Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Kicking tires. Didn’t Tavares do the same thing? Visited a half dozen cities prior to signing, wasn’t the Canucks one of them Yes, but not before the UFA-discussion window. That is very curious, I really think the weird Swedish love-in might tip the scales in our favour, especially since according ...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Leaves to Tuna: "Slut!" Well, you can't blame tuna, he's jumped off the Leaves bandwagon after years of let-downs. I don't think I could take it as a fan, so after all your suffering cheering for the worst franchise in hockey, enjoy the basketball ... Who knows, maybe they'll face another team in t...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Anyways, the main point or question i wish to put forward here has to do with the viability of Benning actually falling back in the draft this year- does it make sense? If you think of the last few years picking in the top 6, we've had teams above us make surprising, off-the-board picks. By the tim...

Who was it that used to get all hot and bothered by jerseys? Mathonwy? I think Skyo did years ago?

Anywho, new jerseys don't say Vancouver anymore.

Re: 2018-2019 Stanley Cup Finals

It all started 11 years ago That's about right for length of a rebuild. They moved on from the Pronger era and the 25-straight playoff appearances, went into the toilet, and it took them 11 years from when they drafted their franchise player. Too bad people here don't have that kind of patience. :d...

Re: 2018-2019 Stanley Cup Finals

Boston is now in sole possession of the record for most Stanley Cup Final losses.

Perhaps there is a god after all?

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Schaller could be a good option for Utica though, it’s important to have good veteran guys that can play in the ahl. I don’t think schaller is the type of guy that would pout about it either. He knows he’s a borderline guy. Ya same with Spoons. I don't see any reason to buyout guys with one year le...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

It wasn’t a disaster for Florida. They rid themselves of a poor player who was about to become expensive. Let me know when Gudbranson gets expensive, its only been, what, 3 years, but I guess you're right its bound to happen... What they did with the assets that Vancouver gifted them however ..... ...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Who is this “William” with a 10 million dollar cap hit? William Nylander. Remember him? He's the guy you brought up in every Benning-bashing post back when Virtanen was written off by you at age 19. Blond? Looks like he can't do a chin up? You desperately wanted to draft him and said Benning was an...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

I wonder if the Raps can come back from the classless behaviour of the fans, which gave a huge boost to the Warriors.

What a classic TSN turning point for this series, undone by the idiot Toronto fans.

Now, will it make sense if he discusses the Raptors after that choke-job?
