19 May 2019 21:34:29
No thanks on the Winnipeg trade.

19 May 2019 22:26:56
Jets wouldn't make this trade.

19 May 2019 23:30:51
I'd like to keep Danualt on Habs. he will never be a star, however he is starting to remind me of Guy Carbonneau. a really solid 2 way player, who will start to generate some Selke talk as he gains more experience. by far Bergevins best trade.

20 May 2019 04:05:42
Sosa i agree but value wise wouldn't that be enough for danault. Fills their need on defence aswell.
Brodie - Weber
Mete - Petry

20 May 2019 14:11:17
Huge no from Calgary on the leddy Trade leafs counter with Kappanen, Rights to Gardiner and a 2020 1st for Ras Andersson. He’s probably the last dman Calgary trades.

21 May 2019 21:43:03
I am a Calgary Habs fan, although I do watch many Flames games. TJ Brodie is on the decline and is now inconsistent. Not a good addition to the Habs defense.

19 May 2019 15:30:57
Montreal:
E. Malkin C
K. Letang D

Pittsburgh:
J. Drouin LW
S. Weber D (1million retained)
1st 2019
2nd 2020

19 May 2019 15:47:29
No from Pits.

18 May 2019 16:33:37
To MTL : 4th overall pick

To Colorado : 15th overall pick + Jonathan Drouin

Drouin reunite with Nathan Mackinnon + Gabriel Landeskog shuffle down to the second line beside Kerfoot + Colorado draft Arthur Kaliyev (almost NHL ready) with the 15th overall pick.

Toward the end of next season, Colorado top 6 could be :

Drouin - Mackinnon - Rantanen
Landeskog - Kerfoot - Kaliyev

MTL gets a good LHD (Byram)

18 May 2019 17:13:16
Drouin Dosent move them up that far maybe up to 8th but not 4th.

18 May 2019 19:57:27
I tried that but with Puljujarvi VB and I don’t think people liked it. Lol but Montreal would have a good chance for Byram so I think they’d do it. And Colorado needs to get deeper up front and they have a good D core so I think it works.

18 May 2019 20:17:05
@ Ebsolutely Yeah. Personally, I think it's a win-win situation for both team. I wouldn't mind to add Phil Danault as an extra piece. I think Ryan Poehling is 100% NHL ready to play on the 3rd line (Domi and Kotka centering the first 2 lines)

18 May 2019 20:21:03
Yah I just don’t think Drouin is enough to move them to a top 5 pick.

19 May 2019 00:53:44
Drouin is such very good player. He should be in Edmonton. We can use him. Maybe Colorado does make this trade. They made playoffs this year. They might want Drouin rather than wait for prospect to develop.

19 May 2019 20:18:47
wow that's an absolute STEAL if colorado made that, but that's extremely foolish for montreal to make. there is 0% that 4th pick carries more value than drouin + 15th. I know you think Byram will be available at 4 as you stated, but he won't be available. he's pretty much guarenteed to go to chicago unless they take a forward, which is unlikely when you have a dman with this much potential there.

18 May 2019 14:26:29
Rangers- Mika Zibanajad And 20th overall

Canadians- Jesperi Kotekneimi And Johnathan Drouin

Rangers: Jesperi Kotekneimi is a potential elite C that fits the Rangers rebuild age wise. Johnathan Drouin has a ton of talent and a change of scenery could help him reach his full potential. Losing Zibanajad is obviously huge as he's by far the Rangers best player but they are in no position to compete so opting for a Younger high potential C is what I'd do if I were the Rangers GM.

Canadians: The Habs looked very good to start off the year but fell off of an cliff for some reason. I'm assuming they're trying to win now and Zibanajad would make their team much better. He's a true 1C that the Habs lack coming off of a 30 goal 70+ point season on a weak Rangers team I believe Zib would be a PPG player in Montreal. Not to mention he's also on an amazing contract.

18 May 2019 14:47:19
Value is fair, but I just don't think the Rangers want to trade Zib. He is their best player right now and could very well be the next captain. While I would love to add those two players, the Rangers don't exactly have a lot of roster room anymore either.

18 May 2019 15:41:03
Understandable but dosent a 19 year old C like Kotekneimi that has tremendous potential not fit in with the Rangers more then a prime Zib?

18 May 2019 18:36:51
Yeah kotkaniemi fits in way better with the habs plans too.

18 May 2019 19:36:53
Really habby? You think Weber and Price will be stars when he reaches his prime. I disagree I believe the Habs cup window is small.

18 May 2019 19:55:02
both assets from NY are worse than either from MTL so I don't think the canadiens would be wise to do this.

18 May 2019 20:22:26
Zib is worse in what world? He’s a 1C I’d put him on Par with Sean Monahan just hasn’t played with talent.

18 May 2019 20:24:27
Zabinahwhatever is nothing special. no thanks from Habs.

18 May 2019 20:45:01
No for KK, I don't mind Drouin for Zib straight up!

18 May 2019 21:44:53
In the real world vbbbb.

18 May 2019 23:30:10
You guys are undervaluing Zib by a lot he’d be the best forward on the Habs in the last 10 years by a wide margin and on the leafs he’s up there with Mathews, Tavares and Marner.

19 May 2019 01:10:54
Would Zibanejad accept a trade to Montreal I wonder? But it does not matter. I believe this is not a good offer for Montreal to accept. They want to get younger too. And Zibanejad is free agent in a couple years. Kotkaniemi is in Montreal for a very long time.

19 May 2019 07:02:03
I agree with vb.

19 May 2019 20:13:21
Helll noooooo. Kotkaniemi is untouchable unless we can get a young #1C like McDavid, Eichel, Matthews ect.

19 May 2019 20:16:14
lol doesn't make any sense for montreal at all.

15 May 2019 05:04:49
To MTL : 2019 1st round (6th overall)
+ Henrik Zetterberg contract (2 years left) + Johan Franzen contract (1 year left)

To Detroit : 2019 1st round (15th overall)

15 May 2019 10:48:03
Dumbest thing I’ve ever seen those two contacts don’t hurt Detroit at all considering they’re rebuilding.

15 May 2019 04:42:25
There's some rumours that Pittsburgh is going to be blowing up the roster this summer and along with the fact that Montreal may make a big push for Matt Duchene I think this trade could make sense if they sign Duchene

Montreal: Philip Danault

Pittsburgh: Olli Maatta

Tatar-Duchene-Gallagher
Drouin-Koktaniemi-Domi
Lehkonen-Suzuki-Shaw
Byron-Poehling-Armia
Hudon-Weal-Thompson

Maatta-Weber
Mete-Petry
Kulak-Juulsen
Reilly-Brook
-Folin

15 May 2019 10:48:28
No from Montreal Matta fell of a cliff.

16 May 2019 03:42:42
Danault is a pretty good player, young, good contract. think it would be a bad idea to trade him for a project guy you hope gets back on track.

16 May 2019 09:48:32
Danault is now our Plekanec . and he was a good player. This was Bergevin best trade IMO. he won't trade him away.

16 May 2019 12:43:12
I feel Danault could fetch more

18 May 2019 21:01:11
A few years ago I would have said yes but now I would rather draft some young left handed defensemen and keep Danault. He's a guy that can be a very good 3rd liner and a good and temporary 2nd line center.

19 May 2019 00:38:28
I could've swore danault was montreals #1 center last year.

10 May 2019 19:13:33
To MTL : Evgeni Malkin


To Pittsburgh : Phil Danault + Shea Weber

Malkin has 4 years left on his contract. Weber still has 8.

I don't think it's a bad trade. By the time Malkin finish off his contract, Weber will only have 4 years left. Danault is the perfect player to fit behind Crosby. At the same time, MTL gets a little upgrade on their top 6.

10 May 2019 19:40:14
‘A littl upgrade to their top 6’

Aside from Webers contract being brutal, this is sinply a no from Pittsburgh.

10 May 2019 20:10:13
hahahah what a post lol christ.

11 May 2019 00:40:32
😂😂😂.

11 May 2019 11:49:30
I'd rather keep Danault and Weber. 50 points center for less then 4 million and only 26 years old is very valuable.

09 May 2019 06:03:32
Montreal : Alzner + Hudon

Edmonton: Lucic + puljujarvi

09 May 2019 14:57:07
No wtf lol.

09 May 2019 16:10:33
Lucic can't go to MTL after spearing groins in the playoffs a few years back.

09 May 2019 20:38:53
Edmonton adds #8 and Montreal adds there 1st.

10 May 2019 05:54:47
Do not all these players suck? Why would either team make this trade? Edmonton has so very many defense make too much money. Now they need most overpaid AHL defenseman too? Lucic has no words left to be described for him. He is so very bad. He only gets points when he is lucky and the other team has flu sickness and play backups goalie. He cannot score goals but only into empty net.

11 May 2019 02:08:24
As a habs fan I would never ever touch that we have lots of bottom 6 wingers and I value puljujarvi like a 3rd round pick so ummmm no hell no.

07 May 2019 21:24:00
Montreal trades:

Josh brook, andrew shaw.

Calgary trades: Noah hanifin, maybe small cap dump(Frolik?)

(I feel like Andrew Shaw would really thrive playing on the 1st line with monahan and gaudreau he is really good defensively and on a good contract in his prime. He proved last year that playing with a good playmaker will really set him off. He could really be a good piece to balance out Calgary's first line. On top they get a really food prospect in Josh brook. Montreal finally get a top4LHD they were looking for all this time and Calgary trade a player from a position of strength to get 2 players from positions they need).

07 May 2019 22:22:46
As a have fan I love this wich proabably means Calgary wont.

07 May 2019 22:41:25
Yah it’s really not close for Hanfin. It’d take Domi+ imo which most likely isn’t something the Habs are interested in.

08 May 2019 02:00:44
Calgary may trade Brodie but don't think theyd think of trading hanifin. Plus would take a lot better package. Shaw is not the centre piece to get a solid young defenceman. I really don't think that gets you Brodie tbh.

08 May 2019 03:50:24
Not enough for Hanifin imo

08 May 2019 18:42:44
Domi+ for Hanifin hahaha
My god worse than my proposal.

08 May 2019 18:45:36
@Shootsmcgee well tbh i wouldn't trade brook alone for brodie.

08 May 2019 23:53:16
I get he's a young player that might become something but it's still an if. Brodie you know what you're getting. he's kinda a Gardiner type, they're good players but have lapses often. Both good offensive de but make mistakes in their own end a little too often.

08 May 2019 23:56:57
And shaw is a cap dump. He could play first line but definitely suited for 3rd or 4th line. I'm a Blackhawks fan so have watched him a lot. Valuable guy but just not at his salary. Could prove me wrong getting a chance on flames top line like ferland but never really been consistent.

09 May 2019 02:31:15
How is it worse? Hanfin is potentially an elite dman and would instantly be on Montreal’s top pairing he’d be Great with Weber. In fact i think he’d excel with Weber more then he would with any other dman in the game.

12 May 2019 21:25:14
If you think Hanafin for Shaw is a good deal.
Then I vote for you to be EDM’s new GM. 🙄

04 May 2019 18:52:28
3 team trade.

Winnipeg trades: Jacob trouba, 2019 4th.

Toronto trades: Marleau, Lilijgren, 2020 1st, kapanen.

Montreal trades: Peca, 2019 3rd, lehkonen.


Montreal acquires: Marleau, Kapanen.

Winnipeg acquires: lilijgren, 2020 1st, 2019 3rd(MTL),Peca.

Toronto aquires: Trouba, 2019 4th(WPG), Lehkonen.

04 May 2019 18:59:01
A big no from the Jets as the return for Trouba is way too little.

04 May 2019 21:28:27
No chance from Winnipeg. The Jets get at least that much moving Trouba at the TDL as a pure rental.

05 May 2019 12:00:27
Maher Trouva rental us Kap + lilijegreen tops.

05 May 2019 18:53:06
Come again boom boom. I didn’t catch that.

07 May 2019 21:25:01
Marcus, Trouba rental is Kap+ Lilijgreen tops.

04 May 2019 18:50:32
Montreal trades: Josh brook, 2019 3rd.

Toronto traded: Rasmus Sandin.

Montreal drafts: Moritz Seider.

04 May 2019 19:12:37
I really like sandin and have said it several times on here based on where they were picked I said him and veleno were my two favourite picks of that draft. But this is one of those situations where both teams are probably happy just keeping their prospects.

05 May 2019 23:55:07
But is good trade for to address position of weakness. Both teams trade from area of strength to address area of weakness, yes? Is very much good trade when looked at it as such. Both players are very good, yes. And oh so close in ranking. But right hand against left hand, and that just maybe is reason for trade.

07 May 2019 21:26:59
Zamboni, both players play the same position, yes? How does is adress team needs it dosnt do nothing for team needs.

04 May 2019 16:48:59
WPG: Perrault
MON: Hudon

Jets get rid of salary and get a depth F, Canadiens get a hometown player that can play up and down the roster.

04 May 2019 17:48:20
Perrault can get a better return.

02 May 2019 13:15:07
Montreal trades: Peca/ deslauriers/ Hudon/ Reilly (one of them)

Tampa bay trades: Ryan Callahan, alex barre boulet, 2019 5th.

03 May 2019 12:19:49
decent deal. i'd see tampa doing it for peca or hudon. i don't know muc about boulet so maybe a better prospect or pick.

04 May 2019 18:43:03
Don't think we're trading ABB.

02 May 2019 13:12:14

lmao lehk for 2 high seconds no thanks.

02 May 2019 16:05:18
Chicago isn't trading a possible future stud deman for an aging top 6 winger.

03 May 2019 07:19:01
Cmon man :/

03 May 2019 12:12:50
bruh, that chicago trade isn't even close, maybe seabrook for tatar would be closer.

03 May 2019 23:51:05
Maybe Beaudin for Poehling? Seems way more fair.

04 May 2019 18:48:52
Seabrook for Tatar better come with Beaudoin and a first bcuz Seabrook is a huge cap dump.

04 May 2019 18:51:26
Lol by all means Seadbrook's contract is right behind Lucic's contract as worst in nhl.

01 May 2019 15:51:30

01 May 2019 19:40:52
Gallagher to the sens for a 3rd?

01 May 2019 20:44:20
Dosent come close to kriender.

01 May 2019 21:04:41
Kreider is still an enemy to Habs.
eff that guy. Lol.

02 May 2019 13:18:17
Lol no to all from both teams. why sell low on Drouin. No interest on kreider specially for that price lol. No interest in brock nelson.

29 Apr 2019 16:37:12
Some Mtl trades let me know what you guys think.

MTL trades: Tomas tatar(4.8m), Hudon, 2019 3rd.

Chicago trades: Brandon Saad(6m).

(Cap relief for chicago and Mtl gets a bit younger)

MTL trades: Arrturi lehkonen, Cale fleury.

Leafs trade: Marleau, Sandin, 2019 2nd.

(Cap relief for toronto to be able to resign marner, Kapanen and Lehkonen also receive fleury who might be nhl ready this coming year. Mtl gets a good LHD prospect and can afford to take marleau's cap dump as well as receiving 2 picks)

Mtl Drafts: Phillip Broberg

29 Apr 2019 16:33:05
Ott:Ryan,2rd2019,3rd2019

Mtl:Alzner

Mtl gets a pkywr that's actually in the nhl but he's a third line player at most . Ottawa gets 2 less years of contract at 3 million less

29 Apr 2019 23:53:17
Both players have the same term remaining alzner has 3 more years and Ryan has 3 more years.

30 Apr 2019 23:40:28
the sens send their 2nd and 3rd round picks to make this deal? get real!

28 Apr 2019 06:01:16
Mtl- alzner-peca-hudon-3rd pick

Ott- ryan

28 Apr 2019 16:03:27
as a sens fan I don't see how this is fair for the habs, if getting rid of Ryans contract was that easy it would be great.

28 Apr 2019 19:48:48
if ottawa could get that package for ryan then i'm sure they would have traded him a long time ago.

28 Apr 2019 19:52:36
Alzner's contract not much better than Ryan's.

28 Apr 2019 21:49:19
Not much better? Ya it’s not great but Sens pay Ryan 7+ for like 5 more years Alzner is just under 5 for 3.

28 Apr 2019 23:32:32
They actually both have 3 years left. At least Ryan played in the NHL last year. Could still be a 40-50 point player.

29 Apr 2019 01:11:37
But why would Montreal want Ryan? I do not understand why Montreal would even consider this trade. Is not good trade, no.

25 Apr 2019 17:57:40
Habs off season plan.

Sign Gardiner 6 x 7years

Trade 2019 first, second, Suzuki, Alzner for cap

25 Apr 2019 18:46:30
Why would we trade for cap when we already have lots of space. Also I wouldn't mind gardiner for the 2nd or 3rd pair but not not at that price tag.

25 Apr 2019 19:28:08
gardiner ain't getting 6 mil and why tf would you blow up and trade away your first round pick and your top prospect just to get rid of one contract are you high.

25 Apr 2019 20:50:53
I’ll bet any amount of money Gardiner gets over 6 mil in free agency some team will overpay.

25 Apr 2019 21:17:55
Delusional person that doesn't know anything about hockey. Gardiner is the next alzner.

25 Apr 2019 21:50:26
I make fun of Gardiner all the time but in reality I feel sorry for him. Hopefully he signs with solid defensively talented team, to be a 4/ 5 d-man and power play person, in a market that doesn't scrutinize his every move.

25 Apr 2019 23:47:12
I absolutely agree with vbb’s. As much as I’m not a fan of Gardiner, he is a very good 40-50 pt puck moving defenseman. I think someone will pay 6. MTL4LIFE I think Gardiner is a totally different player than Alzner. Gardiner is a smooth skating puck mover, terrible in his zone. Alzner is a stay at home defenseman that can’t skate.

26 Apr 2019 00:58:28
Gardiner could definitely get $6 mln in free agency.

Don’t think it’s a good idea tho, especially if it’s a longer-term deal.

26 Apr 2019 02:06:58
I can see a team offering 6 mil or more but in saying that he did have a down year with a fairly serious injury that might make some teams a little hesistant.

26 Apr 2019 06:44:38
Yes habby his back injury could be a concern. Like islandjet said, if Gardiner played with a defensive minded d man, or team, he would be much better.

26 Apr 2019 06:58:16
He would for sure I agree I also think he's best suited as a strictly 2nd pair dman. 19 to 20 mins a game.

26 Apr 2019 09:17:09
why would they trade suzuki? wasn't he main piece back in the patches trade? i'd think they'd at least see what they have in him in nhl before trading him.

26 Apr 2019 17:33:34
Sorry boys. Kopitar was supposed to be added. Those pieces and Alzner for cap. Lol. My bad. I think Gardiner will be a beauty beside Weber. I think LA is going to rebuild and the trade above would be a great start.

22 Apr 2019 15:23:24

Trade:
WPG: Trouba, Dano

WPG: Kulikov, 5th Round Pick 2019
ARZ: 7th Round Pick 2019

Sign Free Agents:
Simmonds 1 year x $5M
Brassard 1 year x $4M

22 Apr 2019 17:42:59
Laine won’t take less then 10.

22 Apr 2019 18:25:22
lol wat vbvbbbvbvbvbvbvvv?

Kucherov extended for $9.5 mln last summer. I really don't see how Laine would be able to ask for anything North of that, and that would be on a long-term deal (not a 3-year as indicated above) .

22 Apr 2019 18:40:30
unsports, tampa has one of the best tax systems in the league as they are not nearly taxed as much as other teams in the league and it is incredibly unfair. Kucherov technically makes the most money (or top 2) after taxes in the entire league i read. So he did not require to sign a massive deal of 11 mil+. Laine for example if he signed a contract for around 10mil a year he's probs going to walk away with around 5mil or so, its a huge flaw in the system and it should be worked out so its fair throughout the league.

22 Apr 2019 18:42:09
Absolutely agree with vb, Laine will be around 10mil. Also you can not compare him to Kucherov as the way those cities gets taxed is completely different and it’s so unfair such a joke. Besides living in Tampa with all the nice weather they also have the lowest tax rates or something.

22 Apr 2019 20:03:24
I think that's why it's a bridge deal though, shorter term at less money.

yes he stated it was a bridge deal, but laine won't take that he will want a long term contract for sure. not sure if vb also meant it that way or not (who knows with him lol) but for sure i agree with him laine will be 10 or north of it per year and i'm sure he goes that route.

While you are correct in pointing out the lower tax rate in Florida, the impact is overstated. For starters, income is taxed where earned, so only the home games matter in that regard. Also, there are several ways of circumventing that (structure of contract — maximizing the bonus and minimizing the salary, and also fancy footwork from a tax accounting standpoint that I won’t delve into here) .

Anyways, if the over/ under on a 3 year deal for Laine is $10 mln, I will take the under and gladly eat crow if I am proven wrong this summer.

Montreal is probably not going to resign mccarron so you can have him for free and keep Perrault or just dump him somewhere else.

oh for sure man if he indeed signs a bridge contract it will be under 10mil total then unless they go let's say 4mil/ year for the bridge. But no way Laine accepts that he for sure has proved his case for a long term contract.

On a 10M contract I think the most difference there could be in taxes paid is about 1.5M depending on the cities. Seen an article from Oil nation comparing state taxes and how much would be paid on a 9.5M contract when Kucherov signed his. Also have to consider exchange rate because they get paid in US dollar.

As far as Laine’s contract goes, it’s a tough one. How can you pay a player 10+ after a 50 point season? A bridge deal makes sense for both parties unless Winnipeg thinks they can get him at a bargain long term.

Isnt every team issue contracts in USD? Pretty positive its all american dollars never canadian, but i could be wrong i have no idea.

I believe that Laine will sign a 8 year $9 mil per deal as when it expires he is only 29 and could get another big pay day. With the collective bargaining deal set to expire soon who knows what new signing restrictions will be put into place. Teams don't want to be holding horrible contracts like Lucic's so I foresee something drastic happening. If the Jets trade Trouba at the draft then they will need money to pay the player they will get in return so I see Hendricks, Beaulieu not being offered a contract and Tanev, Broisart and Copp being offered less money to stay. Perreault and Kulikov being packaged with another player to get some extra draft picks.

Guys don't start the tax thing again. It a huge advantage for cities with no state tax. It's all on google for everyone to see. tampa has a huge advantage because of this that's why all their signings look like a bargain. Now with there playoff performance it would lead you to think it's not an advantage but it is lol.

I agree. The NHL needs to find a way to level out the tax advantage. I am a Habs fan and their taxes are one of the highest.

If anything he’ll get offersheeted if they low ball him.

23 Apr 2019 16:45:30
If its over 10M then it’ll cost the team 4 1st round picks so depending on the team I wouldn’t match it.

I don't know what's worse, my trades or Vbb's comments.
