Re: Which would be the worst UFA contract?

The only way a Markstrom deal makes sense is if he has no expansion protection. Benning needs the flexibility come expansion draft time.

Re: Boeser, Brock

I think a lot of the people on the 'Trade Boeser' Camp have anxiety about his apparently diminished shot. They also salivate at the likes of Podkolzin and/or Hoglander becoming top-6 wingers. They look at what Toffoli was able to do in the regular season and the fit he had with Pettersson. Finally, ...

Re: Goalies moving forward.

I've listened to Benning's interview 3 times now and the most critical point he makes about the goalies is that he feels with our travel schedule, it's better to go with two proficient net-minders. Sounds like he wants Markstrom back but can only spend so much and Jacob has the right to test the ma...

Re: Your Vancouver Canucks 2020 Stanley Cup Playoff MVP

Pettersson for me. For a guy with such skill, he did so many other things on both sides of the puck and in every part of the ice. A lot of thankless work in dirty spots, and did it well. Those goals in The 3rd period of game 6 were due to the screens he set. He took on the physicality and still thri...

...and now Montreal upsets the Penguins. Some of the round-robin teams must be licking their chops.

Re: Canucks versus Wild Gm2 7:45 pm SNP

Time for these guys to start crashing the net and get some chaos going in the crease. They have the big bodies to do it. This game is big.

Git’er done boys!!

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

With Green sitting Jake for a tune-up game, it was the right move to send a message not only to Jake, but to the rest of the team. If Jake sits tonight, then there's something to discuss. If Green sits Jake in favor of Motte, Beagle or Roussel, the situation with Jake must be extraordinarily ugly, ...

I'm going 4-2 with an empty-netter for our boys. Petey, Miller, and Ferland - with Pearson getting the EN.

That bottom pairing scares me.

I’m not as skittish about Fantenberg/Stetcher. Funny, though, that I have heard little about Stetcher this camp. Then again, outside of Hughes and a more-rested Edler, I haven’t heard much about any of the blue liners at camp.

Re: Fix The Canucks Cap 2020 Offseason

Yeah, if Green doesn't start giving Jake more icetime, we should just trade him. But I don't want to trade him. :( I don’t think Green or Benning want to trade Jake. Green has the patience of Job for Jake, but it’s the playoffs and there is no time left for the usual tough love tactics. I dunno. Ma...

For some reason I feel like the Kraken will suck forever... unlike the Knights.

Just a hunch.
Ron Francis is no dummy, but he’s not going to pull a McPhee this time. They’ll be a lottery team for a while. Good to have a divisional punching bag as Vancouver starts competing for playoff spots.
