[Rumour] Canucks have attempted to acquire Brandon Dubinsky

181 posts in this topic

If we were to acquire Brandon Dubinsky, they would not want salary back. They are in for Rick Nash real hard and are most probably looking to clear cap space, and Dubinsky could be the odd man out.

What NY could be looking for would be a 1st Round Pick, 2nd/3rd round pick, and a prospect most probably. Only things we could give them would be Raymond, 1st, 2nd, Gragnani, Sweatt, Oreskovich, or Parent. Teams like Toronto could easily beat a offer we would give them.

I'd be happy if he were a 3rd line C on this team when Kesler is back:

We have so many options then, and our depth is off the hook! I think that if this happened though, send Booth the other way. Then look for a top 6 forward. Pipe dream would be Parise:

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows

Parise-Kesler-Jensen

Higgins-Dubinsky-Hansen

Weise-Lapierre-Kassian

Trade Booth, Malhotra for Duby and a 4th

Leafs would rather use those assets that would beat our offer to trade for Nash themselves. Burke certainly isn't going to make it easier for his competition in the Nash sweepstakes.

I only mentioned that if TO dropped out of the Nash sweepstakes.

I wouldn't trade Booth for Dubinsky and the Rangers wouldn't trade Dubinsky for Raymond.

I don't think anyone is really suggesting that Raymond alone would land Dubinsky.

Then they'll use those assets to make a deal for Luongo. Dubinsky isn't going to lead Toronto into the playoffs and Burke doesn't have time.

Rangers aren't going to get that kind of return for him from the Leafs. It's going to be a similar type deal to the Booth one IMO only with less salary going the other way due to being in the off-season.

IF true...then I am seriously starting to worry about GM MG...

I would take him in a heartbeat.

This would be a 'buy-low' circumstance.

Well, that's assuming the Rangers aren't 'agressively' shopping him by asking for a lot back. If they are asking for less than his value of 2-3 years ago, it could be worthwhile, but we'd have to give them back some salary.

Would a Booth/Dubinsky swap be worthwhile to both teams, or even good value? I'm not sure I'd do that, but we could use a center in Kesler's absence that could shift to wing when he returns.

Everyone needs to realize that NY is going after Rick Nash and are not looking for salary back. Also the Canucks have up to 15 million in cap space.

207 hits last season. and +16. Career 52% on faceoffs. Versitile C/LW, capable of 20 goals, 40-50 points. Salary is a bit high, but depending on what we'd give up, could be a very nice 2nd/3rd liner. Diddnt do much of anything in the postseason... But he's not a liability.

Basically a thicker and much more aggressive version of Raymond... given that NYR would need the cap room for Nash, and Raymond is a winger that could fill the void at a lower cost, I could see the 2 involved in the deal with a few minor peices or draft picks.
