Dreger tweeted this morning that Canucks may be looking to make more moves

Vancouver and Florida make a significant early season trade. Not surprised,a lot of discussion around the league. Canucks may not be done.

id like Bieksa but the Rangers would have to move Wolski in a trade and doubt Canucks want him since they traded for David Booth


id love a guy like Nick Schultz from the Wild. i bet his value would be a first round pick at least, and thats too much

good good. The top team last yr is looking to make moves and has already so why not the Rangers.

Bieksa would be a good fit. He's got Jam too

I would be the Rangers are targeting Zidlicky though. He's a vet and the Wild may take a package Wolski , Christensen, Eminger

Rangers/Wild make an interesting combo

2 yrs left on Zidlicky at 4 million, 1 yr on Wolski

Would love some offensive firepower, gotta imagine MZA, EC, and Wolski are all available.

****** situation for us, with Staal and Sauer we'd be trading to bolster our offense but instead we have to try get a D-man.

If the Rangers are looking to add a top 4 dman things aren't looking good for Staal's return....

Would like Bieska, don't see Vancouver dealing him though. How is it Vancouver can go get a guy like Booth, yet we're looking at guy's like Brule...lol ...Nobody wants what we have to offer

My only reservation would be Zanon has taken some dumb penalties at critical points in a game a few times that I was paying attention to a Wild game which makes me wonder about all the games of theirs i didn't watch.

But, he is a steady stay at homeer and blocks alot of shots which fits our plan.

I agree it is a crappy situation as they need a LW more than a Dman when healthy but I won't complain if they can add an offensive Dman as they don't seem to have one.

I like DZ but if they can get a very talented Dman with some experience well I could see them moving the kid. It's not like they don't have kids on D still

The Wild do not have the greatest offense either and I could see them moving a Zidlicky who has 2 yrs left for a Wolski plus and give him a shot

Bieksa just took a hometown discount with what im sure is some kind of movement clause. Salo is playing great, so his cost would be high. He's also a band-aid boy and old.

If we can get a guy like Beiska it would look like this when healthy..

Staal-Girardi
McD-Sauer
MDZ-Beiska

Hanke is going to have shut outs every game lol.

4.6 million a year is a lot to pay a guy to be a 3rd pair D.

I like DZ but if they can get a very talented Dman with some experience well I could see them moving the kid. It's not like they don't have kids on D still
I like MDZ too, but have started to come to the conclusion that with all the telent he does have, his lack of timeing sense is a major problem for the style of play that makes the most of his skills.

Considering Erixon has show he can be an efective puck mover although he is basically making the 'safe' plays at this point in his young NHL career, and McDonagh has been given the green light as of late to prove whether he can be relied upon to carry the puck without sacrificing defensive play, plus you have Girardi who has decent puck skills when he isn't in the role of 'defensive anchor' while Staal is out & we have Richards as our PPQB for the forseeable future, I could see an arguement for moving MDZ to Calgary for Babchuk.

I don't know if Babchuk is great defensively as far as positioning but he scores well, gets 2-3 blocks a game, and was double digets in the plus column last year. Babchuk & Richards could give us a leathal PP backline.

I've had so much hope for Del Zotto and dismissed bone head play after bone head play, but for all the skill he has I'm not sure he has the thought process to make the right play under pressure. When he was in his own corner last night and pressured to move the puck he turned and sent the puck straight to the top of the circle to a streaking Edmonton player. Instead of up the boards he tried one of his homerum passes through traffic in a pressure situation, from deep in the zone too.

I'm losing faith in the kid & with BR on the point & 3 other guys showing they are more then defensive plugs, I'm wondering if the 'cost/benefit' of MDZ's boom or bust potential isn't worth reconsideration with a guy like Babchuk being benched going on 4 out of the last 5 games now.

I'm on the fence, but reason/reality is starting to suggest opportunity may be presenting itself.
