Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

. It's early in the practice, but; Brendan Batchelor@BatchHockey Brock Boeser and Tyler Toffoli are in blue jerseys at morning skate (which usually denotes the top six). Eriksson, MacEwen and Virtanen are all in white. I think Boeser might be back in. Stay tuned for line rushes. #Canucks 10:27 AM ·...

Re-sign Markstrom (without an NMC). 15 months from now decide which one of Marx/Demko you want to protect. We're going to lose an asset in the X-draft, if they choose the goalie we don't protect, fine. Exactly right, we’re gonna lose somebody, no point in doing something stupid like Florida, if the...

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

I don’t get this. Why is everyone so sure they will absolutely pick a goalie from Vancouver? :| If Marky is exposed, I believe he will be the best exposed goalie by a long shot. If Demko is looking like he's ready to be a full-time starter in 21/22, he will likely be the best exposed goalie. Every ...

Re: LOL

Total speculation but could it be that they simply knew his reputation personality-wise and didn't want that in the organization? They've constantly talked about getting good personalities on the team. Usually more towards leader-type personalities I think, but I could certainly see them thinking he...

Re: LOL

Linden Vey is about as valuable as a used condom So ESQ would you just deal all the picks under round 2 for washed our prospects like Vey and Pedan etc? The Pearson acquisition was undoing a horrible shitty trade. I’m glad to have him but I would have taken a 7th to unload Gudbranson at that point....

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...

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...
