This idea just came so

Mtl) Galchenyuk, 1st
Nyr) McDonagh

Patch Drouin Gallagher
Hudon Plekanec Lehkonen
Byron Danault Shaw
Deslauriers DLR Hemsky

McDo Weber
Alzner Petry
Schlemko Benn

06 Oct 2017 17:31:58
haha, the rangers do this why? Galchenyuk is a third line guy in mtl on a team that can't score and the first till be 20-30. Maybe they shouldn't have traded him for scott gomez!

06 Oct 2017 20:10:19
maybe because u guys lost to Colorado lolllllll and everyone knows that Galchenyuk is a top 6 forward he just isn't the right fit dumb ass I hate people like Mclarty08 that don't know rubbish about hockey.

06 Oct 2017 21:38:12
This would be so bad for Montreals future. Window to win would be so small and the scoring up front would be questionable to even be able to win a championship.

06 Oct 2017 23:16:21
If a guy has been given 5 years and failed to live up to his hype and "isn't the right fit" (as MTL4LIFE claims) you would be lucky to add a late first and get a top pair guy in his prime with that cap hit.

07 Oct 2017 04:35:39
I agree with mclarty08, the habs shouldve never traded mcdonagh for gomez.

07 Oct 2017 06:23:29
McDonagh is the Rangers Top D-man, I don't think they are going to just give him away. He will cost Galchenyuk ++ and I don't see the first being enough. Also McDonagh likely isn't even on the trade market. So this is a pipe dream in essence.

07 Oct 2017 12:55:47
Montreals window is already so small. And when a team can't score and has one of the most immobile D in the league, Ryan McDonough at 4.7 mill for a few more years could be just what they need. It's not a terrible thought. A top pair D for a 2nd line winger.

07 Oct 2017 16:07:25
So he’s a top 6 on another team? So even though he’s a third line guy on mtl his value should be of a top 6? He’s not lived up to the hype at all. Montreal should have traded him in a package to get drouin, not give up their top prospect who happens to be a defense in which they have serious needs.

07 Oct 2017 21:19:14
Mclarty08 Ovechkin played on the second line, buchnevich played on the first line does that mean buchnevich is better than ovechkin u dumb ass. Buchnevich isn't even close to being a first line guy the about balancing the lines retard.

09 Oct 2017 01:14:28
Montreal’s second line is a joke a joke and he can’t even make that. He’s playing on the third line. he’s not living up to his expectations and isn’t even close enough to be the main piece in a package for McDonough. That whole team is so overrated it’s digusting. Without price they are a basement team!

14 Sep 2017 11:02:13
Calgary Pittsburgh
Stajan (20% Retained) for 3rd 2018 + Bjorkqvist

Calgary NYR
B. Kulak + M. Klimchuk + 4th 2018 for R. Nash

14 Sep 2017 16:38:41
Too much cap going to Calgary and Pittsburgh is good up the middle

14 Sep 2017 17:53:16
No Pittsburgh isn't good up the middle (bottom six) . Crosby, Malkin, Rowney, McKegg is their current depth chart. They should definetly make a move before the season starts to get a 3C.

14 Sep 2017 18:45:18
I just read that Holland and Rutherford have spoken this week and that Pens are intersted in Wings Sheahan. Pouliot back to the wings is talked about. Maybe some pieces added to either side. But the Wings are $3M over the cap and need to shed still.

15 Sep 2017 18:10:06
Pittsburgh is great top 2 centres and near the bottom of the league bottom 6. Which is why they say it's a priority to get a 3rd center. Have to see how cap would work but I still feel there's a fit there for Tyler bozak. 1 year left at 4.2 mill, great on the draw, decent offence, can play a checking role and penalty kill too, and has a history of playing well with kessel if they wanted to keep the big three on 3 different lines again for added scoring depth.

02 Sep 2017 04:28:09
After the Thomas Vanek signing, Vancouver has way too many forwards. The biggest name brands (Daniel and Henrik Sedin) are free agents after this season, and are unlikely to return to the rebuilding club. So here is my trade offer (s) ;

Trade 1.

D. Sedin + H. Sedin to the New York Rangers in exchange for R. Nash + S. Day + 2018 2nd Round Pick + 2018 4th Round Pick.

- New York needs a centre, and Henrik Sedin provides that.
- Daniel Sedin provides a deadly left side for New York (Himself, Kreider, Vesey, Buch)

- Vancouver is not going to get a first round pick for each Sedin, they're values have dipped.
- Rick Nash can be flipped for more assets if salary is retained; Sean Day is a wild card dman, who could possibly be really good, and the second is pretty good value.

Trade 2.

R. Nash (50% Salary Retention) to the Washington Capitals in exchange for a 2018 2nd Round Pick + 2020 3rd Round Pick.

With the retention (&the brand name buy), a 2nd and 3rd is a fairly reasonable return for Rick Nash.

- In full; Daniel and Henrik Sedin (with 3.6 million in retention) for Sean Day, two seconds and a third and a fourth. Decent. Maybe a bit much, but idk.

02 Sep 2017 09:28:48
Sedins aren't going anywhere, you can't retain 4/ 3 players from the sedins, Vancouver has the forwards to create a competition for the prospects to make them earn a spot on the roster.

02 Sep 2017 16:25:46
Sedin's are not getting traded. They have a bunch of forwards but I believe that they won't even be picked up on waivers. So to trade NHL caliber player and play fringe AHL players will not get fans in the arena. Vancouver need to sell tickets and the Sedin's do that. Magna does not.

02 Sep 2017 21:03:14
But right now, as it stands, Goldobin and Virtanen are on the outside looking in for top9 minutes. Somethings got to give. Both are NHL ready, especially Nikolai.

03 Sep 2017 07:14:37
Goldobin has a hard time staying healthy. As for Virtanen I think he makes the team and Boucher gets put on waivers. Don't know if Dorsett is healthy enough to play. He might start the season on IR. I really don't think Goldobin is a top 6 NHL player. I might be wrong, I'm just not sold on him yet.

21 Aug 2017 21:11:51
Saw Rangers should be potentially interested in Nuge since their center depth took a step down after loaning Stephan, if a trade between these two teams were to take place I'd assume Edmonton wants immediate help.

Oil: Nuge

Rangers: Kreider

Cagguila can move to 3rd line center and Maroon 3rd line LW while top line can consist of Kreider-McDavjd-Drat/ Strome?
Kreider has the speed to skate with McDavid and he makes 2mil less than Nuge.

Just a thought.

21 Aug 2017 23:17:54
Kreider or Skjei would definitely be the players the Oil would want IMO. All would be similar values you'd think. Not sure what either team would be willing to do.

22 Aug 2017 13:01:32
I personally value Kreider higher than Nuge, but this is a relatively decent idea.

22 Aug 2017 17:38:59
Look what the Eberle return was. Think along those lines. You aren't getting a big, fast, 28 goal scorer for Nuge.

22 Aug 2017 19:24:14
Nuge is 2 years younger with more career points.

28 Jul 2017 20:11:07
Two Rangers Trades:

First Trade:

R. Nash and 2019 6th to the Florida Panthers in exchange for C. Sceviour and 2018 2nd.

- Nash did produce 23 goals last year and a high 30s in points, however, his value is continually dropping after a 40 goal season two seasons ago.
- He makes 7.8 million in salary, so dumping him for Sceviour saves about 7 million in cap space.

- Rangers have Buchnevich and Vesey who can fill Nash's spot, plus Sceviour who can take over third line LW.
- Florida picks up the better player with a bigger contract - however, they do have the cap space to do it.
- Because Nash's skill outweighs his 1 year expensive contract (imo), the swap ofpicks goes in the favour of New York.
- Nash can bring experience to a depleted Florida forward group, and can slot in nicely as second line LW, behind Jonathan Huberdeau.

Second Trade:

A. DeAngelo and M. Puempel and 2018 5th to the Boston Bruins in exchange for R. Spooner and M. Subban and Tim Schaller.

- Rangers need a centreman after dealing Stepan. Spooner, although recently signed by Boston, was not favoured by many there. His 'rocky' d-zone play, plus Boston's abundance of centres/ players who can play centre may have cost him a spot on the team.

- Bruins could use a skilled dman like DeAngelo, and although he was recently acquired by NYR (in the Stepan deal nonetheless), it is not much of a loss, due to NYR already having Skjei, McDonagh, Shattenkirk, Smith, Holden and Staal, as well as Bergeglazov as a 7th dman.

- Although Holden for Spooner would be ideal for NYR, the value is completely in NYR's favour, and I could never see this happening. DeAngelo (imo) is worth more than Spooner, and that is why Boston would add Schaller and Subban, while NY only adds Puempel and a 5th.

28 Jul 2017 20:35:48
Don't know much about a cpl guys in the second deal to know. What I do know is that rumours of attitude problems have followed deangelo already and that's something I would stay away from if I'm Boston. Some guys getvtraded and rumours come out that are unfounded but this isn't just once. He was suspended from the OHL by his own team and then the league for racial slurs at a teammate in his draft year. Traded straight up for a 2nd round pick after being picked in the first round by Tampa. Then plays less than 40 NHL games and has a physical abuse of an official suspension and traded again. I could be wrong about this, but I can't help but feel like this kid is going to be one the guys that wastes his talent because he's too dumb to get out of his own way. No other reason why a RHD with his talent at his age is being given up on so soon by 3 teams.

27 Jul 2017 20:14:39
VAN: DeAngelo, miller

NYR: tanev, sutter

28 Jul 2017 06:41:13

28 Jul 2017 12:32:38
No from NYR. They just acquired DeAngelo and he's looking like he could be a real solid Dman for them. And Miller is worth way more than Sutter.

28 Jul 2017 20:06:01
I'm a Nucks fan but hell no from NYR.
JT Miller is the best player in this trade and Tanev doesn't really help NYR.

28 Jul 2017 20:15:36
Rangers need the offence of DeAngelo. Miller is expendable since the Rangers just drafted Lias Andersson.

29 Jul 2017 18:53:28
Why does drafting an 18 year old make a 24 year old center with back to back 22 goal, 45-55 pt seasons expendable today? Best players on rangers (lundqvist, McDonough, zuccarello, Nash, krrider) are 26-35years old. More important to be good now then in 3 years when Andersson can make a big impact and the rest are gone or on the way out. Lundqvist isn't going to be great forever.

22 Jul 2017 19:39:57
Toronto Maple Leafs and Florida Panthers

Maple Leafs trade JVR and Soshnikov to the Panthers in exchange for Mark Pysyk and prospect Max Gildon

Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers

Maple Leafs trade Tyler Bozak and Leo Komarov to the Panthers in exchange for Mika Zibanejad and prospect Sean Day

22 Jul 2017 20:31:36
I don't think fla gives up enough in the first one. And well the second 1 is really bad for the rangers.

22 Jul 2017 20:46:36
First one seems alright. IDk who Gildon is tho.

Bozak and Leo doesn't get Ziby.

23 Jul 2017 03:34:20
The Rangers might want Bozak but they will not trade a centre for him. I think the leafs will be happy with a 2nd for him.

23 Jul 2017 14:33:27
Not interested in Psyk at all he's a bottom pairing dman.

23 Jul 2017 14:38:58
VanCity if Hanzel can get a 1st Bozak obviously can.

24 Jul 2017 22:19:26
bozak is worth a first, with all the trash being traded for 1st round picks at the deadline what's wrong with another, bozak is deadly at the dot and plays a very solid 2 way game, when he was with jvr and kessel he was the only one playing any d. not the greatest player but probably will go down as one of the best free agent college signings of his generation.

17 Jul 2017 22:56:51
Pittsburgh trades Phil Kessel to nyr for Rick Nash


Toronto trades Tyler bozak and a 3rd rnd to Minnis Ota for Mathew dumba.

18 Jul 2017 00:20:36
Lol Phil kessel>>>>Rick Nash
Dumba>>>Bozak and 3rd.

18 Jul 2017 00:25:45

18 Jul 2017 02:10:11
Lol. Kessell has more value than Nash straight up right now.
Minnis Ota laughs at you, Says F off. Lol.

18 Jul 2017 03:03:37
Kessel: 23G - 47A - 70PTS 6.8M
Nash: 23G - 15A - 38PTS 7.8M

that is all.

17 Jul 2017 10:16:49
NYR : Bozak
TOR : Holden and 2018 2nd.

NYR : Spooner
Bos : Stahl 50% retain 2018 4th.

17 Jul 2017 15:15:52
I would t trade a good young forward for staal at this point. Staal and girardi were a coin toss for who got bought out. I would hold on to spooner, see what happens at arbitration. Believe is he will get from 2.6-3.5 mill. Make the decision after that but I believe bruins could trade him for a younger cheaper Dman without staals miles on him.

15 Jun 2017 14:31:38
Mtl: Stepan

Nyr: Plekanec, Juulsen, 1st

I know stepan isn't the number one center the habs are looking for but it'd be tough to trade or cost a lot more to get one and I know stepan is more like a number 2 center but this would be an upgrade

Also I know NYR doesn't want plekanec but should be able to dump him to vegas or somewhere for a mid draft pick, which I originally had going to mtl but took it out as theyd use it to get rid of plekanec and have cap room to go after shattenkirk now

15 Jun 2017 18:29:26
I think we would have to add a second to that because he's a cap dump and ranger are in the win now mode.

13 Jun 2017 11:02:20
New York Rangers:

- Jordan Eberle (800k retained)

Edmonton Oilers:

- Brady Skjei

Think NYR could use a scoring winger since Nash is pretty much worn out.

Helps Edmonton fill in Sekera's spot while he heals with his torn ACL. Hopefully he will eventually replace Sekera as well.

Good PP QB for the Oilers.

13 Jun 2017 11:38:06
Rangers say no. They have high hopes for him especially with Girardi and Staal declining. They want to boost and get younger on the D I think.

13 Jun 2017 12:06:52
No from NY.

Basically for the reasons yup said.

Plus, Skjei was largely ovelooked this year because Werenski was apart of the defenseman rookies. He had 40 points and him/ McDonagh could be really good in the future.

13 Jun 2017 13:56:17
Huge no from New York. I'd trade McDonagh before Skeij. Maybe a 1st for Ebs.

13 Jun 2017 15:03:54
NYR need D way more, especially after they inevitably buy out or get rid of one of Girardi or Staal.

13 Jun 2017 15:08:49
Oilers need a right handed dman.

13 Jun 2017 15:10:15
Not happening. got to offer up significantly more to attain Eberle.

Edmonton offers Juju in lieu of the vast undervaluation on your part for a top 6 winger.

13 Jun 2017 16:33:41
No from NY.

13 Jun 2017 17:15:07
Watch some other teams play once and a while BS Trade4all.

13 Jun 2017 19:38:57
Lol jk I guess Oilers need another left handed dman to add to the other 9 of them?

13 Jun 2017 20:24:16
Yeah that's an easy no from NYR.

13 Jun 2017 21:51:12
It's a no for NYR. I don't know if it's a really easy one. But once again leave it to FT4A to take the argument so far the other way it loses all credibility.

13 Jun 2017 23:37:54
McJesus you tool, doesn't matter if Rangers had 50 LHD, EBerle doesn't touch Skjei.

14 Jun 2017 21:14:39
OILers not rangers*.

14 Jun 2017 21:26:55
You wish. Ebs is worth 10x what that ELC'er is worth.

15 Jun 2017 01:01:37
Right I forgot.
When's Eberle being traded for Provorov and the 2nd Overall again?

12 Jun 2017 22:16:11
Read this:

CAL: Gillies

NYR: Raanta

Flames get a guy who can hopefully be a full time starter (following in Talbots footsteps), and rangers get a goalie for the future.

12 Jun 2017 22:51:49
Don't think Raanta's a future starter tbh.

13 Jun 2017 03:34:36
Neither do I, but he did play well I thought whenever he did play.

13 Jun 2017 10:39:46
No from Calgary. He will be traded for less.

13 Jun 2017 10:40:14
Please explain why NYR would take a worse goalie in a 1-1 trade? The probability of Gillies becoming nothing in the NHL is huge. Raanta is a proven good backup maybe even capable of handling a starting job.

13 Jun 2017 11:47:07
This is a yes from Calgary.

13 Jun 2017 23:20:19
@ slash.
NYR would consider because of Gillies very high ceiling. He has potential to be a legit superstar starter. That no the likely hood of losing Raanta to Vegas for nothing at all.
Saying that, CGY says no and should offer less.

14 Jun 2017 06:32:44
I like it. CGY gets a guy who might be a starter. Similar situation to Talbot. NYR get a really great prospect who might be an all right backup next year. Gilles is also expansion proof.

12 Jun 2017 18:23:25
NYR: Skeji, 21st Overall 2017
WPG: Trouba, 43rd Overall 2017

12 Jun 2017 19:34:53
Why would the rangers send a 1st?

12 Jun 2017 19:36:56
Skeji is good can't see a reason why rangers make that move.

12 Jun 2017 22:30:51
Maybe cause Trouba is one of the best young Dmen in the league far more valuable than Skjei. Give your heads a shake.

13 Jun 2017 02:41:33
Do you see what Skjei just did this season? Far more valuable is just wrong.

12 Jun 2017 16:47:26
Rangers trade raanta
To Calgary for klimchuk and mason McDonald

13 Jun 2017 15:09:53
I'd make that deal any day as the Flames. I really don't see McDonald getting any better. Waste of a second round pick.

10 Jun 2017 18:19:58
Tor: Kadri and 2017 2nd

Mon: Chuck and 25 ovr

Montreal: Kadri instantly becomes there top center and provides 30+ goals.

Toronto: Takes a chance on chuck that could really payoff they can either put him or Nylander as the 2nd C.


Mon: Chuck+

Nyr: Stephan+

Similar to the Zib/Brassard trade.

10 Jun 2017 18:29:01
Leafs aren't trading kadri one, two especially to mtl.

10 Jun 2017 18:57:40
No thanks, We are KEEPING KADRI. He is what every team wants in a 2nd line center.

10 Jun 2017 19:55:19
A trade of good not even great players would never happen between division rivals let alone it being the leafs and Habs.

10 Jun 2017 20:30:26
Guys score 30 goals once don't mean he do it again.

10 Jun 2017 20:50:06
No way from leafs.

Kadri provides much more to them than just another skilled player would.

Plus, Chucky is very unpredictable. don't rlly want tha.

10 Jun 2017 21:15:04
Montreal laughs in Toronto's face. No way Montreal gives up a center with so much potential and a first for a second line center tops and second round pick.

10 Jun 2017 21:19:56
I don't think the leafs should trade Kadri either. I thought they should've traded him a couple years back but he's really become a good 2 way center. The leafs lack physical play and he's one of their best when he doesn't cross the line. He got 30 goals once Nylander, so saying 30+ is a stretch. If Kadri were to get traded, defense is the priority.

11 Jun 2017 02:03:17
I feel as if Galchenyuk's ceiling is higher than Kadri's. Plus Galchenyuk does already provide 30+ goals on a healthy year. Habs do not accept this one.

11 Jun 2017 04:31:54
Kadri is so over rated.

10 Jun 2017 20:00:22

Honestly, trading Kadri now would be a good idea. Scored 30 goals and his value is as high as it's going to get. Trading Kadri wouldn't be a huge loss since you have Marner, Matthews, Nylander, Bozak that can play center. Trade Kadri and get a good defenceman for him.

11 May 2017 20:09:03
Eberle, Kaira 3rd


11 May 2017 21:49:29
Eberle may be lazier but he is also younger and cheaper plus khaira and a 3rd on top is too much for an overpaid injury prone Nash

11 May 2017 22:39:02
So we sacrifice our future 4th line center, lose a pick, gain an older player and take on more salary? :/.

12 May 2017 00:01:40
4th line center? Hmmmm That's a stretch. I think there's better centers to be had. I'd even consider Lander above him on the depth charts.

Nash only has 1 year left where as Ebs has 2. He's only 1.5M more. He'll be gone as a UFA when the cap gets tight year after this with McD. nets a player with a few more years left in him. gives the Rangers a skilled player with a lot of years left for less cap hit than Nash. I know Rangers were looking to move him. Could be a fit for both teams.

Ju ju was named caz the Rangers are rumored to like the kid.

and. any pick in this year's draft is a waste anyways. Oil have 2 - 3rd round picks so there's no tears from me to lose a pick in any round this year including the 1st. It's like the 5 cent sucker the kids get after a $1000.00 dentist's appointment. Pick/ sucker is worth next to nothing but makes NYR/ kid feel better that they get something. lol.

12 May 2017 00:01:57
Edmonton doesn't touch this. Nash is old and producing below his pay. So not worth as much without salary retention . Like others have said, Eberle is still younger.

12 May 2017 02:10:56
Jujhar is slated to be the Oilers 4th line center when Letestu is gone. Letestu has one more year left I believe.
Jujhar will start seeing a lot of 4th line LW next season.

12 May 2017 04:49:21
Terrible for the oilers.

12 May 2017 15:33:05
I get its a weaker draft class than the past few, but I can't believe people saying the picks have zero value. Look back at drafts that are considered terrible and guaranteed you can pick out a few star players that came from them. Someone's pick is going to land on a steal, why not your team? I realize the first and second Round last year was very deep and this years isn't, but to say draft picks are useless is dumb. Why doesn't the NHL just cancel the draft this year? Because nothing good will come from it anyway Lol.

06 May 2017 14:25:21
Toronto: Soshnikov/Bracco,Gardiner and 1st 2017

Nyr: Ryan McDonagh

Who adds? Rangers get a serviceable replacement and get younger. Something like the Brassard trade. Leafs get a top pairing dman and allow Rielly to develop in a top 4 role.

06 May 2017 14:52:04
Thats not remotely comparable to the Brassard trade.

And Bracco is going to be a third liner, Gardiner is a defenseman with flaws, and the 1st is only like 18th overall.

No from New York,

06 May 2017 15:45:49
Gardiner is a good number 3 dman who is younger.

06 May 2017 23:25:03

is he really? I didn't notice. I didn't know that all defencemen were perfect. I really am sorry that gardiner isn't perfect like you know maybe 3 defencemen in the league.

Gardiner made about 5 ridiculous gaffes I can clearly remember, and because its gardiner you are always looking out for them. he cut the number down by 75% from the year before. I think he has made a huge step in becoming a top plairing guy, now, is he a top pairing guy? nahh, those gaffes stop him from being the guy.

Is the difference between Mcdounagh and gardiner a 1st and a good prospect? not in my books.

If you listen to a "stats" guy they will tell you gards is a better player, if you listen to a person who is is ignororant of those stats and takes only what they hear about him they will call him a 4/ 5 defenceman.

Also I see no reason for the leafs to trade gardiner, i'd love to add mcdounagh on top of gards, rileyy and zaitsev haha

Sorry for the long response to such a small comment, i'm just tired of all the gardiner sucks comments.

07 May 2017 06:24:42
Hey BigZ, Gardiner sucks bro!

07 May 2017 13:31:02
Gardiner is one of the worst D jn that league.

07 May 2017 13:47:42
mcdonaugh sucks. almost like he's is/ was a hab or something.

01 May 2017 23:08:05
-SKA Sait Petersburg who just won the KHL championship aquired Yakupovs rights. He is set to be a RFA with STL at seasons end but the KHL team will make a big push for Yak.

-Kovalchuck apperently wants to remain in the New York area (Not stay with Jersey) or play in Florida (apperently only the Panthers) so a sign and trade to the Rangers, Islander or Panthers that means. This source said that that's where him and his family want to be. Pierre Lebrun said Kovie wants to come back and his agent was speaking with the Devils about and a
Russian reporter Slava Malamud added the second part about wanting to be with those three teams.

SKA also acquired the rights for Kucherov as well. Kucherov still has 2 more seasons left on contract while Yak is a RFA. Interesting.

Crap. 2 of the guys I was hoping Habs would target. Kovalchuk and Yakupov.
Cant see the Devis wanting to give him up to Rangers or Islanders very easy. Would probably have to overpay ., and not sure those teams would want to for an aging player.
If he's already dictating where he wants to go. then it may be best to stay away from him, . I could see wanting to go to Rangers as they are a contender, Panthers are up and coming, but still aways off. as for Islanders, they aren't even close.

How is someone disagreeing with my second comment here. Those rights aqcuasitions ACTUALLY happened. Lol!

You could say Penguins won the cup last year and people will disagree.

03 May 2017 09:55:56

Lol no way from mtl. Those pieces aren't worth much and it's not what we need whatsoever so no.

29 Apr 2017 13:07:56
Hahahahaha. Awesome. No salary cap all of a sudden?
Awesome name by the way. You're not alone. Haha.

29 Apr 2017 14:58:32
That Galchenyuk trade is awful.

29 Apr 2017 15:54:40
Why does Edmonton need another number one center.
Not a chance in hell from Habs.
Did you take the salary cap off your XBOX or whatever?

The Rangers have some RFAs to sign this and next summer (Zibanejad/Hayes, Miller, Vesey Skjei) and need to deal with some terrible contracts from the past. Rick Nash is off the books after next season. Nobody will take Girardi. But the biggest problem down the road would be Henrik Lundqvist. He's already 35 and his cap hit is 8,5M for 4 more years! With strong play of Raanta, the Rangers should consider trading The King while he's still got some value. He has a NMC so let's assume he would waive it to go to a team which A) needs a starter B) has a chance to compete for the Cup C) doesn't play in the East D) obviously has the cap space for his contract. The answer is: Dallas Stars.

Henrik Lundqvist

Kari Lehtonen (cap dumb - probably bought out)
2nd and 3rd in 2017 (NYR get back what they gave up for Brendan Smith)

The value isn't high because of the big cap of Lundqvist. This allows NYR to sign their RFAs and maybe Kevin Shattenkirk or other TOP4 RHD. The Stars get an experienced starter who they were looking for a long time.

02 Apr 2017 12:39:37
This all depends on if Hank waives his no-trade clause. IMO if u wanna see if Raanta can be a starter then keep Hank for next season and just have him split the net with Raanta. Then trade him to either Carolina or Dallas or whoever desperately needs a d-man.

02 Apr 2017 13:46:03
I'm pretty sure the king isn't moving.

02 Apr 2017 14:04:24
Idk. With the cap dump of Lehtonen, it basically cancels out the 2nd. I feel like two seconds + someone like Curtis McKenzie/ Mark McNeill would be better. If Lehtonen wasn't in this, the deal would be fine. But because of him and his atrocious contract, there got to be little bit more upside for NYR tbh.

02 Apr 2017 16:403:07
I don't see Dallas or most of the nhl gms picking up the cap hit of 8.5 million for an aging goalie. Super bad contract. You have Ben bishop, fluery, and a few other options before an 8.5 million lundqvist. I just don't see anyone willing to help nyr out of cap hell.

04 Apr 2017 08:19:12
Lundqvist for Lehtonen (arguably negative value) and a 2nd and 3rd in a fairly weak draft? Are you high? Even with Lundqvists age, salary and somewhat of a decline Rangers easily keep him over that.
