Correct Score Competition Entry

22 Jan 2017 05:08:24
Sugar Canes
Staal, J ($2,500,000 retained)
Stalberg, V ($500,000 retained)
De La Rose,
2017 2nd round pick

22 Jan 2017 10:24:35
Add a 4th, 5th, 7th and 3 more prospects from each team. Then it's fair.

Anyways Pecse and J. Staal with 2.5Mil retained is worth a lot more. Stick to bagels.

22 Jan 2017 15:38:12
That doesn't even get Pesce

22 Jan 2017 19:52:46
Hahaha drunk Boris at it again.

21 Jan 2017 23:10:46
Mtl:Plekanec, Gallagher, Julsen,1rd pick 2017,2rd pick 2017


22 Jan 2017 00:05:30
Minny says No. Also so do the Habs. Paying both him and Weber top rate dollar well into there late 30s, maybe even early 40's would cripple this team.

22 Jan 2017 00:47:32
Yea but you do this Mtl wins the cup guaranteed. Suter and Weber together again? OHHH YA BABYYYYYY

22 Jan 2017 00:48:14

22 Jan 2017 04:06:12
Good point, it would be nice to have Suter and Weber playing together going into the playoff. I would go as far as saying that if we did this trade Mtl would be contemders big time off the cup

22 Jan 2017 09:13:38
Believe it or not Suter is worth more. Need better quality then that for argueably a top 5 Dman. Plekanec? Really? Start with Chuck and add from there.

21 Jan 2017 22:40:46
mtl-gallagher-beaulieu-plekanec-1stpick 2017

col-duchene and beauchemin

22 Jan 2017 03:48:35
You miss spelt serga

22 Jan 2017 04:27:18
Beaulieu > Beauchemin, Habs D would get weaker so no, bigly

22 Jan 2017 09:20:59
and duchene is way more better then plek?

21 Jan 2017 15:44:06

Cal: Bennett, Kyrinton

21 Jan 2017 16:38:44
Why from Calgary? They are set on left wing. They could move Patches to right wing but that still creates a hole on the second line Center and Kylington is arguably their best d prospect. If I was Calgary I would hold on and hope Bennett turns things around as he is only 20 and I think that Kylington has the potential to be a top 4 d man

21 Jan 2017 16:56:09
It doesn't make sense for either team. Habs aren't doing a rebulid, and Flames aren't a Pacioretty type from winning the cup. If you take Patches off the Habs, you leave a huge hole.

22 Jan 2017 04:30:42
really stupid deal for Habs

21 Jan 2017 04:25:27
Mtl:Shaw, Julsen,2rd pick2017


21 Jan 2017 08:30:32
Now that is very interesting. 100% I'd take that if I'm Oilers.

21 Jan 2017 09:14:09
Really? I'd rather just keep Nuge. Not terrible though.

21 Jan 2017 10:55:19
I think Nuge could get better quality, and I'm not really a fan of RNH.

21 Jan 2017 13:59:26
It doesn't look like Drais is moving from that top line, so why trade Hopkins? I think that would create another hole.

21 Jan 2017 14:27:32
Shaw is garbage, oilers pass

21 Jan 2017 18:29:45
Maybe because i like Shaw and the way he plays, and because Nuge has pissed me off so many times this year lol. But ya I agree maybe keeping Nuge is better than the package.

21 Jan 2017 22:39:43
I'm wondering if u guys would leave rnh alone and maybe take eberle instead lol

22 Jan 2017 03:06:25
No thank you Eberle is overrated and lazy

20 Jan 2017 20:47:22
Mtl:Lindgreen,2rd 2017 (chi)

Zona: Duclair

Coyotes gets a goalie that could be a second to Smith as soon as next season and in two years could be their starter. Mtl gets a winger who had a lot f trouble at the beginning of the season but has been playing better in the last 5 games and could be another scoring option for mtl. The pick is because Duclair proved (yea he did even with the rough start this season) that he can play regularly in the NHL while Lindgreen hasn't made the jump yet.

20 Jan 2017 23:25:18
I just don't know why Arizona would give up on him because the entire team is horrible and he also wasn't doing well. Makes no sense to just give up. It'll be wiser to let him get his confidence back and keep him as he's still really young.

20 Jan 2017 23:26:21
Also Smith is a really good goalie, even tho his stats aren't great this year (can't blame him) but he has definitely proved he's a good goalie. Unless they can trade him then it'll make more sense to acquire a goalie

21 Jan 2017 17:26:01
Smith is getting old though. That's why getting a solid goalie prospect would be a good move for Arizona

22 Jan 2017 03:12:52
Yea that's what I was thinking. because as good as Smith is he has maybe a year or two left in him as a good starter. Not more then that imo.

20 Jan 2017 19:33:38
Mtl:Lindgreen,2rd 2017 (chi)

Zona: Duclair

Coyotes gets a goalie that could be a second to Smith as soon as next season and in two years could be their starter. Mtl gets a winger who had a lot f trouble at the beginning of the season but has been playing better in the last 5 games and could be another scoring option for mtl. The pick is because Duclair proved (yea he did even with the rough start this season) that he can play regularly in the NHL while Lindgreen hasn't made the jump yet.

20 Jan 2017 20:22:59
Id be all over this of the Coyotes would be. . Not sure they are at that point atm. i know he was jus sent down. but, he has jus hit a horrible bump in the road. Honestly think it would be fookish for Coyotes to give him up. unless part of a bigger package to get an already established player.

20 Jan 2017 21:49:09
I get what you mean but they have a lot of guys like Duclair in the system:winger who have a lot of talent but are not really constant. I figured If try could get a goalie of the caliber of Lindgreen and a second rounder on top of that they'd be happy campers

20 Jan 2017 22:07:11
I don't know much about the goalie. I know he's quite hyped up. Is it us Habs fans that over hype him.? Or is this actually a fair trade. . ?
Id love to see Duclair on the Habs.

20 Jan 2017 22:30:10
Lindgreen is definitely going to be a starter in the nhl imo. Know is he king to become . Maybe. he's definitely not the next Carey Price but could be a similar to Bishop in the way that because he is such a big goalie it took him more time to become a good starter in the NHL. I think once Lindgreen hits his late twenties he will be a solid starter in the NHL. You might say why trade him if he's so good. i'd trade him because I figure that Price is good for another 8 years so Lindgreen is never really going to be starting in mtl and if so he would be in his mid 30

20 Jan 2017 23:23:57
Ya, i'd make this deal. Thanks for the info.

20 Jan 2017 14:46:42
Hopefully these trades make more sense!

Mtl: 4th
Van: Burrows
Good depth rental player to help out for a deep playoff run.

Flo: Jagr
Mtl: Mitchell, 2017 2nd, 2017 3rd,
Montreal has been trying to get JJ forever, and since he's basically in his prime, this trade could do the trick

Mtl: Pleckanec, 2018 2nd, 5th
Flo: Trocheck
Trockeck is a big center that can win faceoffs and easily get 40 to 50 points. Might retain some of Pleckanec salary?

20 Jan 2017 15:15:17
Florida will not trade Trocheck for that. He's done a great job filling in for the loss of Barkov and Hub.

20 Jan 2017 15:29:01
Trocheck is worth more. Btw he's 5'10'' so why do you call him a BIG center?

20 Jan 2017 17:20:30
Florida will not move Trocheck. and deffinetly not for that. Think have a better shot at gettig Bjugstad. ( the big center) .
But if Bergevin could somehow pull that off, i'd be all for it.

21 Jan 2017 01:04:48
That package could get you Yarg at most lol. Bjugstad is more what Mtl need anyways. he's not going to cost as much as Trocheck he could probably go for a late first round, B prospect and an okay NHL ready guy

20 Jan 2017 02:26:19
The other Mcjesus, you said if the right offer would be made for Nice Oilers would consider. If Mtl would be proposing this would you say it would fit your teams need:

Mtl: Julsen, Byron,2rd pick,2rd (chi)


Oilers gets a winger who has 27 points so far so 5 more then Hopkins, a great right handed defenseman prospect that they don't have to prospect for the expansion draft and a second rounder. Honestly if you say Mtl changes the seconds to a first I disagree because Nuge is not having a good season and for that price I just rather keep a winger who plays with a lot of energy and gets his share of points and an awesome defense prospect. I honestly think we could take one second out and it would be more fair but i'd like to see what you guys think.

20 Jan 2017 06:53:00
Take out one of the 2nds.

20 Jan 2017 11:22:41
Obviously it doesn't work cap wise for mtl so like maybe send Plakanec's or another cap dump

20 Jan 2017 12:10:57
Byron is having a wonder season, he hasn't been successful anywhere else and won't have much value in a trade. Juulsen plus a couple seconds won't get it done.

20 Jan 2017 14:54:49
Take out the seconds are you crazy, juleson is over rated and Byron is a journey man. Not enough for an established second line center

20 Jan 2017 15:11:23
Only in your wildest dreams.
But take out the 2nd's and Edmonton can give you Anton lander and Caleb Jones for that.

Gonna have to give up Paccoretti + if you want RNH.

20 Jan 2017 15:17:14
I like Juulsen and the 2nds but I can't see Oilers making this trade. If they trade Nuge it'll be for immediate help not future. Also I just don't think Montreal has the pieces Edmonton even needs tbh, they need a RHD who can contribute now and I can't see Nuge being traded for a winger.

20 Jan 2017 16:59:09
Montreal will pass. Don't need RNH. He will never be a #1 center and we aren't going to give up to much for #2 center.

20 Jan 2017 17:00:32
Yea I get what our mean only problem with getting a ready now right handed D is that he'll be snatche in the expension draft

20 Jan 2017 19:28:14
Byron > RNH

Habs won't pay that much for a 1st overall bust, look what Oils got for Yak from Blues.

20 Jan 2017 19:33:05
$6 million longterm for a 40 point centre doesn't sense cap wise for Habs, at least Plek only has 1 year left on his deal .

20 Jan 2017 23:25:44
Dear Mr Bagel
If he was a bust, he wouldn't have been one of the top players on the Young guns team at the World hockey championship.

Not that you would care because I'm sure your mind is made up caz he doesn't dawn a Habs Jersey. But watch him play sometime. He has a gift that not many have. He is super slick at stripping the puck off of opponents sticks both on the backcheck and in tight up against the boards. He turns D-zone panic pressure situations into offensive opportunities frequently with his puck swiping gift. Since he's a team player and is doing what the coach asks him to so the TEAM can win. He gets way more PK time than PP time.

Hockey is a Team game Boris. A players worth is sometimes not measured in how many points / assists you can rack up. Score 25 G's . give up 40 . Does that help the TEAM win?

21 Jan 2017 04:07:59
Fair Trade4all OK, RNH may be the most gifted and talented NHLer to score 40 points this season, however, his $6M cap hit doesn't work for Habs for another 4 seasons . they have to re-sign Radulov (who's on pace for 60+ points) at about $6M and Chucky is RFA and due about $6M+ (& who's scoring at about a point per game pace @with 27 pts 29 GP) .

21 Jan 2017 04:11:07
also, the speedy Byron is on pace for about 50 pts this year and has a cap hit of just over $1M, he's on a great deal for Habs, makes no sense for them to trade him for a bad contract

20 Jan 2017 00:59:03
Tampa: Bishop, Namestikov

St Louis: Shatty

Mtl: 2 Rd pick 2017,2rd pick (chi), Carr

St Louis: Namestikov

20 Jan 2017 12:23:13
I don't think the difference between Bishop and Shatty is Namestnikov when they are both UFAs. Especially with Bishop more likely to resign in St Louis than Shatty in Tampa. Not to mention Tampa isn't likely to make playoffs this year would need to go on a 2016 Pens like streak.

19 Jan 2017 23:26:07
Desharnais (3rd line centre) added for cap reasons
McNiven (top OHL goalie)
2nd Rd 2017
2nd Rd 2018

Doan (Playoff help RW)
Hanzel (#2/ 3 big center to help Montreal defensively through their struggles rn)

Plekanec (Retain 25%)


19 Jan 2017 23:36:04
No from annahiem easily

19 Jan 2017 23:44:49
I like the Fowler one. however, Anaheim won't like it.
I don't like the Arizona one. Doan is going to be 41. And Hanzal is what the Habs are already full of. Guys that get injured and top out at about 35 points.

20 Jan 2017 01:05:02
I'm in love with the Anaheim one. If only Mtl could gets top 4 Defensemen for that price. Lol no way from Anaheim bud.

20 Jan 2017 03:10:24
Trade 1 is giving too much to Arizona.

Trade 2 doesn't give enough for Fowler.

Plec is now dust and a big cap hit, so basically Juulsen and a fringe player for Fowler. Jules projects well but will never have the offensive ability of Fowler.

20 Jan 2017 16:50:25
Personally, i like the trades, but just not doan. i would replace him with a 5th or something and instead, make a trade with vancouver for burrows for a 4th or 5th (that arizona gave) . He gives a lot of depth for the playoffs and is younger than doan. i'm pretty sure that he AT LEAST has 1 year of playoff experience

19 Jan 2017 15:31:50
This is the second trade:

Mtl: Plecky, Juulsen, 2017 2nd and 2018 3rd
Col: Duchene (retain little), Gelina


Col: Landy, Zadorov
Mtl: Markov, 2 2017 2nds, Carr (maybe andrighetto)

19 Jan 2017 17:18:36
Oh my god. You must be so drunk to actually have posted these two ideas. Terrible, absolutely terrible for Colorado.
Ahahaha nist noticed your brackets after Duchene. Wow you're delusional.

20 Jan 2017 20:38:52
These offers must be a joke lol

21 Jan 2017 01:47:47
I would love to see the Habs land Duchesne. Yup is right. Montreal needs to add.
Try this one.
Pleks Juulsen 2017 1st and McCarron

19 Jan 2017 15:26:36
I can see one of these trades happening at the trade deadline.

Mtl: Plecky, Terry, DLR
Ari: Hanzal (retain 50%), 3rd or 4th

19 Jan 2017 16:17:57
I don't see this one working as there's not much benefit from Arizona's end to letting Hanzal go.
Other teams will offer higher picks and or way more solid prospects.
Plekanic is a negative to the deal with his salary.

Arizona has cap problems so them taking on more salary is unlikely.

19 Jan 2017 16:18:20
No. Stawp.

19 Jan 2017 19:43:13
Since hen does Zona have caps issues lol

19 Jan 2017 21:35:23
Habs pass: Plek > Hansel&Gretel

19 Jan 2017 14:39:58

Mtl:Lekonen,2 Rd pick 2017

19 Jan 2017 19:12:54
As of right now there is no way Minny does this but Lehkonen will be interesting in how he accels at NHL level.

19 Jan 2017 10:22:56
Stars - Habs

DAL: Hudler, Ritchie

MTL: Emelin, 1st pick

19 Jan 2017 11:13:28
Hudler's had a terrible year and Ritchie is worth no more than a 3rd and that's stretching it. Yeah Emelin is pretty much negative value, but a first on top of it for two average to below average players?

19 Jan 2017 11:48:15
Hudler's season hasn't been good because of injuries, but when he recovers he would be a remarkable strengthening for habs' offense, which hasn't been very good. There's a risk for both of teams, which I think they should take.

19 Jan 2017 12:14:08
*could* be, not would

19 Jan 2017 14:15:08
No thanks Hudler is not what we need a at all. We need a young center for the second line or a top 4 defensemen. Not a 34 years old guy that we have to give up are best body checker for and a first. No thanks. If you want are first from this year it's going to be for a guy like RNH or Weenberg any body that proved he could center the second line

19 Jan 2017 14:45:08
Well how about we replace Hudler with Eakin and 3rd pick? That would be more of a fair deal.

19 Jan 2017 15:32:47
Takes away on what Habs are short on. Dmen. Emelin is the most physical guy onbthe Habs. he's got more value than most think. he's over paid. yes.

19 Jan 2017 15:41:02
StarsFan, I don't get how come you thin Mtl has had trouble offensively this year. Consideration the injuries we actually had been doing great offensively compared to a lot of other teams. We still need a second line center but Hudler is not the solution at all. The only center in Dallas I see Mtl getting is Spezza but the asking price might be too much. Pthrt then that a gift like RNH is what we should acquire but Oilers think he's worth the moon.

19 Jan 2017 23:37:44
Technically yes, their offense have made some good results this year, but I meant that their playing style isn't that offensive. I rarely see Habs being the team which holds the puck and leads the game, and on that department I meant their offense is not that good. Players like Hudler would help them in that department, considering the fact the team has only 2-3 playmakers

19 Jan 2017 03:48:33
Dallas: Spezza

Mtl: Pleky, 2rd pick 2017

Dallas could use à more défensive center because Séguin takes care of that while mtl needs a more offensive one. I think the second compensate vague just because Spezza is getting paid more so he can't be worth at one more especialy when you consider their both getting old

19 Jan 2017 08:02:38
Habs add big time. Plek+2nd

19 Jan 2017 10:35:23
Definite no from Stars. Spezza is their top3 forward for now, and a great replacement for Stars if Seguin/ Benn would get an injury

19 Jan 2017 15:34:00
I like ot though. Jus would have to add more.

19 Jan 2017 01:27:00

Mtl:Beaulieu, Mitchell,2rd pic

Pitt could use a good face off center, Beaulieu replaces Maatta and the second is a bonus. Mtl gets a defensemen that's actully able to play with Weber since he's use to playing with great defensemen like Letang.

19 Jan 2017 02:16:56
The Penguins have more than enough centers. Crosby, Malkin, Bonino, Cullen, not to mention Fehr is capable of playing center

19 Jan 2017 02:42:54
Yeah Pitsburgh can get a lot more than that for Maataa 😂

19 Jan 2017 14:44:53
I really like this one for the habs

18 Jan 2017 23:54:24
Mtl: Sherback,2rd pick 2017


19 Jan 2017 01:18:49
Hear me out on this one. My thinking is that Beauvillier knows Michel Therien well and he could really develop good in mtl so that's why Mtl does it. Isle do it because Sherback us also a great prospect although he's not playing full time in the NHL yet he's doing great in the AHL. Isles aren't making the playoff so their is no rush into his development their.

Mtl could also use Beauvillier for the playoff and that could bring him to the best level possible.

19 Jan 2017 01:57:29
Only reason I can't see islanders doing it is because uou just said they aren't making the playoffs, so maybe it'll be better for them to just keep Beauvillier and develop him more in their own organization rather than take another prospect and a pick. But that's just my reasoning on why they wouldn't do it. And he's also younger so might as well just keep him.

19 Jan 2017 04:08:18
You know what it's actually decent for Beauvillier especially since Sherbak has been pretty solid in the AHL this year. But I think now that Cappy is gone Beauvillier can finally be in the lineup consistently for the Isles.

17 Jan 2017 23:59:53
Boston :Bobby Orr

Mtl: Rocket Richard

To bad they weren't playing in the same era but are they clost in value? (when they were actully playing)

18 Jan 2017 00:57:17
Montreal adds.

18 Jan 2017 01:01:16
Not even close imo. There will never be a player like Bobby Orr

18 Jan 2017 01:33:55
People will probably say Habs add. however as a Habs fan it would be blasphemy to ever say anything against our Messiah.
Wish i could have seen either of em play.

18 Jan 2017 04:24:33
Bobby is worth more

19 Jan 2017 14:45:47
Even as a habs fan, Orr is worth more.

17 Jan 2017 23:36:33
MON: Juulsen, 3rd Round Pick 2017
ARZ: Doan, Hanzel

17 Jan 2017 23:48:10
Rather keep Julsen tbh. Julsen will become a good top 4 defensemen and is a good leader so why trade him for a center who isn't be on the offense side so basicly another Pleky. No thanks

18 Jan 2017 01:37:41
I agree McJHabs. was impressed with Juulsen at World Jr.
I wanna see guys like Doan and Iggy go to legitimate contender. Love my Habs. jus not 100% sold they are on same level as the elite. and those 2 deserve a cup. Also don't wanna see Habs give up a good asset for a 2 month rental.

18 Jan 2017 03:16:56
Habs pass: Doan and Hanzel are too slow
