  1. [Discussion] 2019 draft the time is now

    They already are in a rebuild. They've already been shopping around the older vet names like Tanev and Edler, at least from what the rumors have said. Guys like Sutter have been inquired about but he fits a good leadership role on this team and likes being here. Tanev and Edler are great to have around as Stanley Cup finalists for the young guys to be mentored by. You don't want to just get rid of all the vets on the team and try to throw a team full of young guys on the ice. Having somebody like Edler on the team is going to benefit Elias Pettersson as well, considering he came over from Sweden and went through what Pettersson is about to go through. I wouldn't be surprised if he rooms with Edler during the season. The Sedins sticking around for camp and whatever else after that will help as well. It's good to keep competition on the team. You want guys competing for spots and earning them, not just gifting the youth spots in the lineup. That doesn't work out a lot of the time. I'm sure come deadline or earlier, Benning will be looking for picks. No need to trade anybody off right now. Teams will come knocking come the trade deadline and be more desperate for a defenseman like Edler or Tanev, or a two-way guy like Sutter for a playoff run, if a trade like that does indeed happen.

  3. [Signing] Blue Jackets re-sign Ryan Murray

    It is pretty funny. Oilers lack scoring depth outside of McDavid and Draisaitl, and they traded away guys like Taylor Hall, Eberle, and the pick which ended up being Barzal. Of course the Barzal thing wasn't a sure thing, but looking at it now really sucks for them considering it was traded for Griffin Reinhart who plays in the AHL.
  4. Brock Boeser | #6 | RW

    I would say that once our young guns get out of their ELC's and into their big contracts out of them, the Canucks will be a contending team. Lock down Boeser, Pettersson, and Demko and we'll be golden for years. Obviously that's pending Pettersson and Demko make it big in the NHL.
  5. Brock Boeser scores hat trick in first game back

    You can bet after hitting the 29 goal mark in his rookie campaign, he's probably shooting for 40. Getting 29 in your first season definitely brings a lot of confidence out of the gates.
  6. Brock Boeser scores hat trick in first game back

    There's not much to take away from this besides the fact that his wrist shot still looks lethal, if not better than before. You can't really measure his compete level or much of the other things, but he looks good skating out there, making plays, and his shot is deadly. Great to see.
  7. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    So happy for Croatia. I'm not Croatian myself, but know a lot of them and they've been huge, telling me about their players for years and how good they could be in this World Cup. Should be a doozy of a final.
  8. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    I'm aware he's back in. You can't just jump in and out of it though, not if you're fighting. I'm still excited for that fight though. Chubby father against mountain beast. At least that's what it will look like visually, but in reality it will be MMA legend vs. wrestler.
  9. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    Yeah, I definitely expect DC to win against Lesnar. He trains with Cain full time, and Brock's been away from the game for so long.
  10. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    Jon Jones is the GOAT at being his own enemy. I'm so happy for DC though. The guy deserves it. Miocic was a great champion, and I would bet he'll be back though. The Lesnar thing is such a money grab though. The guy is allowed in and out of the USADA pool and now will be in an instant challenge for the title. Obviously it makes sense money-wise, and it's not like I won't be watching it. Man, it'll be interesting to see just how much of a difference that size between him and DC is. He towers over him.
  11. [Signing] Maple Leafs sign Tyler Ennis

    Ennis was a great player for Buffalo for a long time. Not sure what caused him to die off a bit in his final one with Buffalo, then last year in Minnesota. He did have over 20 points in Minny while not being relied upon as much as he was in Buffalo, but he could definitely put up a good one in Toronto. Even still, $650k is a big &^@#ing bargain for Ennis, IMO. I don't know what he was offered, but I feel like he could easily get $2M somewhere else. Maybe he just wants to go to a hockey market? He could sure make things happen out there with guys like Matthews and Tavares; he has the skill.

  13. 2018 Canucks Summer Development Camp

    Watching a lot of these prospect games for the Canucks over the past like 5-10 years.....it's pretty clear how skilled these guys are. We have a lot of guys who can make moves and skate well. There wasn't a ton of guys outshining competition too much in previous years.
  14. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Although I was definitely hoping Archibald would have a bigger role on the team moving forward, the Beagle and Roussel signings were good ones. Good, veteran presences and one of them just won the cup. Kind of clogs are bottom 6 a bit, but I assume there could be another trade or two before the season starts. As long as we don't sign top six guys like Gagner last season to fill in those roles instead of easing in youngsters like Pettersson, Gaudette, etc I'm happy.
