  1. Little long... but I am happy
  2. I would love to see Canucks retain all the Sedin Salary/cap for them to go to any team they want. Regardless of return next year, it might fix the Canucks reputation of how they treat players. Plus I could see Sedins resigning in the off season.
  3. Which nhl players or folk have you met in person?

    Played road hockey against Kris Versteeg. Met Bieska, Tanner Glass, Hordichuk and Versteeg (again) at a Rick Rypein function in the Crowsnest Pass. Bieska was soooo nice. Otherwise just after game signings which don't really count!
  4. Faith in Benning

    Actually now that I am talking about it, the thing I liked lost about Benning is his draft knowledge. He seemed so right for a rebuild/retool/transition. But he has been giving away picks like a madman!!! Not only that but Bonino 15 goals, Matthias 18 goals, Richardson 13 goals, and Kassian 10 goals Where as now Prust 4 goals is the replacement? That's 52 goals lost and hoping the kids up and coming can make it up! Sounds like fingers are crossed. And I am a Benning supporter. Lol

    I agree. Like Sutter better than Bonino but to get Sutter we gave up a prospect and 2nd round! Will Sutter fetch that and more at trade deadline? Likely not. It will be a wash at best. Which means for a wash, Canucks took on more cap which could be spent else where.

    Sorry IPhone double post

    Not a fan of this trade! I have been defending Benning but man each Trade it gets harder and harder. Sutter had what 30pts last year? So really a swap for Bonino. Then we paid a second and Clendening for a third round? Plus Sutter makes $3 mil and Bonino make $1.7 Not a fan of the trade but do agree I like Sutter better than Bonino. This just didn't improve the team at all. Come on Benning. Wow us like last year.
  8. [Trade] Canucks trade for F Brandon sutter

    This didn't make the team better and I liked Clendening. Sitter had what 30pts last year? So really a swap for Bonino. Then we paid a second and Clendening for a third round? Plus Sutter makes $3 mil and Bonino make $1.7 Not a fan of the trade but do agree I like Sutter better than Bonino. This just didn't improve the team at all.

    1) Kassian did nothing for the team last year so anything Prust does is an improvement. Happy to see Kassian gone. 2) Sad to see Juice going but had to happen. Hope he wins the cup! 3) wouldn't have brought back Weber but can fill a depth role and pop in and out of the lineup as needed. 4) Happy with the younger Defensemen 5) The draft was not was I was expecting but it won't play out for a few years. Have to sit on that one. 6) Eddie Lack was going to get the best return. You could tell Benning tried for more but couldn't get more. 7) Canucks are getting younger. Fans want a change but whine and groan at every move. It's not so doom and gloom. In fact I see more young players challenging and taking spots
  10. [Signing] Canucks sign Matt Bartkowski

    $1.75 for 1 year. Decent signing. As slow and tough as Bieska for way less. And if we need to sit him a few games that's fine but sitting Bieska at 4.6 mil would be sooooo bad
  11. [Signing] Canucks sign Matt Bartkowski

    Whoot! What's the term and price?
  12. So can we assume A V wasn't the problem?

    You read my mind. Great post!
  13. [Report] Mike Gillis Fired

    Kinda scared by this. I liked Gillis and think ownership needs to back off and let him work. I will say that the Van organization is getting a bad rep. Deserved too due to the goalie fiasco, Torts losing his mind this year and what not. Getting rid of Gillis might signal a change to the league. A respected guy like Linden stepping into any role would do good. I was also wondering if Gillis was going to resign and ownership caught wind of it. If I was hired to manage a business and ownership kept getting in the way I would resign.
  14. [GDT] Vancouver Canucks vs Edmonton Oilers 7PM Jan 27th

    Burr! Feel so bad for him
  15. [GDT] Vancouver Canucks vs Edmonton Oilers 7PM Jan 27th

    Man frustrating watching games right now. This team makes me think they should be better but then watching a game I can't figure out what's wrong. Didn't Rangers have a tough time scoring under a Torts too?
