Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Not sure what the complaint is Vic. The team has been a fire fire since 2013, with one mirage playoff season where absolutely every bounce went their way. Two management teams have pissed away picks for quick fixes and this is why the current product is unwatchable and the system still needs more d...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Vancouver will hold the 2019 NHL draft & same season will host the 2018/19 world junior championships. :o Be cool to get another 1st in 2019. Also if we draft Boqvist we most definitely will be able to see him with team Sweden in the junior championships. :thumbs: Hoping to get a top five pick agai...

I could give you many examples where the Leafs have been punished more than any other team would have.
Go for it.

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

SKYO buddy, this one is for you. :P I'll start by running with your Washington deal and taking it further. If they have interest in Hutton, and have lost interest in Burakovsky and just want to be rid of him, then Hutton + Gagner for Burakovsky + Beagle. I would also see what it would take to get T...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Horton was LTIR BEFORE he got traded to the Leafs. How is that cheating? Should it count against the cap? It did not for Columbus. Lupul will never play hockey again he is in such bad shape. He recently admitted this in his own words months after that tweet that you are putting so much stock into. ...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Apparently it’s a three year extension. Definitely a year too long but they probably wanted to sync it up with Greens deal. Thinking the same thing... Team should make the playoffs in 2 years and then in the final year of both coach and GM they should win a round or two. If after the 3 years the te...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

It's simply a marvel that the Oilers are in the running for their 5th 1st overall draft pick in the last 8 drafts. I n those 8 years there was also a 3rd overall pick and a 7th overall pick . Just disgusting. The league needs to use all its might to stop the Coil from walking out of this draft with...

Horton
Lupul
Soshnikov

They cheat and circumvent the cap. Does the league have the balls to call them out?

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Vic I'm looking at how the probable Vezina trophy MVP goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy was developed, the Lightning developed him by giving him SOME NHL games every year while they had Bishop there. There's no hard rule on how to properly develop a goalie, no proper template, it's just if he's ready or no...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I think the point would be that a couple of games in the NHL regular season will tell Canucks management more about whether he's ready to move up next season than any number of preseason games would, and they would have the information sooner and could use it for planning purposes. I suppose the un...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I'd like to see Demko get 5-10 NHL games this season, get the jitters out, I think it can only help him for next season to get even more NHL games, gotta prepare him for a full time backup role, because if Marky gets injured Demko will get even more games..if he makes the NHL as a backup next seaso...

Re: What to do about the Sedins? (Poll)

Why do they need to wait until the summer? What will change in the next 3-4 months? Just resign for 1 year now at what ever value contract they sign for. Then JB knows what he has to work for in the off season. Plus I think it is 90% sure they coming back unless there is something not smelling righ...

Re: What to do about the Sedins? (Poll)

Just because there is cap space doesn’t mean it constantly needs to pissed away. It's not your money so it doesn't make a difference - pissing away cap space only hurts contending teams. If the Canucks were considered a year or two away from a cup then 5 mil each is pissing away cap space because t...
