  1. It sucks that we dropped but this format is probably better for hockey. Sent a strong message to tankers.
  2. Alex Burrows is the man. Grinding his way too the NHL. Giving us a decade of maximum effort. Now giving us a slick prospect for potentially another decade. The gift that keeps on giving.
  3. I recently had the opportunity to watch a few knights games as I have been watching my cousin on the team. It was amazing watching Ollie control the pace of the game. He made very few if any mistakes. Made crisp accurate passes in stride and really drove the offense. He put up numbers in all the games. Talking to some staff, players and player parents they all agreed he was as smart as they come and smooth as butter. His shot could use work buy it should improve with weight and strength. My cousin says off the ice Ollie is a real quite well mannered kid who really likes Canadian culture. I was very impressed. Other players that stood out were; mete (montreal) and crawley (un drafted 19 year old). Also rasannen on kingston skates like a newborn deer.
  4. I don't think Vancouver going after Trouba is very realistic. Seems like every time a good player is on the "market" everyone starts throwing our quality players under the bus. I like Tanev but too get a player of Jacobs caliber we would need too add significantly more. We don't have much more too offer, or the need positionally. Trouba is great, but I feel the Canucks are out of this one. We just got Guddy and drafted Ollie.
  5. How long till all our defence and center depth is crippled with injuries....2 months??
  6. Thanks for the feedback! I think I would do Demko and 3rd for Aho. However, I don't have a soft spot for goalies. I would rather this team rolled with Markstrom and added potential top end talents up front . This team needs a game breaking offensive talent and to get you must give. Aho-Horvat-Boeser/Virtanen Juolevi-Guddy/Tanev In my opinion that looks eerily simlar too Chicago's winning combo of Kane-Toews-Sharp/Hossa Keith-Seabrook/Hjalmarson Obviously not as a good (yet, maybe never) but the playing styles and "potentials" are there. I do the 3rd but they probably ask for a 2nd, so there might need to be some tinkering with that. If they weren't interested in a Goalie, then I would try to sell them on Edler/Sbisa/Hansen/Baer + 2nd + prospect (gaunce, brisebois) I could see it happening, with a little overpayment from us, and positional need on Carolinas part. He seems like type of prospect that could really rack up the points, and now might be the cheapest time too buy. I apologize if this is all over the place
  7. Aho is a prospect I really like and I was wondering what people think it would take to pry him from Carolina. I feel like Carolina is the most isolated franchise on planet earth, I have no idea what they are up too. What kind of packages would you offer for this player? or maybe a similar player on another team to compare him with value wise. Aho is a really fun player too watch, has serious creativity and could be Top 6 C with Horvat once Hank hangs em up. Or possibly a scoring/playmaking LW for the future. Who knows, I just like his raw talent and offensive prowess, something the Canucks dont have a ton of. Thoughts? Criticism?
  8. I picked Edler. Then I started typing out why I chose him and completely changed my mind. Turns out I pick Horvat, sorry for tampering with the data.
  9. What has Jake done to get the Wellwood birthday wishes? Did I miss something? Is he fat now?? Happy 20th too Cake Virtanen. Hope he has a good night, and continues to progress as a player.
  10. Etem is fairly physical, at least in my opinion, but not too the affect of Jake. He has good wheels and finishes his checks, however I think Virtanen has the upper hand in shooting. Virtanen can turn broken plays into goals, Etem has trouble burying back door tap ins it seems. I remember near the end of last year how many chances etem had to score and he couldnt make it happen (missing chances is a good problem though). Etem is probably better defensively. Either make a solid athletic bottom 6 winger. I would think Jake going to Utica is best for his development but I hope he makes the team because he is always entertaining, good or bad.
  11. Too be honest I cant really remember everything about EHM but its really similar. Yes the downfall is the actually games themselves are not very entertaining but thats not really what the game is about. Ya the expansion draft is really cool, I also like how there is no "one" way to evaluate players. You have to pick what skills your looking for and see how the stats matched up. I could go on for days about all the things you can do. My biggest problem is that I cant see my depth chart, so I have to look at my contract screen and see where things line up. I agree totally worth 20 bucks, you can spend hours on end fine tuning your team, staff, scouting etc...
  12. I was fairly unclear, but its not an app, its a PC game, full verison. http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/franchise-hockey-manager/?gclid=CMHC1uWXxM4CFQouaQodwZYGCA
  13. As a smaller player with insecurities and maniacal canucks fans I was drawn to Ryp. Inspiring guy too say the least, I've always been the little fiery guy who thinks he's bigger than he was on and off the ice. Watching the giant slayer in action really give me the feels. Guy was my favourite player and when he passed I was floored. Sometimes people with imbalance are so good at one end of the spectrum of life and so bad in the other. I'm glad I got too witness him doing his thing on the ice, and its a real shame he couldn't make it all work. Thoughts go out to his family and friends, i'm sure juice is grinning ear too ear remembering ryp snappin prusts head back. Gotta love Rick Rypien, RIP too the p4p king
  14. Hello all, I am fairly new to the forum, despite being an avid reader for years. I am a big fan of GM mode style games and was getting tired of the EA platform. However I came across a game called Franchise Hockey Manager 2, and it is awesome. It is made by out of the park who makes a bunch of PC baseball games. It is very similar to an old game called Eastside Hockey Manager. You can buy it for 20 bucks on the apple store. Im sure you can find it other ways but I'm not all that computer savy. Anyways, I thought it was worth bringing up, its a very in depth manager game with all up to date rosters for the most part. It is far and away the best GM style game I have ever played. Thoughts? Anyone already play this? Cheers
  15. People keep forgeting we traded our 2nd for Sven. Which is a great deal in my opinion. Recovering this third gives us a full deck in terms of new young players. I'd rather have baer then a 2nd any day of the week. Was hopeful for a 2nd for Lack but am happy with an early third.
