I'm a fan of his , but how much will he cost now? 2mil? He brings physical presence, fighting and okay player skills/goes to corners, but not very effective. I'd love to have him along with White (or even on the 3rd line with Eller) for 1.3mil or less.

He's also close to being a 20 goal scorer when healthy,and I'd much rather see him as a 1st/2nd line sub than Moen or Darsche. He'll get more than $2m imo. 3yrs/$7m sounds about right.

And this points out to a depth problem --> Moen being a sub on the first lines.

I do think that when BG signed him he had hopes that Moen would pursue his developement and become a 15-15 kind of player.

This is not the case.

Besides Pouliot (his potential not his results) we have nothing to provide such depth.

Basics become finding a RW that we can park on the 3rd line, that would complement well a young Eller and could be a more than adequate sub in the top6.

This is a good point but I don't think it will still be true next year with the emergence of Eller, DD and Pacioretty. The way I see it, we have six sure-fire top six forwards for next year: Gionta, Cammalleri, Plekanec, Pacioretty, Kostitsyn and Gomez, two good subs at center with DD and Eller, and two suitable suits at wings with Pouliot and Darche.

The jury is out on Pouliot. Too many stupid penalties is what is putting him in the dog house. Focus being the other element that plagues his play.

Darche is a terrific plug-in but not a permanent fixture. In case of long-term injury, he is not a long-term solution.

you have to believe that PG will sign a top 6 forward/ He tried to trade for 1 at the deadline.There also a possibility of a trade as there is alot of players for the bottom 6 forwards.

Is Brooks Laich good enough to be a regular on the Canucks?

There's no guarantee that AK and/or BP will be back. DD and Eller,though promising, are two unproven rookies,coming off injuries.Darsche should be a 4th liner,and a 3rd line fill-in at best.

He's a better RW than Jannik Hansen and he's on par with Mikael Samuelsson. Laich can also fill in at centre and win > 50% of draws. He would definately be on their top 6.

Thing is, you're not talking about replacing Moen or Darche with Torres, you're saying we should sign him over AK/Laich, That means, Moen or Darche still could see top line action.
Your whining over management would persist due to lack of depth, even if they do exactly what you want.

give me brooks laich all day.
I cant even believe this is even a pole. Laich scores just as much as A-Kost and hes a more complete player and much more versitile.

We will assume that we cannot keep both. We need to make a choice. Which do you favor?

AK >> BL

or

BL >> AK

On a side note, I cannot garner any argument that may elude to this assumption becoming a reality. Why would Laich leave WAS?
It's a somewhat loaded question because one you can resign as he is a RFA and the other may or may not be available in 4 weeks.

Oh boy, taking on Brooks Laich would automatically make the Habs contenders. He's a potential Hart Trophy winner and the Bruins would shake in their skate boots.
