[Proposal] Kuzmenko to NYR

Recommended Posts

If you were NYR you wouldn't trade Schneider. Top young RDs have become impossible to come by. They have one of the best in Fox who is going to be their top pairing RD for probably another decade. Then there's Trouba who's got a long contract, but by the time that expires, Schneider will take his minutes. Problem is, Schneider is just playing 3rd pairing minutes right now and he's playing far too well - he will deserve 20 minutes next year, but isn't going to get 20 minutes for a while. You can only hope he gets selfish and demands a trade because I doubt Trouba will slow down for another 2-3 years. Poor Schneider can't just eat bottom pairing minutes until he's 24-25, he looks ready now. Of course it'd be better for NYR if he stayed, signs a bridge contract and then likely a long-term deal when he's their 2nd best RD.


Only way they trade Schneider is we give them Bo. Schneider + Chytil + 1st (they might have two this year so...) for Bo, is it that different from the Miller proposals last year? Maybe because Bo may just be a rental and Schneider is so good, that 1st becomes a 3rd or 4th or nothing?


If Bo definitely has to go, I'd do that deal in a split second.

Canucks will try to re-sign Andrei Kuzmenko as trade interest grows

The Vancouver Canucks will attempt to re-sign surging forward Andrei Kuzmenko before trading him amid interest from teams across the league, LeBrun reported on Tuesday.

The team is "expected to open contract talks soon with Kuzmenko," according to LeBrun, adding the 26-year-old could be staring down a bridge contract worth north of $6 million per season.

"There haven’t been any contract negotiations, although the expectation is that should happen within the month here. But what’s interesting, of course, is that teams are calling," LeBrun said Tuesday on TSN's "Insider Trading."
