I've seen this one thrown around elsewhere. What do you say?
-C Adam Henrique
-D Jake Muzzin
27 Mar 2017 22:05:05
Since top 4 dmen seem to be the most coveted player now, and you can argue Muzzin is a very capable number 2, I think Jersey adds maybe a 2nd or decent prospect capable of being a being a 3rd liner.
27 Mar 2017 22:40:40
how will new jersey score?
28 Mar 2017 05:49:59
He'll no from LA. We need help on the Wings first and foremost, and Henrique doesn't have the speed to shift from centre to wing. I would love to have Henrique on the 3rd line role and everything because we need one of those too, but not at the expense of Jake Muzzin.
25 Mar 2017 03:22:41
A crazy idea I had.
NOTE* These are just the bases. Not saying that they would go 1 for 1 for each other just the main parts of the deal.
- Jake Muzzin
- Gabriel Landeskog
Colorado needs defence. LA was potential trading partners with Colorado during the trade-deadline times.
Muzzin is on a great contract around 4.3 million until 2019-20
Landeskog fits what L.A is looking for. Physical guy that scorers goals. Since Gaborik isn't producing Landy could get more ice-time.
Muzzin, Johnson, Barrie, Zadarov as top 4.
25 Mar 2017 03:56:02
Colorado would want a younger d man as they are rebuilding.
25 Mar 2017 04:52:24
There not really rebuilding. They have a fairly decent top 6 although they'd have to fill Landeskogs spot. And that top 4 is pretty solid. If there first rounder is NHL ready and with this trade they should have a solid team IMO.
25 Mar 2017 05:22:36
Xcing it's not like Muzzin is 33 or anything. Like he's 28 with 3 good years and he is a definite top 4 d-man. Probably a number 2 Defensemen, but I'd like to see what he could do on a team w out a Superstar like Drew Doughty. Tbh I'd rather it be Martinez because Muzzin's a more complete package and Landeskog has had some off years the last 2 seasons.
25 Mar 2017 07:16:52
@Xcing just because they are horrible doesn't mean they are rebuilding.
They need a solid defence and maybe 1-2 more scorers. (Rantanen might score 45+ Points next season)
Arizona is in a rebuild.
They acquired Lawson Crouse just to take on Dave Bolland's contract. THAT'S rebuilding. They took Datsyuk's contract for like a pick I think. THAT'S rebuilding.
They didn't trade any of their core pieces during the deadline.
25 Mar 2017 13:39:21
Are you telling me it's in Colorados best interest to trade a young piece for a player in his prime? Colorado is looking to the future and not the next couple of years. While they might not be full blown rebuilders they are focusing on the future hence looking for younger d men. Also Sakic said they want a young d man in return so.
21 Mar 2017 22:37:53
Nathan Beaulieu, 2nd round pick, Daniel Audette
Montreal gets a top 4 lhd, while LA gets someone cheaper and younger, and pick, and potential 3rd line centre.
22 Mar 2017 00:01:09
No way from tl. Beaulieu alone is still a no.
22 Mar 2017 04:23:51
No from LA what the heck? 😂😂 Marty has 4 more years at 4 million dollars! He's a steal of a contract (can't say that about a lot of Kings), great puck mover, nice shot, no way we move him for beaulieu and a potential 3rd liner.
22 Mar 2017 11:12:28
Martinez isn't that good and Beaulieu is only 24 and is playing good. The guy either plays really good or really crapy. But once he gets that balance his play is going to get better and his playing good with Jamie B the newbie. Martinez is good but Beaulieu has the potential to be better.
22 Mar 2017 11:21:30
I think LA would take this deal honestly. They need to get younger and recoup draft picks, because they've basically emptied the farm over the last 5 years. Face it, Kempe being the best prospect is not a good thing at all.
22 Mar 2017 17:01:01
Lol Martinez is a solid top 4 Dman on just about any team. He would surely fetch more then this.
11 Mar 2017 18:16:46
Kings trade Gaborik, Brown and a 1st round pick to Dallas for Lehtonen, Spezza.
11 Mar 2017 19:38:55
There is no way Dallas would ever do that.
13 Mar 2017 13:41:01
Dallas wouldn't do it cap wise but Johnny quick, Ben bishop and Kari lehtonen? That's exactly what every team wants. $16 million tied up in 3 goalies when only one can play at a time. It's not like stacking a D core when each guy can play 25 min a night for you lol.
28 Feb 2017 18:53:09
To la kings: duchene
To clorado: martinez, mersch, 1 round pick 2017, 3 round pick 2018 and king
28 Feb 2017 14:56:37
To la kings: sharp
To dallas: martinez
28 Feb 2017 15:51:29
Why would LA give up a long term Dman for a rental player?
Sharp = 3rd or 4th rounder only. Not an established long term signed rostered Dman.
Are you sure you didn't mean Tom Gilbert instead of Martinez?
28 Feb 2017 16:28:19
Thank u for the laugh I needed it after Granlund embarrassed my team with that beauty OT goal yesterday.
28 Feb 2017 16:30:04
Also Glibert plays in Washington FairTraded4All.
28 Feb 2017 16:55:08
OOps. yes you're right. I read the salary retention line on the cap site and forgot he went to Washington for a conditional pick.
27 Feb 2017 18:52:52
LW - Phil Varone $0.700
RW - Teddy Purcell $0.800(50% Retained)
Dorion has said he wants to add a veteran winger, Teddy Purcell had his best years under Guy Boucher.
28 Feb 2017 00:10:56
I would have done this instead of the burrows for Dahlen deal lol but doesn't look likely now.
27 Feb 2017 18:10:39
To la kings: sharp(2 mil retired)
To dallas: andreof and martinez
To la kings: vrbata
To arizona : king, mersch and 3 round pick 2017
26 Feb 2017 23:25:04
Theres chatter that the kings want a goalie? How does this sound?
Peter Budaj (who played admireably for a goalie who was supposed to be done in the NHL)
2017 2nd Round Pick
Then Kings dump Purcell anywhere for ANYTHING.
is it fair? Idk, i just felt like budajs value may be higher after the performance he's had - and brodzinski and a second is a nice addition for a goalie whod probabky walk in free agency.
27 Feb 2017 00:10:21
hey i wasnt too far off lmao. i was hearing the Bishop to LAK all over twitter and decided to post right before the trade was finalized. well see how the kings do with this trade - i don't like it for them, but whatever.
Also, why did you do Budaj like that? poor guy stood on his head lmao.
27 Feb 2017 00:14:46
They got him for much less 😂.
27 Feb 2017 02:36:59
Buyers market. Needed to get something. Not saying i'm happy with return but they seem high on Cernak and its better than nothing. Market just flooded for goaltenders thanks to expansion.
26 Feb 2017 19:48:43
To la kings: kane and franson
To winnipig: gaborik, martinez and 3 round pick
26 Feb 2017 21:11:44
Do you mean Buffalo.
26 Feb 2017 21:17:07
Buffalo? Try starting with the right teams first.
26 Feb 2017 21:36:27
Why does wpg do that 3rd end would have to be 1st.
26 Feb 2017 23:06:59
No from Buffalo because of Gaboriks contract. Way to many year left and so much $$.
23 Feb 2017 19:21:55
To la kings: evander kane and 3 round pick 2017
To winnipig: alec martinez, dustin brown (2.4 mil retired) and mcnabb
23 Feb 2017 19:51:39
Second guy thinking Kane is still with Jets.
23 Feb 2017 20:27:20
Lol nah think it's the same poster haha.
22 Feb 2017 17:35:46
To la kings:evander kane
To winnipig:alec martinez, 3 round pick 2017 and 5 round pick 2017
22 Feb 2017 19:12:31
? . . You mean Buffalo I hope.
21 Feb 2017 19:15:44
To la kings: duchene
To colorado: toffoli and martinez
21 Feb 2017 19:19:52
21 Feb 2017 19:30:28
I think LA is giving up too much.
I think the asking price for Duchene is way too high. He's only a second line centre or a first line winger in this league. He only has 2 more years of control. I would hold out till next year. Colorado will be in the same mess and you can pick Duchene up at a rental price or maybe sign him next summer.
21 Feb 2017 20:10:13
Sorry he has 3 more years of control. Still i think the asking price is way too high.
21 Feb 2017 20:27:24
That's not even close to what Colorado wants.
21 Feb 2017 20:41:20
Man I don't want them to do this.
21 Feb 2017 10:45:21
LA: Brayden McNabb, and Jeff Zatkoff
PIT: Tristan Jarry, Cameron Gaunce and conditional 2017 4th round pick.
*condition is that if Pens win cup pick becomes a 3rd.
LA needs to replenish their goaltending depth especially if Quick is going to become injury prone (2 major ones in the last 4 seasons) . Jarry could be a fringe starter, but I see him definitely being a backup in the NHL and a better one then Jeff Zatkoff who's sucked this year. Gaunce translates to be a good bottom pairing player.
The Kings need to move one of McNabb or Forbort before the expansion draft or they'll lose them for nothing. I pick McNabb because he's older, and he has another year of term which teams will like.
Pens need another top 4 D since Maataa went out with injury and McNabb is good at playing with very mobile D-men like Deew Doughty and Alec Martinez, so he should be able to play with Kris Letang or Trevor Daley.
21 Feb 2017 15:08:55
Pens have like $100,000 in cap space I think, gunna be difficult to make any move, I imagine they couldn't afford this deal, Pens have zero use for Zatkoff I'd imagine but solid proposal.
21 Feb 2017 15:48:35
Pens actually have about $5.1 mil at the deadline due to prorated salaries and IR, so they could easily fit thia.
21 Feb 2017 05:20:57
Wanna go a little off the board and wondering if this makes some sense.
Kings: Brown + 2 2nds (17&18)
My reasoning is that while coyotes are wanting to trade away lots of vets, they won't have a lot to play with the young guys. LA gets rid of Browns contract, and send a couple 2nds to get Doan as a rental player. I know Arizona gets Browns contract but he can provide that veteran presence and leadership for the young guys and like I said they still get a couple picks.
Just wondering if this makes any sense for Arizona, as they do have a lot of cap space.
I also understand that it could be dumb and they probs don't want browns contract.
21 Feb 2017 06:26:57
$5,875,000 is the Annual average salary of Dustin Brown (5 more years) The price is going to be Higher (Tanner pearson++) Brown have the worst contract in the league.
21 Feb 2017 19:02:33
So you're thinkin Brown + Pearson + 2 2nds for Doan?
20 Feb 2017 15:37:40
I had a 1st originally but it seems like too much for Vanek imo, now maybe not enough?
20 Feb 2017 15:50:55
I would say it's still to much. Take out the third and maybe have a low pick coming back from Detroit but overall not bad.
20 Feb 2017 15:54:38
@Xcing yeah that seems reasonable, I like that modification over my original post honestly.
20 Feb 2017 17:42:26
Vanek has 37 points in 46 games and he only carries a 2.6 cap. He'll most likely get a first round (a late one) or a 2nd + a prospect. Holland is a smart man he will get a good deal for Vanek.
20 Feb 2017 17:56:26
He is a quality player however no team will trade a first for him if he is not extended. He may leave in FA, there are only 20 something games left, and he is older so I think a second and a decent prospect is a good price for Vanek not extended.
17 Feb 2017 06:58:25
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.
