Re: Should Gillis Trade Alexander Edler?

Nice try, Meds. :lol: As you know, what I was doing with those various examples was to point out that, despite your Cherry-flavored prejudice, not all Europeans are "soft" on the ice, nor are all good "Canadian" boys "tough" or "gritty". And to think that Hank isn't "tough" just because he doesn't f...

Re: Should Gillis Trade Alexander Edler?

Meds, you seem like a reasonably intelligent person, by most of your posts. So, I really am disappointed that you spout forth this nonsense: [quote] The Sedins and Edler are 3 of our most skilled and naturally talented skaters. They are also the 3 most apathetic players on the roster. Sure they want...

Re: Roster Questions

Thank you, Per! Couldn't have said it better myself. Idiots like that Rumsfeld pollute the streams they wade into! And, by the way, I agree wholeheartedly with your sentiments of our Captain - simply the best Canuck ever!

Re: LISTEN UP: IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING THIS SITE

Brian, I assume you haven't been reading much of the threads lately. The inane, obscene and insulting posts are becoming endemic again. I suggest you check out the thread on the "Roster" (in the Canucks forum), especially the last couple of pages or so. It's gotten to the point that this pack of idi...

What a bunch of pathetic, adolescent-minded, boring, and ignorant pack you lot are! :scowl: I'm talking to the idiots who have hijacked this thread (like so many others on this site) for the sake of seeing their inane, insulting, and stupid words in print! Why don't you guys go get a life somewhere ...

Re: Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond...

Thanks for the update, Per. I wish I could watch some of those Swedish teams (no way where I live, unfortunately...unless there were some internet service out of Europe?). Anyway, I assume you're referring to Viktor Arvidsson...he looks a bit small at 5' 9". and 170 lbs. Looks like he has skill, but...

Re: Roster Questions

Here's a radical thought - one way of changing the roster and improving the scoring is to move players around. I don't mean the line juggling that AV was in love with, either. So, here is the new 1st line: Sedin - Sedin - Kesler With this, you have potentially made changes/improvements to the top ni...

Re: 2013 Draft

Well, given that the Avs new coach is from the Q, I think they choose McKinnon because Roy has seen that kid dominate his league for a couple of years. And with Burnaby Joe as V-P you have someone who sees the value and attraction (to the fanbase) of offensive stars! The Avs really need a boost for ...

Re: Should Gillis Trade Alexander Edler?

About right now, I lament GMMG not doling out to keep Ehrhoff! Given how some of our $4.5 mil plus D-men are somewhat overpaid (hello Ballard and Casual Kev, let alone our top dollar guy, Edler!), that german guy would have been worth every cent! :hmmm:

Re: Should Gillis Trade Alexander Edler?

Ditto, Saint! Given the complexities of the challenges facing GMMG, I think we would be naive to hope that he can fix everything this off-season. So, everyone recognizes that we need a legit 3rd C. But we also want size, speed, skill and youth. Obviously, most teams are looking for the same player! ...

Re: Should Gillis Trade Alexander Edler?

Yes, Garrison has a point shot at least the equal of Edler's. But how often have you seen Garrison carry the puck up the ice on the PP? I like him at the point, but he does not have all the offensive tools that Edler has (and I am looking at Edler's play over the last few years, not just this aborte...

Re: Should Gillis Trade Alexander Edler?

I don't think Gillis should trade Edler for anything less than an overpayment. If both Schenn brothers are coming back in a deal there's something to go on. If Couturier and Schenn/Simmonds are on the table we should talk. To trade within the new conference would need to be a severe overpayment (ie...

Re: Roster Questions

Given the choice, I'd rather move Bieksa rather than Edler. Bieksa, in my view, has already peaked and is heading downhill. Edler...who knows? The problem, of course, is that Bieksa is that much - sought - after right hand D. So, it ain't gonna happen! Actually, one of the big holes in the long-term...

Re: Should Gillis Trade Alexander Edler?

I think one of the reasons the PP quarterback is usually designated as a D is because it's that D who leads the rush up the ice from our own end. Granted, if Hank wins the faceoff in the offensive zone, that rushing D role is not so important. But I think you still need a D on the blue line acting w...

Re: Should Gillis Trade Alexander Edler?

I see the logic of moving Edler (thanks, herb). But with him gone, there is a bit of a "gap". We won't really have a power play quarterback with the D. I'm sure that the coaches have been trying to groom Edler to fill that role for a couple of years - ever since Ehrhoff left, especially. His success...
