    $2.55 million is a low enough number to maybe make him tradeable.


    If there is still an opportunity to use him to shed cap, I still do that.


    I don’t think he is good enough for our top line and he isn’t a fit on the Horvat line which will have lots of defensive responsibilities.


    We have other, cheaper options for the 3rd line.

    Cheaper options for 3rd line? Less than 2.55m? Other than Gaudette, who?

    That's not the point, the point is to have fun speculating and creating interesting trade scenarios. 


    Also trading Boeser and Eriksson for Bertuzzi is nothing like trading Eriksson and a 1st round pick to shed him. 

    Agreed. It’s actually much worse. Boeser is what most teams want thier 1st round picks to turn into.

    you are crazy and should never include Demko in this trade as this is giving him away and not understanding that Vancouver has Arizona over a barrel and are negotiating against yourself.

    Some have him included as a sweetener to dump Eriksson. I would love to keep both him and Markstrom but we can only protect 1. After the Schneider for a top 10 pick and how it has played out, Demko likely only fetches a 2nd rounder. I don’t think we can land OEL without a top prospect (at least I think he’s still a prospect) like Demko. Smaller pieces and bad contracts aren’t going to get it done. Have to give to get to improve this team and OEL vastly improves this team on the backend. 


    Arizona doesn’t have to trade OEL. I also haven’t read that he has demanded a trade. The only leverage we have is that Vancouver is one of two destinations he is willing to go to. 

  4. OEL






    Juolevi or Rathbone or Woo




    Kuemper may be on the move and this could help push them to make the deal and she’s his salary. Demko can be thier future starter. Virtanen likely slots into thier 2nd line whilst Sutter takes over 3rd line Center duties which they seem to have a need for. Juolevi or Rathbone potentially gives them a top 4 damn.  Eriksson gets them to the cap floor without having to pay real dollars which seems to the the real reason they are trying to move OEL out. 


    We could then sign Markstrom, Toffoli and Tanev.

    I think you have misread and perhaps thinking my detailed roster was for next season? But it's for 2021-22.


    The roster for 2021-22 (which is TWO off seasons from now) should not include the following guys because their current contracts will have ended and IMO JB should not resign them: Edler, Stecher, Fantenberg, Benn, Sutter, Baertschi. There are some tough decisions to be made about Markstrom and Tanev.


    I haven't "gutted" the defense, it is just that our D corps is aging out and it is time for a revamp. We need to get younger, bigger, tougher and better puck movers in our D corps. I think that Pesce, Cernak, Tryamkin would be excellent targets to get younger and tougher (these guys would replace Edler and Tanev). We also need the likes of Juolevi, Rathbone, Rafferty to come in and improve our zone clearances and offense from the back end.


    Regarding Hoglander and Podkolzin. I expect both players to make the roster in 2021-22. I think it is clear that JB will need to rely on these younger guys coming through and replacing the Sutters of the team, so that our roster stays young and we can afford to pay for our core players like Pettersson and Hughes.


    One final note...I am not actually suggesting that JB should target Hall this off season. I believe the money should be spent on improving our back end, as we have some excellent forward talent coming through our farm system that will provide the boost our offence that we need to become a contender.


    What I hope the Canucks Roster will look like in 2022-2023 (The year we win the CUP)


    Hoglander Pettersson Boeser

    Miller Horvat Podkolzin

    Toffoli Gaudette Anderson (CLB)

    Motte Haula MacEwan



    Hughes Pietrangelo

    Juolevi Myers

    Rathbone Rafferty





  6. Re-Sign Markstrom 4 years 22million prior to the draft

    Re-Sign Virtanen to 1 year 2.5million show me contract

    Re-Sign Leivo 3 year/6.6million


    Trade Demko and additional piece for 1st round pick (20-30OA) at the draft

    Mutual termination of Louis Eriksson's contract after bonus is paid.

    Trade Stetcher, Goldobin, Baertschi, Sutter, to whoever for whatever preferably 1 for 1 role players and/or picks

    Let Tanev walk (could trade Tanev for Barrie at the deadline)


    Sign JG Pageau 4 years/16million

    Sign Thomas Greiss 2 years/4.5 million

    Sign Barrie 6 years/45million

    Sign depth defenseman


    I firmly believe that Hoglander lands a spot on the big club right out of training camp.


    Miller Pettersson Virtanen

    Pearson Horvat Boeser

    Hoglander Pageau Gaudette 

    Roussel Beagle Leivo


    Edler Barrie

    Hughes Myers

    Juolevi Rafferty/Trymakin

    Go after Manson or Lindholm for Stetcher, Gaudette and Woo with Ducks picking up salary for only this season as either player has 2 more years at 4.1 for Manson and 5.2 for Lindholm which will replace Tanev next year at an affordable price. 

    Canucks are going to let Stetcher walk anyways as there are younger cheaper options for 6th defenseman in Utica, Gaudette can be replaced by Madden, Focht or Costmar and Woo is an acceptable loss with Rathbone, Juelovi are making the jump in the next few years. Prospects are also supposed to be used as ammunition to get a better player and not just horded until they flame out or have a breakout season. 

    Oh man if we could get Lindholm in a Canucks Jersey..but barring an overpayment the Ducks never even consider it.

    Pretty sure Tryamkin will sign here in March. He was able to play a offensive and this year, a defensive role in Russia and performed in the top 3 in Vancouver in his rookie and only season, tops in fights, +/- and shutting down the opposition's best players. He never got pushed around. Adds "space" for the skill players and will be cheap. They should try to get him signed for Gudbranson money. He and Fantenberg make Tanev available for growing the future.


    Stecher could be a throw in to move one of the elephant contracts, Stecher, retention and Eriksson for a bad contract in return and LTIR type deal although I am certain this loop hole will be closed next CBA. 


    Stech and Guad for Risto would be a good deal, defense wins championships.

    except Stetcher is better at defense than Risto is lol

  9. If we are at the top of the division a day before the deadline, I propose the following:


    Canucks trade

    Stetcher, Madden, 2nd in 2021 to ANA for Rickard Rakell

    (Rakell can move up and down the line up, play C, RW, and LW - ANA may need more but we could add depending on what it is)


    Canucks Trade

    Baertschi to PIT for a 4th round pick

    (If they are unable to land Hall, Kredier, etc then Baertschi is good option for thier top 9 heading into the playoffs)


    Canucks trade

    Goldobin and 4th round pick (PIT) in 2021 to MTL for Kovalchuk

    (Vanek like return for MTL, we get a top 6 winger who could produce some magic w/ Pettersson and Miller)



    Canucks trade

    Tanev w/ extension in place to PHI for Gostisbehere

    (Tanev moves closer to home, PHI gets a shutdown defenseman and Vancouver gets another mobile offensive defenseman that adds more speed to our slow backend to help with our transition game - he likely finds his offensive game here in Vancouver)



    Miller Pettersson Kovalchuk

    Pearson Horvat Boeser

    Rakell Gaudette Virtanen

    Roussel Beagle Sutter





    Edler Gostisbehere

    Hughes Myers

    Trymakin/Fantenberg/Benn Rafferty



  10. I like the idea of Tanev for Barrie with both returning home. TML will not be able to afford Barrie at the 7 but may be able to get Tanev done at 5. For the Canucks that's a difference of 2 million we would need to make room for. Barrie's ask will be 8, not necessarily what he will get though. I think he's around the 6.5-7.5 range personally but hoping hed be willing to a take a hometown discount to come to and stay in Vancouver.


    I expect Juolevi, Woo, Rafferty, Trymakin to be our two way defenseman that could potentially offset the loss of a shutdown guy like Tanev. I think with the way the game has progressed and continues to progress, it would be worthwhile to have 2 offensive defenseman that could move the puck. Just look at how much Hughes has helped this year with our zone exits and entry.


    I could see


    Tanev and a prospect for Barrie. We move out Stetcher, Goldobin, Baertschi and one of Benn or Faantenberg to give us the cap flexibility to get this done. In a years time, we resign Sutter as our 4th line center. Send out Beagle and Schaller and try to keep Roussell and Motte. Sign Leivo to a two year extension. Trade Ferland this off season or next trade deadline and usher in Podk and Hoglander.


    2022 Season


    Miller Pettersson Virtanen (skill, skill and more skill)

    Pearson Horvat Boeser (Defensively responsible, can play a heavier play style and still have Boeser for that extra added finesse)

    Hoglander Gaudette Podkolzin (tenacious, relentless forecheck)

    Roussel Sutter Motte (PK, Checking line that plays a sound two-way defensively responsible game but has the ability to pop in a few from time to time)


    Edler Barrie

    Hughes Myers

    Juolevi Rafferty/Trymakin

    Well problem with that is ristlo and Myers play the same style and need a more stay a home d partner like elder. 

    Hughes is the future and we need a mean right handed D man to play with Hughes , like I said in theory that's almost perfect pairing , balance wise. 

    Also Weber is good cause his cost controlled and the way he plays when his cap hit becomes a problem he will problem go on Ltir. 

    Why against trading Brock ? I would say Forsberg is an up grade( forsberg can skate)

    also Forsberg is cost controlled too.

    buffalo is closer to minnie isn't it?

    I disagree that Forsberg is better than Brock. Brock now, arguable has a more complete game and has 43 points in 46 games. Also, don't think Forsberg is all that much "cost controlled". He has a cap hit of 6 mill for two more seasons. Not much of a difference between the two when talking about contracts.  


    I don't understand the need/desire to trade Boeser. He has 43 points in 46 games. He has chemistry with Miller, Petterson, and Horvat allowing him to move between the top lines. We don't really have an over abundance of PPG wingers on this team. Some of you are putting way too much stock in to Hoglander and Podkolzin.


    The only thing I would trade Boeser for is a young top pairing dman, otherwise Im keeping him for the long haul.


    Also HELL NO to trading Pearson. He is on pace for 60 points, plays well with Horvat, has the ability to play physical and has a caphit of 3.75 for one more year.



    Keep BOESER

    Keep PEARSON



    If you want to move someone move Sutter, Baertschi, Goldobin, Leivo, MacEwan, etc.


  12. Whilst we have an established legit #1 line in Miller, Petey, and Boes our biggest hole remains a top 6 winger to compliment Horvat. Leivo and Pearson have done an admirable job this year but neither of them can be considered top 6 players in the long run.


    What would it take to get Chris Kreider out of NYR or would it better to persuade him during the free season. He has topped out at 53 points but plays a hard, gritty game with pace and has the tools to be an all around playmaker/scorer that can create space for Horvat.


    He is a free agent at the end of this year and don't think NYR wants him back or that he would want to return whilst they are rebuilding. Nevertheless, they wont be letting him go for free


    Rafferty/Rathbone/Lind (all are progressing well and have been having good seasons for far)

    Goldobin (can join their glut of Russian prospects)

    3rd round pick in 2020 (2nd rounder if we make the Stanley Cup finals lol)


    Does this get it done? Is it better just to wait and take our chance in FA and hope no one outbids us? 25-27.5million/5 years would be good value to extend him prior to July 1, 2019


    Future Lineup


    Miller Petey Boeser

    Kreider Horvat Virtanen

    Podkolzin Gaudette Hoglander

    Roussel ???? MacEwan


  13. I'm hopeful that our lineup in 2 years will look pretty much filled with some of our prospects developing into solid fulltime NHL'ers. Its a little optimistic but I only see the 4th line center position as not being quite filled. However, a defensive face-off specialist could be had through trade or FA. I'm not very high on Lind making the team nor am I am confident in Gaudette progressing as a center.


    Miller Petterson Hoglander

    Podkolzin Horvat Boeser

    Virtanen Madden Gaudette

    Ferland ???? MacEwan


    Hughes Myers

    Juolevi Woo

    Rathbone Trymakin


  14. Good game. Great night. No one can deny their most recent travel schedule in the month of November continues to show its side effects as expected.


    Im curious as to peoples thoughts on what the lineup is going to look like when healthy. I agree with some others that Gaudette is more suited for the winger role and would look good on Horvat's line with Pearson. Whilst Roussel has had chemistry with Bo in the past, I just don't see him as top 6 forward - not saying Pearson is either but believe him to be the better offensive option.


    Im projecting the forward group to look like this


    Miller Petersson Boeser

    Pearson Horvat Gaudette

    Ferland Sutter Virtanen

    Roussel Beagle Leivo




    Eriksson, Schaller can be/should be moved on from. Whilst I like Schaller's game this season, I don't think he takes a spot from Leivo, Roussel, Beagle, Ferland, Sutter or Virtanen. Not much to say about Eriksson that hasn't already been said. He's played well the last few games but the speed, driver and determination just aren't there to be found.

    You can't just name the players we recently drafted and say we "knocked it out of the park" 


    How have we knocked it out of the park with any of those guys outside of the first round?  They haven't proven anything.  Lind and Gadjovich just had terrible first seasons as pros.  Focht, Silovs, Madden, Utenen, Woo, Rathbone are prospects that pretty much every team has right now.  They are all long shots.  


    In 6 years Benning has failed to have a single player outside of the first round come in and make an impact.  


    Demko never plays and Gaudette can't find a role for regular icetime.




    I'm confused about the bolded. What teams have guys that have been discussed as potential 1st rounders in a redraft? Theres a few out there but not every team has them.


    This is Demko's first real and full season as a pro and backup. He will get the games, just be patient. Gaudette cant find a role because there aren't many guys he can replace on this team at this stage. He's a great player and will be a regular for us in the future. However, the way the team has been playing, can you blame them for keeping Gaudette out of the lineup? Did you see that 4th line yesterday against Detroit? Where would you like Gaudette to play? We have Baertschi who is a proven 40 point guy sitting in Utica. There is enough room for 12 forwards on this team. Pettersson, Boeser, Miller, Horvat, Ferland, and Pearson are definitely not going anywhere. There is no reason for Gaudette to play 4th line minutes or take on the role that a 4th line is expected to play. That leaves 3 spots...who you sending down? Sutter? Not likely! Virtanen? Not likely either! Leivo? Possibly! You can continue to swap Leivo and Gaudette as long as you want but eventually Roussel is coming back. If Schaller, Motte, and Beagle play anything like they did against Detroit for the next couple games, I would fully expect Leivo and Gaudette to remain out of the lineup.


    So Gaudette, Demko, Boeser, Pettersson, Hughes, Rathbone, Madden, Woo, DiPietro, Juolevi (wait and see), Trymakin, Podk, Hoglander is a great prospect pool and definite wins for the Canucks. You don't have to draft 1st line players with every pick to consider drafting successful.
