  1. A competent 3rd line center thats good on the PK and a role player has value, he's just redundant and a bit expensive for here. I agree, buying out Erickssons contract doesn't make sense, but it boils down to how badly they need the space.
  2. Nope nope nope. Sutter has value, there will be a team that bites on him. Eriksson may need to be bought out, and so be it. This team is getting closer and closer to getting into playoff contention, and as it does, it will also be receiving worse and worse draft picks, so giving up our higher end talent now slows down our momentum. I see Podkolzin as a lock for our top 6, and will help complete the upcoming core.
  3. My bosses sister ran into Connor McDavid on a golf course in Ontario, and apparently he said to her that he doesn't think they are returning to the ice for the play-ins..

      It was probably the Idylwylde in Sudbury.  My buddy golfs there and ran into Draisaitl.  McDavid's girl friend is from Suds too.

      What I dont know is when this happened.  But has the players association agreed to this yet?

  4. Apparently she hit a tree as she ejected, and the other fellow hit the roof of a home and is in critical condition.
  5. Woops lol I was going to put Tanev at 4.5
  6. I jumped on the $30 sportchek jersey sale, picked up Horvat and Boeser for myself and a Boeser for the mrs.  They just arrived, nice quality, not as nice as the real ones but I won't want to die if I get it dirty lol.  The tags on the jersey show 189.95

      @goalie13 i bought an EP40 authentic - the key difference is the emblem on the front is different(authentic is gold / replica is silver) and the name tag on the back looks better. Also authentic jerseys have the tie-down strap.  Again for $30 not a huge deal but i don't like getting duped on the internet.  If they said it's authentic it should be - it's not a marketing line(it's a marketing lieB))

      This was a great deal... I've never seen mark downs that low 189 to 30 is stellar.


      It's probably as close as you'll get to the cost of the jersey to adidas to make.


      I was gonna bite and grab one myself too but I seriously don't have anywhere to hang more jerseys lol...

  7. I'm not very familiar with the cap situation, but by my estimation, it will take a minimum of $16m to get all 3 back even if Tanev and Marky take a bit of a discount to stay. 5.5 for Marky 3.5 Tanev and 6 for Toffoli and I can't see Tanev taking that much of a discount. If Benning feels Tanev has more healthy years left (and he did great this year imo) then I can see him shedding Ben and Stetcher to afford him, and utilizing our Utica depth more next year.
  8. 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. 

  9. 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??
  10. Jakes going to crack 20 goals, I'm quite happy with the role he's taken.
  11. Feeling conflicted.. Go Oil, or Go Vegas?

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

  12. 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.
