  1. At least get Nyquist for what you're giving up. What a brutal trade
  2. All time Czech, Russian and Finnish Canucks

    He meant Evgeny Namestnikov who was a former Canuck draft pick and is now a scout for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
  3. Brock Boeser | #6 | RW

    To be fair, mine was sarcastic... I liked Konecny but I was happy with Boeser in the end.
  4. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    SHL's current leading point scorer Ryan Lasch apparently got injured. From what Google's translations tell me, it was apparently quite serious (though I'm not sure by how or why). Obviously very sad to see someone injured (especially a serious injury), but the silver lining for us is that Pettersson will have the opportunity to regain the lead in scoring, probably win league MVP, and if possible, will break the record for U20 scoring of all time. The hype is real- if we get Dahlin with Pettersson, we will never have to worry about our PP again.
  5. Brock Boeser | #6 | RW

    LOL Brock has surpassed Sutter in less than a season... (or at least he will).
  6. Brendan Leipsic | #9 | LW/C

    Correct me if I'm wrong (as the video quality was -5 pixels), but it seems like Leipsic stops moving his feet from even before the red line, glides into the hit (nor does he jump into it either), and the chest also seems to be the principle point of contact. Looks clean to me - Kolesar should've had his head up...
  7. Brendan Leipsic | #9 | LW/C

    Wow, this guy is a lot better than I thought. Fits in perfectly with Horvat and Boeser. That combination of speed, hands, playmaking and the grit to win puck battles to free up the puck for Horvat and Boeser makes him a perfect fit- definitely adds the missing element that Baertschi could not provide to that line.

    Comparisons are to Mike Richards. Ryan Kesler is comparable if Gaudette can learn to be as fast.
  9. Hahaha it's a copy pasta. BM is making a joke.
  10. Canucks future #1 center

    Jack Hughes is 16, he's eligible next year not this year. Absolutely destroyed the U17 WJCs and killing it in the USHL as a 16 year old. He's definitely one to watch out for.
  11. Rumour - Larry Brooks - Max Domi

    I remember after Horvat's first all-star game is that he mentioned about how he enjoys/prefers playing with skilled wingers who can create space and dish the puck (played with Gaudreau). Probably reminiscent of when Domi played on his wing back in London as well. No better player to play with than the one who he started it all with. Hard to excel on the Coyotes indeed, they need better quality veterans that can still play and mentor the youngins coming up. Unfortunately it's not something they'd want to acquire for much in a trade.
  12. Rumour - Larry Brooks - Max Domi

    Sorry Alf, but Domi doesn't belong in the bottom six. Domi is having a bad year because Arizona sucks, he's a proven commodity and is still only 22 years old.

    Apologies, I didn't mean to come across as upset or irritated. I suppose I was just being too straightforward without regard for the tone in the way my point was given. I believe his main point is that there's no huge loss in not being able to sign Sikura right? I guess it's not something to cry over, but it would be a greater loss than missing out on Cagguila. Gaining a free asset similar to Kerfoot would not only improve our team, but also free up assets to trade for (e.g. Max Domi maybe?). Kerfoot is filling in for Mackinnon, on an Avs team that can potentially be in the playoffs. If Sikura is of a similar quality (combined with Gaudette's potential impact) I would say it's worth being disappointed over (momentarily anyway). I could be wrong in Sikura ends up being unable to adapt to the NHL, but he's an enticing piece either way.
  14. Adam Gaudette | C

    Arguable? You're either underrating Sikura, or overrating Cagguila. Not very many players are "franchise altering." Aston-Reese is another Drake Cagguila, not Sikura. Sikura actually has skill instead of just grit and willpower. He's probably closer to Kerfoot.
  15. Adam Gaudette | C

    Sikura is better than Cagguila.
