<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>goodaytoday</b></div><div>SJ isn't going to use their last retention slot on Granlund. They will keep it open for contracts with one year left on them, and use it at the TDL. I'm not sure why SJ would want this trade, it does nothing for them but waste a high draft pick. We already have enough players to trade at the TDL, we don't need more. Beauvillier and Myers have negative value, I'm not sure what you mean by trade them for assets. That's a lot of cap hit to trade at the TDL. I would suggest trading them to ANA and CHI, teams with cap space, instead to forcing a trade with SJ, putting them right up against the cap limit. Maybe trade Myers + a 2nd to ANA for future considerations, and Beauvillier + a 3rd to ANA for future considerations. Otherwise if the price is too high, just wait and let them walk.</div></div>
SJ is widely rumoured to want Myers as a short term RD to eat up some of Karlsson's minutes. With retention he will have some value at TDL for a contender.
Beau has negative value? Not sure at all where that idea comes from. With retention, at 3.15, he is definitely a value contract with upside as a middle 6 option. He is far from a cap dump, like Hoffman, Granlund, Lebanc, etc, etc.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Markassmark</b></div><div>Fun game, goalie who kind of disappeared after they played with the Canucks in last 20 years; Ryan Miller, Brayden Holtby, Dan Cloutier, Jaroslav Halak, Mikey DiPietro*, Anders Nilsson, Eddie lack, Andrew raycroft, and I want to say Felix Potvin but he was more than 20 years ago.</div></div>
Of that list, only Cloutier was a starting goalie and he played after Van. Most of those were guys at the end of their careers? They aren't run out of the league when they are 35+ after long careers... They are just done. Other than that... Lack sucked after leaving Van. Nilsson too. Could throw Raycroft in there. You could argue that Luongo and Schneider were run out of town, but they played very good hockey after. Van is not a goalie graveyard like TOR, PHI, or EDM
