Re: HNIC may leave CBC :)

For those who aren't familiar with territory east of the Rockies. Population of Ontario: 13m Population of people in the Eastern time zone: 21m Population of BC (and in the Pacific Time Zone): 4m If there are national broadcasts, they will be of the Leaves, and they will be on at 4pm. Forever and ev...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Looking over their lineup I have convinced myself the Leaves are going to completely SUCK this year. Hmm. Looks to me like they're going to do better than the Canucks this year. The Leaves have lost a lot of depth! ... So yeah, they've lost a lot of depth on both offense and defense = a few good in...

Re: Ballard on waivers

I think your missing a couple of my points. There is no point in giving up assets for a player with a contract that you can get as a UFA. And you're missing one of his. I'll repeat it: at the time, Gillis didn't KNOW he could get an equivalent player as a UFA. Anyway, this has been done to death. T...

Re: 2013 FA Thread

There were injuries and distractions, no question that they played a part, but I just don't think this team is a lock for a top 3 spot. If the new divisional alignment had existed last year, we would have finished in the top 3 ( barely , 59pts to SJ 57). Of course, if the new divisional alignment h...

Re: 2013 FA Thread

Considering the Canucks lack of cap space, I think they've done rather well. Yep. The FA signings are good and in general I'm happy with the off season moves (or lack thereof in some cases). My main concern is still that our top 4 D is dysfunctional as it is currently constructed. Basically, there ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I guess people can stop ragging on the Leaves for the Kessel trade now. I take Tyler Seguin and Dougie Hamilton 11 times out of 10 over Phill Kessel. Not to mention Kessel is a UFA while the other two are cost controlled for the next several years. I realize that it's de rigueur around here to hate...

Re: 2013 FA Thread

Having Booth healthy is like getting a shitty ufa. fyp.... Too bad he got hurt. Would have liked to seen him bought out as well. How soon we forget that he scored 15G in 51 games two years ago with the Canucks. If that's the kind of production we get, that's worth 4.2m on the open market easily. I ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Seems to me that Seguin might have got a case of the Hodgson's or something. You know thinking he deserves promotion up through the lineup despite his play. I also don't think he was a part of the core just yet and they clearly decided that they weren't sure he could be a part of the true core this...

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

. Is it too much to ask for 1 more game when Thomas gave it his all in each and every one his 7?? "Gave it his all", like when he threw away game 2 nine seconds into overtime in a Cloutier-esque manner? Lou would have been publicly executed if he'd let that goal in. The double standard continues.

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

It's reasonable to have a debate on who the better goalie has been/will be. There are arguments for both sides. Lou has been (and likely will continue to be) very, very good. If he can win a cup and keep it up for a few more years his career numbers might get into Brodeur territory and we might be t...

Re: 2013 Draft

I can't find my words. This is easily the stupidest trade by Gillis and he has made some doozies. So what would you have done instead? Traded to Edmonton for higher pick and player/prospect. Don't think not having in same division is worth losing that much value. How do you know that was on the tab...
