Recommended Posts

To Detroit:

Alex Edler (Retain 1mil salary for the first year)

Conditional Van 2015 2nd round pick (If Edler averages less than 0.45 ppg)

To Van:

Anthony Mantha

Det 2014 1st Round draft pick

Detroit get's to stabalize their D and have been after Edler for a while.

Vancouver gets a top offensive prospect, and a top 20 draft pick in the upcoming draft.

Forward Prospect Pool:

Virtanen-Ho-Sang-Mantha

Shinkaruk-Horvat-Kassian

Fox-Schroeder-Jensen

That's depth and a future. Fox, Gaunce, and Shinkaruk all go to Utica next year. Our prospect pool goes from bottom 5 to arguably top 5 in a span of years. Use the later picks to draft D.

Ya Ho-Sang is toxic, he's widely reported to have an attitude problem. All the skill in the world but he won't use his teammates.

I like the idea of getting Mantha for Edler, it was reported that Van had asked for that first from Det on top of the offer of Tatar/Smith but Det declined. They might be high on Mantha. We could however get his brother this upcoming draft with a 2nd or 3rd.

Regardless I support the idea of a rebuild and getting younger.

cant retain a portion of one year of salary. You either retain some for the remaining contract or none at all.

^ This.

Well, and that we have to give up a 2nd round pick if Edler can't hit 37 points over 82 games. Really? All that for one prospect that looks pretty good before he's even played an NHL game and 1st that might be worse than our own.

I dont think Mantha would be ready to step in next year. I would want him to spend a year in Utica.

I am ok with the detroit trade, because I am very high on Mantha but I dont like drafting ho sang either, I would even rather Fabbri over him , lots of other options I would want over hooooo sang tho.
