    Would love this kid in a wings uniform, is there a package deal that could be worked out? Curious what Vancouver would be looking for in exchange for Virtanen. Seems like the kind of player Yzerman would roll the dice on.

    Do you have an under 25 player you don't like anymore? How about them?

    Virtanen has clearly fallen out of favor in Vancouver and wouldn't take much to get him. I'd prefer a player in a similar situation in return: player with upside that is having trouble reaching it, but is still young enough to turn it around if the stars align. Basically a disappointment for disappointment swap then we both cross our fingers and hope a change of scenery helps them.

    Virtanen's skill package is intriguing. He still showed up at camp overweight and out of shape. Hard to work with a player who doesn't want to do the work. I'd take a flyer on him if he wasn't paid so much, but it's hard to justify the risk when he makes 2.55M. I'd want the cap hit to be able to be buried in the event he continues his lack of work.

    You could probably get him for Helm (retained) plus a pick, though I thought the Canucks should have been on Fabbri when he was on the block. That would be a pipe dream though.

    @Voodoo Glow Skulls made an offer of Svechnikov, McIsaac and Cholowski.

    Those pieces are of interest, so are draft picks, and so are physical, defensive minded, bottom six forwards and RHD.

    Make an offer, we're probably listening.

    Other offers have been Bennett (taken back), Zacha, Debrusk, Bjork, Larsson, and there are more, less impressive offers.

    Edit: for props.

    How has he looked to Vancouver fans? Is it the lack of usage and his line mates or are his numbers telling? Quite frankly I was going to suggest JV+ for Mantha(he’s been struggling but a definite upgrade and slightly older) until I looked at Jake’s stats and realized that seemed silly.

    VAN would likely take two farts in a jar for Virtanen.

    Would Cholowski be of any interest? Or Mcissac maybe? Cholo looked great and then kind of fell off after getting benched, in Vancouver I believe. Mcissac was once a good prospect I thought but injury issues have really made him a mystery.

    Chlorowski never understood why the wings went off track with their normal player development. He went to St Cloud St for a year then signed an elc and played in the whl at 19? Seemed to get to the nhl faster than how the wings like to have their prospects marinate in Grand Rapids.

    Currently Cholowski is marinated at Grand Rapids.

    He was clearly too soon in NHL.

    Better be two good ones. I’m talking a night after a case of Budweiser and a burrito.

    I would as well. That 3rd will be no higher than 45th OA.

    I'm partial to McIsaac, but I like the physical, big, defenders.

    He might not have any shoulders to repair.
