Manny Malhotra

He's a serviceable 4th liner. With a face off specialty, what's his value?

A team that's not good at face-offs like the Oilers might offer a 3rd or 4th, but it would be pretty disrespectful to ask him to waive his NTC after everything hes been through with our organization. Plus, the guys love him.

Let him finish the year and give him a coaching job, if he wants it.

Someone is going to get a crack at him, rumors are he has been sent down.

He did participate in today's skate and AV responded "he doesn't know if Malhotra will play tomorrow"

I'd re-sign him near league minimum, if he wanted to take that discount, and have him on the 4th line; his mentoring/veteran presence and face offs would be worth a roster spot IMO.

bingo, no problem with Manny as a fourth line/PK player/Faceoff guy it's just his contract is way too much for that role. If he signs for about 1 mill I would love him back

Not going anywhere.

Re-sign him at 800k - 1 Mill next year.

This guy will be key in the playoffs, not sure why you want to get rid of the best faceoff guy in the league.

Under no circumstances should he be re-signed.The loyalty & respect shown him after his injury says alot about that Canucks org but even as a 4th line FO speciality guy there are better uses for his cap space.The guy has never been the same after that horrible injury & any thought of re-signing him is pure sentimentality.

Since his injury he is not worth the money he makes now, but he is still a serviceable fourth liner and FO specialist. I would be more than happy to give up 900k-1 mill for that so after his contract expires if we willing to go for it than I would do it. Also brings a good locker room presence.

If he goes on waivers before Ebbett I will not be impressed. Hopefully no one picks him up so we can have him in the locker room if (when) we get to the playoffs.

He wins face offs but who gets the puck most of the time right after?
Lives and dies on the face off and if we are not using him on both ends of the ice than I see better uses for our 4th line.

Dont worry. This thread is likely in response to who gets exposed to waivers when Kesler and Booth come back.

without injury 2 need exposure to meet the roster limit.

Ebbett is the first when Kesler returns. What about when Booth is ready ?

Well thats where all the debate begins . Some somehow suggest we ripe a hole in our second/ third line center and send him down cuz he is waiver exempt. Lol. Thats just great

But unless Schroeder plays like crap until then it aint happening. Whats really at stake would be Volpatti, or Weise or my first choice, Cam Barker.

I doubt anyone picks up Barker and even if so we dont lose much. We can call up a Chicago D as the 9th guy.

But some have even thought of exposing Manny to waivers, which is a joke. A whole raft of teams clamber around to claim the guy if their cap can take it. He is a fantastic rental , especially off waivers for free. There is no way he goes on waivers.

So if he isnt the odd man out, then there is no need to try to trade him quick for value.

Barker will be the second guy exposed to waivers.

The guy turns 33 this year --it's not reasonable to carry a 900,000 to a million $vet player to play 4th line ,just to win fo's,if he can teach others to more successful at FO's then hire him as a coach--in short I wouldn't use that cap space on an asset that is that one dimensional when other centres may need the spot.

He can competently play a fourth line role, so if he accepts fourth line money for it then I would go for it.

I cant agree with this. I would like to see Manny's medical records. If the doc swears up and down he has most of the vision in his eye, then I re sign him for 1mil .

Mannys going to tell you he is fine regardless.

If the doc tells us his eye is shot , or less than 75% , I cant spend a bunch of money on him. I also dont feel comfortable with him playing the game he likes to play with one good eye. What if something happens to the other eye? I cant live with having a hand in blinding the guy.

I try to retire him and give him a front office job.

Actually he should, he is the best faceoff man in the league. As a 4th line center making somewhere in the neighborhood of 900k, he would be a very good 4th line center.

Not sure why people want to get rid of him, he is a very servicable 4th line center, he cuts into Kesler's defensive minutes and Henriks defensive zone faceoffs.

Exactly, he is so unappreciated gosh. Not the 10/11 player. But still a solid 4th line player, who will be re-signed for cheaper.

Ebbett first, then.. Hmm.. I don't know. I guess Barker would have to be the guy but.. Idk my guess is maybe Schroeder. Although I am in favor of keeping him here.

I guess we will see how it goes, but Manny is going nowhere that's for sure.

Lol, ignorance at it finest.

We would be major losers, especially to give him up for a 4th or 5th.

We paid over a million for Ryan Johnson as a faceoff guy, there are plenty of older guys around the league that are useful in bottom 6/4th line roles.

Manny will take less and will be re-signed, he is still a very serviceable 4th liner, and won't command much cash.

It has happened before and will happen again. Manny stays.
