Domi just seems like a hockey trade I could see benning do if schmidt did want out

I see your point, but top four D are worth a lot more than a player like Domi.  I could see Schmidt and 9OA for Seth Jones as a more realistic trade.

I still think Vancouver trades 9th overall. I think if they can move out cap and also get a young player they will.

 

It may not look sexy on paper but here is what a think should happen. 

 

To Buf:

9th overall, Louis Eriksson

 

To Van:

Sam Reinhart

 

It would usually cost a 1st to just get rid of eriksson so not so bad.

 

To CBJ:

Nate Schmidt

 

To Van:

Max Domi

 

To seattle:

2023 2nd

 

To van:

They must select antoine Roussel

 

Cbj will need to replace jones and likely don't mind moving on from Domi. Reunite Domi and Horvat

 

Sign edler and Hamonic to discounts

 

Sign Ryan Manta 

 

Hoglander pettersson Boeser

Domi Horvat Reinhart

Pearson Miller Podkolzin 

Michaelis Boyd Motte

 

Hughes Hamonic

Rathbone ?

Edler Mantha

Juolevi

 

Demko

Holtby

 

Not sure who our 2nd RD will end up being. 

 

Nice.

 

I like the top 9. Can mix and match to find the ideal line combo.  

 

The D needs fixing.  Finding that RHD will be the challenge.

I don't like the idea of Jones when he's not willing to do an extension prior to a trade.  Given his political beliefs, I would suspect Vancouver won't be a great fit for him off the ice.

What if we had TWO top-10 picks?

 

Van- Q Hughes, Dipietro, Virtanen(or Rouss)

 

Det- #6 OA, Zadina/Albert Johansen, Bertuzzi

 

Our cap-crunch becomes a non-issue. Personally I really believe Rathbone can be a better 200 ft D than QH.

Also strongly feel we'll need size on the blueline to eventually have multiple long PO-runs. JR is built like a fire hydrant, the rest should be 6 ft+, & a couple with snarl.

 

Stevie Y can reverse the gaffe of his predecessor. Hughes & Seider makes a sexy pair to build from.

 

Sign Driedger/Ullmark type for a strong 'tender-tandem.

 

With #6 & #9 OA, we could spend a pick on a fwd & a D

I like it.  Zadina is still a good prospect and has a great shot.

I go on record that in my belief that Buffalo would love to part with their number 1 overall pick for a D-man like Quinn Hughes. Zadina at this point does not hold a candle to Quinn in terms of impact. Ditto, Bertuzzi. If this view gets me the Homer of the Year title, then so be it. :P Alright, flame on!

You’re 100% right, and don’t fret.  No way we trade Huggy Bear.

Partly, but Benn has some serious skill that MacT likely doesn’t have.  

Just a reminder Alf

Jamie Benn was a 5th rounder (129th OA)

You gotta let these kids mature before making statements like that

IMO, you can't compare them right now, obviously McTavish has not done what Benn has done

Gotta be some juicy pick in the 3-5th rounds this year with less scouting and playing time

Yep. I’ve seen lots of ridiculousness on this forum over the years, but trading Quinn Hughes away pretty much takes the cake.

 

I don’t think he will ever struggle on the defensive end like he did this past season. He’ll shore things up.

Yes we are lucky to have some of these players. I think fans are still getting use to the fact we have these young stars. I remember years of hoping for some young talent. 
 

Quinn Hughes is far from a finished product. 
 

Look at Boeser, he is just starting to round out his game. Becoming a pretty reliable player. Wasn’t long ago he was viewed the way Hughes is now.

The closer we get to this Draft, the less I want Benning to trade the #9. Canucks have a chance to pick up a really skilled player who will provide years of exciting play with Pettersson, Boeser, etc., who won't cost much for the first few years. VAN missed the 1st round last year and that sucked.

I agree. With the salary cap a top 10 pick is pure gold.  Even if they just pan out to be a cost controlled, home grown middle 6 type… there’s a ton of value and flexibility there beyond the player themselves.
