Re: Canucks Young Guns

BTW my longtime buddy Diehard already admitted he was trolling when he called you "the voice of reason"! I wasn't kidding when I said this board needs Blob's (and Don's, and IN's, and other non-cultists') perspective to maintain some sort of balance, i.e. avoid becoming the mirror-universe version ...

Re: the paranoia of the canuck fanbase

Suffice it to say, I’ve never seen anybody miss the forest for the trees as much as you That's odd considering that very idiom is constantly used by the antiblobs to describe the blobytes (folks such as yourself). If you are as much in the mood to illustrate as debate, could you please expand on th...

If we're relying solely on the lottery picks, Bo Horvat is nearing UFA just as players like Pettersen and Hughes are hitting primetime.
Or, as some may have suggested, the Canucks need(ed) to acquire more high picks.

Too bad McCann didn't develop into more of an asset.

Re: the paranoia of the canuck fanbase

Hey Cliffy, if you want to see a "circle-jerk" go check out HFCanucks (AKA Bizarro World) ... and then thank folks like ESQ and yours truly for saving us all from dat dere. I suppose I was lucky that in my peregrinations about the intertubes, this was the group I stumbled across first. Multiple pos...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Contact Alex Burrows immediately and make him head coach of the Vancouver Canucks. One of the principle lessons I took out of the Gillis era was the extent to which building a successful NHL franchise is a political exercise. This lesson in mind, I submit that no Burrows-coached NHL team would be a...

Benning is a good drafter....
Some may think me overly conservative -- paranoid, even -- but so far there is exactly one Benning draft pick, Brock Boeser, of whom we can say, "boy, he sure does look good taking a regular NHL shift." Everything else is just hope, however well-founded.

He's a figurehead, nothing more, nothing less.
So is he figureheading badly, or do you think the figurehead role is unnecessary, or even counter-productive ?

Re: the paranoia of the canuck fanbase

Where is Blob, btw? He was asked to leave :eh: By his wife and kids? In self defence. Without Blob's perspective, this board would be in serious danger of turning into a circle-jerk. "How amazing was Benning's last move?" "Sooooo amazing. He's ten times the general manager Sam Pollock ever was!" "W...

Re: If you could move just one

Trevor Linden Interesting ! In what way(s) would you say Linden's performance has been deficient? How are you able to determine that those deficiencies lie with Linden rather than other elements of the ownership/management group ? Were you just trying to stir up shit, or do you actually have a take...

Re: The Rebuild...

Just because Bettman and the owners don’t have a rule, doesn’t mean they couldn’t come up with one after the fact. They screwed Vancouver after the fact on the Luongo contract. I’m sure they would enjoy screwing the Canucks again if given half a chance. I am pinning some hope on the idea that they ...

Defense:
Quinn Hughes
Jett Woo
Olli Juolevi
Jack Rathbone
Kristoffer Gunnarson
Toni Utunen
Cole Candella

Who am i missing?
Guillaume Brisebois, but I'd be surprised if he's ready yet.

Only 2" difference in heights :mrgreen:
I was thinking that perhaps the angle of the photograph was deceptive in that regard.

Or Maybe young Mr. Woo is taller than advertised ? :roll:

Re: Free Agency 2018 & Everything Related

And if Canucks eventually trade Sutter for that exact same player after getting a few years of use out of him? :sly: Then Benning did very well to trade for a player who is presumably younger than Sutter and with more upside. JB hasn't made many trades like that, so far. It would be reassuring to s...
