  1. If they wanted to keep him,why not resign him before the drama and make it clear they where keeping him? Do not buy into this attempt to save face.
  2. If Hammy is staying why not have him resigned before this drama? Some one dropped the ball and they will attempt to save face by putting it on Dan.
  3. The allstars where better than I expected but I was troubled by Daniels lack of interaction with the other players. When you go to one of these events you are representing the NHL,Canucks and the fanbase,so you need to play the game. He chose to keep his back to every event and pretend to be interacting with his kids. If you look there are other kids and a handler that was watching other players kids. He refused to leave the bench even after repeated gestures for him to go and take part. Every shot they would show him on the outside of the group at best staring off and not looking to engage. That was a total of 3 times,the rest he spent with his back to every thing. If this was his plan,they should have sent Horvat who would have soaked up some skills from the other players. Makes me pause at to what the issue was.
  4. Sedins and leadership is just a rerun of Naslund from years past. They lack that intangible of rallying the team when needed. Good guys just not there.
  5. Tell that to the Ukraine. You sound like a "No one is illegal" type. All sports are to build group/tribe settings,if you miss that you are missing a big piece of history.
  6. If the team is supposed to make the playoffs,why did Gillis not improve the team? Tired of his half ass attempts to have it both ways.
  7. Was thinking if Torts blew off the post-game he would be gone for sure. Now I am curious to see what happens in the next couple days.
  8. CBC will act like they wont jump on a team when they are down and follow that by doing a long attack through the Moore incident. They will connect that to Kassian and the last time we played Calgary. The whole pregame panel will dogpile on. Intermission will be Maclean talking out the side of his mouth and salivating at our fortunes. If this game gets out of hand score wise or fight wise CBC will go right into character assassination. Tempted not to watch but like a well trained sheep I will watch.
  9. Simmonds has a limited NTC and Philly would be crazy to lose him.
  10. OH look Toronto has let the cat out of the bag as usual.
  11. Gillis: "End of the day we tried unsuccessfully to make a move and the pieces just where not there"! or "He is someone I had my eye on for a couple years now..."! (Meaning this guy is going to have to do because I fail at trades)
  12. Looking at the schedule I do not see anything being done till Wed. Due to the Tues game being a good shake out gauge for rebuild or go for it this year. So what are the thoughts on the Pen deal being leaked? I am a bit worried because of the Nonis/Dredger garbage that went down last year with the LU trade. Its that and Gillis is being played again or its a sign that we are trying to drive the cost up,hopefully the latter.
  13. When you mentioned prospects and the amount of 2-3 players in the deal I was thinking farther along the line in development or younger. I like all the names you mention but Schenn wouldnt be considered a prospect at this point. What I thought you meant was 2-3 players that where more iffy. Columbus is really interesting based on what we could get in a package,I agree Jenner should be involved if we go the multiple route rather than shooting for the moon in Johansen.
  14. Just meaning that I rather see us go after a decent player than hope for 2 out of 3 prospects to turn out. We are talking about Gillis and that worries me more than if it was another GM with some intelligence in the trade arena.
  15. Two ways of thinking and I would rather not go that route with our history as a organization.
