Not sure about the trades Wilds probably needs to add but how much?

15 Mar 2015 12:40:17
I think the wild need to find new trade partners, I don't think these trades make much sense for the other teams involved.

15 Mar 2015 13:03:02
CBJ needs a deasent 2:nd goalie why not a veteran like Backstrom? They have good prospects in Dansk and Forsberg.

PIT wouldn't be sad to get Cook back, he scored just below half a point per game there.

MTL gets a former 1:st rounder that might become something if not they still get a 3:rd in a good draft.

The one that I feel is most off is the STL trade.

What would your suggestions on other teams be?

15 Mar 2015 14:04:40
Why would Columbus want 37 year old backstrom at 4$ million.His save % 887 this year.
Jackets have mcelhinney as a backup he's 31 with a 912 save % this year.why not resign him for 1 million to backup bobrovsky
Penguins don't have a need or cap room for Cooke at 3$million. Why would they so this.
Maybe buffalo wants you're overpaid washed up IMO players but I doubt that too.

14 Mar 2015 22:40:59
To Montreal: Nail Yakupov
To Edmonton: Nikita Sherbak, Nathan Beaulieu, Jarred Tinordi, 2016 2nd

16 Mar 2015 06:15:03
Are you an Oilers fan? The value up there isn't even close. You want the Habs to give up two good young D-Men, a top prospect and a 2nd for a flop. At least you tried.

16 Mar 2015 16:18:49
Unbelievable. Agree that the values here are off but YAK is not a flop.

I guess you would consider Pavel Datsuk a flop? He didn't make it to the NHL until he was 23. and YAk had better numbers in his 1st year.

Understand that these are young players with little to no support.

14 Mar 2015 09:18:27
Wishful thinking:
1. Trade Nikitin and try to trade Purcell. ( Horcoff was traded with a 7m contract, so this could be possible)
2. Hopefully oilers get 1st overall. If not, I hope it is 2nd overall. If not 1st or 2nd, use it as a trade for a #1 or 2 dman. For example, OEL for 3rd overall + 1st Rd (Pitts) + marnicin + pitlick or 2nd Rd pick (Montreal). If the last piece is not enough, swap it with 2016 1st Rd pk. Oilers need a dman. No more waiting for prospects to develop.
3. Use 2nd Rd pk (#32 or 33) for talbot (NYR goalie)
4. Send nurse and draistal to AHL.
If oilers get eichel, send him back to university. Allow them to develop.
5. Try to sign soderberg. If not, sign Roy. Good chemistry with Yak.
6. Try to sign a top 9 forward: glencross, Williams, ward, stradford, etc.
7. Sign a dman: green, franson, sekera, etc. I wish they could sign 2, but no chance.
8. Fire Lowe.
9. I wish edmontonians buy the oilers. Katz ruined the team. F*** moron.
10. Last chance for Mac T to do something right.

14 Mar 2015 16:10:05
1 both UFAs after next year, won't get much more than a bad contract in return IMO
2 top 3 picks are gold, "no more waiting for prospects" contradicts # 4
3 talbot is not the answer to edmontons goaltending woes IMO same mistake as the scrivens trade IMO
4 that's probably a good idea, maybe they're ready next year we'll see
5 he would fit nicely but does anybody really wanna sign in Edmonton if they have options.
6 Justin Williams I think could be a solid fit.
7 franson and sekera will be overpaid this year, might as we'll be the oilers I guess
8 yup
9 yup/ not the only person at fault
10 fire him too

14 Mar 2015 18:06:14
what I meant about not waiting for prospects is that do not draft hafinin in or strome. Use that pick for something now. Draistal and nurse hopefully should be ready for 2016-2017.

Also, I know that nikitin and Purcell are UFAs next season, but with those contracts it is hard to sign more than 1 free agent. Not much cap space left. Trade nikitin for 5th Rd or even 6th and retain 10%. Purcell I'm ok with him for another year. Leave him on the 3rd line with lander and hopefully a free agent.
Can you imagine this as the defence?
Klefbom - shultz
Nikitin -?
Ference - fayne
How dumb is MacT to call that a top pairing. What a goof shultz.

As for talbot, he is 27. Not young. I understand he has not even a season under his belt, but Jones from LA is even a worse bet. Also, neimi is not a fit with the oilers. They need a goalie. Who? Maybe mike smith? They could get him now for cheap because of the way he is playing.

15 Mar 2015 02:21:54
Were talking about oilers gm here you got to be patient with the guy is a bit of a slow poke when it come to building a good team!

15 Mar 2015 06:35:20
You are being too kind ;)

15 Mar 2015 17:55:04
yea that's wayy to genrous.

a more realistic description of MacT would be an incompetant fool whom is hired by a billionaire superfan that doesn care about winning and just wants to hang around the 80's Oiler dynasty players lol

14 Mar 2015 02:27:33
Dont panic Habs fan! Scherback is the top 6 forward that we will have!
Lets be real habs suck. But cary price is a god and a mvp and is Now clear number 2 or 1 of what he bring to his team of 2005 draft with Crosby

Pacioretty damn This guy is Now a superstar bether then kessel he play with average.

Now the problems: is not only no offense but its also flyn and Mitchell two joke that bring that loser mentality from bufallo what a waste of pick!

Since we got those guy were losing.

Petry is a good player but Beaulieu did the job before he came and Now he suck! Gonchar don't like playing less minute and its petry fault!

Smith fat pelly is a joke also! If sekac was here he would be a part of the solution!

So if habs are losing its Bergevin fault! There a old saying that's we don't fix something that is not Broke

There no way that habs win the cup so I rather be in buffalo situation cause at least there going to win something!

At the deadline Berg should have trade This
Pryce, gallagher and a first for
Kings: quick( injury prone), kopitar, toffoli

Now with This trade kings win big time cause short therm even without kopitar, king are a bether team then the habs, and toffoli is equal to gallagher and don't Forget pryce is a god and a game changer with that the kings would have win the cup! It would be the same thing for the blues!
Bergevin is scare of making big moves
Finaly the fact that habs don't have mcdonnaght its a big lost also!
i think that galchenuyk is kind of a disapointement he has to become one the best of the 2012 draft or a superstar at the least! The only 2 guys that can have a bether career then him is Murray and yakupov!

14 Mar 2015 11:49:04
So baisically you're saying that the only reason why the habs are first its because they have price and then you trade him?

14 Mar 2015 13:20:54
Ha You can't trade "god", he has a no trade

14 Mar 2015 17:18:12
Cdi yes cause like we could correct the real problem we cannot win lord Stanley with a average team and a amazing goalie

14 Mar 2015 17:20:24
This trade is absolutely terrible lol

25 Mar 2015 15:50:17
Lol, Scherbak is barley a top 6 forward in the CHL, let alone in the Nhl.

14 Mar 2015 02:04:00
Montreal needs a few top 6 forwards to help them with goal scoring

Montreal : tinordi, patryn, scherbak, 1st, desharnais
Sj: Thornton

edmonton: Jordan eberle, 2nd
Montreal: fucale, bournival, Eller

Fucale is by far the top goalie in the CHL & will be amazing in a few years . Montreals goalie depth is just too strong . Edmonton also adds young energy 3rd/4th line forward & Lars Eller who could play 2nd line for them for a player who isn't producing in Edmonton. Time for a change in Edmonton

Sanjose adds 2 big young defensive prospects who could easily make the team next year + a young future 30+ goal scorer in scherbak a first and a depth center man for jumbo joe who has recently told his GM to shut his mouth obviously some problems there .

14 Mar 2015 16:24:14
You Habs fans are the best.
Scherbek hasn't even had a 30 goal season in the CHL yet.

14 Mar 2015 21:36:14
Sorry your right he only had back to back 28 goal seasons playing on one of the worst teams

25 Mar 2015 15:29:48
Eberle for garbage, yeah ok.

13 Mar 2015 02:57:07
Habs need top line center Galchenyuk is still a few years away from being a nominating first line center.

Habs trade : 1st round draft pick, Fucale, Jared tinordi, Michael bournival, Lars Eller

SJ trades : Logan couture

San Jose gets future starting goalie, young top 6 D & young 4th/3rd liner & young center man habs could also add parenteau or desharnais
Montreal gains 1st line center they need .

Montreal lines

Smith pelley-Jacob DLR-Sherbak

13 Mar 2015 07:24:10
mtl adds. lots.

need names like beaulieau, scherbak, galchenyuk, gallagher, etc. to be in there, not bournival and eller.

13 Mar 2015 12:15:14
San Jose has no urge to trade Couture, only reason they would is if you have a higher ranking forward in return for Couture.
Examples include: Pacioretty, Galchenyuk, Gallagher
If it's Pacioretty the trade changes completley. But the prospects would have to include : Fucale, Beaulieu, De La Rose, and Scherbak

13 Mar 2015 13:46:09
If San Jose was willing to move couture they would want quality for him IMO.
I think San Jose might do this
Nathan beaulieu
Zach Fucale
1st round pick 2015
De la rose or scherbek
Logan couture
2nd round pick 2015

13 Mar 2015 20:38:12
Couture is not getting moved.

the teams is going to build around him and Pavelski going forward just because they are getting a large number of prospects doesn't make the deal worth it for them. Most of the players from Montreal will be depth guys. It a lot easier to find those types of player than it is to get guys like Couture. Montreal adds quality.

14 Mar 2015 01:55:13
After watching the beef between Thornton & SJA gm I think joe Thornton could potentially be an option for them during the off season & I don't think montreal would have to give up as much as they would have too for couture .

07 Mar 2015 03:20:02
Habs only two problème is that they need a first Line rw and a big center with This we could win the cup easy
Off season move: galchenyuk become the first Line center

Two years from Now put scherback has the first Line rw

LwTrade-pleckaneck or dergachev(draft)- gallagher
Mccaron- delarose- smith with a few less pounds
4 th Line who care?
Thomas Novak draft could be in the team but has a winger
Subban- markov
Beaulieu- free agent or trade
Petry- tinordi

With This habs are going to be Stanley cups champion

07 Mar 2015 16:03:44
Really good team depth especially the 4th line.
I'm not sure if Andrew Markov is a first pair defender on a Stanley cup team in a couple years.
Solid post

07 Mar 2015 17:25:43
Win the cup easily? You live in a world of your own. They are a good team but lack scoring in a big way. A top RW would help but there are a lot of good teams that are a couple players away from being elite.

07 Mar 2015 17:35:13
this is a terrible post

07 Mar 2015 22:08:41

03 Mar 2015 21:52:11
thanks for that LONG post lol

04 Mar 2015 00:36:07
Not sure what the hell Rutherford was thinking with that Despres trade. Glad to see Lovejoy back in Pittsburgh, but Despres has been great this season

02 Mar 2015 03:26:37
If Pens fail to make it to the conference finals and crosby struggles, maybe he wants a change of scenery

Mtl: Crosby, Scuderi (to make the cap work better)

Pitts: Parenteau, Eller, Bounival, De La Rose, Hudon, Emelin, Tornido, Fucale, 1st 2016, 1st 2017, 1st 2018

I like that tornido kid good potential is going to play a major rôle in This transaction Bahaha

02 Mar 2015 07:07:03
you can't be serious. can you?

just to go along with this lunacy, you try to get crosby without givng up none of subban, pacioretty, galchenyuk, price, or even a 1st this year? like what is this.

Can Montreal fans actually offer up some quality if they want quality or will every proposal only include eller tinordi de la rose emilin fucale and picks? No team wants 7 average or below average pieces for proven talent. Please let this end

^ Tinordi, De la Rose and Fucale could bring something decent to Montreal, but I agree they won't get a significant piece with Eller/Emelin/Parenteau.

However, unless any team is ready to lose for the next 5 years by giving all of their best players for Crosby, why would they trade for him? It's just ridiculous to ever think a player like him will change team via trade.

02 Mar 2015 23:40:53
you want crosby? start the deal with galchenyuk, de la rose and beaulieu + at least one first. see where that takes you

02 Mar 2015 02:40:00
MTL needs a goal scorer bad heading into the playoffs. Other than Pacioretty Montreal doesn't have much for goal scorers.

MTL: Simmonds
PHI: Eller & Tinordi(Big Dman that they are looking for) & Fucale(A goalie that could take them deep in the playoffs in a couple years) & 2nd MTL 2015 & 3rd 2016

Pacioretty DD Simmonds
Galchenyuk Plekanec Gallagher
Parenteau DLR DSP
Prust Malhotra Weise

Yess totally agree him or eberle

02 Mar 2015 18:28:24
As a flyers fan living in montreal, I'll tell you there is no way this trade would work for philly.
Eller has no need in philly, flyers need to remove centres, not add them.

I like Tinodri, but the flyers D prospects are pretty great right now. Wouldn't hate him but the Flyers have Morin who should be ready next year.

Fucale is a great prospect, him and Morin are good friends so if a player as avaluable as Simmonds gets moved, this would be a big piece they would want.

With that said.
For Simmonds who is maybe the 2nd best power forward in the league, with an amazing contract and hitting his prime.

I would say it's more like Fucale, Gallager, 2015 first and 2016 2nd.

Anyway, won't happen. Maybe they get B. schenn but Simmonds price is way too high for your package

@ReelBigA you seriously overvalue Simmonds. 2nd best power forward in the league? Are you crazy? I can think of two better on ANA (Perry and Getzlaf) let alone the league. Try to be realistic, I know it's hard for you as a Philly fan but come on

02 Mar 2015 23:49:26
simmonds for fucale, tinordi and a second would be more fair value. the habs fans would die if they say gallagher leave. he's the heart and soul of the team, habs FANS wouldn't take the deal if toronto ofered up kessel for gallagher 1 for 1. Gallagher is going nowhere

03 Mar 2015 15:45:20
@tspillz, Simmonds for Fucale, a overrated goalie who has played on great teams most of his junior career, Tinordi, a guy who can't skate, can't shoot, can't pass, and isn't that good of a fighter either and a late 2nd. Keep dreamin. And if habs fans wouldn't take Kessel for Gallagher, yeah right . Did you forget to take your medication today?

02 Mar 2015 02:39:59
MTL needs a goal scorer bad heading into the playoffs. Other than Pacioretty Montreal doesn't have much for goal scorers.

Pacioretty DD Simmonds
Galchenyuk Plekanec Gallagher
Parenteau DLR DSP

03 Mar 2015 15:50:19
Philly doesn't want a 4th line centre, a defenseman that sucks and a overrated goalie prospect for a proven power forward that is still young and hasn't reach his ceiling. Delusional, you habs fans are the worst on this site for over valuing all your players.

01 Mar 2015 20:13:35
mtl- parenteau

car- semin 50% retain
semin have 500 pts in 625 in nhl and was good in +/- ratio in 3 last year with a losing team. Salary his the only issue with him I think. at 3.5 M for 3 next year , good gamble , I don't think he's that toxic

mtl-eller 2nd round pick



if ottawa trade legwand rhey will need a physical 3rd line center 4 rebuild


Dal looking for a RH D



01 Mar 2015 20:55:20
so you're saying CAR will retain 50% of semin + the 4 mil on parenteau making him essentially a 7.5 millin dollar player, while MTL loses cap? not a chance.

01 Mar 2015 21:52:59
parenteau have only 1 year to his contact, u give him a shot and see what happen next summer if u resign him or waive him

Weise is playing first line right now, and now you have him playing 4th??

Parenteau have only one more year left at his contract.Carolina should play him next year and trade him at deadline for a pick

02 Mar 2015 01:32:18
still, for his production, 4 mil is very overpaid for parenteau. then you go and essentially pay him 7.5 mil for 1 year and give carolina 2 years after that of a dead 3.5 mil cap hit? no way that happens.

Ottawa already has the aggressive third line guy, Zac Smith.

Weise has been back on the 4th line last few games.

Habs are close to making real noise in the Playoffs. Polak, Lupul should put them just over the top to the finals. I know Lupuls contract sucks and he's injury prone, but these two would make a impact on a team that is just about there.

01 Mar 2015 17:36:53
MTL: Phanuef
TOR: Eller & Tinordi & 3rd

MTL: Yakapov
EDM: Emelin & Fucale

Patches DD Gallagher
Galchenyuk Plekanec Yakapov
Parenteau DLR DSP
Prust Malhotra Weise

Markov Subban
Beaulieu Phanuef
Gonchar Gilbert

Price Tokarski

Not giving tinordi for phaneuf .

throw in emelin and forget your yakupov trade

I don't know why habs think Tinordi is so great, he's a slow skater , he can't shoot the puck or even pass it well , he can fight but that's about it.

Why would you want Emelin, then you just take on more cap and Tinordi is capable of doing the same job as him for a much cheaper price.

Leafs would need to add. but Habs don't want sad-sack Phaneuf around anyway

28 Feb 2015 19:19:59
MTL: Eller & Parenteau(retain 35%) & Fucale & Tinordi & 3rd 2015
DAL: Eakin & Ritchie

DAL gets a couple of forwards to replace Eakin and Ritchie, a future starter in NHL, and a young big bodied dman.

MTL gets size up front and a more offensive forward in Eakin.

Patches DD Gallagher
Galchenyuk Plekanec DSP
Eakin DLR Ritchie
Prust Bournival/Malhotra Weise

Why do the habs do this? They give up one of their best defensive prospects and close to a Top 5 goalie prospect.

A Habs fan telling a Habs fan that the trade is stupid. Interesting

This doesn't help the Habs at all, makes them worse

28 Feb 2015 18:25:09
mtl- parenteau

car-semin 50%retain

mtl eller 3rd pick

ott- ceci or gryba

Hahahahha cei for eller and a third. O man that made my day

I wish HABS could get Ceci for that

Semin? R U nuts! 3rd worst contract in NHl today after Phaneuf and Clarkson

Do observe the phrase 50% retained Boris. With a 3.5 miles cap hit Semin could be moved. The change of scenery could be very beneficial and he's only signed for 3 more years.

Ok eller and 2nd pick for gryba is it better?

50% of garbage is still garbage

28 Feb 2015 17:01:08
28 Feb 2015

To Mtl: Eric Cole
To Dal: 2nd 2015

To Mtl: Micheal Ryder
To Njd: 3rd 2015

MTL be like "Hey let's just trade for the players we already had before, had a chance to resign but didn't because we didn't needed them"

No. thanks.

You don't send a conditional pick for re-signing for a player that atleast has a year left on his contract. Ever.

Iginla will still have 2 years to his contract, parenteau will be sign next year too and cole will never comeback to mtl

The conditional is if Cole signs with MTL next year. I wouldn't think either MTL or Cole would pursue those options though, but just for insurance reasons. I'm only interested in him for the remainder of this season and the playoffs.

I realize Iginla is signed for the next two seasons and I'd be happy with that. Better than what we currently have and is still playing well, I think he has two or more years left. Parenteau still has one year on his deal, and his recent history hasn't looked great, not that he's done by any means. Iginla just presents a scoring, physical, and consistency upgrade.
And again I don't want to sign Cole next year. We would be rid of Parenteau's $4.0M contract that is currently owed to him.

Habs are stuck with Parenteau till his contract expires.
