26 Jul 2016 15:44:49
There is no way Chicago does this.

26 Jul 2016 15:45:18
No from both. Imo toews is the better player, but he has a higher salary and the pens are already right up against the cap.

26 Jul 2016 19:47:22
Lol Toews could have been drafted by Pitt but instead took Jordan Staal. Like just imagine Crosby Toews Malkin on one team . My god.

26 Jul 2016 21:15:44
I'd take Geno over Toews if I'm building a team. Toews is great an all but he's only the 3rd best player on the team. Although now that I mention it so is Geno.

26 Jul 2016 22:13:46
Toews is a leader kinda like moose in the day always not gunna be the best player on the team but when u need him he is there that's a qualityyou won't find in this new corsi crap.

26 Jul 2016 23:21:26
Man if you get the option to take Toews you literally shouldn't even need to think about it. Toews > Geno come on guys.

27 Jul 2016 02:26:38
Can you please explain this. You'd take the 50-60 point player two player over the PPG offensive juggernaut?

23 Jul 2016 07:43:23
Who thinks a Niemi ++ to Pittsburgh for Fleury + Kunitz would be good, Kunitz added for cap cause obviously burgh needs cap space.

Niemi 3.2mil
Fleury 5.75mil
Kunitz 3.85mil

Something like

- Niemi
- Nichushkin
- Honka
- Fleury
- Kunitz.

23 Jul 2016 08:00:23
Pitts hundo p take that. Get younger, lose cap, very good deal for Pitt imo. Is Dallas willing to give all that up tho? Depends how desperate they get for a goalie, but I think for sure Pitt takes that.

23 Jul 2016 08:13:10
No I highly doubt Dallas does that they could get Bishop for that.

23 Jul 2016 08:40:29
Oh forsure they could get bishop for that, but this specific trade Pitt would obviously take it.

23 Jul 2016 08:51:27
They could get bishop for that for sure but would prolly nerf to take back more cap as Tampa is in very big cap trouble that they are willing to trade Kucherov which is none sense if the rumour of him is true

23 Jul 2016 09:08:21
There's no trade rumour of Kucherov, it is actually just the Islanders interested in trading for him. Tampa never said he was up for trade just to clarify, because i Agree that's insane if they want to trade him.

23 Jul 2016 14:14:02
The Tampa trading Kuch rumour is coming from ESPN that listed 10 of at the time 15 remaining RFA as RFA that could be traded. Trading him is an interesting option but Yzerman has said nothing other than they want/ expect to get a deal done.

23 Jul 2016 14:23:30
Niemi > Kunitz
Nichushkin/Honka > Fleury

23 Jul 2016 15:54:55
Just stop it right now. Kucherov won't be traded. 0%. Tampas best offensice player.

23 Jul 2016 21:54:50
Not a bad trade but I'd rather offer this to Tampa first for Bishop.
Nuke >> Kunitz
Neimi+Honka =.

23 Jul 2016 22:25:33
Tampas best offensive player? Don't they have stamkos I think he scored 60 goals a few seasons ago.

24 Jul 2016 01:25:41
Kucherov > Stamkos

Nothing against Stammer but he's a shell of his former self and won't score 50 goals again.

23 Jul 2016 07:21:46
PIT gets
Kasperi Kapanen
Kyle Wood
2017 3rd Round Pick (ARI)
ARI gets
Marc-Andre Fleury
Joffrey Lupul
Toronto gets
Mike Smith (25% Retained) (2x Seasons)
Chris Kunitz

Toronto gets an older but still playable backup goalie that they probably won't lose in the expansion but that's okay. They rid lupul and get a veteran winger in Kunitz. Being beside Crosby and Malkin almost his whole career would be good mentoring.
Pittsburgh gets rid of Fleury for a decent prospect in Kapanen and in my opinion a really good D prospect in Wood, and a pick.
Arizona gets that desperately needed younger number 1 goalie who has a few cups under his belt and gold medals. And get a needed winger, not very good but still useful.

A name like Marc Andre Fleury would bring more fans to Arizona. Everyone wins.

23 Jul 2016 07:32:48
This is actually one of the best trades I've seen on the site and it makes sense

23 Jul 2016 07:33:34
I love it!

23 Jul 2016 07:35:08
I like the trade. Not sure if it feels pittsburghs needs or Toronto but I like the idea and I'm sure fleury would make zona a better team and would actually bring a lot of fans back

23 Jul 2016 07:40:45
Pretty weak offer for Fleury and Kunitz and why trade back Kapanen when Pitt traded him to Toronto lol. I also can't see Arizona wanting Lupul. And put some spacing in there johnny! Make it easier for me lol.

23 Jul 2016 07:43:52
Lol ^

23 Jul 2016 07:46:45
I had no idea Kapanen was on pittsburgh

23 Jul 2016 08:01:33
He was drafted by them rememberrrr.

23 Jul 2016 08:16:48
This makes no sense for Toronto I'd rather have Datsyuks contract then Smiths terrible trade maybe Kappnen for Perlini swap tho.

23 Jul 2016 19:58:11
Toronto gives up a good B+ level prospect, and a dump (which they could easily throw on LTIR) for 2 dumps with more money and more term? In what world does this make sense?

20 Jul 2016 23:32:08
EDM: YAK 2nd 2018


21 Jul 2016 01:54:57
Whaaaaat lol

21 Jul 2016 01:56:14
Letang + 2nd for McDavid.

21 Jul 2016 02:21:42
Lord Christ that is awful.

21 Jul 2016 02:30:03
you must be related to montrealsfinest.

21 Jul 2016 03:16:21
If this isn't a troll, you have absolutely no hockey knowledge, and this may be the most insulting post I have seen all month. (There is a lot of insulting posts each month)

21 Jul 2016 03:17:17
Terrible for Pitsburge and that dosent work cap wise this is just terribly thought out.

21 Jul 2016 03:40:57
hmm. i don't know about this. Edmonton might decline because Yakupov is just too much to give up.

21 Jul 2016 03:54:03
If we were to get Letang, Penguins would probably want Nurse + + .

21 Jul 2016 05:25:29
This guy is clearly a troll and either doesn't know anything or thinks it's funny putting up stupid stuff. So we should all not take him seriously.

21 Jul 2016 06:28:43
Why do I have an unbelievable? I said the same thing as everyone else.

21 Jul 2016 08:19:18
Why doesn't it work cap wise? ^.

21 Jul 2016 12:28:41
You guys overestimate LETANG, s value going forward and YAK would be a good player on a different team.

21 Jul 2016 14:19:56
No don't try to defend yourself, terrible offer. Letang is pens best d, they are not trading him unless they get another top d in return (which edm doesn't have) terrible trade. I guess that's why your name is couch gag.

21 Jul 2016 14:23:21
Oh my bad, I was blinded by your terrible post.

21 Jul 2016 23:50:32
Just see things differently I think LETANG is on the decline and the pens have a lot youth moving up on their blue line so trade him now before he get injuries too often as its been trending that way plus frees up some cash. I wasnt suggesting Yak would be the only piece I just wanted opinions. So thanks for yours.

18 Jul 2016 15:16:24
Dallas: honka, neimi (25%retained) 2017 3rd
Pittsburgh: fleury (if he'll accept)
Dallas gets their everyday starter, instead of splitting time, and pens get a little bit of cap relief, also they clear fleurys nmc, and pick up a backup and a nice prospect and a 3rd? Idk if it's too much, but imo the pens could sign a backup for cheaper on the fa market, so taking neimi is a bit of a favour.

18 Jul 2016 15:25:52
I really don't wanna lose Honka. but I really think they need Bishop or Fleury to get to the cup.

18 Jul 2016 16:10:46
I like it.

18 Jul 2016 16:48:39
I think Dallas will go for Bishop but this isn't bad either.

18 Jul 2016 17:10:13
Fleury does not have the best playoff stats. I would prefer Bishop if I were Dallas.

18 Jul 2016 17:18:12
if they got to give up Honka then go for Bishop. If they got to give up Oleksiak, Nemeth, etc then go for Fleury because I know either 1 of those 2 won't land Bishop but Honka in the package can.

17 Jul 2016 03:11:35
Toronto: JVR

Pittsburgh: Chris Kunitz, Parscal Dupuis, Derrick Pouliot and 2017 1st

This works cap wise (actually it helps Pitsburgh) and this seems like fair value this would put Pitsburgh over the top.




Fleury ( Trade Block )

Team Needs top 4 dman and a veteran bottom 6 forward.

17 Jul 2016 05:03:10
The fact you literally included Dupuis, really made me wonder if you're being serious on this post. Since you don't know he had to retire mid-season from his blood clots. So he can't play anymore.
So for that reason I'm going to say no.

17 Jul 2016 05:13:07
Breaking up the HBK line? 😱.

17 Jul 2016 05:25:10
McJesus I obviously know that but his contract is still running and is getting paid by the Penguins. He is just one less player to put on the LTIR and it benifits Pitsburgh because his contract is uninsured also yes I am Kessel wouldn't want to play 3rd line minutes.

17 Jul 2016 05:27:52
McJesus also did you ever hear of Chris Pronger, Nathen Horton and Mark Savard. They were all traded.

17 Jul 2016 05:37:43
Mcjessus bar down is close to Montreal finest in v stupid trades with exception he doesn't destroy the English language like mf'r does.

17 Jul 2016 05:55:22
Dupuis is on IR, don't think he counts against cap.

17 Jul 2016 06:35:50
Still they won't trade his contract away.

17 Jul 2016 15:29:40
Why wouldn't they it's an extra 3millon in cash they don't need to pay because his contract is uninsured and his contract counts against the 50 man roster.

17 Jul 2016 17:50:42
Also colt I wouldn't say that I don't think I'm to biased towards the Maple Leafs the only players I'm higher then everyone else on apperently is Bozak, Gardiner and Dymitro Timoshov.

17 Jul 2016 18:26:11
My point is if you knew how much Dupuis meant to that team even how he is not playing, you'd understand they will never trade him away. He's going to retire there. That's all I'm saying.

09 Jul 2016 15:00:28
Ott: Mike Hoffman ( 5mil 5 year contract )

Pits: Daniel Sprong or Derrick Pouliot, Chris Kunitz and 2017 1st

Hoffman would look insane along side Crosby/ Malkin he'd be a 30+ goal scorer easily.

09 Jul 2016 15:32:53
Overpayment for him.

09 Jul 2016 16:04:03
Overpayment? It's a garbage package the first is probably going to be a late first so it's whatever and the rest is lacking in quality.

09 Jul 2016 16:13:17
JF12 maybe make the pick a 2nd?

09 Jul 2016 18:51:26
@sens first off pittsburgh wouldn't do this theyd be in cap hell, and don't need another offense-only machine. don't overvalue your damn players, hoffmans one-dimensional af. sure he can score but that's about it. if kessel gets a cap dump + prospects + picks, this is good enough.

09 Jul 2016 19:56:56

Sprong and Pouliot are great prospects.

08 Jul 2016 03:32:09
Couple of trades/ signings I weren't mind the penguins making.

Trade #1
Penguins- Chris Kunitz,6th
Avalanche- Blake Comeau

Kunitz is still a decent 2 way player who can play on the 2nd line should fit in well with the Avalanche
Comeau play well with Malkin. he could play on his wing again and he is cheaper then Kunitz

Trade #2
Penguins- 3rd, 5th
Coyotes-Kyle Chipchura, Sergei Plotnikov

I know Plotnikov didn't workout his first time in the NHL but I think he can still become a top 6 or at least bottom 6 player if becomes a decent player he could play with Malkin and Comeau but at first he will be a fourth line player and for Chipchura he could be the Penguins 4th line centre but if Cullen doesn't retire there's no point to trade for Chipchura.

Trade #3
Penguins- 4th,7th
Hawks- Jordan Tootoo

I think that Tootoo could be a good player with the penguins he would be used on the 4th line playing with Chipchura and Plotnikov

Justin Shultz 2 years 2mill a year
Matt Cullen 1 year 1 mill
Sergei Plotnikov 2 years 750K two way contract

Hornquvist Crosby Sheary
Comeau Malkin Fehr
Hagelin Bonino Kessel
Plotnikov Chipchura Tootoo.

08 Jul 2016 06:17:31
So what you're saying is you want to trade assets away only for 3 guys to play on the fourth line? Uhh?

08 Jul 2016 11:20:59
Or or we don't touch the team since they just won a cup and start the season with that group and see what needs to be done as the season progresses.

08 Jul 2016 13:09:02
What do you guys not get, Chipchura is a UFA, he's not owned by the Coyotes anymore so why would the pens trade for him, just sign him.

03 Jul 2016 19:12:48
montreal trades Carey Price, Alexei Emelin to edmonton for Griffin Reinhart, Jordan Eberle, Cam Talbot, 2017 1st, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

montreal trades Max Patioretty to pittsburgh for Marc Andre Fleury.

montreal trades Nikita Sherbak to edmonton for Nail yakupov.

03 Jul 2016 19:31:49
Why is the Yak trade separate?

Anyway, oilers don't do that. They aren't selling their whole team for a goalie. No point of even discussing it haha.

03 Jul 2016 20:08:07
Why don't the oilers do that Price is The best in the game.

03 Jul 2016 20:25:27
How about NO. . Price isn't going anywhere.
We jus lost PK. . let us mourn in peace. please no mention of a Price trade.

03 Jul 2016 20:27:17
Funny joke Bud.

03 Jul 2016 21:13:28
Price is made of glass, although he's the best in the game he doesn't get you 2017 first, rnh, ebs and talbot. Emelin is a cap dump and has zero value. Montreal should trade price though, he'll be gone after next season and head home to Vancouver.

03 Jul 2016 21:31:23
Why would he go to Vancouver that makes no sense.

03 Jul 2016 21:33:39
Price best regular season goalie in the game when healthy why not throw in klefbom for Lars Eller.

03 Jul 2016 22:23:51
Not a joke.

03 Jul 2016 23:01:27
I think the city of Montreal would burn down if the Habs traded Subban and Price haha.

03 Jul 2016 23:14:28
So Oilers get the best goalie and a defenseman, for RNH + Ebs + 1st round + Reinhart + Talbot. Yeah like I said, funny joke.

03 Jul 2016 23:16:05
If price would be trade then mcdavid or drais would be coming back.

04 Jul 2016 00:30:55
Better idea Mason for Mcdavid since Chiarreli doesn't seem to want to win

04 Jul 2016 04:46:03
Oils add Macdavid.

04 Jul 2016 15:00:54
He will go to Vancouver because he's from
BC and both their goalies are rubbish and ufas soon. Why would he stay in mtl, they clearly don't value their stars. And mtl is rubbish no depth and have a very small window to win.

04 Jul 2016 16:36:51
Vancouver's window to win is probably one of the smallest, if not the smallest, window to win lol.

29 Jun 2016 00:26:46
Minnesota Wild Acquire:
Kevin Shattenkirk
Patrick Berglund
2017 2nd Round Pick

St. Louis Blues Acquire:
Charlie Coyle
Mike Rielly
2017 2nd Round Pick (Conditional)
*Condition is that if Kevin Shattenkirk is either traded or resigned, this pick becomes a 1st Round Pick in EITHER 2017 or 2018, choice of Minnesota)


Edmonton Oilers Acquire:
Ryan Ellis
Eric Nystrom (Salary Retention - 1.1 Million)
2016 2nd Round Pick

Nashville Predators Acquire:
Jordan Eberle


Dallas Stars Acquire:
Marc-Andre Fleury

Pittsburgh Penguins Acquire:
Antti Niemi (Salary retention - 1.7 Million)
Brett Ritchie
2017 2nd Round Pick
2018 3rd Round Pick.

29 Jun 2016 13:52:17
Wow this an solid post all of them are fairly reasonable but I think Pits adds or Dallas takes away a piece like the 3rd.

29 Jun 2016 15:03:56
Blues decline this offer. Thanks for trying though LOL.

27 Jun 2016 15:23:59
Leafs) F. Anderson, Kapanan and Rychel
Penguins) Kessel

Fair trade? Yes or no?

27 Jun 2016 15:49:03
It's a nice silver lining to one of the worst trades I have seen. Shows what an experienced GM can do with crappy pieces.

27 Jun 2016 15:59:27
Leafs win, Kessel didn't perform in the reg season.

27 Jun 2016 16:16:10
I get that you have compared the pieces used to acquire Kessel to compare them to what they are now. But stop this.

27 Jun 2016 16:28:20
No Pens still get the best player easily.

27 Jun 2016 16:38:27
I thought we already went through this? Chirp still hasn't gathered himself enough to bring back his hatred for leaf fans. I can't really answer your question because I myself don't know a lot about Kapanen or Rychel. I must say I'm impressed with how many people on this site that follow the young kids. I really only have the time to see them once they're in the NHL and I still don't recall seeing Rychel. Anderson looks like he's a solid goalie but he had a much better team in front of him.

27 Jun 2016 16:38:42
Are you high?

27 Jun 2016 17:36:44
There were additional pieces in the kessel trade and to acquire those players unless I'm mistaken.

So please stop. Kessel trade was awful still is.

27 Jun 2016 17:41:30
Yeah shouldn't there be a couple 2nd rounders in there?

27 Jun 2016 18:03:02
bud, you are joking right? who cares if kessel didn't perform great during the regular season they have a cup now, so pens win.

27 Jun 2016 19:03:18
Sorry read it wrong.

27 Jun 2016 20:03:29
both teams won that trade. Pens got a solid goal scorer and Leafs got rid of contract (85%) Anderson and Kapanen/ Rychel is GRAVY.

28 Jun 2016 00:23:34
That's like comparing Anderson, Kapanen, Rachel to Seguin, Hamilton, Knight. NJ.

24 Jun 2016 04:55:13
Pittsburgh trades Malkin to Montreal for Subban and 2nd round pick


24 Jun 2016 05:25:03
My thought is that it's even malkin for suban. The age difference makes up the value difference.

24 Jun 2016 09:14:31
Malkin for shattenkirk ;) instantly takes over as number 1 dman, then trade letang cause you'll have no more use for him

23 Jun 2016 17:32:19
Pittsburgh Trades

Edmonton Trades


23 Jun 2016 18:50:09
Yeah No from Penguins. They just won the cup and Rust was great for them.

23 Jun 2016 02:09:58
here's a couple of moves i could see the Calgary Flames making:

2nd Round pick (35th overall)
Emile Porier


This trade makes sense because Porier was drafted in the 1st round a few years ago and has some potiential. The penguins wanted our 6th OA pick which would never happen

CGY will sign David Perron to a 3yr 4mil per year deal that will fill the gaping hole they have at right wing.

(this won't happen but i can dream)

First Round pick (6th Overall)
Second Round Picl (35th Overall)
Third Round Pick (66th Overall)


Thoughts on all 3?

23 Jun 2016 02:23:24
Calgary adds on the 3rd maybe Kylington, Wotherspoon.

23 Jun 2016 02:25:04
3rd isn't enough. I wouldn't give Bishop and Drouin for that. I don't think Drouin gets traded anyway they need some forwards when Stamkos goes.

23 Jun 2016 02:58:16
Fleury one ain't bad.

23 Jun 2016 03:24:07
You actually might be able to get Bishop out of Tampa but not Drouin.

23 Jun 2016 03:24:42
the first one needs a bit more coming from Calgary and I'm not sure about the Drouin/ Bishop trade because Drouin has already rescinded his trade request.

23 Jun 2016 14:36:36
this doesn't get you Drouin alone, let alone him and bish.

22 Jun 2016 19:27:10
Pit: Evgeni Malkin
Chi: Artem Anisimov
Brent Seabrook
Nick Schmaltz
2017 1st.

22 Jun 2016 19:44:02
They just signed Schmaltz. Also, no from Pittsburgh.

23 Jun 2016 00:34:16
did you see how well anisimov played with panarin and kane? also seabrook is a good 2 defenseman and chicago just signed schmalz. i wouldn't want to get rid of another first round pick either. yeah it'd help cap situation but why hurt our defense to get more offense. we need depth forwards and better defense, not a top 6 player.

23 Jun 2016 00:50:25
Chicago can't afford Evgeni Malkin. They had to sacrifice Tuevo Teravainen (#18 overall in the 2012 Entry
Draft) just to rid themselves of Bryan Bickell's contract.

22 Jun 2016 19:18:55
Bruins/ Oilers
Seidenberg for Pouliot

Bruins/ Devils
Chara for Pick#105

Bruins/ Flames
Connolly Rask pick#49 for pick#6

Bruins/ Leafs
Pick#195 for rights to Cowen

Bruins/ Penguins
Pick#165 for rights to Schultz

Bruins/ Sharks
pick#136 for rights to Reimer

Bruins/ Ducks
Pick#135 for rights to Stewart

Players offer.
Cowen 4 years at 1,5 millions per
Schultz 4 years at 2 millions per
Stewart 4 years at 2 millions per
Reimer 4 years at 5 millions per
Eriksson 5 years at 5,5 millions per

This Buys more time to draft and develop player in providence (Ahl) .

22 Jun 2016 19:46:11
Why in god's name are you offering all those guys 4 year deals?

Cowen and Stewart won't get anything more than 1 (maybe 2) year deals. Shultz could get a 2 year. Also, these trades are unlikely in so many ways.

22 Jun 2016 20:42:04
And why are you giving up so many draft picks for UFAs?!

23 Jun 2016 00:38:11
i think chara would get a better return than a mid 3rd round pick, maybe 2nd + prospect. cowen was bought out so can't trade for his rights. think bruins would add another piece for #6 overall. the only ones i'd give the 4 year deals to would be shultz and cowen, even then it'd be pushing it.

22 Jun 2016 18:15:29
Just playing with an idea here.

STL: Malkin

PIT: Shattenkirk, Stastny, 2017 1st

Not sure if it's enough future for Pit. Long term investment for STL. For those who say Shatty is worth more bc he's a dman, he's a UFA in a year. Stastny is a UFA the following year. And STL does not have an elite #1 C.

Anywho just a thought and obviously would need adjustment.

22 Jun 2016 18:48:13
Penguins have No cap space.

22 Jun 2016 19:05:54
Not a chance.

22 Jun 2016 19:05:54
Not a chance.

22 Jun 2016 13:20:04
Flames/ Leafs

Wideman for Bernier

Flames/ Penguins

Pick#66 for Schultz

Gives decent player at decent price.

22 Jun 2016 13:36:18
Well Pittsburgh does the 2nd one. Because they said they aren't tendering him, so the flames could just get him for free.

22 Jun 2016 12:05:19
Best Malkin-Trade for Pittsburgh:

Penguins get: B. Saad and Nr.1 Pick 2016

Columbus get: E. Malkin.

22 Jun 2016 12:40:37
CLB is already in salary cap hell, they can't afford him. And Malkin is not likely going anywhere.

22 Jun 2016 17:57:57
CLB try to trade Tyutin, Clarkson, Hartnell and maybe Foligno. So they can save money with other trades.
CLB need a better center after trading Johansen; and PIT get a fast LW for the Crosby-Line and get more cap space.

22 Jun 2016 11:55:07
Flames- 6th OA
Penguins- fleury, rights to Schultz, 2nd (Ana)

Does it seem fair?

22 Jun 2016 12:41:43
They aren't trading their 6th OA for Fleury, it's just not happening. Schneider is a better goalie who was much younger when he got the 9th pick from Jersey.

22 Jun 2016 16:56:19
Ya but Schneider for Horvat was a stupid trade
