Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

No word on an extension, which doesn't surprise me. As Skyo points out, the Sharks have to renew 20 contracts for next year, so they could very well have just loaded up for Jumbola last run.

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Blob, here's my take on Holland: Detroit won 3 cups with Scotty Bowman's team. Pre salary cap, they were a UFA powerhouse. Post-salary cap is when Holland put his stamp on the team. He fluked out with Zetterberg and Datsyuk. But he was also significantly aided by the decades-ago draft picks of Capta...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

According to Garrioch:
Sources say the
#Sens
have dealt Erik Karlsson to the Sharks in exchange for Chris Tierney, Dylan DeMelo, Josh Norris, Rudolfs Balcers, 2020 1st, 2019 2nd and two conditional picks.
If that's the case, then damn, the canucks had comparable trade chips.

San Jose it is!
Guessing for Karlsson. 8-)

Edit*
Dreger just said SJ players being informed of trade to Ottawa! Oh shit.
Dammit we needed him to stay in the east! Preferably Tampa to keep the Laffs out of the second round!

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Sorry I should have replied in this thread rather than the Luongo thread.

Its just been so damn long since we actually talked hockey on here! My bad.

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Lol okay blob, pulling out a 5-year old post, which looks at draft picks from 32-12 years ago. Especially hilarious that Emmerton is brought up as "fair to assume will reach the 200 game threshold", since I'm pretty sure he hasn't played in the NHL since that post! :lol: But thanks for resuscitating...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

The Wings broke in a lot of good kids during Ken Holland’s watch over the years. You think Zetterberg, Datsyuk and Kronwall started in the heir 30s? He didn’t always want a veteran team, Ridiculous. Teams go through ups and downs and he has a few cups. And Detroit does have some good prospects othe...

Just saying Troy Stecher is one year away from his rookie success with 3g21a-24pts, almost 20TOI, 125shots, and both he and EK are 190lbs ahah, he'd make sense to be included in the multi-piece package. 3GIOql7-lVg He isn’t close to a legit young top 4. Haven't you read Canucks Army lately? Cuuzzzz...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I think Petersson is already penciled in, but I think Dahlen is the guy who makes the team out of camp.

Pre-EP, he was our best prospect IMO, and after recovering from mono his stock has only risen. He clutched up in the Swedish playoffs, and I think he'll be ready for training camp-crunch time.

I used to be a Cincinnati Reds fan back in the day. Margie ruined that for me and the current ownership and management have ensured I’ll likely never be a fan of the team again.

I ventured over there this morning and took a look in the utica thread, and holy shit bad goalie has got to be one of the worst at evaluating a team.

Botchfart is off to the Athletic. I guess I can read the Province again. I don’t like Botchford... but who do you consider a good read in Wetcouver? For Canucks that is.., #1. A tie between Strangelove, HW, Blob, RD, DHA #2. For me, the only decent local media is the Kurtenbloggers. I know others d...

Re: E. Karlsson -> Canucks

He won’t be playing out his contract in Ottawa unless he has an extension in place. What do you mean? Do you think he'll sit out to demand/force a trade? No, if the Senators can’t re-sign him they will trade him. I can’t see them getting Tavaresed Ah okay gotcha. But I think I was trying to say tha...
