Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Why do you add the cost of acquiring Taffoli? Your justification? Given Toffoli signed elsewhere on the same day , twas merely a hypothetical summation of the day's events. Outlining the totality of all the parts involved was only meant to be taken for what its worth, nothing more. Fully aware Toff...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

[The second thing I did when I heard of the trade was post that exact goal in Mick's thread of links. Good goin'! Me thinks this deal had to have been in the works for a while as a fallback plan to OEL. Partially explains why we let guys walk and why Vegas was able to go after AP. Wondered why we c...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Didn't get a chance to read all the reaction here to today's events yet, so sorry if someone already brought this up but my initial thoughts upon hearing the Schmidt signing is the sum of today becomes trading Tyler Madden, a 2nd rounder and a 3rd rounder for Nate Schmidt. If you don't look at as gi...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Too many high-glove goals in the playoffs to dipshits like Perron and Shcenn for my liking to give him an Eriksson-esque contract with a NMC. The best thing about today is I am fucking stoked that Demko is our guy! He fought so hard to level the playing field when it was clearly men against boys aga...

Never too soon. Anybody who's not a Canuck anymore is not a Canuck anymore and instant enemy.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

AP is a pipedream. The likeliest scenario now is we've got $ for Barrie, tho spitballing but wouldn't be surprised. Honestly I would've rather retained Tanev over Barrie. Barrie won't solve our horrid d-zone coverage problems and will only add to it. Not too many right shots left so I can totally se...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Can't really blame him, but it's kind of sad to see a good dude like Chris go... especially to a rival. Agreed, he was massive in the playoffs. I put him right up there among our most underrated defensemen alongside Salo & Lidster. Good dude, I'll miss him but he was an undrafted freebie (one of th...

Think Marky and Tanev were so hurt/insulted by being ignored they both chose the best way at payback, by joining a rival?

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

No doubt Cool Hand Jim has called around to see what the sweetener(s) would have to be to unload Loui. The question is... does he want to pay the price? No doubt he could pull the trigger on something IF AP is interested in signing here. That picture above is actually Carl Yagro's baby, great job C...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

There are a lot more and better reasons to go after Pietrangelo than OEL now :D Question is do we have "go after" money? I'd much rather chase AP over OEL but OEL came with the stip that they take one of our bad contracts away, which isn't possible with AP. Benning all but said moving money out is ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

And to Benning bashers, no, this has nothing to do with our cap problems but everything to do with expansion and the development of Demko. Don't know if there was any chance of losing Demko to expansion but I would've lost my shit if we did, now we don't have to worry about that anymore. If we sign...

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

Pens and Chicago - the 3x champs in the modern cap era, won their first championship while their franchise stars were on their ELC's. 2009 ELC: Malkin, Letang. Crosby 1st year on 2nd contract. 2010 ELC: Kane, Toews. 2020: Stamkos, Hedman won their 1st Cup over a decade after they were drafted. I'd ...

Re: 2020 NHL Draft

This season OJ and Rafferty (if you call him a kid) has a good shot at stepping into the lineup. Hog, Rathbone, Lind not likely but outside chance. If not this season the following season there could be as many as 4-5, of course depending on the fallout of this OEL deal if it happens, but that's too...

Re: 2020 NHL Draft

Jimmy is incredibly patient, reports indicate he has been working on this trade for weeks and has barely budged. I meant the owner won't be patient, Jimmy can't afford to have the team take a step back this year. Again, I disagree with you that a trade like this would set us back... Again, I didn't...

Re: 2020 NHL Draft

I'm not worried no matter what happens. If we lose out on OEL + all our UFA's it will feel like the end of the world for some, but I like the prospects of using that money and going fishing for other smaller inexpensive fish (as long as we avoid longer terms). I've actually accepted the possibility ...
