  1. Willie Knows His Decisions Are Questionable

    With the state of this team, of course the decisions are questionable. There is no clear-cut roster decisions on this team because we're frequently comparing players with less than 50 games of NHL experience when deciding who to play.  With that said, I think Willie's decisions are often at odds with what management tells the fans. Management tells the fans that our kids are going to see a huge uptick in their ice-time and be given a much bigger role - McCann proceeds to get sat for multiple games only being given a game when a last minute injury takes Dorsett out of the game. McCann proceeds to only be given 8 minutes of ice. Virtanen who had a beautiful goal last night and who has had the highest corsi on the team since January is only given 9 minutes of ice-time. Its not that his decisions are questionable so much as they're simply at odds with what management tells the fans. 
  2. [Report] Canucks recall Yannick Weber & Alex Friesen

    You scum. Everyone knows you can't make a mistake on these boards without getting flogged.
  3. [GDT] Canucks vs Coyotes @ 6:30 PM PT on SN1

    Neither Hamhuis or Hutton are a top 2 D. They'll get ice-time in those positions but both are underqualified.
  4. [GDT] Canucks vs Coyotes @ 6:30 PM PT on SN1

    I see no reason to give the ice-time to Cracknell over McCann. Cracker won't be on this team next year while McCann will be fighting to remain here - give the kid some ice-time so that he can make his case.  
  5. [GDT] Canucks vs Coyotes @ 6:30 PM PT on SN1

    I really don't get the lack of ice-time for McCann.
  6. I don't really see why everyone is like "oh this totally means Stamkos to the Leafs". Unless they buy-out a few of the contracts they just took on then they actually GAINED cap in this trade for both this year AND next year.  So no, this trade didn't help Toronto get closer to Stamkos. If they really needed to clear cap space I'm sure they could have off-loaded a contract or two at the TDL or bought one of their own players out who was underperforming.  
  7. I don't really see Yandle going anywhere - Rangers still want to make a run as well and losing Yandle would do a lot of harm to their chances. Hamonic is a wild card, but even still. Three good defencemen potentially available - good odds for the Canucks picking up a solid return.
  8. True, but the market is slowly dwindling. Buff and Phaneuf are no longer in trade talks which means its really Yandle and Hamuis that are currently available. Not a lot of options for teams looking to make a run. Supply and Demand is currently in the favor of the Canucks.
  9. I hope neither Hillary nor Trump wins. I'm sick of both and the election isn't even for another year. All you ever hear about from Hillary is that she's a woman and therefore you should vote for her. All Trump does is command the racist and misogynistic hordes of America.  I think I'd be happiest if Bernie won simply because America needs a culture shock and someone who isn't scared to pursue equality in the face of corporate greed.
  10. Playoffs aren't a realistic option anymore. As someone pointed out in a different thread, we need a record of 21-8-1 to get over the estimated playoff point requirement. That's 43 points in 30 games. We've been putting along at at an average of one point per game, what makes people believe we'll be any better in the last 30 games? This team will likely get worse (assuming we do trade off Hamuis and Vrbata) for the short term while rookies fill the gaps and gain experience. We'll look to contend for a playoff spot starting next year once our rebuild is completely properly.
  11. Elephant in the room - Hank and Danny

    The Sedins are untouchable because the owners, management and Sedins have all decided they will retire as Canucks. No one cares if you think they shouldn't be untouchable - your opinion doesn't really have much weight with the Canucks organization.  Creating a topic to discuss the idea of trading the Sedins when management came flat out and said THE SEDINS WILL RETIRE CANUCKS is ridiculous. I don't know how this thread was even kept open. Talk about lacking substance.
  12. I hope McCann can transition to wing. Quite frankly his faceoff numbers have been atrocious in important games and he can still use his playmaking abilities and shot from the wing. While its easier to suggest Vey move to the wing since he is the CDC whipping boy - Vey has had solid faceoff numbers so far and has done well in his position.
  13. Discussion - Trade Deadline Canuck UFA"s

    Quite frankly our predictions are meaningless because the value of our pending UFAs will be completely reliant on the trade deadline day market. If not a lot of teams decide to be sellers, then the value of Hamhuis and Vrbata sky-rocket. On the other hand, if there are a lot of sellers, their value will diminish greatly. Depending on the trade deadline day market, the values of our players likely range from: 1. Hamhuis = 1st and a prospect down to 2nd. 2. Vrbata = 1st down to a 3rd. 3. Bartkowski = 4th down to 6th. 4. Weber = 5th down to 7th (huge volatility due to poor season this year - but could get overpayment if market is in need of D) 5. Prust = 5th down to 7th. 6. Cracknell = Unlikely to garner any return.  Just because its possible to garner a 1st and a prospect doesn't mean that we should only be happy with a return of that high. If the market is poor on trade deadline day and Benning picks up a 2nd for Hamhuis - I'll still be very happy. Same goes for Vrbata. Benning is going to get us the best deal he can - just because the return may be lower than you hoped for doesn't mean it wasn't a solid deal for us considering the market value. All values are assuming the player is traded - although I doubt many trades happen outside of a potential Vrbata/Hamhuis deal.
  14. [Report] Dennis Wideman suspended 20 games

    Sorry, that last comment was more tongue in cheek based on the debates raging over mandatory sentences in criminal law at the moment. 
  15. [Report] Dennis Wideman suspended 20 games

    Goes against administrative law in Canada. The NHL is not an independent body when they are enforcing their own rules - they're extremely biased. There needs to be an independent body that does not have any skin in the game.
