Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

The controversy over Luongo is completely fan and media driven. Internally, there really isn't a controversy. Like its been said, Schneider is hot, the Canucks are in need of going on a prolonged roll and Luongo is coming of an injury. But as long as the fans and media keep fueling this fire, it wo...

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts + Various Rumours

Of course all of this depends upon the extent of Edler's injury does it not?

Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

Added to that Luongo is not 100% recovered from his mystery injury. He is good enough to go and in the past would have been back in the net sooner. But every day he gets to rest is another day he gets to heal closer to 100%. Historically he was always returned to the net when he declared himself rea...

Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

I suppose Gillis could always just tender a low-ball minimum qualifying offer to Schneider to start with to keep other GM's at bay while he negotiates with Schneid's and his agent to hammer out a real contract. Doesn't sound like you actually know how offer sheets work.... I guess not, the only thi...

Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

Can't Vancouver file for arbitration with Cory? That at least would prevent an offer sheet and allow them to negotiate. Risky I suppose but if the Canucks file for arbitration and seek a two year contract that takes them to the 5 year window for Luongo to ask for a trade. Doable? I think at some lev...

Re: GDT: Nov 23: Canucks @ Colorado - 6:30pm - SPac

[/quote]Exactly. Like I suggested, Gillis isn't going to move Schneider unless its for a deal he couldn't possibly refuse. I do believe Schneider will be moved, either via trade in the off-season, or allowed to walk after signing an offer sheet (offer pending return/cap hit of course). Having said t...

Re: GDT: Nov 26: Canucks @ Fin Soup - 7PM - CBC!

This is a great move by AV. Lets see what Ginger really is made of. If he is the real deal starter type then he should have no problem with back to backs. He is on a roll and playing very good hockey right now but no one is under any illusions that Luongo will lose the starters job. As long as Ginge...

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts + Various Rumours

To be totally honest, I am more surprised that Booths hunting ways are not more of an issue on the left coast. When Booth talked about his grizzly bear hunt on CBC I cringed thinking that he was alienating a big chunk of Vancouver's tree hugging, eco friendly, free range, organic, veganauts. Yes, I...

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts + Various Rumours

I suppose that the fear is how an overly, outspoken Christian can contaminate a dressing room. And it can happen. The difference here is that I am sure MG (sure as in I know) checked and double checked to make sure that neither Hamhuis nor Booth would be that negative influence due to their beliefs....

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts + Various Rumours

To me the biggest endorsement of the character of Booth and his influence in a dressing room was Kesler. He was asked before the deal went down and he gave Booth straight A's. He has known Booth since they were in their teens and I am sure that if Booth's beliefs were a problem he would have let it ...

Re: GDT: Nov 25 Canucks @ Coyotes

Ginger making a case for goalie of the future NOW. Hodgson quietly getting more points Kesler/Higgins/Booth looking like the line we wanted/needed/hoped for/expected/prayed for/ INSERT Ballard solid except for one glaring bone head giveaway. I was surprised he wasn't benched for the rest of the game...

Re: Hmmm... it's early, but 39-24...?

Here is something to cheer everyone up. We have played 20 games thus far in the season and are only 6 points out of first place overall in the NHL. Somehow it doesn't seem so bad now.

Re: 11/12 Injury Thread

Cody had some good games as third line centre. If he has Hansen and Higgins on his wing I can't see him failing in that spot. In fact I think it will be a pretty good defensive line as well as contribute offensively. And what is wrong with having Lappy 4th line centre with Maholtra and one of Weiss ...
