19 Aug 2017 15:14:45
For Jets fan
Winny: Galchenyuk

19 Aug 2017 15:52:57
No just stop.

15 Aug 2017 13:35:48
Minessota : Charlie Coyle

Montreal : Davidson - McCarron - 2nd round pic

15 Aug 2017 14:32:19
No way from Minny.

15 Aug 2017 15:28:51
That would be great as a Habs fan. but no way Minny does this.
As for the Habs D this year. how come when they show the projected top 6. Davidson is never on the list? Couldn't he possibly be the puck moving D that we need? Now i'm not saying he's going to be a star. but he still has some upside. and maybe being helped by Weber, this guy could be a steady 2 way D.? I dunno. what are your guys thoughts. Yup, you have seen him lots. any other Oilers fans wanna comment, McJesus? Maybe I don't knkw the whole story woth him.

15 Aug 2017 19:29:34
He could very we'll land a spot in the habs top 6. Most of these so called experts who are projecting the habs lineup are usually wrong anyway. Julien will decide who plays where and until he sets his lineup there are several spots up for grabs.

15 Aug 2017 20:25:46
Not even close to Coyle, try again, actually maybe just don't even bother.

14 Aug 2017 00:44:54
Mtl: Gallagher, 2d round
Edm: RNH

I added a 2 rd just in case u guys say no way but honestly since RNH is a bust a Gallagher a winger... Chiarelli would do it

14 Aug 2017 03:41:10
RNH is a busy? Wow! Pls think before you post! Thanks.

14 Aug 2017 15:15:18
If he's a bust, Then why do you want to trade for him?

14 Aug 2017 16:30:27
RNH is not a bust.
However i don't think the value between gallager and RNH is that far off, the second should make it close. I'm thinking the problem is that centers are in high demand right now and could probably get a better offer from somewhere else. But i don't think that the value is that far off.

14 Aug 2017 16:59:20
I agree with the Turkey.
People calling RNH a bust is jus rediculous. nope, he's not going to get ya 80 points. or 30+ goals. he's not in the same class as McDavid, Mathews ect. but he's not a Daigle, Lawton or Wickenhieser or Stefan either.
RNH is a solid 2 way center, does the little things right. Maybe on a different team, he could be a 70 point center as there number one. loke a 25 goal 45 assist kinda thing.

14 Aug 2017 17:43:34
For me RNH is kinda a bust just because he was first overall.

15 Aug 2017 00:12:18
If you think all first overalls should be elite superstars just because they were selected first overall, You're an idiot. Sorry.

Probably think just because you're drafted in the first round you should be amazing awesome, too. So dumb.

13 Aug 2017 03:56:38
This might just happen:

Mtl: Gallagher- Galchenyuk- Juulsen- 2dround

Edm: Draisaitl- RNH- Beck- 3dround

Honestly this would be also fair for Edm cus they definitely need Wingers since Chucky is a Lw and they get also Juulsen cus they don't have any top 4 RHD prospects

For mtl no need to tell why they should do this

13 Aug 2017 05:48:57
wow this really may just happen.

13 Aug 2017 06:51:21
this might just happen:

mtl: galchenyuk + drouin + patches + claude julien + twenty gatorades

edm: jussi jokinen + mark letestu + twenty dollars.

wowow so realistic omg.

13 Aug 2017 15:53:06
Omg, this is sooooo legit :D.

14 Aug 2017 03:42:04
Is keyhabs are habs fan? Hmmmm.

15 Aug 2017 01:45:18
This deffinetly won't happen.

16 Aug 2017 21:53:28
Not the worst trade proposal I've ever seen, but closdp.

09 Aug 2017 22:53:26
Mtl -Pacioretty + Gallagher +2nd round pick

Edmonton- Dreiseitl +3rd pick.

10 Aug 2017 00:51:15
not enough from MTL to entice.

10 Aug 2017 05:08:04
Edmonton would need a potential star in the deal as Montreal would be getting a potential star. Not sure who in their system fits that.

10 Aug 2017 14:51:56
Edmonton should just sign draisitl and keep him.

12 Aug 2017 20:37:47
Agree with Borje, Montreal honestly doesn't have anything Oilers could really use besides maybe price lol. Definitely nobody at the cost of Drat.

13 Aug 2017 00:04:02
Edmonton better hurry up and sign him or they could lose him for less then that.

07 Aug 2017 15:13:44
St Louis: Paul Stastny

Montreal: Paul Byron + 2nd round pick + Brandon Davidson

07 Aug 2017 23:24:54
Are u out of your mind.

08 Aug 2017 00:09:31
Not sure why Blue's do this.

They aren't going into rebuild, they may be retooling their roster. I don't think trading Statsny is going to be apart of that unless they find the number 1 C I think they want.

Also I don't think the pieces Montreal sends here helps the Blues. Davidson is counter-productive to their deep D-core. Byron doesn't help their Center depth and the 2nd isn't spectacular.

I just see the Blues not touching this, at least not right now. Maybe looking towards the trade deadline and seeing where their at then. Still not the pieces the Blues would want as well.

08 Aug 2017 00:13:00
Forgot he is a rental, so the value here may be close. The pieces and decision to trade him right now may not be what Blues want until trade deadline. If they are in playoffs, they may keep him or pull what they did in Shattenkirk.

08 Aug 2017 02:05:25
I don't see blues doing this trade. What's in for them. Stats by would require at minimum a first.

08 Aug 2017 15:45:23
No from mtl for 7 million we can get an actual number one centet.

08 Aug 2017 16:31:07
Id prefer Byron over Stastny. wow is he overrated.

08 Aug 2017 21:07:06
Stastny is actually a pretty good player. But like a lot of players now he is grossly overpaid.

08 Aug 2017 21:25:07
Name a few GoldenShowers.
What legit center can you get right now for $7M?

09 Aug 2017 01:17:49

Tyler seguin

There's two.

09 Aug 2017 05:09:00
The black alpaca those two guys are on the block? I wasn't aware of that lol.

09 Aug 2017 12:55:23
You can get pretty much anybody for a huge overpayment. The words on the block never came up.

09 Aug 2017 15:43:24
They are saying Seguin next contract is 9-10 miles easy.

09 Aug 2017 16:13:23
When someone says "no, for $7M we can get an actual number one center". That implies there's other options out there for that price tag besides the one discussed (Stastny, Who by the way I don't think is available right now, Possibly at deadline if Blues are out of a playoff spot)
Schiffle and Seguin are definitely not legit options.
Anyways, I'm still curious who the options are.

10 Aug 2017 11:09:40
Jason Spezza, Claude Giroux. And for half that salary we can get Bjug who is a second line center just like Stasny.

06 Aug 2017 20:22:10
3 team trade. Vegas is sitting just under 6 mill under the cap with 11 nhl d men signed this year. 8 of them being 28 or younger. Colorado has 3 nhl d men signed right now. Montreal needs a center. Complicated trade. Lol.

So, vegas sends 2 d men to Colorado under 28.

Montreal sends 3 draft picks to vegas.

Montreal gets Dushene. Montreal also sends goalie Mcnevien to Colorado.

So Colorado gets 2 nhl d men under 28 and goalie Mcnevien.

Vegas gains some cap space and 3 draft picks. And Mobtreal gets Dushene for ots center

07 Aug 2017 00:14:10
Which d men?

07 Aug 2017 05:15:28
What the hell is this?

07 Aug 2017 11:41:30
this is a train wreck,

07 Aug 2017 22:26:44
Doesn't even matter what D men it is, this is brutal.

08 Aug 2017 01:10:56
Random den lol.

08 Aug 2017 15:43:31
Vegas has signed this year 3 veteran d men. Plus these 8. Luca sbisa age 27, nate schmidt 26, brayden mcnabb 26, john merrili 25, vokin miller 24, shea theadore 22, griffan reinhart 23, and brad hunt 28. So that's 11 nhl d men signed this year. Colorado currently has 3 signed.

08 Aug 2017 15:44:35
So leafs make a trade for McDavid.

Toronto has a lot of forwards signed under contract. Edmonton only 1 head coach so Toronto trades a couple of forwards 1 defensman and a few draft picks for McDavid.

08 Aug 2017 22:06:26
Makes perfect sense.

09 Aug 2017 17:09:56
Col has 3 signed in Barrie, Johnson and barberio, plus zadorov is an rfa, whose new deal hopefully is announced within the next week. Plus with mironov signed, who's played the last 5 years in the K, that's 5. Plus they're going to give a number of young guys a look in bigras, lindholm, Siemens and meloche. Just because the avs don't have one way contracts doesn't mean they don't have defenseman. They may not be the best, but a hell of a lot better than trading duchene for a couple of journeyman. Also there are plenty of these quality defenseman that are still free agents, so why trade for them? When someone like franson, polak or jokipakka can be had for nothing?

06 Aug 2017 19:30:46
blue - Paul Statney

Habs - Carr and a 2ND PICK

The winning habits are saying blues would Like to unload Paul Statney salary cap, and thinks Bergie could Build a trade using Carr and another prospects player for Statney

07 Aug 2017 01:13:54
Greg, I wouldn't wanna do that. he's not a number one center, often injured and has one of the worst contracts out there.

07 Aug 2017 11:40:20
I was just pickup what, the winning Habit was saying, they think this great wanted to see what you'll thinks about this trade.

07 Aug 2017 11:55:52
HE'd be a rental tho. he's a 50 point guy - tops on the habs. I think Habs take this honestly.

07 Aug 2017 16:15:47
Is it his last year of this contract? Then maybe. where is Colt? He knows. lol.

07 Aug 2017 16:22:27
Yes it's his last year 7 mil cap hit.

07 Aug 2017 17:59:47
Sosa you're getting him for next to nothing. Habs take that and run all day.

07 Aug 2017 22:27:17
Habs take it and run.

08 Aug 2017 01:11:24
Easy win for habs.

08 Aug 2017 01:11:51
Ya, just didn't know what his term was. if only a year then for sure guys.

08 Aug 2017 04:19:21
Sosa can you explain why the bluse would do this. I can't think of one. Unless one of their young centers break out but I don't think they will.

08 Aug 2017 04:43:16
The logic behind the blues doing this would be to clear cap space. Not saying they would but that would be one reason, quite possibly the only reason.

08 Aug 2017 15:51:52
Just checked capfriendly blues have 2.5mil in cap and a full 23 man roster. If I'm correct that would equal about 6 to 7 mil at trade deadline. They have 9 mil coming off end of this year and another 10 the following. With a bunch of kids I don't think cap would be the issue. Maybe if they suffered a few key losses and we're not going to make playoffs I could see them asking for first and prospect maybe retain a bit.

08 Aug 2017 16:04:01
Yeah I know. I never said it was a good reason lol.

08 Aug 2017 16:38:28
Well. its Paul Stastny. A 7 million 2nd line center. Blues can keep him Rinkrat. I really don't care if we got him or not, and could care less why Blues would do this. if he only has 1 year left and the Blues have the cap numbers they have, then best to jus keep him and trade to him to highest bidder come deadline. he will be coveted for teams making a cup run.

04 Aug 2017 10:54:26
With Spooner looking for a long term contract with salary of 4m and up, the bruins might be looking to unload him before next season....

Bos Spooner 4 Pittsburg 2nd round pick 2018


Bos Spooner 4 Mtl 2nd rond pick(chicago's)

This would allow boston to make room for the cap next year, picks for trades or to draft... and room for younger players to gain experience...

Let me know if it makes sense value wise, not to sure of spooner's value, thanks

04 Aug 2017 13:39:04
I think they're going to want more than a late 2nd rounder for him but I don't know how desperate their cap situation is. Money problems make teams take less for better players obviously.

04 Aug 2017 16:49:52
Any trade with MTL and Bos doesn't make sense.

05 Aug 2017 04:42:12
they just love to hate each other I do not see it happening unless a third team is involve.

05 Aug 2017 18:57:22
they love to hate each other, I don not see this one happening unless another team is involved.

05 Aug 2017 21:03:51
"That's hysterical" -Don Sweeney.

06 Aug 2017 19:34:29
The winning habits are saying blues would Like to unload Paul Statney salary cap, and thinks Bergie could Build a trade using Carr and other prospect for Statney , a lot more likely and spooner.

30 Jul 2017 20:53:10
Habs : plekanec and juulsen

Detroit : nyquist

both side are winner

habs need a for forward who can score goals

detroit need depth in defense

31 Jul 2017 01:33:38
No only Habs win here, Plekanec is a one year cap dump making more then Nyquist which doesn't help Detroit's current cap situation.

Juulsen is a good d-man but he is no Sergachev and not likely to pass many of our other young d-men.

So ultimately Detroit says no, also Nyquist has a NTC that he would have to waive for Montreal which isn't a guarantee. Also he is one of Detroit's higher value assets and won't be sold cheaply.

His production has gone down recently but probably could be productive with a change in scenery. Essentially for Nyquist the cost is going to start at a 1st plus and the bidding war goes from there. Also Montreal has the cap space to take Nyquist at full contract without retention or cap dump Plekanec back.

So if Montreal wants him and he will waive, then it's 2018 1st +. The plus may be higher since its in the division.

So essentially Montreal wins, deal is unfair and unlikely to happen unless the following reasons above occur.

31 Jul 2017 01:58:32
Honestly would rather keep Juulsen. Someone is going to have to play D for the Habs in the next few seasons. he looks like only prospect capable of making the team in future.

31 Jul 2017 04:08:15
Montreal needs depth on centre. So who takes plekanec's spot?

31 Jul 2017 13:28:00
Montreal is doomed. No prospects, no one to play d or center. MB is an idiot.

05 Aug 2017 10:03:34
yeah I was, this site bounces around on me all the time, I love hockey, love the Habs, like pittsburgh penquins,

05 Aug 2017 10:52:52
Lol cap dump and Juuleson for Gus? I know he's been declining last couple years but still has young and more value then that.

05 Aug 2017 10:55:50
I'd take that from mtl. But would Detroit tho? Nyquist is good.

29 Jul 2017 15:33:19
mtl- gallagher-mcniven-plekanec33%retain- 1st pick in 2018


29 Jul 2017 16:38:25
Why on earth would mtl do this.

29 Jul 2017 18:52:08
Calgary declines. Although he is not a sure thing, Bennett at 20 oozes potential and is very gritty. The Flames stuck with Bennett.

29 Jul 2017 19:07:16
No thanks. if its a matter of losing Plekanec contract, itll be off the books next season. I think Gallagher ( if healthy) brings more to the table than Bennett does . And also., why would the Flames want Plekanec or McNevin, They don't need Plek and Flames have some pretty good goalie prospects coming up.

02 Aug 2017 03:55:50
I'm not taking it personal, I just saying that I on this sit to meet hockey people, and talk, joke and have fun and laugh that is it, like around the dinner table at christmas, and at this point that is all.

02 Aug 2017 09:08:42
Greg, your probably replying to my post from down below.
I get it. I respect your passion for the game and team. On the post below, we deffinetly don't see things the same, and that's all good. but you sound like a Habs fan, so ya can't be all that bad. Lol.

05 Aug 2017 10:53:15
Wouldn't do this if I'm Calgary.

11 Aug 2017 02:03:41
Beleiveable. I think Calgary is on the fence about Bennetts ceiling;it would be smart to atleast explore interest. I like Gallager for Bennett tho. Porier is not on as promising as years before. Bennett would be good for Mtl might even become their # 1center so there has to be more value coming to Cgy with Gallager.

Gallagher, Hudon, 2nd Rd

Bennett, 5th round pick.

29 Jul 2017 03:12:23
Huge trade

NYI: Tavares, Leddy, Halak, 3dround

MTL: Galchenyuk, McNiven, Scherbak, Juulsen, 1stround, 2dround

Guys I know I'm out of my mind but any thoughts

29 Jul 2017 04:46:23
Well for one, Tavares would have to be signed. we don't need Halak at all.
Islanders would want more roster ready peices to go with Galchenyuk. as Chucky is the only established player going the other way, none of the other peices are guaranteed to make the NHL. I don't really see any deal to be made for Tavares. it would be great, but Galchenyuk is probably only tradeable piece Habs have atm, and they don't have enough peices to add to him to pry Tavares outta Brooklyn.

29 Jul 2017 05:33:15
Sosa pretty much says it all. Anyone that trades a 26 year old franchise centre, better have a lot more guarantees coming back. No one wants to be the next mike O'Connell. If you are asking who that is, exactly my point. He's the GM that traded joe Thornton for Marco sturm, Wayne primeau and brad stuart. The game is not forgiving to guys that make those deals. If the isles knew he wasn't coming back, then fine. But if there's a chance he stays, it's too soon to take a deal like this.

29 Jul 2017 15:32:47
I'm ok with this trade, I see two problems, one the Habs can not give up another young d-man, second salary CAP issues, if the trade happens, losing two 30-40 scorer, in the next few year, one by trade this year, and Habs will not be able to sign Max, and lost him in 2018/ 19 season with Price 10.5 mil, Weber 7.8 mil and Tavares between 10-12 mil, unless the cap goes way up, so heres my thought, Pacioretty, Pelkenic, Shaw, Davidson,2018 1st rounder,2018 2nd rounder,2019 3rd rounder, for Tavares, Leddy, halak, , I look at this as coldly as a habs fan can, this would give the habs a very good center line, Tavares c1. live with Galchenyuk mistake as c2., Danault c3,Mitchell or Mccarron c4.

29 Jul 2017 15:42:41
No greg. No.

29 Jul 2017 15:55:33
I'm ok with this trade ; see two problems with this trade, one is cap space taking 14.5 mil of islander salary cap hit, second is the lost of two 30 plus goal scorers in the next couple of year, one by traded this year, Galcheyuk and is salary is already accounted for til the 2020, and Pacioretty, because with this trade you will not have the cap space to sign him 2019, so here my trade, Pacoiretty, Pelkenic, Shaw or Gallagher, but would want to keep Gallagher, Carr and Davidson,1st rounder 2018,2nd rounder 2018, 3rd rounder 2019, for Tavares, Halak, Leddy . As a habs fan I tried to look at by the numbers.

29 Jul 2017 19:13:59
I get that you looked at the numbers., however not sure it all works out that way. but seriously I can't see it. and why in Earth would we want Halak? Montoya is a decent enough backup. Lindgren can be number 3. no need for Halak.
Yes Tavares and Leddy would be great for the Habs, but as much as I like to dream, reality kicks in and I jus don't see it happening. and as for trading Pacciorety., with his contract, we need to keep him, come deadline time, with his pending free agency. well could be a good way to stock the bare prospect cupboard when the time comes. 35 goal scorers don't come much cheaper.

29 Jul 2017 23:39:14
So you want Tavares and Leddy who are both 26 for Patches who is 28 Pelkaec who is 32 and a bunch of crap. Wow. That is something. How about Tevares for Galchenyuk and 2 first round picks.

30 Jul 2017 06:18:35
I'm ok with this trade, I see two problems, one the Habs can not give up another young d-man, second salary CAP issues, if the trade happens, losing two 30-40 goal scorer in the next few year, one by trade this year, and Habs will not be able to sign Max, and lost him in 2019 season with Price 10.5 mil, Weber 7.8 mil and Tavares between 10-12 mil, unless the cap goes way up, while Galchenyuk salary is already accounted for til 2021, so heres my thought, Pacioretty, Pelkenic, Shaw or Gallagher, but i really want to hang on to Gally if posible, Davidson, 2018 1st rounder,2018 2nd rounder,2019 3rd rounder, for Tavares, Leddy, halak, , I look at this as non homer as a habs fan can, this would give the habs a very good center line, Tavares c1. live with Galchenyuk mistake as c2., Danault c3,Mitchell or Mccarron c4.

30 Jul 2017 17:42:30
I'm taking Halak for Pelk, saving 1.5 mil, which is the difference between Pac and Tavares, sending halak to ahl til Habs trade him (MISTAKE FOR MISTAKE ) and his contact end at the end of the year, next The only forward (wing) more producive then Pac is OV especially 5 on 5 plus he would be going closer to home, so I'm trading my best forward for yours, I've add either Shaw or Gallagher, a young dman whom at one time was consider the future for Edmonton, plus a 1st and 2nd round pick next year and a 3 round pick the following year, building the trade this way would leave the habs about 4-5 mil to settle the Tavares, and have a pretty good Ideal what the team should look like for the next 3-4 years.

30 Jul 2017 19:42:49
Well Greg. anytrade for Tavares would have to involve both Galchenyuk and Sergachev. oh crap, we don't have him anymore. so. Isles say no. if they trade Tavares, there will be many teams that can offer a way more attractive offer than Habs can.

30 Jul 2017 19:43:29
Greg, oilers had 4 1st overall picks, plus Eberle, nurse, pajarvi etc as first rounders in the last 10 years. Brandon Davidson was NEVER 'the future of the oilers' lol that's a new one.

30 Jul 2017 23:18:50
Sorry forgot a word, the future on d, before Nurse was ready, next according to NHL tonight and onther such show, Pac is a top 2-3 winger in the NHL just behind OV, so I'm not starting with crap, I throw in a Shaw or Gallagher, Davidson as a young D 1ST AND 2ND rounder,2019 draft, 3rd in 2020, I could up the draft pick to a first rounder if they leave GALLAGHER ONLY, the reason I'M USING Pac instead of CHUCKY IS IT GIVES ME A YEAR.

31 Jul 2017 02:01:33
Umm i'd say Benn, Kane would have as well as a few others are ahead of Patches. Laine will surpass him this year as well. don't get me wrong, i'm a huge Pacioretty fan. and aI also think there are quite a few ahead of Ovi as top winger in the game.

31 Jul 2017 12:00:29
Greg is a homer, end of story,

01 Aug 2017 04:35:06
I am a homer, I love Benn, and like Kane, but Pac's number are just as good, But here's my problem must of you, always put Habs Players down, when Shaw was with the Hawks, he was the greatest thing sinces slice bread, now his crap, I am be a homer, but I do think must of you just pou pow on Habs and there player, W. H. Y? They haven't won a coup 23 years, and they still have 11 more coup then the next closest team,

01 Aug 2017 08:03:14
Lol. Too funny.

01 Aug 2017 15:15:42
Greg.? Are you Montreal finest? Did u take some English classes. anyway, as a Habs fan myself, i'm a homer as well. But to put Patches on same level as Benn and Kane, I feel is a little crazy. as for someone like say Shaw. The Hawks used him as a role player, and he flourished in that role. our team, and us fans, seem to overvalue him and ecpect more of him than what he really is. i'm not saying you, but people expect this guy to be a top 6, 20 goal man year in and year out. We overvalue our players, yes Patches is good, but not Kane good. or Benn ect. the only player we can overvalue is Price. cause well, he's Priceless to our team. only thing that pisses me off about Price, is he's so good that we lost out on chances for McDavid, Eichel, Mathews Laine. ect. cause that's who the Canadiens are without him. a lottery team.

ok I unstand about Shaw, but I wonder if you understand my point, According Nhl tonight (steve Week, and others) in the pass 5 years only one winger has more 5 on 5 goal than Pac and he is OV now I personally haven"t sat there and did the math, BUT I'm using a statement of a paid Pro, that made this comment on tv, so based on that comment Pac (lol) is better tha Kane and Benn, there are all elite player, personally Benn is the best off them, then it OV, KANE, PAC at this time, so I don't upset anyone . When I started this , to get Tavares, Habs needed to start with and elite player next, Pac and Tavares contacts end in the same year I'm sure the Habs will not be able to sign both of them in the same year, so if a kept Galchenyuk, I'LL have one extra year, either the cap goes up, or the new cba will allow team to have one franchise player who's salary dose not count on the cap, or to trade him (Chucky), note sosahabs24 you have spelling and grammar mistake to right back at you!

01 Aug 2017 18:00:27
Ya my typing skills are lovely there English professor Greg.
Anyway, this is getting kinda stupid and drawn out. I don't see us getting Tavares. yes Patches is good.
If we get Tavares, then great.

01 Aug 2017 18:03:14
Greg. your probably new here, had nothing to do with your English grammer ect. jus our one time "Great Leader" the legend known as MontrealFinest. you guys have some similarities.

02 Aug 2017 00:00:27
I'm on and off this for years when I in country, I do not pretend to be a professor, but I do not throw stone at other first, this forum is about meeting other, who loves hockey, just like yourself, this sit is about ( What if's, could bes, and wishfull thinking) , not one's wrong or right, because in the end, all it is about people exchanging ideal, now I come from a hockey family, on both side some play and played in the NHL, many were scouts, one is still a coach, and one is just starting his career in the NHL, me, I had a cup of coffee, it was not in the cards but hockey was a big part of my life from 3 years old til 46 years, the last injury stopping from playing, so this is it now,

02 Aug 2017 01:39:50
K buds. Your taking it a lil too personally.

02 Aug 2017 02:30:42
Who did you play for greg?

26 Jul 2017 04:54:50
With Bergevin stacking up on lhd and having a plethora of wingers, and a 8 million in cap space, I feel he has something up his sleeve.

Montreal: Brandon Davidson, Charles Hudon, 2nd round pick

Detroit: Darren Helm, Andreas Athanasiou


Montreal: David Schlemko, Charles Hudon, 1st round pick

Edmonton: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

26 Jul 2017 05:39:16
Please tell me this is a troll post.

That first trade is awful for Detroit. It's not going to cost Andreas Athanasiou to dump Helm's contract. Also trading both of them is counter productive because Athanasiou makes up for the loss in Helm. Not to mention the pieces you offered might/ might not get Helm alone. Detroit may find a way to move Helm's contract but Detroit is not trading Andreas Athanasiou any time soon because that would go against the much needed rebuild plan.

Second Trade: if that's all it cost to get RNH, numerous teams can outbid that in a heartbeat and probably would. Hudon has value but you hold him way too high. Also that first is likely a mid-late first so not much help, plus you don't help Edmonton's significant needs whatsoever.

Both trades highly favour Habs and won't happen.

26 Jul 2017 15:19:31
The habs have very little to trade that has value. Zero grade a prospects and no one wants their cap dumps for assets or players.

26 Jul 2017 15:42:30
Wow. Both Detroit and Edmonton laugh at you and hang up.

26 Jul 2017 17:19:04
Terrible for Wings and Oilers to no surprise.

28 Jul 2017 03:43:06
every body thinks RNH is all that and a ball of wax, they've been trying to trade him for three years, even New jerry did not want him they had to traded Taylor Hall, he is a number three centermen making 6 mil/ yrs, in 7 years never had more than 56 point, never had more than 24 goal, and we beat up on galchenyuk, him is worth a Pelk, or a danault no more, and that is why his still in edmonton.

25 Jul 2017 03:08:25
Montreal trades scherbak 2016 first and 2 2017 second round picks

Pittsburgh trades Phil Kessel

Pittsburgh and Toronto made a similar trade not too long ago

25 Jul 2017 12:26:19
But. the 2017 draft already happened.

25 Jul 2017 13:05:40
Montreal already traded away their 2016 first. Ya know, that Sergachev guy?

25 Jul 2017 14:00:03
This might be the least thought through proposal ever lol trading picks from drafts that already happened.

25 Jul 2017 21:14:19
All this mid summer heat must be melting fans brains having some of these silly proposals.

26 Jul 2017 17:06:28
Yes Penguins just won 2 cups with Phil and could be cup favourites again, makes so much sense to trade Phil for futures, right? No from Pens obviously.

27 Jul 2017 01:48:45
Hotguybabes, they aren't futures if they're draft picks you need to go back in time to make, are they?!

29 Jul 2017 03:20:58
I'm habs fan, but noway is this one happen, and frankly I do not wanted it to, It dosen't fix the c1 or dman left 1, now that Markov is no longer a habs, but here one want if Gino convence Markov to sign one year with Penquins, he'd look good with kris letang.

22 Jul 2017 19:58:41
WPG: Little
MTL: Galchenyuk

22 Jul 2017 20:36:31
👏👏 great post. Completely unbiased.

22 Jul 2017 20:52:06
Can u stop.

22 Jul 2017 21:22:40
How boUT
Wpg- laine

Bos- backes


22 Jul 2017 22:56:03
Lol. Jets add. Of course.

23 Jul 2017 14:35:14
Laine for Byron and a 1st?

23 Jul 2017 14:36:09
Little is productive but Gally is Worth more. I doubt the Habs really want to move him unless it's for quite a bit more.

23 Jul 2017 21:03:37
Oh wow borje you sure nailed that one.

26 Jul 2017 17:00:01
Just trying to not be a complete jerk to the guy who put out a post. You may want to try that Mcjesus.

21 Jul 2017 16:05:10
Winnipeg is apperently being very aggressive on the trade market. They are very intersted in Galchenyuk and have reportedly offered up Tyler Myers to Montreal.

Decent trade. But Montreal needs scoring don't they? They need forwards more than D right now, no?

21 Jul 2017 16:29:27
You're right this would be brutal for Mtl.

21 Jul 2017 16:43:16
Realistically they need both. They lost a lot of defensive depth but didn't get much offensive depth to make up for that loss either. So in terms of which do they add more, I honestly have say forwards is the more pressing need because the Habs need to score more because they know Price can carry the team if he gets some breathing room on the scoresheet.

So definitely offense first, Defense 2nd.

That's just my take from a non-Habs fan. Others may have different suggest.

21 Jul 2017 16:46:57
Also why do Jets need Galchenyuk? I thought they have a lot of young up and coming players up front and could use a LHDMAN primarily?

Are the Jets lacking Center depth because I don't see them needing young wingers at least.

21 Jul 2017 18:29:03
Don't think you will see the habs make any more trades for defense until Markov is sorted out. If he doesn't come back they have a huge hole on the left D. I hope they get Markov back at a decent $ and sign something to help up front. Jagar would be interesting to see. He's old, but just try to ice a decent team this year because they have screwed up most everything else.

22 Jul 2017 05:39:03
no thank you, montreal needs a c1/ 2 and I'M sure that neither Byran Little or Mark Scheifele are available.

22 Jul 2017 13:43:32
I'd like Connor And Myers for Chuck and a third.

23 Jul 2017 04:30:49
Right now Connor is the son Chev never had. No hope in hell that Chev would trade Connor or Myers.

17 Jul 2017 23:26:14
Colorado trades: Matt Duchene
Montreal trades: Michael McCarron,Michael McNiven, 2018 first round draft pick, 2018 second round draft pick, Thomas plekanec (equal out the cap)

18 Jul 2017 00:15:25
More pieces doesn't change the fact that there isn't 1 good young D in the package when avs want 2 in a deal for duchene. I honestly believe habs chances of getting duchene or any other player as good as him disappeared when they traded sergachev. He was their most valuable piece and a position almost every team trading good forwards wants back.

18 Jul 2017 00:19:38
Lol this is really funny! That's a big no from abs even coming from habs fan.

18 Jul 2017 00:25:35
If sakic isn't willing to take Murray +++ for Duchene, why would he take that?

18 Jul 2017 01:38:01
Sorry Ryder. There is nothing there that Sakic wants. I think it may have been Yup who said in an earlier post, now that Sergachev is gone, there is no trade tk be had for Duchene from a Habs standpoint.

18 Jul 2017 02:09:11
Lol. Clueless. So bad.

18 Jul 2017 09:11:49
WHY DUCHENE? HE has all of Galchenyuk failts, and not as good offensively you are not fixing the c1 problem, there are other centerman out there besides Duchene.

18 Jul 2017 18:29:48
Greg, Duchene doesn't have galchenyuk offense capabilities? Galchenyuks bestvyear is 56 pts in 82 games. Duchene did 55 in 81 as an 18 year old rookie. Since then he's had 67 pts in 80, 43 in 47 in short seasons and 70 in 71 games. Duchene is far better at both ends of the rink which is why he makes power house team Canada Olympics and galchenyuk isn't even considered in the same league as the guys making USA.

18 Jul 2017 18:54:00
Topshelf they offered Duchene straight up for Carlo and the Bruins declined.

20 Jul 2017 03:24:03
if duchene was all that and a ball of wax, why? has colorado been trying two trade him for two year, and he is still on the market unbiased jim, and any team looking at him are going to use him as a winger, so he is not better then galchenyuk, and he will cost the habs more, chucky will score 30 + GOAL a year, no no no to duchene ps pacioretty never played for the usa u18/ u20 iihf either.

17 Jul 2017 01:57:13
mtl : danault and 2nd

columbus : wennberg

17 Jul 2017 04:24:45
Brutal for CLB.

17 Jul 2017 15:20:43
No mater what Columbus are not trading their cheap Wennberg that has proven to be a 1st offensive centerman.

17 Jul 2017 21:36:37
Wennberg is CBJs 1/ 2C. This would make them exponentially weaker at C than they already are. Horrible trade for them, it's completely one-sided for MTL.

16 Jul 2017 16:01:55
From Mtl: Juulsen + Gallagher + 2d round

From Edm: RNH + 5th round

Is that fair enough?

16 Jul 2017 17:27:06
I personally wouldn't go after RNH if I'm the Habs.

16 Jul 2017 18:04:26
Too much for RNH.

16 Jul 2017 18:07:25
Well Habs needs a first line Center and if RNH gets his opportunity he can fill that hole and Edm needs a rw + a eventual top 4 RHD that will eventually replace Sekera because he's getting older and I think Juulsen is just what Edm needs.

16 Jul 2017 19:01:24
Remove juulsen.

16 Jul 2017 19:32:21
I think if it was Gallagher and a 3rd for RNH would be pretty fair.
Habs need Juulsen just as much if not more than Edmonton will.

16 Jul 2017 21:42:59
Juulsen is NOT what Edm "needs", especially in a trade for Nuge. Lol.

17 Jul 2017 11:21:45
RNH had an opportunity centering Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle. Unfortunately, he was either too young or not a top line center. IMO he is a solid 2nd line center with decent possession numbers but will not drive the play against the top lines of other teams. Better off going after Duchene.

17 Jul 2017 14:21:09
Duchene would cost them more and now that they have traded Sergachev there is no deal to be made with Colorado. They will find a different trade partner for Duchene.

17 Jul 2017 21:24:17
Way too much for Nuge. Look at the return for Eberle and/ or Hall. Go from there.

17 Jul 2017 21:40:52
I don't foresee any further tweaks to the Oilers lineup in the near future. They took grand steps last season, made some minor lineup changes earlier this off-season, and can still afford RNH as a 2/ 3C under the current cap so why mess with what was working last season? They're entering playoff mode and moving a two-way C of RNH's calibre would be foolhardy. Maybe next off-season they explore options but RNH will be an Oiler this season barring a very solid proposal (which this one is not) .

18 Jul 2017 09:39:06
way to much for RNH he is playing c3 . for me it would be Pel and may be a late second rounder or Bryon for RNH, but i'ld be feel way more comfortable, a PelK for RNH straight up . here way, they will need the money for Daisaitl, Pelk contact end this year, also maybe some trade oppertunities come trade deadline for team to add a defensive centerman.

16 Jul 2017 07:22:16
I know this is a long shot but...

Vancouver trades: Henrik Sedin(25% retained), Ben Hutton.

Mtl trades: Plekanec, 2018 1st, Jacob de la rose.

Don't really know what Sedin's value should be at since Vancouver clearly can't contend for Stanley cup also MTL will get a good C and will give a chance for Horvat to play 1C.



16 Jul 2017 08:36:33
So a 2C and top pairing D for a cap dump, late 1st and DLR?

16 Jul 2017 09:25:31
ben hutton is a top pairing D? they are only using him in a top pairing role, lol Toronto used Hunwick in a top pairing role the whole of the 15/ 16 season, that doesn't make him a top pairing dman.

Not enough from montreal anyways.

16 Jul 2017 15:37:25
Calling Ben Hutton a top pair d is a joke. That's like saying habs will give you back philip Danault and call him a '#1 centre'.

16 Jul 2017 19:13:31
Sedin is 36 and a ufa after a year.

17 Jul 2017 05:46:12
Hutton doesn't play top pairing, other than in his rookie season when he played a out 8 games on 1St pair due to several injuries.
Hutton is a 3rd pairing at best.

18 Jul 2017 09:45:41
love the trade, here is the problem. you will need to take both sedins, vancouver will have eat one of the twins salary for this to happen.
