    [PGT] Vancouver Canucks at San Jose Sharks | Feb. 16, 2019

    Ah, so collect all the high picks until that magical day where the Canucks can "Turn Competitive Mode On" and instantly compete for Stanley Cups for a decade? Yeah, a team gets bad so you get high picks. As you develop those high picks your team will get better. See how that works?
  2. Heh, and because SNL never ever made fun of Clinton or Obama....ever! I'd ask how stupid Trump thinks people are but that has been answered numerous times throughout this thread.
  3. Yes, yes it is. Edmonton wouldn't know any better, shhhh.

    Yep, not making the team a little better and leaving Horvat, Pettersson, and Markstrom out to dry all season long to get a marginally better pick was the way to go.
  5. The returns in "weaponizing cap space" are hardly worth it. The Leafs got nothing for taking on Horton except Clarkson off of their books. The Coyotes got the 16th OA pick in a draft for taking on Datsyuk....but had to give up the 20th OA, 53 OA, and a prospect (a trade perhaps not worth it even without the burden of Datsyuk's cap hit). Or maybe the Bolland trade. For taking him on the Coyotes got Lawson Crouse, but gave up a 2nd and 3rd rounders. Once again, it's not as if Arizona taking on Bolland let them get Crouse at a huge discount. Ah, but Washington gave up a 2nd rounder for Orpik! Yeah, but Washington also sent Grubauer with that trade. Once again, the primary part of that trade is Grubauer for a 2nd rounder, Orpik, at best, makes the return marginally better. GMs, nowadays, simply aren't willing to give up much for other teams to take on their bad contracts. Sure we can get Edmonton's first for Lucic, provided they don't win the lottery, and we give them our first (perhaps 5 spots later), our 2nd round pick and Tori Utonen.

  7. For free a month ago when there was no room on the roster so we'd have to give away Schaller or Goldobin to make room for him?
  8. You mean the ones that role was to bridge the gap until the young guys were ready?
  9. Oilers could have had Gagner too when he went on waivers. Canucks Army is so worried about "value added" yet they don't see the value in someone that has cleared waivers?

    The Canuck D is closer than we think

    Agree. People are giving props to how good Stecher has been and rightfully so. I think Stecher-like is Juolevi's floor.

    OMG Snow?

    Need to get into Van for ProD. Thinking a better leave extra time to arrive via transit.
  14. Wohaa, Toronto didn't "fix" that call?

    Not necessarily. Distance from Vancouver to Winnipeg is not much different than Winnipeg to Toronto.
