[Proposal] Moving Forward


Skirbs11

Recommended Posts

With the injuries to the back end and deadline coming close i think it is time to move some veteran players out and get younger pieces moving forward, might cost us the playoffs but could pay dividends in the future

First of all not making playoffs gets us a higher first round pick in with we should be able to get another top prospect for our pool

Trade 1

To Vancouver- 2nd round pick

To NY Rangers-Chris Higgins

Basic trade NYR are going to make a playoff run and need some scoring depth we get a 2nd round pick for the price of a rental

Trade 2

To Vancouver-Ryan O'reilly + 2nd round pick

To Colorado- Dan Hamhuis

Colorado rumored to be moving ROR for couple years now Bigger body we miss in our top 6 having an off year, we give up a Solid top 4 Dman that Colorado desperatly needs but have Corrado ready to take over his spot next year

Trade 3

To Vancouver- 3rd round pick

To NYI- Brad Richardson

Bottom 6 player helps them with Faceoffs and PK for the playoffs we move out a aging player and contract and in return get a late 3rd pick

To Vancouver- Josh Morriessey

To Winnipeg- Jannik Hansen+Zach Kassian+ Eddie Lack Colorado's 2nd round pick

Winnipeg Is starting to have a log jam on the Blue line they get a younger forward in Kassian who can change his career around, Hansen adds winger Depth for playoffs as well as 2 picks in a good draft. Canucks get a young Dman with top 4 potential

Salary cap Out-13.55 mil

Salary cap In-7.5

With salary cap space leaves room when F/A comes around to look at other potential trades/pickups

Other potential players we could move: Burrows, Sbisa, Stanton, Weber

Lines Next Season

Sedin-Sedin-Vrbata- Main Scoring Line

Virtanen-Bonino- O'reilly- Secondary scoring with a bit of grit

Mathias-Horvat-Burrows- Good defensive line w/ scoring upside

Kennins-Gaunce-Dorsett- Mix of size/speed/toughness/scoring on good 4th line

Edler-Tanev

Bieksa-Morrissey

Corrado-Sbisa

Stanton/Clendenning

Miller

Markstrom

Most wont agree with the Colorado and Winnipeg Trade they might need tweaking, just looking at outside possibilities to help us get younger

I think every single trade except for the Winnipeg one is actually a decent proposal.

However even with that package for Morrissey, Winnipeg most likely has Morrissey on the untouchables list. He's going to be a stud and to pry him away is going to be tough.

Solid proposals though.

Deal 1 -Yep sounds good

Deal 2 - Yep, Would give us a bit of a log Jam at 3C, as ROR is a natural center. Wouldn't do this deal until the draft. We'd also have to look at moving Bonino after.

Deal 3 - No, I'd Keep richardson for the rest of the year, even though I fully expect him to walk as UFA. You don't always need to get an asset back for a player. He's a key and an important piece piece for this team to help us make the post season.

Deal 4 - Jets have no use for a goalie like Lack, Morrisey is going to be a Jet and will start on the bottom pairing and work himself up. in 2-3 years. who knows where big buff will be. He is UFA at the end of next year

not sure that nyr can just take on another 2.5 million salary

Trade 2

very unlikely that colorado thinks it can make the playoffs

doubt they would be looking to do a trade like this at this time

i think they justifiably think they can create a bidding war for ror

his contract demands are pretty onerous.. not sure how the nucks can meet them without the salary cap going up

Trade 3

To Vancouver- 3rd round pick

To NYI- Brad Richardson

Bottom 6 player helps them with Faceoffs and PK for the playoffs we move out a aging player and contract and in return get a late 3rd pick

no no no . just no

richardson is a rental ufa

why would jersey give up a prospect for him

they can sign him for free in the offseaon or trade a 7th rounder if they want his negotiating rights

they have no hopes of making the playoffs

To Vancouver- Josh Morriessey

To Winnipeg- Jannik Hansen+Zach Kassian+ Eddie Lack Colorado's 2nd round pick

Winnipeg Is starting to have a log jam on the Blue line they get a younger forward in Kassian who can change his career around, Hansen adds winger Depth for playoffs as well as 2 picks in a good draft. Canucks get a young Dman with top 4 potential

no idea about this one but i don't think we'd have colorado's 2nd to trade

and as previous poster said.. likely a player jets will not trade

this offer does not blow anyone's socks off

the players being offered from vancouver are middling players at best.. no top 6, and only an unproven back up goalie

it is unlikely jets have 3 roster spots available to accommodate all these bodies coming from vancouver either

the Richardson Trade was for NYI not New Jersey, Not that it probably makes a difference in your opinion, but NYI is most likely to make the playoffs and dont really have any playoff experience vets up front and as a trade deadline Rental when it comes to what he would offer in terms of Leadership, faceoffs, PK and consistency i can see a 3rd pick in return after some deadline deals over the years

Honestly you've offered pretty good value on most trades I'd say.

That being said though, we're second in the pacific and we aren't sellers.

Thanks, I agree we aren't sellers ATM but with injuries on the blue line if we do go into a slump over the next few games we will not have a playoff spot, and if it came down to it might be worth it to cash in on some players, or at the latest make some draft deals
