  1. [Proposal] Pouliot to Pittsburgh

    Now, I know you are just having fun with me..... But for the rest of the folks.... Pouliot is a LH shot that plays both LD and RD He is still young, on a very cheap contract, which will not impact Pittsburgh's cap much. My understanding of Schultz's injury is he is out for 4 months buy will be back. For those that are suggesting MDZ...…..Pittsburgh is looking for a Dman who can play RD...……….MDZ has trouble playing LD, let alone RD, which he can't.
  2. [Proposal] Pouliot to Pittsburgh

    It is a good question...….. I don't know, maybe we put in a 4th or a 6th Looking for consensus.... Example...…..maybe something like Pouliot @ 50 % + 2020 4th for 2019 2nd + 2019 5th ?
  3. [Proposal] Pouliot to Pittsburgh

    Schultz is a RHD, so I think they would be looking for someone that can play that side..... Not a bad idea, but I don't think MDZ plays RHD..???? Value is about the same, though.
  4. Well, with the cluster of defensemen we have on the Left side, and with many of them in the same skill category (Hutton, MDZ, Juolevi, Sautner, and Brisebois) Pouliot has become more dispensable. And now with Justin Schultz out for up to 4 months, this is the time to move him. I have 3 offers for Pittsburgh Trade 1 Pouliot to Pittsburgh for a 2020 3rd and a 2019 5th Trade 2 Pouliot to Pittsburgh @ 50 % for a 2019 2nd Trade 3 Biega to Pittsburgh @ 50 % for 2020 3rd and a 2019 5th Either way, we win, and Pittsburgh fills a hole created by the Schultz injury

    Thanks Robb Great points of view guys...nice to hear Joulevi is moving in the right direction. I have also read that Brisebois is somewhat painted as a Tanev type player. Does he have a fit somewhere with us? Don't mean to derail the Joulevi thread...but all is inter-connected to me

    Boy Guddy is going to be busy!

    Thanks for taking the time to watch and report Robb I wonder how it all plays out with what is happening on the big club? MDZ is gone sometime this year, but that still leaves...… 1. Edler 2. Hutton 3. Pouliot Hughes Juolevi Brisebois and most likely Sautner All needing a place to play next year....Joulevi and Hughes are waiver exempt next year...…. What do you think Robb, something has to happen according to your report. Thoughts?
  8. Rate the draft picks and college signing, playing for Canucks now.

  9. Pssst, you missed Hughes....
  10. Hey Edgar, I started this post to start debate....thanks for commenting.
  11. No, because these players are elite and on cup contending teams, which is a far cry from where we are...….or who I am talking about Please do not get me wrong, I am not an advocate of trading for the sake of trading
  12. My thoughts on your comments are that you are right, in regards to team chemistry, but there are many factors and that is just one.... I look at other issues as just about as important, in the long term......aka team depth being one, and as you see it now, having team depth, is an very important item, and one that has Vegas being competitive right from the get go...……. This brings me to our depth and the lop sidedness of it...………..example...………. We have, Edler, MDZ, Hutton, Pouliot, Hughes, Juolevi, Sautner, Brisebois, and McEneny...……..9 LHD, all of which will be waiver eligible next year, short of Juolevi and Hughes, who IMO will make the Canucks....so do we loose prospects at years end to waivers, just to keep an replaceable aging veteran? The same thing can be asked about Left Wing, where we have an abundance of players in Baertschi, Goldobin, Rousell, Schaller, Granlund, Motte, Leipsic, Dahlen, Gadjovich, all of which have the potential to be playing on the big club excluding Gadjovich, who along with Dahlen are waiver exempt. I personally do not see this as a bad thing, and if we loose a couple of the fringe players, that will be acceptable, but something I would like to do. So, last year, IMO we could not loose, Sutter because we had no replacement, today we have Beagle and Gaudette, along with Granlund (who is younger and more versatile) than Sutter. Next year, we will have Hughes and Juolevi pushing for spots, Dahlen will be pushing, and a possible 1st pushing somewhere in the lineup. Albeit, this is good, there is a very fine line to balance on, where we can actually move those veterans, and still be competitive, but remain down in the standings....we are close! It is just my concern, that Benning will not move those players, and the league will pick off a waiver player, that we would like to keep. It is also my contention that the players we pick in this up coming draft, will be the final pieces, and that going forward our group will be young, fast, quick and very competitive. I do not see Edler and Sutter being part of that leadership in 2 years...….and as I say, I would rather have a controlled ascent. Cheers!
  13. I am not against improvement Edgar, I just want to make sure we do not burp, like we did back in 2014 - 2015, if we can ascend to the top with the players we have, than that is great, but the fact remains that we still count on Edler, Tanev, and Sutter, to do much of the heavy minutes and duties. I sense is that when they retire or age, and their play declines, we will not have replacements. I would much rather see us take a controlled approach, where we move players, with the rebuild in mind. My fear is, that we get on a roll and win just enough games to look good, but not be good, and that we keep Edler. Tanev and Sutter, have 1 good season, and then start falling back to earth, as they decline. I think as we see the Pettersson's. Boeser's, and Hughes mature, they will need a strong veteran presences to support there games. I fear that those veterans named (and Others) will not be there to support in the same way, and we will yet be waiting for additional help. Maybe it is just a fear, and it could be unfounded, but IMO, that is a real possibility...…..if I am wrong? Good!
  14. Yes Chon Derry, but acquired new ones, as well, and we need to be proactive and not protective of this season, this is part of a transition and still part of a rebuild. There are about the same amount of A type prospects as last year, and hopefully we can move enough replaceable veterans to slow down just a little, so that we don't completely miss the A - Group, which to my understanding is about 10 or 11 strong, preferably, I would like to be in the same range again this year as last.....4, 5, 6 7, OA at the draft would just be fine, and win the lottery...….but that is not happening, so a top 10 pick is imperative to me, hopefully a top 6...…..this is not the year I want to see us climb....it would be foolish Win some games yes....but,,,,boy oh boy!
  15. Ok, you guys are gonna kill me for this...…….. Does everyone remember now, how after our 2011 cup loss, we started to descent and at first there were only a few of us, who said we should be sellers of our aging veterans, and as the years passed, we seen many of them start to fade and their talent diminish, and for the most part we lost the opportunity to gain maximum value. Fast forward several years and there were more CDCers saying we should sell our veterans. Now we will never know for sure what we would have gained, and those veterans we so wanted to move for younger assets or picks, but most know today, where we are in terms of the competitiveness of this current team. Well, for the most part, we did not control our descent. Fast forward to todays, roster, and the obvious change in competitiveness, and skill level. Yes, our prospects (Boeser and Pettersson) have shown well, and have begun to swing of fortunes around. Also, showing is our depth, and strength of our 3rd and 4th lines. Green definitely has them all playing with more focus, as well. The acquisition of Rousell, Beagle and Schaller has made us stronger. Benning did well to add these players. And we have prospects simmering in junior and in the minors that will add to this ascent. Currently,we are enjoying seeing a team that is re-focussed, and pushing each other to be better, and as CDC drools over the prospects (after 6 games) of watching competitive hockey this year, I am reminded that a controlled ascent would be very well recommended. How, why, are you crazy, most will ask, but my opinion is based on what would be good for the club over an extended period of time, and not now, and not the I want it now! Before the season started, most CDCer's were pssd that Benning went out and acquired Rousell, Schaller and Beagle, and although, I question some of the logic behind, what I think was a premature move, they are all character players that compete every night, and will show the young guns how to play. It get Bennings thought process on these moves, just not the timing, but not to beat a dead horse, they do make us stronger. It also shows you how easy they are to get, when having cap space. Now to the crux of my point. I feel certain, that many of CDC would not understand, trading away veterans that are contributing well, as we enter into the TDL, and would be for the most part very confused, if while still in playoff contention, we were to traded off veterans, such as a Markstrom, a Baertschi, MDZ, or a Edler, or a Sutter, and possibly Tanev for picks either as part of packages or as stand alone trades. But the simple truth is we will need this years crop of early draft picks to finish off our rebuild, with high end picks, and not mid 1st rounders or mid 2nd and, 3rds, if we're to continue to be a .500 club. Simply put we have not completed our rebuild. The 2019 draft, will be the draft to do just that, and if we continue to be just high enough to be a 14 to 17 OA team, our position will miss out on the cream. Not be in position in the first round and not in the second round, nor the 3rd. Let us have a controlled ascent, let us do what is best for the club long term, let us move veterans out not because they do not fit know, but trade veterans that have value (now), but will not be here long enough to enjoy that raise in dominance, we will surely see in 3 to 4 years. Let us not, get so enthused that we forget the plan, or forget the mission...... If we win with this line up until mid December, fine, but capitalize, by moving the veterans out as originally planned...…...this is a journey, not a bus ride. Our team will be much better long term for it. One is always better, when one controls their own fate, for the first time, I would like to be that team. In 3 or 4 years.
