I provided evidence of this in another post awhile back...

Oops. I just used the waiver calculator at capgeek and is says 1 year or 25 games remaining in his exemption, but I see now that doesn't include 2013-14.

That sucks then, and I can see us running with Lack/Markstrom.

Apparently Tallon is open to trading the #1 overall pick...just when Gilly got fired. :P

Maybe Benning can offer up the #6 overall plus a one of our dmen, wonder if Garrison would waive his NTC to go back.

Seeing how good these goalies are playing in the playoffs makes me want Schneider back asap.

Plus how Lack performed after Luongo got traded makes me want Schneider back with the Canucks that much more.

Hoping CS declines a contract extension so the devils can trade him, where I'd offer Lack + a pick for CS.

CS will get a monster contract offer from the Devils. They have to. They have been spoiled with great goaltending and I don't see them letting him go. It would be great if he became a FA and came back but he is a Boston boy and NJD is closer to home than Vancouver.

Yeah, I just listened to the audio on that and he sounds serious.

Said he's not just listening to offers, said he's actively shopping the pick.

Said they have a lot of young players and need some solid vets to help them along.

Said he's got the green light from the new owners to spend to the cap.

Rumours are that he wants Nikolaj Ehlers, who should definitely be there at the #6 spot.

Panthers main need is an established Top Four dee.

And your Vancouver Canucks have one to spare.

#1 overall (take Reinhart) for #6 overall + Edler + ??

This is the trade fantasy thread right? :mex:

I would ideally like the Canucks to come up with a package that lets them keep the 6th pick as well (then draft Virtanen), but if the 6th pick is what would get it done, then so be it. Edler is likely the only significant piece the Canucks could realistically offer and there likely would have to be more to it.

If they can swing it, though, I would go for Ekblad over Bennett - especially if they have to send Edler the other way. Ekblad could anchor the blueline for the next couple of years.

Did Tallon say anything about wanting to get a 1st round pick back this year?

Edler + Higgins + Corrado + 2nd would probably get it done.

Then draft Ekblad and whoever is available at the 6th overall.

Suddenly our youth looks like: Jensen, Gaunce, Fox, Cassels, Horvat, Shinkaruk, Ekblad, Ritchie/Virtanen/Dal Colle.....

Yeah.....if wishes were fishes. That package wouldn't get it done.

Ekblad over Reinhart, Meds? Terrible! You don't pass up on a high IQ, super skilled. 6'-1", 200 lb centre from Vancouver for Ekblad. Plain stupid. Ekblad isn't Norris trophy material

Reinhart and Horvat as your 1 & 2 centres for the next decade is very appealing

I wasn't overly impressed with Reinhart at the WJC's.....although that could be said about most of Canada's roster.

It's also the only time I've seen him play, so I didn't really look into him much after that. I thought he was smaller than that. He looked to be closer to 5'-11", 170lbs.....so I was thinking to stay away from smaller guys right now.

The other thing I considered is that, despite what the team is saying right now, there is a better than average chance that we will be drafting in the top 14 again next season, trading up into the top 10 gives us a shot at some legitimate centers. The top 10 prospects, as it stands now, has 6 centers in the list. Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel, Colin White, Matt Barzal, Daniel Sprong, and Dylan Strome. Only one defenseman in that list that sounds like he's going to be a top pairing guy, and that is Noah Hanifin.

Reinhart as of now is 6'-1" 190 lbs.

The kid is extreme smart and slick with the puck, sees the ice extremely well, doesn't give up possession easy. Very patient with the puck and can separate himself from opposing players with ease. He isn't Connor McDavid flashy, he's more like Hank Sedin but a better nose for scoring than Hank.

Ekblad is a decent d-man, good in all areas but not great in any one area. Hes not Doughty like star potential.

Canucks can get their offensive minded defenseman Christian Ehrhoff replacement when they trade Kesler to the Pens for Pouliot.
