  7. We do not want Tortorello Here - Gillis give your fat head a shake! you are always too late to make any desicions- If Gillis hires Tortorello, the only reason is because he is under the gun, and has to do something- also, he knows Torts will take the heat off him for a while....so he has time to find himself a new job before he gets fired as well- MG - you could have had the cup.. a few years back- but you did'nt make the right trades (which is your job). if Tororello is hired - the rebuilding era will start next season after half the players get P'd off and don't want to play for him.

  9. No. Gillis already said Tortorella is strongly in the mix for the coaching position. And anyone that would want Keenan back clearly was not old enough to actually remember that era. He destroyed what was a good team at the time with tons of star talent.

  10. Waterlogged Flames Buoyed by good day at the Draft. After much speculation the Flames proudly selected Seth Jones first overall, After the draft GM Zen said "This was a hell of a draft the top 4 and maybe even 5 players all deserved a first overall pick, but for our organization Seth was the clear choice because a stud defenceman like him is rare and is exactly a hole we needed filled." With their second first round pick at 27 the Flames took Jones" WJC teammate Ryan Hartman. "Hartman is a kid with skill and who isn't afraid to get physical. He will do all the little things on the ice that help a team succeed and we see a bright future for him", said GM Zen. With their first pick of the second round at 32 the Flames selected JC Lipon of the Kamloops Blazers. "A lot of people may be shocked to see JC go so high in the draft but we felt with his stellar season this year that it would be a risk to not take him while we had the opportunity. JC really stepped up this year in Kamloops and we feel he is more then ready to make an impact at the NHL level." With their final pick of the draft the Flames took Ryan Fitzgerald at 44. "we were really happy to get Ryan with this pick, a lot of people are righting him off because of his size. What he lacks in size he makes up for with tremendous speed and skill and also smarts. We feel he could be a sleeper pick who could surprise everyone at the NHL level." GM Zen had this to say at the closing of the draft, "We are extremely happy to add Seth, JC, Ryan and Ryan to our organization. Along with Strome, Ferraro, McNabb, Shinniman, Korobov, Halischuk and Bailey we feel we have the makings of a great young core here in Calgary."

  12. YouTube is great for assessing how Tortorella treats the press, and really who cares if he puts them in their place; however a lot of opinions are being formed based on the HBO series. Come on, how much of that is reality TV?....do any of us really think he talks to the players like that game in, game out? From what I have seen he stands up for his players, holds the refs accountable, and brings a very aggressive, gritty style to the game. Just what we need here. Now, Gillis just has to make some deals. Thats what's been lacking.

  13. CDCGML Insider!!! Reports that some big names will be testing free agency have been ongoing for a while, but they appear to be ramping up as the July 25th deadline approaches. Sources indicate that Corey Perry has been speaking with agencies and is expected to hire an agent within the next few days as he surveys his options for next season. He's likely to have no shortage of suitors. Derek Roy has been rumored to be looking for an agent as well, but no sources could confirm this. After selecting top defence prospect Seth Jones at the draft on Thursday, Calgary has been devastated by flooding and massive renovations and repairs will be required at the Saddledome before the team can play there next season. Sources have suggested the team could play in a nearby arena in Red Deer while renovations continue. Upon seeing the flood images this morning, top draftee Seth Jones remarked that he "knew the team was in deep water, but this is ridiculous". With the arbitration deadline looming, there are rumblings that one or more players may choose to file before the 5:00pm deadline. Who those players are remain a mystery. As for team elected arbitration hearings, things have been very quiet in that regard as it seems teams may be reluctant to test the system in a year where the cap comes down. Speaking of cap crunch, a few teams are facing significant difficulty as free agency looms. Formerly a budget team, the Oilers are sitting $5 million dollars over the cap for next season presently, and still have a few holes to fill on the roster. Could trades be on the horizon? Or are they already in the works? A few other teams are in similar situations, so the trade market looks as though it could be pretty interesting this summer.

  22. I typically don't respond to posts that have insults in them however as it appears you don't understand what I mean here goes;- I didn't mean the Sedins would just pick up and leave, however after doing their jobs for so long too much negativity, punative approaches to player discipline can lead to a lack of motivation, not increase it - you are right in that lots of the reputation the canucks have developed with refs is based on what the players have done, however referees aren't stupid, they know who supports the players, and who tells them how to handle certain situations. Any NHL coach studies the referees and tries to react accordingly. Some are good at it, others just blow their stacks and get into an antoginizing relationship with them. Yes, tuning out or tuning in is key. Sure, that could apply to any coach, however who are players more likely to listen too, someone who tries to inspire performance, or someone who tries to beat it out of players? In terms of the "gamble" I talk about, there is also the issue of attracting players/free agents to the Canucks. Do you think this has become easier or harder now?

  23. Ramsay also served the very important role of being "good cop" so to speak. He acted as a buffer between the rough edges of Tors and the players, at least if you believe what you read about the situation in TB. I think he would be a great addition for that aspect. I still think they need a special teams specialist too though. Someone that can really get the PP and PK back to an elite level. We have the personnel, we just need the strategy and the adjustments that Brown could not bring at the end.

  30. After watching the Vancouver Sun's sub par piece by Iain McIntyre on John Tortorella being hired by the Canucks, the following is true. The sports media in Vancouver is pathetic. They are full of venom on the page, but put them on digital media where they have to work the camera, and they show how little charm or true knowledge they possess. The reporters have little to no guts, when it comes to their subjects. They ask the tough questions, but lack the fortitude for the answers. They advertise what they believe will help the team, but when decisions are made, they cower in the corner like the rats they are. In closing, I feel that Tortorella is the answer for the team because he will make them accountable. For this very same reason, he is the Canucks answer to the impotent and gutless media they have had to deal with for the last seven years. Lipschtiz out!

  31. No, it's exactly the opposite. This is the media's dream candidate. The journalists, the radioheads, and the TV analysts exist to get fans to click on their product. Tortorella, if he's indeed the hire, is gonna do more than half their jobs for them. Willes is afraid? What's that scum Tortorella gonna do, call him a name?

  34. Honestly, I felt a little like this at the thought of Torts at the helm. I like his passion, his brutal honesty and no holds barred approach. I think it could make or break us. It may be just what we need to bring attention to the piss poor officiating. Or it could make it worse - we'll see. He could crack a whip on the guys and have them fully exert themselves every game, or he could create friction and become a distraction. For me, it's 50/50 and I'm just not sure yet. Someone who's going to call you out without holding back may ruffle feathers and the ultimate goal is to motivate, not disrupt and discourage. Just not sure how it'll go....

  36. Hello Fellow GM's, I am looking forward to this offseason and next hockey season and it seems like the majority of the organizations have dedicated managers.. I have seen that the Columbus Bluejackets have yet to move to the Eastern Conference where they truly belong and I would like to move to the East with the NY teams for the 2013-2014 season. I have one last thing to say to all of you, Nananananana...

  41. 2014 CDCGML Entry Draft The draft will begin on June 20, 2013 at 5:00pm Pacific time. The guidelines are as follows: - For the first round, teams will have 5 minutes to make their selection. In the 2nd and 3rd rounds, teams will have 3 minutes to make their selection. - Please do not post your draft pick until you are called by the commissioner. The time to make your selection begins when your turn is called. - Trading is permitted during the draft. - Teams not present during the draft will not be awarded the "best player available". You must be present to make your draft selection, and if you cannot be present, please submit a draft list to canuck2xtreme. If everyone on your list is already gone, you will be passed over. - Missed draft picks can be made up at the end of the round during the 10 minute intermission between rounds, or after the draft. Players eligible to be drafted must be 20 years old or younger and not drafted by anyone in our league in previous seasons.

  43. FAQs How do I join this game? Send a PM to canuck2xtreme explaining why you want to join and why you feel you would be a good addition to the game. There is a steep learning curve if you are not familiar with the style of the game, so make sure you read our Collective Bargaining Agreement so you are sure you are willing to commit to the game. What happens if my team is not over the cap floor or is over the cap ceiling when the season starts? Teams that have not submitted a cap compliant roster (both active and minors) are not entered into the database to collect points. Any longer than 3 days, and a change in management is likely. During the off-season you can go over the cap by 10% maximum, but need to be compliant when the season begins. What happens if I make a trade or sign a player and it puts me over the cap? Any trade or signing that would put either team over or under the salary cap guidelines set forth above will be rejected by the league and will not be processed. To avoid headaches, simply make sure your trades and signings leave you cap compliant. What if I get banned from CDC? Can I keep GMing my team via email and instant messenger? No. This game is based on CDC and therefore getting yourself banned from CDC effectively removes you from the game. We have tried this in the past and it's not a tenable situation.

  44. Rumour Mill - The Bruins have been listening to offers for the 1st overall draft pick, but the price tag is said to be very high. - The Avalanche have dismissed rumblings that the 4th overall pick could be in play, but rumors persist, so there may be something to it. - It seems that Joe Thornton contract talks have hit a snag, and the Rangers may be looking at moving the big center. - The Winnipeg Jets are rumored to be looking to move up in the draft.
