  3. So Trump is looking to invade Mexico and Canada and form an all US state in North America? Is he also looking to kill off any US citizens who don't agree with his policies and set up concentration camps for those who protest? Some people should really read up on Hitler before they compare anyone on this planet to him, it might be an interesting history lesson for alot of you...

  5. Barring him having a garbage camp (in which case he belongs in Utica and would very likely pass waivers), he'll be 8th D IMO. He'll get slow integration and a LOT of time with coaches and practicing. Hopefully by the time injuries start happening, he'll have enough practice and have adjusted more to thinking the speed of the game at this level. He's physically ready, he just needs to adjust to the speed and settle in a bit. Slow and steady, standard WD treatment should do the trick.

  6. Well, I guess it's time to write off Juolevi. I mean, he is already 18, was drafted a whole 3 months ago, was playing with players he'd had maybe 4-5 practices with in the first games of the year and he STILL made a couple bad plays. Like, who cares about all the little things he did right, you know, 98% of his play. Obviously he busted. #shouldhavedradtedTkschmuck

  7. NOTICE TO GM'S While we still have time, October 1st (next week Saturday) is the last day to submit your 3 players you wish to use your ELC Slides on. Decisions don't have to be made today, but as soon as you know who you wish to use these slides on, best to get it out of the way.

  9. Just an aside, I keep on reading this same refrain from folks I call the tank nation crew... 'If you take the Sedins out of the lineup, try putting together a top six yada, yada...' Or some variation. The thing is, they are still in the lineup, and will likely be for a few more years, so we do have a top six with them right? So riddle me this, take away every teams two best forwards, would it make it hard to put together a top six? Are people just ... Well, dumb? It's like saying 'if you take a wheel off your bicycle, you will have a harder time riding it.'

  11. At least the Bats have a real excuse today for not hitting they were up against Felix the King, an actual CY Young pitcher. It's the games when they're not facing a CY Young pitcher and they choke, that can't happen. As much as it sucks losing I can at least accept this loss, compared to others when they shouldn't be losing.

  13. That leaves just Colorado @Brad Marchand and Ottawa @Stamkos @meh_wassup as the only teams over the cap. Washington @Jam126 and Vancouver @JimLahey don't meet roster requirements. If any team has RFA's or unsigned players that they want in their lineup, better sign them soon!

  14. The Devils would like to thank GM Stamkos for his time during negotiations. This move puts the Devils at this time salary cap compliant without taking away from our active roster. It was important to move out assests not affecting our roster while we become cap compliant, now more traditional hockey trades can be worked on without cap being used as leverage. The loss of a 2nd round pick is substantial indeed but to seal the deal to be able to compete it was a no brainer.

  16. I understand protecting them from contact, but I'd rather my kids learn to absorb hits by their friends in practice who aren't trying to rip their heads off, than not do it in practice, not really know how to protect yourself, and have some kid from another city on Friday night hit him as hard as he possibly can. When the body doesn't know how to take a hit, it goes limp right before contact which is when you get whiplash and whatnot. The kids that play community ball as well as high school, you can tell they know how to take a hit because they get more contact during the week.

  21. Immigration has been an issue for a long time, and Clinton is hardly the only one to have brought it up during elections. If he had proposed building a wall there might be something there. What's more interesting is how long they've debated that topic and done almost nothing to fix it. The greatest military and economic power in the world can't even secure it's own border? Give me a break. This has been an issue created to divide and distract voters from the real issues for decades. They have no plan to actually fix it.

  22. Ha. Totally, I'm way too much of a homer to even give the Canucks prospects an objective assessment let alone a negative one. I'm the guy who thinks the Canucks have an honest shot at the Cup at the start of every year. Smart-assery is just a part of my nature.

  24. Sbisa isn't gonig to be waived, he will be on the team. If they need to move him, there will be takers. I expect anyone who can be sent down without clearing waivers will be sent down. We go through a lot of defense during the year. There will be lots of room for guys to be called up and get games. Sbisa takes a really hard rap on this board, but when you look at numbers last year, we really struggled in our own zone when he was injured. We really missed his physical style of play.

  26. Trump is not Hitler, nor does he have the same intent as Hitler, which would be to wipe out an entire religion/ethnicity/threat to national security. But I think what people are thinking when they compare Hitler and Trump is more about their respective fundamental beliefs and core values. Think of it as a totalitarian way of thinking. I think it looks and sounds like this: 1. Both believe that their nation's problems are caused by outsiders, people who are not like us. 2. Both believe that what is needed is increased national security, to protect us from threats from people wh

  28. If anything, it is his gap control that is his biggest downfall. He allows the player too much space to establish position and since 90% of the players he faces will be bigger than him, its harder to knock them off the puck once he does engage them physically. Of course, as a defender you don't want to be too aggressive in positioning, but he seems too content holding them at a distance and then engaging. But that allows them to get set. You see the small dman of the league like Krug, Vatanen, and Ellis, they engage the opposition aggressively...not allowing a lot of room, despi

  30. Yep. You need guys like them to give the regulars like Grilli, Benoit and Osuna the night off. As a bonus, they both pitched well. The only reliever we saw last night who's likely to get time in the post season was Cecil.

He was one of the players who stood out from the Young Stars Classic and will continue to impress at the main camp. http://theprovince.com/sports/hockey/nhl/vancouver-canucks/canucks-fans-are-going-to-love-troy-stecher Canucks fans are going to love Troy Stecher JASON BOTCHFORD Published: September 19, 2016 Updated: September 19, 2016 10:39 PM PDT Filed Under: The Province Sports Hockey Vancouver Canucks PENTIC

  33. Sure, but other than Detroit, what team has had a seemless transition from core to core. Datsuyk and Zetterberg were late picks. I cannot think of another club in modern times do the same thing as Detroit. Most teams have a serious drop from line 1 to 2. We are improving, but there are still big holes. Even when we had the west coast express and the twins, it was hardly a smooth transition. If we can almost all agree on one thing, JB is very astute at the draft table. There is a few more years to go before the succession has to happen, we could already have thos

  34. Another interview with Pedan, this time from Kuzma at The Province. Like the last one, I'll post the quotes from Pedan and let people click the link for the full article. http://theprovince.com/sports/hockey/nhl/vancouver-canucks/pedan-plans-to-secure-canucks-spot-and-avoid-waiver-wire Loving how fired up Pedan sounds. I hope he really brings it from day one of camp and leaves no doubt as to who deserves to crack those final spots on D.

  35. This is the thing. Championship teams need players like Brendan Gaunce. A Bottom 6 dependable guy that can match up and defend against other top lines. Either at center or on the wing. You need depth. I see Gaunce, with his versatility playing a role on this team for a while. He can fit in, in multiple ways.

  36. I used to listen to my mom and dad's Johnny Horton records way back when. At first it was for The Battle of New Orleans and Sink the Bismark, but then I discovered all of his other stuff. I couldn't decide on which version, so I posted both. This one has old style pornography to go along with the song.

  43. Usually the first couple episodes of anything takes a bit to get through. It's understandable because the show is trying to find it's footing. Which characters need more fleshing out and where to take the story. However, episode one (and two) were so good. At no point have I thought, "It's alright, but they need time to sort things out because obviously they're trying to work out the kinks." Every episode is on point.

  46. I'm not sure why people are already saying Olli won't make the team. He had some bad mistakes this game but besides that, he still played well. I don't think you can decide on how good the kid is, based on two games. I think he's one of the best passers on the team, both games and has been quite calm with the puck. I've really liked what I've seen in the last two games from our boys. They're all working so hard. I love it.

  48. I think you may have selectively chosen the best stat to support your position. Yes, based on his Canuck stats only for 39 games, it equates to 15 goals a year, but the fact is he has never scored more than 7 goals in any of his four season in the NHL, although he has only played in about a half season in most of those years. If you take a look at all the stats, they mostly point to about 10/11 goals per year, based on games/goals in a 82 game season. Total NHL - 11; Last 2 years - 10; Last season - 10. Based only on his half season with the Canucks, he received a lot of ice ti
