I wish MG does NOT sign Ehrhoff. He is such a defensive liability despite playing against a teams 2nd or 3rd line.

For the 4th line there needs to be some re-tooling and I would sign impending UFA's Cam Janssen and Brad Winchester. Both play 4th line and Winchester has the ability to move up as he has scored 14 goals. Both add much needed size and toughness.

what I would do this offseason:

Higgins, Torres, Bieksa, Alberts (keep); Salo (let walk unless inexpensive & healthy)

Ehrhoff (let walk)

Glass (undecided; he can walk I guess)

Wish list:

Versteeg: to play with Kesler and Burrows on 2nd to provide a decent shooter who's aggressive in driving to the net WITH CUP EXPERIENCE and the necessary SWAGGER, plus Philly needs to unload salaries so the Canucks may be able to steal him for cheaper (or pry him from the Panthers, either way shouldn't cost too much)

PITKANEN: Big minute, all-round defender who's physical and has booming slap shot; definite upgrade on Ehrhoff

Danny - Henrik – (Joel Ward-type big scoring winger)
(Versteeg) - Kesler - Burrows
(Higgins) - Malhotra - Hansen
(Torres) - Lapierre - Oreskovich

Hamhuis – (Bieksa)
Edler – (Pitkanen)
(Montador)/Ballard? – Tanev?/Rome?/Alberts?/(UFA?/Salo?/Acquisition in trade?)


for trades, offer Ballard, Raymond, Samuelsson, maybe Schneider (if the right offer came then include him)

(player) = Canuck UFA to retain
(player) = player to sign/trade for

First off KB is not going anywhere he showed how much of a beast he can be when healthy and when paired with Hamhuis shows his puck moving ability.

Re- signings
KB 4.00m over 3-4yrs
Shirokov 1.00m over 2-3yrs
Hansen 1.25m over 2-3yrs
Lapierre 1.10m over 2-3yrs
Oreskovich .70m over 2-3yrs

Now this is where Gillis can become a God amongst his peers:


1st in 2011


Rights to Parise

Turn around and sign him to a lucrative front loaded contract with a cap hit no more than 5.5m per season

For Gillis's next move he does this:


2nd in 2011
1st in 2012


Rights to Weber

Sign him for the same lucrative contract as Parise with a cap hit no more than 5.5m

Gillis may have to sacrifice a few more spare parts but we would have everthing we would need for the next 5yrs

Daniel Sedin ($6.100m) / Henrik Sedin ($6.100m) / Alexandre Burrows ($2.000m)
Sergei Shirokov ($1.000m) / Ryan Kesler ($5.000m) / Zach Parise ($5.500m)
Cody Hodgson ($1.666m) / Manny Malhotra ($2.500m) / Jannik Hansen ($1.250m)
Aaron Volpatti ($0.612m) / Maxim Lapierre ($1.100m) / Victor Oreskovich ($0.700m)
/ Kellan Tochkin ($0.532m)

Dan Hamhuis ($4.500m) / Kevin Bieksa ($4.000m)
Alexander Edler ($3.250m) / Shea Weber ($5.500m)
Keith Ballard ($4.200m) / Chris Tanev ($0.900m)
/ Yann Sauve ($0.875m)

Roberto Luongo ($5.333m) / Cory Schneider ($0.900m)

Really bad deal to Nashville

Hey all, to keep this thread from getting locked, I will attempt to be discreet with what I am asking so the younger posters who may stumble across this thread back out of it not sure what to think.

So I am going camping with my girlfriend and a couple friends in a few days. Now, I know my girlfriend will want to play on the playground quite a few times each day, and we are going for 3 days. However, we will be drinking liquor during these three days, and it might make it hard for myself to play on the playground. That's not the worry though, the worry is, how do I stay on the playground for a respectable amount of time? I've heard from some male friends that liquor makes it easier to stay on the playground longer, but getting to the playground may come sooner than expected. So what are some things I can do to make sure that be-fore playing and the actual playing on the playground doesn't end too soon?

Oh yeah, New Jersey is going to trade away Parise's rights for a player who was just injured less than a week ago.

Devils get hosed in that deal big time.

The first pick is #29.

Schroeder has never played in the NHL.

Nashville GM David Poile would visit you with a bat in his hand. :rolleyes:

Wow this post is very difficult to sift through now that pretty much the whole forum was dumped into it.

I understand why the mod's did it but this is painful to navigate through, we should have just deleted it all and started anew.

Pretty simple lineup. Re-sign Bieksa, sign Laich and promote from within.

With the money left over, I'd try to sign Torres or another player like him to play 4th line LW and fill in for Raymond (who I assume will miss the first month or two of the season).


Daniel Sedin ($6.100m) / Henrik Sedin ($6.100m) / Alexandre Burrows ($2.000m)
Brooks Laich ($4.000m) / Ryan Kesler ($5.000m) / Mikael Samuelsson ($2.500m)
Mason Raymond ($2.550m) / Manny Malhotra ($2.500m) / Jannik Hansen ($1.400m)
Aaron Volpatti ($0.612m) / Maxim Lapierre ($1.250m) / Victor Oreskovich ($0.650m)
Jeff Tambellini ($0.600m)

Dan Hamhuis ($4.500m) / Kevin Bieksa ($4.500m)
Alexander Edler ($3.250m) / Keith Ballard ($4.200m)
Aaron Rome ($0.750m) / Chris Tanev ($0.900m)
Ryan Parent ($0.925m) / Lee Sweatt ($0.750m)

Resign Maxim Lapierre to a one-two year deal (I think he would accept given lots of teams don't want him on their team) he was a good fit in the playoffs and good agitator with speed.

Resign Raffi Torres-Again part of that thrid line that was arguably are most consistent line in the entire playoffs.

Resign Jannick Hansen-Enough said this guy has blinding speed and fits well on the thrid line.

As much as it pains me to say it because he did play well in spurts throughout the playoffs let Higgins Walk.

Let go of Glass the fourth line didn't do much these playoffs for us and glass in particular i felt didn't play that great.

Resign Rypien if we can finally work it out between him and the organization he's a good fit on the fourth line.

Resign Tambellini preferablly to a two way contract if possible

Trade Samuelsson if possible.

Forward Core

D. Sedin-H. Sedin-A. Burrows

M. Raymond-Kesler-?????

R. Torres-M Lapierre/M. Maholtra-J. Hansen

??????-M. Lapierre/M. Maholtra-?????????

Given this I see us as Requiring one ELITE top 6 forward (preferably someone with size on Kesler's Line)

The two wing spots on the fourth line would be revolving (Mabye sign one tough guy in off season and the other wing
would be filled by a Moose Call up.) and M. Maholtra and M. Lapierre would switch between centering the third and fourth line.

Defence Core

Resign Bieska

Let Erhroff Walk

Let Alberts Walk

Trade Ballard

Resign Salo


Bring Tanev up Full Time

K. Bieska-D. Hamhuis

A. Edler-S. Weber

S. Salo-C. Tanev

A. Rome


Keep Lu and Schneids together for one more year before making a decision on them.

This is my ideal team, all I think we need is another star dman, one elite top 6 forward and mabye a gritty guy
for the fourth line.

If they don't price themselves too highly, I'd like to see Bieksa and Ehrhoff come back.

I'd let Salo and Rypien walk. I doubt either of them are in the Canucks' plans.

I'm indifferent to Glass, Torres, and Tambellini, but they're okay foot soldiers.

Yes, Opus would be proud.........He's probably watching the games with Bill the Cat and Steve Dallas, somewhere in Bloom County, he probably has his cup of tea and he is wearing the Canucks third jersey because its "politically correct". After games, the three of them sit around and debate why the needless violence in sports is necessary with Steve Dallas always being the voice of reason on such matters. Bill the Cat is still sitting around licking his a*se and coughing up hairballs, looking forward to drinking milk out of the great silver chalice. Ahh life is good in Bloom County..........Carry on for Vancouver, Opus, carry on.

There's no way you can get Weber, and Schneider will get traded at the draft or more likely, make sure Eddie Lack can step up and be the back-up, so that would mean keeping Schneider for 20 games or so to get Lack ready, and then trade him for a lot. I agree we need size on Kesler's line, you didn't mention Tambellini, but he's gone. Glass is gone for sure he was useless. I know he's a great guy, but he needs to be able to stand up for players as well, and he can't, so we need someone who will stand up, not an enforcer, just someone with toughness. Hodgson will be up next year from the start.

Rypien sucks. No need to bring Lappy back if he's going to clog up our prospects. I would rather have our prospects get a chance to make the team. No mention of Hodgson, Shirokov, Sweatt, Bolduc, Schroeder etc. We need a top 6 winger, but it will be hard to bring someone in with cap. Also, in terms of realizing what Weber means to Nashville, asking somehow to get Weber is like a Nashville fan asking somehow to get Ryan Kesler from us. In other words, it's unreasonable to expect the Canucks to sign the likes of Weber or Parise.

i agree mostly with this except......
Higgens has to stay he is a great threat and can sometimes bring a big body.

Glass and ehroff leaving Agreed.
samulesson trade agreed balled too agreed

In my opinion raymond waz not performing in the playoffs i would trade him at the deadline when he will be healthy.

i love the defense but... No way will weber will sign with us cuz of how deep we r
he waz out there like every other shift for nashville we wont put him out there as much as anthor team would

No 1st pick in 2010-2011-2012. This franchise will hit rock bottom in 5 years and for a long time.

Connauton has no value anywhere except on CDC.

Bieksa and Torres are at the top of my list. I want Rypien in the 4th line too. He's young, fast and tough. He can be taught. I would have loved his toughness against the Bruins, I'm pretty sure he could have played Glass's 4 minutes

i would do these deals if they were signed, but if you don't sign the players yourself and they leave it would be the worst trades ever.
