Re: Boeser, Brock

Blake Price basically got the Boeser for Dumba trade up and running, then it developed a life of its own. Shameful journalism, he’s such a douche. Boeser isn’t being traded, ffs. Oh come on man. It wasn't "journalism", no one said or predicted it would happen. It was speculation and radio talk fodd...

Re: All or None of the big three UFAs?

Otherwise trade his rights to a team that covets him for a conditional pick. I hate to be that guy, but that kind of conditional pick no longer exists. https://www.nhl.com/devils/news/feature-breaking-down-the-mou/c-317420014 Okay I lied, I love being that guy...

Re: All or None of the big three UFAs?

None....just Petro ;) https://i.makeagif.com/media/6-25-2018/z8xGZE.gif I will say that I don't disagree with you Brownie. Everyone knows that you need to have some top players on cheap contracts to really do damage in the cap era. It really limits the window, and while it creates parity it really ...

Re: 2020 NHL OFFSEASON

If team budgets are being cut as much as some say, it sounds like there will be some surprising RFAs not qualified and many UFAs not signed. The market may get quite flooded. The big issue with small NHL team budgets for the Canucks is that not many teams are going to be taking bad contracts off Be...

Per, do you know why spousal abuse is on the rise?

Because they JUST DONT LISTEN!
Are you saying that because Per can't figure out why he has two black eyes?

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

What a colossal fuckup by the Blues. There was no reason to make the trade for Faulk in the first place. And no reason to sign Faulk to that terrible contract. Should have re-upped the captain during the past season and dangled Parayko for futures help if they needed to clear salary. Brown Lizzy we...

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

And this Health-health tradeoff point can be made more simply. Do you think there would be excess deaths compared to last year if there was no covid but you shut down or limited “voluntary” health procedures (diagnostic and preventative), people were discouraged from seeking medical treatment, face...

OK, here is a comparisson of excess deaths and official covid death toll in various countries: https://www.economist.com/graphic-detail/2020/07/15/tracking-covid-19-excess-deaths-across-countries If you scroll down to the chart you can see that between March 8th and Aug 1st some 152,000 Americans d...

Re: I used to frequent this board back in the day -- I have some questions

Wonder what really happened to Arachnid. We fought like crazy. He was like the guy that kept throwing me in the water till I finally learned how to swim. Doubt if we'd fight much now. Some of those scraps were like even timed, strategized, but sometimes spontaneous. People were almost trying to get...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

So whats the word on Markstrom? Anyone else getting the sense that the team may be preparing to let him price himself out of town? It would surely be one way to relieve the cap pressure while retaining TT and CT. Hell they can likely retain Jake and add a piece if they let marky walk. Whats the loc...

Vegas Knights were spent. They had F**k-all left for Dallas after their five games in seven nights vs the Canucks.
They looked tired to me.
They ran out of anabolics
And Demko was still living rent free in their heads. Even DeBoer said as much. :P

It's a mistake, but not an accidental one.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Would you deal Virtanen for a young good prospect Right Dman? I'd be interested in that, especially we re-sign Toffoli and increase our RW depth in the process. It's a thought but how how much of a prospect? Almost ready to play NHL hockey or a year or so away? Also have to keep in mind that Jake b...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

They weren't batting so good with Americans either until Kesler and Schneider but I'm sure glad that didn't impact their selection and the subsequent selections of Hughes, Boeser, and Demko. With the exception of Hodgson, none of those other players were anywhere near as highly regarded as Podkolzi...
