To la kings: vanek and smith 1mil retired.
To detroit: brodzinski 19 goals and 15 assists on 45 games in ahl very good player and mcnabb.
17 Feb 2017 11:09:38
Yea I'd do it from an LA stand point.
17 Feb 2017 14:13:56
1 mil retired.
17 Feb 2017 14:14:53
I don't know who your AHL guy is, but this looks like a good trade for Detroit considering they should enter a rebuild, but don't know why LA would do this. They aren't a cup contender so why make the trade for a rental guy.
17 Feb 2017 14:29:50
Aha I bet you would.
17 Feb 2017 15:37:15
Sorry I was drunk last night. Don't know why I'd say that. Brodzinski is a solid player who will most likely be a 3rd line RW in the NHL. He's only 23 (he did 4 years of University hockey that's why) and he's looked pretty dominant in the AHL this year, and that's on both sides of the puck. I think if u want both then add like a 2nd for next year and Kings add a 3rd.
17 Feb 2017 19:58:57
Drunk words are true words. No take backs! Haha.
16 Feb 2017 18:02:37
To la kings: tatar, smith 1,2 mil retired.
To detroit: mcnabb, brodsinski and 2 round pick.
16 Feb 2017 18:43:22
Tatar's numbers have dropped in each of the last two seasons from a 29 goal 59 point season in 2015. I mean he's only on pace for 37 points.
17 Feb 2017 00:01:04
I don't see Detroit doing this deal. I don't know a lot about Brodzinski, not sure what his potential is. I would be interested in Kempe and willing to balance out the deal accordingly.
However, Detroit isn't going to trade Tatar yet. His value is relatively low. Detroit will wait until it rises again or we get a really nice prospect as part of the package. Tatar is still young enough that trading him isn't a priority but rather only if the offer is major.
If he is traded, probably in off-season as opposed to trade deadline because he is an RFA and the absence of Nyquist (Suspended) and trading Vanek as a rental required his presence for now.
Detroit is willing to trade Smith if LA wants for a 3rd round pick ( Maybe a condition to be a 2nd if they make Conference finals or he re-signs) Something like that?
17 Feb 2017 00:04:06
KingsLover, Tatar's scoring has dropped but is still young enough to turn it around. Playing for the Kings and a shot at playing with Kopitar could help so LA should be interested. His point production could just need a change of scenery. He played well under Babcock but was being put down by Blashill's constant line juggling.
Tatar still has chance to improve so don't count him out. If he was in his 30s I would be more concerned but Tatar has room to improve.
15 Feb 2017 01:35:49
Had an idea about Landeskog -> Los Angeles. Maybe off, but just an idea.
Los Angeles Kings Trade:
Dustin Brown - 20% Retained
2017 2nd Round Pick
2018 3rd Round Pick
Colorado Avalanche Trade:
Francois Beauchemin - 30% Retained
I think that Colorado takes this deal, they get a solid, decently young d-man who can compliment a struggling defense corpa.
LA may not because Jake Muzzin is a big part of their d-core, but he can slowly be replaced by Paul Ladue, Brayden McNabb and Alec Martinez.
Is it about even?
15 Feb 2017 03:59:16
Not close to what Colorado wants.
15 Feb 2017 04:30:31
McJesus the Avs get a great number 2 d-man in Jake Muzzin on a fantastic contract who is also a LHD. While I don't think they would take on Dustin Brown it's not like Colorado wouldn't want Muzzin.
The value is off yes, but if the Kings were to go after Landeskog it would be after the expansion imo.
15 Feb 2017 04:39:22
Lol. Ya not even close to what they are looking for. They want YOUNG players and a first to grow with McKinnon, Raantanen and their first this year. Try again.
15 Feb 2017 16:26:17
Adding brown in the package is a deal breaker for the avs, and probably for every other team in the nhl as well.
14 Feb 2017 08:52:06
Arizona : muzzin 3round pick
La kings: ekman larrson.
14 Feb 2017 09:31:39
Pretty simple no from Arizona.
14 Feb 2017 11:17:40
I know there was some people saying Muzzin is a stud but that's ridiculous.
14 Feb 2017 14:16:30
Yeah no from Arizona.
14 Feb 2017 15:39:25
Big fan of Muzzin but not even close.
14 Feb 2017 15:54:09
Huge no from Zona. OEL is miles ahead of Muzz.
14 Feb 2017 08:50:53
La kings: vrbata
Arizona : mcnabb.
14 Feb 2017 14:17:25
Isn't mcnabb pretty good? I don't know much about him but I thought he had more value than an old UFA.
14 Feb 2017 15:39:51
Agreed with McJ. Vrbata is trash in the playoffs aswell.
14 Feb 2017 15:55:14
Arizona would have to add for McNabb. Maybe a 3rd.
06 Feb 2017 22:41:25
Bobby Ryan (2.5m retained)
06 Feb 2017 23:08:14
The Ottawa one I'm a bit confused about tbh. On one side In like we'll Paranteau was on waivers but he is being paid pretty cheap and he does produce plus Ottawa would get rid of Ryan contract. But they wouldn't do this if they had to 2,5 million. They would want more if they reatainded that muchm aybe like a second rounder.
07 Feb 2017 01:40:09
I want absolutely no part of Bobby Ryan and his awful contract. The other trade I like though. I hope Kyle Quincey could bring back a 3rd, as he is likely being shopped.
25 Jan 2017 01:59:05
Canadiens get Tanner Pearson
Kings get 4th round pick
25 Jan 2017 04:25:15
What are you saying holy Christ no from LA
25 Jan 2017 05:10:19
You're fried dawg 😂
25 Jan 2017 06:41:34
Habs add Desharnais and a signed Lafleur jersey and Kings add Kopitar!
25 Jan 2017 01:49:30
Kings need top 6 scoring help so here are some trade proposals to improve them.
CBJ - LAK:
CBJ: Scott Hartnell [3.5 mil (1.25mil ret) ]
LAK: Dwight King (1.95 mil) + 2018 conditional 3rd
*Becomes 2nd if LA makes playoffs in 2017.
The Jackets need to lose a NMC like Hartnell's so they don't lose somebody like Saad, Wenneberg, Atkinson or Jenner to Expansion. King has 2 stanley cups to give the Jackets experience.
Kings get Hartnell @ a retained price because of his age and the fact that the Jackets should be desperate to move out his contract. He could look good with Anze Kopitar or Jeff Carter similarly to how Milan Lucic did.
LAK: Kevin Gravel (667 K), Matt Greene (2.5 mil) and a 2017 3rd round pick.
NJD: P. A Parenteau (1.25 mil) and Kyle Quincey (1.25 mil)
The Devils realistically will probably finish at the bottom of the East by the end of the year and will need to unload both these guys. Parenteau is having a solid season on pace for close to 20 goals again and 40 points.
Gravel looks like a solid top 6 d-man and he's a lot better than almost all the guys on the Devils blueline (besides Greene and Severson) . Plus they get a solid mid round draft pick.
Kings lines after:
Hartnell - Kopitar - Toffoli
Pearson - Carter - Parenteau
Gaborik - Dowd - Brown
Clifford - Shore - Nolan
McNabb - Doughty
Muzzin - Martinez
Forbort - Gilbert
11 Jan 2017 19:47:23
To Los Angeles: Landeskog
To Colorado: Muzzin, Gravel, Kempe
11 Jan 2017 20:03:45
Maybe change Gravel to a first? Other than that this is pretty much exactly COL's asking price
11 Jan 2017 21:48:21
Rederov what do you mean it's Cold asking price. They need a left handed Defensemen yes but not one that's already in his prime. Their rebuilding so the defensemen that they get in a package for Landy is going to be in his early 20 not more then that
12 Jan 2017 01:34:30
Duchene 25, Johnson 28, Landeskog 25, Barrie 25 and Muzzin 27. I'd day he fights in with there core pretty good. Definitely not in a rebuild either.
26 Dec 2016 18:48:40
Brian Gionta 50% retained
Josh Gorges 50 % retained
06 Dec 2016 23:50:37
Habs: 2017 3rd
Call up lindgren
Habs: desharnais, 2017 2nd, mccarron
Coyotes: Hanzal, 2017 4th
Florida: conditional 2018 2nd
Habs: pacioretty, lehkonen, 2017 2nd
Anaheim: rakell, lindholm.
07 Dec 2016 00:41:26
Plz stop the ridiculousness is too far.
07 Dec 2016 03:13:28
Montreal fans. STOP! Please!
07 Dec 2016 12:37:19
Montoya is not worth a 3rd, Condon got a 5th.
Basically a second and McCarron for Hanzal, no from ARZ.
Jagr is not going anywhere at this point in his career, even so a conditional 2nd isn't enough despite his age.
07 Dec 2016 15:00:21
Hanzal is worth Desharnais and 3rd only, Habs won't give up 1st round prospect for a 3rd line centre UFA rental.
07 Dec 2016 23:10:07
sir yup why should habs fan stop, there more habs fan in the world, then there are fans for all other the other teams, and we are passionate, and sir yup you still have not answered my question?
24 Nov 2016 22:53:17
Los Angeles:Dustin Brown
25 Nov 2016 03:14:31
Why and how does that help montreal.
25 Nov 2016 04:16:37
No from montreal
25 Nov 2016 04:39:36
Big No from Habs: Plek 1 has more year on his deal while Brown has 5 more years with a big cap hit.
06 Nov 2016 14:16:18
Subban for Brown (50% salary retained)
Kings get someone to replace quick while he's injured and for the future. while the bruins get a grit and more scoring at a decent price. could this happen or does a team need to add?
06 Nov 2016 16:20:45
woah i'm back and this first thing I see buh bye.
06 Nov 2016 17:34:52
06 Nov 2016 22:20:26
"HabsFanThaIsNotBiased" MontrealsFinest is back! Has to be him with a new name like that, right?
07 Nov 2016 00:53:53
Yup. let's hope so! . site is getting stale.
07 Nov 2016 05:50:54
Kings add Kopitar.
07 Nov 2016 12:26:56
"bruins get a grit and more scoring" - Brown hasn't put up 30 points in over 4 seasons.
07 Nov 2016 21:53:15
I am not MontrealFinest idk who that even is. And why did so many people disagree and I said the trade was bad basically.
08 Nov 2016 04:09:01
Oh, you can actually speak good English. Yep you're not montrealsfinest. Sorry man my bad. I apologize.
04 Nov 2016 22:30:22
Los Angeles Kings Acquire:
Jaroslav Halak - 10% Retention
New York Islanders Acquire:
2017 2nd Round Pick
*saw Purcell for Greiss proposed much earlier, peolle said more needed to be added. What about this?
04 Nov 2016 23:33:34
Probably is fair but Kings would screw themselves the second Quick is back off IR cap wise. I heard Kings were going to try Anders Lindback in net if all else fails before trading for a goalie.
05 Nov 2016 13:05:41
Bee Jay is right we'd be screwed by the cap.
01 Nov 2016 21:37:23
Los Angeles Trades:
2017 5th Round Pick
*Subban needs a kickstart, Boston could use a d-man, and the Kings could use a goalie for the stretch.
01 Nov 2016 22:07:30
Subbans terrible. Maybe for McIntyre, but Boston would have to add because to start the season off yhe season sp far McNabb has proven he's capable of being a second pairing d-man by himself and the when he's with Drew Doughty he's a terrific puck mover. So big no from LA.
01 Nov 2016 22:35:56
From what I've seen McNabb looked pretty solid and LA isn't real deep on the blue line, no from them.
02 Nov 2016 01:28:31
McNabb is actually good, Boston will need to add for him.
02 Nov 2016 03:37:44
Subban is a bust.
02 Nov 2016 17:56:47
Boston says yes please.
21 Oct 2016 05:06:09
Kings trade: Adrian Kempe
Flyers trade Mason or Neuvirth and a 3rd round pick
Jets trade: Trouba
Philly trades:. Sanheim, MacDonald, Mason and a 1st round pick
This trade could be completely off for two reasons. First is I've never made a trade with a cap dump so value might be off. Second, I don't watch/ follow the jets enough to know if they could use a goalie, or if theirs are good.
21 Oct 2016 06:19:41
They don't need a goalie.
21 Oct 2016 11:17:37
Kings haven't moved Kempe in the past and I doubt they move him now.
23 Oct 2016 04:52:15
Sanheim > Trouba.
23 Oct 2016 08:38:50
kempe for mason (with salary retained) maybe.
18 Oct 2016 21:57:06
Washington Capitals Trades:
(G) Philipp Grubauer
2018 6th Round Pick
Los Angeles Kings Trade:
2017 2nd Round Pick
*Kings acquire a stopgap goalie to take Quicks place for 3-4 months, while paying the price of a pick; to roll a Grubauer-Zatkoff tandem over a Zatkoff-Budaj tandem.
Washington Capitals Trade:
2017 4th Round Pick
Edmonton Oilers Trade:
*Edmonton acquires a pick in order to trade a player who really wasn't needed, considering L. B in the farm system.
Why does Washington do all of this?
Grubauer is better than Gustavsson, don't get me wrong, but the Kings need a semi-decent goalie, so that's why I'd suggest them going after Grubauer instead of Jonas Gustavsson. That said, I think Washington should make this deal, as really Philipp Grubauer SHOULD be one of the three goalies taken by Las Vegas in the expansion draft (right now I'd say either Pickard/ Varlamov, Grubauer and Matt Murray/ Marc-Andre Fleury if their issue isn't resolved) . They should trade him while he has value, instead of losing him for nothing to Vegas. They still get a reliable backup, and really, Gustavssson isn't going to be in more than 15 games with Holtby holding the mound, so really, even if his record is like 6-8-1, the Caps wouldn't have to worry. (although i think itd be more like 8-5-2).
Basically Caps Trade:
4th Round Pick
6th Round Pick
in exchange for.
2nd Round Pick
I don't think that's too far-fetched. Thoughts?
18 Oct 2016 22:03:21
Wow. I go away for a second and then its posted. Poof, fastest I've ever seen.
19 Oct 2016 00:21:11
No from Caps. They'll keep Grubby.
19 Oct 2016 05:15:10
If they wanted the monster then they could have easily just signed him then. No from caps.
19 Oct 2016 08:07:42
Why does everyone keep thinking the Oilers have a 2nd? Smh.
17 Oct 2016 15:17:44
Kings Get: Ben Bishop
Lightning Get: Jack Campbell, Michael Mersch, Kevin Gravel, Adrian Kempe, Nick Ebert.
17 Oct 2016 16:27:12
a pile of scraps for an excellent goalie. nice.
Hint: 5 for 1 trades are never good.
17 Oct 2016 16:33:51
The Kings don't have Ebert anymore.
17 Oct 2016 18:01:13
Just curious why there is a 'believable' vote here. Only time 5 AHL players were traded for 1 NHL player I can think of was last season when the leafs sent 5 guys that were never going to make the next step, to the islanders for grabner. They took on an overpaid 3rd liner who's offense had dried up in exchange for roster spot flexibility. Never going to happen for a Goalie who has been in the vezina conversation for 3 straight years.
17 Oct 2016 18:16:45
1) It's 5 AHL prospects, not random players
2) Grabner is actually a very good all-round player.
17 Oct 2016 18:25:31
Why would the Lightning do this lol. Plus Kings can't afford Bishop.
17 Oct 2016 18:43:29
I guess speaks to the weakness of LAK farm system. Michael Mersch, Kevin Gravel and Adrian Kempe are 3 of LAK top 5 prospects.
17 Oct 2016 19:17:58
Exactly. How is that + 2 other prospects not enough for Bishop?
17 Oct 2016 20:34:12
I don't think gretzkyghost was complimenting the trade, more pointing out how weak the Kings prospect pool is. Tampa has bishop, Tyler Johnson, drouin, palat all on expiring contracts and have been so close to the cup twice. They need to go for it now. Trading a great goalie for 3 mediocre prospects and 2 plugs doesn't get them closer, but knocks them much further away.
17 Oct 2016 20:45:25
Shankar remember garbner.
17 Oct 2016 21:33:48
because it's not. Getting 3 of a top 5 means nothing as it tells you nothing of the strength of the top 5 in relation to the rest of the league. You have to be able to understand this without me spelling it out for you. Don't be stupid.
17 Oct 2016 21:56:09
he shanks stop being a huge "helmet"
17 Oct 2016 22:48:21
Kempe is pretty good though isn't he? But yeah obviously not going to happen.
17 Oct 2016 23:51:29
Leafs traded Kessell for scraps.
18 Oct 2016 01:10:19
Mersch, Kempe and Gravel are argueably 3 of LA's top 5 prospects. Even if Quick is out for the season going after Bishop wouldn't make much sense.
17 Oct 2016 12:51:06
Has anyone heard of a Pavelic to the Kings rumor?
17 Oct 2016 14:06:15
Nope. And if Quick somehow ends up out for the year, they won't settle for Pavelec. They'll take a much bigger name like Bishop or Fleury.
17 Oct 2016 14:58:46
Why would they pay the price for Bishop or Fluery? Pavalec would be a good option.
17 Oct 2016 15:24:31
^ @hugecaosfan what do they do at the end of the year when they give away a top goalie for nothing to the expansion team.
17 Oct 2016 17:40:15
Bishop is a a pending free agent anyway. So you can consider him as what in baseball they call a "rental. " Then they can protect Quick.
17 Oct 2016 18:17:24
How is Pavelec a good option? He got sent to the minors by Winnepeg. Tough to do these days.
17 Oct 2016 18:48:17
Acquiring Bishop would essentially allow them to compete this year while not affecting their future in goal. That being said with no inclination to resign him i'm not sure what they would be willing to give.
17 Oct 2016 19:18:47
Because they only need a goalie for 1 year. Quick will be back next year. Bishop only has 1 year left on his contract.
17 Oct 2016 19:38:35
LA may need a quality goalie if Quick decides to go the surgery route over rehab. Bishop would be a good option to go after but when weighing in the question of the cost, it would be HIGH for LA. Why? Consider this: it's already known that Yzerman is weighing keeping Bishop and letting him walk or trading him for assets. TB is going to be a strong playoff contender this season so that's not an easy choice. To make the decision to move him this early in the season would require a very good return in spite of his UFA status. Add to that the fact that LA would be reaching out almost in desperation, TB is at an obvious advantage in this situation. If I were TB and actually decided upon making that trade, I'd be asking for Enroth, LA's top prospect, and a mid-round pick for Bishop and a late pick. And if that doesn't work for LA, well, then Bishop helps TB reach the playoffs and maybe win the Cup this year. TB holds all the cards in this situation.
That said, I don't see it working for either team regardless. Too expensive for LA, and too early for TB to move Bishop.
17 Oct 2016 20:12:51
Chirp is completely right. Bishop would be nice for LA, but he will cost them too much to acquire him. For all the goalies that are considered to be on the "block", Pavelec is the best option for LA.
17 Oct 2016 20:22:30
Pavalec isn't needed in Winnipeg but he can still keep a good team afloat. But Quick is out for a full season? I didn't know that.
17 Oct 2016 21:10:28
He's the right guy to lead them to 8th in the division. You are 100% right on that.
17 Oct 2016 22:10:45
You can ask for Enroth but he plays for the leafs.
17 Oct 2016 22:37:21
Pavalec has never had a cup contending team in front of him. could be interesting.
18 Oct 2016 00:17:26
lol @ JF12, Pavelec has barely had a playoff team in front of him.
18 Oct 2016 00:37:50
HA! Good catch, Leafs17. I'm living In the past. Haha.
Darn you smart leafs fans. Both of you. :P
Kuemper outta Minne seems like the next best bet by my thoughts. He's played NHL, he's semi-proven, he would be cheap. Could see Martinez and a late pick for Kuemper and a 2-3rnder.
18 Oct 2016 12:29:52
About the team in front of Pavelec, he made it to the playoffs with them a few years ago, so it's hard to say that.
18 Oct 2016 13:00:32
How about Howard from the Red Wings?
16 Oct 2016 03:55:44
L. A. Kings trades
Conditional 4th round pick in 2017 (becomes a 3rd if Pavalec plays 25 games)
Pavalec with 50% retained.
