  1. [Rumour] Canadiens interested in Vrbata (Eklund)

    I don't think he'd bring an early 1st, but he might bring a late first round pick as we get closer to the deadline. We might have to flip a 4th or something back the other way with him, but I'd be willing to do that!
  2. Everyone gets so wrapped up in the negative of this instead of looking at the positive! Somebody hit the little weaselly B@stard! All in favor of buying Landeskog a drink next time he's in town, sound off!  
  3. Connor McDavid Injured

    And, Edmonton kills another bright, promising prospect by pushing him too hard, too soon. How many of their first over all picks have had extended injury time in their first year in the league? As much as I hate Edmonton, I hope the kids okay, Would hate to see his career get cut short by dumb decisions.  
  4. Is it time to bring up Shinkaruk ?

    He will get games in Vancouver this year if he proves that he can be consistent. That doesn't mean he needs to continue the same goal pace, but that he can have a consistent effort level in game. We are already starting to see the injury bug bite. Isn't it great that we have guys like Shinkaruk and Gaunce etc, in the minors? Guys who can step in and step up and compete. When was the last time we had this depth? Let's not screw with it, let's enjoy it! Hunter's time will come soon enough!
  5. [Trade] Canucks trade for F Brandon sutter

    So far, 6 games in, this is looking like a pretty good trade. Sutter is 2 goals, 3 assists for 5 points and 5 hits and is running about 20 min a night in ice time. Bonino and Clendening have yet to register a point for Pittsburgh with Clendening only playing 1 game so far. Too early to tell for sure, but I like this change so far! Sutter is adding a lot more grit to the lineup from what I've seen.  
  6. He's Back! Tortorella Hired in Columbus

    Hey, look at that we made a trade for a 2nd without actually making a trade or giving up anything we wanted or had any intention of ever using again! Can we do that again??? Here, I think I've got some belly button lint. If Torts is a 2nd, can we get a 4th for that???
  7. [Trade] Zack Kassian to Canadiens

    Make sure that you're not looking at the wrong number on the back. He's been fine so far, and has been a good mentor to our younger players. Last night, the 4th line may have been our best overall line.
  8. They settled out the contract, but at least they aren't getting off completely from the contract. Will cost them 1.32 million for the next 5 years on cap hit, as per General Fanager.
  9. Markstrom Out At Least 3 Weeks

    And with this news, half of CDC falls on their swords in terror!
  10. Markstrom injured

    Hoping they just sat him with Miller scheduled to start last night and probably on Sat. No reason to risk making it worse.
  11. Upcoming Trade Deadline

    Could we at least get through the first month of the new season before we start really getting into trade deadline stuff? Maybe?? Please???? Can't we just enjoy hockey being back for a few weeks???????
  12. Nikita Tryamkin Talk

    I don't think he would have bothered coming to the draft if he really wanted to just play in Russia. I think he'll be in camp next year, trying to earn a spot.
  13. Kassian involved in early morning car wreck...

    Just as Gillis should have kept anything about Hodgeson quiet. There's no reason for it, shows a lack of class!
  14. Kassian involved in early morning car wreck...

    Professionalism is professionalism! Some managers can rise to that, some can't.
  15. Kassian involved in early morning car wreck...

    So, now we know beyond any doubt, why the team couldn't trade him. Substance abuse issues, work ethic, looks like we were lucky to get anything for him. Good work Benning for removing a problem and for doing it without going into the negativity of having Kassian around. When Hodgeson was traded, Gillis wasn't above making comments about Cody.
