I'll let you guys do the explanation but in my head it makes sense lol

22 May 2017 16:23:26
Why would we do the explanation.

22 May 2017 20:13:13
Makes no sense. Lindholm is coming along nicely. Gally is not. Would argue gally having less value then him.

22 May 2017 17:57:00
No from Montreal.

22 May 2017 20:04:53
Easy to explain.
Montreal robs Carolina.

22 May 2017 21:40:48
No from Montreal.

20 May 2017 20:47:05

Edm: Puljarvi, RNH

Mtl takes a chance on a bust in Puljarvi and gets a third line center who is way overpaid

20 May 2017 21:11:04
this is the funniest thing ever.


20 May 2017 21:33:32
MTL: Sergachev, Pacioretty

EDM: Desharnais

Edmonton takes a chance on a bust in Sergachev and gets a 3rd line winger who is way overpaid.

21 May 2017 00:29:33
You're a joke. Lol
Entertaining tho, I guess.
I wonder if you ever feel embarrassed for yourself.

21 May 2017 00:35:19
Edmonton adds, maybe their entire team.

GN (or MJH, whatever you prefer), please post some sensible content again. You used to post decent trades, maybe not always fair, but they were decent. This bull**** needs to stop. It's not funny, its just irritating. I wish you'd understand that. Your not making anyone laugh by posting a troll trade x5748390. You just ain't. So please, start making some decent posts which [I hope] you are capable of, and sure, maybe post a troll once in a while to make the site laugh. But the level of stupidity which you post at right now is utterly riduclous.

21 May 2017 01:11:28
This trade purposal is a disaster.

21 May 2017 09:25:57
Lol @shankar.

21 May 2017 09:44:06
How could you call Pulj a bust he's not even 20 I'd love him on the leafs.

20 May 2017 03:09:29
Mtl:Chuck, Patches, Beaulieu,2 Rd pick 2017

Min:Granlund, Haula, Dumba

20 May 2017 16:19:50
Isn't MTL trying to score MORE? Not less.

20 May 2017 16:32:39
Taking Patches and Chucky out is basically 60 some goals a year being gone. so i'd say no from Habs, I like Granlund but he won't be able to replace that much offense. I know Pacioretty had a bad playoff, but I don't want to see him go.

20 May 2017 20:15:51
Absolutely not from mm just cause you Canadians over rate everyone does not mean the states do.

20 May 2017 20:58:29

Oh yes, a 6'2 213lbs veteran forward that is still young and scores 60 points a season with crappy non-scoring linemates is over-rated.

And a 30 goal scorer is also, extremely over-rated at only 23 years old.

And obviously, a guy who had one good season is more valuable then all of these guys combined.

** disregard my previous reply.

20 May 2017 01:02:46

Arizona: Storme, Duclair

20 May 2017 04:55:05
No from Arizona imo.

20 May 2017 16:37:06
Arizona would want more than that. however i'm not even sure what Galchenyuks value even is. he's jus completed his 5th season., so can we even fo on potential at this point? Trading him is so risky. is he a 20 goal 50 point guy? Or can he be a 30+goal, 70+ point guy. I have no clue anymore what he is.

19 May 2017 01:34:07
MTL gm willing to part galchenyuk and beaulieu and MIN gm would let niederreiter go according to THN ans TSN 690 so I came up with this trade . Obviously some work would need to be done to even up the trades but let me know what you think about it
MTL: Niederreiter + Dumba + Tuch

MIN: Galchenyuk + beaulieu + sherbak

19 May 2017 04:18:53
Nino = Galchenyuk

Dumba > Beaulieu

Tuch = Sherbak.

19 May 2017 05:39:45
montreal adds at least a 1st.

19 May 2017 10:34:42
Uhh is this Finest?
Nino >= Chuck
Dumba >> Beaulieu
Tuch >= Scherbak.

19 May 2017 14:11:55
I like it for MTL but it doesn't solve the #1 center problem we have .

20 May 2017 20:22:32
Add weber.

17 May 2017 19:22:26
Habs trade


To Philly for


17 May 2017 20:11:14
That's a funny typo.

17 May 2017 21:01:15
Flyers prob add the 2nd overall too.

17 May 2017 21:13:23
Is a funny typo, the actual proposal is more funny

Giroux > Patches
Simmonds >> Chunky
Beaulieu does NOT make up much a difference.

17 May 2017 22:10:23
I lold.

18 May 2017 01:48:50
Lol just noticed that one now guys, Chunky, Habs new prospect. Lol, he's a good one.

18 May 2017 03:48:41
Lol, Chunky is the next big habs prospect, he's the real deal.

17 May 2017 18:18:40
Montreal nneds a shake up




17 May 2017 22:11:10
I'd say makes no sense for Arizona (as honestly it really doesn't) but atleast Montreal is sending over younger players too. But still a no.

18 May 2017 02:44:08
Lol Mcjesus if you really think Arizona says no you know less then I fought.

16 May 2017 18:37:51

Flo:Bjustad,Marches Sault,2 Rd pick 2018

17 May 2017 02:56:45
I don't think there's a lot of galchenyuk believers around the league anymore. Marchessault was a 30 goal man this year. Might be a break out season or a one hit wonder but I'm sure Florida wants to find that out in a panthers jersey, not someone else's. Bjugstad is a huge centre with some offense, great for a third line. Unfortunately galchenyuk hasn't proved he's anything more than a second liner, and maybe even only a winger. Not getting those 2 players plus a pick. Not a chance right now.

15 May 2017 12:05:27


Both players just had a rough season but have potential to bounce back.they are around the same age, and this fits the needs because mtl needs a center and Flo needs a winger to play with Huberdeau

15 May 2017 15:17:06
See this is better. Finally. Actually makes sense.

14 May 2017 12:26:11
Buffalo has 3 really good centers:Eichel, Reinhart and Orielly.Imo they need to get scoring winger with grit to play on the top lines with those centers.So why not sacrifice Orielly who is the oldest of the centers in that team for a really good package of wingers from a team who is desperate for a real number one center.So:

Mtl:Gallagher, Lekonen, 2 Rd pick 2017

Buffalo: O'Reilly

Mtl gets their number one center Buffalo gets one winger who is comparable to Marchand to play with Eichel and one guy who just had a really good rookie season and would get around 60 points play with a star like Eichel or Reinhart in the future.

14 May 2017 14:30:53
Reinhart is not a centre in the NHL. He is a winger at best. Buffalo giving up their best defensive centre for pretty much only Gallagher is idiotic!

14 May 2017 14:31:10
Galleger is not a scoring winger tho. Make it chuck or Patchs then maybe would save some cap space maybe add a 1st from Montreal too.

14 May 2017 15:44:40
Wasn't O'Reilly contract loaded with a huge up front signing bonus? i'm not actually sure on that. but if that's the case, wouldn't it be stupid to trade him? I might be way off on this. but for some reason I thought it was a front loaded contract with a good cap friendly contract?

14 May 2017 16:34:47
It's like a 7.8 mil cap hit or something like that Sosa.

14 May 2017 19:26:14
This is so bad for buffalo. O Rielly is a great player and that return for him is brutal. Without him, eichel would have no help because reinhart does not bring to the team what O Rielly does.

13 May 2017 20:41:45
Mtl: Chuck,Beaulieu

Cal: Bennet, Kylington

13 May 2017 22:00:25
I want to see how Kylington is going to turn out. He seems like he's very highly valued by the guy who coached him. And I think bennetts going to turn into a beast, not as good as drasaitl but still pretty good.

13 May 2017 16:02:50
Edm:Draisalt, Jones

Columbus :Werenski,3 Rd pick


Mtl:Julsen,2 Rd pick2017

13 May 2017 18:33:16
Werenski ain't going anywhere, he's the type of defenceman you get and you never let go, I don't whos coming coming back, unless its crosby, matthews, mcdavid, eichel or kucherov and tarasenko. could probably name a few others but columbus have a gem in werenski.

13 May 2017 19:01:29
Huge no from Columbus.

13 May 2017 19:18:13
Why would Edmonton trade Draisaitl?
And our defence is fine. No need to give up really valuable assets.

13 May 2017 20:03:22
No from Edmonton. Another left handed D? And yeah let's split up the future 1-2 punch oil have for years to come.

13 May 2017 20:05:38
Hell no from cbj.

13 May 2017 20:14:41
It's so happy to see people say nice things about columbus.

13 May 2017 21:39:29
Both teams say no.

13 May 2017 14:56:49

Mtl:1 Rd pick 2017,Julsen, Sherback

A right handed defensemen that is going to be a solid top 4 defensemen. MTL has Weber and Petry so we are set on the right side for a couple of years.The first round pick is unproven in a weak draft year buy Sherback is going to be a solid top 6 winger so the value is their. Edm gets a really good package considering the down year of RNH.With ghis trade they keep Eberle because his value is so low rn that they give him a chance to get a good 60 point season and make him play with McDavid the maybe trade him next year.Mtl then trades Plekanec and his 6 million to Vegas for this year second rounder.Plekanec only has one year left and then he's done so they use his presence for this year as a solid third liner then let him go next summer. This makes sense for both teams.And FT4A your opinion is unwanted

13 May 2017 15:05:44
Hard to say he'd be a "solid top 4 d man" when he hasn't even cracked the nhl roster.

13 May 2017 16:07:02
Its not to bad Goldie. however, its a big peice of the future. I like Juulsen, i'd like to keep him. i'm wondering if a deal for RNH centered around Shaw could work? Shaw, and a first.? . I dunno. I like RNH, so it would be great to get him. jus not sure i'd wanna give 3 first rounders for him, as Habs prospect pool is weak.

13 May 2017 20:05:32
Agree with Sosa, habs will have no prospects if they make this trade. But also no from Edmonton as if Nuge is getting traded a bonafided RHD top 4 guy will be coming back or I can't see Edmonton making it.

14 May 2017 16:44:44
As an oiler fan. I would take a chance on that one.

17 May 2017 14:26:30
I like RNH, great addition to the habs. I'd get rid of chunky and Beaulieu for him and hopefully Vegas picks Plekanec to free up 6 million so habs can add some more scoring.

11 May 2017 21:54:23
Hey ppl, I am new to this site, kinda got bored of HF Boards tbh. But I'm gunna attempt to make my first trade post/discussion.

Montreal Canadiens send C Alex Galchenyuk to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for Brandon Sutter, Jake Virtanen & a 2nd.

11 May 2017 23:57:06
Welcome to this site for one. Be prepared for some of let's just say anything. (Note: Never make a Parayko trade Lol)

As for this trade you posted,

Montreal may trade Galchenyuk but I don't think Sutter who is not an upgrade on Galchenyuk will be something Montreal would want. Also Virtanen is heading towards bust territory so not a lot of value. The 2nd doesn't really make up for that. So I don't see this happening as needs for Montreal aren't met. They don't get the added scoring, grit or LH Dman to play with Weber, then they probably aren't interested. Canucks on the other hand would be interested in Galchenyuk but probably doesn't have the pieces that they are willing to give up. Maybe someone else can help in this regard.

12 May 2017 00:14:30
I think Habs are going to want someone with more offense than what Sutter brings. I personally like Virtanen, however he's really struggled and I don't know if his value is that high. For Virtanen i'd counter with Hudon.
Im going to get bashed for that. lol.

12 May 2017 00:46:29
Doesn't make any sense for Vancouver tbh.

12 May 2017 03:40:40
I'll take it and run.

11 May 2017 12:28:16


11 May 2017 13:16:48
Minnesota adds.

11 May 2017 15:34:40
that's debatable, chucky proved he is not a number one center and is an RFA, Coyle is a stud and under a super great contract for 3 more years. Point production is very similar and chucky will somehow get 5 mil a season.

12 May 2017 13:07:44
I think that Minnesota adds, simply because Galchenyuk is 2 years younger and has a higher ceiling.

10 May 2017 05:54:42
Do these trades work value wise?

CBJ: Savard
MTL: Beaulieu, the caps next two seconds (who they used to get Eller)

MTL: Petry
Komarov: 3rd, 6th

BUF: Eichel
MTL: Chucky, Juulsen, 2nd.

10 May 2017 05:59:24
No from Columbus.
Komarov is a team? Lol. So no
Easy no from buffalo.

10 May 2017 06:34:22
I would take the columbus trade with the youth growing on D and we wouldn't have to protect Savard in the expansion.

10 May 2017 07:00:46
didn't montreal trade one of the 2nds to chicago in the shaw deal?

10 May 2017 12:41:56
They did Kaner.

09 May 2017 18:29:43
MON: 1st Round Pick 2018, Bealieu
NJ: Kovalchuk

08 May 2017 03:54:31
Fun rumour ''facts''. Take these with a grain of salt.

The Vancouver Canucks were set to acquire Wayne Gretzky from Edmonton for 5 1st round picks and $2 million dollars but the Canucks organization pissed Wayne Gretzky and the Oilers GM.

The New York Islanders offered ALL of their picks in the 2012 draft for the 2nd overall pick in 2012 owned by the Islanders but they rejected it and took Ryan Murray.

The Flyers offered a 2015 1st rounder, Samuel Morin and a ''significant'' roster player not named ''Claud Giroux'' for PK Subban when he was in an ugly contract arbitration but the Canadiens opted to spend big on Subban.

None of these are mine. I was scrolling through twitter and found these.

08 May 2017 04:56:35
"The New York Islanders offered ALL of their picks in the 2012 draft for the 2nd overall pick in 2012 owned by the Islanders but they rejected it and took Ryan Murray. "

uhhh don't you mean owned by the columbus blue jackets.

08 May 2017 05:04:05
I also heard Gretzky was going to sign with Canucks after the STL experiment , and that a deal was in place but whoever wanted the deal signed immediately and apparently woke Gretzky up bothering him about it. so he got pissed and signed the NYR deal. dunno if its true or not.

08 May 2017 05:05:02
Saw that ig post. I think the Islanders one is fake, the Islanders had 4th Overall that year, I doubt they were so high on Murray that they were willing to give 6 other picks (all High in their respective rounds) just to pick him.

08 May 2017 15:30:52
FlyingV no it was the legit offer at the time, i remember hearing about that deal on draft day, i was like i'm not sure what's more stupid the offer or the rejection.

06 May 2017 03:17:29
Mtl: Petry( waive NMC)


06 May 2017 04:28:19
Lol Habs add a ton.

06 May 2017 09:06:09
Horrible for panthers.

06 May 2017 15:47:10
Trochek for Chuck? Or Petry 15% retained for Bjustad.

07 May 2017 00:17:32
trochek is solid, worth more than petry.
