  1. Hopp Schwiiz! El Nino being drafted so high definitely helped too! I wish we could claim Ehlers as Swiss but he didn't spend enough time in the NLA/B :/
  2. He's very Swiss. If anyone says he is Italian then by that logic Robyn Regehr was Brazilian... and Tim Tebow is Phillippino... From the small amount of time I have talked to him, I can tell you his Swiss German is very fluent.. can't comment on the Italian though! #HoppSchwiiz
  3. Cmon what? The Sbisa hate is so 2016.... Preferably keep them both if possible but if we had to, definately protect Sbisa. Not only is he playing better, he will be a better cap hit going forward too
  4. Can totally agree with this. I have been lucky enough to spend a lot of time in Halifax throughout the past few years, first Ehlers was amazing (man I wish we picked him!), then Timo Meier dominated (damn you Sharks!) now Nico is the new star. Personally I rate him as a better pick than Timo currently but still behind Ehlers though he could easily reach that level! I think he was rated 6th in a 2017 draft rankings that I read a few weeks ago, that sounds about right for a Canucks pick...
  5. Ryan Miller has the flu. Isn't at Rogers Arena for morning skate. Doubtful to dress tonight. Garteig recalled because he's closer than Utica
  6. I lived in Halifax for a while a few years ago and watching Ehlers play for the Mooseheads was unbelievable, he was the only player I have ever seen literally skate circles around other players! I was pushing to sign him bad but only time will tell!
  7. Ben Kuzma ‏@benkuzma 6 minutes ago Benning confirms PTOs for C/LW James Sheppard, 28, and RW Tuomo Ruutu, 33. #Canucks Haven't seen this posted yet (ignore if it is) but confirmed via Kuzma through Benning
  8. Also from Pedan: Andrei Pedan to Sport-Express: 'McCann was the only guy in #Canucks I couldn't get along. Sometimes he acted like he's the lonely star here' — Igor Eronko (@IgorEronko) May 31, 2016
  9. pretty sure Buffalo would just hand us over Evander Kane (and his issues), for free... unless the add-ons are for cap space!
  10. just for Desi- "gilt als offensiver Verteidiger mit einem guten Schus" is translated to "Is a legit offensive d-man with a GREAT SHOT"
  11. from the Kloten Flyers website below which I randomly stumbled across today. If somebody wants it translated I will do that but basically saying he's signed from the end of July to a one year deal. 06.07.2016 DER US-AMERIKANER BOBBY SANGUINETTI (28) VERTEIDIGT NÄCHSTE SAISON FÜR DEN EHC KLOTEN Bobby Sanguinetti, der bereits in der NHL, KHL und zuletzt in der AHL Erfahrungen sammelte, hat einen Einjahresvertrag bis zum Ende der Saison 2016/2017 unterschrieben. Von 2010 bis 2013 spielte Sanguinetti in der Organisation der Carolina Hurricanes, für welche er 40 Spiele in der NHL absolvierte. In der Saison 2015/2016 verteidigte er für die Rochester Americans (AHL). Bobby Sanguinetti bestritt insgesamt 429 Spiele in der AHL und gilt als offensiver Verteidiger mit einem guten Schuss. Der 1.91m Grosse soll mit seinen Qualitäten das Powerplay lenken. Der EHC Kloten ist erfreut über die Verpflichtung vom erfahrenen Spieler Bobby Sanguinetti. Er wird Ende Juli 2016 zum Team stossen und das Training in Kloten aufnehmen.
  12. Top scoring defenseman two seasons ago... and he will be missed. seriously, grow up!
  13. someone please start the "JB, do us all a favour and NEVER TRADE Sbisa" thread already! #SaveLuca
  14. I love Sbisa! Really nice guy and solid hockey player, I also never understood the issues with his contract.... works well for me in term and cap! looking forward to next season!
