  1. Scenario crossed my mind today.  Canucks miss playoffs, Benning is out, new GM trades Boeser (best trade chip) for top D-man, ships out Meyers for picks and signs Barrie.  Sutter and Rousell also moved, as is Erickson (thanks to cap raising) and Bennings junior squad work their way up to big club.  Toffoli and Marky obviously resigned.  Am I way off here?  Hope they make the playoffs.

      Canucks are getting into the 2020 playoffs, going on a fantastic playoff run, and winning the Stanley Cup.  :lol:

      Yes that would be reactionary and unwarranted. 

  2. Plays a heart and soul game and leaves it all out on the ice. Great community leader, good spokesperson, and leads by example.. Terrible captain??
  3. Jakes going to crack 20 goals, I'm quite happy with the role he's taken.
  4. Feeling conflicted.. Go Oil, or Go Vegas?

      I decided to take Vegas for tonight, I wanna see the Edmonton broadcast crew and their fans hurt, it feels soo-oo- oo good!

      Vegas scores!   Play by play guy sounds like he's delivering a eulogy.

  5. Anyone else feel a 4-3 victory coming on?

      Haha, I can't see that far ahead.  But after the Bruins game, and the push back against Montreal today, I do see playoffs this year.. Its a resilient team, the have it in them.

      Well played

      Perfectly-prophetic! & 2 snipes on the PP

  6. Late mentioning this, but had my BDay last week.  Wifey came through with a Pettersen Jersey, and close friends of ours gifted me tickets to take her to see the Nucks play Winnipeg on the 15th! My only game of the year (we live on the island).  I am blessed!

      I wish lol!  

  7. Its possible, but not likely. That said, for some reason I'm looking at tonights matchup as a barometer for where the team is at. If they come out and play, and its a tight game, that would say a lot!!
  8. Is it just me, or is the fact that it was Schaller moved instead of Baertschi a total indictment on what little value Sven has left

      It wouldn't be value, but contract. Would have been amazing if we moved Sven in that deal as it'd free up cap for next season.

      I wonder if Benning gives him another shot.

      There's a spot available on LW.

    4. Alflives


      Baer has negative value.  He’s finishing this contract in the AHL.  The cost in sweetener to dump him would be way too high.  

  9. NJ already has an undersized C, I can't see them chasing another. I'm not in a rush to chase Madden out of here, we may need him yet as Sutter continues to age, and becomes tougher to offload, same with Beagle.
  10. Who would do a Boeser for Dumba hockey trade?  Don't get me wrong, Boes is one of my favourite players, but this team needs an upgrade on D, and Dumba is still relatively young at 25.

      That’s not what I heard he he said.  He clearly said, from what I remember, Bess was of more value than Dumba for us to make that deal.

      you need to look up the interview again.  

    3. mll


      It's in writing.  I would consider it. I’m a huge Dumba fan but I don’t think (Vancouver) would.

    4. Alflives


      That’s not the full quote.   He further states that we don’t do the trade because Bess has more value.   You might need to look again. ::D

  11. Heard someone say today that this would mean, if you someone hits you, and you have to make a claim, both peoples rates go up from it.
  12. The last couple of games have been an eye opener for this team and its fanbase.  What we saw in Caronlina and Boston was playoff hockey folks.  Refs putting away the whistles and letting them play.  This team is getting a taste of whats to come, I hope they learn as they go.

      the non call on petey is not playoff hockey, "folks".

      haha ohh gotchya

  13. I don't believe we have had a healthy Ferland. I have a funny feeling, as we role into the playoff season, Ferland will come up and will be able to make a difference for us, same with Leivo. There is potential for a perfect storm that may see this team make it to the 3rd round!
  14. If we could just get one more Miller I think this team would be a force (not that it isn't already). I love his tenacity, and his work ethic is unmatched.
