Re: Rebooted Around the League - 23/24

Woke? Rainbow-haired mobs? I thought we were talking about sexual assault. Wait I thought it was that he dropped an N-bomb on someone who was playing rap music... That was Bill Peters during his time with Calgary. Got exiled to the KHL after that. Now coaching in Lethbridge. We'll see if he gets re...

Re: Rebooted Around the League - 23/24

UK's Post I completely agree with the assessment of Q's qualities as a coach... if Rick had just a little less success this year, or stumbles out of the gate next year - I'll be the first in line hoping for a Coach Q replacement, the guy just wins. My comment was more on of the Blue Jacket's not wa...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

I don't have too much concern about Petey. He can be temperamental and can get cold. He's had is slumps, but he usually comes back better. I agree that he doesn't handle adversity well. That's stuff a kid can grow out of, and thankfully he's not the be-all-end-all of the forward core - even if we wi...

Re: Media (AKA Idiots) Rebooted

Could be worse. Ron Mclean is a crotch watcher. Scott Oake grabs players legs. When are these old losers going to go away? Brian Williams is still scratching at the door in his orange blazer. Bob Cole had to be taken out and shot. The Dude is correct. There's no money in the media anymore except fo...

Re: Rebooted Around the League - 23/24

Looks like some of this year's first round has signed today including Celebrini. So much for heading back to BU to play with his brother for one more year. Number two pick Levshunov signed as well. https://www.capfriendly.com/ Without Celebrini to play with at Boston University, does Willander have...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

The skating of DeBrusk, Heinen and Sherwood is exactly what this forward group needed. I welcome the additions. We were too slow of a team. I’m This will be an in your face tenacious hockey team playing that Tocchey Hockey system. I see a similar team to the Panthers. Management and coaching staff ...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

I guess management must be concerned about the threat of Silovs getting offer-sheeted if they’re circling back on DeSmith.

Re: Canucks News N Notes 24-25

Happy for Quinn after the season he had! Even happier to see a Vancouver team with its first ever Norris-winning defenseman. How many times have we lamented having a true game-changer on the blue line since, like, ever?? Thing is, I think he can get even better as his shot improves and he gets more ...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

Would have loved to have him on board at just $3 mill/yr, but the term and cap aren’t egregious. I don’t think his play will fall off a cliff, and while I don’t think he’ll keep his shooting percentage, I don’t think he will forget how to score. Another way to look at it is the club was not going to...

Some good work there. Bluegers is a good 3rd line centre/great 4th line centre.

Re: Re-booted SKYO approved pipe dreams and trade ideas

Bargains galore for the patient shopper. I don't think the Baldies will lose their nerve, at least I hope not. If we can divine Butthead's MO from last year's work, if he signs anyone on 1 July it's because management was fixated on getting that player no matter what. Guentzel may be that kind of s...

Re: 2024 Playoffs Discussion / Predictions

Too bad for the Oil, battled back for nothing. Gotta say though, if I were a betting man, I would go all in with the Oil for the Cup next season. They know they can do it now, just some tweaks here and there will result in a different outcome. They now have the taste, experience and have gone throu...

Re: 2024 Playoffs Discussion / Predictions

McJesus had a playoffs for the ages, and the Kraut had a great playoff run - and they still couldn't get it done. Lack of depth, too many brain farts on the blueline and average-to-good goaltending - the story of McJesus' tenure in Edmonton - did them in. For a team constructed to win around their t...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

Trouba hates Canada but agree he would be treated like a king in Van if he came back north. Maybe he could just hate Winterpig Canada and see the forest for the trees I can imagine Winnipeg not warming the hearts of all drafted there. That said, he would feel at home with all the Americans on the t...
