Do you want the Canucks to pursue Tyler Myers in a trade?

Post by Betamax »

First off, I was specifically PMed by Moderator Cornuck to consolidate the Tyler Myers' to Vancouver Talk to one thread. So if you have an issue with this thread, take it up with him, not me. 8-)

The Tyler Myers-to -Canucks talk is all over the draft floor. Doesn’t mean it’s going to happen, but there is a lot of buzz.

The Canucks have tabled an offer to the Buffalo Sabres for Myers, and it includes the No. 24 overall pick.
Posted yesterday: This was NBC Hockey Analyst, Pierre McGuire's speculation on one of the reasons why the Canucks' traded Garrison:

Pierre McGuire was just on TEAM Radio speculates that the Canucks' might be going after a top young defenseman. None other than Tyler Myers.

Yes the same guy that Canucks Corner's Hockey Analyst, Betamax, mentioned as a guy the Canucks' should target (as documented on this board) weeks ago!

What say you? :mex:

NBC's Pierre McGuire says #Canucks might have cleared cap space to try & acquire #Sabres D Tyler Myers. $5.5M cap hit, 5 yrs remaining.

:D
Obviously, the offer was rejected.

But it doesn't mean the Canucks' can't still manage to pull a trade with the Sabres in the future. What would or could the Canucks trade that would appeal to the Sabres for them to accept a trade? In a previous post, I speculated maybe the 2015 1st round pick (that would be a huge leap of faith that the Canucks' aren't going to be in the lottery if you are GMJB) or a roster player like Tanev. :mex:

Perhaps if it was a part of a swap for Reinhart in some package deal. $5.5 is a bad contract.

Absolutely yes.

6'8 players that have top 2 potential don't grow on trees.

At age 24, Myers still has a lot of learning and maturing to do before hitting the defensemen sweet spot of age 28 so whatever warts he currently has can absolutely be addressed.

You can teach someone to be a better defensemen. You can't teach someone to be 6'8.

I remember myers getting in a scrum around the net versus Philly and he ragdolled Pronger around like he was a baby. Not to mention his 40 pt season before Buffalo fully fell apart. I'd be all for trying to acquire him and iron the Buffalo out of his game.

Well, I don't think there are any off-ice attitude/discipline issues.

The guy was born in the USA (where the competition is easier to make it to the National team) but chose to represent Canada. That's a big positive, IMO.

Obviously, consistency has been an issue since his ROY form but another positive is that another team, i.e. Red Wings and Holland and Co. have shown significant interest in him.

I mean if the other team interested in Myers was Garth Snow / NYI, I'd be just a little bit worried, ya know? :mex:

Trade market prices remained extremely high through #NHL draft. # Sabres ask for Tyler Myers was 3 pièces including a 1st round pick.

In chopping Ryan Kesler and Jason Garrison from their payroll Friday, the Vancouver Canucks' re-tooling has been fast and furious - but they may not be done.

NBC's Pierre McGuire is suggesting the club has cleared enough cap space in order to take a serious run at Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers, via Matthew Sekeres of Team 1040.

The towering puck-mover, who certainly meets the criteria coveted by general manager Jim Benning, carries a $5.5 million cap hit for five more seasons.

The Canucks shed nearly $10 million off their roster Friday, including $4.6 million over the next four years owed to Garrison.

During UFA free agency day, have their been significant trades made? If the Canucks trade for Myers and it involves their 2015 1st rounder, you gotta think they are going to spend a lot on veteran help (i.e. Goaltending etc.) to make sure they have a realistic shot at making the Playoffs for the obvious reason. :mex:

I wouldn't mind getting our own version of Big Z. What about Edler for Myers? Both could use a change in scenery.

Edler would enforce his NTC if asked to waive to go to the Sabres. Besides, GMJB is rather bullish on Edler, so I don't see him being moved.

I'd imagine the roster player going there might be someone like Hansen as his NTC doesn't come into effect until July 1st, and you'd have to think he'd have the Sabres on his "do not trade me to" list. :mex:

I would rather keep Edler and add Myers. That would give the Canucks some size to play against the big forwards in the West.

Tanev would have to be part of the package going the other way imesho.

Too bad my ole pal GM is gone, the guy is in love with Myers. :hmmm:
