  1. Isn't everyone on Arizona available? I'm sure they would take a few of Montreal's draft picks in order to rebuild and get rid of some of their veterans. Or they could package Domi or Drouin to get a legit #1 centre and then go after Taylor Hall as a UFA...
  2. Vancouver would never trade Petey straight up for Eichel. In 2 years Petey will also be getting 100 points with Miller/Boeser/Toffoli. He is also a good 200’ player who will only get better. In 2 years Petey could be better then Eichel so Vancouver would never do the trade. Plus Petey already has chemistry with everyone on the team, so no reason to break that chemistry. Eichel is a great player but Petey in 2 years will also be a great player. And Petey will most likely be on a more team friendly contract for several more years so we can build up this team with the extra cap space. I would say the same with Hughes. I wouldn’t trade him straight up for Dahlin. For a lot of the same reasons.
  3. Yeah I agree. And it's Pettersson not Peterson. But you can call me Petey...
  4. I think Detroit would take a run at him. They got pretty much nothing on the back end and millions in cap space. They could take a run at Markstrom as well. They can pair Krug with Seider and they would have a nice top pairing. Add Markstrom and they could actually have a decent team. They also have a million draft picks over the next two years so they could have alot of ELC players in their lineup which would allow them to acquire some pieces in free agency.
  5. They don't have the cap space to make a trade for a $10 million player. They are better off drafting Lafreniere and having him on a cheap ELC for 3 years so they can add other pieces. With Lafreniere they will have a great young core similar to Vancouver.

  7. I hear that Tampa may have a difficult time re-signing Sergachev. They have only $5 million in cap space and 15 players under contract for next year. I wonder if Benning could do a re-do of the 2016 draft and trade Juolevi for Sergachev. Tampa would save millions and they could re-sign Cernak with the added cap space. Throw in a draft pick or prospect to close the deal. Imagine Sergachev and Tryamkin playing together with Podkolzin up front. One can dream, but if you dream it is better to dream big...
  8. No we don't know his ceiling yet, that is true. But at 24 there is not much time left. That's why he could be a great trade piece as other teams are asking the same question. Maybe Jake will have the same luck with Boston as Neely did. Maybe they are in love with him. Maybe they will trade Brandon Carlo for him. Maybe...
  9. Agreed. Now I understand the woosh. It went over my head the first time which is why I was confused. Cheers...
  10. Just trying to understand your points and have an actual conversation with you. Not sure what the strawman thing is about but I agree with you it's best not to waste anymore time on this...
  11. I see, so your point is Neely was just an average player his first three years as compared to his peers and then "broke out" afterwards into one of the greatest power forwards in history. So your thinking is Jake has that potential as well? Or at the very least the potential to be a top 6 player with 30 goal possibility? I'm not a psychic so I can't predict the future. All I know is what I can see today. Cam Neely broke out after his 3rd season, but he was only 21 at the time as he played for Vancouver right after he was drafted. Jake has been playing in the NHL for 5 years now and is 24. Neely was already at the top of his game at age 24, he was the best power forward in the game. Jake at 24 is still a 3rd line winger with "potential". Again, I don't see any comparisons between the two at any age to be honest. Two totally different careers. My prediction is that Jake will continue to be a good 3rd line winger who can step into a top 6 role when needed. I don't think his future is with Vancouver though. I think the best thing for his career is to start fresh somewhere else and the hope is that another team sees that raw potential in him which will allow us to get a much needed right handed Dman in return.
  12. I think Kole Lind is going to be a player. Not sure it will happen next year but I think he can be a very good 3rd line right winger who can be a pest, play a 200' game and contribute offensively. He can also take draws and is a good set up man so he would be similar to Miller in that he can plug in at centre when need be. I think Virtanen can get us someone better than Stecher or Fatenberg. Like you said he is a legit 3rd line winger who can play in the top six when needed, but his time in Vancouver has run out I think. At 24 I don't think there will much more improvement from him, what you see now is what you are going to get and like you said he may be able to up his game if he left town and went to a different city. There are teams that may want to take a gamble on Jake and see if he can turn into that top 6 power forward. So getting a defenceman back for him that can play with Hughes is a possibility, even if we have to add to that trade.
