Re: Off-Season Trade Thread - Needs/Wants

So, it definitely seems that the well has almost run dry for our C depth :( Like many here, I assume that Luongo will be traded to either Toronto or TB. Looking over their rosters, I don't see lots of choices. The only ones that are at all promising are Kadri from TO or Connelly from TB. Both center...

Re: Off-Season Trade Thread - Needs/Wants

Agree, dbr. The problem is that those guys are not so easily found! Now, with Kes' injury/surgery situation, the need to find another option at C for the 2nd or 3rd lines is paramount! Even if we factor in a good return for Luongo, just who fits that bill on the rosters of either TB or Toronto? Mayb...

Re: Mike Gillis agrees to contract extension with Canucks

I wonder how the managing partner evaluates the GM: 1. Let's see, the club is making a 100 million dollar a year profit. Where did I put that contract extension? or 2. Let's see.....wait...I don't see it....the frickin Stanley Cup!! I'm going to extend your contract this time, and give you anything...

Re: Was Aquilini Talking to Gretzky About Lombardi?

Thanks, HW. The idea that GMMG runs his ship with a team-management approach certainly fits into how he has always presented himself and the team management. He is not Burke - that's for sure! I think he instigated this management team approach right from his beginning, partially, at least, because ...

Re: Off-Season Trade Thread - Needs/Wants

Fair enough, Nucklehead, I don't disagree with your take on AV's overall playoff success. But according to HW, this year, it seems that important decisions about the playing roster, etc were being made by management or owners. And I don't think it was just laziness that hit the team in the past two ...

Re: Off-Season Trade Thread - Needs/Wants

Groan! Just what we need...owners micro-managing! :wow: Having that much interference during the playoffs would really be shi**y! If they get rid of AV, just who will replace him? The Province thinks McClellan (San Jose) could be available. I don't know...I haven't been overly impressed with him. H...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

I like Nash but I doubt hes coming for Luongo. Why the hell would RL waive his NTC to go to Columbus? Ian Clarke? Serious? Toronto, Washington, Tampa Bay and a long shot Florida. I just cant see any other teams fitting in a trade involving him. Why on earth would he go to Toronto? Because Dregger s...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Changing direction slightly, I find it confusing why some people feel Nash will get a king's ransom and Luongo only scraps and a bad contract back??? EXACTLY. And as I said earlier, pretty much all of the "pundits" were saying the Jackets would get scraps for Jeff Carter. Luongo earns his money and...

Re: OOTS 11/12 playoff edition

You've gotta give Sutter the credit for this huge turn-around. It seems like the team is playing up and beyond their collective ceilings! I am stunned that Sutter has gotten Penner to play at this level again! Wow! Of course, it might be a different story if Sutter was around for another couple of s...

Re: Gillis a Moron for his Comments on Hodgson?

Actually, the only interesting item in the article was Roberts' assertion that it was his guys who came up with the correct diagnosis for Coho's injury! GMMG has maintained that it was the Canucks' doctors who finally arrived at the torn muscle diagnosis! (he was referring to how even the Mayo clini...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Diito, RD...though I'm not sold on how much difference Cody would have made (I can't see him winning too many puck battles with those LA forwards!). And I think Grabner would have run to avoid Dustin Brown's hits! So, how do we go about acquiring one one two real 2nd liners and a 3rd line C? Not to ...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Farhan, Nash ain't bringing us to Lord Stanley. And I disagree about our D core, we have decent No. 2 defenseman but lack a serious top quality D-man. Not saying Erhoff was a serious Norris contender but his departure has a bit to do with our inability to score. When he was here, our D was a massiv...

Re: 2012 UFAs

I realize that we are all suffering from post-playoff depression still, but to have people seriously suggest that we trade Edler is just mind-boggling! :shock: He just turned 26, he scored 49 points...in his "off" year. He plays in all situations; he is a key on the PP, and someone wants him gone. ...
