Re: Canucks News and Notes

Drafting is a crap shoot always has been, always will be. If you're going to select some kid in the later rounds, of course they're going to be viewed as projects. What's the point of drafted low-upside guys like Stewart, Hannay, Morgan Clark or Evan Fuller in the 7th round when you can take someon...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Next on the priority list, I think would be to sign Sawyer Hannay and Taylor Ellington. Maybe we can get Evan Fuller off the rodeo circuit and back into hockey?

Re: CANUCKS SIGN RYAN MILLER

All that was needed was a veteran to provide Eddie some insurance. I think Eddie will be alright, love the goofy attitude. If he wasn't run into the ground by Torts I think he would've impressed even more. Instead we blow 6 mil in cap space on Miller, who will probably "need" 60 plus starts. I guess...

Re: Prospects Thread 2012-13

For all the the hemming and hawing about how crappy the Canucks drafting has been, we're going to have a lot of guys playing pro hockey this year. G - Lack, Cannata, Eriksson (thank you Sweden for our FA goalie depth) D - Sauve, Price (if he signs), Andersson, Polasek, Corrado, Tommernes F - Schroed...

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

I highly recommend the HF Canucks board right now. Chicken Littles screaching and scratching all over the place. Quite entertaining.

For a website dedicated to prospects you'd think they'd have heard of Lack, Eriksson and Cannata.

Hope Lu's ok with staying. Really liked Corey.

Thankfully the prospect cupboard is stocked at goal if nowhere else.

Amen brother. He was a knob back when he was on HNIC for some reason back in the day, I believe he was busy smoking Flames pole back then. His shtick has not improved one iota. I found myself yelling epithets at the TV like an unhinged dingbat

Re: GDT: R1G1 - Canucks host fish - 7:30

Unfortunately I can only get this game on NBC sportsnet down here in the Greater Vancouver shopping district... The Sharks broadcasters are a joke. Drew Remenda? Maybe the biggest weiner in the hockey media. Le sigh...

Re: Prospects Thread 2012-13

Found the Wisconsin vs. Denver game on cable last night, caught the last two periods. Not a whole lot of action - would've made a Jacques Lemaire or Ken Hitchcock proud. Joe LaBate did collect an assist on the only Badgers goal though - pass back to the point off a faceoff win, shot on goal by Ramag...

Everyone seems to be down on lil Anton Rodin. We keep preaching the Detroit player development model but no one is actually willing to be patient with our prospects, its the mothereffin' Chicken Little routine every time. Shoulder issues, just starting his second season on N.A. ice. Everyone agrees ...

Re: Gaza Attacks

If its true that 90% of the Palestinians are of Jewish stock than WTF does that say about two opposing worldviews/religions? Wiener, spineless western liberals love to pick the Palestinian horse. I think its been fairly clear that Islam has become diametrically opposed to Western-style civilization,...

Re: Eye Reedz (book thread)

Under the Banner of Heaven is also indispensable Krakauer. Particularly since we have a Mormon up for election in this country. Its amazing what millions of dollars in PR money will do to legitimize your cult.
