    With the Bruins, it looks like Lucic is the biggest star that's most likely going to be heading elsewhere. Word is that they're looking to see what they can get in return for Chara as well.

    I'm kind of excited what Edmonton might be able to do next season if they can get their shit together. With McDavid and the strong possibility of them getting Cam Talbot, they could build a quality team. Also read that they might be looking to get Dougie Hamilton from Boston as well.

    Haven't seen any Rangers rumors other than St. Louis not returning (and possibly looking to go to Montreal). I don't really see the need to mix up the team much. We supposedly have 2 or 3 AHL level players that have a good possibility of making the team this year. I believe the two names I've heard are Oscar Lindberg and Dylan McIlrath.

    And then there's good ol' Toronto trying to figure out where they can send Kessel and Phaneuf. My favorite line that I've read is that the Bruins will not want Kessel because he has the same thirst for fitness as "your typical hockey writer".

    Maybe the league will move Chicago to the East so the Wild don't have to play them again in the playoffs.

    The last 8 summers or so have been the most interesting time of year for us Oiler faithful.

    This summer promises to be no different, but I'm hoping that we'll head into a new season with real change, and real optimism.

    For anyone who watches the Flames (well, me and Miro), it's hard to overstate the importance of the Flames new deal with Mikael Backlund. The guy is a possession beast and good for 40+ points when healthy. This is Trevlings 2nd fantastic signing, the first being the long-term contract for TJ Brodie. Makes up for the Engelland signing and Bollig trade.

    Next up, sign Bouma and Ferland and make a splash at the draft.

    T.J. Oshie Trade from Blues to Capitals a Possibility?

    by Glynn Cosker | June 22, 2015


    Ever since Washington Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan told the media that he was in the market for a new top-six forward during the offseason, speculation has mounted as to who would arrive in D.C. to complete the GM’s plan. Is the St. Louis Blues’ T.J. Oshie a possible trade candidate?

    T.J.Oshie – One of the Blues’ dispensable core players (Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports)
    In recent weeks, a couple of strong players were rumored to be possible trade options including Toronto’s Phil Kessel and Chicago’s Patrick Sharp. Of those two, a Sharp trade deal is the most likely scenario – but an Oshie deal is not as farfetched as one might think.

    The 28-year-old right wing has no trade protection in his current deal with the Blues – a five-year contract with two years left at an average of $4.175 million per year. Blues general manager Doug Armstrong recently revealed that he was willing to deal some of his ‘core players’ – talk that often accompanies a season that promised a lot but fizzled out in the postseason.



    Oshie is a consistent goal scorer, with neither a poor nor remarkable NHL season on his books. He usually tallies right around 20 goals per season, give or take a couple. Perhaps that kind of consistency is just what the Capitals need since some of their forwards have endured up-and-down seasons.

    Lately, Washington has put Joel Ward on the first line alongside the outstanding center Nicklas Backstrom and superstar left wing Alex Ovechkin. Down on the second line, we’ve seen Jason Chimera or Troy Brouwer.

    Ward will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, will ask for a long-term contract to finish his career in Washington, he won’t get it and will ultimately get snapped up by a needy team. That opens up a slot for a top-six forward, although Ward’s elevated position was quite flattering in 2014-15. Ward had a good season, but he’s no career first-liner – or even second-liner. Oshie would be a welcome addition at right wing.

    So, if a deal for Oshie was to materialize, what would it involve? There are a few scenarios involving draft picks and prospects but I see a viable solution in Brooks Laich.

    The 31-year-old Laich is coming off two disappointing seasons for the Capitals by his standards, but he’s certainly worth the $4.5 million per year left on the remaining two years of his contract and has at least three to five more good years on the clock. He’s a center, but he’s extremely versatile and has no problem switching to the right wing. There is a slight difference in their salaries, but a deal could easily be reached between the two general managers.

    An Ovi-Backstrom-Oshie first line would produce goals. Oshie is used to playing alongside goal-scoring center David Backes in St. Louis. Washington’s ‘Backs’ is an unselfish helper—one of the best ever in the NHL—and would have the added advantage of supplying the puck to a right wing who can score.

    Laich’s career has stalled, but it’s by no means over. He’s shown that he can score clutch goals and he’s a team player. However, I believe it’s time for him to move on. The Capitals can easily find a player to slot into Laich’s current center role and Laich should see a trade to St. Louis as a tactical career move. He’s unlikely to see much ice time in Washington next year as a bottom-six center. He’s versatile enough to play on either wing and could excel with another team if given the chance.

    A new top-six forward will shirt up for the Capitals on opening day. Will it be Oshie? Maybe. But let’s not forget the other teams that would love Oshie … the Pittsburgh Penguins chief among them.

    The best hockey player on the earth, Carey Price!!!!! 4 awards in one night! Amazing, including the Hart and Vezina. Which was last won by another Montreal Canadiens goalie, Jose Theodore. I watched a lot of Canadiens hockey this year, and Carey really did play out of this world in the regular season.

    Best Hockey player? That is pretty debatable. He sure did get a lot of REGULAR SEASON awards. Those will look nice on his mantle.

    Next year Carey might want to go after some different trophies. Maybe the Conn Smythe or the Stanley Cup? I hear they are pretty cool to.

    Could be several trades happening today.

    This one is done per TSN: The Ottawa Senators traded goaltender Robin Lehner and forward David Legwand to the Buffalo Sabres on Friday in exchange for the 21st overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

    NYR could deal a goalie (Talbot) as could the LAK (Jones) or even VAN (Lack).

    Some big rumors about PHX trading the #3 pick. Also some Bruins rumors about Lucic and Doug Hamilton.

    The Calgary Flames have acquired young defenceman Dougie Hamilton from the Boston Bruins, according to multiple reports.

    It wasn't immediately known what the Bruins received in return.

    Hamilton, 22, had 10 goals and 32 assists in 42 games last season, his third in the NHL.

    WOW!!!

    Dougie Hamilton is a good Dman. He is RFA though. Calgary better have a ton of $$$$ ready to sign him.
