      Grabner has turned out to be a decent middle six guy. I agree with Art, Gillis wasn't a great drafter. 

    3. Darkstar


      Gaunce added to that list.

      I firmly believe that is Hodgson hadn't had such a dick head for a father and stayed a Canuck, he would have turned into a 60-70 pt player. Vancouver would have had the strongest center depth in the league. 

  2. the years go by faster and faster once get a little older

      life's like a dong, the harder it get the longer it feels.  Or is it the longer it gets the harder it feels?  Either or.

  3. If Bo and others can step up this year the Twins could be deadly in a secondary scoring role

  4. Yo who else plays OSRS msg me if you do

      Talbot wasn't a starter until he was 27. Brian Elliot is 32. Rinne is 34. A lot of goalies have strong play in their 30's. 

    3. ken kaniff

      Lot of goalies don't get into the NHL until their late 20s anyways. Garteig can still make it as a backup atleast.

    4. PunjabiCanucks


      Not saying Demko will be the next Roy or Brodeur, but I do say he will be the next big thing since Murray in terms of goalies

  9. From someone who watches Vilardi, how good is he? His numbers don't really pop out at me. I watched him in mem cup but thats my first taste of him

    1. Rob_Zepp


      He is ok - but no Glass.

  11. A strong KHL is good for hockey as a whole 

  12. I always wonder what Salo coulda been been without the injuries

  13. I dont think the NHL is rigged but damn thats a sketchy draft

  14. I don't even know how to feel. I am so conflicted as to what the best move at 5 is now..

    1. Jaku


      Try to trade up? 

    2. King Heffy

      King Heffy

      Either trade up to # 2 or package the pick for a young center.

      He's real for the bad stuff. Sorry for your losses. I remember when my grandpa stopped recognizing me. It sucks, and I can't imagine how it felt for his wife and kids. The mind is so fragile it's frightening.

    3. MJDDawg


      Sorry for your losses. Lean on your family and friends for support.

      i can understand your pain. i've worked with several people with dementia. i watched them sink into the lost world. if there is a silver lining, it is that, they don't know that where they are,  is not the place, they last knew. 

      one lady in the home where i worked, had her husband commit suicide and her son killed in a car accident. neither of which she could process in her mind. sad stuff but the results, some of us will experience at some point. you have to try and remember them, back when they were healthy. 

  16. The last AHL coach the Canucks promoted from their farm team was Vigneault, that worked out pretty good..

      Good point OP. I don't know what the "holdup" is, if there even is one, they may be looking hiring some assistants for Green and want to announce the whole new group at once. They could be waiting post lotto as well incase we drop to 5th again and want to have some good news. 

    3. RRypien37


      Crow HC, Green AC. 

    4. WeneedLumme


      At the time, AV had already had NHL head coaching experience, including a Jack Adams nomination. Kind of a big difference, no?

  17. If Glen Murray can score 92 points in a season 70 is not certainly not outta the question for Bo

  18. Damn I think we picked an off year to get a top 3 pick.

      @Chip Kelly 

      Patrick looks like Getzlaf

      Vilardi looks like Spezza

      Hischier has drawn comparisons to Datsyuk 


      Of the three, I think Patrick will be the best, Vilardi second best and Hischier will be alright. Don't think he reaches Datsyuk-level production ever. 


      I want Patrick or Vilardi and if they're off the board by the time we pick(unlikely unless we have terrible luck) then we should pick Liljegren. 

    3. Chip Kelly

      Chip Kelly

      @morrissex95 Patrick will probably bust and another d man would be a bad pick. If you are picking top 5 you expect an NHL ready player in 2 years or less not 3 years like most d men take.


      It 100% has to be an offensive center drafted that is a bigger need than offensive d man right now.

    4. morrissex95


      Maybe we could trade Tanev to Buffalo for their first rounder and take Liljegren with that pick. Call me crazy. I think they'd go for it.

      They earned the nickname Toronto Sports Network for a reason.


      Every national sports media outlet panders to Toronto. I hate it, but it's how they generate ratings and profit.

      Leafsnet and Toronto Sports Network.

      Better than 1040. Sponsernet. Where we suck up to our corporate overlords. 

  21. 2012 draft was just god awful

      @Alflives you are never required waivers when going from AHL to NHL (anymore). When players Start requiring waivers is very dependant on when they signed their ELC, and the time that passes/games played in the NHL. Their is a chart this...https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/NHL_salary_cap#Exemptions (about 1/2 way down)


      For example: McDavid will require waivers at 160 games played (during ELC) but Gaunce will require waivers next season because it will be 5 years after he signed his ELC.  

    3. zzbottom


      Watch McCann be a waiver pickup in 3 years.

      i like that jb is prepared to move on any player

      whether he drafted the player or not

      when he sees how that player's development is progressing and begins to have concerns

      granlund was obtained for shink when it was becoming clear shink had more limits than upside

      mccann maybe prove to have similar limits and was moved for gud (who we still have not really had enough games to assess him. but at least he brings size, some leadership, and was well liked by his former teammates)

  23. Footy fans, Dybala Juve or Griezmann Atletico kit?

  24. MLS has taken a tremendous step with their DP signings this year, 10-15yrs and MLS will be a top 7 league in the world. I know people will say there is no Europe to play in. or History but the US is a desirable location for any person in the world.
