What Free Agents are left? And which of those, if any, would you want to join the Canucks organization (being realistic of course) to further help our team towards winning the Stanley Cup?

Please discuss!!!! :canucks:

I'd take a shot at Jagr to be honest, he still put up some good points last year and the guy is a beast when controlling the puck so strong, good for 1st and 2nd line minutes. Deadly on the powerplay!

Doan's agent confirmed that there are a number of contending teams interested in him. If Phoenix ownership is resolved, he'll likely re-sign there.

Doan would be awesome, Semin probably wouldn't. It would be great if the Canucks could land Weber with their newfound cap space, but I highly doubt it would be possible. Even if we did something similar to the Kessel trade and traded a pair of 1st rounders for Weber, it could still be worth it. We'd get bigger, younger and stronger. Not to mention an amazing D:

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Edler-Weber
Garrison-Tanev

Traded: Ballard, 1st + 1st received in Luongo trade.

Dylan Reese for depth defense (righty). Asap.
Jacob Dowell
Would also like to see Bitz back, he was solid in Van.

Hopefully Gillis fills 3rd line C and top 6 F in Lu trade.

We probably won't be getting a 2nd overall and 9th overall pick and if we were I'd rather take a shot at drafting Nathan Mackinnon or Seth Jones.

I think both (Doan and Semin) of those players have priced themselves out for the Canucks...

MG loves reclamation projects - so maybe he'll convince Mueller, but injury is a big concern. Guy cannot stay health.

Idea 1: Sign one of Mueller or Doan. Keaton Ellerby, Shawn Matthias, 4th round pick from Flo for Lu.
Idea 2: Sign Olli Jokinen. Versteeg, Keaton Ellerby 6th round pick from Flo for Lu
Idea 3: Sign Depth D. Versteeg, Matthias from Flo for Lu.

I'd go with idea 2.

I think those who are wishing on weber they are a little delusional. Nashville won't want Ballard. It was on twitter earlier that it's likely two top 6 FWD a dman and picks....

Van doesn't have the assets to make a fair trade for weber. Weber is 1 yr away from UFA and that's are only real shot

As would I. Unlikely but you might as well. Someone with his history and skill level wouldn't just disappear over the off season. What we saw from him last season is pretty much what I'd expect this season.

One interesting name is Ryan Stoa, a colorado 2nd rnd draft pick. He played with Jordan Schroeder back at the University of Minnesota. Apparantley, he had good chemistry with Schroeder and the two put up great numbers. When he left, Schroeder's game went immediately down hill.

He's 25, has decent size, and good two-way ability. I would mind throwing him a two-way contract while there's still 2 gaping holes in our 2nd and thirdline. Doesn't seem like theres very much centres left.

I would like a depth defenceman to replace Tanev, someone with experience and who is big and physically strong.

Pavel Kubina for 3.5 million, leaving us 2.5 million to sign a cheap rental center until Kesler gets better

On the flipside we could dish out 3.5 million to a guy like Mueller and sign a cheap depth defenceman like Vandemeer or Colaiacovo at 2 million. Either way, we still have 2 needs to be filled - depth defencemen and depth at center.
