Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Hossa announces retirement. https://www.tsn.ca/report-chicago-forward-hossa-retires-due-to-health-problems-1.1089947 I believe the Luongo Rule will hit the Blackhawks to the tune of $4.25M in recapture for the next 3 years.

Re: Playoffs

I love that the Sharks are out. Now Vegas can come back to earth and recognize their place in the grand scheme of things. An expansion team. Shhshshsh The way I see it, one team from the West is going to have a chance to win their first Cup before the canucks do. I’d rather it be Winnipeg, but won’...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Yeah... and once again Skyo ignores reality in the trade market (fair enough, pipe dreams and all). We wouldn't trade for Karlsson if he didn't have an extension in place. If he had an extension in place, he would cost us (at least) one of Horvat, Boeser, Petterssen and then some. You're filling on...

Re: Playoffs

Sharks looked to have adjusted their defensive game against Vegas. Didn’t give them room on the rush and zone entries, forced a ton of dump and chase. The ice looked shitty. Jones very good. Lucky at times as Vegas didn’t get bounces at all, but terrific poise and efficiency tonight. He’s a really g...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Here’s a question rooted in hypotheticals... IF Pettersson makes the team next year as a center, would you trade Loui to Edmonton straight up for Lucic? I realize Milan is a slug by comparison, but he would add a large measure of protection for Elias and Brock. He may have had a shitty season, but I...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Not too bad an idea really is it, subject to getting a pretty nice sweetener. He does have a big cap hit but it’s only three years. Still like to move Eriksson though. Next year perhaps. July 2nd. To Arizona, Edmonton, Montreal, New Jersey, or Carolina. All of them either budget teams or destinatio...

Re: Draft Lottery Winner

As for Tkachuk vs Juolevi pick, I don't see the Flames ripping it up, and Juolevi is coming onto the team exactly when the Canucks need a influx of quality dmen prospects. The Flames poor season has little to do with Tkachuk. It was a mistake. I think Elmer would admit that..Either way Olaf needs t...

Linden on record saying this could be a good year for the Canucks to trade down and still get who they want.

Re: Draft Lottery Winner

The real question now is whether or not Elmer trades down..... The other question: Does Ottawa talk to Buffalo. Karlsson + 4th overall for the 1st + _______? Why would we trade down meds? The big talents in this draft are gone in the top 3. If someone comes along and wants to make a deal that makes...

Re: The Rebuild...

Benning is a genius, he signed Gagner last summer as a way to get to his buddy Tavares Can you only imagine how he would fire up this fan base. Is there any smoke to this or is it more wishful thinking than... If he came and Dahlin came and Tryamkin came back. I’d blow Don Cherry’s dog Looks like y...

Re: The Rebuild...

I would honestly rather have a top line centre and let Bo carry the second line. I know he’s our heir apparent for number one centre but I think he’s better suited to the number two spot. I’ve always thought this way about Bo. I think he’s the heir apparent for the captaincy, but he would be an ama...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

If we aren’t picking Dahlin then next up take the Russian. This team can’t score it’s way out of a paper bag (aside from Boeser), and speed is needed. We have enough players who have shown they can be leaders in other areas, so I would see a player like him being an addition like Kucherov or Kessel,...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

At 28 years old, he [Andersen] is in his prime, and based on the past two playoff seasons, he has defined himself as a very good goalie in the regular season who falls off a little or a lot in the post-season when the competition gets tougher. - Damien Cox Doc, do you have your hand up Damien’s ass...
