Re: Canucks Young Guns

I always thought of Edler as a poor man's Lidstrom. He's prob more physical than Lidstrom, but Lidstrom is way more skilled and smart all around. At one point, I thought Edler would become way better than Matty Ohlund, but at this point I'd say Ohlund was a better player. Is it because they're both...

Chicago 12. Florida 13. New Jersey 14. Colorado 15. Columbus Not bad, but with 10 Eastern teams mis...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Alex Edler's skills emanate a Stanley Cup championship play: - big, Eddie is a Rob Blake sized 6'3 - 215lbs after a pound of spaghetti. Eagle is the epitome of a top 4 dman, and we can thank Green/Baumer/Brown on this as they really wanted him back at his 2011 workhorse play. I always thought of Ed...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

As part of kicking off next year’s ticket drive I have heard that the Canucks want to have some sort of draft weekend part(ies). I imagine that will include having at least one 1st round pick. I can’t see Benning going into a home draft by trading his 1st. I’m with Blob, and many others, I’d love t...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Edler was never as bad as the hyperbole vomited on this board. But he did peak and decline. But he has declined to a pretty good spot; he was quite good last year and was not bad the two years before. He has, however, carried a sizable burden, and that's where many of the warts show. But is a stron...

Re: The War on Canada

Canada talking tough with the Saudis. I guess we can always hide behind Trump and the US military if things get real. No. My self defence instructor was a RSM with the Canadian Airborne and a career soldier. He was in the Balkans and at the battle of the Medak Gap where the Canadians routed the Cro...

Now take away the car and sell it in a public auction might do the trick.
Yup. First offence.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Senators sign Stone to a one-year, $7.35M contract . He's a UFA next summer, and cannot negotiate an extension until January 1. Sens could lose Karlsson, Duchene and Stone next July 1, and have no 1st round pick (Colorado). What a mess. Sticking with the Sens, an arbitrator awarded Codi Ceci $4.3M.

#Canes trade Jeff Skinner to #Sabres for Cliff Pu, a 2019 2nd rounder, a 2020 3rd rounder and a 2020 6th rounder.

Fairly big pile of MEH.

If Skinner re-ups in Buffalo (he's UFA next summer), it's great value for the Sabres.

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

I don't understand a disagreement between being ready next year to compete for the playoffs or the year after in terms of direction. The team is in a rebuild (and there really is little left that can be torn down for assets to help it). It isn't over until the next core needs only supplements to co...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Not odd. He’s not academically inclined. No drama next spring either. He’ll sign his ELC. Neither brother is about putting in any more time than necessary to make it to the NHL. That’s what it is about for them, where they are destined. Jack just isn’t a school guy. Yeah nothing wrong with it. It m...
