<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Shibbal18</b></div><div>I 1000% disagree with everything you said. When it comes to the Eriksson cap dump, why do you think theyd have to take it on. Plus id like Eriksson around to fill a leadership role. 2 years left, if they need to they can bury or buy him out. Not an issue. Staal has not proven he cant be a 2C any more, especially when he is flanked by 2 talented wingers. Krieder pick is top 10 protected so if they dont perform they dont lose out. If they do perform, then it was worth it to get back on track</div></div>

Eriksson isn’t looked at fondly by many Canucks fans because he’s not exactly been understanding about his predicament. He’d just be another player past their expiration date clawing to get 10pts a year. Thus a cap dump. Virtanen is an ok player but nothing to really get excited about, plus an RFA at the end of the year. A 3rd round pick is what we traded for Vesey which would mean we traded Risto for a mid tier prospect and a cap dump.

Since departing Carolina Staal has played wing primarily and looked great last year but looks his age a bit more this year. He’s no longer a 2C for anything but the occasional injury fill in. I’d be interested in him as a winger still but I’d want a 4th and 7th in return for the 2nd at least.

It’s the fact Kreider is a rental that scares me off this deal. I don’t care if the pick is lottery protected, either way a 1st is leaving our coffers to get a guy for 60 games barring injury and that is bad asset management
