Mtl- hudon- 3rd pick 2020

Pittsburgh- bjugstad

Habs play bjugstad on the right wing with domi and drouin. Habs need a big rhd shot on the pp. Bjugstad contract have 2 more year and his a good fit for the habs

Pittsburgh gets a cap relief and gamble on hudon and get a decent pick

04 Aug 2019 20:26:21
Habs need a big rhd shot on the power Plays? Did weber get traded? Lol.

02 Aug 2019 13:18:00
Did Ken Holland find his 4 leaf clover? Why do Pittsburgh and Ottawa do this?

And why do free agents take a show me deal in Edmonton instead of contenders?

02 Aug 2019 19:10:22
Oilers trade another linemate of mcdavid, kassian can skate and Will keep playing with mcdavid and drai.

03 Aug 2019 02:25:29
@monkeyful that's exactly what they need. A show me contract, you think they don't have to prove themselves after getting bought out? Loool overvalue people just to be against others on this site no matter what eh?

02 Aug 2019 03:02:23

EDM: Puljujarvi

02 Aug 2019 06:18:32
Pretty fair imo but i think edmonton hangs onto Pully

02 Aug 2019 18:42:35
I don’t think Edmonton CAN hang on to Pulj, I’m pretty sure he’s said no matter what he’s never playing for them again. Though I may be misremembering.

02 Aug 2019 19:11:36
He said that, but has no more options, he bluffen about going to europé and Holland won't trade him for scraps.

01 Aug 2019 17:45:05
Oilers: puljujärvi + 2nd round pick

Penguins: bjugstad

Penguins is trying to free up som cap space
They have good centers that can take his spot

Oilers get their last piece they are looking for a 3rd line center

01 Aug 2019 18:49:53
Bad for the Oilers. Bjugstad doesn’t add anything to our team. We already have a 3rd line centre.
So we’re paying Puljujärvi AND a 2nd round pick for a guy
who has only played ONE full season and last season scored 26P in 36 games?
Did you forget that we signed Granlund?

01 Aug 2019 19:52:28
not 36 games. 64 games. sorry, typo.

01 Aug 2019 20:02:55
Granlund won't play one minute as center! He will play LW, Holland has even said that he is looking for a 3rd line center.

01 Aug 2019 21:18:02
Grandlund at 3C will lead to a disappointment they should sign Brassard to 1 year 1mil deal.

01 Aug 2019 22:17:05
So Edmonton helps pitt by going over the cap well pitt gets under the cap? This really makes no sense at all for Edmonton. Charelli isn't running the team anymore.

01 Aug 2019 23:20:20
Don’t see the point of getting Bjugstad let alone add a 2nd.

02 Aug 2019 01:14:25

He will play centre. Trust me, he will. That is where he excels the most. Also, you didn't explain why we would give up Puljujarvi AND a 2nd for a centre who scored 26 points in 64 games.
Riddle me that one.

02 Aug 2019 03:14:00
Bjugstad is decent.

02 Aug 2019 05:48:40
Tyba you should look up your facts?!

Both Holland and tippett have said that they see him as a LW on oilers

Yeah sure bjugstad scored 26p last year but the year before he scored 49p

Sure i would rather have brassard for 2m but that won't happen as he wants 4m to play for oilers.

02 Aug 2019 11:16:23
Swechamp there is no way he gets 4 million Brassard from was terrible last season.

02 Aug 2019 19:13:32
Thats what he asked for to sign for oilers, may be lower on other teams but that what he asked for.

03 Aug 2019 11:46:06
He’ll probably take what he can get.

26 Jul 2019 21:50:43
Edmonton- Patrick Hornqvist

Pittsburgh- James Neal ( 1 million retained ), Jesse Puljujarvi and 2nd 2020

Edmonton- gets rid of a cap dump and brings in an effective player in Hornqvist.

Pittsburgh- takes a flyer on Neal hoping reunited chemistry Sparks his play and also get two prospects to help with their poor prospect group.

*maybe Pittsburgh adds a conditional pick based on Puljujarvi's performance.

26 Jul 2019 23:50:31
This is so bad man.
Sorry Leafs17, didn’t mean to hurt your feeling.

Can you believe the Oilers got Neal for Lucic!? Didn’t even have to give a 1st away with him like Dubas had to do with a bad contract.
The Oilers are keeping Neal and he’ll bounce back with at least 20 goals. Make my words. I’ll eat them if he bombs, and if he does, his contract is insanely better to buy out than Lucic. Great gamble. Great trade. This pprooosed trade by you is garbage. Lol.

27 Jul 2019 01:52:12
Well Dubas did not have to take James Neal’s contract back in the deal either.

I think Holland did well in this deal and agree Neal could bounce back, but that’s still a boat anchor of a contract at this point. He traded what was most certainly crap for different crap that may or may not be less crappy.

I agree this proposed deal stinks though and Edmonton is way better off just keeping Neal and giving him every chance to succeed (lots of PP/ McDavid time) .

27 Jul 2019 02:23:59
Yupp no matter how you look at it Neal is still garbage not Lucic garbage because no one is but he has negative value Hornqvist is still very good. No ones denying he won’t score 20 but aside from that he contributes nothing.

27 Jul 2019 04:11:49
Pittsburgh traded neal away to get hornqvist.

Their prospect pool is thin, but they're still in win mode, not time to tear down yet.

27 Jul 2019 07:15:11
i'd do it from edmonton perspective, but i'd think they'd give neal a chance to play with mcdavid/ drais/ rnh before trading him right away, they just got neal.

27 Jul 2019 13:16:07
I didn’t make the post but thanks for thinking of me. It must suck obsessing over a complete stranger.

05 Jul 2019 03:49:32
MTL: Brooks

Pitts: Jarred Mc

04 Jul 2019 12:31:23
Pittsburgh Penguins:

Nick Bjugstad

Vancouver Canucks:

Troy Stecher

5th Round Pick 2020

Guentzel - Crosby - McCann

Galchenyuk - Malkin - Hornqvist

Kahun - Blueger - Rust

Simon - Aston-Reese - Tanev

Letang - Dumoulin

Schultz - Stecher

Pettersson - Johnson/ Riikola.

04 Jul 2019 18:41:07
No from Vancouver. I like Bjugstad, but I like Stecher even more. Not to mention Stecher fills a bigger need for us than Bjug does.

02 Jul 2019 16:16:33
Vegas- Nikita Gusev

Pittsburgh- Jared McCann And 2nd 2020

Vegas gets a young cheap player to plug into the bottom 6 and a 2nd for a player they can't afford.

Pittsburgh gets a potential elite player to play with Malkin.


02 Jul 2019 23:42:36
I'm curious to see what Chucky will be able to do with a real center!

03 Jul 2019 02:03:58
No from Vegas. Return could be bigger imo. Teams 100% are already having a bidding war. Gusev for 4 million when Panarin signed for like 12? Teams with not a lot of salary cap will overpay with picks and prospects.

03 Jul 2019 03:16:08
I think it’s safe to say Galchenyuk will have a career year playing with Crosby or Malkin. I could probably score 20-30.

03 Jul 2019 03:18:22
Blues could offer fabbri, Edmondson schmaltz for fuse.

26 Jun 2019 02:41:06
I understand these two teams are huge rivals but wouldn't this make sense?

Philadelphia- Travis Konecny ( RFA )

Pittsburgh- Phil Kessel ( 6.8 mil )

Philadelphia- Reunites JVR And Kessel together to form a Dangerous line with Kessel being a big upgrade on Konecny

Pittsburgh- Gets a top 6 cheap young replacement to make their team younger.

26 Jun 2019 05:58:35
PHI cap space isn't infinite either.

26 Jun 2019 11:03:04
Philly has just over 15 million in space after this trade with just Provonov to sign.

26 Jun 2019 19:41:02
They would have between 8 and 9 mil after this trade with provorov and Laughton to sign.

26 Jun 2019 22:52:04
You’re right I didn’t factor in the Sanhiem deal.

27 Jun 2019 06:27:18
They'd have around 8.3m left with Provorov and 3 depth F to sign. On a long term deal, I think Provorov gets 6-7m easily. Which is already big trouble cap wise for the depth Fs then. So tell me how this would work?

27 Jun 2019 15:35:37

Sign Provonov to a 3 year bridge deal of 5mil per the Flyers don’t need to sign anyone else. They have so many talented prospects in the system at all positions Carter Hart will be one of the Better goalies in the NHL next year.




Sanheim-Philip Myers

Carter Hart
Brian Elliott

I’ll take this lineup over the cup winning Blues any day.

28 Jun 2019 01:51:08
Robert hagg should be in there.

28 Jun 2019 07:14:01
Yeah, but you're also not very smart, VB. So keep that in mind.
And there is no way Provorov signs for 5m, imo.
Also that leaves them with minimal cap flexibility which every team is trying to prevent.

25 Jun 2019 20:27:55
Pittsburgh Penguins:

Phil Kessel

New Jersey Devils:

Pavel Zacha

Michael McLeod

1st Round Pick 2020

Conditional 2nd Rounder if Devils make Playoffs

Hall - Hischier - Kessel

Palmieri - Hughes - Lee (6.8 mil)

Bratt - Johansson (6.0 mil) - Boqvist

Wood - Boyle (2.7 mil) - Coleman

Subban - Vatanen

Severson - Butcher

Smith - Beaulieu (1.8 mil)

Greene and Zajac trade.

26 Jun 2019 10:09:40
I'd think pitt would have to add a prospect or pick, a bit much from NJD.

19 Jun 2019 00:55:10
Pittsburgh Penguins:

•) Evgeny Malkin

Florida Panthers:

•) Aaron Ekblad

•) Vincent Trocheck


Guentzel - Crosby - McCann

Hornqvist - Trocheck - Kessel

Rust - Bjugstad - Kahun

ZAR - Blueger - Simon

Letang - Schultz

Ekblad - Dumoulin

Pettersson - Johnson.

19 Jun 2019 04:54:35
Florida laughs.

19 Jun 2019 07:10:50
Gotta agree with VB for once.

18 Jun 2019 19:26:20
Cap space - From Cap Friendly

Pits - 6.3 M
CLG - 14.5 M
OTT - 34.5 M

CLG gets : P. Kessel 6.3 M 3 years
7th round pick (2019)

Pits gets : T.J Brodie 4.6 M 1 year
S.Bennett (RFA) sign for 3x2.8 M
2nd round pick (2020)

Cap relief

OTT gets : M.Frolik 4.3 M 1 year
(CLG retains 1M) making it 3.3 M
3rd round pick (2019)

CLG gets : 7th round pick (2019)

OTT gets: N.Bjugstad 4.1M 2 years
E.Gudbrandon 4m 2 years
(Pits retains 800k) making it 3.2M
2nd round pick (2021)
4th round pick (2020)

Pits gets: B.Harper 725k 1 year
5th round pick (2020)

Cap after trades

Pits -13 M
CLG - 18.5 M
OTT - 23.9 M

Gives Pittsburgh the ability to sign 1/2 free agents and they get a good Defender in Brodie also a 5/6 defender in Harper and a gritty 3rd line centre back....CLG gets a RW they really need and get cap relief to sign
TKACHUK & HAMONIC...OTT gets draft picks and can also trade those players for some draft picks if OTT also retain some of there salaries making them a lot more affordable to other teams .....just my thoughts I'm no GM lol

19 Jun 2019 01:11:51
I don't think frolik is a cap dump. He's a pretty decent 2 way forward, usually a .5 ppg player, not flashy but very consistent. His cap hit is only 4.3mil for 1 year, real money made is 3mil this year.

I think Calgary could trade frolik and get a puck or prospect instead of dumping him and a 3rd for a 7th.

17 Jun 2019 23:46:31
Mtl- drouin-mete-15 overall 2019
2nd pick 2020

Pittsburgh- malkin- 21overall 2019

Habs trade peca for a 4th pick

Buyout weise

Habs sign edler 20M 3 year
Resign benn 2year 5M
Sign talbot 2year 4M



18 Jun 2019 01:09:00
Hmm. if Malkin was 2 or 3 years younger I'd be all over this.

18 Jun 2019 05:15:13
Yah but if that was the case Pittsburgh wouldn’t if Podkolzin or someone falls to 15 I think pens consider.

17 Jun 2019 21:08:36
Pittsburgh Penguins:

•) Evgeny Malkin

•) 3rd/ 4th Round Pick 2019

Nashville Predators:

•) PK Subban

•) Kyle Turris.

18 Jun 2019 05:15:28
Huge no from Pittsburgh.

13 Jun 2019 16:12:18
Pittsburgh Penguins:

•) Phil Kessel

•) Jack Johnson

•) 3rd Round Pick 2019

Arizona Coyotes:

•) Christian Dvorak

•) 1st Round Pick 2019

•) 2nd Round Pick.

13 Jun 2019 16:24:52
If Kessel declined going to Minnesota don't see him accepting Arizona.

13 Jun 2019 19:31:57
Pittsburgh would never accept that.

14 Jun 2019 02:27:09
Doesn't make sense for Arizona.
Dvorak is one of the best young two-way centres in the league and those picks are going to be extremely valuable. Also, I don't think Kessel can lead a team like Arizona who doesn't have many offensive stars that Kessel can play with.

Also, there will probably be another team that might even offer more for Kessel. Some teams are desperate for scoring.

12 Jun 2019 17:19:52

- Craig Smith - decent middle forward and preds need to move some cap back
- 24th overall pick
- Fabbro

Thoughts ?

10 Jun 2019 04:53:44
Chicago: Crawford
Pittsburgh: Murray

is it close value wise? who would add.

10 Jun 2019 06:16:29
No thanks on murray; I would rather stick with Crawford with a prospect for back-up if he has heath issues. I would like to see Crawford step down after next year or sign a team friendly contract to mentor the future.

10 Jun 2019 07:01:22
Considering age difference, I’d value Murray way higher than Crawford.

10 Jun 2019 07:56:53
Chicago would add ofc.

10 Jun 2019 10:24:45
Chicago adds.

Crawfords age is the difference.

08 Jun 2019 01:41:34
MTL gives up: 2 2nd rounders and Ryan Peohling.

Pittsburgh gives up: Kessel.

08 Jun 2019 09:22:23
No from penguins

08 Jun 2019 15:56:00
Habs wouldn't include poehling in a deal for Ryan oreiily I doubt they would for kessel.

08 Jun 2019 16:21:04
No from Habs.

08 Jun 2019 19:44:41
not great for pittsburgh but it's terrible for the habs, why would they do this? gallagher is good for 30 goals in a full season. habs don't really need help on the wing (the box cutter position)

08 Jun 2019 20:01:04
if montreal does this they may as well trade gallagher to the sens for scraps, I would gladly use him on the top line of my wing.

07 Jun 2019 06:54:56
Florida Panthers:

Jonathan Huberdeau

Michael Matheson

6th Round Pick 2019

Pittsburgh Penguins:

Phil Kessel

Olli Maatta

5th Round Pick 2020.

07 Jun 2019 12:32:31
Florida gives up the two most valuable pieces.

07 Jun 2019 16:32:51
maybe a higher pick from pittsburgh or a prospect might make it closer but as written here, florida would say no.

03 Jun 2019 00:55:36
MTL gives up:Weber, Drouin, plus 2020 first rounder.

Pittsburgh gives up Malkin.

MTL signs UFA Karlsson TO 8 yr deal at aav of 9.5 million.

MTL immediately becomes a serious cup final contender.


03 Jun 2019 03:18:13
Serious cup final contender is pushing it no defensive depth after Karlsson their defence would be equivalent to the leafs pre much. Price is obviously amazing but the star power on their forwards is lacking unless Suzuki, Pahling or Kotekneimi can some how jump in and have a 100 point season.

03 Jun 2019 04:02:09
lol no, they seriously don’t.

03 Jun 2019 04:02:21
last i checked you can only sign 8 year deal if you own the player's rights? so are you saying they'll also trade for karlsson's rights prior to this deal?

03 Jun 2019 04:18:52
Considering Malkins age, I’d rather keep Drouin and the first. You can move Weber though if someone’s willing to take that contract.

03 Jun 2019 05:16:40
I think you have to have the player at the deadline or something too don’t you? I think only way to do an 8 year deal with Karlsson is a sign and trade with San Jose before July 1.

04 Jun 2019 04:01:56
Malkin s so very good. He is so much better than Drouin. Weber is captain. I do not think Montreal trades him just yet or Bergevin looks very bad. Malkin does not accept a trade to Montreal anyway.
