If Karlsson is the return, then I have zero problem with the 2019 1st bring in play.

Ottawa has no first next year, and desperately needs one. Canucks will at the very least vault out of the lottery, if not into the playoffs, with Karlsson.

I would also gladly take Anderson off their hands. He has 2-3 years left, which may make Demko expendable if JB has faith Dipietro.
If Anderson comes here, it’ll be Markstrom, not Demko, going the other way. Karlsson is a helluva haul, but no need to sacrifice Demko and other futures for him. Karlsson going from one rebuilding team to another makes little sense to anyone.

Kovalchuk to the Kings, 3-years $18.75M (6.25M cap hit).

35+ contract.

JT’s agent informs Islanders that JT will take interviews. He has selected five teams. No release yet on who the teams are. Believe SJS and Toronto are two of the teams but not confirmed. SJS make a ton of sense. They can sign Thornton on a cap friendly deal with bonuses.

Apparently the Leafs have put together a serious offer. They are the stealth team

I believe it’s between the Islanders, Sharks and Leafs

Major trade:

No picks involved, it's the five players: Lindholm and Hanifin for Hamilton, Ferland and Fox. As I reported yesterday, the negotiating meeting between Lindholm's agent and the Hurricanes did not go well, paving the way for this trade. From TSN

Gotta say, like this one for Calgary

Apparently Hamilton is an A-hole for a teammate. Fox a decent prospect, Ferland whatever. To get Lindholm and Hanafin for that? Not bad

Thats quite the swap. Apparently listening to the fan 960 yesterday they were expecting that hamilton was on the block. Should be a good move for the lames

Struggling to figure out who has the most confused management in the league -Ottawa or Carolina

It is a good return, both will need contracts. $4M bridge for each?

Fans at Cow Puke are crazy pissed. But I like this trade for Calgary. Fox already made it known he wasn’t going to sign in Calgary. And ya something is rotten with Hamilton, a real locker room problem. Ferland is past his expiry date with all those concussions.

I too think this is a good deal for Calgary. EL was a top 5 pick and can play both centre and wing. Hamilton was dealt outta Boston for a reason, and now he's been dumped by Calgary. Hanifin > Hamilton.

But it's good to hear the Cow fans are shittin. :devil:

According to The Athletic, Tavares is expected to meet with five teams in Los Angeles to discuss the possibility of leaving the Islanders, who drafted Tavares No. 1 overall and are the only franchise he's ever played for. Tavares is reportedly ready to hold court with the Toronto Maple Leafs, San Jose Sharks, Dallas Stars, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Los Angeles Kings.
Seems Vancouver is not on his list.

This came from Elliot Freeman who then laughed and said they haven’t been told anything so he was sort of making it up. Then added it’s unlikely he’d go to LA as the Kings just spent a wad on Kovie. So while it might turn out to be accurate it’s not a confirmed list from JT.

Freeman also said he thinks this could go the way Stamkos went, do the interviews but stay put.

I’m with Dude though. I think TO may have the inside track.

As for Vancouver, if he had an interview it would only be a courtesy interview. Just don’t see us as a fit for him. I mean for sure he could step in and instantly be our number one centre. The other teams mentioned that wouldn’t be the case necessarily. So it depends upon how important that is to him.

Love this analysis. Makes you realize the futility of grouping unrelated trades.

Today @ 2:05 PM ET
So basically a 1st round pick, 2 seconds and Ferland and Fox for Lindholm and Hanifin??? That sucks guys. That's a doozie, not Chiarelli bad but ball park.
