  1. Huge fan of tarasenko but he’d cost us an arm and leg BUT I’ll throw a hypothetical at your feet, it’s up to you if you want to pick it up to stl: tanev, gaudette, goldobin, hutton, 1st round pick 2019 (not top 10 protected), 2nd round pick 2020 to van: tarasenko, parayko

    [RUMOUR] TANEV to toronto

    TO is gonna swing for pietrangelo it just seems like a good fit and tor has the assets to make it work if stl takes on Zaitsevs contract who is having an awful year

    [PGT] Vancouver Canucks at St. Louis Blues | Dec. 09, 2018

    they are on the back nine of their prime. have you seen them skate? they play old bouwmeester - 35, steen - 34, bozak - 32, perron - 30, maroon - 30 and allen - 28. none of their core players are under 25. legitimate contending teams do not have that many 30 year old players on their team

    [PGT] Vancouver Canucks at St. Louis Blues | Dec. 09, 2018

    Always nice to watch your team get all the bounces around the net blues have some good players but none push the pace. They are the 2014 version of the Canucks. old, slow and resisting the inevitable rebuild. They could turn that team around so fast with the haul they could get for pietrangelo, Tarasenko, oreilly, schenn, parayko or edmundson. They would easily get a 1st rounder for each of those guys +++ whatever else

    It’s the truth. If someone disagrees then you’re simply wrong.

    Canucks needs baertschi back. This teams has little to no offensive creativity after boeser, pettersson and horvat and if goldy can’t figure it out we need a top 6 left winger but Maybe it’s leivo

    [Report] Canucks loan Sam Gagner to Toronto Marlies

    I would have kept gagner to let him build on his solid play to maaaybbee create a trade market for him. Sending him down again just undo’s everything he did up here in terms of value gaudette will go down as soon as bear or sutter come back but I would have sent him back before gagner gaudette isn’t ready and needs more time

    [GDT] Wild at Nucks 7pm Rogers Arena Dec 4 2018

    Nice to see beagle back. He looked great early on. Leivo-pettersson-boeser roussel-horvat-eriksson Granlund-gaudette-virtanen schaller-beagle-motte goldobin/gagner edler-tanev hutton-gudbranson del zotto-biega pouliot/stecher soneones gotta go. Gagner might be going back down but I’d be surprised considering how well he’s played
  11. Leafs fans have always cried for this guy to get a shot so we’ll see what he does Interested to see him play

    [Waivers] Brendan Leipsic (Kings claim Leipsic)

    Not surprised. He’s another Reid Boucher caliber player
  13. 2pm Vancouver time! Let’s get this over with! Nylander has just ruined his relationship with the Toronto franchise forever so I hope he’s happy with whatever happens to his situation hes robin, not Batman. Doesn’t deserve a cent over 7m. 6.5m is more like it

    Canucks don't want to be too good yet

    Well he’s right. The canucks aren’t ready to win thus needing another pillar to build on. it just feels that way. A core of a Stanley cup contending team usually consists of 6 players. Pettersson, Horvat, boeser and Hughes. 2 spots are left for impact young players. Juolevi, virtanen, demko or a 2019 draft pick hopefully whenever they draft the BPA is a dman

    [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights at Vancouver Canucks | Nov. 29, 2018

    the curious case of virtanen starts games on the 3rd line... gets bumped off PP2 for little things loui and minor leaguer leipsic... yet, gets moved up the line up when canucks need a goal... maybe if you kept him in the top 6 your team would not always be down by 1 or 2 in the third!

    [Trade] Strome/Perlini for Schmaltz

    More than anything chi added some depth which they need desperately. they are a team, along with pit, who refuse to accept losing

    [PGT] Vancouver Canucks at San Jose Sharks | Nov. 23, 2018

    I love the way Roussel battles every game. He brings compete when no one else does he’s the kind of player who comes valuable in a playoff series
  20. Not lobbying for either, just wanted to test the waters if canucks fans would go for a big 2019 free agent signing duchene will probably get Kane/JVR type money hes having a good year so far and will probably be testing the market on July 1

    7yrs/70m? thats a hard sell considering we’ll never get the best version of him

    [PGT] Winnipeg Jets at Vancouver Canucks | Nov. 19, 2018

    Pettersson scored wooo entertaining game markstrom is the most inconsistent goalie in the league like wow jets are an elite team who toyed with the canucks for stretches of this game
