Sens trade Hoffman, prospect Donaghy, and a 5th to the Sharks for Boedker, prospect Bergman and a 6th.

Pretty underwhelming return.

Looks like the controversy impacted his value, not surprisingly to most.


1.) 19 Jun 2018 15:02:01
Amazing deal for sharks if he doesn’t bring any off ice issues along with him.

2.) 19 Jun 2018 15:35:12
Agreed McJ. And I would say kudos to Dorion. Boedeker is slightly overpaid but is at least a serviceable 3rd line winger (probably second line in Ottawa) and while I don't know much about Bergman he was a 2nd rounder and could still pan out. The draft picks are a wash and Donaghy will likely never crack an NHL roster so this is a better return than I had expected, given that the entire world knew Ottawa's hands were tied.

Is it the 10th overall from Edmonton as some had suggested? Certainly not, but that was ridculous to believe in the first place.

3.) 19 Jun 2018 15:42:00
We'll he's for sure going to bring off ice issues with him. but the sharks don't seem to mind that.

4.) 19 Jun 2018 15:42:49
Sharks just flipped him to panthers. 2nd 4th ans 5th.

5.) 19 Jun 2018 15:46:16
And sharks were rumoured to be all in for tavares, so they ditched boedker, and ended up with a 2nd, 4th and 5th, a forward roster spot and $4 mill cap space. Good move.

6.) 19 Jun 2018 16:15:41
Yes jim that's what they are saying. And it could be the case but for some reason I think they are going after kovalchuk.

7.) 19 Jun 2018 17:00:24
Yeah. Either way, getting 3 picks, a roster spot and cap flexibility right before draft weekend for doing some paperwork is a good plan.

8.) 19 Jun 2018 18:34:04
San Jose also in on Tavares.



13 Jun 2018 00:48:29
Some pretty crazy (and frankly disturbing) stories coming out of Ottawa. If true, good luck trading Hoffman for fair value.

Hey Rambo, still think Hoffman is worth Nylander? Here's an updated trade proposal:

Ottawa: Hoffman
Edmonton: Lucic

That's IF the Oilers want to rid themselves of the Lucic contract badly enough. They may take the high road and want to avoid the situation all together.


1.) 13 Jun 2018 01:57:18
Hoffman is still a good player on a decent contract. Some teams will definately give a much better offer than that. Also it is important to note that it was not Hoffman that is the at fault here, his girlfriend was the one sending the threats. Now we don’t know if Hoffman even knew (however it is likely that he did) but there is surely more to the story than what we know at this point and as such I doubt his value drops this drastically. If teams are willing to pay good value for players (themselves) that were accused of much worse then I am sure Hoffman is worth much, much more than Lucic.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 02:07:15
I’ve seen several hockey wife’s tweet about it so it’s more than likely true. But that doesn’t mean Hoffman knew or was involved in the nasty stuff. Don’t think it would affect his trade value all that much.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 03:42:05
Ottawa adds.

4.) 13 Jun 2018 03:16:57
Yah that’s a no from sens maybe if they added the 10th ovr.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 03:54:22
Haha I'm admittedly trolling Rambo with the above offer, but if after the dust settles, it's clear that Hoffman new about the harassment and lied about it, it's definitely going to negatively impact his trade value.

Ottawa will be forced to trade him at that point to save face, all GM's will know that Ottawa is in a jam and their hand is forced, and they will subsequently low ball.

Adding to that, who's going to want to share a locker room with that kind of guy?

This is just pouring gasoline on the raging tire fire that is the Ottawa Senators organization at the moment.

6.) 13 Jun 2018 04:13:04
Yes. Some of the hockey wives have somewhat confirmed that Hoffman's girlfriend/ fiance said those abhorrent words and if true (seems like it is), is absolutely disgusting. But i don't really understand how that affects Hoffman's trade value? IF Hoff defends her actions once proven that she said all those horrible things, then absolutely, career ruining. But for the moment, Hoff can't control what his girlfriend says, especially if he didn't know about it.

Just don't understand how something that Hoffman had no control over (to an extent) is considered career ruining and he is now UNTRADEABLE, yet Slava Voynov is garnering lots of interest from multiple teams.

Other than this Hoffman has never been perceived as a locker room problem .
However, if he does defend her actions once she is proven guilty, i'm def. going to have to change the name .

7.) 13 Jun 2018 13:20:41
His trade value definitely takes a hit from this. Don’t know how you can think it doesn’t.

8.) 13 Jun 2018 13:25:52
It affects his value because she goes where he does. You don't think that that could have been one of the things that tanked Ottawas season? It also appears this stuff has been happening for a long time but crossed a line with the Karlssons unfortunate situation. Just because its kept private doesn't mean he isn't bad in the room and now Ottawa has to trade him. No matter how good a player teams aren't going to take him if his baggage can sink a season unless its extreme value.

9.) 14 Jun 2018 22:59:04
Cool story bro. I was unaware that a players girlfriends factional actually affect their on ice value of the player themselves lol does she play for him too?

I had 2 crazy chicks when I was a bit younger but neither of their actions affected my job performance or value to my employer it's called personal and professional lives being kept separate. and the nhl is just like any other business. if the guy performs well like Hoff does it should have no affect on his value. actually it might raise his value as now more teams know he's available and found end up as a bidding war.

10.) 15 Jun 2018 16:23:52
More delusions from Rambo island hahaha.

11.) 18 Jun 2018 21:08:15
Delusions? It's called common sense unsportsmanlike. you should try using yours sometime. your wife's actions don't affect your work place value, nor does mine, nor does Hoffman's.

Will he defend his wife if he believes her story? He wouldn't be much of a man if he didn't now would he? It's called trust in a relationship and him giving her the benefit of the doubt.

WPG: Trouba

TOR: Gardiner, Bozak, 2018 2nd (TOR), 2018 2nd (SJ).

Leafs get a top pairing RHD to play with Rielly, while Gardiner slots in on the LHS on the Jets second pairing (they are way deeper on the RHS). Had a score mobile update stating the Jets are looking to add depth at forward at the deadline. Bozak would upgrade the third line. Added the two seconds as Trouba remains an RFA at the end of the year, while Gardiner only has one more season on current contract.

CAR: Hanifin

TOR: JVR (extended), 2018 1st (TOR).

Deal is conditional on JVR signing an extension (Carolina has lots of cap room and is eager to add scoring) which he may be willing to do as his brother plays there.

Leafs finally fix their leaky D:

Rielly Trouba
Hanifin Hainsey
Dermott Zaitsev
Carrick/Borgman/Polak (extras)

Have at it.


1.) 20 Feb 2018 01:19:48
Still don’t understand how Trouba has so much value lol.

2.) 20 Feb 2018 01:20:17
Also Carolina wants more imo they can be greedy especially when it comes to Hanifin.

3.) 20 Feb 2018 01:30:25
Toronto’s finest.

4.) 20 Feb 2018 01:58:43
Winnipeg laughs at you.
Carolina says no, Better chance getting Faulk than Hannifin.

5.) 20 Feb 2018 02:56:13
these are terrible. way too much from toronto.

6.) 20 Feb 2018 03:21:44
LOL from Carolina.

7.) 20 Feb 2018 09:52:12
2nd Trade is definitely a no from Carolina.

8.) 20 Feb 2018 15:04:30
Hilarious trade offer from Winnipeg's point of view. Absolutely no chance that would ever be considered for Trouba.

9.) 20 Feb 2018 16:33:07
Too much for trouba, although those pieces don't really help winnipeg aside from the picks and not enough for hanifin but again i don't think either of these players should be leafs targets. stud RHD or do nothing.

10.) 20 Feb 2018 17:24:48
Both deals a no go

Gardiner is too poor defensively
Hanufin worth way more than that.

Who would you rather have, Chiarelli at $3 for one year or Dubas at $5 mln for five years?


1.) 01 Dec 2018 22:45:01
Chairelli . . What really has Dubas done? He may be good. but I don't think we know yet. He may be next Lou. or next Gord Stellick.

2.) 01 Dec 2018 22:46:28
Ok. forget it. He did something lol.

3.) 01 Dec 2018 23:22:38
Chiarelli so I could fire him now and take over as GM.

4.) 02 Dec 2018 01:31:07
What? Dubas. Is that even a question?

5.) 02 Dec 2018 05:43:54
What all had Dubas even done? Serious question. What is Dubas done for this current Leafs NHL team.

6.) 02 Dec 2018 08:25:50
Easiest question ever. Dubas hands down.

7.) 02 Dec 2018 13:18:19
Wel Yupp, in additon to convincing one of the biggest UFA names to ever hit free agency to sign in Toronto for $2 mln less than he was offered elsehwhere, he has now successfully negotiated Nylander down from a ridiculous contract demand to one in the range of fair value. He also hired and promoted a capologist (now assistant GM) in Brandon Pridham who has been integral in structuring both Tavares and Nylander’s deals in a way that benefits both the Leafs and the players (in case of a lockout) .

You can also look at what he hasn’t done — like trade one of the best wingers in hockey for Peanuts, sign a dinosaur in Lucic to long-term, bloated contract. I can go on if you like?

8.) 02 Dec 2018 14:43:27
Unsportsmanlike I guess the question is what has Dubas done that almost any other GM wouldn’t? Tavares was going to Toronto, that was his decision not Dubas. Tavares could pick any team he wanted and it would have been more on a GM to take him away than for Dubas to bring him in its where he wanted to go. Nylander deal is a deal I think almost any GM would have reached in September only reason it took this long was he was playing a loophole for reduced cap going forward. If the leafs had a bad start we would have seen this exact contract 2 weeks into the season.

9.) 02 Dec 2018 16:57:41
You’re right jbs, Dubas didn’t really have to do much on the Tavares signing and we can read into this Nylander contract for years to come. I do believe if a GM signed Nylander before the season, it would’ve been for more.



26 Nov 2018 15:09:35
If the Oilers miss the playoffs again this year, and McDavid wins the Art Ross again (he's 5 points back from Rantanen at the moment but I think would still be the likely favourite by year's end) that would be two seasons in a row where the Art Ross was won by a player on a non-playoff team.

This happens occasionally (I was curious so I checked out the history behind it -- McDavid last year, Benn a few years before that) but generally speaking, it is a rare occurrence.

Do you foresee a situation where McDavid gets tired of losing/ wasting his prime and wants out? The Pacific is super weak right now which helps Edmonton's odds for sure but there is a staggering lack of depth on the Oilers roster and aside from a small handful of high-ceiling prospects (Bouchard for sure) I don't see a ton of reasons to be optimistic for meaningful change in the near future. They are tight against the cap with not a lot of relief in sight (excluding somehow jettisoning Lucic? ) .

All of the teams that have won cups in recent years had their star players (your McDavids, Crosbys, Kanes, etc. ) but also meaningful contributions from guys drafted after the first round. The Oilers are not getting that and that is why they continue to flounder.

They need to clean house -- not just Chia, but everyone associated with him (scouting department, player development, etc. ) to have a real shot at giving McDavid the support he deserves.

Otherwise, he might be circling 2025 or whenever his contract is up on the calendar to get out of dodge (if not sooner) .


1.) 26 Nov 2018 15:43:54
It does feel like the Tavares situation (obviously on another level of player output), but just a team that has kinda taken a player for granted. We all know how year after year JT did everything he could with what they had but was never going to win there. Unless the last year or twos drafts turn out NHL players soon, I don’t see it as being much different. Whichever player was lucky enough to be on tavares’ wing (Moulson, Okposo, Lee etc) put up career years and then moved on. Similar to whoever is with mcdavid (Leon, RNH) and the rest of the team is just treading water. For his sake, I hope they get it together because it would be a shame for him not to have team success till he’s 27 or 28 years old. He’s too good and too important to the league/ sport for that.

2.) 26 Nov 2018 16:40:42
Hopefully they turn it around. for him, and the team. I think it's important to the league to have a Mega star in a small market. I really don't know what they do however, to fix things. they showed so much promise a couple years ago, and its jus gone down hill from there.

3.) 26 Nov 2018 19:10:04
Crosby has played with average players for years and has found a way to make them much better players, which has lead to team success. McD is the opposite and has to play with the Oilers best players like Draisatl and RNH on order to pad his individual stats, at the detriment of team success.

4.) 26 Nov 2018 19:28:32
I don’t think he has to play with good players for his numbers, it seems the other guys need him to get their stats up. But either way, it doesn’t usually lead to team success when it’s 80-90% runs through one guy. I always thought (even before his insane start) hat Skinner would be ideal for mcdavid. He’s a great skater and can finish. If they could have him on that line and get Leon to find chemistry and run his own line, the whole team gets a lot better. Unfortunately between skinners recent success and reported contract demands and oilers cap problems, it’s unlikely that signing good players will be the fix.

5.) 26 Nov 2018 22:00:34
Also, local Toronto boy, hits UFA the year after Tavares contract is up. Start the countdown! 😆.

6.) 27 Nov 2018 01:42:08
If that happens Jim. hopefully he can show that American some class. I'd hope he wouldn't sign there. Leafs have become the Evil empire.

7.) 27 Nov 2018 02:56:57
Glad to see a hometown boy doing so well. Newmarket should honor him somehow. I wish he would win the cup and bring it down Davis Drive.

8.) 27 Nov 2018 14:04:42
He’s buddies with Dermott and Connor Brown. Use some of his childhood friends to lure him over to the dark side?!

9.) 27 Nov 2018 14:08:28
@leafsGM, are you in Newmarket? If so, have you been to Market Brewery? Really cool brew house with tons of beers on tap, can create your own beer and you bring your own food. Can order pizzas from outside or bring anything you want. Dermotts sister is a server there and he’s in there from time to time. Has his own beer you can buy to drink there or take home in a 6 pack called ‘defender’. Check it out, sales from his beer goes to charity.

10.) 27 Nov 2018 16:59:27
No way! I didn’t know that. That’s awesome. I don’t usually drink, but that sounds like a neat concept. Is it on Main Street?

11.) 27 Nov 2018 17:32:20
The Darkside is right Jim. Evil Empire.

12.) 27 Nov 2018 17:45:27
I think we in Toronto are ready to just accept the ‘evil empire’ title. Yankees have it in baseball because they have the best facilities, management, most money and like to flex it. With a hard cap in the NHL it’s hard to do that with players, but with the other things we can do with money to attract players, in all for it. Being hated out of envy and jealousy comes with being good, so why not just embrace it. If the leafs medical room can be worth more than some teams home rink, practice rink and team bus combined, so be it.

13.) 27 Nov 2018 18:23:28
@LeafsGM, on Leslie north of Davis.



21 Jul 2018 01:35:01
Sens trade: Rambo

Jets trade: memarcusjoe

Both teams send the respective paint chip eaters to the minors to work on their proposal bias.


1.) 21 Jul 2018 15:25:57
Great deal!

2.) 21 Jul 2018 17:41:19
Seems like a wash, both have negative value anyways.

3.) 22 Jul 2018 06:36:11
Melnyk staples Bobby Ryan’s contract to Rambo so jets send back dead weight in islandjet with MarcusJoe to even up.



16 Jun 2018 02:59:21
Montreal trades Galchenyuk to Arizona for Domi.

Bergevin at it again.

Oh boy haha.


1.) 16 Jun 2018 06:12:52
3 Big One for One deals 3 years in a row.
Other Gms 3. Bergevin 0.

2.) 17 Jun 2018 15:28:11
So before he even plays a game for the habs it's already a bad trade. sosa I liked chucky but I waited 6 years for him to turn into something more the an average forward and he didn't. at least with domi we still have a chance of him Turning into something good. Plus he just signed a much cheaper deal and we can probably have him for the next 6 to 10 years if he works out where as galchenyuk was going to be around for 2 more seasons. both have the same career ppg while domi brings a lot more to the table with regards to an overall game.

3.) 17 Jun 2018 21:53:11
I hope so Habby. I would have preferred our best tradeable roster player be involved in a trade for a center. or at the very least, not a one for one.

4.) 18 Jun 2018 11:42:40
He was on the block for 2 years this was his value. known to have off ice issues not a gaurentee to score 20 goals a year. Pretty much a 5 mil a year contract, brings absolutely nothing else to the table other then some spotty inconsistent offence. We as hab fans over valued him because he was 3rd overall pick and scored 30 goals one year. I was rooting for him as much as anyone but even I was sick of waiting for him to arrive. i think a change of scenery should be good for both players.

You must have vertigo from all of this spinning!

So just so we are all clear: no sources that Dorion turned down an offer of 2 1sts and Sergachev or Point (spoiler alert: it never happened) .

And a trade was NOWHERE NEAR as good as what you said the Sens would receive, calling us fools for undervaluing Sens players.

Just another chapter in the novel of Rambo being comically incorrect on this site. it's getting to be a pretty long book.

Yeah guys you need to stop undervaluing muh sens players and post totally unbiased fair trades like Point, Sergahev and 2 1sts for Karlsson.
