Ottawa: Mark Stone

Calargry: Sam Bennet, Jusso Valimaki And Tyler Parsons

Ottawa- gets young nhl player who at worst is a solid 3c but has potential to develope into an upper tier 2c. A top defender prospect and a top goalie prospect. + they trade him outside of the conference

Calargry-it's only a matter of time before Stone asks for a trade so Calargry has leverage but they still need to put bid every other team. Stone brings in exactly what they need in an Elite RW to Compliment Guadreau and Mohnahan.


1.) 19 Jun 2018 18:32:13
The fact you spelt Calgary wrong just is unsettling.

2.) 19 Jun 2018 18:32:41
As for the trade Ottawa rejects.

3.) 19 Jun 2018 19:25:34
Lol probably should’ve checked the Spelling and isn’t Stone exactly what they’re looking for why would they reject.

4.) 19 Jun 2018 19:40:36
Big no from ottawa.

5.) 19 Jun 2018 21:57:48
If they trade Karlsson which I think they will and should, I think Stone should get the C in Ottawa. One of the most undervalued players in the league.

6.) 20 Jun 2018 00:35:14
Yup you think Stone is willing to stay long term? Highly don’t he’s willing to commit in Ottawa.

7.) 20 Jun 2018 00:38:04
Yes that’s what calgary needs but Ottawa doesn’t want that for a return!

8.) 20 Jun 2018 15:41:41
I thought pending UFAs don’t get that much? As you stated above^.



19 Jun 2018 01:58:22
Ottawa: Erik Karlsson

Colorado: Connor Timmons, 17th overall and Ottawa's 2019 1st

Ottawa- gets there pick back next year so they can push forward with a full rebuild and Connor Timmons looks like he is going to be the steal of the draft he took the heaviest work load on the U20 Canadian World Junior team and looked better then Makar. Colorado probably dosent want to trade him but in order to get the best dman in the NHL that's probably the price

Colorado- they have cap space to resign Karlsson and they looked good already in the playoffs Karlsson could but then over the top.


Edmonton: Lucic and 10th overall

Ottawa: Hoffman



1.) 19 Jun 2018 06:20:07
Lol who said Hoffman has that much value anymore nah.

2.) 19 Jun 2018 06:20:28
Could get for better deal I bet Ottawa has zero leverage he’s got to go.

3.) 19 Jun 2018 14:40:47
i'd do the karlsson deal, though i'm sure they could get more?

4.) 19 Jun 2018 15:07:27
McJesus I’ll start off by saying Hoffman was traded for dirt but that trade would rid EDM of a hideous contract while giving them a consistent 25 goal scorer. This would’ve helped EDM Lucic needs to go and he’ll be hard to move.

New York Islanders: John Tavares

Saint Louis Blues: Conditional pick 3rd round pick * 2019

* Becomes a 1st round 2019 if Tavares signs with the Blues.

Saint Louis is in desperate need for a 1st line Center and Tavares would turn them from a mediocre team to a cup contender. New York Islanders essentially get a free pick.


1.) 07 Jun 2018 14:45:44
Wow lol. at least my Tavares to sens rumor was respectable. a 3rd might get them his jock strap but that's it. and a late 1st is nowhere near enough.

2.) 07 Jun 2018 15:43:50
Nothing you post is respectable.

3.) 07 Jun 2018 16:19:16
This is the dumbest post iv seen in a while and that says a lot. JT for a 3rd lmao.

4.) 07 Jun 2018 16:38:50
Gonna take a lot more than that jus to get the rights to sign him, and that's a huge gamble. As much as I like Tavares, i'm not sure parting with assets, for a 1 in probably 10 chance is going to be worth it.

5.) 07 Jun 2018 21:15:24
This post is just a reaction to what people have been posting UFA rights are worthless guys there is no was a team will send a 1st round pick for a player they can get for free.

Would you rather pay 1 million dollars for a house right now? Or get it for free a month later?

John Tavares is a great player but why give up assets for something you can get for free and may lose for nothing. I doubt a team would be willing to pay a 1st honestly you guys extremely overrate the rights of UFA.

6.) 09 Jun 2018 11:48:53
It's just for his rights. Giving up a mid pick for an extra few weeks to try and convince a player like that to sign to your team could be worth it. That's all. It's not a for sure thing he would sign there.
And ya, Rambone, You post the most crazy Sens biased posts ever. Not one to call someone out there man.



25 May 2018 02:59:03
So apparently the Nashville Predators are actively shoping deffensman PK Subban. This is shocking considering the Predators have been so successful.

PK Subban ( 29 ) is native of Toronto, Ontario and spent the previous 9 seasons between Nashville and the Montreal Canadians. During the 2012-2013 a lockout shortened season PK Subban established him self as an elite defender by winning the Norris trophy as the leagues top defender.

2017-2018 statistics

82GP 16G 43A 59P 18+/-

Possible reason to trade

1. He wore out his welcome in the dressing room

2. The predators are trying to get cap to make a push for Tavares

Perhaps the team with the biggest need for a number 1 RHD is Toronto and David Poile has a reputation of of making blockbuster trades.

My offer as a leafs fan.

Toronto: William Nylander, Timothy Liljegren and 25th overall

Nashville: PK Subban and Nick Bonino

Toronto: The Leafs desperately need a Franchise dman and Subban is that. He's a hometown boy and would quickly become a fan favourite. He loves the big markets. Nick Bonino fill the 3c void. To get Tavares they'll need to trade 1 of Bonino/Turris or Johanson

Nashville: the Predators gain cap space to make a push for Tavares well getting back a first line winger to upgrade Avidsson, a potential replacement for subban and a pick bath in this years draft.

Value wise this probably favours the preds but no team would give more.


1.) 25 May 2018 05:01:08
I think it’s too much for Subban, I like Subban and everything but if the leafs are to give up that package I’d sooner they go after drew doughty, Ekblad, Hamilton or even Ristolainen. Not that I think those guys are available. Don’t forget the rebuild is not quite done yet, too early to start trading away youth, especially core youth players. I’d like to see what liljegren can do before they trade him. Also good as PK is I wouldn’t say he’s a “franchise player”.

2.) 25 May 2018 05:08:26
Pk talked mad rubbish about Toronto when he was drafted by Montreal. He won't be welcomed here. And he's been described as an issue in the dressing room, so a instant pass from toronto.

3.) 25 May 2018 12:32:04
I would not touch Hamilton but the other 3 d listed are nice and any elite dman would be welcomed in Toronto.

4.) 25 May 2018 15:03:06
Wouldn’t pay that much for subban. Between a ‘promote me before a team’ attitude and a massive salary, I don’t see a fit. Leafs have built a pretty close knit team of talented young players that they need to sign and hope to sign a bit below market value to keep it all together. Bringing in a big personality/ ego with a massive contract could really mess with that structure and hierarchy. It’s hard to ask a guy like marner or Matthews to take less than they’re worth after what they have done for you since being drafted when you’re willing to give assets and pay that kind of salary to a guy that hasn’t done anything for you.

With a new GM it seems like Carolina is going to make some moves and Faulk could be had he'd be a great fit on the oilers top pp

Option 1

Edmonton: Jesse Puljujarvi and Tyler Benson

Carolina: Justin Faulk

Edmonton: gets a dynamic presence on the top PP and could potentially thrive sheltered under a defensive minded Larsson paired with Nurse or Reunite him with Sekera.

Carolina: while i don't like to use the term bust it does not look like Jesse Puljujarvi will reach his potential of being a game changer like Blake Wheeler. He could still be a very effective top 6 player and has a small chance of blowing up with Aho with prior chemistry.

Option 2

Edmonton: Milan Lucic*, Jesse Puljujarvi and 10th overall

Carolina: Justin Faulk, Justin Willams and 42nd overall

* hopefully Lucic will waive his MNTC if he feels unwanted in Edmonton

Edmonton: rids then selves of a useless atrocious contract while getting a top 4 dman and a great presance in Williams who is a veteran Guznetzel in the playoffs.

Carolina: can afford to take back a bad contract and by doing this they get two very good pieces for their rebuild.


1.) 20 May 2018 19:34:50
Jesus. With how much you talk down Faulk in surprised you think the Oilers should trade Puljujarvi for him.

2.) 20 May 2018 20:05:44
Benson won’t be included.
Second one obvious no from Oilers jeez.

3.) 20 May 2018 20:46:53
Lucic won't waive to go to Carolina.
You would have better chances asking Sekera to waive to go to Carolina where he has played before if you want to add a cap dump from Edm.
But I actually believe both Lucic and Sekera will be an Oiler opening night next season. Lucic for sure anyways.

4.) 20 May 2018 21:22:27
@Yup Faulk is still a great top PP dman but besides that he’s subpar at best. Also I’m not sure what makes you think he won’t waive but I’ll respect it.

@McJesus I believe you underrate the negative value Lucic holds and on top of that they’re getting 3 good pieces I’d make that trade from the oilers POV. They could add a good peice from FA on top of that package.

Ottawa: Hoffman and Ottawa's 5th round pick 2020 + a no name prospect

San Jose: Boedker and San Jose 5th round pick 2020 + a no name prospect

Confirmed trade

Rambo? Where is the 1st round pick and elite prospect.

Trades like this show how little we know about the nhl this trade wasn't to maximize value for the rebuild it was a statement about there commitment to make Ottawa a better organization and to possibly resign Karlsson


1.) 19 Jun 2018 16:05:13
Now he's gone to florida lol.

2.) 19 Jun 2018 16:12:55
Hopefully by getting Hoffman Florida won't want pacioretty now.

3.) 20 Jun 2018 04:44:12
Not that I'd mind a pacioretty trade just wouldn't really want to play against him that often and I really don't want bjustad.

4.) 20 Jun 2018 06:10:42
Doubt Bjustad would be the main piece back anyway also it’s only one season.

5.) 20 Jun 2018 14:10:33
I think florida would be a place where he would have resigned but I guess overall it doesn't matter where he goes if they get back a decent return. florida would have almost had to give up bjusgstad if they were indeed interested because they didn't have much else that habs would have wanted that they would have been willing to give up. If not I guess matheson or their 1st pick might have done it too.

6.) 20 Jun 2018 16:15:53
I’d think the 1st round pick is more logical.

7.) 20 Jun 2018 16:55:22
Yeah probably but I doubt there is any chance of them trading that after the picks they traded for hoffman.



19 May 2018 23:34:06
This is a post comparing Jake Gardiner of the Toronto Maple Leafs to Justin Faulk of the Carolina Hurricanes.

Offensive Production for the 2017-2018 season

Jake Gardiner- 82GP 5G 47A 52P TOI 22:32 TOI/PP 2:04

Justin Faulk- 78GP 8G 23A 31P TOI 22:16 TOI/PP 2:56

Offensive Production for the 2016-2017 season

Jake Gardiner-82GP 9G 34A 43P +26

Justin Faulk- 75GP 17G 20A 37P -18

As you can see statistically Gardiner is the superior player offensively and Faulk is regressing while Gardiner is improving. Faulk has the Supirior goal scoring ability but his stats are inflated due to supirior exposure to the top PP compared to Gardiner.

Defensive statistics

Gardiner- +9

Faulk- -26

Jake Gardiner proves to be the superior defensive dman by far according to advanced statistics. I'll give you guys a link to compare the two. Please visit Hockeyrefernce.com to view advanced statistics.

So according to statistics Jake Gardiner is a top pairing dman and is far superior to Faulk. Now I'm sure if someone attempts to argue they'll bring up points such as "+- is a team stat" " Toronto is much Better then Carolina " "advanced stats are overrated ". But statistics prove that the only thing Faulk is better at is scoring on the PP. also Faulk was sheltered under a stud top line of Slavin and Pesce. While Gardiner was started mostly in the D Zone. Also his D partner Hanfin is much superior then Zaitsev.


1.) 20 May 2018 00:33:55
I’m not one for it, but I’d look at HERO/ WAR charts for defensive stats. Idk what they are on either, but they provide a much clearer defensive idea of a player than plus minus, imo.

However, I do agree that Gardiner is given a lot of slack and has recieved hugely negative feedback for what was, altogether, a rather impressive season for him. Don’t take me wrong, I’m not a ‘Jake Gardiner fan’, I’d prefer him to be traded, but the only reason for that is because Torontos defensive core is literally full of players like him, Dermott, Zaitsev, Rielly, etc. But people, and especially Leaf fans treat him he's like worth a meh pick and a couple of roster throwaway because of his poor play in game seven. Overall, for his seasons play, he is worth a pretty good amount - and teams in dire need of PP dmen (Edmonton, Montreal, Detroit, Rangers, Chicago, Vancouver) could certainly use him and may give up a decent amount for him.

2.) 20 May 2018 01:27:00
So I took a look at these advanced stats:
Hits: Faulk (77 more)
Blocks: Gardiner (13 more)
Takeaways: Faulk (44 more)
Giveaways: Faulk (39 less)
Possession stats:
Corsi: Faulk (5% better)
Fenwick: Faulk (4.6% better)
Shots: Faulk (78 more)
Shooting %: Equal

Based on this I’m not sure what you mean Gardiner is superior defensively. I agree Gardiner is far and away better offensively. But defensively Faulk shows he’s a very good d man and Gardiner is average if not below.

3.) 20 May 2018 02:08:11
I agree Hero charts are much better then +- but I just didn’t wanna type out all those stats lol that’s why I gave a suggested link.

4.) 20 May 2018 12:31:12
Shots, hits aren’t really defensive numbers but i didn’t think the such close stats meant much. ( corsi and fenwick ) Also didn’t really look at the Takeaway/ giveaway ratio that’s Gardiners biggest fault. Gardiner is still the better dman. Yup would you like to chip in it seems like you have a lot to say.

5.) 21 May 2018 00:45:00
Overall I would agree that gardiner is slightly better I've been saying faulk is overrated for years.

6.) 24 May 2018 16:27:03
I don’t think there’s a huge difference either way besides the obvious lefty/ righty thing. But on this site, there’s so many people talk about Faulk like he’s a stud and Gardiner gets a tough go. I think the truth is somewhere in the middle. They’re both probably 3rd men on a good squad. 2nd on an average one.



27 Apr 2018 02:12:35
Toronto: Connor Brown, Jeramy Bracco, 2019 2nd and 21st overall

Calargry: Mark Girodano

Leafs: get a reliable 1d stop gap until one is drafted

Calargry: shakes up their roster, gets a good top 9 Forward to play with Guadreau and Mohnahan, a high potential prospect compared to Johnny Guadreau, a 2nd next year back and a 1st pick in this years


1.) 27 Apr 2018 18:00:10
Too much for an old Gio.

2.) 30 Apr 2018 11:15:01
So you guys are telling me you'd be okay as leafs fan to give up that much for 34 year old Gio? That would be worse then the Weber trade omg.



19 Jul 2016 06:24:55
Is it just me or is Kyle Connor overrated by the latest top 50 prospects he was ranked 4th behind Mathews, Laine and Dylan Strome.

I mean he is a good prospect he probably deserved to win the Hoby Baker award but do you guys seriously think he should be ranked ahead of guys like Mitch Marner, Jesse Puljujjarvi, Ivan Provonov, William Nylander and Matt Murray.


1.) 19 Jul 2016 12:43:24
I think it is slightly overrated. I would have him somewhere in the 7-10 range.

2.) 19 Jul 2016 15:48:57
With rookies you never know. usually it depends on his line mates, staying healthy and the confidence his coach has in him to use him on the power play, penalty killing, over time and minutes of play game. Age and experience also plays a factor. A 20 year old is usually better prepared than an 18 year old. Look at Chicago last year. But great skill usually rises to the top.

3.) 19 Jul 2016 16:14:11
Yah 7-10 seems good to me.

4.) 19 Jul 2016 20:32:36
I can't believe all you guys think Kyle Connor is a better prospect then Jesse Pulj. That's pretty sad.



03 Jul 2016 01:29:39
Polak resigns with Leafs. Pretty good signing he will be a mentor for the young guys and bring a physical presence on the blue line it's a 1 year deal so it can't be a bad signing. They may be able to acquire a pick at the deadline. All in all I'm just glad they didn't go out and sign Kris Russel to a ridiculous contract.

Also if linden Vey is worth a 2nd Hutton definitely is nathen Beaulieau got a 3rd last year and that was thought to be a steal.

Risto a top 5 dman? Top 5 dman on the Leafs maybe. Risto is a great number 2 on any team.

Not saying I’d trade Mathews for Paryanko as a leafs fan because Marner/ Mathews are untouchable but if I were the Blues GM the starting point for Paryanko would be a young Elite 1C. He’d be the last player on the Blues I’d trade. Paryanko is a young Shea Weber who can skate 2x as fast but just needs to utilize his shot I strongly believe Paryanko dosent excel with the Blues coaching staff. He really needs to use is shot more often on the PP and he’d be in the 50-60 Point Catagory.
