Re: Offseason grades so far

I look at the Miller price like this:

If Baertschi didn't have injury issues, and consistently scores 20-29 goals (not breaking 30) what would he be worth??

If we traded him for a 2nd and 3rd, would that be enough? Or would we want a 1st back for him?

And mopey.
I wish I could be "mopey"...

Like not just in that 'quiet, twiddling my fingers and playing with myself' kinda way, but more that 'Eeyore: woe is me, the sky is always cloudy, wind in my face and it's snowing' kinda way... you know, like Blob :lol: ;)

4th period, Sept 25, 2018:

Ottawa tried to trade Zack Smith last season and this summer. He’s now on waivers with 3-years left on his deal. Bit of a surprise, frankly.
$3.25M x 2 left on deal, no bonuses, 10 team no trade to clause.

Eriksson for Smith straight up.
SOLD!!

Re: Players You Hate

Fuck me. Torres was a beast. I remember a lot of his hits. I remember at the time thinking he didn’t deserve all the criticism. Seeing them again I’m like, no, he was a head hunter. LOL Lol. Yeah... not a lot of those are legal today, that's for sure!! Would like to see the hip check come back. Tho...

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

I started wearing reading glasses a year or so ago cause I couldn’t read a tape measure anymore or see the bubble on a level. Today I had to take a piss but I never took them off, I then looked in the mirror with the readers on for the first time and became alarmed at what I was seeing mainly at wh...

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 ba...

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

Here's another Loui Eriksson trade ideal to the Sens. LE straight up for Clarke MacArthur who Melynk is paying $4.65M for nothing, as he's on LTIR for another year. Whereas he can pay Eriksson $3M per to actually play for his team, Canucks just have to add a B-prospect or something of that nature. ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Great team mate all the way! Dorsett is great. However, I do not believe that the Canucks would sign Roussel if Dorsett was still around. Would that be nice if the Canucks could have both of them at the same time? :mrgreen: Yeah they should. Otherwise why have Ferlund and Rousell?? Teams need a cou...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Most players are probably asking for 8 year deals, but most GM's probably have new CBA on their minds... Hense the shorter terms we are seeing. Once the new (or extended) CBA certainty kicks in, longer contracts will probably come back in force. You think so? I dunno, if anything I kinda think they...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

4, 7, or 8 5 or 6 doesn’t get enough FA years. With less FA years, 5 or 6 comes at a lower AAV than 7 or 8 then right? 5 or 6 years seems to be in vogue these days for 2nd contracts. It gives team/player a * possibility * of an 8 year deal on the 3rd contract. Most players are probably asking for 8...
