  1. I do wonder if it is similar to what Kevin Labanc did in San Jose and maybe other players will follow suit. A lot of teams are up against the cap. A lot of contracts that were signed before the flat cap. He signed for 1 year 1 million and then half way through the season signed a 4 year 18.9 million dollar deal (4.725 cap hit). Will be interesting to see how Bjugstad performs this year.
  2. If you could add 1 forward, 1 defenseman, 1 draft pick, one buy out who would it be? Bonus, what line combinations would you have?

  3. Olli Juolevi is a talented offensive player with decent size. I was actually excited when the Canucks drafted despite thinking Tkachuk and Keller would be good offensive talents. D was a position of need and I thought it was better for the club long term to take a shot at this player. Since then, Hughes is the clear Powerplay Quarterback for the next 10 plus years. Rathbone may be a good secondary option and Schmidt is currently signed long term. Injuries have limited him physically as well as the time away recovering has not allowed him to develop at the rate we would like. I think there is still some trade value and cache from being a 5th overall pick for some teams to be interested. However in a flat cap world and out team is up against it, maybe now is the time for the team to be creative: His strengths are: His shot (especially along the wall and around the circle on the left side) His passing ability Overall offensive awareness Maybe trying him out on the third or second line wing, he would be decent defensively as a forward. Dustin Byfuglien and Brent Burns have been moved from D to forward and done well. Maybe it is his best chance to succeed in Vancouver. Just throwing it out there during the lull of the off season. Want to hear peoples thoughts and ready to hear it from the keyboard warriors. Go Canucks Go!
  4. Pearson is a solid second line left winger. They do not grow on trees. Many others were tried with Horvat without success. He also has a winning attitude. Cap wise he is already making 3.75m. Baertschi and Sutters money combined is 7.73m which is going to Petey. I would think Pearson wants 4-4.5. If he produces 40 points in a regular season is fair value. Dollar value is basically $100,000's per hundred points. I trust him more than the wingers coming up in our system.
