I would assume they’d need to be not just clinging to a wildcard spot for management to be buyers. I would also think it won’t be pure free agent rentals.
Fortunately, Roussel is not the GM.

But, as a message about confidence in this group to his teammates, I like it.

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Ohhh this is beautiful, leaves only have a 2 point cushion on the 12nd wild card spot.

Buffalo is within striking distance now, if they make up 6 points, they're in and Toronto is out.

Who goes first, Dubas or Babcock?

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

I don't get having Kero up. I know there's not a lot of love for Gaunce, but he has a better ppg than Kero and is 2 years younger. I know there's more to hockey than that, but still... I’m sure this is just pressbox duty, it gives Kero some extra cash as well, gaunce is better served playing with t...

Re: OOTS 2018-2019

Looking at the standings, this is not a good year to be in the tank.

LA, Philedelphia, and two NY teams are in the bottom-5. I would not like our odds in that lottery.

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

I think Jake, deep down, is an asshole.

I think the coaches have spent 4 years trying to get that out of him and make him a smarter player, and hopefully it makes him a smarter asshole.

Well, if Biech can't keep it straight, I don't see how the nlheck the rest of us are supposed to.

Can't trust trudeau I mean GM's all the time though.
I think there'll be a bidding war for Ferky, and no way should the Canucks wade into one of those.

I don't know anything about any of these clowns except the floppy-shoed Pratt, and only because he used to post here.
OK, I've been wondering this for years - is this true? The real, big-fat David Pratt was posting here under his own name?

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Then heres to seeing him next fall. :cheers: Well I could foresee us protecting Hughes, Juolevi, and Tryamkin Ryan Biech is an astute hockey fella and reads all the CBA, NHL rules yada yada, he says Hughes will not have to be protected if he plays under 11 games THIS NHL season. So that's my story ...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

I don't recall Botchford ever cooking up a rumour that was corroborated by anybody or turned out to be true. I've always figured he's as "insider" as Garrioch, and tries to make himself part of the story.

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Halford and Brough are the best show going IMO, but I have to switch it off whenever they bring that wiener Botchford on. I have zero interest in that guy's opinion.

On the plus side, since Botchford left the Province, I can actually read that paper again!

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Yeah those trades are all over the place, it's impossible to determine what a trade+buyout of Marleau might cost the Leaves. Also, none of the guys you mention were on 35+ contracts, and all of them had most of their salary paid by insurance. My 35+ Malakhov comparison was from 12 years ago, so not...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

The only similar deal I can recall is when Joisy traded Malakhov + 1st to the Sharks for 2 nobodies (dumps). You got me, I had no memory of that player or that trade. I guess that was in the flurry of weird things Lou did to get under the Cap - hard to believe NJ was once one of the biggest-spendin...
