    I know I'll get flamed for saying it, but Jimbo has done some his best work on the trade front the last couple of seasons.....basically acquired Goldobin, Dahlen, Leipsic, Motte and Pouliot for the equivalent of 'beads and trinkets'.

    Let's hope these players become more than 'beads and trinkets' themselves then.

    Also, is a player who scores 41 points in 61 games a bead or a trinket?

    Well, looking at what the Canucks gave up in those deals; Burrows, who's basically at the end of the road; Hansen who totally flopped in SJ and may have played his way out of the league; Holm, who could be headed back to Sweden next season; and Pedan along with fourth rounder for Pouliot. The only guy of any value was Vanek, who was on a one year deal and never figured to last with the Canucks past the deadline anyway.

    I suppose there's a chance that Goldobin, Dahlen, Leipsic, Pouliot and Motte could end up as 'trinkets and beads', but I'm betting not all of them.

    Dahlen is the only one on that list who has top 6 potential. Leipsic might be a decent bottom 6 forward, though on a contending team he was deemed expendable. I don't expect much from the others. Motte and Pouliot are not NHL players, and time is running out very fast on Goldobin.

    Oh Goldobin most certainly has top 6 potential. If he can reach that potential is the question.

    As per usual... I'll need help with AHL or other minor players leaving us.... people who we let walk or leave for Europe.

    I don't always catch those guys. Incoming signings and trades you hear all about.. the minor leavings - not so much.

    First signings of the 2018-2019 signing : Pettersson, Palmu.
    First 2 exits of the 2018-2019 : Sedins.

    Also added Jokinen since it was released he wouldn't be offered a deal.

    Some here will be as happy to see as I was :

    Capfriendly has rolled their salary charts over to the 20-18-2019 season!

    It's the small things sometimes eh... (that's what she said)

    I almost slapped my forehead when I heard a professional Canuck scout say "Well Horvat's skating at that age..."
    Fire that man.

    But Leipsic, Motte, and Pouliot are beads and trinkets.

    Call it a hunch, but despite rumors the Canucks will be 'standing pat' this offseason, I have a feeling Jimbo could be swinging for the fences. With $20m in cap space and coming off three seasons in lower lottery-land, pressure is mounting to get this team back in the playoff conversation.

    Just have a hard time believing the Canucks will basically bring the same team back that finished off last season.

    I believe they'll be more active than most believe as well.
    I don't see swinging for the fences tho.... but that depends on dominoes.

    i.e. If he manages to pull off an unexpected Edler trade... that could lead to crazier other things.. Like a Tanev trade... or a Carlson acquisition. heh..

    Actually when you look at the Canucks contract situation of Cap-Friendly, there's a number of ELC's and RFA unlikely to the qualified and will be coming off the books. Great to see those contracts replaced with some ELC's for some decent prospects for a change.

    Les Habs with 10 picks this draft? By what witchcraft did they accomplish this -- are we sure there isn't a rule against having that many? Benning must be told!...
