  1. [Report] Alexandre Burrows announces retirement

    Burrows....did we really need him?.....You bet your a$$ we did.
  2. [Signing] Canucks re-sign Sven Baertschi

    Vanek is 34, Baertschi is 25. That's potential for a lot more years at the cost of $300000 for 3 years.
  3. Would you touch the Stanley Cup?!

    I have touched the Stanley Cup because my competitive hockey playing days are well over. What I would never do is lift it over my head, that is the privilege of champions.
  4. Based on a number of your comments it seems you are suggesting that Benning and Co. are just building the prospect pool solely on the basis of picking higher in the draft. Although that is definitely helping it would be hard not to agree that the drafting overall and trades have stocked a better prospect pool. For those of us that have been watching this team for 48 years (Only 47 for me..went to my first game in 1971) we are well aware high picks don't mean anything if you don't do a good job of scouting.
  5. Clearly wasn't their vision. They've earned the right to end their careers how they see fit. We're not winning a cup for a few more years.
  6. Virtanen hasn't exactly been a poster boy for leadership so he's not in the same conversation as Bo. So in the event of a "bridge" captain I would say Edler. The Sedins' just announced their retirement so I'm going to go cry into my cereal.
  7. Totally bummed about this. I've enjoyed watching them this season. They've shown they still belong. Heartbreaking. 22 and 33 directly to the rafters.
  8. I read the post but the facts are Bo is a veteran and ready to take the reigns. Plenty of captains have been appointed before they are 23. No need for a "bridge" captain. The names you mention would all be great Assistant captains.
  9. [PGT] New York Islanders vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Clearly I'm not a Doctor. 4 - 6 weeks. Damn.
  10. [PGT] New York Islanders vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Relax. Likely a tail bone bruise.
  11. [PGT] New York Islanders vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Agreed. Likely a tail bone bruise. They suck in the worst way and I've had one from a very similar play. Suck it up and suit up!!!
  12. Brendan Leipsec has 5 more points as a Canuck than Holm will likely have in his NHL career. Benning WIN! lots of energy, plays hard and produces. Even when he hasn't scored he's been noticeable. Bodes well for the future. Hope he can keep it up.
  13. I've been watching since 1971 when my parents moved here from WinterPeg. It's always been a bandwagon team and likely always will be. I used to get so tired of people saying "We've got the greatest fans in the league" or "the fanbase here is so smart, they really know the game". It's complete BS. Many of our fans are hockey imbeciles and their hockey opinions are derived from listening to the morons on TEAM 1040 or reading that drivel from Jason Botchford. Was I fully satisfied with the trade deadline? No. However, it was only because I was hoping someone might overpay for Vanek. Clearly they have seen he's been a Houdini in the playoffs of late and didn't feel he was worth a high pick. And the fan base who have likely never seen Tyler Motte play think even a late round pick would have been better. Clearly they don't understand the draft. This kid has played in the league with two franchises that have been successful with deep rosters for good portions of the last two seasons. Tyler Motte has a clearer shot at being a regular than our 5th round selection at the 2018 draft. Honestly, I'm so tired of the ignorant bandwagon fan base that I have given my tickets away so I don't have to sit among the throng
  14. The Trade Deadline. Deals Done.

    Mr Guardian, I saw our deadline work. Feel free to piss and moan. My apologies for questioning your crystal ball. Cammer
  15. 14 pages predominantly filled with whining. Surprise, Surprise. Philip Holm was 27 and hadn't made the NHL and was free. We moved him for a forward with skill and upside potential. Clearly they feel Holm didn't belong above our current D or necessary for the future. Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if Holm pushed to be dealt. The one interview I saw he seemed quite frustrated about not getting a chance as of yet. With the improvement in Pouliet's game perhaps they felt Holm didn't have a real place in the line-up
