billabong Posted December 5, 2015 Share Posted December 5, 2015 Now this pure speculating, but I'm guessing since the Kings spent a lot to get him they won't want to see him walk for nothing. if lucic makes it clear to the Kings he has no intention of re-signing with them and his first priority is to sign with the Canucks, should the Canucks jump the gun a bit to help us make the playoffs and support the sedins? Now I'm assuming most teams won't really be interested in him if they know he is purely a rental and the price will be a roster player to be a kind of a lateral move for the Kings so they don't feel a loss because they're still a cup contender. For the other teams sake, Those moves are very uncommon for teams gearing up for a long playoff run Also how much would you spend? If at all to van: lucic to la: vrbata, Jensen, conditional 2nd pick(if the Canucks make it to the 2nd round or west finals) Swapping top 6 forwards who are pending UFA's (plus another moderate asset or two) might be a fair move for a team with very little leverage Sedin-sedin-hansen lucic-sutter-virtanen baerschi-horvat-burrows prust-McCann-dorsett if the sedins keep giving it 100% every night than the Canucks have to respect their franchise players for the last 10 years and give them a chance at the cup Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
