Trade for Lucic.

AV: "Play as hard for me as you did against me."

Lucic: "Dude doesn't work that way. Ask Trev."

IMO Iginla is the perfect guy they should try to sign.
He might not have a great regular season, but he'd be a playoff monster.
They need a replacement 3rd line center.Maybe see if they could pry Boyle from the Rangers or Ott from the Sabres.
Go with a kid line as the 4th line, give em experience. see what they can do. More of a scoring threat & cheaper then a traditional 4th line. :) Plus we have some damn big kids to put on it.

You guys really need to learn a bit about zone starts and possession stats. Our 4th liners are playoff gold. Weise, Pinner, Sestito and Ebbett absolutely rocked the Sharks. Our issues are more to do with play style, especially with regard to offense. We likely will see a total revamp of the system. Then it's a matter of who slots into that strategy and who doesn't.

your Defense is too small
need to get bigger, stronger , grittier,
remember ?



My lineup?
load up the top line

Sedin Sedin Kesler



My lines (players in brackets mean that player or similar player)

Sedin Sedin Kesler (2 great passers Sedin and 2 great finishers D.Sedin and Kesler)
Booth (Rebiero) Burrows (2 great passers Burrows and Rebiero and 2 finishers Booth and Burrows)
Higgins (Couturier) Hansen (shut down line)
Weise Lapierre Kassian (Crash and Bang line)

Hamhuis Bieksa
Ballard Garrison
Tanev Corrado

(Ballard gets new opportunity to be puck moving d-man with new coach)


This lineup changes the dynamics of the team by only making 2 moves.
2c and 3c

Our success depends on whether MG can get a great 2c and 3c players

Trade baits to get 2c and 3c

Luongo, Edler, Schroeder, Jensen, Guance

Yes that would empty the cupboard but obviously we aren't going to trade ALL of these players.

It would be ideal if we can trade Edler for Couturier straight up
and Lu just gets a few draft picks and we use that draftpick and 1 of these prospects plus maybe a 1st rounder to get a solid 2c


your TOP 6 F and Defense is too soft

need to get bigger, stronger , grittier,

That top line is never again/ever going to get us past the 1st round. We need to face hard facts.
Weise and Lapierre are useless 4th liners.
Hansen belongs on the 4th line (that should set the bar for this team)
Kassian needs a season under good coaching in the AHL.
Burrows belongs on the 2nd or on the 3rd line with Raymond and a big gritty fast centre.


Yes a lot of people don't think the Sedins can get it done in the playoffs however I believe they can and just need more support, D.Sedin looked like he was having an off year coming back from the concussion, in short he didn't look/play like himself

Starting from 09 Sedins playoff stats

H.Sedin 56GP 54PTS
D.Sedin 53GP 49PTS

They are not the problem

Weise: Has potential to be a great 4th liner/energy guy, he can hit, has great speed and can chip in a few goals same with Lappy that's why I'd keep them going forward.

Hansen: Most hardworking Canuck can chip in offensively great on the PK I think he's at LEAST a 3rd liner on every team.

Kassian: agreed he needs to play a top 6 role in the AHL work on his puck control and defensive play.

Burrows: Ideally on the 3rd line with Hansen along with a new 3C.

I think putting the Sedins on the second line would take a lot of pressure off of them to produce points

???? - Kesler - ????
Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Higgins - ???? - Burrows
???? - Lapierre - Hansen

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Garrison
???? - Tanev

Schneider/Luongo
Lack

Build around Kesler


Just because you put sedins on the second line, doesn't change how other teams play them. It's not like "hey lets tell this other team that sedins are our second line so they focus on them less and the sedins will have more space to play."

For sedins to be on the second, we need a better first line and I don't see us getting 2 first line forwards this offseason

Lain has not played a single game in the ahl yet its not like he is a top 3 pick

Which is why he's put as a 4th line center, which isn't a stretch at all.

You guys really need to learn a bit about zone starts and possession stats. Our 4th liners are playoff gold. Weise, Pinner, Sestito and Ebbett absolutely rocked the Sharks. Our issues are more to do with play style, especially with regard to offense. We likely will see a total revamp of the system. Then it's a matter of who slots into that strategy and who doesn't.

And they accounted for a total of 0 goals. Exactly what we need.

Bring in Chad LaRose, Matt Cooke, Boyd Gordon, and Kyle Chipchura as our bottom six players.
Trade either Luongo or Schneider (preferably Schneider) for a top end prospect.
Bring in a veteran like Andy McDonald to play with Kesler.

lol @ people still thinking Luongo is staying. Did you guys miss the MG interview where he said Luongo is gone? And the media interview where Luongo discusses leaving? The fact people are still in denial about this, whether it's a good decision or not, is appalling.

Unknowns: Who gets moved Lu or Schneider. It is up in the air simply because of the different returns that could come back.

Out: Roy (to expensive and undersized); Raymond (always sympathized with Raymond because his development was butchered by Van IMHO); all 4th liners except for Weise (I include Lappy because his
FO % wasn't there and his spot is needed for a young center option); Corrado (the last thing Van needs to do is throw this kid into the NHL without any AHL exposure. Perhaps they move Tanev instead but a decision one way or the other. Van cannot carry two 180 pound d-men.; Ballard (moved for a pic);
Booth (might get one more crack because of his size. Lack of production, cost and injury makes me lean to a deal that moves him out);

In: Alberts ( a cheap option unless they put more money into a bigger d-man with a higher upside. That might mean a top 4 leaving to afford that); Edler (If AV goes I cannot see any incoming coach wanting to see Edler moved. I would be very curious to see Edler's game under different coaching. Simplify his game and rebuild his game around a more defensive posture.; Garrison (take Edler off the #1 PP and put this guy on the point and get out of him what they traded for, a cannon); The Twins ( I want to see the Twins play at least half a season split between the top 2 lines. NHL scouting has their game dissected. Put their play making ability on two full strength lines and bring them back together on the #1 PP. They will be harder to defense.;

Needs: Defense: MG cannot talk about bigger and younger without doing something on the back end. The most physical d-man was Alberts. If Edler cannot become more physical then he or another top 4 will have to go.
Offense: Above I suggested splitting the Twins on even strength. To be fair to them they have played for over 2 seasons now without a bona fide 2 line to take pressure off them. That said I don't know of a winger that will make sense for their style of puck possession. CUP quality defenses simply keep them to the outside. Split the Twins and increase the action in front of the net.

????? - Hank - Kassian
Danny - Kesler - Burrows
Higgins - ???? - Hanson
????? - Gaunce - Weise

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Garrison
Alberts - Tanev

The big change will be two top 9 forwards and possibly a right d-man.

go to capgeek and remove Lu and Ballard and Booth (3 players that didn't see ice time this year)

Or remove Lu and Edler (potential tradebait)

I doubt Edller is going anywhere and I think lapps will get resigned. Kesler needs a pass first winger with him because he isn't a passing center. As for the coaching situation I have no idea who will take over, but for GM i would like to see Nazy return apparently he is doing well with Modo in Sweden, but i doubt he wants to leave Sweden.

Daniel-Henrick-Kassian
Burrows-Couturier-Kesler
Higgins-Lappy-Hansen
Jensen-Gaunce-Clowe

Hammer-Green
Garrison-Tanev
Corrado-Bieksa

Schneider
Lack

Trade: Edler for Couturier
Trade: Lu, Schroeder, pick for Green
Free Agents: Sign Clowe

We have an awesome first line. Kassian will develop and improve over the summer. Should get some training in with the Sedins.
Second line is very good. Can score, and shut down any opposing line in the NHL.
Third line is good. Tough, gritty, hard working line that can also chip in for some offense.
Fourth line is young with an offensive minded tough guy mentor that can show these kids the ropes, and also protect them when on the ice. Clowe would also act as a good mentor for Kassian.

Our first d pairing is amazing. We finally have our #1 dman(Green) who can move the puck up the ice, penetrate the offensive zone and produce offensively even strength, and on the power play. Garrison - Green on PP :shock: .

The rest of our d is pretty damn good also. Solid top 6..

Schneider is our new #1
Lack should be good to back him up

Thoughts :emot-parrot:

I'm not gonna try and predict the roster, because knowing Gillis, he'll make moves that nobody would have guessed.

I do know he needs to take the moneyball approach now more than ever. Sign guys in the 1-2.5 million dollar range who have had their value drop, because of injury or whatever. But guys that can be better than their salary, and that have come from good teams. These are the guys like Samuelsson, Torres, Malhotra, and Ehrhoff. Undervalued players who were being underutilized on their teams.

And if we have to scour European leagues to find a Damien Brunner type player, then that's what we need to do. And if we can find someone with limited skill, but who can play a role like a Tomas Holmstrom does standing in front of the net, then that would be a plus. Imagine how much room the Sedins would have with someone like Holmstrom wreaking havoc in font of the net.

Trade either Luongo or Schneider (preferably Schneider) for a top end prospect.
Bring in a veteran like Andy McDonald to play with Kesler.

D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Burrows
Higgins - Kesler - McDonald
Cooke - LaRose - Hansen
Weiss - Gordon - Chipchura

Edler - Tanev
Hamhuis - Bieksa
Garrison - Corrado



I love your idea and have said it before myself about getting Gordon and Chipchura.

Two Western Canadian boys, young still, gritty and have size. Chipchura won a gold at the WJC(captain I believe) and Gordon was groomed in junior playing for Brent Sutter in Red Deer. These are the type of guys we need. Gordon can move up and down from 3C to 4C if needed.

I dont sign Lappiere. I think we need to get rid of the yapping and his face-off percentage isn't good enough. Remember late in Game 2, AV didnt even play that 4th line.

Another idea I liked was put forth by someone on this board(DeNiro???) was to split up the twins. I think it is worth a try. Remember the year Daniel was hurt, Hank excelled without him for a large chunk of the year so it can be done. This may be a way to change our make-up a bit with the assets we have. It's worth a try. The key to this idea would be picking up a skilled,big second line center.


Kassian-Hank-Kesler
Daniel-Schenn-Burrows
Jensen-Gaunce-Hansen
Chipchura-Gordon-Weise

Hamuis-Tanev
? (big, stay at home)-Bieksa
Garrison- Corrado


If we are going to make some "true" changes and just not shuffle things around, we need to move some of our vets and core. Guys that people like but have to be looked at honestly and judged on their playoff performances:

Higgins: Hasn't performed in the past 2+ playoffs. Move him now while we can and his NTC kicks in.
Lapierre: already covered
Edler/Bieksa: One of our "core" D needs to go if we are going to make real changes. You also have to move something to get something. If moving one of those 2 to Philly gets us Schenn, I'd do it. I think Garrison can do the job that Edler does so you can move him and get a young, skilled, second line center that can play now and would be around for the next 10 years.

It really does make alot of sense to split up the twins. Right now other teams are too confident against us because the twins have been figured out 5 on 5 in the playoffs.

Splitting them up 5 on 5 and then putting them together on the powerplay changes the dynamic of the team. Suddenly we're not a team that relies too much on one line to score 5 on 5 because the talent is spread out.

And they'd still rack up lots of points playing together on the powerplay. As long as we get a bonafide PP QB.

http://capgeek.com/canucks

Fire Unsucessful GM for last 2 years . Coach AV is fine . But get rid of Cory Schneider 4 M + David Booth 4.25M + keith Ballard 4.25 M + zach Kassian .875M + Andrew Ebbet .600 M + Andrew Alberts 1.225 M = 15.15 M .

So canucks salary cap gonna cut down at 55 M for today's market . Next year Alex Elder gain more 1.8 M in his new contract + Chris Higgins also gain .600 M = 2.4 M

55 M + 2.4 M = 57.4 M for rest of Canucks roster .

Canucks still have 6.7 M in cap space . We could be get star wing ( offensive player ) .

Offensive :

Higgins Kesler burrows

Daniel Henrik Hansen ( Jensen )

May Ray Roy Schroeder ( Gaunce )

Lapierre kellan Lain pinnizzoto
-------------------------------------------------------
Blue line :

Beiksa Hamuis

Elder Garrison

Tanev cam barker ( Frank Corrado , Patrick Mullen , Yaun Sauve )

Luongo

Joe cantata or Eddie

This could be a great team ever !!!

Sedin Sedin Kassian
B.Little Kesler Burrows
Higgins Schroeder S.Laughton
Wiese Lappiere T.McGinn

Hamius Garrison
Tanev Bieksa
Alberts Corrado

Schneider
Lack


Alex Elder + 3rd round for Bryan Little + 2014 1st round + 2nd round

Luongo + Jannik Hansen to Philadelphia for Tye Mcginn + Scott Laughton


Summary
Traded= Elder, Luongo, Hansen, 3rd round
Leaves=Roy and Raymond

Get= 1 first round picks, 1 second round pick, Tye McGinn, Bryan Little and Scott Laughton


No way Philly takes on another goalie with a horrible contract.
If any goalie goes to Philly it would be Schnieder, but that wont happen...
Hopefully the Nucks get a decent return for LU, but I can't see more than a second round pick/ good prospect and a bottom 6 Centre.

If the nucks are going to re-build Edler might be the best candidate because he has the most trade value out of the defense core.

If Gillis can clear out Lu, Ballard and Elder (or cap space in general) for premium prospects/ high draft pics and good role players. It would be a bad business decision not to.

Lain has not played a single game in the ahl yet its not like he is a top 3 pick


Yes he has? and he would be a good fit for the 4th line.

It really does make alot of sense to split up the twins. Right now other teams are too confident against us because the twins have been figured out 5 on 5 in the playoffs.

Splitting them up 5 on 5 and then putting them together on the powerplay changes the dynamic of the team. Suddenly we're not a team that relies too much on one line to score 5 on 5 because the talent is spread out.

And they'd still rack up lots of points playing together on the powerplay. As long as we get a bonafide PP QB.

I suggested splitting the Twins on even strength to spread their puck moving skills to two lines. Also because it has never been done other than Danny's injury a few years ago. Danny is a + 30 goal scorer with his shot and his hesitation to take the shot in favor of puck movement hurts IMHO. Trying a split again depends on who fills the 2C position. If it Kesler then the 2RW becomes a play maker.

You were talking about a QB on the back end. All of the top 4 are decent puck movers. I suggest that Van still doesn't know what they have in Garrison yet. IMO he should have got sustained ice on the
1st PP with Hamhuis on the left side. Re-build Edler's game around a defense first. He is as strong as an ox and mean when physical. He is Van's physical d-man if he has the mindset for it. Van management should know whether he does or not by now. If he doesn't I would move him for an attractive package.

I had posted this to another thread a few months back and this is what I'd like to see. There seems to be 800 threads on this same topic but I'll post here as well.

Given that it seems like Corrado is ready (albeit only a couple of games but he can manage a bottom pairing as he's better than most of our bottom right now)...some minor tweaks to my original proposal

As we have seen and I said earlier, we are still lacking the hands/size combination, aggressiveness/hitting, and hunger we need to win a cup. As such here are my thoughts (albeit challenging to do all of them) that could really turn us into a TOUGH team to play against, and one that's built for the playoff grind, and that can play any style.

Right now our 2014 cap is 60 million, it is expected to be 64 million so here are my views.

First things first

1. Lou, Bieksa, Schroeder, and our first to Philly for Coutourier and #11 overall. Philly gets their goalie, a decent dman, a potential center and still keep a first rounder.

2. Then take that number 11 pick plus Jensen and move it to FLA for #2 overall. FLA has depth at center, they dont NEED McKinnon, they could use a winger with hands and Jensen is more ready than any pick will be. Morover they still have a 11th overall...a great deal for them.

3. Draft McKinnon

4. Sign David Clarkson for 4.25 ml and Raffi Torres for 3.0 (yes slight overpayment but given his playoff performance there will be a battle for him, SJ will likely have the upper hand here as he seems to have found a nice spot).

4. Trade Ballard, Higgins, and Tostito to the Islanders for Matt Martin and a 2nd round pick. Islanders will be in desparate need of a top 4 dman given the UFA and aging status of most of their D. An experienced Dman will do wonders for that team going forward as they are showing they are ready to take the next step. Higgins is from NY and brings a veteran presence to a team that will need one. Tostito helps them replace Martin (at least a bit). Martin gives us what we're missing on the 4th line, the best hitter in the NHL.

5. Sign Boyd Gordon or Steckel for the fourth line and let Roy go as well as MayRay

6. Resign Lappy for 2.0 ml

7. Booth traded for a pick

This team will have size on every line. Someone who can score and hit with the Sedins (and take some pressure off Kassian and let him develop properly).Clarkson has size, uses it, can fight and will drop em, protect the Sedins and can score, has very good hands, good cycler and around the net/tough areas.

In addition, we solved our issues down the middle for the next 12 years. With Coutourier and McKinnon we have a real number 1 and real number 2, at the most important position, next to goalie, in hockey. We also have Gaunce ready to be a superstar number 3 with 2nd line capability - what we've been lacking for so many seasons, real strengths long term at 1c 2c and 3c.

Burrows moves back with Kesler Mckinnon plays the other wing until he’s ready to play center. Offensive instincts suggest he can jump in. He can play the playmaker on this line until he's ready to take over at center. He's more offensively gifted then Coutourier so Couts goes to #3 as till the Sedins move on and also more experienced so a better bet to be in a 'responsible' position right now.

The team below wins the Stanley Cup next year.

Line up.

Daniel Henrik Clarkson
6.1 / 6.1/ 4.25 = 16

Burrows Kesler Mckinnon
4.5 / 5/ .875 = 10.4

Kassian Coutourier Torres
.875 / 1.35 / 3.0 = 5.25

Martin / Lappy / Hansen
1 / 2.0 / 1.35= 4.35

Forwards = 36.

Hamhuis Garrison
4.5 / 4.6 = 9.1

Edler Tanev
5 / 2 = 7

Find a number 5/6 (Fistric) + / Corrado
3 /1 = 4

Defense = 20.1


Schnieds

4

Lack

.875

Total = 61.1 Mil
Add in Steckel as your depth Center for 2 ml
You’re at 63 ml.
