With Eriksson not helping the team win, and JB's job on the line I don't see a situation where we keep this boat anchor of a contract for another two years.

Lucic fills a need for the Canucks lacking aggression and has quite a few skinny guys coming onto the team soon (Gaudette, Madden) or is already on the team like Petey and Sutter, along with the plethora of avg sized wingers in Baertschi, Goldy, Granlund - OR simply just lack aggression like Pearson, Leivo, Boeser.

The only players on this team with any jam is Virtanen and Motte + injured Roussel.

Every team needs balance of skill, size, aggression and speed, Lucic fills that hole on the Canucks with his size and aggression, especially with Roussel out till Xmas at best & won't be the same till 2020 I bet.

Eriksson "helps teams win" much more than Lucic.

Eriksson is still a useful player on the third line.

We can get a player to do what Looch does for a third the cap/term

... and without a NMC.

Two years from now there will be other forwards you will want to protect in the X draft.

I suspect that any trade that brings in a vet with term of more than 2 years will be under the condition that any NTC or NMC will be waived prior to the expansion draft.

AND if the sweetener for Lucic is swapping #10 for #8 the Canucks got a real shot at one of Zegras, Dach or Cozens, that is if Podkolzin, Caufield, Boldy or Bro go before #8.

Imagine the Canucks top two lines of:

Petey - Boeser
Horvat - Cozens

shiiiiit that's worth the trade in itself.

I can't see any of Zegras, Dach or Cozens reaching #10.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

No shit. The guy has been an unmitigated disaster here.

His play is uglier than Rocky Dennis flipping out on shrooms wearing a prom dress

Eriksson pisses everyone off cause everyone has seen what he can do when "HE", feels like it.
It's retarded. He's got a wicked snap shot and uses it 2 or 3 times a year.
He'll stand in the dirty area round the crease and bang in about 3 goals a year.
The capability is there. He isn't. Fucking space cadet. Tests?

sorry

We have to give Eriksson his due. He has united this board!
The only HW the Canucks need

I agree with the swapping of the 10 and 8 being worth it depending on the board, could be the difference of getting a Quinn Hughes or being stuck with Zadina. Zegras is who I’m salivating over and maybe a Broberg

I have no idea. Did it?

I'm basically saying that we won't see something like Loui for Looch if the latter comes with his full NMC.

Who said anything about anyone being wacky? There you go putting words into people's posts again!

I don't want Lucic, nor would I be upset if that's how we unloaded Eriksson.

But there you go putting words into people's posts again!
