Not a bad pickup, was he the habitual steroid user? I think he was caught once.

Yes, he was busted for steroids, said he did not take them though.

It's almost like stats and analytics don't tell you a whole lot on their own. Watching them play seems to help though, I find.

Well, that sounds very believable.

Schmidt is a nice upgrade on Tanev. Vancouver upgrades their top 4 for a 3rd round pick.

I am really surprised that this trade happened within the division. Surprised that a divisional rival would help them out. And surprised that they would gift a player to a divisional rival.

No team out east was interested in a free defenseman and a 3rd round pick?

I'm looking at you Cali

This deal was already in place.

It was PED's, not sure if it was steroids. He denied using in multiple media forums, including on Spittin Chuckles.

That’s a great pick up, Schmidt for a third is great value.

Way better than 4 x $4.5M for Tanev.

Ok, I guess Jim knew on Saturday that by Monday night Pietrangelo would sign with Vegas and he would get a top 4 dman for a 3rd rounder. My mistake.

I don't have strong opinions about Schmidt or Tanev, but it would have been sweet to buy a really good player with the Oilers picks.

He's not wrong. There were rumours that the Canucks were waiting in the wings for this. Not sure how long they had been waiting by Wyshynski did report it late last week.

One thing is for certain...

Vegas just totally saved Benning's ass from what was an absolutely horrific off-season up to this point.
