Re: Apparent contradiction?

I'm just saying with Horvat's semi-friendly contract, and Pettersson ELC, the Canucks can afford to spend cap money on some quality depth centers. Personally, I was hoping that before the end of Sutter's contract, Gaudette would be the 3rd best centre in the Canucks system. Yeah that's the master p...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

Goldobin has shown significant improvement in each of his pro years. He's in the final year of his ELC, and has shown what you want to see from a good offensive prospect. I'm not saying he's going to be a star, but it's a little early to write him off. Being a Mason Raymond is actually a pretty goo...

Re: Apparent contradiction?

I think the Penguins did just fine with Nick Bonino as their 3rd line centre. :lol: Yup, I wasn't talking about Bonino and his capabilities, I was talking about cap hits specifically Sutter's, and they shaved off just enough in that trade to be able to get another dman for depth iirc. They tried Sh...

Re: Apparent contradiction?

They shouldn’t trade Sutter until Pettersson and Gaudette have been successful at centre at the NHL level. Sutter can always move to the wing if they are ready. He has a NTC this year, and there is no rush to move him at all. Next year and the year after he has a motified no trade clause. If you ca...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

icymi - Chris Nichols of Nichols on Hockey wrote that Elliotte Friedman felt the Toronto Maple Leafs and forward William Nylander are not close on a contract extension. He said on Sportsnet 960 Thursday that articles written about this negotiation dragging into September might not be far off base. h...

Re: 2019 UFA

And likely we'll lose a vet and his contract via the NHL expansion draft in a couple years, which will probably be one of these guys:

Eriksson, Sutter, Roussel, Beags.

Just noticed with the Sedins gone, this team has no players with a NMC in their contract. :thumbs:

E. Karlsson -> Canucks

If a team can keep Horvat, Boeser, Pettersson, Hughes and Demko - I'd trade for EK.

Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

Gonna guess some team will claim Gaunce and his $750K, then in time he'll be claimed again by another team, and he'll bounce around a few teams before becoming a career ahl/nhler for his pro career, his size will help him stick longer in the pros. He just doesn't have that gritty play coaches love f...

Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

Gaunce would likely get claimed in my opinion. I guess that's the main divergence in opinion between us. To me, there is 0 chance Gaunce gets claimed. There's too many low-end projects in the league for anyone to bother putting in a waiver claim. He was (IMO, and I'm confident any statistical measu...

I'd say the perfect partner for Hughes next year would be a big fella who has skills and who could be available 2019 UFA? A one Tyler Myers - sign him 6 years, re-sign Edler for 2-3 years while Juolevi strengthens his game. Your 2019/2020 Canucks D-core: Edler - Stecher Hughes - Myers Juolevi - Gud...

2019 UFA

Yes a long ways away but it could be a banner year for UFA's, especially since the Tavares waves will continue as younger star players could continue that trend of - hmm where do I want to play as a UFA? https://nationalpost.com/sports/hockey/nhl/the-john-tavares-effect-why-a-wave-of-nhl-stars-could...

Re: Apparent contradiction?

The Sedins are gone, they played the majority of minutes up front including the powerplay, the signing of depth vets is to help transition in the youth so they can play in a scoring role where there was a big hole left by the twins. A good read on the waiver status of Canucks players: https://canuck...
