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.
The only HW the Canucks need

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?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Trouba would be dope, however it's too bad Hamonic wasn't on the Rangers instead as I can see Edler waiving hjs NTC to play with AV again in NYC.

Senators going all in, so Vrbata + Weber throw-in for Chiasson + Wiercioch (both said to be avail, buy ultra low, both over 6'4, mid 20's, affordable contracts)

Burrows & Higgins to NYR - AV will vouch for Bur, and Burr will be far from Vancouver, they have a worse cap and want to dump Staal or Girardi, we'll take the least concussed dude, Girardi and Etem.

Sedins Hansen
Baertschi Sutter Virtanen
Etem Horvat Chiasson
Dorsett McCann Prust

Edler Tanev
Hutton Girardi
Wiercioch Bartkowski
Biega
Sbisa IR
Hamhuis LTIR

Funny, but I think the Sens may be a good trading partner if they think they have it to get to the conference finals. I can see Vrbata going there if they want to upgrade their firepower even though Mike Hoffman, Mark Stone, Bobby Ryan, Kyle Turris, MacArthur and Zibanejad are nothing to sniff at. Even so, Benning may have to take back a contract like Michalek's in that event though he has a limityed NTC. If Ottawa wants to shore up their bottom-6, I can see them looking at a guy like Hansen.

In terms of what Ottawa would offer and what Benning would want, Weiercoch and Cowen may be available but it's not like Ottawa has prospects in the system to readily replace those guys and may not be keen to take any of the shit-shows in Vancouver beyond Edler, Tanev and Hutton. Depending on Hamhuis' status at the TDD he may be valuable to Ottawa if they think they can make a run. As for forwards, Chiasson may be worth looking at but looking at his age and production to date I dunno.

More like this would be 'vet for picks', 'vet and prospect for picks' or 'vet for bad contract and picks'. With that in mind, I could see a Vrbata/Hansen+ 2nd rd pick for Michalek and/or 1st rd pick and/or Puempel/Chabot.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.
