Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

That’s a horrible deal for Calgary. As a Canucks fan, this is great. We avoid Lucic (even if we have to keep Loui, he’s a better player), and the Flames get slower and shittier.

Neal actually could rebound nicely in Edmonton, but Lucic is done as an effective NHL player.

Re: Offseason grades & Load Management

Edler, Tanev and now Roussel would be best served with load management - not playing in back to back games & other special circumstances those 3 games in 4 nights type of scenarios - or whatever ridiculous scheduling. I think it depends greatly on what injury you're trying to prevent/deal with. Leo...

Re: Offseason grades so far

I'm just spit-balling here, but I'm of the opinion that Tanev should still return a 2nd rounder and a prospect at this point. The idea was to add depth, trading Tanev now doesn't make sense, particularly as Myers isn't the same type of player and Benn can't handle those kind of minutes. As for next...

Athletic has an amazing article about contract efficiency of every player. Toronto was ranked #3 best with A-. LOL
Where will they be ranked with Matthews-Marner-Tavares @ 41% of the team cap?

I’m watching Moneyball drinking cranberry, soda and vodka.
So you ran out of real booze? It’s a true sign of desperation when you’ve gotta resort to swiping the wife’s drinks.

Re: Let's get creative with Erikkson...

Tough to find a worse value than Bobby Ryan.. but Eriksson fits the bill. Bobby's a legit 2nd liner here.

Canucks would make out like bandits in that deal. Sold!!

Re: 2019 offseason

I don’t think Goldobin clears waivers. If we sign him it will be on the cheap and his occasional offensive flashes will make him an enticing reclamation project for someone. If he doesn’t fit on the team in Benning, or Green’s eyes, I’d rather they move him for something. I don't think there would ...

Re: 2019/20 Pacific Division

The Canucks are fortunate. This is a weak division. It was a weak division last year. And I don't think any team got clearly better this offseason other than the Canucks. An excellent post, as usual, UW. I think it boils down to this. Benning has added the pieces he needed to, he's done his job. IM...
