Toronto Trades

Ottawa Trades
ANilsson (UFA)
2nd Round Pick 2019 (Florida's Pick)

Ottawa then buys out Marleau and Marleau resigns in Toronto for a 1 million one year deal, similar trade Washington did Trading Orpik to Colorado and his buyout and resign in Washington.
Clears Cap Space for the Leafs and gives Ottawa some assets.
ANilsson would also be a perfect backup to FAndersen but they will need to resign him being a UFA.

Thoughts ?

22 May 2019 00:40:59
pretty sure they fixed that loophole after the orpik trade happened? and i'd imagine ottawa would just use marleau to get to cap floor and have him as mentor to the kids.

22 May 2019 02:01:27
The loophole has been fixed and Marleau won’t waive for Ottawa. He’ll 100% be a Leaf next year with his full salary counting against the cap.

22 May 2019 04:17:26
Marleau has a no mouvement clause he won't waive for ottawa.

22 May 2019 10:26:47
Lol, zaitsev is a huge dump on top you add Marleau. Hahaha. And want a second in return for that crap.

22 May 2019 18:26:09
Marleau will nix this trade.

23 May 2019 03:50:28
Two cap dumps, a fourth line center who is not very good, and a backup goalie who is not very good, for a 2nd round draft pick and a backup goalie who is better than the crappy backup goalie named Sparks? I do not think this is a good trade for Ottawa. No, they will not accept this trade. Toronto can keep all those guys that do nothing to make Ottawa a better team.

20 May 2019 18:01:54
Colorado has tons of cap space and may as well use it. Edmonton has 3 terrible contacts and with this trade they rid 2 of the 3.

Colorado- Shane Bowers And 16th overall

Edmonton- Jesse Puljujarvi, Andrei Sekera, Kris Russel And 8th overall

Colorado: take on two bad contracts but have the space to take them on. They move up 8 spots to select a better prospect Vasili Podkolzin with selecting would be a great option as he is a top 3 talent but is under contract in Russia for 2 years. With the 4th overall they draft Byram or Turcotte. Puljujarvi could excel with a change of scenery.

Edmonton: they free over 10 million in cap space. Puljujarvi isn't progressing well in Edmonton and Shane Bowers ( 1st rd pick in 2017 ) could do good in Edmonton. The also replace there pick with 16th overall where they can draft a defence man.

20 May 2019 14:18:56
Why would Colorado do that when they can use their cap space and go for somebody like panarin or skinner.

21 May 2019 14:17:31

Russell's contract isn't terrible.
He is overpaid, yes, but he's still a solid top 4 that will be a big difference to your PK (3rd in the entire NHL for Blocked Shots)

Oilers 100% won't trade Sekera now as his value is at his lowest and he looked good when he came back. If he is traded, it would be at the deadline or next years draft when he has some value.

Doesn't make sense for Colorado to take on Russell's and Sekera's contracts when they are building a young team. They could get pretty much what Sekera and Russell offer to a team for cheaper. Also, they don't need to have the 8th overall pick as they are already in the top 5.

Also, explain as to why Shane Bowers ''could do good in Edmonton''. I think you just know he's a prospect and threw him in without knowing anything about him. Shane Bowers is a centre (Edmonton has their centres locked up with (McD, Drai, RHN) and not really progressing in the NCAA.

21 May 2019 14:21:32
Edmonton doesn't touch this imo. Bowers isn't doing well. Edmonton aren't a contending team and have time to let sekera's and russel's contract run out.

21 May 2019 20:30:20
Actually TyBa4 funny story I’ve been on the ice with Shane Bowers 4 years ago at AGA ( Atlantic Goaltending Academy) he was one of the shooters there I actually shot a puck and accidentally hit him in the face. He freaked out and got kicked off the ice.

18 May 2019 20:09:38
to LA

to Colorado
Martinez (1M retained)

19 May 2019 00:32:23
But why would Colorado do this? I do not think they need right defenseman. They have oh so many already. And Bowers is very good prospect. Avalanche are still rebuilding themselves, yes? They need secondary scoring, not another defenseman. I do not think Colorado will make this trade.

19 May 2019 09:44:51
zamboni, martinez is LHD.

18 May 2019 16:33:37
To MTL : 4th overall pick

To Colorado : 15th overall pick + Jonathan Drouin

Drouin reunite with Nathan Mackinnon + Gabriel Landeskog shuffle down to the second line beside Kerfoot + Colorado draft Arthur Kaliyev (almost NHL ready) with the 15th overall pick.

Toward the end of next season, Colorado top 6 could be :

Drouin - Mackinnon - Rantanen
Landeskog - Kerfoot - Kaliyev

MTL gets a good LHD (Byram)

18 May 2019 17:13:16
Drouin Dosent move them up that far maybe up to 8th but not 4th.

18 May 2019 19:57:27
I tried that but with Puljujarvi VB and I don’t think people liked it. Lol but Montreal would have a good chance for Byram so I think they’d do it. And Colorado needs to get deeper up front and they have a good D core so I think it works.

18 May 2019 20:17:05
@ Ebsolutely Yeah. Personally, I think it's a win-win situation for both team. I wouldn't mind to add Phil Danault as an extra piece. I think Ryan Poehling is 100% NHL ready to play on the 3rd line (Domi and Kotka centering the first 2 lines)

18 May 2019 20:21:03
Yah I just don’t think Drouin is enough to move them to a top 5 pick.

19 May 2019 00:53:44
Drouin is such very good player. He should be in Edmonton. We can use him. Maybe Colorado does make this trade. They made playoffs this year. They might want Drouin rather than wait for prospect to develop.

19 May 2019 20:18:47
wow that's an absolute STEAL if colorado made that, but that's extremely foolish for montreal to make. there is 0% that 4th pick carries more value than drouin + 15th. I know you think Byram will be available at 4 as you stated, but he won't be available. he's pretty much guarenteed to go to chicago unless they take a forward, which is unlikely when you have a dman with this much potential there.

17 May 2019 16:25:45
winnipeg trades trouba and 2020 first rounder
colorado trades zadorov and 2019 first round pick from ottawa.

17 May 2019 17:15:47
I don't think Colorado is going to move that pick.

17 May 2019 17:25:37
I don't think the Jets would make this trade as they would want a center with a draft pick and don't want to give up another 1st round pick.

17 May 2019 19:01:24
This trade comes down to a 1st-pairing D-man for, arguably, the worst D-man on the Colorado Snowfalls. Furthermore, the Jets already have a terrible Russian blueliner. How many crummy commies does one team need? Maybe the trade could be made 3-way and the Jets can get Zaitsev, too (then we would have to call our D-corps 'Red-liners')

17 May 2019 19:57:00
Trouba is so very good. I do not think Winnipeg should make this trade. They should keep Trouba. Jets do not want a draft pick. They want to win now. It is so very much a chance to trade such very good player like the Trouba for a draft pick and a much slower and not good defenseman.

17 May 2019 20:24:12
Trouba for a late 1st, roster player for 3rd line and a okay prospect calling it now I’ll say I told you so.

17 May 2019 20:55:03
I don't agree the trade is trouba for zadarov, it is also to move from drafting mid 20s next year to 4 this year. I still don't think Winnipeg does this, but it's not d for d swap.

Maybe if they feel they can get an nhl ready c in the draft.

17 May 2019 22:25:14
I agree with the first Noel.

12 May 2019 20:37:46
Flames Trade: Johnny Gaudreau, Garnet Hathaway
Avalanche Trade: Nathan MacKinnon.

13 May 2019 10:12:45
That's not close. McKinnon is way better than gaudreau so more from Calgary easy. But why Colorado does that in the first place?

13 May 2019 13:39:39
Not even close for Mackinnon.

14 May 2019 01:15:01
why would the avalanche ever do this.

09 May 2019 18:01:47
Oilers Trades.

EDM: Sutter, Leivo, 2019 1st rp (10th overall)
VAN: Lucic, ($1,500,000 retained)
Russell, 2019 1st rp (8th overall)

EDM: Boedker, 2019 1st rp (CBJ)
OTT: Manning, 2019 1st rp (VAN-10th overall)

EDM: Parayko
STL: Puljujärvi, Benning, Rattie, 2020 2nd rp

EDM: Kapanen, Brown, 2019 4th rp
TOR: Larsson, Khaira

EDM: Barrie
COL: Sekera, Bear, Gambardella

Then Sign;
McElhinney - 2yrs @ $2M per

09 May 2019 18:13:31
I missed additional info on the last trade;
EDM: Barrie
COL: Sekera, Bear, Gambardella,
** Conditional Pick (2020 1st rp if Barrie re-signs or it's a 2021 2nd rp if he doesn't)

09 May 2019 19:15:25
The three that stick out for me are 2,3 and 5. No way from Edmonton that pick has a lot of value. No from St. Louis and no from Colorado.

09 May 2019 20:35:44
Huge Edmonton fan eh? 1st deal is absolutely atrocious Lucic is is unmovable unless 50% retained. But honestly I don’t mind the leafs trade.

09 May 2019 22:33:34
I'd say Russell and Sutter are about even, that makes Lucic and 8 for Leivo and 10. Realistically, I'd think Lucic would drop you back to about 20 in the draft, so I'd think that's a no from Vancouver. Again, I think Eriksson-Lucic is a much closer deal between Van/ Edm.

The Ottawa deal is pretty brutal, dumping Manning isn't worth that, considering Boedker is pretty much a cap dump himself. Definite no from Edmonton.

I don't think that St. Louis deal happens. Its basically Pulj for Parayko. The rest are spares/ scraps, so its realistically a nodice at all from STL.

The Toronto one is intriguing as a Leaf fan, and I've seen rumors of Brown/ Khaira swaps and Kapanen/ Larsson swaps. I don't mind tbh.

The Barrie one is essentially a conditional pick and some pieces for Barrie, cause as much as Bear is solid, Sekera is a pretty big contract dump, so he'd negate a chunk of Bears value. So no from COL imo.

10 May 2019 02:55:56
I can’t even comment on this oh boy lol.

11 May 2019 02:14:24
So many very good trades. We must make all these trades. Except #4. #4 is not good trade for Edmonton. Larsson is very good player. Yes. He is so much worth more than Kapanen.

11 May 2019 18:25:39
Stl asks you politely to lose there number. God awefull trade prop. Bad hips pool party isn't worth parayko skates.

11 May 2019 19:53:56
ottawa gladly accepts! if manning doesn't Crack the top 6, put him on waivers. still would be a great deal for the sens lol.

07 May 2019 21:29:10
vancouver trades elias petterson and a 3rd to avalanche for nathan mckinnon and a 7th

07 May 2019 22:26:38
Ohh my I love Pettersson definitely one of my favourite players but Vancover would be adding not Colorado Nathen Mackinnon is on way to good of a contract to be traded for anything really. I’d give anyone on the leafs for him. 5.5 mil for a 100 point player. Ridiculous.

07 May 2019 22:47:42
MacKinnon is a top 5 player in the game. he's pretty untouchable. and that contract is the best in the NHL.

07 May 2019 23:17:05
mackinnon is so so so so untouchable its not funny hahah even for petterson. agree with vb and sosa.

08 May 2019 01:00:23
In reality, factoring in contracts, age and everything, MAYBE apart from McDavid, MacKinnons the best value in the game by a mile. You can't go wrong with his contract, production and youth. Pettersons elite, but I don’t think anything comes close to prying MacKinnon out of Colorado tbh.

07 May 2019 21:27:34
Draft Day Trade Proposal.

Colorado Trades
1st Round Pick 2019 (16th Overall)

Toronto Trades
4th Round Pick 2019 (Blues Pick)

Thoughts ?

07 May 2019 23:17:26
wtf man.

08 May 2019 05:24:30
Your trades are getting more lopsided with each passing one lol.

08 May 2019 17:21:10
Not enough from the Leafs.

08 May 2019 23:48:09
I'd think colorado could do better
Barrie is probably worth brown and kadri or more. That leaves zaitsev and a 4th for a 1st which will never happen. Just my opinion.

25 Apr 2019 22:47:53
RFA offer sheet
Marner 6yrs x 8.9M

To Leafs
4 first rounders as per RFA offersheet terms.

Colorado has the cap space and young talent in the system to absorb the 4 firsts loss. Leafs can't match the offer under current cap restraints and gets young cost efficient ELC's to round out the roster for the next 4 years.

26 Apr 2019 02:03:48
Isn't the compensation for 4 1st picks on a offer sheet only if it's over 10.148 million aav. I believe that offer would get you 2 1st a 2nd and a3 Rd and believe me the leafs would match that and also marner would never sign that anyway.

26 Apr 2019 02:27:26
So, you’re plan is to offer Marner a below market value contract and hope he signs it?

If the Avs did offer that and Marner accepted, the Leafs would match it before the ink dried and probably send you a gift basket for getting them such a great deal.

26 Apr 2019 02:51:02
Yes they can match. And he will be getting more than that.

26 Apr 2019 03:36:11
Why not? They have 28 million in cap space.

26 Apr 2019 04:15:06
I think it would be higher than that for the leafs not to match. Toronto will lose a player or 2 this year but not at that price.

26 Apr 2019 05:09:26
What's Mathews getting? can't see why Marner would sign any less than him. he is the better player.

26 Apr 2019 06:40:45
Vbb unless the cap goes to about 95 mil the leafs don't have 28 mil in cap space.

26 Apr 2019 11:01:09
Go look if Horton is put on LTIR they do.

26 Apr 2019 18:06:46
Toronto has projected 25 mil in cap space for 20-21 season, but they have 9 players on contract including a goalie.

27 Apr 2019 00:11:31
They have between 14 and 15 million in space with 17 players signed when Horton comes off the books at least that's what the go to source for cap info has them listed at. If marner gets 11 million of that it doesn't leave much for kapanen and Johnson and the 3 others they need to sign.

27 Apr 2019 04:48:26
Even with Horton's ltir, leafs got to be under the salary cap including horton at the start of the season. They can make trades after that but his cap counts day 1 of the season.

29 Apr 2019 01:53:42
Mr Habby. You are so very smart, yes. You must know the compensation is based on five year average. So if Marner gets 6 years at 8.9, for a five year term is over (8.9x6)/ 5=$10.68M. So is 4 first round picks yes.

Mr. Shooter McGee must know Hortons contract is permanent LTIR and does not ever count towards cap.

21 Apr 2019 01:56:25
Colorado Trades
6th Round Pick 2019

Toronto Trades
4th Round Pick 2019 (Blues Pick)

Thoughts ?

21 Apr 2019 21:45:03
No good thoughts.

15 Apr 2019 15:09:41
Draft Day Trade.

Colorado Trades
1st Round Pick 2019 (16th Overall)

Toronto Trades
4th Round Pick 2019 (Blues Pick)

Colorado will be looking for a 2nd Line Centre and Kadri fits the bill, they also have the Cap Space to take on the extra 3.5 million with Zaitsev added in the Deal.

Toronto gets that Top RHanded shooting Defenceman, saves 3.5 million to help in there resignings and gets there 1st Round Pick back from the Muzzin Trade.

Thoughts ?

15 Apr 2019 18:09:46
Colarado says no. Even if you remove Zaitsev and drop the 1st to a 2nd its closer but don't think they would do it.

15 Apr 2019 19:07:27
This is about as bad as it gets the aves don’t trade Barrie straight up for kadri for sure they don’t give up a 1st and take back a cap dump.

15 Apr 2019 20:19:24
Jeez, where does this reductions value for Kadri come from? He wouldn’t get you Barrie straight up let alone a first AND Colorado taking on Zaitsev.

15 Apr 2019 20:44:22
I think Kadri for Barrie is an even trade taking out team needs. Kadri would be the 2 C in Colorado.

15 Apr 2019 21:43:37
Rumour has it that Colorado is picking 4th and could very well be picking a centre, maybe Dozens, Dach or Zegras.
Not sure many teams want a headache like Kadri.

16 Apr 2019 00:23:41
@vbb let's just say for arguments sake he's better then soderberg or kerfoot which I don't think but why would Colorado trade their number 1 dman for such a slight improvement ( if any)?

16 Apr 2019 11:09:46
Lol what Sodenburg in Kefoot are trash. Like Lucic level trash. Kadri is a 30 goal scorer who is playing shut down role because he’s also great defensively. He was Toronto’s best player in game 2 even though he took a stupid penalty. Leafs will keep Kadri as he is the best 3C in the game. Did you also ignore the fact that I said “ taking out team needs. “.

16 Apr 2019 14:37:20
First off kadri was a 30 goal scorer and where are the stats that suggest soderberg or kerfoot are lucic level?

16 Apr 2019 14:43:33
I'm pretty sure both of them had seasons at least equal to your glorified Matt cooke.

16 Apr 2019 15:30:35
Players VBB has added to Lucic level: Soderberg, Kerfoot, Faulk. are there any other recent ones?

16 Apr 2019 20:49:10
Kadri had two more points than Kerfoot this season… yet ones a “30 goal scorer” and the other is “trash”. Barrie is better offensively than Kadri. They’d play him 2C before they make a 1 for 1 trade for Kadri. Lol.

17 Apr 2019 01:08:01
Jamie Benn also had a bad season? Is Barrie worth more then Benn? 1 bad season dosent define a player.

17 Apr 2019 07:01:55
When both Barrie and Kadri are at there best they put up similar offensive numbers. So how’s that just one season?
Kadri has been trending down for 3 seasons now, so what’s his norm? Maybe he’s just a good 50 point guy. Which Kerfoot will probably be.

17 Apr 2019 15:36:33
Is kadri anywhere close to Jamie Benn?

17 Apr 2019 19:54:30
Not sure where you check your stats Ebs. Does tending down for 3 seasons mean career bests and back to back 32 goal seasons? I’ll never defend some of Kadri’s actions but he’s a top 2 center on half the teams in the league.

17 Apr 2019 20:15:34
Stats trending downwords?

17 Apr 2019 20:15:56
Get back to me when Barrie scores 30.

17 Apr 2019 23:15:50
Trending down as in 61, 55 then a 44 point season. I agree with you Leafs17. I just think a 55+ point RD has more value than a second line center.
Get back to me when Kadri gets 45 assist? Does it need to be pointed out forwards typically get more goals than D?

18 Apr 2019 03:38:40
Trending down 61 pts to 55 pts to 44 pts it's certainly not trending up. Lol.

18 Apr 2019 06:28:09
He's a 3rd line centre on most teams in the league just like he is in toronto.

18 Apr 2019 10:55:31
Well he’s a 1c in Montreal. There’s only a handful of teams at most teams where he’d be a 3 C Toronto, New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Edmonton, Washington, San Jose And Florida are the only ones and his decrease in points totals are due to a decrease of playing time. He’s playing behind two of the best players in the game. He’s a 70 point player in a 1c position.

18 Apr 2019 14:06:24
No actually he's a number 3 in Montreal too. He had years of opportunities with his only competition being Tyler bozak and he couldn't become a number 1 centre in Toronto so I doubt he be a number 1 on any team in the league.

18 Apr 2019 16:44:51
You can add Boston, Chicago, Philly if Giroux is playing C, Vegas, Winnipeg with Hayes, Tampa. And you can argue Calgary, Nashville and probably a few other teams.

18 Apr 2019 22:14:59
Aighht, so because Kadri does what he did he's apperantky a 3rd liner now? His numbers are only down this year because of Tavares and his concussion. He was on pace for 50 despite a terrible shooting% before his injury. just because of his idiotic decisions doesn't mean he's suddenly a 3C on montreal (definetely not, lol) l Hayes is certainly not better, Nashville has what Turris, he had a rotten season and Granlunds a winger; Kadris better than Johnson considering they play Point on the wing, i'd say Statsny&Kadri are even, Stastneys just having an excellent postseason, Krejci has one good year out of nowhere and he's suddenly better?

I get Kadri did something idiotic. And it was extremely idiotic, mind it. But don't discredit him. Two back to back thirty goal years and he still puts up pro-rated 50 points on the 3rd line with an old Marleau and Nylander who everyones been discrediting. he's a 2L on most teams, and its not much of an argument.

19 Apr 2019 02:53:52
Don’t think anyone said he was a 3rd liner actually. But yeah he would play 3C on a lot of teams. Nuge occasionally plays 3C and he’s definitely not one.

I thought Point centred Kucherov? Well I don’t really think Kadri would be playing ahead of Krejci and his 73 points. And I was thinking Granlund was playing center.

19 Apr 2019 03:23:01
Ok so who do Montreal move to make room for Kadri? Domi? Not a chance. daneault? nope he's better too. Kotkaniemi is going nowhere so maybe Kadri could hold down the 4th line centre spot.

19 Apr 2019 22:59:14
Trending downward from career bests, yes. Back to back 32 goal seasons and he has less talent to play with on the 3rd line this year. 4th line is pretty funny in Montreal though habby. Danault has one good season with 12 goals and he’s better too? If you want to talk about defensive skills, Kadri has shut down some of the best.

19 Apr 2019 23:27:02
Daneult has shut down some of the best too. What's your point?

20 Apr 2019 16:24:15
My point is you saying Danault is better than Kadri is laughable. Wearing red and blue doesn’t make a player better. If Kadri would be 4th line center in Montreal, you guys have the best center depth in the league. A great goalie, coach and the best GM, I don’t understand why they’re golfing.

20 Apr 2019 16:44:59
Since 2012-13 when he was near a point per game, Kadri has been solid. Danault had one good year.

20 Apr 2019 20:01:43
Daneult was injured last year had a decent season before that playing with far less talent then Kadri or getting the power play time he does. This year daneult centered one of the top two way lines in the league And with all that Toronto talent I don't understand how they were only 4 pts ahead of Montreal and were close enough to golf season that guys like you went and hid for 3 weeks. daneult is better 5 on 5 and it isn't even close. Kadri benefited from a good Toronto power play and got 24 of his goals there during his 2 30 goal seasons. Noticed he didn't score near that amount this season when Tavares took some of his pp time?

20 Apr 2019 22:54:10
You are right, I don’t know what I was thinking. Kadri is a 4th liner in Montreal. I don’t know what talent you’re talking about in Toronto. They don’t have a guy like Danault. Also, some of us have a life beyond talking to strangers on the internet, while others lead the post/ reply list. I’m sorry I was hiding, lol.

21 Apr 2019 01:36:56
Feel free to leave again any time.

21 Apr 2019 01:39:58
You were one of the busiest posters on here when the leafs were playing well but then you mysteriously get a life when they sucked down the stretch lol. Vbb was the only leaf fan who was anywhere to be found on here.

21 Apr 2019 06:00:48
I rarely post habby and I only reply when I think I know what I’m talking about. I don’t know everything, not like yourself.

21 Apr 2019 16:53:42
Ok yes I've noticed that. But not knowing what your talking about hasn't stopped you from continuing to post on this thread.

22 Apr 2019 04:44:46
Kadri is better than Danault. I’ll let you have the last word now. I know what that means to you.

22 Apr 2019 14:16:47
Ok cause it would be a shame for this thread to end on such a biased lie.

02 Apr 2019 04:24:06
A few trades and changes to the oilers that might help! Oilers need to clear cap space.

Oilers: puljujarvi + Lucic (possibly add 3rd round pick or B Prospect)
Sens: Pageau (Sens need to get to the cap + puljujarvi is a good prospect for a rebuilding team. Also, Sens can retain 50% of Lucic’s salary and trade him to a team that needs toughness like Pitts or Canes or other team that need a defender against Tom Wilson)

Oilers: Benning
Leafs: Brown

Oilers: 1st Rd + Russel
Habs: 1st Rd + Shaw (Shaw has one extra season signed to + Oilers 1st is higher most likely)

Oilers: 1st from Habs + Bear
Avs: Barrie

Resign: Chaison 2m x 2 yrs

Sign Free Agent: Carr or Pirri (Vegas)
Mezark or Nilsson

Line Up:
Drai (8.5) - McDavid (12.5) - Kassian (2)
Brown (2) - RNH (6) - Chaison (2)
Ganger (3) - Pageau (3) - Shaw (3)
Khaira (1) - Brodziak (1) - Carr (2)
Cave (700) - Currie (700)

Klefbom (4) - Larson (4)
Nurse (3) - Barrie (5.5)
Sekera (5.5) - Jones (650)
Gravel (700)

Koskinen (4.5)
Mazerk (2)

Shy of $80 m which leaves 3 m room for a trade during season if needed.

Some players here can play up and down the lineup depending on who is hot or not.

Every trade is good except the colorado one. Colorado isn't in rebuild mode and if they were Barrie would get more

02 Apr 2019 14:17:26
Tbh it really depends on how high EDM 1st is for MTL to do that trade as Shaw has rebounded and is fitting in nicely and is around a pace of 60 points if he played the whole season. Yes I agree that’s not what’s expected from him but is it unreasonable to expect 40? Plus he plays with grit and heart. While Russel is basically another Alzner. And habs have enough of those 5-7 D don’t need one for 4 mil per year.

02 Apr 2019 15:19:25
Who is Mazerk? Is that supposed to be Mrazek?

02 Apr 2019 16:45:39
Not a chance Oil move back in the 1st to go from Russell to Shaw.

02 Apr 2019 17:39:19
Oilers are not moving their 2019 1st.

02 Apr 2019 18:42:11
Leafs said no to Brown for Benning + Khaira, so Benning alone does not get Brown, no. Is no good trade.

Why Oiler’s want Barrie? He’s free agent, yes? We must needs just players to stay. No rentals. Can we afford to sign Barrie next year? I dong think so.

02 Apr 2019 21:44:48
I have a hard time believing the Leafs turned down Benning and Khaira for Brown. Those are two depth guys for the Oilers that actually have value IMO. There both young, physical and inexpensive.

02 Apr 2019 22:05:19
Bro there is no way Leafs turned down both Khaira and Benning. The actual offer was Brown for Benning, but Toronto was interested in Khaira instead. As per TSN twitter.

03 Apr 2019 16:24:39
how does that help the oilers you still got bottom 6 players playing on the 2nd line with rnh.

04 Apr 2019 03:54:25
I did not make this up, no. I am not so smart to make this up. Benning plus Khaira or Kassian. Toronto says no. I read it several times. LWOH.

05 Apr 2019 16:54:49
I just don’t think there’s anyway they’d say no to Benning and Kassian. Kassian would be awesome for the leafs. Love him as a player.

05 Apr 2019 22:20:44

They probably would say no, not bc value, but because of cap. If we’re trading Brown, we want next to no salary coming back, not more, even if the value is good.

Canucks trade: Baertschi, Goldobin, 2nd round pick 2020

Avalanche trade: Timmins, andrighetto

If Canucks could do something to get timmins... and Byram

Hughes Timmins
Byram Woo
Juolevi Stetcher

Would be a great D core

26 Mar 2019 02:27:59
That’ll be a great d core in like 5 years when they are all proven dmen yup. As for the trade I can’t see Colorado accepting that.

26 Mar 2019 17:38:54
Colorado needs D I don't see them trading Timmons.

26 Mar 2019 20:47:27
Barrie zadorov girard Makar.

28 Mar 2019 11:23:25
Colorado hangs up.

28 Mar 2019 16:13:09
I don’t like it from Van. Beartschi can be a 60 point 2nd liner EASY if he can stay healthy, we need Seconds and Goldy is whatever. Anyways, I personally wouldn’t give up Bear and a Second for Timmons and Andri.

28 Mar 2019 23:36:47
Baertschi has never got more than 40 points in his CAREER and has never played more than 70 games lol how does he get 60 easily even if he's healthy?

23 Feb 2019 18:58:32
Sounds strange, but I am hearing Colorado Avalanche and Florida Panthers are in trade talks right now. Very interesting especially with Florida going to be in Colorado tomorrow and Monday at the trade deadline.

The rumor I am hearing is Colorado is going all in for a playoff push. Colorado might get Mike Hoffman, Mark Pysyk and James Reimer. Florida is predicted to get Tyson Jost, Nikita Zadorov and Phillipp Grubauer.

Draft picks might be in the mix as well. Unknown for sure. But Joe Sakic and Dale Tallon are expected to meet tomorrow in Denver. Going to be juicy.

23 Feb 2019 19:20:52
You have no idea man.

23 Feb 2019 23:04:17
I read Hoffman and brassard are sitting out so getting close but that guy said it was with nyip.

24 Feb 2019 20:36:49
Hoffman is the best player here. Does that mean Colorado wins? I don’t think Colorado is giving up on Jost quite yet, though Zadorov is on the block.

17 Feb 2019 05:46:46
Edmonton trades RNH to Avalanche for Jost and Barrie

Colorado needs more offensive depth. Edmonton wants a puck moving defenseman. Jost gives us a forward back to replace RNH. Still young with lots of potential.

17 Feb 2019 06:23:59
Damn that’d be great but like jeez losing Nuge leaves such a huge hole it’s tough but that’s a really good offer for Nuge I don’t think Colorado would be too quick to even do that either.

17 Feb 2019 20:57:59
Thanks McJesus. I’m still pretty new at this. I know trading RNH depletes our own scoring depth, but we don’t really have any good trade pieces. We drafted too many busts.

18 Feb 2019 00:52:25
That’d be a good trade for oilers. Jost will be a very good scoring forward and Barrie is what the oilers have been after for the last year or so. Honestly I think it’s too much from Colorado, given jost’ age and ceiling I think they (col) should hang on to him, if they are to trade him I think they’d want someone who is a bit younger and more of an offensive threat than Hopkins. Nothing against Hopkins but if scoring is what Colorado is after than I think jost will be a better scorer than Hopkins and with maker and Timmins making the team next year I don’t think this trade will make them better.

18 Feb 2019 09:14:15
No from Colorado the fact you think this is even clost Mcjesus it shows your true biased.

20 Feb 2019 14:52:15
dont trade jost for rnh who doing nothing with offensive team. and i think barrie will stay avs for long time.

16 Feb 2019 02:26:16
Los Angles Kings Trade:
Ilya Kovalchuk (LW - [25% Retention] 4.70 Million x 3 Years)

Colorado Avalanche Trade:
Matt Nieto (LW - 1.95 Million x 2 Years)
Nicolas Meloche (D - 0.85 Million x 2 Years)
Conditional 2019 3rd Round Draft Pick [Condition: Pick is only transferred if Colorado qualifies for the 2019 Playoffs]

- Los Angeles gets value for Kovalchuk now, before he diminishes on the fading team. Nieto is a viable piece who could be traded in the future of the rebuild, and Meloche is a nice piece (former second rounder) .
- Colorado doesn’t give up too much to acquire a solid piece that really helps their depth. Beyond Rantanen/ MacK/ Landy, there isn’t much support, and they only take on appx. an extra 3 million in cap, which they can afford.

16 Feb 2019 14:44:50
I’d love to see Kovy in a New Jersey but I think he’d excel more in the East.

16 Feb 2019 21:22:30
Avalanche are out of playoffs. They are pursuing youth movement. I doubt they want old man Kovalchuk. If he couldn’t help LA playing with Kopitar and Carter, I fail to see him doing anything in Colorado playing with guys a lot less talented.

Seems like an overpayment. Is Barrie really that much better than Muzzin? Same term on the contract, and we got Muzzin for a 1st and a couple b-prospects.

Trade option 1:

NYR: Namestikov + Vesey


COL: Shane Bowers + JT Compher


NYR: Namestikov


PIT: Hallander

09 Feb 2019 18:13:30
I can see the penguins trade happening, fair deal imo.

09 Feb 2019 23:03:31
Unless I’m missing something, then Bowers is still in Ottawa, so the first trade isn’t going to happen. The second trade could be a possibility if Penguins can afford it. Although Namestnikov does have an extra year on his contract still, so he’s not a true rental. Penguins might pass if they can’t afford to keep him next season. Look for a pending free agent instead.

10 Feb 2019 10:19:16
Bowers was part of the duchene deal, so he is in Colorado's system.

What about Rust and Hallander?

10 Feb 2019 15:25:54
Zamboni, Bowers was traded last year in the Duchene trade to Colorado.

Trade Breakdown

09 Feb 2019 01:10:51
Johnson is pretty old and costs too much. If you think Zaitsev is overpaid, then Johnson is even more so. Now he’s over 30 could decline sharply. That’s $6M looks like slight overpayment now. In five years it will be a boat anchor.
