  3. [Roster]Opening day forward line up

    I completely agree about the end of season games - but I still think that Leipsic was one of our best players (if not THE best player) on the ice in almost every one of those 14 games. The kid was fast, skilled, and exciting to watch. The kid was giving it every shift. Now I'm aware that he was likely viewing those games as a "try-out period", but I still think that he earns a spot in the opening night line-up. We need more players like Leipsic in the line-up.
  4. [Roster]Opening day forward line up

    I really think you guys are underrating Leipsic. The guy put up 9 points in 14 games with us last season. At the very least, he's a decent third liner and I believe he should be on the opening night roster.
  5. Trudeau accused of groping young FEMALE reporter..

    Yup. I mean quite frankly, if she had come out with more details and whatnot, I wouldn't have an issue with people using it as a weapon against him (I'd support it just like I support people using Trump's history against him). The problem here is that the alleged victim hasn't share details, doesn't want to share details, and has said she wants to be left alone. So making up a story where there isn't one is the definition of "fake news". If a JT critic wants to bash on JT for his policies, have at it. There's plenty to agree/disagree over. But don't get caught up on stuff like this. Makes a JT critics legitimate arguments weaker when they mix those arguments with stupid attacks like this.
  6. Trudeau accused of groping young FEMALE reporter..

    No one except the alleged victim knows what happens. She hasn't gone on record saying what happened other than there was physical contact that she felt uncomfortable with. It could be anything from a boob grab to JT putting his hand on her shoulder while walking past. Who knows. The alleged victim has said she doesn't want to share her story, doesn't feel like its an issue, and wants to move on. The media has covered it plenty. People bitching about this are just looking for an ad hominem attack to leverage their position in arguing against JT and his policies.
  7. Benning has multiple personality disorder. How can he preach about getting younger, faster, and more skilled at the draft every year and then drop 10 million a couple days later on old, slow, grinders.

    I don't get it.

    This guy goes from zero to hero to zero every single year.

      EP, Bo, Brock, can't do it all.

       

      You needs some grit and toughness as well. 

       

      It puts pressure on existing players to get better or you're on the trading block. 

       

      Still lots of jobs available.

      I'm calling this my "asset management"  lineup.  Gaunce is the main one being exposed to waivers (Boucher, Kero, Sautner, McEneny as well but that's what AHL depth is)

      Baertschi Horvat Boeser
      Leipsic Sutter Eriksson
      Roussel Beagle Virtanen
      Goldobin Schaller Granlund
      Gagner    
           
      Edler Tanev  
      Del Zotto Gudbranson
      Pouliot Stecher  
      Hutton Biega  

       

      Only Boeser in that lineup is waiver exempt.  That means if we want Pettersson, Juolevi, Gaudette (or anyone else) in the lineup someone is either getting traded or put on waivers.  Not impossible, but also not much value there.  My guess is Pettersson makes the jump and the Canucks ditch Goldobin for a 6th or 7th round pick.

      @Wilbur - That line-up is a 31st place finish waiting to happen. That second line is a 3rd-4th line on a playoff team. That third line is a medicore 4th line on a playoff team. That 4th line is an AHL 1st/2nd line. 

       

      I don't understand how they preach about making space for our rookies and then they literally fill all the holes with aging veterans. 

      The "protect the young kids with grit" mantra only makes sense if THE KIDS ARE &^@#ING PLAYING. Like what the hell? That line-up doesn't even contain Juolevi who needs to make the jump this year or he's verging on bust territory. Pettersson, Dahlen, Gaudette, and perhaps even Hughes should be given space if they show well at the prospect tournament. So why the hell sign so many old grinders? Makes no sense.

  8. Who are the bottom 10 teams in 2018 - 2019 (Discussion)

    Too many variables to accurately predict the Canucks season at this point. I think the Canucks are going to be a dark horse candidate for being a wildcard team, but at the same time, they could also finish dead last. No one has any idea what our opening night line-up will look like. Without the Sedins, we're missing out on nearly 100 points, but we don't know what free agents we'll sign to replace those points. We have no idea if Elias will be able to transition to the NHL game without any hick-ups - he could be a Calder favorite, but he could also have a really slow first year as he transitions. We have no idea if Boeser will regress, plateau, or improve (that injury could play into this). Our back-end could be super young if both Juolevi and Hughes somehow make the jump - and this would be a huge wildcard for our team. We have no idea how players returning from injury will react to the NHL game again. At the end of the day, I don't think we can make any accurate predictions until pre-season is done. We'll have a better idea then with what free agents we have, what rookies are making the jump, and how players have recovered from injury in the off-season.
  9. Surprised we got Kero for Chaput. Neither are going to be NHL stars, but Kero has proven he can be a solid depth guy and put up some points from the bottom six. I'm surprised Chicago thought this was a fair swap.
  10. (Proposal) All in this Draft

    You couldn't even get the 6OA for Gaudette in a video game.
  11. I think its too early to tell. We all thought Hutton would be a top 4 guy after his first couple seasons, but now he is a fringe NHL'er on one of the worst teams in the league. Granted I think he's better than his ice-time has shown, but he highlights why you need consistency before making statements like this. I think Stecher has higher offensive upside than Hutton does and I'd like to see him wield that more before I'm prepared to call him a top 4 guy.
  12. Speaking as a lawyer, I think that this is the correct decision, assuming his rehabilitation was genuine. There are many lawyers out there who have said far worse things than what Robin Camp said in front of a judge, and they have kept their licenses and rarely even received a warning. Removing him from the bench was the correct decision, and reinstating him as a lawyer is as well.
  13. Emergency response test

    I got one. Reminder to those with old phones - you can only get the alert if you're on the LTE network.
