Re: Canucks Contracts

That’s a great signing for Jimbo. Qualifying him at $7.5 won’t be an issue, ensuring he’s here for four more years. A classic bridge contract. Love it.

Re: Canucks Contracts

It’ll happen part way through the pre season likely towards the end. Once they cut Schaller and Eriksson there will be more than enough cap space. They can also put Roussel on LTIR if they have a longer term deal in mind. The chicken littles running around with their hair on fire is adorable While ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I’ve been pitching Benn since his last contract in 2016. Nothing fancy, just a hard working Salmon Kings alumni that knows his role and plays it well.

Re: Training Camp - 2019

Consensus has Brock, Petey and Miller on the first line - makes utter sense. Those who want Ferland there for deterrence factor may have forgotten that Miller can chuck them as well - he's just not as feared as Ferland but may have more miles on his fists/noggin. I would like to see Pearson, Horvat...

I barely have enough time to keep up with this site, let alone others... but that's some next-level mental illness right there.

Re: Blobbee Remembrance Thread

Dude, what will you do without your arch-foil? I mean, you can try starting shit with Reef, but we all know it won’t be the same. It’ Like drinking near beer - most of the calories, but none of the fun. I’m gonna have to figure out how to lure Island Nucklehead back. Raffles just isn’t challenging ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

The plan all along was to have Markstrom mind the net untilDemko was ready for the starters job. A few things have made that scenario interesting. 1) Markstrom’s turn around, or more precisely his growing into a confident number one. 2) Demko’s flakiness. There are some concerns but I’d characteriz...

They'll be fucked with minor short term injuries and unable to call up replacements for 4-5 games.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

That’s a horrible deal for Calgary. As a Canucks fan, this is great. We avoid Lucic (even if we have to keep Loui, he’s a better player), and the Flames get slower and shittier.

Neal actually could rebound nicely in Edmonton, but Lucic is done as an effective NHL player.

Re: Offseason grades & Load Management

Edler, Tanev and now Roussel would be best served with load management - not playing in back to back games & other special circumstances those 3 games in 4 nights type of scenarios - or whatever ridiculous scheduling. I think it depends greatly on what injury you're trying to prevent/deal with. Leo...

Re: Offseason grades so far

I'm just spit-balling here, but I'm of the opinion that Tanev should still return a 2nd rounder and a prospect at this point. The idea was to add depth, trading Tanev now doesn't make sense, particularly as Myers isn't the same type of player and Benn can't handle those kind of minutes. As for next...

Athletic has an amazing article about contract efficiency of every player. Toronto was ranked #3 best with A-. LOL
Where will they be ranked with Matthews-Marner-Tavares @ 41% of the team cap?
