25 Mar 2017 01:22:23
Mtl: 1 Rd pick 2017
25 Mar 2017 03:17:22
Honestly if NYI could have gotten 16th overall and 32nd overall from Edmonton for Griffin Reinhart I'm sure they could get this.
Switching Strome back to center might be a good move.
25 Mar 2017 21:45:05
Lol so Strome is worth a 1st round but Eberle isn't? Ok.
26 Mar 2017 04:40:55
Eberle makes $6million a year which is why his value is so low.
21 Mar 2017 22:37:53
Nathan Beaulieu, 2nd round pick, Daniel Audette
Montreal gets a top 4 lhd, while LA gets someone cheaper and younger, and pick, and potential 3rd line centre.
22 Mar 2017 00:01:09
No way from tl. Beaulieu alone is still a no.
22 Mar 2017 04:23:51
No from LA what the heck? 😂😂 Marty has 4 more years at 4 million dollars! He's a steal of a contract (can't say that about a lot of Kings), great puck mover, nice shot, no way we move him for beaulieu and a potential 3rd liner.
22 Mar 2017 11:12:28
Martinez isn't that good and Beaulieu is only 24 and is playing good. The guy either plays really good or really crapy. But once he gets that balance his play is going to get better and his playing good with Jamie B the newbie. Martinez is good but Beaulieu has the potential to be better.
22 Mar 2017 11:21:30
I think LA would take this deal honestly. They need to get younger and recoup draft picks, because they've basically emptied the farm over the last 5 years. Face it, Kempe being the best prospect is not a good thing at all.
22 Mar 2017 17:01:01
Lol Martinez is a solid top 4 Dman on just about any team. He would surely fetch more then this.
13 Mar 2017 21:46:04
H. Shinkaruk + 6th 2017 for MTL 2nd 2017
Shinkaruk doesn't really have a chance in Calgary and is still young. The pick is in a weak draft so MTL can afford to give it up. Calgary has the chance to draft someone that could fill a need.
13 Mar 2017 22:39:50
Shinkaruk is not an NHL player. He a good AHL player and that's his limit. I know you guys love to make fun of Benning but he's a great judge of talent. Unlike most of the people on this site. Tell me again how great McCann and Shinkaruk are!
14 Mar 2017 02:59:31
Montreal would want Shinkaruk why? This guy got traded by one of worst teams in league because he was never go to make their lineup. Benning milked Flames got themselves a 20 goal scorer for a career minor-leaguer.
14 Mar 2017 05:29:43
If Benning is such a great judge of talent, why did he draft mccann in the first place?
Yes, I know all the blame/ praise of drafting a player shouldn't go on the GM, but neither should it all go an a GM for making a good/ bad trade, as you seem to be suggesting.
14 Mar 2017 12:26:52
That's not what i suggest. I'm just saying he made astute trades. When players were at the peak of their value. People here in Vancouver like to rip on Benning for everything. I just feel the team was not good when he took the job of GM. He was also given an impossible task of making the playoffs with declining talent.
14 Mar 2017 14:32:03
Honestly I'd do it from mtl because Shinkaruk actully has some upside and probably better then anybody mtl would draft with that pick. And because the chances are that the pick would play in the nhl before Shinkaruk does is really low.
11 Mar 2017 19:41:59
Just showing his value.Even then it's not enough for a superstar like Tkachuk
11 Mar 2017 20:00:29
I think we've all moved on. Why haven't you?
11 Mar 2017 20:24:45
Not this again
Yes. Tkachuk is a really good young player, that is going to have a good long career. however, with the Habs in a win now mode, ( although they aren't gonna) . Weber and Patches have more value to the Habs than Tkachuk does. if this was an expansion team and ya wanted one of the 3. If take Tkachuk based on age and the fact he is a good player already with a lot of potential to be a top guy in the league.
Youve also posted a few times that you'd take him over McDavid. what's your thing with Tkachuk?
11 Mar 2017 21:08:08
I haven't moved on because Tkachuk is the best player jn the league and people should at least admit it.
11 Mar 2017 21:47:10
SmcJesus, you are seriously smoking something if you think that is his value. Give it up.
11 Mar 2017 21:54:40
Like are you that bored you literally had to make a big deal over nothing and make this stupid post to make people mad. You're better than that.
12 Mar 2017 00:47:52
13 Mar 2017 14:22:38
I absolutely love chucky, but to be fair I think he'll be a really solid 2nd line guy or a decent top line forward at best. Who knows though, I hope he proves me wrong and does really well.
11 Mar 2017 18:17:24
Montreal trades Plekanec to Anaheim for Bieksa.
11 Mar 2017 19:19:45
That's all the Habs need. another bottom pairing dman.
12 Mar 2017 00:52:45
Jesus. You're an insult to Elliot Friedman himself. I bet he would puke in his mouth at what you're writing. Lol.
15 Mar 2017 11:47:57
11 Mar 2017 02:41:00
Mtl:Micaron, 1rd pick 2017
11 Mar 2017 04:06:48
Do you hate your team?
11 Mar 2017 13:49:43
Dvorak, I believe will be the Better player, more impactful. But if the habs weren't willing to mortgage the future to get duchene, then giving up a first to upgrade mccarron to Dvorak just seems wrong.
08 Mar 2017 20:00:05
Toronto is look for more Defence and Montreal is still looking for a top 6 winger for next year.
Would Davidson, Nesterov and a 2nd 2018 be able to get JVR?
This site has been dead since the deadline... just thought i'd put something up to generate some posts.
08 Mar 2017 20:27:58
Those are just spare parts for JVR, so how do they help in any meaningful way?
08 Mar 2017 20:48:54
Toronto would probs expect a first round and a dman.
08 Mar 2017 22:12:11
Need Beaulieu + 1st, at least to touch JVR. Plus, it's probably going to be more expensive going Toronto to Montreal.
08 Mar 2017 23:21:24
This is a joke right?
08 Mar 2017 22:45:17
Montreal starts with a 1st then adds from there.
09 Mar 2017 16:36:59
Wouldn't trade Beaulieu straight up for JVR. Maybe Beaulieu for Nylander BERGEVIN might consider.
09 Mar 2017 17:44:32
Mtl doesn't want JVR.
06 Mar 2017 15:06:49
dallas : oleksiak.
06 Mar 2017 15:32:04
Why from Mtl? Oleksiak isn't that good.
06 Mar 2017 16:40:59
Id rather keep Beaulieu. I think now with Jordie Benn being his partner, this could really help Beaulieu. he hasn't had a steady partner all year.
05 Mar 2017 21:23:03
This trade will never happen but if the canucks destroy their team...
-Henrik Sedin (50% retained)
-MTL 1st round pick 2018
The canucks can only retain one salary next year due to the hansen trade. Tomas plekanec is just there for cap reasons and probably doesn't have much value.
05 Mar 2017 23:43:31
He'll no from mtl. Gallagher alone is worth the sedins and even then it's a no because of their contracts and age. A first is just ridiculous.
05 Mar 2017 23:52:38
Well I don't see any reason why canucks do that. At all.
06 Mar 2017 00:22:43
I wouldn't do it as a Habs fan. and i'm pretty sure Canucks fans will say the same.
06 Mar 2017 01:35:46
Another year at 10.5 million for two guys that'll get Montreal goals isn't bad. I think it's far fetched and this might not be the perfect trade but I think it's a good fit.
06 Mar 2017 16:58:44
If a hab fan says no to this they are crazy.
06 Mar 2017 21:16:59
Not bad but Vancouver doesn't want or need or want Plekanec but what's his contract like? If he had 1 year left we could move him at deadline or something, I'd probably pull the trigger from Vancouver pending on if we could move Plekanec for sure. Loved Gallagher on the Giants and would love for him to be in the Nucks.
07 Mar 2017 03:20:44
Plekanec has one year on his deal and he is only there for cap reasons so mtl can take his contract.
03 Mar 2017 19:02:57
Summer Trade .
Vegas: plekanec and 3rd pic (2nd if need)
MTl : Vegas have to take plekanec on the expansion draft
03 Mar 2017 20:11:58
I can't wait for the expansion draft to happen. It will be pretty interesting. I've been wondering things like this, Like if Edm could give them a 4th round pick or something to TAKE Pouliot. Same thing you're proposing.
03 Mar 2017 21:55:52
I bet Las Vegas asks for a 2nd to take on bad contracts.
But another thing to remember is they need to meet cap requirements as well.
03 Mar 2017 22:19:18
Hahaha I know vegas has to spend the minimum for the cap but they aren't going to take this bum, esp at 6 m!
03 Mar 2017 22:22:27
Ya. That would be awesome! . If we could shed Plekanec. however, doesn't it sound a little . i dunno. shady. if its ok. i'm all for it.
04 Mar 2017 00:14:34
I bet Edmonton would give you a decent young D for him.
04 Mar 2017 01:04:02
I read an idea that they could take 6-8 goalies and the. Control the goalie market in the off season and have bidding wars, thus gaining more assets. Lol
Now that would be shady, but kinda genius. And hey, having veteran guys like Plekanec and Pouliot on a brand new team wouldn't be a terrible thing. Especially when they help get to the cap floor big time. Haha.
Either way, This expansion draft will be super interesting!
04 Mar 2017 04:15:15
It's honestly kinda smart in a sense to take a veteran with lots of experience on a new team. Yeah they have some cap but it's s brand new team and their term isn't too long.
05 Mar 2017 01:55:19
You can't get anything for a goalie. Look what Bishop got. You can say Steve Y sold low. But at least he moved a goalie. Teams will just over spend on a UFA goalie. Controling a goalie market is dumb because there is no market.
05 Mar 2017 20:52:16
I'd imagine almost zero chance players with NMC would waive to go to Vegas (I'm assuming a guy like Plekanec for example does), I just can't see most NHL players wanting to go live and play there.
06 Mar 2017 09:30:30
Pleky doesn't have a NMC nor a NTC.
06 Mar 2017 21:31:29
For plekanec there is 3 option :
Bergevin trade him to any team for probably nothing during off season
Bergevin trade him to vegas with a 3rd or 2nd round to get his 6M salary out of Mtl cap space
Plekanec get buy-out.
07 Mar 2017 02:03:37
You forgot one option the one that's actully going to happen. Pleky doesn't move and we wait till his contract end at the end of the season.
01 Mar 2017 17:31:32
Dwight King to the habs for a 4th
01 Mar 2017 17:50:41
Montreal is making a lot of questionable trades imo.
01 Mar 2017 17:56:58
the return of thunder turkey.
01 Mar 2017 18:31:13
I agree with McJesus. I dunno what direction this is going. very confused atm.
01 Mar 2017 18:42:04
Montreal is making moves to get bigger. They gained cap space by getting rid of a small centre, gained def insurance and added size up front. Pretty good moves actually.
01 Mar 2017 18:57:05
I'm with MCJ on this one. they really are not getting what they actually need. There is still 1 hour for a good move and apparently they are still very active right now.
01 Mar 2017 21:20:20
I was just thinking about this, Do you guys think Julien had much a day and wanted to get bigger more physical? Coming from Boston always known to be the "big bad Bruins". Maybe he had a say?
01 Mar 2017 21:42:45
They look bigger and a little more ready for playoffs. A lot of big game experience in King and ott but still lack the centre. When it comes to playoffs, match ups down the middle can break a series. Danault and galchenyuk will get dominated against almost any other playoff teams top 2 centres. Most teams ready to make noise like the habs seem to think they are have 2 centres better than the habs best. After you make such a bold move like trading subban to make sure your team has the best chance to win in the next 3-4 years, they should have just paid the big price and got duchene or another real top centre.
01 Mar 2017 21:44:20
They're making moves like they're the Penguins, adding role players and grit and a penalty killer and a 6th dman as hear final pieces, it's like bergevin forgot pens have malkin and Crosby. They're not in that class at all.
02 Mar 2017 00:18:39
I agree with you guys and I wonder if they made a push for that top 2 guy and came up short after addressing their lack of size and grit?
02 Mar 2017 00:59:47
Honestly think the Habs answers to a cup doesn't have Duchene in the picture. but the Islanders hold the answer. Lol. somehow the Habs need to try and get Tavares outta Brooklyn. But i don't even know where to begin with that deal.
Anyway, wishful thinking.
Im glad they didn't overspend on Duchene today. I don't see him as the peice that puts them over.
06 Mar 2017 09:32:40
Habs trade Price to Leafs for Marner.
01 Mar 2017 16:58:47
habs : juulsen, galchenyuk, mcniven first round 2017
avs: landeskog and grigorenko.
01 Mar 2017 15:47:07
Montreal: Alexei Emelin
Winnipeg: Mathieu Perreault
Montreal: Brandon Davidson, 2nd
Tampa Bay: Valteri Fillpula
01 Mar 2017 16:06:31
Let's do both.
01 Mar 2017 16:13:35
Davidson hasn't even landed in Montreal yet and he's already a part of a trade rumor.
01 Mar 2017 16:17:21
Not sure fillpula would accept a trade to Montreal if he already declined to go to Toronto.
01 Mar 2017 16:25:27
I'll fly over to America and carry Filppula all the way up to CAN for that.
02 Mar 2017 16:21:25
No from mtl their chemistry is great right now and their no need to ruin that by trading a top tier defensemen for a overpaid center. If you want Davidson start with Stamkos- FairT4all mtl version lol.
01 Mar 2017 14:52:10
habs : juulsen, galcheyuk, emelin 2nd round2017
buffalo: ryan o'reilly, kulikov.
01 Mar 2017 15:57:22
Are you serious?
01 Mar 2017 20:16:41
Lol no from Sabres.
01 Mar 2017 13:45:01
Jets : Scheifele, Logan Stanley
MTL : PLekanec,1rst, 2nd round, beaulieu, Juulsen
01 Mar 2017 14:35:20
Jets add maybe Laine?
01 Mar 2017 14:51:55
LOL. Is this a joke?
01 Mar 2017 15:07:44
That's hilarious gab good joke.
01 Mar 2017 15:14:06
Any rumor starting with Plekanic is always funny.
03 Mar 2017 19:07:09
Okay this was my dream that will never come true, seriously what do you think habs can offer to get Scheifele in MTL and get plekanec out.
You can't trade : Price or Pacioretty or weber.
01 Mar 2017 09:01:28
11 hours until trade deadline
MTL: Beaulieu, Juulsen, 1st, 2nd (highest second that they have) and a 2018 4th
This fits what Sakic wants (top 4 dman, 1st, D prospect) . Habs send Juulsen instead of Sergachev and compensate for this with the high 2nd and 4th. IMO it works and makes Montreal so much better. I see Duchene playing 2nd line with Galchenyuk, either as LW or C.
Pacioretty - Danault - Radulov
Duchene - Galchenyuk - Gallagher
Bottom 6 fills itself out.
Emelin - Weber
Markov - Petry
Davidson - Benn
IMO it works perfectly until end of next season, then MTL runs into cap issues.
01 Mar 2017 12:17:51
Not enough for Duchene. Its Sergachev + or bust.
01 Mar 2017 13:26:35
If that's the best offer they receive for duchene, they'll wait till the offseason.
01 Mar 2017 13:35:28
Yeah. I'd be really shocked if sergachev doesn't have to be included. Also when a team gives up that much for a guy that is easily the best centre on the team, why is he second line?! Lol only way a team trades that much and he's a second liner is like on the island where him and Tavares would be a one-two punch, or penguins where they have Crosby and malkin and he would slot in as a winger for one of them (still probably first line with Sid) but he's not stuck behind danault.
01 Mar 2017 15:09:52
Colorado isn't in a hurry to trade Duchene. Like sakic is crazy for even wanting to trade him in the first place, and he's not going to trade him until he gets what he wants. A 2nd and a 4th does not compensate anything. Exactly what Hoff said. Sergachev needs to be included or you're not getting Duchene.
01 Mar 2017 03:49:57
01 Mar 2017 04:23:27
Obvious no from habs.
01 Mar 2017 14:01:05
Why is there believables on this? and what have people disagreed with mcj? lol top 4 D for a top 9 forward. Anyday that's a no, but in today's market especially it's a huge hell no.
01 Mar 2017 03:20:57
WPG: Stanford, Perrault
MTL: 1st Round Pick 2017
01 Mar 2017 06:25:16
Montreal has lots of RW. (Radulov, Gallagher, Shaw) They are in need of a 2nd line Center. I'm thinking the move today to send DD to Edmonton will free up some cap for them to do that.
01 Mar 2017 01:33:56
I think EDM could have got better return? but i'm not sure. seems like a good trade for Mtl.
01 Mar 2017 03:51:06
Mtl deff won this trade making cap room for another trade (duchene)?
01 Mar 2017 04:05:37
oilers got hosed. i thought davidson was a legit prospect? guess not with that return.
01 Mar 2017 04:24:17
Ya Oilers definitely could have got a better package but oh well. Not as bad as it looks but definitely lost the trade.
01 Mar 2017 04:27:19
Way I see it is Oil got a third line center to finish the year, who also had plenty of playoff experience which is important. Creates some depth down the middle.
I don't think he's super great on the dot but I think he's around 50%. Anyways he's also UFA at the end of the year and we were losing Davidson anyhow. Better get something than nothing. But ya thought oil could get a better trade for Davy.
01 Mar 2017 07:12:18
Don't really like how Oil fans justify it by saying we woulda lost him anyway. Because instead of possibly losing Davidson we now lost Davidson and maybe Reinhart or Brossoit.
01 Mar 2017 11:16:50
Lol mtl clear cap space, got rid of a small and fringe player for a rough younger and cheaper defensemen. Yep Edmonton got robbed on that one.
01 Mar 2017 11:17:13
Mtl retain 20 percent off DD btw.
01 Mar 2017 14:05:07
Yeah. Trading someone so you don't lose him for nothing to Vegas makes sense when you hear it, but you're losing someone. the return for Davidson will be gone the same week as the expansion draft anyway. Was Davidson miles ahead of the players now exposed? If not, lost the trade today and didn't help yourself in the summer.
01 Mar 2017 15:22:18
20% cap retention by Montreal ( to appease mr owner's pocket book) is what I've read. Would have been nicer to see a pick come back.
PC seen him play in the East and liked his play which slumped this year. Not a big gamble on Edmonton's part as he is gone at the end of the season.
I do think Edm should have got more for Davidson as he's still young with term.
28 Feb 2017 18:25:20
habs : sergachev, petry galchenyuk, 2x2nd
tampa: kucherov and coburn.
28 Feb 2017 19:15:15
That's very interesting.
28 Feb 2017 20:06:14
I agree that this one is interesting but I can't see the Canadiens trading sergachev as his ceiling is so very high.
28 Feb 2017 21:18:58
As good as Kuch is that's probably an easy yes from them.
Montreal should do this because Petry and Sergachev are very important to their D and their D would suck next year.
28 Feb 2017 21:34:56
No from Habs.
Id love to have Kucherov, and he is and will be better than Galchenyuk.
Petry is underrated in my opinion, Sergachev has the potential to be the best player in this whole deal, yet will be hard to be as good as Kucherov, and Coburn is on the down swing.
So its jus to many what ifs. and a huge price to pay for Kucherov,
28 Feb 2017 21:40:16
Not only with his ceiling, but canadiens do not really have great D prospect either.
