[Proposal] Samuelsson at Deadline


Recommended Posts

EDIT: I guess you can lock this since a similar thread was made like 5 minutes prior to mine.

I was sitting and thinking about this for a little while, but with the new CBA would we be able to make a deal to acquire Samuelsson at the deadline assuming we're in a playoff spot and Detroit isn't? I'm not completely sure how the salary retention and things of that matter work, but he's a component this club sorely misses. Use him as a powerplay specialist and give him offensive zone starts with our second line. He has PROVEN chemistry with both the Sedin's and Kesler. I think we could get him for dirt cheap as well.

I've posted this before a few times.

Detroit is desperate to clear roster space to start bringing up younger guys, waiving Tootoo eaves etc. Samuelsson could be had for cheap I would think, but he's been very injured recently and is much older and road weary than 2011.

We already have a Booth

It would be at the deadline and he's a UFA at the end of the year. So I'm not really worried about his contract weighing us down too much. He'd be a powerplay specialist and used mainly in offensive roles.

What is with Canuck fans that always want to turn back the clock?

If we could only get Samuelsson back, that'd be great. We could use Salo on the point. Wouldn't Grabner look good on the 2nd line?

Volpatti would be great on the 4th line. Lets get Torres back, etc, etc...

Yeah, I always find this funny too.

But I am also guilty of it. I'd love Bert to come back for one more time in Vancouver.

Chemistry? He'd be a hell of a lot better than the second liners we have now. I think the better question is for what reason are you against getting Samuelsson for virtually one playoff run? He'd be gone at the end of the year...

In my proposal its not about turning the clock back, its a matter of team needs. we need to dump Booths cap hit and Detroit would probably be a great place he can re unite with weiss and he can try to regain some of his form from his panther days.
