  1. [Rumour] Canucks interested in Hanifin

    ...It's a beautiful disaster to watch
  2. [Rumour] Canucks interested in Hanifin

    I totally agree with this. My guess is they would want Bo, and I don't know with the value of young defensemen that that is a ridiculous ask... I just don't think it's a 'make sense' trade for us.
  3. [Rumour] Canucks interested in Hanifin

    While I agree they may WANT that I disagree about taking it and running. OJ is a premier defensive prospect who very well may be in the neighbourhood of what Hanifin is given another two to three years of development. Why give up OJ plus another player in the 7OA who could be a top 4 D or a top 6 forward for Hanifin? Seems counterproductive to me. And just to be clear... I think Hanifin is worth A LOT, I just don't see it making sense.
  4. I’m not being daft. I’m putting the trade in historical perspective. I thought we should have got more at the time as well... now looking back I feel like we made out like bandits based on the fact that goalies simply are not good trade chips.
  5. You would pay a multiple cache of first rounders for one of those guys? Vasilevsky is the only goalie I can think of that would maybe be worth moving 7OA for but I still wouldn’t do that trade. We got a top 10 pick for a goalie. FOR A GOALIE. Has that ever even happened before?
  6. Just out of curiosity... how many goalies in the NHL currently do you (collectively) think would fetch a top ten pick in this years draft? Edit: maybe a better question: take Demko and DiPietro out of our system and are there any goalies you would be willing to move our 7th overall for?
  7. I don’t know that that’s necessarily true. In fact I actually think that’s fairly close to fair value.... maybe add a bit one way or another but I’d argue it’s gotta be in the ball park.
  8. Is SJ defiantly overpaying him or is he defiantly being overpaid????
  9. I think a good chunk of CDC doesn’t realize that the ‘tear down’ stage of this rebuild is probably primarily over and that the older players that are left outside of perhaps a d-man are probably pieces management intends to keep around. At some point you have to actually start building to be a rebuild... Sutter is - for lack of better terms - a part of the foundation of that rebuild.
  10. Anytime you can trade an average to even above average starting goalie for a young first line center it's a good trade.
  11. [Report] Marian Hossa announces retirement

    Cap recapture garbage aside... Hossa was a pretty dang good hockey player.
  12. This draft more than any other recently I'm pretty non-committal on who I want. I prefer more 'rounded' defensemen like Bouchard and Dobson but really like the upside of Hughes and Boqvist.... at the end of the day, after pulling Petterson last year I'll be very excited for whoever we draft (with the exception of Tkachuk... it'll take me a while to get excited there ).

    I’ve got to give it to you 5th... you’re nothing if not persistent

    It’s a Strange summary because you’re downplaying it as a minor inconvenience on one hand while acting like the world very well may be over on the other. Anything he added on to his already historic year was icing on the cake... the fact that he was even at worlds is nuts. Now he gets a couple weeks off and will be able to start training with the use of his healed thumb about the time the Stanley cup champs do... he should be getting used to that timeline for training anyways

    ‘A minor injury and an inconvenience’ is a strange way to sum up the following....
