If the Canucks get Reaves, and Pettersson makes the team, Reaves' value will be maximized by having him ride shotgun with Pettersson and discouraging the sorts of play that will shorten Pettersson's career.

If Gagner can help, that's great, but it's not enough to count on if Pettersson really is the future of the franchise.
Once Pettersson takes over centre, maybe Reaves can ride shotgun at times.

A guy like Reaves can discourage crap, even if he's not on that line.

Try to have The Guds out there with Pettersson 5-on-5.

And maybe keep Baertschi and Goldobin thisaway...


Baertschi – Horvat – Boeser
Goldie/Dahlen – Gagner – Pettersson
Lipstick – Sutter – Virtanen
Gaunce – Gaudette – Reaves
Goldie/Dahlen

Goldie/Dahlen rotate, trade Granlund, Eriksson.

Have to agree with Blob on this one, who would take his contract?

I've posted a few times about that.

Trade him to a team that is concerned about the bottom line?

After July 1st his average salary works out to just $3.5M-per (with a $6M cap hit of course).

Loui is an elite experienced defensive forward

... who is still capable of providing secondary scoring in the right situation.

BTW how many times have people said certain contracts are untradeable, only to see them traded.

HW said rumour is Eriksson might get traded this summer...

He’s most definitely tradeable but that doesn’t mean the return will be good. But since he was a free asset, nothing ventured nothing gained. I suspect if Benning doesn’t like the offers, I mean if they suck balls, he will hang onto him as that all important veteran presence. This is the last season of the full NMC in any event. One more year at 6 million cap isn’t going to hurt us.
The only HW the Canucks need

A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Canucks re-sign Reid Boucher to a one-year, two-way contract.

Depth signing...

Sounds like Boucher camp was demanding a one-way. Benning doesn't budge.

The kid has absolutely no bargaining power, so Benning says you wanna get paid? Earn a spot in Vancouver

*Of note: RB's last contract was a one-year, one-way deal.

Yeah that Elmer he’s a cool customer. Reminds me of Steve McQueen in the Great Escape.
