On TSN radio right now, Bob McKenzie talking about Booth. Suggesting he'll be traded so the Canucks will bring I'm Versteeg - if no one will take him he's apparently candidate for an amnesty buyout.

Update: Forgot one thing - Bobby Mac also said that the Canucks are willing to move any picks in the draft, and only the top prospects are untouchable

If true we all know BMac is legit but even he makes speculations. I think a lot of teams are looking at Versteeg. But if I am not mistaken Versteeg is good friends with some players on Vancouver.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Ballard and Booth would be my 2 main guesses. We have too many left handed D and LW. Our only natural RW are Hansen and the plug Weise. (Although, Burrows has done well at RW).

Anaheim is loaded with RWs ahaha.

Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie :lol:

Yes but what will we have to give up for Versteeg vs what we'd get for Booth. When you look at what we'd give up vs what we get, we may end up on the losing side

I really like the idea of getting Versteeg. However I do not want us to trade away our draft picks. We need to start building up our prospect pool and this draft is the ideal time to do that. This draft is INSANELY deep. So deep that I had to put insanely in caps. That's how deep it is.

I wouldn't want to give up anything north of our third round pick.

I care infinately less about Booth "showing a good jump" than actually putting the fracking puck in the net even once in a while.

Sounds like all Bobby is doing is speculating as is the norm for him when it comes to the Nucks.

The buyout candidates haven't changed since the summer. It's always been Ballard or Booth or both, or whichever of the two they can't gift away.

Garrison at least gets minutes, GPG ain't too bad, +/- is nice, 2nd assists (a la Hamhuis) are wanting but that will come. A year behind him and a full training camp should clear up hiccups in his D zone breakout game.

Not sure about Versteeg. The guy has moved an awful lot for a relatively young player.

Well respected but you guys especially canucks.com really need to stop listening to Bob Mckenzie. The possibility of Booth being traded is nothing new.

florida interested in raymond?

Id like mueller coming back he can play 3rd line center, not ideal but could work well with hansen and higgins

could we get mueller and versteeg? Surprised Tallon would trade him tho, considering their connection from Chicago, I would have thought they would move fleischmann first over versteeg.

I would like Vancouver to get some form of return for a player like Booth as opposed to him being bought out. He had minimal success in Florida but has been very in-effective since being in Vancouver. I am not a fan of his and for what he brings his contract is ludicrous.

From what I am hearing here Versteeg to Vancouver would be a different deal, I would think the price for him would be substantial indeed.

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Raymond - Stastny - Versteeg
Higgins - Kesler - Hansen
Sestito - Lapierre - Weise

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Tanev
Garrison - (?)

Booth and Ballard gone. That's a cup winning line-up if you ask me. Get Stastny and Versteeg please.

Mid-range prospect and pick. Think like, Sauve and a 4th. If that doesn't get it done, you could add in a bottom six player.

Hell, they might even take Booth back straight across if Steeger wants out

^^^ Are you drooling?

Versteeg will cost a good prospect and a 2nd minimum IMO. I'm not sold on it as a move but he has sure grown into some consistency. He's not a bad option.

Saying that, this would need to be one of about 4 moves for the team as it's lateral for our needs.

No way Booth is bought out either. He's still a useful chip for another team if his time here is over.
