  1. Doesn’t really change anything significant as LTIR cap doesn’t count anyway
  2. Fair enough, I’ll admit I don’t know much about most of these guys but Schenn Hamonic better not be significant pieces to our team, otherwise we aren’t any better especially losing Edler for what was a reasonable contract. The love for Schenn and Hamonic is bizarre, both didn’t impress me at all, they filled holes, and often had too many holes themselves. I hope it works out and these new guys are an upgrade
  3. I wasnt referring to this contact at all, it was a comment about finally getting rid of bad contracts and buyouts the going and buying more out. Nothing about Garland
  4. I hate to be a downer but it sounds like quantity over quality.
  5. My point is, we’ve had 22 million in penalties with buyouts, inherited cap recapture penalties and burying players in the minors on bad contracts. One remains in Luongo that goes away next year, then we just go and load up again. Freedom was so close. It’s like going right back into debt when you finally see the light in the tunnel.
  6. Except dont we have to eat Holtby’s buyout for two years?
  7. It was a joke, especially since Benning seems to love buying out people. Besides it’s a knock on Benning, not Garland.
  8. Or just looking to be bought out next year and cashing a good cheque
  9. Terrible idea, I’m tired of cap penalties dragging on, all we had was Luongo left for 1 year now we are two more. We need a backup anyways and we’ll be paying a decent amount so the cap penalty plus the backup would be holtby’s contract, except now we are penalized next year too
  10. True, fans at that time were frustrated that we never draft a BC boy and our team was full of Swedes. Marketing nightmare taking Nylander, but I still would have done it.
  11. He’s not going to use his size and strength with lack of talent to dominate the nhl. You need more than speed and strength.
  12. No Benning was desperate on drafting a BC boy on his first draft to appease the fans. He was a bigger faster stronger player in the WHL and that doesn’t translate to the nhl
  13. Our coach isn’t our problem. Having 20 million of tied up salary cap in players not on the team is our problem. Imagine Toffoli and Tanev still being here with leftover cap for Petey and Hughes.
  14. Giving up your rights for complete control of your injured future into the hands of an insurance company should be more than a measly 190 a year
  15. Funny how people tell others to walk away from 6 million
  16. Not a big fan of this one, and I usually like all of our goalies’ masks.
  17. Not like this clip matters, but I’d choose with the sound
  18. Aquilini should worry about his salary cap rather than his anthem singer.
  19. Don’t worry, there is still Buffalo

    1. Where's Wellwood

      Where's Wellwood

      We'd still be tied for oldest

      I'd really rather SJ win in. With how good Thornton has been throughout his career, and how he's playing at 39 years old is insane.

      I love the idea of Thornton choking his entire career

  20. It’s going to be a long season

    1. Cramarossa


      Dare I say I'm glad to also be a Yotes fan because at least they're looking promising :unsure:

    2. Brad Marchand

      Brad Marchand

      5th overall pick, here we come.

      I can't wait for the Canucks to have a long season.  Like one that extends into May, or June.  Heck, even mid-April would be exciting!

  21. mpt

    It certainly helps, but he still has to show up and prove himself 

  22. Yes we will be terrible enough!

  23. Please just sign him already and get him over here for the last 8 games
  24. Ugh... good prospect, but I still would've tried to add another skater rather than a G. Demko is a better prospect at face value, so I don't think it's a priority. Great goalie prospect though, huge in the memorial cup
