Re: 2018-2019 Stanley Cup Finals

If they win I’d let Marchand make the 1st round pick in front of the Canucks fans while kissing his newest cup ring and chugging a bottle of whiskey. But you hate Benning. The truth comes out - blob is actually a Bruins fan. It all makes sense now - Benning was dead to him as soon as he left the Bl...

The Bruins winning it would be hilarious
Why? Because their management at the time had them set up much better the Vancouver's management after the 2011 Cup.

Marchand, Kreji, Bergeron, Chara, Rask
Krug was there too, and he's been a big factor on the PP as Chara declined.

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs. Round three

I can see how the refs missed this one though. Meier plays the puck with his hand and then swipes at it with his stick as it goes by a STL defender. It’s a knuckle puck as it travels so it’s possible they think he gets it with his stick before it goes to Karlsson. Obviously not on the replay, but th...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

If I were Holland I wouldn’t be looking to trade either of my top two centres. You build around that. Again, I wasn't making a trade proposal involving the Canucks, but a fair return from the Canucks for McDavid absolutely involves Elias Pettersson going the other way. Wouldn't you rather have Drai...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Leivo was this year’s Mason Raymond. Raymond has a lesser shot and dangle ability and was half as physical, but he had great speed and knew how to back check on the wing. Oh and he had a mean button hook along the half-boards to avoid a hit.....always followed by a backhand dump around the boards in...

Re: How to fix the Canucks defense?

Beach has ZERO NHL games played? lol Yes Eriksson, Sutter, Beagle are overpaid, but obviously more so Eriksson being dumb overpaid, but between Eriksson, Sutter and Beagle they have a combined: 2,132 NHL games played, with 152 playoff games. These guys are pro's and are better than all the career A...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Benning seems confident he will be able to fill roster needs via trade. Well more confident about trades being a possibility than in past years. I hope this doesn’t mean he will go all Chiarelli on us! Our roster needs are not small.....what the hell is he planning on giving up to fill those needs?...

Horvat didn't play a singl...

Re: 2019 offseason

The argument about Benning should have taken Tkachuk has been done to death at this point IMHO. There's no guarantee Tkachuk develops along the same curve in Vancouver, and a good chance that with Desjardains behind the bench he spends his first year toiling in the AHL. Pesky scoring winger vs 2-wa...

Re: 2019 offseason

Duncan Keith was drafted a year late and still took 3 years to make it to the NHL.....and this was when the Blackhawks sucked. I’m not worried about Juolevi yet. He was a 2nd round pick Reinforcing my point that 17 is too young to effectively evaluate defensive prospects with any sort of consistenc...
