Re: Canucks Contracts

There are no top pairing RH D men out there on the UFA market other than Alex Pietrangelo. At this point in their careers Tanev and Edler are probably # 4 guys. Kinda like Tyler Myers. Problem is we don’t have a legit 2/3 guy to drop in between Quinn Hughes and Edler/Tanev/Myers. The latter three n...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Death rate is at roughly 2%, a "normal" flu is usually 0.2-1.0%, so yes, it is somewhat deadlier W.H.O. says the Coronavirus death rate is 3.4% and the seasonal flu death rate is 0.1% https://www.sciencealert.com/covid-19-s-death-rate-is-higher-than-thought-but-it-should-drop So yeah, not "somewhat...

Re-sign Markstrom (without an NMC). 15 months from now decide which one of Marx/Demko you want to protect. We're going to lose an asset in the X-draft, if they choose the goalie we don't protect, fine. Exactly right, we’re gonna lose somebody, no point in doing something stupid like Florida, if the...

. Take a look at how a local sports writer created quite a stir today....LE nixed a trade? https://twitter.com/risingaction/status/1235253327035682816 I think Louie for lucic was a done deal if Louie wanted it. That’s why ferland was added so late. I personally would have loved having lucic this ye...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Judd Brackett is next on Benning's hitman list to sign. Under Gillis he was a scout, under Benning he was promoted to Director of Amateur Scouting. Now Benning might have to promote him once again, moving up the ladder to become an Assistant General Manager: Where he'll oversee the Canucks' amateur...

Pgcanuck, I’m liking your hf posting lately. Did you know the toffoli trade is the worst trade the Canucks have done in the last 10 years?

Supposedly lucic was considering retiring earlier this year in Calgary, I think both him and Louie hang them up this offseason.

Brisebios is a decent prospect. Devils I imagine would be all over this
I think brisebois could have played this year instead of benn, and fantanberg.

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

Gaudette's name is bouncing around. Hopefully the only truth to this is, teams have been calling for Gaudette but Benning has been hanging up. Makes no sense since we moved Madden as well. https://twitter.com/risingaction/status/1230217985798758400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm...

I think a Simmonds deal will involve baertschi as well.

Re: Canucks add Toffoli (Schaller, Madden, 2nd, cond 4th)

And we kept our top two prospects: 1) Podz 2) Hogs + Lind, 6'3 LW Aidan McDonough, DiPietro Additionally we kept all our dmen prospects: Rathbone, OJ, Woo, Rafferty. Will the list remain the same after next week? We definitely have an abundance and therefore I was prepared to see a prospect or two ...

Watching the Avs-Bolts right now and i have to say it....if I'm picked one or the other I'm taking Makar over Hughes for the Calder.

Dont get me wrong, Hughes is one helluva player but I think CM has the edge
Well your Canucks had him number 1 on their draft rankings with petey number 2

Re: Canucks add Toffoli (Schaller, Madden, 2nd, cond 4th)

We’re finally filling that age gap that eye bags left us. I’m assuming this is tongue in cheek. Miller, Myers, Pearson, Horvat, Stecher, Markstrom, Is more than enough age gap filler. There’s vets like Benn, Beagle, Sutter, Roussel, Edler and Tanev here. Age gap isn’t a thing. Nice spin though. The...

Re: Canucks add Toffoli (Schaller, Madden, 2nd, cond 4th)

To me Toffoli isn't going to be a rental. I think he wants him here with Bo. No doubt Jim wants him longer term and will do everything in his power to make that happen. The conditional pick says it and I don't think you risk all those future assets for a 2-4 month rental, especially on such a young...

Re: Canucks add Toffoli (Schaller, Madden, 2nd, cond 4th)

This is an awesome pickup, I’ve been pushing for this since we got Pearson. Top 6 sniper in his prime, buddies with Pearson and supposedly an awesome guy in the room. Now just need Louie to retire so we can re sign toffoli for 5-6 million and we got a great 2nd line. We also now have 3(?) cup winne...
