  1. I think Bennign is trying to acquire two top 5 picks in order to draft a puck moving power play defenseman and top 6 centre. this would definitely speed up our rebuild. If we are taking on a bad contract then Tanev and Columbus' second nothing more.
  2. Well, when you have Edler, Hutton, Gudbranson, Tryamkin, Stecher, Joulevi, you pick Liljegren/Makar in the draft and your a rebuilding team then yeah I'd say Tanev is expandable. Maybe read the initial post in this thread and you'll get an idea of why Tanev could be traded.
  3. Fair is what I was going for, neither teams get fleeced and the trades help their teams for the better.
  4. This is a nice lineup, size, skill, toughness and heart. We'd still have Goldobin, Dahlen, Gaudette, Liljegren, and Demko to add to the mix.
  5. Buffalo "can" get a top pairing defensemen but who's going to trade their top pairing defensemen for Reinhart. Top pairing defensemen is what every team needs to contend for the cup. They come at a premium. Would you trade Keith, Doughty, OEL, or Hedman and "more" for Reinhart? With this offer Buffalo gets a great penalty killer, great faceoff man, you solidify their backend; they have Ristolainen (top-pairing defensemen), McCabe, Bogosian, Kulikov, Franson, and now add Sbisa to the mix. The two 2nd's one of which is basically a late first and your telling me they wouldn't go for that offer.
  6. I believe we should trade Sbisa, Sutter and our two 2nd's (I'm pretty sure Columbus will give us the 2nd this year because next year is a deeper draft) for Reinhart. In Sutter, they are getting a great PK and face off guy and with Sbisa it helps solidify their defence. Now you add in the two seconds, one of which is going to be between the 32-36 picks and I believe this could be a good hockey trade that helps both teams. We may need to take some salary back but that shouldn't be a problem. To Canucks: Sam Reinhart (Salary offset) To Buffalo: Sutter Sbisa 2nd round pick (Canucks) 2nd round pick (Columbus) I think signing Eriksson was a mistake, the pressure of producing with the Sedins or just producing in general has gotten to him. Like Vrbata, I think he would better produce on a different team. Trade him to whoever and for whatever you can get for him. Or maybe ask him to waive his NMC and expose him in the expansion draft and make a deal with Vegas to take Eriksson. If not, then this would leave Gaunce, Biega, and Bachman exposed for the draft and I think Vegas takes Gaunce. (I know we need to expose 2 forwards but I'm not sure who else would be eligible) Now as as for the draft I believe the Canucks should target Liljegren. This would help solidify our defence for the future. Joulevi, Liljegren, Hutton, Gudbranson, Tryamkin and Stecher - a good mix of size and skill. With the addition of Liljegren I believe we can now go ahead and trade Tanev, think Larsson for Hall. The player I'm hoping the Canucks should target is Max Domi. The Coyotes have come out and said they want help on the right side for OEL and Tanev would complement the offensive Ekman-Larsson perfectly. However, I do think Arizona should add to the trade because Tanev is an established top pairing defensive-defenseman where as Max Domi isn't quite there just yet. To Canucks: Max Domi (Pick) To Arizona: Tanev Lineup Domi - Reinhart - ? Baertschi - Horvat - Granlund Sedin - Sedin - ? Cramarossa - Chaput - Dorsett Edler - Stecher Hutton - Gudbranson Tryamkin - ? 50/50 Split Miller (Assuming re-signed) Markstrom Now we are left with Goldobin, Boeser, Virtanen, Subban or a stop gap UFA Defensemen to fill in the ?'s. If Virtanen needs another season in Utica I'm all for it; he's been playing pretty well lately and hopefully with another year in Utica his offence picks up. Add Dahlen, Gaudette, Joulevi, Liljegren, Demko and our 2018 1st round pick to the mix and the future looks bright. What do you guys think?
  7. Find me the number and I'll get on it right away LOL. Sometimes I feel CDC should have a rep in contact with the Canucks front office just to insure they don't miss out on certain opportunities.
  8. I'm not sold on Duchene, I was thinking more along the lines of Domi for Tanev. Arizona has come out and said they want help on the right side with OEL, Tanev would fit in perfectly. But I think Arizona should add a pick coming back our way. Yes they have Chychrun but he isn't quite ready for a first pairing role. Also, if you read my earlier post I think Sbisa, Sutter, and our two 2nd's for Reinhart would be great for the Canucks as well as Buffalo. It helps both teams, the Canucks with a young centerman and Buffalo with help on the PK, faceoffs and on defensive side. Remember our own 2nd round pick is going to be in the 32-36 range basically a late first, add in the Columbus 2nd and it's a pretty good trade. We might need to eat some salary but I'm sure we can pull it off.
  9. Oh I swear I heard 3rd or better for new expansion. Regardless, I still think they should take Liljegren to solidify our defence for the future. By doing so, we can trade Tanev for help upfront, think Hall for Larsson.
  10. Oh my bad I swear I heard 3rd or better for new expansion team.
  11. ? - ? - ? Baertschi - Horvat - Granlund Sedin - Sedin - ? Cramarossa - Chaput - Dorsett Edler - Tanev Hutton - Gudbranson Tryamkin - Stecher 50/50 Split Miller Markstrom Trade Pieces Sutter Eriksson Sbisa Expansion Draft Gaunce Biega Bachman 2017 Draft Liljegren Now we are left with Goldobin, Boeser, and Virtanen to fill in the ?'s however, we are still missing our top line centre. Yeah I know Horvat is playing more and more like a 1st liner but I think he'll be absolutely great as our 2C. We'll still have Dahlen and Gaudette in Utica who will be ready to step up once the Sedins retire. I believe we should trade Sbisa, Sutter and our two 2nd's (I'm pretty sure Columbus will give us the 2nd this year because next year is a deeper draft) for Reinhart. In Sutter, they are getting a great PK and face off guy and with Sbisa it helps solidify their defence. Now you add in the two seconds, one of which is going to be between the 32-36 picks and I believe this could be a good hockey trade that helps both teams. We may need to take some salary back but that shouldn't be a problem. I think signing Eriksson was a mistake, the pressure of producing with the Sedins or just producing in general has gotten to him. Like Vrbata, I think he would better produce on a different team. Trade him to whoever and for whatever you can get for him. This would leave Gaunce, Biega, and Bachman exposed for the draft. Las Vegas take your pick. Now as as for the draft I don't think we are getting a top 3 pick, with vegas guaranteed 3rd or better it kind of screws us. So, I believe the Canucks should target Liljegren. This would help solidify our defence for the future. Joulevi, Liljegren, Hutton, Gudbranson, Tryamkin and Stecher - a good mix of size and skill. While we wait on Joulevi and Liljegren to develop and step up we still have Edler and Tanev holding the fort. When they are good and ready, trade Tanev for scoring help upfront and let Edler walk or trade at deadline in his final year. This would be ideal for the future, let's just hope Linden and/or Benning frequent this forum.
  12. Our team hasn't been entirely healthy for most of the season and yet here we are only a point behind Calgary for the final wildcard spot with two games in hand. With the next two games against the lowly Avalanche and Coyotes, I am confident we will take over one of those wildcard spots heading into the All-Star break. I believe Willie said Hansen should be back after the All-Star break giving our lineup a boost and solidifying our chances for the playoffs. Since the start of the season a number of players have come a long way including Granlund, Stetcher, Tryamkin, Sbisa, and a rejuvenated Burrows. When Hutton and Gudbranson are back, baring any other significant injuries to the lineup you have to admit we have a pretty solid group. With the progression of certain players and a healthy lineup I see us making some noise come playoff time. The only thing I see working against us is our schedule after the All-Star break, but again I have faith in our group and you should too. -Doogie
  13. To Montreal: Edler Hansen Virtanen To Canucks: Pacioretty 17' 2nd Round Pick Canucks are trading from a position of strength with how Stecher and Tryamkin are coming along. We also have Juolevi in the pipeline. Rumors are Montreal are looking to move Pacioretty and are looking for help on D. Virtanen is going the other way while Hansen can play up and down Montreal's lineup. To Colorado: Tanev To Canucks: Landeskog Again, trading from position of strength. Colorado could use the help on D and with Landeskog coming back our way we get more scoring. Hall is a better scorer than Landeskog while Tanev is a better Dman than Larson, so why not. Maybe we get a pick coming back our way. Lineup: Landeskog-Horvat-Pacioretty Sedin-Sedin-Eriksson Baertschi-Sutter-Granlund Burrows-Gaunce-Dorsett Tryamkin-Stecher Hutton-Gudbranson Sbisa-Larsen You're probably wondering about cap space, but with Burrows contract up at the end of they year and resigned at a far lower cap hit, as well as Millers coming off the books we could make this work. The following year the Sedins come off their contracts and we sign them to a 2 year contract around 5 mil each, that saves us another 4 mil. Even if we lose Granlund or Baertschi in the expansion again we still have Boeser in the pipeline. These trades would put us right back into contention for the foreseeable future, couple that with Bennings drafting and the future looks bright. We would probably still need to sign a D or two via free agency/college for depth. What do you guys think could these trades work, if not what would make them work. Discuss and/or bash.
  14. Tanev + Virtanen + Brisebois + Burrows + 5th O/A for Subban + 9th O/A + 39th O/A Edler + Hansen for 10th O/A (Colorado) Sbisa + Higgins + 39th O/A for Dallas 25th O/A 9th O/A = Sergachev 10th O/A = Jost 25th O/A = Benson Top Prospects Boeser Jost Benson Demko Future Line up Benson-Jost-Boeser Baertschi-Horvat-UFA Signing Sedin-Sedin-Sutter Gaunce-Granlund-Grenier Sergachev-Subban Hutton-Gudbranson (Below)-Tryamkin Below=Larsen/Subban/Stecher Markstrom Demko .... and then I woke up.
  15. If we're able to pick up 3 assets, 9th (Logan Brown) + Gallagher + whoever in the second, wouldn't that improve our team more so than just the 5th oa? Couple this with the addition of a free agent signing (Lucic, Eriksson, Okposo, Boedker) and no doubt we are a playoff team.
