Flames buyout Bubbles good buddy - Troy Brouwer after he cleared waivers. Why do all of Bubbles favourites - Ballard, Booth and Brouwer all get bought out? Did Stanton get bought out? Is McGinn on the verge of being bought out?

So how long has the Avalanches current rebuild gone on for now? Must be year 10. When was Duchene drafted? What a rebuild

The two darlings of the 2013 draft - McKinnon and Drouin contine to bust badly. 3 goals 9 assists for the Great generational - McKinnon and 2 goals and 8 assists for Drouin. Habs will regret trading Sergachyov

UDL, Roberto Macenzzi the Sicilian also wanted to sign Karl Alzner and Andrew Ladd! Two contracts far worse than Loui E’s. The Sicilian likes his slow skating lunch bucket, stone hands, hockey players. Old school

Dude any defending of Loiu Eriksson whatsoever weakens your position. The guy had 7 fucking hits ALL SEASON.

Hes 6'2" 210lbs. I bet Brandon Reid would outhit him 10 years retired ffs.

Alzner and Ladd also suck but best to leave Loui out of any comparison party

There is one bright side...he has historically been a streaky player with hot and cold runs lasting entire seasons. Hes at 2 duds so far so is more than due....

Maybe he finds his groove with EP...he cant get much worse

And yet there’s a post or posts by myself vehemently not wanting anything to do with signing Alzner. Weird...

I wanted both Ladd and Brouwer at reduced term and cap hit but I can see why you would leave that out.

The majority of guys look half decent with longer hair, or at least get away with it.
LE looks ridiculous with that dumb mop.
Start of camp, all the regulars get together and shave it army style.
We'll start from there...
Why? Because your right! It can't get much worse.

I'm telling you right now, Booze McKenzie would be defending a Ladd and Brouwer signing up and down and all the way through the way he defended Ballrard and hair bun Booth, had Jimbro Genius signed the two meatheads.

They were both acquired in trades... Ballard for a pick and a cap dump and a guy they waived. Boot for two veterans that were on their last legs. There are SEVERAL posts of me saying these moves were poor a year after they were made.

You’re reaching here Spandex

Yep. And next day on waivers. Send a message to all the other would-be Canucks.

Lol at Kesler challenging Johansen to a fight from 1000 miles away. RJ stepped on his stick in that scrap but Rk being the chicken shit that he is thinks he somehow won his first ever fight

Ryan Ellis signs an eight year deal for 6.25 million per. Good player, decent cap hit. Roman Josi is there best D man and criminally underpaid at 4 million per. He has two more years left. His next contract will start with an 8 or 9 instead of a 4.

I wonder if there’s some truth to Nashville shopping Pernell Karl. They have some good young D men coming up.

From SportsNet

Edmonton Oilers defenceman Andrej Sekera will be out indefinitely after undergoing surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon.

The Oilers said on Twitter that Sekera was injured during an off-season training session.


Now that they are down another Dman.......just saying.
The only HW the Canucks need
