Why would Horvat sign an extension to go to CBJ when he can go anywhere he pleases at end of season?

 

Agreed there. Miller would make more sense with him already re-signing, but would he be able to land Johnson and Cuelemans?

Gaudreau - Miller - Laine sounds better than Gaudreau - BoHo - Laine

I'd prefer that, sure, but Miller isn't a real center 

 

Maybe they don't care if they're scoring more though

Those look some good trade options.  Man if we can get Jiricek that would be the bomb.  But Johnson and Ceulemans would really help with the rebuild.  If we can land Bedard as well, then our rebuild may not last that long. 

hope none on your deadpool list. you know how deadly that is.

I could see something like:

 

to CBJ - (C) Bo Horvat and (LD) Jack Rathbone

to VAN - (C) Jack Roslovic, (LD/RD) Jake Bean and 4th

Need a hell of a lot more than that. Their 1st in 2023 unprotected would START the discussion for me on Bo.

 

I'm with most fans, I'd rather move Miller at this point, they are looking for leadership is my guess, the has a LOT of guys on IR.

Yeah. If Bo leaves VAN you would think he wants to goto a winning environment given what he has stated publicly.

 

In any event Miller ended up being re-signed so Ill believe it when I see it.

With their current cap issues and their awful start to the season they have the current assets to facilitate just that,  Jiricek might be a stretch but they'll never give up sillinger, a local boy.  They need to shed cap like voracek.  that leaves them very little wiggle room.

 

Miller is a non starter due to cap issues.  They can't win faceoffs meaning Horvat is the most logical option.  Johnson is/would be redundant and obviously a solid pick up for Vancouver due to the local boy flavour.  Jiricek is a year or two away but Kekkalainen is on the hot seat and rumoured to be at risk of unemployment.  GMs in danger due crazy things like trade expiring contracts and top 10 picks for aging defensemen.

I see, what you did there.....:ph34r:

You guys :lol:

 

They are not going to sell their franchise forward + dman for an expiring UFA. Not even Voracek as a cap dump would be enough. And even if Horvat agrees to sign, that would be terribly shortsighted for them.

True....

But as have been mentioned, a GM on the hook doesn't tend to look too far into the future..
