I know Atkinson has just signed an extension but IMO he'd be a perfect winger for McDavid.

Mark Fayne

Cam Atkinson
Jack Johnson

Oilers get Atkinson and a defenseman on an expiring contract (while Sekera is out). Fayne is a cap dump.

Jackets get a 1/2 centerman they need. They have enough D depth so they can afford to lose Johnson.


1.) 23 Nov 2017 11:55:05
No from CBJ. Fayne has no value, and Atkinson = RNH imo.

Petr Mrázek

2nd 2017

Arizona takes advantage of Mrazek's low value at this point. Vegas wouldn't get any better player from Detroit anyway and with Fleury available, they have their #1 goalie.


1.) 19 Jun 2017 15:01:25
That's actually not bad, I don't know if they'll take Mrazek tho.

Matt Duchene

Ryan Murray
Oliver Bjorkstrand
William Karlsson
2nd 2018

Columbus gets a high-end scorer who can play C or LW (less pressure on Dubois to play C). Colorado gets Top4 LHD in Murray, young RW with Top6 potential in Bjorkstrand, versatile two-way forward in Karlsson and a decent pick.

IMO it's overpayment for Duchene but that's exactly what Sakic needs to pull the trigger.


1.) 15 Jun 2017 17:27:35
That's definitely something Colorado will accept.



27 May 2017 09:20:34
I don't really have much knowledge about Devils' prospects so what could be the cost for them to aquire Sami Vatanen and Clayton Stoner (cap dumb, lowers the countervalue but helps the Ducks with their cap)? McLeod seems too much IMO, bud maybe Quenneville and a 2nd? What do you think?




23 May 2017 14:04:58


Habs upgrade at C, Oilers upgrade on RW plus a swap of two overpayed players who could benefit from a change of scenery. Salaries almost equal. Eberle would be flipped for D.

An example of F lines next season:

Maroon - McDavid - Puljujarvi
Lucic - Draisaitl - Gallagher
Slepyshev - Plekanec - UFA
Caggiula - Letestu - Kassian

Pacioretty - RNH - Radulov
Byron - Galchenyuk - UFA
Lehkonen - Danault - Shaw
Pouliot - McCarron - Mitchell


1.) 23 May 2017 16:24:36
Honestly doesn't help Edmonton imo. Feels like a downgrade.

2.) 23 May 2017 18:56:51
Unless puli has a real big offseason, I don't see him playing top line. If he is on that line, your team probably isn't as good as this year, unless like I said, his game really grows in a hurry. Value wise tho, oilers are giving up the best player in the deal (RNH) and I feel like gallaghers role can be filled cheaper, as good as he is at it. He's going to be an expensive role player. Guys can do his job 80-90% as good for 50% of his money.

3.) 23 May 2017 20:22:57
The Finn was a healthy scratch during the World Hickey Championships. He has a lot of developing to do to even make the NHL so being on the top line may be a little off.

4.) 24 May 2017 15:22:28
Not a prayer.
Plekanic's stuck in Montreal with that boat anchor of a salary. sorry.

Massive adds from Montreal needed.

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

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.

I wouldn't include Koekkoek in the deal but besides that it seems reasonable for both sides.
