Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

ummm excuse me Flames you guys are supposed to be competing for McDavid, now here you are beating the Blackhawks with awesome goaltending. :hmmm: Just goes to show that any team can win a game against any opponent in the NHL. Except for the Oilers that team fucking suuuuuucks... 23 goals against in...

Re: Young Stars Tourney

One of my favourites is Burrowing Owl. They are a little pricey compared to others in the area, but certainly much better than that ridiculous Mk'Mip or whatever. What a hose job of a "destination" winery that is... I grew up in Summerland, and have been more than spoiled by incredible wines from al...

Re: Forwards - 2014/15

I'd have asked for a do-over on letting Santorelli go. I dunno if it is just a bit of Kool-Aid talking from back in the early season last year... but I think the guy is a fire cracker and completely pumped to play in his hometown. This was a mistake I think. I'd give Hansen until Christmas to reboun...

Re: THE 2015 NHL Entry Draft Thread (McDavid, Eichel et al.)

Acquiring Kane worries me in that passing on him means we risk missing out on a guy who could completely take off and be our leading scorer for a decade, and getting him risks bringing in a huge locker room virus that never pans out... for wayyy too much in return.

Re: THE 2015 NHL Entry Draft Thread (McDavid, Eichel et al.)

I am highly reluctant to consider someone like Evander Kane over a 1st round pick in any draft, let alone the projected talent available in 2015. Evander Kane (so far) is this, IMO: - A streaky, standout player on a bad team - in a weak division, in a weak conference. - An obvious locker room cancer...

Re: CANUCKS SIGN RYAN MILLER

Teams I think are on par (give or take 5 points in the standings) or worse (on paper) than the Canucks right now: Edmonton Calgary Arizona *(I will screw this up about 846 times over the next year) Nashville Columbus Winnepeg New Jersey New York Islanders Carolina Florida Ottawa "Maybe's" (likely be...

Re: Forwards - 2014/15

on a couple of players... Hansen - I get he's tough to play against, but we find him in too many prime scoring situations and he botches literally 95% of them. If Hansen had any touch at all he would perenially compete for the team's highest scorer. I think if we had to trade he or Chris Higgins... ...

Re: July 1, 2014, (and beyond) trades, signings , rumours

Wow start carrying umbrellas and gumboots. What a bunch of whiners! There are bound to be some teams dumping salary and we don't have to pay a 37 year old guy 16 mil over 3 years. Benning has positioned this team so that we have a lot of cap space. I think he did it for a reason. Unless of course L...

Can we start coming up with clever slogans for writing off the season for Connor McDavid? Edmonton got so many easy ones... Yeah pretty sure McJesus goes to one of Buffalo/Edmonton/Calgary. And yeah we should probably wait until October before dreaming up any slogans. :thumbs: C'mon, its not very V...

Glad Iginla signed there for that money. Not like he'll win a Cup with that crew, but oh well. Not sure what is left in terms of 2nd line scoring help, but God knows Benning may be thinking/praying it comes from within. The more I think about it... the more this looks like a heavy investment in Lac...

Hiller to Flames $4.5M and 2 years. Ha! Beat you this time :mrgreen: Damnit!!! Here' the deal, lady: you focus on getting us the inside dirt on Iginla and wether or not Miller has an NTC, I'll worry about posting universally available information as fast as possible. K? :lol: Done! I hear he's choo...

I would rather have had that contract.
I agree with that. He is a workhorse... and a cheaper (arguable better) fit for a team in our position)

Re: CANUCKS SIGN RYAN MILLER

Sorry Doc, I'll turf my thread.

Food For Thought: Would Vancouver's "rebuild" with Miller in net look like Calgary's "rebuild" with Kipper in net? (ie. Limbo for a decade) I hope not.

Re: July 1, 2014, (and beyond) trades, signings , rumours

Miller to Vancouver 3 years at 6 per Not sure how I like that term. Woulda preferred 2 years. Likely wins us just enough games to finish 10th in the West. I don't know about that...I think in terms of Goalie contracts, 3 is pretty reasonable. I like definitive solutions, and even if Miller is not a...
