Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 16-17 Sponsored by SKYO

With Dallas/Nill saying #3 pick is available, it seems like Tanev plus taking on Lehtonen's salary could be the core of a deal that has the #3 pick coming our way. They have to dump one of those goalie salaries, and Tanev seems a perfect fit for the Stars in age, quality and contract. Deal may well ...

Re: The Rebuild...

With Bishop going to Dallas, they now have to move one of Niemi or Lehtonen. Both have 1 year left on their deals. Perfect situation for the Canucks to forget about Miller if the Stars will give up a decent pick, maybe 2nd round, to take one of these two contracts off their hands so they can sign Bi...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Tryamkin likely has many reasons he wanted to leave, but when I heard Willie D throw him under the bus after the Bruins game - when the top players were nothing short of shit - I could only imagine Tryamkin, if he got it translated, said fuck this. It was the low point of Willie Mumbles Canucks tenu...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Seeing Gudbranson not clearing out smaller guys like Pirri in front of the net on the Rangers 3rd goal was pretty dismaying. It was supposed to be his primary contribution - "you have one job!" but both Rangers stood there, unbothered, and Pirri was able to score. If they could move Gudbranson that ...

Re: Time for a prediction thread

Injuries always happen, and so when the team itself admits not getting into injury trouble is key to a playoff run I think that's the red flag right there. Even if everything breaks right for them, they're still likely not good enough to make the playoffs, and how many times does everything break ri...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Crazy trades. Gudbranson really does look better. The Subban-Weber deal is way worse. Larsson could turn out to be a consistent top 2 for Edmonton and Hall can be injury prone, so that could, maybe (although still terrible right now) work out. But freaking Weber for Subban, age, contract terms, nuts...

Re: 2016 Free Agent Hunt

7 for 7 for Lucic, no way. I still see Okposo as the diamond in the rough here. Not that he'd come cheap, but he fills a lot of needs and can be obtained on more reasonable terms than that. He may have no interest in Van, can't argue with that, but I'm pleased Lucic seems to be looking elsewhere, an...

Re: 2016 Free Agent Hunt

Hey, I'm all in on Stamkos if Benning can pull it off. Guys like Stamkos simply do not come available all that often. I'd be pissed if Benning wasn't making a push. I'd be giddy if he could pull off punting Sbisa and Burrows while bringing in Stamkos and Lucic/Eriksson. Realistically though, our ch...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

Got a little update on the Gudbranson deal. The Canucks had been searching hard, for 2-3 weeks, to try to land a top four RHS Dman. We know the price was high including for FA. Benning wanted to stay away from some of the FA because he could not get permission to speak to their agents. After many d...

Would you trade a 3rd for Yakupov?

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15-16

I wonder what Dallas would cough up for Hamhuis. The Stars can score like crazy but their goals against and PK and bottom half of the league. The Stars are on the cusp of being able to make a run at it, and DH could help with some veteran stability on defense.

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Fact - currently as of Dec 15, if all the teams below the Nucks won their games in hand the Nucks will finish 29th. HELLO top 5 pick. Yes, bottom 5 seems eminently doable, and I think we can be worse! Even at 5th worst we get a 8.5% shot at Matthews, and the 30th team is now reduced to a 20% chance...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Whatever they do, I hope it is nothing to improve this year. Lose for Matthews is the most hopeful way to see things now. We need to take a shot at getting that 1C to take over from Hank. tank tank tank...I didn't think we'd be in that game at the start of the year, but we are for sure...TL has to t...
