Skyo, there is a logjam of fluff in front of Dahlen right now.

Baertshci Broseph Brock
Lipstick Samwise Louis
Granlund Sutter Goldobin
Gaunce Petterson Virtanen
Motte Gaudette

And then a pisspot full of cash for Elmer to spend on July 1

The moment Dahlen shows he can bring his game to the NHL, any/all of that "fluff" is easily tossed aside...

Weird not seeing Sedin-Sedin-[Plug] on our depth chart.

Hopefully Peterson comes as advertised, because I don’t think Brock has 100 goals in him. Where’s the offence come from?

I bet cap space will burn a hole in Jimmy’s jean shorts. I can see him throwing $7.5 at JVR.

I guess Carlson will be entertaining his options. Not that we have a chance but wouldnt it be nice to add him to anchor our D...with all that cap space anything is a possibility
Holy crap; I just read that. A lot different then yesterday.
I know :idea: Throw Carlson an offer he can't refuse comma then comma
Trade our number one draft pick comma that we just picked, for an astonishingly talented center that has size, can score, can pass, can hit, loves to fight, is a great leader and adores the city.
Piece of cake; :mrgreen:

Is this ultra-bitter version of you going to wear off, Mick, or do we need to consider trading you for a new prospect?

Bitter? Me? Never, I'm cool.
I just don't jump on band wagons just because our organization did something.
But I'll work with it from this point on, I promise...

Tavares out sounding like from Canucks land JB saying we are rebuilding doesn't make sense to spend big bucks on JT, Carlson out.

Dhaliwal with the info.
Benning said he did not have talks with the John Tavares camp, "Where we are at in rebuilding, I don't know if it makes sense to have a player who makes that much money. We didn't really pursue it."
Benning wants to add grit and toughness, "That's something we are targeting in free agency with certain players, to make sure we are hard enough to play against."
Benning says he is talking contract with the agents for Baertschi, Virtanen, Stecher , Pouliot and UFA Archibald, "we would like to bring Archibald back."
Sounds like the #Canucks have checked in on free agent C Riley Nash.
Says Woo kinda reminds him of Bieksa.
UFA window has opened today, the #Canucks have called the agent for C Tyler Bozak and Jay Beagle
Back on Trades -
Minnesota willing to deal Niederreiter / Coyle / Brodin / Dumba if a team takes on Tyler Ennis
A poor version of Karlsson/Ryan combo.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

As long as he follows through with this, and we add some size / grit to support our awesome young talent - then we'll at least be worth watching.

Well I suppose David Perron,
Or JVR.

Other than that, :?:

I don't see much for grit in FA. Not anything that's young enough to make sense.

I can see Minnesota being a much more logical trade partner than Ottawa. Dumba and Coyle wouldn’t look bad on Vancouver’s roster, depending on the price.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

JVR is a giant weenie.

Apparently Canucks are looking to bring Archibald back.

Yeah seems like a JB move get some younger asset that can play now, while taking on the cap dump Ennis.
