Arizona has many top young prospects but needs on-ice results next season. A top pick in this year's draft will likely not help; they need to shift talent from the future to the present. They also have lots of cap space.

Philadelphia's core cannot win as it's currently constructed with another first round playoff exit and a shakeup, not a retool or rebuild is needed. Although the pipeline has lots of prospects, the Flyers need to replace their core.

Philadelphia: Fischer and Strome OR 2018 1st (Dahlin protected) and 2018 CGY 3rd
Arizona: Voracek, Morin

Strome has struggled and can use a change of scenery. It's 2018 and he's still not an NHL regular. Voracek would replace Fischer and double the points production from that position. If Arizona wants to go big in free agency, Philadelphia can take Bolland's contract.

Voracek ($8.25MM for 6 years) scored 85 points last year, tied for 13th in the league with Marchand and Barzal, 1 point ahead of Tavares, 1 behind Stamkos, and 2 behind Ovechkin. He doesn't have the value that those players have but he's not some pointless plug. There's no room for Morin on Philadelphia's blueline but there is on Arizona's. He's not waiver exempt next year so he will be on an NHL roster.

Let me repeat, Arizona needs to start winning hockey games and become relevant to their fans. Years of top picks have failed to do that. They have done this type of trade before (Stepan and Raanta for a 1st and DeAngelo) and need points this year, not next or over the course of a career.

San Jose Sharls signs Evander kane to a 6 million contract for 5 years.

24 Apr 2018 10:23:14
Edm: Pul, Yamamoto

Car: Faulk

Edm gets a top 2 RHD without getting rid of any roster players. Would Carolina go for it? They assure a better future up front.

Agree0 Disagree2

24 Apr 2018 13:00:59
Oilers won’t trade both top winger prospects. Leaves them really really thin.

Agree2 Disagree1

23 Apr 2018 12:46:51
Edm: 2rd 2018

Van: Gudbranson

Maybe Guddy can break the top 4 in Edm worst case he's a good top 6 RHD at the cost of a second rd pick.

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Apr 2018 17:44:09
I think Edmonton would go for a puck moving defenseman but who knows.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Apr 2018 14:31:33
Mtl: Gallagher

Edm:1rd 2018, Lucic(500k retention)



Edm gets local boy Gallagher while getting rid of themself of they're cancer contract.

Agree0 Disagree4

23 Apr 2018 16:24:18
No. This is not good.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Apr 2018 17:37:01
I think that’s a big gamble for Montreal. If Edmonton finishes in the top 10 in the league next year, which they should, it will be a late first and a terrible contract for a solid player that is a fan favourite.

Agree0 Disagree3

23 Apr 2018 18:21:55
Leafs17, it's not a 2019 pick. It's this years.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2018 18:45:00
Montreal already has a couple big cancer contracts. and the last thing Habs should do is get rid of the 1 guy who comes to play each and everynight.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Apr 2018 21:19:00
No from Montreal big time Lucic and 1st=7th round pick. i'd say he has the worst contract in the nhl. 4th liner being payed 6 mil.

Agree1 Disagree2

23 Apr 2018 21:40:28
Good eye yup. Bad trade.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 01:58:36
Is it possible that Ben Hutton could fetch a second round pick in this or next years draft and what could teams be willing to pay to get a Brandon sutter?

Agree1 Disagree4

20 Apr 2018 04:32:58
I can't see a 2nd for Hutton. yes he's young. however, I don't see a lot of upside from him. I think on a lot of teams he's a 5th or 6th Dman. or in the minors.
As for Sutter. he may fetch a 2nd.

Agree0 Disagree3

20 Apr 2018 13:08:16
Suter may fetch a second? What? What did my eyes just see. After seing: "Sutter is worth at least 2 second rd pick" the pther day I just figured it was just Brocks / Ao99 being biased but after you a very knowledgeable hockey persona i'm wondering. Does Sutter has any skills that i'm not aware of? Or are you just influenced by Brock comments.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 15:50:38
Imo Sutter would have to be combine with a warm body to have any value.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 22:58:21
Suter is a cap dump without salary retention.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Apr 2018 01:51:50
Sutter is good at killing pks and has some leadership abilities that gms may like and he’s not too bad at faceoffs but I don’t see a spot for him as a center for 5e canucks next year or the year after as he’s being paid almost 4.5million and there seems to be some good center prospects coming up that would push him back to 4th line which would be a waste for him. I think on a really string team he’d be good as a 3c but he’s just overpaid.

Agree0 Disagree3

21 Apr 2018 03:37:36
Sutter a good player heys over payed he's geting 4.35 mill canuck would have to retain 1.35 i think to make him attractive to othere teams i like the oiler use him his better player then boyle and they would be getting payed the same.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Apr 2018 06:09:09
Brock, man, The Oilers don't need Sutter, get that through your Head. Wow.

Agree5 Disagree0

21 Apr 2018 07:52:12
Yea your right they got strome as a 3 line center real solid.

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Apr 2018 09:02:31
Strome: 82GP. 34P. $2.5M. RFA.
Sutter. 61GP. 26P. $4.375M. 3 more years. NTC.

Lol. I'd rather Strome right now thanks.

Agree6 Disagree0

21 Apr 2018 17:40:46
Ok so they get about the same amount of points the like i said canuck retain 1.375 sutter a much better at pk and faceoff and can play again other people top lines strome can't also he was play with mcdavid for part of the year what boosted up his stats.

Agree0 Disagree4

22 Apr 2018 13:35:16
Sutter is a plus 8 and sutter plays the most pk on the canucks strome -4.

Agree0 Disagree3

22 Apr 2018 23:25:36
Lol @yup
Brock is the new MontrealFinest except for the Canucks.

Sutter sucks. If you want us to take Sutter you can take Lucic without any retained salary.

Or give us Thatcher Demko.

Agree3 Disagree1

23 Apr 2018 04:20:23
Oiler gm would jump all of him for a 2 rd pick if canucks retain 1.375 lmao.

Agree0 Disagree6

23 Apr 2018 08:13:19
Brock. Your an idiot. Why would they bring a third or fourth line center in for $3M when they have hose positions already filler and don't have a need for Sutter. They would rather spend that money on something they need. Please get a clue.

Agree6 Disagree1

24 Apr 2018 10:32:27
Yup comon man. Obviously Brock isn't the sharpest pencil of the case but man really? A flat out idiot just because his hockey sense is off? Your the one whos a idiot for judging somebodys intelligence by they're hockey knowledge.

Colt he was oiler best d for the last 30 games lol.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 22:59:20
God that first trade is brutal for Boston. Pasta and McAvoy for Drais and Bear? Wow, lmao.

Agree3 Disagree3

23 Apr 2018 18:25:30
Yeah, bruins would not be trading both those guys at once. Drasatl has shown he’s a really good nhl player, he’s young and has a big contract. Same situation for Pasternak. But bear has shown he has promise and possibly a bright future, mcavoy drafted a year later has shown he can already play top pair minutes against top lines. Not even close to equal value. He’s a 2016 1st rounder vs a 2015 5th rounder and I’m aware draft position doesn’t always matter value wise down the road, but it does for the first couple years. Bruins passed on Bear 6 times in that draft, and they might regret that one day, but they aren’t giving you mccavoy to correct it haha.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Apr 2018 15:00:42
Asking Maple Leafs fan, what do u guys think of Kerby Rychel from his time in Toronto? I wanted mtl to draft him in the 2013 draft he reminded me of Alex Galchenyuk that we drafted a year before the way he played. Then when he got traded to Leafs I figured he was a bust but since he's been part of the candiens organization he did nothing but impress me. Could he be a late bloomer? he's only 23 and jas decent career stats. Plays rough too. Thanks for the feed back guys!!!

Agree2 Disagree1

19 Apr 2018 16:41:02
He could still be something but I think leafs management waited for him to prove his worth and it never happened. Part of the problem was he came to Toronto as a fairly recent 1st round prospect in a deal we flipped Harrington from the kessel trade. So he came in when the prospect pool here was just starting. Then he was passed by a handful of guys each season. So between him not grasping his opportunities and his opportunities being spread amongst a lot more young players, it wasn’t going to happen here. Although I do like that you admit he was a bust as a leaf at 21 and nothing but impressive as a hab at 23 haha.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Apr 2018 16:49:54
Coming in he was one 3-4 forward prospects in a weaker system that leafs thought could make a real impact in the NHL. But then Nylander comes over from Europe to the marlies, kapanen comes in, obviously they draft marner and Matthews who were never going to be in the same battle for a spot as rychel, but Connor brown develops from a 5th round pick, they trade for Zach Hyman. Soshnikov, Andreas Johnsson and Miro Aaltonen are all brought from Europe etc. He was just buried in the depth chart by better players.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Apr 2018 20:46:29
I wouldn't get too excited yet. A lot of players look good when they first get moved to another team. take sven andrigettho for example.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Apr 2018 23:50:37
@UnbiasedJim the reason I tought he was a bust has nothing to do with the Leafs themself. I tought the was a bust because he got traded for relatively nothing. Unless Harington had a ton of value at the time that I wasnt aware of. Why would CLB trade him for clost to nothing if he wasnt a bust? Nothing to do with Leafs honestly. i'm able to recognize the great talent leafs have even if i'm a habs fan thank you very much.

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Apr 2018 01:09:15
No, Harrington didn’t have a ton of value. Much like what rychel is now, he still had some potential but a long shot to be what he was drafted to be. Rychel was traded from Columbus because he didn’t like the way the coach was dealing with him and his development. Him and his dad (warren rychel) demanded a trade out of Columbus. Once that’s done, we all know it’s hard for a GM to get full value when every other GM knows the player doesn’t want to be there. They lose the leverage.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 01:09:36
Lmao. Call 19 and 20 year olds bust weekly but now have one of them on your team and all of a sudden he's a late bloomer. This is hilarious. Such a homer.

Agree7 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 04:39:05
Lol. Good call Yup.
As being a Habs fan, i'd love to see this kid be good. however, like Habby said. they always look good. when they start.
I'd be really overly happy if he could be a 3rd liner for the Habs. but even that is a stretch.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 05:00:29
To be honest, I've always liked him. Drafted first round by CLB in 2013. I've always thought he has potential but just hasn't been given the opportunity? I think less than 50 NHL games played, Such a small sample size so I guess you can't really say he just hasn't grabbed his chance and ran with it. Maybe he isn't performing well enough in the AHL to get the confidence from the organization to get the good looks? As mentioned above, maybe he's just getting passed by others in the same boat now.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 13:13:02
How am I being a homer explain? And Jimmy Connor Brown was a 6th rd pick.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 13:33:32
I wouldn't say rychel being a third linee for mtl is a strecht. When you look at at we have up front if he plays his cards right he might fit into a top 9 role.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2018 18:31:55
Okay, brown was a 6th round pick, not 5th. My bad. My point is that he was passed on the depth chart by a lot of guys drafted far later than him, or free agent signings who were never drafted. That’s the reason they moved him. Never heard any stories about him being a bad teammate or having an attitude in Toronto, but after being like that in Columbus, I imagine it might have happened a bit here too after he sees lots of other guys getting call ups before him. Just speculating tho, leafs management does a good job keeping that stuff quiet these days.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2018 11:12:06
A good friend offered up a $100 bet that Leafs will win the next three games.
I said done deal.
Good deal or no?

Agree2 Disagree5

16 Apr 2018 12:14:30
You just lost 100$ yup's buddy.

Agree2 Disagree7

16 Apr 2018 13:04:50
He must be a billionaire.

Agree4 Disagree0

16 Apr 2018 20:27:28
Obviously your chances are good yupper. I bet the oilers would’ve won 4 straight.

Agree2 Disagree3

16 Apr 2018 20:55:05
Actually, I’ll bet you $100 the leafs win 16 straight. Good deal or no?

Agree2 Disagree1

16 Apr 2018 23:45:03
If he made the odds 1:1 then you’d be a fool not to take that bet being spotted a 2 game lead lol I just got 20:1 odds on leafs winning the series and put $100 down. Pays $2000 so worth the risk. But I wouldn’t bet $100 to win $100 on it when they’re down 2 games and been badly outplayed lol.

Agree4 Disagree0

17 Apr 2018 00:42:31
Ya it is straight up. Lol. I would have given him some odds for sure. Leafs got to win the next 3 straight. That's pretty hard to do in any playoff series let alone Vs Boston when already down 2-0.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2018 12:06:32
I will give complete credit if the Leafs come back and win this series or win three in a row now. One down.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Apr 2018 18:47:26
Yeah. Never wanna be down 2 games obviously but good teams win at home. So you lost twice to a great team in their building. Leafs finished the season winning like 12 of 13 or something at home. So they can win 2 and go from there. But winning 4 before the bruins win 2 is definitely not easy. And having 2/ 3s of your checking lone (Kadri/ komarov) our makes it that much harder.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Apr 2018 13:48:58
Yup you should give him 33$ now and call it square lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2018 00:05:31
The universe well make it happen cause you a piece of poop with poop in his pants and no parent around to change your diaper / god hates you.

18 Apr 2018 18:28:16
Brock, are you in a special home that allows you 10 mins a day of computer time?

Agree4 Disagree0

14 Apr 2018 01:15:06
So I'm wondering how does Kadri get 3 games and Dustin Brown got a fine for pretty much the same hit. I'm starting to think Kings players are treated differently.

Agree2 Disagree7

14 Apr 2018 07:24:34
You say this two days after Doughty gets suspended for 1 game? 🤔🤔

As a Canuks fan you just really dislike the Kings. Inundertand that.
Kadri is a repeat offender and deserved his suspension. Can't believe people argue he's not a complete douchebag. I know people defended him a ton not too long ago.

Agree10 Disagree3

14 Apr 2018 13:47:06
I think the hit was called for you can’t let players go after your star players but imo he deserved a 1 game suspension I think 3 is to much. Dirty his but not an intent to injure.

Agree0 Disagree7

14 Apr 2018 13:51:41
Kadri deserved 2, which equates to around 5reg season. 3 is a bit much imo, cause that's like 7-8 reg season, but its a crackdown, so it makes sense.

However, if Marchand/ Backes pull out antics like this in the future of this series and don't get punishment, i'm going to be upset, cause this does set a standard.

Agree3 Disagree3

14 Apr 2018 16:16:46
You say the hit was warranted then say there was no intent to injure? Lol “the good for him for sticking up for a teammate” argument is bad. Drop the gloves with him and sit out for 5 minutes not run him from behind and sit for 3 games. I also think the wingels hit should’ve been a penalty and the brown hit you refered to should’ve been a suspension.

Agree5 Disagree0

14 Apr 2018 16:18:09
Also TopShelf isn’t it just double? 3 playoff games is equivalent to 6 regular season games I think.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Apr 2018 17:50:00
I don’t like that Kadri was suspended 3 playoff games but it’s was a deserved punishment. I’m a Kadri fan. He plays an important role and does it on the edge but keeps to the right side of the line most of the time. This was way over that line.
I get the frustration because he was called for boarding on wingels just before it for a perfectly clean hit from the side, then wingels fell awkward and I believe the ref let the crowds reaction influence his call. Then after getting that bad call, he sees the same guy throw a late elbow to marners head and he loses it. I get why he was pissed and went after him, but can’t drive a guy from behind when he’s alrwady on his knees. Stupid play.
Kadri fought joe Thornton (6’5 230) and Backes (6’3 225) 3 times while being like 6’0 180. So there’s no reason he couldn’t have just stood up for marner against wingels in a better way.

Agree3 Disagree1

14 Apr 2018 18:01:09
And @ Yup there’s a lot worse players in the league than Kadri lol You know, like Milan Lucic who is twice the size and spends his whole game taking liberties on smaller guys and also made a travesty of a 90 year tradition of class and respect by threatening to murder a player in a handshake line. Let’s reign in the ‘complete douchebag’ comments in your glass house lol at least kadris, as bad as it was, was at full speed in the middle of a game. Not 5 min after a game.

Agree2 Disagree1

14 Apr 2018 21:03:12
Almost every team has a douche bag. Kadri used to be a lot worse. He has played a little smarter since Babcock took over. I agree with Ebs that Kadri should’ve dropped the gloves instead. I also agree with Jim that Lucic is a douche bag as well and yup knows it. Kadri just happens to be a much better hockey player at a cap friendly price. I really think Martin should be in the line up when you play a beast of a team like the Bruins. I got to hand it to Komarov for not taking a penalty on the biggest douche bag in the league, Marchand. Unfortunately he’s the best player/ douche bag in the league. There needs to be a Marchand, “no kissing” rule made up. Was it Cooke that the league made a rule for waving his arms in front of Brodeur? That kind of crap should be an unsportsmanlike at least. Anyways, it could be a short series if the leafs don’t stay out of the box. They can’t match up physically but they have to try.

Agree4 Disagree2

15 Apr 2018 04:46:03
That was avery @leafs17.

And yeah @ebs, it probably is just double. I kinda say its like 2-3 reg season to 1 playoff, so ab 2.5 reg season.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Apr 2018 16:52:49
Thanks topshelf. I forgot about that d bag.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Apr 2018 12:08:26
I still laugh that you said "I'm starting to think kings players are treated differently" the day after Doughty was goven a one game suspension. If they were treated any different he wouldn't have been suspended.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2018 18:51:21
Yeah, I don’t think the doughty one deserved a suspension to be honest, don’t think it was any worse than sergachevs last night. Doughty went for a clean hit and got his head by accident, sergachev got a guy without the puck, blindside, elbow to the face. I don’t think he went looking for it, but when he saw their paths were crossing and the guy was completely unaware, he definitely followed through and didn’t make any attempt to let up or minimize contact.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2018 05:49:23
The league suspended him. And a day after this guys complains and thinks the league is treating kings players favorably. 🤔.

Agree0 Disagree0
