nameci Posted May 20, 2022 Share Posted May 20, 2022 This proposal is based on two premises. First, that even though JT Miller is the heart and soul of the Canucks’ offense, we won’t be able to retain him financially. Second, that even though my proposal involves a team in our division, our management will be able to formulate a trade that benefits the team sufficiently to make a trade within our division a non issue. I don’t think JT is going to generate the bonanza return that some fans are hoping. He is on a contract which next season will be a bargain for the receiving team, but after that his salary and term could be problematic for them. So here goes: To the LA Kings: JT Miller with no salary retained To the Canucks: Helge Grans, Arthur Kaliyev, 2022 2nd round pick While that might not be the windfall that some of you were hoping for, I think it is reasonable valuewise. We are looking for a RHD and the Kings have three in their top ten list of prospects: Clarke, Faber and Grans. They also are loaded at forward: Byfield, Turcotte, Kaliyev, Fagemo and three lesser center prospects. Rutherford has already ben talking about creating some cap space and using it to acquire players from cap strapped teams prior to the beginning of the regular season, so that would be an additional bonus from a Miller trade. 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
