Next season's roster (all trade, ufa signing, and re-signing discussion)

Probably way too early for this but I'm actually less deflated than in season's past. The Canucks beat the Sharks the same way the Hawks did - overwhelming team speed and aggressive D. DW needs to find a way to counter that. A tweak in the system, add a speedier top 6 fwd and another D.

Best thing like many of us have been waiting for is Huskins and Wallin are UFA.

So, what I'd like to see (and with a view towards reality):
  • Seto signed for 1-yr, $2.25 or a 2-yr/$2.5
  • Find a top 4 dman in the mold of Brent Burns, Weber (too costly/out of reach), JBo (trade Heater??)
  • (Minor deals - wouldn't really care one way or the other): Re-sign Eager (1yr/$1m), Wellwood (1yr/$1m) and White (2yrs/$2.75)
  • Trade or sign a speedy top 6 (or top 9) fwd. Candidates? I don't know much about Larose or Jokinen. I wouldn't mind Higgins on our 3rd line.

Big questions:
1. Can we deal Heatley?
2. Should we re-sign White?
3. How do we add more speed into the top 9 fwd set?
4. What should our top 4 dman be after Boyle, Demers, Vlasic. We need a Coburn, Burns, JBo?? We won't get Staal or Weber.

Edit: 2011-12 RFA draft pick compensation
(offer sheet value (annual cap hit): compensation (2012 draft))

Less than $1,034,249: No compensation
More than $1,034,249 -- $1,567,043: Third-round pick
More than $1,567,043 -- $3,134,088: Second-round pick
More than $3,134,088 -- $4,701,131: First and third-round pick
More than $4,701,131 -- $6,268,175: First, second and third-round pick
More than $6,268,175 -- $7,835,219: Two first-round picks, a second and third
More than $7,835,219 and higher: Four first-round picks

Everyone else with the exception of Mitchell, Huskins, Wallin, and maybe Heatley.

Sick of this season for some reason. Not just b/c of this loss. Mainly b/c DW never really did much about the D.

Also way too early to tell but I hope the Nucks lose one of (or both) Ehrhoff and Bieksa. That would make my offseason just like how the Hawks got broken up.

Bring back Wellwood and White for sure. Heatley,Wallin,Huskins AND NIEMI have to go. I liked what i saw out of Desjardins and McGinn on the 4th line. Bring in Ferreiro for Mayers and that would be a impact 4th line game in and game out.

You can't have a 4th line with no veteran presence.

as muhc as i like him, heater is not even coming close to that 7.5 contract he has. we need a better defense, we need more money in there, we need another #1 who can dominate play when he's on the ice.

I want Eager - Desjardins - McGinn as the the 4th line. Solid speed and energy.

I want a top 9 speedy fwd - someone like Higgins (whom I wanted this past offseason) could be a great fit.

As much as I can agree and advocate moving Dany Heatley, I am 99% sure that it is not going to happen. 7.5 mil plus an NMC? Who would be willing to take him in general, much less that team be a team Dany wants to play for AND how the hell are we going to not take back what we sent out when we first got him anyway.

try to rid ourselves of Heatley - inconsistent and nowhere near worth that salary.

If I see Huskins or Wallin part of this team next year my head will explode.

Ben Eager is not the kind of veteran presence I want on the 4th line. I don't mind him being around as a big energy guy willing to drop them but Jamal Mayers is a good guy to keep around because he played well when he was out there in the playoffs and has by all accounts been good in the locker room especially with the younger pluggers.

Well, maybe the Flames for JBo, another overpaid player? I'd consider that. JBo would be a solid #2 and pretty good shutdown dman. Wouldn't be subjected to the harshness of Canadian media.

Sure, Mayers would be fine. Bit worried that he's getting up there in age and not as tough as Eager. A Brad Winchester would be good on the 4th line. We'd just want someone tough there so Clowe or Murray wouldn't have to be the tough guys to drop the gloves.

everywhere says he doesn't have an NTC. i don't know who or what we could trade him for though. might just do it for the salary dump. as i recall, his actual contract is pretty low the last few years. we have to go HARD after one of the UFA dmen. bieska likely will be a huge target. DW loves guys that beat us.

How much would we pay for Bieksa? I think it'd take $5m per for 4 yrs to get him here. Imagine that. Zero sum pain to the Canucks.

I don't think Petrecki is ready, thought I can't say I watch him enough.

I think they let Nichol and Wallin go, other than that I'm interested to see how much this team changes.

Mayers is not as imposing as Eager but he is certainly as tough as him. As much as most people like to bag on Mayers, he plays the role exactly how you want a guy to do so. Ideally, your 4th line has a fighter, a veteran, and a young spark plug. If two of them can effectively kill penalties, that's even better. Mayers is one of those killers. I'm hoping either Desjardins or McGinn can be molded into a killer. I really like McGinn's energy and if he can be made to focus more, he'd make an effective killer with his speed.

How about we get a assist coach that can teaches our players how to pass, and bring a different philosophy to the PP. The sharks passing on the power play is way to slow it makes the play to predictable and easy to stop.

Capgeek has him with an NMC. Nobody ever substantiated the THN story of the clause being dropped. Pollak did confirm it but never followed up and when I asked him about it, he said he got mixed information. Until I hear otherwise, the CBA has clauses follow the player through trades.

And even if he didn't have the NMC, I find it very difficult that DW would move him after all the effort he gave to make it happen plus the fact that the market for him likely includes a lot of cap dollars returning for much less statistical quality than we get out of Heatley now.

Dany Heatley won't get traded. We might as well start from that point and move forwards people - why would (A) SJ 'force out' guys on a NMC after they reach the conference finals? (and (B) Heatley waive?... he's got it good). It would be a PR disaster - not happening at all, so best to accept it and move on rather than moan...

Biggest trade bait for me has to be Clowe. It depends whether Mashinter can come up and play on the 4th line. Him or Setoguchi look like pieces that could be used for a deal to get a better blueline presence... You have to give something of value and Clowe is coming off a decent year buut he looks the most replaceable skill set right now...
