Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

The best comparison for Sutter ($4.375M aav) is Artem Anisimov ($4.55M aav) , both tall two-way centers who won't score a bunch, but are ultra reliable, all they need is some scoring wingers to succeed. Sutter who had even crappier wingers (Higgins/Burrows/Vrbata) here compared to AA (Panarin/Kane/...

Re: NHL business

I've been watching a fair bit of Euro 2016 and the TSN panel on that production is excellent. Luke Wileman hosts, Jason de Vos breaks down defensive highlights and Kristian Jack does the attacking highlights. All three are concise, and the two experts do a really good job of breaking down 'film'. I...

I still smell a rat in the whole messy Vesey affair and if he winds up in the windless city then I will know for sure.... http://www.tsn.ca/sabres-acquire-rights ... s-1.511608

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

And the Oilers miss out on another dman. I can see Cam Fowler being moved. The Ducks will keep Hampus and Sami and they are stuck with Bieksa. Despres or Fowler are gone for sure. Montour and Theodore are young up and comers. They are stuck with Bieksa. We are not which is an example of good manage...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Canucks trading for #3 is justice served. We got jipped on the draft lotto, and CBJ gets their 2nd back as the compensatory rule was changed just soon after the Torts hiring. All things being equal with their lack of cap space and our picks being so close, a deal should be made to appease hockey ju...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Vey does not expect a QA from Canucks. Expects to be UFA July 1 because of this. Will circle back to Canucks July 1 as part of his search for a new home. Does not rule out Europe or KHL but preference is to find an NHL home. This news makes me happy. :D Ya, I guess Benning saying Vey could benefit ...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Definitely seems there will be some action in the top 10 picks. Not the top 2 but from 3-10 and perhaps higher there could/should be movement. I think Montreal could still move up but now I read Carolina too.... Gotta get a lot of hockey beer for Friday, should be a good one (like I'm not already ex...
