On the personality thing, I'd leave that to Benning and Green, they know what they want and what the fit would be. Edler-PK Hughes-Tanev ^ thats certainly better than what we've seen for a while now. You bring up some interesting details, Jimmy. His salary cap and term wouldn't really be a factor for the Canucks. He had a down season last year, due to injuries, but he had 59pts in the previous season. He's a good skater, high energy player, a nasty agitator, who plays a physical game and is not afraid to jump in and protect a teammate. He is also disliked by a lot of player throughout the league and his personality rubs the old school stodgy NHL, the wrong way. I think he would add and exciting dynamic to our team and his game would certainly be a huge advantage. The big problem is what Nash would want in a trade. PK is still worth +++ assets and I would be wary of what Van would have to give up to get him. I also think that TG might have issues with Subban's style of play and flamboyant personality. I suspect Travis would try to rein him in too much, which would create a lot of problems. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
