Boyle=Old and useless
12 Oct 2015 00:00:02
My 2016 season predictions (should've posted before th season started but I'mma go anyway)
New York Rangers
New York Islanders
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
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
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!
21 Sep 2015 20:32:54
Pittsburgh trades Scuderi, Pouliot, 3rd to Vancouver for Hamhuis (retain 1 mil)
21 Sep 2015 20:36:54
Penguins would not trade Pouliot for a pending UFA in Hamhuis. Not even straight up. Canucks add
22 Sep 2015 00:27:32
May aswell add Geno aswell
15 Sep 2015 16:07:42
1st Round Pick 2016 (Pittsburgh's)
15 Sep 2015 16:42:36
Upgrade Bozak, upgrade Percy, upgrade the 1st, then Tampa listens
15 Sep 2015 16:46:44
Not enough try
1st Round Pick 2016 (Pittsburgh's)
15 Sep 2015 17:17:14
No reason for the Leafs to offer anything for Stamkos at this point. Its clear to everyone that Stamkos is not resigning in TO just wait until July 2016 offer him 7 y x 11 M in the meantime just be patient loose badly get another great draft pick let Nylander and others develop and sign Stamkos later. No need to give up anything at this point
15 Sep 2015 20:54:46
Leafs rebuilder, why is it clear to everyone. it obviously isnt, why woud he resign? the team future, no state tax, great coach I can go on mate
15 Sep 2015 22:54:18
Stamkos is 25yrs old
Yes he would be part of the rebuild.
Stamkos will be a Leaf this Season or next its up to Yzerman to either get something or nothing
16 Sep 2015 02:31:58
if Yzerman was as smart as everyone says he is he would package Stamkos with a prospect and pick and trade for ME. maybe Stamkos,Drouin and 1st
16 Sep 2015 08:55:04
Sweet Leaf dreams.
15 Sep 2015 04:14:40
to New Jersey
Pittsburgh is setting up for a cup run with the Kessel trade. Only problem is a goalie who is a proven flopper. Jets are a good enough team to make the playoffs with Pavelec, so they would still see Fleury as an upgrade. Schneider is just wasting away his prime in New Jersey, and he would be the final piece in the puzzle for the Penguins. The Devils would get a goalie average enough to carry them through their rebuild, plus a high-level prospect to play with Zacha
15 Sep 2015 11:45:16
Pens need better dmen as they are depleted, not another goalie and an goalie with a ridiculous contract who should very well be a backup
16 Sep 2015 02:12:34
Schneider is an elite goaltender in this league!! Plus he's the only good thing the Devils have going for them!
16 Sep 2015 02:30:36
Sidney Crosby doesn't approve these trades.
16 Sep 2015 08:32:20
KingsLover that's the thing, they're wasting his prime and don't need him, for they still have a few years left in the rebuild
Honestly he's what's holding them back from top notch prospects
11 Sep 2015 20:20:09
Tampa Bay Trades
2nd Round Pick 2016
1st Round Pick 2016 (Pittsburgh's)
Stamkos hasn't signed because he will be signing as a UFA in Toronto after this Season anyways.
12 Sep 2015 00:13:32
Haha Pinball strikes again. This is too good. Love the last bit about how he's signing in Toronto.
12 Sep 2015 00:17:30
12 Sep 2015 00:21:49
really hope your kidding
12 Sep 2015 00:29:13
AUGH! I thought you were gone! I was so happy!!
Stamkos still has a year left on previous deal and the season hasn't even started. All you mindless leafs zombies that just believe anything local media says need to wake up and enter reality. Give this crap a break, dude. It's tiresome and pathetic.
12 Sep 2015 01:27:35
Probably have to add Nylander Marner Rielly and a 1sts and the Leafs can suck for another 15 years. Not worth trading everything the leafs have for stamkos. If he hits the market he will probably come to toronto.
12 Sep 2015 02:06:37
I actually do think Stammer might be out of Tampa, Leafs would be nice. imo too many players in TB that need raises. Hedman, Killorn, Bishop, Johnson, Stammer. Drouin & Paquette coming off EL, just seems that TB will need to move players, my personal guess will be Bishop & Carle, but if all fails the Leafs just may get him. All NHL teams will pass on a guy who may be set on going home.
Off season trade
D.Phaneuf, 1st Round (TOR) & S.Percy for Stammer rights
12 Sep 2015 02:36:55
Oh. My. God.
12 Sep 2015 06:16:57
Cosain, are you ok dude? I think you may have hit your head on something
12 Sep 2015 08:24:21
only way leafs are getting stammer is if he hits free agency in 2016
12 Sep 2015 08:41:05
Yeah I agree with Bud. Phaneuf in any deal involving Stamkos is embarrassing
12 Sep 2015 11:08:56
No Johnny he's not kidding. This is what he thinks is fair
12 Sep 2015 12:05:35
All that's actually quite a bit for UFA rights. If Toronto thinks he is set on going back home then they should just wait and sign him when he hits free agency. But to hit free agency contract talks have to fall through, and that probably ain't going to happen
12 Sep 2015 16:42:29
Pinballs back, eh?
@Drais, whadya think? XD
12 Sep 2015 18:26:25
"Might as well trade best play because good all pinball said so"
Welcome back pinball! lol
12 Sep 2015 19:44:05
What a crap from the leaf
The only way they get stammer is by free agency
13 Sep 2015 00:40:53
I don't know what's more stupid, the proposal or what MF just said.
13 Sep 2015 01:46:51
The ladies knitting circle is the only embarrassing thing here, if all of you ladies are so smart please post what is going to happen with Stamkos' I can see a business trade including a hearty contract with a great pick & decent prospect going over to help the Bolts save face and in return help the Leafs with cap dollars. This would be a total situational deal if Stamkos wants TO. But if any of you agreeing girls can just flirt a bit with Yzerman, Stammer or his agent and get the real scoop that would help out a ton.
13 Sep 2015 05:17:32
Leafs 2016 offseason will consist of signing both Stamkos and Kopitar and fast track this rebuild. I am kidding obviously because odds are both teams will make room to sign them.
09 Sep 2015 11:26:15
PROPOSED TRADE (Idea): 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,
09 Sep 2015 12:09:17
umm I think that might be an overpayment by T.O.
first of all JVR is a pretty much proven first line winger, and your adding a pretty decent prospect in leipsic and 2 high picks. for a single prospect?
id only make a trade like that for a franchise projected prospect, i'm not entirely convinved by drouin (yes he is pretty fricken awesome) but I don't see him being worth that much
probably a no from both teams tbh. also hasn't ohlund retired? I
09 Sep 2015 13:24:02
Ohlund hasn't played since 2011 it's just that his contract is still going for Tampa. It's similar to Marc Savard and Chris Pronger.
09 Sep 2015 14:09:59
TOR shouldn't do that because they should keep their picks and TB won't do it because they need a playmaker for Stamkos and not another sniper in JVR.
10 Sep 2015 06:54:09
Cap space will make stamkos impossible to sign
13 Sep 2015 16:21:14
so leafs trade all that for Drouin. who still has yet to prove he'll succeed in the league??
08 Sep 2015 22:42:33
Cap dump trade ideas. Change of scenario
Pittsburgh trades Dupuis, Scuderi to Boston for Seidenberg, Paille.
Arizona trades Doan and Hanzal for Lecaveleir, Read and a 3rd.
Detroit trades Franzen to Dallas for Hemsky
Chicago trades Bickel, Anisimov, Dano, Polka and a 1st for Eric Staal, Gerbe and a 3rd
Just ideas, place ideas and changes if necessary
09 Sep 2015 04:44:40
Paille isn't even in Boston anymore he's a FA
08 Sep 2015 18:16:24
Toronto trades Robidas (retain 1mil), Gauthier,Valiev, Percy and PITs 1st and 3rd rd pick to St. Louis for Stattenkirk
St. Louis flips Robidas, Berglund, and a 1st to Vancouver for Hamhuis
Toronto trades Polak to Arizona for a pick
St. Louis trades Gunnarsson, Rattie for Alzner
St. Louis D
08 Sep 2015 19:37:45
Pretty bad as usual.
How does that help St. Louis at all? And why would leafs give up younger players and picks for a guy in his prime when they're clearly rebuilding.
Washington also declines
08 Sep 2015 19:45:04
Makes complete sense; since Toronto is contending for the cup this year it doesn't matter that we are trading away 3 high ceiling prospects, a 1st and a 3rd.
Really man, stop and think. Please. Neither team does this.
08 Sep 2015 21:49:44
Since when are Gauthier, Valiev, and Percy "high ceiling prospects"?
08 Sep 2015 22:16:57
How about actually sending sth of value to STL for Shattenkirk?
09 Sep 2015 00:15:15
Toronto is not contending for the cup. They might get the 1st overall pick next year
09 Sep 2015 02:00:22
Ok, maybe "high" ceilings wasn't exactly the correct term for these prospects. But I do believe Percy will be a reliable 4/5 defenseman on this team in a year or so. Valiev has progressed well enough not to be considered a dud. Gauthier is what he is. No sense fighting over that.
WHOOOOOSH! Right over your head.
09 Sep 2015 08:27:41
^Last time I checked TOR traded Pittsburgh's first in this trade not their own
09 Sep 2015 13:58:02
since shat is the past tense for sh*t everyone thinks that they can offer sh*tty players,prospects,picks for shatty LOL
Blues are not trading shatty. If you want a good dman go after seabrook cause chicago can not afford him
08 Sep 2015 06:44:47
Trades that make sense.
EDM: Seth Jones
NAS: Leon Draisaitl, David Musil, 2nd 2016, 3rd 2017
BUF: Dennis Seidenberg
BOS: Marcus Foligno, 4th 2016
CGY: Jeff Skinner
CAR: Morgan Klimchuk, Tyler Wotherspoon, 3rd 2017
PIT: Kevin Shattenkirk
STL: Rob Scuderi(Cap), Derrick Pouliot, Beau Bennett, 1st 2017, 2nd 2016
08 Sep 2015 08:43:22
too much for Shattenkirk, but otherwise solid set
08 Sep 2015 18:00:30
Blues say no thanks. The offer has value indeed. But blues are contending now can't afford to lose shatty
07 Sep 2015 08:16:55
TO New York
07 Sep 2015 14:28:33
07 Sep 2015 15:28:53
Pitts laughs as do I
07 Sep 2015 22:09:14
Pittsburgh wouldn't trade Malkin unless they get a clear number 2 centre back in the trade because Nick Bonino would have to fill that role. Not that he's a bad player it's just he's a great 3rd line centre and a poor man's 2nd line centre.
08 Sep 2015 05:35:52
Which universe is this based in? because that makes a huge difference.

St. Louis Trade:
The Blues are trying to remain a cup contender team and IMO they become better with this trade. They receive a top pairing defensive defensemen that will complement either Pietrangelo or Shattenkirk, whomever he is paired with. Higgins is slightly older than Berglund, however he is the better hockey player than Berglund. That being said Berglund and Rattie are younger players and can help Vancouver in their rebuild/retool (whatever you want to call it). Gunnarsson helps short term on the blue line due to the lack of quality depth on the Canucks blue line.
Montreal improves their offence and adds a skilled one-shot scorer who can still put up 30 goals a season. With the Vancouver retaining half of his salary, Montreal can add a quality player as such without subtracting a player out of their line up. With teams in the east improving their rosters in the offseason, the Canadiens stay competitive along with teams such as Pittsburgh, Washington, New York, Brooklyn :S and Tampa as the quality top tier teams in the east. Vancouver adds a big body quality prospect who won the memorial cup along with Vancouver prospect Cole Cassels.
Vancouver adds more quality prospects In order to build and transition the Vancouver Canucks team for the years succeeding the Sedins era.
06 Sep 2015 06:13:38
I wouldn't want to trade McCarron
06 Sep 2015 08:34:31
St Louis gets hosed in the first trade
06 Sep 2015 17:57:30
I'd do the Vrbata for McCarron trade as a Canucks fan. For the blues trade, it's not bad I wouldn't say I'd be happy to get Gunnarson back unless we could move him for draft picks/prospects. Not sure what I think of Berglund either, I think he's out the first few months of the season. Would love to see Rattie on the nucks.
06 Sep 2015 18:47:42
Hoorible trade blues say no thanks
06 Sep 2015 20:56:06
How is it a horrible trade for the blues? They get a top pair dman and an upgrade over Berglund. Without selling the farm. They keep all they're higher end prospects and they don't lose a draft pick.
07 Sep 2015 15:01:59
Blues are set on dmen blues have high end prospects to fill wholes . Blues do not need to trade for worse players
08 Sep 2015 03:40:36
Only reason I see the Blues not doing it is it leaves a whole at third line center. However adding Hamhuis instantly makes the Blues a better team and gives them a very solid group of dmen.
08 Sep 2015 18:02:28
What makes you think that danny hamuis makes the team better.
08 Sep 2015 23:12:22
Dan Hamhuis is a high end defensive player that is capable to shut players down. He is a very good skater who doesn't hesitate to lay the body on his opponents. While being a smart defensive oriented player, he isn't inept in his offensive abilities he makes excellent outlet passes to transition from his own zone to his opponents zone and also is capable of posting 20-25pts in a season.
No world shattering by any means but that's what you want from a defensive defenseman. He has been a top pairing defenseman for most of his career. Playing with a player like Pietrangelo or Shattenkirk he'll be able to allow either player to be more offensively responsible in order to allow the St. Louis offence a more dangerous threat in the offensive zone.
09 Sep 2015 00:30:48
How do you not is a better question. He is leaps and bounds better than Gunnerson. The Blues top 4 would be one of the best in the league. Hamhuis plays a steady two game that really would compliment either AP or KS. I don't follow the Blues so I don't know how they are prospect wise on D, but I can almost guarantee a little more development wouldn't hurt them.
Not to mention 3/4 of your top 4 dmen played together at the Olympics in 2014 where they won. IDK, but most teams would enjoy having such an experienced top 4.
09 Sep 2015 14:01:06
He is not a quality puck moving defenseman. The blues style requires quick transition out of thier zone. Gunnerson performed that role very well towards the end of the year for cheap. real cheap. So now that he is healthy i'm looking forward to what he brings. The blues are set. We don't want or need your players and your not getting our good draft picks or young talent. Sorry grow your own bra
05 Sep 2015 20:25:06
This is never going to happen cause mtl ain't tradin price, but is this fair value?:
Penguins:Derrick pouliot, Matt Murray, Marc Andre fleury, 2017 1st, 2016 2nd
Habs: price+2 busts
Fair value? Like I said it's not going to happen just wondering what people think price is worth?
05 Sep 2015 21:15:44
Montreal would not move price. But I'd imagine Penguins would have to Start with Malkin and add from there.
05 Sep 2015 21:17:29
Price & Galchenyuk & Tinordi for Malkin & Fleury & Pouliot
05 Sep 2015 21:41:47
Not enough for price
05 Sep 2015 22:35:04
MTL would prolly want Malkin+
05 Sep 2015 23:21:14
For me no. I might be biased. well ya I am. but for me. Price is Priceless. I wouldn't even trade him straight up for Crosby.
06 Sep 2015 01:06:06
It's hard to say what Price is worth considering he will NOT ever be traded. I'll take a stab at it though
1st Round Pick, Very good replacement goalie, top prospect
And depending on the team and players involved more would have to be added
06 Sep 2015 01:11:38
Why would they trade 2 goalies?
06 Sep 2015 06:13:40
Hell no not This crap for price to be honest pens don't have enought for price cause we won't trade price straigh for Crosby or malkin because if price trade they need one of them in it
Plus pens got no prospect
07 Sep 2015 00:17:04
MF you literally have no idea what you are talking about. Harry, Murray, Pouliot, Dumoulin, Sprong just to name a few of the Pens prospects. I have to agree with JF12, but adding as well a top 6 forward of some sort going to Montreal as well. In reality though Price will not get moved.
02 Sep 2015 16:37:28
Trade between Pittsburgh And Chicago
CHI: Evgeni Malkin
PITT: Patrick Kane
02 Sep 2015 17:11:03
02 Sep 2015 18:38:23
02 Sep 2015 19:30:34
If you proposed that 2 months ago then maybe. but now chi would have to add
03 Sep 2015 02:09:51
Pens would have a whole on the 2nd line.
03 Sep 2015 18:06:13
Plus it makes zero sense for Pittsburgh because they'd have three top-six RW in Kessel, Kane, and Hornqvist. And no second line center
01 Sep 2015 21:22:03
- David Perron
- Adrian Kempe
- 2016 2nd
- 17 5th
The Penguins lost one of their top prospects in the Phil Kessel trade. Kempe is a reliable two-way forward that has very similar playing style to Kapanen.
The Kings lost Justin Williams in the off-season. David Perron can fill his spot.
02 Sep 2015 07:12:13
Uhhhh. The it Lucic to fill his spot.
Lucic Kopitar Gaborik
Pearson Carter Tofoli
02 Sep 2015 09:59:57
They got* Lucic to fill his spot.
02 Sep 2015 13:20:31
One of LA top prospect and a 2nd is to much for Perron.
31 Aug 2015 18:49:37
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:
If we trade to caps:
If we trade to Blues:
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
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.

@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

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.

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.

pacioretty is no where near taresenkos level???!!! r u crazy. pacioretty IS montreals offense. he has no help up front what so ever. taresenko has people around him like backes stasny shwartz and more, pacioretty doesnt. also lethera is not worth a first.
02 Sep 2015 04:44:09
If you were actually a blues fan you would know that Tarasenko has out grown Lehtera and is now going to play with Backes or Steen or Stastny whoever their 1st line C is. Lehtera is just another Patrick Berglund.
02 Sep 2015 13:55:02
Because I am a blues fan I know how special those two are together.
Do you actually watch the games. Do you actually read blues articles. Cause you are dead wrong. They tried putting tarasenko with statsny last year didn't work. They tried every line combination under the sun and the best line which will be the #1 line is swartz, lethera, tarasenko. But since you obviously don't follow the blues I will lay it out for you what Hitchcock has already planned.
swartz Lehtera tarasenko
steen statsny Jaskin
Brouwer Backes Fabbri/Rattie
Ott Brodizack Reeves

Obviously you never played the sport your self. Chemistry is everything in hockey/ YOu could put the best three players on a line together and amout to nothing. But you put the right 2 or 3 on the same line that read each other know where they other one will be at all times and they create magic. Do you know how many times the best team on paper has been beaten by a lesser team. with all the number ones overall you think edm would actually be able to make the playoffs. BUt they can't cause all they have is a team filled with potential and no one with the heart to actually play together as a team. When they traded perron they traded their best player. He had heart the rest of the team is a bunch of individuals.

I did not compare Semin to Tarasenko. I said that they are both Russians and that Lehtera wouldn't need to change his system. Besides Semin at his best is better than Tarasenko. I just that they have good Center depth because Plekanec is on the third Line. Understand? They might have the best no.3 Center in the league if Plekanec is there
03 Sep 2015 00:25:52
You obviously haven't been following the oilers as you would know that the oilers had NO SECOND LINE (untill yak went on a hot streak) OR THIRD. AND NO DEFENSE. It wasnt about hall nuge or the core players in edm(except for shultz the kids got no excuse) It was depth. The fact that our development of later round draft picks has been terrible and have had horrible uppermangement deciasions like hiring eakins. We had no second line center for a few months in to the season proves it. So please stop bringing edm as an example when you know nothing about how many terrible decisions have been made by upper manegment.
03 Sep 2015 05:47:18
If you think that semim I better than tarasenko then there is nothing left to talk
03 Sep 2015 17:15:54
subban76 you have just lost all credibility
04 Sep 2015 05:25:56
Habs rather have a 2nd rounder than Higgins
31 Aug 2015 01:34:41
New York Rangers trades Keith Yandle
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.

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.
