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

We should probably protect that Boeser kid. I think he might turn out to be OK and, if the rules are the same as they were for Vegas, I believe he would need protection. Hell, if the expansion rules are the same, with only 1st and 2nd year players exempt, the Canucks will likely NOT bring up a ton o...

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

I hated the idea of chasing Lucic and was glad he turned down the Canucks. I hated the idea of chasing Ericksson and was disappointed he signed here. I never saw either player as a good fit for where we were in our development. But ya it's only money right, didn't cost us assets and he does have a ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I want Virtanen to succeed but when I think of power forwards I tend to think of the guys mentioned above. If he can be a middle six guy like a Hansen who hits harder Im ok with that. 30-40 points playing a strong two way game (because he is actually a strong defensive player) . For the life of me ...

If u are the Canucks and NOT close why are u littering your roster with progress stoppers...
Are we still talking about Megna and Chaput, or do we have others that are progress stoppers this year?

Re: Canucks Young Guns

But why is it easier to judge the 2017 draft than the 2014 draft ? Shouldn’t there be a bit more data on the players from the 2014 draft ? You have repeatedly called Petterson the BEST player of his draft which happened six months ago , yet Virtanen got drafted almost four years ago but it’s still ...

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

I’d have no trouble keeping him for similar money for another year or two. Problem is Eriksson and Sutter are here long term, so is Gagner. And I believe that the twins will be back for another year. So that effectively would tie up half your forward group in old guys. Id like to see the team get a...

Re: The Rebuild...

Benning has to go out and get a Bourque, Orr, Potvin or Lidstrom! If Elmer can't do something that simple, he needs to go. So, you are saying we need a generational player, or at least the best in their position player, and getting them is simple. Peter Chiarelli/Lou Lamoriello simple, eh Dude??? B...

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

Horvat, Boeser, Petersson, Juolevi, Demko, Tryamkin and our 1st round pick--untouchable. After that, do whatever it takes to get another 1st round pick in the top 15 this year. That's almost where I'm at right now. I'd add Lind, Gadjovich, Gaudette, Lockwood, Dahlen, DiPietro, Virtanen, Gaunce to t...

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

Only if BPA is far superior to the player filing a need. You could say MCann and Shrink-wrap were BPA and used to fulfill needs through trades. Not always an option, it takes two to tango. Did the Oilers take the BPA in 2012, instead of one of the plethora of d selected shortly after? I thought the...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Ryan Miller was arguably the team's MVP over the past 3 years, if it weren't for family he'd still be here and stealing a few games here and there instead of the shit show that's between the pipes right now. I agree with everything I just deleted. But Miller?? Yes, he's had a few good games, but th...

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

Yeah that's the good thing about Guds is that he can be traded anywhere, be interesting what happens with him between now and the deadline. Vanek is another good piece of trade bait, a team like Blues could probably use him who are loaded up for a Cup run this season, especially with Stastny on his...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

I think Boucher's ship has sailed as a part of the club's future. IMO he's a more offensively talented Chaput/Megna - a placeholder who can skate at the AHL/NHL until one of the prospects is ready. Woot, with Baercheese and BoHo out, looks like we'll get our regular dose of the likes of Chapoo, Meg...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Horvat out up to six weeks with leg injury. MRI showed bad news. Announcement forthcoming by Canucks. Chaput and Demko recalled. The Demko recall is once again an attempt to get as close the cap as possible before putting Dorsett on LTIR. Chaput recall to replace Bo, well his roster spot not him :(...
