Tor sparks. Linjgren 2 3 rd picks

Stl Pietrangelo

Tor nylander

Boston DeBrusk

Agree1 Disagree14

01 Nov 2018 10:41:39
Even if he's older then the two other wingers, Pietrangelo is a number 1 RHD on a good contract. Even if Derbrusk and Nylander where on the same team I'm pretty sure St Louis wouldn't trade Pietro for those two combine.

01 Nov 2018 12:25:31
STL laughs.

01 Nov 2018 13:22:34
Leafs laugh. Liljegren is going to be on our 1RHD for the next decade. He will be a lot cheaper than Pietrangelo, who we absoluteky cannot afford to re-sign after next year.

10 years Liljegren >>> 2 years Pietrangelo.

Trading Liljegren for two years of Pietrangelo is poor asset management. Simple as that.

01 Nov 2018 13:38:06
No from STL.

01 Nov 2018 13:58:19
That's pretty high hopes for the guy. Didn't realize he was projected like that.
Guess we just wait and see now if he's your #1 RHD for the next ten years.
And I'm a fan of Timothy's, thought he was a good pick
Up for the Leafs.

01 Nov 2018 15:42:42
Wow didn't realize that Liljgren is a stud. Good luck with that, Also STL laughs you in the face.

01 Nov 2018 15:56:48
Brutal for St. Louis. First of all they aren’t getting the value. Secondly they just signed bozak, traded futures and decent current roster players for O’Reilly. They made those moves to compete now. Even for a better package, trading their best dman and arguable best player (with Tarasenko) makes zero sense.

01 Nov 2018 15:57:00
Side note: if dubas could make that trade with St. Louis, he would be an instant legend and I would say leafs are then cup favourites. Adding a RH Norris caliber Dman without losing a piece from your roster besides a back up goalie would do that. It will also never happen lol.

01 Nov 2018 16:12:44
@yupp and @redwing

NHL. com has him ranked 39th overall and among top 5 RHD

Sportingnews has him ranked 41st overall and 7th RHD prospect overall.

Lastwordonhockey has him ranked 26th overall and 5th RHD overall

I think that qualifies him as one of the highest ranked prospects in the world.

Trading 10+ years of our future 1RHD away for a 2 year rental of Pietrangelo, who we definitely cannot afford to re-sign is extremely poor asset management.

01 Nov 2018 16:46:16
The following players were ranked extremely high by writters and analyst and never amounted to be a top 30 player in thier position Also Schmaltz, Dunn, Parayko have outperformed him in AHL. I doubt he ever becomes better than parayko let alone top 5 defenseman in the league.

Tyler Meyers
Nail Yakapov
Darnell Nurse
dion Phaneuf
Magnus Paravvii (i know i spelt it wrong)

There are tons more, i just don't care to do the research. But all these players i mentioned were suppose to be the next great player and sadly only ekblad has hit top pair status but has never hit his ceiling.

01 Nov 2018 16:53:58
HELL NO from T. O.

01 Nov 2018 17:03:25
Lol maple leaf fans are like Liljegren is the next bobby or trade him for mcdavid and put mcdavid on rhd lmao.

01 Nov 2018 17:19:31

I don’t believe I ever said he was going to be better than Parayko or top 5 in the league. You are putting words into my mouth. What I said was he is going to be our 1RHD and will be on the team a lot longer, and cost a lot less, than Pietrangelo. He is one of the youngest players in AHL, and is performing extremely well. There is absolutely no way Leafs would make this deal. Absolutely twrrible asset management.

01 Nov 2018 18:34:39
Terrible assets management? Are you kidding me😂

You’re literally giving up a guy who isn’t even playing on your team for a legit #1 defenseman.

01 Nov 2018 19:08:40
Crazy. What's wrong with Ekblad, Meyers, Nurse, Dion?
They seem to have turned out alright and some still haven't reached their potential.
I think the over hype on Timothy is crazy here. Again, I'm a fan of the guy and have him projected as hopefully becoming a solid top 4 guy for you, in a year or two still, but no means a #1 elite stud like you're making it out. He was 17th overall. Lots of guys drafted better than 17 haven't even turned out to be an elite D man.
I guess we will wait and see if Timothy turns out to be that stud you think. Would be great for the team tho.

01 Nov 2018 23:35:25
I'm just saying everyone thought they were the next top 5 Dman. They were over hyped. this seems to be more of the same.

But this never happens because the blues say hells to the no.

02 Nov 2018 01:49:25
Lol classic Colt.

02 Nov 2018 12:13:20
@yupp, what’s wrong with Ekblad? His names not Colton parayko!

02 Nov 2018 13:33:17
I’ve watched lots of liljegren with the Marlies. I think he has a chance to be a good top 4 Dman. I think elite is a stretch for sure and there’s still a decent chance he never makes a big impact at all. He’s such a curious prospect. Went from possible top 5 pick, to falling off the radar, to a mid first and then played top 4 min all season as the youngest player in the AHL, but then was very sheltered and hardly played in the Calder cup finals. Any close game he barley touched the ice in the 3rd period. Still was only 19 and that’s expected in a Dman, but I don’t have a solid read on this guy at all.

02 Nov 2018 15:16:27
Ekblad minus injuries just hasn't been that elite top norris dman that everyone hyped him to be. There is nothing wrong with him at all. I am just trying to compare the hype that TL gets Compared to What Ek got. It is my belief that TL is being over Hyped.

You say classic colt. So making a comparative statment that some can't comprehend then I have to re-explain it is classic?

02 Nov 2018 15:18:53
Actually Klim Kostin was the youngest AHL player last year. TL is 5 days older lol. Not by much but yes they are both very young. Did he not have a contract with the Seliga or something.

01 Nov 2018 02:17:12

Phoenix:2rd 2019,3rd 2019

Agree1 Disagree9

01 Nov 2018 03:17:16
If Detriot is offering up AA for draft picks. I would consider him. Maybe a good fot with Drai.

01 Nov 2018 03:24:02
Ya honestly I don't think he's worth a first because his stats are not so great and it's not like he's 21 and will get significantly better but I think in his prime he can be a consistent 35 to 45 point winger or center I know he has the capability of playing either position. Atm he's a center right?

01 Nov 2018 13:33:22
Athanasiou is young, fast, versatile, inexpensive, and will be on the team for years. Detroit won’t be trading him for picks.

01 Nov 2018 13:59:22
He's listed as a center. Injured right now. Left handed. Can play both center and wing tho, Not sure what he's played more of over the years. I think When I've noticed, he was on the wing.

01 Nov 2018 14:00:51
Drafted 110th overall in the 2012 drafts tho. Already 24 years old. got to break out any time now. I think he's got a good skill set and could be a 40-50 point winger year in year out. That's pretty solid.

01 Nov 2018 02:14:40
St Louis: Schmaltz

Toronto:4rd 2019

Agree0 Disagree8

01 Nov 2018 13:43:39
Toronto doean’t need Schmaltz, who would be 3RHD at best. The value is probably fair. But we have enough depth defensemen whi can olay that role for us. Would rather keep the pick to draft someone younger.

01 Nov 2018 15:46:07
Sorry schmaltz wouldn't be 3rd best on your team. Only reason he hasn't risen to the top at STL is becuase he is behind Petro and Parayko whom are better than any RHD the leafs have. He has produced great numbers at the AHL level. Yeo went with a tougher dman on the third pairing. Now that schmaltz has been given a chance he is playing extremly well. Blues wouldn't trade him for that crap. Good luck.

01 Nov 2018 15:54:53
ahhh a love those 4rd round picks. almost as much as those 3th round picks. or the 2st or 1nd rounders.

01 Nov 2018 16:18:26

You’re missing players still. You only listed two players Schmaltz was “stuck behind”. There’s seven defensemen on a team. Which leaves at least another RHD, plus the entire left sode that schmaltz could play if he really was so good. I mean, are you really going to tell me that Blues would rather play Dunn, Bouwmeester, Butler ahead of a stud defenseman like Schmaltz? LHD or RHD, at that level it doesn’t make a huge difference. The best get played while the rest sit.

01 Nov 2018 23:16:23
Redwwings/ Colt55 don't give me that craps. The guy is 25, was drafted in the first round yet and never played as a rectangular in the nhl yet. So what he is a bust. I'm not saying he's not going to play in the NHL on a regular basis but if he does it won't be a top 4 role more like a Jordie Been type player. Cut the craps Legros.

01 Nov 2018 02:02:05
Mtl:Sherback,2rd pick,Schlemko@ 10%retain


Agree0 Disagree7

01 Nov 2018 03:19:08
Not interested in Schlemko at all. Have too many guys for that 3rd pairing role at the moment, Garrison, Benning, Bouchard, Gravel, Bear and Sekera when back.

01 Nov 2018 03:26:49
Schlemko is only they're for cap trust me no one is interested in him I thought he was good in San Jose but he just sucks. Your getting Sherback who's in the same boat but two years older and a second to compensate for age and draft position.

01 Nov 2018 15:50:57
Oilers wouldn't take on schlemko even if they had the cap room.

01 Nov 2018 15:55:17
Oh ya, well if the Oilers put Puljujarvi on the block the. They aren't taking back a cap dump I can tell you that for sure. Unless the player is proven which Sherbek is not. Oilers aren't taking in cap dumps, that's just a bad idea and they literally can not right now money wise.

31 Oct 2018 10:19:46
Ok so I posted a trade for Jesse Puljujarvi to Montreal a couple days ago. The feedback I got is that he is not worth a first round pick at this point or to be more precise he's not worth Montreals first round pick is what was said. I still think mtl should add him to they're team because of Kotkaniemi. So we have a prospect who's in the same boat as Pul. Extremely talented but is not gaining the trust of Claude Julien. So here ya go

Mtl:Sherback, 2r 2019(the second latest), Cal Fleury

Edm:Jesse Puljujarvi

Agree4 Disagree14

31 Oct 2018 12:53:13
What has Puljujärvi done to make you want to risk 3 young pieces? He was great at a World Junior tourney but has he done anything else?

31 Oct 2018 16:00:26
Still think this is too much from a habs fan.

31 Oct 2018 16:09:02
I don't mind scherbak going back in the deal but in order to take another contract on now we would have to let 2 go back in the deal. when schlmko and weber return from injury we are going to have to lose somebody as it stands now. i assume schlmko will be dealt or waived but weber will still put us over the contract limit which means someone else will have to be moved as we'll. so in order for it to work it would have to be scherbak + current roster player. Unless another deal comes up where we trade a roster player for a prospect beforehand.

31 Oct 2018 20:21:01
How is KK not gaining the trust of Julien? If he wasnt. he wouldn't be playing. unless I read that wrong. I know he's protecting him. but that doesn't mean he doesn't trust him. .

I don't mind the trade. I'd prefer we add Schlemko over Fluery. however not sure Edmonton would want Schlemko. or could afford his contract.
There is a strong Finnish presence on MTL., I don't know if that means a whole lot. but both Scherbac and Puljaarvi could maybe use a change . fresh start.

31 Oct 2018 22:39:22
He speaks the same language as Kotkaniemi so Montreal should trade for him?

01 Nov 2018 00:53:34
Sosa you have to stop you drinking I'm worried for you. Once u get sober you'll realize that my message clearly is about Nikita Sherback and not Kotkaniemi. The only part that Kotkaniemi is involve in is to say that they're both Fin him and pul. Sherback is the prospect whos in the same boat. he's not gaining Julien's trust so he's in AHl atm.

01 Nov 2018 00:53:55
In worried for you Sosa.

01 Nov 2018 01:56:11
Thanks for the support Boom Boom
. Ya ya., I read it wrong. however, in your explanation. not once did Sherbac name come up. anyway. whatever. Lol. Hahah. that was Thanksgiving there Chochi. let it go . Find new material.

01 Nov 2018 02:19:47
Also. BoomBoom. don't think Scherbac is in AHL? Is he. pretty sure he would have to clear waivers now, and pretty sure he would get scooped up right away.
I think he's just sitting in press box atm.
I have read that Habs may be interested in pursuing Muzzin.? Maybe Scherbac would be in some sort of a package to land him. Not sure . but. I'll go have my "hard plain water" and ponder what they should do.

01 Nov 2018 04:35:20
Ya he's in AHL for Conditioning theyres a clause that let's u send a player for maximum 14 days to you AHL team just to train with the team and get a couple game. You're still technically in the NHL and get paid NHL salaryy.

01 Nov 2018 04:48:35
So he doesn't have to clear waivers for that? I've never heard of it. the clause. but cool. once a season I take it? I thought he has just seen a healthy scratch all season. notice he doesn't have any AHL stats yet.

01 Nov 2018 09:47:47
Sosa they'res 3-4 articles about it and they explain how it works. It's how I found out yesterday. I dint even know about it either.

01 Nov 2018 10:43:07
Type Nikita Sherback conditioning.

01 Nov 2018 15:43:06
It's been disappointing for schlemko since he came to the habs. Being injured two seasons in a row must be awful for the guy. he's actually a decent 3rd pair dman when healthy.

01 Nov 2018 15:44:47
@sosa. I think he meant Scherbak isn’t gaining the trust so swapping him and Pulj could work for both.

01 Nov 2018 15:46:44
He questioned whether or not he read it wrong boom boom. I can see how he may have took it the other way. Plus like he said before when he's drinking you will know it lol.

01 Nov 2018 15:51:28
@sosa I heard that about muzzin too. He would be a good pick up for a lot of teams. i feel like there would be a minor bidding war for him if he goes on the market. Habs would have to really step up, scherbak could be a part of a package but what else would be needed? May be more then we would be willing to part with. I'd like to have him in the line up though just the same.

01 Nov 2018 15:58:46
Yeah. Lots of guys go on conditioning stints in the AHL. I assume he’s on a 2 way contract still so they can send him there and it protects him from waivers. If the player is on a 1 way contract, the player has to agree to it. Leafs did it a cpl years ago when Bernier was struggling in net and was on the bench. Rather than just sitting there, they asked his permission to send him to the Marlies, he accepted, played 4 games and let in 5 goals and had almost a .950 sv%. Then came back up. It can be used as a motivator to show how much better the NhL is than the AHL for players and why they have to work harder, can also be used as a confidence builder. Scherbak might be both.

01 Nov 2018 17:21:16
Honestly Habby, I'm not sure what else we would have to give up. but, I don't know if I'd want to go down that route.
I think Habs should stay the course. let the team grow, we aren't in a position to be a contender, even with Muzzin. maybe in a year or 2. we can start adding peices that can help contend.
I like the development of some of the young guys.
Also. what is Muzzins contract. guess If I knew that, may change my mind
I see why you would want a guy like him. and so would I. just not sure we are ready.
I also want Scherbac to be a damn player. lol. Had really high hopes for him.

01 Nov 2018 20:51:31
And thanks Jim. and Boomboom for educating me on that. didn't know you could do that.

31 Oct 2018 00:48:50
Rumour has it Bobrovsky has provided Columbus with a trade list. The perfect fit for each party would be Saint Louis different division and fits positional wise

Also Paniran and Taresanko are best friends probably dosent mean anything but Senko and Paniran on the same PP could be the best in the NHL. Paniran has by far the most underrated 1 timer in the game.

Option 1- most logical comparison would be Ryan Miller to Saint Louis.

Saint Louis: Robbie Fabbri/Kyrou ,Alexander Steen And 1st 2019

Columbus: Sergei Bobrovski

Option 2- it will look like a underwhelming offer but both are rental and their value is at an all time low.

Saint Louis: Robert Thomas, Jayden Schalmltz, Robbie Fabberi, Alexander Steen, Jay Boumester and 1st 2019

Columbus: Antemi Paniran And Sergei Bobrovski

Just a heads up all rentals get an underwhelming return that's why Tavares wasn't traded and Karlsson went for so little.

Agree1 Disagree11

31 Oct 2018 02:32:03
Are you high. Are you on something.

Why would the blues trade that much talent for two expiring contracts. It's just not going to happen. Thomas will be a 1c, kyrou will be top6 schmaltz just made the team and looks good. Fabbri may make a come back be a 60pt player he was projected to be before injuries.

Bobrosky is not havingva goid year and blues can't afford resigning him. Panarin already stated he wants to be in a large market. I think the only reason it makes sense is cause we have great prospects.

31 Oct 2018 03:57:04
The first trade if you mean Fabbri or Kyrou, then Columbus would be jumping on Kyrou.

The second trade I can’t tell if you mean Schwartz or Schmaltz. Very confusing, especially since teir first names are so similar as well. There’s a big difference though. Schmaltz is a bust. 25 years old and has played only 30 games. Schwartz, on the other hand, is only a year okdee and already a veteran of almost 400 games.

Not sure about the first trade. Certainly if Columbus can’t get a better offer, they would take it. The second trade Columbus definitely takes. Especially if its Schwartz and not Schmaltz.

St. Louis is the big loser in this proposition.

31 Oct 2018 09:51:50
Hes obviously talking about Schmaltz.

31 Oct 2018 11:42:59
Can't call schmaltz a bust. He got stuck behind petro parayko. Chose a rough bortuzxo to play third line duty. Schmaltz was a stud in ago and just needed and opportunity to stick which he is doing.

31 Oct 2018 12:59:50
Yah no way Saint Louis trades Schwartz. I meant Fabbri or Kyrou. And I feel you redwing losing Thomas would be tough but that’s whatd it’d take maybes Kyrou instead.

31 Oct 2018 17:43:45
Why on earth would you lose a 1c or a top 6 winger on elcs both 19 years old for a rental. It's dumb.

You say that's what it takes but blues didn't pay that for jaybo, didn't pay that for ror. Armstrong doesn't trade his best prospects for veteran rentals.

31 Oct 2018 22:40:54
If you meant Schmaltz, then why did you call him Jayden?

30 Oct 2018 23:41:43
Unlikely scenario, yes, but worth a go imo:

Toronto Trades: William Nylander (RW: RFA - Extension: 7.250 Million x 7 Years) + Josh Leivo (LW: 0.625 Million x 1 Year) + Andrew Nielsen (RD: 0.697 Million x 1 Year) + Vincent Loverde (LD: 0.700 Million x 1 Year) + 2019 3rd Round Draft Pick.

Edmonton Trades: Jesse Puljujarvi (LW: 0.925 Million x 1 Year) + Zach Kassian (RW: 1.900 Million x 1 Year) + Ethan Bear (RD: 0.720 Million x 2 Years) + Matthew Benning: 1.800 Million x 1 Year) .

Okay, this is a lot. I''l just break down my value assumptions:

Nylander + Nielsen = Bear + Pulj
Leivo + Loverde + 3rd = Benning + Kassian.

Toronto does this to alleviate a decent amount of cap [Appx. 3 Million], but also to show Marner/ Matthews that they aren't budging in terms of negotiations. Sure Toronto can also afford 7.25, but if we pay Nylander that, Marners going to command at least 9, and Matthews maybe 12. We tone it down, and maybe they do too. As well, we acquire a solid [step down] winger on a weak left side, and for the difference in value, we also get Ethan Bear, who is highly touted and would be tough for Edmonton fans to give up, but for Nylander, somethings got to give in terms of defence.

Edmonton does this to acquire a bonafide top line winger alongside McDavid, and they also alleviate cap by trading Benning and Kassian, both of which are harped on [on twitter at least] by fans, and take up nearly 4 million in cap space. They add more cap with Nylander, but its worthwhile since its a topliner, not two spare pieces. As well, they acquire Nylander by not trading any of Nurse, Klef or Larsson, which is big.

Toronto [Healthy] Lineup:
Puljujarvi - Matthews - Kapanen
Hyman - Tavares - Marner
Marleau - Kadri - Brown
Johnsson - Lindholm - Kassian

Rielly - Hainsey
Dermott - Zaitsev
Gardiner - Benning


Edmonton [Healthy] Lineup:
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Connor McDavid - William Nylander
Tobias Rieder - Leon Draisaitl - Kailer Yamamoto
Milan Lucic - Ryan Strome - Drake Caggiula
Jujhar Khaira - Kyle Brodziak - Alex Chiasson

Oscar Klefbom - Adam Larsson
Darnell Nurse - Kris Russell
Jason Garrison - Andrej Sekera.

Agree1 Disagree11

31 Oct 2018 00:21:14
Very in depth like usual. I like the time you put into your thoughts. For me it would depend on Ethan Bear, I don’t really know how good he is. If Bear is a projected top 4 then I’d be ok with it. I thought Puljujärvi was a RW but regardless, we’ll thought out. Nylander with McDavid would be fun to watch.

31 Oct 2018 01:13:47
Don't mind it but don't love it. Especially Nylander at $7.25M. Puljujarvi is a right handed RW not a LW. Sekera is a left handed LW not a RW.
Im all for trading Benning and Kassian to Toronto but just don't know what for. I would like Nylander, to play with Drai as McDavid and Nuge could use anyone and Drai could use a solid winger, but not Nylander for $7.25M. $6M sure.
I think Puljijarvi would be a good for in Carolina with buddy Aho, maybe not on his line but to have a good buddy away from the rink in the North American NHL would be good for young Pul. But Carolina is doing so well maybe they don't make a move right now.
I don't even think the Oilers can add Nylander for $7.25M with not that much going out. Russell or Sekera probably have to be included for it to even be possible, no?

31 Oct 2018 04:16:00

Normally I love your trades. But in this case I’m scratching my head.

In what world does Puljujarvi (probable bust) + Bear (a never was, who probably never will be) land you Nylander?

Yes, I may be jumping the gun saying these guys won’t amount to much, but up to this point, neither one has done much, while Nylander at 20 and 21 years of age was lighting it up for 20 goals and 61 points back to back seasons. I mean, its not even close: Nylander is 1RW with further upside, while Bear would be 3RHD on Leafs at best, ever. And Puljujarvi would be bottom six RW.

Finances would also make this trade difficult. Edmonton is at the cap limit and absolutely cannot take on any more salary.

31 Oct 2018 10:50:50
Oh s**, about the cap, i was using hockey buzz as a cap source and it said that EDM had 4 million cap space. Trade Kassian and Benning now and it becomes nearly 8.

I couldn't see TOR taking on either of Russell or Sekera, maybe Russell with salary retention, but if at all, i could see EDM trading Strome afterwards.

And the reason I want Pulj and Bear is because Pulj still has a lot of potential. He just hasnr made good use of it. We could always send him down to the AHL instead of playing him right away, and then sign him to a low bridge deal. And Bear is supposed to be a solid RD prospect, so i thought that that made up for it. As well, idk of Toronto has much leverage otherwise in Nylander trades, we really only have a month.

31 Oct 2018 13:03:01
Puljujarvi is not a player leafs should target.

31 Oct 2018 16:14:55
Might say that right now about the cap space because Sekera LTIR right now. But when he comes back there is no room. Would be alright to move Kassian out for a pick and little cap space. But ya, don't think they can bring in Nylander for $7.25M without that much going out. And I don't think Nylander should get a $7.25M a year contract myself. Sorry if that offends anyone. Just my lil ol opinion that shouldn't bother anyone that much. Sorry.

31 Oct 2018 16:15:34
But at the same time getting Nylander would be great because I would play him with Drai and play anyone with McDavid and Nuge.

31 Oct 2018 19:56:59
I’m offended yupper and scared. I’m going to be “super scared” without Matthews for this stretch, lol. Keep it up bro.

31 Oct 2018 22:41:27
Puljarvi is not a player any team should target.

01 Nov 2018 01:37:52
I love how easily I can trigger you my friend.
So salty over any and everything I say.

01 Nov 2018 04:14:31
Just get back to hockey talk buddy. You’re not offending anyone, just annoying and immature. How dare anyone challenge the great yupp without being “salty”. I think this has went on long enough, you?

30 Oct 2018 23:20:01
edm : jesse puljujarvi and a 3rd 2019 pick

colorado : tyson barrie

Agree2 Disagree6

31 Oct 2018 02:01:10
That's actually pretty ost in value. I know Emdonton fans think Puljuarvi is a god but atm he's looking closer to be the next Paajarvi rather then a stud so I would think they would take the in prime RHD that almost got 60 points last year rather then holding on to a possible future bust that turns out to be like Magnus Paajarvi.

31 Oct 2018 04:25:52
Why on earth would Colorado even consider this trade?

I understand Avs have Makar and Timmins coming up soon, which means one, or both, of Johnson or Barrie are trade bait. But Barrie is a 27 year old RHD 50+ point player making a very reasonable $5.5M for the next two years. I highly doubt Avs trade him for a guy who has 14 goals and 30 points in 100 games AS A FORWARD!

Its not even close. You need to develop a lot more respect for Sakic, who is showing the chops to develop Avs into a real contender much sooner than anticipated.

I think Colorado would want more to be honest. I know leafs had apparently asked about barrie 2 offseasons Aho and again last season after Duchene was traded away and the reports were the asking price was far too high for the leafs. A year later, a 3rd rounder and a talented player who hasn’t found his game at the next level I doubt does it. Could be wrong. Some people will say he hasn’t lived up to hype, others will say he’s due and hasn’t scratched the surface, both can still be true.

For someone so desperate to trade Puljarvi you seem to think he’s worth a lot. Why do you want to keep trading him if he’s so valuable?

30 Oct 2018 22:28:01
Oilers: Puljujarvi (for obvious reasons, the oilers do not trust him) + Kassian (requested a trade) + Benning (3 players around $5m)

Panthers: Petrovic (edm boy and would probably need a new start somewhere else and would look good with Nurse) + Bjugstad (RW oilers need) - ($6 m both players)

Kassian didn't request a trade. Find the article today and read what he said. He doesn't want to leave.
I read this is just his agent talking to the GM and the GM allowing him to look into a trade. No one wants to be a scratch and the agent is just doing his job for his client. Maybe there's a better fit out there. I also read this happens all the time in the NHL we just don't hear about it. It's an agent doing his job.

Third trade in a row involving Puljujarvi. Doesn’t this tell you all something? You’re all trying to dump him because he increasingly has the strong odor of a bust surrounding him.

Benning is decent and is about the same level as Petrovic, although they are both depth players and i'm not sure what the point of the RHD swap would be.

Puljujarvi and Kassian both stink and wouldn't land you Bjugstad.

Edmonton can’t afford even the $1M in extra salary right now either.

Any cool news or rumors going around now that we are 10 games into the season?

Side note, I love when players give kids sticks, pucks and make their day in any way. Like Ovie on Calgary the other night and Holtby. I bet that kind of stuff happens every day and every game but we don't see it all. I wish we saw more of it caught on camera.

See if there's any other news, rumors or stories out there on any other teams besides Edm and Tor.
I'm sorry if this upsets anyone but let's change it up a bit on this thread. Is that possible? Let's see.

Unrelated to hockey, I'm on a big pipeline project in Sask Canada right now. Building 280km of pipe to Manitoba border and going to be going through Brock Lesners property in a few weeks. Think he will bring out hot chocolate?

Hey Yupp just curious because i'm a plumber, what's your trade?

30 Oct 2018 23:25:16
The biggest thing I heard is Wilson appealing his suspension.

And it getting denied.

So he appealed the appeal.

I can't understand why there's an appeal to the appeal, and don't understand why the NHLPA sides with Wilson. its a players association, sure, you stick up for the player, but he intentionally and deliberately injured another player. shouldn't you be more harsh?

(Not really a rumour, just an opinion, lol)

As well, Borowicki (future Ottawa captain, @Rambo) got suspended, came back, and got suspended again. Second suspension was a bit much tho.

I have a few tickets in NDT. X Ray and ultrasound and others. Inspecting the welds on this job with ultrasound on this project. Been doing mostly plant work the last ten years but have been doing pipeline work all across Canada now since June. I'll probably bounce back and fourth from plant shutdowns and pipleine work.

What do some of the rest of you do for work?

31 Oct 2018 00:39:43
I work at Chrysler in Windsor, with Kassian’s uncle. In 2008 I thought I might lose my job and took all the plumbing and pipefitting courses but never pursued it because I got my job back. I’m still considering moving out west to apprentice while my wife teaches. It’s tough to give up on a job that pays so well and has benefits out the ass though. I have a 20 year old that lives in Camrose, Alberta. I may have been an Oiler or flames fan by now had I moved, lol. Our talks would be quite different.

Ya Leafs17 u might of made the right choice not pursuing plumbing. Unless you are deeply passionate about it, it's not the way to go if u all u have in mind is money. I love the trade but for the headaches and possible bankruptcy with just 1 simple mistake u have to think about it twice. Unless u where planning on doing only residential then ure ok but comercial. Oh boy.

31 Oct 2018 04:49:26
I didn’t know that Boom Boom. I thought I was losing my job and was going for a trade. I hope it works out for you.

I occasionally work at an oil refinery, but I mostly do carpentry jobs either on my own or sometimes with other contractors.
