  1. Daniel Sedin: All Time Canucks goal scorer

    Did anyone grab the puck for Daniel...?
  2. It's time to give Bo the 'A'

    Personally I don't like the idea of young players getting C's or A's. Look at it from a players perspective; if you were a 30+ year old player on the team and there's a 21 year old wearing the "A" or "C" ahead of you, how would that make you feel? You're a guy that has a family and commitments and responsibilities, and yet, you have to listen to a guy that's 10 years younger whose mother probably still cooks for him and he's essentially your leader. It creates awkwardness and possibly dysfunction amongst a team. IMO to earn a C there's 3 conditions. 1. You have to be a certain age and responsible/mature enough to lead a team 2. You have to have been on the team for an amount of years, probs 2-4 years. Can't just sign a FA and hand him the C right away 3. You obviously can't be a plug In Horvat's situation there's really nothing different. Yea it looks good on him for the fans he's a big piece to our future. But to just strip the "A" off of Burrows would be disgraceful not only to him but to other guys like Edler, Hamhuis, Vrbata, Hansen, Sutter, and even Tanev granted some of them may not be on the team next year. Horvat's definitely not a plug and he'll have been around long enough at the start of next year IMO, but as he matures and ages he'll eventually earn it, so there's absolutely no rush.
  3. Yeah but we also lose a first round pick. Though it was kinda wasted anyway lol.
  4. ** Always Best Player Available **

    This applies for the NHL especially. In the NBA and especially the NFL, players get drafted and play right away. In the NHL guys take much longer to develop and you'll have no idea what your team looks like or what your needs are by the end of his development. so tbh imo BPA is the way to go.
  5. Lol people bashing Higgins even though he didn't even play...

  9. VAN-TB [Proposal]

    Drouin's a 3rd overall pick and it's not like he's busted out. I'd for sure trade him for this year's first and Baertschi.

    Any delay would be very obvious. I timed Hansen in comparison as well and his time was a correct 14.3. Watch for yourself as I've said not replying anymore to this thread lol

    Not dissing Pedan or anyone's excitement bout him. Just pointing out the error and misconceptions. It's not as if I was hoping to see him skate slower than advertised. As for his play though, if he and Hutton continue playing up to expectations it'd really transform a very weak defensive prospect pool into a partially promising one. I'd be happy if he ends up as a 2nd/top end 3rd pairing guy. His physical attributes and playing style remind me of an even bigger Zach Bogosian which is great to see, or a Luca Sbisa, depending on how his development turns out.

    Time it yourself like I said haha You can see for yourself. I'll just assume you figured I'm right so no need for a reply lol
