Pauser wants the Canucks to force Luongo to stay.

He also wants the Canucks to tank to the point of ensuring a top 3 draft pick in 2015. :drink:

Teams don't intentionally tank to get top picks. They get them because they suck. This isn't the 80's when you could tank for Mario and it wouldn't do much to the bottom line, this is big business and you need to make money every year. Teams that suck don't make money.

Luongo literally saved the game for us last night against undoubtedly the worst team in the league and in our own barn. We buy him out we are strong contenders for the Connor McDavid/Jack Echel sweepstakes in next years draft......hmmmm come to think of it, buying out Lous contract might be a good thing.

Sorry RD, intentionally tanking is something this Canuck administration will never do.

However, I wouldn't mind adverse to making a blockbuster with Buffalo (or any other team not named Calgary and Edmonton) for the first over all pick.

And maybe a trade with Toronto for Connor Brown.

And have a core of Connor McDavid, Connor Brown and Bo Horvat going forward. :)

What would it take to get Campbell 50% retained?

Luongo haha..seriously.

If you guys ever want to see a Stanley Cup championship in Vancouver before we die, signing Vanek to a big contract will definitely increase those odds and probabilities of that happening.

That and getting a true Norris trophy type dman, for which we don't have right now.

Chara, Keith, Lidstrom, Pronger...somewhat Doughty all key's to the game for recent cup winners, on top of their teams having elite snipers/scorers.

Edler for Dubinsky+?

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Dubinsky - Kesler - Kassian
Higgins - Santorelli - Hansen
Sestito - Richardson - Weise

Dubinsky - Kesler - Kane if we could land him too.

Why do so many of your trade proposals include players who have NTC's and are unlikely to waive them?

Do you just make this shit up and then try it in EA Sports where it seems to work?

"(& fantasies)"
Also, it's not impossible for someone to waive their NTC.

Or did you mean before one of us dies, because the way he posts RoyalDude's been using Old Fashioneds to fatten up his liver like a fucking French goose and could keel over any day now.

Hell, pull out all the stops!

Booth, Horvat and a first round pick for Moulson (50%), Ott (50%) and Ehrhoff!
Shinkaruk, and another first round pick for Vanek (50%)!

Sedin-Sedin-Moulson
Vanek-Kesler-Kassian
Higgins-Santorelli-Hansen
Burrows-Ott-Richardson

Hamhuis-Tanev
Edler-Ehrhoff
Garrison-Bieksa

I have fantasies but they done involve hockey players or guys at all.

With the cap going up, assume a buy out for Booth I do expect a proper UFA to be signed.

I also expect one of the NTC D men to be moved.

Lastly at least 2 prospects will have a real chance on playing on the team.

dbr throws sand in the vaseline
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
