  1. Article seems pretty accurate, including Edler still being our best puck-moving D-man. The Edler hate on the CDC is a joke. Most of the rest of the league still seems him as our best D-man. I'll agree that his consistency level can be super frustrating as can his wavering confidence (Tortorella time). Still, he is considered our best D-man by most around the league. He never should have been considered elite or Norris-worthy by the media and Canuck fanboys.
  2. I'm a Canucks fan since 1971. Not a Sabres fan.So don't get your knickers in a twist when I say your Sabres trade ideas are ludicrous. First, why do we want Evander Kane? Million dollar skills , 5-cent brain. Second, the first offer you made and the second offer for Kane both would not occur. Buffalo will be looking to get back some of the level of assets they used to get him. Loads of people have already told you why neither idea you had would work. No need for me to pile on. The Yakupov trade in my opinion isn't a bad idea. However, I think we would be overpaying for a player that reputedly has a poor work ethic. Oilers fans would likely tell you this would be a huge underpayment because they still think this guy has #1 draft pick potential. Maybe, but I don't see it.
  3. This. There is no real analysis other than his feelings. Garbage article. Potential to be true? Sure. I'll again say, there is no difference between a rebuild and a retool. Teams are constantly trying to rebuild themselves via draft, prospect development, free agency and trades. Rebuild? Retool? Semantics. It's all the same but sure allows writers to put a spin on it so they can whip up the "chicken Little" fans into a frenzy. Show me an organization that isn't shooting for the playoffs every year and you'll be showing me perennial losers. I won't pay the $11,000 my tickets cost me each year to watch a team "tanking" for draft picks. The 'tank' fans need to keep their hockey fantasies on their PS4
  4. Fair question. I think the answer is both. You need a top 20 scorer and then tremendous depth with balanced scoring. A top 10 offensive D-man with some shutdown guys and at least one top-end goalie are pretty necessary as well.
  5. Million dollar skills. 5-cent head. No thanks. Can we stop talking about this d-bag.
  6. When you remember spilling into the streets with pots and pans when the Canucks finally won a game against Montreal in the 1975 Playoffs.
  7. Kid has some good hockey bloodlines. D prospects aren't a bad thing. No harm, no foul.
  8. Every time I see teams lose their minds bidding for a college star I remember the money Detroit threw at Ray Staszak. The first million dollar college free agent. Played a whopping four games in the NHL. Buyer beware. I also just don't like this guy snubbed the team that drafted him.
  9. How so? He's done a two-year stint in the AHL before deciding to play in his home country.. Never seen or heard anything of him expecting to be gifted a spot. However, if he isn't going to play in the NHL he'd prefer to play in the SEL If he hadn't already experienced the AHL bus rides I'd maybe agree with you.
  10. He's already done AHL time with the Chicago Wolves so he's played on smaller rinks. Shouldn't be an issue
  11. Pretty unnecessary comment. Homophobic by chance?
  12. Did you watch this chump mail it in last year, become a cancer in the room and a distraction? Seriously wish I could f-bomb this....worth the suspension.
  13. Virtanen couldn't play in Utica last year. He was still junior-aged and would have had to be returned to the Calgary Hitmen if he didn't play in Vancouver. There isn't a chance in hell he starts or goes to Utica this year unless it is for conditioning after an injury. They want him to develop but want that development here in Vancouver.
  14. Still puzzled by Chychrun's fall but lots of teams passed so there must have been something they were seeing.
