How long was Crybaby Crosby a thing? I’m sure McDavid will be just fine.

I'm glad that the league doesn't buy into his flapping arms routine every night tho, some nights he does deserve to be called "McDiver" imo. Too many guys on that team do it, frankly, with Smith and Nurse being the worst. Even Koskinen last night with Petey... laid on the ice like he was run over by Probert :lol:

Oh, he can piss right off with the diving but something tells me the kids who want to emulate McDavid aren’t focusing on that part of his game.

If you’re getting your game on in what looks to be your garage while smoking a stogey, you, sir are a beauty! Registered Beautician! That would be my happy place.

Yup!  Thanks!  Me, a kerosene heater, and electric heater make it about 65-68F in here when it's 20°F outside.  Add the 55 inch flat screen, hard wired to the modem with the NHLtv service and a quality cigar and I'm in heaven.  Took a bit to get it all together, adding on here and there but well worth the wait.  If you're ever in the DC area, come on by!  I have a second zero gravity chair and a fine cigar for ya!  :lol: :metal:

As they improve, their prospects will degrade a bit as they pick further in the rounds

Of course.  But what we have in there now compares quite favorably to what has graduated out of the Oiler swamp of prospects trying to balance that roster today.

 

Our future looks far brighter, IMO.

Not sure if trolling or...:huh:

 

You do know his name is legally Connor McDavid right?

Actually I looked up his birth certificate online.

 

His legal birth name was McCheesey Cheese Face. He changed it when he was 12 to Connor.

The only way this team has a long window, is if we continually feed youngsters into lines with the core, inflate their value before their 2nd contracts come up, and flip for more ELC blue chippers. Its how Chicago, Tampa, Boston, and others extended their windows beyond a single strong core.


Problem is, who do the Canucks have coming up to do this with?

Brock Boeser and Jake Virtanen.  I'm not advocating for trading them, but that's the comparable to the Chicago model where they had to deal away some of their young breakout players.  

Our best players at the moment are 
1. Elias Petersson 
2. JT Miller 
3. Quinn Hughes 
4. Jacob Markstrom 
5. Bo Horvat 

We'll see what happens in two years but I'm really hoping that we have two of Hoglander, Madden, Rathbone or Podkolzin ready to step in and take an NHL job by then.  If that happens then we can start doing what you're suggesting.

Dat Petey with eyes in his butt? Ahh, Jake.  He must have learned that from Petey too.

Hold fast. 

Remember, Jake is streaky. 

New Jake is awesome. If he has stopped being streaky, I will join you. 

Release your doubts. Come to the light of Jake.

a question for the McDavid debate going on....

 

Would you trade EP40 straight up for McDavid?...or McDavid for Mckinnon?

No. Started a thread asking this, after we'd only seen EP's first coupla' games(Oct 2018). Wouldn't then..& wouldn't now.

Found it funny that TG said he bumped Virtanen up with EP and Miller for his speed.  I thought the temperature of the game was getting pretty heated so he wanted to ice a line with some speed and physicality.
