It'd be Pokka and 1st/2nd for Hamhuis AND Vrbata..... which I'd still take... knowing JB's track record that's considered a homerun ball

also hearing that Hawks may be willing to part with their grade A prospects/high picks if Canucks take on Bickell

i hope we see something like

Higgins for bickell + a pick (3rd or 4th)
chicago get a lower cap hit, and a very good penalty killer in higgins

Hamhuis for pokka + 1st
canucks get a young d prospect

Where did you get Higgins from? Lalji has said that from his sources that he 100% believes to be true is that the Hawks are in for a Hamhuis & Vrbata trade.

I see this scenario:

Hamhuis for Pokka and a 1st round pick.

Vrbata for Bickell and a 3rd round pick.

its my opinion. i just don't see how vrbata can help the hawks. he was invisible in the playoffs last year. With higgins at least he can help out their penalty kill and play good defensively.

It also gives the hawks some cap space as well higgins 2.5m vs bickell 4m.

Rumour/suggestion out of Calgary is Wideman has been linked to Van. Was from Eric Duhatschek

If Canucks have to retain and take on bickell they will be getting more than pokka 1st for vrbata and hamhuis. Another prospect like schmaltz etc

Why the fuck would the Canucks go after Wideman especially when he's done for most of the season.

Rhd who puts up 40+ pts. Signed for another year. Our d is shit especially with hamhuis more than likely being traded. Think he has less than 10games for the suspension now.
Think the theory is buy cheap sell large next year

Wideman has a cap hit of 5.25 mill for the 16/17 season and then he'll be a UFA. He has 8 more games left to serve from his suspension pending the appeal.

so he'll be 33 next season and then we can flip him at the trade deadline for assets. Hamhuis is already 33 and look at the potential return we're getting for him.

Canucks won't be competing for a cup next season.

Hamhuis: hi J..Jim? politely waives back
GMJB: DONE! I'm a GENIUS!

Considering they want to drop him to re-sign Russell...I wouldn't think too much. Also that teams right now that want d don't have much cap + his suspension and possible treatment afterwards is too risky for playoff teams. Signing Russell and then having a cap problem in the offseason handicaps them in trades too

Ladd scratched for wpg tonight. Guess they close to a trade. Gary lawless says the Hawks..

Don't forget to factor in that the cap for next season will likely stay at the same level, so lots of teams with UFAs and RFAs will be looking to clear room.
