Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

The Oilers new GM only has one option, don’t do anything, be patient and ride it out. There’s no quick fix there. Draft, draft draftMaybe fire the pro and amateur scouting staff McJesus has about 12 years of dominance hockey left in him. What’s the rush? At this rate I will wager that at least the ...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Apparently there is not much difference after the 2nd pick (Kakko and Hughes) between 3rd ranked Players and 12th ranked. I see no urgency to get in the top 6 or 7 with this class. Players picked between 10 and 15 could easily be as good as players picked between 3rd and 8th

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Doc when you and your fellow Clark park maniacs all packed into the dodge charger and cruised downtown to terrorize the innocents with Foghat 8-trank cranked what was the standard route of the trail of horrors? Down Clarke to Terminal, Terminal down to Main, Main down to Hastings, was it at Hastings...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I can’t think of one thing Chia has done in Edmonton that was good Hall trade - bad Eberle trade - bad Giving up on Schultz - bad Lucic signing - bad Futures for back up Talbot - bad Puljujarvi pick - bad Spooner Strome - worse than Eberle trade Russell signing - bad Caggiula trade - ???? Sekeres? -...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

I don’t see any potential for high picks coming back to vancouver at the TDL unless you are trading Edler and Tanev and we all know that ain’t happening so I think we all need to cool our jets regarding the deadline. If will be uneventful for the Canucks unless we are buyers. I’m fine with that and...

Tkachuk is a coward who will eventually develop into full-blown cancer.

was not impressed with Tkachuk hitting the dirt and turtling when Kassian dropped his mitts and not impressed with his sucker punch of the unsuspecting KNOWN pugilist - Wenneberg.

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Nylander and Ehlers struggles in the playoffs was a big red flag for me. I'm not huge fans of these two players now that I've seen them in the NHL. Nylander is always in and out of Babcocks doghouse, not a good sign, not too mention that these two have had the luxury of riding shotgun with two of th...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Have you heard Curt Appelby speak? No, he just sent me an email back for slagging them for spending the morning talking about football. I don't think I've heard him talk. I send in emails all the time to the 1040 goofs, especially Halford and Brough. When people see me at one of my job sites on the...

Either way, Doc. The Gillis-Bro's are going to be livid with Benning come 12pm trade deadline day cause ya just know that if the Canucks are pushing for the playoffs still you will not see one iota of a "seller" style trade that will satisfy the Pro-Tank crew. If anything you will see a tinker trad...
