  1. Sutter is where offense goes to die
  2. Frick yes all day long . Ristolainen would make this team away better.
  3. Risto would be a great add Traded for Virtanen plus as long as it isn't a first Stecher,
  4. True but did you read 6 foot 5 a mobile puck moving D man that shoots right and is projected to # 2 Dman
  5. Trade Jake Virtanen to Philadelphia Flyers for Philippe Myers. Myers is another big, mobile player who has promise as a second pairing puck mover. 6 foot 5 inches Right shooting D man Read more at
  6. I'm with you Alf you could lend him to Europe its the same as sending him down to Utica you still get about the same cap relief
  7. One trade P Myers out of Phili Trade Virtanen and Eliot for him . Done
  8. Boeser's job is to score as for the rest of the group Pettersson on a redraft would go # 1 . Hughes 50 point D man , this year. the rest of the supporting cast would match up to a lot teams. Trenders, LOL this how you build a winner unless you are in love with Toronto or Tampa both are high end high skilled teams look where that got them in the playoffs. Its fine to win 60 games but in the Playoffs it about playing the right way and to play heavy. Skill helps but its how much fight the team has in them. Pettersson is high end skill , Horvat brings everything a coach could ask for, The team is very close. One more top 2 Dman and I would say look out
  9. I think you will see more D picked next year. we should be a bubble team we are two good D away from being a contender for the play offs
  10. You worry too much JB will have to move one guy and we are not loosing Boeser he will sign
  11. Your kidding right ,this will be a very good team. the Canucks will be 10 wins better than last year.
  12. The game has changed so get over it 4th line players are developing and are going to be 3 and 2 line players as they produce . Its a faster and more skilled game . If a player is better than his line he will move up .Opportunity to move up will always be there. If Jake is capable to play in the top 6 he will play in the top 6. This year he will earn his spot too many players better right now.
  13. Instead of that Trade LE + SB to Ottawa for Bobby Ryan and a second this is a win / win for both teams
  14. BB will get signed a lot of hand wringing going on the sky is falling LOL. The point JB is making is no more pushing around our stars we are bigger meaner and harder to play against. So if you want to play hockey we can play any style you want. The press have been saying that JB is chasing the style of past Cup winners. Well look at the past 2 Big Skilled and can play anyway you want. Looks like the Canuck's are trending that way.
  15. Gaudette will have to make a bigger statement this year and show he can drive play and scoring
  16. I think JB is in the College sign mod meaning all our next D prospects are going to come from that route.
  17. While I disagree on JB,s earlier picks I think we are on track picking up more draft picks should be his focus for the next two years we need growth in prospects to allow the transition of the core . Trades to get an first pick back at the dead line and to add more seconds,. Its going to take 3 years to transition this team to be playoff regulars. The faces of this team will change and todays Vets will be gone. Defense should be Jim's focus
  18. How many chances does LE need to prove his self ? Move on , make an example of him, let him ride the pine Utica bound, then demote him to the press box.
  19. and one more spot on the roster up here for a prospect so whats your solution ?
  20. True enough , but everyone is different , give him the dog and pony send him down them bring him up bag skate him .
  21. You don't know what will happen MacEwen may or may not become a top 6 NHL-er Training camp will tell.
  22. Send LE to Utica Let his ego want to make him retire.
  23. I think that the plan is to unload LE and Tanev at least . Having said that the roster will change as the prospects move vets out not one of us knows or can predict the roster outcome. JB job is to make this team a cup winner ,baby steps.
