wait a minute, you are defending the coach but saying the 1st was garnage and the 2nd wasn't bad?

 

did you watch the first period of the game both teams were garbage, what i typed is probably what i mean.

next time tell them you're cancelling your service. 

they'll transfer you to the 'customer retention' dept

you'll do better than a 1 day refund.

I'd be careful with that. I've heard of cable companies transferring people looking to cancel their services to the cancellation department.

I have no sources and what i am saying here is simply my opinion. Erickson has 3 more years after this one and Sutter 2 more.

Those are pretty much unmoveable contracts.

Two words, David Clarkson.

And do you think someone would take on the Schaller contract? Or Gudbranson's .

Schaller, probably not, but Gudbranson, yes I do.  A playoff team would take that on in a second.

The Canucks would have to keep a lot of the cap hit.

For Eriksson, probably. As mentioned previously, there were a few teams interested in Sutter last year around playoff time.

1 minute ago, coastal1 said:

They certainly have ability but all those contracts are horrible.

Eriksson's is pretty bad, but the other three, when you look at the league overall from a salary perspective are not that bad at all.

And good that you recognize that the Canucks are still at this time in the bottom echelons of the league, going to overtime with Ottawa and Arizona, for example.

Top teams have lost to both aforementioned teams this year. Overall, the team is a few players away from being consistently competitive. They've shown flashes of brilliance this season, and they have also shown all the passion of a flat tire, as well. The more players on this team that are invested and capable of keeping up, the better things will be.

Some fans have rose colored glasses sometimes and think that this team is close.

Close to competing, or close to being a contender? This team has shown, that it can compete....when it wants to. You don't beat Boston 8-5, if you're a $&!#ty team.

Some great pieces are in place for sure. But it is only a start as you said in your own way, and a very long way to go still.

I don't think it's that long. Within a season or two, realistically.

"Gave 'em a little more speed on the forecheck than Goldy does, so I thought we'd make the change, and I thought that line was better after we made that change." - Green on putting Baertschi on the top line

Was saying that should happen(BBB LINE) before the game started. He didn't realize that until after? Wow TG. Baertchi is just a "little" better then Goldy. :lol:

The Bo, the Brock and The Sven played well tonight. Looks like The Bo is getting his mojo back, he seemed to have lost some jam lately, probably all the wedding planning going on...:lol:

 

I thought most of the kids played well, Goldy with some slick stick handling, the Guad being, well the Guad, and the Jake was throwing some mass around. I feel bad for Goldy, he had some good shifts, can't buy a goal, Gaud goes out, slames in a deflection. Something tells me Goldy has been given an ultimatum. Perform or else. Jake still needs to intensify!

Ultimatum?

 

Look, it's really simple.

 

As a player you have to produce offensively and defending well, or at least one of those exceptionally well. If not, you'll be gone sooner than later.

If you are young and need more time to develop, fine, then you belong in the AHL.

Otherwise, bye bye.

 

There is no ultimation. That's just daily business.

I suspect that if Tanev were to go to one of those teams for a 1st, then I suspect that Buffalo would only offer the San Jose pick (as it would be the lowest of the three they have). Colorado might be reluctant to trade a 1st at all as Ottawa's pick could be top-5 (if things keep going as they are) and the Colorado pick could be a lottery pick if things were to go south for the Avalanche for the remainder of the season..

 

                                                   regards,  G.

Don't disagree, there are many reasons for downgrading a pick but the issue is also time, While either first might be huge, they also may not, (ya , Captain Obvious :blush:)  Tanev is still young enough to be around another 6 years but fill a huge need immediately. The hope is that those GM's confidence in their team's to believe an additional piece takes them over the top or deeper towards the grail. The other way is a GM's job on the line and fan pressure. In that case the Canucks might have to give more but they could demand much more back, Tanev and Gaudette plus retention for 2 1rst round (conditional) picks and a D prospect or two to a team already a playoff contender.

 

If Edler isn't offered a contract then his agent can start marketing him to cities he may like. Anyway it would be in Edler's best interest to start the process of participation in a trade.

 

IMO if he doesn't care about winning a cup then he isn't a player this team needs, wanting the cup is almost half the battle in getting to have a chance.

Did Brock even play last night? Joking but making a point, can this kid play without EP? Starting to see a trend with Brock, he can't produce unless he's playing with EP it seems. Earlier in the season Green had him with Horvat, and he wasn't producing then put him with EP and then he started producing, then EP got the minor concussion and Brock couldn't produce again, then EP came back and Brock was able to produce again, now with EP out again Brock can't produce again.

Brock is not a driver of offence. Probably never will be. He is a finisher. He thrives on the give and go plays and when paired with EP its a real nice fit. EP is an elite talent who does drive play but also thrives on the give and goes. I think they will be our future studs on offence for years to come. They compliment each other as players and as time goes on will get even better. No problem here.

It was the same with Hamhuis. Eddy and Hamhuis are, and were, great players. I lost a little respect for Hamhuis the way he went out. I hope Eddy goes out swinging instead. I respect  the family and comfort thing. But I can really respect the "I want the effenn cup thing". Its probably not fair of me to comment on it as I am not in their shoes but players that want to win cups at all costs are players I want on my team. Ultimately I hope Eddy goes to a cup favourite this spring and then comes back. I would love to see him or Hamhuis hoist the cup this spring.

He also had 2 Sedins setting him up a lot on the PP as well

He definitely misses the twins on the PP. Cant wait till Hughes and EP are working with Brock on the PP. Fireworks baby!

Lol. Did you even watch the game last night? Are you serious right now?
& Did you watch any of the games last season at all? You know where he was going to get 40 goals playing without EP before getting hurt?
He's nearly a point a game. What more do some of you guys want out of the guy? Can't believe people are talking about trading him and trashing him. The guy is a class act. 

And I thought he looked fine last night for the record. 4 shots and plenty of nice plays.

Greens hatred for Goldobin is becoming more apparent every game why on earth would you have Sutter on the ice 3 on 3 in OT or even Granlund . Greens coaching style leaves little to be desired . I don't give a rats a$$ if Goldobin has defensive misgivings . You cant add pure talent to a mucker or checker. Ether trade him or play him , sitting him is wrecking the player and his value. 

Even Motte before Sutter and Granlund but with the fine game Goldobin was having I thought he would be out in one of the two first shifts of the OT.
