Rumour has it Baertschi, Goldy and Biega will hit the waiver wire. Would rather they turf Fantenberg instead of the Bulldog. Can’t argue with the other two if true. Good see Gaudette stick around as he earned. No idea how Louie and Schaller are sticking around. Must have pictures of someone.

Yeah that doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

I'm not surprised Baertschi's trade value is zero. He's one hit away from retirement.

Maybe they have an inkling that a team may take a flyer on Sven. There’s zero chance any team would claim the Air Thief or Tom Schaller. So there is value if they could shed the contract of Baertschi. Nothing official yet but it’s out there from Dhaliwal and Friedman.

Salary aside, Louie is better than Goldy, like IN said Baer is a hit away from retirement and isn’t suited for a bottom 6 role. Will be interesting to see if Baer gets claimed. This is what having some nhl depth looks like.

Benning has probably tried everything to trade some of those extras and scrubs. If any of those guys get claimed it at least clears some extra cap space as well as free up a contract Spotify they slid through them Utica just got better and we have NHL depth.

Gotta think Louie is playing for a trade. Schaller I don’t get. Saw nothing from him last year but I guess until Roussel is back both he and Motte will get a chance to earn the right to stay.

Interesting times. Honestly don’t care if we lose any of them, except Biega a bit. I really like having him as a depth guy.

No this is what having some garbage contracts to fringe players looks like.

And Louie is not better than Goldy. He isn’t better than anyone still in camp. His wheels are completely gone and he’s got the compete level of a chipmunk.

Keeping Fantenberg ahead of Biega makes little sense.

One-hit to retirement notwithstanding...
Baertschi looked good with Gaudette and would probably do well on the 3rd line. I assume he's being waived because he frees up more cap than Schaller.

It sucks to be waiving middle-tier talent. Or am I just seeing this through Canuck-coloured glasses?

They can’t waive fantanberg if he’s injured though can they? Louie can still pk and be defensively responsible, I don’t like him as a player either but he’s not as bad as you make him out to be. Baer got pushed off the pp and he doesn’t pk. I’d prefer they waived Louie but I see the rationale behind what they did. At least with Baer and Goldie in Utica the young guys have talent to play with, and there will be options for call ups this year.

@DhaliwalSports
Lots of chatter and speculation as to who the #Canucks put on waivers this morning.
Not confirmed but some of the names I have heard this morning include Goldy, Biega and Baertschi going on waivers.
Again just chatter, we will find out soon enough.

Bearchia and Granlund were always placeholders Granland was let go. If Gaudette has moved Sutter to wing, that displaces Bearchia. Doubt Biega gets claimed.

Lots of teams in the same boat this time of year, few get claimed.

Well if Fantenberg is injured then you keep Biega up as then there are only six healthy D men. Furthermore Bulldog is the better player. You can try and convince someone else that the Air Thief is worth keeping. He should be waived and be the extra forward in Utica. Bully his ass into terminating that contract.

If they waive Louie I bet he goes to the Dallas ahl team.

Sutter would play RW if he gets bounced by Gaudette from C, while Sven plays the left side. That had nothing do do with the decision. Sven is too soft at this point, doesn’t want to get hit. Pearson and Ferland made him expendable.

That would be great too. I’ve just seen enough of the guy. Three more years of this crap isn’t an option.
