  1. [Official] 2017 Training Camp Thread

    Sutter is slow? You should be a scout...on second thought, better keep your day job
  2. [Official] 2017 Training Camp Thread

    My thoughts exactly. I figured Jake making the team meant he’d actually be playing. Maybe Green plans to swap him and Dorsett in and out? Even then, I’d rather Jake go back to Utica if that’s the case. He needs to be playing every night. Well, having said that, I’m sure he’ll get his chance soon. I’ll trust Green in this.....for awhile
  3. RODIN waived

    Oh CDC. 1/2 the posters, we want young guys on the team. Player gets waived to make way for a young guy. Other 1/2 of CDC: "Wah asset management" PS very unlikely Rodin is claimed by another team. Teams are looking to drop contracts right now, not pick more up, especially a player who hasn't played professionally for most of 2 years, and is coming off 2 knee surgeries
  4. [Signing] Scottie Upshall

    If I had to go out on a limb, I'd probably say B Boeser makes it over the other one. Though Lastname might still come out of nowhere in camp and surprise everyone

    Well to be fair, pre-season is for trying new things. I'm sure he's already seen Granlund with the Sedins
  6. [Official] 2017 Training Camp Thread

    Geez Alf, no offense, but I'm glad you're not making team decisions. I think trading Baer or Granlund to make room for Goldobin would be a huge mistake. At this point I think Goldobin is still a crap shoot. He definitely has the tools to turn into a good player, but not at the expense of Baer or Granny, who are (in my opinion) establishing themselves as core players already.
  7. [PTO] Canucks sign Scottie Upshall to a PTO

    People complain team is too soft. Upshall gets a PTO with team. Same people complain team is too old and slow now, lol. Upshall would be a great addition to the 4th line. I don't understand people complaining about the young guys having to earn a spot on the team. If they have to spend a year on the farm in Utica, so be it. There'll be a lot of more meaningful open spots next year. If you want to see young speedy guys flying around, watch junior.

    It's not always easy to listen to interviews if you're not in Vancouver, as many of us aren't, so notes would be awesome
  9. Benning on 1040 Jun. 22nd

    Ah OK. Admittedly haven't heard the interview, was just going by the summary
  10. Benning on 1040 Jun. 22nd

    Didn't he say there's a possibility of using the 2x 2nd round picks to get another lower 1st round pick. That wouldn't be moving down
  11. Victor de Bonis no longer COO of Aquilini Group

    It's probably a case of wanting to bring someone else in, who they perceive as being able to increase ticket sales during a re-build period
  12. Victor de Bonis no longer COO of Aquilini Group

    Aquilinis will become even more "hands on" owners in reality...very little with day to day operations of the team. Probably just a change up in marketing strategies.
  13. I'm just going to say this. I've followed this team diligently since 1980, when I was 5 years old. Darcy Rota was my first "favourite player" after being traded here from Atlanta. In the 35-36 years since, I've rarely missed a game. So I'm no bandwagoner, and have seen some dismal dismal Canucks teams. This is the first year in my life since following the team, that I've actually stopped watching the games. Now I've given Willie the benefit of the doubt as long as I could. I understand the team is in transition, and there's been injuries, but...when Megna is getting PP1 and top line minutes over Bo, there's a serious problem. As I say, 35+ years of watching, and this is the first time, I've ever stopped watching or caring because of the bland product on the ice, despite some exciting young talent in; Bo, Tram, Goldie, Baertschi, Hutton, Granlund. I've even tried defending Willie, but, his player deployment is just awful. I understand limiting the ice time of young guys, and making them earn it, but they're not being given the ice even after going well and beyond earning it, and that's all on the coach.
  14. Canucks to PURGE all Blue Line balances

    So from an accounting perspective, when season tix were scarce, your deposit would have been a long-term liability on their books. Now that season tickets are available for anyone, they're now re-classed as a short term liability (the tickets are now available for purchase) meaning they have to be off their books at the end of their current accounting period. So that means you buy the tickets now, before the end of their fiscal year (whenever that is, presumably in spring after season is over) and your deposit is applied to the purchase. Or you don't buy them and your deposit lapses, and the liability becomes revenue. It's not "management" trying to screw anyone lol.
  15. Make sure it's a collect call
