Re: Canucks Young Guns

Theres still another season til expansion isnt there? Yeah but I don't think you want to wait until everyone else is trying to offload their players they also can't protect. Maybe this summer there's a market for him that actually gets you a decent return. Ideally we dont lose an A level asset for ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I can see the seagulls taking him and both teams end up happy. 4 year deal sounds about right Trading would be a better option but goaltenders value is always the issue. What other goalies will be as good as Marky (and available)for the expansion team to take ahead of him? Sounds like a good way to...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Demko has been merely human the past few and I believe it is a good peak at why we need Marky to sign an extension. This is no slight against TD...he has been very impressive this year. So you keep Marky over Demko? I doubt Marky signs for 1 year.. why would he? And then I think you have to trade D...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Unless your anything but a white man.. then you cant use the N word. African Americans call each other that all the time. If he actually used that word at a specific person, then yeah, he has whatever is coming to him. But he didn't call anyone the N word.. or at least I have not yet seen where he ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Many of you are acting like he's being accused of saying n****r back in the 30's. I was a child of the 80's knowing this to be probably the only word I shouldn't say. This isn't a new thing. If you are calling a black man a n****r in the year 2009 I have no sympathy for whatever is brought on you.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

If Kovalchuck isn't good enough for one of the worst team in the NHL, why Is he good for us?!?? Because we're so desperate to see Loui gone? (I'd rather just waive him and not take on another anchor.) sure. but if we are swapping boat anchors, make sure you don't get a heavier anchor. Is the extra ...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

I have no idea why the Canucks would get rid of depth for picks considering where they are in the standings. Stecher had a mediocre game, but so did many others. He is still and NHL level Dman. One injury to Tanev or Myers and people will be complaining endlessly if he were traded away. Stecher doe...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

+1,let's see where we're at in 10 - 20 games Seems to be how last season ended for him. So can a team neutralize a player like EP so easily with scouting tape/positioning and/or blanket coverage? Its one of the more interesting atory lines early this season along with how fan-fuckin-tastic Marky is...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Why not see if fantenberger steals his job because its not as far fetched as some might think Isn't this going to happen by default just by signing Fantenberger to the team and having a pre-season? Why actively try and get rid of Stetcher? (just chiming in, I'm on Blob's side of not understanding t...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

But last season he was on the top pair for significant chunks of time, and he was way out of his depth. Meanwhile some fancy-stats darlings are trying to convince you that he's the best defencemen the Canucks have. Wasn't he on the top pair because our D was bad and often injured? We've improved ou...
