Nucks/Hawks Proposal

Now that TBo has been dealt to Pittsburgh, how about the following proposal:

Hawks get: Jarkko Ruutu
Canucks get: Jim Vandermeer

Salaries balance off, and it looks like the hawks have a lot of depth on the defensive side, and could re-unite the Ruutu brothers.

as a canuck let me just say that IMO the Hawks won't touch this deal.

They need Vandermeer more than they need Ruutu.

No thanks. IMO Jimmy V is a legit heavy and I'm looking forward to see how he develops his play this year. Hawks don't need another 4th/3rd line pest.

We have tons of third and 4th liners. We need a top line forward only.

Vandermeer has impressed the hell out of me the last two seasons. He went from a guy barely known in Philly with little pro experience to a guy that is an extremely solid top 4 dman. Plus he is only 25 with a mean streak. Its great bang for your buck guys like Vandermeer that will make teams good in a cap world, Jarkko really doesnt bring all that much to the table other than being a future superstar's brother

Jarkko is a player that fills a role, but we have that role filled by a better hockey player in Matthew Barnaby. Vandermeer should be on the second pairing with Spacek. He's got a mean streak for sure and can maul people. He's probably our best fighter, with Lapointe having the ability to destroy someone if properly motivated.

It'd make Tuomo happy...possibly sparking his play.

It might, but you don't trade a player like Vandermeer for that possibility. I was friggin pumped when Hawks got Vandermeer in that Zhamnov deal, just a kind of player that most Hawks fans want to see.

How about Jason King and Jarko Ruutu for Kyle Calder?

Would Hawks fans consider any of the following for Vandermeer:

Ruutu + 2nd

or

King + 2nd

or

2nd + 3rd

or

Cooke (possibly, I dunno about the value on that one)

Hilarious that you're joining Calder and Naslund in the same sentence here, even if it is a joke...

Jason King is a raw rookie that scored 15 goals last year and could develope into a 30 goal scorer with the Hawks. Proposal:

Vandermeer
for
Brother Jarko, Jason King

Thats fair.

We have enough 3rd/4th liners. Even though it's "fair", it doesn't make sense for us to do it.

No thank you.

We have our own young players to fill out the 4th line.

Fair has very little to do with it. We're stock full of lower line forward talent, but we can name the NHL ready defenseman we have on one hand.

Boy Canucks fans are sure keen on Vandermeer...

Someone let them know there's another one in the NHL (sort of)!
