  1. I'd say a 2nd or a team's 3rd or 4th best/most redundant almost NHL ready prospect is around where Tanev's value is considering he misses 20+ games a season. Benning can argue that well on a better team where he's not having to log such brutal minutes he'll be more durable, but then you can't ask for the same return that you could if he was a durable heavy minute top-pairing guy. Maybe his value increases at the trade deadline... if Tanev survives that far. I just don't expect a return anywhere near the return that the Larsson trade seemed to imply for Tanev.
  2. I don't see how we land Nylander for Tanev (I am not a fan of Nylander's game anyhow - he's gutless). I think Tanev is worth a Kapanen or a Dermott and a 2nd or 3rd round pick. I'd rather have a less skilled but grittier player that can still play top 6 like Kapanen anyhow.
  3. [Rumour] Oilers actively shopping Milan Lucic

    If it's similar contract for contract to a US city, maybe it's: St. Louis - Steen for Lucic Columbis - Foligno But I don't see how these trades help Edmonton out of their cap problem now.
  4. [Proposal] Dallas-Van

    If Dallas does get Tavares, they would definitely like to shed Spezza's contract, but maybe something like this: To Dallas Tanev+4th To Vancouver Spezza+Honka+2nd That gives Dallas Lindell-Kling and then Heiskanen-Tanev & Methot-Johns. I think Dallas is still very much excited about Honka's ability to be another puck mover and creator to give them more of an attack when Kling isn't on the ice, but landing Tavares might put them in enough of a win now mode that they move talent for more experienced stability while giving Heiskanen a great D partner. I don't know if Dallas would be interested in any of the forwards we'd want to give up.
  5. Who are the bottom 10 teams in 2018 - 2019 (Discussion)

    Bottom 10 last season: Carolina NYI Edmonton NYR Chicago Vancouver Detroit Montreal Arizona Ottawa Buffalo Of that list, I'd say Chicago, Edmonton and NYI have the best shots at making it out. Maybe Rangers. Candidates to fall: St. Louis Blues NJD Las Vegas Minnesota Wild Chicago, Carolina, Edmonton, NYI and NYR are all probably bubble teams. They could all be 90+ points teams if things go right, or 75 point teams if they don't. And there's not a lot of teams to pick from to fall. Calgary, St. Louis and Dallas could've been playoff teams and should be just as good next year. Same in the east with teams like Florida. I'll put Vancouver with Buffalo and Ottawa as battling it out for last. If there's one suddenly surprisingly good team on that list, I'll say Arizona.
  6. [Waivers] Alex Burrows

    Retire 44
  7. [Waivers] Alex Burrows

    I think it’s pretty clear after all of the debate this has sparked: Take Naslund’s 19 down from the rafters.
  8. [Waivers] Alex Burrows

    You know, you can retire Burrow's number 14 without him having to be better than Naslund. Naslund not as good or as important as Pavel Bure, but we retired 19.
  9. [Waivers] Alex Burrows

    I think retiring of numbers is more than just how good someone was at hockey. I think it's a nod to what that player meant to the franchise and the fans during their time. To me, there will never be another number 14 in Vancouver that will mean what Alex Burrows meant to the city. Now I was only half-joking about Naslund. Naslund no doubt a more skilled and productive regular season player that helped turn the franchise around at its lowest point in a decade. BUT... Burrows still has more playoff goals.
  10. [Waivers] Alex Burrows

    I dunno... How many game 7 OT winners or Stanley Cup Finals OT game winners did Naslund score?
  11. [Waivers] Alex Burrows

    14 hanging from the rafters?
  12. [Waivers] Alex Burrows

    One day contract.
  13. Chicago has Edjsell and Sikura knocking on the door, and you could make a case for Hayden to make the team too.
  14. By not qualifying him they can negotiate with him without him having arbitration rights. So given his playoff performance they're hoping to avoid him being given an award they'd walk away from anyhow. So really it's just a way to keep his value a true negotiation.
  15. What ufa's should we go after?

    Sounds like Duclair isn't going to get qualified by the Hawks, so he might be a guy to sign for a year and be a stop-gap/challenge some of these kids for a spot.
