      That contraption looks fishier than an aquarium! Glad we weren't involved in this shady scheme!

      It's still easy to rig it while it's live.  Just ask the Ewing and the Knicks

      Imagine if we play Dallas. It'll get so confusing

  4. Just out of curiosity, am I one of the few people who wish there be NO MORE ANTHEM at the start of ALL games?

      @Tre Mac I dont know why you are getting so upset. I am entitled to my own opinion and so are you. I am just asking because I'm curious to see who feels the same way. I guess you just have a proud sense of nationalism. I personally do NOT see any point in playing the anthem and I'm sure there are a fair amount of hockey players that just stand there and dozz off or at least maybe tune it out during the anthem. The only reason y I feel its still played is because of tradition. 

       

      In terms of your comment of putting my face out there, I ain't got time for that. Thats why im just here asking people's opinions and how they feel about it. Boy.. you sure are nationalist. 

       

      Oh and to your previous comment, yea I told my grandparents Im not a fan of any national anthem and they were like whatever. U do u.

      I like the anthems, but I wish they were done quicker, with a little more pep :metal:

  5. I wanted to ask how did Mike Gillis circumnavigate the cap? What is wrong with back diving contracts?

      The penalty just stunk because the league ALREADY APPROVED the contract when it was first submitted to them.  They only retro-actively decided to punish the Canucks AFTER THE FACT.  

       

      One can accept that life often isn't always fair....but what REALLY stinks is a number of teams have had their possible penalty lessened (eg., Weber).  But the Canucks as usual get the shaft.

      @Where's Wellwood What I don't understand is why are we getting punished for that. It was WITHIN THE RULES of that CBA. Yes, the CBA has changed, but it was signed before the new CBA. I think Gillis did a genius move that was within the rules

    4. Ghostsof1915

      Ghostsof1915

      I don't call it a genius move when it only saved what $1.2 million per year give or take?  Carey Price was making $6.5 million as of 2012-13 and for 6 years. Gillis pushed the envelope. And the team has made to suffer for it. Had Gillis given Luongo a similar contract. He would have found it way easier to trade him, and probably gotten better return. 

       

      Yes it sucks the league retroactively punished Vancouver. It's probably costing Gillis on getting another GM gig again. 

  6. Alright y'all one of u wanted me to ask petey about losing to the wild. Instead, i asked gaud cuz he was streaming

       no tanking we probably beat wild in play in round  kool and see wat happens in playoffs if not  we get a 1/8 chance to draft the french kid   its a win win situation

      @luckylager "Get out there and play to lose" said no coach ever.  The on-ice product during Willie D's time  sure felt like he said that to the players when he was here :lol:

    4. Phil_314

      Phil_314

      PR purposes or not, I don't see why he would say he wants to lose.  Even recreational athletes wanna give it their all and win.

  7. This is very stupid indeed but I saw a video where OTT will trade their 5th overall for a 1st line player. Would anyone here do JT Miller for 5th overall. I know this will NEVER happen but just outta curiosity.

      That's good value, but like AJ said it'd be stepping back towards rebuild territory. Sooner or later this team needs to compete, and this season was a strong step towards that. I want them to trend up, not draft shiny prospects high forever. 

    3. Nuxfanabroad

      Nuxfanabroad

      Good call, DM. May 31st I saw Ottawa selling this pick to TBay(humongous deal)..had to bump it.

    4. Phil_314

      Phil_314

      No to Miller.  He's too valuable as a jack-of-all-trades guy with high end skill.  Agreed with W.W., Pete still needs his help with face-offs.  I'm in the camp for either Toffoli (great fit with the other two but costs an extra pick if retained) or Boeser (younger and with upside but if we go with Toffoli and Virtanen he's definitely a cost-controlled asset which can yield a good return).  If possible I'd like to see if we could toss in a sweetener and also get Jacob Bernard-Docker (late first round pick, also RHD), really liking what I'm seeing out of him during his season with ND.  That way we can address two of our "weaker" prospect areas, in LW and RD.

      @DontMessMe Well props for having some balls to ask him at least, haha.

       

      Gotta say I'm more on Gaud's side though, haha.

  9. GUYS.. LETS JUST LOSE :) 

  10. To clear our cap problems to be able to sign BOTH Markstrom and Toffoli, I believe we should TRADE PEARSON for a 3rd rd pick. Hell.. I might even do a 4th. Why Pearson? Cuz who wants Beagle/Roussel/Bear cheese

      there's no choice really. That 1.025 mil in cap space by sending him down will be needed, and really once his bonus is paid in a few weeks what else does he really need to accomplish? If he wants to play somewhere else all he needs to do is not report to Utica and his contract will be terminated.

  12. IF WE LOSE IN THE PLAY-IN ROUND... DO WE STILL GIVE OUR 1ST RD PICK TO NJD!?!?!?!?

      @Where's Wellwood Are play-in's considered playoffs though?

      According to LeBrun, no

      @Where's Wellwood Ahh ok thanks! That addresses my concern then. If we LOSE in play-in to wild we keep our pick. If we win, then the pick goes to NJD! :)

  13. Would u rather have Brackett or Benning? Pick one only

      Brackett would be my pick. 

    3. I.Am.Ironman

      I.Am.Ironman

      For me it's Benning. We have already gone through the growing pains of a GM learning on the fly with Benning. I don't see why we would want to go through the same with another new GM in Brackett. This team is a product of Benning more than Brackett imo.

    4. Ghostsof1915

      Would you rather have your lungs stop working or your heart?

      You're pretty much dead without both of them.

      Next Question. 

       

  14. I saw on twitter somewhere canucks are scouting the Kings a lot. Maybe toffoli? 

     

    What would it cost? Virt + prospect like Gadj? 

     

    But hes a rental so idk :/

      Trading Virt would be very foolish.  Virt is built for playoff hockey.

      Playoff teams need depth throughout the lineup. Virt gives us that. 

    3. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      Frustrating as he can be, I'm not interested in moving Jake. Not terribly interested in Toffoli either. We've got too many forwards as is. 

    4. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      Only benefit of acquiring Toffoli in an exchange for Baer is that Toffoli's contract is about to be up whereas Sven's got another year. Is Baer, Goldy and a 2nd worth the cap flexibility LA would gain by flipping Toffoli or letting him walk? 

       

      Would we be acquiring Toffoli to let him walk? 

  15. Prediction time (gonna get lots of hate but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. 

     

    Canucks r gonna MISS the playoffs and finish 5th or 6th in the Pacific. Then we proceed to win the lottery getting the #3 pick.

      Nope, not a playoff team.

      don't forget, at the start of the season we were all content with fighting for that last wildcard spot. I do think that is still possible once Roussel and Beagle return, and IF we can maintain some injury luck on the d group. 

    4. DontMessMe

      I'd love a crack at the lottery again
