Re: the paranoia of the canuck fanbase

Don’t worry, I’ve been doing this debating thing longer than you have, and as I said you’ve yet to ever give your own, original thoughts on the team so somebody else can discuss them. Given it’s never happened I don’t see that changing now, guess you missed that part too. Hey DieHard, always good t...

Re: the paranoia of the canuck fanbase

Here we go again with that damn word "mentoring". Way over used and in most cases inaccurate. Benning"s first year was a playoff year. I prefer the term leader as opposed to mentor. (sounds like a freakin professor) and we sure as hell haven't brought in one of those. :lol: LE was acquired for the ...

Re: the paranoia of the canuck fanbase

HW, we wouldn’t have signed a player like LE if they were serious about a rebuild. They tried to stay competitive and still retool, give them A for effort but it didn’t work. Do you actually believe that? Looking over their roster the season he was signed, not sure what world you would have to live...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

It's gonna be tough to get respect back but we have to if we want to play with the big boys That's an interesting comment...you hear that a lot from the local media and some fans but whenever you hear players talk its just the opposite... More likely they will say that the organization and the city...

Re: Free Agency 2018 & Everything Related

The real debate should be whether you think the Oilers approach pre Chiarelli or the Benning approach is the right way to develop a group of young, skilled players? If you prefer the Oilers approach then we are going to go around in circles having the same debate because this management group believ...

Re: The Rebuild...

Just imagine what he could do with more late round picks! Oh the irony.... On one hand we should get rid of everybody for a bunch of rounds 4 thru 7 draft picks because we can find impact players there but on the other hand we are p*ssed off because we will never win the first overall pick only hav...

Re: The Rebuild...

C ontrary to your sentence above, there have been quite a few late round picks who have turned into core players. Even if we dispense with the 3rd round - e.g. Richards (3rd), Quick (3rd), Messier (3rd), Lidstrom (3rd), Roy (3rd) - there have been a number of core players that have been drafted in t...

Re: The Rebuild...

Yeah I forget who it was they had on 1040 some draft Guru a couple weeks back, he basically said that where the Canucks were with the current contracts on aging players, awful prospect pool and lack of young players on the team he thought in his mind at the time it was a 7 year rebuild from when Be...

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

But either way you spin it, out on ice product is little better than Edmonton’s has been for the past 12 years. As far as the rebuilding goes he is doing fine and I suspect that we are 12-18 months behind schedule because of ownership, not because of his ineptitude. Man, you are all over the place ...

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

. This is why picks should be stockpiled and blunders at the draft table minimized especially in the top 10. For me, its about finding a future core group of about 5 to 8 elite players in order to be a legit Cup contender and until they find those players the upside is a middle of the pack team... S...

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

The only real difference is that the Coilers rushes their kids way too fast. lol, that's pretty much the point isn't it? Since you don't like the Benning approach, I'm curious to know how you think the team should fill out its roster if it isn't putting kids in the lineup who aren't ready? You can'...

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

Which type of team do we want on the ice while rebuilding? Are you serious? Focusing on wins and losses and where the team ends in the standings is not what a rebuilding team does...That's what a fan does when they say they want to tear it down but can't stomach the product it produces... If you wa...

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

Genius Jim couldn't spell rebuild until 2017. Not sure how much of this kind of talk is parroting the media or is your own opinion? For me, rebuilding or retooling is mischaracterizing what the debate is really about... Which is what type of team do you want to ice while rebuilding/retooling? The B...
