Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

Interesting point, is Kopitar a better better than Henrik? If Kopitar goes back to 50ish points for the rest of his contract, he will be a boat-anchor. But if he gets a couple more seasons of his career average 70-75 points, they may continue to have a shot at the postseason. I guess that's the big...

Re: What to do with Hughes

Yeah the ELC isn't as big of a deal as the countdown to unrestricted free agency. IIRC, that happens at the 40 game mark. I know that that's the accepted wisdom, but I don't agree. That extra year of an ELC will save $3-5 million in cap space. For the hand-wringing in this market over Beagle and Ro...

Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

For the record I would have torn that thing apart in LA starting this summer. I don’t think they are set up well long term but I think they could have a couple good seasons left. Who knows maybe Vilardi becomes a stud and they unearth another Muzzin type and keep rolling like the Sharks. I think wh...

Re: What to do with Hughes

Kidding aside it is a good plan but I would see about him signing as soon as his season ends. Screw his ELC. Getting him into the NHL for 10 or so games would be good for him, and good for the rebuild optics. Yeah the ELC isn't as big of a deal as the countdown to unrestricted free agency. IIRC, th...

Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

The Kings are the 2014/15 Canucks. They had everything break right for them last season, and still got swept. They have won ONE playoff game in the past 4 years. Kopitar shot 17.5 percent last year, as a career average 12.5% shooter. Brown shot 12.5%, as a career average 9.5% (and dropping for 5 ye...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Like I said in my origînal post, Benning seems to be learning to negotiate a bit. Well I should hope so, he held all the cards in this negotiation. I'm curious what Stecher's camp would have asked for in arbitration. Maybe he points to Hutton's deal and the Canucks probably look to Pouliot? Stetche...

As an asside where will Vancouver finish in the Pacific next season?
Canucks are in the basement again. And that's fine. Play the kids, collect the picks. Hopefully some excitement at the entry draft.

Re: Canucks Contracts

Canucks resign Troy Stetcher to a two year contract worth 2.325 million per year. https://twitter.com/Canucks/status/1020367495637524480 What a fantastic deal! Not sure if serious ? :scowl: No, I don't think it's a great deal, but I'm trying to look on the bright side! :drink: Topper will love it.

Re: Canucks Contracts

No reason for the Canucks to rush an extension on Boeser. His value probably can't get much higher. A 40+ season gets him $8M per, injuries and a sophomore slump and we can probably bridge him for 7M

Re: If you could move just one

I’d like to see Green move. Bring back Vigneault. He had the team playing a high tempo offensive game. Green just can’t seem to get the team to attack. Also it’s time to bring in somebody to take care of the youngsters. Both EP and Hughes are small and will be mashed everyone. Protect your assets. ...
