Alright, stick with me on this one, it might be a little bit of a stretch but I think I know how to fix our third line scoring issues.

To Winnipeg: Chris Higgins, 4th Round Pick, Yannick Weber
To Vancouver: Bryan Little, Jordan Samuels-Thomas, Juho Olkinoura

To Florida: David Booth, Tom Sestito
To Vancouver: Brad Boyes, 5th Round Pick, Zach Hyman

Sign Daniel Bang for 1 year at 800k, he's 6'3" 208 pounds and putting up great numbers in the NLA currently. I would say he most likely has an NHL out clause in his contract. He just never got a chance in the NHL, but he's really putting his game together this season.

Sedin - Sedin - Kesler
Burrows - Santorelli - Kassian
Bang - Little - Boyes
Weise - Richardson - Hansen

I think this fixed third line would really fit torts system and help our team with any scoring issues. The fourth line becomes way more defense oriented with a scoring 3rd.

Good proposal best one of I've seen in a while. I think it addresses our needs well. I think we may have to add Bill Sweatt's rights or something to the Winnipeg deal but other than that good proposal.

Proposal failed you didn't include Clitsome cuming back from the peg. And Hyman would really break out here.

He's just never gotten his shot in the NHL, I think with the right linemates he could really help our team.

I really like the look of that third line. Gives us good scoring depth throughout the lineup.

Good proposal.

Maybe we can add something to the package then like Joe Cannata and a 2nd.

Thats why I think a guy like Sweatt could help. OP can you add him to the proposal to make everyone happy?

Agreed. Remove Jordan Samuels-Thomas and it's a little more fair.

I feel like Jordan Samuels-Thomas would really compliment Darren Archibald in our system though, in terms of large players.

Undervaluing Little by a longshot. Add a first and then they'll start to consider it.

I think you are undervaluing Chris Higgins, he is exactly what Winnipeg needs currently.

I'm skeptical about giving up a first. Perhaps the rights to Kirill Koltsov + 7th?

We could acquire Brooks Laich and put him in Bang's spot if he starts slumping.

Yeah, but in general I feel Bang could develop into a powerforward.

I don't think the jets are willing to part with their current top goal scorer right now.

It's hard to say what route the Jets may take closing in on Trade deadline, it was a good sign to see they beat Detroit tonight but the season does not look good.

But as of now and the past few seasons Little has been their #1 centre as much as I believe he's at best a #2 centre on better teams. So it might be interesting at the deadline.

I think VAN should look at Nashville, they signed Hendricks and Cullen on top of Paul Guastad, we could get one of them quietly

I like both deals but I dont think that the Jets would give up Little for so...... :bigblush: little
Think the pick would likely have to be a 2nd or a 1st for them to accept it

PPCLI is that dude who was kinda cool, but i think did some drugs and went all evil genius crazy or something...

Can't believe some people..  This is why I always  hold eye contact while making a circle with my fingers on one hand, then sticking a single finger from the other hand in and out through the circle. I generally top this off by rapidly raising my eyebrows.

You're not going to get a 55 point+ 25 year old first line center for a third line winger who will get worse in the following years.

This is a wonderful vision, but what keeps making everybody think that a team wants to take Booth's contract?

Seems your insistent on thinking that Higgins is greater than or equal to than Little in terms of value. On to my second point of why would Florida want a player they traded away back again after he has been struggling greatly and has a large cap hit? Add to that, that they could keep Boyes and flip him at the deadline for a 2nd round pick. Booth, right now, has negative value. If the Canucks are going to trade him they should wait until he at least has a shred of value.
