NSH: Dante Fabbro

Tor: JVR.


1.) 22 Feb 2018 13:11:11
Straight up I'd say it's lost for a top line rental. Idk Fabbri is look at highly so hard to say.



15 Feb 2018 04:51:24
Just a thought how far would a straight up swap as a base be for this?

ARZ: Domi

Van: Beartschi.


1.) 15 Feb 2018 13:07:58
Ahah add Juolevi.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 16:12:34
I think Van would need to add a pick to even this out.

3.) 15 Feb 2018 19:56:02
Add somthing but not juolevi.

4.) 15 Feb 2018 20:46:56
Canucks laugh and hang up. Baertschi is already more than what Domi currently is. Arz would have to add to put this through and I doubt they’d do that.



14 Feb 2018 17:13:53
LAK: Clague

Van: Vanek.


1.) 14 Feb 2018 23:03:26
Lol A099. Not getting Clague for Vanek. As you are not getting Heiskanan for Tanev.



10 Feb 2018 22:52:58
Van: Tanev

For: Demott and Kapanen.


1.) 11 Feb 2018 03:53:55
Could see Vancouver takin that.

2.) 11 Feb 2018 03:55:37
No from Toronto. Dermott is going to be better than Tanev in a couple of seasons and Kapanen is starting to show he’s a very capable NHL player with huge upside. Tanev has another 2-3 years before his production starts to drop off significantly.

3.) 11 Feb 2018 04:10:40
What do you mean production? He’s not a guy that will get points and Toronto doesn’t need one. They want a guy that can hold the fort down and he’s capable of doing that for a long time for Toronto and he’s got a very reasonable cap hit to go along with that.

4.) 11 Feb 2018 04:43:34
I agree that you can’t judge tanev on points, and if I’m Vancouver I would want quite a bit for him, but I wouldn’t give those 2 kids for him. They have both been really bright spots over the last month or so in the NHL and in the AHL before that. Only 20 and 21. Dermott looks like he’s the type of D that’s going to excel in the league. Insanely good skater. Never know this early, and haven’t been sold on a leafs D prospect other than Rielly in the last 7-8 years, but this kid looks legit.

5.) 11 Feb 2018 08:19:00
Never said anything about point totals, production doesn’t always mean points. I’m talking mainly about his advanced stats, for example his Corsi rating, expected shots against while on the ice, high danger chances given up, etc. Maybe you aren’t aware of those. As players get older, especially defensemen, their skating takes a hit and therefore so does their overall defensive play. So, like I said originally, in 2-3 years Tanev will certainly be worse than he is now, which is right around where the leafs will be contending for a cup, and Dermott and Kapanen will both be 22-23 years old. So tell me, why on earth does Toronto make that trade?

6.) 11 Feb 2018 13:19:35
AO99. What you are seeing is typical Toronto fans overvaluing their players. Dermot maybe good but what's he had. a good 2 weeks? Think of how they cherished luke schenn. he was going to be next captain. lol

And whatever happened to "the monstee"?

7.) 11 Feb 2018 15:28:03
I believe you mean the monster not the monstee. And he was a free agent signing that had multiple teams bidding on him. It didn’t work out, don’t remember anyone calling for him to win the vezina tho lol and no one is saying dermott is great, in my response I even said it’s only been a month and it’s too early to say for sure but he’s a great skater and has a chance. How is that over valuing? Lol you’re a clown.

8.) 12 Feb 2018 17:47:18
Wow. mature response
But. typical.



06 Feb 2018 10:19:48
Tampa goes all out for this year and possibly next year so here’s 2 trades to help them out

Trade 1

Tampa: Callahan (cap dump) . Foote

Van: Ben Hutton

Trade 2

Ott: Erik Karlsson

Tampa: 2018 first, 2019 first, 2018 2nd, Raddysh, howden, Koekkoek

Yes Tampa gives up a lot of their future but they are in win now mode and this roster can compete for the next 5 years (if healthy) . Dumping Callahan gives them an extra 5.8 mil freed up to resign both Karlsson and kucherov in 2 years and before anyone says those 2 guys will command 10 mil plus just remember the tax rate in Florida is a lot lower which is why stamkos signed for only 8.5 and Tampa is stamkos’s team so Yzerman will find a way to resign Karlsson and kucherov at around the 8 million dollar range.


1.) 06 Feb 2018 12:12:51
foote >> hutton
cap dump = freed salary to sign players
i don't think foote is worth the cap dump.

2.) 06 Feb 2018 19:02:09
Insulting to ottawa, need atleast one decent roster player with that lightning package to even get the sens to listen. i'm thinking hedman or sergachev to get the convo started, along with the prospects and picks. you keep koekkoek.

3.) 09 Feb 2018 11:12:05
Wow so you're saying Ottawa gets pick #30 - 2018, 60th 2018, 30th - 2019, + Raddysh, Howden and Koekkoek. Too funny

TB adds Callaghan and Ott only sends Karlsson not Stone.

I think Ottawa will keep both instead. Ottawa only needs to rest Karlsson until next year as he is still injured and it shows.

If they trade Karlsson he should go West somewhere.

Either you hate Ottawa or you love Tampa Bay.

22 Feb 2018 00:07:42
Honesty I don’t get the whole issue with Tampa trading for Karlsson without an extension in place. First of all you get him for 2 full playoff runs and second. Steve ****ing YZERMAN will handle his contract. Remember Steve saying he won’t sign stamkos for more than 8.5 and he kept his word, Yzerman is a genius of a man and I think he’ll match hedmans contract and Karlsson will accept for 2 reasons. 1, tax rate is lower in Florida and 2, he’s good friends with Hedman and lastly he wants to win and he knows he’ll be on the best team in hockey for aslong as he wants.


1.) 22 Feb 2018 01:12:28
steve yzerman or at least his scouting staff has done a tremendous job. but with regards to player signings he is at a huge advantage with the very low tax in florida. 8.5mil in tampa is the equivalent of 9.8 in montreal or Toronto.

2.) 22 Feb 2018 03:34:19
Nobody will argue tax rate helps. But 9.8 was still lower than most would have thought Stamkos and Hedman would go far and if that's their salary equivalent in Toronto Yzerman still did a hell of a job.

3.) 22 Feb 2018 05:27:36
At the time it would have been high not so much now.

4.) 22 Feb 2018 05:53:38
8.5 was equivalent to almost 11 mill in Toronto. Canada being federal income tax and california have the highest state income rate at over 13% were in the worst negotiating position. And add in cost of living and provincial taxes on top of it and ontario is by far worst bang for your buck.

5.) 22 Feb 2018 06:12:48
Actually Jim Quebec has the highest tax.

6.) 22 Feb 2018 07:30:25
To bad there wasn't some way to figure this tax crap out, so there is true parity in the league.

7.) 22 Feb 2018 14:05:20
At the time people thought Stammer would get 12+ following Toews and Kane 10.5 deals. Different teams have different advantages. Some are closer to homes of more players. Some have legacy. Some have weather. Some don't have taxes. Only way to even the playing field would be a blind bid system where the player doesn't know what team submitted what offer. I don't think that's a good idea. But i don't think that the no tax in Florida has that much more impact than Montreal/ Toronto legacy and closeness to family players will take cuts for that stuff.

8.) 22 Feb 2018 16:43:23
It's a huge advantage jbs.



15 Feb 2018 04:58:44
I’m hearing a lot about speculation that Tavares should go to Montreal for however much cap space they have but what is the possibility of Tavares going to Vancouver signing for 7 years at 14 million since the sedins contracts are up creating an extra 14 million in cap space. Let me know thoughts I’m interested in hearing about this.


1.) 15 Feb 2018 18:06:05
I guess the selling feature to go to Van would be their young upcoming forwards - but he already has that in NYI. Do you choose Horvat and Boesser or Bailey and Barzel.
I think he would want a team that is defensively responsible where he can bring the offensive touch to put them up higher. That is just my guess.

However, wouldn't mind that feed back. what pair would you prefer?

2.) 15 Feb 2018 23:03:14
Personally Horvat and boeser because the 2 are a younger pair and Horvat is locked at 5 more years at 5.5 million while bailly is 28 and going to command more than 6 million for maybe 5-7 years on the UFA market.

3.) 16 Feb 2018 04:34:17
Future is finally looking bright for Vancouver but they are still 3 or 4 years away do you think he would want to wait that long? my feeling is he stays with the islanders.



09 Feb 2018 05:18:22
Realistically what could the Canucks get if bey trade Jake Virtanen right now?


1.) 09 Feb 2018 05:35:41
Why would they trade virtanen?

2.) 09 Feb 2018 09:16:20
Sell while he still has value because the older he’ll get the less value he’ll have with his stats.

3.) 09 Feb 2018 17:34:09
Probably a mid to late second, similar to Lazar.

4.) 10 Feb 2018 15:50:13
You would think Virtanen has more value then Lazar ever did. I say late first rd pick.

5.) 10 Feb 2018 17:26:45
No ones giving up a 1st for Virtanen. Wow. He doesn't have that value. Team would just make hair own selection and develop themselves.



25 Jan 2018 19:09:45
Just wondering, a bunch if nhl coaches, gms and even players don’t like P. K. Subban cause of his personality but if he played a different sport like in the nba or the nfl, would he still be a problem or is it just cause the NHL is a much quitter even “boring” league?


1.) 25 Jan 2018 19:55:46
I think that's a fair assessment. He just sticks out too much in the NHL personality wise. And I think yes, he would "fit in" with the NFL and NBA more.
And this has. Irving what so ever to do with race. Not sure why I feel the need to point that out but I do. Lol.

2.) 25 Jan 2018 20:44:59
Ppl are starting to come around to guys celebrating goals and showing real personality but it’s still far from those other leagues where showboating and gloating isn’t frowned upon, but even rewarded. I think it’s that it’s got an ‘old boys club’ feel about the tradition and people feel that subban (and some other guys, but he’s the best and most recognizable of the group so takes more heat) don’t always respect that.

Personally I don’t mind some of the antics when it brings excitement to the game. What I don’t like and what I believe others don’t is when it stops being about making the game exciting and just becomes promoting an individual in a very team oriented game.

What I mean by that is that last year in the playoffs, Ryan Ellis was really getting a lot of positive reviews and attention that he has deserved for a long time but never got because of the market he plays in. Now they’re on a run to the finals and he was being interviewed about his big pp goal and pk subban interrupts his interview and talks over him and then the cameras and questions started going to him. Teammates see this happen, and a long time teammate of theirs in Ellis is finally being recognized and a guy that always gets lots of attention can’t let him have it.

That’s when I have a problem with it and I think that rubs a lot of people the wrong way about him.

3.) 26 Jan 2018 00:17:30
All I know is that PK has a great personality, has never done anything to insult anyone, Yes he is flamboyant. however has a lot of class, and is a good role model for kids. Jus keep being PK, league is better with his big personality than without. Much missed in Montreal.

4.) 26 Jan 2018 11:28:04
If some of the things I've heard are true then he probably deserves a lot of the criticism he gets.

5.) 26 Jan 2018 13:29:12
Yeah. I never said he wasn’t a good guy. He’s obviously very passionate and has given back to communities etc. I just don’t think it’s hard to see that he puts self promotion in front of what’s best for the team sometimes. And the original post was why coaches and players don’t like him, not why should fans and hospitals not like him. As a fan, you might love seeing him score a beautiful goal, do a superman “shirt tear off” celebration and jump into the glass right beside the oppositions bench. As a teammate who has to play against the opposition he’s pissing off, or as a coach that has to strategize against a team that he’s motivating, you probably won’t. Also something he’s been known to do that gets on coaches nerves (see Patrick’s Roy and Matt Duchene) is he will celebrate a goal or a great play by himself even if it follows 2-3 bad giveaways. I wouldn’t want a guy on my team who thinks it’s a good night because they scored 2 goals, if they were a minus-3 and we lost 5-4.

6.) 26 Jan 2018 17:18:45
That's a fair assessment jim. Another thing I will say is people chatter how he was dealt by montreal because therrian didn't like him. or because he was too flamboyant but the main reason was because of the way he acted toward his teammates when he wasn't selected to be captain. Also people will find out soon enough that the big donation he made to the children's hospital was mainly done for 2 reasons to better his chances of being captain and for a tax break. that being said I liked the guy he wasn't my favourite player but he was a good player, not great. but good.

7.) 26 Jan 2018 18:05:14
I know I'm a Subban hater and this just sounds like bashing and hate. But I agree wth what Habby said. I thought right from the beginning of that Montreal Hospital thing that he was more so doing it for personal reasons than just the good of it. Not taking anything away from how good of a thing it is. But I know I just look like a hater saying it. But not that Habby has said it, I can agree.

8.) 26 Jan 2018 19:08:39
It's not just pk that has done it lot of people do it. its like when you go to walmart and donate a1$ to a charity every time you buy something. then at the end of the year they put a plaque on the wall saying walmart donated a million dollars to so and so. drouin did it shortly after. he signed his contract here. i mean out of the 10 million subban pledged it might actually cost him a couple million which is still a good gesture but I'm sure he made back more doing appearances and from endorsements because of it. like every pro athlete decisions like this are either made by there agents or agreed upon by there agents. And we all know what the only important thing to them is.

9.) 26 Jan 2018 23:11:54
Unreal that your talking negatively about a guy donating 10 million to a children’s hospital. I’m sure he along with everyone in Montreal’s dressing room knew him donating 10 million was going to magically get him the C. Obviously there’s going to be some personal gain from doing what he did but you guys.

10.) 26 Jan 2018 23:15:07
All players make charitable donations, it helps with their taxes. But because it was Suban, it got a lot of extra publicity.
That being said, still not a huge fan of his as a player. I found him to be more of a reliability in the offensive zone and the only reason he got away with it was because of his speed. He was way too predictable. Also, he wasn't listening to coaches and taking extra long shifts when he was called off the ice - got a lot of extra man penalties for that crap.

11.) 26 Jan 2018 23:42:15
Yeah. I remember hearing that the hospital donation was done the week that they were picking a captain and that from the moment patches was voted Instead of him, pk stopped talking to pacioretty all together except on the ice. That’s a real bad look IF ITS TRUE. Also every year all the players vote for their team representative for the humanitarian and communitycontribution awards and then the league selects a winner.

For the season that he donated $10 million to a children’s hospital, he was not the habs voted guy. That tells me something about the way his teammates view him. Because regardless of the tax purpose, or captain vote he still gave $10 mill (over 8 years) to a great cause.

12.) 27 Jan 2018 00:06:42
Yes like I said it was still a nice gesture whether the intention was genuine or not.



24 Jan 2018 19:24:35
What are the odds that in 2019 both Karlsson and doughty decide to take a huge discount for 1 year and play together on a team that is easily a contender. Maybe the both sign to Toronto for 1 year only then they have their massive paydays after they hopefully win a cup.


1.) 24 Jan 2018 21:24:38
Since both have said they wanna get paid its unlikely. Could see Doughty taking less to go to Toronto but at the same time is Toronto the team to go to to have the best chances at a cup?

2.) 25 Jan 2018 00:10:46
Id really hate to see stars doing this. look at the NBA (no they aren't taking pay cuts) ., but these Super Teams are boring. I do also remember Kariya and Selanne tried it with Colorado, didn't work.
I like the parity in the NHL, of course ya have your pre season favs., but on opening night, it's anyones season. ya start stacking teams for these 1 year cup runs, and I think it will take a lot if the integrity out of the game. building a team proper, like the Hawks, Lightning. ect.

3.) 25 Jan 2018 01:30:44
It would be interesting to see but for a year only. but it would never become the norm because these guys eventually want to get paid and in nba there is basically no team salary cap so i doubt year after year we would see super teams.

4.) 25 Jan 2018 04:11:02
Agree with sosa.

5.) 25 Jan 2018 14:50:09
Both will sign matching 1 year 1 mil deals in Pittsburgh you heard it hear first.

6.) 25 Jan 2018 17:01:00
I'd go to Tampa instead or Pitts now! Haha.
I'm actually surprised we've never seen a top end free agent elite player sign a one year deal with a top contender team before. You see it with some 35+ year old guys. But never an elite guy in his prime.

7.) 26 Jan 2018 01:33:32
@yup, Hossa did it. He was in his prime, got traded to Pittsburgh from Atlanta as a rental, lost in the finals to Detroit, then signed a 1 year deal with Detroit to win a cup, lost in the finals to Pittsburgh (karma lol) then cashed in on the 12 year deal he’s still on in Chicago and wins 3 cups.
