can't wait! :D (Maybe this will end the 'epic' Bonino debate going on in another thread) ;)
that's a strech
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Honestly, the savings in sending Louie down are so minuscule that it makes sense to keep him on the taxi squad. If, gawd forbid, we have a rash of injuries having a vet on the taxi squad will be a good thing. I know his time here is done but absent him retiring or a trade we only have one more year after this.

If Eriksson went on waivers and cleared, (he did), and is put on the taxi squad, I believe the team saves the money as though he'd been sent to the minors.

Yeah I think so too and HW is right, it makes more sense this way.

Yes I saw that we get the same savings. So if we needed to add someone else to the roster then we just park his ass and not worry about the million plus.

Way too much will be paid to these players. They are still there cause things aren't as rosy right now. Will still get too much.

Why on Earth would you think Hamonic is looking for "4 million+ per at this point"? :wow:
At this point... he'd be lucky to get half that.
If Jimmy could dump Benn and sign Hamonic for one year at $1.8M I'd be in favour of dat dere.
I think he's looking for plenty more than you think.
Micky wrote: Fri Jan 01, 2021 11:24 am Sure, the temptation for what Travis Hamonic could bring but he aint gonna be as cheap as some think

Sounds like Miller and Benn out a couple weeks with covid.

My understanding is that due to COVID-19 concerns, D Jordie Benn and F JT Miller will not be with the #Canucks for a couple of weeks. Both players are quarantining. Miller had been staying at Benn's Vancouver residence @tsn1040
Fuck that suuuuucks

Benn and Miller out... deal with it. Perfect chance for a lesser lite to shine. Is Holtby starting? Just keep your heads above water for the first 6-8 games and then Petey and Quinn will take off.

So looking forward to watching some games. Hockey will be sloppy and frantic for a good chunk of the year.

Game on!

Goldarn it again. I mean, those kids in Utica aren't going to mentor themselves.

Perhaps Jimmy is doing this to troll...

I guess Loui's death was greatly exaggerated.

Did Benn get it from Jamie and his Dallas teammates?
Try to focus on THIS year...
