Buffalo: Ristolainen
Nashville: Turris + 2nd
Buffalo: ristolainen
NJD: Zacha
Buffalo: Ristolainen
Montreal: Danault + 3rd

Buffalo then signs Jake Gardiner.

07 Aug 2019 14:59:25
1. Nobody should trade for Kyle Turris right now. The fact that he scored only 23P in 55 games and has 5 more years left at 6 AAV should scare teams away.
Buffalo loses the first trade. Also, where would Turris even play? Mittelstadt is pretty much locked for the 2nd line centre. Evan Rodriguez is a lock for the third line. The 2nd round pick doesn't help them whatsoever as they are trying to get good right now. If they trade for Turris, they would be 500k over the salary cap.

2. Buffalo loses the second trade by a lot. Say what you want, Pavel Zacha is a bust. Never played a full season and never scored more than 25 points. He is a solid third liner right now. Nothing more. Ristolainen for a 3rd liner? Come on now.

3. Don't see why Montreal does this tbh. Value might be close, but there is very little reason for Montreal. Their right side is locked up with Shea Weber (7.8x7yrs) and Jeff Petry (5.5x2yrs) .

Also, explain to me with what salary cap is Buffalo going to sign Jake Gardiner? As of right now, they literally have 0 in cap space left. Some of their players' bonuses will mean that they will need like 2M in cap space left over.

08 Aug 2019 00:12:28
As much as I like Danault, theyres no way he gets a stud RHD in his prime who has multiple 40 point s season already.

08 Aug 2019 02:58:21
Is it Turris, or is it the team and how they play him? Turris’s atoi is way down compared to what it was when he was in Ottawa. He’s not being used in nearly the same way. Number of face offs is way down, despite being over 50% win. He’s getting less offensive zone starts and power play time. Nashville didn’t use him as much as Ottawa did. And when they did use him, they didn’t use him in a way that would get the most out of him. On top of that, the whole injury thing didn’t help.

08 Aug 2019 15:01:45
Turris got his chance to play on the top 6 and in most of other situations early in the year. He failed to impress and then his ATOI started to fall. If he has any sort of good value, he would have made do with the time of ice he did have, and the only way to get more time on the ice is to score which he failed to do even though he was still on the PP.

Even though he didn't get used as much, he should have scored with the opportunities he was given. His injury has nothing to do with this as he failed to be relevant in the 50+ games he was healthy.

08 Aug 2019 18:43:33
I don’t think Buffalo even needs Gardiner. They have a lot of D signed. Bogo, Dahlin, Collin Miller, McCabe, Scandella, Montour, Hunwick, and Jokiharju and Risto. That’s 9 pretty capable NHL D men. They can trade Riso for F help if I was them. Or picks or something.

14 Aug 2019 14:55:43
Gardiner is usless in his own end .

04 Aug 2019 18:33:31
Buffalo Trades

Nashville Trades

Sabres get there 2nd Line Centre and a Veteran RHanded Shooting Defenceman.
Preds get a Top 6 LWinger, 3rd Line Defensive Centre and a Younger RHanded Shooting Defenceman with upside.

Thoughts ?

27 Jul 2019 21:05:42
Ryan Johansen worth more.

27 Jul 2019 23:03:12
Value wise it’s fair imo.

29 Jul 2019 21:17:21
This ones alright, have monkey saying not enough and tbay saying it's fair and pretty even with agrees and disagrees so this is probably even. Myself think it's ok, johanson the best player but sheary evens it out
enough imo. I still think a small add by buffalo but only a late pick or something .

30 Jul 2019 00:16:54
Man risto stock sure has fallen off a cliff. I remember buff fans saying he was better than several prominent #dmen.

Thoughts ?

21 Jul 2019 18:13:39
think buffalo would have to offer a better package than that.

21 Jul 2019 19:00:57
Turris sucks.

19 Jul 2019 17:21:17
WPG: Little
NSH: Turris

19 Jul 2019 18:19:14
I'd rather keep Little.

19 Jul 2019 02:47:14
MTL: 3rd 2020,Hudon,Weise


MTL take a not so great contract but gets a guy who could be a solid top 6 for MTL. If not then mtl gets a cap dumps and will need to dump him in a couple of years. It's a gamble for both teams imo but Nashville gets 6 million of the cap to do whatever they please with. MTL might get a 50 point center for another 3-4 years at the cost of a 3rd, Hudon and Weise and a not so great contract. Any thoughts?

19 Jul 2019 14:56:08
I think it's crazy to take on Turris contract at this point for free anyway.

17 Jul 2019 22:14:46
Buffalo Trades
Olofsson (AHL)
1st Round Pick 2020 or 2021

Nashville Trades
2nd Round Pick 2020

1st Round Pick 2020 or 2021 is the Sabres choice before the 2020 Draft.

Thoughts ?

17 Jul 2019 21:43:46
Apparently teams around the league wouldn’t take him for free accord Pierre Lebrun he worded it as “ The Sabres are trying to move Ristolainen but there are currently no takers “. So this is a fat no from Nashville.

17 Jul 2019 23:21:50
Buffalos price on Ristolainen is extremely high from what I heard, which is why there are no takers. I’m sure there are teams which would take him if they had a price of what he is not how they used him/ pumped up his numbers with a ton of PP time.

18 Jul 2019 10:08:43
And some teams around the league wouldn't take Nylander a for free, VB. Gimme a break.

18 Jul 2019 10:50:22
Risto is easily worth a first and A prospect.

18 Jul 2019 10:51:03
From Detroit he's worth Larkin, and from MTL he's worth Kotkaniemi. From Toronto he's worth Nylander+Lilijegreen.

18 Jul 2019 11:31:29
wow Mantha you are spare parts bud.

18 Jul 2019 12:32:18
Well the way Pierre worded it makes it seem that way I’d agree a team like Edmonton could use him for there PP but definitely not Toronto I’d do Barrie for Risto and a 1st for Cost control and to add a physical presence but Barrie would need to go.

18 Jul 2019 16:19:18
We get it Mantha from the stars he’s worth Benn and Seguin from the Oilers he’s worth McDavid. From the Rockets he’s worth Harding and Westbrook.

16 Jul 2019 18:05:26
Nashville trades Kyle Turris and a 2nd in 2021.

Buffalo trades Rasmus Ristolainen

Risto can eat some if subbans old minutes, and he will get much better defensively in Nashville. Turris can play 2nd C and let Reinhart play with skinner and Eichel.

The 2nd is because turris has 5 years left, and possible decline sooner than later.

17 Jul 2019 01:47:37
As much as I think Nashville would like to get rid of Turris contract I think they feel that fabbro is nhl ready and capable of eating top 4 minutes so I say Nashville says no, they’re in more need of scoring than more defence.

17 Jul 2019 04:40:52
Turris is a huge gamble for any team right now. I don’t think he brings back a top 4 RHD. He might get a new mouth guard or something. He is $6M overpaid. Maybe Turris for Lucic?

17 Jul 2019 14:05:33
Maybe Turris for Lucic+ Draisalt.

17 Jul 2019 15:00:41
Yeah and Ristolainen adds more scoring. This is an obvious no from Buffalo.

14 Jul 2019 11:53:23
MTL: Armia,Romanov,2rd2019

Nash: Granlund

Nashville gets a big top 9 forward that's brings a lot and for less then 3 million he's considered cheap. Romanov is nhl ready and should be on the third pair as soon as next season for Nashville. MTL gets a good center that can push Domi to the wing

14 Jul 2019 14:06:46
Nashville doesn't touch this lool

14 Jul 2019 17:01:31
Why? Romanov is a A prospect and Armia is a solid player. And the pick is nice too.

11 Jul 2019 00:47:04
Carolina: Gauthier

Nashville: Turris (50% retain)

11 Jul 2019 02:46:51
Why does Nashville do this?

11 Jul 2019 06:51:33
Agree with moneyhands. Turris is still a good 2/ 3 Center IMO.

11 Jul 2019 07:21:19
@SeanMoneyHands @Leafs17
Well, because Kyle Turris scored only 7 goals and 23 points this past season and was also benched multiple times.

Not to mention he’s getting paid 6 million for the next 5 years.

If Kyle Turris bounces back, this could be a huge steal for Carolina, but if he continues to decline this deal sucks for them. They lose a B- prospect too.

11 Jul 2019 11:04:02
I'd say Gauthier is atleast A-. he's still very young and looks like hell be a solid middle 6 nhler.

11 Jul 2019 13:13:32
Mantha this is why prospects values can get out of control on here. A guy that projects as a solid middle 6 player is a B, B- or C+ type prospect. A should be reserved for game breakers and franchise changers. A- should at least mean legit top line potential.

11 Jul 2019 13:31:01
Yah he’s a C+ prospect at best b.

11 Jul 2019 15:03:37
Gauthier isn’t a very good prospect, but neither is Turris a good player. Nashville’s wants to dump Turris ASAP would do this. They traded Subban for less. I doubt they retain salary though.

11 Jul 2019 16:52:15
I misread and thought that was Gauthier from the leafs. I still think Turris is a solid player and will bounce back.

07 Jul 2019 15:16:09
Buffalo Trades
6th Round Pick 2020

Nashville Trades
JDavies (H-East)
3rd Round Pick 2020

Similar type Trade Toronto and Colorado made that fits both Teams needs.

Thoughts ?

07 Jul 2019 16:20:47
Except is giving the 3 worst pieces in the trade besides the 6th.

07 Jul 2019 17:12:56
Risto is the best piece in this deal. Turris might turn things around and be a good player again but I think I would want more to take that chance if he's as bad this year he might start making lucic contract look good ( slight overstatement)

07 Jul 2019 18:01:58
If you look at the underlying stats ristolainen is horrible, maybe playing for buffalo doesn't help but even on a good team don't think he'd be good.

07 Jul 2019 19:25:51
I’d do Barrie for Risto in a heartbeat.

07 Jul 2019 19:25:55
On a good team as a 2nd pair dman he'd be just fine he's not a number 1 which is what was expected from him in buffalo.

07 Jul 2019 22:42:19
He's a really good defensemen imo, he's not that far off Seth Jones.

08 Jul 2019 01:09:34
LOL not far off Seth Jones he's like minus 144 in his career.

08 Jul 2019 01:13:40
He's nowhere close to Seth Jones but he is around Jeff petry and jake muzzin level.

08 Jul 2019 01:52:14
Habby I kind of disagree but agree at the same time He’s near Elite on the PP and elite physically. He’s one of the most aggressive players in the game. His play in his own end on the other hand is below average and that’s being nice. He’d be good paired with a safe Dman like Vlasic, Slavin or Suter. He’s proven he can log 30 min a night on some nights but should be played a role around the 21 minute mark.

08 Jul 2019 03:07:55
you should talk to some buffalo fans re: their thoughts on risto. paints a pretty clear picture.

08 Jul 2019 04:03:46
But again vbb he looks that bad cause he is used on the top pair and he should be on the 2nd pair.

08 Jul 2019 12:57:39
Yah you’re right.

08 Jul 2019 14:11:31
Risto is def a first pair defensemen in the likes of Drew Doughty, Seth Jones ect.

08 Jul 2019 15:38:59
You have never watched hockey in your life if you believe that.

08 Jul 2019 15:57:27
I had no idea Risto was that physical. I’m going to have to pay more attention to him.

08 Jul 2019 16:38:45
He is an extremely physical dman sometimes it gets him in a little trouble defensively but I'd like to see him play in a playoff series I think a lot of people who don't like him would Change their view.

08 Jul 2019 17:19:42
He can hammer boys at Will he looks for the hit which isn’t good for a dman.

08 Jul 2019 17:52:51
Risto is extremely poor defensively. I don’t think Nashville would consider taking him on when they already have Ellis and Fabbri. And I don’t see how Turris is a fit in Buffalo either.

06 Jul 2019 09:28:36
William Nylander

Sam Bennett
T.J Brodie
Second Round Draft Pick

Kyle Turris

Michael Frolik
First Round Draft Pick

Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm

Matthew Tkachuk - Kyle Turris - William Nylander

Mark Jankowski - Mikael Backlund - Matthew Phillips

Andrew Mangiapane - Derek Ryan - James Neal

Mark Giordano - Rasmus Andersson

Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic

Juuso Valimaki - Oliver Kylington

06 Jul 2019 17:14:30
I’d love the 1st trade and I think it’s fair. The leafs need a player like Bennett and Nylander would fit in Calgary’s top 6.

06 Jul 2019 20:58:50
I don’t think Nylander has that kind of value. With his contract I wouldn’t even do him straight up for Brodie.

07 Jul 2019 02:41:51
Nylander is going to return to his old form this year. I want Calgary to get him while his value is low and his contract looks bad. Because next year i see him hitting 70pts easily with all the upgrades dubas has made.

07 Jul 2019 13:17:42
With all the upgrades Dubas has made, Nylander is will be playing elsewhere next year.

07 Jul 2019 17:17:32
They upgraded the defence that shouldn't affect nylander.

07 Jul 2019 17:43:03
Yes but now they have no money to keep Nylander and sign Marner. Unless they don't match and offer sheet for Marner.

07 Jul 2019 21:21:09
Who is giving up a 1st let alone a 1st+ for Turris?

08 Jul 2019 18:00:45
Both these trades favor Calgary. The second one in particular heavily favors the Flames.

05 Jul 2019 19:58:56
Aperently MTL is talking to Nashville about Granlund. Atm it looks like something around first rd pick 2020 and Josh Brooks and Charles Hudon. Thoughts?

05 Jul 2019 21:32:44
Don’t they need that pick for Aho 😂.

06 Jul 2019 04:09:41
seems like way more than they need to pay.

07 Jul 2019 00:01:18
Granlund would be a nice little pickup.

07 Jul 2019 02:28:05
Pavelec, that's interesting that you think it's an overpayment, what peace would u take out from Montreal? I'm genuinely asking, and Thanx for your thoughts on the trade guys!

05 Jul 2019 12:42:29
Since Nashville has too many centers now with Turris, Duchene, Johansen, Granlund, Bonino. Could you see them do any of these trades?

To NSH - TJ Brodie & 2nd
To CGY - Kyle Turris


To NSH - Michael Frolik, Rasmus Andersson & 1st
To CGY - Kyle Turris

05 Jul 2019 12:57:50
Seems like a lot for Turris at this point no?

05 Jul 2019 12:54:28
Honestly, I wouldn’t trade Rasmus Andersson for anyone on the predators roster besides Josi and Forsburg let alone a negative value contract in Turris. Rasmus Andersson is 22 year old top 4 dman that’s fast on track to develop into a top pairing dman.

05 Jul 2019 13:58:22
I like your response vbb but i really like Turris

05 Jul 2019 14:25:44
Turris has a terrible year Nashville would be lucky for a team to take him for free.

05 Jul 2019 16:52:56
Even with max retention on turns I wouldn't make either of these deals from a flames pov.

05 Jul 2019 18:37:12
Nylander had a terrible year, would be lucky if a team takes him for free.

05 Jul 2019 20:18:08
Difference between him and Turris is Turris is like 29 and Nylander is 22 he missed training camp and had a rough start Babcock was an absolute idiot and swung him around the 3rd-4th lines. Like I said if stuck beside a healthy Mathews he’s a 90 point player.

05 Jul 2019 21:39:23
vbb i would gladly take the under on Nylander scoring 90 points this year if you want to make that bet.

05 Jul 2019 22:09:45
Damn thanks for your guys' responses. I thought it would be the other way around haha

05 Jul 2019 23:00:04
You know that like 8/ 12 flames forwards are centers right? But ya, either one is to much for Turris.

29 Jun 2019 08:20:32
Nashville Kassian, Starret
Edmonton Saros

30 Jun 2019 07:56:16
Not even close for Saros. Also, NSH is not trading Saros, he's their future #1.

22 Jun 2019 17:44:00

New Jersey: P. K Subban

Nashville: Santini, Davies, 2x 2nd Round Pick.

22 Jun 2019 18:05:44
Woah! New Jersey going big. Didn’t believe this when I saw it until it showed up on TV! Wow!

22 Jun 2019 18:43:35
Instant help but in 3 years another team in cap hell.

22 Jun 2019 19:08:12
@islandjet possibly but it won't be because of subban he will be gone by then.

22 Jun 2019 19:22:35
3rd line wingers will be getting payed 7 million in 3 years.

Top players will be getting 15 million +

In 20 years top players will be getting 30 million+.

22 Jun 2019 19:57:19
Didn’t the cap go down this season? Or at least didn’t go up.

22 Jun 2019 20:50:18
They got to do the cba soon so contracts will level out. Wont see a bigger contract than McDavid for a while.

22 Jun 2019 21:42:11
It’s projected to go up 2 million but 3 million lower then originally anticipated.

17 Jun 2019 21:08:36
Pittsburgh Penguins:

•) Evgeny Malkin

•) 3rd/ 4th Round Pick 2019

Nashville Predators:

•) PK Subban

•) Kyle Turris.

18 Jun 2019 05:15:28
Huge no from Pittsburgh.

12 Jun 2019 17:19:52

- Craig Smith - decent middle forward and preds need to move some cap back
- 24th overall pick
- Fabbro

Thoughts ?

11 Jun 2019 04:59:00
3 way deal

to Toronto
Nashville's 2nd

to Nashville

to New Jersey

Nashville isn't giving up as much so it doesn't get as much back.

11 Jun 2019 10:47:34
Loool none of them are worth marner

11 Jun 2019 12:13:17
Leafs say no. The only defenceman the leafs would trade Marner for is Jones, and a trade like that is highly unlikely.

11 Jun 2019 12:53:29
Agree with most leaf but I’d trade Marner for Dahlin so quick that it’s not even funny. I’ll take Dahlin over McDavid actually.

11 Jun 2019 13:52:02
The problem is Buffalo would never trade Dahlin.

11 Jun 2019 15:53:38
But you said the only dman the leafs would trade Marner for and i added Dahlin. If I were to build a team I actually would probably start with McDavid but number 2 would be Dahlin.

11 Jun 2019 16:30:32
VB. why in would you take Dahlin over McDavid?

11 Jun 2019 19:01:57
Well I took that back but I’d take Dahlin on the leafs for Pure need. If i'm starting a Franchise I’d take McDavid. I think Dahlin will be a PPG dman and a good defensive player. A more offensive Nicklas Lindstrom.

05 Jun 2019 00:10:27
Saw this as a base, Curious who would add and what would need to be added?

Nashville Trades: Turris +?

Detroit Trades: Nielsen+?

Nashville saves long term cap and gets a player who can easily be shifted into a 3C if someone better shows up. Also could be an alternative if they miss on Duchene and want to shake up a bit.

Detroit gets the younger player that had chemistry with Mantha during IIHF to help build a steady presence during transition.
