  1. You still have not proven your NHL experience. Are you trolling? Why is it you think you know more than paid NHL management like JB? Narcissistic behavior?

The other poster stated their belief was that top 5 picks should be NHL ready. In the last ten years, with the real list of drafted top 5 prospects () 40% do not play in the NHL right away after being drafted. Edit: my apologies to 10pavelbure96 and horvatisaboss for the wrong names I found online - I should have noted it was wrong before posting ---
  3. Apologies.....came from wiki..........I should know better. Will fix it...
  4. From https://www.nhl.com/news/nhl-season-opening-roster-breakdown-facts-and-figures/c-309686396 By percentage, skaters are younger than goalies. Of the 626 skaters, 483 (77.2 percent) are less than 30 years old; 143 (22.8 percent) are 30 or older. So according to the NHL itself, 23% of skaters in the NHL are 30 or older. Your statement is completely wrong or at the very minimum extremely exaggerated. 23% is quite high. "a very low %" would be under 5% in my opinion.
  5. Edit: wowza...thanks for the heads up....and this list came from wiki...I will fix it...apologies!!
  6. You still have not told all of us where you gained all this real life experience in making NHL trades that you constantly blab about so vociferously. You are completely biased against the acquisition cost of JT Miller which was done at market value. Please quit avoiding the question and answer how long you have been paid to make NHL decisions and trades like Jim Benning has. Please post your resume to show all this valued experience with wish you continue to base your suggested trades on. You can't continue to just keep avoiding answering this and spouting how easily JT Miller could have been acquired for less than a 1st and 3rd round pick. Edit: haha...yeah...we can all type ridiculous posts like you.
  7. The statements you make like the above are so ridiculous. You actually think you know more than others haha. How cute.
  8. Did they go back to that toxic soup hfcanuks? Good lol. That place is disgusting but also full of posters that think they know more than actual paid hockey Canuck management and they just circle jerk the negativity hoping the Canucks fail in threads such as the tank thread. I can smell their stink from here.
  9. You just stir up s&%$ with nothing to back it up. And if you need me to clarify, YOU SAY the Canucks could have gotten JT Miller cheaper. YOU SAY that no one else wanted JT Miller. YOU SAY that a cap team like Tampa would have taken less. My my......how does some random poster have soooo much more internal NHL information about the trade market than us other posters or even NHL insiders. So no, you are not some white knight trying to bring knowledge to the illiterate. You just think you are an expert when you are just another poster like the rest of us thinking your opinion is more right. And...you are never willing to admit there are smarter people like JB out there making hockey trades as they need to be made. I can't believe you just continue with this crap. It must give you some kinda weird high lol. Edit: The Canucks acquiring JT Miller in a trade was an excellent trade by JB. He totally rocked it.
  10. A big NO thanks. We need Tanev much more than Kapanen. We already have too many forwards.
  11. This guy won't stop!! Love it... Edit: too bad about the score though...just saw 5-2
  12. It certainly is possible. But there is also no reason to worry too much about the draft 1.5 years away. Whichever goalie plays better should stay imo.
  13. I agree with you 100%. However, when you go to almost every NHL team page they all have fans saying that about their heavy (weight wise) guys. There are very very few NHL players that play "hard" and hit constantly within the NHL.
