Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Hansen was a decent 3/4 line player. Good on the PK. And has speed. SJS was the biggest mistake of his career. Bet he’d like a do over and go to Montreal. Rumours were he was asked by Benning and said no. I’m surprised he couldn’t get a one year deal somewhere. Hansen provided what the Canucks were...

Is Virtanen the only unsigned RFA now?

Oh yeah, Palmu has been the best forward so far. 1 goal, 1 assist in the first period.

His sweet setup to Tyler Madden will be on the highlight reels tonight.
Madden has a pretty good shot too. I feel sorry for Hughes. He basically has nobody to pass the puck.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Anyone watching the Summer Showdown right now? ...or y'all busy whining? Kidding. Kidding. :mrgreen: First rush by Hughes from behind his own net. So Smoove! Give and go with the forward, then a nice cross-ice feed from the right corner to the other D... just missed. Yup. He's ready! DiPietro, Palm...

Re: The Rebuild...

I don’t think it’s a strategy they considered. BPA in the draft were small, and the team was pushed around last year. When you look at the roster it is apparent the team needs grit. Teams use free agency and trades to upgrade and to fill holes, but draft for BPA. If Dorsett hadn’t been injured and ...

Re: Free Agency 2018 & Everything Related

I don't necessarily love the terms for the three new gritty forwards but they are much better than Gaunce, Dowd and Archibald. I don't see why people are mad about it. People complained about lack of toughness. Now, the Canucks are a much tougher team and provide a safer work place for kids like Pet...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Pouliott signs for one year at 1.1 million. Better than Granlunds deal Granlund just had a 19 goals season in 2016/17. BTW, not sure how you can compare a forward to a defenseman? He played 20 minutes a game and played a lot with the twins and got a whack of pp time. I’m sure a lot of guys could pu...

Re: Canucks Special Teams

At one time Eriksson used to be effective there but not recently. Eriksson is still effective standing in front of the net. The problem was both Willie and Green did not deploy him there. Even if they did, only few point shots were getting through. Most of the time, the Canucks point men just aimed...
