  1. Is the Current Ownership Failing this Team?

    This ownership group has been very good to the fans. If the fans got behind the owners we would have synergy to bring the team up. Every fan who complains about the owners is helping to tear down the structure they are trying to create. The reason canuck fans are unhappy is that they bitch about everything. I liked Linden but he quit his job. He was not fired he quit. I cannot respect that. Acquilinis gave been very good owners. Every facility and coach is brought in and every dollar is spent without question. If fans were proud of the owners it would filter through the entire organization as a positive reinforcement.
  2. Yup. He lacks a physical edge and has just seen 3 vets come on board who bring that. His lack of scoring is ultimately an Achilles heel if you don't bring anything other than forechecking to the team.
  3. Just gotta say I really like the fact that as nux are ranked 4th best prospect pool in the whole league there are only a handful of responses on CDC - not an avalanche of rah rah. Plus the responses are smart. Says a lot about our prospect pool but also says a lot about the growing maturity of the fan base. Nice.
  4. Agree pretty much. You left out Gaunce easy to do I know lol.

    I expect that the discussion about signing hughes this year centers around deployment. Putting him in a position to succeed. 1st line pplay for 5 to 6 mins a night. 10 or 11 mins at 5 on 5. Heavy weighting on offensive zone starts. Approx 16 minutes a night TOI. Focus on the kids obvious strengths. Shelter him from the situations that are more difficult for him. And let him grow. Prediction he is signed and used as above. Second prediction he gets 30+ points.
  6. Sam Gagner, why the hate?

    I agree with you. It is myopic for the canucks to take a one size fits all approach and say guys need to over ripen in the ahl. Which linden has been quoted in the past as saying. If a guy is ready for the show make it happen. Benning says they will do this but it seems they are damn cautious. If the prospect should be on the team don't hold him back. Doing so can be every bit as detrimemtal as promoting someone too early. Nux fans have seen this movie before. Show some balls management. Move some guys like gagner before the season starts. Improve the kids odds from abysmal to possible. Then let them show you. Keep the recently signed tough guys in 4th line roles. But open up some top 9 opportunities and maybeveven grab a draft pick or two along the way. ☺
  7. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    Thanks Burr for some great memories. Bon chance. Now becoming time to close the thread and let the poor guy who started it off the hook. Kindness.
  8. Sam Gagner, why the hate?

    No one here would say they hate gagner. However a strong majority would say he is potentially blocking a young player from a roster spot. The biggest hot spot for canuck fans is wanting to see young players get a chance to develop. After several years of losing it is a hot button for sure. Don't mind gagner just would hate to see him hold back Gaudette or dahlen or goldobin. I think that speaks for a lot of fans.

    Exactly 1 year from now jack will be drafted by an nhl team. Very high probability that team is not vancouver. So. Jack is with another team. Quinn is still unsigned cuz we wanted him to go back to college this year. Hmm. They are gonna want to play on the same team for their careers if they can... I don't like that possible scenario. Just sayin..

    Gaunce has had his time. He was here because he used to be the only relatively young 1st round pick not named Horvat who was still a Canuck. The last 5 years have changed that to the point that Gaunce must be assessed simply on what he brings now. No longer potential but what he brings now. Which is not enough to keep a full time roster spot.
  11. Quinn Hughes | D

    Hughes is an offensive defenseman. Needs to play with someone who is defensively responsible and will naturally cover when Hughes takes a chance. Tanev fits the bill. Gudbranson would be a terrible choice.
  12. Sedins Win King Clancy

    Maybe she misses Tiger..
  13. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Trading Tanev for a 2nd would be absolutely pointless.
