2014 lineup projection

51 posts in this topic

BUSY DAY AT THE OFFICE BOYS:

Okay, here’s what I propose we look like for next season:

Keep: FORWARDS DEFENCE

Burrows Bieksa

Higgins Hamhuis

Jensen Garrison

Kassian Tanev

Kesler Stanton

Mathias

Richardson

Santorelli

D.Sedin

H.Sedin

Discard: FORWARDS DEFENCE

Booth (Buyout) Edler

Hansen Weber

Schroeder

Demote: Archibald

Dalpe

On the bubble:

Sestito

Projected lineup:

F1 D. Sedin H. Sedin Jensen

F2 _UFA__ Kesler __UFA_

F3 Burrows Santorelli/Horvat Higgins

F4 Richardson Mathias Kassian

D1 Tanev Bieksa

D2 Garrison Hamhuis

D3 Corrado Stanton

G1 Lack

G2 Markstrom/veteran backup

We have $10M in cap space going into next year, with Kassian, Santorelli, Tanev to resign on that list.

Kassian: 3 YR @ $2M per year

Santorelli: 2 YR @ $2M per year

Tanev: 5 YR @ 2.75M per year

Leaves us with $4.5M, in addition to $5M from Edler, 2.5M from Hansen, 4.25M from Booth, meaning in actuality, they have $16.25M to spend.

Notable free-agents; Ryan Callahan- could slot in beside Kes on F2 (4 YR @ 6M per year), Paul Stastny for F2 (2 YR @ 6M per season

Leaves us with 4.25M for minor league roster signings, depth signings, veteran goalie.

Potential depth FAs.

Victoria born- Adam Cracknell. Plays in Stl.

Dave Bolland

Steve Ott

Tanner Glass (Bring him back!!)

Trevor Lewis

Blake Comeau

Brian Boyle

Players to fight in the system:

Shinkaruk (doubtful he plays, he missed most of this season to injury)

Gaunce

Cassles

Obviously some things need to go a certain way, for example, Edler needs to waive his no-trade clause. getting FA to sign in Vancouver could be more difficult than in years past, but as we've all learned, money talks.

Thoughts?

Id rather have Horvat on third line Center and let Santo be on Kesler's wing. Higgy - Kes - Santo. Wouldnt mind that 2nd line.

Torts has stated numerous times that he likes KESLER on the wing. With all the injuries he had no choice to put him at center.

D SEDIN H SEDIN JENSEN

BURROWS HORVAT KESLER

HIGGINS MATTHIAS KASSIAN

SESTITO RICHARDSON HANSEN

DALPHE

Buy out Booth sign a good UFA R hand d man. If we trade KESLER than you sign a top notch RW UFA to play on the second line.

This really depends on what type of team the Canucks wants to be. I'm sure the owners are going to pressure Gillis to make this a playoff team again instead of a retool that is desperately needed.

If we are pushing for a playoff spot next year, it's clear we need help up front to start with.

Kesler if he remains, he needs to be on the wing. If we can have Paul Stastny centering him, we should have a solid 2nd line, which may actually end up being our 1st line, if not a 1a/1b situation.

We need to keep our young assets so UFA may be the only way to go.

The next obvious glaring hole is a puck moving offensive defenseman. IMO, along with many others we have too many redundant defenseman. Move Garrison if possible.

Why do you want Hansen out? He's one of the only players who works hard each and every game!

My lineup is:

1st: Lucic Crosby Perry

2nd: Benn Getzlaf Giroux

3rd: Sedin Sedin Burrows

4th: Sestito Lain Richarson

Defence:

Chara Weber

Suter Jones

Keith Karlsson

Goal:

Does it really matter with that lineup?

Okay guys, I've done the hard part of mapping out how we win the next 5 cups. Someone else figure out how to get them all here and under cap that's not illegal!

(Actually, I'm okay if its illegal as long as someone else gets arrested for it)

:canucks:

So unrealistic. Why would Karlsson be on the 3rd pair?

Our Bottom Six looks nice next year

Higgins-Horvat-Santroelli (15 mins a game)

Matthias-Richardson-Kassian (13 mins a game)

That just shows you our depth of bottom 6 six guys. And we still have

Sestito

Lain

Achiblad

Dalpe

Welsh

Schroeder

All pushing for Bottom 6 Spots

As for our Top Six

D.Sedin-H.Sedin-Jensen

_______-Kesler-Burrows?

I'd like to see another sniper added maybe Matt Mouslon? Ryan Callahan? Someone along those lines. plus add a top 4 d-man Like Matt Niskanen

Then our mini rebuild is complete add one of Perlini/Virtanen/Tuch/Richie to our prospect group and were set

if we dont trade kesler and if Horvat makes the team than this:

Burrows Henrik Jensen

Daniel Kesler Kassian

Higgins Horvat Matthias

Santo Richardsson Hansen

Sestito

that is a great bottom 6!!!!!!

If we do trade keeler we can either move santo to 2C between or use whichever young C we get from the kesler trade
