Andrew Ladd
CGY 1st 2018 (probably 12th overall)

Brandon Sutter

Isles sacrifice a high pick to get rid of Ladd's contract. They get a useful (yet overpayed) player in return.

Canucks can afford to take on a bad contract. Ladd would have to waive his NTC but he's from BC so it's a strong possibility.

Lmao no not worth at all to do that for islanders are you serious?!

2.) 08 Apr 2018 18:48:05
If anything, it should be Ladd and a little for Sutter. Both contracts are albatrosses tho.

3.) 08 Apr 2018 20:11:16
That’s a big over payment to dump Ladd.

Philipp Grubauer

Michael Dal Colle
Conditional pick 2019

For the Isles, it's clear. They get a young 1B goalie who can challenge his countryman Greiss for the starter's job.

Caps get a LW prospect who seems to be a bust but still can turn it around if given a chance to play with skilled players. The conditional pick will depend on games played by MDC in 2018-19. If he plays less than 40 NHL games, Caps also get CGY's 2nd in 2019. If he plays 41+ games, there's no pick from the Isles (similar to Drouin-Sergachev trade).


1.) 17 Mar 2018 20:13:44
Lol going to take a much better goalie.

2.) 18 Mar 2018 12:47:07
Honestly, not too bad.

Problem is, Isles have tried too many 'iffy' goalies (Greiss, Berube, Halak, Gibson, etc. ) and I feel that Grub may fall into the same boat, considering he doesn't have any seasons as a 'starter' under his belt. I could see them going after a guy like Anttii Raanta, or even a guy like Craig Anderson due to their experience.

But the proposed trade is pretty fair imo.

Post some of those unbiased leaf trades for a change. Leafs could use a dman or two . I hear Paul martin is on the market lol.

Niklas Hjalmarsson

1st 2018
Josh Leivo
Connor Carrick

TOR gets a proven defensive defenseman to play with Rielly. His contract is up after next season when Dermott and/or Liljegren are ready for a Top 4 role.

Yotes get a late first (if it's too much, then SJS's 2nd) and two young guys who could benefit from getting more ice-time and change of scenery.

Mike Green

1st 2018
Jake Dotchin
Conditional pick in 2018 based on play-off success and/or re-signing


1.) 18 Feb 2018 15:18:10
Not sure theyd get a first and Dotchin. And then another pick. But you never know. i'm not really sure how to value Dotchin and can definitely see him moved.

Sam Morin

Michael McCarron

Swap of prospects who didn't get a chance/struggled so far. Morin upgrades left side of Montreal's D, McCarron brings size to Philly's bottom six.


1.) 05 Feb 2018 13:34:59
I love this trade!

2.) 05 Feb 2018 16:11:40
Morin has the higher value. Mtl adds a pick.

3.) 05 Feb 2018 18:38:37
Living in Montreal I haven't been a fan of what I've seen from McCarron. All he has that stands out is his size. Being a Flyers fan I haven't been a fan of what I've seen from Morin. All he has that stands out is his size. Oh wait that's the same thing. But in all honesty McCarron can't even do great in the AHL and the Flyers don't have any d-man of Morin's type so I wouldn't want them to do this straight up. But I do agree that if they aren't going to bring him up (which I think he deserves) then trade him to a team that'll use him.

What do you guys think about Zack Aston-Reese? Who is his comparable and do you project him as a center or a wing in the NHL?




04 Feb 2017 12:29:53
What would these teams have to offer to LV for not taking their player in the expansion draft?


Ducks protect:
F: Getzlaf, Perry, Kesler, Silfverberg, Rakell, Cogliano, Vermette
D: Lindholm, Fowler, Vatanen (Bieksa waives his NMC or byuout)
G: Gibson


Wild protect:
F: Koivu, Parise, Coyle, Granlund, Niederreiter, Zucker, Staal (Pominville waives his NMC)
D: Suter, Spurgeon, Dumba
G: Dubnyk


Preds protect:
F: Johansen, Forsberg, Neal, Smith, Wilson, Arvidsson, Jarnkrok
D: Josi, Subban, Ellis
G: Rinne


1.) 04 Feb 2017 13:53:07
Nashville will protect 4 d-men and risk losing one of their forwards like Wilson, Smith or Jarnkrok.



11 Jan 2017 10:02:57
I don't really understand one thing. It's about players at their 40's and their cap hit. Zdeno Chara's cap hit goes down to just 4M next season (6,9M this season) . Should this rule apply to Hossa and Luongo as well?


1.) 11 Jan 2017 11:06:15
You mean contract?

2.) 11 Jan 2017 12:35:44
The cap hit is the average of the money paid out over the course of the contract. The actual salary might drop year to year but the cap hit doesn't

3.) 11 Jan 2017 13:04:43
Well, Chara's cap hit DOES drop. That's the issue. I read somewhere that according to the new CBA, player's cap hit equals the actual salary after he reaches 40.

4.) 11 Jan 2017 14:47:17
You're right. According to the CBA and the "Kovy" rule, the year a player turns 40 their cap hit drops to equal their salaries. Any contract signed before 2010 does not have this rule applied, so Hossa and Luongo do not have this happen as they were signed in 2009

Good base of a trade. Habs add however since RNH is a two-way C and has proved he can play wing if needed (I know, everyone scores with McDavid, but still. ) . The addition starts with Habs 2nd, maybe more.

Lack was on waivers and nobody wanted him. Why would Oilers give a 3rd?

I would make it simple - Galchenyuk for Scandella. Maybe small plus from the Wild.

Canes don't need D-men. They need Duchene-like forward.

I like this trade for the Canucks.
