Shea Weber: Great defense man with one of the most dreaded shots ever!
He battles weight gain. Not sure if that may be connected to, or making worse, the type of injuries and coinciding surgeries.

^ do you have a source for the Weber weight issues? This is the first I’ve heard of this.

There are some bad jokes on the net.
Other than that, I don't need a link. Why? Because I have eyes.

The old Weber in the old NHL was good, the latest Weber in the new NHL is extremely overrated

Weber got mad skills though, besides his injury filled season last season, the 4 seasons prior he avg 48pts per.

In any case I'm liking trying to acquire Faulk, he'd be more affordable anyways and is available as the Canes on the right side D now have Hamilton, Pesce, TVR and Fox along with Faulk who needs a change of scenery.

And I feel the Canucks really need that big gunner on the right side, Faulk fits the mold.

EDLER - FAULK
HUGHES - TANEV

That top 4 next season would be stupendous, definitely the scoring infusion the team needs to give it a jolt to life again not seen since Hoffer was here and/or Lumme, Salo, Brown etc.

Faulk.

The latest NHL defenseman whose picture is on SKYO's ceiling.

Nope Parayko yo ha.

Just realistically Faulk is available and reasonable for a trade and he fits the Canucks top 4.



Newell Brown would jizz his pants if the Canucks got Faulk, like what the Faulk man.

Rumours abound that Karlsson to Tampa all but done. Some say just waiting for trade call to be done but Friedman saying it’s almost done but a few tweaks still need. No comments on what the return is.

Some speculation that a third team may be involved, perhaps NYR.

Seems one of the hold ups is that Tampa needs to move a lot of cap and a third and/or fourth team are holding things up. Tampa wants to unload Callahan but it’s what it will cost them to do that.

Callahan Has trade protection so it’s not that easy to just unload him.

Guessing Sergachev on the move again this time to the Sens, with a 3rd team taking on cap dump's and picks/prospects to help Tampa facilitate the trade.

Speculation Sergachev and or Foote plus plus plus. The triple plus because Tampa was granted permission to speak to Karlsson about a new contract which he can sign, for 8 years, immediately after deal is consummated. Imagine it would be 8x11. Of course Florida has no tax so maybe less.
