[Proposal] CBJ Miller Trade


Recommended Posts

Don’t think they’d be in the market for Myers after recently overpaying for Gudbranson but I could see them being interested in JT Miller especially with his 1 cheap year before his extension.

 

nvm I thought Voraceks 8.25 mill was coming off the books and it’d be an easy fit. They’d have some complications to juggle the cap and make it work.

Honestly, seeing the pending UFA and cap crunch market, I could see Kekalainen try to low-ball (they don't have cap space either).

If we're truly trying to sell Miller, even Kuraly (big checking C, decent at draws) and Peeke (big RHD, shutdown) with an added pick wouldn't be too bad since the top-6 would be set if we're intent on selling Miller.

What about Miller to wherever for picks/prospects and we clear his cap?

I'm wary that this would be the return that we might get

At most the Burns return (Lorentz, average prospect and 3rd).  I think two vets in areas of need who are cheap would be a win.

So like Miller and Myers for Pulock and Pageau?

Miller, Gaudreau and Laine may be the best line in the league next year. I doubt we'd get such a big haul but to keep it simple, we could just build around Miller for Bovqist or Peeke.

 

A more likely deal would be Miller for Peeke, Nyquist and a 1st or 2nd. Cap levels out nicely, CBJ get their 100pt top line center, the Canucks get their top shutdown RD and a 3rd line center rental who can play in the top-6 but will most likely regress a bit next year. We'll probably be around 3M over the cap though so will need to cap dump at least Dickinson for a 3rd elsewhere, but I'd be happy going into the season like this:

 

Mikheyev - Pettersson - Podkolzin

Kuzmenko - Horvat - Boeser

Pearson - Nyquist - Garland

Joshua - Lazar - Hoglander

Lockwood

 

Hughes - Peeke

OEL - Myers

Rathbone - Schenn

Dermott
