[Trade] Canucks trade Nate Schmidt to Jets for 2022 3rd-round pick


Recommended Posts

@Dazzle anything you want to say to @wallstreetamigo and about Thomas Drance? lol ;) jking

 

 

Anyways

 

Good trade, cap space is an asset and this just solved our future cap flexibility issue with acquiring OEL and needing to re-sign Boeser next year.

 

Depending on how JB spends the excess money freed up.

There is enough to pay for Petey, Quinn and Hamilton now

If Petey and Hughes sign bridges sure Hamilton is possible. Looking at almost all that cap needed for the 3 if they don't do bridges(Petey mostly) and we still have a few other holes to fill.

Good to clear the cap. But how is Schmidt only worth a third and Dillon two seconds? Schmidt is worth at least a second. But alas, the market is what the market is. 

Schimdt's contract is pretty hefty. Guy is already 30 with another five years on his contract.

I've been very happy with the off-season so far... Except for that comment. I was speechless for a solid 10 seconds before the raised voice "WHY! WHY SAY THIS!?"<_<

So that everybody thinks we will match any offer sheet, so they don't bother submitting an offer sheet.

Jim's crushing it. I wish he didn't have to retain on Holtby today, but I get that one from a cash flow pov.

Jim's a real Jekyll and Hyde GM. When he's good, he's on point, otherwise, its the 2020 offseason.

 

We need to see the Jekyll Jim Benning more

What does that make OEL's contract then?

I think in Schmits Canucks signing video, he made a statement about how happy he was  not having to worry about petey deeking him out of his jockstrap any more like in Vegas/ Canucks play off bubble. I think he will be very sad the next Jets/ canucks game.

it all happened so fast 

One minute here was here, the next he was gone..  

 

I wonder whether he actually asked to leave after one season, or whether there was pressure from management for him to move on, maybe even a bit of both

 

Just didn't strike me as the character to give up on a team after one season

Ya, I get it, and we needed to move on and upgrade the right. Very much hoping Hamonic. But Dillon is not much younger and a tad overrated.

Is this the first time Benning hasn't lost value in a trade he made...

Technically you could argue that because we were an absolute flop last season that the 3rd we gave up was worth more than the 3rd we received but the flip side is that this past year’s scouting was a lot more challenging than this upcoming year’s scouting (fingers crossed)…

I wonder what he has planned. If he can get Petey/Hughes both on bridges he could make a splash.

Tarasenko @ 30% retained. 
spare parts for defence this year.

muuuuhahahahahahahahabaaaarrrrffff.

On Jim Benning being nimble, quick on his feet and flexible. That is refreshing. Take it as a loss and move on.

May not even be a loss, if we finish ahead of Winnipeg we'll have come out ahead
