Re: Canucks camp & preseason 2018/2019

I’m with you, Rock. We’ll be in the basement again this year (us and the Yotes for worst in the West). I think we may see some improvements in the standings starting next season. At least we’ll be able to focus wholly on the kids while losing most of our game 4-2. League-wide, I think the Nucks hav...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Leafs look ridiculously good and Matthews and Tavares have not yet played 1 game together. And they aren't giving up many goals putting out their B defence nightly. Quick someone hand Tuna the preseason stanley cup! Christ on a cross, Ive never seen someone drain his seed bank over preseason result...

Re: Canucks camp & preseason 2018/2019

The hour is late and I find myself with not much to do so I thought I'd go on record with a stab at what I think the Canucks opening night roster will look like. Sorry for the length and understand if it's TLDR: The Forwards: Leipsic Horvat Boeser As someone in another thread mentioned, we are at le...

Re: GDT: preseason: Canucks @ Flames. Sept 22/18 6:45pm, SNP

I for one don't understand all this angst after two pre-season games from Demko. We saw this in the game he got late last year against Columbus: Rk Player DEC GA SA SV SV% SO PIM TOI 1 Thatcher Demko W 4 30 26 .867 0 0 61: If I recall correctly, he had an adjustment period in the AHL as well - then ...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

I think ol paddy I trying to shut this thread down... :mex: Or maybe he's applying to be the next CC poster sacrifice. Since the board population seems to be split between wanting success or one more tank year for the Canucks, I'm sure most would be on board for a slaughtering of a TO fan to help w...

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

Hopefully the guy has some pride and a set of balls unlike Trevor and Elmer. Someone has to be able to tell the Italians to piss off and stay the hell out of the hockey ops other than scratching the cheque. I forgot to comment on this. Obviously you were being sarcastic because no one is going to g...

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

I can see no president being hired until after the coming season. The [mod edit] will save salary and talk to their friends/advisors. Unless Elmer gets the team into the playoffs he will be taking the bullet next. They will trot out a new superboss a couple months before the draft. Hopefully the gu...

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

Whatever your critique/opinion/feelings about Linden are, I see this as nothing but bad news that further confirms this ownership group as a meddling one...an extremely meddling one. One that seems to feel the need to drop bombs on their management structure, what, every 4 years or so? I've said it ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

He would add character we desperately lack after saying Sayonara Sedins. Would happily bring him back on a 1-year deal, and since he's over 35 it could be incentives-based. He'd be no worse than Hutton or Stetcher on the turnovers, and at least he'd superman punch someone in the face once in a whil...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I feel bad for Hansen, something happened in sanjose, I hope he lands a spot, he’s still got elite wheels and should easily help out a bottom 6 somewhere. Roussel takes his spot and I’d prefer roussel over Hansen due to his nastiness Yup. If he doesnt get a contract beforehand, I wouldn't mind seei...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

It's been washing over a couple of threads the last few days but count me as one who just doesnt understand the desire to bring Bieksa back. He's a retread. He's 37. He's missed 57 games (close to 20%) over the last four seasons - which isnt the worst but why add another fragile body to an already f...

Re: Free Agency 2018 & Everything Related

:mrgreen: Four years is pretty stupid for fourth line players. I’m hoping this means a couple guys from the group of Granlund, Gaunce, Sutter, Baertschi, Gagner are history. Something tells me Virtanen is on his way out however. That must be about 15 or 16 forwards on one way deals now along with ki...

Re: Free Agency 2018 & Everything Related

Beagle, 4 years @ $3M. Roussel, 4 years @ $3.25M. I like the roussel one, beagle I wish it was 3 yrs at 4. If there’s no trade restrictions contracts are decent. This also frees up possibly trading Sutter/Gagner if kids show up ready. At least the team won’t have to rely on one guy for push back no...

Re: Free Agency 2018 & Everything Related

Players who can play in today’s NHL (not hurt your line up), is gritty, tough and a decent scrapper is becoming a scarce commodity. I won't use the "T" word, but I think the only priority for the Canucks next year should be the development of their young players, and I think that in today's NHL (no...
