Too bad, he was one of the better D in the playoffs IMO. 

 

Hughes - Schmidt

Edler - Myers

Benn - Rafferty

Juolevi

 

hmmm, that 3rd pairing sure looks mediocre

I would rather go with:

Hughes - Myers

Edler - Schmidt

Juolevi - UFA

Rafferty, Benn

 

I want the Canucks to pick up a cheap UFA D to play 3rd pairing and keep Benn as a 7th/8th D-man.

We don't have any cap space to get another D.

I think Benn will be the 6/7 D as he is willing to play either side. They might switch back and forth as listed below depending on which rookie is playing well or struggling. 

 

Juolevi -- Benn

Benn -- Rafferty

Rathbone - Benn

Smart move by JB, sending Fanta to Russia (SKA) as our spy to make sure he communicates to Podz just how awesome it is to play in Vancouver compared to Russia. Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky.

Out of all of our UFAs JB couldn't re-sign, I bet now he would sign Graovac to a 5 year $15 million contract and then go on record calling him the next Malkin

I don't know where you are, but where I live, it is much too early for heavy drinking.

He's from Calgary I assume and a product of cousin lovin' as a result of being from Calgary.

Who wouldn't. The night life is better in Siberia... or at least longer.

Couldn't. Wouldn't. Shouldn't. All of these are different words, and have different applications based on the situation.

What do you experts out there think of Madison Bowey?  Probably a cheap sign?

Yup. Tough times all around.
Especially for the fringe players.

I doubt that.  The league KHL maximum salary is set at 1.5 million...it’s nothing like the money grab some former NHLers enjoyed.   And as a curiousity, Vey was a PGP last season which also shows how much the skill level is fading over there.    At one point 10million dollar contracts were handed out to marquee guys trying to compete with the NHL and bring home their players ... not anymore.   The SHL and AHL both have a claim at which is the second best league in the world now.

Yep.  Or Rafferty becomes the top four D Craig Button - who’s credibility is top shelf expects him to become - which is a top four NHL D.   It’s entirely possible IF JB gets another NHL D in the system that when the ED happens we will lose out on something hidden within our current system. Sure hope he doesn’t and that it gives our team a chance to see what’s coming up.
