Re: GDT: Canucks @ oiler - 7pm- SN-P -Oct 2

A lot of the game just seemed like lines and players were out of sync. A lot of missed passes, passes in skates, guys not reading off each other well. Most of this should be improved after a few more games and some practice. As others have noted, with the substantial turnover it will take some time ...

Re: GDT: Canucks @ oiler - 7pm- SN-P -Oct 2

Myers from Hughes and Miller. Oh yeah, the new guys. Two of whom Canuck fans were whining about. The D is hella better and true top 6 forwards are just that... not a bunch of tweeners with Audi leases. One game is a tad early to claim validation or invalidation of the summer moves.... It's really n...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Moving on from Baertschi is good news. It reflects depth. Is it? Does it? Would it not be better to have him on the third line rather than those who currently are filling that position? Despite all the talk about how great our bottom six guys are defensively, those bottom six had the worst goal dif...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Yeah, like Eriksson, Motte and Sutter. That's jam if you've ever seen it. The hell does that have to do with Schaller? We couldn't keep Baertschi cause we needed Schaller's jam. [I realize you didn't directly state this, but I suspect it was part of Green's reasoning.] Hence, I was just pointing ou...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Sven does not fit the '3rd line - top 9' forward profile on ANY team. Any media or frothing fans that think so simply don't understand that. Ignorance is bliss, so they should carry on. The counter-argument is that this type of thinking puts too much emphasis upon where the game was 5-10 years ago ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Those teams could skate too Skyo but your defence of Tom Schaller is cute :o Hate to break it to you hargraves, but you can't win championships full of just speedy fast Sandersons in your lineup, ya need some jam in your lineup as well. Yeah, like Eriksson, Motte and Sutter. That's jam if you've ev...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Brutally/beautifully honest way to think about it. :thumbs: So what is the "brutally/beautifully honest" way to think about keeping scrubs Eriksson and Schaller? Better to have useless spare parts than useful (possibly broken) parts? To be clear, I am alright with Goldy on waivers - he didn't show ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Schenn would be welcome back in Van I'd say. He played some solid minutes for us Yup he showed a lot of pushback in the time he was here - which no one else seems to exhibit (wasn't that supposed to be a large part of the Schaller signing). Baertschi - 23 goals last 79 games Air Thief - 11 goals la...

I don't love the message it sends to the players: "if you appear to be on the way down or out due to injuries sustained while playing for us, we will dump you".
Agree. We'd rather keep air thieves on the roster than those who work hard but who have injury issues.

Protecting bums and waiving goal scorers. WTF.
Sadly, I can think of 6,000,000 reasons why Loui is still on the roster... :/
But cap space and dollars don't matter in a rebuild......

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

One-hit to retirement notwithstanding... Baertschi looked good with Gaudette and would probably do well on the 3rd line. I assume he's being waived because he frees up more cap than Schaller. SB provides more cap only if he is claimed. So the logic is either the team wants him to be claimed (and ge...
