Re: Canucks Contracts

My two cents I have come around on the deal, doesn't mean I love it, but I can live with it. The first is a bit of a steep price to pay and, yes, I would have preferred to see it spend on a quality D man, but I can live with. We don't want to be the new Oilers. I am assuming that Miller gels well wi...

Re: Canucks 2019-2020 line-up

I have a feeling that Tanev will be gone before camp, wouldn't be surprised if he is packaged with Virtanen to bring in some substantial D help.

Millers contract which is $26,250 over 5 years with a modified NTC....
Wtf?! Just 26 grand? That's less than half of what I earn in a year! :shock:

What happened to league minimum?
Even worse for him, it was front loaded too.

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Miller (6'1", 218lb) put up nearly identical numbers to Bo Horvat (6', 215) until buried in Tampa depth last year. He and Bo are similar size and on similar contracts (Miller is $250K/yr cheaper than Bo with the same # yrs left on his deal). Miller returns to top 6 position he held with the Rags. M...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Like many are saying, can't understand why we gave up the first. At least it is lottery protected I guess. His trades are horrible it seems.

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I like this pick. Sounds like he is a skilled mean SOB. I like. We can wait a year or two for him.

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

if Luongo retires now our cap recapture is just over 2.8 M per for the next three years. But if he waits a years it’s over 4.5 for 2 years and if he waits 2 more years it’s a whopping 8.5 for one year. Ya, if he’s going to retire and not go on LTIR it’s better for us if he does it this year. Thank ...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

I saw on twitter one 'reporter' post a hypothetical trade as: Horvat and 10 OV for Barrie and 4 OV, with the caption 'would you do it?' Yeah, that would be a tough trade to turn down. Again, not targeting Barrie here because I am not sold on the solution, but if Horvat goes to Colorado, Jost become...

Comments from Colorado's HF...The rumor there is Horvat for Barrie; It's not a rumour, it's a suggestion from a silly poster over there... Talk to em!!!! Fuck that, keep Horvat unless it's for Seth Jones type of dman, not Barrie, sheesh, you can acquire him in a year for free. What if they throw in...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

It is. I would have liked to see it around 5.5 per year but can live with the 6. A big win for Benning today.
