how can the Pens/Wings do it and not us?

76 posts in this topic

Detriot can because they are Detriot.

Pittsburgh can because they have Sid and Geno.

We do have the Sedins but they aren't respected enough throughout the league, It's sad but we just arent as appealing.

need money to make money

need talent to get talent

nucks are almost there - but need to win a cup AND still be in contention year after year. we are in contention last little while, but need to win that cup... simple as that. then it would also be easier to attract talent - and then also to stay at the top and win another cup

Gillis = spreads money throughout the team

Shero & Holland = spend big , fill out with cheap contracts

Honestly I could never see Suter here or on any canadian teams. Same with Parise, but also many eastern conference players don't want to come to the West because of travel, and Vancouver does a lot of travel out of all teams.

Maybe because the Pens and Wings are American teams and he wants to go there? Parise has control of his destination and honestly why wouldn't he want to go to the Pens? They have more world class talent there and they are a few little steps from being Stanley Cup favourites. How can you call Garrison a one hit wonder? Unless he stinks it up next this year just reserve your judgement. Garrison has been solid defensively for awhile before and he happens to get good numbers playing on a much improved Florida team. He can put up better numbers here to be honest.

THe things that Vancouver has going for them is that they are a cup contending team and play in the nicest city in the NHL by far.

Those two things would bring in alot of free agents u would think

Wherever Suter,Parise and Nash end up, their teams still wont be as deep and talented like the Canucks, we're just adding a couple pieces here and there and going for the whole thing. Vancouver is still much better than Detroit and Pittsburgh IMO

How about you take a look at the back end for both these teams. At this time both D cores are pretty pathetic. Pitts D core is just atrocious right now (worse than the core that got mandhandled by Philly) and Detroit is a complete shadow of what they were a year ago on D.

That's what happens when you sign and over pay your D to ridiculous contracts or pick up players who are being paid ridiculous contracts.

luongo has peaked in his career and still have a lengthy contract tied to him. staal is a free agent in his prime, so of course it will be easier to trade him. the canucks aren't in the running for suter/parise because gillis isn't the type to throw money on the biggest name on the market. he firmly believes that balance is everything to success.

waaaaaa I WANT WHAT THEY WANT CAUSE THEY WANT IT AND WE DONT HAVE IT.....helps that the pens have double the cap space we have currently, and the wings have triple the cap space we have........look at the whole buffet, instead of just the dessert table kids

seriously, no need for the angsts. we have a good team- lots of stars, really, that probably 15 other teams would like to have. henrik and daniel, kesler, burrows, hamhuis, edler, Lu (i know, i know, he is leaving soon), bieksa, now we will have garrison. our 3rd and 4th liners could be 2nd liner in other teams, seriously. we don't need franchise players like suter and parise- we have 3 in our team (sedins, kesler). why do u want parise when you have henrik and daniel and kesler (when healthy)? why do you want a suter when you have a collective hamhuis, bieksa, edler and now garrison? how many teams have mvp/ selke / art ross in their team the past 5 years? we're good. there is no need for parise and suter who wants excessive $$$. MG just need to fill-up little pieces.
