Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Nov7, 2018 via Sportsnet650, Jim Benning on Tryamkin: We haven't closed that door. I'm in constant communication with his agents in North America & Russia to keep tabs on him. We're hoping at some point he decides he's going to come back. For a guy his size he's a good skater & can play in today's ...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Soderstrom seems be consistently the highest ranked right shot D-man. Seems to bounce around in that 15th to 30th area of all the lists out there. Might be someone to look at if we make playoffs and are drafting in that area. Remember the Pacific division is a joke right now, it won’t take much of a...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Puljujarvi is dumber than a sack of hammers, SKYO. You can’t fix that. Juolevi suffers from immaturity and not taking his craft seriously. Olli isn’t dumb like Pjljujarvi, it’s his heart or compete level, desire or lack thereof. Its not a question of Olli’s skill set and can he play, it’s a question...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Gadjo just turned 20, he'll need a couple years of AHL to be effective, next offseason he can muscle up and work on his power skating. I think it's tougher for junior power forwards to make the jump to the pro game. It's no easy thing going from playing a truculent style of game with kids your own ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

McLellan is still a good coach. He didn’t become a dummy going to Edmonton. I still think Poolparty will be a decent player but they are the team who should have taken Matt Tkachuk. Perfect linemate for Mcjesus. Never should have traded Hall. The Reinhardt trade was terrible. Chia is living off the...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

This is the thread I seem to get in the most dog doo-doo on so what the hell; I have absolutely nothing to back this up. No links, no interviews, nothing save a gut feeling. I'm a little concerned that Travis Green has the owner's ear over Jim Benning, at least right now. It's something that makes ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Chiarelli really has dropped the ball, he got too impatient when McDavid arrived by trading Hall and Schultz much too early. Now they are looking for someone just like Taylor Hall to play on the wing with McDavid. Adam Larsson, has not turned out well at all. Nurse is not looking very good for a 7th...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Not sure, Sportsnet put this out November 7th. I don't give those imbeciles at Sportsnet much stock I'm just providing a list of what names to expect to go in the 1st round. Dach right now is certainly ranked higher than Cozens. Newhook is too high, Byram and Broberg too low. You'll probably like th...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Coaching isn't the problem in Edmonton. It's been there drafting in the 1st round in the new Millennium, combined with putrid trades and signings. Not even McJesus can save this sad sack of a hockey organization. 2018 - 10th overall - Bouchard 2017 - 22nd overall - Yamamoto 2016 - 3rd overall - Pulj...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

The Jets, very recently were in no different of a place than where Vancouver is now. The pieces are coming together like it did for them. Like Diehard says, it's a process. We are witnessing the 1-2 years unfold right before our eyes, it's a beautiful thing. Get on the Benning Train, the man knows a...

Hutton has definitely brought his game back this year
