Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Isn't it ironic that you guys go on and on for years about the Leaves cap and yet Vancouver is in worse shape? Well since our cap projection is based upon 24-26 players we will be fine when the roster is reduced. We will tight against the cap once Boeser is signed and roster reduced no question. Bu...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

. Willie Nylander has decided to wear number 88 this year. https://i.giphy.com/media/irBV6ElkK52eQIhMcl/giphy.webp Yes and in a great PR move he is offering to replace any old Nylander jersey for the new one. All fans have to do is take the old one back for the exchange. I think this is a solid mov...

Re: Let's get creative with Erikkson...

August 8, 2017 via pro hockey rumours: Over the last three seasons in particular, we’ve seen a number of so-called “ mutual terminations ”. In fact, we’ve seen more mutual terminations over this period than buyouts. They are just as they sound – when a player and team decide their prior arrangement...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

I don’t know who he scouted, who he drafted or is exact influence in Boston. I do know Lucic was upset he left Boston and said Benning’s departure made it possible for him and other guys to contemplate leaving someday. Lucic said Benning was more influential and responsible for helping to assemble t...

Re: Offseason grades so far

I think everyone is saying the same thing really. We aren’t a Cup contender notwithstanding anything can happen in the playoffs. We are trying to be a playoff team. The experience of pushing to make the playoffs, then pushing to go as deep as you can is a prerequisite for almost all Cup winners. St....

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I hope Benning holds firm. Let’s see how Louie likes Utica. Or......get out there Berry and find a market. He has permission to do so, so I’ve been told. Team might want to play they young kids in Utica - is there even room for him there? Kalamazoo might be an option? How would that be perceived in...

Fuck me. Torres was a beast.

I remember a lot of his hits. I remember at the time thinking he didn’t deserve all the criticism. Seeing them again I’m like, no, he was a head hunter. LOL

Benning has all the leverage and I hope he knows it.
Which leverage is this ?
She means the leverage to force Loui to waive wherever Jimmy says.

Or it's off to the gulag AKA Utica.
It’s nice to be understood :lol:

Re: Offseason grades so far

Benning is on board, Linden wasn’t. Linden wanted a slower approach, he had a 5 year plan that kept getting, a little, put out of whack. He wanted to trade more players for picks, except Edler. Benning wanted to make a push for the playoffs. Benning’s approach is more in line with ownership. Don’t g...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Blab, what’s the deal with the 3 Finnish darlings of the 2016 WJC’s - Laine, Puljujarvi and Juolevi? The one who received the least amount of fanfare - Sebastian Aho, is the best of the bunch. The other 3? Flakes. Laine sees Aho getting 8.5. You know he won’t settle for anything less and you know h...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Apparently Mariner only wants a 4-5 year offer but teams contemplating an offer sheet won’t unless it’s the full 7 years. Don’t want to give up all those first for 4-5 years only. It would be funny if Columbus offered 4 years at 11 M and leaves matched. Imagine in 4 years when they have to resign bo...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

One thing about Benning is he has shown he can play hardball. Who the fuck does Ericksson think he is anyway. Ya he has a NTC. He wants out. Don’t fucking try to play hardball like Kesler. If there is a team or teams willing to take him without pain on us then just fucking go already. Expecting us t...
