Correct Score Competition Entry

19 Oct 2016 18:13:37
Ott-Craig Anderson (10% retained) 3rd

LA-Tanner Pearson

Ott- Cody Ceci, Curtis Lazar, Tanner Pearson

Pit-Marc Andre Fleury, Trevor Daley, Oskar Sundqvist,3rd

I'm not to sure on the value of Ceci so it might be overpayment from the pens but I thought I would try it out.

Thoughts? What would make it move even?

19 Oct 2016 18:23:43
Easy no from OTT on the 2nd one.

19 Oct 2016 18:58:07
Easy No from Ottawa on both. Ottawa needs scoring but not nearly as bad as LA needs goaltending. And losing Ceci would decimate Ottawa's right hand defense depth, as they have literally no one of value after him (I don't see Wideman as a viable NHL defenceman)

19 Oct 2016 19:42:45

19 Oct 2016 19:50:15
LA isn't trading Pearson for Anderson lol.

19 Oct 2016 23:50:46
Lol you think Ottawa wouldn't take Pearson holy man.

20 Oct 2016 00:30:13
Anderson>>>>>Fleury. Enough said.

20 Oct 2016 13:09:43
I mean, I'm an Ottawa fan but you are horribly mistaken seabass2011.

Fleury is younger by like 4 years and consistently performs better, at least during the season.

20 Oct 2016 15:19:14
"at least during the season" 'Nuff said. DOn't need another playoff under performer. Fleury would be a liability.

14 Oct 2016 19:25:04
PIT: Justin Shultz, Chris Kunitz, 1st
WPG: Jacob Trouba


MTL: Noah Juulsen, Nathan Beaulieau, David Deharnhias
WPG: Jacob Trouba.

14 Oct 2016 20:11:16
The first trade is just terrible, Winnipeg doesn't need a Top 6 RD they need a top 4 LD, Chris Kunitz should soon be considered dead weight at some point in the near future and A first won't cut it. The Montreal trade is a little better, I say add a 1st with the top 4 LD and RD prospect and its close.

14 Oct 2016 20:20:55
Those are swful.

14 Oct 2016 20:21:04

15 Oct 2016 00:32:14
dont give him hope at being awful they was horrendez.

15 Oct 2016 01:15:52
Big NO from Habs,
Beaulieu > Troubeau.

15 Oct 2016 07:43:22
the habs trade is closer. but that isn't really saying much.

18 Oct 2016 20:53:27
Habs pass, maybe Emelin and Pateryn and 5th rounder for Trouba.

13 Oct 2016 21:15:39
pit- Marc Andre Fleury, Trevor Daley

Ana-Hampus Lindholm

I know the Ducks don't really need Fleury but they can send Jonathan Bernier to the AHL and have Fleury and Gibson as their one two punch in net and Daley can replace Lindholm on D.

Trading Fleury the pens can protect Murray and by trading Daley they clear up cap space to to sign Lindholm.

Pitt- Chirs Kunitz

Col-Blake Comeau

The pens will clear up cap space plus Comeau played pretty well with Malkin


13 Oct 2016 21:29:13
are you kidding me with the first trade?

13 Oct 2016 22:19:44
You forgot to mention Anaheim loses Fleury to the expansion draft and Daley to UFA and Pittsburghs left with a budding #1 D man at age 22.

14 Oct 2016 04:48:30
Wow that first trade was bad.

14 Oct 2016 06:48:08
that trade makes my trades look good, keep it up.

15 Oct 2016 01:22:20
that trade won't happen and Vegas can't take Fleury in the expansion draft 'cause he has a NMC and has to be 'protected' by Pens.

12 Oct 2016 20:22:14
This may just be my opinion but I don't think Cam Talbot should be the Oilers goalie going forward. There are several goalies better than him on the trade block because of the expansion draft.

Should they re-consider having Talbot going forward, here are a few possiblle trade options:

#1: EDM-TB

Oilers get: Ben Bishop

Lightning get: Cam Talbot, Griffin Reinhart, David Musil, Tyler Vesel

Why for TBL: If they lose Talbot in the expansion draft, they get some highly talented prospects to make up for it (not that Talbot for Bishop strait up would happen)


Oilers Get: Marc-Andre Fleury

Penguins get: Cam Talbot, Griffin Reinhart, Ziyat Paygin

Why for PIT: Same thing with Tampa. Yes Fleury is worth less than Bishop. When Jarry is ready to come up, they just trade Talbot for some prospects.

#3: EDM-DET:

Oilers Get: Jimmy Howard

Red Wings get: Cam Talbot, Griffin Reinhart

Why for DET: Same situation as Tampa. I think the Red Wings would get greety and ask for more but that would just be unfair. Do I think Howard is the right choice, NO, but does it work if they have to do it, I guess so.


Oilers get: Andrew Hammond

Senators get: Cam Talbot, Ryan-Nugent Hopkins

I don't think this happens because RNH is 100% overrated with lots of down years since coming to the NHL. Will a team be dumb enough to take him, yes.

Some other goalies that may be avalible: Mike Smith, Semyon Varlamov. I think the price will be too high though. I think the Yakupov trade ruined some of these chances because teams would be dumb to take an overrated player like him too. Then you get a goalie for this package: RNH, Yakupov, Talbot.

12 Oct 2016 20:42:03
First and second trades aren't very bad, third trade is just stupid for the Oilers, Howards even if not worse than Talbot. Fourth trade is god awful. yes, there are people who way overvalue him, but this is just terrible. Talbot altogether is more proven than Hammond, who had a lucky break in the season he went 22-1-2 or some nonsense like that. Nuge is a proven 50 point guy, and the way your saying it, you make him sound like a cap dump, which he isn't.

12 Oct 2016 20:48:12
No from TB and PIT and an easy no from EDM on the last two. Nuge and Talbot for Hammond, really?

12 Oct 2016 20:48:18
Lol they got worse as you went along, I would make a comment about the trades but not worth my time. Troll.

12 Oct 2016 20:51:23
Talbot and Nuge for Hammond? Uh oh.

12 Oct 2016 20:59:24
Are you serious? I'm no oilers fan, but RNH and talbot for Hammond?!?! He's a flash in the pan, 30 year old back up. You are delusional if you're not sitting at home laughing at the fact that people are even responding to this. Sens couldn't get talbot for Hammond and a pick less than a first. And you think a really good top 6 forward needed to be included?

12 Oct 2016 21:00:10
Yea, I'd rather keep Talbot instead of Jimmy Howard's 6 mill contract, yet can Talbot played better than him last season and you want them to add. The Andrew Hammond one is just pure trash, really. Hammond is a shaky backup, Talbot played better than him with more games, and even in the AHL last year Hammond posted a 4.05 GAA, you sir are Delusional, and you want them To add Nuge!? Lol none of these trades make sense. I like your comment about teams being dumb enough to take Nuge, either you don't know anything about hockey or you just hate the Oilers, which one is it?

12 Oct 2016 21:15:44
Doubt any of those teams want a 4.1mil goalie in a trade, a cheap young prospect maybe. Think they'd want skaters. I could be wrong, but with Talbot, doesn't save them much cap just to lose him in the expansion draft maybe. Ottawa trade doesn't even make sense. Talbot had a .917 save % last season so don't think he's oilers problem. Hammond was .914.fleury was .921 and bishop was .926 but played on much better teams.

12 Oct 2016 21:49:22
Lol that ottawa one is so bad for oilers that trades as useful as a poopy flavored lollipop.

13 Oct 2016 00:34:11
If it was that easy to get Bishop he would have been traded a long time ago lol.
I don't know why you don't think Talbot should be the Oilers goalie, it's your opinion but I'd like to disagree to an extent. Talbot is not the Oilers problem, and he did very well on a very weak team. You could say he is quite underrated as he's the Oilers goalie, but for sure if Bishop was an option I'm sure any team would try and get him for that price.
Also, Oilers have two very good young goalies in their system in Brossiot and Ellis. LB last year had flashes but ultimately struggled in his starts for the Oilers but every year he has progressed and he looks to have a very bright future in the organiation. And Ellis is fresh from College and he also looks like he could have a nice career.

13 Oct 2016 02:19:29
Brossoit had like a 9.40 save percentage in the pre season I think and he's been on the AHL all star team for the past couple seasons I think. At 23 he's on the 2nd tier of those young promising goalies I'd say. So yeah Oil are decently set in net. Always room for improvement but not really a weak spot.

13 Oct 2016 02:52:04
Andrew Hammond? he's not a No. 1, more of a flash in the pan mediocre backup.

13 Oct 2016 05:31:29
Or maybe we give it a couple months and see how Talbot performs? Little early to toss him aside, isn't it?

13 Oct 2016 06:43:24
Chirp idk if you think I or ebs meant that LB will play for the Oilers this year, but Talbot will for sure be the starter this year and the next. I think next year LB will be the fullltime backup until Talbot loses the job to him.

13 Oct 2016 06:46:57
first 2 are close enough. maybe tampa adds a pick or something. pittsburgh i think is closest, but with them threatening to repeat i don't think they'd give up fleury. detroit adds and the ottawa trade may be fair straight up talbot for hammond. maybe add a 1st from ottawa and a prospect if you insist on RNH being in the trade.

Hammond, Ceci, 2nd for RNH and talbot
anderson, 2nd for rnh and talbot.

13 Oct 2016 06:58:46
My reply was intended for the original post. Before game one of a new season with an adjusted team in front of him (D has been drastically reworked and I think it could make a big difference), someone already doubts Talbot? I'm not saying he's going to be a legit star, but I'm not saying he's going to be a sieve either. It's obviously WAAAY too early to tell. Talbot was good, not great, tonight, but he was definitely better than Elliott tonight who I'd say everyone here would grant is a legit #1G in this league and has a strong D core in front of him. So, IMO, this is all just a silly conversation. Even with the win, the Oilers need some adjustment time (PP was horrid) . That said, it's far too early for overhauls.

13 Oct 2016 14:47:55
Oh yeah for sure.

13 Oct 2016 17:50:33
You would Kaner 🙄.

02 Oct 2016 23:30:37
Coyotes have more than enough prospects maybe move some out for a steady goalie?

ARI: Mike Smith (25% Retained), Kyle Wood, Brenden Perlini, 2nd
PIT: Marc Andre Fleury

Considering they wanted bennett and a 1st from calgary for fleury. I think it would be fair in their eyes, but not in my eyes.

03 Oct 2016 17:10:43
Smith is to expensive for Pittsburgh even at 25% values there tho.

03 Oct 2016 21:06:03
Maybe at 50% retained) or not even smith at all

30 Sep 2016 17:51:22
Penguins- 2nd (2017)

Oilers- Yakupov

Penguins- Daley,2nd (2018) 3rd (2017)

Predators- Ellis.

30 Sep 2016 18:15:02
Article out of Edmonton is they are willing to move on from yak for little or no return. A second is too high.

30 Sep 2016 19:36:18
Unless Pulj and Versteeg both perform better than yak out of camp, they aren't going to be in a rush to ditch him

And no from Nash. You can't break up their top four with that.

30 Sep 2016 19:51:16
Like what article did you see that from lol.

30 Sep 2016 19:53:59
Ryan rishaug as reported in the Edmonton Journal.

30 Sep 2016 20:05:01
But, that's not as accurate as your opinion/ sources I'm sure.

30 Sep 2016 20:05:01
But, that's not as accurate as your opinion/ sources I'm sure.

30 Sep 2016 21:25:53
No way Preds do that.

30 Sep 2016 22:18:27
It's not. Your crazy to think they couldn't give Yak away.

01 Oct 2016 00:43:02
Yeah for sure man and no because that's a lie and you exaggerated your entire story about that so badly just so you sound like a big boy. Everyone knows you're a delusional as it gets when it comes to the Oilers. If you're going to try and say something then let it be honest.

01 Oct 2016 04:08:00
@McJ and Ebs
Honestly don't even bother replying to Borje when it comes to him and the oilers. He always has and always will just be trying to get a reaction from the Oilers fan base.

25 Sep 2016 07:32:35
Winnipeg Jets:
- Jacob Trouba (RHD)
Pittsburgh Penguins:
- Olli Maatta (LHD)
- 2018 second round pick

Winnipeg gets a young LHD who is also finnish so he and laine could get along really good. And they get a 2nd round pick. Pittsburgh gets a steady right hand shot defencemen. But will need to make room so in that case this is just a value wise proposal.

25 Sep 2016 10:04:21
You think the Pens are going to give a young, really good value contract and a second in exchange for Trouba, Pens aren't a budget team, Trouba will be looking for at least 6 mill on his new contract, Maatta has 4 mill for the next 6 years.

25 Sep 2016 10:22:23
Pens are a budget team** mb.

25 Sep 2016 12:31:13
Yah no from Pits.

23 Sep 2016 23:03:57
If Malkin was every traded it would be to the Western Conference. I seen an article a couple days ago, not saying it would ever happen but I wanna see how good this is VALUE WISE.

- Sam Bennett
- Dougie Hamilton
- Oliver Kylington
- (2017) 1st round pick
- Evgeni Malkin

Imagine not using Monahan as the 2nd Center and putting Monahan, Gaudreau and Malkin together.

23 Sep 2016 23:12:06
Way to much for Calgary to give up. They lose their future for one player. With the loss of Hamilton and Bennet they are not playoff contenders even with Malkin.

23 Sep 2016 23:13:06
Huge no from Calgary.

23 Sep 2016 23:24:46
Way to much.

23 Sep 2016 23:39:19
Lol yeah imagine it.

23 Sep 2016 23:49:35
They wanted a 1st round a Bennett for fleury that's why I thought adding more would be in their range

24 Sep 2016 00:20:47
JohnnyMony there is a reason that Fleury is not in Calgary and the price you just described is why. Way to much for Calgary to give up for Fleury.

24 Sep 2016 01:00:40
Would rather have the CGY package

23 Sep 2016 17:46:30
pittsburgh: malkin, Kunitz
Boston: Krejci, Marchand.


23 Sep 2016 18:35:53
they have Bergeron. nobody really wants kunitz.

23 Sep 2016 18:41:25
Don't see why Boston does this. They need a rebuild so they will want picks and prospects not Kunitz. Also they have Bergeron and don't need Malkin.

23 Sep 2016 19:49:43
That's so weird picturing Malkin on Boston wow, also no from Boston.

23 Sep 2016 21:21:39
Am I the only one that thinks this is a no from pits? Malkin is a top 10 player in the NHL when he's not injured.

23 Sep 2016 22:58:34

No argument that he is a good player.

The argument is his salary, also his and Kunitz's.

23 Sep 2016 23:02:51
Who cares if Boston has Bergeron, They could still use and want Malkin. Pitts has Crosby and still
Has Malkin. Teams love two unreal centers.
But anyways, Ya Boston doesn't want or need Kunitz.

There is however question that Marchand may want to go play woth Crosby and sign with Pitts after this season. Being great buddy's with Crosby and Pitts will lose the money of Fluery and Kunitz so they would be able to afford him. Something to keep and eye on.

13 Sep 2016 04:59:01
Ari-Louis Domingue, Connor Murphy, Jarred Tinordi.

Pit- Marc Andre Fleury, Chris Kunitz, Trevor Daley

Break down
Fleury, Daley for Domingue, Murphy
Kuntiz,5th for Tinordi

Arizona has a bright future and with this trade they get a true #1 goaltender, they also get a bit stronger on D with adding Daley they take on the salary of Kunitz but he is still a decent player who can help the young guys.

Pittsburgh clears cap space and also get a good backup for Murray they get Murphy who can play top 4 minutes and he is signed to a decent contract. Tinordi has had some problems but I think he can turn into a decent player.

13 Sep 2016 07:35:46
No way Arizona does this.

13 Sep 2016 16:12:04
Arizona declines because they really like Murphy. Also Pittsburgh's going into next season with pretty much the exact same Roster (minus Ben Lovejoy, but who gives a crap about him) so there's no need to make big changes now unless it's dire.

13 Sep 2016 23:47:28
11 million tied up in fleury and smith in net for coyotes for 3 more years. Ouch.

13 Sep 2016 04:08:47
Ari-Louis Domingue, Connor Murphy, Jarred Tinordi.

Pit- Marc Andre Fleury, Chris Kunitz, Trevor Daley

Break down
Fleury, Daley for Domingue, Murphy
Kuntiz,5th for Tinordi

Arizona has a bright future and with this trade they get a true #1 goaltender, they also get a bit stronger on D with adding Daley they take on the salary of Kunitz but he is still a decent player who can help the young guys.

Pittsburgh clears cap space and also get a good backup for Murray they get Murphy who can play top 4 minutes and he is signed to a decent contract. Tinordi has had some problems but I think he can turn into a decent player.

08 Sep 2016 03:46:46
Evgeni Malkin + 3rd 2018 + Ryan Segalla for Tomas Hertl + Marc Edouard Vlasic

1st 2017 + Brian Dumoulin for James van Riemsdyk

Patric Hornqvist + Jake Guentzel + 5th 2018 for Cam Atkinson + 2nd 2018

Marc-Andre Fleury + Chris Kunitz + J. Schultz + 4th 2017 for Zack Smith + Cody Ceci + Craig Anderson (15% Retained) + 1st 2017

J. van Riemsdyk - S. Crosby - C. Atkinson
C. Hagelin - N. Bonino - P. Kessel
Z. Smith - T. Hertl - B. Rust
C. Sheary - O. Sundqvist - E. Fehr

M. Vlasic - K. Letang
O. Maatta - C. Ceci
I. Cole - T. Daley

M. Murray
C. Anderson

Penguins strengthen up their defense and become an even bigger offensive power house. They do lose some good prospects and some picks but they are in a win now mindset. The addition of JVR, Atkinson, Hertl and Smith definitely makes up for the loss of Malkin. Thoughts?

08 Sep 2016 07:27:39
No way on this planet would San Jose take that offer.

Not bad offer for JVR, if Toronto can get a first (even a late one) I think they take it. Also get a D back.

Not good at all for Pitt. Hornqvist is not leaving Crosby.

Literally doesn't make any sense what so ever for Ottawa to do that.

So those are my thoughts.

08 Sep 2016 12:24:13
Yea I'm going to say a big no from Ottawa. Shultz is a downgrade from Ceci, Kunitz is a downgrade from Smith considering age and contract. Fleury would be the only upgrade but it isn't worth it still.

08 Sep 2016 14:41:11
Anderson > MAF
Smith > Kunitz
Ceci > Schultz
1st > 4th

MAF has very low value because of his NMC and teams know that pittsburgh is desperate to move him before the Expansion draft.

Kunitz has been a third liner his whole career. He's only had good point production because he was Crosby's linemate. Now he is getting pretty old and his play is on the decline.

Schultz bounced back a bit after being traded to pittsburgh. But still is worth a lot less than Ceci.

08 Sep 2016 14:44:33
A late first for JVR are you kidding? And The Ceci trade is beyond brutal.

05 Sep 2016 04:48:53
To Pittsburgh: Cory Schneider

To New Jersey: Geno.

05 Sep 2016 08:45:25
yup, PIT definitely needs another goalie. great thinking.

05 Sep 2016 08:45:36
Why the f would Pitt do that. Like that's retarded man are you out of your mind. Wow.

05 Sep 2016 11:55:57
Why would NJ do this there team is awful without schneider.

05 Sep 2016 14:45:42
Think before you post my man, Schneider + Murray + Fleury in. net. think. Please.

05 Sep 2016 19:08:03
Pens don't need a goslie. Not sure njd have what it would take to get geno. But u have a feeling pits wI'll be shopping in in the next few years.

06 Sep 2016 03:08:41
More like:

Henrique, Zacha and two 1st rounders for Malkin (that's what Ray Shero would probably do)

05 Sep 2016 04:12:11
New Jersey Devils:

- Brian Domoulin

- Chris Kunitz

Pittsburgh Penguins:

- Keith Kinkaid

- 2018 4th round pick


Murray basically won the Penguins the Stanley Cup.

If he doesn't work out, they can trade him or send him down to the minors and have Kinkaid.

If Murray does work out and shows strong signs in the Pre-Season and/ or training camp they can trade Fleury and have Kinkaid as a backup. Tristan Jarry is not ready to handle that role.

They also get rid of salary with Chris Kunitz being gone. And that wouldn't be a big loss since he started declining and Carl Haglin started to play better.

New Jersey Devils get a good defenceman in Brian Doumoulin. He played good in the playoffs and i think this is the year he makes the jump. Sort of like Brandon Davidson did last year. Not to mention that he played basically a full season in the NHL.

Chris Kunitz can still be a useful forward to New Jersey. Playing with Taylor Hall, and they can always trade him for a late pick to a team looking for depth when going to the playoffs.

They also lose Kinkaid. Scott Wedgewood is NHL-Ready. Sending Kinkaid to the AHL would just hurt his development and might as well seal his career as an AHL goalie.

05 Sep 2016 08:46:29
Honestly man like no, not worth it for Pitt.

05 Sep 2016 10:23:24
Why would Penguins do that and why would they want and or need Kinkaid? I don't think your reasoning is reasonable.

05 Sep 2016 14:47:33
Dumoluin looks like one of the better pieces from the Jordan Staal trade and he really blossomed playing alongside Kris Letang in the playoffs. From what I saw he's like the wingman defensive dman for Letang, and I don't think the Penguins trade him for ANOTHER goalie just to dump Kunitz' contract.

05 Sep 2016 14:56:07
As a Devils fan, I say Hell Yea!

06 Sep 2016 04:50:59
As much as Pitts has a few good young pieces, their core isn't young. Their best bet is to collect as many cups as possible in Crosby, malkin, letang ans kessels prime which is the next 2-3 years. Trading Kunitz and Dumolin for a late pick and a backup doesn't help that.

31 Aug 2016 04:02:25
CGY: Lance Bouma, 3rd
PIT: Chris Kunitz

CGY: Matt Stajan, 4th
TOR: Brooks Laich

CGY: Dennis Wideman, Tyler Wotherspoon
TOR: Milan Michalek, Martin Marincin
(Fills Toronto's need for defence)

Gaudreau - Monahan - Frolik
Shinkaruk - Bennett - Brouwer
Michalek - Backlund - Chiasson
Kunitz - Laich - Vey

Giordano - Brodie
Marincin - Hamilton
Jokipakka - Engelland.

31 Aug 2016 12:22:04
Calgary wants to shed cap, not acquire more with older players.

30 Aug 2016 21:54:52
PIT: Chris Kunitz
CGY: Lance Bouma, 4th

Gaudreau - Monahan - Frolik
Shinkaruk - Bennett - Brouwer
Kunitz - Backlund - Chiasson
Ferland - Stajan - Vey.

31 Aug 2016 01:26:03
If I was then Pens I'd rather just hang onto Kunitz.

31 Aug 2016 02:19:52
Dominic Moore singed to Boston 1 year $0.900.

30 Aug 2016 19:41:57
To Pittsburgh:
Kevin Shattenkirk
2nd/ 3rd Round Pick 2017

To St. Louis:
Chris Kunitz
Justin Shultz

Penguins gain stability on their blue line while getting rid of cap. They also get a pick that they can trade away later for depth if needed. St. Louis gets a replacement for Shattenkirk with less cap hit and Kunitz brings a veteran presence which can help fill the void that Backes and Brouwer left. He can also add depth on the wing.

30 Aug 2016 20:48:42


30 Aug 2016 20:50:47
Wow colts not going to like this.

30 Aug 2016 21:29:07
Awful for St Louis. Take out Shattenkirk and its closer.

30 Aug 2016 21:42:43
Did u do this just to make Colt mad? because if u did then kudos.

30 Aug 2016 22:02:42
Not even close to the realm of possibility. Armstrong reportedly turned down a good prospect and a 1st from the Bruins at the draft. If the return is aging, overpaid Kunitz and Schultz who any team in the league could have had for next to nothing, they will keep him, make another run and let him walk. Because those pieces will not help the blues this year more than he will, and neither of them have a future with the blues as contracts expire.

Then blues add a pick?!

31 Aug 2016 04:08:49
Justin Schultz doesn't make blues top d men. I don't need to say much more everyone else did.

31 Aug 2016 09:02:14
Blues add.

30 Aug 2016 04:17:44
PIT: Evgeni Malkin, Ian Cole, Chris Kunitz
TOR: Nazem Kadri, Mitch Marner, Kasperi Kapanen, Jake Gardiner, Colin Greening, 3rd

Sheary - Crosby - Hornqvist
Hagelin - Bonino - Kessel
Greening - Kadri - Marner

Why would Toronto do that. I know they are clearly better but they are in a rebuild, not worth trading away young assets for old players.

30 Aug 2016 06:23:24
But if we disregard that reason, instead of sending away 6 assets for 3, maybe add in JVR or just better quality and that would be a nice deal.

30 Aug 2016 06:39:47
No from both for obvious reasons but Toronto needs to add more value if it was real.

so dumb.

To Arizona:
Chris Kunitz

To Pittsburgh
Craig Cunningham
5th Round Pick

Pittsburgh gets cap space, Arizona gets a better player for more money. Thoughts?

28 Aug 2016 21:58:38
This won't happen the only time they take on cap is to gain good prospects in return phX is not in business of taking on cap to help teams with out a great return.

29 Aug 2016 16:00:14
Once again if you disagree then state why.

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.

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.
