Re: 2020 NHL Draft

But in Blobs mind, the Kings are deeper, lol. Go figure. um... of course the Kings prospect pool is deeper. we removed Pettersson and Hughes from the prospect pool and added them to the NHL pool. sure we out drafted them, but we did it so well that their pool is now deeper than ours as we took our ...

That said it will be interesting to see them tap dance around the cap this summer.
nothing to tap dance about. You let Schaller, Lievo and perhaps Stetcher walk, you can afford everyone.

Why do people confuse "cap teams" (canucks) with "cap hell" (Leaves)

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

The only people on the block going into the TDD are: Baertschi (we want to clear his 2021 cap) Goldobin (he isn't making our team, want an asset back) Ericksoongone (want to clear his life from the cap) all the rest of them we keep. Need the Sutter (when back) depth down the middle, need the Levio (...

Re: LOL

I wonder how HF/canucks Twitter is dealing with being called out as the annoying fringe by Burkie? It's funny I listened to the team for the first time in a while and they've doubled down on the ridiculous twitter fan base, they were still criticising the Miller trade ffs, but Sportsnet is calling ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

This summer is not a big deal. In fact, our cap 'issues' are not that big. Benning just can't make a big mistake is all.

There is wiggle room for a little mistake

See which one performs best in the 4th round this year and take it from there. At what.. Ping pong?? Ye of little faith. ;) Though I should rephrase; "See which one performs better putting us in a position to play in the fourth round" While I like your blind faith, if we get out of the 1st round (h...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I still would like to see Eriksson benched and MacEwen, Lind or even Baertschi take his spot. Or, bring up Rafferty for a few games. We do need to see how his game translates to the NHL too. I love the winning streak, but the kids need some seasoning. I doubt JB will send Eriksson to Utica because ...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

I kinda wish now that we could have scored lucic for eriksson, he’d definitely help in the toughness department. They are both wastes of roster spots. But, Lucic has an extra year of cap hell for Calgary. That cap hit is way worse than the slight improvement Lucic might be in the lineup. I'd rather...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Boucher had his shots at the NHL. Simply put, his AHL game doesn't translate the the NHL level. Pick your reasons (skating, slow shot realease, etc.) but it is what it is. Boucher is a career AHL star. He will make a few million playing hockey. That's his lot in life. I wish people would quit saying...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I don't understand what 'coaching style' has to do with Brock's (or anyone else's) offence. Coaches don't control wether someone shoots or passes. Dumps and chases or dangles. At best, they tell a player to shoot more and show video on a higher percentage play. Coaches teach defense and systems (lik...
