[Proposal] VAN-WAS

Recommended Posts

Just an idea if Bieksa is to be moved.

WAS: Bieksa, maybe + a little?
VAN: Brouwer

For WAS - If they lose Mike Green to free agency, a veteran D to replace him on the right side may appeal to a Trotz coached team. 1 yr remaining, cap hit $4.6, salary $2.5.

For VAN - Brouwer is a RW but is very good on special team FOs. 56.9% in the dot last season. [This would allow VAN to develop young C like Vey, etc... to take ES FOs but not rely on them for special team FOs]. Also gives VAN another right shot on the PP (8 PP goals last season). 1 yr remaining, cap hit $3.667, salary $3.75. Gives VAN just under $1m more in cap space.

Not really into the Brouwer idea. Bieksa and Kassian for Wilson maybe?

Clear a dman spot while getting a young, hard hitting powerforward in Wilson.

Dont really wanna see Kass traded but if he is to be traded I would like to see him traded for a similar player that's younger (ie. Tom Wilson or Nick Ritchie)

I think Wilson could develop into a player like Brouwer, except with a mean streak. Solid defensively, mean, hits hard, decent fighter, and is young.

Value quality is pretty even here, but for the reasons stated above-- Washington loves Brouwer, and he wouldn't actually have a spot readily available in Vancouver. Physical, speedy, net-crashing right winger? Between Kassian, Hansen, Dorsett and Burrows.. We're pretty set on that particular type.
