Get Suter As An Unrestricted. Not Possible? 3 Plugs For Sale.


Recommended Posts

Booth played well for about 3 mins in the playoffs, in his first shift and maybe that one with the sedins in game 4.

4.2 million? It seemed like a good deal at the time but hes not worth the money. 0 goals in 5 playoff games. Raymond, I defended him till halfway this season but hes someone we should look at trading if we cant get him for 2.5 again. He isnt worth more then that until he does something in the playoffs.

Ballard played ok in playoffs but if someone can take him and we can get Suter for 6x6 years dont hesitate Gillis , just like you didnt Hesitate to trade Hodgson for a raw rookie who wont be ready for top line minutes for 3 years, and a plug dman that belongs in a roller hockey league.

Kesler isnt to blame aside from him being an idiot. Coming back to early from surgery. Should have taken 2 more weeks... hindsight I guess , but I saw this coming.

This isnt AV's fault its Gillis's more then anyone else's. If they trade Lu or Shnieds they better not get fleeced again, our time is in the next 3 years then we are gonna get killed by oilers.

That is really all our team was missing the last two years. That one minute muncher who will be in every situation for you. Hamhuis is as close to that as we have.

Also we need to look at our bottom 6. It might need revamping. Players who will consistently be in the lineup lol. I hate the revolving door of wingers besides hansen who has really been the only guy to stay in that same 3rd line RW spot.

I'll buy in to this assuming Tanev puts on 10 to 15 lbs of good weight over summer.

Smashing third pair; unparalleled in the league...

Hamhuis Suter

Edler Tanev

Salo Bieksa

Connauton, Alberts

That's my dream D-core for next season.

Our defence needs to be bigger, more physical and better defensively.

Firstly, Tanev is NOT NHL ready, no matter how many games he gets given. He was exploited a few times in the playoffs and his age is showing, plus this guy is tiny and never hits anyone. Meanwhile we have Rome who is eager to throw borderline hits, and Andrew freakin Alberts who is the only Canuck big and mean enough to scare forwards away. If anyone was going to contain the King's big forwards, it would have been Alberts but AV decides to scratch him.

Sami Salo is also getting older and not useful when he plays 20 minutes a game. I want to see something like this next season:

Edler - top-3 defenceman

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Salo - Alberts/shutdown guy

As unhappy I am with Bieksa, he has a NTC and won't be gone, but we need more bigger, physical defenceman. In the perfect world, Ballard gets traded and we pick up a defensive specialist, but most importantly we need a big, physical shutdown guy to play with Edler. Basically another Hamhuis but bigger, which is rare, but we have the best comoditiy in the league in Schneider.

Unfortunately, MG will probably sit on his hands, thinking his defence is good enough (when in fact it was victimized by the league's 2nd worst offence and down-right embarassed) because our goalies stole the show in the playoffs and down the stretch, so here's what we'll see on openning night.

Edler - Ballard

Bieksa - Hamhuis

Salo - Tanev

They need a number 1 dman I dont care if it costs 7 per . I want a damn cup. They can make it happen, or else go for Stewart from detriot. Our dmen couldnt get it done , even if they scores in the series are leading you to think otherwise.

I'm so not interested in seeing Salo back next year. I'm big fan of his but he doesn't look like he's got much left in the tank. We need some more size in the back with a right handed shot that can replace his. A Shea Weber would be nice but I think he's out of the price range but something like that.

Dmen can't really play well when they're out of position. If you think about which side of D they play, getting Suter would be more like:

Suter Bieksa

Hamhuis Tanev

Edler Salo

Alberts Connauton

Getting a right side D is better - which is why people are screaming Weber every offseason. Because he would be PERFECT.

From what I am reading around the league, there are a bunch of teams targeting Suter. Even more teams will be looking to improve their defense (4 defensive teams made it through in the west) making Suter even more desirable.

I just don't see him coming here. Red Wings is my bet. Anyone have a good reason for why Suter would come here?

Sutter will be in Detriot duh! A solid temporary Dman that could play with Edler until Gills makes the splash for Weber he seems to be waiting for.

Hamhuis- Bieska

Edler- Salo

Connauton-Tanev Tanev can also play with Edler some to keep Salo rested

Alberts and Rome untill Gilis can get Weber in free agency seems to be the plan otherwise he would of done something this year and that's even if Weber wants to come here?

The only way we will be able to go after Suter(if he wants to play here) is if we trade Luongo $5.3M and Raymond $2.5M in order to free up cap space.

Trade Ballard $4.5M and Rome $1M and Booth ($??) and go after Nash. Promote from within to provide depth for Ballard and Rome.
