  1. You know what they are getting paid. To Play! So dont and stay home and give up your wage.
  2. OP said this would be his preferred line up. Miller - Pettersson - Toffoli Roussell - Horvat - Boeser Pearson - Gaudette - Leivo Motte - Sutter - Virtanen I would make a few changes reason Size this is the playoffs Miller - Pettersson - Toffoli Pearson- Horvat - Boeser Virtanen - Gaudette - MacEwen Roussell - Beagle - Sutter Black Aces = Leivo - Motte - Eriksson - Bailey - Bartschi - Lind - Graovac - Jasek Hughes - Tanev Edler - Myers Fantenberg - Stecher/ Rafferty/ Benn Black Aces = Benn - Rafferty - Brisebois - Juolevi - Sautner Stecher will be exposed by the bigger Wild forwards.
  3. Rafferty will make the Canucks out of trading camp see you later Stecher.
  4. Need to sign Tryamkin to 1 year deal 3 mil then see if he is good or not. If he is give him a multi year deal at 5 mil or trade him for something of equal value. If he impresses' but wont sign trade him for a young D man that will be a stud. I would not sign Stecher to any contract, package him for picks and move on .Rafferty can fill his space for less and be better at it.
  5. I like this lineup, sign Toffoli ( 6 mil x 5 years), Trade Demko and Hoglander to Detroit for F. Zadina, Trade Virtanen to Buffalo for C.Miller or D. Severson from New Jersey Miller Pettersson Boeser Pearson Horvat Toffoli Ferland Gaudette Zadina Roussell Beagle MacEwan Motte Leivo Sutter, Eriksson, Baertschi gone Hughes Myers Edler Rafferty Tryamkin Miller or Severson Oj Benn Markstrom Dominque
  6. I agree Big Physical RD is needed. Rafferty will replace Stecher.
  7. Mac will be a difference maker for the Nucks.
  8. Until Horvat is replaced yes a perfect second line center but everyone is replaced.
  9. Whats the status of Markstrom and Leivo as well as Boeser
  10. Green loves to play it safe. Play the right side of the puck. Frankly he has ruined Virtanen . You see glimpses of the old Virtanen who played with reckless abandon once in awhile . Look at MacEwen , thats a power forward. Let Virtanen go, use his speed play reckless. With his shot and speed he should be a 50 to 60 point guy. Green is teaching the defensive side but killing the creativity .
  11. Lind is ready for a look . He is a élite playmaker that will excel at this level is a driver and plays with sand paper. Will make the team next year.
  12. Craig Button is right maybe they are holding Rafferty back this year so he doesn't loose his rooky status next year, Like Quinn Hughes Rafferty has a lot upside.
  13. Madden as well as Lockwood are great collage players but I see little room for them coming up .Probably why Madden was moved. Gaudette and Horvat will slot down as more skilled guys are developed . Beagle will be gone before his contract is up. We have more centers in the pipe line coming .
  14. What annoys me the most is Guys like MacEwen dont get enough chances to shine and other players Vets to speak of do but they just coast out there. Green needs to wake up and sit the vets and play guys like Mac. Virtanen needs to play like MacEwen , and he used to but Green has him playing like he is walking on glass afraid to make a mistake .Let the boys be boys . Turn them loose, too much structure kills the creative playing spirit. Horvat and Virtanen both could play with a little more passion.
  15. Demko / Virtanen for Filip Zadina and Jared McIsaac straight up .
  16. If you want to get rid of Eriksson trade to Ottawa after his bonus they will be happy to get him the cap floor needs to be made throw in a b prospect. like Goldobin rumour has it they liked him.
  17. Trading Virtanen to dump a a contract would be a terrible waste Package Virtanen and Demko for Filip Zadina now your talking
  18. Sorry its not how it works intimidation is still a factor in the NHL. Power play is a deterrent some what but only if its effective sometimes you need a good old fashion two handed slash on the perpetrator then a elbow to the head to be left alone . Skate buy their bench and say your stars are next.
  19. No one is saying fight Lucic we are saying flatten they guy thats doing the damage against Pettersson.
  20. Even the commentators wonder why the Cunucks dont stick up for Pettersson . Crosschecked, slue footed time to fire this coach . I guess management doesn't care about its stars.
