fouduch


You are missing gonchar

Cd1


Very equal trade all around, edmonton gets a nice two-way center to backup the second line while montreal gets another productive winger to go on their second line, while letting galchenyuk finally take his throne as the second line center

Pens1994


Edm says yes

mtl shouldn't do this because plekanec plays against the top line and kills penatlies

qwerty93


Sorry I don't follow Montreal, but isn't Beaulieu a defenseman? If you are going to trade Plekanec you might as well get a 1st/2nd line center.

And I personaly, wouldn't touch the Montreal's roster.

They are playing just fine.

NHLFunFacts


Someone adds.

thejazz97


Plecanec is in form, and montreal is one of the leagues top teams ATM. Why trade for a struggling player? Because he is said to have tons of potential? That's no reason to screw up something that works.

MTL and BOS are both in need of top-6 wingers. BUF has Stewart and Stafford.

MTL: Stewart

BUF: Reway, 2nd, 5th



BOS: Stafford

BUF: Lindblad, 2nd

MasterMatt25


Boston doesn't have the cap space to make this trade.

as95


If anything, I would see stafford to MTL & Stewart to BOS, Stewart seems like he'd mesh better with Boston's style of play

StaalingForTime


Neither Reway nor Lindblad fit the bill of an NHL ready player that Tim Murray has indicated would be needed to pry either Stafford or Stewart away from Buffalo. Reway is not in MTL top 20 prospect list and Lindblad at 24 yo has only played 2 NHL games and will probably not progress much beyond his current level. So the trade is really a 2nd and 5th for Stewart and a 2nd for Stafford. Easy pass for Tim Murray. BTW if Murray really wanted Lindblad for next season he could offer him $1,110,249 (nearly a $300,000 raise) and not have to provide any compensation to Boston or a $1,682,194 offer would only cost a 3rd.

stanleycup2019


I fail to understand why people consider stafford and stewart top 6 wingers. I'd rather have pacioretty, gally, galchenyuk, and parenteau in my top 6 over Stewart any day. And then I don't see the value in trading picks and a prospect for him.

Soobydoo


Change Reway to Del la Rose

No point of bringing Gilbert back.
IMO Montreal is giving up to much.
I wouldn't touch anything because they are playing great.

NHLFunFacts


Yakupov for 3rd and gilbert. its only fair because if he were never a 1st overall, he would be worth a 5th and he is a bust just like legwand (p.s he went first overall)

MTL: Bryan Allen

ANA: Rene Bourque

MasterMatt25


I know this happened but why did Anahiem do this trade. They still have a ton of cap space for more moves. Evander Kane?

quinnjj


Bergevin is a genious. He needed dmen for depth and he got them for nothing! Three great trades Briere, Moen and now Bourque.

stanleycup2019


Even with getzlaf and perry bourque won't be able to do anything. Good move by bergevin to free up some cap for next year and get a big stay at home D

Cd1


I thought guys who were put on waivers are never traded? I guess the Habs/Ducks missed that memo.

well I mean its not like its good players he's getting. trading his scraps for other teams' scraps lol

Shankar


21 Nov 2014 20:11:37
Anaheim is happy to move Bryan Allen. He's a decent 6-7 defensemen who lacks mobility. He couldn't keep up with Anaheim's play I wonder how he'll do in Montreal.

Titties


@Shanker he filled a couple of holes in the line up for nothing, and he got P. A. Parenteau and a 5th for Briere! I thought he would have give a 5th for someone to take Briere! That alone puts him in the running for manager of the year.

Montreal trades C Lars Eller and D Nathan Beaulieu for Edmonton's RW Nail Yakupov and D Jeff Petry

stanleycup2019


Yakupov>Eller
Petry>Beaulieu

Edmonton declines fast

JF12


Edmonton easily says no, they'll be asking a lot more than that . Potential superstar or a potential 1st overall bust, either way it's in Edmonton's best interest to wait and see.

steamer


If EDM said yes, that would be the worst trade of the year

StaalingForTime


1st place Habs say no thanks, they don't want the Yak for anything, and besides Eller has more goals than Yak & more size, checking ability and can actually contribute defensively. Eller is a more complete player than Yak will ever be.
if Yak is so valuable, why do OIls fans keep trying to trade him.

Boris Bagel


Habs don't want the Yak,

Boris Bagel


Actually it's mostly habs fans that put up ridiculous trade proposal's of Yakupov to Montreal.

18 Nov 2014 18:42:20
To MTL: Chris Stewart (Retain 50%)

To BUF: Jacob Del La Rose, 2015 2nd rd.

MTL needs another top 6-9 forward with grit for the playoffs. Especially if they face BOS. Stewart will help them against Lucic.

Del La Rose plays a similar, heart and sole, two-way, game to Girgensons but lacks the offence right now. I think the DLR would look great on Girg's wing and I think Girgs will really help him develop his offence.

I'm not sure how much value MTL puts on him so BUF could add or MTL's 2nd could be dropped to a later pick if necessary. BUF is asking for a prospect and pick for Stewart.

sabres14


My mouth waters at the idea of having the line of:

Fasching, Girgensons, Del la Rose

In a couple years. I think that could be one of the best shut down lines in hockey.

sabres14


I would make that trade and I think Tim Murray would make that trade.

stanleycup2019


Habs might not be too keen to trade for a winger with 2 pts in 20 games, they might as well call up Bourque who did fine in recent playoffs (and he has 4 pts in 4 AHL games so far since demotion).

Habs could also look at better forwards (UFAs/rentals) that could be available, such as Buff's Stafford, or Foligno with CLB

Boris Bagel

Dnt think that would go straight up a team would probably hve to add

mcdavidsweepstakes


Pretty fair deal and I think that Edmonton would be willing to do it because they get a two way centre who can get you 20 goals and 40 points and who kills penalties. Habs 2nd line would be too much for opponents to handle.

habsfan22


Your not far off, I mean, the oilers need centres and the Canadiens could use another winger. Maybe throw in a pick to even it out

Reminator


Don't see 1st place Habs trading their top centre (having a career-year start) for a forward with one goal so far. maybe this swap in the off-season if Habs feel Gally is set to play centre

Boris Bagel


Actually that's Montreal's biggest problem they don't have a #1 centre. Plekanec is a good 2 way player but a #1 centre I don't think so.

Montreal trades C Lars Eller & D Nathan Beaulieu for Edmonton's RW Nail Yakupov & D Jeff Petry.
Yakupov's will be reunited with his junior teammate Alex Galchenyuk.

habsonthemove


Montreal needs to add.
Gallagher , Beaulieu and a 1st
for
Yakupov
This probably would be closer to what Edmonton is looking for in return. They don't need a 3rd/4th line centre.

17 Nov 2014 16:52:00
MON adds. A lot.

Draisaitl_94


17 Nov 2014 18:02:58
While I as you can see, said, MON adds, Gallagher, Beaulieu and a 1st is clearly too much for Yak.

Draisaitl_94


Montreal wouldn't give up gallagher for yakupov

Cd1


@steamer "this is probably closer to what edmonton wnts in return. They don't need a 3rd 4th line center." They don't need a third 4th line center, but I don't see the 3rd line center not playing second line on edmonton (hint hint edmonton needs a second line center). 2nd, yak is a 3rd liner himself and a draft bust who won't be a tyler seguin because he will always suck. If he was never a first overall, he would be worth a 5th and would probably not even play in the in the nhl let alone the ahl. 3rd, yak (a bust, a loser, so on) for a future, another future, and another future is the real picture here because yak will never be what oilers fans dream he will ever be, because yak is worth a 5th ( maybe a tad over a fifth if he can help the oils with something) all I have to say about this trade (just kidding because time is money but yak isn't worth gallaghers toe

Caryprice31


I don't think that's to much for a potential superstar who would make galchenyuk even better. Gallagher will always be on the 2nd or 3rd line , Beaulieu looks alright but he's below average among defencemen in the nhl and a late 1st , whoever picks up Yakupov will overpay.

steamer


Habs say no thanks, they wouldn't give up one of those players and 1st for Yak. Habs GM likes character players, not head cases. please keep your Yak out of MTL

Boris Bagel


Yakupov may have some issues but he's young and will mature. I seem to remember Pk having issues too, temper tantrums , melt down in the playoffs screaming at his teammates playing against ottawa, he's probably fought more teammates than he has players on other teams, his bad attitude led to being benched at the Olympics, but it looks like he's turned it around so why can't Yakupov?

MTL trades Nathan Beaulieu, & Rene Bourque to BUF for Drew Stafford (retain 50%) & Brian Flynn. MTL replaces Moen (a PK forward) with Flynn, gets a power RW & dumps salary. BUF gets another Defensive prospect & a placeholder to replace Stafford.

Montreal can keep their garbage in their own province.

Sabres need to add a 1st

Sabres have 3 first rounders this year, might as well chuck all of them in there

16 Nov 2014 15:29:27
Montreal:Tomas Plekanec

Buffalo: Chris Stewart

Habs make space for Galchenyuk at centre and get a right winger for a cheap price. This would only happen because Stewart hasn't been good for the Sabres and he might flourish with better linemates in Montreal.

habsfan22


16 Nov 2014 19:05:32
yes, because BUF wants to get older.

Shankar


IMO BUF needs to add a pick or a prospect. But I am not sure if Murray would make a trade for a 32 yo left handed center.

stanleycup2019


Who needs to add to finish that trade? IMO if MTL added Bourque's salary, it would be a fair trade.

stanleycup2019


How does this help buffalo? May aswell try to trade Stewart for a 2nd rd. seems somewhat fair straight up though

Drownedfish


So 1st place Habs should trade their top centre (on pace for 30 goals, 65 pts) for a forward who hasn't scored in almost 20 games. that makes sense

Boris Bagel



 

 

16 Nov 2014 10:16:59
I think it's completely ridiculous but you MTL fans seem dead set on getting rid of Plekanec so here's what I propose:

To MTL: Chris Stewart (retain 50%) Cody Hodgson, 2nd rd 2015 (probable 31st overall)

To BUF: Tomas Plekanec, Nikita Sherbak, Tim Bozon

Let me know what you think

As a buffalo fan i'd be willing to add if nesesary

sabres14


If mtl moves pleky it's to make room at C for galchenyuk so they wouldn't want cody hodgson but the value is good.

Cd1


Cody Hodgson has been playing LW for buffalo and looks better at wing than at centre in my opinion

sabres14


Looks better? The guys got off to an awful start. 1 goal 1 assist in 13 games? Something like that anyway

Drownedfish


Would this work? Replacing Stewart with Stafford, including Bourque to reduce MTL salary cap, and changing the 2nd to NYI:
MTL trades Tomas Plekanec, Nikita Sherbak, Tim Bozon & Rene Bouque to BUF for Drew Stafford (retain 50%) Cody Hodgson, 2015 2nd (NYI)

stanleycup2019


Habs won't trade PLek for Stewart

If it ain't broke don't fix it being as sens fan Montreal is my second least favourite team behind the leafs but your the best shot in my opinion on bring the cup back to canada ( which pains me too say)

Sensforlife


Thorton would be the last player I brought in even thought MTL needs a #1 centre I would go for marleau first I think pach-gal-marl would be a mint #1 line Thors is a guy who I don't see cup drive in anymore he just wants to play out his days in sjs marleau has the cup drive still. (Nvm my bad spelling)

sabres14


I've always loved joes game he's one of my favorite players but he just does not give 2 shits about a cup. He is like a Doan to me he is happy playin for the team and will do great during the season but will never do anything in the playoffs there is no cup drive what so ever which is extremely sad

sabres14


In short as a sabres fan I wouldn't even give a 3rd round pick for thorton he is poison to a locker room and should stay in SJS where he's happy

sabres14


16 Nov 2014 10:52:21
@sabres14, that's such crap. Ya he likes playing for San Jose, who wouldn't, not because he has mentally checked out. Ever since Thornton has been there they've been a legit Stanley Cup threat. You can't blame every playoff knock out on him especially all the talent that the sharks have.

Titties


Why would Habs to this? Thornton can't produce in playoffs and he's old and slow

Boris Bagel


Can't produce in the playoffs?
132 gp= 100 pts. If Montreal did this they would finally have a #1 centre.

OILGUY


IMO, that is close to the asking price, maybe a 2nd or more? Will Edmonton get that, only if there is a bidding war. Maybe Yakupov for Mike Richards. LA gets a RW & cap relief, EMD gets a center & playoff experience.

stanleycup2019


@stanleycup2019 yakupov has a bigger contract than richards, I'm pretty sure, which doesn't work out for LA as far as cap space goes. And yakupov could turn into a superstar, so he's not a guy you want to trade to a team in the same conference, much less the same division.

Boris Bagel


Hasbs consider Galchenyuk as their next star, they won't trade him for Eberle, Gally has way more upside, more size, he's physical (check out his hits total), deft hands and he's going to be a game breaker. not saying Eberle sucks or can't produce, but Habs see a potential superstar in Gally (that may not come to be in the end, but he's not getting traded before he reaches his prime)

Boris Bagel



 

 

13 Nov 2014 13:06:11
MTL trades Rene Bourque, Sergei Gonchar, Nathan Beaulieu & 2015 1st to BUF for Stewart (retain 50%), Brian Flynn, Mike Weber & Luke Adam
MTL dumps salary and gets a tough RW and a tough Dman. BUF gets another 1st and a young Dman (can never have too many of those).
Flynn could replace Moen. They play the same role, Flynn is younger, less expensive, has scored more points over the last three years and they are about equal in capabilities.
Mike Weber is younger, tougher and less expensive than Gonchar
Who needs to add, to complete the trade?

habsonthemove


I know that I am looking at that trade through biased eyes, but I think Murray would do the deal. Both Rene Bourque & Sergei Gonchar will be gone by the time the Sabres fortunes turn around, so taking on their salaries would not hurt the team's future. Flynn (25 pts last 3 years) is definitely an improvement over Bourque (31 pts last 3 years) because he kills penalties. Weber does not have the offensive prowess of Gonchar, but does MTL need an offensive defenseman or a gritty defenseman? IMO Nathan Beaulieu & 2015 1st >> Chris Stewart & Luke Adam, do the other players make up the difference?

stanleycup2019


13 Nov 2014 18:40:22
and what would make you think BUF would want bourque or gonchar?

they're your scraps, you can keep them.

Shankar


@Shankar if Murray could get a 1st and a good prospect for Stewart, he would definitely take Bourque and Gonchar. That trade increases MTL's cap to $6,787,634, enough to sign any player at the deadline. Bourque's contract expires this year and Gonchar is only one more year. This is a bit far fetched but maybe Bourque could be moved at the trading deadline for future considerations. LOL!

stanleycup2019


No way Habs give up on Beaulieu & and a 1st for Stewart and those throw ins, they gave up way less to get Vanek. CS is also on pace for 10pts in 82 games so far this season, so why would Habs even want him? Habs better offer getting Stafford

Boris Bagel


@Boris Bagel I agree with you, that is waaayyy too much for Stewart (but he is playing well, his Corsi # is second among the Sabres, he just not getting any results). I was shocked when that post received so many believable's and the only comments dealt with Buffalo taking on bad contracts. Murray would be front runner for Manager of the year if he could get a 1st and Beaulieu for Stewart. What do you think would be fair offer for Stewart or Stafford?

stanleycup2019


Vanek was a rental player for Montreal and they gave up a good prospect for a guy that didn't even unpack his bags.

steamer


Rene Bourque's Corsi #'s were also good last year

Boris Bagel


Vanek helped Habs make playoffs, then floated after 2 rounds (he did record 25 pts in 35 games with Habs).
Stewart is also a rental, I wouldn't give up more than a 3rd rounder for him, but Habs GM can find a better player to land, like the Jackets Foligno (also pending UFA), or PHO's Veremette (also UFA rental)

Boris Bagel



 

 

12 Nov 2014 23:35:56
EDM needs to do something with Yakupov, it needs to be a trade for a defenceman. Yakupov would thrive as a first line winger with a proper centerman, below are a list of trades that would make sense.

1. Buffalo & EDM (Most likely)

To EDM: Myers, Hodgson, NYI 1st
To Buf: Yakupov

Buf will draft: Mcdavid or eichel, they will center yakupov, reinhart as the 2nd line center, add in all the other young guys on buffalo and this team is set in a couple years.
From EDM standpoint, they now have 2 1st round pics in 2015, hodgson takes Yakupov's current roster spot, They finally get that big defencemen that you NEED in the west. Pair Myers with Schultz, Next year EDM makes the playoffs

2. Yak to pens
Imagine if malkin or Crosby actually had a talented winger, if kunitz and hornquivst can score 30 goals Yakupov will net 50, This would be best case scenario for Yakupov.

To EDM: Poulot, kaspri Kapinen,1st
To Pits: Yak

Pens don't have a deep prospect pool and after this trade they have none. However you can't have a player like Crosby and Malkin and not give them a weapon, Its like when The patriots gave Brady Moss.
For EDM, they get a young stud defenceman, promiseing winger prospect and a late first.

3. Yak to MTL
MTL loves their Russians and Galchenyuk centered Yak throughout JR.

TO EDM: Scherbak(2014 1st) Beleveau, Fucale, 1st
To MTL: Yakupov

MTL has to pay to get this deal done.
From EDM standpoint this might be the best offer because of Fucale, Mark my words after the world jrs his stock will skyrocket. he's the next best Canadian NHL goalie, we get one every 3-5 years.

4. Yak to NYI
This is a age asset trade.

To EDM: Griffin Reinhart, Dehann, ho-sang
NYI: yak

The isles finally have prospecs. This is a lot to give up for the isles but a top line of Dalcole-Taveres-Yakupov is too hard to pass up. also the accusation of leddy and boychuk, along with kulimin and grabo make this do-able.

5. What would a post be without a leaf trade?

To EDM: Gardiner,riemer, finn, 1st
To TOR: yak

Re unite Gardiner and Schultz, edm gets a starting goalie, finn is sick, who knows what the 1st will be. could be 1st overall could be 20th overall.
I actually hate this for Toronto, they need to get a big center like staal or staal. However they also need to replace the bandaid lupul.

To be honest I think Yakupov either goes to the Sabers or Islanders based on team needs and asset ages. Weather you agree or not can we all agree that EDM needs to trade Yakupov though? 3rd Line in EDM is toxic for him.

stickboi


The only trade I would do is buffolo

mcdavidsweepstakes


13 Nov 2014 04:36:25
I assure you Murray would not trade a 1st or Hodgons in addition to Myers for Yakopov. If Murray did try to land Yakupov, it would be for Myers only. You may feel this is too little, but Murray is very tight and careful with his assets.

Stanleycup2019


I could also see the Buffalo trade happen. I doubt the pens give up Kapanen. MTL likely declines. The Islanders won't trade Ho-Sang and the Toronto wouldn't be a good deal for them I think.

So I agree with mcdavidsweepstakes.

benn14


Yak is still young but now way he is worth any of those packages!

yzerman19


RE: Trade

This is completely unbeliavle, and here is why:

1) Yak is not worth three first round picks, De Haan (12th, 2009), Reinhart (4th, 2012) Ho Sang (28th, 2014)
2) The Isles do not have room on the roster to add another forward without moving some, with Bailey and Grabner returning from injury that would be 15 forwards.
3) Isles do not have scoring issues, they have defense issues, so why make that weaker
4) Boychuck is UFA, Viz is UFA, Leddy is RFA, Hickey is RFA. If none of those are re-signed and De Haan s traded then we only have 1 out of 6 d-men back next year.
5) Isles currrenlty have 7 players with more points that Yak, so why do the need him.

The bottom line is EDM fans are overvaluing Yak significantly. He is a good young player, but he is not going to bring you a package that an elite player would get.

That penguins trade is utterly ridiculous. I would have a hard time giving up just Pouliot for Yak's but would probably do it.

Crosby_87


MTl doesn't want Yak at all. & they certainly won't give up two good prospects and 2 1st for Yak
sorry OIls fans, you're stuck with the Yak

Mtl: Eller + Beaulieu

Wpg: Kane + 3rnd 16


Eller=3rd
Beaulieu does not =Kane

leaffan


A 3rd or 4th line centre and a prospect for Kane and a 3rd.
3rd=Eller
Kane>>>>>>>>> Beaulieu.

steamer


Jets need to add, Beaulie is going to be star d-mn in a few years, and Kane is a 2nd line player at best and he isn't star caliber material

Boris Bagel


@Bagel explain to us what your version of star caliber material is.

MTL: Rene Bourque, Travis Moen & Nathan Beaulieu, dumps salary and gets a power RW
BUF: Stewart (retain 50%) & Luke Adam, builds for the future with a good prospect

habsonthemove


The value BUF gets in this trade is. zero.

benn14


I guess when I posted the trade, I thought MTL was giving up too much to get Stewart. What do you think MTL would need to add to balance the trade?

habsonthemove


Why would buffalo retain anything.

giving to much to get stewart - LOL

bourque has negative value, moen is worth nothing, and beaulieu isn't worth stewart. need at least another good pick or prospect.

Shankar


Stewart alone without ratinning salary would be faire but bergevin wouldn't give one of his top prospect

Cd1


Nobody wants bourque.

steamer


MTL: Rene Bourque, Nathan Beaulieu & 2015 2nd.
BUF: Stewart (retain 50%) & Luke Adam BUF.
Bourque has to go to and part of Stewart's salary is retained if a player is acquired at the deadline. Beaulieu is MTL top prospect and Cd1 you are probably correct that Bergevin would not trade him (look what he got for Briere, Parenteau AND a 5th). Moen is actually MTL #1 PK LW (ranked 8th in the league) so he does have value and I took him out of the trade, does this work better? Are the values fair?

habsonthemove


You are stuck with worthless borque, again he's negative value. and I personally wouldn't trade stewart and adams straight up for beaulieu and a 2nd, would have to be upgraded to a first or another mid level prospect to consider this.

flames88


OK, I will try it again. I am adding Flynn and Moen. They play the same role, Flynn is younger, less expensive, has scored more points over the last three years and they are about equal in capabilities so a plus for BUF. Bourque has no value and a hefty cap hit, plus for BUF. The 1st if the season ended now would be one of the last 6 or 7, so almost a 2nd. So Beaulieu and 1st is better than Stewart, plus for MTL. The trade improves MTL without moving any of the talent from the current team and lowers their cap so they could fill in holes in the line up at the trading deadline.
MTL trades Rene Bourque, Travis Moen, Nathan Beaulieu & 2015 1st to BUF for Stewart (retain 50%) & Brian Flynn
IMO Murray would make that trade, I am not so sure about Bergevin.
Who needs to add, to complete the trade?

habsonthemove


@Cd1 no way Bourque, Moen and Bealieu would fetch you Stewart. btw the Sabres already have plenty d prospects.

benn14


Dallas made a great trade to obtain Moen to help their PK and checking. With that in mind, MTL may want to move Gonchar and replace Moen with another checking winger, soooo.
MTL trades Rene Bourque, Sergei Gonchar, Nathan Beaulieu & 2015 1st to BUF for Luke Adam, Chris Stewart (retain 50%) & Brian Flynn

habsonthemove


Habs day take out Beaulie and instead throw in Gilbert and Patteryn
