  1. Dear God I hope we don't get rolled against the Avs. I feel like a big loss is coming though.:picard:

      We'll get to see where this team is really at. Avs are on the road, so we've got the advantage, right? ;)

      i think we’ll be lucky to win 2 of the next 7 games. this is going to be a tough stretch of games. i wish the team well. i hope we can get some injured bodies back. just being realistic here.

      I don't know guys, this team did a great job last year getting up to play against a the healthy avs team and we have improved since then, and they are short a few bodies.  Have some faith :towel:

  2. I would honestly want Benning to try and get Taylor Hall. We NEED another scoring winger. If Petey line isn't going, we have no other option and it showed the pass couple of games.

      Obviously gutta throw in a second roundereh?

    3. canucklehead44


      @Nuxfanabroad Taylor Hall is going to be a free agent and will probably cost around 10M, the price we are paying for Loui Eriksson, Ryan Spooner's buyout, and the Luongo recapture haha.

    4. Ghostsof1915


      You won't get Hall now unless you gut the team of it's young talent. 

      You won't get Hall in the offseason unless you unload Sutter, walk away from Tanev  and trade Stetcher.

      That leaves a very big gap on the right side. 

      Do you trust Rafferty, Woo, Juolevi to fill that gap? 


      So you lose defensive depth and experience, for a top six winger. 


      That's a very Toronto thing to do.

      Agreed. But I think last night might have been a spark for him... when things get a little emotional that is when he seems to be at his best. 

  4. Petey is scoring in so many different ways that he hasn’t even brought out his go to back-hand, fore-hand move! :lol:B):P

    1. Ghostsof1915


      Here's what's scary. What's he going to be like at 23-24 when he fills out?

      I love the seemingly endless posts of "I had a dream..." Canucks-related. I don't believe I have had any specific hockey player dream, ever.

      pinch yourself

      and wake up

      stop living in a dream world :P


      come back to the real world

      cuz it has guardian in it

      and that is not a bad dream unfortunately


  7. Is this the day our franchise is blessed? Hockey Gods please we didn't tank bless us!!


    As long as the Oilers don't win I honestly don't even care.

      We'll get a good player no matter what.  I trust Benning.



      So Bob Mckenzie has Hughes all the way down to 9? would you guys be ok if we take him?

      Losers of 5 straight games. Last three without a goal... brutal. Seems like the puck goes to die on some players sticks right now. Ex. Gagner

    1. Show previous comments  2 more


      So you’re saying Vanek couldn’t even fetch a 5th or 6th rnd?

    3. Winter Soldier

      If he could have, he would. Move on.

    4. bree2


      it was already reported on  tsn that vanek was actually better than nash in the playoffs.  i like benning but he just embarrassed the organization.  i checked all the stats on both and the only thing nash is better on is speed. we give away a guy who has 41 points and pick up a guy with 5 points.


  13. I’d take a chance on Max Domi. Especially when his value is low right now.

    1. Alflives

      ...Assuming his value is low.

  14. I believe Pettersson will be a beast in the World Juniors but I've got a sneaky feeling that Juolevi will be our best prospect. I don't know why?

  15. DiPietro got cut :( atleast Gadjovich made it.

      Pretty nice to have even one guy make it.  I'm struggling to remember the last time a Canuck prospect who wasn't a first rounder made Team Canada.  Future looks bright and  getting cut looks like it will light a fire under Lind for sure.  Guy looked really, really choked to be cut.  :(

    3. Rounoush


      Bit of an emotional video of DiPietro. I like seeing how much he cares. Almost brought a tear to my eye.

    4. King Heffy

      King Heffy

      To see the guys care that much.... Gives me hope they'll leave it all on the ice for us too.  Must be devestating to get that close to playing for your country and not make it.

  16. Team Canada release Cody Glass :shock:

      The people butthurt we passed on Glass have already shut up months ago though.

    3. Alflives


      I’m not at all surprised about Glass getting cut.  He’s nothing extra special.

    4. coastal.view


      wow, so unless they cut alphabetically

      lind outlasted glass :P

      Who cares. Paterson and Botch are hacks.  Probably announcing their vows. 

  18. So we only got a second round pick for the best coach in the NHL???? We lose again :lol::emot-parrot:

      Shouldn't it read:



      The Canucks fired the best coach in the NHL?  They lose again!

      Hey Torts..Don't Push Us!!!

    4. stawns


      We should be jumping for joy that they got a 2nd pick for a guy they fired.  Firing him was absolutely the right move, he was poison

  19. No more Pizza comments in GDT LOL

    1. JM_


      how many times do we play Vegas?

    2. Squamfan


      at the draft we have a trade to anncouce


      the canucks trade the fifth pick to vegas exchange for Lucas Sbisa




  20. If the reports are true that Benning wants to move up, I fear that he would draft someone that we could have drafted at 5. Hope that's not the case.

    2. PunjabiCanucks


      I say trade Edler + CBJ 2nd for the 3OA + one of their goalie's contracts. 

      Trade Tanev for torontos 1st  (17 i think) and Kapenen. 

      maybe move our 17th and our 33rd for a top 12 pick?


      Could move our 33rd and 55th for an early 20th pick I believe

    3. Alflives




      PHONE JB NOW!!!!!!

    4. smithers joe

      smithers joe

      cdc? if we had 5 1st round picks, people would want 10. as it is now, if benning doesn't get the 3rd to go with our 5th than people will call for his head. 

      it is just a rumour.

  21. Casey Mittelstadt or Elias Pettersson #5thOA

    1. VanGnome


      I think if Mittelstadt is available at 5 sure, but that's too high to pick Pettersson. If Mittelstadt is gone at 5, trade down to gain additional assets (an extra 2nd and 3rd) to drop down for Pettersson.

    2. -AJ-


      I'm fine with Mittelstadt, Vilardi, or Glass. That said, the #5 position isn't one where there's an obvious pick, so trading down to #7 or #8 and grabbing an extra pick would be fine too.

  22. Omg guys!! I just woke up and had a nightmare, Canucks fell to 5th spot. Thank god it was just a nightmare.. pheww :bored:

      Dude, i had the same dream. Thankfully, the draft starts at 5 today. During the first intermission.



      Weird.. I'm all out of beer?

      Thank goodness you were just dreaming... :rolleyes:

  23. Good morning Canuck fans!

    May the odds be forever in our favor....


    Or be prepared to be disappointed. Let's do this.

    3. Ghostsof1915


      Does TSN know something? They've posted a video saying who should Vancouver take at #1 if they win the lottery....



      Probably to get us hyped, then we'll end up disappointed.. as usual.. wouldn't take it seriously.

  24. Woke up to Nikita going back to KHL. Hockey gods better let us keep the second pick this year and the first overall next year!:picard:

      Sad how we've become this kind of a team since we traded Kes, Bieksa, etc. winning the lottery would do this team wonders
