  1. He's definitely cementing his place as one of our top checkers going forward. Love his tenacity and energy.
  2. Hope Muzzin is alright...

    1. Nuxfanabroad


      That was a strange injury, considering all the heavy hits that don't take guys out.

      One of the few Leafs I like.  Gotta feel bad for him.

    3. Bell


      That really didn't look good.  As Heffy said he is one of the few decent leafs.  Get well big man.

  3. His passing and vision are I think his best skills. Having him complement Hughes (and Rathbone) will give us a ton of different looks on LD for years to come.
  4. If he absolutely tears it up next year then I'd say he'd be ready for the NHL the year after but that's best case scenario. More likely he'll see a handful of games next year as injury relief and start to make a push for some NHL time in 2-3 years. He's a highly talented, somewhat raw goalie with a lot of room to grow with coaching still as opposed to Demko who is a highly technical (and also talented) goalie.
  5. I guess it's a good thing that we have guys like Pettersson, Boeser, Horvat, Gaudette, & Miller for Rathbone to pass the puck to
  6. So.... Did Rathbone go UFA and sign with the Bruins yet?
  7. It's an interesting upper body workout but undeniably effective.
  8. I have no worries about Juolevi's development. We don't NEED him on the team until Edler is gone, as he's a similar kind of player who will thrive playing minutes complementary to Hughes. Between the two of them and Rathbone I see our left side top 4 D anchored for the next 5 years.
  9. Yep, how dare he add Miller and Toffoli to the roster in addition to Pearson, Myers, Roussel. At the exorbitant cost of Gudbranson, 1st, 2nd, Madden, and some available cap space. Real terrible position he put us in there. Especially when you factor in that he's given us an awful, unspectacular, unremarkable pipeline of youth at all positions looking forward to the next 5 years. (Podkolzin, Hoglander, Lind, Woo, Rathbone, Juolevi, Rafferty, DiPietro...) Can't wait until he's fired and the next GM can get rid of all those bums on our roster that he drafted. (Pettersson, Hughes, Boeser, Gaudette, Demko, Virtanen...)
  10. Can we talk about the most important thing here? We can all talk hockey again Words I never thought I'd say... GOD I MISSED CDC
  11. 2023! ....oh I thought we were just counting up the years. Excited for the progress Jasek has made in Utica this year with the switch to center. I think he'll be able to carve himself out a decent career as a bottom 6 NHL player.
  12. Without looking at the CBA, here's what I have gleaned with my years of expertise (gained by spending lots of time on CDC ). FACTS: - Tryamkin was an RFA when he left, and we tendered a qualifying offer to retain his rights - Tryamkin did NOT sign a deal with any team in a league with which the NHL has a transfer agreement - Tryamkin is on the Canucks 90 man reserve list The comparable situation would be when Radulov returned to Nashville in 2012 after going back to Russia. He had already completed his ELC, then chose not to sign with Nashville and went back home. They tendered a qualifying offer to retain his rights. He re-signed at the end of his KHL season and rejoined the team. This is unlike the Nylander situation where he had to sign by Dec 1st (I think that's the date) or else be ineligible for the whole season. If Nylander had gone to play in the SHL that year (or even for multiple years like NT), he would not be able to return later in the season due to the transfer agreement. Since there is no transfer agreement between the KHL and NHL, seasons there would not count towards the 7 years of professional experience to be a UFA. Anyways, I could be entirely wrong and he truly IS ineligible for this season (which would be a BUMMER), but I'm pretty sure I'm right. I LOVE being right, so let's hope that's the case. For my sake too, but mostly for the Canucks.
