This is exactly what Poole is trying to do without a doubt. The problem being every team still thinks they're in the race, lol. We have two pretty good pieces to offer for a good forward. A good young puck mover in John Blum and a 23 year old goalie with real potential in lindbach, both sort of redundant because of what we already have. I'm afraid we'll have to overpay in this environment for some rental like hemsky (which is one rumor).
Have confidnce in our management though.
Oh and let me correct myself we're actually only 3-1 against CHI and 4-0 against STL.
Always glad to talk real hockey with true, knowledgeable fans.

Sutter suppossedly pressuring Poole to get an impact player in order to resign? They say he wants to test the free agent market. Nashville needs him for the playoff run but is the risk keeping him and getting nothing in return for him in the offseason worth it? Canucks keep a star defence in the past Jovonaski and lost him to free agency after the season for nothing.

The way Van is playing right now any one we meet in the first round will be tough. Best option would be the Yotes or Dallas. Calgary is running out of games. SJ should win their div and LA has been a puzzler all year. The two most dangerous teams for Van will be the Preds and the Blues. If the Preds get that Russian back I would almost favor them in the West. He would be the icing on the cake considering the trade deadline moves that Poile made. Van is most definitely not going into playoffs playing as well as last year. I say that thinking that this year's team is fundementally stronger than last year. My two aforementioned pics of the Preds and Blues have improved much more. Hitchcock alone makes the Blues very scary. Detroit is another year older with injuries and SJ needs a heart transplant.
Well. Here we both are again. As I knew we would both be. Looks like we're predestined to play the wings in round one. Who do you guys think you'll catch round one out of the smozzle around 7-8? Really it's more of a question of which do you want/don't want I guess.
Best of luck. Maybe we see each other round two again.

From a Canuck fan to a Predator fan - you guys are probably the Cup favourites right now, up there with Pittsburgh,

Welcome back pred303guy!
It was a refreshing series last year's playoffs vs. the Preds, having a wonderful fanbase to banter with. As opposed to the biased drivel from most fans, including many of our own. From Nashville's perspective, why have the Canucks become villified in the league?
- How do you feel about your date with Detroit? I think if you can take care of business there, the next opponent should very much fear and respect the Predators.
- As a former Winnipegger who rallied in vain to save the Jets, I haved mixed (but overall very positive) feelings about Jets 2.0. I saw clips of the "Thrash the Jets" jersey protest... obviously Atlanta doesn't feel the same. I wonder what the climate is there regarding the Jets/Thrashers move, and realignment politics?
Yeah, it's a three-parter. Thanks for representing with class, mate!

Unless the team implodes or fails catastrophically in the 1st/2nd round, I don't see how poile's move would discourage the franchise players from re-signing in nashville. The moves done so far have made the preds scary, and if you lose - it happens, the team has to have experiences together before winning as well. Nashville has at least another free agency period (2012) before I would question the team's willingness to win.
i think that's actually the prime conisderation here. suter has made it know publicly and privately that he wants to see the team improved. the way it has come across is that if it's done he'll re-sign. than on the tail of that weber has hinted he'd re-sign if he saw the team trying to improve itself and also hinted that if suter stays. so tons of pressure on poile to make an offensive acquisition. everyone realizes what a risk it all is, you might go out and do that and trade away some of the young guys you would need and then suter leaves anyway. and then lose weber the next year possibly because of that.
If poile didn't feel we were close to being able to truly compete or if we were sitting in 10th right now, it'd be a no brainer situation, you'd trade suter now and get a boatload in return.. but of course it's not. we're the youngest overall team in the league and young guys are improving dramatically and will be top notch players in this league soon (wilson,smith,ellis,halischuk,josi to name 5, plus the forlorn hope radulov actually returns to the NHL) and obviously only an offensive piece or two from being a true top tier team right now, much less when wilson and smith grow into 25-30 goal scorers or if radulov comes back. We all know all it takes is for us to re-sign these two guys and we're going to be a force. But.
So poile is really in a tough spot. A high risk spot. It's why we'll almost surely hear some deal for some forward soon. at almost whatever the cost.

It comes from the same guy who said Anaheim would win the Presidents Trophy....
Really? I don't agree. Granted, getting Radulov gives them a scoring dynamic they were lacking... but I don't see them as a favorite to win the cup at all - though they will certainly be no pushover.
