Re: Loui Eriksson.

 

Don't buy him out. Eat the salary. Talk to Dallas and offer them a seventh round pick to take Loui to assign to Texas of the AHL.

 

Why? As far as I know, Loui's rather massive family still lives in Texas from when he played for the Stars. Vancouver is rid of Loui and, most important, he isn't hanging around Abbotsford, which is where we'd like our prospects to develop free from having to play with a guy who is only there for the paycheque. Who wins? Dallas, Loui.,Vancouver (though they'd have to pay him) and Abbotsford. A win-win-win-win situation.

 

Thank you. Thank you very much. I'm here all week.

Pretty decent example of what not to do if Cull puts Eriksson in the press box where he belongs.

It's going to take a lot more than a 7th to ship him to Dallas. Toronto had to pay a 1st to get rid of Marleau- and that was before the flat cap. (Same cap hit and term)

I think he was saying to retain Loui's salary but just ship him out and let him play near home in the AHL.  

 

Not really sure why, as we've never heard that Loui is some sort of a bad influence on guys. Might actually be good to have him around the young guys.  The guys has nearly 1000 NHL games in his career and was a very good defensive player.  Not the worst guy to have around the young guys trying to make the NHL.

And he speaks Russian (at least, he used to yell "backcheck, backcheck" in Russian all the time to Goldy when they were on Petey's line in his rookie season)

Lol - I have, a few times (still in frequent contact with the mother of my godson, now a 14 yr old boy, in Ekaterinburg. She is the English language tutor who last summer  was giving zoom lessons to Russian army recruits, and a few of the Avtomobolist hockey team & their wives/gfs. Been there a couple of times, a really nice city)
