Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

] Hoffman isn’t as good as any of those players... not even close. Not to mention he had a major shitcloud hanging over him... but please carry on. Karlsson is a top 10 player in the game and Stone is better than Skinner ( who will return a 1st if Buffalo sucks) Hoffman is almost exactly as good as...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Ottawa, though they’ve made some dumb mistakes isn’t in near as bad of shape as a lot of people think. They have three major pieces to move that they could get a ton back for in EK, Stone and Duchene. That return looks like three 1sts, and four or five high end prospects/young players imho. I humbl...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Hughes was a good pick but the Canucks didn’t fill their two biggest needs for prospect depth. They still need a top line left winger and a top pairing right shot defenseman. If they could trade next years 1st and other assets for Brady Tkachuk and Noah Dobson, they should. Why would NYI and Ottawa...

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

Baertschi will have to have a MASSIVE upswing to his game. IMO, he is a 40-45 point guy. The weak link on our first line. If Goldobin comes to camp with consistency in his work ethic, he can challenge for that first line winger spot - he has the skill set (and in fantasy land, so could Virtanen).. ...

Re: The Rebuild...

Who here thinks it’s a good thing we actually have enough decent young players that it’s possible we may lose some for nothing on waivers? I’m loving it. I don’t see any decent young players being lost on waivers I would take a Frankie Corrado as the high-point of players lost on waivers. Not good ...

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

^This. If any of these underachievers turn a corner it would make somewhat of a difference. 2+ of them blossoming would make the canucks a darkhorse...provided EP and Dahlen translate their euro success to the NHL I am 100% with Micky - the void left by the Sedins will be filled by someone, and I c...

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

Trouba gets 1-year, $5.5 million in arbitration. After a "marathon" arbitration arson session, they just literally split the difference! :lol: I had thought there was a rule that a player isn't tradeable after the team accepts the arbitration ruling, but I must have had that mixed up with matching ...

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

Was Trev better at managing a gym or a Jim? I was never a fan of the hire of Linden. To me it was a PR move to appease the fans in the coming turbulent years and at that he failed miserably. The prez job is to make sure there are butts in seats, Trev's low key demeanour was wrong for creating excit...

Lol I love Toronto, calling it "The Great Rebuild" when they still haven't won a playoff series!

Almost as good as the Oilers' putting out the Oil Change TV show of their rebuild for the past 8 years! :lol:

Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

All fair points, UW! I'll confess I don't watch Kopitar closely enough to really debate you on this.

But more importantly, when does UW say the Canucks will next make the playoffs? :drink:

Henrik has probably never gotten a single vote for a Selke. Wanna bet? :mex: Funny you bring that up! Hockey reference lists the nominations by season, Henrik was nominated in 7 seasons, highest finish was 24th. Whatevs though, it's just my opinion.

Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

Yes let’s focus on his one 50 point season where the whole team played poorly and assume that will be the norm. What was the three year average for points before the 52 point season? Or what was the three year average with the 92 point season included but the 52 point season removed? You seem to on...
