Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Pearson Horvat Eriksson have been excellent for a while at shutting down top lines. They are also getting excellent offensive contribution as a line. Most all of the offense isn’t Eriksson, but they shouldn’t mess with that line while the team is winning more than not. Flipping Jake and Brock back a...

2020/2021 Cap compliance

If the Cap goes up only a little and the Canucks follow the roster plan as follows they will be about 5 million over the Cap next season. The easiest option to be cap compliant would be to move Eriksson’s salary. If that is not possible they probably don’t sign one of Tanev or Markstrom, although th...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

What other NHLer skates sub 14 seconds (2019) and shoots plus 100 mph (2020) besides Petey?
OV maybe, anyone else?
He’s like an olympic decathlete if there were only these two hockey related events :)

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Sorry no Lynx. But I saw on YouTube this morning an interview at the ASG with Petey. What a bunch a stupid questions. Some Edmonton fanboy asking him all about McDavid and Drai. I was listening and thinking is this guy serious or just an Edmonton troll? Petey must be maturing because he answered all...

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

Skyo taking a break? Let me help.

Brendan Gallagher if he comes back from having his bell rung for the rights to Tryamkin, Eriksson, and one of Lind or Hoglander. Gallagher has a decent cap hit for this year and next and would look awfully good with Pearson and Horvat. Let's go for the cup!

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Imagine adding a Tryamkin? like adding a trade. https://canucksarmy.com/2019/09/29/is-nikita-tryamkin-coming-back-and-if-so-when/ Cup teams always add. I expect they will be comfortable getting their black aces from the IR (Ferland and Lievo) and Utica (Bear, Bailey, Lind, Juolevi and Rafferty) if ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I liked Groot’s game. Always thought he could play with Hughes and you’d get a Leetch/Beukeboom kind of pairing.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

So if Vegas wins and the Canucks lose in OT, all five teams are tied at the top of the Pacific. Nuts!

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Ottawa up 1-0 on Calgary early. If they can hold on and Edmonton holds on. Edmonton takes the lead in the division although they re tied in points wit the Flames and Yotes. Then if the Canucks can win tonight they’ll pass all three and go into their break in first in the Pacific. Hopefully they don’...

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

I think they should be happy with their depth right now. If they get into injury troubles they have players in Utica that can fill in. They probably want to look at Juolevi and Rafferty at some point; Mikey is a decent backup if one of the goalies go down; and they have forwards like MacEwen, Lind, ...

Re: GDT: 01/16/20>Coyotes vs Canucks>7;00PM>SNETP

J.T. and Petey weren’t hemmed in much this game. Not sure if they are as good offensively, but they looked better defensively with Jake. Seems like Brock was taking all the responsibility for his line. He looked good away from 9 and 40. Markstrom saying “Show me the Money” Beagle and Motte saying to...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I'd sit any of Schaller, Louie, Beagle, Motte, Rousell, Sutter and Ferland before I sat Gaudette.
He is still learning and has issues, but he adds more than he subtracts. Plus he gets the best out of Jake.

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

It's also his speed. He is an average skater, when he has to play an elite skating team like the lightning, the pace can expose this weakness. Has to be at the top of his game to make a difference, and he wasn't yesterday. Jake is fast, but doesn't have the hands and creativity, though that looks to...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

If Marky asks too much, they have to let him walk. Then they sign another vet on a short deal. Hopefully someone who can compete with Demko and Dipietro for starter minutes. That’s not a terrible situation. It would be better with Marky around, but not terrible without him.
