From the reports I've read Grabner seems to have been a real disappointment so far.

The more I look at them the more I don't mind them. Still not 100% on the wordmark, but it kind of grows on you. I Like the colors better than the previous ones, and am a fan of the classic concept compared to some of the ugly modernistic stuff being sported around the league. A solid C grade from m...

overall I like the new unis but i do think the "Vancouver" lettering is oout of place. makes them look too busy. Now that the fulltime unis have taken the color scheme from the sticknrink are they going to use the yellow skate logo unis as the third jersey?

Not a bad move imo. 3 cheap backup goalies. Let them compete for the top spot and see if anybody steps up. Phoenix needs to spend just to reach the cap floor so I could even see them making a move for Raycroft, Gerber, etc. once those teams need to shave some salary and are desperate enough to give ...

I'm all for it. Cap room shouldn't be a giant issue as he probably wouldn't even join the team until the stretch. Nice additon for the POs. Aside from his talent it would be a good morale boost for the team and probably rejuvinate Naslund and all the other swedes on the team. I don't think Forsberg ...

exact same thing happened to my cousin who plays in the states. They let him in, but they impounded his american plated car until he could provide proper paperwork. I think the Nolan family just have big chips on their shoulders. Sure its bullshit bureacracy but everything seems to be racism with th...

I too have to concur with Fred. If our pro scouts were stockpickers then our portfolio has underperformed the market since DN took over. Luongo and Mitchell were both important additions to the team but any idiot could have told you that beforehand. Factoring in their salaries, neither player has re...

Seems like a pretty good deal for us, albeit very minor. Guentte is worthless, whereas Fitzgerald still has a chance to become an AHLer. he is supposed to be a pretty good fighter, and as a former highly rated prospect who has been hampered by injuries he is still young enough to develop into a dece...

I'm all for trading Cooke. He is probably one of our most marketable trade chips. He is a good third liner but imo that is all he will ever be. We have quite abit of depth on the bottom six so I think Cooke could be replaced by committee without that significant of a downgrade, and if he can be pack...

Given Nonis' track record of being conservative I think you are probably right that we will start the year with the players we currently have. As much as I would like the excitement of some big moves, prudence would seem to dictate that keeping some space open for midseason retooling is the way to g...

Ryder

It has been mentioned before but I think this guys game would be a very good match with the Sedins. As a RFA on a montreal team loaded with forwards I think DN should really look into gettin this guy, either through an offer sheet or a sign and trade. We have some depth in the defense area that Mont...

Good to see imo. you can't teach character. Helps to instill a certain organizational culture that is the hallmark of all successful enterprises.

Desperate move by Lowe but I guess he is under pressure to show the fans/owners that he is doing all that he can to right the ship. 4 1st rounders on top of a 7 mill salary is pretty steep for Vanek. Personally I would can lowe before he completely mortgages the teams future to try and save his job.

i don't mind either of these deals. As has been mentioned, the financial terms limit any real downside risk for either of these guys. Ritchie is a what you see is what you get type of guy who may make Cooke redundant and isbister is a chronic underacheiver, but after a season in the A and under a gu...
