Vancouver Trades
Loui Eriksson
Adam Gaudette
2nd Round Pick 2020
3rd Round Pick 2021

Buffalo Trades
Rasmus Ristolainen

Vancouver gets rid of a terrible contract and a prospect they don't really need. They also get a defensemen who could fit in perfectly with their D. Buffalo gets rid of a defensemen that didn't work out with them but they recive a prospect that could fit in good and 2 picks

20 Aug 2019 03:29:33
Pretty easy no from Buffalo lol.
They lose Ristolainen and get one of the worst contracts in the league.

20 Aug 2019 09:43:37
Nobody is going to take Eriksson, what part of that don't you guys understand

20 Aug 2019 13:07:27
Buffalo laughs and never answers a call from Vancouver again.

18 Aug 2019 06:38:10
Vancouver trades: Baertschi

Edmonton trades: Puljujärvi

Hollowell (AHL)

Vancouver Trades

Thoughts ?

13 Aug 2019 21:45:14
Still greatly overvaluing Marner. I doubt Van would consider it even in a joking manner.

13 Aug 2019 21:57:03
Pinball, can you please leave Vancouver out of your nightmare inducing proposals?

13 Aug 2019 22:17:35
Pinsball your such a Leaf homer. Dumb trade.

13 Aug 2019 23:14:41
Boeser is 100% not going anywhere. think he will get around 7 to 8 a year. only reason Marner would be traded is cause they can't afford him.

14 Aug 2019 00:45:33
Same trade as yesterday slightly tweaked. Still doesn’t make it any better. The criticisms stay the same.

14 Aug 2019 02:09:32
Terrible for Van.

14 Aug 2019 02:37:31
How come they keep getting worse? Last one was an obvious no and this one is even worse.

17 Aug 2019 17:51:08
Had something realistic going there until Hughes got into the mix.
Try again with something else other than Hughes.

18 Aug 2019 01:35:22
K lose the stupid THOUGHTS?

20 Aug 2019 18:17:20
Hahahhhahahahahahaha omg I can believe this proposal... toronto can keep their issue of signing marner

13 Aug 2019 10:22:30
Vancouver trades
Sutter & Baertschi & Stecher
Buffalo trades
Ristolainen & Sobotka

Cap wise it works for the Sabres & they gain much needed depth. A vet C to help on D & the PK. LW scoring in Sven. Affordable RHD to play up & down the pairings.

Canucks free up the roster logjam & gain cap space immediately & for 2020. Risto won't be needed to be overplayed & better off for it helping out scoring. Sobotka is serviceable for his last year on the bottom 6. Allows flexibility to trade Tanev or let him walk as a UFA.

Tbh i'm not sure i want this trade thinking the Sabres get a pretty good return. Long term & cap space is my motive.

13 Aug 2019 15:02:31
Easy no from Buffalo.
They get no value back for Ristolainen.
Sutter is a overpaid 3rd line centre, Baertschi is extremely injury prone and when he's healthy he's always inconsistent. Stecher is a bottom pairing defenceman.

Also, salary cap wise this doesn't work for Buffalo.
They currently have -1M in cap space.
5.4 (Risto) + 3.5 (Sobotka) - 1 (Negative cap space) = 7.9M
4.3 (Sutter) + 3.3 (Baertschi) + 2.3 (Stetcher) = 9.9M

9.9 > 7.9
Because of this trade not only do the Sabres get worse but they gain an extra million in cap space debt.

13 Aug 2019 20:33:50
2 demotions to the AHL gets them compliant.

Risto is the best player in the trade.
Sobotka is a cap thrown in.
Sutter is a 3C and overpaid for only 2 more years but helps where the Sabres lack most. C depth and D.
Sven is injury prone but isn’t a lost cause albeit some risk comes with him but can help out scoring.
Stecher truly a 3rd pairing D yes but is useful still.

Overall it’s a hopeful trade on the Canucks side.
Risto is good for scoring and needs to be in a better position and not relied on to play too many shutdowns minutes.
Depth and experience is the selling point if Botterill sees it that way. If a better offer out there then take it. His ask i assume is too high and Risto being RHD is his biggest carrot.

13 Aug 2019 20:57:07
Sabres don't need any RHanded Shooting Defencemen or LWingers.
Sutter would be the only interest.

14 Aug 2019 00:54:08
Sitter is injury prone. Baertschi is injury prone. Stretcher isn’t really any good. Buffalo can do better than this or won’t bother.

14 Aug 2019 11:26:27
Uhm, how do the Sabres lack depth on defence?
Also, I'm a bit confused on where this LW depth issue is.
They signed Johansson to be their 2nd line LW and Jeff Skinner is their first.
After that they have Vesey and Girgensons as the 3rd and 4th line LW.

And the centre depth issue is definitely arguable.
Where is Sutter going to play? 2nd line? Nope. Mittelstadt. 3rd line? Nope. Rodrigues. 4th line? Nope. Larsson.

All of Buffalo's centres are cheaper and better than Sutter. (Larsson is arguable)

15 Aug 2019 06:49:09
Looks like a Cup tram then. Book it lol.

12 Aug 2019 21:56:17
Toronto: Marner

Vancouver:Boeser,2rd2020, 3rd2020

13 Aug 2019 01:35:17
Vancouver can barely afford Boeser. How could we afford Marner who will want 3-4 mil more?

13 Aug 2019 02:39:25
I think that's fair but really would like to hear both players money demands. I heard marner wants 11mil but haven't heard what boeser is wanting. If it's like 7.5 or 8mil for him would rather keep boeser. Except he has miss like 15 or 20 games the last 2 years each.

13 Aug 2019 02:49:23
I think Marner has more value than Boeser too. How much is debateable. THis trade hurts both teams more than helps. Leafs need a set up man and Vancouver needs goal scorers. Both teams also probably think their own player is the better.

12 Aug 2019 17:13:54
Toronto Trades
Hollowell (AHL/OHL)

Vancouver Trades

Canucks would have to move out some Salary to sign Marner but it could work for both Teams.
Talent wise it's close as a Marner for Boeser isn't enough from Vancouver but adding Hollowell who is a good prospect as well not a throw in for QHughes makes this Trade Proposal work.


12 Aug 2019 18:54:18
What a crazy over payment for Marner.

12 Aug 2019 19:11:55
I can't see Vancouver considering that at all.

12 Aug 2019 20:11:09

13 Aug 2019 01:19:53
Hughes is one of (if not THE) best defensive prospects right now.
His potential is huge and he's expected to be a star in the NHL.
Boeser is well, Boeser.


13 Aug 2019 02:27:18
Swap Marner for Mathews, Sandin And 1st And I still wouldn’t consider Marner is the best U25 winger since Howe.

13 Aug 2019 02:41:44
Why? Canucks would be crazy to do that. Marner and boeser aren't that far apart. Then add one of the best prospects in nhl makes no sense whatsoever.

13 Aug 2019 02:51:10
Again, both teams needs are different and unsatisfied by this move. Vancouver values Boeser’s goal scoring ability more than Marner’s playmaking and the opposite for the Leafs.

13 Aug 2019 17:45:37
Anddd there goes Vbb comparing Marner to Howe

13 Aug 2019 20:26:21
Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. 😂😂😂😂.
Every day. You don’t disappoint Vb. Too funny.

13 Aug 2019 20:50:48
This is terrible, take Quin Hughes out and Vancouver adds a 2rd 2020.

13 Aug 2019 20:51:03
Why doesn’t Vancouver throw in Pettersson while we’re at it?

14 Aug 2019 21:25:52
jagr was a pretty good winger when he was winning cups with pittsburgh before the age of 25, not even saying he was the best since howe. just off the top of my head, how good was Pavel Bure at 25?

15 Aug 2019 20:48:03
hell, even Mike Gartner was more impressive on the wing before the age of 25.

11 Aug 2019 07:50:42

Eriksson 1yr extra cap dump cancels out
Dubinsky 2yrs left for a washed up player

Sutter for C depth
Stecher for bottom pair RHD.

Anderson & cap space in a perfect world be nice. Not likely CBJ wants to move him but kick some tires anyways.

11 Aug 2019 10:30:28
Andersson = Boeser.

11 Aug 2019 12:40:38
In what world does Anderson equal beoser that crazy talk.

11 Aug 2019 13:59:09
If Anderson=Boeser, Anderson = Marner.

11 Aug 2019 15:35:49
Anderson is not equal to Boeser, and Boeser is not equal to Marner.

11 Aug 2019 21:04:23
Lmao. Boeser has more value than Anderson.
And Josh Anderson is one of my favorite third liners in the league. Really like him and Boone Jenner together as a third line. But I still know Boeser has more value than Anderson. Lol.

12 Aug 2019 09:55:01
Yeah, I love Boeser, but he’s not equal to Marner. But Andersson is not equal to Bowser either.

12 Aug 2019 09:57:45
Well Columbus fans said they would trade Andersson for Eichel in a 1 for 1 swap on HFBoards. He’s the best in the NHL for what he does and on a team like the leafs who lacks a physical edge I’d take Andersson over Boeser 1000/10 times.

12 Aug 2019 10:10:26
at this point does anyone really care a what you think vb?

12 Aug 2019 13:48:50
All I can say is wow at Vbb's comments, just in awe about how often this guy gets smashed drunk and then visits this website.

12 Aug 2019 16:38:49
What i think is irrelevant i'm just saying facts. Fact is Columbus wouldn't trade Andersson for Boeser nor vise versa but i'm sure most leaf fans would take Andersson over Boeser.

12 Aug 2019 18:17:37
I can’t even read your crap anymore vbb’s. You always try to educate people on this site so here’s one for you. Look up the word “fact” and come back and let us know if this is your “opinion” or a “fact”. You show your age more every day. The “fact” is you have no clue what any GM would do.

12 Aug 2019 19:22:49
By VB's logic, Anderson=Marner.

12 Aug 2019 20:13:18
Lmfao. That is so far from a fact Dumbas. You just said that’s some random fans on a boards opinion - not fact.
Boeser has a ton more value than Anderson lmao. You just make yourself look bad day in day out. It’s awesome.

13 Aug 2019 02:28:27
Everything I say is a fact.

13 Aug 2019 02:56:37
Now I understand the whole vb is clueless thing. Did I really just read that?

13 Aug 2019 20:28:38
No, no it’s not. It’s very far from fact. It’s your clueless homer biased opinion. “Marner is the best singer since Howe”. Lmfao 😂😂😂😂. One of the worst opinions I’ve ever heard too.

13 Aug 2019 20:52:21
A fact is 1 + 1 is 2. An opinion is when you take bias and put one player with more value. It's clear if its lop sided but not when you listen to regular people say opinions on a website. can't just say your teams player is better. An opinion that andersson has more value is ludercris. That's an opinion which fine you have, just can't call it fact.

08 Aug 2019 21:03:30

Cap works for the Oilers
Canucks save 1m cap space
JP 2/1.5m
Gagner to the AHL again

Other than JP all are in contract years. Oil gain some depth & Canucks gain a roster spot demoting Gagner.

08 Aug 2019 23:37:35
So do the slashes mean one of those players or both of them?

09 Aug 2019 05:17:34
Both so a 2 for 2.

09 Aug 2019 06:02:05
Honestly, I think it's close value wise.
Oilers get their RD so Kris Russell can go back to playing LD, and Sven Baertschi for LW depth.
Vancouver gets a risky player with Jesse P, but if they can turn him around it'll be a steal.

09 Aug 2019 11:00:57
I like it

09 Aug 2019 11:54:26
Slashes generally mean either or.

09 Aug 2019 12:17:06
Slashes usually mean a hard
Slash with a hockey stick or a slash with a knife. What country is your dictionary from vbb?

09 Aug 2019 13:58:52
Slashes as a punctuation.

09 Aug 2019 18:22:51
Just messing around vbb. This site is what boredom is all about, haha.

09 Aug 2019 20:06:11
A few glitches on this trade.

1. Gagner played very well in Edm and was 10x better than Strome or Spooner for his Salary. If he plays as well this year as he did last year he is an NHL'er not AHL demotion as indicated.

2nd and most importantly.
Everyone seems to want Jesse for peanuts. Not happening as per Holland's statement. Good on Holland playing hardball with the spoiled brat who thinks that he can dictate his will upon an NHL franchise when he hasn't proven anything yet. Most kids would kill to play in the NHL, doesn't matter which team.

It will take a massive gamble by a GM to pry him out of Edmonton right now with either a top 6'er, or an unprotected 1st.
No one wants to give that for a risk like that, and Holland won't let the brat go for less than that. So STALEMATE time.

Realistically Holland's plan to send Pulu to Europe to have a bit of an attitude adjustment, and prove he can actually skate after double hip surgery is best for everyone. Losing his agent and blaming his child like request on the agent is something I think he needs to do to save face to get back to the NHL.

Ask is too high, return is too low. So off to Euro land you go. Show everyone what you're worth and then perhaps a realistic trade can get negotiated.

09 Aug 2019 22:06:47
@west is best
I'm an Oilers fan, and to be honest I'm pretty biased at times. But no way are we getting a top 6 player or an unprotected first for Jesse.

Sven Baertschi has the skills to become a top 6 players, he just has issues with injuries.

11 Aug 2019 04:53:33
Why did vbb get so many unbelievables, he's right lol about the slash

11 Aug 2019 10:05:23
Unbelievable are not dictated by the point created but more or less about the reputation/ Likeablilty of said poster.

05 Aug 2019 16:55:20
Toronto Trades

Vancouver Trades

Canucks will have to unload Eriksson like the Leafs unloaded Marleau to sign Marner but see a fit for both Teams.

Thoughts ?

05 Aug 2019 16:16:05
The Canucks do not have to unload Eriksson. We have 5 mil in cap space right now, when we send two players to the AHL at the start of the year we will be a just over 7 which is what Boeser wants AAV, we can sign Boeser without trading Eriksson. And this doesn’t even mention the fact that Roussel is going on LTIR when the season starts which will free up another 4 mil.

The Canucks are NOT in a cap crunch and we do NOT need to trade Eriksson. And, we are definitely not doing that gift for Toronto. You can keep Marner and his 11+ mil contract or you can trade him for under market value, those are your openly two options.

As far as your trade itself? Trash. The difference between Boeser and Marner is NO WHERE NEAR a blue chip D prospect like Hughes. Keep dreaming.

Do us all a favour and stick with your AHL’ers for Parise at half retained Pinball, at least those are less garbage than this.

05 Aug 2019 21:12:34
Lol. Vancouver laughs.

05 Aug 2019 22:28:11
Leafs have Tavares and Matthews, we don’t really need another goal scorer.

05 Aug 2019 23:46:48
LOL the best player in Leafs history for that. You all will still all be hating on Marner after he scores 130 next season.

06 Aug 2019 00:47:54
Obviously not 130 goals points I meant.

06 Aug 2019 03:02:09
130pts? Vbb you need to chill

06 Aug 2019 03:09:23
Vbb straight disrespect to sundin or keon. you're really young and dumb

06 Aug 2019 08:12:24
I’m 100% sure that Vb is a pure troll. There’s no way someone can be this delusional every day.

06 Aug 2019 08:41:10
130pts is moronic . I know you like to exaggerate vbb but that's really dumb. I guess McDavid going to get well over 200 then.

06 Aug 2019 14:26:24
Marner will our produce McDavid for sure with more ice time and better pp. Sundin And Keon also have nothing on Marner or even Mathews ( if healthy ) . Marner will lead the league in points next Season.

06 Aug 2019 15:25:04
130 pts for Marner and 90pts for Nylander? What’s Tavares and Matthews going to get vbb’s?

06 Aug 2019 16:02:50

06 Aug 2019 16:31:04
Nylander will get almost a PPG if put with Mathews.

Marner will carry Tavares to what ever amount of points he gets. Maybe Nylander 77 points, Mathews 92 points, Tavares 99 points ( all Marner 70 points without him ) and 122 points for Marner. McDavid will put up 119 points and Kucherov will put up 127.

Also if Nylander got 20 minutes a per game on a line with Draistle-McDavid-Nylander he could easily put up 90+ points.

06 Aug 2019 16:40:11
Wow. Vb needs some serious help lol.

06 Aug 2019 21:45:16
What about I just said is unreasonable you can not provide an argument to discredit my statement all you can do is click the disagree button maybe I’m wrong about Keon and Sundin because me being a 2001 I haven’t seen Keaon or a prime sundin but I’ll wager that he’ll be known as that by the time he retires which is a possible scenario with decent probability.

07 Aug 2019 00:43:18
Didn’t Kucherov just get 120 points? If Kucherov can, then why can’t Marner? I can see Marner breaking 100 points regularly. An Art Ross or Hart trophy is easily possible. Marner is very similar to a young Patrick Kane. Very Similar.

07 Aug 2019 04:24:23
Beside Tavares he's obviously hitting 100 but the leafs aren't the lightning. Tampa broke records, leafs didn't break anything. Almost everybody on the lightning had career years. Marner ain't hitting 130 any time soon

30 Jul 2019 22:13:36
Vancouver -- Brandon Sutter

Tampa -- Cedric Paquette

Tampa receives a solid 2 way center and penalty killer.

Vancouver receives a player to replace Antoine Roussel and $2.75 million in cap space.

Both contracts are up in 20/21

31 Jul 2019 00:29:08
Tbay doesn't need to take on extra salary for 2 year, got point to sign and kucherovs contract kicks in. Think if anything they try trading palat or johnson or killhorn for cheaper players.

31 Jul 2019 01:09:08
Tampa’s the team you think would work best in trying to dump salary to?

31 Jul 2019 01:35:28
Don't think Tampa is in the place to be taking on that money for a player that is equal or worse in my opinion.

31 Jul 2019 07:32:02
Because TB is the team taking a salary dump, sure

Maybe think a second about a trade before you post it. Ideally from both involved club's perspectives.

26 Jul 2019 08:25:36
Toronto: Marner, Lilijegreen

Vancouver: Elias P. , Erikson, Juolevi, Tanev

26 Jul 2019 13:05:49
Yeah I would rather keep Peterson he is a center and IMO is the better goal scorer. He is also on ELC for 2 more years.

26 Jul 2019 15:15:02
No from Vancouver.

26 Jul 2019 18:41:23
Tanev signed a 6 year contract with Pittsburgh so he will not be included in your trade.

26 Jul 2019 18:48:40
@Rjh: there are 2 Tanev’s.

26 Jul 2019 20:10:18
Not worth trading Marner for Petterson if it means taking on Ericsson. Petterson, Juolevi, Tanev are all injury prone anyway. Better off with Super Marner.

26 Jul 2019 21:22:53
I actually don’t mind it not sure how Pettersson would do on the wing but I wouldn’t take back Tanev and Erickson in the same deal. With Pettersson on the ELC and trading Marner the leafs can afford to take back Erickson but it’d take a lot to dump his contract.

26 Jul 2019 21:36:26
Also it’s a fact Marner has more value right now then Pettersson unlike keyboard GMs real professionals know Marner will be battling McDavid for scoring titles.

26 Jul 2019 21:03:15
Take out Erickson and it’s close to fair. Juoleve has no value.

26 Jul 2019 21:54:31
Mcdavid is a center marner is a winger how can they battle literally play two very different position.

26 Jul 2019 23:51:58
Hahaha, Man this is great entertainment.

27 Jul 2019 02:25:32
What are you talking about Redwing what does position have to do with scoring totals.

27 Jul 2019 16:40:21
The fact the Vb thinks Marner is on the same level as McDavid is telling enough lmao.

27 Jul 2019 19:37:05
A center scoring 90 pts and a winger scoring 90 pts are two very different things. You can't compare the two.

31 Jul 2019 03:21:06
Vancouver says a hard no.

05 Aug 2019 04:42:43
Huge no from vancouver.... totally delusional. Jim Benning would laugh hang up and block that number.

26 Jul 2019 00:51:31
Canucks - Brock Boeser, Troy Stecher & 1st-Round Draft Pick

Maple Leafs - Mitch Marner

26 Jul 2019 03:01:36
Yeah, that’s a big no thanks from Vancouver.

26 Jul 2019 05:12:28
I don’t think Toronto makes this trade. Boeser is too injury prone.

26 Jul 2019 16:25:39
Boeser is injury prone, Stechter is top 6 d at most, and the 1st won’t be high once Vancouver gets Marner, leafs say no.

25 Jul 2019 05:43:41
Kings trade: Toffoli

Nucks trade: Baertschi, tanev

Ferland Petterson Boeser
Miller Horvat Toffoli

If Canucks could get a top 6 guy like Toffoli to play with Horvat I think they could make playoffs

And shed some cap

25 Jul 2019 06:50:04
Oh they would most definitely make the playoffs. Need a taker for Loui and boom playoff time

25 Jul 2019 14:03:09
Defense looks mediocre at best, and goalie isn’t the greatest, but Vancouver looks a lot better coming into this years than last. Baertcshi and Tanev are both more or less dumps here for Toffoli, who is a good player. LA is rebuilding. Toffoli is worth a 1st or 2nd at deadline time at least. LA will want picks and prospects for him. Not a broken down RHD and a bottom six player that can’t even get 20 goals in return.

25 Jul 2019 16:33:39
No from Vancouver, neither player are dumps. Tanev in a more limited roll can still be a great shut down defenseman, and Baertschi was looking like a 60 point guy before concussions unfortunately got him, but again, not a dump.

So many people on here are just clueless about the Canucks, I really wish you’d all just stop making posts about them until you did some research.

25 Jul 2019 22:10:30
35 in 68, 29 in 53 and 14 in 26 aren't even close to a 60 point guy hahaha. Maybe he's a 45 point guy, but with the injuries, Baertschi doesn’t have a whole lot of trade value. I don't think the proposed deals too fsr off, cause I do think Toff>Tanev.

24 Jul 2019 11:08:11
vancouver: Olli Juolevi, Loui Erikson, 2nd, conditional 3rd (if they make playoffs)
ottawa: pageau, boedker.

24 Jul 2019 13:36:30
Replace Joulevi with Hughes and take out picks.

24 Jul 2019 14:54:13
No from Vancouver. While Juolevi would be more than enough to dump Eriksson himself, the Canucks aren’t in a cap crunch and thus have no need to overpay to move a contract.

Also leave it to Vb to show his delusion again, Hughes to dump Eriksson? Get real lmao, there’s something wrong in your head, go get checked into a mental asylum.

24 Jul 2019 20:29:20
Okay we’ll look at it logically. I can send a link of the definition of logically if you’d like because I’d be surprised if you’re familiar with the word.

Patrick Marleau had a 1st attached to him to dump him for 1 season. Both players are buyout level and have the same annual salary ( around ) so if 1 1st round pick dumps 6million in salary for 1 year it’d take 3x as much to dump Erickson so if you’d like you can exchange Hughes with 3 1sts. Also not to mention Ottawa is giving back two decent players. I didn’t realize I was genius and knew more then everyone I’m actually very proud of my superior intelligence compared to the vast majority.

25 Jul 2019 01:06:23
Vertius is right, marleau was a need to be dumped, Vancouver is not in the same spot. So not going to give up assets to dump a contract. Leafs had to so they were at the mercy of teams knowing they had to.

25 Jul 2019 02:02:04
Is hughes really that much better than Juolevi though? From what I’ve seen, they are still pretty even rated.

25 Jul 2019 04:03:56
Joelevi wasa bust pick from day 1. Something beneficial to Ottawa needs to be offered up. Yes like Hughes or 1st rd'r.

23 Jul 2019 05:18:53
Vancouver: Erikson + 2nd 2020 + conditional 3rd (transferred if vancouver makes 2020 playoffs)
OTT: Boedker (may have spelled that wrong)

Gonna cost more than that to dump Loui.

Vancouver: Erikson + 1st (lottery protected 2020, moves to 2021 if vancouver does not make playoffs in 19-20 season) + 3rd
OTT: Boedker (may have spelled that wrong)

22 Jul 2019 22:57:34
Vancouver traded that pick to Tampa.

23 Jul 2019 01:55:07
Didn’t Vancouver just trade a 1st for JT Miller?

23 Jul 2019 05:16:33

Vancouver:Erikson(50% retain)

17 Jul 2019 18:43:19
Why does Vancouver have to retain so much when they are taking on Alzner’s dump truck contract. At least Eriksson is playing NHL.

17 Jul 2019 21:47:45
Exactly. Canucks wouldn’t retain anything.

Vancouver Canucks:

- Nick Paul {39P in 43GP AHL}

- Gabriel Gagne

Ottawa Senators:

- Brandon Sutter {3.5M for 2yrs}

- Olli Juolevi


Vancouver sheds a little bit of cap to help them sign Brock Boeser and Goldobin.

Ottawa lacks depth and veteran leadership on their centre depth and team in general. Sutter is still a good PK and 2-way centre. He brings lots of experience that should be good for the young locker room.

Vancouver adds size to their prospect pool as Nick Paul is 6'4 230lbs and Gagne is 6'5 215lbs.

Vancouver and Ottawa exchange disappointing prospects. Gagne was a 36h overall pick in 2015 and was one of the best PF in the draft. Juolevi's potential is much higher and he's younger so for a rebuilding team taking Sutter's contract is worth it.

Both teams win. Ottawa adds to their defence prospect pool and if Juolevi turns out to be even close to what he was projected, this is a steal for them. Canucks shed salary while also adding size.

No from Vancouver. As I’ve explained twice already, the Canucks are not in a cap crunch. We have 5 mil in cap space, when we trim our roster at the start of the year that will go to 7 mil, and when we put Roussel on LTIR we will have around 10-11. The Canucks are NOT in a cap crunch, we will NOT be overpaying to move out bad contracts, stop with these trash trades and do some research before posting.

15 Jul 2019 21:42:01
Why do people think LTIR solves all there cap problems? I’m thinking Canucks don’t make this trade but Sutter is a contract I’m sure they’d pay to dump.

15 Jul 2019 22:26:05
Gagne went to Toronto and went unqualified, he's an UFA rn. I don't think Vancouver would do this, they’d probably rather try and trade Schaller, Beagle, etc, lower cap hits so less moving cost.

EDM: Puuljajarvi, Russel, 2020 3rd
OTT: Smith, 2021 2nd

VAN: Eriksson, Goldobin, 2020 3rd
ottawa: boroweicki, 2020 4th.

15 Jul 2019 06:29:54
Smith, 2nd = Russell, 3rd
Puljujarvi is a way overpayment.

15 Jul 2019 08:07:47
Ott can keep Borowiecki, otherwise it’s good.

17 Jul 2019 19:44:37
that's a hard no from ottawa on that vancouver trade.

14 Jul 2019 10:44:12
The Montreal Canadiens acquire C Brandon Sutter & 2020 Fourth Round Draft Pick from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for a 2021 Sixth Round Draft Pick

MTL has the Cap Space and a need at Center, VAN needs cap space to sign Boeser.

Sutter ( 4.37 @ 2YR )

The Ottawa Senators acquire RW Loui Eriksson, 2020 Third Round Draft Pick & D Nikita Tryamkin from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for LW Zack Smith

VAN sheds another cap dump and gains a solid bottom 6 player for the penalty kill.

Eriksson ( 6.0M @ 3YR )
Smith ( 3.25M @ 2YR )

The Edmonton Oilers acquire D Olli Juolevi from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for RW Jesse Puljujärvi

Puljujärvi gets a change of scenery and Oilers get another defencemen prospect who has potential to be a top 4 defencemen.

Vancouver Canucks Projected Lines :

J.T Miller - Elias Pettersson - Brock Boeser

Sven Baertschi - Bo Horvat - Micheal Ferland

Tanner Pearson - Adam Gaudette - Jesse Puljujärvi

Zack Smith - Jay Beagle - Jake Virtanen

Alex Edler - Troy Stecher

Quinn Hughes - Chris Tanev

Jordie Benn - Tyler Myers

14 Jul 2019 13:39:15
MTL does not want Sutter and does not have the cap space for Sutter.

14 Jul 2019 15:08:04
That's only half true mantra they do have the cap space.

14 Jul 2019 16:25:06
We’re not trading Tryamkin to get rid of Eriksson, don’t listen to the media; we’re not actually under a cap crunch. Once we send a couple players down and put Roussel on LTIR we have more than enough space to sign everyone and more than enough time to trade a player to free up a couple mil in space without overpaying to dump a player needlessly.

Also, Juolevi>>Pulj. Everyone seems to love talking about Juolevi when they know nothing about him. Juolevi has been killing it and was a lock to make the Canucks roster last year before an unfortunate injury. Pulj has been an absolute bust at the NHL level, and is a total problem off the ice. Who’s to say he’d want to play for the Canucks if we don’t give him everything he wants? For all I know he’ll say trade me or I’m running back to Europe if we don’t give him the ice time HE thinks he’s worth. So no. Oilers can keep Pulj.

14 Jul 2019 16:57:50
Oilers don't need Juolevi they got better D prospects.

14 Jul 2019 23:06:01
Habby MTL does not have the cap space to start taking cap dumps and only getting late picks for the favor. We got rid of Shaw to save 4 million (3.9) so why take more for a worse player and only get a 3 Rd pick? Why?

15 Jul 2019 00:18:26
That's why I said your statement was half true they do have the cap space they just don't want sutter.
