  1. Does Vintage have to reveal his true identity when he reaches 100k posts? :o

      VC is Mike Gillis.....I've never seen the two of them at the same time....

  2. Quit trying to trade goaltenders, people.

      aren't there 2 reasons to consider trading marky?

      he is an ufa after this season and remains unsigned

      so if his ask is not doable he needs to be traded this season


      even if he is resigned, the nucks have to deal with the upcoming expansion draft

      they must expose a goalie

      either marky or demko

      who they would then lose for no return

      if they both are as good as it appears they are

      that might be silly

      as the team could likely get a decent return in a trade

      and simply expose another lesser goalie in expansion

      forcing seattle to take a different position player off our roster


      so i think goalie movement discussion

      has some value

      the issue is when is the best time?


      tdl for marky is he is not resigned by then ?

      or let him walk ?

      Would you consider trading one of them if it got us a young top pairing right side Dman to play with Hughes?

  3. Likely. It's easy to connect the dots the way you want to and not in the order provided by the book.
  4. I like Sven but if he gets one more concussion he's done. It's a bad idea to put your hopes on what he can be when it's one little pop and he's gone forever.

      But you shouldn't base what you do with a player with what might happen. Any player can have a career or season ending injury. Send Ericsson down and if Baer gets injured call him up or someone else who has been impressing in the Ahl. 

  5. He'll handle it like a professional. It's a business. Have you never had an unexpected circumstance happen before? People expect that things like this and trading Dahlen will have some big effect on Bo and Petey when it reality it will do very little.
  6. Institute post count minimum requirements for the proposals board, please.

      Once I instituted a very low minimal expectations count on the Proposals forum my quality of life improved.

      Well get to work, Towel.

      @112, the reason most trade topics are hostile towards the OP is because most are just awful.


      @King Heffy just made one that is a really good concept, like it actually makes sense for both teams (which is more than I can say for a lot of em), but IMO the value isn't quite there.


      I think you'll find, if you look closely enough, OP's get roasted when it's a $&!# trade. Just impulsive "I want" threads with no basis in reality and as such leave no open door for dialogue.

      Sure I gave Heff a one liner, but that's only because the value wasn't there.


  7. I think too many people are down on Markstrom when he could hold down the crease for the next decade in Vancity.

    1. Fateless


      Who is actually down on Markstrom? I see more Demko trade proposals than Markstrom trade proposals which is a huge boon to Markstrom considering how expendable people viewed him this time last year. And now when Marky is included in a trade proposal, he's typically the key piece rather than a pot sweetener.

    2. Rounoush


      I haven't seen anybody down on either Markstrom or Demko. I think we totally keep them both right now. See how things develop.

  8. x happened in the playoffs, how can we leverage y to rob contending teams blind?

  9. Thankfully I was proven wrong. Still maintain that Kylington is gonna be legit, tho.
  10. Remember a few years back when people were pumping up Gaglardi as some super great owner compared to Aquilini? L O L

      No i don't remember

      I kind of wish Big Frankie came out and ripped Little Things Loui Eriksson a new one for stealing money.

  11. I'm continually amused by the way r/Canucks seems to look down on CDC, then you remember that the average redditor is 20 years old.

      lol i miss LaBamba, straight shooter wasnt a troll, but i like r/canucks because people there post gifs and pictures of certain hightlights of the game that most media doesnt, but i dont venture long there other wise.

      My username is "Alf's wingman".....yeah, I had one too many drinks when I made that decision.

  13. Quick vent. "I see/don't see x player as having a place on a contending team" is neither meaningful support or criticism of a player. It's a pointless statement.

  14. CDC won't be happy unless GMJB holds another general manager down at gunpoint and extracts third round picks for everyone. I would suggest yoga.

    1. SliteriousBlackbeard


      How do I make a status update?

    2. Odd.
    3. Odd.


      what does this update mean? basically what you're saying is that we have to be happy with JB's moves or....?


  15. Do people not understand that teams employ pro scouts for a reason? All this talk of 'showcasing players for a potential trade' is bollocks. Teams can pull up all the footage they want and will know exactly what kind of player they get and won't be magically surprised just because you put a a guy in a favorable position.

      well i would agree with you entirely in theory


      but some can still be fooled

      the canucks built up and show cased a certain cody

      to trade for zack who they hoped was the 2nd coming of neely

      and sabres seemed to bite on the illusion


      but maybe they think the same about the canucks and kassian

      that they sure fooled us

      except we didn't turn around and sign zack to some crazy contract

      like they did with cody and then bought him out within a year when they realized what they had done

      The Lock

      The problem with footage is you only get to see what the footage shows. You don't see what each player is doing away from the puck. You don't see the overall strategies taking place and how specific players are reacting to those strategies and systems.


      I'm sure they do use footage in tandem with scouts, but I don't think it would make sense to use just one or the other if you want to get the full picture.
