They are almost certainly losing one of Shattenkirk or Manson in the expansion draft.
Still doesn’t mean they have room or a need
for Myers. Seattle could just as likely take a young forward from Anaheim as well. Or Jacob Larsson.
with gaudette unable to add weight this year it is an interesting gamble for the canucks whether they give him another year to do that or move on now. right now he is shaping up as a classic top 6 or bust player who cannot quite make the top 6 but cannot manage bottom 6 minutes, but maybe that was this medical thing. meanwhile, he is just getting tossed around out there and the very limited minutes a line he centres can carry is wearing on the whole team.
i think they move him if they can and try and pick up a younger sutter coming back. he might do well in a place like chicago or pittsburgh that is always looking for a cheap top 6 guy. i will bet burke likes him.
Why would Burke like him?
he likes characters. gaudette has passion and personality to spare.
with the amount of try he has, gaudette is a classic "a" wearer and glue guy if he ever makes it.
Why because he kicked his wife in the face? He seems pretty dull to me. And soft which Burke hates
Gaud kicked his wife in the face? What?
It was an accident. At their wedding, he was doing a lap dance for her or something and tried to sweep his leg over her head, and ka-pow, got her right in the kisser.
to me he's not soft he's skinny. he was getting crushed and tossed around last night trying to make stuff happen.
as for dull, i have no idea what you are talking about.
Nothing about Adam Gaudette screams letter wearer. Maybe in the AHL.
They’ve handled his development so poorly it’s not even funny.
Gaudette has to provide offence to be effective and he hasn't been producing at all, but at least he's noticeable in the offensive zone and should eventually break out of this slump. He'll be a cheap re-sign, too.
Agrees with keeping Gaudette
We had the current Nashville GM’s dad as our GM years ago, didn’t we? If Poile gets fired from his job there, would he be a good hire here? Maybe bring him in as the President and he hires a GM?
would be producing if he wasn't playing with 2 flat tires,in Roussel and Sutter..
The problem with that line and in general the bottom 6 is the complete lack of playmakers or guys who can hold onto the puck to make a play. Like has Roussel had the puck on his stick in the offensive zone? I don't think so. The Kesler comparison is pretty bad, but works in one way as Guadette's tunnel vision matches how Canucks fans thought of Keslers playmaking ability. Kesler was never that bad.
Granted Gaudete should definitely have 2-3 more goals and I think amazingly all of Sutter's goals have been unassisted
At this point the smart move would be to keep burying Gaudette like they have, sign him to a cheap deal with term this off-season, then ride him as a scoring winger for the next 2-3 years.
I mean it's what they should have done last off-season.. but better late than never.
Friedman reporting that the coyotes would have interest in Pearson if he becomes available.
They got any upper end d prospects?
Pearson for chychrun ez.
pearson for 2nd?+prospect?
Brandon Montour is available from Sabres, wonder what the ask is. He's someone we should be all over
Cap doesn’t quite balance out 1 for 1 but something like this maybe
Adam Pelech is becoming an RFA I believe.l this offseason. If the Isles can’t afford to keep him is he a potential target to partner with Hughes?
