  1. Was willing to pay someone to take Cam Talbot all summer...
  2. So if I signed Anders Lee as a free agent in July I could have traded him for Chabot three months later? Don't want to beat a dead horse on the sign and trades discussion but it's ridiculous to see this be an ongoing issue, for high profile players nonetheless. I know that Pittsburgh changed GMs but that's not really an excuse when the guy who signed Lee is still part of management.
  3. Canucks looking to acquire depth dmen!
  4. Could this please be processed/Chorney placed on waivers if he hasn't been already? On another note, to answer Salter's question above - I'm super happy to see Timmins back in action after a one-year hiatus

  7. I considered taking him if I still had my first but at least it was a mid second round pick and not a first hahah....
  8. Colorado ELC slides sorry - ignore this! miscommunication. Will update @Nail
  9. Working on it! Sent in two trades earlier and working on a couple more - will post a compliant roster before the deadline
  10. Agreed regarding Carolina - I think they were moved by the previous exec team back in the day because we had 5-6 teams in the Metro that were in the top 10 and it was ridiculous for a top 10 team to miss the playoffs. The landscape is obviously different now with Florida and Boston also emerging as top 5 teams. However, I don't think swapping my Pitts team with last year's Vancouver team was made with the intention of weakening the Metro. On my end I saw a chance to be GM of the Canucks and jumped at the opportunity. Vancouver scored 5,249 points last year while Pittsburgh had 4,978 which would actually make the Metro tougher. The difference was in goalie points which I had every intention of fixing and hopefully have addressed with Hellebuyck. So it seemed like an even swap on my end. If anything, it's nice to see more teams being competitive in the league! Kudos to the GMs who have stuck it out through long rebuilds and are slowly becoming competitive.
  11. Thanks commissioners for processing the trade and Calgary for the negotiations. I’m ecstatic to add Nathan Mackinnon to our team. I’ve wanted to trade for Mackinnon since the inaugural CDCP draft and have messaged every single GM who has had him multiple times to see if I could acquire him. Unfortunately, this got harder as he continued to get better. It’s tough to give up Huberdeau after a career year but Maroe loves Barkov and the Panthers so I didn’t have much of a choice if I wanted this to happen. He’s also the one who signed Huby to his current contract - $5M till 2023 so things are coming full circle. As for the other parts of the trade, swapping Atkinson for Werenski is a tough pill to swallow fantasy wise as Atkinson is probably going outproduce him again this year by approx 1fp/g. It was something that I needed to fill a hole on defence and given the overabundance of wingers in Vancouver and the fact that the players are on the same team, this seemed like a low risk move. I wasn't able to start all my wingers last year anyways so at least I'll be getting some points from my dmen. Happy also to be bringing a few more Canucks home to Vancouver. Talbot is available if anyone wants to take a chance on the Flames this year…
  12. Vancouver is interested in moving out one of Johnny Gaudreau (5.82 fp/g at 7.25M till 2023), Gabriel Landeskog (6.43fp/g at 5.571M till 2021), or Jonathan Huberdeau (5.55fp/g at 5M till 2023). A couple teams have messaged me about them the past month so I'm opening it up to anyone else who is interested. I'm looking for a first line center (or winger who has centre eligibility..or even RW) who is of similar age, produces at the same rate, and is preferably signed to a similar contract. Need to clear the log jam at LW or I won't be able to play all my wingers during the season. A simple one for one would be perfect. if you're looking to do a deal like the Rasmus Dahlin one, then I'm probably not your guy. Not looking for a depth deal at this time. I could also move Cam Atkinson (4.62fp/g at 5M till 2021) for a centre but I'd prefer to move a left winger.
  13. Vancouver finishes the draft with the following picks: 48th overall - Patrik Puistola 65th overall - Antti Tuomisto 79th overall - Michal Teply 141st overall - Jordan Harris Overall I'm pretty happy with the players selected. Kinda bummed that I traded the 11th overall pick but am super excited to be adding Hellebuyck to the team. Time to cheer for the real life Canucks at Rogers Arena tonight! Will be sure to cheer loudly for whoever we pick
