  1. Canucks hanging onto how with the sedins who need to retire. Benning and Gillis not clearing house 4-6 years ago; selling a non rebuild when the fans wanted it (new players, skill), wasted picks, bad trades, high prices, apathy, etc it’s no doubt affecting low attendance look at how the leafs did it right - 2 years of pain and now a bright future with a great on ice product
  2. We need a #1 goalie...

    Markstrom isn’t a number one. He’s just filling in for Demko/DiPietro; unfortunately for another 3 years. Nobody will take him. Recall even Florida gave up on him; too emotional for the game and let’s in bad goals on a regular basis (see games as a panther)...
  3. [PGT] Calgary Flames vs. Vancouver Canucks

    This team is a heap of garbage - playing with no purpose. Watching molasses in Vanek and the Sedins. 4 garbage years with management - flubbed picks with OJ and Virtanen makes a huge difference. Where was Horvat all game? One trick pony but cannot lead the play. Boeser with your best shot and they take him off the brutal PP? Why did we rehire Brown again? How does a goalie as big as Markstrom let so many goals through him? Bad Gillis trade for Luongo. Never will be a top tier goalie. Bottom line - we are in for another bad year and lose the draft lottery. We are the mid 2000‘s flames - heading nowhere but mediocrity. Benning and co will have to be fired midseason if this product continues.
  4. Vancouver trades Hutton & Rodin to Detroit for Athanasiou Hutton has been rumored for a while to be on the block and Detroit loves their mobile defensemen along with European Canucks another top 6-9 forward with potential to pot 20-25 goals .... there was a rumor Benning was kicking the tires on athanasiou...
  5. PTO invites

    Remember samuelsson at the memorial cup. Guess he's turning into cassels struggling through the AHL. He'd be a good bottom 6 but we have enough. Need top 6 scorers. Purcell could and Vanek.
  6. PTO invites

    Sounds like with the China games and create more competition the Canucks will bring in a couple PTO's. Looking through the list of usable players... Cody Franson Alex Chiasson Eric Gelinas Lauri Korpikoski Jiri Hudler Thomas Vanek Henrik Sammuelsson Teddy Purcell Brandon Pirri Tanner Glass Stephane Da Costa Daniel Winnik Not a great list but Winnik/Glass for size and Purcell/Chiasson for scoring and maybe a flyer on Samuelson for Utica (what happened to this guy?) Pick your PTO 2-3 players...
  7. [Rumour] Tanev for James Van Riemsdyk

    Look for the following trade: Vancouver: JVR (% retained), Kapanen Toronto: Tanev, Chaput
  8. [Rumour] Tanev for James Van Riemsdyk

    Hockeytrader @nhltradesguy·6h Pens are busy. Offered Hagelin, Pouliot, 1st for Tanev. Benning getting lots of interest in Tanev. Driving price up. can see Benning wants a player and a prospect/pick for Tanev. Don't rule out the leafs but while the pens offer isn't very good it's driving up the market. Would Lou give brown/lilegren/pick?
  9. [Rumour] Canucks being approached about Tanev

    If tanev goes to the leafs get kapanen and brown plus lilegren; otherwise trade him to buffalo for Reinhart or don't trade him at all.
  10. [Discussion] Jaromir Jagr Rumors 2017 FA

    Think of all the Jagr jerseys that ownership could sell... his mullet is a legend in itself. 1 year bonus incentive deal...
  11. Perhaps a 2 way or PTO but likely to replace Dorsett and if they end up trading Gudbranson... Dhaliwal has been money lately on this stuff unlike Sekeres...
  12. [Rumour] Tanev for James Van Riemsdyk

    Not overly reputable but ... Hockeytrader @nhltradesguy Canucks and Sabres have been talking for awhile now about Tanev for Reinhart. Getting more serious.
  13. [Rumour] Tanev for James Van Riemsdyk

    Other rumor is Tanev for Sam Reinhart. Younger more second line center the Canucks could use behind Bo. JVR is too old and injury proned - pass. Opens up sutter deal or moving him to wing
  14. Linden on Team1040 this afternoon pretty much spilled the beans needing to dip into UFA pool for a goalie (D depth + skilled forwards who can play PP2 unit) - so we can say goodbye to Miller. Not much goalie who can act as a backup but also potential for 1B (see Markstrom's injury woes) would be Kinkaid. Played well in New Jersey and was used to Schneider who was the undisputed number 1. Kuemper would be another option. I don't see Lack here - had a woeful year and it was a one way ticket out of Vancouver. Appears they want some skill (Weal, Agostino = Top 6 in Utica and bottom 6 with the club + Gagner, Fontaine,Purcell Top 9 and PP2 unit). On D for depth look to Postma, Tennyson, Quincey, Weircoch, Folin, Hunwick & Auvitu (this guy was on fire with NJ at one point...). If Dorsett doesn't return look at Thorburn, King & Bollig.
  15. Names to keep an eye on (UFA): Jordan Weal (C) Dylan McIlrath (D) Dmitri Kulikov (D) Darcy Kuemper (G) Dwight King (L) Keith Kinkaid (G) Brad Hunt (D) Jhonas Enroth (G)
