Vancouver trades
Sutter & Baertschi & Stecher
for
Buffalo trades
Ristolainen & Sobotka

Cap wise it works for the Sabres & they gain much needed depth. A vet C to help on D & the PK. LW scoring in Sven. Affordable RHD to play up & down the pairings.

Canucks free up the roster logjam & gain cap space immediately & for 2020. Risto won't be needed to be overplayed & better off for it helping out scoring. Sobotka is serviceable for his last year on the bottom 6. Allows flexibility to trade Tanev or let him walk as a UFA.

Tbh i'm not sure i want this trade thinking the Sabres get a pretty good return. Long term & cap space is my motive.

Easy no from Buffalo.
They get no value back for Ristolainen.
Sutter is a overpaid 3rd line centre, Baertschi is extremely injury prone and when he's healthy he's always inconsistent. Stecher is a bottom pairing defenceman.

Also, salary cap wise this doesn't work for Buffalo.
They currently have -1M in cap space.
5.4 (Risto) + 3.5 (Sobotka) - 1 (Negative cap space) = 7.9M
4.3 (Sutter) + 3.3 (Baertschi) + 2.3 (Stetcher) = 9.9M

9.9 > 7.9
Because of this trade not only do the Sabres get worse but they gain an extra million in cap space debt.


2.) 13 Aug 2019 20:33:50
2 demotions to the AHL gets them compliant.

Risto is the best player in the trade.
Sobotka is a cap thrown in.
Sutter is a 3C and overpaid for only 2 more years but helps where the Sabres lack most. C depth and D.
Sven is injury prone but isn’t a lost cause albeit some risk comes with him but can help out scoring.
Stecher truly a 3rd pairing D yes but is useful still.

Overall it’s a hopeful trade on the Canucks side.
Risto is good for scoring and needs to be in a better position and not relied on to play too many shutdowns minutes.
Depth and experience is the selling point if Botterill sees it that way. If a better offer out there then take it. His ask i assume is too high and Risto being RHD is his biggest carrot.


3.) 13 Aug 2019 20:57:07
Sabres don't need any RHanded Shooting Defencemen or LWingers.
Sutter would be the only interest.


4.) 14 Aug 2019 00:54:08
Sitter is injury prone. Baertschi is injury prone. Stretcher isn’t really any good. Buffalo can do better than this or won’t bother.


5.) 14 Aug 2019 11:26:27
Uhm, how do the Sabres lack depth on defence?
Also, I'm a bit confused on where this LW depth issue is.
They signed Johansson to be their 2nd line LW and Jeff Skinner is their first.
After that they have Vesey and Girgensons as the 3rd and 4th line LW.

And the centre depth issue is definitely arguable.
Where is Sutter going to play? 2nd line? Nope. Mittelstadt. 3rd line? Nope. Rodrigues. 4th line? Nope. Larsson.

All of Buffalo's centres are cheaper and better than Sutter. (Larsson is arguable)

Looks like a Cup tram then. Book it lol.

Vancouver
Eriksson/Sutter/Stecher
for
Columbus
Dubinsky/Anderson

Eriksson 1yr extra cap dump cancels out
Dubinsky 2yrs left for a washed up player

Sutter for C depth
Stecher for bottom pair RHD.

Anderson & cap space in a perfect world be nice. Not likely CBJ wants to move him but kick some tires anyways.

Crazy Canuck

1.) 11 Aug 2019 10:30:28
Andersson = Boeser.


2.) 11 Aug 2019 12:40:38
In what world does Anderson equal beoser that crazy talk.


3.) 11 Aug 2019 13:59:09
If Anderson=Boeser, Anderson = Marner.


4.) 11 Aug 2019 15:35:49
Anderson is not equal to Boeser, and Boeser is not equal to Marner.


5.) 11 Aug 2019 21:04:23
Lmao. Boeser has more value than Anderson.
And Josh Anderson is one of my favorite third liners in the league. Really like him and Boone Jenner together as a third line. But I still know Boeser has more value than Anderson. Lol.


6.) 12 Aug 2019 09:55:01
Yeah, I love Boeser, but he’s not equal to Marner. But Andersson is not equal to Bowser either.


7.) 12 Aug 2019 09:57:45
Well Columbus fans said they would trade Andersson for Eichel in a 1 for 1 swap on HFBoards. He’s the best in the NHL for what he does and on a team like the leafs who lacks a physical edge I’d take Andersson over Boeser 1000/10 times.


8.) 12 Aug 2019 10:10:26
at this point does anyone really care a what you think vb?


9.) 12 Aug 2019 13:48:50
All I can say is wow at Vbb's comments, just in awe about how often this guy gets smashed drunk and then visits this website.


10.) 12 Aug 2019 16:38:49
What i think is irrelevant i'm just saying facts. Fact is Columbus wouldn't trade Andersson for Boeser nor vise versa but i'm sure most leaf fans would take Andersson over Boeser.


11.) 12 Aug 2019 18:17:37
I can’t even read your crap anymore vbb’s. You always try to educate people on this site so here’s one for you. Look up the word “fact” and come back and let us know if this is your “opinion” or a “fact”. You show your age more every day. The “fact” is you have no clue what any GM would do.


12.) 12 Aug 2019 19:22:49
By VB's logic, Anderson=Marner.


13.) 12 Aug 2019 20:13:18
Lmfao. That is so far from a fact Dumbas. You just said that’s some random fans on a boards opinion - not fact.
Boeser has a ton more value than Anderson lmao. You just make yourself look bad day in day out. It’s awesome.


14.) 13 Aug 2019 02:28:27
Everything I say is a fact.


15.) 13 Aug 2019 02:56:37
Now I understand the whole vb is clueless thing. Did I really just read that?


16.) 13 Aug 2019 20:28:38
No, no it’s not. It’s very far from fact. It’s your clueless homer biased opinion. “Marner is the best singer since Howe”. Lmfao 😂😂😂😂. One of the worst opinions I’ve ever heard too.


17.) 13 Aug 2019 20:52:21
A fact is 1 + 1 is 2. An opinion is when you take bias and put one player with more value. It's clear if its lop sided but not when you listen to regular people say opinions on a website. can't just say your teams player is better. An opinion that andersson has more value is ludercris. That's an opinion which fine you have, just can't call it fact.

Baertschi/Stecher
for
JP/Gagner

Cap works for the Oilers
Canucks save 1m cap space
JP 2/1.5m
Gagner to the AHL again

Other than JP all are in contract years. Oil gain some depth & Canucks gain a roster spot demoting Gagner.

1.) 08 Aug 2019 23:37:35
So do the slashes mean one of those players or both of them?


2.) 09 Aug 2019 05:17:34
Both so a 2 for 2.


3.) 09 Aug 2019 06:02:05
Honestly, I think it's close value wise.
Oilers get their RD so Kris Russell can go back to playing LD, and Sven Baertschi for LW depth.
Vancouver gets a risky player with Jesse P, but if they can turn him around it'll be a steal.


4.) 09 Aug 2019 11:00:57
I like it


5.) 09 Aug 2019 11:54:26
Slashes generally mean either or.


6.) 09 Aug 2019 12:17:06
Slashes usually mean a hard
Slash with a hockey stick or a slash with a knife. What country is your dictionary from vbb?


7.) 09 Aug 2019 13:58:52
Slashes as a punctuation.


8.) 09 Aug 2019 18:22:51
Just messing around vbb. This site is what boredom is all about, haha.


9.) 09 Aug 2019 20:06:11
A few glitches on this trade.

1. Gagner played very well in Edm and was 10x better than Strome or Spooner for his Salary. If he plays as well this year as he did last year he is an NHL'er not AHL demotion as indicated.

2nd and most importantly.
Everyone seems to want Jesse for peanuts. Not happening as per Holland's statement. Good on Holland playing hardball with the spoiled brat who thinks that he can dictate his will upon an NHL franchise when he hasn't proven anything yet. Most kids would kill to play in the NHL, doesn't matter which team.

It will take a massive gamble by a GM to pry him out of Edmonton right now with either a top 6'er, or an unprotected 1st.
No one wants to give that for a risk like that, and Holland won't let the brat go for less than that. So STALEMATE time.

Realistically Holland's plan to send Pulu to Europe to have a bit of an attitude adjustment, and prove he can actually skate after double hip surgery is best for everyone. Losing his agent and blaming his child like request on the agent is something I think he needs to do to save face to get back to the NHL.

Ask is too high, return is too low. So off to Euro land you go. Show everyone what you're worth and then perhaps a realistic trade can get negotiated.


10.) 09 Aug 2019 22:06:47
@west is best
I'm an Oilers fan, and to be honest I'm pretty biased at times. But no way are we getting a top 6 player or an unprotected first for Jesse.

Sven Baertschi has the skills to become a top 6 players, he just has issues with injuries.


11.) 11 Aug 2019 04:53:33
Why did vbb get so many unbelievables, he's right lol about the slash


12.) 11 Aug 2019 10:05:23
Unbelievable are not dictated by the point created but more or less about the reputation/ Likeablilty of said poster.

Stecher/Virtanen/Eriksson
for
Puljujarvi/2nd/Russell

Affordable mobile RHD for a plug
Swap of 1st rounders
New scenery for LE to help defensive play

Crazy Canuck

1.) 04 Aug 2019 04:26:07
Oiler’s finally just dumped Lucic and his boat anchor contract. I don’t think they will be willing to take on Eriksson.


2.) 04 Aug 2019 06:52:20
So they get a contract dump, a worse player then Puljujarvi and Stecher who isn't much better than russell? Why does edmonton do this? If anything it would be

Eriksson, Virtanen, Stecher & 1st for Russell & Puljujärvi with maybe %10 retention of Eriksson


3.) 04 Aug 2019 12:34:33
Vancouver already traded their 1st.


4.) 05 Aug 2019 10:53:57
vbb you could always trade 2021 first.

Sutter/Stetcher/LE for Dubinsky/2nd

Crazy Canuck

1.) 31 Jul 2019 04:02:13
Interesting. Why do you think either team would do This?


2.) 31 Jul 2019 11:57:54
Dubinsky is washed up.
Stetcher is cheap and good value RHD
Sutter can be a 3C checking line
LE for the extra year is better than Dubinsky given the other parts to fill roster holes for the 2nd.


3.) 31 Jul 2019 17:32:06
Lol that’s a hard no from Columbus Loui Erickson is garbage.


4.) 31 Jul 2019 20:57:31
Dubinsky is garbage. I don’t think ignoring Sutter and Stetcher helps you.


5.) 01 Aug 2019 15:29:43
Suter helps eat 5 million of cap lol he's an overpayed below average 3C.
