I expect Nashville to be relatively quiet at tomorrows deadline, but a small trade is likely to be expected. I think they will acquire one small piece for the offense.

To: Nashville
F Justin Williams

To: Los Angeles
F Colton Scissons
2016 5th Round Pick

Me would fit in to the 2nd line or 3rd Line very well, and is a nice addoyon for a team looking to win the cup


Don't think LA trades Williams. There a team that's going to make a cup run so IMO they trade any top players


La would want more for Williams he is a proven playoff performer. Also I wouldn't considered this a small trade if this went down it would probably big the biggest trade of the deadline.


Even though williams is pending ufa, kings are very much in the hunt, and I don't see them trading any important assets


01 Mar 2015 20:09:56
"small trade" xD


Lol "small trade" eh


Lol. I guess that isn't "small" but compared to the Yandle, Fans on AMD other deals this trade season its kind of small I guess.






28 Feb 2015 16:29:35
To Los Angeles: Jokinen
To Toronto: 7th Round Pick 2015


You must be Jokinen, right? He's all yours to keep.


You've been waiting all week for that proposal haven't you?

Jokinen will move, not sure if it's to LA though




25 Feb 2015 22:39:10

Via bob Mckenzie -

La kings are very close to acquiring Andrej Sekera from the canes. Hearing a prospect (Roland Mckewon) & 2015 LA 1st going back to the canes

Kings trade 1st & Mckewon
Hurricanes trade Sekera

Sorry for spelling of kings player


What an over payment really. Wow. And I thought Winnik was overpayed.




25 Feb 2015 18:48:02
To kings: stajan bollig 3rd
To cgy : Richards


How much retained?


Hope so




25 Feb 2015 13:03:25
Down To the Wire

NYI: Bailey, Leggio, 4th and 6th rounders 2015
EDM: Eberle

Picks for the Oilers and a good young prospect for their ongoing rebuild, and an immediate offensive impact for the Isles. Changes need to happen in Edmonton.

BUF: Stewart
BOS: Paille, Ferlin, 4th rounder 2015

More scoring grit for the Bruins, and Buffalo can benefit from the deeper bench.

LA: McBain, Andreoff, 1st rounder 2015
ARI: Yandle

Is Yandle worth the dismissal of young talent and a 1st rounder? The Kings definitely don't mind, and the Coyotes would appreciate the prospects and decent slotted draft pick.

ARI: Vermette
MTL: De La Rose, Bournival, 4th rounder 2015

Sticking with Arizona, more young talent and potential for the likely to not resign Vermette. Not to mention the Habs get their much coveted french player.

TOR: Winnik
CHI: Rundblad, 3rd rounder 2015

With Kane sidelined for the next little while, the Blackhawks will need at least an affordable power forward. Winnik is a good choice, and Chicago won't mind throwing the Leafs the above.

CAR: Sekara
DAL: Ritchie, 3rd rounder 2015
TB: Connolly, 3rd rounder 2015

I still feel Sekara will be in Pittsburgh after the deadline comes and goes, but Dallas and Tampa Bay could be other decent fits for Sekara.


CBJ: Wisniewski
DET: Helm, Andersson, 5th rounder 2015

Wisniewski is an invaluable asset that the red Wings would love to acquire, however Columbus would need a good return to part ways at this time. The Blue Jackets are keeping their intentions with Wisniewski hush-hush, but Detroit NEEDS another defenceman if they want to be competitive for the remainder of the season and into the playoffs.

SJ: Niemi
VAN: Markstrom, Dorsett

With Miller out until at least the playoffs, The Canucks might be in the market for a seasoned tender to help carry the load with Lack. Niemi has been rumored to be getting shopped around as the Sharks will most likely pass on resigning him if he stays for another failed playoff run.


SJ: Thornton or Marleau
CGY: Ramo, Glencross, Granlund, 2nd rounder 2015
NYI: Bailey, Mouillierat, Strait, 4th rounder 2015
OTT: Neil, Chiasson, 2nd and 4th rounders 2015

I'd like to see either Thornton or Marleau, or even both, moved at the deadline. Get some prospects in return for players long rumored to be on the move. Flames, Isles (pending Eberle trade becomes a reality) and Sens could all benefit from having one of the two Shark players. Calgary would be the better fit of these three teams, plenty of cap space and a good young pool of talent that Thornton or Marleau could help take to the next level.


The sharks could like the Calgary one but the others wouldn't interest them. And I doubt they waive for Calgary. Also a 4th liner and AHL/backup for Niemi?


I'd rather have Markstrom and Dorsett, Lack can hold down the fort till Miller gets back


Habs should send the Sabres Thomas & return 2nd rounder from the Gorges deal for Stewart & Mitchel

Boris Bagel

Bournival is french too


@Boris Bagel, it does not look as Thomas will ever be a great NHL player, but why not, Stewart and Mitchell for a 2nd and Thomas.


Thomas sucks, habs can keep him.

Call ups) Pakarinen, Fraser, Hamilton,

Seidenberg Seabrook
Klefbom Schultz
Ference Fayne
Nurse Aulie


I know this is all talk and bs cause these moves will likely never happen. But Edmonton has so much prospects, high draft picks and roster players that can trade and make there team a playoff team by next fall. It's most likely not dead on with the trade value but most of those trades are pretty close to all being in the ball park. Even if Edmonton pulled off any of those 2 trades, they would be a playoff team. Doesn't necessarily have to be the same players but the same type of playing style and grit and determination and work ethic that those players have. it's sad cause Edmonton management is got to be one of the worst I've ever seen in any franchise. Oilers management is to afraid to trade players but they don't realize that it's got to be done. Every team has to trade away players that they wish they didn't have to. Look what happened with kings when they had to trade away jack Johnson for Jeff carter just to get to the next step. They never ever thought they would trade Johnson but if it's going to take u to the next step then it's got to be done. I think Edmonton will make the playoffs next year under Todd Nelson and I really think the player we draft will be a impact player and will help us get to the next step. hall an yakupov need to be a 30-40 goal man, Hopkins eberle has to be a 60/80 point man. i'm a heart and soul guy for the Edmonton Oilers. There's nothing I want more then to make the right moves for present and the future but it's got to happen now. Teams are breaking down and need to rebuild and some in cap space probs. this is oilers chance to snatch a couple of players that will help u win NOW.
Edmonton has prolly the top 10 best depth forwards. About 28 the place on defence. 30th in goal. 27th at centre ice (17th in 2015/2016 season). If you can get any of those to top 20 then I think we have a legitimate chance because our offence will be bombing on teams cause of the speed we have and the transition game we play.

No complaining here cause complained line is close. But if you have anything to add OR take away then feel free.


Chicago can get a much better return for Seabrook. One of Edmonton's top D prospects like Nurse would have to come back with that first rounder. Lander is a fringe player and Gernat may never play in the NHL. If Edmonton turned around and made a playoff run next year, Bowman would look like an idiot for trading an elite right shot experienced dman for two mediocre players and a late 1st.


That TB goalie one is so bad


Oilers lose that Boston trade bad. If Hall were to be traded Hamilton will be included, I don't think he will or should be. I get that you want players with grit but you don't give up a ppg player for that.

Rather sign Petry or trade for picks. Plus we'll have Nuge, Draisaitl, maybe McEichel, Roy, Gordon down the middle. No need for Helm.

Probably far off for vasilevskiy. The oilers do have some good prospects and picks in there but no sense for Tampa to do it.

Probably have to add for seabrook. But could actually see that happening. Maybe add a roster d for him


For the top goalie prospect in the world and a young top 9 potentially top 6 on a rebuilding team forward you'll have to give something of actual value.


Tampa says no easily there not even close to what it would take to get that kind of package.


21 Feb 2015 20:46:20
So future #1 goalie and future top6 guy get TB a 2nd a 3rd and 2 meh meh prospects? Sure.



Not a chance Connolly is a top 6 forward. He was drafted high but hasn't shown anything to prove that he will play 2nd line minutes

Regardless though the trade is still brutal.


22 Feb 2015 02:53:04
Trade 1 is garbage
Trade 2 the return for Petry will be hogher than helm - perhaps helm and a 4th? But I suspect it will be a 2nd and a prospect, maybe not Detroit.
Trade 3 - Maybe the worst of the biunch. Tampa Bay will not make a goaltending move until after next year. And then it will most likely be Bishop who is moved.
Trade 4 - Seabrook may be moved, I doubt it, he's a core player and I see others moved instead (sharp+) - but I don't think he wants Edmonton and if he's not resigning then the first isn't happening.


22 Feb 2015 09:32:02
@Stammer: We've already had that a couple of times on this site.
Connolly was and is stuck behind other great forwards. He's currently playing fourth line minutes with Boyle and Morrow. Not exactly guys that get you much points.
As a proof for his skill, he's top 30 in even strength goals scored per 60 mins. Although he doesn't play on a scoring line.
Sure shows his potential and he'd easily be top 6 on at least 10 teams in the league right now.




18 Feb 2015 20:54:49
Simple trade. change of scenery type of move

Toronto: Polak, Clarkson and a 2nd

LA: M.Richards, B.McNabb

Based on a post from a sports website stating Kings have interest in Polak and Richards is now demoted to the farm.


Polaks the next captain of the leafs IMO wouldn't do this if I was the leafs


I would rather see phaneuf and the 1st from Nashville to l.a for Richards and toffoli


19 Feb 2015 04:09:51
how does this help toronto?


Send Polak to LA for picks.




18 Feb 2015 04:34:16
Kings: toffoli

Mon: eller, emelin , 2015 1st or 2016 1st

Kings are a good team but they lack at defense
With voynov and some injuries. Plus eller can play at the wing Also

Mon: pleckaneck,fucale or andrigetho ,1st or a 2nd2015, emelin

Avs: duchenne

Avs: get a good vet defensive center , fucale a potential starting goalie or andrigetho a guy that Avs know well and emelin that help there poor defense! Duchenne has talent but you have mackinon and with plecky he could focus more on is offense


Kings need to add

Boris Bagel

Not even close for duchene


18 Feb 2015 07:58:05
Actually one of your better posts. don't think either is too far off. Avalanche would prolly want Galchenyuk, tho


18 Feb 2015 08:16:10
U did trade emelin twice


Its not like duchenne is torching the league he has 37 points in 57 game but ok let's put fucale and andrigetho


No way that gets you Duchene just because he's having a bad season doesn't mean there going to give him away for nothing. He's young, he's an Olympian and he's gotten 70 or 80 points before so its going to take a lot to get him.


Fair trade

Boris Bagel

Ok then you can trade Galchenyuk for a bunch of garbage players.




16 Feb 2015 20:49:18
Leafs - Kings

Justin Williams, Valentin Zykov, Tanner Pearson
Dion Phaneuf, Sam Carrick, 4th

Leafs - Penguins

Daniel Winnik, Olli Jokinen (1 million retained)
2nd, 2016 2nd

Leafs - Islanders

Justin Williams,4th for 1st

Leafs - Panthers

Aleksandar Barkov, Jonathon Huberdeau, Gudbranson, 2nd
Phil Kessel, Tyler Bozak




Leafs drop to top 3 pick


Panthers GM just said earlier today they won't move Huberdeau, Ekblad nor Barkov. Don't see them doing that trade for Kessel


All of these trades are ridiculously in favour of the Leafs. No to all of them.


Umm wow sooo Ya, let's start with for the 193rd time on this site NYI don't gave their first rounder!!! Omg if u don't know hockey don't post! Then stop with the Toronto trades everything they gave for all the best young players on an up and coming team, why would Florida a team on its way to the playoffs trade it's entire core to a team that is sucking for its players who are under performing? This make ZERO sense and finally stop with the one sided Toronto trades, this is why people on here rant about so many leafs fans because of posters like you! There a regret logical leafs posters who suffer because of others stupidity


17 Feb 2015 02:53:51
Like all except last one


If LA is taking on Phaneufs contract, they have to ship out a long term contract as well.

I think 2 2nds is too much for Winnik/Jokinen. Jokinen does not add much value. And winnik getting a 2nd and a 3rd like Lebrun said will most likely come down a bit.

So a second and a decent prospect or a 4th/5th could be realistic


Then people wonder why chirp says the things he does


17 Feb 2015 10:34:49
Was about to say the exact same thing, hab.


^ I think part of the problem is that you can read 4 or 5 trades you think are bad (and believe me there are some bad ones, but it's still your own opinion and bias that are informing that view) on this page and then make a statement like this "all leaf fans are deluded and overvalue their players".

I have no problem carving someone up for making a poor trade proposal. I don't even have a problem with someone saying there are a lot of bad trade proposals from a certain fan base, BUT the generalized statements (which seems counter to things I hear from fans on the radio and other fan boards) is where I have the issue.




16 Feb 2015 19:51:49
I thought of a trade idea.

To TOR Richards

To LA Clarkson

Both players have literly no value and are buy candidates at the end of the year so it won't hurt to eat least try and swap them maybe change of scenery will make them play like they did two years ago when they were in their prime. They are the same age roughly as well similar contracts LA has a depth at centre and toronto doesn't Richards has an extra year and a little more cap so the Kings through in a low pick but as the leafs I would do it anyway 1 for 1 can't hurt right?


LA adds roster players and TOR adds picks.

I'm fairly certain that Richards contract is 5m/yr and Clarkson at 7m/yr. With LA hurting for cap space, they add 2M in players and TOR adds picks.

Either that or Toronto retains.


This makes no sense.
Clarkson has 4.5m
Richards has 8.5m


Clarkson is at 5.75/year for 5 more years, Richards is at 5.75 for 5 more years. Interesting idea, could work for both sides


You guys don't know your facts clarkson is 5.25 Richards 5.75


U both don't know what your talking about Richards would be 4.8 or 5.7 if his salary goes back to what it was before he went to ahl and Clarkson is 5.25 so where do u get Richards at 8.5 and Clarkson at 7 this is directed at the first two comments


16 Feb 2015 21:56:48
what are you guys saying about these salaries lol

richards cap hit for the next 6 years: 5.75 mil

clarkson cap hit for the next 5 years: 5.25

clarkson makes more money in actual dollars by a fair amount due to his huge bonuses coming up though.

either way, I doubt a deal like that gets done, could be part of a larger deal maybe but even that's quite unlikely.




16 Feb 2015 11:53:23
As a Pens fan, The Pens need to make a couple moves at the deadline.

Trade #1: It's time for Martin to go before we lose him for nothing this offseason. I wouldn't mind seeing Martin for Williams from LA Kings.

Trade #2: Sutter is just not playing to his potential here and needs a team to center the second line for. I can't think of any teams in need of a second line center. Unless packaged

Trade #3: Beau Bennett can fetch a decent return due to his potential.

Trade #4: I think I'm the only one that feels more comfortable having Zatkoff as back up over Greiss. Besides, Murray needs more professional minor league experiance playing everyday. No one is really in the market for a so-so back up goalie. Unless packaged

Tought #1. Harrington or Doumoulin should probably get added to a package deal.

Moves #1-2: Its time to end the Downie experiment. Unless some how the coaches can give through to him to stop taking penalities. We have two solid lines (5 on 5) but can't play them when we are contantly killing off penalities. Finally, its also time to see Adams hang up the skates. He should not be taking shift on the top 2 lines ever in a game.

So, Pens trade Martin to LA Kings for Williams and 4th round DP.

Sutter, Bennett, Griess, Domoulin/Harrington and 4th-5th round draft picks for help to provide playoff experience for the Pens.


Take Williams out of the LA deal.


Even though the kings are looking for some blueline depth I think they would rather trade a prospect opposed to a roster player.

Charles Xavier

If kings are near a playoff position at the deadline, williams stays bc they are contenders once they make the playoffs. Sutter should be the second line center on pit. someone needs to wake up and see that malkin needs to go if they're going to win a cup any time soon


Your saying Sutter>Malkin? haha

That comparsion is like Kessel is worth 5 1st round drafts, 3 top prospects, 5 mid-level prospects, and 2 top 6 young wingers.

I hope Sutter gets traded and becomes the next center thought to be a 2nd liner and disappoints like Jordan Staal.




15 Feb 2015 23:51:51
The Kings and Leafs are constantly connected so I thought this deal made a lot of sense and helped both teams

Tor: 1st in 2015, Pearson, Nolan, Richards(50% retained), Regehr(salary dump)

La: Phanuef, Lupul (50% retained), Winnik


No team is going to trade a player and retain 50% of his salary


Toffoli needs to be in that deal for it to work.

even then, the leafs will be stuch with Richards-Clarkson

Most expensive 4th line in the NHL




15 Feb 2015 17:11:22
Leafs - Kings

Phaneuf, Winnik (50%)


Richards,1st 2015, Jordan Weal + salary dump expiring contract


Yeah, I read that article too (re: Weal).
This trade won't happen tho.


No. Makes zero sense. Bringing in Richards is a bad idea




12 Feb 2015 18:10:37
Pens make two trades.
Trade 1
Pens get
Tlusty-50% salary retained
Sekera-50% salary retained

Canes get
Pens 2nd 2015
Pens 4th 2015

Trade 2
Pens gets

Kings gets

Edmonton gets
Kings 2nd 2015

All teams would be cap compliant.


12 Feb 2015 19:41:05
I like the first trade but that 4th would have to be higher IMO. A 3rd maybe but probably another 2nd.


Pens add on the first trade




07 Feb 2015 00:35:33
TOR: 3rd Round Pick
LAK: Stephan Robidas

Los Angeles desperately needs help on their penalty kill. Adding Robidas would help replace the leadership lost from Willie Mitchell and add defensive help.

Leafs add a draft pick to help build a new core.


Way too much for Robidas. LA probably wouldn't want that contract either


LA can't take on his contract without salary going the other way




06 Feb 2015 18:12:01
chris Stewart (ufa)
Mikhail Grigorenko
Tim Schaller
2015 second round pick (la kings)



conditional 2015 fifth round pick (jets) becomes a third if jets resign Stewart

gives the sabers a young player to put with Connor McDavid/Jack Eichel


That's way too much for Kane


06 Feb 2015 20:10:01
@1st reply
lol no its not. grigorenko is the only quality going to WPG, stewart is trash, idk who that prospect is so he can't be very good and 40th-60th oa pick is also far from a guarantee to become anything of value.

all in all, its not bad.


@Shankar upon reflection IMO you are correct that is probably a pretty good offer. As far as Stewart, just remember he is not only a scoring winger but he is also an enforcer. How many players will drop the gloves as often as he will and still score 15 goals playing on the 3rd and 4th line? He has only 2 fewer goals than Lucic and had 2 more fighting majors (and according to Hockeyfights.com he won 3 and drew on 2) this year. So he is not trash. He will probably surprise all of us on the return that Murray will receive for him (not E. Kane, nor only a 3rd, but a decent return).




06 Feb 2015 04:50:31
There has been lot of speculation about santorelli and winnik. The return would likely be draft picks. However if franson is dealt leafs are looking for a (NHL player/prospect) and a draft pick.

To New York: Mike Santorelli
To Toronto: 2nd round pick, 5th round pick (all 2015)

To San Jose: Daniel Winnik
To Toronto: 3rd round pick (2015), 7th round pick (2016)

Franson will likely be traded to red wings, preds or kings.

Teams are interested in bozak, lupul and holzer as well. JVR and rielly whom are most talked about are untouchables.

Bob b bobson

Sharks won't trade for winnik. We have a log-jam in our bottom six forwards right now. Winnik used to play in San Jose anyway and complained.


Kings will be sellers, not buyers of UFAs this year

Boris Bagel

Toronto is looking for a 2nd round pick for franson




03 Feb 2015 13:22:21
OILGUY posted a similar trade yesterday but had too much coming back
BUF trades Andrej Meszaros to LAK for Mike Richards & Valintin Zykov
The Kings need a D-man and cap relief. Murray wants a return for his UFA and will have $35MM cap space next year. Richards has won everything there is to win in hockey: World JR, Memorial Cup, Olympics, AHL and 2 Stanley cups! Zykov is a good prospect who might be able to connect with Grigorenko and Zaderov.




01 Feb 2015 13:49:33
At the end of the season:
LAK trades Mike Richards (retain 20%=$1,150,000) & Valintine Zykov or Roland McKeown to BUF for Connor Hurley or Vaclav Karabacek
Kings dump salary, Sabres get a leader. Zykov was drafted one round before Hurley and McKeown was draft one round after Karabacek.




30 Jan 2015 15:32:42
Hypothetical Trades (Tell me what you think)

Washington: Vermette, Michalek

Arizona: Chimera, Orlov, Wey, 2nd 2016

Dallas: Franson

Toronto: Faksa, Gaunce, 4th 2015

Dallas: 3rd 2016

Boston: Cole

Detroit: Seabrook, 5th 2015

Chicago: Tatar, Smith, 1st 2015

Calgary: Richards, 2nd 2015

Los Angeles: Raymond, Russell, 6th 2016


No way Chicago gets all that for Seabrook. Take out the first and replace Kindl for smith, then add a C prospect.


Too much for Franson

No way Blackhawks accept that


31 Jan 2015 00:17:45
Arizona wants a scoring winger


31 Jan 2015 02:23:35
I like the Boston trade. you might not get Cole for that, but maybe.


How about this for Seabrook?

Detroit Trades:
Jurco, 1st 2015, Kindl. low B-C level prospect

Detroit's Defense:

Detroit may still need to add but Detroit won't trade Tatar right now.




29 Jan 2015 16:06:49
To Los Angeles:
Jake Gardiner
3rd Round Pick 2015

To Toronto:
Tyler Toffoli

Los Angeles is in desperate need of a defenceman after the suspension of Slava Voynov so Dean Lombardi may would like to gamble on Gardiner


Good age asset trade, however I don't think they want to move toffoli.

I think LA is more likely to use pics to get a solid dman at the dedline


They might do it for Pearson


Maybe for Pearson


I don't hate it. Gardiner would likely flourish in LA. Toffoli would top out at 2nd line C (which Toronto has 2 of already).

I agree with stickboi, a pick seems more likely.




27 Jan 2015 17:13:19
Scott Cullen of TSN came up with some possible trades for Mike Richards: To Calgary: For LW Mason Raymond and C Matt Stajan, with the Kings retaining part of Richards' salary.

To Carolina: For LW/RW Alexander Semin

To Edmonton: For a late-round draft pick, with the Kings retaining half of Richards' salary.

To Philadelphia: For C Vincent Lecavalier or D Andrew MacDonald

To Toronto: For RW David Clarkson.

To Winnipeg: For G Ondrej Pavelec and D Grant Clitsome


27 Jan 2015 18:10:16
id do viny for clarson in a heart beat. both are useless, but vinny is up in 2 years I believe and is a little cap saving right off the bat too.


27 Jan 2015 19:08:42
Lecavalier is up in four but ya I see your point.




27 Jan 2015 00:45:08
Mike Richards would be a great pick up for the Winnipeg Jets. They should wait and see if he clears, then try and trade for him with some salary retained.

To Los Angeles: 6th Round Pick 2015
To Winnipeg: Mike Richards (30% Retained)

Put Postma and Pardy on waivers,

Send down Chiarot,

Winnipeg Lines (when healthy),

*Galiardi, Peluso




Don't hate that idea but I'd like to see the jets move bogosian. Chiarot has to go through waivers and someone will pick him up for sure. Bogosian has the most trade value and unfortunately known to be a bandaid. Hate to see a guy like that go but I think he's the best option personally


27 Jan 2015 13:01:45
Why would LA retain 30% of his salary for 6!! more years for just a 6th?
Not too good of a deal for LA


They would retain the 30% to get the cap space, they only get 925,000 relief by sending him down. I don't hate it but, I would hate to move lowry to the wing or fourth line. Also agree with the above post that Chariot has to stay. Paired with Buff, super good chemistry there, they compliment each other perfectly.

el troubadour



26 Jan 2015 18:56:03
Los Angeles Kings place Mike Richards on Waivers.


26 Jan 2015 19:01:20
yea almost guaranteed he clears. no one wants to eat that 5.75 mil per for like 6 more years.


I wonder if any one will claim him


I guarantee that if that happened, Murray would snatch him up in a heart beat. Draft McDavid or Jack Eichel At the end of the season, he could offer Ennis, Moulson & 1st (not the 1st or 2nd overall) to TML for Kessel, turn around and trade Tyler Myers, Cody Hodgson, Mark Pysyk, Joel Armia & Chad Ruhwedel to EDM for Talor Hall
Hall-McDavid-Stafford #1 PP
Girgenson-Reinhart-Kessel #2 PP
Foligno-Richards-Gionta #1 PK
Deslauriers-McCormick-Flynn #2 PK
Either of those top lines could score 100 goals. Get a couple of free agent D-men, sign Niemi & Mike Babcock, and the team could compete for a cup


No one will claim him but someone could still trade for him sending salary back.


Keep dreaming sbr2017

Keep dreaming


I should add that Nolan would have to be instructed to play him less than 7 min a game with Kaleta and some other AHL player. A line of Hodgson-Richards-Gionta playing 15 min/gm would score too much.


Also, if Murray did claim him, it would generate some positive buzz in Buffalo and the fans would get excited again.


@JF12, actually when those trades were posted earlier most people thought the Sabres were giving up too much, so the trades are viable if Murray wanted to make them. Hall has been reported to be on the market, and I would imagine there are more trades involving Kessel on this site than any player. Moulson wants to live close to North York and took Murray's offer. So the bottom line is maybe I am dreaming but it is a very real viable plan.


Richards has won everything there is to win in hockey: World JR, Memorial Cup, Olympics, AHL and 2 Stanley cups! The Sabres need that leadership.


Ottawa should pick him up for these reasons.

Kick him out the the wing and play him with Turris - MacArthur. Have 2 solid lines and a 3rd that COULD produce offense

STONE - CHIASSION - MICHALEK (could produce)

With his contract, real money going down but cap his staying the same, this is the king of contract Ottawa will need for the next 5 years where they will struggle to get to the floor.


Jets, Predators, Sabres, Oilers and of course Monarchs. I really hope Murray can do a deal that helps LAK and BUF.

Telling you now that offer won't ever get u Jack Campbell


Jack campbell's looking like a first round bust, so I don't think he has all that much value


Value is there for the Tyler Kennedy deal but he's been playing well so idk of Sharks move him. He's started getting Hertl back on track.
