  1. 2016-2017 Opening Night Roster

    Sedin-Sedin-Sutter Baerstchi-Horvat-Eriksson Burrows-Granlund-Hansen Etem-Gaunce-Dorsett/Rodin I would like to see Sutter with the Sedins and have Eriksson balance out the second line. Wouldn't want Eriksson to go all "Vrbata" on us though as he was probably promised time with the twins. Maybe move him up for the power play?
  2. I am happy this is over. Good luck Edmonton on two fronts. Keeping under the cap in two years and not exposing anyone to the expansion draft.
  3. I am willing to bet that the Lucic/Oilers pre-agreement to sign is true. No way they would trade Hall without securing a left winger to replace Hall first? hmmmm..... Maybe I am just hoping, I really don't want to see Lucic sign with Van. Play all the kids this year and unload vets at the deadline.
  4. I would like to see a round robin style tournament at the end of the regular season involving all the teams that do not make the playoffs. The winner gets the 1st overall draft pick, 2nd place gets the 2nd pick, etc.. The owners would love the extra revenue and the fans would have something to cheer for in April. This would stop the tank and get non-playoff teams fans excited at the end of the year. Torontos tank this year was obvious...no different then Buffalos the year before etc.
  5. Olli Juolevi | D

    Initially I was a little dumbfounded by this pick but that has changed over the course of the last few hours. I think most people, myself included, wanted to see an immediate impact from whomever was drafted this year. That was likely not going to happen outside of the top three so my initial disappointment was only just a carry over from our $&!#ty luck at the draft lottery. Now that I've had some time to digest the draft results, I think we got a great pick and our D is set for years to come.
  6. Sedin-Sedin-Brouwer Lucic-Sutter-Virtanen Baerschi-Horvat-Hansen Etem-Granlund-Dorsett ....That would be a pretty heavy line-up - Perfect for the west, I like it!
  7. I believe Ottawa is trying to shed salary. This would make sending anyone back to them (Sbisa) difficult. I would like to see him added to the Canucks blue line but only if Hamhuis isn't re-signed.
  8. Looks like no Lucic, so the best idea is....

    Sedin - Sedin - Puljujärvi Baertschi - Horvat - Hansen Etem - Sutter - Virtanen Burrows - Granlund - Dorsett No UFA's please!
  9. #InBenningITrust, do you ?

    Benning has undoubtedly made some mistakes, like all of us he is human. I really don't see the point in either praising him or chastising him at this point in his tenure. Anyone who believed this re-tool, rebuild, or whatever you want to call it would take less then three to four years (minimum, probably longer because of the Sedin situation) hasn't been a hockey fan for very long. Learn to be a bit patient; I've been waiting 40+ years for someone to turn the Canucks into a winner! Let him do his thing and be the judge 3 years from now. If you believe he was going to set us up for a Stanley cup run next season by performing miracles at the trade deadline then you have some very, very, unrealistic expectations and will end up bitter and disappointed regardless of how this plays out.
  10. Nill may have wanted Benning to take salary back or he knew he had no chance in hell of signing Hamhuis after this season. So many things we don't know, so much time for speculation, so much of nothing that Benning can do about it now. Move on my friend....
  11. Biggest thing missed this year is....

    I believe management is "missing" out on an opportunity to allow young players to showcase their talent or lack thereof. Shinkaruk, Gaunce, Grenier, Pedan, etc. should have all had at least 5-10 games of playing time in the NHL by now. We all knew this season was a write off by December so it would have made sense to slot some youth in. See what you have, give the kids some confidence that they are in the clubs future plans, and most of all, show fans that this horrible season served a purpose.
  12. Canucks 3rd Jersey Idea

    They should make it the regular jersey....
  13. [GDT] Wild @ Canucks - MON - FEB15 - 7PM - SNP

    Weber is being pencilled in so that he can be showcased for a trade. I'm thinking JB will package Higgins, Weber, and a 1st for....
