so which current UFA would be work the best on our third line, or move up to the second for a bit if schroeder cant impress enough in camp? personally i would want gaustad, he may not work on the second line, but he would be perfect on the third line with kassian and hansen, that would be a very tough line to play against, also gaustad can fight on occasion too

Either Gaustad or Arnott for me. But either of these players would probably come at a higher cost than any others on the list.

Who wouldn't want a player with the nickname "Goose" on their team?

He can be my wing man umm i mean center man any day of the week.

I wouldn't rule out Malhotra having a bounce back season either and having a full summer to train.

I could also see a player like Steve Ott being acquired, who could play center or wing for the 3rd line if Manny falters.

Gaustad. Stoll's value is going to be really high this summer so don't see that happening.

I think with the loss of Hodgson we desperately need a big physical guy on the third line who can also score and put up points:

1- Arnott

2- Gaustad

I agree with the consensus, although I can't imagine Nashville will not go hard after him. I also can't see Gillis making this a priority in the short term. Maybe at next Springs trade deadline.

I would love for the Canucks to have lappy on the third line because thats what he is but i think it is important to have depth also that is why i think it is important for the canucks to sign gaustad. Lapierre is a very versatile player and i guarantee u he will move up in the lineup throughout the year because of players not playing well and injurys. Not to mention the fact that lapierre in my opinion is the best fourth line center in the NHL and i expect him to get a contract extension sometime next season.

Boston jsut resigned him for 4 years.

I'd say Stoll or Gausted yeah, but can't go wrong with Jokinen either ;)

Stoll is the best player on that list. Perfect 3rd line center and can slide up into the top-six when necessary. Unfortunately his price is going to be sky-high and I think it's pretty likely he'll be re-signed by the Kings.

Gaustad is a decent choice but I really see him as a 4th line only option. Its unbelievable he was traded for a 1st rounder.

Arnott is probably the best/most likely choice. I doubt he has any real inclination toward Vancouver though.

I don't really want to see Palhsson back. I think our best route to find a 2B/3A center is the trade route.

How about we trade for Vernon Fiddler, our team could use more emotion in their game :bigblush:

I don't know how anyone can choose a name other than Pahlsson.
