Skyo's checked out of this thread because we finally have his PPQB, he doesn't have any more fantasies or pipe dreams

Maybe its a little LTIR magic, a la Sami Salo's mystery injury?

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I'll go out on a limb and suggest that we won't see a blockbuster trade from Benning. Doesn't seem to be his style. And I'm okay with that. I agree, no blockbusters, and maybe even not moving out the farm/press box pieces like Benn, Schaller, Baerstchi (which would clear over $6 mil in cap space). ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

If Juolevi can come out of nowhere and play half decent defense in Vancouver thats huge. Theyre going to need a few affordable assets with upside like that once Hughes and Pettersson get their 10 million dollar paydays Juolevi, Podkolzin, Hoglander, Rafferty, Woo and Lind could be the difference ma...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I'm not so sure after two years of toiling in the K in empty arenas, flying sketchy planes, and not knowing if your team will make payroll while being treated pretty poorly, that Tryamkin would be so quick to run back there over the AHL.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Even if they find a taker for Karlsson, will he return a 1st? I doubt it, more like Subban he'll go for a roster player and prospect.

He's still on pace for 60 points though...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I think the biggest Sharks mistake was letting Pavelski go. Kane Karlsson, Pavelski - little Joe is the one I would have kept.

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

I don't know what's better - leaves being out of the playoffs, out the thought of them bringing in one of the dumbest players of all time into a management position!

There's the Shanaplan, folks!

Re: 2019/20 Pacific Division

I'm also looking at Calgary's -12 in goals for/against and wondering how sustainable that is over another 32 games. Ya, I think Tkachuk's become too much of a distraction at a key part of the season. The flames aren't resilient enough to be the least-respected team in the league, unlike the Bruins,...

Re: 2019/20 Pacific Division

Looks like Arizona is starting to fade, and I seriously question the timing of the Gallant firing in Vegas. Could the Pac go all-Canadian for the 1-2-3 seeds? For most of the year I thought the central would have the two wild card spots, so best seeding is 2nd or 3rd. But right now it looks like any...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

I've only heard of one player where it was otherwise (can't remember who it was). Was it Tyler Myers? Capfriendly has an NMC, but the media coverage at the time said it was modified for the expansion draft: Myers also has a no-move clause in the first year of the deal, a full no-trade clause over t...

Re: Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond 2019/20

Just providing updates on some of our first round picks from the last decade. Anything wrong with that? You lead off with "Gillis" not "Canucks" former 1st rounders in each one.

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I could listen to this argument. It’s a hell of a lot better Yudell and his idea of parking Gaudette A fourth line of Loui/Sutter-/Beagle-Ferland would be truly built for the playoffs, or put Sutter with Gaudette again and shift Roussel to the 4th line - once the bottom-6 is healthy, there are seve...
