      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Rumor] - Loui Eriksson available?

Recommended Posts

I agree that our defence would take a huge hit with Edler out of the lineup, and that would have ramifications with our offensive production as well (puck movement and shots from the back end). That being said, I think our defence would suffice with another addition from a goalie trade and with Tanev stepping into a bigger role. Tanev makes smart decisions with the puck and, for someone so young, is very good defensively. He just lacks Edler's size, physicality, and shot. Although if Tanev were to be paired with Garrison then they would each cover/mitigate each other's individual weaknesses and make a pretty good two-way pairing.

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Garrison - Tanev

Ballard - _____

A similar situation to consider is with LA last season. They traded Jack Johnson for Jeff Carter and had Vyacheslav Voynov step up into a bigger role. I really think Tanev can flourish with more minutes, and the trade would pay huge dividends to our offense.

Would be a huge mistake for Dallas to let him go. But then again, I wouldn't be surprised if they did.

But if he is available, MG should definitely push hard to get him. We could always trade a G for picks towards getting Eriksson. Won't happen though.

Meh; why another LW guys?

Great player, really great, but a poor use of assets to load up in the place we probably need help the least... :sadno:

I would love Eriksson, defensive forward. Kesler and Eriksson could be a dynamic duo

Booth Rodin Raymond? Raymond, Connauton, 1st? LOL

How about Edler, Jensen and a 1st to start and maybe Dallas get's interested. Loui Ericksson with the Sedins = 40 goals minimum. He's been a near PPG player in Dallas, in Vancouver with the Sedins and on the PP he easily has 100pt potential.

I'd still be comfortable going into next season with a Juice-Hammer-Garr-Tanev top 4. Perhaps get a veteran D and 3rd line C in a goalie trade:

Luongo + 2nd for Goc, Kuba and Bjugstad. If it's feasible perhaps the Canucks keep some of Luongo's salary cap hit.

Wouldn't make any sense unless they actually are trading every single thing they have. At that point it still wouldn't make sense.

Weird, you think he'd be one of the few players on that team who is actually untouchable.
