Go leafs Go!
But did you just call the leafs not a good team? I know they have a pathetic history but comments like that are just asking to get roasted.


Leafs sucks ahahahah. I'll get roasted but I like to trigger leafs fans every time I have the opportunity

The only good thing from this trade for Vancouver is that Highmore did good in the playoffs last year, particularly against Edmonton.

However, the Canucks have no chance of making the playoffs, so this is moot.


I voted for the Chicago Blackhawks.

The team said they were not upset about Gaudette getting Covid in a restaurant but I guess they were...

You seriously couldn't find a single team to give you a mid-round pick for Adam Gaudette? Also you pull this trade off now after you say you don't want to trade anyone given the covid situation?


I don't think they had a lot of people willing to risk their team getting infected like in VAN.

The odd thing is why even bother if you are CHI? They don't really have anything to gain here.

People criticizing Benning don't even realize that:

Highmore has the potential to be a 10 point forward when he reaches his prime in 2019.

Saying “your team sucks” is not very creative bro

Absolutely terrible deal for Vancouver, Gaudette has some upside, and had double digit goal totals last year. Defensively hes a nightmare, but the effort is there (unlike Virtanen). If you dont think you can resign him then move him....but Highmore has zero upside- and hes older! a 4th or 5th rounder wouldve been a better return.

This trade really isn't as bad as everyone else seems to think it is. Sure, not a very good deal for the Canucks IMO, but Highmore is a useful depth player and Gaudette was really struggling with the Canucks.

Again, I'm not saying it's a good deal for the Canucks. But is it really that awful?


Yes.

- Highmore is older than Gaudette
- Highmore has a career high of 6 points.
- Gaudette had 33 points in 59 games last year.
- Vancouver is already loaded with bottom-6 wings.

Yes it is.

Ok then I'll say that TOR haven't won a stanley cup in 53 years and soon 54 years. That's some good drafting/player devolopment!!

Every year, we get a move like this just out of the blue... no rumors, no nothing, no logic either. Just out of nowhere someone sells low on a solid young player and everyone's like "what"?
The chaos of the trade deadline lol.

Neither player is anything special. I don't see any player every being anything more than a 4th line forward, but Chicago still wins. Doesn't make a difference for Vancouver though

I’m not even a leafs fans but using the 1967 insult is so overused. There’s so many other things to make fun of like Joffrey Lupul banging Phaneaufs wife in 2016.

LMAO, there’s no way that’s the full deal, What is Benning doing ? You know a trade is lopsided when all of CapFriendly agrees 1 team won

This for sure a casualty of Benning paying the wrong bodies for too much.
