  1. I can see us getting another 5+ goal game here... Go Canucks Go!
  2. I think its a great idea! Reliable defenseman Chris Tanev is finally healthy and available to play games, lets play him in just 55 games this season!
  3. Spooshy is from Finland.
  4. I’d say Goldobin and Baertschi are going to be back up as soon as we have injuries here. Sending someone down doesnt mean they are not coming back up so I’m not too worried about it. And if one or both get claimed, good for them. Not the end of the world. It’s not a small business they are running, so tough calls have to be made every now and then.
  5. Soooo... is it safe to return to CDC full-time now or is it still crazy around here? Looking forward to reading factual and coherent posts here during the upcoming season. I’m excited to join in again as all the the explosive and perplexive summer stuff are now only a distant memory.
  6. With Matthews now as Captain Underpants, does anyone remember Patrick Kane being 50 Cent or something similar ways back?
  7. I’m not worried about our scoring. But our defensive game (forwards and d) and lack of quality goaltending has so far been sad to watch.
  8. Ferland - Pettersson - Boeser Baertschi - Horvat - Miller Pearson - Sutter - Leivo Motte - Beagle - Virtanen Goldobin, Gaudette IR Roussell Edler - Myers Hughes - Tanev Benn - Stetcher Biega Markström - Demko
  9. Great! I was starting to get worried. he should get a fair shot there as their blueline most likely isn’t quite set.
  10. Great. Never in doubt but it took a while longer than I would have wanted. Nice deal btw. I was expecting a higher AAV to be honest.
  11. I hope he can get something done eith an NHL team. He definitely should be in the NHL and not KHL etc.
  12. I don't know if the behind the scenes footage was available with subtitles when he was drafted. Couldn’t find the clip I’m talking about either now. But on it he and his agent Markus Lehto were discussing him falling past Columbus in the draft when he looked like he was going third overall. Lehto said something in the lines of; I told you we couldn’t trust him (Jarmo Kekäläinen), I told you he can’t be trusted. There was some more negative stuff directed at Kekäläinen by Lehto but I can’t remember excatly what was said. Something about him being a weasel or something. This hasn’t really got anything to do with anything, but at the time it changed my opinion about him a bit. I was a big fan as we had just won the gold medal at the juniors with Aho, Laine and Puljujärvi and was excited about an outside shot at us getting him at the draft. It made me feel like he thought it was a given that he’d go 3rd and fellow finn Kekäläinen would draft him automatically. I honestly belive he hasn’t been developed well enough or properly. But I also feel he needs to keep his head down and work on things and should have done so with Edmonton until he has some actual value. He is an offensive player and has some shortcomings defensively. Adding to that is the factor that he is a bit cocky and arrogant at times. That can’t be a good thing when you don’t produce and develop like you should. Coming to Finland and play might work out if he can produce and shine like a star, but might also close the door for him to play in the NHL if he struggles.
  13. If that is an excuse, it sure is a lame one. If the numbers you mention are even remotely accurate, I wouldn’t be so proud about it. I’m assuming you are referring to Canada here btw. Without giving it more thought than this here, I’d say that overlooking the problem and negligent attitude towards the issue is why there is such a large number of people using drugs. And if the general sense is that people need to do what they like, then the numbers sure ain’t going down.
  14. I’m really not in the mood to argue on the internet with you on whether I have the right to an opinion. I read it, understood it. You don’t need to teach me when and how I can have an opinion of my own. I don’t support drug use and sure don’t want to pay a doctor or kid flipping burgers who is a drug addict or recreational drug user. I can’t control that as I don’t know what each individual does on their own time. But if I know, I’ll spend my money elsewhere. You have the right to say what you like on his drug abuse all you want and I won’t istruct you on how to change that statement. If you like drugs and condone that, go for it. Go bother someone else.
  15. I personally hope he gets banned for a long time. He isn’t the only one in the NHL usung drugs, but I think that everone that gets caught should be penalized accordingly and not be allowed to play in the NHL. People watching pay for that habbit of his. So once you go down that road you should pay the piper and not be allowed to enjoy that anymore.
  16. There is something in the water here in... Alberta!
  17. Back in the day I was hoping we’d get him somehow. He has a good skillset and I remember him breaking out from behind the net and make plays on the other end in no time (world juniors). He just doesn't seem to make it work at the NHL level. Too bad.
  18. I'm guessing Benning is just winging it and not giving a crap about cap space. He likely has no clue as to how he'll get Boeser signed now and how he'll get the team under the cap to start the season. He is just that bad I promised to stay away for the summer but I just had to come out and look at stuff as I saw the news. Great signing and just what the doctor ordered! I have been nothing but impressed and happy about our signings this summer. I'm excited and energized by all this stuff going on.
  19. Aaaaaand this is where I have to start my summer vacation away from CDC. CDC members, why don’t you try some mindfulness exercises while I’m gone and try relaxing a bit. It’s a long summer and nothing you say or do will chance the outcome. JT, EP, JB, BB, OJ and Jay-Z will all be here when camp starts and all you do is tarnish real Canuck fans reputation in between now and then. Jim Benning is doing a mighty good job and we’ll have a terrific team this fall! Have a real good summer!
  20. Great stuff! Really happy we have Motte back!
  21. Never been a fan of Nazem Kadri or his style of play. But overall I think both teams got some good pieces in that trade. Even if Barrie walks next summer, I still think they got a good guy in Kerfoot. With the group they have in place, I'm sure Barrie will be interested re-signing if the numbers match. In my mind Kadri was expendable in Toronto.
