Is that really Gagner? Wow, his line with Baerstchi and Virtanen seems to have really good chemistry. They created three or four good scoring chances and finally Baerstchi buried one.

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

I wouldn't be surprised by a hockey trade involving Jake for another struggling peer. Bearchia is in the same boat, Granlund too if he'd been healthy. Those two were always the next set of placeholders anyways. Virtanen for Domi? Seems about right. Both have baggage, but at 5'-9" Domi doesn't fit t...

Re: GDT 20-02-18: Canucks vs Avs

Virtanen and Goldobin seem to have chemistry. I think a more skilled centre maybe what they need. But they also need a Dowd or Sutter, more defensively responsible. It’s a quandry right now. It would be nice to see Gaudette centre those two. Yeah, I'd like to see that. Hopefully Gaudette can make t...

Canucks #1 goal now is to amp up the dmen prospects for the Canucks, the more options the better to get better on defense, besides the draft, next best option is college ufa dmen, as trades are hard to do and the bidding for UFA dmen is expensive . Lots of people don't understand that concept. :mrg...

Goldobin with a goal and assist so far. First multiple point game. He’s playing with more confidence and he and Jake compliment each other.
Goldobin is having a great game. He skates well tonight. After a shaky first period, Pouliot also has a great game making some nice moves and passes.

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Sounds like Benning is very active on the phones. Says it's too early to tell what will unfold TDD. He was responding to a question about, now that Gudbranson is re-signed and Tanev is hurt, does he expect to be busy TDD. I expected a no but he seemed to indicate that there is a lot of talk setting...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

I don't get Botchford's tweet though. Just because they signed Gudbranson doesn't mean they have to trade Vanek. I wager Benning will make trades for picks, but just because they signed Gudbranson doesn't mean Benning won't make trades in a couple of days. Botchford and the rest of the nerds believ...

The interwebz are going apeshit in 3...2...1. Can't wait for the Bitchford articles and Pat-casts. The nerds are already in full force :mrgreen: Daniel Wagner‏ @passittobulis The worst part of the Gudbranson contract is that it's just reasonable enough that some fans will treat it as a win. #Canuck...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Pretty affordable and low risk term for Gudbranson - 3 years - $4M per. Bob McKenzie: Gudbranson will get $4.4M next season, $4.6M the season after that and $3M in the third and final year of the deal, for an AAV of $4M. This contract does NOT include a NTC of any kind Great signing for both partie...

Interesting, would $12.5m for 3 years be too much?

Deal not yet done but seems to be headed in that general direction. Bob McKenzi...
