Well he had a pretty decent year last year, 23 goals, 14 assists. He seems like he would give a more consistent effort throughout the year. And has size similiar to Hossa. So it might be an inexpensive option, if he is a free agent.

I definetly believe he is a little more proven and has a higher upside compared to Marcel. However I would rather go back to

Straka-Nylander-Jagr

Agreed.

Keep 1st liners on the 1st line, 2nd liners on the 2nd line, and 3rd liners on the 3rd line (No Hossa on the first, Cullen on the 2nd, Avery on the 2nd etc). Let the players play their roles and what line they are best on (If that does mean a rare Hossa on the first once and awhile then i'm fine with it, but he has to excel from it, if he doesn't do anything move him ASAP).

Part of our problem this season was having players play in roles they shouldn't been put it and not play up to their potential.

Yea, I agree 100% but I want to add to your last statement. I don't blame Renney at all for not having the proper players in their respective roles but I put the blame on not having a true 2nd line center. Once we get a legit 2nd line center, everyone else just falls into place. Puts Cullen on the 3rd line, or if he is already on the 3rd line then it also keeps Avery from having to play center when I think he is better at his role as a winger (preferably on the 3rd line, but he can play 2nd line as well). So the only free agent I would add this summer, if any, would be a legit proven 2nd line center.

Maybe you should check out the Forsberg on Broadway thread. I like your thinking.

Yeah but not Forsberg, too injury prone and seems to have lost a step (probably due to his foot injury tho). So if that foot is fine then MAYBE take a chance on him, but I was thinking more along the lines of the Drury and Gomez type.

I know a lot of people want Dubinsky to have the 3rd line slot, but seeing Cullen's play elevate at the 3rd line center position compared to the 2nd line center(not wing) shows he has to stay on that 3rd line. I don't see Avery taking 4th line minutes either. The guy was one of our most important cogs down the stretch.

I have been talking about Pyatt all year long...but not as a first line player. I just don't think it's in the cards. He is a damn good skater. He can play, but I don't think he's a first line player. I do however think it would be a great move if the Rangers picked the guy up. Throw him on the 3rd line with Cullen. Both guys have wheels, and I think they play a similar game. He could definately bring some scoring to that line. I like having baby brother in the system also. Plus...he's only 26 or 27 yrs old. He's got the whole package. 6'4, decent hands, and a good skater. I heard the knock on him from the Vancouver board is he is at time afraid to get his nose dirty, and doesn't play physical enough for his size. I think the risk factor though with him is low, and it probably wouldn't take much to entice him here. $1,500,000- $1,750,000 should do it.

I did read somewhere though that he wanted to stay in Vancouver.

Pyatt IMO would be a good addition. He can skate and has size. He is still fairly young and seems to be producing more. He was drafted to be a power forward and maybe his game is finally coming around. It takes time for some big guys.

Hossa will be better on the 4th line if you give him a better center to play with who can give offensive help with Defensive mind as well...

Guys, let's not overrate Pyatt, he played with the Sedins.

Put Hossa with the Sedins and watch him score 30 goals.

And yes I've watched at least 40% of the Canucks regular season games and Pyatt is nothing special IMO.

You have to be kidding me... This is about as stupid as it was giving Cullen close to 3 Mill last year.

We don't even have room for Dawes right now! And you want to add in another 3rd line winger and take away cap room needed for the real thing we need a 1st/2nd line center!

The only thing I would like about it... is the chance of Tom and Tayler playing together. But seriously how many Brother combinations have worked out besides the Sedins? Plus Tom won't be ready for a good 2 years.

I take Hossa and the 1Mill cap space over Pyatt any day of the week. In fact I would rather see dawes, bourret, or korpedo in the spot over pyatt.

agree 10000% on both cullen and avery.

3rd line next year will be avery/prucha-cullen-callahan
