  1. Think the cap will be bloated for the entirety of the term. I just don't see him being a 8+ million dollar player.
  2. I believe the case is that if a player from team a is lost to waivers due to team b putting in a claim, team a will have first dibs if team b later decides to put the same player back on waivers. At that point the player can be assigned to team a farm team without having to go through the waiver process for a third time. Perhaps there is a time limitation and I believe it is within the same season. I tried to find a source for this but I am hoping I am not just making this up from thin air.
  3. Pretty sure he ends up on waivers again, Canucks will just re-claim and can then assign him directly to Abottsford. A nice little vacation in California
  4. 2-way contracts don't have anything to do with waiver eligibility. This isn't NHL 21. Besides, Gadj has a 2-way.
  5. Not gonna get into an argument with you over this but strangling a puppy is objectively worse in your opinion than what he did to that girl? He has likely ruined a womens life. Deserves every thing coming to him.
  6. In my mind this would make Montreal the winners of this transaction. If they end up getting Dvorak with the compensation they get from Carolina they have upgraded at that position. I don't think Kotkaniemi will surpass the level of Dvorak. Carolina 1st and Ryan Poehling for Christian Dvorak. Wonder if that would seal the deal or if Montreal would have to add. Dvorak signed to the deal Kotkaniemi probably gets next summer and Dvorak is a great fit for the Habs.
  7. Canucks, Philly and Chicago. Don't believe LA did enough to warrant a nomination. Philly probably improved the most.
  8. Myers has to go. Can't be paying a guy 6 million to not play in the top 4. Also much rather the team rid themselves of him over JT. Would clear up room for Bo and JT down the line.
  9. I am used to this so I don't really care. It was inevitable.
  10. Plenty of room for both Petey and Quinn. I like the term and the cap hit. Well done.
  11. Tatar has been scratched in the playoffs by his last two coaches on his last two teams. I think there are a lot of question marks yet for the Devils.
  12. If I was a Rangers fan I would be embarassed by the direction the team is deciding to go and what the catalyst behind this change in direction was. You let one player change the future of your entire franchise and he isn't even in your organization.
  13. Schmidt plays the right side and is better than all three of Edmundsson, Chiarot and Romanov. It does make sense and the rumors are out there for a reason. I would take Montreals 3rd 21 and 2nd 22. I think both teams would be happy with that. Schmidt is a great fit in Montreal.
  14. The value of that 9th pick, at least from a Canucks perspective, just went way down. Loving this deal. I am so stoked. This off-season so far has been very good. Love Dickinson. Love Garland. Hoping OEL has some sort of resurgence as well and gut feeling says he will. Dickinson and Garland are two really hard-nosed, push-back type of players. Lot's of hyphons for Ekman-Larsson
  15. Jarmo is really kicking a** today. Great trade. The return on Jones and avoiding that HUGE contract was another win. He got 3 first rounders and a 2nd round pick. As of now, the 22 1st has no condition. You know it's gonna be a lottery pick. Edit: Counting Boqvist as a 1st rounder. I mean Bean was a 1st rounder as well right? Jarmo and Jim winning the day so far!
  16. I know some of you have probably made the 9th for Reinhart a somewhat reality in your minds. I really feel that Garland is a much better fit for our team than Reinhart would have been.
  17. Been hearing a lot of people saying that whoever signs Seth Jones to a huge contract will live to regret it. I like the player though.
  18. From very scared to very pleased. I think this will be a very good move for us. Reminders for everyone: OEL contract expires when he turns 36 and reported caphit of 7 mil (reported). Garland is nasty and is a huge add for the top 6. I really really like this.
  19. It has got to be some retained salary on OEL. I am more than okay with this if that is the case. An OEL at around 6 mil is a thumbs up from me. Trade Schmidt for picks.
  20. In my mind I am hoping JB and the rest have a similar mindset as I do towards this next year. Fix some of the things you are able to now and be patient. We have a lot of cap coming off after next season so I don't really think it makes sense to get rid off Schmidt already. Unless he actually wants out. It just makes sense trading him later on if they feel he isn't a long-term solution. I am hoping the Dickinson trade is an indication of the type of moves the Canucks are willing to make this off-season. Smart, cheap moves. Wait the cap issues out and we are going to be set-up to make some. Moving Hughes over to the right side is something that I don't think is talked about enough. He, like Schmidt, can play the right side.
