Re: 2021 TDD

Me too, HW. I do like his decisiveness... but sometimes I don't immediately agree because it seems overly impulsive. I honestly can't think of anyone who was gifted to another team from his trades or "giveaways". At first glance, it might look like that for a few games or a few months. My examples w...

Re: Brandon Sutter extension

This is so true. Neither Benning nor Gillis employed very good pro scouting it seems. The guys brought in are much more miss than hit, but at least when you're winning, you can attract better quality players, especially UFAs willing to give a slight haircut. Benning's trades... some have been excell...

Re: Brandon Sutter extension

Agree Doc. I wouldn't even want Birdbones coming back for the league minimum. His history with injuries means you need salary and roster spot to have someone as reliable to replace him for a good portion of the season. He's slowed way down from those hernia surgeries and who knows how C-19 has affec...

WTH? The new name changes of two esteem CC members are somehow even worse than their last.
I think UDL’s new name has something to do with how Blobs ass tastes according to the BerryMan

Re: Brandon Sutter extension

Unfortunately, we've had enough time to see that Gaudette was nowhere close to replacing Sutter as the everyday 3rd line center. In some metrics, he couldn't even replace Beagle as the 4th. I'd love to move on from both Sutter & Beagle after this season, but in today's market, it would cost the same...

Re: 2021 TDD

I expected something like the Benn trade, but Gaudette? Wasn't expecting that. Not sure if there were any stories in the room, so I agree it's likely Gaudette wasn't on the right development path and with his pending RFA, that made him expendable. And we know JB makes those decisions quickly once hi...

Re: GDT: Jets @ Canucks>3/22/21>7:00pm>SNETP

Burrows said they are basically replicating Newell Brown's system over there in Montreal so.... Yeah but, Newell Brown is still drawing it up here like the Sedins are still in the lineup, entering the zone at will and setting it up without a sweat. Maybe do something different to suit the current p...

Not sure what Travis' roster choices, shitty coaching, AHL tactics and systems has to do with Elmer. I agree it’s never Elmer’s fault. :thumbs: The bad contracts we talk about endlessly is elmers fault but not much else is... drafting is very good Nobody said anything about Benning being the second...

Travis and his staff should have the riot act read to them.

I dunno guys, if we're being ask to clean this place up... should this kind of sinophobic, geopolitical, ignorant nonsense be tolerated?

Maybe at least keep it out of the GDT?

Re: GDT: Canucks @ habs Mar 20 4 pm pst CBC SN

Fuck sakes.

Does Green need to put Buble in there?

Why the hell does Green's system have the forwards skating in a straight line away from the pass? They can't see it coming and the D are forced to make 100ft passes through the entire Habs team.
