I wouldn’t even do Goldobin straight up for Puljujarvi

What endears you to Jesse “the Finnish Hillbilly” Puljujarvi?

What exactly are you seeing in him that the rest of the world isn’t?
Potential.

https://www.capfriendly.com/players/ryan-spooner https://www.capfriendly.com/players/sam-gagner Sorry, what am I missing in regards to the money part? It looks like it costs us one mill. more. Rangers retained 900K when they sent him to Edmonton. Vancouver Canucks Center, Left wing Cap Hit: $3,100,...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Canucks acquire Ryan Spooner from EDM for Sam Gagne JIm Benning is great at drafting !! Right now, I'd like to see a little less moving pricey scrubs around and something that would help the team long term. Nobody is giving up a draft pick for Sam Gagner. It's one overpriced veteran for another ove...

Fairly equal cap hits (Canucks save $50K).

Low Risk move, and probably gets Jimbo some credit for getting Gagner back to the show (he may dress tonight for Edmonton).

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

Republicans should be very careful here. A future Democratic president could proclaim firearm violence and climate change as national emergencies. Bit of a difference between building a wall and depriving people of their weapons, don't ya think? One sparks legal challenges, the other sparks bloody ...

He's a goalie, of course he's a complete nutjob.

Re: GDT: Sharks @ Canucks Feb 11/19 7:00 pm SN

Demko and Markstrom went down really close together, chronologically. That cant be predicted but the precarious situation in net was not unknown. Benning was waiting for Philly. If Philly put McKenna on waivers last week all would be well in the world. Benning refused to give Philly a pick. That si...

Re: GDT: Sharks @ Canucks Feb 11/19 7:00 pm SN

There was no other option last night, and all the planning in the world isn’t going to make a difference when your regular backup is out and your starter comes in the morning if a game with lower body issues. You’re making a mountain out of a molehill trying to assign blame where there’s none to be...

If Markstrom and or Demko are more than day to day it will cost Benning an asset to get a back up starter.
Fixed. At this point, a late pick is probably worth it to keep DiPietro from getting demolished mentally. He is clearly not ready and this defence is not capable of sheltering him.

Re: GDT: Sharks @ Canucks Feb 11/19 7:00 pm SN

In my mind an emergency is when a goalie is injured in the pregame warmup and you need the equipment guy to strap on the pads. Sportsnet is saying we have Michael Leighton in the minors on a PTO? Sign him to a two-way ASAP and let DiPietro go home. Massive risk keeping this kid around on an “emergen...

Re: The "ALL HOCKEY / NO BS" hockey talk thread

Fair point about becoming top heavy on the cap, but let me ask you this - what are the odds that Hughes ever has a seen as good as Karlsson's current year? What are the odds he ever cracks 60 points in a season? Even the most bullish among us would probably say 50/50 at best. I'd be thrilled if Hug...

Re: The "ALL HOCKEY / NO BS" hockey talk thread

Stone plays the same position as Boeser on the PP. Love the guy, but not a net front presence. Simmons is too old to grow with the kids. Fine as a place holder but not the answer long term. Lee I don’t know. Chiasson will be overpaid based on a couple hot months. Pass. Skip signing Benn and give Sa...

Re: The "ALL HOCKEY / NO BS" hockey talk thread

I kinda agree with dangler. I would throw the kitchen sink at Karlsson but maybe sign a cheap depth d man and a cheap winger with some bite of that doesn’t work out. Let’s the kids play and see if a trade can be worked out. I keep doubling back to Ferland but those concussions scare the hell out of...
