Nylander (50% retained) to Calgary for 1st, 2nd, Bennett and Kylington

See how dumb that sounds.

Agree10 Disagree6

03 Apr 2021 19:54:47
Yeah You do look pretty dumb this would put the leafs way over the cap unlike other trades where a player is retained because the leafs are the tightest team against the cap in nhl history and they literally can’t make a trade unless they take back less salary which is not feasible without moving Kerfoot/ Mikeyhev, a important dman or a star.

Also if you’re comparing Kylington to Amirov/ Lilijgren/ Robertson/ Sandin just stop there because you’re making yourself look silly. Trade that to the blues for Hoffman.

01 Apr 2021 21:34:54
Make offer for Mike hoffman.

Agree2 Disagree1

02 Apr 2021 08:18:38
Hoffman (50% retained) for Kerfoot, Engvall lmaoo.

02 Apr 2021 14:25:49
Habs send a 6th . Blues retain 90%.

02 Apr 2021 14:51:44
Hoffman has been garbage don’t see him being claimed if put on waiver. Could see him getting a 2nd at 50% retained.

01 Apr 2021 14:42:58
Oilers need more bigger grittier style of players.

They have too many "smaller style" of players;
Drai(he is big but not gritty)
Pools(again big but not gritty)
Nurse(again big but not gritty like he should be)
*Thats 11 players!!!

Mcd, Drai and Nurse are not going anywhere but I would be open to trading some of the rest to get some Bigger and Grittier players.
Players like a young Perry or Chara, a Wilson or Reeves. The Oilers need these style of plays throughout their line up. They get pushed around too much.

Possible Options;
Dougie Hamilton (top 4 D)
Jamie Oleksiak (top 4 D)
Anthony Mantha (1st or 2nd line)
T.J. Miller (1st line)
Ryan Getzlaf (2nd or 3rd line C)
Marcus Foligno (3rd line)
Chris Kreider (2nd or 3rd line)
Austin Watson (4th line)

The Oilers just need to get some bigger players in their line up.

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Apr 2021 18:28:55
These players might not be “gritty” but there not “smaller style” of players. McDavid is strong on the puck and definitely not small. Yamo throws lots of hits and is quick on the forecheck. Drai doesn’t hit often but uses his size in different ways. Puljujarvi is heavy on the forecheck and in front of the net. Ennis similar to Yamo. Don’t think Bears size is an issue. Nurse is probably one of the stronger guys in the league, and isn’t afraid to fight anyone. And some of the players you named are almost a point per game players that don’t need to be gritty.

01 Apr 2021 19:43:18
Ya they are not so called small is size but they are not gritty or power forwards. McD and Drai are strong on the puck and that's great. I do like Yamo cause he throws hits but he also gets tossed around a lot. And I agree about Nurse but he doesn't use it like he should. And Yes Bear is good too . but your missing my point. There is just too many of those plays.

Bear, Barrie, Russell, 3 D-men that are small. Then add Nurse who doesn't use his strength enough and Lagesson who is still learning the NHL. There needs to be a mixture of grit and size. So they don't get pushed around in front of our net.

I just feel that there needs to be more size so they don't get beat in battles and can score those grease goals. We have the top 2 players in the NHL so they have the skill but just lacking in the grit and size.

01 Apr 2021 23:29:49
Mantha would be a solid add.

02 Apr 2021 14:53:34
I don’t know I see McDavid as a more skilled Matt Cooke/ Ralffi Touris loves to make cheap shots. Probably dirtiest player in NHL.

02 Apr 2021 19:49:53
I agree with most of what Ebs said but please don’t say Ennis is physical.

02 Apr 2021 22:52:11
Lol no I think I just mean aggressive on the forecheck. I actually thought Yamo through more hits than he’s credited for. Either way I don’t think Yamo’s size is much of an issue. Ennis might be better off replaced with a bigger player considering he’s in the bottom 6.

03 Apr 2021 15:12:05
Just checking Ebs. I watching him play in Toronto and if he hit anyone, it was accidental. Just like the rest of the leaf team. I think Edmonton is built well for the playoffs.

04 Apr 2021 22:15:01
Toronto17, Edmonton and Leafs are both great regular season team. They are not playoffs teams, unless they end up playing each other in round 1 that’s how far they will go.

05 Apr 2021 20:16:09
A few years back the oilers looked good and physical in their playoff run. If Kassian and Nurse play a physical game, that’s all you need. Not everyone has to hit and fight but the presence needs to be there. I like Montreal’s team but you seem to think they are the team to beat.

06 Apr 2021 03:03:01
Mtl will be the team to beat in the North comes playoff time. They have at least 4 game in their pockets on other teams and still manage to hold tight for a playoff spot. The worse is that they haven’t even started playing to the potential they have. With the quality depth they have and the Stanley cup winners they have on the team they are serious cup contenders to anyone who knows what it takes to win in the NHL.

06 Apr 2021 19:39:21
I guess we will see. They haven’t even started playing to their potential is quite comical. That could be said about every team considering nobody knows what that is. It could be said that a few Montreal players are playing above average right now.

31 Mar 2021 00:13:52
I wonder if someone did that to mcdavid would it be a suspension?

Agree2 Disagree1

31 Mar 2021 13:22:17
100% if he isn’t suspended or fined then everyone around the league witnessed superstar privilege. Totally unnecessary, went out of his way to make that hit. Very late, and directly to the head, even extended his elbow. If Matthew Tkachuk did that everybody would lose their minds.

31 Mar 2021 16:18:30
He was fined 5 grand. be the equivalent of me being fined 5 cents. Deffenitley was a dirty hit, not McDavid like, as he is a very classy player. i'm ok with him not being suspended, this time. If it happens again, then he deffinetley should be suspended, jus like everyone else.

I don't agree with a player being fined 5 grand though., I think the financial penalties need to be a lot more. that's really nothing to these millionaire players.

31 Mar 2021 20:40:30
I didn't realize he was once suspended before for 2 games. so, I retract what I said, he should have recieved a suspension.

01 Apr 2021 00:26:53
Disgusting that wasn’t a suspension.

01 Apr 2021 10:52:37
@toronto17 I know right, unbelievable. If that was Tkachuk oh boy.

01 Apr 2021 17:05:22
Okay wait, was it a late hit . Yes.
Was it a hit to the head . No. If you watch it in slo-mo you can see that it is a shoulder hit but his follow though from the hit caused his arms to get higher. But still not a head hit!

No where near as bad as Ovechkins groin spear. And he got no suspension!

"Ovechkin avoids suspension for spearing Frederic in groin"
He was only fined $5,000 . and that was very dirty.

But we all should be able to agree on one thing . the Department of Player Safety is a joke!

03 Apr 2021 15:15:12
I don’t know oil. The follow through doesn’t count? Players are supposed to be in control of their stick, you think flying elbows would be the same.

30 Mar 2021 04:33:50
I’m sorry Memarcusjoe and Islandjet you’ll probably take offence. But this game has the worst officiating I’ve ever seen. Flames are playing really bad but the biased reffing in favour of Winnipeg isn’t helping at all. The boarding against Tanev ended up being a penalty against Calgary. the intentional kick in goal, weakest goals against Calgary and not calling penalties in favour of Calgary.

Agree4 Disagree0

30 Mar 2021 13:37:29
Eh, they all even out over time. Lucic should have had a 5 minute boarding penalty 2 games before, Tkachuk should constantly be in the penalty box for diving or cheap shoting. The refs are inconsistent no doubt, but they are pretty evenly inconsistent. Other than name players always getting calls in their favour.

30 Mar 2021 13:39:40
The weak goals had nothing to do with reffing obviously, just included in my rant. The refs have been dog sh** this year.

30 Mar 2021 14:45:32
I hear ya'. It can be pretty hard sometimes when you see obvious, blatant misses that cost your team, but it happens to everyone, if that helps. Don't stress about it though, it's not good for your blood pressure! 😜.

30 Mar 2021 20:45:02
Although the kick in goal was called correctly. Thompson's leg was already fully extended when the puck hit it, so he couldn't possibly have kicked it in. He just directed it in, which is legal.

30 Mar 2021 21:59:18
Yea I guess so. I hate the flames.

30 Mar 2021 23:31:51
Tim peel is gone so that alone will improve the overall officiating.

28 Mar 2021 20:00:09
If the Calgary flames rebuild what players stay and what players would go?

Make a list for me who gets traded and what comes back in return. I will give you my 4 trades and I want to see yours.
1- Sam Bennett for nick robertson
2- Sean Monahan to Buffalo for Sam reinhart
3- Mark Giordano to a contender.

Agree2 Disagree5

28 Mar 2021 20:41:28
How about Jacob Peltier for Alex Kerfoot? Nick Robertson isn't even 20 years old and is already better then Bennet.

29 Mar 2021 21:56:04
As much as I like Bennett, I agree with Nylander on this one.

30 Mar 2021 13:48:45
Robertson has 9pts in 10 AHL games, I wouldn’t exactly call him better than Bennett. Obviously a good player and imo he’ll most likely be way better but that’s just a slight over exaggeration. It’s too early to tell just yet, he still has yet to prove if he’s an NHL player. If we’re going to use that logic, then Bennett had 36pts in his rookie season and put up a 4 goal game against Florida. former flames prospect Emile Poirier put up 42pts in 55 games in his first full AHL season, just to only register 1pt in his only 8 NHL games. Don’t get your hopes up too quick, only time will tell.

30 Mar 2021 14:48:24
NotACasual look up youngest player to play a nhl playoff game in leafs history then get back to me. ( he’d be the youngest ever of c.v. didn't delay playoffs ) the only reason he is in AHL because he was injured his 1st game this year. The leafs are also ridiculously deep.

30 Mar 2021 23:34:00
How are the leafs ridiculously deep? This gets thrown around a lot by leaf fans there 3rd and 4th lines are no better then any other playoff team.

31 Mar 2021 16:35:16
The leafs have a very solid farm system although they lost 2 players through waivers.

31 Mar 2021 16:45:35
So it’s not because of nhl depth right? So in other words there should be a spot for Robertson right? I mean if he’s so good and so nhl ready. or maybe just maybe leafs management feel at this time it’s better for him and the leafs if he stays on the farm. has nothing to do with the ridiculous depth they have.

31 Mar 2021 16:50:53
Also what is Robertson one of maybe 2 forwards on the Marlins who are under 25 that might have a chance at playing In The nhl someday? Yeah they deep all right.

06 Apr 2021 21:25:54
If Leafs have ridiculous depth, what do you call the Canadiens depth? Because if you want to argue that Leafs has a better overall depth at the NHL and AHL level, be my guess. I mean it. Try.

27 Mar 2021 21:06:30
Woah what a surprise Erik Staal moved at 50% retained! I thought no body retains on contracts or is it just the leafs no one retains on?

Agree0 Disagree3

30 Mar 2021 13:52:20
There’s a difference. a bottom feeding team on double digit losing streak retaining 50% on a 3mil 1yr contract as opposed to a decent team retaining 50% on a star player (Forsberg) @ 6mil for 2 years. do you not see the difference or?

30 Mar 2021 14:50:14
At the time of the 50% Forsburg deals the Preds were in the same position as the Sabres. The Preds are hott now. They won’t sell their players anymore.

30 Mar 2021 23:22:01
@Nylander, yes they were in a similar position.

The key difference is term. Retaining on a rental for a higher return is a common idea for trades in the NHL today as contenders look to bolster their roster for the playoffs.

Asking teams like Detroit for Mantha or Nashville for Forsberg to retain on guys with term is likely a non starter given the current economic environment for teams now.

Teams selling their players very likely would prefer not to retain on term if possible. Not saying it won’t happen but it’s far more rare than retaining salary on a rental like Eric Staal.

31 Mar 2021 16:36:22
Forsburg has 1.5 years left. That is much different then Manthas situation.

31 Mar 2021 22:38:25
Yes their terms on different. If you ask for Forsberg at the 1 year left, Nashville would consider retaining.

Even with the extra half year, teams are less willing to hold onto salary if they don’t have to. There are teams who could probably take Forsberg for 1.5 years and no retention.

They may send cap back but it’s smarter for Nashville to take a player with cap back they can use rather than dead retained salary sitting on their books.

Same with Detroit, we would take salary back if we move Mantha . That would save us dead cap and if the salary is so bad that you’re sending, then you may need to add.

24 Mar 2021 19:07:30
Tim peel one of the worst referees to ever lace up the skates finally got caught being an incompetent idiot to the point where finally the nhl decides its time to let him go. Couldn't have happened to a better guy.too bad it's about 20 years too late

Agree3 Disagree2

26 Mar 2021 16:02:57
I have no clue what kind of ref he is but I think it’s garbage he got fired for that. Yeah he looks like a donkey getting caught on the mike but a suspension would’ve appeased the backlash. IMO that’s how the new ‘call every little stick infraction’ NHL has to be called/ managed.

27 Mar 2021 03:06:57
He’s a p. o. s and as far as I’m concerned the other ref who was there with him should have been suspended at the very least.
