Re: GDT: OCT 23 Canucks @ Kraken 7 PST CBC/SNET

Boy, reading back through this thread, this is a tightly-wound fan base. It's been a while since we could see the boys walk in and win in a high-pressure away game. Even the great playoff results were effectively on neutral territory. They just walked in to most amped up building of the past few sea...

Well said.

Except in Donny's case, since he hates Odjick :lol:

Benning is bringing home the cup, nevermind the BerryMan Blues, he grew up down by the train tracks of Wall and Dundas street, drinking his first beers at the Princeton Hotel, he will come around to the Benning Plan You and the Berryman probably bumped uglies together in some fleabag hotel in the D...

Re: Canucks Window

Bloody Buttman starting us out on a 6 game road trip after the season we had last year. First game should have been the home opener with the phil mcKrakens! I'm actually happier opening with a six game road trip. We've already seen the local media/fanbase ready to fire Green after two losses, and t...

Re: Past Canuck Players

CP was talking about our fairly decent 86 team with the players listed. We were Cinderella in 82, but for the most part mediocre to terrible for almost the entirety of the decade until Pat Quinn came onboard. All I know is I don't want to hear Lever's take on the big Irishman, not in this thread or...

Re: Trade Rumours & Armchair Pipe Dreams 20-21 Sponsored by SKYO

Seriously though, I just haven't heard Wright described as the next mcgoof. Gretzky said McDavid was the best Mario, which I think has turned out to be pretty spot on - I saw a crazy stat that he has 49 points in his last 19 reg season games, which is fucked. But I bring that just to emphasize the g...

Do I detect some falsity in your voice sir? :D :D Honestly, I love the proposal, and this is the thread for those kinds of talk! But I'm just pointing out that there is no guarantee of getting any of those guys until after the lotto. Even if we guess who will have the top odds (*cough Montreal), th...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I'm not super high on Chychrun (all kidding aside) - I saw the fancy stats nerds touting him as the true #1d in Arizona, while saying what a dope Benning was for adding OEL. My suspicion - so far looking reasonably accurate - is that Chychrun was heavily sheltered behind OEL, that OEL was in fact th...

Ok here's something crazy, I also didn't notice Jones at all last night, so I checked the box score...

He played almost 28 fucking minutes!

Looked like ol Ben Hutton when he led the league in TOI for a while on the sad sack Canucks of yore.

One shot at the lotto wouldn't be enough, we'd need to trade Petey for one pick and Hughes for another.

Then we can really do a rebuild proper, Sabres style!

Jones is 27 and will start earning 9.5 when he's 28.

Criticizing this scenario to the dude rubbishing a 21 yr old McKinnon is far from comparable
Geez, so Jones is 3 years younger than OEL, and comes at a 30% premium?

It’s four games into the season. By that rationale Cale Makar is the worst defender in the game.
Well, he's no Chychrun. He's on track to be the next Ristolainen perennial green jacket winner.

. Seth has been a good player for most of his career, though I’m not sure if you want to be paying him 9.5 million. I would be quite concerned after watching him yesterday. He looks no better than the Poolman Maybe send them Hamonic, Sutter, and a second and complete the pillage? Chychrun will look...
