[Rumour] Canucks Close to Another Deal?


Recommended Posts

Botchford just posted this in his Jan 30 edition of the provies. Let the speculation begin:


Word has been burning all week, the Canucks are close to another deal.

Sir Bennington got a huge smile talking about it.

“We’ll see,” he said.


Top six scoring would be nice. We don't really have a whole lot of disposable assets though. The usual suspects as trade bait: Lack, Kassian , one of our D?

If source isn't sufficient then lock please, it is Botchford after all but I thought it would make for some interesting discussion.

Taj1944 is a decent source for all things Canucks, he's called some things before. He made this tweet before Botchford's Provies. Make of it what you will..

People won't even remember this trade once the next one goes down. Which should be sooner than later. #loggingoffagain

Nashville's feeling the heat on their mustard-butts. They've been out of the dance for a while; then Rinne drops like he did all last year.

Chi & StL picking up steam-they can't let such an opportunity pass!

So they'll deal for a Lack-pack(age).

We'll get one of their nice D, & a 2015 1st.

There's one guess...

Nashville would be a great trade partner. Theyre a team thats in a good playoff postion, but Rinne just got injured. Hopefully Benning could take advantage of that and make a Lack+ for Ekholm. Another possible route is trading Sbisa to Flames or Colorado (at the deadline) for some picks.

Amazing how deals can get done when you have assets and the rest of the gm's are willing to work with you because you are not a pompous and egotistical douche of a GM...

Would not be suprised in the least bit if there is more coming either now or for sure in the summer. Goalie will be involved Lack or Markstrom.

Might also be trading away draftpicks or a prospect to get a young player who is NHL ready or very close and is buried down the depth chart and needs a legit opportunity to play like Clendening.

I don't see anything big coming.

He said he won't move any of the A guys. They've said Edler's untouchable. Hamhuis, the sedins, vrbata are PRACTICALLY untouchable. 1st isn't available. Lack and middling veterans + 3rd/4th's won't be getting Crosby @ warhippy.

I'm reserved on the possibility of Tanev for ROR but don't see it happening because reality.
