EDM- Rieder, 2019 2nd
WAS- Burakovsky

Capitals gain cap space and a good pick for a guy that’s falling out of favour.

EDM- Spooner, 2020 3rd
DAL- Nichushkin

Similar contracts, similar stats and both have been healthy scratched.

I don’t know if it’s the best asset management trading a 2nd and a 3rd for two guys with a combined 16 points this season but at least they have potential to be good players.
I really don’t want Chiarelli making big trades. The small trades he makes are bad too though. He’s already traded a decent third line centre into Spooner who he’s trying to trade already. Traded a good depth forward in Cagguila for a bad contract who gets healthy scratched. And traded a 3rd+ for Petrovic who isn’t very good.

I wish both these could work.

I wish both these could work.

3.) 18 Jan 2019 15:07:40
caps gain cap space, but oilers need more cap space more lol.



26 Nov 2018 20:58:54
LAK- Carter

DAL- Hanzel, 2019 1st, 2020 2nd.


1.) 27 Nov 2018 00:54:33
i'd do it.

2.) 27 Nov 2018 01:45:28
Not bad.

3.) 27 Nov 2018 02:25:02
Can dallas afford to do this? Hanzel is LTIR. If they lose him off the books, they have no cap space left. Maybe they would be better keeping Hanzel to give them the relief to afford Carter? Or am I missing something?

4.) 27 Nov 2018 13:31:36
I’ll be honest I don’t know exactly how it works LeafsGM. I don’t know if Hanzal can be traded on the LTR but once he’s off (I don’t know what his injury is) the salary will be almost a wash.

5.) 27 Nov 2018 19:00:15

Spinal fusion back surgery. They say he’s looking to come back, but I have a hard time ever seeing him ply again.



23 Jun 2018 14:27:45
EDM- 40th, 71st
BUF- 32nd

EDM drafts Noel or Wilde.


1.) 23 Jun 2018 19:00:27
Lol Wilde went 41st.



09 Jun 2018 18:05:12
MON- Shaw
EDM- Lucic

Bad contract swap. Lucic has the slightly worse contract with an extra year and an extra million. But he’s the better player so I’m not sure if the Oilers would have to add. Also Lucic said he was open to a trade and Montreal pushed hard for him two years ago.

Montreal doesn’t have much depth on the left wing, especially after Pacioretty is gone so Lucic would be a good addition. Shaw has played center right? Could be a good right shot 4th center for the Oil.


1.) 09 Jun 2018 21:18:00
Ummmm how bout no unless Edmonton retains about a million on lucics contract or gives them a second round pick or decent prospect.

2.) 10 Jun 2018 00:28:15
Lucic will probably get back to maybe a 45 point guy which Shaw has never been, I’d say he’s worth a bit more money.

I actually made a mistake and he makes 2 million more. I would say the Oil would consider retaining a million but that would make the cap hits a wash and I think Lucic is worth more than Shaw if they have nearly the same contract.

3.) 10 Jun 2018 01:18:48
You say Montreal doesn’t have much depth on Left Wing. Its is the position with the most depth with Pacioretty, Drouin, Galchenyuk and Shaw. In a real world, Galchenyuk and Drouin are LW.

4.) 10 Jun 2018 02:17:00
retains more than a million and sweetens the pot with like a second or third.

5.) 10 Jun 2018 02:45:54
One of Drouin or Galchenyuk will be playing center, as I said Pacioretty will probably be gone and after this trade Shaw will be gone. Also most depth charts I see are him in the right wing?

6.) 10 Jun 2018 13:51:11
in your dreams hell no from Montreal shaw is a bit overpayed and he is 26 and is good in defence and can play bottom line center role and is good in faceoffs. Keep Lucic mo one wants him.

7.) 11 Jun 2018 11:21:48
and btw its 2 million more.

8.) 11 Jun 2018 11:22:47
montreal are full of wingers if they want another one they will draft zadina mo thanks.



15 May 2018 06:19:05
TOR- 23rd, 52nd, Carrick
CHI- 27th, Murphy

Big 25 year old RHD that plays a physical game. Might just need a bigger role to have a breakout season.


1.) 15 May 2018 15:44:28
Don’t think it’s worth downgrading just to move up 4 spots.

2.) 15 May 2018 19:50:57
Hawks need Murphy and his 4 or 5 years term at 3.8 million. If carrick never gets better, hawks lose the trade big time. If he does get better, he will get paid too and they lose the advantage of cost certainty. Makes no sense.

3.) 15 May 2018 21:01:01
I figure Murphy would be a good target for the Leafs and Chicago might want to sell some players for futures. You guys think those are some good pieces? Take out the 2nd and 27th maybe?

NYI- Lee
TOR- Kadri.


1.) 03 Jul 2018 03:54:12
Yah not a chance from the leafs. C>W. They’ll use there center depth to win.

2.) 03 Jul 2018 03:56:44
Leafs are planning on using their centre depth to cover up a bit of their blue line holes. Kadri is a massive part of that. Shut down centre with back to back 30+ goal years at $4.5mill. Can’t afford to lose that.

Also Lee obviously has great chemistry with Tavares but wingers for him to play with is not a problem we have. Babcock already said he will have marner on his wing, that was in the pitch they made to him.

And lastly Lee has a year left making $3.75mill and with 40 and 34 goals in the last 2 seasons, he’s going to get a big raise we can’t afford.

3.) 03 Jul 2018 04:19:39
I don’t know why the leafs trade away a center on a great contract. Lee is good also but the leafs keep Kadri.

4.) 03 Jul 2018 05:00:25
Toronto is weak on the left wing was my only thinking and New York could use another centre now obviously. Lol yeah Lee will get a raise but it might not be too much higher than Kadri’s. And I understand center depth is important but a team doesn’t need a 4.5 million dollar 30 goal scorer on the 3rd line when there left wing is weak. Just a thought but also using the money and trade chip on a D would probably make more sense for Toronto.

5.) 03 Jul 2018 05:41:50
Kadri got 4.5 mill after a poor season and some off ice problems. He scored 30 goals twice since. Lee only makes 750k less and put up those 2 massive seasons on that contract. It will be hard to put up 35+ again without tavares obviously, but if he puts up near 30, that’s 105 goals over 3 seasons. He’s not signing for Kadri money lol Kadri wouldn’t sign for Kadri money except he was already locked up when he broke out.

6.) 03 Jul 2018 19:30:04
I disagree with your notion that the Leafs are weak at LW. You clearly don't understand how Babs runs his lines.

7.) 03 Jul 2018 21:03:27
Who do they have on the left wing? And I was thinking Lee might sign around 5.5 but yeah your right he might sign for a bit more than that.



03 Jul 2018 02:09:24
NYI- Lee
CAR- Faulk.


1.) 03 Jul 2018 03:54:30
This is bettet.



06 Jun 2018 03:00:10
Anyone have any comparables for the 4 top D in the draft and are they expected to be top pair D? Bouchard, Hughes, Dobson and Boqvist that is.


1.) 06 Jun 2018 05:30:32
Bouchard kinda reminds me of John Carlson. Not the best skater but gets around effectively and pree solid all around.
Dobson reminds me (and lots) of Alex Pietranelo and even heard a couple say Dougie Hamilton . I haven't seen a ton of Hughes or Boqvist but from what I've read Hughes is comparable to Ghost but should be a bit better defensively once he matures and purely style wise I've heard Brian Leetch. Boqvist is like a Cale Makar+, Also heard "Swedish Torey Krug".

2.) 06 Jun 2018 20:34:17
Hey thanks man. Think any of them fall to 10? Heard Boqvist stock has dropped and the Oil will have the chance to draft him.

3.) 07 Jun 2018 07:15:35
Thing I read suggests Hughes is bottom-4 due to his size, but would be a #1PP catalyst and quarterback. So Tyson Barrie-ish I guess. Sounds to me like Bouchard is the only true D talent (aside from Dahlin, of course) who could possibly make the jump to the NHL next season. Every other prospect, regardless of their talents, sounds to need some seasoning in the AHL or elsewhere.



16 Feb 2018 02:58:37
EDM- Maroon, 3rd (67)
TBL- 1st (31)
I don’t know if Tampa will want to give up there first for Maroon but if the other targets are either gone or too expensive he’s a good option. Tampa really only goes down 1 round.

EDM- Letestu
PIT- 3rd (84)
Depth right handed center that can play both special teams. Heard rumours that Pittsburg could be interested but if there not a fit I’m sure someone will give a third for him.

EDM- Slepyshev, 1st (31), 3rd (84)
CBJ- Jenner
There was some rumours out there that Jenner’s available, I think Columbus would be happy with a first and decent, young winger.


1.) 16 Feb 2018 04:50:03
Playoffs haven’t even started, he’ll there's still a quarter of the regular season remaining so you can’t assume these draft picks positions. I’m sure Tampa will get a 17 plus draft pick but u can’t assume they’re going to win it all at this point.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 04:53:37
Tampa probably uses that pick for a D. I know they have intetest in Maroon (which ill be mad if they trade for him i don't think he will fit any different than Killorn) but the D is a much bigger need than a 3rd line winger that may be able to step up if there are injuries.

3.) 16 Feb 2018 20:43:06
Lol obviously I know the picks will change but you still get the idea of the trades. And jbs32 you might be right I just heard lightening could be in the running. I’ve also heard Maroon could fetch a mid to late first, in my opinion that sounds like too much. But the Maroon trade could potentially be to anyone in the playoffs (Bruins, Leafs, etc. )

4.) 17 Feb 2018 01:55:45
Edmonton is in a great position knowing Maroon wants to come back. Get a 1st and resign him in the off season. Most teams worry about losing Ufa’s.



11 Jan 2018 06:24:04
MON- Pacioretty, Morrow
FLO- Yandle, Bjugstad

Just a thought. Not sure how realistic it really is though?


1.) 11 Jan 2018 11:26:31
Too much from FLA

2.) 11 Jan 2018 16:07:59
I'm not really a fan of Yandle. no from Habs.

3.) 12 Jan 2018 15:12:41
Ya Montreal does not need anymore expensive right handed shot D men. Weber and Petry are their 1-2 RHD making a lot of $.

4.) 12 Jan 2018 17:37:25
Yandle shoots left.

5.) 12 Jan 2018 19:22:34
Hey bro! Glad to caught my mistake. Always looking out for me.
Well then perfect. Yandle-Weber, Alzener-Petry. All over $5M. Still a terrible idea.

6.) 12 Jan 2018 23:01:26
Anytime buddy.

7.) 13 Jan 2018 03:43:21
Alzner is under 5 mil .

8.) 13 Jan 2018 17:12:43
It's close enough. And with 4 more years. Still a terrible contract. And doesn't make bringing in Yandle any bit better. Would still be awful.

9.) 13 Jan 2018 20:25:17
Oh I was just pointing out anther mistake lol.

10.) 13 Jan 2018 21:18:54
Ya that's my bad. Just a out $350K less than $5M.
Big mistake. My bad bros.
Hope your feelings aren't hurt, I'm sure you're a mentally stronger person than some Habby buddy.

11.) 13 Jan 2018 22:36:51

12.) 14 Jan 2018 03:02:41
Lol habby.

13.) 14 Jan 2018 04:27:33
Lol Leafs17.

TSS, you’re right in saying we don’t know who’s better until Jones is a NHL regular. But unless the ducks have given up on Jones and I doubt they have because he’s 20, they wouldn’t trade him straight across for Johnsson. His potential is higher.

VB would you be saying that is Puljujarvi was a point per game in the AHL? The Oil management is garbage not Puljujuarvi. I get more and more confindence in him being a good player as the season goes on.

How is it Johnsson > Jones?
Jones is a 20 year old first round pick enough said.

What has Kappanen done that Puljujarvi hasn’t? Oil management is terrible for not having him in the AHL for at least a full season. But I’m personally getting more confidence in him the more I watch him.

I’m not 100% if I’m right here but a buyout would cost 4M for 8 more years if the Oil did it at the end of this season. 2/ 3rds of his salary for twice the remaining years left. Buyout is definitely not an option.

I think Carolina could do better. But if the rumours are true and this is the best offer, I think they take it. Lajoie has one less point this season and is 4 years younger too btw.
