Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

I really miss laughing at cheeseburger nonis. He totally looked like randy bobandy :lol: Why wouldnt you do anything in your power to not look like that? Same with Jason Kenney... :lol: About Kenney, though, nah... he's like Fred Flintstone. Peter van Loan looked like a grey-haired Barney Rubble. U...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

As others have said, lining Ferland and Virtanen on a 3rd line would be a terror on the forecheck. Can people just give it a rest on trying to get Virtanen out of here??? I just don't get the hate, or the devaluation, or whatever you want to call it. Virtanen is not a deal-sweetener, he's a signific...

Re: 2019 offseason

Sabres acquire Henri Jokiharju from the Blackhawks for Alexander Nylander. Their defense is killer. Dahlin Montour McCabe Miller Scandella Jokiharju They'll be trading Risto for a forward soon. The only thing they are kinda weak on is center depth experience. They have cap space, Risto is their pri...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Hoglander looks like a steal. Love the grit, motor, skill combo of both the wingers Podkozlin and Hoglander. The two will be very complimentary to what we have here. He can sure skate. Terrific agility on his feet. His footwork was what I noticed as well. Edge work is amazing, finish, not so much. ...

Re: How did Jimmy do

That was the rumoured price for Barrie, who is a UFA next summer. Benning got wise to ole Joe Sakic Way. Benning took the next left to get to Burnaby 8 Rinks and stopped at the Myer hot dog stand on the way And yet he was traded for substantially less. Did you hear this rumour while stumbling aroun...

GUSEV getr done. https://www.tsn.ca/report-vegas-golden-knights-considering-trading-nikita-gusev-1.1331735 Kucherov suggested to stevie y to get him, gusev outscored him back in Russia.

Re: How did Jimmy do

The Myers contract is solid, and the blueline is better with Myers than without Myers. Benn is a good pick-up at that price and can work the lower pairings. Pending development from Juolevi and perhaps another depth signing, Vancouver's defence looks better than it did. If only Benning could have sn...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I have a trade to announce... Avs Acquire: - Andre Burakovsky Caps Acquire: - UFA forward Scott Kosmachuk - Second-round pick (2020) - Third-round pick (2020) Jesus Christ... these guys are going to be scary up front. Burakovsky was one of the ones I was hoping Benning could swing a deal to get. Oh...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Weighing in on the draft and the Miller trade.... Re. The major-junior/AHL route, the canucks are definitely not alone in that regard. The vast majority of offensive stars in the league skip the AHL. The AHL is really a proving ground for B/C level prospects - which is something the canucks have st...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I generally have a dim view of Russians because if they get their nose out of joint in the slightest, they tend to bolt or want out of Vancouver. Just as the club seems to have a good history with Swedes, it seems the inverse with Russians. I loved Bure to death as a Canuck, and Almo put up numbers ...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I'm bracing myself for Jāņi and Līgosvētki here in Latvia. Beer, cheese with coriander seeds, leaping over bonfires, more beer, and walking off with someone to 'pick flowers'... wonder how many March/April babies there are around here??? Oh yeah... back to the draft. I have a feeling Boldy is the pi...

Sabres fans seem to want some younger middle six wingers in the trade for Risto.
That probably means affordable Jake mm?
See if they’ll take Goldy and a 4th or a prospect.

I believe Karlsson May want to play in the East.


Ottawa isn’t happening. He HATES Eugene Melnyk.
Yeah, I think Melnyk burned that bridge pretty good. Can Montreal afford him and Weber?
