Stamkos playing for the Leafs would be great. If you have the ability to aquire talent like that, without having to trade for it, you don't pass that up no matter what stage your team is at. He could take players like Nylander and Marner under his wing so they aren't being thrown to the wolves like the kids in Edmonton have. He might also help draw other players around the league to play in Toronto. I'm not getting my hopes up though and the media/fan obsession is annoying.

Lets play some arm chair GM! We all know the Canucks are sucking balls right now and most likely won't make the playoffs this year on their play alone so....

This summer when Canucks look to get some free agent talent who do you think their top guys they would be looking at and which ones you think they will sign here?

For example some names would be stamkos, stahl, kopitar, Lucic ect....go!

Can you even count Therrien as a former coach when he's never even played an official game in a Habs uniform?

Stamkos

would be awesome, but he might demand patrick kane monies at max term

Staal.

could work..can't say he's past his prime, he doesn't have players to really play with

Kopitar...

will demand stupid money

Lucic

I guess? maybe he takes a discount to come home, but may ask for max term and thats not a good thing

With guys like Weber, maybe bartkowski, hopefully Higgins, vrbata and hamhuis coming off the books Canucks could legitimately get a guy like stamkos but I'm thinking Canucks will go after a guy like Lucic since the familiarity with JB...kopitar would be nice too! If I'm JB this summer I'm looking for a legitimate centre, winger that could score and a decent dman to move the puck and fill the rest from with in either from the farm or other free agents but most likely from with in

When you have Dave Randorf as one of your top announcers, you have a problem. He's horrible, they should have hired Shorthouse instead.

as good as picking up Stamkos sounds for the Canucks, the best thing they can do in the off season is to pick up a top 2 dman

i'm hoping JB signs some defensive depth during the College Free Agency season, i haven't been keeping tabs on who's good but it's his best shot at solidifying the empty D cupboards

If you look at the various TB Lightning forums, the overwhelming majority of TB fans want Yzerman to trade Stamkos as they all don't think he is worth taking up $10mil of the cap. Will be interesting to see what happens with him.

Take your pick of Boho/Virt/McCann + 1st + a decent roster player
at least

it's gonna be steep and as much as i'd want him on the team, i don't think we can afford to trade for him

iirc he signed that bridge contract that doesn't expire til 2017 at $4M aav, it doesn't have an NTC/NMC so he can't really force CBJ to deal him to a specific team

If things keep up our first rounder will be quite valuable. so in my opinion that is out of trade talks. I think Horvat or McCann can be moved. Between Cassels McCann and Horvat our potential future middle 2 centers appear to be filled. That's assuming they can blossom into their expectations. now the question is who's name do you throw around as trade bait, or do you wait to see if Cassels cracks the line up in two years then deal with the issue when it arrives.

yeah...the Oilers just got a taste of what it's like to win games (note: plural)
they weren't trading anyone when they sucked, they're not gonna trade anyone now.

i'll eat my shoe (at least try to bite it) if they make a trade of that magnitude with Van

that's pretty classless...there's trash talk but even from Burr that's pretty low (assuming he knew the history)

Trash talk is trash talk. What he (allegedly) said goes way beyond that. If it's true, it's completely indefensible.
