TOR: Santorelli, Ross, 7th
NYR: conditional 2015 2nd (becomes 1st 2015 if Rangers make conference finals), 5th 2016
Anyone: 5th or 6th
DAL: Oleksiak, small+
Col: 15' 2nd', 16' 2nd
Pick top 10 and get one of Strome, Zacha or Barzal
Lines next year:
Lupul (probably on LTIR)
Van Riemsdyk (A)
28 Jan 2015 11:06:51
Richards is on waivers. Why trade for him?
Rangers don't have a 2015 first. Although that doesn't matter that's a bad deal for them and LA will never give up Pearson for scraps so don't count on that either
@seabass2011 . because Toronto does not have cap room to claim him. they would have to take salary back
Richards is still fairly serviceable and by taking on his contract(which is cheaper than Phaneuf's) we would be getting a young player in Pearson for less than fair value for doing LA a favour. Plus it somewhat fills both teams needs.
Its been said that toronto asked for pearson or toffoli in the phanuef for richards deal and that's why the whole thing fell apart
^ and when they offered Clarkson, LA asked for Gardiner lol
Col has no 2nd this year , col doesn't need an overpaid 3rd line center
^ yeah they already have. and how is Bozak overpaid?
27 Jan 2015 21:37:04
Chris Stewart & Andrej Meszaros to Boston for 2015 2nd
Drew Stafford & Torrey Mitchell to Calgary for 2015 2nd
Jhonas Enroth to Dallas for 2015 3rd
Matt Flynn & Andre Benoit to NYR for 2015 3rd
This gives Murray 9 picks in the first 3 rounds.
No reason for the Rangers to make that trade
28 Jan 2015 01:24:27
Boston had Meszaros. Dropped him. Try again.
CGY has no interest in either of those guys. They keep the 2nd and keep rebuilding with youth.
@seabass2011 actually Meszaros played very well for Boston last year, Boston had tooooo many defense-men (remember Boychuck to NYI) and no cap space. IMO they would make the trade at the deadline for Stewart and Meszaros for only a 2nd.
28 Jan 2015 11:08:45
@sbr2017 You're probably right, on second thought.
@NYRangers3016 please refer to http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/id/34063/rumblings-trade-deadline-needs-in-new-york
We don't want a 31 year old Andre Benoit, and Flynn(I'm assuming you mean Bryan) is not someone who's going to greatly improve our chances of winning
27 Jan 2015 19:46:23
3 team trade
nyr- myers, folino
Buf- etem,glass, john morre and ducks 2015 1st
Zucco for jeff petry
Ducks trade Emerson Etem & 2015 1st
Ducks get Daniel Girardi
Ranger trade Daniel Girardi, Tanner Glass & John Moore
Ranger get Tyler Myers & Marcus Foligno
Sabres trade Tyler Myers & Marcus Foligno
Sabres get John Moore, Tanner Glass, Emerson Etem & Ducks 2015 1st
26 Jan 2015 14:25:04
NYR trades Adam Tambellini to BUF for Matt Flynn & Andre Benoit
NYR get Defensive depth and a good bottom 6 forward. BUF gets a RW prospect.
No thanks adam tamb is destroying the whl goalies. He be a great player for the Rangers in a year or 2. Nyr decline
@nyr1981 what about Ryan Graves, or Dylan McIlrath. These are two of the pieces that the Rangers could use, I was looking for a "C" prospect that had a long shot chance to play.
I think Rangers mentally has changed about giving up on young players too soon so I think I would do dylen but not ryan
@nyr1981 that would probably OK with Murray IMO. That is not to give up for a depth d-man and bottom 6 forward. let's MAKE A DEAL!!!
26 Jan 2015 06:54:56
At the Trade Deadline
To S.J. : Franson
To TOR : 2nd & 3rd PK in 15, Hertl
To NYR : Santorelli
To TOR : 2nd RD PK in 15
To Van : Winnik
To Tor : 2nd RD PK in 15
To Win : Lupul
To Tor : 3rd or 4th RD PK in 15
To L.A. : Phaneuf
To Tor : Richards
The L.A.-Tor trade I see this way
1. Richards has won everything there is to win in hockey: World JR, Memorial Cup, Olympics, AHL and 2 Stanley cups! Phaneuf World Jr.
2. Richards is a leader and if the Leafs are going to rebuild who would want to show younger players what it takes to win? Not Phaneuf.
3. Reason why Richards ice time has decreased is look at L.A's roster: Kopitar, Brown, Gaborik, Carter, Willams, Stoll, ect.
4. Richards = Winner, leader, champion
26 Jan 2015 08:20:37
richards = LA's clarkson, that's about it right now.
Wow. Just wow.
Hertl alone is worth Franson and one of Santorelli and/or Winnik. You're deluded, buddy. These proposals are a joke.
Not quite. I'd rather have Richards than Clarkson. By far.
LOL Hertl and a 2nd for Franson? You've got to be kidding.
26 Jan 2015 17:05:04
Winnik = 2nd round pick??
Fransons value just keeps going up eh now he can land hertl? Lol
I have to wonder, if Hertl didn't have that 4 goal game last season that got his name on the map, would there be the same reaction to this trade proposal?
27 Jan 2015 16:58:58
i doubt there would, considering he's doing pretty much nothing this year.
22 Jan 2015 02:56:32
A couple of very small trades that return prospects to the sabres and addresses the other teams needs:
BUF trades Brian Flynn & Justin Kea to NYR for Ryan Graves
BUF trades Jhonas Enroth, Torrey Mitchell & Daniel Catenacci to DAL for Jamie Oleksiak
Who needs to add?
Not sure dal would want to trade oleksiak
21 Jan 2015 17:09:49
nyr- glass and 2nd Rd pick next year
Horrible trade for toronto why would we want a ufa they could get a better player for Kadri.
and the first is even bad the devils wouldn't want Glass and his bad contract
Kadri is jot for sale thank you but no thank yoy
14 Jan 2015 18:24:45
Vancouver: RW Nicklas Jensen, D Yannick Weber
New Jersey: D Adam Larsson
Vancouver: D Kevin Bieksa (25% retained), (+?)
Detroit: RW Tomas Jurco
Vancouver: LW Chris Higgins
Winnipeg: WIN 3rd '15
Vancouver: C Brad Richardson
New York Rangers: NYR 3rd '15
Daniel Sedin-Henrik Sedin-Radim Vrbata
Alex Burrows-Nick Bonino-Tomas Jurco
Shawn Matthias-Linden Vey-Zack Kassian
Derek Dorsett-Bo Horvat-Jannik Hansen
Dan Hamhuis-Adam Larsson
Alex Edler-Chris Tanev
Luca Sbisa-Frank Corrado
It's a good idea, but I doubt the Bieksa trade would work. And switch Shawn Matthias for Brad Richardson.
06 Jan 2015 21:19:18
TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS CHANGES
Hire Tod McLellan or Dan Bylsma
Fire Dave Nonis
Leafs need to build a bigger, grittier more defensively Minded team
Leafs - Bruins
Jake Gardiner, Daniel Winnik, 3rd
Leafs - Stars
Phil Kessel, Peter Holland, James Reimer
Jamie Benn, Antoine Roussel, 3rd
Leafs - Avalanche
Joffrey Lupul, Fredrick Gauthier, 2016 2nd
Leafs - Blues
Nazem Kadri, Morgan Rielly, 1st
Leafs - Rangers
Dion Phaneuf, Tyler Bozak, Korbinian Holzer
SIGN Michalek 2 years, 3
Next Season Lines:
JVR - - - BENN - - - NYLANDER
CLARKSON - O'RIELLY - LUCIC
ROUSSEL - SANTORELLI - KOMAROV
PANIK - SMITH - BOOTH
PIETRANGLO - - - MCDONAUGH
FRANSON - MICHALEK
POLAK - ROBIDAS
NOT HAPPENING, JUST AN IDEA 1ST POST HERE
IS THE VALUE CLOSE? DO U LIKE THE LINES?
For starters i'd rather have Benn over kessel. The rest of the trade doesn't even it out whatsoever.
Lupul, FG, and the 2nd won't get it done for O'reilly despite his struggle.
Pieterangelo and McDonough are going to cost more then that. Stud D men are incredibly hard to come by. Especially ones with great affordable contracts.
St Louis and dallas deals are "close" but others are just horrible
As soon as I saw Lucic I stopped reading this post.
Wouldn't mind having Bozak, but don't want Phaneuf. and Stepan and Brassard are playing well right now, so not sure where Bozak would fit in, and there's no way we trade Mac
Benn.is nor a centre first off
Clarkson, lucic and orielly.would be dame good to see
Pietrangelo and lucic toronto adds
How would you sign Todd McLellan when he's still behind the sharks bench.
06 Jan 2015 13:57:39
The Leafs require a major improvement of defence if not they will miss the playoffs once again two options they should explore:
Chicago will be in trouble next year with cap issues why not make an offer they can't refuse
CHI - Keith
TOR - Reilly, Nylander, 1st 2016
NYR - Stall
TOR - Fransen, 3rd 2015
Stall has no intention of signing with NY
Keith is the backbone of the Chicago defense, he is not going to be traded. Not that the package is not good, but players like Sharp will be moved before Keith is for cap relief.
Staal may not be re-signing with the Rangers, but who knows if Franson would either. Both are UFA's and if I am the Rangers a 3rd round pick is not worth swapping Staal for Franson without an extension in place first, rather make a playoff run with Staal.
Even though the hawks will be in cap trouble Keith will not be the guy they trade and the leafs aren't in a position to give up that many assets.
and Franson > Staal
Seabrook would be easier to get and it won't cost as much
Moving Rielly and Nylander and any 1st round pick is a big mistake for a team that requires big improvements.
06 Jan 2015 19:02:29
Keith (togehter with Toews) is 100% the last peace dealt from CHI, however troubling their cap situation might be.
Staal has never said he is not resigning with the Rangers. I don't know where everyone keeps hearing that from. If NYR trades Hagelin or Zuccs, or Marty retires, than we can keep staal.
06 Jan 2015 23:33:13
Patrick Sharp to Tampa Bay! Mark my words boys! After we dump Flipper and HOPEFULLY Carle which we probably will have to retain salary cap on!
07 Jan 2015 09:22:07
ltpato: good thought, but I don't think we can retain anymore salary. I think there are a max 3 RST allowed. We already used it on Gagner, Brewer and someone else. maybe Purcell? can't remember, but I think we've used all 3.
02 Jan 2015 06:55:07
Leafs - Rangers
JVR, Matt Finn for Ryan Mcdonaugh
Leafs - Blues
Phil Kessel for Alex Pietranglo
Leafs - Oilers
Dion Phaneuf, Fredrick Gauthier, James Reimer, 3rd
Leafs - Avalanche
Cody Franson, Joffrey Lupul
Leafs - Stars
Jamie Benn, antoine roussel
Morgan Rielly, Tyler Bozak, 1st
NYLANDER - - - O'RIELLY - - - HALL
ROUSSEL - KADRI - BENN
SANTORELLI - HOLLAND - KOMAROV
CLARKSON - SMITH - PANIK
MCDONAUGH - PIETRANGLO
GARDINER - POLAK
PERCY - ROBIDAS
You've literally made me cry with those trade offers xD
Ya obvious that Nylander would have a 1st line spot and Jamie Benn would be on the second.
Your kidding Right Phill Kessel for Petro. Pass what your smoking over here LOL
Stop. Just stop
That McDonagh - Pietrangelo pairing would be pretty sweet but these offers are absurd lol
JVR and Finn for Mcdonagh , he's a franchise defenseman , toronto adds a lot more.
I'm having a hard time finding the worst trade. They're all pretty bad.
If Toronto was to do this, would this be considered a roster overhaul? Lol
Dallas is probably the most likely to happen but none are going to happen whatsoever.
Wow, just wow. these trades are ridiculous
31 Dec 2014 02:50:24
The Leafs need to improve their defence this is not new news so this trade will help
TML - Fransen 2nd pick 2016
NYR - M Stall
Stall refuses to resign with the Rangers so they may be forced to do something Fransen is a UFA as well but he is having a career year but he has a hard time playing D because of this trade the Stall bros I am sure would want to follow
TML - Kadri, Gardiner, Nylander, 1st 2015
CAR - E Stall, J Stall
M Stall signs 7 y x 6M contract
& have $21 million tied up in kessel, phaneuf & staal? Leafs have cap issues, that won't help at all.
No thank you from toronto ,not giving up youth for stall brothers leafs pass
E.Staal is done
Marc Staal never said that he refuses to sign with the Rangers, Franson is also a UFA and the whole reason we need to get rid of a UFA is for cap reasons
30 Dec 2014 14:49:47
Rumors that the Rangers could be interested in Zack Kassian.
Rangers could use some size and toughness in the lineup(besides Tanner Glass, he needs to go), and Vancouver could use some speed.
2015 2nd(Tampa Bay)
Hagelin-26 years old
I don't think that 2nd belongs there.
@NHLFunFacts: You might be right, but I always seem to overvalue Rangers players in my posts so that's why I threw in the 2nd.
Remove the 7th and add a 5th
Vancouver is better off keeping Kassian , he's big and strong , and he might turn out to be a decent power forward.
29 Dec 2014 21:56:03
if stall signs with colorado
I think it's better than TML are offering
with that move nyr can try to move derik brassard and we will have a lots of money to sign Stepan
30 Dec 2014 08:01:11
doubt COL does that. also, why do you want brassard traded, just looking at his numbers he seems to be having an excellent season?
29 Dec 2014 00:49:21
EDM: McDonagh, Brassard, Duclair
NYR: Hall, Draisaitl, Marincin, 2016 1st round pick, 2nd 2017, 5th, 2017
29 Dec 2014 11:09:46
Hall and maybe the 2nd alone could get that.
give me a break hall and a 2nd would not get you that.
The rangers wouldn't trade this for Hall alone Drais. Pretty sure.
29 Dec 2014 17:03:57
hall and a 2nd don't even = mcdonagh, soory.
Is is honestly so bad for Edmonton. Massive overpayment
Mcdonagh for Hall would be a fair trade.
26 Dec 2014 18:35:02
Lots of Van rumors going around. I'd like to propose some moves they should make to get younger.
to Pitt: Vrbata and Lack
to Van: Beau Bennett and Simon Depres
to NYR: Bieksa and Burrows
to Van: Kreider and Brady Skjei (prospect)
to Det: Higgins and Hansen
to Van: Tatar
Neither of those are happening
Vrbata has been great, shouldn't move him.
Rangers trade is decent I guess
But there is no way you get one of Detroit's best young players for that package.
Not even close for the DET trade. And bieska and burrows both have full no trade clause.
Why do pittsburgh need Lack?
I wouldn't touch Vancouvers lines. Honestly, they are doing good. 13 in the nhl. Wouldn't touch anything. Possibly trade Burrows for a bigger scoring threat.
PIT will keep Benett & does need Lack.
NYR will not trade Skjei for Bieksa & Burrows.
DET is looking for R-D not forwards.
Pittsburgh and New York trades are awful.
Pittsburgh and New York trades are awful.
PIT will keep Benett & does NOT need Lack.
PIT does not need lack and will not get rid of Bennet or Despres. Bennet has more value than Vrbata and Despres is already gaining elite form as a 2-way D
24 Dec 2014 03:52:10
Toronto would probably want Mcdonagh+ or Stepan+ for Kessel
For people saying he couldn't get that:
He is one if the most consistent players in the NHL. Puts up 70-80 points a season on a reasonable contract
24 Dec 2014 23:35:06
Don't think Kessel would fetch McDonagh alone. Stepan + is what is likely to take to acquire Kessel but NYR still wouldn't make that trade because they'd be shallow down the middle. Not to mention Rick Nash is playing lights out this season and is currently is second in goals this year. At this point they don't need to make that kind of a trade acquiring another goal scorer on the wing to replace a centre.
23 Dec 2014 18:51:46
Filppula, Connolly, Koekkoek, NYR 1rst 14
A) you can't trade past draft picks
B) it will need way more to get edmonton's attention
No. Just. No.
Everybody stop with the Hall trades.
They are just plain dumb.
Why would EDM trade their best player?
If they were, it would be for at least 3 1st rounders And 3 B+ Prospects.
People will disagree with me but I say Tampa says no. Doesn't help them all that much. Petry doesn't help them and they lose offensive depth and their top d prospect who could contribute next season. Rangers first could be a lottery pick as well
24 Dec 2014 02:44:52
lol change filpulla and connolly to drouin and you might get somewhere.
24 Dec 2014 10:52:47
Neither team does that. TB does not do it for the reasons jbs32 said and EDM for obvious reasons, because they'd want Drouin +, and they're not getting that.
24 Dec 2014 20:55:22
NHLFunFacts: Hall is good, but no way is he three firsts and three prospects good. Just no way.
19 Dec 2014 21:02:09
To New York Rangers:
To Edmonton Oilers:
Conditional 2015 3rd*
*If Staal does not resign it becomes a 2nd(Tampa Bay's pick)
Rangers lineup(once Duclair comes back):
Ex:Chris Mueller or Ryan Malone
*Send Glass down,it will take $900,000 off our cap
Hagelin-Gordon-Purcell(Pouliot, when he returns)
Hendricks-Pitlick-Pinizotto(Purcell, when Pouliot returns)
There's almost no real value for Edmonton in this deal. Ridiculously one sided
@IslesBlowButILoveEm:How do Hagelin, Staal, Zuccarello, Moore, and others have almost no value?
Staal- would be top pairing D-man
Haggs- is extremely fast, and has good potential
Zuccs- 59 points last year, still in his 20's
Moore-young D-man, has good potential
+others like McIlrath, and other prospects.
I know Hall is good but I'm sorry but I just don't see how "there's almost no real value for Edmonton in this deal."
Staal and Zucc (both definitely won't re sign) are UFAs, Hagelin is a solid player, Moore isn't very good, McIlrath would just be another solid D prospect, Kristo is what 24? He's a good AHL player doesn't look like he'll amount to anything, and Hrivik is in the same boat as Kristo, but he's worse. Don't tell me that the Rangers package would be worth Edmonton's top player, with 5 years of control, and their 2nd and 3rd best defensive prospects. I'm sorry, but idk what you're talking about.
19 Dec 2014 05:35:02
Blues: lethera + shakenkirk
Preds: forsberg + josi
Kings: toffoli + Pearson
Jackets: Johannsen +?
Flyers: couterier + Simmonds +?
Islanders: Nelson + hamonic or Reinhart or hickey
Lightning: Killorn + drouin
rangers: brassard + girardi
Bruins: Hamilton + krejci
Jets: byfulgein + scheifele
Avs: ROR + barrie (oilers add)
What do you think? Good or bad? Why?
19 Dec 2014 08:37:02
in my opinion hall is the only untouchable player on the oilers roster, stillz if I had to choose a trade partner within your trades proposal I would make a deal with the the jackets. I would ask jackets to add david savard to johanssen stillz I don't see the jackets moving johanssen.
Bruins trade is insulting
Some of these trades are really bad.
Blues say no Lehtera is on the best line in hockey and shattenkirk is very valuable to their defence
Preds say no
kings say no easily
jackets say no if they have to add
bruins say no easily
Avs say no easily and never talk to edmonton again if that's what they are asking for
If the Oilers want Byfulgein + Scheifele…wait…there’s no way that the Jets are trading either one of them for Hall. Winnipeg would counter with something like Kane + Comrie + Postma or Clitsome. Hall is solid (NHL.com has him rated as the 5th best LW / Kane 13th, and TSN.ca has him 5th as well / Kane 11th) but all of the proposals favor Edmonton. I can’t see any of them happening. The Oilers are not dealing from a position of strength so no team will overpay - which is what is being proposed here.
THe blues are not going to trade the following.
Petro, Shatty, Tarasenko, Lehtra, Swartz, Allen, Fabbri, Barbashev, Jaybo, Backes, or Statsny. They are completely off the table.
The following blues will not be traded unless it made the blues better.
Oshie, Steen, Berglund, Ratti, Jaskin, Elliot, Linbohm, COle.
That leaves very few that could be traded just to drop cap or to shake it up. In no way would the blues make a trade that is not in their favor at this point in time. They do not need to make cap room, they do not have a player asking to be traded, or do they have a bad seed in the locker room. So face the facts you can whish in one had and sh!t n the other and see which hand gets full quicker. Whishfull thinking or turds.
I needed a laugh. Thanks
17 Dec 2014 12:53:21
conditional 2016 2nd rounder ( if Petry doesn't resign)
17 Dec 2014 19:59:40
why would NYR do that?
lose their number one D-man, and potentially losing their number 2 this summer to ufa, strenghtening their already good offense and substantially weakenenig a defense that could take a big hit no matter what is not a good idea.
No from the rangers I can't see them moving their captain
14 Dec 2014 14:50:04
One thing needs to happen for the Leafs to succeed in the playoffs replace their defence
Before I begin let me state that both players must agree to contract extensions before trade is agreed upon
TML - Gardiner, 2nd rd pick 2016
NYR - Mark Stall
Stall signs 6 y x 6M extension
TML - Kadri, Fransen, mid level prospect
CHI - Seabrook
Seabrook signs 6y x 6.5M extension
Before everyone says I am crazy please remember that both players are ufa and have shown they have little interest in staying with their teams
You don't give up your future for the now, the Leafs have done this in the past and it has always burned them, Kadri, Gardiner and a future Pick traded for 2 UFA'S is a backward move.
Marc stall staying in NY and he will not sign in Toronto if anything he'll go to carolina
Seabrook is not a ufa until after next season
I think trading Kadri, Gardiner and mid level prospect like Ashton for Seabrook is a perfect trade for leafs.
Jvr, Bozak, Kessel
Lupul, Holland, Clarkson
Komarov, Santorelli, Winnik
Booth, Smith, Panik
14 Dec 2014 21:46:59
ONE thing? lol
Im all for trading gardiner but I think trading kadri is a mistake.
Hes developing into a good 2nd line center .
Best center the leafs have had since Sundin.
Your logic is not offside, but Toronto has to add more in both trades (especially the Chicago trade). Both teams are in a playoff spot and have aspirations of a deep run, so I doubt they trade 1 of their respective top d-men right now.
If you want contending teams to give up assets, you HAVE to overpay.
14 Dec 2014 09:35:58
Tor - James Reimer, Brandon Kozun
Dal - Anders Linback, Jamie Oleksiak, 2015 3rd rd pick
Dallas gets a solid backup that will give them stability behind the often injured Lehtonen. They also get a young guy with speed that is good on the pk.
Toronto get a solid prospect that should be good in the future. They also get Linback as a backup but if he still struggles I could see them signing another one and a pick.
Nyr - Marc Staal
Tor - 2015 1st rd pick, Jake Gardiner, Andrew MacWilliam
New York get a solid haul for Staal if he decides to price himself out of what the Rangers want to sign him for. They get a solid pick, a young talented dman along with a prospect.
Toronto gets a solid dman who is very strong in his own end. Obviously Toronto would need to know if Staal was interested in resinging with them as this would not be a trade they would make for a rental player
OK, what makes these trades unbelievable?
The Stars overpay for Reimer and leafs overpay for a ufa that's heading in carolina.
14 Dec 2014 18:29:33
Also New York wants to make the playoffs and go deep into the playoffs again. This trade would make them worse. I know he's a UFA but I unless they get something comparable to Staal or better he's not going anywhere.
I am half in/half out with the Staal trade.
IMO it's likely what it would cost to get Staal out NY at this point in the season, but at the same time with the 1st (and no guarantee of him re-signing) it's an overpayment. Staal is a 2nd pairing d-man, so it's not as if NY would be lost without him and not as if he is going to step in and change Toronto's fortunes (When Polak is back in the line up he is providing a similar element to what Staal would bring).
However, as Titties points out NY is looking to make a deep playoff run, so there is a premium on their players. But not to the extent of adding a 1st in a deep draft.
13 Dec 2014 22:25:00
2015 1ST ROUNDER NYR
2015 3rd rounder
Tampa adds more d-man depth as they make their playoff push, Buffalo gets another high pick and a slight improvement on their investment of a second rounder they paid last year
14 Dec 2014 05:01:56
wow, gorges is not worth a 1st
You should never give up first round pick for depth dman that's a good way to drive your team right into the dirt.
14 Dec 2014 10:21:16
"More dman depth" for a first? I don't think so. At this point, one might think the NYR could even miss the playoffs, turning this into a lottery pick.
@Draisaitl_94 IMO NYR WILL miss the playoffs. I always thought Regier did well and it looks like Murray is make good moves, but they both could learn from Steve Yzerman.
If he got trade for a second a couple months ago, don't see how his value could have gotten up that much.
14 Dec 2014 21:36:30
@sbr2017: You're right. It's a shame he hasn't won GMOY yet. So many good trades and signings and draft choices.
1. Conacher, mid pick for Bishop. Bishop is now an elite NHL goalie, while Conacher plays AHL hockey.
2. Traded Quincey to DET for 1st rd pick. That pick turned out to be Andrei Vasilevski. The best goalie prospect in the world IMO.
3. Stralman looks like an awesome signing. Playing well with Hedman and stepped up when he was out. 4.5 per, I'll take that.
4. Garrison for 50th overall in a mid-weak draft.
etc etc etc.
Draisaitl_94 what was the purpose of the two Sam Gagner trades? Essentially he traded B.J. Crombeen, & Teddy Purcell for a 6th? If it was to drop the cap, why did he have to retain any of Gagner salary.
15 Dec 2014 19:46:20
You essentially said it. It was to bring down to cap to make the signings we did possible.
Stralman, Boyle, Morrow, Nabokov, etc.
Purcell was a useful player, but at 4.5 he was making to much for what he brought to our offensively loaded team.
Crombeen is worth exactly nothing, you could easily sign a FA doing the same. In the year with us, he rather had a negative impact on the team, I can tell you that.
I guess he has to retain the salary on Gagner to convince ARZ to make that deal. Gagners deal expires the year, Stamkos' deal expires, so it frees in additional 1.6m or so from 16/17 on.
I just love him as our GM, such good moves.

Then Rangers sign Dustin Penner for 1 year/ 1.5 million dollars.

In 21 games this season Glass has:
16 Penalty minutes
I think this move would help us out with our depth and Penner is a big improvement over Glass. The problem with this is I don't think any team would want Glass, but we need to get rid of him to make the space for the signing.
I don't think 4th line LW is the Rangers biggest concerns.
Glass was such a bad signing. New York did not need him at all.
I don't think any team would give up anything for him. If he went on waivers I don't think he would even get claimed
I didn't say that is our biggest concern, but it is a problem that can be fixed. But you are right there are also bigger problems right now, and Penner is definitely a big improvement over Glass
Yeah, I would probably say our worst signing of the offseason for us. The thing is there are two big problems with Glass:
1) He is REALLY bad, 1 point is 21 games( and I know he is not here to put up points but come on!)
2)He is signed for 3 years at 1.45 Million dollars(that means that even when he is 34, we will still be paying him $1.45M
And you are probably right I don't think any team would be willing to take him. And even if we sent him down to the minors, only some of his salary would come off.
