Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

Nice quote but I didn't say don't spend money, I said don't rush to spend it, and ya! I think I know the fans need something. People should take the time to read posts instead of speed scanning them and then maybe they would pick-up the gist of them and corrections like these would be unnecessary ;...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

It amazes me how when you put a little money in peoples hands, all they want to do is spend it on WTF ever is out there. Why not keep it and wait ? A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Particularly when you have a pretty damn dismal record of .. snatching birds .. like say Scott Niedermayer...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

I don't think Benning has joined the frenzy as you call it. Year one Vrbata, who most agreed was one of the best FA signings that year, both for cap and term, and Miller who stabilized the net but has been a polarizing signing. Year two, Bartkowski, Cracknell, Weber, did I miss anyone? I don't thin...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Chill rock^ You act like we got a mad center depth when clearly we don't, our center depth got so demolished with injuries and rookies we had Linden Vey getting top minutes. We need Granlund signed and it's pocket change he's getting for a couple years, he's got the skills, got training/experience,...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

Putting Eriksson with the Sedins is the worst thing you could do. They will be line-matched to death, as has been the case for years. Torts couldn't handle it and WD is having trouble with it too, you can see it. Sloppy changes, trying to counter act what the other coach is doing, etc. I'm not stupi...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

micky it's a transition. Don't get hung up on labelling the lines 1, 2, or 3. WD wants to roll four lines. We already saw last season numerous occasions where he didn't put the twins out in O zone draws. As WD's confidence in players grows, more so defensive confidence, their ice time will increase...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

The reason I don't like the idea of acquiring an Eriksson for the Sedins is that will automatically, again, deem them as our #1 line. This means another year of 29 other coaches putting their most effective players against them. If we are going to transition, we need to start moving away from that....

Re: E2016 Playoffs Round One

I am happy I am not a betting guy. Last night with the Blues up 2 zip I wanted to phone and get odds on the Hawks winning the game. Fortunately the Blues held out but until the final buzzer i had no faith in their ability to close it out. Wow. I did not realize how good I think the Hawks are. I kno...

I think I might be willing to go with him as a replacement for Sbisa.
Bit of a gamble :?:

Re: Canucks sign Thatcher Demko

Everybody likes odds so how about this: Odds are, Thatcher Demko will become the #1 man in Utica this coming year. Odds are, Either Miller or Markstom will suffer some type of injury this coming year. Odds are, Guess who might get a look at the N.H.L. this coming year. Odds are, we win the cup. (may...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

As usual, a good, well thought out response. I think we will be in the race again next year and I expect to see no less than 15 more points, maybe more. The reason I don't like the idea of acquiring an Eriksson for the Sedins is that will automatically, again, deem them as our #1 line. This means an...
