A Potential Canucks Roster For 2016/17

Many of the moves that facilitate this roster come from an earlier post of mine, the Darkest/Brightest Timelines one. I’ve plucked a couple of the moves from the Brightest Timeline, and adjusted them a bit for realism. We already know this offseason won’t be perfect. Also, for the purpose of this, let’s be a bit optimistic and assume the Canucks draft Pierre-Luc Dubois. If we draft Matthew Tkachuk, he can easily slot in where Dubois does. If they draft a d-man, he likely won’t hit the roster.



1) Draft Pierre-Luc Dubois at #5

2) Re-sign Linden Vey, Emerson Etem, Sven Baertschi, Andrey Pedan, Alex Grenier, Mike Zalewski

3) Re-sign Dan Hamhuis to hometown discount

4) Let all other UFAs go, except maybe Alex Friesen and Taylor Fedun

5) Buyout/trade with retention Chris Higgins

6) Trade Jannik Hansen for 1st Round Pick

7) Trade Alex Edler for 1st Round Pick + D Prospect+more

8) Trade Luca Sbisa for whatever

9) Sign Philip Larsen


The Roster:



Daniel Sedin-Henrik Sedin-Jake Virtanen

Sven Baertschi-Bo Horvat-Anton Rodin

Brendan Gaunce-Pierre Luc Dubois (9 Games)-Brandon Sutter

Emerson Etem-Markus Granlund-Derek Dorsett

Alex Burrows/Linden Vey

Minors: Grenier, McCann, Zalewski

After 9 games for Dubois, Grenier or McCann are recalled.



Dan Hamhuis-Chris Tanev

Ben Hutton-Nikita Tryamkin

Philip Larsen-Andrey Pedan

Biega/Prospect Acquired for Edler
