  1. Lmao, I'm sorry but that trade is way off. It would take quite a bit more from Toronto to get Schenn, even if they are taking on Lavavalier's contract with it
  2. TBH I really want to see Hamhuis retire a Canuck. In my opinion he is the perfect example of a class act, hard working Canadian hockey player that ALL Canadian teams need more of.
  3. Edmonton is looking for top centers more than anything right now. They are going to have anywhere with #1-#3 pick this year, which they will use to get any of McDavid, Eichel, or Dylan Strome. While I like the idea of getting such a high pick, Edmonton wouldn't even consider a trade with us unless it was something along the lines of: Edmonton: 1st 2015 Vancouver: Horvat, Virtanen, 1st 2015 And I would never want to make that trade
  4. As a Canucks fan who lives in Toronto, I have had the chance to watch nearly every game that Bozak plays. Bozak is a very good 3rd line center, and an average at best 2nd line center. His offensive production is heavily inflated by the people he plays with (Kessel and JVR), as well as his zone starts. There is nothing wrong with the kind of player he is, but rather what he is paid to do what he does. $4.15M a year for a 3rd line player would not work on a team like the Canucks that are spending so close to the cap. Value is not too far off though
  5. Is it fair value? I think so, so good job there. However I still wouldn't do it. Hansen plays with so much heart and intensity, I would hate to lose him
  6. Points are not everything my friend. While Cormier is not likely to put up 50+ points in the NHL, he is a fairly good 3rd/4th line center, as he plays a fairly good defensive game. While on a pure talent level Buffalo has a few centers that would be above him, they are lacking in someone who could play that bottom 6 shutdown center role next season better than Cormier could; excluding perhaps McCormick (who if I'm correct is UFA next season and will likely be traded at the deadline). In my opinion, Cormier is a lot like Maxim Lapierre in his ability and play-style.
  7. Winnipeg: Patrice Cormier + 2015 3th round pick Buffalo: Drew Stafford Winnipeg adds that 2nd/3rd line RW that they need for their first playoff appearance since the relocation. Buffalo gets a decent prospect who could play a 3rd line role for them next season, plus another draft pick. What does everyone think?
  8. Here's the way I see trades (and this is just the way I see it, does not mean it's law lol). As soon as you need more than one hand to count the number of players being moved, the trade has next to no chance of working. The way to do trades in today's NHL is to trade a few pieces of equal value, not a plethora of players to equal 1 or 2 people.
