37:32
I be always been a fan OF Elias Lindholm and belief he still has the potential to become just as good or maybe better then Drai so big no from Canes. I think Drai' s stats are saturated and that If he played in Carolina he would be a 60 point player tops. Still good but Drai is like a Monahan you know? Do u trade Faulk and Linholm for Monahan? Nooo.

4.) 21 Feb 2018 15:12:27
It’s going to have to way more than that lol and no sorry Lindholm will never be just as good or better than Drat yikes man. And that comparison is whack lol.

5.) 21 Feb 2018 15:57:29
Oilers add, maybe Nurse, Yamamoto and 2018 1st.

6.) 21 Feb 2018 18:39:05

Austin Matthews for the crew you named instead seems more reasonable.

7.) 21 Feb 2018 20:03:23
Sorry oil fans. Trying to make your team better but that’s a monumental task. That is yet again a very original reply yup. FT4A, there is no crew in this league that could fetch an Oiler player is there? I guess you guys stick with 3 good centers and nothing else. Good luck with the tank job chirp.

8.) 21 Feb 2018 21:34:41
McJ and Ebs, please disregard any negative comments I make towards the oilers. I do like Edmonton and you guys seem ok. I really don’t think the Oilers should trade Draisaitl but they should be listening to every offer. Is there a package from Carolina you would accept?

9.) 21 Feb 2018 22:31:14
It’s not too bad I just think a lesser trade based around Nuge would be more realistic. I think Faulk and Nuge have closer values than Faulk and Draisaitl.

10.) 22 Feb 2018 00:17:58
Thanks Ebs. I think Faulk and Hopkins could be a one for one similar to Johansen and Jones. Maybe a small add somewhere. I do believe that Draisaitl has what it takes to bring in a top defenseman, top 6 forward and possibly more. You’re right about a Hopkins deal being more realistic but it doesn’t solve the winger issue. However, trading Draisaitl would hurt too much I’m guessing. I wouldn’t want to see him go if he was on my team.



10 Feb 2018 17:29:14
It's no secret the goaltending on Long island is a disgrace. What about making a move for Craig Anderson? His #'s are down this year but he is a much better goalie than Halak IMO. Anderson might just need a fresh start on a team battling for a playoff spot. Halak is a UFA so Ottawa can let him walk and address their goaltending in the off season. Also, Tavares has said he wants to see management doing everything they can to put together a winning team.

Anderson for Halak plus a 2nd or 3rd?


1.) 10 Feb 2018 19:10:31
I think that’s interesting but I’d think Ottawa would want a better return since they will be entering their full rebuild. But I also don’t know how much they value Anderson. But good post.

2.) 10 Feb 2018 21:09:02
Andys turning 37 in may, he's been a great goalie for a long time. it all comes down to how much gas he has left in the tank, personally I've been expecting this drop off for a season or two now because of his rising age. Wish ottawa did something with they're goaltending in the off season last year when all the fleurys and bishops were on the move, even all the jonathan berniers, mike smiths and brian elliotts. Too bad the sens couldn't have got in on that goalie carousel.

3.) 11 Feb 2018 00:44:14
Interesting . However. Sens Just offered him an extention so i don't think they're planning on trading him. Also i wouldn't love taking back back Halak if we're only getting a 2nd. but Andy would definitly help NYI.

4.) 11 Feb 2018 03:01:41
Thanks for the responses. I think Anderson has enough left in the tank to make a playoff run and he has 1 more year left I believe. I understand Hoff but Halak is a UFA so they don’t have to keep him. Maybe Halak and a 1st would be more appropriate? I didn’t look to see other UFA goalies this year but the money they save on Anderson could get a good goalie as well, plus the pick for a rebuild.

5.) 11 Feb 2018 14:05:47
Ottawa wouldn't want halak.

Maybe replace halak with Michael dal Cole. sure he looks like a bust now but maybe he just needs a change of scenery and ottawa might do it for him. i'd sooner take my chances on him than halak.



07 Jan 2018 20:19:41
I posted similar proposals a while back and got mixed reviews. With the position the Oilers are in I think the Leafs/Oilers could help each other. I'd really like to see the leafs have some more grit, especially if they make the playoffs. The Oilers could use more speed and talented wingers.

Kapanen, 2nd for Nurse?
Kapanen, Gardiner for Nurse, 3rd?

Are either of these fair? Oiler fans have said there is a lot of depth on LD, maybe they could give up Nurse to bring in Kapanen. In the 2nd trade they replace Nurse with a mobile defenseman and add Kapanen. I know the leafs are looking for a RH defenseman but IMO this will improve their team while waiting for Liljegren to develop.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 20:24:24
I mean if I had to choose one of the two it would clearly be the second one where Edmonton gets back Gardiner and Kapanen, and i'd personally do that in a heartbeat. Nurse is starting to look like a good player lately he’s one of the few bright spots for the oilers this year but I think oilers could benefit more from the way Gardiner plays which is way more offensive. And oilers have terrible prospect pool and Kapanen would be a nice addition with no RW depth.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 20:51:45
Lol. The Oilers aren't trading Nurse right now. If they were it would be in a package for a better D man coming back. Not a few smaller pieces.

3.) 07 Jan 2018 20:57:08
I would call for Chiarelis head if he made one of those trades.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 21:31:45
I’d also expect a better package but if I had to pick of the two for sure the second one imo.

5.) 07 Jan 2018 21:52:16
Yea Oilers gets fleeced.

6.) 07 Jan 2018 22:27:24
I just think Nurse is an immovable asset for the oilers.

7.) 07 Jan 2018 22:55:39
I’ll take Gardiner 10/ 10 times over Nurse but I’d do the 1st deal in a heartbeat.

8.) 08 Jan 2018 00:17:14
Nurse can easily get a better package

9.) 08 Jan 2018 00:54:59
Sorry yup, but Gardiner is not too bad either. I know points don’t mean everything but take a look at them when you get a chance. Call for Chiarelli’s head is a little dramatic like you usually are. Kapanen could skate circles around half of the forwards on your team right now. By the way, you tube Darnell Nurse fights and see if he ever takes the visor off. He fought Reaves, Shaw, Haley all while the other guy didn’t have a visor, with plenty of time to take it off. He must be a d bag like Kadri. No need to be one yourself cause it’s me posting. I could understand not wanting to move Nurse because he is one of your teams few bright spots, but don’t make it sound like he is a Drew Doughty or something. Craig Button had so many wonderful things to say about the Oilers, I thought maybe some speed up front and on defense would help. You’ve made 3 trade rumours in 5 years so tone it down a notch.

10.) 08 Jan 2018 01:13:17
Why do you just reply to me? What's with your small hard on for me man? 5 out of 6 people commented wouldn't trade Nurse for what you proposed. If Kapanen is so great then keep him, If I'm trading Nurse its in a deal that's upgrading him or for a legit top 6 winger. Not Kapanen.
Lmao. You're hilarious man.
I've never once hinted Nurse is like a Doughty, I'm not that stupid. You whine a lot towards me. You entertain me. These deals are terrible for Nurse, you're coming out ahead and you know it. That's why you posted.

11.) 08 Jan 2018 01:14:13
@McJ you changed your tune quite a bit after yup posted. No need to agree with your fearless leader all the time. You and Ebs are usually pretty solid Oiler fans. Maybe my proposal is off but like you originally said, Gardiner’s style of play could be what the Oilers need and Kapanen could be in most teams top 9.

12.) 08 Jan 2018 01:31:35
I think Gardiner is being undervalued here. Yup acting very dramatic and above all as usual.

13.) 08 Jan 2018 03:24:18
Gotta agree with leafs17 on this.

14.) 08 Jan 2018 03:53:28
I don't agree with leafs17

15.) 08 Jan 2018 04:21:48
You’re way off like usual chirp. Flamers and Key habs disagree, no problem. Pavelec thinks Nurse is an immovable piece which I can understand. McJ would take the deal with Gardiner “in a heart beat. ” (Oiler fan no? ) Nylander would take Gardiner over Nurse straight up. Where’s the 5 of 6 people? Are you looking at disagrees cause you should know how that works. Your comments to people are why you have people calling you out on a daily basis, not just myself. I think I explained why I posted the rumour. Toronto needs grit IMO, Oilers need speed. I also said they could help each other. The 2 players offered are good players, even though they wear blue and white. Maybe Edmonton should sit back and watch the season go by? Did you look up Nurse fights? Always a pleasure!

16.) 08 Jan 2018 04:55:52
It's not a rumor! It's your suggestion. Lol
And it's terrible! Nurse isn't available.

17.) 08 Jan 2018 05:06:05
When I commented 5/ 6 McJ, Keyhabs, Pavalec, Flamers and me said this was bad. You and Nylander said is was believable. Sorry, that's 5/ 7 if you include yourself.
5 out of 7 comments at that point said its bad for Edm.

They are decent players, I never said they weren't.
But the Oilers aren't making Nurse available for them. Chierelli would be run out of town instantly for it.

18.) 08 Jan 2018 05:58:15
Read McJ’s original reply again. You like to pick and choose what to read. You call keyhabs delusional on a regular basis but now he’s credible? No offence to him. Anyways, I thought it would help both teams. It’s not like I offered two grizzled veterans. Gardiner puts up respectable #’s every year and Kapanen has shown he can play. Both are young, smooth skaters. Your comment about keeping Kapanen if he’s so good shows you don’t have a clue. Teams trade from a position of strength. Just curious what you think they should do? Go for another 1st overall? There may only be one player on that team not available when Chiarelli is run out of town.

19.) 08 Jan 2018 12:21:20
The proposition is terrible? Well so are the Oilers this year. Every team, when in a state of freefall, will tend to make trades that do not bode well for themselves,

They clearly aren't winning with this core @yup. I haven't seen anyone say Nurse is an immovable asset. Aren't your top two dman Larsson and Klefbom? Why is Nurse so immovable, especially considering the team needs offensive dmen like Gardiner, and skilled forwards like Kapanen. Come on. Nurse isn't a top dman, and he isn't going to be. he's a top4 dman, and honestly, the 2nd deal is pretty fair.

The Oilers need to shakeup. You can't just keep saying no to every Oilers trade.

20.) 08 Jan 2018 14:53:02
Actually Nurse and Larsson I would say are out 1-2, when considering who is available or not. Nurse is 22 and showing signs this year now of becoming what we hope he will. I would say Klefbom is available tho, but in a package with a equal or better RHD coming back not this stuff proposed by Leafs17. Nurse is considered part of the core. I agree we need a shake up, But it's not going to be Nurse. Lol.

No, no these deals aren't fair and they don't make the Oilers better. They aren't giving away 22 year old nurse who is improving big time this year for those pieces. I would say maybe to Klefbom because I think he could be made available, not nurse, for this.
I wouldn't trade Klefbom for this stuff either tbo. Would be in a deal for a better return.

21.) 08 Jan 2018 19:57:23
That’s a more reasonable explanation yup. If you didn’t come out like it was the worst trade suggestion in NHL history, we’d all have some respect for you. Not that you care about that anyways but I was trying to help both our teams needs. Looking back, I think my first proposal should have been Kapanen and a 1st instead for Nurse. The second proposal I still think is fair and so do others. I guess that’s why you and I are not GM’s.

22.) 09 Jan 2018 15:05:52
Oilers say no, gardiners a plug. if kapanen is so great, keep him.



02 Dec 2017 09:07:50
Kane to Edmonton for a 1st (lottery protected). Edmonton needs scoring.

Giroux to Montreal for Galchenyuk, Scherbak & Plekanec. Philly can let Plekanec walk and have cap space and a couple young forwards. Montreal must go all in while Price is in his prime.

Iginla signs in Calgary, just cause

Toronto gets a 3-4 RH d man for Kapanen and a 1st. Leafs don't lose Marner or Nylander and wait for Liljegren to develop. Maybe Tanev, Stone, Braun, Ceci, Schenn, McQuaid, Bogasian? I don't know if any of these guys are available but just a thought.


1.) 02 Dec 2017 11:01:20
I would do Kapanen and a first for Ceci, don't think that Dorion would however. Sadly.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 15:32:13
I don’t think Chucky should be traded.

3.) 02 Dec 2017 17:11:14
what kane? would help if you said what team. if chicago, not even close, if buffalo a bit much.

4.) 02 Dec 2017 18:28:46
Clearly he didn’t mean patty kane but no way I’d give up a 1st for Evander especially since he’s UFA.

5.) 02 Dec 2017 19:06:23
I put Kapanen and a 1st as the trade bait coming from Toronto. All those defense listed have different value and some couldn’t get both from Toronto. Maybe just Kapanen or just the 1st could land one of these guys if their team was out of contention.

6.) 02 Dec 2017 19:15:23
Sorry PKane88, I definitely didn’t mean your buddy.

7.) 03 Dec 2017 10:15:21
If Hanzel and Ladd can get a 1st + as UFA to be at deadline then E. Kane will get more than just a 1st.

8.) 03 Dec 2017 10:15:54
I would give just a 1st for Neal or E. Kane any day of the week.



24 Nov 2017 05:33:34
The leafs could use a physical d man that will fight like Nurse. I'm not trying to low ball anyone, just wondering if these teams could help each other.

Nurse for Gardiner & Kapanen? Edmonton gets a puck moving defense man having an off year points wise but has been much better offensively. Gardiner is 5 years older. Kapanen could add some scoring depth.

Nurse for JVR & Kapanen? Maybe JVR can be resigned.

Nurse for JVR & Gardiner?

Any of these close?


1.) 24 Nov 2017 05:46:27
If oilers were offered either of those trades I’d hope Chiarelli would take it. Don’t get me wrong I like nurse and he’s progressed well in his game for the most part and playing well this season, but having a proven dman to replace him and another skilled forward would be a great deal for Edmonton.
But would Toronto be willing to give that up for Nurse?

2.) 24 Nov 2017 14:20:36
I don't think this works for Tor. they are looking to solidify their top 4D and giving one away still leaves a hole in their line up.

3.) 24 Nov 2017 22:14:09
Nurse is an interesting piece but gardiner is a top 4 Dman that Babcock likes. Can’t guarantee that with nurse. I would say no from leafs on both of them. Only reason to move one of the 3 top 4 Dman (Rielly, Gardiner or zaitsev) leafs have is if it’s in a package for a far better D. Otherwise it’s a lateral move, but getting a bit younger like Turkey said. Not worth losing kapanen or JVR for that.

4.) 25 Nov 2017 07:42:45
Thanks for the comment. I liked the Gardiner and Kapanen one the best myself. Kapanen is a good top 9 forward and Gardiner would likely help add some offense from the defense. Nurse being so much younger is why I put Kapanen in there. Who knows, maybe a speedy winger like Kapanen will fit with McDavid instead of Maroon. I’d just like Nurse in the leafs line up to add to their toughness. Other than Martin, the leafs don’t have anyone.

I was reading rumors on another site and it says the Hawks have a ton of space yet this same site shows that they're over the cap. Just curious where you guys go to see salary caps? Thanks


1.) 01 Mar 2015 08:06:05
nhlnumbers now that capgeek is gone
maybe its sth about Kane on LTIR?

2.) Thanks



27 Feb 2015 01:39:56
Maybe selling out Maple Leaf Gardens & the ACC for years has finally paid off. I guess they're paying him out of their pockets. The leafs get a 5 million cap relief and I have a Clarkson jersey to burn. Chirp is going to be furious, a good thing just happened to the leafs. Please leave enough space on the page for his rant.


1.) 27 Feb 2015 08:12:04
he'll spin in some negative way somehow. probably rant on how toronto shouldn't be able to spend its way out of mistakes or something, but make no mention of savard in BOS or pronger in PHI who are essentially the same situation, except if those salaries were counted those 2 teams would go wayyy over the cap.

2.) I don't think anyone has an issue with players like that being put on LTIR and not counting against the cap. I think most people to take exception to it believe that those contracts should not be tradable so that teams can't buy themselves out of a hole they were stupid enough to put themselves in. Kinda unfair to teams that can't afford to do it because you drove a FA out of their price range then got out of it in a way most teams couldn't. That's the only issue I see with it. Still very shocked that trade went down huge deal for Toronto



04 Sep 2014 10:02:29
I've been the commissioner of a yahoo fantasy pool for a few years now if you guys would like me to set it up. The pool I run is head to head. If you're unfamiliar with that, one week I'd play you and the next week I'd play someone else and so on. Your total points are accumulated throughout the year. Head to head is used as a tie breaker. 8-12 of us would be perfect. If we had an odd number we could still do it, just not head to head. My pool has 11 stat categories. G, A, PPP, SHP, +/-, GWG and SOG for players. W, SO, GAA and save % for goalies. I don't do PIM because I don't feel you should be rewarded for taking a penalty. We draft 23 players each and dress 17 a night, from every position. League votes on trades so there's no cheating. There's other details you'd see when you sign up. I'm not familiar with keeper leagues or dynasty's, but this pool is very fun and interesting. Of course luck is involved like any pool, yet far from a crap chute. I've won the regular season three years in a row but lost in the finals the last two. Fantasy playoffs are the last three weeks of regular season. It may be a lot to take in if you've never played but it is very easy and not time consuming at all. If you are interested and would like me to set it up I will. I'm pretty sure I can set it up and post the league name & password for you to sign up. We can do an online draft one weekend before the season starts. Let me know!


1.) You having success in it proves its a crap chute. ha. see what I did there?

2.) Seems pretty straight forward. I am fine with you being the commish. Set it up and maybe get people to email you instead of posting the details on here.

Also a suggestion - ppls team names have to be their screen name on here - just to keep it real ;)

3.) Easy and not time consuming work for me. you guys figure out what you wanna do. if it's a one time draft and then just check out the standings kinda thing I'm in. if you guys wanna do it some other way then I'm out, best of luck

4.) 04 Sep 2014 23:13:03

5.) 1 easy and not time consuming sounds good
2 do we need a commissioner?
3 someone has to explain fantasy hockey to me/others. the process please
4 can we play for dough or is it just bragging rights. cool either way
5 do I have to send my email address to someone I do t know. (draisaitl mentioned it I think)

6.) Looks like Ovie set one up.



03 Aug 2014 00:38:23
I'd love to see a contender sign Brodeur. Pittsburgh would be nice but Fleury would have to go because Brodeur wants to play. I think he'd make Washington a contender. What team do you think?


1.) I think he should have retired 2 years ago

2.) Best goalie ever

3.) 03 Aug 2014 17:27:37
theres no team in the league brodeur could start on now, nevermind a contender.

4.) Roy >>>>>>>>> Brodeur

Roy never played behind a trap defense
Marty was great, but he didn't create all his own success.

5.) Roy is ranked #4 in all time best goalie. Brodeur is ranked #1. Just cause you have a man crush on Roy doesn't meet he's the best.



22 Jul 2014 20:49:18
Leafs sign Booth, brutal. Finally someone that gets hurt more than Lupul.


1.) Pretty low risk/high reward signing. He's going to be better than Orr on the 4th line and could move up if he can get his sh*t together.

2.) Won't lie I don't like the leafs but booth at 1m is a great deal. Creates more completion within the wing group and also is a very small salary and cap so if he doesn't work out it's no lose. Some said Raymond at 1m was a bad deal at first but he scored 20? Goals, not too bad. I think with the added completion even if it's not booth scoring it will mean others have to step up their game.

3.) He will score 15+goals an put up 35+ points even if he only plays 60 games. call it mason raymond 2014-2015, playing for a contract next year, raymond parlayed a 1 million dollar season into 10 over 3 years.

4.) 23 Jul 2014 05:02:58
i don't see the downside to it. he's signed cheap to a 1 year deal, if he works out maybe he's another raymond, if he doesn't oh well who cares not like he's going to be a liability for years.

5.) If he does half of what you people think I will eat my words. I'd rather see some young kids get a chance since they didn't bother with any big names out there. I like that they made a little cap room, but sick of thinking they will sign a big name year after year. Every player they bring in is past their prime, or were once good before 15 concussions.

6.) I think Santorelli will be the Raymond of last year, not Booth. Hopefully they're both a steal.

7.) ^ Well it worked out well with Raymond. I get your point about getting the young guys some ice time and realistically, Santorelli, Kontiola, Booth, Frattin, Bodie are all guys who could be sent to the Marlies, in favour of those younger guys.

My point is that, even with the injury risk, Booth is a better option than Orr or McLaren. He is more skilled and can be relied upon for more than 5 min a game.

Maybe quantity equals quality there, I’m not sure. I still wouldn’t trade either of Stone or Hoffman unless an offer blows them away. If Karlsson is traded, the players coming back could put them right back into the playoffs. If Karlsson stays they will have a pretty good core with Duchene, Stone, Hoffman, Karlsson, Chabot and I’m sure I’m missing a couple.

Stop the BS Colt. Drouin may turn out to be a really good “winger”, but he hasn’t proven that yet. Draisaitl is a proven “center”, who are much more valuable. Not to mention a big power forward.

Wtf are you talking about? Logan came out and said that he’s getting traded to Pittsburgh? That’s not how business works.

I think that was a terrible deal by the lightning. Gudas, a 1st & 3rd for a 30 year old average d man. They could have had Polak for Gudas alone. Polak was the 1st name that I could think of, but there had to have been better options for cheaper. Personally, I hope the leafs keep Polak.

@steamer do you understand that it doesn't go against Toronto's cap? Big difference. The owners are paying, they owe us one. They'll probably raise ticket prices to get their money back.
