Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

I heard that on the draft weekend, Lou cut down the list of teams he's willing to go to and doesn't want to go to Toronto or Chicago anymore. He pretty much only wants to go to Florida. :( One of he big problems that Twitter has caused is this legitimizing of gossip! :scowl: Some "journalist" somew...

Re: Draft 2012

Just for the record, I think Gillis did extremely well at this draft, and I think that both Gaunce and Mallete will be strong players for us in the not-so-distant future. Gaunce seems like one of those 'character' guys with a decent skillset and hockey sense. I've heard that his skating isn't all t...

"Farhan Lalji wrote: The Oilers can easily trade 1-2 of their abundant promising talent up front for a blue chip goalie and/or defenseman to create a more well rounded core.

Re: Canucks 2012 Draft picks

Well, of course there is such a thing as window of opportunity. Just ask Chicago. So the point being that MG needs to make hockey deals, trades or signings, that make sense now and in the future. Teams that blow the wad on a win today mentality have a much shorter window and they may or may not be ...

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

Leafs deal Jonas Gustavsonn to the Jets for a '13 7th round pick. Wow, remember the hype surrounding this guy when he first arrived to TO? :roll: A seventh round pick?! :shock: Wow, that's harsh. "Monster" Gustavsson is by no means the second coming of Christ, but he's not that bad. I'd say he's a ...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

I can't see them entrusting their fate in the hands of young Holtby - no matter how hot he was for them in the playoffs. But you can see the Canucks putting their fate in a young Schneider, no matter how well he's played in his 3 career playoff games? Schneider actually posted better numbers in the...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

With Vokoun of the market, Lu’s trade value continues to go up. All the Leaf fans who were suggesting that a Lu for Komisarek deal would be fair and if the Canucks didn’t take it they would just sign Vokoun are crying in their Lucky Charms this morning. Such a great way to start the week! Smart mov...

Re: Justin Schultz ...who the heck...????

It comes down to whether Vigneault will let him play . The only reason Schultz would sign with anyone is if he gets a spot on the team that's his to lose. Gillis just has to convince Vigneault to accept some risk out there when it comes to putting Schultz out there and live with mistakes. Schultz w...

Re: Prospects Thread 2011-12

Much appreciated, SC! I do have some concern about a particular gap in our prospect pool. Where are the Dwight King types? :look: He's listed at 6'3" an 234, and has been a beast on the forecheck! Along with young Nolan (also big and hard-hitting). The hard forechecking style of play certainly seems...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Let's not forget that we probably lose the SCF to Boston in 5 games had Luongo not stood on his head for 2 shutouts... Agreed with everything you said except for the above: Canucks dominated the Bruins in Game 1 and outside of a brilliant performance by Thomas, we could have won that game by 3-4 go...

Re: CANUCKS 2012 DRAFT POSITION

Well, no, I'm sure the Canadiens don't have a monopoly of scouting the Q! But, for ages, the Q (and the OHL) have been in the "backyards" of many teams located in that region, both Canadian and American. By the same token, I doubt all those Eastern teams had a lot of scouts devoted to the WHL! So, i...

Re: CANUCKS 2012 DRAFT POSITION

Draft time is always a fascinating time. We live in hope that the Canucks will find those hidden gems. But what is depressing about this time is realizing how poorly the Canucks have drafted from the WHL! In their own backyard, and they miss out on guys like Weber and Jamie Benn. :shock: How is it p...

Re: OK, So What I have heard this May 2012

Pahlsson: Are very high on him and would like him back as their third line centre, which could mean another nail for Manny. So, does this mean that the team is looking for the 3rd line to be the shut-down line? To take the pressure and hard minutes away from Kesler? You could certainly make the cas...

Re: Off-Season Trade Thread - Needs/Wants

So, given what HW has posted on a new thread - it looks like TO is a top possibility for Luongo. The question is : who do we want vs who can we get? :hmmm: I imagine GMMG asks for TO's 1st as well as Gardiner. I can't see Burke parting with another 1st, no matter what! And, of course he wants to kee...

Re: OOTS 11/12 playoff edition

And the Flyers prove once again that without defence and goaltending you don't win cups. A true number one and a healthy Pronger sure would have made a difference. I never expect the Devils to get this far but they are playing good hockey. I'd love to see MArty hoist one more cup. Such a great care...
