  1. Well if a part of a portfolio fails then it just becomes a tax write off..
  2. Of course JB will be more than happy or arrange to have him play there another year so we don't lose him in the exp draft.. trying to keep everyone now is going to be difficult as it is... or pay Seattle something to take a bottom six player or pick, anyway trying not to get excited for the big freight train back in a Nux uniform until it happens..
  3. People want Myers gone because he's not smaller and super fast but that's fine for the regular season but in the playoffs that's going to get run over and go nowhere near Stanley.. simple short sightednews but thankfully JB made it known it caught his attention to the need for size and toughness which has been the usual in Vancouver for years with an exception or 2 so they forget about that.. that's why JB went after Guddy, had he worked out into a top 4 pairing guy to put with Hughes would have rocked the show but your right we still need that and hope we get one.. however I'm glad we have size in Myers and hopefully soon Tryamkin.. The other comment in the same idea is our new additions of JT and TT, both have skill but also some grit.. glad it's not just on the back end, not saying their fighters or anything but their not pussies either but at least not the butter soft team we had that was fun to watch until we got pummeled and ousted every year come playoff time which was always heart breaking for buck fans...
  4. Thanks I forgot to do that.. kudos.
  5. Boeser is signed until LE is gone, then he gets a portion of that added to what he has now on his contact so he's paid for but it's Petey who scares me cap wise, but JB will do what he has to do, at this point, I just want to see our top 6 stay as it is, Tofolli was the icing on the cake along with JT added to our guys looks like a pretty solid top 6.. and our bottom 6 will look better as players settle in and then to work on D but we still don't know exactly how that will work out but the expansion draft doesn't excite me.. only so many guys we can protect but we still have Hogs n Podz to hopefully fill the void of a lost forward which we probably lose unless by then we agree for Seattle to get Markstrom in exchange plus they take LE's contract plus a 1st round pick coming to us? Meh idk.. lol can you tell I hate LE that bad to package Marky? Lmao yup!!
  6. All I want for Christmas is Toffoli.. man I hope we get to keep him, Alien Flow TT JT Bo JV can only get better as the young guys gain experience and the team as a whole actually playing a lot obviously will help, been a turnstile team for long enough, yeah a lil bit with tweaking but hopefully it's over soon and we can actually grow a identity for a change and keep it.. fast tough and skilled.. yes please, had that 2011 but no depth but that's changing! Yay! Lol
  7. So you want to trade 1 of 2 big dmen as in Myers when we'll need it in the playoffs? We should have 2 big guys because what if we have a playoff run next year and Train gets injured and things get really rough? And Train isn't a lock yet until he signs.. Not a wise idea, LE of course but Sutter can now be replaced by AG since he has another season "almost" under his belt and played well enough to take the reigns as a top shutdown player for us and should pot 20 goals.. There's my 2..
  8. Well I think we can all agree it's great to see JV aand Gaudette produce out of the system so we can let go of other guys as we keep tweaking.. hopefully Hogs n Podz next and OJ doing the JV thing and grow into his top 4 D assessment, plus Woo.. and then train back but headed in the right direction with a farm producing just at the right time and in the next few years, yeah we still need tweaks but getting less and less for a change..
  9. For what it's worth, JV was voted most improved Canuck. Do you agree with it? I can't think of anyone close except for Hughes but he wasn't on the list but he's already shown so much natural born talent that he wasn't included? idk. FanSided author Brayden Ursel listed an article wrote it up. voted 1-4 JV Big Mac Gaud Pearson Have to agree and stoked at how Big Mac turned it up a notch too! Thoughts?
  10. agreed ANDDDDDD i'm hoping Train for 4-5... we could use 2 BIG D men to pair with smaller faster offensive pmd's.. and then a bigger but not as big Top pairing D partner for Hughes..
  11. The difference between the Nux and a Stanley Cup winner? Hmmm I still give it 3 years from now..
  12. First.. Tanev is usually injured and we can't depend on having him around, and we don't need a big time replacement since we're 2-3 years away anyway.. we need just to have 4 top guys on D and good support.. Woo is fine being 2 years away, train is a upgrade of Stetch as far as bringing a better passing game than he left with toughness in spades.. ( every team wants and needs that ) OJ will fill a top 4 as projected by most but slowed up with untimely injuries slowed his development but in 2 years 2nd line no problem. Rafferty has a outside chance.. great vision and playmaking ability and good in his own end. In 2-3 years our window will be wide open, splitting hairs on players on the rise vs sacrificing something unless you don't need it doesn't make sense before that I don't think.. wouldn't you rather see what you have works out or not first? .
  13. Well I don't think there is going to be a D issue with young guys coming up.. they need a year playing on the team so after that is a good time for JB to start looking for a deal if things don't work out with Rafferty, Woo, OJ, Train etc but I bet someone will work out
