The Canucks have been seeking a lofty price of a second-round pick for Schenn or a third-round pick+ another asset for Schenn. They’ve also discussed packaged deals for Schenn and Brock Boeser with a few clubs as the two share the same agent.
Schenn, 33, has 3 goals and 18 assists on the season and carries an $850,000 cap hit.
Team needs goalie
This would be a stupid move
Maybe a Retool for next season. Trade off Blueger, McGinn, Zucker who’s on expiring contract, see if they can offload the Kapanen contract an Hopefully Hextall doesn’t hand a contract to Jarry at 6 million a season maybe move him for a second round pick. This team was so embarrassing to watch last night it was laughable. Changes need to be made even if it’s for the future.
Can’t say I disagree but we are one point out of the playoffs with 3 or 4 games in hand. Just a couple small smart moves (by lazy ass Hextall /Burke) like a third line center and one dman…a Kulikov or Gavrikov would help…look if they get in they will have Boston or Carolina who we have played tough all one goal games…they will have nothing to lose a Max Domi only 27 has 16 goals, gritty, great one timer, god skater. Maybe go for a gavrikov now that Boston got Orlov……Gavrikov is only 26 these two make us younger… Read more »
This team should not make the playoff this year
Why make the playoff when they will be out in 4 games
Oh just for ego
Just to let know bandwagon fans hey we are in playoffs 17 years in a row.
Who the fuckkk are we kidding
This team has no 3rd line
The defense is too soft
And they have disastrous goalies in net one worst then the other
Great take Sam.
I think Luke Schenn would have made a BIG DIFFERENCE tonight lmao
Luke Schenn is certainly better than the crap defenseman that showed up in black n gold tonight…
Hell Quinn you could have laced them up last night and been better than 4 of the 6 defenseman.
Fucking Jarry goes down way too early as McDavid’s shot from a harsh angle floats right over him..im sure that would be luke schenns fault too… oh and the penalty shot was also Luke Schenn fault your right Quinn my bad
Everyone is making moves but us. We need toughness. Sullivan wants a team of fast pussies.
You are right pozone and Hextall wont do anything..
12 Shots through 2 periods on home Ice!!!! Has the 3rd line scored a Goal in the last 25 games
Mstartari turned off his tv already
Hi, Sam. How are you?
The Pens are losing 4-1 and getting skated around like pylons, but they are doubling them up on hits. What does that mean? We need a slow 3rd pairing defenseman that hits!
Luke Schenn is exactly what this pussified team is in need of toughness and defensive responsibility.. Move out Jeff Petry for a high pick and clear some salary or get parts we need back for him. Imagine a second pair of Schenn and maybe Kukikov from Anaheim. No one will be gooning Crosby and Malkin (which is what the Rangers did) anymore Schenn goes after them. He blocks shots, is a good penalty killer, huge character guy and will stick up for his teammates. $850,000 and he is better defensively than any defenseman wee have…. Could have a nice shut… Read more »
Schenn is not a good pickup, now if it’s for Boeser I would bite, seen some other reports that they are interested in Jeff petry which would be a win for us. I would give them Petry an mid round pick for Boeser the Cap hit is relatively the same. An Petry hasn’t had a Terrible season I believe he’s got 19 points in 39 games.. we will see I would like to see Hextall make some moves regardless.
Totally disagree read above have you seen the Penguins play defense…LOL
Do you not understand hockey? Why do you think Schenn has played for so many different teams through his career? Look at Schenns War percentile timeline from 2018 to 2023, it’s terrible an Ruhwedel is Better in all Categories ALLLLLLLL LMAO. If u want a Goon for defense add it to the 4th line or rotational piece, Schenns overall defense an offense are garbage, only thing he does is stick up for guys an that’s on a good night. He does nothing else well.
The same reason Wayne Gretzky played for so many teams…he is good…. Have you not watched the Penguins defenseman ? Letang off year tough circumstances wildy mediocre,Petry wildy inconsistent/ injuries,Dumoulin has lost a step and a half slow as hell,Joseph gets walked around like an orange traffic cone, can’t play in front of his own net, is weak in the corners…he can pass pretty well,- Rutta same as Petry injuries wildly inconsistent,- we could out you out there bro we would be better. Marcus Peterson has been the only consistent one. He is a UFA on a cheap contract and… Read more »
So your saying a Luke Schenn is a Upgrade over all our defensemen when Schenns probably the worst one if he’s added to the defensive unit? A Guy in Schenn who makes the minimum salary for a reason? A guy that has played for 8 teams, just because he’s a physical force means he’s an upgrade he’s a downgrade in almost every single area of our defense an basically adding another Dumo, now I would replace Dumo for sure but they have internal options for that also. An the inconsistency is the whole team in general, the goalies can not… Read more »
Go for it we need any kind of toughness we can get. Lets end the Penguin ice capades.
I puked in my mouth
What could this possibly accomplish?
Everything Tbj… have you seen the Penguins play defense? Teams will not goon Crosby / Malkin / Guentxel he will answer the bell and is a huge character guy.. Guys like Trouba and Wilson wion’t be running wild on the Penguins…Schenn is tough..
We have 0 toughness 850,000 ufa what’s not to like. He is the best defenseman we have period. tough in front of the net, character guy, strong in the corners..
And if they go gt Kulikov like they are talking about you have a new second pair..
Petry and dumoulin moved..
Getting Schenn will accomplish “everything”? The guy is an aging plug that won’t move the needle. The team needs more scoring, better goaltending and, a complete retool of their bottom 6. And you’re out of your mind off you think he’ll deter anyone. If Ryan Reaves didn’t (he didn’t), Schenn definitely won’t. And if he’s your best defenseman, hopefully you’re an AHL team. There’s a reason he makes vet minimum.
Hockey11 totally agree
Aging he is light years better than DuMoulin and he is only 33..Dumoulin is 31 and has the foot speed of the statue of liberty..
we need grit, toughness, character, and accountability and we have pretty much 0 of that on defense and on the whole team really..
That’s why many teams want him… Th guy above said well why has he played on so many teams…he is good just like Gretzky played on so many teams…not he isn’t gretzky but he is a valuable part to a team who needs some stability on defense
Gretzky played on the Oilers an Kings lol 90 percent of his career at the end it was Rangers an Blues haha. That’s not even Comparable to Schenn
That is 4 teams bro,,,
Look Schenn fills a valuable need…toughness, grit, and is a stand up character guy in the room. We aren’t asking him to be Paul Coffey we are asking him to block shots, drop the gloves if goons target Crosby/Malkin (he will) that’s all.
Hextall doesn’t have the stones or the smarts to go after McCabe, Gavrikov, or Chychrun we have to settle for not top players,
Schenn defensively, is better than Joseph, Dumoulin, Petry, Letang and Rutta….period I’m tired of the pussy Penguins getting gooned by other teams especially in the p[layoffs
And who do you think te Penguins should target? since you have all the answers?
No one. This is the worst version of the team that hasn’t won a playoff series in 4 years. Make moves at the deadline that will maximize your cap space this off-season. This isn’t NHL 23. They don’t have any cap space and have very few picks and prospects for trade bait, which they shouldn’t move anyway. And you blast Dumo, yet name a bunch of top tier GMs that you plan on trading him to. Do they not see his decline? And they’ll take KK and his $3m+ salary for this year and next? Why do you think you’re… Read more »
