No thanks blues rather have 2 2nds or 2nd and prospect. Poolparty is a cap dump at this point.


2.) 06 Feb 2023 16:56:15
"Poolparty"? Wow.


3.) 06 Feb 2023 19:36:39
Poolparty is probably one of the most well know nicknames around the nhl it’s clear you don’t follow the oilers.


4.) 06 Feb 2023 23:31:56
VB: this is getting embarrassing man. His nickname is “Bison King”. (Don’t take my word for it, Google it. )

I’m not sure why you’re so fascinated by me, but with every angry reply you throw my way you just embarrass yourself and come off unhinged.

Relax…go for a walk…whatever it takes. I’m here to talk hockey, not argue with you.

Puljujarvi is overpaid buts he’s an RFA at the end of the season so I see it as less of a cap dump and more of a 20 game trial. St. Louis is rumoured to be interested in him. Barbashev is on pace for less than 40 points so I don’t see him getting two 2nds.

Why would New jersey trade Bratt? 2nd trade doesn't make much sense for new jersey


2.) 06 Feb 2023 19:36:04
He’s an RFA and there’s been rumours for a while he won’t be resigned.


3.) 06 Feb 2023 19:47:20
BumbleBee Bratt has been a point per game for two seasons now and he’s only 24, could make a good duo with Petterson. IMO Van doesn’t need 2nd round picks they need a guy to play on the top line with Petterson. Trade Garland for cap space/ D man. They have a lot of good pieces to build with and Bratt would make them that much better.


4.) 07 Feb 2023 03:50:56
He's a great player, and I think Van would be interested. I just doubt that a deal would ever work out.

-I don't understand why a young team would take a step back and seek out draft picks?

- I would argue that Bratt is a better players than Boeser and on a cheaper contract.

- I'm not sure schenn makes up the diffrence in loosing a significant piece in Bratt.


Like I said, Vancouver would love to have Bratt, but not at the cost of draft picks, or that very least this year's 2nd round pick.


5.) 07 Feb 2023 16:22:10
Boeser will be cheaper for them next year after Bratt gets a raise, Schenn will be a good addition for a playoff run and the 2nds will be trade amo to improve the lineup. And again rumour has it Bratt won’t be a Devil next year. For VAN they upgrade on a guy that could use a fresh start. It costs them a couple picks but I’m surprised you don’t think it’s worth it. This might be premature but I imagine it helps with resigning Petterson too.


6.) 07 Feb 2023 20:15:40
Well, I would say 2 draft picks would be based on resigning with Vancouver.

Bard Marchand said it perfectly. (as much as I dislike the guy)

The reason boston has been so successful for so long, is because they don't ask for greedy contracts

(I'm paraphrasing)

You look at teams with the Matthew's and McDavid's of the league, they take such a huge chunk of cap space that it's tough to build a team around them.


MacKinnon did it right. He took a discount on AAV, won the cup, AND THEN got his big pay day!


So with Bratt, he will resign probably 8-9 million a year, can you build a team around him with that much cap space being gobbled up?

EDM - Kulak, Foegele, Ryan, 2023 1st, 2024 2nd

NAS - Ekholm (retain 1.25M), Trenin.

Ebsolutely

1.) 14 Jan 2023 06:23:57
So, the Predators, who are just slightly below the Oilers, for the last playoff spot, are going to send a solid defensive defenseman and a solid 3rd line player, for cap dumps and some picks.
Ya, I think if I am Nashville, I just continue on and end up ahead of the Oilers anyways.


2.) 14 Jan 2023 08:32:13
Kulak is a downgrade for sure but he’s also 4 years younger and 3.5M cheaper (2.25M after retaintion) than Ekholm. Trenin and Foegele seem fairly comparable except Trenin is 800K cheaper. Ryan is in for cap reasons but he’s makes 1.25M so he’ll be easy to get a pick for.

This trade would probably make more sense if Nashville slips in the standings a little more. They haven’t been contenders in a while now and could use a shake up. Josi and McDonagh are horses on LD and Kulak can take most of the minutes left from Ekholm. Nashville also gets cap space.


3.) 14 Jan 2023 13:57:20
this is the target you might be able to move Puljujärvi in. add a first and kulak and youll likely have a deal.


4.) 14 Jan 2023 23:00:25
Tkachuk has been a great fit in FLA. No chance they’d trade him less than a year after making a big move to acquire him.


5.) 16 Jan 2023 02:33:52
@ chickenfoot, I think you replied to the wrong trade proposal.


6.) 16 Jan 2023 09:59:33
Yep, you are correct Renidrag ?.


7.) 16 Jan 2023 14:01:33
It was good for a laugh, plus 3 people agreed with you?.


8.) 16 Jan 2023 14:22:42
That IS funny, but regarding Tkachuk, he was a big move for FLA. He's really fit in great, but FLA really needs to fix their D and find some way to get partial cap relief with that gawdy Bobrovsky contract.


 

 

04 Jan 2023 18:08:29
EDM - Puljujarvi, Niemelainen, 2023 1st, 2024 1st

ARI - Chychrun

What a trade could look like without having Broberg or Holloway in it. This is more of a quantity trade but also has value with two young players and two futures. Reclamation project in Puljujarvi, young physical bottom pair D in Niemelainen and obviously two first rounders.

Ebsolutely

1.) 04 Jan 2023 21:50:27
I doubt that does it for Arizona. The mid firsts are nice, but JP sounds like he's heading back to Europe and bottom pairing defenseman are easy to find. I think Zona will look for a first and high end prospect minimum. Reportedly they're asking for more than that from what I hear.


2.) 04 Jan 2023 22:19:36
What about looking at going after Edmunson or Ekholm of Nashville? Would be cheaper?


3.) 04 Jan 2023 22:37:38
I don’t think Puljujarvi goes back to Europe without at least giving it a go on another team. He can definitely have a career in the NHL it just might not be in the top 6.

I think Ekholm would be a really good option too, it’ll just be harder to make work cap wise. I like the idea of getting a top 4 D with term so Chychrun and Ekholm are two good options.

The Oil also have Bourgault and Schiefer as recent first round picks. Bourgault is looking like he’ll be a top 6 winger and probably make the team next year.


4.) 05 Jan 2023 02:13:39
Nice one EBS?.


5.) 05 Jan 2023 14:34:05
I think Edmonton would have to part with either Broberg or Holloway. Something like 1st, Puljujarvi, Broberg/Holloway & Murray makes sense especially since Chychrun's value has been going up alot because of his performance this season.


 

 

02 Dec 2022 04:02:17
ANA - Gibson
EDM - Campbell, Niemelainen, 2024 1st

Or

ANA - Gibson (50% retained)
EDM - Puljujarvi, Niemelainen, 2024 1st

It isn’t a very big package but there won’t be many teams looking to take on a 6.4M goalie with a sub 900 save percentage. The Oilers are one of the few. This gives Anaheim an okay replacement that will do the trick for the next few seasons while Anaheim transitions. The buyout cap is low for both goalies as well, if neither work out.

Why hasn’t any GM offer sheeted Sandin yet? Leafs have -1.5M in cap space and the compensation for a 2.1M offer is only a 3rd. Would a 3 year @2.1M AAV get signed or matched? Have the salary be in the 3M for his last year to get him a high AAV on his next contract.

Ebsolutely

1.) 04 Aug 2022 00:35:51
Because Sandin isn't that good.


 

 

28 Mar 2022 18:30:25
If Husso is the starter for St. Louis in playoffs, will it cost them a lot to unload Binnington or does he have value? He’ll have 4 years left after this season at 6M. Will they just have to let Husso walk to free agency? I think I pretty close comparable is Driedger and he got 3 years at 3.5M.

Ebsolutely

1.) 30 Mar 2022 16:06:01
I’m sure Buffalo would take Binnington. Well pretty sure. He has a solid pedigree and hasn’t been as bad as Murray before he was traded.


 

 

23 Mar 2022 01:38:29
I’d give Kane a blank cheque with a 4 year term on it. Never knew how good he was until seeing him every night. Maybe one of the most underrated players in the league. I don’t know if the Oil can clear enough cap space but I have a feeling he’d show loyalty and take a slight discount to stay in Edmonton.

Ebsolutely

1.) 23 Mar 2022 15:07:55
I love Kane and wanted him on the leafs but I doubt he’d take a discount. Doesn’t seem like that type of guy.


2.) 23 Mar 2022 17:27:40
Considering his money situation maybe not. He’s been run out of what 3 cities, if he fits in well in the room and continues to rack up points then I think he will. I don’t know how many teams were willing to give him a shot this season and I don’t think he’ll forget that either.


3.) 24 Mar 2022 00:36:53
Money talks. He’s in no position to take a discount I know I wouldn’t. Business is business Edmonton gave him a opportunity and he showed them that it was the right choice and that’s that.


4.) 24 Mar 2022 14:46:31
Players take discounts all the time. I don’t think they’ll clear enough cap room for him anyways so we probably will never find out.


5.) 30 Mar 2022 16:07:41
He declared bankruptcy a few years ago. He’s not any player. He needs all the money he can get.


 

 

02 Aug 2021 00:15:00
Who’d you rather have Hyman 5.5M x7 or Coleman 4.9M x 6?

Ebsolutely

1.) 02 Aug 2021 03:50:56
I think Coleman is the better player so I’m going to go with him.


2.) 02 Aug 2021 07:57:05
Coleman is better and cheaper.


3.) 02 Aug 2021 16:53:24
Hymans propped up a lot bc he played in Toronto, he's a really good player, but I love the Coleman deal at less AAV and less term so i'd have to say his deal. Both players are very good tho, i'd just give a slight edge to Coleman.


4.) 02 Aug 2021 20:14:45
I’d rather take Coleman because of his deal but I’m not sure who the better player is. Hoping Hyman can at least live up to that contract for a few years.


5.) 03 Aug 2021 22:27:33
Only reason I prefer Coleman to Hyman is his versatility. Hyman plays a gritty go fetch the puck style and is capable on playing that way on both ends while putting up those points by having good hands.

Coleman is realistically more flexible to play any position and up and down the line up as a two way player who can chip in offensively without sacrificing the defence.

Both are very close choices and would ultimately be based on team needs.


 

 

05 Jun 2021 16:23:56
What should the Oilers do in net?

Option A - keep Koskinen (1YR @ 4.5M) and trade for an upgrade at the trade deadline.

Option B - buyout Koskinen and sign a UFA. (Grubauer, Raanta, Andersen)

Option C - buyout Koskinen and trade for a goalie. (Korpisalo/ Merzlikins, Kuemper, Allen)

Option D - pay whatever the price is to dump Koskinen. (1st or 2nd round pick)

Does Konovalov make the team? He’s 22 and had a .923% in his 3rd year in the KHL.
How about Skinner? He’s 22 and had a breakout year in his second season in the AHL.

Ebsolutely

1.) 06 Jun 2021 01:32:45
No neither of them do. Andersen would be a good buy low option.


2.) 06 Jun 2021 15:12:13
I think Option B. I agree with Nylander on this.
I think Andersen is still a good goalie, and he will have a lot of doubters to prove wrong, he could be a great signing for Edmonton.


3.) 06 Jun 2021 22:39:07
That would be great. I remember one specific oiler fan bashing Anderson when he was signed by Toronto.


4.) 07 Jun 2021 03:20:17
I think there’s a few good free agents out there so that is a likely option. Also with the expansion draft coming there might be a few good goalies available for trade. But I have a feeling the Oilers will stick with the same two goalies until the deadline where Koskinen becomes tradeable.


5.) 07 Jun 2021 15:08:31
Ebs, is Koskinen tradeable though? I see him back in Europe soon.


6.) 07 Jun 2021 15:56:35
At the trade deadline when he only has a couple months left on his contract I don’t see why not. He did have a .917 save percentage last year. I think he’d be a steal at say 2M playing 25-30 games a year.

I think it’s a slight overpay. Mangiapane doesn’t make sense for the Sharks IMO. But shoots you definitely cherry picked that goal stat. Meier is 20+ points a season better and probably 35+ this season.

Boeser is a 65 point per 82 game guy over his career. Although he hasn’t been able to stay healthy. Definitely worth more than a cap dump and a 2nd IMO.

I read Toews salary for this season is only 2.9M so at the deadline it’s like 800K. For a third team to retain 25% of that (200K) it should only cost a mid to low pick. With that being said I could seeing him bringing back a first.

3 years of saving 3.4M then 3 years of only 1.6M isn’t actually that bad. They don’t really have any expiring contracts so maybe they wait one more season with him?

He was a bonafide number one the season he signed his contract. He was a stud defensively and was on a 50 point pace. The GM made a mistake signing him to bridge deals then signing him long term after his best season. Should have either got him at a discount early or waited another season to see if he could repeat his 9M performance. He’s still a 2-3 D, top pair on probably ever team in the league though. I agree considering the cap going up he should have signed for 7-8. He’s been bad but I’m sure he’ll get back his game soon enough.

Dvorak is tradeable. Try to trade Drouin, Gallagher. I think with Caufield, Dach, Suzuki, Slavkovsky that’s a good start to a young forward core. Not sure why they traded Romanov, he and Guhle could have been a good start to a D core as well. Barron could be good but it’s looking pretty bleak on the back end.

Scheifele, Gaudreau, Monohan, Huberdeau, RNH without looking it up, all these guys were signing around 6M around the same time. All equally impressive first 3 seasons. 52 points gets you maybe 4-5M back then, he got 6.3M because of his potential. 21 year olds don’t take discounts they take what they can get. Those guys you named were UFA’s all proven vets and all overpaid. You obviously know they aren’t comparable to his situation. It was a safe bet on his end and on the teams end.
