would the canucks be interested in any of the players available?
some names that pops out at me are
-todd harvey- he is a klatt-type of player, might he fit here?
-boucher- would be good pick up if we hadnt already trade for hedberg
-shane willis- possible 2nd line scoring
-bill muckalt- see willis
-Ivan Novoseltsev- see muckalt
-Jaroslav Bednar- see novoseltsev
I'm not sure how much he's making, but I think waiting on it and taking Todd Simpson would have been a more ideal choice then Slegr. Looking back is of course useless as we had no clue he would be unprotected, but in my eyes he would be the ideal #6/7 for us. Adding undeniable grit and character to our blueline...he would be an upgrade over Baron in that department.
Very surprised Phoenix left him unprotected and damn...he would be a lot nicer to have then Slegr. Though I'm not at all down on Jiri.
Todd Simpson will be gone by the time we get our first pick, most likely
I agree. But wouldn't he be an ideal acquisition for the Canucks. He'd be the type of trade deadline acquistion I could see Burke doing to set us up for the playoffs...a very gritty, sandpaper defenseman with a lot of character and experience.
