EDM: Puljujarvi,Benson,Bear

20 Aug 2019 17:03:36
What? Hell no from MTL.

20 Aug 2019 17:25:26
No from oilers too, benson is their best forward prospect and had ppg in Ahl last, Will make the team this year or next year

Cant wait/ gamble for a player like caufield when it comes to benson.

20 Aug 2019 18:38:57
Typical overvaluing of Montreal assets. Easy no from the Oilers.

19 Aug 2019 01:47:38
WPG: Laine
EDM: Draisaitl

19 Aug 2019 04:28:12
Whaaaat lol


19 Aug 2019 05:35:02
This was already posted. Check the NHL talk page.

19 Aug 2019 19:05:25
Lol, it was also posted by you.
You seriously posted it, saw all of the replies that were saying Draisaitl > Laine and then decided to post it 3 days later as if that'll somehow change to Draisaitl = Laine.

20 Aug 2019 01:00:19
Actually it changed a lot.

20 Aug 2019 13:11:27
Actually no one cares about your opinions VB. Everyone has been commenting how crazy homer biased delusional you are lately, not just me.

18 Aug 2019 21:29:41


Not an actual offer just showing what I think is the difference in value between Drai and Marner. A solid young top 4 D and a C+ prospect

18 Aug 2019 21:50:37
That's a pretty solid overvaluing of Draisaitl.

19 Aug 2019 00:46:51
think you'd have to add at least a 1st from toronto, if not 1st and another prospect/ player.

19 Aug 2019 00:59:54
Yeah sure the Guy just had most goals in nhl last year (more real goals than ovi)

50g goals and 100p and that is overvalue.

19 Aug 2019 05:35:53
I’ll defend my Oilers 9/ 10 times, but yes, this is an over value lol.

19 Aug 2019 11:21:30
I wouldn’t want anything to do with Marner because of what he’s asking for for a contract. If he was making $8.5M for the next 7 years then I would maybe consider.

18 Aug 2019 06:38:10
Vancouver trades: Baertschi

Edmonton trades: Puljujärvi

17 Aug 2019 16:59:32


18 Aug 2019 00:46:59
As a devils fan I can see it. Wood is a good goal scorer and has the size and speed that teams love. He’s definitely more valuable than pool party but I think the 3rd makes up for it nicely. Deal.

16 Aug 2019 20:18:19

EDM:Puljujarvi,Bear,2rd 2020

16 Aug 2019 21:02:01
Lol why da hell would oilers do that? Puljujärvi straight up MAYBE. if oilers trade all those assets its for a top 6 with low salary.

16 Aug 2019 22:05:50
I don't think Carolina does this.

16 Aug 2019 22:24:07
I don't think you understand Necas' value man.
In most lists he's a top 10 prospect in the NHL.
Was even top 5 in some lists last season.

16 Aug 2019 22:48:12
Yeah Carolina says nope.

17 Aug 2019 09:15:09
Wdym that's a yes from car. Solid rhd d prospect, prospect with high potential, 2nd. Wdyyyym

17 Aug 2019 16:07:08
Am I missing something? When did Necas’ value plummet so hard? He should be worth a lot more than this.

18 Aug 2019 00:00:29
If necas is worth all that then benson should be worth all whole lot more.

18 Aug 2019 14:04:04
@swechamp why is that though?

18 Aug 2019 18:11:58
What does Benson have to do with Necas?

18 Aug 2019 18:21:34
Benson is just one year older and is ppg in Ahl / allstar player

Necas played for ahls best team and got 50p?

18 Aug 2019 21:52:06
Swechamp is right, bias aside. These are facts

19 Aug 2019 01:35:01
These are actually facts yes but it's also fact that one guy was drafted 12th overall and the other was taken in the 2nd round. This doesn't automatically make one better then the other but neither does having a slightly better season in the minors. Charles Hudon was pretty good in the AHL and look at him now. One would have to assume also that Necas had a harder time adjusting to the North American game too. Language rink size etc. Right now I'm sure if you polled every scout in the league and asked them who they would rather have at least 95% would not take benson.

19 Aug 2019 17:22:06
Well nhl network has necas at
18 and benson at 44 and benson slipped in the draft because of injuries or would of easily been a 1st rounder. they're really not far off from each other. But pool really isn't worth much at this point so Carolina says no.

20 Aug 2019 05:12:18
That just further proves benson is not worth more.

16 Aug 2019 14:14:47
WPG: Ehlers, 3rd Round 2020
EDM: RNH, Puljujärvi

Jets get a 2C and hope to spark Puljujärvi by reuniting him with Laine. Oilers get a top 6 LW to play with McDavid and also a pick for the difference in value. With Ehlers they get 6 years of term vs RNH's 2 years, both have the same cap hit.


16 Aug 2019 14:56:57
No thanks from Winnipeg. No reason to give up 6 years of Ehlers for 2 years of RNH.

16 Aug 2019 15:05:08
Oilers won't trade Ryan.

16 Aug 2019 15:09:56
Oilers have a top line LW to play with Mcdavid. And I would rather keep Nuge and resign him than have Ehlers for $6M right now.

16 Aug 2019 17:41:48

16 Aug 2019 18:37:37
Vertius sums it up perfectly.

16 Aug 2019 20:01:38
In two years RNH is going to want $9/ 10 mil per while Ehlers is still going to have 4 years left at $6 mil. Pully will want way more money than he deserves. The Jets shouldn't do this trade at all.

16 Aug 2019 21:05:07
Islandjet, let me correct you! Oilers won't go near that deal

Drai is a top 3 LW when he plays with mcdavid

If they trade RnH they need a new 2C.

17 Aug 2019 11:11:33
RNH will get a Matt Duchene type contract.

17 Aug 2019 14:55:52
He will get 7-8m

Next year oilers just need to sign nurse and kassian

Larsson will be the player Seattle takes.

This is the last year oilers will be in cap problem.

18 Aug 2019 22:45:08
Larsson isn't under contract for 21-22 season, so unless he resigns he is not eligible for the draft.

18 Aug 2019 23:58:45
Oilers do not have a top line LW to play with McDavid. Just a LW.

19 Aug 2019 18:37:43
Every Leafs fan say marner and Matthews is ”top” players, still draisatl have outscored both in every season?

Draisatl had 50 goals last year and and marner got 67 in his entire career.

14 Aug 2019 02:24:31
To EDM- Frolik
To CAL- russel, 2020 3rd
Both on expiring contracts, helps Calgary now that valamaki is out and gives the oilers another winger that can score

14 Aug 2019 04:16:44
Flames need Frolik way more than russell and why would they trade for a 6 dman at a 4mil cap hit next season. Flames are fine, they have Kylington or Valiev who can take up that spot

14 Aug 2019 06:28:03
Yeah, Flames got the depth to fill up that whole.
No need to trade anybody. and there are fine replacements in free agency if they decide they need one.

14 Aug 2019 13:54:10
hole*** :3.

14 Aug 2019 15:46:05
I’m pretty sure I read a quote from there GM that there looking externally for a replacement. Frolik is no steal of a contract either at 4.3M. Russell is probably a 5/ 6 D and Frolik is a 3rd line winger. Oil might have to add a tiny bit on this IMO.

14 Aug 2019 19:47:06
But froliks a ufa next season russell aint

14 Aug 2019 20:17:19
Also, don't see Oilers trading defencemen right now. They need all the experience they can get. and although Russell gets hated on, Edmonton doesn't have anybody in the lineup that can block shots like him.

I think Oilers are done with trades unless it's Puljujarvi.
If they need a forward, they'll sign one in free agency.

15 Aug 2019 17:52:15
Losing Russells cap alone would be enough benefit for the Oilers IMO. Jones, Benning and Persson can potentially take up the bottom half of the D core. I think a trade that upgrades the RD is what the Oil should be looking at.

16 Aug 2019 04:14:32
@ebs I agree. Risto would be a good fit for the oilers imo.

18 Aug 2019 02:23:34
Lol buddy edmonton traded their 2020 third, conditionally, to calgary in the lucic deal. How would it work to trade it to them again?

No deal both sides.

13 Aug 2019 21:21:30
Edmonton: Puljajarvi + Conditional 1st (if it's a lottery pick in 2020 edmonton can choose to move to 2021 instead)
Buffalo: Ristolainen + 3rd

Both players want a trade, both get a change of scenery. Buffalo gives up the better player thus get the better draft pick.

13 Aug 2019 22:31:01
I wonder where Edmonton is going to get the extra cap space to fit Risto into the line-up.

13 Aug 2019 23:13:11
I like it. not so sure about the 1st. maybe 2 2nds?

13 Aug 2019 23:59:43
If Edmonton wants Risto, Draisailt is going the other way.

14 Aug 2019 00:44:32
I got to imagine Risto is worth more than this. He should bring at least a real nhl level player back. One that can skate.

14 Aug 2019 02:09:16
Lol. Maybe if Chia was still around. I would not want this deal for Edm. Take the picks out and just make a pick from Edm a 5th/ 6th if anything.

14 Aug 2019 14:02:02
Lol Drais for Risto.

14 Aug 2019 19:49:50
While drai is playing with mcdavid he is better than eichel

Why would oilers trade him for the player with worst +/ - in the legue last year .

13 Aug 2019 16:33:47
STL- Joel Edmondson Ivan Barbashev 3rd

Buff- Risto.

13 Aug 2019 16:56:52
Some guy had a rumour and specifically mentioned the following players during his video blog.


He never mentioned that there were talks.

13 Aug 2019 17:06:28
They get top pairing Physical LHD can play top pairing minutes. and They get a 3rd line tough play making center that can move up if needed.

13 Aug 2019 18:59:14

A news article said ''he’s looked more like a bottom pairing or seventh defenseman who shouldn’t be trusted in high-pressure situations. ''

He collected just nine takeaways to 41 giveaways, the worst ratio on the team by far.

Okay, this is Colt 100%.

13 Aug 2019 20:24:10
Ya it’s Colt for sure.

13 Aug 2019 20:26:55
TyBa4. He played the previous 2 years with Petro on the top line. Last year he had a bad year but still spent most of the year with petro. SO yeah he has and can be top pairing. While you are at it why don't you look up his previous two years and use all his stats not just one you cherry picked.

13 Aug 2019 21:16:57
I actually don’t mind Edmondson but that’s not enough for Risto in Edmondson you’re getting a a potential bounce back dman who can play 2nd pairing, Barbeshev is a solid bottom 6 forward and a 3rd for a top 15 PP dman who is one of the most physical players in the NHL.

13 Aug 2019 22:51:26

Oh, the stats I ''cherry picked''?
His corsi % is average. Not horrible, but not good. Simply OK. Which is normal for somebody that is a fringe top 4 defenceman.
Show me the stats you want me to see.

14 Aug 2019 00:46:59
Table scraps and garbage for a top 4 RHD. I don’t think so. And where does Risto play? 3RHD? Or does St. Louis trade Parayko or Pietrangelo to make room for him? Stupid proposal.

15 Aug 2019 21:25:12
An oilers fan trying to educate the stanley cup champs about defence lol. This is too easy lol.

16 Aug 2019 18:39:59
the oilers have better defence than the habs.

16 Aug 2019 19:09:51
OH really? And when exactly did this happen?

16 Aug 2019 22:30:56
I mean. It's kind of common sense?
Weber is always injured (never even played one full season for the Habs), terrible contract and will be untradeable in a couple of years.
Petry is mediocre and overpaid.

Weber, Petry, Mete, Chiarot, Kulak, Folin
Nurse, Larsson, Klefbom, Russell, Bouchard, Benning

you're pretty funny, you're like the french Colt lol.

I mean Bouchard would literally be your guys' second pairing defenceman right now.

17 Aug 2019 02:00:25
Like where are all those stats and facts you were going to destroy me with? If you can't find them at least explain how anyone on the oilers defence is actually better then petry. i mean I like nurse and klefbom and of course they are younger which gives them the edge in the long term but really what have they done so far that makes them better? Also if he's over paid then I guess Larson is too right?

17 Aug 2019 02:07:17
Not trying to defend habby or anything but Bouchard has played a handful of games in the NHL. Chances are he’s going to be good but right now he’s a question mark. Weber is an absolute stud. Yes the injuries have been taking a toll and yes his contract is nuts, but you were talking about talent, not contracts. Petry is a pretty solid defenseman that Edmonton should’ve kept. The Oiler fans keep saying their d pool is deep so I’ll believe you. I’ve admitted before that I don’t know a lot about prospects, it’s probably the only reason I stay on this site. Some of you are very smart when it comes to the young kids. I definitely don’t stick around for the childish crap.

13 Aug 2019 01:30:10
Edmonton Oilers:

- Lawson Crouse

Arizona Coyotes:

- Olivier Rodrigue

- 2020 4th round pick

Arizona's goalie prospect pool is fairly weak, and they acquire the most highly touted goalie in the 2018 NHL Draft.

Oilers gain a young, physical forward that is signed on a cheap contract to take Lucic's role on the team.

Arizona has the depth to lose Crouse as he is on their fourth line anyways. Oilers have the goalie depth to trade Rodrigue.

Arizona loses an NHL player with a low ceiling, but gain a younger player that needs patience but has a higher ceiling.

13 Aug 2019 16:13:37
I think Crouse could be had for less. Rodrigue is the Oils best goalie prospect, he’ll more than likely make Canada’s world junior team.

13 Aug 2019 17:39:29
His sophomore year in the QMJHL has been a bit disappointing as he even lost the starting job in the QMJHL playoffs.
He also stands at just 159lbs.
He is a B- goalie prospect.

13 Aug 2019 18:32:18
Ohh really? I read he has more potential than Skinner and Wells.

13 Aug 2019 19:03:53
Yeah. That draft was pretty weak for goalies.
Best one so far (extremely early) looks to be Lukas Dostal.
Played 10 games with men this year in the top Finnish league and posted impressive numbers. (1.80GAA .922 save %) .

Alexis Gravel is second.

09 Aug 2019 23:28:24
Toronto: Marner,Bracco

EDM: Draisailt,Leduc

10 Aug 2019 03:40:12
Well idk who this Leduc guy is but I would assume the Oilers don’t do this.

10 Aug 2019 05:29:35
Draisaitl and Marner are even. Bracco > Leduc.
Leafs don't need Centers, Drais has good chem with McDavid.

No from Leafs & Oilers

10 Aug 2019 06:24:41
Draisaitl and Marner might be about even as players, but one is (or better: will be) making 2-3M less a year. Therefore, Draisaitl's trade value is def higher.

10 Aug 2019 14:31:03
Leduc>Bracco big time.

10 Aug 2019 20:08:26
Who is Leduc?
Leduc is a town 10 minutes from Edmonton.

So Toronto gets property in Alberta and Draisaitl for Marner?

10 Aug 2019 22:56:12
I’d say the value of the town of leduc would be a huge add for the leafs.

11 Aug 2019 04:50:22
I lived in leduc for 2 years lol and north and south edmonton split for 8 years. Lol damn i miss edmonton

11 Aug 2019 18:36:33
Draisaitl definitely has more value than marner. Bracco isn't the difference if Toronto is getting a town.

12 Aug 2019 02:31:52
Leon > Marner. bigger faster, better Passer, better scorer. center. and signed long term. Maybe Hopkins for Marner if Marner accepts 8.5 salary. Only way Marner and Leon trade teams is if it's
Morgan Reilly and Marner for Leon and Russell.

12 Aug 2019 08:31:05
FairTrade4all is back I see.

13 Aug 2019 03:25:30
He meant McLeod. And Edmonton and Leafs both say no for various reasons. And whoever countered with Rielly and Marner for Draisaitl and Russel is nuts. Not a chance Leafs consider that trade.

08 Aug 2019 21:03:30

Cap works for the Oilers
Canucks save 1m cap space
JP 2/1.5m
Gagner to the AHL again

Other than JP all are in contract years. Oil gain some depth & Canucks gain a roster spot demoting Gagner.

08 Aug 2019 23:37:35
So do the slashes mean one of those players or both of them?

09 Aug 2019 05:17:34
Both so a 2 for 2.

09 Aug 2019 06:02:05
Honestly, I think it's close value wise.
Oilers get their RD so Kris Russell can go back to playing LD, and Sven Baertschi for LW depth.
Vancouver gets a risky player with Jesse P, but if they can turn him around it'll be a steal.

09 Aug 2019 11:00:57
I like it

09 Aug 2019 11:54:26
Slashes generally mean either or.

09 Aug 2019 12:17:06
Slashes usually mean a hard
Slash with a hockey stick or a slash with a knife. What country is your dictionary from vbb?

09 Aug 2019 13:58:52
Slashes as a punctuation.

09 Aug 2019 18:22:51
Just messing around vbb. This site is what boredom is all about, haha.

09 Aug 2019 20:06:11
A few glitches on this trade.

1. Gagner played very well in Edm and was 10x better than Strome or Spooner for his Salary. If he plays as well this year as he did last year he is an NHL'er not AHL demotion as indicated.

2nd and most importantly.
Everyone seems to want Jesse for peanuts. Not happening as per Holland's statement. Good on Holland playing hardball with the spoiled brat who thinks that he can dictate his will upon an NHL franchise when he hasn't proven anything yet. Most kids would kill to play in the NHL, doesn't matter which team.

It will take a massive gamble by a GM to pry him out of Edmonton right now with either a top 6'er, or an unprotected 1st.
No one wants to give that for a risk like that, and Holland won't let the brat go for less than that. So STALEMATE time.

Realistically Holland's plan to send Pulu to Europe to have a bit of an attitude adjustment, and prove he can actually skate after double hip surgery is best for everyone. Losing his agent and blaming his child like request on the agent is something I think he needs to do to save face to get back to the NHL.

Ask is too high, return is too low. So off to Euro land you go. Show everyone what you're worth and then perhaps a realistic trade can get negotiated.

09 Aug 2019 22:06:47
@west is best
I'm an Oilers fan, and to be honest I'm pretty biased at times. But no way are we getting a top 6 player or an unprotected first for Jesse.

Sven Baertschi has the skills to become a top 6 players, he just has issues with injuries.

11 Aug 2019 04:53:33
Why did vbb get so many unbelievables, he's right lol about the slash

11 Aug 2019 10:05:23
Unbelievable are not dictated by the point created but more or less about the reputation/ Likeablilty of said poster.

08 Aug 2019 15:23:14
Edmonton Oilers:

- Ivan Barbashev (RFA)

St.Louis Blues

- Matthew Cairns (D)

- 2020 3rd round pick

Edmonton Oilers get their 3rd line forward who is projected to sign from the 1.5-2M per year range.

Ivan Barbashev hasn't worked out for the Blues, so a fresh start would make sense for both.

Barbashev is currently an RFA, and with his right's being gone, the Blues can sign Pat Maroon to a deal.

Cairns is a solid but underwhelming prospect. At the draft, his potential was to be a Parayko type of player but recently began to drop. He was selected 84th overall in 2016.

08 Aug 2019 16:19:05

Do you just make sheet up? Barbashev not working out in st. louis. LOL he is part of one of the best 4th lines in the nhl that was shutting out top lines in the playoffs and his physicality was needed to get through the west. LOL isn't working out. Please show me one article that states this.

08 Aug 2019 16:38:11

You just proved yourself wrong. ''He is part of the best 4th lines in the NHL. ''.
Barbashev is not a fourth line player. For his entire career, he was a scorer first.

When he was just 16 years old, he posted 62 points in 68 QMJHL games. Then surprised everybody that he fell to the 2nd round when he was projected to be a lock in first rounder.

Does that scream ''4th line hitter'' to you?

08 Aug 2019 18:24:34
Ryan Reaves scored 110 goals in pewee AA does that make him an elite scorer at the NHL? QMJHL stats mean just as much handicap in golf when comparing to the nhl for an example Jordan Schalmltz was a top offensive dman in his minor days now he plays a shutdown role in the AHL with top PK time.

08 Aug 2019 19:24:55
Oh my god. That might be the dumbest thing you have ever said VB.

08 Aug 2019 21:59:21
The point is player adapt and Barbeshev adapted to a 4th line checking role.

08 Aug 2019 22:30:40
Vb did you just agree with me. Wow he'll froze over. Lol. Seriously though vb makes a tremendous point. As players move up they tend to break out for points or take on roll playing. As for probing your point are you trying to suggest that he will score a ton moving up 1 line. the sheet you spew is just dumb.

09 Aug 2019 05:25:44
Redwing agrees with vbb’s when he praises a Blues player? Crazy!

09 Aug 2019 07:00:40
Fair trade

09 Aug 2019 16:19:03
Blues will not trade barbashev great bottom 6 center. Can and has swung up to play 2 line and is great PKr. So why on earth do blues downgrade LOL.

10 Aug 2019 20:11:36
Because they get LW/ RW depth with Maroon, as well as a 3rd round pick and a C level prospect.

Is the difference between Maroon and Barbashev a 3rd round pick and a C level prospect?
I think so. Considering you're calling Barbashev a bottom 6 centre.

08 Aug 2019 10:01:08
Toronto: Lilijegreen,Bracco

EDM: Puljujarvi

2 players who hasn't develop has hoped for soo far, but both still has loads of potential. Lilijegreen is younger and a defensemen so his development isn't as worry some as Pul so that's why Toronto only adds a meh prospect. Puljujarvi still has potential to be a 70+ point player but the clock is ticking

08 Aug 2019 11:16:49
Liljgren has about the same value as Puljujarvi at the moment. I would rather keep the right handed defenceman who still has top 4 potential then trade him for a RW that we don’t need and who we will likely play on the fourth line behind Kappy, Nylander, and Marner.

Also Bracco is not just a “meh” prospect. The only reason he wasn’t called up last year is because of the amount of RW depth the leafs had. He is basically a top 6 forward in the NHL already, he just can’t prove it because he won’t get the opportunity.

08 Aug 2019 13:11:48
Bracco a top 6 player in the NHL already? Even if he would of had 100+ point last year in the AHL you cannot guarantee that will translate to the NHL. Atm you can't even say he's a lock at bottom 6 in the NHL bcuz he has not played 1 NHL game.

08 Aug 2019 13:37:53
By the way everyone this is MontrealFinests new account it has been confirmed in the fantasy league so there’s that.

As for trade I wouldn’t do Bracco straight up he’s been getting better every year and was one of the best players in the AHL last year only thing holding him back from making the NHL is being in one of the deepest organizations in the league not to mention he contributes no defence making him impossible to put in a bottom 6 role he has elite hockey sense/ passing vision but a weak shot. I believe he will be a top 6 NHL player someday but as long as the leafs have Marner and Nylander on the RW he will not make the leafs.

Side note (s) - Bracco would be a great fit on the 2nd line RW position in Calgary.

I’d also consider Lilijgren for Puljujarvi but the only thing is the leafs couldn’t give him anytime off the 4th line unless if he was moved to LW or Kappanen is traded. Also that’d be trading from a organizational need for a position the leafs has a surplus of.

08 Aug 2019 14:57:31
Jeremy Bracco is a talented scorer and a good prospect. But currently, that is all he is. There have been plenty of players who were PPG in the AHL but could not transition that to the NHL.
I'm sure that list is in the hundreds.

Also VB, the fact that you said ''he contributes no defence'' is the probably the main reason he isn't in the NHL. AHL is a league where forwards don't really need to back-check.
That's the main reason a player and one of the best AHL defencemen TJ Brennan couldn't crack the NHL. Excellent scorer, horrible defender.

Also, which ones is Finest's new account? None of them have his grammar.

08 Aug 2019 16:30:05
Vbisclules And Bracco isn’t a scorer he’s something like Mitch Marner play wise with the puck. He’s about as good defensively as Nylander better then Semin tho. Also you can’t compare a deffensman who can’t defend to a forward who can’t defend.

08 Aug 2019 19:26:33
Why not lol? Both failed to get to the NHL because of their defence skills. Lack of them.

And there are hundreds of other examples. You Leaf fans are disappointing. You make it hard to be a Canadian hockey fan.

08 Aug 2019 22:00:56
He’s 21 years old lol and has dominated the AHL level he just hasn’t had the opportunity to play there yet I guarantee he’d make the Flames middle 6.

09 Aug 2019 07:01:44
Liljegren for Puljujarvi is more than fair but i feel like Leafs need Liljegren more than Pully

09 Aug 2019 17:36:59
No thanks from Edm, if And when Paul is traded it should be for a decent roster player to plug in now, or a F prospect of equal projection possibly. Not a D prospect. I like Timothy but the Oilers are ok at D prospects with Broberg, Bouchard, Jones, Bear, Samorukov, Legasson, and Persson. Few more I forgot too. With young Klefbom, Larson and Nurse already playing. As much as I like Timothy I don’t want to trade for him for Pup at this time. I hope Pul plays in Europe. Screw him. Lol.

07 Aug 2019 05:09:45
Edm Puljarrvi

Van unprotected 1st

07 Aug 2019 06:45:17
Pulj has said that if he doesn’t get traded, he isn’t playing. No way IN HELL he gets a first, and definitely not from Van.

07 Aug 2019 07:16:22
What is this.

07 Aug 2019 09:38:35
Send him to OTT for Pageau or DET for Cholowski

07 Aug 2019 12:00:46
Vertius nah bc they have away their first to tampa for free.

07 Aug 2019 13:00:17
Jesse p has hip issues, hasn't olperformed and is bichin about not playing. Worth a 3rd at best.

07 Aug 2019 15:01:53
Lol so many things wrong with this. Nucks trades their 1st to Tampa and this trade is potentially Alex Lafranier who is the best QMJHL prospect since Crosby for a probable bust.

07 Aug 2019 22:54:57
There is a big assumption here as mentioned . His hips. He needs to play in Europe to prove he can still play before any trade is even talked about. If he struggles due to his hips, THEN cue 3rd round pick rumors.

Assuming he is 100% he won't be traded for 4th liner no namers / 3rd rounder. In order for the trade to go. It has to be a similar player ( singular, not 3 no names) who has potential for top 6 that's struggling (eg Drouin) or an unprotected first with a team that is almost guaranteed to be in the draft lotto so as to at least have a small % chance to pick in the top 3 - 4.

Silly trades involving non 1st round picks, handful of AHL hopefuls won't be considered by that new GM Edm has as he's made up his mind that he can go play in Europe and no bargain basement liquidations will happen.

Van is the ideal place, Almost guaranteed a lotto pick. Already Has a borderline busted Finn who needs a fellow Finn buddy to chum with. Van likes their Euro's.

07 Aug 2019 23:27:51
Why would Detroit trade Cholowski for him? Cholowski is a much better prospect.

08 Aug 2019 02:52:14
Pulj has no value not because of his hip, but because of the ultimatum he gave EDM. He told them that unless he was traded, he was going back to Finland, all the GM’s in the league know this, so no Gm in the league is going to pay up for Pulj when they know EDM isn’t going to have him either if he isn’t traded.

And, to show how little you really know. Van can’t trade this years or next years 1st to EDM because of the Miller trade. Until we decide which first TB is getting, both of them are essentially frozen. So no, Vancouver isn’t the ‘ideal’ location, not unless Holland is willing to take a first 3 years from now which we all know he ain’t.

08 Aug 2019 08:23:12
@VB: 100% wrong. There is no chance TB gets a shot at Lafreniere with VANs pick. Condition is, if it's a 2020 lottery pick, VAN keeps it. If at all, TB could potentially get a shot at whoever gets picked first in 2021 (albeit highly unlikely) .

08 Aug 2019 14:42:23
What are you talking about I said this trade is? Not the Tampa Trade please read.

09 Aug 2019 06:28:47
"Nucks trades their 1st to Tampa and this trade is potentially Alex Lafranier"

"this" can be read and interpreted both ways. You should be more clear and precise with your language ;)

09 Aug 2019 11:59:33
Yah I’ll give you that since English isn’t your 1st language.

10 Aug 2019 06:26:41
Um, you were the one that wasn't precise with his language, even though it's your first language - so nothing you "could give me" here.

Use sentences that are clear and cannot be interpreted two ways and things like this won't happen. 100% on you, pal.

06 Aug 2019 21:56:21
To Edm: Julius Honka and Mattias Janmark

To Dal: Jesse Puljujarvi

06 Aug 2019 22:49:55
I wouldn't take it if I was Dallas.
Janmark is an important bottom 6 piece for Dallas and he doesn't complain when he doesn't play in the top 6.

07 Aug 2019 08:53:02
Considering Janmark is actually the best player in this deal (I can’t believe I justness said that), I would think Edmonton adds, not Dallas.

06 Aug 2019 01:48:53
WPG: Little, Roslovic
EDM: RNH, Puljujärvi

RNH > Little
Roslovic > Puljujärvi


06 Aug 2019 04:59:33
Big no from edm RNH >>> Little

06 Aug 2019 12:35:51
I don't see Edmonton doing it.

06 Aug 2019 14:23:38
Edmonton gives up the 2 best pieces.

06 Aug 2019 14:49:22
Little's contract is going to be terrible.
He is already beginning to decline. Since the Jets put so much talent next to him, that inflates his numbers a little bit.
He still has 5 (! ) years left on his contract at 5.2 AAV.

06 Aug 2019 18:51:17
RNH >>>> Little
Pulj > Roslovic

WPG adds big time.

07 Aug 2019 00:38:27
Puljujarvi is not better than Roslovic. From what I’ve seen, Puljujarvi is not even nhl level player. He needs some pretty serious development before Winnipeg can make use of him. I’m afraid Edmonton has wrecked him.

05 Aug 2019 19:07:13


05 Aug 2019 19:16:29
Edmonton doesn’t even have the cap space to do this.
I’m pretty sure they need to DOUBLE the cap space to get Nylander.

Also, Nylander > Puljujarvi.
Puljujärvi brought his own value down by acting like a little entitled b*tch.

05 Aug 2019 19:20:27
Can the Oilers even afford Nylander?

05 Aug 2019 19:43:19
Lol. not even close.

05 Aug 2019 21:12:14
If Dumbas retains %70. Sure. Lol.

05 Aug 2019 22:27:33
HAHAHA. You want an elite forward for a bust? Give me a break.

05 Aug 2019 22:35:44
You must mean.

Chicago: Nylander
Edmonton: Puljujarvi.

06 Aug 2019 00:33:52
Who is the elite forward?

06 Aug 2019 08:32:40
No elite forward vbb, trick question. One guy who sat out to get overpaid and another who tried to threaten to go back to Europe and failed, 1 will get a fair contract.

06 Aug 2019 18:18:03
The most leaf I meant. Guess so used to vbb saying that stuff my brain just wrote it, haha.

06 Aug 2019 21:02:13
It will be so amazing to rub it in your faces when Nylander has 70+ points this year.

06 Aug 2019 21:41:00
I’m going to cry if Nylander doesn’t score 70 tho.

05 Aug 2019 10:54:50
EDM: Puljajarvi, 2nd
ANA: Kase.

05 Aug 2019 12:49:41
Buffalo got jokiharju for Nylander, nylander hasn't proven anything yet so if oilers add a 2nd, the return should be higher.

05 Aug 2019 19:17:14
Yeah my Nylander doesn’t b*tch and moan whenever something doesn’t go his way. At least he’s ready to work for it.

05 Aug 2019 20:35:02
Well swechamp, the common thought on the chi-buf trade was chi took it where the sun don't shine. Not really a trade you would use as comparable when one team clearly won the trade.

06 Aug 2019 10:07:12
@Swechamp, the difference between the nylander trade and this one is that Puljajarvi has made it very clear he wants out, he has demanded a trade, and he's unproven in the nhl, yes he still has potential but at this point his value is at a low right now as teams know he wants out and the situation. so edmonton doesn't have any leverage here really. thus why i said add the 2nd. yes kase is still young but he's proven a bit more when it comes to being an nhl player.
