Didn't you just finish telling people they were loopy for wanting a free agent signing in that other thread, then in another you asked for doan and santa claus and some other character, and then plugged Pinizzottooto in your lineup, then asked for a GM job?
3 players is simply not enough! We need to replace the whole team! No less than 8 free agent signings will be sufficient!
It was "a" free agent signing, it was Schultz in particular. There is nothing wrong with Free Agency if it addresses the problems we have.
What's your point apart from your demonstration of lack of comprehension and ambition with a touch of a lack of sense of humour (the GM remark was tongue in cheek, was that a step too far for you?)
All this stuff is just a bit of fun or haven't you realised that? Nobody at Canucks Central gives a plug for what any of us say. Get over yourself."1 team can win it, that means 15 others won't."
Don't you mean 29? After all I take it everyone starts off wanting to win the SC. "Canucks, as much as I hate to repeat, were 1 game from winning the cup in 2011."
And were pulverised in the process."They didn't 'look like a team that would go all the way"
Maybe not to you..........but I pointed out how they were making a big effort.Posted 23 November 2011 - 07:19 PMOn a wintry afternoon here in Scotland I thought I would assess what we and the other teams around us have done in the layoff and during the season so far...........and it looks a wee bit worrying.
Only the Preds and the Wings seem to have done as little as we have but even the wings brought in two big D's in Commodore and Brunnstrom.
The Wild have brought some forward size in with Heatly, Powe and Setoguchi.
Oilers have upped their poundage with Barker, Eager, Hordi, Petrel, Potter, Sutton and Teubert to go with Ryan Smith and their magical kid line.
LA have brought in size and quality with Penner, Hunter, Gagne and Richards."One good play can make the difference between success and failure. One bad play can make the difference between cup or no cup. To make these kinds of moves when the success is based on such trivial happenstances such as timing more often than anything else is ludicrous"
I'm not disagreeing with you on this..............if as long as we think we have what we need in place. You do.........I used to think it and now I have changed my mind and I don't. I think we lack size, variation and quality. Our 5 on 5 is not good enough. Our D is ok offensively (and they have had to be) but not up to it defensively.
With respect, your analogies suck and in the final analysis we don't have to gut the team but we need to address the issues we have. Your attitude will have us sitting here in 5-10 years time still saying we were one unlucky break away from the SC yet again.
Never was a truer word uttered and it is particularly appropriate to the SC"You have to FIGHT for the right to impose your game on the opposition"
The Kings did it, Boston did it, and despite getting to game 7 we did not do it at any time in that series and because we did not address it we were bundled out this year too.
