  1. Trade 1 To CBJ - Hansen To Van - Rachel, 2016 3rd, 2107 5th Addresses CBJs need for right wingers dealing from a position of strength on the left side. Hansen will slot behind Atkinson and Puljujarvi. CBJ is strong on the left, decent at centre with some potential and have a strong D on paper. Goaltending is a question mark due to inconsistency of last year. Canucks get a couple of picks and a good prospect who is able to go down to the AHL without waivers for 2 more seasons, allowing us to manage our current RFAs and not loose assets. Trade 2 To Toronto - Luca Sbisa To Van - Jeff Cowen, 2016 2nd (From WAS) Re-Signings Baertschi $2,000,000 X 2 Vey $1,200,000 X 1 Etem $1,000,000 X 1 Pedan $850,000 X 1 Signings Jamie McGinn $5,000,000 @4 years Jason Demers $4,500,000 @ 5 years Buyout - Higgins AHL - Burrows, Beiga, Grenier, Rychal We will have about $1,500,000 in cap space and also the ability to recall Burrows as $3,500,000 of his cap is already counted agains it. We will have a young forward group guided by the Sedans and Sutter and our defence is significantly improved. Left Wing Centre Right Wing Sedin, Daniel $7,000,000 LW NMC UFA - 2 Sedin, Henrik $7,000,000 C NMC UFA - 2 McGinn, Jamie $5,000,000 LW UFA Baertschi, Sven $2,000,000 LW RFA Sutter, Brandon $4,375,000 C NTC UFA - 5 Rodin, Anton $950,000 RW RFA - 1 Etem, Emerson $1,000,000 LW, RW RFA Horvat, Bo $894,167 C RFA - 1 Virtanen, Jake $894,167 RW RFA - 2 Gaunce, Brendan $863,333 C RFA - 1 Granlund, Markus $900,000 C RFA - 2 Dorsett, Derek $2,650,000 RW UFA - 3 Vey, Linden $1,200,000 RW, C RFA Left Defense Right Defense Goaltender Edler, Alexander $5,000,000 D NTC UFA - 3 Tanev, Christopher $4,450,000 D UFA - 4 Miller, Ryan $6,000,000 M-NTC UFA - 1 Hutton, Ben $896,250 D RFA - 1 Gudbranson, Erik $3,500,000 D RFA - 1 Markstrom, Jacob $1,550,000 UFA - 1 Tryamkin, Nikita $925,000 D RFA - 1 Demers, Jason $4,500,000 D UFA Pedan, Andrey $850,000 D RFA Cowen, Jared $3,100,000 D RFA - 1
  2. It's odd that you say hammer is a better player than Russell but yet have Russell as our first pairing dman next year and hammer on the third. Kind of contradicts itself
  3. Corrado can't even make a theoretical top 6 of the worst team in the league.
  4. Yes exactly, and you're assuming there wasn't. That's all we can do when we form our opinion. From JBs presser he said they were talking since Friday and just going and forth. Dallas seemed interested in both dmen, part of any job where you are trading commodities is sales. JB had 4 days to sell Hamhuis to the stars and didn't close. ABC's of sales, Always Be Closing. But like I said he should be a better GM in the future for the experience, you learn on the job.
  5. Good essay. I tend to be on this side as well but one thing I think you flew past. Looking at the situation I feel JB was a victor of some inexperience on Monday. My person feeling is he took too long o making decisions (I feel we could have made a decision on Hamhuis days before), spent too long in a slow negotiation and waiting until Monday to make a deal. This deadline has shown for the most part waiting until the last day puts more pressure on the seller and arguablymore value was given in the days leading up. I think JB will learn from this and be bethere in the future. I've liked most of the trades he's made and feel he will do more with his draft picks than Toronto will with twice as many.
  6. Please tell me how is JB going to trade into the top ten when the only trading chips he has are guys with LNTC (VRBATA, BURROWS, HAMMER, HANSEN, MILLER). Rentals at the deadline go to cotending teams not bottom 10 teams.
  7. To NJ - Vrbata and Jensen To Van - Eric Gelinas and 2015 2nd (36th) NJ us rumored to be looking for a top 6 forward and are willing to del Gelinas for it. I think Vrbata has more value but adding in Jensen and a low 2nd evens it out. We get a big youngish (24) dman and a great opportunity with the 2nd rounder
  8. I laughed to hard at this for not being drunk.
  9. This is the 6th best point record the Canucks have EVER had. Which runs are you comparing too.
  10. He only has 2 more points the Dorsett in 1 less game, less physical, less intensity, presumably less leadership as dorsett is always mentioned in that category by brass. Similar age. Matthias is in the category of nice body but what can you do with it....Doesn't play like a big man Should. I like him as a player but shouldn't get more than 2.5per. My fear is we pay him David Booth money and get David Booth production.
  11. Remember when our 4th liners got 10 points a year.....I sure do. Tanner glass has 6 points in 64 games and makes 1.9per. Just saying.
  12. Pfffff....that's only half the team. He wants the whole team GONE!!! Next year we will have Baer cheese and Clendening up which is another two young guys. Change Came.
  13. That's a bleeping shootout move, don't normally see the confidence to do that with a guy chasing you. Very impressive skill set
  14. Specifically for a guy like Sbisa who is worth keeping but maybe not at his qualifying offer i was wondering what the restrictions were for RFA contracts. The qualifying offer would be for one year at $2,900,000 or possibly as low as 85% of that if I'm not mistaken, which is $2,465,000. My question is if there are any restrictions to signing an RFA at a longer term contract for less than this figure ei. 4 years at $2mil per. Im assuming it would just mean signing before the qualifying offer deadline. Can someone please confirm
  15. For those saying its a bit high maybe look at it as paying for this year too. He is getting paid $2m this year, if you add that to his contract and add another year it is a $4/year contract over 6 years. I know it doesn't work like that for cap space but in terms of real money he's earned it.
