Re: Canucks News and Notes

the only way they could play a non Pacific division team in the first 2 rounds is by winning the division (unlikely), by being a wild card team or if the wild card team (could still possibly be a Pacific division team) beats the division winner in round 1.

Re: Canucks News and Notes

so if the Canucks finish 2nd/3rd in the pacific they face the other 2nd /3rd place team in the pacific. Right now they are 2nd and would face 3rd place LA.

Re: Canucks News and Notes

In the First Round, the division winner with the best record in each conference will be matched against the wild-card team with the lesser record; the wild card team with the better record will play the other division winner. The teams finishing second and third in each division will meet in the Fir...

Might be true but Benning didnt give a timeline this morning when he with the media and he hasnt had his MRI yet. 6 weeks from today the canucks will have 3 games left before (hopefully) the playoffs start.

Elliote Freedman tweeted this morning that the 30 days didnt apply and that waivers would only be needed if he played more than 10 games.

FWIW.

Canucks arent trading for Lupul. Toronto wants picks and prospects and we arent going to give them up for a 30 year old under contract for 3 more years.

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Dont put too much stock in AHL numbers. Kenins has 12 points in 36 AHL games (.33 ppg) and 7 pts in 11 NHL games (.63ppg). Of course he wont be able to sustain it but they put the right guy in the right spot and it has worked out. Then didnt try and put Jensen on the 4th line. They put a guy in a po...

Re: Steve Montador dead at age 35

Interesting that they had a moment of silence last night before the game for him. Also Mirtle has back tracked from his suicide comments. He deleted the tweets and apologized. http://awfulannouncing.com/2015/nhl-reporter-retracts-steve-montador-suicide-report.html Awful announcing is a really good f...

Re: Trade Deadline 2015 - Canucks

I think we see 2 forwards traded for pics/prospects. And maybe Lack/Markstrom. I still think if you want to speed up this rebuild you need to move Edler but I cant see it happening at the deadline. Maybe at the draft.

Be nice to see what Sbisa could bring in at the deadline though for die hard contending teams wanting depth.
Maybe a 4th rounder ?

Re: Trade Deadline 2015 - Canucks

What is Edler's demand to not go anywhere going to do? Anyway, your list of NHL defensemen that we are just up to our eyeballs in contains four guys who should get somewhere in the 20 minutes a game area, two of them are well into their 30s and UFAs next year. Trade Edler and wait a year and you mi...

Re: Trade Deadline 2015 - Canucks

I have nothing against Edler at all. In fact I agree he is our best defenceman. However our depth in Vancouver is on defence. We have Clendening, Bieksa, Hamhuis, Tanev, Corrado, Sbisa, Weber and Stanton. Our organization desperately needs top 6 forwards. We have a few players coming that may or may...

Re: Trade Deadline 2015 - Canucks

The problem with trading Kassian is at the deadline teams are either looking to build for the playoffs or build for the future. If we are building for the future then we will likely be trading with teams looking to add. Not sure a team looking to build for a playoff run is going to look at Kassian a...
