  1. [GDT] 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    wow! yes!
  2. [GDT] 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Hughes...please
  3. [GDT] 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    do i dare dream? Zadina?
  4. Where are we now?

    Where are we now? In terms of qualifying for playoffs...in a much worse position now that the gilded Knights have a powerhouse team and more/better draft opportunities than the Canucks. I can't even allow myself to think about when the next expansion super-team is also in our playoff qualifying path.
  5. Put Thy $ Where The Mouth Is! ('18-19, good, or bad?)

    We will miss playoffs but will be in the wildcard hunt until the end...if, and only if...we get some free agent, trade or #1 draft help on the D-line. No D-man changes, draft lottery again.
  6. Adam Gaudette wins Hobey Baker

    Great! But more importantly...IMO, even in his limited appearances he shows great promise to excel in the NHL. I love what I see so far, and even if you only give him a modest upside that still could translate into a true foundational player.
  7. THIS IS THE DAY, Canucks get #7

    We have settled where we will be. Finish 6th from last and draft 9th in the first round. No savior at the entry draft, but hopefully we still get a solid NHL player. Or maybe this is the year that we defy the 7.5% odds and live the greatest moment in Canucks history? I am more excited each minute up to the lottery announcement...but somehow still expecting to be crestfallen after.
  8. Viking clap.. Our new cheer?

    Love the idea. Makes me wish someone would have thought of it earlier and it was used as a spontaneous fan tribute to the twins over all these years. Team cheer...sounds good...a great second best!
  9. Even if you are right, the name-calling is uncalled for and against forum rules. And all the vitriol just guarantees "the troll" will still keeping responding. I am just asking for people to take a big breath here.
  10. From a mod?? Unbelievable. Are you the arbitrator of what is appropriate time-and-place? Wait!...I guess you are. Please Deb...i don't necessarily agree with 890lbs, but the vitriol towards him is way over board. Don't join the chorus. It is just that person's opinion. This post is exactly where someone who is happy the Sedins are retiring should be able to say so...don't you think? Look at the title.
  11. For all of those slamming forum members that are expressing joy and/or hope regarding this announcement. Why you name calling? People are allowed their opinions and feelings and except in the most extenuating of circumstances it isn't rude to state them. This forum is not one of those circumstances. It is not disrespectful to comment on this post expressing joy of players departure, no matter how great the players were.
  12. Than You Henrik and Daniel, Amazing to watch your skill, courage, toughness, generosity, and humility over the years. I am sad you never got the Cup as a player. I am also sad to see you go, but looking forward to the future. You should be proud of your legacy.
  13. Yes or no to the Sedin’s next year?

    I have been back-and-forth in my own mind on this topic so many times this season. It really is a tough call; I tend to agree with most opinions on this topic, even if contradicting. Is it beneficial to re-sign them?...in the end the answer will come AFTER the decision, as many of the factors that matter here will not be determined until after training camp.
  14. Good job Clay. I like that you talk to each player directly...imagine if any of them see this! Do you think any ever will? I hope that of the ten roster spots you mentioned some are traded creating more spots for the likes of Pettersson, Gaudette, Dahlen and the five (six) you called out (as well as any young signings or generational draft picks that come along in the meantime). I am probably wishing for too much.
  15. Do you buy into what management is selling?

    What you are missing here is that it has already been three (almost four) years since TL&JB took over. The on-ice product is worse despite they claiming that a "turnaround will be quick" and that we will "be competitive" every season. So what you are really saying is be patient for at least 5 (6) years or screw off. I think that is unreasonable, and that it will be even more than 5 (6) years until this team is competitive (not all prospects will shine, still no defense hope). Add in that I have been waiting since June 2011 for a rebuild and still haven't seen it. I know that has nothing to do with this current management group, but it adds context to the criticism of impatience. I don't hate TL&JB, but it is apparent that they are not being effective. I don't see how that can be denied (and no, claiming our current prospect pool as proof of a good job doesn't cut it...those players have proved nothing yet). Furthermore...band-wagoners?! Do really believe that there are any band wagoners left on this board right now after three dismal seasons? Do you even know what that term means? I have been a fanatic of this team since 1974, through thick and thin. I have every right to be dissatisfied with the current on-ice product, seeming lack of strategy this mgmt group displays, and our meager relative number of good prospects and future draft picks. I will still be here in two years after it has been bad even longer. Will you?
