Van-wash

Vancouver - Backstrom, Kozlov, Laich
Washington - Edler, Pyatt, Jaffery

Vancouver gets a #1 center
Washington gets a solid defence men

Washington doesn't touch that with a 10 foot pole.

If you're trying to illustrate how stupid the other proposal was, fine, cool, you did it.

Good for you.

wow, almost as bad as the other proposal...

Backstrom isn't going to be dealt... he's worth much more alone than that package you have from the canucks.

Jaffrey is worth nothing... I doubt you'd get anything more than a 5th or 6th rounder for him, and even then, most teams have better players taking up contract spots for them.

Pyatt has a year left on his deal... I'd guess at most his value is around a 3rd round pick... likely similar to Kozlov.

Edler is the most valuable piece from Vancouver, but why would the caps - who have a young center that can play on the top unit with their franchise player, deal him for a young dmen, on a team that is already stocked with such players (Green, Schultz, Alzner)??

Washington probably isn't going to trade anyone. It will be close, but they are not over the cap once the LTIR moves are made official. They're spending to the cap, or near enough.

Vancouver may need a center, and Washington may have three. That doesn't mean a trade is pending. It just means Vancouver has a need and the Caps have the luxury of three scoring centers. That's all.

And even if Washington did end up trading a center, Backstrom would assuredly not be the one moved. He is going nowhere.

I could see Backstrom being worth Kesler and Edler - but Washington still wouldn't take it IMO.

Nope, not when Backstrom's everything this franchise needs. He was pretty much hand picked to be Ovechkin's setup guy for the next 10+ years.

What's with all the extremely poor Nucks proposals?

We get that they need a proven 2nd line center, but damn... give it a rest...

Very one-sided deal. Washington would never do it.

That's true enough.

But you cant say there isn't a lot of VAN-*** threads floating around.

There's only two proposals that I can see, one of which was started by who I can only assume is an Oiler fan judging by avatar, and the other started by someone with under 15 posts.

He was so scared to go up there, too. I kinda wished they would have continued the tradition, maybe have Backstrom draft Gustafsson (although him coming in 2nd for the Calder probably didn't help).

True, true.. we're in a holding pattern (along with a few other teams) until Mr. Sundin decides what he'd like to do this season, but unlike Montreal we're not in great shape if we go into the season as we are now and unlike Toronto we're not planning on tanking the season, so Canuck fans are getting nervous about the perceived hole at center as training camp approaches.

Myself, I figure if we can't get a guy like Kozlov or Lang on the cheap we'll wait for the end of training camp and see who is made available by young players stepping up and taking jobs from veterans on other teams.

But Washington trading us two inexpensive scoring centers for Alex Edler and a bunch of throw-ins wouldn't be too bad either.

If it makes you feel any better, I think a Laich - for - Edler and some throw-ins could work, just so you guys aren't disappointed I mean...


Nah, that's crazy, half the fanbase would leave if Laich were moved

He's got another year left on his contract (the entire reason we traded him, really).

Vancouver should have just resigned morrison and naslund. They're screwed now, imagine their line-up

Sedin-Sedin-Bernier
Naslund-Morrison-Demitra

I think someone should create a proposal between Carolina and Washington, just to see "Car-Wash" in the title.

I know I'd get a chuckle out of it.

The team needed a cultural change - Naslund and Morrison are a part of the team Brian Burke assembled, and last year their contributions to the Canucks campaign was more or less limited to the scoresheet (and even there it wasn't very impressive).

Even if we have some less desireable players such as Wellwood to fill holes in the lineup for now, it is a transitional period and that IMHO is better than adding a bit to what we had last year.

Again that would be more talented than what we'll ice (unless Gillis pulls something off) but that also means that Raymond is probably down on the farm having his development stunted.

Furthermore Bernier should at least come close to replacing Naslund's ~50 points and will be a physical force out there of the sort the Sedins never get to play with - Demitra should surpass Morrison's production on the second line easily. Heck, he'll probably even surpass Morrison's contribution last year in terms of games played.
