30 Apr 2016 18:39:23
Assuming everyone stays in their draft positions:

Mtl: 1st (9th), Andrighetto, Hudon, 2nd, 2nd (minnesota)

Van: 1st (3rd), 7th

Draft pulijarvii.

30 Apr 2016 19:07:22
Vancouver starts a riot in Montreal.

30 Apr 2016 19:48:48
honestly too much coming from montreal, but i don't know if the nucks take it.

30 Apr 2016 19:56:56
Not even close.

30 Apr 2016 20:10:03
To many spare parts and not enough quality pieces to move up from 9th 3rd especially in this draft.

29 Apr 2016 01:35:38
Edm: Brodin

Min: RNH

Edm: 9th overall, Mitchell, 3rd

Mtl: Yak

Edm: Jvr, Michalek (retain 50%)

Tor: 9th overall Ference, 3rd

Edm: Shaw, Bickell, Trevor VR, 4th

Chi: Davidson, Michalek (cap is only 2m)

29 Apr 2016 02:01:02
Did I just read Yak for 9th overall, Mitchell and a 3rd? WOW.

29 Apr 2016 02:19:22
I wish yak would get a 1st round pick :* (

29 Apr 2016 07:22:48
Jesus Christ only thing plausible is the first trade every thing after that is ridiculous. Hang your head in shame.

29 Apr 2016 11:39:57
I'd consider the JVR trade but I would probably like a sweetner and yeah Yak won't fetch a top 10 pick I doubt even top 20.

29 Apr 2016 14:28:52
The reason why I put the 9th overall pick because Mtl would be the only team to do it because yak and galchenyak played together, personally I don't think he's worth that but mtl would be a team to consider it
instead of mtl adding a later pick edm adds a mid/ late pick then.

29 Apr 2016 16:51:33
"Edm: 9th overall, Mitchell, 3rd
Mtl: Yak"?

That is a good one. Yak couldn't fetch a late second round pick. Thinking that Montreal would give their first round pick is completely ridiculous!

30 Apr 2016 13:11:57
First, Yak gets 9th overall+. Already ridiculous.
Then you turn around and swap that pick to TO for things Edm doesn't need? Where's your head at?

30 Apr 2016 13:54:30
Lol Yak for 9th overall + Mitchell + 3rd is worse than some of Pinballs trades.
A more realistic trade would be Yak for 2nd + 4th.

29 Apr 2016 00:24:03
How are these trades?

Leafs: WSH 2nd and holland

Chi: Shaw and Bickle

Chi gets cap and leafs get there long time 3rd line Checker.

Leafs: Lupal and 4th

NJD: R. Clowe

Just a cap move.

Tor: Gabriel Carllson and Kerby Rychal

CLB: T. Bozak, Tony Cameransi, S. Percy and 4th

Leafs get a shut down D and a young strong 3rd line winger. CLB gets the best player in the trade a good 2nd line center And a couple good prospects.

Tor: JVR

Mon: 1st (9th) or Win:Trouba or Flames: Hamilton.

Mon gets a top line winger and Tor gets a very strong prospect. Sergechev, Chychrun or Olli Julivi. The other trades are only if Montreal dosent do that. I'll be dissapointed if JVR is back next season.

29 Apr 2016 00:50:47
1st one isn't bad but the rest not so good.

29 Apr 2016 01:00:20
Oh hell no from CBJ.

29 Apr 2016 01:03:47
Columbus trade is terrible for the Blue Jackets.

29 Apr 2016 02:11:06
Yah what would it take to get Gabriel Carlsson? He looks like he'll be a good shutdown D?

29 Apr 2016 02:37:23
Didn't Toronto trade that pick to Columbus?

29 Apr 2016 09:05:33
@vbb considering Carlsson was just drafted in 2015 and he's the the type of player CBJ needs, it would be an overpayment you wouldn't like. CBJ needs D and the only one the Leafs have that they would want would be Reilly. Obvious no way Reilly goes anywhere. Maybe Dermott and a pick? Idk let's just say he's not going anywhere anytime soon imo.

29 Apr 2016 09:49:12
wait why in the world would the leafs make that first trade with chicago, they are rebuilding and the are what taking on a very bad contract in bickel and shaw who really isn't going to be helping us any time soon and we are giving up two futures? aww hell naw :)

29 Apr 2016 14:05:34
Why would the leafs give up a 4th when Clowe's contract is worse? Anyways dumb trades.

30 Apr 2016 05:04:52
terrible trade for the Jets for 2 years of Jvr.

28 Apr 2016 16:53:20
Nichushkin, Dallas
Scherbak + 2 round pick 2016 , MTL.

28 Apr 2016 00:12:33
I've not yet posted a trade on here. So I'm going to give it a try. If everyone thinks it sucks I won't try again.

EDM: Yakupov, 2nd round pick (32)

MTL: Juulsen, 2nd round pick (39)

28 Apr 2016 01:10:35
doubt MTL would give that mush for yak even they think he may be a good fit.

28 Apr 2016 01:19:47
Edmonton doesn't have the second pick anymore sent it to Boston cause we hired cherillia.

28 Apr 2016 01:22:23
Please don't try again.

28 Apr 2016 03:04:58
Don't worry about what people think most are biased up the yin yang.

28 Apr 2016 03:07:23
It's not bad dude, defiantly not like some of the trades on here the one thing is I don't think Montreals GM has the balls to pull a trade like this.

28 Apr 2016 04:28:22
mtl jumps at it. edmonton not so much.

28 Apr 2016 05:28:11
Oilers4cup Oilers do have a 2nd round pick this year. They can pick either this year or 2017 to give to Boston.

28 Apr 2016 05:56:27
@moose85 o actually what I read was the oilers gave the 2016 pick thanks.

28 Apr 2016 09:13:20

I completely agree.

27 Apr 2016 02:22:41
How is this Subban trade?

CLB: Johnson Rychal/ Hartnall and 5th overall ( A dman most likely

Mon: Subban

Who adds? Keep in mind Montreal would much rather trade to the west so they may have to over pay.

27 Apr 2016 02:46:03
I think that's an overpayment by Columbus. Subban has a monster contract, and it's just too much coming from Columbus.

26 Apr 2016 07:51:10
Subban (retained 20%=7.2 mill)
Eberle (retained 15%=5.1 mill)
Yakupov (2.5mill)
Reinhart (1mill)
32 OVA pick (2nd rd)

26 Apr 2016 08:14:51
This is definitely one of the better Subban to Edm trades, I know there are speculations that Bergevin will trade him if it's the right return with needs coming back, Montreal is a pretty decent offensive team, but it doesn't get you deep into the playoffs unless you have more than 3 goals a game consistently, which they weren't, they were getting less, Reinhart seems to be the only liability to this as he's only a solid top 6 d-man at the momentand they're expecting someone to fill his role and not many d-men in the free agency can fix Subbans whole role if he leaves. But other than that, the value seems close to fair, love how you played with the salaries and Ebs, Yak could have a chance to excel in the much less competitive East.

26 Apr 2016 12:13:51
The only thing of real value coming back from that trade for Subban is Eberle. Bergevin stated that he isn't shopping him so I doubt they would accept a package like this. Easy no for Montreal.

26 Apr 2016 14:48:55
Change Reinhart to sekera and edm also take bake David desharnais sorry but spelling.

26 Apr 2016 14:59:44
That's also a lot of years of retaining Subban's salary. Paying him to be as *cringe* good as he has in the past, for another team- doesn't really make sense. (It's like Toronto paying Kessel to score 26 goals this year. )

26 Apr 2016 16:41:30
Subban for Hall and Edmonton's first. That should be the base of the trade. Still think Montreal looses that trade. I just don't think you can replace what Subban brings to blue line.

26 Apr 2016 16:42:01
Switch Reinhart for nurse.

26 Apr 2016 18:41:25
Not enough for subban.

26 Apr 2016 20:43:26
BenderLife I think that's a really fair trade to do.

I've seen in other trade forums people are suggesting

Hall + 1st round pick + Eberle + Yak for just Subban.
or even this crazy
Hall + 1st round pick + Klefbom + Eberle and throwing in Yak for Subban and eller

That's just a crazy over payment as well over value of Subban. He's a great dman but he's not that great. Oilers can find better ways to get what they need without selling the house for 1 player.

26 Apr 2016 22:51:03
Pk is not worth hall and possibly the first or second overall. More like

Pk for hall and klefborn.

27 Apr 2016 00:44:42
Edmonton wants a d-man. Everyone knows they want a d-man. D-men are at a premium. Use the Hamilton trade as a templat, then add to that. Nobody is going to help Edmonton out of their mess. If you want a top d-man get ready to pay. You may not like it but that is how it will be.

27 Apr 2016 02:05:21
What are you talking about, Vancity? Every team has needs. All GMs look to other teams to get something they need and try to pay for it with what they can give up. They're not petty high school girls, they're professionals. If a deal is there to be made, it's not going to be one-sided just because edmonton needs a dman. Chiarelli isn't going to say yes to whatever is demanded just because he needs a dman. Use your head.

27 Apr 2016 04:13:23
That's exactly my point Chirp!

27 Apr 2016 14:03:05
Yes but a 2nd line right winger and a 2 round pick, plus a bunch of crap will not get you an all-star defenseman. Edmonton fans if all your players are so good, why does your team suck. It's like Toronto fans trading Lupul for anything. Toronto you are stuck with Lupul and might be able to buy him out next summer. Edmonton will have to sell low on it's players till they prove they can win.
Edmonton will say we had injuries. St. Louis had way more injuries and they still managed 107 pts. Its been 10 years into your rebuild and you managed 2nd last. Worse than last year. I just don't see the value in Edmonton players.

27 Apr 2016 20:43:31
Yeah your right the Oilers suck. None of there players have any value. Nice logic on that one.

26 Apr 2016 03:23:37
Van- Burrows

Mtl- 2018 2nd.

26 Apr 2016 04:19:30
I'd be surprised if Burrows could fetch a 4th.

26 Apr 2016 08:34:08
Burrows has slid big time in the last couple years. He is a 3/ 4 line bit player at best nowadays. I agree, he'd get a 4th or 5th at best.

26 Apr 2016 13:29:11
Burrows will be bought out this summer. You can have him. His best days are long gone.

25 Apr 2016 03:39:07
I'd like to see a trade go down between Carolina and Montreal centering around Thomas Plekanec going to Carolina and Jeff Skinner coming to Montreal, the hurricanes are pretty weak on defense and goaltending as well.

Potential trade:

Thomas Plekanec
Alexei Emelin
Zachary Fucale

Jeff Skinner

25 Apr 2016 14:59:21
That's just terrible.

23 Apr 2016 18:20:19
If I were the Rangers I'd make these trades to make a retool because in a couple years if they continue what there doing it will be a painful rebuild.

NYR: Giradi 5.5mil and K. Hayes

ARI: C. Dovorak/ B. Perlini

NYR dump there worst contract and get a really good prospect that they need. Ari dose this to get Kevin Hayes.

Nyr: R. Nash 7.8 mil

Tor: Percy, Komarov, Bracco and pits 1st

Nyr dose this for cap reasons and to get 3 strong prospects and a replacement for Hayes. Leafs do this to make a 3 way trade with retained cap.

(The Rangers then sign Stammer for 10.5 mil)
I think these trades make the Rangers better short term and long term with the addition of Stammer.

The leafs could then trade Nash
Leafs: Nash ( 2.8 mil retained 5mil salery) P. Holland and WSH 2nd

Mon: 9th overall and Mccaron

I'd do it from both teams perspective.

23 Apr 2016 18:30:09
Why would the leafs do that?

23 Apr 2016 18:38:40
No way leafs make that trade although I believe leafs could look at Girardi but believe they want kreider to tale that contract but not for that package.

23 Apr 2016 20:16:07
Thé leaf add but no way hab do this.

24 Apr 2016 04:40:33
Nash, a late 2nd and Holland won't get a top 10 pick and one of the Habs top prospects. Even at salary retained 36 point Nash in 60 games will not bring back a return like that.

22 Apr 2016 17:24:55
I seen a trade similar to this.

Leafs: Edm 1st (4th) and Ferrance

Tor: C. Brown, T. Dermotte, Pits 1st, J. GardinerG. and K. Kappnen/ L. Komarov

Leafs get a great prospect like Tkachuk or Chychrun.

Another trade that wouldn't be bad is

JVR to Montreal for Alex Nylander.

22 Apr 2016 17:51:19
Overpayment from the leafs, oilers can keep there pick and leafs will keep there's.

22 Apr 2016 18:21:57
Thats an awful lot of things that Edmonton does not need or want. I'd rather move it for one solid piece, or just draft a good prospect.

23 Apr 2016 02:59:24
Hehhehe you think the leafs would even offer that? That is funny.

20 Apr 2016 16:33:15
Montreal Canadiens do-over
Mtl: Plekanec
Carolina: 2nd rd pick 2016, 2nd rd pick 2017

Habs buyout Desharnais

Mtl: Eller, Matteau, 4th rd pick 2016
Clb: Rychel

Mtl: Markov
Edm: 2nd rd pick 2016, 4th rd pick 2017

Mtl: Emelin
Calgary: 3d rd pick

Habs sign Stamkos, Okposo, Weise, Russell
Draft Laine matthews or puljjujarvi if possible, if not let's say Dubois

2016-2017 roster
1st rd pick-Galchenyuk-Gallagher



21 Apr 2016 15:03:48
Started off bad, and just kept getting worse from there.

21 Apr 2016 18:10:06
A player would have to come back for plekanec because of salary.
Desharnais can get a low round pick.
I like Markov going to help to edm to help young kids but I think ference would have to come back to mtl because of salary.
Turn that 4th round pick into a 2nd with eller, either that or replace matteau with andrighetto.
Good value for emelin but I don't think Calgary needs him so try another team.

21 Apr 2016 22:31:01
not one of those montreal players are worth anything.

20 Apr 2016 07:04:00
From mtl: 1st Rd 2016 (assuming 9th overall), emelin
From edm: eberle

Assuming edm gets 2nd or 3rd overall they draft a bigger more physical winger to replace eberle. They get a d-man and a draft pick. All Montreal gives up essentially is emelin and Michael McLeod.

21 Apr 2016 14:32:31
Decent value but I'm not sure that this is what either team is really looking for.

21 Apr 2016 14:47:41
We don't want picks.

22 Apr 2016 02:45:29
Oilers don't want Emelin or picks, so no interest at all.

15 Apr 2016 10:53:03
A few trades I'd like to see.

Tor: Kappenen and 2nd also I'd be willing to add a piece like Komarov

Ana: N. Ritchie and C. Stoner

Leafs get size and Ana get skill and other good pieces.

Tor: Bozak, Percy and J. Bracco

MTL: Emilin, Mccaron and Fucal

Leafs get there perfect third line center and there Goalie prospect.

Trade JVR + for A young future top 2 2way d (Trouba) or highest pick available.

Sighn Vesey and the Russian D to entry leval contracts.
Make a bid on stammer.

15 Apr 2016 13:30:57
These Kapanen trades are getting old. The leafs shouldn't get rid of Komariv IMO. Every team needs a guy that hits everything that moves, gets under the opponents skin and can chip in some points once in a while. Great 3rd liner!

15 Apr 2016 19:45:56
Leafs 17 I agree and that gives him value but leafs have soshnikov.

15 Apr 2016 20:03:20
Habs pass, won't give up Mccaron to get Bozak .

15 Apr 2016 21:32:13
They need more of it vbbbb's. They don't even have a guy that will drop the gloves. I don't see Clune being around next year and Babcock doesn't concern himself with that stuff. That need all the grit they can get.

16 Apr 2016 03:39:16
I don't like your trades.

11 Apr 2016 00:50:51
Edmonton Trades

Montreal Trades
2nd Round Pick 2016


11 Apr 2016 02:44:58
Montreal says no. Without subban their d-core really isn't much. And the emergence of galchenyuk has provided the much needed offence they've been lookin for the past few games. They should make a run at boedker or ladd during freeagency but not much more. they're core doesn't need to be changed.

11 Apr 2016 03:41:55
Oils add Nurse.

11 Apr 2016 03:46:28
Suban is worth more than hall and a first pick

Yakupov is maybe worth a 3rd and I'm not sure a lot of people are going to take a chance.

11 Apr 2016 05:27:11
You are crazy Colt55 that you think Edmonton would add.
I would make the 2nd Rounder to a 4th Rounder but Mtl would be stuck with that huge Contract next year and like the Leafs Montreal should be looking at a small rebuild.
Trading one player for Forwards they need is a positive Trade plus Yak would play better with his buddy Galchenyuk.

11 Apr 2016 06:16:29
I'm sorry but suban is a top 10 #1 dman in league. Hall just is not enough.

11 Apr 2016 06:31:45
There pretty close, take contracts into consideration as well. Our first isn't just a throw in. Lol.

11 Apr 2016 08:35:00
Hall nearly broke into the top 20 in NHL scoring, better than any of the Montreal Canadiens players, including Max Paccioretty and this is on A team that finished second last, you do realize that? He wasn't even on a line with Mcdavid. He's definitley not as far as you proclaim from subban, in terms of value.

11 Apr 2016 12:23:55
While top d are harder to come by, subbans monster contract is bad news for the oilers with Mcdavid drais and nurse needing raises in the near future, oils say no because of that.

11 Apr 2016 16:07:35
It's funny as I made the same suggestion over the weekend on another blog but added Nurse as well.

I think that if that offer was on the table, Montreal would jump on it. as most would.

10 Apr 2016 20:27:36
D - Alex Edler $5.00
RW - Jannik Hansen $2.50
3rd Round Draft Pick 20162

D - Alexei Emelin $4.10
1st Round Draft Pick 2016 (9)

Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Gallagher
Eller - Plekanec - Hansen
Danault - Desharnais - Andrighetto
Byron - Mitchell - Flynn

De La Rose, Matteau

Edler - Subban
Markov - Petry
Beaulieu - Juulsen


Price - Condom

D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Burrows
Baertschi - Sutter - Virtanen
McCann - Horvat - Etem
Gaunce - Granlund - Dorsett


Hamhuis - Tanev
Hutton - Biega
Emelin - Tryamkin

Sbisa, Pedan

Miller - Markstrom.

11 Apr 2016 02:30:12
If that's the direction Montreal wants to go it doesn't seem too bad.

11 Apr 2016 03:42:47
1st rounder? Habs pass.

11 Apr 2016 18:40:00
The way I see it:
1. If Price is healthy next year, Montreal will be back in the playoffs.
2. Edler helps sure up quality on the back end and instantly becomes Montreal's best LHD.
3. Hansen provides scoring depth on the right side.
4. Montreal doesn't lose anything off their roster (besides a cap dump in Emelin), and they don't acquire that much more salary in terms of what they acquire.
5. Even though Emelin is considered a cap dump, Vancouver can use him in helping Andrey Pedan and Nikita Tryamkin along becoming big physical regular NHL defensmen.
6. Cory Schneider was traded for the number 9 pick and everyone said that he should have returned more. Based on that I feel that this is pretty close to the right value.

18 Apr 2016 07:36:31
Are you insane? A top pairing D man and a very good utility forward AND a draft pick for Emelin and a 1st?! You're clearly a Habs fan. Definite pass from Van. That's awful for Van. more like a nightmare.

10 Apr 2016 05:24:09
To Ottawa: Ben scrivens. Brendan Gallagher, Michael Mccaron

To Montreal: Andrew Hammond, mike Hoffman Patrick wiercioch and 2017 2nd round pick


10 Apr 2016 14:02:30
I think Ottawa is giving up a little too much.

10 Apr 2016 18:18:28
Wiercioch, 2nd.

10 Apr 2016 18:37:34
Scrivens is a UFA.

10 Apr 2016 19:16:59
Gallagher Is a better all around player then hoffman.

10 Apr 2016 19:56:00
Gallagher is MUCH better than Hoffman.

11 Apr 2016 01:09:33
If I'm Montreal I'd rather keep Gallagher (one of the only Habs who plays with a damn heart), Mccaron (Man is huge), and Weircoch is absolute trash.

11 Apr 2016 03:44:35
Habs won't be trading Gallagher.

11 Apr 2016 05:36:52
I wouldn't trade Gallagher alone for that.

17 Apr 2016 02:21:52
Hoffman is way better than Gallagher. Hoffman is a 30 goal scorer.

09 Apr 2016 21:02:07
Habs source says Subban has asked GM for a trade to the Maple Leafs. Habs asking for their 1st rounder. lottery pick will be 1 to 4 slot, Habs will add Desharnais and Flynn if it's top 3.

09 Apr 2016 22:32:24
But will Subban for under the cap with Stamkos, Tavares and Mcdavid? Oh wait didn't see you added Desharnais, all good then.

09 Apr 2016 22:39:18
Wait. I thought a top-3 pick was worth MORE than a 4th pick?!

09 Apr 2016 23:44:53
Go butter your bagel somewhere else Boris because we ain't buying this garbage.

10 Apr 2016 00:07:11
Give it up.

10 Apr 2016 04:47:15
Hopefully Toronto isn't that stupid.

10 Apr 2016 16:58:22
Great insight Bosirs. thanks for that.

09 Apr 2016 14:21:18
Haven't got a lot of these right and I probably didn't get this one right, but here I go. P. K Subban and Carey Price are best friends, so I can't see Montreal trading Subban without royally pissing Price off. But they could maybe do this
To EDM- RNH, Hall, Nurse, Talbot, 2016 first overall,
To MTL- Subban, Price, Gallagher, McCann.

09 Apr 2016 14:35:19
Should have said
From EDM
From MTL
See got it wrong already.

09 Apr 2016 16:14:03
Lol even worst then some leaf trade.

09 Apr 2016 17:29:08
This trade would be brutal for MTL. Give up a top 3 defenceman in the NHL a the best goalkeeper...

09 Apr 2016 19:55:07
A top 3 dman are you crazy I have him barely breaking top ten pk is not a top 3
1 doughty
2 Keith
3 weber
No pk there.

09 Apr 2016 20:03:00
In what what world is Subban a top 3 defenceman?

09 Apr 2016 22:46:20
trade doesn't make any sense but. What about the value?

Price = Rnh + 1st overall 2016
Subban = Hall + a little something
Gallagher = Nurse
*Mccarron? = Talbot

But then again, the ONLY way Price is getting traded is if Mcdavid goes the other way.

10 Apr 2016 06:55:38
Karlsson, Kieth, Doughty, Hedman, OEL, Weber. Top 6 D in the league. No Subban there. I still think like 10 more are better than him but he is NOT top 3 at all. Biased homer if you think so.

10 Apr 2016 14:48:01
You too are biased hahaha... PK is max 5th... Karlsson can't defend, Subban is above him. In my opinion there is only Doughty and maybe Keith

10 Apr 2016 18:26:09
And your not biased? Why wouldn't OEL be above him?

11 Apr 2016 02:40:07
@Neki I see it more like this

Talbot + 1st overall = Price (I don't know pretty hard to judge Matthews value)
Hall = Subban
RNH > Gallagher (possibly equal)
Nurse > McCarron.

11 Apr 2016 03:45:51
Oils add.

With rumors of PK being traded, just wanted to try some possible trades :

Mtl : Subban + 3rd

1 : Edmonton --> Draisaitl + reinhart
2 : Colorado --> Duchene + Bigras
3 : Toronto --> Dermott + 1st 2016 (top-3)

1. no from EDM, draisaitl is an important piece for them because of his size and ability; fits perfectly as the #2 behind mcdavid in the west. also, they can't take on Subban's contract, chiarelli already has hinted at looking formawrd to making sure they'll have no trouble fitting in mcdavid's new deal, so can't imagine they'd take on 9 mil.

2. subban simply isn't worth that

3. that goes against everything TOR has done the past 14 or so months.

Has subans value dropped that much or is it his contract.

Ya Toronto wouldn't do that, doesn't fit the rebuild at all and they need that pick more than they need Subban . Colorado would probably consider cause they are kind of weak on the back end. That also goes against what Edmonton is doing, they need cap space, they'd need a big salary player going the other way (RNH, or Hall)

The value isn't off a whole lot, just don't see Toronto doing that and same with Edmonton unless they move out salary.
