Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

42 points. That's what we want in our top-6? 42 points? Zucker had a meager 5 more points than Virtanen at even strength.....in 11 more games. Ya true that. A 1st-line winger should be putting up 55+ points. 42 points is acceptable for a second line winger, but we have cheaper options that still ha...

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

Ya I call bullshit on the Zaitsev rumour. It reeks of click bait to get large Canadian markets engaged in hockey during a long off-season.

If any team was offering anything for Zaitsev, he'd be gone by now. Instead, Dubas is holding out for somebody to buy him dinner before they fuck him up the ass.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

$8.4M is actually not a terrible hit for Laine. Realistically he should bounce back and be a 40 goal scorer. If someone signs him to that Chevy would still be wise to talk to said team and tell them, hey, I'm gonna match that and then trade this kid elsewhere at that price. Do you wanna play ball? ...

Re: 2019 offseason

The Cat has gone to hell these days. Food and service are the shits. Funny I never gave a fuck about either 25 years ago. I got more ass than a toilet seat at that place. If you went there at the same time as others here, you know what that means don’t ya? :crazy: More interested in what do YOU thi...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Interesting number from Laine, because the offer sheet compensation at $10 mil is not the max (4 1sts). And if someone goes that high, it's likely that the Jets walk - especially since it's a decent chance that whoever takes him will have lottery picks. He had a terrible year, I have a hard time see...

If the draft ended at round 5, Ken Holland would have been out of a job years ago.

Re: Canucks Contracts

A thought..... With all of us having a laugh at the potential for the Maple Leaves to be forced into a hard decision if someone drops an offer sheet on Marner, are we in any kind of similar predicament where Boeser is concerned? Or can we tender a qualifying offer to protect him from an offer sheet...

Re: Canucks Contracts

I won't be surprised with a 2 year deal at $5.5-6. That gives Brock 2 more chances to hit 40 goals, which I think he would have in his rookie year without the wrist injury or he would have last year without the back and wrist recovery. But maybe Benning isn't looking short-term, because of the risk ...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Last year they also let JVR, Bozak, Komarov, Leivo, McElhinney go with nothing coming back in return . (this year it's Gardiner, Hainsey, and Ennis and Zaitsev+ and Marleau+ ) Fixed it for ya. But let's not forget, the source on Marleau waiving is Nick Kypreos, now the MLSE-owned media is running w...

So funny, the leaves are losing three of their top-4d, two as UFA and one will cost an asset to get rid of, when their D was their weak point, and will have no money to upgrade or even replace.... ....and they think their window isn't closed! :towel: Reilly and Muzzin are their top two.

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

That they have so many forwards creating their impending cap crunch is why they have so many ways to solve the problem. They can afford to trade any of their forwards and they will still have a potent offense (in my view). Its as easy to deal RFAs Laine or Connor as Trouba. It is unreasonable to th...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Remember Brock was doing just fine in his rookie year, and likely would have won the Calder without his injury - imagine the Canucks with TWO Calders in a row? He's a natural sniper and the best we had seen since Bure - and is right up there with Elias. Of course, EP has the complete game and makes...

Re: Canucks Contracts

If they can sign him for 8, do it now before he's a perennial 40 goal scorer. I suppose it's possible his agent is pushing for 40-goal money, but this is the one time in the next several years that Benning will have some leverage to get that AAV down. I wouldn't want to bargain away years in duratio...

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

To me Boeser, Peter, Hughes, Bo and the 2019 and 2020 1sts are off the table, especially the 2020 pick. Chevy could get better offers I think Ya fair points. Its tough to say with Americans - sometimes they really like Canadian cities - look at Toronto under Burke, he was signing Americans left rig...
