  1. .@DarrenDreger: "No one I trust as a good enough source is willing to say Benning is in trouble. I've heard rumblings, but I don't know that it's coming from anywhere trustworthy. Until we do more research, and get legitimate intel back, I think it's a little sketchy at this point" More noise to be ingored from the rumour spreading dramatic media. There is no reason Bennings job wouldn't be secure after stealing Pettersson @ #5 Calder trophy, another steal with Leivo, moving Guddy out, and improving on last years numbers without the Sedins, massive improvement in Markstrom while sustaining multiple injuries again.
  2. No they didn't but virtually every game was an elimination game, so all the odds were against them for 7 games. the chances the Canucks do this is slim to none, but a nice story that a Cinderella finish is possible.
  3. Kamloops Blazers were 7 points back of the final playoff spot in the WHL with 7 games remaining They went 6-0-1 without their # 1 goalie and had a 16YO in net for the the pressure packed tie break game last night with Kelowna, won and are in the show! Canucks are 6 points back with 9 games remaining, so apparently miracles can happen?!

    Would rather be a playoff contender, but seeing how Brisebois, Sautner, and even Schenn show what they have on D is critical for our summer decisions. Poo being out for this number of games just shows where the Canucks are with his future. Sautner especially can step in nicely as a 6-7 D man next year to cover injuries. 2019 depth Edler - Tanev Hutton - Stecher Hughes- Stralman Sautner- Biega Joulevi/ Brisebois - Schenn / Woo
  5. Dr Green does not concur, and doesn't sign the pay cheques so 6 mil or 1 mil, it just doesn't matter to him. Hopefully the tough love makes him, and doesn't break him.
  6. GCG! I hope the light bulb fires up for Goldy when he gets back in the lineup as we really need his talent to compliment our top 6 but he simply need to be harder to play against. 6.7% shooting percent playing in the top 6 most of the season won't cut it either, so switch out your mouth piece Goldy and make the next one your statement game!
  7. He has improved his +/- this year from last so far which shows he's matured that extra year. The stat that is concerning is his give away stats. although this season is better than last he's still has one of the worst differentials there. With the probable Edler and Hutton extensions, Hughes, Juolevi, Sautner, Breezy and now Teves on the left side.. its hard to see him getting re-upped for another year.

    Agree Juolevi at best will need 20 games in Utica and even than Sautner could be first call up He has the top 4 skills but with slow dev, and injuries he's pushed down the scale

    We have a number of players to resign but that being done would 7m / year over 5 years do it for Myers?.. i don't know. That would leave us with about 4M in space, with Brock taking 6M-6.5M Pouliot and Schaller, Granny would need to go, plus dropping Spooner to the minors unloading Eriksson is nearly impossible so keeping him until Petey's and Hughes contracts comes up may be the only option. IMO Same with Sutter, difficult to move and if we do and we have injuries at the centre position we dont have the depth to cover it Edler - Myers Hughes - Tanev Hutton- Stecher Joulevi/Sautner- Biega - AKA Bobby Orr

    or TDL at the very latest, making it crucial to sign a decent RD like Myers, or Stralman. Even a strong stay at home guy since the left side should provide most of the offense.

    Great game by Edler, Stecher, Gaud, Marky, Leivo, Bo We need to resign Eddie to a 3 year deal 5.5M about if we want to keep him. He's the stabilizer on that D long term. Sign Hutton to about 3.5M , Enter Hughes as a 3rd LD to start, and must sign a Top 4 RD this summer to stabilize the other side. Edler - Stecher Hutton- UFA RD Hughes- Tanev - Biega/ Schenn ( as Tanev will get hurt) Joulevei/ Sautner as LD Injury replacements Some depth there...

    Leafs have some great talent but their contract situation is the Cap from H@ll next year. Like it
