Off the top I could be wrong on experience levels etc, but...


Protect 7 forwards:
Horvat
Sutter
Baertschi
Virtanen
(new forward from trade)
Granlund
Goldy

expose: Eriksson, Gagner, Gaunce, Archi, Boucher.

Protect 3 dmen:
Tanev
Stecher
Holm

expose: Hutton, Pouliot

Protect Demko
expose Marky

Sedins will retire either this offseason or for sure by 2019 offseason, I have my doubts on Guds if he'll be here, Tanev could even be dealt sooner or later, Edler and MDZ might be dealt, all I know is the defense needs some massive changes to get better...try to emulate the Predators, which means drafting good dmen, making a blockbuster move to attain a top tier dman yadayada.

We should probably protect that Boeser kid. I think he might turn out to be OK and, if the rules are the same as they were for Vegas, I believe he would need protection.

Hell, if the expansion rules are the same, with only 1st and 2nd year players exempt, the Canucks will likely NOT bring up a ton of kids next year, as they would be 3 year vets by the summer of 2021, and we would be in tight to protect them all. This is assuming the expansion happens in 2021, and not 2020, as Seattle is hoping for. They have a ton of work to do on their arena before 2020, and the timeline is pretty tight, according to some media stories.

You don't protect Boeser!?!?!

Tanev' contract will be up by 20-21 no?
The only HW the Canucks need

Well looks like we'll see at least a couple trades by the 26th.

Benning says he's talked to every GM and hopes to be active at the trade deadline. #Canucks

Benning did indicate as to what Friedman and McKenzie have been saying recently - teams are reluctant to give up picks and prospects at the deafline, in that picks and prospects are like gold. Followed that by saying that even teams in a playoff spot are not willing to give up picks and prospects for rentals like they used to

Think this TDL is going to be 'under'-whelming.

As usual, despite the hype. And if we get a 4th or 5th for DelZero, we'll be ahead - don't see much else happening.

Take the day off work, glue yourself to couch flipping between TSN and SPAC while reloading the trade trackers on your laptop and checking for news feeds on your phone.

The day is always boring.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Sometimes the best trades are like two days or a day before the actual trade deadline day ha, pissing off TSN and SN.

I fully expect Benning, armed with a new multi-year contract, to pull off a huge trade in the coming weeks to salvage what is turning out to be an underwhelming season.

If Granlund is protected for the Seattle expansion draft Elmer will be long gone.

He’s a borderline NHL player yet some on here spin cart wheels that he can score at a low end third line level while getting fed 18 minutes a game.

Point is you're hallucinating (again).

Who exactly is "spinning cart wheels about Granlund" in your alcohol induced fantasies?

You talk about "lacking a point" whilst smashing strawmen of your own making, I'll call you a cab...
