  1. Intentionally throwing games

    My issue with the sentiment that you will ruin young players development if we lose all our remaining games is that 4 games or rather 13 games is completely different than season after season of constant losing, like Edmonton has had to endure. If our prospects are so mentally fragile that a 3 week losing streak ruins their development instead of motivating them to train harder and come back stronger, then we have a bigger problem on our hands and they weren't good prospects to begin with. "There can be no progress without struggle" this mantra rings true more so then ever with our current team. We need to lose to get Better draft picks and we need to lose to motivate our current crop of youth. It's super easy to coast by while the team is winning and the Sedins are towing the line. Winning these last games in a completely useless season is asinine. Sure play competitive but at the end of the game the L is far more valuable to the future of this franchise then the W. For every Edmonton tank fail there is a successful rebuild by tank example. la Chicago etc endured years of crap before landing foundational franchise talent. We don't have a the current talent depth to replace the Sedins and we have the best chance in franchise history to get the 1 pick and we are ruining it. Anyone arguing the Edmonton model and that we should win at all costs is delusional and just wants to somehow lesson the sting of the last two wins. You can't justify it.
  2. Canucks App and related canucks content.

    I have an iPhone 6 and have problems with the app. It doesn't upload any new videos of post game or pregame interviews. No post practice videos. The only new video content is game highlights. I made a thread about this a while back and they locked it. Good to hear it's not just me
  3. I've noticed lately that the iPhone app has stopped uploading pre/post game player interviews. Am I the only one encountering this problem, or have they decided to cut back coverage? I have to go to there actual website on my phone to see them. Kind of defeats the purpose of having the app.
  4. [Rumour] - Caps interested in Hamhuis

    I remember the head scratch that was Washington trading forsberg to Nashville for Erat. Bowey plus for hammer seems plausible with that logic
  5. [Confirmed] Jim Benning signs as new Canucks GM

    Does anyone know if there will be a video of the season ticket holder meeting from last night? I'd like to hear what was said.
  6. [Trade] VAN Dale Weise to MTL

    Wasn't about to read through 14 pages of butthurt/ praise, to check if this had been posted yet. Pretty good article from a Mtl perspective. They are pretty upset to lose him.
  7. [OFFICIAL] Canucks Injury Thread

    @benkuzma: Sullivan said Bieksa's injury is not "cumulative" when asked if defenceman has had season-long soreness. #Canucks
  8. What's going on with David Booth?
