Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

The descriptions of Boqvist sound more Duncan Keith like than Erik Karlsson like. Is it because Karlsson is a fellow Swede he gets compared to him? Just don't see us in the running for a top 4 pick, we are playing pretty decent enough to not be tanking like we are seeing with the Yotes, Sabres, Han...

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

My spidey senses tell me that Hutton gets traded in a "hockey trade". Benning and crew like Tanev too much and do you blame them. Hutton for a big bodied forward, this is has more to do with the possible graduation of 3 rookies next season and surrounding them with some sense of security I see Juol...

Re: Elephant in the Room - Trade the Sedins

His sophomore jinx was only point production. His intensity never waned. It's the intensity and fire that makes him a leader. Intensity doesn't mean much if the guy can't score or gets beaten/scored upon often in matchups. I don't recall Bo getting beaten individually in those matchups. His linemat...

Re: GDT 20-02-18: Canucks vs Avs

Ya know, there was no need to put the twins out there. Oh well, TG just learned his lesson. One would hope. As soon as Shorty announced that the Sedins were out for the first time at the 3:something mark of OT I was like.....and now we lose. It was a solid OT effort with the Canucks having the majo...

Re: Elephant in the Room - Trade the Sedins

Bo became the unofficial leader of this team during his rookie year when he was the only player to consistently play with maximum effort and excitement during the first round against the Flames. His game had some warts, but nobody looked like they wanted it more than him, and everyone took notice. ...

Re: Elephant in the Room - Trade the Sedins

I’m not sure I like the idea of Sutter, Eriksson and Del Zotto being the go-to mentors starting next fall. Another year under the Sedins would go a long way for Horvat and Boeser, IMO. On the flip side, we might be a point now where the twins are holding the kids back. The future leaders (BoHo + Br...

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

Canucks #1 goal now is to amp up the dmen prospects for the Canucks, the more options the better to get better on defense, besides the draft, next best option is college ufa dmen, as trades are hard to do and the bidding for UFA dmen is expensive . Lots of people don't understand that concept. :mrg...

GDT 20-02-18: Canucks vs Avs

Puck drops in 2 minutes. Good time for a GDT no? :P

Tonight's game.....honestly I don't give a shit. At this point Oilers are in the lottery mix and sure to take it. Just play an entertaining game.

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Some people can't handle a rebuild. That is why Genius Jim was extended and why Gudbranson was extended at an extremely fair price. For sheer ecstasy, flip Gudbranson to the Islanders for Calgary's 1st. LOL Only if Calgary misses and we can get their lottery pick. :lol: Or would that be more for hy...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Diehard, the Avalanche fixed their defence in one draft - Makar and Timins, and the Duschene trade - Girard. And don't forget the O'Reilly trade, Zadarov is playing good hockey finally. Anyhow, Benning can do a lot for this team's D with a top 10 pick in this draft and a high 2nd round pick. Unlike...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Isn't the CBA up after his second year? Means he's leaving less on the table in the event of a lockout. I've been eying that CBA expiry and wondering if that is impacting owners on locking up the lame duck management around the league. What are you pondering in regards to how locking up the managem...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Yeah, he did sign for less then I thought he would. Love the no trade protection too. Surprised Benning got that. The truly surprising thing was the back diving real dollars in the final year. Makes no sense over a 3 year term for a player that young. I mean it makes sense for the team. He becomes ...
