I would do Tanev for the 10 OA + prospect.
I don’t think the Coilers would
I'd do it for Tanev straight across, maybe even sweeten the pot a tad as well.
Done and hopefully Ty Smith is there at 10
I'm another poster who would make that trade, but the 'sweetener' would have to be a player with a known ceiling who is unlikely to contribute to the final Masterpiece.

Yeah, he'll be gone for sure.

Gallant or Green?
If Gerard Gallant comes here , I may tune out for a while. He was horseshit in Columbus. He had one decent season in Florida.

He was horseshit in Columbus and had a decent year in Florida. He was known for trapping it up in C Bus. Not my style of play. He has a real good year and got his players to buy in. Good for him. See if he has some staying power.

Wait are you thinking Gallant would be a huge upgrade on Travis? This roster is an abortion. Scotty Bowman or Al Arbour would have trouble getting more out of it than Travis got.

Do you think Gallant is some super coach?

Do you agree or not agree that his record, even including this season is somewhat spotty?

At the time of the post (March 2017) I liked Gallant as a potential coach for your Vancouver Canucks

... from among those available at the time.

"Gallant or Green" I said.

You hated the idea and then he won Coach of the Year, therefore you suck. 8-)

Lehner released by Buffalo. Anderson asks for trade out of Ottawa. Karlsson expecting a trade. Martin waived for purposes of a buyout by SJS.

Early housecleaning.
The only HW the Canucks need

Lehner out in Buffalo? Wow. Perhaps we can trade Markstrom to Buffalo for the 1st OA or perhaps a midround pick?

How about Demko and the 7th OA?

If that is a serious request for the 1st OA, how about Demko, 7th OA and Tanev for 1st OA and another prospect and 2nd or 3rd round pick?

I know Buffalo probably wouldn't do that. But it is a reasonable proposal.

We should work on a package for Karlsson and Anderson. Include Markstrom or Nilsson their choice, Anderson would be a great vet for Demko to mentor with.

Karlsson, Andersson and Gaborik for 7OA 2018, 2nd 2019, Markstrom, Tanev, Gaudette, Hutton (whatever other prospect they want that aren't Bo, Boeser, Elias).

If Karlsson is the return, then I have zero problem with the 2019 1st bring in play.

Ottawa has no first next year, and desperately needs one. Canucks will at the very least vault out of the lottery, if not into the playoffs, with Karlsson.

I would also gladly take Anderson off their hands. He has 2-3 years left, which may make Demko expendable if JB has faith Dipietro.
