VEGAS: Jake Allen (50% retained)

MTL: 2023 1st & 6th

- Vegas needs insurance in G, and Allen is the kind of personality that gets along with everyone.

- Vegas currently has $4166 Cap Space at the deadline. This trade gives them $891,666 in deadline space to go shopping and address additional needs

Allen is still a good goalie however he can be traded for the right price.

MTL: Edmundson

LA: 1st + 4th (2023)

- Edmundson won the Cup in 2019 with STL & went to the Finals in 2021 with MTL. (That kind of experience matters to NHL GM's).

- At a reasonable 3.5M this year and next, he's a key add for someone with an open window.

- LA, EDM & CAR are rumoured to be interested. With his past playoff performance and size he will be in demand.

He is currently day-to-day, and with the trade deadline 3 weeks from tomorrow, it will be interesting to see if this goes to the deadline, or if someone pulls a "Lou" and nabs him early.

LA & CAR don't need to send MTL a bad contract to fit him in, or require retention, but needless to say that will cost extra in trade capital.

Good trade for all concerned!

I think Montreal might have to eat some salary but a first from anybody is good enough.

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.

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.

MTL is getting the short end of this deal.

2.) 01 Feb 2023 23:25:45
Nobody's going after Gallagher. Not until he proves he can stay healthy.

MTL trades Dvorak to PHI for:

- van Riemsdyk (No retention/IR for 6 more weeks)
- 1st ('23)
- 3rd ('23)
- Ronnie Attard (RD prospect)

Philly gets help at C where they're currently dealing with injuries, as well as getting rid of that awful JVR contract, leaving them with roughly 5M in cap space for further moves.

MTL leverages their space for picks and a RD prospect.

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.
