Hindustan Smyl Posted November 14, 2019 Share Posted November 14, 2019 The Canucks will have a great chance of winning the cup in 2021-2022. This is the year that I have marked on my calendar. Why? You may ask: Here’s why: 1) Miller will still be on his “sweetheart” contract. 2) Boeser will still be on his bridge deal. 3) Podkolzin and Hoglander will be here with on ELC deals. Both players are the real deal, and will undoubtedly provide Horvat the necessary 2nd line help that we need. 4) One of Markstrom and Demko will still be here, with Dipietro or a veteran back-up providing back-up. 5) Quinn Hughes: My guess is that Hughes will be signed to a bridge deal a la Zack Werenski style (whatever the equivalent of 5.5 million is at that time). 6) Tyler Myers. Myers will be older, but not old enough to the point where his game will be noticeably worse than it is now. He will still be more or less the same player. 7) Eriksson: Eriksson’s contract will expire in three years, but mark my words: He’ll be gone after this season. Period. 31 of the 36 million will have been paid to Eriksson after July 1st 2020. Retirement might be a realistic option here. I’m not saying that this WILL happen, but I will say that there’s a really good chance. 8) Chris Tanev: I don’t think the Canucks will move Tanev, and will likely keep him at a very similar cap hit (with a longer term being the trade off). 9) Woo and Juolevi should be full time roster players by this point. 10) Elias Pettersson: I think Pettersson is the one guy that will get the huge 8 year deal, but I don’t see us having cap issues at this point. 11) Edler: The Canucks will either re-sign Edler to a one year deal, or will find the Edler equivalent in the off-season prior. Given how expensive top pairing dmen will be however, my guess is that the Canucks will bite the proverbial boner and offer Edler another two year 6 million deal. I can see the Canucks facing cap issues shortly after the conclusion of 2021-2022, but I think 2021-2022 will be our best shot at winning a cup for the immediate future. Please keep in mind that my math is super half-assed here. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
