Yeah, I remember that one. Evander really gave it to the super pest Cooker. Evander can take take care of himself, no doubt. What do u expect from a guy named after Hollyfield? However, I see him more as a skilled player. No doubt he has more offensive upside than Kassassian, but I think Zack is more of a meat and potatoes power forward type... the type of guy that we need more of, not less.

My gut tells me Evander wants to play here, so if he doesn't come here via trade, I think in a few years he'll be really interested to hear what Vancouver has to offer once he's a free agent. Much like Hammer. :P

I think it is painfully obvious to everyone by now that Booth is toast here. I like the idea of moving him for Erat if we could. Get him off the team and see if Erat can bring anything to the third or 4th line heading into the home stretch and playoffs. A one for one swap. He certainly can't do any worse than a Booth.

Couldn't hurt to try it. I'm surprised Booth hasn't asked for a trade yet, he just doesn't fit in on this team and won't anytime soon. At least he only has next year left on his deal.

This is actually one of the things that surprises me. He is going into the last year of his contract, and one has to think that he would want to maximize his chances of getting a new deal somewhere that isn't a massive cut in pay. Based on his last few season's performances I can't see him making more than half of what he is currently getting. So why not ask for a trade when it is abundantly clear that this is just not the right fit.

I'd be very surprised if they hadn't already tried to trade Booth. Who's going to take him? His salary makes him virtually untradeable, even if Gillis was willing to retain some salary we would most likely have to add. Better off just holding onto him and buying out in the offseason. I think an Erat for Booth swap would be worth a shot for both teams.

No thanks to Erat. This team needs some bigger bodies for the third and 4th lines, not smaller ones and ERat is not good enough to play in the top 6.

Booth will have to be dealt in the off season. The one buyout remaining will be used on Luongo. Kind of a blessing that Booth was injured last summer and didn't get bought out. Then we would be stuck with Luongo's contract until he retired. Thanks a lot Burke you fat cunt.

That's what the Great Strangelove has been saying since the Schneider trade. :mex:

I'd rather stick w/ Booth than bring in Erat...but thats not saying much.

Almost no chance Luongo gets bought out, get serious. That option ended when Schneider was dealt. If Aqua wouldn't shell out last year do you really think he will a year later and w/ Cory gone to boot? Booth is only tradable if there's a team trying to hit the cap floor, which is a possibility. Most likely he'll be bought out though.

Luongo is untradeable because of the huge penalties for back diving contracts which will kick in when he retires early . We can thank Burke and Bettman for that. If they would have grandfathered the contracts in there wouldn't be as much difficulty dealing him . It must also be obvious to anyone with half a brain that he doesn't want to be here anymore. The buyout would cost Aquilini about 1.8 million a year for the next decade and a half . Chump change really

That's just stupid. Luongo isn't going to be bought out, nor should he. You don't buyout players who are actually playing well, like Luongo, and living up to his cap hit.

That's somewhat comparable to M.Richards for Simmonds+Schenn+2nd.


No way I move the big falla right now, he's starting to come to his own. I would't even do Kassassian for E.Kane 1 for 1.


That's a little crazy too. Kane is younger than Kassian, and is a proven 30 goal scorer already. Kassian hasn't even hit double digits in goals as of yet. In fact, Kassian likely doesn't even get 20 points this season.

No you are just stupid..... But that isn't my point. It's the fucking contract and the implications and penalties that will be attached to the Canucks when he retires early . Luongo has played ok but that isn't the point. It's the future pain of the contract and the fact he doesn't want to be here long term
