Re: What to do with Hughes

Rick Dhaliwal: Boeser on Hughes big decision - college or pro, "I know my 2nd year really helped me a lot, off ice I really think I got a lot stronger." Boeser has spoken, saying another year in college helped a lot, that could sway Mr Hughes to go back one more season & then probably sign near the...

Re: Canucks Contracts

^ A career-ending injury would mean ZERO dollars. Something we know he thought about long and hard after last year's injury. "$6.5-$6.9M per x 8 years" would be at the lowest possible end of the scale. The expectation in this day and age is more is more like $8M X 8. Nyet. Perhaps you should check ...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Boeser said he's not worried about signing a new contract right now, saying he has one more year left on his current one, just concentrating on the upcoming season. HOWEVER IF Boeser gets injured again, he goes from possible $6.5-$6.9M per x 8 years with signing bonuses to last through the possible ...

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

The good thing about having owners with deep pockets is they'd approve of trading for Erik Karlsson and hell even Ryan, just so the price would go down asset wise from the Canucks end. The aquabros love exciting hockey. & how the Redwings had the Russian 5, we'd have the Swede5. Dahlen-Pettersson-Er...

BTW my longtime buddy Diehard already admitted he was trolling when he called you "the voice of reason"! I wasn't kidding when I said this board needs Blob's (and Don's, and IN's, and other non-cultists') perspective to maintain some sort of balance, i.e. avoid becoming the mirror-universe version ...

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

Apparently the Blackhawks were after Gagner when he was a UFA & were kicking tires on his trade availability. Hopefully his contract with us doesn’t take him off the Hawks radar. If I remember, Hawkes offered him a two year and Benning added that third year to laid him so maybe it’s just what Chica...

Rick Dhaliwal: Goldobin says he talks to Nikita Tryamkin, “I try to get him back to NHL but I don’t think it’s happening for a year or two.” #Canucks Could be as early as next season when Tryamkin makes his return, anyways all the more reason to keep Goldy around aha, even if we have to wait two mo...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Well under Desjardins he was more engaged but with Green and Brown they turned him more into a depth guy, and Brown gave him the least amount of powerplay time in many years. Total time on ice for powerplay Loui was behind the sedins, vanek, boeser, horvat, gagner, baertschi. Total POWERPLAY minutes...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

One thing we all overlook is that with the Sedins and Vanek gone, Eriksson can go back to his "office" around the net and get his powerplay time back, back to where he can get 25-30 goals he's proven he can do when given the proper coaching *cough* Newell Brown. And if Loui can score 25+ goals per y...

Yeah Gagner would pretty easy to deal, has a reliable 40pt per season resume, only two years left on deal, right shot center/winger.

So you're convinced they will use Pettersson as a center?
They will, maybe not right off the bat but by mid-season he should be being groomed for the center role, it's a key position for the Canucks long term success plan.

Re: How to trade Loui Eriksson

During the 2016 UFA season lets look at who might have been in on Loui Eriksson. Jimmy Murphy: Hearing #Panthers NOT in on Loui Eriksson sweepstakes. #NHLFreeagency I'd keep eye on #Wings #Habs #Blues #Sharks and #Devils Kosta Papoulias: 30 Jun 2016: #Habs busy trying to acquire either Loui Eriksson...
