Hearing something along the lines of:


Seth Jones
Colin Wilson


Ryan Johansen
Scott Hartnell

Seems like a lot from Nashville to me.


1.) 06 Jan 2016 22:19:15
swap Jones with Ellis, and then Nashville gives up a pick as well. I don't think they're parting with Josi, Weber or Jones.

2.) 06 Jan 2016 22:39:12
I like it nash needs a #1 center they are strong on defence so seems logical.

3.) 06 Jan 2016 23:35:37
Where did you hear it from? Lol.

4.) 06 Jan 2016 23:38:12
Jones for Johanson done deal.

5.) 07 Jan 2016 03:41:00
Take out the other two and Johansen for Jones should be a done deal.

What would it take for the bolts to pry James Wisnewski out of Columbus? He's signed for 2 seasons after this one and seems like more the type of player Stevie Y would go for. Reports are Columbus is shopping him ahead of the deadline. Would a deal centered around Connolly and a first work? Add pieces a bit but those as the main ones. Maybe Connolly Sustr 1st 2015 3rd 2016?


1.) I see so far it's pretty split. Will someone tell me either why it's unbelievable or give me an idea of what it would take?

2.) 24 Feb 2015 18:33:12
Well sorry Jared, I almost always agree with you, but I really think you'd screw our own team with that.
1. Wisniewski is more of an offensive minded, puck-moving defenseman, not really what we need IMO. I think we need a physical stay at home guy.
2. I think that's a vast overpayment, tbh. Connolly, Sustr, 1st and 3rd? Wow!

3.) I just don't see Sustr/Connolly having opportunity to have a large impact on the team and I'm likely oversold on Wisnewski. But the way the power play has been and the need for a right handed d I think he fits. May be giving up to much.

4.) 25 Feb 2015 11:59:41
PP definitely needs work.
And well, even if they don't have the best opportunities here in Tampa (yet), no need to sell them below value IMO.

I’m just going to post my 2 cents on this Frost thing because people are freaking out to completely unreasonable proportions on here. Frost is a good prospect, trading him plus for a 3C doesn’t make a lot of sense. He’s not a guaranteed #1 but with top 6 potential that means he has a chance. That’s a higher grading than Point ever got, and Point had a similar development path. It’s possible to be a 1C without playing in the NHL right after the draft, but it is more unlikely. Although I feel it’s slightly more likely for smaller players as teams are more patient with them hoping they grow some more.


1.) 01 Oct 2019 13:18:34
. who?

2.) 03 Oct 2019 06:17:48
Ya Tank as well i bet Sosa.
Look in the main page a bunch down. He admits he was colt basically when I called him out about the Lehtera thing. Cries that we didn’t say he was right about Parayko. Lol. He’s a fool. Still the crazy biased blues homer. Came back under than name of a rival. What an idiot. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🍿🍻.

3.) 03 Oct 2019 16:30:11
I think this was meant for up one thread Sosa. Lol. Whoops.

Only posting this because there are so many Laine trades going on. Jets will HAVE to take back a decently paid vet in a deal, very few teams could afford the contract Laine wants without shipping out money. If Jets can’t come to terms with Laine and need to move him, if they don’t take back a contract they’ll get severely low balled. You are also not going to get back another Laine in the deal +. It’s likely a mix of useful vets and high potential but not NHL proven players. Laine has a great ceiling as a pure goal scorer but has shown if he isn’t scoring he isn’t doing anything else. It’s a hard sell to me to put him in the same tier as Marner, Point, Rantanen, Aho just looking at this years RFA class.


1.) 24 Sep 2019 02:32:26
I’m sure about the other points you mentioned but as we live in a salary cap world, taking back contracts is pretty much a guarantee for Laine. Especially if his ask is still around 7-9 million. Not many teams have the space to take that straight up.



23 Sep 2019 17:12:36
Point signs for 3x6.75. What do people think about this? Lines up pretty well with the bridge deals to McAvoy and Werenski in my opinion. I was thinking a 3 year bride would be around 6.5-7 so works for me.


1.) 23 Sep 2019 18:02:51
I think that is a great deal! MB should have tried to OS point instead of Aho and might have got it done - I'm guessing he probably put forward a proposal and Point didn't sign and wanted to stay in TB.
Good signing and I bet he cashes in after this one.

2.) 23 Sep 2019 18:43:03
Talk was Bergevin approached Point before Aho and Point turned him away, saying he didn’t want to sign an offer sheet.



11 Dec 2018 12:30:06
I think Stamkos saw Rambos post about having to trade Sergy for Dzingel to get him going (even though he had 26 points in 30 games) . 7 points (5 goals) in 2 games since that post.


1.) 11 Dec 2018 13:47:07
I’ve heard he scours this site lol.



08 Dec 2018 13:47:13
Just to clarify a Habby post, Tampa has never banned opposing fans from wearing gear in the stadium. There is a premium section which is like 5% of the stadium where it’s banned. They aren’t the first or only team to do it, I believe Pens even did it last year, but Tampa was the only one that the media has made a big deal about probably because of how often they play original 6 teams in the playoffs. It’s actually not that uncommon in the NHL to have a small section like that.


1.) 08 Dec 2018 16:50:17
Yeah, it’s in 2 luxury seat areas. Right by the glass so that probably helps the image on tv too. Friend of mine was in Colorado on business a week or so ago and went to an Avs game. They have the same ‘Lexus Lounge’ as in Tampa and same rules applied. He said access to the suite was like $300, all food and drink included before, during and for an hour after the game but no opposing jerseys allowed. I’ve sat in the ‘Ford FanDeck’ in Toronto a few times and no opposing jerseys or gear allowed in their either, and those aren’t luxury seats by any means, just so much of the ACC, or scoriabank arena now is corporatebthat it’s an area for the true fan to enjoy.

2.) 08 Dec 2018 21:03:44
Yeah ok believe that if you want. What about the fact they also restricted ticket sales to only those with a florida address? Sort of backfired against the habs though when they realized how many hab fans actually live in florida lol. You are right they are not the only ones who have done something similar to this but they are in that group of teams that sometimes have just as many opposing team fans at their games as their own fans. Which is what we were talking about in the first place.

3.) 08 Dec 2018 21:36:23
Yeah. Lots of teams do the local ticket sales only. Nashville even did that for the playoffs vs Chicago.

4.) 09 Dec 2018 00:16:49
Ya Habby, Tampa hasn’t done anything that other teams haven’t, just stop trying to make it like they are doing outrageous stuff unheard of things, nothing they do is uncommon outside the original 6. Tampa doesn’t have nearly as many problems with opposing fans as you seem to think, they obviously have some it’s the nature of being a winter travel destination and having snowbirds.

I don’t really blame people for making back their season ticket costs selling 5 games a year to Hab and leaf fans, and they’re just at the point where the first generation of people who grew up cheering for the team are buying tickets and raising families. The number of jersey switchers is decreasing which to me is the big thing.

5.) 09 Dec 2018 00:17:46
Yes jim, that's another place that shouldn't have a team. Give them 3 or 4 straight years of sucking and and see what happens. tampas avg attendance went down close to 5000 a game a few years back when they had 2 bad years in a row. I bet they weren't selling tickets to just locals then. Non local fans kept them going in those years.

6.) 09 Dec 2018 01:43:01
It's more then just original 6 teams that don't have to do this jbs. It's only those teams with a fragile fan base that have to do things like this.

7.) 09 Dec 2018 08:15:17
Habby what you're saying is beyond ridiculous.
You are aware that we currently are at ~165 sellout in a row? And don't tell that's because of opposing teams fans, because that certainly wouldn't help fill the arena when we're playing the Islanders, Coyotes, Sharks or whatever else's teams fans certainly don't come to TB for a game.
We've build a big fan base during the last decade and while - thanks to the superb roster management by Yzerman - it's unlikely that we'll suck any time soon, I am willing to take any bet that our avg attendance wouldn't drop by 5000 or anything close to that again.

And as jbs said, the jersey policies we have during the playoffs is something most teams do.

Still thinking that hockey doesn't belong in TB (or in the South) in general just proves that you're an out-dated fan. Have fun watching the Habs battle some other Original 6 team like the Wings or Rangers for 26th place in the standings while discussing players +/ - stats and complaining how 'soft' hockey has gotten. This is 100% you lol.

8.) 09 Dec 2018 14:30:23
And before any other tampa fan gets their panties in a knot over this the post was not created to put down what tampa is doing it was to express wAys that buffalo could control the amount of sabre fans in attendence that's all, no big deal no need to get so defensive over something that there is nothing wrong with or that a lot of other teams does. is it?

9.) 09 Dec 2018 14:44:59
Ok triplets first off tampa has built a decent fan base and I would keep the team there. Florida on the other hand I would move as I don't think florida/ tampa has a big enough fan base to support two teams. That being said If you don't think your fan base is at least slightly fragile your kidding yourself. Of course your filling the stadium now with a 1st place team but I'll check back after a few down years and show you the stats again. Again Tampa in general has still been ok with regards to attendence and deserve to keep the team so you don't have to accuse me of being against teams from down south. but yes hockey is too soft for my liking and eventhough +_ doesn't tell us everything about a player it's still a useful stat sometimes.

10.) 09 Dec 2018 14:52:17
Habby I’ve literally pointed out teams like Nashville and Pitt do it, Jim said Toronto has the same jersey rules. Preds did the ticket restriction in the regular season. And fans of North teams getting tickets by having a Florida shipping address isn’t some gotcha moment, you really think teams in Florida are unaware of snowbirds? The hockey doesn’t belong in the south is an old, overused rhetoric by people who have never experienced or care to learn about the teams that are successful.

Since ESPN started tracking capacity in 05-06 Tampa has been outside top of 10 in attendance % 4 times, all at the beginning of that period. The attendance increase has more to do with the owner than winning as they have had 3 top 10 picks in that time. They also include standing room only in their capacity so unlike Chicago and Montreal they can’t go over 100%. Just because a team isn’t in a place as cold as yours is doesn’t mean they’re struggling, and just because they are in a place that’s cold doesn’t mean they are successful, but being in.

11.) 10 Dec 2018 00:44:14
Florida panthers ain't struggling? i'm not sure what your getting at but I think any fool could see they are. the difference with the leafs doing something similar is they choose to do it they don't have to cause there season ticket holders don't want to be sat by opposing team fans. but your right tampa probably doesn't have to do it now but a few years ago they did. And the 2 seasons I was talking about they were for sure outside the top 10 in attendence.

12.) 10 Dec 2018 18:42:56
It's amazing how jbs is arguing with nothing but facts and the truth, yet gets dislikes while Habby is arguing with what he "feels" is the case etc. and gets all them likes lol. Hockey has ways to go in getting more open-minded - in almost every facet of the game.

13.) 10 Dec 2018 20:46:34
Both of us are using facts for the most part. Hockey is doing pretty we'll I would say I'd like more fighting though.

Nylander that’s false. Point Kucherov Hedman and Vasilevskiy were listed as untouchable. Stamkos said he was never approached and didn’t have interest in waiving if he was. in fact there was talk not long ago they hadn’t even approached Palat/ Gourde/ Killorn yet although we’re bringing up some of the names in talks.

Ya the drop off in talent on the team is probably offset at least a bit by an increased role. He will get much more than you’re giving up at the deadline especially with the expansion draft coming which could help teams open cap space before next season. Trade a third for him now and get a first later doesn’t seem like a bad play tbh. Trading picks doesn’t make sense for Detroit but upgrading them sure does.

Pretty bang on with Sergachev AAV, even if he was able to get that term down to 3 years.

Cernak is the worst of the 3 RFAs I don’t think he comes out of this with the biggest contract.

Ha by the threats were real. Sergachev pulled the post to stop a big internet fight but when Tampa fans kept putting up screen shots in defence of Kucherov asked if he should put it back up. Marie Gourde showed the posts on social media. The literal same Habs fans complaining about Kucherov classlessness were telling Tampa fans to go home to their crumbling condos 20 min before the interview. I know every fan base has those idiots and they likely get stuff like this every series/ all the time but if they feel the need to talk about it in public, to me, points to Montreal fans doing a lot more/ going too far compared to what they deal with normally. As for MAF, I agree should have said names but in the moment he likely couldn’t remember them. I bet MAF and Hellebuyk aren’t half as offended as the Habs fans complaining are for them.

From a Tampa fan perspective, I was disappointed to see Montreal play a real 3rd pair because it makes it that much tougher for the lightning. Definitely the right move. Sitting KK didn’t make sense to me though he’s been good.

Don’t know if you followed but nothing Kucherov said was really wrong. Montreal fans had to be tear gassed and damaged 8 police cars after 1 win, they partied like a cup for one win. He also probably doesn’t make the comments except for the fact that Tampa players and their families received a lot of death threats and other terrible messages from Montreal fans during the series. Some fans told Yanni Gourdes wife they hoped their daughter got cancer and died. He’s obviously not going to be happy with them. As for Fleury ya not saying his name was disrespectful but Fleury didn’t run away with the vezina on the stat sheet Vasi was as good in more games and lost because 3 GMs left him off the ballot. He wasn’t commenting on Fleury it was a jab at the GMs that voted. The comment about him watching himself in the corners, he was targeted my the Habs all series with a broken rib from the last once, he’s used to it because that’s how teams play him in the playoffs. It’s not going to be new.

But Point IS a dynamic 90 point player in a defensively responsible system. If that’s what we think Barzal is in a more offensive system without the same level of defence where does he overtake Point as an overall player? Barzal is a great player and I agree he’s better offensively than he’s shown due to system and his wingers. I just think Point is getting undersold when we’re saying if Barzal was in a more offensive system he’d match Points offence so he’s better than Point.

Mertle you know that TB was a top defensive team, and better than the isles defensively last year right? They pride themselves on their defence and Point is given a lot of responsibility. There are arguments to be made for Barzal, but Tampa sells out for offence isn’t one of them. Best argument you can make is probably that Point has more help, Barzal doesn’t have much else to work with, but in the ECF the two weren’t comparable and Point was hurt.
