Vancouver's Guide To 2015 Free Agency

You've learned to not expect much correct? Good, you won't be disappointed. A quick recap of the past week for Vancouver heading into the start of the silly season: 1. Traded Eddie Lack for picks and didn't trade Kevin Bieksa to San Jose because Doug Wilson is a fraud, making him a Duck instead earlier today. 2. Re-signed Linden Vey (here), Jacob Markstrom (here) & Alex Biega (yo). In fact, signing Biega to a $600,000 deal on the same day they dealt a ten year veteran because of his $4.6 million dollar deal may tip you off on the priorities at the moment. 3. Extended qualifying offers...

The Legend Of Eddie Lack

Carolina's new goalie was a fan favorite in Vancouver Before the Hurricanes brass had even reached the draft floor on Saturday morning, they were wheeling and dealing on the trade front.   When the dust settled, Anton Khudobin had been dealt to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for James Wisniewski and Eddie Lack was acquired from the Vancouver Canucks for two draft picks. Fans in Vancouver were not very happy to see Lack traded but the Canucks had three goalies and team officials needed to make a move. With Ryan Miller signed to a big contract, he wasn't going anywhere and Jacob Markstrom had...

Trading Eddie Lack not a popular decision

Trading Eddie Lack not a popular decision

SUNRISE, Fla. — Even the most popular figure in Vancouver Canuck history knew it was largely futile to try spinning as positive the franchise’s most unpopular trade in years.

Kuzma: Blueline a mess with Bieksa in limbo

SUNRISE, Fla. — Jim Benning left here with three defencemen, two right wingers and two centres from the NHL draft. He also left with one less goalie and one veteran blueliner in limbo. The Vancouver Canucks general manager will have to sell a hockey-mad market on his forward-looking and financial rationale of moving Eddie Lack to the Carolina Panthers on Saturday for 2015 and 2016 draft picks. And he’ll have to sell Kevin Bieksa on the commitment to broker a suitable trade after the long-serving defenceman agreed to waive his no-trade clause late Thursday and accept a move to San Jose,...

The New Guy: Guillaume Brisebois

The guy we traded Eddie lack for... Hope he likes tacos! Who is this Guy? Name: Guillaume Brisebois Position: D Height: 6'1.75" Weight: 175 Shoots: L Born July 21, 1997 in Longueuil, QC Current Team: Acadie-Bathurst (QMJHL) Trader Jim pulled the trigger early this morning and dealt Eddie Lack to the Carolina Hurricanes for the 66th pick this year and a 7th round choice in 2016.  He then used the pick to select the Captain of the Acadie-Bathurst Titan of the Quebec league.  That's right, we drafted another leader... Obviously it's something the front office places high value on! Final...

Jacob Markstrom was once considered a better goalie than Eddie Lack. The Vancouver Canucks are gambling mightily that he will be again.

Eddie Lack Traded To Carolina For...Not Much

Meh On June 30th, 2013, the Canucks traded Cory Schneider to NJ for the 9th overall pick (good ol' Bo Horvat) with the logic being they still had a starter and a young upstart named Eddie Lack to rely on. On March 4th, 2014 the Canucks traded Roberto Luongo and Steven Anthony to Florida for Jacob Markstrom and Shawn Matthias with the logic that the Luongo nightmare had to end and it's Eddie Lack's time to shine. Then, on June 27th, 2015, Lack was traded to the Hurricanes for a third round pick (#66) in the 2015 Entry Draft and a seventh round pick in the 2016 Entry Draft with the logic...

Edmonton Oilers miss out on Eddie Lack, traded cheaply by Vancouver Canucks to Carolina

Hurricanes Acquire Goalie Eddie Lack From Vancouver

Carolina looks to be shuffling their deck: they acquired Eddie Lack from Vancouver and rumors are they will trade Anton Khudobin. The Hurricanes goalie situation just got more interesting, with Carolina trading for Vancouver netminder Eddie Lack, according to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston. The Canucks will receive a 2015 third-round pick (66th overall) and a 2016 seventh-round pick from the Canes. Pierre LeBrun, a reporter for ESPN and TSN, said the Hurricanes are expected to trade goalie Anton Khudobin today. Moving in Lack for Khudobin — both are unrestricted free agents after the...

Gallagher: If Lack, Bieksa go for draft picks, they’d better be good ones

Gallagher: If Lack, Bieksa go for draft picks, they’d better be good ones

There is a certain irony in all these rumours about Eddie Lack and Kevin Bieksa being moved when it comes to the fellow doing the moving. Perhaps the most popular player ever to be traded out of Vancouver was Trevor Linden, when Mike Keenan was brought in through Mark Messier’s influence and proceeded to turf the fellow who had been the captain that took them to the 1994 Cup final.

Sabres among most interested for Eddie Lack according to Aaron Ward

Lack won 32 games last season and started in four playoff games for the Canucks last season. With Chad Johnson as the only goalie currently on the Sabres roster, it's no secret that Tim Murray is searching for a starter. It's a very busy goalie market, with plenty of sellers. Among the most likely to be moved is Vancouver backup Eddie Lack, who TSN's Aaron Ward reports the Sabres are very interested in. Much like NYR and Talbot, VAN has multiple offers on Lack. Hearing BUFF among most interested. #TSN — Aaron Ward (@TSNAaronWard) June 24, 2015 Lack, 27, has played in 41 games for the...

Canucks Player Autopsy: Eddie Lack

A review of the taco-guzzling Swede in net for the Vancouver Canucks and what his future might hold. Who is he? Posistion: G Catches: Left Size: 6'4", 187 Born: 01/05/88 What did he do? For the better part of the year, Lack served as the Canucks' backup goaltender, playing second fiddle to Ryan Miller, who was brought in as a UFA in the previous summer. And as the year went on, Canucks fans were treated to yet another goalie controversy. Miller and Lack were seemingly neck and neck in terms of quality, with Lack riding a slightly higher save percentage, so members of the Canucks media...
