Sooooo.....

Outside of perhaps Matthias, maybe Kulikov and Petrovic, nobody that would interest any other GM unless they want to absorb an absurd contract or get the player for a song. Tallon better dance a pretty step to get out of the corner into which he painted himself. Hope some other gives him some prison love as a result, and I wouldn't be disappointed if that GM was Gillis.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

A post on CDC said the Jets were considering offers for Kane. http://forum.canucks.com/topic/353474-s ... nder-kane/
Not happy in Winnipeg apparently.

The Blackhawks acquired Kris Versteeg from the Florida Panthers...

Along with Versteeg, the Blackhawks have also acquired Phillippe Lefebrve and will send Jimmy Hayes and Dylan Olsen to Florida. The Panthers will take on half of Versteeg's remaining salary.

Yup all it took was Florida retaining 50% salary on Versteeg to get it done!

From Florida I'd trade Tanev for Matthias or Drew Shore.

Then trade Booth for Heatley with Wild retaining 30% of his salary, Dany is a low risk - high reward type, as this is his contract year, a change of scenery could do wonders for him.
If it doesn't work out, oh well he walks at seasons end and we get out of Booth's contract. :thumbs:

Fuck Skyo, you would trade Tanev for Matthias or Shore? That's smart. Lets weaken our defence with a great contributor in Tanev to fix something else with players whom are a big giant unknown guess that very well may not fix that something else. Round round we go.

Trading with a team with a culture of losing has been really good for Gillis in the past. Those players in Florida know what it takes to win

If gillis has bold moves in his blood as he claims I'd explore Evander Kane. 2014 is a weak draft class, throw in Gaunce and Kassian

Let's face it Kassian ain't working. We need help now in the top 6.

Kane is as young as Kassian almost but Kane is top 6 scoring threat and is as gritty as Kassian. Kassian will never be top 6. Park booths contract in the minors, buy him out. Trade our 1st pick in 2014 as well to sweeten the pot. It's a shite draft class. We got loads of young centre prospects offer up Gaunce or Schroeder. Cassels and Horvat bleed Canuck blue down the middle.

Or like Skyo pointed out we could do another gillis fan favourite trade for a mean nothing bottom 6 player like Roy and Pahlsson and get a 3rd line centre like Matthias who is without question the answer to our scoring woes and eventual Stanley cup

Is Kane Able to Hammer Booth
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Haha. So basically trade a shitty first round pick (late in the round in a weak draft) plus a couple of prospects we don't want for the other team's first liner.

Park Booth in the minors (giving us less than a million in space) to free up room for this.

Shit man, I'd be pissed off too if I thought this was in any way realistic and our GM was inexplicably just sitting on his hands instead of adding a high end impact player in exchange for odds and ends.
