Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Reading Gallagher is kind of like driving by the car accident. You slow, avert your eyes away, but then say, wtf I may as well take a look. And then you drive away, having thrown up just a little bit, in your mouth.

Re: Canucks second line - 2014-2015?

Kassian should be, and deserves to be on line #2. not a doubt about that. Nobody "deserves" to be on the second line, unless they earn it. :? If Kassian is inconsistent or looks disinterested, he needs to be dropped down the lineup. You are stating the obvious here. Of course if someone doesn't des...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

My bets are on Shinkarek to really surprise on the upside this camp, depending how rehab and conditioning from his operation earlier this year goes.

Re: Do you want the Canucks' to make the Playoffs in 2014/15

ok, the question of this thread is a lot harder to answer after watching a Connor McJesus highlight reel.

Re: Do you want the Canucks' to make the Playoffs in 2014/15

I dunno why everyone is so anxious to trase Hansen. :?
Or keep putting Kassian in the top 6.
Still a chance that he will be a bust[/quote]

Because Hansen in no way depicts the vision the team now has, and Kassian more than deserves to be in the top 6.

Re: Canucks second line - 2014-2015?

Sedin-Sedin-Vrbata Jensen-Bonino-Burrows Higgins-Matthias-Hansen Vey-Richardson-Kassian/Horvat So it looks like this could be the lineup... The rookies (Kassian, Horvat, Jensen & Vey) could be moving around between 2nd & 4th lines. 8-)[/quote] Kassian should be, and deserves to be on line #2. not a ...

Re: Canucks sign Radim Vrbata

For what its worth, I agree with points made by HW and Clam on this. We just got rid of someone who didnt want to be here, and here we are arguing about a player who would take a bullet. I agree that the only way Burr is moved is if it is for cap space reasons, resulting in a trade for a non-questio...

Re: Canucks sign Radim Vrbata

I like this idea. Nicely played. nicely played LOL ... given the fact that Kesler was the most popular Canucks' player (in terms of jerseys' you see fans wearing at games) but left on somewhat "bad" terms, it would be good P.R. if the Canucks offered "free" alterations for fans who want to replace K...

Re: CANUCKS SIGN RYAN MILLER

A good businessman looking at the Canucks situation probably wouldn't think it is a good business decision to throw 18 million at Miller when the REALITY is that the difference between he and Lack is not enough for this team to make the playoffs. They get 41 homes dates with or without Ryan Miller....

Re: CANUCKS SIGN RYAN MILLER

The Miller signing is part of the foundational philosophy of this management team to build offense beginning with a solid defensive system. And obviously if your goalie isn't stopping pucks you are starting from center ice way too often. As others have noted, you are NOT going to start a season with...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2013-14

I've heard some inside scoopage that there is a good chance Iginla signs here. I understand he has a home in Kelowna? And heard that him and Linden are friends not to mention Benning and Iginlas relationship Yes, Iginla has had a home here for years. You see him around a lot in the summer. And of c...

Re: Canucks second line - 2014-2015?

Some good points made , and some not so good ones. All I can say is that for the first time in a long time, I have complete confidence in Canucks management and direction. It will be interesting to see if Desjardins completes that trifacta of confidence for me once the season is in play.

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2013-14

Starting to get some intel. Of course unconfirmed. Other potential moves expected to clear out dead weight. Canucks dead serious trying to move up to draft the 1st overall. Partly because of who they want to pick, and it will be a local boy, and partly for the PR optics and having the 1st overall. ...

Re: Kesler has requested a trade

I agree, it's time to turn the Kesler page asap. He is not the off ice character of individual that this team needs, and on-ice, if successful, it can be a turning point for the organization
