Somehow Vegas ended up with our 4th round pick in today's trade.
Fucking Benning.

Re: 2018 Winter Olympics - PyeongChang

If you brought two nhl teams to play here it would sell out because it’s the best ice hockey in the world... Novelty is one thing. A two-week festival of spots nobody plays being broadcast from Asia? Colour me shocked nobody is watching B-level hockey in the middle east (they aren't watching it in ...

A good team vs. a bad team.

Wonder where the post-game party is. Vegas makes the Roxy flu look like minor indigestion.

It shouldn't surprise anyone Boeser has no space. When it's a one-man offence, you'll get the Ovechkin-effect defence.

Re: 2018 Winter Olympics - PyeongChang

Nothing to do with what the public wants. The NHL (correctly) knows that nobody cares about these games, and don't want to shut their league down so a couple thousand people can watch a 4am hockey game. Nobody seems to care in this part of the world either. Why would they? Aren't you teaching Engli...

Re: 2018 Winter Olympics - PyeongChang

Classic After losing to Germany in the semifinals, the Canadian men’s hockey team showed everyone how to handle defeat in their usual polite way. Unable to live with the disgrace they had brought upon their families, friends, and countrymen, the whole team lay down at centre ice and had a Zamboni c...

Re: Elephant in the Room - Trade the Sedins

I’m not sure I like the idea of Sutter, Eriksson and Del Zotto being the go-to mentors starting next fall. Another year under the Sedins would go a long way for Horvat and Boeser, IMO. On the flip side, we might be a point now where the twins are holding the kids back. As soon as next season? I dou...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Not as bad as I thought it would be (I thought he’d get between 4.5-5). It’s more than he’s worth, but less than what the market would give him. Gudbranson wasn’t going to recoup what we gave up for him. And given the choice to re-sign him, or trade him for a 2nd, I’m fine with keeping him. He plays...

I'm not saying he sucks at faceoffs. Just that the words "great" and "exceptional" are somewhat overstating things. I mean, there are wingers in that list who have done better. http://gif-finder.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/Leonardo-DiCaprio-Clap.gif Nuckles is just a sad angry little man due to ...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

He's an average NHL player who is paid like a second liner, on a very long term contract that he hasn't played up to at all. Aside from Eriksson and perhaps the upcoming Guddy contract his is the worst on the team. Money isn't a big deal to this team right now given how terrible they are, but if th...

Re: Elephant in the Room - Trade the Sedins

If two of Dalhen, Pettersson, Gaudette, Gadjovich and/or Lind are able to make the team, that helps but that's a pretty big if to take into next season. Obviously Dowd and Archibald aren't a big deal, but replacing three of the top point getters on the team is going to take some doing. Yeah this is...

So the Oil is now trying to out-tank everybody to get yet another shot at the first overall. Loses 1-0 to the worse team in the league.

We need better odds. Call up Megna & Chaput.
Just gotta be in the conversation. Aim for bottom-5.
