A Future Without Pettersson

Created by: Julius_Freezer
Team: 2024-25 Vancouver Canucks
Initial Creation Date: Feb. 7, 2024
Published: Feb. 7, 2024
Salary Cap Mode: Basic
Description
IF Pettersson is traded the only team that makes sense is Buffalo as they're the only ones who have the cap to sign him long term, are close enough to competing to appeal to him and have the assets VAN would want in a deal like that. Doubt this happens but this is the kind of return I'd want, it may be excessive so if it makes you feel better drop the 1st and/or Ohstlund but I feel like Benson, Power, and Mitts would need to be part of the deal.

Blud, you ain't gonna get that for someone's RFA rights. Tkachuk trade is a good comparable.

I have no part in this as a Ducks fan. But curious in this, because it basically means you’re proposing

Young #1C =

Young #2C, ELC top 6 W, Young #1LD, young top 6 C/LW prospect.

I fully agree that Pettersson is super valuable, but whoa

Why would Columbus do that? I'm not necessarily even arguing, I'm just curious what you think their motivation is. Vancouver's is obvious.

Johnson isn't working in CBJ, he needs a fresh start, Silovs is a future #1 Goalie, something CBJ desperately needs, Raty is a future 3C and a 1st for a guy who's been bouncing between the NHL and AHL is a good deal imo.

Like I said in the comments, maybe take out Ohstlund and/or the pick, but EP40 is fully worth Benson, Power and Mittlestadt. 25 Year Old 100+ point player who plays Selke level defense, EP40 is a Top 10 Player in the League and would likely command the largest package in recent history.

Kinda funny if Buffalo is "only team" to trade Pettersson, why would offer so much? Why are Vanouver fans so enthralled with resigninbg Lindholm. Just because Canucks traded doesn't mean they have to sign him.

Unsigned RFA don’t have that value. He isn’t getting traded regardless.

- Huby and Weeger both needed new contracts and Huby was horrible overpaid.
- Weeger is a great dman, but 21 year old Owen Power on a $8.35 mill contract > 30 year old Weeger on a $6.25 mill/year contract
- Benson, Mittelstadt. Östlund and a 24 1st >>>> Huby

Hard pass. And even then, if Buffalo is the only place you can trade him, then they have all the power to low ball you. Mittelstadt also has 20 points less than Pettersson but you signed him for a cap hit about 7 million dollars cheaper than what EP would get

Yeah, you definitely would want more teams competing to drive up the cost. Unless you are Jeff skinners agent, in which case, market economics go out the window.

Buffalo isn’t selling their future for a $12 or $13 million center when they already have two centers, basically making that much combined. And like others have said if Buffalo is the only team with the assets and cap space, they don’t have to give you what you want. If your choice is to trade him or lose him for nothing, you take what is handed to you and say thank you.

This is Mitts first year of quality production, he doesn't play Selke level defense, and is just straight up nowhere near as good as EP40

I mean at that price why wouldnt the sabres just offer sheet him at a price outside of what van could pay. give up four first rounders and keep their players who are clearly worth more than that

1- Sabres are NOT trading for EP40, we’re already deep at Center & don’t want your &13mil guy- that’s ALL you

2- Mitts was good last year also, he’ll get something in the 7x7 range, 5.5mil is pretty low

3- the absurd overpayment, I’ll say it again- ABSURD- just makes Buffalo LAUGH & hang up 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣


You’re dreaming dude
Take this nonsense to your Xbox
Sabres don’t want Pettersson, & we sure as $h!t aren’t OVERPAYING (massively btw) to get him
No thanks
