  1. Well admittedly there are quite a few transactions that could be made to give the Canucks cap room but as it sits right now we have 5 million in cap space. Boeser most likely will not sign for 5 million. Something has to give...
  2. Obviously showing some hustle would make a huuuge difference. But the reality is we cannot sign Boeser with him on the books so he has to go...
  3. I would move Sutter in a heartbeat. Guy can work the dot for sure but his acceleration makes him a lack luster defender for our bottom six. I think with horvat and beagle we can manage the faceoff workload unless they get injured...
  4. Most important to me has always been the goalie, secondly your shutdown faceoff guy and then your #1 center/playmaker followed closely by your best shutdown defender.
  5. Career .42 ppg and a career + player. Big enough not to get manhandled like most of our defensemen and should help during playoffs wearing down opposing forwards. To be honest I haven't watched him play much but his stats seem to put him in a good light. Never a fan of analytics myself so I don't really care what those stats indicate... Hard to complain about this signing.
  6. Either way you slice it this is a very very risky move for the Canucks in our current stage of rebuilding, this is not a contender looking to push itself over the top... We are a young team with a good chance to be a lottery team for a few years. If the Canucks end up pulling an Ottawa and give the lightning a #4 overall draft pick it's lights out for Benning if you ask me...
  7. No way the avs give up on Barrie... Unless he isn't happy with something... 14 goals and 59 points... Would you trade him?
  8. Sure that's what they want... you play hardball... if they will not give up a top six player you move on. Other teams needing bottom six players can "help" them.
  9. Weaponizing cap space is for teams with zero prospects and are desperate to land some sort of talent by taking on a cap hit. We are not in this position... if you want to weaponize cap space, sign a good player to actually make a difference on the ice. I am more of a proponent of taking advantage of teams in cap hell by taking a useful player off their hands not a bum... If they don't like it they can pay the cap penalties...

  11. Draft picks are a gamble even at #4. As for the premise... why trade a blue chip prospect to draft a different blue chip prospect... kinda a lateral move and a step backwards. Unless you think boeser is a bust... .... Also you just don't trade a known commodity for an unknown commodity imho. The concept that you sign panarin to replace boeser and gain a free pick is legit but if you ask me your idea works better if you sign panarin and KEEP boeser. Less risk imho... You pay too much to move up in the draft.
  12. Why the heck do we want Sam Bennett? Really... Why?
  13. Well I cant see Pittsburgh doing that for cap reasons... if they are looking to move Kessel purely for cap reasons. As for the trade... If you could get a kessel for those three players you are doing your franchise a service. As much as kessel gets flack for playing a lazy 100 foot game he puts up points that's for sure. Not that I want a guy like kessel on our team.
  14. Goldy for burakovsky is a wash... they both are looking like busts and do not have the ability to re invent themselves as bottom six players. You are giving away gaudette and tryamkin for nothing...
