Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

You don’t think they should have a bodyguard of some sort for the kid?

He is tiny. Or is Sheriff Gudbranson enough to deter all the players league wide from hammering the shit out of the kid?

Hutton is just one of those guys. Not a party animal type, but just too easy going. Not overly driven. It won’t fly with Green
What is Eriksson’s problem? Is he a party animal?

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

He’s 77 KG which is 170. He’s gonna get murdered next year. I guess Virtanen can ride cap gun for him

Re: Playoffs

And you don't get a RyJo if you don't pick Jones at 5th overall. Or you don't get Jones if you don't pick Johansen 4th overall 3 years before Jones hit the draft floor. Or you know, stay with me now, hear me out and I know this sounds crazy but how about the team just drafts and develop dmen like w...

For an 18-year old, he did pretty good IMO against a 26-year old goon/enforcer.
For sure he did, he looked strong but blob is right though that he’s not a fighter just like tkachuk isn’t a fighter.
But Tkachuk is a far better player than Jake

Re: Playoffs

He’s not a lot better than mantha. Ritchie sure. Also horvat would feed tkachuk his lunch if he ever got mad enough as would virtanen, both guys are bigger and stronger. Bobby Farnham. Virtanen man handled bobby farnham Horvat and Virtanen aren’t fighters at all. They avoid it at all costs Same as ...

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

If I had to guess, I'd say Pouliot may be the odd man out. Now I am well aware that friendships shouldn't count but quite often, they do. Hutton is very well liked by his team mates. In particular, Horvat, Stecher and now Brock. Those four are pretty tight. We're not building a country club. Hutton...

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

The scary part of trading Hutton is it puts the Canucks into farm team status, which is the same strategy the Oilers seemed to have used for years. They keep trading young players before they have fully developed. In general teams should wait till defensemen are 25 or 26 before they make a well inf...

Re: Playoffs

Tom Wilson, TBL Paquette etc showing why you need some big gritty dudes with the tangibles to fight out a series, something analytics types wish they can measure in their stats, but never will. Even Jets and Vegas (Reaves) have some heavy hitters to help their depth and skill guys out. Meanwhile th...

Re: Playoffs

Well RG that’s where Doc has become more of a clown act lately. He won’t admit that Elmer has made a questionable move let alone a poor one. It’s fun to see him dig up all these old archives and shit but objectivity is a swear word to him. He’s not capable of it

Re: Playoffs

I’m pretty sure Elmer would agree if he drank some truth serum. He grossly miscalculated the abilities of Birdbones and Dana Gudbranson. Could easily replace those slugs in UFA and save the picks and prospects.

Re: Playoffs

I said it was hindsight on my part. But even if he got the original package he should have held onto Bonino and dealt him at last years deadline and not given up a ransom for lumbering Erik Murzyn. Trade McCann for a d man that could skate and let Sbisa walk in 2015. If you really need an Erik Muryz...

Re: Playoffs

In hindsight Elmer should have targeted purely futures in that Kesler deal. He should have never targeted Sutter or Gudbranson in later trades and just signed guys in UFA as two or three year placeholders. He gave away too many picks and prospects. I think he’s learned the foolishness of his ways......
