Re: Captain my Captian

Wow, such animosity. Didn’t realize people had such strong feelings about honouring important ambassadors. Vancouver has a rich tradition of quality individuals leading the franchise. Hank and Daniel trumped anything Naslund, Linden and Smyl ever accomplished. What’s the big issue with them handing ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Boston deals Adam McQuaid to the Rag$ for Kampfer, a 4th and a cond 7th.

I find this encouraging as it suggests there is a market this time of year for player movement, and the Benning should be on the horn looking to shed dead weight.

Re: Captain my Captian

I have no problem with Danne and Hank coming down to the Rog for a standing 'O', and handing out the letter's to the new leadership core.

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

If Gadjovich can continue his development, he could be an ideal 3rd liner that plays hard, hits hard, pots the odd goal and sticks up for his mates.

Jonah Gaudette Virtanen would be a terrific checking line that could counter attack with the best of them. Speed, size and tenacity.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Brock's shot is absolutely lethal, but that clip isn't even a display of this. His ability so slow the pace down and set himself up is a skill you just can't teach. Once he reaches his playing weight and improves his quickness, the sky is the limit for this kid. He's pretty special. It's exciting wh...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Bo, Gaunce and Hutton are the only players left that were drafted by the last regime. If you include the entire league, Connauton and Schroeder round out the abysmal era that was Gillis & co. 37 draft picks over six entry drafts and only one single legitimate player. :shock: Absolutely appalling.

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

This is obviously a huge promotion for RC. Hard not to wonder if his departure had anything to do with Linden leaving too.

Re: Who would rather see this place without the Dude/Doc vs Blob/IN flame war?

Blocking certain users to bypass the bullshit isn’t always an option, since not all users are “blockable”.

Too much derailment on every interesting thread. Summer or no, the ‘mods’ need to do there job or be asked to step down.

If true, I wonder what Bergiven had offered up.

Re: Canucks Contracts

Or,

We could see how he handles the inevitable adversity he’s bound to face given more enhanced checking and potential physical set-backs coming off wrist surgery and back rehab.

That was a nasty collision.

No rush

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Hughes wanted to play in Van this year. It was Management, the coaching staff and likely his father that encouraged him to return to Michigan for one more year. In the end, he made the right choice and now he’s letting his Wolverine mates know he’s coming back to lead them to the promised land. Noth...

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

Any info out there on what Trevor's contract status was? Was his original deal with the AIG not for 4 years?

Puck drop is two months from now. Plenty of movement throughout the league will take place before then.

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

I look forward to some serious summer news coming outta the Rog that is actually hockey related.

It'll boost morale for training camp, and put this nonsense behind us.

Tick tock Jim, you're on the clock.
