  1. re-signing our 2018 RFAs

    Short term deals for sven and granlund because I don't believe they're part of the future of this team with lind, gaudette, etc being the future. They're just filler players to me right now.
  2. Stealth-Rejig Is Potentially 93% Finito!

    Demoralizing tank win yesterday, jumping ahead of 3 teams! God damn oilers and montreal are trash and keep losing! Ottawa and arizona has been doing us a solid by winning lately, but we failed to capitalize on it yesterday. We still got 4 huge tank games vs arizona and it would be huge if they swept us!
  3. Would A Statement Like The Rangers Make A Difference?

    Yes! The rangers put out a great statement for their fans and something I wished the canucks would do!
  4. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

    You should hope for more of the same next year because jack hughes is the lotto prize next year! Not sure why you expect the canucks to be winning during the rebuilding years. Hop aboard team tank and enjoy the thrill of getting top draft picks and then having them lead our team to a cup in the future! A lot of you would be a lot happier if you joined team tank! No more getting pissed off at crappy games like last night and instead you can enjoy the boeser goal and loss coupled with ottawa winning too!
  5. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Yeah, I remember looking into this draft briefly a couple of years ago and seeing Jake Wise and Joe Veleno as possible top 5 picks. Both have fallen in the rankings since then, but wise seems like he fell off the map and isn't even a 1st rounder now. I'd probably take a flyer on him in the later rounds too.
  6. Stealth-Rejig Is Potentially 93% Finito!

    Oh I never expect players to tank. I just hope to lose every game 5-4 with Boeser scoring a bunch.
  7. Trade Gudbranson and keep Vanek

    Trade both and tanev for futures. Do this rebuild right!
  8. Stealth-Rejig Is Potentially 93% Finito!

    Man, this current run of mediocrity just shows how hard tanking is. Even our run of losing like 11 out of 15 didn't create enough tank separation from the pack to be safe. These last few wins have bunched us up with 5 teams now and we're even further from 3rd last than before thanks to ottawa never winning. 4th last looks like the only realistic goal left, while the worst case would be finishing 8th last. We need to get this tank train back on track, but it's going to be hard now with horvat back!
  9. Yes, bonuses always apply to the current year's cap if there's room. It only goes to next year's cap if you don't have room to fit it on this year's cap. I don't know the canucks cap situation, so don't know if there's room to fit it this year.
  10. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Edmonton Oilers

    You can cheer for Boeser to get points and win the calder! However, other than that cheer for losses and the tank.
  11. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Edmonton Oilers

    I'm not sure why so many people get angry after losses. This was a good tank game with Boeser getting a point and losing a big 4 point game vs the Oilers. This team was never going to be good this year. This is what rebuilding looks like. Don't hate on the team for a lack of talent. Our future is bright with Pettersson, Lind, gaudette, juolevi, etc coming in the future. Hopefully, we can add another top 5 pick to that group this year.
  12. Stealth-Rejig Is Potentially 93% Finito!

    Yeah costly win as we didn't take advantage of the rare Buffalo win the night before. Also bringing us closer to the pack. I want to stay in 3rd last with the outside hope of Buffalo passing us guaranteeing us 5th overall at worst. I'd be happy with any of the projected top 5 right now.
  13. Who Should The Canucks Draft Second Overall

    I'm not on team tank to trade down! If we get 2nd pick, I'm keeping it and drafting BPA! I haven't decided who I want yet, but I'm not in favour of trading out of the top 5.I'll be happy with svech, zadina, boqvuist or tkachuk. After the top 5 there seems to be a dropoff, so I'm not trading out of it to pick a worse player that the added pick probably won't make up for. You should always draft BPA in the early rounds and not for need. The islanders in 2012 drafted all D the entire draft and none of those 7 dmen have panned out. That's the danger of drafting for need instead of BPA.
  14. No panic here! We've been on a great tank run that will give us another great piece for out future!
  15. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Jeff Marek's draft rankings. Lowest I've seen Hughes at 16th. http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/sportsnets-2018-nhl-draft-prospect-rankings-january/ 1. Rasmus Dahlin, D, 6-foot-2, 183 pounds (Frolunda, SHL): After the WJC there is zero doubt who the top draft pick should be in June. Dahlin has everything you want in a defenceman in 2018. Can help turn a franchise around. 2. Andrei Svechnikov, RW, 6-foot-2, 187 pounds (Barrie Colts, OHL): Didn’t get as much ice time at the WJC as many scouts would have liked, but his skills are undeniable. 3. Filip Zadina, RW, 6-foot-1, 192 pounds (Halifax Mooseheads, QMJHL): Zadina had a great tournament in Buffalo with seven goals and eight points. Was a threat every time he was on the ice. 4. Brady Tkachuk, LW, 6-foot-3, 196 pounds (Boston University, NCAA): Raised his stock immensely for those who doubted him due to a sluggish start at BU. 5. Adam Boqvist, D, 5-foot-11, 170 pounds (Almtuna, Allsvenskan): Loaded with talent. As one NHL scout recently told me “there’s a lot of Karlsson in him.” 6. Noah Dobson, D, 6-foot-3, 179 pounds (Acadie-Bathurst Titan, QMJHL): Scouts go out of their way to make sure they see Dobson. This season’s big riser. 7. Rasmus Kupari, C, 6-foot-1, 183 pounds (Hermes, Mestis Finland): Would have been nice to see more of him at the WJC, but his skill very much keeps him in the top 10 mix. 8. Oliver Wahlstrom, RW, 6-foot-1, 205 pounds (USNDTP): Has outstanding skill and is an effective player with a high hockey IQ. 9. Bode Wilde, D, 6-foot-2, 197 pounds (USNTDP): Big, strong, can move his feet and competes hard. Stands guys up in the neutral and defensive zone and hits hard. Moves pucks quickly to the best option. Has a bomb of a shot. 10. Evan Bouchard, D, 6-foot-2, 193 pounds (London Knights, OHL): A smart player who never panics and has a cannon from the point. With his London Knights in rebuild mode it will be challenging for Bouchard to stand out on a weaker squad, but make no mistake, he is legit. 11. Barrett Hayton, C, 6-foot-1, 185 pounds (Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, OHL) 12. Joel Farabee, LW, 6-foot, 164 pounds (USNTDP) 13. Jared McIsaac, D, 6-foot-1, 195 pounds (Halifax Mooseheads, QMJHL) 14. Ty Smith, D, 5-foot-11, 176 pounds (Spokane Chiefs, WHL) 15. Joe Veleno, C, 6-foot-1, 195 pounds (Drummondville Voltigeurs) 16. Quinn Hughes, D, 5-foot-10, 174 pounds (U of Michigan, NCAA) 17. Jet Woo, D, 5-foot-11, 205 pounds (Moose Jaw Warriors, WHL) 18. Grigori Denisenko, LW, 5-foot-11, 175 pounds (Yaroslavl, MHL) 19. Jesperi Kotkaniemi, C, 6-foot-2, 190 pounds (Assat, Liiga) 20. Benoit-Olivier Groulx, C, 6-foot-1, 192 pounds (Halifax Mooseheads, QMJHL) 21. Isac Lundestrom, C/LW, 6-foot-1, 185 pounds (Lulea, SHL) 22. Rasmus Sandin, D, 5 foot-11, 190 pounds (Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, OHL) 23. Jack McBain, C, 6-foot-3, 196 pounds (Toronto Junior Canadiens, OJHL) 24. Alexander Khovanov, C, 5-foot-11, 179 pounds (Moncton Wildcats, QMJHL) 25. Ryan McLeod, C, 6-foot-2, 200 pounds (Mississauga Steelheads, OHL) 26. Serron Noel, RW, 6-foot-5, 201 pounds (Oshawa Generals, OHL) 27. Ryan Merkley, D, 5-foot-11, 170 pounds (Guelph Storm, OHL) 28. Jacob Olofsson, C, 6-foot-1, 192 pounds (Timra, Allsvenskan) 29. Calen Addison, D, 5-foot-10, 179 pounds (Lethbridge Hurricanes, WHL) 30. Mattias Samuelsson, D, 6-foot-4, 217 pounds (USNTDP) 31. Akil Thomas, C, 5-foot-11, 170 pounds (Niagara Ice Dogs, OHL)
