  1. 1st overall pick (Discussion)

    I just want to know how we would know at the trade deadline that we have the first overall pick when the draft lottery takes place later.
  2. NHL 19 Thread

    Those are good tips. I think I mentioned before, I play (almost) every game, so I just finished my first season. In a weird way it was disappointing because I already won the President's Trophy and Stanley Cup with close to the current Canucks roster. I had shed a few vets (Del Zotto & Sutter) for picks and swapped Edler for Myers. Other than that, the roster was pretty close to the same. The problem is, what do I do for an encore? Still, I am going to use your tips and try to build a dynasty. On to Season 2!
  3. NHL 19 Thread

    It's that time of year. The trailer is out for NHL19. So before people start complaining that it's just a roster update, they aren't going to buy it, etc... I can't wait. I only ever play Franchise / Be A GM mode and I look forward to this every year. Available Sept. 14th.
  4. [Discussion] Karlsson FA

    This is CDC. It's what we do. There is a 275 page thread on a guy that chose to go back to Russia and play in the KHL. Karlsson hasn't signed. He is an unrestricted free-agent at the end of this year.
  5. [Discussion] Karlsson FA

    Same here. That's why I worry about long term deals. Those injuries may already be catching up with him. 2015-16 82 pts 2016-17 71 pts 2017-18 62 pts 2018-19 on pace for 48 pts
  6. [Discussion] Karlsson FA

    And sometimes it's the media needing something to keep viewers / listeners / readers engaged 24 hours a day when there's not enough news to actually fill the time. If it were a short term, Sundin-like deal I would totally agree. I just worry that he's going to be looking for a deal that would become an albatross over the years of the deal. I totally agree with your last line, but I also look at Woo being close behind them as well.
  7. [Discussion] Karlsson FA

    Agreed. But I think it's one of those "where there's smoke, there's fire" kind of things. It seems fairly plausible.
  8. [Discussion] Karlsson FA

    I think I got it right. It was a 10 team no-trade list.
  9. [Discussion] Karlsson FA

    Sure, but I don't think Karlsson would love to see Karlsson in a Canucks uniform. It was never confirmed, but at the time there was lots of media speculation that most of Canada was on that list. It's funny, in the last Karlsson thread people jumped on me for saying 'speculated' as they claimed it was fact. I won't claim it as a fact as I have no source to back it up. But it remains a solid possibility that it is true and that EK is only interested in contending teams.
  10. [Discussion] Karlsson FA

    I have said this before in similar threads. Stay the course. This team is still a few years away from really competing. Bringing on a high priced, long term FA now will only handcuff the team from signing their own players down the road, and likely not have the returns you are hoping for. You can get much cheaper guys to be mentors. Besides, it has been reported that Karlsson included the Canucks on his 10 team no trade list. Why would he turn around and sign here as a free agent? It's more likely that he will sign with a contender.
  11. They're waiting to see if Dorion or Bergevin become available.
  12. Hitch? Considering the coaches available, and that I thought he was retired, I did not see that coming.
  13. 5 - 3 Ducks 15 Blocked shots
  14. Damn, that Trockeck injury is nasty.  Legs are not supposed to bend like that.

      A fan had been administered CPR in the arena right before that. Pretty awful night.

      I watched the Joe Theismann injury live when it happened 33 years ago and I still can't watch the highlights of it to this day. Now in two days I've had to watch this and the Alex Smith injury. Ugh.

  15. NHL 19 Thread

    I wish I had read this advice before I did my draft today. :D Oh well, next season.
  16. OFFICAL Bruce boudreau-a legacy of failure thread

    Speaking of a legacy of failure.
  17. Another goalie goal last night...

      Would we be even hearing about this if he wasn't a Leafs prospect? ;)

  18. I bet Karlsson gets better offers than that. I have no idea how you can predict drafting a certain player when the draft lottery is still many months away. If done correctly, the rebuild is never truly complete. There should always be prospects in the pipeline.

      Gonna wait for his unplugged tour.

      Al's version of an unplugged tour (aka Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour) was last year.

      Ooh darn, missed it! :^)

  20. Time for some new blood soon?

    One reason to consider is roster limits. You can't always bring up players without sending others down, and many of the players on the big club's roster require waivers to go to the farm. Another reason is to not fall into the trap Edmonton did. If you just throw all the kids to the wolves, bad things happen. Have patience. It may take a year or two, but I am sure they will bring these kids up when they are good and ready.

  22. That's awesome. The only goal I ever scored as a goalie was at one of those mini 3-on-3 rinks.
