The Bubbles Hargraves and Chef Dud review every GM move thread

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

The idea is to hoard picks during a rebuild
Can you further elaborate on this? It's a quite difficult concept to comprehend. :lol:
Lol....some of the infants just don’t quite get it.

None is needed. Smart teams rebuild through the draft... always have and always will.

More picks = more chances to draft good players = a better team and a deeper team. There’s your math.

^ Interesting!

So years later one could say...I took a few minor liberties for clarity’s sake
:lol: you sure did!

Of all the players and assets listed, the organization came out with Sutter, Pearson and Lockwood. For a "rebuilding" team, that's awful.

why, show the math
It’s called common sense. No math is needed.
It's called a false premise.
False premise: Downgrading picks doesn't matter.

Vincibility lies in the enemy.

No, it does require math. Please show me the odds of a 3rd round pick making an impact in the NHL.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
