  1. I'm quite hyped for this game, excited to see how petterson / goldy / dahlen do on our side but also intrigued on Yamamoto and Benson line is going to do the oilers. Both players I was sad that oilers took because I wanted them on our prospect depth. akin to when Barzal got tooken 16th by NYI I wanted canucks to trade into that pick or into one of the 3 boston picks to draft him. the jury is still out on Zachary Senyshyn but taking him 15th OA seems a little foolish seeing that the next 3 picks were Barzal, Connor, Chabot
  2. Is it just me or is it in Ottawa's best interest to keep Karlsson until the TDL or until something really good comes up leading up... They have no need to lose games since their first is gone so a Karlsson playing benefits them. It gives the both of them one good look at each other before truly knowing if they are to part ways and for Karlsson's perspective it gives a clearer indication of the contenders where it would be more appealing to be traded to for this season. Fitting a 6.5m cap at the deadline is a lot easier as well since it's pro-rated and gives a team the option to not resign if he doesn't fit in their cap structure. The main gamble is if Karlsson gets injured then that really hampers things and if Karlsson is absolutely set on leaving town then it sucks to get into that type of situation but my guess is Karlsson is enough of a professional to play through the games and perform. He is the captain after-all.
  3. Quinn Hughes announces his return to Michigan

    Makes the most sense. College he gets to spend more time in the gym to get bigger and stronger not that I think he needs to be a tank but proper body development will be nice to avoid injuries. not to mention we have 8 Dmen signed and can now run them into the season and be patient for move. getting assets for del zotto, Hutton, Pouliot would be nice. And/or Taney at the TDL and try to dial back his ice time and pk time to avoid injuries and in turn hopefully bringing the value up
  4. Anderson is a good goalie... I'd be willing to do a Nillson // Anderson swap run Anderson//Markstrom next year allowing us to trade one the year after for Demko + One of them.
  5. [Report] The Sabres Will Not Qualify Lehner

    Lehner has some serious attitude issues... Ottawa and most teams around the league should stay clear lol...
  6. Whilst this may seem fair for both sides I am doubtful that Florida would trade away Bjugstad seeing as they lost Reilly Smith and Marchessault just to protect him lol And just from a general perspective it's tough to let go of young point producing 6' 6" centers... especially for a 1 year UFA, older winger that had a down year
  7. (Proposal) Van-Tor-TB

    Tampa easily says no, this is quite bad from their perspective.. Johnson alone would be easily worth Tor first round pick and they are typically reluctant in trading high end prospects like Foote away.
  8. It's quite simple really... Two GMs agree that the 2019 first for the Canucks is conditional in that when the draft positions are set and the pick is in the Top X than the Canucks has the elective to defer that pick for a future first round draft pick. It's not that rare in the NHL... In fact Ottawa in the Duchene deal protected their 2018 draft pick to be protected if their pick ended up being in the top 10. Perhaps 7 seems to be a random number but teams have a general idea on how the next future drafts are to be projected and its not too farfetched to think that they would want to protect up to top 7 based on what they feel the top end of the crop of that year to be is... You are looking at it wrong. On the Canucks viewpoints the deal is good in a sense that Karlsonn is a hell of a player but it's horrid in the sense that Karlsonn really doesn't round up this team to be a contender... Especially when he's UFA in the 2019-2020 season. Canucks are looking 2-3 years down the line but a deal like Karlsonn is focusing on the now where our core young pieces are not good enough or seasoned enough. Plus if the Canucks protect top 7 and we are that bad with Karlsonn in the lineup then the year after where we would have to defer the included pick to the 2020 draft is where Karlsonn has the decision to walk in UFA... if we were that bad with Karlsonn in the lineup then I could only imagine how bad we would be with Karlsonn out of the lineup the year after... To much risk and quite frankly Canucks aren't going to trade away future first rounders for players especially when they are hosting the 2019 draft.
  9. Mtl says no.. 2 guys that have been injured or been in the proverbial dog house all season. Not that appealing to give up a player like Svechnikov or Zadina... Canucks are not good trade partners. We finally have prospects in our systems to be excited about but we are not in the position to sell any. We need to hit on a few like before we can deem that we have an excess to trade those types of pieces.
  10. Liljegren is a solid prospect, his 17 points in this season is across 44 games, he also had a solid world jr's Over 82 games he's at about a 31 point pace which is pretty decent for a 19 year old rookie playing against men. I don't think Edm wants a player like Tanev when they have Larson which is essentially the same type of player. My guess is they'll make a hard pitch for Barrie in Colorado. Just hit his prime, has that offensive push they want in the back end and Colorado has reportedly put him on the trade block for the past 3 years.
  11. Why do people want to move up to pick a winger so badly? It's going to cost too much and I'd rather use an asset like Tanev to get a late first and a good prospect or a good young roster player rather than to move 3-4 spots up in the draft. Yes Zadina and Svechnikov look like studs but the defencemen we can get at the 7 spot is what we've always wanted. Draft Dobson, Hughes, or Boqvist and be glad to get a smooth skating dman with offensive tools and excellent puck transition ability. Then trade Tanev for pick at the 2018 draft if there is a player you can target on the board. Optionally we could keep Tanev and trade him for 2019 firsts at the TDL and try to load up for the draft that we are hosting.
  12. Bring back Gully?

    Think gully was in charge of the power play. Doug Jarvis was the defensive guy. Lets give this coaching staff another year before we bring out the lynch mob.. stecher and Pouliot showed progress in the right direction. Edler had a pretty good year. The team is just not good. No coach is going to change that. Only time and good drafting / development will
  13. Edmonton would want a good puckmoving or offensive d-man.. I could see them putting a package up for Barrie in Colorado... Canucks don't have any player close to that regard. Maybe if Edmonton was desperate they'd do Hutton for their 2nd though... Maybe add a small capdump coming back.
  14. Would be cool to have kolvy around goldy. May be another enticing comrade to reign in tryamkin back to the NHL as well. Term would have to be between 1-3 years tho
  15. Whilst I agree to your point in general... this team is chalked full of top 9 tweeners. I think we already know what Baertschi is and that is easily replaceable... I mean Leipsic has shown well in the 3 games as a replacement. It's fine to be a top 9 tweener but on our team we need to keep swinging for homers instead of sticking with singles so to speak thus I would trade futures for Baertschi and take a chance with some college UFAs because they are younger (likely 22) and are more of an unknown quantity in terms of upside. Brickley is one of top names thrown out there that would be ideal in a Canucks uniform.. Offensive style LHD blueliner which we all know we need. Signing Brickley would likely make Hutton and/or Del Zotto expendable for next season.
