Pittsburgh trades Maatta, Sprong to Flyers for Ghost.
11 Mar 2017 21:55:19
Sprong had 7 points recently in a game I don't think he's getting traded lmao.
11 Mar 2017 21:55:40
And regardless I wouldn't trade mattaa for ghost after the season he's had this year.
11 Mar 2017 22:41:33
I think Ghost is going to be a 1 year wonder.
12 Mar 2017 00:51:47
Hahaha. You should change your name man. Even the real Elliot Friedman wouldn't post this garbage proposals. What an insult to Elliot himself.
14 Mar 2017 19:53:32
Maata for ghost would be a possibility. Ppl don't give maatta much thought because he's not flashy but still a very good young D. Ghost obviously has offensive upside and flare but with that is risk. This year has shown more warts than beauty in his game. 2 very different D but value to a team might not be far off. As for sprong being added, he's the 3rd 18 year old not drafted in the first round to make the NHL in 15 years (only Bergeron for Bruins and oreilly for avs did before) and he didn't make the Carolina Hurricanes or maple leafs last year. It was the pens. He didn't stay long but obviously they value him extremely high.
28 Feb 2017 18:15:48
To pit: Duchene
To col: Fleury, pouliot, fehr, 1st, 3rd.
28 Feb 2017 19:15:26
Uhhhh nah man.
28 Feb 2017 21:02:39
Don't know where 3-4 "high end" pieces are there. Pouliot isn't high end anymore, a penguins first is usually too late to be considered high, almost a second of other teams.
28 Feb 2017 21:19:19
Lol. Easy no from Colorado.
28 Feb 2017 00:01:35
Read that Pittsburgh and Washington are in a bidding war for Shattenkirk.
And that Washington is only in it to drive up the price for rivals Pittsburgh and NYR.
28 Feb 2017 02:22:16
Yeah mike commodore was saying that.
28 Feb 2017 02:38:59
Blues beat writer just said deal is done between blues caps waiting for details.
28 Feb 2017 02:43:54
Shattenkirk to Washington is already a done deal via multiple sources.
28 Feb 2017 02:53:28
Damnnnnnnnn Washington Wow.
28 Feb 2017 03:07:34
1st 2nd and a prospect.
28 Feb 2017 03:08:10
Zach Ranford, 1st 2017 and 2nd 2018 it's looking like.
27 Feb 2017 18:26:20
WPG: Stafford (50% Retained), Pavelec, Kosmachuk
27 Feb 2017 18:18:45
DAL: Honka, Niemi (50% Retained)
28 Feb 2017 00:29:16
Fleury apparently approached management meaning pressure might be on a little. If they can get a deal like that I think they would grab it.
27 Feb 2017 18:17:18
CGY: Elliotte, 2nd around Pick 2017
27 Feb 2017 18:54:56
Calgary is capped out. Can't attain more Salary.
Deal is a no go.
28 Feb 2017 00:37:47
Actually ft4a, they're at $69 mill of just over 70 cap and haven't activated LTIR of ladsliav smid which would give them 3.4 million (pro-rated) more to spend this season. He has Elliott going back (2.5mill) so they can take on over 6mill in salary at the deadline without a problem. Fleury is 5.5 or 5.75 I believe? With widemans 5.25, englunds 2.9 and stones 2 mill done this year, fleury would be fine there for his last 2 seasons of the deal too.
27 Feb 2017 17:07:48
2018 1st Pick ( conditional )
Hornqvist has modified NTC but who knows maybe he would except a trade to Edmonton. He will be a UFA after 2018.
27 Feb 2017 19:11:18
really in what world would this make sense. Please explain.
26 Feb 2017 18:39:06
M.A. Fleury (2yrs @ 5.75)
L. Bouma (1yr @ 2.2)
B. Leipsic (RFA)
J. Drouin (RFA)
26 Feb 2017 18:54:13
Horrible offers for MAF and Drouin come on man.
26 Feb 2017 19:38:51
Drouin will not be traded. And especially not for a crap offer like this.
26 Feb 2017 23:07:48
Wow. Brutal for Pittsburgh and Tampa.
27 Feb 2017 06:30:23
Pits i think will get a better offer on fleury but i don't believe the value is terribly far off because of the expansion draft. The drouin trade is trash.
28 Feb 2017 11:10:55
Id take johnson and elliot over fleury. Plus flames need bouma/ hathaway for physicality for playoffs. i'd never pull this trade.
25 Feb 2017 18:18:48
Hansen trade has to be in the works. Given his production in minimum action and his 2.5 cap hit next year i have a couple of ideas.
Pit: Sprong, condition 3rd( if pit makes it to 3rd round and Hansen plays 50% of games.)
Van: Hansen, 2018 5th
Was: Riley Barber, Stansilav Galiev, Condition pick( 3rd if Was makes 3rd round, 2nd if Was makes finals)
25 Feb 2017 18:36:14
Pitt won't do that Sprong is a top prospect.
25 Feb 2017 22:55:48
How about the other 2 trades.
26 Feb 2017 04:22:04
Tuch is also a top prospect.
26 Feb 2017 18:04:00
The price for Hansen right now is a top prospect or young player that is good.
27 Feb 2017 05:10:32
Sprong isn't a top prospect. He has upside but he isn't lighting it up and is injured.
25 Feb 2017 05:47:58
Pittsburgh: Maata, Pouliot,1st, Jarry, Kunitz
Colorado gets a young top 4 d, a defense prospect, Top 3 NHL goalie prospect and a cap dump
Pittsburgh gets a 35+ goalie scoring potential player when in Pittsburgh lineup
Then Edler at 50% for 2018 2nd
21 Feb 2017 10:45:21
LA: Brayden McNabb, and Jeff Zatkoff
PIT: Tristan Jarry, Cameron Gaunce and conditional 2017 4th round pick.
*condition is that if Pens win cup pick becomes a 3rd.
LA needs to replenish their goaltending depth especially if Quick is going to become injury prone (2 major ones in the last 4 seasons) . Jarry could be a fringe starter, but I see him definitely being a backup in the NHL and a better one then Jeff Zatkoff who's sucked this year. Gaunce translates to be a good bottom pairing player.
The Kings need to move one of McNabb or Forbort before the expansion draft or they'll lose them for nothing. I pick McNabb because he's older, and he has another year of term which teams will like.
Pens need another top 4 D since Maataa went out with injury and McNabb is good at playing with very mobile D-men like Deew Doughty and Alec Martinez, so he should be able to play with Kris Letang or Trevor Daley.
21 Feb 2017 15:08:55
Pens have like $100,000 in cap space I think, gunna be difficult to make any move, I imagine they couldn't afford this deal, Pens have zero use for Zatkoff I'd imagine but solid proposal.
21 Feb 2017 15:48:35
Pens actually have about $5.1 mil at the deadline due to prorated salaries and IR, so they could easily fit thia.
18 Feb 2017 05:56:08
PENGUINS:Doan Arizona: Third round pick become a second round pick if pens win the cup
18 Feb 2017 09:37:28
pens have no need for doaner, they have better players and plenty of leadership.
19 Feb 2017 15:29:15
Brendon Morrow was a bust. Iginla was a bust. Don't see them going this route again.
17 Feb 2017 23:17:06
Now that Matta is out 6 weeks, and only if Enstrom waived his no movement clause (also injured 2 weeks)
WPG: Enstrom (50% Retained)
16 Feb 2017 16:42:10
Rumor I read, not sure how legit but interesting thought.
Leafs trade: JVR and Roman Polak
Ducks trade: Kevin Bieksa, C Stoner and Sam Steel.
Ducks have been looking for a top 6 winger with size for a while and have been linked to JVR before. He had success under Carlyle in TO also. No secret leafs want veteran D to help out rielly and zaitsev and carrick. Bieksa would need to waive his NMC, but if he does that helps ducks because they could then protect fowler, vatanen ans lindholm. Stoner is a decent D stop gap on the blueline while players develop. JVR and polak is 6.5 mill while stoner and bieksa are 7.25. Both could be used for a run to the playoffs and only have next year left on their deals. Stoner could be exposed to Vegas after this season.
Sam steel is the kicker. He was selected late in the first round with the pens pick that the leafs sent the ducks for Andersen. Has over 100 pts in 45 games for WHL.
Not the return I thought Leafs would want for JVR but has a lot of moving parts that seem to benefit both teams. I would assume prospects leafs want to accumulate should be D, but any young player with potential is an asset. Maybe they can then move other young forwards or package steel.
16 Feb 2017 16:58:42
Yah I'd rather keep JVR then have two cap dumps and Sam Steel. May as well throw in Ziatsev/ Carrick to because one of them would be exposed because of Biska.
16 Feb 2017 18:24:08
Yeah. Leafs would then have to figure out their own expansion issues. Again, not my original thought, just saw it and found it to be in the realm of possibility. Just get tired of leaf fans saying JVR for a teams best 2 prospects and a first and then the opposite of being offered bottom pairing D and a 3rd for him. I saw some value in this deal from both sides.
16 Feb 2017 18:26:11
Bieksa and Stoner are essentially cap dumps. Big no from T. O.
16 Feb 2017 19:03:42
I can see the Leafs taking one cap dump from the Ducks but not two and definitely not just for Steel.
16 Feb 2017 19:36:58
Thats pretty bad. Honestly
That basically means JVR has much less value than Andersen, cause andersen got steel and a 2nd, but all jvr can get is steel and two negative value.
16 Feb 2017 20:46:35
I don't think it's crazy to assume JVR could have less value than Andersen. A 26 year old starter that came with a new deal on your terms at a reasonable cap hit vs a winger who puts up good numbers with a great cap hit but only one year remaining till a big raise. I've always been a JVR fan but the infusion of youth on the leafs has really showed some of his warts. Slower than almost every forward on the leafs and caught being lazy and soft on plays too often.
16 Feb 2017 21:23:08
yeah i know, but a 44 point guy i'm 55 games, and a constant threat putting up over 25+ goals per season is probably at least on the same lvl as Andersen. Idk just my opinion.
16 Feb 2017 21:41:10
Fair enough. Trust me, I'm not a guy to tear a player down, I agree JVR is a good player and an offensive threat. I've just really noticed the negatives in his game this year, and I'm sure pro scouts from other teams have. They will use that in negotiations and think that some leaf fans shooting for the moon in terms of their trade expectations for him are going to be disappointed. Oilers didn't get for hall what most would expect prior. When you're shopping for D with wingers, you're in a tough spot.
16 Feb 2017 22:46:23
totally agree bud. however, as a leaf fan i'd prefer a dman in the deal than another forward ya know? like it may be closer with dman prospect, bieksa, stoner than steel + the two. just cause of torontos plethora of forwards. but yeah, you make some solid points.
17 Feb 2017 04:15:53
Yeah For sure. That's what I mentioned that I assumed the prospect coming back should be a D but if they aren't willing to give up a Theodore or montour in it then maybe you take a chance on a kid lighting up the WHL in Sam steel and either add him to a package to get your D, or he makes other guys easier to part with knowing you have another card in the deck. Interesting to see anyway, I read this rumor and then heard right after that the leafs used LTIR to free up over 10mill this morning and thought maybe there's some truth to it. Also Kyle dubas and 3 leaf scouts taking in avs-Sabres tonight and Adrian dater reported leafs inquired about landeskog. JVR replacement?!?!
15 Feb 2017 00:24:48
Mon: Matteau, 2nd
Cal: Kulak, 4th
Chi: McNeil, 4th
Dal: Lehtonen, Nemeth, 2nd
Pit: Fleury, Kuhnackl
Not saying that these are all going to happen, but some potential trades the Stars could make at the deadline.
15 Feb 2017 03:35:13
Don't mind the Oilers trade i think that's not bad.
Chicago no, cap reasons.
Can't see Montreal getting sharp.
And Calgary one possibly? He did play well there.
Pitt possibly if they get desperate to trade fleury.
15 Feb 2017 20:24:57
Value seems fair in these. Some could happen.
12 Feb 2017 16:16:07
Colorado :MAF, Pouliot, Maata, Jarry,1st,2nd.
12 Feb 2017 16:44:44
I jus can't see 6 peices for Duchene. Regardless of quality. ect.
I also don't see why Colorado would want MAF.
12 Feb 2017 18:13:29
Varlamov is out till the end of the year.
12 Feb 2017 20:17:52
Even though Varlamov is out, I still don't see why they would want an older goalie who probably doesn't fit into what these guys wanna do.
19 Feb 2017 15:34:16
Pens would not trade the orgs number 2 and 3 goalie in the same season.
12 Feb 2017 06:00:56
According to sportsnet Pittsburgh could be interested in Duchene
Duchene for MAF, Pouliot, Maata,1st, Jarry,2nd
Avs get a goalie till the end of the season and maybe longer, almost NHL ready d prospect, top 4 young defenseman,1st,2nd, Good goalie prospect
Duchene will probably get put on the lw of Crosby
Pittsburgh make another solid run for the cup.
12 Feb 2017 07:01:52
Absolutely no need for fleury that's just doing Pitt a favor.
12 Feb 2017 13:45:49
If ducks move a young D it's not going to be straight up for a 30+ year old with a massive contract. 7.25 million is just too much for krejci for the next 4 years. Especially when they have getzlaf at almost 8 mill and kesler around the 6 range as their two centres. If someone is taking that contract, an overpaid or lesser quality player is the return. Not a really good 25 year old dman making 4 mill. Fowler will go in a deal for a scoring winger if he goes (JVR, Pacioretty, skinner)
12 Feb 2017 03:06:09
To New Jersey
12 Feb 2017 08:20:21
Fowler >> Krejci.
11 Feb 2017 03:56:19
Dallas trades Patrick sharp to Montreal for a 2nd rnd
Edmonton trades d mark Fayne to Ottawa for a 3rd round
Pittsburgh trades g Marc Andre fleury to Dallas Stars for g anti niemi and a 2nd pick.
11 Feb 2017 05:58:49
Lmao if Ottawa wants mark fayne they can have him for free.
11 Feb 2017 07:37:24
Lol mcj and we still wouldn't agree to the deal.
11 Feb 2017 11:19:51
Think Sharp could get more.
Too much for Fayne.
Not enough for MAF, Neimi is awful at best.
11 Feb 2017 16:44:11
Ya exactly sens lol.
13 Feb 2017 19:26:51
MAF isn`t that great either. He wins games 6-5, 5-4, 7-6.Hmmm 84 GA in 29 games only for 3.17GAA. I would keep Niemi instead. Good thing he`s on a potent team.
11 Feb 2017 03:26:46
To Penguins: Stafford
To Jets: Schultz
11 Feb 2017 06:00:47
Holy rubbish this is stupid.
11 Feb 2017 11:20:40
Justin "Norris" Schultz for Stafford? Lmao.
11 Feb 2017 16:21:26
Basically as dumb as trading Mcdonaugh for Gomez, oh wait.
