As bad as Sbisa is in doing stupid ass passes like edler does sometimes, he still hits people. Edler is the gentle giant who doesn't hit anymore.

No but Edler and Tanev are a very effective shutdown duo. I can't remember exactly, but to start last year, I seem to recall that they were statistically the most effective in the league in terms of even-strength goals allowed per 60 for the first month or so. Unfortunately, we don't get much offense from them.

Lol I remember getting some flak earlier this year around the deadline for suggesting they shud trade Sbisa.
Apparently ppl loved his physicality.

Always thought the deal was garbage and the guy was a bottom 6 pairing at his best.

I thought we had a pretty solid consensus that the sbiza signing was a mistake

probably me, I'm a Sbisa fan by RS standards... honestly the guy's improved so much last year, if he can make the same amount of improvement for next year the 3 year deal looks 'real good'



maybe I haven't fully stamped out the inner Canuck fan in me but I'm quite excited to see this team next year:

- Eriksson is a huge upgrade over a checked-out Vrbadass
- blueline beefed up with Gudbranson, getting out of our zone more may mean more goals
- young guys keep improving, and we have a legit crop now (BoHo, JV, Baertschi, Troy Stecher, Boeser, Juolevi)

I think context is also important. Our team were soft as hell even by their own standards. Even Dorset couldnt carry the load, and the back end had zero mean streak. Moving sbisa last season would have teams just abuse us worst than they did. With the overhaul on d recently, sbisa is def worth moving, even if he continues to improve that just means we get more back

We have around 4.1 million left in cap space. If we can get him for no more than 3.5 million, that'd be pretty good.

Keep in mind he's a defensive liability.

I don't think he'll really be given much consideration, to be honest, which isn't to say he doesn't deserve it, but it doesn't seem like management is very high on him (similar to how they didn't seem very high on Shinkaruk despite Shinkaruk thriving in Utica).

When I look at our defense right now, it looks like:
Edler-Tanev
Hutton-Gudbranson
Sbisa-???

Pedan and Biega are waiver-eligible, Tryamkin has an out clause (if he's sent down to the AHL, he can instead choose to go back to Russia).

Is he better than those 3? If he is, is it enough of a difference that it's worth exposing 1 of them on waivers (or losing Tryamkin to Russia)?

I'm leaning towards no.

A lot can change in the next 3 months, so there's that as well.

When the guddy trade happened Benning said they were looking for someone to play with Hutton so he didn't have to worry so much and had a stay at home kinda dman. I think they see Hutton's potential to be a good puck moving, break out of your own end kinda dman.

Vancouver Canucks name NHL ironman Doug Jarvis as assistant coach - Sportsnet.ca

Quote:
VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Canucks have named Doug Jarvis, holder of the NHL’s ironman record, as an assistant coach.

The Brantford, Ont., native has 26 years of coaching experience following a 13-season NHL playing career.

He is a six-time Stanley Cup champion, winning four times as a player with Montreal and twice as an assistant coach with Dallas (1999) and Boston (2011).

Jarvis still holds the NHL ironman record with 964 consecutive games played, never missing a game his entire career. He recorded 403 career points (139 goals, 264 assists) with Montreal, Washington and Hartford.




Jarvis won the Selke Trophy as top defensive forward in 1984 and the Masterton Trophy for perseverance and dedication in 1987.

Jarvis joins head coach Willie Desjardins' staff alongside assistants Doug Lidster and Perry Pearn.

Can we even afford to compete with Edmonton and Toronto?
We barely have assets as it is.

I don't even know if Colorado is going to ask for roster players or prospects.

Larson deal is going to make Barrie super expensive now
