Re: Canucks Young Guns

BTW my longtime buddy Diehard already admitted he was trolling when he called you "the voice of reason"! I wasn't kidding when I said this board needs Blob's (and Don's, and IN's, and other non-cultists') perspective to maintain some sort of balance, i.e. avoid becoming the mirror-universe version ...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Apparently the Blackhawks were after Gagner when he was a UFA & were kicking tires on his trade availability. Hopefully his contract with us doesn’t take him off the Hawks radar. If I remember, Hawkes offered him a two year and Benning added that third year to laid him so maybe it’s just what Chica...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Rick Dhaliwal: Goldobin says he talks to Nikita Tryamkin, “I try to get him back to NHL but I don’t think it’s happening for a year or two.” #Canucks Could be as early as next season when Tryamkin makes his return, anyways all the more reason to keep Goldy around aha, even if we have to wait two mo...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Well under Desjardins he was more engaged but with Green and Brown they turned him more into a depth guy, and Brown gave him the least amount of powerplay time in many years. Total time on ice for powerplay Loui was behind the sedins, vanek, boeser, horvat, gagner, baertschi. Total POWERPLAY minutes...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

One thing we all overlook is that with the Sedins and Vanek gone, Eriksson can go back to his "office" around the net and get his powerplay time back, back to where he can get 25-30 goals he's proven he can do when given the proper coaching *cough* Newell Brown. And if Loui can score 25+ goals per y...

Yeah Gagner would pretty easy to deal, has a reliable 40pt per season resume, only two years left on deal, right shot center/winger.

So you're convinced they will use Pettersson as a center?
They will, maybe not right off the bat but by mid-season he should be being groomed for the center role, it's a key position for the Canucks long term success plan.

Re: How to trade Loui Eriksson

During the 2016 UFA season lets look at who might have been in on Loui Eriksson.

Re: The Rebuild...

In the perfect world Pettersson would start on the 3rd line center spot, just like other high end center prospects like Nolan Patrick for example. Flyers October lineup: Patrick and his winger Konecny started on the 3rd line. 28 Claude Giroux | 14 Sean Couturier | 93 Jakub Voracek 40 Jordan Weal/Leh...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I didn't really follow either Goldy or Lipstick earlier in their careers, but is there really that much of a difference from Dahlen? Asking from a lack of knowledge, not trying to disagree (and I'm too lazy right now to do any in depth research). I'm holding out for Goldobin, though. H improved his...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Ducks re-sign Henrique, which means Devils get their 3rd rounder next year as well.
Adam Henrique's five-year extension with Anaheim carries an AAV of $5.825M
There goes my master plan on trading with the Ducks, then swapping Henrique + Stecher for Pulock aha, as islanders need a top 6 center.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Trouba is injury prone just as much as Tanev though. Ryan Pulock or Cal Foote imo should be some key targets to try to acquire. (younger/big fellas/right side dman/with a good shot and can play some meaningful minutes), basically try to get a future top pairing going in the next few years with Hughe...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

All this Quinn Hughes talk I think is good for Juolevi - he's assumed to be starting in the AHL already, but now that he is out of the micro Vancouver spotlight, maybe he steals the preseason show, the darkhorse Finlandian.
