Re: Muzac For Munsters

How old are you Mick? Wifey and I went to Portland on the weekend and saw The Delines. Their new album - The Imperial is great! The leader of the band and songwriter is Willy Vlautin’s. He folded his old band - Richmond Fontaine, a couple years ago. Willy has also written 5 novels, two of them made ...

The 2 year $20 million Gillis offered Matts “old man with bad knees” Sundin was atrocious as well
I misremember that period.. :drink:
Implanted permanently

Gillis has been studying how they do things in Aussie Rules Football

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: Canucks Young Guns

I’d take Grabner over McCann everyday all day The ‘Do’s” for sound asset management Step 1. Trade a 2nd a 3rd round pick for Steve Bernier Step 2. Trade Bernier, former 1st round pick Grabner, and your 1st round pick for Keith Ballard all the while Evgeny Kuznetsov is still on the draft table Step 3...

Re: Closing out the season (2018/19)

This draft class is average at best, after the first 2 picks, the 2nd tier begins which is made up of 4 or 5 nothing special prospects, around 8,9, 10 is where tier 3 begins in which close your eyes and pin the tail on the donkey Make the playoffs ffs. It will do this club better than picking 3-4 sp...

Re: LOL

TSN has reported that Chicago is shopping Forsling. I got news for you HW, he’s not that special. "Shopping" implies the expectation of a return. What did the Canucks wind up with? Well, well I guess we can label Forsling an expendable Journeyman now rather than foundational or untouchable What you...

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: The Great Jim Benning Debate! (And personal insult thread)

GM of the year? If there was such an award should Jimbro Benning be the runaway winner since most everyone, mostly Blob here, predicted the Canucks would be one of the worst teams in the league this year, post Sedin era? He’s got my vote Blob - your thoughts Do you think 20th in the league is good?...

Re: LOL

The only Benning trade I was instantly unhappy with was the Forsling trade, even though I understood the reasoning. I was disappointed in the Kesler return but couldn't fault Benning. I was disappointed in the Garrison return but couldn't fault Benning. I was real happy with the Gudbranson trade. I...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

the rebuild that they were attempting, one that tries to remain competitive and has roster players who are vets that can help show kids what it takes to play in the NHL and are still of an age that they might be useful pieces when the team is winning again. And this, this "re-tool on the fly" conce...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

He might have done it as well as it could be done, but it was a foolish plan that cost them resources and time on the real rebuild. So in your opinion your Vancouver Canucks led by a new young core could have been fighting a playoff spot at the deadline ... years earlier? :eh: I guess Ronning's Gho...

anyone continuing to defend these players and these moves is either a troll or a retard.
it's really not as bad as you make it sound.
Blob is clearly doing some "retarded trolling" here...
Blob’s posts lack clarity when he’s angry posting. It’s similar to Tourette’s
