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...

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...

Hopefully this means there is an on ice answer to a Petey attack and that answer isn’t Boeser!
It'll certainly be enough to instigate an attack on Petey....

https://www.tsn.ca/vancouver-canucks-sign-forward-micheal-ferland-to-four-year-14-million-deal-1.1335610 Good job Jim Yep it's a nice signing at those numbers - again a year too long but that's to be expected in FA. At least Bo has a winger to play with and the team should be better with Ferland in...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

If we could somehow clear Eriksson' 3 yr contract, that would really help alleviate the Luongo 3 yr recapture. (yes obvious, just sayin eheh) Eriksson + Woo might do it. Maybe Eriksson + Demko. They might have to throw another 2nd in with each of those guys. I think they might be better off to cut ...

Re: How did Jimmy do

I was actually worried Benn was going to get $3M per. $2M isn't bad, although I'm not sure how $2M for Benn is much better than $700K for Schenn..... There are a few here who think Benn is a special player cause of his last name. This is exceptionally rich coming from the guy who defends the player...

Re: How did Jimmy do

Gave him a B+. He didn't bend over for Myers, but I don't think we'll enjoy that contract in a couple years. The Benn deal is solid. Apparently Bergevin offered him the same deal in April; Benn wanted to come home. An upgrade over Hutton. The goalies should be happy. No Eriksson-level stupidity here...
