Re: 2019 UFA

When attempting to attract a free agent with a potential contract, location very much comes into play. What the city is like. Possibly family reasons. What the potential for success in that city projects to be. What the paycheck whittles down to. Hence this semi decent comparable shows; https://oil...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

It would be nice to see Petterson top 70 points. Also for Horvat and Boeser to hit 60 points each would be a nice accomplishment. Though some posters feel that Sutter is just about as good as Horvat. The next highest scoring skater is Roussel with 31 points. Edler leads the D men with 25 points. Th...

Re: 2019 UFA

I don’t go a penny over 6 for Myers. Gardiner- yuck Eberle- yuck Kick the tires on Stralman. Make an offer to Karlsson. Make a serious pitch to Ferkland Simmons- yuck Jeff Skinner ?? You're all talk. You'd be fine with Myers at $7M. :lol: Ferland and Skinner would require the moving of Baertschi......

Re: 2019 UFA

I would go $7.5M on Myers. A bit more if the term is 4 years or less. The only RS guy we have in the system that is worth crossing our fingers on is Woo, and realistically he is probably at least 3 years away from being ready for a regular top-4 spot. A full year in Utica next season, call-up duty ...

Re: 2019 UFA

Eberle is too slow. Team needs to get quicker I've been holding on to this. https://thehockeywriters.com/edmonton-oilers-jordan-eberle-problem/ The team needs scoring. I would entertain Eberle on a one-year, show me you still got it, deal. There's no risk for the Canucks. It's a Vanek-esque low ris...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

I'd say Marner settles just under Matthews, but more than Tavares - @ $11.15M - $11.5M ish AAV Rantanen better get 12-13 million then. He probably would if he was negotiating with Dubas. But in Colorado he doesn't have any massive salaries to point to as precedence. MacKinnon is only making $6.3M, ...

Erik Karlsson, Anton Stralman, and Jacob Trouba, are all probably going to be re-signed by their current clubs.....but hey it's fun to wishfully post here. Amirite Doc?

Re: 2019 UFA

To UW's point, another good signing was Demitra - not because he a perennial all star, but because Gillis was able to stick to his guns and sign him for only 3 years. Other than Karlsson, it's the 2/3 year deals for second tier ufa's that we should target. Unless Gardiner or Myers is available for ...

Re: 2019 UFA

Hamhuis and Mitchell were in Vancouver for 4 years. Wouldn't we be happy if the Eriksson contract was only for 4 years? Contracts handed out to the marquee players that UFA frenzy that saw Eriksson sign in Vancouver with their stats this season; Kyle Okposo, RW, SIGNS SEVEN-YEAR DEAL WORTH $42 MILL...

Re: 2019 UFA

So should they sit the next year too? There is value in the UFA and this team has signed decent UFA in the past. Thomas Vanek Mats Sundin Dan Hamhuis Willie Mitchell Murray Baron Tanner Glass Raffi Torres Manny Malhotra Anson Carter And then they have a massive blob of shit for signings most of the...

Re: GDT: 18-Mar-2019 - Nucks @ Blahcocks > 5:30PT > SNETP

Demko's movement is not smooth, not fluid, still a little jerky. But his positioning is sound. He handles the puck well too. He usually takes a season to adjust to each level he has progressed to. These next few games are so important for his development that I hope Green at least splits the games....

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Montreal will add a top 4 LD in the summer the rumour mongers have said. So if you are looking for a straight hockey deal the Canucks & Habs should be able to help each other out, while moving a couple contracts neither team likes. With the Habs looking for a top 4 LD this offseason, while the Canu...

Re: 2019 UFA

Skip the top 6 forward group in free agency. Draft a winger unless we are in a spot to grab Hughes, Cozens, or Dach. I read someone on here say they think we are going to see a Toffolli for Hutton trade, I would be fine with that, in fact it got me thinking about IF's and whatever's.....so I hopped...
