  1. He was a star when he played in Dallas, now he is AHL caliber and is just collecting his paycheque in Vancouver. His contract in Vancouver is compensating for the time he played great in Dallas and wasn't paid much. Its just too bad it had to be Vancouver that had to pay him and not some other team.
  2. People forget that security guards are there just to have some presence and make people feel secure. They aren't really trained to do what a S.W.A.T team does and they probably shot their gun as many times as I have in their lifetime and I don't actually have a gun. I'd probably would not enter the school either if I were him, because I would probably be another stat in a country where mass shootings are routine now.

    What is Yute? I don't get that?

    I'd rather have Dahlin though. Imagine our defense if Tryamkin also comes back to our team Dahlin-Tanev Tryamkin-Joulevi Edler-Gudbranson That D would look pretty big and physical all of a sudden.
  5. Jussi Jokinen is done. He is just a cap dump and he won't play for the Canucks or in the NHL for that matter. If no team picked him up on the waivers, why would he be on our 4th line? The Canucks didn't even pick him when he was on waivers.

    oh really? In that case they will expose him but not sure if Seattle will bite with that contract of his. A $6 million penalty killer is not worth it for any team. They would take Tyler Motte or Nick Dowd over him in a heart beat.

    we have Demko and Dipietro so there are no worries there. Benning needs to get rid of both of them after we finish the rebuild.
  8. [PGT] New York Rangers vs. Vancouver Canucks

    We can't expose him to expansion because of the stupid NTC that Benning gave out like a candy. So they will lose a spot protecting Eriksson's ass instead of someone who is more valuable. The only option might be a forced retirement which would get rid of his cap completely. Maybe the Sedins can convince him to quit hockey with them and they live happily ever after in Sweden.

    Not at this point, he is not. On a team where Gagner and Eriksson get a combined 9 million for being useless, Baertschi would not be expendable. We have too many dead weights on the team not producing to get rid of Baertschi who plays on our top 6.

    I know, but the eastern voters will mainly look at points and goals. And from the looks of it, Barzal is leading in the Calder voting.
  11. [PGT] New York Rangers vs. Vancouver Canucks

    They value points more, but if Boeser puts up 45 to 50 goals, there is no doubt that they will give the calder to Boeser. A 50 goal rookie forward is more impressive than a 80+ point forward in my mind.
  12. [PGT] New York Rangers vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Positives for tonight is Leipsic's play and the fact he is a rookie. 15 points for 45 games played is not too shabby and I think he will get more points and put up some goals. He is at this point higher in the depth chart than Virtanen in my mind. Until Virtanen starts to play better defensively, and put up more point I would rate Leipsic higher than him. Leipsic also can play good defense and he makes plays at high speed which Virtanen still hasn't figured out yet. Also surprised by the defensive play of Tyler Motte. Maybe Benning is on to something with those two acquisitions. Now hoping he lands the big fish on draft day.
  13. [PGT] New York Rangers vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Barzal will win it, no matter how much I would love Boeser to win it. He has 67 points now and Boeser is more than 10 points back at 54 points. If Barzal gets 80+ points which is a given at this point, Boeser would need to have 40+ goals to top that. There is no way he will catch Barzal in points, so his only hope is keep scoring til the end of the season for any chance of winning the calder.

    Its time to restructure the team for next year. Benning really needs to get rid of the dead weights instead of re-signing them like he did with gudbranson. Eriksson and Gagner really shouldn't be on this team and I hope Benning gets rid of them somehow. Leipsic-Horvat-Boeser Baertschi-Gaudette-Petterson (if he makes it) Goldobin-Sutter-Virtanen Mott-Gaunce/Dowd-Archibald Benning should not sign the Sedins, we don't have room for them next year. I didn't even put in Eriksson and Gagner to the above lineup, nevermind Joikenin who is on the farm and some of the prospects that I left out which could possibly make it like Dahlen, Gadjovic and even Lind. Also we could possibly land a top end forward if Benning doesn't draft a D in the top 10 so there would possibly be a huge log jam at the forward position.

    should start him next year, he will destroy the Canucks tank plans if he starts now. Let the two swiss cheese goalies play for this season.
