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

Recommended Posts

I loved all the moves JB has done this off season so far except for this. I don’t care how some of you look at Schmidt as being redundant in his style of play. He is worth more than a 3rd as a bona fide top 4 D man. I would have kept him. Only way I would be ok with this is if he went after another big fish like Dougie Hamilton.

lol... so much for denying rumors Schmidt requested trade. Cough Benning and Schmidt. Jets have lots of room to improve their D, a 3rd is all they are willing to pay? Cheapskates! I guess the league runs by, this is how much you originally got Schmidt for though. 



Just because he was traded, does not mean he asked for a trade.

JB's moving out guys for $$$$, to get the players that want to play here, and to get players tomorrow to be a part of this team. That leaves about $25M if I'm not mistaken to sign EP, and QH. Plus two righty D's and more forward depth.

$26M cap space and I think also Ferland $3.5M LTIR money.

Same price we gave up after a brutal season.  Either Benning bent over Vegas for the initial trade or he got pretty decent value here.



A 3rd was an incredible price for Schmidt, Benning's best trade by far.


Even after a tough year, Schmidt is worth more than a 3rd.


Unless he desperately wanted out, I hoped we would keep him. His value to us if he has a bounce back season is obviously much higher than a 3rd.
