  1. Happy for MAF but he'll be 34 in November. LV probably could have waited it out to see how next year goes. It's not like he's going to turn down 3 x $7M at the All Star break even if he is having another stellar season. Ah well, good for Fleury
  2. While I was part of the group of people that was a bit disappointed that Gaudette didn't show a scoring touch in his brief stint with us last season, I think for the most part this fan base is well aware that these kids are going to have their ups and downs and they're more than ok living with the downs that will surely come. IMO it's been our coaches over the last handful of seasons that have been reluctant to roll with the youth. Maybe it was the failed experiment of Virtanen and McCann? But I really hope our coaches/mamagement stick to their word and play the kids and I'm not talking about Brock or even Petterson if he kicks down the door right out of the gate. It's easy to play a kid when he's a star. I'm talking about Goldobin, Gaudette, Leipsic, Boucher, Dahlen and anyone else knocking on the door. These kids aren't going to have the same effect that Brock had right out the gate. Is Travis going to throw them back out there after a mistake if they aren't scoring like Brock? I don't know...
  3. Sam Gagner, why the hate?

  4. Sam Gagner, why the hate?

    I wouldn't say it was unrealistic for Canucks fans to expect him to put up a few more points than he did, given he scored 50 points the year before. That's a 38% drop in production, so there's some validity to their disappointment, even if it may have been a long shot for Gagner to have a repeat season like that. I think the real reason most Canucks fans don't care for 2 more years of Gagner is because he's easily replaceable and we have several young players eagerly waiting in the wings. So I think Gagner will likely see plenty of time in the pressbox this year if things go as planned, as he's not really needed. I think we can all agree that we'd rather see any of Gaudette, Leipsic, Goldobin, Pettersson, Dahlen, hell even Reid Boucher over Sam Gagner. The future is now.
  5. Understatement of the year. Now a days, you want all of your young core players locked up long term coming off their ELC and then by the time their 2nd contracts are up, you think about moving them out the door for what's hopefully the new wave of players. But it's that 3rd contract that almost always comes back to bite you. It's a young man's game.
  6. The poster in me wants to tell you to eat $#!+ , but the nerd in me wants to click the link. I'm really at a crossroad here
  7. Wrong. Here comes the part where we encourage you to learn what a run on sentence is. I've also attached an image for you to familiarize yourself with. Cheers
  8. Why are you doing these things?
  9. Hey man, for a guy that no longer wants to be part of your organization...that's a haul! Sergachev is probably the most valuable (trade wise) defenseman in the league 20 & under.
  10. That's one way to look at it but you can't just ignore things like his injury history, the report of his unwillingness to discuss re-signing with anyone but TBay. The fact that he wants out...he's forcing a trade. None of these things increase his value. Essentially, he's ripe for the picking. Another Ottawa Senator that wants out (Heatley, Spezza). You don't win these trades in the short term.
  11. Mmmhmm. Ottawa is in the middle of perhaps the fastest cultural reset in NHL history. They might come out winners 3, 4, 5 years down the road but I don't think they're gonna look like winners the day of the deal.
  12. Oh, I don't doubt that. But with the game changing and how much value gets placed on young, cost controlable players (especially defensemen), I just think it's one or the other (Sergachev vs Point). The rest can be made up with draft picks and prospects. Do you really think Ottawa isn't going to take a package of Sergachev + 2019 1st round pick + one of their top prospects? That's an insane haul. When was the last time a team traded that much for 1 player?
  13. [Signing] Red Wings re-sign Andreas Athanasiou

    They were talking about him on sportsnet 650 today, as the type of player that we should be targeting given our current roster logjam. They were suggesting a 2 or 3 for 1 kind of deal (Raymond, Ballard and 1st ).
  14. Even that would be a massive haul for Ottawa. I think it'll be less than that.
  15. Wow massive overpayment. Sergachev + Point +?? I don't think Ottawa's gonna come out looking nearly that good. They need to make a trade.
