Mtl: 1rd 2018 (if the pick is third overall), 2 rd 2018

Car:1rd 2018, Necas

Mtl draft the best available center Joe Veleno of this draft. he's in the LHJMQ and dominated this year)Mtl gets Martin Necas another center for going back a bunch of spots. The second is because Necas is a very touted prospect. Is this fair

Carolina alsosigns Paul Stasny to a 4 million× 3 years contract while mtl offers Tavares 11 million for the next 7 years with a NTC


1.) 24 Apr 2018 13:59:12
ummm no from montreal.



22 Apr 2018 22:57:06
Mtl: Patches (2 million retain)

Wash: Bowey, Burakovski

Mtl gets a 23 left winger who just had a dip season and dosnt seemed to fit quite in Washintons system. don't get me wrong he's good but maybe a change of scenary could be benificial? Bowey is also 23 and just had a good season in the nhl and hopefulky he can build on that and be a good top 4 LHD. Wash pays the price for a player who now would be playing with a real number one center or a good solid center. Or heck even Eller if Backstrom gets hurt. i'd like to know if this is fair for both teams?


1.) 23 Apr 2018 03:31:34
Well no that’s absolutely idiotic for Washington to make If patches isn’t extended, and even if he is extended that’s still a no from caps imo. Not worth sending away two young talented players for patches.

2.) 24 Apr 2018 03:12:32
I think if the Caps replaced one of them with a pick it’d be more fair. Patches with Backstrom/ Kuz would be a 40 goal scorer.



22 Apr 2018 22:42:28



Bruins signs John Carlson to a 7 year 9 million contract

Im not sure if Edm adds tbh. Drai is signed to a big contract for his production but he's still a hella of a center and should be on a team where he would be the number one. Its time for Bergeron to step down a notch and play second line. That way he will last longer and Bruins will be more stable down the middle. This trade makes both team better as Edm gets one of the best young RHD in the league


1.) 23 Apr 2018 02:20:58
goood godddddd. cmon.

2.) 23 Apr 2018 03:01:31
I wouldn't do This if I were Edmonton. and I don't think Boston wants to get rid of Macavoy.
Certain teams seem to have a history at a position. Habs with goalies. Edmonton and Pittsburgh with super star centers. And the Bruins. a superstar Dman. from Shore to Orr, Bourque to Chara. I'm not sold on Macavoy being in that mold yet. but he has the chance yo be the next Boston Stud Dman.
Plus as a Habs fan. I don't wanna see Drais all that much against them. lol.

3.) 23 Apr 2018 03:33:24
No from both teams honestly. Boston needs their young dmen more than a centerman and Edmonton needs drat.

4.) 23 Apr 2018 08:09:37
You think Boston can trade away an ELC contract for an $8.5M one and then sign a $9M contract?
Boston only has $100K in space right now with only Rick Nash coming off and NYR retained a ton of that so only like $3.9M for him coming off. Holden $1.6. Couple others under $1M but will have to replace with others under $1M. Where is all this cap space for Boston to add $17.5M for two guys? Seriously you just don't think before you post. You're always so far off its hilarious.



20 Apr 2018 13:29:33
I read multiple article drafting that if Erik Karlson is traded this summer Mtl will be part of the deal. Of course not as the reicever of Karlson but because of the cap and the fact that Dorion and Melnyk wants Bobby Ryan to be part of any deal for Karlson could mtl add prospect or picks and take his contract or part of it for it? Could this be possible

Ott: Klingberg, Gurianov, Honka

Dallas: Karlson

Mtl: Ryan(no retention), Lindell, Faksa


1.) 20 Apr 2018 14:26:31
I don't think Dallas would trade Kling straight up for EK. Think age and contract man. Also adding all those pieces? I don't think Dallas considers this for a second.

2.) 20 Apr 2018 14:57:01
hell no from mtl.

3.) 20 Apr 2018 18:42:11
Don’t know the prospect but just guessing he’s a recent 1st rounder, plus 3 high potential young defence men and Faksa. No way from Dallas. Forgot to mention Klingberg was probably high in Norris talks this season.

4.) 21 Apr 2018 04:39:21
lindell and faksa are 3rd line players for taking on 7.5 million cap dump for 4 years ya he'll no

Mtl give Paul byron and Daniel Carr to Dallas to take on alzner and schlemko.

5.) 21 Apr 2018 04:49:15
klindberg is only 2 years younger than karlsson and nowhere near his level and all the prospects are all ahl players so sorry but this is a big yes from Dallas

Faksa and lindell really? to take on Bobby ryan contract ok then ottawa gives ceci and pageau would u take bobby ryan with him? I don't think so and btw ceci+pageau> lindell + faksa.

6.) 21 Apr 2018 18:18:52
Esa Lindell is a top 23 year old LHD who just had 27 points this year playing on thw secod pair. that's not a third line player wtf.

7.) 21 Apr 2018 23:02:13
@MTL4LIFE Kling might only be 2 years younger than Karlsson and not quite as good, but Karlsson has one year left at 7.5 mill before he leaves or you pay him 12.5 mill. Klingberg is in a tier not very far below the best Dmen in the league and has 4 more years at $4.25 million.

So if his great contract and the cap space it leaves Ottawa in the trade isn’t a great asset in your eyes, then why do you feel the habs deserve a ton more to take on bobby Ryans contract? In your response, Cap space isn’t an asset when talking about the sens trade, and then very next paragraph when it pertains to the habs it’s all of a sudden an asset that can’t be bought cheap lol can’t have it both ways.

8.) 22 Apr 2018 13:54:13
Lindel is extremely underrated he’d be the 2nd best dman on the Canadians he makes almost no mistakes Dallas will not trade him for anything on Montreal ( besides 4th overall) don’t comment on a player you do not know. If you watched him play you could see he is one of the most underrated players in the NHL he played top pairing in his rookie season for the most part.



19 Apr 2018 23:45:30
Obviously the need for a quality number 1 center in mtl is big. Like I said on multiple ocasuon I don5 believe the answer is within the pick we have in this draft becauze they're is no center worthy of being picked in the top 10 imo. And mtl's pick will likely be in top 5 unless the lottery decides otherwise? Not sure how the odds work or all the rule for that so I can't say we have a garanted top 5 pick. Maybe you guys can let me know below if theures a chaces mtl's pick falls out of the top 5. But to go back on subject do u guys think this pick should be used to traded for a young already drafted center prospect? I do and this is what I propose.

Mtl:1 rd 2018,3rd 2018

Buff:Mittelstad(5 points in 6 nhl games)

Does Buffalo consider this?


1.) 20 Apr 2018 00:39:29
Yes they definately consider this. They have good Center depth and there are 3 d men worthy of being picked in top 5. Obviously they’d want to wait for lottery but if the picks falls between 3-5 I think they take it into consideration.

2.) 20 Apr 2018 00:42:58
I think the Sabres would be Intrigued having Tkachuk as Eichels wing. I think they consider. Middlestad has crazy potential tho. Also it’s very unlikely they pick 4th.

3.) 20 Apr 2018 01:03:18
If this were to happen. What would be your plan for Mittelstadt next season Colt?

4.) 20 Apr 2018 04:40:57
I'm not sold on Mittlestad.
Rather make a deal for Reinhart. and keep our pick.

5.) 20 Apr 2018 12:35:09
Yea that was my thinking too in terms of they're center depth. And they drafted him 8 overall just last year and now get a lower pick so kind of a of a win win for both teams. Thanks for the feedback Xcing.

6.) 20 Apr 2018 12:52:35
I like mittlestadt as a player but I'm not sure if he's ready to be a top line center just yet. habs could end up trading for another player who would be better playing wing. At least for a year or two.

7.) 20 Apr 2018 13:00:02
I get it sosa 100%. But at the end of the day we need a real number one center and although Mittelstad is no guaranteed to be one, after is really good stint in the nhl, and mananing to get 5 points in 6 games playing on the third line mostly, and after having another really solid season in the big 10, I have to tell ya i'm sold.

8.) 20 Apr 2018 14:27:28
So you would play him top like center in Montreal from game one next season Colt?

9.) 20 Apr 2018 15:03:21
Would do it but I want montreal to try Tkachuk at centre.

10.) 20 Apr 2018 15:59:31
Tkachuck is played center from time to time in juniors but probably won't be at the nhl level i'm sorry to say. that's not taking anything away from his skills because he truly is a better version of his brother. But when your playing center at the nhl level you have to be the first guy back in his zone after an attack and seeing him play on several ocasion (only once in person tho) I feel like he relies too much on his defensemen when he plays center which is okay in juniors but with the speed at the nhl level it dosent work at all. Kinna what happen with Alex Galchenyuk.

He played center like that in juniors and it worked but at the nhl level because he was so used to play this way and continued to do so It just dint work. i'm not saying Tkachuck can't be a center at the nhl level, but if he wants to he would have to work hard to change his games and how he sees the play.

San Jose Sharls signs Evander kane to a 6 million contract for 5 years.




24 Apr 2018 10:23:14
Edm: Pul, Yamamoto

Car: Faulk

Edm gets a top 2 RHD without getting rid of any roster players. Would Carolina go for it? They assure a better future up front.


1.) 24 Apr 2018 13:00:59
Oilers won’t trade both top winger prospects. Leaves them really really thin.



23 Apr 2018 12:46:51
Edm: 2rd 2018

Van: Gudbranson

Maybe Guddy can break the top 4 in Edm worst case he's a good top 6 RHD at the cost of a second rd pick.


1.) 23 Apr 2018 17:44:09
I think Edmonton would go for a puck moving defenseman but who knows.



23 Apr 2018 14:31:33
Mtl: Gallagher

Edm:1rd 2018, Lucic(500k retention)

Edm gets local boy Gallagher while getting rid of themself of they're cancer contract.


1.) 23 Apr 2018 16:24:18
No. This is not good.

2.) 23 Apr 2018 17:37:01
I think that’s a big gamble for Montreal. If Edmonton finishes in the top 10 in the league next year, which they should, it will be a late first and a terrible contract for a solid player that is a fan favourite.

3.) 23 Apr 2018 18:21:55
Leafs17, it's not a 2019 pick. It's this years.

4.) 23 Apr 2018 18:45:00
Montreal already has a couple big cancer contracts. and the last thing Habs should do is get rid of the 1 guy who comes to play each and everynight.

5.) 23 Apr 2018 21:19:00
No from Montreal big time Lucic and 1st=7th round pick. i'd say he has the worst contract in the nhl. 4th liner being payed 6 mil.

6.) 23 Apr 2018 21:40:28
Good eye yup. Bad trade.



19 Apr 2018 15:00:42
Asking Maple Leafs fan, what do u guys think of Kerby Rychel from his time in Toronto? I wanted mtl to draft him in the 2013 draft he reminded me of Alex Galchenyuk that we drafted a year before the way he played. Then when he got traded to Leafs I figured he was a bust but since he's been part of the candiens organization he did nothing but impress me. Could he be a late bloomer? he's only 23 and jas decent career stats. Plays rough too. Thanks for the feed back guys!!!


1.) 19 Apr 2018 16:41:02
He could still be something but I think leafs management waited for him to prove his worth and it never happened. Part of the problem was he came to Toronto as a fairly recent 1st round prospect in a deal we flipped Harrington from the kessel trade. So he came in when the prospect pool here was just starting. Then he was passed by a handful of guys each season. So between him not grasping his opportunities and his opportunities being spread amongst a lot more young players, it wasn’t going to happen here. Although I do like that you admit he was a bust as a leaf at 21 and nothing but impressive as a hab at 23 haha.

2.) 19 Apr 2018 16:49:54
Coming in he was one 3-4 forward prospects in a weaker system that leafs thought could make a real impact in the NHL. But then Nylander comes over from Europe to the marlies, kapanen comes in, obviously they draft marner and Matthews who were never going to be in the same battle for a spot as rychel, but Connor brown develops from a 5th round pick, they trade for Zach Hyman. Soshnikov, Andreas Johnsson and Miro Aaltonen are all brought from Europe etc. He was just buried in the depth chart by better players.

3.) 19 Apr 2018 20:46:29
I wouldn't get too excited yet. A lot of players look good when they first get moved to another team. take sven andrigettho for example.

4.) 19 Apr 2018 23:50:37
@UnbiasedJim the reason I tought he was a bust has nothing to do with the Leafs themself. I tought the was a bust because he got traded for relatively nothing. Unless Harington had a ton of value at the time that I wasnt aware of. Why would CLB trade him for clost to nothing if he wasnt a bust? Nothing to do with Leafs honestly. i'm able to recognize the great talent leafs have even if i'm a habs fan thank you very much.

5.) 20 Apr 2018 01:09:15
No, Harrington didn’t have a ton of value. Much like what rychel is now, he still had some potential but a long shot to be what he was drafted to be. Rychel was traded from Columbus because he didn’t like the way the coach was dealing with him and his development. Him and his dad (warren rychel) demanded a trade out of Columbus. Once that’s done, we all know it’s hard for a GM to get full value when every other GM knows the player doesn’t want to be there. They lose the leverage.

6.) 20 Apr 2018 01:09:36
Lmao. Call 19 and 20 year olds bust weekly but now have one of them on your team and all of a sudden he's a late bloomer. This is hilarious. Such a homer.

7.) 20 Apr 2018 04:39:05
Lol. Good call Yup.
As being a Habs fan, i'd love to see this kid be good. however, like Habby said. they always look good. when they start.
I'd be really overly happy if he could be a 3rd liner for the Habs. but even that is a stretch.

8.) 20 Apr 2018 05:00:29
To be honest, I've always liked him. Drafted first round by CLB in 2013. I've always thought he has potential but just hasn't been given the opportunity? I think less than 50 NHL games played, Such a small sample size so I guess you can't really say he just hasn't grabbed his chance and ran with it. Maybe he isn't performing well enough in the AHL to get the confidence from the organization to get the good looks? As mentioned above, maybe he's just getting passed by others in the same boat now.

9.) 20 Apr 2018 13:13:02
How am I being a homer explain? And Jimmy Connor Brown was a 6th rd pick.

10.) 20 Apr 2018 13:33:32
I wouldn't say rychel being a third linee for mtl is a strecht. When you look at at we have up front if he plays his cards right he might fit into a top 9 role.

11.) 23 Apr 2018 18:31:55
Okay, brown was a 6th round pick, not 5th. My bad. My point is that he was passed on the depth chart by a lot of guys drafted far later than him, or free agent signings who were never drafted. That’s the reason they moved him. Never heard any stories about him being a bad teammate or having an attitude in Toronto, but after being like that in Columbus, I imagine it might have happened a bit here too after he sees lots of other guys getting call ups before him. Just speculating tho, leafs management does a good job keeping that stuff quiet these days.

The difference between Bennett and Brown is a second at the very least.

23 Apr 2018 14:18:12
Brown and Bennett aren't close in value, Bennett is in the same boat as Jesse Puljarvi. Both really talented, drafted 4th overall but need more time to develop. Funny how people value Puljuravi like crazy comparing to Perry in his prime, but Bennett is a surefire bust and bottom 6 forward? At least he had 1 decent season so far with 36 points. Not sure what's in the water out west, but as a plumber I am intrigued.

Well let's see shall we. Nash = 7.5 million = pouff gone after this summer then Beleskey will probably be bought out a couple million off and then add some tweaking around and you got the space. I know creativity ain't your strong suit but give it a shot and the world will await you bud.

I agree that Patches could get more but saying Sprong his destined for the ahl is ridiculous. he's domanted every he played (of course not the nhl yet) and played at the nhl at 18 year old and played this year 8 games and had 3 points. After having a ppg in the ahl this year I think next uear as a 22 year old he could get 50+ points i'd given the chance to play in a top 6 role. That won't happrn in Pitts so i'd be all for acquiring his services and hoping for the best. Trades not terrible imo if you value Sprong properly.

Lol pretty sure canucks don't have the cap space to take Prices (10,5), Weber (7.5)Patches (4.5 but surely 6+ million next year) and at the expense of they're best center prospect on top of that. Maybe something around Weber (10 % retain) and Hudon for Petterson but not sure Vancouver should go down that route tbh.
