[Speculation] Canucks interested in Wayne Simmonds

Baertschi + Woo for Simmonds?

 

Or 

 

Woo + Roussel for Miles Wood?

I would love to get rid of Baertschi's contract but not at the expense of Woo. He's a gamer and we don't have anyone else like him in our system.

 

Miles Wood would be nice, but is he that much of an improvement on Roussel that he would be worth giving but Woo for? Not for me. 

 

Prospects I'd consider trading:

 

Lockwood

Palmu

Perron

Brisebois

Gadjovich

Utunen

Teves

Jasek

McDonough

Chatfield

Focht

Karlsson

Sautner

Malone

Tryamkin

If they wanted Woo back in the return I would honestly make them take back Eriksson.

 

I agree, Benning wouldn't dangle some of those names for a rental unless we're dumping a contract with term.

 

Woo + Bear + Sutter for Simmonds

 

Or Woo + Eriksson

I wonder if we used a prospect to get a guy like wood who has another year on his contract, if we could flip him at the draft for a pick. The contracts we want to move we aren’t getting anything for. If a heavy team takes the cup again maybe we can turn a prospect into wood then turn him into a 2020 pick.

I think I'd rather the Canucks go after Nate Thompson instead as the price would be cheaper. Thompson can play center or wing, is solid on faceoffs, kills penalties and has some bite to his game.

Simmonds is on the decline - no thanks. I'd rather put MacEwan in the lineup.

Hell no to trading Woo.

With you on this one.

 

Woo also plays physical hockey. See him as a Bieksa 2.0 with more offensive upside.

I almost have Woo in the Hog and Pod category of prospect. Mostly cause he's our only good defensive prospect on the right side. He is physical, and has that intensity. It's obvious he takes the WJ snubs to heart. Like that about him. I wouldn't trade him and Eriksson for Simmonds. Honestly.

I agree.  We need to let MacEwen  fill the role

I’m gonna actually be upset if they trade something for Simmonds. Guy sucks. Look at what happened with him when he went to Nashville

Only NMC's require protection. Any NTC's (regular or modified) may be exposed. There's ZERO chance we protect Eriksson.

Unfortunately, there is almost zero chance we can trade Eriksson. Unless they add some serious prospect and/or picks. :(

Just hope he takes his signing bonus and retires this summer.

I just looked, and he had 3 points in 17 games after being traded to the Preds last season. 

He might beat Lucic in a foot race, but the game has definitely passed him by. I'm hoping that JB passes on him unless he comes on the cheap.

After his bonus, with retention and adding picks/prospects...it's possible...but I never actually mentioned trading him there :lol:

 

And hell yes to retiring *fingers crossed*

My bet is JB is using Simmonds as a ruse to get someone else. He's one sly dawg. 

I have that feeling too.  Way too much smoke regarding Simmonds.  How many times has there been this much "insider info" on JB's deals that actually came true?

 

No one had us and Toffoli on the radar.

Only thing I could see Is a cheap cap dump but how would that work without sending a prospect. I don’t like it

Any of these are fine to trade by me too.

Exactly my sentiment. JB's trades tend to come out of nowhere.
