Why are they untouchable though?
I thought the same thing. You should have no untouchables except for your first round pick this year.Why are they untouchable though?
Petey's got 1 year left and will be due big money. If it takes 3 years for the Canucks to be good again Hughes is 26 and has 1 year left on his contract & Demko is 30 and a pending UFA.
Keeping those three also make it a lot harder to tank as they'll probably remain good hockey players and at the very least keep the Canucks off the basement floor.
If you're gonna do this you have to DO this. If you cash in Petey this season you can probably grab two first rounders plus off someone. At the very least, considering you're probably in tough to get him to re-sign anyway, that one should be a no-brainer.
If you're doing less you're just doing the same thing.
I screamed this about the Habs for two years, then when they finally broke the fuck down and dumped everything they're immediately everybody's "Fun" team even though they suck and will probably suck for another year at least.I thought the same thing.

I also agree it’s time to cash in on Petey as he’s the real reason Boeser hasn’t hit 50 yet.
