12 Oct 2015 00:00:02
My 2016 season predictions (should've posted before th season started but I'mma go anyway)
New York Rangers
New York Islanders
Central was hard, I could see anyone of Chicago, St. Louis, Minnesota or Nashville pushing for the division title.
12 Oct 2015 01:41:15
Where's Ottawa? You only have 2 (Tampa, Mon) in the Atlantic. Ottawa the third?
12 Oct 2015 02:45:24
Oh haha my bad but I can see 3rd or 4th in their division.
13 Oct 2015 03:25:58
Buffalo will finish ahead of Boston
16 Sep 2015 08:25:46
A little tbt even though it is not thursday. So I was looking around on the internet and came across an article with 5 proposed trades that didn't go through in 2008-2009 season and to my shock Tampa was involved in 3.
rangers: Del Zotto, Callahan, Grachev, Girardi, Dubinsky
Habs: Price, Subban, Pacioretty, 1st (leblanc)
I just wonder how Tampa would have been with these players had the 3 trade gone though.
16 Sep 2015 12:11:08
Was that Giroux for Paul Ranger I just saw?
16 Sep 2015 13:31:51
KingsLover ya the worst part is it was Philly that offered it to Tampa. Tampa declined because they had scorers and Ranger was a minute eating top 4 D at the time (for about another year)
16 Sep 2015 15:21:00
Wow. if TB traded Vinny for those players. lol. the habs would be f****
16 Sep 2015 21:59:11
whats the link?
17 Sep 2015 10:18:49
It's true, I have seen those before on the internet.
Well, first and foremost, TB would be in huge cap trouble now, lol.
All those deals would be fantastic now, but as jbs said, Ranger was really good back then (while Giroux was a question mark) and Vinny was elite while no one knew how the 3 habs players would turn out.
And good lord, we were so close to trading Stamkos, good he didnt.
09 Sep 2015 16:37:17
to Bos: Nash and Yandle
to NYR: Torey Krug, Brad Marchand, Malcom Subban, 2016 2nd rnd pick, 2017 1st rnd pick, Seth Griffith
bos gets top line winger and top pairing dman, NY sheds some cap gets some good picks a top tier prospect goalie and prospect winger with some nhl exp, and a 1st/2nd line winger and 2nd pairing offensive dman.
to col: Z Chara, Zach Trotman, Loui Eriksson
to Bos: Erick Johnson
col bolsters their blue line with a true leader and gets a up and comer with some nhl exp and adds two way top line winger in eriksson.
09 Sep 2015 20:06:36
Avalanches top d pairing would retire in the next few years. I think Johnson is way more important to them. Also I'd say a no from NY just because there not in a rebuild
09 Sep 2015 21:26:33
I would like 1 reason why NYR does this? They want to contend for the cup also Marchand can't come close to replacing Nash.
10 Sep 2015 06:56:06
the trade is kinda bad but I also noticed you said Pastrnak would be on the first line. thought that was odd
09 Sep 2015 08:07:39
Spezza could be a 1st line center on most teams, NY included. It seems Stepan won't be progressing much more, and will slot in nicely as a 2nd liner. Rangers have enough defensive defenseman (McD, Klein, Boyle, Summers) and could afford to replace Girardi with a lesser defenseman with a higher offensive ability.
Dallas gets a player who is still not as good as Spezza but is still a great 2nd line center, as well as a well-needed skilled and responsible defensive defenseman (While Klingberg is good, he's very much an offensively-minded defenseman. Oduya is not the real solution to their defensive woes, as and Chicago fan can tell you)
09 Sep 2015 13:13:59
Lateral move for both teams, spezza is better on offense, brassard is better on d and face offs. Grading is a better all round player than goligoski. No reason either team would entertain this trade.
09 Sep 2015 13:24:50
I'd rather have Brassard than Stepan
09 Sep 2015 01:50:40
Rangers 1st (from Yandle trade)
Carolina has Lack now so they don't need a future goalie
Arizona will never be good if Domingue is their goalie of the future, and Nedeljkovic should be good
09 Sep 2015 05:57:33
''They don't need a future goalie''
Every team needs a future goalie. Nedeljokovic is one of the best, maybe THE best goalie prospects in the league.
09 Sep 2015 06:23:22
Especially that Eddie Lack, who is already 27, isn't 100% proven to be a starter in the NHL.
09 Sep 2015 07:43:23
I'd say Eddie Lack is a starter, he could steal Wards starting job. Ned is easily a top 10 goalie prospect so I can't see Carolina giving him up as his ceiling is higher then Lack and Wars.
09 Sep 2015 13:15:04
Don't see Arizona movi picks at this point for prospects.
09 Sep 2015 01:43:00
to Los Angeles
to Tampa Bay
Gudlevskis was a beast at the olympics but didn't look too good in the '14 playoffs, so he may or may not be good. Rangers need a future goalie, for Lundqvist only has so many years left
09 Sep 2015 05:59:02
Gudlevskis is a good goalie, but only at the AHL level, he might fetch a 4th or a 5th at mininum.
And maybe you didn't realize, but It isn't the ''LA Rangers'', and they don't have Lundqvist.
09 Sep 2015 07:15:58
I was going to say he should go to LA, then thought it would be better to send him to NY
I didn't fix it
09 Sep 2015 08:23:55
Factoring in Vasya's injury, it's a pretty safe bet to say Gudlevskis won't be traded. At least not until Vasilevskiy is back healthy.
Oh and Gudlevskis got put in in two playoff games as his first NHL games I think, so this really shouldn't be a factor. Team wasn't playing exactly good, either.
09 Sep 2015 13:16:58
Didn't the Rangers just get raanta who is only 26?
09 Sep 2015 13:26:42
I'm pretty sure Gudlevskis is going to start the season with Tampa because of Vaselevski's injury.
10 Sep 2015 06:56:04
He as good goalie he almost eliminated canada from Olympics
05 Sep 2015 06:48:12
NYR trades Yandle to Edmonton for A prospect, 2nd and a conditional 1st(if he resigns)
05 Sep 2015 08:49:55
Oilers need a defensive defence man. Yandle isn't one.
05 Sep 2015 09:37:15
edm oil is right.
Outside of that, if you meant an "A prospect" the only one EDM has is McDavid and I rather doubt McDavid, 2nd, cond. 1st is a package EDM should offer for Yandle.
Stop inflating the prospect letters.
05 Sep 2015 17:24:15
@draisaitl how about darnell nurse or griffen reinhart or leon draisaitl these are all pretty damn good prospect along with oskar klefbom if he's still considered a prospect these 4 would be better then most teams top 4 prospect tampa and montreal included.please don't reply with how Anthony Deangelo is the next bobby orr
05 Sep 2015 18:44:24
When I say A. I meant a good prospect.
05 Sep 2015 18:54:57
but, isn't Draisaitl an A prospect?
05 Sep 2015 22:39:57
I'd say Draisaitl is B(+).
@hab: Srsly, what's your problem with me, dude?
Those are good prospects, but no A prospects.
Nurse, Reinhart, Draisaitl, Klefbom? Very good 4. Can Montreal top it? No way. Can Tampa top it? I think so.
Vasilevskiy, DeAngelo, Koekkoek, Drouin and if you won't count Drouin, take Erne or Point instead.
Can other teams top it, too? Yes.
06 Sep 2015 02:18:34
And if you throw it Erne or Point, I will throw it Khaira,Yakimov,Chase or Slepyshev.
06 Sep 2015 02:19:21
Also, Koekkek isn't as good as you think. You're overvaluing him.
06 Sep 2015 09:13:17
And you know so much better how good Koekkoek is? Interesting.
While you're at it throwing rather meh prospects(Khaira, Yakimov, Chase, Slepyshev, Brossoit) in the mix, I could add a boatload of those from Tampa as well.
Vasilevskiy, Drouin, DeAngelo, Koekkoek, Erne, Point, Gudlevskis, Peca, Stephens, Spencer, MacLeod, Masin, Wilcox, GUsev, Yan.
This is pointless, someone above said top 4, and I'd take Vasya, Drouin, DeAngelo, Koekkoek over Draisaitl, Klefbom, Reinhart and Nurse any day of the week.
I'm not saying the Oils prospects are bad or anything. Not at all, I actually like all of those a lot and all are great talents. But give me the choice and I'll go with the Lightning package all day.
06 Sep 2015 18:03:43
Oh so this is the post you were referring to in you post Drais lol. What a surprise NN21 talking up these C level prospects as usual.
Erne and Point are far better prospects then Kharia, Yakumiv, Chase, Slepyshev, moroz all your no name prospects marginal prospects.
I don't see the hype around Brossoit either, former 4th round 4-5 years ago? Didn't even look that great in AHL last year.(I know he's still 22 so lots of time to develop)
06 Sep 2015 21:53:51
Didn't Brossoit play well last year in the AHL? And he played lights out the one game for the Oilers. I can't vouch for some of those prospects but I'm pretty sure Chase has been playing very well.
07 Sep 2015 03:00:26
I meant to say did he not didn't. I've never watched Brossoit play so I have no idea
07 Sep 2015 08:08:55
Yeah I think he put up good numbers. IMO there isn't much hype behind Brossoit so that kinda concerns me but the Oilers think he's one of there top 5 prospects I'm pretty sure
03 Sep 2015 02:56:14
2 straight up Jets trades
let me know if these trades would work be classy in the comments
03 Sep 2015 08:41:44
I'd rather Ladd and I don't think the Jets would have a very good chance of resigning Lucic.
03 Sep 2015 02:11:37
- K. Yandle
- 16 2nd
- 16 3rd
- 17 conditional 2nd (if Yandle resigns)
03 Sep 2015 04:23:12
I'd think Yandle could bring back better quality then this.
03 Sep 2015 20:18:55
Rangers were stupid 2 trade 4 him
02 Sep 2015 15:09:12
Dallas: Hemsky, Nemeth, 2nd 2016
NYR: Yandle, Fast, Summers
Rangers need some bottom 6 forwards, especially RW. Hemsky fits that role. They also pick up a decent bottom pairing d-man with potential as well as a mid-round 2nd. Rangers have a plethora of defencemen and can afford to lose one.
Dallas gets a good top pairing d-man who only has one year left on his contract. They also get some compensation, in case Yandle doesn't resign, in the form of Jesper Fast and Chris Summers.
31 Aug 2015 17:11:23
NYR- Keith Yandle
PIT- Derrick Pouliot, 2017 3rd
31 Aug 2015 21:31:44
D.Pouliout, one of the Penguins best young Defenceman and future top pairing guy with Olli Maata for a 1 year rental in Yandle. Do I need to say more?
31 Aug 2015 01:34:41
New York Rangers trades Keith Yandle
Pittsburgh Penguins for Pascal Dupuis, Brian Dumoulin, and two 2nd rd picks
31 Aug 2015 07:30:05
This one is interesting, If Yandle resigns in Pitts then its good.
30 Aug 2015 22:39:20
Block buster trade if negoations fell through with Kopitar. Bring on the hate.
To NYR Kopitar, Clifford, Greene, 5th
To LA Brassard, Krieder, Yandle, 3rd
LA upgrades everything but Center, Brassard is a 2nd line C on a cup team, 1st on a lot of teams, good playoff guy. Rangers get their 1st line Elite Centremen.
31 Aug 2015 07:31:17
No from New York IMO
31 Aug 2015 09:07:34
Easy yes from NY, imo. Brassard is good, but Kopitar gives them a whole other dimension. Losing Kreider is tough, but for Kopitar, I'd do it.
31 Aug 2015 10:47:27
So, if as you say LA upgrades everything, New York must downgrade everything, therefore why would they do it?
31 Aug 2015 14:33:34
No From LA. Kopitar makes a huge impact when he's on his game and easily one of the best players in the league. I'd be hesitant to trade him for that package alone.
31 Aug 2015 15:20:54
They mostly downgrade yes, but hence the obvious and what I stated they upgrade at Center greatly.
31 Aug 2015 15:38:39
NO! NO NO NO! New York is where superstars at the end of their career go! He's not leaving LA when he's 29 to join your Rangers! Maybe when he's 37 and doesn't produce that much then you can have Kopi.
27 Aug 2015 18:42:52
1. Bos signs Manny Malholtra 1yr 750K
to ott: Chris Kelly
to Bos: 2016 3rd rnd pick
to ANH: Loui Eriksson Max Talbot & 3rd rnd pick(ott)
toBos: Chris Stewart and John Gibson
toBos: Brent Seabrook
to Chi: 2017 1st rnd, Malcom Subban & Torey Krug
tobos: Kyle Okposo
tonyi: seidenberg, ferlin, 2016 2nd& Brett Connolly
to bos: Marc Staal
to nyr: Zack trotman, Seth griffith, Zack philips, kevan miller, 2016 3rd (bos), Austin Czarnik
27 Aug 2015 19:32:04
That quite a bit to much for Seabrook IMO.
27 Aug 2015 21:56:43
I'd like to see Kelly back in Ottawa. He had some good years there and is a solid veteran presence for their young forwards
28 Aug 2015 01:25:06
Yeah so add a LOT more for John Gibson.
28 Aug 2015 12:45:36
I'd be inclined to think Anaheim with three goalies would take Loui Eriksson for John Gibson at the moment. eriksson is the type that could help the ducks in a deep play off run. then the rest of the trade is stewart for a 3rd which is also reasonable.
28 Aug 2015 14:34:42
Anaheim didn't take on Khudoban to simply give away Gibson for nothing. I don't actually know why they took on Khudoban, but I guarantee it wasn't to degrade the value of their top G prospect. He's still very much a valuable cog and they won't trade him just cuz. If anything, it's Khudoban's tenure in ANA that will be cut short.
27 Aug 2015 04:27:06
Just for fun(Hope this doesn't actually happen)
1 last shot at a cup run for the Canucks while the Sedins are around
With that said.
-2016 3rd(From Pits)
-Eric Staal(50% retained)
So pretty much Canucks give almost every decent prospect away in exchange for UFAs who could be on the block. Canucks would more then likely be unable to sign any so it's a one shot deal.
Just saying I'm very strongly against trading away the few good prospects we have this is just for fun as I said before and nucks would probably be8million over salary cap but whatever.
Lose in 1st round to Calgary in 6 lol.
27 Aug 2015 06:24:49
Lol you trade away all your best prospects and you still don't improve the goaltending
27 Aug 2015 13:04:46
Yeah I know defs the weak spot on this team. I couldn't improve it because no one would trade for Miller and I don't want a 6mil backup lol
27 Aug 2015 13:15:20
Byfuglien on the bottom pairing? He's the best defenseman on that team.
27 Aug 2015 13:32:48
Okposo will take a top prospect and 1st pick.
27 Aug 2015 14:00:25
@Stammer that's true but I think Yandle/Hamhuis would be a better pairing together. Buff can be 1st PP
27 Aug 2015 14:02:25
New D pairing.
27 Aug 2015 14:25:27
U chirp others but this one is pre bad. There not going to trade for Eric Staal while having Sedin, Horvat and Sutter. Okposo would need more . Same with Yandle trade. At least a top prospect and a 1st would be the price for both
27 Aug 2015 14:26:05
And literally u just traded all of Vancouvers prospects
27 Aug 2015 14:53:42
@leafs, he literally said it was for fun, calm down
27 Aug 2015 14:42:35
LOL @leafs99. Obviously it's not great I ran out of trading assets after the first 2 trades. Besides it may be bad I agree but your posts are easily the worst on this site so your opinion means nothing to me.
28 Aug 2015 03:19:18
& Btw I kept Virtanen & Brock Boeser. Argueably 2 of their top 3 prospects.
26 Aug 2015 15:04:11
D. Krejci, Joe Morrow, Z. Senyshyn
C. Coyle, N. Niedereiter
(cap wise this does work out)

LW C RW
Marchand Bergeron Hayes
Boedker Spooner Pastrnak
Beleski Coyle Niedereiter
Lessio Koko Connolly
26 Aug 2015 17:49:19
the Bos/Min is a gross overpayment from Boston as well as the Bos/Arz trade. bos takes some items back from the bargaining table on those.
Boedkker isn't proven yet. he's notoriiously known for his inconsistent play and battles some injuries.
26 Aug 2015 18:19:13
I'd do it all, overpayment for Minnesota trade? Taking on 22 year old 1st round picks who had 35+ points last year playing on a third line. potential of that trade is great.
Overpayment is, Subban, Krug, and a 1st for Tatar. stop smoking crack, everyone of your trades is so off, and when another B's fan throws one out there, you come down on it like it's the worst thing ever. Your like a leafs fan, and I at least tried logical trades. Overpaying on the bruins end is going to happen, trying to shed salary and take on Young talent is hard, and the league hates us. At least with my trades there's a future past 2016, and it gives a nice chance at winning now.
Go trade 2 Studs and a 1st for a 3rd line winger all you want.
26 Aug 2015 18:21:23
and in the boedker trade I said if he gets injured the 1st turns to a 2nd. try reading man, it actually works out great. Griffith-no fit here-O'gara good piece for a trade-and if the pick did end up being a first. that's the going rate for top 6 forwards in the NHL in case you haven't noticed.
26 Aug 2015 19:15:27
Yikes man you take this stuff too seriously. you seem a little sensitive to one mans opinion. I didn't knock it down saying your post was all rubbish. out of your 6 trades I said I didn't like 2 of them. which means I'm on board with 60% of your post. and as for griffith who's going to play the 4th line next year? you think the B's gave up 2 2nd round picks to bury connolly on the 4th line? or their going to leave one of their top AHL scorers on the 4th line? rriiighhhttt. and I'm the one smoking crack
27 Aug 2015 01:38:37
Lol at the Boston/Colorado trade. Colorado blocks Joston's number
27 Aug 2015 14:05:58
26 Aug 2015 00:38:57
NYI Yandle, 2nd
NYR Okposo, 3rd
Both have 1 year left, similar caps and age.
26 Aug 2015 05:42:38
I like it. Although not sure if Rangers/isles would make that trade. Rangers could use a top 6 winger and islanders could use another Defenceman. I think it would be a straight up trade however.
26 Aug 2015 05:45:18
I woulda thought Yandle would have more value no? And would one of Strome, Lee, Dal Colle be ready to get first line minutes
26 Aug 2015 10:45:37
IMO, Okposo has more value. Would be a great fit with NYR. Maybe take out the 3rd
27 Aug 2015 18:31:06
Oilers_11 Strome already does get 1st line minuted playing with Tavares for the second half of the season!
27 Aug 2015 20:01:17
I thought so but wasn't sure. And Lee also played with JT right? I say they don't need Okposo and both teams would do it
25 Aug 2015 17:44:38
Some random trades to help some teams out. Trying to be as fair as possible.
NSH: Dennis Seidenberg, 2nd Round (2016)
BOS: Ryan Ellis
I think this trade makes sense for Boston because it helps them clear cap space and fills the hole on defence left from the Dougie Hamilton trade, they don't have many offensive minded defenders.
I think this trade makes sense for Nashville because already having 3 Top RHD (Weber, Jones, and Ellis) then adding an experienced top-4 defender in Seidenberg makes Nashville arguably have one of the best blue-lines in the league. Plus they get a good pick
NYR: Jamie Oleksiak, Radek Faksa, 1st Round (2016), 4th Round (2017)
DAL: Keith Yandle, Emerson Etem (Conditional 3rd Round (2016) (Becomes a 2nd if Yandle doesn't resign))
Dallas definitely improves their defence in this trade, which is exactly what they need to do.
New York won't be able to afford Yandle, New York also has a relatively weak prospect pool. Adding Oleksiak, Faksa, and a 1st Round Pick will definitely help replenish their prospect pool.
25 Aug 2015 19:53:12
Oleksiak isn't worth as much as people think, the guy had multiple oppurtunities to get in the NHL. Dallas signed him to a one year deal, this might be his last chance.
Faksa is a hidden prospect. Nothing special about him. Likely to be a 3rd/4th liner in the NHL.
The only REAL value coming back to NY is the 2016 1st.
25 Aug 2015 20:26:27
First off even with that trade Boston still would only have Krug as the Offensive D-Man, as Ellis is a two-way guy.
Second Dallas should be looking for defencemen who are actually good at DEFENDING. Yandle is purely offence. Plus Etem is starting to look like a bust just like many others from his draft class.
25 Aug 2015 23:48:27
KingsLover you act like its a bad thing Ellis is a two d. Then you go on to say they shouldn't get Yandle because he's all offence
26 Aug 2015 05:47:58
Ya I'm going to go ahead a retract that comment
25 Aug 2015 13:56:03
to Ott: Chris kelly
to Bos 2016/2017 3rd rnd picks
this adds a good vet presesnce to ottawa and a great draw and PK to bolster their 4th line. kelly gets to come home and boston gains cap space.
to chi: kevan miller, Brian ferlin, 2017 3rd rnd pick
to bos: kris versteeg, brian bickel (1.5M retained)
chi gets some much needed cap space to resign kruger, a tough 3rd pairing dman on the cheap, and a draft pick.
Boston gets serviceable wingers for their 4th line who have the potential to move up.
to buff: Dennis seidenberg
to Bos: Marcus Faligno
bos gets serviceable 3rd line winger and Buff gets much needed vet LH shot dman.
to bos, yandle and K hays
to NYR: 2017 1st, 2016 3rd, malcom subban, Seth Griffith.
NYR get some cap relief, a good 1st rnd pick a 3rd, a young wing prospect and a top tier goalie to bring up to take over for the king. bos gets young 3rd line wing with room to grow who can also play with his brother. and yandle to be a piece of the d future.
to bos: seth jones
to Nash: Koko, Connolly, erkisson, torey krug
bos gets a rh shot dman of the future. nashville gets top tier centre prospect, 2nd/3rd line winger in connolly, top line rw/lw in eriksson and PP specialst in krug who can anchor the 2nd pairing whos a LH shot.
ex irwin/c miller
25 Aug 2015 16:09:32
1st trade - You'll only get one 3rd round pick for Kelly.
2nd trade - Seems fair since Chicago is holding back salary
3rd trade - Buffalo probably adds a mid round pick (4th/5th)
4th trade - Rangers ain't trading Hayes
5th trade - and Nashville won't trade Jones
25 Aug 2015 18:35:31
Not even close for Jones
