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

However, IF Hamonic is only a lateral move overall, then there is no point. What's interesting is that Tanev was better than Hamonic in 13-14 but Hamonic was significantly better than Tanev last year. Their point shares are almost identical this year though. Very difficult to give one or the other ...

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

Miller is an average goalie at best . It's a bad contract any way you slice it . If they re up him it's fucking retarded . You can't carry four or five shitty contracts in a cap world and expect to be competitive . We have a couple bad ones and a couple not so great ones. Cap management needs to im...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Who ever they pick I hope does not sign with them, it is a joke that the team can be that bad with all those picks.
Their, uhh, performance has not exactly been enviable Reef...

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

If kids improve and we get a top 3-5 pick this year as well as a top 10 next season , I can see the team being vastly improved for 2017-18. However if Ignitowski continues with more signings of the Sbisa and Miller ilk we will be fucked . You can only have one or two boat anchors in a cap world . I...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

In his defence, Vrbata has been a pretty consistent 20 goal+ player throughout his career.
Career 0.32 GPG isn't bad, is it?

There are a lot of middling seasons in there, but some great ones sprinkled in too. Anson Carter he is not, but Twins-inflated? Pretty hard to argue not.

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

If anyone is adding it should be the Islanders if they want Chris Tanev. I hear you. I actually don't know that Tanev for Hamonic is necessarily a good move... it's just why would they be interested in anything else on our roster? It's not like you're trading in a vacuum where they aren't shopping ...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Point is, we are seeing the real Vrbata now. The time to trade him was over the summer. My hope is he comes back from injury, WD is told to put him back with the twins, he goes on a tear, gets traded at the TDD. But no way he brings back a first. But that's ok. At this point it is all about getting...

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

And not surprising. A lot of dingbats don't realize how good s D-man Harmonic is. At his age and a very inoffensive contract, people need to stop proposing garbage packages for him. Think of who you don't want to trade to get the trade done. But like... Tanev + prospect/pick is the only possible wa...

Hamonic wants out to the west, and the isles need scoring and a PP guy on defence...
No chance in hell. Why do people think a Vrbata that isn't scoring has any value at all to other teams?

Re: Willy D death watch...

I don't believe there was ever any expectation this year (or next, frankly) for this team to succeed. It's a shitty squad on its way down to rebuild and the entire organization is on-board.

Re: Canucks News and Notes

I bet Benning would swap all his players for all of Winnipeg's players straight up. I'm guessing that's his kind of team and what he's looking to build here (notwithstanding his draft/trade for some smaller forwards, i.e. Baertschi, McCann). He would be pretty stupid not to trade for a better team?...

Re: Canucks Special Teams

To be fair to Edler, who does seem to be losing his way a bit - even if his possession stats from last year look pretty good - it's not that easy to QB a powerplay with the Twins and it never has been. Not knocking the Twins but they have always required other players to fit into their patterns. Tha...
