I was saying to trade Eriksson since 2017 my first ideal was for Dustin Brown....which wasn't accepted very well as everyone thought Brown was trash and was the main reason for the Kings demise.

http://canuckscorner.com/forums/viewtop ... 91#p278691

then the next season Brown scores 61 pts and 51 pts lol
I was right about Dustin Brown, and I'll be right about Lucic when he gets a new change of scenery.

Talking about Lucic's lack of speed -> yet ain't nobody keeping up with McDavid! are you fucking kidding me!!?! McDavid is a one man machine, he's like Horvat x 5000, pure north/south attack at the speed of light.

Big Looch beside Petey-Boeser will provide a measurably amount of protection - (& no don't bring up McDavid getting injured, like Bure, flying electric around, shit's bound to happen tragic).
But in the wars measurable - when players can think in a chess match - you gonna think twice if Big Looch is out there - I mean compare vs playing vs lightweight Eriksson - who are you gonna be more aware of out there on the ice?

$6M per

Invisible lightweight Eriksson - 3 whole hits - I mean how the fuck you avoid everything in hockey to only get a measly 3 hits???

OR

Big bad bruin bad ass LUCIC? can scrap, can hit, can score in the right setting, he's also what 3 years younger than LE?

It's almost a no brainer to swap eriksson for lucic. NMC can be waived.

No hopes up as Lucic came around to the big wigs..............
but he chose speedy Gonzalez McDavid.

Skyo’s friend from hfboards Canucks “RIP Botchford” said Karlsson was on a connecting flight. He knows everything about everything. Keep in mind this is the poster that Dude took a shine to. Used to go by “Dim Jim”. I guess he is a massive Jason Botchford fanboy. He posted that he “was in shambles” upon hearing the news of Botchford’s passing. Got quite the massive ego this poster.

Connecting? With a 2 day stopover at an undisclosed downtown hotel?

Kicking tires. Didn’t Tavares do the same thing? Visited a half dozen cities prior to signing, wasn’t the Canucks one of them

Yes, but not before the UFA-discussion window.

That is very curious, I really think the weird Swedish love-in might tip the scales in our favour, especially since according to Friedman he has been offered Doughty-money on an 8-year deal from SJS, but hasn't accepted it...

Unofficially, there is a lot of talk going on. Third party, agents etc. All that is on Karlsson mind right now is where he will be playing out his final days, makes sense that he drops in, checks out a city that is showing interest. Most Likely stayed at one of the Sedins home.

Say we sign Karlsson, he plays the right side. Are we keeping Tanev? And is that bye bye to Edler although he is left side?

My thought

Right side - Stecher, Tanev, Karlsson
Left side - Hughes, Juolevi, Hutton

Edler walks, or keep Edler and trade Hutton. Cost save with Juolevi, throw him to the fire.

Keep Tanev until RHD Woo is ready
