#1megnafan Posted January 23, 2017 Share Posted January 23, 2017 Hello, As it is pretty obvious this my first post. I’ve been on these message boards for years but just as a guest reading your guys opinions and updates on our prospects. There has been so many trade Tanev proposals but they all have us taking back a forward who we would have to protect in the upcoming draft. I believe we should be trying to trade for a player that isn’t expansion draft eligible. New Jersey: Tanev Vancouver: Pavel Zacha Pieces may have to be added on both sides to make the cap work or even out thw but the 2 main pieces would be those players. Even though Tanev is our most consistent reliable defender he also holds the most trade value. I believe our depth at D allows us to make this trade. Zacha is a former 6th overall pick from 2015 who has so far had a below average start to the beginning of his nhl career. With combination of him not putting up a lot of points, being a healthy scratch numerous times and the fact that the Devils are weaker on defence since the departure of Larrson that they would be open to the idea of trading the former 6th overall pick. The Canucks as a team get weaker following this trade as we lose our best defensemen and insert a guy who hasn’t contributed a lot of offence this season, but I think it fills a need for the future as Zacha has the size and skill to fill our future top 6 centre/left wing that we need. Then come expansion draft Biega will be our defensemen left exposed and management will have to make a decision on whether to expose granlund, hansen or baerstchi (I think they should trade Hansen) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
