  1. True wild card. His size makes it all the more appealing. If he works out. Wow a beast. If not, he goes back to khl and we lost out on a 3rd(?) rd pick. Whoppity doo. Great asset management is just starting. I like how benning and linden are working in tandem.
  2. Brian Lawton and nick kyprios as "analysts" makes me laugh. Ladd would be nice here. But if the Jets want a huge return( and they would) we shouldn't touch it. That being said.. When has MG EVER looked at overpaying for a player? Finally with prospects in the system looking good and Lawton/kyper says it's time to buy? Sell the farm for this run? Whatever they smoke before Connected must be epic.
  3. As much as Booth has potential, it has never translated onto the ice for the Canucks. He had one great season in Florida playing a very different system then we do here. Sadly, potential doesn't make a player great and who knows what his mental ability/confidence is at. In my personal opinion he has shown flashes of the form he had in Florida, but it has come few and far between. He has had two different coaches who both have sat him due to lack of production and not following the coaches system. Plus the multiple injuries constantly setting him back have certainly given him no help. I liked what booth was supposed to bring when the trade occurred. But it simply has not materialized and with his salary being what it is, the team could put that to much better use than on a player sitting upstairs. In his defence, he has tried to change himself to fit into the system, but I just do not see 'enough' of a change. He falls into old habits quickly and I question his hockey sense while watching his game. Since his game has been in such a state of flux for so long I cannot see a trade occurring unless we take on salary or lose a piece we perhaps don't want to move. A buyout is most likely and I see a team taking a shot at him in the off season at a very reduced rate. I could be 100% wrong on all accounts here but this is my opinion.
  4. Would jarko even report?
  5. Who is the idiot saying we need to trade Horvat and shinkaruk?
  6. If you try and make every contract a steal, you will end up with nobody on the roster. Much like the way this organization was run before MG got here. Give to get is the way. He has convinced top end talent to sign here for less than market value and instilled a environment of winning & accountability. I would much rather have Booth over Sturm & Samuelsson. And yes, Ballard over Mitchell. Willie was given a contract, but it is not MG's fault that LA targeted him and offered him a larger contract. A couple of million dollars is hard to turn down. So what is the complaint? You don't like lou's contract? Get in line. There are many on here who do not. Yet few remember that both the team and the player have outs in said contract if things are not 'working out'. Fact of the matter is, MG has done more for this team moving forward than Nonis or Burke has ( not saying that they did nothing, but not as much). And if not Mike Gillis, I would like to hear who your replacement idea is.
  7. He has looked good all preseason IMO. Naturally a few rookie mistakes, but his skill set has a huge upside to it, and I could see him pushing for a top six winger.. If not this year, the next.
