Schneider alone is worth the first pick.

Some of you need to realize that players in the top 5 pick are not automatics to make the team the year they get drafted. AV will not give this guy any slack if he finds him unready or other players being better (as he did with CoHo, and yeah I know he was drafted #10)

We are a top team with lots of good players that makes it tough for kids coming through.

So question remains, would you trade Cory for a guy who may play a couple years from now?

I'm a little hesitant right now, Yakupov took a really nasty elbow to the head a couple games ago, unfortunately he's a question mark right now.

I'd be down for picking up the first overall pick (haha who wouldn't?) and then packaging it for a 4-10 pick. Let us pick up a solid defensive prospect and a roster player.

I have to agree with Provost that Luongo is a more proven entity but disagree 100% that Lou is the better goalie...hes not...by a country mile !!

We most definitely should trade for it. Yakupov's favorite team is the Canucks. I'd do Schneider and two firsts.

You are crazy if you think Schneider alone could get that first overall pick. If you have a chance to make that trade and you're the Canucks, you take it and RUN!!!!!!!!!

Why would we trade for a 1st pick and guess instead of someone who allready rapes right now


Yeah for sure Schneider "rapes" in all of big the 20 games he gets a season. If Luongo stays we have to move Schneider and Yakupov would be an amazing return.

Honestly, I'm not so sure I wouldn't pick Grigorenko over Yakupov anyway. A 6'3 C, who is already 200lb at 18? He might not be as explosive as Yakupov, but I was more impressed with Grigorenko at the WJHC than I was with Yakupov, and he's certainly built to withstand the rigors of the physical nature of the NHL game.

Patrick Roy has taken this kid under his wing and taught him how to be a complete hockey player, who is strong at both ends of the rink........thats a pretty attractive package. I like yakupov too, but I get the Ovie feeling from him of more flash than substance........if you could go back, would you pick Ovie or Malkin? I'd take Malkin

why would columbus trade their first overall pick for a guy they can offer for on free agent day and get for a 1st rounder in another year....assuming they offer him 3.5m over many years.


You are aware that Cory Schneider has to agree to sign an offersheet and he has the right to sign with any of the other 29 teams, right?

Schneider, by all accounts, is a very loyal guy. My guess is that he'd be more likely to re-sign with Columbus if his rights were traded there for something as hefty as the #1 overall pick since he'd feel some debt towards them for the amount of faith the CBJ would've shown in him by giving up something that significant. If he makes it to July 1st as an RFA he still won't screw the Canucks (that have done nothing but good things for him) by signing some backstabbing offersheet that only compensates a 2nd round pick. He'd be free to sign with Tampa (a team much better positioned to contend than CBJ) for $3.2m (1st & a 3rd).

If you were Schneider, would you sign in Tampa or Columbus if it came down to a straight up offersheet?

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.
