  1. [proposal] Vancouver Canucks and Anaheim Ducks - 2021 1st for Hampus Lindholm (sign and trade) To Anaheim: 2021 1st To Vancouver: Hampus Lindholm (signed by Anaheim before being traded to Vancouver) I’m assuming that Vancouver might have to add a little here but I don’t know. Anaheim does this because: They are rebuilding and would likely get a top 5 draft pick with Vancouver’s 1st. Hampus Lindholm likely won’t sign with Anaheim after July 1st 2022 anyways. Vancouver does this because: The Canucks need a long term top pai
  2. Fair enough but I think the trade would fit both teams quite well. -We would have three great centers to fit “the modern approach.” -We would have our elite top pairing. Our version of Keith and Seabrook. IF Eichel is healthy, he’s in the same tier as Draisaitl, Mackinnon, Matthews, and Barkov. Dude’s a top 5 center in the NHL -if healthy- (although I do not know the extent of his herniated discs injury).
  3. [proposal] Canucks and Sabres: The "full blown" Eichel, Dahlin, and Reinhart to Vancouver edition. :-) To Buffalo: -Pettersson -Hughes -Podkolzin To Vancouver: -Eichel -Dahlin -Reinhart Why Buffalo does this: Complete culture change. The Sabres need a major blow up and major culture change, and they need to do it in such a way where they get close to full value in return. Hughes and Petey can be signed long term to 7 year deals. While Petey and Quinn likely won't get 7 year deals from Vancouver this summer
  4. In that case, I do apologize. Sounds like you’ve had a very interesting and successful career. While I still think Gorton belongs on a farm as a designated bull milker, it’s probably best that we agree to disagree with regards to Benning’s approach. Cheers.
  5. I deal with players, coaches, agents, executives, and nhl insiders all the time and talk a lot of hockey with them. Response: LOL. Thanks for the laughs kid. Anyways, we can slice it anyway we want but here are the facts: 1) Your “Boi” in New York has missed the playoffs 4 years in a row. While this can definitely change, we cannot call Gorton’s rebuilding model a success until that the Rangers actually make the playoffs and do something of significance. 2) You can bash Benning all you want, but his team took out the cup champs last season and got within
  6. 1) No one said Vancouver is a hard place to sign UFA’s but it does not compare to the allure of Manhattan. Not even close. Anonymity + easier travel schedule + generally regarded as the best nightlife in the world or top 3-5. 2) As has been proven, players will sign with Vancouver if there is a perception that they are trending upwards. Myers, Ferland, Holtby, Ryan Miller, Vrbata, etc., are all examples. 3) Guys like Sutter, Eriksson, Beagle, Roussel, Gudbranson, Baertschi, etc., were brought in here to insulate the youth while the youth were still developing. It’s n
  7. Great! But like Don Cherry once said, “if my aunt had nuts she’d be my uncle.” Hence, the uselessness and irrelevancy of 3rd conditional statements in the hockey world (ie If the Rags played in x division, etc,). And yes, I still stand by my comments. NYR is a completely different market than Vancouver and so attracting high ticket UFA’s is often a much easier task (which then often it makes far easier for the Rangers to engage in aggressive “blow up” strategies since they’d likely have many suitors on any July 1st). Panarin is an an example of this. https://www.capfriendly.co
  8. Why would anyone celebrate Gordon’s success when the Rangers make the playoffs next year? Good question. As for the rest of your post, we will have to agree to disagree, but Benning got us to the 2nd round last year.....a game away from the 3rd round actually. While it’s entirely possible that the Rangers achieve that as well next season (ie 2nd round game 7 appearance after their last playoff appearance 5 years ago), we can’t state that “Gorton is better than Benning,” or “Gorton has rebuilt the Rangers better than Benning has rebuilt the Canucks.” The results say ot
  9. They’ve missed the playoffs for four straight years! That was my point. We can celebrate Gorton’s success once the Rangers actually make the playoffs and do something of significance, but until that time is reached, we can’t say anything.
  10. My take is that the Rangers haven’t made the playoffs even one time since Jeff Gorton was hired by the Rangers in 2015-2016. [edit] - my mistake this isn’t quite true....although the Rags have missed the playoffs four seasons in a row now. New York City is a completely different market than Vancouver and attracting UFA’s is infinitely easier than it is for Vancouver. This is one reason why it’s much easier for NYR to “blow it up” and have a line up full of stars a year later (which the Rangers have pretty much done...........which also goes to illustrate that there is
  11. Whom, are we "buying" with with all this found money, and why is selling out cheap young options going to improve things long term by freeing up money for one year? We've made it this far, the team knows they are better then this, most of the games we've lost we've been in since Covid ... Response: I am of the opinion that our two biggest needs is a good two way 3rd line center with decent playmaking skills + a defensive-minded top 4 quality dman that can complement one of Hughes or Schmidt. There are lots of options to pursue here with 12 million in freed up cap space. A
  12. [proposal] Canucks and Sabres - NOT Eichel, Dahlin, or Ristolainen related I’m just thinking out loud here. No idea if this would be fair value or not. To Buffalo: Eriksson + Rathbone + 2021 1st To Vancouver: Sam Reinhart Miller-Pettersson-Boeser Hoglander-Reinhart-Podkolzin Pearson-Horvat-Lind Motte-Graovich-Highmore ####-Schmidt Hughes-Hamonic Juolevi-Myers Demko Holtby I don’t know about you guys, but that’s a really good forward group up there. If the Canucks could somehow add a top p
  13. I’m just thinking out loud here. No idea if this would be fair value or not. To Buffalo: Eriksson + Rathbone + 2021 1st To Vancouver: Sam Reinhart Miller-Pettersson-Boeser Hoglander-Reinhart-Virtanen Pearson-Horvat-Podkolzin Motte-Graovich-Highmore ####-Schmidt Hughes-Hamonic Juolevi-Myers Demko Holtby I don’t know about you guys, but that’s a really good forward group up there. If the Canucks could somehow add a top pairing dman to the above line-up, we’d be up there with the top teams imo.
  14. Just a thought, Sam Reinhart also wants out of Buffalo and he’d be a LOT cheaper than Eichel.
  15. Eichel and Petey as a 1-2 punch would immediately put us on the map. We’d be in the same conversation as Toronto, Edmonton, Pittsburgh, and Tampa Bay go as far as 1-2 punch combos down the middle go. More importantly however, is the perception that it would create amongst UFA’s. With Eichel and Petey up the middle, high ticket UFA’s would likely have Vancouver at or near the top or their priority lists. Horvat + 1st = me driving Bo to the airport myself. A core centered around Eichel, Pettersson, Hughes, Boeser, and Demko would be 90’s Detroit and 10’s Chicago lev
