  1. Right, can you also predict the future? I have no problems with the players, but as I've said before, let's wait and see what happens in the years 3 and 4.
  2. You just sound like someone who can't take it when they don't agree with you. I've been a Benning supporter here and enjoy calling out trolls (especially on the media Botch and Paterson), this is just one of the few moves that I've thought were questionable by JB. Like I said, I like the idea of these signings, just not the execution.
  3. I can't predict the future, so I can't say this will hurt the team in 3 or 4 years. But they could have given themselves more flexibility in the future. You're also just speculating, a 3M cap hit may not be insurmountable right now but it might make a difference in 3/4 years. But like you said (and many on here), it's not my money, so why worry about it right?
  4. Calm down, a little dramatic there don't you think? I'm simply disagreeing the numbers because I'm not a fan of the terms and the players as much as you or the others here. Don't need to make it personal. If you really have a problem with my opinions then PM me.
  5. I care about them being overpaid as you do. I'm just making sure you think they're overpaid as well, because you're starting to sound borderline delusional with your arguments. But glad you think so.
  6. All fair points. I suppose if the Canucks are in cap trouble in 3 years, that would mean guys like Pettersson, Boeser, Demko, Gaudette etc must be playing well.
  7. Probably, but does that mean Beagle gets twice as much as Brodziak just because he's better in the dressing room? Who knows. Brodziak might have not even been an option since he might of preferred going to Edmonton. I'm just pointing out that that's the type of deal that would have been right up the Canucks alley (exactly like Schaller).
  8. Obviously I can't predict which specific players would be ready in the bottom 6 (in the next couple of years), but the Canucks should and could have given themselves much more flexibility in the future. No doubt they will help next and likely the year after, but we'll see what happens in years 3 and 4.
  9. No, the point I'm making is that they had options - they could have walked away when the price was too high, or signed someone like Kyle Brodziak (a year older than Beagle, not as good in the face offs, but more physical, and scores more points) on a 2 year deal. But again, I'm sure Beagle will be fine for the first couple of years. We'll see how it goes in years 3 and 4.
  10. Not only did they overpay, but the term is too long. I guess this isn't a battle I'll win on CDC, but the contract(s) will be a problem in years 3 and 4, when many of young guys will finally be knocking on the door. It would have been perfectly fine if the deals were two years but according to all the Assistant GMs over here, these contracts can easily be traded, buried in the minors or bought out. I hope the magic crystal ball is right.
  11. Good on you for doing the research, but Beagle and Roussel are overpaid and the term is too long and you know it. Quit trying to convince yourself (and us) otherwise. They're fine players, but they benefited from a bidding war that the Canucks could have easily walked away from.
  12. [Signing] Oilers sign Kyle Brodziak

    This is a fair question. And there isn't that much of a difference actually, Brodziak is a year older and isn't as good in the faceoffs but the grit factor is about the same. Brodziak is also better offensively. This signing would have made more sense for the Canucks than Beagle.
  13. Not really, the draft picks were a given. They basically traded Buffalo, although still effective players, cap dumps. They also managed to not trade away guys like Paryko, Fabbri, Thomas, Kostin and Kyrou, who were all rumored to go. It's a solid deal for both teams, but all depends on how St Louis does this season.
  14. [Signing] Maple Leafs sign John Tavares
