Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

I see Benning as more of a "tinkerer" than a "buyer" if we are in the playoff hunt. Spare part guys like Granlund and Schaller may be on the way out. Edler and Tanev (our 2 most valuable assets) are both playing like they want to stay here, which is awesome, but, also means we likely won't trade eit...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

shifting a body to Utica without waivers oh well Opens up the ability to bring up another player from Utica for try-outs. Good move imo. I just worry that retaining on MDZ might cost us on another trade, as we are retaining our 2 allowed salaries. But, it's a moot point if Benning is planning to wa...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

With Goldobin continually in the dog house I wonder if next year is the year for Dahlen to claim that winger spot beside Pettersson. I think he has a ways to go before he is ready. But, he has made some big strides in Utica so far, so he is projecting in the right direction. Here's to Mr Pink repla...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Actually Wids, the biggest thing I worry about is that he bolts for the USSR Russia, and we get nothing. :cry: But Green has to do his job and Goldy does bail on plays he MUST make defensively so hopefully it sinks in! 50/50 ? Daigle, Stephan, Brendl. And maybe Goldobin. At least Goldobin knows wha...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Schaller could be sacrificed. He's got 5 points in 32 games and is a minus 5. He's 28 years old and has no future here. If we lost him for nothing, who cares. He is listed as a center. I wonder if he gets waived this season? Strap some goalie pads on the boy, and Philly will take him :D But, I do t...

Re: What to do with Alex Edler ?

I would resign Edler to a series of 1 year contracts. He can have full NMC in any year except 20/21. (I don't want to have to protect him). Tell him up front you are overpaying him, and give him 6 or 7 million next year to prove it. (Wtf, it ain't my money). Then later, after we have signed Boeser,...

Re: OOTS 2018-2019

God, why wouldn't they cough up 5th for Nilsson then? Why would they? They are tanking, and saved a 5th doing it. Because you need a winning culture. Isn't that what we believe? I agree that you need a winning culture (regardless of your actual record), but, seriously, how does Nilsson help that? H...

Don't know if posted elsewhere, but icymi Patrik Berglund is on waivers, iirc JB sought him in a package in 2014 for the RK trade.

Re: Draft Day 2015: Picks & Trades

Pavel Bure picked at 113th says hello... Interesting comparison. Bure is the hands down winner of out-performing his draft position, but he woulda been top 10, or even top 5 if the GMs thought he could be brought over, due to contract/rules issues. But, Boeser is easily our most over-achieving pick...

Jake is ok in my books now, I’ve accepted that he isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed and does stupid things with the puck when under pressure and has zero anticipation skills

I’ve lowered my expectations but he’s ok in my books

Aaah, the first step in becoming a true Canucks fan. :D :D :D

Re: Seattle Expansion/Canucks players

And, if they promise to claim Eriksson in the expansion draft, I'll promise to buy season tickets. Wow - I didn't realize you such an Eriksson fan! :D I like Eriksson, but I don't like his contract for the last 2 years. Well, I don't like his contract right now either, but it isn't hurting the Canu...
