SKYO, I pity your team when they face mine, but I’ll still cheer for them, as has been my habit for the last few years.
Hey, at least the Canucks will get a good shot at Hughes next year which seems to be your goal based on your team construction, but I’ll still be thinking they could have made the playoffs if they’d listened to the master team builder instead of the master trader.
Nope my team would smoke your team, you have Gaunce and Reaves on your 2nd line? The only thing you got going is Carlson, and he'd only come here maybe if he gets like $9M per, otherwise he'll take a discount to stay in Washington or some other true contender. Reaves will probably get overpaid like Matt Martin did with the Leafs thanks to his run with Vegas.

My squad is full of young hungry players with nothing to lose thanks to a rebuilding years status with the Sedins retired, plus have lot of cap space and extra picks, I'm loading up for any solid trade that comes the Canucks way.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Fine, I’ll compromise, sign Green and Reaves, if JC can’t be got.
Keep the rest of the cap space for deals that might pop-up.
But keep what limited team depth the Canucks have instead of trading it for Karlsson.
Green can be a place holder while hopefully 7oa develops.
Or maybe Karlsson goes to UFA next year.
However, in return for my compromise, they must play Pettersson at centre instead of wing.
On that point I’m inflexible.

As for Hanifin, if there was any chance of that happening it won't now thanks to Elliotte leaking it, the best time for a deal to happen is before every other team knows about it.

You hear about that after a big deal happens, some teams saying they didn't like that they weren't informed such and such player was available, seems typically a team will set out to target a handful of teams who have something they need, and they try to make a deal for em.

It is a fact that many GM's leak a player being traded to Vancouver in order to drive up their price to another team.
Any leak to Vancouver gets mucho media coverage which helps those GMs try to start a bidding war.
You would never hear about Hanifin being a stealth trade to Dallas or Arizona. What's the point if their is never any media response.
Carolina is just using Elliot for their own purposes.

If a team gives up on a player like Hanafin you have to question why.
Makes me suspicious that the team that drafted him doesn’t want him.
They have the closest look at him and may have identified issues that other teams are not aware of.
It's possible they're merely thinking ahead to the 2020 expansion draft.

As it stands they will only be able to protect three of their four young top-4 dmen.

They probably view Vancouver as not having a defenceman worth protecting other than Juolevi. Unless Tryamkin returns.

Or they're dealing from a position of strength to address another area of their roster. Haydn Fleury and Jake Bean are on the way, and are also LHD.

Tanev is not worth protecting? (assuming we don't trade him -> he will obviously be extended)

The Guds is also well worth protecting (you silly man).

Juolevi will be exempt btw, and Tryamkin as well I think, if he stays in the KHL until that contract expires.

We have other dmen who could possibly play themselves into protection-worthy status by then.
