  1. Possibly. There's definitely a different price tag on Landeskog vs Duchene. Duchene is definitely the more coveted player at this deadline. There's no way that Landeskog lands anything close to what Duchene's asking price is.
  2. I honestly don't think the price for Landeskog is as high as Duchene. Notice how all the media outlets are not even talking about Landeskog. The player teams covet most from the Avs is Duchene. I can accept that Hansen may not waive to goto the Avs, but anything is possible (see ForsbergTheGreat's post above). COL doesn't need RH shooting defencemen. They need a LH shooting one. Tanev would be of no interest to them. On top of that, Hutton doesn't need to be protected in the expansion draft which is a big plus.
  3. To VAN: Landeskog To COL: Hutton, Baertschi, Hansen VAN does this because of expansion draft reasons. They will lose one of Hansen, Baertschi, or Granlund to LV, but if they move 2 of them for 1 player, that issue is resolved. Sure, the Canucks could move one of them only... but if you can land a player like Landeskog by packaging 2 of them, while resolving the expansion draft issue, why not? COL does this because they get a TON of value coming back for Landeskog. Baertschi is comparable in terms of production while adding good playmaking abilities. Hansen is an amazing versatile 15-20 goal forward that provides a ton of speed and some leadership to the COL group. Hutton is a young up-and-coming dman with plenty of upside (and could help fill the void with Zadorov out for the season). Of note is that Baertschi and Hutton are about the same age as Landeskog, so neither the Canucks, nor the Avs are getting any older from this deal.
  4. Canucks as of today (Feb 17th) are sitting in the exact same spot that Winnipeg was in last year when they won the lottery to grab Laine. Just sayin... (cough... Hischier... cough...)
  5. Wait... what? Are you talking Mikael Backlund and Michael Frolik? You do know MT doesn't play on a line with Johnny Hockey and Monahan right? And even if he did, they're not exactly having great seasons either. MT is also 2nd highest scorer on the Flames behind Backlund.
  6. Agreed. The other aspect I don't like about MT is that he 'seems' to be a bit over the edge with his play. The last thing I want is another Canuck to be labelled as a dirty player moving forward for another 10+ years. I'm with you on the top pair dman as well. Would be huge if Juolevi became a true #1D, and Demko becomes a franchise goaltender. Anyways, I have faith in Juolevi, but I think it'll take some time. He seems too smart of a player not to succeed.
  7. I get what you're trying to say, but let's face it, he's in the Top 6 and getting those minutes because he's done what he needs to do to be there. He was given an opportunity and took off with it. Not all players can do that. I'm sure he would have been given an opportunity here as well, and if he looked effective (which I'm sure he would considering he goes into the dirty areas all night long), he would be playing with Horvat in the Top 6. Maybe he wouldn't have 36pts, but even 26pts would put him around the same point totals as Sutter and/or Baertschi. Tkachuk is an impact player, and there's no way you can discredit that. He earned his ice time and is showing why he's a high 1st round pick. I'm not comparing him to Juolevi at this point because comparing forwards to d-men isn't fair... especially this early in their career. All I'm saying is I sure hope Juolevi pans out, because if he doesn't, GMJB and the Canucks will look really stupid for passing on a player that looked like a surefire NHLer (not to mention he has the bloodlines as well).
  8. I only clicked on this thread to see how many minuses he got for such a dumb proposal lol.
  9. That's besides the point. The point is, Tkachuk was put into that position, and he took off with it. If he wasn't an impact player, he would have fizzled out and be sent back down to the juniors (cough... Virtanen... cough). As much as it hurts to admit it, the Flames got a helluva player in Tkachuk. We better hope (well, GMJB better hope even more) that Juolevi becomes that #1 or #2 dman he's touted to be...
  10. Yeah, it's Kathy MclLwain, but the joke wouldn't sound as good if I said: "I heard Horvat knows a woman... " lol
  11. Give em the Canucks 3rd (pretty much a late 2nd) and a lower end prospect. If speed is the issue, I heard Horvat knows a guy....
  12. LOVE the Sedins, but man, a part of me just can't wait until they retire so our new 'go-to' guy is Horvat. Why on Earth he wasn't on the ice in the last 30 seconds is beyond me.
  13. What about a 1-for-1 swap of Tanev for Nylander?
  14. Raffi Torres says hello. No seriously, he just called me and told me to say hello to you. So what are we talking about here? Oh ... yeah, usually stars win the Conn Smythe.
