E. Malkin C
K. Letang D

J. Drouin LW
S. Weber D (1million retained)
1st 2019
2nd 2020

19 May 2019 15:47:29
No from Pits.

19 May 2019 08:44:26
What would be the asking price for Malkin? Pittsburgh needs defence but also cap space and Arizona needs a legit number one center.

Would this package get it done?

ARI : D Jakob Chychrun, C Nate Schnarr, D Pierre Oliver-Joseph & 14th Overall Selection

PIT : C Evgeni Malkin & D Olli Maatta

19 May 2019 14:36:31
Value wise not bad but Arizona feels like a place Malkin wouldn’t waive to.

19 May 2019 02:55:15
to Vancouver

to Pittsburgh
2nd 2019
4th 2019

Pittsburgh is becoming increasingly depleted and could use some assets. I don't think this trade happens if Malkin is still in his prime but he's starting to slow down and Vancouver really wouldn't know which version of him they'd be getting. If he's washed this is a steal for pittsburgh, but if he's still got a lot in the tank this would lift Vancouver way up as far as the Pacific Division is concerned.

19 May 2019 06:32:27
I’m sure Pittsburg will want more, and Vancouver won’t want to pay more.

19 May 2019 20:21:09
Worst Malkin proposal ever. A Defenceman heading towards bust, a bust winger who is 22 and his best season was what 25 points? and 2nd and 3rd lol.

20 May 2019 22:19:27
Better players and higher picks need to go back to PIttsburgh.

Boeser instead of Virtanen, Agree Joelevi's a bust and puts a detriment to the deal, and perhaps upping the picks to some 1sts are more realistic.

15 May 2019 04:42:25
There's some rumours that Pittsburgh is going to be blowing up the roster this summer and along with the fact that Montreal may make a big push for Matt Duchene I think this trade could make sense if they sign Duchene

Montreal: Philip Danault

Pittsburgh: Olli Maatta



15 May 2019 10:48:28
No from Montreal Matta fell of a cliff.

16 May 2019 03:42:42
Danault is a pretty good player, young, good contract. think it would be a bad idea to trade him for a project guy you hope gets back on track.

16 May 2019 09:48:32
Danault is now our Plekanec . and he was a good player. This was Bergevin best trade IMO. he won't trade him away.

16 May 2019 12:43:12
I feel Danault could fetch more

18 May 2019 21:01:11
A few years ago I would have said yes but now I would rather draft some young left handed defensemen and keep Danault. He's a guy that can be a very good 3rd liner and a good and temporary 2nd line center.

19 May 2019 00:38:28
I could've swore danault was montreals #1 center last year.

14 May 2019 00:36:51
to Arizona

to Pittsburgh

Joseph is a very good defensive prospect and would likely be the penguins' best defenseman after Letang in a short amount of time. kessel is kessel.

14 May 2019 13:16:49
He is not a very good defensive prospect he had a bad season and isn’t close for Malkin. Very similar to Jakob Zubroil.

14 May 2019 16:47:35
Malkin? Where are you going with that vbbb?

14 May 2019 20:17:14
Jeez, you would think Joseph is the next coming of Orr if he can get Malkin straight up lmao. Anyways, for the proposal itself? Not even close. Pittsburg will likely want a good prospect, a high pick and a roster player. Not one top 4 d prospect.

14 May 2019 20:35:04
Kessel i meant idk why I said Malkin.

14 May 2019 21:13:18
@vbbb because your gone completely mad and don't know what your talking about lol.

14 May 2019 23:12:14
Happy you really think Pierre Oliver Joseph a #2 dman in the QMJHL not second to best dman he’s a #2 dman on the average team is worth Kessel a PPG player in the NHL. POJ is a bust.

15 May 2019 06:31:45
No I don't that's not what I was talking about.

10 May 2019 19:13:33
To MTL : Evgeni Malkin

To Pittsburgh : Phil Danault + Shea Weber

Malkin has 4 years left on his contract. Weber still has 8.

I don't think it's a bad trade. By the time Malkin finish off his contract, Weber will only have 4 years left. Danault is the perfect player to fit behind Crosby. At the same time, MTL gets a little upgrade on their top 6.

10 May 2019 19:40:14
‘A littl upgrade to their top 6’

Aside from Webers contract being brutal, this is sinply a no from Pittsburgh.

10 May 2019 20:10:13
hahahah what a post lol christ.

11 May 2019 00:40:32

11 May 2019 11:49:30
I'd rather keep Danault and Weber. 50 points center for less then 4 million and only 26 years old is very valuable.

07 May 2019 21:15:27
As everyone here hopefully knows Malkin is probably done in Pittsburgh and the front runner is Florida. Kessel is also apparently on the the block. Letang,Guzentzel, Murray and Crosby are the Pens only untouchables the Panthers have a ton of cap and can afford to take on both how do these trades sound?

Pittsburgh- Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel And 21st overall

Florida- Vincent Trochek, Johnathan Huberdeau ( 92 points this season ), Alexi Hepponemi and 13th overall

Pittsburgh- gets a young star coming off a 92 point season at a great contract while he's probably not as good as the two players Pittsburgh is giving he's still a very good player. Trochek is a solid 2C coming of a week season. He will likely bounce back. Hepponemi is a solid forward prospect with nice potential. The also move up 8 spots.

Florida- Malkin gives the Panthers a crazy 1-2 punch of Barkov and Malkin. Kessel is also a great player and can replace Huberdeau with ease. This makes the Panthers a much better team and opens a Stanley cup window.

Is Florida giving up to much?

07 May 2019 23:23:22
I think Florida gives up too much, if they’re trading for a guy like Kessel and Malkin it’s be to add to their offence not trade for them and give up young top 6 forwards and high draft picks. I think they’d be trying to get more secondary scoring and if they trade away huberdeau and Trochek they’re not any further ahead then they are now. Yes Kessel and Malkin are better now but for how much longer will that be the case. They should hold off see if they can sign Panarin and goalie Bob and keep their forward core in tact. They should trying to add without taking away top 6 roster players.

08 May 2019 01:55:33
No way Florida is trading huberdeau I think unless they get something crazy. he's a great player on a really good contract. Bit I'd say Florida is giving up to much. No incentive to get older and much more salary. Plus rumours that Florida is making a run at panarin and bob.

08 May 2019 04:51:37
Florida gets more expensive and older. They’ll be upgrading talent for what 2 years? Not to mention they trade the better pick and a prospect. No from them. Especially if they plan to spend big money in free agency.

08 May 2019 08:17:50
I like it tbh but i think florida may say no depending on how much they value Huberdeau which my guess is alot.

08 May 2019 13:40:22
Yah my 1st impression was Florida May be giving to much maybe replace Huberdeau with someone else?

08 May 2019 17:20:19
Florida has a strong offense and desperately needs defense so I don't think this trade address' their needs for a top pairing defense man.

08 May 2019 18:43:33
Yes, they are malkin is old if he was 27 or under it would be much closer.

08 May 2019 18:46:01
Yes, FLA is giving too much esp considering the age of the Pens players.

29 Apr 2019 16:34:39
EDM : Jesse Puljujärvi, Oscar Klefbom, Milan Lucic & 8th Overall Selection
PIT : Phil Kessel & Olli Maatta
[ Pittsburgh sheds cap space and adds a top 4 defencemen who could slot beside Letang, toughness, B+ prospect & 1st round pick in this years draft. Edmonton adds a top 6 winger, a top 6 defencemen & sheds a contract ]

EDM : Ryan Nugent-Hopkins & Andrej Sekera
ANA : Josh Manson, Ondrej Kase
[ Anaheim adds more scoring and a veteran top 6 defencemen, while Edmonton adds a top 6 rhd and top 6 winger ]

EDM : Kris Russell, Matt Benning & 2nd Rd Pick
OTT : Chris Tierney
[ Oilers shed cap and add a bottom 6 center, while senators add a veteran to their defence, a younger defencemen & a pick ]

FA Signings :
• LW Micheal Ferland (3.25M x 3YR)
• C Mark Letestu (1.25M x 1YR)
• LW Anthony Duclair (1.50M x 2YR)

Projected Lines 2019-20:

Micheal Ferland - Connor McDavid - Phil Kessel
Tyler Benson - Leon Draisaitl - Ondrej Kase
Jujhar Khaira - Chris Tierney - Kailer Yamamoto
Anthony Duclair - Mark Letestu - Zack Kassian

Darnell Nurse - Josh Manson
Olli Maatta - Adam Larsson
Ethan Bear - Evan Bouchard

30 Apr 2019 00:52:04
Imagine the Pens ever taking Lucic. Also Ferland will probably get 6millon from some stupid team like Arizona no way he takes 3. My guess he signs 4 years a 5.25 million.

27 Apr 2019 00:42:43
I'm hearing Malkin on the trade block after playoff run.

Pit : Malkin, Matta, Kessel

Nah : Subban, Turris, Granlund, 2 X 1st round picks

Pittsburgh downgrades a couple older forwards to get a massive upgrade on the back end as well as adding a couple 1sts while Nashville uses a piece of it's crazy blue line to add a major scoring touch needed to go all the way.

Forsberg Malkin arvidsson
Simmonds Johansson Kessel.

29 Apr 2019 01:40:27
This is not a good trade, no. Pittsburgh must not give up two of their best three forwards. Kessel and Malkin is almost 200 points they would lose. Crosby would cry. He would be so very lonely without Malkin.

24 Apr 2019 12:31:26
[ 3 for 1 ]
Toronto Maple Leafs :
RW William Nylander
D Timothy Liljegren
2019 2nd Round Pick
Nashville Predators :
D P.K. Subban

Toronto Maple Leafs :
D Nikita Zaitsev
RW Jeremy Bracco
C Miro Aaltonen
2020 2nd Round Pick

[ 1 for 1 ]
Toronto Maple Leafs :

Pittsburgh Penguins :
2019 6th Round Pick

(Pittsburgh needs defence, Leafs need cap space)

Toronto Maple Leafs Projected Lines 2019-20

Zach Hyman - John Tavares - Mitch Marner
Andreas Johnsson - Auston Matthews - Kasperi Kapanen
Patrick Marleau - Nic Petan - Connor Brown
Tyler Ennis - Frederik Gauthier - Trevor Moore

Morgan Rielly - P.K. Subban
Jake Muzzin - Josh Manson
Travis Dermott - Rasmus Andersson

24 Apr 2019 13:42:44
Kadri might honestly be the 1C in Anaheim Getzlaf is aging give it 2 years at most and he’d be the 1C.

24 Apr 2019 14:25:55
Yes vbb Toronto has the best players in the world but somehow can't beat the Bruins to save their lives.

24 Apr 2019 14:29:00
With PK the Leafs could have four $10 mil per year players so the Leafs would say no.

24 Apr 2019 15:30:11
no way leafs can afford PK's salary.

24 Apr 2019 17:40:06
A. Kadri was injured B. Kessler is a 4th line Center now C. Henrique is another Bozak he’s good but not as good as Kadri. D. Getzlaf is like what? 35 he has a few more solid seasons at most. Which logically implies Kadri will be better sooner rather then later. E. never did I say or imply that the leafs players are always the best if you’ve payed attention I’ve even said Zib isn’t far off Mathews, Marner and Rielly.

Reality is Anaheim is an aging team and while Getzlaf May be better is logical to assume a regression is amidst the horizon. @HABBY.

24 Apr 2019 18:37:07
Nylander elite top 6? Only thing about him that's elite is his salary. Elite players average more than 0.5 points per game. Pitt does need more salary, they're talking about trading one of thier higher paid players for cap relief and schultz is the likey player so doubt that works. And Calgary would not trade andersson for that package at all.

24 Apr 2019 19:17:35
Fair enough VB but that doesn’t mean Kadri would be 1st line center. When Getzlaf regresses Steel or another prospect might me better.

24 Apr 2019 21:07:59
It’s rather unlikely that steel will be as good/ Better then Kadri obviously he’s developing good and it is possible that’s why I said he “ might “ be a 1c in Anaheim.

24 Apr 2019 22:37:00
He might be number 3 there this year too. I will bet you this no team in the league would have Kadri as there number 1 centre unless they were trying to tank.

25 Apr 2019 00:25:55
Well Montreal, Arizona ( imo he’s better than Derek Stephan ) And Ottawa. Don’t even argue Jesper Koteniemi is better because he’s not. He will be but he’s not. Drouin is a winger forced to play C and Danult is not better even tho he had 6 more points Kadri brings more to the game aside from 2 way play he’s a dirty player that gives cheap shots to get into the other teams head. A player that any successful team needs. He’s also a consistent 30 goal guy when given top 6 minutes. Domi is better but I consider him a winger even tho he spent time at Center.

Drouin-Kadri-Domi would be Montreal’s 1st line.

25 Apr 2019 01:58:49
Domi is better. daneult is better and they don't miss with kotkaniemis development just to bring in Kadri so there is no place for Kadri on the habs so your wrong again. Clayton Keller play centre for the coyotes? And also Drouin didn't played centre all season.

25 Apr 2019 02:19:52
Toronto is stuck with Nylander till Dubas is gone.

25 Apr 2019 16:13:34
Kadri is 2x as good as Danault.

25 Apr 2019 18:00:49
No way the flames will trade ras for a cap dump.

25 Apr 2019 18:49:30
Yeah of course he is vbbb. But When the leafs try and trade him this off season you will be singing a different tune.

25 Apr 2019 20:55:41
The leafs won’t try to trade him he is the best defensive forward on the team.

25 Apr 2019 22:36:13
OK that explains why you think he's so great.

25 Apr 2019 22:38:50
Dont think the Leafs have the cap space to acquire Subban.

Kadri will be a tough sell to any team with his history.

24 Apr 2019 04:13:30
Pittsburgh Penguins :
D Olli Maatta
RW Phil Kessel

Calgary Flames :
D Mark Giordano
RW James Neal

This trade is just for fun, who accepts and who declines.

Giordano & Letang pairing would be insane and a Gaudreau-Monahan-Kessel line would be unreal aswell.

Again it is just for fun, just using my imagination, what are your thoughts? :)

24 Apr 2019 05:29:52
Um well Calgary declines. Lol.

24 Apr 2019 11:15:29
how is this fun for Calgary?

25 Apr 2019 22:44:02
Looks like fun for Calgary by getting rid of Neal and getting something for Gio before his value diminishes.

23 Apr 2019 21:43:30
Oilers- 5th round

Penguins- Jarry

Hes mainly played in the AHL and pitt was currently using DeSmith as back up. Not sure if pens want to part with him but I think he can potentially be the back up in edmonton.

Unless oilers choose to get an experienced NHL back up.

23 Apr 2019 22:17:28
I think oil should go for more experienced back up.

24 Apr 2019 01:55:59
Oilers need a starter.

24 Apr 2019 05:30:46
Hahahaha so true a starter 😂.

23 Apr 2019 01:02:41
#1 Trade -

Tampa Bay Lightning :
(C) Anthony Cirelli (ELC)
(2019) 31st Overall Selection
(D) Erik Cernak (ELC)
Winnipeg Jets :
• (D) Jacob Trouba (RFA)

Stats :

- (C) Anthony Cirelli 82GP 19G 20A 39Pts 25+/-
- (RHD) Erik Cernak 58GP 5G 11A 16Pts 25+/-
- (RHD) Jacob Trouba 82GP 8G 42A 50Pts 8+/-

#2 Trade -

Tampa Bay Lightning :
(LW) Alex Killorn (4.45M x 4y)
(LHD) Mikhail Sergachev (ELC)
(RW) Ryan Callahan (5.80M x 1y)
Pittsburgh Penguins :
(RW) Phil Kessel (8M x 3y)

Stats -
- Alex Killorn 82GP 18G 22A 40Pts 22+/-
- Mikhail Sergachev 75GP 6G 26A 32Pts 12+/-
- Ryan Callahan 52GP 7G 10A 17Pts 7+/-

- Phil Kessel 82GP 27G 55A 82Pts -19+/-

Tampa Bay Lightning Projected Lines 2019/20

Ondrej Palat - Steven Stamkos - Nikita Kucherov
Yanni Gourde - Brayden Point - Phil Kessel
Cedric Paquette - Carter Verhaeghe - Mathieu Joseph
Andy Andreoff - Tyler Johnson - J.T. Miller

Victor Hedman - Jacob Trouba
Ryan McDonagh - Callan Foote
Cameron Gaunce - Ben Thomas

- Anton Stralman 4.50M
- Braydon Coburn 3.70M
- Dan Girardi 3M
- Jan Rutta 2.25M
- Adam Erne 800K
- Danick Martel 715K

(Tampa frees up 14,965,000M)


Tampa then has enough to resign Brayden Point, Cedric Paquette & Jacob Trouba.

What do you guys think...

23 Apr 2019 05:38:37
I think they’ll be picking 23rd if I’m not mistaken. Either way not enough for Trouba. Also Pittsburg trade might be close if Callahan wasn’t in it.

23 Apr 2019 13:24:29
Kessels cap hit is 6.8 mil as 1.2 million was retained by Toronto. Not even going to comment on the trades.

23 Apr 2019 14:29:29
Yup, you would need to take out some of the quantity and add a little quality to get into the Trouba game.

23 Apr 2019 14:51:35
If the Jets resign Myers than I see Trouba being traded at the draft, but not for this poor TB package. Trouba will get a better return than this one. Detroit, Philly, Florida, NYR and the Leafs are only 5 teams that would love and need a player like him.

23 Apr 2019 19:12:21
Now way Pittsburg adds 3.25 million in salary, they barely under the cap next year.

23 Apr 2019 19:22:32
This poor TB package? Sorry, but you clearly have seen neither Cirelli nor Cernak play. Both are almost guaranteed to stay, imo, very important contributors and esp important to TB because they are cheap for now. No way TB does that Trouba deal.
PIT deal is bad as well, no way we trade Sergachev.

With a big exodus on D already (Stralman, Coburn, Rutta, etc. ) why would TB trade it's two young, cheap and good D in Cernak and Sergachev? Makes no sense at all.

21 Apr 2019 01:59:42
3 way trade

• (LHD) TJ Brodie

Calgary Flames acquire (RW) Phil Kessel & (RW) Eeli Tolvanen

Pittsburgh Penguins acquire (LHD) TJ Brodie, (RHD) PK Subban

Nashville Predators acquire (C) Mikael Backlund, (RHD) Justin Schultz, (2019) 30th Overall Selection & (2019) 54th Overall Selection

Projected Line Ups :

Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Phil Kessel
Matthew Tkachuk - Sam Bennett - Elias Lindholm
Martin Pospisil - Mark Jankowski - James Neal
Andrew Mangiapane - Derek Ryan - Garnet Hathaway

Mark Giordano - Rasmus Andersson
Hoah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic

21 Apr 2019 05:12:55
Preds get bent over.

21 Apr 2019 10:51:26
How do the preds get " bent over " loool exageration much

21 Apr 2019 15:20:58
Backlund is a 2/ 3 C and on a strong team like the leafs he’d be a 4th line C. Schultz is probably equal to Tolvanen. So a 3rd line C ( Turris And Johasson would both be above him ) imo he holds little value and two non 1st round picks for Elite franchise altering deffensman. It’s closer if you switch Backlund to Mohnahan lol.

19 Apr 2019 05:55:02
I think this might be fair
To Pit- kailer Yamamoto, 2019 1st, 2020 2nd, Milan lucic
To EDM - Phil kessel
No retention, pits sheds 750,000 cap roughly gets a pick In the first round which they don't have and lucic who could protect Crosby etc.
Maybe I'm way off but I think it works

19 Apr 2019 06:11:16
You’re way off lol.

19 Apr 2019 16:12:59
Basically Yamamoto for kessel? Cause the draft picks would be for taking lucic. And pens would be looking for cap space, not taking on an anchor contract. Sorry, not well thought out at all.

19 Apr 2019 21:00:56
Pittsburgh has a 1st round pick?

21 Apr 2019 02:00:16
For Edmonton they are in a rebuild even though they have 2 of the Top forwards in the NHL.
Kessel is not a good move where they are at, I would Trade McDavid to start the rebuild properly, they need a lot and the only way to do that without wasting McDavids years is to Trade McDavid and they would get a ton for him.

19 Apr 2019 05:22:59
Crazy trade:

Pens create more cap space this way (almost 5 million) .
Also, Pens haven’t had any 1st round picks in a few seasons and no 1st round this year. Finally, Pens could use some toughness.

Oilers need a goal scorer and 3 line Centre.

Oilers: Lucic + Yamamoto or Puljujarvi + Bear or Jones + 2019 1st round pick

Pens: Kessel + Bjugstad.

19 Apr 2019 02:17:26
TOR: Nazem Kadri, Connor Brown, 1st or 2nd 2020

PIT: Phil Kessel

Just cause I want maximum chaos and this would light Toronto and Toronto media on fire. Especially with a Toronto lineup of

Johnsson - Matthews - Kapanen
Hyman - Tavares - Marner
Marleau/Moor - Nylander - Kessel
Marleau/Moor - Gauthier - (Marlies or new version of Ennis)


19 Apr 2019 19:43:19
Why? To all of this. Why is Kessel on the third line? How would this work with Toronto's salary? Kessel's contact has a NTC and a NMC clause, why would he want to go back to Toronto were the worst years of his career were?

19 Apr 2019 19:58:32

1. He'd want to go back to Toronto to win 2. He wouldn't have a choice cause I would assume Toronto is not one of the 8 teams on his no-trade list. Kadri and Brown are basically the equivalent of Kessel's salary, and Kessel is a top RW in the league which Toronto would love to have. He's on the third line because Matthews is a scorer and putting two snipers on one line wouldn't work, Nylander is more of a playmaker and would probably work well with Kessel.

19 Apr 2019 21:19:22
Cap space from the leafs POV makes it a no go. Trades will need to be made to replace/ Make space for the following.

-Mitch Marner ( 10+ million )
-Jake Gardiner ( Dermotte takes his spot but someone needs to play on the third pairing )
- 1RD to replace/ resign ( Hanisey )
- Kappanen ( around 5 mil )
-Johanson ( around 4 mil )

According spotrac. com the leafs will have roughly 27 million in cap space so this could be manageable but it’ll be cutting it close.

19 Apr 2019 23:25:27
Vbbb use cap friendly to get your info it's much more accurate.

20 Apr 2019 07:21:39
Cap friendly doesn’t know what players will sign for habby.

20 Apr 2019 14:06:51
Capfriendly only show cap for this season and I wasn’t feeling like doing the calculations myself.

20 Apr 2019 19:54:01
Did you ever look at it? It shows the caps for 7 seasons on my devices. And leafs 17 who said they would show what players will sign for? They are a cap site not a magical wizardry site.

20 Apr 2019 21:30:33
Well maybe it’s different on the computer.

20 Apr 2019 22:33:49
I don’t know what I was thinking habby. I read something backwards. My apologies, I thought maybe you did think cap friendly was magical.

21 Apr 2019 01:35:23
It's the same on iPad too vbb not sure about on phone though.

18 Apr 2019 22:16:06
Nashville: PK Subban And Elli Tolvanen

Pittsburgh: Phil Kessel, Justin Schultz And 1st 2019

Nashville- Gets Kessel whom would debatably be their best forward, a 1st round pick and a replacement for Subban. Subban is apparently unwanted in Nashville and Tolvanen looks like he doesn't fit in their system. This makes Nashville a better team today and possibly in the future.

Pittsburgh- Subban is coming off a bad season but is still a 1D. Defence is currently Pittsburgh's weakness and the addition of Subban improves that. Tolvanen is a replacement for Kessel and could be a huge future addition. Kessel seem to be the piece for to go for a shakeup

I'm wondering if Nashville would be more inclined to make a deal to free up some cap room with this trade they take back slightly more I think.

19 Apr 2019 06:12:45
I see zero reason why Nashville would make that pick. Zero.

19 Apr 2019 06:12:51
That trade *.

19 Apr 2019 21:03:21
For one Justin Schultz is looking like a stud and could replace what Subban brings. They dump Subban who they don’t want. And they get a star forward who is better then Forsburg currently imo.

19 Apr 2019 21:03:56
But Habby you make a extremely valid point.

A few trades and changes to the oilers that might help! Oilers need to clear cap space.

Oilers: puljujarvi + Lucic (possibly add 3rd round pick or B Prospect)
Sens: Pageau (Sens need to get to the cap + puljujarvi is a good prospect for a rebuilding team. Also, Sens can retain 50% of Lucic’s salary and trade him to a team that needs toughness like Pitts or Canes or other team that need a defender against Tom Wilson)

Oilers: Benning
Leafs: Brown

Oilers: 1st Rd + Russel
Habs: 1st Rd + Shaw (Shaw has one extra season signed to + Oilers 1st is higher most likely)

Oilers: 1st from Habs + Bear
Avs: Barrie

Resign: Chaison 2m x 2 yrs

Sign Free Agent: Carr or Pirri (Vegas)
Mezark or Nilsson

Line Up:
Drai (8.5) - McDavid (12.5) - Kassian (2)
Brown (2) - RNH (6) - Chaison (2)
Ganger (3) - Pageau (3) - Shaw (3)
Khaira (1) - Brodziak (1) - Carr (2)
Cave (700) - Currie (700)

Klefbom (4) - Larson (4)
Nurse (3) - Barrie (5.5)
Sekera (5.5) - Jones (650)
Gravel (700)

Koskinen (4.5)
Mazerk (2)

Shy of $80 m which leaves 3 m room for a trade during season if needed.

Some players here can play up and down the lineup depending on who is hot or not.

Every trade is good except the colorado one. Colorado isn't in rebuild mode and if they were Barrie would get more

02 Apr 2019 14:17:26
Tbh it really depends on how high EDM 1st is for MTL to do that trade as Shaw has rebounded and is fitting in nicely and is around a pace of 60 points if he played the whole season. Yes I agree that’s not what’s expected from him but is it unreasonable to expect 40? Plus he plays with grit and heart. While Russel is basically another Alzner. And habs have enough of those 5-7 D don’t need one for 4 mil per year.

02 Apr 2019 15:19:25
Who is Mazerk? Is that supposed to be Mrazek?

02 Apr 2019 16:45:39
Not a chance Oil move back in the 1st to go from Russell to Shaw.

02 Apr 2019 17:39:19
Oilers are not moving their 2019 1st.

02 Apr 2019 18:42:11
Leafs said no to Brown for Benning + Khaira, so Benning alone does not get Brown, no. Is no good trade.

Why Oiler’s want Barrie? He’s free agent, yes? We must needs just players to stay. No rentals. Can we afford to sign Barrie next year? I dong think so.

02 Apr 2019 21:44:48
I have a hard time believing the Leafs turned down Benning and Khaira for Brown. Those are two depth guys for the Oilers that actually have value IMO. There both young, physical and inexpensive.

02 Apr 2019 22:05:19
Bro there is no way Leafs turned down both Khaira and Benning. The actual offer was Brown for Benning, but Toronto was interested in Khaira instead. As per TSN twitter.

03 Apr 2019 16:24:39
how does that help the oilers you still got bottom 6 players playing on the 2nd line with rnh.

04 Apr 2019 03:54:25
I did not make this up, no. I am not so smart to make this up. Benning plus Khaira or Kassian. Toronto says no. I read it several times. LWOH.

05 Apr 2019 16:54:49
I just don’t think there’s anyway they’d say no to Benning and Kassian. Kassian would be awesome for the leafs. Love him as a player.

05 Apr 2019 22:20:44

They probably would say no, not bc value, but because of cap. If we’re trading Brown, we want next to no salary coming back, not more, even if the value is good.

Toronto Acquires:
Jason Pominville [5.60 Million x 1 Year]

Buffalo Acquires:
Gabriel Gagne [700K x 1 Year]
2019 3rd Round Pick
Conditional 2020 5th Round Pick **Becomes a 2020 4th if Toronto advances past Round1.

Buffalo is currently 6 points back of Carolina/ Pittsburgh, and has struggled as of late. Pominville hasn't been as good as he was in the beginning of the season, so Buffalo could be looking at moving him. If Hagelin [with retention] brings back a 3rd and a 5th, Pominville with none should bring back a 3rd and a 5th as well. For Toronto, they acquire a bottom six vet who could prove handy in the playoffs against tougher teams like Boston.

25 Feb 2019 00:12:05
I think Toronto could put that money to better use.
