nameci Posted February 1, 2022 Share Posted February 1, 2022 I think JR knows something for certain that most Canuck fans can only speculate on. I don’t think that Vancouver will be JT Miller’s first choice when it comes time to sign his next contract. My opinion is that he will probably prefer to sign with an American team. So what do we do with JT in the meantime. A number of Canuck fans feel that we are close to being a playoff team this year, so we will need all of the intangibles that JT brings to the team. Next year, let’s assume that we will again be in the playoff hunt and our chances would be much improved with JT on the team, so we keep him. When all is said and done, JT walks and doesn’t resign. Now we are in the same position as we were when Tanev, Markstrom, Stetcher and Toffoli left for cap reasons and WE GOT NOTHING IN RETURN WHEN THEY LEFT. So I think JR will choose to sell high and get the max return for JT while he is still in his prime and we still have some leverage. i really doubt that Schneider, Carlo or Boldy are coming our way. I get the sense that other teams are unwilling to part with prime young assets for JT’s services. While Canuck fans are thinking Schneider, Chytl and a first is a fair return, I think the Rangers will be unwilling to part with Schneider or even Lundquist in a trade. I think we will harvest a good supply of picks and prospects which will fill two of JR’s requirements, create cap space and restock our prospect pool. This definitely means that no big contracts will be coming back in trade. One fan’s opinion. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
