Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Canucks don't have many moveable assets. I thought it may have been smarter to deal Dahlen over the summer. There wasn't any rush, really and it seems we ended up with a younger but less talented player. Benning needs to ship out a lot of guys this summer. Some of them may bring back an OK return. ...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

I appear to be an absolute minority here - I find Botchford to be insightful. I can see how he would piss off the JB 'knob-gobblers' though. Botch isnt afraid to straight shoot and he has a zany sense of humour. (Now I've really put myself out there on my own little island) I'm with you Nuckster. B...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Good riddance to Big Fat David Pratt, he really made the morning show unbearable. I feel a little bad for Tomlinson, he was pretty good for an ex-hockey player/jobber. I think I could stand to see him replace a few people on 650 - Reach and/or Deep, John Jang or Chang or whoever. Both those shows c...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Re the 50th anniversary logo.

Meh. Nothing to celebrate. A big FAT "50" to remind us 50 years and no Stanley Cup.

Imagine back in 1970 if you had told people that there would be championship for the next 50 years. No one would have believed that. But it happened.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Gillis was freaking because trying to sign, what everyone knew was his objective, Hamhuis, was in stall mode. He got the chance to sign Ballard so he did. Then later, (just a little later, His main target came to fruition. Ballard did not start out all that bad. That trade receives plenty of sour g...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Apparently there is not much difference after the 2nd pick (Kakko and Hughes) between 3rd ranked Players and 12th ranked. I see no urgency to get in the top 6 or 7 with this class. Players picked between 10 and 15 could easily be as good as players picked between 3rd and 8th Did you read this on th...

That would be a hockey trade, no? Tough winger who can score...we need that badly on the Canucks. We'd have to sign him of course an...

Check out Karlssons' start with the sharks.

0 goals
7 apples

Havent seen much out of them yet but their record is good. Wonder whats the deal with EK?
EK had major surgery on his ankle last year and maybe is still not fully recovered. He could be damaged goods. Stay far away!

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Nah., I really don't think we ned 2 goons lik Semenko and Mcsorly on the Canucks. But we do need to retaliate when someone attacks our best player. But how about Darren Archibald...why is not on the team? He looked just fine to me at the end of last year and I think he should have made the team ove...

Re: February OOTS

Starting to hear a lot of criticisms regarding McDavid, one dimensional game, only affective at top speed, nobody can play with him, attitude problem, arrogant, not good in his own zone. Leaves his zone early. Translation? Pavel Bure. Not good if you are a centre. Like I said before, Matthews is mo...

Re: Elephant in the Room - Trade the Sedins

Not going to happen. First of all, they already said they are playing out the year and won't go anywhere. Full stop. Secondly, are they really what a playoff bound team wants at this point? Do they have the gas and grit to be a factor in a long playoff run? At this stage of their careers, I doubt it.

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

It is just the Canucks luck. :( You guys are so used to coming out on the wrong end of the favour of the Hockey Gawds that you don't know what it looks like when they throw you a bone. Horvat and Baertschi are out for an extended period this season with injuries. Bad for them, in that I'm sure they...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Poile gets 15+ years of mediocre play by his team with all the time in the world to try to build up that franchise, but 3.5 years of Benning & the pitchforks are out it's fucking ridiculous. What is ridiculous is for the Canucks to sign guys like Erickson, Gagner and Vanek. What a waste of money, e...
