Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Given how they shipped out a lot of their vets, and their owner is the biggest cheapskate in the league, I wouldn’t be surprised if Ottawa took on Louie’s contract for a bag of pucks. Even Dorion knows you can’t have a team of nothing but kids.

Re: Canucks add Toffoli (Schaller, Madden, 2nd, cond 4th)

Hate to see a prospect of Madden’s caliber go, but the top three centers are set, and there are better wingers ahead of him if they wanted to try him on the wings. Champagne problems, no? Still, the only way this trade doesn’t smell is if Toffoli produces sufficiently into the playoffs and gets resi...

Re: OOTS; 2019-2020

In house hearing so minimum 5 games. Well here's the thing. It didn't hurt the guy at all. but it was a freakin skate blade. A little higher? Not good He didn't hurt anyone, yes, but the league absolutely wants to put their foot down on this to prevent anything like this from happening again. We ha...

Re: Time to Forgive Ryan Kesler?

I’m ready to move on from the hate I had for the prick. He was an asshole, but he was our asshole for more than a few good years. Looking back, he was one of the first rats off the ship when he saw Gillis starting to spin his wheels and the team slipping from contention. Even he admits he handled hi...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

No action in here, considering how close the trade deadline is. I like Jake on the top line, and with Lind, Bailey, MacEwen, Podkolzin and Hoglander in the pipeline, the Canucks have most of their top prospects available on RW, sooooo.... Trade Brock Boeser for Noah Dobson Then trade either Tanev f...

Re: Are the Canucks Stanley Cup contenders?

In the finals it was the same story. Difference is that we weren’t as fast as Tampa. Our skilled guys were slower and played a cycle game that didn’t involve as much cross ice as it did overload. Our secondary was very beat up. Our goalie either closed the door completely or opened up wide. But aga...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Dobson looked solid today. Vilardi looking to be injury prone but is only 20 still. OJ-esque...if you will Dobson is going to be a nice player. He can skate like the wind... does it all. I wanted Dobson but Hughes is exactly what this franchise needed. Different players. Dobson looks like he could ...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Chickenshit of the Sea... ‘National’ sports networks now pollute the satellite feeds with hand-wringing and silver lining-drawing about ‘the only team that matters in Anglo Canada’. Drinking Leaf fan tears like they were Grey Goose. Can’t we find a ‘fan’ in Wuhan to drop by their dressing room after...

Poor Canuck fans 7 wins in a row and you can't enjoy it because toronto is better and taking all your press away... Until your team beats our team on 1 March your collection of wimps and 'me-firsts' are not better than our team, and no amount of stat-pointing will change that. Vancouver could be on...

Are the flames now tanking?
Seems more like shipping a disgruntled player while there was a market. Frolik has a bit of history of not being happy with his playing time in Calgary.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Hoglander seems to be playing possessed out there. I think his grit and hands will get him success at the NHL level.

Having him and Podkolzin in two years' time will make for some roster juggling. Maybe Leivo and Pearson shouldn't get too comfortable.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Happy this trade didn't involve Vancouver. Hall can snort all the shit he wants in the desert, and if Arizona wants to mortgage their prospect assets for a pending UFA well who am I to criticize a conference rival for doing so? I don't see Arizona being anything more than an also-ran in the Western ...
