Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

It wasn’t Lou’s fault. It was the referees swallowing their whistles. No it wasnt specifically his fault but he couldnt stop a beachball when his team needed him to. He certainly didnt help Lou took a team that scored a grand total of 8 goals in a series to 7 games. Doesn't matter how many he let i...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Unless the Canucks agree to eat that $4 mil cap hit for the year. What I'm saying is I don't think the NHL would let the Canucks do that because of the precedent it would create. Don't forget Loui would collect $27-$28M of a $36M contract at the halfway point of that contract (cap circumvention?). ...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Like I say, it's just a guess, but I think the NHL would see it as Cap Circumvention. If the NHL let it go it would set a precedent. Other teams could give a big bonus in the year they and the player (wink wink nudge nudge) want to be the last year ... and arrange the contract in such a way as to t...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

I had $7M in there on the assumption he would find a way to make $2M over the rest of his career. Loui would be walking away from the $9M still owed him in his contract. And as I keep saying, I'm convinced the league would force him to pay back the $4M bonus. It's not "likely" the guy is going to w...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

so a 10.5 mil offersheet on Marner (2 firsts a second a third) cannot be matched by the Leaves unless they clear out 1.3 2.269 more within that 48 hour period. Edit - had the wrong calc - right now the most they can offer Marner and stay cap compliant over the summer is around 7.3 - anything over th...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

. Satiar Shah ‏Verified account @SatiarShah I’m still keeping an eye on the Stars as a potential destination for Loui Eriksson. Could see something involving Cogliano who has 2 years at $3.25M per left and/or Comeau who also has 2 years remaining at $2.4M per 12:09 PM - 14 Jul 2019 That's a good de...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I hope Benning holds firm. Let’s see how Louie likes Utica. Or......get out there Berry and find a market. He has permission to do so, so I’ve been told. Team might want to play they young kids in Utica - is there even room for him there? Kalamazoo might be an option? How would that be perceived in...

How long do the Devils have to sign Quinn's brother to a contract.

Someone needs to start a rumor that he's holding out to come to Vancouver.

I wonder if he still wants lacavaliier
Was that the same guy who wanted to trade the twins for Oli Jokinen so Nasund and Bert finally had a true #1C to play with.

It was him or Pauser, can't remember

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Kevin Kurz ‏ @KKurzNHL Labanc will have arbitration rights next summer as an RFA (he didn’t this summer). He really is betting on himself as Wilson phrased it. He repeats last season or improves, a big multi-year contract is in his future. But for now, this is a deal that really gives DW flexibilit...

And nobody saw the Luongo retirement coming and it surprises me that not more is being made of the Panthers pretty much admitting that they swayed Loui into retirement vs Long Term Injury to save them cap space with the nudge nudge wink wink being that he will be given a job within the organization...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Loui Eriksson is the prime example of why players being traded should have their cap hits restructured based on remaining money divided by original term. Loui Eriksson - original contract $36 mil over 6 years = $6mil per year Remaining: $9 mil over original 6 years: $1.5mil per year So the team acqu...
