Ladd's going to get overpaid like crazy, IMO. He took a step back last year and he's never really been a top-tier forward, but he's probably going to get paid like one on this contract (and, on the wrong side of 30, that's concerning).

Brouwer would be an easier pill to swallow as I doubt he gets the same term and AAV as Ladd plus Brouwer is more versatile even if his offensive game isn't as good.

I don't really see the appeal of Helm. I like his speed and tenacity on the forecheck, but where does he fit? We already have Henrik, Sutter, and Horvat down the middle. Do we shell out $4M with term for a 3rd line centre to play on the 4th line?

People like Helm because he's versatile like Hansen and can slot in anywhere.

Ladd is definitely going to be overpaid. He's a good player but he's just a supplementary piece that will be demanding top dollar.

Don't sign any of em

Problem with UFA's like these is that you have to give them term. I wouldn't want any of them for more than 3

If the Canucks are told to spend the money then I only want them to go after Okposo and that's it.

Okposo is a player you could use down the road in 5-6 and could still be significantly contributing at that point, the rest, who knows

Not all UFAs.

Using our 2011 cup run team as an example, we picked up Samuelsson, Torres, Malhotra, and Hamhuis who were all major contributors to that team and only Malhotra was arguably overpaid (at least when he was first signed). Only Hamhuis got term.

The GM just has to be smart about it. It's easy to make stupid decisions during free agent frenzy.

Vanek has connection with JB. Maybe we can sign him for cheap since he just got bought out.

Was pointing moreso towards this years crop of UFA's because they are all kind of B list players, but there aren't too many of them so most likely the top 5 will all be getting overpaid

If you don't give $ and term, someone else undoubtedly will.

A few years ago (well maybe 4+) only the top 5 defenseman got paid that much

Not saying he's not on his way there tho...

Lindholm's agent probably happy af right now since Seth only got 5.4m over 6 yrs

Unconfirmed rumours saying Ericsson will sign with the Red Wings.

Seems pretty likely imo.

The number of UFAs signed to overpaid contracts come Jul.1 easily out number the ones who sign for reasonable ones both in dollars and term. Esp in this day and age, term is the big issue. Lucic, Erikson, Ladd, brouwer, etc, I wouldn't mind any of the big names this year at what they are asking for 2-3 years. 6-7 years hell no.

If our canucks were a lucic away from having a legit shot at the cup, then sure throw him the money and term and hope for some puck luck come playoff time. As is, we are nowhere close. Signing a marquee UFA to big money and term now is rather meaningless. They may help you just make the playoffs, then you're stuck on luck really to get out the first round and it's really just a war on attrition there at that point. Then you have 6 more years of this to wade through

I absolutely agree that you need a well rounded deep team to win the cup. I've always believed its your 3rd and 4th lines that win your cup, the top dogs are important yes but they can only play so many minutes. If your bottom 6 is better than the other team's bottom 6, you're in happy town. You don't usually get these guys by making a big splash and overpaying ($ or term) on Jul.1
