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

We were talking about Hamhuis not Garrison. I wondered if I was misremembering things a bit and did a search of the trade at the time. By the time Hamhuis was available a lot of teams had already made decisions. Cam Cole wrote an interesting article after the deadline - "Vancouver Canucks misplayed...

Hey Blob, looks like we were both writing at the same time. Agree with what you said. Cheers

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

I agree that you don't ask a guy to move on at the beginning of the season. However, Hamhuis was going to be a free agent at the end of the season and the media kept asking about his status as a trade deadline candidate from Christmas on. Hamhuis even went public to tell the Canucks that he wanted t...

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

Agree with you Blob about the Hamhuis fiasco. I like a lot of things that Benning has done; but, he botched trading Hamhuis by not having earlier discussions with him about the possibility of a trade. This whole thing about not having discussions with guys about the possibility of waiving their NTC ...

Goldobin gets back in it sounds like. Because Brian Burke texted Green and asked him, LOL https://twitter.com/DhaliwalSports/stat ... 8395337728 Hey Mick, Travis Green stated last year that his mom likes Goldobin and hassled him about sitting him before. So there may be more forces working to get Go...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Hank, interesting comparison between Leipsic and Raymond. I had reached a similar conclusion. Both were players who consistently tried to do too much with the puck usually resulting in a turnover rather than the simple pass to their open player. I liked the addition of Leipsic originally as I hoped ...

I am also glad to see Boucher given a chance. If they want to see what they have, they should really give him a chance with some effective line mates so I would be happy to see EP, Goldy and Boucher. Thanks for circulating that article Micky

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

I am surprised about some of the negative comments about Tryamkin. I agree that he arrived to the Canucks out of shape. I think the biggest problem was that the coaching staff wanted him to be something (Chris Pronger) that he wasn't which is why I think he went back to Russia. He is a big guy with ...

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

Edler and Tanev are not the problems on the Canucks defence. I would love to trade Edler (or Tanev) at the trade deadline for a premium; however, if that is not possible and Edler badly wants to stay then Plan B (in my mind) would be to sign him at a discount. Use Del Zottos money and whatever else ...

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

I always thought that Linden and Benning wanted to do a long rebuild but had directions from the Aqualinis that it was to be a short one. Remember how touchy Linden and Benning were early on when reporters mentioned the Canucks needed to do a "rebuild" and they would say it was a quick retooling but...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Per, thanks for posting the interview and taking the time to translate it for us. I think this is the second or third interview I have seen from Dahlen and he seems to be well spoken for a young kid. Might have a bit of Bieksa's gift for giving interviews from the heart. I am looking forward to the ...

Re: What to do with Hughes

I am on the fence on this one. I have no problem with Hughes making rookie mistakes. My only concern with him playing at the NHL level is whether he has fully grown yet and whether his body has matured enough and can take the punishment. I recall Nugent-Hopkins being rushed and getting lots of early...

Re: Free Agency 2018 & Everything Related

Hey HW, my initial thought about the de Haan signing is that Canes seemed to give a lot of term for a guy missing a lot of the last season with a shoulder injury. 4 years at 4.55 million. Adds nice depth to the Canes defence if the shoulder is ok. In terms of the Canucks, Hughes and Juelevi play on ...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

In terms of current Centre depth, we also have Sutter and Granlund which would allow the Canucks to start Pettersson at wing. I think that Strangelove's list looks to the future if things work out. So, if Pettersson adapts well and is good to go at Centre then in a couple of years it could be: Horva...
