Re: Shane Doan

In the case of Kassian, he's obviously too good for the AHL Are we sure about that? AV was willing to experiment with moving Kassian up and down the lineup, and it took all of 20 games for him to play his way right out of the lineup. He's still only 21 years old, and has played a grand total of 74 ...

Ooops. Well, there goes the latest Dudist acolyte... Hooray! The clique wins again! :roll: Haha, I guess you missed the irony of my post. Here - I'll let you in on a secret: There is no clique!

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts + Various Rumours

Well, to be honest...I liked Samuelsson. He looked great in the playoffs for the Panthers, where Booth looked like shite for us but that is besides the point. I just simply do not like Booth and that doesn't seem to rest to well with the clique here. Is Booth really the best you could get with 4.5?...

Troll, I thought trolls were people that just jumped in to a fray out of no where and then having stirred it up disappeared and looked for new hunting grounds ?? Speaking of which, where IS RD? Still waiting for clarification on how much better this offseason would be without Sturm, Samuelsson or B...

Re: Patience: Gillis is doing the right thing.

Yeah, I hear that. I paid a fair sum to fly to Van from Boston after Game 1. Told family/friends, it will all be worth it if I fly home with that darn t-shirt, that's all I want. Now and then I go on youtube and watch Burrows Game 2 OT goal ("Alex Burrows has done it again!"), and recall my bro and...

I just love how a viewpoint that goes against popular opinion around here gets labeled as Trolling. What happened to variety in opinions and accepting opinions that may or may not ride the same bus as yours. Fuckin' hell. Just plain accept the fact that in life not everyone will agree with you.

Re: Canucks Acquire David Booth & Parts + Various Rumours

It's quite simple Victor, they (Florida) got out of a long term expensive contract they couldn't justify anymore by absorbing two contracts (Samuelsson and Sturm) for only a year. Viola, no more Samuelsson, no more Sturm but most importantly NO MORE BOOTH. They (Florida) are now 4.5 million dollars...

Re: Shane Doan

Canuck fan seem to want to pay a lot more for players from other teams then they want to spend on better players that are already here. Alex burrows seems to get 5 to 10 more goals a year then Doan, has loads of grit, is better defensively, and is way younger, anyone want to give him 6.5 over 4 yea...

Re: Arnott

Then why would he draft him? To appease a part-time goalie coach he canned last summer? He wasn't fired until two years later, so that's exactly what I think happened. I guess I'm just more cynical than you. :mrgreen: ...Sturm was last years Arnott, and he made the team...this year if Arnott is sig...

Re: Arnott

So if we sign Arnott, let us say. Here is our forward group with a healthy Kesler. The Sedins, Burrows Booth, Kesler, Higgins Raymond, Arnott, Hansen Weise, Malhotra, Lappiere Edler, Hamhius Bieksa, Garrison Tanev, Ballard Where in that do you see a spot open for a rookie? Raymond is here whether y...

Re: Arnott

You're only drinking "kool-aid" if you accept RD's smear that anyone who disagrees with him over Gillis is akin to a Jim Jones devotee. Last year, both Tanev and Hodgson broke camp with the team, and they gave Jensen a long, hard look. This off-season, Gillis has pledged that the team would be gett...

Re: Arnott

I'm not sold on what Arnott has left in the tank, but on a reasonable 1 year deal, he'd be adequate, veteran insurance if he can keep the pace on this team. Last year Sturm was brought in as a veteran project, and as soon as they realized he couldn't do much for this team, he was shipped out. This....
