Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

If you sub in Kuemper's name on the original PLD trade from Winnipeg it still looks awful, but nevertheless nice save by Blake. Maybe he'll use that size to his full potential, develop into a 4-5 guy, and people will be saying crazy things like he'll earn a 6 year/$6M salary when he's 29 years old.....

Re: Re-booted SKYO approved pipe dreams and trade ideas

Yep. but Doc, you told me getting rid of Mik wouldn't be that costly because we are no longer in flat cap.. why would we take on another bad contract? I've always maintained it would "cost something" to move Mikheyev ... but I strongly disagreed with your suggestion that the price might be a 1st ro...

Re: Post season wrap up.

Guess we'll have to agree to disagree Hronek with his arms crossed and head down, angry face, before the question is even asked. You can practically see the steam coming out of his ears. His answer is snarky and hostile before Patterson doubles down. Patterson is a dick always but acting like Hrone...

Yeah who knows. I guess if it got worse as he went they probably didn't realize he could use the rest until Demko and Lindholm were already injured. on Boeser: Jeff Paterson @patersonjeff Boeser says a shot block in Game 1 vs EDM led to a bruise that caused some complications and led to clotting iss...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 23-24 Playoff Edition

And, there it is. Thomas Drance @ThomasDrance Elias Pettersson says he's been playing with a bad knee since January. "The longer it went, the more pain I felt," Pettersson said. Doesn't require any procedure this offseason, just time to rest. #Canucks 107 point pace (per 82 gp) over his first 55 gam...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

To thoughts from different sides of the Mikheyev conversation….. If the Canucks dump Mikheyev then that salary goes elsewhere. Likely a free agent because we don’t have enough depth in the cupboard pushing for that spot. So, why would any team want this player when they could simply sign the free a...

Re: Re-booted SKYO approved pipe dreams and trade ideas

Allvin should see if Ottawa will listen on a deal centered around Hronek (sign-and-trade) for Quinn's pal Brady Tkachuk. You should post more. I'd forgotten about the sharp wit. Cheers don, it's nice to visit - after about a decade I'm feeling ready to be delusional about this team again, so maybe ...

Re: Re-booted SKYO approved pipe dreams and trade ideas

Oh, we'd just go out and hit on 100% of our free agent targets. :lol:

Mikheyev/Hronek/Silovs for Tkachuk/Chychrun

Sign Tanev, Pesce, Myers for no more than $14m AAV combined

Sign Dakota Joshua to 4 years $8m

I thought running an NHL team was supposed to be difficult? :drink:

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

Good call, even that ~$1.2m is more than I'd like to have on the books but unloading three quarters of his salary would be helpful for sure. We'd probably get nothing back (entire return goes to the team giving up a retention slot and $2.4m of cap space for 2 years) though.

Sens have a rookie GM, terrible defense (and aren't scared of offering $8m with term to mid defensemen), Canucks need a scoring forward with a nasty streak.

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

I'd be looking to move Mikheyev for a similar white elephant player on the blueline, I don't really know who that is though. There are a few guys out there with similar money and identical term on teams that are probably looking to make changes.. Leddy in St Louis, Jensen and Trevor van Riemsdyk in ...

Re: Raking Leaves with David Ayers Zamboni

I don't want to toot my own horn, particularly because I don't usually have strong takes heading into the draft - but in 2014 I figured there was probably not much value in hanging onto that 6th pick. I wanted to trade up for Draisaitl (probably impossible) or down with Anaheim (10, 38, 55) where we...
