Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Come on man, you know we suck at lotteries. On the other hand, if the pick was in Tampa's hands...yikes :hmmm: Yes, we must confuse and befuddle the Hockey Gods - give up the pick this year, then our pick will for sure win the lottery BUT the NHL has nerfed the lottery so it goes back to only being...

Yeah, he's Utica-bound next season, and I would be surprised if he doesn't know it already.
Hoglander's probably already looking forward to headhunting other teams' top prospects in the A :devil:

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

IF there's at least 1 CBO... I now believe that won't happen. :| I don't think a compliance buy-out will happen either. But I do think a Covid buy-out will likely happen. :P In all seriousness I think it still happens. Enough teams were going to be strapped close to the cap with players to re-sign,...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

If you’ve already earned 66 million, 14 million isn’t that big of a deal. 66 million (or half that after taxes) is more than enough if invested properly to take care of him and his kids for life. Not to mention he’ll still earn money doing something. Same argument will he made for Louie when he cal...

Re: Past Canuck Players

I maintain, over a seven game series, the Canucks scored a total of eight goals. And you blame the goalie! :roll: I said he was great in the three wins. He was absolutely putrid in three of the losses and pretty weak in game 7. Yes the offence dried up. That will happen when you’re trailing 3 or 4 ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

He has his ring, he has his money. Whatever else is going on in his life overrules any desire to be a pro athlete. All the power to him, walking away when he wants. That's pretty consistent with what the guys on the Chiclets podcast said whenever this dispute came up. They think he's just as happy ...

BTW alotta in the know folk are saying Buffy has no intention of ever resuming his career... That doesn't make sense - what reason could Byfuglien have to drop his grievance AND terminate his contract, unless he was going to go for a new contract? If he wants to retire, he doesn't file a grievance ...

Re: LOL

You know, he wasn't really exaggerating. The main reason I actually came over here was for my mental health. There's a fog of depression that hangs heavy over that board that with repeated, daily exposure can get a man down in the dumps in the dead of the dreary, overcast Vancouver winter. It's not...

Re: NHL Season suspended - Now what?

Anybody hear the NBA rumour floating around? They would take over Vegas, put teams up in the deserted hotels in a quarantine, and play through the games at MGM, T-Mobile, UNLV, and just get'er done in an isolated setting. I think that's an excellent idea, and Vegas is ideally situated with the huge ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

So in the end we really didn't get much for Burrows and Hansen. Goes to show you that the wisdom of tanking and dumping vets doesn't always work out the way you(or some people) think it should. The funniest part is that for many, those trades signalled the beginning of a rebuild that in reality was...

Re: LOL

However I'm not sure I would ever want to see the place change drastically from what it is. Vancouver has a long tradition of having a section of extremely negative sports fans and a place like HF offers a sort of steam valve to that rather vocal contingent. If anything it might be best for it to s...

Re: Past Canuck Players

Finally, someone takes Kesler! If you go by his peak season he was fantastic. Too bad it was only one single season Compared to some guys getting on there like Rypien and Cassels?! Kes had 5 straight healthy seasons of over 20 goals, three straight over 25 goals, and one crazy 41-goal season. Then ...

Re: Past Canuck Players

I always thought this team needs a RS D-man with a big shot more than anything, basically a Sami Salo type. I figured it wouldn't hurt to add some scoring punch, grit and some of the all-time best Canucks. :D 1) Nasi-Petey-Bert 2) Dank-Hank-Bure 3) Miller-Kes-Jake 4) Ferkland-BoHo-Linden - Brocksta...
