Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

Is CoHo's recent success here more due to the system or to fact he has increased his skill set? Let's see how he does in Buffalo before we make comparisons to Naslund, Linden et al. In hindsight, I'm sure Erhoff is regretting taking a few bucks more to play in Buffalo then contending for another Cup...

Re: Trade Deadline Discussion

Just a few names I have been looking at to fill up our D, now with Ballard on LTIR. Was wondering what the consensus would be? Jordan Leopold - 31 - 3M Buffalo John Erskine - 31 - 1.5M Washington Tim Gleason - 29 - 2.75M Carolina Thinking that any of these guys could slot into the final pairing and ...

Re: TSN..productive tough guys

After #5 on that list, you could almost insert any palooka over 6'4" toiling away on the Wheeling Nailers.

The fact that a goof like Sean Avery gets cred as a "tough guy" and is in their top 20 (#19) speaks volumes about that formula they use. Surprised Marchand and Cooke didn't make the list too.

Re: Cap Floor & Mr Ballard

We also have Ryan Parent who will get his chance this year, great junior career, just hasn't been able to make a consistent leap to the bigs....although Philly did give him a decent shot. Downside: another lefty and offensively challenged. Upside: Way less $$ than Ballard, good size and not a defens...

Re: Hodgson Outlook

Can we stop with the Cam Neely comparisons? There is no way in hell that Hodgson is ever going to morph into Neely. The best I ever hope to see him morphing into would be a smaller Shane Doan. They both have similar junior careers and we're both pegged to be "sure things".I saw Doan as a rookie when...

Re: Hodgson Outlook

I think that this is a make or break camp and start to the season for Hodgson....if he gets that far. The window of "greatness" for the Canucks seems to be another 2, 3 years max with our current lineup. Unless GMMG can pry guys like Parise or Weber away (unlikely) with out selling the farm, a kid l...

Re: Ehrhoff Greed

Burkie loves aging over priced American D-men, so my guess is Ballard ends up a Leaf.

I know many think that Weber will never come here, but maybe via trade rather than the RFA route. If he stays in Nashville, any thoughts about Keith Yandle?....maybe a good fit to replace Erhoff, he is also an RFA.

Re: Bieksa signed

I'll agree that Ballard my have been a step up from a guy playing with one hand, but Ballard ain't a game changer....unless the league gives goals for hip checks. So he inserts Ballard, we lose Game 7, 3-0 instead of 4-0. Too many guys in our top 6 were hurt....Hank, Kesler, Higgins, Samuelsson, Ray...

Re: Bieksa signed

Way off topic here but AV was badly out-coached in the SCF! AV wasn't able to figure out a way to defeat what Julian was doing. We were owned on the Power play, Penalty Kill and 5 on 5! Pathetic if you ask me. Best in the league at everything but when it counts we can't do anything right. It's AV j...

Re: Flyers make some moves

Sweet news for the "Winnipeg Franchise".....lol

Just saw that JM Liles was traded to the Leaves for their 2nd rounder next season....maybe they could use Ballard?
Burke does love those over priced American players

Re: Flyers make some moves

Sportsnet was reporting (Kypreos and McLean) that there might have been some trouble in the "room" with respect to both those guys. They also mentioned that Winnipeg, Toronto and the Rangers were also in the running. Winnipeg would have loved Richards but not for Kane, Begosian and a 1st rounder. Pr...

Re: Spineless

Agree with Clam, standing there and getting abused when the game is over is very demoralizing. Jeezus Daniel, use your stick and spear him in the junk. I've seen Atom Ringette players with more moxie.

Oh yeah, and ffs....stop diving.

Now go out, nut up and bring that Cup home.
