    Other than NHL hockey (Canucks fan): other sports I enjoy watching are NFL football (Steelers fan) and PGA Golf.

    Big fan of heavy metal music (Iron Maiden, Amon Amarth, Sabaton, Lamb of God, Arch Enemy, Cavalera Conspiracy, Dark Tranquility, Insomnium).

    Enjoy travel, been all over North America, but I've also been to Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Mexico and the Caribbean, Singapore).

    I really enjoy running, and since 1990 I've finished 30 half marathons and 24 full marathons.

  1. Sounds like it's a real possibility that VAN signs Khaira. If so, the Canucks will be a much tougher team to play against. Old Bottom 6 Roussel - Sutter - Gaudette Motte - Beagle - Eriksson New Bottom 6 Hoglander - Dickinson - Podkolzin Motte - Khaira - MacEwen oh yes, much tougher to play against
  2. What if OEL plays his best hockey in VAN? I know he's older (30), and some may feel his best days are behind him, but I think there's lots left in the tank. He unhappily toiled in the desert his whole career, and still managed to produce. VAN has Brad Shaw to work with the D. He won't necessarily be relied on to be the #1 guy, nice to have Quinn Hughes as your team mate. There's great support for him here with the Sedins. Maybe we haven't seen what OEL can actually do yet. I know, super optimistic, but 30 isn't that old and should have 4-5 good years left. Now go get that Cup.
  3. Thinking they'll sign Khaira Hoglander - Dickinson - Podkolzin Motte - Khaira - MacEwen Much improved bottom 6
  4. Klimovich sounds like a violent beast. Awesome, he'll come in handy when we play Boston
  5. So Podz and the Breadman were enjoying a sauna, and now you want to trade him?
  6. So, losing Seth Jones and Werenski? They'll need D (Schmidt)
  7. Gotta say, EKMAN-LARSSON on the back of a Canucks sweater will look real good. I'd say, right now, in a weaker Pacific division, the Canucks will be a playoff team next season. The next couple of moves could really improve the team, defensively. Adding OEL is good, and re-signing Hamonic too, but they need more on D. More size and snarl please.
  8. I'd be happy with them re-signing Hamonic and signing UFA Montour OEL - Montour Hughes - Hamonic Juolevi - Myers Rathbone
  9. What are thoughts on a Kuznetsov and a 1st for Horvat and Schmidt trade?
  10. Hawryluk not qualified. Hearing they're targeting Khaira
  11. Yes, he's risky, but if he ever pans out - what a pick! That's a big IF, though
  12. A lot (almost everyone) is really concerned with OEL's salary, still 6 years at around $7.2. That is a lot, but will it be a crazy amount in 3-5 years? Or the standard for a Top 4 Dman? I think the move to VAN will rejuvenate OEL, a fresh start, probably feels like a young guy again with his excitement. If OEL wins a Cup in VAN, is the trade worth it? I'm trying not to focus on the money with this deal, but more of what can the Canucks accomplish over the next 5 years. Maybe this was an ownership decision. Bring him in, and if needed, they can buy out the last year of his contrac
  13. Schmidt, Miller and 4th (2022) to WAS for Kuznetsov and Dillon Pettersson -Kuznetsov - Boeser Hoglander - Horvat - Garland Podz gets Kuz
