    Go after Manson or Lindholm for Stetcher, Gaudette and Woo with Ducks picking up salary for only this season as either player has 2 more years at 4.1 for Manson and 5.2 for Lindholm which will replace Tanev next year at an affordable price. 

    Canucks are going to let Stetcher walk anyways as there are younger cheaper options for 6th defenseman in Utica, Gaudette can be replaced by Madden, Focht or Costmar and Woo is an acceptable loss with Rathbone, Juelovi are making the jump in the next few years. Prospects are also supposed to be used as ammunition to get a better player and not just horded until they flame out or have a breakout season. 

    Oh man if we could get Lindholm in a Canucks Jersey..but barring an overpayment the Ducks never even consider it.

    Pretty sure Tryamkin will sign here in March. He was able to play a offensive and this year, a defensive role in Russia and performed in the top 3 in Vancouver in his rookie and only season, tops in fights, +/- and shutting down the opposition's best players. He never got pushed around. Adds "space" for the skill players and will be cheap. They should try to get him signed for Gudbranson money. He and Fantenberg make Tanev available for growing the future.


    Stecher could be a throw in to move one of the elephant contracts, Stecher, retention and Eriksson for a bad contract in return and LTIR type deal although I am certain this loop hole will be closed next CBA. 


    Stech and Guad for Risto would be a good deal, defense wins championships.

    except Stetcher is better at defense than Risto is lol

  4. If we are at the top of the division a day before the deadline, I propose the following:


    Canucks trade

    Stetcher, Madden, 2nd in 2021 to ANA for Rickard Rakell

    (Rakell can move up and down the line up, play C, RW, and LW - ANA may need more but we could add depending on what it is)


    Canucks Trade

    Baertschi to PIT for a 4th round pick

    (If they are unable to land Hall, Kredier, etc then Baertschi is good option for thier top 9 heading into the playoffs)


    Canucks trade

    Goldobin and 4th round pick (PIT) in 2021 to MTL for Kovalchuk

    (Vanek like return for MTL, we get a top 6 winger who could produce some magic w/ Pettersson and Miller)



    Canucks trade

    Tanev w/ extension in place to PHI for Gostisbehere

    (Tanev moves closer to home, PHI gets a shutdown defenseman and Vancouver gets another mobile offensive defenseman that adds more speed to our slow backend to help with our transition game - he likely finds his offensive game here in Vancouver)



    Miller Pettersson Kovalchuk

    Pearson Horvat Boeser

    Rakell Gaudette Virtanen

    Roussel Beagle Sutter





    Edler Gostisbehere

    Hughes Myers

    Trymakin/Fantenberg/Benn Rafferty



  5. I like the idea of Tanev for Barrie with both returning home. TML will not be able to afford Barrie at the 7 but may be able to get Tanev done at 5. For the Canucks that's a difference of 2 million we would need to make room for. Barrie's ask will be 8, not necessarily what he will get though. I think he's around the 6.5-7.5 range personally but hoping hed be willing to a take a hometown discount to come to and stay in Vancouver.


    I expect Juolevi, Woo, Rafferty, Trymakin to be our two way defenseman that could potentially offset the loss of a shutdown guy like Tanev. I think with the way the game has progressed and continues to progress, it would be worthwhile to have 2 offensive defenseman that could move the puck. Just look at how much Hughes has helped this year with our zone exits and entry.


    I could see


    Tanev and a prospect for Barrie. We move out Stetcher, Goldobin, Baertschi and one of Benn or Faantenberg to give us the cap flexibility to get this done. In a years time, we resign Sutter as our 4th line center. Send out Beagle and Schaller and try to keep Roussell and Motte. Sign Leivo to a two year extension. Trade Ferland this off season or next trade deadline and usher in Podk and Hoglander.


    2022 Season


    Miller Pettersson Virtanen (skill, skill and more skill)

    Pearson Horvat Boeser (Defensively responsible, can play a heavier play style and still have Boeser for that extra added finesse)

    Hoglander Gaudette Podkolzin (tenacious, relentless forecheck)

    Roussel Sutter Motte (PK, Checking line that plays a sound two-way defensively responsible game but has the ability to pop in a few from time to time)

    Well problem with that is ristlo and Myers play the same style and need a more stay a home d partner like elder. 

    Hughes is the future and we need a mean right handed D man to play with Hughes , like I said in theory that's almost perfect pairing , balance wise. 

    Also Weber is good cause his cost controlled and the way he plays when his cap hit becomes a problem he will problem go on Ltir. 

    Why against trading Brock ? I would say Forsberg is an up grade( forsberg can skate)

    also Forsberg is cost controlled too.

    buffalo is closer to minnie isn't it?

    I disagree that Forsberg is better than Brock. Brock now, arguable has a more complete game and has 43 points in 46 games. Also, don't think Forsberg is all that much "cost controlled". He has a cap hit of 6 mill for two more seasons. Not much of a difference between the two when talking about contracts.  


    I don't understand the need/desire to trade Boeser. He has 43 points in 46 games. He has chemistry with Miller, Petterson, and Horvat allowing him to move between the top lines. We don't really have an over abundance of PPG wingers on this team. Some of you are putting way too much stock in to Hoglander and Podkolzin.


    The only thing I would trade Boeser for is a young top pairing dman, otherwise Im keeping him for the long haul.


    Also HELL NO to trading Pearson. He is on pace for 60 points, plays well with Horvat, has the ability to play physical and has a caphit of 3.75 for one more year.



    Keep BOESER

    Keep PEARSON



    If you want to move someone move Sutter, Baertschi, Goldobin, Leivo, MacEwan, etc.


  7. Whilst we have an established legit #1 line in Miller, Petey, and Boes our biggest hole remains a top 6 winger to compliment Horvat. Leivo and Pearson have done an admirable job this year but neither of them can be considered top 6 players in the long run.


    What would it take to get Chris Kreider out of NYR or would it better to persuade him during the free season. He has topped out at 53 points but plays a hard, gritty game with pace and has the tools to be an all around playmaker/scorer that can create space for Horvat.


    He is a free agent at the end of this year and don't think NYR wants him back or that he would want to return whilst they are rebuilding. Nevertheless, they wont be letting him go for free


    Rafferty/Rathbone/Lind (all are progressing well and have been having good seasons for far)

    Goldobin (can join their glut of Russian prospects)

    3rd round pick in 2020 (2nd rounder if we make the Stanley Cup finals lol)


    Does this get it done? Is it better just to wait and take our chance in FA and hope no one outbids us? 25-27.5million/5 years would be good value to extend him prior to July 1, 2019


    Future Lineup


    Miller Petey Boeser

    Kreider Horvat Virtanen

    Podkolzin Gaudette Hoglander

    Roussel ???? MacEwan


  8. I'm hopeful that our lineup in 2 years will look pretty much filled with some of our prospects developing into solid fulltime NHL'ers. Its a little optimistic but I only see the 4th line center position as not being quite filled. However, a defensive face-off specialist could be had through trade or FA. I'm not very high on Lind making the team nor am I am confident in Gaudette progressing as a center.


    Miller Petterson Hoglander

    Podkolzin Horvat Boeser

    Virtanen Madden Gaudette

    Ferland ???? MacEwan


    Hughes Myers

    Juolevi Woo

    Rathbone Trymakin


  9. Good game. Great night. No one can deny their most recent travel schedule in the month of November continues to show its side effects as expected.


    Im curious as to peoples thoughts on what the lineup is going to look like when healthy. I agree with some others that Gaudette is more suited for the winger role and would look good on Horvat's line with Pearson. Whilst Roussel has had chemistry with Bo in the past, I just don't see him as top 6 forward - not saying Pearson is either but believe him to be the better offensive option.


    Im projecting the forward group to look like this


    Miller Petersson Boeser

    Pearson Horvat Gaudette

    Ferland Sutter Virtanen

    Roussel Beagle Leivo




    Eriksson, Schaller can be/should be moved on from. Whilst I like Schaller's game this season, I don't think he takes a spot from Leivo, Roussel, Beagle, Ferland, Sutter or Virtanen. Not much to say about Eriksson that hasn't already been said. He's played well the last few games but the speed, driver and determination just aren't there to be found.

    You can't just name the players we recently drafted and say we "knocked it out of the park" 


    How have we knocked it out of the park with any of those guys outside of the first round?  They haven't proven anything.  Lind and Gadjovich just had terrible first seasons as pros.  Focht, Silovs, Madden, Utenen, Woo, Rathbone are prospects that pretty much every team has right now.  They are all long shots.  


    In 6 years Benning has failed to have a single player outside of the first round come in and make an impact.  


    Demko never plays and Gaudette can't find a role for regular icetime.




    I'm confused about the bolded. What teams have guys that have been discussed as potential 1st rounders in a redraft? Theres a few out there but not every team has them.


    This is Demko's first real and full season as a pro and backup. He will get the games, just be patient. Gaudette cant find a role because there aren't many guys he can replace on this team at this stage. He's a great player and will be a regular for us in the future. However, the way the team has been playing, can you blame them for keeping Gaudette out of the lineup? Did you see that 4th line yesterday against Detroit? Where would you like Gaudette to play? We have Baertschi who is a proven 40 point guy sitting in Utica. There is enough room for 12 forwards on this team. Pettersson, Boeser, Miller, Horvat, Ferland, and Pearson are definitely not going anywhere. There is no reason for Gaudette to play 4th line minutes or take on the role that a 4th line is expected to play. That leaves 3 spots...who you sending down? Sutter? Not likely! Virtanen? Not likely either! Leivo? Possibly! You can continue to swap Leivo and Gaudette as long as you want but eventually Roussel is coming back. If Schaller, Motte, and Beagle play anything like they did against Detroit for the next couple games, I would fully expect Leivo and Gaudette to remain out of the lineup.


    So Gaudette, Demko, Boeser, Pettersson, Hughes, Rathbone, Madden, Woo, DiPietro, Juolevi (wait and see), Trymakin, Podk, Hoglander is a great prospect pool and definite wins for the Canucks. You don't have to draft 1st line players with every pick to consider drafting successful.

  12. This is what I would do, but i'm no expert so....


    Trade Beagle for a 5th or 6th round pick to any team looking for bottom 6 center depth. Move Sutter down to the 4th line.

    Trade Schaller for a 7th to whoever wants him

    Goldobin down to the minors. Let him get some decent minutes, develop some confidence and further develop his game away from the puck. He does seem to have a better work ethic this year and has shown some flashes of a NHL caliber mainstay. Hopefully he can crack the lineup later this year.


    We save just over 7million in cap space with these moves.


    I just don't see how Baertschi loses his spot with Horvat. He is healthy, has been decent in pre-season and thinks the game better than anyone outside Pettersson, and Horvat in our forward group. He has been on pace for 40-50 points for the last 3 seasons. He just needs to stay healthy.

    When Roussel returns, I put him with Gaudette and Virtanen and move Pearson to another team. Pearson just hasn't looked good. Playing disinterested and too casual for my tastes. We have time to see how Pearson does and if in the next 12-18 games he isn't showing anything, then time to move on and have Roussel slot into the 3rd line.


    Ferland Pettersson Boeser

    Baertschi Horvat Miller

    Roussel/Pearson Gaudette Virtanen

    Eriksson Sutter Leivo

  13. I've supported JV since he was drafted and haven't lost complete hope in him yet. However, based on the reports from training camp and how JV has played thus far, I make this trade with the Oilers.


    Those who argue that JV is an NHL caliber player or that just because he wont amount to the hype of a top 10 pick he can still play in the bottom 6, etc should realize that bottom 6 players are expendable and replaceable. At least more so, than players with top 6 potential.


    Others that argue that Pool party hasn't shown much. I'm almost certain they have similar ppp production. I also think that the lack of production from Poolparty has a lot to do with how he was handled in Edmonton and his deployment. Under the right system and with the right supporting cast, I think he has a better chance of becoming a 50-60 point player than Jake Virtanen does. He's also a big body and can develop into a potential power forward that we were hoping Jake would be. 


    I should also mention, this trade needs to be made in December. Jake should get one last chance to show what he is capable of. If he doesn't play well, his value drops and he is likely a 1for1 trade option to bring in Poolparty or he performs well and there is no reason to get rid of him.

    nothing against OJ... however, there were good players on the team that were "+" players ....they too played on this crappy team. OJ still has some development to do with his "D" game.


    I'm going to try and explain what you've done here. You've pointed out positive +/- stats for players that have played 3 to 4 times more games than Juolevi. The Comets were a better team in the 2nd half of the season. Those players that played 35+ games had an opportunity to improve on their +/- stats unlike Juolevi. I would also point out the point totals. If Juolevi had played the entire season, not only would he likely have become a positive player due to the improvement in the team but I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up a ppg rookie defenseman in the AHL.


    You cant pick and chose what to acknowledge just to make a point. All that does is make argumentative and without merit.

    Recall Dorsett's "thank-you" tweet when Benning signed Prust.  Well now, no one or two guys have to do all the heavy-lifting.  Like JB envisioned, team grit and toughness will be a team identity throughout the lineup.  We won't be relying on a single guy to be an enforcer or to clean up after incidents.  No matter what line's on the ice, there will be pushback and accountability for opposing players.

    Love it!!!!

    I think Breezer and Sautner can platoon that spot if need be.  Breezer, imo, is ready to be in the NHL.

    Really? I think Sautner is more ready but either way they are pretty similar in their development and either one of them will likely get the chance this season.


    I almost forgot about MacEwan.


    We have a really really big, hard, tough team if you include him as well.


    Ferland, Pearson, Miller, Virtanen, Roussel, MacEwan, Benn, Myers, Woo and possibly Trymakin. Add in some skill with Pettersson, Boeser, Hughes, Juolevi and Horvat. - JB I'm impressed.
