      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Signing] Canucks sign Jonah Gadjovich

Recommended Posts

I have said in the past, this guy could be the Patrick Maroon type player for us who works well on a top line with a skilled duo.

Can't bring him over to the Canucks until his team's season is over. I think this is just them rewarding his play in the OHL, he gets a nice signing bonus. Positive reinforcement. ^_^  

It could also be a reminder to fans that we're rebuilding and our future is bright -_-

I see a bit of Tomas Holmstrom in him as well.

 

In a few years from now, we will be praising Jim Benning for 2017 Draft - Elias Pettersson, Kole Lind, Jonah Gadjovich, Michael DiPietro, Jack Rathbone, Kristoffer Gunnarsson, Petrus Palmu, Matt Brassard. That is likely five NHL players that we drafted that will be really valuable for us.

Mr. Screen :wub:

Excellent.  With the Sedins looking like they're on their retirement tour, and the likes of Burmistrov and Vanek on one-year deals (TDL bait), we could see Dahlen, Gaudette, Lind, and Gadjovich in some Canuck games before the year is out.  More likely, maybe one or two will come in and the others may get PTOs in Utica, depending on when their seasons finish.

You heard Chaput got called up today, right?
This team needs to dump vets at both the NHL and AHL level. 
Boucher and Goldobin are ripping it up down there leading the team... and oh, those "defensive issues"? Boucher is even and Goldy is +1

Butttttt..... they have to call up a vet to make room for Rodin, who is wasting away eating tubs of popcorn in the bleeds hoping one day he might get a chance to (gasp) PLAY HOCKEY, instead of, you know, calling up someone who can actually HELP US SCORE SOME ^%$ GOALS!

empty seats at Rogers are well deserved 

Sedins need to be benched and/or sheltered. (yes it's come to that) and not be put on the power play. at.all. Yes, they're still solid "possession" players. Awesome, put them on the penalty kill then, where wasting %$#ing time is actually helpful. 

/rant lol

If things go in our favour, having him and virtanen at the top six will make us tougher.

I'd like us to sign Kane this summer. Him, Virtanen and Gadjovich scattered throughout our top 9 would be so much fun :bigblush:

I like the fact that he plays and nhl game already and seems to be very mature for his age. It's way too early to tell how effective he can be at the nhl level but in my opinion he's the safest of this year's picks to make the nhl soon.

Signing him now also buys two years of possible entry level slide (extending a 3-year ELC to potentially 5 years).

 

He just turned 19 (Oct 12) but contract-wise, his "ELC signing age" (age on Sept 15 of contact year) is 18.

 

His contract can slide for his age 18 (2017-18) and age 19 (2018-19) years.

 

Signing him next year, he falls under the exception rule (turns 20 between Sept 16 and Dec 31) and would not be slide eligible.

good call

thanks for that insight

I have a feeling we will sign Kane this offseason to a big deal, and he will be a good player for us. Buffalo will lose him for nothing lol I almost pity them.

Still have reservations about what Kane could do to the chemistry of a young group rebuilding. Not sure if that is what he will want either as he might want a serious CUP shot. The Canucks are years away from that.

I'd like to see Kane in a Canucks jersey, local boy who can score and plays with sandpaper would be great.

 

Thats entirely contingent on if he's truly grown up or not though.

As long as we don't have to give anything but cap space sign me up. I especially would want him given what Virtanen has gone through from a party guy to serious athlete. Could be someone who could get Kane off that track. Add that to the fact he's a BC boy with a ton of skill and it's a nobrainer to sign him (depending of course on cap and if he wants to come here, which I think he does).

Kane's social life/media presence has been virtually (no pun intended) non-existent this season. He's focused solely on hockey and it shows.

 

I think that Kane will be going to free agency, and by all accounts, at least as far as I've heard, he is interested in being a Canuck. It'll cost the team, but there will be a massive amount of cap space ($14M) available to sign him, should he come here.

 

Getting a player of his capabilities in the forward corps, would be a huge boost to the rebuild, as his playing style looks to mesh pretty seamlessly with the likes of Horvat, Virtanen, and Boeser. Fast, physical, and likes to shoot. I could see Green being a fan.
