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

My money is on the oilers not addressing their shite defence, drafting "another" forward, and continue to overvalue their own players Mike Gillis style, hindering their ability to make "bold" moves like Genius Benning ain't afraid to do Yeah, as long as Kevin 'I killed someone as a stupid drunk dri...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

So with Gulutz out, whom to replace him? I vote for Dallas Eakins (could be better as an associate coach, not as a head coach right now) or Brad Shaw (who scoffed at a year extension from the Blues, as the Blues have Yeo coming in to replace Hitch after next season) Why not Green? Groom him in the ...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Fuck, I have a bad feeling dEdmonton will trade up with Montreal so they will nab PLD and they grab a top prospect D Bastiches! :evil: I'm fine if Son of Kieth comes to us too but I was really warming to the bigger, completer Faus Frenchie https://www.nhl.com/news/nhl-draft-pierre-luc-dubois-a-compl...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

This is a good contract for both the Nucks and Baertschi. I liked seeing Bear going to the net and battling along the boards, and not becoming Mason Raymond II, though he still falls down a bit too easy for me. It would be good to see if he can keep it up in the playoffs sometime in the next two ye...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

My concern is the travel between AHL teams throughout the season. It didn't work well for Calgary. The AHL Comets would probably not get any favors in scheduling if out this neck of the woods. Call ups from the AHL to the NHL, well a bit inconvenient but the Canucks can afford the best. Player move...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Baertschi just signed a two year extension $1.7m in 2016/17 and $2m in 2017/18 with an average cap hit of $1.85m. It is a pretty decent deal! :D http://canucks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=886195 With this deal, the Canucks are now committed $63.7m on 12 forwards, 7 defensemen and 2 goalies. The only R...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

yeah vancouver fans are a whiny bunch. :hmmm: :-D Anyways, if we can't add stammer, lets talk about the 4th line C and wing, mwaha. I'd say move Granlund to RW or trade him so we can sign Trevor Lewis for an expensive 4th line center, he can play any position, he'd be a great stanley cup winner to ...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

Those are only 4 top tier contenders, what about those on the bubble that could contend better with Stammer? Rangers, Flyers, Islanders, Florida (yah right!) Rangers committed $56.1m on 7 forwards, 5 defensemen, and 2 goalies with 4 RFAs to be signed (Kreider and Hayes) Flyers committed $60.9m on 9...

Re: Canucks 2016 Post Season Discussion

Stamkos would probably want to go to a contender not a rebuild. That would eliminate Van, Ed, T.O. Car. regardless of money or location, he has health issues and is getting older so why not go win it somewhere else in the next 4 yrs (although why not stay in Tampa as they proved to be a contender (...
