  1. Canucks EA Rankings 2018

    If Guddy and Hutton had their ratings switched I'd agree with all of them.
  2. Canucks EA Rankings 2018

    I think they were 88 when the game came out last year. Probably 85ish this year. Got me sold.
  3. Canucks EA Rankings 2018

    Summer, not much Canucks news going on other than people pretending they know why Trevor is no longer with the team. Looking at something more lighthearted, here are the upcoming Canuck rankings from EA sports. Thoughts? Forwards I think is accurate. D, pretty good but I don't think Biega is better than Gudbranson. Goalies, top prospects could be a strength since Demko did so well at lower levels.
  4. What would it take for the Canucks to make the playoffs. Some things that would help: - Obviously, a lot of young players taking a big step forward. Especially in the goal scoring department. - Winning a trade, and not a we got a decent guy like Baertschi. Win a big trade where like Tampa with Sergachev. - No key injuries - Improved coaching - Improved goaltending - Finally, there's a lot of potential for bad teams here Vegas could fall off LA getting old Anaheim also some of their key guys past their prime Calgary is a wildcard, could stink Edmonton same thing Arizona can only get so much better since last season. If our division stinks, it will mean extra points for us. However, it took 95 points to get into the playoffs in the West last year. So Vancouver needs around a 22 point improvement. Not going to happen, but if it does it should be a thrilling ride because it would mean some of our guys playing amazing.
  5. Will we finish higher or lower in the standings?

    I think marginally better.
  6. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Tried debating. Guy won't admit he's wrong even facts are staring him in the face. Always asks me to quote him, then when I waste time and find his stupid quotes from a year or two ago he doesn't bother responding.
  7. Trevor Linden stepping down as President - Confirmed

    I find on CDC if you have a criticism of the team/players or especially of Benning you're called a troll. On HF it's the exact opposite, it's much more negative towards the team/Benning. On reddit it's a fine balance.
  8. Hey 3.49% of Canuck fans that don't want him back. Explain your decision.
  9. Trevor Linden stepping down as President - Confirmed

    Might have something to do with being the worst team in the meantime. I do what I can.
  10. Trevor Linden stepping down as President - Confirmed

    Nice try, but no. Certain draft picks? I only trash the Virtanen pick. As far as trashing management, sorry but that's the mainstream. The subculture are the ones that are still die hard supporters of Benning & ownership.
  11. Thank You Jim Benning.

    You do have to pay extra when you're a bottom feeder and want high quality bottom 6 in free agency. I defended the signings, I think they're fine but they could impact contracts in the future. The question was, what's the problem with these signings. There are potential problems, these aren't perfect contracts. If these things are easy to accomplish why haven't we done them in 4 years. Pretty sure every team values the players they just drafted.
  12. Thank You Jim Benning.

    What? Other GM's don't know what type of players they need to fill their rosters?
  13. Thank You Jim Benning.

    It's not if they improve or not. It's to do with a trickle down effect on the whole team. If one guy is getting paid too much, other players want generous contracts as well if they're equal to him or outperforming him. You can't pay everyone well in the cap era.
  14. Trevor Linden stepping down as President - Confirmed

    Sportsnet reported that Linden wanted a more long term rebuild plan and ownership wanted to compete soon. Ottawa is taking bad ownership and situation to epic levels, just because we're not as bad as them doesn't make our meddling ownership situation good. I'm just a guy that was pro tanking because I think you need high picks to build a championship team. Though apparently that makes me part of the "toxic subculture." Which is cool, I didn't even know I was part of a subculture. Though, as part of the toxic subculture, I have to say that I don't live for this type of situation. Apparently, Linden was the one guy fighting for a "traditional" rebuild so I'm not happy about him leaving.
