LA Trades:

- Rittich
- 2nd ('25)
- 4th ('26)

MTL Trades:

- Allen

- LA has Talbot as their starter, and desperately needs help beyond what Rittich can offer.

- Allen can help this year and next, and because the G supply is limited and demand is high, he brings a higher return due to market conditions.

"MTL still encourages teams needing cap relief to bring their garbage pending UFA contracts for some sweet, sweet cap relief at OUTRAGEOUS asset costs."

I wish we could get that. I would settle for the 4th.

NYI Trade:

- Matt Martin
- 1st Round Pick ('26)

MTL Trade:

- Savard

- NYI only have 2 healthy RD, and Savard is playoff-tested, big, and still has plenty shot-blocking & timely scoring in him to help them this year and next.

- MTL gets a second 1st in each of the coming 3 seasons. I see them packaging some of their extra NHL-ready yound D along with some 1st rounders to get some high-end talent up front. (They have quantity, now it's time to target some quality high-end targets.)

- Martin has been a good soldier for Lou, but he's a throw-in on this deal to make the dollars work.

Not getting a 1st for Savard. A 2nd would be nice, but he might be worth hanging onto and doing a deal next year.

BadHabits99 Savard was traded for a 1st, 3rd and 4th just a couple years ago and is having his best offensive season. He can absolutely get a 1st. He can absolutely get more than that. Especially if retention happens. No one thought monahan would get a first but this is the market. It’s what happens at the TDL.

I thought Monahan was worth more then a first. So you are saying Savard is worth more then Monahan?

WPG Trades:

- 2024 2nd (MTL)
- 2025 1st

MTL Trades:

- Monahan
- Kapanen

- Chevy gets the C he needs to take important faceoffs without taking from his active roster.

- MTL increases picks for draft or trade.

- MTL increases available cap space to 7.2M, and encourages all teams in need of deadline cap space to come with offers to dump their garbage for prospects & picks.

MTL Trades:

- Gallagher (25% retained)
- Primeau
- Norlinder

EDM Trades:

- Campbell
- Bourgault
- 1st ('25)

- EDM gets two guys who can play now.

- EDM gets depth in net and at forward.

- Gally gets to come home and refocus his game on a true contender.

- EDM gets rid of the Campbell contract AND adds to their team, while keeping their 1st in 2024 for another move if needed.

- MTL does right by Gally, sending him home to a contender, so that he can play meaningful games again.

- MTL & EDM exchange prospects that no one values especially highly, but wouldn't want to lose for nothing.

- MTL scan but out or bury Campbell in the minors, without any of the guilt of doing it to a good soldier like Gally.

- MTL gives some future in Norlinder to secure the 1st, while freeing up prospect space on D.

- Campbell
- Gagner (pending UFA/CPP/OAS)
- 1st (2025)
- 2nd (2024)
- 3rd (2026)


- Allen (50% Retained)
- Armia


- rid of Campbell's ridiculous contract for this season & 3 more.

- a quality 1B G who is good in the room and will help stabilize the net this year and next.

- a RW with size who performs well in the playoffs to help fill out their bottom 6.


- 3 picks and for their final retention slot over the coming 3 years.

- an open roster spot for another prospect while solving their crease dilemma.

- the fun of buying out the final 3 seasons of Campbell's ridiculous deal in the summer. (6 years = 1.1M, 2.3M, 2.6M, 1.5M, 1.5M & 1.5M)

IN SHORT: EDM pays some future to have a shot now, while MTL plays the long game and adds futures.

OMG…?…HUGE no, and those long rants read worse than the leaf fan drivel that you compared yourself to.

Habs are rebuilding and trading a package for a UFA is simply insane.

Levi isn’t a serious prospect to BUF or anywhere else. Easy no.

Yeah…no from MTL. (I see Price was mentioned originally but didn’t seem to make it to the rest of the trade offer? )

That trade offer gets your number blocked by MTL.
