Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

Too early to vote. So much can happen between now and puck drop.

Still waiting for Benning to swing the big trade.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

In: Petersson, Gaudette, Goldobin, Hughes One of these things is not like the others: elite, elite, crap, elite. Just because Botchford sings Goldobin’s praises at every opportunity doesn’t mean he is no longer a bubble player at best. The guy is carried by Virtanen in garbage games at the end of l...

Re: What to do with Hughes

A few other thoughts. Signing Hughes would alleviate some pressure off Juolevi's first season. Easily allowing him to start with the Comets and avoid the Van media. Unless you catch them with their head down, hitting a kid with the level of skill and mobility that this kid has is waaay harder than i...

Re: What to do with Hughes

The talk they have may be about Utica should he sign and they feel he needs to play there for a spell. Is he comfortable with that? Does he think it will help or hurt vs returning to the NCAA. It’s exactly because Benning can’t and won’t guarantee an NHL spot that we are in a holding pattern. I sus...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Pedan is a fairly tough fucker who wouldn’t ever back down. Good mobility, but not good enough laterally to compete in today’s NHL. Decent puck moving skills, but again, not quick enough. A bubble NHL dman... perhaps a decade too late tho.

I very highly doubt Sam Gagne will be here next year. Might just move him for a 3rd or 4th pick but because of dressing room type rumors,
that's what I"d guess. I cannot confirm those rumors
Stop talkin outta your ass then.

Re: Free Agency 2018 & Everything Related

Big bodied checker will improve the PK and provide leadership and accountability. One of the best faceoff guys in the league over the last 4 years.

Solid addition.

Re: Free Agency 2018 & Everything Related

Antoine Roussel F Length - 4 YEARS Total - $12M Cap Hit - $3M Did we just pay a less skilled version of Burrows $3m per for four years? Maybe this is the market rate now but seems rich to me. Roussel is a DD replacement. DD signed a 4 year extension for roughly the same % of cap hit 4 years ago tha...
