  1. Did try to highlight that Landon Bow and Adin Hill were available to teams that needed to meet the requirements: and they still are: I am open to negotiating now for trades to happen after the season for those clubs in need. Adding Michael McNiven to the lot as well. Bow and McNiven will need you to resign them, Hill has not only a good path to NHL success, as he has just started for a month in Arizona who had injuries in the paint, but he also has tenure: he is not a dump, he is an asset, but one I am willing to listen on.
  2. Thanks for that, i was aware from checking the CBA this morning, so I have noted those two players may only come up next tuesday morning, if i wish to bring them up, or thereafter of course. THanks for the shuffling. Now to sit back and hope for points to flow forth.

  10. Absolutely love Wyatt Kaisers defensive play and promise of two way potential, he was our 'deep gem' from the draft and he has been adding stock every since draft day. Was a pleasure to select him in the entry draft, and a very good nod to his abilities that he was traded in a hockey trade for incoming Finn Erik Haula! Loading up a titch to try to make that push. Sisu ftw. Thank you to Arizona's capable GM Gally for good talks that worked out well for both of us.
  11. Assignment: The Vancouver Canucks assign Jack Kopacka to the minor league, making room for incoming trade.
  12. Thanks to Robert and Phil, I really enjoy what you guys bring night in and night out, the league would not be as great without players like you guys. We had to move some bodies though to acquire Jordan who we need to have at the table if we are going to catch, which is the goal. Thanks to Inane, good talks, and fruitful for both sides. Cheers
  13. Assignment: The Vancouver Canucks assign Alexandre Carrier to the minors Activation: The Vancouver Canucks activate Robert Hagg from IR.
  14. This was a tough deal to agree to, frankly we like all three guys involved to a high degree. Sad to say goodbye to Jujhar, a real value player with skills, but we are at the same time thrilled to say hello again to Jimmy Vesey, a player we lost in a deal we could not say no to some time ago. Jakov Novak is doing great work in the NCAA, in his final year he is a point per gamer who has elevated his complete package in the years since his draft. I am confident both sides got what they were after in this deal, thanks Rush for good talks and ultimately a successful deal.
  15. has the potential to be harry when we consider all the possibilities right now, but I imagine the picture will be very much clearer by then for every team. Like how many teams will have 23 playoff players PLUS 3 or 4 people who are on teams still playing regular season games? If that is the way the league handles things, which is unlikely anyhow. My guess is at most there will be one or two players which could swap in for 1 or 2 other players: and IMO that is easily handled at the pickup retroactive lineup change function. Easy peasy.
