Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Read on twitter we are not resigning Matt Brassard.

It does free up a contract spot.

Re: Karlsson, Myers, None or ... ? Poll

no team can have 3-4 guys making more than 8 million a year and 2 guys making more than 10 and still ice a competitive team. That's true, except for every Cup champion and finalist for the past decade. ummmm... The Capitals have 0 players over 10 million, and only 1 or 2 over 8 last year there big ...

Re: Karlsson, Myers, None or ... ? Poll

Hmm are the adults the ones that think pissing huge dollars into the fourth line improves the team a great deal? I mean where would this team be without Beagle and Schaller? Those adults? :lol: No Blob. Wrong adults. I am talking about the adults having one conversation when the pre-teen who is not...

Re: Karlsson, Myers, None or ... ? Poll

Skyo, So you sign EK for 10 or 11... then what? Start winning? and make every player better on the team, increasing trade value down the road, making it easier to move cap when needed. glossing over the fact that adding him would still have left Last games Defence with 2 of 3 of Sautner, Brisbois a...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Problem was, we didn't have any assets worth anything to acquire those extra picks with. Didn't Benning turn Kesler/Bieksa/Garrison and Lack into 1st/2nd/2nd/3rd/3rd round picks? Of course he turned around and lit most of those on fire... packaging Bonino and the Bieksa pick for Sutter. turning the...

Re: 2019 UFA

Anyways yes I'd throw all the cash at EK July 1st first and foremost. [/b] FFS Skyo.. Get off the sniffing glue already. We are NOT getting EK. He is not coming here. We don't want him at the price tag he will command. It will be an overpayment (to say the least) to get him here. He is an albatross...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Problem was, we didn't have any assets worth anything to acquire those extra picks with. Gillis emptied the cupboards going for it. That was mandated from owners. No problem with that, as we went all the way to games 7. The we got JB. In his first couple years, there was a different mandate from ups...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

One thing the Canucks can do better is quit signing guys like we did last season and start giving some of prospects real chances. Looking forward to seeing what Gaudette can do in an entire season. Yes I know about depth yada yada yada, injuries occur, I get that. Like to see more planned developme...

Re: 2019 UFA

No question about the heart when it comes to Stecher. Just the role he ends up in. He's actually paid like a good 5-6 guy in today's NHL. True op pairing guys are pretty much $8M and up, if signing new deals in the last 18 months. Legit studs obviously are north of $9M. Second pairing guys are land...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

6 rookies in the lineup last night. anyone still really complaining that we cant draft and develop players anymore should give their head a shake. I love how at the beginning of the year, there was a whack of people who were predicting that we would not give youth a chance this year. How many rooki...

Re: 2019 UFA

Eberle is too slow. Team needs to get quicker I've been holding on to this. https://thehockeywriters.com/edmonton-oilers-jordan-eberle-problem/ The team needs scoring. I would entertain Eberle on a one-year, show me you still got it, deal. There's no risk for the Canucks. It's a Vanek-esque low ris...

Re: 2019 UFA

I would go $7.5M on Myers. A bit more if the term is 4 years or less. The only RS guy we have in the system that is worth crossing our fingers on is Woo, and realistically he is probably at least 3 years away from being ready for a regular top-4 spot. A full year in Utica next season, call-up duty ...
