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

Yeah sure, surprise you can talk without the puppet master hands up your ass. My word... tut tut... I must say... how uncouth! :wow: Your ad hominem debating tactics do you no favours my good man. So you had no response whatsoever to Mr Stroker's (or my) points... right then. The way you've been be...

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

Pretty sad indicator when Dorsett is considered a top 9 player on the team. Why is it sad... he was playing awesome! He was scoring .35 goals per game (a 28 goal pace) second only to Mr Boeser. And Dorsett was doing it without power play time! Not to mention he was 2nd to Jake in hits per game at t...

^ Blobby doing a little work for a change, someone must be getting to him. :) So what do you think then Doc, did you mean 2015/16 was the first of the 3/4 years? I know that for me personally, I've been interpreting that as the end of the rebuild being in 18/19 or 19/20 from the get-go - the "now" i...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

But what about the asteroid.. ...or is it really an asteroid code for "fell off the roof" Hmmm, so... At this point it would also be, shall we say, comforting to hear that young Elias has signed an entry level contract, no? https://www.reddit.com/r/hockey/comments/6rs58q/what_are_player_salaries_li...

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

I don't want to imply I think it's important, because as I said, it's really just about that rate of progress that should be expected, but you (and my badly managed OCD) made me look it up. The earliest version I could find of "Try to focus on 3 /4 years from now" was here: http://canuckscorner.com...

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

What bad luck? They call it bad luck when the genius did not make the right pick, the UFAs signed did not pan out and the team is a couple years behind schedule because the genius didnt have a plan. Who are... "they"? :look: BTW it's not "summer time" yet, so stop your strawman building and get bac...

I'm suggesting that if the Canucks don't make the playoffs next season it would be due to bad luck, rather than a lack of genius. :mrgreen:

Next year is year-5 of the Benning Regime. And if Benning pulls it off and gets the Canucks back in the playoffs, he is a genius.
Fair enough. And it he doesn't ?
Near-genius? :P

Genius plagued by bad luck? :mrgreen:

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Look at who's writing the article... Last year, his list was as follows: 1. Boeser 2. Dahlen 3. Juolevi 4. Demko 5. Gaudette 6. Goldobin 7. Subban 8. Brisebois 9. Lockwood 10. Virtanen http://theprovince.com/feature/canucks-top-10-prospects-2017 And this year he's saying... 1. Pettersson 2. Juolevi...

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

When pressed by Cliffy about what will happen by 2019 I said make the playoffs. And "look good". Yes. :D I never got a concrete explanation of what that would entail, and you were pretty clearly getting tired of my asking ("You dogs are not going to get a more quantified prediction than this on a f...

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

SL who is the dreamer in full aggressive rebuild timeline mode, while I'm realist! I started saying "Try to focus on 3-4 years from now" back in 2015. (in 2016 it was "... 2-3 years", in 2017 it was "... 1-2 years", now it is 0-1 years) When pressed by Cliffy about what will happen by 2019 I said m...
