(Proposal) NYR & VAN


Recommended Posts

Whilst we have an established legit #1 line in Miller, Petey, and Boes our biggest hole remains a top 6 winger to compliment Horvat. Leivo and Pearson have done an admirable job this year but neither of them can be considered top 6 players in the long run.


What would it take to get Chris Kreider out of NYR or would it better to persuade him during the free season. He has topped out at 53 points but plays a hard, gritty game with pace and has the tools to be an all around playmaker/scorer that can create space for Horvat.


He is a free agent at the end of this year and don't think NYR wants him back or that he would want to return whilst they are rebuilding. Nevertheless, they wont be letting him go for free


Rafferty/Rathbone/Lind (all are progressing well and have been having good seasons for far)

Goldobin (can join their glut of Russian prospects)

3rd round pick in 2020 (2nd rounder if we make the Stanley Cup finals lol)


Does this get it done? Is it better just to wait and take our chance in FA and hope no one outbids us? 25-27.5million/5 years would be good value to extend him prior to July 1, 2019


Future Lineup


Miller Petey Boeser

Kreider Horvat Virtanen

Podkolzin Gaudette Hoglander

Roussel ???? MacEwan

If they trade for him, it has to be a sign and trade, as the Canucks, imo, do not have the assets to aquire him and then see him walk at the end of the season.



Never mind- research(Cap Friendly) shows him as an RFA, not UFA
