What about Backstrom??


Who would he bump? Kesler or Henrik?

We don't need a 6.5 million dollar third line center. Plus the caps wouldn't trade him anyways. He's their best player behind Ovechkin.

what?
How is Alzner better than Brouwer?


Really?!? Alzner is their top defence defenceman and is in his early 20's. He's wayyyyyyyy more valuable than Brouwer!

If MG acquires another $4M defenseman, I'm going to go buy a Flames sweater. :)

You won't get Forsberg. Kuznetsov won't come over for at least 2 years if at all.

I'd be happy with one of MoJo, Carlsson or Kalzner.

+ a veteran roster player like Brouwer.


I agree. Gillis is probably trying to re-visit Carlson. Maybe Ward or Brouwer for some more top-nine grit.

I imagine Backstrom would bump Kesler to the wing. Booth-Back-Kes. Legit.

Johan, Holtby and Carlson

Lui, Burrows and Ballard


Don't ever trade burrows. He would do anything for this team! He go through a wall for his teammates not to mention he is better offensively than Brouwer and Johansen and whomever else

Burrows is the life of the Canucks, he does it all, one of the hardest workers out there, trading him would be a HUGE loss.

Carlson doesn't really fit on our team right now, especially with Ballard and Tanev doing so well. We could always trade Ballard, but he is actually adding a lot to our team.
Alternatively we could flip Carlsson for Couturier

If we're going for a top forward, it's gotta be Forsberg or Kuznetsov. Forget about Johansson. He's a good player, but I don't see potential star with him. We need an exciting player that gets fans out of their seats. That's what would make the deal a win for fans.

If we're going for a top defenseman, it's gotta be Carlsson or Alzner. Carlsson would more likely be a straight up deal, since he has alot of value.

So something like:

Forsberg or Kuznetsov and Alzner

or

Carlsson and Brouwer

Each deal would require us to add either a defenseman or a winger IMO.

Realistically their only scouting WSH players. PIT doesn't need a goalie. Bet their looking at Johansson, Alzner, Carlson. Not sure which prospects they have in the lineup?


If you've seen Fleury's play of late it might be otherwise...

His cap hit is actually 4.5 million. Who cares how much he takes home?


What am I reading wrong? I see 6.7 until the end of time.

I'm saying he would bump Henrik on the top line. Not sure if Dank would stay or move to the second as well.

what about Wilson


Would love to add Wilson. The only time you can get players like him is when they're young and unproven. Once powerforwards like him develop fully, they're almost impossible to get.

It depends if Gillis was a piece that will impact the team in the next couple seasons, or he wants a piece for down the road. Kuznetsov is ready now, and Forsberg isn't far off. Wilson is probably at least 3 or 4 years away from making the NHL.

It would be nice to finally have a star sniper or and elite dangler on this team again, but I obviously wouldn't complain if we added another powerforward.
