[Proposal] Trade Proposal Connor Garland to Washington for Anthony Mantha

Recommended Posts

First Question:  would JR / PA have to be drunk to consider this?


Second question: What would have the Canucks have to add to make the following happen:


Washington retains $2M and sends Mantha to the land of the Orca


Canucks send Garland to challenge Ovechkin for the Caps scoring title plus ??


It is a slow day so rather than day drinking, posting this ... not that far off.


Mantha does have size and skill but certainly tailed off a bit on the skill part the last few years. Perhaps a change of scenery and if not, then a 1 year commitment could either be cut loose or offered at TDL depending on where the Canucks are.


Question 3: if the "sweetenener" was a 5th round pick, would you do it?


Asbestos underwear on, flame away.

It isn't so much that Garland is useless out there by any stretch. But there are nearly five million reasons why a GM wouldn't want to trade for him - making moving him difficult. Obviously, management doesn't want to give anything up to do so, and I can't blame them.

Add in the light drama over the past year and a little extra drama starting a couple of days ago, it's a pretty challenging situation all around. I think this is actually a pretty good trade - assuming there is retention to even it out. Supposedly, Mantha has really worked hard in the offseason, and if he could return to form, he could be a real factor. And if not, if nothing else, he's one big feller, which our team could certainly use.

...and he just scored as I submitted this post. 🙂
