In this post, we are just gonna post some of the dumbest trades on HF Boards no matter what team
We are gonna start off with a Penguins-Maple Leafs trade.
Starbucks and a 2nd Round Pick
DO IT SHERO.
In all seriousness, here are some of the best, and by best, we mean dumbest, trades on the HF Boards.
Lets start out with our friends down in our Nations Capital.
Yevgeni Kuznetsov, Braden Holtby, 2014 1st Round
First of all, why would anyone actually want Ryan Miller? Second, why in the fuck would the Capitals trade Braden Holtby who has actually been a solid goalie in DC.
Now lets look at a Western Conference deal.
Jamie Benn, Brett Ritchie
Sam Gagner, Jordan Eberle, Jeff Petry
I assume this guy was a Stars fan (I didn't know they existed). But not sure how this deal benefits the Oilers at all. The Stars are also only giving up 1 good player and getting 3 in return, this is obviously not the Dallas way.
Dion Phaneuf, Nazeem Kadri, Mark Fraser, 2014 2nd
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Ladislav Smid
Uhhh, I'm not sure Toronto wants to give up Kadri and I highly doubt that Edmonton is dealing RNH any time soon. Pretty stupid trade, IMO but it was obviously made by a Leafs fan so we're just surprised Nikolai Kulemin wasn't involved, although this isn't between the Penguins and Leafs.
Cody Franson, 1st Round Pick
Why in the hell would the Canadiens trade their best player to their arch-rivals? This makes absolutely no sense and not sure why people on the internet even exist.
Tyler Myers, 2014 2nd Round Pick
Not one of the dumbest trades that I've ever seen, but Buffalo kinda needs Tyler Myers to keep Ryan Miller from going completely emo.
And let's end this with our friends from across the state.
Tomas Pleckanec, Travis Moen, Nathan Beaulieu
Wayne Simmonds, Braydon Coburn, Max Talbot
As bad as this trade is, its definitely a move that Paul Holmgren would do.
We know this was somewhat of a weak post, but we haven't done one in awhile and we wanted to show what some of the stupid deals that happen with other teams on the HF Boards. It's a good thing some of these guys aren't GM's.
