  1. Baertschi was a great pick-up. The guy oozes skill, and sometimes you can see flashes of it. And you gotta remember, Baertschi only had a slow start since Horvat was struggling at the beginning of the year.
  2. As soon as he acquired Granlund, I became concerned about McCann aswell. However, I believe next season he would be eligible to play in Utica? (He turns 20 in May) If so, I think he should spend a full season down there centering one of their top 2 lines. I think that will do more for his development than centering our 4th line.
  3. OP, I understand the point you are trying to make... But management has made it clear that only the Sedins are untouchable. And that is fine with me. We are having a hard time moving our older players due to bad contracts by Gillis. This is more of a reflection of ownership not wanted to sacrifice playoff revenue.
  4. Good find bro. Sucks for season ticket holders. That just means the building will be more empty. I got a call to purchase season tickets but deciding not too. Been on the list for like 8 years. Tired of ownership mortgaging the future for short term gains.
  5. Happy for Ladd. Good ol' Maple Ridge boy.
  6. All eyes on Granlund tonight. Poor guy. I've come to accept the trade though. I want to see Granlund succeed here!
  7. We need to be trading for Canadians, not Europeans.
  8. Stop hoping for Drouin. If Yzerman was willing to do the deal for Granlund+ he would have made that deal directly with Calgary. This was a desperation move to solidify our Centre position to squeak into the playoffs this year. We essentially traded Shinkaruk for a rental player. Because I don't see how Granlund fits in our lineup once Sutter is healthy. His game isn't gritty enough to be a 4C. RIP Canucks.
  9. No matter how management spins this, this was in fact a desperation move to get into the playoffs. Expect to see more of these trades over the next few days.
  10. There are no more trades coming. They are trying to squeak into the playoffs and need to replace Sutter on the 3rd line. This trade is a disgrace. Once Sutter is healthy, Granlund has no spot on this team.
  11. Hansen is the type of player you KEEP during a rebuild due to his reasonable contract. I would love to see Hamhuis resigned during the summer as he is a great role model for our younger D-men. We need to cut the dead weight like Vrbata, Dorsett, Burrows, Higgins, and Prust. None of those players are fetching a 1st round pick this year, so load up on 2nd and 3rd round picks and let our scouts have some fun on draft day. We need to free up roster spots so guys like Vey, McCann and Virtanen can all play every night. Aswell as leave some room for Shinkaruk and Gaunce next year. Canucks fans need to accept the fact that we won't be "fleecing" anyone on trades this year, the opposite may happen, but it needs to be done.
  12. Shink could be a 30-goal scorer in this league. If they trade him for "help" this season then I'm just gonna stop watching.
  13. Don't feel bad for them, they had there chance in 2011 and couldn't get the job done. Most NHLers don't even get that.
  14. Why is everyone complaining? The goal from the onset of this season was a top 3 pick. Tonight was another step in the right direction. If you can't bare to watch them tank, then don't watch the games. But this MUST be done.
