Nylander for Bennett, Stone & 1st?
Calgary adds a top 6 forward and I don't think they have a need for Stone or his contract. Toronto gets some much needed grit who is also the same age as Nylander, a decent RD and a mid to late 1st probably. Calgary definitely gets the best player in the deal and rid themselves of Stone's contract but I think it also helps the leafs salary wise. Stone could be ok for a couple years until Liljegren or Sandin are ready. I know there are a lot of different views about Bennett on this site but I like the way he plays and I think he still has more potential.

Leafs also pick up Luke Schenn just because I love the guy and I don't want to see Marincin ever again.

I might be way off here but Minnesota is looking for scoring and Pittsburgh is looking to change things up.
Spurgeon, Fehr & a 1st for Kessel
Spurgeon, Eriksson for Kessel

Spurgeon improves Pittsburgh's defense, Fehr adds some center depth and has already played there, plus a 1st. In the second proposal, I really don't know much about Eriksson but he's young and from what I've heard from you guys, he's supposed to be good. The cap in both deals are similar. Although Kessel only plays at one end of the rink, he is at the top of the league in scoring year after year. You have to give to get.


1.) 10 Nov 2018 04:50:20
Erikson El might become a bust at this point.



23 Oct 2018 10:13:03
Babcock has said he'd like a couple bigger bodies up front. Mantha is off to a slow start and Ithere's rumors of a possible change of scenery.

Kapanen plus 2019 1st for Mantha?

Kapanen 1st round 22nd OA 22 years old
Mantha 1sr round 20th OA 24 years old
Kapanen has the speed and although a small sample size, the talent to play in the top 6. He is also 2 years younger. Mantha is a proven scorer but doesn't put up big point totals. He has size but apparently lacks intensity sometimes. I added the 1st because Mantha is more proven. Is it fair value wise?

Or ignore all of this and sign Nash when he's ready.


1.) 23 Oct 2018 13:18:32
Is there really that much a difference between the two players, a 1st round pick difference? With all the Leaf fan praise for Kapanen I'm a little surprised to see you would add a 1st to him for Mantha.

2.) 23 Oct 2018 14:13:26
I don’t think there’s a huge difference in skills, mantra has had more time to prove himself than kappy. He’s not 6’5 like mantra but he can fly and works his ass off. The last thing Babcock wants is a guy who lacks intensity.

3.) 23 Oct 2018 15:30:19
I’ve always been a fan of Kapanen, this is the first we’ve seen him play in the top 6. It may not be the best idea to trade him but a power forward is much needed IMO. Babcock demands intensity and I think playing on a team that is supposed to be contending would help Mantha with that. Maybe the 1st is not needed but Mantha has proven himself more, mostly because of age and Kapanen not cracking the top 6 until now. I’d rather trade Nylander + for Mantha and one of Detroit’s young RD prospects but I don’t know enough about them to make such a proposal.

4.) 24 Oct 2018 22:08:38
I don’t think the difference is a 1st round pick. I also know that Babcock hates lack of intensity. I think he would rather Kapanens speed and look elsewhere for size. Mantha was a beast of a goal scorer in junior, bit till he shows a bit more in the NhL, I don’t think the return is a younger good player and a 1st.

Winnipeg: Trouba
Edmonton: Draisaitl


1.) 20 Jul 2018 21:04:08
I doubt Edmonton would do it and the Jets can't afford Draisaitl's contract. But value wise as long as Draisaitl can actually start carrying a line as a 2C, it is pretty good. 2C for a top pairing RHD.

2.) 20 Jul 2018 21:46:52
Memarcuswindowlicker approves.

3.) 20 Jul 2018 22:03:27
Oh boy. much rather Draisatl to Trouba.

4.) 20 Jul 2018 22:09:44
Lmao no from oilers come on joe.

5.) 20 Jul 2018 22:12:59
Edmonton needs Drat way more than they need Trouba. Also value wise it isn’t there. Imo. Especially Trouba thinking he’s a top 10 dman in the league. Not a chance.

6.) 20 Jul 2018 23:02:47
Sorry guys, I was just trying to make a point of how ridiculous all the Trouba trades were getting. I really didn’t think biasjoe would think this is fair.

7.) 20 Jul 2018 23:29:18
I prefer you keep Draisaitl as well. The longer the Oilers have that much tied up in bad contracts up front and keep rolling out an ECHL quality defense, the longer they stay anchored to dead last in the West.

8.) 20 Jul 2018 23:47:12
Ya crap, back to back 70 point - 22 year old, big solid strong centers are so terrible to have. Sucks.

9.) 21 Jul 2018 03:18:53
Have fun resigning your core Marcus, especially when Trouba who ain't even the number one dman on your team wants 7 million and has temper tantrums because he's playing behind Buff.

10.) 21 Jul 2018 06:20:45
HAhahaha wtf sick chirp.

11.) 21 Jul 2018 09:12:37
ECHL quality defence? Larsson is just as good as Trouba. Klefbom and nurse are just as good as and if not better then Myers. Not do mention they grabbed Bouchard who has top 2 potential and have Bear in the pipe line. I’m pretty sure Klefbom would score 3 goals per period in the ECHL.

12.) 21 Jul 2018 11:26:53
Wow vbb. 👏👏👏. Salute - No sarcasm there.

13.) 21 Jul 2018 17:26:46
Vbb you just mentioned how to defence on Edmonton who are as good as Myers. The jets bottom pairing defence.

14.) 21 Jul 2018 17:31:42
This trade would only happen if the Oilers retained $2 mil per year of Draisaitls contract.

15.) 21 Jul 2018 19:44:36
@IJ your so biased, its not even funny, lol.

Your idea of a realistic trade is probably Nico Hischier for Trouba. Lol.

16.) 21 Jul 2018 23:25:54
Myers/ Moreissy is their 3rd best dman.

17.) 22 Jul 2018 00:09:06
Not even close vb. Myers is fourth at most probably fifth when kulikov is actually health. Myers has issues in his end.

18.) 22 Jul 2018 06:17:31
Haha alpaca. 2 weeks ago jets fans were saying Myers would be top pair on half the teams in the league. Now vbb names guys better and just to discredit that you say Myers is terrible lol. New level of little man syndrome. Most clueless fans.

19.) 22 Jul 2018 15:14:43
You'll notice none of those were me.

20.) 22 Jul 2018 15:59:08
You’re saying Kulikov is better than Myers lol and that no oilers Dman is as good as either of them. That makes you, islandjet and MarcusJoe all one. If you did a one to one comparison of why you would rather Myers over klefbom, I can respect that. Just coming out and saying no one on Edmonton is as good as Kulikov who was being scratched in buffalo after being traded from Florida for very little is clearly just trash. Klefbom and Larson are clearly better than Kulikov. And better than Myers.

21.) 23 Jul 2018 06:32:50
Never commented on edmontons defence. I simply pointed out that he compared them to Myers. Your reading an awful lot into my comments. And yes a healthy kulikov is as good or better than Myers.



20 Jul 2018 20:39:28
Winnipeg: Trouba
Toronto: Matthews


1.) 20 Jul 2018 21:06:06
Yes, let's see you talk Leaf fans into this. A generational player, 10 or 20 times better than McDavid for a crappy D man?

2.) 20 Jul 2018 21:38:19
ok this is obviously a bad trade but . Mathews 20x better than Mcdavid? that's a joke, Mcdavid is the best hockey player in the world . Mathews is Maybe Top 10.

3.) 20 Jul 2018 21:38:59
How about what a jets fan thinks biasjoe? Is Matthews good enough to carry a 2nd line? Is that enough to offer for a top 10 d man in the league?

4.) 20 Jul 2018 22:04:55
Who said Trouba was crappy and who said Matthews is so much better than McDavid? Marcus get your head checked please.

5.) 20 Jul 2018 22:41:38
No from jets Trouba is a god. He deserves 10 million because he’s a true #1rhd. It’s McDavid or bust- Jets fans.

6.) 20 Jul 2018 23:32:16
I for one have never heard anyone say that Trouba was crappy and I don’t even think that vbb’s would say Matthews is better than McDavid. Biasjoe has had a rough couple days to say the least.

7.) 21 Jul 2018 03:19:51
Trouba>EKs wheels + Kanes hands + Charas height + McDavids hockey IQ.

8.) 21 Jul 2018 05:55:17
I don't understand why everyone overvalues leafs players? I obviously don’t think he’s as good as McDavid he’s on the Eichel level imo. Maybe abit better ( 40 goals vs what ever Eichel got but yah ) .

9.) 21 Jul 2018 18:04:37
I never thought I would agree with vbbbvvbb. Matthews has shown in the playoffs that he is not a generational talent but a good player.

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.

I hope to to see Liljegren this year before they make a big trade for a RD. I know the experience is not there but maybe adding a veteran defenseman at the deadline would be better than trading a piece of the core away if Liljegren could be ready next year on an ELC.

I guess. The value seems fair considering Backes term is shorter than Lucic’s.

They have no choice but to let Gardiner walk IMO. Dermott can fill the void and there are much bigger players to sign. I don’t follow the prospects too much, just the odd article and what you guys say. Does anyone think Liljegren or Sandin will be ready next year?

I see the logic but there’s nobody in the proposal to do the scoring you say the Bruins need.

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.
