What would it take to pry John Gibson out of Anaheim?

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Feb 2019 17:54:35
Thompson and weise 104 playoff games
Agostino and chaput 0 playoff games. Do you think that might have influenced the change Sosa?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 19:41:48
Well, sure it didn't hurt., however, main reason, Chaput and Agostino just aren't NHL calibre players.

I want a Dman fo Petry to play with. any ideas who would be a decent fit. not a fan of Reilly as a top 4 man. Bottom pair, sure. but Kulak is doing well there.

12 Feb 2019 20:15:51
You can have Gardiner Sosa.

12 Feb 2019 21:20:27
I can assure you bergevin is looking. But I think if they land a top 4 guy it will be a trade where we help a team get out of cap trouble. Something like taking on a bad contract to lower the price of the defenseman. The west is so tight still a lot of the teams don't know if they will be buyers or sellers yet. I bet you bergevin has spoke to a lot of them proposing this idea though.

12 Feb 2019 21:26:12
I'd want more rugged Leafs 17. I personally think Petry is a better all round Dman than Gardiner, however both are puck movers.
I like the balance of a puck mover, with a rugged D first attitude. when PK had Josh Gorges, kinda the combo I'm looking for.
Now Gardiner with Weber may work. meaning Mete moves to bottom pair. taking out Kulak. However I wouldn't trade much for him. as, Gardiner will command way more $ than he is worth. so . won't happen.

12 Feb 2019 22:18:17
No it probably wouldn’t happen Sosa. Gardiner needs a solid player like Weber beside him and I think he’d be ok.

14 Feb 2019 00:26:06

14 Feb 2019 00:26:51
Makar and Jost for Horvat and Dipetro? You must be kidding.

12 Feb 2019 11:35:24
Not a rumour just wondering if anybody thinks that it is a good trade and makes sense for both teams. Forget the cap as well...
To EDM- Jonathan huberdeau, Aaron Ekblad
To FLA- Oscar Klefbom, Cam Talbot, Kyler Yamamoto, Evan Bouchard, 2019 2nd round pick
Who adds and how much. Don't just say "it will Never happen"

Agree0 Disagree3

12 Feb 2019 15:25:41
Oilers add a lot. Talbot is barely a starter by the looks of it. Moto is a good prospect, bouchard is not much and Klefblom is your big piece in all of this. I don't think this is really a starting point for a trade - maybe Drais gets a convo going.

12 Feb 2019 17:57:34
Bouchard, our best prospect and former 10th overall pick is “not much”? Also Draisaitl is doing better than Ekblad, how does that work when you say it just keeps the convo going? 🤔.

12 Feb 2019 19:14:42
Ya Bouchard is a top prospect, Moto is a decent prospect. I still think EDM would have to add, but I don’t know how much.

12 Feb 2019 20:13:47
How is Bouchard not a top prospect? Turkey, I think this may be only time I have ever disagreed with ya lol. I'm not a huge fan of Yamamoto. I jus don't see it. him being a consistent NHLer. he's someone Oil should move.
I'd hate to see Drais leave Oil, as he is a Star player and I like his overall game. however, he is going to have to be the peice Oilers move to improve this team. Its unfortunate, but in order to fix the mess of Chiarelli, Drais will have to be sacrificed.
Talbot doesn't hold any value. Klefbom is ok, however, I am always left feeling he can/ should do more? .

12 Feb 2019 21:16:25
Edmonton adds and they can't afford those two contracts anyway. So it will never happen lol.

12 Feb 2019 11:34:41
Have a difference of opinion on petro and muzzin with leafs gm.

He states that muzzin is better than petro.
I know he is wrong what does the board think.

Agree1 Disagree1

12 Feb 2019 12:50:45

However, for the assets which Toronto gave up for Muzzin comparative to your (or the general) asking price for Petro, I’d say that it was better that Toronto got Muzzin and kept Kapanen, Johnsson and Liljegren.

Muzzin imo is a top 30 RHD - potentially #22-25 or so, and I think in general, he was a solid pickup.

In this scenario, picking up Muzzin over Petro based on asking price and team needs makes more sense for Toronto.

12 Feb 2019 13:58:32
I think Petro is a bit better of a player but Muzzin making $4.1 mln vs. Petro at $6.5 mln next year makes him more attractive to the Leafs when they are tight up against the cap. He's a good bargain for his salary and with Matthews/ Tavares/ Marner/ Nylander eating up like half the cap next year they are going to need as many bargains they can find to ice a 23 man roster.

12 Feb 2019 16:34:34
Muzzin is a good fit for the leafs because of his cheaper contract and the fact they didn't have to give anything from their current roster to get him. Who's better? Petro is a number 1 dman on a lot of teams and muzzin I'd have to check to make sure but I don't think would be number one on any.

12 Feb 2019 16:46:21
I'd say he's number one on Oilers and Canucks., maybe even Islanders and Rangers, Devils. there's a handful of teams. but those are only ones I can think of, and not a a true #1. Like Habby said, Muzzin is a good fit on Leafs, but Petro is better Dman. and really it didn't cost nearly what Petro would have been.

12 Feb 2019 17:35:49
I'd take klefbom from edmonton pulock from the islanders the other 3 teams I guess you could make the argument. But I'd say edler is better he's just injury prone. and will butcher was better last year as a rookie IMO. but yeah the rangers for sure have nobody better.

12 Feb 2019 19:47:05
I think Muzzin is a poor man's Shea Weber. he's solid all over. not on same level as a Weber, ect. but he does a little bit of everything well. I live in BC, and unfortunately see a lot of Canucks over everything else. and, always thought Edler was overrated. Klefbom, isn't as consistent when he's healthy. Living in West, don't see enough of Pulock or Butcher.

12 Feb 2019 21:13:39
For as bad as those two teams have been (van/ edm) I think both muzzin and klefbom have been pretty good. The question is would those teams be better if they had muzxin instead? not a chance IMO. i like muzzin too but he isn't as mobile and he doesn't have the ability to play 25 mins every game like those two guys can.

12 Feb 2019 21:14:37
That could also be the reason they are injured more lol.

12 Feb 2019 21:29:41
Thank you gents. I Agree the price on petro is steep. I also agree that muzzin was defiantly had for a cheap/ good price that didn't cost them much.

Thanks for you time.

12 Feb 2019 21:31:31
After Klefbom got hurt Nurse has 17 points in 24 games and was playing up to 30 minutes a night. He’s on pace 40 for this season so I don’t know if Muzzin is better. Muzzin might be the better overall D but I’d say Klefbom, Nurse and Larsson are all close in caliber just younger.

12 Feb 2019 21:28:32
With regards to pulock he does everything muzzin does and he's only 24.plus he still has some more offensive upside. Muzzin has been better then butcher this year.

12 Feb 2019 21:46:19
Wish we had Pulock. from what I hear.

11 Feb 2019 18:52:07
Habs aquire nate Thompson and a 5th pick from La for a 4th pick. New 4th line center? Chaputs play against the leafs must have been the final straw

Agree1 Disagree2

11 Feb 2019 19:18:34
That was my guess. really surprised at the amount of activity for the habs right now.

11 Feb 2019 19:35:53
So him at Center, Weiss and Dalauriers as the wingers? Seems like a rough and tumble bunch.

Not really sure where this is going, still would like to see a Dman added, once Byron returns going to have more roster issues. lose more to Waivers possibly.

11 Feb 2019 19:42:35
They are trying to upgrade that 4th line without costing much. so far so good I'd say.

11 Feb 2019 19:47:54
As it stands Sosa I'm assuming chaput will be waived and hudon traded.

11 Feb 2019 20:17:12
Ya. I'm imagine that's what they do with Hudon. it's to bad, cause I think he still could be a decent 3rd liner. and they won't be able to get much more than maybe a 4th for him.

11 Feb 2019 20:28:26
So what would be the bottom 6 now? I feel like we are getting tougher and remember the last time with did that how it turned out? Part of the Dwight King attempt.

11 Feb 2019 20:42:31
Ya. I remember that Turkey. didn't work that great lol.
I like Weiss addition and Thompson is an upgrade over Chaput.
With a Healthy line up

Drouin Danault Gallagher
Byron Domi Tatar
Lehkonen KK Armia
Shaw Thompson Wiess/ Deslauriers?

Not sure.?

11 Feb 2019 20:46:52
What I'd like to see most going forward is an upgraded partner for Petry. I'm not a big fan of Reilly on 2nd pairing.

12 Feb 2019 01:14:32
Good deal for the Habs.

11 Feb 2019 18:09:12
Oiler Trades;

EDM: McElhinney, Hamilton, Ferland, 2019 1st round pick

CAR: Draisaitl, Manning, Talbot

EDM: Ceci, Dzingel, Smith

OTT: Spooner, Benning, Rieder, 2019 1st round pick (CAR)

EDM: Lewis

LA: Lucic, 2019 1st round pick - OR Yamamoto

EDM: Nylander($3,000,000 retained this year), Brown

TO: Puljujärvi, Larsson

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Feb 2019 23:16:02
no from oilers
No from senators
No from kings
No from leafs and can’t retain salary for a single year. Has to be full length of deal and no way they do that.

12 Feb 2019 07:13:48

12 Feb 2019 21:35:18
Why would the leafs say no to that? Puljujarvi can develop in to a top line guy and not being on the Oilers would be a good first step. Also playing with Tavares or Matthews would help too. And Larsson is exactly what the leads need. No way from the Oilers on that one IMO.

13 Feb 2019 05:13:40
I’m not a believer in poolparty as I have said. he may turn into something decent but asking another team to take him and give a far better young player while paying almost half his salary for us just isn’t going to happen. I didn’t say I don’t want it to happen. I said leafs would say no. Nylander makes less than $7 mln I think so Why would they pay $3mln of that when they’re capped out for him to play for us? Makes zero sense.

11 Feb 2019 02:42:37
Winnipeg Jets trade Niku to Washington Capitals for Burakovsky and a 3rd.

Both players are available. Winnipeg is looking for someone who can play now for this year’s playoff run, while Washington is looking for futures.

Jets can afford Burakovsky, who gives them solid depth. Washington gains a decent prospect and cap space.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2019 03:58:30
I think if Jets trade Niku, it's in a package to land a 2nd line centerman.

11 Feb 2019 04:21:19
I'm not sure that the jets are open to moving Niku but stranger things have happened.

11 Feb 2019 04:51:45
I think the jets would move niku but they would have to get something more in return. like a package with niku in it for something good that would be a difference maker.

11 Feb 2019 13:01:22
Burakovsky is a winger, so not needed by the Jets at all. Washington is trying to repeat as Stanley Cup champs, so I doubt they trade depth. But if the Jets did want him Niku is way too much to give up.

11 Feb 2019 17:43:57
I know Jets need center more than wing. But they might not be able to get a decent center without having to disrupt the roster. Burakovsky doesn’t cost them a single roster player here, and provides good depth and insurance for injury. And as pending RFA, he won’t get anything close to the $3M he currently makes. Niku is good, but his brief stints at NHL level have been uneventful. He’s a while from being a full time nhl player that can contribute in a meaningful way. Jets have got to be thinking they are contenders this year. I can’t see how adding a guy like a Burakovsky to the team would hurt. If Niku isn’t the guy, then maybe Stanley?

11 Feb 2019 17:53:14
Stanley or Niku are both too much to give up for a 4th line depth player. Maybe a 4th or 5th pick, not an NHL ready defenseman or a former first round pick that is progressing nicely in the AHL.

11 Feb 2019 17:53:46
I can’t see the Jets trading Niku for Burakovsky.

10 Feb 2019 18:39:13
Randy Carlyle fired.about time IMO

Agree0 Disagree2

10 Feb 2019 19:23:05
Ya, I'm not sure what is going on there. they have a really good goalie, a talented top 4 D, . The forwards are an aging group, the core anyway., just think they should be better than what they are
Do you see big moves at deadline, like a clean house? Or, wait and see next season what a new coach can do.
Also. has the game passed Carlye by? Time to retire?

10 Feb 2019 20:07:44
3-0, 5-1, 9-3, 6-1, 4-1, 4-0, 6-2.

How you keep your job after the 9-3 loss [and the teams skid] is beyond me. How he keeps the job after the 12 game skid is beyond me.

The Ducks/ Kings though, from the few games I've seen, have just been putrid. Old, slow strategies that just don't work anymore.

10 Feb 2019 21:09:37
As tight as the west is a new voice with a couple easy adjustments to the style of play could get this team back into the playoff picture. So it's tough to say what they will be doing yet at the deadline. I'd be selling if it was me though. perry and getzlaf would be first to go probably going to have to retain on perry to get any type of return but getzlaf still has some value.

10 Feb 2019 18:37:53
Habs place agostino on waivers. Hopefully chaput is next

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2019 19:24:18
Lol. I seem to like Chaput more than you., however wouldn't shes a tear to see him gone.
Habby, with what we have, what is the 4th line you would like to see?

10 Feb 2019 21:17:11
Chaput line killed us again last night. I'd like to see us add a good 4th line center maybe glendenning? And have him centering deslauriers and shaw or byron. Now in Julian's system 4th line still gets minutes so with shaw and byron still killing penalties and probably some pp time they would still get their ice time in. plus they could each take a shift here and there on the other lines to change things up.
Tatar domi armia
Drouin daneault gallahger
Lehkonen kotkaniemi shaw/ byron
Deslauriers glendening shaw/ byron.

10 Feb 2019 21:24:09
Also weise could be added in deslauriers place if he can make the team. then the 4th line is byron glendening weise.

10 Feb 2019 21:59:53
Eventhough he's always been a pain in the you know what and seems to play his best against the habs jean gabriel pageau could be a nice pick up too.

10 Feb 2019 23:32:32
I'd love to get Pageau, not sure what cost would be. don't think we can get him. Glendening is interesting though.

11 Feb 2019 04:52:24
I'd say our option would be someone like marcus Kruger.

11 Feb 2019 18:05:50
If that's all of are options Habby, might as well just forget about it. Kruger is useless.

11 Feb 2019 19:03:02
Nate Thompson bud. Not the best option but a solid 4th line center.

12 Feb 2019 11:33:43
Nate Thompson is 2 times better then Kruger Habby. You said someone like Kruger not Thompsom.

12 Feb 2019 15:20:14
@boom wasn't talking to you to be honest. I like Thompson more then Kruger too. Better on face offs and a little more physical.
