  1. An Intelligent Debate on Ancient Alien Theory

    Not a Trump fan but would really like it if he let the cat out of the bag about what the US government knows. He's not shy about anything else, so why not.
  2. It took a while for them to accept the donation, which was expected, but it's now done.
  3. Emergency response test

    I'm with Fido and got nothin.
  4. [Rumor] Jonathan Tavares to test UFA

    NHL numbers has us at around $54M, so if the cap goes up to $80M, that's $26M, but they still list Dorsett, with us getting back that $2.5M, so puts us at $28.5M available. We have some young players to sign including the new deal for Brock but we could make a pretty good offer to JT and sign a D-man. In my mind it all depends on if JT has heard all the buzz about the young talent we have coming to add to what we already have and the ability of his buddy Gagne to sell him on Vancouver. Add JT to Bo, Brock, Jake, Goldy, EP, JD and company and were heading toward 3 high octane lines with Sutter to anchor the heavy lifting shut down line. There is something there to sell.
  5. Press conference today at 10am pst to announce Peters as new coach in Calgary. https://www.tsn.ca/flames-to-make-coaching-announcement-1.1065110
  6. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    We still need to sign him or has he signed already??
  7. Ben Hutton | #27 | D

    Pouliot was tied for second among our D in production, with 22 points, he played 10 more games than Hutton, who had 6 points. He needs to work on his defence but there were some good signs there and I agree that fitness and commitment could be the difference and his upside could be very good, enough to keep him in the NHL. I'm just not sure that Hutton does have the same upside, if he proves me wrong then great, but I also think we may end up with some better options between now and the start of next season.
  8. [Discussion] Canucks 2018-19 blueline

    I would be all in for signing a real offensive d-man like Green just to get things kick started, as long as it is within reason. We have to start getting more offense from the blueline and need someone to lead the charge. Beyond that I would go for trading Tanev and, if there's a buyer, Hutton also, just to give it a shake up. Last year our defense gave us over 110 points, when the Nashville defense produce over 200 points.
  9. Do you think Burke might want AV?? Of course the answer is, yes!! Although I think AV would be a perfect fit with the Caps.
  10. So last night Vanek had a goal and an assist, plus I believe he was standing right in front of the net on the goal that tied the game, even though he didn't get a point, good on him.
  11. Re-Signing RFAs and UFAs

    The way he's playing right now I'd much rather have Cassels next year, in Dowds' spot. He's the forgotten man who needs to be unforgotten.
  12. You are correct, this team is not set up to be without them. One more year for them to play with EP and JD would have been ideal, given that both players are thought to be ready to make the step into the league.
  13. Their presence will actually aid development not hinder it and with the number of injuries we sustain every year having the depth will be a good thing.
