This is getting scary. The board is moving towards consensus.
Don’t worry it’s short term until training camp starts. This place would be boring without some good back and forth.

If nothing else it will be nice to go into a season with the hope of making the playoffs - been too long since that was realistic.

I feel like there would be few that say someone other than Horvat.

A very interesting true story on how Gino Odjick perhaps saved Micheal Ferland's hockey career.
I had never heard about this before...

The choices are Horvat, or one more year of alternating captains that may include Petey.

Adam Forsythe

Benning says they are aware of Ferland's injury concerns. He says they had Ferland meet with #Canucks doctors before signing

Adam Forsythe

Benning on signing Ferland: "He is a player we targeted early in free agency. We brought him and his family in to Vancouver to meet with us."

Adam Forsythe

Benning: I think the last couple years we haven't had the size and strength to get to the front of the net, and now we do. We still want to play fast, but now we are stronger. #Canucks

Fortunately he can't be offer sheeted.
But he could be offer sheeted after the 1-2 year contract you're suggesting. Image

Signing him to a one or two year deal would be the height of stupidity. It’s got to be a deal for 4 - 8 years.

4, 7, or 8

5 or 6 doesn’t get enough FA years.

With less FA years, 5 or 6 comes at a lower AAV than 7 or 8 then right?

5 or 6 years seems to be in vogue these days for 2nd contracts.

It gives team/player a *possibility* of an 8 year deal on the 3rd contract.

Most players are probably asking for 8 year deals, but most GM's probably have new CBA on their minds... Hense the shorter terms we are seeing. Once the new (or extended) CBA certainty kicks in, longer contracts will probably come back in force.
