How would a Yak to MTL sound reason being he was really good with Galchenyuk.

Edmonton Oilers:
- Nail Yakupov
- (2018) 2nd round pick
- Liro Pakarinen
Montreal Canadiens:
- Nathan Beaulieau

24 Sep 2016 16:00:27
Nathan for nail straight up! He's not that good to deserve anything else coming back to mtl.

24 Sep 2016 09:13:56
- Sven Andrighetto
- David Deharnhais
- (2018) 2nd round pick
- (2017) 7th round pick

- Alexei Emelin
- (2017) 3rd round pick
New Jersey:
- (2018) 7th round pick

Just Cap dumping ideas.

24 Sep 2016 13:25:15
Way to much to Dump Deharnais his contract is better then Emilins.

22 Sep 2016 23:48:34
D - Nathan Beaulieu
RW - Sven Andrighetto
C - Pavel Zacha
2017 Fifth Round Pick.

23 Sep 2016 00:57:49
Probably closer if you take out Zacha honestly lol.

23 Sep 2016 00:58:19
No way from Jersey.

23 Sep 2016 01:36:37
New Jersey rips off their ears after hearing that offer.

23 Sep 2016 02:38:27
wow, add a first and sherbak and maybe.

23 Sep 2016 04:27:32
Habs pass.

23 Sep 2016 06:33:59
If you're serious Boris, That's hilarious.

23 Sep 2016 12:15:20
Boris is hilarious.
*Habs win deal by a landslide*
"Hab's pass"

23 Sep 2016 13:28:42
Boris is right. NJ needs to add, maybe hall.

22 Sep 2016 18:05:39
mtl pacioretty- beaulieu-2nd pick in 2018

tb drouin killhorn

so tb can move coburn or garrison for cap space

habs get a decent top 6
assuming segachev is nhl ready


22 Sep 2016 19:19:28
Habs say no.

22 Sep 2016 21:25:20
T. B says HEL NO.

22 Sep 2016 21:58:56
I'd Do Drouin for Patchs.

22 Sep 2016 22:46:00
Well according to BJ, Garrison will never be moved. So Coburn will need to be traded. But besides that, table loses that trade IMO, but it's not bad actually.

VB if you would do Drouin for Patches you're insane. No way man.

22 Sep 2016 23:36:25
Lol. Tamps passes.

23 Sep 2016 05:22:32
Not never, just not likely imo. I'm sure they'd look at a few other options before dumping Garrison.

22 Sep 2016 14:36:45
Habs: Coyle and Suter

wild: pacioretty, Beaulieu and Carr.

22 Sep 2016 16:50:39
Coyle= Beaulieu and Carr

Maybe switch Carr with Scherbak and add a 3rd.

But still would leave big hole in LW for Montreal and huge hole for Minnisota at D.

22 Sep 2016 17:53:30
Uhm. No, Coyle doesn't equal Beaulieu and Carr. Coyle over that duo 10 outve 10 times without a doubt. Not even close. I'd say Patch > Coyle and Suter >>> Beaulieu and Carr.

22 Sep 2016 19:36:03
Huge no from Minnesota wow.

22 Sep 2016 22:02:57
Patchs>>>>>Coyle. What would you rather have. A less then average 2nd liner/ great 3rd liner or a consistent 35+ goal scorer. I sware Coyle must be the most overated player in the NHL to be even compared to Patchs.

22 Sep 2016 22:51:14
@VB clearly you've never watched Coyle play before. He's not overrated at all, underrated for his all around game if anything.

23 Sep 2016 01:30:02
Patches is a better guy to have on a top line when he's your go to guy that all your offence runs through. Obviously he's going to put up numbers on the habs, they have no one else that can score. Coyle is a big all round good player that doesn't put up big numbers but never hurts you either. I wouldn't give up patches straight up for coyle today, but to say patches>>>>> is dead wrong. Did you watch the World Cup? When pacioretty wasn't the go to guy that everyone had to give the puck to Everytime he was on the ice, he was terrible. If he's not scoring, he's doing nothing. Well other than assisting on 2 of Canada's goals and one of Europes.

23 Sep 2016 04:05:42
To say you'd rather have Coyle instead of Patches straight up. Um. I guess that's your opinion.

23 Sep 2016 04:06:19
I agree with you, but that's tough to not take Patches.

23 Sep 2016 10:54:39
Nobody said they would rather have Coyle then Patches McJ?

22 Sep 2016 07:45:40
Max Paccioretty
Nathan Beaulieu
Cam Fowler
Nick Ritchie
Rickard Rakell
3rd round pick.

22 Sep 2016 09:21:30
Why tho

22 Sep 2016 16:56:00
Montreal downgrades big time offensively and barely upgrades on the defensive end so no from them. Plus I feel like ritchie won't be anything more than a 3rd-4th like player.

22 Sep 2016 04:52:19
TBL : Drouin, 1st
MTL : Pacioretty, 2nd


TBL : Kucherov
MTL : Pacioretty, 2nd

Thoughts on value? Never going to happen but hey why not.

22 Sep 2016 09:13:09
Both favor Montreal. No from Tampa on both.

22 Sep 2016 18:18:41
Kucherov would fetch Paceioretty and a 1st +

I really doubt Lighting would do that.

23 Sep 2016 02:23:04
Tampa is not adding to drouin to get pacioretty lol that kid showed what he's capable of on a big stage, in huge games in the playoffs. He's going to breakout and Tampa will want him to do that for them on his ELC. If he's going it will take a lot. And they won't be sweetening the pot to move him.

20 Sep 2016 04:48:05
(DAL) right to Nichushkin
(MTL) 2nd Round

(EDM) Nail Yakupov, 2nd Round
(MTL) Nathan Beaulieu

Sign Alexander Semin 1 x 1yr)

Pattioretty - Galchenyuk - Yakupov
Nichushkin - Plekanec - Gallagher
Lekhonen - Shaw - Radulov
Carr - Danault - Semin

Emelin - Weber

20 Sep 2016 14:40:18
Oilers don't have Nikitin anymore.

22 Sep 2016 03:33:29
Habs pass.

22 Sep 2016 05:24:24
Nichushkin and Semin are in the KHL.

18 Sep 2016 06:59:41
No from Calgary
No from Edmonton
No from Montreal
No from Edmonton
No from Ottawa.

18 Sep 2016 15:38:23
Why does Montreal want to rebuild? . this was a 100+ point team the year before Price was hurt.
Yes. it would be nice for some improvements. however. other GMS aren't going to be swindled in to taking our bad contracts. to get . ya have to give. and I jus don't see Habs having a lot to give. other than some core peices that I wouldn't want to see go.

18 Sep 2016 21:37:11
Montreal is stuck with boat anchor contract Plekanic. Oilers do not want him.
Delete RNH from trade rumors. Future Selke candidate is staying put unless it nets a true #1 Dman after the vegas draft. Yak for 1st and 3rd is a possibility.

Calgary is stuck with Wideman. No one wants the penalty drawing machine. Habs needs Markov to train their awesome new Russian dman draft pick. No way habs trade him.

Dion would fit in Mtl, but Mtl needs to give up more.

18 Sep 2016 23:55:43
K99 you're right on with plekanec, kind of on with RNH. He shouldn't go anywhere unless you get a real good D man however thinking he is going to fetch you a true #1 defensman is a pipe dream, and yak is not getting a first and 3rd. Keep him. How many true number 1 dmen are in the league? And how many get traded? I can think of 2 being traded in the last number of years and they were traded for each other lol Weber and subban. Unfortunately not for a real good young 2nd line centre.

19 Sep 2016 01:13:06
agree rnh alone won't get the #1 D man but he and another asset or 2 should net one or he needs to be kept.

If Yak doesn't get a 1 and a 3 yes keep him.

19 Sep 2016 02:41:12
Big no from Habs to all of these horrible deals

REL MTL: Andrei Markov, 7th
CGY: Dennis Wideman

why would Habs add a 7th? Markov had 44 pts last season, and 50 pts the prior year that. and he hasn't missed a game due to injury in past 4 seasons
Wideman is useless, 19 pts last year and is heading to AHL.

19 Sep 2016 02:49:44
Plejhan had morb points the RNH, Habs don't want to get worse and pick up a bad longtrem contract

Oils need to offer up Nurse and Draisaitl (they can keep RNH and the Yakster)

19 Sep 2016 02:51:25
Sens can keep Celine Dion.

17 Sep 2016 21:54:24
Edmonton Trades:
Nail Yakupov
Benoit Pouliot - 25% Retained
2017 2nd Round Pick

Montreal Trades:
Nathan Beaulieu
Stefan Matteau
David Desharnais - 25% Retained
2018 4th Round Pick

- Montreal gets a winger who might work well with either Radulov or Galchenyuk.
- Montreal also gets a pick, and a player with size who they could use, but is mainly just a cap dump.
- Edmonton acquires a top 6 d-man who will turn into a nice top 4 for them, and will help their terrible d-core.
- They get rid of Pouliot, and get a younger (cheaper, maybe worse) version of him in Matteau.

(My take; Yakupov + 2nd=Beaulieu + Matteau; Desharnais, 4th = Pouliot)

(After this Habs sign Kris Russell to 3.5 Million/ 1 year deal)

Habs lines:
Alexander Radulov - Alex Galchenyuk - Nail Yakupov
Max Pacioretty - Tomas Plekanec - Brendan Gallagher
Benoit Pouliot - Andrew Shaw - Arrti Lekhonen
Daniel Carr - Philip Danault - Sven Andrighetto
*Paul Byron

Shea Weber - Kris Russell
Jeff Petry - Andrei Markov
Alexei Emelin - Greg Pateryn

Oilers lines:
Jordan Eberle - Connor McDavid - Milan Lucic
Jesse Puljujuarvi - Leon Draisital - Patrick Maroon
Stefan Matteau - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - David Desharnais
Zach Kassian - Mark Letestu - Matt Hendricks

Adam Larsson - Nathan Beaulieu
Darnell Nurse - Andrej Sekera
Brandon Davidson - Griffin Reinhart

Thoughts or Tweaks?

17 Sep 2016 22:38:07
Yak plus a 2nd doesn't equal a future top 4 def. Edmonton needs to give something to get something. Again, look what it cost them to get Larsson. It was Hall or nothing. (Of course Mcdavid is off the table) . The value for these top drafted players is not as high as Oiler fans would like. Montreal would probably counter with Beaulio plus for Drai or Eberle. I doubt Chia has the stomach for another risky move right now.

17 Sep 2016 22:56:04
Oilers say no. Only thing there worth anything is Beaulieu, but Edmonton already has 90 LHD. The rest aren't going to help Edmonton. Also your lineup for Oilers are so off idk why you bothered tbh.

17 Sep 2016 23:32:46
Wouldn't say Pouliot is a cap dump at 25% retained.

17 Sep 2016 23:55:41
Pinball 2, you don't need to talk about the Hall trade every time you see an Oilers trade lol. Beaulieu is neither a right defensman nor on a team that has little to no defensive depth like the Devils, also his defensive game is not near anywhere Bealieu is, So an Early second and Yakupov doesn't equal Beaulieu? trades like that have surely happened in the past. But I remembered, you're pinball 2.0, your hockey knowledge is questionable.

18 Sep 2016 01:06:16
@McJesus how can they have 90 LHD if a team can only have 50 contracts?

18 Sep 2016 04:23:19
Habs can't afford to get rid of Beaulieu. so he stood up for his captain . Owner he's on the block
Get rid of Therrien and Bergevin can join him.

18 Sep 2016 06:19:30
Oilers would also be retaining on 3 more seasons of pouliot compared to habs retaining on one more year of DD. Doesn't make sense on many levels for oilers.

18 Sep 2016 06:25:21
Oils add Nurse, but they can keep Yak and Pouliot.

18 Sep 2016 22:19:21
OH dear. where to begin with this.
1. Edm has no 2nd round pick in 2017, this needs to get deleted.

2. Edm does not want to "dump" Pouliot as he's a good value for his contract value. No retention on him or by mtl.

3. montreal pick deleted Add Serganchev.

Sorry Borge your assesment on Yak is a joke. Leon and Ebs are untouchable and no way to be included in a deal that does not include Webber.

Boris not a prayer for Nurse to be included in the deal.

17 Sep 2016 20:30:44
I see the potential in Beaulieu however I don't think Bergevin does so.

Montreal: Nathan Beaulieu, David Desharnais, 3rd round (2017)

Columbus: Jack Johnson


Montreal: Nathan Beaulieu

Dallas: Valeri Nichushkin

or Montreal: Nathan Beaulieu, Charles Hudon

Columbus: Ryan Murray.

17 Sep 2016 20:43:47
3rd proposal is hilarious.

17 Sep 2016 21:00:00
No to all of them.

17 Sep 2016 22:57:21
The closest trade is the Dallas one but idk about it.

18 Sep 2016 04:24:31
I like the last one.
Bet Columbus doesn't.

18 Sep 2016 06:21:08
Last one is laughable. Others are closer but a no from all probably.

18 Sep 2016 06:21:08
Last one is laughable. Others are closer but a no from all probably.

17 Sep 2016 01:59:35
Montreal should

Fire Therrian/ Hire Roy

Trade 2nd + DD to Colorado for Iginla

Way different team that plays different.

17 Sep 2016 17:13:36
I agree with the firing of therrian part.

17 Sep 2016 17:21:28
Kirk Muller will be the next coach and Colorado
Passes on that garbage.

18 Sep 2016 06:36:06
Habs should NOT hire Roy as a coach.

18 Sep 2016 06:36:06
Habs should NOT hire Roy as a coach.

18 Sep 2016 23:13:05
Hiring Roy would be a big mistake, Muller more likely to take over if therrien gets canned.

16 Sep 2016 09:26:01
Dallas receives Alex Kokhlachev and a second round pick.
Boston receives Valeri Nichushkin.

Is this fair value? Also

Yakupov for Kokhlachev?

Heard the habs are shopping Beaulieu so can he get a return like Yak, Koko or Nuke?

16 Sep 2016 12:37:16
I could see Beaulieu for Nichishkin or Khoklachev, but Oilers don't need Beaulieu.

16 Sep 2016 18:13:59
Hey koko is going khl right.

18 Sep 2016 05:49:54
Habs better off keeping Beaulieu.

18 Sep 2016 05:49:54
Habs better off keeping Beaulieu.

16 Sep 2016 01:52:28
ottawa: anderson
montreal: fucale

who adds?

16 Sep 2016 06:40:39
No from both, especially MTL, Ottawa wants to win now and Montreal has no need for Anderson.

16 Sep 2016 12:46:33
Maybe Hammond for Fucale, but no way.

16 Sep 2016 15:21:51
Anderson>>>Fucale, so Montreal adds.

18 Sep 2016 05:50:26
Habs pass . why?

18 Sep 2016 05:50:26
Habs pass . why?

15 Sep 2016 03:01:17
Men price look bad! They would be wise to trade him to the oiler or leaf while he got value

Mon: price

Edm: draisaitil, jeese p and 2 first


Mon: price

Tor: nylander, marner, mattews

With all that being said every media in Canada say that pietrengelo is god awful and that he should be bench!

15 Sep 2016 07:19:53
lol um absolutely effing no from Edmonton. And also no from leafs. And the fact Oilers added more made me throw up a bit.

15 Sep 2016 07:24:52

15 Sep 2016 11:38:04
Montrealfinest go back to your original account.

15 Sep 2016 12:29:47
Bigger no from leafs IMO but those are both terrible.

15 Sep 2016 14:32:43
Wtf is this garbage. Leafs/ oilers take 3 steps back if they do this. Even NHL17 says no lmao. Sad attempt.

15 Sep 2016 16:41:42
Hahaha are you high? Price is leaving Montreal after next year anyways. No Wayne re signs with the Habs, they are on a downward spiral!

15 Sep 2016 16:42:36
Not a single goalie in the history of hockey that's worth that much. Leafs and Oilers just locked up goaltenders for 5 and 3 years respectively. Both of whom are starting goalies capable of stealing games for their teams. You are actually delusional if you think these are even close. I wouldn't do Drai and JP alone for Price let alone adding 2 1st's. Doubt the leafs would do Matthews for Price straight up.

Price just cam off a season ending injury. While i am sure he will return to his original form, there is still some uncertainty with his last few lower body injuries.

No team is going to give up their future for a goalie period.

Even though its clearly just a little rust, you sound worried that Price isn't going to be himself again.

15 Sep 2016 17:22:40
how about this:
edmonton: talbot
montreal: scherbak, galchenyuk, 2 1st

that's how stupid your trade looks.

15 Sep 2016 18:37:21
No way Price gets you 4 top 4 draft picks.

15 Sep 2016 20:04:44
Lol youjust compare price to that no good Talbot.

15 Sep 2016 23:16:50
Kaners trade proposal is better then both bigjoes and he was completely joking.

16 Sep 2016 00:27:19
No matter how many different accounts you use, there's no hiding your bias stupidity.

16 Sep 2016 02:11:38
exactly shootsmcgee. just because price is an elite goalie doesn't mean he can get you all that. and talbot is edmonton's starter so i chose to go with him. what? do you want me to use my favorite team, chicago blackhawks', goalie as comparison instead? how about crawford for scherbak, galchenyuk and 2 firsts instead? closer? no? then don't think price will get that. need i keep going with goalies? does fleury get that for pittsburgh? no? i'm just making the point that your trade looked stupid.

17 Sep 2016 22:16:23
Kane holtby or Quick could get that.

14 Sep 2016 20:55:41
mtl- emelin-mitchell

nsh- colin wilson.

14 Sep 2016 21:56:51
Easy no from Preda.

15 Sep 2016 05:28:27
Wilson has a lot more value to Nashville than that.

15 Sep 2016 13:31:38
Wilson has a lot more value to anyone with a brain than that.

15 Sep 2016 14:13:20
6g 24 pts 4 m a year then what callahan is worth.

13 Sep 2016 05:16:34
NYI : Strome, 5th

MTL : Juulsen, Andrighetto, 2nd.

13 Sep 2016 06:21:04
I think Isles would rather try and resign Strome.

13 Sep 2016 06:30:25
Add a better prospect then Ghetto (not named Sergachev) and it could be a deal.

13 Sep 2016 12:52:09
I could live with Hudon or Scherbak taking Andrighetto's place in that trade.

14 Sep 2016 00:59:54
NYI : Strome, 4th

MTL : Juulsen, Sherback, 2nd.

14 Sep 2016 09:34:04
Yeah that's kinda what I was think Boris. Good trade imo.

12 Sep 2016 17:28:16
De La Rose


12 Sep 2016 18:39:39
No way from Montreal man.

12 Sep 2016 21:49:01
No way from Philly.
Couturier >>> Patches
DLR > Morin
montreal adds a lot here. at least a 1st round.

13 Sep 2016 01:28:35
Pacioretty is so overated, worst captain in Montreals history.

13 Sep 2016 00:20:22
Couturier has been in the league 5 seasons, Yet to reach 40 points in a season.

13 Sep 2016 01:17:00
"Couturier > Patches"

Your funny.

"Couturier >>> Patches"

Your hysterical.

13 Sep 2016 04:05:46
coutourier doesn't come close to patches, yes couts is awesome, coming into his game but will never have the offensive upside of patches for the next 5 years at any point of his career,

im a leaf fan and i can honestly say top line of patches and giroux and vorcheck is scary,

couts on the 3rd line in a defensive role isn't scary.

13 Sep 2016 05:01:29
@Kaner88 Couturier a lot better than Pacioretty? What are you smoking. Couturier has never gotten more than 39 pts or 15 goals in a season compared to a guy who scored 60+ pts last 3 season and scored 106 goals during that time.

13 Sep 2016 06:27:24
Lol um Patches > Couturier.

13 Sep 2016 20:25:04
Not really a fair comparison considering they're two completely different players. Offensively patches is miles ahead but couts is an all-world defensive centre. I'd say both teams say no.

14 Sep 2016 01:00:40
Flyers add Giroux.
