At least y'all aren't in the same division. Our vengeance is very overdue.

Yeah. A Kings fan doesn't know the half of it. Columbus fans have to absolutely hate us.

Interestingly enough, we don't really need one at this point, since we've got three serviceable top-6 guys (Vermette, Umberger, Brassard). The priority's a #1 defenseman, since the only guy we have with pretensions towards top-pairing status is Hejda, and he's more of a #2-#3 specialist. (That said, Moore and Goloubef are looking better and better every day...)

Of course, it'd be nice to have a legit #1C, but, y'know, first things first.

We've got our fingers crossed with Arniel. And if he doesn't work out, maybe Boughner gets a promotion.

(yeah, that particular hiring still has me shocked and amazed. hope we can keep him for a while...)

A new powerplay coach. Thats all we need. The roster is solid.

Ek has us in on Stepniak and/or Cogliano. We have enough top 6 forwards. I dont know where we'd get the money for one of these guys (barring a dumont trade)

At the SOTU Trotz said he will be running the PP this year. He also said we need to be less stagnant and take what the other team is giving us. I think having guys that like to move around and like to make plays will help matters. We still may pass too much but I think things will open up more with guys like Wilson and Lombardi out there full time.

Now now, this is not a *****slapping contest between Nashville and Columbus thread. (As much as I'm enjoying watching Viqsi squirm. *Evin grin*)

As for the thread:

Back-up vet goalie.

5th/6th/7th vet defenseman

A keg of Gentleman Jack to feed 101st.

A master of Governmental paperwork evasion for Volde

Liposuction for BFC to lose those last 20 lbs

I was there. That was the first game Vokoun missed with his blood clot. I remember having a big "WTF??" moment when Mason and Rinne skated out for warmups

If he buries a few more, he probably hits 40 and Legwand and Erat are in the 70 point range themselves. With a history of wrist, hip and head injuries, I'd have to pass on him at this point. His quick release isn't what it used to be. We'll have someone here next year that will finish plays and is a true sniper.
I have always thought Nashville and Vancouver could be great trading partners. Both teams have an abundance of the type of player the other team needs. Neither wants to part with those players, but if they would, both teams would be a better team for it. Nashville's strength is in the area of top 4 defensemen. Vancouver's strength is in the area of top 6 forwards.

When I say strength, what I mean is that if the team ever traded one of the players from their strength, the team would not significantly suffer with the player they have who could replace the traded player. What I mean by the team being a better team is that the player coming would inprove the team's ability to win more than the loss of the player traded harms the team's chances to win.

Both teams are good enough as they are that they should make the playoffs. In other words, niether team has to trade, it is just that they would be stronger as a team if they did. Of the two teams, Vancouver is currently the stronger.

Nashville seems to need skilled, offensive forwards who will complement those forwards Nashville already has. That's important, it's not only the skill level Nashville needs, its how well that skilled player plays with Nashvilles current core forwards.

You rightly so point out that a player like PK is not the most suitable forward to fill the hole in your top six. He's still a great offensive forward, but he is not the finisher skilled forward a centre like Legwand needs. A forward like Sameulsson would fill that position far better. Not as flashy as PK, but he puts up the points. The other areas I see a need for Nashville is a need for more depth of top six prospects and a need to improve the agressiveness on the team both on the forwards and defense. Your team isn't small, but they don't use that size enough.

The Canucks need mainly two, maybe three areas of improvement. They need to dump about $2.5 to $3M of salary. That won't be that difficult, but they may not get full value for the players they trade unless those players are sought after by more then one team. The Canucks are still looking for a better 4th line centre then who they have now. Currently it is Rypien and he is far more suited to RW. Last, though the Canucks now have great depth on defense, both roster and prospects, they still lack a true #1 defenseman or even a prospect that likely can become a true #1 defenceman. Edler has the greatest chance to mould into a #1, but is more likely to peak as a solid #2.

Players the Canucks likely want to keep, but could trade for the right return (not all, but some) would be Bieksa (likely will be by Christmas to reduce salary. Hes a solid #4 with a mean, physical side of him), O'Brian (if Bieksa isn't traded - again due to salary), Samuelsson (hard to trade a cheap 30+ goal scorer), Hansen, Raymond, Hodgson, Schroeder, Shirokov (all great top six prospects, but you have to give value to get value). One Nashville player I could see the Canucks really interested in would be Jerred Smithson as a fix for out 4th line centre.
