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

I’m kind of of the opinion signing Markstrom which ultimately likely means losing Demko is a bad idea. So let’s say a deal with Marky doesn’t happen this summer. How’s this for an idea? Trade Louie for Cory. There are rumours that New Jersey wants out from Schneider’s contract. They both have the ex...

Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate! (And personal insult thread)

I have thought the Canucks were going to make the playoffs each and every season since 1982 when Roger Nielsen created towel power. Before that I was only slightly sceptical. Mind you I have also thought they’ll win the cup each season, too. I’ve learned to live with disappointment. So it goes witho...

Can we please close the border!
Done!
A few days late, but it’s all good.

Nice to see we’re fighting WWIII against another species for a change, an insidious little bastard.
Stay safe and fight the good fight.

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Best way to stay safe is to stop using toilet paper immediately. Every time you take a crap wipe that crap off with your bare hands and don’t wash them. Having fecal matter dripping from your fingers will not only ensure social distancing, but also train you not to touch your face. Using toilet pape...

Re: NHL Season suspended - Now what?

Just giving Detroit the first overall pick may be what is fair, but it isn’t going to happen if the other thirty teams have a vote, and they do. There will be some kind of lottery. If the NHL was worried about being fair the Canucks wouldn’t have been tortured during the whole of its draft lottery h...

Re: NHL Season suspended - Now what?

Hypothetically, the Canucks make the playoffs that don’t happen, and according to HW they have to give up their pick. But the trade was lottery protected if they missed the playoffs. Let’s say their pick wins the “Crosby style” lottery for the first overall pick. Then do they still have to give up t...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I’m thinking there is better than 50% chance the season and playoffs are done. If that happens the interesting questions for the Canucks are do they surrender their first round pick if they don’t make the playoffs? If there are no playoffs they can’t have made them. And secondly who is a lottery tea...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Every team should send three healthy, Covid-19 tested players and a goalie to Yellowknife, since it has no virus yet. Each team plays a three-on-three, no substitutions, sudden-death tournament. If the opposition team scores on yours once, your playoffs are over. Each game would take maybe five minu...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Check that maybe Calgary would get in a wildcard spot over Winnipeg??? It depends which winning percentage they used.

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

It's probably lucky we're sitting just outside the playoffs in the standings if they cancel the season today. It should mean we keep the pick this year. Imagine if there were no playoffs and we still lost the pick. Ummm, sorry to bust your bubble, but by winning percentage we are ahead of Calgary b...

When the Cyclops was out, he and his men took a sharp razor blade burning the top pointy bit in the blazing, searing fire. ... Odysseus winked at his men and slowly aimed the blade towards the Cyclops's eye. He forcefully and quickly poked it down the eye ball. What she can’t see, she can’t stop, am...

This is such a fun team to watch.
