Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

No this is old news. With the lack of revenue the new CBA agreement has a 20% escrow this season (down to 6% in later years). On top of that there is a 10% additional hold back this season that the players could get back in later years if the revenue improves enough, but it probably won’t so practi...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

It looks like with the condo market being not so good and everything Mr Aquilini has squashed buyouts this season so Cool Hand Jim wasn't able to clear the space he needed to carry out this off season's plan. Yeahn, buyouts are no good because the cap-hits would carry over to the next season(s). Pe...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Good pickup by Benning. Wish Schmidt was 27 instead of 29 considering his contract and age of the core, but the acquisition cost is pretty sweet. Like UWS pointed out, I don't think Benning wanted to be hemmed-in by term and NMCs - which is what Markstrom and Tanev wanted in the end. With that, and...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

First impression....Great signing!
Demko is the future and Holtby here to help with the transition.
Good god what a relief...a smart contract.

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

What's going on with OEL? Haven't read/ heard anything since the morning. And HW is staying mum on it. Either she doesn’t know or she knows to stay quiet about details until after the fact.....in which case it’s very very close. Yeah, the 'tweet' said this: "The teams are believed to be grinding ov...

Re: 2020 NHL OFFSEASON

They can do this by starting the season with a Canadian division and three U.S. divisions. Canadian teams can just play each other at least to start the season. Then they don’t have to worry about the border opening. If the border doesn’t open in time the Canadian teams can just repeat playing each...

We won’t find out about NHL and border opening until after Nov 4th.

That is a safe prediction. Covid cases are rising in many provinces and states and that is not good news for people who want to watch live sports.

Dreger claims a couple of teams have told him the Coyotes want a first and a second, prospects and a young roster player. 29:15: https://rayanddregs.com/ What are they smoking? The Coyotes are trying to dump that contract....THEY should add a sweetner to get us to take that contract. I say a straig...

Re: Goalies moving forward.

Forget about Lundquist. He's a New Yorker now with a family and has made millions. No way he is coming to the West coast and enduring all the travel for an low % chance at a cup. If he signs anywhere it will be on the East coast.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Keep in mind Virtanen and Louis out is 9 million for the next two years. Virtanen will be hard enough to trade..... think Kassian. Louis is a nightmare. You are going to have to attach Demko or Ratbones/Gaudette + a 2nd to move that lazy cunt. Virtanen has size, speed and 18 goals this year. There ...

Re: Goalies moving forward.

Just common sense. There’s a lot of teams that would love Markstrom as their number 1 and could guarantee him a NMC. But hey ... you do you. Sure there's alot of teams that would love Markstrom, but guess what? There's a flat cap and a definite probability that there will be no gate revenues next s...

Re: Boeser, Brock

Blake Price basically got the Boeser for Dumba trade up and running, then it developed a life of its own. Shameful journalism, he’s such a douche. Boeser isn’t being traded, ffs. Oh come on man. It wasn't "journalism", no one said or predicted it would happen. It was speculation and radio talk fodd...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

So whats the word on Markstrom? Anyone else getting the sense that the team may be preparing to let him price himself out of town? It would surely be one way to relieve the cap pressure while retaining TT and CT. Hell they can likely retain Jake and add a piece if they let marky walk. Whats the loc...

Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate! (And personal insult thread)

Benning gets a passing grade on his draft record. On asset management and contract negotiations he gets a fail from me. Too many draft picks traded away, too many expensive fringe players. For the canucks to get to "contender" status we need Benning to excel now at asset management. He will need ski...
