Perfect place to play for him... Can get to spend all his free time with all his BUDdies... Lol

Yup if Salming was in the league now a days he'd most likely be screaming for a trade to Vancouver.Red eyed

Wasn't given a fair shake in Edmonton? He scored 17 goals one season playing on the top line with Penner(in his career year) and Gagner.

Yup, but then was bumped around as soon as he stopped producing 9if I remember correctly)

That's usually how it works. Especially with the 1st line.

Offer him 1 year 1 million. Solid 3rd liner and can play top 6 if necessary

I was hoping Brule dropped to us in 2005 so bad he was one of my favorite prospects. would love it if he signed here, and hopefully he does.

Johnny Gaudreau>any Casucks

Edler, Markstrom, Hansen, 2nd round pick 2014 to Islanders for Ryan Strome, 5th overall pick 2014

This is fairly even as well.

Sign Brule, trade for Franson. Inject some Vancouver cup winning players. Bliznak probably would be a decent 3rd line center for us right now as well.

MG should try him out, if he is able to play wing too would be great. So that he can play on the wing instead of raymond.

For the right price he could work out. Definitely wouldn't get my hopes up though, he hasn't lived up to expectations anywhere he's gone.

Could have something to do with the fact hes a.cocaine cowboy.

He'd be great for the wolves.

Other than that he's a fringe NHLer on any contending team at best. There's several players we have on the wolves that I would take over him. Say what you want about Columbus but Brule was just never capable of making the jump from Jr hockey to the NHL and he's responsible for that. He could be a great AHLer though if he doesn't want to play over seas.

I'd rather get Tommy Santala back. We'd still be wasting a spot on the roster but the jokes were kind of funny.
