I'm not being negative when I contend that replacing 100% of fossil fuel use worldwide tomorrow with power of unicorn farts is unlikely. I'm simply being realistic. So are Reefer and Mondi.


So in essence you're saying it's IMPOSSIBLE that the Canucks acquire Letang.

And you're saying that equates to being "realistic"?? :lol:

I consider the following to be "big" trades:

2nd/3rd for Steve Bernier
White/Rahimi for Ehrhoff/Lukowich
Grabner/Bernier/1st for Ballard/Oreskovich
Samuelsson/Sturm for Booth
Hodgson/Sulzer for Kassian/Gragnani

What does it take for you to consider it a big trade?

Maybe Hodgson but can any of those compare to trading Edler?

Ballard now does not look like a big trade but an overpayment.

All the above really were spare parts for spare parts.

Edit - well that was weird, my post got blended in your quotes

Championship teams build through the draft and supplement the edges through trades.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Hodgson... but you don't consider trading any 1st round pick to be a big trade? Or acquiring Ehrhoff?

You and I obviously have different ideas of what constitutes a big trade.

(I hope Rumsfeld is happy.)

This

The core is in place, but many of the supplements are putrid.

From my point of view a straight up trade of Edler, signed for eternity, for Letang with one year left, would be a fair deal.

But I don't see MG making Letang the highest paid player on the team even though he was willing to give that honour to Weber. Now if Pitt let us talk to Letang first and we got a deal worked out then I could see giving more than Edler.

you guys are bullying me, I am going to tell the mods.

Yea so I don't think swapping 1st round picks as a block buster especially one that was forced.

Regarding Letang, can the Canucks afford him and still afford to ice a team without scrubs on the 4th line.

His cap hit is only 3.5 this year. So ya we could afford him if we cleared out the other dead wood contracts and especially if we traded Edler to get him. Luongo gone, Edler gone, Ballard gone. Heck we could still keep Booth. Although if we traded Edler to get him I'd like to keep Ballard at least for this season. He can be bought out next year.

Now that I think about it just getting rid of Luongo and trading Edler and we would be fine this year. Next year however is another story. But with the cap going up and maybe the twins taking a million less each...well you get the idea.

Heck under my scenario we could still afford to sign Vinny to a 5 million hit. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Luongo and Edler take care of 10.3 million. Booth and Ballard can be bought out next year if we have to do so. Nw we still need a back up, and a 4th line.

Rumour in twitterverse is that Clutterbuck is available.

He would look great on our third line!

Yeah he's an asshole, I hate the guy as well. Mainly cause he's not on our team!

Having the guy that routinely leads the league in hits on our team would be huge. He'd make a ton of room out there for his linemates.

Hmmmm, spot duty with the twins comes to mind as well. Perhaps Burrows for Clutterbuck.
