[Rumour] Canucks have not offered C.Tanev a contract extension

This smoke around OEL is interesting. Love Tanev but I'm guessing he wants 6 million at least, plus some term. OEL at 8.5 is a better option. He's a left shot but I wonder if he plays the right side. Hughes and OEL would make a great pairing if OEL can play RS.

In don't know about OEL, but Hughes can.

What I find really weird, is the lack of quality dmen who shoot right, or play right.   
Why are they such a hot commodity?  
when I was playing hockey growing up, I remember pretty much all defensemen were right handed.  
 

And almost all of us used the good old wooden SHERWOOD Coffee or Bourque.  
lol!

Any trade involving OEL would need to include LE going the other way. LE is a plug, but Arizona will need to take back some salary from any team interested in OEL. To me, this is were it gets interesting because of all the bad contracts Arizona will need to take back, LE at least makes financial sense for them. This is probably about money for Arizona and LE has only five owing. It would cost at least Jake and Rathbone or OJ. Probably a high pick as well. It's just so intriguing as it would give us two absolutely legit top two dmen. One could argue we've had two number two dmen in the past but to me it would give us the best top two we've had in decades, possibly ever.

I am in the tail end of my kids minor hockey careers and can tell you for sure this younger generation just lacks in righties. Forward and especially D. Conversly you are correct in that when I suit up for beer league most of us oldies are righties. Its just a weird thing.

Most people are right hand dominant and if you start playing hockey at an older age (about 8 or older) your instinct is to put your dominant hand lower on the stick for better control. And end up a RH shot. If you're much younger than that, your instinct is to have your dominant hand on the top of the stick to get more leverage and end up a LH shot.

time to get it done.

 

#1 priority

 

unless there is a serious RHDeal in the works.....and perhaps regardless - need to bring Tanev back first and foremost

 

Hughes' partner imo is priority.

 

 

Not looking to hot right now unfortunately

Umm...that might explain something...or not.....

pretty sure Coffee was a LHD....

 

And I had to check to make sure, but so was Bourque....

Do we need to quickly check up on JB and make sure he didn't sleep through his alarm today after discussing OEL all night?

It would've been nice to get him signed and traded perhaps. Although that doesn't happen anymore. 

We at least need a player of equal to replace him otherwise the backend is taking a big blow.

I’ve defended Jimbo from the begging but this week has really rattled my confidence in him...

1) Re-sign Tanev

2) Acquire Foote

3) Re-sign Stecher and Fantenburg

4) Sign Richardson, Virtanen and Leivo

5) Waive Eriksson - signal termination.

6)  Remain in the bargain middle six C/W market

7)  dump/move veteran wingers/and Benn, spend moderate future if necessary.

I will cry if he doesn’t. I hope you’re right.

It's been goalies and reclamation projects getting signed so far.  Going to be interesting once the mid tier guys start signing.  I bet there are going to be some real good bargains.

Definitely need him back; Barrie isn't a replacement for what he does.

Darren Dregger and Rick dhaliwal both reporting Canucks have re-engaged Tanev in contract talks.

 

I’m guessing he resigns today, he doesn’t want to leave.

I want to see a Tanev Hughes pairing for the rest of my life.
