Blake Comeau

Ian Cole

Avs sell high on Comeau who can be the defensive winger on a line with Malkin and Kessel and solidify their D core with Cole. Since Cole is a more valuable asset as a D, Avs add a little.

03 Dec 2017 22:35:13
Canucks elder retain 2.5 mill 3d penguins ion Cole and a 1s

..canucks sutter Cole vanek mtl 1 and two second...

Canucks sven baertschi Ben hutton and a 2 jets Kyle Connor....

04 Dec 2017 04:52:24
Wtf does that say? Lol.

04 Dec 2017 05:50:33
wtf did i read. Now No way would Jets make that trade. Connner looking solid on the top line and is producing top notch and going to get better. van players are mediocre at best and far lower ceiling then conners. Jets are ties for #1 atm why would they make the team worse now and in the future. doesn't help Jets at all.

04 Dec 2017 09:13:16

05 Dec 2017 14:02:47
Man, could you format you're trade so that they are in a readable format.

28 Nov 2017 20:26:43
Ian Cole and a 2017 3rd Round Pick to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Tyler Bozak, Nikita Soshnikov and Curtis McElheinney.

- Pittsburgh needs depth scoring. Bozak is a third line centre who can move up as needed. He provides better insurance than any of Carter Rowney, Riley Sheahan and Greg McKegg.
- Nikita Soshnikov can play on a third/ fourth line and be an energy guy. Can be a decent depth scorer, imo, capable of 20ish points in an NHL job.
- McElheinney provides insurance as a veteran backup for Matt Murray (Pittsburgh doesn't have one), and also provides a net presence due to Pittsburgh's sudden need of a goalie (Matt Murray/ Jakub Voracek last night)

- Toronto acquires a rugged dman who can play top 4 minutes. Playing alongside Jake Gardiner could help Gardiner, as did Hainsey with Rielly. This allows Zaitsev to move to the third pairing, and finally allows Toronto to have three capable NHL defensive pairings. Plus, Bozak can be replaced with Marleau at centre, and Marleau's wing spot can be taken by Leivo. Kapanen can also be in the call-up spot instead of Sosh, as Sosh would be gone. McElheinney, although he is a well-liked guy, just seems to be outmatched by guys like Sparks or Calvin Pickard, both capable NHL backups and very good AHLers.

Imo fills both teams needs. Forward and goalie depth for Pittsburgh. Defensive depth for Toronto.

28 Nov 2017 21:48:10
Pretty good trade for both teams I'd say.
Is Bozak a UFA after this season? Pretty sure he is.

28 Nov 2017 22:47:23
Would a player for player deal work as well?
I would value Cole just a bit higher than Bozak myself.
Bozak, 4th for Cole?
I do how ever reslly like the original post as well tho!

29 Nov 2017 00:18:38
Not a bad trade.

29 Nov 2017 00:28:21
Cole is not that good. I would say he's a bottom pair defender. He also plays the left side.

29 Nov 2017 11:23:46

Thanks bro. I added Sosh and McElheinney just cause of Pittsburghs needs rn. Espec. McElheinney, because they're going to have a tandem of Jarry/ DeSmith for the next month, which doesn't look that pretty.

I could see Bozak and McElheinney for Cole however, just basically replacing the 4th you put w. Curtis.

But yeah, as a Toronto fan, I'd love to have Ian Cole. @Vancity, I watched Cole in the playoffs, he was solid and is the type of dman Toronto needs. Imo, he's a #4, and that's kinda what we need. I mean,

Rielly - Hainsey
Zaitsev/ Gardiner - Cole
Zaitsev/ Gardiner - Borgman/ Carrick

looks better than.

Rielly - Hainsey
Zaitsev - Gardiner
Borgman - Polak/ Carrick.

29 Nov 2017 13:11:05
For some reason Pickard to me would interest them more than Mcelhenny. Or Hutchinson in Winnipeg.

30 Nov 2017 11:38:04
Pitt has lost a lot of leverage sitting Cole. No way T.O. does this.

28 Nov 2017 16:40:09
PIT: Cole
WPG: Charrot, Dano

28 Nov 2017 18:05:14
how does that help the penguins. i could see them wanting a first rounder or solid 2nd line winger.

28 Nov 2017 18:15:33
Too much to give up for Ian Cole.

28 Nov 2017 18:43:11
Cole isn't worth a 1st round pick or a solid 2nd line winger. Wow.

28 Nov 2017 19:55:26
I said wanting. Doest mean they will get that. but he is 28 and lhd 26 points +26 last year. i could see him maybee getting super late first with some cap retention maybee a sign and trade. Not sure. But he does have some value. I would think montreal would jump.

22 Nov 2017 02:46:54
Mtl: Patches, Mete, Julsen,1rd pick 2018, Lekonen

Pitts: Crosby

22 Nov 2017 03:31:38
Thats not hockey works unfortunately.

22 Nov 2017 03:34:47
looooooooooooool wtf.

22 Nov 2017 04:00:11
That’s he first Crosby trade I’ve ever seen lol with some of the others, I’m surprised it took this long.

14 Nov 2017 17:49:33
Vancouver sutter and elder

Pittsburgh Olli Marta Carle Daniel sprong

14 Nov 2017 18:13:25
Pens already traded for their third line center in Sheahan. And they aren't giving up Sprong for that.
And who's Carle? Is that two or three guys coming from Pens?

14 Nov 2017 18:52:18
Riley sheanna suck he as 1 point in 18 game and he slow as mud. Carle hagelin suck to and he's making 4 mill a season.

14 Nov 2017 19:28:59
Sheahan sucks he as 1 point in 18 games he he's really slow Carle hagelin is over paid 4 million a season sprong not even that great of a prospect they or they could give a 2 or 1.

15 Nov 2017 05:06:49
High290 should be High24/ 7. Your responses aren’t even sentences and have no spaces. And leave out words and names in every proposal. Why would anyone take it serious? Put some thought.

Olli Marta carle Daniel sprong?! I’m assuming by you saying hagelin sucks, Carle in the offer is Carl Hagelin?

13 Nov 2017 14:48:45
To Pittsburgh: charli lindgren+ McCarron
To mtl: 1st rd

13 Nov 2017 15:51:52
Isn't that your future starter once Price is traded? 🤔.

13 Nov 2017 17:53:58
Lmao you want a late 1st for that? Bruh wtf is up with habs fans lately.

13 Nov 2017 18:14:28
lindgren is playing lights out hockey for habs now? why would they trade him?

14 Nov 2017 07:04:31
At time they didn't have the cap space and they thought that luc Dubois would be ready look he's not gagner and Anderson played really well together.

07 Nov 2017 01:37:02
Winnipeg Jets trade (D) Jacob Trouba to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for (F) Conor Sheary, (D) Olli Maatta and a 2018 2nd Round Pick.

07 Nov 2017 02:07:36
No thanks. Jets don't need Sheary and Maatta and a second aren't enticing enough to move our best D-man.

07 Nov 2017 04:20:37
Overrating trouba a quite bit wouldn't ya say.

07 Nov 2017 15:59:14
Nope, not overrating Trouba at all. Maatta isn't as good overall, can't skate as well and is injury prone and the Jets don't need Sheary at all. So, what is in it for the Jets?

07 Nov 2017 23:21:53
I'll take Buff over Trouba any day.

03 Nov 2017 02:03:35
Oilers Acquire:
• Carl Hagelin

Penguins Acquire:
• Ryan Strome

Hagelin was a healthy scratch against the oilers but is a good scoring winger and has the speed to keep up with McDavid.

03 Nov 2017 04:08:40
I like it.

03 Nov 2017 04:31:28
Wtf hagelin is like 6 years older, makes 1.5m more, and is a no better scorer than Strome dude. He’s a 30 point guy? So is Strome.

03 Nov 2017 12:13:14
If I were both GMS I would do it.

01 Nov 2017 08:08:22
To Pittsburgh: Alex Galchenyuk
To Montreal: Olli Maata or Justin Schultz, conditional 2nd 2019 (if Pittsburgh does not win the cup in the next 2 years or if Montreal wins the cup in either year, the pick disappears)

01 Nov 2017 10:43:54
Unfortunately, galchenyuk doesn't even have near that value. Pens decline.

01 Nov 2017 13:05:55
To be honest I rather keep Galchenyuk forever.

01 Nov 2017 23:27:09
At this point Chuky has almost no value maybe a 2nd at best at that is due to what is alleged to be a drug problem and no gm wants to deal with that.

02 Nov 2017 00:10:01
olli maata isn't worth it.

25 Oct 2017 14:55:38
To Pittsburgh: Galchenyuk + Montoya + 2rd
To mtl: Guetzel+ 5rd

25 Oct 2017 16:15:25
I love how desperate the habs fans have become!

25 Oct 2017 17:43:52
Its definetly getting bad.

22 Oct 2017 21:11:27
Pittsburgh- 2nd, niemi

Florida- James Reimer

23 Oct 2017 15:01:29
Don't think there's a fit from either side. With penguins cap situation every year I doubt they want to commit 4 years to a back up. And on the other side, Luongo isn't washed up yet, but he's not getting any younger, and his days of 70 starts are definitely behind him. That's why panthers made that kind of commitment to Reimer in the first place. Don't think they want Niemi as plan B if Lou gets hurt or tired.

21 Oct 2017 23:41:08
Couple of Random Trades:

CBJ Trades: Ryan Murray, Lukas Sedlak and Tyler Motte.
MTL Trades: Alex Galchenyuk, Brandon Davidson, Ales Hemsky and a 2018 3rd Round Draft Pick.

NYR Trades: Marc Staal, Sean Day, a 2018 2nd Round Draft Pick.
VGK Trades: Luca Sbisa, Brad Hunt and David Clarkson.
**Pure Salary/ Term dump by NYR/ / Clarkson can be shelved on LTIR, so he isn't much of a hassle.

EDM Trades: Matt Benning, Jujhar Khaira, Mark Fayne and a 2018 2nd Round Draft Pick.
DET Trades: Mike Green and David Booth.

TOR Trades: Martin Marincin, Ben Smith and 2018 3rd Round Draft Pick.
VGK Trades: Jason Garrison.

SJ Trades: Joe Thornton (50% Retention) and Joel Ward (50% Retention)
PIT Trades: Greg McKegg, Filip Gustavsson, and a 2018 1st Round Draft Pick.
**All in for the three-peat kind of deal for Pittsburgh. SJ is unlikely to make the playoffs, and Joe wants to win a cup, so a deal to Pittsburgh makes sense. This only happens if Riley Sheahan bums out in Pittburgh, which is possible.

NSH Trades: Kevin Fiala, Mattias Ekholm, Craig Smith and a 2018 1st Round Draft Pick.
NYI Trades: John Tavares, Nikolai Kulimen and Thomas Hickey.
*Most unrealistic trade I'm proposing on this board, and least likely to occur, but it does offer NYI two key, young pieces in exchange for Tavares, plus a 1st. Nashville would do it to get over the hump and become that true contender.

CONFIRMED (not my idea)
PIT Trades: Scott Wilson and 2018 3rd Round Draft Pick
DET Trades: Riley Sheahan and 2018 5th Round Draft Pick.

22 Oct 2017 12:44:22
No from CLB, VEG, DET, SJ, NYI.

22 Oct 2017 18:13:23
lol why would montreal do that.

13 Oct 2017 03:21:23
To Pittsburgh

To Detroit
2018 2nd
2019 5th

12 Oct 2017 18:26:07
Pitts: Turris, Oduya, Hammond

Ott: Maatta, Hagelin, 4th, becomes a 3rd if turris re signs or pens make it to the stanley cup finals

Pens need third line centre and cap space for next year all players are UFA and they get rid of Hagelin who has 2 years left, this make Ceci expendable

Col: Ceci, Brown, 1st in 2018 or 2019 ottawa choice, MacArthur

Ott: Duchene, if pick is below 15th sens get a 4th

13 Oct 2017 05:07:14
Col does not need another RD (Ceci) and the pick would have to be in 2017.

13 Oct 2017 11:24:19
Sadly the 2017 draft is already in the books /.

13 Oct 2017 22:26:43
Adding maatta to make ceci expendable, good one lol.

09 Oct 2017 19:32:56
Shipachyov is upset. He doesn't want to be in the minors, and rightfully so.

Pittsburgh needs a new third line centre.

V. Shipachyov (25% Retained) + L. Sbisa to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for C. Hagelin + D. Sprong + 2018 2nd Round Pick.

Sbisa and Hagelin are salary against each other. Vegas wants to get rid of dmen, and Hagelin is stuck behind many wingers in Pittsburgh. Makes sense.

A disgruntled Ship for Sprong and a 2nd seems fair, considering the need for a third line centre in Pittsburgh, and Ship's talent level.

09 Oct 2017 21:39:18
Interesting. They had to send him and two others down 3 days before season opening because they were trying to trade one of Brad Hunt, Reinhart or Merril. Because those three had to clear waivers and they thought someone would claim and didn't want to lose for nothing.
Ship, Shea Theodore and another were sent down because they didn't have to clear waivers.
GM messed up and Ship pod for it. Sucks big time. Understand why he may be upset.
His agent Svaboka said today that the rumor of him wanting to return to the KHL is untrue.
GM needs to get him in the lineup.
Or his trade to Pitts you proposed is actually intriguing.

12 Oct 2017 21:08:16
Sprong' not going anywhere.

03 Oct 2017 19:15:30
Confirmed trade
Penguins trade- Derrick Pouliot
Canucks trade- Andrey Pedan and 4th (think 2018)

03 Oct 2017 20:17:10
Canucks Win this one.

03 Oct 2017 20:56:17
I mean neither one are impact d-men but Pouliot's got draft pedigree so I guess that's why this is relevant.

03 Oct 2017 21:59:34
Wtf Pittsburgh.

04 Oct 2017 00:58:11
Looks like Canucks may have come out on top right now but I just remember all the players that seem to come out of nowhere or other teams wrote off that find Their game again in Pittsburgh or make a name for themselves there. It's not like pouliot was really making it a hard decision to move on from him. I'd say wait a bit and see.

04 Oct 2017 03:40:18
Pedan just a scraper.

04 Oct 2017 13:04:09
this is a wash unless pouliot finally puts it together.

04 Oct 2017 21:27:50
i don't get why pittsburgh did this when they could have picked up pedan on waivers? did they have a deal in place on condition that pedan cleared waivers first so they wouldn't have to put him on waivers again and risk losing him for nothing or something?

21 Sep 2017 03:45:10
What would it take for Pittsburgh to get Barzal
He's a pass first guy
Imagine him feeding Kessel the puck on the third line

Maybe Barzal for Pouliot, Sprong, Jarry,1st
NYI can use the pieces to get Duchene
An overpayment from Pittsburgh?


21 Sep 2017 04:23:09
Pouliot & Sprong would get it done you'd think

21 Sep 2017 05:47:02
Dont think NYI are intrested in trading Barzal at all or else he would of been traded to the Avs in a Duchene trade by now.

21 Sep 2017 14:35:42
If Tavares leaves, he's their only hope at a top line guy right now.

21 Sep 2017 17:10:51
I like Barzal, but I don't like him that much. He fell to them in his draft and has huge upside. And as stated above if Tavares leaves he is what they fall back on.

21 Sep 2017 17:16:02
Ya Isles would have to wait and see what Tavares does before considering anything involving Barzel.

21 Sep 2017 03:28:49
Bozak at 50% to Pittsburgh for Jarry and a 2nd.

21 Sep 2017 04:23:28
What's the point for Toronto

21 Sep 2017 05:34:36
@Leafsfan11 they get a young goalie (almost ready) and a high pick.

21 Sep 2017 07:02:07
But they are trying to contend. I think they'd rather have a good 3 like center other than a pick and a prospect. I think bozak could fetch a 2nd while being retained. A little too much for him

15 Sep 2017 22:45:51
O.Maatta + 2nd for M.Duchene

Down the middle would look like:


Would be a very good upgrade but leaves a hole on D. My guess is that they should trade for an underachieving Sam Bennett. I feel he would be a monster in the Eastern Conference and could develop better on a team like Pittsburgh. But the price would be fairly high considering Calgary is high on him and his potential is high.

What would you guys think about a Sam Bennett or Duchene trade to Pittsburgh and what would the cost be?

16 Sep 2017 01:14:07
#1 don't see anyone wanting Duchene as 3rd centre. Costs too much to acquire and too big of a salary to be 3rd line

#2 it would take more than maatta and a 2nd rounder to get him

#3 if Bennett was asking for 4-5 mill a season based on what he's proven, flames would look to move him. He just signed 1.9 for the next 2 years and still has lots of potential. They would be fools to move him. At 1.9 they will always be able to move him, but if he breaks out this year, think of what a return would be with another year at 1.9 and still RFA status after that. Not the time to move him.

16 Sep 2017 02:06:13
I could see Duch playing wing in Pitts.
Pitts is intersted in Spooner or Sheahan for third line center. Been talkin. To Detroit and Boston the last few days about them two for third line center.

16 Sep 2017 03:36:00
Not enough for Duchene. got to add another good piece and make that 2nd into a 1st at least. Pens 2nd rounder will be very late (56-62 range)

16 Sep 2017 04:01:55
Matta sucks and is very slow, that 2nd is badically a 3rd. it sould take matta 1st plus.
