Ottawa Trades: Jared Cowen, 2nd OR 3rd
Boston Trades: Loui Erikson
Fair or naw?
29 Aug 2015 16:09:17
I don't see whyBoston would be interest in Cowen. He hasn't showed much and Bs need puck moving D not stay at home slow useless Defenceman.
29 Aug 2015 22:58:26
Makes no sense on either side. It's way too much to give for Ericsson and BOS doesn't really want a guy like Cowen
31 Aug 2015 13:52:48
I do like the trade! Yes its a lot for Erikson, but its worth dumping money? And Chara doesn't have much years left, Boychuk and Hamilton are gone, Cowen would be an, I believe, respectable addition, and you add a second in there so ya!
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.
26 Aug 2015 13:41:49
OTT: Bobby Ryan, 2nd, 3rd
PHI: Wayne Simmonds
26 Aug 2015 17:50:18
Ottawa wants more back than just simmonds and some later picks. does Philly even have the cap space to take on 7.25M?
26 Aug 2015 18:02:30
Ryan is more valuable than simmons
27 Aug 2015 06:15:23
simmonds is easily worth more than ryan. same production, same age, half the price.
and philly says no, they don't need another overaid forward.
26 Aug 2015 05:05:05

26 Aug 2015 05:43:27
Jackets want to improve there d not make it worse
26 Aug 2015 08:07:32
You're going to have to come up with something better than that if you want Ottawa to take Clarkson.
26 Aug 2015 14:00:35
Clarkson at 3 mil is not that bad. Also CBJ would decline IMO. They need Johnson more then anyone they get back and paying Clarkson 2.25mil for the next 5 years.
29 Aug 2015 15:53:57
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOL never happening!
25 Aug 2015 13:56:03

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

Boston Trades: Kevan Miller, 2016 4th
Edmonton Trades: Andrew Ference
Boston Trades: Jeremy Smith
Buffalo Trades: 2017 4th
Boston Signs Tim Thomas to 1 year deal, he retires here after the season and Mcintyre and Subban's roles in the organization will be more clear at that point.
25 Aug 2015 14:16:26
I'd rather keep Baertschi and a 2nd over Erikson and a 3rd as a Canucks fan.
25 Aug 2015 16:10:50
Thomas that old hag?! I didn't even know he was still alive!
25 Aug 2015 16:47:54
Krejci can get more alone.
25 Aug 2015 20:29:51
You have Smith centering two lines.
22 Aug 2015 17:38:43
Ottawa trades Bobby Ryan, Wierchoch and a 2nd rd pick to Edmonton for Jordan Eberle
22 Aug 2015 22:22:13
22 Aug 2015 22:32:35
If rather just keep Eberle. I think Ryan is overrated
22 Aug 2015 22:35:05
That would be a steal for edm. I highly doubt Ottawa does this
23 Aug 2015 02:57:13
I like this one actually. Nice
21 Aug 2015 15:35:57
to Buff: Dennis Seidenberg(4M)

Bruins get a couple later rnd picks and frees up some more cap space.
to Bos: Patrick Wiercioch

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.

ex: Irwin/Colin Miller
21 Aug 2015 18:01:32
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.
20 Aug 2015 21:14:04
This is only a possibility for Ottawa if for whatever reason Ladd and the Jets can't agree to terms and Winnipeg has no other choice but to trade Andrew and get a return for him rather than letting him walk.
LW - Milan Michalek $4.00
RW - Alex Chiasson $1.20
D - Frederik Claesson $0.600
2nd Round Draft Pick 2016

Byfuglien - Trouba
Enstrom - Myers
Stuart - Chiarot
Harrison, Postma, Clitsome, Pardy
Pavelec - Hutchinson
21 Aug 2015 07:58:34
You should be giving up a first, not a second. In my opinion. Or add a higher add propsect from Ottawa like Matt Puempel & a second or a first.
21 Aug 2015 16:59:11
Jets would look elsewhere, no interest in that deal and Ladd on your 3rd line is laughable
21 Aug 2015 21:49:48
@el troubadour, your response is laughable. Acquiring a Middle 6 fwd(Michalek) a bottom 6 fwd(Chiasson) a near NHL ready prospect(Claesson) and a Second round pick is pretty substantial for a guy who has never cracked 30 goals in his career. Obviously he brings intangibles to the table like leadership and grit that you have to factor in to his trade value as well.
If hypothetically this trade were to happen, Ladd being a LW, slotting him in on the third line isn't out of this world. Hoffman scored 27 goals on mostly playing on the third and fourth lines this past season with next to no PP time. MacArthur his a comparable player to Ladd and he already has quite a bit of chemistry with Turris already.
29 Aug 2015 11:25:43
If they can't resign him why would ottawa possibly get burned if laad dosnt really sign with them and for what they'd have to trade for him I just don't think it's worth the risk
20 Aug 2015 18:10:44
to NYI: Dennis Seidenberg & Kevan Miller
to BOS: 2016 2nd rnd pick 2017 3rd rnd pick
NYI gets 2nd and 3rd pairing shut down defensemen and toughness and the bruins get some future draft picks and frees up 4.7 M in cap space. and the NYI have the space to take it on.
to Bos: Bobby Ryan
to Ott: Chris Kelly (Bos retains 1M), Loui Eriksson, and 2016 2nd rnd pick 2017 3rd rnd pick(picks from NYI trade)
BOS gets top scoring winger who's signed to a deal already and can heopfully re-find the scoring touch playing with krecji. Sens get mentor and PK vet Chris Kelly (who'd love to return to ott) and can be resigned for much less and retire in OTT. they also get loui eriksson whos scoring has been on par with ryans the last couple years but brings a better defensive presesnce to the game. and the sens get some decent picks. both eriksson and kelly can be resigned for less than BR contract value.
toBOS: Morgan reiley and roman polak
to tor: Austin Czarnik, Seth griffith, Joe Morrow and 2017 3rd pick
Bos gets stay home dman in polak and good potential up and comer in reiley.leafs get good C prospect nhl ready dman and nhl winger on the cheap side of the cap and a pick for the rebuild.
to Bos" Shattenkirk
to STL: Subban, Zach trotman, brett connolly, 2017 1st rnd pick
bos gets potential #1 dman to take over for chara. stl louis get top tier prospect goalie, 2nd/3rd line winger on a cheap deal, an nhl ready dman who can play 2nd pair mins for 800k amd a 1st rnd pick.
Bos line up
ex irwin, c miller, arnesson
20 Aug 2015 19:57:42
All 3 favor Boston heavily, none of those is close.
20 Aug 2015 20:03:41
1. Not sure if Isles have the cap or desire to take on that much. It would be a trade deadline deal depending on where the team is at.
2. Ottawa would probably rather keep Bobby Ryan in this deal.
3. Leafs fans will hate you for this. You probably have to start with Pastrnak+++ to get Morgan Reily.
4. St.Louis doesn't really need Subban with Allen & Elliot. The other pieces just aren't wow for them so they pass for sure.
20 Aug 2015 20:05:45
Im pretty sure we still have a few months to go until April fools there man.
20 Aug 2015 20:19:02
Morgan Reilly is going nowhere!
20 Aug 2015 21:16:50
"Morgan Reilly is going nowhere!" That's why he is where he is.
20 Aug 2015 21:48:16
i actually think the value in the trade is pretty good for shattenkirk. one really good prospect, two decent ones, and a first st louis could do a lot worse.
as for the leafs trade that horrible value for them. They believe Rielly will be a top two dman in a couple of years. And a trade for him wouldn't start with Pastrnak because the leafs are pretty well stocked with smaller really skilled wingers they need solid young guys on d like rielly to even out their team.
21 Aug 2015 03:04:23
Well Reilly isn't going to the plyoffs if that's what you meant @bgdaddycool
21 Aug 2015 08:00:41
Funny how you get a pretty good first liner (Bobby Ryan), a player of top piairing capabilities (Shattenkirik) and pssibly a savior at defence for Toronto (Rielly) without giving up anything,
19 Aug 2015 21:19:56
Just heard the Habs might trade Andrighetto to Ottawa, Tokarski to Pittsburgh,Boston, or Toronto and that Habs might trade Eller or Desharnais to Edmonton, Winnipeg, Carolina, Ottawa and Florida. Also heard that Habs are one of two team interested in acquiring Eric Staal from the Hurricanes. Ottawa is also interested. Also they are interested in acquiring Andrew Ladd from the jets, so are the Blackhawks, the Senators, the Penguins and the Bruins so all to say that there could be a couple of moves by the Habs before the start of the regular season. So, who would you prefer? I'd prefer Ladd to Staal because he has a smaller cap hit, had more points than Staal last season, make room for Chucky to play Center and fill the void that the Habs had offensively which was a number 2 Left-Winger. Then, the Habs Send Alexei Emelin to another team for a third round pick.
19 Aug 2015 23:15:19
That's the 3rd team Andrighetto is getting traded to.
19 Aug 2015 23:19:33
Exactly where did you hear this bs. Why would Edmonton want a center. Is mcdavid, nuegent Hopkins, draisaitl, lander, letestu not good enough?
19 Aug 2015 23:43:42
Lol! Why the hell would Edmonton want DD or Eller?
20 Aug 2015 01:26:56
Yeeaahh. Sure. Then trade Juuleson & Scherbak for Mcdavid right?
I know for a fact Oilers, Jets and Sens would have no interest in DD/Eller.
Btw Ladd will not be traded unless Winnipeg is out of playoff contention and it would have to be a big overpayment. He's a good veteran leader, their captain and heart and soul guy.
20 Aug 2015 03:12:40
mtl emelin-eller-andrighetto -2nd pick 2016
20 Aug 2015 10:48:25
Bruins: Hall, Yakupov, Klefbom
Oilers: Chara, Eriksson, Subban, 2016 1st, 2016 3rd
Bruins gets offence now and tomorrow (to rebuild on)
B's sign Franson + Gleason
Oilers gets crucial D + mentor (along w Sekara), solid offence + prospect balance (opens up a shot at the cup sooner than people believe)
20 Aug 2015 12:55:01
I'd take out the 2016 1st and add Koko instead and see if that flies. does EDM have the cap space to take on another 3.5M?
why do the Bruins sign Gleason?
20 Aug 2015 17:17:49
Ok so a top 5 left winger in the league, a former first overall draft pick who still has tons of potential and an up and coming defense prospect who could be a top 2 for an old defenseman who is only getting worse, an old inconsistent winger, a decent goalie prospect and a first
Hall >>>>>>>>>>>>> Erikson
And Yakupov (and his potential) > first round pick, third round pick
No chance Edmonton says yes
20 Aug 2015 20:30:56
See your point @Oil but since.
Subban >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> nada
. the deal is more fair!
20 Aug 2015 20:34:41
Hall > Eriksson + 3rd
21 Aug 2015 05:05:39
Forgot about subban, still deal not close to being fair
19 Aug 2015 13:56:54
to Bos: Zack Smith & 5th rnd pick
to Ott: Chris Kelly and Max Talbot
Bos get's younger gritty 4th line piece and Ott gets PK abilities and leadership of Chris kelly and Max talbot.
to Bos: Adam Larsson
to NJD: Koko, D Seidenberg, Kevan Miller, 2016 3rd rnd pick
Boston gets an "unknown" commodity in the RH shot defence man in Larsson who could prosper. Devils get nhl ready young speedy centre in koko, 3nd pairing toughness in K miller. good shutdown presence that can play 20 mins/game in seidenberg and they also get a draft pick.
to Bos: Taylor Hall and Nail Yakopov
to Edm: Loui Eriksson, 2017 1st rnd pick, Brian Ferlin, Malcom Subban
Bos gets top line LW (hall) and 2nd/3rd line rw (yak) who needs some mentoring under bergeron. EDm gets 1st round pick, a soon to be ready nhl winger (ferlin) top line lw winger in eriksson who can mentor the younger kids and bring a defensive presence to the edm game. and they get the goalie of the future in subban (who PC picked himself).
Bos would look like:
19 Aug 2015 14:10:26
All trades favour Boston of course.
19 Aug 2015 14:24:57
how do they all favour Boston? there's good pieces going to both sides for various reasons. you need to think beyond someones name and cap it and think about what some teams need in their lineup and locker rooms.
19 Aug 2015 14:58:22
That Edmonton one doe. Two 1st overal picks for 'not a top line winger' in eriksson, a 1st which would 'likely 'be a playoff pick and its in 2 years and Subban I doubt will be an elite goalie.Cant comment on Ferlin don't know who he is. Also I doubt NJ gves up on Larsson for that. I think the 1st one is pretty good though.
19 Aug 2015 15:58:40
Absolutely not from edmontkn
19 Aug 2015 18:27:38
Ridiculously one sided.
19 Aug 2015 21:09:05
Look at the Edmonton trade and think to yourself, does this trade even in the slightest benefit the oilers?
19 Aug 2015 21:33:14
The EDM one is by far the worst. This might get you Yakupov or half of Taylor Hal, but both? Lol.
20 Aug 2015 13:19:26
Yakupov has registered 88 pts in the last three season. eriksson has 113, and previous 3 to that 215 pts. so you really don't think PC is going to take a defensive player who scores better than Yakupov and plays a better all around game.
big edge to Eriksson there. then you have a 1st rnd pick, top tier goalie prospect (that PC selected himself in the 1st rnd) and a young serviceable 3rd line winger for Hall. and taking into account how lopsided an eriksson for yak trade would be I'd think this would balance out a bit.
but hey you guys are the professional GM's here.
instead of just trolling to slam everything that anyone puts up why don't you make recommended changes or just skip it all together.
20 Aug 2015 17:21:10
Will someone please get me some of what this guy is smoking ^^^^
20 Aug 2015 17:22:48
Rinaldo has more points than mcdavid. I guess that's a lob sided trade too. Boston would need draisaitl, mcdavid + for Rinaldo
20 Aug 2015 21:27:19
Yakupov has the potential to be a huge let down but also the potential to be a first line sniper. If your going to look at previous seasons Jagr would have more value then anyone!
21 Aug 2015 08:08:21
Hold on by that toronto shouldve traded Tyler Bozak before for McDavid, Draisital, Nurse & 10 First round Picks, Because they don't have as many points as Bozak. See how ridiculous you sound.
19 Aug 2015 09:30:51
NJD: Clowe, Merrill, Gavrus, 2016 condintional 2nd(becomes 1st if Devils make the playoffs)
19 Aug 2015 14:59:48
Woww This is BAAD sorry man but damn
19 Aug 2015 17:22:26
easy no from the sens not sure why they would ever do this.
20 Aug 2015 01:19:02
Probably bad trade for both teams. Ryan is overrated. Just a 50-60 point player. Ryan is not worth 7+ million for the next 6 years.
18 Aug 2015 06:15:35
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.
18 Aug 2015 18:10:04
Condition is if he resigns it's a first and he'll probably get more than 5 mil
15 Aug 2015 23:13:13
Ottawa trades Bobby Ryan, a 2nd rd pick and Matt Puempel to Vancouver for Radim Vrbata, Jordan Subban and Jake Virtanen
14 Aug 2015 23:50:54
NHL TRADE RUMOR: ERIC STAAL TO OTTAWA SENATORS
August 14, 2015image descriptionby The Hockey Press
Eric Staal - CAR
Player: Eric Staal
Possible NHL teams: • OTT • NSH • MIN
2015 Salary: 9.5M
Report: As of right now we're hearing that the Ottawa Senators have expressed interest in C Eric Staal. No other teams have shown that they are interested.
Carolina Hurricanes are in the midst of a rebuild, and by trading Eric Staal, they would be acquiring ( From what we are hearing ) a Blue Chip Prospect, 1st round draft pick, a roster player ETC.
PROPOSED TRADE (idea):
Carolina Hurricanes trade:
• Eric Staal ( Retained 2M )
• 4th round draft pick
Ottawa Senators for:
• Zack Smith
• Nicholas Paul
• Cole Schneider
• 1st round draft pick
• 3rd round draft pick
WHY THIS TRADE MAKES SENSE:
Carolina Hurricanes: CAR Would acquire Zack Smith a solid bottom 6 C, who can play in all situations. Nicholas Paul who was a draft pick steal. He is LW who is projected to be a Top 6 Forward, not bad for a 4th round draft pick. Cole Schneider who is strong player mentally. He isn't afraid of driving the net, most of his goals are deflections, tip-ins ETC. He is an excellent skater, and is projected to be an NHL Forward. They also get a 1st and 3rd to help the rebuild.
Ottawa Senators: The Ottawa Senators would acquire Eric Staal a 30 year old 6'4" Center (Lefty) playing for the Carolina Hurricanes. He played in multiple NHL all star games, but due to injury and lack of team performance he managed to acquire 23 goals and 31 assist in 77 games this season, a good total, but a low total compare to his previous performances, OTT also acquires a 4th round draft pick, and 2M of Eric Staal's contract retained.
If Eric Staal doesn't get traded before Free agent frenzy we would expect the Nashville Predators who need a star centre man and the Minnesota Wild who don't even know if they need a star center man to take a crack at him.
In the end this trade makes sense and would help both teams, but what do you think of the recent news? not at all my idea but thanks to the The Hockey Press
15 Aug 2015 06:07:54
Seems fair to me, maybe a bit of an overpayment as I see Staal just resigning in Carolina in the offseason but that's what it would probably take.
15 Aug 2015 06:22:57
Staal is due for a new contract, no guarantees it would be with Ottawa. Also, Nick Paul is in the trade for possibly a single year out of Staal? Me thinks not. And a 1st as well that could end up being in the top-10? I very much doubt this rumor has any legs at all if it truly is a rumor from The Hockey News.
15 Aug 2015 15:42:45
Oh I missed the 1st round pick in the trade. Drop the first then it's fair.

Too much for Staal. Way too much.
17 Aug 2015 08:27:27
I would say the trade should be:
CAR: E.Staal + 2017 3rd round draft pick
OTT: A.Chiasson + C.Greening + N.Paul + Conditional 2016 2nd round pick
* If Eric Staal resigns with Ottawa or the Sens make the Confrence finals then pick becomes a first in 2016.
17 Aug 2015 15:32:26
You know what I'll just make mine a 1st round pick
14 Aug 2015 15:47:52
Bos trades: Dennis Seidenberg, Max Talbot, Kevan Miller, 2016 2nd rnd pick
to Islanders for: Kyle Okposo (2.8M)
Isl's get established NHL 2nd pairing shut down dman in Seids grit on 3rd pairing with K miller and a 4th line centre/wing. and a good potential draft. cap hits work for both teams.
and B's get a good scorign RW
Bos sends Chris Kelly to OTT for Zack Smith
(Cap 3M for CK 1.85 for ZM) works for both teams
Sens get a great leader, 4th line centre and PK guy.
Bruins get tougnhess is Zack Smith for ther 4th line
Bos trades: Loui Eriksson, Brian Ferlin, Joe Morrow to Nash for Roman Josi
B's get a good left shot dman to take over top pairing when Chara retires.
Nash gets a great winger in eriksson, good D prospect in morrow and a good wing prospect in ferlin.
Bos: Connolly, Koko, Zach Trotman, 2017 1st rnd pick
STL: Kevin Shattenkirk
STL gets a boat load for shattenkirk
and B's get good rh shot dman for top pairing. (cap hit KS 4.25/Bos total value 2M so STL gets some relief and great prospects)
Bruins trade: Subban, seth griffith, Matt Iwin, 2nd rnd pick
toronto sends JVR to Bos
bos gets great scoring winger, leafs as part of rebuild get great prospect golaie, a pick and good nhl ready winger and solid 3rd pairing dman. and still leaves BOS after all is said and done with approx 2M in cap space with only Okposo to resign the following season.
14 Aug 2015 16:22:30
Not even close for Josi and Shattenkirk.
14 Aug 2015 16:26:26
burnsy, I've seen this and your comment about Weber down a bit. You are so way off man. LaLa land over there. Most of your stuff is so bad for the other teams.
14 Aug 2015 16:34:53
Obvious you're a Bruins fan, all trades favour Bruins big time.
That Josi deal is easily the worst trade of the month wow. This is why I said Bruins fans are becoming the new leaf fans, because of posts like these.
Easy no from NYI(Even though pending UFA it'll cost way more then that for Okposo)
No from STL / TOR(JVR and Shat could bring back better quality then what you offered)
Idk about the OTT deal.
& Nashville blocks Bostons number.
14 Aug 2015 17:03:54
You managed to get 2 top pairing defensman and 2 1st maybe 2nd line wingers without giving up anything substantial. Seem a little too good to be fair?
14 Aug 2015 17:23:31
As a bruins fan, Please god let these teams take these deals. small things about the deals make them a no go though. Like for instance, the bruins just signed matt irwin last month. why would they sign him just to turn around and trade him? That sends a bad message to other free agents who would ever think about coming here.
14 Aug 2015 21:52:24
There are more than small things that are wrong with the deals lol
14 Aug 2015 21:55:42
I can't defend this
14 Aug 2015 23:12:47
BJ96 Sens wouldn't except either I wouldn't think. I'm sure they wouldn't want to get older and more cap
15 Aug 2015 00:44:44
people have to start to realise on this site that sending a lot of decent prospects doesn't bring back a star player. In these trades boston is getting guys with good contracts, that are young, and are proven producers at the nhl level without giving up the type of prospects it would take to get players of that caliber. Josi, shattenkirk, jvr would all take hefty packages that would need to blow their respected teams away in order to be moved.
if I was a gm trading one of those guys I would want one or two amazing pieces then three or four or more ok ones.
15 Aug 2015 07:16:00
To meet all the 'imo' unlikely proposals to trade any of Bergy, Marchy or Krejci. a list of the only really likely players to be traded (this late) from the B's for various reasons: (Thoughts. and who could come in from a trade with any of these??)
+ Any one from providence or pick, but they are in my eyes heavily depending on all higher picked talents this draft and next year.
16 Aug 2015 08:10:54
The first two weren't bad but then the rest of it was absolute garbage to my eyes
16 Aug 2015 08:16:58
I do want to change up your BOS-NYI trade:
BOS: Seidenberg (850K ret), Miller, Talbot, Connolly, conditional 2016 2nd and a 2016 5th.
NYI: Okposo, & de Haan.
* Condition is that if Okposo signs then the pick becomes a first.
The reason I added Connolly an de Haan is because this gives the Isles a player who can play RW and it helps the Bruins bring in a new defencemen to help kick off this inevitable rebuild they're going to do.
12 Aug 2015 09:31:44
3rd round pick
2nd round pick
Anaheim has 3 goalies
St Louis trades:
12 Aug 2015 10:21:19
So Stl will have 3 goalies?
12 Aug 2015 10:58:07
Ottawa values Cici a lot. Pretty sure they wouldn't do that trade.
Anaheim isn't trading F.Anderson just yet.
12 Aug 2015 18:41:14
Anahiem has 3 goalies.
Edmonton has 3 goalies.
12 Aug 2015 09:28:36
this will never happen knowing the sedins will retire as canucks but
3rd round pick
12 Aug 2015 10:59:14
Hahahaha! Not a chance Ottawa does that. Wow!
Jesus, 3 good young players for two older guys with at best a few years left. Wow!
12 Aug 2015 21:52:27
No not to Ottawa. Vancouver may trade the Sedins but it will be to a better team than Ottawa.
13 Aug 2015 04:44:56
@Yep, that's very true.
Sedins would be Ottawas best 2 forwards tho
Canucks will never get fair value back for the twins (Age, Salary, Won't waive NTC clause etc), that's why they'll retire in Van City. They still are great players and I seem them still being solid top 6 forwards till they call it quits.
08 Aug 2015 05:42:17
To cgy: -mike hoffman
- 4th round pick
To ottawa: -markus granlund
- 3 rd round pick
Why? Cgy needs a second line lw. Before u say "oh we are super deep", ask yourself. is bouma or byron or raymond second line material.
Cgy gives up the higher pick to give the balance a boost and also gets rid of raymond.
I don't know how Ottawa's lineup looks. I don't know what they're needs are so none of the old "do you even watch hockey". because I do. Granlund can play centre or wing.
