  1. 2017-2018 line up (with what we have)

    IMO 2A 2B 2C & 3 4th is a 3. 3 is a 2 but 1 is a 2. Hope it can balance out, only problem is a typical 1 gets a lot of pp time and helps the offensive output.
  2. I would trade Baertschi but not Granlund.
  3. 2017-2018 line up (with what we have)

    I like this lineup. I would switch Vanek with Erikson though. D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Vanek - 17 mins Baertschi - Horvat - Boeser -16 mins Granlund - Gagner - Eriksson - 16 mins Burmistrov - Sutter - Virtanen -11 mins but Sutter would end up with more due to big pk ice time. Because I think everyone in the top 9 can play on the power play I'd like to see two 4 forward pp groups and if the pp is killed by the other team Sutter gets the next shift.
  4. Does anybody else find it odd that the "announcement" from Daniel Sedin was that the Sedona want to retire as Canucks? is this not something they have already said many times? Also they didn't say at the end of this year, so where is the announcement?
  5. if we retained salary on Loui I could see it possible.
  6. we have a good quantity of prospects now, we need to work on the quality. A Pastrnak trade would be a great move for our rebuild.
  7. Instead of Gudbranson and Virtanen, i think Hutton and Virtanen would give us a better shot. Boston can see Huttton is cheaper, younger and a RFA after his contract runs up as opposed to a UFA like Gudbranson. If Vancouver can't or doesn't want to re-sign Gudbranson he can be traded at the deadline. Id throw in as high as a 2'nd if needed to try to get it done.
  8. [Rumour] Tanev for James Van Riemsdyk

    Could potentially add that Juolevi added size and strength and would need to go back to the OHL if not in the NHL. The quote from Benning regarding needing a d-man back was before he signed to UFAs so I'm not convinced we still need that in a return as it would be smart to simply get the most value possible. Liljegren would be a perfect fit coming back. Really makes no sense not to make the deal for both teams. Hope vancouver doesn't wait until Tanev loses value.
  9. 2017-2018 line up (with what we have)

    This is the lineup I'd like to see but I know we won't: Bear - Bo - Boeser Sedin - Sedin - Goldobin Eriksson- Sutter - Granlund Rodin -Gagner/Burmistrov Dorsett Gaunce not much grit or size but more offence
  10. (Proposal) Bid Deal Van - Mon

    Montreal has 5 LD on their roster and 2 RD. if Alzner plays with Weber I don't see any reason why Petry and Tanev could not be split up. Also their is many ways to win what is wrong with being the hardest team to score against in the league? Cap wise it works for Montreal who still has a lot of cap space and would be getting 3 players for less than the two they are trading. Montreal gets a younger cheaper C than Plekanec who scored more points on a 29'th ranked team, they also get Baertschi who can fill in most of the void from Galchenyuk and Tanev. Montreal would have more flexibility (3 roster spots for less money) to add another centre or winger who can score after this trade. In Vancouver Galchenyuk could play on Horavt or Petterson's wing in the future as I think he's better suited as a winger.
  11. (Proposal) Bid Deal Van - Mon

    Hope so. With our newly acuried depth it would be nice if we could come up with a package for some higher end talent. Our depth isn't the issue any more it's top end talent imo.
  12. (Proposal) Bid Deal Van - Mon

    Tanev & Sutter for Galchenyuk and 2'nd. That is certainly more plausible as it is a simpler deal. I like the idea of Plekanec as he potentially has negative value at the moment with less than 30 points and 6 million contract but I believe if we retain 2 million at the deadline we could turn him into possibly a 2'nd depending on how he plays. Then Montreal has more cap flexibility. I like both deals though. Montreal needs a centre and right side D-man.
  13. (Proposal) Bid Deal Van - Mon

    our major weakness is scoring and he has potential for 70 points in the future
  14. to MTL: Tanev -main piece for Montreal Sutter - Fills in for Plekanec plus cheaper and younger. Canucks lose the long term commitment. Baertschi -fills in some of the scoring in montreal from Radulov and Galchenyuk 3'rd round Pick To Van: Galchenyuk -main piece for Vancouver much needed scoring Plekanec - Cap dump for montreal(6 million). Only 1 year left for Vancouver can flip at deadline and retain some salary. Allows Montreal to make other adds. 2018 1'st - Montreal is in win now mode so trading a 1'st to a rebuilding team makes sense. Main pieces are Tanev and Galchenyuk, Vancouver gets a 1'st because of adding Baertschi, and eating Plekanec's contract.
  15. 8 team no trade list shouldn't be a deal breaker. With Marleau the leafs are trying to win now before Mathews Marner etc come off their ELCs What about: Lupul (negative value) & Nylander for Tanev. or Lupul Liljegren 2018 1 for Tanev or can Toronto just keep Horton and Lupul on IR?
