tough end for trouba and doesn't feel committed
Boston McAvoy
Winnipeg Trouba

boston wanted him bad when he requested a trade a couple years ago, he's from around there, doesn't want to be in canada and McAvoys contract could help the jets a bit better.

21 Apr 2019 10:48:34
Big no from boston imo. doesn't make sense for them

21 Apr 2019 12:00:16
😂 no from boston

Amazing that despite having an entire team of untouchables (just ask their totally unbiased fans on this site) they’re booking tee times after round 1

Buh bye.

21 Apr 2019 16:26:59
Too bad the Jets can't trade their coach. His lack of systems and poor use of a talented roster took a very good team and made them look average.

21 Apr 2019 16:38:56
I think Boston stays with McAvoy. I think he’s the better player and if McAvoy’s contract would help Winnipeg, why wouldn’t Boston keep him?

21 Apr 2019 17:13:27
I don’t think Boston would do it due to contracts, but they would be getting a much better defenseman. They need someone who can actually play defense and get the puck out of their end.

21 Apr 2019 19:18:08
‘Get the puck out of their end’

Thats what McAvoy does. I’ve watched all five games so far of the series and McAvoy has been solid. And ‘get the puck out of their end’, like Trouba pinning himself to the glass allowing for Schwartz’s GWG in GM5? c'mon man.

21 Apr 2019 20:29:21
You've been watching the series and you can't see that Boston is terrible at getting the puck out of their end? I guess McAvoy is just having a bad series then, because he can't do it. Regardless, Boston needs a high quality defenseman that can actually play defense. Chara is too old and slow.

21 Apr 2019 21:09:14
McAvoy And Carlo are two very solid defensive deffensman.

24 Feb 2019 23:01:43
Toronto Acquires:
Jason Pominville [5.60 Million x 1 Year]

Buffalo Acquires:
Gabriel Gagne [700K x 1 Year]
2019 3rd Round Pick
Conditional 2020 5th Round Pick **Becomes a 2020 4th if Toronto advances past Round1.

Buffalo is currently 6 points back of Carolina/ Pittsburgh, and has struggled as of late. Pominville hasn't been as good as he was in the beginning of the season, so Buffalo could be looking at moving him. If Hagelin [with retention] brings back a 3rd and a 5th, Pominville with none should bring back a 3rd and a 5th as well. For Toronto, they acquire a bottom six vet who could prove handy in the playoffs against tougher teams like Boston.

25 Feb 2019 00:12:05
I think Toronto could put that money to better use.

23 Feb 2019 00:41:18
2019 5th rounder

2019 1st rounder

22 Feb 2019 14:51:55
1st round pick 2019
conditional 2nd rounder in 2020 ( if Boston makes cup final or if Stone resigns, it becomes a 1st rounder).


22 Feb 2019 15:04:34
I can see Ottawa accepting that, i think.

20 Feb 2019 23:43:43

Bruins get:
- Charlie Coyle

Wild get:
- Ryan Donato
- 5th round pick (2019)

Bruine get their big center they've been needing for the 2nd line or 3rd line

Wild get a young player who needs s new home

21 Feb 2019 04:11:00
That’s a good trade for the Bruins.

Something big is going on in Minnesota. First Niedereitter, now Coyle.

21 Feb 2019 13:13:06
Don't think there is anything big is going on in Minny -- they've lost two of their best players for the year and aren't going anywhere without them just doing a bit of a re-tool on the fly. Solid deal for Boston for sure, and Donato has some intriguing upside for Minnesota.

21 Feb 2019 15:42:02
I think there is Staal is next, and then maybe Spurgeon or Brodin as well as Zucker and Stalock.

21 Feb 2019 16:01:52
Why do people put unbelievable on a deal that has already happened, it makes no sense to me.

21 Feb 2019 17:40:47
Cause people are jerks.

21 Feb 2019 18:25:01
I read something that they are freeing up cash to make runs at big name free agents.

20 Feb 2019 23:09:11
Apparently rumblings of Coyle to Bruins for Donato and a 5th. As per Bob McKenzie.

Not confirmed but if this is true I think potentially a good pick up for Bruins but I have not paid too much attention to Coyle this season. So maybe not so good haha.

20 Feb 2019 20:16:52
Ottawa gives:
- stone or Duchene (50% retained)
( both to me seem to have similar trade value )

Bruins give:
- 2019 1st rounder
- 2020 3rd rounder ( 2nd rounder if the bruins make the Stanley cup finals in 2020)
- Heinen
- Donato
- Backes (50% retained)

OTTAWA gets: high rounded picks that they could use to trade up in the drafts, they get not one but two young established nhl ready players, and an experienced player who knows the two young players playing styles

BRUINS get an established nhl top 6 1st/2nd line player to fill in a big need: a player to play consistently with Krejci and DeBrusk

20 Feb 2019 21:00:51
Too much from the Bruins for either UFA.

22 Feb 2019 14:59:33
Not too much at all islanjet, quit smoking dude.

But I don't understand why both teams are retaining here, Duchene contract as well as stone is up at year's end, no need for Ottawa to retain at this point

Also Donato already gone in Coyle trade so I would imagine debrusk would be replacement here.

20 Feb 2019 03:34:49

1st in 2019
2nd in 2020
Conditional 3rd round pick if Boston makes the Cup final

20 Feb 2019 18:26:25
2x1st, 2nd, plus a good roster player is too much for Kreider. Yes, he’s a great player. No, he’s not Duchene level. Kreider is more like Dzingel than Duchene.

20 Feb 2019 20:05:42
Switch out Kreider for Ottawa’s stone or Duchene then we Boston will think about it ( my opinion )

18 Feb 2019 03:32:51
ottawa: Duchene
nashville: Fabbro, 1st

Ottawa: Stone
Winnipeg: Niku, Petan, Comrie, 1st

Ottawa: Dzingle
Boston: 1st

Ottawa: Anderson
LA: 3rd.

18 Feb 2019 04:14:41
Nashville has to commit and go all in one year and why not this year, yes from Nashville.
Extremely easy no from sens.
No from Boston.
Don’t see a reason why LA does that. like at all.

18 Feb 2019 04:19:04
Big no from Nashville.

Big no from Ottawa.

Close, but Ott will want more, Boston’s first won’t be that good.

And no from LA, they don’t need Anderson, they need picks not to give them up for ancient goalies.

18 Feb 2019 14:10:11
I didn't think the Jets will be giving up Niku. If the Sens want a defenseman, they may get Stanley.

18 Feb 2019 16:08:55
Jets will not trade Niku for a rental.

18 Feb 2019 16:26:13
Rumour is Nashville is all in and Fabbro is one of the pieces they are dangling for a top rental, so I could see it happening.

12 Feb 2019 21:05:59
Rumour has it that LA is looking at trading Kovy and he is willing to waive his NMC. If you've watched him you can tell he's still a very talented player and surprisingly he can still skate I believe he can be a near PPG player in the right situation.

Boston: David Backas And 1st 2019

LA: Ilya Kovlachuk

Boston- Gets takes a waiver on a player who is clearly still and offensive threat and can contribute greatly on the PP but just hasn't fit into LA's system and they rid them selves of Backas's contract.

LA- Gets a 1st round pick for compensation of the the cap dump in Backas. I feel without Backas he could probably return a 3rd but Boston doesn't have the cap space.

12 Feb 2019 21:32:12
I'd rather have Backes come playoff time. grit and toughness come playoff time. Kovalchucks time has passed., he is horrible on the back check, and now that his 40 to 50 goal seasons are over, he jus can't justify being a top 6 anymore.
Of course if he only had one year left on deal, he'd more valuable., but with 2 years left, he's just not the same guy he was, when he left for KHL all those years ago.

12 Feb 2019 22:07:56
Oh boy, there is 0 incentive for LA wanting Backes even if they can get a late 1st back.

No from LA.

12 Feb 2019 22:36:11
I can’t see LA taking a $6M cap hit just for a 1st. Even if Kovalchuk is available, LA is looking to rebuild. Picks, prospects, and cap space. Not another boat anchor contract. They would be better off just keeping Kovalchuk.

13 Feb 2019 03:28:44
Sosa I don’t think you understand how good he really is. If you watch him he has even better hands then before and can still skate. Imo he hasn’t even Lost a step LA is just the worst possible fit.

13 Feb 2019 05:40:29
Vb. I'll take your word for it., but I'm still taking a pass.
If all he had was this year on a contract, sure. but I wouldn't want his last 2 years.

13 Feb 2019 14:40:40
Backas is also signed for the same amount and his a solid AHL player but he’s not a top 9 NHLer anymore he provides absolutely nothing besides Grit which is dying in the nhl. He’s slow and has lost his offensive touch 6 million for a practically useless player.

13 Feb 2019 17:16:59
His last name is BackEs for the love of god you clearly don't have a clue what you're talking about if you can't spell their name right. he's not an AHLer he has a place in this league but he is overpaid yes.

14 Feb 2019 00:49:59
So the fact that I miss an E in his last name tarnishes my credibility and show that “ no clue about what I’m talking about” hmm, that makes total sense. Valid points are obviously invalid when a grammatical error takes place. You’re painfully unintelligent. Disagreeing with my opinion is fine obviously but the fact you sincerely believe that a single letter is a factor of credibility is insane.

05 Feb 2019 03:16:12
To Boston: Rickard Rakell

To Anaheim: Heinen, Lauzon, 2019 1st

05 Feb 2019 05:06:14
Easy pass from ducks.

03 Feb 2019 20:20:27
Hayes to Boston


Donato, Zboril, conditional 3rd

*3rd turns into a 2nd if Hayes re-signs

01 Feb 2019 19:36:57
Jackets trade: Panarin

Bruins trade: DeBrusk, Carlo

Fair trade?

01 Feb 2019 22:59:39
For a rental stand point, pretty good for columbus. but bruins are not in the position to acquire the breadman and give up two young impact players. no from boston. especially since panarin can walk after this season defs not worth the risk.

02 Feb 2019 00:52:31
Agree ^.

30 Jan 2019 23:58:27
Canucks trade d olli juolevi and f goldy and 2ed round pick 2019 for Boston bruins young d Charlie McAvoy and C Jakob karlsson and Charlie McAvoy and D Quinn Hughes would be awesome together.

31 Jan 2019 00:24:47
Ya Boston laughs at you.

31 Jan 2019 14:02:49
Not even close to a chance.

29 Jan 2019 22:18:43
Deadline Deals:

SJS Acquire:
Marcus Johansson [4.5 Million x 1 Year]
Ben Lovejoy [2.7 Million x 1 Year]

NJD Acquire:
Melker Karlsson [2.0 Million x 2 Years]
Jacob Middleton [0.7 Million x 2 Years]
2020 2nd Round Draft Pick

[Karlsson and the 2nd get moved for Johansson, Middleton gets swapped for Lovejoy]


DET Acquires:
Derick Brassard [3.0 Million x 1 Year]
Tristan Jarry [0.7 Million x 2 Years]
Zach Aston-Reese [0.9 Million x 1 Year]
2019 2nd Round Draft Pick

PIT Acquires:
Gustav Nyquist [4.75 Million x 1 Year]
Jacob De La Rose [0.9 Million x 2 Years]
2020 4th Round Draft Pick

[Nyquist goes for Brassard, Jarry and the 2nd, basically Pittsburgh upgrades mightily on a struggling Brassard - I've seen Pens fans willing to budge on this type of proposal for guys like Kevin Hayes, ZAR goes for JDLR and the 4th].

DET Acquires:
Danton Heinen [0.9 Million x 1 Year]

BOS Acquires:
Derick Brassard [3.0 Million x 1 Year]

[Boston upgrades their 3C, they give away the guy with more potential for the guy who can likely make a difference asap]

[Basically, Nyquist, JDLR and 4th for Heinen, ZAR, Jarry and 2nd].

31 Jan 2019 19:19:12
I like this as a wings fan.

22 Jan 2019 17:38:02
edm: draisaitl and spooner

ott: stone and duchene if both resign with oilers


phl: simmonds

edm: lucic and 2020 2nd pick

bos: halak

edm: puljujarvi,sekera,2019 1st and 2019 2nd pick

car: ferland and hamiton

22 Jan 2019 18:00:13
Oilers take on an extra 6-8+ mil in the first one, so impossible.
Hell no from philly.
Hell no from boston.
Another no from carolina and we don't know if sekera will ever play again.

22 Jan 2019 18:09:41
Only the 4th trade is somewhat fair to both teams. Edmonton has to trade a couple of their top 7 players in order to get players that they need to turn this sinking ship around.

22 Jan 2019 20:20:22
stone and duchene are not gona resigh so they need to trade them or lose them and for money draisaitl and spooner are 11.5 mil and duchene and stone are 13.35 its only 2 mil differents

pilly needs a starter goalie and talbot would b a great fit

bos has been reported that they are interested in bring back lucic.

22 Jan 2019 21:59:38
i meant if they resign in edmonton. not now. i'm sure both players will be seeking around 8-9mil per year.

22 Jan 2019 22:34:32
why would boston be interested in lucic, whos only going downhill. they already have backes, who is pretty much as bad, but has less term on his deal. if anything, itll be backes for like lucic, a second and some prospect.

and talbots been basically relegated by koskinen, i can't see philly considering him a MAJOR upgrade on any of hart, elliot, neuvirth and whatever else they have.

and as for the duchene trade, to be honest, i don't know if Ottawa does that. Duchene's been playing elite this season, and while he isn't at Drais' level, and probably never will be, Stone is 20-30x better than Spooner, lol. To get both on extensions, for just Drais is not happening, its like Ottawa upgrades at center [despite having logan brown and colin white] while trading away the only competent winger they have aside from brady tkachuk.

23 Jan 2019 00:20:12
Talbot to Philly makes sense for the right price IMO. And I’m sure Simmonds would be the target so I could see it working. I think Philly would like to have Talbot for the rest of the season instead of investing money in him in the offseason.

23 Jan 2019 04:10:03
I love Simmonds but does Edmonton really need another big, physical player? They have Lucic, Kassian and Nurse. I’d be going after speed if I were Chiarelli, let the leafs have Simmonds please, lol.

21 Jan 2019 23:37:36
2019 2nd round pick
D Jakub Zboril

RW Wayne Symmonds

20 Jan 2019 23:38:09
Boston Bruins Trade:
David Backes [6.0 Million x 3 Years]
Danton Heinen [0.872 Million x 1 Year]
Urho Vaakanainen [0.925 Million x 3 Years]
Jakob Fosbacka-Karlsson [0.916 Million x 1 Year]
2019 2nd Round Draft Selection
2020 3rd Round Draft Selection

St. Louis Blues Trade:
Brayden Schenn [5.15 Million x 2 Years]
Nikita Soshnikov [0.800 Million x 2 Years]
Patrick Maroon [1.500 Million x 1 Year]

Essentially, Boston acquires Brayden Schenn for a slightly higher cost than Rick Nash last year, since Schenn has an extra year on his contract. JFK and the 2nd offset for Backes' contract, while the 3rd goes straight for Maroon. Schenn hauls Vaak, the Bruins top defensive prospect who is an a-lister in most books, and Heinen, who was solid last year and took a step back this year. [I think St. Louis would rather Heinen than Bjork/ Donato although idk]

Bruins Lineup:
Marchand - Bergeron - Pastranak
Schenn - Krejci - Debrusk
Cehlarik - Donato - Maroon
Kuraly - Acciari - Wagner

Blues Lineup:
Schwratz - O'Rielly - Tarasenko
Heinen - Bozak - Perron
Sanford - Sundqvist - Kyrou
Backes - JFK - Steen.

20 Jan 2019 22:36:51
Blues give: Tarasenko

Bruins give 2019 1st, Heinen, Bjork, Donato, 3rd 2020

Bruins get a young (27) solid 2nd line player to play with DeBrusk and Krejci

Blues get two solid young option players for 2nd / 3rd line and one player who's good but could be better ( Bjork ) and a 2020 3rd to hopefully round it all out and obviously blues want a first bruins have given their first below so it's not new ground for them

20 Jan 2019 23:23:21
If Tarasenko goes to Boston, which is unlikely, Debrusk is the main piece heading back, not Heinen imo.

It'll probably be centered around Debrusk + Carlo + Bjork + 1st + something else, imo.

If he does get traded, it'll be a better return than what Kessel got due to the age imo. I don't know if Boston's the right fit for another star though, I think Brayden Schenn works as a better option for them.

20 Jan 2019 23:47:49
This package does not give the Blues enough to trade a player like Tarasenko. Heinen, Bjork and Donato are young but not that great and may be 3rd line players at best, while the 1st would be in the high 20's.

12 Jan 2019 16:20:02
Boston: Ryan Donato, 2nd round pick

St. Louis: Brayden Schenn

NY Rangers: Mats Zuccarello

Colorado: Tyson Jost/(Alexander Kerfoot), Nikita Zadorov

NY Rangers: Mats Zuccarello

Carolina: 1st- and 3rd round pick

12 Jan 2019 18:08:32
Any trade that involves schenn, tarasenko, parayko, petro, will involve 1st 2019 pick.

12 Jan 2019 20:21:35
Way to much for Zucharello.

12 Jan 2019 20:29:37
My understanding is that Donato is a fairly highly rated prospect player. I was just reading something about him in an article the other day. The author of the article seemed to think Donato has some real potential.

With so many quality players available this year at the deadline, deterioration in time value until end of contract, and a dip in performance this year, I have a hard time seeing Schenn bring 2x1st back to Blues. You never know, there might be a team that thinks Schenn is the “must have” piece they need to win the cup. I have no idea what Schenn will go for obviously. He gets what someone is willing to pay. But at this point, I have a hard time seeing Blues.
