(single word yields best result)

30 Jul 2016 03:13:27
Oilers: RNH

Habs: Plekanec and McCarron

Would it be fair?

30 Jul 2016 04:20:11
Why in the hell would the Oilers want Plekaneć?!

30 Jul 2016 05:38:10
No it wouldn't be fair.

30 Jul 2016 05:57:18
Habs add Desharnais.

30 Jul 2016 06:39:23
and maybe delarose he's always tips the scales in any trade or.

30 Jul 2016 14:13:10
Lol Habs fans are the best.

30 Jul 2016 00:53:16
Habs: RNH and yak

Oilers: pacioretty, Carr and 2nd 2017.

30 Jul 2016 03:26:46
No from both teams.

Montrear over-value but the Oilers seriously won't trade anymore top 6 NHL Forwards. Chiarelli said that he isn't' trading Yakupov.

Maybe do some research before actually posting.

30 Jul 2016 03:41:10
Not worth it for Oilers.

30 Jul 2016 03:53:20
What a joke from the habs.

30 Jul 2016 13:01:25
Patches > the entire Oilers package. Easy no from Montreal.

30 Jul 2016 15:37:15
No way from the Habs. RNH is soft. Yak is unproven and crap so far. No more Habs Oilers trade talk please.
The Habs do need one more forward for the top 6. Left winger.

29 Jul 2016 05:08:31
MTL : McCarron, Andrighetto, 2nd 2017

Sharks : Hertl.

29 Jul 2016 09:11:45
Don't see Hertl being moved any time soon. San Jose counters with the same package for Montreals choice of Patrick Marleau or Joel Ward.

29 Jul 2016 17:00:27
wheres the value coming from montreal here?

29 Jul 2016 19:08:00
McCarron is the value. I wouldn't trade him. could be a very good physical force the Habs haven't had in what seems like forever. he's to young to let go.
Hertl is a good young players as well. but Hans finally have the big forward they need. hope he gets time to develop.

29 Jul 2016 21:20:54
McCarron seems like a nice prospect, but really I think he just projects to be a good 3rd line power forward. Hertl is already proven in my opinion and as long as he continues to progress he should turn out to a 30 goal scorer. I just hope you know in terms of trade value between Hertl and McCarron the difference is much larger then a 2nd and "Ghetto". just ask what you would want for Gallagher and then add a bit to that. That's Hertls Value.

30 Jul 2016 02:21:42
Hertle is a big body too ya know.

28 Jul 2016 20:15:26
MTL: Emelin, DD, 2017 1st, 2018 2nd, +

What else would mtl have to add?

28 Jul 2016 20:31:12
They would have to take out Emelin and DD and put actual good players in lol.

28 Jul 2016 20:31:55
Something of value. No Deharnais, no Emelin.

28 Jul 2016 20:35:06
hahhahaha overpayed vets (a 3rd line C and 6/ 7th dman) and picks for Nuge and Yak. Not a chance buddy.

28 Jul 2016 21:12:47
montreal fans are ridic.

28 Jul 2016 21:18:58
Take out everything and add something that could actually help the oilers.

29 Jul 2016 00:37:57
Well for one. Desjarnais and Emelin are only valuable to us Habs fans. they are not going to want our bad contracts.
So. if ya what those guys.
Maybe. Beaulieu. McCarron. Jullsen and a 1st. but. that's to much in my opinion.

29 Jul 2016 04:17:44
Big no from the Oilers, don't think Habs would be willing to give up the assets it would take to land both RNH and Yak.

28 Jul 2016 10:33:50
Blues: shattenkirk jake Allen

Tampa : kucherov Ben bishop

Help tampa to block montreal offer sheat and cap problem.

28 Jul 2016 13:28:21
Canadiens currently have less than $1mil in cap space (According to CapFriendly) so they couldn't come anywhere near affording Kucherov.

Not to mention offer sheeting him would cost a pick in each of the first three rounds at least, with possibility of an extra 1st if you go more than 7.5.

28 Jul 2016 14:47:42
Value isn't there in the deal. And as stated above Montreal can't afford the offer sheet.

28 Jul 2016 14:47:54
As much as i would like to do this trade kucherov is going to get 4-6 mil a year plus bishops is at 6 mil that's 8 mil going to TAmpa and 12 mil to blues. We would havee to include Berglund. BUt tampa says no.

28 Jul 2016 14:48:18
could you imagine kucherov and Tarasenko same line un real.

28 Jul 2016 17:19:47
That would be unreal.

28 Jul 2016 20:17:01
Yah it would be unreal so how about Kuch and a 1st for Petro.

28 Jul 2016 20:45:43
how about NO and GFYS

Petro is not for sale.

28 Jul 2016 05:02:45
Ana : Rakell, Fowler

Mtl : Beaulieu, Plekanec, Scherbak, 1st

Cap space after trade - ANA : 6.2M
MTL : 4.4M

Habs sign Rakell to bridge deal 2 yrs/ 6M
Ducks sign Lindholm to 6yrs/ 30M

Getzlaf-Kesler-Plekanec down the middle

28 Jul 2016 05:44:31

28 Jul 2016 05:58:59
That doesn't really help Anahiem in my opinion.

28 Jul 2016 14:22:24
I think you're over valuing maccarron. He's a 4th line guy at best. He didn't look good last year at all when he was called up.

29 Jul 2016 03:17:11
I disagree i think he's slowly finding his game and adds size to the roster, i'd take him over desharnais anyday as our 3rd C.

29 Jul 2016 17:04:16
slowly finding his game. No guarantee he's going to workout though. Sure he's a big body, but he's not a great skater and he is a RW.

27 Jul 2016 04:56:01
Tampa only has 6.5M left of cap space with Kucherov and Nesterov left to sign, apparently Kuchy is asking 7M per.

-Habs offer sheet Kucherov 45M over 6 years (7.5M per)
-Kucherov accepts to add to the russian connection in Montreal
-Habs have to give up a 1st, 2nd and 3rd to their rival Tampa


27 Jul 2016 05:05:18
They have 8.5 dummy.

27 Jul 2016 05:16:05
man it's 2 1sts, 1 2nd, 1 3rd. Which makes a massive difference. And for that reason Montreal doesn't do it, and Kucherov does not want to leave Tampa, but that doesn't mean he is 100% a lock for the bolts. But still.

27 Jul 2016 05:22:14
I bet Montreal would still do that McJesus if you think about it Kuch could get a lot more then that on the trade Market a way so Tampa would Match.

27 Jul 2016 05:55:27
Momtreality ain't kucherov a rw? Can he play on the left?

27 Jul 2016 05:59:32
Mont reality if we get the kuch to a real hockey market the only thing left to do is trade pleckaneck and bring shipachiov to the Russian dynasty

Patches - galchenyuk- gallagher
Kuch-shipachiov -radulov

Weber/ 0- Beaulieu
Barberio- sergachev.

27 Jul 2016 06:18:50
Price gets injured and out for season and Tampa Bay drafts Nolan Patrick with Montreals 1st round pick.

27 Jul 2016 06:55:20
$5,632,847 to $7,510,464 First, Second and Third Round Picks.

27 Jul 2016 09:14:50
Blow juo naw even without price we still in front of benning team.

27 Jul 2016 11:59:09
@Kingsliver Actually according to General Fanager they have 6.59M left dumby.

Also if its 7.5 its 1st 2nd and 3rd, it turns into 2x 1st at 7.510M.

Kucherov is a RW but shoots left, could play LW or Radulov could play LW etc.

Keep in mind that the point of an offer sheet is not only to acquire a player but to also put the other team in cap troubles if they do decide to match.

27 Jul 2016 12:51:53
Keep in mind Kucherov can still accept a million or more less and still end up making the same with Tampa. (Obviously don't know exact numbers but referring to the taxes)

27 Jul 2016 14:25:59
Very true @Ebsolutly.

27 Jul 2016 17:40:21
We aren't getting Kucherov.

27 Jul 2016 21:46:31
No1 is getting 99.9% of the players on this site, these are just fun.

29 Jul 2016 21:45:32
Lol rip Mtl cap space is peanuts mate unless Emelin and desharnais leave we're screwed.

27 Jul 2016 00:14:32
bfl-evander kane.

27 Jul 2016 06:44:17
To much drama . No thanks from mtl.

27 Jul 2016 06:56:21
Sabres add O'Reilly.

26 Jul 2016 23:08:41
Apparently Montreal is taking another stab at getting Yak.
Here's just what I think are some options,

Oilers: Yak
Habs: Juulsen or McCarron

I honestly can't see Chiarelli trading Yak for anything else from the Canadiens. He stated he's not trading him for the hell of it. And I think these players could be decent returns for Yak.
As for trading Yak, I honestly wouldn't trade him unless Oilers are getting back a legit RW who will play and make the team, or an offensive RHD. So s.

27 Jul 2016 00:18:33
These are fantastic returns.

I'd love juulsen.

27 Jul 2016 03:51:29
Like i honestly can't see anyone coming back unless it's Juulsen tbh, and idk if Montreal will want to trade away McCarron, even for Yak.

27 Jul 2016 06:58:05
Yak for Flynn and a 3rd.

27 Jul 2016 14:55:28
Julien will be spectacular in 3 years oe so no thanks and for McCarran uhmm ain't going to happen matteau a 3rd for yak and a 6 th.

26 Jul 2016 03:34:45
Clbs : Wennberg

Montreal : Beaulieu, 2nd 2017, 2nd 2018

Habs and the Jackets are both at 50 contracts. With Dubois Dubinsky Jenner, clbs is set down the middle, they get a LHD who can move the puck with top 4 potential and 2 good picks. Habs put Wennberg on the LW next to Plekanec till Pleky's contract is over then switch him to C. About the same cap hit and adresses the needs for both teams.

26 Jul 2016 05:47:52
Don't see Jackets doing this.

26 Jul 2016 23:44:27
Good value going back though. It's possibly but yeah I'd agree with BJ.

27 Jul 2016 06:58:41
Habs pass,

26 Jul 2016 02:44:14
Toronto: JVR and Josh Lievo

Anahiem: 2017 1st and 2018 1st


Toronto: JVR and Valiev

Islanders: Dal Colle, Sorkin and 2017 2nd


Toronto: JVR

Minnasota: Dumba and 2nd


Toronto: JVR and 2nd

Kings: Tyler Toffli


Toronto: JVR

Montreal: Mccaron, Fucal and 2nd 2017


Toronto: JVR and Polak (Deadline Deal)

Ottawa: Cici and 2nd


Toronto: JVR

Flyers: Sanhiem and 2nd


Leafs: JVR

Washington: Marcus Johannson and Ilya Samsonov

JVR dosent really fit the Leafs age sense he will be heading somewhere else in 2 years because he dosent fit into Toronto. The May as well just trade him for Max value.

26 Jul 2016 04:33:44
Id do the Montreal trade, wouldn't be easy to play against McCarron on the Leafs but that LW hole needs to be filled.

26 Jul 2016 05:53:21
Samsonov won't be getting traded from Caps, but JVR could be pretty dope on Capitals and could really give them that extra push for the cup.

26 Jul 2016 07:12:14
McJesus who would caps add instead then?

26 Jul 2016 07:36:51
I personally don't think they wanna get rid of Johansson, so I don't know who else I would include. I still think JVR should stay on leafs idk why nobody wants him anymore.

But idk let's just keep what you had. Maybe Jo + O'Brien or a different B prospect. And I say B because i still don't think they would want to trade away Johansson. But they definitely won't be trading away a top goalie prospect throughout the whole league, that's too much/ they won't trade him.

26 Jul 2016 09:04:45
Absolutely no chance JVR could get Toffoli. Toffolli is younger and already almost as good as JVR.

26 Jul 2016 09:23:51
In fact I'd argue he's just as good right now if anyone's up for it lol.

26 Jul 2016 11:18:27
Toffoli is far and away better than JVR.

26 Jul 2016 11:18:27
Toffoli is far and away better than JVR.

26 Jul 2016 14:33:23
Barddownbeauty why do you think the Leafs would want to trade JVR to anyone? Do you know something that no one else knows about JVR that is the reason he is being peddled at least 5 times a day on this site? If he is that expendable why would other teams want him unless they can steal him for a 2nd round pick. I'm not knocking any of your trade proposals, I'm just curious as to why is he Leaf nations go to trade player? I and many others that post replies, don't believe he is worth as much as leaf fans think he is.

26 Jul 2016 17:32:30
No way you get Toff for JVR based off age and the fact that JVR will walk in 2 years.

26 Jul 2016 22:26:38
Because JVR has a lot of value and is a UFA in 2 years IslandJet the leafs don't need him.

25 Jul 2016 17:45:04
Habs apparently in talks with colorado about landeskog:

Mtl: Sergaechev, Hudon, Emelin
Col: Landeskog.

25 Jul 2016 18:04:17
Only decent player coming from Montreal is Sergachev, and he's only 17. So. No from Colorado.

25 Jul 2016 19:36:04
Habs add chucky and a 2nd at least and take out emelin.

25 Jul 2016 21:09:09
MTL would be a gritty team with the addition of landskog but COL would say no to that offer.

25 Jul 2016 22:25:24
Chuky>>Landy lol.

26 Jul 2016 02:23:40
Landeskog > gally
Basing a player's value solely on points is ridiculous. Landeskogs rugged 2 way play and strength, let alone leadership more than puts him in a higher class. That's not a knock on gally though. Still a good player.

26 Jul 2016 06:03:00
Yup ^^^.

26 Jul 2016 17:49:22
Sergachev will become more valuable to the Canadiens than Landeskog.
So no deal.

26 Jul 2016 17:54:34
Are you talking Gallagher or Galchenyuk because landeskog is better than Gallagher but it becomes a lot closer when talking about Galchenyuk, a 23 year old 30 goal scorer that just keeps getting better.

27 Jul 2016 06:59:50
Sergaechev will be a star in a few years, Habs pass.

25 Jul 2016 16:08:27
Mtl: Plekanec, Hudon, 4th 2017

Clb: Jenner, Calvert.

25 Jul 2016 16:20:51
awful for col.

26 Jul 2016 00:58:38
Maybe more like

MTL: Plekanec, Andrighetto or Lekhonen, 2nd rd 2017


CLB: Jenner, Hartnell, 5th rd 2017

26 Jul 2016 01:31:36
What wouldn't get Jenner.

25 Jul 2016 03:16:37
To pry galchenyuk out of Montreal it would take more then cam and Boone



Colombus: werenski and Dubois


Colombus: werenski bittner and bjorstrand.

25 Jul 2016 04:46:37
Well if you want to try and pry Werenski and PLD out of Columbus its going to take a lot more than just Galchenyuk lol.

25 Jul 2016 04:47:43
lol werenski AND dubios.

25 Jul 2016 05:08:01
Dubois ain't that good.

25 Jul 2016 05:22:25
Montreal adds Price.

25 Jul 2016 05:33:30
in the long run, Dubois will be better than Mathews, mark my words,

it'll be like when teams passed on Jagr to draft Nolan, Nedved, Primeau & Ricci.

25 Jul 2016 06:50:01
Lol Boris you lost all credibility.

25 Jul 2016 07:38:35
you wouldn't even get Werenski OR Dubois, let alone both.

25 Jul 2016 12:00:44
Maybe Chucky for Werenski but doubt they'd move Dubois straight up for Chucky.

25 Jul 2016 14:34:40
Dubois ain't that good? Mtl would have drafted him at 4 if they were to have traded with the oilers.

25 Jul 2016 15:50:35
Dubois is going to be a beast. and, I don't always agree. but Boris may be right. not saying he will. but there is a chance. this kid jus kept getting better and better .

25 Jul 2016 17:16:07
Dubois will never be in the same tier as MathewsEichleBarkov what are you guys saying I find him so overated and I seen him play more then anyone on this site being from the Atalantic Canada. Yes sometimes he'd make Dynamic plays about once a game but he's not an elite offensive force like those guys he's a solid 2 way forward but not a game changer IMO. I'm saying his very max potential is Patrice Bergeron and seeing the resemblance in those to players most likely led Columbus to draft him.

25 Jul 2016 17:49:57
Lol if he turns out to be Bergeron that's insane lol. And he was NHL comparable to Jamie Benn. Pretty nice player to be compared to. Dubois is going to be a good player, but you can't not say he not going to be good. Let him actually play a year and then we'll talk about if he's good or not lol. CBJ took him over Puljujarvi. Like yeah Columbus clearly think very highly of him.

25 Jul 2016 19:50:13
The hype is too big is going to be a descent number one Center if he play Center a bit like turris.

25 Jul 2016 02:36:19
Heard that the Columbus Blue Jackets are interested in Montreal forward Thomas Plekaneć.


- 2017 2nd round pick

- Matt Calvert


- Thomas Plekaneć


25 Jul 2016 04:55:05
If a trade is worked out with Colombus involving Plekanec +, one of Wennberg or Jenner is coming back to fill the hole left by Pleky.

25 Jul 2016 05:37:27
Columbus adds.

25 Jul 2016 06:04:21
Okay well Jenner is 100% not getting traded for Plek. No from Columbus. Maybe Wennberg and a 2-3rd but not Jenner.

25 Jul 2016 06:53:35
Montreality yah that deal sounds good

Boone Jenner for Plek and Price.

25 Jul 2016 07:01:55
Wennberg is a decent size, 21 year old center that just got 40 points. 40 points isn't crazy or anything but he and Jenner won't be in a deal for Pleks.

25 Jul 2016 09:15:35
I couldn't find nothing on this trade, but I don't see pleks getting moved he will be the Habs #2 and to find a nother center most likely take the gamble on shipnakov and try and get rid of DD.

26 Jul 2016 02:23:31
With Dubois Dubinsky and Jenner, i don't see why the jackets couldn't spare Wennberg for a veteran like Plekanec who could teach them a lot about playing 2 way and who can still put up 50 pts. There would obviously be more included with Pekanec but i do think the jackets would entertain the idea at the very least.

24 Jul 2016 20:55:25
Montreal: Alex Galchenyuk, Jacob Del La Rose and Zach Fucal

Columbus: Boone Jenner, Jack Johnson, Cam Akitson and 2nd

Alex Galchenyuk would be perfect as the Long time 1st line center on the Jackets and the Canaidians get good value in return Boone Jenner can replace Galchenyuk and Jack Johnson will play with Weber.

Who adds?

24 Jul 2016 21:47:02
Bad trade for Montreal.

24 Jul 2016 21:48:15
Change the cbj pick from a 2nd to a first and it's close. I'm not a fan of mtl so I'd like to see gally go but I'd think their fans would say otherwise. Decent value in my mind though.

24 Jul 2016 21:51:52
8n what way is this a bad trade for montreal.

25 Jul 2016 01:14:01
Galchenyuk > Jenner
De La Rose.

25 Jul 2016 01:59:08
No thanks from Montreal. Galchenyuk is staying put.

25 Jul 2016 02:31:27
Ebsoutely we all know that.

25 Jul 2016 03:36:53
big No from Habs.

25 Jul 2016 04:50:41
Gal is a 30 goals scorer?

25 Jul 2016 05:17:28
Bar Down it cut the rest off. I'll try again. Lol

De La Rose.

24 Jul 2016 20:02:08
habs: shattenkirk

Blues: renway, McCaron.

24 Jul 2016 20:55:32
"Habs4life" yet you don't even know how to spell one of the prospects from your team, Martin Reway* and Michael McCarron*.

24 Jul 2016 21:17:43
Not nearly enough.

24 Jul 2016 22:53:05
I agree St. Louis will probably want picks and prospects for shatty but that won't cut it.

24 Jul 2016 23:26:51
Blues say no just because montresl/ Canadians finest is a fan of that team.

24 Jul 2016 23:43:10
Personally I would like to see Reway play in North America before the habs trade him.

25 Jul 2016 01:50:35
I wish lol.

25 Jul 2016 03:18:27
Colt show me some love bro.

25 Jul 2016 04:47:48
He's got a cold heart.

25 Jul 2016 05:40:03
Blues add.

24 Jul 2016 15:25:01
Just curious if the habs took a 3rd run at kane what would they give for him?

Mtl: Beaulieu +++?

24 Jul 2016 17:52:05

24 Jul 2016 18:10:52
Depends what Kane if it's Patrick you'd have to give up Price if it's Evander Beaulieu should be enough.

24 Jul 2016 23:49:29
Just got rid of one ego nut (Subban ) why trade for another
We need more French men and tough westerners.

25 Jul 2016 03:38:44
Habs pass if it is Kane on Sabres.

25 Jul 2016 05:41:47
Beaulieu > E. Kane.

24 Jul 2016 02:42:50
Tampa: Tyler Johnson and 1st 2017

Montreal: Alex Galchenyuk

This addressees Tampas cap issue if Tyler asks for to much.

Draft Day trade.

24 Jul 2016 05:34:13
Habs pass.

24 Jul 2016 06:11:30
Someone give me a reason that this deal won't go threw.

24 Jul 2016 06:39:25
Habs pass? haha okay there bud

24 Jul 2016 08:44:50
Johnson (who is the better player) plus a first and Habs pass? Holy.

24 Jul 2016 08:46:03
This makes zero sense. Both are RFA next summer. Since you seem to think Galchenyuk > Johnson, Galchenyuk will probably demand more $$$. So where does this help TBs cap then?

24 Jul 2016 12:10:15
Drais seem fair but I would rather have kucherov or drouin instead of small size Johnson.

24 Jul 2016 13:31:02
Yea and I'd rather have Price for Gudlevskis but I guess that won't happen, huh?
Srsly, it's Galchenyuk + for Johnson.

24 Jul 2016 13:50:48
I agree. Habs pass. Galchenyuk has way more up side. He is going to be a beast for a lot of years. Habs should never trade this kid. I wish everyone would stop the Beaulieu trade talk. He is going to be a great player for the Habs. Habs need a top 6 and this will be a great season.

24 Jul 2016 15:07:44
Galchenyuk has a way higher ceiling than Johnson, is bigger and is 3 years younger.
The habs don't want another small forward. They keep Galchenyuk.

24 Jul 2016 17:00:48
Galchenyuk will ask for less money because he's younger and he's bigger and puts up more points on a weaker team but lol Johnson's better.

24 Jul 2016 23:26:55
Habs pass, love Johnson but Galchenyuk will be better. Johnson's last season points total is worrysome even if he missed 13 games.

25 Jul 2016 03:43:08
Galchenyuk 30 goals; the tiny and older guy on Tamps had 14

30 > 14 according to Corsi and math.

straight to the dumbest trade post hall of fame.

ARZ : Dvorak, 5th

Montreal : Juulsen, Andrighetto, 2nd 2017

Dvorak second line is a conspiracy man that's pretty risky. And he's center. I wouldn't change his position in his first year in the league, nor do I think he will play next year in the NHL.

I'm not going to comment on the trade because i'm unfamiliar with the Montreal players so I'll leave it to people who know more about them.

Dvorak has established himself outside of the NHL more than Juulsen and ghetto. So I'm going to say Arizona says no politely.

Just trying different scenarios for the LW spot, Dvorak would not be as expensive as other players to acquire, and i do think that he could be NHL ready this season. Juulsen as top 4 RHD potential, Ghetto can play 2nd or 3rd line and i added a 2nd to sweetten the deal. i'd personnaly prefer a guy like Skinner for that spot but acquiring him would most likely create a hole somewhere else.
