Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Rick Dhaliwal is reporting the Edler camp is looking for a FOUR year deal. Just reporting what I just heard. If it was cheap, I might consider it. Nah!!!! give him a little more for three and say take it or leave it. We're good on defense, right 2 years max 3 years, and no trade protection, so we c...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Who sits for Gaudette? My pick is always Goldobin but I can admit his play has been grittier lately. Granlund is kind of gritty but not as offensively capable as Goldobin. I guess I don't care so long as it's not Macewen. It better not be Goldobin who sits. We have had him for 100 NHL games, but we...

Re: The "ALL HOCKEY / NO BS" hockey talk thread

Bo I’m sure we put an end to this slump and start rippling the mesh on a more consistent basis. At least it’s not a 2 goals in 25 games code red situation like it is in Toronto with 7 shmill per NILander I don't have any worries about Bo. What Bo needs is some consistent line-mates. But, even with ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Ranking the Canucks prospect pool (not currently with the big club). Demko removed. Is Tryamkin still considered a prospect? Gaunce? McEneny? No, Gaunce is not a prospect. We know he's not an NHL'er. But, he and Boucher make sure that Utica is competitive. McEneny is looking like a Never Was. But, ...

Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

Too bad Juolevi is out for the year. This would have been his opportunity. Now, if Edler is out long term it will belong to Hughes soon enough. What is the magic number of games Hughes can play this year, and still not need protection in the expansion draft? Cuz that is the exact number of games I ...

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

Sutter and Beagle enable the Canucks to be ranked 6th best in the league on the penalty kill, it's basically two #1 PK units. I don't think people recognize the nastiness other teams implemented on the Canucks every game before the arrival of Guds, Roussel. One Gudbranson on D is enough to help the...

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

I can see the desire to dump/trade Goober, Eriksson and Sutter, and the Goldobin sucks talk, but where is the "hate" for Baertschi and Granlund coming from? Baertschi does have concussion issues, but, he's still on pace for 30 goals (pro-rated for injuries) and he has improved every year, and is sti...

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

I was just commenting in yesterday's GDT about our current roster's lack of individual playoff experience, particularly amongst the top-6 forwards, and it occurred to me that where we are at as a team it makes even more sense to go after a top-6 (if not top-3) forward who can boast having played in...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Apparently the Oilers are rumoured to be very interested in Judd Brackett. Noooooooo! Not our secret weapon. Fuck off Edmonton! According to rumors, your buddy Gillis' name is being bandied about as a candidate for Oilers GM. He's been desperately trying to get back into a front office position for...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

The Oilers new GM only has one option, don’t do anything, be patient and ride it out. There’s no quick fix there. Draft, draft draftMaybe fire the pro and amateur scouting staff McJesus has about 12 years of dominance hockey left in him. What’s the rush? I don't think the team knows what patience i...

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...

That's gotta hurt Gaunce, being less than Zero.

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...
