In Topic: Which Players are Expendable for Bargain Bin Hunting?

Today, 09:35 AM

Burrows, Higgins, Hanson and Bieksa (cmon guys this isn't 2010 anymore, time to get some assets for our aging pieces) Time to Bring some youth in and develop them, can still be competitive with some youth sprinkled throughout the lineup. Add: Franson and Santorrelli


In Topic: Markstrom

Today, 08:16 AM

Goalies are almost impossible to project, that being said Markstrom has worked hard to improve since he's been traded to Vancouver, and has improved his game exponentially.  There is a reason that recently we have molded Schneider, Lack and probably soon Markstrom into good NHL goalies. Vancouver has a good goalie coach and he will continue to work with Jacob to turn him into the starter for next year.

 

Edit: next year as in 2016-2017, in my mind its the 2015-16 season already :emot-parrot:


In Topic: Grade Benning's work on draft day 1

Today, 08:08 AM

I would give him a C+

 

- Didn't get the Bieksa deal done when he should of, though will say Doug Wilson may be more to blame if reports are true

- Should of traded; Higgins, Hansen to make cap room for Mattias and other free agents (frason/Santorelli)

- I do like the pick, Boeser, I've read he's a more skilled version of Mike Fisher. A few other teams scouts were raving about him, also remember this draft is similar to the Kesler one :towel:

I'm getting really tired at our Vancouver fans being so disrespectful to JB and Linden.. 

EDIT: Not you guys

It's gotten out of hand, I am embarrassed as a Canucks fan because of these idiots. Bieksa has to go and the reason for it is his play, his contract would be great if he played like 2010 Bieksa...... But its 2015 and he is slow and no longer the physically dominate dman he once was, while taking up 4.63 of cap space (which could be used for Franson) We need to start moving assets that no longer are playing up to their contract but have some value (2nd pick next year is good value for Bieksa) We have done this for years rather than trade them to get some value back we just let the contract expire and them walk away while getting nothing.


In Topic: [TRADE] EDDIE TO CAROLINA

Today, 07:49 AM

Lack was never going to go for a second, let alone a first. He is 1 year away from being UFA, is 27 and may not sign with the team he was traded to. Frankly I'm happy with the third pick for a player that is still unproven. Take off the Lack colored glasses and you will see that this was a good trade.
