  1. 5-4-3-2-1 Canucks pick from 1st to 5th!

    I am guessing the top 4 will shake out like this: 1 - Vegas 2 - Colorado 3 - Arizona 4 - Vancouver
  2. Think the Islanders have any interest in Miller? Maybe Miller for Halak + 2nd / 3rd rounder or a B prospect
  3. Curious if he will attempt to move Miller and / or Sbisa. I am sure Edler wont be moved but hopefully he also moves Megna, Skille, Larsen etc for later round picks
  4. Granted the ED is important I am sure there will be some teams that throw caution to the wind and make a push for the cup. Sure you may lose a player to the ED but if the team won the cup surely they wouldn't be that upset at losing said player.
  5. [Waivers] LAK - G Jeff Zatkoff

    I wonder if Benning would try to acquire 2018 picks if that draft is supposed to be deeper or if he is going with 2017. If there is much salary retention then Benning should try to squeeze out a first rounder. It will be late due to Anaheim being in the playoffs but Bernier stinks after his leafs stint and Miller give Anaheim a much needed solid backup / Guy who can take the reigns if Gibson stinks down the stretch
  6. [Trade] Fiddler to Preds for a 4th

    I wonder if Benning would consider a 2018 pick for Hansen - if thats considered a stronger draft, not 100% sure
  7. Figured after todays news that Datsyuk is returning to Detroit that perhaps both teams can help each other out. Not sure if its entirely balanced, but maybe its something that could use some tweaking: To Detroit Alex Burrows (maybe 10% retained) To Vancouver 2016 2nd Round Pick (#46) 2016 4th Round Pick (#106) Datsyuks Contract Basically Vancouver would be taking on an extra 3m in Cap Space from Detroit & they are gaining said cap space + a player who can fill in on the bottom 6. Not sure if a 2nd + 4th is too rich, if it is maybe Van can retain some cap on Burrows / add in a C level prospect / later round pick It is probably too lopsided in Vancouvers favour but seems like a decent deal both ways and is essentially freeing up cap space for Detroit to pursue some UFA & won't cost them a prospect in the system. Vancouver recoups a mid 2nd round pick and a 4th pick to stock pile the minor system up again. Another option I thought about was a Higgins swap (instead of Burrows) and this gives Detroit even more flexibility as Higgins cap hit is 2.5m (although not sure if he has 1 more remaining year after this upcoming season). Anyway - is this too lopsided for Vancouver, Detroit giving up too much for cap space or is it more likely Datsyuk contrack + midling prospect for scraps?
  8. Any chance Chiarelli does Benning a solid and flips no4 for Edler + some further along prospects (Maybe Guance & someone else?) Would be a sweet situation adding both Tkachuk & PLD almost building your 2nd line in one draft (based on both guys panning out). In actual reality is Edlers worth a late first (say 23 - 30) and either a 2nd / 3rd? Not saying they should move Edler but a return like that would hurt next year but it seems like smart asset management to get something for the guy now and in 2 - 3 years your new core will start playing together
  9. I think with the way Hammer is playing he could fetch a 1st from a playoff club looking to win the cup and potentially a B level prospect. Vrbata hasnt been great & has a not so stellar playoff reputation but could land a 2nd & maybe a 4th / 5th as i can see a club taking a chance on him. Hard to see Weber / Higgins / Prust getting anything back but maybe future considerations or a 7th round pick. As for my opinion i think its for the best that the canucks sell at the deadline as injuries to key players and allow some other younger players ice time on the big club. Teams i think benning should target are NYI, Dallas, Washington, NYR & LA
  10. Doubt it would go through but offer Columbus whatever 2nd round pick they have to forfeit to Van for Tortorella for Rychel.
  11. Thought potentially Washington could have been a trade partner for Vancouver for depth forward or dmen. It wasn't likely to begin with but with this signing I can't see it at all unless Benning can pull off an insane deal. This is a decent signing, not sure how strong he is on faceoffs anymore but can probably be decent still as a 4th line guy and potentially on the PK. For how low risk this is for the caps (just a bit of cap) and for a guy that should be highly motivated to get his career going again this could turn out to be a really solid move by the caps
  12. Not to be a stickler but i mention 5 guys as possible trade bait and also say that not all of these guys will get moved & indicated that NTC/NMCs will be a problem. To answer your charge though my best guess would have been buffalo a year or so ago didnt they move Miller, Ott, Moulson, Vanek and possibly some other players? Either way they maxed out what they could have
  13. If the club is struggling along and Henrik / Miller are out for an extended period of time then it only makes sense by the TDL to move some players for prospects / picks and attempt to get yourself a better pick come june. Its pretty unfortunate that Hamhuis got hurt and is out for awhile as I'd say he is a guy that could do what Vermette did last year (traded for a late 1st + prospect, unless this is over valuing Hamhuis). If I was Benning I'd look at moving these pieces: Hamhuis -> Late 1st + Prospect, if this is over valuing then maybe a 2nd + prospect or just a good prospect. Figured a 1st wouldn't be out of the question come TDL and he potentially puts a contender over the top. Not really sure where he could go, MAYBE the Islanders since they are looking at moving Hamonic maybe Hamhuis would be appealing. Burrows ->2nd / 3rd. I'd hate to move this guy as he is a Canuck through & through but at this point having Guance or Grenier up to play on the 3rd (move Hansen up on the 1st line) seems beneficial to the team & player (can those guys handle that spot) doubt they have the space but wonder if NYR would be a club interested in reuniting Burrows with AV. Vrbata -> 1st rounder. If he can get on a bit of a streak and pot around 15 goals I believe this would be fair value, again to a contending club that has asperations to go far into the post season adding a Vrbata could round out their scoring and put them over the top. Nashville might be a decent trading partner to flesh out their attack a bit more, although not sure how much interest / if Poile would be keen on flipping a 1st for Vrbata. Edler is kind of in no mans land. Not sure Benning could get the full / proper value for him and it is doubtful he would waive his NTC. Its not a bad thing to have to 'keep' Edler around considering he wants to be here. Higgins -> 4th / 5th - attempt to recoup the 5th we traded to MTL for Prust Prust ->5th - again attempt to recoup the 5th we traded for him. Nothing against the guy but pending UFA, might be useful to a team looking to add a solid 4th line grinder / PK specialist. Obviously not all of these guys will get moved but I believe that if Benning & Co. felt that this draft was more loaded compared to 2015 then it makes more sense to make some of these moves to bring in additional picks to fill the cupboard up. Main issue that he has is NTCs / NMCs but if a guy has a shot at a cup I'd have to believe they would take a shot at it over playing out the stretch on a team that is (most likely) out of a playoff spot and obviously looking at going younger anyway
  14. [Official] 2015 Canucks Draft Talk

    Cant say ive seen a ton of either of them play but if Harkins / Juulsen say Vancouver is their favourite club then iam all for attempting to bring them in the field
  15. [Rumor] Ryan Miller to Vancouver Thread

    He won a cup at the age of 39 I believe Deniro Saying that Vancouver of 2014-2015 is not nearly as good as Bost of 2010-2011
