JB: "We had calls on Zack but it's hard to find a player with his size & skill. The last two weeks have been a big step in right direction."

Is the pick we gave up in the trade a 2015 2nd or 2017 2nd? Everyone on CDC says it is a 2017 and on NHL.com it says its a 2017.

Was the traded pick a 2nd 2015, or a 2nd 2017? Sportsnet reported it as 2015, but I keep seeing posts about it being 2017.

A little surprised Gross Misconduct and LoLClarkson aren't huddled in a corner in each others' arms knowing Kassian is now and will be a Canuck and maiming teams in the process for the foreseeable future. Gonna have to invnet new rumours and insinutations aout his character I guess to get by eh guys?

    he said that they were trying to stock this franchise with more good players in the 22 to 26 age bracket...they could easily move out players for picks at the end of the season...bieksa, kassian and a goalie.

    He didn't say he was trying to dump Kassian. He said he phoned a few teams to see if they would part with certain players for him.

    he said that teams had called him about several players and that they may have talked to some teams about what they would trade for kassian...he said if players were involved that could give what kassian gives and a little more they would consider it...i'm sure that they don't feel that kassian's play, although pretty good, is something he can keep up...just my thought...they know more about the player than we do...

Interesting the Benning thinks the 2016 NHL draft is deeper than this years. Did some research. There are 10 98 born players in the WHL averaging over .75 PPG. Also there is Sean Day and Jakob Churych who are suppose to be excellent prospects out of the OHL

    I would have to agree with him. so far

    ^^^ but the fact that they are already producing at about a PPG says something

    I think we could get Jake Bean next year. He's a great PMD who plays with the Hitmen. I've been watching Virtanen play a lot and one thing that stood out on Hitmen's d is Jake Bean. He's a great PMD, decent size, PPQB, and is projected around the mid-to late first round. Only thing he needs to do is add weight. His frame is alright at 6'0.

    id grab him.

Bruins traded 2 2nd round picks for Connolly. Nucks trade 1 2nd for Baertschi. JB playing chess while some are learning checkers.

    It seems like most fans like the trade. I admit, I haven't known much about Baertschi the past few years, but my first reaction was that it was a bad trade. Is Baertschi really the type of player we need?

    baerschi played for green when playing for portland winter hawks...his numbers were very good..he said coach green was excited to get him on utica...hopefully he can help sven, get his mojo back...worth a try.

    Lovejoy is a better depth defender and has history with pittsburgh while Despres won't reach his top 4 potential

    @Warhippy Rypien was soft? I don't even.....@PhillipBlunt it's not an obsession it's wanting a team that will succeed in the pacific division without getting pushed around for the countless season...

When it comes to what he needs to develop; think of Sven Baerstchi as a reverse Zack Kassian; not alot of grit, but fast, great hands and will put up points, its just a matter of how many.

Someone should start a cap floor thread involving teams that now have to scramble to meet that cap floor. IN all seriousness there's a serious market now for teams to PAY to have contracts offloaded and some teams will get paid hard for it
