[Proposal] VAN-SJS

Recommended Posts


Jacob Markstrom

Linden Vey

Chris Higgins


2nd Rd. Pick, 2015

Patrick Marleau (20% Ret.)

Emil Galimov

Also, in this scenario, we'd be signing Matt O'Connor.

I know Markstrom and Vey are RFAs (who have more value than pending UFAs), but that doesn't mean they aren't valuable. Especially for a team apparently ridding themselves of starter Antti Niemi and needs a bit of a change-up in the locker room. In comes Higgins as well, whose abs, beard, and bright smile can turn around nearly any dark situation.

On the Canucks side, we rid ourselves of another goalie controversy, as well as recouping a pick and picking up some middle 6 scoring, and a 7th rounder who is low risk, decent-to-high reward.

Let's say Vey can somehow recoup the 2nd round pick we paid for him and that's somewhat equivalent value for SJ

that would mean that you're saying markstrom + higgins = marleau and galimov?

SJ would easily pull an Iginla type package for Marleau if they wanted to move him.

Jumbo could be to this group what Sundin was for the old guys

but seriously, there is only 1 top 6 centre on this team and they are crappy at face offs.....what could this guy show Bo?

Face-off skills.

But as long as he doesn't score more than three goals, I guess...

I just don't want him to be another Messier.

For Marleau is a better deal. Salary wise it's really good.

Not really. I'd rather keep our youth and starting goaltender rather than an aging winger with a couple seasons left at most.
