Re: Willy D death watch...

October may:
[1] seal Willie's fate;
[2] produce roster changes that determine where some Canucks/Comets players spend the rest of the year.

Will the drama be more entertaining than the quality of hockey?

Are reports of Willie's demise overblown BS?

Time will tell.

Re: Time for a prediction thread

You've got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky ?

Re: 2016 Training camp

^^
Benning may try to sneak another through waivers, or come to a compromise with Tryamkin, or trade, or .... injure someone. :look:

That's why ...

it's complicated.

Stecher & Gaunce are showing promise, so far.

Re: GDT: Pre-season - 9/28/16 - Oilers @ Canucks 7pm SN1

Looks like the forwards & goalies are:

Skille-Zalewski-Rodin
Etem-Granlund-Dorsett
Carcone-Megna-Burrows
Labate-Sutter-D'Aoust

Miller/Demko

It's going to be interesting to see how well the newcomers (& Sutter) do compared to the guys from last year's roster.

Re: 2016 Training camp

Kuzma tweet on Tryamkin, Sept 20:
Been skating here for weeks. Looks fitter, faster. Slotted as No.7. English still a challenge.

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 16-17 Sponsored by SKYO

^^ Benning traded four second round picks. Two were given up for Baertschi & Vey. Two were recieved in the Bieksa & Garrison trades. Player for player trades are a different process, based on more complete info. It still doesn't excuse him from hemorhaging draft picks and good prospects for waiver ...

Perspective doesn't permit cherry picking facts.
Absent from your discussion of trading second round picks was the 2nd for Baertschi.

The jury is still out on Benning.

Jim didn't have the balls to come out & say - "We don't need no stinkin CREAM PUFFS!"

The politically correct police are a worry these days.
