  1. Vancouver: D Ben Hutton, LW Sven Baertschi Toronto: RW Kasperi Kapanen (RFA), D Emilie Rasanen Toronto cuts cap space by getting cheaper replacements for Gardiner in Hutton and Kapanen in Baertschi who will demand considerably less to sign. Kapanen is looking at a a significant increase into the 4-5 mill range. Baertschi is a cheaper option tho a bit older. Gardiner (who has been pretty weak in the playoff 2 years in a row) is looking at imo 6-7mill for his offensive production in Free agency. Hutton is younger and can be had for much less than Gardiner. We get 2 younger players. Kapanen could jump into our top 6 right away as a 20G scorer. Rasanen is still a ways away but has promise for a big 6’7 RHD. @smithers joe fair proposal?

    Been waiting for this for years!

      Haven't gotten to listen to it yet.  Any chance I'll like it if I thought Revival was trash?

      I think most people thought Revival wasn’t great but this isn’t anything like it. This is Em going off on everyone. He goes hard af. Give it a listen. 

  3. Anywhere to watch the other rounds of the draft on TV?

    1. Pears


      Sportsnet has it

    2. johngould21


      Telus 911HD, I didn't realize it was being covered.

  4. So if we sign Hughes now can he play in the AHL next year?

      Thanks! Would love to see him in the A next year.

    3. Jaku


      Yes. But, he sounds pretty convinced he's going back to U-Mich. 

    4. Brad Marchand

      @Jaku From what he's said today, it actually seems like Hughes thinks he can play in the NHL next year. Wouldn't be at all surprised to see him turn pro.

  5. That’s one more gone from “The Sad Club”. Well deserved.

  6. Colton Parayko. What would it take to get him in the Canucks.

      Hey, not a bad idea, I just think he's one of those guys (like Ekblad, Seth Jones, Theodore, H. Lindholm) that is still young and too talented to be traded for anything less than a king's ransom. Doesn't mean we can't fantasize, particularly when we have a (incredibly raw and thoroughly reduced experience-wise) similar player currently biding his time in Russia that may be that sort of defenceman for us in the future

    3. Pears


      Probably a starting point of Juolevi+7th overall++. This dude is a beast in every aspect of the word. I think we’d have a better shot at prying Trouba away from Winnipeg via offer sheet. 

    4. Phil_314


      If we could find gems like Lind, Gadjovich, Demko, Corrado/ Hutton (lesser but still a success story) and Tree in later rounds I don't doubt that we could find a Parayko.

  7. Is Evan Bouchard AHL eligible next year? I see he has 3 juniors years under his belt already but I’m not sure if that qualifies him.

      Thanks for clearing that up

    3. luckylager


      Doubt he falls to us anyways, same with Boqvist. 


      We need Tram to come back and to score big on UFA's moving forward. 

    4. Quantum


      I think there's a chance that Bouchard falls to us. The Canadiens are supposedly very interested in Jesperi Kotkaniemi and may shock the hockey world by drafting him third overall. Similar to when CBJ selected Pierre Luc Dubois several spots ahead of where he was projected to be drafted. If that happens, it means Bouchard could slip. Also would guarantee the Canucks would have a chance to pick one of Bouchard, Hughes, or Boqvist -- full stop.

  8. This whitecaps game is BS. Officiating is horrendous in the MLS. 

    1. MJDDawg


      The red cards were probably deserved. Hands to the face by Juarez and throwing a player to the ground by Yordy. You can argue that the original call was blown but Russell got a yellow in the end so not much to argue.

  9. I can’t stand Don Cherry. He’s so freaking biased.

      He at least says what's on his mind, give the man a break he's like 85 years old.  He's the last of his kind, don't take it for granted 

    3. Rounoush


      I like Don.

    4. chon derry
  10. I like Edler and think he’s a good player. Not his fault that we play him as a #1 when he’s more of a 2nd pairing guy now. 

    Undervalued by our fan base

      I'm loving the physical side of his game returning since Gudbranson started playing with him.  He's not perfect but he's playing some of the best hockey of his career and ensuring the youth aren't playing minutes they can't handle.  Sbisa got ripped apart during his time here precisely because he was forced to play tougher minutes than he was ready for.  None of MDZ, Pouliot, or Hutton are ready to play those minutes without disastrous results.

    2. Nuxfanabroad


      Heffy..If memory serves, you & I were maybe 2 of AE's biggest critics. Agree with this Update, Eddie's done a huge turnaround, as of late.


      No more nicknames for the stick-breaker!

  11. Is that our new entrance music? Good lord it sounds like a broken record. Please just stop it

    1. Type R

      Type R

      Yeah, its pretty brutal.  I finally got to see the team for the first time this year playing Nashville, and my 7 year old told me the only thing worse than that game was the intro music

    2. Curmudgeon


      Yes. Yes. Yes. How do you sell a fast, exciting team with such a dreadful, atonal, non-melodic, uninspiring, vomit-inducing, hair curling, fingernails scraping down a chalkboard thumping that tells the world that Vancouver is one of those places Trump caught hell for describing as poop chutes?

  12. I had a nightmare yesterday that Vegas won the Stanley Cup and Edmonton won the Draft Lottery again.

      Rigged deck league. Sad

      Vegas doesn't deserve a cup. Ever.

  13. Revival sucks

      F**k the revival.

      That guest list alone is enough of a warning.  Haven't had a chance to give it a listen yet but not optimistic at all.

      It actually made me very depressed listening to it because I realized that my favourite artist is finally washed up and there’s no more youthful rage

  14. Eminem - Untouchable 


    personally I think it’s his worst song and just a bad song overall. 

    1. Alflives


      He’s got a good song?  :lol:

    2. Brad Marchand

      Brad Marchand

      The hook kinda kills it for me. Walk on Water isn't perfect, but it's better than Untouchable in that respect.

  15. Daniel Sedin scores his 1000 point, Canucks honor him before the game in Vancouver and these are the only 2 articles on TSN about it right now. 

    Cant stand TSN and Kadri is a gutless puke. 



    1. Jaku


      I'm pretty sure the T in TSN stands for Toronto. In all seriousness - they're all Leafs fans over there.
