Re: Canucks Young Guns

I don't recall whether P. Forsberg stayed in the SHL that long out of choice or because of limited opportunity. Quebec had Sakic, Sundin, and Ricci down the middle. I also don't know that it was best for Forsberg to stay in the SHL rather than come over sooner -- it worked out, but that doesn't mean...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

So, in all likely hood, if Erickson stays up with the team, and Gaudette sent down to start, we need to move a roster guy on Forward. Joulevi is first defensive call up, and we know we need 8-10 defencemen, so we best not move one. Just working with forwards. (If Gaudette stays, then Sutter MUST be...

Re: Canucks Pre Season; 2019/2020; Shake It Out.

It's just early preseason folks, Leivo shaking off the rust. No, that's his game. In the spring... Leivo — acquired from the Toronto Maple Leaves for Michael Carcone back in December – has scored 10 goals in 4 9 games with the Canucks , playing most frequently along side Elias Pettersson and Brock ...

Re: Canucks Contracts

(3) When Boeser comes due for the next contract, he will be 25 and the next contract will cover only prime plus years. If he excels, he's going to be in a great spot. So will the Canucks -- by re-signing a star or by trading one. Why would the Canucks be in a good spot trading a star player? (Or di...

Re: Canucks Pre Season; 2019/2020; Shake It Out.

Leivo should be on that list. :lol: Saint hates Leivo like the dude and Gillis I don't hate Leivo. It is just that he is the most dangerous kind of not-all-that-good player. The one whose mistakes are less perceptible (but just as meaningful to the objective of scoring goals and keeping pucks out o...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

Well Jim Benning has done his job this offseason, If there was an “Off-season GM of the Year” award Jimbro’s got this by a country mile. When you compare what he’s done this off season vs Mr. “overrated Ken Holland” has done with that useless franchise in Edmonton it’s not even close Holland is ter...

Re: Canucks Pre Season; 2019/2020; Shake It Out.

Two spots, 12th and13th forwards, for four players that have to clear waivers. Motte, Schaller, Goldobin, Eriksson Eriksson over Goldobin in the first games. He scored, Goldobin nothing that stood out. Probably see Motte and Schaller tonight vrs Edmonton. Leivo should be on that list. Motte and Gol...

Re: Canucks Contracts

A few reasons why this deal makes sense for Boeser and the Canucks. (1) Boeser has guaranteed lifetime earnings money. By which I mean, if he isn't a fool and he happens to get injured, he will have what he needs to not have to be concerned about future work. This should be a floor target for all pl...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Arizona is a terrible! Terrible franchise. And they have a team that can compete for the very same playoff spots the Canucks are competing for. They were -10 on goal differential and had 86 points. The hill they must climb is smaller than the Canucks. Like the Canucks, many of the contributing play...

Re: The Brexit disaster

1) The main focus has been on leaving being economic suicide, or at least economic self injury behaviour. Economic growth will suffer, and especially if the UK leaves without a deal. At least 60% of UK trade is with the EU. In a no deal situation, all companies relying on imports and all companies ...

Re: The Brexit disaster

When the referendum was held, no one knew the details of what Brexit would bring. Today they have a written document that explains the terms of the divorce, and thus the voters would actually have a pretty good idea of what Brexit means, and thus be able to make an informed decision. When the refer...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

I love how Nylander has 2 61 point seasons in 2 full years by age 21 and 1 time late 20's 50's point players get 6-7.15 and Nylander's contract is outrageous. LOL "There are even worse contracts" logic is as sloppy as "we could have drafted Point, what a wasted pick!" The Leaves paid a million more...
