Re: I used to frequent this board back in the day -- I have some questions

Ive come to accept my own particular identity on here - the 'irrelevant lurker'. Kinda like a homeless person - no status and relatively voiceless. While working full time and contending with all the demands of life, i find it difficult to make time to contribute to 'some' of the meaningful dialogu...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

This is the best explaination I've seen; https://twitter.com/EarlSchwartz27/status/1153799226175848454 As someone pointed out, Marner needs to be signed before the season starts or the Leaves will have even more challenges getting cap compliant, they can't afford another Nylander situation where his...

Re: Offseason grades so far

Thank fuck Blob doesnt load a mountain of rational statistical drivel on here. This isnt the place for logic and reason... If it was half of us would be gone. This is a comedy club with some fringe facts and pseudo-logic directing the line of humour to remain somewhat relevant. Or you could argue t...

Re: 2019/20 Pacific Division

The Flames are still going to trade one or more of Frolik, Brodie, Jankowski or Neal (don't see anyone wanting Neal). I think Brodie will fetch a decent return. Frolik might get a 2nd or 3rd round pick. I hope they keep Jankowski as he has turned into a great penalty killer. The key is what they wi...

Re: Offseason grades so far

Do you even know what they gave away in those trades? But walk us thru those 7 or 8 picks that they just gave away.... Take care... Sorry rikster - this is always the stupidest argument to try and determine who the Canucks may have picked but here goes: 2015 Canucks trade a 2015 2nd round pick #53,...

Re: Offseason grades so far

To apply a blanket statement to the Canucks situation and defend it by saying trading picks is a bad idea is complaining for the sake of complaining... Sorry, its the way I see it ... if you want to go into detail as to why trading away a draft pick today which will be at worst 2 drafts away is a b...

Re: Offseason grades so far

The idea of accumulating picks assumes there is a law of averages . And increasing odds of success. It's a strategy/philosophy a lot of rebuilding teams employ. Our problem was ownership/management wasn't ready to go that route early because they felt playoffs were within reach and too important (b...

Re: Offseason grades so far

if you want to go on and on with this notion that the team should never trade away a draft pick walk us thru your thinking because as I said before it sounds like complaining because you want something to complain about... Curious..if you think I'm going on and on then why in the heck would you ask...

Re: Offseason grades so far

Accumulating picks should've been one of the M.O.'s at the outset of the rebuild That hasn’t caught on at this here message board. More importantly hasn't caught on with the owner. It's a strange thing, this NHL.... Every year teams get to add 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or more new players via a draft...That's ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Last offseason isn't atrocious, but it is a minor impediment. This team has a few minor impediments that add up to an identifiable dragging weight on the Pettersson-Era. I should add -- the tangible thing Beagle was brought in for was the PK. He delivered on that -- lots of SH time and pretty good ...

non-stop ideals! Eriksson for Canes James Reimer. NY sports columnist: Luke DeCock - James Reimer’s time with the Hurricanes could be short. Agreed to take on his contract to get out from under Darling buyout. Other potential moves in works. Reimer $3.4M AAV x2 - $3.1M cap hit if in minors - saves ...

Re: Let's get creative with Erikkson...

August 8, 2017 via pro hockey rumours: Over the last three seasons in particular, we’ve seen a number of so-called “ mutual terminations ”. In fact, we’ve seen more mutual terminations over this period than buyouts. They are just as they sound – when a player and team decide their prior arrangement...
