Yeah the blackhawks gone off the cliff after toews and kane got their "max" contracts along with Seabrook, holds true with the Kings as well overpaying the wrong folks and giving term to the likes of Brown etc.
Victims of their own success. The Canucks should be so lucky.

Eli! What a shot!
Yep. He must give PK coaches fits. Basically need to treat him like an Ovechkin for his shot, but the way he distributes you'll want to stick a man on him, leaving the 4-on-3 the rest of the way.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

But at this stage in the rebuild, I question the wisdom of letting Hughes burn a year of his elc after the college season ends. Staggering contracts will become very important in the next few years. I doubt Hughes gets a sniff this year. If he does, we have to protect him in the expansion draft. It...

Today's trade: Canucks give up a backup goaltender and a career AHL plug

The get a wee bit of cap space, a roster spot for Demko and a 6th.

Both McKenna and Pyatt are cheap, AHL bound and and off the books at season's end.
Yep. I’m impressed he was able to find a taker for Nilsson

He turns 30 this July. He makes $9.5 million until the end of season 2014-25. Ouch. A big ouch in a couple years
He’s easily worth $3.5 more than Loui Erikson.

Re: Trade Deadline, Feb.25, 2019 ?

Given where we are in the standings, Benning could be forgiven for holding pat. I’d personally like to see Edler moved for futures, but given the trade protection that would be a tough sell with a disappointing return. It would have significant impact in the room, so if we’re still sitting in that 9...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I like Benn too but Vancouver doesn’t have the assets to trade for him. They’d want Horvat or Boeser to start And that ain’t happening If only you could talk them into a similar quantity for quality deal to what they did for Séguin... something like Gudbranson+Virtanen+Demko and a pick. I still hav...

Did you party with him on the island once upon a time? :)
We are both Peninsula Eagles alumni and know some of the same people. Other than that, no comment.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I’d trade for Benn in a heartbeat. Kid does it all. Seguin, meh... he’s so full of himself I don’t know how anyone puts up with him. Calling up the reporters and making this on the record is a Melnyk-worthy stunt that does nothing to improve the franchise’s reputation and is unlikely to have any imp...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

So if quinn hughes signs and plays out the season and they make the dance....does that mean hes ineligible for the playoffs? Yup. Are you sure? I think this rule only applies to traded players. You can still make a trade after the deadline, but the player you acquire cannot play in the playoffs. De...
