What would be the asking price for Malkin? Pittsburgh needs defence but also cap space and Arizona needs a legit number one center.

Would this package get it done?

ARI : D Jakob Chychrun, C Nate Schnarr, D Pierre Oliver-Joseph & 14th Overall Selection

PIT : C Evgeni Malkin & D Olli Maatta

Agree5 Disagree3

19 May 2019 14:36:31
Value wise not bad but Arizona feels like a place Malkin wouldn’t waive to.

to Vancouver

to Pittsburgh
2nd 2019
4th 2019

Pittsburgh is becoming increasingly depleted and could use some assets. I don't think this trade happens if Malkin is still in his prime but he's starting to slow down and Vancouver really wouldn't know which version of him they'd be getting. If he's washed this is a steal for pittsburgh, but if he's still got a lot in the tank this would lift Vancouver way up as far as the Pacific Division is concerned.

Agree0 Disagree11

19 May 2019 06:32:27
I’m sure Pittsburg will want more, and Vancouver won’t want to pay more.

19 May 2019 20:21:09
Worst Malkin proposal ever. A Defenceman heading towards bust, a bust winger who is 22 and his best season was what 25 points? and 2nd and 3rd lol.

20 May 2019 22:19:27
Better players and higher picks need to go back to PIttsburgh.

Boeser instead of Virtanen, Agree Joelevi's a bust and puts a detriment to the deal, and perhaps upping the picks to some 1sts are more realistic.

19 May 2019 02:26:16
to Buffalo
Zajac (50% retained)

to NJ

Buffalo is running out of seasons in which they can be bad. Zajac is a good-not-great center with a big contract, but at ~2.8 that's all of a sudden a good value player. If there were more years left on his contract the Devils could probably fetch a bigger prospect but this will likely be the best they can get for him.

Agree3 Disagree2

19 May 2019 15:49:30
Value you wise good deal.

19 May 2019 00:38:04
IMO from what I've been reading on this Mika Zibanajad is one of the most underrated figures in sports history he is a franchise player and a 1 man show similar to McDavid by carrying a terrible team on his back ( Rangers are much worse then Edmonton) Zibanajad is a 90 point player in the right situation with real line mates. Why I believe the Rangers should trade him?This is because he's 26 and by the time the rangers are good he'll be leaving his Prime. Anyway that's my rant this is my proposal.

Philly: Nolan Patrick

New York: Mika Zibanajad

Rangers - Nolan Patrick is posed to become a 2 way 1C ( hopefully a sad-mans Towes ). While Zibanajad is the much better player and Patrick May never be as good but he'll be entering his prime when Rangers are starting to compete.

Philly: Philly is starting to compete now. They have a very solid roster and Zibanajad/Coutorier as 1/2 Cs would be huge. Zibanajad would be Great between Vorchek and JVR.

Agree2 Disagree7

19 May 2019 07:33:42
Rumour forgetting 1 important detail and that is not every team takes 10 years to do a rebuild. The Rangers can and will spend to the cap and depending on who they add and which of their prospects step into the line up this year they could easily be a playoff team next season.

19 May 2019 07:41:31
Your love for zibanajad is on the same scale as your hate for lucic lol in the sense where neither is as good or bad as you say.

19 May 2019 14:42:37
I disagree habby just look at what he produced this year compared to the rest of the team. Zib really stands out on the Rangers. Also I’m not sayings he’s even comparable to McDavid talent wise I’m saying the way he carry’s the team is similar. Also what you’re saying may be true about the rebuild to some extent but I hope we can both agree there should definitely be atleast a two year window of being a bottom 5 team Lundqvist and Staal need to go. Also they need one or two more elite pieces like Kakko/ Hughes.

19 May 2019 15:37:46
He's been a 40 or 50 point guy all his career and hit 70 last year sounds a lot like max Domi to me.

19 May 2019 15:49:57
Well VB if we are judging off of one year then fine. But in his career he’s been a good player but a franchise centre that’s funny. He has never been a point per game player in the NHL he just had a career year with 74 in 82. ( just to put in perspective Domi had 72 in 82). And this was the first year in his career he played all 82 games. He’s a good top line center but franchise is pushing your luck.

19 May 2019 17:26:09
I’m judging this as a break out year yes also Domi was playing with more talent Montreal is a better team. I don’t think Zib is as good as players like Tavares, Stamkos, Giroux, Hall, Schifele, Malkin, Mathews among others but he’s a tier below imo

He’s in the Same tier as
Benn, Monahan, Paniran, Larkin, Forsburg, Kuznetzkov

If you don’t watch the rangers a lot you may not agree but a few more 70+ point seasons will make this more commonly known.

19 May 2019 20:20:51
Zibanejad is worth a lot more than Patrick right now.
And the Rangers could be good very fast. Sign Panarin and/ or Karlsson, get Kaako/ Hughes in the draft. And they were already somewhat decent last year. Additional player development from their young guys. And they have a ton of picks. Rangers did it right, great rebuild.
This trade would be very bad for them.

22 May 2019 06:22:12
It's difficult sometimes to read things from fans that make it impossible to avoid being a little antagonistic and insulting. So I apologize. But you're lost. This is the type of perfect example of a fan that isn't aware of recent history, or what a good player is or how prospects develop etc. That's why when the GM says "rebuild" people get so confused that they don't realize the rebuild is over. They will develop young players. But the Rangers after winning the 2nd pick and trading for Fox now need to add a TOP top FA (Panarin is the only option for many reasons. But he's perfect) Has the OP planned out the depth chart and tried to figure out where the team is now. In one offseason before you even hopefully add Panarin, and hopefully trade for a legit defenseman, the team is bringing in Kakko, Kravstov, Fox, Rykov, Shestyorkin. Plus the college fas they signed. That's it. Rebuild is done. Growth is constant but they have the roster filled with every guy we want to go forward with aside from Miller and we will see who else. And the first line center was the best player and is a legit candidate for a point a game with 2 wings who can get him there. No to this. no to kreider. These are GOOD players. PRIME is not 27 to 29. It's 24-31.

to LA

to Colorado
Martinez (1M retained)

Agree1 Disagree6

19 May 2019 00:32:23
But why would Colorado do this? I do not think they need right defenseman. They have oh so many already. And Bowers is very good prospect. Avalanche are still rebuilding themselves, yes? They need secondary scoring, not another defenseman. I do not think Colorado will make this trade.

19 May 2019 09:44:51
zamboni, martinez is LHD.

18 May 2019 20:06:09
to Toronto
Spurgeon (1.5M retained)

to Minnesota
1st 2020

Minnesota is in cap hell and also are not very good, nor do they have a very deep prospect pool so although spurgeon is on a reasonable contract it might be worth it to use him to bring in some good assets. Zaitsev is not very good but Toronto losing his contract is something the Leafs very much want so they would likely pay a lot to do it. Honestly I think the leafs might have to add even more to make it work but Liljegren is very good and could transform the team. I think retained salary is another way to make it worthwhile for Toronto.

Agree0 Disagree10

18 May 2019 20:19:06
Leafs 100% take this if I were their GM. Liljgren might have more value then spurgen to Dubas but idk.

18 May 2019 20:37:53
Spurgeon is not what that much. Take out the 1st round pick and maybe a 6th round.

18 May 2019 20:45:26
Spurgeon is good. And even if you think he isn’t worth that, minny retaining 1.5 mill AND taking on Zaitsev probably makes up the difference. It’s mentioned that Minny doesn’t have cap space which makes it harder for me to make sense of this because they don’t have the space to retain and absorb a bad contract.

19 May 2019 00:37:49
I do not think Toronto would make this trade. It is not such a very good trade for them to lose so much players for only one year of Spurgeon. Is Spurgeon so much better than Muzzin? I do not think so.

18 May 2019 17:59:15
jets trade: Jacob Trouba and 2020 3rd round pick to Anaheim for: Cam Fowler and 2019 5th round pick.

Agree3 Disagree10

18 May 2019 21:29:24
Not much chance Chevy does this trade.

19 May 2019 00:44:11
Oh no. This would never do. I do believe Trouba is so very much better than Mr. Cam Fowler. And they must include the better pick too? But why would Winnipeg make this trade?

19 May 2019 02:30:21
No thanks from Winnipeg.

19 May 2019 20:13:02
good for jets but may need them to take on kulikovs contract as the ducks have a lot of cap space.

18 May 2019 17:38:18
WPG: Ehlers, 2nd Round Pick 2019
EDM: Puljujärvi, 8th Overall 2019

Jets shed some salary, get a player that has had success with Laine and also move up in the draft.

Oilers get a speedy top 6 LW to play with McDavid. He's signed long term at a very reasonable cap hit.

Agree4 Disagree10

18 May 2019 18:46:24
Would not even trade the first round pick for ehlers.

18 May 2019 19:53:26
I don't think the jets are trying to get rid of their good contracts-- those are the ones they probably would like to hold on to the most.

18 May 2019 21:16:01
Take out the 1st round pick from EDM and replace it with a 2nd round pick a conditional 3rd round (* becomes a 2nd in 2020 if Ehlers scores at least 45 pts) and take out the 2nd round pick from Winnipeg and it's much closer. Stop overestimating your players' worth.

18 May 2019 21:26:39
Zero chance of Chevy making this trade.

19 May 2019 02:34:07
Nope. This trade sets the Jets back 3 or 4 years while we wait and hope that the pick or Puljujarvi turn out as good as Ehlers is now. The Oilers would take the trade in an instant though.

19 May 2019 20:18:19
no thanks man, don't got the cap for that.

18 May 2019 17:35:50
WPG: Perrault, Comrie
CGY: Bennett

Agree3 Disagree8

18 May 2019 18:07:44
Big no from Calgary he is the hardest working player and the only player that showed up consistently for the flames in Playoffs.

18 May 2019 21:31:52
The Jets would jump at this deal but I don't believe that the Flames would.

19 May 2019 00:48:58
Bennett is good player, yes. And much younger than Perrault, who is also good player. But Bennett is cheaper and still has upside. Perrault we know his best. I do not think is good trade for Calgary.

19 May 2019 02:34:52
What is the incentive for Calgary to make this trade?

19 May 2019 05:19:14
No from Calgary, not bad though

19 May 2019 20:19:22
makes 0 sense for flames.

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)

Agree0 Disagree9

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.
