Flames Trade: Johnny Gaudreau, Garnet Hathaway
Avalanche Trade: Nathan MacKinnon.

Agree1 Disagree7

13 May 2019 10:12:45
That's not close. McKinnon is way better than gaudreau so more from Calgary easy. But why Colorado does that in the first place?

13 May 2019 13:39:39
Not even close for Mackinnon.

14 May 2019 01:15:01
why would the avalanche ever do this.

12 May 2019 19:05:20
Edmonton Oilers Acquire:
Mathieu Perreault [4.125 Million x 2 Years]
Dmitry Kulikov [4.3 Million x 1 Year]

Winnipeg Jets Acquire:
Kris Russell [4.0 Million x 2 Years]
Sam Gagner [3.1 Million x 1 Year]

Edmonton acquires the best player in the deal [Perreault], while taking on appx. 1 Million more in salary.

Winnipeg frees up 1 Million in salary and acquires a stop-gap blueliner in Russell, considering they'll lose Myers, Chiarot, Beau and potentially Trouba.

Essentially, a change of scenery for all four players involved.

Agree4 Disagree12

12 May 2019 20:13:12
I don’t think this trade makes the Oilers better and I think if they trade these two players they need to save cap.

12 May 2019 20:22:23
This trade doesn't help the Jets at all as Russell and Gagner would not make the Jets better. I can see Perreault being part of a bigger trade to get the Jets a player they really need.

12 May 2019 23:01:23
No thanks from Winnipeg. The Jets can't afford to take on two cap dumps.

13 May 2019 00:27:29
What's this kings ransom perrault going to get? hasn't Winnipeg been trying to trade him for while?

13 May 2019 01:53:10
@Ebs, I think Perreault is decent enough to hold his own along McDavid, he's gotten 40 before, could be decent. At worst, its a lateral move tbh, but I can see why Kulikov for Gagner is an issue,

And @IJ, I doubt Perreault goes for anything close to market value. he's in the same cap tier as Russell tbh.

13 May 2019 02:52:25
Kinda seems like a sideways move for both teams. can't see it making either team better. And sure Edmonton would like to shed salary same as Winnipeg.

13 May 2019 03:06:32
Perrault is good player, yes. He is best player in trade, yes. So that is reason Jets do not make this trade. I do not think they need to save $1M so bad to make this trade.

13 May 2019 03:21:12
Brodie has sometimes been very good and sometimes very bad. If he's always on his game he's very good but isnt. But toffoli has had a rough go of it for a while.

13 May 2019 05:45:59
I’d guess Perreault might have a little more value than Russell and Gagner has more value than Kulikov. I agree it’s pretty neutral and I think the Oil can move Russell and save much needed cap. I don’t think Jets would do it either.

14 May 2019 05:59:33
Gagne would be in the Ahl in Winnipeg, while kulikov would be a 5-6 D on edm. Why not just swap those 2? Save Winnipeg 1mil and edm gets a defender.

14 May 2019 06:34:51
Because the Oilers don’t need a 4M 6-7th D. Lol they already have two over paid bottom pair D.

12 May 2019 16:06:43
LAK : Tyler Toffoli
CGY : 26th Overall Selection & T.J Brodie

Calgary Top 6

Gaudreau - Monahan - Lindholm
Tkachuk - Backlund - Toffoli

Agree1 Disagree11

12 May 2019 17:48:18
Bodie for Toffoli straight up is probably fair.

12 May 2019 17:52:31
I agree that flames shouldn’t be adding a 1st round but idk if straight up is fair. Might need some pieces from both teams but that’s really interesting post.

12 May 2019 20:11:49
Calgary must not make this trade. Is so very bad. Calgary defense is so very worse without Brodie, yes? And Toffoli is not improve for the top 6 forwards. Only third line would get better and defense much worse and they lose first round pick. Is so very bad trade.

13 May 2019 02:58:11
Think is close straight up. Brodie plays the more important position. Plus last 3 seasons Brodie has like 10 less points than toffoli playing defenceman. Maybe la does the add.

13 May 2019 03:14:41
No zamboni, it's not, even with out Brodie they have gio-hanifin. Hamonic- valimaki, stone-Anderson, then fatemberg and a couple others that would easy be fine for 7ths. Still a strong defense. They trading one of there defense this year for something cause valimaki and Rasmussen ready for full time so either stone or Brodie gone. At least that's what they keep saying on fan 960 in Calgary.

12 May 2019 15:59:21
Instead of moving Malkin

PIT : Phil Kessel
ARI : Jason Demers (25% Retained Salary), Alex Galchenyuk & 1st

Agree4 Disagree12

12 May 2019 20:13:22
But Kessel would never take trade to Arizona. No. I’m afraid Kessel will only take trades to win more cups.

13 May 2019 01:55:12
Kessel will go anywhere that sells hotdogs on every street corner.

12 May 2019 13:24:04
Winnipeg: Trouba, Perreault

Detroit: Dekeyser, 2nd in 2020 (becomes 1st I'm 2020 if Trouba resigns)

Agree2 Disagree18

12 May 2019 14:50:33
Not enough from Detroit.

12 May 2019 15:04:53
What would you add? Make it Dekeyser and the 2019 1st? Jets get a solid centre in the draft?

12 May 2019 16:41:57
Why would the Jets trade Trouba and Perreault for an average, bottom pairing 30 year old d-man in Dekeyser? Even adding a 1st at #6 is not enough. The Jets won't give Trouba and Perreault away and will want a solid young player in return as they are in a win now situation. The pick won't be ready for 2/ 3 years as the Jets overripe their prospects and Maurice hates playing young players.

12 May 2019 16:52:28
No thanks from Winnipeg. Zero interest in DeKeyser. You need to start with a younger, better piece than DeKeyser.

12 May 2019 17:50:03
#6 is an overpayment for Trouba.

12 May 2019 17:53:55
Nice troll post.

12 May 2019 20:33:09
Oh no. This will never do. Trouba is so good as the great Morgan Rielly. I look at the stats and they show us. Trouba is maybe one year behind. He will get 70 points next year is very good, yes. And he hits more. The Trouba is so very much good than Dekeyser. Oh yes. This must be joke trade.

12 May 2019 11:59:52
I'm wondering what the cost would be to obtain Mitch Marner from TO

He would be a major upgrade to the top 6 but wonder what's on the shelf that could make it happen and what holes would need to be filled by making this this type of trade?

I'm wondering if maybe
Välimäki Bennett and Backlund would be enough or is it to much?

Agree1 Disagree12

12 May 2019 13:36:56
Not even close. He’s more valuable then any asset on Calgary even Guadreau. He’s the heart and soul of the leafs you’d have better luck going after Mathews or Tavares. Or you could go the offer sheet route and offer him over 13 mil and the leafs wouldn’t match. They’d take the 4 1st round picks and sign Karlsson. Leafs have a lot of cap space this summer and they can match anything if they let Kappanen, Johnsson, Gardiner And Hanisey walk.

12 May 2019 15:54:31
Toronto would never but imo it would be probably Tkachuk & 1st

12 May 2019 17:51:46
That’s like Guadreau for Nylander ( before the hold out on his ELC ) And 1st.

Now Tkachuk>>Nylander tho.

12 May 2019 20:36:52
Marner is one of the best in the nhl. To trade for him Calgary must give up so very much. I do not think Tkachuk + 1st is enough. Calgary must needs to give more still. Maybe even the great Giordano.

12 May 2019 21:46:44
Let Kapanen walk, are you nuts?

13 May 2019 13:43:03
Well qualify him then trade his right leafs can technically afford to sign Marner to a 20 million dollar contract ( Max contract is 15 ) but it’d just ruin there team.

13 May 2019 14:32:50
@vbbb still not looking at cap friendly I see.

13 May 2019 20:24:24
Yes I have go calculate next years cap on the leafs without signing any players and Horton on LTIR they have over 20mil in cap.

14 May 2019 15:51:16
First off calculate again and then keep in mind also that they still have to sign or promote 5 more players after marner and I'm pretty sure they don't intend on playing just for fun.

15 May 2019 04:14:15
Doubtful anything can get Marner. The 4 first round picks comp the team gets that has his rights when he gets rfa'd July 1 are pretty valuable. Especially for a team capped out like the Leafs that needs dmen and cheap supporting cast.

12 May 2019 01:25:40
Maple Leafs Trade:
Connor Brown (RW: 2.1 Million x 1 Year)
2020 4th Round Pick

Blues Trade:
Robby Fabbri (LW: RFA)

Fabbri hasn't had a good season or playoff this year, but has some solid potential. Brown is better right now, and potentially could stay that way, especially with Fabbris injury history, but its a worthwhile gamble for Toronto, especially since they need cap space. St. Louis gets a guy who could potentially replace Blais/ Steen/ Maroon next year as needed.

Agree5 Disagree13

12 May 2019 07:32:29
Toronto must not make this trade, no. Fabbro has a broken body, he cannot play good hockey no more. Brown is worth so very much more than Fabbri. I think is bad trade.

12 May 2019 13:38:01
I’d do this from the leafs POV allows them to move Kappanen or Johnsson.

12 May 2019 16:24:00
I would rather have a working Kia than a broken Ferrari.

12 May 2019 17:54:40
Park the Ferrari in front of the house and makes a statement. It also has potential to get fixed.

13 May 2019 01:03:02
hahahaha good one!

13 May 2019 04:05:07
Yeah blues say no fabbri is making leaps Nd bound for missing two years. At 1 mil much needed player for blues his speed kills. We have players like brown.

11 May 2019 18:46:28
Ottawa- edm 8th overall pick, Milan Lucic

Edm- 19th pick

Edmonton is desperately trying to get rid of Lucics contract and Ottawa's trying to get to the cap floor trade works for both teams

Agree14 Disagree9

11 May 2019 19:44:57
any retention?

11 May 2019 19:45:53
if not, I don't see why ottawa would bother.

11 May 2019 20:46:11
they would bother because they get a top 10 draft pick to replace the one they lost for nothing (since duchene got traded again) and they need salary to hit the cap floor as the guy stated. that's why they would bother.

11 May 2019 21:33:42
im not necessarily saying ottawa would make this trade, just saying why they would bother.

11 May 2019 22:13:14
taking on the worst contract in nhl history to move up a few in the draft doesn't seem like a smart move, there's ways to hit the floor without hurting your roster so significantly.

11 May 2019 22:24:01
Do it in a heart beat!

11 May 2019 23:08:45
I think add some middling player (that isn’t a cap dump) like Khaira, Benning or some prospect to sweeten. Cause I mean dropping from 8 to 19 may not be enough for 6x4.

12 May 2019 00:27:55
Or they could just sign a free agent, yes? % chance 19th works out is about the same as 10th. Ottawa should not take on bad contract. Very wrong way to start a rebuild. Is not good trade for Ottawa.

12 May 2019 00:31:19
If it’s the 8th overall pick, Edmonton should not be retaining.

12 May 2019 00:39:36
Solid base Edmonton probably adds a decent prospect like Puljujarvi or Bear.

12 May 2019 00:51:03
No from ottawa. Lucic is worth barely worth 1 mil a year. 5 mil a year overpayment for 4 years. Everyone knows 8th OVA = how bad lucic contract is.

Fair offer

8OVA, Lucic.

Ahl player.

Oh and btw @NotDelusional2 just because they need to hit the cap floor doesn't mean they will just go take a dump to do someone a favour lol for anyone using that argument and yes you are delusional.

12 May 2019 03:46:45
I don’t get it guys. Ottawa isn’t using the money for 4 years anyway. Lucic can take a 4th line role therefore not really taking a spot from anyone significant. The negatives of Lucic don’t really affect them that much, I understand he’s far from a valuable asset but Ottawa should be looking to make moves like this.

12 May 2019 14:32:09
Why do people keep saying that lucic is the worst contract in nhl?

Would rather have lucic than Eriksson, neal and kesler.

13 May 2019 01:12:09
don't forget seabrook.

15 May 2019 04:05:17
That is actually a good trade for each team. Ottawa is in rebuild mode and fans could have Looch's bone crushing hits to have something to cheer for. There is a good player available at 8th pick. Edm loses that 8th pick which is needed but gain some cap flexibility.

11 May 2019 18:17:57
Van- Tanev,juolevi 2019 10th
Chi- Seabrook 2019 3rd

Agree1 Disagree17

11 May 2019 19:46:38
huge no from vancouver.

11 May 2019 20:37:38
Yeah, that’s a fat no from Vancouver.

11 May 2019 23:10:32
The difference between 10&3 is not as big as 10&2 just because of after Kakko and Hughes, the talent drops. Taking Seabrook is probably all it takes to jump those seven spots. Juolevi and Tanev too? Hard pass from Vancouver.

12 May 2019 00:29:42
I don't think Chicago will ever move Seabrook. If his contract was 2 million less for 2 less seasons, then he may bring experience to some teams. One of the hardest contracts to move in the NHL plus he has no interest in moving.

12 May 2019 00:31:46
Seasbrook has bad contract, yes. Very bad. And NMC too. I don’t think he will waive to go to Vancouver. Chicago is start rebuild must needs that 3rd overall, yes. And why is Vancouver want Seabrook? Very bad way to keep on for the rebuild by take on bad contract. Is not a good trade for both teams, no.

11 May 2019 22:20:36
Seabrook has negative value.

Imo 10th + Juolevi OR Tanev is close to enough to move from 10th to 3rd alone. Since 2-10 is pretty much a toss-up. No idea why they would give up more to take Seabrook and his terrible contract.

11 May 2019 04:58:39
Pens: Maata, Jack Johnson, 21st overall pick.

Vancouver: Jay Beagle, 2019 2nd.

Pens get rid of one BAD contract (JJ) and one guy who seems to be the odd man out lately but a couple of years ago was a decent defender. Beagle is more for cap.

Agree3 Disagree13

11 May 2019 11:59:52
Okay, so to "get rid of one bad contract" that has 4 years at 3.25m left, the Penguins give up Maatta and a first rounder, just to get back a bad contract that has 3 years left at 3m? Makes a ton of sense lol.

11 May 2019 14:24:50
I thought Johnsson was 4.25.

11 May 2019 15:27:08
It’s 3.25mil/ season.

12 May 2019 00:34:27
Oh no. This will never do. Pittsburgh must not trade two defense. But who will play defense for them after? Is Leta g so good to play all defense himself?
