      I'd rather he get draft picks back in trades. He's pretty good at the draft thing. :ph34r:

      yeah sure

      have jb make trades to acquire 2 higher value assets

      for a collection of weaker or oft injured players

      and include no high end prospects or picks

      right

      i can tell that will work for sure

      :wub::wub:

  4. Next yr canucks will suprise some teams  i hope the super rookie group of juolevi hughes gaudette petersson dahlen demko shut the twitter haters up while gaz lind goldobin  push for spots  making benning make few trades i love our new signings its  only 4 yrs for roussel and beagle and they will play hard we have tons of cap not sure why people are freaked out.  Can see hutton nilsson  gagner traded before season and tanev sutter edler at deadline. Lots of competition is good  just please sogn virtanen to a decent bridge contract please jimbo

      I think you answered your own question though. People are freaking out because Benning supposedly brought in these new veterans to provide leadership and guidance to our young guys and rookies, but as it stands, there's basically no room for those rookies to even play in the starting line-up. Four years is a long time when you consider that those players will still be taking up spots on the team when Horvat is leaving his prime and when our recent draft picks will be in theirs. How are we supposed to load up for playoff/cup runs when we've got 36 year old anchors on our team?

       

      Sure, if the people you suggest are traded at the TDL, then the worry is for nothing, but I have a hard time seeing Benning shipping out upwards of 6 people prior to the next TDL.

    as mix and match pairings  this yr 

    del zotto, biega coukd be odd guys out 

    1. Type R

      Type R

      Pouliot is 3rd pairing guy, which I don't mind paired with Guddy.  Juolevi will probably start year in Utica, and may be brought up if/when Tanev is traded.  They seem to really like MDZ, so expect him on that second pair chewing up minutes.  Stetcher will be there too, not sure where.  Hutty will be shipped out if he doesn't show up for camp dominating.

    good draft so far keep finding the gems benning
  12. Boqvist or bouchard heres hoping one fall to us. Trader Jim work your magic get us a mid to late pick for any of tanev sutter nilsson baertchi. ty smith  wouldnt be a bad late grab as well 

    1. Fateless

      Fateless

      I'll be shocked Boqvist is taken before 7 OA and quite surprised if Bouchard goes prior to 7 OA.

       

      I bet they're both available when the Canucks draft, but quite frankly, I'd rather us stay away from both if possible (although Boqvist > Bouchard in my mind).

  13. ovi first ballot hall of fame  entry with this win the guys unreal  so happy hes finally won the cup 

    1. Honeydew

      Honeydew

      For sure, he HAS to be the first ballot on his hall of fame year.

    2. Brad Marchand

      Brad Marchand

      He's been a first ballot HOFer for several years now. This was the moment where he permanently erased any doubt of that.

       ya  totally  i think he will play out contract for 3 yrs and retire to play in next olympics   hes gonna chase the gold medal as cap in feather on career.
