Re: The Rebuild...

Two years: Gadjovich Pettersson Dahlen Baertschi Horvat Boeser Granlund Gaudette Virtanen Ericksson Sutter Lind Gaunce that is a lot of hoping and praying, certainly hope that isnt who you expect to be on the top line. Not to mention other than Juolevi there isn’t a single defenceman in the organiz...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

I’m ok with the trade as long as Jimbo keeps the rebuild going and acquires extra picks at the deadline. If they are a few points out and he plays the ‘we want to make the playoffs’ card refusing to trade some of the vets I reserve the right to lose it then, but for now not too concerned. Prepare t...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

I like the gamble but I'm thinking this player was going on waivers anyways. Ahhhh what the fuck just cough up a 4th. At least it isn't the standard 2nd or 3rd. Pedan is a warm body who can't skate backwards and turns like a bus. Lol some people thought he was gonna make it this year. He isn't an N...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

He was the consensus better player on every list. He was probably the best player on that Memorial Cul team outside of Marner. He plays with some edge, some chutzpah and he is a scorer. I know a lot of people on this board absolutely hate good hard nosed players ,but this team needs them. Tkachuk w...

Re: 2017 Development Camp

Kesler said when he left, even after Benning got aboard, that he did not want to stay for a rebuild and that he had been told by the Benning camp that they were rebuilding . It was his biggest reason for wanting to leave. So I really do think that one of the biggest challenges faced by Linden and B...

Re: 2017 Development Camp

Hey Esq we will have the only twins to each reach 1000 points on the same team. That's a record. And the Gretzky one shouldn't really count :mex: Yep - in Gretzky's era every team had a guy getting 100 points, save Vancouver but we were awful then too. Bernie Nicholls got 150 one year, Paul Coffey ...

Re: 2017 Development Camp

This guy would crucify the Pope himself... if the Pope were the GM during a rebuild . I do believe you would be right if said Pope (for nearly three years): a) Refused to admit the applicable team was in need of a rebuild; b) Made various trades and signings that were not in conformity with a "rebu...

Re: 2017 Canucks UFA signings

I'm very happy with all of the signings - good cap hits, good terms, no trade protection. Everyone I'm sure would like a mulligan on the Eriksson signing, but as Doc says he will be better next year, its a question of how much. Sutter's contract continues to look like fair market value, as the NHL ...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Juolevi, apparently, has just shown up tipping the scales at a little over 200 Lbs. Source ?? If so he's got 25 pounds on Brandon Sutter Benning today on SN "Juolevi just arrived for our development camp and he weighed in at 200 pounds. A year ago, he was 183; he added 17 pounds of muscle. He had t...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

That's a lot of dmen on the left side - Edler, Hutton, Del Zotto, Wiercioch, with Holm, Pedan and Juolevi knocking on the door. Lots of depth even though most are 4/5/6 guys. I don't hate any of these deals but to me it looks like more of being 'competitive' while waiting for the kids to develop. Ha...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

So these signings, if true, add just under 8 million to the cap. They give us more centre depth, more help on offence, help for the PP, and add experience. This certainly buys time for youth development but not with the Canucks. Wonder if any trade protection is involved. Yep exactly - development ...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Said it before but I'll say it again; Juolevi is going to come to camp and make it damned difficult. He'll be busting his ass to make it. Will be harder then people may think to predetermine his fate... I agree, just no spot for him now. He's a left side guy and there are already 3 left side guys i...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Friedman says $3 million x 3 years for Gagner, $3 million x 2 years for Del Zotto and Nilsson gets 2 years at $1.25 to $1.5 million. Burmistrov gets 1 year, $900k. I'd assume depth signings to come as well. I don't mind each of the signings in a vacuum, but so much for letting the kids develop - the...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

If the rumours of Gagner for 3 years are true that leaves Hank, Bo, Sutter and Gagner as centres. Gaunce as well but I assume he plays the wing. With Pettersson and Gaudette coming in do the Canucks know something about Hank we don't? Perhaps he's told them he's retiring after this year so the Nuck...
