[OLD TRADE] Cory Schneider for Gilbert Brule

38 posts in this topic

Doug MacLean on Hockeycentral today said he got a call from Dave Nonis back when Nonis took over the GM role with the Canucks and Dave offered Schneider straight up for Brule.

How different would our organization look of that had happened eh?

Hence why the Leafs are no better off with him as GM.

Hindsight guys, Brule was supposed to be huge and may very well have been a star if he hadn't been developed by Columbus. At the time that it would have happened you all would have been peeing yourselves with excitement.

It should also be noted, Schneider would not have had all this time for development in Manitoba and back-up.

Brule probably would of developed better in Vancouver versus Columbus, the same could not be said for Schneider

Dave Nonis lowballed Doug McLean. The Canucks would have run away with this trade.

I didn't see the show, did MacLean say at all why he passed up on the deal?

I don't think we need MacLean to tell us why? :huh:

It was a clear lowball from Nonis. Brule was one of the top-rated prospects at the time and Schneider was a guy who played high school hockey in his draft year.

Is that sweet offer still on the table? We could make that trade and maybe convice Fabian Brunnstrom to sign with us = Cup!
