Technically you are correct. But when I said we're virtually cap-broke, I looked at the overall picture, that includes next year. We have committed all but $3.9M on 14 players (out of 25), which is crazy.

We may only have money to acquire rentals this year thanks to LTIR, not to MG's foresight (assuming that we cannot dump big contracts), which reduces our chances to get real talent. The issue is that if an awesome rental is available, good luck beating St Louis to it (just ONE example), with their $20M+ available this year.

Trust me, I honestly want to be wrong and have to praise MG in a couple of weeks!


In the off season we have lots of moves we can make and two amnesty buyouts. If we do any big moves before the trade deadline it will most likely be for rental players anyways.

We have 4 million in space next year, but if you look at our roster there is lots of wiggle room. If we aqcuire any sort of center we could easily look at dumping Weise. Alberts gone should be a no brainer. Ebbett has had some nice goals, but he can easily be dropped for a better player.

Ballard is in the dog house and if we cant trade him he will be bought out. His salary alone with current room means that we could resign all of our UFA's and still be under cap. You throw in a Luongo trade and get rid of Booth and now we got 10 million in space for whatever we bring back in a trade. Hell we could afford Ovey or Crosby (not that we would ever get them).

Talbot for a 2nd rounder? Philly should really consider getting younger. Mould their team around Couturier and Giroux, they're not making the playoffs this season anyway. Then here's our opening night Game 1 playoff roster:

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Higgins - Kesler - Booth
Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen
Lapierre - Talbot - Kassian

Say we lose Kesler and Booth to injury during the playoffs (why not...)

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen
Higgins - Talbot - Kassian
Weise - Lapierre - Sestito

One extra center makes a world of difference.

Bozak. Canucks need a killer FO man in order to start playing the style that made them difficult to play against

I couldnt give 2 craps about wingers except Morrow. I could see him having an immediate impact in the top 6.

And thats not a put-down on yr research, OP. But the team really needs 1-2 centermen that kill on FOs.

After reading about all these great names that people are dreaming of - are we allowed to pay with pot?

We're virtually cap-broke, with a bit of relief coming from Booth. Real talent will be expensive.


This, we got 65 Million locked up in 14 players next year. We can't do anything and need to dump salary. Wouldn't want to be Gillis this summer.

If I were the club's owner, I would fire MG for having to buyout two players.

...You throw in a Luongo trade and get rid of Booth and now we got 10 million in space for whatever we bring back in a trade. Hell we could afford Ovey or Crosby (not that we would ever get them).


Wishful thinking. The closer we get to next year, especially with a reduced cap, the less likely our chances to "throw in" trades and "get rid" of injury-prone expensive players. WHO will be so foolish to waste so much cap - would YOU, if you were a GM? Unless you find a buyer, there is no selling, just hoping.

Henceforth the amnesty buy outs.............. Seriously Aquillini should fire MG if we start next season with Booth or Ballard in the lineup.

If you think we, or anyone will be even close to getting Stamkos.....then I feel terribly sorry for you...

This poll is supposed to be realistic....

I bet you're one of those guys who thinks we can get Stamkos for Ballard Raymond and a 1st

St.louis is there and he has a nmc so that is impossible.... st.louis is going to retire in the south... whynot great chemistry with stamkos and the nice weather.

“Since the beginning of recorded history, which is defined by the invention of writing by the Sumerians around 6,000 years ago, historians have cataloged over 3700 supernatural beings, of which 2870 can be considered deities.

So next time someone tells me they believe in God, I’ll say “Oh which one? Zeus? Hades? Jupiter? Mars? Odin? Thor? Krishna? Vishnu? Ra?…” If they say “Just God. I only believe in the one God,”

I’ll point out that they are nearly as atheistic as me.I don’t believe in 2,870 gods, and they don’t believe in 2,869.”

I didn't vote (good list though, OP). We are not in the market for rental players. I'd be on board for a fair trade involving some of the younger players in the poll but realistically we are more than one player away from a cup run. Like almost every other team in the league, we need to get younger, cheaper, better and deeper by next season. That's a tall order and it's not achieved by getting one or two rentals for the post-season. This year's draft day is the new trade deadline.

Hey I dont want to get all know it all and stuff, but rental players is exactly what we are looking for. We want to dump contracts like Booth and Ballard on short term UFAs to help with cap space and reduce the needs for buy outs.

St. Louis, former league mvp and a leading scorer, would be a nice addition. So would be Crosby.

For a trade involving Luongo, I would expect in return Sidney Crosby or Shea Weber, an impact player that can make all the difference.


I won't be expecting that.

Good thing about Talbot is that his contract is fairly manageable. He's also a fairly decent depth playoff performer and cup winner. But he's not a rental.

Failing Ott, how about Boyd Gordon from Phx. By the time the trade deadline comes around his salary has basically nothing left on it, he could be aquired for a low pick, he's a UFA at the end of the season AND he has a 59% FO percentage.

Come the play-offs we NEED a face off go to guy. AV system demands a possesion type game and it all starts at the face off dot

Plus of course it would be nice to bring in some one like a Robeiro if for nothing more than his PP.

really canuck fans? st.louis?

...

im stunned really, of all the names on that list you guys want the smallest, oldest winger? do any of you watch the team? better yet, do any of you watch any team besides the canucks?... the LAST thing we need is a 5'8 winger on the brink of retirement. i would literally take any player on that list over st.louis...

i know you can't really have a 'wrong' opinion, but in this case - everyone who voted st.louis is wrong. and a horrible person.

If we can dump Booth and/or Ballard for a UFA that makes sense, sure thing. I guess I see these moves as costing us prospects and picks, something that we can't afford to give up IMO.

We need a 3rd line checking center or Kes will have to fill that role. He is perfectly capable of doing it, but that would limit his offense somewhat. Gillis has been trying but no luck yet. Have faith.

I have a strong belief that this will be the snoozer of all snoozing trade deadlines

Tight standings, deep draft, cap declining = James Duthie shuffling papers.

Edit

anyone that thinks a deadline "seller" wants Ballard or Booth can you please explain why? Cause I really don't see it.
It's the exact opposite thing a "seller" is trying to accomplish.

Using only one of our single buyouts on Ballard would enable a raise to our UFAs that need to resign for next year. That is literally all it takes to be cap compliant. Get a couple rental players who we don't need to resign after the playoffs and we're sitting pretty.

While I still have my doubts that the Canucks are going to make any significant trades at the deadline, I still have high hopes. Though the potential for a block-buster is certainly there.

Please share in your comments on who you voted for.


*sorry for omitting Jagr, but I can't seem to add another option to either list for some reason in edit.


P.S - my personal votes were for Martin St Louis as most wanted and Tyler Bozak most likely.


Can't fault you for giving choice. It's like a menu with too many choices.
