I had to go check his profile to see what you're talking about, I turn off most of the board features that annoy me (avatars, signatures etc).

You're a funny guy Dave, but you've gotta admit the avatar suits the poster in this case no?

43 years of this hasn't made you accept it? The sooner you get with the program the better you will feel.

If that was the point why close with: "Starting to come around to RD's POV?"

RD rags on Gillis for not preparing Canucks for the post-Sedin era.

You seem to be ragging on him for the opposite reason.

If I were to rag on Gillis it would along the lines of the latter

.... although I would point to... other... moves/non-moves.

We could win the Cup the next 3 years in a row and a certain you-know-wot would still find things to bitch about.

Good to know our Dogsalmon is a dog of a different colour....

Wy does everybody seem to think that the Canucks have this 'window' that ends when the Sedins retire? Does that automatically turn this team into Calgary?

Gillis and co are smart people - if necessary they'll kick start a rebuild by trading Kesler, Edler, Schneider, Hamhuis, etc and get value back in return. Yes this team will be hurt when the twins are gone but it won't mean they aren't competitive anymore. Lots of transactions will happen between now and then.

TBH I don't read all of RD's posts. I gather he doesn't love Gillis, no idea why.

How uninspiring do the Canucks look against Columbus in the first here? Gah.

Because they listen to the TEAM 1040 and Don Taylor, B Mac, Sekeres, Blake Price etc said so.

This board is less bipolar than CDC or hfboards but Canucks fans have earned their stripes by and large of being the most retarded fans in the NHL. So if the [xxxxxxx]s at the TEAM say there is a window then there is a fucking window. Most of the fans who listen to those idiots breathe out of their mouth unconditionally and likely follow the same guy to work every day but damnit Don Taylor and Jason Botchford said there was a window so it has to be true.

Blob - I ask you seriously.

After the Sedins retire what do we have coming up to replace them? Unless a significant trade or we draft someone(s) we do have a limited window to go far. i just don't see anything in the minors ready to come up within the next 2 - 3 years to start playing and take over 2nd line duty as Kesler/Burrows takes over the first line.

Burrows is only a year younger than the twins.....not sure how he's gong to help "take over" with Kesler when the Sedins retire.

Are the Sedins retiring after next year or something?

Besides, Burrows and Kesler are not first line players who can carry the scoring load on a Stanley Cup contender.....at least not without the Sedins for linemates.

WTF Reef.....I thought you said you were asking seriously.....
