Re: Gills and Vigneault

The shine is certainly wearing off our favourite droopy eyed GM in the view of Canucks fans. Some of it is justified. We hammered Nonis for not finding suitable 3rd & 4th line centres, and when Manny became a pirate and Lapierre entrenched himself as borderline 4th line centre this past season all G...

Re: Coaches canned

A few thoughts on Torts: -The notion of him being strictly a defensive minded coach is overblown. He had no problem encouraging the Lightning to push the pace when they had an offensive team. The Rangers roster was best suited for lock-down, grind it out hockey despite having Gaborik and Nash up fro...

Re: Should Gillis Trade Alexander Edler?

I'm not against trading Edler in the right deal but replacing his offensive production and puck moving ability from the blue-line will be extremely difficult, so the offensive piece coming back in return has to be significant. Part of me wants to see how Edler will perform under a new coach next sea...

Re: Coaches canned

This whole coaching too much defense or not developing young players criticism of coaches remains infinitely amusing. If you look closely at every successful NHL coach, you will find most have had difficulties with some young players (some aren't as ready as some fans may think) and most have coache...

Re: The Leaves will win atleast 2 rounds in the East

If we had an 82 game season, there's a chance the Leaves would slip out of the playoffs.

Win 2 rounds?

Bahaha

Re: Trade Deadline Day Trades and Rumours

MG was prepared to take it up the back side and accommodate Luongo and Nonis just had to try take more. I would be pretty pissed right now if I were still a Leaf fan. Most Leaves fans are too stupid to understand this. They actually think Luo's contract is a major poison pill when they've been a te...

Re: Trade Deadline Day Trades and Rumours

I think the most disappointing thing about Luongo and the deadline is the nominal return the Canucks can expect for him. I have no doubt that someone will take Luo's contract without leaving the Canucks with a cap hit, especially after Mike Smith signs a big deal and teams see the sticker price on R...

Re: GDT - Coilers @ canucks, 7pm - SN-Pac

Incredible how things fall in place so much more seamlessly when a team has two legitimate top 6 centres on the ice. This was the first game since Kesler broke his foot that the Canucks were able to fully dictate play for the majority of the game. It wasn't as simple as Roy stepping in and making ev...

Yeah, the first would be the future piece, but Kulemin is the type of top 9 winger for a playoff run they're looking for with guys like Clowe off the market.

Re: Trade Deadline Day Trades and Rumours

I actually like Kulemin. He's a very strong skater who controls the puck very well in the offensive zone, especially down low. He's more of a top 9 forward than a 2nd line winger but he's someone who can definitely help this team. Kulemin, a first & a D prospect isn't exactly a massive haul, but som...

Re: Trade Deadline Day Trades and Rumours

The extension talk is b.s. They can't even extend him anyways until the summer. Any talk regarding an extension would be a verbal agreement to extend him in the summer. It can be as simple as, will you be open to remaining with us beyond this contract, yes or no. Making a deal and vaguely inquiring...

Re: Trade Deadline Day Trades and Rumours

So the Flames are seriously considering taking Kipper over Luo? Oh, and they want to extend Kipper by a year or two at a similar cap hit as now, taking him until he's almost 39-40... How the fuck is that much different than taking Luo and his big contract years until he's 39-40? MG is either scoffin...

Re: Canucks Acquire Derek Roy

The 2nd round pick for a halfway decent rental is a foregone conclusion and as long as the Canucks kept Jensen, Gaunce and Corrado, I was good with Connauton being traded. Connauton is a left side D with defensive issues and a booming shot. He'll probably never be as good as either of Edler or Garri...

Re: Has AV's time come?

I've barely visited the corner the past couple of months, but I've missed nothing. I could have parachuted in after the season and I'd get the same regurgitated bullshit from the same people. One trick ponies not by choice, but by physical limitations. Anyways, I have no issue with replacing AV with...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

He may be a little slow for our forward group but I'd love to have him on a wing with Schroeder and Raymond. ... He won't bring a home run return, a couple of picks and maybe a prospect. But if there is a team that sees him as the missing piece then he could get a decent return. I would gladly take...
