  1. Daniel is tied with Elias third overall for regular season OT goals (16) behind only Jagr (19) and Ovechkin (22). Ahead of Sundin, Hossa, Fedorov, and Kovalchuk. Of course regular season OT wasn't introduced until the year the Sedins were drafted (1999). Burrows has 1 in his career and Kesler 5. Edit: regular season OT was introduced in 1983. It went to a 4 on 4 when the Sedins joined the league. In the playoffs among all Canucks Burrows is tied for first with Greg Adams for OT goals at 3 and Henrik is tied at 2nd with Ronning at 2. Both Bure and Linden only had 1 each as Canucks. Bure had 3 in his career and Linden just the 1. Sakic is is the all time NHL leader with 8 two ahead of Rocket Richard. Gretzky had 4 in his career. Interesting that Messier and Lemieux never scored an overtime goal in the playoffs.
  2. Trading for a prospect is rebuilding is it not? Are you ok with the 2nd for Baertschi? Most here consider a first round exit a total failure, if it's the Canucks that is. Trading a second for that complete failure is Shanny being smart.
  3. Is trading for a rental the same thing as trading for a prospect? Is it the same expectation?
  4. A little early to be hitting the bottle isn't it Alf?

    I agree with ice time being relative to role and play. But the op specifically said those two would be competing for 3rd line spots. I'm sure you'll agree it's safe to say 3rd line gets more ice time, and a bigger role, than 4th line. I think at best Gaunce and Archibald will be competing with each other for the pressbox (13th forward). I highly doubt, barring preseason injuries, either will even make the cut and be on will be waivers before the season starts.
  6. [Poll] Logjam on Defense

    How to deal with a logjam....
  7. You tankers keep preaching draft picks, draft picks, draft picks. Are there more than 3 Shanny draft picks making an impact for the Leafs contributing to their turnaround? Please name them as I'm not seeing it.
  8. Wait are you saying I'm lying that 3 draft picks turned their team around? Who else is on their roster making an impact that Shanny drafted that I've missed? It's nice to have prospects in other leagues, every team has those, but they haven't contributed to their NHL turnaround these past four years. Until they do hit the NHL they are just prospects and several won't make it. Just as I expect several of ours won't. Not every drafted player makes an NHL career never mind makes an impact.
  9. What straws am I clutching at? Are there more than 3 Shanny draft picks contributing to their turnaround?
  10. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    So 10 top 5 picks. Meaning a decade at the bottom. Which also means the first one is 28 when the last one is drafted. Good luck with that.
  11. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    I don't think they actually know what they want.
  12. Actually it's their Shanny rebuild that comes down just 3 draft picks. Doesn't sound like he really had much to do....
  13. Is there a difference in leadership?

    More often than not - yes.
  14. Will we finish higher or lower in the standings?

    Yes, I do think we'll finish higher or lower.

    If Gaunce and Archibald are in the running for 3rd line this team is really in trouble.
