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

Speaking of Karlsson. I’d trade the first for William. Vegas does need to shed salary. F**k patients, Blobs goin for the cup. :shock: ' https://www.nationalobserver.com/sites/nationalobserver.com/files/styles/nat_header_full_size/public/img/2017/06/26/screen_shot_2017-06-26_at_8.28.29_pm.png?itok=r...

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

We would need to know that before making the deal Sometimes you just have to go for gold, like the Sharks traded scraps for EK , showed him the good life in SJ, then re-signed him. I BET the same could be said for Vancouver, show Trouba the good life here, he and Hughes get us into the playoffs, = ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Chicago just got Olli Maatta from Pittsburgh for Dominik Kahun and a 2019 5th round pick. That doesn't seem like much for the Pens. They give up a 24-year-old, former 1st rounder for an undrafted, 24-year-old German and a pick. Kahun did get 13 goals and 24 assists in 82 games. I haven't watched Ma...

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

@DhaliwalSports Source : The #Canucks are very active on the trade market. Feeling is Jim Benning has made some offers to improve that blueline. Wouldn't surprise me if they are 1 of the teams that have checked in on Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere. 7:18 AM - 14 Jun 2019 That would be 4.5 per...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Tuna is just overcompensating for the dismal leaves. Let him have his day. The truth still hurts and this is helping him stay alive. Every time the pain of being a leaves fan rears he can always fall back on, ya but the Raptors won. In his mind it will erase the pain of being a leaves fan for a few...

He never lived up to his early expectations and has always heard footsteps when his back is turned, but he is still the best defender Vancouver has.
Yep.

Women find the uncut ugly. Just saying. It also tastes different, from what I hear.

Re: Canucks Contracts

Boeser is 23 and projected by many to be a 70-80 point winger who should approach 40 goals on a regular basis over 82 games. Skinner is 27 and has only hit that mark once, came close one other time, and he has maxed out twice at 63 points. Up until the rumor about him getting a possible offer from ...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Had a bit of fun arm-chair GM'ing on capfriendly today with some downtime at work.... Started by trading Sutter, Gaunce, and 4th to Ottawa for Borowiecki and a 7th. From the Canucks perspective it's a cap dump. Then I re-signed Edler, Hutton, Schenn, and Boeser, and grabbed Skinner from UFA. Virtan...

Re: Canucks Contracts

I was very pleased with how he finished the season. I also don’t think we’ve seen the best of him. I also want a fair contract for him and hope Benning doesn’t let it get contentious. But Benning has no rush. If it takes all summer so be it. I think he gets 7-8 years but only if Benning is willing ...

Re: Canucks Contracts

I'm just a messenger reporting what's out there, OK? Irfaan Gaffar ‏Verified account @sportsnetirf #Canucks and Boeser camp expected to meet again soon. Told the two sides are not close at all. 10:20 AM - 30 May 2019 I’d be curious to know the numbers, but I think they need to take a harder line wi...

Well folks looks like we in the game for EK! ICYMI Elliotte Friedman, says 4 teams, including San Jose , that are the front-runners in signing Erik Karlsson this off-season. Vancouver Canucks, Tampa Bay Lightning, San Jose Sharks and the New York Rangers are all the front-runners in trying to sign ...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Since he loves it here, we should be able to talk 33-yr-old Edler into a two year contract Agreed. Two-years, $12M, full NMC, call it done. I don't see other teams giving him that third year with trade protection, and there's not many teams as desperate on D as Vancouver... I can easily see a team ...
