Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Vancouver will hold the 2019 NHL draft & same season will host the 2018/19 world junior championships. :o

Be cool to get another 1st in 2019.

Also if we draft Boqvist we most definitely will be able to see him with team Sweden in the junior championships.

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

If you deal Tanev to TBL, you won't get any roster players, just picks and prospects. "At the trade deadline, when you're trying to acquire players, usually teams that are selling are looking for younger players, draft picks and prospects," Yzerman told the Tampa Bay Times today. "At this stage, the...

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

The Hamilton trade was good, but that Hamonic one was bad, like my awesome breakdown? aha But yup Snow fleecing Alberta! -- Alexander Edler has been playing on fire lately, good to see his Team Sweden like bully play again, has a timely heavy hit from time to time and is on pace for over 30 points t...

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

I could see a conditional 2nd. If Tampa makes the Conference Finals and or Edler plays x games the pick becomes a 1st. Plus a prospect. That seems really light for a top-2 defencemen does it not? I would think a 1st and a A+ prospect or quality roster player would be the minimum. It'll be the Keena...

Friedman: Someone who strikes me as an under-the-radar possibility for Tampa Bay: Alex Edler. Remember though, he does have a no-trade. Rick Dhaliwal: Edler's agent refuses to answer calls, texts or e-mails, maybe there is something to the Tampa Bay rumour Edler to Tampa Bay could be a possibility,...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

I think whoever takes Boqvist will be pretty happy with the pick, he's only going to get better and should have a great season next year in the SHL as he gets older and stronger playing in the mens' league ( he's one of the younger players this 2018 draft ), plus he should have a superb 2019 WJC in ...

Re: Elephant in the Room - Trade the Sedins

I’d love them to come back next year, at the right price, but won’t be upset if they don’t. My bet, they re-sign for one more year around 4M - 5M each and we get the goodbye tour. Canucks can't afford to pay the Sedins that much imo, IF they decide to return for one more year it will be for $3M a p...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Pretty affordable and low risk term for Gudbranson - 3 years - $4M per. Great signing, glad to see Guddy will be staying a board. I would have been willing to go with a 4 year deal, but 3 is fine. He probably would have got more as a UFA. It's pretty much the same deal Sbisa got, but I think Guddy ...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Diehard, the Avalanche fixed their defence in one draft - Makar and Timins, and the Duschene trade - Girard. And don't forget the O'Reilly trade, Zadarov is playing good hockey finally. Anyhow, Benning can do a lot for this team's D with a top 10 pick in this draft and a high 2nd round pick. Unlike...

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

Jim Benning should try to sway Zach Whitecloud a undrafted college UFA damn to sign with the Canucks. Zach Whitecloud has become one of college hockey’s hottest undrafted free agents with scouts flocking to watch the 6-foot-2, 203-pound right-handed shooting blue liner. Front offices have been worki...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Media is there to sell clicks basically, that's their job - the villains. Glad the Canucks management don't give a shit what the media thinks and are doing their jobs - the hero's. Gudbranson when 100% is a beast and he's finally getting his confidence back and comfortable in the system/teammates/co...

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

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

I'm fine with Sutter for the next 1-2 years, maybe 3, but after that he'll be nothing but a drain on the cap. Sutter only has 3 years left on his contract, so when Pettersson signs his 3 year ELC this summer, Sutter's contract will expire when Pettersson's 2nd contract starts in the year 2021, so t...

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

Does anybody still like Sutter? He's a shutdown centre who is average at that role, is one of the worst passers on the team and probably in the league, doesn't play physical at all, 25-35 points average in a season (career high is 34, on pace for less than 30 this year if he played all 82 games). I...
