  1. I understand and appreciate your point of view, and I agree with you. However, the reports are that he was not physically distancing himself. That is the only issue here.
  2. Very well said. This isn’t a lifestyle issue, it is a physical distancing issue. Hopefully, no one at the club was carrying the virus, and this can be used as a learning experience for Jake.
  3. Unless the issue is that he exposed himself to Covid while at the nightclub. He could show up to camp in shape, yet utwittingly wipe the entire team out, and possibly put an end to the playoffs.
  4. Perhaps. He’s definitely outspoken, and has had his share of demons and public meltdowns, but on the ice, he was great. I’d take Fleury in his prime over Turgeon any day.
  5. https://www.tsn.ca/vancouver-canucks-gm-jim-benning-j-t-miller-pick-depends-on-play-in-result-1.1480176 Benning: Miller pick depends on play-in result Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning said Wednesday it is his understanding that the result of the best-of-five round will determine whether the team's first-round pick transfers to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Canucks general manager Jim Benning said Wednesday it is his understanding that the result of Vancouver's best-of-five round will determine whether the team's first-round pick transfers to the Tampa Bay Lightning. See Farhan Lalji's other Tweets The Canucks traded a conditional first-round pick to the Lightning last summer - along with a third-round pick and goaltender Marek Mazanec - in return for J.T. Miller, with the pick transferring this year if the Canucks made the playoffs and the Lightning receiving Vancouver's 2021 first-round pick if they did not. Under the NHL's Return to Play format announced Tuesday, the Canucks will face the Minnesota Wild to determine which team advances to the 16-team playoff field. In 69 game with the Canucks this season, Miller posted a career-high 27 goals and 72 points.
  6. Obviously, this really depends on the dollars and term that these players are asking. Assuming that they will get paid at fair market value, I agree that only 2 of the 3 can be signed. Tough decisions will need to be made. My feeling is they will sign Marksrom and Toffoli, and let Tanev walk, hopefully trading his rights for a pick prior to July 1. I also have a feeling that Boeser could become a trade chip to bring in a top 2-4 dman, should they choose not to resign Tanev. All of this will change if there are Covid compliance buy outs, or if any or all of these UFA's decide to test the market.
  7. A little premature to determine who will be the better player. Obviously, right now, Hughes is looking like the better player, but they haven't even finished their rookie season yet. Remember Vladimir Malakhov? He outperformed all other rookie defensemen in his rookie year as well, including Scott Neidermayer. Who would you say was the better defensemen? I am a huge Hughes fan, but that doesn't mean that Dahlin, or Makar, won't end up having better careers, or turn out to be better rear guards.
  8. I'm fairly certain I heard on TSN 1040 around noon that they were putting Oscar Fantenburg on IR. No need to send anyone to the minors if this is the case.
  9. The real question is, where was Vintage on this one?
