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...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

For those who don't know, the Flames acquired stone hands Hamonic for potentially a 2018 lottery pick and two 2nd round picks, so yeah getting Calgarys 2018 1st would be a doozy!

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Gudbranson wasn’t going to recoup what we gave up for him. And oh Boi oh Boi did we ever pay dearly for him -,Jared "Harold Druken" McCann - Stalwart. To hbd Agenders, its like we gave up Matthew Barzal and Anthony Beauvellier for Gufbranson. Who cares? The moaners care, it gives them something to ...

3 years $12 million No NTC is fair.

All things pointing to Evander Kane signing here in July? Benning keeps talking about wanting to get bigger/tougher in the forward position. No sectet that Kane would love to be back home. Is Benning gonna getterdun?

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Diehard, the Avalanche fixed their defence in one draft - Makar and Timins, and the Duschene trade - Girard. And don't forget the O'Reilly trade, Zadarov is playing good hockey finally. Anyhow, Benning can do a lot for this team's D with a top 10 pick in this draft and a high 2nd round pick. Unlike ...

Do you have some inside information on this, or just a strong intuition ?
I would probably chalk it up as - 'Glass Half Full' there Cliffy Chicken Little
AKA Wishful Thinking.
Or common sense anticipation

Re: Elephant in the Room - Trade the Sedins

People, we are not trading the Twins. With possibly 2-3 maybe even 4 rookies making the team next season ya need the Twins around for one more year to mentor in a lesser role on the ice. After next season the kids will be fine without them, Bro and Brock will be good leaders in the room. Demko and P...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Fortunately for Makar he's a giant compared to Hughes and Makar isn't big I'm taking Bouchard and Boqvist ahead of Hughes. Hughes did not impress at the WJC, was in fact benched by the coach a fair bit in tight games, a bit of a disaster defensively. He definitely wasn't the fastest guy in the tourn...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

I haven’t had a chance to watch as much junior hockey as I normally do - having young kids of your own takes up a lot of time! That said, still not sure who I like more between Svechnikov and Zadina, would be fine with either of them at 2 or 3. Dahlin at 1 for sure, just don’t see that happening wi...

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

Nuckles is just a sad angry little man due to the Canucks shell shellacking one of his two (Oilers) favourite teams - the Bruins. Rebuilders of the Century according to Nuckle Sandwich. Remember these 3 names - Debrusk, Zboril and Senyshyn. And then remember these 3 names - Barzal, Connor and Boeser.
