Schneider for Brule almost happened back in 2005

29 posts in this topic

So I was watching Hockey Central at Noon on sportsnet, and according to Doug Maclean, when Dave Nonis was GM of the Vancouver Canucks, Dave LOVED Brule because of his play with the Vancouver Giants, and Nonis gave a call to Maclean if he would consider a trade for Brule that involved Schneider.

This was back when Schneider was playing for Boston College and Brule was just drafted. Dave Nonis was GM and Maclean was GM of Columbus. BUT remember Brule was really considered to be a top pick back then! He was called the "Crosby of the west" but obviously thats not the way it turned out.

Good thing this trade didn't happen but it was considered ACCORDING to Doug Maclean.

If I could put a source on here I would but I heard it on TV.

Anyways... Your thoughts?

Nonis also drafted Patrick white and Taylor Ellington.

He traded draft picks for Eric Weinrich and Keith Carney, as well as that goalie who played a single game as a Canuck Naronen was his name I think.

I'm going to enjoy Nonis wrecking Toronto...

Rumour Nobis has called the agents for Taylor Pyatt and Tommy Santala

My goodness....

Imagine if we traded Schroeder and he became another Marty St Louis, not that that will ever happen though, St louis tore up the AHL.

What are you talking about? That is an amazing track record. Its not like his big FA signing were Byron Ritchie and Brad Isbister or anything... oh wait a minute.

Brule would've been good if he was developed better and wasn't addicted to nose candy.

Nonis also signed Marc Chouinard..

The Canucks were against the cap after Nonis took over from Burke, and he had to fill the holes via free agency. People on here were pretty excited to have Ritchie and Isbister. Obviously its easy to say in hindsight that Nonis is a fool, but he made key moves that almost helped bring us a cup.

Brule could've become a different player if developed properly with the Canucks organization. Spending his development with the BlueJackets and Oilers didn't help

things could have turned out differently. Schneider could have become a bust playing for CBJ and Brule develops into a top 6 forward on the canucks
