Richardson is like the new Ryan Johnson. All looking busy skating hard n stuff but not really accomplishing anything.

It's just another example of how Gillis has driven this team into the ground and is simply riding the coattails of Dave Nonis and Brian Burke. The Canucks could have had Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn, but Gillis decided to go after Richardson and David "Bimbo" Booth instead.

.... and yet you said "handcup" in what some might call a "Freudian slip"... Todd. :hmmm:

Anyhoo...

Yeah, pretty much everyone knew the Booth trade was a gamble

(so you're no genius).

And obviously said gamble was: Will Booth live up to his contract?

True that if a GM makes this kind of gamble... and loses... he deserves criticism.

As for the Ballard trade... it’s true you were against it from the beginning (I checked).

But then you, like your pal the Dude, are a Grabner-lover from way back

... and thusly took out your frustrations on poor old "Baltard" from the get-go.

Not that there's anything wrong with it. :mex:

Hey Strangelove,

Do you agree with Canuckscorner.com poster Royaldude that the Canucks should trade for Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn?

Also - piggybacking on what Royaldude is saying, I think Gillis is a sub-par GM that has simple ridden the coattails of Dave Nonis and Brian Burke. I also HATE David Booth.

Fuck David Booth! :mad:

At the very least, it's fair to assume they were separated at birth.

Although, I must add that everyone hates David Booth these days.

Even yours truly. :shock:

Royaldude is the best poster on here brah.

I bet if Royaldude was GM of the Canucks, we'd be where the Hawks and Blues are at current.

Is that you Robby, please step away from the crack pipe and get yourself some help! Toronto already has one gonge show with the Laffs, they don't need another in the Mayors chair.

I have already compared him to Andrew Ebbet

I like Richardson. Overall, he has been pretty good for the 3rd-4th line, hard-working guy, decent defensively, plays PK, popped in some points early on, but bit on the small side though. He did have a bad game vs panthers, standing around on 1st goal and came in late on the 2nd goal. I think he'll bounce back.

"And Bersnoozi does a Freudian spino-rama around Strangelove, the crowd goes WILD!"

*RAAAWWWRRRR* :lol:

Yup, I always had a bad feeling with the Baltard and Boothy trades, but honestly with the Baltard trade specifically, I didn't like giving up a first pick over giving up Machine Gun Grabner. I had my doubts about Grabner and I thought MayRay would be the better player in the end. Well, Grabner had one monster year so far and MayRay had a serious injury, but really struggled the last couple years, so the Nucks let him walk. I'm glad MayRay is having a nice start in TO, but he has been known to disappear down the stretch. Hopefully, he'll remain healthy and I think he knows if he doesn't play consistently, this could be his last stint in the NHL. That should keep him motivated and hungry to play hard every night.

Anyways, Grabner is having a slow start, but he still has lots of time to turn it around. He seems to be a very streaky guy. The 1st pick turned out to be Quinton Howden and he's looking like a prospect that's far from the NHL right now; kind of like our Nick Jensen unfortunately. The pick turned out to be a bit of a bust (as of now) and Grabner is looking like a good NHLer.

This is the way I feel about Booth... It's like footprints in the sand. Right now Booth is going through a rough spot, and is being carried.

The unfortunate thing about this is Jesus obviously fucking sucks at hockey. :lol:

“No one holds me to a higher expectation than myself,” said Booth, who turns 29 on Sunday. “To whom much is given, much is required and that's a biblical principle and one that's always stuck with me. I understand that I've been given much and obviously much is expected. I know that I could be better. I know that I have to score.

We should trade for Crosby too!
