To sens: Dobson, 1st, l.komorov To islanders:Stone,4th gives sens a really good prospect, roster player and a 1st. Nyi would have the cap to resign him. don't know if it's to much or not enough, fire away




19 Dec 2018 17:36:29
To carolina: Patrick kane To chicago: Brett Pesce, Scott Darling, 2019 1st, 2019 2nd, 2020 1st. Reason is Carolina is stacked on defense and a need for Chicago, Carolina could use more scoring, Darling included to even out the cap a bit and by the time his contract is up, Chicago should be on the up swing again. Chicago should keep toews instead of kane to mentor the young team. Carolina still in striking distance of the playoffs and kane might push them to get there. Thoughts? Is kane worth 2 1sts with taking Darling back?


1.) 20 Dec 2018 00:34:58
Guy from the hockey news was saying kane to buffalo would make sense cause kane would probably waive his no trade clause to go home, just thought carolina would fit better but still kane would have to accept.

2.) 20 Dec 2018 01:56:51
not enough for kane.

3.) 20 Dec 2018 17:36:20
Guy from hockey news suggested buffalo, sam reinhart, pominville and 3 1sts so think my proposal was reasonable.

4.) 24 Dec 2018 17:12:38
With Jokiharju and Boqvist in the system, Chicago may be looking for left hand instead. Maybe Slavin instead of Pesce? Tweak the proposal a little to make it work?



08 Feb 2018 19:18:12
So reading today there is rumors mtl is talking to Chicago about sadd? Guessing Chicago would want picks/prospects at this point


1.) 08 Feb 2018 19:50:39
How bout Saad for Patches? Maybe a little add from Mtl?

2.) 08 Feb 2018 20:08:09
If montreal has to add for taking back the lesser player with a higher cap hit. Then I would then jump on the fire bergevin bandwagon.

3.) 08 Feb 2018 20:48:44
With all the money they have tied up in Chicago with their core, i don't know if they would want to take Patches knowing he needs a raise in a year. I don't think they will be contenders this year so it really only leaves them next year to build on.
Also, if Bergavin trades patches for another winger. he might as well just resign.

4.) 11 Feb 2018 14:00:59
Colt. Saad for patches and mtl adds? Think you made a typo.



13 Jan 2018 05:45:59
Chicago: seabrook, pokka, 2nd. Columbus: jack Johnson Don't really know but Johnson wants a trade and Chicago needs outta seabrook contract...... anywhere close?


1.) 13 Jan 2018 06:43:05
Wow. Massive yes from Chicago. Massive no from Columbus.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 12:12:09
Without seabrook its way closer. what's seabrook going to do, be number 6 on Columbus' depth chart for the forseeable future? he'd be behind Murray, Jones, Werenski, Carlsson and Nuttivara on defence. And his contract is super bloated. No thanks from CBJ.



21 Apr 2017 06:47:20
Got a friend who's a flames fan, wants to trade gaudreau to nj for Taylor hall straight across, I think doesn't make sense for either team, I think Calgary should add a 2nd or 3rd, or decent prospect. Thoughts? Help settle our argument


1.) 21 Apr 2017 10:10:28
Wouldnt know why CAL adds, especially a 2nd.

2.) 21 Apr 2017 12:26:24
Each player has their benefits. I think Gaudreau fits better in Calgary's system, because without him they severely lack a skilled playmaker.

I'd say no from Calgary, and definitely no adding.

3.) 21 Apr 2017 14:13:24
I wouldn't trade johnny straight up for hall let alone add. Anyways makes no sense for Calgary.

4.) 21 Apr 2017 15:23:12
Id say no from Calgary. Him and Monahan have a good thing going, so not only would you lose Gaudreau, but you could see a little dip in Monahans production. I wouldn't make any changes to the front end of this team, maybe minor ones.
Now if you can figure a deal to get Schneider, ?

5.) 21 Apr 2017 18:52:39
Meh both players are compete Douchebags anyways. Douche for douche, sure give it a go. Lol

Probably a no from Calgary more so than NJ just because Johny has been part of Cakgary for a lot longer than Hall on NJ and they love him there and his chemistry with Monahan. But thinking about it, I actually think Hall could be better with Monahan myself. Isn't Johny from NJ area?
Interesting idea I suppose.

6.) 22 Apr 2017 02:08:45
Part of the reasoning was hall was born in Calgary and Jonny from nj, they'd both be happier. They're similar players but Jonnys complete lack of going into comers and leaving the zone early was part of my argument, plus just a sideways move for both teams.

7.) 22 Apr 2017 02:15:13
2nd is probably a little high, but do think hall is better all around, Jonny is pretty one dimensional and haven't seen him fight for pucks to hard, but also hall seems to be more of a dressing room cancer.

So maatta to Chicago for kahun and a 5th, thoughts? Actually think fair for both teams. Hopefully Maata can do like strome and have a new start and be better. Kahun is cheaper and productive 3rd-4th liner


1.) 17 Jun 2019 07:54:58
Still think Kahun has at least middle-six potential long-term. This was just his first NHL season. He worked very well with Patrick Kane. Has great vision, he can play on a scoring line, I bet he does great on Sid's or Geno's wing.

2.) 17 Jun 2019 10:44:57
I think Chicago got fleeced. Somehow Pitt is able to get other teams to solve all their problems for them. Maatta isn’t good and is way overpaid, Pitt should have had to pay to move that contract.

3.) 17 Jun 2019 11:24:16
I do think it's close enough to be fair in terms of value. The thing is Maata's contract shouldn't be a massive deterrent compared to other worse contracts. So it was factor in getting this return but not enough to make it even lower.

4.) 17 Jun 2019 11:25:53
Also just have add that this trade is Kahun-a Maata-ta! It means no worries.

5.) 18 Jun 2019 00:08:01
Ya, maata is overpaid but defenseman take longer to develop and maybe he can be the defenseman his potential showed. Then might turn out to be a bargain at 4 mil.



13 Jun 2019 04:05:24
My favorite part of the finals was seeing Brad Marchand cry like the little b!÷£# he is... other then that no one really cares. This will be one of the most run remembered cups ever
Other than its STL first cup


1.) 13 Jun 2019 06:35:20
I watched about 6 mins of the whole series but I'm glad St. Louis won.

2.) 13 Jun 2019 14:45:49
It’s Stanley cup final do you realize how much work he put in there? Just because he cried dosent make him a b***h it shows he cares about the team. If I were in his situation I’d probably have done the same.

3.) 13 Jun 2019 22:01:16
I agree with VB. as much as I hate the Briuns, these guys prepare their whole life for this. lots of emotion goes into their careers
On the plus side for Marchand, he has won., many don't get to say that.

4.) 14 Jun 2019 00:27:55
Interested in whether the admins censored b**ch or if he just randomly pressed random keys on the keyboard.

5.) 14 Jun 2019 02:41:58
Game 7 was the most watched NHL game on record, so I doubt many will agree with you mcgee.

6.) 14 Jun 2019 18:12:58
Just pressed random buttons tyba. Just cause dude is the dirtiest player in the league by far. Because he cried, definitely seen others cry but you can watch 10 minute videos of just his slew foots.

7.) 14 Jun 2019 18:16:23
And chirp, you must be American. Was the most watched game on NBC. Not ever.

8.) 14 Jun 2019 18:20:22
Chicago Montreal 1971 was the most watched game ever. Nearly 1/ 3 more viewers. Check your facts before chirping.

9.) 15 Jun 2019 15:39:15
Your “most watched cup ever” stats are completely meaningless in a world where you can stream games “illegally”.

10.) 16 Jun 2019 02:57:53
McGee: Most watched NHL game ever by way of current Nielsen measuring system implemented in 1994. Fact.
But, sure, let’s rely on wildly inaccurate data entry estimates of the 70s taken from a sample group that was a percentile of a percentile of a percentile. Gotcha. Totally makes sense. 👌🏼.



05 Feb 2019 18:44:25
Mathews signs 5 year contract, just long enough so he's unrestricted at the end....hello Arizona after that, guaranteed


1.) 05 Feb 2019 19:10:43
Depends what both teams look like then. I think this could be a new trend. let's players hit another massive contract at more money and let's teams keep AAV a bit lower for a window of time when they need to win. Maybe he is looking at Mcdavid hating life here having to answer why we suck so much everyday and thinks Connor already regrets his 8 years.

2.) 05 Feb 2019 19:34:06
Just kind of fishy to me that it's right in his first year of unrestricted, if they were going to do a shorter contract leafs shoulda just said 4 so they forsure had him under control. Maybe give him a couple more million to the contract. I don't know, just might come back to bite them and pull a taveras and just walk.

3.) 05 Feb 2019 19:35:05
I think on a 8 year deal he was asking for over 13 mil. 5 year gets the cap hit down but for taking the 5 years instead of 8 the leafs should have got a lower cap hit then they did. 10.5 x 5 should have been plenty IMO . It's win win for matthews huge pay day now and an enen bigger one when he's 26. Will probably end his career as the richest player of his generation.

4.) 05 Feb 2019 19:39:12
Nice by Matthews. Gouged them on a short term contract and gets his ultimate goal, UFA as soon as humanly possible.

The Leafs didn't have much choice though. They showed that they were willing to overpay players with the Tavares and Nylander contracts, so they brought this on themselves.

So, much for Shanahan and his "everyone needs to take discounts to stay here". Lol 😆.

5.) 05 Feb 2019 19:45:20
I don't agree that this AAV is really all that low, given the 5 year term. Frankly I think he just got overpaid by $1.5 mln-2.0 mln.

I'd call this a fail for Dubas, for a few reasons:

He should have pushed for a 6 year deal instead of 5. Reason being, Matthews deal would be expiring at the same time as Tavares' deal, meaning the Leafs would have a ton more financial flexibility in getting him re-signed.

Even with a 5 year term, looking at comparables, this contract screams the NHL is heading for another lockout to me. Stamkos is a really good comparable, as he also signed a 5-year deal coming off his ELC (this way you don't have to worry about how many UFA years the deal eats up because it's the same) . He signed for $7.5 mln AAV, when the salary cap for the coming season (2011-2012) was $64.3 mln. That's 11.66% of the total cap for the coming year. If we apply that same percentage to Matthews' $11.634 mln AAV, the salary cap next year would need to be about $100 mln (versus the $83 mln current projection) to keep it flat. If you look at other centers who signed for five year extensions after the ELC's (Toews, for example), it's the same story.

This deal only eats up one year of UFA status. I think Dubas paid too much given that. It was good for him to get it done ahead of the offseason, and the Leafs now have cost certainty and a guaranteed 8 total years of Matthews (including his first three seasons) . But the Leafs are going to have to shed some salary elsewhere (unless Marleau decides to voluntarily retire after collecting his bonus this summer) . My 2c.

6.) 05 Feb 2019 21:19:34
Did I just hear he has a nmc in his final year of the deal too? why would the leafs ever agree to that?

7.) 05 Feb 2019 21:30:36
They will still have one of the best teams in hockey for the next 5 years Joe. How is it that everyone makes a valid point without being a dick, other than you. You and your sidekick islandjet are the only 2 on this site that are negative with everything you say, regarding the leafs. How quickly you forget how bad your team was for so many years. Correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t there other teams willing to give Tavares more? Nylander’s contract is only steep this year, assuming he returns to the player he was. I noticed you didn’t bash the leafs for the Muzzin deal? I guess we’ll see how the mighty jets do signing the inconsistent Fin.

8.) 05 Feb 2019 21:50:31
Great for the Leafs but at the end of the day next season 1/ 2 of their cap will be on 4 players, Tavares, Matthews, Nylander and Marner.

9.) 05 Feb 2019 22:14:07
Habby did you think he wouldn’t get a NMC? It buys out a year of UFA so it’s not as soon as he otherwise could. I think it’s good for both honestly he’ll provide surplus value on it and it allows Leafs to build around him for a few years. I don’t think it’s a given by any means he leaves after, and Marner will get less than Matthews. They’ll try to use Kucherov as a comparable and his deal is for 9.5.

10.) 05 Feb 2019 23:26:50
I dunno who the leafs fans are up there, but don’t complain about that #! You have a good team and are paying for it. Could be a lot worse. Even if marner now gets $10.0 you would get Matt, marn, tarv, Riley, Andersen for about $500k less than we are paying McD, Drai, Nuge, lucic, Sekera and Koskinen! Boohoo. First world problems. Same with jets. You’re going to pay a lot and lose a good player or 2 but it’s to have players like wheeler, scheifele Connor buff helly Trouba ehlers and so on. There are teams with half as much talent and there’s teams with older declining rosters like hawks and sharks with similar payrolls and the money’s committed to guys whose best days are behind them. Be happy and watch a good team play and hopefully someone can bring the cup back to Canada, just not the flames! JK.

11.) 05 Feb 2019 23:59:45
Yeah I don’t think Tavares is overpaid. Him choosing to sign with the Leafs as a UFA is apples to oranges with RFA signings, and given that san jose offered him more and the way he’s performed, that’s money well spent. Nylander maybe a little, but he looked really good last night (could be because Anaheim is getting beat up like a house league team right now, but it he keeps skating like he was last night he’ll be fine) .

12.) 06 Feb 2019 03:02:34
@jbs he only got nmc in his last year which I find strange. That would be the only year the leafs would consider trading him. Give it to him in the other 4 sure or even all 5 years. But only the last year? Weird.

13.) 06 Feb 2019 05:18:29
Habby the last year is the only year he CAN have one. Players can’t have NMC or NTC until UFA years. I’m sure if he could have had one for the length of the contract he would have gotten it. I’m not sure why the NHL has that rule honestly, if a team wants to give a guy a NMC out of his ELC I don’t see why they can’t.

14.) 06 Feb 2019 06:14:49
I knew they couldn't do it on elc but I always thought they could on their 2nd contract oh we'll that explains it I guess.

15.) 06 Feb 2019 10:11:30
Well Leafs17, I've learned how to post on Leaf threads by seeing the way Leafs fans post here in regards to anyone that isn't a Leaf fan.

I agree that the Leafs will have a very good regular season team for the next 5 years. It's just going to be hard to upgrade that defense if the Leafs try and keep the big 4.

The Tavares thing was a made up rumour of a higher offer to make Leaf fans feel better about over paying Tavares.

The Muzzin deal was a good deal for the Leafs.

Is that nicer?

16.) 06 Feb 2019 10:47:18
That is nicer, good job. I could be wrong but San Jose was offering more for Tavares. Either way, there is a way most people on this site post their opinion without being sarcastic or ignorant. You’re not one of them. Every fan base on here has called you and your bff out for being arrogant or biased towards the mighty jets. You do read my replies but neither one of you have ever commented on the fact that Winnipeg was a very bad team for a very long time. Did you both just watch your first NHL game with daddy 2 years ago? Or is it short term memory? I for one have been a leaf fan for many years and I remember the past, therefore I am not arrogant.

17.) 06 Feb 2019 14:38:58
Also, have you noticed I don’t say Jets fans and lump all 3 of you together? The Black Alpaca is a very respected poster. There are some delusional leaf fans, just like any other team. Try addressing the individual (s), instead of the fan base.

18.) 06 Feb 2019 15:07:03
Leafs17, the Jets have only been in the NHL with this franchise since 2011, so the Leafs have been a lot worse than the Jets for a lot longer. I, myself, though do not do a lot of bragging about the Jets as I don't want to jinx the success, however I will defend the Jets when biased people try to downplay their success.

If you say you haven't been arrogant about the Leafs, I believe you, but you are condescending to many posters as you are to me in the post above. Maybe if you practice what you preach, you would get better responses.

I know at one time you were one of the reasonable Leaf posters on this site and you and I actually had some good conversations without bickering. Then I must have made some post about the Leafs that ticked you off and you started with personal attacks and condescending responses. So, since that time, I keep my guard up and reply in same.

19.) 06 Feb 2019 23:50:15
I guess all the other years the jets were in existence do not count? Tell that to the diehards that stuck with them and fought to bring them back. You must be a tween.

20.) 07 Feb 2019 01:49:18
No, I just realize there were 3 different periods for the Jets. The WHA days when the Jets were fantastic, the first time NHL period which wasn't great and the now period, which started rocky by fixing Atlanta's mistakes, but is kind of nice now. So, yeah I know all the ups and downs.



02 Dec 2018 19:13:53
So just interesting seen a lot of people posting sherback from Montreal in trade but got claimed off waivers for nothing. He not developed as well as supposed to or what happened?


1.) 02 Dec 2018 20:31:16
He really hasn't developed into much. He was never suppose to be a top line talent or anything but the habs had hoped he could be a decent 2nd line option I saw his ceiling as a 20 goal 50 point player which would have still been good. and he may still get there but his work ethic will have to improve. I think La should be a good fit for him if he can make the team.

2.) 02 Dec 2018 20:46:18
A first round pick waived. Yes, I think it’s safe to say he didn’t develop as hoped.

3.) 02 Dec 2018 22:34:03
Since kovalchuk is out for 4 weeks and they’re not scoring with what they have, maybe he gets out in a position with good players there and gets a better chance now.

4.) 03 Dec 2018 04:54:43
Yeah ya never know new team, new chance he better take advantage of it cause he's not going to get too many more chances. If he puts in the effort he should make that team and play somewhere in the lineup.



02 Dec 2018 04:22:33
So nylander all the sudden highest paid nhler this year? Seems wrong


1.) 02 Dec 2018 06:30:11
Not quite. Including bonuses and all he’s going to get $12mill of his $45 mill this year.

Tavares $15.9
Mcdavid $15
Price $15
Benn $13
Toews $12
Kane $12
Kopitar $12
J. carlson $12
Nylander $12.

2.) 02 Dec 2018 16:39:26
I guess you’re off again shoots. You’re another one always looking for the negative in this. I must be the f’d up one here that likes to see all Canadian teams do well instead of having a pissing contest over everything.

3.) 02 Dec 2018 18:22:48
Well everyone else is playing a full year, leafs17, you calling the kettle black? Love to see Canadian teams do well, but being a Blackhawks fan know what terrible contracts do to a team. Now nylander has to be traded eventually but got him for this year so that's good. But off to Arizona or ect. In the off season.

4.) 02 Dec 2018 18:36:54
Just because there is not a flame ahead of him, it’s a bad thing. And 15 years into a salary cap and 5 years into this CBA, have people not figured out yet that how much a player makes in any one season means absolutely nothing?! Lol figure it out. Cap hit is all that matters.

5.) 02 Dec 2018 19:29:43
He doesn’t get $12 mill for playing 2/ 3s of a season! It’s prorated lol come on, you don’t actually need that explained to you, you’re just being a troll, right?! Look up the definition of ‘prorated’ then read your comment again and see if it makes more sense.

6.) 02 Dec 2018 19:39:02
He missed 27 games. Meaning there’s 55 left. $2 mill signing bonus he gets. $10 mill salary is divided by days, not games but games makes it simple and very close. $10mill salary for 55 games is about $6.7 mill + his bonus is $8.7mill. That makes him ranked 25th this season not highest paid lol he’s behind guys like draisatl, Evander Kane, seabrook, suter and praise.

7.) 02 Dec 2018 20:22:24
I believe Chicago won a couple cups during the time you’re referring to.

Brown is what brown is. Puljujarvi still has time. Fair right now based on what they have done to this point but one has a way higher ceiling. It's high risk and reward for Toronto but Edmonton knows what they're getting.

All of them are terrible except maybe some team taking Marleau contract. Probably have to add a prospect though.
