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

Mostly I think. The Beagle and Roussel signings kinda stink. Ferland was bad luck, but for the most part Elmer has done a lot of good things since the calendar moved into 2017. But you have to admit that summer of 2016 was about as ugly as Rosie O’Donnell in a thong sitting on Gomer’s face . Not th...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Virtanen's deal is pretty fair for both parties. If Benning can sign a decent veteran RHD on a short term deal I'd say he's had a very good off season. Assuming LTIR for Ferland, a safe bet at this stage, there could still be room to squeeze in a Leivo and a Fantenburg, or their equivalent. I would...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Virtanen's deal is pretty fair for both parties. If Benning can sign a decent veteran RHD on a short term deal I'd say he's had a very good off season. Even a decent LHD. Shift Benn over to the right side. Maybe Brogan Pilisken can actually play. You definitely don’t want to see two of Olli, Raffer...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Nuke LaLoosh is a classic character. Tim Robbins nailed that part :lol: ‘Women get Woolly’ :lol: Someone needs to be Crash Davis here and smack the kid multiple times. JT Miller seems about right for the role. I wouldn't doubt Virts has a Blaupunkt but what he really needs is a mean streak. Miller ...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Let’s be clear - Virtanen enjoys fighting as much as Trevor Linden did. Not gonna happen Pretty much. That’s why I laugh at the constant Cam Neely comparisons. Hell I’d settle for Virtanen becoming another Dustin Brown which with his physical gifts shouldn’t be that much to ask. The problem is Jake...

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

I think with the expansion draft looming, one of those 3 will get taken. I’d rather see 28 million allocated to our top 4 then have it sit with Louie, sutter, beagle, roussel on the bottom 6 (all of which will be replaced with elc’s and hawrlyuck type guys within the next 2 years). I really like oe...

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

Any thoughts on the Ericsson / Hoffman rumours (from EK :oops: ) Hoffman waiting for Benning to clear cap so he can sign. Benning offering Ericsson and next year's 1st for, well, nothing.... I believe Benning said no way he would offer a high draft pick to sell players, and the source is suspect, b...

I thought he set down roots here after marrying Steve Nash's sister and all. Too bad.
