2 straight up Jets trades

WPG: Lucic
LAK: Ladd


WPG: Yandle
NYR: Byfuglien

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
- J.Schultz
- M.Moroz
- 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 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.


Canucks trade
-Thatcher Demko
-Yanick Weber
-2016 2nd

Rangers trade
-Keith Yandle
-2016 5th


Canucks trade
-Jared McCann
-Chris Higgins
-2016 3rd(From Pits)

Islanders trade
-Kyle Okposo


Canucks trade
-Cole Cassels
-Hunter Shinkaruk
-2017 2nd

Jets trade
-Dustin Byfuglien


Canucks trade
-2016 1st
-Nicklas Jensen
-Linden Vey
-Jordan Subban

Hurricanes trade
-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.

2015/2016 lineup




Playoffs :
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 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
Boston's ^

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.

BOS lineup

Marchand-Berg-J Hays
Faligno-Spooner-K Hays
Bickel-Kempainen- Versteeg
ex rinaldo

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

24 Aug 2015 17:56:38
to Bos: Mikkel Boedkr
to Arz: Loui Eriksson
boston gets 3rd line winger who's been up and down but could find some consistency with a change of scenery. ARZ gets solid pt producer who plays a two way game and can play either wing on the top line.

to Bos: Keith Yandle
to NYR: Subban, 2017 1st rnd pick, seth griffith and kevan miller
Rangers get top tier goalie prospect, young wing prospect 3rd pairing tough guy dman in miller and a 1st rnd pick. also a bit of cap room. Bruins get a dman they can resign and use as a building block for the future.

to Bos: Seth Jones
to Nash: koko, 2016 2nd rnd pick, Brett Connolly, dennis seidenberg
Bos gets a potential top pairing dman. nashville gets young rw with scoring potenital in connolly, a good 2nd rnd pick, a 2nd pairing shut down dman to play with ellis. and a top tier centre propsect in koko with known scoring ability. this also allows jones to escape the shadow of webber and ellis. preds won't trade webber becuase the way his contract is laid out his actual money gets cheaper for them in a couple years

to Bos: kyle okposo
to NYI: Torey Krug and Chris kelly
islanders get pk speciaist and good two centre for bottom 6. and PP specialist in krug who can play left side 2nd pairing. both krug and okposo need to be resigned so both teams are in the same boat.

boston would have the space to sign Okposo, Boedkr, Jones and Yandle to deals for the following season.


ex: rinaldo


24 Aug 2015 18:44:07
1. does not get you Boedker
2. overpayment for Yandle
3. not enough for Jones
4. not enough for Okposo

24 Aug 2015 19:51:16
These are so biased its crazy!

24 Aug 2015 23:54:11
you over pay on yandle pretty bad. Jones isn't going anywhere and what you offered is not even close to getting him. Okposo would also take a better package to aquire

25 Aug 2015 01:24:56
I'd rather have Boedker

Not terrible for Yandle, I think it's a bit too much.

Jones deal isn't close. Nashville GM would counter with Ribero for Bergeron let's just say.

Okposo is worth more.

Based on your posts in the past this could be considered one of your better ones so good on ya for that.

23 Aug 2015 14:25:24
I say that Montreal should trade Alexei Emelin to Van for Yannick Weber and a 6th round pick. Since Montreal lacks a 2nd line LW, Scherbak makes the team out of training camp and we use Semin as our 2nd line LW. To me it makes sense because MTL then has depth on both LW and RW. If it doesn't make sense to you, you're just an idiot.
Here's the lineup:



Now Montreal has talent on all of their lines and have an even better defence corps which will eventually help them lead themselves to their 25th Stanley Cup.

Ps: they get more goals and can't even imagine the chemistry that 2nd line is going to have since they are all Russians. If you find that there needs to be adjustments on this post, just let me know. And btw, the Blackhawks are not the same team. To me the only teams I am worried about are the caps, the Lightning, the Rangers and the ducks especially. I think that the cup final is going to be Anaheim vs Montreal. Montreal wins in 7 games thanks to Pk Subban coming out of the penalty box and scoring in Overtime.


23 Aug 2015 15:11:40
Lol no way from Van. As sad as this sounds Weber is our Powerplay quarterback and we don't need Emelin. And Montreal won't make the finals lol

23 Aug 2015 16:15:30
Haha. I hope your prediction is true. If we can trade Emelin. which I really don't want to. kinda need a physical dman Comin back. Weber is another puck mover. With Subban , Markov. Beaulieu, Gilbert. and Petry. To many pick movers. Not enough bangers. ad for Skerbac. I would love to see him make the team. but is he ready? Maybe a year in the AHL, will help him.

23 Aug 2015 16:52:42
Ya. How intoxicated were you when you wrote the PS? Or did you believe the habs would actually make the finals? Either is hyserical.

Teams like

St Louis
San Jose

All have betterr shots at the cup than Montreal,

Only reason Montreal is so good in the regular season is because of Price. No one else.

But even he needs some rest, therefore causing them to lose almost all the time in the playoffs.

Theire a good team don't get me wrong, much better than my leafs at them moment. However, they aren't that good, as only Price is a true star. subban and paccioretty are good, but not TOO great. After that, the rest of the team is Gallagher, Galchenyuk and a bunch of overpiad No-gooders

23 Aug 2015 17:14:20
You do realize Semin sucks and Scherbak is too young to take that role. Also Plekanec is not a number 1 center. So to rap it all up your not winning the cup omg lmao.

23 Aug 2015 17:46:07
Vancouver sucks all right bud. They might be worse than the coyotes. They won't make the playoffs. Henrik Sedin,Daniel Sedin, Vrbata, burrows and Miller are going to retire soon. Without them, they won't even get 10 wins. So I suggest you shut your mouth, because if Weber is your power-play quarter back, very sad I got to say. MTL has Subban, Markov, Petry, Beaulieu and Gilbert on the PP, all better than Weber. Emelin is even better than Edler and Hammus. You guys traded your future no 1 goalie in Lack. You also traded Kassian for Prust( horrible move I must say since Kassian is a power forward and all prust does is hit and fight). You guys signed to like 4 million which is completely ridiculous and Marc Bergevin signed Alex Semin to just 1.1 million. So there you have it stupid Canucks fan!!!

23 Aug 2015 18:23:51
@pk I hope the Canucks suck like you said. I want a damn rebuild. Emelin is better then Hammer/Edler? I can tell your 10 years old and no nothing about hockey so I won't even bother.

23 Aug 2015 18:56:47
The Habs wouldn't be a playoff team without Price, they just don't have the forwards. Don't get me wrong, they have some good ones, but they also have a lot of players

23 Aug 2015 19:28:04
I don't like the Canucks? I'm a Leaf fan duuuuuhhh. Chill out though dude.

23 Aug 2015 19:53:56
Lol I agree with pk!

Plus sure but carey is part of the team
If tavares was not playing for the islenders then they would not be a playoff team!
For exemple
As for the d weber is garbage we had him in montreal and we let him go cause he was soft Same for diaz! These are no qb even petry are bether option then those two!

Face it I take montreal d over half of the nhl d anytime anyday!

Montreal stole the trade twice with Vancouver : first weise>Diaz. Then kassian >prust

23 Aug 2015 19:58:42
lmfao Emelinnis better than Hamhuis? I knew he was intoxicated.

23 Aug 2015 23:03:16
Hamhuis and Edler >>>>>> Better than every Habs d-man except for Subban

23 Aug 2015 23:03:43
You STOLE Dale Weise!!! A untalented 3/4 liner. Lawl rotfl lol lmao lmfao!!

24 Aug 2015 06:44:08
We stole the trade plus dale weise could play on every Line This season

24 Aug 2015 17:39:24
MF you said it, you take montreals d over half the d in the nhl.

the bottom half.

21 Aug 2015 15:35:57
to Buff: Dennis Seidenberg(4M)
to Bos: 2016 3rd rnd pick /2017 3rd rnd pick

Buffalo gets a much needed LH shot reliable shutdown defenceman at an affordable cap hit.
Bruins get a couple later rnd picks and frees up some more cap space.

to Bos: Patrick Wiercioch
to OTT: Chris Kelly, 2017 3rd rnd pck(Buf)

Ottawa gets leadership and a dominant faceoff PK guy in Kelly (who also gets to come back to Ott) and can be resigned at a hometown discount to retire a sen and they also get a pick. Bruins get a LF to take over the 3rd pairing.

to BOS: Kevin Hayes, Keith yandle
to NYR: Malcom subban, Joe morrow, 2016 2nd rnd pick, and Koko
Bruins get to unite the hayes brothers and bring in top end dman yandle. NYR get some cap relief and get top tier goalie prospect to follow the king, top c prospect koko 3rd pairing smooth skating dman in morrow and 2nd rnd pick.

to ARZ: Loui Eriksson, Kevan Miller, seth griffith
to BOS: Mikkel Boedker and 2017 3rd pick
BOS gets 2nd/3rd line LW. arz gets top line 2 way forward with a good net presesnce and 3rd pairing stay at home dman who isn't afraid to fight for his teammates and 3rd line speedy winger seth griffith.

to BOS: Ryan Ellis
to Nash: 2017 1st rnd pick, Brett Connolly, 2016 3rd rnd pick (buf) and Torey Krug.
Bos gets young rh shot dman that they can build around. nash gets 1st rnd pick 2nd/3rd line rw another draft pick and slick puck moving LH shot dman in torey krug.

1st trade - Seems fair
2nd trade - pretty fair but Sens probs won't part with Weircoch
3rd trade - Rangers aren't trading Kevin Hayes
4th trade - Doesn't seem like a good idea for Arizona
5th trade - Huge overpayment by Boston

21 Aug 2015 18:28:31
Who do you think Ellis is damn, I would be hesitant to Trade Krug straight up for him.

18 Aug 2015 16:44:35
Boston trades Chara, Eriksson, Krug, M. Subban. Pasternak and a 1st rd pick to NYR for Yandle, Girardi and Nash

NYR flip a 1st rd pick, Glass, Hayes and Miller to Toronto for JVR

NYR lineup-
JVR. Stephan. Zuccarello
Kreider. Brassard. Pasternak
Etem. Moore. Eriksson
Stalberg. Stoll. Fast

Mcdonagh. Chara
Staal. Boyle
Krug. Klein

Lundqvist. Raanta/Subban

18 Aug 2015 18:40:55
no from boston and toronto

19 Aug 2015 00:50:56
Hayes, Miller, 1st is worth more then JVR

19 Aug 2015 01:43:42
Your values aren't that far off. However nothing about that trade makes sense

19 Aug 2015 01:58:54
1st trade is plausible now Sather is gone, Leafs trade zero chance, waaaay too many teams like JVR & his salary, and Rangers will finish well making the 1st pick almost a 2nd.

Rangers with cap problems, won't be able to resign Yandle. Trade proposal:

NYR: Keith Yandle (on an expiring contract)
OTT: Patrick Wiercioch, Matt Peumpel, conditional 3rd if Yandle resigns in OTT

NYR gets a younger, two way puck moving dman in Wiercioch who can man the 2nd PP unit and can be equivalent (if not more) to Yandle in the next year or two. (Note he also won gold with Canada in World championship and was a stud in the playoffs against MTL as he tied karlsson to lead all of Ottawa in points in the series) He is also in a very cap friendly contract (2m in the next three years). they also get an NHL ready depth player in Puempel who's a former 1st rounder in 2011. Also a proven sniper in the ahl and can contribute offensively/defensively in a bottom 6 role. He was also mostly in the line up with OTT (outplaying chiasson and Neil) during that run they made to the playoffs last season.

OTT on the other hand, takes the next step in their development and majorly improves their defense, as they try to compete with TBL, MTL for the Atlantic title.

This trade could potentially make Ottawa a serious threat in the playoffs, if not, even a contender in the east. It also keeps NYR in the mix as they continue to be a contender in the east and they still get pretty solid players in return for Yandle.

Best case scenario: OTT resigns Yandle to a 5yr 5m contract.

Condition is if he resigns it's a first and he'll probably get more than 5 mil

Buffalo trades Sam Reinhart and Tyler Ennis to NYR for Rick Nash and Keith Yandle (picks may be involved)
Thoughts? Just throwing out an idea-Rangers get much needed cap space. Buffalo has the cap space for this trade and make their top 6 very scary while adding a top 4 defenseman

Buffalo obviously has to pay the price with Reinhart-2014 2nd overall pick and a top 6 forward in Ennis

Buffalo top 6-
Kane. Eichel. Nash
Moulson OReilly. Girgensons

yandle is a free agent after this year (who knows if he'd want to stay in BUF) and nash is getting to the end of his prime years. so, neither really help a buffalo team that os comitted to a rebuild and have actually done a very good job of it and are nearing the end imo.

No. Not ever. Stop being dense.

Edmonton trades Yakupov, Purcell and a conditional 1st rd pick to NYR for Rick Nash
(1st rd pick changes to 2nd if Nash scores less than 25)

Edmonton top 6-
Hall McDavid. Eberle
Pouliot. RNH. Nash

Just plain dumb. Seriously dumb.

NYR trades Keith Yandle to Dallas for Oleksiak, Fiddler

15 Aug 2015 15:21:01

Keith Yandle top 2 NHL defenceman

Oleksiak can't stay in the NHL, selected in the first round (2011)
used as depth on most teams.

Vernon Fiddler is pretty much a useless player now.

Add a 1st going to NYR and maybe

15 Aug 2015 23:10:07
Supposed to be Yandle to Dallas for Oleksiak, Fiddler and a 1st rd pick. Sorry forgot the 1st. Now that's fair

16 Aug 2015 07:58:11
Fiddler scored 12 goals last year so he's not useless
