Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

I think the thing I hate about Botchford is the TMZ act and fake shouting and screaming. It's why I just stick to reading, vice listening to him. His on-microphone/camera act can drive me up the wall. I was the opposite with Gallagher, hated reading him but found his pre-game rambling highly amusing.

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Jimbro has said he's going to focus on upgrading the D so there's no reason not to believe him. If he goes hard after Myers or a RH D of that calibre. If Hughes shows he's ready for the big show, and if they can get a 2 year deal done with Elder, then they should be set on D. 3 significant if's, but...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Thx UW
It would be nice for Hughes to get some games so some of his warts are exposed and he goes into the offseason knowing what he has to work on.

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Honestly there’s probably quite a few AHL guys that could have done what Granlund has getting 15-16 minutes a night. Not even close Granlund is Hansens replacement, versatile,can play up and down the line-up & can be trusted defensively. Hansen had more speed & was more tenacious on the forecheck, ...

Re: Trade Deadline, Feb.25, 2019 ?

I don’t think I’d go past 6 million for Myers. If he wants a penny more he can sign somewhere else. Blow your wad on Karlsson. Giving 7.5 to Myers would be the height of stupidity. If little things Loui got $6M 3 years ago Myers will definitely get $7.5M. I agree with the Karlsson strategy though, ...

Re: GDT: 28/02/19; Canucks vs Coyotes>6pm>SNETP

I’ve always liked Richardson. Me too. Cheap labour, good teammate can play up and down the lineup. Never understood running him out of town on a rail. He’s effective and still had wheels and grit. But hey we gots Birdbones! Dude is gonna be irate. He HATES Richardson Didn't his contract expire whil...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

From Dahlen's comments today he sure is playing dumb. Said he never asked for a trade. Never demanded a call up. Doesn't think he's NHL ready but wants a spot in the AHL where he can develop his game. Praised his Utica teammates but remained mum on coaching and management. Acted surprised at the tr...

Re: Trade Deadline, Feb.25, 2019 ?

Tanev won’t return that anymore. If he had stayed healthy and say the team finished close to or in the sqeathog seed, I’d say maybe. He’s constantly injured. I can’t see teams giving up much more than a 2nd a a meh prospect tbqh. May as well let him hold Hughes’s hand for 60 games and take the 2nd ...

Re: Trade Deadline, Feb.25, 2019 ?

Given where we are in the standings, Benning could be forgiven for holding pat. I’d personally like to see Edler moved for futures, but given the trade protection that would be a tough sell with a disappointing return. It would have significant impact in the room, so if we’re still sitting in that ...

Ya its a mess. What are the chances anyone would bite on eriksson? He is a huge fuckup and his 2 goals a year or whatever is an embarrassment. We would probably need to throw in a pick ffs
slim to none,they either ride out his contract or buy him out

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

His amateur acouting is on point but I'd say his pro scouting dept is lacking. Has Bennings regime flat out won a trade yet involving pros? If by pros you must mean the fringe players, cause I can't think of a trade that involved a pro that isn't getting benched multiple times a year. The talent le...
