Lol there is no need for anyone to be told to tank it Todd. This team is a lock for another bottom five finish next season.

Given that Luc’s two common D partners in Junior were Kris Leteng and Keith Yandle, it’s a safe bet Ol Luc woulda had a solid if unspectacular career as well.

That would work. *hehe* They were showing signs of turning it around though (ie: beginning of the season b4 injuries). If most of our young guys simply get a little better next year, the team will take another step forward.

Hopefully Benning does better than the last time the draft was in Vancouver, where Grabner was selected at #14.
Actually, Machine Gun Grabner carved out a nice career for himself. He would have been easily our best sniper if he was still a Canuck the past couple years, just Brockstar emerged this season. Grabner got a nice return @ TDD as well. :D
From 2003-2013, Grabner was undoubtedly the best Canucks first-round pick, best drafted forward, and a toss-up with Edler for best pick period.

:drink:
Which makes the Ballard trade super amazing for us. With Kuznetsov sitting right there we trade our 1st, Grabner and Bernie for Balltard. Just awful

Some people can't handle a rebuild. Blob! There's a forest through them trees! But all you see is the nearest tree in front of you to piss your booze on

I’m all good buds. The new GM will have some decent prospects to work with in two years

The year 2035 maybe JB will move on.

Consensus does not appear to be good.

@Canucks
Baertschi has a separated shoulder and is most likely done for the year, confirms Coach Green.

Canucks reign supreme in man-games lost once again, for the 3-peat it feels like...a gift and a curse, helps for the lotto & hope team stays healthier if/when the team gets it's much desired top tier dman.
