If Chicago is likely to move out East I sure hope these 2 clubs are talking trade. With how we utilize zone starts/matchups, Bolland would be unbelievably valuable IMO...

To Chi- Luongo, Malhotra
To Van- Bolland, Shaw, 2nd

Sedin Sedin Burrows
Higgins Kesler Booth
Raymond Bolland Hansen
Shaw Lapierre Kassian
Weise
Yeah, not seeing it...

Toews, Sharp, Shaw, Kruger...thats servicable enough down the middle. Bolland is basically Higgins at center and while thats a good thing, its not enough for me to hand them a top end goalie.

If he could somehow get Edler to agree to that...I will personally erect a Mike Gillis statue in front of Rogers Arena.

stopped reading there... there are young ones on here Canucklehead


If he can get that done it would be unreal. Still think he comes in closer to $5M though.


I suggest a statue made of Mashed Potatoes.

You're walking into dangerous territory Mr. C. I'm going to have to hold you to that, unlike Jobu who still owes us all a hat eating video.

I didn't say what the statue would be made of. But I will allow myself to be held to that. Might take me a while to get to Vancouver, mind you...

But he's Mike Richards come playoff time. Bolland has a knack for elevating his play when it matters most. He's a notch above Higgins and Hansen IMO.

IMO Gillis needs to look long and hard at bringing in a 2nd line centre, due to Kesler's durability concerns. The team goes into the toilet if Kesler isn't playing at 100% and we need to insulated ourselves from that going forward. IMO a Bozak level player just doesn't do that for us. Plekanec, Weiss, Bolland level centremen should be the type of targets Gillis should be pursuing right now. 2nd line RW looks like the biggest hole on paper but that's a secondary concern IMO.

I don't like the Hawks chances at all against the Canucks in a 7 game series with a Bolland/Luongo swap. AV couldn't lose the matchup war with that trio up the middle and Chicago wouldn't have the edge in net. Not afraid of a Bolland'less Chicago team.

Luongo? Yes. Schneider? No thanks.

Not that big on Leddy either.

I think he'll likely get ~$4.75 mil, maybe even $5 mil.
He and his agent know that they could get a huge paycheck on July 5th (free agency date this year), but he would probably accept less to stay on a cup contender.

6 year 5.1 million for Edler is what I'm predicting.

He's not Mike Richards in the playoffs, he's Mike Richards against US in the playoffs...otherwise he's nothing special. I wouldn't mind any of those guys but I'd probably prefer Plekanec or Weiss over Bolland, but any of those 3 would be nice right now...I just don't place the kind of value on Bolland where I'd trade Luongo to Chicago without more coming back...quite a bit more.

Bolland also just seems to be Bolland vs US like Byfuglien

It's amazing how much we agree when you're not busy losing to me in hockey pools

I think Stephen Weiss would be an amazing pick up and would look good in our top 6:

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Booth-Weiss-Kesler

What would you consider a reasonable "+" from FLA?

to Van: Weiss +
to FLA: Lu

Nothing? Weiss alone is already a pretty nice haul for Luongo.

I will have my revenge.

And yes, Weiss would be nice...Plekanec would be my first choice though I think.

Being able to give Edler a year more than everyone else should help us get the best deal possible.

4.6m x 8 years with max money up front...

6.1m, 6.1m, 5.1m, 5.1m, 4.1m, 4.1m, 3.1m, 3.1m

Would love to see LU go to FLA and absolutely flourish (and dominate TO while there) and make the TO fans angry they didn't trade for him.
