Islanders get Boychuk from Boston.


from nhl.com:

The New York Islanders acquired defenseman Johnny Boychuk from the Boston Bruins on Saturday for three draft picks.

The Bruins will receive second-round picks in 2015 and 2016, as well as a conditional third-round pick in 2015. They would acquire the conditional 2015 third-round choice if New York trades Boychuk during the 2014-15 season to an Eastern Conference team.

The 2015 second-round pick was acquired by the Islanders from the Philadelphia Flyers on March 4 for defenseman Andrew MacDonald.

Boychuk, 30, had five goals, 23 points, 45 penalty minutes and was plus-31 in 75 games for the Bruins last season. At 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, he adds size to the Islanders' defensive corps.

He can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2014-15 season.

The trade gives Boston more salary-cap flexibility. Boychuk carries a salary-cap charge of $3,366,667 for this season, with an actual salary of $3,600,000. Before the trade, the Bruins were more than $3.6 million over the salary cap, according to CapGeek, though they can place center Marc Savard on the long-term injury list and remove his $4.027,143 salary from their cap.

Chicago's Nick Leddy also to the Island, for prospects, not picks.

Wow - the Islanders really improved their blueline in the last couple of hours.

Now I've got a bit of a dilema - I have both Boychuk and Leddy on one of my Fantasy Hockey teams. Do I keep one or both of them ????  They'll both probably get more PP time in NY but I generally don't like have 2 Defensemen from the same NHL team on my Fantasy teams.

By the way - here are the 3 players that Chicago picked up from the Islanders for Leddy:


Ville Pokka ( Defense ) Islanders 2nd round pick ( 34th overall ) in 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Jumped from 12 points in 2012-13 to 27 points in 2013-14 while playing in Finland.

Anders Nilsson ( Goalie ) Islanders 3rd round pick ( 62nd overall ) in 2009 NHL Entry Draft. Currently playing in the KHL.

T.J. Brennan ( Defense ) Buffalo's 2nd round pick ( 31st overall ) in 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Nothing to see here - career AHLer now with his 6th NHL organization.

If you're more worried about points, keep Leddy.

Boychuk likely rates higher in more categories, though, all I know is that Leddy was ok on the 2nd PP in Chicago and will likely get 1st PP minutes in New York.

Fan of Ville Pokka. The Isles did really well and might actually be going for a playoff spot

If Halak gives them solid goaltending they are going to the playoffs IMO.  Low seed, 7th maybe but still in.

Considering Brennan is a throw in and Nilsson may very well not come back from the KHL unless he's guaranteed an NHL job The Islanders did well here.  Pokka is skilled but unproven.

If Tavares is healthy and Kulemin/Grabovski click together like they have in the past and the young guys like Lee, Strome and Nelson produce this could be an interesting team to follow for the first time in awhile.

With Boston Boychuk was behind Chara and Krug in the offensive scheme of things.  Not to mention Hamilton forcing himself into that picture as well.

With the Islanders Boychuk will be competing with Hamonic, Leddy and the ever injured Visnovsky.
If you truly don't want to keep both Leddy may have the higher trade value based on his age as many GM's in fantasy are all about the babies.

You could put them both on the block and see which brings you the highest return.

Chicago included a Goalie prospect in the deal. Kent Simpson was Chicago's 2nd round pick ( 58th overall ) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He went 11-14 last season with Rockford ( AHL ) with a 3.64 GAA and an .891 Sv Pct.

I think the fact that Scott Darling did so well in pre season made Simpson expendable.  Darling in Leighton will be in Rockford and Mac Carruth a once highly thought of prospect in the Chicago system ticketed for the ECHL.

Montreal traded G Peter Budaj to Winnipeg.


from tsn.ca:

The Winnipeg Jets acquired goaltender Peter Budaj and forward Patrick Holland from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for forward Eric Tangradi on Sunday.

Budaj is a veteran of nine NHL seasons with the Colorado Avalanche and Canadiens. He played in 296 NHL games between the two clubs, compiling a 124-107-36 record with a 2.76 goals against average, .903 save percentage, and 11 career shutouts. His most recent season in Montreal saw him collect a 10-8-3 record with a 2.51 goals against average and .909 save percentage.

The 32-year-old was originally drafted by the Avalanche in the second round, 63rd overall, of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

Holland is entering his third pro season after spending his previous two with the Canadiens' AHL affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs. The Lethbridge, AB, native made his NHL debut on Oct. 22, 2013 in Montreal versus the Edmonton Oilers. He has yet to record a point through five career NHL games.

Holland was originally drafted by the Calgary Flames in the seventh round, 193rd overall, of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Tangradi was placed on waivers by the Jets on Friday. He had three goals and six points in 55 games last season, and has five goals and 15 points in 136 NHL games with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Jets.

A native of Philadelphia, PA, the 25-year-old was selected in the second round, 42nd overall, by the Anaheim Ducks at the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to joining the Jets, he suited up with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Forward Ryan Johansen has signed a $12-million, three-year deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets after missing all of training camp without a contract.

Johansen will make $3-million in each of the next two seasons and then $6-million in 2016-17, according to agent Kurt Overhardt. The cap hit of the contract is $4-million a year.

The 22-year-old will be a restricted free agent at the end of this contract, and the $6-million salary in the final year sets up his next deal favourably.

Johansen, the fourth overall pick in the 2010 draft, broke out with 33 goals and 30 assists last season.

It's not exactly like seeing Orr in a Chicago jersey or Bourque in a Colorado jersey but as a Bruins fan this just doesn't seem right to me:
