Re: Mick's thread full of links CLICK AT YOUR OWN PERIL

Its a conspiracy to allow Chicago to draft 1 OA. :mrgreen: OMG though, losing to Minny and hoping we got the 1 OA would be assume but since we don't know who it was.....we could lose to Minny and find out it wasn't us in any event. So is team tank going to come back and argue we should lose to Minny...

Re: 2019-20 NHL Playoffs

Does the NHL want the wrath of Trump if they pick 2 Canadian hubs? You know he would go on the attack and start to urge people to not watch, who needs hockey anyway? As far as viewership, if its the only game in town, cities with teams in the mix will have viewers no matter where the games are playe...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Baertschi wants back in the NHL. So far no one has offered anything for him or plucked him off waivers. A mutual termination of contract sets him free to pursue whatever options he wants, but given his history his agent should be screaming at him to not be stupid. But it would solve one problem and ...

Re: Judd Brackett is history

Well if we're speculating, Brackett probably wanted my picks over Bennings'. We all liked the Virtanen and the Juolevi picks, but we would have gotten Necas over Petterson, Dobson over Hughes and Knight over Podkolsin. Just think how much further ahead the team would be. Too true CP. I know that I ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Very real possibility that the NCAA cancels its entire season next year. Already Canadian universities are clawing back on athlectic scholarships as they will not start leagues this fall and probably not for the winter session either. Looking like Canadian universities will sacrifice entire athletic...

What he said Micky was "Whether it’s one year or many years (on the next contract), I’d love to play my whole career here. Who knows what’s going to happen?"

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Having him say whether its one year or more......the guy gets it. Take a one year deal leading up to the expansion draft. That allows us to not use a spot to protect him as an UFA. It allows us to protect someone else. Thats a team guy who wants to be here. So a one year deal with a handshake and a ...

Re: NHL Season suspended - Now what?

I read an article last week, I'm trying to find it, that basically said that Trump had conversations with all the different leagues; NHL, NBA, MLB, NFL. The MLB and NBA only have one Canadian team each so when they reopen it will all be US based. The NFL, no brainer, all US based. But Bettman wanted...

Re: Judd Brackett is history

Brackett scouted some damn fine prospects that went the college route. He will be missed in rounds 3-7 but he was not the only voice in those rounds. Our overall drafting has improved, night and day, to what we had under Gillis or Nonis. Burkie got some right but not so much in the later rounds. I t...

Re: Judd Brackett is history

Doyle is shitting his pants with the loss of Brackett as he was led to believe he was the Messiah when in fact he was everything but when it comes to key players we’ve drafted like Pettersson (Delorme), Hughes ((Weisbrod), Boeser (Johnson etc). Doyle stop listening to the Botchford Radicals over th...

Re: Judd Brackett is history

Most GMs want a say in the 1 round pick and in some cases the 2. This is not unusual. For Brackett to want complete autonomy over those picks is rather mind boggling. And there is no question that through rounds 3-7 we have had some stellar picks but not all of those were Brackett finds. Also no que...
