I think the only way it makes sense for the Canucks to walk away from an offer sheet is if it's worth more than 5 million (1st, 2nd and 3rd round picks in return). Having these extra picks would make a Shea Weber offer sheet that much more possible because the Canucks will have replaced the majority of the picks required for a Weber offer sheet. On top of that, Nashville isn't going to match a one year deal knowing Weber would walk for nothing next year so they'll likely take the 2 firsts, the second and the third round picks. Essentially the trade off then becomes Schneider and a 1st (plus upgraded 2nd and 3rd picks) for Shea Weber. Not a bad deal in my opinion.

Was literally about to ask this I find it pretty obnoxious

He is copy-catting Gollumpus.

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

I have a hard time believing that Schneider would sign an offer sheet knowing that MG is actively shopping Luongo. Would Schneider try to screw us over and sign a deal that wouldn't work for the club? I hope not; I personally would lose respect for him. If its August and Luongo is still not traded then I wouldn't blame him at all but not the first two weeks in July; that just screams selfishness.


He's 26 years old and has been a backup and minor leaguer for a long time. It's his time to get the big contract and become a starter. Why wouldn't he force the Canucks hand if they can't come to terms on a long-term deal?

He is a free-agent after all. He earned that status by playing out his current contract. The Canucks do have the exclusive rights to negotiate with him prior to July 1st. If they can't offer him a contract he wants in that time it's only natural for Schneider to see if anyone else is willing to make him an offer. That's nothing to do with loyalty. If the Canucks are so loyal and want him that badly then he doesn't even get to free-agency. Goes both ways sir!

Getting Weber will require 4 firsts and a HUGE contract offer. Think $8M+ for several years.
After a few days here, I am surprised half of you got the anti-bot question correct to register for this site.

While we don't know what he's been privy to in terms of offers and given the CBA issues teams may be reluctant and less relucatant to bid for Lou (given the contract) once that's dealt with I have come to realize one thing about Gillis.

Simply, he's got too much of an ego to pull off a blockbuster. Not saying he needs too but anything involving Lou effectively is. He is scared to look bad in a 'big' deal and as a result continues to tinker, doddle about.

Reality is the BEST time to trade Lou is indeed at the draft if he's able to move our position higher, and his best leverage to do so is at that time. Its a decent top ten/fifteen draft year, we're not very strong in terms of our talent level in the minors and need some youth / draft picks back. You get a roster guy and a higher pick.

Even if he is going to trade Schnieds (which I doubt). The very best time would be the draft bc Edm would likely cough up first for him, and we know Columbus would give us number 2.

How this man can not make a trade of one of his goalies on draft day is really beyond me....its getting ridiculous.

We do have a window as much as people will or will not recognize it. I have been a fan for my entire 38 years. In that time, I have never seen a canucks team with such a level of talent throughout, and the ability to compete year after year. But, that window is closing, as the Sedins age, we really don't have any elite stars coming up, even someone with flashes yet. Yes perhaps Jensen may turn into something, but hey 35 goals and 70 pts would be great, and if he does that we'd all be happy, but thats 5 yrs out. Kassian same thing. Who's left after that? No one, and certainly no real 100 pt potential guys.

Therefore the time is now you need a roster player and a draft pick, make the deal that gets you over the top (ie Richards and Carter) and at the same time you need draft picks to restock the cupboards lest we turn into the leafs. Those deals happen at the draft, not after.

Time for Gillis to grow a pair.


lol did you see the type of attention the Hodgson trade got?

Nobody is offering that kind of money.

Well his statement was that if someone offer sheet Schneider a crazy amount that presumably would force so many 1st round picks. Any less and we may just match it.
