Re: LOL

The only Benning trade I was instantly unhappy with was the Forsling trade, even though I understood the reasoning. I was disappointed in the Kesler return but couldn't fault Benning. I was disappointed in the Garrison return but couldn't fault Benning. I was real happy with the Gudbranson trade. I...

Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate! (And personal insult thread)

I like the job Benning has done but it’s not worthy of GM of the year.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

He might have done it as well as it could be done, but it was a foolish plan that cost them resources and time on the real rebuild. So in your opinion your Vancouver Canucks led by a new young core could have been fighting a playoff spot at the deadline ... years earlier? :eh: I guess Ronning's Gho...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Even I have had broken ribs! All the more amazing Virtanen finished the game. Must have been some good drugs. My experience is cracked or bruised it’s not till the next day the pain really starts... I’ve finished pitching a game after landing on a ball in my rib cage and the next day coughing makes...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Gadjovich has 2 goals this season in the AHL He's on a 5 goal pace though He’s learnin’ the ropes. He’ll be a gooder. For sure he has to improve his skating. But he also has to learn how to play against men. Not an easy transition for the man-child. Sounds like he's figuring it out. But his ice tim...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Seriously wondering what they're going to do with Goldobin. Are his point because he's had the opportunity to play with the best on the team? Ya, I think maybe so. He is crafty and "at times", a good playmaker. The shit defensive play and "Who the hell was that pass for" stuff is most likely never ...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

No surprise Brisbois sent down. But that leaves Hutton and Pouliot on the left. Gudbranson, Stetcher, Biega and Schenn are righties. Does that put Schenn on the left?

ZMac looks to be the odd man out right now. And Schaller of course.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

It's certainly the best crop of prospects the Canucks have had since I've been following the team, circa 1990. When I look over the list I see potential on D but still a few impact years away. Hughes, Juolevi, Woo, Rathbone. Two lefties, two righties. I see a load of potential in the bottom 6, maybe...

This week’s short prospect update.

Take notice Hughes only has 4 regular season games left in his season and looking like no big playoffs. We could see him real soon.

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Nikita Tryamkin; http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=159881 Look at the drop-off this year, but in particular, the drop in penalty minutes. This is not over. Will it be if Goldobin gets the boot? Ya, it shouldn't matter, but it does because if nothing else, he should be worth someth...

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

If Benning could come up with a hockey trade that doesn’t involve draft picks I’d love to take a chance on him. Yeah, maybe. The environment in Edmonton has been toxic so it is really hard to tell. HEY PER !! I just saw you in the game forum. What do you think of the idea of the Canucks acquiring J...

After tonight’s game Green has his justifications to put Schenn and Spooner in. Biega with a big fart and ZMac benched in the third.

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Sharks - Feb 16 - 7pm CBC. SN

Example of another game we could have won. One bad mistake at the wrong time. At least Calgary fans won’t like it.
