Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Canucks continue to be small and weak.

Canucks re-sign Granlund 1 year / 1.475 mil

Still an RFA next year, hoping he has a bounce back season so next contract is still under Van's control.
Pretty much what most of us were guessing a few days ago.
Yeah, average deal for an average player.

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

Expanding on my thought from the last thread about Taveres. Lets say the Canucks had planned to offer Brock a 8 x 6 m salary = 48m all together. While they have a ton of cap space offer him 15m on a one year deal and then 7 years at 5m = 50m all together (or 8 years). That way his cap hit is reduce...

Road Trippin': The Canucks will embark on 12 road trips this season with six-games away from Rogers Arena being the longest and occurring on three separate occasions ( Oct. 6-18, Nov. 6-15 and Dec. 27-Jan. 5). 14 of the first 21 on the road. We'll know if the playoffs are a possibility by Remembran...

So again I ask "What happens after 20 days?"

"almost all cases" - So Canada does it in some cases.
Apparently (from in the CBC article you quoted) 6% of those youth detained in Canada are held unaccompanied. Do you think the ratio is similar to the US? You should compare apples to apples, not apples to (son-of orange-haired) Orangutans.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/canada-detention-children-united-states-1.4709632 We get waaay less up here, but we follow a similar policy... in fact most of "the free world" does. Nice case of "whataboutism". Last year, 151 minors were detained with their parents in Canadian immigration h...

Hoffman gone. https://www.tsn.ca/senators-trade-hoffman-to-sharks-1.1116853 No surprise. And gone again.. Sharks trade Hoffman to Panthers for a bunch of picks I'd say Ottawa got the better end of this series of deals. Boedkker is no slouch, even if he won't score as much as Hoffman. The head-scrat...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

. Makes me wonder if they’d be willing to trade back to 7th? If the Canucks make that trade, who would you want at #3? If Kotkaniemi gets drafted at his ranking, he could even be available at the NYI 11/12 picks. That might be a worthwhile trade for NYI to trade up for an elite winger, but I don't ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

He is grossly overpaid at 3.15 given his last two years. Domi has played at a 48-point pace his last two years, signed for $3.15M and will be an RFA in 2020. Galchenyuck is at a 54-point pace his last two years, signed for $4.9M and will be a UFA in 2020. Neither is known for their defence, both ar...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Of course Granlund will sign a one year deal. He has no leverage. I read somewhere that he would likely get 1.5 a season. Severe overpayment if so. If he wants more than 1 million a season tell him to take a hike. I would be phoning to see if you can get a 4th or 5th rounder for him. What is the th...
