Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2013-14

Some twitter fodder out there that Bob McKenzie is saying if the Penguins lose tonight that Malkin will be made available. Add to that that Bylsma most likely gets fired as well. Would make for an interesting offseason, especially with the Penguins interest in Kesler. @AndrewBerkshire McKenzie sayin...

Re: (Poll) Who do you want to be the Canucks next Head Coach

Aquamarine just ate a high profile coach - John Torterellas contract. Trotz for splash and name will be highly sought after, do you not think that it's going to be very expensive to hire Trotz as he is in the drivers seat? Do the Canucks want to be spending that kind of dough on a 'brand name' coac...

Re: Who Can Be The Canucks New GM?

From day new it appears Benning was Trevor's real choice and as time has gone on other good candidates have certainly been lost. Let's hope the Dreger rumours of a deal being in place as soon as the second round ends are accurate. It's interesting though because as far as we know, Trevor has really...

Re: Who Can Be The Canucks New GM?

Can take Futa off the list:

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie 1h
Scratch LA's Mike Futa as a candidate for any vacant NHL GM jobs, including VAN. Futa has a new deal/promotion to remain with the Kings.

Re: Who Can Be The Canucks New GM?

It's Benning's job to turn down as far as I can tell. Don't be surprised if Naslund is brought in in some capacity as well.

Re: Who Can Be The Canucks New GM?

Speaking of GM's RD, your boy NoNuts in Toronto appears to be in some hot water over his drafting record. Guess he spent all his luck giving Gillis those awesome draft picks to work with. http://www.torontosun.com/2014/05/03/sharks-movement-to-keep-mclellan-could-stall-coaching-carousel The Leaves, ...

Re: 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Habs can't stop attacking the bruiners, once you sit back the bruins will pounce on it. Nice comeback by the Bruins, hope this series goes 7 games. Create traffic in front of the net, get dirty goals wot. A Canuck-like collapse in the third. Good to see we aren't the only ones capable of doing such...

I like TM's style of play and candor better than Trotz, but both are great coaches - would be happy with either.

Was bound to happen... and I'm glad it is. There are some good quality candidates out there, especially if LA can complete the comeback and hold onto their third period lead.

Have to think that Benning is already giving his input.

I hope so but the value has to be decent otherwise you hope you have a coach who realizes he's a good third line player and not a top 6 guy.

Anyone else think the league may throw Linden a bone for all his hard work getting the lockout to end and let the Canucks win the lottery tomorrow :)

Ya it's interesting; I heard this the other day but kind of dismissed it and then Gary Mason comes on the radio and talks about it too. I heard it's coming from the very top, ie Luigi the father, so FA might not be fully on board given his fandom. Luigi Is pure business though, if he thinks he's max...

Re: How to fix the Canucks defense?

An interesting quote from D. Sutter via the Edmonton Journel and NOH: http://www.nicholsonhockey.com/worthreading/2014/3/9/kings-sutter-on-puck-possession-hockey Sutter says the Kings’ seemingly defend-first game is a “misconception.

Re: Kesler has requested a trade

So basically a MSL type of return. Glad MG didn't! Take it. And I don!t really think Kesler wants out. I think he wants change and a chance to win. He want's some wingers to play with FFS! I don't blame him. With the defensive structure of this team it would be interesting to see where this team wo...
