Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

His failure was not recognizing when the team peaked and pivoting to younger players right away. Trading Bieksa, Kesler, Burrows, etc at peak value would have been gut-wrenching at the time but something that a stone-cold logic driven sociopath would have done. Actually, if Gillis had traded Burrows...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I’m not sure adding Ferland to the team was wise if the pregame warm up routine is changing to unicycle-juggle-offs. :wow:

Re: Canucks Young Guns

What’s with Pettersson and Hoglander juggling and riding unicycles.
Is this an NHL thing now? Are they going to have a unicycle-juggle-off?

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Neal has little competition for a top six spot, he should do much better in Edmonton.
Calgary doesn’t need Lucic to be much more than a grinder, so that is better for him too.
Might be a good trade for both teams, but Lucic is more likely to bust because he is quite slow now.

They would be better off if they could get Kiprusoff to come out of retirement.

Re: Offseason grades so far

It’d be nice to have not moved the first, everyone can agree, but top six LW was a black hole on the Canucks and the prospects they were hoping to challenge for that spot were not developing well (Dahlen, Goldobin, Gadjovich). I mentioned earlier this year that the top line would ideally get someone...

Re: Offseason grades so far

Giving up Tanev for picks or prospects reduces the chances for making the playoffs, so I can’t see it happening unless the Canucks fall out of the race by the TDL. He is a UFA after this year and might be equivalent to a rental this year if Woo or Rafferty look ready to replace him next season. Not ...

Re: Offseason grades so far

We’re using the wrong descriptions
Not rebuilding
Not retooling

Just filling holes
or
Simply “Building” (a competitive team)

Re: Offseason grades so far

The last time the Canucks had a contending team they basically only had the Sedins in the “rebuild” and not much else. They only became contenders when a couple of grinders (Kesler and Burrows) started scoring. They picked up most of their other forwards through trades and free agency. It came out o...

Re: Let's get creative with Erikkson...

Is this a solution to the Eriksson issue? Throw him in piles or plucked ear hairs wherever he goes until he gives up and retires. Is that it? Brilliant!

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

JP Barry is on the air saying things you don’t hear often in the media. I think he is desperate. I think he has been told his client is likely on his way to Utica unless some other team will take him without giving up other assets. Now he is floating that the Canucks need to take someone equally bad...
