Re: Kyle Beach

Beach is an idiot. Everybody uses terms like 'power-forward' and "plays with an edge" to describe him. No. He plays like an moron. If diving, scrapping small guys and barking at everyone from the opposing players to his own coach means "playng with an edge", then God help the hockey fan who likes it...

Re: Your Vancouver Canucks

From the list above, here are some names I have questions about... Hansen. I like him, but AV doesn't seem too confident in him. After watching the effectiveness and grit of Chicago's bottom 6, Hansen might be the kind of guy MG is looking to replace with someone more physically imposing. Hordichuk....

They can bring Theo to training camp again. He's another year sober.

Two useless signings. Gotta head over to Cowpuck to watch the hand-wringing. 8-)

Can't see Tambellini being anything more than an injury call-up.

I swear...Tanguay is the most overrated player this league has seen in 10 years.

Re: Manny Malhotra to Canucks

I like the signing, but hate the numbers. Didn't Manny make $700,000 last season? If so, did he do anything to warrant a raise like this? I find it difficult to believe MG couldn't have done this for a whole lot less cash. As for Hodgson, I think it would have been unfair to expect him to come in an...

Re: Keith Ballard for Our First

Just read this on The Sun online: At the insistence of Canucks' pro scouting director Eric Crawford, the team demanded that intriguing Panther prospect Victor Oreskovich be included in the deal. I like things like this. If there's a young guy somewhere around the NHL or AHL that you like and think ...

Re: Canucks Pre-draft Thread

Third and fourth lines could use some retooling but I think that D was definitely our Achilles' Heel. Our previous strategy of having a bunch of 2nd pairing guys hasn't seemed to pan out. Maybe I am wrong but this trade seems to just be a continuation of that strategy, not a shift from it. We need ...

Re: Keith Ballard for Our First

Like Tallon is going to go on TV and say he fleeced Gillis in a trade. His stating that 10 teams were interested is totally irrelevant. Which teams were they? What did they offer? Were they serious interests or just general queries? What is mildly relevant (and is even still of limited use for adju...

4th round...Canucks draft Adam Polasek from the QMJHL.

He has to turn out better than Libor did. :(

Re: Hamhuis and Philly are not close to a deal

So bye bye Gonchar? Well, you would have to figure that if there's no deal there pretty quick, then his heart is set here. Gonchar reportedly wants a three year deal and given that he is thirty-seven should he retire after year one, the remaining two years of his contract continue to count against ...
