NUCKER67 Posted November 28, 2018 Share Posted November 28, 2018 What I find, is that some teams make big trades, bring in high quality players who improve the team they've been traded to. Look at BUF, sure they have Dahlin and Mittelstadt in the lineup, but their biggest move was probably trading for Skinner. He's got 19 goals so far. Then there's SJ, who traded for Kane last year and Karlsson this year - contenders. And TOR, they signed Tavares and traded for a good goalie. Now look at them. It certainly isn't because of Matthews. Then there are teams like VAN and EDM, who go out and make a trade for another bottom 6 player, hoping that player improves the PK or adds some grit, or a different dimension to the team, but these trades rarely improve the team much at all. They're bottom 6 players. Last time the Canucks signed a big fish? Was it Sundin for those few months years ago? The Canucks need better players in their Top 6. They should go after Nylander to play with Pettersson. I just feel like they're trudging along year after year, doing the same things. It'll probably happen again at next year's Free Agency, Benning will probably sign 2-3 average UFAs to bring in a veteran presence or whatever. I just want one big trade, something meaningful that will improve the team. Yes, it will cost a lot, but what have they got to lose? Legit Canucks Top 6 Horvat Boeser Pettersson Goldobin that's it, they need more, but from where? Dahlen? He might not make the team for 2 years and he'll probably have to work his way up from the 3rd line. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
