How does the draft lottery work if we only play 35 games and pro rate the rest ?

Somebody gonna get their shit in a knot ? Especially if we actually won the lottery

Not that would ever happen under Bettman

I bought that package fir the first time last summer to catch the playoffs, what a sad sack outfit.

No production value at all. Not for the money anyway

So we're at 6 'postponed' games so far, and I only see 3 spots where they could stick games (the rest would have to be after our last scheduled game on May 8th). The last league games are scheduled for May 11. That would give us 2 more spots. So 'in theory', if they don't cancel any more games, we could get the season done and only add one day to the schedule. No more than 1 day off between and 2 games, lots of 3 in 4 days & back to backs.

Sounds like a great situation for the players to be in coming off of Covid. :roll:

So yeah, I guess it's possible, but the games are going to painful to watch, and the draft thread here will get quite popular.

The problem too of course is that there is no covid cap relief so the Canucks may not be able to recall enough bodies. If the NHL wants it can set a return to play date and we will see if the Canucks have enough bodies or if they have to default in games.

I can see some players saying a big F U to the league, especially since we would be playing meaningless games to us. And I hope that is what happens. The players will not be in game shape, they may still be suffering from lingering after affects from covid, and certainly I think they may lack desire at this point. All of that is a recipe for injury.

If we do play, and assuming Loiue was not one of the taxi squad players, then I suppose the remaining games will have value to him as I am sure he would love a trade out of Vancouver and the only way that has potential to happen is if he shows he can still play. So maybe a player like that could benefit from a return and hope the summer brings suiters.

And of course the PA may enter this debate and not agree to any return to play for the Canucks.
I'm hoping the PA steps in and nixes the remainder of the Canucks schedule. It's just cruelty to order the Canucks back to play after all of this. Let's hope the league comes to it's senses.
Agree, but it is all about the money to the league, always has been always will. I would be surprised to if the PA does not try to intervene though.
On this occasion, I don't think the PA would attempt to intervene. Been a long arduous trek and maybe everyone wants to see it completed.

Asinine. Just when you thought there was light at the end of the tunnel. Elmer throws a barrel of glue and fecal matter in your way.


WHY!!!!????

Sell the team you slimy DAGO. And hopefully the new guy gets a real GM. Jim is a scout.... that’s it. He couldn’t manage a two car parade.

Thought they'd resign him but not near that much. Must not be very confident in the ability to sign others that would be better in that price range.
He had a very good 19/20 season but has been deplorable this year. Too much.

Shocked that Doc, Chef, Topper, ESQ, SKYO and the other ball washers aren’t here telling everyone what a great signing this is.

Thomas Drance @ThomasDrance
Tanner Pearson deal is at $3.25 million over 3 years.

It's backloaded, and includes some signing bonus in the third year.

There's no formal expansion protection. Full NTC in year 1, m-NTC (7 teams) in year 2 and no trade protection whatsoever in year three.

LOL it's totally fine Blob, just take it easy!

He took a half-mil pay cut, and he's paid like a 30-point forward.

He can’t skate. Full stop. He moves like Craig Coxe. So after seven years we still don’t have any young guys to come in and steal this slug’s job?

I don’t give a shit what pay cut he took. He’s a 4th line player on a good team that should be paid under 2 million. Not shocking you love the move. You’ve been in lockstep with everything they’ve done.
