Sens trade Hoffman, prospect Donaghy, and a 5th to the Sharks for Boedker, prospect Bergman and a 6th.

Pretty underwhelming return.

Looks like the controversy impacted his value, not surprisingly to most.

Amazing deal for sharks if he doesn’t bring any off ice issues along with him.


2.) 19 Jun 2018 15:35:12
Agreed McJ. And I would say kudos to Dorion. Boedeker is slightly overpaid but is at least a serviceable 3rd line winger (probably second line in Ottawa) and while I don't know much about Bergman he was a 2nd rounder and could still pan out. The draft picks are a wash and Donaghy will likely never crack an NHL roster so this is a better return than I had expected, given that the entire world knew Ottawa's hands were tied.

Is it the 10th overall from Edmonton as some had suggested? Certainly not, but that was ridculous to believe in the first place.


3.) 19 Jun 2018 15:42:00
We'll he's for sure going to bring off ice issues with him. but the sharks don't seem to mind that.


4.) 19 Jun 2018 15:42:49
Sharks just flipped him to panthers. 2nd 4th ans 5th.


5.) 19 Jun 2018 15:46:16
And sharks were rumoured to be all in for tavares, so they ditched boedker, and ended up with a 2nd, 4th and 5th, a forward roster spot and $4 mill cap space. Good move.


6.) 19 Jun 2018 16:15:41
Yes jim that's what they are saying. And it could be the case but for some reason I think they are going after kovalchuk.


7.) 19 Jun 2018 17:00:24
Yeah. Either way, getting 3 picks, a roster spot and cap flexibility right before draft weekend for doing some paperwork is a good plan.


8.) 19 Jun 2018 18:34:04
San Jose also in on Tavares.

Some pretty crazy (and frankly disturbing) stories coming out of Ottawa. If true, good luck trading Hoffman for fair value.

Hey Rambo, still think Hoffman is worth Nylander? Here's an updated trade proposal:

Ottawa: Hoffman
Edmonton: Lucic

That's IF the Oilers want to rid themselves of the Lucic contract badly enough. They may take the high road and want to avoid the situation all together.

Hoffman is still a good player on a decent contract. Some teams will definately give a much better offer than that. Also it is important to note that it was not Hoffman that is the at fault here, his girlfriend was the one sending the threats. Now we don’t know if Hoffman even knew (however it is likely that he did) but there is surely more to the story than what we know at this point and as such I doubt his value drops this drastically. If teams are willing to pay good value for players (themselves) that were accused of much worse then I am sure Hoffman is worth much, much more than Lucic.


2.) 13 Jun 2018 02:07:15
I’ve seen several hockey wife’s tweet about it so it’s more than likely true. But that doesn’t mean Hoffman knew or was involved in the nasty stuff. Don’t think it would affect his trade value all that much.


3.) 13 Jun 2018 03:42:05
Ottawa adds.


4.) 13 Jun 2018 03:16:57
Yah that’s a no from sens maybe if they added the 10th ovr.


5.) 13 Jun 2018 03:54:22
Haha I'm admittedly trolling Rambo with the above offer, but if after the dust settles, it's clear that Hoffman new about the harassment and lied about it, it's definitely going to negatively impact his trade value.

Ottawa will be forced to trade him at that point to save face, all GM's will know that Ottawa is in a jam and their hand is forced, and they will subsequently low ball.

Adding to that, who's going to want to share a locker room with that kind of guy?

This is just pouring gasoline on the raging tire fire that is the Ottawa Senators organization at the moment.


6.) 13 Jun 2018 04:13:04
Yes. Some of the hockey wives have somewhat confirmed that Hoffman's girlfriend/ fiance said those abhorrent words and if true (seems like it is), is absolutely disgusting. But i don't really understand how that affects Hoffman's trade value? IF Hoff defends her actions once proven that she said all those horrible things, then absolutely, career ruining. But for the moment, Hoff can't control what his girlfriend says, especially if he didn't know about it.

Just don't understand how something that Hoffman had no control over (to an extent) is considered career ruining and he is now UNTRADEABLE, yet Slava Voynov is garnering lots of interest from multiple teams.

Other than this Hoffman has never been perceived as a locker room problem .
However, if he does defend her actions once she is proven guilty, i'm def. going to have to change the name .


7.) 13 Jun 2018 13:20:41
His trade value definitely takes a hit from this. Don’t know how you can think it doesn’t.


8.) 13 Jun 2018 13:25:52
It affects his value because she goes where he does. You don't think that that could have been one of the things that tanked Ottawas season? It also appears this stuff has been happening for a long time but crossed a line with the Karlssons unfortunate situation. Just because its kept private doesn't mean he isn't bad in the room and now Ottawa has to trade him. No matter how good a player teams aren't going to take him if his baggage can sink a season unless its extreme value.


9.) 14 Jun 2018 22:59:04
Cool story bro. I was unaware that a players girlfriends factional actually affect their on ice value of the player themselves lol does she play for him too?

I had 2 crazy chicks when I was a bit younger but neither of their actions affected my job performance or value to my employer it's called personal and professional lives being kept separate. and the nhl is just like any other business. if the guy performs well like Hoff does it should have no affect on his value. actually it might raise his value as now more teams know he's available and found end up as a bidding war.


10.) 15 Jun 2018 16:23:52
More delusions from Rambo island hahaha.


11.) 18 Jun 2018 21:08:15
Delusions? It's called common sense unsportsmanlike. you should try using yours sometime. your wife's actions don't affect your work place value, nor does mine, nor does Hoffman's.

Will he defend his wife if he believes her story? He wouldn't be much of a man if he didn't now would he? It's called trust in a relationship and him giving her the benefit of the doubt.

WPG: Trouba

TOR: Gardiner, Bozak, 2018 2nd (TOR), 2018 2nd (SJ).

Leafs get a top pairing RHD to play with Rielly, while Gardiner slots in on the LHS on the Jets second pairing (they are way deeper on the RHS). Had a score mobile update stating the Jets are looking to add depth at forward at the deadline. Bozak would upgrade the third line. Added the two seconds as Trouba remains an RFA at the end of the year, while Gardiner only has one more season on current contract.

CAR: Hanifin

TOR: JVR (extended), 2018 1st (TOR).

Deal is conditional on JVR signing an extension (Carolina has lots of cap room and is eager to add scoring) which he may be willing to do as his brother plays there.

Leafs finally fix their leaky D:

Rielly Trouba
Hanifin Hainsey
Dermott Zaitsev
Carrick/Borgman/Polak (extras)

Have at it.

unsportsmanlike

1.) 20 Feb 2018 01:19:48
Still don’t understand how Trouba has so much value lol.


2.) 20 Feb 2018 01:20:17
Also Carolina wants more imo they can be greedy especially when it comes to Hanifin.


3.) 20 Feb 2018 01:30:25
Hahahaha
Toronto’s finest.


4.) 20 Feb 2018 01:58:43
Winnipeg laughs at you.
Carolina says no, Better chance getting Faulk than Hannifin.


5.) 20 Feb 2018 02:56:13
these are terrible. way too much from toronto.


6.) 20 Feb 2018 03:21:44
LOL from Carolina.


7.) 20 Feb 2018 09:52:12
2nd Trade is definitely a no from Carolina.


8.) 20 Feb 2018 15:04:30
Hilarious trade offer from Winnipeg's point of view. Absolutely no chance that would ever be considered for Trouba.


9.) 20 Feb 2018 16:33:07
Too much for trouba, although those pieces don't really help winnipeg aside from the picks and not enough for hanifin but again i don't think either of these players should be leafs targets. stud RHD or do nothing.


10.) 20 Feb 2018 17:24:48
Both deals a no go

Gardiner is too poor defensively
Hanufin worth way more than that.

I really think this holdout had completely blown up in his face.

Kapanen is getting more comfortable by the game playing beside Matthews, and the Leafs don't look like they are missing Nylander's services at all. If anything, Nylander is putting himself in a worse negotiating position. He can stamp his feet all he wants -- at the end of the day Dubas owns him regardless and if he doesn't sign by December he misses out on the $6.5 mln (or whatever) the Leafs have offered him.

If I were Dubas I would continue to offer him something in the $6mln-$7mln range and not a penny more (actually I would probably offer him even less than before out of spite but that would probably have bad optics) and don't even consider trading him (unless somebody bowls you over with an offer you can't refuse) .

Pigs get fat; hogs get slaughtered.

Okay, don't like the Pasta comparison?

How about Scheiffele? Posts better point totals. Actually plays center (more valuable than a winger) . Makes just over $6 I believe.

Or Ehlers? Posts very similar numbers to Nylander. Winger. Makes $6 even.

There are several others in that range. Certainly not a one-off that should not be used as fair bookends for what Nylander is worth. $8mln for a guy who is not a ppg player nor a strong two-way player and is a winger is out of touch with reality.

Also I'm getting sick of this "doing what's best for his and his children's financial security" narrative. What a load.

Even if the Leafs came in at the low-end and offered him 6 mln x 8 years, that's almost $50 mln in guaranteed money and in all likelihood that won't be the last contract he signs in his career. Plus there's additional income streams from endorsements (he can do a Head and Shoulders commercial with his pretty boy hair or something) . The guy will have more money than 99.999% of the global population ever sees, so let's end the pity party right here and stop worrying about his financial future.

Triplets, you would have a point if the Leafs were actually lowballing Nylander, but from what I have read, they are not. They are trying to get him signed in the $6 mln - $7mln range, which is exactly what he is worth, based on comparable players/ contracts (I really fail to see why he should be paid much more than Pastrnak at $6.67 mln a year who is by all measures the superior player) .

You get paid for what you have accomplished and the player/ ability you have shown yourself to be -- Nylander asking for $8mln is seemingly looking to be paid for the player he could turn out to be, and frankly, that's not how the NHL (or life in the real world in general) works.
