shanghai owey Posted June 9, 2015 Share Posted June 9, 2015 First Trade: Lack, Kassian, Gaunce to Edm for 16th and 3rd round pick Why Edmonton does this: They have more skill than imaginable at the moment with the likes of Connor Mcdavid heading there way. Mcdavid, hall, eberle, Nuge are not all big guys that can stick up for themselves. Adding Kassian to the mix to play with these skilled players will give them intimidation and toughness on the wing to help protect their young talent who playing with these supreme set up players could actually perform well as a top 6 winger. Lack is 27, younger than other ufa goalies out there and better than there current goalies. Edmonton has to turn around things asap and start doing what is necessary to to create a winning environment for their players and prospects. Gaunce would serve as a grit bottom 6 forward, able to do the little things right and serve valuable. Second Trade: Bieska for highest pick possible Love the guy but his cap hit is too high for his production and his age, and can be a too big of a liability in the playoffs whereas Hamhuis is still a top 4 defenceman. Either combine picks to move up (23rd and 16) or keep them. - Prob keep them Draft Dmen and or if top forward is still available. Would be nice if Werenski fell to 16th. Try to sign Frolik, Stewart, Franson, McQuaid while offloading appropriate contracts (Burrows, Higgins, Not resigning Matthias, mabe Sbisa) Daniel-Hank-Vrbata Frolik-Bonino-Stewart Baertschi-Horvat-Hansen Dorsett-vey(or Richardson)-Kennins Edler-Tanev Hamhuis-Franson McQuaid-Weber (or Sbisa) *If can't sign one of Stewart or Frolik keep Burrows on the second line with them. *This lineup gets them younger, Second line more dangerous, More physicallity, and likely faster. *Each second line player is capable of scoring 20 goals. *Franson BC boy, 6'5, can be offensive, and dynamite on powerplay. *For Free agents Vancouver has an edge being a great city with great hockey market *Mcquaid and Stewart are both Forces on the ice and able to stand up for teammates, making Canucks tougher to play against. Imagine first round against Calgary with these 2 players. *Frolik offensively creative and played I believe on top line with Scheifle in Winnipeg, can play both left and right wing. *Can try mixing Stewart with Sedins. *Don't see a weakness in any of our lines including McQuaid and Weber who could be a great ying and yang Duo together. *Horvat Hansen and Baertschi I think would also be a great up-tempo line together, capable of shutting down and scoring. *Second Powerplay Unit also likely now to perform better.
