OEL for Schmidt with Arizona retaining the difference in the cap would you do it?

Nope.

Looks like it may be Schmidt & Virtanen for OEL…

 

Dunno if that’s a good thing or not…

 

I like that EDM proposition of Larsson & 20OA21…

Seems terrible to me. 

 

I value contract flexibility at the highest premium. So although Jake has significant issues his contract is wonderful in that he will be gone soon.

OEL's buyout is actually pretty decent if you need to do it at some point in the contract.

 

So how do you sell that do an owner?

 

Hey man, if we trade for player xyz, in three years I think he sucks and we can pay him millions of your dollars to not play here.

 

Let's get him!

Wait, an $8mil defenceman  for 7 more year that cant defend. A career minus player. Isn't that the exact opposite of what we need? We have young puck moving defencemen that will serve us better for way less. Need big strong RHD with grit. Why even entertain these thoughts even if they take loui!!!! 1 more year, let the youth show what they got and evaluate what we have then with  just the Luongo recap to sort out. Hitching up with OEL is just the next ball and chain for van but for way longer. Terrrible idea.

interesting. I still think OEL is the better player than Nate. OEL-Myers could be a really solid pairing for us. If the cap hit was the same, I'd be fine with OEL coming here.

I would rather look at a Schmidt for Dumba  trade 

Doesn't do anything for the Wild and really Dumba should not be a target given how much the Canucks struggle to play defence.  

 

In their exit meeting Guerin told Dumba that he hopes not to lose him by trade or in expansion.  The Wild need cap space and Dumba might be a cap casualty.

but the Wild have 15 mil in space, do you really think they need to dump Dumba?

Isn’t the biggest issue with OEL is his foot speed? His skating isn’t keeping up with the increased speed of the game

 

please confirm as I’m unsure I haven’t seen too many zona games

Sucha HARD no on OEL 

 

the most appealing part of the OEL trade last year was reallocating bad money to a better on ice player and that ship has sailed

 

Even if the Canucks rolled up roussel, eriksson and beagle for OEL in a strictly money for money move, I’d still say no. 

 

After next season Arizona would be totally free of all money constraints and we’d be paying OEL 8.25m for FIVE more years from age 30 to 35 

 

No GIF

Love this devito gif my favorite ahah

OMG. More awesome contracts. 

 

When are we going to learn to stay away from the dog contracts and soft players?
