Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

In 2010 we traded the 25th overall for Keith Ballard. These are the kind of players who were available: 26th overall - Evgeny Kuznetsov 28th overall - Charlie Coyle 30th overall - Brock Nelson Our GM after the trade was made - “we didn’t like what was up on board so we felt confident in making the ...

Thank God the old Swede didn’t accept the $20m/2 year deal, it would have ruined us.

But yes, it turned out alright in the end…

Re: OOTS 2018-2019

Do you have rubber sheets on your bed for these dreams of yours? You should be counting your lucky stars Jimbro didn’t get his way drafting - $10 million William and his 3 goals in 31 games. You’ve been pissed right off since the 2014 draft that Jimbro drafted Virtanen instead of your Boi $10 milli...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Gillis was freaking because trying to sign, what everyone knew was his objective, Hamhuis, was in stall mode. He got the chance to sign Ballard so he did.

Re: OOTS 2018-2019

A hat trick for Debrincat last night. We could have picked him in 2016. :cry: Gillis could have picked Rackell instead of Jensen. He could have picked Tatar, Barrie or Orlov instead of Rödin. He could have picked Derek Stepan instead of Yan Sauve, could have picked Erik Karlsson instead of Hodgson....

Re: Closing out the season (2018/19)

Potatometrics This made me lol. I don't know who you are talking about though. I say ride or die. The west sucks and we have a shot at the playoffs. Go for it but don't trade for rental players at the deadline. Seems like the stars aligning to me. We need either Jack Hughes or some other offensive ...

Re: Closing out the season (2018/19)

It will do this club better than picking 3-4 sp...
