In Topic: [Discussion] Prospective Expansion Draft - Protection?

21 May 2014 - 10:57 AM

Interesting way to ditch some bad contracts, if an expansion team would touch them.


In Topic: [Confirmed] Jim Benning signs as new Canucks GM

21 May 2014 - 10:55 AM

As long as hiring Benning isn't followed by signing a washed up Chara and having him steal the C away from Henrick (we already traded away Luongo).  (Keenan -> Messier era was a very bad time as a Canucks fan)

 

I'm looking forward to a new era and a new coach soon.


In Topic: Can we please get over this obsession with size? Make Canuck Hockey fun to wa...

It's crazy to keep chasing what the last guy did to win, because good coaches and GMs will always find a solution to the current problem. We do need to be a step ahead. Whether or not it is or is not size is hard to say.

 

Detroit for years has had the "problem" of consistently being good and making the playoffs. As a result they go off the common model every other team drafts by. They know they have to look at skills and intangibles over the obvious of size, height, weight or junior team they play for.

On the CBC playoff panel, not answering any questions?


In Topic: Canucks have a 6.2% chance of getting the 1st overall pick

The Edmonton website has a simulator on it

I got in order, Edmonton first try, Vancouver second and Calgary third. After that Buffalo came up a lot and Florida once.

If I was going into surgery and I was told I had a 6% chance, I really don't like those odds, but if you told me someone was going to shoot a gun into a room, and there was a 1-in-20 or better chance I would be shot, I would be afraid. Both are essentially our odds of winning the draft lottery.
