Re: Elephant in the Room - Trade the Sedins

facts, but like it or not the Sedins were the Canucks franchise for many years so they get auto-respek. I figure they'll decide during the two-week open discussion prior to UFA season, so management can plan their july 1st battle plan. I tend to agree with you that they have earned their right, but...

That flake should do the right thing and step down.

That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for peoplekind.

Nicely stated, Strange. That last line almost made me spew my brew.

Re: GDT 17-02-18: Canucks vs Bruins - this could be ugly.

Virtanen can really skate. Once If his brain can catch up with his feet, he will be a good one. FYP Wow, quite the first period for the good guys. Definitely want to see some more for Brock. Virtanen is still young. He will eventually mature and be a force. It isn't maturity I'm worried about, it's...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

Doctor.....lol more like a Rug Doctor Gonna have to disagree with you there, Blob. Pretty sure the "Doctor" reference in Strange's handle is with respect to the study of red herrings (rather than a movie reference). Notwithstanding the semantics or whether or not Blob indulged in some libations, .5...

Re: The Bubbles and Dud review every GM move thread

So you are s big believer of no quality veteran presence in the lineup for the kids to learn from, just bring in cheap don't care paycheque collector vets like what full tank teams like the Sabres and Oilers do? You prefer the long term 10 year bust it down to the ground ugly long rebuild? Hand the...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

With the Sedins staying mum about their plans next year, and the kids saying it’s Sutter they go to for advice from a vet, combined with DelZotto being a major leadership presence for them as well , Benning should not be in a rush to trade Vanek. If the return for Vanek is less than a 3rd, then giv...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Why don't we just "decide 'what we have'" now and anoint all our prospects as generational talents before they (or many of them) have played a single game in the NHL. :P Way more reasonable than your suggestion. :lol: Who would do such a thing? Can't tell if you're joining me in mocking the Medicin...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

until they play 2 seasons in the NHL we do not know what we have. I would actually say as much as 3 seasons. That sophomore slump is a real thing that has to be considered. If Boeser only scores 20 goals next season do we give up on him and call him a flash in the pan rookie? Or do we wait and see ...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Something tells me Don is using his selective memory to help his cause. Love the story of Pedan talking about McCanns bad attitude in the room, labelling him a Lone Superstar. Jared didn't have much respect for his teamates, see Josh Ho Sang and this drafts Ryan Merkley for highly skilled prospects...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

I think we've been here before, but: - why is it too early to give up on 21-year-old Jake Virtanen, if we can be sure that 21-year-old Jared McCannn is a bum ? McCann has an attitude issue that was having a bad influence on Virtanen and other rookies. Isn't it also alleged that Jake had (or still h...

Re: What to do about the Sedins? (Poll)

But I just want to close the book on the Sedin team, I no longer want to see them on the team as the team needs to move forward without them. Move Edler as well, many ways to skin that fish if you really wanted to do it. I hope we see Edler on the blue line on the 1st unit PP to raise his trade val...

Re: Sabres at Canucks 7 pm

When I posted this I was thinking in terms of what if. What if JK’s hockey IQ never improves? At some point the kid starts producing and playing the game he was drafted for or he won’t and it’s time to cut their losses and trade him. By then though there will be enough of a sample size for other te...
