  1. (proposal) playoff hockey 2017

    next time use my whole quote, just dont take lil snippets to help your weak arguement " I want to make the playoffs every year and have a chance to win the Stanley Cup" " NHL is all about younger players, in order to have playoffs every year you must have a younger crop of players coming in" making the playoffs every yer is a long term goal we need picks toobesides this team is younger then last years. dorsett+burrows+hansen+sbisa are older then Lucic+Martin+eriksson+ehroff It's pretty simple, continue to draft and develop as best you can, fill holes through free agency as it makes sense.

    Higgins and vey dont count they are dead weight I took away 3 forwards and 1 dman and added 3 forwards and 1 dman why trade for pics -New NHL is all about younger players, in order to have playoffs every year you must have a younger crop of players coming in.( slowest trade deadline ever last season, even hamuis and Vrbata had no value) - the current Gm is great at drafting, use his skill set -This roster has 8 dman - this roster is to start the season, trade deadline is when you try to get depth from teams not making the playoffs. -trading away sbisa to make room for younger Dmen, the top 4 is set. brought in erhoff for insurance. and benning signed some collage dmen as insurance on the farm

    eradicate depth???..... I signed Martin and Erhoff, brought in a 30+ scorer in Erikkson and an all arounder in Lucic. no depth lost what so ever I think benning brought in guys like Dorsett , sbisa, Vey , and Etem because he knows regardless he can dump them for mid round pics when he wants to if they dont fit into his plans. Dorsett and sbisa's contracts are to high, we can get better depth at those prices or similar players for cheaper. there are other teams who are desperate for defense. and have to reach the cap minimum Burrows, Hansen, Dorsett, Vey, Higgins < Lucic, Erikkson, Martin, Ehroff
  4. I dont agree with rebuilding (loosing now to win later). Athletes play to win. I want to make the playoffs every year and have a chance to win the Stanley Cup, rather then have a better chance at #1 overall every year. -Lucic comes home, his childhood dream is to wear a canucks jersey -Lui Eriksson joins his fellow swedes to play for swedens favorite NHL team, and gives him a chance to stack his stats playing with the sedins. -Matt Martin is built for western conference hockey. The definition on Meat and Potatoes, definitely a prototype jim benning player -Ehrhoff is a veteran Dman with experience, that can go in and out of the lineup, PP specialist and has proven chemistry with the sedins, definently an upgrade on Yannik Webber.
