Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I would be happy to sell Hutton or MDZ (or both) as well.. anything to reduce the logjam on D and make room for a rookie. Hutton can be sold on the 'not as bad as it looked' last year and MDZ on leadership or fitness. Chirelli negotiates just as bad as Benning, so it reasonable that JB could get 3rd...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

It has nothing to do with Dorian, the market sets the premium, Dorian is just the executor of what the market will bear for his asset. He has his asking price - take it or leave it, and the dance partner has his best offer, take it or leave it. … Again, don’t matter who you are, you never get great...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Bo, Gaunce and Hutton are the only players left that were drafted by the last regime. If you include the entire league, Connauton and Schroeder round out the abysmal era that was Gillis & co. 37 draft picks over six entry drafts and only one single legitimate player. :shock: Absolutely appalling. Y...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I'd say we are picking outside the top 15 next year. sure. so without that 4-8 pick, then whats the price to draft bother Jack? Still our next 2 first round picks, a middling prospect (Lind, Brisbois, etc) and a top prospect? now are we giving up too much? With the pool as deep as it is, couls we s...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

So pondering what we look like at the draft next year, and wondering what it takes to trade for 1st overall pick to select brother Jack. A couple of educated guesses before speculation: 1) we get a good pick in the 4-10 range again (no matter how bad we suck next year, just like the constant of taxe...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

We back, baby. We back. Can't believe Blake Price was against this?? he wanted the flying V of all fucking things. I totally voted for the Flying V. If only we could have voted it on that nasty orange base colour. Ugliest jersey in pro sports. EVER. Would have been epic (and funny as hell-especiall...

http://dailyhive.com/vancouver/rick-celebrini-physio-canucks-whitecaps-warriors Too bad. I’m not sure. He’s part of the medical staff that has seen the Canucks be among the league leaders in injuries the past few years. Coincidence? He was also supposed to be a guru for injury prevention... that di...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I would think it's pretty much impossible to have anything but a 'right now' prospect list... with every guy coming from a different background, with a different skill set, filling a different position and role, all at different ages and stages of development, no quantifiable marker to measure intan...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Should we try for Jack? What would it take? Our history of brothers might push me there.... Horvat? Juloivie? What?? Our first plus++ With us sliding DOWN the draft order EVERY YEAR, what's the point of tanking?? we wont win anyway.. If we get lucky, we get lucky. If we end up in 31st at the end of...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Take a long hard look at our current financial situation. https://www.spotrac.com/nhl/vancouver-canucks/ Not as much leeway as I thought. Personally, I like some fat on a BBQ rib steak but I would really like to see some "cutting away" on this one. It would be a glorious thing to behold if some how...

like I said, an off topic post can be funny (thanks for proving I post the odd one!) or even a thread of it can be entertaining, but you two wade into it on EVERY thread, back and forth, with miles of quotes and requotes to prove a point and it always degenerates into a series of attacks that are si...
