  1. It's just one or two guys really, a lot of people including me are pissed. Moves like this validate Burrows at 4m. Vrbata, Bonino and maybe Hamhuis are our only cost effective players at this point.
  2. Maybe, but in that case would you not be more excited to over spent on a FA this summer?
  3. Just cuz you have more money to spend does NOT mean you offer it to the first players that ask. These new contracts have just been TERRIBLE, including Tanev's. Don't you find it strange how you have to defend all these contracts with the Cap is going up, if you look at "ADVANCED stats"... if they continue at their current pace of improvement, 2 years from now they'll be worth their contracts, and (my favourite) JB must know someone is getting moved? People getting moved and more cap money should be spent on signing another Vrbata to replace Higgins on the second line, not solidify Higgins' position on the second line by giving the money to 4th liners and fringe 3rd pairing d-men.
  4. So by the looks of it, we get to trade a non-existent Schneider for a top 10 pick again this season? Decent pick-up the way the season has gone. Looks even better when you consider Calgary got some junk and a LATE pick for Iginla. Meanwhile we pick up 2 top 10 picks without intentionally tanking a season.
  5. Pretty sure if we finish with the 9th overall pick and get the 30th overall for Kesler, we could snag the 3rd or 4th overall, which is a pretty good deal.
  6. Realistically, best case scenario is we don't push for a PO spot and give some young guys some play time here. Really figure out what we have in Guance/Jensen/Corrado and then play the offseason well. Put Kesler with the Sedins Let the younger guys fill the rest.
  7. Yes, this is MG's plan. If Kes is traded for something nice and we draft top 10, we would basically have rebuilt in 1 season. Let Lack dig his feet in b/c he will be starter next yr, lets tank a bit more. It doesn't even matter if we trade up or not, this pick if top 10 is for the future and a mere bonus, it won't immediately help in the rebuild.
  8. "Exactly. Picks look nice but it's a long term solution and we don't replace even a portion of Kesler with it. Need a roster player young, prospect and pick " This Teams should just give up honestly
  9. Also there is nothing that you can really give up. To MG I'm thinking it would take a 2011 Cody Hodgson + prospect + 1st to get this done.
  10. Cannot see Kes going to any contender b/c they would have to give up too much to get him while also losing capspace to fit him in. He has control so he will veto any trade to teams that would actually give an arm and a leg to get him (non-playoff bound teams). = He will not be traded!
  11. There is no bargaining ploy guys, if no one overpays for Kesler (as they very well should b/c he is not a rental), he stays, not until the draft, until the end of his contract! With Lu gone and the cap going up, we magically and finally have the capspace to sign him a decent winger. No more Raymond, Booth, Higgins, Sammy, etc marginal crappy BS for him to deal with. Only problem with this is if Kes wants out and he has come out and said he does not! From the fact he is still here and the crap offers, I conclude that there is no validity to the fact that he wants out. Philly would be out of their minds to not trade the farm for Kes. If I was PH I would be in whatever it takes mode IF I knew Vancouver was actually serious about this. All this stuff is just media BS waste of time. They are dedicating frekin half a day of tv time and broadcasters and reporters going every which way, you really don't think they are going to cook stuff up and blow things way the hell out of proportion?
  12. Something not mentioned too often, with Luongo off the books, Kesler doesn't have to go ANYWHERE anymore. Unless of course he wants to.
  13. I'm surprised he hasn't been advance-scouted
  14. Yeah he's a 4th line replacement as well. Really I'm just glad to have the cap-space. I would try to package Matthias.
