Blockbuster trades

Any favorites over the years?

There are still lots of trades in the NHL but not many that I would call 'blockbusters'.

One trade from the early '60's I was looking at was this one...

Quote:
The Habs traded Donnie Marshall, Phil Goyette and Jacques Plante to the Rangers in exchange for Dave Balon, Leon Rochefort, Len Ronson and Gump Worsley, June 4th, 1963.
Two of the top 6 goalers in the league as well as some other interesting names. It worked out well for the Habs. Plante retired after two years before later making a strong comeback.

One thing that I did not remember about Plante...He won the starting goaler spot with the expansion Oakland Seals but could not come to contract terms and never played for them that year.

It was on this day in 1992 that the Flyers traded for Eric Lindros


On this date in 1992, the Flyers traded Ron Hextall, Steve Duchesne, Kerry Huffman, Mike Ricci, Peter Forsberg, Chris Simon, first round picks in the 1993 and 1994 NHL Entry Drafts and $15 million to the Quebec Nordiques in exchange for the rights to center Eric Lindros just prior to the NHL Entry Draft.

A ten player trade, I would call a blockbuster for sure.

That looks heavily weighted in the Leafs favour. The Flames seemed to disassemble their Cup team within a few years. Alot of talented players played in Calgary in the late 1980's.

Gary Leeman's career seem to down hill after his 50 goal season.

One from the late '60's...

Toronto traded Frank Mahovlich to Detroit with Pete Stemkowski, Garry Unger and the rights to Carl Brewer for Norm Ullman, Paul Henderson, Floyd Smith and Doug Barrie, March 3, 1968.

Ullman, Henderson and Smith were an entire line...and a good one. The Big M didn't stay too long with the Wings but he did score 49 goals with them one year (his best).

On of my favs is-

To New Jersey-Jeff Friesen, Oleg Tverdovsky, Maxim Balmochynk

To Anaheim-Petr Sykora, Mike Commodore, J-F Damphousse, Igor Pohanka


Combined with the Ozolinsh and Niedermayer trades, we upgraded off every guy we traded in those three.

Feb 19, 92 - Philadelphia Flyers traded Kjell Samuelsson, Rick Tocchet, Ken Wregget and 3rd round selection (Dave Roche) in 1993 to the Pittsburgh Penguins for Mark Recchi, Brian Benning and 1st round selection (previously acquired from the Los Angeles Kings - Jason Bowen).

A good deal both ways but especially for the Pens short term. Recchi played well in his two stints with the Flyers and netted them Leclair and Desjardins in the deal with the Habs. Samuelsson, Tocchet and Wregget helped the Pens win alot of games and a cup.

Close but I'm pretty sure Jeff Reese was the goalie the Leafs sent over- not Peter Ing.

And yes that's definitely a blockbuster. It was the biggest trade in NHL history at the time (10 players) and I'm pretty certain that it still is.

Correct

02-Jan-92:

Toronto Maple Leafs traded Craig Berube, Alexander Godynyuk, Gary Leeman, Michel Petit and Jeff Reese to the Calgary Flames for Doug Gilmour, Jamie Macoun, Ric Nattress, Rick Wamsley and Kent Manderville.

The Eric Lindos trade involved 9 players & Cash

30-Jun-92:

Philadelphia Flyers traded Ron Hextall, Peter Forsberg, Steve Duchesne, Kerry Huffman, Mike Ricci, Chris Simon, 1st round selection (Jocelyn Thibault) in 1993, 1st round selection, later traded to the Washington Capitals - Nolan Baumgartner) in 1994 and cash to the Quebec Nordiques for Eric Lindros.

Calgary trades Theoren Fleury and Chris Dingman to Colorado for Rene Corbet, Wade Belak, a player to be named later (Robyn Regehr) and a conditional draft pick (Jarret Stoll).

Calgary had the option of taking any Avs prospect except for Alex Tanguay (the decision came down to Regehr or Skoula). \

----

Colorado trades Adam Deadmarsh, Aaron Miller, Jared Aulin a 2002 1st Round Draft Pick (Dave Steckel) and a 2003 1st Round Draft Pick (Brian Boyle) for Rob Blake and Steven Reinprecht. (i'm pretty sure I got this right).

I know the second first rounder (maybe both) were conditional on Blake re-signing.

One of the strangest in NHL history happened in 1975 ..

Marcel Dionne wasn't happy with the Detroit Red Wings, and in June 1975, was signed as a free agent by the Los Angeles Kings. In doing so, Marcel became the first NHL player to leave his team in such a way. But the NHL insisted that an equitable trade take place, so the Kings sent Terry Harper, Dan Maloney and a second round draft choice ( Reed Larson ) to Detroit for Dionne and Bart Crashley.
