Patel Bure Posted October 1, 2021 Share Posted October 1, 2021 [proposal] Hamonic + ??? to Anaheim for Josh Manson Obviously, this post could become null and void later on today if..... 1) Hamonic announces his retirement 2) Hamonic opts out for the season 3) Hamonic rejoins the Canucks However, if there is some validity to the rumor that Hamonic would prefer to play in the U.S., then perhaps the Canucks can look at the Anaheim Ducks and Josh Manson. Manson is a guy that will definitely meet our needs in terms of being a guy that can take on tough defensive assignments on a top pairing role. He could easily be a guy that you can throw out there with Quinn Hughes or OEL. The “trickle down” effect of Manson being here would help out our other RD’s considerably. -Myers can go back to being a #4 guy -Poolman can either go back to an ideal 3rd pairing role, or play on a 2nd pairing in which one of Hughes or OEL could carry that pairing. -Schenn can go back to being a 7th dman that can fill in on a 3rd pairing when injuries hit. With Petey rumored to having an 8 million AAV + Quinn at 7.75, I’m not entirely sure if we would have enough cap space to accommodate Manson’s 4.1 million AAV (Hamonic’s 3 million would go the other way + perhaps someone like Juolevi? and a 2nd?), but I think this is the move that Benning should make it Hamonic does in fact want to play in the States.
