Nashville: PK Subban And Elli Tolvanen

Pittsburgh: Phil Kessel, Justin Schultz And 1st 2019

Nashville- Gets Kessel whom would debatably be their best forward, a 1st round pick and a replacement for Subban. Subban is apparently unwanted in Nashville and Tolvanen looks like he doesn't fit in their system. This makes Nashville a better team today and possibly in the future.

Pittsburgh- Subban is coming off a bad season but is still a 1D. Defence is currently Pittsburgh's weakness and the addition of Subban improves that. Tolvanen is a replacement for Kessel and could be a huge future addition. Kessel seem to be the piece for to go for a shakeup


1.) 19 Apr 2019 03:19:02
I'm wondering if Nashville would be more inclined to make a deal to free up some cap room with this trade they take back slightly more I think.

2.) 19 Apr 2019 06:12:45
I see zero reason why Nashville would make that pick. Zero.

3.) 19 Apr 2019 06:12:51
That trade *.



06 Apr 2019 14:17:49
Edmonton needs to do something this offseason 1st on the list should be paying whatever it takes to dump Lucic 2nd in my opinion is trading future assets for forward help.

Edmonton- Milan Lucic, Jesse Puljujarvi And 1st 2019 ( 7th overall )

Montreal- Johnathan Drouin And Karl Alzner

Edmonton- Gets a 1st line winger to play with McDavid to push Drais down to the 2nd line could put up big numbers in Edmonton. They dump Lucic who IMO is almost 100% the reason they're not in the playoffs.

Montreal- Drouin panned out as the 1C they expected and trading him for futures could be beneficial IMO. With the 7th overall they can take a Chance at a LHD or another center. Puljujarvi brings in a potential top 6 forward.


1.) 06 Apr 2019 16:20:44
Edm needs to draft at 7 they can't trade that pick they need some help in the system so sure they save but not buy giving up a top player.

2.) 06 Apr 2019 20:16:03
No thanks.

3.) 06 Apr 2019 20:18:08
Sucks but oilers really need that 1st rounder, definitely not worth losing that AND pool party for dumping Lucic especially if Alzner is coming back no way.

4.) 07 Apr 2019 13:21:31
I would do that as a montreal fan.

5.) 07 Apr 2019 16:50:11
MTL4LIFE ofc you would haha

If oilers give up jesse and a first they Will never take back a bad contract like alzner.

6.) 07 Apr 2019 20:14:54
Drouin isn’t in there as a cap dump he holds lots of value.

7.) 07 Apr 2019 23:15:33
Couldn't find anywhere someone said drouin is a cap dump.

8.) 08 Apr 2019 10:04:27
Lucic has a NMC.

9.) 09 Apr 2019 13:01:00
I was referring to Swechamp and I’m sure Lucic would love a fresh start.



01 Apr 2019 22:26:23
Carolina is looking to trade fox as he confirmed he will not sign there. Obviously he carry's extremely little value because he is essentially a UFA and controls where he'll sign fully.

Toronto- Adam Fox

Carolina- 2nd round pick 2019

Fox would get the opportunity to be a top 4 dman on Toronto and could opt to sign there instead of playing his final year at Harvard


1.) 02 Apr 2019 01:36:01
He's a real good prospect and he was the only chance for Carolina to make that trade close to even. If a team knew he would sign with them he's worth much more then a 2nd. But not knowing whether or not he will sign makes it difficult to get anything of value for him now.

2.) 02 Apr 2019 02:40:59
I’d be so chapped if this happened wow but definite possibility!

3.) 02 Apr 2019 02:43:34
What about a later pick and bracco leafs are deep in wingers so could afford to move him. Carolina want some flashy players to add.

4.) 02 Apr 2019 17:50:11
Heard a couple days ago it's almost certain he's going to nyr, nyi or Boston weather through trade or sign after next season.

Winnipeg: Patrick Laine( RFA ) And Jacob Trouba ( RFA )

Buffalo: Rasmus Ristolainen,Sam Rienhart,Jake McCabe, Buff 1st 2019, Buf 1st 2020 And 2nd 2021

Winnipeg: gets rid of a player who is asking for to much for Winnipeg to afford him and they replace them with a more dynamic and more importantly cost controled dman. Risto challenges Buff for the 1PP spot and has been proven he can log more minutes then anyone in the nhl. Sam Rienhart May not be the goal scorer Laine is but he is still a very good top 6 forward who can play the Center or wing. Jake McCabe can potentially help out Winnipeg on the weaker left side. The 3 picks make sure Winnipeg builds a solid foundation under there already powerhouse team.

Buffalo: Gets the next up and coming goal scorer in the NHL with a change of scenery and more playing time I expect him to be a 60 goal guy. Jacob Trouba is exactly what the Sabres deffense needs. A solid defensive dman who can log top pairing minutes and support the generational defensive talent in Dahlin.


1.) 25 Mar 2019 20:06:06
Big no from Buffalo

2.) 25 Mar 2019 23:05:57
Well your opinion to me personally with all do respect I personally take with a grain of salt considering your horribly lopsided proposition towards the flames posted recently involving Laine.

3.) 26 Mar 2019 00:33:52
Laine will not be traded however I do think that if Trouba hasn't signed a long term contract by the trade deadline he will be moved. At that time there will be at least a dozen teams that will offer the Jets a good package to get Trouba. At that time Chevy will see what the Jets need to improve the Jets and make the right move.

4.) 26 Mar 2019 00:48:15
I have to say no from Buffalo as well VB. I think Ristolainen Is better or at least equal to Trouba.
However, also on the Jets end of it. I wouldn't want to trade Laine. adding Reinhart and the picks are good. but. jus seem like both team have a lot to lose.
Good post though. its interesting.

5.) 26 Mar 2019 02:30:04
Why would Winnipeg make this trade though. They are in win now mode and I see a clear decline here, they don’t need the picks they need to go for the cup now as they are contenders.

6.) 26 Mar 2019 05:56:44
Winnipeg would do it because they’d save a ton of cap space. I’d say with contracts and this season the players are having drop at least two of the picks.

7.) 26 Mar 2019 14:53:26
McJesus is right Winnipeg wouldn't want first round picks, if they clear cap it'd likely be for more cost controlled players to help their Stanley Cup push.

8.) 26 Mar 2019 19:52:33
Well also a big point of it from a Winnipeg POV is that they save a ton of cap space. While Laine clearly has a ton Of value it’s being compensated In this trade. Why I personally believe it’d be beneficial for the Jets to trade Laine?

A- Jets save a ton of cap space.
B-Laine has struggled and yet the Jets are still one of the best in the game.
C-Laine gets almost no even strength playing time on the Jets
D-He Is high profile player that obviously wants to be the go to guy and clearly he is not on the Jets with Wheeler taking his spot on the 1st line.
E-The value they get in trading Laine would be huge.

I think this makes both teams better now and in the future.

9.) 27 Mar 2019 15:06:56
A- they save cap space during their win now time. They have badish contracts they can move.
B- ya he's struggled and he's been a great playmaker of late.
C- ya he gets no minutes essentially just sits in the press box. Laine is on the second line his minutes are fine. He's 20 getting experience on the second line
D- where has it ever been said he wants to be the go to guy.
E- they get huge value keeping him.

10.) 27 Mar 2019 18:00:00
A - You don’t create cap space by trading away top end players. The Jets would be better keeping Laine and moving bottom 6 guys if they want space.

B - Laine has struggled, so there is no reason to trade him for an inferior return. Better off keeping him and letting him return to normal.

C - Shows you don’t watch the Jets.

D - Nothing like that has ever been mentioned.

E - The value of keeping Laine is greater than anything in this offer.

F - The Jets are also giving up Trouba in this deal and not being adequately compensated for his addition.

11.) 27 Mar 2019 20:49:19
A “great playmaker” I watch the jets and he is nothing close to a Elite playmaker like Getzlaf/ Backstrom/ Bergeron etc let alone “ great “ like Crosby or Gretzky playmaking wise.

Trouba And Liane will sign for most likely a combined 20 million. Jets don’t have 10 million to dump.

Risto is better then Trouba and the rest is for Laine.

Obviously Laine is the most valuable peice in the offer like what? Do you not know how trades work?

He averages a little over 15 min a night where as Mathews averages about 20.

12.) 27 Mar 2019 21:11:45
Oh my gosh Matthews averages 5 more a night. Your point being? He's not Matthews.
I said as of late. Meaning he hasn't always been a great playmaker and will likely not continue with this. He's a shooter.
Where are you getting 20 million. You've just made up a number. Is this basing Laine at 11 trouba at 9? Neither of which will happen.

13.) 27 Mar 2019 22:31:46
Well Vbb, we all knew you were terrible at player evaluations, but it also appears you are terrible at contract values as well. Kyle Dumbass might give out contacts like that (see Nylander), but not Chevy.

Risto is a huge step down from Trouba and the rest of the offer doesn't make up for that loss and also giving up Laine. So, it was just a bad offer that resulted in the Jets downgrading two players drastically to save cap space.

14.) 28 Mar 2019 11:22:38
Honestly before seing yha 3 first rd pick I togujt it was clost. Take 2 first of and it's a deal think.

15.) 28 Mar 2019 11:25:02
Honestly, I think that’s too much for Laine. Maybe I’m crazy but I think Risto, McCabe and Reinhart = Laine and Trouba. Maybe Buff adds a second, but definitely not two firsts.

I get it, Laine is a beast, potential 60 goal guy and all that, but is it really worth it to give up so much just for him? I don’t think so.

16.) 28 Mar 2019 11:25:55
Value isn't off but it doenst do much for winnipeg. I think winnipeg would ask for both nylander and mittelstad for laine.

17.) 28 Mar 2019 11:32:19
If anything Jets trade Blake Wheeler not Laine. You don't trade a 21 year old superstar to give more space to a 32 year old superstar on the decline.



17 Mar 2019 01:37:15
Ilya Kovlachuk need a change of scenery it's a shame because if you watch him you can still tell he's a great player but LA just isn't a fit. Meanwhile Montreal has a terrible PP and Kovy would be the go to offensive guy there ( although on the surface people may think he's washed up I can promise you it's 100% misuse from the coach ).

Montreal: Karl Alzner And 1st 2019

LA: Ilya Kovlachuk

LA gets a 1st round pick for taking Alzner. Montreal gets a top 6 player who is still elite on the PP.


1.) 17 Mar 2019 06:13:01
No thanks man I'd sooner alzner just rot in Laval then to give up a 1st.

2.) 17 Mar 2019 13:41:34
Kovalchuk is so old and Montreal looking for young players to rebuild. Why they want Kovalchuk? I don’t think is good trade. Kovalchuk too old.

3.) 17 Mar 2019 17:29:08
Take out the 1st and replace it with a 3rd or 4th it’s fair but habs will just buyout Alzner if they really don’t want him, they also have the cap to keep him for a year or two in Lavel if they want then buy him out.

17 Apr 2019 23:24:49
Apparently it is "100% certain" Subban is moved this offseason according to multiple sources. 29 years old with a 9 million cap hit. Reasons are due to cap concerns but some speculate it is due to injuries/locker room interactions.

Probably won't return much who do you guys think will be interested? He probably wants to go to a big market team. Pittsburgh something around Kessel? Toronto around Nylander? ( hopefully not ). New Jersey could fit him in cap wise and would be a fit but what would NJ give? Either New York?


1.) 18 Apr 2019 06:24:42

2.) 18 Apr 2019 14:08:12
Subban in a Yotes Jersey would be greasy but him and OEL would make a dirty pairing. + they have the cap.

3.) 18 Apr 2019 14:08:27

4.) 18 Apr 2019 16:24:01
@sosa I'd trade alzner for him lol.

5.) 18 Apr 2019 17:52:47
I don't want him back in MTL. We need LD more than Subban. He was a defensive liability most of the time.

6.) 18 Apr 2019 19:10:20
How about we add McCarron to sweeten the deal . lol.

7.) 18 Apr 2019 21:11:54
Even though I don't really want him back i'd go as high as alzner and Weise but that's my final offer lol.

8.) 18 Apr 2019 22:14:06
On another note wasn't his hit on Benn very similar to the one kucherov was suspended for?

9.) 18 Apr 2019 23:11:22
I didn't see the hit .

10.) 19 Apr 2019 03:46:03
It seems like Subban is gaining a reputation as a dirty player, which I hate to see since he was a favourite of mine.



14 Apr 2019 19:19:04
Lehner and the islanders 4th line are the MVPs so far in this playoffs imo.


1.) 15 Apr 2019 01:36:52
Everyone laughed at Lou Lamorello for trading for Matt Martin but that move turned out amazing. Best shut down line In the game by far at the moment.

2.) 15 Apr 2019 04:26:39
Cbj is mvp

3.) 15 Apr 2019 20:49:05
No Cbj isn't Tampa is just playing terrible like absolutely horrendous anyone who watches hockey would agree. NYI could win the Cup if there 4th line keeps playing the way they are.

4.) 16 Apr 2019 00:14:11
Islanders are also playing the worse team in the east imo. Let's see how they do against a good team in the 2nd round. If they are still winning then maybe ill jump on the bandwagon too.

5.) 17 Apr 2019 01:11:44
Pittsburgh the worst team in the east? They’re much better then Toronto. Crosby, Guzentzel, Malkin, Kessel And Letang vs Mathews, Marner, Tavares, Nylander And Rielly? I’ll take Pittsburgh’s core short term.

6.) 17 Apr 2019 15:43:04
Yeah but the problem is they have nothing else Toronto doesn’t have the best depth in the league or anything but they do have an edge on pits on both offense and even defense combine that with most of Pittsburgh’s core is aging and or one hit away from retiring and yes imo they have the worst team of all those that made the playoffs in the east.

7.) 17 Apr 2019 16:44:49
Lol yeah VBBVVVBBBV you can’t just compare half a team. that’s not how hockey works.

Where do you draw the line? The Oilers arguably have a better “core” with McDavid, Draisaitl, RNH, etc. than a lot of teams in the West. Doesn’t mean they are a better team.

8.) 17 Apr 2019 20:32:21
Okay unsportsmanlike I’ll do a in depth analysis for you of lines

1st line

Rust-Crosby-Guzentzel vs Hyman-Tavares-Marner

Pittsburgh wins

2nd line

Hornqvist-Malkin-Kessel vs Johnsson-Mathews-Kappanen

Pittsburgh wins

3rd line

Simon-Bjustad-McCann vs Marleau-Kadri-Nylander

Toronto wins

4th lines are a draw

PP Pittsburgh wins

PK Toronto wins

1st pair

Dumoulin-Letang vs Hanisey-Rielly

Pittsburgh win? It’s close

2nd pair

Matta-Gubrandson vs Muzzin and Zaitsev

Toronto wins

3rd pair

Johnson-Schultz vs Gardiner and Dermotte

Toronto probably wins

Murray vs Andersen I mean this is very debatable I mean Andersen is very good and consistent but Murray is phenomenal at times and really takes it to the next level but can be inconsistent.



16 Mar 2019 03:18:15
If team Canada were to ice a team to play in a hypothetical Olympics next season do you guys believe it's be the best team ever assembled?

Ex-Jamie Benn,Giroux,O'Rielly,Getzlaf And Marner. 2 of those 5

Marc Andre Vlasic-Shea Weber



1.) 16 Mar 2019 04:04:23
Gaudreau is an American and there got to be better options then vlasic by now.

2.) 16 Mar 2019 05:33:43
Eww I can’t believe I forgot he was American. Maybe replace him with Marner? And Vlasic is a great Defensive deffensman he'd be on the top PK. The left shot means a lot as it’s a much rarer position that puts him ahead of Subban And Letang.

3.) 16 Mar 2019 13:50:34
Yeah canada is not as strong on the left side and the fact vlasic has been there before probably gets him the nod. But I'd sooner take someone else if it was me, he hasn't looked as good lately.

4.) 16 Mar 2019 14:28:30
I can’t think of anyone else can you?

5.) 16 Mar 2019 14:33:04
Also Sweden’s Deffense is amazing.

Dahlin-Lindholm/ Gustafson

Just thought of Chabot possibly taking MAV’s spot but I think Canada would take the experience.

6.) 16 Mar 2019 15:09:12
How about room for Subban?

Very strong team. for me Team Canada 87 is the best. maybe cause I was just a boy and those guys were my idols as a kid.
But other than Gaudreau thing, good team VB.

7.) 16 Mar 2019 22:35:12
I'd sooner Brodie for one.

8.) 16 Mar 2019 23:42:58
TJ Brodie over MAV? That’s an extremely bold statement.

9.) 17 Mar 2019 06:08:56
Yeah I think he's better it's not that bold of a statement cause I'm sure there are more people that think so too.

10.) 17 Mar 2019 14:34:51
While that Canada roster is superb, I think what’s more impressive is Canada’s depth, and the fact you could ice a “Canada B” (and maybe even a “Canada C” team) that would probably give every team in the tourney (including the A-team) a run for their money, especially in a one-game elimination.

Huberdeau Point Marner
Monahan Barzal Stone
Couture Johannson Konecny
Domi Couturier Gallagher

Keith Subban
Muzzin Parayko
Chabot Ekblad
Theodore / Barrie

Binnington / Kuemper

11.) 17 Mar 2019 14:35:01
I really don’t think there is make a post about it if you want.

12.) 17 Mar 2019 16:41:40
I don't want and whether or not the 7 people on here agree with me or not wouldn't change my mind anyway lol.

13.) 17 Mar 2019 19:50:28
Unsportsmanlike you could even add Letang to that roster.

14.) 17 Mar 2019 20:37:09
You’re right the depth in Canada is amazing each of the 3 teams would compete they do something like this in the U17 championships each year.

Canada A-

Hoffman-Couture-E. Kane

Marc Andre Vlasic-Subban


Canada B



Binnigton/ Dubnyk

Canada C

E. Staal-R. Johansson-Duchene



15.) 17 Mar 2019 23:55:18
Fowler is also ’Merican.

16.) 18 Mar 2019 04:18:39
Fowler was born in Ontario.

17.) 18 Mar 2019 08:07:57
Subban before Weber imo.

18.) 18 Mar 2019 14:26:34
You should Move to Nashville boom boom.

19.) 19 Mar 2019 12:14:02
Even if Fowler was born in Ontario he’s American and his international team is the USA. Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think he’s allowed to change it. At the very least not as long as he’s playing in the US. A quick google says it’s 4 years competing for new country internationally in non IIHF events, 4 years without playing for old country, and have to spend all 4 years playing only in the new country to change without acquiring new citizenship.

20.) 19 Mar 2019 13:55:19
Yeah possibly.

21.) 20 Mar 2019 15:14:13
I wish Habby! At this point Weber is very slow and he's costing us games! Why would I want him in the supposed Olympiques.

22.) 20 Mar 2019 17:31:35
Yeah ok weber is costing us games lol. Go back to bed.

23.) 20 Mar 2019 19:19:07
Lol “ Weber costing games “.

24.) 20 Mar 2019 21:27:33
i lost habby at brodie over vlasic

someone needs to watch the sharks.

25.) 21 Mar 2019 00:29:01
How is Weber costing Habs games?

26.) 21 Mar 2019 01:33:29
Yeah vlasic has played good the last 10 games or so but before that a lot of people were thinking he was in decline me being one of them. I still think it tbh. But if he continues to play like his old self like he has the last 10 games then you put vlasic on the team over Brodie cause what separates them is the fact vlasic has been there before.

27.) 21 Mar 2019 01:41:50
Someone needs to watch for more then a handful of games. If you did you would know vlasic was horrible the first half of the year and has only got better since they cut down his minutes.

28.) 21 Mar 2019 21:05:29
i'll be honest, i haven't watched a lot of sharks, but i do watch a lot of flames and brodie isn't what team canada would need, they don't need high scoring offense only dmen, they have the offence, they need proper defensemen who can shut down ahead of produce offense.

29.) 21 Mar 2019 23:38:05
He's solid defensively.



15 Mar 2019 01:43:37
I know this is a crazy far fetched idea but should the Jets consider parting ways with Laine? He is obviously very young at only 20 it's his 3rd year in the nhl and it's his worst by a good amount and Is probably going to get a 9-10 million dollar contract. I believe he should be putting up somewhere very close to Ovie judging by skill set but that's just not the case. With Laine persona I personally believe he should be on a team where he is THE go to guy. On the wing in Winnipeg he's shadowed by Wheeler. Would it be mutually beneficial to part ways? If someone offersheeted Winnipeg at 10millon ( gain 4 1st rd picks ) would you guys match?


1.) 15 Mar 2019 03:43:08
Absolutely NOT!
Overshadowed by Wheeler?! Wheeler is a set-up man, if anything Wheeler is a compliment to Laine.
Sorry, dude, but this is “silly” and that’s putting it lightly.

2.) 15 Mar 2019 05:07:09
Parting ways with him when his value is at a low would be bad asset management.

They should try and take advantage of the down year and get him signed long-term on a team friendly deal.

3.) 15 Mar 2019 11:21:28
You really believe he’ll take a discount I believe he’ll ask for Mathews type money and some teams would pay it. If he signs long term my guess is 10 million+. And yes by overshadowed I mean he’s on the 2nd line only playing 15 min a night. He should be on a 1st line playing 20+ min.

4.) 15 Mar 2019 15:08:09
I agree with Unsportsmanlike, however, I bet Laine will want a Bridge deal. so after he gets his 50 goals, which he will ., he can cash in.

5.) 15 Mar 2019 18:37:57
I think of Laine signed an offer sheet where the Jets get 4 firsts, I think they might just let him go. That said, a bridge deal is the most likely outcome.

6.) 15 Mar 2019 19:20:05
Uh, I would agree that he is overshadowed by Wheeler. But getting rod of him now, with low value would not be a good decision. He can always bounce back.

7.) 15 Mar 2019 19:20:44
Let's not forget that up until recently, bridge deals were what all up and coming star players signed exiting their entry level deals. Could work out in the Jets favour if they can get him signed for a few years at a really good cap hit, and then sign him long term to really big bucks in a few years when they've had some other big contracts come off the books (Kulilkov for sure. maybe Buff? )

8.) 15 Mar 2019 20:13:32
The Jets will try to lock Laine up for 8 years but if they sign him to a 2 year bridge deal it gives the Jets time to see how much they want to budget for him in the future. They will match any offer sheet.



23 Feb 2019 21:43:58
Incase if you haven't heard Paniran has Vancouver as one of the teams he's willing to accept a trade too and talk to in the offseason. A Paniran-Pettersson-Boeser line would be absolutely disgusting. Doubt they'll trade for him but a offseason move makes way to much sense also Bob could go there also. Right now I believe Florida and The Rangers are the front runners but I believe the Canucks are quietly in the race

Marc Staal is a cap dump.

Well he’s a 1c in Montreal. There’s only a handful of teams at most teams where he’d be a 3 C Toronto, New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Edmonton, Washington, San Jose And Florida are the only ones and his decrease in points totals are due to a decrease of playing time. He’s playing behind two of the best players in the game. He’s a 70 point player in a 1c position.
