      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Finally, showing the hypocrisy of tankists.

What's the hyprocrisy the only looney bins I hear wanting the Canucks to win is you and your band of Willie Watchers.

 

They guys against splitting up the Sedins to experiment or playing young guys big minutes to show what they can do.

 

Must be a lonely group of yous.

 

Even Don Taylor sees the light now and says the whole making the playoffs business is done. He says bring up the kids like Subban sign Boeser it you can give Boucher some games.

 

Give the fans something to cheer for and hope for next year.

 

Instead of riding the vets that are tried and injured like Sutter and playing grinders like Shore and Megnas and Chaput in hopes of squeaking out boring 1 goal wins.

 

Most fans rather see a 6-3 loss IF Goldy and Boucher are scoring or they get to watch Boeser or Subbans debut to get a more clear idea of what they look like at the NHL level.

 

But continue spewing the kids have to earn it... watch the losses mount because Karma is wrecking the vets so the kids are forced to play despite Willie ever stubborn refusing to concede the playoffs and lossen the leash a little.

I agree 100%. 

I went to the Islanders and Penguins games and they were both boring, low event games. It was quiet in the arena, and empty vs the Islanders. No one is willing to pay money to see Chaput, Skille and Megna. I would however pay full price to see the kids in the line up and play more than 6 mins a night. 

It's just funny how Linden and Benning said we couldn't handle a rebuild a few years back when most fans were crying for it, rather than spending years in mediocrity. Only up until recently have we been sellers of veteran players for prospects/youthful talent.

We've been begging to see the young kids play and get experience, rather than plugs that won't have a job in 2 years.  Only now Benning says Willie is on board with getting our kids more ice time. How is it the fans seem to have better long term vision than the Canucks brass?

The hypocrisy is calling for the team to tank, yet complaining when they play poorly and lose.  Li'l bit schizo, in fact.  Name-calling, presumptive labeling, and broad-brushing doesn't boost the value of comments either, btw.

 

Canucks aren't calling up any more players as Utica is in a battle to the playoffs.  And if you heard Benning yesterday, he said the kids will be getting more ice-time, so the jets can be cooled.

Two words: Francesco Aquilini. All he cares about is money.

Is this thread about Drew Shore or is it just another extension of some "Should we fire WD?" thread where nobody can argue their points without resorting to childish insults?

 

Seriously, most of you are adults so start acting like it.

Coming from Brad Marchand you know you done messed up.

 

Shore people - even if it means this thread dies.

Perhaps he was brought in to take some of the heat off Jason Megna?

 

But who really knows. It is weird.

Great point Wink, Utica is where its at right now. Tank north, push south. Its all kinda anti-climatic, there's really not much youth to showcase in the NHL at the moment, we're still icing the dregs from our powerhouse days.

 

TRYAMKIN ON THE POWERPLAY PLEASE!!!!

I don't mind seeing guys like Shore get a chance.  Haven't had a chance to see his game but it looks like he is reasonably involved.  I think it's worth playing him at center which I believe is his natural position and move Sutter to the wing since Sutter has struggled the last few weeks in most facets of play.

 

It's been a disappointing season for all Canucks fans, I would think (whatever "team" you're on), but right now, the silver lining has to be with the chance to see young blood get opportunities to step into larger roles.  The Sedins are still good but they should have been able to step back into a mentorship role.  If Bo can fill a #1A or #1B role while the rest of our prospects start to move up, then that should help to stem the bleed.  The team really needs a young top center to compliment or even exceed Bo, however.  At this stage, I'm content with watching the young players struggle a bit in new roles if it can lead to growth and a high draft pick.

WAT? We have Tanev, The Sedins and Edler left from our powerhouse days 19 other players on the team have joined since 2011 with the majority of those being under 25. We have now had 37 different player play for us this year as well. Saying we have no youth and we're playing too many dregs is beyond ridiculous.
