Re: Richards, Michael - Waivers

Richards +$1.2M per year to Buffalo for Hodgson + 2nd rounder LA wraps Hodgson in bubblewrap and buys him in the offseason out @1/3 (he's under 26) LA's annual cap hit is $ 1.2M retained salary + 708K buyout (4.25M/2*1/3) = ~1.9M - roughly the same as buying out Richards Buffalo gets Richards at $4....

Re: Bieksa Out Long Term

Hedman breaks a finger on a Canucks shot in October

Bieksa breaks his hand on a Hedman shot now

What's with Bieksa and these ironic injuries (twice having leg lacerations)?

Not as bad as what happened to poor injury prone Pavol Demitra though...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15

[ nice breakdown, however I can see Kassian in a Flyer jersey and rippin' it up, granted they have shitload of RW's, but they are severely lacking their typical big team image, ZK would remedy that asap. Not to mention some of their players can shift over to LW I'm sure. targets B. Schenn or unlike...

Marko is out with a broken finger.
Ahhh...why is it so hard to find that on the net?

Re: Another day, another Markstrom shutout

You do wonder how committed the Canucks are to Markstrom...he's been splitting the starts with Erikson. You would think the Comets would be riding the hot hand and perhaps rebuild his value up a bit. It seems to me, just by looking at the leaderboard, that most of the top goalies are getting simila...

Re: He's Tampering in Heaven Now

I had one question that he never really did answere that day. It had to do with the morning I had arranged for two little boys of a minor hockey coach in the Hastings neighbourhood to meet their idol, Pavel Bure. Pat was coaching at the time and said Bure would stop by after practice at the Pacific...

Re: Career Milestones 2014-15

I am a huge fan of the twins but unless they rip off another 300 points and either a cup win or another finals appearance there is no way they should be in the Hall . If you figure the lockouts cost the Sedins 80 points in the 116 games missed, Henrik would be pushing 950 points by now and Daniel o...

Re: Career Milestones 2014-15

Not really a milestone, at least not for the twins, but as Peter Forsberg was elected as the third Swedish player in the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet ranked the best Swedes of hockey of all time: 1. Peter Forsberg, f Hasn't played the most games, hasn't scored the most point...

Re: Career Milestones 2014-15

Without a cup, the Twins are dubious for the HHOF. IMHO. Don't forget it's the Hockey Hall of Fame, not NHL Hall of Fame. Henrik has an Olympic gold, World Championships gold, World Championships bronze X2, Art Ross, Hart, probably somewhere north of 1,000 or 1,100 career points (in an era where be...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Last year Tortorella dismissed the idea of having right handed shots on the PP to play with the Sedins and the results spoke for themselves - 26th overall in the league on the PP. This year they have RH shots in Vey and Vrbata and the PP is now middle of the pack. Powerplay ice time is not about rew...
