    Default a canucks trade proposal

    Vancouver needs some physicality on defence and they have room to take on a "bad" contract from a team that doesn't have too much cap space. Plus this opens up room for Joulevi so what do you think?
    To Chicago
    - D. Pouliot
    To Vancouver
    - C. Murphy
    Thoughts?

    Why would Vancouver take on a bad contract just to get physical? If you are taking on a bad contract, you usually get back more then just the bad contract. There has to be some reward for taking that bad contract.


    10 Team, Points Only, Cash League

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, JaBenn, Couture, Wheeler, Lee, Turris, Letang, Kucherov, Byfuglien, Burns, Zuccarello, Hoffman, JSchwartz, KPalmieri, KConnor, Athanasiou, Bjorkstrand, Point, KHayes, Konecny, Vrana, NSchmaltz

    G- Vasilevskiy, Bobrovsky

    That is a good idea. Maybe Matt Iacopelli will get it done

    Not sure where that name came from as someone who would get it done but ok. I had to google who he was. Not sure a guy who's considered fringe prospect would tempt Vancouver to bring in Murphy for Pouliot.

    Also, how does trading away Pouliot for Murphy open up a spot for Juolevi?

    Because it improves the weak right side for Vancouver and opens space on the stronger left side

    If you're talking bad contract, why not look at acquiring Hossa's? He just retired and if I'm not mistaken, still owed a few years. He hasn't officially come out saying he is retired so could the Hawks not put him on LTIR and possibly make a deal to take on his 5+ million per year cap? Wouldn't it sort of be like the Horton/Clarkson deal?
    12 team lifetime pool. 19 skaters - No positional requirements / 3 goalies (2 count for points)
    Taxi Squad - players have 5 year protection then must be called up or dropped.
    Goals and Assists count for points. Goalies get 1.5 for a win / 4.5 pts for a SO and points for G/A.

    Skaters:
    Panik, Jankowski, Bjork, Anisimov, Sheary, Eakin, Zetterberg, Wood, Athanasiou, Vesey, Bratt, Compher, Kaprizov, Brodie, Ekblad, Shattenkirk.

    Goalies:
    Varlamov, Ward

    Taxi:
    Ho-Sang, Dal Colle, Kamenev, Hawryluk, Demko, R. Thomas, Sprong, Kyrou, Liljegren.

    They are trying to keep fans in the seats, not remove them.

    Juolevi can earn a spot if he is good enough, they don’t need to make room. The D group is frankly pathetic and if Juolevi can’t break in then he’s not NHL ready.

    Hossa will be put on LTIR which means his contract does not effect their cap. This also gets Chicago off of the hook for any penalties in case of early retirement, because they will just keep Hossa on the LTIR until his contract runs out (despite Hossa saying he's done with hockey, he won't officially retire and give up what he is owed).

    His contract may also be insured, which means that Chicago wouldn't even have to pay the real money, but I don't know if that is the case or not.

    Regardless, Chicago doesn't strike me as a team hurting for cash these days, so I don't think they have much of a reason to give up an asset so someone else can put Hossa on the LTIR.

    The Horton/Clarkson deal was only made because CLB did not insure Horton's contract, and they had to pay him the full amount to not play. Therefore, with CLB being a team on more of a bduget, they contacted Toronto to swap for Clarkson, so at least they would be paying a player who was playing in their lineup. That Clarkson eventually found the LTIR himself was somewhat ironic, but I do not know if his contract was insured.

    Just because there is room for a bad contract it doesn't mean you actively seek one unless it somehow benefits your organization in a worthy way. This doesn't cut it for me.

    I know the real motivation for this thread is the OP's obsession with body checks, not to mention the OP's obsession with Mason Raymond. It's very weird.

    both sides suck dog balls. I think Van is pleased with Pouliot's first year. he's their best PP Dman, he's not going anywhere. They need to trade for MORE D, not swap.

    If you want a bad a contract and to get more physical, you can kill 2 birds with one stone by taking Cal Clutterbuck off the Islanders hands please.

    I don't mind the Canucks taking on bad contracts in the interim for picks/prospects. Were probably not ready to compete for another 2-3 years anyway. However as for the OP's statement, I see no reason to get "tougher", it's not even in the top 5 of needs in today's NHL. Also Canucks need to be betting on potential high upside players like Pouliot not trading them for plug and plays who have capped out.
