He has 36 million reasons to be thanking us. 

 

Phoenix would have to pay him $3 million next season.  We'd have paid him $33. 

...only 30 million off the cap  We saved 6.  something like that I believe.

 

Still not a bad haul. In 5 seasons here, he has accumulated 90 points.

That's about $365,000.00 per point.  That a lot, even in Swedish krona.

Agree! Basically, if someone in the organization could GAURANTEE that the 9 O/A pick would be top 4 defenceman or top 6 forward then we don't make this deal. Otherwise, we basically got OEL for a 1st, Garland for a 2nd, and paid ARZ a 7th to dump 3 bad contracts.

 

A couple of days ago if GMJB reported that the Canucks had made a side deal with the Kraken to trade them Roussel, Beagle and LE for the price of a 7th, we'd be calling it the greatest deal in the history of the NHL.

Jones is better and younger than OEL.   They are closer in quality than many here seem to think.  Jones contract is massive and will take him to 35 and so does OEL.  

 

Adam Boquist, 2 1st's and a 2nd?  Adam Boquist is a great young player.  Those are incredible picks.  

 

JB got Garland a 1st line RW.  He gave up 3 contracts totalling 12 mil.  He gave up a 2nd next year.  He gave up a 7th in 2 yrs.  

 

After seeing what Philly paid for Risto and Chi paid for Jones, this is up there with the best deals in Canuck history.

 

JB rules!  

 

All 3 contracts are expiring. OEL's contract runs through 2026/2027.

 

Not saying the Canucks have lost the trade (because we'd have to see which version of OEL we're getting) but it's disingenuous to leave out such a big detail.

Miller on the third line - I liked him on the lotto line because he adds grit and pushback for Elias.  I also don't want him feeling buried on the third line.  He's too good for that.

Players like Miller on the third line is what we need to be a contender.

 

Horvat is 3rd line in Pittsburg.  If their feelings are hurt move them out

I'm hearing that they had an idea of how things were going to play out last night.  May have factored in.

They probably caught the selections when shopping the pick. Good call.
