2013/14 roster - after buyouts trades and signings

Recommended Posts

Obviously the Canucks can go into a lot of different directions but imo they must get rid of Luongo, Ballard and Booth! this way they free up a lot of cap space.

If you can trade Booth and or Ballard then great but realistly i think you have to buy them out.

buyout Ballard, Booth

I think it would be in the Canucks best interest to trade Edler because of the youth he could bring back and the Canucks could always sign another ufa defensemen.

Edler to PHI for Couturier and their 2'rd rd pick

Luongo to NYI for Niederreiter

let Raymond, Roy, Lapierre, Malhotra & barker walk

sign UFA's

Streit -6.0



The Canuck obviously won't look like this but I think this would be a very impressive offseason.

I will consider it a succesful off season if the Canucks trade Lu, buyout ballard and booth because then they will be making a=changes and free up a lot of cap space.

I also really think it would be a good idea to trade elder because the assets and youth he could bring in. He makes a lot of mistakes and could be replaced with the cap space he frees up by a ufa. so you get a replacement plus assets in a trade.

with Ballard. Booth, Lu and Edler gone thats 18.78 million in cap space!

Nino > Raymond

Cout > Roy

Ryder > Booth

Hendricks > Lapierre

Streit = Edler

Schneids > Lu

plus a phi 2'nd rd

for the most part your getting younger by adding a 2'nd Cout & Nino, and in other ares your just getting better for example Ryder over booth.

what do you think?

the fact that people think ryder will fix a team bothers me, i know ryder very well i have season tickets to the habs and when ryder is not scoring he is the most useless player in the nhl, he is one dimensional.

I rather have lapierre then hendricks any day as well. People dont realize how much they will miss lapierre intill he is actually gone.

Comparing Hendricks to Lapierre

Lapierre much more offensively gifted

Lapierre hits twice as much as hendricks

Lapierre has out scored hendricks in nearl every year of his career despite playing with guys such as tom sestito

Lapierre fights just as much as well and is much faster and responsible,

Comparing Ryder to Booth

Booth is physical,can fight, hit and score

Ryder is one dimensional and all he can do is shoot the puck

Comparing Roy to Couturier

Roy is much better offensively and has experience

Couturier is big inconsistent and unproven

Comparing Raymond to NinoRaymond is hands down more talented, however he is inconsisten

Nino is unproven and a complainer.

Comparing Streit to Edler

Streit is washed up when Edler has potential to be elite.

if the auilinni's don't want to buy anyone out then they are not as serious about winning as they and management have stated, the only problem i have withy lappy is he takes a few too many penalties and i have been a fan of his all the way but also in the playoffs he didn't look nearly as good as expected this year maybe another option for 4'th line centre would be best.
