I know i know, Elliott fucking Freidman...but....the comparison between how Dallas beat them vs how Van circled the wagons and almost did is interesting.

Vegas is built to wear down teams but when they match up against a "heavier" opponent it really neutralizes their ability to hem them in their own zone. Vancouver needs to add strength to their defense and upgrade their top 6 with a heavy winger or even 2...(red veiny eyeballs focused squarely on Stetcher and Pearson)
3. As part of this, the Canucks want to begin an overhaul of their blue line. One coach said it was noticeable how differently Dallas could handle Vegas as opposed to Vancouver. The Stars have a big, strong, mobile defence that consistently broke down the Golden Knights’ offence. After he said this, I spent some time re-watching the games, and you can definitely see it. The Canucks clearly felt they had to pack in the middle and defend from there, while Dallas felt very comfortable aggressively challenging Vegas and were successful doing it. The contracts and free agency get the headlines, but this will be a critical part of Vancouver’s planning. (This coach, by the way, also said another difference between Dallas and Vancouver was the Stars sustained pressure in the offensive zone, which forced Vegas’s best forwards to change instead of rushing the puck up ice. Small thing, but a big thing.)

Vegas Knights were spent. They had F**k-all left for Dallas after their five games in seven nights vs the Canucks.
They looked tired to me.

And Demko was still living rent free in their heads. Even DeBoer said as much. :P

Our old buddy Kes talks about taking pain killers to keep playing even when hurt. Kes may have actually done us a solid when he demanded a trade.

Apparently Tanev's camp is saying they want a 4-5 year deal.

I'll bet we could get him for 4 x $5M.

I think it will come down to JB moving out shit contracts before any signings happen.

I bet if it’s four years it’s closer to 4 million.

I hope he takes a 1 year deal.

Marky might be trying to get a NTC/NMC. (no thank you)
"I'm sure Jacob Markstrom and Newport Sports is pushing for the full no-trade, no-move clause."

on what he's hearing between the #Canucks and Jacob Markstrom's camp.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
