Los Angeles Kings Rumours
Use our rumours form to send us nhl trade rumors.
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.
05 Aug 2016 23:02:07
Re-posting a trade I saw the other day that I thought was interesting.
- Derrik Pouliot
Kings trade :
- Tanner Pearson
06 Aug 2016 00:50:23
I mean we could really use Pouliot, it's just that we need scoring and Pearson's improved every season and I'm expecting around 45-50 points next season and that could be to valuable to give up.
06 Aug 2016 02:11:55
Don't like this trade.
Because Lucic left The Kings could use all of their left wingers. And Tanner Pearson has been improving every season according to KingLover.
06 Aug 2016 02:13:24
Would that work cap wise? Also I think the pens need the defence more than the scoring, and I think la needs the scoring more than the d.
06 Aug 2016 02:19:50
I mean I'd do it if we got a guarantee from like a FA like Jori Hudler that he'd sign with us to replace Pears, but Idk.
06 Aug 2016 04:59:18
With the departure of Lucic and Brown declining even further Pearson is definitely more valuable to the kings in my eyes.
06 Aug 2016 05:21:16
You stole this trade.
06 Aug 2016 05:21:31
It was on HF Boards.
06 Aug 2016 05:42:10
Read my first sentence again. Nice try though buddy. Keep posting your Nylander for Lindholm trades haha.
06 Aug 2016 05:57:27
That's not even bad tho.
06 Aug 2016 06:07:03
I agree it's not bad, for the leafs. Terrible for ducks.
06 Aug 2016 17:13:08
So your saying that if Lindholm was on the Carolina Hurricanes deep D Corps and Toronto offered the Future 30 goal scorer you think the canes would Decline? It's not a bad trade in terms of pure value. Maybe in positional needs tho.
06 Aug 2016 19:45:39
Yeah the value is there but Penguins should probably keep Pouliot as they need D not forwards.
05 Aug 2016 19:07:05
IMO with Hudler still on the market I think the Kings should swipe him up cheaply with there lack of depth on the LW.
So here's my proposals
Sign Hudler to a 1 year 1.5 mil contract.
Then trade Rob Scudari to the the jets for a 7th round pick. He'd be pretty good on there bottom pair.
05 Aug 2016 19:31:53
nobody wants rob scuderi.
05 Aug 2016 19:44:20
Colts right we really only brought Scuds back for sentimental value. And as of now LA would have the cap space to sign Hidler as they have 1.7 in space so we can keep Scuds as well. Hudler may command a little more than 1.5 though.
05 Aug 2016 19:44:36
He's still better then Shatenkurk at defense.
05 Aug 2016 20:08:25
Didn't Scudrari retire?
05 Aug 2016 20:11:58
Hudler I read is waiting after vesey is signed cause there is teams he wants to go to that are waiting to see if they get vesey. And I'm sure he'll get 1.5 mil for 1 year.
05 Aug 2016 20:13:59
That's a pretty good deal to get Hudler considering how damn good he was two seasons ago. Idk how he hasn't been picked up yet but if any team can get him for that low of price that'll be a steal.
05 Aug 2016 21:03:29
Meant more than 1.5mil.
05 Aug 2016 21:58:43
Bardown Scuderi is aweful and doesn't even rank in top 60 but yeah better than shatty who ranks top 30 keep up your biased rants and you stupid trades. You lose credibility by the post.
05 Aug 2016 23:06:03
Scuderi was a pylon last year. He's old and getting slower and worse. He's had a respectable career but he's nothing more then an AHL top 4 option at this stage in his career.
05 Aug 2016 23:37:31
Jets have AHL dmen better than Scuderi. A few of them. As for Hudler, I think he is waiting for a specific location or two, otherwise I think he would have signed a month ago. i'm sure he has seen some decent offers money-wise but that at this point of his career that isn't his priority.
06 Aug 2016 02:42:16
Shatenkurk is more of a ECHL star or a AHL call up not really a NHL player.
06 Aug 2016 05:02:48
I'd say Hudler could get around 2.5-3m if not more depending on the interest in him, scoring winger that can play both sides like him should be considered a good pickup. If anything whoever signs him can just trade him at the deadline for pick/ prospects if things don't go as planned.
05 Aug 2016 16:24:38
Toronto: William Nylander
Anaheim: Hampus Lindholm
I took this Idiea from KingsLover I think it Benefits both teams. Toronto gets a young top Dman and just Imagine Nylander with Getzlaf and Perry.
05 Aug 2016 17:07:45
Try marner +
05 Aug 2016 17:37:59
American Tank I wouldn't trade Marner for anyone on the Ducks.
05 Aug 2016 18:01:29
Nylander won't get Lindholm straight up. I don't think the Ducks would be interested in a gaggle of c/ d prospects or older overpaid 4th liners either.
05 Aug 2016 18:12:52
I think that's a little crazy if you wouldn't want to trade Marner for "anyone" on the ducks, but I would forsure try and trade Nylander before Marner.
05 Aug 2016 19:35:57
Yah McJesus I meant I'd want to see what he turns into it'd take a crazy over payment like Johnny Hockey.
05 Aug 2016 20:15:56
Yeah for sure.
05 Aug 2016 21:02:27
I'm sorry but Bardown Beauty your proposals got to be some of the worst ideas I've seen on this site.
05 Aug 2016 21:05:04
Leafs won't give up their top prospects. They're rebuilding, they are going to build from within their organization. Makes no sense to swap players like this.
05 Aug 2016 22:30:25
BJ I'm going to stick up for him on this one, atleast its not the usual 7 for 2 proposals, and he's actually got some good pieces going both ways. I'd rather have Lindholm anyday over Nylander, yeah, but atleast its Nylander and not kapanen 2 2nd round picks Hunwick and the other usuals.
05 Aug 2016 23:23:11
If you wanna stick up for him that's fine. Just read his other proposals, I don't need to say anything else. Nylander for Lindholm is not even close. May as well just put Kappanen for Fowler. I agree at least it's not the classic quantity for quality trade but still.
06 Aug 2016 01:53:18
lindholm is a stud and marner is highly skilled but undersized and hasn't played agame in the nhl yet
as for nylander its not even close.
06 Aug 2016 02:52:00
BJ Nylander=Joulevi in terms of value do you agree with that at least because I think either A. Underrate B. Hate the Leafs or C. Overvalue Lindholm.
Also I try and make my trades Far fetched block buster deals with both teams giving good value.
26 Jul 2016 02:44:14
Toronto: JVR and Josh Lievo
Anahiem: 2017 1st and 2018 1st
Toronto: JVR and Valiev
Islanders: Dal Colle, Sorkin and 2017 2nd
Minnasota: Dumba and 2nd
Toronto: JVR and 2nd
Kings: Tyler Toffli
Montreal: Mccaron, Fucal and 2nd 2017
Toronto: JVR and Polak (Deadline Deal)
Ottawa: Cici and 2nd
Flyers: Sanhiem and 2nd
Washington: Marcus Johannson and Ilya Samsonov
JVR dosent really fit the Leafs age sense he will be heading somewhere else in 2 years because he dosent fit into Toronto. The May as well just trade him for Max value.
26 Jul 2016 04:33:44
Id do the Montreal trade, wouldn't be easy to play against McCarron on the Leafs but that LW hole needs to be filled.
26 Jul 2016 05:53:21
Samsonov won't be getting traded from Caps, but JVR could be pretty dope on Capitals and could really give them that extra push for the cup.
26 Jul 2016 07:12:14
McJesus who would caps add instead then?
26 Jul 2016 07:36:51
I personally don't think they wanna get rid of Johansson, so I don't know who else I would include. I still think JVR should stay on leafs idk why nobody wants him anymore.
But idk let's just keep what you had. Maybe Jo + O'Brien or a different B prospect. And I say B because i still don't think they would want to trade away Johansson. But they definitely won't be trading away a top goalie prospect throughout the whole league, that's too much/ they won't trade him.
26 Jul 2016 09:04:45
Absolutely no chance JVR could get Toffoli. Toffolli is younger and already almost as good as JVR.
26 Jul 2016 09:23:51
In fact I'd argue he's just as good right now if anyone's up for it lol.
26 Jul 2016 11:18:27
Toffoli is far and away better than JVR.
26 Jul 2016 11:18:27
Toffoli is far and away better than JVR.
26 Jul 2016 14:33:23
Barddownbeauty why do you think the Leafs would want to trade JVR to anyone? Do you know something that no one else knows about JVR that is the reason he is being peddled at least 5 times a day on this site? If he is that expendable why would other teams want him unless they can steal him for a 2nd round pick. I'm not knocking any of your trade proposals, I'm just curious as to why is he Leaf nations go to trade player? I and many others that post replies, don't believe he is worth as much as leaf fans think he is.
26 Jul 2016 17:32:30
No way you get Toff for JVR based off age and the fact that JVR will walk in 2 years.
26 Jul 2016 22:26:38
Because JVR has a lot of value and is a UFA in 2 years IslandJet the leafs don't need him.
16 Jun 2016 18:29:03
Tyson Barrie is no longer on the trade block : ( Joe Sakic stated. And also Kopitar was named the captain of the LA Kings which I think was a really good move by the team.
Anyways, other confirmed news is Flames making hard case for Fluery, and Penguins not offering Schultz a contract.
That's it from your daily news man, McJesus.
16 Jun 2016 18:41:13
Also Ward signed with Carolina.
16 Jun 2016 18:50:07
Not buying Barrie off the market, Avs said a very similar thing about O'Reilly and he ended up trading, this could be an attempted to raise his value.
16 Jun 2016 19:04:15
Sakic was pretty adamant about Barrie staying with the Avs but i guess anything can happen, if they get a good deal then why not trade him right?
16 Jun 2016 21:32:13
Cam Ward did resign with Canes? I read yesterday they were talking about a 2 or 3 year deal. It's done now? What's the Term and $$?
16 Jun 2016 21:50:15
Only way I could see Fleury being shipped out is for Wideman+ cause Calgary would have to move some big $$$ out.
16 Jun 2016 22:00:38
Yep. Ward resigns for 1 years $3.3M per year. That's almost just what I wanted Oilers to try and get him for. Damn.
16 Jun 2016 22:28:54
5.6 for 2 years?
I honestly can't remember the money but it's 2 year and it was like 3.something mil per year.
16 Jun 2016 23:02:57
3,5 m this year and 3,1 M the next.
17 Jun 2016 04:23:28
I think the GM and the coach or in disagreement about Barrie, Sakic likes him because he is a good young player, probably their best d-man, but Roy for some weird reason hates him.
12 Jun 2016 14:32:41
LA: Dustin Brown (with 25% remaining salary retained by kings) and Kurtis MacDermid
MacDermid is large, young no-nonsense defender who enjoys fighting to stick up for a teammate. He has a growing offensive talent. Former teammate of McDavids.
Brown has a chip on his shoulder with the captains 'C stripped of him. He hasn't had the best couple seasons and needs a new start like yak, age is the only question.
12 Jun 2016 16:07:09
Yakupov for Brown? Lol.
12 Jun 2016 16:19:45
Awful. Brown is on the worst contract in the league. Toffoli/ Pearson has to be added on to him to just get a late round pick, and even then, I don't think teams would accept.
12 Jun 2016 16:38:40
Oil should just keep yak instead of that.
12 Jun 2016 16:53:49
D3vsL1fe every thing you say is biased you highly overrated your own players and you extremely underrate Edmonton's and Toronto's Players. I'd just like to say that. But anyway Brown's contract is better than Clarkson's at least Brown is a great character and is some what useful where as Clarkson is horrible.
12 Jun 2016 19:10:40
Please let this happen 😃😃😃😃😃.
12 Jun 2016 19:27:25
Was D3 suggesting oilers add Clarkson?! You got to be kidding me. Big frame, soft as a pussycat and just as useful.
13 Jun 2016 18:31:38
Brown's contract is untradeable. Lombardi has already tried shipping him out, no one wants a declining 30-year old on the books for 6 more years at an embarrassing cap hit.
08 Jun 2016 00:58:15
So with reports of Milan Lucic and my Kings not going to be able to come to an agreement (because of term), I'm thinking of a player that we could acquire (via trade) to replace him. I picked Scotty Hartnell of Columbus.
CBJ; Scotty Hartnell + William Karlsson
LAK: Dwight King + Nick Shore + Jordan Nolan + Alex Lintuniemi + conditional 2017 2nd + 2018 3rd round pick.
*Condition is if Kings make playoffs the pick is a 2nd, if not it becomes a 3rd.
The Jackets save 1.6 mil (and that's without Karlsson's new contract) plus they can ship off King for additional pick (s) . Shore is a kind of defensive player that could help a poor defensive team like Columbus. Blue Jackets do the Kings a favour and take Jordan Nolan :) . Lintuniemi is a prospect with a lot of raw talent and was a 2nd rounder 2 years ago. He's got good size and could become a potential #4-6 d-man.
Because of Hartnell's age, price and the fact that he doesn't mesh well with Torts I think the Jackets would do it for this package. Plus Columbus is real close to the cap, so this will definitely help them with that problem.
08 Jun 2016 05:18:36
This would probably depend on how much Jackets value William Karlson. Decent offer though.
04 Jun 2016 20:48:50
Don't think Lucic will resign with the Kings.
Lucic wants a 4m+ contract.
While the Kings need to resign more players for depth.
- Trevor Lewis
- Kris Versteeg
- Jamie McBain
- Brayden McNabb
- Luke Schenn
- Jhonas Enroth
All of these are good NHL players.
On July 1st i can see him going to:
Agree or Disagree?
05 Jun 2016 00:13:16
4? 😂😂 it's probably going to be 6-7 mil for 6 years and the Kings just resigned McNabb to a 2 year 3.4 mil contract. Enroth won't be back after he made his little scene about not being played that much. Versteeg was not a good fit for LA and only played like a handful of good games for the Kings. Lewey, McBain, and Schenn are the only ones I can see us resigning. Schenn will be the most expensive so he probs would get let go. Lewis would cost around 2mil or the next 2-3 years and McBain will be cheap to resign (under a mil)
05 Jun 2016 04:40:43
I didn't really follow LA this year, so whatever KingsLover says I'm just going to agree.
04 Jun 2016 19:14:15
Kings need to bolster their goaltending depth and the Hawks signed Swedish star Lars Johansson.
CHI: Scott Darling + 2016 4th round pick
LAK: 2017 3rd roumd pick + 2016 5th round pick.
05 Jun 2016 02:22:35
Why do Kings need to bolster goaltending depth? They lean on Quick year after year, hence Bernier and Jones being moved while still barely-used backups. They're better off picking from the FA's this year. Khudobin would be a good pickup for them.
29 May 2016 17:13:20
LA brown 20% retained Kempe
Tor gets a guy that's won on a bad contract but get a good prospect 4 the 4 years extra they take on
LA gets lupal with only 2 years left instead of 6 years when healthy lupal produces if unhealthy kings ltir him and get the cap space.
29 May 2016 17:31:15
Just awful and not well thought out at all.
Why would Toronto take on a dead beat contract for 6 more years after they just unloaded 2 in Phaneuf and Clarkson?!?
This would set them so far back after all the progress they've made over the past year and a half. Kempe is not worth the burden that we would have to take on with Browns contract.
The leafs are FAR better off to put Lupul on Robidas Island (LTIR) and save the cap hit for the next 2 years.
Really, really bad, dude. Really bad.
29 May 2016 17:57:00
Kempe is LA's best prospect they aren't giving him up for Lupul are you nuts!?
29 May 2016 18:20:24
this is simply horrible. never thought anyone would ever try to justify something like kempe for lupul. guess i should lower my expectations.
29 May 2016 19:56:58
I new it was awful just wanted to get the hip critical people going.
28 May 2016 03:07:18
Dustin Brown has been told he is no longer the captain of the LA Kings. Trade or Buyouy coming up? Also who will be next captain of the Kings? I'd guess Kopitar is the Captain with Carter/ Doughty/ Greene as the A's.
28 May 2016 04:51:29
i don't think it'd be a trade; who would want that contract? but you never know, there's certainly been more unlikely trades made. maybe they just want to hand it off to kopitar/ doughty with the hope of less pressure on Brown helping him to get his game back a bit. he won't be the 50+ point player he was a few years ago, but less pressure and time commitment may allow him to focus solely on playing and make him a bit more effective.
28 May 2016 05:14:12
Yeah good point Shankar, could be similar too what San Jose did a few years back with both Marleau and Big Joe I think. Then again it could be a trade, Toronto moved BOTH Clarkson and Phaneuf with no salary retained so I believe anyone can be traded.
28 May 2016 05:40:28
Kopitar will be captain, how can he not with his own contract to lol also leading the team in points for so many consecutive years.
28 May 2016 07:02:17
for sure a trade could happen, i'd just be more surprised with a trade than him staying and the captaincy going to kopitar.
28 May 2016 22:04:36
I love Brownie, but we really need to buy him out.
23 May 2016 19:02:37
LA: Brown Gaborik
Tor : rights to michael grabner and brad boyes and pa parenteau
(cap) the kings lose cap and the leafs get expierince, but i doubt the leafs would do this.
23 May 2016 19:05:56
That doesn't get brown let alone gab.
23 May 2016 19:19:34
Brown has nagitive value. Future considerations>Brown his contract is terrible.
23 May 2016 20:00:26
Nobody wants any of those players from either team.
24 May 2016 00:28:53
Leafs17 Gaborik isn't bad honestly I see the leafs making a trade dumping unwanted players for a player like him like they did with Grabner.
24 May 2016 06:01:00
No vbbb's Gaborik is not bad but he plays less than Lupul. The leafs don't even get a pick in the deal, how does this help them? They get stuck with Brown's nasty contract for life and 36 year old, injury prone Gaborik is the incentive. LA does need to unload salary but this is not the deal. LA would have to retain salary or offer a pick/ prospect for the leafs to even consider. Brown's contract wouldn't be a big deal right now, but it would cripple them by the time they're ready to compete.
12 May 2016 04:01:23
EDM- 4th overall
ARI- 7th overall, Henrick Samuelsson
The 22nd pick or 32nd pick could be added for value. But Arizona gets there "hometown kid" I don't know if it even means anything but hey pinball or paolozza will like it. Edmonton get a big right wing that we don't have any of and he also played for the oil kings.
12 May 2016 05:38:45
they're not getting matthews at 4th what are you talking about.
12 May 2016 06:12:42
What kind of troll is this?
12 May 2016 06:20:13
Maybe Tkachuk? He's from Arizona aswell I believe .
12 May 2016 07:00:10
Yeah Tkachuk. Lol I guess I shoulda specified, my bad.
12 May 2016 07:48:32
yeah Tkachuk is from Scottsdale Arizona just like Matthews.
12 May 2016 13:02:48
Someone disagreed that Tkachuk isn't from Scottsdale Arz?
Keith Tkachuk Matts Dad played for Arizona then Phoenix and Matt was born there.
So yes jamesvanhockey Matt Tkachuk is the other local boy you are right and yes Arizona would love to Draft Tkachuk but he won't be there unless they Trade down.
12 May 2016 13:18:23
Why would I love it?
12 May 2016 18:47:17
I thought it was you that wanted to trade half of the coyotes for Matthews because he's from there… maybe that was just pinball, my bad again.
19 Apr 2016 14:21:37
1st Round Pick 2016 (Pittsburgh's)
Not such a crazy deal if you look into the Kings Payroll and Cap hit if they want to resign Lucic and LSchenn, they also get a 1st Round Pick this Draft which was Traded to Carolina, Sparks is a Young Goaltender that can learn from Quick to be there Starter in the future, for the Leafs they get a go to Top DMan that is just hitting his prime.
21 Apr 2016 12:50:16
Sparks is a backup I'm not sure he has the ceiling to be a reliable starter. Kadri has a good contract but is a middle 6 center. Not sure the late mid-late first makes up the difference for Doughty. I think they've already conceded to letting Lucia and Schenn go and don't think they'd give up Doughty to keep then.
21 Apr 2016 14:33:54
Lombardi said he wouldn't trade Doughty for any other player in the NHL never mind that package.
21 Apr 2016 15:05:14
Never fails to disappoint, Pinhead. Nice one.
21 Apr 2016 17:07:12
21 Apr 2016 20:28:12
Not so crazy if they want to resign Lucic and Schenn? Yeah, because Schenn >>> Doughty, right? The deluded sheep strikes again with another head-scratcher.
22 Apr 2016 02:54:58
Looks like pinball was smoking the devils lettuce when he posted this.
12 Apr 2016 05:07:21
I could see the oilers making small trades before July first
I can see them trying to unload YAKUPOV and a second rd pick to Tampa for durin
Along with possibly making a few more trades
I could see edmonton coaches asking peter to try to get Burns and I could see edmonton possibly trading their 1st rd pick along with a defensive prospect
I could see the oilers trying to sign
lucic and yandle if the Rangers and kings let them hit the free market
Maroon Mc David Eberle
Hall draisaitl lucic
Dourin Hopkins kassian
Pakarien Letestu Hendricks
If lucic and yandle don't hit the free market I could see the oilers trading with the blue jackets
Edm gets hartnell and Savard cbj gets Eberle and Rinehart
Hartnell McDavid Dourin
Maroon Hopkins Pakarien
Hall draisaitl kassian
Hendricks Letestu karjari
12 Apr 2016 06:06:21
Ebs and griffin for hartnell and savard is this some type of joke?
12 Apr 2016 07:32:52
This is what he could see, but nobody took into consideration that he might be blind.
Yakupov and a second for Drouin is too much
Burns for a young d-man and a potential elite player is too risky considering age difference. I don't see where Yandle fits on the left side. Lucic will be a hard signing for Edmonton and is the last trades joke, April fools was a while back I believe.
12 Apr 2016 11:14:21
My name is BogusTrades lol
Dourin for yak is fair but I'm sure steve over values Dourin and with a second rounder he may take the bait
I honestly think that peter will get 1 D man off the sharks someone todd knows is reliable
And lucic will be very hard to get July 1st but if any one can do it it's our gm
The edm cbj trade is far fetched and ebs and Griff are clearly not enough to get hartnell and Savard. . But a man can dream lol.
12 Apr 2016 12:47:20
Guys Yaks value at the deadline was a second. Yak and a second doesn't get you Drouin at the deadline they were still looking for elite prospects not projects and picks out of the. You won't get Drouin for Yak straight up or for Yak and a second.

I'm just going to throw out here that Drouin had a higher ppg playing fewer minutes than Yak Brian Boyle and JT Brown/ Cedric Paquette as his linemates. Yak score like 10 points in 15 games on a line with McJesus and then 13 points in the other 45 games. Not to mention that since returning Drouin has a goal/ game at both the AHL and NHL level. I don't see how they're really comparable at this stage.
12 Apr 2016 13:59:53
those lines tho.
12 Apr 2016 14:46:29
I'm surprised no one has mentioned cap yet. That clearly looks over and Leon, Mcdavid and Nurse raises are coming in a few short short years.
Plus this proposal all around is pretty bad.
13 Apr 2016 00:17:10
So your saying Yak can produce when he's not on the 3rd line?

Here's the moves I don't wanna say anything more since its long enough but what're your thoughts on how management has done with trades, draft, free agency etc.
24 Mar 2016 20:51:48
bad, bad, bad, bad. Vancouver is in store for a rough future.
24 Mar 2016 21:05:04
Senior Management has poor talent analysis. Nothing positive to say about any of their moves except. Kesler. That Kesler Trade was a massive steal.
25 Mar 2016 00:12:27
Great insight and analysis boys.
25 Mar 2016 00:40:53
A 3rd for Dorsett though 😩.
25 Mar 2016 04:56:48
I know right. Lol he was ok first year but he's nothing special this year. He shouldn't be make more than a Mil.
25 Mar 2016 12:00:26
Now you know what 40+ years of Leaf Trades and Free Agent moves have been like, won't even get into the Drafting.
Vancouver has to fire that whole staff and find good hockey people to rebuild it properly.
25 Mar 2016 23:49:07
Man the Canucks management makes a comedy of errors that has now messed up this organization royally.
26 Mar 2016 01:48:06
It's amazing how many goalies they have moved yet they still manage to have decent depth at the position moving Schneider, luongo, and lack is brutal but they still have demko who looks really good and miller who's more then serviceable. Lots of other clubs would love Just one starter and Vancouver has been throwing them away. Overall lots of the decisions are head scratchers but at least he had a good draft with virtanen, mccann, and demko.
26 Mar 2016 13:10:53
That Shinkaruk move is awful, at least they draft well.
27 Feb 2016 18:54:20
Hearing LA Kings are close to acquiring Justin Schultz and Teddy Purcell. Also earring no roster player coming back to Oilers. Interesting to hear the return? Maybe 2nd+mid round draft pick+Prospect for Schultz an Purcell?
27 Feb 2016 20:31:20
Sounds about right, but isn't la pretty close to the cap?
27 Feb 2016 21:15:59
I forgot to comment on your last question about Nilsson to STL. A buddy of mine has a good friend who works for the Oilers who hears about a lot possible talks on the table. He tipped me off yesterday morning about it, last year he was 3 for 4 correct at deadline and the 4th deal just didn't get done paper work in time. Haha. All he said this year was that Purcell, Shultz and Nillsson are gone for sure. And just maybe Poiliot and Yak, lots of interest in those two but only if a deal blows them away. And possibly Fayne but probably not.
27 Feb 2016 23:26:47
@Yep. Wow that's very cool to have those connections, must say I'm pretty jealous.
28 Feb 2016 04:18:42
Well 3 for 3 this year. I'd love to see Pouliot gone and Fayne. Both over payed for there average to below average play.
28 Feb 2016 05:04:05
and like I said. The other moves aren't for sure what so ever. Would have to be such a good deal they couldn't say no to. Which is unlikely at deadline. More likely in off season.
28 Feb 2016 05:11:01
if pouliot goes then whos the oilers 2nd line left wing, yakapovs too inconsistent one game he's flying the next you can't even see him. i'm all for fayne but he probably has too much term on his contract. korpokoski is someone i would like to see go just so khaira can play he's looked pretty good so far.
28 Feb 2016 05:29:30
I don't know Kassian maybe. They'd need to fill the spot in the offseason. Reinhart for Rychel.
26 Feb 2016 13:50:37
The habs have scouted LA a lot lately :
Mon : Andrei Markov (50% retained), 4th round pick, Joel Hanley
LA : Dwight King, Adrian Kempe, conditionnal 3rd round pick**
** if the kings make it to the final, it becomes a 2nd.
26 Feb 2016 13:58:56
There is noway this happens. Markov is not leaving Montreal. They are stuck with his deteriating play and awful contract!
26 Feb 2016 14:02:05
That won't get you king and Kempe, that's foresure.
26 Feb 2016 15:18:49
In your dreams.
26 Feb 2016 21:29:54
Markov is top 25 in scoring D, ahead of Shattenkirk, Chara, Hamilton, Phaneufs, Rielly, McDonagh, Carlson, Niskanen and Ekblad . doesn't seem like he's done yet.
Markov also hasn't missed a single game due to injury in 4 seasons
He would be a great fit on LA's 2nd pairing.
20 Feb 2016 22:34:48
Last Years Trade:
LA Kings Trade:
Roland McKeown - Unsigned Prospect
1st Round Pick
Carolina Hurricanes Trade:
Andrej Sekera - UFA
This years possible trade:
Colorado Avalanche Trade:
Duncan Siemens - Entry Level Deal
Joey Hishon - RFA
1st Round Pick
3rd Round Pick
Calgary Flames Trade:
Jiri Hudler - UFA
Kris Russell - UFA
*Trade brings in multiple young pieces in for the Flames, as well as picks.
*Gives both Hishon and Siemens a chance to try again after busting on their draft teams
*Gives Colorado two big pieces that will help with a playoff push.
21 Feb 2016 01:21:08
I like that trade for both teams.
21 Feb 2016 02:16:11
No way Colorado does this maybe with out the first.
21 Feb 2016 04:20:28
Its not Terrible I'd do it.
21 Feb 2016 15:58:36
Edmonton has Sekera.
21 Feb 2016 16:00:38
Nvm did look at thread that closely.
