Re: 2016 Free Agent Hunt

I would devante smith-pelly, brett connolly or loui erikkson. I will be fine with just some second level guys, I like the idea of having a lot of cap room for this season I suspect there might be some very good players available cheap as the season goes on.

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

We used McCann as an asset to get Gudbranson. Not all of the players you draft have to play for you. They become assets you can use to fill the identified gaps.

Re: 2016 Draft Summary

Good offense starts from a strong defense. Last year we had problems getting the puck out of our end,this was a big part of our problems scoring. Once out of our end we have to transition through the neutral zone. Again, not an area we excelled at. Then we have to transition into the offensive zone ...

Re: Canuck select Olli Juolevi - #5 pick

Benning is building the team the right way. It may be hard to be patient but he has the goaltending and now the d in place. We aren't as bad up the middle as people are saying, give Horvat some time. Benning said it well, he just getting to the place where he has the pieces that will allow him to da...

I wonder if Higgins is interested in coaching. He could retire and become an assistant in Utica.

Re: Canucks trade MCCann for Gudbranson

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush (and probably more). I like this trade. Benning filled a big hole with a known commodity. He gave up possibility in McCann and draft choices. But possibility goes both ways, they may or may not work out. I want to be in the playoffs, I want a chance at the...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

the draft is getting more interesting by the moment. I don't think the order is guaranteed in any way.

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

I like the plan. I think Benning is layering the team so he won't ever be forced to dump a bunch of players because they all need big raises at the same time. He recognizes the game is always in transition and if you draft and develop well you can keep moving players up from with in and not have to ...

Datsyuk does count against the cap and he feels bad about that. I thin we are in a good position for stamkos

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15-16

I would think Columbus would like a Finn. The canucks may be able to get the canadian version of Puljarvi with Dubois. I would hate to see the canucks trade up, unless it is a steal. Trading down may be an option. I would love to see a couple more second round picks, I think there are some real slee...

If Dubois is not available I would consider trading if I could get two firsts this year.

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

I bet Jared Mccann is relieved. Did more research on who might be left for us. Dubois could be the sleeper of the draft. We are going to get a good player, I can be patient for them to make it (as long as I don't die of old age first, which is always a possibility). I am ok with not having an 18 yea...
