In Topic: Bo Horvat Talk

Horvat will NOT be stuck on the 4th line.  Its 3rd line or nothing pretty much

The days of the "4th line" are over my friend, more and more teams are running all there lines and in the West it's the only way to survive. Also no one is really "stuck" on a line they will play there way up or down.

Lol ok my turn :bigblush: 

I could see it shaking out to something like this if Horvat makes the team.


D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Vrbata

Matthias - Bonino - Burrows

Higgins - Vey - Kassian

Richardson <-> Horvat - Hansen

Sestito, Dorsett


Richardson and Horvat can alternate as needed.

In Topic: [Offical] Kesler traded to Anaheim

25 June 2014 - 05:06 AM


Yea, I agree.


If we can get Reinhart, Virtanen, plus the 24th and only give up Kesler, Shinkaruk, and the 6th, I think we end up much better in the long run.


Sounds great if it pans out like that but there's an unaccounted "top prospect" we would be getting from the widely speculated ANA trade of Etem + 10th +24th for Kesler. Not sure which side of the scale that top prospect would land but it would definitely give us more options. On the flip side this would also give Tallon more pieces to pick from which could suck cause he's obviously playing hardball at the moment.


It seems Tallon is wanting to see what we get back in a deal for Kesler before agreeing to any sort of deal and the Canucks are wanting to strike a deal for 1st overall before moving Kesler to avoid having to put the newly acquired pieces on the the table. Tallon however holds the cards so it will be interesting to see how the draft plays out if management is prepared to deal Kesler Friday.


So from a purely speculative point of view, after the discussed Kesler to ANA trade we would be looking at a general grouping of; 6th overall, 10th overall, 24th overall, Etem, Shinkaruk as possible trade chips involved in getting 1st overall. Price will be steep, as it should be so I'd wager it would take 3 pieces from that list to get a deal done.

In Topic: (Proposal) VAN-CHI

I'd say Saad is untouchable, if we're making a deal with CHI I want Teravainen, Clendening + 1st coming back.

In Topic: TRADING for future of the D core (Proposal)

Interesting deals minus the DET trade. TOR is an interesting trade partner as they're rumored to be shopping a lot of players including JVR who is someone I'd personally want coming back if we're moving Hamhuis. Also since we're on the subject how does getting Phanuef in a trade from TOR sound to the masses? I wouldn't mind it tbh but I'd make them retain some salary and I'd pair him with Hamhuis if we got him, that would be a nice duo IMO.
