Did anyone hear about Doug MacLean saying on Team1040 that he heard about an imminent Canucks trade ?

Burrows with a hand sprain in the final game against TO after the scuffle with Kessel. I guess that's what happens when you pull hair....should be healed up when the break ends (as per Elliott Pap)

Yes. But it's also Doug Maclean.

MG has made moves every trade deadline. I don't see why this year would be any different, especially since we're currently in a position to select in the top 10

Pasta forgot to mention that Douggie was saying that the particular moves he was hearing were of the "blindside" variety. Not the typical MG "picks for rental" trade at the deadline.

The mule is way past his prime and injury prone.

Mantha is a gifted offensive player, with size. If Detroit is willing to give up Mantha the trade looks good. Otherwise, no deal if only Franzen is available.

I think it goes without saying, that any deal involving just Edler and the Mule as principals is not a deal MG would make.

Why the hell would we do that trade?

Franzen is near retirement due to injuries.

So we're giving up a 40+ point all-star dman in his prime locked up long term and a 3rd line winger who is in his prime locked up long term for a shitty long-term contract, a promising junior player, and a 1st or a 2nd?

Even if it gives you bunches in return? If you really think about it, Kes is MG's biggest chip that can bring back the most return. Also, he has been injury prone in the past few seasons.

That said, if we're to believe MG it would mean that RK17 would've had to come to MG asking for a trade, and not the other way around.

only threw the Mule in because hes been rumored to be the piece MUST go (as a cap dump) if we were to trade Edler to them

but yes, I do agree with the above comments about how the ship has sailed with him, anybody who thinks he would be the center piece of such deal = full potato

we saw what Mantha was capable of in the world JR and he's absolutely ripping it up Q, huge upside, underrated sniper (50G)

Pacioretty/Neal/Vanek type

lol ppl ITT are like a bunch of wolves
once one person doesn't a suggestion, everyone else jumps in

but seriously next time I'll provide explanation of why in the initial post so people's jimmies don't get rustled quickly

at least with Franzen you get someone who shows up in the playoffs, his salary goes down each year after next year, cap hit is better than Booth's @4M, great goal scorer when healthy, and no cap penalty if he retires early, no NTC

but yes, injury-prone and streaky at times, sometimes lazy, aging
so its not as TERRIBLE as some suggest, but worth the risk cause Mantha is gonna be a beast, quote me on it

DET also has Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Jurco up for grabs if the deal is right

Before the 2011 run, he picked up Higgins and Lapierre which were supposed to be rentals for the 4th line as they were both UFA/RFA (I believe). They both ended up re-signing the next year.

The next year, he traded for Kassian for CoHo (the one exception where picks weren't given for the targeted player, and target wasn't a rental).

That same year, he got Pahlsson at the deadline for a prospect.

Last year would've been the Roy trade you mentioned.


There are your MG deadline deals.


For a potential Detroit deal- wouldn't it be something if Kesler wanted to go back home and become the number 1/2 center there, packaged with Edler for a bunch of Detroit's younger players? That'd qualify as quite the splash that Doug MacLean was alluding to in his cryptic comment.

Read: I'm not suggesting it's going to happen, or that it's an actual trade idea. I have no reason to believe that MG will move NTCs especially as he said he would never ask a player to move. I'm just speculating that there's a fit there with Detroit's centers on the backside of their career arcs and the Canucks' need for youthful skill. No need to roast me lol

this thread would be better if people weren't afraid of posting their opinions... probably due to the condescending attitudes and hatred, that has built up over the years, all the trolling, and bullying, shitting on ppl for what they think (perhaps why a lot of regulars dont even bother anymore coupled with disappointment of what has transpired the past 3 seasons)

^to answer the question
trading Edler and Kesler to the same team wouldn't be smart because you wanna maximize your value, which you can with multiple teams, I guess it also depends what kinda mentality the FO has too, straight up rebuild or like an on-the-go etc.
NTC/NMC is just a whole clusterfuck Gillis has to deal with, total head scratcher
