But, I was wrong about Bo's offensive output too.
I agree and he can kill penalties too. Exactly the type of top 6 forward they need to add.

Re: Trade Rumours & Armchair Pipe Dreams 20-21 Sponsored by SKYO

There’s no reason to give the player all the leverage. Three year bridges or eight year contracts makes far and away the most sense. You sign them to 4 or 5 year deals, maybe they only make the post season twice in that time. This team is still riddled with holes. They are a long way away from Chic...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Did Gomer not watch the last game? Motte was tried on the first line and it was even worst than it was with Jake. The issue is that Hamonic is horrible and affecting the play of Hughes, which affects him getting the puck to Petey and Brock... Motte actually should never even be a measuring stick fo...

Re: Trade Rumours & Armchair Pipe Dreams 20-21 Sponsored by SKYO

Horvat or Miller for Dubois? 8-) Would ya? Maybe but if Pettersson wants $10,000,000 per year would you consider him and Virtanen for Dubois, Domi, and a 1st if they could find a way to make the dollars work this year? No Pettersson is much more of a game changer than Dubois. Petey can snipe goals ...

Re: Canucks Training Camp 2021

Lol Benn is not 10 on the depth chart. He’s 7 at worst depending on how Juolevi and Hamonic perform. Benn is gone as a UFA at the end of the year. If Rathbone is available he definitely plays ahead of Benn on the left side. It’s a toss up between Benn, Chatfield and Rafferty on the right side. But ...

Re: Canucks Training Camp 2021

So I've seen a couple guys covering camp mention Boeser's been the best player and has even picked up a step in his skating. The 6-40-9 line is shaping up to be one of the best in the NHL and if Hoglander can make it happen with Horvat as the season starts, that provides a lot of cover for the first...

Re: Canucks Training Camp 2021

Just saw a Kuzma comment that to him Boeser has been the most consistent forward all week and that his skating has been one of the things that stood out. Also saw clips earlier of him blasting the puck. Imagine getting rookie level Boeser back skating well and firing away with Pettersson and Miller?...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

The Flames are very happy with Andersson. 8-) I bet theyre also pretty happy we gifted them turtle-rat As they should be, he's an excellent player and that was a heist and Benning's worst trade considering the end result and the fact it was the Flames on the winning end of it. Another unfortunate r...

Forsling on waivers today...I guess that mistake can be stricken from the record Oh and J. Bracco :lol: Wasnt he going to bring toilet a cup? And Roland McKeown the 2nd rounder the Kings selected with the Vey pick was waived by the Canes in December. Too bad about Rasmus Andersson but at least they...

Re: Canucks Training Camp 2021

So if Hoglander is ready already, does Virtanen get mailed out? Hoglander has 4 goals in 23 games in the SHL. He plays on that teams third line, yet he’s a lock to play 2nd line minutes here. Keep in mind he may look a bit sharper since he’s been playing games for months. Hoglander obviously wasnt ...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Benning should get way more credit than he has for his off season. Absolutely. We've had front row seats for the evolution of Jimmy into a competent GM. I know there are those on here (ahem!) that will defend all of his early moves but i thimk what we have today foor our GM is due a remarkable tran...
