Toronto - Jake gardiner, kadri, Pitts 1st

Columbus - R Johansen, J boll.

25 Nov 2015 23:51:59
That's more like it.

26 Nov 2015 02:14:53
CLB says no.

26 Nov 2015 03:30:45
Gardiner is so overrated. Kadri+1st is nice but I don't see Gardiner helping CBJ defensively. They want to keep the puck outta the net.

22 Nov 2015 11:48:50
If the Ducks were willing to move lindholm I'd like to see this trade.

Tor:JVR, Gardiner, P. Holland/S. Mathias and pits 2nd

Ana: H, Lindholm and a good Center prospec.

Ana down grades with Gardiner who plays a puck moving role and get a top line winger to play with Perry on the opposite wing to bring back a more affective bobby Ryan. They also get a good third Line rental and a nice pick. Leafs get a future top 2 D if not one now.

22 Nov 2015 15:37:52
Rielly goes if Lindholm comes.

22 Nov 2015 15:54:59
Draisaitl_94 there pretty much the same player I don't agree with that statement if anything marner or Nylander witch all three are untouchable.

22 Nov 2015 16:13:40
Rielly is better than Lindholm sp I would have to disagree with that.

22 Nov 2015 18:15:42
Im not a fan of trading JVR unless its part of a significant move.

Hes a consistant left winger with skill and size on a cheep contract with term. That gives him value. The leafs should just keep him.

This trade is bad for the leafs and doesn't make sense for the ducks either. They had gardiner and Schultz and pushed them both out for a reason, doubt they want gardiner back.

23 Nov 2015 09:44:59
Rielly is NOT better than Lindholm.

23 Nov 2015 12:52:16
@Drais how not? So far this year (I know small sample size) he is leading that draft class in points with very limited power play opportunity and has been given the assignment of facing the other teams top lines every night and over the last month or so with the exception of a few gafs (which is to be expected of a 21 year defenceman) has actually done a pretty good job at it. I'm not saying Lindholm is bad (he is an awesome player) I just think that people have to give credit where credit is due which in my opinion Rielly definitely deserves.

23 Nov 2015 13:18:50
I agree with Charles his upside is higher than lindholm IMO
Sense he could be a karrlson/OEL type player but
Lindholm is a bigger guy and uses a more affective deffense game than Rielly so that probably Draisaitls argument.

21 Nov 2015 00:51:47

To Florida Malkin

To Pittsburgh Bjugstad, Crouse, Gudbranson, 1st 2016 or 2017 FLA choice.

21 Nov 2015 05:30:51
Way too much.

18 Nov 2015 22:34:31
Offseason Move

Pitts: Jordan Staal, Rights to Eric. Wisnieski, 1st car choice this year or next year and 3rd (16), 4th (17)

Car: Malkin, rights to Perron, Scuderi.

19 Nov 2015 02:32:01
Lol not even close.

17 Nov 2015 22:58:05
Min: Malkin, Scuderi

Pitts: Coyle, Brodin, Fountaine, Backstrom, 1st, 2nd (17)

17 Nov 2015 23:23:46
Pittsburg adds big time,

18 Nov 2015 04:03:57
How much time? Like 3 hours?

18 Nov 2015 05:02:19
mabe he means big time, like in an absurdly large watch?

18 Nov 2015 06:22:50
Mine was better, Shankar. :P
But that being said, I had first crack. So we're all winners.
Everybody gets time, in whatever form they want.

18 Nov 2015 15:22:08
I was thinking about 15 hours, 3 pocket watches.

17 Nov 2015 02:58:12
Hearing rumors of evgeni maybe on his way out of pittsburgh

Mtl: Plekanec, Delarose, Beaulieu, 1st, 2nd
Pits: Malkin, 5th.

17 Nov 2015 04:59:27
They would want a younger centred if anything. Not a couple years left Plekanec. Besides, you Habs fans all things he's god gift to center so why ya trying to trade him now. You just resigned him!

17 Nov 2015 05:31:00
Delarose is in every Habs fan proposals. From a non bias fan what really is his ceiling?

17 Nov 2015 06:37:05
De La Rose = 3rd liner. A decent one, but not above 3rd line regardless.

17 Nov 2015 09:16:24
I knew he was nothing special but wow what a package he threw together for Malkin.

17 Nov 2015 14:33:57
Galchenyuk, 2016 1st ++.

17 Nov 2015 16:10:15
Start with Pacioretty and Subban and add from there, I'd say.

17 Nov 2015 20:31:41
I wouldn't trade either Paccoiretty or Subban straight up for Malkin...

17 Nov 2015 21:54:18
id do paccioretty for malkin straight up any day.

18 Nov 2015 05:32:00
Habs pass

18 Nov 2015 08:40:36
Wanted to say Pacioretty OR Subban, sorry. Sure not both.

16 Nov 2015 17:39:57
Pittsburgh- Sprong Perron Lovejoy
Colorado - Barrie


Nashville- Jones
Colorado- Duchene 2016 1st.

17 Nov 2015 19:58:28
Duchy>jones preds add, avs remove pick

17 Nov 2015 23:31:32
Colorado adds in Pitt trade, Nashville adds in other trade.

07 Nov 2015 21:09:26
Leafs trade JVR, Polak and PiTs 1st to Anaheim for Hagelin, Ritchie and a 3rd

Hagelin, 3rd=Polak,1st
Especially considering Hagelin is struggling and Anaheim wants to win now

Anaheim can use the first to aquire another player

Leafs get a top prospect, a struggling top 6 forward to hope improves so they can trade after for assets and a pick coming back.

07 Nov 2015 21:35:14
Honestly we can't give up the first, nor would i want to. Make the first something else. JVR has tremendous value for a leaf.

08 Nov 2015 21:47:11
Hagelin and a 3rd does not even come close to a 1st, and then adding Polak on top (sure he's not worth much, but still)

07 Nov 2015 19:35:38
St. Louis Trades:
Shattenkirk +

Pittsburgh Trades:

Just a thought as a base. What would be the addition.

My thoughts:

Shattenkirk, Backes, Rattie, 1st/2nd

Feedback appreciated.

07 Nov 2015 21:27:36
No from blues. Who replaces Shats?

07 Nov 2015 21:57:24
I would do malkin derick pouliot retain 1 mil
Shattenkirk rattie berglund 2nd 2017 3rd 2016.

08 Nov 2015 03:32:07
Lol. Of corse you would Russian Tank. But Pittsburgh wouldn't do that trade.

08 Nov 2015 18:11:57
And st. Louis wouldn't do the trade suggested by op. Trading is back and forth. Besides blues are in no rush to trade shatty, we are winning even though we are severely injured team. Just no need at this time.

07 Nov 2015 03:53:09
So I read off of the hockey press, that the Canucks have been shopping Hamhuis around and this is a trade proposal they had:
To penguins: Hamhuis

To Canucks: Scuderi, Dumoulin, O. Sundqvist, 2nd Round

I look at it and think the canucks should offer more but in a way, I think it's fair. The Penguins are getting a D-man (which they need) and Vancouver is getting their rebuild back but they're also getting a Vetran presence in Scuderi back, and a young Dumoulin. What do you think?

07 Nov 2015 04:17:35
too mcuh for overrated Hamhuis

07 Nov 2015 11:36:55
hanhuis isn't overrated but it still is too much for a pending free agent.

07 Nov 2015 19:15:33
Hamhuis is very overrated.

07 Nov 2015 21:03:22
hamhuis is a very good #2 Dman comparable to seabrook (seabrook is better better but i am talking about level of player)

hey i'd take him over phaneuf ;)

07 Nov 2015 21:29:24
Typically guys like Hamhuis who don't get a lot of points get considered overrated but he's a quality veteran Dman who plays solid consistently. He'll still be moved for a 1st + average prospect at the deadline if nucks are out.

08 Nov 2015 00:14:37
Hamhuis made Canada's roster for the Olympics. That speaks volumes.

13 Nov 2015 04:53:49
Hamhuis is still a very good D-Man and not that old. However, this is the final year of his current contract. I think the Canucks should deal him but your trade package doesn't fly.

Hamhuis for a 1st round pick or a blue chip prospect would be fair.

05 Nov 2015 22:23:01
A few random thoughts for yall

Time to solidify Ottawas Defence.
Needs? - top 4 LHD

Possible trade 1

Senators trade
Curtis Lazar
Patrick Weircoch
2016 2nd

Kings trade
Jake Muzzin

(This trade already makes an average kings blue line weaker so maybe more of an offseason deal)

Possible trade 2

Senators trade
Colin White
Patrick Weircoch

Blues trade
Jay Bo

(Probably unrealistic because Blues will look to make a playoff run this season again and downgrading JBO to weircoch doesn't help. )
Calgary trades
Dennis Wideman
Marcus Granlund

Pittsburgh trades
David Perron
Tim Erixon
2017 3rd

Penguins get a muck moving Dman, Flames get top 6 help.
Montreal trades
Jacob Dela Rose
Devante Smith-Pelly
2016 1st
2017 3rd

Philadelphia trades
Wayne Simmonds

Montreal gains a top 6 forward who I think would fill in very well and help Habs in all aspects of the game. Philly gets 2 young forwards who could potentially crack the starting roster because of Phillys weak F depth. Also get a 1st to help restock Forward prospects.

06 Nov 2015 03:56:17
I like the Montreal trade. Gally needs a scoring winger.

06 Nov 2015 06:17:09
to me philly says no. Simmonds is thier type of player on a good contract so i'm sure they would rather two really solid pieces then four ok ones. The first round pick would be the only thing of interest in that deal.

06 Nov 2015 12:21:11
Wayyyy too much for Muzzin.
Philly says no, Simmonds is way more valuable to them than that.

04 Nov 2015 00:41:23
Tor:JVR, P. Holland and pits 2nd

Mon:A. Emilin, N. Sheberk, Z. Fucal, J. Tinordy, N. Bealieau and Del La Rose

This trade solidify's Toronto's D prospects while giving up a top line winger on a great contract.

04 Nov 2015 04:16:36
Euh I'd believe it but might have to add a little from Toronto, maybe reimer or bernier.

04 Nov 2015 14:05:14
Mtl giving up way too much.

04 Nov 2015 21:25:18
MTL trades 2 of their top 6 D and their 8th d-man and get no D back, not very likely

05 Nov 2015 02:23:27
Take NB and we have a good deal.

31 Oct 2015 21:22:06
Pittsburgh trades malkin and letangto montreal for pleckanec 1st round pick fucale Lars Eller tinordi couple prospects.

31 Oct 2015 22:22:14
This is a quantity for quality trade if I ever did see one. Don't even know why I bothered to reply to this.
Penguins counter with Fleury, Perron and 3rd for Price and Patches.

31 Oct 2015 22:53:10
This is terrible. I hope you are just trolling for a joke. Please say you are just trolling.

01 Nov 2015 00:09:41
I love this "couple prospects" addition. It's like you gave up entirely. "Who cares, just throw random people at them! As long as we get Malkin and Letang, the only valued pieces in this disaster I'm about to put online! " Hilarious.

01 Nov 2015 12:41:51
Obviously a troll guys, lol.

25 Oct 2015 23:11:31
Couple O' Trades. Rip em up and Have a nice day.

Boston Acquires:
Ladislav Smid
2nd Round Pick

Calgary Acquires:
Loui Eriksson


Pittsburgh Acquires:
Michael Sgrabossa
Clayton Stoner
2nd Round Pick

Anahiem Acquires:
David Perron
Tyler Biggs

Buffalo Acquires:
Jack Campbell

Dallas Acquires:
Jamie McGinn

Colorado Acquires:
Ron Hainsey
3rd Round Pick

Carolina Acquires:
Dennis Everberg
3rd Round Pick

Rip em up :)

26 Oct 2015 00:34:48
This actually ain't bad, good post.

26 Oct 2015 01:29:05
Can't see penguins taking Stoners contract but besides that nothing to rip up here.

26 Oct 2015 02:07:15
I think the only one who really says no is Dallas, I don't see the need for them to give up on Jack Campbell so early without a defenseman being part of the return to fulfill their weakness.

27 Oct 2015 08:36:36
I like all the trades except the Carolina - Colorado trade.

31 Oct 2015 22:47:49
Very good post. All possible. Don't really know much about everberg so I'll take your word on that one. Maybe Sabres add a 3rd instead of a 5th?

24 Oct 2015 23:55:39
Nashville: Seth Jones. Mike Riberio and 1st

Pittsburgh: Evgeni Malkin David Perron

For Nashville to win cup and get over the hump

For Pittsburgh to have a Top 4 defence men they need and to fill malkins center position.

25 Oct 2015 02:29:02
Preds add Atleast 1 significant piece. Ribero won't replace Malkins production.

25 Oct 2015 18:19:46
I don't think another piece is needed in that trade because Seth Jones could be a top defence men on any team he is a serious asset and Riberio isn't no malkin but solid line 2 center and a 1st round draft pick is lots.

26 Oct 2015 02:09:49
Preds definitely add a little bit more, however i'm not sure what. Another D-man maybe of lesser value due to the pens needing quality D.

17 Oct 2015 17:27:06
Tml- phaneuf (1 mil retain ), kadri, Pitts first, Percy
Columbus- johansson, clarkson, 3rd.

17 Oct 2015 18:02:50
If I were Columbus I wouldn't do this. Johansen is coming off 2 great seasons and is only going to get better.

17 Oct 2015 18:24:30
what makes you think this is reasonable in the slightest?

17 Oct 2015 18:24:55
Why do columbus do this?

they have no other center to replace johanssen (kadri is not a #1 look at toronto)

phaneuf + Kadri does not equal johansen, of course clarkson is a dump but there is no way the leafs re-aquire him

toronot also cannot trade that pitts first since they do not actually have it yet and percy is pretty much valueless, doesn't really have an nhl future other than maybe 5/6 role

so I don't really beive this is a good trade.

17 Oct 2015 19:22:57
Alright, thanks for letting me know what I need to add for next time :)

17 Oct 2015 22:04:04
Very unreasonable. CBJ wouldn't even consider it.

17 Oct 2015 22:39:07
As much I would love this to happen, if Toronto wants Johansen they would have to start with Reilly + +

That said, RyJo isn't going anywhere regardless.

13 Oct 2015 01:40:23
pit: dan boyle + tanner glass
nyr: david perron + rob scuderi

pit: sven baertschi
van: beau bennett + ben lovejoy

pens lineup with dupuis and fehr

kunitz crosby kessel
baertschi malkin hornqvist
plotnikov bonino sprong
dupuis cullen fehr

cole letang
maatta boyle
dumoulin clendening


13 Oct 2015 17:34:37
The Rangers trade is one of the worst I've seen.

13 Oct 2015 21:32:50
Boyle=Old and useless


14 Oct 2015 00:32:45
@NN21 Bennett is indeed better than Baertschi, but Baertschi>Lovejoy

14 Oct 2015 05:42:45
Baertschi is useless.

selected what 15th overall? Couldn't even play in the pre-season.

12 Oct 2015 00:00:02
My 2016 season predictions (should've posted before th season started but I'mma go anyway)
* (wildcard)
Tampa Bay

New York Rangers
New York Islanders
New Jersey

St. Louis

San Jose
Los Angeles

Central was hard, I could see anyone of Chicago, St. Louis, Minnesota or Nashville pushing for the division title.

12 Oct 2015 01:41:15
Where's Ottawa? You only have 2 (Tampa, Mon) in the Atlantic. Ottawa the third?

12 Oct 2015 02:45:24
Oh haha my bad but I can see 3rd or 4th in their division.

13 Oct 2015 03:25:58
Buffalo will finish ahead of Boston

11 Oct 2015 21:16:43
pit: david perron + rob scuderi + derrick pouliot
fla: jussi jokinen + jayce hawryluk + ian mccoshen + thomas schemitsch

pens gain cap space and get a couple needed prospect and jokinen who had chemistry with geno

panthers get scoring and a top left handed pmd prospect and a veteran in this young team

send sprong back to the juniors,johnston is wasting his time in the fourth line

penguins healthy lineup:
kunitz crosby kessel
jokinen malkin hornqvist
plotnikov bonino bennett
dupuis cullen fehr

cole letang
maatta clendening
dumoulin lovejoy


12 Oct 2015 06:33:44
Just casually throws in Derrick Pouliot like he's nothing.

He's worth 5x that package alone.

13 Oct 2015 02:45:41
umm Pouliot?

05 Oct 2015 22:51:09
Goodness, lots of waiver players today.

If the Leafs WERE smart, I would say pick up Linden Vey; cheap, young, skilled hockey player; could end up being a decent pickup like Panik last year.


For other teams, I definetly see Dustin Tokarski being an inexpensive third-string for teams like Arizona or Boston.

Maxime Talbot could play well on basically any fourth line, so why not pick him up at 900K?

Mason Raymond is a question, pick him if you have enough cash- he's worth a gamble if you got the cash. Looking at teams like Arizona, Carolina, New Jersey & possibly Toronto here.

Frankie Corrado is an ideal fit as a depth defenceman for many teams- definetly could be nice for Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Boston etc.

Dylan Olsen is still young, could work for NJ or TOR

Mark Barberio & Tim Erixon are nice depth pieces, Philly could snag one, Boston could, LA, etc.

Sam Carrick is young, decent fourth liner in the future, could be nice for NJ

One player who shouldn't (kinda obvious) be picked up is Andrew MacDonald. No way, in any chance should you pick him.

There ya go, whady'all think?

06 Oct 2015 00:30:21
If I'm Toronto, I claim Vey, Corrado and Tokarski.

All 3 are young player with great upside.

06 Oct 2015 02:45:25
Players like MacDonald might get picked up by Arizona so they can fill their cap while getting a veteran to teach the young players

06 Oct 2015 06:20:39
also marchesault loaded with skill

06 Oct 2015 08:59:11
I really hope Marchessault goes unclaimed. This guy could play on any bottom 6 in the league, he got played over Drouin in the playoffs at times. Just no space for him in Tampa, but I fear someone will grab him

Didn't VAN acquire Vey for a 2nd rd pick just a year ago? Nice

06 Oct 2015 15:05:36
yeah awful trade by them haha, and I hope the leafs pick up maurchessault

06 Oct 2015 16:10:55
I can see the leafs picking up Marschessault and have him and Panic on the third line. They're essentially going to get their 3rd line from Tampa for free

06 Oct 2015 17:20:37
@JBs32 who Panic Stamkos and Marschessault?

08 Oct 2015 03:28:19
Leafs need a coaching change before this season gets too ugly!
