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

Do you though? Are you sure? Maybe you can explain to me a number of deadline deals over the last few years. The insane deals for Sekera, Erat and so on. There have been tons of insane deals made by teams at deadline time. So, why don't you shed some light on those deals as well...cuz you sure like...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

I call bollocks on the goalie controversy. Miller has played 16 of 18 games so far. At that pace, he'd play 73 games this year, and Markstrom only 8. That's not good for either of them. Markstrom should be getting every 3rd or 4th start, not every 8th or 9th that the backup has gotten so far. Yeah,...

Matt Duchene for a package based around Edler?

Top D prospects for Hamhuis and Vrbata...

Re: Canucks Special Teams

Because most NHL d-men don't ignore players in the high-slot like the Blues were there? Vey is pretty shitty man... Actually, Vey scored several PP goals on several teams from that exact spot. link to video . He spent 2 months on the PP, and finished the year one goal short of a 5-way tie for 2nd m...

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

Edler and Tanev especially would return a tremendous haul. Both are top pairing guys and Tanev is a top 20 d man in the league. Maybe depends on what you consider tremendous? Neither gets a first or a top prospect in my mind. I like Tanev but I did a quick mental list and didn't have either of our ...

Re: Canucks Special Teams

The Canucks had their most success on the PP when the twins were with Kesler up front and Edler and Salo were on the point. The best we can do now, years later is put Weber and Vrbata in place of Kesler and Salo??? On repeat ... over and over again. This has been the undoing of the powerplay as we ...

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

Yeah, I hate to break it to you but you aren't the measuring stick on who gets what in NHL trades. Sorry. You're not. I'd rather take the opinion of guys like Botchford who feel Hamhuis and Vrbata could've gotten first round picks in last year's draft. So, yeah, I think your credibility is about ze...

Re: Canucks Special Teams

Topper :lol: . Very good sir. Our only skilled players are old and a step slower or young and a little too green. There's no jockeying fix here... this is just not a very talented club. The twins will pot some PP points against bad teams over the course of the season and good ones too, if they get e...

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

I think you're the one forgetting that trade value of players is also very situational. Is Hamhuis worth a first round pick to Columbus or Toronto? No, not even close. Is Hamhuis worth a first round pick to Washington or New York? Depends. If a team that is considered a contender has some injury is...

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

?? Should perhaps amend to say that the only players people want are the young guys you're building up and the core pieces that mean throwing in the towel (Dan/Henrik/Miller) that you can't move anyway. Fans pretending that we can fix our holes by throwing our castoffs on someone else are being sil...

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

Higgins has zero trade value guys...

Actually let me amend that... no one on the team has any trade value other than Edler and you're looking at offseason mid-round picks for him.

Re: Canucks land Brendan Sutter and 3rd round pick

Seems like a pretty fair swap. Sutter is probably a Clandenning and a round of draft picks better than Bonino. Meh. Shuffle that deck I guess.
