It’s time again for a mid-week favourite: What Would You Do, where we put you in charge of the Vancouver Canucks and ask you to figure out how to solve a problem facing the team in the comments section. This week though, we’re giving you total control of the hypothetical Canucks and asking you to be Jim Benning on NHL trade deadline day.
So what would you do on Monday? Read past the jump to join the discussion!
We have so far taken stock of the Canucks assets and needs, looked at reasons why this team may be a deadline buyer, and examined why Jim Benning should simply stand pat on Monday. We favour a fairly uneventful day for the Canucks on March 2nd, but you already know that. However, we want to know what you would do if you were given total control of the Vancouver Canucks over the next few days and how you would shape the short and long term future of this franchise.
Would you be a buyer or a seller on Monday? Which teams would you buy from, and how much would you pay? Who would you sell to and what prices would you demand? If you want to make “hockey deals,” tell us which players you’re trading, and who you’re trading them for.
We invite you to go full HFBoards in the comments section. Got a fair trade you think the Canucks should make? Propose it. Have a wishlist of players you’d like the Canucks to go after? Let us know. Looking to discuss the hottest new rumour? We’re all ears.
This What Would You Do is entirely open ended, so we’re looking forward to your great/funny/insightful/thought-provoking responses. We’ll include our favourites in an article on Sunday as part of our final lead-up to deadline day, so be sure to put your best and/or most delusional foot forward. Let us know how you would navigate this year’s NHL trade deadline!
