    I would say Hanifin would be the smart, but slightly boring choice. Last three 6, 5 and 5th pick Hanifin is better than 2 of those. Generally speaking I would say you are pretty happy if you pick a guy like him 7th, but you are also losing out on hitting the jackpot with someone like Pettersson.

    If we had a good team missing one D that could contribute a bit offensively I would make that deal in a heartbeat. However, with the situation we are in - desperately looking for high high end talent Hanifin probably isn't the guy.

    THIS.....BOOM!!!

    Would you be trying to trade Boesser for a pick? Peterson? Horvat?

    NO!

    But YOU WOULD deal Virtannen or Joulevi for one

    Jim is so bloody stupid....I can't stand it anymore

    This guy is a "Meh" defenseman,

    He IS NOT A DIFFERENCE MAKER

    You will see no appreciable difference in the team because he is one it

    Incidentally THAT is why Carolina are trying to trade him

    It’s funny how edm attempted this with trading their first (which I believe was the 15th oa pick) a couple of years ago for Reinhart and got screwed lol. Could’ve had Barzal instead. I agree Hanafin is a good young dman, but this team is so far out of contention right now, it’s prob better to just roll the dice with our pick.

    Ya I think with Edmonton in 2015, the idea of trading the 16th pick wasn't necessarily a bad one per se, after all they were already drafting at #1. But identifying Griffin Reinhart as the player to spend that pick (and more) on was just brutal. At that point Chiarelli should have been targeting an established second pair D rather than a stagnated prospect.

    I don't think Reinhart in 2015 compares to Hanifin today, like at all. At the same age, Reinhart had played all of 8 NHL games.

    True, but nobody is comparing them.

    I think the concept/philosophy of trading for Griffin vs trading for Hanifin was compared.

    If he was a right shot d-man I would consider it, assuming certain players were still left.

    Agreed. Edm’s assessment of Reinhart was abysmal. It definitely wasn’t a very good display of scouting and asset management for sure. They could’ve used that pick as leverage in a package deal for a young, established NHL defender with upside considering they had a few more pieces up front that they could’ve used as trade bait at the time. Ex; RNH + 16th OA..

    I look forward to Benning overreacting to Juolevi's surgery and blowing his load to acquire another young D man.

    If you could draft Noah Dobson with that pick, and then put him in a time machine and send him back three years so that he fits the age makeup of the new core, would you do that? If so, is Hanafin that different? Obviously he is below Dobson's ceiling (especially defensively), but it seems like he's following a realistic B+ progression path, which might be a wise (if unexciting) move.

    Not by me. I mentioned that trading for Hanifin is a move 2016-17 Winnipeg should have done or Edmonton today. Given where those teams were/are in their rebuild a move like this would make sense. The other poster then commented on how bad the Reinhart trade turned out. I don’t think it was a direct comparison, more of a tangent.

    Others have made the point but has anyone dug any deeper to answer the question, why would Carolina be actively trying to trade a 21 year old mobile, 6'3", 206 lbs, D-man selected 5th overall in 2015? Something just doesn't seem right.

    Nope. Gotta swing for the fences where the Canucks are at.

    That said, if my home run picks are all gone (unlikely) I would consider a straight across trade.

    Three fold:

    1. Stacked at defense and need forward help.
    2. Apparently lacking in "hockey IQ".
    3. Looking towards Seattle expansion draft.

    Better to get value now while it's still high than back yourself in a corner next year. Given what just happened with Vegas, my guess is alot of teams are more wary of this.

    This, This and oh SOME OF THIS FOR DESERT....

    ....ACTUALLY, SIR CAN I HAVE A DOGGY BAG?

    ...I THINK I WANT SOME OF THIS FOR BREAKFAST TOO.......

    ...AND MAYBE SAVE SOME FOR A SANDWICH FOR LUNCH

    Jim Benning's patented "PROSPECT HACK TM" Has been an unmitigated failure for half a decade, if they do this trade and ANYONE SPENDS A DIME ON THE CANUCKS NEXT SEASON.....then understand this, actually, it doesn't matter if they do or don't the damage has already been done numerous times....

    This is just entertainment, but there was a time when it was ENJOYABLE entertainment, due to this unfortunate's bumbling ineptitude (Linen and Aquillini have no excuse, Linden for his part IS NOT stupid, I can only assume they are TRYING to devalue the team for reasons beyond the scope of what is discussed on this forum) due to being in the hands of a man who speaks and behaves as if he is below the average intelligence quotient for his age group, and who I suspect DOES suffer from slight mental ******ation (I'm not insulting him, I feel for the guy he should never have been put in this possition as he 100% legitimatly displays signs of slight mental ******ationl) The onus is no longer on HIM, he can't do the job YOU know that,

    YOU have to stop spending money on the Canucks until this madness stops, from now on the fault is with whoever spends a dollar on this team, YOU are to blame.

    You want another "top 4 D" with "Low Hockey I.Q"

    He had 30 pts with the Canes, he will have less with us and make a ton of bad decisions, proving that he was never a "Top 4" guy to begin with and that's why Carolina traded him,

    So, at the end of the year when you are looking at 25pts and a ton of boneheaded plays (Oh and this isn't a "Push Back" player either so don't expect a rise in toughness) are you going to think this guy did anything other than provide us with two Derrick Pouliot's?

    This is a CLEAR example of a new management group trying to prove themselves to the owner by "Winning" a trade,

    It is well known that Jim Benning can be taken advantage of, they have targeted him, not any specific asset we have.

    Losing 7th should be the end of the road if there are any hold outs left, stop spending money on this team NOW.
