SliteriousBlackbeard Posted January 18, 2017 Share Posted January 18, 2017 I hate that this is my first post of CDC however here on my thoughts on what it would take to make a trade happen with colorado. To Vancouver:Gabriel LandeskogMatthew DucheneColorado 1st round pickTo Colorado:Olli JuoleviNikita TryamkinThatcher DemoVancouver 1st round pick Why Vancouver would do this trade: I don't think the Canucks would ever make this trade but If we are being honest, this is in the area of what it would take to get a trade done. To have the offensive guys in Duchene and Landeskog (Future captain of Vancouver) would increase sales for management, people would be excited to see a their team score. The team also gets help up front for the future With colorado's 1st pick, hopefully top 4 would ad another offensive chip for Vancouver. Vancouver would be giving up a lot but getting a lot in return. Why colorado would do this trade: They are in dyer need of defence and this years draft pool is not deep enough to get the top 2 pairing d-man. (imo) They will be stuck with an offensive guy. Goaltending is going to become a bigger problem and Thatcher fixes that in a couple years. This might not be a trade that will immediately help colorado but its certainly a trade for the future and change the direction of the franchise for the better. Why colorado would take these young d-men: Olli Juolevi (18 years old) Round 1 #5 Overall, Projected Top 2 pairing 6'3" 183lbs -High end playmaking abilities -Big body (over 200lbs in prime) -Uses his body to his advantage -Great skating abilities -Awesome puck handling -Long reach -Characteristics of a leader. Future: -Top 2 Pairing -Top offensive d-man/Top shut down d-man -Quarterback power play -Huge penalty killing abilities -Future captain. Olli is a star, a star now and a star till the end of his career. Nikita Tryamkin Round 3 #5 Overall, Projected Top 4 pairing -Huge shot -Huge body -Great puck handling skills -Skating is improving dramatically -Always a presence on the ice Future: -Top 3-4 Pairing (Maybe Top 2) -Shut down 1st lines/ Top players -Going to be penalty kill star -Going to put up lots of point on power play Nikita is going to be a star in this league, he reminds me of Chara. No body liked playing against Chara in his prime. Thatcher Demo Round 2 #36 Overall, Projected Elite GoaltenderThatcher Demko is an exceptionally athletic goaltender that can seem unbeatable on many occasions. His composure in net and modified butterfly style have scouts comparing him to Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators. He prepares himself well, positionally, for initial shots and the subsequent rebounds, and his cross-crease lateral movement is very good. As he tracks the puck, his stick always covers the five-hole and he makes himself big. One of the most noticeable aspects about Demko's style is that he doesn't go down prematurely; he isn't overly aggressive, but will get out to the top of the blue paint to challenge shooters with a clear shooting lane. Moving forward, Thatcher Demko will have every opportunity to develop into an elite franchise-type goaltender that can be relied upon in all situations.Future Line up:Landeskog-Duchene-BoeserBaertschi-Horvat-VirtanenSedin-Sedin-Eriksson Gaunce-Grandlund-RodinGaunce-Zhukenov-GrenierHutton-GudbransonEdler-TanevSbisa-Stecher Markstrom GarteigWith Colorado first round pick i would try to trade up for more picks and get a top 4 defensive/goaltending prospect. If the pick was top 3 I would not trade it. Sbisa position is interchangeable. 4th line can be changed however you'd like. I would hate to play our 3rd line that outrageous amount of money. Trading the line for Gaunce-Grandlund-Rodin hopefully trading sedins for picks and most likely having to buy out Eriksson. If somehow Daniel, Henrik, Loui, Ryan Miller all come off our books, with hansen and borrows on expiring contracts between this year and next it would give the Canucks 32.5 million to resign any players. Im not a cap expert but that should be enough room. Swapping any players for draft picks if possible.Thanks for reading. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
