Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

So apparently the Sun and the Province have had to issue an apology to Subban after a photo was published to their websites describing him as the 'dark guy in the middle.' I really hope heads roll. I really really hope it's Gallagher that goes (not that he had anything to do with it.... just sayin ;...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

lmao @ pauser. I guess its a bit different for you here seeing as you can't run and hide behind the mods. I"m not running behind anyone. All I'm saying is that the Sedins contracts are amongst the worst in the league, and definitely amongst the worst amongst Canadian teams. Saying it doesn't make i...

Re: Diluting the Talent Pool...Again

I'll just leave this here...

AN NHL TEAM IN TORONTO COULD BE YOURS FOR - $1.2 BILLION?

I'm sure that MLSE wouldn't mind. They'd get the lions share of that expansion money in addition to their parent company owning the broadcasting rights in Canada.

Re: Diluting the Talent Pool...Again

The figures I've been reading indicate that $1.2 billion would be the fee for a new Toronto based organization all by itself.

Re: Diluting the Talent Pool...Again

For the record, the new owners of the Panthers should be given the time to make a run here. Keep in mind the team's dismal record under the previous ownership/management group doesn't exactly translate into butts in seats. When the Panthers made a run and made the playoffs, there was a ton of inter...

Re: 2014 UFA Offseason

I'm surprised we're 6 pages in and nobody seems interested in Devin Setoguchi who (at 27) is an available UFA. I know he struggled in the 'Peg last season, but he might be worth a look. Because of his struggles, the contract might be on the reasonable side... No surprise here, he is not a Benning/L...

Re: Kesler traded to Anaheim!

Giving them Kesler for 2 questionable players is one thing, but not getting that 10th is what really stings. That would have made this easier for fans to accept. Instead the only rationale is 'at least it didn't drag on.' I agree the 10th would have been a lot easier to take but I'm willing to acce...

Re: Kesler traded to Anaheim!

How the fuck does Anaheim keep the 10th overall and get Kesler. Because (as has been pointed out) that Kesler's list of teams he was willing to be traded to was basically 2 teams thus hamstringing any leverage Benning might have had. Pretty simple really. It's why I'm not super disappointed. There'...

Re: Kesler has requested a trade

Personally, I think if a player that has a NTC approaches the club to demand a trade, he should give a list of up to 10 teams (max) that he won't go to. The thought being that if he is demanding a trade after negotiating a NTC (seemingly because they want to stay with that team through the contact l...

Re: And So The Axe Falls

I'd totally be okay with Nicholson. Likewise, much more so than Linden. Although rumours say Linden may be hired in some capacity as well. I think I might be okay with Linden as team President and Nicholson as GM. What about Gilman? Anyone comfortable with him being promoted? Or would it be more of...
