Addressing Forward Depth

25 October 2013 - 01:17 PM

Clearly the Canucks need a bit of a hand offensively. Here's a deal to shore up our team and crack the window open a bit:

To Vancouver: Kris Versteeg, Shawn Matthias
To Florida: David Booth, Jordan Schroeder, 2nd Round Pick, 2nd Round Pick (2015)

-Next chapter of the Canucks-Panthers trade drama. Over at HFboards Panther fans were saying they would gladly take back Booth and have been less than impressed with oft-injured and apparently disinterested Versteeg. Taking back his contract for Booth's, and given the chance to contend again should boost Steeg.

(PROPOSAL) CBA trade loophole

31 December 2012 - 03:46 PM

Luongo to Toronto has been talked about at nauseum...however with the CBA potentially including amnesty buy outs, it may prove to be the last asset the Canucks can offer to sweeten the pot for the Leafs to give up what Canucks management dubs the fair amount.

So Leafs, throw Mike Komisarek in there. By acquiring Komisarek and henceforth buying him out, the Leafs save the amnesty clause for a guy like Tim Connolly, thus opening up just under 9 million in cap dollars for this year, and the Canucks solidify the trade they want by exploiting the amnesty clause. The Canucks don't really have any real long term candidates for buyouts outside of Malhotra and Ballard. However, I maintain that Ballard has trade value, while it may not be much, he is a valuable asset in the right situation. Buying out Connolly may seem strange given its the final year of his contract, but other intriguing players are about to come available via buy outs and cap dumping trades. A guy like Dany Heatley for instance.

So maybe:

To Vancouver: Joffrey Lupul, Carl Gunnarson, Mike Komisarek
To Toronto: Roberto Luongo, Anton Rodin
