What are you Lucic's agent? When are you guys going to give up. Here's the reason the 'Nucks will not attempt to sign Lucic.

He is too slow, he is over-valued and he would not be a good influence with the young players. Enough said.

He will sign here. Benning has tried acquiring him via trade and Lucic has also said its his dream to play here.

You want to call people out by trying to predicting the future? 2 can play that game buddy.

Trade/let Vbrata walk + trade Higgins. Ideally we get a top-4 defenceman or 1st rounder out of those guys.

Then just sign a top-6 winger. We've got a few to pick from, all of whom would fit perfectly with the Sedins. Lucic, Ladd, Okposo are just some but there are plenty of 20-30 goal scorers available, and we've got 15M to toy with. Ideally we sign a top-6 forward, top-4 defenceman and get another top-4 defenceman via trade while losing Hamhuis.

Our young forwards will only be better one year later so everyone improves except Burrows and the Sedins.


Sedin - Sedin - Lucic/Okposo/Ladd etc.

Baertschi - Sutter - Burrows

Hansen - McCann - Virtanen

Gaunce - Horvat - Prust/Dorsett



Edler - Tanev

Hutton - UFA

Sbisa - UFA/trade

Bartkowski (for depth)

Lucic is getting 6 mil in LA this year, it's not like he's going to give the Canucks a huge discount so it's 6 mil + long term + NTC or even more for less term.

Both his points and PIMs have dropped every year since 2010.

Do not want that crippling contract.  

We are about getting younger and faster,  that is what both Jim and Trevor have said repeatedly.
