Not sure what to feel about Connauton - thought he's supposed to be a powerplay specialist

... 2nd round pick should have been a 3rd or 4th. :( Bye Kevin.


Based on what?

Robyn Friggin Regher got TWO second round picks.

I'd say this is at the very least fair value

This.

He was getting passed by other d-men in our prospect pool in terms of development. He could obviously still pan out but this is a low risk move

If he decides to re-sign here for a fair salary, it will be an amazing trade!

Agreed.
KConn is having a poor year and wasn't going to crack the roster.
Good trade. Hopefully he will resign.

Terrible trade! An undersized UFA, at the end of his contract, for our best D prospect and a 2nd in a deep draft? Total fail. We're not exactly deep on prospects, and we just gave up two more for a 2 month rental

Whatever, we got a centre. We're going to get to watch the playoffs this year.

We draft a guy in the second round and half this board explodes in anger we drafted the wrong guy anyways.

I'm not a Roy guy either but we got one of the best centreman on the trading block so I'm happy. Thanx gillis, make one more move, a signed clowe please.

I'd have to agree here.

I'm guessing Connauton was the guy to give up since his defensive game was a long-standing issue.

Not speaking for anyone else but Roy is just "meh" IMO. Another small'ish 2nd 3rd line tweener. He's a band aid.

I was hoping for something more substantial and long term. Either a true top 6 playmaker or a bigger/meaner Ott-esque 3rd C.

He fill a much needed to be filled hole but ..."meh"

So, Buffalo moved Roy to Dallas so Hodgson could be their top center.
Vancouver moved Hodgson because he wanted to be a top center.
Vancouver gets Roy to fill our 3rd line center role since Hodgson was traded.

Yeah..

Signed Clowe and Boyle is what we need now. I don't care if it depletes some of our prospects, the Nucks need to make a run NOW.

This is extremely fair value this year. Roy should have at least got a first.

He was a first liner on Buffalo. He's not a 2nd 3rd line tweener by any means.

Excellent deal. Kevin's nothing special...just another overrated prospect. Basically a Gragnani in the making.

Sedin - Sedin - Jensen
Burrows - Roy - Kesler

WITH A SECOND.

FOR A RENTAL?

The softest C this side of ribeiro. For a team looking for "toughness". Hodgson was much better defensively than Roy.

Roy better re-sign, and for cheap because he doesn't deserve a penny more than he makes now.

A first liner on Buffalo IS a 2-3 tweener on a good team. Where are they int the standings exactly?

Going to say this. The Roy deal smells like one which the Canucks could utilize to put Kes at RW. Roy is small as crap but he is one hell of a set up man and for the sake of preserving longevity for Kes it makes sense to move him to RW as he would be less likely to be injured

Ugh, too much for a rental. The Canucks' D prospects were already thin, and Connauton was the most NHL ready of them.
