  1. The Future of this team and the direction it is going

    Mike Gillis has been put through the effing ringer. The guy gets so much crap for not trading Lu earlier. A contract that turned out to be virtually unmovable. He got the deal done. Finally. And he got what he wanted back. Markstrom was supposed to be untouchable, but one off year for him, on the awful panthers, and he became available. Lets be honest here. Luongo is not the same goalie that he once was. 06/07 was a looooong time ago. I mean it used to be that there were only 3-5 goalies that were good in the league. That were considered elite. Now there is close to 15. Quick, Schneider, Lundqvist, Price, Rinne, Hiller, Lehtonen, Fleury, Miller, Smith, Bobrovsky, Elliot, Halak, and the immortal Josh Harding with a 1.65 GAA. It's just really levelled off. So now Luu and Schneider, a combined 9.333 million, are gone and cap space has been created. David Booth buyout at the end of the year. And it's going to be a pretty interesting free agency this year.. Moulson, Gaborik, Vanek, Iginla, Callahan. Legwand, Bolland, Ott, Penner, Vrbata, Michalek, Brassard, Jagr, Hemsky, Cammalleri. The Canucks will now have enough cap space to land a player from each of those groups. Our lineup next year could look something like this: Sedin Sedin Burrows Moulson Kesler Vrbata Higgins Mathias Kassian Sestito Richardson Thornton Pretty good. And our defence stays intact. I'm okay with that line-up. Although the possibility of an american trio of Kesler, Moulson, and Callahan has me salivating :) Gillis has done his best in a very crappy situation. He's a good GM. I have faith that the necessary moves will be made next year.
  2. 20 game point nearing. Does AV lose his job if Nucks are .500 team?

      Not unless CDC becomes the new GM.

      gillis has said, that AV isn't going anywhere, nor should he......this is your team, try embracing them...

      it will do wonders for your complexion....

  3. Does anyone else think the Canucks looked pretty damn tired last night?

      Well, yeah, but every team looks tired when they lose 8-1.

      I mean in the 2nd though. They seemed to lose gas. We killed them in the first, but in the 2nd we just didn't seem to be able to keep up the pace. I honestly think that the reason we lost that game was because our guys were exhausted.

      when anh scored those 2 power play goals, it gave them more inspiration.....we had that in the 3rd period and dominated....

  4. AV is a mediocre coach.. I'll wait for a Nucks win to make a thread about it.

      For someone who isn't a big AV fan I actually think he's been doing a good job in this series, the players just didn't show up yesterday. Wasn't a fan of the 4th line changes and still no Ballard, though.

  5. Daniel Kesler Burrows / Higgins Henrik Raymond

  6. Kevin Bieksa you are really...

    I like it.. Risky, but necessary if we want to have our cake and eat it too.
  7. If Gretzky can be traded then the Canucks CAN get Weber.

      This logic blew my mind.

    4. mooremooremoore


      Lol.. Those were the kind of reactions I was going for.. Seriously though, Weber is an RFA at the end of this year. If we signed him to an offer sheet at like 7-7.5 per for 10 years would Nashville be able to afford it in their situation(not close to the cap, yet ownership unwilling to dish out the bucks)? Anything's possible.

  8. Kevin Bieksa you are really...

    ^^^ This.
  9. Kevin Bieksa you are really...

    Kevin is a top 4 d-man, but not on our team. I hope he's out a few more games so that AV realizes how good Ballard can be. Bieksa would be useful as a 5th defenceman and a PP specialist(I'm giving him a lot of credit here, I know).
  10. People seem to think I have a hate on for AV. People think correctly.

      Ive been accused of being a Bieksa lover.

    3. mooremooremoore


      I like Bieksa, too. Just in a limited role and at a lower cap hit.

  12. Ballards not 'elite' but he's pretty damn good.
