  1. Ok that's not what i said, "depth" for those years you put up, we had a decent D but where is the depth? As in when our blue line was hit hard losing to boston where eddie was out, then hamhuis, and then erhoff and salo was playing hurt. Who jumped up and played D in their stead so we could take them out? No one and that hasn't changed YET.. and that's why mr Stanley never paid us a visit against the B's
  2. When have we ever had a D that had any depth at all? Most of the time when we had a team in front of Lou and someone went down on injury, well then we sucked "as usual"
  3. I hope not to justify over paying edler if he wants too much but we can't afford to keep an injury prone player too longer as we don't have depth to cover it (yet) cmon JB nothing longer than 2 years unless on discount but after over paying the declining sedins i'm skeptical. However that could have been just to keep the stadium semi sort of attended knowing a rebuild would have to happen. Anyway, as long as i don't read nmc or ntc in his signing i won't be pissed at all. No matter what, not just building a good D, we need depth too.
  4. Are you serious? Of course his numbers aren't elite, not in front of the worst defence in the league. No one would have elite numbers with our D and team D as a whole. We don't need to score a whole bunch more goals, we need to stop so many against us. Expecting a goalie to bail you out every night after you hang him out to dry is ridiculous. Have a look at how many give aways and shots against us. Our D was nothing short of laughable.
  5. Yeah hung him out to dry most nights... sound familiar? Cough cough luongo cough cough..
  6. I was thinking that too... botch of all people, wow but like it's said "feed em b.s. long and loud enough they'll believe it"
  7. Well don't list the injuries, just the source. Not including his 2 recently of course. Where did you look, site i mean.
  8. All these injuries? Like how many total? Seriously, if he was in his late 30's or older it will be a problem but at that age, recovery is faster and easier. Anyway OJ will be fine, did he get set back a bit by it? Sure but again, that young, it's a blip. Nothing to freak out over and write him off... oh wait, this is the cdc...
  9. And he was my second choice... $&!#e! Maybe his D sucks and needs work..
  10. Good points, we can only have so many elites and still cap space spent wisely then there's seattle.. ugh.. However if someone isn't elite but scores 20-30 then that would surely help if you put it with elites. I mean borderline elite on a 3.5-5mil a season and then D gets a make over, tanev and edler, if they stay, probably wouldn't be around after another 3 seasons that would take to develop and or season what we have but probably JB picks up 2 more, 1 ready and another developing who is already consistant but needs more ice time... think that would do it and see where it goes from there.
  11. sign him for and play him and demko tandem for 2 yrs and if demko works out then trade mark and move up mikey into a back up and if he gets good as a starter trade him for another Bo
  12. why would we trade demko or dip? markstrom is here for another 2 years Im sure and demko can back up both of those years and dip can play on the farm.. then trade markstrom when demko and dip have continued their development with ian clark and get to top nhl calibre goalie status.
  13. who cares about Guddy being good or bad now, can we move on now and watch the change already?
  14. And with a cap in place there's only so much room for elite and super elite so balancing it out is no easy task but if a really good forward top 6 player comes along that can mentor as we develop depth and see where our youth goes (Jake Gaud Mac etc.) that we have now which are big question marks and need a bit more time However if we trade the pick+\- players and upgrade D, that'd be cool too. Meh, we're getting there. Git er' done Trader Jim! P.S. Ferland please! Then 1-2 Dmen and then set to see where it goes..
  15. Appearantly Victor Soderstrom should be 10th but you know how that goes but if he's our guy, elite prospects has a bit to say about him Victor Solderstrom: uber competitive two-way defenceman that thinks the game at the highest level, Victor Söderström is the complete package. A naturally gifted skater, his ability to traverse all three zones is best described as smooth and effortless. He never looks disinterested and it's always apparent just how badly he wants to win. His vision and awareness is outstanding, allowing him to play a responsible yet dynamic brand of hockey. He's a dangerous puck-carrier with a great shot. Defensively, he makes good decisions quickly and consistently, never looking out of place when pitted up against the other team's top players. He pressures the opposition and limits options, never getting in the way of his goalie. All-in-all, Söderström's competitive instincts allow him to take full advantage of his offensive ability and defensive prowess. He's a game-changer. (Curtis Joe, EP 2019)
  16. So for those unable to watch it, its going bad but where did we land? Or still waiting?
  17. Ya think i didn't do that? Live 2019 nhl lottery just put me nowhere really.. tried but meh then cdc crashes lol Sounds like canuck lottery luck no?
  18. Just have internet, no tv. Anyone know of a feed to watch online?
  19. Hmmm... i think we need to find a virgin goat but i think they'd be hard to find, i bet goat herders get lonely out there...
  20. If aquaman doesn't make money then it's simply a tax write off on his combined income so to him it's not a really a loss but as a hockey fan, i'm sure he'd be stoked to make the playoffs (go past the first) or win the cup. Either way he kind of wins. Income tax is not cheap in Canada, business can write off loss so unless it eats into his other gains, like i said, not sure he's freaking out if we don't sell out every night or not playoff bound.
  21. But i still suck.. can i take a serious cut in pay please? If only...
  22. I'm up for Ferland, has skill, he decent speed AND can knock you out on your (_l_) !! Like we don't need that in the line up!
  23. Dude, you actually think most players would jump at the opportunity to play in vancouver? No way, the opposite if anything. Players always want more to play here, i would too. The media and a good portion of fan are pathetic in the lack of hockey knowledge. However there are the good ones who know a good chunk of the business etc but highly unlikely you find players who want to come here especially with the win now attitude that's killed us for years...
