A lot of guys in our price range getting snapped up right now.

Re: Prized Possesions

Canucks specific stuff: - A Kirk McLean signed white face towel that my grandmother gave me from the cupboard to go to my first ever playoff game (game 6) in 1994 against calgary with. - By total fluke, 9 holes of golf with Trevor and 2 of his friends at Northridge G&CC in 1999. I was a single and I...

Re: Prized Possesions

Neat idea for a thread. Off the top of my brain... (The Inheretence): These are my Dad's right now... but as he doesn't bother with message boards, I'll brag for him. Pretty much every "immortal" hall of famer rookie card I can think of. My grandfather's friend was an employee at Parkhurst (the card...

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

90% of the hockey world thinks we got fleeced but 95% of this board thinks it's a great move. :lol: Like I said, shades of Cowpuke... What, exactly, do you do then Rummy? If you are Gillis, you don't have the option of buying Luongo out. Exactly how much of the future do you give up in addition to ...

Yeah, the Staals said that as well. The kid should at least be an NHL'er though. Good offensive numbers in Junior and good pedigree.

2/3 ain't bad.

This buyout get paid again thing is cool.

(I guess he's still not technically playing in Canada)

I hope Hamhuis hipchecks him into an unrenovated row of the Saddledome.

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

An analyst on CBC at the very beginning of the series said something like, "If Vancouver uses their speed and turns this series into a trackmeet, Boston cannot win. If Vancouver slows down and plays Boston's game, the Bruins will take the cup home. " (or something very close) ... Well, the latter h...

Re: Canucks select Hunter Shinkaruk with the #24 pick.

The Flames did similar last year, going off the board, they picked a bunch of college kids. Odd drafting out of cow town the past couple of years. They left an aging core in tact, unwilling to deal for prospects/picks, and also made poor choices giving away draft picks they had for (returning) aged...

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

The guy gave up 8 goals in 7 games, he wins the Cup and Conn Smythe largely due to that series alone and very deservingly so. It was a goaltending performance for the ages...and you use that one goal as an argument??? Weak, dude, weak. "Cloudier-esque"?..holy lord. The 8 goal argument you guys keep...

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

I'll bet it's $90+mil by then. I hoep it doesn't get that high. The talent pool isn't inflating with that pace. Mediocre players in the right circumstance will command 5-6 million just to continue being mediocre :( I get that its all relative... There's another thread saying how terribad Crappiere ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Personally, I could see the appeal in going to a smaller market but growing team like Columbus and being a key piece to their future rather than playing second fiddle in Boston to Lucic, Chara, Bergeron, Krejci, Marchand, etc. If cost of living was a big factor, you’d see every UFA clamouring to si...
