Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15-16

"critical thinking from the stone age" :scowl: Are you still arguing that HERO charts can identify which players are "mentors"? Your problem is that you have deified fancy stats. Like you, they're a tool, nothing more... LOL at you thinking overpaying for mentors wins hockey games. Hurr durr let's ...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15-16

Data manipulation at it's finest. What's wrong with ranking the goalies based on their production? Oh wait, I did that and it shows Miller is worse than 30 goalies in the league. And as I've explained to you, Miller is 8th in cap hit. I even said that in the post you quoted. Reading comprehension go...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15-16

Thanks Pauser. Yes I was aware of those recent reports. Consistent with Dec in that the 3m increase was always dependent upon, to a lesser extent currency rates, and more significantly escrow and the NHLPA. I believe the NHL is using scare tactics as a bully pulpit towards the PA. The last thing th...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15-16

Unfortunately Blob I don't see how it could be a great TDD for the Canucks. Our assets aren't worth a whole heck of a lot with Hamhuis being the exception. Higgins Prust Weber Already cleared waivers once. If they are traded it will be for late round picks. So the win there is Higgins cap relief ne...

No point in arguing with an idiot because you can't win. Nice line, you should make that your sig... Enjoy this garbage. And remember in 3 years when the team is still complete garbage that this is what you supported. :) Rebuilds are painful... not surprised you didn't have the stones for it. Hope ...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15-16

I personally believe the Miller and Sutter contracts are solid, though you may not agree. Not sure how $6M for a below average goalie is a good contract, hor how $4.375M for 5 years with NTC is a good contract for a mediocre 3C Miller is an average #1 goaltender on an average #1 goaltender salary. ...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Aren't you that schmuck who used HERO charts to "prove" Sutter isn't a good mentor for young players? :lol: Schmuck? No. Schmucks don't know they're schmucks, that's a big part of what makes them schmucks... you schmuck! But don't blame me if you don't understand the value of production/60, and rel...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15-16

Every team ends up with what turns out to be over-payments Reef. You're quibbling about "$500k or $750k or $1M". (the Leaves handed Clarkson $36.75M - there's a ridiculous contract - perspective) Take heart in the Tanev and Markstrom contracts. I personally believe the Miller and Sutter contracts a...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15-16

It's going to be a long rest of the season and likely next season as well, barring an amazing offseason. Funny how some folks are just cluing into this or have soaked their diapers worrying about it. A small number of posters recognized this long ago, maintain a vision down the road three years and...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

The way I see it the top 3 are set: 1. Matthews 2. Laine 3. Puljujarvi 4 is likely where Tkachuk will go. Where it gets interesting is at 5. I project it will be Chychrun, but it easily could be Nylander sneaking up into the top 5. Whoever doesn't get picked here will go 6. Then I can see Juolevi an...

Interesting article: http://blogs.theprovince.com/2016/02/13/the-provies-the-night-the-earth-shifted-in-vancouver/ Has anything good ever come out of Bitchford? Bitchford is probably the one who convinced Fried Man to run with the Owners-vs-GM bullshit. And now he's using an HNIC attack as a spring...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15-16

What about taking a run at Jason Demers in Dallas? He's UFA at the end of the year, 27 years old, right-shooting..... Sbisa + middling pick or something? Assuming no Hamhuis trade, or that we can "Vermette" him. :P Edler - Tanev Hamhuis - Demers Hutton - ______ LOL Dallas doesn't want our garbage f...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Right, because Kyle Turris certainly struggled in Ottawa. People like to go back to the whole Hodgson situation (and take Gillis completely at his word when he unprofessionally threw him under the bus), but the difference between Hodgson and Drouin is skating. Hodgson wasn't a great skater whereas ...
