Pittsburgh rebuilds
1. Letang to Montreal for Romanov + Drouin + 2nd in 2022
Montreal fills Weber's spot on the top D pair with a much better player. Pens get replacement D and a pick.
2. Malkin to Washington, Kuznetsov to Rangers, Strome + 2nd in 2022 via Caps and 4th in 2022 via Rangers
We finally get to see Malkin + OV, Rangers get their 1C assuming they are out on Eichel and Pens get a young C and 2 picks.
3. Crosby to Avs for Byram, Newhook, Kadri and 2022 1st
Avs give up a lot, but it would probably take an overpay. They then can play Crosby + Mack on one line and Rantanen + Landi on another- easily two of the best lines. Pens get 2 strong prospects and a pick. They can move Kadri

Tough to say which one of the 3 are worse.

01 Aug 2021 17:30:09
@Habby not saying any would happen, just trying to make interesting content :D.

01 Aug 2021 18:05:38
Ok I’ll just comment on the first for now. Kris kelang could have been had for much less then this especially before free agency. And he is not and never was a much better player then Weber. well maybe now but only cause Weber is injured.

01 Aug 2021 20:08:59
I got to disagree. 3 cups versus zero, 582 points in 863 versus 589 in 1038, his recent stats are much much better, his +/ - is better as well and he had more hits and blocks last year. Letang would be a massive upgrade over weber.

01 Aug 2021 22:56:43
You can agree or disagree bud that’s your choice. but you don’t have to waste your time trying to sway my opinion. cause it ain’t going to happen. I’ll chose the eye test every time over random stats.

02 Aug 2021 00:19:40
Weber and Letang are two completely different players.
Had Weber had guys like Crosby and Malkin, he also would have won a few cups.
A healthy in prime Weber vs a healthy in prime Letang? I'll take Weber all the time. probably not a Dman in last 15 yrs I would take over him, maybe Hedman.

02 Aug 2021 17:22:06
I don't see solving weber absence with Letang. Different style, and Letang has an injury history probably worse until now.

Is malkin getting strome a 2nd and a 4th? Seems like you can trade him for real value. Calgary would probably give a 1st+ especially. With retention.

Colorado is not going to give up Byram. Crosby with landeskog on his wing could be great.

Malkin to flames for gadreau and a 1st (retain on malkin 2 mil) .

Crosby and Letang to rangers for strome, kappo, georgiev, 2 firsts, and retain on them if needed.

02 Aug 2021 21:25:58
@Monkeyful Not a chance!

Malkin is 35 years old, declining and UFA in a year.

Calgary would be better off just keeping Johnny and letting him walk in a year than doing that trade!

03 Aug 2021 11:28:48
Malkin is 35, he’s obviously still really good but I’d rather keep Gaudreau and I’m sure the flames would too….

03 Aug 2021 11:29:33
Malkin would be like a deadline type deal involving picks and prospects to a contending team.

01 Aug 2021 13:30:43
Mtl- 1st pick 2022-romanov

Tb- Cirelli

Mtl-drouin-2nd pick 2022

01 Aug 2021 15:13:52
No from Habs on both.

03 Aug 2021 02:16:21
Sosa Cirelli > 1st and Romanov

low first, top 6 dman. Easy no.

Toronto Trades

Washington Trades

Washington has been looking to unload Kuznetsov and getting a Top 4 Defenceman back in Rielly plus a suitable Centre in Kerfoot would be what Washington would be looking for, Washington isn't trading Kuznetsov at his peak trade value so everyone needs to understand that.

Leafs are getting a Centre that could again give Toronto a super first line of Tavares, Matthews and Marner with newly signed Ritchie on the second line with Kuznetsov and Nylander, with this being the season that Sandin and Liljegren become full time NHLers Rielly will be missed but time to change a few key pieces, plus it gives The Leafs more Cap Space.

Thoughts ?

Agree5 Disagree13

01 Aug 2021 17:22:44
That’s horrible for leafs.

01 Aug 2021 20:35:19
Kuznetsov can be very good when he feels like playing but he doesn't always show up to play. Plus his cap hit is $7.8 mil/ year for 3 more years. Reilly's cap hit is $2.8 mil less for 2021-22 though he'll undoubtedly be getting a nice raise after that.

Toronto doesn't need another overpaid forward who only shows up some of the time. On top of which losing Reilly would make an already poor defense worse.

If for some reason Toronto wanted to trade Reilly for Kuznetsov anyhow they shouldn't have to add. If anything Washington might have to add (assuming a prearranged deal to sign with them) . If Kerfoot needs to go for cap reasons the Leafs can always trade him elsewhere and at least get something back.

01 Aug 2021 23:20:19
Kuznetsov is one of the few players I wouldn’t want added to this team. I hate the terms ‘lazy’ and ‘selfish’, but the more and more you read ab Kuzy’s antics off the ice, it just seems like hockey isn't his #1 priority. For a team with 4 very good players in the offence already, Toronto doesn't need to add Kuzys antics to fill an offensive void, and would much rather look elsewhere, imo.

02 Aug 2021 17:28:51
I thought Getzlaf would have been Toronto best f/ a target, but figured he's staying home. Probably can't trade tavares, but to me, he's the one not doing his job. They need a winner, who still wants to win, in their top 6.

And a dirty defenseman in top 4 that'll get ugly at playoff time.

01 Aug 2021 01:07:52
Leafs send dermott and engvall to Seattle for oleksiak 30% retained.

Do you honestly think there is a chance of this happening?

Rangers Trade

Leafs Trade
1st Round Pick 2021

Rangers are always pressured to win now and with them so strong on LW Trading Lafreniere even though long term it hurts them adding Rielly on Defense makes them very strong in net and defense, they will have enough Cap to sign a few forwards for there Top 6.

This is the type of genius trade proposal Dubas can entice The Rangers with, as getting Lafreniere plus having more Cap will yes hurt the defense but still be able to be more flexible with there roster.

Thoughts ?

Agree2 Disagree21

31 Jul 2021 23:48:22
Not close to enough. Draft already happened and Leafs didn’t have a pick.

01 Aug 2021 00:50:02
Huge no from NY.

02 Aug 2021 17:33:14
Rangers aren't pressured to win enough for this. They decided to rebuild, got sped up with lafrenier and kakko, and fox and panarin wanting to go there. They are playoff bound i think, and that's the pressure this year.

Reilly over lafrenier probably doesn't improve their team much this year. He'd be hurting fox's development a bit i think, taking away pp time.

EDM: Mikko Koskinen + Dmitri Samorukov + 1st Round 2022

CBJ: Joonas Korpisalo

Re sign Elvis Merzlikins 4x5.5M AAV.

Agree3 Disagree12

31 Jul 2021 22:17:30
I don’t know for sure but I think Columbus would rather keep Korpisalo and trade Elvis.

01 Aug 2021 04:58:00
That’s a rumoured deal.

01 Aug 2021 15:01:59
No way websjac, Elvis has a lot more potential, he need to be the cbj franchise goalie for next 5-7 years for sure.

01 Aug 2021 17:28:00
@Arty then that makes sense for both teams. If Clb prefers Elvis, Edm would prefer Korpisalo since he’s cheaper. Good trade.

02 Aug 2021 00:03:55
I think Korpisalo is a perfect target for Edmonton if his value reflects his last couple seasons. This is too much to give up for a guy that has worse numbers than Koskinen.

02 Aug 2021 21:55:27
Take out Korpisalo or retain a big chunk of his salary and Columbus might do it.

02 Aug 2021 21:56:08
I meant take out a big chunk of Koskinen's salary.

03 Aug 2021 04:47:06
Columbus doesn’t have salary issues so I don’t think they’d need to retain on Koskinen. He’d be a good back up and a tradeable asset at the deadline. Korpisalo’s value is his age and potential and considering his numbers the past three seasons I don’t think it’s a 1st pick +.

09 Aug 2021 23:31:30
I'll have what Pinball is having.

Arizona Trades

Toronto Trades

Straight up one for one trade proposal, yes Rielly is obviously the better player but is a UFA after this upcoming season, Dvorak is signed long term.

Arizona will probably flip Rielly at the deadline for a 1st Round Pick as they will be tanking this upcoming season to get as many high draft picks as possible for there rebuild.

Toronto gets the perfect replacement for Hyman on the Top Line with Matthews and Marner and with this being the year that Sandin and Liljegren become regulars plus giving Dermott a bigger roll on Defense to move Rielly is something to consider.

Thoughts ?

Agree3 Disagree12

31 Jul 2021 20:02:16
Rielly is worth more imo.

10 Aug 2021 17:58:12
Rielly is signed for one year.

Dvorak is signed for 4 years at an attractive cap hit of 4.45M.


Do think Dvorak is worth just a BIT more?

31 Jul 2021 01:58:45
After the clusterfook of a statement from Eichels agents here my proposal,

Nylander, Kerfoot, Amirov, 2022 first, 2022 second, 2023 second. Throw lilypad in there if there's not enough move Tavares to the wing and let's go.

Agree0 Disagree9

31 Jul 2021 02:02:50
Not a good idea… depth is needed to win chips.

31 Jul 2021 20:05:17
Not even close. Nylander is a the most valuable piece in that package obviously but why would you want to add another 10mil contract and lose your second best winger?

Sabres say no just because of age not value.
Toronto says no because Eichel’s contract and position.

10 Aug 2021 18:02:41
You should throw in the leafs' 7th pick too and then they don't even have to go to the draft.
