Canucks sign Baertschi to two-year extension - Vancouver Canucks - News

Quote:
Vancouver, B.C. – Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has signed forward Sven Baertschi to a two-year contract extension. The contract will carry a value of $1,700,000 in the first year and a value of $2,000,000 in the second year for an annual average value of $1,850,000.

Baertschi, 23, appeared in 69 games for the Canucks last season where he set career-highs in a number of categories including goals (15), assists (13), points (28), power play goals (2), power play points (7), game-winning goals (1) and shots (107). The 5-11, 189-pound forward has appeared in 138 regular season NHL games split between Vancouver and Calgary, collecting 58 points (25-33-58) and 40 penalty minutes.

A native of Bern, Switzerland, Baertschi was originally selected by Calgary in the first round, 13th overall, at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. He was acquired by Vancouver from the Calgary Flames in exchange for Vancouver’s second round pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft on March 2, 2015.
I think this is decent value for him, lets just hope he works his ass off over summer and last year was just a start of his potential

It's worth it as long as Baertschi is consistent on his play. When he's on his game, him and horvat were dynamite.

I approve of this signing. He did good with Bo Horvat, let's keep the line together and see what happens.

I think it's an excellent deal. Gives the kid a solid 2 years to continue to improve, and if he regresses or sucks then you're not hampered with a horrible cap hit

Dan murphy tweeted that Benning doesn't seem himself trading the 5th unless he gets an offer he cannot refuse. We're most likely going to get Dubois or Tkachuk with it.

Was kind of hoping for a prospect and to drop in the top 10 and go for Logan brown. We have 2-3 years to let him mature and size up in utica.

I don't know about this.

This one just doesn't make sense.

Why trade a team leader that actually wants to play in Vancouver. His work ethic and heart is unquestionable and can mentor those yougins coming up the pipe.

Unless we go all out on UFA's, I don't think we would be bumping up against the salary cap. In which case, there may not be a need to buy out #14

The problem is that the buyout window closes before free agent frenzy begins.

i rmbr an article a while back saying the cap hit saving of buying out Burrows is only something like $1 mil and that it made more sense to buy out Chris Higgins instead

I wouldn't mind another year of Burr if that's the case tbh

Between Higgins and Burr, Higgins is barely useful in the AHL

I hate to say it, but financially, it doesn't make that much of a difference to buy out either players.
IIRC, Higgies has 1 year left on his contract and Burrs has 2 years.
If the Nucks bought out Burr's contract, they only save $1M and would have a smaller cap hit stretched out over 4 years.
So unless they plan on going nuts on July 1, it's hard to say there is value to buying out either contracts.

604_boi, the thing you are talking about was posted by Ian MacIntyre on twitter back in April.

I don't know why they didn't get rid of Gulutzan with Torts. I thought it was normal for the whole coaching corps to be fired along with the head coach.

Correct me if I am wrong, but Gulu was in charge of running special teams right? And our special teams has been... well, uninspiring. While he didn't look out of place when Torts was sidelined for the few games, he didn't seem to have made much of a difference either.

Now I look forward to who they bring in as a new assistant coach. And hopefully a better special teams system to go with it.
