One more year at 1.8 (cap hit) then a RFA. Right handed shot. Defenseman.

As @DarrenDreger tweeted earlier, I'm also hearing Jamie McBain is available in Carolina... has one more season on his deal at $1.9 M

Wouldn't be a horrible pick-up, but he's never played a playoff game and has 6 points in 26 games this season including 0 in his last 12.

JR will probably overvalue him, but if he could actually be had for a "hockey deal" and not an inflated deadline deal he'd be a decent pick up.

Depends on what Carolina wants back.... He does have a right shot but isn't very proven yet.

We desperately need a righty now that garrison is settling in nicely on the right side

We need a righty in our 7/8 defensemen spot

McCain might be available but that's doesn't mean they are gonna give him away, they are gonna want a fair bit for him

As apposed to the 4.2M that Ballard makes yes. We will have 4 D making over 4.5M next year so having 2 under 2M will really help our cap crunch.

There's a somewhat interesting pattern in his stats.

GP G A P PIM +/- 2009-10 Carolina Hurricanes NHL 14 3 7 10 0 +6 -- -- -- -- -- 2010-11 Carolina Hurricanes NHL 76 7 23 30 32 -8 -- -- -- -- -- 2011-12 Carolina Hurricanes NHL 76 8 19 27 4 -7 -- -- -- -- -- 2012-13 Carolina Hurricanes NHL 26 1 5 6 12 +9

His highest point seasons with the Hurricanes came with a bad +/- rating, but his lowest point seaons come with a good +/- rating. It appears that offensive risk-taking didn't work out for him, so he's gone back to a more defensive style.

Maybe he could work out here if he's instructed to be Edler's stay-at-home partner like Salo used to be, but without watching any Carolina games (please fill me in on this if possible), I just can't conclusively say it will pan out that way.

I also don't know what to expect other teams to give up to get him. Philly could very well outbid us, given their well-documented need for quality top-4 defense.

I've watched a few Carolina games, and he definetly impressed me with his offensive instincts a few years back. He is definetly an offensive guy and has some size.

Think Tanev with much more offensive skill, but a little less composure with the puck in the d-zone

Surprise and instant interest from NHL teams upon hearing Jamie McBain's name as trade target. #tradecentre

Not sure what Carolina would be looking for. Their offense is shored up for the foreseeable future with Staal's, Skinner, Semin. I assume they still plan on moving forward with Cam Ward in net.

I guess their defense could use some help.. Maybe looking to move a young offensive defenseman for a steady stay at home guy?

ive wanted us to try and get Mcbain for quite some time. It wont be cheap probably, but hes a right handed shot, signed for a year. Would be nice if we can rekindle our trading past with Carolina.

They might trade Mcbain if a team is willing to take J.Jokinen aswell, which im not opposed to either.

Question is, what do they want? Id move a 2nd round pick in this years draft as part of the deal. Any pick but our 1st should be on the table until we see what the return is for luongo.

hamhuis bieksa
edler Mcbain
Garrison Tanev

The above D pairings are alot more well round, problem still is of course Ballard. But we should really just dump him for a prospect or a couple picks to shed salary. Keeping all these high priced D men and 2 pricey Goalies has to come to an end, hopefully soon

you know, they may just be willing to take Ballard off our hands for McBain. They have a plethora of right sided guys and could probably use a good lefty. Ballard could work, theoretically.

McBain's name comes up


One new name popped up Monday as potential trade bait: defenseman Jamie McBain.

I'm told the Carolina Hurricanes would be willing to move him if the offer was right. McBain is not a rental; he has one more year on his deal at $1.9 million in salary and $1.8 million on the cap. He's an intriguing name, to be sure, a guy who can provide some offense from the back end.

Speaking of the Hurricanes, I'm also hearing that, despite clearing waivers last week, forward Jussi Jokinen continues to generate interest from other teams that want Carolina to take a player back in return. So he could definitely move before Wednesday's deadline.

Jokinen is a player the Vancouver Canucks have on their radar, although I would say he's not at the top of their list.



McBain + Jokinen for Ballard + Weise (contract) + 2nd

Its only now Garrison has started to show that one of our LHD can swap sides. We also have Bieksa, who is apparently injured atm and we have not fared well while he's been out, and Tanev but certainly could use a RHD. Especially if he can skate and carry the puck!

Any reports / observation on McBain's puck skills anyone???

Jokinen and McBain could be a good package?

Heck; Raymond, Ballard & we might not have to give up a first...

He might be available but i doubt Vancouver will be interested. Defense.That's one place I think Vancouver is fine with.

According to Hockey's Future, Carolina prospect Ryan Murphy could make the jump to pro next year.. and he's a right handed shot to replace McBain..

Maybe Raymond for McBain straight up?
  • 1

THIS:

 

Lecavalier had a terrible season and was flamed into submission for his poor play.

 

Yet, only 1 player on the Canucks scored more goals than him. That 1 player had 5 more goals (6 more points) but played 8 more games, averaged 6 and a half more minutes of ice a game, and took 107 more shots on net.

 

Kind of speaks volumes to how ugly the Canucks play was this past season.

i think a deal could get hammered out for Jokinen and Mcbain.

Carolina could use Ballard potentially and maybe they would be ok with a pick or as another posted said Weise(or contract dump player)

If Raymond is day to day with an injury i dont see him being moved.

I would do ballard and raymond for jokinen and Mcbain though

We sendroughly 6.5m out and take 4.9m back add a pick if needed like a 4th to compensate for salary difference?

They could probably use a Mason Raymond type player but the fact that he's a pending UFA could make them hesitant.

Tlusty - E. Staal - Semin
Skinner - J. Staal - Raymond

That could be one of the strongest top 6's in the league.
