det- abdealaker-quincey

04 Sep 2015 00:02:21
Montreal trades Galchenyuk, Tinordi and Gallagher to Chicago for Patrick Kane

04 Sep 2015 11:37:14
Then they have no top center prospect

04 Sep 2015 11:56:10
How to ruin a team

04 Sep 2015 01:04:28
Montreal: Jarred Tinordi, 3rd round pick

Ottawa: Jared Cowen

Montreal: Alexei Emelin

Carolina: Roland Mckeown

04 Sep 2015 04:10:02
The second trade is laughable

04 Sep 2015 06:00:30
Not a hope from the Canes

04 Sep 2015 12:42:42
McKeown is a super underrated prospect. Canes decline easily.

He was rated all over the board and some had him rated as high as #20 and he went #54. I've seen him play myself, fantastic defender

03 Sep 2015 20:24:11
Tor: Gardiner

Mon: Del La Rose,Fucal and Emilin

Mon: 2nd 2018

Bos: 2nd 2017
Happens at 2017 draft

04 Sep 2015 05:12:30
Habs pass on Gardiner

04 Sep 2015 09:37:55
FAR too much for Gardiner.

03 Sep 2015 23:50:21

Peter holland, Roman Polak and a third round pick for
Smith-Pelly, Alexei Emelin, Zachary Fucale and a 2nd round pick.



04 Sep 2015 05:16:08
Polka? Habs better off with Emelin, at least he can hit

04 Sep 2015 05:23:13
I would rather not make the trade leave smith pelley on the fourth line and give hudon a try on that line with eller and kassian plus I doubt emelin would waive his ntc to got to the leafs

03 Sep 2015 21:33:36
Clear cap

Mtl: Emelin
Clb: 4th

Mtl: Desharnais
NJD: 3rd, 7th

Pitch for kane

Mtl: Galchenyuk, Beaulieu, Lekhonen, 1st
Chi: Kane

04 Sep 2015 03:57:46
IF Kane is put up for trade, Chicago would recieve better offers than that from like 10 other teams.

04 Sep 2015 05:26:46
there would be a lot of holes left in that lineup after those deals kane would not replace all of that plus I don't think he would want to come to montreal anyway. and I wouldn't really want that contract seeing as though it would probably mean they wouldn't be able to resign price and or pacioretty

03 Sep 2015 21:27:03

Mon: chucky, desharnais, emelin


Toronto : marner, lupul, braco

Leaf get rid of lupul

And Mon get rid of cap Space

04 Sep 2015 03:47:23
Wow where did u get that Crack from??

04 Sep 2015 03:54:14
Wow very easy no for Toronto
Marner > Galchenyuk
Bracco >> Emelin
Deharnais #'s are inflated similarly to Bozak for playing with elite snipers (Kessel/Paciorety)

04 Sep 2015 04:12:04
Heavily favours Habs lol Marner > "Chucky" and I'll take lupul over DD and Braco over Emelin. Wasn't Braco just drafted by the leafs in the second round? Anyways another classic

04 Sep 2015 05:17:27
Habs won't trade Gally

04 Sep 2015 05:28:24
i guess the values are close especially for one of your deals lol.but I personally would never do this let's just stick it out with chucky

04 Sep 2015 05:43:32
MF has broken out and now he's on the loose again! Somebody stop this animal, he's gone insane!

04 Sep 2015 12:46:08
You sure are quick to bash the Leafs but honestly that package is absolutely awful. Deharnais and Emelin suck, plus you aren't getting two of the Leafs best prospects.

03 Sep 2015 19:40:39
Habs:Galchenyuk,DD and emeilin

Leafs: Nylander, bozak and 3rd 2016

Gives Toronto a future number 1 center while riding the Canadians of unwanted contracts and getting a future elite goal scorer

Habs: Smith pelley

Leafs: 4th

Rids Montreal of a bad contract but gives leafs a young player that showed potential to be a 2nd liner on Anaheim who is still young.

Mon:Gilbert and 1st 2016

Van: Hamuis

Gives the habs a top 2 defensman and gives Van a 1st Rd pick.

03 Sep 2015 20:27:14
This is going to make montreal finest mad. lol

03 Sep 2015 21:17:12
dream on leaf fan galchenyuk >> nylander
desharnais> bozak
Paid less younger and prove that he can play on the first Line

And emelin for a third I could live with that!

So This would be bether

Leaf: marner, 2nd and lupul

For Desharnais, emelin , chucky

That 2nd become a first if lupul don't play more then 50 game a year!

03 Sep 2015 21:32:40
Horrible for Montreal.

03 Sep 2015 22:08:27
Toronto already has a future #1 C (Marner)

I don't see why Montreal would trade DSP for just a 4th.

Change Gilbert to Tinordi and Canucks accept

03 Sep 2015 22:44:42
1. Bad trade for Tor and Mtl

2. Potential to play on 2nd line for a 4th? How is 800 000 / 1 year a bad contract?

3. Habs need offence. Not more d.

03 Sep 2015 23:31:47
No thanks from T.O

04 Sep 2015 00:01:59
the habs aren't that desperate to get rid of emelin that they have to trade galchenyuk

04 Sep 2015 02:30:56
Take out galchenuk and nylander. Then ok

Nylander is way better then him

04 Sep 2015 00:54:27
Torontos biggest mistake has been not developing their own group of prospects. With new management with a sensible mind set, it doesn't seem likely that Toronto will be trading players from their farm especially their elite ones. Regardless, galchenyuk is an exceptional talent and he should remain in Montreal. Both players are home grown and should remain with their original clubs.

The smith Pelly trade makes no sense either. Toronto has no room for another depth player. And moving a draft pick for a player who will be playing in the AHL is not smart for Toronto right now

04 Sep 2015 01:54:35
Believable on the "hammer" trade!

04 Sep 2015 05:19:12
DSP, bad contract?? he makes less $1M, perfect for 3rd or 4th line checker

04 Sep 2015 05:20:34
Habs won't trade Gally, especially to the Leafs

04 Sep 2015 05:31:24
that 1 year 800,000 contract of smith pelley really has handcuffed montreal lol

04 Sep 2015 07:19:50
Big LOL @ "Galchenyuk >> Nylander"

03 Sep 2015 18:47:11
Chi: Kane
Mon: price, subban, galchenyuk, pachioretty, and 2 firsts

03 Sep 2015 19:08:33
Ok, even Mario Lemieux couldn't fetch that lol

03 Sep 2015 19:09:05
No from the Hawks ;)

03 Sep 2015 19:20:35
Only if CHI retains 50%

03 Sep 2015 19:21:05
Hope this is a joke/troll haha

03 Sep 2015 19:25:47
I hope it's a joke

03 Sep 2015 19:53:25
What? Haha he isn't even top 10 in the league

03 Sep 2015 20:09:16
Get them scraps outta HERE Boi! U know better than that.

03 Sep 2015 20:22:32
Hawks don't need Subban. Haha. To make it some what work, take out Subban, and add Crawford and Bickell from Chicago. Overall, great post. Ha ha

03 Sep 2015 23:42:26

04 Sep 2015 02:32:58
Super Mario could have fetched way more. Your talking bout one of the greats of all time. If he did not get hurt and have those problems he would have got records that 99 has.

04 Sep 2015 03:06:59
No way from Chicago! They also need Gallagher, fucale and 2 more firsts. And half of everyone's salary needs to be retained

04 Sep 2015 04:01:06
Yea but all these Montreal scraps for stars post lately is laughable, this post is a direct response for how funny those other posts are.

04 Sep 2015 05:21:12
Hawks need to add Toews and Keith to make this happen

03 Sep 2015 17:55:49
Montreal: Tom Gilbert, Christian Thomas

New Jersey: 3rd round pick

03 Sep 2015 19:09:27
Sure why not

03 Sep 2015 04:29:37
So rumour has it that Kane is on the chopping block, I honestly don't think that the Hawks will come through with the trade and go for it unless the offer is to hard to pass up on, Buffalo, Boston and Montreal are rumoured to have the most interest in Kane. No matter who gets him they would have to give up some very good players for him here are some possible traders

Chi: kane, bickell, 4th
Bos: krecji, pasta, 2nd


Chi: Kane, bickell, 3rd
Buf: Reinhart, ennis,1st 2016, 2nd 2017


Chi: Kane, bickell
Mon: plekanec, fucale, tinordi, galchenyuk, 1st 2016, 2nd

03 Sep 2015 06:36:14
Why do you have Bickell involved in every one? Barely any teams will be able to take Kane and his $10M let alone adding another what, $4.5M?
If anything I could see him going to Buffalo with Reinhart involved, And more. But that would be good for both teams. I like the Hawks and Kane (as a hockey player) a lot. going to suck if they feel they have to trade him.

03 Sep 2015 06:52:52
are you on crack?=, with the mtl trade?

his value is kessel, the rape allegation and insane contract hurt his trade chip.

come back to earth.

03 Sep 2015 08:38:38
Don't think he'll be traded Chicago has to suspend him or something though. I don't think they'd want to trade him also the NMC. But I think Buffalo, his home town I believe, would be a good spot. Reinhart is expandable and will be the A+ prospect, potentially a high first rounder, and a top 6 roster player would be a pretty good package and Buffalo would be one of the only teams that can take his cap.

03 Sep 2015 09:51:24
Hahahahaha! His value is Kessel?? Yea Kessel has a Calder trophy, a Conn Smyth trophy and 3 Stanley cups by the age 26 as well. Wow! Are you on crack?

03 Sep 2015 12:43:42
Take out Chucky and put Gilbert instead and the trade is good. Why would Chicago want Fucale?

03 Sep 2015 13:53:25
Take out Galchenyuk and put in Gilbert and the trade is good?? "Chucky" is the only piece of value there that Chicago would want! Wow. Bunch of cr@p doesn't equal Kane. Not even close.
Jesus. Habs fans have just surpassed Leafs fans in delusion, been working up to it the last few weeks but that comment is the tipping point. Congrats.

03 Sep 2015 16:34:06
Montreal declines.

They already have lots of RWer's and lots of young RW wing prospects. By taking away Plekanec and Galchenyuk you leave Montreal with Desharnais, Eller, Mitchell. That's not good.

03 Sep 2015 17:34:35
Hawks can keep Kane. Don't want him eating up all the salary cap. good player. But over paid.

03 Sep 2015 18:05:49
Doubt Kane gets moved. If he does I imagine it is to Buffalo. Return would probably be along the lines of Reinhart, Moulson, Gionta, a 1st, and a 2nd. Maybe even throw in Carrier. IDK, but it would make Buffalo a very scary team upfront, but again I doubt it happens.

04 Sep 2015 01:23:03
That's kinda what I was thinking as well MG69, something like Reinhart, Moulson, 20161st and a good D prospect or player (Psyk maybe?). But Eichel just said he is moving in with Moulson this week so I would switch in Ennis maybe?
Either way, I actually don't see them moving him but if they do I see Buffalo being the spot.

04 Sep 2015 05:23:28
since Kane might be going to jail, Habs should only offer some picks and B list prospects like Thomas or Dumont

02 Sep 2015 07:22:42
Montreal- PK Subban, Jared Tinordi, Jacob De La Rose

Anaheim- Ryan Kesler, Hampus Lindholm, Simon Despres, Anton Khudobin

Montreal- Alexi Emelin, Anton Khudobin(retained 1 million)

Buffalo- Jamie McGinn, 5th RDP

Montreal- David Desharnais

New Jersey- Blake Coleman & 5th RDP

Montreal- Tomas Plekanec(retained 1.5 million)

Washington- Marcus Johansson & 3rd RDP

Patches Galchenyuk Semin
Johansson Kesler Gallagher
McGinn Eller Kassian
Thomas Mitchell Weise

Markov Lindholm
Beaulieu Petry
Despres Gilbert

Price Tokarski

02 Sep 2015 08:23:27
Give me the ANA package all day. Lindholm will be exceptional.

02 Sep 2015 11:28:59
No from Washington, if anything Montreal adds a third

02 Sep 2015 14:25:45
That trade is AWFUL for Anaheim. Lindholm is very underrated along with Despres. Plus adding Kesler?? This is idiotic for the Ducks, if they want to get worse they'd do that

01 Sep 2015 02:16:08
Mtl: Desharnais, 3rd
Van: Higgins, 7th

01 Sep 2015 14:00:51
Take out DD and I'd do it from Canucks side.

02 Sep 2015 03:36:23
I'm saying that because I don't want him on the nucks

04 Sep 2015 05:25:08
Habs say take out Higgins and add 2nd rounder instead

31 Aug 2015 18:49:37
Hearing the Habs are shopping Lars Eller. The Vancouver Canucks, Washington Capitals and St-Louis Blues are interested in acquiring him. Here are trades that could happen with each team:

Vancouver trades Chris Higgins and a 2nd round pick to MTL for Lars Eller and a 3rd round pick.

Washington Capitals trade Marcus Johansson for Lars Eller, Flynn and a 4th round pick.

St -Louis Blues trade Jori Lehtera for Lars Eller, Sven Andrighetto, Tim Bozon, Zachary Fucale and a 1st round pick.

If we trade to Canucks:


If we trade to caps:


If we trade to Blues:


The Lehtera trade is the best overall because the Habs made the trade fair with Eller, a couple of prospects and a 1st round pick. The Habs now have maybe the best Center depth in the league except for the Penguins. The first line with Lehtera is kind of the same in STL. Patches is better than Shwartz and Semin is a Russian like Tarasenko. The Habs now have a great top nine. They can now score more goals!

31 Aug 2015 19:10:05
Lehtera would be a great fit on the Habs

31 Aug 2015 19:19:27
Every one of those got less and less believable.

31 Aug 2015 19:21:40
Good lord.

31 Aug 2015 19:25:22
Except Johansson is far better than eller and we really don't want Flynn and a bad pick, to me it'd probably be more like mojo for eller and a second or third round pick

31 Aug 2015 20:09:41
Holy Overpayment for Lehtera wow. You sure you're not accidentally trading for Backes? Lehtera isn't that great and only had decent numbers because he played Tarasenko and Schwartz.

Capitals trade isn't terrible but Habs add a better pick or prospect IMO

Canucks don't want or need Eller. Fine at C with Sedin, Horvat and Sutter.

31 Aug 2015 20:10:12
You are not geting Lehtera for scraps, seriously.

Neither are you going to get Johanson

Comparing Semin to tarasenko is hysterical.

Best center depth in the league? That made me laugh so hard. so funny.

31 Aug 2015 21:37:05
"Best center depth in the league" now that's what I call funny

31 Aug 2015 22:18:53
if by best center depth in the league you mean your only centes are depth centers then yes. best team in the league with depth centers.

31 Aug 2015 23:18:29
Hahaha @Ovie. Good one. Montreal only has better C depth then maybe Nashville, Carolina, Calgary, Toronto, New Jersey and Arizona.

01 Sep 2015 03:48:47
Hahahaha What a post, thanks for the laughs.

01 Sep 2015 08:07:32
@BJ: Guess you can scratch Calgary off that last (soon). Monahan, Bennett, Backlund (very undervalued)

01 Sep 2015 08:54:28
And Carolina, both Staals, Lindholm

01 Sep 2015 15:55:58
1st trade - Possible, but Higgens would play on the 2nd line with Plekanec and DD would centre the 3rd line. Plus McCarron would be in the AHL and De La Rose would play 3rd line LW with DD and Kassian.

2nd trade - Won't happen. Makes the Caps worse blues the team will have to end up putting faith in Burakovsky being able to be a top 6 winger.

3rd trade - Huge Overpayment by Montreal for a guy who has played one season and played that one season with St.Louis' two young rising superstars (Schwartz, Taresanko). Pacioretty may be on the same level as those two, but Semin is not (at least not anymore). Plus St.Louis wouldn't want to break up the STL line as it is their highest scoring line. Last thing I'm pretty sure Lehtara is injured.

01 Sep 2015 18:42:09
Kings lover let's get something straight right now. Though I believe you are correct with saying that this was an over payment (of crap Players) Quantity does not equal quality. Lehtera is a good center and it just so happens that Tarasenko and him click on a whole nether level, (like Hall and Oates did). SO no the blues will not trade him.

There is no way in hell Max Pacioretty is on Vladimir Tarasenko's level. After this season I will bet to say that he isn't even on swartzs level. I Like patches but he is a power forward and not even the best power forward.

02 Sep 2015 01:31:50
pacioretty is no where near taresenkos level???!!! r u crazy. pacioretty IS montreals offense. he has no help up front what so ever. taresenko has people around him like backes stasny shwartz and more, pacioretty doesnt. also lethera is not worth a first.

02 Sep 2015 04:44:09
@Russian tank
If you were actually a blues fan you would know that Tarasenko has out grown Lehtera and is now going to play with Backes or Steen or Stastny whoever their 1st line C is. Lehtera is just another Patrick Berglund.

02 Sep 2015 13:55:02
Because I am a blues fan I know how special those two are together.

Do you actually watch the games. Do you actually read blues articles. Cause you are dead wrong. They tried putting tarasenko with statsny last year didn't work. They tried every line combination under the sun and the best line which will be the #1 line is swartz, lethera, tarasenko. But since you obviously don't follow the blues I will lay it out for you what Hitchcock has already planned.

swartz Lehtera tarasenko
steen statsny Jaskin
Brouwer Backes Fabbri/Rattie
Ott Brodizack Reeves

Jaybo Petro
Gunner SHatty
Linbhom Bortuzzo

ALLen elliot

02 Sep 2015 13:59:42
Obviously you never played the sport your self. Chemistry is everything in hockey/ YOu could put the best three players on a line together and amout to nothing. But you put the right 2 or 3 on the same line that read each other know where they other one will be at all times and they create magic. Do you know how many times the best team on paper has been beaten by a lesser team. with all the number ones overall you think edm would actually be able to make the playoffs. BUt they can't cause all they have is a team filled with potential and no one with the heart to actually play together as a team. When they traded perron they traded their best player. He had heart the rest of the team is a bunch of individuals.

03 Sep 2015 00:04:11
I did not compare Semin to Tarasenko. I said that they are both Russians and that Lehtera wouldn't need to change his system. Besides Semin at his best is better than Tarasenko. I just that they have good Center depth because Plekanec is on the third Line. Understand? They might have the best no.3 Center in the league if Plekanec is there

03 Sep 2015 00:25:52
You obviously haven't been following the oilers as you would know that the oilers had NO SECOND LINE (untill yak went on a hot streak) OR THIRD. AND NO DEFENSE. It wasnt about hall nuge or the core players in edm(except for shultz the kids got no excuse) It was depth. The fact that our development of later round draft picks has been terrible and have had horrible uppermangement deciasions like hiring eakins. We had no second line center for a few months in to the season proves it. So please stop bringing edm as an example when you know nothing about how many terrible decisions have been made by upper manegment.

03 Sep 2015 05:47:18
If you think that semim I better than tarasenko then there is nothing left to talk

03 Sep 2015 17:15:54
subban76 you have just lost all credibility

04 Sep 2015 05:25:56
Habs rather have a 2nd rounder than Higgins

31 Aug 2015 17:23:00
NYI- Brock Nelson
MTL- Eller, 3rd 2016

31 Aug 2015 17:40:31
No from NYI. They already have a traffic jam at C.

31 Aug 2015 18:38:45
Why would the islanders trade a better younger player fr eller. Nelson is a RFA and of a team wants to trade for him it starts with a first round pick, or top prospect.

31 Aug 2015 17:10:04
SJ- Patrick Marleau
MTL- Desharnais, 2016 1st

31 Aug 2015 17:40:51
Yeah so these were all bad

04 Sep 2015 05:26:47
Sharks need to add

31 Aug 2015 16:00:26

MTL trades David Desharnais, Arturri Lekhonen and a 5th round pick to Florida for Jussi Jokinen and a 5th round pick. Montreal gets a top 6 forward with amazingly talented hands. Florida gets Desharnais who can be put on the wing or be moved at Center. They also a skilled prospect in Lekhonen to deepen their prospect pool. Then, Montreal trades Gilbert to Arizona for a 3rd round pick.




01 Sep 2015 15:58:25
Doesn't really help Florida

31 Aug 2015 03:26:32
Rumor of eller to van

I disagree as eller can be effective as a 3rd line centre

Maybe one day a 2nd liner

Makes sense as they want to free up a spot for galchenyuk

Now Desharnais on the other hand.

Mtl: Desharnais, bozon, flynn
Van: Sbisa, Prust, 7th

Would love to see gally play centre

But not to the demise of the danish

31 Aug 2015 13:20:01
I highly doubt Montreal will trade for a player they just traded

31 Aug 2015 15:11:06
Sbisa >>>>> Desharnais
Prust >>>>> Flynn

31 Aug 2015 16:41:58
Why does Vancouver make that trade?

31 Aug 2015 18:41:52
As much as I don't like Sbisa, the Canucks don't have the defensive depth to make this trade and it means that a younger forward won't get a spot in the lineup.

31 Aug 2015 02:48:48

MTL trades Desharnais, Bozon and a 4th round pick
Mikkel Boedker and a 5th round pick




04 Sep 2015 05:28:04

31 Aug 2015 01:40:44
San Jose trades Marleau and Thornton to Montreal for Eller, Plekanec, Gilbert, Andrighetto, and a 1st rd pick

31 Aug 2015 07:28:50
I have a feeling you are just trolling for your own humour.
Not even a little bit funny.

31 Aug 2015 07:33:34
Good one.
