Sounds like a decent prospect coming, but I don't like trading H Badger in the division

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Columbus makes it official, they give up this year's second for the Torts signing. Awesome So who gets the credit for this? Gillis for hiring him or Linden for firing him? This needs a round table discussion between Chef Boi RD, Bubbles and IslandFarms for sure Can we get a first rounder for the 's...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Interesting article. After reading this it's hard not to argue that the best outcome for the long-term benefit of this team, and its fans, would be going no better than 2-4-0 on this road trip. http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/measuring-pace-impact-canucks-trade-deadline-plans/ That was quite a p...

Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate!

Yes we do know we couldn't have signed a #1 dee for $6M. :hmmm: No, but add in Sbisa's $3.6 and you have more than 6. You suggest we should not have a proven #1 goaltender during a rebuild ... but feel we should have a #1 dee during a rebuild. I don't see a 38 year old Miller in the Canucks goal in...

Re: Willy D death watch...

Our expectations are too low. If all the media and all the knowledgeable hockey people around town keep predicting low results from a rebuilding team then that's exactly the way it will play. This is not rocket science....................................... There needs to be seen to be upwards prog...

Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate!

Benning overpaid for Miller on the downside of his career, it's a waste to tie up $6 mil in a (supposedly) blue chip goalie if you are rebuilding during those 3 years. Miller is an average #1 goaltender on an average #1 goaltender salary: http://www.canuckscorner.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=251580#p...

Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate!

Exactly who did the Miller signing prevent us from signing? How would having his 6 million cap available have helped us over the last two years and this up coming season? Who exactly would you have as a number one while Markstrom is developing his NHL game? Just curious as to how Benning could have...

Re: Willy D death watch...

The coach got us overachieving last year. No way is he at fault this year. Keep him around another year at the very least. He's doing a good job with developing the young'ns. If we suck worse next year too then we get another top 5 and fire him. Probably right, I wasn't terribly impressed this year...
