These Canucks, yes - I'm assuming you're old enough to remember what happened when Naslund got a cheap shot.

Aaah yes.

Fucking right. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer rat. Problem with this franchise is it’s always gone to either extreme when it comes to toughness and protecting each other. You know the league won’t do it. A nice balance would be good one of these days.

Still won’t shed a tear for that rat-fuck’s career - or lack thereof.

Would have been nice if someone did it to Marchand after punching Daniel - maybe after the 2nd punch, or 3rd or 4th - maybe after the 5th or 6th...

Acquiring the un-signed RFA Nick Ritchie would bring that nice balance.

Ritchie - Horvat - Boeser
Pettersson line.
Roussel - Sutter - Virtanen
Schaller

Gudbranson

Just enough to handle the rigors of the NHL, and hey if we are going to lose this season, might as well go down swinging.

ANA would want more than just Eriksson for a late pick?

Nick Ritchie’s bargaining position got a whole lot better with Perry going down. If Anaheim still can’t sign him, with the implied message that they would rather choose a prospect under contract than deal with him, why wouldn’t Benning see about getting him? Throw in Eriksson and Motte and see what Anaheim says. If they don’t want to move towards Ritchie’s camp’s position now, they are not likely to do so once the season starts. Sure the kid isn’t super fast, but having him and Virtanen flanking somebody like Gaudette in the future is worth a gamble over the same old-same old or hoping someone like Motte will fit the bill as the club moves out of the basement.

A little portly for one so young. Wonder what he looks like in the future.

Anaheim is not trading Ritchie for Eriksson and Motte

Eriksson has negative value

What is a realistic value, (in dollars only), For LE.
I will say 3.8
There may be a team or two that would go 4.2
This is of course if he was a free agent right now.

Nick Ritchie has had a better development process in duckland than Jake Virtanen has in nuckland !!!
Even at that, his #s are only slightly better and even they are misleading.
Ritchie has had ample opportunity and what has Jake got?
A year in the minors with Green, (an unmitigated disaster).
Most of a year in and out of the press box in the NHL with Green, (a c'hair better result).
Now if you can acquire Ritchie in a manor that relieves us of unwanted ICK, great, but;
I wouldn't dare give him more than a bridge deal, no way.
