[Trade] Blackhawks trade Madison Bowey, 2021 5th-round pick to Canucks for 2021 4th-round pick


Recommended Posts

canucks are acquiring some cost certainty going into next year and are now expansion draft compliant. 

 

dont get butt work sliding down 1 round, the prices were probably going to go up closer to the draft when teams get desperate.

It’s almost as though people on this board can’t or won’t read. We didn’t trade a 4th for Bowie, we downgraded from a 4th to a 5th. 

 

And it still sucks :lol:

What is the challenge to understand here. We turned the 130ish pick into a 160ish pick. In exchange we get a player that had already passed through waivers and can sit on the taxi squad or AHL while Juolevi get to play more. That alone is a win in my book. Additionally we have someone to expose in the expansion draft that we don’t care about. You can hate Myers or his contract if you want but our right handed D options are significantly worse without him. This is a meh move that actually fixes a problem. 

oh wait I forgot BeNnINg SuCkS!! That’s why...
 

So true

Not sure where you're seeing that but it's definitely not true. He is signed for this season and next at 725k cap hit, which means we can't even extend his contract until next season begins.

april fools haha

I saw Bowey play for years in junior.

 

Looooved him and wanted him so badly.

 

Not sure what happened to him but always hoped he'd put it together.

 

Now I'm really hoping he does because come on baby, BCs been good to you.

 

Also....it's not even remotely a loss.  It's picking up a potential asset and moving down a few spots.  The only move I'm meh about today

For those complaining about waivers, players like Bowen are more valuable once they pass waivers as we can just put him on the taxi squad and have his cap essentially removed. If we pick someone on waivers. The player has to he on the active roaster and eat into our already capped cap.

Also a waiver pick up also would take up a spot from the kids that we should he playing for tue rest of the season. 

Yeah but complaints, anger.

I rather Myers actually be exposed. Also we had to give up a 4th to expose a bad Dman instead of Myers? Awesome logic lol

Your understanding of hockey is now in question.

I watched him in Kelowna  bunch and saw he had all the tools.  Hope he puts it together.   One more rocket for the defence, Edler,  Myers, Bowie.

So...

 

Gaudette, Benn and a 4th for Bowey, Highmore, a 5th and a 6th?

 

Feel like we downgraded at both positions then traded down from the 4th round for two later picks. Makes zero sense to me.

Bowey  played 53 games last year.  Should cover a required body to be exposed for ED.  Cost > Downgrade a 4th to a 5th.  

 

Means we can protect both Meyer & Schmidt, one of whom otherwise would be the only body who meets requirements, And presumably Juolevi. Happy with this part, for this reason.

 

Gaudette was pure ''we gave up!''  Sad, because we don't have a young C knocking on the door. I am not one who believes Jasek & Lind are NHL ready.

Funny about adding Bowey to protect Myers is that everyone’s biases get confirmed.  
 

I like Myers and see adding a middle pairing RHD as onerous so it confirms that he has value and that Seattle has a decent chance of snapping him up if exposed. 
 

OTOH people who think management are dumb can just chalk this up to dumb management doubling down on a dumb bet in the first place.
 

Funnnnny stuff.

Pick swap is basically meaningless, once you get into the success percentages on three digit numbered picks.

 

So, for basically the cost of a contract slot, we add a guy who can meet exposure requirements, and gain some flexibility on our protected list (don’t have to expose Myers).

 

And, I suppose we add a RH shot depth Dman with some “last chance” upside, as a reclamation project, on a cheap contract through next season.

 

But wow, Bowey’s fancy stats are really something. :sick:

 

 

I don’t like a lot of what JB does but there are a lot of things I do like.
 

I’m one of the few on the JB hate train that doesn’t actually mind trading picks for other teams disappointments. Especially defensemen. I mean, if we drafted a player of Bowey’s caliber in the 4th/5th round we would be over the moon. 
 

I watched a lot of Rockets Games live and saw a lot of Bowey. He is physical, he shoots right, and he shoots hard. he moves like a potato but that can be improved on in the proper environment. I imagine he is extremely excited about getting a chance here in van. I can’t see Seattle selecting him.
 

Who knows? D men are tricky, maybe things just suddenly click for him. The chances of that happening are far greater than selecting a NHL player in round 4.
