  1. Do you think the Sedins Retire at the end of this Season?

    If it's their choice, they would sign another contract if it were offered by the Canucks only. If it's the team's choice, I'm hoping they wouldn't offer them a new contract and, in which case, then they would retire as Canucks. Since they're 37 by the end of next year, what other team might want them considered the recent trends in the league: younger and faster. Would they sign a contract with another team?? Doubtful given what they've said. Time to let the situation take its natural course; let the universe unfold as it should.
  2. TSN Grades Canucks Lowest of all Canadian Teams on July 1st

    If they're ranking all the teams on their efforts on July 1st, how does Edmonton -who signed no-one- rank higher than all the other Canadian teams? I'd give them an F for what they accomplished on Free Agent Frenzy Day!!!!!
  3. Discussion (Acquiring Speed and Size)

    This proposal would entirely ruin the Canuck's future. So no on all counts. You're giving away 2 firsts at a time when draft picks should be coveted. I like your idea of acquiring size and grit but not at the expense of future draft picks.

    With the expansion draft happening this year, most teams are going to be very cautious. I can't see many teams swinging a trade and then losing players to this draft. This years trading deadline, i expect, will be minimal and boring. For the Canucks this will be just like last year; however, the summer may be a lot more interesting.

      We're into the end of summer. You know when the PNE is here when the rain comes out.

  8. Comeback of the red line offside

    If the NHL could actually entertain the idea of a better brand of hockey for players and fans, that is if it's the game that's important, then they might want to consider the olympic sized ice. Lots of the problems with the game then are solved with the bigger ice surface. Too bad it's money that's really important and therefore, the amount of seat sales lost in the league's reconfiguring the structure of the arenas to accommodate the larger ice size will equal loss of revenues which owners loathe. I love the brand of olympic hockey that's played every 4 years. I see players too busy skating to the open ice and passing and scoring with skill and finesse to get too caught up in the slowness of the NHL brand of shinny played every year. Not to mention a wider field in the NFL and higher baskets in the NBA. Players were different back in the day and players today are bigger, faster, stronger, better trained: shouldn't it be time to consider changing some of the parameters of professional games so these finely tuned athletes can be liberated from playing their game in a closet and have some space created where they can excel. This is, of course, a moot point so let's hear some ideas about how the Olympic sized ice might be a good solution to the physicality, especially injuries, of the game. I like the idea of 'wide open' and putting the red line back on the ice will, in my opinion, just chop up the flow of the game.
