Almost as good as if the Flames sucked this bad. :D :lol:
Nah, I prefer the flames juuuust missing the playoffs than being a lottery team :sly:
True. If the Flames end up a few points out of a playoff spot, the doors will be open for some truly stupid, long term decisions!!

I am comfortable with this :)

If you weren't impressed with Tkachuks game at the WJC's then get off the glue. Even ole Ray Ferraro says he's taking Thachuk 2nd overall.
:lol: Right then, based on fuck all!

It really depends on who's drafting in that position so it's odd that you'd be so confident given there's no consensus. Hopefully the Canucks will simply get lucky and be able to add another top end talent in this draft.

And this is coming from the same poster who still refuses to admit that Mathew Tkachuk was a far better draft pick than Olli Juolevi . He’s a clown

Oiler fans are fucking choked right now, they want everyone gone except McDavid.
Milan the Pastry Chef Lucic and his delicious Turnovers ain't going anywhere.

How's Ryan Strome
How's Kris Russell
How's Puljiarvi
How's Talbot
How's Larsson
What they get for Yakupov?
How's Reinhart?
Where's Schultz? Where's Davidson?

Chiarelli - genius!
Lol Poolparty is crap but Juolevi is a stud. Keep the laughs coming . One guy is an NHLer and the other has been a healthy scratch at times in the Finnish beer league.

Lol not me but it must be frustrating to the “we had to draft a d man because” crowd that Sergachev, Macevoy and Chychrun are looking good in the league while Olli looks nowhere near playing in the NHL. Or Tkachuk who’s well on his way to being a top 3 forward.

Only a fucking idiot would say we have to draft a d man. Once again this team is thin at every skating position and not drafting the best player available is asinine. One needs to look no further than 2014 and 2016 when the Elmer drafted for perceived need and took a dump in the top 6. BPA Elmer BPA.

I think the Canucks definitely need to address their defense. They usually take longer to develop and you have a decent amount of forwards ready to go. Dont want to end up in an Edmonton situation where you are burning your cheap entry level years still trying to balance your team out.

Having said that if theres a forward who is clearly a better prospect you cant reach. Trading down i suppose is also a possibility.

There's more to posting on a fucking Canucks message board than being condescending towards your fucking Canucks GM.

Why, I'd say 99% of the posts here are something other than dat dere. :eh:

I think you stung him, IN. Yours was, to my way of thinking, the definitive rebuttal.

I'm not volunteering to do an inventory, but it seems to me that a significant part of the Canucks Corner Chat segment of the board is about what the professionals who actually run the Canucks should be doing.
