22 May 2019 04:23:45
WPG: Trouba (resigned)
FLA: Ekblad

Straight up trade. Ekblad gets a new start and behind Buff. Trouba gets his shot as the #1RHD in the US.

22 May 2019 05:18:41
Nope from Florida. Trouba ain't worth nearly as much as Ekblad

22 May 2019 13:54:00
Add Ehlers atleast.

22 May 2019 14:20:54
It could be something to work around. Florida would need to add due to Ekblad's concussion history and because Trouba is much better.

22 May 2019 15:10:26
I like the deal as its a good hockey trade but I agree with Memarcusjoe the Jets could be getting a player that however good is one hit to the head away from never playing again which lowers his value.

22 May 2019 18:25:37
Player for player I think this is a good trade, only thing I see is Winnipeg is cheap and wouldn't want to take on Eckblad's big dollar contract.

21 May 2019 23:57:32
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.

11 May 2019 04:53:44
Pens: Malkin

Panthers: Ekblad

Maybe some other pieces?

11 May 2019 11:57:32
Florida does not touch this Eklblad is way to important.

12 May 2019 00:35:55
Florida has so very much cap space they can sign very good player like the Panarin. They do not have to trade Mr. Aaron Ekblad. They have money. Money talks, b. s. walks, yes?

11 May 2019 22:11:17
Agree with vb, Florida doesn’t go near that.

09 May 2019 15:03:07
How about this.

Trochek to Wpg
(One of the young Fla Dmen) and/ or a 1st Rnd Pick - Wpg

Trouba - Fla
Little - Fla

Winnipeg Jets get a second line centre that they've been desperately wanting.

Florida takes Little and his contract from the Jets and they solidify their D with getting Trouba.

Jets get a young Dmen back and perhaps a 1st Rounder.

09 May 2019 16:46:34
Trochek for Trouba would be closer.

09 May 2019 17:26:49
Trochek at 5'10" would not be my first choice as a solid #2 center for the Jets. He plays on a very offensive team but his point production is on the decline, even less than Little, who probably wouldn't lift his no trade clause. Other than age and being paid $1 mil a year less than Little who still isn't a cap dump, is he worth Trouba? Even if the prospect was either Gildon, Tippet or Borgstrom with the mid number 1st I still don't see Chevy doing this trade. Jets are in a win now mode and would want a very good #2 for Trouba and Little.

09 May 2019 18:13:50
No need for Little in the deal at all. Something around a base of Trochek+ for Trouba would be more realistic.

09 May 2019 19:24:33
How is his offence less than Little? He’s one season removed from 70 points. He’s entering his prime when Little is exiting it. And what does being 5’10 have to do with anything? Isn’t Trochek known for his solid two way play? Not to mention he’s on a good contract which trouba is not.

09 May 2019 20:10:20
Trochek also only played 55 games this year and nearly matched the career 40pt #2 beast in Bryan Little.

09 May 2019 20:37:30
I really, really hope Trouba is traded for like a late first and a okay prospect just to see these jets fans comeback to earth.

09 May 2019 22:34:24
Trocheck + Tippett/ Borgstrom for Trouba by himself? My god.

10 May 2019 02:57:15
Haha vb I hope so to wow that would be great.

10 May 2019 05:41:48
But Trouba is a star, yes? He is very good player. Winnipeg must not trade him. Compare Trouba’s stats to the great Morgan Rielly. Very similar trend, yes. Trouba looks one year behind only. Maybe is Trouba next year to get 70 points?

Mr Bryan Little is fall down. Soon he will be bottom. Winnipeg must trade him now. He is no longer worth so much he makes.

10 May 2019 12:14:22
You can’t compare Rielly to Trouba. Trouba will never be as good offensively and Rielly won’t be as good physically.

07 May 2019 21:15:27
As everyone here hopefully knows Malkin is probably done in Pittsburgh and the front runner is Florida. Kessel is also apparently on the the block. Letang,Guzentzel, Murray and Crosby are the Pens only untouchables the Panthers have a ton of cap and can afford to take on both how do these trades sound?

Pittsburgh- Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel And 21st overall

Florida- Vincent Trochek, Johnathan Huberdeau ( 92 points this season ), Alexi Hepponemi and 13th overall

Pittsburgh- gets a young star coming off a 92 point season at a great contract while he's probably not as good as the two players Pittsburgh is giving he's still a very good player. Trochek is a solid 2C coming of a week season. He will likely bounce back. Hepponemi is a solid forward prospect with nice potential. The also move up 8 spots.

Florida- Malkin gives the Panthers a crazy 1-2 punch of Barkov and Malkin. Kessel is also a great player and can replace Huberdeau with ease. This makes the Panthers a much better team and opens a Stanley cup window.

Is Florida giving up to much?

07 May 2019 23:23:22
I think Florida gives up too much, if they’re trading for a guy like Kessel and Malkin it’s be to add to their offence not trade for them and give up young top 6 forwards and high draft picks. I think they’d be trying to get more secondary scoring and if they trade away huberdeau and Trochek they’re not any further ahead then they are now. Yes Kessel and Malkin are better now but for how much longer will that be the case. They should hold off see if they can sign Panarin and goalie Bob and keep their forward core in tact. They should trying to add without taking away top 6 roster players.

08 May 2019 01:55:33
No way Florida is trading huberdeau I think unless they get something crazy. he's a great player on a really good contract. Bit I'd say Florida is giving up to much. No incentive to get older and much more salary. Plus rumours that Florida is making a run at panarin and bob.

08 May 2019 04:51:37
Florida gets more expensive and older. They’ll be upgrading talent for what 2 years? Not to mention they trade the better pick and a prospect. No from them. Especially if they plan to spend big money in free agency.

08 May 2019 08:17:50
I like it tbh but i think florida may say no depending on how much they value Huberdeau which my guess is alot.

08 May 2019 13:40:22
Yah my 1st impression was Florida May be giving to much maybe replace Huberdeau with someone else?

08 May 2019 17:20:19
Florida has a strong offense and desperately needs defense so I don't think this trade address' their needs for a top pairing defense man.

08 May 2019 18:43:33
Yes, they are malkin is old if he was 27 or under it would be much closer.

08 May 2019 18:46:01
Yes, FLA is giving too much esp considering the age of the Pens players.

01 May 2019 02:56:25
As per Elliotte Friedman apparently the Jets may end up trading Ehlers. Here are a couple proposals.

TOR: Nylander
WPG: Ehlers

Leafs save just under $1M per year. Jets transition Nylander to C and solve their 2C problem. Both drafted same year right after each other, similar point totals, etc.

FLA: Trochek
WPG: Ehlers

Florida gets a dynamic winger to player with Barkov. Jets get a 2C and save some money.

Any other suggestions?

01 May 2019 07:08:38
I wouldn't put too much stock into anything Friedman says. I heard him today giving credit to Kyle Dubas for making the Phil Kessel trade. Lol.

01 May 2019 11:00:43
If the leafs didn’t trade Kessel they wouldn’t have gotten Marner or Mathews. Also the trade turned in Kasperi Kappanen and Fredrick Andersen. Without Anderson the leafs would be screwed.

01 May 2019 14:00:50
The Nylander trade may work, but only if the Jets' scouts are absolutely convinced that Nylander can play center. If not, then no. Although Nylander's contract is pretty bad, so I don't know if I want any part of that.

The Florida deal could work as a good base, although I don't know if Florida would want to swap out a center for a winger.

01 May 2019 15:08:29
Florida is not making that trade. They are extremely happy with what Trochek brings i read they love him there.

01 May 2019 16:51:23
@vbbbb but didn't Lou make the kessel trade?

01 May 2019 16:52:02
That was my point not that it was a bad trade.

01 May 2019 19:14:29
lol thanks habby! that threw me off a bit too.

01 May 2019 20:46:38
Ohhhhh okay that makes sense he was the assistant GM at the time. For some reason I thought Brendan Shanahan made the trade not Lou.

01 May 2019 22:47:22
Possibly it was shanahan vbbb I'm not sure if Lou came just before the trade or just after.

02 May 2019 00:33:14
Nylander for Ehlers trade would not help the Jets and it would cost them an extra $1 mil a year towards the cap. I see the Jets and Flyers making a trade involving Trouba and possibly a big trade that could involve more players.

02 May 2019 13:16:46
You add to Ehlers to get Trocheck, imo.

02 May 2019 13:17:51
Ya but it's not Dubas that made that trade.

02 May 2019 13:20:22
Trading Ehlers for Nylander doesn't make the Jets better and it adds $1 mil to their cap. I think there is a better chance of a trade between the Jets and Panthers that involves Trouba rather than Ehlers.

28 Mar 2019 11:33:59

Mikko Koskinen

28 Mar 2019 15:18:26
Every trade is dumb, especially the nuge trade that's horrendous. No way arizona takes that for galchenyuk like what are you thinking rn and i'd honestly hold onto gagner rather than getting a 7th round pick, ya we save some cap but like bru.

28 Mar 2019 16:21:06
Possibly the worse thing about this is how hagelin will get more the ferland as a Ufa. Ferland is going to get a 5x5 from some team.

29 Mar 2019 17:42:59
I'd say the Galchenyuk trade is the worst thing lol.

27 Mar 2019 14:05:51

27 Mar 2019 15:04:41
Um no from leafs unless they are extemely hurting for cap space.
Easy no from winnipeg unless for the same reason above.
No from oilers (cap + huge hole on defense) .
No from florida bcuz none of the above trades work out and florida should hang onto Tippet and that 1st, they aren't contenders yet.

27 Mar 2019 15:51:41
All these are absolutely terrible.

27 Mar 2019 18:02:27
I like Trocheck, but not at the cost of Laine.

27 Mar 2019 23:02:13
Jets will not be trading Laine.

25 Feb 2019 07:12:12
San Jose Sharks:

•) Joonas Donskoi

Florida Panthers:

•) 2nd Round Pick 2019

•) Maxwell Gildon.

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.

23 Feb 2019 00:44:52
I am hearing Mike Hoffman is about to be to traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets along with Derrick Brassard, Aleksi Heponiemi, James Reimer and a 2019 1st round pick for Sergei Bobrovsky and Alexander Wennberg.

Very shocking Artemi Panarin is not part of the deal. I am hearing Florida is in on the Bobrovsky and Wennberg package instead now.

23 Feb 2019 02:10:04
Do you have a source on this one?

23 Feb 2019 18:47:22
Would be crazy.

23 Feb 2019 18:49:54
Oh please be true lol massive downgrade on goaltending for Columbus with wenberg Hoffman cancelling each other out and Brassard sucks lol this will be a win for Ottawa in my view lol.

Reimer won't steal games like Bobrovsky can for Columbus making the pick and conditional pick from Duchene deal that much better while Bobrovsky helps Florida steal a few and move up the rankings.

Please make this happen lol.

23 Feb 2019 19:58:05
'Hoffman cancelling out Wennberg' 'Brassard sucks'

When they were on Ottawa, they were worth Brayden Point and Mikhail Sergachev tho?

23 Feb 2019 21:52:28
That would be a gross overpayment.

22 Feb 2019 05:05:25
Ottawa: anderson
Calgary: 3rd


Ottawa: anderson
florida: 3rd.

18 Feb 2019 09:21:57
Montreal trades: 2019 1st, Josh Brook, 2019 2nd.

Florida trades: jonathan Huberdeau.

Not sure about the offer just wanted to put something in there and see the comments.

If not what would be a good reasonable offer.

PS don't ask for Domi, Suzuki, poehling 2019 1st.

19 Feb 2019 19:15:52
Well yeah Florida will laugh at this imo. And you also included the 2019 1st but then said don’t ask for it haha. Idk tho I don’t know what Montréal could offer idk how valuable hubby is.

19 Feb 2019 19:16:36
But if I had go get Florida would need some sort of impact player coming back not just picks and prospects.

19 Feb 2019 22:32:50
Huberdeau for Drouin + Brook? Cause realistically, you only get Huberdeau if a solid player is coming back, ie Gallagher, Drouin, etc.

19 Feb 2019 23:20:08
yikes, Huberdeau is a point per player and to think Montreal won't have to give up good players in return is foolish.

18 Feb 2019 02:05:30
Trade proposal that might still be in talks with Columbus Blue Jackets and Florida Panthers

Columbus gets Forward Mike Hoffman, Forward Derrick Brassard, Goalie James Reimer, and 2019 2nd round draft pick (acquired by Pittsburgh)

Florida gets Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky

Columbus would get a top goal scorer in Mike Hoffman to help them in the playoffs as well as Derrick Brassard in the 3rd of 4th line. 2nd rounder added to take James Reimer.

18 Feb 2019 03:43:50
I like it, florida gets some time with bob to possibly sign extension or at least negotiate and he gets a trial till end of season to see if he likes it type thing.
columbus gets some pieces to help them compete in playoffs. i'd imagine this would be around the right package for bob.
Only concern i'd have is does columbus have cap space for this deal?

18 Feb 2019 04:15:55
That’s a lot coming from Florida, so iffy on that one. Don’t think they are that desperate to get just Bob but oh yes from Columbus.

18 Feb 2019 07:02:42
Don’t see how this even close and I don’t understand the Bobrovsky and Panarin trades to Florida. Why would they trade a 60 point player with term left for a UFA goalie when there 10 points out of a playoff spot?

18 Feb 2019 16:30:06
Between Panarin and Bobrovsky I think Bob’s is the one Columbus really wants to keep.

16 Feb 2019 13:58:08
Florida Trades
6th Round Pick 2019

Toronto Trades
4th Round Pick 2019 (Blues Pick)
3rd Round Pick 2020

Clears up some Cap Space to take a run at Panarin in the Summer for Florida and the Leafs add a Top 6 LWinger for the Playoffs.


16 Feb 2019 17:34:56
This is a fricken joke.

16 Feb 2019 18:24:16
Not enough for Hoffman.

16 Feb 2019 19:43:15
You have the right idea, but Florida will get better offers in terms of higher picks and prospects.

16 Feb 2019 21:36:09
zamboni iv taken note that you try to be very nice and respectful on here (good on ya) but this is not the right idea lol a top 9/ bottom 6 playern and a 3rd and 4th round pick does not get you a top line winger and a great goal scorer. Just because cats want to gain lots of cap space doesn't mean they'll give away top players for chump change like this. But like you said, florida will for sure get WAY better offers.

16 Feb 2019 23:30:16
Um both #notdelusional and islandjet what did Florida have to give up to get Hoffman?
4th, 5th and a 2nd plus San Jose gave up a late pick as well, CBrown is at least worth a 2nd Rounder plus the 4th and 3rd so you are both overvaluing what Hoffman is worth plus they are going after Panarin in the offseason.

17 Feb 2019 00:46:22
Don't try and justify it pinball it's horrible.

17 Feb 2019 01:46:17
Pinball it doesn’t matter at all how they acquired Hoffman. So that’s the most irrelevant fact you could have used. It doesn’t matter if they clear cap in a run for panarin they aren’t giving away a top player for this garbage offer. It’s a new season and he has a different value, and it is much higher than what it was during that Ottawa beef Dorian had no choice but to trade him away at his lowest value.

17 Feb 2019 13:33:12
Yup, just cause sens front office make bad trades has nothing to do with Hoffmans value. Like saying players like datsyuk and zetterberg were worth 6-7 round draft picks cause they were drafted late. Nothing to do with anything.

16 Feb 2019 08:46:20
Florida Panthers - Mike Hoffman
Edmonton Oilers - 2019 1st-Round Pick + Tyler Benson

(Florida gets a first and decent prospect for a rental, oilers upgrade on the wing)

Carolina Hurricanes - Dougie Hamilton + Roland McKeown

(Carolina surpluses defence, and adds needed top 6 c and oilers gain a top 4 defencemen)

Ottawa Senators - Mark Stone + Matt Duchene (pre contract negotiation talks with both players)
Edmonton Oilers - Jesse Puljujärvi + Kailer Yamamoto + Oscar Klefbom
(Sens get 2 good promising prospects and a top 4 dman, oilers get upgrades in their top 6 offensive positions)

Arizona Coyotes - Michael Grabner + Christian Fischer
Edmonton Oilers - Brandon Manning + Matt Benning + Zack Kassian + 2019 4th-Round Pick
(Oilers get better in their bottom 9 and arizona get bettet defensive depth and get grittier)

Leon Draisaitl - Connor McDavid - Mark Stone

Mikko Koskinen
Anthony Stolarz

16 Feb 2019 16:07:08
That's a much better return for Hoffman then the connor brown one I've been seeing . I'd be super hesistant to trade that 1st though if I were the oilers gm.

16 Feb 2019 17:39:31
Our defense still sucks and if oilers can get that arizona trade that would be very nice lol.
No from oilers on the first two, no from oilers on the ottawa one because we direly need klef and no way we can resign both those players.

16 Feb 2019 19:58:01
The first two are pretty good. Though I would hope we could get Pesce over Hamilton. Ottawa flat out rejects the third trade. Puljarvi isn’t any good and Yamamoto isn’t ready and probably won’t be for a while. Ottawa can get better return trading those guys separately. The Arizona trade I’m not big on either. Grabner is pretty old and is injured right now. Fischer is 4th line player and doesn’t bring anything to the team we don’t already have. Although you targets the right guys to move out, but Edmonton might be better off amassing picks and prospects instead of 31 year old wingers and 4th line grunts that we have lots already.

Canadian Cup Favourite after those

15 Feb 2019 14:58:29
Not Canadian Stanley Cup favourites. Awful goalie situation still, the bottom 6 and bottom pairing defensmen aren’t good, maybe average at best.

15 Feb 2019 15:40:25
No from oil.
No from oil.
No from oil.
No from oil.
No from oil.
Yes from oil.
Not even close to be a cup contender.

15 Feb 2019 16:21:31
A lot here. going to be hard to be brief, but I’ll do my best.

First two trades, I think we need RNH more than we need Nylander. And Nurse is better than Hamilton in my opinion. I like the physical play of Nurse, while Hamilton is a pussy.

The third trade, Hoffman is good, Reimer we don’t need or want.

The fourth trade, do we really want to be trading a recent 1st round pick for a pending free agent that we can’t afford to re-sign? Is Zuccarello going to drag us into the playoffs all on his own?

The fifth trade, LA can't afford to make, and I don’t think they are foolish enough to accept that anyway.

The sixth trade, sure, why not?

15 Feb 2019 19:59:25
McDavid wouldn’t even be able to entice a team to take Lucic.

15 Feb 2019 05:18:18
Hurricanes trade: Ferland, Faulk

Panthers trade: Hoffman, Brassard

15 Feb 2019 16:23:40
Panthers looking for picks and prospects, not another free agent and an expensive and overrated defenseman stripped of his captaincy.

15 Feb 2019 01:28:48
Florida Trades
6th Round Pick 2019

Toronto Trades

On the surface it looks like a lot for Hoffman but the Leafs will clear lots of Cap for the Trade Deadline plus Next Season and add a Top LWinger for Tavares and Marner.


15 Feb 2019 02:37:03
On the surface it looks like not enough for Hoffman.

15 Feb 2019 03:48:45
🙄🙄 bruh no come on.

15 Feb 2019 04:08:46
I understand the LW depth isn’t something to write home about. However, Tavares and Marner are looking to have career years, Hyman must be doing something right. Do you watch the games or just look at point totals? Hyman is a work horse and he compliments the skilled players nicely. Marleau will need to be replaced after next season but Johnsson is looking pretty good too. Brown would be a nice add on to land a top 4 defenseman.

Yes #Leafs17, I watch the Games yes Hyman has done ok with his grind game but putting Hyman on the 4th line makes a better 4th line and Hoffman with Tavares and Marner makes that line even better, it's a domino trade where you can trade for a Defence man like McQuaid and a Centre like Glendening after this one.

I’m just saying that defense should be a top priority. They have 2 solid defenseman. Gardiner will walk and I think Dermott will be just fine sliding in his place. If Brown is to be traded, it should be part of a package to get a top 4 RD. Otherwise it will be Kapanen or Johnsson that will have to go to address the defense. .

pinner you wish bud.

Again, Florida s looking for picks and prospects, not another pending free agent. This trade makes no sense to them. They want to free up as much salary as possible. Taking on Gardiner and Hortons dead weight contract makes no sense.

15 Feb 2019 17:28:54
I'd imagine brown and Gardiner for Hoffman, then Florida plays a 6th for Horton? Toronto should be sending a 1st or a top prospect for taking horton.

15 Feb 2019 21:12:26
Isn’t Horton on permanent LTIR? What’s the need to dump him? Toronto can afford his salary and it doesn’t count against the cap. Why give up assets for a guy that doesn’t affect cap in any way whatsoever?

WPG: 2nd Round Pick 2019, 3rd Round Pick 2020, Petan, Comrie (Kulikov)
FLA: Hoffman

Jets get a top 6 Forward for this year and next at a reasonable rate. They also get rid of Kulikov who has another year left on his contract. Basically they get more value for the money spent.

Panthers save over $850K worth of cap space, get a couple picks, a young player that needs to play and a young goalie for the future. All this can create the opportunity for them to target Panarin and Bobrovsky in the offseason.

14 Feb 2019 16:36:52
lmfao no from florida are you kidding me man. trade hoffman to save 850k hahah come on this is atrocious.

14 Feb 2019 16:50:54
Too much from the Jets!

14 Feb 2019 17:02:49
The Cats would be better off moving lower end pieces to make room.

14 Feb 2019 17:32:51
Oh yikes no from Florida not worth it at all for them imo.

14 Feb 2019 19:19:32
If florida is 850k short of signing panarin and bob, think they can get away with a smaller move and keep Hoffman to play with panarin.

14 Feb 2019 19:23:09
This trade hurts both teams.

15 Feb 2019 01:22:48
Can jets afford Hoffman? They are facing major cash crunch next year already and may need to lose salary. Taking on Hoffman would be a big financial commitment.
