  1. You weren't there so its not right to assume. Just because you have seen this before does'nt mean it applies in this case. If she was extremely intoxicated, then she does not have the ability to give consent. A rape is a rape. Stop blaming the victim.
  2. Selecting Ronning in the 7th for a PR move is a wasted pick just as when the Canucks selected Morgan Clark, son of Canuck's Ian Clark and Prab Rai, to drum up potential interest amongst the Indo-Canadians.
  3. I get this odd feeling Canucks will draft Logan Brown
  4. In addition to archived searches for articles in Vancouver Sun and the Province, the only mention of Gus Morschauser is the fact he was drafted 10th round. No in depth stories, no accolades, no mention of being a "draft steal".
  5. Gus Morschauser was never a member of the Vancouver Canucks. His rights may have been property of the Canucks but the club never signed him. 10th rounders never usually go far let alone a sip of tea in the NHL. May he rest in peace, but with over a thousand players having once been "property" of the Canucks, or any team for that matter, do you expect to give recognition for every player who passess?
  6. http://www.tsn.ca/canucks-oilers-front-runners-for-caggiula-1.485052 It appears NCAA prospect Drake Caggiula may sign a contract with a Canadian NHL team, according to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie. McKenzie says the Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers are believed to be the front-runners for his services. Follow Bob McKenzieVerified account‏@TSNBobMcKenzie It's believed VAN and EDM may be frontrunners in that but we shall see. OTT also had interest. Follow Bob McKenzieVerified account‏@TSNBobMcKenzie One of the U.S.-based NHL teams interested in college UFA Drake Caggiula (UND) has been informed the player is going to a team in CAN. The 21-year-old forward has played with the University of North Dakota for the past four seasons and posted 25 goals with 26 assists for 51 points over 39 games in 2015-16. The undrafted Caggiula is a hot commodity after putting up great numbers during this year's Frozen Four tournament in Tampa Bay. The native of Pickering, Ont. won the Frozen Four's most outstanding player award after netting four goals and one assist in two games, including two tallies in the championship final. North Dakota topped Quinnipiac 5-1 to capture their first national championship since 2000.
  7. If only dreams can come true!
  8. Vrbata wasn't going anywhere because Canucks Management believe they will make the playoffs.
  9. The Canucks have never won a lottery. While the initial coin toss prior to the 1970 draft was awarded to the Canucks, Buffalo challenged it and an error was found and the Sabres indeed won the coin toss. Secondly, Hodgson's draft year in 2008, Tampa Bay Lightning won the lottery and were able to retain 1st overall. The Canucks DID briefly retain the 1st Overall Draft pick in 1999 due to wheeling and dealing by then GM Brian Burke. Bryan McCabe and a future 1st rounder was traded to Chicago Black Hawk's 4th overall pick. Then he traded two later round selections for Tampa Bay's 1st overall pick and then sent that pick along with another to Atlanta with assurances they would not select a Sedin. Atlanta proceeded to select Patrik Stefan first overall and the rest is history. So in essence, the Canucks DID have 1st Overall, if only for a brief moment.
  10. Florida does' not need a Center. They already have Bjustad, Barkov, Pirri and Trochrk. What they need are defenseman and a Top 6 winger.
  11. I wouldn't want to see it go that far either. Just enough to show that what comes around, goes around.
  12. Karma Keith....Karma.
  13. Who's Dale Woodley? Unless you meant Dan Woodley. Alek Stojanov was a excellent pick only because it got us Markus Naslund.
  14. This idea of rewarding teams that "spends wisely" is basically going to induce NHL teams to end up being cheap on how they pay players. And even if it allows a team a carried over cap number, there's no guarantee that teams such as NY Islanders or Buffalo Sabres willing to spend to that amount. If anything, a personal team cap that is in compliance with the league's minimum means that much more money to the owners. I can see how some teams will use this rule to somehow avoid going to the cap ceiling each season.
  15. Wishful thinking. I say he gets no points. Called it!
