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.
16 Oct 2016 03:05:08
The Los Angeles Kings have inquired about Winnipeg Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec.
They couldn't select Pavelec off waivers due to the associated cost, and will have to dump salary to get the deal done.
Pavelec currently carries a $3.9 million cap hit, while the Kings have about $1.5 million to play with.
15 Oct 2016 01:12:20
With Quick potentially need surgery and out 3/ 4 Months I propose the Canucks could help out the Kings.
-Ryan Miller (50% retained)
Canucks tank for Nolan Patrick and Kings get a goalie to stay competitive. Let's be real, without Quick this season is lost for LA.
15 Oct 2016 09:05:27
I don't know if Miller will be the answer.
15 Oct 2016 15:30:18
Miller is past his prime. He'd be an improvement over Zatkoff and Budaj, but I'd rather either get a big fish like Bishop or keep the goaltending the same and have a bad season.
15 Oct 2016 18:09:19
Kings also have 0 need for Bishop when Quick is still on the team. I'm sure they will be fine for however long Quick is out.
08 Oct 2016 14:12:43
Boston Bruins Trade:
Los Angeles Kings Trade:
2017 4th Round Pick
Boston gets a d-man who could play top 4, LA gets a serviceable top 9 guy who could slide up if needed.
Idk bout value tbh, just thought that this kinda fits team needs for both. Improvements?
08 Oct 2016 15:17:04
Don't think the Kings would want Hayes contract.
08 Oct 2016 17:10:45
We need McNabb more than we need Hayes. I mean the value is similar, but the D corps in LA is not good enough where we can be giving up D-men that we need.
08 Oct 2016 19:17:29
Jimmy Hayes is worth the 4th. Take out McNabb.
08 Oct 2016 20:54:00
Thx for comments, was basing hayes' value off of the smith trade, but gheez, if hayes' value has dropped that significantly, boston lost that smith trade by quite a bit.
07 Oct 2016 21:17:54
Los Angeles Kings Trade:
2017 2nd Round Pick
Tampa Bay Lightning Trade:
Kucherov - Kopitar - Gaborik
Pearson - Carter - Purcell
Brown - Shore - Kempe
Clifford - Lewis - King
Killorn - Stamkos - Toffoli
Drouin - Johnson - Palat
Namestnikov - Filppula - Callahan
Paquette - Boyle - Condra
Kucherov > Toffoli
07 Oct 2016 21:51:07
NO! NO! NO!
07 Oct 2016 21:51:17
07 Oct 2016 22:54:38
Aren't toffoli and Kucherov almost indentical?
08 Oct 2016 01:02:02
Kucherov > Toffoli.
08 Oct 2016 01:27:54
Kucherov gets slightly more points but Toffoli has a strong two way game.
07 Oct 2016 13:37:42
Detroit needs cap space and the Kings need a top 9 forward because of injuries and suspensions.
Det: Tomas Jurco
LAK: 2017 5th, and 2018 6th
Det: Teemu Pulkinnen
LAK: 2017 4th and 2018 6th
It seems Detroit does not value them enough to put them in the lineup consistently and they'll risk losing them for nothing if they decide to put em waivers. Idk if this would be their values, but LA could really use some top 9 (or at least potential top 9) forwards.
07 Oct 2016 13:59:10
Detroit doesn't seem to value them that highly, but they could definitely fetch a bit more than that I would think.
07 Oct 2016 14:12:17
I think both players could get a better offer.
07 Oct 2016 15:33:37
Ok yeah I definintely can't tell what the heck their values are. I mean if u guys say they could both get higher values, like just a 3rd round pick for one of em?
07 Oct 2016 18:41:53
I'm saying a 3rd for one or a 2nd for both is fair.
11 Sep 2016 17:03:31
Leafs and kings
Leafs trade lupal holland 4th
Kings brown pearson and 1st
This trade salary wise is close
Kings get lupal who If healthy can help them or they can ltir him and have the cap space
Holland would fit in there bottom 6 nicely
Kings save 4 years on brown contract after lupals is up
Tor takes 6 years of brown yes but in the rebuild he could be a leader play bottom 6 and after a few years leafs can buy him out the last 2 years
Leafs get a good young forward in pearson who would help them this year and could make it easier to trade jvr for a dman that could them this year
And a 1st it be late but that's just a sweenter for the leafs taking brown on
Leafs fans won't like this I am a leafs fan and believe they could use a leader like brown that has won the cup plays hard even tho he isn't that skilled or fast but could be a great leader for them.
11 Sep 2016 19:32:40
I get your thoughts here but I think Kings just suck up Browns contract or if they were willing to include Pearson and a first with brown, someone might take it without having to take lupul back.
11 Sep 2016 19:34:30
Easy no from the Kings man. Holland and Lupul are worth nothing.
11 Sep 2016 19:34:48
I wish man no from Kings.
11 Sep 2016 20:08:59
Agree with Jim.
11 Sep 2016 21:26:57
This is absolutely brutal for LA. In what universe did you actually think Lupul and Holland are worth that much. Bruh. And you said you don't think Leafs fans would like this trade? Are you serious. Come on Mike you're better than that.
11 Sep 2016 22:42:34
Ya I just got home and read it over was a pretty bad effort on my behave.
11 Sep 2016 22:42:53
12 Sep 2016 00:08:23
Why would my team give up a 1st for Lupul and Holland?
06 Sep 2016 01:56:22
Leafs: Nazem Kadri, 2nd
Wild: Erik Haula, Matt Dumba
Leafs: Tyler Bozak
Hurricanes: Viktor Stalberg
Leafs: Leo Komarov
Oilers: Nail Yakupov, Anton Lander
Leafs: Milan Michalek, Colin Greening
Flames: Michael Ferland, Dennis Wideman
Leafs: Garrett Sparks, Jeremy Bracco, Brendan Leipsic, 2nd
Stars: Cody Eakin, Valeri Nichushkin
Leafs: Martin Marincin
Coyotes: Jarred Tinordi
Leafs: Joffrey Lupul
Kings: Dustin Brown
Van Riemsdyk - Matthews - Nichushkin
Nylander - Haula - Marner
Brown - Eakin - Yakupov
Ferland - Laich - Shoshnikov
Hunwick - Reilly
Zaitsev - Dumba
Polak - Wideman.
06 Sep 2016 12:47:34
Most easy nos from not Toronto.
06 Sep 2016 15:20:31
And a no from Edmonton as well.
06 Sep 2016 15:54:28
Most easy nos from the other teams, especially the Calgary one.
06 Sep 2016 17:48:26
I'd consider the Oilers trade because i like the style Komarov plays, but then again I think Oilers would rather get a dman and not another forward.
06 Sep 2016 18:35:38
Bozak for Stalberg?
06 Sep 2016 18:41:31
Some good proposals here. A couple, like the Brown one would be intriguing. Unfortunately, his contract is just too crippling.
06 Sep 2016 19:36:59
The easiest no is from common sense lol 7 trades to remake a whole roster and the only true value the leafs gave up was kadri. Komorov also, but a heart and soul over tangible numbers type. Like the passion but not possible.
06 Sep 2016 00:08:45
LA Kings trade Dustin Brown to Toronto Maple Leafs for Joffrey Lupul, 6th.
06 Sep 2016 10:51:24
Oh nvm lol stupid hoax
06 Sep 2016 11:11:50
Harambe didn't die for this, c'mon man.
02 Sep 2016 19:32:11
Los Angeles: Muzzin.
03 Sep 2016 00:15:02
No from LA.
03 Sep 2016 00:20:29
No way from LA.
03 Sep 2016 01:14:49
Even tho Trouba is younger and may turn out better than Muzzin, there's no way LA will separate Muzzin and Doughty. That won't happen.
03 Sep 2016 02:37:27
Good idea but this trade would never happen.
22 Aug 2016 17:52:24
Rumours that RD collegiate Matt Benning could be inked by the Oilers, Canucks or Kings as early as today. His numbers are comparable to NHL regulars and could be a good steady top 6 option in the future as well as a RD towards the farm team.
22 Aug 2016 18:54:03
I heard he's a devastating hitter too lol.
22 Aug 2016 19:17:13
Jim Benning signs Matt Benning? Lol wasn't this guy drafted like 5-6 years ago by Boston?
22 Aug 2016 20:00:24
Man i'd love it.
Right handed shot, good hitter and was born in Edmonton.
22 Aug 2016 20:09:16
Hope LA signs him.
22 Aug 2016 22:34:54
Doesn't Edmonton have enough 5-6 defenseman?
22 Aug 2016 23:42:00
You can almost never have enough depth.
You can't predict how many players will get injured and who will turn out to be a diamond in the rough.
Especially because defenceman take longer to develop you never know.
23 Aug 2016 00:30:28
When there not paid 3.5 million then I agree Tyson.
