Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Picking a RHD would allow us to consider moving Tanev, perhaps not this year but next, or at the TDD if we fall out of it again. I’m assuming that that pick likely won’t be too impactful, if at all, for the Canucks this upcoming season. Picking a LW shores up a need in our top six. To me though pick...

Re: WC 2018

So we beat Russia to go onto the semifinals. Shocker was Switzerland beat Finland so we play them next, winner goes onto the gold medal game! Meanwhile, USA and Sweden playoff in a semifinal as well. After Finland beat Canada and the U.S. in the preliminary round. I would have offered long odds aga...

Hard to believe that’s the best we could do in net.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Lee Powell@st Lee Powell@st @leepowellST Pettersson thumb injury said to require "minor surgery", should be back to full training within a month, still seems like Canuck luck, was starting to come on in the tourney, don't often see a thumb injury in collision with post, usually it's from a slash. Un...

Winnipeg looked ordinary tonight. Vegas looked good.

Re: Playoffs

The Caps are looking good. Make Tampa look like minor leaguers. Playing out to be Winnipeg vs Washington in the finals. Early days I know but both teams looking good.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Where did you hear this? He looked passable in garbage time I guess. Then again pretty much anyone does when the competition is Hutton, Biega, Pouliott and Stecher. Don’t remember where I read it but it was just after end of year pressers. Benning was quoted as saying they wanted to make room for S...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

The guy the Canucks really want to make room for next season is Sautner. They believe he showed enough to show he was ready for the NHL plus his waiver status next season, and well I’ll be amazed if Hutton survives. I liked what I saw from Sautner, albeit a small sample. I thought he played better e...

Re: Playoffs

Wasn’t sure who I would be cheering for, Tampa/Washington, but I find myself cheering for Washington. As usual I need to wait for the puck to drop to see where my head is at.

Go Caps Go!!!!!

Re: Playoffs

Winnipeg looks like the team to beat going forward. Out of the four teams left, Las Vegas, Washington, Tampa and Winnipeg, the Jets are the heavy team.

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

The university teams will be a challenge. You know every guy on those teams is going to want to show up/smash up some hot, highly rated NHL prospect. They could be nasty games. But good shooters should dominate. It makes sense to rotate the tourney but it’s the way Baby Burke moaned about it that n...

Why isn’t Luca Sbisa playing?

I remember a few Klowns on here yarding on their dinks about how he was a top 4 d man. Yet he can’t get in the lineup. Is he hurt or just shitty?

He’s played the last two games, after coming off and injury. Is he a scratch tonight?

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

Really the biggest knock I heard on Kane is this. He has chip on his shoulder and sees racism in a lot of things. He can take exception fast. Ok a couple of things. He’s cocky and arrogant to a fault but most of that seemed to stem from his early twenties and immaturity. He can’t hold his alcohol. H...
