COL has, in fact, elected club salary arbitration on Ryan O'Reilly. Had to be filed by 5 pm ET today. And it was.

3:10 PM - 15 Jun 2014


Could be a tactic to put pressure on Ryan O'Reilly to sign a long-term deal at an AAV less than what his QO would be. :mex:

Weeeise.

@25stanley the #Canadiens have re-signed RFA Dale Weise to a two-year deal worth $2M or ($1 million AAV).

So, Josh Rimer speculates that The Real Deal is on the trading block. He speculates that the Flyers are in contention:

Evander Kane - the Winnipeg Jets once again are shopping Evander Kane. I can see him going to the Flyers in a deal for Brayden Schenn.



Well, If I'm the Canucks and all it takes is B. Schenn, I'm looking to see if you could pry Schenn out of the Flyers with either Kesler or Edler being offered and make it a three way deal. 8-)

Oddly enough, I actually do.

It was on a site called GoCanucks.com (Brian might actually remember this site because when GoCanucks go sacked, him and Chris encouraged/recruited the posters over there to join Canuckscentral).

Anyway - my very first post was in the summer of 1998.

My handle nick at the time was 'GM Wannabe'.

I proposed a three way trade idea: (my Subject heading was: "Three Way Trade Idea! - Van/Phx/NYR"

To New York Rangers: Pavel Bure
To Phoenix Coyotes: Eric Lindros
To Vancouver: Keith Tkatchuk, Oleg Tverdosky.

Botchford's opinion on why the Canucks are apparently not so high on B. Schenn:

Cole Robinson ‏@Colenuck

@botchford hey Botch, what was it about Brayden Schenn that the Canucks didn't like?

Jason Botchford ‏@botchford

No question Schenn had a tough year but hey he's only 22 and a great "buy low" candidate.

He started the season on Lecavalier's wing and ended up being Lecavalier's centre.

Lecavalier was BY FAR the biggest corsi drag on the team.

Here's a great article on Brayden Schenn's season...

http://www.broadstreethockey.com/2014/5 ... den-schenn

And I'll just mention that he hits harder and more often than probably any Canuck top 6 forward since

... well since maybe since forever.

Yes I probably should have said "potential" top 6 forward.

Safe to say the Rangers will be going after some bigtime free agents this summer.

It's almost a given that they give Stastny $7.5M per for 8 years.

They can't give 8 years. Only the team holding a players rights can give that long a term.

Brayden Schenn signed cheap. Any team would be happy to have him in the 3C spot at that price!

2 years and 5 mil
