Friedman mentioned Colorado’s interest in Backlund this season. They also want a backup goalie so I feel they would be the perfect trading partners.

To Colorado Avalanche :
C - Mikael Backlund ( 5.35 @ 1 UFA )
G - Daniel Vladar ( 2.20 @ 2 UFA )
3rd Round Pick in 2025 - CGY

To Calgary Flames :
LD - Samuel Girard ( 5.00 @ 4 UFA )
W - Logan O’Connor ( 1.05 @ 2 UFA )

Flames need a Noah Hanifin replacement for when he’s traded and need to free up a goaltending spot for Dustin Wolf.
Colorado wants another veteran C, want a backup goalie and eventually have to trade a defensemen so they can keep Devon Toews.
This trade would make a lot of sense for both teams.

Jonathan Drouin - Nathan MacKinnon - Mikko Rantanen
Artturi Lehkonen - Ryan Johansen - Valeri Nichushkin
Miles Wood - Mikael Backlund - Tomas Tatar
Andrew Cogliano - Colton Ross - Ben Myers

Devon Toews - Cale Makar
Bowen Byram - Josh Manson
Jack Johnson - Kurtis MacDermid

Alexandar Georgiev
Daniel Vladar

Jonathan Huberdeau - Elias Lindholm - Matt Coronato
Andrew Mangiapane - Nazem Kadri - Yegor Sharangovich
Jakob Pelletier - Blake Coleman - Dillon Dube
Logan O’Connor - Adam Ruzicka - Walker Duehr

Mackenzie Weegar - Rasmus Andersson
Samuel Girard - Chris Tanev
Oliver Kylington - Nikita Zadorov

Jacob Markstrom
Dustin Wolf

(Hanifin Gone)

To NYR :
C - Shane Pinto

To OTT :
LW - Alexis Lafreniere


1.) 17 Sep 2023 05:34:40

Laf is not cracking that top 6.

2.) 18 Sep 2023 04:43:40
Not a bad trade. Also Tarasenko only has a 1 year contract so laf could fit in nicely next year.

3.) 18 Sep 2023 17:55:59
Pinto has no leverage and will sign for half as laf. Would make no sense for ott. I don't care about draft pedigree like some on here, just results.

4.) 19 Sep 2023 11:32:18
agree Shoots. draft pedigree means little if results not there. . Lafreniere leaves me wondering if he has more to give. is he being used properly? would a change of scenery help him?

5.) 19 Sep 2023 18:00:56
Laf can’t play RW that’s why he has been struggling so much he is a LW.

6.) 19 Sep 2023 20:59:07
I sure laf use is a big part of the problem but as you pointed out he would be in the same position in ott.

2 Trade Proposals to Get the Leafs under the cap limit

Vegas Trades

Toronto Trades

La Trades

Toronto Trades


1.) 11 Sep 2023 14:49:25
- I'm not sure why the Cup Champs would consider this trade.

- Vegas' D-corps was widely seen as the biggest reason they won a cup with a journeyman goalie. I'm not sure why they'd trade 2 of their top-6 D, who each average 18 mins/ game?

- Trading Nylander for market value will be a challenge because every signal he's telegraphed is that he's going to market (which I certainly have no issue with) Players wait for their shot at UFA, and the high-end ones usually want to maximize their return.

As for the proposed Lewis trade from LA, he just signed there. Teams don't sign free agents and then pull the rug out from underneath them by trading them. It just doesn't happen, unless it's one of those rare "sign and trades".

Furthermore, Lewis was Drafted by LA, and won Cups there, so at 36 he seems to be choosing to "go home" where his NHL career started for one last go-around before retirement.

Last but not least, if Robertson is traded, he'll be a throw-in on a more consequential deal for reasons previously offered.

2.) 12 Sep 2023 05:40:50
@Chickenfoot that’s really good reasoning but I was just kidding, I was being ignorant because Pinball’s mock trade triggered me lmao. My bad

3.) 12 Sep 2023 12:38:00
CASUAL: too funny. I should have known better! : )

4.) 12 Sep 2023 19:38:54
I love coming on this site and seeing Chickeenfoot took up NotACasual and Ebsolutley as role models some people really need guidance and people to look up to and it really warms my heart seeing what you guys do for him.

Toronto Trades

Calgary Trades

*Brodie would have to accept the trade otherwise it's a no go obviously.


1.) 11 Sep 2023 06:42:28
Oops Rielly*
but you get my point, not saying Hanifin is Rielly but that's exactly what the trade looks like lol

2.) 11 Sep 2023 18:58:18
Hanfin? What are you talking about man.

3.) 12 Sep 2023 00:25:54
Actually, I don't get your point. You have an asterisk beside Tanev's name, then mention Brodie, then Reilly having to accept a trade.
You then for some reason bring in Hanifin's name Into the proposal, so I am not sure who is intended to be traded in this proposal, as it contains 5 different defensemen.

4.) 12 Sep 2023 03:30:24
Ohh he’s referring to the trade below saying they are equally bad.

5.) 12 Sep 2023 05:32:44
Yeah it was a joke post lol

6.) 12 Sep 2023 15:15:20
Now I understand.

I have stopped wasting my time reading what pinball posts, as they are always bad for the other team.

7.) 12 Sep 2023 19:41:45
But I do love the Comp of Tanev to Brodie both very effective defenders who bring a ton to the table outside of offence. I’d absolutely love Tanev on the leafs far, far more then Hanfin. Hanfin is probably better but the leafs don’t need a LHD at all.



10 Sep 2023 07:47:17
To Winnipeg Jets :
G - Linus Ullmark ( 5.00 @ 2 UFA )
RD - Brandon Carlo ( 4.10 @ 4 UFA )
1st Round Pick in 2026 - BOS

To Boston Bruins :
G - Connor Hellebuyck ( 6.16 @ 1 UFA )
C - Mark Scheifele ( 6.12 @ 1 UFA )

another mock trade, this would obviously be a trade that would keep the Jets competitive. Ullmark has been rumoured to be on the trading block and their biggest weakness is C. Assuming the Bruins would have no problem resigning these them, idk though. What do y’all think?

Kyle Connor - Cole Perfetti - Nikolaj Ehlers
Alex Iafallo - Gabriel Vilardi - Nino Niederreiter
Rasmus Kupari - Vladislav Namestnikov - Mason Appleton
Morgan Barron - Adam Lowry - David Gustafsson

Josh Morrissey - Neal Pionk
Nate Schmidt - Brandon Carlo
Brendan Dillon - Logan Stanley

Linus Ullmark
Laurent Brossoit

Brad Marchand - Mark Scheifele - David Pastrnak
James Van Riemsdyk - Pavel Zacha - Jake Debrusk
Morgan Geekie - Charlie Coyle - Fabian Lysell
Milan Lucic - Patrick Brown - Trent Frederic

Hampus Lindholm - Charlie McAvoy
Matt Grzelcyk - Kevin Shattenkirk
Derek Forbort - Jakub Zboril

Connor Hellebuyck
Jeremy Swayman


1.) 10 Sep 2023 11:27:25
- perhap the B’s replace Carlo with a different positional player than Carlo, who would also play behind DeMelo in the D pairings.

- To get Scheifele and Helly i think BOS would need to include more assets as well.

- these teams seem well suited as trade partners to come up with a fit along these lines.

2.) 10 Sep 2023 15:34:35
It is a fair trade but the Jets waiting until 2026 for a 1st is a long uncertain time so it should be unprotected.

3.) 10 Sep 2023 17:10:56
Not enough to get both Jets. You could get one with that offer, but with the 1st being 3 drafts away, definitely not both.

Plus Ullmark says no.

As soon as I post it, Backlund is named Captain lmao




27 Sep 2023 21:05:12
Flames press conference at 3:30 today.. signs an extension today and now a press conference, mhmm. I’m assuming he’s being named captain.




10 Sep 2023 07:57:11
Dallas Stars look pretty stacked. Very early prediction that they win the cup? Or atleast make a deep run.


1.) 12 Sep 2023 03:36:11
They’re literally the same team but with Duchene instead of Domi.

2.) 17 Sep 2023 05:34:19
I don't see them as the top in the West, however a hot Oetinger could win it. I still see Oilers, Knights and Avalanche a bit ahead.



09 Sep 2023 21:51:19
Just some Flames predictions

- Lindholm resigns at 8.90 @ 8 UFA
- Hanifin traded to Buffalo Sabres


1.) 09 Sep 2023 23:57:37
Sabres have Dahlin and Power on the left side. Not many teams need a LHD. Kings make a ton of sense tho.



10 Jul 2023 12:18:26
That’s all Ottawa got for Debrincat? The market is so bad right now, its going to seriously screw over the Flames. Gonna be a long rebuild..


1.) 11 Jul 2023 04:05:08
Yup people always overestimate players values on this site. Pretty well was the expected return on HF boards.

2.) 13 Jul 2023 07:59:55
Seems weird to compare. Debrincat says not signing and 2 teams? Hanifan has as many as 6 already and he has a year left. Very bad comparison.

Be prepared to give up Reinbacher if you want Zegras lol trading Zegras would set the Ducks back so far. Quality > Quantity

That's actually a pretty fair deal, however I could see the Kings saying no due to how high Turcotte was drafted. Maybe they're willing to be more patient with him but it is a very fair trade.

@vbb newsflash insiders are saying the market is terrible for forwards right now if you keep up with hockey news, it seems like you only just flap your gums on this site. A 73pt Sniper with a low cap hit definitely should've gotten more, same with Reilly Smith.

@vbb I didn’t mean to imply that the Leafs have a bad D core, I just mean that he always prioritizes his team’s defense so I wouldn’t be surprised if it looks even better than it does right now.

I personally think they'll be going with the Heritage jerseys as their permanent. Clean unis
