They gotta make room for Vinny Lecavalier and his contract.

Hoffman traded. Guess they decided to move on from that drama.

The Ottawa Senators have acquired forward Mikkel Boedker, defenceman Julius Bergman and a 2020 6th rounder from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for forward Mike Hoffman, defenceman Cody Donaghy and a 2020 5th rounder.

Simmons is a damned good player, but he’s on the backside of his productive years. The good news is he’s not overpaid and he only has one year left on his deal.

Panarin is awesome. Super awesome. He’s younger than Simmons. He’s also a guy you want to sign to an extension if you can, but it would be freaking expensive.

Tanev? Meh.

Simmonds is only 29. This should be his prime, assuming he can stay healthy.

Panarin proved pretty conclusively last season that he wasn't just a passenger on Kane's line. I'd take him in a heartbeat.

I hate to break it to you, but 29 is on the downside. 24-28 are the prime years now.

It's a bit older for a defenseman, but that he ain't.

Also, I hate to break this to you, but the 'd' does not belong on the end of his name. It's really out of place. You read it as "Simmons" but then ... wTF? There's a 'd' there? *f-bomb* that noise.

Simmonds is also going to be 30 when the season starts. He's also been a very physical player, which never helps with longevity. The thing is that talk only matters if you're thinking about extending him. I'd worry about giving him another five seasons at big dollars for a dude in his 30s who took one hell of a beating with the style he plays.

If this is only about trading to get one year from him, then I'm not so worried about it. Hell, his contract is actually ideal for a team looking to go for it this season because his salary is higher than his cap hit. With a cap hit of just under $4 million, he's pretty cheap as impact wingers go. I guess it comes down to what you'd have to give up to get him. As barren as the farm system is, what do you offer the Flyers?

Dreger shares trade thoughts on Reinhart and Ristolainen
“I had heard that Anaheim had interest in Ristolainen. I’d be a little surprised if the Edmonton Oilers didn’t have interest in Ristolainen. You could probably come up with a list of 8 or 10 teams, just again projecting the type of player he’s projecting becoming when he hits full stride as a veteran NHL guy.
“But that’s another deal where Botterill has got to feel real comfortable that he’s on the winning side, otherwise he doesn’t make it.”


Multiple sources have confirmed to The Athleticthat Phil Kessel, while perfectly willing to remain with the Penguins, isn’t opposed to a trade that would end his time in Pittsburgh.


Chances are that if the Rangers make a substantial move leading into Friday’s first round of the entry draft in Dallas, it will involve Kevin Hayes. Multiple sources report the 26-year-old impending Group II free-agent center has attracted significant interest from around the league as general manager Jeff Gorton sifts through various scenarios both connected to and independent of improving the club’s ninth-overall position.

According to reports the Flyers are looking for a right shot defenseman. Maybe a deal around Johns+Shore/Ritchie?
Skinner from Carolina is also available, but he's such a huge risk with his concussion history.

I was in MTL when this trade happened and I took great joy in watching everyone lose their goddamned minds.

The Habs need Centres, to score more goals, and to get bigger =
Domi is another Winger, scored 9 goals last year (4 of them were empty netters), and is smaller.

The Habs already had 9 million in unused cap space last season.
Domi has 36 career goals, Galchenyuk had 30 goals in one season once ...

I hope that Bargainbin is their GM forever.

I think Domi can be a good player, but this trade makes no sense.

Speaking of terrible trades, one thing to consider is that the Sens traded Hoffman to San Jose, which is geographically the furthest away NHL city from Ottawa, only to have the Sharks flip him right back to the Atlantic division (for a better return too) ...

I don't think the Sens will be doing San Jose any favours for a looooong time LOL.

I also hear Ryan O'reilly is available. How about Johns +Shore and Spezza? I don't know that Buffalo would do it, but I know most Stars fans would in a heartbeat. The Spezza and Oreilly salaries are the same, so moneywise its a wash, but Buffalo only has to deal with it for one more year with Spezza, then they can plug one of their prospects in his spot. The Stars just take on the same money for a couple of more years. Definitly solves 2C problem.

The Capitals wouldn't pay him $5MM/year for 5 years. I can't decide if that was a good decision or not.

Babcock makes about 6.25 million per year. Sure, Trotz won the cup this year and his teams are usually pretty competitive. Not sure if he is worth 5, though.

Despite the internal conflicts, I think this is an insane idea on the level of Chiarelli. Karlsson is Zubov-level good.
