So if you can only have 2 of 3, who are you re-signing? Markstrom / Tanev / Toffoli

 

Markstrom for sure. So Tanev or Toffoli? Generally I think teams take the top 4 RHD over the 2nd line winger, but in this case who knows. We do have Stecher... (Who also needs a contract) 

If we can unload Sutter's contract (he only has 1 year remaining), we might be able to sign Toffoli as well.

Sad to lose Madden, but this is a good trade for the Canucks.    The Canucks now have a legit good 2nd line with size.     
 

I don’t think it will be too difficult to read-sign Toffoli, but I am saddened to lose Madden (hey, that almost rhymed!)

That's fair. I wasn't worried about him leaving. For a young team like ours who has cap problems I like having as many legit NHL prospects as you can, that's where you get an edge on teams.

 

Anyways, Benning put the foot to the floor. Wonder if he'll do anything else at this TDL. Toughness would still be a nice area to address. 

 

 

Toughness and shed some damn cap to re-sign everybody.

 

Don't want to let Toffoli walk and lose Madden for nothing.

 

That would make everyone upset.

If Tyler walks it makes us look bad if we don't go deep. If he re signs tho maybe it works out. Madden is immensely talented but we knew Jim would need to move assets out. Our cupboards are starting to get really full.

 

I just sorry about Madden biting us in the buns in a few years time. Surprised we moved him, but I was surprised when we moved McCann too. 

 

Grats to Jim. Fingers crossed Tyler fits in well and opts to stay!

Makes you wonder what’s next. We’re all in here, guys. We’re not grabbing one of the big fish and not tuning up the defence too.

Vintage does Tofoli play tough at all?  I think JB is still doing more,  

From what I can recall, I wouldn't consider him a "tough" player, but he doesn't have any fear about driving to the net or digging into board battles. He gets very little PIMs yearly, so he's not gonna beat anyone up for us. Always hated him when we played him.

Long view yes, definitely.  Heh, but maybe wait until there is some breathing room?  (ie October 2020)

I was hoping it was early this year but that didn't happen.

 

I see a lot of Honey Badger(in his prime) in Jake but with more bite and snipin. Maybe a Badger with a shotgun.

A lot of people are going to be quoted in the future if this trade works out like the Miller trade has so far.

If he resigns then its not bad, if its for 20 games then I really don't like it.  I really wanted to see more less trades like recently where guys with some sort of term were being traded, making it worthwhile for today and futures.

From wiki

"In the 2014–15 season, Toffoli played a majority of the season with Jeff Carter and Tanner Pearson with the line being dubbed "That 70s Line" since all three had numbers in the 70s."

 

They won cup in 2014.

On July 1st the Canucks give Loui 3M then his salary is 1M for the season, bonus the following year of 1M with a 3M base. That's only 5M of actual money for 2 years with a caphit of 6M. There has to be a team willing to take him on with a decent pick or prospect.

I’m in the ‘Overpayment’ camp simply because Toffoli is on an expiring deal. Is he a good addition? Yes. But giving up Madden and a 2nd for a rental on a team that honestly isn’t ready to make a serious run yet hurts. 

 

I’m wondering if maybe there’s something going on behind the scenes with Madden we’re unaware of, like he decided he didn’t want to come to Vancouver.

Exactly, gotta figure out a way to move Sutter.

 

Don't think we're gunna move Eriksson easily. How many more key futures do you wanna give up making that happen...

I wonder if Madden told the Canucks that it was not his intention to sign?

 

givem our prospect pool, he may have wanted better odds 

 

if that is the case I like the deal

Unbelievable benning actual got someone to take Schaller. Wouldn’t surprise me to see Schaller on waivers or moved again. 
really this is madden (who very good) and a 2nd for toffoli. 
I like it good move. But only If he resigns. 

Downside even more cap crunched
