Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

If your local, Benning coming on 650am radio within a couple of minutes to talk about Pettersson. Pettersson says he feels ready for the NHL and comfortable at centre or wing. Says he's up to 177 lbs now and can begin full training in 3 weeks (when thumb is healed). https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DeDU...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Canucks should 'Cody Hodgson' Ben Hutton and give him pure offensive zone minutes like Boston does with Krug. Get Hutton's points way up, then trade him for a power winger, just when everyone is falling in love with his game. If that works, why trade him, cuz that is a role we need filled. Also, th...

If his shoulder could clear a medical. And, if the Canucks are planning to move on without maybe Hutton or Polliot or Biega or Stecher or Del Zotto or whoever, This guy just may work out pretty well at an amount that isn't crippling. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=116024 I know...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Chicago is sitting on 2 1st rounders, I wonder if taking on Saad's contract would net one of them. Chicago fans are apparently still in win-now mode, so maybe Tanev for Saad + 8th overall? That seems pretty rich. Saad did have an off year, but there's no reason to suspect he is in total decline. We...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

So someone more knowledgable than me pkaesa confirm. If Gaudette's plays one game in the NHL he burns one year on his ELC. Correct? But he needs to play ten games for the season to count as one pro season. Correct? If this is true, he will be exempt from the expansion draft as he will either be a f...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

I think most here that want Maroon or Reaves are not trying to sign them to take quality minutes from the kids, but to get more limited minutes and provide some push back when sand gets kicked in their faces, Reaves more so than Maroon. I'd prefer to see a trade for a younger version of either of t...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Lmfao this thread went haywire I Dunno. Carlyee seems to be an up-and-coming CC Star. Solid analyitcs and advanced stats in that kid. Not like the old school "Gudbranson" style of Micky, that fails both the eye test and fails in all of the advanced stats departments. We'll see how Carlyee handles t...

What's in those multi-coloured drinks anyway?!
I am guessing it is a combination of high level training and coaching, along with a bit of sugar.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

To be honest; Instead of a summer full of off-ice training programs, I like to hear about these groups of pros that get together and get as much "on-ice" time as they can. Off ice training can be of some assistance but at the end of the day, if you want strong wrists to shoot the puck harder, then ...

Re: 2018 Offseason

Locking in to Kane for six years is a train wreck waiting to happen. The guy just makes too many poor choices. I’d offer higher salary with shorter term, would like three years max. Rather get a much cheaper Reaves to play on an energy/checking/protection role and see if the kids can bring the scor...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Without the Sedins, for me it seems the youth will shine, team will be filled with youthful energy and young leaders notably a one Bo Horvat. Markstrom should in theory get better as that was basically his first real season as a #1, now he knows what to expect mentally. I think they bring in a one ...

They are pure class acts. I wish they were staying for 1 more year while we flush out the Gagne/Granlund's, but They have totally earned the right to make their own choices. I just hope the media isn't influencing that choice.
So, who else is gone or not re-signed this summer? Jokinen? Dowd?

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Is there really interest in LE? After the patheticness hes shown? He's been struggling offensively on your Vancouver Canucks, but he's still an elite defensive forward. Damn rights. Heck, he's 3rd on this crappy team in +/- among our forwards, and he still looks to be a 40 point guy if he had staye...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Nah shut him down, it'll help the Canucks' negotiating power when his contract is up after next season :P I was going to post earlier that this injury might help Canucks' negotiating power (they could extend him this off-season) ... but I didn't want people to think I'm some kind of asshole. :wink:...
