I like Barrie but not sure having both him and Hughes makes sense. You can only be so small of a team on the whole. It’s still a heavy game, see the last two cup winners. Plus he’s gonna rake in a big contract in which we can’t afford. We’d hs evto move all of Stecher, Sutter, Markstrom and Eriksson I would think. Replaced with entry levels.
It’s not even the size. I just wonder if both he and Hughes would get enough looks offensively on the same team. I doubt both would get enough PP time as teams almost always go with four forwards on the PP nowadays.

The Avs are going to have the best D in the league in a couple years once Byram sand Timmins come on board.

Vancouver really needs a couple of top d prospects in their system as we only have longshots and depth pieces coming up the pipe. Its a gaping black hole.

Timmins is like Baertschi, one more concussion away from hanging them up. I’d rank Girard way ahead of Timmins

Timmins has had one concussion and made the team out of camp. By your rationale anyone who’s had one concussion should just retire.

Girard is a solid player. Would look good in a Canucks uniform.

I'd much rather have Muzzin
Not sure he will be much cheaper but yeah he’d be a better fit
Hes not going anywhere. Hes a pajama wearing toronto maple laugh for life
I dunno, he might want out of the zoo.

It is very unpleasant at the centre of the universe when things are spiraling out of control.

If the Leaves miss the playoffs he might bail! :drink:

Timmins is touch and go. One hit away from the quiet room

Habs have injury issues. Need middle 6 forwards, and have 12 picks in upcoming draft...

New homes for Goldobin and Baertschi??

Habs have 4 x 4th round picks.. could we get a 3rd and a 4th for these 2 guys??

But Mick, as an unproven 6th round pick, with no experience in the NHL, who will pay more than a 6th round pick for him?!??

Bearcheeze and Goldie have NHL experience, And are assets. They are worth something. The question is what? (And to who - more desperate teams are sometimes willing to pay more)

Was just making the point to Whiz not to give players away for free when you could get a pick. Any pick. Like even a 6th.
I wasn't wanting to trade our prospect goalie.
Unless of course it involved LE leaving.

I was perusing the UFA list for next summer and see both Vatanen and Erik Gustafsson coming up.

I would definitely be interested in letting Tanev walk if we could land EG as a replacement. The kid is money

Trade Eriksson ideal #500,002

Eriksson ($6M AAV for two more years) for Kovalchuk ($6.25M AAV this and next year.)
LA Kings General Manager Rob Blake met with members of the media at the start of warm-ups prior to Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Wild, which followed Elliotte Friedman’s afternoon report that the team had informed Ilya Kovalchuk of an intent to withhold him from the lineup “for the foreseeable future.

There is word this afternoon that LA has informed Ilya Kovalchuk he will be out of the lineup for the foreseeable future.

He is welcome to practice with the club, but he will not be playing. Obviously, more details as they occur.

— Elliotte Friedman. Nov 12, 2019
I can see Kopitar and Eriksson being good together.

Kovie might get a good luck with Bo or Petey, and he can be Tryamkin's ambassador here next year.

Meh. I have him on my fantasy team.
He was lights out last season, but he is not delivering the goods this year. :(

Neither is Eric Karlsson, by the way. I have both.
I was drooling over my fantasy blue line, but they've gone all Loui Eriksson on me. :evil:

If Kovalchuck isn't good enough for one of the worst team in the NHL, why Is he good for us?!??

Say NO to used up veterans.
