Hearing the Habs are shopping Lars Eller. The Vancouver Canucks, Washington Capitals and St-Louis Blues are interested in acquiring him. Here are trades that could happen with each team:

Vancouver trades Chris Higgins and a 2nd round pick to MTL for Lars Eller and a 3rd round pick.

Washington Capitals trade Marcus Johansson for Lars Eller, Flynn and a 4th round pick.

St -Louis Blues trade Jori Lehtera for Lars Eller, Sven Andrighetto, Tim Bozon, Zachary Fucale and a 1st round pick.


If we trade to Canucks:


Patches-Chucky-Semin
Desharnais-Pleky-Gallagher
Higgins-McCarron-Kassian
Smith-Pelly-Mitchell-Weise

If we trade to caps:

Patches-Chucky-Semin
Johansson-Pleky-Gallagher
Andrighetto-Desharnais-Kassian
DSP-Mitchell-Weise


If we trade to Blues:

Patches-Lehtera-Semin
Desharnais-Chucky-Gallagher
Kassian-Pleky-Scherbak
Smith-Pelly-Mitchell-Weise


The Lehtera trade is the best overall because the Habs made the trade fair with Eller, a couple of prospects and a 1st round pick. The Habs now have maybe the best Center depth in the league except for the Penguins. The first line with Lehtera is kind of the same in STL. Patches is better than Shwartz and Semin is a Russian like Tarasenko. The Habs now have a great top nine. They can now score more goals!

31 Aug 2015 19:10:05
Lehtera would be a great fit on the Habs

31 Aug 2015 19:19:27
Every one of those got less and less believable.

31 Aug 2015 19:21:40
Good lord.

31 Aug 2015 19:25:22
Except Johansson is far better than eller and we really don't want Flynn and a bad pick, to me it'd probably be more like mojo for eller and a second or third round pick

31 Aug 2015 20:09:41
Holy Overpayment for Lehtera wow. You sure you're not accidentally trading for Backes? Lehtera isn't that great and only had decent numbers because he played Tarasenko and Schwartz.

Capitals trade isn't terrible but Habs add a better pick or prospect IMO

Canucks don't want or need Eller. Fine at C with Sedin, Horvat and Sutter.

31 Aug 2015 20:10:12
You are not geting Lehtera for scraps, seriously.

Neither are you going to get Johanson

Comparing Semin to tarasenko is hysterical.

Best center depth in the league? That made me laugh so hard. so funny.

31 Aug 2015 21:37:05
"Best center depth in the league" now that's what I call funny

31 Aug 2015 22:18:53
if by best center depth in the league you mean your only centes are depth centers then yes. best team in the league with depth centers.

31 Aug 2015 23:18:29
Hahaha @Ovie. Good one. Montreal only has better C depth then maybe Nashville, Carolina, Calgary, Toronto, New Jersey and Arizona.

01 Sep 2015 03:48:47
Hahahaha What a post, thanks for the laughs.

01 Sep 2015 08:07:32
@BJ: Guess you can scratch Calgary off that last (soon). Monahan, Bennett, Backlund (very undervalued)

01 Sep 2015 08:54:28
And Carolina, both Staals, Lindholm

01 Sep 2015 15:55:58
1st trade - Possible, but Higgens would play on the 2nd line with Plekanec and DD would centre the 3rd line. Plus McCarron would be in the AHL and De La Rose would play 3rd line LW with DD and Kassian.

2nd trade - Won't happen. Makes the Caps worse blues the team will have to end up putting faith in Burakovsky being able to be a top 6 winger.

3rd trade - Huge Overpayment by Montreal for a guy who has played one season and played that one season with St.Louis' two young rising superstars (Schwartz, Taresanko). Pacioretty may be on the same level as those two, but Semin is not (at least not anymore). Plus St.Louis wouldn't want to break up the STL line as it is their highest scoring line. Last thing I'm pretty sure Lehtara is injured.

01 Sep 2015 18:42:09
Kings lover let's get something straight right now. Though I believe you are correct with saying that this was an over payment (of crap Players) Quantity does not equal quality. Lehtera is a good center and it just so happens that Tarasenko and him click on a whole nether level, (like Hall and Oates did). SO no the blues will not trade him.

There is no way in hell Max Pacioretty is on Vladimir Tarasenko's level. After this season I will bet to say that he isn't even on swartzs level. I Like patches but he is a power forward and not even the best power forward.

31 Aug 2015 01:34:41
New York Rangers trades Keith Yandle
To
Pittsburgh Penguins for Pascal Dupuis, Brian Dumoulin, and two 2nd rd picks

31 Aug 2015 07:30:05
This one is interesting, If Yandle resigns in Pitts then its good.

31 Aug 2015 01:16:59
TOR trade James Van Riemsdyk, Pittsburgh's 2016 1st round draft pick, 3rd round draft pick, and Prospect Brendan Leipsic to TB in return for Jonathan Drouin, and Mattias Ohlund

31 Aug 2015 09:06:45
TB doesn't really need/can't fit JVR (need more of a playmaker for Stamkos, which Drouin is) and TOR should keep it's draft picks.

01 Sep 2015 02:52:08
Wow ten no but one feedback. Great people in this site that's for sure

01 Sep 2015 08:08:12
Maybe this should rather tell you something about your trade than about people on this site.

29 Aug 2015 15:02:20
Edm:Yak( Potential elite top line winger who'd benefit from a change of scenery)

Tor: T.Bozak or P.Holland,B.Lespic, M.Finn, C.Gibson and pits 1st*(if tradable) this gives edm depth in every position.

Edm: 5th 2017 and 6th 2016

Tampa:4th 2016
Just a swap of picks.

29 Aug 2015 15:36:13
Why would they give that much for Yakupov his last 2 seasons have been disasters.

29 Aug 2015 18:34:41
@KingsLover

@vbbvvbb is right, he has the potential to be an elite winger.

Also, Edmonton doesn't need depth on every position.

Anton Slepyshev,Bogdan Yakimov,Luke Gazdic,Andrew Miller etc.

That's our depth. If you want to get Yakupov, you will most likely get Ference/Nikitin back, and we need another player to fill Yakupov's role.
And top 6 defenceman.

29 Aug 2015 20:34:54
"that much" for Yakupov? Lol. No from EDM

29 Aug 2015 22:06:49
Way to much for yak I don't care what hi potential wus. He is a bust at this point. Change of teams might be the only thing that keeps him in t e nhl at this point

30 Aug 2015 00:12:14
No.

1st, Yakupov is not worth 4 young promising players (excluding bozak) and a 1st round pick on top of it. Yakupov has not shown anything worthy of a 1st overall selection thus far despite playing with elite high end skill on his team.

2nd, Yakupov is not the kind of player the Leafs are looking for; Toronto is building their team with a group of young hard working players that are dedicated to becoming better athletes and people. Yakupov is a whiner that threatens to leave to the KHL when he gets criticized.

3rd, This trade hurts Toronto more than it helps them; Toronto is trying to keep/acquire young assets, not move them.

30 Aug 2015 03:44:24
Thats jsut awful, Zero need for Edm to trade him right now and especially for that crap! Two years $2.5M and now older stronger wiser mature and will be playing with Nuge and or McDavid! Zero need to trade him for that package, nice try - jk

30 Aug 2015 03:45:26
And what is the point of that draft pick trade? Zero. I don't get it. Just that bored hey?

30 Aug 2015 08:08:32
He hasn't proved to be a first overall but he's far from a bust and he doesn't have an attitude problem

30 Aug 2015 08:20:40
How about Lander, Davidson, Moroz and 2016 3rd for JVR? Leafs get depth at every position.

31 Aug 2015 00:49:20
@stammers2leafs2016 when did he threaten to go to the khl when did he whine. sure he had problems with eakins but he was being put on the 4th line when he was coming of a good rookie season . personally I think it was the fact that he was playing with a regressing gagner and no 2nd line center(with the exception of roy) for most of those seasons.

28 Aug 2015 16:34:50
Pittsburgh:Rob scuderi, Jeff zaktoff, 2016 2nd, 2016 3rd, 2016 6th
Toronto: roman polak(50%retained) james reimer


Leafs get picks for the rebuild and assets that they could possibly flip. Pens get a legit backup In reimer, and a good Dman in polak

Thoughts?

28 Aug 2015 13:34:20

That Malkin package is cute

28 Aug 2015 17:25:48
No. Just. no.

28 Aug 2015 17:49:29
Wow.
Would you trade Bergeron for Kunitz, Perron, Lovejoy, 2017 1st and 2017 2nd?

Also Carolina won't move a 2nd for an aging Seidenberg

28 Aug 2015 18:00:00
Great malkin package.

28 Aug 2015 18:00:21
(that was sarcasm to everyone)

28 Aug 2015 23:29:39
No from Boston on the Nashville on krecjci is underrated he could get that alone and more.if you switched Eriksson with krijic I'd accept that deal from pitsburge.

29 Aug 2015 14:30:26
Can these boston trades stop?

31 Aug 2015 12:34:02
@Jordiebenn. they'd porbably stop if other people put up other team trade offers but as it stands it just appears to be bruins fans putting up posts. why should anyone stop. if they're not as knowledgeable in other teams they're going to stick to what thet know. maybe try putting your own trade ideas up there.

27 Aug 2015 00:36:10
Pit//MTL

Pens trade Chris Kunitz and a 4th round pick to MTL

For Gilbert, Flynn, Joonas Nattinen and 3rd round pick.

Montreal would a acquire an aging forward but who scored 35 goals 2 seasons ago. He'd clearly be the no. 2 left winger on Montreal.
Pittsburgh acquires Gilbert, a capable puck moving top 4 D man and who could fill Pittsburgh's defensive woes. They also acquire Flynn, who could be a healthy scratch or a fourth liner on the Pens. They also deepen their prospect pool by acquiring Joonas Nattinen and a 3rd round pick. Both team address their needs (Pit: defence and MTL: scoring. Both teams then head in as one of the most dangerous teams in the NHL.

27 Aug 2015 22:22:16
I'd rather keep Kunitz if they can afford him.

25 Aug 2015 21:42:10
Last Minute Trades before the season:
----
Winnipeg: Pavelec and Byfuglien
Detroit: Howard and Quincey

Both teams fix their weaknesses.
----
Pittsburgh: Perron
Detroit: Abdelkader and a 2nd 2015

Pens then sign Cody Franson to a long term deal with an AAV of 4.5mil.
----

25 Aug 2015 22:29:54
sooo pens get a more physical and also more productive player (ppg last year) and they ALSO get the 2nd round pick. ah yeah right, the pick is in 2015 so it doesn't affect the value a lot right?

25 Aug 2015 16:39:38
Edmonton trades Draisaitl and 3rd round pick
Toronto trades Bernier,Bozak or Gauthier and Pitts first

That way Edmonton has two young goalies to run with this yr just in case one falters.
A third line center and an extra first to trade to fill in other holes if they need to.

25 Aug 2015 18:54:38
Meant to put jvr or pitts first

25 Aug 2015 18:58:07
would have to be gauthier, bozak wouldn't be enough

25 Aug 2015 23:54:10
Bernier, JVR, Gauthier for Draisaitl is a pretty big package I don't know if the Oilers could pass that up. What do you think?

26 Aug 2015 01:32:57
You just don't think things through, do you?

Edmonton already has 3 goalies signed on a 1-way deal.
If we get another goalie without giving up one. It will be horrible.
That means Ben Scrivens + Anders Nilsson in the AHL.

And just completely forget about Lauren Brossoit.

Oh, and the leafs add :)

26 Aug 2015 05:49:45
Trade Scrivens. Run with Bernier, Talbot and Nilsson and Broissoit. Easy solution

26 Aug 2015 07:03:11
Lol.

1. Find a team that wants Scrivens (very hard to find, everybody has their rosters set, especially goalies).

2. Brossoit wants playing time, and he deserves it.

3. eetu laurikainen can play a AHL backup, and he certainly didn't sign in north america to play in the ESCHL.

26 Aug 2015 14:20:28
Way too much for an unproven player. JVR by himself is worth Draisitl with Edm adding

26 Aug 2015 22:03:53
Lol

Isn't Boston looking for a back up? I don't think it would be thaaat hard to trade him. I also think Broissoit deserves some playing time. Beat Nilsson for the starter job. I'm not a 100% for making this trade I just think it's a pretty good return.

25 Aug 2015 05:45:42
Edmonton trades Yakupov, Purcell, Draisatl to Toronto for JVR, Spaling, Gauthier and a 3rd rd pick

Pouliot can play RW on the top 6 for Edmonton
Hall. McDavid. Eberle
JVR. RNH. Pouliot

Leafs trade Leivo, Purcell, Lupul and Pitts 1st rd pick to Arizona for Boedker

Arizona needs wingers plus cap to reach the cap sealing. Boedker will probably leave Arizona at the end of the year so getting a decent prospect and a 1st rd pick is good even though they have to take two cap dumps that could still benefit them. Leafs are stock piled with forward prospects. Trading Leivo is no big deal. And getting rid of two cap dumps is good. But getting rid of the 1st is a decent sized cost for it. Well they do get a top 6 guy in Boedker who is fairly young to help the Leads rebuild.

Leafs trade Bozak to New Jersey for a 3rd rd pick

Leafs trade Polak to Columbus for a 3rd rd pick

Overall I think these are very realistic scenarios for what's happening recently

Leafs
Boedker. Kadri. Yakupov
Winnik. Draisatl? Parenteau
Beck. Holland. Panik
Matthias. Arcobello. Komarov

Rielly. Phaneuf
Gardiner. Marcincin
Hunwick. Robidas

Bernier. Reiner

25 Aug 2015 07:43:37
Take out Draisaitl and you might have a chance with this ;)

25 Aug 2015 07:49:26
The question is not if you are high, but just how high you are

25 Aug 2015 14:11:01
*reads 1st trade*

"This has got to be leafs99"

*scrolls down*

"Yep. "

*continues scrolling*

25 Aug 2015 16:28:29
Wow Mr. Stammer. That must of took u a couple hours to think of. All your ideas are crap. U come up with nothing. I put up a whole bunch of stuff just for fun. Calm down.

25 Aug 2015 16:32:38
Ya not enough from Toronto. Draisaitl_94 U guys keep yak with a center like Mcdavid he might shine. But once again I do want Draisaitl in Toronto.

25 Aug 2015 16:53:03
As a leafs fan I love the 1st trade for both teams if you take out Draisaitl and maybe add a pick going to Toronto.

26 Aug 2015 01:51:15
Lol not even one believable.

I feel bad for the dude.

25 Aug 2015 05:32:36
MTL/Pit

To Pit: Gilbert, Tinordi, Bozon, 5 th round pick

To MTL: Perron and a 4 th round pick

Pittsburgh gets a defender ( which they desperately need), a defensive prospect, a skilled prospects LW.

Montreal gets a 2nd line LW with so much skill and great hands and surely get more offence.

Patches-Chucky-Semin
Perron-Plekanec-Gallagher
Desharnais-Eller-Kassian
Smith-Pelly-Mitchell-Weise

Subban-Markov
Petry-Beaulieu
Pateryn-Emelin

Price
Tokarski


I think it's a great trade for both teams. Montreal uses d-men to get forwards and Pittsburgh get a good d-man in gilbert to fill their hole on defence, and then let a roster player or a prospect take Perron's spot. That's the kind of move Montreal should make more often.

Thoughts??

26 Aug 2015 00:05:33
I actually like this one.

24 Aug 2015 18:33:23
Jarred Tinordi is being shopped by nhl teams. The Montreal Canadiens are again interested in Nail Yakupov. Next week, you should see a boatload of deals around the league so pay close attention to everything that's happening, because Boston, Philadelphia, Arizona, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Edmonton and Montreal all have interest in pending UFA Cody Franson. Montreal has also shown interest in Curtis Glencross, Andrew Ladd, Dustin Byfuglien, jiri Hudler, Chris Kunitz, David Perron and Jeff Skinner. So there might be a deal soon enough that could send either one of these players to Montreal. Montreal trade bait: Plekanec, Desharnais, Eller, Emelin, Gilbert, Tokarski, Flynn and Tinordi.

24 Aug 2015 19:37:56
why would montreal want franson? so he could be their 3rd rhd with an 45 millions aav?

24 Aug 2015 19:48:44
Except you're 'trade bait' likely won't get most of those players.

24 Aug 2015 20:12:56
was hoping habs sign erhoff to play with petry, franson is overrated and don't see the use for him

id rather talk to vancouver about hamuis anh despres or nj gelinas

24 Aug 2015 20:33:59
Peping summary @Pksubs76! Sweet to reach the grand finale of this trade window - going to be really interesting to see all moves and get to speculate on who made the 'best' deals in different ways (immediate, long term, offence, defence. etc.) and then wiiihaaa head into the season and see how things goes.

24 Aug 2015 20:55:57
Now tell me how you plan on acquiring Byfuglien, Ladd, Skinner, Hudler and Perron with that trade bait

25 Aug 2015 00:40:52
I said one of them

25 Aug 2015 01:11:11
So Montreal trades Plekanec,DD,Eller,Emelin,Gilbert ,Flynn,Tokarski & Tinordi and You think they can bring back players like Ladd, Buff, Skinner, Hudler & Perron?
Man you're so full of crap I bet your eyes are brown.

24 Aug 2015 00:14:53
From a website.
PROPOSED TRADE (idea):

St. Louis Blues trade:

• Kevin Shattenkirk

Pittsburgh Penguins for:

• Nick Bonino

• Rob Scuderi

• Brian Dumoulin

• Oscar Sundqvist

• 1st or 2nd round draft pick 

WHY THIS TRADE MAKES SENSE:

Pittsburgh Penguins: PIT would acquire 

• Kevin Shattenkirk. A top 2 defenseman, who I think is battling with Subban/Karlsson/Weber with best offensive defenseman in the NHL. Also just imagine Letang and Shattenkirk on one team, with Crosby/Malkin/Kessel ETC.

St.Louis Blues: STL would acquire 

• Nick Bonino, and perfectly capable 2nd line center in my opinion, he can play in all situations, and is a player every team should have.

• Rob Scuderi, who is a top 6 defenseman who brings leadership in the locker room, and is a guy the coach can trust to always make the right choice. 

• Brian Dumoulin who is a all round good defenseman, he can move the puck, he can hit, skate, and defend others from getting in scoring positions.

• Oscar Sundqvist who has offensive abilities, and he has a string defensive mind, if he can add strength, discipline and weight to his game, he us projected to be a effective two way C in the

• 1st/2nd round draft pick to get a decent NHL prospect.

Overall fair deal

24 Aug 2015 05:25:50
Wow not even close.

24 Aug 2015 15:54:58
Do you run sportsblog too? Or just keep forgetting to site your sources when you copy and paste

24 Aug 2015 16:59:04
No from Pittsburg but that's what the blues would want.

24 Aug 2015 20:13:48
blues say hell no. that's horrible. why don't we trade tarasenko for your third line players geez

24 Aug 2015 21:18:23
I said it's from a website. I was saying it was mine. I said I found these off websites. Calm down

23 Aug 2015 07:01:54
Islanders trade Kulemin to Pittsburgh for Pascal Dupuis, 3rd rd pick

21 Aug 2015 17:42:02
trades for habs this season :

(if alexei emelin doesn't play well)
MTL-FLA

mtl : Alexei Emelin, 6th round pick
fla : Willie Mitchell, 5th round pick

breakdown : I think the only way to get rid of Emelin's contract is to trade him for another player with a high cap-hit but, while Emelin is the better player, Mitchell is an UFA at the end of the season.

(at the training camp if pateryn earns a
roster spot)
MTL-PIT

mtl: Gilbert ( 900 000 retained )
pit: 3rd round pick, 5th round pick

Breakdown : Pittsburgh needs help on defense and Montreal might not need Gilbert if Pateryn is better than him, which will probably happen.

(If Eller plays well at the training camp)
MTL-FLA

mtl: Thomas Plekanec
fla: Jayce Hawryluk, 2nd round pick, 4th round pick

Breakdown : This trade could help the Panthers a lot by giving them a legit 1st or 2nd line center. Also, Plekanec could have a great chemistry with Jagr. Montreal gets a good prospect, and two picks. The only thing that I don't know is if the Habs would trade Plekanec to a team within their division.

Finally (posted it yesterday but needed some changes)
MTL-ARI

mtl: Zach Fucale, David Desharnais, 2nd round pick.
ari: Mikkel Boedker

taking out Tinordi so the value is quite fair.

Lineup ;

Paccioretty - Galchenyuk - Semin
Boedker - Eller - Gallagher
Weise - De La Rose - Kassian
Flynn - Mitchell - Smith-Pelly

Markov - Subban
Beaulieu - Petry
Tinordi , Barberio - Pateryn

Montreal's cap hit : approx. 62 500 000

Just some ideas ahah doubt it will happen

21 Aug 2015 19:14:14
Think the Panthers have more than enough depth at C with Barkov, Bjugstad, Bolland and others.

21 Aug 2015 16:29:42
A new idea on my letang for shattenkirk idea:
Penguins: letang, Perron, 2016 3rd
Blues:shattenkirk, bergland

Letang

21 Aug 2015 17:34:53
Srry it cut me off I said

Shattenkirk>letang imo
Perron>bergland imo
3rd=icing on top

21 Aug 2015 17:41:07
Hey Guy. I will give you all he reasons why this will not happen.

1) hitch and perron didn't click that's why perron was shipped to EDM.
2) To much salary comming back. Pens crippled them selves with the letang contract. This trade would put blues way over cap.
3) Letang is injury prone with blood clot issues. wouldn't touch him with 10 ft pole.
4) Shatts is >>>>> letang in age, actually playing defense, and contract.

Blues say no with out a thought and blocks pens GMs number

21 Aug 2015 18:58:19
Never thought I'd say this but for the most part I agree with Russian Tank.

22 Aug 2015 02:10:56
Shattenkirk is going to get an equally high paid contract in a year or is it two? I say it's a know from both teams, just a lateral move

23 Aug 2015 03:14:18
Shats will get 5-6 long term cap goes up and contracts Brower Ott gunnerson which is about 10 11 mil plus 1-2 cap increase that's 12 milish to give shats Swartz backes raises and bring in sobotka 1.7 arbitrated and rattie fabbri and smaltz on entry level money won't be an issue and if for some reason it is gunner will go first

23 Aug 2015 03:15:14
Oh yeah shatty is still rfa ball is in blues court

21 Aug 2015 16:13:39
NJ:
- David Perron

PIT:
- Stefan Matteau
- Blake Coleman
- 17 3rd
- 16 4th
- 17 6th

The Penguins get a bit younger after losing one of their top offensive prospects (Kapanen).
Matteau seriously need-a-last-chance. He hasn't performed well in the NHL. And does not put points on the board at the AHL Level. Coleman looking like a potential 3rd line player.

21 Aug 2015 17:53:09
PIT obviously wants to win now, so why would they downgrade? perron is easily the best player in the trade and its not like he makes some absurd amount of money, only 3.3 mil I believe.

21 Aug 2015 18:24:26
I would think Perron could fetch more, just my opinion.

21 Aug 2015 19:16:24
Yeah agreed with Shankar & Bud. Makes no sense for the penguins IMO.

20 Aug 2015 23:54:18
Trade Report: The Boston Bruins are talking to multiple teams on Dennis Seidenberg (3 goals 11 assist 81 games). The Edmonton Oilers, Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, and 1 other team at the moment have all shown serious interest in him, but at the moment the Edmonton Oilers and the Colorado Avalanche are the leading contenders on Dennis Seidenberg.

Boston Bruins are taking one final run at Cody Franson. If they want to sign him, they have to make roster/cap space. Dennis Seidenberg/few others are in trade talks, but Seidenberg is the most imminent one of all.

Cody Franson would like to sign a multi year deal, but at this point no team is willing to offer him one. Multiple Reports/Sources have told me that if Boston/Columbus don't offer a reasonable contract to Franson, he will sign in Pittsburgh on an underpaid 1 year contract, and get a chance to lift the Stanley Cup.

However if Boston Bruins can offer a reasonable/multi year contract Cody Franson is more than willing to sign with the B's, but the only way to do that is by trading Dennis Seidenberg.

EDM has shown serious interest in Seidenberg with knowing they only have 3M in cap and they're not a contender for the Stanley cup, EDM will not land a defenseman through UFA. Sources say EDM is willing to offer Letestu or Hendricks and picks/prospects.

BOS talked to EDM on Nail Yakupov but the only way Oilers would trade Yakupov were if Boston gave other significant pieces with Seidenberg, but from what i'm hearing I wouldn't say Yakupov will for sure be an Oiler in 2015 - 2016.

I don't believe it. I know it's not your thoughts and you just copied it from another site, I'm just saying I don't believe it. Oilers have too many dmen to deal with as is, I don't see what adding Seidenberg does for them. And I don't mind Seidenberg, I just don't see the point of trading for him.

Seidenberg has more value to Boston that Yakupov. It's Edmonton that would have to add more, unless it was a straight up cap dump.

Pittsburgh trades Dupuis and a 2nd rd pick to Arizona for Boedker

Pittsburgh trades Kunitz, Perron, Scuderi, Derrick Pouliot, 2017 1st rd pick and a 2017 2nd rd pick to Carolina for Skinner, Faulk and Hainsey

Perron=Skinner(considering Skinners inconsistentcy+injuries)

Scuderi + 2nd rd pick=Hainsey(Scuderi is kind of a cap dump so higher pick)

Kunitz, Pouliot, 1st rd pick = Faulk(Faulk has proved he is a top end defenseman, good cap for Pittsburgh)


Pittsburgh lineup-
Skinner. Crosby. Hornqvist
Boedker. Malkin. Kessel
Plotnikov Bonino. Fehr
Sundqvist. Cullen. Bennett

Maata. Letang
Hainsey. Faulk
LoveJoy. Cole

Fleury. Zatkoff

Thoughts?

Canes won't ship Faulk.

20 Aug 2015 20:00:54
Carolina ain't trading faulk and pittsburgh ain't trading pouliot or another 1st

20 Aug 2015 20:09:11
1. NOT enough for Boedker.
2. Carolina hangs up. They aren't trading Faulk no matter what. Unless they are blown away with the offer and that isn't it.
