Description
The Canucks are not a rebuilder. We have a promising team. Our main issues are defensively (we are too weak in terms of NHL-ready talent available). However, if we were to entertain the idea of JT, Brock & Garly being gone - I thought I would throw together some deals that would be the price that the Canucks should be holding out for.

However, given that we arent a rebuilder, I do not see us going down that road. This is why I believe Allvin and Rutherford will most likely pursue moves that improve us defensively, while also dumping off cap heavy contracts. This is what Rutherford did in Pittsburgh prior to them becoming a contender. Some guys I could see getting moved:

1. Pearson
2. Myers
3. Halak
4. Hamonic
5. Schenn
6. Dickinson
7. Motte

Mercer > Garland already

Adding a first on top of that is crazy

That's fair. I don't watch the NJD enough to know his value. But after looking at his draft position/stats so far... I'd imagine you value him like a top 8 drafted prospect. In which case, one-for-one would've been good. Garly's contract is very good, there's a chance we'll offload him to a team for a first-round prospect, a first ++

I like the idea of the conditional pick but I don’t think the leafs would want to give up both Liljegren and Robertson
See All
