  1. Putting all the NTC and loyalty stuff aside, Id be ok with Edler and a 2nd for Drouin and Carle. More than enough value for Drouin while not burdening either team with an excess/absence of cap or players. We all agree than Tanev and Hutton would just be bad news and that only leaves Edler. At least with Carle we would be getting a serviceable guy back. This would also put us in a position to focus on selling for defense primarily if we are sellers at the deadline.
  2. I wouldnt say we are out of the playoff hunt yet. We could easily be second in the pacific with a couple of overtime wins instead of losses. That and we have been playing well and are soon to have healthy lineup.
  3. Why is it so hard to believe JB expects us to be a playoff team next year when he expects us to be a playoff team this year?
  4. I think it really all depends on the timeline of the rebuild. JB's m.o so far has been to up cycle youth for youth thats either closer to being ready or already with a taste. It shouldnt come as a shock that JB has stated he is not interested in tanking. I dont think it because he hates the idea but instead isnt interested in a long winded 5+ year back to relevancy. I think its perfectly acceptable that JB would move a 2017 first in a deal for youth now. Barring an extremely high first in 2017, the chances of that pick being relevant before 2020 are almost non existent. I have a feeling JB plans on being young and relevant long before that.
  5. I have to wonder if the French Connection in MTL is all that there behind the rumor to MTL. Just like whenever someone from BC is on the block the rumors to Vancouver explode out of nowhere.
  6. This would be such a stupid move on the part of MTL. My dad would lose his shirt. He would drive to MTL and start a riot. Drouin could only hope to become half the player of Gallagher at this point. Does MTL not want to make the playoffs because thats how you dont make the playoffs.
  7. Im not sure Drouin really offers MTL all this scoring help they need. Drouin hasnt exactly be a scoring machine this season and is probably down in the AHL for a reason. Considering the cost will probably almost have to include someone who can acrue point's, then what are they gaining. Maybe though its an all futures type deal when MTL doesn't touch their roster to make it work but I still don't see how Drouin suddenly helps them score. A guy like Vrbata could be had for a fraction of the cost, allow them to unload someone whos eating salary and not working for them and stand a way bigger chance of actually helping them. I just cant see Droin all of a sudden bringing MTL back into the limelight.
  8. I wont name names : P but some guys were throwing around Vrbata's name. Funny afternoon.

    Exactly. To take it a step further I would say is he needs to be in the AHL. But he cant and the big club is probably the next best thing.
  10. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    Im a bit of a conspiracy theorist myself but my theory begins and ends with - as long as the NHL is concerned with money and nothing else = a canadian team will never win the cup : P

    I think it more of a situation where they feel his offensive talents will take care of themselves. He need's to think the NHL game, a point hes not at yet. I think they feel that once hes finally up to speed at the NHL level that his skill will take over from there. Scoring 250 goals in the WHL might sure look nice on paper but I highly doubt that will help him think the NHL game, which is pretty obvious what he needs to work on. He needs to work on his maturity as well and I think being around guys like Hank and Dank will go a lot further than being around a bunch of other kids who probably have their own maturity isses.

    P.S. I'd like to see an advanced stat that proves reputation has any outcome on a hockey game.
  13. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    Lots of tough decisions to be made that's for sure. God love the twins but lets be real here. We went to the finals because of a lot more than just hank and dank. There is a reason Burrows wears an A. Love him or hate him, he's a Canuck. I expect he will be one of the last to go. Part in due to his salary which he is basically owed. Part because he's still useful whether you accept it or. He can probably fill a spot on the fourth line and PK for a couple more years. He's the kind of guy that would do just that and not complain either. It's easy to label him for his mistakes, especially by the reddit generation with attention spans of about seven seconds, but he slays dragons, whether you like it or not.

    Burrows got paid a lot of money to do these things. What's your excuse for being a joke?
  15. I expect at the very least Benning has inquired. This has Benning MO all over it. Prospect closer to ready than not.
