Re: The 'Sisters' aren't worth the price

I think the Kings would be one team that could sign the twins and they're also a team that would fit them as well. They have the cap space, they're on the west coast, they have a young team with potential. They'd make a great story for selling tickets and almost complete a line. They could make bet...

Re: WHO should the Canucks get with their freed-up cap space?

I don't mind clearing out some youth to pick up a couple of rentals. In fact, if we're healthy at the deadline, I'd be pissed at Gillis if he didn't make some moves. Gillis has proved that he's aggressive in getting what he wants. I'd be shocked if he didnt make some move at the deadline. He's no N...

Re: Canucks @ Edmonton - 7pm SNet - Sundin!

He looks calm and collected so far. Not panicking, making rushed plays or gripping the stick too hard.

Is this speculation? Where has this been reported? It had been reported last november or early december, can't find the link anymore, but read it for sure. Say it was a reported speculation..

Re: Hodgson score in the Gold Medal game!

I don't think anyone expected Schneider to waltz in and make Luongo redundant this year, or ever. My theory, at least, was that for the coming season(s) he might be a viable alternative if Luongo is impossible to sign, thus freeing us up to deal Luongo if push comes to shove. Actually nothing has c...

Re: Hansen, Schneider, Brown, Sanford and Sundin

the fact that about a third of the league are paying people to come out to games, Mozy. They could fix that by getting rid of franchises like TB or FLA, even Phoenix. Throw a team in Seattle, bring back the Nordiques, re-create the Jets and even throw a team in Saskatchewan or somewhere else in cen...

Re: Hodgson score in the Gold Medal game!

Remember that more than a few people thought Schneider would waltz into Vancouver and take the starters job from Sanford, and then make Louie redundant. It turns out that reality and expectations are usually not the same thing. Hopefully Schneider has learned he needs to work on some things and he ...

Re: Sundin to play against Edm on Wed. - Link

If he can get rolling with Wellwood I think he'll do fine. The problems will start if AV starts juggling him around in his first game. He needs a chance to play with one or two players consistently and get some sort of chemistry going before AV starts panicking and before the fans start panicking. T...

Re: Hansen, Schneider, Brown, Sanford and Sundin

remember the cap is coming down in 2010-11.
Is this speculation? Where has this been reported? You mean this isn't going to be like the NFL where they raise the cap every year until it's so high it might as well not even be there?

Re: Hansen, Schneider, Brown, Sanford and Sundin

Burrows is a fan favourite. It would be sad to see him go. I agree their job is to shut down the top line, but they can't get into such long slumps. Not all of them at once. Thats my point though. I'm hoping one of these game they break out with 2 or 3 points each and that kick starts something good...

Re: Quinn for Coach ?

Gillis seems to know how to get players with specific attributes that help the team's specific needs. I say *seems* as its only half a season, i'm just saying I like what I see so far. I'll agree with you there. My biggest problem with bringing him in was he was an agent with no experience. Either ...

Re: Hansen, Schneider, Brown, Sanford and Sundin

The Hansen/Jaffray debate is interesting, but as I see it, Hansen is an NHLer and Jaffray is not. I think what you guys are overlooking is that it's not just Hansen thats been struggling. I could understand if he was the only one not pulling his weight that he gets dumped down as a wake up call, bu...

Re: Hodgson score in the Gold Medal game!

Stamkos didn't look nearly as good as Hodgson. I agree he's a little small, but if he puts on a bit of weight then he'll transform just like the Sisters did.
