Nope. As i replied at the time, I just found that vision rather discouraging. Improved formulations of Doc's special kool-aid administered in the mean time had allowed me to forget.

I quoted you only to offer proper attribution, not to argue.

Yes, because breaking even on trades should still put you in a better overall position because you are balancing out depth, age, position, etc. But you'd like to do better.

Jordan Nolan claimed by Sabres from waivers. So far he's the only guy plucked from waivers.

I was glad when I read that. I think of him as a cheap shot type of guy and he always seemed to run a Canuck or two. Glad to have him back in the East.

Good pickup by the Sabres, it's too bad the Canucks are stacked with depth to take him. :D *salute*



Poor Robby Fabbri -
Robby Fabbri will miss all of the 2017-18 season after re-injuring his surgically repaired left knee.

With the second shot at grabbing anyone from waivers it's safe to assume the Canucks haven't put in a claim for anyone. Amazing what depth does eh. Keeps us off the waiver track. :mrgreen:

Perhaps it was a good idea to separate those two kids.

From SN

Jaromir Jagr won’t be suiting up this weekend for his hometown team HC Kladno in the Czech Republic, according to a report.

Instead, the veteran forward will continue to wait and see if he can get a deal done with an NHL team.


“I won’t play for Kladno because there are still some negotiations in the NHL,” Jagr told iDNES.cz, which was translated by NHL.com. “Those teams don’t want me to play here and I have to respect that.”



One of the teams, not surprisingly, is the St. Louis Blues.

St. Louis, Calgary and a third unidentified team, are all in serious negotions with Jäger. It appears that at least the Blues and Flames are showing the most intense interest. Treliving has said they want Jäger to play on their third line. Blues offering top six, maybe. Deal expected to be announced prior to roster set deadline.

A Sundin moment. That would be a fun one to stir the Bountiful faithful up.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
