Based on the projected list of protected Canucks, either of our two current goaltenders would probably be the best players available from Vancouver.

If the rules are the same as the Vegas expansion then, with the current roster, I think the Canucks would be best served protecting 8 skaters and a goalie.

Horvat
Boeser
Miller
Pettersson
Toffoli
Virtanen
Gaudette
Myers
Markstrom or Demko

Hughes is exempt, Edler and Pearson will be UFA, as will a few others.

Stecher is no big loss.

I'd hate to lose MacEwan, but c'est la vie.

If Markstrom is exposed it's an almost sure thing they would take him, providing next season is a continuation of his last 18 months of play.

If Demko is exposed the loss is felt more in the fact that we would be losing a valuable trade chip or future starter for nothing.
Lol, that's not how it works!

If you protect 7 forwards, you also get to protect 3 defencemen.

Only teams that want to protect 4 dmen go the '8 skaters' route, protecting 4 forwards and 4 dmen.

Now, Demko has potential. He may become a better goalie than Markström at some point.
But at this point I doubt he’d be the hottest item available for Seattle. Well, maybe as their backup...
Well if you're talking league-wide, obviously. However, considering the players on the existing roster who will still be under contract, or RFA, at the end of next year.....

Loui Eriksson
Micaheal Ferland
Sven Baertschi
Antoine Roussel
Jay Beagle
Olli Juolevi
Brogan Rafferty
Josh Teves
Thatcher Demko

Who are you taking over Demko there? The only player that one could conceivably see being taken would be Roussel if he regains his form as prior to this season's return from injury has been a very useful 3rd line forward.
Well a lot can change in a year, so Juolevi could be very desirable at that point.

Especially if Markstom/Demko have a bad season.

You mentioned MacEwen in the first quote, but left him off this list (Motte too?).

Apparently Tryamkin is coming back, he would be another option.

Lind would also be an option.

Rafferty, Teves, and Baertschi (UFA) will be exempt from the X-draft.

You include pending-UFA Toffoli in your calculations, but you don't count pending-UFA Tanev. :eh:

Well if Tanev isn't re-signed, likely some other RSD requiring protection will be here.

I'm rushing this, as I'm just heading out the door, hopefully I got it right, later...

Just the other day Skyo solved his own problems (in his mind) with the "Let Marky, Leivo and Tanev" go comment in the 'compliance' thread, and here he is, now making more drama for himself..
Do you have anything insightful to add?? or just being a fucking troll lol.
Just curious to see which way the sky is falling today in your world.

Because nothing insightful was in your original post.

Yeah. I'm not sure if I read it wrong or just remembered wrong, but for some reason I thought it was 6F 3D 1G or 8S and 1G.

It IS 6F 3D 1G or 8S and 1G.

But common sense tells us that 8S and 1G will be 4 dee + 4 forwards + 1 goalie.

Not 7 forwards + 1 dee, lol...

Wait, 7F 3D 1G or 8S and 1G.

Okay Meds, I get how you're saying you fucked that up now.

And then you fucking followed that up by fucking fucking up your next fucking post to Per in a different fucking way!

All of this fucking up led to yours truly saying 6 instead of 7.

Fuck you Meds, now everything is fucking fucked right up in this fucking conversation! :scowl:

Haven't had our annual Panther/Canuck trade in awhile.
When NHL.com’s Nick Cotsonika asked Dale Tallon how the Florida GM felt leaving the BB&T Centre after Sunday’s 3–0 loss to Calgary, Tallon replied, “I was pissed,” adding the Panthers haven’t been the same since a 4–0 defeat in Montreal on Feb. 1. (They are 5-9-2 since.) If Tallon is upset, you can only imagine how owner Vinny Viola feels. Viola dropped more than $100 million — from Sergei Bobrovsky to Joel Quenneville to Anton Stralman, etc. — and while attendance figures have increased a bit, it is still under 14,000 per game. The Panthers are in danger of missing the playoffs for the fourth straight season, and the question being asked is, “What are the consequences?” The are many potential changes on and off the ice, but what has other GMs buzzing is a belief the Panthers will strongly consider breaking up their core because the mix hasn’t worked. Was the Vincent Trocheck deal just the tip of the iceberg?
