Re: Expansion draft

The only guy I don't want to lose in the XD is Boucher. All the rest can go. Boucher is good for 12-15 goals a year on this squad. Not great, but serviceable and brings an element of offensive flair to this anemic bunch.

Re: GDT: Mar 7 - Habs @ Nucks 7 pm SN

Guess Willie has shortened the bench. Camarrosa playing with Bo. But then he has reunited Boucher and Goldobin. Throw in a little Chaput and you have a new 4th line. One can really argue that Sutter-Megna-Gaunce is our 4th line, however Willie sure doesn't see it that way. Pretty sure that's his 2n...

Trymakin close which is good.

Ugh.....it's snowing out.
Did Tryamkin get the "super mumps" or something? He's been out way longer than the rest of the mumps boys.

Re: TDD 2017

Sharks vs Sens in Finals. Go Hansen? Or go Burr? I prefer a 1st rounder... The 2017! Draft is a shire class, apparently the drop off points in the 1st round is around 10th pick and the next one around 20th. We wouldn't be getting thing any better than Goldobin with instead a first from the Sharks I...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

It's hilarious as to how clueless the local media is and a lot of Canuck fans. They were all up in arms yesterday about Subban not getting called up and McEneny getting the call. If the idiots had done their homework they'd realize that McEneny has been Uticas best defenceman all season The obsessi...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 16-17 Sponsored by SKYO

Obviously lots of talk around Canuckville about trading Hansen as he has value as a player for next year, great cap hit, will fetch a lot at the deadline, will potentially get taken in expansion draft etc. BUT is Hansen a guy the Canucks want to keep through 2020+ and sign him to a ~$4m longer term ...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Don't worry, Benning is saving the "fire Willie" card for when the heat from ownership comes down on him. He knows he can survive the next few weeks as long as he does something at the deadline and will call an airport cab for Willie at season's end. Should buy him some time over summer and next ye...

Re: 2016-17 Utica Comets

Really not much to report on the farm other than Virtanen has scored a grand total of 1 goal in the last 2 months. Gaunce goes down and promptly scores 2 in his first 3 games... I really wonder what JVs value is right now. At this point you have to think he needs next year on the farm as well unless...

Re: 2016-17 Utica Comets

JV now gone 16(!!) games without a goal. 3 assists over that same span. We keep hearing how he's playing well down there and doing good things, but the production simply isn't where it needs to be to be an NHL prospect. Not willing to give up on the kid right now, but if there isn't an upward trend ...

Re: 2016-17 Utica Comets

Virtanen gone cold again the last 3 games. 0 points, 3 shots on goal and 2PIM over 180+ mins of hockey. Other "prospects": - Over the same span Labate has 5 shots, 1 point, 2 fights. - Subban 2nd in team scoring with 19 points in 25 games. +/- is -5 which is OK given how the team is doing overall. -...

I'm assuming results from these types of surgeries have improved over the last 20+ years. Saying Boeser and Holden in the same sentence scares me.

Re: 2016-17 Utica Comets

Well JV scored his 2nd of the season last night on the PP. Good news on 2 fronts - one that he actually scored, second that he's getting PP time.
