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? I don't think the team knows what patience i...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Now there's barely any talent there besides the top-2 centers and potential cap issues due to horrendous trades and brutal signings. Holy shit, that's some serious incompetence. The previous Oilers GMs must all be breathing a sigh of relief that their incompetence will be forgotten. While I doubt a...

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

In terms of where we are at competitively, I think we're in a decent spot in net. If we needed someone to steal us playoff games it would be different, but at this stage we only need decent, reliable goaltending that keeps us in most games. We know how soft the goalie market is, I don't see Markstro...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

If only it was that simple, you just know the NHL would screw us in that lottery. We got lucky with Pettersson, the NHL will never forgive us for making them look stupid in that draft. I bet the NHL is thrilled that Petterson went to Vancouver. He's single-handedly making the Canucks watchable agai...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

I think people should just admit that Tkachuk is exactly the type of top six we need in the line up. I think its fair to say a do over would be nice. However, having said that, we still need to see if Juolevi develops into a top four dman for us, or becomes a blue chip trade prospect now that we ha...

I just think this argument is dead.
Yep. We can revisit when Juolevi turns into a solid 2-3 dman. Til then, case closed.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I hope they take a look at MacEwan at some point this season. Big kid, seems to be a late bloomer. He moves pretty well for a big guy and has an edge. If macewen was on the Canucks he’d be one of the faster players, he can skate. He’s the most pro ready by far, and plays with skill, I think he may ...

Re: The Brexit disaster

Maybe it's a generational thing, but I have no clue why anyone cares for the verbose opinions of such a pompous ex-Canadian (and convicted felon).

I guess when you started the paper they'll save you space in the Op-Eds.

Re: What to do with Alex Edler ?

The answer seems obvious: Re-sign Edler to a 2-year extension @ $5.5M per with a modified NTC. He won't require protection in the expansion draft, and we revisit the situation in 2021. This would be fine. The ideal situation is letting him chase a cup with Tampa or Toronto, getting the Canucks a pi...

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

I'm staying far far away from Karlsson Meds. He would look wicked now for us but 10-12 mill a year might change that...especially if his numbers start waning I could see New York calling. The Rangers have about $20M in cap space this summer. If he does want to stay in the West, Dallas is as attract...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

If I were the Canucks, I would announce a “setback” in Pettersson’s recovery and make him unavailable for the all star weekend. Give the kid a break, and send a veiled message to the league to do a better job protecting the club’s stars before we see another Naslund or Daniel Sedin incident. The al...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Maybe we should rest him until next season? :lol: The Slack-for-Jack in me would be fine with this approach. If he's good to go, he's good to go. No bruising, no swelling, no limp, and MRI says minor. Which is great (and lucky). I'm sure the Canucks are being very cautious with the kid, so it's unl...

Re: GDT Jan 5 canucks vs leaves that fall cbc

At the end of the day, I like Bo, very happy he is our 2nd line centre, but recently we have witnessed Bo's offensive ceiling and what we should expect from him. I see him as your classic 60 point top 6 forward, in that 25 goals, 35 assists range, nothing wrong with that, like a Sam Reinhart or RNH...

Re: GDT Jan 5 canucks vs leaves that fall cbc

Has Bo's play been knocking you out over the last 15 games during the Pettersson show? No, it hasn't, so put down your rose coloured glasses my friend. We all love Bo, I get it, like we all loved Trevl Linden, I love Bo but like Trevl we are overrating him. Your mistake is comparing anyone on the t...

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

If there are offers out there for either Sutter or Beagle at the trade deadline for an extremely speedy left winger prospect that can play some defense, too, I’d probably make the move to trade one of them and then go with Gaudette and Gaunce as the 4th and 5th centres. I’d resign Edler for a coupl...
