  1. Can confirm, this kid plays like me. No pressure kid!
  2. Right, because all draft winners and losers are determined 24 hours after the draft.
  3. Regardless what happens at the TDL, we need him to come back. He is a leader, a mentor, and a great community local guy. He and the Sedins are the epitome of what it means to be a Canuck. We need these guys to instill this mindset as Naslund, Morrison, Bertuzzi, and Ohlund before them. And since then, we have made the playoffs a lot more and farther this past decade then we have since our conception.
  4. They won a cup instead
  5. Maybe he's aboard the Tank Train and is riding Vey to a top 3 pick
  6. Make the playoffs, first round loss...
  7. Hamhuis + Vrbata for Hamonic, 3rd
  8. 3-2 Canucks in OT Horvat D. Sedin Hutton Little Wheeler
  9. I feel dirty for doing this. To Detroit: H. Sedin D. Sedin To Vancouver: Detroit 1st pick 2016 Detroit 2nd pick 2016 and 2017 Teemu Pulkinnen Kyle Quincey Justin Abdulkader/Darren Helm Detroit is realistically the only team the Sedins would waive too (Franzen, Zetterberg, Kronwall, Nyquist) Detroit window is rapidly closing (Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall, Franzen, and now Green). I give them a good 2-3 years at actual Cup contention, especially in that conference. The Sedins will give them an amazing 1-2 punch with Datsyuk and Zetterberg. Imagine that PP. They have the depth to move Kyle Quincey (1 year left UFA @ 4.25) with the addition of Green to get cap relief for the Sedins. Abdulkader and Helm play a similar game and with both in the mid 2 million range both UFA's at the end of the year. Got to think Detroit will be willing to part with one of them and sign the other. Vancouver looks like they get the short end of the stick but this is likely the price given the limited ability we have to make trades (NMC) and salary cap costs, IF we were to actually trade the Sedins. I can see Detroit giving up their 1st pick and going for an 'all in' approach given their aging core. It works for them anyways because they draft better players later anyways (see Detroit Roster). Vancouver also gets Pulkinnen who has been absolutely ripping the AHL this last year and looks ready for the big show and could take a 3rd line spot (please no Higgens, Hansen, Jensen) and provides much needed skilled young Left wing depth Quincey fits JB bill where he can play valuable top 4 minutes and be flipped at the deadline for a reasonable 2-3 round pick to a team making a playoff run. Abdulkader/Helm would be a sign or trade @ the deadline situation also provides some cap relief with Kyle Quincey. This kind of deal make sense for both teams, in the assets we can acquire back (up to 1st rounder, 3 2nd rounders, Pulkinen and Helm/Abdulkader and hello Top 3 OA pick) and Detroit gets two 34 year old players for 2 years to make a cup run. We run away from the draft with our cupboards stocked with enough cap space to buy a 1st line (Lucic, Kopitar, Seabrook, Backes, Staal), continue to implement the kids (Horvat, Virtanen, Baerts) with complimentary cheap players like Bonino, Cassels, Shinkaruk, McCann) and I'd we could right this ship after 1 crapshow season.

  11. Didn't know he was still playing
  12. Good price for a vet. He has it all if ya really think about it. Playoff experience (including a cup run), multiple 30 point seasons, fights and hits consistently throughout his career, known mean streak around the NHL (say what you want, but intimidation is still a factor). Even if he doesn't skate particularly well, he does stay relatively well positioned (so long as it's not on the rush) and is a big net presence on defence. He'll slot in nicely on that Ducks team. And our time isn't now anymore and likely won't be while Bieksa is in the NHL. This trade is fair for both sides. He may make questionable trade calls, but we hired Mr. Jim Benning for his drafting, and this is going to be a long term project to make the Canucks successful for years. We've enjoyed a few years of success, which most teams don't even get aside from a select elite (see Chicago). We now need to build a foundation that will continue to be fruitful for hopefully decades (see Detroit).
  13. Somehow, I feel he will be a Norris candidate in Detroit. Detroit does that to defencemen.
  14. remember when we got David Booth and CDC blew up calling GM MG a genius for trading two pending UFA's (Samuelsson and Sturm). We all know how that turned out. Although I must say I feel the return would have been higher at the 2015 draft and in the 2016 deadline. Hopefully it works out, Go Canucks Go
