Next season, we re-up Edler on a 1 year (if he wants) for about 3 million. Stetch gets offered about 2. (They don’t sign, they walk) Then our 4, 5, and 6 guys (6-8 guys are 1 or less) are making about 6 to 6.5 million total. Right in line.
Edler has one year left at $6M and personally I'm done with Stecher...
All in favour of letting Tanev and Stecher go and replace them with Alex Pietrangelo?

You’re still about 4 million short. Can’t do it.
Meh, just gotta dump a few contracts...

Thanks Mick, just because we're hardcore Canuck fans who have been on the internet for decades

I think that’s easier said than done. Could be quite costly pick or prospect/player wise to make a few of these bad contracts disappear

I hated to see Bobby Schmautz leave. That trade made us a worse hockey team.

If anyone missed Gord Miller's tweet about some Canucks fans owing Jim Benning an apology after game 2 the reaction was great fun

Just keep doing what they’re doing. That’s a good young team that is only going to get better. I think some Canucks fans owe Jim Benning an apology.

Miller - Petey - Virtanen

reminds me of how Bowman put Shanny - Stevie and McCarty.

size & girth around your star center.

LOL, these "fans" don't like the taste of crow. Instead of enjoying this team, they're like... "but, but, but, next year the cap... blah blah blah".

Good ol' JD Burke still trying to spin his narrative. If you can't admit you're wrong dude, go spread your negative bullshit by cheering for another team. What a fucking wanker.
Try to focus on THIS year...

I think Jake has way more talent than MaCarty ever did though, but McCarty had more grit. Jake looks way better there than Brockstar. I noticed that when Greener needed some goals, he went with this line and it delivered; However, when he got the lead, he put Brock back there. :scowl:

I didn't get a chance to watch games 3+4, so I was surprised with so much Jake h8 (on this board and on TSN 1040). Nice to see a Team 1040 guy take back his words (Jason Brough).

https://canucksarmy.com/2020/08/19/canu ... 7tqRrMCt2w

I watched Jake carefully today and he looked fine. Sure, I'd like to see more physicality, hustle and emotion, but he didn't take any dumb penalties and he was paying good attention in our zone. Jake delivered when he got a chance to play with our top dawgs and the goal he scored was sweet (a goal scorer's goal). To hit the top corner like that from that angle or bank it off the goalie? Filthy. I don't think Brock star can make that shot right now.

For the next game, I'd rather put Brock with the plumbers. He either can't shoot like he once did (injury) or he has zero confidence in it; he also takes forever to get it off, which makes it easy for a D-man to block or get a stick in the way.

Sound like Toffoli is close. Plz put Brock with our plumbers (Sutter or Beags-Dawg), doesn't matter who. :P

Take it easy Todd. Brock played fine. Several good chances and was skating better. Who cares where anyone plays now, lets have scoring all over the line-up. The more we can roll four lines, the farther we go.
If we get Edler, Myers and Toffoli back, we're set.

We need to win Friday, just to get the extra day, perhaps 2, off. We are getting banged up, and could use some of the boys to get healthy.

It would be nice to go into the next round with Myers, Toffoli, and Edler all back.
