WHat do ew want to happen during this offseason ?


Recommended Posts

So I have a question for all of you fans out there.

This offseason is kinda important don`t you think ?

What do you want to happen this summer ? How do you think Benning should do it ? We don`t know  what he has to work with, so I´`ii put down some parameters for you ?

!. You`ll get 6 millions in buyout money.

2. You have to make the roster better.

3. Who do we keep ? 

4. Who do we trade away ?

5. Who do we move up from the prospect pool ?

6. And what size of contract do we sign for Pettersson and Hughes ?

7. Finally present you`r roster and it has to be under the cap.

Players you add will cost the same as last year, for argument sake.

1) Schmidt + 9OA + Matt Tkachuk 

2) Antoine Roussel for a low round pick to clear cap space.

3) Move Roussel for a pick

4) Sign Sami Vatanen to the same deal that we gave Hamonic this past season.  1 year reclamation.

 

Miller-Pettersson-Boeser

Tkachuk-Horvat-Podkolzin

Pearson-Dickinson-Virtanen

Motte-Beagle-MacEwen

 

Hughes-Hamonic

Rathbone-Vatanen (Vatanen-Myers if Rathbone isn’t ready for 2nd pairing duty)

Juolevi-Myers (Rathbone-Bowey)

 

Demko

Holtby

 

That defense would need some significant work however.   Maybe Holtby and Myers can be moved for a cheaper back-up + a more defensive defenseman in a pure hockey deal?   I’m not sure...

I don`t like Benning wery much but if i`m going to criticize him I´d better have a better solution than he has. I know that he put himself in the position he`s in, so how do we solve it ?

Does this comment rattle your cage ?

Our 9th OA for McDavid!

 

....ohhhh, and World Peace...

 

I might be SOL on both of those, but hey...nobody set terms in this thread, so I'm sticking with those... ;)

 

 

Unlimited free beer would be nice too...just saying...

Draft Luke Hughes or McTavish with the #9

 

Buyout Eriksson and Roussel.  I'd let Jake sit.

 

Trade Schmidt to CBJ for Max Domi

Sign UFA (RD) Damon Severson (NJ) $6 x ?

Sign UFA (RD) Markus Nutivaara (FLA) $4 x ?

 

Sign Pettersson and Hughes to whatever they want.

 

Pettersson - Miller - Boeser

Domi - Horvat - Podkolzin

Pearson - Dickinson - Hoglander

Highmore - Beagle - Motte

 

Hughes - Severson

Rathbone - Myers

Juolevi - Nutivaara  (be good for Olli)

 

Demko

Holtby

 

Didn't do the math to see if it works

East/West?

Elegant women?

Eric Weinrich?

Electric Warrior(GREAT album!)?

 

...Who are we asking here?

I'm not sure he's the best guy to ask, he sees everything through yellow colored lenses.

That really shows how new you are to the game (besides some of your other posts...)
Anyways this is Eric Weinrich

Canucks By the Numbers on Twitter: "#Canucks Uniform Number 8: Eric  Weinrich - he of the yellow visor #VanWWIB #WhoAlsoWoreIt  http://t.co/4jl34x8Ofc"

I’m familiar with Weinrich and remember his brief stint in Vancouver (along with his playing career in general), but was unaware of the fact that he had a yellow visor.

 

Ps - I can see why you’d think I’m a new fan (based on a lot of my posts), but I also feel like you might not fully understand where I come from in a lot of my posts, in that, many of my outlandish proposals are ‘Devil’s advocate’ type posts and/or ‘think outloud/brainstorm’ posts where I attempt to facilitate discussion in order to collect viewpoints which often serve to re-enforce my true hidden opinions.

You don’t like phonics very much either.

OK this is off the board.  Assuming that the Nucks will not have a lot of extra $ to get the gems we would love to see signed, I think this year is a holding pattern with some upside like, (making the playoffs so the youngsters get more experience.  Sooooo...

 

Trade Schmidt to Jersey for PK Subban (1yr remaining @ 9M minus Schmidt $5.95).

Sign UFA Brassard for $1.5

 

So that's $4.5 to fill 2 important roles.

 

3rd line   Dickson    Brassard   Podkolzin

If Beagle doesn't play, Dickson drops to 4th and Motte plays on 3rd

 

Quinn 6m        Subban 3m

Edler 2m         Meyers 6m

Jou/Rath 1m   Hamonic 2m

I’m confused by your math. Taking on Subban @ $9m and Brassard @$1.5m ($10.5m) and sending go out Schmidt ($6m) doesn’t create $4.5m of cap space.  It eats up an additional $4.5m.  I must be reading your post wrong

This is what I WANT happening this offseason
 

Trade Virtanen+ Lockwood for Domi 

Trade Schmidt + 2nd Round pick + small add for Parayko

Extend Parayko 7.5m x 7 years (sign and trade)

Use our 9th OA to select Johnson/McTavish

Trade Braden Holtby 

Buy-Out Beagle

Buy Out Roussel 

Send Eriksson to the minors/retire 

Resign Edler 3.0m/ 1 yr w/bonuses

Resign Hamonic 3.5/ 2 yrs

Sign Ryan Getzlaf 2-2.5m/ 1 yr w/bonuses

 

Domi Pettersson Boeser

Miller Horvat Hoglander 

Pearson Getzlaf Podkolzin 

Motte Dickonson Hymore 


Hughes Parayko 

Rathbone Hamonic 

Juolevi Edler 

 

Demko


Who better to mentor Podkolzin and further develop Horvat than Getzlaf? In two years time Johnson/McTavish will be ready to take over 3c.
