MTL: Hoffman

CGY: 4th ('23)

or 2nd ('23) with 50% retention.

Treliving wants a shooter, and Hoffman has looked much better in the past month. With a better C feeding that shot of his he would be far more productive than the 20-goal pace he's on.

To Avs: Drouin @ 50%
To Habs: 5th round (becomes a 3rd if Drouin has a minimum of 15 pts. In playoffs)

Gives Drouin a chance to réunit with McKinnon and prove he still has something to offer. Habs get a pick.

3-Way Trade:


- Edmundson to EDM (25% retained)
- Dadonov to EDM (50% retained)

- Gallagher to ANA (25% retained)- - Ylonen to ANA
- 3rd (2023) to ANA
- 5th (2024) to ANA


- Gallagher to EDM (retains 50%)


- 1st (2023) to MTL
- 5th (2023) to MTL
- 5th (2024) to MTL
- Foegle to MTL (clears 2 years x 2.75M)
- Puljujärvi (Clear Cap)

- 3rd (2023) to ANA


- MTL gets a 1st & 2 5th, and clears Gallagher's contract off the books. (Gally waives to get another Cup shot near home)

- ANA turns available cap space into 3 picks and a prospect to retain 2.438M x the next 4 seasons.

- EDM gets a big, top-4 D, for this season and next, and hometown boy Gally at a fraction of his current contract, and a guy (Dadonov) who might fit in beautifully with the talented top-9 in EDM in exchange for a 1st, 3rd, and 2 5ths, while getting the salary relief to make much needed additions.

Nobody's going after Gallagher. Not until he proves he can stay healthy.

Trade to be completed at this summers draft

Jets trade Dubois


Montreal for Kirby Dach and Kaiden Guhle.

There isn't enough there for the Jets to consider it. Dach is an okay winger and Guhle, while good, is an LHD and not needed.

Winnipeg would get more for PLD as a rental at next year's TDL. So they say no.

Agree0 Disagree2

26 Jan 2023 17:57:27
No way Habs do that deal. Guhle could very well be a top pairing defenseman and Dach could be the Winger Suzuki and Caufield need. Habs could just wait and get him for nothing the next off season.

Why would Mtl trade for Dubois, let alone give up value, when they will still be in somewhat of a rebuild when Dubois contract is up.

2nd Round Pick in 2023 (MTL)
D - Lane Hutson

to Montreal Canadiens :
LW - Alexis Lafreniere

to New York Rangers :

I feel like I’m so far off on Dubois’ value but I wanna post it anyway cause it’s different.

It's probably not enough for Winnipeg. If I'm the Habs I might not do it either. We can get Dubois for free next year and Hudson's going to be really good I think.

I don't hold a lot of value in Lafreniere.

MTL : Monahan (50% retained at 3.187AAV), Edmundson (at 3.5M AAV until 2024), 2023 VGK 4th round pick

NYR : Lafreniere, Blais

NYR has around 5.3M in deadline cap space so with Blais offloaded, this trade fits under the cap.
Rangers get a solid 2nd line center rental who probably will play on their 3rd line, pushing Chytil to the wing in Lafreniere's spot. They get defensive depth for the playoffs and next year with a solid shutdown Dman in Edmundson to take Harpur's spot on the 3rd pair. They also get a 4th round pick to replace the one they already traded away

MTL gets a Quebecois, who has struggled to adjust to the NHL but with excellent potential. They also get another Quebecois who acts as a cap dump, who has underperformed but could maybe benefit from a change of scenery.

All in all, this trade is a gamble for both teams.

On one end, NY could be giving out a very good player that has been underperforming since his NHL debut. If Lafreniere reaches his projected potential, they might regret trading him for a rental and a 2nd/3rd dman, but for now, they are in a win-now mode and the pieces they are acquiring would help them make a deep push in the playoffs. It's also worth to note that they still have some very good prospects in their system with Othmann, Garand, Cuylle and Korczak, so they wouldn't be depleting their prospect pool.

On the other end, if Lafreniere ends up being a bust, trading both Monahan and Edmundson in separate trades for picks would have been more profitable for MTL. But they might end up in a similar situation as the Dach deal, with a good promising player who benefitted from a change of scenery.

With MTL falling far down the standings, they currently have a combined 12.5% at the 1st overall with their pick and Florida's first. It's time to sell to increase that percentage and increase their chances at getting Bedard. They probably can't outtank Chicago or Anaheim, but with their combined odds, they might end up with better chances than both those teams if they drop far enough.

MTL : Joel Edmundson (Reported asking price is about as high as Gavrikov)
EDM : Puljujarvi, Xavier Bourgault

MTL : Monahan 50% retained for 3.187M AAV
COL : 1st

MTL : Allen, 2023 4th round pick
NJD : Blackwood

MTL : Drouin 50% retained for 2.75M AAV
PIT : Heinen, 2024 5th round pick

MTL : Anderson, 2024 3rd round pick
CGY : Lucic, Rooney, Pelletier

MTL : Dvorak
WSH : Protas, Lapierre

A lot of these players traded by MTL are skilled and are not benefitting at all from the team's overall abysmal offensive production. They will produce a lot more in a new, better offensive system. Even with very weak offensive support, Anderson is still on pace for 22 goals, Monahan is on pace for 53 pts, for example

Lafernierre to montreal

Monahan to rangers 50 percent retained
Kane to rangers some retaining

Colarado 2 round pic to Chicago
Rangers 1st overall pic
Libor Hayek

Would probably have to be abit more added, as if Patrick Kane resigned another 1 round pic would be offered up.

I don't see Montreal trading either 1st round pic, unless the pics are high enough to trade both to move up to first overall pic,

Good fit for all concerned . st Louis will be able to get the best out of Laf. HABS are very week on Lw . HABS could throw in Drouin if needed or wanted. Let us move on with people that can score!

Agree0 Disagree1

Make the 1st round pick condional, maybe protect top 10 pics and change it to the one they got from Calgary other wise, rangers probably would prefer 2024 or 2025 pic as they possibly have two this year. Or maybe 3 way team trade between rangers Montreal and Chicago would make more sense.
