Re: Nash to the Rangers.

It seems that you don’t accept the existence of “lots of self proclaimed experts” as fact. I don't even know what you mean by that. "Self proclaimed" means someone has outwardly proclaimed that they are an expert. Unless someone has delusions of grandeur, I don't recall anyone proclaiming him or he...

Re: Nash to the Rangers.

There's lots of self proclaimed experts. That's why it's good to reference third parties, even though they're not perfect either. Not sure why you're taking exception since my initial post .... You seem to be confusing a statement of fact for exception. No, your so called statement of fact's tone i...

Re: Nash to the Rangers.

Oh for fuck sakes Clem, give spudly some credit for doing some research and forming is own opinions rather than regurgitating pap spewed elsewhere on the interweeble. His opinions may be flawed at times, but at least they are his opinions and he stands by them. Full credit given. I've seen plenty o...

Re: Nash to the Rangers.

Oh and hockeys future while having nice message boards (some not all) is notoriously out to lunch on prospect ratings because every writer rates things differently and in in general those writers aren't any different than the people on this board.... fans who fancy themselves experts. Bingo. It doe...

Re: Nash to the Rangers.

Independent (from club alliance), third party opinions tend to be more credible than blowhards who like to talk about themselves. When was I talking about myself? Your post began with three sentences, containing... I'm I I Your priorities are showing. Apparently, you didn't notice the habit. And I ...

Re: Nash to the Rangers.

If we use HF's definition of a prospect (less than 65 NHL games & under 24yrs) & their player success probability , the Canucks with roughly equal probability of success (as Erixon) are: Lack, Kassian, Duco, & Tanev. I think you're misinterpreting HF's system of ranking players (which is hard to bl...

Re: Nash to the Rangers.

I agree. Good center depth, Erixson would easily be our best prospect and a first rounder is always a valuable chip. I dont think the return for Lu will be as good though. If we can get a really good prospect and a center for the 3rd line I will be happy. If we use HF's definition of a prospect (le...

Re: Nash to the Rangers.

The return for Nash was not all that bad people. Again, I would be happy with a similar return for Luongo. I agree. Good center depth, Erixson would easily be our best prospect and a first rounder is always a valuable chip. I dont think the return for Lu will be as good though. If we can get a real...

Re: Semin

Start with one conservative coach (Kirk Muller), add a highly paid flake, toss in playoff aspirations, & stir it up until boiling point reached.

No doubt the GM wants his new, expensive toy to get enough ice time to justify the expense.

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

There is a thread over at Hockeysfuture that says there is a rumour floating out there that a Canadian team is about to Offer Sheet Jamie Benn. Could be a bunch fluff as it always is but hey, let's play with this dream for a while now that the Weber and Schultz dreams are over....maybe this is the ...
