1st trade:
Carolina has no use for MA Fleury. They have Eddie Lack and Cam Ward. Plus if they take on Fleury that means Lack is more than likely taken by Vegas.

2nd trade:
Eberle>Hornqvist. Edmonton is looking to improve this year and Eberle will be more useful to them. Let alone Yakupov being a wild card and could take a step forward this year.

3rd trade:
Everyone knows that Anaheim needs to move salary out in order to sign Lindholm and Rakell, that being said, they can get a hell of a lot more than that for Cam Fowler.

4th trade:
Seems reasonable, I'd keep Kuhnhackl but whatevs.

21 Aug 2016 01:29:54
This ain't NHL 16.

21 Aug 2016 01:36:04
Value aside, why would Penguins trade Hornqvist after just winning the cup? And why would Oilers trade Eberle and Yak for a forward and some late picks?
Anyways Penguins just won the cup and no way they gut half their team. I could see maybe Kunitz and or Fleury being moved but that's about it.
Easy pass from Canes.
No from Oilers.
Super easy pass from Anaheim, they could get a much better return.
No from Pens, Rousell is alright good energy third liner but so is T. K and he's much cheaper.

sorry to say but a pretty weak post overall imo.

21 Aug 2016 01:37:43
Also they would have no cap space. I'm not gunna do the math but I predict if these trades happend they would be over the cap. Skinner, Fowler, Rousell, Eberle and Yak is like 20 million and Penguins only move Fleury and Kunitz (by the way Canes don't need either of those players at all)

21 Aug 2016 01:44:35
Carolina says no
Edmonton says no
Pitt says no
Idk about the last one.

21 Aug 2016 02:57:17
Carolina arguably has the worst goaltending tandem in the league right now and they need a goalie like Fleury. Yakupov is only worth a late second at most and Hornqvist isn't a big step down, he can easily play first line and they get a third and late second. Everyone says they can get more for Fowler but they get a high end wing prospect and a (probably) high second round pick. They are already very good defensively and could use another nhl ready forward prospect.

22 Aug 2016 16:20:27
Did we just make 4 big trades to end up with Malkin as a 3rd line centre? At this point why not trade him to get doughty or something lol.

22 Aug 2016 17:05:53
Hornquist? lol. Nah Pitts can keep him.
Edm will however take Crosby or Malkin for the 8.5 mill in salary sent over with Eberle and Nail. Maybe even a 4th rounder to boot.

19 Aug 2016 01:24:38
Does any1 know much about Thomas dipauli? Just wondering cause the pens are reportedly going to sign him. Does any body know like a best case scenario nhl comparable or just a nhl comparable? Thanks.

19 Aug 2016 01:33:54
Good on face offs, likely AHL or ECHL player for a few years to develop. Potential of a fourth liner or career AHLer.

19 Aug 2016 02:17:42
That's what I read.

19 Aug 2016 03:30:41
Ok, thanks.

19 Aug 2016 05:19:37
This is from HockeysFuture which is a decent site for prospects etc but seems to be lacking recent updates. Sounds like McJesus is pretty similar to this.

Talent Analysis
DiPauli is an interesting case. Prior to the 2014-15 season, his third at Notre Dame, he was a high-energy two-way player with limited offensive upside (just 17 points in 67 games) . Then, he burst onto the scene with a 21 assist, 29 point effort in 41 games for the Irish last season. He is good on faceoffs and works hard at both ends of the ice, so his offensive explosion is likely due to an uptick in ice time and improved line mates. In any event, he is a strong two-way center with a high motor and strong skating ability.

As of this writing, DiPauli is waiting to be signed by the Capitals or to be released as free agent. Should he sign with the Capitals, he will likely get a shot at the AHL or spend the year in the ECHL working on his offensive game. Ultimately, he could find himself playing the role of an effective third or fourth line center thanks to his ability in the faceoff circle and his high motor.

19 Aug 2016 07:16:11
Yeah BJ that's where I read it. I don't know why people are disagreeing yet nobody says what's true then lol.

19 Aug 2016 22:51:51
My guess is when it is all said and done he will be a 4th liner for the Pens at some point in his career. By the sounds of it he plays like Rust.

18 Aug 2016 19:43:00

PIT-Derrick Pouliot,2nd

Toronto gets a top 4 rookie dman can help with the rebuild and then get a 2nd
Pittsburgh get a great winger who can play with Malkin

ARI-3rd or 4th

PIT-Chris Kunitz

Pittsburgh clears cap space and Arizona gets closer to the cap floor


18 Aug 2016 21:15:17
Kunitz ain't worth a 3rd or fourth these days, maybe could get a 4th, but they have less cap space than Calgary so don't need help getting to the cap floor, remember they have datsyuk and pronger, less than 10 mil in cap space.

18 Aug 2016 22:17:30
Pouliot is no longer a rookie.

19 Aug 2016 02:20:18
Pouliot still young obviously but his value was much higher last off season when he was a 'could be great' prospect. His performances this season and especially down the stretch and being benched through playoffs wasnt flattering.

13 Aug 2016 08:13:35
To Calgary:
Chris Kunitz

To Pittsburgh:
Dennis Wideman
7th Round Pick 2017

Calgary would receive a veteran with playoff experience.
They are in need of support on the wings. Pittsburgh would gain a defense man that can play top 4 minutes to bolster their blue line which was a questionable area for them last season.

13 Aug 2016 08:21:31
Wideman does have a no movement clause but I would expect he would waive it to join the Stanley Cup Champions.

13 Aug 2016 09:31:28
I think Calgary would jump all over this one. They would perhaps need to add a bit.

13 Aug 2016 18:05:41
Calgary could change the 7th Round Pick to a 3rd or 4th Round one.

13 Aug 2016 18:46:15
pittsburgh already 1.3 m over the cap they can't take wideman contract at this point.

13 Aug 2016 18:52:34
They can put Pascal Dupius on LTIR.

12 Aug 2016 05:56:50
To Penguins:
Nail Yakupov
Cam Talbot (1.15 mil retained)
4th Round Pick 2017

To Oilers:
Derrick Pouliot
Marc-Andre Fleury

This trade would give the Penguins a solid winger that could become elite with a change of scenery and give them a proven backup goalie behind Matt Murray. The Oilers would get rid of a player that never really worked out for them and receive a player that also could use a change to reach their potential as well as an elite goalie.

12 Aug 2016 06:56:00
Talbot has an NMC I'm pretty sure.

12 Aug 2016 07:03:39
Lol oilers won't be retaining anything. And yeah Talbot had a NMC I think too.

12 Aug 2016 14:41:12
How is nail a solid forward. Pouliot is their young defender they need defense more than they need overrated never was forwards.

12 Aug 2016 14:59:51
Penguins will want a cheaper back up goalie and really have no need for Yak. The Oilers are stuck with him.

08 Aug 2016 18:05:12
Col- Blake Comeau
PIT- Chirs Kuntiz,4th

Nash-Ryan Ellis
Pit-Ian Cole,2nd

I'm not to sure about the value of Ellis is but thought I would give it a try

Antoine Vermette 1.5 mill 1 year
jiri hudler 2.5 mill 2 years

Pens make these trades because it clears some cap space

If Cullen doesn't resign the pens can go after.

08 Aug 2016 18:23:06
Not even close to fair for Ellis. Ian Cole is a 6/ 7 d man.

08 Aug 2016 18:49:59
Put a better player or a good prospect along with the 2nd round pick and that'll be closer to getting Ellis.

08 Aug 2016 23:46:54
@ McJesus
Pit-Trevor Daley

Nash- Ryan Ellis,3rd

Pens would do this cause they probably won't be able to resign Daley and NASH does this to get even strong on D

Is this one better or close?

09 Aug 2016 00:11:31
How about

Is it fair?

09 Aug 2016 01:54:26
D. Pouiliot and a 2nd=Ellis.

08 Aug 2016 23:46:54
@ McJesus
Pit-Trevor Daley

Nash- Ryan Ellis,3rd

Pens would do this cause they probably won't be able to resign Daley and NASH does this to get even strong on D

Is this one better or close?

09 Aug 2016 00:11:31
How about

Is it fair?

09 Aug 2016 01:54:26
D. Pouiliot and a 2nd=Ellis.

09 Aug 2016 06:01:54
I'd say no, because Daley is getting old and Ellis is entering his prime and I'd still rather have Ellis over Daley. But that Pouliot for Ellis is more closer than Daley.

08 Aug 2016 17:17:30
* DISCLAIMER- I know this will never happen, just looking at trade values
To PIT- jesse puljujärvi, Leon Draisitil, Darnell Nurse, Sekera, 2017 1st, 2018, 1st
To EDM- Crosby, Letang
Would help Edmonton with grilling a right shot poweplay qb, and you have arguably the best 2 player of this century playing together. Pits gets salary cap relief and nhl ready prospects


Whadaya think?

08 Aug 2016 17:38:18
Please no one else respond to this insanity.

08 Aug 2016 18:54:29
Um yeah this is bad, no from oil. Like really bad.

08 Aug 2016 19:06:21
Letang isn't the second best player of this century and Letang isn't playing the second pairing with Davidson either.

08 Aug 2016 19:32:03
If you want Crosby, the price is McJesus.

08 Aug 2016 22:22:45
We don't want Crosby bcuz we have McJesus lol .

09 Aug 2016 04:43:28
He wasn't saying letang is the second best player of this century lol he was saying Crosby and mcdavid could be the best 2 players of the 2000's. Still the entire idea is laughable, but atleast he isn't calling letang a generational player.

09 Aug 2016 05:21:10
We should be done with Edmonton proposals. They made some moves that should improve the team and let it ride.

09 Aug 2016 05:40:04
@unbiased Jim I realized that a while ago, but I just didn't care to reply about it.

09 Aug 2016 08:54:41
The point of this website is to propose our own trades so not posting any Oilers trades is impossible lol. Realistically yeah i agree but that's not the point of this site.

08 Aug 2016 09:56:17
PIT: Marc Andre Fleury
ARI: 2017 1st Round Pick, Mike Smith (25% Retained), 2018 2nd Round Pick.

08 Aug 2016 12:11:31
Fleury won't get that much. Also, Pittsburgh's price for him will drop dramatically by the deadline/ draft if he hasn't been dealt yet.

08 Aug 2016 16:46:40
No from Both teams to much from Arizona but Smiths contract is terrible.

07 Aug 2016 01:42:48
DAL: Antti Niemi, Valeri Nichushkin, 2nd Round Pick
PIT: Marc Andre Fleury, Eric Fehr.

05 Aug 2016 23:02:07
Re-posting a trade I saw the other day that I thought was interesting.

Penguins trade:
- Derrik Pouliot

Kings trade :
- Tanner Pearson


06 Aug 2016 00:50:23
I mean we could really use Pouliot, it's just that we need scoring and Pearson's improved every season and I'm expecting around 45-50 points next season and that could be to valuable to give up.

06 Aug 2016 02:11:55
Don't like this trade.

Because Lucic left The Kings could use all of their left wingers. And Tanner Pearson has been improving every season according to KingLover.

06 Aug 2016 02:13:24
Would that work cap wise? Also I think the pens need the defence more than the scoring, and I think la needs the scoring more than the d.

06 Aug 2016 02:19:50
I mean I'd do it if we got a guarantee from like a FA like Jori Hudler that he'd sign with us to replace Pears, but Idk.

06 Aug 2016 04:59:18
With the departure of Lucic and Brown declining even further Pearson is definitely more valuable to the kings in my eyes.

06 Aug 2016 05:21:16
You stole this trade.

06 Aug 2016 05:21:31
It was on HF Boards.

06 Aug 2016 05:42:10
LOL @bardown
Read my first sentence again. Nice try though buddy. Keep posting your Nylander for Lindholm trades haha.

06 Aug 2016 05:57:27
That's not even bad tho.

06 Aug 2016 06:07:03
I agree it's not bad, for the leafs. Terrible for ducks.

06 Aug 2016 17:13:08
So your saying that if Lindholm was on the Carolina Hurricanes deep D Corps and Toronto offered the Future 30 goal scorer you think the canes would Decline? It's not a bad trade in terms of pure value. Maybe in positional needs tho.

06 Aug 2016 19:45:39
Yeah the value is there but Penguins should probably keep Pouliot as they need D not forwards.

04 Aug 2016 20:46:08
Edmonton: Nail Yakupov
Pittsburgh: Eric Fehr and Tristan Jarry


04 Aug 2016 21:17:43
crap for crap works for me.

04 Aug 2016 22:14:35
I saw you commented that on my post, but I'm going to say no. I think the only way Oilers would take a forward is if they are younger, and then besides that I think the only way he gets traded is for a decent pick or a RHD. But Jarry wouldn't be a bad pick up, however if/ when Fluery gets traded they will have lost 2 goalies out of 4. So I doubt they do that.

04 Aug 2016 22:57:10
Don't need Jarry but Fehr is alright, I'd say no if I was PC.

04 Aug 2016 04:53:12
Oil: Yak + 3rd

Penguins: Hagelin

Not saying it could happen, but "if" penguins were desperate enough to shed some cap, do you think they would take it? There could be better offers but I'm just wondering if you think they would bite on this, so let's say this is the only offer on the table. So literally just wondering if you guys think if Penguins were desperate enough if they would take this.

04 Aug 2016 05:13:08
The difference between Carl Hagelin and Yakupov isn't a 3rd.

04 Aug 2016 05:21:20
Don't think they'd trade hagelin considering his chemistry with kessel

04 Aug 2016 05:54:02
Id put a second but Oilers don't have one and I didn't wanna put Reinhart like every other post. And true that line is really good and would be hard to break up.

But I said if they were desperate, as in if they need to get rid of him for cap space. But good points.

04 Aug 2016 10:22:32
Meh Penguins just won the cup and Hagelin is worth more then Yak. Easy no from Penguins imo.

04 Aug 2016 14:41:47
If they were desperate then they'd trade Kunitz not hagelin.

04 Aug 2016 17:52:09
What about Eric Fehr + Tristan Jarry for Yak?

26 Jul 2016 09:57:49


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.

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.

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.
