Yeah, I think Dallas really showed last year that they were becoming a threat.

An injured Archibald is more useful than a healthy Booth

DAAAAAAMN SON...you just got knocked end over end like a cartoon character.

Clean hit too. Looks like he gets him square in the shoulder. Just looks crazy because of the vicious speed. One of the best I've ever seen. Archibald just STOPS too...like he transferred all that momentum straight into that guy's spine.

Erat may actually work okay with Kesler considering he's a decent setup guy and he plays a solid 2-way game.

Now, if you want to talk bad trades, look at Forsberg, who they got for Varlamov, for Erat

Would be the equivalent of us trading Schneider for Horvat then trading Horvat for Hemsky.

A few guys at my work were discussing about this on Monday.
Their contracts are similar... and you'd figure Erat can't possibly be any worse than Booth.

At least if Erat gets traded, he'll probably be motivated to play just to make a statement to the Capitals.

They were throwing this around on team 1040 yesterday afternoon for shits and giggles.

Until Bobby or Lebrun chime in with some tweets, it's all heresay generated by the Vancouver market. Botch can be a good reporter, but I don't think of him as being an NHL insider.

^Lebrun actually did report Nucks interested in Erat a few days ago on TSN, if you refering to for Booth though lol that all wishful thinking in Canuckland, Erat is doing terrible but I find with his track record he can't land something better than Booth. Erat at least has been relatively healthy. The thing with Erat now is like the chicken or egg argument, does he blow now and that why he on the 4th line on his off wing? or is he sucking because hes forced to his off wing and playing 8 minutes a game with shitty linemates.

Yeah, he and Oates don't really get along. Erat likes to play RW despite being a left-handed player and Oates wants lefties on the left wing and righties on the right wing at even-strength.

If Gillis is able to get Erat and unload Booth's salary, George McPhee would have to be drunk to do that trade. -nice trade scenario. -doubt that it will happen.

-Washington picks up the salary of a hunter, not a sniper.

thing is Erat even if we assume he isn't on the steep decline his stats say and hes just been a poor fit with Caps, he doesn't seem to be what is missing for the nucks either. He is a borderline 20 goal scorer through out his career and I doubt at 32 this trends upward. Canucks are already filled with these guys imo so I don't see the whole point of this unless by some miracle Caps actually take Booth and like a low pick..

Bob McKenzie reports that Evander Kane isn't getting along with the Jets coach. Evander hasn't asked for a trade, yet.

Kukla's Korner Hockey - Kukla's Korner

-would be nice to have this local player on our team. -not gonna happen with his $5.25 million salary.

Yep totally possible (though not going to happen).

Here's a playtime scenario:

Buy out Booth. Send a salary the Jets way (likely less than 5.25, and likely a D man which is what the Jets need imo) in a Kane trade. Bring up Corrado.

What about the "optics" of this kind of player like Kane coming into a team where he makes more money than Kesler? 5.25 million salary vs. Kesler's 5.0 million.

-not sure about other NHL teams but the Canucks have their pecking order of salaries pretty well defined. Sedins 7.0 million, Luongo 6 million, then Kesler at 5.0 million.

-would it be a concern in the locker room that Kesler gets butt hurt over Kane getting paid more than him if Evander became a Canuck?

Don't get me wrong. -would like this guy on our team. Would his presence upset the veterans in the locker room?
