Stetcher is at best a mini pizza/pizza pop to be traded for a granola bar or a juice box with or without a straw
Stecher is one of those frozen, cauliflower crust abominations. It looks like a pizza, but it really isn't.
That's hard. A least a no-name brand pizza or some shit. Someone has to play 3rd pair/warm the press box waiting for injury.

Benning’s busy qualifying RFAs. Trades or UFA signings, you best check back Friday.
We are all Jim Benning.

Alright. I'll upgrade him to Fresh Slice. Better than frozen, but that shit is still pretty bad in my books.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Getting word now that #Bruins are officially out on OEL. Price is to high for their liking when they can just simply resign Krug. #Canucks now the lone team for #Yotes to make a deal with. Price should come down for Van now.

Imagine if the deal falls through because Loui refuses to wave his NTC - he was hated before here in Van......................

Absolutely. Vancouver #Canucks want picks so I've just got a hunch on this. Sounds like Jake Virtanen could be on his way to Beantown. There were rumors a couple weeks back that they were very interested in him.
Jake to Bahston eh. Interesting

Is this guy a 'legit source'?

For what it is worth: I have heard from a reliable source that Boston wants JV. However, the Canucks are scared shitless to trade him to Boston, they fear a Neely 2.0 situation.

Lol dunno...it sure sounds real :D

I dont think we need worry about Virtanen becoming another Neely at all. I wouldn't be surprised if we just enjoyed his career year tbh.

Murph on Stecher: He does not want to play for another team. This is who he wants to battle with.

Really? A career year?

Well, he did match Nico Hirschier's offensive totals, so its just as well, we can't afford to re-up Jake for $7 mil+! :lol:

Doyle, your thoughts?

The next Cam Neely? No. But Jake is upping his stats each year, and although his playoff performance helped Benning's negotiating position, I think he'll continue his (slow) upward trajectory for another year or two. Best case scenario, he's a decent 3rd liner who can move up when needed.

Hischier is 21 and has averaged 53 points per 82 games over his career. Virtanen is 24 and has averaged 28 points per 82 games over his career. Virtanen’s career season matched Nico’s worst season, but Nico played 11 fewer games. Virtanen player on a high scoring team, Nico..... not so much.
