Re: What is the wild card that will get us the cup?

The wild card is our defense. Luongo will be good - I'm really not that concerned even with his performance against Edmonton. Don't forget this was the guy that stopped 70+ shots against Dallas. Our defense against Chicago wasn't exactly stellar either. Who knows when Mitchell comes back and when he...

Big power forward with BC roots and a sick last name?

Re: Players having career years:

I don't really think it would matter or not if Messier is "ready" They need someone to run that franchise to the ground so they can actually rebuild. That's not a bit of a contradiction? Not if you believe that the proper way to rebuild is through the draft and getting no. 1 picks. The Rangers are ...

Re: Canucks Sign Jordan Schroeder

After getting cut loose from Carolina(?) - he's looking to have a good career ahead of him now. Didn't he want out? Connauton may be a low level example of that, but there's certainly nothing wrong in my eyes with drafting a guy with huge raw upside that may or may not click with hard work and form...

Re: Players having career years:

How did Mike Gillis ever came into the minds of Aquaman is probably one of the questions we will never get answered to. Did GM MG went up to Aquaman and convinced him? Straight from being an agent, to running a top franchise (money wise). I guess it's a collection of others as well, we got someone ...

Re: Canucks Sign Jordan Schroeder

Hodgson is coincidentally back playing this weekend and he to scored two goals. Connauton scored two against the Blazers on Sat and is the top scoring "D" in the CHL I'm still not sold that we have deep blue chip defensive prospects, I hope we draft the shyte out of the D this year :mrgreen: to fil...

Re: Who do you think MG missed??

To make room for Hamhuis, Bieksa would likely have to be moved, are we happy with that? And is the $3.75M about what it'll cost us to land Hamhuis? Probably closer to $4m for Hamhuis, but not a bad price to pay for him. He might even take a pay cut for longer terms 'cause he's a BC boy and grew up ...

Re: Team Canada: The "B" Team. Also - list your WORLD team.

Peter, Anton, Marion And great players they were. Took a long time for someone to deliver an answer, never mind the right one. IIRC, Paul is Peter's son. Paul was born in Canada well after Peter defected (to Canada), and so Paul plays for the US. How's that for appreciation ? But then he grew up in...

Re: March to the Deadline

I agree except for the Babcock part. He declined the Ducks' offer and signed with the Wings instead on July 15. He probably wasn't Burke's guy in the first place but Babcock wasn't fired. So I guess technically he wasn't fired. But I'm not sure he was even offered an extension, given how much Burke...

Re: Who do you think MG missed??

Alberts is not very good, but he might be alright as a number 6 if SOB can ramp it up a little. Doesn't even out for the fact that Mitchell might be done, in which case our D is a pretty shameful mess anyway and wasn't correctable at the deadline. Halpern might have fit our hole up front, but not f...

Re: March to the Deadline

Dumping picks on average joes might be what got Nonis fired, if there is any hockey reason why that was done, which couldn't be considered the dominant reason for it. Not that I'm pro-Nonis by any stretch of the imagination. It's pretty clear what got Nonis fired: disagreeing with his boss (when he...

Re: The NHL's Dream

The NHL's dream? Two non-NHL cities that drew really high ratings for the gold medal game were KC and Milwaukee. Gary Bettman is loving it. This is a great time for the NHL because it gives them a chance to really promote North American players. The time of the Euros is past - no more Forsberg, Lids...

Re: Canucks aquire Stasny

Stastny will be gone before he plays 15 games for the Canucks. I think he's a fourth line NHLer at best. LaBrie may not even sniff the NHL at all.
