22 May 2019 05:12:09
EDM - Lucic (2M retained), 2019 1st (8th)
NYR - Shattenkirk (1M retained), 2019 1st (20th)

Each team swaps bad contracts, obviously Lucic is way worse. The Rangers move up 12 spots into the top 10.

I think if Lucic has salary retained he could be flipped for a mid pick. Not sure exactly sure how much the Oilers would need to retain and how much New York would to flip him.

22 May 2019 13:52:49
Good trade man.

22 May 2019 15:53:26
interesting ebs nice.

22 May 2019 16:36:48
You messing with me VB? 😱.

22 May 2019 17:17:07
Not bad to be honest. Tough pill to swallow with Lucic and his term but for the next two years he is making 1.6 less giving a bit more of room. I would do it as a Ranger fan.

22 May 2019 18:24:14
This has the makings of a good trade, but I don't think Edmonton would be wise to give up #8 pick to do it though. Perhaps 2019 2nd and 3rd / 2 seconds might make it a done deal.

22 May 2019 20:26:33
You’re crazy if you think a couple 2nd round picks will make a team take Lucic.

22 May 2019 22:06:04
I think cut the retention from Shattenkirk and its good tbh.

Cause Shatty is still a decent enough player. Just not worth his 6.5M, but worth more than Lucic.

Lucic at 4M + #8 for #20 is fair, Shatty isn't negative value, he's just overpaid.

22 May 2019 23:28:56
I think it’s good for both teams even with retained salary on Shattenkurk. Vasili Podkolzin would be an huge add to the rangers.

23 May 2019 00:15:17
I like it alot.

23 May 2019 02:13:42
I’m not really getting your argument TTS. If they both had good contracts then it would be a no way from Edmonton. But neither of them do.
Lucic at 4M doesn’t have that much negative value IMO. At 3M I’d say he actually has decent value as a bottom 6 physical veteran cup winner.
If Shattenkirk is over paid then I’d say he actually does have negative value, just not as much as Lucic.

23 May 2019 03:21:04
Is so very original. But can we afford this? With $2M retained on Lucic plus Shattenkirk at $5.75-$6.75, depending if retention, is makes now $7.75-$8.75 for two years for Shattenkirk. And we drop so many places in the draft.

I do not think is such good trade.

21 May 2019 02:05:25
Edm: Ryan Hopkins

Det: Anthony mantha

Edmonton gets a goal scorer. Cheaper cap hit.
Det pays a little more cap for a center position player

21 May 2019 04:26:19
I jus read about this. hmm. could be good for Oliers. would like to see other pieces involved, maybe some d prospects from Edmonton and a more established Dman coming back.?

21 May 2019 04:43:36
From edmonton sosa?? Rnh has proven more.

21 May 2019 07:05:18
Well, I dunno. could Edmonton maybe trade some of their promising young D. maybe Bear? Bring back some some help got now. but . then again, who really does Detroit have that would be affordable and and a good fit .
Yes. RNH has proven more., I think Mantha has 40 goal potential., deffinetley 30 to 35. this is an interesting deal. one is more proven. one has more potential and starting to be a good player.

21 May 2019 14:22:25
I guess Mantha could be a late bloomer but it’s not like he’s some kid right outta the draft anymore, he’s 25 around when next season starts. He’s only a year younger than Nuge. In 2 full seasons he’s but up 24 and 25 goals and 48 points. Right now Nuge appears to be better on both sides of the puck and plays a more valuable position. Maybe 1 for 1 if Edmonton thinks Mantha is a late bloomer and to fit positional needs but last time Edmonton made a trade like that was Hall for Larsson and people are still making fun of them for it.

21 May 2019 15:28:22
I didn't realize he was already 25.wow time flies. I think Detroit is going to have to add then. Maybe a prospect or pick. as RNH is the better player.

21 May 2019 22:40:22
detroit needs to add. mantha alone has the only benefit of he has lower cap hit, other than that he doesn't improve oilers at all.

21 May 2019 23:39:32
If anything detroit is adding, doesn't matter on the "potential" at all, nuge is one year older and is superior in terms of value especially compared to Mantha. I thought about this trade the other day when i saw it and the only way i'd make it if if detroit is sending back a nhl ready prospect, rnh for mantha does not improve the oilers at all, it strictly adds a more shoot first player who is 1 year younger and makes less in salary. Not nearly close to as versatile and valuable to nuge imo.

21 May 2019 23:43:46
jbs said it really well.

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.

19 May 2019 21:34:29
No thanks on the Winnipeg trade.

19 May 2019 22:26:56
Jets wouldn't make this trade.

19 May 2019 23:30:51
I'd like to keep Danualt on Habs. he will never be a star, however he is starting to remind me of Guy Carbonneau. a really solid 2 way player, who will start to generate some Selke talk as he gains more experience. by far Bergevins best trade.

20 May 2019 04:05:42
Sosa i agree but value wise wouldn't that be enough for danault. Fills their need on defence aswell.
Brodie - Weber
Mete - Petry

20 May 2019 14:11:17
Huge no from Calgary on the leddy Trade leafs counter with Kappanen, Rights to Gardiner and a 2020 1st for Ras Andersson. He’s probably the last dman Calgary trades.

21 May 2019 21:43:03
I am a Calgary Habs fan, although I do watch many Flames games. TJ Brodie is on the decline and is now inconsistent. Not a good addition to the Habs defense.

19 May 2019 20:30:37
No comment on other trades but to much for Toffoli.

19 May 2019 21:39:04
No thanks from Winnipeg.

19 May 2019 21:50:28
WPG should definitely take that they need an Upgrade on the 2C and Nuge would be great.

19 May 2019 22:48:31
RNH is not worth Ehlers plus, as he will expect a crazy contract in 2 years that he doesn't deserve. Ehlers is signed long term on a very cap friendly contract so Let the Oilers give RNH what he wants in 2 years. Also Charoit is an UFA.

20 May 2019 01:59:12
You're joking right? RHN >> Ehlers

Ehlers scored 37 points last season, is that worth 6 million dollars per year? Not saying it's a bad contract and he will most likely bounce back to be a 55-65 point forward in his career but it's definitely not ''very cap friendly''.

Winnipeg shouldn't care about the fact that the contract is longer for Ehlers as this is your Stanley Cup window.

RHN is pretty much a 30 goal, 70+ point centre if he has the support from his wingers. Playing on the second line this season, he scored 28 goals and had 69 points.

20 May 2019 04:06:57
Islandjet, Nuge will probably get a Nylander similar contract. 6.9M @ 4-6 years. I wouldn't say a huge raise

20 May 2019 12:15:07
Well the Winnipeg Jets are an all star team of the 20 best players to ever play hockey so players like Nuge and McDavid carry no value because they’d just be sent to the AHL.

20 May 2019 15:43:26
Its not that Jet fans over value their players it just most of the trade proposals here don't make the Jets better. I believe there will be trades by the draft and we'll see what return Chevy can get.

20 May 2019 16:21:24
Ehlers “very cap friendly” but Nylander has “a terrible contract. ” Very similar numbers and age, Nylander can also play center. Nylander makes less than a million more than Ehlers. These jets fans should be banned from the site. RNH would be a very nice addition to the #2 center position. The jets have the best wingers in the league apparently, losing Ehlers should be a no brainer to get a legit #2. Little is garbage.

20 May 2019 19:51:43
Jared McCann is on the penguins, under contract. Unless their is some other guy named Jared McCann.

20 May 2019 22:11:23
Please. not even 1 shred of sensibility on any of these.

Trade 1 no go. Tofolli only has 1 year left on his contract. Edmonton needs to dump salary, not gain salary.

Trade 2 LOLOLOLOL. Can't even comment on that one. funny. No go

Trade 3 Massive overpay since Sekera alone is better than Ceci who could hold out for a lot of money as an RFA.

Trade 4 ends as soon as you started to type the first letter of RNH w/ o a #1 dman coming back.

Trade 5 Why in the world would St Louis give up Schwartz? That's just ridiculous no matter if Cousins is available at 8 or not.

Trade 6 Frolik is a terribly inconsistent player. Don't see a team like edmonton that lacks consistancy wanting a player that only plays good once every 6 games. Kovalev syndrome but at least Kovy when he decided he wanted to play. played at an elite allstar level.

Trade 7? Ok this is getting into troll world. 6th round pick really? One of the best players for his contract value last year for a 6th round pick? Please.

Trade 8 Seabrook's term is too long to consider. I am sure Edm has only 1 roster spot for a washed up old man on D ( Sekera ) If Seabrooks term was only a year or 2 the trade would have a possibility of being sensible.

20 May 2019 14:12:00
These are brutal.

21 May 2019 21:43:49
yeah that's a garbage offer for schwartz.

19 May 2019 20:16:34
EDM : Adam Larsson
CHI : Brent Seabrook, Dylan Strome, 3rd Overall Selection & John Hayden

19 May 2019 23:36:55
Way to much. also don't think Edmonton can afford this due to cap.
But, Strome is showing he may be a decent scoring 2nd line Ctr. I can see this kid hitting 70 points. I think Chicago would be wise to keep him.

20 May 2019 14:15:52
What is this looooool

Dylan Strome = Adam Larsson (imo)
also why would the Oilers take Seabrook's contract?

19 May 2019 19:01:45
A few offseason moves for the Leafs.

New Lines:




19 May 2019 23:37:31
Dont trade Kappanen.

20 May 2019 04:08:06
I actually think these are pretty good

20 May 2019 22:14:26
Line combo's you have listed are incorrect. Marner's last game as a leaf was about a month ago as he takes his RFA offersheet bucks and leaves with a grin on his face. Lucky kid.

19 May 2019 00:38:04
IMO from what I've been reading on this Mika Zibanajad is one of the most underrated figures in sports history he is a franchise player and a 1 man show similar to McDavid by carrying a terrible team on his back ( Rangers are much worse then Edmonton) Zibanajad is a 90 point player in the right situation with real line mates. Why I believe the Rangers should trade him?This is because he's 26 and by the time the rangers are good he'll be leaving his Prime. Anyway that's my rant this is my proposal.

Philly: Nolan Patrick

New York: Mika Zibanajad

Rangers - Nolan Patrick is posed to become a 2 way 1C ( hopefully a sad-mans Towes ). While Zibanajad is the much better player and Patrick May never be as good but he'll be entering his prime when Rangers are starting to compete.

Philly: Philly is starting to compete now. They have a very solid roster and Zibanajad/Coutorier as 1/2 Cs would be huge. Zibanajad would be Great between Vorchek and JVR.

19 May 2019 07:33:42
Rumour forgetting 1 important detail and that is not every team takes 10 years to do a rebuild. The Rangers can and will spend to the cap and depending on who they add and which of their prospects step into the line up this year they could easily be a playoff team next season.

19 May 2019 07:41:31
Your love for zibanajad is on the same scale as your hate for lucic lol in the sense where neither is as good or bad as you say.

19 May 2019 14:42:37
I disagree habby just look at what he produced this year compared to the rest of the team. Zib really stands out on the Rangers. Also I’m not sayings he’s even comparable to McDavid talent wise I’m saying the way he carry’s the team is similar. Also what you’re saying may be true about the rebuild to some extent but I hope we can both agree there should definitely be atleast a two year window of being a bottom 5 team Lundqvist and Staal need to go. Also they need one or two more elite pieces like Kakko/ Hughes.

19 May 2019 15:37:46
He's been a 40 or 50 point guy all his career and hit 70 last year sounds a lot like max Domi to me.

19 May 2019 15:49:57
Well VB if we are judging off of one year then fine. But in his career he’s been a good player but a franchise centre that’s funny. He has never been a point per game player in the NHL he just had a career year with 74 in 82. ( just to put in perspective Domi had 72 in 82). And this was the first year in his career he played all 82 games. He’s a good top line center but franchise is pushing your luck.

19 May 2019 17:26:09
I’m judging this as a break out year yes also Domi was playing with more talent Montreal is a better team. I don’t think Zib is as good as players like Tavares, Stamkos, Giroux, Hall, Schifele, Malkin, Mathews among others but he’s a tier below imo

He’s in the Same tier as
Benn, Monahan, Paniran, Larkin, Forsburg, Kuznetzkov

If you don’t watch the rangers a lot you may not agree but a few more 70+ point seasons will make this more commonly known.

19 May 2019 20:20:51
Zibanejad is worth a lot more than Patrick right now.
And the Rangers could be good very fast. Sign Panarin and/ or Karlsson, get Kaako/ Hughes in the draft. And they were already somewhat decent last year. Additional player development from their young guys. And they have a ton of picks. Rangers did it right, great rebuild.
This trade would be very bad for them.

22 May 2019 06:22:12
It's difficult sometimes to read things from fans that make it impossible to avoid being a little antagonistic and insulting. So I apologize. But you're lost. This is the type of perfect example of a fan that isn't aware of recent history, or what a good player is or how prospects develop etc. That's why when the GM says "rebuild" people get so confused that they don't realize the rebuild is over. They will develop young players. But the Rangers after winning the 2nd pick and trading for Fox now need to add a TOP top FA (Panarin is the only option for many reasons. But he's perfect) Has the OP planned out the depth chart and tried to figure out where the team is now. In one offseason before you even hopefully add Panarin, and hopefully trade for a legit defenseman, the team is bringing in Kakko, Kravstov, Fox, Rykov, Shestyorkin. Plus the college fas they signed. That's it. Rebuild is done. Growth is constant but they have the roster filled with every guy we want to go forward with aside from Miller and we will see who else. And the first line center was the best player and is a legit candidate for a point a game with 2 wings who can get him there. No to this. no to kreider. These are GOOD players. PRIME is not 27 to 29. It's 24-31.

18 May 2019 17:38:18
WPG: Ehlers, 2nd Round Pick 2019
EDM: Puljujärvi, 8th Overall 2019

Jets shed some salary, get a player that has had success with Laine and also move up in the draft.

Oilers get a speedy top 6 LW to play with McDavid. He's signed long term at a very reasonable cap hit.

18 May 2019 18:46:24
Would not even trade the first round pick for ehlers.

18 May 2019 19:53:26
I don't think the jets are trying to get rid of their good contracts-- those are the ones they probably would like to hold on to the most.

18 May 2019 21:16:01
Take out the 1st round pick from EDM and replace it with a 2nd round pick a conditional 3rd round (* becomes a 2nd in 2020 if Ehlers scores at least 45 pts) and take out the 2nd round pick from Winnipeg and it's much closer. Stop overestimating your players' worth.

18 May 2019 21:26:39
Zero chance of Chevy making this trade.

19 May 2019 02:34:07
Nope. This trade sets the Jets back 3 or 4 years while we wait and hope that the pick or Puljujarvi turn out as good as Ehlers is now. The Oilers would take the trade in an instant though.

19 May 2019 20:18:19
no thanks man, don't got the cap for that.

18 May 2019 13:07:15
Thoughts on this deal

Ott receives: lucid, 2019 1st (8th ovl)

Edmonton receives: pageau, 2019 3rd (pitts)

This frees up 3m in cap space, and brings in a 3rd line shut down center with great pk ability that's only 26yrs old. You keep rnh on the wing and get a 3rd that you could flip (for for connor. brown maybe)

Ottawa upgrades a 3rd rounder to a top 10 pick and uses their cap space to keep building. By the time ottawa is relevant again the 6m cap hit might be gone or the cap has gone up enough for it to be negligible.

Thoughts on this, should there be an added sweetener somewhere?

18 May 2019 19:58:16
this is the right kind of move for the senators but they probably could get an extra mid round pick or two (or just remove the 3rd fron their side)

18 May 2019 20:48:42
Almost. but EDM receives pageau and ott 1rd round 2019 and EDM add a 2nd round and and 4th round pick to get rid of Lucic, no way do they lose their first round pick this year.

19 May 2019 00:29:39
nobody wants lucic, I don't think many teams will bite even if the 8th overall is included. that's a terrible player on a terrible contract, that's Edmontons problem.

19 May 2019 20:14:36
I think Oilers should take this and run. Fills perfectly their 3c spot and now RNH can stick to McDavid's LW because that guy can't run his own line.

18 May 2019 08:01:15
Who you taking if you had to trade Auston Matthews ?

CGY : Noah Hanifin & Matthew Tkachuk
TOR : Auston Matthews

[ Tkachuk - Tavares - Marner ]
[ Hanifin - Rielly ]

ARI : Clayton Keller & Jakob Chychrun
TOR : Auston Matthews

[ Keller - Tavares - Marner ]
[ Chychrun - Rielly ]

EDM : Darnell Nurse & Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
TOR : Auston Matthews

[ Hyman - Nugent-Hopkins - Nylander ]
[ Nurse - Rielly ]

18 May 2019 12:52:50
Lol all brutal proposals that make the leafs substantially worse. I’d trade Tavares for the Calgarys offer but definitely not Mathews.

18 May 2019 12:53:39
I can't see the Leafs doing any of these trades.

18 May 2019 14:03:02
God these are all brutal, haha. Especially that last one, we heavily downgrade from Matthews to RNH for Nurse? Cmon, haha.

18 May 2019 15:14:02
I'd do the first one if I was the leafs gm for sure.

19 May 2019 20:11:48
Matthews is a Special Player that is going on 21yrs old.
Players like that are not Traded and if they are it's later on in there career, so any Proposal of Trading Matthews is something that just won't happen.

19 May 2019 20:15:13
Austin Mathews, Nikita Zaitsev and Timothy Lilijgren for Seth Jones, Brandon Dubinsky ( cap ) and Josh Andersson

That’s something I’d do from the leafs POV. I think Columbus considers this also considering there defence is STACKED and Mathews Replaces the production left by Paniran and Duchene.

18 May 2019 07:56:59
Who you taking ?

EDM : Connor McDavid
CGY : Matthew Tkachuk, Sean Monahan & Noah Hanifin

EDM : Connor McDavid
VAN : Brock Boeser, Bo Horvat & Quinn Hughes

EDM : Connor McDavid
TOR : Auston Matthews, Timothy Liljegren & Morgan Rielly

EDM : Connor McDavid
FLA : Vincent Trocheck, Aaron Ekblad & Jonathan Huberdeau

Who you taking if you had to trade McDavid and got these offers.

18 May 2019 10:31:09
If someone wants mcdavid it is going to cost marner, Matthews plus picks.

18 May 2019 12:53:44
Leafs don’t touch that offer makes them much worse.

18 May 2019 14:04:16
I may be biased, but the best offer is def the Leafs one. And realistically, it may be fair value, bur if Toronto does that it just sets ups back farther becaue of how much we lose in Mo.

18 May 2019 14:29:20
Agree with Topshelf. Trading Morgan Rielly straight up for McDavid would make the leafs a worse team as the defense is already brutal enough. Rielly is probably the leafs most valuable player within the organization.

18 May 2019 15:15:19
Edmonton gets better in each trade.

18 May 2019 17:51:52
No one would trade for McDavid, you’d have to give up half your team to do it so what’s the point?

19 May 2019 20:16:43
id rather just have mcdavid lol goat.

18 May 2019 04:39:21
EDM : Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
WPG : Nikolaj Ehlers, 2nd-Round Pick & Ben Chiarot

18 May 2019 04:48:32
No thanks from Winnipeg. That’s too much to give up for a guy who will be looking for a big raise in two years.

18 May 2019 07:48:31
I don't think Nuge will get a "big raise". Probably Nylander comparable 6.9M @ 4-6YR

18 May 2019 12:55:56
This is a close trade but I believe that Edmonton would want more for RNH.

17 May 2019 20:12:52
I will make suggestion for trade. Edmonton must make trades this summer or we will lose again. Edmonton must trade defense for forward. It is so very obvious.

To Edmonton Kasperi Kapanen
To Toronto Evan Bouchard + Alex Petrovic

Now is good trade for both teams. They are both getting good players they need, yes?

17 May 2019 20:19:01
No from Edmonton.

17 May 2019 21:49:25
Also pretty sure Petrovic is a UFA.

18 May 2019 10:34:49
Bouchard is oilers best prospect. why in hell would they trade him?

18 May 2019 13:03:27
Bouchard is the best prospect in Edmonton's system and has the potential to be a top pairing d-man in a couple of years. They would be foolish to trade him.

19 May 2019 20:14:19
zamboni, it is not a good trade. no no is not. Yes? no.

19 May 2019 20:19:56
You know a trade truly sucks for the team not named TOR if VB says the other team declines lol.

16 May 2019 12:31:21
Oilers: RnH and 8th overall

Chicago: 3rd overall

Chicago gets a elite Center and a good pick

And oilers gets their future no1 defender (byram)

As a oilers fan i'm all over this trade , what do you guys say? Is it fair/likely?

16 May 2019 13:29:45
Nuge isn’t an elite center, if he was you wouldn’t give him up to move up 5 spots. I still think Nuge is a big price to pay to move up 5 spots in the draft. I can see Chicago doing it, even if they don’t want to keep Nuge they can flip him.

16 May 2019 14:28:27
Well, I like RNH as well, but to call him Elite is a stretch. by the time Byram is a really good number 1 D, which I think he will be, that's 4 to 5 years away. McDavid needs help now. Better to trade RNH for immediate help I beleive.

16 May 2019 15:05:42
i say this is beyond stupid for oilers and you CLEARLY are not a fan.

16 May 2019 16:16:14
Clearly not a fan? Haha nah i haven't missed a game in 4 year (missed max 20 games since 2010) and got ryan smyth’s portrait tattooed on my leg.

And why would it be bad? Oilers need cap and can move drai to center he's own line and then trade sekera or Russel .

Then they got 10-11,5m extra cap for wingers.

16 May 2019 16:35:59
They got toews and strome 1-2 so don't really need another top2 c. As a Blackhawks fan would like this though. He can play wing and on a lot of prospect rankings byram is 6-8 so Chicago can move back and get whoever's there cause 3-10 it's a crapshoot anywa.

16 May 2019 16:44:37
Oilers don’t need a prospect D more than they need RNH. There loaded with D prospects and two that could potentially be top pair. Regardless it’s an over pay to move up 5 spots.

17 May 2019 00:38:50
Who is the favourite at #3? I was originally podkolzin, but Byram is enticing or do you grab a center; cozens, turcotte, dach. Then there is a playmates, zebras; goal scorer, caufield; and who knows what kreb could do on a good line or carrying a 3rd line by himself. I am for chicago, not sure why Edmonton would move up when the difference from 3rd to 10th is a toss up. You need to really want someone specific to give up Hopkins for this. There is better assets already in the NHL to trade Hopkins for.

17 May 2019 04:53:55
Oiler’s must not make this trade. Is so very bad for the Edmonton Oilers. RNH is such very good hockey player. And I read many times that % that 8 oa is great player or is bust is very same as #3 oa. They are basically the same pick. Is so very true. So that is why Edmonton must not do this.

17 May 2019 07:03:12
No from Edmonton. Makes no sense at all and value is off

17 May 2019 09:31:47
Zamboni stop Reading what others write and get your own opinion. byram will be much better than the #8

In my opinion byram will be better than Dahlin and he went first.

17 May 2019 12:16:57
Swechamp. Everyone can have their opinions. But not a single professional scout I've read has Byram at 3. Not a single one. The highest I've seen is 5 . He is above all the other defenceman in this draft by a bit but in no way is he close to dahlin.

17 May 2019 14:43:01
Better then Dahlin? Dahlin is the most hyped defensive prospect ever. No dman was ever as hyped as him coming out of their draft year.

17 May 2019 18:55:33

17 May 2019 20:25:45
Dahlin was compared to Bobby Orr by some and Lindstrom by most. Doubt Buffalo would move him for McDavid.

17 May 2019 22:58:47
Ok, just seen sportsnet has byram at 3 cause of his playoffs, my bad.

18 May 2019 10:38:19
Vb if oilers called Buffalo and Said ”mcdavid for eichel and Dahlin” Buffalo would accept in a heartbeat.

18 May 2019 12:57:33
No they wouldn’t lol Dahlin And Eichel are a cup worthy core McDavid is abit better then Eichel but not a lot.

19 May 2019 00:35:20
eichels not that great vb, the sabres should've picked marner.

19 May 2019 20:11:35
i agree with vb, there's defs no defenceman who had more hype than dahlin. However shoots, i have seen EVERYWHERE with Byram going #3. he's supposedly the best d prospect out of the whl since scott neidemeyer (butchered his last name lol) and lots of people are saying Byram is a future #1 dman. So the hype is for sure there.

15 May 2019 05:56:44
Canucks receive: Lucic, 8th overall

Oilers receive: Erickson, 10th overall

15 May 2019 06:46:35
Seems realistic to me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Another option would be just to retain both contracts at 50% to make Lucics last year easier to take.

15 May 2019 10:47:00
Yah no way Vancover touches that Erickson can still play on the 3rd line Lucic can’t skate.

15 May 2019 15:38:07
atta boy vb there it is let it out.

16 May 2019 18:04:23
Neither team really benefits from this trade.

16 May 2019 20:30:20
Can we stop with these trades? Eriksson has one year less than Lucic so his value automatically higher even if they both suck, but moving from the 10th to 8th isn’t enough to make up that difference.

Anyone who’s been following the draft and prospects knows that from pick 6-12 is a big “who knows” and any player we might want at 8 could easily fall to 12th, so moving up two spots to get a player we could easily get at 10th is pointless.

17 May 2019 23:31:36
fair trade!

15 May 2019 03:51:56
Edmonton Oilers:
- Bobby Ryan [7.25m/y for 3yrs]
- 2019 1st (19th)
- 2019 3rd (83rd)

Ottawa Senators:
- Milan Lucic [6.0m/y for 4 yrs]
- 2019 2nd (38th)
- 2019 1st (8th)

Both players with terrible contracts, both need a spark in their career.

Milan Lucic is less expensive but has an extra year on his deal. Ottawa is rebuilding and move up significantly twice in the draft.

Bobby Ryan also helps the Oilers with RW and scoring depth.

Not sure about this one so let me know.

15 May 2019 04:33:27
Ryan is actually owed more money than Lucic on the rest of his contract. Either way the Oil might have to add to a straight across trade but not nearly that much IMO. 8 to 19 is a lot.

15 May 2019 10:49:19
Fair trade I like it.

15 May 2019 11:16:38
no thanks from sens.

15 May 2019 14:26:04
Well ebsolutely Ryan can actually play while Lucic isn’t even good enough to be effective in beer league. So yes they need to add a lot.

15 May 2019 16:39:23

18 May 2019 21:06:02
If I'm ottawa, I'm happy I get the number 8 overall pick but If I'm EDM no way. nice try though.

19 May 2019 00:40:52
if lucic playing with mcdavid doesn't work, I don't know why people would think the #8 pick makes it worth it to ice that bum in their line up.

15 May 2019 00:57:00
EDM: Puljujärvi
WPG: Comrie

15 May 2019 06:13:54
Oilers are deep in young AHL level goalies. Starret, Skinner and Wells.

15 May 2019 14:02:16
The Jets don't need wingers.

15 May 2019 14:38:28
The Jets would do this trade as Comrie isn't going to get a chance to make the Jets as they want an older, experienced backup. The Jets can afford to put Pully on the Moose to learn the NHL game, if he can, before calling him up. I think Winnipeg would have to add to make this trade happen.

15 May 2019 20:11:58
The jets could use Puljujärvi. If they can dump Ehlers and his terrible contract onto a rebuilding team, Puljujärvi can slide right in. Winnipeg would have to add to get someone to take that boat anchor contract though. Good post.

15 May 2019 22:25:03
Boy Leafs17 you really don't know much about Ehlers or his contract do you. Stick to commenting on how the Leafs are getting a hometown discount in their signing of soon to be three $11.5 mil per year players.

16 May 2019 00:09:08
Please let me know if you find a post where I make a comment even remotely close to that. No need to make stuff up, that’s what immature kids would do. Please remind us all summer that Winnipeg is the 2nd best team in the league, like you did last summer.

16 May 2019 16:50:39
Just a horrible trade for Oilers for 1, Oilers don't need a goalie that might not be anything by his age should be in the nhl. Doesn't mean there's guys ahead of him, means he's not good enough. he's worth nothing yet jets fans treat him like he's a huge bargaining chip cause he used to be highly touted prospect.

15 May 2019 00:55:45
EDM: Puljujärvi
WPG: Appleton

15 May 2019 14:52:49
Right now Appleton is more useful to the Jets than Puljujarvi would be.

15 May 2019 14:55:20
If the Maurice plays Appleton, a natural goal scorer, on the 3rd line and let him play the same type of game that he plays with the Moose, which is a fast offensive game he will be ready to become skilled goal scorer in the NHL. Pully needs more work in minors to see if he can develop into an NHL player. People outside of Winnipeg don't realize how good a prospect Appleton is compared to Pully who comes with the hype of being the #4 pick over all, He was gifted a spot on the Oilers and even on McD line and failed miserably. I like Pully but I fear that if Appleton plays with McD the Jets could be giving up a 40+ goal scorer.

15 May 2019 00:53:01
WPG: Trouba, 3rd Round Pick 2020
EDM: Puljujärvi, 8th Overall Pick 2019

15 May 2019 14:03:39
No thanks from Winnipeg. The Jets don't need wingers.

15 May 2019 15:04:04
Just because Pully was a 4th over all pick doesn't change the fact that after being rushed into the NHL for 3 years he is still a prospect that needs time in the minors to learn the NHL game if he can. The Jets would want an established center/ d-man not only prospects and draft choices.
