Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate! (And personal insult thread)

Agreed. Even if the team went out next game and played .800 hockey to end the year it's still a season where too many teams have under performed. And let's be honest, the Canucks need to play at that level to hit 93 points, which would be tied for the third lowest points total to land a wild card sp...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

He might have done it as well as it could be done, but it was a foolish plan that cost them resources and time on the real rebuild. So in your opinion your Vancouver Canucks led by a new young core could have been fighting a playoff spot at the deadline ... years earlier? :eh: I guess Ronning's Gho...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

the rebuild that they were attempting, one that tries to remain competitive and has roster players who are vets that can help show kids what it takes to play in the NHL and are still of an age that they might be useful pieces when the team is winning again. And this, this "re-tool on the fly" conce...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Meds, Gudbranson, Sutter and Eriksson are a bottom pairing D and two third liners. They are being paid gobs of money and big assets were shipped out for Sutter and Guddy. These three should cost about 8 million total st best. These acquisitions and others( Schaller) speak to the state of the pro sc...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Gudbranson trade, Sutter trade, Eriksson are not rebuild moves. I had a pm with another poster at the time. We were both laughing at the guzzlers attempts to pawn those moves off as part of a rebuild. For awhile we dismissed it as trolling. Now it’s pretty clear these posters arent quite that craft...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Eriksson shouldn’t have been signed- 6 million Keep McCann, draft Debrincat and sign Polack, savings of 2 million. Do not make Bonino trade and flog him for picks/prospects. Had two years to do it. Probably saving 8-10 million on the cap and the team would be better. You’re welcome :mex: Can't real...

Re: LOL

Is there seriously a group of gillis people still active? Its been 5 fuckin years Yet here a few posters blame every wrong on him. That’s just it. At what point is this Elmer’s team? Next year it can’t not be Elmer’s team. I think Edler is the last contract standing that has Gillis’ signature on it.

Does Brockey_Hockey have any skill other than his shot? We got him 23rd overall. The fact that we picked up a guy that low in the first round who has the potential to notch 40 goals a year for us, yeah, I'd say that even IF that's all he's got we should be thrilled. This is the same poster who thin...

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Ducks Feb 13/19 7:30 pm SN

Just saw the hit by Getzlaf on Jake. This will Be telling about the league’s legitimacy when it comes to discipline and player safety. Bottom line: That was a blindside hit with the head being the primary point of contact.....and Jake wasn’t even close to sniffing the puck. Should be a suspension. I...

Re: GDT: Sharks @ Canucks Feb 11/19 7:00 pm SN

So due to an unforeseen set of circumstances, a rookie from Jr gets put in net against a good team. Boo-fucking-Hoo. The kid got a jump start on his NHL career. He got to hang with the team and see what's expected of a pro. He got an early look at NHL shooters. He's seen the NHL lifestyle. He got s...

Re: GDT: Sharks @ Canucks Feb 11/19 7:00 pm SN

Carter Hart is only 5 months older!!! Dipietru had almost no lead time. This ugly loss is not on him, it's on the piss poor performance of the team. Sure he was nervous. Who wouldn't be! It's not fair to say, "the kids not ready", not fair at all. He's played in important games before. Not in the N...
