  1. How young do you think Megna is? He's 27 now. Not old, but I wouldn't peg him as one of the young guys. He's been a career ahler and the canucks are his 3rd NHL team. I think Megna is just a filler player right now and won't be part of the canucks future once all the younger prospects start getting in the lineup over the next few years.
  2. Gary Valk is such a canucks shill. Never hear him criticize them and there's ton of valid criticism against Willie.
  3. I didn't know sportsnet had radio stations. I haven't listened to a game on the radio since all games started being televised. I do listen to clips of guests like Ferraro, Mckenzie, lebrun, etc through the SoundCloud app though.
  4. Retiring the jersey is a bit much, but he should definitely be in the ring of honour! One of the all time great canucks! Going to miss Burrows and will always remember him as being one of the most classy and nicest canuck off the ice.
  5. Great thread, but the anti-tankers will never admit they were wrong! The bye week was a beautiful time for the canucks because it allowed the canucks to fall out of the playoffs race and finally force Benning to sell. I'll give credit where credit is due because Benning made some good trades with burrows/hansen and I didn't think he had it in him! You anti tankers are fooling yourselves though if you thought he was actually rebuilding before and not re-tooling. Signing louie wasn't a rebuilding move. It was a compete for the playoffs now move. They tried for the playoffs the last 2 years and it's looking like back to back 28th place finishes while doing that. Benning shouldn't get credit for that because it wasn't the result of his grand rebuilding plan, but the result of him failing spectacularly while trying to make the playoffs. Don't confuse the end result with the process, which I've seen a lot of anti tankers do. Just remember there's no quick fix! There will be more pain and we have to keep this rebuilding going. The 2018 draft is supposed to be better than this year's with more top end talent, so another top 5 pick next year will be another great step to this rebuild! I'm already falling for Dahlin!
  6. I want Nico or Patrick! Biggest fear though is Benning will pass on Nico if he's available. I'd only be ok with passing on nico if it was for patrick. If we pick 2-5 and nico is there, we should take him!
  7. No one touching kadri or matthews in the toronto rematch said it all too. The gudbranson/martin fight should have been the bare minimum in payback we should have seen, but instead it was the only thing we got! That was a really disappointing response from the canucks that game. I expected to see kadri on his ass at least once!
  8. I'm hoping for Patrick or Nico Hischier . Don't need another dman, since we're getting Rasmus Dahlin in the 2018 draft.
  9. It's a good thing he's not on the team, but paid to write about them. So sick of cdc people only wanting to read homer articles that only praises the team and never criticizes them. If the media doesn't write only good things about the canucks, then cdc people attack them trump style. A lot of cdc people are so thin skinned when it comes to criticizing the canucks.
  10. Surprising article from Imac, since he's the biggest homer and management cheerleader in the media here.
  11. It's not an ideal year to tank with a weak draft, but a top 3-5 pick would still help our future. Now, next year's draft is supposed to be a lot better with franchise players in it. That will be an exciting tank year.
  12. Can someone please find Jake's stuff?!! It's so elusive, even he doesn't know where it is!
  13. I just saw button's list. He took 13 dmen. I was thinking 9 dmen, so I can see sbisa taken if they take 13 dmen. I'd be thrilled if Vegas takes that contract from us.
  14. Not sure why people think vegas would take sbisa. They can find 9 other better dmen in the draft.
