1.) 08 Dec 2019 11:20:49
Why would Montreal do this though? Seems like a real overpay. Armia and Lehkonen are both good proven players. Toews is only a second year sophomore.



07 Dec 2019 20:03:33


Mtl gets a solid defensive defensemen and Isles gets more scoring. Tatar is a UFA at the end of the season but I still believe he's more valuable since he's a 55+ point winger that's paid 5 million for this season.


1.) 07 Dec 2019 21:36:05
Tatar has a full year after this one.

2.) 07 Dec 2019 21:44:25
I did not know that. So does that makes the trade better or worse Habby?

3.) 08 Dec 2019 00:19:57
Trotz is a big fan of Toews. You really think Islanders would trade him for a rental? He’s a left shot on a team full of right shots.

4.) 08 Dec 2019 02:08:36
I'd rather keep Tatar.

5.) 08 Dec 2019 04:53:03

Mtl: Weber



1.) 01 Dec 2019 23:34:09
You’re posting some terrible trades the last few days, are you doing ok?

2.) 02 Dec 2019 11:55:18
sure. but why?

3.) 02 Dec 2019 15:21:31
Vancouver says no way to this. Weber has half the time left before they are out from his bad contract. They aren’t going to take a chance at ending up with another boat anchor contract.

Montreal says no way to this as well. Gaudette is 23 and still hasn’t played a full season. Off to a good start, but still too unproven. Virtanen is turning out ok. Bust just ok. And Eriksson is a huge cap dump they won’t want. Montreal gets nothing useful to replace their captain.



01 Dec 2019 15:34:57



EDM: Pulijujarvi,Benson

Mtl:Weber(10% retain)



1.) 01 Dec 2019 16:30:38
Can you please just stop. Canucks can’t afford Tatar and we don’t need Chiarot. And neither of them have anywhere close to Podkolzin’s value.

2.) 01 Dec 2019 17:18:54
Lol. Edm can’t add Petry with less money going out. Come on at least make it somewhat realistic.

3.) 01 Dec 2019 17:19:22
Who’s all playing D for Montreal now. Wow.

4.) 01 Dec 2019 19:27:18
We put all rookies and tank for Lafreniere or Byfield. Mtl tries to beat Ottawa.

5.) 01 Dec 2019 23:02:24
That's just a dumb idea. tank for the draft. I still think last place team should automattic get 3rd over all. might take tanking outta the game.

6.) 01 Dec 2019 23:35:19
They are or have changed the % for the lottery haven’t they? Just to discourage tanking.

7.) 02 Dec 2019 02:06:20
The last couple years teams have been jumping like 10 spots to get into the top 3. I’d say it’s been fairly good. Last place teams know they could easily not get 1st or 2nd pick now.

8.) 02 Dec 2019 03:50:22
It's better forsure

However, if you finish last. No chance at first. notta! Maybe even 5th at best.? Make teams try at the end. people who still pay 4 or 500 a ticket well in advance will still see a competitive team at least.

9.) 02 Dec 2019 21:15:11
Yeah but the crappiest team in the league would always remain the crappiest team Sosa, it wouldn't be a fair rule at all imo.



01 Dec 2019 01:11:46



1.) 02 Dec 2019 01:15:42
Dallas has Bishop, who is arguably a better goalie than Price. Further to that they have Oettinger and Point. They don’t want Price and that contract of his. Even though the price is right for Price, Dallas isn’t your team.

2.) 02 Dec 2019 21:16:16
Very well put hockeyfan.

New Jersey:Hall(resigned @ 9 million for 8 years)


1.) 19 Nov 2019 15:23:29
I don't think Hall would sign that low. And MTL shouldn't try building teams around wingers anymore. We need to focus on securing a 1C and 1LD.

2.) 19 Nov 2019 16:50:46
Ya, Turkey. I think he's going to be around 10.5 to 11.5. he's good now at 28, but I would hate to be paying a declining player ( most do in there 30's) that amount of money at age 35, 36.
I like Hall. alot, I just don't see it as a good fit though., only due to contract. of course he'd be great to have on any team.
Also, I think NJ would want a lot more than Poehling and Romanov. They did well with Gionta years ago, so maybe another small guy like Caufield would be a starting point. Add either Drouin or Domi plus a D prospect, and that's what I see as the price. to much IMO.

3.) 19 Nov 2019 17:43:00
I think there’s a really good chance Hall comes back to Edm. Rumor was that he told his agent last week that he’s not re-signing with NJD and that Edm was top on his list. And I think if he was to sign in Edm as a UFA it would be a bit of a discount at under $10M. Maybe even $7.5-8.5M. I just have a gut feeling he really wants to come back.
If I was him I would be signing in Edm or COL tho. And I would lean to Col just because the lack of media spotlight there. But I actually think Hall doesn’t mind all that.
And I’ve always been a Hall hater. Always. But would welcome the hockey player back.

4.) 19 Nov 2019 18:45:45
Yupp, do you think its wise for Oilers to invest all that money in Hall? I'm not sure he takes that much of a discount. maybe 9.5 to 10? I'd like to see Edmonton focus on upgrading the Goalie situation and more depth. you have the 2 most dynamic forwards in the game. now I think it's time to surround them with more balance on all ends of the ice.

5.) 19 Nov 2019 18:48:18
I don’t think there’s much of a chance Hall comes back to Edmonton. He left on bad terms so I’d guess they wouldn’t be at the top of the list. If I was a player I don’t know if I’d see Edmonton as a team that’s going to be really good soon. But I think the fact he’d probably have career years playing with the Oils top 6 would help get him back.

6.) 19 Nov 2019 23:36:51
Hall might finish the season/ playoffs in Edm, but I don’t see them signing him long-term afterward. Don’t think Edm could afford it cap-wise.

7.) 20 Nov 2019 15:55:46
I don’t think it would be smart for them to give up what they’d have to for a rental and I don’t think they would. I think they could probably make some moves to squeeze him in cap wise though. Russell would / should need to be gone. Manning and Gagner UFA’s.

8.) 20 Nov 2019 16:14:17
Sosa I think if he was to sign here it’s known it would have to be a discount. And I don’t even think he’s worth anywhere near $10M myself. He would be a great 2LW fit with his buddy Nuge. I’m not worried about goaltending at all right now. Koskinen is 8-1-1, Smith is solid too with a good winning record as well. Koskinen was also 25-21 last year on a garbage team. Winning record on a garbage team is pretty alright.
I actually think Hall feels like he has unfinished business in Edm, sees all the excitement right now with Mcdavid and Drai, the solid D prospects coming up. The trade was how many years ago, and a totally different management group. I think he’s going to get offers of $10M+ but I think he wants playoff hockey more than money and for some reason I think he would want to come back to Edm. Not saying he is, just simply saying it’s not crazy to think it’s possible. And it’s known he would have to take somewhat of a pay cut.
I’m just saying it’s not crazy to think it’s possible.

9.) 21 Nov 2019 01:45:42
Koskinen has been awesome this year but he also was good for stretches last season and terrible for stretches. One of the reasons the team wasn’t as good last year was because of him. Otherwise it’s not much different. The D should be really good in a couple years though I agree. I don’t know I just have a hard time seeing him come back but it would be awesome if he did.



11 Nov 2019 00:45:59
On a good team, does Anthony Mantha has ppg potential for a whole season?


1.) 11 Nov 2019 04:30:50
Maybe? If he goes to a team to play with their best players, yes. If he goes to try and be secondary scoring on day a second line, Maybe he can be? For example, say he goes to Colorado, does he go to play with McKinnon and Rantanen to move landeskog with Kadri for secondary scoring, or keep the big three and bring Mantha in to play with Kadri in hopes for secondary. Not sure he can be a ppg on second line there, but close. But I think he could be ppg on the top line. MDepends on PP time and linemates also?

Va course could really use a Mantha to play with Horvat on the second line, not sure if he’s a ppg guy with Horvat or not. That’s close. Maybe in Pitts he is with Sid or Gino, they want to go after someone like Mantha or Hall. Edm with Nuge/ Neal, Maybe not quite ppg. But with Drai and Mcdavid, he can get there. I’m not even sure what wing he plays and the fits with what I’ve mentioned, sorry.
Does any of that make sense or am I senile in my thinking.
I like the player. Great top six compliment player to a superstar or two imo.

2.) 11 Nov 2019 05:31:31
I agree with what you're saying Yupp, I think if a team trades for him tho it's to give him like 20+ minutes a game and pp time. Otherwise theyres options to get a second line player that won't cost gms what Mantha would cost to acquire. Mantha is worth a first+ imo.

3.) 11 Nov 2019 11:38:59
Damn Mathews and Tavares don’t even get 20+ minutes of time.

4.) 12 Nov 2019 15:13:20
And yet Mathews had 21+ minutes of TOI in the last 3 games in a row. smh.

5.) 12 Nov 2019 16:59:54
Well you don’t actually think VB knows what he’s always talking about, do you Thunder Turkey?

6.) 13 Nov 2019 12:57:09
I think he has potential on his own team. he's a late bloomer. He is finally reaching his potential. Not sure if he was ever available when he was struggling at the start of his career, but I really wish the Habs coulda grabbed him.
Hey. maybe McCarron will do like Mantha and become a star. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. ok. no . sorry, that was bad.

7.) 13 Nov 2019 17:20:11
His ATOI is less then 20 minuets this season.

8.) 13 Nov 2019 19:12:25
Not sure if I looked that up correct but there’s about 17 forwards averaging 20 min +. And Matthews is next averaging 19:59 per game. Lol.

9.) 14 Nov 2019 20:11:39
Lol I’m correct he’s under 20 min he’s on my fantasy team I should know. It’s 19:55 now.

10.) 15 Nov 2019 19:52:16
You also never said averaged. just stated they "don't even get 20+ minutes". Which is incorrect.



07 Nov 2019 09:27:57
Is Victor Mete a top 15 pick if we did a 2016 NHL Re-Draft?

And is Pulijujarvi and Juolevi still taken in the first round based on potential?


1.) 07 Nov 2019 15:37:42
Right now he's somewhere between 14th and 21st depending on if you value dmen more then forwards. But it's still early for a lot of these guys and that could change a lot yet.

2.) 08 Nov 2019 00:01:57
Maybe even #1 OA. He has the same amount or more ogoals than Tavares, Gaudreau, Benn, seguin, Toews, Kessel, Laine, Courure, Karlsson Hedman and few others.
He’s pretty elite.

3.) 08 Nov 2019 03:06:48
Too early to tell. And yeah based on potential I think they still are. But holy I took a peep at the 2015 draft and that may end up being the first or second deepest draft ever.

4.) 08 Nov 2019 14:36:57
I think he is worth a first round selection. not at the top end though. mid to mid-low would be my guess. I hope he keeps developing!

5.) 08 Nov 2019 19:07:58
I think it's to early to tell yet.

6.) 09 Nov 2019 08:14:45
Id say so tbh

7.) 10 Nov 2019 07:28:02
There's 6 defenceman who have not played as many games as mete from the first round! weather that counts or not he's still a plus/minus 30 in 137 games played. I think if there's a redraft he wouldn't be a montreal canadian. We drafted mikhail sergachev at 9th who even tho he's the same as mete with a +/- 30 he has almost 3 times more points with 80 compared to mete 25. What's kinda funny is sergachev has 173 games played and mete had 137. Also if montreal doesn't trade sergachev mete never would have made the team right away where as sergachev did. It's a tough call, took advantage of his opportunities.



06 Nov 2019 02:12:48
If MTL play like this all year, not only are we making the playoffs but a stanley cup might be in the cards


1.) 06 Nov 2019 13:46:22
Please don't plan the parade though man. Have you forgot the Dallas game that fast?

2.) 06 Nov 2019 17:00:32
It’s going to be awesome! Montreal beats Edmonton in the finals and Weber hands the cup to Price.

3.) 06 Nov 2019 18:38:40
I think he signs similar to Seguin/ Benn. Around 10M.

4.) 06 Nov 2019 19:50:53
Lol. let's see how things are after the New year to see what this team is like.
These days, any of the 16 teams that make the playoffs have a legitimate shot at winning the cup. for Montreal, jus being one of the 8 Eastern teams will be a tough feat to achieve. its possible, however we haven't seen the Leafs best, the Lightnings. ect . Florida and Buffalo are showing that they are starting to live up to all their promises. add in the Briuns. that's jus one division., going to be tough.

5.) 07 Nov 2019 04:06:56
We made Boston look like the Ottawa Senators. I'm saying IF and that's a big If they keep playing like that, this is Stanley Cup potential 100%.

6.) 07 Nov 2019 10:00:27
On paper the team is mediocre. I don’t think they can beat the Leafs, Washington, Tampa or Boston in a best of 7 series.

7.) 07 Nov 2019 11:37:26
I think the Habs could heat the Leafs in a playoff series right now. For sure they could.

8.) 07 Nov 2019 21:26:19
Leafs are good on paper but just aren't clicking on the ice. Habs are clicking on the ice but are not that great on paper, lol.

9.) 07 Nov 2019 22:10:54
Paper means nothing. Ya talent is great and all but heart beats talent any day of the week, and MTL is the team with the most heart in all the NHL and that's not even debatable.

10.) 08 Nov 2019 00:03:53
The Canadians play with a lot more heart than the Leafs that’s for sure. More playing for the team than the individual. The Habs could best the Leafs in a playoff series for sure right now, very possible. It’a lot closer than people might think.

11.) 08 Nov 2019 11:01:32
If heart wins hockey games then why is McDavid considered better then Trevor Moore and Brenden Gallegar. Heart can only take you so far sure they have an elite goalie but their offence wouldn’t stack up against the leafs.

12.) 08 Nov 2019 15:05:13
Haven’t the Habs beat the Leafs both times they’ve played each other this season? Pretty good indication that they very well could beat the Leafs in a playoff series.

13.) 08 Nov 2019 19:50:46
Offense doesn’t win you playoff series or championships, you should know this first hand VB. And you’re Mcdavid, moore, Gally statement is so laughable. Very bad comparison to get your point across. And with the way Freddy is playing I would be worried. Last I seen a. Few days ago he isn’t even in the top 25 for either the top two goalie stats. Not sure you can win playoff series with just offensive 8-5 games man. Good luck with that. Hopefully it turns around for ya.

14.) 10 Nov 2019 07:39:03
Montreal has more heart than toronto! Toronto has more skill but let themselves get pushed around. Who know maybe throughout the year they'll show there depth but as of right now, Montreal beats Toronto in 7... In april may be a different story if montreal can't fix there defence/pk.

15.) 10 Nov 2019 12:34:59
Leafs beat Bruins every game last season ( maybe the season before last ) and still lost in playoffs.



01 Nov 2019 04:07:41
Is MTL a cup contenders this year?


1.) 01 Nov 2019 14:44:58
Anything can happen with a hot goalie and Price is one of the best. They play with heart which is more than I can say about the leafs. I think Montreal should be going all in. Not sure who they target but another big name or 2 would definitely help solidify their team. From what you guys say, the cupboards are stocked with prospects. I’m sure they could go all in and not sacrifice the future.

2.) 01 Nov 2019 16:51:22
Definitely not cup contenders. I'm not even sure if they will make the playoffs this year.

3.) 01 Nov 2019 21:40:31
I'm with Turkey on this.
It's going to be a battle to just get into the playoffs.
If they get in, like Leafs17 said. anything can happen.

4.) 02 Nov 2019 01:18:45
Playoff contender*.
There’s a difference.
I think Bergavin still wants to and will do something big this season of in the off season. He is the cap space for it doesn’t he?
Like trying for Aho, I think they give Hall a nice offer if he goes to free agency or they are in a playoff hunt and NJ isn’t, they make an offer for him. Or someone else.
MB will improve this team tho.

LA laughs and gangs up. Kyrou has 3 points in 18 NHL games, not sure how that is "looking very good". He might become a fourth liner in the NHL one day but Toffoli is already a top 6 player.

Byram is not looking like a #1 defensemen, more like a solid top4. KK is looking like a 70 point center once he is in his prime.
