A fantastic young centreman to complement Lafreniere. They reluctantly give up Schneider and Kaako for him. WPG get a great cost and club controlled winger in Garland. Seems they're having trouble retaining talent, so acquiring Garland makes a lot of sense. Kaako is a great piece with a lot of potential. Copp returns home to WPG via UFA to fill the vacancy by PLD. VAN gets their top pairing RHD for Hughes, and without having to give up Miller too! Provides much more flexibility for where Miller lands. I'll add a Miller trade here in a bit... EDIT: And here is my Miller trade after hearing about how Malkin is likely to walk from Pittsburgh. To PIT: JT Miller Tucker Poolman To VAN: John Marino Kasperi Kapanen Samuel Poulin Filip Hallander PIT gets their replacement piece for Malkin in a prime JT Miller. They also get a serviceable RHD to replace some of the minutes lost from moving Marino. Canucks get a very solid and consistent defensive defenceman in Marino locked up to a good contract. They also acquire a feisty and speedy 3rd line winger in Kapanen. The 2 prospects acquired bring depth to the prospect pool. Although not top tier prospects, they will likely be good to excellent NHLers one day. Notice how I like both of them in the fact they are both known to attack the net with the puck... something the Canucks are lacking for the most part (other than Podz). Samuel Poulin: "Poulin is a very all-round player. He plays a good two-way game and has very few weaknesses to his game. Furthermore, he competes hard, has leadership qualities and is a decent point producer." "A creative offensive player with high-end offensive upside. He can put the puck in the back of the net and distribute it to his teammates," "He plays a smart game, is strong on the puck along the wall and doesn’t mind going to the net with it" "He is very good at handling the puck with speed and is a complete power forward," Filip Hallander: "Two-way forward and a capable skater. Works hard and forechecks and backchecks impressively. Shoots and passes the puck equally well. Smart in all three zones and a good team player." "his competitiveness and the way he attacks the net make him a dangerous player in the offensive zone," Edited July 5, 2022 by HKSR 3 3 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
