As I mentioned before, the Canucks need an offensive defenseman.

Del Zotto, 292GP, 26G (8 of the 26 were powerplay goals), 95A, -4, 0.41ppg
Tanev, 143GP, 7G, 16A, +19, 0.16ppg.

1. Tanev > Zotto defensively but Zotto > Tanev offensively
2. Zotto is younger than Tanev
3. Zotto used to play for Torts


If the Canucks need (another) offensive defenseman, trade Garrison or Edler.

In the NHL nowadays you cannot trade your young, cheap useful players and expect to be competitive.

BTW, over the last two seasons Del Zotto has 5 goals, 27 assists and 32 points in 88 games played. Tanev has 7 goals, 13 assists and 20 points in 89 games played, plus he is defensively one of our most consistent players. Tanev’s production is clearly on the upswing, while Del Zotto has been in and out of coach’s doghouses and has seen a massive dip inhis offensive production. Not to mention Tanev is a RHS.

Torts loves Tanev, btw.

Tanev won't be cheap next season with his new contract and imho he will get a crap load of injuries when he's a little older as he's always getting rocked into the boards all the time.

Sell high!

I said before, Tanev developing could make Hamhuis expendable.

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

Exactly.

Tanev will be a RFA this year and is not a big offensive contributor, which means he'll still be cheap compared to our 'Top 4'.

Trade Hamhuis so we can keep Edler and Tanev? :o

And thanks to the olympics, everyone wants hammy now.

Is a concussion better than a hammy?

I said developing, I did not say he's there yet.

You should be a politician.

ok hypothetically speaking, say we had to trade Tanev cause he wants $5M per or something ludicrous, what could we get for him?
Jamie McGinn?
6'1", 210 lbs. 25 yrs old LW, from Ontario.
Can play a sound defensive game and also displays streaky goal-scoring ability. Works very hard when on the ice and is also quite versatile up front.

There's no need to trade Hamhuis at this point as we can afford all of them quite easily now and going forward.

I think you may look at moving a guy like Hamhuis or Bieksa a year or two from now.

I have been building a non voters list for several years.

I wonder if there is any chance at all the Sedins would be willing to waive their NTC's? I really wish we didn't sign those albatross contracts.

Traded Hodgson for Kassian, which at the time was pretty crazy.

Cojones, yes. Brains, not so much.

Not to me.


So you're one of those guys who thinks a team contending for the Cup with offensive problems in the playoffs should be trading a skilled, young, offensive producing C for futures?

We were contending for the Cup? With the Sedins as our most important part of our offense? :lol:

Kassian gives bandaids. Hodgson wears them.

Given this teams' injury history, do you really think Hodgson survives more than one playoff round in the Pacific division?
