  1. If Cernak is as good as CDC thinks the package to get him will be costly.... Think Big! Like over payment big!
  2. I really like Cernak But in saying that, it is his size, speed and stats that entice me So, I will trust CDC, and the scouts for their assessments So, I will take the big leap of faith and accept that Cernak has the ceiling of a top RHD or a the very least a top 3 In any case, with his age, size and stated abilities, I would be willing to do this.............. Woo 2021 2nd Gaudette DiPietro This is a futures offer to Tampa obviously, but if all the noise about Cernak are true, he will be a core piece for years to come In the Canuck sphere, I see the following as core pieces, in which to build around...................with age and ability being the only criteria Hoglander Pettersson Boeser Hughes Cernak Demko XXXXXX Horvat Podkolzin Juolevi XXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX Virtanen Rathbone XXXXX XXXXXX MacEwen Lind This list does not include Miller, Toffoli, Myers, Pearson, .................all who would obviously be on the team now, but will not in 4 to 5 years I also see it as having a lot of speculation in projecting Hoglander, PodkolzinJuolevi and Rathbone into the spots they have been placed So sliding back to my proposal for a second. I think that is what it will take to get Cernak, "IF" he is as good as advertised, otherwise, why would Tampa not keep him, and move others.............. Is he as good as advertised? Is he worth giving up that much asset?
  3. #1..........Eriksson can still play defense............and can in a pinch, for short periods play up to give a offensive line some protection #2..........Helm is a slug, and has lost all his abilities #3..........Stecher would be the best RHD on Detroit.....bar none #4.........."IF" there was an add, then I suspect it would be in the vain of a Stecher, Leivo, type pro, or a DiPietro, Lind, Jasek, Brisebois type of prospect, as for picks, a 3rd would be plenty I agree with Benning.......it will not be much.............. Also.......take a look at where Detroit sits as per their cap space........."IF" it was Abdelkader, he is owed $9,500,000 over that 3 years, compared to Loui's $5,000,000 and to me that has Detroit adding a prospect or a pick for us...... All, just my opinion...............as Benning does infer.............Eriksson has some value, just not $6,000,00 actual dollars per season. Helm has zero value.
  4. Darren Helm (1 year at 3,850,000)..................Total actual cost $3,000,000 for Luoi Eriksson (2 years at 6,000,000................Total actual cost $2,500,000 for 2 years ($5,000,000 total) Canucks save $2,850,000 this year in cap space and $6,000,000 next year Detroit saves $500,000 in actual dollars this year, and adds $6,000,000 X 2 in cap As much as JB says he would not pony up an asset....I am not sure about that......a small add...Stecher, maybe? ( I would !) or part of a larger trade? Note: Helm could be bought out for: - 1st year $500,000 - 2nd year $500,000 This is the move that Benning will do! Benning's recent posturing is to soften Eriksson's Modified NTC (15 teams), IMO
  5. I think people are missing what JB is saying and to whom....... I think JB is telling Eriksson, status quo.................at best Eriksson got into 49 games this last season, out of 70ish And again, was not used much in the playoff, and sat on the bench a great deal What JB is saying is expect the same....at best! I also think that JP Barry's actions, say that Loui wants out And is not prepared to sit again for another 2 years, like he has That is best case senario.......... Worst case for Loui is that JB has told JP Barry that Eriksson is going down to Utica as he needs to get the young kids some time on the big club In either case.......I do not think Loui is very happy with the situation I also think JB is telling the other GM's that Loui's actual money's owed over the next 2 years after the bonus was paid, is enough of an incentive A little cat and mouse being played by JB...............I think! My bet is Loui is not looking forward to this season as it sits, especially with Utica as a possibility
  6. @Provost I am so sick of our Dman being bounced off of pucks Short term a RHD of Pesce/Tanev/Myers sounds really good especially if our LHD is Hughes/Edler/ and Juolevi or Rathbone................Tryamkin Long term Pesce/Woo/Schneider Hughes/Juolevi/Rathbone...................Tryamkin It would be the best Defense we have ever had
  7. Maybe I am missing something, if I am I apologize I guess what I am saying is that Boeser is certainly worth a 5th OA, if that is what Benning wanted to do with him.... Personally, I want to trade him for Pesce +.......I have no idea what the plus is......but we need a large solid RHD Dman Boeser + Demko for Pesce and Toronto's 1st (13 OA).....pick Brayden Schneider 6'2" 209 lbs Takes care of RHD for years
  8. Man, it gives me a head ache, when I read, that we can't move Tanev because he has good chemistry.......Tanev will move himself from Hughes, sometime in the future, when he retires......does that mean there is no one else that can play with Hughes? It just seems to be such a common comment about all our players..............as if no one else can play for us! I mean, come on!!!! Bennings job is to always try to improve the team, which means.............moving players.....god forbid!
  9. Q....what the heck? Boeser is not to be ignored here He was runner up for the Calder nothing to sneeze at Certainly top 5 in his draft year People get too in love with the draft picks We in no way are trading him if we are not in Cap hell unless for a top 2 RHD.....Boeser has value , man!
  10. Sorry Provost, but you make it sound like the sky is falling.............. Eriksson for Schneider is a solid 1 for 1 trade where NJ gets $7 million in actual dollars paid relief, and I do not believe there would be any additional want from New Jersey. Vancouver can then buy him out and have 4 years at $2,000,000, which is a $4,000,000 savings........ Sutter is pretty much a wash in terms of whether he would cost anything, but I am sure he can be moved for very little, which is a savings of another $4,000,000, but lets say you have to include a 3rd,.... Baertschi, could play on Horvat's line for year, or go back down to Utica for a $1,000,000 savings IMO, players like Benn, and Roussel could almost certainly be moved with a $1,000,000 retained. which would free up another $3,000,000 Then if you do sign one of Toffoli Tanev or Markstrom It is a savings of $5,000,000 Not to mention Ferland being on LTIR, which is another $3,500,000 I honestly see, absolutely no reason to move a 1st....or or a prospect for that matter.
  11. So those that say that teams can just go and sign someone as good as Demko.....or Markstrom Take a look at the top 19 UFA goalies My question would be, if a team is just wanting a stop gap goalie.......sure go ahead and take anyone But if you are a team wanting to shape your future of your young team...Demko is who you would want If you want now..,,,,,,,then Markstrom is a very good choice Hey Smith or Kinkaid are available
  12. Could you imagine if he continues to grow and ends up 6'7" and 265 lbs OH, MY GOD!
