Re: Trades made - Trade Deadline Day 2018

If I recall when I did the numbers, a 3rd or 4th round pick has a 7% chance of playing a significant number of NHL games. But hey, Ottawa got a 7th for Nick Shore - WIN! I don't think trading Vanek for scrubs who can barely keep up at the NHL level is better than a 7% chance at a draft pick who mig...

Jim Benning's Swiss cousin perhaps?

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

I don't mind Pratt these days, used to hate him but he's toned it down since his return. 1040 needs to do something about the afternoon show and All Things 1970's - Don Taylor Agree 100%. A few years ago Pratt was absolutely insufferable and got himself fired for his tired bike lane rants. Since he...

Re: 2017/18 Canucks head coach search

I don't like the hire but I'm not that bothered by it. I think he needs more time to cook at the NHL level as an assistant. Nothing he's done has shown that he'll be up to the level of the NHL's best, just the one AHL's best. I did a little bit of analysis based on a record of NHL coaches going back...

Re: 2017/18 Canucks head coach search

I'm not keen on Green with so little NHL experience. Surely coaching in the AHL is similar in nature to players playing in the AHL? Each night he's been honing his skills against AHL calibre coaches. They might be good but he's not been up against the world-class coaches of the NHL. Sure some of the...

Aboot time. Earlier in the year they said he wasn't the problem, but clearly he wasn't the solution either.

Re: GDT: March 2, A New Beginning Canucks @ Sharks 7:30

If the sharks win, that's one step closer to home ice advantage which will help them towards winning the cup and getting us a 1st round pick...

Go sharks?

Nope.. Let's smash them and then lose everything from here out.

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

RD who freaking cares who the best is in Utica. You need to look at who is expected to be an NHL player and bring them up. I'm not saying you bring up a crappy player.
