Chicago waives Viktor Tikhonov. Big left winger who can't buy a point. Worth putting n a claim?
The only HW the Canucks need

Why not, only makes a mil. Couldn't be any worse than Baertschi or Vey… or even Vrbata right now.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

I think it's a low risk gamble. Honestly, I don't see him being anything special even if he was a 1st round pick. If the Canucks send McCann and Virtanen back to junior then this move would make sense.

I also think it would be a good idea to be sellers and start selling ASAP or laying the groundwork for deals at the deadline. I think the Canucks more pressing need is secondary scoring over D but both are a need. If the Canucks try to be buyers and don't move the expiring contracts at the deadline, I will be pissed. If that does happen then I am jumping right off that Benning bandwagon!

Viktor Tikhonov was claimed by the Coyotes yesterday
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

For the Edler fans, ya know who you are...
SPORTSNET: Elliotte Friedman speculates Columbus Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen could be on the move at some point this season. He’s been in head coach John Tortorella’s doghouse at times this season, though Friedman thinks it’s still possible the two can work together. If not, he suggests the Nashville Predators, St. Louis Blues or Vancouver Canucks could be interested as they’re in need of a No. 1 center. If the Jackets decide to move him, however, what will they seek for a return?

SPECTOR’S NOTE: You’re talking about trading a first-line center. The Blue Jackets won’t get a comparable player in return, so the asking price could be at least a good young player (perhaps a defenseman, as they’ve been seeking a top-four rearguard for some time), a top prospect and a first-round pick. If the Predators were to offer up, say, Seth Jones or Roman Josi, or the Blues dangled Kevin Shattenkirk, or the Canucks Alex Edler, the Blue Jackets could jump all over that.

And then we are set for centers for eternity (eternity meaning 10-15 years) if this blockbuster would ever go down.

Oh yeah Skyo/Spector... Edler would definitely waive for a chance to play for Torts again! :lol:

And like most Swedes, he loves Ohio....

Yeahno, Fried Man loves to pull stuff out his bottom and watch folks lap it up.

But now that you mention it, Topper did tell me that Johansen wants to "come home" to Vancouver. :mrgreen:

Yes true but he has an agreement from the Canucks to act as though his NTC is in effect now. It was one of his requests before he signed his new deal and JB gave his word. For all intense and purposes, he has a NTC now.

Hansen, Edler and a something from the used but not worn out parts bin for Trouba?

When your fantasy is over does the dominatrix let you out of the dungeon?
