Re: OOTS: 2013-14

Canes in overtime! Given that the Canucks beat the Canes 2x this season, all we can afford is one point tonight via overtime in order to secure the 6th pick. Wouldn't the ROW (Regular and OT wins) be the tie breaker before 'head to head'? Canes have 34 ROWs to our 30. You are correct: re: http://sp...

Could the Canucks learn from the Superbowl Champs Seahawks?!

Well, some of you members here, like my cyber bro dave and moderator rats19 are aware that I previously posted on hfboards. A few months ago on that site, back in February 11th, 2014, I wrote a extended post there speculating if the Canucks could learn from the recent Superbowl Championship, Seattle...

Re: OOTS: 2013-14

The Hurricanes with a 3-1 lead over the Flyers in the 1st.

A Canes win, ICYMI, assures the Canucks a 6th place in the draft order and a 6.2% chance to win the draft lottery and move up to no. 1.

Re: Linden named President of Hockey Ops

Look what the cat dragged in.. :lol: You can thank (or blame) the Linden hire, cyber bro dave ... 8-) To be honest, I would have really liked to see your reaction to the Mike Gillis goatee fiasco. Do you believe a fabled organization like the New York Yankees would continue to employ an executive w...

Re: Linden named President of Hockey Ops

Trevor talked about a team of three. A GM and two assistants. I can't really see someone with a current team making a lateral move. Gilman is perfect in the role he has now. Good with the cap, good with contracts and good with other GM's. Henning is well suited to where he is. I don't preclude the ...

Re: Linden named President of Hockey Ops

Catch the Q & A with Trevor over at CDC. Barry MacDonald has him on the Q&A for about 38 minutes. No real revelations, mostly fluff to address the fan base. But boy, it really is refreshing to hear him talk and not be listening to an arrogant, bombastic personality. It does seem obvious that his ca...

Re: Canucks select Bo Horvat with the #9 pick

I think it would have to start with Horvat pluse Tanev/Stanton/Corrado. From there a draft pick. You maybe sweeten it with JS and or Hansen. Trevor would know a lot about Kane and his personality. Of your list, maybe Horvat and Tanev could get them interested. I don't think Stanton and Corrado come...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

I want to be optimistic and hope the Canucks finish below the Hurricanes to secure that 6.2% chance and then pull off a shock win, and go on to draft no. 1 and pick one of the following: Bennett, Reinhart or Ekblad. The only have to pull the upset and get into the top three for that!! The rules for...

Re: Muzac For Munsters

I'm not the biggest CD fan. As Young Neil says, it's crap. Hell, even Steve Jobs hated the iPod and listened to vinyl (he said it was never meant as a music device just a listening one). You should look at lossless digital files like FLAC or ALAC if you're an Apple guy like me 24/192 vinyl rip is d...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

If we lose one of the last two we guarantee the 7th pick. Still a good chance for the 6th. Yeah, the difference between the 6th and 7th pick when it comes to Draft Lottery Odds to win and claim the No. 1 overall PICK is this: 6th - 6.2% 7th - 4.7% In a worst case scenario, where the Canucks win and...
