Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

So, Boeser for 5.8, or Mitch the Bitch at almost 11?!? One guy is on a term twice as long. If Boeser averages 35-40 goals he will likely hit 10 on his next deal Well so long as it's 40 goals that's cool. Marner has maxed out at 26 so far playing with top talent. 40 goals and 70 points is worth more...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Good for the team cap situation this year. That is a high salary for only three years. Not a steal at all for Benning, but he wasn’t bent over either. But they could regret not getting him for 8x8m if they could have. Are you kidding this is a huge steal! 2 yrs of rfa control with only a 7.5 QOat t...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

I'm getting a good laugh out of the headlines about this that are heralding that the Leave's contention window is now wide open indefinitely. Unless they get some miraculous and immediate development out of a few of their young defensemen, that window is for 2019-20 and maybe 2020-21. Once they lose...

If Jake can’t prepare for an nhl season after all this time he needs to go. What an idiot
If that's indeed the case it is time to part ways with him.

Re: Training Camp - 2019

I should clarify that my comments about Benning and Boeser's situation are because I believe it will be magnified by the fact that this would be the first season since Brock turned pro that he could come to camp healthy and in a state of conditioning that reflects his readiness as a pro. The first s...

Re: Training Camp - 2019

Benning made moves and left himself with less than $5M of space to sign his best winger. If Benning was sitting on $8M of space and Brock was unsigned then yeah. On the player. But to suggest that Boeser and his agent are unjustly holding out at this point when Benning can’t offer more than $4M and...

Re: Training Camp - 2019

Boeser being fully healthy and in shape and not at camp is looking like shit on Benning. He’s gonna have to pay another pick out to move someone now. Hindsight would suggest that Brock should have been priority one. If Brock was the only RFA holding out, yeah, it would look bad. With most of the RF...

Remember Louis Eriksson's first shift as a Canuck? The most ominous precursor in a first game ever. Those days are over.
No. What happened?

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

What would a guy like Toews know? The Chef has already said Horvat won’t be the captain and has referred to him as a 3rd line centre before. Said it’s not his team. Chef Boi isn’t afraid of being politically incorrect. Horvat is the safe decision. Pettersson is the right decision. And you are a guy...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I can’t see Brock Boeser being named the captain. This will end up being Pettersson’s team he’s too good and too competitive. Nobody hates losing or making mistakes more than Pettersson. Absolute warrior. Horvat C Edler A (Sutter/Beagle/Myers) A 2022 & beyond. Petey A Hughes A I could see Brock get...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

If Mgmt/Coach felt strongly about naming Horvat the captain they would have done it already. The stalling screams “not sold on Bo as our Captain”. Is Boeser more of a unifier than Bo? Is Pettersson’s work ethic and compete level, lead by example make him captain material. It’s not cut n dry Bo’s te...

Marner's agent going to let the Zurich Lions of the Swiss League assist in leveraging Dubas. Nice.

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

One thing, if nothing else, that you have to absolutely respect about this here Canucks message board is the outright undeniably supreme ability to derail any thread regardless of the topic. It's truly an art form unto itself.

2) How about updating this site with a more modern forum experience? Welcome! I'll be honest, this is the only message board I use, so I have no idea what a modern forum experience would entail. That being said, in the trade-off between more features and a faster-loading site, I'm a big fan of how ...
