  1. They can have Holtby with 100% salary retained, if I can punch Marchand in the face. Final offer.

  2. Looks to me like you are the only one trying to stir controversy no where did it say he was going to be leaving.

  4. People saying "who?" as if they're owning JB are actually just showing they don't really pay attention to the league. This is a useful player and a nice change from JB flipping 2nds for unsuccessful projects.

  6. I think he’s suggesting Schmidt is one of these.

  7. He used both our compliance buyouts, spends to the cap every year, and bought our AHL affiliate outright. Anyone who thinks Aquilini is cheap never experienced our previous owners.

  8. OEL averaged more points per game than Ryan Ellis, Seth Jones, Miro Heiskanen, Shayne Gostisbehere, Keith Yandle, and just behind Pietrangelo. On a crap team where he knew he wasn't wanted. All this talk about how he has declined so much? His offensive points per game in the last 8 years 0.55 0.52 0.73 0.49 0.51 0.54 0.45 0.52 Incredibly consistent. He has also been one of the top 20 hitters for defenseman in the last 4 ye

  9. So much just plain really bad information circles around the NHL - so many 'analysts' and would-be-experts publishing on a limitless internet - that it's no wonder you get so many horrible takes on players. Was just curiosity-seeking - where all the "one of the NHL's worst contract" comments are coming from.... First thing I read - and I'm not going to link to / create traffic for / encourage anyone to create content like this - but the first article I read was arguing to avoid Ekman-Larson - suggesting alternative, 'better' targets.....one of them being.....Gostisbeher

  10. I feel like Jake's biggest problem may have been a bit of immaturity that just interfered with his professional life. It's hard for young people to juggle a bit of fame and fortune and not everyone navigates those waters well. He had such promise but just didn't ever seem "all in" with respect to focus and commitment. And seems to have made some bad decisions along the way? In learning of the accusations against him, that was the final straw for me (if proven true). No turning back because there were already "issues" and so putting himself into a position to succee

  11. My take: We traded a lottery ticket, a scratch-and-sniff, and trash for A top pair Dman and a 2nd line point machine And 7M/Year is fair for OEL. The increasing cap over the next few seasons will only make this look better. Good trade for Vancouver! And this is coming from someone who was very high on McTavish/Johnson

  14. I've said it in another thread and I'll say it again here. Eriksson, Holtby, Luongo, Beagle, Roussel, (and maybe Virtanen) are all off the books a year from now. The Canucks just need to stay the course this year. Don't buy out Eriksson, don't trade the 9th overall, and let the kids play.

  15. So just a thought... LE - $6M Beagle - $3M Roussel - $3M TOTAL - $12M out OEL - $7M Garland - At least $4M to re-sign TOTAL - $11M in So... we basically converted those 3 useless players into 2 useful ones for the same cap hit.

  16. He's played 40 games for Dallas in the playoffs including every game in the Stanley Cup final last year in the bubble. To suggest he's an AHL player at this point shows your complete lack of knowledge of the NHL game...

  20. How much do people expect top pairing Defenceman be paid ? He will be turning 35 at the end of his deal, not 45. Garland is a huge player in this deal as well.

  21. Wow “@JDylanBurke has more on the trade, one he considers a clear win for the Canucks” Remember this day, folks. JD Burke just said that Benning won a trade!

  22. Reading some of the comments in here shows that people really don't follow the league at all. This trade is fantastic and Dickinson will be a great 3c option with the ability to move up the lineup when needed. People saying this is a bad trade or "Is this all Benning can do?" need to stop talking and go learn about the player before coming here to comment.

  24. I don't know why there are so many cynical, sarcastic, nasty posters who claim to be fans but just crap on our team every chance they get. I know we have some overpaid guys. I know we are in a capcrunch to improve. Get over it. We just lost Lind who nobody projected in our starting 12 on opening day. Not a big loss considering. I for one am pumped about next year. I love EP, Boes, Horvat, Hughes, Miller, Demko, Schmidt. Can't wait to see OJ, Rathbone, Hogz, Motte become bigger contributors. Dickinson is a great add. I think Myers and Pearson are much better contributors th

  25. "Dickinson can go unnoticed to casual hockey fans. He’s a fourth-line center — and occasional top-six winger — who is among the team’s best at killing penalties and shutting down top opponents with his speed and smarts. He’s a former first-round pick who has become a reliable everyday player in Dallas, not with his offense but with his responsible defense". Looks like we found our C for the penalty kill. Will take a load off of BO as well for defensive matchups.

  26. We convinced a team to pay a player 1.2 million dollars per year not to play for them for 6 years and we unloaded LE in the same transaction. Sign me up and I don’t even know enough about Garland yet.

  28. Zero issue with this, the team has 3 NHL defensemen under contract. Edler is severely underrated and is still a serviceable veteran. Hamonic would be a bonus and that still leaves room for the team to add depth for the upcoming season. I bet you see an immediate shift in utilizing the defense with Shaw on board as well.

  30. I'm still just so pumped for this trade. We have been scoring lots of 5 goal games with our talent, and now we add another 40+pt dman AND Garland, who is a points machine? Holy moly we're going to surprise a lot of people this year, but I, for one, will not be surprised in the least.

  32. the 2nd (and 7th) make no difference to me. there are lots of opportunities to recoup 2nd rounders. still a hell of a trade. conor garland will be an excellent top 9 addition and I personally believe oel will be revitalized playing somewhere that isn't poison.

  33. Not so bad when realizing we’re dumping three toxic contracts and getting OEL and Garland. The cost to dump a toxic contract like Loui’s last year is our first. So I’m okay with this. Let’s get back to the playoffs!
