    EP40 is playig with AHL/waiver worthy scrubs on his wings. How he is doing what he is doing and putting up points is beyond me.

    His most partenered up line mates this year are Loui Eriksson and Nikolay Goldobin. Eriksson is a good 3rd line checker at this point and Goldobin went pointless during the 2 weeks EP was injured. SCRUBS.

    Boeser has played with EP40 but when everyone is healthy, Boeser plays with Horvat.

    So get EP40 some help !

    Please note, the Canucks are still rebuilding so they are not quite ready to mortgage top picks and top prospects for immidiate help.

    *Lets keep Nyalander out of this* As mentioned the Canucks arent ready to move young pieces or picks.

    Most likely the Canucks will find help for EP40 via feee agency. There are some fantastic players hitting the market this summer


    Panarin
    Stone
    Silfverberg
    Simmonds
    Skinner


    However , the canucks should turn over every stone and ensure there isnt a great trade option they are passing up.


    Possible Baits.

    Tanev
    Edler
    Hutton
    Juolevi ( unlikely)
    Gudbranson

    Virtanen ( unlikely)
    Gaudette ( unlikely)
    Baertschi

    Markstrom
    Nielson

    Picks
    2019 - 2nd rnd pick
    2019 - 3rd rnd pick

    2020 - 1st rnd pick ( unlikely)
    2020- 2nd rnd pick
    2020- 3rd rnd pick

    That’s absurd. Pettersson is in untouchable status and rightfully so. What the OP suggests is far more reasonable and likely.

    You’re not likely going to fetch good wingers dealing rentals, spare parts, and scrubs like Gudbranson.

    You’re ahead of schedule rebuild wise and have money to play with come the offseason. Be patient and stay the course.

    They should rescue Mark Stone from the Ottawa Senators' dumpster fire.

    Pointless to give up assets for him when he is UFA in summer. Im almost certain that he will be Canucks #1 target in Off season

    We shall see.

    Money talks and living in a city like Vancouver can be very convincing.

    Take Ritchie and silf.

    Silf can be a good line mate, and Ritchie can protect him.

    Namestnikov would likely fit pretty nicely on EP40's wing, a 2nd is all it would take

    Cost for Ritchie?

    And silfverberg is free agent. We can wait for him. Were not going to compete this season.

    Canucks are competitive. Petterson is producing. Ticket sales are brisk. Canucks had all Summer to build a unit around Petterson and did not. I totally doubt they make any upgrades at forward. They have zero goalie depth which may force an emergency move and use up assets.

    Vancouver needs to stay put. They need to see if they could land a solid UFA in the offseason, or find winger suitors for EP in 2020. I think this should be one more building year for them.

    Just want to say get your hopes up on Panarin. If he decides to leave here its going to Ny/CA/Fla... he wants big city and large russian culture. Ive lived on and off in Vancouver and I swear I thought it was Asia sometimes haha and Vancouver IMO top 5 beautiful city on the planet dont get me.wrong but I think its beaches or NY for Bread if he leaves. I dont see VAN having the russian culture he misses.


    Side note if I could move to Deep Cove right by North Van... I would live my life a happy man but it was not meant to be haha

    Keep Boeser on his wing and find another 2nd line winger for Horvat

    Long term, Elias Pettersson's eventual linemates will likely be Brock Boeser & Jonathan Dahlen. But if the Canucks are able to sign Artemi Panarin & Mark Stone next summer, that'd make for an awesome forward group.


    We shall see, but likely no thanks. He's a poor performance away, in another elimimation game, from going full Ray Finkle.

    Connor Brown can be all yours in the summer for a 2nd or 4th + prospect
