In terms of the playoffs, he offers neither scoring, grit, nor especially effective defense. I don't see him as the kind of player who attracts the typical deadline overpayments.

If the Nucks were to give up a 2nd rounder for a player at Pyatt's level right now, you guys would be pretty annoyed.

I'll continue to peg his value around what the Nucks paid - perhaps a bit more (like a 3rd rounder - maybe).
Agree with this. IMO, Pyatt is worth a 2nd rounder in terms of impact for the Canucks, but it's certainly not anything close to what he would actually get. Which is why I would hate to trade him, especially for a salary dump. He's more important to this team's success than most people think.
