Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Doughty will get more than 10 True, I'm guessing he'll demand around $11M per, maybe then LA will scoff at that & trade him, having over an 1/8th of a teams cap on one player is pretty hard to manage. I suspect we are going to see a change in the way teams do business with star players, if not now ...

Anders Nilsson is a WORLD CHAMPION.

Trade him for a 1st rounder.
That would be genius-level asset management.
His stock definitely has gone up. I suppose there's a chance we could get a 6th for him instead of a 7th now.

Re: Playoffs

They’ve earned some of the whacks they get Maybe but not in this case Ultimately it wasn’t a great trade. Yes Kesler tied their hands but it’s a pretty underwhelming return at the end of the day. But you have a handful of posters had to tell us how amazing Sbisa is for the last few years when the e...

Re: Playoffs

Starting in round 2 against the Predators, the Jets seemed to have trouble finding their legs at times. The best they often mustered was 40 minutes of great hockey.....those 40 minutes saw a very scary looking team. As you say Vic, massive props to Gallant obviously, unreal job he's done. But Fleury...

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. However..... https://www.nbcchicago.com/blogs/madhouse-enforcer/marian-hossa...

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...
