    Canucks Third-Line
  1. I don’t see what one has to do with the other. Danault is 25 and fills a need in Montreal where they are very thin down the middle. It’s a good signing for Montreal. Bringing Ganger into the conversation doesn’t really make sense to me.
  2. Danault is a solid player. Regardless of him being French it was a no brainer getting him signed.
  3. 49m ago Canadiens agree to 3-year deal with Danault TSN.ca Staff Karlsson not happy with lack of bonus money in offer; Knights sign Fleury The Montreal Canadiens have agreed to a three-year deal with forward Phillip Danault worth $3.083 million per season, the club announced Saturday. He will become an unrestricted free agent in July of 2021. Last season, Danault had eight goals to go along with 17 assists in 52 games. He was selected No. 26 overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2011 NHL Draft and played his first two seasons in the Windy City. Danault was acquired by Montreal in February of 2016 along with a second round pick in exchange for Dale Weise and Tomas Fleischmann. For his NHL career, he has 25 goals and 50 assists in 187 games. The 25-year-old is a native of Victoriaville, Que.
  4. I’m pretty sure Montreal is starting the year without Shaw and Byron as well
  5. I don’t know that they take Horvat straight up. But it certainly gets them to the table. He’s a young, cost controlled top 6 C. Which certainly addresses one of their needs. It depends on just highly they regard him in relationship to what they think they can get in the draft in the top few positions. The question then becomes “Why does Vancouver do this?” There’s no guarantee that the pick becomes 1st overall. Take Horvat out of the Vancouver lineup and they’re very thin in the way of top centres. That makes Sutter their top C. I like Sutter but he’s ideally a very good 3C. So unless the pick wins the lottery you’ve just crippled the organization. Pettersson COULD be a top C. But unless I misunderstand he excelled this past season as a winger. It’s an exceptionally rare player that can step into a top 2C spot In the NHL and excell
  6. You can’t expect to get a top pick without offering something substantial in return. Spare parts isn’t going to do it. If you want a top 3 pick expect include one of Vancouver’s “untouchable” assets
  7. Regardless. Until Pacioretty is moved and you know the return you can speculate on the strength or weakness of the LW position. Either way, I doubt there’s a GM in the league that’s desperate to pick up Baertschi You aren’t offering anything of equal value to a chance at the exact piece they need in Hughes. It’s spare parts for a likely lottery pick. Suggesting Hughes wouldn’t sign in Montreal if drafted by them is possibly the dumbest arguement you could make to justify your trade suggestion
  8. Weber is out until December after having knee surgery two weeks ago. He will have missed an entire year of hockey by the time get gets back. Montreal will likely be a lottery team again unless Price can carry the weight for the entire season. Especially if they end up getting futures in a Pacioretty trade
  9. I’d debate your statement about Tanev. But I’ll let it stand for now. Baertschi would NOT be the second best LW. Pacioretty and Byron are both better, He’s probably on par with Lehkonen and Hudon. Either way, nothing you’ve suggested fill either of their primary needs (top 2 centre and LHS puck moving D)
  10. As much as a hate Bergevin, he hasn’t lost trades THAT badly. He’s gotten good value back in the trades. Just not equivalent value.
  11. Disregard my response. Wasn’t paying close enough attention to his age. Lol
  12. Nikita Tryamkin | D

    The Canucks will still own his rights when his current KHL contract expires. So if he wants to return to the NHL, it’ll be with the Canucks
  13. First off. Bergevin’s job, for whatever reason, appears to be secure. Second, the Weber injury is a built in excuse for poor results next season So I really don’t see Bergevin as “desperate”. Finally, even if he was desperate. There is nothing Vancouver could/would offer in return for their 1st thst would be a big enough home run to do it.
  14. [Signing] Canadiens sign Joel Armia

    Bergevin is fine on small day to day stuff. It’s the big decisions where he craps the bed
  15. [Signing] Canadiens sign Joel Armia

    Avoids arbitration. Good signing.
