[Speculation] Pearson Put On LTIR, Is There A Trade In The Works?


Recommended Posts

No real reason to place Pearson on LTIR unless there is a trade coming before the TDL and the space is needed.

 

Sitting with about 4.3 mil in cap space before this adds a substantial amount of usable space. 7.4 mil space now.

 

Next year Pearson, if healthy loses trade protection.

 

I sure hope they aren't thinking about trading for one of the available defencemen especially Chychrun, way too expensive unless it is a multi player trade.

If Gavrikov then a bigger trade.

 

 

Or the 3rd in a three way trade where the team gets picks.

There is no value in putting Pearson on LTIR for the rest of the year unless they are taking on more cap. It is only good until TDL day and then it doesn't matter anymore. IR and LTIR would be the same after.

 

Something like working with Edmonton for a Karlsson trade but that is long term cap retention, the Canucks would have to get multiple 1rts for multiple years from both teams.

 

But retention around Kane might make a lot more sense. Or some other high cap hit contract in the last year or a RFA

Yeah man I get that. I also get that this franchise disappoints at every possible chance to do so.

Would hate facilitating a Karlsson trade unless the return is exceptional.

 

Kane seems more realistic.

 

I could see Pearson going on LTIR being a shot across the bow of other GMs that the Canucks may be serious about exchanging cap space for assets, assuming there's nothing already in the pipeline. Would love to see this strategy used to benefit the team long term.

I don't quite understand the implications of Pearson going on LTIR and how this means a trade is going to happen. I guess they would have extra cap space, but what kinds of trades could happen?  Is this about the Canucks taking on a bad contract (for a pick and prospect/player)?

I'm hoping that there's a trade in the works. One would have thought, with Horvat jettisoned to the Islanders, that more players would be traded during this flaming bag of dogshit season. Hopefully things start happening and fans get a clearer picture of what type of team this "management group" wants to build. I'm not holding my breath though.

We can help facilitate trades taking expiring contracts to balance money in a deal etc. 

 

Cap space in the current flat cap landscape that is the NHL gives our team creative ways to potentially extract extra assets
