This is plain ridiculous. Lets sign an overrated "star" to an absurd contract, make an imaginary trade with WPG that will never happen and then not upgrade one of the weakest D corps in the league...


you're not getting Stamkos for 8.5 either. Think closer to 11 b/c someone is going to throw it on the table.

I honestly don't even want them to go after him... I was just seeing how the money worked... I originally put him down for 10m, just to check the money, but changed it...

palhal, yes I live in Aurora.
dont get me wrong, I like the prospects coming up the system ... when I watch, I celebrate when they score, but keep looking at the standings hoping they stay as low as possible.

hopefully, they have a good trade deadline, and really are able to move some of these 1 year contracts for picks or prospects.
maybe everything will line up and just as they are getting good, my kids will be the right age to enjoy a stanley cup win with me!

Quoting: HabsFor25
Quoting: palhal
I'm sure Carolina doesn't need DD, and Arizona is strong at centre and don't want Plek at 6m a year. Edmonton could use Emelin's 3m to better use.


Carolina can easily fit 1 year of cap space for a decent 3rd line player to get a better pick at the draft. Plek for 2 years is affordable with phoenix and he'll be good for the young players. They also get a very good prospect in Scherbak and a future starter in Fucale AND a 2nd round pick which more than makes up for Trading the 9th pick for their 7th in this deep, deep draft awaiting.


The worst part is that DD isn't even all that bad. Its just that MTL desperately needs bigger players. If DD is given some big/strong wingers to play with, he still has some value. But alas in a NHL where every penny counts and most teams would rather spend elsewhere DD is a hard sell. His line with Flash and Weise was the main reason the Habs had the record start they did.

The Pleks trade funny enough almost makes more sense without Plekanec in it. When you rationalize it a bit, MTL is pretty much giving up four (former and current) 1st rounders for Duclair and the 7OA. Scherbak 26th. Fucale 36th, 2016 1st (9th), 2016 2nd (39th). All "pretty much" 1st rounders. I would at the very least consider it if i were Arizona. Regarding Plekanec himself, poor guy will never get much recognition. 50-60 pt center who is widely considered among the top (non-Selke finalist) defensive centers in the game. People are scared away by the 6 Mil he just signed the most but when considering its only for 2 years and signing a UFA center of that calibre will cost you a minimum of 5-6M for at least 4-5 years, your getting a top end 2nd line center at current market value for half the term it would cost you on the free agent market. Oh well fine, looks like MTL is "stuck" with Pleky but in all honesty, thats one of the good problems to have. He is by no means anywhere close to the equivalent of a Girardi or Staal in NY if some people think that.....

The Emelin trade is probably the hardest sell. The guy is simply not good enough. The big checks make him flashy and possibly worth taking a gamble on but most GM's know by this point his foot speed and decision making is just good enough to command anything more than a 1.5-2M/year contract. Anything higher and a better option is automatically available.

I don't know why anyone would want to trade Flynn. The guy is the definition of 13th forward and performs it to a "tee" He has so little negative impact on the team that there's no point in trading him. His PK skills are highly underrated. He and Mitchell were amazing early on in the year until they both got injured. if for whatever reason you don't like him anymore, bury him in the minors for full cap relief.

Why would you trade Desharnais and a 3 to move down two rounds in the draft?


The idea is that if you take DD off our hands, we'll improve your draft pick. Gives MTL more cap space and gives the other team decent player and a better draft position.

Nope didn't seem harsh haha just fun to see what other people think. I agree tough to know how they value such young players but I'd add more to get two quality d men. Seems like a perfect fit for Minny as well as a top centre may be the only thing holding them back.

Exo and Orionus are pretty spot on here. The selke-esk center reference is extremely accurate and many know that who closely follow the Hawks. Again 3+ mil for a 4th liner is more than I would have been thinking but he did take a pay cut this year, risking a TON, on a one year contract which shows his commitment and trust in the organization. You don't find that often. He arguably makes the entire PK what it is. And he can shut down the best lines in the NHL as has been proven during many playoff series.

Right now it is Kruger over Shaw. As much as I like Shaw that is what it is. If the Hawks somehow resign Shaw this year then it will be up to TT to prove he can play next to Toews on the top line next year. If he fails and doesn't prove his worth as a top 2 liner or is asking too much he could be shopped around. I don't see that happening though.

Until the Hawks can find or develop very solid #4 and #5 defensemen they NEED an A+ goalie like Crawfish. Right now the only reason I am worried about the Hawks playoff chances is because they only have 3 solid defensemen.

Well, Yakupov has never been sniper at the NHL level, but you're right, Buffalo might be good place for him to start over. Don't think Chicago would give up Pokka and Shaw for that package. Maybe just Shaw.
Don't overpay for Golgoski....6.5m could be spent much better.
Yak also can be had for cheap right now and I like him as a project. Buffalo taking on Bickells contract drops the value which I believe makes this deal logical. Upping the draft pick/adding a middling prospect is fine with me. And I wasn't totally sure what Goligoskies value would be and I high-balled because I'm only giving him 3 years. That is my logic at least

subtle? You trade for one of the better young goalie prospects in the league how has shown he can play in the NHL for an underwhelming package?

Martin Jones fetched a first rounder and a prospect with 34gm played with a 0.921 sv%. Pickard has played 36gms and has a 0.926 sv%. Thats the price tag for young NHL caliber starting goaltenders


I meant subtle compared to all the JVR for Frederik Anderson trades posted. You could be right that a 2nd and Holland is under-selling his value. I'm assuming some leverage because of the coming expansion draft but it could take more than this to get him.

We're also talking about the same GM who gave up two 2nds for Polak and Spaling.

This is bad. Two young NHL regulars who will be "under control" as when their contracts are up they are still RFAs for an upcoming UFA, a NHLer who shouldn't be, and a AHLer.
Please don't push Pouliot's trade value off as "an AHLer". Pouliot is a young, ELC defensemen with the potential to become an elite offensive defensemen in this league. He is by far the most valuable piece being offered by the Pens in this trade.
