If you insist. :D

April 12, 2012, Canucks down 1-0 in their playoff series versus the Kings:

They do look long term and do understand what it takes to be successful in the NHL both on and off the ice. I have felt that in last few years ownership/management has significantly improved and even though this was only 1 meeting they did nothing to dispel that notion.


SIX DAYS LATER

April 18, 2012, Canucks down 3-1 in the series, facing elimination:

So in 6 short days you go from “MG knows exactly what’s going on, is extremely competent!” to

….. “MG needs a major wakeup call because he is blind!”

:mex:


I am trying to stay positive because I was told I was too negative, so I kept hoping that I would be wrong.

Months ago?

Most of us at this site were calling for at least 2 of the core to be traded last summer!

Wot da fock dude.

Reefer2 wrote:Said Edler was done and never a true #1, said that a couple years ago.


Well I don't recall anyone ever saying he was a #1 so....

"DONE"?

I don't THINK so.

He's still a Top Four, albeit most members of this site were calling for him to be shipped out last summer.

Didn't everyone have these kinds of criticisms all along?

NOW I get why you chose "Reefer" for a handle! :mrgreen:

How would you fellers feel about your Canucks trading their 2015 first-rounder?

See, other teams might see it as an opportunity for McDavid

... while we all know that last season's fiasco was a one off... a fluke.

See, other teams might think about Burkie's big mistake from a a few years back

... but we all know that Canucks will return to the top of the standings!

We could package it with this year's 6th overall and get us a SUPERSTAR!

SUPERSTAR + Sedins/Burrows bounceback + Kassian jump + Horvat + Gaunce + Vanek + return on Edler

= back to the penthouse baby!

Yes, I'm drunk but this TOTALLY makes sense...

What are you drinking because I want some.

For the whiskey drinkers if you ever get to Japan try this http://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/suntory-hibiki-17-year-old-whisky/. Just found out that soon it will be available in the good ole USA so hopefully soon in Canada. Off to a whiskey tasting night in Burnaby in a week.

SL - are you saying that a team or 2 might move some talent to make their team worse so they can be in the hunt for #1?

Need to be on the lookout for teams "Cutting Salary" this offseason which is code talk for tank for McDavid.

I bet the Carolina Hurricanes do this as they have fans that don't really give a shit about how their team plays.
Maybe even the Flamers.

So time to pillage the Canes, mainly the Staal bros, Skinner, Ward.

The Flames don't need to "cut salary" in order to tank. They suck as it is.

I think our maybe-1st-overall 2015 draft pick will make an excellent centerpiece..



For the $10m/year three year offer sheet we'll be signing PK Subban to this summer.

The team to target is Buffalo and Tyler Myers specifically. I would say trade the 6th overall pick for him. They need to finish with the worst record to essentially guarantee themselves a projected future "superstore" in either Eichel or McDavid. That's the Chicago/Pittsburg Model of rebuilding a franchise.

Then the Canucks could flip Edler to a contender for a good younger player/picks. Maybe to the Pens/Bruins/Flyers etc..

Botchford: Ryan Kesler may not want to be a Penguin now
Pens’ post-season collapse may take them out of the running for Canucks centre’s services
BY JASON BOTCHFORD, THE PROVINCE MAY 14, 2014

From the article:

Kesler has already given the Canucks six teams he’d be willing to waive his no-trade clause for: Anaheim, Colorado, Detroit, Tampa Bay, Chicago and Pittsburgh.


Okay, now try to put together a wish list of prospect/picks you want from each respective team. I'm a bit surprised the Flyers aren't on his list. But since they made the Playoffs, I guess they could be a 7th team. At the TDL, they were touch and go to make it but now that they will likely be Playoffs contenders, I think he would put them on a list.

Of the teams ... I'd future trading them to the East i.e. Det, T-Bay, Pit and Phi would be the preferred places over Ana or Chi all things being equal. Having said that, you still want the Kings to beat the Ducks in Game 7 with the Kings Centres' being the difference maker for at least the Ducks to put in a competitive bid for Kesler's services.

Then if it is on the internet it must be correct right?
