[Speculation] Canucks possible targets Maroon, Nyquist, Silfverberg

Only problem being that anything we'd have in trade is probably not what ANA is looking for. I'd wager he's off to a contender.

Goldy should do it.  Anaheim isn't making the playoffs so you'd think an NHL prospect would make them consider it.  Silfverberg is a UFA...not really getting much.

If we want scoring why would we trade for a guy that has almost half as many points as Goldobin and can't skate?

 

Also no way we're looking to help a team like St.Louis who we're battling with for a playoff spot.

Doesn't make sense for the Canucks to buy any of the guys mentioned. 

 

Silfverberg would have been intriguing a couple years ago but his play has declined.  While I think he's better than he has shown this season, I don't think the Canucks are in a position to acquire him as a rental.  He might be an interesting UFA target this summer since his performance this year may affect his value but I don't see that happening unless the Canucks ship out some forwards and don't have confidence that one of the younger prospects can make the jump next year.

 

Gustav Nyquist (DET) is also intriguing but, again, I don't see how the Canucks can be interested.  As others have mentioned, they already have Eriksson's contract weighing them down and while I don't mind him as a player, they can't afford to throw another big contract to an aging forward.

 

If there's any deal that the Canucks may be interested in at the deadline or this summer, then I would think it has to be a deal involving a D.  No idea what that market is like right now but I presume any deals of that nature would be left to the summer.

They'd likely get more for Silfver than Goldy from a contender.

Looking at Silfverberg's playoff numbers, there would be many playoff teams looking to acquire him.

 

A 1st round pick would definitely have to be involved. So not happening on our end.

These all seem like a nope.

 

If we make a move, it has to be for quality.

 

We need a legitimate top 6 winger, and we need a top 4 RHD who brings some offence.  They also need to be young and under club control in order to make it worth us spending assets on.

 

Otherwise it is waiting until the UFA market and see if we can fill a hole or two.

No thanks. Especially on the Maroon front. The guy just got traded to his home city, and gets to be closer to his son, which clearly means a lot to him.

Only one of those 3 I’d give a fair price for is Nyquist. Other than that either trade for a defenseman or stay the course.

This isn't a rumor, a rumor would be legit sources stating that the canucks have called on said player.  This is more just speculation, but not even, it's simply just dudes talking  hockey on TSN.

We should be sellers not buyers. With Edler and Baertschi out come deadline we could be 4 or 5 games back behind St Louis for the final wild card spot.

I'd for sure kik tires on silfersurfer hes exactly what we need as long as he would re sign for a reasonable cap hit. I could see him as a great fit anywhere in our top 9 and wouldn't take a spot from our youth but make them earn it.

I dont think it would take a 1st. Im sure they would want a 1st but that price will come down.

Canucks don't need any players over 25 years old. None of the above.

Wouldn't trade for him but I be willing to give Maroon a shot as a UFA. 

 

Maroon-EP-Boeser.

 

He clears up a lot of room, brings toughness+size and easily puts up 20 playing with EP.

 

Put up 27 goals riding shotgun with McDavid.

I'd be down for Slifverberg for sure...Big body that can score. Swedish... Take goldys spot with Petey.  Yep let's do it.

He turns 29 in October. Could be a risky contract if it's long-term.

I have some ideas about a team I don't pay attention to,  whose GM I don't listen to....

 

Maroon makes no sense whatsoever imo, aside from having size on the wing.   Not a good player without the puck - and only 4 goals this year with it.  Why would this expiring contract be something the Canucks would spend an asset on?

I do have an offer though:  to St Louis - Sam Gagner, to Van - Maroon.   Maroon would be lucky to crack the lineup - and imo would fall right behind Schaller in the depth chart, between the Canucks and Utica.  I'd rather see what Gaudette could do than waste the roster spot on a guy that I'd have literally no interest in bringing back.

What 'secondary scoring' is Maroon bringing?   Motte provides more in a strict shutdown role in much harder minutes.

 

Nyqvist - why would the Canucks pay that price for a small, 29 yr old RW?  He doesn't really represent a primary team need, period.   Where the Buttons get their ideas - who knows?

 

Silfverberg is the broken clock idea among the 3.   At least his 12 goals come with 39% ozone starts - in other words his production could be misleadingly low (12 goals).  You'd have to consider him imo at a  low to moderate cost - but pass if the price is anything significant.   He's a good two way player but he's probably not physical enough to be the right/correct winger for EP... Could make sense in Baertschi's spot but this team isn't really in the market for rentals.   It will be interesting though to see what Anaheim might expect in a return for him - I think he's interesting but likely a player you look to upgrade upon in due course (as a scoring winger), and not really a need as a shutdown/'bottom' 6 winger.  If the team hadn't already acquired an arguably better fit (Leivo) there might be a bit more interest, but I'm not sure at this point that even a reasonably priced Silfverberg makes much sense unless Anaheim is willing to take what this team is willing to part with (doubtful).    I also have to wonder if Anaheim are going to be sellers = they're 3 pts out of a playoff spot.
