Maybe Benning wants to trade for a center, Monahan. Clean swap... 

interesting, i wonder if calgary is looking for a top 4 D? Tho we will need to sign 2 RHD thru free agency or trades. He would be a nice combo with podz imo but idk seems a bit risky

Canucks open to moving Schmidt

 

What are the thoughts on that?

It feels as if his enthusiasm wasn’t overly shared. Yet he rest of the team, to the point that Holtby had to tell him to lower the amplitude…

 

Is he not a fit then?

 

Schmidt + for Jones?

Pure fodder bait for discussion, troll away trolls and defend nuks enthusiasts.

I would wait for a reliable source.

 

I am not adverse to trading Schmidt, but only if we get a return for him.

 

Post expansion draft there are going to be a bunch of teams who lost a top 4D and will need to replace that roster spot.

 

After expansion I would think Schmidt has more value than what we paid for him.

 

Ideally we add a top 4D and don’t just subtract one.

 

Hughes-Hamonic

Schmidt-Ristolainen (or another RHD

Juolevi/Rathbone-Myers

Bowie


Platoon Juolevi and Rathbone for about 50 games each.  See who can nail down that 3rd pairing spot.  Hopefully a couple of years of Hamonic bus us time to find/develop a replacement.

They don't have the protection spots to add a top 4 D before the ED. As it sits now one of Tanev, Giordano, Hanafin or Anderson will be exposed.

Gio will be exposed unless CGY makes a deal with Seattle.

 

If Gio is exposed Seattle will take him. He'll have 1 year left and would be a pretty nice trading chip at the TD if Seattle isn't all that good next year

What do these guys mean selling low? Don't think it can get lower than a 3rd round pick for Schmidt.

Also, if we trade him it is more equivalent players or significant futures. There is no reason to trade him away to even begin with.

The team would be selling low. That would be an example of poor management (unless the trading partner is completely hornswoggled) if this rumour were true. 

we got him for a third    because vegas had crazy cap problem  pretty sure we can get a late 1st for the  guy

What I'm really blown away by is that there are people out there who would actually pay a subscription to the Athletic to read an article written by Thomas Drance. 

What a waste of money

He's the right age and quite experianced. 

I was surprised by his point ratio.

 

I saw a comment about dumb. 

If Virtanen had put up as many points as Monahan I wouldn'tbother.

I don't see why we would move him after the abysmal season everyone had. Give everyone another year to gel IMO.

One more year under Baumers system - takes time to learned such a complex system.

Also he had almost zero practices to get it right.

would appreciate if OPs put the 'substance' of these rumours in the OP - so you're not creating click bait for these attention seeker 'sources'.

 

reading through the thread it's obvious the source is peripheral garbage - and a waste of time.
