What nucks need to do to stay on top of Northwest
Trades Nonis should make to stay on top of Northwest.
1st) the nucks should trade Cooke to the to the leafs for Tucker.The nucks would also part ways with a prospect or a few mid round picks.This trade would help out both teams,both players earn around 1.5mil,the leafs wouldnt have to sign tucker for a shit load next year and they could focuse on signing Sundin + they could sign cooke for a multi year deal.Now tucker would be great for the nucks he plays the same game as cooke but hes a lot better at putting pucks in the net,note if we got tucker the nucks would most likely lose him to the free agency.
2nd) thing the nucks should do is sign jason allison sure hes old but he can probably be a 20 goal scorer,hed be put on the 3rd line and the nucks would get him for under 2mil.
3rd) I like Naslund but hes in a major slump and i think he needs a change,and the best place for the nucks to trade him to is the coyotes,just like naslund, doan nagy and comrie need some changes so a great trade nonis could make is getting nagy and doan for naslund picks and prospects could be involved in the trade to, or the trade could go like morrison naslund for doan nagy and perreault.This is another change that would help both clubs morrison and naslund can get lots of ice time again and be on the number 1 line.Nagy would be a great goal scorer for the nucks and doan fits the canucks style of play perfectly grit defense and he can pop in goals.
4th) if the nucks are in need of a veteran playoff goalie Ed Belfour hes only making around 0.750 ,Sabourin makes 0.450 a year so i say sabourin+ a 2nd or 3rd round pick would get the eagle on our team.This again helps both clubs Belfour is doing horrible this frees up a small bit of space for the panthers which they could use to make a trade at the deadline.For the nucks it helps them with getting a solid backup mainly for the playoffs he would be good if luongo freezs in the playoffs or gets injury.
5th) this is a deal iam no so sure should happen but if it does it would be great a trade would go something like this bulis + chouinard and a late draft pick for Anson Carter and a 4th round pick cater has around the same salary as the 2 of them combined, this trade would probably be great for Vancouver while a decent move for Columbus bulis’s numbers could go up if he were to play with Fed and Nash and chouinard would be decent on the 2nd PP unit and chouinard is a great faceoff man.While the nucks get carter to play with the twins again.
just another trade i would of made if i didnt already deal morrison the trade would be somthing like morrison+2nd round pick to the leafs for Peca and one of the leafs good prospects like (steen,wellwood).the only reason i didnt do this is because peca is suppose to be out the rest of the season.The leafs would do good with getting morrison he would be a great 2nd line centre for the leafs.The nucks would do great with this trade because peca owns the draw and is great on the pk and he fits the nuck system well.
the nuck lineup would go somthing like this
Krajicek/Fitzpatrick(tremblay as a spare/7th D-man)
also a good free agent signing would be Todd Bertuzzi because the nucks would be able to get him,because Bert will have a big cuy in his salary i say it will be about 1.7mil
