Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Love the Sam Bennett to Boston trade rumour thread at HF. One puruse of the thread and one thing becomes clear, Bubbles is the only one on planet earth who likes Bennett. Stalwart - 4th overall pick

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

I see that your old "Fire Gillis" wound still hasn't healed yet. Shame

Gillis was such a shitty draftsmen, he needed twice the allotted amount to have any hope at the draft. ANY hope!

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Benning is a master at drafting outside the lottery zone but he is also human. Remember, we are drafting 18 year old pimple faced teenagers at the draft, this isn't the NFL where you are drafting more of a sure thing. There isn't a team in the history of the NHL that hasn't made a dud pick(s) in eve...

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

I wouldn't be surprised by a hockey trade involving Jake for another struggling peer. Bearchia is in the same boat, Granlund too if he'd been healthy. Those two were always the next set of placeholders anyways. Virtanen for Domi? Seems about right. Both have baggage, but at 5'-9" Domi doesn't fit t...

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

Cripes if that's all you get for a guy who gets you 30 goals on 14-15 minutes per night ... that means it's a buyers market this year. :( Not gonna get much for our Austrian I guess... Gatling should have returned more. The Devils Bamboozled the Rangers. 1st, 1st (Grabner), 2nd (Bernier), 3rd (Bern...

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

If we match the 3rd Vanek brought in last year it’s a win. Will be hard pressed to get much this year. Looking like the Hamhuis trade year, er, non trade year. Perhaps that hockey trade Benning covets if players like Hutton or Baertschi are involved. But barring a decision to move Tanev or Edler wa...

3 WHL'ers to keep an eye on for the 2019 Draft - Krebs, Byram, Couzens. All 3 top 5/top 10 protential. American Jack Hughes looks like the runaway 1st overall pick

Does Treliving deserve a firing if the 2018 1st he gave to Garth Snow for Hamonic ends up a lottery pick? (Plus two 2nd round picks as well)

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

Apparently Edler told Elmer he’s all good staying here. Good for him he’s a bargain at 5 million. See if you can negotiate him at Gudbranson money in the summer and tie him up for another three years. He’s easily the teams second best d man and after he and Tanev its a cliff dive to # 3 Speaking of...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

The descriptions of Boqvist sound more Duncan Keith like than Erik Karlsson like. Is it because Karlsson is a fellow Swede he gets compared to him? Just don't see us in the running for a top 4 pick, we are playing pretty decent enough to not be tanking like we are seeing with the Yotes, Sabres, Hans...

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

My spidey senses tell me that Hutton gets traded in a "hockey trade". Benning and crew like Tanev too much and do you blame them. Hutton for a big bodied forward, this is has more to do with the possible graduation of 3 rookies next season and surrounding them with some sense of security - Pettersso...
