BeefcakeBo Posted June 24, 2019 Share Posted June 24, 2019 Just now, WHL rocks said: Marleau would not help the Canucks team at all. Remember last year EP went to boards to retrieve the puck got thrown down and injured in FLD. Then same vs MTL when he hurt his knee. Both times he was alone trying to get puck behind the net in O zone. Boeser can't do that either. He's a shooter. He can't be the board player and puck retriever. He's not that player. EP needs a Miller type really bad. Just like Bo and Pearson need a skilled passer on their line. Nyquist or Panarin. We are going to waste EPs talent and put him in bad position unless we give him a power forward Miller is what we hope Virtanen could develop into. I didn't think it was a great trade when first heard. Thought our 40th plus 3rd plus B prospect would be going other way. But it's a good trade. Good to show EP that he's going to get a very good player to play with. You're still missing the point. I'm in no way suggesting we should have gotten Marleau instead, or that the Miller trade is bad or any of that. I'm saying the cost for Toronto is inflated greatly because he is being bought out to let him play somewhere else. If he was only a cap dump and he was playing in Carolina this year then you could basically keep all items in the trade the same and just remove Toronto's first. If, and im only saying hypothetically because its obviously not the case, we were buying out Miller so he could sign somewhere else then we would be getting a similar or more comparable return to the Canes. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
