I honestly can't watch the guy anymore. Haven't for years as he's a fucking embarrassment and should have retired years ago.

No, Reservoir Dogs with Mr Blonde torturing the cop. Mickey, I'm old enough to remember the song before Tarantino's movie and Rafferty's solo career. Rafferty also drank himself to death, must have been a Canucks fan.

Twice in one week I've agreed with your posts, Blob. Something in the Air (Phil Collins).

Unlikely. RD and Blob are on again. They should be married.

I'm very happy with all of the signings - good cap hits, good terms, no trade protection.

Everyone I'm sure would like a mulligan on the Eriksson signing, but as Doc says he will be better next year, its a question of how much.

Sutter's contract continues to look like fair market value, as the NHL recognizes that the price of a UFA, good 3rd line center is $4-5 mil.

What I'm most excited about is the number of waivers-exempt players next year. They have farm depth at every position, all with significant upside (unlike the Megnas/Chaputs of the world):

FW
Boeser
Molino
Goldobin
Virtanen
Dahlen

G:
Demko

D:
Holm
Pedan
Subban
Brisebois

One thing about the signing spree is that it shows that vancouver hasn't yet become the franchise no UFAs want anything to do with.

Very true - that was my own view of the Canuck Luck with UFAs.

July 1 definitely went against the grain, with 3 middle-of-the-pack UFAs getting signed without over-spending or giving in on term and trade protection.
