Ilya Mikheyev Posted October 4, 2021 Share Posted October 4, 2021 (edited) To Detroit: Madison Bowey, 4th round pick 2021, 4th round pick 2022 To Vancouver: Vlad Namestnikov (40% retained), Troy Stetcher, 7th round pick 2022 Why? Vancouver gets their PKing center to replace Sutts. No one at camp/pre-season looks quite ready for that role. Detroit loses players that don't really contribute to their rebuild anyway Vancouver gets their Russian mentor for Podz (kind of looking a bit lost out there..), Namestnikov's father was also part of the Canucks organization for 5 years as a player. He can play W or C when Sutter and/or Motte come back. He puts up decent offense when given an offensive role. before last year, he had two consecutive 31 point seasons, and before that 44 points for the Lightning. He's versatile, so fits into whichever mold Coach Green wants to go for Vlad is also a former jr. teammate of Bo Horvat in London Detroit gets their futures Canucks get a right-sided depth defenseman Canucks get a little morale boost. A lot of players were frustrated with Benning letting so many players walk two off-seasons ago; Troy was well liked by his teammates and fans. Bring back Troy! With Brady Keeper injured and Hamonic in the air, the Canucks could use a right-handed role player. Madison Bowey isn't getting much of a shot here, but he replaces the depth lost from Stetcher. He already had some success under Blashill as he played under him before the Red Wings signed Stetcher Miller - Petey - Boeser Pearson - Horvat - Garland Podkolzin - Dickinson - Hoglander Highmore - Namestnikov - MacEwen (or Lockwood!) Petan Hughes - Schenn (until Hamonic situation resolved..) OEL - Poolman Juolevi - Myers Stetcher, Hunt Demmer Halak Edited October 4, 2021 by Teemu Selänne Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
