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

I guess the scary thing is the Oilers - Justin Schultz scenario, they overused him before he was ready, put way too much pressure on the kid, the young coaches ruined him and his confidence, then got dealt for a 3rd rounder and the Pens experienced coaches made him work from the bottom #6/#7 role, l...

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

Canucks should 'Cody Hodgson' Ben Hutton and give him pure offensive zone minutes like Boston does with Krug.

Get Hutton's points way up, then trade him for a power winger, just when everyone is falling in love with his game.

Re: Playoffs

To put it simply, a successful team has quality forwards and dmen prospects, and if defense wins championships, how are you going to build a championship team if you always take forwards (bpa)? Via Trade - a hockey trade Sergachev - Drouin Jones - Johansen Myers - Kane All three trades involved a f...

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

Solid points overall, speaking of points that's Ben Hutton's bread and butter, now if Green just used Huts as a point producer in a run & gun style, used that way Huts is the type to have a breakout season points wise - he's at an age for that to happen.

Sure sure - I just loved it that you say 1 thing and he clearly provided a response that you were clearly wrong and the Genius even disagrees with you.

Re: Playoffs

Reefer contributing nothing as usual, reefer is the new drama queen of cc. 'Best player available' is never so cut and dry after the first 3 picks though, everything is open to interpretation, your draft list can be negotiated in the war room to the draft table. Sometimes a little shift to take a dm...

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

Yeah the Canucks need to address their smurf, gentleman lifestyle, anti-fighting personnel, I know Linden probably has cut off everyone's balls to be a low-key guy, but Jim Benning has to put his foot down and acquire a couple big gritty dudes who can UFC out there. The scary part of trading Hutton ...

Tom Wilson, TBL Paquette etc showing why you need some big gritty dudes with the tangibles to fight out a series, something analytics types wish they can measure in their stats, but never will. Even Jets and Vegas (Reaves) have some heavy hitters to help their depth and skill guys out. Meanwhile th...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

*shudders* at the thought of Sutter as the 2nd line center. :hmmm: He's the anti-passer, he can't setup his mates on the wing at all. I'd rather the SL mediocre ideal of signing Flip. I guess just to go against my post entirely, and everyone is against having Gagner as a placeholder on the 2nd line,...

Re: Sam Gagner #2C

I think I'd plan on giving Sam Gagner 2nd line center duties for the early 2018/19 season, as we are a rebuilding team, use what we got, don't overspend on a Bozak for example, and hey even Erik Haula of the Knights at 27 yrs old his hightest pt total was 34pts before he exploded with VK, not saying...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Who knows meds, LA may have no choice but to pay Doughty $10M-$11M per, he and Kopitar are their key pieces, they'll just really have to try to move some difficult NTC players by moving prospects/picks with em. I’d be down for Dustin brown +. They'll probably end moving one of Toffoli or Pearson an...
