  1. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    Not saying Karlsson’s 43 goal are a fluke or an 1 season wonder, but they do happen. Look up one of the most famous players to fit into this category “Chris Kontos” 92-93 season with T bay. I would expect Karlsson’s numbers to drop next season. I would also expect the Knights to much worse next season as well. I believe(and they can go ahead and prove me wrong) that they had a lightning in a bottle season. See 2005 Oilers, 2004 Flames. Both teams had no business being in the Cup finals. Multiple player on each team had years that were far above there true talent level. The next season the teams came back to reality. Not just cup finals hangover, but have been pretty crapy ever since. The Knights do have a better goalie, and that does help them. But asking that many players to have career years again.... thats a big ask.
  2. Jett Woo | D

    If and when Jett makes the team, can we still Wooo! After every goal? Or are we forced to save that for when Jett scores??
  3. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    Goldy reminds me of fictional character Ebby Calvin Laloosh. Million Dollar talent .05c head. If he could just put it together.
  4. goals,goals...from who?

    I guess I could see... Pettersson:22 Virtanen:15-18 Sutter:18 Eriksson:20-30 Baertschi:25 Boeser: 35 Horvat:25-30 Grany:8-25 Goldy:8-25 Leipsic:5-15 I see Erik, Grany, and Goldy as real wild cards. I could see Erik getting lots of goals on the power play cleaning up garbage from B.B. and EP, plus if QH is on the point getting shots through. Also when teams start to over play both B.B. and EP to take there shots away it should really open up for the down low or net front player( whom ever that is). Grany and Goldy are 2 players who have a really good shot and the abilities to score on a regular basis. There the kind of players who’s point totals can balloon if there line mates are the main focus for the defenders. Kind of like a Anson Carter with the Twins.
  5. It would be awesome if we could get involved as a 3rd party, we get a cap dump and ..... 1 pick, toothpick, 3 pick, more. Could be fun times, let the imagination run wild.
  6. [Signing] Islanders sign Robin Lehner

    Wow RL and MM all in the same day. Gotta check Vegas and see which direction the Islanders stanly Cup odds have gone now.
  7. This might sound a tad crazy BUT

    I think there will be times on the power play when you might get to see Hughes rushing up the ice like a forward. Like if a forward retrieved the puck from our zone and Hughes was up at the red line. His skills should allow him to transition up the ice like a forward and not just stop and spin right after entering the offensive zone.
  8. [Proposal] Van-Tor

    I look at this situation like this... we could use Tanev. We don’t need to trade him. Toronto needs a Tanev type D man bad. If Toronto wants Tanev, then they pay us. They can go to plan B, if they don’t like our price. The return I’d prefer is Toronto’s 1st and 2nd in 2019 TO then can go and get what ever they want for who ever they want from who ever is willing to pay there asking price. Its Toronto that have put them selves up against it next year. Not us. They want to go for it this year and add Tan Man to help, then pay up. We are the Hammer, not the nail. Canucks for Life!
  9. Canucks announce new hockey operations roles

    I like all of these moves. The signing of IC could be the best signing the Canucks make all year. Keep up up the good work.
  10. J Sub signs with TO. So much for Tanev going to TO. There D is set now
  11. So what if the numbers were reversed?? instead of 4year 3 mil per it was.... 3years 4mil per ??
  12. Kyper only knows TO. I really enjoy it when he try’s to talk intelligently about anything outside his limited circle. It’s comical, and makes me laugh. But Rick D posted it, and I like and respect Rick D. I chose to read between the lines. If JT picks TO (Don’t think he will) but if he does, then TO might be extra motivated to strengthen there D. That would scream Tanev. Then it’s up to JB to get the right return.
  13. Looks like De Hann could come into play if JT signs with TO(I don’t see this as likely).
  14. [Rumour] Oilers actively shopping Milan Lucic

    I don’t want anything to do with helping Edmonton or taking M.L. We would have to get something huge in return. Edmonton wants to shed dead crap to gain cap, VAN gets- Dead weight + Edm 2019 1st Edm gets - Van 4th round pick or Maybe Van 5th round pick. P. C wants a better return look somewhere else.
