Edmonton To Buffalo:
G Mikko Koskinen @4.5mil/UFA2022
D Slater Koekkoek @925k/UFA2023
RW Tyler Tullio ELC/RFA2024
RD Philip Kemp ELC/RFA2023
LW Shane Lachance Signing Rights
TOTAL: 5.425 million

Buffalo To Dallas:
G Mikko Koskinen @2.25mil/UFA2022 (BUF retains 50% = 2.25mil)
RD/RW Mark Pysyk @750k/UFA2022
(BUF retains 150k)
LD/RD Slater Koekkoek @925k/UFA2023
TOTAL: 3 million (2.4mil retained)

Dallas To Edmonton:
G Braden Holtby @2mil/UFA2022
LD/RD Alexej Sekera @1.5mil/UFA2022
RD/RW Mark Pysyk @750k/UFA2022
TOTAL: 4.25 million

Dallas To Buffalo:
G Anton Khudobin @3.33/UFA2023
RD Alex Petrovic @750k/UFA2022
C/RW Joel L'Esperance ELC/RFA2022
RD Joseph Cecconi ELC/RFA2022
Total: 3.33 million

In the end, Buffalo gets a much needed upgrade in net with Anton Khudobin for 2 years + a Left Shot Prospect + 4 East Coast Right Shot Prospects (which they are currently lacking) from Dallas & Edmonton in exchange for $3.3million and retaining $2.4million for just 1 year, with RD Alex Petrovic available to bring up for only $750k.

Edmonton improves their Goaltending with playoff experienced Holtby (who is just okay in Dallas) and adds additional Veteran LD/RD Insurance in Sekera + Edmonton Born/Former Oil King Champion = Mark Pysyk. Edmonton will also save $1.175 million in Cap Space with these moves as well.

Dallas unloads Khubodin and saves a whopping $3.655 million in Cap Space without changing the team much, while still getting Mikko Koskinen at 2.25mil to replace Holtby until Bishop is healthy & ready and just in case Oettinger falters + Slater Koekkoek as additional defensive depth Insurance until 2023 as well.

Devils Trade
4th Round Pick 2022*

Leafs Trade
Ho-Sang (AHL)
1st Round Pick 2022

*NJ will choose which one of their three 4th Round Picks will be traded to Toronto.

A kind of Trade rebuilding Teams like NJ do and Contenders do like The Leafs.

Thoughts ?

Ho Sang isn’t being traded, the only reason he’s on an AHL-only deal is because Toronto doesn’t want to run the risk of waiving him because they want him in the AHL and don’t have space on the NHL roster. There’s mutual understanding between his camp and the Leafs, he isn’t going anywhere otherwise he would’ve signed an NHL guaranteed deal with some other team - he believes in Torontos system and Toronto believes in him. Besides, you can’t trade AHL contracts in NHL deals.

Second off, that still seems low for Zacha. Ritchie will probably get traded and won’t cost the Leafs anything to dump because as I’ve said before, NHL GMs are idiots who think useless guys like Ritchie have value, but in a trade package, his value is almost just being a contract filler, not positive/ negative despite the cap hit. Dermotts an eh 6th dman, probably valued decently but with Subban/ Hamilton/ Smith/ Graves/ Severson/ Seig, Dermott isn’t really needed in Jersey. He’s just jn the same situation as in Toronto. The 1st is nice, but to get a guy like Zacha, it’d probably cost a 1st + a prospect, rather than two guys Jersey has minimal use for.

I’d like to see HoSang given a chance before he’s traded.

Tyler Toffoli

Conditional 5th

Habs eat 2mil

What do y'all think?

The Habs 2021 first round pick is Logan Mailloux.

04 Dec 2021 21:57:26
Sorry that should be the Leafs 2022 1st.

Agree1 Disagree2

05 Dec 2021 13:25:26
If you want Habs to eat 2 mill then you will need to give up more. With Toffoli’s current contract a team will pay more than a 4th liner and a first.

Leaf fans think the rest of the league is only there to do them favors.

Can you maybe not lump us all together Mo? The odd time I make a proposal, I get bashed from leaf fans.

You do seem to be an exception to the rule.

Yikes not even close. Toffoli for a 1ST, 5TH and a Bottom 6 Forward while they eat 2mil? Absolutely not from Montreal.

Minnesota Trades

Toronto Trades
1st Round Pick 2022

Both Teams Top Teams.
Minny needs more depth upfront.
Leafs need a Top LW.
Toronto needs Cap Space.

Thought ?

Why would Minnesota change what they have going for them? I thought they were the top scoring team in the league?

Agree2 Disagree3

05 Dec 2021 15:05:56
Yes Minnesota is a top team.

That's why they won't trade a good player away for another team's first round pick and unwanted trash. Rebuilding teams make deals like that, not top teams.

To Calgary:
LW/RW-Tyler Toffoli @4.25/UFA2024
LD-Ben Chiarot @ 3.5/UFA2022
LW/C-M.Perreault @950k/UFA2022
2022-3nd Round Pick-MTL
TOTAL: 8.7 million

To Montreal:
C-Sean Monahan @5.5/UFA2024 (with CGY retaining 875k)
LD-Jusso Valimaki @1.55/RFA2023
RW-Tyler Pitlick @1.75/UFA2022
2022-1st Round Pick-CGY
2022-2nd Round Pick-FLA
2023-3rd Round Pick-CGY
TOTAL: 8.8 million

Line2: Mangiapane-Dube-Toffoli
Line3: M.Perrault-Backlund-Coleman

Montreal is need of a young puck moving LD now = Valimaki and will need replacement players for Perrault and Toffoli. I'm okay to send them a few picks, but they need to take Monahan and Pitlick (who are younger than Toffoli and Perreault) the other way to make the $$$ work. I just don't know if Pitlick is better to have or Perrault.

Zadorov would become expendable based on his salary, so move him for a 3rd Round Pick, which frees up an additional $3.75mil to pursue Brandon Tanev.

Calgary should be ALL-IN for this year's Cup run IMO.

Believable2 Unbelievable5

Make it Anderson instead of Toffoli and no retention on Monahan and I'd like it more.

Even then I think I'd rather give up a prospect like Gawdin, Pelletier, Francis or Poirier rather than all those picks, especially the first.

Agree2 Disagree1

05 Dec 2021 16:47:48
I like Toffoli better myself. I get Anderson is younger with a longer contract, which would be similar $$$ if there were no retention on Monahan, but Toffoli fits that right shot sniper role more and isn’t injured as often, so I feel he could be a greater impact player.

Unless it’s a top 7 pick, Flames don’t typically do well with their 1st round picks and I was trying to avoid the “unwanted trash” comments ; ), so I went with picks.

I’m okay to part with Valimaki and Gawdin, but I’m liking how Pelletier and Poirier are playing, so I’m hesitant to give up those prospects and Montreal already has Kaidan Guhle and Arber Xhekaj (who I actually originally wanted coming back in this trade), so I’m not sure if they would want/ need Poirier.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2021 21:52:46
Pelletier is a very good prospect but he's another left shot LW. There's no room for him in the top 6 and he's not big enough to be a bottom 6 grinder. Poirier is an offensive defenseman, Flames have plenty of those, both on the big team and on the farm.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2021 21:54:47
Oh and I prefer Anderson because he's big, fast and plays a physical game. He isn't afraid to drop the gloves with anyone either. There was no fear in his eyes when he fought Looch, if anything he enjoyed the test.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2021 20:02:18
To Calgary Flames :
W - Tyler Toffoli ( 4.25 @ 3 UFA )

To Montreal Canadiens :
2022 - First-Round Selection ( CGY )
W - Jakob Pelletier ( ELC )
D - Jeremie Poirier ( ELC )

Highly likely Monahan gets moved, so this deal would only work if that were to happen so don’t worry about the trade salary wise.

Pelletier, 17Pts in 15GP (AHL) plays a similar style to Brendan Gallagher

Poirier, 22Pts in 23GP (QMJHL) plays a similar style and is usually compared to PK Subban

Both young French prospects that I think Montreal would jump at depending on what direction they want to go after hiring new management. Personally I’d want Josh Anderson over Toffoli but his contract is questionable.

Believable5 Unbelievable5

03 Dec 2021 23:21:48
Looks like you beat me to the punch. I’m sitting on a trade proposal for Toffoli and Chiarot, but it includes sending Monahan the other way with Valimaki and a 1st and 2nd Round Picks. I’ll post it now so we can compare.

Agree3 Disagree0

04 Dec 2021 03:07:37
Add Montreal's 2022 3rd round pick coming back.

I'd prefer Anderson too though he's injured right now and expected to be out 2-4 weeks. Upper body injury I hope it's not the shoulder he had surgery on again.

Still maybe something could be worked out based on Anderson for Monahan.

Brock Boeser


Ryan Pulock

Who says no?

NYI definitely.

04 Dec 2021 21:57:48
Why? Explain.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2021 11:09:31
RHD, signed long term and they have more of a need for Pulock than another RW. Dobson and Mayfield are their only RD, meanwhile they have Wahlstrom, Clutterbuck, Bailey and Palmieri on RW. When Pulock’s new contract kicks in he’ll be signed to 6.15 @ 8 UFA with a NTC, so I’m assuming they aren’t looking to move him any time soon.
