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.

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?



06 Jan 2018 19:18:04
EDM- Russell
SJS- Boedker, 2nd 2018

Boedker and Draisaitl had some chemistry at the World Cup. Big contract for big contract. Russell has more points than Boedker so the pick is needed.

Russell- Burns
Vlasic- Braun
Dillion- DeMelo.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 19:33:21
I like it.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 19:34:02
I don't mind it.
As much as I really like Russell. I would hope if he were to be traded that his spot would be upgraded with a better D in the off season. Get a good top 4 d man somehow. Not even sure who I would target or be available in the off season actually. Not doughty or Karlsson. Someone like a Faulk (he could be available but price would be pretty high and understandably so) .

3.) 06 Jan 2018 20:14:24
Where do you put Ryan huh?

4.) 06 Jan 2018 20:23:09
Honestly I was very skeptical when we signed Russell but now I’m enjoy having him on Edmonton. However I’d for sure take this trade imo. Still not a fan of signing him for 4 years.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 21:22:03
I really wanted Edmonton to sign Boedker over Lucic last off season. He isn’t doing anything with San Jose so I could see them trading him easily.
And ya I agree yup upgrading with a RHD would make perfect sense. It would give Oil a deep blue line IMO.

6.) 06 Jan 2018 23:26:53
Good trade. Fits team needs imo.

7.) 07 Jan 2018 01:43:46
Also Haglin is the fastest player in the NHL but number 2/ 3/ 4 are Boedeker, Larkin and McDavid respectively ( according to records takin during Rangers/ Arizona practices and the All Star game. Boedeker and McDavid would be scary on the rush.



05 Jan 2018 10:54:32
EDM- Russell
OTT- Smith, 2nd 2018 or 2019

Oilers add a 3rd line C plus a pick. Ottawa adds a D that would IMO be a better fit for Karlsson.

Russell- Karlsson
Phaneuf- Ceci
Chabot- Wideman?


1.) 05 Jan 2018 18:48:55
Do the Sens even have those picks at their disposal? A second may be a tad high with Smith.

2.) 05 Jan 2018 20:46:32
Not too sure… but maybe a 3rd would be more reasonable. Also worth noting Smith has 8 points in 24 games while Russell has 15 in 40.

3.) 05 Jan 2018 21:32:50
We don't have a 2nd (Brassard trade) or a 3rd (Duchene trade)



25 Jun 2017 21:16:45
MON- Galchenyuk, Davidson
NAS- Ekholm, Sissons.


1.) 25 Jun 2017 22:55:30
No way from preds.

2.) 25 Jun 2017 23:33:10
If they won't trade Ekholm for Duchene they won't trade him for chuck.

3.) 26 Jun 2017 01:27:16
Nah from Nashville.

Sissons played really well in the playoffs, could see him as a 3 line centre, injury-replacement 2nd as needed. He's worth more than Davidson.

Ekholm played like a truck in the playoffs - him and Subban were nearly unbeatable (they had like what, 2 goals against at even strength? ) . For that reason, and the reason that defenseman go for a bounty now, he is worth more than Chucky.

4.) 26 Jun 2017 05:19:12
Just drop Sissons then? They can definitely use some extra help down the middle. Plus Davidson is a decent defensmen that can pair up with Subban.

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.



11 Jan 2018 06:22:43
MON- Pacioretty, Danault
STL- Stastny, Paajarvi

St. Louis might not want to shake it up right now but with a couple young centres making a push sooner rather than later they could probably afford to lose Stastny. Thought the secondary pieces made it better but I’m not a STL/ MON fan so could be wrong.


1.) 11 Jan 2018 09:43:11
Why would MTR do this?

2.) 11 Jan 2018 16:09:03
No from Habs. If rather have Danault over Stasrny at this point of there careers.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 20:35:47
Danault to much of an add in? Just seeing who Montreal could get as a number 1 centre and couldn’t think of too many.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 23:50:33
Well Ebs, I don't see Stastny as the guy to come be the number one center. I have always thought this guy was overrated. , maybe because of his contract. If they are going to get a number one, which I have been wanting for seems like 20 years., i'd either want to see a guy in his prime, or a young guy just scratching the surface. besides, isn't Stastny brutal contract up after this season? I'm not 100% on that however.

5.) 12 Jan 2018 06:35:06
Ya I think it might be Sosa. Don’t think he’d be a bad option for you guys TBH but maybe not in the expense of Pacioretty. Best thing for Montreal to do would be rebuild/ retool and get younger but that doesn’t seem like something there GM will do.

6.) 12 Jan 2018 15:14:51
Stastny UFA at seasons end. I can see STL just keeping and using him for the playoffs then he walks.
Unless they can magically dump him in a deal like this with good roster players coming back, so there isn't a hole for the playoffs with Stastny going out.
Montreal should just sign him in the off season.
$8M 6 years.

7.) 12 Jan 2018 17:40:52
Yup. are you suggesting Montreal should sign him for 6 years at 8 mill?

8.) 12 Jan 2018 19:23:11
Lol. You said it, not me. 😜😜🙈
I was being sarcastic. Haha.

9.) 12 Jan 2018 20:19:52
Haha funny man. you said it! Lol.



27 Jun 2017 17:35:36
MON: Galchenyuk, Davidson
NAS: Ekholm, Sissons.


1.) 27 Jun 2017 19:06:10
Not a chance from Nsh.

Ekholm >>> Davidson
Galchenyuk > Sissons.

Replace Yamamoto with the 3rd overall and the 2nd trade is not too bad IMO. But no way from the Oil on the 1st trade anyway. Lol.

I know a draft pick is unpredictable for the most part but what if the 10th was Sergachev, Trouba, McAvoy or someone of that caliber? I know the 10th doesn’t have that value but from what I’ve read the top 10 will be really good players.
Also say the Oil retained 1 million of Lucics contract, (I know 5 years is a long time and they probably wouldn’t do it) do you think the contracts would look to be about the same value? Lucic has clearly been the better player throughout his career while not putting up crazy high offensive numbers. If he can bounce back to a 45 point guy, he’ll have teams wanting him I think.

17 Jun 2018 17:35:06
Demers would be a really good contract to take back in a Lucic trade. 4.5 million for 3 more years. At 10 there’ll be a really good player and unless they think Perlini will have a breakout season it’s a slight overpayment IMO.

I’m sure there’s other teams that will offer more than Calgary will for Grubauer. I don’t think they need him bad enough to make the trade. Also they wouldn’t want to retain on Orpik and take Martins contract. Doesn’t make any sense for them.
