  1. Losing Lind isn’t ideal but it could be much worse. Look at the Oilers offseason so far: Out: Jones, Larsson, 3rd In: Keith Staying: Smith for multiple years
  2. It would be nice to sign Adam Larsson and Jani Hakanpaa to deals which would allow us to move Schmidt back to his natural left side. It would give us a d core of: Hughes - Larsson Schmidt - Hakanpaa Rathbone - Myers Joulevi I think these are affordable moves if we can move Holtby and buyout Virtanen. It would also allow us to potentially pick up another winger from Seattle to strengthen our scoring depth. My personal choice would be Mason Appleton but that would require a lot of assets going the other way in draft picks but it would give us another option
  3. Jim Benning’s comment yesterday about wanting to bring in another Russian player to help with Podkolzin’s transition to the NHL makes me wonder who that individual may be. One name that comes to mind is free agent Ivan Barbashev who would be inexpensive, can play a physical game and is a free agent if he isn’t signed soon by St Louis. He could play 3rd line centre or move up and down the lineup as needed. Although I can’t understand why St Louis would allow him to get to free agency except that they are trying to move out salary in Tarasenko and bring in a big name free agent.
  4. How about more of a package deal just to ensure our C position is solid. To Vancouver: Logan Brown, Chris Tierney To Ottawa: Olli Joulevi, Zack MacEwen
  5. Dante Fabbro was benched for all of Nashville’s postseason games this year. With rumours going around that they would like to extend Ekholm could a deal be made to bring Fabbro back home to BC? To Vancouver: Dante Fabbro To Nashville: Olli Joulevi + 3rd round pick Dante Fabbro has much more NHL experience then Olli Joulevi so the Canucks would have to sweeten the deal with a prospect or pick.
  6. Defensemen that fit that criteria and are either a UFA or a RFA (trade possibilities) Right Handed - UFA David Savard - 30, 2020/2021 Cap Hit $4,250,000 Adam Larsson - 28, 2020/2021 Cap Hit $4,166,666 Travis Hamonic - 31, 2020/2021 Cap Hit $1,250,000 Left Handed - UFA Ryan Murray - 28, 2020/2021 Cap Hit $4,600,000 Jamie Oleksiak - 28, 2020/2021 Cap Hit $2,137,500 Alex Edler - 35, 2020/2021 Cap Hit $6,000,000 RFA's Vince Dunn - 24 Nikita Zadorov - 26 Considering we probably need two defe
  7. If his return is in jeopardy does it make sense to sign Sutter to a cheap deal to be our 4C and then still go out and find a 3C?
  8. What should happen is that they move Schmidt to the left side which is his natural position and go out and find a RH dman to play with him. Having a left side that includes Schmidt, Hughes, Joulevi/Rathbone puts us in a very strong position. Go out get Dumba, Jones, Larsson to play on the first pairing, resign Hamonic and we should be set.
  9. 1. Trade 9th pick, Kole Lind & Jonah Gadovich for Sam Reinhart 2. Let Edler, Sutter and Baertschi go 3. Buyout Erikkson, Roussel and Virtanen 4. Trade Olli Juolevi, 2022 2nd Round Pick for Matt Dumba 5. Sign David Savard 6. Sign Travis Hamonic and Mike Reilly for depth 7. Trade 2021 3rd Round pick and Linus Karlsson for rights to Andrew Copp 7. Let Seattle take Holtby Miller-Pettersson-Boeser Pearson-Horvat-Reinhart Hoglander-Copp-Podkolzin Motte-Beagle-Highmore Schmidt-Dumba Hughes-Savard Rathbone-Myers

  11. My comment was a little “tongue in cheek” and I agree we should hire an assistant coach with more NHL experience like say Baumgartner
  12. Their power play was horrible under Muller and didn’t improve until March when Alex Burrows took over. Perhaps we should consider bringing Burrows back as an Assistant Coach instead.
  13. I also really like Kent Johnson for the 9th pick if he is available. Great offensive skills, responsible in his own end and a great skater. I also really like Logan Mailloux for our 2nd round pick.
  14. I agree I think Logan Mailloux would be a great pick up in the second round. If he had played a whole year in the OHL this year I think he would be ranked much higher due to his size and skating ability.
