      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Report] Canucks also interested in Jason Arnott

181 posts in this topic

We wont be trading Tanev anytime soon. And Bjugstad is playing in NCAA again next season, not NHL. I also highly doubt were going to be getting Doan, Arnott, AND Mattias. Florida isn't likely to be giving up both Mattias and Bjugstad.

Sure hope Arnott comes and that the team DID make him an offer, Doan for $30M is NOT worth it if rumors are true...

Hopefully Vancouver can get its play maker in Versteeg from Florida (along with Theodore) for Lu+.

Twins - Booth

Burr - Kes - Versteeg

Higgins - Arnott - Hansen

Manny - Lapierre - Kassian

Weise, Pinizzotto

Kris was rumored to be part of deals for Lu, and he's averaged over 0.5 P.P.G. in the playoffs. His shot and pass are both good, he's pesky but can also play offensive minutes. Hope they come (or possibly Clemmensen and pick can return? Theodore does have a N.T.C. but Scott doesn't, and he was 14-6 in 30 games last season with .913 SV% and ~2.5 G.A.A. which aren't bad.)

I honestly think you can't go wrong adding vets like Arnott or Doan; they both bring great leadership qualities and both have size which is exactly what we're lacking. I know we're trying to get younger, but Arnott could probably be signed on a 1-year deal. Arnott at a cheap price would make sense, no doubt. With Kesler out til December, Arnott can fill in on the 2nd line C role and when Kes returns, he slides down onto the third line.

IF we could add both Arnott & Doan, I really like our chances this year.

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows

Booth - Kesler - Doan

Higgins - Arnott - Hansen

Malhotra - Lapierre - Kassian

// Weise

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Edler - Garrison

Ballard - Tanev

Schneider

Lack/UFA Goalie

It also means we could carry extra centers which is a good thing, in crucial face-offs we could throw an extra out on the ice in case one gets waived out on the draw.

:huh:

Cpl months of heavy minutes while Kesler recovers, and Arnott is in shape > then 8 to 12 minutes a game 5 on 5 plus 2knd PP minutes to monitor his minutes. Perfect to have a 220 lb vet fresh for the play off's???

Sounds abso stinkin lutely perfect!

Sounds perfect

Yikes, not so happy to hear this.

If they're going to have a 3rd line centre who they'll have to shelter, they're better off putting Schroeder there IMO. Arnotts not a tough minutes centre. Last yr he got inflated zone starts (something that will not happen in Van), and got a fair chuck of PP time (not likely to happen in Van). On the positive side, he's a plus possession player and can he move to the wing if necessary.

Hopefully they sign Doan cause I'd rather not see Arnott.

Arnott would be fantastic! We need a 3rd line center, and if he signs, we can trade Luongo for a prospect who's not ready, cause our line up would be near to complete. The only piece missing would be Doan. If we get Bjugstad, he would be ready next year, so he would take Arnott's role. If we don't sing him or Doan, I think MG should go after a ready player in Florida, but it's much more beneficial for us if we sign both Arnott and Doan.

Anyways, for me it's just interesting. I know this guy is mostly not legitimate, but it is still speculation.

Fixed that for you.

Since I've started checking the only things I've seen @HockeyyInsiderr get right are things he's retweeted as his own from other people who are actually connected. I don't see any other sources for this one, and it remains to be seen if there's any truth to it.

If I saw a previous source that was legit like his other claims at authenticity (/topic/333507-signing-stars-re-sign-mark-fistric/page__p__10799760#entry10799760">exhibit A, /topic/333705-signing-hurricanes-sign-alex-semin/page__st__60__p__10809590#entry10809590">exhibit B), I'd believe it then, but until I see anything to substantiate it, I'll believe it's still a Doan or Arnott stuation, and that Doan is plan A.

EDIT: At some point, it may become counter-productive to keep waiting for Doan. I could see us moving ahead with Arnott at that point, but I don't think that time has come yet.

The Canucks have held preliminary talks with free agent center Jason Arnott. It’s likely the Canucks would hold off on an Arnott signing until the Shane Doan sweepstakes are over.

According to Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun.

Sorry buddy your wrong, a lot of people here of CDC are interested in his information. Although I do agree with you on everything else, his information is mostly illegitimate. It is interesting, that's why 26,000 people follow him!

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)

(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)

SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $74,568,333; BONUSES: $0

CAP SPACE (25-man roster):- $4,368,333

so as you can see that brings us almost 4.4 million over the cap, however, a luongo trade is inevidable IMO and apparently his vallue is going down so i say we cap dump him and sign eddie lack as a back up. if done this brings us to 305 thousand under the cap.

now the big question, how do we resign star players burrows and edler the following year?

simple we dont resign Malhotra and Raymond. all 4 contracts expire the same year (along with others i dont see getting raises)

this line up would win the cup as much as i would hate to lose luongo

@NHLexpertpicks

37 year old F Jason Arnott will not be re-signed by the St. Louis Blues. They want to fill his position with a young prospect player.
