its gotta be tough, there aren't many teams with cap space and we really don't need to take on someone else's problem just for the sake of switching problem players.

 

I have to think CBJ is looking for Fs but my feeling is Bergevin will beat us to it.

Hard to see a GM giving JB much trade value wise when they all know he is in a dilemma to move players off the roster by opening night.

 

What was with the poster saying Graovac makes the roster...Not a chance he beats out Jake, Goldy or Gaud. LE should be waived like another poster said and give him 29 days 9 games to see what he can do. By then, Roussel will be back possibly so just send the Mop to Utica and bury him for 3 years. Time to move on and have younger players who can contribute more than maybe kill a penalty all while not making close to 6m

 

But LE will be on opening day roster, be shocked if JB waives him

What dilemma is that really? He'd like to move a F or two, he doesn't need to.

 

It's more likely that he'll have difficulty making a trade as most teams are in a similar predicament of sorting out who to keep/who to send down and aren't presently looking to add much. That can change drastically a couple weeks + in to the season though.

Graovac looked good to me as well as Gaudette, Brisebois, and some others.

Goldobin and other regulars from last year have not really looked that great.

Motte, for example, looks a little slower (and maybe heavier?); he's in tonight, I believe, so we will get an update.

 

But I don't think we are going to lose any player we do not want to lose.

If they can be sent down so we don't lose any players, imo, they will be sent down.

We need to keep as many near-ready NHL level players at the ready as possible.

 

There will be time later for trades, waivers, injuries, whatever that give the Gaudettes and MacEwens their time in the show.

I think tonight's game will provide the info to make the final decisions over the next week.

But I don't think we're going to give away Goldobin for example because Gaudette has outplayed him in the preseason.

Is Loui gonna be on opening roster? 

 

You seldom see 6 mill players get waived. Even Lucic didn't get waived and he was even more ineffective than Loui. 

 

Gaudette might not start the year with the team but he'll have a full time job by the time we're in the playoffs. 

I hope not.

I think Lucic amassed over 250 hits last season. . That’s huge 4th line pressure.

Eriksson had 3 or 4 hits..  Even Tyler Motte had 200 hits.

Posters here might rave that LE is a great PK’r..  but there is a better value in keeping Motte, Graovac, Gaudette, or Sutter for 4th line roles and the PK.

Eriksson is no game changer, even on the PK..

We will have  special team squads that this entire team will be better at,  the spotlight on Eriksson has become so small now that I think his exit would not be noticed,. Except that for a better player to rightfully take a position with this club to perform and develop.. and a cap hit that efects is negatively until he retires in Utica.

I don't think we'll give him away, as I think he likely clears waivers :lol: Otherwise, agree ;)

Canucks should be gunning to win game one and ice the best roster they can.  This is where I'm at right now :

 

ferland   pettersson   boeser
baertschi   gaudette   miller
eriksson   horvat   sutter/pearson/leivo
virtanen  beagle  motte


keep :  goldobin (skill), schaller (checking, speed)

trade for futures any/all of :  sutter, leivo, pearson

J-23 (hope I have his character name correct) has predicted for days now that Gaudette should make this team and that Big Mac is deserving in his wake. 

 

Gaudette and Big Mac deserve to be on this team.

I approve this!

 

Mac is basically a bigger Motte with a little more offence and grit.

Probably the last game we seen Loui Eriksson play for Vancouver.

I wish you were correct, but sure looks like he will be with the Canucks to at the very least start the year. Would like him gone too, can find a good pk player for far less, or you know give that opportunity to another Canuck

Weisbrod mentioned we may see a veteran player who might surprise us hit the waiver wire.

 

Could be Loui. Could it also be Sutter? If Sutter got claimed it would free up 4.35m in cap space.

John Weisbrod on Adam Gaudette:

 

"We've always done it based on merit. We've lost guys on waivers, and if that happens, if you're forced to put a guy on waivers that you wouldn't have expected to, especially if it's not a young player... Maybe that's for the good [of the team]."

 

"I think back to some of the people we've put on waivers, we just try to make decisions based on who gives us the best chance to win, what's our best alignment, what's our best set-up?"

 

"I've heard a lot of the discussion about Adam, but whether Adam stays up or goes down, it won't be based on the fact that he doesn't need waivers. It'll be based on the fact that we think that's best for him, and we know we can get him down."

 

"He doesn't just draw the short straw because he doesn't need waivers. If our best alignment is with him on the team, then he'll stay."

Do you have the quote on that older player possibly hitting waivers?

They won't waive the "Foundational" Sutter. Let's all hope Loui E is the player going on waivers...but don't hold your breath

Horvat is 2nd line centre ? Horvat is top 3 player on  this  team he will never play on 3rd line...Need this future captain playing over 20 mins a game...

Just because Gaudette is having a good pre season he is not close to Horvat's talent....
