  1. Who does Burkie have in his rolodex this time... AV, Crawford, Wilson...
  2. Erik Karlsson's son passes away

    I remember when this happened to Jovo while he was here in Vancouver. He opened up about it publicly to help with his healing.
  3. Erik Karlsson's son passes away

    The @Senators announce very sad news about the loss of @ErikKarlsson65's unborn son. Karlsson will not play tonight:

    Ah. Sorry, I misunderstood you there. You're right. Many won't agree with you, but the ones that do are probably goalies!

    A shot that hits the post or crossbar is not a shot on goal. Give this a read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shot_on_goal_(ice_hockey)
  6. All time Czech, Russian and Finnish Canucks

    Haha. No, I don't do a ton of research before I post, but I do try not to assume too much. Nedved was a consensus 1st or 2nd overall pick, and the Canucks were stoked when Quebec drafted Owen Nolan 1st overall. Obviously, Jagr had a better career than Nedved, but I also believe it was a huge advantage for him to play with Mario Lemiuex in his formative years. I'm sure Jagr would still have become a more dominant player, but imagine Nedved's numbers had he been drafted by Pittsburgh. Hell, even Rob Brown had over 100 points playing with Lemieux.
  7. All time Czech, Russian and Finnish Canucks

    As mentioned, Jagr wasn't expected to be available for many years and Nedved had already defected. The Canucks drafted Pavel Bure in similar fashion. Had the rest of the league know he was available, Bure would have been a top pick. BTW, this draft was held in Vancouver, and the fans blew the roof of with excitement when Nedved was selected. I guess the real question is, how little research did you do before posting?
  8. I fail to see the downside of this trade.
  9. Obviously they felt he might have been picked up by Vegas or Colorado. Not much to give up anyhow. At worst, it is a swap of 2 fringe NHL dmen, and a gamble on the 4th rounder. Worth the risk.
  10. Name That Canuck!

    Sven Butenschon?
  11. Right you are, although I seem to remember him having a preseason tryout with the Canucks.
  12. Yeah, but he's nuts. In a bar fight, nuts usually beats tough.

  14. +1. Thanks for clearing that up. Makes more sense now.
  15. The team does need to use one of it's protected spots on Edler because he does have a NTC. (Edit) /nevermind - you're correct.
