Re: Canucks land Brandan Sutter and 3rd round pick

Inter-related trades: June 27, 2014 To Vancouver: Nick Bonino, Luca Sbisa, 2014 first round pick (#24-Jared McCann), 2014 third round pick (later traded to NYR who selected #85-Keegan Iverson) To Anaheim: Ryan Kesler, 2015 third round pick (#84-Deven Sideroff) June 27, 2014 To Vancouver: Derek Dorse...

Re: Free Agency 2015

My guess is they'll attempt to sign Eric Fehr and Matt Bartkowski. Fehr replaces Richardson and Bartkowski provides lower pairing help, and insurance in case Corrado and Clendening aren't capable.

Re: Canucks land Brandan Sutter and 3rd round pick

I'm not sure what to think about this move as far as Clendening is concerned. I'll take S_C's word on it though as he seems to have watched him more than us at the AHL level. If Clendening wasn't going to be NHL ready, then whatever, let the Penguins plug him into their top-6 and be the worse for i...

Re: Canucks land Brandan Sutter and 3rd round pick

I found both Bonino and Clendening to be below NHL average skaters - so at least this reduces the plodding nature of the Canucks. What do you make of the center situation on the roster then? Henrik (34) $7M per, UFA in 2018 Horvat (20) $845k, RFA in 2017 Sutter (26) $3.3M, UFA in 2016 Vey (24) $1M, ...

Re: Canucks land Brendan Sutter and 3rd round pick

The thing I find most interesting about this deal is that the players traded away (Bonino, Clendening) were both Benning trade acquisitions... that is fairly strange. Makes it sound like Benning went after Sutter, and allowed Pittsburgh to select freely from the existing roster. I didn't like Bonino...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Huh? Clendenning isn't likely to ever become a good top four defender in the NHL... but AHL disaster? Where are you getting that? Granted, I didn't watch more than one or two Comets games last season, but from all reports, he had a good year and is a very good defender at the AHL level. The Comets ...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

I'm not sure why some people don't like the Forsling for Clendening trade. Forsling hasn't exactly been a lights out prospect at any level. The guy had 2 really good games at the WJC, and as soon as it came out that he was a Vancouver prospect Canucks fans everywhere thought for sure we had just la...

Re: Free Agency 2015

LOL. I have no idea if they are targeting him. Hey, Eric Fehr is a bottom 6 center! Probably thinks he is worth more than NHL teams are offering (made $1.5M last season with Washington), so that is delaying his UFA signing anywhere. He would be a good addition if you could subtract a Canuck winger ...

Re: 2015 Canucks Draft Roundup

Here's an interesting roundup from Canucks Army: Canucks Deep Dive 2015 Entry Draft excerpt: On Brisebois "However, when you dig a bit deeper, there's actually a lot to like about this selection. First, Brisebois' Acadie-Bathurst team has the second worst offense (2.3 goals per game) of all 60 CHL t...

Re: 2015 Canucks Draft Roundup

Just catching up on the players drafted by the Canucks: 1) Canucks select Brock Boeser 23rd - Craig Button had Boeser ranked #9 overall in the draft! Hmmm... and this is the same Craig Button that ranked Virtanen #43 in the 2014 Draft... which player will he be more right about? (Bob McKenzie ranked...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

I absolutely would pursue resigning Hamhuis (32) - he is the perfect veteran defenceman to have around to mentor/teach the younger defencemen and help keep the Canucks competitive. The style that he plays - quick, smart plays - can last in the NHL a long time - I wouldn't hesitate to explore a 4-5 y...

Re: Pick Your Least Favourite Benning Move

Arghh - looking over the list again, it is alarming how many 2nd and 3rd round picks Benning has traded away in such a short time period... 2014 Canucks 2nd round pick 36th overall retained = Thatcher Demko Tampa Bay 2nd round pick (acquired in the Jason Garrison deal) 50th overall (Roland McKeon) t...

Personally I'm going to enjoy watching the young players grow until then. :thumbs: Not sure how trading a 23 yr old and a 5th next draft for however old the rippers former speed bag is makes us younger but carry on... Because he's gone in a year. Benning just signed Prust to a 4 year, $3.5M AAV ext...

Re: Prospects Thread 2014-15

McNally is officially signed on a two year ELC with San Jose

I had high hopes for this player - and have no confidence Benning made the right move here.
