  1. I understand where you are coming from, but like what Benning did with the void in middle age vets( trades and signings) he will take a look at these prospect as they develop and probably move some out, if they are not developing to plan..... My big scheme is to continue to move vets....we signed some more....we keep them and move out some older vets for picks................we will not be ready to compete near the top for 3 to 4 years if everything turns out so I see Gagner as a replacement for trading Sutter I also see Del Zotto a replacement for trading Edler and a possible move of Tanev, if a mid first and a prospect can be had These type of returns would group a ton of our prospects in the same age grouping, and when they start coming alone is when we will be strong throughout the organization......this is why I think Benning is doing such a great job....I can actually see a plan, and it is looking as if it is working I dream of a 2018 top 5 pick.....ORHD, another first, and several seconds...............will that happen who knows? But it is possible! Ending up with an extra pick in the first round of 2019 would just about do it! I could see where Benning starts looking for size....not huge, but 6'2" 210 # defenceman (2018 1st), and another center in 2019 first round.......and then all the other picks, it would be something! This is not to mention Benning doesn't get another pick in one of these drafts by trading a 2020 1st, if he thinks he is deep enough and we are high enough in the standings to make a bolder move....... My dream all happens within the next 2 years............... But as for the last couple of years.....I am pretty happy with Benning! Admittedly it took some time.....but we are well on our way! Now we just have to get Tryamkin back! These are my reasons for thinking he is doing a great job!
  2. Just think for a second.......without any more trades, the Canucks who have ranked in the top 10 in prospects with several agencies, will have the next 2 years drafting in the top 10, if not the top 5.........................That is a Offensive Dman and an Offensive Center.............that is with out any of our other picks from those years turning out or any picks from any trades We just don't need RNH in our rebuild. Certainly not for any 1st round picks!
  3. Just a great article on the amount of picks vs draft success.............well worth the read! http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/the-value-of-acquiring-nhl-draft-picks-at-the-trade-deadline/ The reason I have posted this is first off, the amount of discussion around trading vets for picks during a rebuild and secondly to illustrate why Benning's success has improved at the draft table compared to say Gillis or other GM's that continually trade picks for promises......... No other great opinion, just wanted to share this with you......it is a little older now, but it does bring home the point.
  4. I too, do not think RNH should be a Canuck, at least for long! But I do think if we can get RNH for Sutter, but we should flip him.................My opinion in that some teams do not have what Edmonton needs so they can not directly trade with that team, but...............I see no problem with obtaining RNH , then flipping to a team like Montreal, Phili, Ottawa or Dallas, who all either have older veteran centers or older veteran centers on expiring contract......or simply just need the up grading........To get what we want, we may hold a little cap 1 to 2 million....... But the return could be greater than the sum of the parts...... Trade #1 Brandon Sutter + (Pedan/McEneny/Dorsett) to Edmonton for RNH Trade #2 RNH 20% retained + J Subban to Montreal for 2018 1st and Juulsen People question Sutters value, but he does a lot of little things right, is a face off man, can play pp, and can go up and down the line up as a winger. Is he a high end offensive juggernaut ?....No, but he a very versatile player, and will thrive on a club with more mature players, who are on a playoff run. Teams like that need players like him. RNH on the other hand needs to be put in a Offensive role and in a environment that will enhance his skills......I think Montreal and the other teams listed have the ability to help him do that...... The reason I picked Montreal is they can't wait.....their window is now and RNH fits Just a thought
  5. Well, not saying this is a perfect trade....just wanted to start some debate on it............ Tanev is exactly what Arizona needs to complete their defensive core, and with the young core of very strong young players, they would be in position with their extra cap space to go out and sign a veteran or 2 and start competing.......I think they deserve that, and I don't think that is too far fetched For the Canucks................once the Sedins leave we have a void that should take 2 or 3 years to replace (Hopefully that short of time), so my thought is we have the time to completely shape an very close to complete defense. PO Joseph, is 2 to 3 years away, which co-insides with the other part of our rebuild, and he would be considered a late 1st in the 2018 draft, or 2 seconds in value, and the first is the gamble each team takes to impact their team, if it is what I think it would be, then it brings us in us a 17 OA ish pick, it should be a very decent pick, if its a 23 OA of less, than that is the risk, but still a first in a strong draft.....as for Schenn, he fills the void for the year, left by trading Tanev short term, and is a UFA at years end.... Perfect trade .....no, but a decent starting point
  6. So if I have this right WH.......Trump is showing the world how stupid and ugly the American political system really is? And why they have to change? Paraphrasing.....but is that right? Because I would agree with that!
  7. Hi Everyone Has anyone thought that Arizona may just need that good veteran RHD who can compliment the other 3.......I think Tanev does this and makes them a playoff contender....this coming year, and as their young guys strengthen, they move up the ladder to compete with the big boys.......please note I said "playoff " contender not "Cup" contender My proposal is this........... Van - Tanev for Arz - P.O. Joseph (2017 - 23 OA) + 2018 1st (unprotected) + Luke Schenn I have a bigger plan,,,,,,,but this is the start..............lol 5th OA..................RH Defencemen 17th OA............... Best forward Available 34th OA............... RH Defenceman Our future Dmen would be complete and would we most likely would have an excess of good young Dman My though about this trade is we probably add 3 future NHLers within the first 34 picks of a strong draft, and we also add PO Jeseph, which is the 4th high draft addition......this does not include what Benning may be able to pick from the 3 to 7th rounds................. That is 8 very good prospects in 2 years, without stretching the truth..............10 if you add the Players from the Hansen and Burrows trades (Goldobin + Dahlen) Luke Schenn is a UFA at the end of the year, and we can decide our next moves at that time.............If Tryamkin comes back, we put him on the right side? I would be interested in this! Short term pain for long term gain Either way....that's a good start to a rebuild!
  8. Thank you Joe! As I think you are our elder statesman (I say that at 60 years of age and with a lot of respect for you!). I think your mind and wisdom, is a good thing to share on this multi age platform.......the fact that I agree or disagree with you from time to time, has nothing to do with your value to me or this site. Thanks Paul PS...............my son lives in Rupert, are you still in Smithers? I would love to have coffee when I fly up that way.... Then you can hear all my fantastic ideas! lol Seriously Joe, Thank you!
  9. This is a good list.......favorite one...........but Essensa? Really? LOL
  10. I like the premise Nux but I would like to change the players on our end Edler @ 50% + Baertschi + conditional 2019 3rd for Orpik, Vrana, and 2018 1st
  11. OK, I understand that, and agree with you, on that part, but you are a smart guy, and I would bet you liked Tryamkin from the first time you seen him, am I right? Who do you think has more potential............... Tryamkin Stecher Hutton To be honest, Stecher blew me away, and if he was 6'1" my bet is he would be an allstar.....love him! Hutton, looks to me to have a 3/4 ceiling, and I want to keep him long term But, Tryamkin looked to me, as having a dominant ceiling.......I mean for cricky sakes, he was a rookie, out of shape, inexperienced on the small ice (in comparison to the other 2) and he still looked to have an amazing ceiling, and this was no more apparent then by how teams played him....some wanted to just go down the other side, some teams, wanted to test him (they failed) and others tried too intimidate him.....none of which worked So, yes...........he may have demanded more, but lets give him a little credit.......I think he knew his value at the beginning and darn sure he knew it at the end.......I don't think Willy knew it, and I think Benning was a afraid to have a young rookie upset his internal player cap, with Bo's and Gudbranson's contracts coming up..... It is only my opinion, but Tryamkin was worth alot We just gave Del Zotto $3,000,000 for "F's" sake! And that is pretty much give or take 1/2 a million, what he is worth..... If you had a choice are you taking Del Zotto or Tryamkin....................I am taking Tryamkin 10 out of 10 And that is why I am so adamant........ Guddy got 3.5.............and didn't show us anything due to injury..........Is Tryamkin more or less............I think more! I am probably one of the biggest Tryamkin fans on here...............we need to get him back............and asap!
  12. Sorry Zepp, but I have to agree with The Guardian.......Tryamkin was mishandled, and by the end of the season, he had at least one foot out the door.......was the next step instigated by a poor contract offer..............maybe he just lost faith in the organization (aka Benning and Linden) I have to say that the first time I seen Tryamkin on the ice, he was exciting to watch, and I remember saying that "just wait until he has a year or 2 under his belt!" Rookies make mistakes, but Tryamkin improved the whole year....imagine his 2nd year!!! Imagine if he was still here.........would you have been happier with him than Del Zotto? I think so.....if you think he was better, with more upside, than how much more than Del Zotto?........Was he worth 3.5 to 4 million?....................personally, I think he was! Del Zotto, who has reached his apex is paid 3 million My gut says, Benning wouldn't pay him what he wanted...........he said he might as well be home with his friends and family.............if Benning plays it right, Tryamkin will be back........I friggin hope!
  13. Hank and Dank both 80+ pts Del Zotto 35 pts Gaunce 9 goals Canucks.............................86 points
  14. As we will be rebuilding for hopefully just 2 more years (wishful thinking), I am all about BPA also, but in saying that.......I would really like a top end ORHD, so I am watching Bode Wilde......................Ranked #7 by Future Considerations August 2017 Ryan Merkley..................Ranked #8 by Future Considerations " " Adam Boqvist..................Ranked #14 by Future Considerations " " Jett Woo..........................Ranked #17 by Future Considerations " " Evan Bouchard................Ranked #18 by Future Considerations " " Way too early to set our sites on any of them.......there may even be a late riser (there always is).....it will be fun to watch That being said, there are some pretty good RHD right up into the middle of the first round. And 1 OA and 2 OA are a given at this point. LOL, watch us get the 3rd OA pick........just watch! I wouldn't complain, but its Canuck luck!
  15. I love the list...I love that we have the 7th best prospect pool But it just brings me back to the fact we should be moving more veterans for picks As we need to be up higher in that rankings to be a future contender I would really like to see us move a couple more vets for picks And I would really like to hear Benning talk more about keeping in touch with Tryamkin
