To Mon: camnelRi

To njd: 2nd, 3rd,4th.

03 Dec 2016 21:55:49
MTL: Gallagher, 3rd, 6th
CGY: Brodie.

03 Dec 2016 17:52:23
With Tavares MAYBE on the market, I think the habs should try and grab him. Of course, NYI should be getting nhl ready players of impact and prospects for such a trade to happen.

MTL: Pacioretty, Scherbak, Beaulieu, Lindgren, 1st round pick.

NYI: Tavares, Hickey

The Islanders get 2 NHL ready players: Pacioretty is a 35 + goal scorer at 4.5M AAV, Beaulieu is a large improvement over Hickey with a higher offensive ceiling at 1M AAV. They then get a potential top 6 forward, they get a blue chip goalie prospect (really) and a draft pick.

The Canadiens get an elite centerman in Tavares and a bottom pair defenseman who can at times play a second pair role.

03 Dec 2016 20:21:57
Nah he's signing with the Leafs.

03 Dec 2016 21:32:53
there are rumor on other sites the Montreal are involve in the Tavares, BUT patch and another piece is what the rumor is , the problem with that, is you need patch to play with Taveres, if you want to contend for a cup, I love gally and would hate to trade him especially in our conference, but it, s going to take something to get him, I think i would rather give my first round this year, and my second round and a beaulieu, and a Carr, you will also need to unload salary to make room for Tavares.

03 Dec 2016 22:03:46
I would think if the Canadians wanted to get Tavares they would keep Pacioretty so that he would have an elite winger to play with. I mean that would definitely get Tavares, but I don't understand trading Pacioretty away.

03 Dec 2016 17:22:23
To Mon: bailey, leddy, Tavares
To NYI: patchioretty, 1st, emelin, 2nd, sherbak.

03 Dec 2016 17:39:23
I don't think that is enough at all.

03 Dec 2016 17:44:30
Stop. There is no way in hell that NYI take. Tavares is a top 10 Center in the league and that is not a good enough return.

03 Dec 2016 18:59:03
WTF is with this Montreal delusion lately?!
You don't even know how to spell your players names!

03 Dec 2016 16:26:18
To Mon: bailey, leddy
To NYI: 1st, emelin, 2nd

To Mon: hanzel
To Arz: 2nd, 3rd, Carr




03 Dec 2016 17:41:19
Think Mont needs a center with a little more offence

I know this would never happen but bozak would be a good pick up for them good defensive good on draw good play maker that could get the puck to wingers.

03 Dec 2016 22:04:49
No from Isles and can the Habs afford these moves your making?

03 Dec 2016 15:41:11
Col : Duchene

MTL : Pacioretty, Hudon, 3rd

Makes sense for both team and its time Duchene comes back to Canada.

03 Dec 2016 18:59:27

03 Dec 2016 15:35:35
To Mon: Vermette
To Ana: plekanec, 2nd

To Mon: Tatar
To Det: patchioretty

To Mon: Brodie
To Cal: 2nd, 2nd

Who adds? What do they add?

03 Dec 2016 15:45:51
30 goals Pac for Tattar . no way in hell!

03 Dec 2016 16:24:26
Brodie is so undervalued. No way Calgary takes two seconds.

03 Dec 2016 17:41:55
No way Mont trades there captain for tatar.

03 Dec 2016 22:06:15
No from Anaheim they literall have no cap space and Vermette is pretty much the same as Plekanec but for like 5 mil less.

03 Dec 2016 08:03:24
Mtl - Beauleau, juuleson, 2nd

Arizona - Doan.

03 Dec 2016 08:38:19
Don't post again if you're being serious about this. Brutal.

03 Dec 2016 10:18:22
Lol agreed with McJ
Any of those 3 pieces is an overpayment for Doan. Actually a 2nd for Doan if he's willing to leave Zona seems fair.

03 Dec 2016 15:29:58
I second McJesus on that one.

03 Dec 2016 21:16:26
Desharnais for Doan is a fair trade.

03 Dec 2016 22:07:00
No boris. It isn't.

03 Dec 2016 02:41:41
If Mtl wants a top 4 D but not move to much their roster how bout just this:
Mtl:Gallagher, Lindgreen

Min: Brodin, Joel Eriksson Ek

Same concept, less complicated.

03 Dec 2016 01:09:25
Okay I have to send a mtl, at least their is going to be one possible hand trade on here today. I posted a similar one earlier but quickly found the flaws here it is modified and better:

Min:Joel Eriksson Ek, Brodin, Granlund,

Mtl:Charlie Lindgreen, Patches, Beaulieu, Sherback,2rd pick

Min has no good prospect at goalie position and Lindgreen is going to be a starter maybe next year but definitely between now and 2018-2019.Granlund and Patches could use a change of scenery. Mtl need a second line center=Granlund. Wild needs top line forward=Patch. Mtl need top 4 D=Brodin. Beaulieu could replace Brodie in Minnesota or where he will have the chance to play with more talented defenseman like Suter, Dumba, Spurgeon, ect. Sherback is a great prospect plus the second makes the deal fair for both team.

03 Dec 2016 21:18:45
Habs pass.

02 Dec 2016 20:07:24
Montreal needs two forward I would love to see Nathan Mckinnon, I would hope,1st pick 2017, Nathan Beaulieu, TP/ DD one of them, and then trade other for Handzel Radulov . Galchen . mckinnon
Patch. handzel. gally
car mccarron shaw
byron, mitchell, danault/ flin.

02 Dec 2016 20:25:11
Mackinnon isn't going anywhere. He's probably one of the only untouchables on Colorado.

02 Dec 2016 22:01:02
Lol. Don't even know what you said but wow is that so delusional! Right on trend for the crazy Montreal proposals tho.

02 Dec 2016 22:42:09
Im sure The Av's would want Price so how about
Soderberg, Gelinas, Grimaldi, 1st-2017

03 Dec 2016 00:20:08
This is absolute garbage for Colorado. Even as a Habs fan i can say all these trades lately are horrible.

03 Dec 2016 01:03:34
I don't think Radulov is going anywhere either. I'm pretty sure he's been producing as they had hoped.

03 Dec 2016 21:20:13
Leafs add, I think.

02 Dec 2016 18:34:45
Mtl wants and needs top 4 defenseman for Cup run.
Vancouver needs to get younger for rebuild

Mtl trades Gallagher

Vcr trades Edler after he agrees to remove ntc.
This trade may need a little tweaking for cap purposes.

02 Dec 2016 18:53:10
Man is that one sided. Gallagher is one of MTL's best forwards and Edler is out for another 4-6 weeks. Is that really the most effective way for MTL to get their top 4 D-man? NOT AT ALL.

02 Dec 2016 19:00:32
Habs won't trade Gallagher (in his prime and on a good cap value wise deal) for an aging Edler who is over the hill and carries costly $5M cap hit for 2 more years.

02 Dec 2016 19:50:14
Boris many thought Weber was over the hill also, how's that deal working out for you.
Mtl in a win now mode, not in a few years from now.
There is cost to get a top4. If not Gallagher maybe Sergachev and Wash 2nd.

02 Dec 2016 20:26:15
Sergachev has more value than Edler. If you really want a top 4 D, look somewhere else because Edler isn't even that good.

02 Dec 2016 23:34:53
Rederov I agree with what you said. I mean I understand Mtl is in a cup mode but at the same time Gallagher is on of are biggest trade value because of his hard work and great contract. The only D in Van that I would get for Gallagher is :

Van:Tanev, Virtanen

Mtl:Gallagher,2rd pick.

03 Dec 2016 00:24:33
@Renidrag did you just compare Edler to Shea Weber? How high are you right now.

03 Dec 2016 21:21:52
why would anyone have thought Weber was the over the hill? he had 20 goals last season!

03 Dec 2016 21:24:25
Sergachev? are you nuts?

more like Desharnais, Pateryn and a 3rd for Edler.

02 Dec 2016 14:13:46
Mtl:Patches, Beaulieu, Noah Julsen,2rd pick

Wild:Brodin, Coyle, Joel Eriksson Ek.

02 Dec 2016 14:36:24
Don't see any reason Minnesota accepts that.

02 Dec 2016 14:51:22
No from habs. Pretty much giving up patches for Coyle. Joel Eriksson ark does look interesting tho.

02 Dec 2016 16:12:04
@2016 nhl

So if u suggest that patches for coyle is no dice, how is juulsen a second and bealieu REMOTELY close to brodin and Joel Erikson ek.

02 Dec 2016 18:55:19
Replace Eriksson Ek with Haula/ Niederreiter and you have a deal.

02 Dec 2016 19:06:21
Not far off @topshelfshitters.

02 Dec 2016 19:08:30
As long as Joel Eriksson Ek can return to NHL from Europe right away, Habs should consider this swap . and put Coyle at C with Gallagher and Eriksson Ek on LW
Plek goes to 3C (with Danault and Shaw)
and make Weber captain.

03 Dec 2016 02:29:32
Boris your funny. If mtl get Ek Eriksson it's to put him at his natural position=center . He is a 6'2 center with great faceoff work and great defensive reflex while having a scoring touch that gets better every season since he's 16. Why not put him center?

03 Dec 2016 15:52:23
I know you think it's impossible, but in my life time of playing and following hockey, i, ve seen great players be moved, the coffee, Iafrate, Messier, jagr, Gretzky. Robinson, F Mahovlich, etc, everything is possible, the Avas need some help on D Montreal scoring issues, there are very few player out there that can help Montreal immediately, You have Mckinnon, Dairaitl, Mcdavid, Scheiffele, Duchene etc I think Mckinnon or Duchene, are a poosibilty.

03 Dec 2016 16:05:59
In my life time I've seen great players move, from THE BIG M and phil Esposito, JC Trembley, or all member of the big 3 to all the great islanders and oilers player of those championship team to jagr etc, any and all of these superstar kid would help Montreal, the only one that has fallen a little short beside Yakupov, may be Mckinnon.

03 Dec 2016 16:45:49
when you say price for mckinnon, my answer, what has Nathan won? MVP. NOPE . Maurice Richard trophy. nope, he would be three scorer on a habs team that has problem scoring especially on the road and a -3,. and a equal trade for price by himself, noway, Nathan has no turned into the best player on his team, price is the best goalie in the world, and I watch Nathan play must of his junior a carrier, personal I thought he would already be fight with Mcdavid as one of the premiere players in the leaque.

02 Dec 2016 11:58:39
To Mon:RNH

To Edm: 1st, Carr.

02 Dec 2016 12:57:10
Not enough at all from MTL.

02 Dec 2016 14:07:06
Carr is a small career 4th liner. His value is next to nothing. Sure he did well in ahl but hasn't transitioned.

02 Dec 2016 14:56:47
With a healthy squad, a habs first is almost a 2nd from a weak team, no reason they shouldn't be picking 24-30. A bottom 6 prospect and that pick won't get it done. Hawks (usually picking in the same range) had to include 2 better prospects with that pick to get laad last year who is older and was on an expiring contract.

02 Dec 2016 15:53:57
Edmonton after picking themselves up off the floor from laughing so hard. Declines.
If the pick was 1st overall this may have slight consideration, but still likely wouldn't go down. Van needs the first rounder bad, better chance of attaining a player from their roster for the 1st round pick offered up.

Montreal had their chance to attain RNH but were too greedy. Since the Habs owe a future favor to the Oil for the Petry trade, Mtl needs to ante up something of significance in the next deal that goes down between these 2 teams. Suggest adding Markov and Sergenchev to the deal. Then perhaps it may tweak PC's interest. Otherwise. sorry Habs no can do.

Realistically, Montreal needs their first round pick anyways and should be looking at finding a way to move up in the draft to get a better first round pick as the allmighty cap problem is about to surface in Montreal when Price needs to be resigned and they need skilled entry level salary players in the lineup soon.

02 Dec 2016 17:43:51
So you're saying RNH is worth a 1st, Markov, and Sergachev? Lol give your head a shake.

02 Dec 2016 18:56:28
What is with everyone thinking RNH will be traded to Montreal or even be traded ANYWHERE?! Get real people.

02 Dec 2016 19:55:36
Yes Redrov he is worth at least that.
Markov is an older UFA with only a little gas left in the tank. He's useful to a team that needs D now for until the end of the season and likely lost in Free agency, so his value is very diminished.
Sergenchev is a rookie with potential only. Good for perhaps next year, more likely the year after. He might develop into a good Dman or might not. That's the risk a team takes in attaining a young player.
1st would likely be a 28th or so pick in a weaker draft year, so of little value in the trade as Montreal looks good enough to make it to the East finals this year.

Basis of this trade is that Sergenchev will develop into a good dman, and RNH stays put as he has a lot of term left on his contract.
In actuality, Habs should put something else in for the Petry favor. but we won't hold our breath on that one.

Agree with HCF. Don't see RNH being dealt anyways. Especially for the peanuts offered in the original proposal.

02 Dec 2016 20:43:56
I believe that RNH is a good player but a perimeter player and too soft.

03 Dec 2016 09:01:57
The opportunity for Chia to pick up a Dman in the draft might just be too much for him not to make this call. He doesn't care what he gives up in offense. He gave up 80 for Larson. 34 pts is trivial to him. Might even get a better dman in this draft.

They are still rolling on the floor, laughing, in NJ. I hope they send Pete some xmas cards.

02 Dec 2016 10:07:20
To Mon:RNH
To Edm:Carr, juulson, 2nd

To Mon: Brodie
To Cal: 2nd, 3rd.

02 Dec 2016 10:30:42
Might as well throw McDavid and Gaudreau in there as well.

02 Dec 2016 12:57:34
Do you even watch hockey?

02 Dec 2016 19:00:38
He must watch SOME hockey if he knows who Kapanen, Rychel, and Zacha are, but I can almost guarantee he doesn't watch much.

03 Dec 2016 09:10:08
RNH sucked last year on the DEAD LAST + 1pt team. But even that is a low return for him.

Carr isn't an NHL'r, Juulson has bust potential, and a low 2nd?

Throw in a pointless defenceman and Chia will go for it.

Calgary is not giving up Brodie for a low 2nd and a low 3rd.

03 Dec 2016 15:15:22
LET be honest after the lost in San Jose, Pleckanec, Deshairnes, Gally Byron, and even shaw, get push around but pleck/ and dd really got pushed around on face off, we need to get big and faster, trade our 1st round pick, plus Nathan Beaulieu, and a salary ( T. P. OR D. D. ) for, Nathan Mckinnon, and then make the Martin Hanzel.

02 Dec 2016 02:47:59
montreal: Juulsen, Scherbak, mccarron, beaulieu,1st
arizona: duclaire, stone, 6th, 7th.

02 Dec 2016 05:37:34
Habs pass big time.

02 Dec 2016 01:23:21
Mtl : Galchenyuk

Arizona: Domi, Duclair

Mtl:Gallagher, Patches,2rd pick

Cal:Sam Bennett, Hamilton

Col: Duschene,

Mtl:Noah Julsen,1rd pick 2017,2rd pick 2017,Phillipe Danault, Charlie Lindgreen.

02 Dec 2016 05:40:58
Habs pass on 1st two trades, consider 3rd one.

02 Dec 2016 06:43:23
Colt passes on the 3rd one.

02 Dec 2016 12:59:41
Galchenyuk doesn't get you both Domi and Duclair, even with the latter's down season so far.

And no from the Avs on the last one.

02 Dec 2016 15:01:20
No in all cases from anyone not called habs. Flames want to get better offense but not trade 2 young core pieces for older less skilled ones. The 2nd rounder doesn't come close to closing the gap.

02 Dec 2016 16:01:04
Galy? Really? Don't see him moving for almost anything.

I think there's a base to start a deal with Calgary, but Calgary should add a little.

Colorado might just bite on the deal if their out of the race and want to start a bit of a re-build.

Q? of the day though.
Habs are first place with the current roster, why would they pull a major trade right now when what they have is working fine?

01 Dec 2016 23:48:32
Was:Marcus Johanson

Mtl:Charlie Lindgreen.

02 Dec 2016 13:00:51
Johanson is worth more than a potential starter right now, especially when Holtby is still young.

01 Dec 2016 20:59:43
Coyotes want a center for Duclair? . Sure no problem:

Mtl:Micaron,2rd pick2016,2rd pick2017


01 Dec 2016 21:24:46
thats like saying

Carolina needs a strong center

Mtl: Galchenyuk
Car: Stempniak 2nd 2nd

like what the hell man. everyones even saying that the yotes value Duclair highly. A big guy whod probably never make it beyond being a shutdown third/ fourth line center, and two seconds isn't enough.

01 Dec 2016 21:40:20
2nd 2016. Lol. That draft has already happened bro.

02 Dec 2016 00:43:22
Is this now a Montreal trade website or is it still the entire league because idk now.

02 Dec 2016 02:16:41
What about Duclair + for RNH? Helps Oilers right side. And helps coyotes center

02 Dec 2016 02:46:19
change both those 2nds ro firsts, and add scherbak and juulsen and you might be close.

02 Dec 2016 02:58:31
That's definitely not the same TopShelf. I think the proposal could have been a lot worse. Somewhat similiar to the Hamilton return.

02 Dec 2016 05:43:19
Duclair is a one year wonder, he's on pace for 3 goals, Habs pass.

02 Dec 2016 15:18:10
How is that close to the Hamilton return? And which Hamilton return? One that people on here are suggesting to get him out of Calgary? Or the one that actually got him out of Boston? That one was a mid first and 2 seconds. But that first was one that Boston could go any direction they wanted to go with. Not a big, slow centre that will most likely be a winger if he ever makes the NHL that was drafted 3 and a half years ago and is on pace for a second 35 point AHL season. Also before the Hamilton trade, he had taken over Chara as the #1 option on the PP point due to injuries and was the most played D on the Bruins for most of the second half of the season. Big RHD is most sought after thing in the league. Big difference from a good winger with a few hot months.

01 Dec 2016 20:55:13
Coyotes: Duclair, Stone

Mtl:Shaw, Beaulieu,2rd pick.

01 Dec 2016 21:41:02
WOW these brutal Montreal trades are annoying.

01 Dec 2016 22:03:58
Seems like that's all there is on here. silly Habs trades.

01 Dec 2016 22:55:04
Price for Smith. That's fair, right! Come on Montreal fans. Give your head a shake!

02 Dec 2016 01:25:30
Top shelf Duclair has 3 points this season while Galchenyuk has 22 points and is one of the best centers in the league . Their is no comparisim to be made here Bud.

02 Dec 2016 05:47:05
Beaulieu > Stoner.
