For his price, I wouldn't mind him as a project. With his size, he could centre the 4th line if Lapierre was to go onto the 3rd. If said team was willing to part with him as an extra piece of a trade. Kind of like Raymond is a project player for another team in need of speed, he is in a similar situation so he might be in a multiplayer deal, where we send Raymond and they send him. They probably value him higher than Raymond, but that's why it's a multi player deal.

He was drafted by Detroit, and involved in the Bertuzzi trade. But I would prefer him over Arnott.

I'd rather just go for Bjugstad and a 1st in this year's draft which will be a very good one. 2 LEGIT A-grade prospects for Luongo seems like a fair trade :) Even if we have to sweeten the deal with Schroeder, or a 2nd rd pick etc I'd be fine with it.

Even with Luongo, does go to Florida, I can't see them making the playoffs. There team hasn't improved much with Mueller, plus we snagged Garrison from them (Campbell's D-Partner) and Jovo is another year older too.

Their only hope is Huberdeau being NHL ready this year, which is a coin-flip. That 1st rd pick and Bjugstad could be the start of a new era of the Canucks. A bigger, and younger era to take the reigns from the Sedins,Kes and Burrows in about 4-5 years.

I think everyone and their dogs would rather go for Bjugstad but thats not really an option is it according to Tallon....

Thats like us offering Raymond and someone goes they'd rather go for Jensen

Florida laughs and hangs up..

And I'm a big fan of SM. He'd be an excellent third line center if he can improve his offensive game like he did in juniors.

Your analysis is entirely subjective and opinionative (yours). You can't ignore stats but you can ignore the traditional ones like goals assists etc and use non-traditional stats.

Read the book Moneyball, I think you'll enjoy it.

Cheers

I'm one of the few here who actually isn't a fan of SM...lol.

He's a pretty meh player IMO, doesn't excel at anything in particular...although well-rounded w/ size.

"In his second OHL campaign, he finished tied for fifth with 34 points in 67 games"

WTF does that mean? Certainly not 5th in the league. Fifth on his team? In any case, is half a point per game in junior supposed to be an impressive fact to add to his resume?

That's the kind of physical presence we need on our third or fourth line,especially in the playoffs. The only heavy bodycheckers we've had there have been Rome and Alberts when they've been switched up. We need that type of pressure on opposing D in a long playoff series..and he's ready now.

He's actually 29 now...But yeah I think he's great. Been talked about before.

Hint: he was drafted by washington but does not play for them anymore.

He's 24..

Seriously, I look at what everyone is saying here and I don't understand... We do not need a center. We do not need a forward... if anything we could use a guy like Doan of a banger that can skate and score a bit.

What we really need a defenseman. We need a stud. A shut down with speed and toughness. Eddler's value is high. In the beg games and through out the year he drives me crazy by making mistakes at the worst possible time. However his body of work is good and we could really trade him for something now.

I say forget all this talk. Trade Luongo for Shawn Mathias and Keaton Ellerby and a draft exchange and have it done with. Then Trade Eddler, Ballard, Schroeder to Winnipeg for Byfugglin and Cormier.

Then we have a tough and fast team with some size on the back end. It is not rocket science. Get er done MG.

When I started reading this thread, I immediately thought David Legwand and was very confused as he is massively overpaid (4.5 mil).

But, lots of the stats/info the OP put up mirror Legwand's career:

Big 6'2, 204 lbs.

Centre

Shoots Left

Drafted by a team that has been successful with its draft picks (Nashville)

Legwand played in the OHL (however I didn't know he only played for 2 years) and was an impact player.

He has never been a goal scorer (though is certainly much more accomplished than SM) and has been considered a bit of a bust (drafted 2nd overall)

Only thing that changed my mind is that the OP said he was under 27 and similar to Bert.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Down by the River - Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
