(Discussion) Is this a possibility?


Recommended Posts

While Arturs Silovs hasn’t had much of an NHL career to date, he has shown signs of a massive potential future if he continues to grow, especially after being thrown into a playoff situation and getting 1 win away from taking the team to the conference finals. We’ve all penciled him in as our backup for Demmer next year, but given his RFA status do you think there’s a possibility if we qualify him and don’t sign him right away, another team may try to offer sheet him a decent contract to try to steal him away? Maybe a team with a little cap flexibility who doesn’t have a lot of high end assets in net? I’m going into this offseason assuming we re-up him at 2 years and 1 mil or less per given lack of experience. But realistically speaking, as we wait on big names like Lindholm, Zadorov, and Hronek, I am worried Silovs gets lost in the mix and maybe another team says “this kid is gonna be good, and the Canucks are against the cap. Let’s swoop in and see what happens.” Realistically, I doubt many GMs would try to offer much given the minimal experience, but he’s certainly at least proven he can play at the NHL level and has potential to be really good sooner rather than later. 
 

Is this a potential valid concern to have?

i think it is a valid concern but offer sheeting is rare because its a supremely douchebaggy move and usually incurs some retaliation

 

itd probably be easier for a GM to make vancouver a fair offer

anythings possible, but I don't know why we would not sign him before the opening of free agency. 

 

But some team would have to offer over 2.1 mil AAV, I suppose thats possible and its only a 2nd round pick in compensation. 

 

I don't know that Silovs walks away from his opportunity here for just a 1 year payday either, he seems like he knows what he has here with Clark.
