Re: Canucks Young Guns

This is an even more detailed version of what Dahlen has been saying and his thought pattern; https://canucksarmy.com/2019/03/05/jonathan-dahlen-deletes-social-media-due-to-hateful-messages-from-canucks-fans/ As for development, Dahlen is quoted in that article as saying, "I have not been able to d...

Re: 2019 offseason

Am I the only sane person here that thinks Goldy will and should be gone? I think he should be given another shot and see a lot in his game, but I still don't think its better than about a 1/4 chance that he works out to be a reliable top 6 guy in this league. Nothing insane about cutting bait on t...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Looking for articles on Pettersson (I found a few, but behind pay walls that I don't want to sign up for) I stumbled across two short notices on Dahlén on the SVT (Swedish Television) website: Jonathan Dahlén about the hard times: ”I was being vilified” After the hard time in the AHL the hockey tal...

Re: 2019 offseason

I don’t think Goldobin clears waivers. If we sign him it will be on the cheap and his occasional offensive flashes will make him an enticing reclamation project for someone. If he doesn’t fit on the team in Benning, or Green’s eyes, I’d rather they move him for something. I don't think there would ...

Re: Offseason grades so far

. . Adam Gaudette was drafted to be a point producer not a defensive specialist or a penalty killer. If that is the role he's now expected to play, he should be traded. A fifth round draft pick is drafted to maybe possibly make it to the NHL. If he provides any special value to the NHL team (whethe...

Re: Offseason grades so far

Three more years of Beagle isn't looking very encouraging. https://canucksarmy.com/2019/04/29/canucksarmy-year-in-review-jay-beagle/ This article is a very negative portrayal but none the less, has accuracies that are notable. I didn't think that article was negative overall -it had the data to sho...

This will be a $9.5M AAV, with almost $45M in bonuses
That's crazy $9.5M AAV

Re: 2019/20 Pacific Division

Coyotes getting a lot of love . Yes, they added the biggest name in the Pac with Kessel, but their leading scorer got 47 points, and nobody got 20 goals. And that was a season with almost no injuries. Lacked injury... sarcasm? Nick Schmaltz missed half the season. He was brought in to be a top line...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Finland-based scout @FCHockey & NHL analyst Lassi Alanen: Canucks picks Nils Höglander with 40th pick. Great value at that spot. One of the most skilled players in the entire draft.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Nils Hoglander has uber skills. That's good. Because while 1/3 of the second rounders will make a career in the NHL and another third might make a career in the AHL/Europe, the last third need to have the skills to drive a car for cash. Or join the circus. Hoglander can uber drive you to the airpor...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

The other reason I want to see the time equally split is that Markstom's contract is up after 19/20 and the team may want to resign him. If both goalies get along well and both respond well with Ian Clarke, be great for our upcoming dynasty, beginning this fall. :) We're going to lose one of Markst...
