Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

You think we'll have a holdout in Hughes? With Barry as his agent it's not far fetched I suppose, but if Hughes holds out, so does Petey (same agent). Hughes will holdout for Petey money, but he shouldn’t get more than McAvoy money. It’s that simple. Over three years Petey should be shy of Barzal’s...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Planning for 2021/22 - If Schmiddy is here for the long-term, might as well utilize him best as the team's main LD, shelter Hughes to 2nd pairing, but gets all the powerplay time. Schmidt - Myers (highest paid dmen should get the toughest matchups, but they could be getting less than Hughes new $) ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

They won’t pencil Gadjovich in the line-up for next season. Likely they hope he shows well in the preseason and becomes a top injury call-up. At best he displaces MacEwen or Roussel on the fourth line/spare forward and works his way up from there if he shows the ability. I like him, but he’s still a...

Pearson Horvat Virtanen
Motte Pettersson Podkolzin
Hoglander Miller Boeser
Notte sure if Motte is Thing 1 material, but it might be worth exploring.

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

If it were my call, I’d tell Bettman we’ll be icing the comets the rest of the way and go fuck yourself Aquilini could get in touch with Mike to get in touch with Roberto to go bitch slap Gary upside the head. ( :| ) Great idea! That way Aquaman can avoid being bent over by Daly again. That’s getti...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

6 points in 6 AHL games for Rathbones pro rookie season. A rocket out of the gates. He won’t lag too long in the A. Brilliant draft pick. The farm looks great with promising prospects - Lind, Rathbone, Gadjovich, Lockwood and Woo! Can’t wait to see Rathbone on the number one PP next season when Hug...

Re: Brandon Sutter extension

The quote I said was if Miller were playing centre the best fit was Pod on the wing with Petey and Boeser. My exact quote was, “I’d want to try Podkolzin with Petey and Brock even if he won’t score as much as Hoglander. You wouldn’t want Hoglander and Boeser on the same line because neither has the ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Back to Gadjovich. Can anyone who has seen the kid this year comment on his foot speed. That was always going to be the issue with him. Has he improved it substantially? It might be nice to bring up a kid or three down the stretch and take a look at them. He’s supposed to be improved, but we won’t ...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

When I saw J.P. Barry on Donny and Dhali he seemed very smug as he suggested Eriksson should be bought out. Benning is too nice, but if it were me, Eriksson would already be on a plane to Utica. I’d be doing everything possible not to buy him out and have him play his final season in Utica, or retir...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

From the day Gadjovich was drafted he was a boom or bust prospect because of his skating. Blob isn’t wrong that he’s a bust until Gadjovich makes it in the big show. Scoring in the AHL is fine and good, but can he be an effective player at the NHL level? Basically Gadjovich is a bust until he proves...

Rick Dhaliwal @DhaliwalSports Barry on Pettersson and Hughes contracts : We will work on both deals together, like we did Toews and Kane in Chicago. Work on the structure. Environment for an offer sheet to Petey is depressed with no rising cap. CHEK TV https://twitter.com/DhaliwalSports/status/1380...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Even if you came to an agreement, the Pearson signing should have waited until after the expansion draft. Before they could protect three of Motte, Virtanen, Gaudette, MacEwen, or Lind. Now they can only protect two. This should have been a handshake deal until after the draft.

Re: Brandon Sutter extension

If they go with Miller at centre, I think Jake will be with Horvat and Pearson on a shut down third line. They played well in that role this season against top lines in Edmonton and Toronto. Horvat will have to give up some scoring. He won’t have a choice with Pearson and Virtanen on his wings, but ...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

No way would I have signed Pearson to this contract. They could have found a quicker waiver wire pickup that would offer nearly the same ability going forward for half the price. Terrible signing. Perhaps at two million this would have been acceptable, but this is just a ridiculously poor signing th...
