  1. [Confirmed] Jim Benning signs as new Canucks GM

    Don't get me wrong, I love the Sedins, but Jagr is in an entirely different league. I don't think either of the Sedins could play at his age and continue to produce at his level.
  2. CDSF: (1) Colorado Avalanche vs (4) Minnesota Wild

    Late to the Game, but I just saw the Matt Cooke knee online. I'm shocked. I read a statement from him earlier that he was getting ready to shut down the Avs top line. That doesn't denote gooning it up. His history speaks for itself. The NHL should suspend him from 10 games or more. He clearly has an intent to injure and even if he we call it carelessness...just ask Marc Savard what carelessness can cause. Sorry, I'm just mad.
  3. ADSF: (2) Tampa Bay Lightning vs (3) Montreal Canadiens

    Speaking to Apollo's comment about Torts forcing Weise out. Dregger tweeted this: Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I thought this was the right place. Thoughts?
  4. [Report] Mike Gillis Fired

    Seriously though, like many of you are saying: If Jim Feaster is hired... I don't even want to think about it. He completely mangled the Flames. He should not be given the opportunity to do the same here.
  5. [Report] Mike Gillis Fired

    Agreed! Personally, I didn't think firing Gillis was the best move. I would've given him the summer to correct our failings... BUT that said - No more of this 'reset' rhetoric. This team needs to be completely retooled. And a new GM will be distant enough from the organization's past decisions as to move players, perhaps even those with NTC's. Change is coming. Buckle up.
  6. The Leafs Choking Again

    I have the opposite view. I desperately want the cup to return to Canada...just not with the Habs. I live in Montreal, and their fans are the worst when it comes to this topic. I have friends who have gone on record to say they'd rather an American team win than a Canadian team...not for the separatist dribble youd imagine, but because they hate the idea that another team would be "the last Canadian team to win a cup". Still clinging to 1993. Not to mention the whole 24 Stanley Cups argument as a rebuttal against everything. Ughhh I hate Habs fans... I'd even rather Toronto win a cup.
  7. [PGT] Meltdown/Collapse

    What I absolutely cannot stand about claims that these players were "steals" given they fell from their projected positions is this: Perhaps other teams passed up on them because they're simply not good enough. This is true of Schroeder (although I'll admit his injury woes have hampered his development) and this is probably true of Gaunce. I also cannot stand when Gillis says: "We've had our eyes on this guy for a while now" in response to almost every move he makes. (Roy, Dalpe, etc.) GMMG - Please get your eye's checked! Sincerely, a shocked, exasperated fan.
  8. Letter from Mike Gillis to Canucks STH

    "Re-tooling". I'm sorry, but if last game is any indication, what is needed here goes far beyond that. Gillis, followed by the entire scouting staff need to be replaced. Give Torts a chance. Write a letter to ticket holders, but indicate that a rebuild is coming. I'm no season ticket holder, but I can imagine that phrasing it in this way would at least indicate there was some kind of plan. Gillis doesn't inspire a ton of confidence from any segment of the fan base right now.
  9. The lack of secondary scoring is so glaring...

    Typical Canucks nostalgia and revisionism. Typical because it's necessary: it's all we have. Such passionate fans, and zero success. Being a fan of this team is painful. I don't care if we had a great run in 2011. It's 2013, and we need to think about the future. Albert Einstein once wrote that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Via this criteria, Gillis is clearly insane. I've thought this for a while, and I hate to be the guy to call blow up, but this team needs to be dismantled. Keep the Sedins, but blow up the rest of it. The idea of idling in mediocrity as a bubble team for the next few years makes me cringe. I'd rather be absolutely horrible, and wait patiently for the kind of renaissance that teams like Colorado are enjoying. The only way to get that is to get top 5 picks. The only way. We are not Detroit. If I were Ken Holland, I'd be insulted to have Mike Gillis compared with me.
  10. Linden For Gm

    Watching the sens game, and CBC pans to Messier after the rangers score. Seeing that smirk on his face....makes my blood boil....keep that man far, far away from our city and our franchise. He did enough damage and he can go rot in NYC (which speaks to the fact that life is unfair, NYC is an amazing place to be/live--but I digress).
