#12243717 [Report] Canucks close to re-signing Kassian

Posted by 7thMan on 30 June 2014 - 08:28 PM

Anywhere from $2-2.5 million would be fair. I'm glad to see that he isn't the kind of guy who is going to hold out and negotiate every dollar. Say what you will about Kassian, but he has heart.

#12240779 [Rumor] Ryan Miller to Vancouver Thread

Posted by 7thMan on 29 June 2014 - 08:18 PM

Thats debatable yes they made the playoffs, but if I recall we beat them every time we played each other.


What? Many were predicting the Blue to win the Cup. They were fourth in the league...

#12239306 [Proposal] Spend the money NOW!

Posted by 7thMan on 29 June 2014 - 01:02 PM

The team that gets McDavid is keeping McDavid. The only time I can remember a player of his calibre being traded at a young age was Eric Lindros, who was only traded because he refused to play for Quebec. Even with their hands tied, the Nordiques still managed to get Peter Forsberg, Ron Hextall, Chris Simon, Mike Ricci, Kerry Huffman, Steve Duchesne, two first round draft picks and $15 million cash (back when you could do that). 

McDavid's talent level will be somewhere in the Tavares to Crosby range (possibly better). He's so good that Buffalo is clearly tanking to get him. They want to finish last just to give themselves the best chance. Look at them.


You can't trade for the first overall, you need to win the lottery. The best we could do is try to accumulate first rounders now in hopes that the teams that give them to use collapse.

He says his favourite goalie is Dan Cloutier. That does not bode well.

#12237725 [Rumor] Canucks will make a serious attempt at Iginla

Posted by 7thMan on 28 June 2014 - 08:59 PM

The only thing that gives me hope is Benning's relationship with Iginla and Boston's inability to sign him. Benning would need to convince him that we're a contender, and Iginla puts us one step closer. 


I'm probably crazy, but I could imagine us being really good next season if Benning can sign the right guys to the right contracts. We have almost $18 million in cap space, around $6 million will probably go to resigning RFAs. That leaves us enough space to sign a couple of good free agents. If we could sign Iginla and another difference-maker, and have some of the young guys step up and the Sedins return to point-per-game form, we could be pretty good. Probably not Stanley Cup good, but competitive.

#12220733 [Proposal] VAN-FLA-ANA

Posted by 7thMan on 24 June 2014 - 06:43 PM

The Canucks want the first round pick from Florida. Florida reportedly wants a top 8 pick, a young defenseman and another player in return. Anaheim wants Kesler. So, a trade could look like...

  • Kesler to Anaheim
  • 6th overall pick, Sbisa and Silfverberg to Florida
  • 1st overall pick, 10th overall pick to Vancouver


Anaheim is getting Kesler for the 10th, Sbisa and Silfverberg; Florida is getting the 6th, Sbisa and Silfverberg for their 1st overall; and Vancouver is getting the 1st and 10th in exchange for Kesler.


What do you think? Should we call Benning and let him know?

2nd degree kidnapping, 3rd degree assault. Of course, he's previously been convicted of 1st degree robbery.

#11755235 [Report] Varlamov turns himself in to police

Posted by 7thMan on 30 October 2013 - 06:05 PM

Semyon Varlamov arrested on domestic violence charge

Posted by Adrian Dater

Word from the Aurora Police Dept. is that the Avalanche goalie has been arrested on the above charge.
Will post more details when they are available on Denverpost.com…

Avalanche statement:

The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club has issued the following statement regarding goaltender Semyon Varlamov:

"The Colorado Avalanche organization is aware of the allegations concerning Semyon Varlamov. At this time, and until the conclusion of this investigation, the Avalanche organization will have no further comment on this situation."

Patrick Roy was arrested for domestic assault on Oct 22, 2000. Now his goalie was arrested for the same thing on October 30, 2013. That's some Illuminati stuff. At least it should help my hockey pool.

#11682895 Horvat and Shinkaruk possibility of staying in Canucks team the whole season

Posted by 7thMan on 27 September 2013 - 09:12 PM

The biggest reason they were kept over Guance is that we wouldn't be able to recall them part way through the season. They'll get a short tryout, then probably go back to the minors. Guance and Corrado will probably play more games this year than either of them.

So, you move to a province where 80% of people speak primarily English without being fluent in English and then you're angry when you have trouble communicating?
