Colorado: Alex Newhook, Sam Girard and 1st 2023

Winnipeg: PLD ( resigned @ 8x 8.5 )

Colorado- PLD will likely sign on a true cup contender and he brings in the player that fills there biggest need.

Winnipeg- moves a player who doesn't want to resign while getting a replacement for 2c who's only 21, a upgrade on the 2nd pairing and 1st.

Note: while Jets fans will probably are gonna come in here and remind me that their left side is stacked and Girard isn't needed A. He is a upgrade on Dillon/Schmitd B. Colorado would need to send back cap and he's the most logical choice C. not a lot of relevant RHD are avaible league wide.


1.) 27 Feb 2023 20:39:44
Colorado's cap issues are their cap issues not Winnipeg's. Girard isn't needed and isn't an upgrade on anything Winnipeg currently has as his only value is offensively and Morrissey is better.

There's also little to no chance the Jets trade PLD in division without Colorado paying the in division tax.

2.) 28 Feb 2023 02:17:42
Girard isn’t a pure offensive player. Although he isn’t big he is very effective on the rush and is good positionally. Like I said he’d be the Jets 2nd best LHD.

@Memarcus- I’d love to see why you think Schmitd and Dillon are better then Girard?

3.) 28 Feb 2023 03:18:26
Dillon is far better defensively, big and physical, which is what the Jets need.

The Jets have Morrissey, Dillon and Samberg on the left side. There's no room or cap space for Girard. Plus the Jets defense is small as it is, they don't need to get smaller.

Girard is too small, not good enough defensively and too expensive. The Jets need to clear some money from their defense and add it elsewhere, not add more cap to the defense.

Newhook and the first are nice, but the Jets may not be sold on Newhook anymore with his struggles this year.

I think more than likely if they move PLD it will be back out east. You'd think Colorado would have to blow the Jets away with an offer for Winnipeg to trade him in division.

Boston: 1st round pick 2023, Mike Rielly and 3rd 2024

Columbus: Gavrikov ( 50% retained ) and Nyquist ( LTIR until Playoffs)

The bruins add a top 4 dman and get out of the Rielly contract. Come playoff time Nyquist can add bottom 6 scoring while not being to bad defensively. The trade breaks down to 1st for Gravikov and 3rd/Rielly for Nyquist


1.) 21 Feb 2023 21:14:42
- I think you have a conversation-starter here for the teams to build on.

- Rielly only got in 10 games this year and has one more season at 1.875M.

- CLB would want additional compensation for Rielly’s extra year.

- there’s probably a fit for this if they drop Rielly, add an agreeable prospect, or make that 3rd a 2nd?.

2.) 22 Feb 2023 00:43:04
Rumour is (until it's confirmed, it's still a rumour) that the trade is a first and a third for Gavrikov. To facilitate this trade, the Bruins are trying to trade Craig Smith. Google Gavrikov, Boston Bruins, and it's everywhere.



21 Feb 2023 16:27:47
Just curious guys everyone says it is absolutely imperative for the leafs to improve the defence but who would be a upgrade on any of the current guys in the leafs top 6?


Lilijgren has been so good in his roll I am very happy at where he is. Sandin plays a different roll being a 2 way dman who can play pp but maybe not as physical ( still physical tho ) as a dman available like McCabe , Edmonston and Gravkov but he's also younger and aside from Gravkov are those 2 really better?

Holl is the leafs best PKer and there is really no reason he should be moved because as a 6th dman he fills that roll perfectly.

So all in all I see the top 4 as set and none of the available dman beside Gravkov being a upgrade on Sandin ( I guess he could probably push Girodano down ) but is that really worth a 1st?

I just feel like no one actually watches the leafs and say that the defence is the problem. You can upgrade that current core without adding a star and you don't do that by trade you do that through drafting


1.) 21 Feb 2023 19:34:06
I would rather Mayfield instead of Holl and Brodie. He is defensively responsible and plays a more physical game than either.

2.) 21 Feb 2023 19:37:07
The answer is Holl because he is overpaid for what he brings to the table. Great on the PK, but everywhere else. yikes. With his modified NTC however he likely isn't moving. We do need to improve the defense because as it stands right now it is not built for the playoffs.

3.) 21 Feb 2023 20:17:16
Just my opinion, but I feel the Leafs lost some edge when Jake Muzzin was injured. In the playoffs it’s as much about being difficult to play against as it is about skill.

4.) 21 Feb 2023 21:21:02
- I firmly agree with Coulson & Burner.

- I haven’t heard one credible observer who didn’t see the need for one more D, preferably 2.

- like it or not, this group of sweethearts haven’t shown an ability to win at playoff hockey. You have to ask yourself why, then make the necessary changes.

- the deadline is the chance to fill in little gaps or add depth. Dubas mismanaged the rebuild early and often. Whatever happens in the next 2 weeks can’t undo what has been done, but a couple of nasty D would only help. ?.

5.) 22 Feb 2023 04:25:06
@Coulsion- Mayfield isn’t available nor is he better then Brodie

@MG69- Holl is good as a 6th dman who plays 15 min a night. Very good actually but when he is bumped up the lineup he isn’t so good.

@Burner- The penguins, Avalanche and Lightning aren’t exactly the most physical teams but yes Muzzin was underrated when healthy

@Chicken foot- 1st of all Dubas had absolutely nothing to do with the leafs rebuild. Lou Lamerello was the GM and he inherited the roster he built. 2nd of all Lilijgren and Sandin never really played in the playoffs in a extended roll + Girodano only played 1. That’s 3 new dman. The leafs aren’t getting a upgrade on any of there top 4 dman and there is no sense upgrading a 6th dman.

6.) 22 Feb 2023 12:45:46
@vbbbvvbb agree to disagree. Just in the last 5 games Holl has played more than 20mins a game three times, so if his role is a 6th dman than he's being misplayed by our coach. He doesn't play with any sort of aggressiveness and come playoffs gets bullied in every facet of the game. I'd feel much more comfortable looking at acquiring a dman who doesn't play as soft as ice cream on a hot day.

7.) 22 Feb 2023 13:32:35
@vbbbvvbb in fact Holl has played more than 15 minutes a night this entire season.

8.) 22 Feb 2023 15:55:35
VB: we see things VERY differently, and that's okay. I'm certainly not trying to change your mind, but regarding Dubas not being responsible for the current rebuild:

- he's been GM since spring of '18 when they chose him over the Dean of NHL GM's, Lou freakin' Lamoriello.

- 5 years is longer than most people get as GM if they don't achieve some measure of post-season success.

- most fanbases constantly criticize their favourite team's management & coaches. leaf fans are a special breed. Why on earth you would think a GM after 5 years has "nothing to do with the leaf rebuild" is absolutely unfathomable to hockey fans like me.

- this list could go on and on, but to sum up, after generously overpaying in his contract negotiations, Forbes Magazine declared him the "NHL's Most Generous GM" following a poll of NHL Agents.

By overpaying early, tying up half his cap in 4 guys who haven't got it done, Dubas has doomed his team to never being able to finish their rebuild. Depth wins championships. What a waste of a generational pick like Matthews.



15 Feb 2023 18:33:52
Calgary- Mackenzie Weager ( believe it or not there are reports out there that he is available do a quick Google search even with extension) and 1st 2023

Vancouver: Jt Miller

Calgary- Weager has struggled in there System and Miller could potentially help rejuvenate the flames putrid offence.

Vancouver: Weager fills a hole for there biggest meet and they get a 1st while pushing back there window and allowing a retool. Basically Weager replaces what Tanev brought but is healthy.


1.) 15 Feb 2023 19:50:41
I heard the same about Weegar, but at 29 he doesn’t seem like the right fit for a rebuilding team. (Then again, VCR doesn’t seem to know who or what they are, so who knows how if they’re going to rebuild or retool? ) . Your values seem close though.

2.) 15 Feb 2023 20:37:10
Two rival teams in the same division making a trade for players that are so far disappointing on their current teams.

Why would this happen?

3.) 16 Feb 2023 00:41:30
@DrwDave- ever here of a change of scenery? That’s like the most common reason to make a trade not to mention they fill each teams biggest needs.

4.) 16 Feb 2023 02:55:32
no chance they trade Weegar especially for that little to a rival



13 Feb 2023 12:43:58
Edmonton: Tyson Barrie, Kailer Yamamoto, Jesse Pulijujarvi, Philip Broberg, 1st 2024
and 2nd 2023

San Jose: Erik Karlsson ( 3 million retained 8.5 mil cap hit ) and filler contracts

Rumours are Edmonton and San Jose are in discussions for Karlsson but there is troubles salary cap wise. This gives the oilers abit of cap space while bringing in a player who is currently the best offensive dman in the NHL ( this season ).

I'd be terrified of taking a penalty against the oilers. If they make this trade there PP alone will win them games.


1.) 13 Feb 2023 16:06:21
If Broberg isn’t available in a Chychrun trade he shouldn’t be for a Karlsson trade IMO. I’d be okay if the Oil waited another season to revisit the Karlsson talks when his value comes down and contract has one less year on it.

2.) 13 Feb 2023 16:36:00
VB: this is the best post you've ever shared on this site.

EBS: like you, I tend to agree that the younger Chychrun is the better trade target, but there's a lot of rumours out there right now about EK65 to EDM.

3.) 13 Feb 2023 18:06:56
While I agree Chychrun is the more “sensible” target Erik Karlsson is looking like a franchise player this season like he did in Ottawa. Skinner looks good and Jack Campbell has the potential to get hott. There goalies are set for better or worse. There defence would be set after this trade and all they would need is forward depth.

Erik Karlsson “could” put them over the top.

4.) 13 Feb 2023 22:32:18
Despite being a Flames fan, I have to admire your creativity. And I understand going all in while McDavid and Draisaitl are still there.

Imho, the Sharks would jump on this.
However, I wonder if it isn’t too big a risk for the Oilers? The cost is huge.
There’s no denying Karlsson’s talent, but he has proven to be quite brittle for the last four years, and he’s not getting younger.

And, the Oilers’ skill level is not the problem, it’s their depth, especially on D, and this depletes it further. Who would play in Broberg’s spot?

Don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade, just trying to think objectively.

5.) 14 Feb 2023 17:36:22
I seen a tweet that said Bob Stauffer an Oil insider/ colour guy said the price could be 1st, Bourgault, Bouchard, Barrie, Puljujarvi. That seems insane to me. Lol.

If Paniran demanded a trade would he have positive value or negative value considering his contract?




19 May 2023 17:58:13
Well the leafs just got rid of the best GM they had in their franchises history. I'm ready to hop onto a new bandwagon wagon at this point. Whoever gets him will be getting debatably the best GM in the NHL ( Yzerman probably has him beat. ) hoping John Chayka replaces him.


1.) 22 May 2023 03:42:14
What made him the best GM? I dont think he was horrible, but don't think he's the best.

IMO. Keefe shoulda went, not Dubas.

2.) 27 May 2023 17:15:24
He found a way to fill a competitive roster with limited cap space and find the most out of cheap players. He made some mistakes but they were rookie mistakes that he will learn from.



31 Mar 2023 19:38:28
Is Josh Anderson the most overrated player in the NHL? Now I'll acknowledge he is big and fast and throws around his body with a decent scoring touch. He's a really good 3rd liner. But when put in a top 6 position he just doesn't have the hockey sense to play with elite player nor the play making skills to make people better. People act like he's a bonafide top 6 winger and is worth his contract when his only season over 51 points came in Bantam. I'd much prefer a player like Perron over Anderson IMO because Perron can make his teammates better and Anderson doesn't


1.) 31 Mar 2023 21:28:25
He is overrated forsure. However his value isn't just in points. He's a heavy player. Those guys are valuable when the time comes. I seen that a couple years ago when they made the final.
Ya hes a really good 3rd liner, and he's a borderline 2nd. I've never really seen him be able to fit on a line.
He has a lot of good tools, with the size and speed, however VB, as you said his hockey sense is lacking .
I was hoping he'd be a 30 to 35 goal guy, but that's not gonna happen.

I personally really like having him on Montreal, however I will admit I am often wishing for more from him.

2.) 04 Apr 2023 03:04:12
I agree with everything you said but not the Boarderline second. At a 3-4 mil cap hit any team would love to have him on there 3rd line but a competitive team can’t have them in there top 6. Some guys like Nyquist, Kerfoot, Laughton, etc can play top 6 effectively ( boarderline ) because they can make players around them better with there hockey sense but Anderson would be a anchor due to his hockey sense in a top 6 role. I’d rather have Anderson on a 3rd line then any of those guys tho because he brings a special element with a scoring touch but you don’t want him touching your top 6 in any circumstance.

3.) 04 Apr 2023 09:21:16
Well VB. I dunno, maybe your right. However of the 3 players you mentioned as examples, id take Anderson over them anyday on my team over them.

4.) 05 Apr 2023 22:52:03
If cap hit wasn’t a thing I would too but not in a top 6 position. Those 3 guys can find chemistry with anyone.



28 Mar 2023 02:18:36
What are people's thoughts on players sitting out on the pride nights for both religious and safety reasons? ( Russia )


1.) 28 Mar 2023 03:18:41
Just like the people being celebrated have freedom of choice, so should the hockey players.

2.) 28 Mar 2023 17:15:45
I agree 100%.

3.) 30 Mar 2023 10:46:51
I respect their decision and for them sticking to their beliefs. The only people that blow it out of proportion is jobless twitter users lol



19 Mar 2023 01:33:30
Hard to believe Danny heatley is only 42 growing up he was my favourite player. It seems like he's been out of the NHL forever. How did he manage to go from a near Ovechkin caliber goal scorer to absolutely atrocious in the span of a few seasons. Did he have the biggest decline in NHL history not including 1 year wonders like Chechoo ( ironically was traded for heatley when I was 9 years old at the time )


1.) 19 Mar 2023 18:35:16
Ya, Dany Heatley was quite the mystery. Looked like a 1st ballot Hall of Famer, then looked like he should be in rhe ECHL.
I wonder if mental health got in the way? I'm speculating that this might be the case. With the car accident of Dan Snyder. Although he put up good numbers in Ottawa after the accident. I also remember hearing rumors of substance/ alchol abuse., however I can't verify those either.

There havs been a few guys that went from Stud to Dud, but his was pretty sudden. Should have scored at least 500 goals and been in the Hall.

2.) 24 Mar 2023 20:36:21
I’d say there is a very, very high chance supstance abuse played a huge role in his downfall.

Lol both trades are awful. The leafs will just buyout Murray and call it a day. Johanson also doesn’t have Negative value.

Why would a playoff team rebuild? Teams make money by being competitive and the leafs are. They make more money by getting bounced in round 1 every year then they would not making playoffs. Just a dumb take the leafs wont rebuild just like they won’t move Mathews, Nylander, Marner, Rielly or Tavares.

30 May 2023 04:10:53
Why would they take Lindholm over Mathews+. I’m sure the leafs would be willing to ad a ton to Mathews for that pick. Lindholm a pending UFA even resigned to a long term contract doesn’t even come close to that pick. A comparible player in Horvat returned a late 1st, 2nd round pick equivalent prospect and a cap dump ( not negative value but needed to be sent back to make cap work )

Lindholm for Celumans, Foudy and LAK 1st would be fair in a vacuum but Calgary will resign there top C considering the money they invested in there current core.

I thought everyone saying Boston wasn’t going to make the playoffs was out to lunch but I thought they’d be in a wild card spot and not setting records. I think the biggest disappointment for me is Flordia coming off a presidents trophy to maybe the 8th wildcard spot.

Hard to beat Morrisey for biggest breakout. I knew Karlsson was going to have a good season after Burns left because he got that top pp to himself but I thought 60-70 points and not 90. That’s crazy good for him and I hope he’s traded to Edmonton in the offseason so he can hopefully win a cup or Atleast make that PP the most exciting thing the NHL has seen in a long time.

Aside from Huberdeau i thought Sieder would’ve took a bigger step in his game offensively Not sure if I’d label that as a huge disappointment tho. Freddy Anderson for me has been a let down.

Bonus most underrated young player and imo should win the Calder———- Marcel Mancelli the biggest bright spot on the joke of the Coyotes organization. After absolutely dominating the AHL last season he’s developed into a top 6 playmaker with potential to be well over a point per game with good linemates. Think Robert Thomas when he plays wing.
