Vancouver-Columbus

To Vancouver: Derek McKenzie
To Columbus: Andrew Ebbett/Dale Weise + 3rd round pick

With the loss of Malhotra the Canucks are now lacking a reliable left handed faceoff guy on their 4th line. Columbus looks to be building for the future so I figure there could be interest in adding a pick for a career 4th liner. The Jackets also receive a serviceable 4th liner of their own to go with the pick.

Thoughts?

Have no idea who Mckenzie is, but I'd trade away Ebbett for free, so would do it if it's him. Would rather keep Weise, though.

Columbus would get first crack at Ebbett on waivers so i guess he is just a freebie on this deal.

Is Weise and a 3rd worth this Mc Kenzie guy? I dont know much about him.

Agreed with VanKillerWhale. I'd do Ebbet in a heart beat, but not Weise.

MacKenzie would basically give us what Malhotra did except he can take an even strength shift. I personally don't care for Weise and I think Mackenzie is worth the 3rd.

Of the two, Weise seems preferable, but I think it'd ultimately be worth it with Ebbett instead regardless. Many of us love DMac, but he's likely to end up squeezed out with future roster considerations, so getting value for him would be a good idea.

Besides, it continues the ongoing tradition of us providing your defensive centers for y'all.

I feel like we overpay.

For this price I would rather just give Pinnizzotto a shot and look elsewhere.

I saw it exactly the same way. Hopefully we could do for DMac better than we did for Pahlsson as far as a playoff run is concerned!

Pinizzotto's been injured for the past three months, so I don't see that working out.

Basically it's a 3rd round pick to upgrade Ebbett. MacKenzie's averaged 8 goals, 10 assists and 174 hits over the past two years (at 65 games per year), and 53.5% on faceoffs as a left hander. He's also signed through next year at $1 million. We gave up similar packages for Lapierre, Pahlsson and Higgins as UFA rentals. I think the value is pretty fair.

I think those players are all a bit better. This 3rd is more valuable too. Just look at the market right now, Tangradi went for a 7th, Loktionov went for a 5th, Ellerby went for a 5th, Ponikarovsky went for a 4th and 7th.

After looking at that list I don't know how the case could be made Mackenzie is worth a 3rd+.

Tangredi hasn't proven to be an NHL player. He was given a chance for the last three seasons in Pittsburgh and has one goal to show for it. Loktionov asked for a trade and the Kings took what they could get. Ellerby hasn't shown to be a capable NHL player yet either. Ponikarovsky is UFA at the end of the year.

A third might be a touch high, but a 4th is probably a touch low. Either way I think the value is pretty fair.

He's really a journeyman depth player. I would do Ebbett + 4th maybe at the most, but I don't think he is worth more than that myself.

And I know the players are different, but the point is they are all more valuable than Mckenzie, even with the circumstances attached.

If it's a choice between that and just a 3rd, we'd prefer the 3rd. We stand a chance of losing our 3rd this year (it goes to NYR unless they make the Cup finals), so insurance would be nice.

I just don't think he is worth a 3rd honestly. Especially this year.

I don't see why Vancouver fans are panicking to get a replacement for Malhotra. We're currently 8-2-2, and will be replacing Malhotra with Kesler for the next game. We'll be fine. If push comes to shove we can acquire someone at the deadline, but I don't think it's needed.

I'm just curious to see what the trade market looks like this year. There could be 20 teams looking at buying, and I can see insane prices being thrown around for marginal and average players.

If we could get an insanity price for DMac, you damn well bet I'd take it. But given the prices going around right now, I'm not sure how likely that is.

Then again, I've never seen the market in operation in a shortened season and thus what effects that has.

Yeah the market has been bizarre lately. I thought the Loktionov for 5th deal was just a one off, then we saw Ellerby for a 5th, Tangradi for a 7th and Ponikarovsky for 4th + 7th.

Trade deadline day will certainty be interesting this year.

This is where we disagree I guess.

Personally I just don't like Weise. I think he's more of a bad 3rd liner than a good 4th liner. He lacks direction in his play. It's probably an unfounded dislike, but it's a strong one.

I would much rather have a 4th line of Higgins-MacKenzie-Lapierre than Higgins-Lapierre-Weise.

Because, y'know, Vancouver just isn't quite hated enough.

I suspect Phoenix would prefer to keep him, but I dunno.

I wouldn't.

Kassian brings his physicality. But is better in every other area and knows when to hit and when not to hit.

Higgins or Raymond (The way he is playing) is a major upgrade over Raffi as a 3rd Line LWer right now anyways and no reason to waste assets to use him on the 4th when we have Volpatti & Weise.

Both players will be sitting once Booth is back as well. Volpatti at least knows his role but is a terrible hockey player. Dale "Muffins" Weise is just a waste of a roster spot right now. Someone will be exposed to waivers with Booth returning and Schroeder not being sent down most likely.

I don't know if we're panicing. I was always felt safe that for big faceoffs we would have sedin/maholtra or kesler/lapierre in case someone gets tossed from the dot.

I'm sure we'll be fine.

Ebbett will be sent down.

With Manny being placed on LTIR I'm pretty sure only 1 player will have to go.
