Obviously Eriksson has under performed so far this year.  I still think he will turn things around.  No way a goal scorer with a proven track record forgets how to score.  But all that aside lets look at worst case scenario here.  

He continues at the pace he is currently on.  So maybe he gets 10 goals this year.  What do the Canucks do with him?

 

Option 1: Is there any way to trade him? If so what could we expect in return next summer after a season like that with his contract?  Would any team overlook this and think he could turn things around on a better team?    

 

Option 2: If we can't make a deal is he a target for a potential buyout?  

 

Option 3: Do we keep him around and hope that as we get more talented his game improves?

1. has a nmc (do you research anything before you make a thread or just spew garbage from your fingertips at will?)

 

2. if we buy in out we get charged 3 mill for the next 12 years. is it worth it when we'll  have to replace him with a 3 million dollar guy that will perform the same? no absolutely not.

 

3. IT HASN'T EVEN BEEN 10 GAMES. why can't you just let him have a chance to prove himself. you act like he's been terrible he has 4 pts in those 9 game. he's tied for 3rd in team scoring with Daniel. should we buy him out too?

@Gooseberries already stated everything needed to be said.

 

I will add that, as much as I like Eriksson, the Canucks should not have invested $6M/per for 6 years on a 31 year old forward. An age that is historically passed a forwards prime years. The time to not invest in him has come and gone.

Yes but he completely sucks.  What a waste of 6 mil.  JB may be a good scout but he's a terrible GM.

tied for 3rd in TEAM scoring wow... is that supposed to make anyone feel better? you're laughable

 

He is a big mistake, that will cost this team for 6 years of cap space, he has shown nothing since he has joined this team. Guys like that have one good year always on their free agent year, once they get their big ticket, they don't have to push anymore and what you see is what your gonna get. Enjoy!

 

Jim is pretty good at drafting so far, but nothing else. Over paying "entitled" older hockey players is not the way to build a winner.

NMC have been waived before.  But fair enough.  That does make it things more difficult.  

Obviously the buyout isn't the best option, but if he isn't even producing like a 3 mill guy then it is an option.

Your right.  It has only been 9 games.  As I said at the beginning he has a good track record and will probably turn things around.  This was asking if at seasons end he has continued on his current trend.  Goal scoring is clearly needed on this team.  If he isn't going to provide it is it worth paying 6 million for another assist man?  

 

But thanks for the thoughtful reply.

Oh you know he as a big mistake after 9 games. please tell me extra weeks lottery numbers as well.

 

 

4 pts in 9 games. plays PK. not saying e is worth the 6x6 contract but he isnt as bad s many are making him out to be. are you siding with OP that we should immediately buy him out?

Why ask a question that might not even need to be asked? We might as well ask if Stecher will win the Calder, Horvat will win the Selke, and if we'll sweep all our playoff series this year. Any number of things could happen, but how about we wait until there's at least a chance of them becoming plausible before we start creating threads on them.

Why would you think any team will take option1  when even the canucks dont want him at 6x6?

Fair enough.  I figured since this was arm chair gm.  This entire forum is dedicated to hypothetical situations.
