Re: 2019 offseason

If "the time comes" (it won't) with Beagle the buyout cap hit is a mere $1M-per. (so there would be no "asset attached to move him") And it's just ludicrous to compare a 29-year-old (Myers) to a 39-year-old (Marleau) as a possible buyout candidate. Fair enough about Beagle. However, I don’t think w...

Re: 2019 offseason

This contract only seems ok because it’s not the 7x7 that was reported earlier this week. As Diehard said, Myers will be a whipping boy before the end of the season. He’s going to be given top four (top two?) minutes to justify the contact when at best he should be playing bottom pair. He’s also goi...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Big acquisition for the playoffs. Nice cap hit and signed through next season. D got better without moving Nylander, Kapanen, Sandin. Liljegren. It's a decent trade for your team, Tuna. Your D gets better. You will have to move at least one, maybe two players you don't want to before next year thou...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 16-17 Sponsored by SKYO

Lightning have a bit of depth at center, need help on RW and defense. Probably lose a center in expansion draft (Namestnikov) or Killorn or to a trade (Johnson) and will still be deep at the position. Defense and RW need upgrades This is their fans plan they prefer right now: Hedman-Dotchin LHD-Str...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

As I say, if Leaves use even one cent of that LTIR relief ... all ELC bonus $$ are tacked onto the next year's cap. Over $5M worth in this particular case I believe. Just in case some found a Doc's math a little...fishy... https://theathletic.com/38871/2017/02/16/mirtle-making-sense-of-the-maple-le...

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Leaves - 4pm - CBC

Man, even though we lost, it was still an entertaining game. Love watching old school hockey, kind of reminded me of that Calgary game when we had Torts. I have a serious beef with Hank though. After the game he was asked about some of the shenanigans. When asked about what happened to Dank, he was...

Re: Canuck select Olli Juolevi - #5 pick

Wee bit scary Florida signed a veteran goalie. Na, Lou won't retire soon. Na, that couldn't happen... :?: There might be closed loopholes in the CBA, but if there were rumors in a couple years that Luongo was about to retire, couldn't Vancouver trade a low level pick for him and buy him out? That w...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Lucic met with Lombardi today. The result: "Pierre LeBrun reports that "Kings GM Dean Lombardi confirms via text message that Lucic is headed to market." Heard McGuire say on 1040 over lunch that Lombardi has already given all other 29 teams the green light to start negotiations with Lucic. If true...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Fact: According to NHl rules, a Player does not need to be "Hurt" to be sent down for a conditioning stint. So what's your point? Its fine, the Laffs have opened the door for the Canucks to do the same thing now with Virtanen. What was once extremely rare (conditioning stint for players riding the ...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Shinkaruk sent back to Utica...Grenier called up. 1 game...sheesh That was a quick cup of coffee for Shinky. I don't mind him going back; will be good for his development to tear it up in the AHL and get stronger and tougher in the process. The Canucks must feel they need more grit....so enter Gren...

Re: Ference 3 games

No problem with it. I suggest those who want to bitch, go to the NHL site and look through the Educational Videos (right sidebar to the Ferrance/Kassian video). Burrows was a pick from an odd angle that never was going to hit body and resulted in an injury. Ferrance was square to his man and drive ...
