Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Points pctg. is the bar to look at. Some teams have played 20 games. Other have played 12 or 13. Overall standings are a poor barometer. Vancouver has one of the worst points pctgs. so far. Don’t think I’d be throwing too many rocks. Totally fair point, however one small factor in the Canucks' favo...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Anyone following the latest garbage in the desert? Coyotes apparently struggling to pay bills, are being investigated for a workplace sexual harassment issue, have the owner's son watching youtube and calling the shots on hockey ops...then Bill Armstrong has the good sense to threaten TheAthletic's ...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Even though I don't listen to TEAM, that's still sad = I was hoping TSN would hang on to break Rogers' awful media exclusivity deal and go back to proper media competition, but instead its a race to the bottom with worse coverage, more centralized/Toronto media sucking all the air out of the room.

Re: Trade Rumours & Armchair Pipe Dreams 20-21 Sponsored by SKYO

I am starting to become very ambivalent about this season. If they fire Green, they fire him. If they don't, they don't. Same with Benning and the same with making any trades. This appears to be a lost season, oh well. What a train wreck it has been. They lose 3/4 to Calgary and there will be a mel...

Re: Trade Rumours & Armchair Pipe Dreams 20-21 Sponsored by SKYO

No offence, but why would the Rags take Loui, if they can simply buy out Deangelo and -not- have Loui?? Apparently the Rangers can't buy him out or something. I dunno. Maybe because they are carrying 5 buyouts right now? One is Brad Richards who costs nothing but counts on the list for another 4 se...

Re: Trade Rumours & Armchair Pipe Dreams 20-21 Sponsored by SKYO

So, Deangelo clears waivers. Nobody is taking NYR's problem child, with 2 years on his deal at $4.9 mil. How much of a sweetener would it take to send Loui the other way? On the plus side, Loui would certainly not have the Rags on his no-trade list. The big plus for the Canucks is the ability to buy...

Might as well, it's going to be a late-1st anyways!

Seattle gets a pick this year right? So we'll pick somewhere between 20 and 32.

Meg, you got mad when I didn't tell you last time I saw your avatar on tv, so here you go - I've got a channel called kvosdt3, aka MeTV, they are playing Cannon at 3am every night this week. I've got the 2-part pilot set to record, Friday and Saturday :mex:

Maybe that's a systems thing?
Maybe everything is.
I think we've been through a quite lengthy stretch where you could legitimately put some blame on the personnel.

But then again, last night we had Schmidt and Chatfield replacing Tanev and Stecher...and have dressed 9 d in 10 games...

You cant even target the personnel either as we added one of the better 2 way dmen in the league but he looks just as fucked as the rest of them. What the hell are Green and Bumgartner doing?

Markeau was signed by Lou...And he's gone.
Yep, Lou is gone:

Gone to a great, storied franchise with a history of glory, gone back to winning playoff series, gone back to a golden era before Tavares came along to pout and drag yet another franchise down into mediocrity.
