Re: CANUCKS SIGN UFA JASON GARRISON

I think we know Bowness enough by now to not write defense pairings in stone.

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

It's a lot easier to look back in hindsight and nitpick at the draft picks, and the whole draft picks discussion is going nowhere except in circles.

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Whenever the Sedins decide to retire, I still believe we will be a competitive team with young guys like Jensen, Kassian, Schreoder etc all doing well, and working out to how we want too. Plus we'll most likely sign or trade for a few top 6 players along the way, so I'm in no mindset to be worried a...

Re: Farhan's $0.02 - Sedin twins to Anaheim for Getzlaf & Pe

I'd do Getzlaf+Perry for Sedin+Sedin, but even then I can see us adding something else in that trade because Getlaf/Perry are still young and have more life in them then the Sedins. If I had a choice, I'd do Getlaf+Ryan for Sedin+Sedin just because Ryan could play with Kesler and have that American ...

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts + Various Rumours

Regarding Matt Carle: Pass. We need a more defensive type of defensemen that we can reply upon when Salo gets hurt. Alas, Salo is hurt, and who steps up into his place? The struggling, coach has no confidence in me, Keith Ballard. I backed Ballard all of last year, and this year as well, but it's g...

Re: 11/12 Injury Thread

Salo pulled his groin shooting a puck, then aggravated it by kicking a puck later on.

No details on the injury other than that.

Re: Official Luongo Hate / Love Thread

The scenario I often see laid out is a deal involving Lu for Lecavalier. I'd much rather have Luongo on the books than Vinnie's contract. THAT is a crippling deal. It's not just the contract and baggage that Lecavalier brings to this type of a deal if it was indeed based around Luongo, it's the fac...

Re: GDT: Vancouver & Columbus: Now on SPAC

With Raymond ready to go I think the odd man out will be Volpati. The top two lines are really clicking right now and the third line is doing all right. I don't think it does any good to have Hodgson sit at this point. I'd start Raymond on the 4th with Lappy and Weiss. Let him get his game legs bac...

Re: Fantasy Talk

I use ESPN's site because it incorporates the live draft and a salary cap which really levels the ice-surface on draft day. ... For the record, ESPN fantasy leagues kick Yahoo's ass in a major way (as of last October). That's interesting, so the salary cap is based on real-world salaries? That woul...

Re: Kesler Has Hip Surgery, 10-12 Weeks

Hodgson, it's your time buddy...even though that 2nd line isn't going to help him out much. Hell, I'd try fricking Lapierre there, see what he does. :lol:

Please hurray up and become a true #1 starter Schneids. :(
