Re: Canucks Young Guns

Hoglander looks like a steal. Love the grit, motor, skill combo of both the wingers Podkozlin and Hoglander. The two will be very complimentary to what we have here. He can sure skate. Terrific agility on his feet. His footwork was what I noticed as well. Edge work is amazing, finish, not so much. ...

Re: How did Jimmy do

That was the rumoured price for Barrie, who is a UFA next summer. Benning got wise to ole Joe Sakic Way. Benning took the next left to get to Burnaby 8 Rinks and stopped at the Myer hot dog stand on the way And yet he was traded for substantially less. Did you hear this rumour while stumbling aroun...

GUSEV getr done. https://www.tsn.ca/report-vegas-golden-knights-considering-trading-nikita-gusev-1.1331735 Kucherov suggested to stevie y to get him, gusev outscored him back in Russia. He'll want something between $4M-$5M per though, but I think it's a worthwhile gamble. And what exactly are we gi...

Re: How did Jimmy do

The Myers contract is solid, and the blueline is better with Myers than without Myers. Benn is a good pick-up at that price and can work the lower pairings. Pending development from Juolevi and perhaps another depth signing, Vancouver's defence looks better than it did. If only Benning could have sn...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I have a trade to announce... Avs Acquire: - Andre Burakovsky Caps Acquire: - UFA forward Scott Kosmachuk - Second-round pick (2020) - Third-round pick (2020) Jesus Christ... these guys are going to be scary up front. Burakovsky was one of the ones I was hoping Benning could swing a deal to get. Oh...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Weighing in on the draft and the Miller trade.... Re. The major-junior/AHL route, the canucks are definitely not alone in that regard. The vast majority of offensive stars in the league skip the AHL. The AHL is really a proving ground for B/C level prospects - which is something the canucks have st...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I generally have a dim view of Russians because if they get their nose out of joint in the slightest, they tend to bolt or want out of Vancouver. Just as the club seems to have a good history with Swedes, it seems the inverse with Russians. I loved Bure to death as a Canuck, and Almo put up numbers ...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I'm bracing myself for Jāņi and Līgosvētki here in Latvia. Beer, cheese with coriander seeds, leaping over bonfires, more beer, and walking off with someone to 'pick flowers'... wonder how many March/April babies there are around here??? Oh yeah... back to the draft. I have a feeling Boldy is the pi...

Sabres fans seem to want some younger middle six wingers in the trade for Risto.
That probably means affordable Jake mm?
See if they’ll take Goldy and a 4th or a prospect.

I believe Karlsson May want to play in the East.


Ottawa isn’t happening. He HATES Eugene Melnyk.
Yeah, I think Melnyk burned that bridge pretty good. Can Montreal afford him and Weber?

Christ, we’re not even to July yet and THIS is what the threads have come to nowadays??? Dark days, my droogs, dark days...

BTW, if Benning trades Virtanen for anything less than a star forward with post-season credentials, he should be fired. I haven’t forgotten the Neely trade.

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

I’ll take Riga over Toront-hole any day. Safer, cleaner, and friendlier. Transit system is better. Food is better and cheaper and the beer beats anything your hipster bullshit craft breweries can manage. Toronto is not even in the same league as Paris and London. Those are imperial-class capitals r...

That’s why I (and a lot more Canadians than GTA trolls want to recognize) are cheering for Golden State.
