J.I.A.H.N Posted April 14, 2015 Share Posted April 14, 2015 Well first off, I sure wish I could cut and paste, but my Lap Top hates me! And the answer to the question is not much! Since June 30, 2013 the following trades have been done with only a 2nd round pick. Tyler Kennedy, 2013 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 2013 2nd and 3rd, 2013 3rd, 4th, and 5th, 2013 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2013 3rd and 4th, Devin Setoguchi, David Runblad and Mat Brisebois, Reto Berra, Linden Vey (I high lighted every second trade, just for ease of reading) Anyways, I just figured I would go back and check and see what will a 2nd get you, and for the most part not much. Even our most current 2nd Rounder (Baertschi) was basically given to us because Calgary had given up on him. So when we start talking about trading some of our Canucks....think bigger in my opinion.......I read a lot of posts that infer that our guys are not worth anything, and I have to say, even our 3rd and 4th line players have value. After looking at what has been given for a 2nd, I have a little trouble giving away our players....players like Burrows, Higgins, Hansen, Bieska, are all worth 2nds. Which really underlines the value of greater valued players such as Miller, Hamhuis, Lack, Kassian, etc. Where Firsts and combinations of 1st + 2nd's and 2-2nds etc should be considered. This is post is not about trades, but rather values. Take note that Linden Vey, could not break LA's line up, and was worth a 2nd, now that he has played in the NHL as a rookie and scored 10+ goals, he should still be worth a 2nd...... My point is people have to stop under valuing our players, or even other NHL players for that matter, as 2nd's have not played in the NHL and likely won't.....the player has of coarse, have! Just saying! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
