  1. Jason Garrison so far?

    Garrison can't possibly be a one-year wonder, because he spent two years as Florida's top shutdown defenseman, and that's what we signed him to be. He could score zero goals this year and still be worth his contract; if anyone seriously expected him to score 16, somebody would have offered him in excess of 6 million per.
  2. Attn: Invalid Sources

    Why is hockeyyinsiderr not seen as a credible source? This guy is more credible than anyone else in the rumour biz. People who say that "oh, he's just throwing crap to the wall to see what sticks" are not really interested in rumours, are they? They just want to know what's for sure going to happen. Is it just because he's an anonymous twitter account? I know most mainstream journalists hate these guys because they are making journalists obsolete. It would be nice for the admins to spell out how they arrive at these decisions.
  3. Attn: Invalid Sources

    I propose that the "invalid sources" list, and the concept of an invalid source, be eliminated. I realize the admins/Canucks org. want people to be able to just read the thread titles and know with some reliability what is going on. Kind of like just reading the headlines. I posit that this is neither desirable nor worthwhile.
  4. Attn: Invalid Sources

    If a little birdie told me that Luongo to the Panthers is "99% done," and it doesn't happen, am I a liar, or full of crap, or did the deal fall through? Sometimes things get to 99% done and don't get done.
  5. [Signing] Justin Schultz to Oilers

    What the heck does "perception is reality" mean
  6. Kevin Bieksa you are really...

    If by "percentage" you mean shooting percentage, that only counts shots on goal, not blocked or missed shots. It doesn't really say anything about someone's ability to get shots on net.
  7. Just thought I'd get back you (like you said) now that Kesler has scored 30g in a season, in only 52 games to be exact.

  8. Kevin Bieksa you are really...

    Why does "coach is playing favourites" = conspiracy? Wallstreetamigo is making good points and instead of addressing them you continually defer to the coach. An appeal to authority is not an argument. It is an excuse for not having an argument. Anybody who has watched this team during Vigneault's tenure can tell you he plays favourites more than the average NHL coach.
  9. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    The thread that keeps on giving.
  10. Kevin Bieksa you are really...

    Bieksa would have for all we know, but I guarantee Vigneault wouldn't have let him fight after Ballard left the game and that's the right call.
  11. Kevin Bieksa you are really...

    Two and a half months prior to acquiring Heatley?
  12. Kevin Bieksa you are really...

    This is BS Rey. SJ signed Rob Blake in the summer of 08. Then re-signed him in 09. Then after weeks of speculation that Heatley will be traded to San Jose, the Sharks give us Ehrhoff for two no-name prospects and then go out and get Heatley, having just freed up enough cap space. By moving Ehrhoff. There's no way they do that trade if Heatley doesn't demand a trade and then refuse to go to Edmonton.
  13. Kevin Bieksa you are really...

    9 games, still no points, yadda yadda yadda, just sayin'. edit: I will agree that the Bieksa-Alberts pairing had a good game.
  14. Kevin Bieksa you are really...

    Kesler plays a solid all around game and has good shifts and does more for the team than just score. Bieksa is a total liability whose only saving graces are that he is mean between whistles and supposedly puts up points!
  15. Kevin Bieksa you are really...

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you meant "would have benefited." Bieksa never played an NHL game before the lockout...lol. You're right about his footwork though, he has real trouble with gap control. This was less of an issue when he played with Willie. It's also less of an issue when he is the last man back, but he usually isn't even capable of slowing the play down enough for others to get back. Oh come on, I would rather have almost any of these guys over Bieksa, especially Hjalmarsson, Rivet, Hainsey, Eaton or Ference. You seriously think Hjalmarsson is worse than Bieksa??
