This was in the Province today. Bieksa for Fleischman (sp?). Both of them were scratches for their last games. Washington needs a dman and Fleischman had like 24 goals last year, struggling this year. In the right position he could do well, but the 24 goals might just be the result of Washingtons firepower and higher scoring East conference. Doubt he would be able to produce that number again unless playing with the Sedins. Is he a fit for the 4th line i dunno but is an upgrade on Rypien or whatever plug we got on the 4th at the time.

fleischmann's name seems to pop up in trade rumours for bieksa, not because he fits a team need or because he is the kind of player mike gillis likes, but simply because he appears to be available

this confirms to me that this is unfounded speculation by reporters needing something to write about more than anything else

Bieksa wasn't a healthy scratch. He had the flu (or so says Canucks management).

Fleischmann ends up going to Colorado in exchange for Scott Hannan.

So does this trade set the market for Bieksa if Salo comes back? Fleischmann is arguably a top-6 forward, so if we can get anything close to that kind of return for Bieksa, I'd be pretty ecstatic.

Fleischmann was more of a third-liner for Washington; averaged around the same ice-time per game as Torres. Also an impending UFA so I'd say the value is comparable I suppose.

Thing Bieksa has going for him: You pay for offense. So while Hannan was able to garner a 2nd/3rd line tweener, I have to think Bieksa would get more. Add the right shot, and the fact that the Canucks would look for prospects and picks instead of proven NHL talent, then a strong team could relinquish more assets for him than Washington did for Hannan.


I hope Gillis waits closer to the deadline. More teams could take Bieksa's contract on then. Not to mention, desperate teams would shell out more non-NHL assets as compensation.
