Re: Rebooted Around the League - 23/24

There is a rumour floating around that the Rangers are now discussing buy out Trouba as they have been unable to trade him for whatever they think works cap wise.

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

I think most will acknowledge that he had a let down as the season wore on and was all but invisible in the playoffs. I kept waiting for him to flip a switch. I think he has shown difficulty playing through adversity and needs to find a way to make that mental adjustment. Was he injured? I'll accept...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

I agree UW re Silovs. They staked a lot on him by using him instead of DeSmith, once DeSmith was cleared to play. He was vented by the Oilers and his weaknesses exposed. The kid still has some work to do. Re other issues about wingers Vs d’men, the Canucks may have tried to get a stronger candidate ...

Re: Raking Leaves with David Ayers Zamboni

Ha....good no sign Allvin....I take it all back. https://www.instagram.com/p/C88WHeagvZ2/?igsh=MWprNGw5cWs5NDA0cw== I read that a day or so ago but until the season starts we won't know. But it is why teams stayed away from him, including Dallas. And why he went for the contract term and cap he did...

Re: Just What Do the Sedins Do?

Disagree, bad habits can be replaced through hard work and dedication. The will to so is what is required. That can be through leadership establishing acceptable minimum standards with consequences for not meeting expectations. It is little different than raising children, and many of these coddled...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 24-25

Juulsen's development was stalled when he took a serious hit that kept him out of the lineup in his first year.He took two pucks to the eye in the same game. He suffered a serious eye injury and developed vision problems that took time to correct. He is former 1st rounder with a lot of potential. Un...

Re: Just What Do the Sedins Do?

I don't necessarily disagree. I don't think the Sedins could have made some of these guys better players. However, I also don't think the Sedins were great leaders. Certainly great example setters in terms of individual professional commitment, but despite their "legendary" competitiveness, I never...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

Important use of available cap to try to keep a balanced roster as well. If we had signed Big Z that means no DeBrusk, or no to 2-3 of the other 4 we added.

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

Debrusk isn’t a 3rd line player. Yes they could have waited to sign Joshua but the risk was that they don’t get DeBrusk and Joshua walks as a FA. Toffoli’s contract is more than what we are paying DeBrusk. Not sure I want him at what the cost would be. I don’t like the 7 year term but his cap is fin...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

In all honesty I think they should wait until cap, unless an unbelievable deal presents itself. Its see how our D pairings work out, who on the farm may be ready for the show. Up front lets see how Tocchet puts his lines together. There will be deals to have once teams start to waive players. I dont...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

And keep in mind how pissed Allvin was that having Poolman LTIR actually hindered them, for all the reasons stated, and that he wants to avoid playing in LTIR this season. He has a nice little cushion now, something of a rarity for us over the last few years. Of course he will make moves if it makes...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

A couple of things: Cole got 3x3. Too high a cap and much too long term. No way we should have brought him back at that. Yes he was decent on the PK but he had his warts. I liked him early on but saw him as average mid season and playoffs, yes with a buggered foot in the playoffs. But moving on was ...

Re: 2024 Offseason - moving forward

I agree with that Raty assessment. I think he has the potential for top six at the right time and I think if he has the season he did last year, and if the Canucks have a little extra cap, he gets a look see, more than once. Next year Suter, PDG and Boeser are FA. I don't expect him to fill Boeser's...
