Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

My point was that Blob has acknowledged that in the reasonable hypothetical situation, the price for adding picks is too high. I suspect after this discussion that Blob is done with complaining that Benning "only" had 28 picks in 4 years, which means mission accomplished on my end. Making a point t...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

You want the extra picks, but you aren't willing to pay the (market) price to get them. I think it is pretty clear that, as a general strategy, Blob would like more picks to be (or to have been) acquired (as would I). That doesn't mean that every possible deal in which more picks could be acquired ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

That was almost as depressing as liatening to a canucks game. Too bad for the kids. Would have been nice to them make a push.

Re: So long, farewell, good bye to the Sedins

Thanks, Henrik and Daniel. Your colossal contribution to the Canucks has only been eclipsed by your monumental contribution to the city of Vancouver and the province of British Columbia. Skill, integrity, character, leadership, humility and generosity have been and will continue to be your legacy. W...

Re: GDT Ducks @ Nucks 7:00 March 27, 2018 SNP

Last place has somewhere around an 80% chance of moving down in the draft. Haven't you tankers learned anything the last couple of years. And a 100% chance of your lowest possible pick being no later than 4th. How is it that the anti-tankers can't seem to grasp this fact? Is winning a couple games ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Definitely stoked to see this news. Was slightly concerned the delay might lead to another defection. Will be interesting to see him play in the last few games.

Good job, JB.

Re: GDT: Mar 25/18 Canucks @ Stars 4pm

Loving the communal tank love going on around here of late...even Doc buying in :lol: Does that make those of us who have been tankers for 3 years visionary geniuses? There is a difference between being a tanker from the beginning and being a tanker after you are eliminated from the playoffs. Fores...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

... but I don’t think Pekka Rinne or a prime Carey Price gets this klown outfit within fifteen points of playoffs True - and that's why I'm not really sweating it. This team needs one more top pick and then with some of prospects turning into rookies and into legit players, we should turn the corne...

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

So question for those who want to see the Sedins put out to pasture after this season: Who do you feel should be targeted by the team to fill their spots? (And please don't just respond with "anyone") Who do you think could be acquired for a short term and reasonable cap hit that could provide bette...

Re: February/March/April OOTS

After the 3rd year in a row of sliding down the draft, perhaps people will understand that tanking for a couple percentage points in a lottery doesn't work. I think most that are in favor of "tanking" (whether that is coaching, managing, playing or cheering for the team to lose) would simply rather...

Re: The Rebuild...

Just imagine what he could do with more late round picks! Oh the irony.... Perhaps irony if one looks at percentages without context. In context, many of those who feel we won't win first overall in the event we have an 18% chance feel that: a) the league isn't exactly above board in their administ...
