I wonder if I could handle the PTSD for the 10's of millions I made playing a sport....
If you could, it’s not really PTSD... :roll:

That being said, Franzén’s problems mainly stem from the repeated concussions, but having a coach that was bullying him for not playing as good when injured as he did when healthy probably didn’t help much.

The good thing is he is now getting better. He suffered four years of constant migraine and insomnia.
Now at least he sleeps and the headaches only come at times.

Would you say the same thing about Rick Rypien?

That sounds a lot like Keenan's handling of both Linden and Gelinas when he was our head honcho. Drove both out for not playing 100% when coming back from injuries.

Mike Keenan deserves a ring of honour plaque for the Linden trade. Set the franchise up for 3 different eras

I still can’t believe the bounty Iron Mike extracted from Mike Milbury for the overrated Trevor Linden. Best trade in franchise history.

Much like what Milbury did to a fan back in the day, Iron Mike ripped Milbury’s shoe off his earthpad and beat him senseless.

Excuse me, sir? Would it be alright if I asked you to take a shift on the third line instead of the second?

I'm sorry to bother you, but I noticed the people on the other team are getting passed you quite often. I know I'm
asking a lot but could you please skate a little faster, if you can?

Definitely although a close 2nd would be the Garth Butcher Dan Quinn for Ronning Courtnall Momesso and Dirk trade

Keenans Linden trade wins because the premium assets kept coming and coming after we used them up and moved them for more bountiful harvests

Umm - Bert for Luongo was the best trade in Franchise History with Nazzy for Stojanov being a close second.

Edit - yes, I understand the Luongo trade doesn't happen without the Linden Trade, but that's two different deals.

I rate that trade down a few notches... Luongo was a good goalie but Linden brought back both Bert and the chip that enabled the hedgehog to snag the twins

Yeah I’ll take Bertuzzi, McCabe and Ruutu myself.

But your other trades are definitely top 5. Also liked the deal with St Louis.

Burkie would have used a different chip than McCabe to snag the twins - he wasn't leaving that draft without them.

Luongo was a great goalie who became the franchise goalie for the Canucks and won a gold medal for Canada as the starter. He was traded for Bertuzzi who played 7 games with Florida before moving on

Naslund became an elite goal scorer and captain for Stojanov's 35 career NHL games after leaving Vancouver.

Bert for Lou was borderline rape and pillage level shit.

This was post Moore incident Bert after all.

The real irony is that Iron Mike made the Linden trade happen that set us up so nicely, and then he made the situation in Florida so lousy for Luongo that Nonis was basically stealing cheeseburgers from comatose drunk when he sent Bert back to Keenan for one of the best goalies in the league.

Keenan really must love Vancouver.

Not sure what other chip Burke was using to get the Hawks to play ball. Ohlund? Jovanovski? Very doubtful there. Aucoin, though a good D man wasn’t getting it done. The Hawks loved McCabe.
