Latest Canuck rumors

The Globe and Mail is reporting on the latest rumors with the Canucks. It is reported that the Sedins and management are still far away on new deals, that eh Canucks are talking contract with Burrows and there are rumors that the Canucks may look to target several key free agents this offseason.

In the case of the Sedins it is reported that the Canucks are still about 1 million apart with each of the Sedins on a base contract rate but also have a disagreement on the length of the contract. Complicating the situation is that the Sedins come as a package so it is reported that the Canucks and Sedins are really 16 million dollars apart.

Another player, Burrows really wants to remain a Canuck and it is reported that the Canucks are looking to get a deal worked out soon. Burrows has been nothing short of a bargain for 550,000 per year.

Of interest is that it is noted that the Canucks may look to target several big names come the summer if they can not resign the Sedins. The two targets include Michael Cammalleri who used to be represented by Gillis and Marian Hossa, who is very close to Pavol Dmitra.

    Do the Sedins have a NTC?

    Early money on Daniel, Henrik & Ohlund wearing Leafs uniforms next season, and Burrows wearing Hab silks. It'll be interesting to see what the 'Nucks do over the next 6 months. I have a funny feeling we'll be talking about Luongo here next year and where Vancouver's gonna trade him. In the meantime, are they gonna make any moves this year?

    I don't like Ohlund as a player. No Sedins unless they accept a good contract. If they're expecting 6-7 per year each, that's a bit much.

    Why don't you like Ohlund?

    I just don't see the big hub bub about him that everyone's always ranting about. He's a career – player and he's had some pretty terrible seasons overall.

  8. greatlife15 says:

    Yes I'm pretty sure they do.

  9. Bure96 says:

    He's had some pretty terrible seasons? When?

    "The twins are seeking five-year deals that average $6.5-million (all currency U.S.) a year. The Canucks have countered with $5.5-million over three or four years." – http://www.prosportsdaily.com

    I won't pay them more than 5.5 they're not that good. It would be to hard to trade 2 players at 13 mil. If the want to stay together they would have to take a pay cut for sure.
     I'd pay them 5 mil 4 year contract or trade them for better players before the deadline or just suck it up and keep them this year and trade for a 1st line player for prospects and draft picks (not Hodgson) so they can take a run through these playoffs and then lose the twins to free agency.

    They'd also better sign Burrows, he's a good young player with lots of heart (someting the twins don't have). I'd like the Canucks to sign Ohlund too. He's the last remaining player from the '94 run and he's a big body we need on "D".

    No they do not have a NTC. That's why they want it in the new contract. Nonis was smart enough not to do that.

  15. Kyleton says:

    I don't think so as I believe they are coming out of an RFA contract, and I don't think NTC can be given to restricted players… I could be very wrong on that however.

    blake-sedin-sedin…not a bad number one line next year

    '98 and '00 off the top of my head.
