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.

02 May 2017 04:39:23
SKA also acquired the rights for Kucherov as well. Kucherov still has 2 more seasons left on contract while Yak is a RFA. Interesting.

02 May 2017 04:48:45
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.

02 May 2017 18:08:00
How is someone disagreeing with my second comment here. Those rights aqcuasitions ACTUALLY happened. Lol!

02 May 2017 21:31:29
You could say Penguins won the cup last year and people will disagree.

03 May 2017 09:55:56
no way Penguins win cup last year.

29 Apr 2017 05:15:02
NY Islanders: John Tavares
Edmonton Oilers: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Jesse Puljujarvi, 1st Round Pick.

Montreal Canadiens: Alex Galchenyuk
Edmonton Oilers: Tyler Benson, Laurent Brossoit, 2nd Round Pick, Mark Letestu.

NY Rangers: Rick Nash
Edmonton Oilers: Tyler Pitlick, Benoit Pouliot.

Sign Kevin Shattenkirk, Kris Versteeg ( he doesn't wanna be in calgary)

Projected Lines:

Patrick Maroon-Connor McDavid-Leon Draisaitl
Drake Caggiula-John Tavares-Jordan Eberle
Milan Lucic-Alex Galchenyuk-Rick Nash
Kris Versteeg-David Desharnais-Zack Kassian

Oscar Klefbom-Kevin Shattenkirk
Andrej Sekera-Adam Larsson
Darnell Nurse-Kris Russell

29 Apr 2017 12:26:29
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?

02 Apr 2017 09:57:24
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.

02 Apr 2017 04:19:56
Imo Toronto should acquire a top 6 enstablished LW to round out there top 6

Tor: Hyman/Connor brown,Carrick/Dermotte,and 2017 1st

Colorado: Landekog

It's not Colorados asking price but after his horrific season imo this is all he'd get. Still a better return then what Kessel got and Kessel>>>>Landy (Age and Contract considered.)

Or a cheap option would be


Leafs:Leivo and 2nd

Imo Nash would fit well along side Mathews. Rangers would do it for cap reasons.

02 Apr 2017 09:53:57
I don't think Toronto should be trading their 1st round pick or travis dermotte.

I think the rick Nash idea would be better. Less Toronto has to give up.

02 Apr 2017 15:45:10
Far too much from the Leafs for a player whose production has been in a steady decline for the past 4 seasons.

02 Apr 2017 20:22:53
and we will never take nash he said toronto was a fishbowl.

31 Mar 2017 20:06:35
NYR: Mika Zibanejad, 2nd 2018
OTT: Derrick Brassard, 7th 2018.

31 Mar 2017 20:57:08
NYR fans are pretty high on ZIBBY. They feel he will be their 2nd line center moving forward. ZIBBY is 23 and Brassard is 29 both centers and both put up similar numbers.

Brassard Makes 5 mil for two more years then is UFA

ZIBBY makes 2.65 and is RFA next year.

ALL in ALL with age, pay, production, and RFA/ contract years left i would say that OTT is heavily favored in this trade and that Zibby holds the most Value. I would not make this trade.

31 Mar 2017 21:26:14
this trade literally happened during the summer.

31 Mar 2017 21:43:13
I thought it was a joke but the first response took it as legit. It did happen lol.

31 Mar 2017 22:22:17
Lol. Has that ever happened before? . A reverse trade so to speak? .
And uh. ya . Rangers say nope.

31 Mar 2017 22:44:25
i thought it was a trade back that was being posted?

06 Mar 2017 18:52:56
Leafs: JVR and Bracco

Rangers: Kriender and Nash

Who adds? Helps rangers cap wise and give the leafs a new presance they could use with kriender and Nash.

06 Mar 2017 20:26:46
why would leafs want nash and his bad contract.

06 Mar 2017 20:47:33
Besides cap, makes no sense for rangers.

06 Mar 2017 21:14:58
It's Kreider* but no from Rangers.

06 Mar 2017 22:28:17
WE DON'T WANT NASH he said tor was a fishbowl so no way from tor.

28 Feb 2017 17:44:01
Wings: Smith

Rangers: 2nd + 3rd


28 Feb 2017 18:11:09
So Happy as a Wings Fan! I was expecting only a 3rd maybe 2nd at best because of the market but both!

Great deal for my Red Wings! Let the fire sale commence! We're going to tank hopefully to get the highest pick possible.

Rangers do get an offensive gritty Dman which will definitely help. Good luck with the Rangers Smith!

28 Feb 2017 18:46:32
Awful move by the Rangers. Smith is not a good player.

28 Feb 2017 05:39:06

To Arizona
2017 3rd
To Rangers

To Colorado
2017 4th
To Toronto

To Detroit
2017 2nd (Conditional)
To Montreal
Pouliot (20perc ret)

To Edmonton
2017 4th

28 Feb 2017 06:50:27
Doan and Iggy will get more then that.

28 Feb 2017 15:18:14
I can see Doan and Iggy being about right.

No comment on the Detroit player. never heard of him?

Undervaluation on Pouliot. No to retention and roster player back worth 2 - 4 mill required to attain him at the deadline.
Pfffft. paltry 4th in a weak draft for a top 6'er with term left. AND retention. hahahaha. NOT!

28 Feb 2017 16:52:14
Pouliot has never been a top 6 forward in his career and with that salary and horrible season he ain't worth even a 3 rounder. If retain I'd give maybe a 6 Rd pick but that's it.

28 Feb 2017 18:13:37
Sheahan would be lucky to get a 2nd. He has low value right now. Big body but hasn't been able to produce offensively.
Detroit would be lucky to get anything at this point but if he turns it around then her may be worth something. Young enough to have room to do so.

28 Feb 2017 05:30:24
To Rangers

To Detroit
2017 3rd

01 Mar 2017 07:29:46
Almost got that one right.

28 Feb 2017 00:01:35
Read that Pittsburgh and Washington are in a bidding war for Shattenkirk.
And that Washington is only in it to drive up the price for rivals Pittsburgh and NYR.

28 Feb 2017 02:22:16
Yeah mike commodore was saying that.

28 Feb 2017 02:38:59
Blues beat writer just said deal is done between blues caps waiting for details.

28 Feb 2017 02:43:54
Shattenkirk to Washington is already a done deal via multiple sources.

28 Feb 2017 02:53:28
Damnnnnnnnn Washington Wow.

28 Feb 2017 03:07:34
1st 2nd and a prospect.

28 Feb 2017 03:08:10
Zach Ranford, 1st 2017 and 2nd 2018 it's looking like.

26 Feb 2017 19:43:52
Cap trade.....Nash and Klein and picks/prospects to toronto for Laich and Greening.

Reasoning is both ranger players have another year remaining on there contracts totalling almost 11 million. Both leaf contracts expire this year and can be buried in the minors. Frees up cap space for the rangers to ultimately sign Shatty. Both Nash and Kleins contracts would expire before the leafs have to start paying there young players.

26 Feb 2017 20:16:07
That's literally two of their top players, for two ahl'ers. Don :/ come on man.

26 Feb 2017 21:08:02
MjC, yeah its a horribke trade, but Klein has played pretty damn bad this year. On of their top players? Not really, lmao. (I get what you mean tho dw)

26 Feb 2017 21:12:58
Klein has been benched recently and Nash is crippling there cap. They beed to dump salary to sign anyone. If klein is one of there best players they are in trouble.

26 Feb 2017 21:23:32
Oh yea. the rangers also have to resign zibanejad as well.

26 Feb 2017 23:37:35
I really would like to see what you guys think Nash at 7.8 mill this year and next is worth. He and Klein are the only remotely movable contracts on the team. And the only teams I can see who can absorb nash's contract are the leafs and the hurricanes as they have the cap room and are somewhat competitive.

27 Feb 2017 00:01:06
All I'm saying is rangers could get a way better offer. This is horrible return.

27 Feb 2017 00:56:41
I thought Klein was one of there best D? And I can't remember what his contract is but it's not bad as it? And if you want to use Oil fan logic then it's Nash and Klein for Shattenkirk and they don't get any of them for playoffs. Just a bad trade.

26 Feb 2017 18:20:48
So in my opinion shattenkirk wants to go to rangers. And i think they should pursue him now instead of in the off season in free agency so this won't be a rental trade.

Blues: Shattenkirk

Rangers: Miller + 1st + Skjei

Definitely fits what Blues want in return if he's not a rental. Just hopefully the cap would work out if he signed for 6mil.

26 Feb 2017 18:29:21
Sadly enough I think he might get more than $6M a year. He has said he wants to go to north eastern states basically. Boston, NYR and Philly are the teams I think he's after. The only way he gets more than $6M is if there is two teams that want him. If only one of those teams want him there isn't a "bidding war" then he might not get offered more. Will be interesting tho. I don't think he's worth $6M a year especially for 7 years.

26 Feb 2017 19:23:49
He's not going to Philly so rule the northeast team out. Flyers will be dumping defenseman, not trading for.

26 Feb 2017 19:30:04
Why is he not worth 6mil+ a year he is on pace for 57 points this year. That makes him top 5 in

Mcjesus I think you have made a fair offer for extended shatty.

26 Feb 2017 19:34:58
No from Rangers, we will just "steal" him as FA!

26 Feb 2017 19:40:31
I think that's too much and just overall not a smart move. I read Skej is playing well and is only going to get better. When's the last time a player got that kind of return? I just don't see it but you never know.

26 Feb 2017 21:38:32
Ebs did you see the return Larson got.

26 Feb 2017 23:11:20
Some executives have said Shattenkirk isn't even a top 4 because he is so bad 5on5 and defensively. I still think he is a second pairing myself, but isn't very good 5on5 or defensively at all. Yes he puts up points but still not worth $6M a year for 7 years. Maybe $6M sure, but for like 3 or 4 years. Not 5-7 years. $5M 6/ 7 years sure maybe. Not more than $6M for more than 5 years. But he will get it on the open market as most Top UFAs get overpaid as we know.

26 Feb 2017 23:18:57
For extended yeah that's a good offer, but shattenkirk should 100% not make more than 6mil. He's not an elite defender he's a one way power play specialist. If you look at defenseman making over 6mil they are all bonified all stars. Shattenkirk isn't. He's good but he's one dimensional. Some gms think he's a 4-5 dman. I don't agree but.

26 Feb 2017 05:11:34
To Pitts

To Colorado
2017 6th
To Montreal

To Arizona
2017 1st
2018 2nd(WSH)
To Rangers

To Detroit
2017 1st

To Arizona
2017 2nd

26 Feb 2017 05:20:29
Don't think Pitt will do that
Arizona wants more
Good trade for rangers/ Detroit
Good for Arizona.

26 Feb 2017 19:44:20
No from Rangers, we need the prospects more than Vanek!

24 Feb 2017 01:52:58
To nyr: Johnny Oduya (50% retained)

To dal: Jesper Fast

21 Feb 2017 02:50:12
Bruins give - krug , mcquid, 3rd
Rangers give - Brady skjei

Bruins get- young big two way defender

Rangers get - combo of a offensive defender and defensive defender and high pick just in case those two players do t work out


18 Feb 2017 23:21:13

To Detroit

19 Feb 2017 00:07:43
Detroit does not have the cap space.

19 Feb 2017 00:44:36
They could make it work with their LTIR funds. 14.6m In four players. By they way it looks, Franzen and Vitale are the ones activated only.

19 Feb 2017 05:14:02
But in the long run they don't want Nash's contract.

16 feb 2017 23:20:14
bruins give - 3rd rounder - mcquid
rangers give- chris krieder

bruins get - big power forward who could be another milan lucic ( hitter / top scorer )

rangers get big defensive defender who can stick up for his team but needed and put the puck a few times here and there

let me know your thoughts if i should add or take away or if i'm way off don't be an ass about it

17 Feb 2017 02:07:17
Seems fair.

17 Feb 2017 03:57:05
Bruins add something of significance. Mcquaid is a warrior, I like how he plays but to get a top 6 power winger who can flat out fly and score, a third rounder doesn't cut it. Rangers can't trade one of their best 3 or 4 forwards for a guy to be a 5th D. Playing style fits both ways, but pick needs to be a 1st to make rangers think and even then I'm not sure.

17 Feb 2017 03:59:50
Boston already has David Backes to fill that role . theoretically.

17 Feb 2017 05:02:29
Rangers do not do this!

17 Feb 2017 06:55:46
Would be crazy to have a younger cheaper version I guess.

17 Feb 2017 09:00:42
Not even close.

17 Feb 2017 23:27:09
Jesus you guys underate kriender it would take a 1st and a prospect for the rangers to consider imo.

10 Feb 2017 15:10:15
3 Way Trade Proposal

NYRangers Trade
RNash (Tor)
Holden (Stl)
1st Round Pick 2017 (Stl)

St.Louis Trades
Shattenkirk (Nyr)

Toronto Trades
Soshnikov (Nyr)
Dermott (AHL)(Stl)

Trade Breakdown.

RNash, Holden, 1st Round Pick 2017
-Soshnikov, Shattenkirk

-Holden, Dermott, 1st Round Pick 2017

Soshnikov, Dermott

Thoughts ?

10 Feb 2017 19:11:21
Not sure soshnikov is worth much.

10 Feb 2017 19:55:28
so Tornoto adds nothing and gets nash.

NY gets to drop much needed salary, get rid of a crap dman and a 2017 1st which is only value added in this trade

Blues give up the #1 trade rental target for Two crap picks which i have stated several times we do not need average d prospects.

This is a no from blues.

10 Feb 2017 21:05:38
tor will never never take nash he called tor a fishbowl so he can get lost.

10 Feb 2017 21:46:53
Pinball has pinballs bouncing around in his head. I've figured out the name!
