  1. What you have being saying the last couple pages contradicts what you were saying earlier about “cheering to lose because that’s what their good at in order to win.” If you believe what you are currently saying, then you wouldn’t be cheering for them to lose, you would just be cheering. Also, Dude, get bent.
  2. Boeser is going to be plagued throughout his career with injuries if he doesn't learn to keep his feet moving and his head up. He is still getting nailed like a rookie out there and it's taking a toll on him. He needs to pick up the pace when he gets back and learn to take/avoid checks.
  3. I’ll admit, I was worried he was going to see a steady decline in usefulness at the end of last season. However, since the emergence of Hughes, he no longer takes those risky offensive pinches that he was getting caught on a lot because Hughes has taken that roll to be the primary offensive push from the back end. This has allowed Edler to now just be a really well rounded defenseman with strong defensive zone coverage and grinding along the boards. I can see us keeping him as a defensive specialist moving into his golden years.
  4. Amongst all the praise and attention our young stars are garnering this year, Edler is still the backbone of our defense in my opinion. He has my vote for the Unsung Hero Award this year.
  5. The kid was on pace for 38 goals in his rookie season and you say it's a "looooooong stretch" that he hits 40 in his career? Get real man.
  6. I thought Boeser was missing urgency in his game this year and hasn’t looked the same since his first year when he was able to dangle and rip 1-timers. Toffoli will bring that energy, similar to Miller, and honestly it will be nice to see - especially on PP1.
  7. From what I can recall, I wouldn't consider him a "tough" player, but he doesn't have any fear about driving to the net or digging into board battles. He gets very little PIMs yearly, so he's not gonna beat anyone up for us. Always hated him when we played him.
  8. Agreed. He definitely has some skill, but I don't think his skill is enough to make him a top 6 player. At his size, he is going to get recked. He's not elusive like Johnny Hockey. We can barely stand one of the best players in the league (EP40) getting pushed around like that, let alone having another guy like Madden on the team being pushed over as well.
  9. Now you are starting to sound like that little guy that JV18 ran over the other week...
  10. Boston is just simply better defensively. We can't get anything going offensively other than from the outside.
  11. It sounds to me that you are constructing arguments from both sides in order to justify your trade Tanev viewpoint. On the one hand you say things like, and I'm paraphrasing, "we aren't going to make the playoffs without him, so why bother? Trade him for picks." On the other hand, you suggest that our depth may be enough to cover his worth regardless. Which is it that you believe? You also seem determined that Tanev won't be re-signed, which you really have no idea about whether that is going to happen or not. I think most people here, and the Canucks organization themselves, believe that playoff experience is more valuable than an additional pick at this point in time. Tanev, and hopefully Tryamkin, will be a big part of that experience. Team Tank is over for the next decade, so you might as well move it to the trade/proposals section.
  12. Exactly. We are currently second in the Western Conference... and people are suggesting to trade our best defensive dman, with no immediate replacement, for a draft pick? I guess it takes awhile to shake off the rebuild mindset.

  14. He doesn’t have far to go to reach the top 10, but there are some significant seasons put up near the top that are clearly unattainable. U19 top seasons in the KHL:
  15. It does, it really does... When it's a player for a player, or a player for known picks, no. But, we are talking about a changing variable here. The value changes depending on where we end up in the standings. I don't know what it is that is preventing you from understanding that.
  16. Yes, this is true. But I have no idea why you are stating this, but it actually goes to reinforce what I am saying about how the value of what we are returning to Tampa Bay has yet to be decided because the conclusion of the trade has not happened yet. You are demonstrating that you have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to risk in this trade or value within it. As it relates to this trade, TJ Miller's play effects the outcome of this trade because his play improves our team, and the improvement in our team means higher placement in the standings. A higher finish in the league means the value of the pick being returned to Tampa Bay is lower (see your previous comment about a 31st having lower value). Thus, if we finish high in the standings and have a good playoff run, we would getting a better return and value in this trade because Benning bet on us winning and won. *(note: this is all based on hypotheticals of us winning, which we haven't done yet)
  17. Oh, Peaches. My advice? Stick with the bolded and forget about the rest. Cause really... what's more valuable? A 1st overall pick or a 31st overall pick? Of course the value is changing.
  18. 1. The fair price was a high price. Both the reporters and Benning are right. 2. It's not a "landslide" victory of a trade, or "fleecing" as you want to call it. But, the Canucks are sure happy with how it is trending for them. I still don't get the impression that you understand how "risk" operates under these kind of trade conditions. 3. This isn't EA Sports. Just because you want to pay less for value, doesn't mean that BriseBois is going to give it to you - no matter much you want to spin the circumstances. This is purely your opinion, which you are entitled to.
  19. Reading comprehension fails you apparently. 1. A first round pick is always a high price to give away. It doesn't mean they gave up too much. 2. Who cares? 3. Yeah, it could. But, it might not. What's your point?
  20. It doesn't even do that. No where does it make that statement or show what the general consensus was. And just to repost my previous edit: just to back up most people's perspective and how bizarre your take is, here is a quote from Benning himself: “They were asking for more than we gave up,” Benning said. “I don’t like trading first-round picks but I thought this was the right guy.” Source: (https://nationalpost.com/sports/hockey/nhl/ed-willes-canucks-paid-a-high-price-for-j-t-miller-but-hes-been-worth-every-penny/wcm/5b2d2535-802b-4095-ba2d-124bed77e61b?video_autoplay=true)
  21. Like I said, bizarre. That article you linked states nothing of the sort (https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/canucks-make-bold-j-t-miller-trade-questions-remain-defence/).
