I wasn't critiquing you or anything. I'm just saying his value will obviously be through the roof when he's available for trade, so why tear apart the team when we have a similar defenseman in Edler, whom can still improve?
Sorry if I came across that way, I'm just debating CDC's obsession with Weber
I had no issue with any of your posts at anytime, tystick. Your ideas are always sound.
I agree with you on the idea of doing the most we can to keep the team intact. I believe a big part of this is holding on to our younger players who can keep the Canucks in contention for the forseeable future.
My initial post was a bit rash by including so many players, namely Gaunce, Jensen, and Lack. These three, I believe, will be instrumental pieces in a future Canucks line-up.
However, I do believe that Gillis will make a play for Shea Weber, if it is feasible. He went to Kelowna and had a three hour meeting at Weber's home, in which he stated his interest in making him a Canuck.
Gilman has also stated that they would be willing to pay Weber what he wants.
"He's one player you look at and see he's worth it," Gilman said.http://www.theprovin...l#ixzz25llfKmR5
At this point, it's nothing more than speculation.
But if the Canucks could acquire one of the league's best defenseman without totally destroying the team, we would be frighteningly good.
