Re: World Championship 2021

Canucks fans are lucky to have a well-known barometer by which to judge the standard of play at this year's World Championship. The tournament points leader so far is Nicklas Jensen, and we have a pretty good idea exactly how good he is. Adam Clendening is also 14th in goals scored. I can't find a s...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

He expects to be a playoff team next year I think we've established that GMs can't -- and often shouldn't -- be completely frank with their fan bases. Who thinks this is something Benning really believes, and who thinks it's just something he pretty much has to say at this point in his tenure?

Re: 2021 Draft Class

Here's something truly hilarious - after all the shit the Canucks went through, 21 players on IR with a month to go... ...they STILL would have been in the playoffs if they were still in the Pacific Div! :lol: :lol: How do you figure? Last year, every team in the Western Conference that made the pl...

Re: 2021 Draft Class

Some of our best posters arrived here over the last 2 or 3 years... So long as the principle criterion for "best" is "most willing to drink Strangelove's kool-aid", yeah, that tracks. * pushes Cliffy's face into punch bowl * * holds it there * * hoooooolllllds it * :mrgreen: Oh, wow, straw-lime-gra...

Re: 2021 Draft Class

The archives reveal this site has never been as busy as it has been these last few years... I suppose Micky does bring up the average. Still, one poster, however brilliant, posting over 16 thousand times in five years can't really bring the full spectrum of diverse opinions we used to enjoy. Some o...

Re: 2021 Draft Class

I used to monitor this place from Central, there were never "hundreds of posters" actively posting together. :lol: Not even close! Hell the off-seasons here were averaging 2-3 posts per day!

Imagine if Gillis and Co had been halfway smart at the draft table...
That can be a very discouraging game. Imagine if that group had thought Erik Karlsson could do more to help the franchise than Cody "Silent G" Hodgson.

Re: 2021 Off-Season Predictions

I honestly think the Aquas are managing the team and Jim is what the La Cosa Nostra refers to as a “Front Boss”. Made to look like the boss to deflect the feds away from who really is the boss. A Dupe persey. Dupe’s are notorious in the stock market. Stock promoters set up Dupe accounts with firms ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

BTW Cliff, the horror show that we're experiencing this year is just a blip, just a bump in the road . The progression is real and undeniable, you know as well as I do the progression will continue. I know no such thing. If I had to guess, I'd say the Canucks peaked low and early, which was the res...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I was down on Benning early too Cliffy but I dont suffer from entrenchment issues like many here seem to. If i see that i was wrong i admit it. Well that's a useful trait, and I like to hope I share it. For my part, I have only ever said that I am skeptical of Benning's approach, not "down on it". ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I'd say the Canucks peaked low and early, which was the result I feared from the outset with Benning's approach. Reeeeally now... You've been down on the Benning plan since the outset and I cant recall one instance where you have credited him with ever reaching a peak at all, let alone said peak be...

He's a typical Vancouver deranged boo bird. :mex:
Should I read that as a "no thank you" on defining the Benning core, or saying how many members of it will be on the eventual Stanley Cup Championship team?

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Why is Cliffy so angry? Because you ask me questions in your posts, I do my sincere best to answer them, and you persistently dodge mine. Once more, if drafting is the only skill that defines the quality of a GM, and Benning has been drafting at genius levels, then the Canucks should be a great tea...
