Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

it's not a stretch to envision Petey as a captain at all. BUT, in the grand scheme of things when considering what's in the best interests of our up an coming bunch, Bo has the attributes of a leader and heart of a Canadian (passionate mother-fucker) to lead the way, and it's likely something Petey ...

Re: I used to frequent this board back in the day -- I have some questions

Appreciate your post Rikster. Hopefully your trips across the water will be worth it. I lived up in north isle for awhile and made the weekend sojourn down to the Rogers Ctr in the early 2000 period once in awhile; was worth it to see the 'west coast express'. Now we're talking about an 'alien', a '...

Re: I used to frequent this board back in the day -- I have some questions

Ive come to accept my own particular identity on here - the 'irrelevant lurker'. Kinda like a homeless person - no status and relatively voiceless. While working full time and contending with all the demands of life, i find it difficult to make time to contribute to 'some' of the meaningful dialogue...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Pretty sure Brock wants 7 or 8 yrs. Doubtful. Five years seems to be that sweet spot these days. Got a mid-summer IPA buzz going with some effervescent 'herb'and we're chattin canuck stuff; I'm figuring that Brock gets 5-6 years at 7.75 On a different note, i am actually excited - looking fwd to th...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Gotta say, "Great signing, JB!" When ya add it all up, he really has transformed the Canucks this off-season (and he did it w/o my incredible wisdom/input :| ) Really looking fwd to seeing how it all pans out this season; Canucks should be much more grittier, and more difficult as a team to play aga...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

And christ it's only July 8th, still got a few months to make some cap saving moves. Plus if we do make some moves, I wonder if Vegas would clear some cap by moving Reaves? He'd be wicked on our 4th line while providing some protection for Petey and Boeser. No one will be more pleased than I if Ben...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

GMs have to learn. Unfortunately it seems most never do. Benning was blindly foolish signing Ericksson. He was foolish to chase Lucic. Most people said so at the time. Did he learn? I think he did. It should be hard for him to get out from under Ericksson’s contract. It should be excruciating for h...

Re: Free agent FRENZY thread. July 1, 2019

Hi. Was watching TSN - (toronto sports network) a moment ago. Only one of their commentators had anything positive to say about today's signings for the Canucks. Ferraro went on with hisfamiliar complaint about Vancouver not being a playoff team and Benning trying to do too much. I may not agree wit...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

TRADE: The Lightning have traded forward J.T. Miller to Vancouver for a conditional first-round pick in 2020, a third-round selection in 2019 and goaltender Marek Mazanec. Should the Canucks not make the playoffs in 2019-20, the first-round selection will move to the 2021 draft. I LOVE THIS TRADE!!...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Anyways, the main point or question i wish to put forward here has to do with the viability of Benning actually falling back in the draft this year- does it make sense? Jimmy said he is looking at all possibilities, including moving up or down in the draft. If the guy he hoped might fall to him at ...
