  1. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    For a second, I thought his jersey said LAK, and was mad.
  2. I'm sure Shannaplan had the following items: -Win 1OA in 2016 and draft Matthews. -Sign John Tavares in 2018 as a UFA. I guess Lindennaplan didn't have those items on the list and that's why Linden is left in the dust by Shannaplan? Shame on Linden for not constructing a detailed plan that includes winning a #1OA. Every good rebuild plan must start with a #1 OA, how can Linden not know that? Canucks were basically a 100 pt team when Linden took over. Of course, Shanny and Linden's initial moves had to be different given their situations. Linden was given the impossible task of rebuilding through the draft whilst maintaining competitiveness of a 100pt team. This explains JB hiring as they were preparing for drafting players in the mid to late first round and hence, they needed a GM with great track record as shrewd evaluator of talent. And those UFA signings + trade for vets are also explained as they wanted to maintain competitiveness. Of course, it failed because even the Sedins were not able hold the fort by themselves at the ages of 35. Should Linden have decided to pull the plug and traded Sedins to say Chicago, LA, or San Jose? Maybe but that was not up to him. Sedins didn't want to move and the owner (probably) would have vetoed the trade. On the other hand, Toronto was rivalling Edmonton for the title of the worst franchise since 2007-08. The mandate was clear, blow it up (well, there was barely anything left to blow it up since it's not like they had two HHOFs like we did). So Toronto F*cking Maple Leafs did Pittsburgh a big favor by gifting them Kessel and two Stanley cups. Shannaplan shifted the balance of power in the NHL. Good job Shanny! It could have been 3 if not for Washington's efforts. Signing Babcock? It was easy right? Just throw 8 mil at him. Hiring Dubas? Sure that seems like a good move but this is his first year on the job. He signed Tavares but that's because of Dubas or more the case of Tavares wanting to come home? Jury is still out on how good of a GM Dubas is going to become. He might just turn out to be the next John Chayka. Who knows? Too early to tell. So why was this article written? To criticise Linden or praise Shanny? I think it achieves neither so basically it's just another piece of garbage floating around on the WWW.
  3. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    Yes. I think we should get it over with ASAP; new era with Bo as the leader. I think Edler, Tanev from D's and Sutter, Eriksson among F's should share the A. Vets to support the new and young captain.
  4. Re-Draft 2012 (Top 10)

    Wow, 1F5D4G. Only 1 forward in top 10 re-draft. Most goalie/defence stacked redraft I've ever seen.
  5. Your favourite NHL teams ranked 1-31

    Interesting. My guess is most of us Canucks fans will have Boston, Toronto, Calgary, LA at the bottom. Rank Team 1 Vancouver Canucks 2 Washington Capitals 3 Nashville Predators 4 Montreal Canadiens 5 Tampa Bay Lightning 6 Ottawa Senators 7 Winnipeg Jets 8 Florida Panthers 9 Philadelphia Flyers 10 Carolina Hurricanes 11 Pittsburgh Penguins 12 Detroit Red Wings 13 New York Islanders 14 Columbus Blue Jackets 15 Buffalo Sabres 16 New Jersey Devils 17 St. Louis Blues 18 Arizona Coyotes 19 New York Rangers 20 Minnesota Wild 21 Dallas Stars 22 Colorado Avalanche 23 Anaheim Ducks 24 Edmonton Oilers 25 San Jose Sharks 26 Chicago Blackhawks 27 Toronto Maple Leafs 28 Calgary Flames 29 LA Kings 30 Boston Bruins
  6. [Signing] Sabres sign Rasmus Dahlin

    Yep hate those teams. Should add Blackhawks to the list of teams in their prime when we had a good team.
  7. [Signing] Sabres sign Rasmus Dahlin

    Turgeon. Right.
  8. [Signing] Sabres sign Rasmus Dahlin

    When are we ever going to get a #1 overall pick? Our expansion cousin the Sabres, already has had two.
  9. Yep. That's me. Didn't know I made it into the dictionary. This is all thanks to Coloardo Joe. Suck it Coloarado!
  10. Sick of hearing this name. Burnaby Joe blah blah blah blah. He always killed us in the games that mattered and the commentators would compliment him by saying something like Burnaby Joe does it again to the Canucks. Just call him Colorado Joe from now on. Why is there any need to emphasize his Burnaby connection? He ain't living there anymore I don't think. He's just a Coloardo Joe. There ain't a Burnaby Joe no more. Don't nobody bring up as much as B in Burnaby Joe. No more! Nope. Colorado Joe steps to the podium in Vancouver next year announcing with the 10th OA pick they select blah blah. And blah blah turns out much worse than Matt Duchene.
  11. Sam Gagner, why the hate?

    The plant in the corner sucks up carbon dioxide. That was harsh... for the plant to be compared to Gags. lol just joking. I think Gagner can be a useful player for us. We don't really have a 2nd line center and it sounds like it will be somewhat of a revolving door. Sutter will be tried, I'm sure EP will be given a chance at some point, and maybe Gagner could get a chance as well. I personally think that if we are going to give EP sheltered minutes, perhaps Gagner-EP could be a pair? Gagner is pretty good in the offensive zone and I think he can make plays with EP. Horvat, Sutter, and Beagle can eat up a lot of minutes on the defensive side of things. Maybe something like this? Baer-Horvat-Boeser Goldobin-Gagner-EP Schaller-Sutter-Eriksson Virtanen-Beagle-Roussel Granlund Gaunce/Leipsic That 2nd line will be heavily sheltered with EP getting #1PP time.
  12. Petrus Palmu | RW/LW

    Yep I watched it too. He was way thicker than Gadjovich. He is going to be really hard to play against for the opponents.
  13. Maybe Lou is Maple Leaf's spy. Shannahan: Lou, you need to help us. Get yourself hired by Islanders as pres/GM. Piss Tavares off so that he will sign with us. Lou: Done. Shannahan: Now, take Martin's contract over. Lou: Done. Mid season, Islanders fire Lou and Leafs hire him back. Lamoriello gets his name on the cup.
  14. If Colorado offers that package for Karlsson, then I do agree that it will be hard to beat. IMO, Pettersson, Boeser, and Hughes are basically not moveable even for Karlsson. Colorado offering Makar and Senators 1st in 2019 is already better than any package that we can offer not involving Pettersson, Boeser, and Hughes. Colorado is a playoff team and losing Makar (future PMD) for best PMD in the league now seems like a reasonable thing to do. If Karlsson and Avs agree to a long term deal, this deal or something similar could indeed take place.
  15. [Roster]Opening day forward line up

    If we get Jack Hughes, either JH or EP can just stay on the wing. Horvat is more than capable 2nd line center and Gaudette a 3rd line center.
