Re: Canucks select Jared McCann at #24

At the time we desperately needed a top six centre and for whatever reasons Kopitar, who showed upside, dropped. I think BB blew his wad to justify the pick. Luc was a good pick for us but Kopitar would have been the better pick, picking for position and was still the best player available. Luc was...

Jokinen is 31. 31+4 = 35.

Re: Rumor: burrows to Florida?!?

That is really fucking steep. Our top RW, one of our top-3 forward prospects, and the 6th overall. Burrows had 5 goals last year, 3 years left on his deal and is 33 years old. He represents negative trade value. Shinkaruk would represent (partially) the cost to move up in the draft as well as move ...

Re: Kesler has requested a trade

Agreed, some team will step up huge. The piece that puts them over the top. I think Benning has the potential to pull a "Nieuwendyk for Iginla" type trade here....if ownership will let him. Kesler has those intangibles that would make a team part with that caliber of prospect, knowing Kesler gives ...

Re: A Rudderless Ship

How bad was the Bernier trade ? How many 2nd and 3rd round picks actually make the NHL let alone play 500 games nad play in the top nine for contending teams and fucking contribute in the playoffs ? You act like Bernier was paid 4 million a season and counted on to be a huge part of the team. He pr...

Re: A Rudderless Ship

There were plenty of ways to get under the cap. Especially for a team that wants to "juggle". You know what - Gillis DID do a good job juggling the cap that year. See, I don't piss on everything Gills does. It's called being objective. But don't kid yourself, the biggest help Gillis got was Salo go...

Re: A Rudderless Ship

"Logical" to trade one of your only two RH-shot defensemen. :crazy: Maybe Gillis just doesn't concern himself with things like that? I mean Gillis swapped out Salo (RH) for Garrison (LH) leaving himself with only Bieksa as a regular RH defenseman last year so it's hardly a stretch to think he would...
