(Proposal) Bonino + Vrbata to Washington

Recommended Posts

To Vancouver:



22 OA

Washington gets an upgrade at C with a younger, cheaper, and more productive Bonino who could really help to balance out all that skill on the wing and could potentially play in the middle 6 depending on how their more offensive minded centerman are performing. They land that scoring RW that theyre in the market for wholl give them yet another weapon and pick up a dman in Weber whom may be able to soften the loss of Green with his offensive ability.

Vancouver takes a significant contract dump in Laich to land their pirze, but a veteran C that can help plug up the bottom 6 C position while their prospect C's develop. They land a significant RHD prospect in Madison Bowey who projects as a physical and well rounded top pair dman, and another 1st round pick which would give them back to back selections in the 1st round. The move significantly cripples Vancouvers scoring prowess for next season, but creates some space for them to add a couple more NHL ready prospects to the roster (Gaunce, Grenier, Virtanen, Cassels). It would likely also improve their chances of landing a top 2016 draft pick as they turn over their franchise.

Not sure if the Canucks are ready to make a move like this, and also doubt the Caps would move Bowey, but taking a cap dump like that and addressing a couple significant needs in their win now lineup may entice the notion.

Caps projected roster:

Ovi - Backstrom - Brouwer

Johansson - Kuznetsov - Vrbata

Burakovski - Bonino - Wilson

? - Latta - Chimera

Orpik - Carlsson

Alzner - Niskanen

Orlov - Weber

Nux depth chart before other offseason moves:

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows

Baertschi - Horvat - Kassian

Higgins - Vey - Hansen

Dorsett - Laich - Virtanen

Kenins - Gaunce - Grenier

Edler - Tanev

Hamhuis - Bowey (alnost made Caps last season. Hes ready imo.)

Sbisa - Bieksa




Draft Zboril and Boeser

Value wise I think you've made a good proposal. That being said this is not the direction I'd want the team to go.

It would work better for the caps imo. Makes them that much of a bigger cup threat.

I'd rather us remain a cup threat than give away such valuable pieces
